Where Was Eden?
three years ago a discourse
Sir llenry Uawliiison, before the Uoyul
Society of London, on the site of the
Garden of Eden, was editorially noticed
in the Ledger. That tlisiiuguishetl Assyrian
explorer asserted that lie hail deciphered
the word "Eden" iu some of the
hieroglyphics or cuneiform inscriptions
on the ruins of Nineveh, nnd that it whs
a name given to Babylon ; whence, he
argued that, the last named ancient city
had been built on that spot where Adam
and Eve resided in their state of inno
cence. This conclusion has not been
generally received, not withstanding tlie
high reputation of the author. It is
mutter o controversy whether the sacred
narative is lo bo understood literally or
ailegorically. The Kev. W. A. Scott, ol
San Francisco, in an interest injr paper
just published, atlop-.s the strictly literal
sense. ilia arguments are perhaps as
concise an embodiment of reasoning on
behalf of the literal interpretation
Scripture as could be furnished. The
first o.f them is that Eden was the name
of a country wherein everything needful
to man was produced, aud that this name
was descriptive of it, signifying "a land
of pleasure." The second is that the
Garden (or as the Greeks called it, "Par
adise") was not Eden itself, but only
portion of it. Aud thirdly, that this
garden was eoxlward ol the writer's lo
cation ; all whicli appears to be clear,
from the text, "ami the Lord God plant
ed a garden, eastward, in Eden." The
author of the narative, standing in Syria,
would look eastward when he turned
the direction, of Mesopotamia which
was the name given to the country lying
between ihe rivers Euphrates and Tigris
and that this was the probable site
the cradle of the human race is confirmed
by what follows : "And a river went out
of the country of Edeli to water the
Garden Paradise; and from thence
was parted, aud became into four head."
These heads or streams are respectively
named Pi so n, Gihon, Iliddekel and Eu
phrates, in ilie narative. The first
these Dr. Scott identities with the Phases
or Ilalys of hitler times. Its source
near the head of the Euphrates, aud
flown north-westerly seven hundred
miles, into the lllack Sea. The second
is the AraxcP, which rises teu miles from
the pom co of the Euphrates, and flows
thousand miles, a lilile north of east, in
to tlie (J-ispian Sea. The third, "the
great, river which is Iliddekel," Daniel
x, 4, is generally admitted to be the
Tigris. Aud as to the fourth Euphra
tes there is no dispute about it. Now
ull these four rivers have their sources in
the highlands of Armenia, aud as it
stated thai it wus from the garden that
they parted and became four heads,"
follows that the site ot Paradise was
that portion ot Armenia in which these
sou ices are found. Dr. Suott advances
three objections to tliu theory that the
face of the Garden of Eden waa
changed by the flood as to be irrecovera
bly lost. In the lirst place, he says, it
by no means certain that Noah's flood
was universal, in the strict meaning
that word; but in arguing this lie vio
lates his own principle ot adhering
the slriully literal meaning of the text,
for it is clear from the two narratives
which are given in Genesis of the deluge
that it was supposed to be univeisul
i. ., extending all over the surlace of the
globe. In the second place, be mentions
that the universality ot the deluge
disputed by almost every geologist. And
iu the third place, and this is his strong
est argument, il is . inconsistent with the
narrative, writlenmfier tho deluge,
say that the site of Eden is lost. The
four rivers remain, and their sources cuu
be seen in Armenia. Why should they
still exist, aud yet the laud in whicli
they spring nave changed entirely? Ara
rat is there as it was iu the days
Noah, before ihe flood. Iu truth, there
has been no such transformation of the
soil as certain theologians have asserted.
Man has changed. This region Jay be
tween the Persian Gulf and the Caspian
Sea, where now the wild Arab roams
abcut ; the cilies are desolate, aud the
cruel despotism of the Persian aud the
Turk "hath dried up realms lo deserts."
It must bo said, however, that the
word "Edeu" (signifying "delights")
manifestly used iu various ineuuiugs
other portions of the scriptures, some
times lo denote a people, again to denote
a country, and again as the name ot
a person, and finally in a number ot ways
iucousisteut with the idoa of literal interpretation.

