At the recent eolebrntioii of the
Fourth of July at WoodMock, Conn.,
Mr. Mural llaltad delivenil a
(triking addre, to which he gave
the title of the "I'rwrvation of the
People' Inheritance." It could Ite
more aeeurately dexcrilxd a an ac
count of the rtH klcKii way in whieli
mankind in general, and American
in Ntrticular, had squandered, and
were continuing tn uander, their
inhrritancc. lu sR'aking of the de
cline of certain nation, Mr. Hal
Mead xaid:
The land have lieen wauled, the
forcxtx are no more, the xoil thai
once made fruitful hill ami bloom
ing valley i at the bottom of the
eaa, and the xlream that watered
the iieopliil plain are loft in the
and that are the tomb of the jiro
llignlc who have erihed. The
element of ioibility. the founda
tion of Ktsteritv. are gone, never to
Ik- restored, amf I boe cancers of the
earth, the dexerlx, are eating attay
more and more that which xbould
xuitaiu the generation to come.
Coming down to our own country,
the x'iiker referred to the exhaust
ed fertility of tobacco land ami
wheat Held?, to the extermination of
fix) fish and noble game and water
fowl; particularly to our vanquish
ing forct.
The wood havu been torn from
the mountain, and brook have de
parted beeauxc the spring have
el-axed to How, and, when not dwin
dled almoxl to dual bed, the ancient
mill Mtream are roaring I'kkkIx, for
the xlojx' of the ridge are bared
and the rainfallx ruxli from them a
over roof of xlate, the billable are
plowed up and down, preparing gut
ter to feed the freshet with the
noil that i far more precioux, in the
eye of thoe who have been taught
the art of xeeing, than the precioux
inetnlx It ix the pasxinn and pride
of the average American to xmite
tlx- tree and xhoot the bird and
xlaughtcr the lat of our ruuiiim;
garni and if there are law for the
protection of trees in park, or gamu
law to nive thu ipiail and xquirrel,
or to prevent xcouring the river
with xeinx out of eaon, ami to pro
vide 1'ndi ladder ami al-olibh llxb

tottering dt-xpolif of worn-out

terminated, a noble rnce munlered,
mo that they are hardly enough to
xupply mtiHeum; and if there i a
moon- left in Maine he ha been
accidentally xpared. and must lie
pursued by the hunter w ith reniore
lexx fury to xhed hi bliM! to the
tlual maacre. It i a crime to cut
down the wood on a mountain, a
crime to hecdlexsly kindle lire to
burn forel; but oitr leople have
no realizing acinic of the wort, and
sneer at the Swia and Hermann,
who re.iiire three Mrmitto fell onu
tree. In New York there inlrug
pie that seems hoclcx to prcxerve
the remnant of the once majetic
and alway romantic Adirondack
wilderness. In our new state the
statesmen dare not stand againxt
the timU-r thieve.
lu xome part of the adilre Mr.
1 1 alxtead rhetoric wax rather too
intense for xcientillc accuracy; but,
after all, the real ting of the indict
ment i in it truth. To the teak-i-r'i
hox'ful spirit the establishment
of tixh hatcheries by the government,
the effort to protect the seal of Meh
ring Sea. and tin- reservation of the
s;eiioia grove were act which gave
promise of a time coming when more
serious thought would he given by
our nation to the preservation of it
heritage, lie noted, loo, a hoiM-ful

the greatest diligence i shown in
the manufacture, it is lelieved that
at least two year will elapse lieforu
the who'e million force of the empire
will be provided with the weaMJU.
This would not prevent Itussia
from going to war in the meantime,
a no fewer than tiUi.iKK) men will
have the rille w ithin this year. The
rcjiort that France ami llussia had
virtually agreed that in thu event of
a victory over (iermany they would
have ."-ciiicswig reauuexed to iit-n-mark
ha caiixed considerable com
ment in Merlin, where the war feel
ing ha I -cen mounting high for
ome days past. Thin rumor, how
ever, ha called to jiuhlic attention
other rumor of a similar nature re
garding the Iriplu alliance. It wa
stated recently, mi high authority,
at Vienna, that ono of the unwritten
argument of the triple alliance was,
in the event of success in a conti
nental war, to disable Russia for
ever, by divesting the eiuiiire of
Poland. Finland and the Maltic pro
vinces, and couijiclliug the cxar to
abandon St. Petersburg for Moscow,
France at the same time to be com--lled
to give up Nice and Corsica
to Italy. Thcwt arrangement are
understtxsl to be merely provisional,
but the fact that they are talked of
shows the deliU-rate way in which
KuroH-au nations are preparing for
the gigantic struggle

Kussia now, as well as France,
ha the only original "holy coat,"
and each coat i a genuine ax the
othrr. Kusia, besides, has a "holy
nail" preserved from the tragedy near
Jerusalem; ami thus far the present
(ireek Christianity bus a slight ad
vantage over Latin Christianity in
the matter of "genuine relics." Thu
latter, however, has heretofore bad
immense ndvantage in osxessioti of
isirtions of the tnu- cross, of which

The quantity of relics of these kinds
in the world is regulated in differ
ent times and countries according
to the greater or less prevalence of
pious credulity. The demand for
the marvelous and miraculous al
ways create the supply. The crit

Disapsiintment is expressetl in
Canada with the result of tho On

recent censuses in the I'niled State;
saying that while the opulntimi of
the latter country ha doubled it
elf every thirty years that of Can
ada ha not doubled itscifin forty
years, and adds: "The perccntauu
of increase in the imputation of Can
