The- New York Tribune says:
• In lOoking forward to the next
Presidential campaign we can, draw
hope from a source that has never
failed in every political contest since
1862, and that is the absurd folly of
the \Democratie party—a folly rattier
of the heart than the brain, for there
are wise men among the Democratic
leaders, 'who see the bad policy of
mining in the old muddy, disloyal
rata, and would be glad to get - their
forces upon \ new and higher ground,
but the masses of the party will not
be led thus to iictory_and constantly
force their leaders with folly and
ruin, like the herd\Lef swine at the
precipice. The Democratic party is
still a rebel party at heart, and the
poison of treason evaporates front it
very slowly—much too slowly to dis
appear in the next two _ years. For
example, if a secret ballot could be
taken to-day in Ohio among the
Demaxrats for an eipression of opin
ion as to who is the greatest states
man in the country, nine-tenths of
the votes lionld be for Vallandighant,
beyond a doubt. A good illustratio
is afforded by the experience of the
Hon. Mr. Beck, a fair, patriotic, Dent
ocratie member of the House from
Kentucky, who, when' he returned
home last summer, found his constit-
uenta enraged bemiiise they had heard
that he had dined with Speaker
Blaine, and had gone on an excur
,sion with a l party that included Gen.
Butler andlother ipromiisent Repub
licans; and ho was compelled to apol
ogize for having acted with gentle
manly courtesy toward his political
opponents. The Democratic
is much worse thin its leaders, and
will continue to refuse to be led with
any liberal or progressive vie — it's. This
fact is an element of universal strength
to us.
The chief danger to the Republi
can party is in the difference of °pia
ion prevailing on financial questions,
and especially on the tariff. If the
Democratic party dared to declare
openly fur free trade, it might possi
bly secure enough jecrnits from &-
publicans demoralized by the reve
nue reform sophistries ; to sweep the
West, and thus seem to have a chance'
of electing the next President; Nan
dare not take the , hnzard, with the
certainty of losing - Pennsylvania,
which it regards as essential to suc
cess. Pennsylvania may be called
the political key• of the situation. It
prevents any division of party lines
on the tariff question. There is not
likely to be any rupture in the Re
publican party about the tariff. The
extremists on. both sides will see that
it is impossible to carry oat their
views, and there will be a Union on
moderate ground, to which all will
assent as the only reasonable policy.
In answer to the question, Who
will be the Republican candidate for
President in 1872? there is thus far
but one reply, and that is,General
Grant. It is agreed that h has lost
in popular strength within a year,
and some even - insist that his admin.
istAtiou can be plausibly charged
with grave errors; but there's thought
to be no man who can command so
much popular strength, and he has
yet time to correct mistakes, and to
see the necessity for consulting the
harmony - of his party, and - thus free
ing it-from any danger of disintogra;
tion. The nomination of Grant
looked upon as inevitable by perhaps
a majority of the &Publicans in Con
gress, and there-would be no anxiety
about the result of the election if he
would use his influence to. heal 'the
fends already existing, and to pro
vent the occurrence of any new ones.
Especially ought the Missouri split
to be allowed to go no further.
. A gentleman who probablyrepre 7
scuts as well as any one the golden
mean of opinion among the Republi Congress, when asked recent
ly about" the future policy of the Re
publican party, its duties and respon
sibilities, said he thought it world
find its career in continuing and com
pleting the work of social; financial,
and commercial reconstruction, in
bring,ing the country back to a nor
mal peace condition in respect to
currency, prices, trade, commerce;
.t ransportation, general indiistry and
social life: keeping no other fruits of
the war beside the new moral ideas
gained in the struggle. .The wrath
of the war Should be put away, the
word rebel wiped out and forgotten,
and a complete act of amnesty pass
ed. Something should be done, too,

There is, th ore, plenty of work
for the 'Republican party to do. There
is, too, a tolerable degree of harmony
of opinion among its representatives
in Congress*, as to its future policy,
and no disposition to accept its dis.
integration u 'inevitable because it

