DoWitt Talmago Doflnoa tho CbrlBtian'a Duty. It U to Defend tlicV Cause of Christ nt All Tltnoa, uml Not, by silence, to Glvo Aid and Comfort to tho Dovll. The following' sermon wns delivered by Rev. T. DcWitt Talmagc in the Brooklyn tubcrnnclc, from the text: Thon dumb and deaf Bplrlt, I rbnrtro thco, com* ont ot him.—Mark lx., 85. Here was a case of great domestic anguish. The BOO of the household was possed of an evil spirit, which, among Other things, paralyzed his tongue and made him speechless. When the in- fluenca -evas on tho patient ho could not •ay a word—articulation was impossible. Tho spirit that captured this member of the household was a dumb spirit —so -called by Christ—a spirit abroad to-day, and as lively and potent as in the New Testament times. Yet, in nil the realms ol Bermonology, I can ucit find a discourse concerning this dumb devil which Christ charged upon in my text, saying: "Como out of him." There has been much destructive, superstition abroad in the world concerning possession by evil spirits. Under tho form of belief in witchcraft, this delusion swept the continents. Persons wcro supposed to be possessed with some evil spirit, which made them able to destroy others. In the sixteenth century, in Geneva, 1,500 persons were burned to death ns witches. Under one judge, in Lorraine, nine handred persons were burned to death as witches. In one neighborhood of Franco ono thousand persons were burned. In two centuries two hundred thousand persons were slain * as witches. So mighty was the delusion that it included among its victims some of tho greatest intellects ot all time, such as Chief Justine Matthew Hale and Sir Edward Colic, and such renowned ministers of religion as Cotton Mather, one of whose books, IVn- Jamin Franklin said, shaped his life— and Richard Baxter, and Archbishop Cronmer, and Martin Luther; and, among writers and philosophers, Lord Bacon. That belief, which him become tho laughing stoelc of all sensible people, counted its disciples among the •wisest and best peoples of Sweden, Germany, England, France, Spain and New England. But, while we reject witchcraft, any man who believes the Bible must believe that there are diabolical agencies abroad In the world. While there are ministering spirits to bless, there are infernal spirits to hinder, to poison nnd to destroy. Christ was speaking to a spiritual existence, when, standing before tho aillietcd ono of the text, he said: "Thou dumb and deaf spirit, come out of him." Against this dumb devil of the text I put you on your guard. Do not think that this agent or evil has put his blight on those who by omission of the vocal organs have had the golden gates of speech bolted and barred. Among those who have never spoken a word are tho most gracious and lovely and talented Bonis that were ever Incarnated. Tho chaplains of the asylums for tho dumb can tell you enchanting stories of those who never called tho name of father mother or child, and many ot tho most devout and prayerful souls will never In this world apeak the name of Clod or Christ. Many u denf mute havo I seen with the angel of intelligence seated at the window of tho eye, who never camo forth from the door of ".tho mouth What a miracle of lovel incss and knowledge was Laura Bridgman, of New Hampshire, not only without faculty of speech, but without hearing aud with out sight, all these faculties removed by sickness when two years of age, yet, becoming a wonder at nccdlo work, nt the piano, at tho sowing machino, and an intelligent student of the Scriptures, and confounding philosophers, who came from all parts of tho world to study the phenomenon. Thanks to Christianity for what it has dono for tho amelioration of tho condition of tho deaf and tho dumb. Back in tho ages they were put to death ns having no right, with such paucity of equipment, to live, and for centuries they wcro classed among tho idiotic and unsafe, But in tho sixteenth century came Pedro Ponce, the Spanish monk and in tho seventeenth century came Juan Pablo Bonet, another Spanish monk, with dnctylol- ogy or tho finger alphabet; and In our own century wo havo had John Braid, wood and Doctors Mitchell and Ackcrly, and Poet and Gallaudot, who havo given to uncounted thousands of those whoso tongues were forever silent the power to spell out on tho air by a manual alphabet their thoughts about this world and their hopes for the next. Wo ro- J olco in tho brilliant inventions in bo- ittlf of those who were born dumb. Ono ot the most imprcssivo audiences I ever - addressed was In tho far west two or hypocrisy, or made a pun out" of something thajt Christ said. The luugh started and you joined in, and not one word of protest did you utter. What kept you sllent7 Modesty'. 