We tear I or the result for we have but few men in the State who are properly educated ami rain ed for such positions.

' Raleigh seems to have a rnn on shocking and deplorable sensations. The CrosH and White steal, followed by the Father Boyle so.mda', and now, worst of all, the disgusting de tails ot the Insane Asylum investi gation. Dr. (rrisHom, the Superin tendent of the Asylum, is charged with improper and 'immoral con duct t iwr.rd inmates and attendants, cruelty to inmates and misappropri ation of State funds. If a tenth of the charges preferred against him are true, then ho is unfit to hold any position of trust or profit. Dr. Oris som, however, denies all these charge?, but even if he is guilty of none of them, the Board of Direc tors could make no mistake in re moving him from the important po sition which he holds. A citizen of Ilichbirg, Miss., (10") miles from New Orleans(, on last Monday, might have beheld a very peculiar and demoralizing spectacle, lie might have seen two men inside a ring pel tin- each other fiercely with their fists, while a crowd press ed around, shouting, yelling and cheering them on, at the same, bet ting and gambling, on which of the two men would' knock the breath out of the other first. Who were these two men? They were two brutes, Sullivan and Kilrain, engag ed in a modern abomination, kuown as prize fighting. Where did these prize fighters come from? They left Boston last woek on their way South, looking for some place where they could fisticuff each other without be ingarreste I. But the most demoral izing and degrading thing connected with these criminals and their fight, is the fact that on their journey South they were toasted, treated and banqueted at every station at which they stopped a heres of the hour, and in addition to this -the daily press has surfeited its -readers with a detailed and minute account of the movement?, actions and expressions of these two social excreences. The President of the United States "and his whole cabinet on a trip to New Orleans would hot have received half of the attention from people or the Prcsi. that the.-) two bume. did. On Tuesday, the day after the fight, hero comes the daily papers, State as well as National, with four or five columns, describing the disgusting details of that brutal fight before a degenerate and howling mob; and this too in a civilized and christian age. Can it be that this is the day break of an enlightened and refined 20th century? Whither is the world drifting? Is the millennium not losing ground? The - Associated Press is to some extent responsible for the people of this country being iea on euch literary slops and poison but the papers receiving these dis patches should use some discretion between publishing instrutcive news ami low and corrupting sensations. N. Y., July 7. Talmarre. f Ti preached hero today on tho subject: 'Our nousoon tho Hills. His text was John xiv, 2: "In my Father's houso aro many rooms." IIo said : Horo in a bottla of mcdicino that ii a euro all. Tho disciples wcro tod and Christ offered heaven as an alterna tive, a stimulant und a tonic. lie show them that their . sorrows aro Only a dark background of a bright picture, of coming felicity IIo Fete them know that though now they livo on tho lowlands thev shall yet have a houso on tho uplands. Nearly all tho Biblo descriptions of heaven may bo figurative. 1 am not positive that in all heaven tlici-o is a literal crown or harp or pearly gato or throne or char iot. They may bo only used to illus trate tho glories of tho place, but how well they do it I The favorite symbol by which tho Biblo presents celestial happiucs3 is a house. Paul, who never owned a house, although he hired ono for two years in Italy, speaks of heav en as a "houso not mado with hands." aud Christ in our text, tho translation of which is a little changed so as to give tho inoroaccurato meaning, says: "In my Father's houso are many rooms. " This divinely authorized compari son of heaven to a great homestead of largo accommodations I propose to car ry out. In somo healthy neighborhood a man builds a very commodious hab itation. He must have room for all his children. Tho rooms como to be called after tho different membere of tho family,' That is mother's room. That is George's room. That is Hen ry's room. That is Flora's room. That is Mary's room. And tho houso is all occupied. But ti mo goes by and the sons go out into tho world and build their own homes aud tho daughters' aro married or have talents enough singly to go out and do a good work in tho world. After a while tho fa ther and mother are almost alono in tho big houso and, seated by tho even ing stand, they say: "Well, our fam ily is no larger now than when we started together forty years ago." But time goes still further by "andsome of tho children are unfortunate and re turn to tho old homestead to live, and tho grand-children, come with them, and perhaps crreat-erandchildren. and again tho houso is full. Many millen nia ago God built on tho hills of heav en a groat homestead for a family in numerable, yet to bo. At first he lived alono in that great house, but after a whilo it was occupied by a very largo family, cherubic, seraphic, angelic. Tho eternities passed on and many of tho inhabitants becamo wayward atwl left never to return. And many of the apartments