Tiarsliy. December 6. 1377 Republican Opinions of the ProtldenVa Judging from the remarks of our ex changes and the general tone of Washing ton correspondence, there is a great diversity of opinion among (Republicans as to the merits of the lato presidential message. Those who look favorably upon the President' Southern policy are, ao far, well pleased and do not hesitate to express their approbation in decided terms, but some of this diss are not so well disposed towards the financial ideas of the document The anti-Administration class who see in the Presidents plain and direct reiteration of bis Southern policy a disposition to stand by the policy which he has entered upon instead of receding and bringing himself more in accord with the strong radical element, are accordingly left in the sulks, iiiey teel their situation all the more keenly because during the last few days of the extra session they had been led by what was said and done in the Senate, and from the vaoillating coarse of the supposed special friends of the President that he was weakening, or in other words, that rather than depend upon the Democrats for the Success of measures and appointments he would neoessarily have to oompromise his previous positions and yield something for the sake of Republican senatorial support, The President's views of finance oanhard ly be said to be distinctively Republican or Democratic, as the policy which he enunciates will find more or less support ers as well as opponents in each party 1 he President s views are mnoh surer of endorsement and support in the East than in the West, so far as regards the money question. It seems probable now that the really exciting questions of the regular session will be the repeal of the resumption act and some form of silver bill. Civil service quarrels between the Pres. dent and the republicans may possibly be in the main got over or avoided through com promise and personal concessions, and so great is the diversity of opinion on tariff that it will bardly assume in any event the characteristics of a purely party measure, and is not likely to be taken up and debated to any extent until some action is taken upon the repeal Pill. Altogether, therefore, though Mr. Conk ling and thoso of bis ilk have won a vic tory over the president in the last hours of the extra session, thorough misman agement of the president's friend? and blunders on his part in the bungling way he adopted to reach desirable reforms, and his vasodilating course in regard to execu ting his orders for civil service, still it may be expected he will gain wisdom by expe rience, and that he will for the future avoid some of the more palpable mistakes of the past, and in making less haste make greater progress. But in any event we do not see how he will be able to regain the full confidence of the party which brought him into power, nor how he can with any preat success make lor himself a third party of any strength or permanency. unconsciously recognize their ultimate destiny as an Asiatio and not European power in the fact that the burial place of Constantinople is at Scutari on the Asiatic side ot the uoaphprus. me speaker then commented at considerable length upon the great irruptions and conquests by races of the north upon those of the south and the prophecies in Scripture thought by many to point to some retribu tion impending over the followers ot the false prophet, the hereditary foes of Christendom. .He gave his views of the eastern question, a review of the rise and growth and decline of the Ottoman Dower. and dwelt upon the religious element of tha eastern question, In this connection he said: - i HELICAL.

Late intelligence from the seat of war in Europe seems to indicate tbe lurks are meeting with partial success after a long period of reverses, nevertheless, the gen eral results ut tbe last tew months opera tions would appear to foreshadow the final result, and indicate that Turkey, unaided. will ultimately be compelled to succumb to her more powerful adversary. The soldiery of tbe Turkish armies have fully sustained the heroic qualities of their ancestors, and have exhibited as much valor and endurance upon the battle field as their enemies have ever shown, but their numbers are becoming gradually killed ana wastca away, ana their reserves are no where to be found in number sufficient to rcplaco the waste. The contest has therefore become, like many another war, a case where tbe longest purse and the heaviest battalions win the day. Th sympathy of the civilized nations of Europe and America has been largely with the Russians during the present war, more we are inclined to believe on account of traditional distrust and dislike of the Ottoman race, than from any well grounded belktf in the!superior justice or righteous ness of the Russian cause. The historical interest which lor many centuries buB attached to the city of Constantinople, the story of its capture by the .Ottoman Turks, and the varying incidents of war which haye playodj a conspicuous part in European affairs and which haye centered in or around this renowed capital of ancient and modern times, will warrant us in pre Bcntiug to our readers an extended ey nopsia of "thejstruggle between Christian "ity and Mohammedanism," or "the reli "gious aspects of the Eastern Question", taken from a discourse of John Cotton Smith, and which1, is by far the best ex hi bit of the contending forces and the in tensity of the struggle that has lately fallen under our observation. n l i . , . ne ayr, a mow 01 ao auujeci wmcn U more fraught with significance a to the future of Christianity; 1 know of none in regard to which, in view of the interests of Caristiamty, it is more important that there ahould be a thoroughly intelligent sentiment throughout the Christian world, These art my reasons for bringing the consideration of this subject before you at this time and in this place. More than seven hundred years ago a Greek writer, 1 . .'II - .- wnosa wonts are sua extant, spoke ot a prophecy which was already ancient in his time, that in the last days the Russians should be masters of Constantinople. On tbe tomb ot the . Great Constantino, the founder oi Constantinople, is an insenp tion to the effect that "tbe yellow-haired race shall overthrow Ismael " These facts are but indications of a deep-seated anticl ration on the part of the Russians and the 'P t - .

