It is pointed out that, bit by bit, tlho sacrod oharacter of Sunday is being whittled away, so that the rising generation, Instead of regiarding the day as sp~cially set apart for Divine worship and spiritual instruction, c n hardly form any other idea concerning it than a, of a day dovoted to piouioing and amuse ment, One rev. gentleman declares that the keeping one dlay.in the week sacred from toil and the getting of gain has been one of the foundations of the Britibsh nation, and he asks pathetically, "If the foundations aro deotroyed, what can the righteous do() The poesition of Ithe Government, however, is that they mnsat consult the con. venience of the people as they find them, in all matters that are indifftront or harmless They are bound to oonsider the grteateat goo...
