The nucient mound invites the spade and shovels and crowbars while tiie unwashed natives look on in surprise. Thrse scientists find yellow brielts still impressed with the name of Nebuchadnezzar, and they go down into the sarcophajrus of a monarchy buried more than two thousand years ajjo.

Hut one night, while honest citizens were asleep, hut all the saloons of suturmilla were in full blast, and at the Icing's castle they had filled tho tankards for the tenth time, and reeling and g iffiuving and hiccoughing ni'outul tlie fttate table were the rulers of the land, Gen. Cyrus ordered his besieging army to take shovels aud spades, and they diverted the river from its usual channel into •mother direction so that the forsaken bed of tho river became the path on which the besieged army entered. When the morning dawned tho conquerors were inside tlie outside trenches. Babylon hud fallen, and hence the sublime threnody of the text: "Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, thnt mighty city, for in one hour is thy judgment come." Hut do nations die? Oh. yes, there is great mortality among monarchies and republics. They are like individuals in tho fnct that they are born, they have a middlo life, they have u decease they have a cradle and a grave. Soiiiu of them are assassinated, some destroyed by tlieir own hand. Let me call the roll of some of tho dead civilizations and some of tho dead cities, and let some oun answer for them. Egyptian civilization, stand up. "Dead!" answer the ruins of Kuriuik and Luxor, and from seventy pyramids on the east, side of the Nile there comes up a great chorus, crying: "Bead, dead!" Assyrian empire, stand up aud answer. "Dead!" cry tlie charred ruins if Ninevah. After six hundred years of magnificent opportunity, dead. Is- aelitlsli kingdom, stand up.

Uort in nis mercy Interferes and through a purified ballot-box nnd a widespread public Christian sentiment the catastrophe be averted. This nation is about to go to the bn I lot-box to exercise the right of suffrage, and I propose to set before you the evils that threaten to 6*stroy the American government and to annihilate American institutions, nnd if (<od will help me I will show you before 1 get through the mod" in which each and everyone may do something to arrest that appalling calamity. And I shall plow the whole field. The first evil that threatens the annihilation of our American institutions is tlie fact that political bribery which once was considered a crime, has by many come to be considered a tolerable virtue. There is a legitimate use of money in elections, in the printing of political tracts, and in the hiring of public halls, and in the obtaining of campaign oratory; hut is there any homoueuhis who supposes this vast ainoiintof money now being raised by the political parties is going in u legitimate direction'.' The vast majority of it will go to buy votes. Hundreds and thousands of men will have set before them so much money for a republican vote, and so much money for n democratic vote, and the superior financial inducement will decide the action. You w-nt to know u-hich party will carry the doubtful stales day after to-morrow? 1 will tell you. The party that spends the most money. Tills moment, while I speak, tile peddlers carrying gold from Wall street, gold from Third street, gold from State street, anil gold from the Brewers' association, are in all the political headquarters of th" doubtful states, dealing out tlie infamous inducement. There used to be bribery, lint it held its head in shame, it was under tlie utmost secrecy that many years ago a railroad company bought lip the Wisconsin legislature und many other public officials in Unit state. Tlie gov ernor of the state at that time received fifty thousand dollars for bis signature. His private secretary received live thousand dollars. Thirteen members of the senate received seventy-five thousand dollars among lliein in bonds. Sixty members of the oth"i* house received from live thousand to ten thousand dollars each. The lieutenant governor received ten thousand dollars. The clerks of the house received from five thousand to ten thou umd dollars each. The bank comptroller received ten thousand dollars. Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars were divided among the lobbyists. You see, the railroad company wns very generous. Rut ull that wus hidden, und only through the severest scrutiny on the part, of a legislative committee was this iniquity displayed. Now, political bribery defies vou, dares you, is arrogant, and will probably decide the election next Tuesday. Another evil threaten'ug the destruction of American insCtutions W the solidifying of the sections against other. A solid north. A solid south. If this goes on we shall have, after a while, have u solid east against a solid west, we shallfliuve solid middle states against solid northern states, we shall have a solid Sew York against a solid Pennsylvania, and a suiM Oaio ; gainst solid ICentucl.y. It is t.verity-seven ears since the war-cloud, and yet at, every presidential election Uu! old antagonism is aroused. When Garfield icd und nil the states gathered around his casket in sympathy aud in tears, and us hearty telegrams of condolence amo from New Orleans and from Charleston us from Boston and Chic go. said to myself: "I think sectionalism sdead." But alas! no. The difficulty will never b> en led until ea-ih stattof he nation is split up Into two or three great political parties. This country can not exist unless it. exists us one body, the national capital the heart, sending out through all the arteries of communication warmth and life to tlie very extremities. This nation can not exist unless it exists us one family, aud you might us well have solid brothers against solid sisters, and solid bread-tray against a solid nidle. und a solid nursury against, a solid dining room; and you might ns well have solid eyes, and solid head against solid foot,. What is the interest of Georgia is tho interest of Massachusetts; what is the interest of New York is the interest of South Carolina. Does the Ohio river change its politics when It gets below Louisville? It is it possible for these sectional untagoii- i nis to continue for a great many years without permanent compound fracture. Another evil threatening tho destruction us our American