THE VERMONT PHGENX, AND RECORD AND FARMER, FRIDAY, MAY tfO, 1884.
A POLITICAL BKIIMON. By Invitation of tho pastor, Ilev. 8. II, Leo, tue members of l'ost Sedgwick, U. A. It., accompanied by Tyler Damp, 8, of V., nnd the ladles' relief corps, attonded morning service at the Congregational church last Sun day, In a body, Mr; Lee's sermon was of a two-fold character, having rcforcuco both to the soldiers' memorial day and to the day of prayer appointed by the Women's Christian Temperance Union. Ills text was taken In Komans xiu, 1 1 "The powers that be are or. dslned of God." Those words of Taul, he mid, aro but the statement of a self-evident net, bit It Is one which men are not apt to rosllro except In tlmos of dlstross and peril. Among the audience present, he remarked, thero aro probably not less than 100 gold watches, and not ono dirk, pistol, or other weapon of defence. Thero Is n feeling of safety throughout the community, Wbnn two parties disagree, they appeal to a third prly the lsV whioh Is presumod at least to establish equity between them. To whatever branch of tho ohurch wo belong, we worship God in freedom. All those things aro possi ble because of the existenoe of tho state, whose office, it Is to afford protection. Hu man government had Its origin in that feeling of righteousness which oxists deep down la every human heart, and honoe Is of God. Wo talk about the farmer producing wheat ; but all that bo really does Is to prepare tho ground and sow the seed ; so do oarthly rulors some times think that they direct the affairs of government ; but a higher ruler Is ever watch ing and over-ruling for his own ends. Should one visit Washington and watch .the dally pro ceedings of thoso whom wo have delegated to niako and execute our laws for us, he would hardly suspoct that God rules. The thought which dominates all others, and which con trols the action of our legislators upon overy subject brought before them Is not, What is right ? or, What does lln country need ? hut, Who is to bo tho next President ? or, How will my action upon this or that measure af fect most for the good of my party and the defeat of my opponents ? And so, weeks of Idleness or party manwuvrlng drag into months, and no action Is takon upon ques tions of tho greatest publlo moment. And vet, whose is the fault? Our Congressmen are in roality men above the average of their constituents in learning and ability. Ninety, nine out of 100 of tbem arc selected from the upper fifth of society. They aro In Washing ton because the people have cent him there; and they aro responsible to tho people for their acts. As showing how governnit-uts arise from n popular necoity, tho preacher fetched the early history of our owu couu. try and Paul' J Idea of the neoeiwity of a civ il government, as expressed in the text. Is the nioro forcible because uttered during tbu reign of ono of Homo's worst tyrants Nero. A second lesson to bo gained from tho text was that civil government belongs to God, in the sense that it was instituted to aid in estab lishing his church upon the earth, or, In oth er words, to maintain that order of things un der which the church could best extend its power and Influence. So, also, the ohuroh strengthens tho eta to by giving it a oonsounoe Man receives his stewardship from God ; hence he is bound to do righteousuess. "Hlghteousness oxalteth a nation" It affects tho quality of Its population and favors tho accumulation of wealth and tho Increase of intelligence and national power. Tho preacher then referred to what ho re garded as the two chief perils which now threaten our nation. The first Is the usurpa tion of power and its degroJation to personal and selfish ends by thoso In authority. Ab Balom was pictured as the typical usurper, and as he by his deceitful words and kisses stolo tho hearts of the pooplo of Israel, so does tho modern ofQco-seeker, by his hand shaking and affected friendship, seek the same selfish end. That we have an army of 100,000 offlce-holders.among whom $100,000. (100 are annually distributed, and whoso places others are anxious to fill, is a fact fraught with great peril. It is perfectly right that a man should aspiVo to occupy a position of public trust and responsibility for which ho feels that ho is especially qualified, and to be called to such au office is honorable ; but where tho covoted position is obtained by bargain and Intrigue, thrusting asido all con siderations of publlo welfare and personal re spect, where is the honor? Tho second peril alluded to U that of in temperance. No power is so dominant or so dangorous to our pnblio welfare as the rum power. Its statistics are appalling. In their annual cost, tho educational interests of the country represent but one-tenth that of the liquor interest, and the religious interests but another tenth. Intoxicating liquors cost the country $000,000,000 annually, and yield a revenuo of $90,000,000. An interest so vast must needs have a potent Influence upon leg islation. Accordingly wo sej the opposition awakened in Congress by the measure long ago introduced providing for the appoint ment of a commission to investlgato the methods and results of tho liquor traffic. The American bog has bad his commission ap pointed, and been vindicated. We have bad a silver commission, a grasshopper commis sion, and so forth ; but this measure of vast ly greater moment is refused, and Congress stands at the beck of the wickedest power that stalks to-day. It was evident to tho preacher that neither political party would take tho lead in temperance roform ; but, for one, ho would never cast bis vote for a candi date who would oppose temperance legisla tion. In concluding he remarked : we know the history or ltome and the other nations of antiquity, how they roso, flourished and fell through their own vioes and corruption. Is that the inevitable conrso of empire ? Must it be always so 7 The service, which was opened by the sing. In K of the doxology, was appropriately closed by the congregation rising and singing, ".My country 'tis of thoo," followed by the bene diction. Tlit IV, O. X. U.

Sometime In the afternoon a Frenchman named re let Augey, a young man of about 33 years, who had lately been married and who wanted to 'treat' tho crowd, came to him with a pint bottlo, which be de manded to hnre Ailed with whiskey. Sampson rcfua- u uuuif, uui Augey aepi imporiuuing blm and finally threatened hlra, and to get rid of him Sampson left tbe room and went to thn ! W tin ft nf the hoiisf, where his wife was. Angey followed blm, uowpver,auu Mampson at length went out of doors, hoping thus to avoid tbe crowd and keep tbe peace. Aa he went out bla wife handed him a pistol with which to defend himself if necessary. Angey and his fellow attll punned him, and be heard one of them say to Augey: 'Bralu him with your bottle If he don't giro you tbe rum I" Upon thla Angey struck at blm, hitting him slightly on tbo shoulder. Sampson, who waa standing on or near tbo step of his hotel, then drew his pistol in self-defence aud flrcd down ward, bitting Angey In tho leg. This, as wo havo said, Is substantially tbo story a told by Sampson. The Frenchman, ou his part, aaya that two or three times on Sunday, beginning In the morning, ho bad sent to Sampson for liquor and had got It, and bad drank hlmeelf and bad treated bis fel lows. When he sent In tho afternoon for more liquor, Hampsou rerosed to let tbo person by whom ho sent havo It, and he then went himself. IT says he was partially drunk, and admits that abusive language was used and that he waatrjlng to force bis way into the hotel, past Sampson, when the latter flrcd. Immedi ately after the shooting Bampnon telegraphed for 8.N. til-nit, air. jicrnci, ii)ou uis arrnai, ueciueu cot to make any arrests; but tbe feeling against Sampson was BO Stronc that be took him Iinmn vllh him nr1 kept him over night and until hta wife came for him and took him home. The affair, as we have said, has created much ex citement. Tbe feeling Is strong, and much of It is against Sampson not so much because it Is thought he went beyond bounds In shooting tho Frenchman, as from a belief that be has been selling liquor freely to men who ought not to have It. No arrests have been made at this writing, but it Is understood that Sampson will bo arrested to-day or to-morrow and will bare a hearing at llrattleboro DroLnblv unon a charge of llqnor-aetllng. its. notion ami uouiana, who were sent tor to at tend Angey, report his wound aa doing well and say ho will bo out in a few days.
