[Correspondence of tho Plattaburgh Roister |
A singular and tragical affair occurred
lere on the 7th instant, to which I was an
ye witness, iv part. A Mr. John An
i rews, a popular and well-to-do farmer in
bo neighborhood, had dug a well some
orty feet deep, and had walled it up about
ifteen feet, when it was discovered that
ho wall was about *to cave in. Mr. |
Andrews gathered up an armfull of short i
wards aud went down a pole ladder
astened to the side of the well, t:> lay them
across the well, so as to present the dirt, as
it fell, from filling up that part of the well
walled up. He had uot more than reached
the bottom, as it was thought, before the
well caved in, filling up to a tew feet of
The alarm was given, and the neighbors
gathered, but all believing him dead, they
returned to their homes to make arrange
ments to come the next day and dig him
out. Mrs. Andrews and two grown
daughters, and several smaller children,
refused to loavo the spot, bat sat on a log
near the well, ctying, until lato in the
evening, when all at once they saw Mr.
Andrews emerging from the well, covered
with clay, and coming toward them 1 Tho
children all ran screaming to the house,
bolted tbe doors, and fastened the win

ghost. But Mrs. Andrews ran to meet
him, screaming at the top of her voice,

that you ?" When she reached him she

It seems that when he got to the bottom
of the well, he looked up and saw the top
giving way, and believing he had not time
to mako his escape, he slipped under tbe
boards, which he had laid across the well,
when the whole thing fell In upon him.
All hope, at first, gave way aud he was
about to let himself drop into tho water
below and end at once his miserable feel

Heptrted Exclusively for thtStato Journal.
Madrid, February I.—The means used
>y the Spanish government for tracing the
assassins of General Prim, have at last
>«en crowned with success. Tho govern
ment detectives employed to unravel tho
mystery surrounding the assassination
lave discovered the assassins of the Gen
eral. Their names are kept secret ny the
authorities meanwhile; but it has been
elicited that ono Gonz-'es, a noted bravo
of Madrid, is closely concerned With the
affair. It is conjectured that he is in the
>ay of some prominent persons holding
iigh official position under the present
government, and that he himself is either
he actual assassin of the General, or that
lis hired associates are the criminals.
It is authoritatively stated that the
lynasty, which was but recently deposed
rom tho throne of Spain, is also im
ilicated iv tho tragedy, which ha* bereft
Spain of one of her greatest benefactors.
Should circumstances, which aro now

The B-cltement In Bordeaux — The
Pail. Branch of the Government
London, February 1. — Advices from
Bordeaux state that the excitement, oc
casioned by the news of the capitulation
of Paris and the treaty which had been
consummated at Versailles, is still very
animated throughout tho city.
The sentiments expressed in tho notifi
cation which has been received from the
Paris branch of the Government, purport
ing to bo official, and taking upon them
selves all responsibility of the negotiations
at Versailles, and openly declaring, aud
proclaiming themselves the Supreme Gov
ernment of tho French Republic, and re
pudiating and discouraging as illegal the
action, while they at the same time, coun
sel the authority of the Bordeaux branch, is
viewed with the utmost scorn and indigna
tion in Bordeaux.
Numerous meetings have been convened,
at all of which resolutions were passed
strongly denunciatory of the course pur
sued by the Paris government. Notwith
standing the depression which was na
! turally consequent ou bearing of the ca
i pitulation, patriotic sentiment still sur
vives in tbo city. All theatrical premuta
tions hay* ceased, and the theatres and
other public places formerly devoted to
amusements and recreation, aro now
opened wide to tho populace, daily and
Theso places arc crowded with earnest
and patriotic audiences. Stirring speeches
are delivered, urging a still more deter
mined resistance to the opposing forces of
Germany and closer unity tor the honor
and safety of the French Republic.
This feeling is not only observable in
Bordeaux, but is shared by the towns in
tho adjacent districts, delegations fiorn
which have arrived at Bordeaux, who
strongly favor a further resistance and
offer their support iv tho cause.

