The English University Boat Rack took place jester lay afternoon on the Thames, over the well-known course troni Putney to Mortlake. For the fourth time running victory has perched upon the light blue of the Cantabs. All London enjoj'cd the bright dny and the fine race, and whether the ilark blue or light lt| n/t utna !%<. f'n /A/\lrt? HM b fVin mnaeac ?fo have no doubt each side was vehemently cheered. London indeed may well be proud of the specimen* of English muscular manhood which make up the Oxford and Cain1 ridge eights. Every year the boat race creates a furore in London second only to the Derby, nnd every year the learned doctors discuss the benefits of athletic exercises versus the dangers of overtraining. Whatever way the race ends all London is satisfied, for cveryb ly believes in the perfect fairness of the race, and the losers receive as much recognition ns the victors. One of the traditions of this race is that both the ctows should wind Tip the day with a supper at Evans', in Covont < lard n, a quaint old place, where sweet-voiced .1 oja sing glees and chornses, and the groat tl.I onal beefsteak is served in a good old sty.e.

Tb<- new Spanish Republic seems born to evil fortune in the very beginning of it# exigence. For the moment at leant the Onrlistn are achieving triumphs over the armies of Spain?triumphs which Amndeus may have considered certain before abdicating the throne. What may be the result of these victones time only run reveal ; but the Herald's special despatches this morning show them to be victories of no insignificant magnitude. Hitherto the followers ot Don Carlos have l>een only scattered bands of adventurers among the mountains; but these successes give them something like the appearance and authority of an army. With the fall of Berga they will have in their hands the key of Catalonia and will l>e able to operate with increased force and effect. What vigor the Republic may be able to show in opposing them is another problem of the future. It is not unlikely that parts of the army are disaffected. The interminable Cuban war has depleted Spain of much of her fighting material. The latest report from Madrid aunounces that the government attempt at a levy en masse, in Catulnniu has failed completely, and that the Minister of Finance has proclaimed officially to his colleagues that the Spanish nation is on the brink of absolute financial insolvency. Conflicting interests and the conflict of parties 1 tend to make everything uncertain and chaotic. Circumstances over which Seiior Figucras and 1 his associates of the young Republic could have no control have made the task of the republicans a peculiarly arduous one ; but, in spite of Curlist successes and of base intrigues at home and abroad, we believe the Republic will succeed, and that its success 1 will be the first great step toward the triumph of republican Europe. It may be set down as an axiom that theTe are no longer settled ideas of government anywhere. Even in the United States the croakers predict despotism and the imperial power of the one-man rule. In England the intelligent part of the laboring classes detest the I limited monarchy, and poverty and discon- 1 tent will inevitably overthrow the throne of the unsympathetic German princes. Germany, cemented as it is under the sway of the I present Emperor, is certain to yield more and ' more to republican ideas. France is repub- 1 lican, but the final triumph of the French Re- 1 public depends in some measure upon the " success of the Republic in Spain. Both may ' fail, but fuilure now will be only another step 1 toward stability in the future. In all civilized countries republicanism must triumph in the 1 end. No wine American, free from crotchets and free from a ridiculous worship of foreign titles and customs and institutions, believes the American Republic in danger. It is an article of his faith, bom into his very blood and bone, that republicanism must become the political creed of the world, and yet ho is so conservative in his beliefs that it is seldom he becomes a propagandist. The American republican says to himself, "We can wait." We can afford to smile at English averments in regard to the stability of British institutions, knowing the discontent that is undermining the monarchy. We can regard with moderate complaisance the successes of royalist factions in France and Spain, I because in both countries the downfall of royal the Republic. If lie iH checked and driven ' back among the mountains from which he has just emerged he will be as good as beaten, i The number of his adherents, augmented by circumstances, is few at best. Other factions are as much opposed to him as to the Republic. There can be no hearty and permanent uniou among the