Tbc Metropolis Business.
Since tbo publication of Senator IngaUs'
"Open Letter," there is a great uprising among
aspiring Kansas cities to becomo the particular
Metropolis that ho speaks of. Leavenworth,
Lawrence, Atchison, ami Wyandotte are each
and all looking for it. Before tlicy are tbxongb,
they will be fighting liko cats and dogs over it,
and Missouri will sop np tho gravy, as usoal.
Wo have received an invitation to visit Wyan
dotte on tbo 23d insL, which day has been ap
pointed for persons from all parts of tho State to
look over tbo ground, and see what they have
to show in the way of room for tho Metropolis.
Personally, we have no interest whatever in tho
Metropolis business, but wo have some sympathy
for Wyandotte for one reason. Congressman
Cobb pnblished an "Open Leter," in response to
that of Ingalls, as he had a perfect right to do,
in which he presented the claims of Wyandotte,
his own home, as a Metropolis. For this act of
presumption, ho has been denounced and be
smeared, and even told by Hepublican papers
that it is good bo was defeated for re-election,
His offence lies in the fact that Wyandotte is
close to Kansas City, which is tho great object
of jealousy of those other towns, and any favors
to Wyandotte will bo "virtually helpiug Kansas
City. A public man "who lives in Wyandotte has
no business standing tip for his town, because it
is too near Kansas City.
Now, we have heard this sort of argument be
fore, and Northern Kansas has suffered by it.
When the Henderson Amendment was before
the Legislature, Atchison raised the howl that if
the proposition were carried to bnild the road
through the Northern Tier, tho eastern terminus
wonld bo St. Joe., and the trade of Kansas would
go to build np a town in Missouri. Topeka was
with Atchison, because she was mado to believe
that tho road would run in that direction. Leav
enworth, although sho was cutting her own
throat by so doing, was whipped in, and her dele
gation voted solidly with Atchison, her members
doing more work and blowing than Atcbisou
herself. Wyandotte, that Atchison now wants
to strangcle, went solidly tho same way. Law
rence got on the fence, and divided half and half.
Well, tbey defrauded Northern Kansas out of
the road, to keep it away from St. Joe. Leaven
worth has been a living corpse for years ; Law
rence has progressed reasonably well; Atchison
has kept up a forced prosperity, by gobbling and
blowing, and is now raising tho cry of wolf
against her former ally, Wyandotte, the sanio as
sho did against Northern Kansas. Iu the mean
time, St. Joe. has built a road west through tho
Northern Tier, and has built a bridge, and is mo
nopolizing the trado of Northern Kansas; while
Kansas City has made railroad connections with
tho wholo of Southern and Central Kansas, and
is monopolizing tho trado of those sections. And
when those towns of Kansas get through with
their "Open Letters" and their Metropolis fight, it
will bo found that St. Joe. and Kansas City are
still masters of tho situation. And what care
Northern and Southern Kansas if they are f It
sounds well to talk about building np towns in
Kansas ; but when tho life-blood is sucked
from the best part of tho State in order to do
it, it is not so nice to those who are called
upon to supply the blood. The commercial in
terests of Northern Kansas are connected with
St. Joseph, Missouri city as she is, and all tho
blow with which sho has been surfeited for years
past will not chango tho fact. It is better to
havo improvements and prosperity, and send
over trado to bnild up St. Joe., than to remain
forever out of tho woritl of busiacu as a depen
dency of Atchison, merely for tbc glory of tbo
Then, go on with your Metropolis business, wo
eay. Wo wish plucky Wyandotte success, and
hope that she may never again join tho strong
and cheeky to rob tho week.

