He gave us a capital diecoure. with never a icrap of a note, and much eloquence, on the LOl.D'8 "Sudden Coming to Hid Temple," spoken of In the laatcksp -r ol Malaehl. He avoided the central glorioue advent topfc of the scripture-t- he of our Havlor (5od and King, to take the helm of state; put down the great usurper; nod purge Hi droaaencrualed Church, In the final consummation. But he spoke , beautifully upon the varied epiritural com ings to each one rehearsals, all, of that great final advent and made eveijiiilng verv practical and personal. It i Iodic nine I hare heard no stirring a preacher an Htabop Thompson. In person he ia not unlike Bishop Dudley, a I looked at him from the back of the church; though really cuwock and aurplice reduce any partiw of average stoulne to identical figure, when duly robed.

I know one of them when I meet him. No amount of lawn and trim minga can tuke or mar a preacher. ..Vasei-tu- r nm jU Tbe renident curate is a liar. Mr. Marka and I beard him the Sunday before, a well on Tbankegiving day. In bia Sunday' he gave me a thought that thrilled me, and which, I truat, may abide, in pow- er. In my We henceforth. HI tbeme was Elijah the Tiahbite, under the juniper in that hour of inpreme dejection, when he prayed to die that he might gel away from present trouble. The preacher ro said: "Elijah forgot that he waa partner and co worker with God; and bad no more right to lay down thia partnership work than Gad had, because every thing did not go to auit Hi mind." I nerer, exact ly, saw it in thia light before, though, ol course, tbe co partnership aud ehip were familiar in thought. Yet how gloriously true it il How infinitely certain it is that God will not grow weary nor discouraged, though so often baffled; but will carry on with persevering LOVE what I!a hae set Hi hand of power to do. I don't think Brother Mark saw just where hie gospel led to; and when I afterward thank ed him for being the channel of the divine teaching and giving me such a delicious bonnt boutht, he seetued rather surprised that I set such store by it. But it waa meal to me, that he knew not of, and thought lure me on eagle wing to the certain consummation of that glorious fact, that our God will never cease to work while sin and misery mar the glorious empire over which He claim absolute authority, and in which no rival can be tolerated, in perpetuity. Far Um ao hideous a monster ae death. If there were n second death for which no re urrection were provided, how far short would the "free gift" fall of the "condem nation." But that can neyer be, a Paul shows us in the 5th of Rjiutns "Death ol death, and bell's destruction" alone can fill the bill, a even one of our own orthodox poet ha eung not knowing tbe full mean ing of hi words, nor whither tbey reached. A second and third point made by Brother Mark were also good and practical, but lew glorious than the first. The second was thia: "Elijah forgot that there might unknown to him, but be many other known to God, who were, after a fashion, faithful to the Truth. We imagine tbe real Temple of 'Truth rest upon our shoulder alone, if we have been used signally of God, This is pure conceit and Dear Interior: -- Lt Mia., Dec. 1. 17. needs correction. We will always be only one of many." A third lenon was this "Klilah lowered himself spiritually when he began to criticise other. When he querulously assailed his people, hi own backslidden state wa assured. A fault finding spirit is a certain symptom of decline." Ho spake the preacher. Ab, me! l- J ! tle. tr; Jhmine dmqe him.' A capital sermon, tho' imply and plainly spoken, and little con finement to note. I think "freedom of utterance" is a contrastive mark of Southern preachers, that ia not so often met with North, where piper sermonizing is more the rule. Another thing I shall gratefully remember in connection with thia Aberdeen print of tbe I. E: In tbe responses, be gave the congregation time, fairly, to "say their say," without being anubhed and cut short. Honor to thia exceptional man of God. How I dialike that 1'. E.! It is ao untrue. A I heard Father Gavaxzi say, in an Italian bunt of bad Eogliab, in Philadelphia, 35 year ago: "Protestant! it i too lea for mt!" Toe name haa no signification a a general proteM against evil. It "goe without saying" that Christiana all do that, and surely it ia not a (landing protest against the varioui sect. Tnat would be too bdioua. It can only mean anything, a a historical rebuke of tbe Papacy. Ilia borrowed from tbe Continent of Europe, where tbey did protest. But the Cburrh England, from whom we spring, neyer did that. She drove the Pope "bag and baggage" out of EnglandChurch and State; and it wa the poor ousted Pope who did all tbe protesting; and doe, to thl day. What a historical blunder P. E. is! I hop tbe good Father will some day alter it. I shall not make anybody's hair rise by suggesting a substitute, a I easily could. But P. E couldn't be wonted, if the brethren tried, "all of which ia respectfully submitted," by one, who being a member