Saturday morning last, at 5' o'clock,
Rey. -Dr. 'Win. Wisner exchanged
mortality for a never-ending , life, at
the residence of his son, Judge Wik
ner, at Cedar Rapids, lowa.
Over ninety Sears ago this pici
neer of our, Christian religion was
born. He was a promising yontti,
and *hen he arrived at the pro
age he chose the profession of
and in due time was admitted to t3te
bar. He was a careful student aid
a successful practitioner. His knoift) , .
ledge of law and gentlemanly bear
ing won for him an enviable position
in society, and his prospect for a high'
position in the legal and political cir
cles were very I)attering indeed. He
had not pursued his -forensic career
many years, howelver, before God
sent His blessed Spirit to awaken in
the noble, young na..4.0 an interest in
the welfare of his soul. He was con-
verted, and the: . Holy Spirit said to
him, "Go preach my Gotipsl!" At
such a bidding many young men with
Such bright prospects before them to
becosne - great in the eyes of the world,
and the possessors of wealth and high
social position within their grasp,
would . b.ave grieved away God's Holy
Spirit. Not so with Mr. Wisner. He
turned , his back upon perishable
thing's, and answered to the sum
mons of his Master. In the year
1816 he took charge of the First Prot
byterbm Chirch in this village, with
but a• membership of twelve souls.

citizens were lawless and averse td
any religious movement in those early
days, he labored on fearlessly in the
face of great opposition and persecu
tion, till several hundred _souls were
added to the church.
It was said of. John Knox on one
occasion, that, prior
Idlers enteted
. prior to is entering
the pulpit, sey
416 ,/h
the church with low ed Muskets, de
signing to take the life of" that noble
divme as soon as he made his ap
pearance. He was not to be fright
ened, however, and went into the sa
cied desk with no fear 'but that ,of
God before his eyes. His sermon
was BO\ werfnl that the wo \ uld-be
' wept and found g use
for thei rhands in wiping away eir.
tears. • \ ,
Dr. Wisner oncei preached a -
mon under similar eircumsterice.s. A
villain was piowling around the
church with pistol in hand, waiting
for an opportune Moment to rob him
of his life. Though the man of God
was aware of his enenly's movements,
he preached load and long, and the
Savior whom he loved aint faithfully
served fought his battle and his,
\\ l
foes were put to flight. •
The church soon became small
to hold its members. Other tingl
es were organized—the Mettidiiit
church on Aurora - street first. \ln
1830, the Dutch church was formed
of 30 members from the Presbyterian\
society. It can readily be seen what
a vast amount of •good has been done
by pnc. good man, when we contem
plate the power and influence of our
churches at the present day in this
vicinity, all of which owe their origin
to him 'who se recently has been ta
ken home to be with his Mutter. In '
the year 1831 he accepted a call, to
the Brick church in Rochester, corn-
Juenced his labors there on the 23d
day of July, same year, and continu
ed them till Oct. 14, 1835. Over 700
• souls were added unto .the church
during the four years. From Roch-_
ester he - removed 'to St. Louis. There
he and his family encountered much
sickness, and in the year 1838 'they
left for Ithaca, Their only daughter
died at Pittsburg, on their way .to
this place. , He has buried six chil
dren. Only two sons survive him:
Rev. Wm. C. Wisner, D.D., of Lock
port, and Judge Samuel. P. Wisner,
of Cedar Rapids, lowa. -
Dr. Wisner was a member corpo
rate of thg American Board-, of For
eign Missions, and generally attend
ed its ineetin a irs. His is the sixth
death within the past - three months.
Rev. Albert Barnes was also a mem
ber of the Board.
With the exception of a short time
'spent at -Athens, Pa., and the two
other places mentioned, Dr. Wisner
has been engaged as an active minis
ter in Ithaca alone. Nearly his whole
pastoral and ministerial efforts have
been bestowed npon this people.
Well may they mourn his demise.
He was an excellent 'preacher, and
his daily life was an example of pie
ty. All who know him could but ex
claim—" He was.a good man." ,
When the intelligence of his death
was, made known to our church, there
was universal mourning. Thechurch
.was draped in heavy mourning; and
on Sabbath last a brief 'tribute was
paid to. the deceased by Rev. Dr.
.‘Vhite, our present pastor.
The corpse arrived here thismorn
ing andwas 7 conveyed to the session
house, where his friends were allow,
ed to view-his remains. • -
His coffin was beautiful,. of rose
wood, embellished with heavy silver' '
trimmings, and elaborately trimmed '
within with white satin. A large'
white lily lay across. his , right arm,
and on the coffin-lid' was a beautiful
cross woven of geranium leaves, and
set with nice fresh , forget-me-nots.
Also a wreath of geranium, beautified.

