13 TtELIOION A FABCE?
Iligh Comody and Low Morals.
Much hhi bem mlJ concerning the moral

avrfrnad that It conld tie converted Into perfect
gchoolefmoni!ftjr; and that in all IU niatilfests
tkio iontroction mltrut be mingled with arnuo
meut. Vithoot paulng to eonilder how far the
fetiftHtj of people nro willing to goto whool
where liilii-rto tliej hare gone merely for plea
inrc, or whither tragedy and comedy would tako
bettrr with a moral tehorlously pinned in the
ibapc ofoi'ilopuu to each, It is xufcto urguctliat
the cotiMiiunity can with benefit dispense with
that Slj'c of stagc-sermun which has prevailed at
the Walnut h treet Theatre for the last few Sunday
At thin place a person calling himself "Key. S.
M. Landis, M. D.," llttS for the Iat four weeks,
been pirar.hlng a cric of sermoni entitled "The
Bock upon wlr;ch the Church Split." Tliero is
no occasion for any one nut knowing who tliii
jxrraon if. Hi advertisements tntu all th:tt ho
deems necessary. There can bo no doubt about
kia being a popular and gifted orator, for they
state emphatically that he in. From the same
sooreo we are to'd thut his sermons are "great,"
and united for "Thinking 1'eople," Tho fciitnros
which are peculiar to the entertainment are that
the admlfislon is Ave ccntH, "to pay expenses,"
of course that under no circumstances is change
given cd that the public Is Invited to go erly,
to aroid the crowd at tho door.
The risltor who fhall go to the Walnut street
Tbeaire any Sabbath evening, will see the foot
lights chining ; a drawing room scene set ; on the
centre of the stugo.a small table, on which are
placed a Ulblu, a bymn book, a tumbler, and a
pitcher of water; the proscenium boxes empty,
the orchestra vacant, the rest of the house from
pariruette to dome crowdod to excess, ar.d upon
the ttage the "popular and gifted orator," who
is to deliver one of his "great" sermons. lie will
discover a crowd lounging around the steps of
the aanettmry, a crowd in tho lobbies, crowd
op the stairways even unto the third tier, and a
crowd In that third tier itself. These are the
Thinking rcople," comedo hoar tho "popular
and gifted orator" deliver one of bis " great"
The scries of sermons which the "popular and
pitted" has chosen to deliver, is entitled "Tho
Rock upon which the Church Kpllt." The
"great" sermon, In this series, last night, was
spun "Beauty," and the week pravioui upon tho
"Sunday City Car Question." It would be un
kind, perhaps, to the "popular and gitted," to
chargo him with logical inconsistency. If we
apprehend him aright, however, one of the rocks
npon which the Church split, was tho Sunday
City Car Question, and another was Beauty. We
have not had the advantage of hearing all the
"great" sermons of the ' popular and gifted,"
but wo havo heard these two. After having
heard them, we can, of course, no longer doubt
that two of the rocks on which the Church split,
are Beauty and tho Sunday City Car Question.
For, to produce conviction, tho "popular and
gifted" does not apply vulgar reasoning. IIo
employs the higher principles of faith, and takes
It for grunted that tho public will take it for
granted that Beauty and the Sunday City Car
(locution are two of the rocks ou which the
His consideration of the Sunday City Car Ques
tion was marked by the preponderance of one idea,
and that vrus thut there are such things as blind
gaides, who strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.
Indeed, there were some blind guiles, said the
"popular and gifted," who strained ut a guut and
wallowed fifty camels pretty big camels, too.
This is a ronnd and musical sentence. It winds
op a paragraph well, and the "popular and gifted"
made use of it we are afraid to say how many
times much as "Mrs. Toodles'' reminded "Mr.
Toodles," after her auction experiences in wheel
barrows, watcbboxei, ard brass door-handles!
" how hundy It will be to have them in the house."
The audience may therefore be excused from con
necting the two passages, and tho galleries, which
always appreciate humor, may be pardoned for
nggesting the connection between tho text as
repeated by tho "popular and gifted," and the
one which is already known to the newspaper
reading world ai "lie played on a harp of a thou
sand strings, spirits of just men niaJe perfect."
