SATURDAY. FEBRUARY 23.
Tom Paine Lat ilisciplcs on these islands. I
wonder if they know what sort of a man be was.
For the following facts about him, I am indebted to
the New York Observer of November 1. The notice
occupies four columns in the Observer, and as I
shall copy but a Tery small part of the article, the
reader who wishes further information is referred to
the Observer. A3 preliminary I will state that more
tlun thirty years ogn, I undertook to read "The
Age of Reason," but instead of reason, I found so
much folly and misrepresentation in the book that I
lost all patience, and laid it aside. Paine tried to
make it out that anciently prophets and poets were
idtutical; and to thow that the Hebrew prophets
were poets, he quoted some lines from th-ir writings
and scanned them as he would lines from Milton, or
Virgil. From this if would seem that he thought
that the Hebrew Bible was written in Englith.
That Paine rendeied important service to the
cause of American Independence is not denied. No
one ever called in question the valuable service
Benedict Arnold tendered to the country in the early
part of the Revolutionary War; but this, with true
Americans, does not suffice to cast a shade of love,
liness, or even to spread a mnntle of charity over his
subsequent career. Whatever share Paine had in
the personal friendship of the fathers of the Revolu
tion he forfeited by his subsequent life of beastly
drunkenness and degradation, and on this account,
as well as on account of his blasjhemy he was
shunned by all decent people.
j Elkanah Watson describes Paine as " coarse uud
uncouth in his manners, loathsome in his appear
ance, and a disgusting egotist."
Wm. Carver, with whom Paine boarded for a time,
wrote to him in the following style : " A respecta-
' ble gentleman from New Rocbelle called to see me a
few days back, and said that every body was tired
of you there, and no one would undertake to board
': and lodge you. I thought this was the case, as I
found you at a tavern in a most miserable situation.
You appeared as if you had not been shaved for a
fortnight, and as to a shirt, it could not be said that
you had one on. It was only the remains of one,
and this appeared not to have been off your back
for a fortnight, and was nearly the color of tanned
leather; aud you had the most disagreeable smell
' possible, just like our poor beggars in Eoglaud.
; You say that you fouud your own liquors during
j the time you boarded with me; but you should have
siid, I found only a small part of the liquor I
drank tluriug my stay with you; this part I pur
. chased of John Fellows, which was a demijohn of
; brandy containing four gallons, aud this did uot
' serve uic three weeks. It is a well kuowu fact,
j that you drank one quart of brandy per day, at my
j expense, during the different times that you boarded
I with me, the demijohn above mentioned excepted."
j I have copied only a part of Carver's letter. It
closes thus : Now, sir, I think I have drawn a
complete portrait of your character; yet to enter
upon every minutia v.ould be to give a history of
your life, and to develope the fallacious mask of
hytocrisy and deception under which you have acted
iu your political as well as moral capacity of life."
Carver was an infidel and had boarded Paine eight
Dr. James R. Manly attended him duriug his last
sickness, and he writes, Mr. Paine professed to be
above the fear of death, and a great part of his
conversation was direcied to give the impression that
he was perfectly willing to leave this world, and yet
fcoiuc parts of his conduct were with difficulty recon
cilable with this belief. In the first part of his
illness he was satisfied to be left alone during the
day, but he required some person to be with him at
night, urging as his leasou, that he was afraid he
should die when unattended.
During the latter part of his life he could not be
left alone night or day; he would uot allow his
curtain to be closed at any time; and if, as some
times it would happen, he was left alone, he would
scream aud halloo, until some person came to bim.
Tbeie was something remarkable iu his conduct
about this period, (which comprises about two weeks
immediately preceding bis death,) particularly when
wc reflect that Thomas Paine was the author of the
Age of Reason.' He would call out during the
paroxysms of distress, without intermission, " Oh
Lord, help me ! God help me ! Jesus Christ help
mc !' repeating the. same expressions without the
least variation, in a tone of voice that would alarm
Bishop Fen wick (Roman Catholic Bishop of
Boston) gives this account : "A short time before
Paine died, I was scut for by him. He was prompted
to this by a poor Catholic woman who went to see
him in his sickness, and who told him, that iu his
wretched condition, if aDybody could do him any
good, it would bo a Roman Catholic priest."
In company with another priest he weut. "A
deceut looking, elderly woman, (probably his house
keeper) came to the door and enquired whether we
weie the Catholic priests, for said she, Mr. Paine
has been so much annoyed of late by other denomi
nations calling upon him that he has left express
orders with me to admit no one to-day but the
clergymen of the Catholic Churob." They entered
the parlot and, finding that Paine was asleep, they
waited for his waking. In the mean time she told
the priests about the dying man. Said she, " His
cries when left alone are heart-rending. Sometimes
be will say, ' O God, what have I done to suffer so
much !' then, shortly after, But there is no
God ;' and again a little after ; Yet if there
should be, what would become of me hereafter?'
