The following discourse on "The <51o- rloiiH March" of the Cliiircli of Christ is selected for perusal by Rev. T. DoWitt Tnl mage's great A merlon n congregation thlo week. It is based on the text: Fair OB tho moon, clenr ns the sun, nnd t'-rrl- W« an an army with banners.—- Kolomon's SOUK. Tl.10. Tho fragrance of the spikenard, the finish of jewels, tho fruitfulnoss of orchards, the luxiirianee of gardens, the beauty of Heshbon fish pools, the dew of tho night, and the splendor of the morning—nil contribute to the Wellness of Solomon 's style when he eomes to speak of the glory of tho church. In contrast with his culogium of the church, look at the denunciatory things that are said in our day in re- gurd to it. If one stockholder become a cheat, does that destroy the whole company? If one soldier be a coward, does that condemn the whole army? And yet there are many in this day so unphllosophle, so illogical, so dishonest and HO unfair as to denounce the entire church of t'md because there arc- here and there bad men belonging to it. There are those who say that the church of (iod is not up to the spirit ol the day in which we live; but I have to tell you that, notwithstanding all the swift wheels, and the flying shiitlh and the lightning communirations. the world hns never yet been able to keep up with the church. As high as (Tod is above man. so high is the church of God—higher than all human institu tions. From her lamp the best discov erics of the world have been lighted. The best of our inventors have believed In the Christian religion---the. Fultnns, the Morses, the Whiineys. the l'errys nnil the Livingstones. She has owned the best of the telescopes and f.eyden Jars, and while infidelity and atheism have gone blindfolded aim me; the most startling discoveries that were about to be developed, the earth and the air and the sea have made quick and niugiiifl cent responses to Christina philosophers. The world will not. be up to the church of Christ until the day when all merchandise has become honest merchandise, and all governments have become free governments, and nil nations evnngelized nations, and the last, deaf ear of spiritual death shall be broken open by the million-voiced shout of nations horn in a day. The church that Nebuchadnezzar tried to Irani in the furnace, and Darius to tear to pieces with the Hons, and Lord Claverhmiso to cut with the sword, has gone on, wading 1 the Hoods and enduring the fire, until the deepest barbarism, and the fiercest cruelties, and the blackest superstitious have been competed to look to the east, crying: "Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as un army with banners?" Yet there are people who nrenshamed to belong to the church of Christ, and if you ask them whether they are in such associations they say: "Yes, I sometimes attend the church;" instead of realizing tho fact that there is no honor compared with the honor of be ing a member of the church of Clod, I look back with joy to tho most honored moment of my life when, in the old country meeting house, the minister of Christ unnounced ray name us a follower of tho Lord. You who uro floating about in the world seeking for better associations, why do you not join yourself to some of the churches? An old sea captain was riding in the cars toward Philadelphia, and a young man sat down beside him. He said; "Young man, where are you going?" "I am going to Philadelphia to live," replied the young man. "Have you letters of introduction?" asked tho old captain. "Yes," said the young mau, and he pulled some of them out. "Well," said tho old sea captain, "haven't you a church certificate?" "Oh, yes," replied the young man; "I didn't suppose you would want to look at that." "Yes," said the sea captain, "I want to look at thut. As soon as you get to Philadelphia present it to some Christian church. 1 urn an old sailor, and I have beon up and down in the world, and it's my rule as soon as I get into port to fasten my ship fore and aft to the wharf, although ifc may cost a little wharfage, rather thnn have my ship out in the stream floating hither and thither with the tide." O, men and women, by tho tides of frivolity and worldlluess swept this way and swept that way, seeking for associations and for satisfactions for tho immortal soul, come into tho ehureh of Jesus Christ. Lush fust to her. She Is a pillar and tho ground of truth. I propose to speak of tho threefold glory of the church, as it is described in the text: First, "Fair as the inoou," God, who has determined that everything shall be beautiful In its season, has not left night without charm. The moon rules the night. The stars are only set. as gems in her tiara. Sometimes before tho sun has gone down the moon mounts her throne, but it is after nightfall that she sways her undisputed scepter over island and continent, river and sea. Under her shining the plainest maple leaves become shivering silver, the lakes from shore to shore look like shining mirrors, and the ocean under her glance with great tides comes up panting upon tho beach, mingling, ns it wore, foam and fire. Under tho witchery of tho moon, the • awful steeps lose their ruggudness, and tho ohasins their terror. Tho poor man blesses God for throwing so cheap a light through tho broken