A resolution has been prepared by a
prominent Southern Congressman de
claring that the Confederate war debt
shall never bo recognised or assumed by
the United States, and that the national
credit must be ever kept uuimpeached.
This would be stealing away material
which the radicals thought of using in
the next presidential election. They
thought of using—and have heretofore
used it—theory of paying the rebel debt
against the democrcts, notwithstanding
every southern state already has consti
tutional prohibition against paying any
rebel debt, the same provision being also
contained in the amendments to the
federal constitution. They must now
cry all the more earnestly that the
"common schools are in danger."
Babcock, Grant's private secretary and
boaom friend, and general director of the
western Whiskey ring was handsomely
fixed as respects lucrative positions. The
Terre Haute Express enumerates as fol
Gen. Babcock is moderately well off in
offices. He is Major of Engineers, regu
lar army ; Military Secretary to Presi
dent Grant, Commissioner of Public
Buildings and grounds, President of the
Columbia Lyingvin Asylum, Engineer
in-Chief of the Washington Aqueduct,
and Architect of the new State and War
Detriment buildings. His engagement
as confidential Washington agent of the
St. Lonis Whiskey King has ended.
The President's message has the old
theme of religion and politics dished
up—a subject upon which every Centre
county—yea every American—school
boy is booked on. President Grant has
called up the subject in order to help his
third-term aspirations, and really cares
as little about our religion, whether it
be defiled or not, as docs an atheist or a
pagan. But when he sticks out that
kind of a sign to invite support for a
third term, he should, to be consistent,
at once issue his proclamation against
the Methodist Episcopal Sabbath-School
Union, up in New England, which is
mixing religion with politics, and is the
first body that has got astride the third
term horse, and nominated Grant. We
suppose that kind of mixing religion
with politics will suit the President.
The aforesaid religious body excells any
thing we know of in stepping out of its
sphere and in down-right impudence.
A Sabbath-School association, to favor a
Sabbath-breaker, horse-racer, nnd dram

The action of this body of professed
Christians, is thus given in a despatch
dated Boston, Dec. , and we give it here
without further comment:

President: "What right has the Presi

So then let all take notice that when
an officer traces rascality right into the
white-house hegeta his walking paper
for his impudence.
The radicals are very uneasy there is
some possibility that the democratic
house of representatives at W aahiugton
will do some investigating this winter,
and that some of the nasty, hidden
things will be unearthed to the gaxe of
honest men. Great wrong- have been
committed, unheard of rascalities hate
been practiced for a long time by the
dominant party, which will create a nasty
smell whan a committee of honest men
raises the lids and opens the abuse- of
men in high places to the public eye.
It is only by a change, such as we now
have in congress that the jobs,thievings,
plunder!ngs and systeinatiaed villanv
that our public servants have been guilty
of. can be exposed. So long as the radi
cal party held both houses of congress,
no investigation of tlagrant abuses was
to be hoped for. The pari)' in power
would not expose itself, but rather
studied to conceal the plunderiugs
carried on. aud white-washed such as
were detected in fraud and plunder.
R,iss Tweed will be distanced in rascali
ty when investigating committees enter
into their work at Washington. Ross
Grant will be found having around him
the worst characters that ever had a
hand in the administration of the gov
ernment, and who found in the white
i house protection and a hiding place.
There will be more Rabrocks exposed,
and the smell of crooked whiskey will
come from the breath of other men in
high places and who w ere deep in the
confidence of the President. Black Fri

Here is a characteristic little incident
of President C rant's career: When he
was General of the Army, immediately
aAer the war, he visited Canada. At
that time Lord Monck was Governor
General, with his residence at Spencer
Wood, some three miles distant from
Quebec. It was announced to Genera)
Grant, at his hotel in Qaebec, that the
Governor General would call upon him
at a certain hour next day. Lord Monck
desired to observe the usual ceremony,
and therefore, at the appointed hour,
sent two aides-decamp in advance to
announce his approach. A few minutes
later he entered Grant's room, preceded
by two other officers, himself clad in full
uniform. At this moment Grant was
seated in earnest conversation with a
horse-dealer of fume in Quebec. The
horse-dealer was entertaining him with
a disquisition on the off-hind fetlock of
a favorite mare. As the Governor Gen
eral approached and saluted him, Grant,
just lifting his eyelids, but not rising,
put out his right hand and said, "Hoy
dy do?" And then he went on talking
about the mare.
It is plain to be seen, says the Pittsburg
Post, by a cursory perusal of the Radical
journals that hope has gone out of the
Radical bosom with the assembling of
Congress. For months the Radical lead
ers have been bespattering the Demo
cratic members of Congress, especially
those who were mentioned in connec
tion with the Speakership with mud and
trying to create the impression that an
nnrestrainable intestine war was raging
in the Democratic ranks. The wish was
father to the thought. The Radical ras
cals who have keen plundering the
country for years, hoped to see a con
test in the Democratic ranks that would
afford them an opportunity to escape
exposure and punishment. In thiithey
have been sadly mistaken. However
much the Democratic nicudicrs may
liave differed as[to their choice for Speak
er, there was and there is no dissensions
in the ranks of the party. Anindcjamd
ent difference of opinion is essential to
the purity of any party, but it is not to
be construed into factious dissensions.
The Democrats in Congress are of hut
one mind as to the necessity of purify-,
ingthe Administration of the govern
ment, and dishonest officials in the
White House and out of the White
House, had as well begin to prepare for
the worst, for exposure and punishment
are inevitable. Their attempts to create
dissensions in the ranks of reform are
worse than useless.