WV Is It! Why is it that Jeff. Davis is be
ing invited to address agricultural fairs, at points
all over tho North? It is not that ho knows a
great deal about farming, or can teach tho farm
ers of the North anything, who have always done
their own farming, and havo not depended upon
slaves to do it. It is not that the people havo
expressed a desire to seo and hear him. Thcro
is a deeper reason at tho bottom of it. The De
mocracy, having met with largo success within
the past year, now propose to tako another step
toward the great end which they havo in view,
to re-establish tho power of tho Southern rebels.
to do this, they wish to mako tho people of the
North familiar with the great chief of the rebel
lion; then they will labor to mako them admiro
and respect him ; and finally, to look np to and
follow him. Tho surest way, is to foist him npon
the farmers, and ingratiate him in their favor.
We shall see how far tbey can succeed. While
banded together for their inntual interest and
improvement, will thoy allow themselves to bo
come tho tools in working out tho designs of
thoso enemies to free labor and free Government?
Keso! W. H. Small wood, of the Watcrvilio
Telegraph, who spent the past week at the St.
Joseph Exposition, gambling, found time, before
leaving homo, to leavo an article on tho copy
hook abusing us personally, for defending oursell
from an attack by him, upon a question which
did not concern him. no now saddles upon his
partner tho articles by which ho provoked us to
reply. It is mighty convenient to havo a part
ner npon whom to saddle such littlo things,
when ho finds it desirable to creop out of tho re
sponsibility. This man Smallwood would havo
spoken truly, had he said that we were his friend
for years. Wo havo repeatedly helped him to
office, and never asked him for any help in re
turn; but having, by his own conduct, played
himself out politically, and because wo happen
exTto think that other men "beside himself were
occasionally entitled to support, ho has tortured
every littlo squib into a personal slur upon him,
and gono off the haudlo accordingly. Let him
run his billiards and his w heel of fortuno we
will attend to our business in our own way.
Good! Tho Republicans of Ohio, finding tho
sand sliding from under their feet because of
their financial madness, sent for Dick Oglesby, of
Illinois, to como and help them. Ho went, aud
last week made an a able speech in Cincinnati, a
large portion of which was devoted to an earnest,
ringing defence of tho greenback and ho was
enthusiastically applauded, too! Wo want to
see tho Republicans of Ohio victorious; but we
are glad that they havo had to abandon their
hard money plank, and call upon tho greenback
men to save them.
Ey Terhaps it is not generally known that a
full Presidential ticket is already in tbo field for
1876, and is silently but surely making fearful
progress among tho people. Snch is tho fact;
and lest tho people should remain in ignorauco
of it, untU too lato to successfully opposo it, we
shall do all in our power to let it be known. It
is tho Anti-Secret Society Ticket, and is compos
ed as follows: For President, James B. Walker,
of Illinois; for Vice-President, Donald Kirkpat
rick, of Now Tork.
EsTbo California election took place last
week, and resulted in an overwhelming Demo
cratie victory. "Third Term" is tho causo as
signed for the Republican rent. If the hard
money States naturally go Democratic, and the
Republicans force' tho Greenback States to go the

Win the public heart! It naturally goes out to
him, and sympathizes with him, and even makes
bis canses its own, without knowing anything of
the points involved. Such is our feeling toward
thj renowned lawyer of the Watcrvilio Telegraph,
who has retained himself for the defence of pub
lic thieves, and whose feelings have been badly
hurt by the indecency of editors, ifl expressing a
belief of tho guilt of the accused. We feel like
assisting him in cullecfiug evidence. It is for
this purpose that wo hereby notify him that C.
B. Wilkinson, the St. Joseph Collector, has fled
the country, thereby acknowledging his guilt.
His bond has been forfeited, and hi friends are
left to pay his stealings and gambling debts.
The St.Jocph Gazttlc, of tho 9th inst., thns
speaks of him:
Charles R. 'Wilkinson, late IT. S. Internal Revenue Col
lator of this district, bad not put In an appearance, and
lit bond of 113,000 tu forfeited. Sir. Wilkinson's friends,
(and be hail many 01 them in St. Joseph,) claim that he
has "given them away." Gifted with a train such as God
haa given to few men, it seems to have been used for a
purpose that few men wonld have nsed it for. lie seems
to have forgotten every obligation that a man owea to
those who havo been kind to him. In fact, the man was i a
moral cowan!, and that cowardice haa embarrassed the
very men who wonld have atood by him in almost any
emergency. It is bnt barely possible that any criminal
prosecution conld have been sustained azatnat Mr. Wilk
inson, and yet he fled when no one pursued, and his bond,
Civen by faithful friend., wh forfeited on Monday last.
Ilia indebtedness in this ritr amounts probably to some
IM.OOO. Of this amount eT.OOO U endorsed by those to
whom he is tinder many obligations, and $3,000 by one of
his best friends, who fa fortnnate.lv secured. we have
often tnought that if we had Chaa. ft Wilkinson a brains,
they wonld be a fortune : and yet perhaps it it better that
we did not have them. Intellectual power is valuable on
ly as it conduces to the general good.
In contrast with this, Mr. Bittingcr has faced
tho music liko a man, and given his friends and
tho public reason to at least believe that he is
not guilty of the charges against him.
Kektixo It Aijve.-Wo. "hear -a good deal
abont the people of tho South accepting the sit

