A fraction of forty votes over the number which is entitled to one delegate, will be ac corded a delegate.

Portland, May 4, 1876. Colonel Forney has had a remarkable dream. He dreamed the country covered the whole continent, that Philadelphia in creased in population ten-fold, and that other things grew in proportion. He does not in form ns if that $25,000 increased to $125,000 Upon the will of three men, the emperors of Russia, Austria and Germany, depends the tuiuic ui tuc a uini.’u uuuuiu iuujr see fit to demand heavy redress for the mur ders at Salonica, redress which the Sultan will not be able to grant, the Turks might as well cross the Bosporus. The election of a Democratic House filled Washington with ex-Confederates to run that branch of Congress. Should the Dem crats get entire control of the government it would tall into the hands o( the Southerners who have entire control of them. It is time to be looking about us. The boasted economy of the Democratic House has received another illustration. The cost of printing the testimony taken by the navy yard committee will exceed $50,000. One hundred and eighty-six pages are printed about the Kittery navy, and these are, the non-partisan associated press says, “of little value.” Everybody in Maine knew that when the testimony was taken. The shameful sale of a Senatorship in Connecticut is calling forth many stinging remarks about the Democratic party and its corruption. The Springfield Republican re marks : A very impracticable idealist, name of Pla to, lays it down as a universal law of politics that, when riches and virtue are placed togeth er iu the scales of the balance, the one always rises as the other falls; “in proportion as rich es and rich ‘men are honored In the state, vir tue and the virtuous are dishonored.” The re cent political history of this country furnishes some rather striking illustrations of this as sumed law. Certainly the results to date of the rich candidate plan in our neighbor state of Connecticut, for instance, are not of a sort to recommend it to the favor of people who pre fer their politics clean.

In its review of the finances the Nation says: The price of silver has fallen to 53d. In London, under sales by the German Go v ernment. In Congress, two cew bills rekt ing to silver change have been introduced— one by Mr. Randall, which proposes that the government shall continue in the silver busi ness and sh all buy §25,000,000 more silver bullion than it now has authority to do. The other was introduced by Mr. Wells, and It proposes that the mints shall be opened to all who have silver bullion, that the govern ment shall coin this at a fair rate, and that the limit of new subsidiary silver. shall bo §25,000,000. The difference between the two bills is, that Mr. Randall’s would have the Government take the risk of the fluctuations in the market price of silver, and that Mr. Wells’s would, while securing all the profits to the Government, have it avoid the chances of loss. Wall Street continues in a state of ferment over the railroad war, in which the New York Central maintains the position of independence recently taken, while the other lines have combined against it. Rates have been reduced, but the war thus fur has been less demonstrative than in previous conflicts, and it is surmised that each party to it wouhl welcome a settlement on honorable terms. Surmise rests on the certainty that every line must lose by a continuance of the war, and that no one of them is in a condition in which, whatever its local advantages, it can afford to make sacrifices. Money con tinues extremely abundant here and in Lon don. Gold shipments have been renewed on a large scale, not because gold is wanted in London, but because there is a dearth of other kinds of remittances. The value in gold of §100 greenbacks have ranged during the week between §88.59 and §88.89. Political News. Mr. Blaine has had a streak of luck; the household organ at Washington is pitching into him again, The Saratogian says that Horatio Seymour never learned to say yes and no; and that his latest epistolary prodcution is evidence that he isn’t improving in that direction. Secretary Bristow’s name was proposed for membership of the New Yoik Union League Cluh Tbiirsdav eveninsr. Mr. Bristow was black-balled, there being 12 negative votes out of 130 cast. The Tribune says that the two centennial investigators are Caulfield and Clymer. They have succeeded in getting hold of the wrong end of the mule more times than any others men in history. The Thurmauitc3 and Allenites are having it hot and heavy in the rurai Ohio counties. All the indications point to disturbed atmos' pheric conditions at the state convention. Thurman seems to be scooping in more dele gates just now than he was expected to. It is rumored that the next investigation to be undertaken by the Democratic scandal committees will seriously involve the Presi dent