'This declaration may be found in
Bev. ix : 10. The Whole verse reads,
"And I fell at his' feet to worship

de it not; I am the'fallcm servant,
and of , thy brethren that have the
testimony of
.Jesus, Worship God
Or the testimony ofJesns is the spir
it ofprophecy." From - the Urhest
period, .mankind , have been called
upon to " worship God." Adam no
doubt understood the history of Cre
ation as given by Moses, that " God
created the heaven and, the earth,.
and was the proper object of wor
ship, and as the custom was in the
Liter generations, communicated it
to his sons, and from them handed
down tofuture generations.
i In the great length of life given to
tb those before the flood, we see the
Wisdom of God displayed; fir 'order
that they might orally communicate
to a number of generations, ',so that
Adam was enabled to converse with
Idethusaleh, and he with Noah, who
was preserved in the ark—a fathertto
future generations. Early indeed we
are' informed, Cain and Abel Irought
"offerings to the Lord," and soon
It began men to caU upon the name
of the LOrd."
But . soon the wickedness of men
was great upon the earth, and God
instructed .Noah to build an. ark for
the Lliiition of himself 'and faMily,
for He declared he woulddestaby all
flesh upon the earth. Passing down
the stream of time, we soon mid' of
the nations becoming idolaters,
except the Jewish, and that
they were constantly reminded
4 ` That there is a God." "I am the
i,ord thy God, which brought thee
Ont of the land of Egypt, from the
house of bondage. Thou shalt have
none other gods before me. Then
Shalt not make thee any graven ima
ges, or any likeneps of anything that
m in heaven above, or that is' m the
earth beneath, or that is in the wa
ters beneath the earth : thoti shalt
notter down thyself unto them nor
serve them."
Passing down,to the days of the
Apostles, we, , . read _that when Peter
'was coming into the house, Corne
lius mat him, and fell down at his
feet and 'worshipped . him. But Pe
* took him up, sant:lg.." Stand up;

The circunistance of Paul and-Bar

There would be no tight living if
girls could he made to understand
this simple fact—that men dread the
thought of marrying a woman who is
subject to fits - of irritable temper,. to
bid headache, and other ailments we
need-not mention, all of which every
body knowf, are the direct and inev-
itableprOduct of the
.compresion of -
the waist. - Men like tO see a. small
waist, certainly, but there, is a very
great.- difference betWeeie, the waist
which is well-formed and in proper'- -
tion Co the rest'of the ,figure, and'n
waist which is obviously and artifi
cially- compressed, to the destruction
of that graceful c:tirriage which is 01113
of the chief charms of a woman's ap
pearance.' Anunnaturally compress
ed waist is far iniore certain of detec
tion than a mass of false hair; or a -
faint dusting of violet powder. !The
rawest youth who enters a ball-room
can, pick out they vomen who Vivo
straightened themselves artificially,
and - there is no more ready handle
for his hare:de:3s jokes. If the young
lady who, to obtain the _appearance
'of a dragon-fly, has been subjecting
herself to considerable physical pain,
and who has been laying up for her
self a pretty store of ailments, which
only want time to, pronounce them:
selves, could only see the stare of
scarcely-disguised contempt, anitim
derstand the . 'scornful pity, which -
greet- the' results of her labor, 'we
should have a ,change of~ fashion--
and it is merely a fashion. There is
nothina..intrinsically, beautiful' in an
unnaturally small waist, and if it
.were the faiihion to go into the oppo
site extreme, woman would see beau.,
ty in padded_ waists. It is a great
misfortune that popular taste never
alters- in this as it alters in 'other
matters. Observers may notice with
what' regular ebb and flow wide
skirts and. narrow alternate, how
we have the pig-top garments
of men followed =by the sailor's
wide-ankled 'attire ;, how
, square
pointed boas give place to peak
toed boots, and how the peak toes go
out again for the square points.
Through all changes Women remain
true to only one fashion. Whether_
her clothing is as long and lank as
that of It Grecian virgin, br whether
she builds the ewer half of
'her figure a rotund and capacious
structure Of steel; she is forever faith
ful to the tradition of a small' waist;
and' she will weaken her circulations
al's will make herhands red, sho will
incur headache, she will , crack lie,
Telco she will rain her digestion, ntl
tb .p roduce a malformation which
Wise men regard with pity arid - fools
,with derision.