window-pane . of his cabiu, and to tho sick it seems like :»light from the other shore that bounds this great deep ot human pain ; and woe. If the sun be like a song, full . and loud and poured forth from brazen • Instruments that till Heaven and earth - with harmony, the moon is plaintive «tnd sad, standing beneath the throne of a Saviour's nscenslon, and pours that light on palace and dungeon, on squalid heathenism and elaborate skepticism, on widow's tears and martyr's robo of flame, on weeping penitence and loud-mouthed scorn. She is tho only institution to-day that gives any light to our world. Into her portal the poor come and get sympathy of a once pillowlcss Christ, the bereaved come and see the bottle in which God saves all our tears, and tho captives come, and on the sharp corners of her altars dash oft their chains and the thirsty come and put their cup under the "Rock of Ages," which pours forth from its smitten side living water, sparkling water, crystallino water, from under the throne of God and the Lamb, ltlessed tho bell that calls hor worshippers to prayer. Messed the water in which her members arc baptized, lilossed tho wiue that glows in her sacramental cups. ltlessed tho songs on which her dovotlons travel up and the angels of God travel down. As the moon goes through tho midst of the ronring storm-clouds unflushcd and unharmed, and comes out calm nnd beautiful on the other side, so tho church of God has gone through all tho storms of this world's persecution and come out uninjured, no worse for tho fact that Robespierre cursed it and Voltaire caricatured it, and Tom Puino sneered at it, and all tho forces of darkness have bombarded it. Not like some baneful comet shooting across the city, scattering terror and dismay among the nations, but above tho low howling night of tho world's wretchedness tho Cl»istiim church hns made her mild way, "fair as tho moon " I take a step further in my subject— "Clear as the sun." Altera season of storm or fog, how you are thrilled when the sun comes out at noonday! The mists travel up hill above hill, mountain abovo mountain, until they are sky lost. Tho forests arc full of chirp and buzz and song; honey-makers on the log, bird's beak pounding the bark; the chatter of the squirrel on tho rail, the call of a hawk out of tho clear sky, make you thankful for tho sunshine which makes all tho world so busy and so glad. Tho sumo sun which in the morning kindled conflagrations among the castles of cloud, stoops down to paint tho lily white, and the buttercup yellow, and tho for-got-me not blue, What can resist tho sun? Light for voyager on tho deep; light for shepherds guarding tho flocks afield; light for the poor who have no lamps to burn; light for tho downcast and the weary; light for aching eyes and burn ing bruin and consuming captive; light for the smooth brow of childhood and the dim vision of tho octogenarian; light for queen's coronet and sewing I gill's needle. "Let there be light." I "Now," says my text, "Who is she that lookoth forth clear as the sun?" Our answer is, tho Church. You havo been going along a road before daybreak, and on one side you thought you saw a lion, and on the other side you thought you saw a goblin of the darkness, but when the sun came out you found the.so wore harmless apparitions. And it is tho great mission of the church of Jesus Christ to come forth "clear as the sun," to illumine all earthly darkness, to explain, as far as possible, all mystery, and to make the world radiant in its brightness; and that which you thought was an aroused lion is found out to bo a slumbering lamb; and the sepulehercd gates of your dead turn out to bo tho opening gates of Heaven; and that which you supposed was a flaming sword to keep you out of Paradise is an angel of light to beckon you in The lamps on her altars will cast their glow on your darkest pathway and cheer you until, far beyond tho need of lantern or light-house, you are safely anchored within the veil. O, sun of the church! shine on until there is no sorrow to soothe, no tears to wipe away, no shackles to break, no moro souls to be redeemed. Ten thousand hands of sin have attempted to extinguish tho lamps on her altars, but they are quenchless; and to silence her pulpits, but the thunder would leap and the lighning would iliunc. The church of God will come to full meridian, and in that day all tho mountains of tho world will be sacred mountains touched with tho glory of Calvary, and all streams will How by tho mount of God like cool Siloam, and all lakes bo radiant with Gospel memories like Gennesarot, and all island of tho sea be crowned with apocalyptic visions like Patmos, and all cities bo sacred as Jerusalem, and all gardens luxuriant as Paradise, with God walking in tho cool of the day. Then tho chorals of grace will drown out all the anthems of earth. Then the throne of Christ will overtop all earthly authority. Then tho crown of Jesus will outllume all other coronets. Sin destroyed. Death dead. Hell defeated. Tho ehureh triumphant. All the dark­ nesses of sin, all the darknesses of trou- blo, all the darknesses of earthly misery, hieing themselves to their dens. "Clear as the sun! Clear as the sun!" Further, "Terrible as an army with banners." I take one moro step in this subject