On Snnday, he attended tbo Sabbath School.
After tho lessons were said, tho Superintendent
called npon the teachers of classes, ono by one,
for their soveral reports on tho deportment of

grasshopper year, mako such a showing at her

liver tho address. Jeff. Davis has too many en
gagements out already, aud thcro is no hope of
getting him here. But our fair will bo of small
er proportions than those that ho will graco with
his presence, aud we mnst bo coutcut to do hon
or to tho hero of fewer and less cold-blooded
atrocities. Wo havo it! Wo can depend upon a
Kansas production, even in that particular. Let

t3f" A knot of Democrats were beard convers
ing of tho political situation iu tho County, tho
other day, when one of them remarked, that un
less the Farmers nominated a ticket, no Demo
crat would stand any show this Fall. It was
further remarked, that the Farmers would not
hold a Convention, unless tho Republicans did.
Perhaps it would bo just as well to hold no Con
vention, and elect men upon their merits; but
has it como to the pass that the Farmers' organ
ization is simply a cat's-paw to be used by Dem
ocratic office-seekers! It is time that Republican
Grangers were considering for what purpose they
are being used. But we think that most of them
havo already considered, aud are out of tho cat's
paw business. An important election occurs
next year, and it is time tho Republicans were
getting their forces in hand.
The Pkxswext's Eos Mot. While awaiting dinner, the
President nttcred a bon mot which is worth repeating. A
gentleman was introduced to him as a Democrat, and some
one observed that Mr. M . a member of the recention
commute, who "stood by, was also -one : on which Gen.
Grant remarked that he himself voted for Buchanan. ni.
boldened by this, Mr. M said that he not only did
that, bnt was a member of the convention that nominated
him. " That," replied the President, " is a good deal worse
than I ever did." and Mr. M was obliged to Join in
the general laugh which followed. Litter from Jirutol
A very flat thing, when said by a high dignita
ry, becomes a bon mot. Tbo good thing in tho
above consists solely in tho fact that President
Grant said it. To this day, Ben. Butler is abus
ed for things which he did when bo was a Dem
ocrat among them, voting for Jeff'. Davis for
President, in tho Charleston Convention. But
Butler never did a meaner thing than voting for
Buchanan; and be doesn't brag abont it.
G?" It must be expected that a President's en
emies will circulato all manner of slanders against
him. But, on the other baud, there are some
times reports and rumors afloat that beat a
semblance of truth such, for iustance, as tho
rumor that is becoming too frequent not to ex
cite gravo apprehensions, that the President is
drinking to excess. Tho New York Mercury, a
few days since, pnblished a staiainpntia thoef.

prominent office-holder were compelled to with
draw him from Long Branch for some days, aud
to seclude him on Fire Island, iu order to get
him over a drank, and provide against a threat

who knows what a day may bring forth?
E?" Tho authorities at Long Branch are de
termined to suppress dishonesty and corruption
in office. A nnmber of postmasters and postmis

and were unceremoniously kicked out of office.
We are sorry to add, however, that the Secretary
of the Interior and all his hangers-on have been