1 No. Incapacity to answer? No. Lark of opportunity? No. It was a blow on both your lip 1 by tho wing of the dumb devil. 11 ,oino ono should malign your father, or mother, or wife, or husband, or child, you would flush up quick, and cither with an indignant word or doublcd-up fist, make response. And yet, hero is our Christian religion, which has dono so much for you and so much for tho world that it will take all eternity to celebrnte it, and yet, when it was attacked, you did not so much as say: "I difYer. I object I nm sorry to hear you say that. There three years ago—an audience of about tlx hundred persons, who had never heard a sound or spoken n. word, an interpreter standing bosido mo whllo'I addressed them, I congratulated that audience on two advantages they had ever the most of us—the one that they escaped hearing a great many disagreeable things, and,. on the other fact, they escaped saying things they wcro sorry for afterward. Yot, after all tho alleviations, a shackled tongue Is an appalling limitation. But wo aro not this - morning speaking of congenital mutes. We mean those who aro born with all the faculties ol vocalization, and yot nave been struck by* the ovtl ono mentioned in the text—the dumb devil to .whom Christ called, when ho said "Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge < thee, come out of him.'' There has been apotheoslzatlon of •Uence. Some one has said silence is golden, and sometimes the greatest triumph is to keep your mouth shut. But sometimes silence Is a crime aud the direct result of the baleful influence on the' dumb'devil of our text. •There Is hardly a uiun or woman In j^hla house to -day who has not been • present on some occasion when tho Christian religion became a. target for raillery. Perhaps it was over in the '•tore some day, when there was not much golug on and the clerks were In a " • groups er U was: 1R a*; fjotory at tho noon spell; or it was out on the farm, .under, the trees, while you were rest- 5 ••' tug; or it was in the- alub room; or it was in a social elrolei or It was in tho : ' streeW on the way homo from business; er it was on some occasion which you .^xmembtr'. without my describe •'''•*Am »»V 89m* on* 99% ,the laugh is nnolher side to this." You Christian people ought in such times as these to go armed, not with earthly weapons but with the sword of tho spirit. You ought to have four or five questions with which you could confound any man who attacks Christianity. A man ninety years old was telling me a few days ago how he put to flight a scoffer. My aged friend said to tho skeptic: "Did you ever read tho history of Joseph in the Bible?" "Yes," said the man, "it is a line story, nnd ns interesting a story ns I ever read." "Well, now," said my old friend, "suppose that account of Joseph stopped half way?" "Oh," said the man, "then it would not be entertaining," "Well now," said my friend, "we have in this world only half of everything, and do you not think tliat when wo hear tho last half, things may be consistent, nnd that then wo may Und that God was right?" Oh, friends, better load up with a few interrogation points. You can not afford to be silent when God and tho Bible nnd the things of eternity arc assailed. Your silence gives consent to tho bombardment of your father 's house. You allow a slur to be cast on your mother's dying pillow. In behalf of the Christ, who for you went through the agonies of assassination on the rocky blurt back of Jerusalem, you dared not face a sickly joke. Better oad up with a few questions, so that next time you will be ready. Say to the scoffer: "My dear sir, will you tell me what makes tho difference between the condition of women in China and the United States? What do you think of the sermon on the mount? How do you like the golden rule laid down in tho Scriptures? Are you in favor of the ten commandments? In your large and cxtensivo rending have you come across a lovelier character than Jesus Christ? Will you please to name the triumphant death-bed of infidels and atheists? How do you account for the fact that among the out-and-out believers in Christianity wen; such persons ns Benjamin Franklin, John lluskin, Thomas Car- lylc, Babiiigton Mccaulay, William ]>enn, Walter Koott, dmi-lusi Kiitfrwloy Horace Bushncll, James A. Garfield Robert 13. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Admiral i'oote, Admiral Furrugut, Ulysses S. Grant, John Milton, William Shakespeare, Chief-Justice Marshall, John Adams, Daniel Webster, George Wash Ington? How do you account tor their fondness for tho Christian religion? Among the innumerable colleges and universities of the earth, will yon name mo' three started by inlidels and now supported by infidels? Down in your heart aro you really happ y in tho position you occupy antagonistic to tho Christian religion? But then there aro occasions when this particular spirit that Christ exorcised when Ho said: "I charge thee to como out of him," takes people by tho wholesale. In tho most responsive religious audience liave you noticed how many people never sing nt all? They have a book and they havo a vol -e and they know how to read. They know many of tho times, and yot aro silent while tho great raptures of music pass by. Among those who sing not ono out of a hundred sings loud enough to hear his own voice. They hum it Thcygivo a sort of religions grunt They make tho lips go, but it is Inaudible. Wlthavoico strong enough to stop a street car ono block away, all they can nflord In tho pratso of God is about half a whisper. With enough sopranos, onough altos, enough bassos to make a small heaven between tho four walls they let tho opportunity go by unimproved, Tho volume of voice that ascends from tho largest audience that ever assembled ought to bo multiplied about two thousand fold. But tho minister rises and gives out tho hymn; tho audience aro standing so that tho lungs may havo full expansion, and a mighty harmony 1 B about to ascend, when tho evil spirit spoken of In my text— tho dumb dovll— spreads his two wings, ono over tho Hps of ono-half tho audience and tho other wing over the Hps of tho other half of tho audience, and tho voices roll baok Into tho throats from which they started, and only hero and • there anything 1 heard, nnd nine-tenths of tho holy pow er is dcst.ro3'cd; and the dumb devil as he flics away, sayB: "I could not keep Isaac Watts from writing that hymn, and I could not keep Lowoll Mason from composing tho tuno to which it is set, but I smote into silence or half silonco tho Hps from which would havo spread abroad to bless neighborhoods and cities, and thon mount tho wldo-open heavens." Glvo the long -motor doxology tho full support of Christendom, and thoso four llnoB would talto the whole earth for Ood. During tho cotton famine Jn Lancashire, England, when tho suffering was something terrific, as tho first wagon load of cotton rolled in, the starving people unhooked tho horses and drow the load themselves, singing, until all Lancashire joined In with triumphant voices, their ohoeks sopping with tears: "Praise God from whom nil blessings flow," When Commodore Perry, with his war-ship, tho Missis slpl, lay off tho coast of Japan he bombarded the shores with "Old Hundred," played by tho marine band. Glorious "Old Hundred," composed by William Frnno, of Germany. In a war prison, at 10 o 'clock at night, tho poor fellows, far from homo and wounded and sick and dying, ono prisoner started the "Old Hundred Doxology," and then a score ot voices joined, then all the prls. pners on all tho floors took up the ao<: claim until tho building from founds* tlon to topstone fairly quaked with tho melodious ascription, A Urlttsh man of.war, lying off a foreign const, heard a voice singing that dQsqlogy v and tnv mediately guessed, and "guessed aright, that there was an • Rngl^sjbwanj; }n : shore and burst Into tho guard house and set the captive free. I don't know what tunc the trumpets of resurrection shall play, but It may be the doxology which i-- now sounding across Christendom. How much more hearty wo would bo in our songs, nnd how cosily we could drive back tho dumb devil from nil our worshiping assemblages, if we could realize that nearly all our hymns have a stirring history. That glorious hymn, "Stand up for Jesus," was suggested by the last words of Dudley T 'yng, who was dying from having his right arm torn off by a threshing machine. That hymn. "What a Friend We have in Jesus," heard through a telephone, converted an obdurate soul. "Shall We (lather at the Itiver?" was a hymn first sung In our Brooklyn Prospect park at the children's May anniversary, and then started to encircle the world. "Where Is My Wandering Boy To-night?" Is a song that has saved hundreds of dissipated young men. Tom, the drummer boy in tho army, was found crying, and nn ofllcer asked him what was the matter. "Oh!" ho said, "I had a dream last night. My sister died ten years ago, nnd my mother never was herself csriaatuml 1 WpUyity to th» #obanrae^ansi and in voew m 4 *ave aln, and she died soon after. Last ght I dreamed 1 was killed in battle, and that mother and sister came down to meet mo." After the next battle was over some one crossing the Ucld heard a voice that he recognized as tho voice of Tom, the drummer boy, singing "Jesus, Lover of My Soul." Uut at the end of tho first verse tho voice became very ehlc, and at the end of the second verse it stopped, and they went up nnd found Tom, the drummer boy, leaning against a stump, and dead. That hymn, "O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing," was suggested to Charles Wesley by Peter Bolder, who, after conversion, said: "I had better keep silent about it" "No," said Wesley, "if you had ten thousand tongues yon had better use thein for Christ" nd then flint angel of hymnology penned the words: O. for n thousand toiiRnei to «lnff My di 'iu- K<.