S MKHCIt.BHS CASTKIATIO.N.
We have received, from an esteemed
correspondent un able and most withering
communication reviewing tin- political
course of a certain liatlical editor i-i this
Htate. That worthy is literally flayed
alive, and pounded into atoms, between
the up|M-r and nelher millstone of the
ponderous arguments ot an incensed and
virtuous Democrat. The arraignment is
based upon some of the wilt'en utterance*
of ttic iifo.esaid editoi, which the writer
declares to he without foundation and ma
in iously untrue.
As the election is over and all discus
sion is now bootless, and can only Increase
the ascerbities of the hour, we have deem
ed it beat to withhold the article of mil
irate frleml, which can do no manner ol
good, but might lend to an endless news
paper fusillade. For the same reason we

licving that such animadversions, when

enemy go. The world is wide umaigh for

We have heard of the worthy who put
the candle into bed and blew himself out,
but he was a beggarly genius compared
with the spirit of the übovo editorial.
Now, we do not care a brass button from
the coal of a Yankee lieutenant of marines,
for the radical rascal who, according to
the Telegraph Is (figuratively) "flayed alive

The Ball-Room and the Theatre—Lec
ture by Rev. R. A. Holland.
From tie- Ml-sourl Republican, Nov. 4.)
Kcv It A. Holland last night delivered
a lecture In Bt. tie urge's church, corner of
Locust and Seventh streets, to a very large
audience, on the subject of- Popular
Amusements.” Taking for It's text 1 lie
'Jlli verse of the I Itli chapter of Kccicsias-
U:h, commencing with the words, "llejoice
O young man in lliy youth,” etc., the rev
erend lecturer remarked that the subject
of his lecture was a very sensitive one.
Whenever the subject of -popular amuse
ments” i • approached with a view of point
ing out the moral or immoral tendencies
involved,, the fashionable world threaten
to cry out. Respectable Christians are
willing that gambling, intemperance and
their kindred vices should be flogged for
their naughtiness, hut Christians may claim
immunity from censure in going to the
theatre, or engaging in the very respecta
ble pastime of whirling or tripping around
the hall room locked iu the sexual em
brace ol Hie waltz, whose immorality is
upheld when accompanied by the be
witching strains of inspiring music
These rcspecUhle ninusemeuts must not
tie touched. This was not, however, the
Christian morality taught by the Divine
Master. It was not the Christianity of St.
Chrysostom, who emptiej the theutres of
Constantinople by his homilies
The metaphysics of Christianity Hereof
no value except ns they inspire a godly
and pure life. It is the business of Chris
tianity to uiukc men lidler, to till their
hearts with love for all that is beautiful and
holy. Christ, the perfect model of all the
virtues, is in the world. lie is not dead
and in I lie sepulchre, that we should he
lamenting liis absence, and proclaiming to
the world from the pulpit un uccount of I
his extinct miracles.
The pulpit lias been playing llio part
of ventriloquist, merely giving tlie faint
echo of Christianity as it comes to us from
a remote age instead of preaching a living
Christ, w ho apenka to us not from a period
long past, but from ttie present as a living
oracle, pointing out the way which leuds
to happiness in this life and eternal felici
ty in the life to come.
Christianity does not condemn rational
emjoymeut, There is iu man a spirit of
fun which, if not controlled, will develop
itself in immoral action.
The speaker referred to the spirit of luu
iu the child. It was a necessity of his na
ture that this spirit slioubl have ample
scope for development. It could not be
repressed without a violation of the laws
j of his being. It must, however, wo cou
! trolled within inuocorit and proper clian
At no period of English history hud
amusements become so licentious as under
the Restoration. Lord Macaulay lias told
us that this ago tolerated amusements
w hich no other ago would have permitted.
The Fui'itana thought it a siu to laugh,
and sanctity to tulk through the nose.
They regarded fun as the wild unticsof dia
bolism hi it any wonder that when the
restraints which Puritanism imposed upon
society were removed that people should
bound into the opposite extreme v
The violent reaction that lollowed the
removal of unnatural restraints lead the
fashionable world. In their amusements
to make a mockery of virtue and religion,
and satirize and ridicule everything that
ennobled and dignified human life.
We may conceive of a world made upon
purely utilitarian principliea—a world in
which every substance, every object and
every element cottlTl only minister to the
material wants ofllio world upon diflerent
principles. For every stem that bore
fruit to satisfy the cravings of hunger,
there were a thousand stems decorated
with flowers and foliiage, presenting to the
eye of man innumerable objects of beauty
in countless forms and colors For every
mountain that contained the ores necessa
ry for tire comfort of civilized man, there
were numerous mountain chains destitute
of every elementof material wealth, whose
lolly peaks seem specially designed to give
man uu idea of the perpetual presence of
the sublime After citing other illustra
tions of a similar character the reverend
lectui or continued Thus wc see the guy,
the beautiful, the sublime, all around u>,
in intluitc excess over the merely useful.
Religion gives nor full consent to enjoy
this beautiful world in which we live. It
commands us to rejoice and be merry. It
does not teach us the puritanic idea of rq,
guiding the voice of iunocent mirth as the
chuckle of floods, or to look upon long
faced ness us the symbol of Christianity.
We may use but not abuse every iaculty
which God lias given us for iunocent en
joyment It is no argument against any
amusement that it is liable to perversion.
Hating may become a gluttony, sleep may
become sloth, and religion, which is de
signed to fill the soul with the holiest de
sires, may become fanaticism.
l’totcslantisiu becomes papacy when it
undertakes to anathematize and place un
der ban rational amusements and inno
cent recreation. Where, then, is the dis
tinction between the moral and the guilty “
It was no sin to shove a ball or cross a
cue upon a billiard table, but when this
was accompanied with the evil associa
tions and sinful practices of the bar room
it ceased to be an icnoceut amusement.
It was no sin to trip tho light fantastic
toe to the accompauiiuent of delightful
music, but wlteu this amusement is accom
panied witli the guilty embrace, which ex
cites unholy desires, and is practiced to
kindle the passion of sensuality, it can no
longer be defended as an innocent amuse
The true lest in determining what kind
of amusements we may not engage in is
that w e shall tint violate the laws of mor
Tito lecturer next proceeded to apply
this test to the drama, the objectionable
features of which he portrayed in vivid
colors. He did not condemn all dramatic
w r. tings as immoral, but those plays which
weie unexceptionable, which were ele
vated in tone and calculated to inspire
none but a pure morality were very diffi
cult to present in such a manner as to meet

