Talmage on the Emigration from Time to Eternity. Those individuals who went to church with iresbtoed appetite for sensation jostcrday, in the expectation of being treated to sermons in which Mere would he direct discussions or the fate of Paster, were somewhat, although not altogether, disappointed. In a few preliminary remark* before hi* discourse Dr. Walker, one of the reverend gentlemen who attended the condemned man in Pis last momenta, referred to questions which had Peeu naked hun aa to whether he would preach pon that subject. Heaped for the reelings of the Pereavcd family of the deceased, he auid, was alone enough to deter him from that, and he thought the pulpit was not the proper place for such allusions. The words of tlje Rev. Dr. Tyng upon the same subject will be found among the reports given below. Mr. Heecher, in Plymouth church, devoted the greater part of his exhortation to an appeal on the Hide of humanity and against the extreme penalty of the law, taking the ground that If there were less severe punishment crime would Pecome less common. The Kev. Mr. Aston, preaching on "The cause and Cure or Crime," argued in direct opposition to this idea. Mr. Hepworth, on "Cod's and Man's Punishments," spoke with high praise of Governor Dix's firm conduct in IPe late trial of character through which he had passed. The bright Spring weather of yesterday drew wriu uiuiuiuui' iu iiuiuciwc uuuiucra imju an ui llM churches were crowded. 8T. GEORGE'S CHGRCH. Vbt Rev. Dr. Tyng on Foster?Repent? 1 ace Means Salvation?The Reviling* of the World Not To Be Regarded by Christian Souls. Many, no doubt, wbo yesterday attended Dr. ling's church were drawn thither by the idea that kbe reverend gentleman wonld touch npon the abject of Foster, with whose fate he has been so Intimately connected daring the past month or so. this was thi reason why the large chnrch was crowded In..every part, and the name of the executed felon was on everybody's tongue who was there. On ascending the pnlplt Dr. Tyng gave as his text a part of the eighth chapter of the Songs of Solomon, beginning?"I raised thee np under the apnle tree; there tby mother brought thee p." He began by speaking of the mercies which the Almighty vouchsafed to those who cared to follow His ordainments, of the great love and care which was lavished upon His children, and said all bad been done by cod to give each one a share of gnat salvation which was intended fer all. He oaid that he had the fnll hope that THK UNFORTUNATE MAN wbo had been cut off so suddenly during the past week had long before the terrible moment came realized the goodness and mercies of a lovable Bod. He had met his doom with resignation, and entirely in a Christian spirit. Would that all those who died were as well prepared as that reviled, bunted down criminal. Cod had said that be wonld bear the burdens or his children, and this poor wretch had suffered more than gbe children of this world ordinarily suder. What matter the spirit with which the world reviles at the Christian ? He has a fortitude and a hope greater than mortals can upset. Cod alone was his fudge, and what mattered it to him now THE WORLD JUDGED HIM. Jesus was the stay and the strength of all those wbo were denied by this world, and the Saviour, wbo said there was more joy in heaven at tbe saving of one soul that was plucked from the burning than at the alvation or a hundred righteons ones bad taken that poor castaway soul into His booom in that kingdom where the wicked cease (Tom troubling and the weary are at re~t. Repentance and nope for a better life should animate s ail at the last moment. When the reverend gentleman ended a sermon Which waa replete with Christian beauty the effect was deep and soul-felt on the congregation. The living Illustration was so apt and so well put as go be extremely impressive. CHURCH OF THE DI8CIFLES. ' aa'i aad God's Psniihments?The PmutIPI Fat* of Foster and Its Let* sows Ibnwos by the Rev. George H. tpwsrth. One of the largest congregations that have yet attended at tbe evening services of the Chnrch of Ibe Disciples, at Stelnway Hall, was assembled at gbs services last evening. One reason of this, Mdde from the personal ponnlarity oi Rev. George (L Ilepworth, the pastor, was, no doubr, the pre (loon announcement that the subject of the disaourae would be "Man's and God's Punishment"," and the supposition that be would take up the case of Poster. In this respect lie did notdtaappolnt the congregation. He took for his text the following words of St. Paul:?"Who will render to every man according to his deeds." These words signified, ne began, that we were living in a world af law. They implied that we had a master, that i we are not to follow onr own caprices, but