MoktovGkts Man. Official absenteeism has founds

It Is with much pleasure that we greet the ap

When we reflect how essential to the welfare and
prosperity of every citizen is an intelligent un

lie our government and the laws which affect all
our social and business relations, wo at ouce feel
the necessity of some method by which this
knowledge can bo placed within tho reach and
comprehension of all. For this purpose was

Prominent among tho distinguishing features
of the work, are the articles upon tho Constitu

of our Government, the right of Citizenship and

The Author has avoidod the use, as far as pos
sible, of the dry phraseology of the law, which
tends bnt to perplex and embarrass the ordinary
reaucr, but wnile rejecting tne ury husk no pre

Wo regard tbo appearance of the work as most
timely, inasmuch as it will fill a niche long va

Common Sense Medical Adviser," etc., etc.
I am aware that Ihere is a popular, aud not
altogether unfounded, prejudice against "patent
medicines," owing to tbe small amount of merit
which many of them possess. Tho appellation
"Patent Medicine," doe not apply to my reme
dies, as no iat-ut hat ever been asked for or ob
tained upon them, ui.r have they been urged
npon the public as " cure-alls.". They are simply
some favorite prescriptions, which, iu a very ex
tensive practice, have proved their superior rem
edial virtues iu tho cure of thu diseases for which
they aro recommended. Every practicing physi
ciau has his favorite remedies, which heoftenest
recommends or uses, because ho has the greatest
confidence ln their virtues. Tho patient doc
not know their composition. Even prescriptions
aro usually written in a langnago unintelligible
to any but tho druggist. As much secrecy is em
ployed as in the preparation of proprietary medi
cines. Docs the fact that an articlo is prepared
by a process known only to tho manufacturer,
render that article less valuable! How many
physicians know the elementary composition of
tbe remedies which tbey employ, some of which
have never been analyzed I Few practitioners
know bow Morphine, Quinine, Podophylin, Lep
tandrin, Pepsin, or Chloroform, are made, or how
nauseous drugs aro transformed into palatable
elixirs; yet they do not hesitate to employ
them. It is not inconsistent to use a prescrip
tion, the composition of which is unknown to us,
and discard another preparation simply because
it is accompanied by a printed statement of its
properties with directions for its us.
Some persons, while admitting that my medi
cines are good pharmacental compounds, abject
to them on the ground that they are too often
used with insufficient judgment. I proposo to
obviate this difficulty by enlighteuing the peo
ple as to the structure aud functions of their
bodies, the causes, character and symptoms of
disease, and by indicating the proper and judi
cious employment of my medicines, together
with such auxiliaryjl!3tht as may bo neces
sary. Such is one of tbe designs of tho People's
Medical Adviser, forty thousand copies of which
have already been published, and are sold at the
exceedingly low price of $1.40, and scut (post

If you would patronize medicines, scientifically

Medical Discovery is tonie, alterative, or blood

Pleasant Purgative Pellets, scarcely larger than
mustard seed, constitute an agrceablo and relia

Smart-Weed, a magical remedy for pain, bowel
complaints, and an uncqiialed Liniment for both
human and horse-flesh ; while Dr. Sage's Catarrh
Remedy is known the world over as the greatost
specific for Catarrh and "Cold iu the Head,''
ever given to tho public.
These standard remedies havo been before tbo
public for many years a period long cnongh to
fully test their merits, and tho best argument
that can be advanced iu their favor is tbo fact
that their salo was ncer so great as during tbo
past six months.

Allen Met Invincible His Risings Up and
The ringing assertion of Hon. L.T. Ncal before
tho Democratic Stato (Joinontiou, that "Gov. Al

of oratorical Uoridity and glittering, indefinite
generalization is, perhaps, pcruiissiblo iu a nom

of his remarks.
For tho benefit of Mr. Neal (who should bo

that Gov. Allen was never strong before tho

"Tho thing which was oftcnest said to mo in
Mississippi by Democratic politicians was this :
'Our only hope is in the Democratic success in
the next federal election. Tho Democratic suc
cesses last Fall gave us our first gleam of light.
But when I asked how a Democratic administra

men we can uisorgauize mo coiorcu vote, mey
will not vote without white leaders to orgauize
them.' And when I asked one of tho leaders of
the 'white line' movemeut, whoso object is to
draw tbo color line strictly, how ho could hope
to get all the white people, with thair strongly
diverging views, into his movement, bis prompt
reply was, 'We'll make it too d d hot for them
to stay out.' Now, to me, this does not look like
tho American way of carrying an election. All

fierce condemnation as 'carpet baggers.' But
many of these men thns condemned and held np