and say that if you wore placed for tho defense of a feeble town, and a great army were seen coming over the hills with flying ensigns, then you would be ahlo to get somo idea of the terror that will strike the hearts of the enemies of God when tho church at luBt marches on like "an array with banners." You know thcro is nothing that excites a soldier's enthusiasm so much an an old flag. Many a man almost doad, catching u glimpse of the national ensign, has sprung to his feet and started again into battle. Now, my friends, I don't want you to think of tho church of Jesus Christ as a defeated institution, us tho victim of infidel sarcasm, something to be kicked uud ouffed and trampled on through all ages of tho world. It is "ah army with banners." It has an inscription and colors such »s never stirred the hearts of any soldiery. We have our banner of recruit, raid on it is in scribed: "Who Is on tho Lord's side?" Our banner of defiance, and on It is in scribed: "The guta of holl shall .lot i .. . . flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers nnd spiritual wickedness in high places: hut if God bo for us, who can bo against as? Come on, yo troops of the Lord! Fall into line! Close up tho ranks! On through burning sands and over frozen mountain tops, until tho whole earth surrenders to God. He made it; Ho redeemed it; lie shall have it They shall not be trampled with hoofs; they Bhall not be cut with sabers; they shall not bo crushed with wheels; thoy shall not be cloven with battle-axes, but tho marching nnd tho onset nnd tho victory will be none tho less decisive for that. With Christ to lead us, and Heaven to look down upon us, and angels to guard us, nnd martyr spirits to bend from tholr thrones, nnd the voice of Qod to bid us forward into tho combat, our enemies shall fly like chaff in tho whirlwind, nnd all tho towers of Heaven ring becauso tho day is ours. I divldo this army with banners into two wings—tho American wing nnd the European wing. The American wing will march on across tho wilds of tho west, over tho tablelands, and come to tho ocean, no moro stopped by the. Pacific than tho Israelites were stopped by tho Red sea, marching on until tho remaining wallB of China will fall before this army with banners, and cold Siberia will bo turned to the warm heart of Christ, nnd over lofty Himalayan peaks shall go this army with banners until it halts at Palestine. Tho F.uropeau wing will march out to meet it, and Spanish superstition shall be overcome, aud French infidelity shall bo conquored; and over the Alps, with moro than Hannibal's courage, shall march that army with banners, nnd up through the snows of Russia, vaster in multitude than tho hosts that followed Napolcan into tho conflict And Hungary and Poland, by tho blood of their patriots and by tho blood of Christ, shall at last bo free. And crossing into Asia, the law shall again bo proclaimed on Sinai, and Christ In tho person of His ministers, will again preach on Olivet, and pray in Gethsemane, and exhibit His lovo on Calvary. And then tho army will halt in front of tho other wing, the twain having conquered all the earth for God. History tells us that one day the armies of Xerxes shouted all at once, and the vociferation was so mighty that the birds flying through the air dropped as though they were dead. Oh, what a shout of triumph when all the armies of earth and all tho armies of Heaven shall celebrate the victory of our King—all at once and all together: "Hallelujah! for the Lord God omnipo, tent reiguoth. Hallelujah! for tho kingdoms of this world havo become tho kingdoms of our Lord Jesus Christ, When tho Prussian army came back from their war thoy were received in 180(5 at the gates of Berlin, and a choir stood above the gates, and as tho first regiment advanced aud came to tho gates the choir, in music, asked them what right they had to enter there. And then tho first regiment, in song replied, telling over the stories of their conflicts and their victories. Then they marched in, and all tho city was full of gladness and triumph. Hut, oh, tho greater joy when the army with ban ners shall come up to the gates of our King! It will be choir to choir, music to music, hosanna to hosannu, hallelujah to hallelujah. Lift up your heads, yu evorlasting gates, and let them come in. Then will bo spread tho bnnquets of eternal victory, and the unfallon ones of Heaven will sit at it, and all the ransomed of earth will conic in and celebruto tho jubilee with unfading garlands on their brow telling of earthly conquests. All the walls of that celestial mansion will be. u-glittcr with shields won in victorious battle, and adorned with tho banners of God that were curried in front of tho host. Harp shall tell to harp tho heroism in which tho conquerors won their palm, and tho church that day will ait queeu at the banquet. Her wan derlngs over, hor victories gained. Christ shall riBO up to introduce hor to all the nations of Heavon, and as she pulls aside her veil and looks up into the face of her Lord the King, Christ shall exclaim: "This is she that looketh forth as tho morning, fair as tho moon, clear as tho sun and terrible as an army with banners." 1 ijBNMRAb NOT MS tho At Bin Daniel Wilson, president of I'oionto university, died Suuduy.