and it is of opinion that land owners can unito
and form such a company as is above indicated,
not only with the best results to themselves,
but the immigrants also. It thinks an indirect,
but a great profit to the community will thence
ensue from the increase of population. Of the

on tho occasion unless ho or she bo in costume

will be a new thing for Richmond, and we
predict a large crowd at tbe Rink on Eighth

apparently completed, has never buen used, so
far as we can learn, even for a trial trip. The
road appears to havo been substantially built.
The Danville railroad director, have been con
templating for several years past the erection
on their propurty on this side of the river of a
huge storage depot. If there is any thing to

Lecture in the CapHolby AB. McOruder. I
The Hall of the House of Delegates was crowd
ed last night with a highly intelligent audience,
who were entertained for an hour and a halt
by Mr. M., with an elaborate resume of passing
political event, in the light of prophecy. We
were attracted to the place by tbe known repu
tation of tho speaker for honesty and out- I
spoken sincerity as a thinker. Though we
happened to know in advance what position,
he would assume, yet wo could not deny our
selves tho luxury of listening to one whose
manly intellect had brokin the fetters of estab
lished formularies, and with tho bible for his
guide, dared to challenge and contend with
hoary errors wherever founil. Wo do not ]
agree with Mr. M. in his conclusions; but wa
do admire that heroic honesty to his own
convictions that prompts him to maintain
them in the face of that prescriptive dog
matism that denounces all who see truth
in a new light. Contented acquiescence in
old "orthodoxy" is the "dry rot" of the human
intellect; and hence we hail, as an omen of
better thing., tho appearance of a progressive
mind, moving in the renlmof theology towards
the goal of higher truths thau those that wero
stereotyped in mediceval ages and transmitted
as a sealed b ink from father to son. Mr. M. i.
a Virginia gentleman, and hence cannot be
suspected of that reckless tendency which, in
the name of " Progress," tramples upon all
that is venerable in the past. His mental aim
Is manifestly to "prove all things, and hold
fast that which is good." Having hatched tbe
she'll ol sectism, priestcraft and precedeut are
to him of no authority savo as "helpers to hia
But we design to state some reasons for differ
ing from the position taken by the lecturer,
that tbe Jews are to be restored to Jerusalem,
and that that city is to be the metropolis ol
tbe whole earth, with tho Lord as a temporal |
king. We think tbo following points will be I
clear to the attentive student of revelation :
There are but two captivities of the Jews re
ferred to by tho Prophets—one in Egypt, tbe
other in Babylon. The prophecies concerning
tbe latter captivity and tho restoration of the
Jews were all give-n either beforo the captivity
(as in Isaiah and Jeremiah) or during tho cap
tivity as in Ezekiel,David, Haggal and Zecba- I
riah. The return of the Jews from tho Baby
lonish captivity fulfilled all those prophecies,
and there is nothing in tho Scripture to war
rant the expectation of a third return. They
have accomplished their use as a separate
nation, having preserved the "Word" and tho
prophetic "genealogy'Yoncerning the incarna
tion of tho Lord, as the Jehovah in whom all
ancient prophecies, types, Ac, had their literal
fulfillment. With His advent began a spiritual
fulfillment of those prophecies—tbe "letter"
which "kiileth" is to have no farther fulfill
ment. The "spirit" which "msketh alive" is
hencrforth to be accomplished and realized by
the reign of truth, when He who is the "Light
of Truth" comes the second time upon tbe
clouds of Heaven that ia upon the "clouds or
obscured sense of ihe letter." Hence Paul
says that henceforth "he is not a Jew who is
one outwardly," and in Hebrew, "ye (the
christians of hi.day) are corns unto Mt. Zion
and unto the City of tbo Living Qui"—the j
It is, ergo, in this Spiritual Jerusalem that
the Lord is to reign King of Nations, a. be I
reigns King of Saints. In proof of our first I
position, (that prophecy concerning the Jews
points no further than Babylon for its literal
tulfilmont,) we refer to the word, of the pro
phecies themselves. In Isaiah xi. il. you And
this declaration : And it shall come to pass in
