It was necessary for the Son to disappear as an outward authority, in order he might reappear as an inward principle of life. Our salvation is no longer God manifested in Christ without us, but as a "Christ within us, the hope of glory."—F. W. Jtobertson. Money-making is a*small a human soul to engage in, because a man whose only busines is to get money is a crushing force in society. Napoleon is quoted as saying, "It is the nature of giants to squeeze;" and it is the nature of a man who lives only to make money to squeeze. He becomes in society, instead of a comforting, solacing, soothing, upbuilding force, a crushing, grinding power ; and this, perhaps, is what the Apostle Paul means, when he says, "The lore of money is a root of all evil." Hint to hospital Christians: An hour by the bedside of some poor sufferer in a garret—another hour or two in a mission- school every week—a pull at temperance work, or some other uphill enterprise of benevolence, will give tone to your piety, and muscle to your prayers. Such Christians as Moody, and Burnell, and Henry Jessup, and Sarah Smiley never know what spiritual dyspepsia is. You.are dying of close confinement and laziness. The only cure lor indolence is work; the only cure of selfishness is sacrifice; the only cure for unbelief is to shake off the ague of doubt by doing Christ's bidding; the only cure for tf-midity is to plunge into some dreaded duty before thechill comes on. When you have had a few months of , healthful Bible* diet and Bible-duty you will feel a glow. t>f delight in your'whole soul. Already your Master is calling to you, "Arise, take up thy bed and walk." Among the shining periods in our Lord's Sermon on the Mount, "Blessed are the peacemakers" holds a prominent place. Many without a true apprehension of Christ pronounce this benediction in eyery way correct; recognizing peace-making as a noble occupation, calculated to produce most beneficial and satisfying results. But this view hardly comprehends the subject, and indicates the old mistake which, for ages haa GIVE HIM A CHANGE. The testimony of J. M. Dean in the Flipper trial, superadded with the statements of Col. Grierson and Maj. McLaughlin, of the 10th cavalry (Flipper's regiment), will go very far toward awakening sympathy for the colored lieutenant, and perhaps in reversing public sentiment as to the character of his oftense. Dean was Flipper's friend, however, and it appears not only advised with him, but helped to take up the subscription to pay the deficit in his accounts. Sitice Dean was not cross-examined it would seem that the judge advocate did not discredit the witness. The certificates of good character could only be accepted for what they were worth, and in these times every one knows that is very little. Nevertheless, it is apparent that Flipper's ^conduct may be accounted for easily enough without suspecting theft or "legitimate embezzlement." The colonel of his regiment says "the present difficulty is the result of carelessness," and he further affirms that "the officers of his regiment would be glad to see him back again." Though these statements were not made under oath, they were made on the honor of an officer of the United States army, and must be received as valuable testimony It is not denied that Flipper was short in his accounts, or that he endeavored to extricate himself when accused by disingenuous methods; but be may have fallen behind, as his colonel states, by carelessness, and his subsequent crooked way may have been actuated by an honest purpose to gain time to raise the money to balance his debits and credits without being subjected to the humiliation of being suspected of either wrong-doing or carelessness. A celebrated archbishop at Cincinnati fell behind several millions with his church by carelessness, though he never could and never did explain or account for the deficiency, he was not suspected of theft. To say the least, the testimony raises serious doubt as to Flipper's guilt, and his color is no reason why he should not have the benefit of the doubt. Nor can race consideration justify any proceedings that are not sustained by satisfactory proof and a just administration of the army regulations and the law of land.—Galveston News. OUR FORESTS. HOW TO PE0TE0X THEM. . No subject is of graver import to the ~ * future of this continent than the protection and preservation of its forests. Sir - ...' Samuel Baker, who recently returned i from a hunting expedition in the Big ; Horn country of Wyoming, said that the extensive and wanton burning of the Rocky mountain woodlands was an evil of such magnitude that he was astonish- gpgj • ed to find hundreds of square miles in a blaze, carrying on the march of devastation until quenched by a heavy rainfall, or arrested by the high mountain tops above timber line. The reckless miners and thoughtless hunters, traders, and travelers, who are responsible for this prodigious waste, bid fair to convert fertile valleys and copious river sources into arid deserts and dried up gulches. It is a well-known law that forest de-struction of a wholesale character diminishes rainfall, and eventually banishes it altogether. Herce the anxiety of the more enlightened governments to save their