"CHRISTIANITY IN RUINS.” 'With Some Remarks on tho Church of tho Future. A Paper by Father Hyaointhe. From the Independent. Christiana and Frenchman, lot mo efck yon what moment you would oloot to perpetuate and to ronew our quarrels ? Is it that moment when, amid a revolution without parallel, social order and tho, religious, Christianity and France ap pear to sink beneath our foot ? Christianity is in mins, and why ? Because we have refused it tho only demonstration which could have established it firmly in men’s belief and in men’s hearts—the demonstration . by works. Christianity came into tho world well nigh 2,000 years ago, not In the guise of a now idea, to be consigned to tho pages of books and to bo discussed in the schools; but as a now fact, which purported to havo power to ronew all things, beginning with man’s soul and ending with earth and Heaven. Indeed, it announced nothing leas than now heavens and a now earth, wherein righteousness should dwell. (11. Fetor, iii. 18.) But alas I wo have discovered the moans of making tho Dlvluo promises fatso. Have wo not uphold, against tho Gospel, tho .Old Man, and with, him tho entire old creation ? Are tho heavens loss firmly shut, loss leaden, than over? Is tho earth loss barren dr loss defiled? Finally, is it peopled now by tbo' saints, and aro wo, perchance, that race which is bom not of blood, nori’of tho will of tho flesh, but of God? (John, i., 13.) Tho Pharisaism of the Jews, tho idolatry of tho Gen tiles. all tho errors and all tbo sins of tho an cient world havo reappeared in Christ's Church, under forms all tho more hateful inasmuch as they aro the corruption of sublimo truth and morality. .Tho Kingdom of God has failed of be ing established here below; wo still worship at Jerusalem and on Qorlzim—not in simplicity and in oneness of heart; tbo family has not in its sanctified affections copied Christ's love for tbo Church or tho Church's submission to Christ; tho reconciliation between rich and poor has not boon brought about by tho recognition of that, equality which tbo Apostle preached (11. Oor., viii., 18,14) ; prayer has not consecrated labor, nor has gladness raised men's hearts. After traversing tbo globe or tho whole course of his tory, the shrewd and impartial observer puts hlmsflf tbo question: In what respect is tho flvilizatiou which is called Christian superior to that, which goes by another same? In .short, Christianity was intond >d to bo a life, and wo bavo made it an ab tiraetbn, sotting over against tho systems of a oriticiem which destroys or impairs, but cannot robulH, other systems of an orthodoxy which lillrm without* being able to convince and Dftentfcnoß without ceasing to doubt. And jet tbo problems which lie at tho founda tion of society aro in our days ait forth with a R reclaim and a force as never before. Plainly, ao soolil question is Just now one of life and death. In vain will you try to put it down with force orto avoid it by stratogom. It baa to bo solved, md for Christians tbo solution of all difficulties in Christ— ns ono of our ancient ancestor! said: Omnisdifllculatissolatia Chnsiua cst. Thii generation, which will listen only to facts, we must meet with tho demonstrations of Christian positivism. "Bo men gather grapes of thorns orllgoof thistles ?" says tho Master. “By their frubs ye shall know them.” (Matt, vii., 10.) But to this end wo must put a stop to our inter nal dissocsions. No doubt it is important for a church tint its theology, disclpliuo, and liturgy should ho raodo as perfect as possible. No mau recognize* this truth moro fully than myself. But yet these thlngsarobut moans,not cuds; and those edifices, which coat so much labor, have, after all, no vahe, except in tho use that is made of \i\to thorn. Ttoy are lilio tho lamp which ie care fully trimmed for tho sake of tho light which it will foster ami disperse abroad. But whoro is tho nee of our lamp if wo beep over trimming, but never light it, or if wo lock it up iu our schools and m our churches—l bad almost said in our vestries f Lot us, thou, go out into tho open air; lot us miuglo with tho crowd which bustles and jostles along iu tho darkness j lot us rhed upon their toils tuid Bufferings tho light of that practical faith which holds the promises of tho present as well as of the future life, and whereof Joans did not hosltato to aillrm that it would perform the same works ho performed, aud even creator still. (John, xlv., 12.) 1 will nob conclude without speaking of Franco. This, it is true, is to opon tho burden of all our woes; but it is at tho same time to appeal to all our bopos, to every sense of duty. Bo not fear, however, lost I.should talk poli tics. This is uot, as 1 woll know, tho fitting place, far less is this tho biting time; for. when our task is to discover tho euro of our ills, wo must sook tho causes of thorn clscwhoro besides in defeats and in tho governments which have boon imposed upon us. Our disasters date back further than tho war—further than the Empire, And as for our present discords—tho suro pledges of greater catastrophe still, if they con tinue—their concernment is with .something yory different from either tho Republic or tho monarchy. Thoro is in Spanish America a re public answering bettor to tho