For many weeks the prayers of thc (

OVON the absence of nil religion have
proved no barriers ; ami from million *
lioarts since that fata ) July morning
earnest petitions have daily arisen
that God would bo pleased to spare
the lifo of James A. Garfield and re-
him to the nation which
loved him no well. And yol
the president is dead. In
the bitterness of our spirit wo may
feel inclined to any that the Almighty
has not heard or that Ho haa not an-
iwered. Not so. Ho haa hoard anil
[ Io haa answered n Boomed best in ac
cordance with the laws which Ho hat
made to govern His universe , llo has
tiiBwored in the highest nnd greatest
icnso by briiKfinir the American pco-
plo into a grand unity beside the bod-
ido ot their dead executive. Tlio wish
of man cannot determine tfio "will of
God. Thn prayer of the human can
not alter an inflexible purpose which
runs through ell the ages ; but bottuij
ind far moro important than
the mere ' gaining of the
object of the petitioners has been the
effect upon the hearts of the people ,
Forbearing to clmhgo his lawn , the
Creator has prepared our nation foi
the change in the afluir.of state b }

into a unity of purpose fit for sustain

fitted to sustain their now executive
: han if Prcnident Garfield had fallen
a victim to his wounds on the day he
was shot. It is not for the fin i to to

The true ofllcaoy of prayer is to

AT the extra session of the senate
jto bo convened on October 10th , "
ihoro will bo in their seats according
to present appearances thirty-seven
democratic senators , thirty-four republicans
publicans , ono independent ( David' '
| Davis ) _ and Senator Mnhono. The
democrats will have a clear majority ,
on organization , and from all reports
will cheese ono of their own ( membera
as president pro torn , who will bo
next in succession to the presidency ,
in case of the death of Vice president ]
Arthur. There is every reason to bo-
liovu that Senators Laplmrn and Miller
lor , and the successor to Sona-j
tor liurnsido , who is yet to * be ap
pointed , will not bo permitted
: o take their Beats until after the or
ganization of the senate is concluded ,
[ t is confidently predicted that as
ioon as this is dune another organ !
zation will bo immediately attempted
with the result of just such a dead ,
lock as took place last'spring.
There is , however , n possibifity
that the thirty-soven democrats may
not all bo iu their seats on the tenth ]
of October. Den Hill , for instance ,
has recently undergone an operation
for cancer and several democratic sen
ators are said to have gene abroad. If
the republicans take advantage of the ]
disability or absence of the democrats
'hey ' may succeed in admitting the
two Now York aomvtors and the suc
cessor of Burnsido on the first day
.ho session , and that will give them
the supremacy in organizing thu sun
uto. ' It would bu impossible for the
democrats , even when all their mum
bora aso present , to , reorganize the
senate , because the 37 republicans
with JIahono would be an oftset to 37
democrats with David Davis.

Tlio national convention of the
Irish Land League , whoso ocmion in
Dublin has attracted wiclo and descrv-
! od interest on account of ttio largo' '
jjiiumborA of rcprejsontivo men in the
body and the policy outlined by its
leader , Mr. Piirnell. Mr. I'arnell bo-f
i aii his npccch with the ivssortion that
Irbland v/ill never bo prosperous 01
ontoutod until her people enjoy the
right of nolf-govcnimont. Ho do-
iKjunccd the coercion act m n measure
"founded upon fraud , devised in i
pirlt of malignant hypocrisy nnd ox
[ ccutcd for the gratification of private
vindictivonesi. " Ho declared that
irhilo ono man is detained in prison
under the coercion act the condition
the people cannot bo considered a *
improved. Ho averred that the land
juostion will never bo nt rest until
thu landlords are abolished and the
tiller owns tlio noil. Ho proposed
that the farmer shall sot aoido
{ portion of his land for the use of the
/laborer half an aero of tilled land
jjfor each thirty acrca in the farm
"pending further legislation tor en
abling laborers to become owners of
Jand. " Ho urged the people to
flonly articles of Irish manufac
ture , and purposes to usaist
EL- ind encourage homo industries.
Of course Mr. Par n ell is about to ap
peal to Amuriun for aid in his now ng
itation. It may as well bn said that
ho will fail to meet the response-
which lie anticipates. If there was
the slightest possibility that an independent
pendent national existence could bu
guaranteed to Ireland no people
ivould rejoice more greatly than the
Americans. But political leaders
must look at facts , not dreams. The
fact is that Ireland is an important
part of n great empire as much aj
part of great Britain as South C.iroli-l
na is of the United State * . England !
would as soon consent to the mdcpcn-i
Jonco of Ireland as America to the !
locossion of South Carolina. This is )
a question that is governed by consld-B
orations of high national aa'foty. En-j
gland knows that if Inland were free
to-morrow aho would become the ally
or the tool of any continental powoi
that chose to make war upon
the crown. She knows that
there is a largo portion of
the Irish people the thrifty , pious ,
industrious class in the north espec
allp who would regard socessioi :
'rom .England . as an unspeakable
calamity and would resist it to the
irorgo of civil war. She feels as much
irido in the integrity of her empire
is wo do in the integrity of our ro
public. For Irishmen in America ,
; heroforo , to consributc money to sup
> ort BO dreamy and . ; hopolcsn MI ui
atton is worse than folly. What
irishmen should demand ia that they
ihould hnvo the same liberty in home
iffairs as Now York and South Caro-
inn enjoy under our federal constita
ion. An agitation for this would be
iraclical and sensible. There is no
loubt that if. Irishmen patriotically
uid zealously press these reforms up-
3ii the attention of the British gor-
rnment other beneficent mcasurcb
fill follow the passage of the land
The revolt in Eaypt Booms to have