Lincoln's Rebuke of Greeley.
On the 22nd of August, 18C2, Abra
ham Lincoln was moved to write that
remarkable letter t Horace Gneley,
which will stand as a model of perspi
cuity and patriotic resolve for the admi
ration of coming generations. Greeley
wa. petnlently finding fault and dictating
to Ihu President his duty. Impatient
that, so little ntlcnijon was paid to his
rantinsr, he finally nddresaed a coriimtiui
caiiini to the President through the col
umns of the Tribune. Il was b.-rolent
and prestimptotii in the last deirree, for
it seemed to be written upon the pre
sumption that the President did not
know his duty, or, if he knew it, had not
the nerve to preform it. Mr. Lincoln
replied to it at once. In his admirable
letter he gave Mj. Gree'.ey to understand
that his false statements and assumptions
were permitted to pass unheeded. Ilia
false inferences should not be dignifh d
by controversy. The "impatient ami
dictorial tone" was simply tolerated, be
cause of a belief that it was the result of
nn infirmity of temper, not a badness of
heart. The greatness of Lincoln shone
out iu the frank avow al nf a high pur
pose to perform his sworn duly, which
was to deleud and save the Union at all
hazard. He was c' osen President of the
I'nitcd Stales with full knowledge ou
the part of the people of nil sections
tiiat he believed slaerv prejudicial to
the perpetuity of the Union nnd the
maintenance of liberty. Hut his great
trust and his sworn duty was to pre
serve the Const iiiilioiiiiii violate, execute
the laws ns he found them, and ave ihe
Union. Therefore his p'rsonal d.-sreis
could not be permitted to sway his ac
tion or to control his plans. The rebuke
was withering, aud effect uallv silenced
the marplot of the Tribune.. The Chica
go Times has done a good her vice iu re
calling this letter to niiud:

Desperate Fight with a Hog. A
fw days ago, Thomas J. Crayerolt, of
Taylor Township, Harrison county, went
into ihe forest neur his residence, to feed
a large sow, whose pigs were not yet
old enough to leave the bed. Hisjvif'e
and little prattling girl, wishing to see
the pigs, accompanied him. The father
threw ihe 60v some corn, and alter eat
ing a few mouthfuls, she started toward
the child, w ith her huge jaws w idely ex
tended. Mr. Craycrott seeing the peril
of his child, sprang between it and the
ferocious brute, at ihe same time culling
to his wife to take the child awav. Then
commenced . a struggle tor life Let ween
Mr. Crayerolt and the maddened brute,
being a large and powerful animal, she
stood on her hind feet and threw her
fore feet against the breast of her victim
with such tremendous force as came near
knocking him down several times, mean
time making repeated efforts to bite or
cut him about the face and throat with
her tusks. Mr. Craycrofi'u only weapons
of defense were his feet and hands ; and
iu attempting to push the infuriated
beast from his face he got his right hand
several times in her mouth, by which it
was frightfully mangled. The mother,
alter running a few yards, looked buck,
and seeing her husband's life in peril, set
her child down and armed with a club,
started to his rescue; but befoie she got
in reach the husbaud had disengaged
himself enough to get hold of a club,
with which he dealt his antagonist sev
eral heavy blows before she would de
sist ; and even then she made an effort
to renew the .conflict. The spectacle
presented by the victor as he walked
panting from the field, wag truly fright
ful. His clothing was cut into shreds,
aud he was bespattered from bead to
foot wiih blood, mingled with loam and
troth from the inoulh of the enraged
monster. Besides the mangling of the
right hand, he received severe cnts aboni
his left hand and dim, and a frightful
gash above his h-fl knee.

DkakSip.: Your b tter to band stat

able to inciease ihe club for the coining

thing. When we subscribed for your
paper a year ago, we did so believing il
to be a good, sellable Kfpuhlican paper,
and friendly to the present administra

that you have cheated lis out of at least

your lack of principle, and those who
wiil, do so, not bceau-e they want you
for President, not because they think you
filtotill the Presidential chuir, but" on
the other hand, thev belirve you to be