Ma.EprrOE. TThenlsee my letters In print, I often
find typographical errors I would liVe to correct; but,
worse than all, in the haste of writing, I sometimes leave
the sense obsenre, for tbe wast of a word or a sentence ;
and In the closing sentences of my last letter. I find the
sentence, 'I am caUinj; now," rather savors of the bom
bastic, for which I hereby apologize to all concerned. This
is my fault, and it shall not be repeated again. The last
few Uses of that letter I am ashamed of; and now, as to
the matter In hand, I will say :
The constant assertion of my friend reminds nio of a
similitude I have read of somewhere, aa to assertion and
evidence wherein assertion was litened to a long bow,
the shaft from whlcb may strike the mark, but It drpends
altogether on tho arm that draws it ; while evidence is
like a cross-bow, and senda the shaft with the same force
and effect, whether the trigger be sprung by the hand of
a child or a giant. This "Son of the Morning." has a quiv
er of arrows, neither barbed nor feathered, snch aa chil
dren ne at play, and bis bow Is very long Indeed. Joshua
Harrington or Baron Munchausen could scarce surpass
In my last, I spoke of those stale charges of conspiracy
made against the Church. These things are neither new
nor true. It haa ever been so, from the beginning. The
early Christians were eternally conspirincazalnst the civil
power ; unwillingly, too. It seems. From Xero to Diocle
tian, and from Henry YIIL to Bismarck, 'tis all the same.
Ah, well hath the Master said, To are not of this world,
and therefore the world hatethyou."
Gibbon says: "IX the Empire had been afflicted by any
recent calamity, by a plague, oi a famine, or an unsuccess
ful war j If tbe Tiber had, or if the Mlo had not, risen be
yond Its bankat if tbe earth had abaken, or if the temper
ate order or the seasons had been interrupted, the super
stitions ragans were convinced that the crimes and Im
pieties of tbe Christiana who were spared by the excessive
clemency of the government, had at lengt b. provoked the
Divine justice. The impatient clamor of the multitude de
nounced'lie Christians as the, enemies of God anil man,
and doomed then to-the severest tortures." Decltas aud
FaU of the Jtman Empire, toL it, j its. Thus, you see,
the 'sons of the morning are always ready to denounce a
Christian ; and to ask for proof Is an Insult, and nono but
a bigot wonld even think of the like. "And they are still
plotting," it seems. Do they teach tbe capacity of
man for self government! they are In favor or monarchy.
Do tbey teach that the voice of the people shall rule f
they are minions of the aristocracy. Do they teach obedi
ence to tbe powers that be f they are opposed to the gov
ernment. Is tbe country in danger, and tbey volunteer in
her defence f it is to make themselves tyrants ; and if,
by valor and talent, they rise to rank or station, "woe to
Jonathan," for his days are numbered 1 There Is no time
to be lost ; Sherman and Sheridan have him by the throat
ou to the rescue!
We" are accneed, too, of ignorance, and tbe fell desire of
driving the world Into barbarism ; and In the next breath
they cry, "Jesuits are In our schools, teaching our youths;
look out, or you will all be Romanists in a week or two."
They must be put down. Garabaldl can never bo God
where tbey teach. Down with them! down with them!
Up with Infidelity, let Reason reign ; Infidrl Utann, not
Christian lleason. The free schools are for the Infidel
only; taxation for all, but benefits for these alone. The
Papl sts are opposed to free schools, and wish to keep the
people Iu darkness. Look!! Behold!!! They are build
ing school houses everywhere. They are teaching and
proselyting our children! They are Increasing! They
will overturn the government ! ah ! ah ! The ends justify
the means, you knov; so away with them! And this is
But yesterday I opened a work on astronomy, and find
tbe author has stepped aside from science to asperse tbe