of the "Mother Cburcb," can appropriately lecture tbe erring children. The cold snap turned oil', after two days of it, into a lovely, bracing, seasonable spell, with cloudle) blue sky by day and radiant full moon at eight. I see br my yesterday's paper that our dear old Dr. Parker, of the Holborn City Temple, London, ha not escaped the clutches of that "money devil" that certainly in'est, if he doe not preside oyer Plymouth Church, Brooklyn, juit now. Is it the remaining "bile" within me that i stirred, or i it "righteous indignation?" Lt us hope the latter. At any rite some-thin- g within me fairly sickens at the pitiful exhibition of meanness presented by a prominent officer, in a historic church, insulting his old pastor's bosom friend by be grudging him his expenses paid, in crossing the Atlantic, to eulogize the greatest preacher of the century. To stint a guest from across the water, too! Cheese-parinwith one who eit at our table! It is enough at once to make Mr. Beecher turn in hi graye, and the blood of eyery hospitable American boil in hi veins. The honor of this Rraat country, bartered by this dreadful deacon of the Plymouth Church for $700! This i the crowning littleness of thecentury. I know nothing more dis. graceful since Arnold bargained for West Poin'. Therel "bile" or "righteous indig nation," I feel better for saving this little say, in repudiation of this treatment of a stringer, who ha trusted our hospitality. I do not protest. "Pro testant is too less for me." Scornful repudiation; spewing thia Plymouth deacon out of mouth, alone can satisfy any honest man. And I am not going to qualify tbi) by saying ''Dr. Parker may have done wrong." I don't beliere it. I trust his telegram from Chicago. It ia simply enough to obliterate tbe deacon. But it will not. The "money devil" will see that he ha a following in Plymouth, if I know thia generation; and I think I do. And all this shame on u will go back to tbe mother country as a specimen of ''Yankee meanness;" "cute ness;" and do move to make another recoil between sundered kindred, who to draw nearer in bonds of fellowship g than a war would. Hard knocks and mutual respect may go together, but meaone dig a chaam that honor cannot cross. And England's this is the way America treat next to greatest preacher. 0 temporal 0 more.'

TREASURY THE ONE SUBJECT. lie) Tloldi Congress Responsible for the Imtbi Surplus, anil Sys That lly Next Jane The. Wilt lis Onf Hundred and Tatty Million llntlnr In the Treasury. States: To tli Congress of tlio United r n if You Are confronted at the threshold of your legislative duties, with n condition of tho National finances which imperatively demands immediate and careful consideration. The amount of money annually exacted through the operation of present law, from the industries and necessities of the peopb largely exceeds the sums necessary to mast the expenses of the government. "When we consider that tho theory of our institutions guarantees to every citizen the full enjoyment of the fruits of his industry and enterprise, with only tuch deduction as may be his share towards the careful and economical maiutenanco of the government whioh protects him, it U plain that the exaction of more than this U indispensable extortion and a culpable betrayal of American fairnosi and justice. This wrong inflicted upon those who bear the burden of National taxation, like other wrongs, multiplies a brood of evil consequences. The public treasury which should only exist as a conduit, conveying the people's tribute to its legitimate objects of expenditure, becomes a hoarding place for money needlessly withdrawn from trade and the people's ue, thus crippling our National energies, suspending our country's development, preventing investment in productive enterprise, threatening financial disturbof public ance, and inviting schemes plunder. This condition of our treasury is not Altogether new; and it has more than once of late been submitted to the people's ho alone representatives in the congress, can apply a remedy. And yet the situation still continues, with aggravated incidents, more than ever, presaging financial condisaster. It will vulsion and not do to neglect this situation, because its dangers are not now palpably imminent and apparent. They exist none the lest certainly, and await the unforeseen and unexpected occasion when suddenly they will be precipitated upon us. On tbe Ikith day of June, J8S5, the excess of revenue over public exendituros after complying with the annual requirement of the sinking 'fund act, wai l7,.W.7:.t4; during the year ended June 3t), lStS, such excess amounted to W, i5,545.20; and during the year ended June 30, 1&J7, it reached the sum of 55,567,W9.5-4- . The annual contributions to the sinking fund during the three yean above specified amounting in the aggregate to tltfi.U.Vi,-JKU.and deducted from the surplus as titated, were made by calling in for that t. bonds purpose outstanding of the government. During the six mouths prior to June S), 1M7, the surplus revenue Lad