We sometimes think If there were a few more of them, it wquld be better tor us all. The age has become very practical, very and disposed at times to plunge the "maddening recklessly Into throng's Ignoble strlfe.'Hhe only apparent objects la view being factional domination at the expense of good order, proper behavior and a due regard for the rights and positions of others. It is of course necessary that there should be parties, as, since men cannot see alike on public questions, it is as well that their respective views find expression by means ot organization and discipline; acd there can be no parties without systematic effort and united and zealous membership. Bnt belonging to a party does not properly exclude all thought of and regard for opposing par: ids membership, nor should it be permitted to become the paramount consideration. Partisanship, in a few words, should be looked upon as a means to an end, not as the end itself. lint tbe average politician of today is not disposed to so regardMt; tnccess for bis party at;any cost, do matter what issues or persons are presented nor what the lino of policy adopted may be, is the order of tbe hour jSacd with such negative patriotism in vogue, the vision of the Father of bis Country which appears before tbe mentaK gaze when some great occasion in which he was a conspicuous figure Is properly observed, acts as a healthful and stimulating reminder ot the primal duty belonging to the land and tbe institutions given to us by him as a sacred patri- com- pleted when the polls closed, but directly there was no election" ol Chief Magistrate and his lieutenant at all, electors."

Washington was not a partisan, lie knew no divisions of society within the territory of the United States.' He was simply a patriot, regarding the political welfare or misfortune of one as the common concern of ali. He would be neither a dictator nor a ruler, nor would he permit a people prone througheheer gratitude and unselfish devotion to make bis Presidential d r term with bis 'natural life, to have their way; he would not have a third term and gave the politicians of that day to under stand that his example was intended as a rule for the future guidance of his people, thus sublimely Illustrating the intense republicanism of the man and the nDscliishness necessary to the proper performance of a high public duty. It is not insisted that things should in an respects be now as they 'were then, for the times have changed acd we have changed with them. It is. however, claimed that the landmarks should bo maintained; that the prin ciples established then should not be destroyed; and that the coble cx amples set by those who loved thlr country for their country's sake be npneia ana tnemcated so long as our institutions shall last. Let the celebration of Washington's inauguration be a grand and imposing affair, one worthy tbe subject and the people who observe it.

On the 4th of October the Qnicago limes published an article under flaming headlines entitled 'Tha Birth of Mormonism." It is before us, and we would have inserted it in full were it not that our space Is limited. It would in complete shape make the an nexed communication of Mr. Odlnga more intelligible, although it is suf flclently clear without it. A fair idea of the character of the Times' article may, however, be formed by a concise allusion to Its constituents. Its basis is claimed to be statements made to a reporter of that paper.as well as some writing by Mr. William Hyde, who, as In Mr. Odinea's corresDon shown v.w mn tuuo nutu isse wi arc designated the electoral lived at Palmyra, New York, at dence, college, uu wueu organized they proceed for- the time tbe plates from which mally to vote for a President an3 Vice the Book of Mormon was trans-state- d, a resiuant oi tiie United! were confided to Joseph Smith.

"I did not; the Smiths were respected by everyone in the town and vicinity, and np to the time when the dis covery of the plates from which tbe Book of Mermon was translated, that raised a (treat excitement in those parts and many people went to digging for bidden treasures, their moral character had never been questioned.

"Did yon make the statement that Mormonism in those days was a g scheme?" "So, sir; it was appeared to me that the desirous of great elder Smith wealth, and during the excitement following the disc overy of the mysterious plates, I was at times led to think it possible that the elder Smith might bave planned some deep scheme for making money; but when the religious society called tbe'Cboeen People" was farmed, and he became active in proselyting and preaching and baptizing, 1 was nonplussed, for circumstances went to show that Smith could bave had no such aim, or if so, had given it up entirely." "Do you think that his desire for wealth could ever baVe Overcome his honesty?" I "No, no; never thought that. So far as I knew Smith, 1 jadged that be would not take as mucti as the Value of a pin from anybody.'" "what were the sources from which you derived your knowledge o Mormonism?" of the knowledge that I v "Most possess as regards Mormonism, and the plates from which young translated the Book of MorJoseph was mon, derived from conversations with Smith, Sr., and Mar tin Harris. Smith told me of the JstonisX his .son Josepa had found, and by mr am of which he coma see hidden treasures and many wonderful They had formed a society atthings. that lime not a religious society, however.