friends of monarchy in Spain. So far as we can sec the chances are with the Republic, and it only requires prudencc and vigor in the republican leadcra to destroy the monarchical pretensions of Bourbons like Dun Carlos or doubtful Bourbons like I'riuce Alfonso. The history of the Last century shows that republicanism does uot depend for stability upon isolated success or fuilure. Even in America the Republic could scarcely have lived an uninterrupted life if rival elements had been contending for a throne which had sunk deep into the traditions of the people. It is not easy for any nation to throw off all tho traditions and habits of the past and sternly subdue every attempt to reestablish the old order of things. France has tried it time after time, and yet tho first efforts only resulted in giving her new dynasties - uyuusuea vuicu vyun now arc looaiug ior me j overthrow of the Republic. Spain tried it once, anil almost immediately sought out a foreigner and made him Kiug of the Spaniards. When the throne of Amadous fell Dou Carlos thought it his time to gain the throne. Somo day l'rince Alfonso will be making a like effort against Don Carlos if the latter should - overcome the Republic. Yet Spain will come 1 buck u?iin ftud again to the Republic, tend the ), SUNDAY, MAKC'H 80, Republic vrill live when the effeminate Spanish princes ere forgotten. Though we regard the movements of Don Curios as jmssessing little significance in themselves, whatever their result, there is one nspect in which they are of striking importance. They indicate the steady growth of republican sentiment and the deadly hostility of crowned heads to the growing giant The unsettled notions which men hold with regard to government are a strong evidence that the chaos of to-day is the germ of the true republicanism of the morrow. Emperors and kings may well endeavor to stay a tide which is sweeping them away. It is not impossible that Dou Carlos' hands are strengthened by the men whose power is made stronger by his success. They and he have everything to gain by this contest, for, after all, it is not an :,3i~ u il. , or imperial rule is always followed by the Republic. Chaos is always averted by republic.) uism, and uo longer by the terrible ordeal ol' the tirst French revolution. When Louis ! Philippe abandoned his throne the Republic ! saved franco from anarchy. When JNapoleon I III. and his empire fell together at Sedan the , Republic again interposed, subdued anarchy ' and conquered a peace. When the shameless life of Isabella II. made even the Spaniards i disown her the Republic kept the peace ; and, Inst of nil, when Amudcus abandoned a crown he had too hastily accepted it was again the Republic which kept Madrid in order. The people of Europe are depeudeut upon repubi licauism for the preservation of their nationI alilies when their tottering monarchies fall. No greater compliment could be paid to republican endeavor nor could there be nny more certain sign of a universal republican triumph. Viewing the conflict in Spnin from a standpoint so dignified and so philosophical we can find nothing in the successes of the Carlists to j cause uneasiness. The royalist factions? | whether they are the followers of Don Carlos or l'rince Alfonso or of some other pretender to the throne?must be met and beaten in the field before there can be peace for the Republic. Whatever accessions of strength it is possible for any of them to gain they must gnin now. If they mean to conquer they must conquer now. A scries of slight successes will amount to nothing unless the result of them as n whole is overwhelming and immediate. The command of n province like Catalonia is not the control of Spain. Madrid rules, whatever Catalonia may desire; and unloss province after province falls into the hands of Don Carlos time, will weaken him and strengthen in matters religions. The Church should confine itself to its own proper province ; the State should do the same. Let the churches be left to themselves, and the level will soon be reached. Banishment ok the Bonapartes.?President Thiers, it is reported, as a last resort against the Bonapartes, will shortly introduce a bill in the French Assembly demanding their banishment from France. Prince Napoleon (Plon rion), in his demand to be recognized as a French citizen, with all the rights attaching to such citizenship, has doubtless driven President Thiers to this desperate expedient of the Ixtnishmeut of the Bonapartes. In the proposition ho confesses that the Empire still commands a dangerous party in France. But will the expulsion of the Bonapartes weaken their cause ? Will not such expulsion rather strengthen them on the ground of a needless and anti-republican persecution? That is the question.