grown so largely repeated accumulations, and it was feared the withdrawal of this great sum needed by the people would so affect tbe business of tho country that the sum of S70,H64, 100 of suoh surplus was applied to the payment of the principal and t. bonds still interest of the outstanding and which were then payable at the option of the government. Tbe precarious1 condition of financial affairs among the people still needing relief, immediately after the 30th day of June, 1&37, the ret. bonds then mainder of the outstanding, amounting with principal and interest to the sum of $18,877,500 were called in and applied to the sinking fund contributions or the current fiscal year. Notwithstanding these operations of the treasury department representatives of dis: tress in business circles not only continued, but Increased, and absolute peril seemed at hand. In these circumstances the contribution to the sinking fund for the current fiscal year was at once completed by tbe expenditure of $J7,GSs,:iS3,55 in the purchase bonds, not yet due, of government per cent interest, bearing 4 and 4 the premium paid thereou averaging about 24 per cent, for the former, and 8 per cent, for the latter. In addition to this the interest accruing during the current year upon the outstanding bonded indebtedness of the government was to some extent anticipated, and banks selected as depositories of public money were permitted to somewhat iucVeaio their dewide-spreW three-per-centhree-per-centhree-per-cen'J tween the operations of the government treasury and the business of the country, and too extensive a commingling of their money, thus fostering an unnatural reliance in private business upon public funds. If this scheme should be adopted it should only be done as a temporary expedient to meet an urgent necessity. legislative and executive effort should generally be in the opposite direction, and should have a ten dency to divorce as much and as fast as can safely be done, the treasury department from private enterprise. Of course it is not expected that unnecessary and extravagant appropriations will be made for the purpose of avoiding the acoummulation of any excess of revenue. Such expenditure, besides the demoralization of all just conceptions of public duty which it entails, stimulates a habit of reckless improvident not in the least consistent with th mission of our people on the high and beneficent I shall deem purposes of our government. it my duty to thus bring to the knowledge of my countrymen, as well as to the Attention of their representatives charged with the responsibility of legislative relief, the gravity of our financial situation. The failure of tbe congress heretofore to provide against tbe dangers whiob it was quite evident the very nature of the difilculty must necessarily produce, caused a condition of financial distress and Apprehension sluoe your lut adjournment, which taxed to tbe utmost all ths authority and expedient within executive control; and these appear now to be exhausted. If disaster results from the continued inaction of congress, tbe rospoiulblllty must rent where it belongs. consists in the supposition that the secretary of the treasury may enter the market and purchase the bonds of the government not yet due at a rate of premium to be agreed upon. Tho only provision of law from which suoh a power could be derived is found in an appropriation bill passod a number of years ago; and it is subject to the suspicion that it was intended as temporary and limited in Its application instead of conferring a continuing discretion and No condition ought to exist authority. which would justify the grant of power to a single ofllcial, upon his Judgment of iu necessity, to withhold from or release to the business of the people, in an unusual manner, money held in the treasury and thus affect at his will the financial situation of the country; and if It is deemed wise to lodge in the secretary of the treasury the authority in the present juncture to purchase bonds, it should be plainly vested and provided as far as posstblo with such checks and limitations as will define this otlloial's right and discretion and at tbe same time relievo him from undue responsibility. Iu considering the question of purchasing bonds as a means of restoring circulation tho surplus niouey accumulating in the treasury, it should be borne in mind that premiums must of course be paid upon such purchase, that there may be a large part of these bonds held as investment which cannot be pur chased at any price. And that combinations among holders who are willing to sell, may unreasonably enchauce the cost of such bonds to the government. It has been suggested thot the present bonded debt might be refunded at a loss rate of interest, and the difference between the old And new security paid in cash, thus finding use for the surplus in the treasury. The success of this plan, it is apparent, must depend upon the volition of tho holders of the present bonds; and it is not entirely certain that the inducement which must be offered them would result in more financial benefit to tho govemtneut than the purchase of the bonds, while the latter proposition would reduce the principle of the debt by actual payment instead of extending it. The proposition to deposit the monoy held by the government in banks throughout tbe country for use by the people, Is, it seems to me, exceedingly objectionable In principle, as establishing too closo a relationship be- posits. While the expedient thus employed to to the people tbe money lying idle in the treasury, served to avert immediate danger, our surplus revenues have continued to accumulate, the excess for the presont year amounting oil the istday of December to fW.'JW, 701. 