Catholic Church, and has written himself down well a
ninlc. He says, "Koman Catholics are now more enlight
ened. They have founded schools and Institutions of
learning equal, perhaps, superior, to those of any other
denomination in onr country. Grant all this; but why,
and for what purpose! Aiwieer Tbe force of circum
stances, tbe enlightenment of the age, haa compelled them
to move forward. They are ever wily and on the alert.
Tbe millions could no longer be held in tho old beaten
track of Ignorance, to pander to tho few, and Home, com
prehending all this, furesees her Impending downfall, un
less she, too, steps forward in her gilded robe o he then
takes a new tack with her ponderous ship npon t he sea of
mind." Here you see the evidence of another luminary.
There are many other passages of liko Import, but not
quite so very silly or bombastic; and thisis from a book
on science, too.
I wonder If this man conld loro any history! If so, I
would refer him to Anthony Wood's "History of Oxford
College," or to Rev. John Lord's "Introductory Essay to
Froissart's Chronicles of theMiddre Age.' Lord says:
"Did not the earlier schoolmen speculate on the highest
truths of philosophy, and teach tbe most elevated lessons
of moral wisdom, while tbo Xorman and the rrovencal
poets excited, by their romantic and allegorical songs, tho
enthusiasm of a passionato people 1 It was In the Dark
Age. that twenty-five thousand students Hocked to Oxford,
and thirty thousand to Taris. to learn theology, and
jurisprudence, aud medicine. It was In these 'slandered
ages, that we perceive the 'living, precious germs of
thought, the most wonderful intellectual activity since
the age of Pericles. The eighteen folio volumes of Thomas
Aqninas weru filled with else besides mere barbarous
wrangling. "The schoolmen, says Schlegel, 'displayed
not only the most subtle reasoning of the human mind,
but the most refined tenderness of the enamored heaiL
Eveu Gulzot admits. They had merits as brilliant as they
were varied, devoid of affectation, and free from pedantry.
'They were,' says Lord, 'elevated in their solitary toil by
the contemplation of bonndlcss truth. Life to them was
not in palaces and gardens, In velvets and in wine, in
chariots and horses. They made wisdom to consist In the
triumph of the spiritual over tbe animal, and prised life
for its simple pleasures and devout contemplation. Tbey
may not have attained these exalted ends, but their respect
for the spiritual in man was profound. In the chaos of a
turbulent age, their minds acquired force and fire. They
shone as morning stars in the Intellectual and moral firm
ament of Europe.' " Oxford was founded In SSS ; Cambridge
in 915 ; tbe University of Paris In 800 j and soon all Eu
rope was filled with Catholic schools and colleges. Padua,
the A tma 2Iater of Christopher Columbus, badatonetime
18,000 students. Bologna, the great law-school of Europe,
had from 10,000 to 20,000 soon after the discovery of the
Panducts of Justinian, in the eleventh century. The force
of circumstances has not compelled the Protestant world
to found any school like those mentioned, besides hun
dreds of others of like celebrity: no, and Infidelity to assist
ber. Tour Cornell and Yale and Harvard combined wonld
not equal the least of them ; and as to tbe faculty, there
can be no comparison, for branches taught in that age.
Again I quote from Lord's Essay : "Moreover, the Papacy
was a great central power, needed to control tho Princes
of Europe, and settle the difficulties which aroso between
them. The Popes, whatever may have been their personal
character, were conservators of the peace. They preserv
ed unity amid anarchy, and restrained the Impulses of
passionate Kings." Againbesajs: "Tbe Papacy, In Its
best age. Is thought by many profound historians to
bave been Democratic In its sympathies. It gnarded the
interests of the people; it preserved them from the vio
lence of oppression ; it furnished a retreat in monasteries