wcro vacated. I refer to tho fallen angels. Now these apart mcnts aro filling up again. Thero aro arrivals at tho old homestead of God's children every day, and tho day will como when thero will be no unoccu pied room in ull tho house. "'JT MY FATHERS HOUSE ARE MAM ROOMS." As you and I expect to enter it and mako thero eternal residence, I thought vou would like to get somo nioro particulars about that many roomed homestead. "In my Fathers house are many rooms." You see the placo i3 to be apportioned off into apartments. Wo shall love all who" arc in heaven, but thero arc some very good people whom wo would not want to livo with in tho same room. They may bo better than wo are, but they are of a divergent temperament. .Wo would like to meet with them on the golden streets on.: worshipwit'. them in the temple and walk with them on the river banks, but I am glad to say that we shall livo in different apartments. "In my Father's houso are many rooms." You sea heaveu will be so large that if one want an entiro room to himself or herself, it can bo afford ed. An ingenious statistician, taking tho statement made, in Revelation, twenty-first chapter, that tho heaven ly Jerusalem was measured and found to be twelve thousand furlongs and that tho length and -height and breadth of it are oaual. says that would make heaven in size 018 sextillion 988 quintillion cubic feet, and then rescrv- ng a certain poruon. ior mo iw u. leaven and tuo streets, anu esi.imai.uig that tho world may last a hundred thousand years, ho ciphers out that there are over five trillion rooms, eacn rm seventeen feet lonsr. sixteen feet wide, fifteen feet hiffh. But 1 nave no faith in tho accuracy of that calcu- ation. lie makes tho rooms too small. From all I can read, tho rooms will be palatial, and those who have not had enough room in this world will have plenty of room at tho last. The fact is that most people in mis worm aro crowded, and though out on a vast prairio or in a mountain uistnct peo ple may havo more room than they want, in mosi cases n is uuuso uuui close to house, and tho streets are crowded and tho cradlo is crowded by other cradles, and the graves crowded in tho cemetery by other graves, and ono of tho richest luxuries of many peoplo in get ting out of this world will be tho gaining of unhindered and uncramp ed room. And I should not wonder if instead of tho room that the statis tician iphcred outasonly 17 feet by 16, it should bo larger than any of tho im- Twrial rooms at Berlin, bu James or Better than all we ever read about him or tulkcd about him or sang about him in nil tho churches and through ell our earthly lifetime, will it be, just for one second to see him. Tho most rapturous idea v. ever had of him o sacramental days or at the height of some great revival or under tho uplifted baton of an oratorio aro a bankruptcy of thought compared with tho first flash of his appcaranco in that reception room. At that moment when you confront each other. Christ look ing -upon you and you looking upou Christ, thero will bo an ecstatic thrill and surgingof emotion that beggars all description. ixoitI lbcy need no in troduction. Long ago Christ chose that repentant sinner and that repent ant sinner chosa Christ Mightiest moment of an immortal history tho first kiss of heaven! Jesus and tho soul; Tho soul and Jesus. But now into that reception room pour tho glorified kinsfolk. . Knough of earthly retention to let you know them, but without their wounds or their sicknesses or their troubles. See what heaven has douo for them. So radiant, so gleeful, so transport! ngly lovely. They call you by name. TLey greet you with an ardor proportioned to tho anguish of your parting and tho length of your separation. Father! Mother! There is your child. Sisters 1 Brothers I' Friends! I wish you joy. For years apart, together again in the reception room of tno old Homestead. You see they will know you aro com ing. Thero are so-many immortals filling all the spaces between here and heaven that news like that flies like lightning. They will bo thero in an instant; thouh they wcro in some other world on errand from uod a signal would be thrown that would fetch them. Though you might at first feel dazed and overawed at their supernal splendor, all that feeling will bo gone at their first touch of heavenly salutation and we will say: '0 my lost boy," "O mv lost compan ion," "O my lost friend, aro we here together?" What scenes have been witnessed in that . reception room of the old homestead I Thero met Joseph and Jacob, finding it a brighter room than anything they saw in Pharaoh's palace; David and tho littlo child for whom ho onco fasted and wept; Mary and Lazarus after tho heartbreak of Bethany ; Timothy and grandmother Lois; Lsabella Graham and her sailor son, Alfred and George Cookman, the mystery of the sea at last made mani fest; Luther and Magdalene, the daughter he bemoaned ; John Howard and tho prisoners whom he gospelized ; and multitudes without number who, onco so weary and so sad, parted on earth but gloriously met in heaven. Among all the rooms of that house there is no ono that moro enraptures my soul than that reception room. "In my Father's houso aro many rooms.' WE ARE OP THE ROYAL FA3ULY. Another room in our Father's houso is tho throno room. Wo belong to the roval family. - Tho blood or King Jesus