The paper on this score speaks for itself; but the public may not be aware that it is the first time in the history of the Huiuij) that the quadruple sheet of ninety-six columns fell so far short of the demands for space of advertisements und news as to compel the issue of a twelve column supplement in addition. We have many times of late found ourselves considerably chagrined at the necessity of choosing whether we should omit valuable news that we had paid for or advertisements for which our business community were anxious to pay us. The puzzling position is not so comical or so easy to decide us would appear at the first blush. There is a serious, weighty contruct on each side, and even in the best arranged compromise one or both must suffor. To a struggling journal the windfall of a rush of advertisements might settle the question of news pretty effectually. To a moderately successful journal the advertisements might prove a temptation hard to resist, and the human likelihood is that the news would suffer. To the Hebaud, however, whoso prosperity removes greatly the necessity of a narrow view of the situution, it can only be decided on the fairest and most impartial valuation of the items on cither side lowest down in the scale of interest. To the Hebald, with its reputation to sustain of being the foremost newB-gatherer of the world, and the mouthpiece of independent opinion, the necessity of giving nil the news and the falness of its views thereon becomes paramount. On the other baud the advertiser has undeniable claims upon publication outside of the money he is willing to pay. These are briefly told. The advertise ment is a means by which a person seeks to appeal to a wider circle than he could otherwise command. In nineteen cases out of twenty he desires to muke his appeal on a certain day. After that date it may be valueless to him, or at least of diminished benefit. From the regularity with which the contract to publish in an indicated issue has been kept it becomes highly improper to break faith with him. When he presents and pays for his advertisement it becomes a real duty to publish it. To return his money would not fully compensate him for the loss, and if the Geneva Court of Arbitration hnd not ruled as it did he might have good grounds to sue for "indirect damages," based ou the profit he ought to have reaped. There is only one real escape from the difficulty, and that is to publish all the advertisements and all the news. The Herald of eighteen pages, which we issue to-day, is a proof that we have determined fully on that course. To those unacquainted with the busy inner life of a great daily paper this resolution may seem as simple as knocking in the end of an egg, to mako it staud, did to the Spanish courtiers with whom Columbus had his renowned discussion about discovering America. It requires, nevertheless, the consideration of a multitude of details which we do not now propose to relate. Every newspaper establishment has a well-known limit to its production. Its maximum issue of printed copies is regulated by rules the public do not appreciate. The number, capacity and working speed of its presses are not, as many imagine, the only conditions of its productive power. If the Herald presses can run up to ft hundred thousand impressions an hour and can prepare a full edition of ninety-six columns in time for the mails and the carriers, it does not follow that with snch immense printing resources a ^twelve column supplement is a mere bagatelle addition. The time and facilities for "setting up," classifying, arranging, indexing, editing and stereotyping the entire mass of matter are limited, especially the time. In an establishment conducted on business principles there is as little waste force as possible, and hence every step forward in increase of size or circulation makes careful forethought a necessity in the mechanical branches as the occurrence of events at home and abroad does to insnre their being duly chronicled among the news. In the present case the symptoms of increased wants have not appeared altogether unexpectedly. The rise of the Herald in public demand has been Hteady

and continuous. The present number indicates sufficiently how we have prepared for the pleasing emergency. Need we add that further calls on our resources will be met with similar promptness and cheerfulness ? But what does this unparalleled prosperity of the Herald mean ? It is simply the strong pulse of the nation heating with gathering force and vigor. The Herald is the paper of the nation, not of a class or a patty, and it rises and prospers with the nation it represents. The full tide of the young nation's life-blood flowing fresh from the heart tingles in its lines. The energy, the persistence, the unconquerable courage of the people are infilirated with its thought, its aspiration and its achievements. That such a paper should be in rising demand, that men seeking to make their wants known through advertisements should seek its columns, are easily dedueible conclusions. An examination of its editorials, its news from every quarter of the globe, the extent and amazing vnriety of its advertisements, will show how this national, popular, non-partisan, nnseetarian spirit is sustained, and how it is justified by its great results of which success is only one. The growth of a paper like the Herald is, in some respects, surprising to those who have watched over it from its beginnings. Uncramped with fltn 4iou nf nnrfioB tVmt ricn uml foil nn shackled to men who come and go, nnswnyed by the stormy waves of popular passions that ebb and flow, it was laid open only to progress born of truth. Science laid its gifts at our door, nnd they were gratefully received, not to be hidden away like the talent of the parable, but to be made instantly of service in the career wo had chosen. Only a paper based upon