yield to j A supreme law. If we do well, then happiness will fallow. If clouds gather hope will remain. If we do til and give way to our appetites, at Inst we aball be ground to powder, open rebellion against ?od was but the SYNONYM or DEATH. ' God was willing to make a covenant with lis. If "we wonia pai. tua taw mio our lives, tr we would be subject to Him, then our safety in *Ure and there is nothing to fear in the great hereafter. If on the ether haud, we act basely, ambitiously' then misery and death will cover us with its pali hereafter. Cod gives us THE COMPASS TO STEER HY. I Bj fallowing this at lost we win an ehor Id the harbor of safe t v. The trouble was, they were all impatient. The things or eternity aud Christ are hidden. Instead I of going by compa<s and chart and tne polar star ; I we go into this inlet; we drill, and we rutcblc, we ' P>?7 with temptation and then complain at last that we are bruised and wounded. Pursuing ttus train of prefatory thought at eloiiuent length lieasked what restraints God had gtveu us to keep us good i And virtuous. He dwelt upon (he power el His j word and then pictured the power 01 conscience. I I We are our own jurors. He who follows . AN ENLKiHlENKO CONSCIENCE would not go astray. Another or Cod's gifts was lore ot family. The lore a man bears tor his wife js safety for him. This love and that, for Ills children press him forward in parent of the noble, of t he l?4 Love of character, again, he urged, was a rratcalnt?one of the energies oi the soul to keep one from the paths of evil. After all these adI wantages if a man goes wrong be does it knowing the probable I'onsoutiences. It was a melancholy tiling to iook upon the | WRECK or A MAX.

The result has shown that no bribeajr inenuship could change him. Urn K< sentiment was:?"Let the Ccnrts do their duty and t lie would do his." Thank God for a whole man. I . This fact stood out in monumental splendor and 1,1 should make them proud of their State. Another an thing this spectacle taught was the difficulty of fU( KNPORC1NU CAPITAL 1MINIS11MENT. . The old law, life tor hie, was supplanted at Rcth- ,,r Idiom. It died on the cross ut Calvary. It was not 18 religion. It was simply unadulterated barbarism. Every heart shudders as ft thinks of it.

CHURCH. . <"i The tanxe anil Cure of Crime?Iniquity it lu High Places?Disastrous Results of the Non-Knforccment of Caw?A [jj Brighter Day Dawning-Nct mon hy the b Rev. Henry Aston. t! A large and attentive audience gathered at the [J Second Street Methodist Episcopal church last o evening, attracted by the notice that the pastor, JJ; the Rev. Henry Aston, would preach upon the a subject, "Tho Cause and Cure of Crime." After e the usual religious exercises the reverend gentle- * man annonuced his text from Ecclesiastics viii. ^ 11:?"Because sentence against an evil work Is not r< executed speedily, therefore, the heart of the sous " or men is fully set in them to do evil." He said:? J The question ashed everywhere, "Why Is so much it crime Committed every day in this city of churches, u the metropolis of a Republic of Christian ctvlllza- ^ tion may find an answer in the text. The de- n pravity of our hearts turns merciful forbearance 8 into connivance of sin ami the hope of license to B( sin on with impunity, and the utter escape of pun- c ishment. The noti-enforccmeut of law, whether J* arising from inefficiency or infidelity of courts of justice or influenced by the WSIGHT OP GREENBACKS, or the strength of stiff backs of the criminals and A their supporters, will greatly accelerate and multiply the work of crime in all its forms. Its name is legion, and the proof amouts to a demonstration in T our city. The utter abandonment of our city gov- u eminent to fraud, bribery and ignoring the sane- n Uty oi tbe oath of office for the past few years is tl without a parallel in Christendom. Hence crime, i this many-headed monster, has walked abroad at noonday, hissing, stinging and killing peaceful clti- t( sens with impunity, and is the legitimate result of b< this criminality of the bench of justice. .. He then proceeded to consider the incipient cause ot crime. Bnck of aud underlying all this, cl and yet nearly allied to it, namely, the neglect ol u! early restraint, the curbing, controlling, destroy- P' ing the immoral tendencies or our nature. This ' belongs to parental and personal duty, and, it 'a being neglected or weak, the civil laws should step {" lu, Hi rent, IIUIU ituu piuinu viid cuifiru, riUllUg ' " this, law Is a larcc and crime becomes rampant. , After referring to that sympathy lor unfortunates , and best efforts for their reformation, which is the 'a duty of all, he continued, never in the history of " this city and State was