" Thus he will continue for eome time, when ou a
sudden he will scream, as if in terror and agony,
and call for roe by uame. On oue of tl.ese occasions
which are very frequent, I went to bim :uid enquired
what he wanted. ' Stay with mc fur Uod's sake,'
he replied, ' for I cannot bear to be left alone,' I
thcu observed that I could not always be with him,
as I had much to attend to in the house. ' Then
said he send even a child to stay with me, for it is
hell to be alone. I never saw, she concluded,
a more unhappy, a more forsaken mau.' "
Ou entering the sick room, Paine haviug awaked,
Bishop Enwick proceeds, YVe found him just get
ting out of his slumber. A more wretched being in
appearance I never saw. He was lying in a bed
sufficiently deceut of itself, but at present, besmeared
with filth. His look was that of a man greatly
tortured iu mind; his eyes haggard, his countenance
forbidding, and his whole appearance that of one
whose better days had been but one continued scene
Upon making knowu the object of their visit,
Taine interrupted the speaker by saying, That's
enough, sir; I see what you would be about. I wish
to bear no more from you, Eir. My mind is made
up on that subject. I look upon the whole of the
Christian scheme to be a tissue of absurdities and
lies, and Jusus Christ to be uothiug more than a
cunning knave and impostor." He drove them out
exclaimiDg, "Away with you aud your God, too.
Leave the room instautly. All that you have uttered
are lies filthy lies; and if I had a little more time,
I would prove it, as I did about your impostor,
Paine wrote the " Age of Reason," aud he spent
several of bis last years ia furnishing a commentary
upon bis infidel principles. This commentary wag
contained in his besotted, degraded life and misera
ble end; but bis friends do not wish the commentary
to go out in connection with his writings. They
prefer to have them read without the comments of
their author. Hence this anxiety to free the great
apostle of infidelity from the obloquy which bis life
brought upon his uame; to represent him as a pure,
noble, virtuous man, and to make it appear that he
died a peaceful, happy death, just like a philoso
pher. Asserting that there is no God," aud ask
ing, Yet, if there should be, what will become of
me hereafter?" Yes, "if there should be." There
is a fearful uncertainty in the minds of infidels;
and, brought to look death in the face, a fearful
looking for of judgment. To Paine, death was the
king of terrors, as he has been aud will be to many
of Paiue's discipjee, ALiqris.

Doctrine of Endless Punishment.
HENRY WARD 1EECUEK ON" THE UOCTKINE.
(From a recent Sermon in Plymouth Church J
The human race l.as existed ou the earth fur
thousands and thousands of years, and has gone
on propagating and niultipljing until all the
waves of the ocean which had roiled iu uron the
ehoree duriDg these centuries do not contain drops
enough, nor the sando ol" the sea particles enough,
not all the figures of the arithmetic numbers
enough, to compute the preface, to say nothing
of the body, of the great history of the human
race. The numbers of the human race are ac
tually beyond computation, and for thousands
and thousands and thousands of years they have
been born in the world, lived and struggled and
finally died and gone where? If you tell me
that they have all gone to heaven, my answer
would be that Fueh a sweeping of mud into
heaTen would defile its purity, and I cannot ac
cept that. If you tell me that they have all gone
to hell, then I swear by the Lord Jesus Christ,
whom 1 have sworn to worehip for ever, that you
will make an iDfidel of me. The doctrine that
Cod has been for thousands of years peopling
this earth with human beings, during a period
three-fourths of which was not illuminated by an
altar or a church, and in places where a vast po
pulation of those people are yet without that
light, is to transform the Almighty into a mon
ster more hideous than Satan himself, and 1
6wear by all that is sacred that I will never wor
ship Satan though he should appear dressed in
royal robes and seated on the throne of Jehovah.
Men may say, " You will not go to heaven." A
heaven presided over by such a demon as that,
who has been reopling this world with millions
of human beings, and then sweeping them oS into
hell, not like dead flies but without taking the
trouble even to kill them, and gloating and laugh
ing over their eternal misery, is not such a heaven
as I want to go to. The doctrine is too horrible.
1 cannot believe it, and 1 won't. They say
the Saints in heaven are so harpy that they
do not mind the torments of the damned in hell;
but what sort of saints must they be who could
be happy while looking down upon the horrors
of the bottomless pit ? They don't mind they're
safe they're happy ! "What would the mother
think of the sixteen-year old daughter who, when
her infant was lying dead in the house, should
come dancing and singing into the parlor, and
exclaim, " Oh ! I'm so happy, mother ! I don't
care for the dead baby in the coffin!" Would
she not be shocked ? And so with this doctrine ;
and by the blood of Christ I denonnce it; by the
wounds in Ilia hands and Ilia side, I abhor it;
by His groans and agony, I abhor and denounce
it as the most hideous nightmare of theology.
