ALL AltE YOURS. Rev. T. DoWltt Ttvlmafto Tolls ol Mankind's Princely Horitago. Includes All or this World nml tho World to Come, fttul .May bo Socuroii If tho I.lnliUUl.j nrti Promptly Met. Tho following discourse is one nmong the ninny delivered by Uov. T. DeWitt Talninge in England. It is entitled: "Our Possessions," nnd is based on tho text: All nro yours.—I Corinthians, 111., 2J. The impression Is abroad that religion puts a man on short allowance; that when the ship sailing heavenward comes to tho shining wharf, it will be found out that all the passengers had tho hardest kind of sea fare; that the soldiers in Christ's army raareh most of the time with an empty haversack; in a word, that only those people have a good time In this world who take upon themselves no religious obligation. I want to-day to find out whether this la so, and I am goine to take account of •took; I am going to show what are tho Christian's liabilities, and what is his income, and what are his warranty deeds, and what are his bonds nml mortgages, and I shall find out before I finish just how much lie is worth, and I ehall spread before yon the balance- sheet in time to warn you all against the religion of Jesus Christ, if, indeed, it be a failure, and in time for you all to accept it, if indeed it be a success. I turn first to the assets, and I lind there what seems to be a roll of government securities—the empire of Heaven promising all things to the possessor. The three small words of my text are a warranty deed to the whole universe when it says: "All are yours." In making an Inventory of the Christian's possessions, I remark, in the iirst place that he owns the world. My text implies it, and the preceding verse asserts it—"whether Paul, or A polios, or Cephas, or the world." Now, it •would be an absurd thing to suppose that God Von Id give to strangers privileges and advantages which He would deny His own children. If you have a large park, a grand mansion, beautiful fountains, stalking deer, and statuary, to whom will you give the first right to all these possessions'.' To outsiders? No, to your own children. You will say: "It will be very well for outsiders to come in and walk these paths and enjoy this landscape; but the first right to my house, and the first right to my gardens, shall be In the possession of my own children." "Now, this world is (fod's park, and while He allows those who are not His children and who refuse His authority the privilege of walking through the gardens, the possession of all this granduer of park and mansion is in the right of the Christian—the flowers, tho diamonds, the silver, tho gold, the morning brightness and the evening shadow. The Christian may not have the title deed to one acre of land as recorded in the clerk's office; he may never have paid SI of taxes; but ho can go upon a mountain and look off upon fifty miles of grain field and say: 'All this is mine; my Father gave it to me.' All are yours." A lawyer is sometimes required to search titles, and the client who thinks ho has a good right to nn estate puts the papers in his hands, and the lawyer goes into tho publio records, and finds everything right for three or four or five years back; but after awhile, ho comes to a break in tho title, to a deficit, to a diversion of the property; so he finds out that tho man who supposed he owned it owns not an acre of the grounds, while somebody else has the full right to the entire estate. Now, I examine tho title to all earthly possessions. I go back a little way and I find that men of the world—bad men, solflsh men, wicked men—think they have a right to all these posses •Ions; but I go further back, and ] trace the title from year to year, and from century to century, until I find tho whole right vested in God, Now, to whom did Ho give it'.' To His own children! "All aro yours." The simple fact is, that in tho last days of tho world all the architecture, all the cities, all the mountains, all the Tillages will bo in possession of tho Churoh of Christ "The meek shall inherit tho earth." Ships of Tarshlsh •hall bring presonts, "Tho earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof." "All aro yours." "But," you say, "what satisfaction is thoro in that whon I haven't possession of them?" These things will come before the Supremo Judge of the universe, und Ho will regulate the title, and Ho will eject these squatters upon the proporty that does not bolong to tliem, und it shall be found that "All are yours." So, again, the refinements of life aro tho Christian 's right. Ho has a right to as good apparel, to as beautiful adornments, to us commodious a rest deuce as the worldling. Show mo any passage in tho Bible that tolls the people of! tho world they havo privileges, they have glittering spheres, they have befitting apparel that aro denied the Christian. There is no one who has so much a right to laugh, none so much a right to everything that is beautiful and grand and sublimu in life as tho Christian. "AH lire yours." Can it be possible that ono who is reckless and sinful, and has no treasures laid up in Heaven, is to be allowed pleasures which tho sons and daughters of God, the owners of the whole universe, aro denied? So I