The Stereotyped Smile. Beware of
a man or woman with a fixed smile.
Trust the most hideous scowler before
the being who coes about with an an
gelic, grin, carefully exhibited lo all eyes
nnder any and every circumstance. It
is not natural to smile perpetually, and
no one ever assumes a mask without be
ing conscious of a necessity for conceal
ment. Don't misunderstand me. There
nre yntinsr women, and a few old men,
who break out. into a smile whenever
they speak. These nre not the people I
mean. The smile of which i warn you
is a motionless, hypocritical, fixed ex
pression, which I have seen worn during
a silent three hour's journey by rail,
without the slightest, alteration that
sort of smile which most misguided lady
nrtists present upon their canvass when
they delineate martyrs, saints and an
gels. The-port rait of a lady has a dif
ferent smile the fashion-plate simper
which, though semi-idiotic, is not dan
gerous. Persons of no penetration al
lude to the chronio smile as "so sweet;"
and any one capable of holding the
muscles of the facp tin ler control, is gen
eiallv able to smile sweetly, to move
fpiietly and to use choice language with
measured tones, in moments of the
greatest excitement, and so can always
place n better man or woman at a great
disadvantage, and appear injured and
innocent when actually most guilty.
The Jesuits. In relation to the Jesu
its and the Church at Rome, the contest
t-'till continues; and as Germany has
determined to banish all foreign Jesuits
from its territory, the rulers of the sur
rounding nations have been led to ask
themselves the q-ipstion whether these
Jesuits shall bp admitted within their
own borders. But three or four months'
have elapsed since the enactment of the
law by the German Government against
the. Jesuits, and though it was not to take
effect until six months after its passage,
yet they are leaving the country in large
numbers. The native Jesuits, who, un
der the provisons of this act, are forbid
den to hold public service, are preparing
for a legislative conflict, through the
ir.striimeniality of the Church and vari
ous Unions, when the Diet shall assem
ble, and intend to inundate it with a
flood of petitions relative to tho position
tif the Church. The Government is like
wiso exerting itself in every possible
manner for the collection of evidence to
establish the aggressive agency of the
Catholic Bishops in Prussia, which is
plainly read iu tho emphatic assertions of
ihe Ultramontane journals und others
hostile to the Government.
Tun Mosquito. Nearly a hundred
years ago, James Barton, writing enthu
siastically of the perfect construction of
the mosquito, says: "It is impnsdiblu to
behold and not admire Ihu nuiuziug
structure of its sting. One undeigocs
with pleasure a picture that enables us
to observe how. this pieco of mechanism
ucls." Of course, the world contains
lew who feel the pleasurable emotions of
the naturalist, when the poisonous sling
follows the irritating hum of the hated
and d i ended mosquiio ; still there are
many who will tiud very interesting a
lengthy article about it and ils habits in
a lute number of the Scientijio Ameri
can, The male mosquito lives a short,
idle life, doing little harm, and subsisting
upon the sweets gathered from flowers,
having a daiuty preference for lilies, iu
w hose creamy pelalled bells he pensively
iw iugs. The female is the noisy, ag
gresbive sex, aud makes life a burden to
those unforlunato mortals encountering
her. She stings them and then "brgs"
about it, aud, uot content with her own
evil career, every mopih deposits oue
hundred eggs in a cool, damp place, thus
multiplying aud perpetuating her kiud.
The other dav, a steamboat on the
East Kiver, N. Y., met w ith an accident
to her machinery which caused a good
deal of alarm, 'it is pleasing to read in
the 7Vim of the noble maimer iu which
several of the male passengers conduct
ed themselves. A number of them tried
to jump overboard but were held by
more reasonable people. Ono man
snatched a life-preserver from a woman,
and encased his own manly chest with
it. Another provided himself with six '
life preservers, and was in the aclot put
ting them all on, one alter tho oilier,
when he was forced to deliver five ot
them to women. Altogether the num
ber tit men who detnonnlrated their man
hood by acts such as these were sufficient
lo impress a disinterested person with a
high opinion of tlie average traveling
American. Tlie man who snatched a
life-preserver from a woman, and tho
man who monopolized six of those arti
cles deserve to lie rewarded. The pub
lic presentation of neat leather medals

GiiEKi.Er hopes the day may comn

down among these southern people and
you wiil find the walls of their parlors
decorated wiih pi. .'lures of Jaekson and
Lee, but with tat of no northern Gen

we all pretend to Jove. When these

likenesses of Sheridan, Sherman and

When a northern citizen can utter open

The Rich Man's Entrance Door.
That passage from the New Testament
which reads, " It is easier f.r a camel,"
etc., is familiar to all readers, aud has
perplexed many good men who have
read it literally. Yet the explanation of
its precise meaning is very simple. In
Oriental cities, there are iu the large
gates, small and very low apertures,
called metaphorically "needles' eyes",
just as wo talk of windows on shipboard
as " bu.ls eyes. these entrances are
too narrow for a camel to pass through
in tho ordinary manner, even it unloaded.
Wlc-n a loaded camel has to puss
through one of these entrances, it kneels
down, its load is removed, at.d then it
shuffles through on its knees; he must
kneel, and bow his head, to go through
" the eye of a needle," that is the low
arched door of an enclosure ; and thus
the rich man must humble himself wheu
he enters the gates ot Heaven.