I told htm, if this was tne case, it was just tae Kind of death I would want to die. But he would not consent, and thus gave me up. I was also well acquainted with Martin Harris. In fact, we were great friends. and i thought f ten ot him in after years. Of late I have often desired to make a journey to California, and oa Utah, to look for alar going through tin Harris. 1 know he would have re ceived me with open arms. He often spoke to me of those plates, and 1 told him that I could not believe that they were what they claimed to be. But he so earnestly in claimingpersisted them to be autbeatic that I was perplexed. I met Martin Harris, several years later, on a steamboat on Cayuga Lake, lie had with htm a company ol "Saints" about two hundred ot them bound far Mis souri, lis preached to tbe passengers on board, on tbe "last and the Book of Mormondispensation" as tbe word of God, and declared that he often communicated with Christ, as one man with another, and many other statements equally strange. In the course of his sermon, be referred to me, and advised his audience, if doubted his honesty, to inquire ofthey me concerning bis reputation, as I was a townsmen of his and knew him well. lne captain of tbe boat was bv mv side and enquired ot mo what sort of a man tiarris was. I could not do other wise than speak well of him; only this I said, that on religious subjects! thought him slightly demented. I was thunderstruck when I beard him speak, and was more perplexed than ever. i" What were yeur religions sentiments at the time were you connected with a church?" "1 was then a member, and later a warden, of the Episcopal Chnrch. and have been connected witn it the greater of my life." part "Did any of your relatives- - loin the as tney were then "Unosen called?" i'eopie," "None, save John Hyde, a cousin of mine. I never saw him, but corres-po- n led with him, when I was a boy and lived in Bostn, aad he was ia London. 1 afterwards learned that he had come to America." "Did the elder ISmith offer any inducements to you-dlhe promise that you should become possessed of great wealth, n you oecameia member ot that society." "He said that by means of the Urlm and Thummim, which were in the possession of bis son Joseph, tie secrets of all arte and sciences would be revealed, and that these would be carefully guarded and kept within the sothere was no.doubt that ciety, and thatwould be tbe result, and wealth greatwould if I join them and contribute some money to the funds of the society, I would be sure to become rich. Well, I now I have come to think, if I bad done so, I would be better off teaay than i am, even if tbe great wealth the senior Smith talked so much about did npt materialize.". "Did these conversations between yoa and Mr. Smith take place before the work of translation from the plates had commenced?" "ifes, sir; Smith used to tell me then that the Writing on the plates was a record of a los race that once Inhabited this continent and was highly civilized; tbjrt it- bad possession of many important secrets ia all branches of art and science, and that these secrets were laid open by the writing on the plates, but that tbe then generation was too wicked to receive them, and therefore the Lord would not grant a translation. Both Smith and Harris told me that the latter took the plates to Dr. Mitchell, of Philadelphia, a reputed linguist, and well versed in belroglvpics, that the prolessor recognized in the writing on the plates an account of a highly civilized race that once inhabited this continent." "Are you not mistaken about the plates was it not an abstract, or a ol the writing or characters on portion one ot these plates, that was shown to Dr. Mitchell?" "No, sir: I remember distinctly to have heard both Smith and Harris" say that the latter took the plates to Dr. Mitchell." "Did this take place before the work' of translation had commenced?' "Yes, sir." "Did you hear of Martin Harris subsequently, that 4e, after the translation bad been entered upon, taking a of some of the on transcript the plates to Dr. Anthonywriting of Mew York, and of this linguist having recognized In the transcript the cnarac-teer- s of some oriental language, bnt declaring himself unable to read it" "I never heard ot such a transla tion."