In his quotations, aUo, tut "gifted and popular"
was not less huppy. The fact that they were
presented to "Thinking I'eople" explains tho
frantic and often renewed ci.r!sof the upper
circles to help him out, when his powers of
memory proved vuin. It was naturally to bo
expected thut the "Thinking 1'eople" should feci
anxious to hear him enunda'o quotations with a
grace, and without the ".-tick" v. Inch Id so killiug
to elicit upon the sta,'e. Tho attention and
earnestness with which his audiences hang upon
his words, were ln.-t night sufficiently tested. For,
the " popnlar and gilted" happening to refer to
the fact of its liein0- a impossible for a rich man
to enter the kingdom of heaven, as for a camel
to pscs throti(rli an eye of a neuile, a lart;e portion
of these present immediately perceived tho rota
tion of the text to that of the previous Sabbath,
and applunded with as Kivat a fnrur as if the
Kitted sud popular had referred to the memorable
words "tiliud guidon who attain at a guut und
wallow a camel."
His f rent sermon last nfclit was upon B jntity.
Ueauty, auid the lecturer, was of two Kinds,
natural and artliiem. Whether the rock ou whicU
the Church split was natural or artificial beauty
was not explained- la the progress of the dis
etnrse much that was true was laid. For In
stance, it was soid that birds were natural, and
lliat Adam and Kto were created physically por
tVct. It was t.tatcd that ir people would attend
to the requirement! of their bodies more, that
they would be bcaitby, and the succeeding gene
ration more beautiful. In addition to these
pleating tacts, the "popular and gifted" favored
ike audience with autobiographic jm,u,gCs, which,
however, are nt worth repeating here. Chris
tianity be declared was mushroom, except the
Cbrintianlty he taught, which would make us all
beautiful, l'articular attention was paid by the
gifted and popnlar to verbal advertisements. In
the sermon on " Bcanty," fir Instance, he stated
that if every one would attend hi lectures,
ixoplo generally would become beautiful,
and In the sermon on the "Sunday City Car
Question " he was confident that a gutta-percha
Invitation of bis would sllenco the noise of the
rare, and become popular. He alluded to Mayor
Henry, who he said had Irled to put him down,
but he wouldn't be put down. He said a beautiful
Mnyorwchad! lie said ,!hat henceforth money
would not be taken nt the door; there would be a
collection taken up before commencing worship.
As many ns ehoi-c to give more than live cents
nil.tbt do co; and tho intimation was nivcn that
small favors would not bo thankfully rccelvod
During the evening a phantom voice kept repeat
ing "You're rltf.t," "Amen,""(ilory hallelujah."
At tho close of tho crformnne'e a prayer was
o di red, in which sinners, with a special reference
for gallery gods, were stipplicnted for. In con
clusion, Uio "gifted and popular" stated ho should
ropcut, by invitation, the sermon of the previous
Sabbath, on the Sunday City Car Quostion this
being ono of the Hocks on which the Church split.
Very, cry far Indeed Is it from our Intention
to attach odium toanything that is truly religious.
If wc had no other motives to guide ns in this
matter, respect for the deep religious tone of tho
community would bo our guide. Hut in such an
instance aa thl, it seems to us, truo religion is
travestied and made a game of. Promiscuous
audit nces arc ammcd.on an evening w hose char
acter should lie holy, with frivolous aud fantastic
spicthcs, devoid of argument and connection.
The religious fensc of society is destroyed.
However much truth, trito though it be, may ba
mixed up iu the discourse, such an air of lindi
nnge and scurrility Is attached to it, that the inllu
ence must bo evil rather than good. The very
criticism! of the audience are witnesses against It.
very excellent company that have been performl
ing with great iclat at the National Circus, tluft
celebrated Nlcolo Troupo will appear this even
ing. These artisti have been performing in New
York fr some time, where they caused a furor
said to be ntipuralleJed in the history of the pro
fession. Yonng Mco'o is said to be the wonder
of I he age, daring, intrepid, and graceful in his
ueritil (lights. Mr. W. Itocbolle, tho grout man
monkey, is a member of the troupe. As an eques
trian of a very peculiar kind he has no rival.