remark that all tho sweot sounds of the world are in the Christian's right. There aro people who have an idea that instruments of music are inappropriate tot the Christian's parlor. When did the house of Bin or the bacchanal ge the right to music? They have no right to it. God, In my text, makes over to Christian people all the pianos, all the harps, all the drums, ull the corneto, all tho flutes, all the organs. People of the world may barrow them, but they only lioivow them; thoy have_na organ pipes, and you Bhnll sec God's hand striking the keys, and Hod's foot tramping the pedals in the great oratorio of the ages. So all artistic and literary advantages are in the Christian's right. I do not care on whose wall the picture hangs, or on whose pedastnl the sculptor stands, it belongs to Christians. Tho Hlersludts and the churches are all working for us. "All are yours." The Luxembourg, the Louvre, all the galleries of Naples and Home and Venice —they are all come into the possession of the church of Jesus Christ. We may not have them on our walls, but the time will come when the writ of eject­ ment will be served and the church will possess everything. All parks, all fish ponds, all colors, all harvests—all, "all are yours." Secondly, I remark that the right to full temporal support is in the Christian's name. It is a great a Hair to feed the world. Just think of the fact that this morning, ono billion six hundred million of our race breakfasted at God's table! The commissary department of one hundred thousand men in nn army will engage scores of people; but just think of a commissary department of a world! Think of tho gathering up from the rice swamps, and the tea llelils, and the orchards, nnd the fisheries! No one but God could tell how many bushels it would take to feed live continents. Then, to clothe all these people—how many furs must be captured, and how much llax must Iv broken, and how much cotton picked. Just think of the infinite wardrobe where sixteen hundred million of people get their clothes! God spreads the table Iirst of all for His children. Of course, that would be a very selfish man who would not allow other people to come and sit. at his table sometimes; but. first of all, the right is given to Christian people, and therefore it is extreme folly for them ever to fret about food or raiment. Who fed the whales sporting off Cape Ilatterus this morning? Out of whose hand did the cormorant pick its food? Whose loom wove the buttery's wintr'.' Wlio hears the hawk's cry? If God takes cure of a walrus and n Si- berean dog, and a wasp, will He not take care of you? Will a father have more regurd for reptiles than for his sous and daughters? If God clothes the grizzly bear, a nil the panther, and the hyena, will He not clothe His own hildren? Come. then, this morning, and get the key of the infinite storeroom. Here they are—all the keys. All ate yours." See all the vicissitudes of this life, so far as they have any religious profit, n the right of the Christian. If on should stand among the Allegheny noiintaiiis, especially near what in lied the "Horseshoe," yon would find train of curs almost doubling on it self, and sitting in the back car you see locomotive coining as you look out of the window, and you think il is auoth- r train when it is only the front of the rain on which you are riding; and some- imes you can hardly tell whether the rain is going toward Pittsburg or to- ard Philadelphia, but it isuii the right track, and it will reach the depot for which it started, and all the passengers will be discharged at the right place, Now, there aro a great many sharp curves In life. Sometimes we seem to be going this way, and sometimes we seem to be going that way; but if we are Christians wo nre on tho right track and wo nro going to come out at tho right place. Do not get worried, then, about tho sharp curve. \ sailing vessel starts from Now York foi Glasgow. Does it go in a stright lino? Oh, no. It changes its tack every little while. Now, yon say: "This vessol, instead of going to Glasgow, must ho going to Havre, or it is going to Hamburg, or it is going to .Marseilles." No, no, it is going to Glasgow. And in this voyage of life we often havo to change our tack. One storm blows us this way, and another storm blows us that way; but lie who holds tho winds in His fist will bring us into a haven of everlasting rest just at the right tiino. Do not worry, then, if you have to change tack. One of the best things that over happened to Paul was being thrown oft? his horse. Ono of the best things that ever happened to Joseph was being thrown into the pit. The losing of his physical eyesight helped John Milton to see tho battle of tho angols. Ono of tho best things that ever happened to Ignatius was being thrown to the wild beasts in the Coliseum, and while eighty thou- Band people wore jeering at his religion ho walked up to tho fiercest of all the lions and looked him In the oyo, as much as to say: "Here I am, ready to be devoured for Christ's sake." All things work together for your good. If you walk tho desert the manna will fall and the sea will part. If the foverish touch of sickness is kindled over your pillow, by its light you can read