1'J, and estimated to reach tbe sum of JMIi.lHXt.OiM) on the 30th of June next, at which date it is exacted that this sum, add! to prior accumulations, will swell the surplus in the treasury to JUO.OOVlOO. There seems to be no assurance thnt, with such a withdrawal from 114 of tne people's circulating medium, our buiinos community may not, in the near future, be subjected to the same distress it hich was quitn lately pro luce I from tho xanie cause, and while the functions of our National treasury should be few and simple, and while its best condition would be reached, I believe, by its entire disconnection with private business interests, yet, when, by a perversion of its purposes, it idly holds money uselessly subtracted from the channls of trade, there seems to be reason for the claim that some legitimate means should badevUed by the government to restore in an emergenoy, without waste or extravagance, such money to its place among the people. If such an einorgensy arises there now exists no clear and undoubted executive power of relief. Heretofore the redempt. bonds which were tion of payable at the option of tbe government, has afforded a means for the disbursement of the excess of our revenues; but tliee bonds have all been retired, and thore are no bonds outstanding the payment of which we have the right to insist upon. The contribution to the sinking fund, which furnished the occasion for expenditure iu the purchoso of bonds has been already made for the current year, so that there is no outlet in that direction. In the present state of legislation the only pretense of any existing exeoutivs powor to restore, at this time, any part of our surplus revenues to the people by its expenditure, three-per-cen- Though the situation thus far considered fraught with danger, which should be fully realized, and though it presents features of wrong to the people, as well as peril to the country. It U but a result grow, lng out of a perfectly palpable and apparent cause, constantly reproducing the same alarming circimstauces a congested National treasury and a depleted monetary condition in the business of tbe country. It need hardly be stated that while the present situation demands a remedy, we can only be saved from a like predicament In tb future, by the mreoval of Its cause. Our scheme of taxation by means of which thii needless surplus It taken from the public treasury, consists of a tariff or duty levied upon importlons from abroad and Internal taxes lived on tbe consumption of tobacco and spirituous and malt liquors. It must be conceded that none of the things subjected to Internal revenue taxaspeaking, necessaries, tion are, strictly there appears to be no just complaint ol this taxation by the consumers of tiiesc articles, and there seems to be nothing sc well able to bear the burden without hardship to any portion of the people. But our present tariff laws, the vicious, inequitable and illogical source of unnecessary taxa tion, ought to be nt once revised and amendixl. These laws as their primary and plain effect, raisit the price to consumers ol all articles imported ami subject to duty, by precisely the sum paid for such duties Thus the amount of the duty measures th tax paid by those who purchase for uh Many of the these imported articles. things, however, are rafsod or manufactured iu our owu country, and the duties now levied upon foreign goods and products are called protection to these home manufacturers, because they render It possible foi thovsof our people who are manufacturers to make these taxed articles and sail thom for a price equal to that demanded for the lmportel goods that have pail customs duty. tfo it happens that while comparatively s few use the Imparted articles millions ol of our people who use and never saw any ol the foreigu products, purchase ami u things of the same kind made in this coun try, and pay therefor nearly or quite th same price which the duty alls to tho im ported articles. Those who buy lmxrti pay the duty charged thereon into the public treasury, but tho great majority of out citizens who buy domestic articles of the same class, pay a sum at least approximate equal to this duty to the home manufacturer. This reference to the oimratlon of our tariff laws is not made by way ol Instruction, but in order that we may be constantly reminded of the manner