himself. It will relate to his conduct during the summer ot 1804 and the bpring of 1805, in disturbing the peace iu Virginia, and especially around Richmond. Interesting developmente are expected. Congressman Landers says, if correctly reported, that chairman Brown of the Con necticut Democratic state committee aud Mr. Burr oi the Hartford Time* told Mr. English, before thejeecent stale election, that Mr. Barnum would “take care” of hU own district and “do what was required of him in the rest oi the state,” provided he (Englssh) would put in a pool of $15,000 for campaign purposes to begin with.” Also that Mr. English, soon after this inverview, told Con gressman Phelps the senatorship was left open, as between himself and Barnum; “the best man to win.” Recent Publications. Meditations on the Essence of Christianity. By R. Laird Collier, D. D.. Boston: Roberts Brothers. For sale by Loring, Short & Har mon. Dr. Collier says iu his introduction to this little work, “After reading Feuerbach’s Es sence of Christianity. Buchner’s Force and Matter, and other books of like tendencies, I was led to look into my own heart to see if my faith in Christ and Christianity had been either destroyed or disturbed. I meant to make honest work of it.” The words which we have here italicized are wards of ominous import. For what can the heart do with the “tenden cies” referred to; or what thorough work can be expected of a man who for a single occa sion is going to make an effort to be honest? Why fall back on the heart ? Really that is retreat; it is an implied admission that against those who employ reason and understanding, and marshal the results of earnest study and reflection, the writer has nothing of like kind to oppose. He answers by demurrer. He ex pressly disclaims logical reasoning, repudiates proof, and finds only in his heart the reason of his faith— not as proof of it, but as sufficient ground without proof. As if he should say “I believe because I feel, and that ends the matter.” He actually does say: “To try to prove some things is to demonstrate nnbelief in them!” “My inquiry is in the interest of faith, [and he was going to be honest!] sol have no formal arguments to offer to bolster up UUMU »m*vu uuc uuij ICUUCUIJ Ul 8UV,il aiguiuruts is to destroy!” This is unconditional surrend er, the more to be regretted because it is need less and unjust; it is unjust both to Christian ity, thus betrayed, and to the method which Dr. Collier thinks he is employing. The trans cedental method is not so ineffective as that; and for the very reason that it does not break loose from all contact with solid reasoning, to flap phantom wings against thin air. There are indications in this book that the author’s contempt for processes of reason arises from structural mental defect; for these ‘•Meditations” have no direction', or if for a moment they lead you one way. the next mo ment they lead yon back again, and when you close the book you are somewhere near the starting point, with a dense fog around you. For example: ‘ ‘To have faith in Christ is some thing, though very little; to have the faith of Christ is everything; this is to have heaven and God.” But it is impossible—we would say in passing—to have the faith of Christ, knowing it to be his,without also having faith in him. If I know that my ruling principle of conduct and guide of thought is also that of a certain other person 1 cannot help having faith in that person. This seems to he a distinction without a differ ence. But let that pass. The author says, at least, that to have faith in Christ is very little, to have the faith o/Christ is everything. And the faith of Christ, he further says, is “faith in God,” To have faith in God, then, is the main tliftg, is everything. “The very mission of the master [Why “master?”] is hindered and defeated when faith stands still in him. This is obstruction, not mediation.” “There is a eeese in which, therefore, faith in Christ hin ders and annuls the faith of Christ.” But while the reader humbly follows the lead of thi “Meditation,” he is suddenly turned to the right about. It is necessary, after all, to have faith in Christ. “Christ is the blessed certainty that God is what we wish Him ta be.” “To love Christ—in himself child, wo man, and man—is to dispart the clouds, aud let us into the inner glory.” “What revelation the life of Christ is to such an one! Where such an one loves Christ what a divine transfig uration!” It can hardly be said that one can love Christ, or call him "Master,” or tmst to his revelation, without faith in him: and yet faith in Christ is “ very little!” Theso meditations purport to be “on the es sence of Christianity.” Only one of the six chapters treats of that subject; but in the chap ters on “Ihe Real Christ” we may expect Dr. Collier to tell us what he thinks is the real Christ. And he does: “I know nothing what ever of the supernatural. We find Christ just where our devotion and our faith should con sent to leave him, in the plane of nature and humanity.” He is, so far as we know, the fin' est flower of humanity; its son—its best son’ and its best beloved son.” So, then, our author is a humanitarian! But no! “Christ is God speaking or personally com municating himself to man.” “Christ is God made flesh; that is, Chriit is God become a person!” “Christ is God known personally.’’ “Tbe real ChriBt is the law of the conscience made flesh; this law is the ideal God, and His will; then,“God manifest in the flesh, isCbrist.” Truly onr author is faithful to his repudia tion of reasoning processes, though be does not wholly ignore the forms there of. Here for example is something like a formal exposition of doctrine:—“There is a beautiful and spiritual sense, if withal some what mystical, in which the mediative Christ is a God manifested as mao, and a man manifest ed as God.” That is the doctrine, now for the elucidation:—“We know what life is, because we know what a man is'or a flower is. When the abstract word ‘life’ is used, we know what is meant, because we think of life in mao, or life in a flower, or the life in something; we think of eye or limb in activity, we think of root or branch,” So far, so good. Now then:— <‘God is'spirit, or God is life; we think of spirit and life as active in Christ; so in this way .Christ is God, known personally.” It must be plainly said that tbe pleasing ex pectations aroused by the title of this little work and by the reputation of its author, are in no way fulfilled. There is no compensation in the work to balance or outweigh the defects now illustrated; no especial merit in the direc tion of sentiment. Nor have all the defects of the work been mentioned. Very frequently, if not altogether, the author seems more intent on speaking than on saying anything; as where he says with promising gravity: “That which is intellectually unknown in God, is in tellectually unknown to man.” “Time is like space; there is so much of it, that for only a little section can we find names, such as day. week, month, year, century, and so on; as we say earth, moop, sun, and when we get through mlr lief O 1 rn<»<1 rr cr\ Irvrtrr fnv tlin <nnmn*n ilia rest is nameless.” “Man emphasizes eternity, just as eternity emphasizes man; he dwells in the future just as the future dwells in him.” There are many such passages, in which the writer has a wise appearance of saying some thing, hut nothing is said. Let the following be noticed, grammar and all:—“That which was personal to himself Jesus made nniversal to humanity. Ho saw the race in himself rather than himself in the race. He became iu himself the standard of humanity, not hu mauity the standard of himself. This is all the meaning there is iu the miraculous birth of Christ.” We have endeavored to deal justly with this book of Dr. Collier’s, and have let it speak for itself. It will not increase the author’s reputa tion. We may properly add, however, that the Liberal Christian commends the work very Uglily. 0. W. B. The Sylvan Teak. The Unknown Rivek. By Philip Gilbert Hamcrton; author of The Intellect ual Life, Etchers and Etchings, etc. Boston: Roberts Brothers. For sale by Loring, Short & Harmon. Such a work as this of Mr. Hamerton is a re freshing oasis in the dry desert of multitudin ous wind blown words, too much the literary fashion of our day. He has—combined with the eye and hand of the artist—manly strength, a tine instinct which is feminine, and delicacy, purity and warmth of thought which color the rhythmic outlines of his sentences as a dame. His prose is a model of its kind; with no attempt to strain the processes of verse by adapting them too literally to purposes of prose, he loses nothing of the perfume of poetry and the essence and spirit of fancy. His pro found and wholly practical studies cf etching in especial and art in general, must have taught him much of this skill of selection and adaptation of means. Etching, more than any other department of pictorial art, requires at ouco the greatest unconventionality of spirit with peculiar limitations of expression. It is unfettered, hut veiled. The etcher must Dote a striking point and express it by a symbol, a touch which must carry conviction by a switt force of spirit, rather than actual representa tion. Among many complex lines and shades must be chosen the salient few. The Sylvan Year is a series of landscape studies of the same lovely scene, imder the changing influ ences of the months—the autumn that turns to gold the passionate blossoming of the summer, the winter that whitens, the spring that re news. The figures of Baoul Dubois, of his little sou, of the braconnier, are the figures of the landscape painter, introduced to intensify the meaning of nature by its relations to man. The exquisite sensitiveness to every impression of form and color in cloud or wayside weed; to the song of the