the promises. If the waves of trouble dash high abovo your girdle, across tho blast and across tho surge you can hoar the promise: "When thou passest through tho waters I will bo with theo." You never owned a glove, or a shoo, or a hat, or a coat, more certainly than you own all tho frets and annoyances and exasperations of this life, and thoy ars bound to work out your present and your eternal good. Thoy are the saws and hammers, tho files by which you aro to bo hewn and cut and smoothed for your eternal well-being. Hero is a vessol that goes along the coast; it hugs tho coast. The captain of that vessel seems chiefly anxious to keep tho paint ou his ship from being marred, or the sails from boing torn. Whon that vessol comes to port, nobody looks on it with any interest. But here is a vossol that wont across tho sea with vast product, and comes In with vast- importation — sails patched, masts spliced, pumps all working to keep out the water, it has come through tho hurricane which has sunk twenty steamers. Tho bronzed men aro cheering among the rigging. Now the men-of-war anchored in tho harbor boom forth their woloomo through ^thfl nontib" 1 "" i^*-*i*~—• " J be leaped, no desert to he crossed. There Is the wall; there is the gate ol Heaven. He owns all on this side. Now, I nm going to show you that he owns nil on the other side. Death is not a ruffian that comes down to burn us out of house and home, destroying the house of the tabernacle, so that we shall be homeless forever. Oh, nol He is only a black messenger who comes to tell us it is time to move; to tell us to get out ol his hut, and go up into the palace. The Christian owns all Heaven. "All are yours." Its palaces of beauty, its towers of strength, Its castles of love. He will not walk in the eternal city as a foreigner in a stnmgo city, but as n farmer walks over his own premises. "All arc yours." All the mansion yours. Angels your companions. Trees of life your shade. Hills of glory your lookout. Thrones of Heaven the place where you will shout the triumph. Jesus Is yours. God is yours. You look up into the face of God and say: "My Father." You look up into the face of Jesus, and say: "My brother." Walk out on the battlements of Heaven and look oil* upon the city of the sun. Xo tears. No sorrow. No death. No smoke of toiling warchons* curling on the air. No voice of blasphemy thrilling through that bright clear Sabbath morning. No din of strife jarring the nir. Then take out your deed, and remember that from throne to throne, and from wall to wall, and from horizon to horizon, "All are yours." Then get up into the temple of tin sun, worshipers in white, each with a palm branch, and from high gallery of that temple look down upon the thousands of thousands, and the ten thousand times ten thousand, and the one hundred and forty and four thousand, and the "great multitude that in: man can number." and louder than tin rash of the wheels, louder than the tramp of the redeemed, hear a volsaying: "All nre yom-s!" See. the great procession marching around the throne of God. Martyrs who went up on wings of flame. Invalids who went up from couches of distress. Toilers who went up from the work house, and the fnetocy and the mine. All the suffering and the bruised children of God. See the chariots of salvation; in them those who were more than conquerors. See them marching around about the throne of God forever and forever, and know that "all are yours!" O ye who have pains of body that exhaust your strength and wear out your patience, I hold before you this morning the land of eternal health and of imperishable, beauty, and "all is yours 0 yc who have hard work to get your daily bread, hard work t shelter your children from the storm, 1 lift before you tho vision of that land where they never hunger, and they never thirst, and God feeds them and robes cover them, and the warmth of eternal love filled them, and all that is yours. O ye whoso hearts are burl- in the grave of your dead—O ye whose happiness went by long ago—O ye who mourn for countenances that never will light up, and for eyes closed forever- sit no longer among the tombs but look here. A home thn shall never be broken up. Green Held* never cleft of the grave. I Riinii-d ones from you p-irled long ago now radiant with a joy that shall never cease, and a love that shall never grow cold, and wearing garments that shall never wither, and know all that yours. Yours tho love. You rs tho acclaim. Yours tho transport. Yours tho cry of the four-and-twenty ciders Yours the choiring of cherubim. Yours tho Lamb that was.slain. In the vision of that glorious consinn mutton I almost- lose my foothold, and have to hold fast lest I be overborno by tho glory. The vision rose before St. John on Patmos, and he saw Christ in hlood-red garment, riding on a white horse, and all Heaven following Him on white horses. What a procession) Lot Jesus ride, no walked tho way footsore, weary and faint. Now lot Him rido. White horse of victory, hear on our Chief. Hosanna to tho son of Da- vldl Rido on, Jesus!

Finally, there nro ninny thou Bunds of voters who are determined to rebuke und punish tho democratic party for its infnuiouB electoral and legislative crimes.

