RESTORE YOUR SOUL.

YIELD all the days their dues,

But when the evening light is lost, or dim,
Commune with your own spirit, and with Him

Restore your soul with stillness as is meet, And when the sun bids forth, haste not to show Your strength, but kneel for blessing ere you go,

And meekly bind the sandals on your feet.

PENNSYLVANIA UNDER FRIENDS' RULE.1 WE say very emphatically that this is the best historical review of the Colonial period in Pennsylvania between 1681 and 1756 that has yet appeared. It is

the best because it is sympathetic with the adminis

tration of the Friends, and yet is fair to all,—in other words, because the author understands his subject, and writes with candor. The fault of most previous books relating to the period has been either a want of sufficient insight, a lack of thorough study, or a view dominated by bias. President Sharpless's compact and readable volume is entitled by the merits we have mentioned to the respectful attention of every historical student who cares to be well informed on the first seventy-five years of William Penn's Colony. William Penn received his charter from Charles the Second on the 4th of March, 1680-81, and his representative, his cousin, William Markham, arrived here in June or July following, with authority to begin to organize the new Colony. From that date to the summer of 1756 was precisely three-quarters of a century, and during almost the whole of this period the Friends, or Quakers, had control of the popular legislative body, the Assembly, and may be fairly said to have given direction to the Colonial Government. They were hampered and interfered with, carped at and intrigued against, browbeaten and maligned, it is true, but they held on, nevertheless, and the history of the seventy-five years is a history of an earnest endeavor to administer a colony of the British Crown in substantial accord with the principles of the Society which George Fox founded,—the history, in other

peaceable living.

| words, of the years in which William Penn's “Holy

Experiment” had a tolerably fair trial in Pennsylvania. President Sharpless studies this period in eight chapters. He analyzes, first, “the principles upon which the settlers of Pennsylvania sought to base their government; ” he describes the Friends in England, and then the Friends in Pennsylvania; he defines the system of Democracy and Civil Liberty, and of Religious Liberty, which they established ; he narrates their action concerning the Indians, and concerning Military Affairs, and finally he recites the circumstances in which they were induced to surrender, in 1756, their majority in the Assembly, and to retire from responsibility for the Colony's control. It is quite impossible for us, in this notice, even to summarize his treatment of these topics. We can only deal with a few of the points involved, in order that the reader may have the advantage, so far as it may be such, of further discussion and explanation as to those matters which are of most interest and importance. The essential difficulty of the Quaker Experiment in Pennsylvania, the crucial question which continually imperilled its success, and threatened its continuance, was the even yet unsolved problem of It was Penn's plan, and it was the Quaker requirement, that in their Colony men should not expect to fight. They believed the injunctions of Jesus Christ forbade war, and they respected these more than the motives and schemes of men. But then, as since in Pennsylvania, there were large numbers, indeed a decided majority, of persons who called themselves Christians who nevertheless counted war " as consistent with the religion they professed, and who not only so stultified themselves but found the Christian consistency of the Friends a shining mark for reproach and assault. It was this attack of the war people, begun in 1689, only eight years after the Colony was founded, that most seriously embarrassed the Friends. The other difficulties of the government were numerous and often perplexing, but most and

perhaps all of them could have been adjusted ; it was

the war spirit—or shall we say demon P−which ultimately overcame and crushed the Holy Experiment, “Of all Friendly ideas,” says President Sharpless,

“the most difficult to incorporate practically into gov

ernment machinery was that of peace,”—and this statement must be accepted with the fullest emphasis and significance that the language will bear. It was the most difficult; it is even now the most difficult, nearly a century and a half after the day the Friends surrendered their control of the Pennsylvania Assembly. And the chapters, therefore, in which our friend treats this part of his subject are the most important in his book, if we regard it simply as a study in civil government.