native and primeval timber , , - intact, knowing that its reproduction , and preservation are the life's blood of . j the country itseir. What will be the ultimate result, judging from evidences \ ^ of the past? Our rich Western regions >fg will become gradually parched; brooks and streams will die out forever; im-portant feeders of a great river system will become extinct, lowering the level -.: :;f5 perhaps of such a channel as the Missis- r\fa sippi river,and one word will be written . across the face of the country—desola- ,/J| tion. asfieis.Metti t studyittg Hiip N :A KIHG'S VIEWS* •-RT Consid erable sensation has been caused in Paris by a remarkable volume which has just appeared under the title, "Mis-lelle dea Souveraina. par l'un by the le writer takes Jlis That this is no exaggeration may be understood from the fact that it was recently reported at the annual meeting of the geographical society of Vienna by Councilor Wex, that the Volga is decreasing in volume, owing to the destruction of wood in its valley, so as to materially affect the level of the Caspian sea and the Sea of Aral. It is apparent, therefore, that the most vital question in connection with that wonderful domain beyond the Rocky mountains is the preservation of its forests. As long as it is possible for one adventurer to build his camp fire in the wood and leave it to the mercy of the winds, thus laying waste to what would be a respectable county in our commonwealth, this destruction and consequent physical disorder will go on.

The fact that Christianity is the only real peacemaker is one reason for its gradual but steady growth in all directions. Other religions are generally wholly dependent on physical force as a motive power. -Nations are converted by the sword, subjected people accepting their conqueror's religion rather than suffer death. Our missions, on the other had, ignore corporeal power, and move onward beneath the snowy flag of spiritual concord, proclaiming Christ as prince of peace, and His kingdom a kingdom of love. If that citizen is thought to have made a valuable contribution to the strength of his country who gives her a group of healthy, stalwart, courageous sons for her armies—so that the civil law gave peculiar immunities to him who was the father of three sons—how, much more shall he be reckoned a /benefactor who leaves behind him a whole family of children trained to wisdom and exercised in godliness! Increase of population may be only the increase oi idleness, ignorance, vice, pauperism, and disease; but increase nf trained Christians—of sons like young olive-trees, oi daughters like palace-marbles—will be the security of good institutions. Hence, the very noblest field of every patriotic and Christian exertion is that which is nearest— the home-field. Though you dwell in a cottage, a garret, or a cellar, yet, if you have around you sons and daughters, you have the materials for a structure which shall be going up when you shall have departed, You have the soldiers for that great battle which is yet to be fought. Never complain of inability to do good if you have children whom you may benefit. You perhaps too much limit your hopesas to what may be their capacity of mind and heart. They may rise immensely above anything you have yourself reached, and all that your sanguine heart has dreamed. There is nothing we can givfe to Christ which is so precious as our children.—Dr. J. W. Alexander. SENSIBLE GOVERNOR. On the 1st ol January next the letting of convict labor J>y contract in (hg penal institutions of California will cease.^ When Gov. Perkins assumed the duties" mi the executive office he applied himself to the task of discovering or suggesting proper employment for the convicts which should not wojrk an injustice on the free-skilled laborer. His conclusions were embodied in a message to the Legislature, and the latter at once-made appropriations for the erection of buildings' and the purchase of machinery necessary to carry out the new plans. The buildings are new up and the machinery in, and on Jan. l.the warden ot San Quentin will put 1600 prisoners, lo work on the manufacture of jute bagging and byga, of which there is an immense consumption on the Pacific coast. Millions ot these bags aie imported annually, and only an insignificant number are-manufactured, principally by Chinee labor. Thus* under Gov. Perkins' plan, this Industry in San Quentin will com-- pete with no free white labor, while it will supply an article in constant and large demand, 7 some ojte o his supremacy in this military and diplomatic competition, when his ephemeral triumpfi'pro^^^c^?tJy|md4Mtroctiy:e as his defeat, • . t ^ The king then proseeds to deal with the subject of revolution, which saps the foundation of society, while permanent war is the normal condition in the upper regions of the edifice of which kings are "but the principal tenants, and those whose position exposes them to the greatest risks." He thinks kings cannot do better, so long as the existing relations between sovereigns continue, than to oppose materialism and the destructive tendencies, so long as the peoples have sense enough to trust kings to pro-teci them against the forces of revolution ; but he candidly admits that