To the Editor q/f the Standard. Stn,-The love of power, being so deeply a rooted principle that to seek its exclusion when legitimately exercised would be derogatory to God and unjust to ourselves; but, like all the strong passions of our nature, it requires training or educlnting to its right uses. Read power is an attribute of ])eity, and can only be acquired by man in exact proportion as he acts in conlobrmity to tihe fixed and istuntable laws which regulate and keep in order the universe of God. Real power, then, consists in a knowledge of its source, an identification of onurselves with it, or in other words, a knowledge of events which must inevitably flow from preceding events, and a practi cal applicatlio of theml, by regulating and cont rolling their cftlets. This Is itschartserilstic. Its uuiver sality preserves it front censure and distinguishes It from arbitrary power, wlich is its perversion, and justly exposed to reprobation. " 'Consciousnless of powers to overcome dif...