aspirations of certain dofondora of throne and. altar than any monarchy in Europe; and, in like man ner. of all tho objects pursued by mod erate and practical Republicans. I know not ono which might nob bo. secured under tho rule of a liberal monarchy. * No, tho repub lic and tho monarchy aro insufficient to account for so torriblo, so profound an antagonism. What divides us is not political nor evon social ques tions; wo aro divided by questions of religion. There have risen amongst us two contradictory conceptions of things, which aro at tho bottom dogmatic conceptions; two religions, distinct from ono another, which havo each an oqual tendency to engraft themselves upon tho laws, on tho govornmont, on education, on tho whole country, m order to bring about tbo reign either of Athe ism or of Theocracy. Franco is thus reduced to pitiablo straits, having on tho one hand & mo rality independent of religion! and on tho other a roligion independent of morality; hero tho nega tion of tho true Qod, thoro tho assertion of a false deity. 1 must speak out tho whole truth, for such is the supremo duty of the hour, and i will uttor it without. rancor; for, amid all tho griofa that I endure, I fool no emotion of hato for any man. There is not in my heart ono drop of gall for any ono whatever. But I speak the truth when I say that we are dying between two blasphemies; one affirming and the other denying; on tho ono side an idol, on tho other nononity I All idols aro not graven iu wood and stone. Some are built up of words in man’s imagina tions. Such an idol is tbo falsely called Qod of Fanaticism and Superstition, who rogrots that blood no longer flows in honor of him ; who blossos tho lies daily employed iu his service; who is tbo chief hindrance to tho progress of science, of liberty, and of morality; a strange deity, who can bo announced only after the Bible ie shut and Christ bidden away, and the reason and conscience of generations systemat ically tampered with in the very cradle 1 Oh 1 if the atheism of our day wore simply to con demn this Idol, it wore like tho atheism charged on the early Christians; at least, It would imply an impassioned appeal to tho unknown God, and I should recognize in its shadows the morn ing dawn of a grand religious renewal. But what do wo boo in point of fact? Tho true God involved in ono common reprobation with lying deities; nay, whatsoever Is in any way divine in man and in nature made tho ob ject of an implacable hate; and, os though we wore at the prelude of tho Anal revolt, man setting-himself above whatsoever is worshiped and sitting in the temple of God. (II Thoss., ii, 4.) Bo I misrepresent ibis irreligious de mocracy, which would arrogate to itself tho right of educating our people? Bo wo not daily And, oven in its comparatively moderate organs, tho utter nogatiou not alone of Catholi cism (which is not to be charged with tho abuses introduced in its name), but of Cliris tianity In general? Bat why speak of Chris tianity, since they deliver their attacks directly and purposely upon tbo very principle of Mono theism. This idea of God, which.constitutes tbo exceptional nobility of tbo races that have re ceived It—tbo Monotboistio idea, tho Idea of a • God who is Ono, Personal, Liv ing—this they would represent as a lapse of : reason, a kind .of metal dis ease or intellectual leprosy inherited from tbo sows. It was our 111 fortune, then, that, after Bhinlng forth and becoming obHonrod Again at the cradle of tho human race, it was discovered anew one day on tho banks of the Euphrates, in tho miraculous faith of a descendant of Shorn, who became, ho alone, tho Father of ail who believe, of whatever race they may bo. Ic was our undoing, forsooth, that again, in tho majes ty of tho wilderness, it was revealed iu a higher form to that shepherd whom it constituted tho moral and religious lawgiver of his people and ol ftU humanity. “And Jehovah said to Moses, lam that 1 am. Thou shalt say to tho ohildron of' Israel, I Am hath cent mo unto you.’ 1 Sublime definition, to bo repeated In overy zona of space and of timo, in all philosophies, as in ftU churohos. hr aU jiUuda that think, and fry all hearts that worship.- This It Ifl that men now laugh at; this they visit with outrage; this thoy would now. under pretense of making progress, take away from Fiance. If such a movomout wore to bo successful, if there wore no cure for religious fanaticism save In the fanaticism of impiety, then Franco would bd without hope. Or, rather, thou God, to savo iis whilst taking vengeance, would sona amongst us not viators now, but conquer ors ; and, if Europe wore too corrupt to yield conquerors, God would require them of the barbarians. 14 Ami it shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall hisq for the lly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the boo that is in the • land of Assyria. And they shall come, and shall rest all of them In tho desolate valley, and in the holes of tho rooks, and upon all thorns,and upon all bushes. 