SOME ACCOUNT OF THE "YANKEE OF
At) audience, which nearly filial the
lecture room of St. John's Presby
terian Church (Dr. Scott's), assembled
last evening to listen to the lecture of
Dr. Hepburn on Japan. The lecturer
is a physician, formerly of New York,
who has spent the last sixteen years
of his life In Japan, partly in the pur
suit of his professional business and
partly as a missionary.
THE JAPANESE AS FARMERS.
He thought there wore no better
farmers in the world than the Japanese.
Although the land has been cultivated
for three thousand years, it still pro
duces a line crops as any in the coun
try. Three different erojis have fre
tucntly been raised one alter the other
on the same piece of ground in one
year. Timber for the purpose of Are
wood is as regularly cultivated as any
other crop. Oak and chestnut are
their favorite firewood, and the stumps
being left, project a new growth, which
is cut down in a lew years. Some of
these stump1 look as though they were
one hundred years old.
THE NEW DISPENSATION,
The speaker enumerated the four
Classes of society in Japan as follows:
The military, or patrician which is
also the ruling class; the farmers or
peasantry, the artisans and the mer
chants. He then briefly sketched the
history of the country ir.oiu the over
throw' of the feudal system ot the
Daimios, resulting in the establishment
of the government hy the Tycoon, to
the recent rcliellion, which ended in
the overthrow of the Tycoon and the
establishment of the government hy
the Mikado. The latter, he said, was
due to the contact with the most cul
tivated and enlightened nations, the
people, of which formed a consid
erable element in the population.
This was the death blow to the old
form of government. The whole form
of government has been changed since.
In proof of this the speaker referred to
the modeling of a judiciary system
after the most approved modern form;
tne lessened resiect paid to the Em
peror; the adoption ot lire arms instead
of the bow and arrow ; the building of
war vessels, establishment of foundries
and machine shops, factories, railway,
telegraphic linos and lighthouses bi
trotlactioii of printing presses, a postal
system ; the changing of their calendar
to conform to that of the Europeans,
the founding' of almshouses ana hos
pitals for the ioor, and colleges and
academies for the higher branches of
education ; the 5,000 common schools
scattered throughout the country, the
establishment of a national currency,
the contraction of the enormous na
tional debt, and many other evidences
of an advanced cLvlMxatlon-all of
which has taken place since the ports
were thrown open to foreigners. These
things have not grown out of any pro
gressive spirit of the messes, but have
lieen initiated and carried forward by
the patrician element. 'Hie great body
of the nation lias been little affected by
them. They are opposed to the inno
vations because It tends to their im
poverishment by leading to the im
position of heavy taxes on them to
maintain the increased expenses of the
THE MISSIONARY WORK.
The general Impression that a mis
sionary may now go wherever he
pleases in Japan andpreach the gospel
as freely as in this country is far from
the truth. Japan cannot be said to be
open to the preaching of the gospel as
much as India, Syria, or even China.
It is only in Yokohama, Yedo and
about half a dozen other ports tliat the
missionary is permitted to go, and
even in tliem he is not allowed to live
or rent a building fbr any purpose out
side of the limit assigned for the resi
dence of foreignors without special
permits from the Japanese Govern
ment, and such permission the speaker
had never known to be granted. The
restriction, it is hoped, will be remov
ed upon tbe revision of the treaty
which is soon to take place, A mis
sionary may go into the country any
where within a rodius of twenty-five
miles from the open port and stay a
week at a time, and may do a little
toward preaching and teaching in that
way if lie can get a passport ,' but at
best mislotiaiies aro much trammeled
in their labors.
THE LABORERS IN THE FIELD,
There are now in Japan aliont thirty
Protestant missionaries all Ameri
cans but two. Seven of them repre
sent the Presbyterian Church four tin?
Dutch Reformed, five the Congrega
tionai, four the American Episcopal,
two the Baptist, two the English Epis
copal, and two the American Metho
dist. Four of them are ladies from
the Women's Missionary Society of
this country. These figures were com
piled about a year ago. before the
speaker left. The missionary force
has been increased somewhat since.
Two of lite missionaries arc physicians.
THE FIRST CHOUGH.
In Yokohama n Christian Church
lias been organized through the labor
ot the Presbyterian and Reformed
Dutch missionaries. It lias about filty
members, several of whom are women.
It was organized after the Presbyterian
order, having two Elders and two
Deacons, andis under the pastoral eai c
of a Presbyterian and Dutch Reformed
missionary. This is theonly Protest
ant Church in Japan. The mission
aries have agreed to organize their
churches on the Union basts, to be
culled by no other name than the
Church of Christ, and to liave no sec
tarian teachings therein Thus prac
tically uniting their forces and eschew
in all sectarian strife. .V. F . Chronicle.
