uuiv bo well to call attention lo our
country here and remind ourwlvesui
tlie true character and purpose of the
government under which we live.
Hie principles and condition ou
which this government wa organised
as a ctvtl society, aw set ion 11 in out
federal uud stale constitution. These
must be rewarded as I'limlamcntul. All

to determine whether this or that par
ticular enactment by legislative bodies,
be in accordance with the constitution
of any particular slate, or the federal
government, the peoplo directly or in
directly select men siimxwed to lie
learned in the law, to form supreme
courts to determine the (piestion; aud
all executive olllecrs are directly or in
directly under tlio control of the ma
jority of the tieoiile. Hence tho neces
sity for tho iieoplc, all the people, lieing
Intelligent ami virtuous. Intelligence
without virtue Is a power for evil,
while virtue without Intelligence Is
sure to le misled. This government of
ours cumiot bo curried ou, uccordiug lo
the original Intent, without. Intelli
gence, no more can 11 no none wiiuoui
Virtue, honesty, honor and a high sense
of justice uml fairness. No 0110 will
deny but tit this time the spirit of com
miiulsin and anarchy is abroad to tlie
land. It exists both openly and
hlddcnly, and Is founded in, and rcully
forms the foundation of many of the
societies, unlonsonlederatlous and I lie
like, now so numerous, with 11
tendency to multiply. Tlie members
of these organizations repudiate the
doctrine of communism In theory, und
yet every Intelligent and close observer
acquainted with human nature und
able to draw legitimate conclusions
from given premises may plainly sec
that while they repudiate tho theory,
they nro actually cherishing, un
consciously It may bo, the doctrine In
practlco. Let this ho continued and
sooner or later tho practlco will over
come tho theory, and we will have tho
thing In all Its hideous deformity.
' What then is tho remedy, or rather
tho preventive? Wo need to huve a
sound state of morula, conjoined .with
the spread of true Intelligence, that
tho two blended together may In
spire our public servants with a devo
tion to the peoples interests, and to tlie
perpetuation of our form of govern
ment In all Its grandeur and purity.
It Is said, und we suppose, truly said,
our country is now prosperous, but we
should remember that material pros
perity, If tending to moral degeneracy,
Is u curse, aud unless our moral Im
provement keep puce with our com
tnerchil prosperity, degeneracy will be
sure to ensue. It therefore becomes
necessary thut extra attention lie given
to tlie culture of sound morals, uud a
more faithful adherence to tlie princi
ples of constitutional liberty. H. H.