crime so prevalent and *" criminals so numerous, and while the public are " loudly demanding their arrest und condign punish- 11 ment let us pause and look Into THE CAUSE AND CURE OP CRIME. , 8( And first, a grand primary cause of crime is the 1 {J1 lack of early moral culture and discipline. In con- 1,1 sidering this the speaker showed what great re- J0 suits often flow rrom small beginnings, and so it is with crime, which Ih born and grows, Its strength b! and growth depending upon the richness of the {" soil and tne culture it receives. Prom this he argued the importance of early training, snowing J" that this dnty belongs first to parents, which he proved by extensive quotations from the Scrip tures, and illustrated the evils which fellow on a disregard of it. Continuing, be said:?"Train up a child In the way he should go," is a law, with few exceptions, which prove the rale, and when it is not done by the parents it should be assumed by t the State in the interest or society. The great question in this country at this time is, How shall this training be accomplished ? 1 answer:?First, by the eld God-commanded way of parental instruction; second, by legal enforcement of our common school system; third, by the most 811 vigorous efforts to bring neglected children under in Sabbath school teaching; fourth, citizens should ii be a unit in support and enforcement of the law. i . He here entered into an elaborate and extended , 1,1 argument in lavor or the common school system Pi and tne introduction of liibles into the schools. 1 ol Continuing he said:? : gl! CITIZENS SHOULD WAKE UP j 0, to the importance of this early culture, for it will | 11 soon he too late; the seeds oi sin aud crime will ^ preoccupy the ground. Crime matures with lear- 1 ful rapidity, owing to our depraved natures and 1 ... evil teadencles and other causes. He relerred to i ?i souie of the more prominent criminals as ex- ] n. amples or ihis?possessed of culture, business j in capacity, line organizations, pleasing address, not- ; .. withstanding which uncurbed passion had pluugcd i them into murder. He showed how this apex or | crime was reached gradually and by general ludul- . gence In sinful appetites. In exhortation to tlie 0| young he urged upon them the Importance of this training, as shown in the fearful, desolating ruin f0 which "last young irron" are bringing upon them- 0, selves by an indulgence of their passions.

Or. Willard I'arker, an eminent living author, said c> In a speech lately that inirty-three and one-third Jy per cent of ail tlie deaths in tills great city were Dl caused by the use 01 alcoholic drinks, and that A Ji'.uui' nan uiru 11 urn tit." lu I II11 I V I'1UIII years. v.. Dr. Marmot], la the New York Medical Journal, _. ays Tor the last ten years the use or ln spirits has first cost the i>huoii a direci expense of n. $?on,010,000 cash, indirectly, $700,000,000. It has destrovert lives, sent 100,000 to rhe poor ta house, committed loo.oon to prisons and work- ^ houses, caused 1,000 suicides and a loss br fire and r, violence of $10,000,000. It has made joo.ow widows and cripples. While it pays into the revenue D. of the government $000,000,000. the whole cost tor educating and preaching the flospel is $40,000,000. Another cause ol crime is a lark of sympathetic 1 cl effort far the lallen. He argued irom the Bible and ( the spirit of Christianity that it is the duiv of I Christians to sympathize with the nnlortunate and ,v to strive by every means to lead them away from ?|-j guilt and s'in, anil that the absence of the requisite cc earnest labor for the fallen was a great cause of ?.j crime. And yet tnere is a limit, beyond which we cannot and ought not to do h( more than shed aur tears aid utter our ... sorrow and sympathy. While Jesus wept over tri Jerusalem He pronounced the coming doom. While llt] Paul worked day and ntgbt for the unsaved he foretold coming wrath. Hence the non-en force- j ment or law fa one great cause of crime, and its 1 enre in this city is a kettbn to law and jtsticb. That a man could he found guilty of murder in the tirst drgrce cauaed an evident surprise among us, resulting irom the previous nan-enforcement G 01 What is the design or law and rulers? I will let Ht. Paul answer. Referring to the law of God he says the law was our schoolmaster to hrtng us to Christ. Again read Romans, chapter 7, third, lourfir and fifth verses. Hence we see that in God's wlstunn he has decided that rules and rulers should be ordered for the punishment of evil doers, for a warding and correction of the evils of OI society. He their proceened to ebow how the law n had been trampled 00, and argued irom recent " events thai the <Ut?p ?/ a bright**, J>etier day 14 te ,K HERALD.