many of the children had only one gar

It would be a great blessing if this could

Nothing seems to me more certain than
that a full, healthy and permanent reac
tion cannot take place in favor of the in
dustries and financial welfare of the coun-
try until we return to a measure of valur
recognized throughout the civilized
world. While we use a currency not
equivalent to this standard, specie. b r ~
comes a commodity like the products of the

er there is a demand for it. Under our

diating them. They would bring nofbing
after debts were all settled. There are a
few measures which seem to me important
in thia connection, and which I commend
to your earnest consideration. A repeal of
of go fnjifh of the legal lander acta a
make these aojfa receivable for debta con*
traded after a dale to bo iaed oft ( e act
iuelf, ray not later than the Ist of January, 1
187". We should then have quotation at
real value, not ficticious ones. Gold would
no longer be 8t a premium but the curren
cy at a discount. 4 hfilthy re-action'
would set in si once, and with it a
I to make the currency equal to what it put-'
porta hi be. The marchanta, manufactur
es and tradesman of evary calling, could
do business on a fair margin of profit, the'
money received having an unvarying *al-,
uo. Laborcri and all clate* who work 1
for stipulated pay or salary, would receive
more than their income, because eitra'
profits would no longer be charged by the
capitalists .to compensate tor the risk of |
a downward fluctuating in tho value of
the currency. Second, That the Secreta-i
of tho Treasury he authorized to redeem, |.
say not to exceed f2,0(0,000 monthly
of legal tender notes by issuing
in their stand long bonds, bearing inteiest
nt the rte of 3 23-100 per cent, per annum,
of denominations ranging frwm fifty to one
thousand dollars each. This would in
time reduce the legal lender notes to a
volume that could be kept afloat without
demanding redemption in largo sums sud
denly. Third, That additional power be
given to the Secretary of the Treasury to
accumulate gold for the final redemption
of the cuirency, increasing the revenue,
and curtailing the expenses, or both. It is
preferable to do both, and I recommend
that a reduction of expenditures bo made
wherever it can he done without impairing
(j jvernment obligations or crippling the
due eaecutior) thereof Olio measure for
increasing the rovaooe, tpd ftp only one,
I think, is of the restoration of the duty fli
tea and ccflae. These duties would add
probably $ 18,000,000 to Iho present amount
received for imports, and would in no way
increase the prices paid for these articles
by the consumers, These articles are the
products oi countries ijlf.cting revenue
from exports, and as we, the largasi uu„-i
turners, reduce tho duties they proportion
ally increase them. With this addition to
the revenue, many duties now collected
and which give but an insignificant return
for the cost of collection might be remitted
and to the direct advantage of cotuumurs
nt home. I would mention those articles
which enter into manufactures of all
sorts, all duty paid upon such articles go
directly to tho cost cf tho article, when
manufactured heie, and must be paid for
by consume,y. 'J'lie duties not only come
from the consumers at
protection to foreign manufacturers ofpu,
same completed articles in our own
distant markets. I will suggest, or men
tion, another subject hearing upon the
problem of how to enable the Secretary of
the Treasury to accumulate balances. It
i< to de . ise some l-otter method of verify
ing claims against the (ioverrmiunl than at '
present exists, through the court offlalnir, |
especially, those claims growing out of the i
late war Nothing is mora certain than
that a large percentage of the k amounts
passed and paid, are pait or wholly fraud- <
ulent, <>r are far in excess of the real losses
austalnod. The laige amount of losses,
proven on good testimony according to
the existing Inwt hy nttldavits of fictitious
or unscrupulous peraons, to have been sus
tained on small farms and plantations, are
not only far beyond the possible yield of
those places for any one year, but as every
-uie knows who has experience, and who
has visited the scenes of those spoliations
are in many instances more than the in
dividual claimants were ever woith, in
cluding their personal and real estate.
The report of the Attorney General,

of awards made and ef claims pending ol

decrease was iu lands dis|H>sed <<f under the
homestead and timber rultu'o laws. The
decrease of this is supposed to he found in
, the grasshopper scourge and the droughts,
which prevailed so extensively in some of
the frontier Stales and Territories during
that time, so as to discourage and Jeter en
tries hy actual settlers. The cash receipts
. were less by $600,322 23 than during the

ssys they turn her out now for five year* |
absence front the ordinancesoflberhurch,i
'to which no one member or officer asked '
i her during all that time to return except
Mr. Beecher, and that was lest her going
to another church might have an injurious

caused, she says, by her of
Mr. Beecher's guilt from his own confes-j

'absence was well known to him, hit visits'
•o her husband anil her for advice and aid .
•lo pis were frequent and'
full of anguish and copjrilioc on hi* part.
It was for hi* sake that she refrained from