the moqt catholic principles could immediately grasp the opportunities ofFered. and only such a paper could so soon and so fully reap the l>euefit. What seemed bold experiments, even to those who made them, were swiftly proven to be but the workings of a rational law, the new medium for which had been recognized, as it were, by instinct Such, for instance, was the application of the telegraph to news collecting. The heavy, dog I uutic, quarrelsome oartv journal bad all the mu; tuo luuuuuiiu^ ui it is nut a more contest as to who shall rule Spain, but who shall govern Europe. Even English statesmen contemning their Queen and her probable sucoossor, in their hearts are apt to regard the efforts of Don Carlos with favor, because ho is fighting the battle of royalty in Europe. The imperialists and legitimists in France look upon him with like favor, bocause the overthrow of the Spanish Republic gives them a chance to destroy the Republic in France. Bismarck and his master see in it at least the temporary overthrow of republicanism in Europe. But all these will be disappointed. Republicanism lives though all its forms perish, and the fact that in the las't throe-quarters of a century it has so often been the savior of the two most royal, if not loyal, nations of the world shows plainly enough that when monarchy is thoroughly effete the Republic will be the accepted model of the State. A pure Bourbon on a European throne would be a spectacle which the world has not seen in a long time, which it scarcely expected and certainly never hoped it woukl see again. But it would bo an event which would lead only to fresh troubles and result in a deeper growth of republican sentiment. If a king is to govern Spain for the time, it is, perhaps, as well that he should he Don Carlos as anybody. Unless he is unlike all the Bourbons who ever governed either Spain or France before him be would not long be a ruler. Even as monarchists among monarchists the Bourbons are out of sympathy with Europe and the world, ind the crowning of Carlos would be the first stop toward the destruction of a spectre more terrible than the aspirations of men to be free, which have so long terrified the Cabinets of Continental monarchs. Route and Prussia?The Church and State Question. Prince Bismarck has fought another great fight and won, as no doubt he thinks, another great victory. In the Hkrald of Thursday wc gave a full outline of Prince Bismarck's speech in the Upper House of the Prussian Parliament. The speech was a success, because it convinced the House that the Prince was right and enabled him to carry his measure. The speech and the bill in support of which it was spoken have commanded a large Amount of attention in F.nrone. It is nossi ble that the one and the other have commanded more attention than the merits of either deserve. Prince Bismarck is up in rebellion against the Catholic Church, and because he believes that Rome is opposed to the unity of the German Empire he has abolished the fifteenth and eighteenth articles of the Prussian constitution of 1848? articles conceived in the genuine spirit of liberty and which gave the different religious denominations control within their own proper limits?and so has placed the entire ecclesiastical system of Prussia under the rigid control of a Minister of State. This measure, as Prince Bismarck confessed, was drawn up in the interests of the new German Empire, and in order that, in the new Empire, there shall be no imperium in imppT'O. Germany is to be reconstructed on the Prussian model, and Bismarck is resolved that there shall not be one infallible Prince, having his headquarters in Rome, and another Prince, fallible or infallible, having his headquarters in Berlin. We wish Prince Bismarck success in his novel and daring experiment. It seems to us, however, that the Prince, in exasperating his enemies, has not been multiplying his lriends. The now law must give pain all round. It is a specimen of legislation which was not uncommon in the sixteenth century. The question is, whether the nineteenth century will submit to the policy of Henry VIIL Alter all that Prince Bismarck has said, and after all that has been said and written on the subject, it is our opinion that this German difficulty, and other similar difficulties in Enrope, can only be settled by adopting the American principle and completely severing the connection between Church and State. This German difficulty is only another and a stronger argument in favor of the voluntary principle '?WITH SUPPLEMENT. preemptions of its directors engrossed upon party affairs. From gazing too long on the party it became the whole world to them, and they neither understood why anything more was wanted nor cared whether it was or no. To a journal that recognized intelligent human beings in I Avf oil i? 1 . 1 ___ ?.u?j lucuiuna ui nil purues anu virtues or rices in any party possessing either, the appreciation of aids from science to reach the growing needs of journalism was a simple matter. The essay and the success were easy of demonstration afterwards. The secret of the whole thing lay in the basis on which the Hehald was started. It was broad enough in principle to accommodate itself to any call of progress, and it needed thereafter only clear heads and willing hands to keep the Hebald abreast of its destiny. The fields of active, independent journalism have been wonderfully enlarged sines the Hebald first saw the day. Yet it can proudly say that its banner-bearers have been the pioneers in every one of them, and that in none has it ever lost ground. This, and the determination to seek opportunities for its activities wherever over the wide world there is anything of human interest to be found, keep it keenly alive to its duty. Its past and its present are not only guarantees for its future, but the measures on which its endeavors to