I he democratic papers lire vulieiuonl in the denunciation of the republican parly for enacting a taritr la.v under which protection was nlToril od o manufiicturorH. 'I bore is no lovo for workmen in the hearts of these editors; a desire to servo party interests alone actuates them." Tho leader ol organized labor disposes of tho democratic hn'i-bub over Homestead and tho McK uley bill, in one Bontenco: "Tho MoKinloy bill redneeil the duly on tho arlicl s manufactured at Homestead, and tho demoer lie papers in lis Horting that the trouble at that point is duo to tho MoKinloy bill, are but con (looming tho very tiling that they llieun selves advocate and on which thoy base their claim to po .ver- u reduction of tho tarilT."

"iho explanation in regard to tho presii'it lo.v prices in wool," said Col. (Smith, "is not hart! to make, and is a poin'. v. hicb al , especiilly you farmers and producers of wool, ought to thoroughly understand. Iho world's product of wool in 1.-01 was more than lnO.OOtl.000 pounds more than it. was in Is!) 1 , v. hich was lar greater than the increase in demand nnd consumption, and as a matter of course, prices wont down. "Any one can fie>e by studying the ipJOBtioi that the protection given the wool growers lias boon of special value tothem. All of the don 1 ,t, or unrest, or whatever you may call it, as touching tho wool duty in tho McKinley law, is found I,nidi g niou who are acquainted with the facts " "Ho.v did this overproduction affect prices in this country as compared uiili freo tride F.ngliiiid'/" was the ncxt-iiues- I iJi; asked I'l'.K'l.s IN AMKUU'A AND IXIlOl'li.

Smith, and to get at. an explicit understanding of it. it inly necessary to take into account the. comparative prices of wool ill IbiB ml other countries to sue whether the Inly is of any hoi edit to the American inner. 'I he United Stales is not the •tily county whom low prices of wool vo pu-vailed for the p si two years, lie supply of wool in all foreign Connies has been much greater than the demand during the past year. Iho dif- erenco between supply and demand WIIB 0 groat thai, in England the price of wool declined fully 2o per cent , while the ileclino in Ibis country has beon from 10 to 12 per cent. As an illustration of ibis fact, take tho comparative prices of competing wools in this country and England, for that will toll tho whole story. Here n short time ago, on iho very due Hint Ohio XX lino clothing wool was selling in our markets for 31 cents a pound, tho corresponding grade of foreign wool was soiling in London for 18 cents; while.the best Mun'ana XX was fetching 01 cents in Pbiladel- phi', tho comparative grade of foreign wool will sell for 37 cents in Engl,old."

"Are there any proofs that, tho vaiia- ions in the turill" or duty on wool during that time had any special inlluoi oo upon theshoep industry in this country V WHAT TIIK DUTY ON WOOL HAS HONK: "There uro some, and thoy are pretty emphatic," said Co .

In 1871 tho total num 1 or of Bheop in the United S ates was :U,8"il,(XXJ, and under tho influence ot iho protective duty of 1807 tho number inei'ouaed to 50,000,000 in 1881.
