more dreadful than the fabled hydra that
lurked in the lake of Lerna. Thelth iu
tho streets and dwellings of -the cities
used to be festct Jug sources of diseases
and death. Hut draining sewers have
closed these sources of disease. " v
The era of medical science was yet in
the future, at the bcgiunlug of this cen
tury, aud did little to remedy the ravages
of disease. Depletion and the exhaus
tion of the system was generally the first
step in the treatment, nnd was often soon
followed by death. But later years have
witues.aed uupnrnlled progress in this
noble science. Not only have effective
remedies for disease been discovered, and
successful methods of administering tliem
beeu devised, but sanitary rules aud reg
ulations have beeu patiently studied out,
aud published to the world, thus rcduc- s
ing or destroying the very causes of dis
ease. Almost every year, and sometimes
ofteu iu the year, we liud iu the hands of
skillful physicians, new and improved
iustruments for discovering the nature of
diseases, for calculating, their virulence
and power, or for administering in the -best
way the most approved remedies.
To no class is the benefit more conspicu
ous than r.mong the children. The evil
sanitary surroundings, which iu former
days warred against the immature
strength of childhood Itae been improv
ed, thus giving thein a fairer chance at
life. By all theso improvements the
chances of liviug a loug, comfortable aud
useful life have been greatly augmented. .
There has also beeu au- iucreascd econ

them falling victims in the prime of their
manhood. Fox, Pitt, Castlercagh, O'jCon

Clay, Randolph, Jackson, and hosts of oth

kill his man. Under the enlightened in

by a healthier moral sentiment everywhere,

thousand years, and a thousand years as
one day, has put our race to the test at
niauv times, and in different circum
stances, and the uuiform result hitherto
has been temporay progress, and then de
cay. The race has net proved itself ca
pable of sustained advancement and per
mauent excellence. With the universal
diffusion of knowledge, with the purify
iug power of the Gospel, with the in
dwelling of the Divine Spirit, and with
God's provideutial caro and direction,
there is no conceivable limit to the at
tainments men may make. But if this
generation should prove recreant to the
trust committed to them; should, through
pride and self-sufficiency, forget God and
his law, then who knows but all this ex
that will hurl a mass of two thousand
pounds of iron five miles with unerring
precision, seem to predict terrible slaugh
ter in the coming age. But the fact is the

hand fight, that we read of in tho Books
of the Kings, and the Chroutcles of Israel
that slaughters whole armies iu a day
The ertection of the implements of
slaughter renders war lets frequent, and
leas prolonged. It is not the slaughter
of the battle field that is the great evil of
war, but the privation, the sickucss, the
fatigueing march, the dreary hospital, aud
the waste of resources. Iu his six mouths'
campaign against Hussia in 1812 Napoleon
lost over half a million of men. But it
was uot iu the battle of Borodino that
they were slaughtered, though one hun
dred t lion sand men fell on that blood v
field. It was bnnger, aud thirst, aud ex
posure, and fatigue, that slew the other
four houdred thousand.

characterized by a lengthened average of

The great nobUs went daily to see him

the people were taxed, crudit-d and beaten
until life was a burden, 'or was the con
dition of the French people worse tban
that of the rest of Continental Europe. Is
fact, if we may credit DeTocqucville, it was
better. Every sovereign, whether King,
Prince. Elector, Duke, Uoe or Count, with
slight exceptions, regarded his vassal as
his property, and treated them with harsh
ness and severity, up to the period of the
French Itevolution. Then the bugle, blat
of liberty was sounded in all cars, and the
people of Europe n ver forgot it. After
depntim had passed over that bloody
chasm it never . displayed the fame vigor
again. -The price was a terrible one, but
the enfranchisement of the European peo
ple was worth it all.