Hit high mass at the Cathedral yesterday was ?ll attended. The whole front of the church, at Ik, the part uear the doors on Idott street, is monopolized by Italians, who rscalously untcd their beads during service, and after trcts as zealously prayed tor pennies outside the ors. The music of the mass was very tine. Merdante's mass in G minor was sung, minus the iloria.'' At the offertory "Fac nt portent," from issiui's -Stabat Mater," was effectively reared. (Miring the elevation Mr. Gustav Hchmlta, e organist, performed an exquisite extempore, ,d at the conclusion of the mass he played one of s own grand marches. Father MoNamee ceie, ated mass, and the seruion was preacned by itlier Kearney. THK SffRMON. After reading the Gospel tor the day the reverend ait Ionian proceeded to explain TUB LKMHON Or HUMILITY contained. Tlie gist ol his remarks will be found the following:? In this holy season of Ijont, when, in aceordance ith the maudatos of our holy mother the Church, e are mortifying our smoil flesli, it. 1h meet ana st t hat we shouln also look to our spirit and curb id correct any little Irregularities that wo may id it to he possessed of. It is true wo mortify the isa in order to bring the spirit under control, and ill" there is a sentiment that all of us. whether cli or poor, entertain in a greater or a lesser deree. I have reference to our inherit pride?that sin which has descended i us from Adam and Kve. This is the unmonest sin on the calendar, tor the reason that seeuis to lie inseparable froui our flesh and blood. ,'licn viewed from iitur its enormities are not as pparcut us when we examine and closely scrutine it. This Bin of pride has iieen from t ime tinnic lorlal the curse an<l Acourge ol mankind. It was ride that caused Locilcr to fall trom his high state to the miserable degree ol devil. It was ride, in their own knowledge, that caused Adam id Kve to eat the foriiiddeu fruit and to be turned om Paradise. In the history of nations pride has orked worlds of wrong. The time was when a lere word as to the strength of t wo powers would inse them to war upon each other toRettlethc ucstion and satisfy the empty worldly van,y. Among nations'a better state of things Is cginnlng to exist, but among the people the same s sore still cats Us way to the heart and jut. It may be stud that our pride affects none ut ourselves; this is a pseudodox opinion, and io insidious poison it contains is only discovered y its effects. Accepting the premises that pride nly affects ourselves, what then are its effects ? ur catechism asks, "What doth it protlt a man il e gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" he answer is obvious to the most unthoological mong you. and still you sometimes forget that very man's duty is to save his immortal soul, liicn iiod hus given in his charge. If ride only affects ourselves, that is the cry strongest reason why wc should enounce it, and, after rejecting it, practise hulillty that we may lorever guard against its ream. The Bible is full of the most admirable cxmples ol humility, and prominent among them i Jesus himself, who was sent, as an example to s; John, who declared he was but the voice ol tie crying In the wilderness, and last, Magdalen, rhn, proud in her Bins, renounced them, together ffth her pride, and wept tears of bearttelt annish. Lei me exhort yon all to look to what I nave kid and try aud renounce the little, pride you may utertaln and practise humility and penance. rhlch will be sure to call upon you tbe grace and lessing of Cod?a blessing which 1 wish you all. CHURCH OF OPE SAVIOR. , Lost Soul?Kind Words About Foster? Sermon by Rev. J. M. Pullman. The Rev. J. M. Pullman preached last night in renor's Lyric Hall on "A Lost Soul." He took Ills :xt from the Lamentations,ill, SI:?"The Lord will ot cast off forever." He said he denied the leory that tbe "lost soul" was one on which the ord would inflict all his Infinite resources of irment. A great many people coold not elp being in a condition of degradaon, but, although the attention of most lurches was directed to low places of misery for asaved souls, lie would ask them to look to high laces for such souls. He would seek them in lose ranks of society whefe the conditions were .vorable for a higher and better life. He had card people speak about the so si of the poor nnruinate man that was lost last week. He did not link this was a lost soul. When a man was lost > the higher law he was lound by the retributive ,ws of God. This very penalty was a means of resinn ion. The divine spark in t he human soul could ever be entirely extinguished. A soul exposed i tha uf nvndl ftivu a? tlt\MI ha malnisin/id its was a condition which no human soul wan per placed