flows in our veins, so we havo a right to enter the throno room. It is no easy thing on earth to get through even tho outsido door of a king s resi dence. Durincr the Franco-German war one eventide in the summer of 1870. I stood studying the exquisite sculpturing of the gate of tho Tuiler ies, Paris. Lost in admiration of the wonderful art of that gato I knew not that I was exciting suspicion. Lower ing my eyes to the crowds of people I foundimyself beingclosely inspected by governmental officials, "who from my complexion judged mo to bo a Ger man, and that for somo belligerent purpose I might bo examining the gates of tho palace. My explanations in very poor French did not satisfy them and they followed mo long dis tances until 1 reached my hotel, and were not satisfied until from my land lord they found that I was only an in offensive American. Tho gates of earthly palaces are carefully guarded, and. if so. how much more severely the throne room. A dazzling place is it for mirrors and all costly art. No one who ever saw tho throne room of the first and only Napoleon will eve f orrret the letter N embroidered in pur plo and gold on the upholstery of chair and window, tho letter N gilded on the Avail, tho letter N chased on the chalices, the letter N flamincr from the ecilintr. What a conflagration of brilliance the throno room of Charles Immanuel of Sardinia, of Ferdinand of Spain, of Elizabeth of England, of Boniface of Italy. But tho throne room of our Father's house hath a srlorv eclipsing all tlto throne rooms that ever saw scepter wave or crown glitter or foreign ambassador bow, for our Father's tnrono is a throne of crrace. a throne of mercy, a throno of holiness, a throne of justice, a throno of universal dominion. We need not stand shivering and cowering before it, for our Father says we may yet one day come up and sit on it beside him. "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne." You see we are princes anu princesses. Per bans now we move about mcoarnito. as Peter the Great in tho garb of a ship carpenter at Amsterdam or as Queen Tirzah in tho dress of a peasant wo man seeking the prophet for her child's cure: lut it will bo found out after awhilo who Ave aro when we get into tho . throne room. Aye I we need not wait' until then. . We may by prayer and soug and spiri tual uplifting this moment enter tho throne room. Q king, live for ever! We touch the forgiving scep- f or- find prostrate ourselves at thv ieet The crowns of the royal families of this- world aro tossed about trom gen eration to generation and from fam ily to family. There aro children four years old in Berlin who have seen tno crown on tnree emperors, liui wacr string or cvokea oy toucu n ivory j key, but if not that, then something j better, lhero are so many unnsuan harpists and Christian composers and Christian organists and Cliristian choristers ana Christian hymnolo gists that have gone up from earth, there must bo for them some place of especial delectation. Shall we liavo music in this world of discords and no music in the land of complete har mony! I cannot give you tho notes of tho first bar of tho new song that is sung in heaven, I cannot imagine either tho solo or the doxology. Uut heaven means music, and can meau nothing else. Occasionally that music has escaped the gate. Dr. Fuller dy ing at Beaufort, ti. C, said: "Do you not hear?" "Hear what?" exclaimed tho bystanders. "Tho music 1 Lift mo up! Open tho window!" In that music room of our Father's house, you will some day meet the old Cliris tian masters. Mozart and Handel an 1 Mendelssohn and Beethoven and Dod- dridro. whose sacred poetry was as remarkable as his sacred prose, and James Montgomery and William Cowoer. at last trot rid of his spiritual melancholy, and Bishop Heber, who sane of "Greenland's icy mountains and India's coral strand ;" and Dr. Raffles, who wrote of "Hie:h in yonder realms of lirht." and Isaac Watts, who went to visit Sir Thomas Abney and wife for a week but proved mm self so agreeable a gcst that they made him stay thirty-six years; and side by side. Augustus Ton- lady, who lias got over his .dislike for Methodists, and Charles Wesley freed from his dislike for Calvinists; and Georgo W. Bethune, as sweet as 1 A a song maKcr as lie was greai as a preacher and tho author of "The Vil lage Hymns;" and many who wrote in verse or song, in church or by eventide cradle, and many who were passionate ly fond of music but could mako none themselves. Tho poorest singer there more than any earthly prima to ma, and the poorest players there more thaii any earthly Gottschalk. Oh that music room, the headquarters of cadence and rhythm, symphony and chant, psalm and antiphon! May wo bo thero somo hour when Haydn sits at the keys of one of his own or atorios, and David tho psalmist fin gers tho harp, and Miriam of tho Red sea banks claps the cymbals, and Ga briel puts his lips to the trumpet and tho four-and-twenty soldiers chant, and Lind aud Parepa- render match less duet in tho music room of tho old heavenly homestead. "In my Fa ther's houso aro many rooms." ROOMS FOR THE FAMILY. Another room in our Father's house will be tho family room. It may cor respond somewhat with the family room on earth. At morning and even ing, you know, that is tho place we now meet. Though every member of tho household havo a