CANON FARKAK ON THE DOCTRINE,
from a recent Sermon in Westminister Abbey.
What of the reprobates? I know that for
these reprobates Christ died. The bigot may
judge of their souls if he will. The l'harisee
may consign them, with othordox equanimity, to
endless torments; but I cannot will not. Not
mine, at any rate, shall bd to close against them,
with impetuous recoil and jarring sound, those
gates cf hell, lest they should be more justly
closed upon me; but 1 commend them with hum
blest hope.cveu after this I if e of hopelessness, to
Him who did not loathe the whiteness of the
leper, and suffered the woman who was a sinner
to wash his feet with tears. God's Spirit has
nowhere tanght us that lie who gave cannot give
back; that he who once made theni innocent
children cannot restore their innocence again:
that Ho who created them He who wills them
to be 6aved cannot recreate them in his own
image, cannot obliterate all their vileness in the
blood of Christ, and uncreatc their sins. But
the vast muss ol mankind belong to the third
class. They arc not utter reprobates, they are
not perfect Saints. They try to face both ways.
They halt between two opinions. The angel has
them by the hand, and the serpent by the heart.
Aud it is tl:ose who try to be Clod's children who
realize then own excessive sinfulness. Having
shown how many of the saintliest and tenderest
souls have been driven even to madness as Cow
per wab, by the false view of God which is given
by tho pitiless anathemas of man, Canon Farrar
asked his hearers if, when they buried friends or
relatives who had not been holy or religious,
they dared cousign them, even in their thoughts,
to the unending anguish of the popular creed
they taught? An arbitrary infliction of burning
torment, an cudlcss agony, a material hell ot
worm and flame, a doom to everlasting sin, aud
all this with no prospect of amendment, with no
hoie of relief, the soul's transgression of a few
briefliour8 of struggling, tempted life, followed
by billions of millenniums in seorching fire, and
all this meant not to correct, but to harden, not
to amend, but to torture and degrade, did you
believe in that for any one you have ever loved?
Again, I ay, God forbid ! Again, I say, I fling
from me with abhorrence such a creed as that.
Let every Pharisee gnash his teeth if he will; let
every dogmatist anathematize; but that I can not
and do not believe; Scripture will not let me; my
conscience, my reason, my faith in Christ, the
voice of tin spirit within my soul, will not let
me; God will not let me.
The Local Editor.
The following is borrowed, and it is the best
we ever had a local editor lend us : 44 If a man
buys a new buggy, or if his cow can bawl three
times without winking, the local is expected to
proclaim it with a grand flourish. If he 6tarts a
two-penny business his first thought is to bribe
the local with a five cent cigar to write up a five
dollar puff. Indeed, he thinks it is a mission of
the local to make a fortune for him by free
blowing' JIo will take the local to one side
and point out the- superior qualities of a raU
terrier, and coolly ask him to ' give him a hoist.'
He don't care anything about it, only Spriggins
has a dog that he thinks is a buster and Borne of
'em want his put in' just to take the conceit
out of Spriggins. Everybody wants to be put
in.' They are the Great I am,' but no one
says, ' here, local, put yourself inside of this
new suit of clothes, or throw yourself out6ide
this oyster etew, or stuff this watch into your
pocket.' Oh, no, of course not; that would
cost something. The shoe is on the other foot
you see. The local is supposed to know every
thing about other people's business, and is
expected to show up all the actors in every family
broil in town. If the vile tongue of scandal
finds a victim, people wonder why he don't run
about with his note-book and gather up the
vituperative bits of slander for his paper. Ir ho
steps into a billiard hall he is requested to make
a note of the astonishing fact that Bill Tompkins
has made a run of eleven points. When the
minstrel troupe arrives in town, the agent im
mediately rushes into the printing office, and
calling for the local, he slips three or four
tickets in his hand, and whispers, draw us a
big house! Put it in strong!' and patting him
patrgnijcingly on tho shouldor, tho agent admits
the inferiority of the troupe, but wo are not to
let on.' It is no sin for the local to lie. To
pleaso the lecturer the local is forced to sit two
mortal hours to hear him through an insipid dis
course so that he can ' write him up.' And so it
goes. All are anxious to appear favorably in
print, but few are willing to pay for it. The
local's time is worth nothing but to bother his
head writing puffs for ambitious persons. It
don't cost him anything to live. He never eats,
or drinks, or travels, and money is of no use to
him. Put it iu ! Put it in !