nightingale in the dara—the impulse and passion of whose music and whose consciousness and delight of the artist, Mr. Hamerton notes finely—the wealth of thought, of allusion, of poetry that he brings to his work, can be enjoyed, not described; and noth ing but reading, word for word, cau give an idea of the beauty, richness and suggestiveness of the volume. Mr. Hamerton sees the artistic meaning of the commonest things—the deso late droop and decay of the mullein-stalk in the chill of late November; to him the plough share in the field is bright beyond the blade in battle, and he calls Virgil to witness to its splendor—“a polish not due to any intentional scheming about effect, but simply a proof of labor, like that noble polish which comes of itself upon the laborious human mind when it has toiled in the intellectu al fields,” says Mr. Hamerton. Nothing could be more tender in imagination, mote clearly drawn in soft, sad shades of mono chrome, than the purely poetical chapter in which he speaks of the place in art that is filled by water-reeds, a wan, dim place such as they have between earth and water. Nothing could be more dainty again than his paragraph on Chaucer’s love of —“These flonres white and rede Soch that men callen daises in our town.” To read The Sylvan Year is to see the earth anew, aright. It is to see it with an artist’s sight, by the light that poets have caught from it Mr. Hamerton’s special training, as well as his extended and elegant learning, and most fortunate natural gifts, have fitted him peculiarly for the translation, by pictured speech or written sketch, of nature to his readers. lu ibe unknown Kiver is to be recognized more entirely the author himself; it is the nar rative ol an “Etcher’s Voyage of Discovery,’’ and beside the qualities already noted in the first of the two books which form this volume, it has a genial brightness, and fresh, boylike love of adventure, a dash and force that har monize perfectly with its refinement. It is indeed impossible to do justice to the tranquil charm, the contained passion of the volume, even were there space for long ex tracts from it in the limits of a journalistic bock review; or as Mr. Hamerton himself writes of others’ works that which is peculiarly applicable to his own: “I should like very much to quote some of the best modern works in writing, bnt it is almost impossible to do so without invading one’s own space too much; such quotations are like the young cuckoo in a small bird’s nest; they grow and grow till they push the native progeny aside.” Ishmaei,; or IM the Depths. By Mrs. Emma D. E. N. Southwortb. PI iladelphia: T. B. Peter son & Brothers. This novel was originally published in the New York Ledger, and was then entitled “Self Made; Or* Out of the Depths.” Why the pro cess of re-pnblication should send the hero back into the depths again is not explained. The novel is regarded by the author and her pub lishers as the best work she has ever writ ten. In the preface Mrs. Southworth says: “This story, in book form, has beep called for, by thousands during several years past, but the author has reserved it, until 1876, as her contri bution to the Centennial; not only because she considers it to be her very best work, but be cause it is peculiarly a National Novel, being founded on the life and career of one of the noblest of our countrymen, who really lived, suffered, toiled, and triumphed in this land; one whose Inspirations of wisdom and good ness were drawn from the examples of the he roic warriors and statesmen of the revolution, and who having, by his own energy, risen from the deepest obscurity to the highest fame, be came in himself an illustration of the elevat luuuouwa ui uui Atcpuuiiuaii xuauiiUUUUB. ‘In the Depths,’ he was born indeed—In the very depths of poverty, misery and humiliation. But through Heaven’s blessing on his aspira tions and endeavors, he raised himself to the summit of fame. He was good as well as great. His goodness won the love of all who knew him intimately. His greatness gained the homage of the world. He became, in a word one of the brightest stars in Columbia’s dia dem of light. His identity will be recognized by those who were familiar with his earl y per sonal history; but for obvious reasons, his rea' name must be veiled under a fictitious one here. His life is a guiding star to the youth ot every land, to show them that there is no depth of human misery from whieh they may not, by virtue, energy, and perseverance, rise to earth ly honors, as well as to eternal glory.” It is published in a large duodecimo volume of over seven hundred pages, with a portrait of Mrs. Southworth, engraved on steel, from a photo graph taken of her on March 22d, 1876, with her autograph under it. It is bound in moroc co cloth, gilt back, price $1.75. Revolution art Times: Sketches of our coun try. Its People and Their Ways, One Hundred Years Ago. By Edward Abbott. Boston: Rob erts Brothers. For salo by Boring, Short & Har mon. t Within the compass of two hundred pages Mr. Abbott has sketched broadly and intelli gently the condition and habits of American people two hundred years ago. He says he has “but filled a note book with rough and scat tered memoranda,” but in this statement he undervalues his work, for he has succeeded in giving an accurate, pleasing and well propor tioned picture of the revolutionary times and of the every-day life of the people then. Those matters which grave historians think too tri fling for notice, (though they might learn better from Macaulay had they their woik to do over again) but in which most readers take a peculiar interest, are fully treated of.' We are given, for example, contrasted sketches of the cities and villages, are told of the ways of public communication and have a journey from Providence to Charleston, epitomized from the narrative of Glkanah Watson de scribed for us, learn of the dress and fashions, the amusements, the social comforts and troubles of our ancestors. How marriages and funerals were conducted, what people eat and -1. „ A *1. 1 » ...k A A SkA. .AA,1 kA«. tl.AW " t-- - --—--1---j worked their (arms, and what manufactures they started, and a host of incidents of com mon life which give a realistic view of manners and customs, are set down in this volume and entertainingly described. In an appendix is given a list of rare worksjrelsting to the revo lutionary life and traits. The book is one “to be dropped in your pocket on your way to the centennial,” or to be read at home with much profit and inter est. Life and Letters of Lord Macaulay. By liis nephew, G. Otto Trevelyan. In two volumes. Vol. II. New York: Harper & Brothers. For sale by Loriug, Short &H armon. The second and concluding volume of Macau lay’s life extends from his return from India in 1838 to his death in 1859. On bis way home from Hindoostan he lingered in Rome and Par is for some weeks, seeing many notable people and interesting things and gossiping freely about them. On getting back to England he was sent to Parliament from Edinburgh, ami not long after entered the cabinet. Fortunate ly for literature the Whigs suffered a defeat, be lost his seat and then betook himself to the composition of that history of which be had dreamed so long. Thereafter we hear but little of him in political life. The second volume of the life pursues the same plan as the first,'even more enter taining, for it treats of Macaulay when he had reached the full measure.of his splendid pow ers and was engaged upon that great work by which he will be chiefly known to future geu eratious. The impression of Macaulay giveu in the first volume that be was a man not only of remarkable parts but of a lovable disposition, that he was a genial companion, an affection ate and self-sacrificing son and brother, and a good-doer to his fellows as well as a great au thor and pure statesuiao, is confirmed in this, and one rises from its perusal with a hearty ad miration and respect for him. The com plete work is the most interesting biography published of late on the other side of the wa ter, and should find a place on the book-shelves of every reader of taste and sensibility. Magazine Notices. Mark Twain opens the June Atlantic Monthly with a laughter-stirring jeu tl’esprit, The Recent Carnival of Crime in Connecticut'; but readers will not pause long before passing on to Mr. Whittier’s Centennial Hymn, which is printed in this number with the music by J, K. Paine, expressly composed for it, and per formed at the opening of the Centennial. This music is not for sale anywhere else, and the publishers thus offer as part of the maga zine something which will be of great value to all who are interested in the Centennial. Henry James, Jr., begins a new novel, The American, very spirited andipromising, and is followed by T. B. Aldrich, with some exquis ite verses called Unsung. Professor Felix Adler gives us A Prophet of the People. The State and the Railroads furnish Cbarle 1-rancis Adam’s, Jr., with matter for an inter esting and lucid talk about an important public question, and not the least attraction of the magazine is W. D. Howells’ paper on A Shaker Village, which comes next, and is one of the best presentations of Shaker life yet furnished within the same space. Mrs. Kem ble’s Old Woman’s Oossip is unusnally enter taining, and brings us to the beginning of her career on the'stage. There is also an agreeable literary essay by Caroline D. Swan, on The Quaintness of [the Judicious Hooker, and Miss 8. F. Hopkins con tributes a grimly humorous and excel lently written sketch, In the Qauntic Stage. Besides Messrs. Whittier and Aldrich, Edgar Fawcett, Adelaide Ailing, and others :contrib ute poems. The whole number, taken with the editorial discussions of literature, art and mu sic, reaches a very high mark of brilliant and solid excellence.