fhoro is a longing desire for Homo
tort of representative institutions ;

vant freedom from personal domina
ion and something which will give n
iart of the rosulta which they sou are
wrought about in the west. The

nination of a scries of ovants. It
nves its immediate origin to the arbi
trary actions of Riius Pasha , the premier

moment. Moreover , there is a strong

is of little importance , and any belief

The inodo of conducting election1)
in Europe are varied and quito inter-
'jstiiig in their details RJ regards the
expenses of contests In Austria the !
expenses o ! elections to the roicliDrathj
ire berne entirely by the state , the ]
candidates defraying only their per- !
aonal canvassing charges , which arc
alight. Voters are not to bo treatec
or convoyed to the p'olling places ; am"
if the supporters of a candidate choose
to bear his expenses these must be
confined to such trifling charges as
advertising , stationary and'postage. .
In Hungary the official expenses arc
also berne by the state , and they arc
said to bo so insignificant as to be
scarcely taken into consideration.
Corrupt practices arc , however , said
to bo common in apito of a law passed
in 1874 for their suppression. In Bel
gium the communes bear the expenses ,
except those of the hustings , which
are furnished by the government on
the condition of their being maintained
and i kept iu repair. In France , on
; ho contrary , the local authorities-
put to no expense whatever , the state
laying oven for everything that ia
published relating to the electoral
ista as well as for notices to electors
[ n the Gorman empire the general ox
jonsea of elections are defrayed by
; ho provinces , municipalities and dis
ricts ; but it is understood that olec
ions involvt ) expunditure of money
> y the candidates , and a general clcc
.ion for the rcichstag does not cost less
Jian ono million marks for ea-h side ,

The two governments whoso heads

letter was written the future

"Commend mo to the friend that conic
When I am sad and lone ,
And makes the nnetiish of my heart
The miffcrlng of hN own ;
Who coldly shuns the glittering throng
At pleasure's Ray levro
And oomcs to gild a fombre hour
And give his henrt'to me. '
He hears mo count my sorrows o'er ,
And when the task in done
Ho freely gives mo all I ask ,
A * 5gh for every 'ono.
He cnnnot wear n smiling fnco
When mine i touched with gloom ,
But like the violets necks to cheer
The midnight with perfume.
Csmmend mo to that generous heart
Which like the pine on high
Uplifts the same unvarying brow
To every change of sky ;
Whoso friendship does not fniio away
When wintry tempests blow ,
But like the winter's icy crown ,
Looks greener through the snow.
Ho flics not with the flitting stork ,
Thnt seeks a Southern sky.
But lingers where the wounded bird
Hath laid him down to die.
O , such a friend 1 Ho is in truth
Whntc'er his lot may be ,
A rainbow on the storm of life ,
An anchor on its sea. "

They are destined hereafter
to hold companionship with
Lincoln's favorite poem , "Why
Should the Spirit of Mortal Bo Proud. "
[ t seems strange almost to prophecy
hat Garflcld should quote them in
his way in his youth. Thus holding
ibovo all value the symyathy and love
of friends ho lived to receive years
tfter , an'd when his lifo was closing ,
juch a measure of human love and
sympathy as ivas never offered mortal
man before.
Piosldent G.arflold's Church.
The opinion has been expressed
that there is something "queer" in
the religion of the Christian church to
nrhich President Gartield belonged and
many people are inclined to adopt this
opinion. That there is no cause for
luch a belief in evident from the
ivords of Alexander Campbell , who in
L833 wrote in reply to a question :
'A complete scriptural reformation is
irgcd and defined ; having for its
ipocified object to inculcate and
: educe to practice that simple
mginal form of Christianity , ex-
grossly exhibited on the sacred ;
mce ; ; without attempting to in-
: ulcato anything of human authority ,
) f private opinion , or inventions of
nen , as having any place in the con-
ititutipn , faith , or wisdom of the
Christian church , or anything as mater -
; or of Christian fait or duty , for which
herre cannot bo expressly produced a
thus saith the Lord , ' either in ex-
ircss terms or bj * approved precedent. "
Simplicity , indeed , seems to bo the
nain characteristic of the creed of the
hurch if such it could bo called. A
orrespondont has sent us the follow-
ng passage , clipped from a certificate
laptism presented to a now convert ,
rhioh bears out this view : "You
iavo this day put on Christ , before
; ho world by-baptism , and by this
ict declared your faith in the
icath , burial , and resurrection
jf our Lord Jesus Christ. As you
ire now to walk in newness of lifo , be
'aithful in all the duties which the
3reat Head of the church hath on-
oinod upon you and especially those
lutics as mentioned in Acts ii , 42.
And they continued steadfastly in
.ho Apostles' doctrine and fellowship ,
ind in breaking of bread and of
grayer. ' Cultivate friendship and
inivcrsal benevolence with all inan-j
cind. Speak evil of no ono , but live ]
n pcaco with thu world , and you shall
inally have a peaceful hour in which
.o die , nnd dwell with God and the
ingolfl iu the mansions of everlasting