in which they Impose a burden on tho-- who con Mime domestic products, as well as thos who consume Imported articles, anl thus create a tax upon all our people. It Is not proposed to entirely relieve the country of this taxation; It mutt be extensively continued as the source of the government's Income; and In a readjustment of our tariff the interests of American labor engaged in manafacture snould be carefully considered as well as the preservation of our manufacturers. It may be called protection, or by any other name, but relief from the hardships and dangers of our present tarill law should be devised with especial precu-tioagainst iiu'ioriling the existence of our manufacturing interests. Out this interest should not meau n condition, whioh without rejard to the public welfare or a National exigency, must always Insure the realization of immense profit Instead of moderately pro Is n paid upon a modsrats purchase, as a result of the tariff scheme, which, when he sold his wool seemed so profitable, an increase In price more than sufficient to sweep away All the tariff profit bo received uon th wool ho produced and sold. When the uumlter of farmers engaged In wool raising is compared with tho farmers In the country, and the small proKrt!on they bear to our population is considered; when it is made apparsut that In the case of entertained to a certain extant that there ex- a large part of those who own sheep, the ists an organized combination all along tho benefit of the present tariff on wool is line to maintain their advantage.

It is also stated that that competition among our domestic prothe increase iu the price of domestic manu- ducers sometimes has the effect of keeping factures resulting from the present tariff is tho price of their products below tho highest necessary iu order that higher wages may be limit allowed by suoh duty. But it is notorious that this competition is to often stranMild to our worklngmeu employed in manufactories, than are paid for what is called gled by combinations quite prevalent at this time and frequently called frusts which have the pauper labor of Europe. for the object their regulation of tlht supply All will acknowledge the force of an argument which Involve the welfare and liberal and price of commodities made and sold by The people oom.wnsatiou of our labor Is honorable in members of the combination. the eyes of overy American citizen, and as can hardly hope for any consideration in the It lies at the foundation of our development otMiratioti of these selfish schemes.

The simple aud plain duty which owe the people is to reduce taxation to the necessary exnses of an economical opens-tioof the government, and to restore to the business of tho country the money whioh wo hold Iu the treasury through the perversion of governmental powers. These things can and should lie done with safety to all our industries, without danger to the opportunity for remunerative labor whioh our wurklugmon need, and with benefit to them and all our poople, by cheapening their means of existonoe aud increasing the measuro of their comforts. the constitution provides that tho president shall, from time to time, give to the congress Information of the.tat of union. It has been the custom of the executive in compliance with this provision, to annually exhibit to the congress, at the opening of its session, the general condition of tbe country, and to detail, with some particularity the operations of the differont executive department. It would Ixi especially agreeable to follow this course at the present time, and to call attention to the valuable accomplishments of these departments during the last fiscal year. But I am so much impressed with the arnmouut Importance of the subjeot to which this communication has thus far been devoted, that I shall forego the addstlan of any other topic, ami only urge upon your Immediate consideration the "slate of the union," as shown In the present condition of our treasury anil our general fiscal situation, upon which every element of our safety and prosperity depends. The reports of the heads of departments, which will lie submitted, contain full and explicit information touching the transactions of the business intrusted to them, and such recommendations relating to legislation in the publlo Interests as they deem adI ask for these visable. reports and recommendations tbe deliberate examination and Action of the legislative branch of the government. There are other subjects not embraced In the departmental reports, demanding legislative consideration, and which I should be glad to submit. Some of them, however, have been earnestly presented In previous messages, and as to them I beg leave to repeat as to prior recommendations. As the law makes no provision for any re;ort from the dewtrtmsut of state, a brief history of the transactions of that lmirtant department, together with other matters, which It may hereafter be deemed essential to commend to the attention of the congress, may furnish tbe occasion for a future communication.