in the history of the theatre, but a contin
ued era of mud. The theatre has beeu the
sewer of time
In proof of this prope>sition the lecturer
cited an eloqueut characterization of the
theatre from a French skeptic.
The speaker next spoke of the associa
tions of the theatre which were evil, lie
thought all attempts to reform the theatre
would prove futile so long us men love
money more than decency and virtue.
The subject pf dancing as an amuse
ment was next considered. He would not
attempt to describe the character of the
dance to which he objected, but his si
lence was the silence of bashfulness and
not of assent.
He proceeded to depict in vivid colors
the evil consequences of the excitement
and dissipation of the ball room, and closed
with an eloquent peroration, in which he
commended the condition of those who
had discovered that happiness was within
themselves, und was not dependent upon
artificial stimulants or guilty pleasures.
An Actor Who Enoch Ardens Better
From tliu New Orleans Times, 28th. j
Twcuty years ago there was known- to
the American stage a Mr. X , an actor
of considerable local celebrity in New
York and Boston, and many there are yet
in those cities who recollect him as an
artist of more than average ability. In the’
heyday of his years and fame he married
a beautiful actress, but their marital hap
piness was short lived, tor failing to find
iu each other's companionship the fulfill
ment of hope's bright visions, they parted,
he remaining in the old field of his labors,
while she wandered through the land,
gaining much success as an exponent of
the "horse ” drama, but through all those
years they never met nor knew
the one that the other still lived, except
as the knowledge was borne by the
world’s current history. Five years ago
the lady appeared at the St. Chailcs thea
tre, in this city as "Mazeppn,” under the
name of , when one night, while milk
ing the “run” lashed to her steed, she met
with a severe accident, resulting in her
immediate withdrawal from the stage
from which time she faded out of exist,
dice ; nothing was known or heard of her,
and her husband, in common with many,
thought her dead. Meanwhile the fortune
of X , varying as ever are the fortunes
of actors, had led him, now grown old, to
join Mr. Aiken's company, finally bringing
up in New Orleans Monday last, on which
day, soon after his arrival, he started out
for a walk. Wandering through the
streets of the Third District, he came upon
the figure of a woman standing in the
door-way of a cigar store.
Upon her features he gazed as upon one
who awakened recollections of other days,
lie looked again, and, as if by. magic, lie
recognized the wife of his early years
With the revelation, there rushed through
liis mind a host of memories, ami iu an
instant lie had fainted away dead on the
banquoltc. lie was conveyed to his hotel,
and upon his recovery immediately in
stituted innuirics, whicli revealed to him
that after her accident she had married,
and was then living with her second bus
Of course, she knew of his presence here,
but he had made to her no sign, and both,
so strangely met, will still journey on apart,
to meet again—never, perhaps, this side of