in. The phrase, "An endlessly lost nil," could not he round in the Bible; but they id assurances, on the contrary, that the Savlonr id merry and love lor all human sin. A Unite an could not commit an infinite offence. The ord had never lost an atom ol his creation and b could not lose a human soul. He asked them to dure the loving sympathetic soul gazing from saven at another soul suffering the endless torcnts of hell. God was Jast and powerful, and tese attributes worked under His infinite love, e did not believe that any soul could maintain its >flant attitude against the divine love. LYBIO HALL he Enigma of Lift, "Hew to Lort Tonr Neighbor"?Sermon by the R?v. O. B. Froth Ingham. Spring's fresh, bright face and warm, welcoming alle called,oat the charch-goers and fashionables large numbers yesterday morning. At Lyric all, between Forty-first and Forty-second streets, le attendance was large, as It always Is. Mr. rotblngham's discourse was based npon tbe words Christ, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy If." It is related of Jesus (lie began) that on ie occasion, being accosted by a man and asked le way to eternal love, lie replied, "Thou shalt love ie Lord thy God with all thy heart and soul." And. ;tiug upon this principle, yon will find the cteriil love. To know how to love every man is somcitng very difficult ts find out. It is the mystery of ystenes, the enigma or life. There ts no question i theology that compares with It. If we look at lis matter we find there are THREE WATS OP TESTING I.OVK ir a human being?love of soul, love ol body and ve of qualities. The love of the soul Is the rescue the soul mm the judgment to come. It consists i making the connection wltb God strong: there* re all these churches and preachers. This love r soul is something which no one understands but believer In the evangelical. This love of soul baa o social meaning at all. It has nothing to do with ant or crime or sin; It has nothing to du with the roblem ol pauperism or reform. If there were no sreafter it would have no significance. Leave out /angelical theology, with the scheme for the iture, and this love of soul will fie nothiagr. The ve of soul being given up THE IS)VE OE BOOT alms attention. Whether we have a soul or not is Incarnated. All aensutioa is physical. All tin Is first ol all nhvsicul. Humrer. beat. cold. ce, poverty and crime make the body suffer. Love m regard to the body. It means a roof for the fortunate, tire for the cold and food for the mgry. The love of man Is tte love of his bodv, id It consists iu diminishing his misery. Pain la ic uglv thing that all people hate. The New Teaiment aaya, "There ahull be no more pain." Love eans money, soup houses, aa.vlams and places of Huge. This kind of love shows itself towards iminals in trving to make their fate as easy as jssible. We see It In the demand that all prisons lull be conducted upon kind principle*. This cud of indicting pain is nt the bottom of the aims against CAPITAL ITNISHMBVT. Men would rather be imprisoned for life than uTer the agony of death by the axe or halter, icy would give up everything rather than under* the intense agony of those dreadful seconds, in we plt.v wretched men and women too much * hy not dismiss them iu a trance ? Is this love of >dy the love of man ? The love nf manhood and e love of qualities are the test of life. It Is not e Action of the soul or the sensations of the idy that aakes the man. It is quality. BROOKLYN CHURCHES. PLYMOUTH CHURCH. rand End of Punishment? Universal Conviction of lmpnnlty?Hsii(l-ig a Step Back Toward* Barbarism?Jus. Publication of Criminal Literature. Mr. Beecher's sermon yesterday morning was ic called forth by the events of the past wesk. la text was Kcclcslastes, vtlL, II?"Because sennee anuut ag evil wofJJs AM Allotted ?J*edv MAIjtCH 24. 1873.?TRIFL1 ily, therefore the heart or the eon* of men le fully set in them to do evil." Whcncnmo breaks loose, said he, the natural impnisa of ever/ one is to blame the police and the laws. Every one cries out lor severer legislation to intensity punishment. This matter of punishment cannot > ? settled in a moment; the subject is not easy; it taxes the most lliougutiul men the ^orld over. What society can do with Us criminal members involves so much and runs so doep that scennty against criminality is the greatest study that can be given to any one. The grand end ol punishment in Human society is either lite protection 01 society or the REFORMATION OS TBI! CULPRIT. These, after all, are one. Human society has no right ol [?iiishinent for the sake ot revenge. It is usually Bald that punishment is for the sake ot pro tection. Society never protects itself so well at when it reforms. How, in