The Czar is theCteaar ol the east because he claims the succession of the eastern Roman Empire, and Turks TBI CHRISTIAN AND THE MUSSULMAN. Whatever there is of evil in Mohamme danism is a thousandfold intensified in the Turkish manifestation of it It is Turkish Mohammedanism which is the peril and curse ot Christendom to-day. it we would understand rightly the nature and the influence of Mohammedanism we must have a right estimate of the Koran and of the system by which the Koran is authon tatively, interpreted. The Koran is an aoeount of the alleged visions of the pro phet, with many precepts or a mora! character, it is singularly barren in an intellectual point of view, having scarcely anything in it of science, imagination or philosophy. It is intensely monotheistic, and its whole creed may be summed up in the single affirmation:- 'There is one God and Mohammed is his prophet" In order to enable the faithful rightly to under stand the Koran there are four oommenta riea or systems of explanation. These are tbe systems of the four orthodox Imaums who immediately sucoeeded Mohammed The first of these was Molekibu- Anas, who was born in the year 713. His work was simply that of a compilation of the sayings of the prophet, illustrating the revelation which he had (riven in the Koran. The second was Abou-Hanifo, born in 699, (lis system was one . of logical deduction from tbe sayings of ' Mohammed. The third was born in 767. II is system is an eoleotio one tor he made use of the sys terns of each of his predecessors, only inclining to that of Moles, Ihe fourth was Aninedibo-Uanoal, who was Dora in 780. He systematized the vast body ot traditions in regard to Mohammed and the Koran, and reduced them to logical form dome students ot oriental lite and character have thought that there is one feature at least of Mohammedanism which is worthy of admiration, and that is its calm, unquestioning trust in the providence of God. But a very slight examination will serve to show how different the feeling of the Mussulman is from what we under stand by reliance npon the providence of God, and how little it is entitled to our re speet. The fundamental principle in Mohammedanism is that of the absolute impossibiliry of knowing anything about God independently of the Koran and the traditions which accompany and interpret it All exercise of-reason in regard to God is at the very outset eliminated from the 8VBtm, and the Mussulman becomes a mere machine io reference to the whole subject of religion. It is not strange, therefore, (that the religious observances even ot the most devout Mussulman are wholly external in their character and have scarcely anything truly moral or spiritual in them. It is to be remembered that tbe whole system of Mohammedanism is ooe of the most sensual imaginable, and that the sincerity of Mohammed himself is very gravely coji promised by tbe excessive sensual indulgences which he claimed by divine revelation for himself. Besides this, it is a fundamental principle in Is lamism that all unbelievers are to be the slaves of the faithful or exterminated by them. Tbe relations which Mohammed anism would establish between the fohow ers of the false prophet and others is clear ly indicated in this saying of the prophet: "It God valued this world as the wing of a fly, He would not allow an unbeliever so much as a drink of water from it Whatever can be logically deduced from a saving of the prophet is to be received as di vine revelation. 1 here is then in the Ivoran a verse to this effect: "God has created the whole earth for you." The "you" re fers to true believers, and the whole earth is therefore designed by God for their use and benefit. The ilonifite jurists deduce the legitimacy of slavery. piracy and perpetual warfare with tbe unbelieving world." It is a Mussulman precept that no faith is to be kept and that no treaties or obligations are to be re carded as binding when made with un believers. Uoe of their maxims is that the death of a prince is not so much to be regretted as the loss of a province. There is another maxim which was quoted as conclusive when the Sultan Bajazet killed bis brother. Disquiet is worse than put ting to death. Uoe of the fundamental principles of Mohammedanism, intensified in tbe Ottoman form of it, is tbe absolute servile subjection of women and tbe sub version ot the family life by the institution of polygamy.