F.r. Ktttou Stone will also appear, mid at tho
nqnest of numerous patrons, Mr, Cotries Sher
wood will reappear in his celebratedcharacter of
"l'cte Jenkins." Mrs. Warner bal. so far, met
with merited success, and this enables her to
renew her etlorts to please the public by adding
moro attractions at the Great Nliiloiial Circus.
She hat the largest company in the world.
New Chfsnvt Suikkt Tiethk. Jessie
Ilroien; Or, The Itclief of Lwkimm, is to be pro
duced this evening. To say this is merely to say
that every resource of tho New Chesnut will be
brought into action. There can be no doubt that
much money has been expended in the produc
tion of this piece. Tho scenery, tho wardrobe,
the music, the mechanical ctfects, tho properties
and accessories, the distribution of characters,
are all of them first-rate, ' In the latter occur the
names of Miss Kflio Germon, Miss Balle Vaughn,
Mrs. Flood, Katie llajtcr, Mr. Frank .Mordaunt,
Mr. W.H. Higglns, JMr. J. T. Ward, r. II. A.
Murdoch, Mr. W. A' Chapman, Mr. H. 1. Sin
clair, anti Mr. J. B. Daily.
I'urttcular pains Lave been taken in the prepa
ration of the lusttcene, the Storming of the He
dun. In this scene one hundred auxiliaries ap
pear at once upon the sta;;c. It docs not require
a vivid iniagiua lon to perceive that this tableau
must be brilliant and cllcctivo In tho extreme.
I'ut it is not onlv in this one scene that wo are to
expect a tiinmpli of st-igo fflcet. The drama of
Jemic llroicn is lull of incidents original in con
ception and of startling dramatic merit.
Jo regard to the nrtinjr of the company, wc feel
certain that Mug V.lWa turmoil will sustain the
favoruble repute she has won by her impersona
tion of l'amrettc. Her good looks, her charming
gestures, her sweetly modulated voice, will not
be lost in the character of "Jessie Brown," in
vested as it is with tmiictr and grace. Mr. Hlg-
iris makes his iirst appearance litre to-night.
Mr. 1 rank Mordaunt is well known and much
thought of; Mr. J. T. Word nearly always docs
his best; Mr. Chapman is too experienced and
f ui ctssiul an actor to be bad in any role; and Mr.
Muidoch is a very youus actor of decided ubility.
In characters such as "Alicia," in June Shore,
and "Hose ludlaud," in JVie Itohher'a Wife, Miss
Vaughn bus proved she can act well in both tho
legitimate and sensational drama. The pi rl'otm
nncc will cncluilc with Uoliert Maeaire, in which
Waller Lennox will appear.
IiiriHS, Deaths, and Marbiaoes. Notwith
standing the war, people are as much bent npon
marriage as in times of peace. This is shown
from the records kept In the Registration OtQic,
but unfortunately the record of marriages and
births does not extend back of 18T1. During a
fortion of 1N00, tho new law was in existence,
ut its provisions were but imperfectly under
stood. Taking the' records from ISM, wo find
that in the ear there wera -HI 7 marriages and
17,v71 ldiths; in lMi'.', the runrriac8 bud increased
slight'y, and reach d loo'J;aud In the sntnc year
the births were 1 1,7 1 1, a deen-uae of li'sjuiuthe
number of births. Hut in lHoii there was an iiu
proveincntover 1m;2, a there v.ere 6171 marriages,
and l.i,'J!4J births. Numerous morriuxes took place
at a distance, in which one or both of the purties
resided in this city, but we have no record in such
cases. Dining the same period the deaths indi
cate an increase, although it should be recollected
that in ltx:2 and the tig ires include the
mortality at the inilitniy hospitals, where citiens
of other Suites and cit.es are e.ircd for. IalH'ii',
the deaths were '. Clo ; in ISoO, ll.AOK; in 18-il,
W.ltlis; in lttii', l.i,n;i7; aud iu IhM, 1.,7HS. If
from Ihe figure in lsjti'1 wo deduct 12(J, the
deaths in the iniiitui v hospitals, tho muruill y