what degree and wltt what severity is a matter which experience mnsi decide. According to the condition in which so ciety finds itself iWms a light to punish. If the society is barbarous tnen the punishments may be barbarous, but when sucioly m carried up and ele< vated it hits no longer a ngbt tosnch punishments, The prevention of crime it* the duty at one end uf well u? punishment at t.lic other. The duty In correlative. No ho tciy has a right to punlHh when 11 does not prevent, in attempting to prevent crime experience determines lhal it is not severity. but OBl.TAiNYY AND CKLRRffr. which prevents It Is ttie certainty ofsufforinff in connection with wronv at once which dotors, ait tb'iHoiawM which lie in ttie future are neglected; the hope of evcape mollifies. If the wrong apd the penalty were not a hand's breadth apart then there would be prevention. That crime is increasing there can be no doubt. What 1h the cause 1 Kuititration is one cause We have to deal not only with out own o'rltuinuls, hut with those ol , other countries. The ore valence of crime in snob i a place as New York ciiy is not to be taken at showing the average. As a place increases the temptations to wrong increase. The Increase ol property is a great one; men sae truth less regarded, lionest.v less regarded, until the gradation from right to wrong seems small ; and D1MNK, INSANITY is another. The use or liquor has been lunch abated in the regulated classes, but In the unregu luted cues it has Increased, and criminality spring! largely irom the unregulated classes. But, abovt aii, is the almost universal conviction or impunity The hulk of criminals are young, In whom hop* predominates over reflection. There arc man; things which give this impunity?first, the coward lee ol housenohlers, who will not. protect thef premises, it men ue as white as their sheets wliei they hear a thief in the house, insti ad of protect ing it, it gives impunity. No man is lit to kee[ house unless lie can defend it, It is impend; founded on cowardice that makes it easy forthievei to enter houses Now, while you curse the tide save u little for yourself. Jusucc is representee with handaiiko KYKB. and so the officers of justice think it their duty t< have their eyes bandaged, and when men are ar rested there arc so tnauy chances ol escape b.t compromising with the ponce or properly holders by political influence, by pecuniary influence. 1 think there never was a step so backward toward! barnurism as the election of judges by the people Judges know that political influence keeps them u their places, and they arc afraid of oliendim voters. There is a vast pecuniary intluenci brought to bear on our courts. A iuan withou friends is sent up without delay, because it telli well to do it once in a while; but it a man ha friends money reigns. It is held that every mai has a right to defence. This is correct in a genera sense, but the extent to which it has been carriei lias almost ruined our courts. II there be such lat itude, U genius can pervert juslice, then it is tin patron oi crime, what is the remedy lor this '/ education and re ligion and Increase of legislation in the directtoi oi cleanliness, health, distribution of populaiioi and the discarding of BKUTAl. PUNISHMENTS, such as hanging. I do uot say the death penall; ought never to be used; it Is right in low stages d society, when they have no means of keeping uric oners, but in the higher grades 1 hold it is wrong Tae existence of it renders conviction reluctant un< uncertain. It does uot produce the effect it once did I think execution does not deter, but incites crime A man who has to spend forty years of his life In ; penitentiary is a better example to society than i man who is hanged and forgotten. It is goiui back towards barbarism. As long as men are exe cuted I think jurors will stretch low to let crlnu nais escape. There ought to be a more human and Christian way of regarding criminals, not a brutes, not as having forfeited all rights. If i man had slaia a hundred men he would have hi rights, not his right of liberty: but no tnau can bi divested ol the right that he Is the child o. God; i does not follow that we are not to pnnish, only NOT AM A 1IKAHT but as a man. When therefore our pnmehment are ameliorated our convictions will multiply The pardoning power in the community has been source of widespread dissatisfaction. It is sal that it gives impunity to crime. I hold that tb pardoning power of the Governor is a safety valve Could all those who are conilnrd in prison he he! In oheck without hope ? But it does not seem wis that the pardoning power should reside in the Ex ecutlve. It ought to be in a council, and ther ought to be a certainty of