1 ’ (Is., vli., 18, 10). No, France must bo saved by tho French Whether Protestants or Catholics, wo are first of all Christians; and lot us unite to preach to our follow citizens that God of whom wo may all say alike: 11 Ho is my father’s God, oud ■ I will exalt him.” (Exod., xv., 2). Lot us erect as his first attar the hearthstone's of our homos. At that altar, at. least, wo can all pray together. Lot us restore that misunderstood priesthood without which other priesthoods will bo over powerless—tho priesthood of tho hus band and father. I said four years .ago,, at Notre Dame, and I repeat how: Our country will ho regenerated .whoa each father .of a.family under stands that upon himself devolves tho moral and religious government of his house, and that, if ho would exorcise this authority worthily and efficiently, ho must himself believe and practise the lessons ho has to teach., With tho family, all society will bocomo Christian. Tho fundamental law is tho law of labor, and for tho immense majority manual' labor—ln tho country, agriculture; in workshops and factories, Industrial employment; in shops and • stores, business. Well, when tho namo of God resounds through tho haunts of men not la blasphemy auy more, but in bonodic tiou i ' when tho interest that engages tho hearts and sots in motion tho arms of. men shall no longer bo that of selfishness, lust, or bate,. but that of tho Christian family, then tho organ*' Ization of labor and tbo ponoo of tbo world shall bo accomplished. Tho workman will thou call to mind Him who, for thirty years, worked in that shop at Nazareth ; ho will call to mind tho groat Paul, who, la his toil as a tradesman, found tho moans of maintaining his freedom as au apostle ; and, as ho looks on his hands, hard ened with work, and sees his children happy around him, ho, tbo, may enjoy those words at onco of humility and self-reliance: “I have coveted no man’s silver or gold, or apparel. Yea. yo yourselves know that those hands have ministered Unto my necessities and to them that wore with mo.” (Acts, xx., 33, 04.) Then will tho laws bo no longer implements of war, but instruments of justice ; they will no longer come down out of tbo rogion of storms to' arousb fresh tempests on tho troubled sea of human lifo. Authority will then command by respecting itself and by respecting others, and - freedom will oboywith dignity. Hierarchy will, nrovairovory whpro| and oppression shall uowboro ’ bo seen. No, I cannot bollovo that wo shall thus go on presenting so painful a spectacle to God and to ’ history ; goodness existing ouly in tho individu al, ana appearing Hko a drop of wator, and evil in organized - ■shape - like an occan. ‘ Bib baa no place omongst tho laws of our nature, nor will its reign bo everlasting hero below. . There is on Calvary so astounding a redemption, and there will thonco sooner or later flow down a grace so mighty as will lift up all things, both individual souls and nations of men ; aud tho human race, which commenced with Adorn in Eden, will end with Christ in tho ‘ Millennium. This I boliovo with all my soul I Tho early Christians fell only into apparent error as to tho time, and also, perhaps,, as to tho. form; but in tho main they judged aright. The future will see tho final triumph of truth and justice, tho organization of a perfect church aud of a perfect society, and will in tho Kingdom of God and of His Christ witness the fulfillment of tho prayer which wo utter hero to-night: “ May tho whole earth bo filled with His gloryl Amen! Amen! Amen!”. ABUT AD MAJOB£S.

Behoving implicitly that the bending of little human twigs should be accomplished during tbo early stages of their growth, 1 concluded to com mence on Ylovo. My intention was to give her a lesson in firmness. Accordingly I filled a box with chestnuts, and placed it within her reach, saying, “Now, Viovo, dear, you must not touch them without my permission. “ Well, don, I doss I’ll not," was the reply, while the brown-eyed three-year-old gazed wist fully toward the sweet temptation, j gave her six or eight. “In my door ’ittlopotlt, fauk ’oo I” . X wont to my work, and labored with all the cheerfulness of an inventor *who is pretty sure his machine is a success. During the afternoon it occurred to my mind that those eight nuts wore lasting a rotnarkablo time. Assuming my blandest tone for the occa sion, I asked— “ Viove, have yon eaten oil your chestnuts ?” “No, I fink not.” “Como hero, darling. Where do you got so many ?" “ 6b, I dots ’em out o’ my potlt.” “Well, but here are more than I gave you at first,”l said, as I examined the dainty recep tacle. “ 0 Viove I have you been disobeying mp, aud getting more out of tho box?" “ I’spoofs p’r’ops I have.” * ‘ But are you auro ?" “Yes, I’b pitty sure." “0, dear Viove," I cried, with the feelings of one who discovers his invention to bo a fail ure, “this makes poor mamma feel so sad. I do not like to punish you, but what must I do ? I must have my little girl to obey mo. Oh I what shall I do?" Tho small sinner looked reflective. “ Well, mamma," she presently sold, In sol emn tones, “ I doss ’oo had bettor pray." Believing her suggestion a wise ono, embody ing about all-the wisdom of the entire affair, 1 acted upon it. Boturning to my occupation af ter our 'session bad adjourned, tho first thing that caught my attention was a scrap of old newspaper, containing this sentence: “ lie who through intention or neglect throws before another a temptation, is, if ho bo,over come, equally guilty."