When 11 party enters upon a campaign reeling reason bly sure of victory it is apt to do loss than it Bbould to lender victory certain. Thoro.nro 11 good many democrats it this Btato wdion thoy nil voto, nnd it is ot safe to assume thut any will fail lo be in his appointed place when ho is R 'linlcd. Kopublicans must not depend .in democratic dissatisfaction, nor ou the lemo.:raey '8 bad record, nor 011 Clevo- bind's personal weakness, nor 011 tbo hostilities of the rogulura to the mug­ wumps, nor on tha popular prejudice against free trade, nor on any of the onditions or ciroumstances which BOOIU to justify contieleuce. They must do pend on work—bard, steady, constant, harmonious work. They must depend on organization. In a Btate ns close as this it is generally Biifo to nssutne thnt that party will be successful which has the largest and inostfthorouglily organ- zed army of sinoere and patriotic work era in the Held. 'I ho republicans must see to it thut in every election distriot from St. Lawrence to Suffolk they have a bolter organization than their adversaries. This is tho imporlunt thing. Nothing can take its place. Tho aim everywhere should be to secure the enrollmont in a campaign club and the personal interest in its work of every man who culls himself, a republi- cun. There should be no delay in beginning this work of organization. Where clubs are already organized thoy should seok •) extend their influence, to gather in new members, to lind out those persons in their respective communities who lire republicans or who incline to support the republican ticket, uud to give them the opportunity of joining the club and ot participating in its efforts. Where there uro Bigna of disuffeotion, or fno- tionul difficulty, or even of a want of proper interest that sort of personul work should be undertaken which will bring the right influences to bear for the removul of every source of embarrassment.

That grotesque patchwork of empty platitudes ami misleading assertions— the democratic platform—begins with tho declaration that "the representatives ol the democratic party of tbo Unitotl States do reaffirm thoir iillt >giunco to the principles of tho pa ty -as formulated by Jotrorsoi and exemplified by the long unci illustrious line ot bis successors in democratic leadership from Madison to Cleveland " Later on tho platform declircB, in the language of the confederate constitution, as "a fundamental principle of tho democratic party that tho federal government hns no con-ti- tutionnl power to impose und collect tariil' duties except for tho purpose of revonue only." If Jellorson and Madison nnd Jackson could riso from their graves they would ropudiate modern democracy. Madison reported tho Iirst tarilF bill over passed at tho first session of co: gross. One of the objects of the bill as set forth in its preamble, was "tho oneourngomenl of lunnulaotures." Both ho and JellerBon wore life long protectionists. The platform upon which JolVeraon was elected in 1800 aot forth as 11 doctrine of the p.rty tho eucourugoinont 01 Bcienco and art in ull thoir branches to the end thut the American pa'ty may perfect thoir independence r f all foreign monopolies, institutions anil inlluoiices " There wua nothing of tboturilT for reveuue in that. Theio never was any doubt in Jefferson's mind either or tho constitutionality or of the wisdom of protection. In his mocsngo of Decembor2, WOO, thia puss- age occurs: "Slinll ivo surpreBB tho impost and givo that advantage to foreign ovor domestic luiinufimtuiers? Patriotism would certainly prefer its continuance nnd application to the great purposes of tho publio education, roads, rivers, CIUIIIIB anil such other objects of public improvements may bethought proper to add to constitutional enumeration of federal powers " In his message of November 8, 1808, Jefferson said "thecstablishmeiits formed uud forming will, under the auspices of cheap r materials and subsistence, tho freedom of labor from taxation with us niul ol protecting duties and prohibition, become pormanent." Jackon's message of December 7, 1830, asserted: "The power to impose duty on imports orierinally belonged to the Boverul states. The right to adjust duties with a view to the encouragement of domestic branches of industry is so completely identical with that power that it is difficult lo Biippose the existence of one with the other. The right to exercise it for tho purpo .-.e of protection does not exist in them. This indispensable power must be within tho authority of congress In this opinion I am confirmed as well by tho opinions of Presidents Washington, JedTerson, Mndi- son aud Monroe, who have ouch repeatedly recommended tho exercise ot this right under the o nstitntion, us by the uui arm practice ot congress, the continued acquiescence of tho states, and the general understanding of the people," ' Old Hickory" evidently beliced in u protective tariff. These expressions of a belief in a protective turill' by the fathers of the democracy leave 110 doubt 110 to whore they Blood. Modern democracy h .:s wandered trom the faith of the fathers.

New York Kocordor: No ma'ter what interested politicians may euy oguinst a secoed t mi in the presidency, the weight of precedent is against them. I he balance is almost even. Look at the record; In nil we have had twonty-three presidents. Seven iif thein were reelected, namely: Washington, Jelfeisoii, MudiBou, Monroe, Jackson, Lincoln ami Grunt. Two were renominated and failod of election—Martin Van Buron, whow .iB defeated by Harrison, und Mr. Cleveland, who was beaten by tho re­ public.n grandson of the groat Whig leader.

Six presidents who lived out their tonus ot office failed to get a reaomiua tion. 1 hey uro the two Adamses, Polk, Pierce Buchanan and Hayes. Three presidents died during thoir tlrst terms, namely—Harrison, Taylor, and Oarli Id.