for the contemplative, the snffcring, the aOicted and the
poor. The monks and the nuns were taught by their quiet
and Industrious life, that
An higher than the warrior's excellencies;
That vast and sudden deeds of violence,
Adventures wild, snd wondersof the moment;
These are not they which generate
The calm and blissful and enduring might.
From their "beehives of Industry" probably disgraced
by the vices of conenbinsge, and tbe follies of ascetlsm
they only issued to relieve tbe helpless, to succor the dis
tressed, to teach thelxnoTiiit,-Tlmrto"kaminiter'celeual
consolation. In the moral power of learning ami sanctity,
we are tempted to exclaim, with DIgby, These surely
were ages of highest grace to man !' " So much for Lord.
He bears testimony to the worth, ability, integrity, piety,
and benevolence of both monks and nuns, but has a fling
at their moral character. The facts of history fie conld
not dispute; he must bear testimony to all these; bnt,
then, "probably" who knows ! Lz. Probably his mother
was a bawd ; who can tell Strange things have happened
in London. But yon see, by this testimony, Europe was
full of Institutions of learning, and able men conducted
But your special objection against the Church is Its cen -tury-proved
disposition to interfere In temporal matters.
This assertion is not borne ont by history. Bnt it ouce
did good service In making the Church odious, for with
some men, you see, "the ends will jnstlfy the means.'
"ow, I ask, is It not almost time to drop this style of
manufacturing history, even In newspaper squibs I The
clear-beaded and honest-hearted Protestant historians
bave ceased snch "twaddle" long since; and notwith
standing their prejudice will overmaster their judgment
at times, they will not deliberately falsify history, as of
old ; and hence you find them declaring that the Popes
were, "In every contest, on the side of the people and for
liberty," and "allied with democracy." But your arraign
ment of the Church reminds me oftbe fable of tbe won
and the lamb. A Iamb drinking from tbe stream of liber
ty with a "reasoning" wolf, is always muddying tbe wa
ters. That stream must be protected ; and lambs are all
alike, and seeed protection, you see the protection that
vultures give them, "covering and devouring."
That the Church of God has a right to teach her ehfldmi
the ways of eternal life, no reasoning mind will dispute
even heathens admit this. Bnt where the line of demar
cation comes in between the rights of the State and or the
Church, who can tell! Is all this left to Caar! "So, sure
ly not. Are the "aona of the morning" infallible authority
in thematter! Letnssee:
The State assumes the authority to say to as : "We
must pass upon the qualifications of your teachers, and,
they mnst receive aa Infidel education first ; tans yets ea
matmimuterttfthrm,ltjonjim. The State la the only
infallible authority in matters of faith for you, Thisis
the first law; by and by you win be told how many aacra
ments there aro In Germany; there are" but two to Eng
land kaown to the law, and to teach more than this Is
treason. And yoo must believe as tho Stats does la this
nutter." "No," say the Christians, "we can't do that.
There ire laws spiritual, aid laws" temporal, and we must
Judge as to the spiritual, and what It commands." Then,
I ask. where does this spiritual power end ! Oh, says tbe
Protestant, "I will tH y" s it la vcrylaln." Should the
State command ns to do what the Scriptures dearly forUd
or what a conscience, enlivened and gnided by the Scrip,
tares, would etrtaWy eowlcnui us for doing. In such a
case. In obedience to the aiaer pau-tr of God. we would
refuse, and like the Christians of old, submit to theeonso
nuences." Of course, the counterpoise of this proposition
U admitted and thU wOesome friend of Ciesar's words it
as follows : "or when earthly ruler says to men. that that
they must not perform. er , rimwitaKW, what
Godricuriyrtb' to do." See EJM Maya.-.ne.