Trhbokne Again. The South Australian
Vhronhtt. of Adelaide, Las the following :
Mr. W. II. Locke, who is actinj as agent in
Australia for the persons who maintain the
Tichborne agitation in England, is about to take
to Great Britain the man William Creswell, alias
Smith, alias Orton, who is now confined in the
Paramatta Lunatic Asylum. The Melbourne
Anjus says: Mr. Locke accompanied Mrs. Jury,
Ortou's sister, to Sydney, and is satisfied with
her recognition of the man. He identifies him
also by his correspondence with photographs of
Ortou which have been sent out to bim, aud by
evidence which it is not advisable to disclose.
Mr. Locke, it will be remembered, made a statu
tory declaration that be was present in Court
when de Castro and Orton were charged with
with horsestealing at Castlemaine, and be has
thus been mixed up with the case from the com
mencemeut. Mr. Locke takes the man home at
his own risk and thus gives tangible evidence
of the firmness of his belief in the identity of his
pruteye with the Wapping butcher. The incident

Frutn the IVjjular Science Monthly
Present State of the Garden of Eden.
Prince de Lijrne, countryman and contempo
rary of Maria Theresa, wrote an essay " On the
Location of the Earthly Paradise," and, after
some reflections on the hygienic influence of
different climates, calls attention to the fact that
paradise traditions, in locating the garden of
Eden, differ only in regard to longitude, but not
to latitude. The latitude keeps always near the
snow boundary, a line just south of the regions
where snow may fall, but will not stay on the
ground. It passes through Thibet, Cashmere,
Northern Persia, and Asia Minor, and reaches
the meridian of Europe near the center of the
Mediterranean." The nations that celebrated
life as a festival have lived along this line, and
we may doubt if in the most favored regions of
the New World human industry, with all the
aids of modern science, will ever reunite the
opportunities of happiness which nature once
lavished on lands that now entail only misery on
their cultivators. All over Spain and Portugal,
Southern Italy, Greece, Turkey, Asia Minor,
Persia and W'estern Afghanistan, and through
out Northern Africa, from Morocco to the valley
of the Nile, the aridity of the soil makes the
struggle for existence so hard that to the vast
majority of the inhabitants life from a blessing
has been converted into a curse.
Southern Spain, from Gibraltar to the head
waters of the Tagus, maintains now only about
one teuth of its former population, Greece about
one twentieth. As late as A. D. 670, a good
while after the rise of the Mohammedan power,
the country now known as Tripoli, and distinct
from the Sahara only through the elevation of its
mountains, was the scat of eighty-five Christian
bishops, and had a population of 6,000,000, of
which number three quarters of one per cent,
are now left ! The climate which, according to
authentic description, must once have resembled
that of our Southern Alleghaniee, is now so
nearly intolerable that even the inhumanity of
an African despot forbears to exact open-air
labor from 9 a. m. to 5 r. m. Steamboats that
pass near the Tripolitan coa6t in summer, on
their way from Genoa to Cairo, have to keep up
a continual shower of artificial rain to 6ave their
deck-hands from being overcome by the furnace
air that breathes from the barren hills on the
opposite coast. The rivers of some of these
countries have shrunk to the size of their former
tributaries, and from Gibraltar to Samarcand the
annual rain fall has decreased until failure of
crops has become a chronic complaint.
And all this change is due to the insane de
struction of forests. The Caucasian sylvania
that once adorned the birth-land of the white
race from the Western Pyrenees to the foot
hills of Himalayas has disappeared ; of tho
forest area of Italy and Spain, in the days of the
elder Pliny, about two acres in a hundred are
left ; in Greece, hardly one. But even the
nakedness of the most sterile tracts of Southern
Europe is exceeded by the utter desolation of the

Among Mr. Mackay's Scottish anecdotes is a
characteristic one ol Dr. Wardlaw, the octo
genarian minister, who advocated the most rigid
observance of the Sabbath, and who was re
buked for riding his pony four miles to service
in Glasgow every Sunday. The doctor justified
himself on the ground that the observance of the
Lord's day was obligatory on mankind only;
that animals were left under the old law of the
Sabbath, and that his pony invariably had rest
every seventh day of the week.

Some little while ago, at a bar conclave at a
Southern hotel, generals, majors, &c., were each,
with much declamation, giving an account ot an
incident of the war. A quiet man stood by, and
at last said : 44 Gentlemen, I happened to be
there, and, perhaps, might be able to refresh
your memories as to what took place :" and he
gave, succinctly and inoffensively, an exact
detail of a smart action. The hotel-keeper 6aid
to him, 44 Sir, what might have been your rank?"
44 1 was a private," was the reply. The next day
the quiet man, as he was about to depart, asked
for his bill. 44 Not a cent, sir not a cent,"
answered the proprietor. 44 You arc the very
first private ever I met."