separate room, in the family room they all gather, and joys and sorrows ana experiences of all styles are there rehearsed. Sacred room in all our dwellings! "Whether it be luxurious with otto mans and divans and books in Rus sian lids standing in mahogany case, or there be only a few plain chairs and a cradle. So the family room on high will bo the placo w hero the kins folk assemble and talk over tho fam ily experiences of earth, the weddings, tho births, the burials, tno lestal days of Christmas and Thanksgiving re union. Will the children departed l-emain children there? Will the asred remain ased there? Oh, no everything is perfect there. The child will go ahead to glori fied maturity and tho aged will go back to glorified maturity. The rising sun of tho one will riso to me ridian and tho descending sun of tho other will return to meridian. How ever much we lovo our children on earth wo would consider it a domestic disaster if they stayed children and so wo rejoice at their growth here. And when we meet in the family room of our Father's house, we will be glad that they have grandly and gloriously matured; while our parents who were aged and infirm here, wo shall be glad to find restored to the most ague and vigorous immortality there. If forty or forty-five or fifty years bo tho anox of physical and mental life on rfni-fh fhpn t.hn lipava-nlv childhood will advance to that and tho heavenly old ago will retreat to that. When we loin tbem m mat lamiiy room we shall have much to tell them. "We shall want to know of them right away such things as these: Did you seo us in tnis or tliat or tno otner struggle? Did you know when we lost our property and sympathize with us? Did you know we naa tnat awrui sickness? Were you hovering any where around when wo plunged into that memorable accident? Did you know of our backsliding? Did you know of that moral victory? Were vou pleased . when we started for heaven? Did you celebrate tho hour of our conversion? And then, whether thev know it or not we will tell them all. But they will have more to tell us than we to tell them, len years on earth may be very eventful, but what must bo the bioe-raphy of ten years m Heaven? xney win nave to tell us tho story of coro nations, story of news from all immensity, story of conquerors and hierarchs, ttory of wrecked or ran somed pliSnets, story of angelic victory nr coj-clcsios. Hot would it do for my fcermon to Leave you in that family room today ? 1 am sure there u no room xa wuicn you would rather stay than in tho en raptured ctrclo oi your ascended ana glorified kinsfolk. We might visit other rooms in our Father' house. There may bo picture galleries pencil ed not with earthly art but by some process unknown m tliia world, pre serving for tlie next world the bright est and most stupendous scenes of hu man history. . And there may bo lines and forma of earthly beauty preserved for heavenly inspection in something whiter anJ chaster and richer than Venetian sculpture ever wrought Rooms beside rooms. Rooms over rooms. Large rooms. Majestic rooms, opalescent rooms, amethystine room. "In my .Father's houso are many rooms. I hopo none of ua will bo disappoint ed about getting there. Thero is a room for us if we will go and take it, but in jrder to reach it it is absolutely neces sary that wo take tho right way, and Christ is tho way; and wo must enter at the right door, and Christ is tho door; and we must start in time, and the only hour you are sure of is tho hour the clock now strikes and the only second tho one your wath i now tiffc'nT 'T Virld in tn hand a roll of letters inviting you all to make that your homo forever.

A restaurant which you find cheap, or moderately cheap, ono day, be comes dear tho day after; or perhaps is cheap in the morning and dear in the evening. Tlie law of supply and demand; so precious to tho political economist and often so odious in act ual life, explains this variability. If there aro lew customers they may; havo their cutlet aud wine at reason able rates. If thero aro many, they must pay for the charm of each other s society; and fpr the competition. Every restaurant keeper inside the railings of the Champs de Mars has sworn au oath to retire next Novem ber with a fortune. There is no pros pect that any ono of them will bo for sworn. But timo and tho whirligig Frenchman have their revenges. Itin erant venders of eatables and drink ables prowl outside tho railings and sell to tho thrifty Parisian inside, who lunches or dines in this penurious manner on the grass; tho restaurant man gnashing his teeih as ho beholds tho sad spectacle.

St John and other Bible writers talk so much about the music of heaven that there must be music there, perhaps not such as on earth was thrummed from trembling over diabolic revolts, of extinguished suns, of obliterated constellations, f new galaxies kindled and swung, of stranded comets, of worlds on fire, and story of Jehovah's majestic reign. If in that family room of our Father's house we have so much to tell them of what we have passed through since we parted, how much moro thrilling and arousing that which they have to tell us of what they havo passed through since we parted. Surely that family room will oe one of the most favored rooms in , all our Father's house. What long lingering there, for wo shall never, again be in a hurry.