punishment, milder hu sure. Justice must not be represented by a bea or a lion, but by an angel. When punishment 1 lessened then criminality will lessen. We ar ceasing to dignity crime by Its Introduction Inn literature. We are FF.I) ON CBIlfK. What was there In Foster that we have been fe< on him for two years past? Under pretence c giving news the newspapers have given colnmi after column to him. To this man has been givei a consplcuousness?not desirable, to be sure?tha has been denied to savans. I do not believe yoani .people can read the dally record of crime and no be injtred. The publication of criminal news u such vast quantities is morally injurious to tin community, and tends to produce that state out o which crime comes. There are one or two questions, said Mi Beecher, which I should like to ask you. Wba have you done to prevent crime or to reforr criminals? When it Is known that alcohol! drinks are the cause of ninety per cent of th criminality, have you ever tried to stop the sale c it? Do vou feel that you have a right to ride in th state as travellers ride in a railroad car? II tha which our Master said is true, there is many an many a man who goes out of life whose chances t the next world are better than those of the one who are left. God said to the Pharisees, "the publ can and the harlot shall enter the kingdom < heaven before you." TALMAGE AT THE ACADEMY. Jesus Christ the Only Comforter?Tb Victims of Slander and Abuse?Is th Preacher Rebuking His Critics f?Th Emigration from Time Into Eternity. Mr. Talmage preached to an Immense congregt tlou. as usnal, yesterday morning. Every seat wa occupied, and those who came late were provide with accommodations In the orchestra. Mr. Posi the precentor, who had been absent for a numlie of .Sundays, in consequence of a severe cold, r< turned yesterday, having almost fully recoverec and led the singing. Among the announcement made by the pastor previous to the sermon was th | fact that the grand fair at the Academy, for tb | benefit of the rebuilding hind, would open on Tuei I day night and continue day and eveuing until Hal urday. I Mr. Talmage preached from the text, "And Hi disciples went and told Jesus," being a stateuien of the action of the disciples alter the beheadim I of John the Baptist by order ol King Herod. Th ' disciples were thrown inta grief and dismay b j this event, and tbetr grief must And expression ! Jesus could understand their crrlei. and He tmme 1 diately soothed it. In the flrst place the prcache 1 commended the behavior of these disciples to al I those in the audience who were sinful and unpai uwneu. i urre tame a lime in aimusi every man history when tie felt troni Rome source that he ha< an erring nature. The thought might not havi such liett as to tell him; It might be only like thi flash in an evening clond Just alter a very hot Hum mer lay. tine man, to get rid of that impression would STIMULATE HIMSELF WITH ARDENT SPIRITS, another would seek sec u laritics: hut some timed i man could not get rid of this impression. The fac was that when a man lound out that his eternit; was poised upon a perfect uncertainty and tha the next moment hta root inav slip, he must eh : something violent to make himself forget Where hi ; stood or fly for refuge. Driven, perplexed am harassed as you have been by sin, "go and tel i Jesus." "Oh," but a man Raid, "instead or curini ; my wouutl you want to inake a wound of convlc I tion." Have you never known a Burgeon to And i chronic disease, and then, with Rharp caustic, buri ; it all out, and the health come again* Ho flic gract of Ood comes to the old aore el Bin. It has loir i been rankling there, bnt by that grace I is burned out threngh these tires or conviction ; "the fleah coming again as the flesh of a littli child." With the ten thousand unpardoned sin: ; Of your life "go and teli Jesus." I commend the behavior of the disciples to ai who are tempted. I have heard men In mtdllle sa? they have never had temptations. If the} have not, It is because they have never tried to re gist, and have not tried to do right. A man hop pled and handcuffed, as long as he lies quietly hi does not test che power ol sin; hut when he rtaet up and with determination resolves to SNAP THR HANDCUFFS or break the hop;'", then he Hnds the power of th< lrou. Aa long a? we go down the current we seen to get along smoothly ; bat when we turn and hca< the other way toward Christ and heaven oh, how we have to lay to the oars It la all folly for one man to sa. he conld not be tempted aa ansther la. The tern perament decides the Rtyle of temptation; bu anguine or lymphatic, you will have temptatioi What are von to dot Tell everybody of It? Ah wh?t aiUr IBM 90* would 1*1 with ?01 JV?