that day, that tho Lord shall set his hand again
a second time to recover tho remnant of His
people, <stc. The captivity in Egypt being
first, that in Babylon being second, where is
the room for lookiDfr. forward to any future
literal realization of these words? In the
l-»er prophet, you will find an i qu illy specific
mention ot Babylon—c. _ , Zecb. 2. 5— 8,
where the prophet Bays: "Deliver thyself, O,
Zion, that dwellest where the daughter of
Babylon," &c. We grant that Babylon has a
spiritual ns well as a literal significance, and
that there is now existing a spiritual captivity
in Babylon, deliverance from which is vet
future. But tbero is a spiritual as well as lite
ral sense in niithe prophecies. What wo lift d,
therelore, is an eye to soo spiritual changt-s
now going on, in fulfillment of prophecy—tbe
day of literal fulfillment having past when He
"of whom Moses and the prophets spake" sai J :
"Woman believo me the hour cometli when ye
shall neither iv this mountain nor yet in
Jerusalem worship the Father — tho hour
cometh, and now ii when the true- worshippers
shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth.
Again the limitation of the literal fulfillment
is expressly given, wbeu our Lord says : "The
Law and tho Prophets wero until John, since
that time the kingdom of Heaven is preached,"
Ac, ». .. tbo spiritual kingdom. Again, "my
kingdom is not of this world," not "to hero,
nor to there, for tbe kingdom of heaven is
Mr.jlcGruder as a lawyer will understand us |
when we say that ho "sticks in the letter"—
according to our view, just what the Jews did
in our Lord's day, when tbey struck and made
shipwreck of their theology. They wantod a
«1 tnai" kinj,', and a "literal" i saltation over
all tha nations of tbe earth; just such as Mr.
M. promised to the elect.
A kingdom in which we (the Faithful) aro
to come in for a sharo of temporal glory and
preferment, is a vory pleasing prospect for our
But we incline to think that a reign of
Truth, fiesbly opening out in the Word, and 1
of Righteousness, morefully exemplified in the
life, is a more rational fulfillment of those pro
ihecies that sny " Jerusalem shall be, and ba
tailed a city ot Truth" (Zech. 8. 3). As John
aw this New Jerusalem descending from God
tit of Heaven, would it not be wise to look in
hat direction for the Light of that City that is
o be tbe Light, the joy, and rejoicing of the
whole earth ? The prophet Joel 1,3, 17) makes
his matter very plain when ho says "I am the
,ord your God, dwelling in Zion ;" since the
lion in Jerusalem wan confessedly not the
Zion in which Jehovah was then dwelling,
why should we longer wait for the Lord to get
o an earthly Zion, especially when we think
hat, perhaps, Heaven is. after all, a more
appropriate pluce for the Lord ot all worlds to
dwell? Surely Mr. M. cannot think that the
Jroat Jehovah i- going to leave in poison the
'fhrono of the Universe or transfer His empire
rom tho inacces.-ible glory to this atom of an
earth, leaving all the innumerable earths of
the Universe in orphmage, to envy our un
merited pre eminence among the planets.
But Mr. M. thinks that because the Ten
Kingdoms, or the Dynasty of the Ten Toes,
did not have an existence until in our times,
therefore, tho prophecy concerning the resto
ration of tho Jews must be contemporaneous
in their fulfillment with the overthrew of that
dynasty 1 Too rest, Mr. M. The two things
belong to different dispensations. The Too
Dynasty of clay and iron went to pieces or
separated into Ten Toes precisely in that cen
tury, when truth iv science, art, and religion
realized a fiesh unfoldment and application to
the advancing civilization a,mong men. If the
Lord i< not creating now a "new heaven," He
St.iinlv is creating a "new earth." Some
us think He is as really doing the one or tho
ier; and that if Mr. M. will lend an atten
e ear to what the Spirit saith to the churches
he will h nt the rumblings of that "stone cut
out of tbe mountain," which has already i
broken in piec-s the temporal dynasty o! Baby
lon or the Pope.
To any may des'tro to know how pro
phecy is being fulfilled from a spiritual stand
point, we say read "Light on Last Things,"
by W. B. Hayden, to be loiitid in the library
of tbe Young Men's Christian Association of
But time and space fothid oar sny ing more.
We have only to remark, that Virginia should

effectually oToies every sky-light opening to