Institutions is the low slate of public morals. What killed Babylon of my text'.' What killed I'hououiela? What killed Home? Tlieir own depravity; and the fraud und the drunkenness and the lechery which have destroyed other nations will destroy ours unless a merciful God prevent. To show you tlie low state of public morals, I have to call your attention to Hie tact that many men nominated for offlc.' In different states at different times are entirely unlit for tho positions for which they have boon iniiuiniiteil. They have no move ijunlillciilion for them than the wolf lias qualification to be professor of padourl theology in a Hock of slice]), or a blind mole has qualification to leuture a class of eagles ou optics, or than u vultaru bus qualification to ehiiperon a dove. The mere I pronunciation of some of their names makes a demand for carbolic auld and fuinlgutlon! Yet Cltrstliin men will follow right ou under the political standards. There Is enough otil.-uud-nut Itutn- I-.,,]..IH\KH in Auieric ,n cities to-day to bring down upon lliein tho wrath of that God who, on tho U-Hh of August, TO, burled llerculaiiuum and I'otupe.ll so deep In ashes that the eighteen hundred and thirteen subsequent years have not been able to complete tlie exhumation. There are iu somu of the Amurlean citlut? today whole blooks of houses which the authorities know to he infamous and yet by purchase they uru slleucud by lying abominations. As the Romans were after the Celts, and as the Normans were after the Britons, so there are evils after this nation which will attend its obsequies unless we first at- ' tend theirs. j Superstition tells of a inaxlne reptile, the cephaloptera, which enfolded und crushed a man of war, but it is no superstition when I tell you that the history of many of the dead nations proclaims to us the fact that our ship of state is in danger of being crushed by the cephaloptera of national depravity. Where is the Hercules to slay this hydra? Is it not time to speak by pen, by tongue, by ballot-box, by tlie rolling of the prison door, by hangman's halter, by earnest prayer, by Sinaitic detonation? The-son of King Croesus is said to have been dumb and to have never uttered 5 word until he saw his father being put to death. Then he broke the shackles of silence nnd cried out: "Kill not my father, Croesus!" When I see the eheatery and the wantonness and tlie manifold crime of this country attempting to commit patricide—yea, matricide upon our institutions, it seems to me that lips that heretofore have been dumb ought to break the silence with cunerous tones of fiery protest. I want to put all of the matter before you, so that every honest man and woman will know just how matters stand and what they ought to do if they vote, and what they ought to do if they pray. This nation is not going to perish. Alexander, when lie heard of the wealth of the Indies, divided Macedonia among the soldiers. Some one asked him what he had kept for | himself, and lie replied: "I am keeping | hope." And that jewel 1 keep bright and shining in my soul, whatever else I shall surrender. Hope thou in (iod. He will set back these oceanic tides of moral devastation. Do you know what is tho prize for which contention is made to-day. It is the prize of this continent. Never since, according to John Milton, when "Satan was hurled headlong flaming from the ethereal skies in hideous ruin and combustion down," have tlie powers of darkness been so determined to win this continent as they are now. What u jewel it is—a jewel carved in relief, the cameo of this planet! On one side of us tlie Atlantic ocean, dividing us from the worn-out governments of En- rope. On the other side the Pacific ocean, dividing ns from the superstitions of Asia. On the north of us the Arctic sea, which is the gymnasium in which tlie explorers and navigators develop their courage. A continent ten thousand and five hundred miles long, seventeen millions square miles, and all of it but about one-seventh capable of rieli cultivation. One hundred millions of population on this continent of North and South America—one hundred millions, and room for many hundred millions more. All Horn and all fauna, all metals, and all preeious woods, and all grains and all fruits. The Appalachian range the backbone and the rivers the ganglia currying life all through and out to tlie extremities. Isthmus of Darlen, the narrow waist of giant continent, all to be und one government, and all free and all Christian, and the scene of Christ's personal reign on earth if, according to tlie expectation of many good people, lie shall at last set up Ills throne In this world. Who shall have this hemisphere? Christ or Satan? Who shall have the shore o her inland seas, tho silver of her Ne viidus, the, gold of her Colorados. the telescopes of her observatories, the wheat of her prairies, the rice of her savannas, the two great ocean benches •—the one reaching from I (u Ilia's buy to Terra del Kuego, and the other from llelirlng strait ti Capo Horn—and all the moral and temporal and sph'itnnl. and ever lusting interests of a population vast beyond a computation save by Him with whom a thousand ye rs are us one day? Who shall havu the hemisphere? You und I will decide that, or help to decide it, by conscientious vote, by eurnest prayer, by maintenance of Christian Institutions, by support of great philanthropies, by putting body, mind and soul on tlie right side cf all moral, religious and national movements. Ah! it will not bo long before it will not make any difference to you or to me what becomes of this continent, so fur us earthly comfort is concerned. All we will of it will be seven feet by three, und that will take in tlie largest, and there will lie room and to spare. That is all of this country we will need very soon, the youngest of us. • But we have nn anxiety about tho welfare aud the happiness of the generations that are coming on, and it will bo a grand thing if, when tlie urchungePs trumpet sounds, we find that oar sepulchre, like the one Joseph of Ariimitlieu provided for Christ, is in the midst of a garden. By that time this country will he all Paradise, or all Dry Tortngas. Eternal (Ind, to Tliee we commit the destiny of this people! —When a man acknowledges that he ,vus in tlie wrong ho but avows that ho is wiser to-day tliuu ha was yesterday —l'opj.