(li 'om <>r'« i »r :iln\ Thu plorfpa of my Ood and King. Tho triumphs of Hi* gracj Jesus, thn n.imo tlmt calms onr foars. That bid* our sorrows coaso; *Tis muHlo in tho pinner 's oara, 'TIs liro nnd lienltli nnd pi -iico. While much of the modern music is a religious doggerel, n consecrated nonsense, a sacred imbecility, I would liko to seo some great musician lift tho baton and marshal Luther 's "Judgment Hymn," "Yarmouth," Dundee," "Ariel." 'Brattle Street." "Uxbridge." "Pleycl's nymn," "Harwell," "Antioeh," "Mount Msgah" nnd "Coronation." with a few iments of mighty tunes made in our own time, and storm Asia, Africa and America for the kingdom of God. But the first, tiling to do is to drive out tho dumb devil of tho text from all our churches. Do not, however, let us lose ourselves in generalities. Not. one of ns but. hn« had our lives sometimes touched by tho evil spirit of the text —this awful dumb devil. We had just one opportunity of saying a Christian word that might havo led a man or woman into a Christian life. Tho opportunity was fairly put before us. The word of invitation or consolation or warning came to tho Inside gate of tho mouth, but there it halted. Somo hindering power locked the jaws toguther so that they did not open. Tho tongue lay flat and still in tho bottom of tho mouth as though struck with paralysis, Wo wcro mute. Though God had given us tho physiological apparatus for speech, and our lungs wcro filled with air which, by the command of our will, could havo made tho laryngeal muscles movo and tho vocal organs vibrate, we woro wickedly and fatally silent. For all time and eternity wo missed our ohnnco. Or it was a prayer meeting, and the service was thrown open for prayer and remarks, and titer was a dead halt —everything sllont as a grave -ynrd at midnight Indeed, It was a grave-yard and midnight. An embarrassing pause took plnco that put a wet blanket on all the meeting. Men,, bold enough on business ex chango or in worldly circles, shut their eyes as though they wcro pray in;. In silence, but they woro not praying at all. They wcro busy hoping somebody else would do his duty. Tho women (lushed under tho awful pause and made their fans moro rapidly flutter. Somo brother, with no cold, coughed, by that sound trying to fill up tho time, and tho meeting was slain. But what killed it?—tho dumb devil. This Is tho way I account for tho fact that tho stupidest places on earth aro somo prayer meetings. I do not seo how a man keeps any grace If ho regularly attends them. They aro spiritual refrigerators. But do not lot tho world deride tho church becanso of all this,' for tho dumb devil is just as couBpicuous 'in tho world. Tho two great political parties will Boon asNemblo to build platforms for the presidential candidates to stand on. A Committee of each party will bo appointed to make tho platform. After proper deliberations tho committees •will come In with a ringing report: "WhoreaB," and "Whereas." Pronun- olamontooB all Bhaped with tho one Idea of getting the most votes. All expression in regard to tho great moral evils ol the country ignored. No expression about the liquor trafllo, for that would lose the rum vote. No expression in regard to tho universal attempt at tho demolition of the Lord's day. No recognition ol God in the history of this nation, for that would loso tho voto ol atholBts. But "whereas" and "whereas" and "whereas." Nino cheers will be given to tho platform, The dumb devil oltbe text will put ono wing ovor the republican platform, and the other wing over the democratlo platform. There is nothing involved In tho >noxt election except officers. Tho great convention will bo opened With prayer by their chaplains. If thoy avoid platitudes and tell tho honest truth in thoir prayers thoy will Bay: "Oh, Lord, we want to be postmasters, and consuls, and foreign ministers, and district attorneys. For that we are here, and for that we will strivp till the election next November, Glvo us omoe or wo-die. Forever and over, amen," The world, to tho least, is no better than the church, on thU subject of sh lence at the wrong time, In other words, is it not time for Christianity to becoroe pronouueed and aggressive at never before?