"For other f'iindalion can no man lay
than that is laid, which Is Jesus Christ. !
Now if any man build upon this founda
tion gold, silver, piecious stones, wood,
hay. stubble - every man's work shall be
made manifest, for the day shall declare it
because it shall be revealed by fire; and
the fire shall try every man's work of
what sort (t is.* ft any man's work shall be
burned he shall suffer lost ; but b himself

Tt< * I HuW THK WOHk SMALL HK Tnian.;
Christ the only foundation
L Generally Christ is the foundati >n of;
tbe whole Church. As the God-man. He;
purchased salvation for the Church mid.
His spirit appropriates it to the member
ship, Hence Jetus Himself said .- Upon this
rock 1 will build my Church, and ihegalet
of Hell shall not prevail against it Of
this foundation the Lord God himself saiJ,
Is. 2H.16: tit-hold 1 lay In Zion for a founda
tion a spine a tried stone, a precious cor
ner stone, a sure foundation, he that be
lieveth shall not make haste. See I I'eL
2. Particularly, Christ it the foundation
of all true doctrine, by which the tinner
individually it lead to Chrsl and obtains
justification, aanctification and eternal life
Christ himself is the truth, upon him thr
whole superstructure of tnuud doctrine
rests, via Knowledge, repentance, faith,
fustificaiton, resurrection, etc.
Ist The manner of building upon this
foundation 11 is doctrine of salvation in
Christ aloar. act* 412 It is not only im
portant l<> have a good foundation, but al-j
so to build well upon it with good materi
a). A bouse*w ith the best kind of a foun
dation may be ruined by working into it
bad material, into the JF-or, or into the,
| roof, etc fio a character w all founded
may be almost ruined by working In t-ad
material. A little of the luvt of the flesh,
a little of the lust of the eyes, or a little of
the pride ot life. Notice Ist. The good
material—gold, silver, precious atones,
. leptesenting true, pure, useful and prec
ious doctrine and good practices, good
knowledge a good heart and a good life.
2 The bad manorial—the wood, bay and
stubble, representing not heresy, but error
and tradition, vain, unprofitable and
worthless doctrines, e g, the mode of
Baptism, the mo le of Christ's presence in
the eucharist, lteplisinal regeneration,
distinctive sanctifieation—in short almost
all controverted points The di>cussiotis
| n those topics are largely wood, hay and
tiw the work shall bo tried, via :
1. lis the fire of the Holy Ghost, the
: Holy Ghost by the lloty scriptures 2
The fire of temptation and persecution.
This is fire that will prove teachers, doc
trines and characters very effectually.
Two observations aro in point here. Ii
Jt is a probatory fire that is meant, it is the
re of the judgment of Jesus Christ to
prove men's character* that is intendod.
! 1 It i| not a puigatery fire that is meant
in the text, in which men wi I be purified,
from sin efter death. For both the works
that shall be burnt and pass away and
those tha| shall remain and be rewarded.!
• hall ba tried It mui then bp some other
fire, and we believe it it the fire of the Ho
ly Ghost. Paul speaks of it in th# text, i
It is a fire to prove what is truth and what
! error, what is good character and what;
is bad—what are good practices and what
1. The judgment of Jc#u Christ is a
great solemnity. Ar# yog, reader, ready
For your iwai.
2. The result* of the judgment will be
1 Ifn man's work abide, he rha'l re
ceive a reward—a gracious reward in pro
portion to tbe fruitfulness and usefulness
'of his doctrine, preaching, work, etc, in
lha chujch on earth.
* If n man's work shall be bussed, be
•hall suffer loss. Ifit do not stand the fire
or test be shall suffer lose. His work and
happiness in the future would not be what
they weuld have been bed be not been an]
jerrorisL It is no small matter, therefore,'
to Vc ar. errurist. His. capacity will be
I full, but his capacity is not vhat it would
lievc been bad he not been an errorist.
This matter may be illustrated by meas
ures of different capacity —sonic holding a
pir.t and on up to a firkin or barrel, all
be full but some hold a great deal
more than others. fi>o of the degrees at
.happiness in the future world, one will
Ihavo biore capariiy than tho other and

more, no doubt, than many an ignorant
;and uncultivated and undeveloped indi
vidual, no matter hew pious, ho may have
j boeu —and for the sol* reason that their is
more capacity An errorist will feel the ef
fect of his mistake through all eternity.
Hence the question is important : What it