surpass must be calculated. Subjects wear out like the types from which they are printed ; but in the world of to-day it only needs enterprise to replace the one and money the other. The fearless voice thnt defends and upholds right and justice and assails and condemns wrong is sure of its audience in a land where all men are free. The words which reach a million minds before the day of their utterance has grown into noon must, when formulating honest, untrammelled thoughts, wield a powerful influence. The journal which respects no person or doctrine when either is prejudicial to national, social or moral well-being, must, if otherwise up to the true journalistic level, be a mighty power. Thia brings its heavy responsibilities as well as every other attribute, managerial or mechanical, which goes to make up the true journal. We have not, in this general article, ilwelt 011 any of the special features of the Herald's work of late except in the nature of advertisements. We have said that they typified the commercial activity of the nation. At present they indicate a highly encouraging outlook for the Spring trade in all its branches. A markedly severe Winter is passing away, and business recovers from its hybernation with wonderful celerity. We present to our readers, with hearty congratulations, the Herald as the best evidence of this sturdy awakening. With it we wish to present the moral of this day's issue, that it instances prosperity because the nation is prosperous, and because in its earnestness, energy, activity and courage it is the representative journal of the whole people. The Brooklyn Detectives Still at Fault. The efforts of the Brooklyn detectives to make the woman Lucette Myers fit the place in then* theory designed for the murderess of Charles Goodrich have been futile. The Chief? the wondrous Chief?now thinks that Lucette Myers knows something, but has done nothing in the case?a chapfallen oracle, surely. Nevertheless, she is to be held "as a witness." What she is to tell is not clear to the Chief or the District Attorney ; but the pleasure of having a poor woman in prison to be mysterious over is irresistible. The great, grave and heinous fault the Delphian Chief has to find with Lucette Myers ho details to the elephant-eared Brooklyn reporters. It is this: ? "She will not talk about the murder unless she is questioned." It is surprising she should k/vl tlio iof Atilr mita liov oVi/inf ntin UUV, iUi UiU VUIU* V'UIJ HUi UUVItH uuo hundred and twenty questions in an hour. As a result he is convinced she knows something ; but what, he knows not. He is fixed alone in the belief that she has done nothing. Therefore he thinks she is too valuable a witness to be bailed out to make shirts for the Jewish lady in Orchard street for the support of her father and mother. While this is being enacted it is to be observed that the Brooklyn detectives have failed so far to find any trace of the woman who is known to have lived in Degraw street with Mr. Goodrich. Now wo wish to encourage all honest efforts which will bring the murderers to justice. The fortune which allowed the capture of Mrs. Myers should be supplemented by the skill which will arrest "the woman." In the Nathan case a Brooklyn lawyer was arrested on mere hearsay, and the necessity of discharging him weakened the case sensibly. Similarly this false scent after the woman in prison must make the real criminals feel more secure. Everything tends to point that there was not merely a woman in the case, but a woman in the murder. Is it possible that she has disappeared, leaving no trace which a skilled detective can follow? The woman Lucette Myers will, we understand, be called on to detail her knowledge on Tuesday at the ' inquest The Rev. Mr. Talmage?The "Senurge J of Small Corda" Needed. Our readers are now well aware of the novel scene which was witnessed on Thnrsdny night in our sister city, known all over the Union as the City of Churches. We refer to the subject not lor the purpose of reproducing the scene, with ; its unholy and offensive surroundings, but for j the purpose of recalling to memory another I scene, witnessed nearly two thousand years | ago. For Mr. Talmage's purposes the Brook- j lyn Academy is uow used as a church. There j he preuclies, there he baptizes, there be dis- 1 peases the bread and wine at the holy com- j munion. According to the Presbyterian canon | the Academy, so far as Mr. Talmage and his ! congregation know it, is a sacred edifice. In j that place, for the sake of filthy Incre, Mr. Talmage and his congregation are holding a fair ; and there, on the night above mentioned, and before an audience brought together for amusement and as an additional attraction to ticket buyers, the solemn ceremony of marriage was performed. Wo ask our readers to take in the scene as the scene was presented, and then to nsk themselves the question whether the Master could smile upon it. Happily wo have ous example to guide us in the premises (see the Gospel according to St. John, second chapter and thirteenth verse). On that oocasion the Master entered the Temple and found those that sold oxen and sheet) and dove*, and the changers ol nwuey , sitting. What did Ho do ? He made a scourg* of ttzxLvll cords, and drove them all out of the Temple, and the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overthrew the tubles. What did He say? He said:? "Take these things hence ; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise." What thought the Disciples ? They remembered that it was written:?"The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up." We commend this passage of Scripture to Mr. I Tulmage and to his congregation. We com in on u it especially to tne i'resuytery wtncti has Mr. Tulmage und hie congregation in charge. The public waits to see what the Presbytery will do. The Presbyterian public particularly expects