It is not generally known that the Chesapeake, famous for historic encounter witb the British ship, the Sbi-noon, iu 1813, is in existence tod ,y, ns sound and staunch as the day she was launched, but is used in the capacity of a flou- mill, and is mnk ing money for a heartv Hampshire miller in tbe little parish of Wickhum. After hereipturo by Sir Puilip B. V. Broke, she was taken to England in 18M. nnd iu 1820 her limbers wero sold to John Prior, miller, of Wickhnm, Hants. Mr. Prior pulled down his own mill at Wick- bam, aud errcted a now one frocu the Chesapeake timbers, which ho found admirably adapted for the purpose. Ihe deck beams were thirty-two fset long and ' eighteen ; inches siunr", aud were placed unaltered horizontally in tbe mill. The purlins c f the dock were about twelve feet long, and served without alteration for joists. Many of these timbers yet hav.' the marks of the Shannon 's grapushot, and in some places the shot are'still,to be seeu deeply imbedded in the pitch pine.

Put out your Jersey Wakofield in tho uciial way, only use the veay best strong plants, una set them on your richest land; and when tho heads are ready to sell, cut out tho head, leaving all tho outside leaves attached to tho stump; that is, cut out tbe head ao as to leavf! no leuves to strip off und throw away, for tho loaves are all loft on the stump. Now keep cultivating these slumps along with the other cabbages that have not yet beaded, nnd voiy soon small heads will start out on tho stump. Pull off all Ihesn little heads but the best one, and this will soon make n head as good as, and may bo better loan, the first one. 1 presume this is not sew to many of you, unless it. is tho picking-oil of all Ihe little heads except ono.

All the love making in South American must be carried on through a third person. If a youth desires to marry be aces not speak of it to tbo girl whom he wishes for a wife, but to his own fathor. The latter, if he ni proves, goes to the father of tho young lady, and the two discuss tbe matter together. Each tells what be wilt do for the young folks, and between them a contract is drawn up respecting settlements and all such things. Tbe intending bridegroom is - not permitted to Bee his fianoj for a moment before thn wedding. As soon OB that event has taken place there is a wedding break fast, aad usually, without the formality of a preliminary tour, the couple settle down to living, either in an oitablishment of their own, or more often in tbe house ot the narents of the bride or the groom. Ono draw-bock about marriaeo in South America is that in taking a girl to wifo it is apt to be oonsidored a matter of course that the youug man marries tbe whole family also. He has no occasion for surprise or disgruntlement, if, together with bis bride, till eon or twenty teople come to share his household and domestic com forts, including all her available relatives and their servants.

It does not jump or spring us monkeys usually d), and never appears to hurry itself unless somo real danger presents. Yet, in spite of its apparently slow movements, it gets along far quicker than a person i unning through t lie forest beneath. Various stories ure told about its huge dimensions and great height, but I huvo never seen one over four feet high from head to heel and from seven to eight feet, meaiuring from Soger to finger across the outstretched arms, ibo width of tho face varying in measurement from eight to twelve inches, though the accounts of larger animals having been met with may be comot. Tbe tradition* of the Dyuks is tbp' here is no animal iu the j'ingle that dareattaok the orang-outang except tbe python and tbe crocodile.