everything to Ca-sar. And so we have here a standard of
revolt for every evil-disposed man to rauy umier. ur,
have but to call their conscience to witness the integrity
of their motives, and thus they sanctify treason. Truly,
the ways of the adversary are past finding out. Thu Is
the best I ea n find to explain the rrotestant Idea of God
and Carsar ; and as my friend gives me nothing but asser
tion, I have to look np his side of the case as well as my
own; andaslwish to do this fairly, I encumber my letter
with Ids straw evidence. The Catholic rule is lUacrent.
Tho Scriptures tell ns to hear the church. Tor "my church
It the pillsr snd the ground of truth." The church, being
divine. Is. as rezirdl-sfiritual thing. Independent and
perfect, and tbe sole dispenser of the "mysteries of God,"
the sole Judge of "faith and morals." God gave bis church
power over spiritual things, and told her to render unto
Cxaar the things that are Caesar's ; and they were surely
to judge of this, orthe chnrch would have ended at once.
for Caesar ordered them to do many things, in the first five
centuries, which the church refused to do. Then, yon
see, they were to bo tbe rote judge in this matter, and it
was incumbent on her to tnoiff trkat beluuyed to Cartar
and she does knov. We bold that "with the pevple alone
the civil power rests; and they may delegato this power
to whom they please," They can withdraw and confer it
again, if it be their sovereign wilL And so their will is
the supreme power in civil msttcrs. Spiritual things are
solely with tbe church ; and unless she be divinely certain
of her power and authority, no doubt or controversy could
ever come to an end. Hon-could she render that which
wat doubtful t and she mnst not render to one that which
belonged to another. God has not left bis chnrch without
a guide lu these matters. In all things of religion and
conscience, the church knows her own Jurisdiction, and
mnst render to the one aud protec t the other. When the
civil power tells me to do or not to Ao that which God has
given his church n teach, I will say to them, Iu the lan
gnage of Piter, "Whether It be Just in the sight of God to
hear you rather than God, judge ye.' And when the State,
in its fully, shall order mc to bear a man uf their appoint
ing, I will say, "You have climbed otr the wall; we
know onr shrpherd-t, aud will follow their voice. But you
we know not." This Is our christian duty. The Popes,
not being Infallible, aro liable to err, and in civil matters
they have often made mistakes, and were they to meddle
in the civil affairs of this or any other government, we
would say to them : This matter does not reganl faith or
vurals, and concerns us alune. We will act In the prem
ises as to ns seems right and proper. The Pope, in no age
of the world, can declare any thing, in matters of faith
and morals, diflonut from that which lias been taught lu
times past. In temporal matters, the Popes lure united
with Protestant Trinccs t war agaiust the interests rf
her Catholic children ; and llauko says the l'oprs of Borne,
humanly speaking, saved Prutrtanti.-ui in the days of
Gustavns Adnlphus. The F.Ick laws an-the experiment
of Bismarck, to sec how much "spiritual torture" the
church will endure, before it will suffer I u ti.lv U to teach
In her name. But this Is something ha can never demon
strate. God, In his own good tune, will tt all things
even. A man, to Ire a gnsl Catholic, must bo a good cltl
xen, and must rendt r oImsIIi nce to the lowers that 1k un
der each and tvery furni of government. Christian or
heathen. This the chunh has taught iu every laud and
every age ; and it harmonizes with the doctrine of the
sovereign ty of the people. Individuals cannot rebel, evea
under bad laws. The masses may.
I hare given this lengthy reference to the subject, from
the fact that this is the great question of European poli
tics tbe one which will soon be made a pretext for a gen
eral war in Europe and this writer in tho JlritiA t)ar
UAy Heeiew is the only one I liave found that seems able
to give us a reason for the faith that is in him ; and he
reasons himself nut from under the authority of God.
For how can he interpret, whero the "wisest fail I" In
truth, be is like the fox that lost his tail, and would advise
all foxes' to be without this useless appendage. Ho has
no faith but such as Is prescribed by "act of Parliament,"
and so desires to seo the Catholic church teaching as
"Bismarck may dictate." Just think of this ! Bismarck !
I had intended to give a refutation of the railing accusa
tion often brought against the church abont Galileo, and
of the Popes denying the earth's motion, &.C. But this is
a question I could not handle to suit myself, short of two
columns of your paper, and I don't believe the good I
might effect would compensate me fur the tronble of writ
ing. And now. In conclusion, let me say, the reason my friend
Is an Infidel is very plain to metad schooling. For had
his parents remembered the admonition of Solomon, and
acted upon it, this "Son of tbe Morning" would now bo a
worshipper of "Jesus of Xazareth," instead of Garibaldi.