Views of tlio Hoard of Trade TUoroon* To the Editor of 7'he Chicago Tribune: Bib : There seems to bo a misunderstanding as to tho wishes of tho Board of Trade regarding changes In that portion of tho Warehouse and Bailroad law that relates to tho inspection of grain. May I ask space in your columns to otato what I understand to he tho views of tho mem bers of the Board ? It could hardly bo oxpootod that thoro would bo unity of thought and fooling in a body comprised of nearly 1,100 members. All are, however, agreed upon tho necessity. of a repeal or ebango in tho present law,—a foot you may well understand when informed that, under the law, tho Inspector is obliged to classify grain and give it such grades'as, in many cases, pre vent tho owner or his agent from selling it for its value, or at a price that buyers would gladly pay for tho property if thoy could obtain It in tho condition in which it arrives hero. Nearly 1 all (1 know of no exception) think it was an lUnwar r&ntod act to tako from tho owners or their agents their natural right to arrange and classify their property, and lu such manner as thoy de sire, for tho purposo of selling and realiz ing tho most for it. Thoy do not believe tho State has any moral right to establish a compulsory inspection of any kind of property that docs, not belong to, or that is not bought by, tho State, and much of which docs not belong to tho citizens , t of tho State. And they insist that tho people ofc lowa, Wiscon sin, Nebraska, and Minnesota, who wish’to ship grain to this market, should have tho privilege, not only to elect to whom thoy will consign this grain, but also to whom they will 'delegate tho power to inspect or classify It. Thoy say, as did tho National Board of Trade at its session in St. Louis in 1671, that “AH State inspection is tm necessary and oppressive to the mercantile inter ests of the Slate." * Milwaukee on tho ono hand, St. Louis on tho other, and Toledo between us and tho seaboard, have each tho control of their own inspection, and can chango their rules and grades so as to Influence to their markets grain that socks ours, and would como here if our grades wore satisfac tory. Wo conduct the inspection of flour, pork, and provisions; and why not that of grain ? Although tho Constitution requires tho Legis lature to enact laws for tho Inspection of grain, we believe it was not tho Intent of tho framers of tho Constitution that tho State should as sume the business of and appropriate tho foes for inspection. Holding these views, it la. not strange that some of tho members of tho Board of Trade should think the association ought to ask for tho repeal of the law, —a law which, oil admit, does, in its practical workings, provo damaging to tho farmer and tho country buyer, and detrimental to tho interests of tho. chief city of the State. The majority of tho members, however, do not think it would bo poli cy for tho Board of Trado to ask to couducb tho inspection of grain, and thoy seek only amend ments in tho law, that will overcome certain of its defects and imperfections. These include not only tho members of tho Board of Directors, but tho majority of the members of tho associa tion, and embrace those who receive from tho farmer and tho country buyer, as well as those who buy for tho Eastern dealer, tho grain that is marketed in Chicago. Thoy realize tho difficulty of satisfying all parties in inspection; and thoy know that, however justly an inspector may dis-, charge his duties, thoro will bo charges of in compotoncy and of fraud ; and, if tho State con trols tho business, those charges cannot bo urged against our association,—tho Stato must boar tho blame and censure. Tho business has boon, and always will bo, a source of anxiety and annoy ance, and, if tho State will relievo tho Board' of tho responsibility and of tho odium inseparable from the business, the association will bo only too glad of tho relief. These members, however, feel that thoy ought to insist that tho inspection should bo properly performed, and in such a manner that it will not force farmers and country dealers to scok another market for their produce. In order to enable parties having grain for sale in this market to obtain its full value, tho exist ing law must bo changed so as to allow new grades of grain to bo established whenever tho trade demands a quality of grain not provided for by tho present statute. The Board of Bail road and warehouse Commissioners should bo empowered to mako those changes iu grades when tho interest of tho farmer and country shipper demand them. Tho Board of Commis sioners should also have authority, and bo re quired, to appoint a Committee of Appeals to de cide upon matters of dispute arisiogbotwoon tho Inspector and owner or agents of owner of stioh property; the Committee to havo tho power to reverse the decision of tho Inspector, and to change the inspection if the grain ill incorrectly graded. Tho protection of tlio Inspoctoragainst unjust charges and claims, as well as the rights of the owner or consignoo of property, require that there should bo such Committee of Ap fioala. With those modifications in tho law, the nspoction of grain in Chicago ought to bo mado satisfactory to all, and will bo if the Committee and the Inspectors appointed are mon of experi ence iu tho business, and are of well-known ability and integrity. 0.