thut the Presbytery will do its duty. Reflex ot the View* and Opinion* of the Religion* Prcis. The Christian Union this week addresses a few very pertinent words for writers, remarking that the number of people in the United States who are seeking to earn a livelihood or to augment their incomes by writing for the press is beyond computation, to judge from its own observation and experience. Says the editor: ? Every day we are appealed to, cither in person or by letter, by men and women who beg lor an opportunity to earn money by writing for the Christian Union, and in many Instances those appeals are enforced by stories of poverty and privation that excite our protoundest sympathy, ff we could accept all the mat ter urged upon our atteutlou in this way we might easily till ten sheets as large us this, every week, to the exclusion of everything else. What is true of the weokly press in this connection is equally true of the daily press, especially when, like the Heuald, a day is devoted to the publication of the lucubrations of religions correspondents. Jf we were to publish a quadruple sheet every day in the week we could scarcely find space to give the long and sometimes dry and tedious communications with which our religious table is weekly flooded. Hence we frequently find a capacious waste basket both convenient and necessary. Try as hard as we can, we cannot impress upon oar religious correspondents the necessity of brevity ; and for that reason, no doubt, many good ideas are lost to the eye of the general reader. If this class of correspondents would take pattern by the shorty concise and yet comprehensive epistles of our everyday correspondents, their efforts would stand a much better chance for getting into print, and thus contribute, no doubt, in a very great measure, to the enlightenment of the world at large. The freeman's Journal (Catholic organ), continues to tuke the Carlist view of the crisis in Spain. In referring to Don Carlos, who, the Journal hopes and thinks, will soon, be Charles VII. of Spain, it reminds its readers that this day (Sunday, March 30) is tha twenty-fifth birthday of the youthful aspirant for the Spanish throne. The Journal editor will to-day, he sayB, in his r^vn family, offer his communions "for one of the two princes who dare to say that they are children of tha Vicar of Christ, and that if they come to tha kingdoms of their several fathers they will rule as sons of the Catholic Church." Thera is no disguising the earnestness with which: the Journal presses the claims of Don Carlos,, and the fact that the editor relies altogether upon Catholic influences for the elevation of the young Catholic Bourbon to the throne ofl Spain is equally apparent. The Indeperulent, in referring to the large: number of converts who have recently joined! the various churches, says the fact is established that Christianity is not altogether effeta in this country ; that in spite of the croukinga of its faint-hearted confessors and the sneers of its confident adversaries, it yet possesses & good degree of vitality and proves itself am aggressive and conquering force in the latter half of the nineteenth century. To thesa new converts in the army of the Lord tha Independent gives the following words of pastoral counsel:? Remember always that godliness and manliness are not. twain, but one; that the test of piety i*< right living; and that a religion which does not. make \ou better husbands and wives, more dutiful, children, more faithful friends, more truthful witDMM, more honest dealers, morp kindly neighIntra mnrit natrintln riti/nna is u friiml ami a uaara Cod nave yon all Irom the deep delusion of a seitlmentai and sanctimonious piety, and lead yon Into1 the path of the jnst which shlneth more and mors unto the perfect day! The Evaiujelist, referring to the recent visit Of Governor Seymour, of this State, to the South and a conversation he had with one of its correspondents, says the Governor spokt* with much concern, and even anxiety, of tho probable fate of the four millions of emancipated slaves. An ex-slaveholder, an elder iir the Presbyterian Church, remarked to thi? correspondent: ? "They (the blacks) will remain hopelessly lgno? rant tor ages to come unless some active measure* are taken In their behalf." lie adds, "If toe Soutltj cannot furnish teachers the North must; but they must be mea of education and character." Bub the South is unequal to the taak to be accomplished. "If not aided from abroad thousands of these people will live and die without having theWord of God In their houses." The Observer has a long argument in favor of the death penalty in cases of murder. It remarks : ? The penalty must he applied with knowledge ami admission ol its authority: then us edleaoy win i>? demonstrated, but not otherwise. It must be applied to the crime of murder, not hheep-flteaUnna If It be applied to lower crimes murders will committed In order to escape; us well be hanged tor an old sheep as a lamb, .'or a man as a counterfeit sovereign. You drive men Into murderers if you misapply the murder penalty; and that fernclous habit has been the great source of false statistics against It in the case of murder. The Golden Aye also has an editorial on the subject of the punishment of criminals, in which it differs with the voatrvrr una aavocateH the abolition of the death penalty. Tha A'je avers that crime is on the increase because there is no certainty of punishment. The Liberal Christian believes that "no folly can be greater than for society to exeunt* crimes on the plea of drunkenness. It is saying to passionate, lusty and thoughtless youth, If yon want to do anything criminal, get drnuk and you can do it with comparative safety. It is multiplying and increasing the quantity of crime and the perils of society." The ,feicish \b>ssen<jr~ touches on "synagogue singing." saying: ?