The True Distinction. Who
would think of condemning a worthy
merchant because he discovered in his
employ a dishonest clerk? Sympathy.
rather than blame, would be extended
to him, and every fair-minded man
would approve the prompt dismissal,
and, it the law was violated, the speedy
punishment of the offender. Why,
then, should our opponents denounce
the Republican party because it dis
covers among its thousands of officials
a few exceptional eases of dishonesty ?
The party repudiates tho nets of dis
honesty, and the people put their stamp
of condemnation, not only upon the
offence, but uion the offender. No
Kct of dishonesty, or official guilty of
crime; no questionable or iniquitous
measures have ever been condoned or
protected by the Republican party.
As soon as known, an earnest protest
has gone up against tliom, find thoe
Involved have oeeu called to a strict
account. This is all that cair be done.
Individuals are liable to be deceived.
A party can rise no higher nor better
divine the future than the individuals
who compose it. As long as the party
seeks to detect and punish the rascals
who deceive it. and ir e due caution in
the selection of its public servants, we
shall have an abiding faith in it. We
call upon Republicans everywliere to
select tor office the very best men In
the ranksofthe party, and to weed
out evorv official that shows himself
unworthy of public confidence.

Panics, like extensive conflagrations,
have small beginnings. A spark has
within it the power to lay In ashes tlie
largest city. If ted by combustible
material, it soon becomes a flame, be
fore which iron melts and granite
crumbles into dust. So with panics.
Words of suspicion are the sparks tliat
leap to financial conflagrations. Dis
trust is breathed from one to another ;
instead of being guicted by calm ad
vice, It Is fed by popular excitement.
Those who have least to lose arc the
loudest In their croakings over coining
failures. A rush is made to sacrifice
stock that is both profitable and safe;
it is thrown upon the market along
with fancy and worthless stock. A
sense of Insecurity seizes the buyei,
and the resnlt is, no sales, or ruinous
sacrifices of stock that only needed the
restoration of confidence to be worth
more than ever. When a fire breaks
out. efforts are made to confine it
within its original limits. But the
breaking out. of distrust in a commu
nity is tlie signal, not for united efforts
to confine Ft within its legitimate
bounds, or its suppression, bnt for a
general rinh to feed the flame by gos
sip, ill-omened prophecy, or ground
less rumors of some indefinable calam
ity. A rumor starts, affecting the
financial standing of some bank official.
It matters little whether it be true or
false ; the whisper is soon tranr formed
into a storm. A sudden run is made
upon the bank ; then upon other banks,
until the whole community is in a fer
ment of excitement. If tlie banks
have facilities for prompt conversion
of securities into cash, the storm may
blow over; bnt if distrust is wide
spread, money is locked up or held for
self-protection, and bunks that are
perfectly sound are driven by sheer
necessity to suspend payment. No
reasonable man can expect a banker to
pay interest on deposits and keep
those deposits locked in his sate, ready
to be returned without a moment s
notice ; ret men who elnim to be rea
sonable, act at times as it they thought
this to l tlie ease. Banks pay Inter
est upon money, because they can loan
the money received fbr a higher rate
ot interest than they pay. They take
securities for money loaned. To con
vert these into money requires time;
and those having deposits should be
considerate enough It) grant it. Tlie
best bank in the country may be forced
to suspend payment, in the face of an
unexpected and unreasonable demand,
especially if popular excitement lias so
unsettled values as to render tlie con
version of securities into cash almost
impossible. Panics should be stopped
at the momentofthclr inception. Men
of ability and judgment should unite
to quiet popular distrust. Confidence
should be strengthened by every legit
imate i leans. Depositors, unless they
have good reasons tor demanding pay
ment. Should assist, rather than cripple,
the bank whose credit and standing
they dtpmd upon. Exceptional cases
of failure may occur at any time, but
a ianie, such as recently swept over
the financial centres of the country,
ought to lie an impossibility. We
trust that the press of the laud will
exeH its powerful iulluenee towards
maintaining u healthy state of public

A lady was recently reading to her
child, a boy of seven years, a story of
a litlie fellow whose father was taken
sick and died, whereupon tlie young
ster set hiui-elf diligently at work to
assist in supporting himself nnd his
mother. When slie had finished the
story, the following dialogue ensued:
Mother Now, my little son, if pa
was to die. wouldn't you work to help
liny (Not relishing the idea ot work).
Why, ma, what for? Ain't we got a
house to live in?
Mother Oh yes, my child ; bnt we
can't eat the house, you know.
Hoy Well, ain't we got flour and
sugar and other things in the store
Mother Certainly, my dearj but
they will not last long, what then?
Hoy Well, ma, ain't there enough
to eat till you can get another husband?
Ma gave it up.