Again. 1 commend the behavior of the disciples to all Ihosc who are abused and slandered and persecuted. hen llerod put John to death the disciples knew that their own heads were not safe. And do you know that every John has a Herod? There are persons in Ufe who do not wish you very well. Your misfortune** are honeycombs to them. Through their teeth thev hiss at you, misinterpret your motives ami would be ulad to kkr you upset. No man gets through life without a pommelling. I Nome slander comes for you horned, tusked and j hoofed to gore you. and what are you to do ? I tell yon plainly that all who serve Christ must sutler persecution. It is the worst sign in the world for yon to i*e aide to sivy, "1 haven't an enemy In the world." A woe is pronounced m this Bible of the one of whom everybody speaks well. If you are at peace with all the woTld and everybody likes you ami approves your work it is because you are au idler iu the Cord's vineyard and are not doing your duty. It was so In the times ol George Whiteflekl and John Wesley, and what is true or the pulpit is ti ne ot the pew and the street and the shop and the store. It is the worst sign in all the world, I tell you, if you are any of you this moment at peace with all the world. The rcltgiou of Jesus Christ is war I It Is a challenge to "the world, the flesh and the devil." But what are you do when you are as sard ted and slandered and abused v Go out and hunt ur run si.andghkk ? Oh. no, silly one. While vou are explaining away a falsehood in one place fllty people will just have heard or it. I counsel yon to anot her course. While yon are to omit uo opportunity of setting , yourselves right, I want to teli you of one who had the hardest things said about llun. whose sobriety was disputed, who was persecuted as a babe ami spit, upon as a man, and who was howledat utter lie was dead. 1 woulu uavc you go to Him. "Go and tell Jesus." And I remark again, I commend the behavior ot the disciples to all those who may bo j bereaved or desolate by the Joss of friends. Oh, , how many here I God has His own way of taking , apart a family. We must get out of the way for , coining generations. We must got otT the stage ' that others may came on.

Dr. Wild preached yesterday morning from First. > Corinthians, ill. a?"For we are laborers together , with God; yc are God's husbandry, ye are Cod's . building." ' The sermon was eminently practical, bearing upon the needs of Divine assistance iu every-day events. "Religion,'' said the speaker, "gives to the possessor a motive and a sentiment, not. simply local, but universal, stretching beyond time Into the impenetrable realms of eternity, g Increasing knowledge enlarges the domain of the s attentions ami adds iutenslty to the motive, as i by the facilities of the press one becomes tamiltur 1 witii the doings or tlie nations. So in spiritual re1 lations one becomes equally cosmopolitan in motive and sentiment. There is a difference between e the two. Motive belongs to the intellect, sentiment to the affections: and a mire sentiment is made so by a uoble motive. We, as a community, a have been alternating between compasslou and a justice during the past week, l alludc to TUB MYHTKRIOITS F1KATH OK GOODRICH.

Tltis feeling of vengeance may be opposed to dod'H a teachings, but it is natural in the tirst knowledge i j we have of crime." Dr. Wild expressed his conir i victmri t.liat. the assasin was a woman, who for some domestic cause had perpetrated tbe deed. ? THE HEEALD ALMANAC. * [From tbe Brockport (N. Y.)