peoples may cease to have that good sense. The author concludes that' if kings do not turn over a new leaf, and deal with each other in the same way as honest members of the sajne community, a war of races must follow, which will culminate in an avenging invasion of Asiatic tribes. He is very severe on Prince Bis-march, and denounces the war of 1870, and the treaty Which followed it, as an immoral iniquity, and describes his highness and his system as inimical both to kings and peoples. r„ .PROGRESSIVE TEACHERS WASTED. The superintendents of the public schools of this country have a vast responsibility on their shoulders. It rests maiinly with them in their selection of teachers to answer the question for all time to come. Are we to have a nation of dependent imitators, or a strong-minded, original, creative and wealth-developing people? The huge machinery of public schools now in operation throughout the country offers the poorest youth the opportunity of acquiring at least an elementary education, and this opportunity entails a not inconsiderable burden on the tax-payer. Money is now being furnished to operate these schools, teachers are at work, and children are in attendance; but is the youth of the country being educated P The founder of the Prusstan sysfTem of public schools said: "Tell me what you put in your schools, and I will tell what will be in your natioiu" What iaputin the school must come out of the brain, life and heart of the teaqhers. Select mere imitators for teachers—men and women whose most strenuous"tefiorts are directed to drilling the pupil to thinkin the same channel in which they think, and to learn the same things they leurn-ed— and the school rooins becousff stag-nant pools in which no pupil is allowed to trace for himself a ripple of clear sparkling thought, and he is first who has at his tongue's end the greatest,nm& of rules and rhythms pontted by ii>te. Such a system tends to crush out all originality and innate piower of the individual, and to leave him a dependent mental dwarf—deluded by the belief' that he knows when he does not know, and in no degree qualified for tht checkered vicissitudes of an active lite- The average life, of a circus aetor is* fmty years.- This «vertg6^*^Mreus joke is two hundred and fifty years. The latter is "worktfl almost to death^every year. • - ^ urn an especial interest in' eip1 in this branch. Particularly is this true, ^ curiously enough, in countries where is the largest proportion of woodland, as in Russia, Sweden, Germany, and Austria. The lowest occurs in Great Britain, Denmark, Spain and Holland. Over forty-two per cent, of the acreage of Russia is forest, while Britain has a little over three per cent. In Germany more attention is given to arboriculture than in any other western power. America, of all quarters of the world, is the most thickly wooded with the primeval forest, and was of vast extent and contained a great variety of species, covering, with insignificant exceptions, all that portion of our continent which was occupied by our colonists; but now it is doubtful, according to the very best authorities, if any state of the Union, save Oregon, has more woodland that it ought permanently to preserve. Our Eastern and Middle states were at one time dense forests, while now Pennsylvania alone has preserved her timber. ^The other states are compelled to send to Canada and the West to supply their market. Our government, however, began early to perceive the danger of indiscriminate forest felling. In 1817, and again in 1831, statutes were passed to restrict spoliation. Yet it may be judged that the woodland is largely suffering when we remember that there are over 30,000 saw-mills in the United States, nearly all doing a flourishing business. In some states special legislation provides for adequate protection, and in California^ state forester has been appointed. The devastation in that state has been enormous, and in Texas also, where the supply of trees is totally inadequate, and where destructive tornadoes prevail, together with extensive fires. In view of the facts stated, it is plain that intelligent and prompt action should be taken by Congress to prevent furthei^spoliation. The absolute necessity is apparent in the fa'ce of the not encouraging fact that already over two-fifths of the entire area of the United States is so arid that even artificial irrigation cannot now redeem it; indeed, west of the Mississippi, owing to forest fires largely, one-sixth ol the entire territory alone is susceptible to cultivation. In Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Id$ho„ and Montana, not one-fifteenth of the area can ever be rendered available, and it is doubtful, without expedients now "unknown. if any of these territories will support more than 300,000 people at a time; and in Wyoming not over 5000 square miles in the 100,000 square i|iles of area can be termed arable land. T The question then arises: Whatiswie g best method of achieving practical re- |5; suits for the preservation ot ^W^v** physical advantages we pds»(M«y^«ottr national domain, and tt0 : greater magnitude can be addressed to the 47th gongress. The Russian method of serving tea is a pleasant variation from the usual way.