"No,slr:' "Were yon acquainted with the early ef Mormonism if so, wbat history was their standing in the community?" "Did yoa learn any particulars about the work of translation?" "I did not personally know any one else, save Oliver Cowdery; my acquaintance with him was, however, but slight He was greatly respected by all, as far as I know, as indeed were all the people in those parts, who accepted the new creed. They were, for the most; part substantial farmer. Martin Harris was universally looked up to, and I never heard any one say a word against him." "How about that affair in tbe woods, did tbe Smiths organize ii gold-diggi- it?" "Young: Smith had designated the spot aboat an acre of open ground ; there were no woods there and said that ut means of the Urlm and Thummim he could see "treasures" that were bidden In that ground, and people went lo work searching fortbvm. Young Smith was not there then, but the eider Smith, and when tbe sodden flash of light frightened and dispersed tbe diggers, he declared that the Lord bad in this manner shown His displeasure.' "Vou said a little while ago that no one thought otherwise than well of the Smiths until after tbe discovery of tbe origplates. How did this inate?" treasure-seeking "The failure of the expedition and the consequent disappointment ot many raised a temporary excltement.but there was nothing very serious said or done, until the religious excitement began after the translation of tine plates and toe organization ot the 'Church ot Jesus Christ' when tbe Smiths aud their followers, of which there was a great number then, moved away to Ohio. Then families broke up and tbe popular feeling against the Smiths became very bitter. Their moral character was never attached even then;they were considered religious fanatics." "Were there, to your knowledge, manv families broken up in this way?" ' I know personally of only one that ,of Martin Harris. He perpetrated-no his family. He Wrong was a nice, kindagainst man, and very for bearing. His wife was a qaaksress and did mot sympathize witu bis vtiewa; she couid not believe as he did, and his faith was too strong to ) lei i. Thus he left her aad the children and her property ." 'The Tinxes putsno into your mouth the statement that less than forty families were broken up, in the village of Palmyra?"! "I repeat Martin Harris' family was tho only one ih the town of Palmira, thus oroken up." Were the Smiths persecuted for speaking and doing as they did? Were to any kind ot annoythey ance subjected at services and while performing the ceremony of baptism?" "No sir; their services were orderly and free from annoyance, as 1 was told, for I never attendel any of theifl. When they went to baptize converts, everything went off quietly and without disturbance of any kind. People went to see. as they woul t have 50 e to See a ceremony performed by a Christian minister, and both believ ers and unbelievers behaved properly." "Is the account tho Time gives of the subsequent history of Mormonism from your pen, or in any way authorized by yon?" "Mo sir; I know nothing of wbat transpired after the Smiths acd their followers left the parts where I then Ohio save what I could lived, glean from current rumors." "Did you authorize or encourage the scathing language used in the Times article." "No sir; I would not speak ill of the Smiths, jor Martin Ifatrls, or Oliver Cowdiry under any consideration, 1 wrote an article on the 'Birth of it was entirely different from the Timet article.

Only since 1804 has there been any vigorous revival of the old Czech sptrlt, and in these 43 ) ears many an ancient family has reasserted Its right to bear its own name, the study of tDe old language and literature has been stimulated, and for a long time now this ablest of the Slav tribes has been demanding tbe same recognition that tbe Magyars gained. Toe agitation ia Moravia has been less intense, but nevertheless considerable, and as the Moravians are nearly akin to the Czechs and shared their fate, so they should be reunited in new life. i: Tae ancient kingdom of Bohemia and margraviate cf Moravia no have their Diets which send representatives to the Austrian Iteichsrath; home rule would withdraw their representation from this body, ana they would have a Diet that would govern in all except imperial affatTs, as Hungary is now governed, the emperor being also king ol the new kingdom..

There is a attaint Arabian legend which tells ot the pilgrimage to Mecca oi two uevout louowers oi the t'ropnet. Abouk tourneyed on foot; Selim was mounted on a camel. At nightfall ootu tne pilgrims had reached a spring el water in the desert, where grew a tew palm trees. They prepared to spend tho night together. ''It is a long and tedious Journey," said Abouk. "On tbe contrary, it is short and pleasant." aanswered Selim; I was cheered by mirage on tbe horizon, wherein 1 saw tbe spires of the temples ot the Holy City" "There was no mirage of the Holy Olty to be seen 1" angrily declared AbOuk; "there were, instead, legions of venomous ants in the sand, that bit ami poisoned- my flisb." "Not a single ant was on tbe re Joined Selim. The two desert," were fiercely when pilgrims a good priest, qnarrelmg also lourneyiBg toward Mecca, came up. He listened to them patiently. "Peace, my brethreu," he said, at last; "let us leave these questions till night, to decide. In tbe meantime let Selim so on foot, rtdo tbe camel." They anl Abouktekthis consented exchange of places. On the next night it was Abouk who had seen the glorious visions and found tbe Journey pleasant, and it was Selim who bad been bitten by the ants. "My brothers," said the priest, "we are all going to Mecca, whether we walk or ride; but Selim cannot see what Abouk sees unless bo stands where Abouk stands, It is well to change places occasionally."
