The Internal Revenue Troubles.
Last week Collector Brayton and
Marshal Wallace called on Governor
Hampton. to compare views as to the
proper mode of suppressing illicit dis,
tilling and tobacco peddling In the up
country. The Union County rescue
and the general difficulty of enforcing
the revenue laws was discussed, wit.h
little progress toward agreement ais
to, methods. After tbe interview,
1Srayton sent a long communication to
Gov. Hampton, presenting his views
again and replying to Gov. 11am pton's
objections as to the character of men
now employed as revenue agents. He
closed with a proposition that. Gov.

we cannot, then it matters not a whit
whether we have a Bible at all, for a
prejudiced'eyo will not find the road
to Heaven, it is said to be narrow and
straight. This is the Divine Law
that we are to look into, ouI' souls are
-tatakeon It In what language was
it first written? The. world seems
agreed that the Old Testament was
vriften in the Hebrew, and the New
Istament in the Greek. Who trans
lated them into Qur language? The
first, by John Wickliffe, was finished
in the year 1884, and was used for
over one hundred and thirty years.
Wm. Tindal's came out in 1530, (these
men are claimed to be Baptists,) Miles
CQvordale's was the next, followed by
Matthews. Tunstal and Heath (two
Bishops in 1541) translated one, by
order of King Henry the Eighth.
Some historians say this was known
as the Bishops' Bible, others claim
that thc one known by that name was
translated later, in Queen Eliz*abeth's
time, and revised under her order, by
some of the Bishops. In the year
1610-268 years ago-King James the
Sixth, of Snotland, and the First of
England had our present translation
gotten. up by a committee of 47 learn
ed men. Remember this was neither
of the Apostles by that name; but
James, the son of Mary, Queen of
Scots, a Catholio. What does our
Histories teach us about him? He was
a man of some learning and wit, but
very weak mentally, believed that
kings were the deputies of God, and
that they were only accouhtable to
him for their actions; chose for his
ministers, or itnmbdiate friends, mean,
weak and profligate young men, in
preference to those of ability and
character; and some say he wias a
great eoward-would shed tears ait
the aight of a sword or blood. iIe is
said to have been a Protestant, but
selecd a Roman Catholic consort for
his son; probably cowardice kept him
from declaring iimself a Catholic, as
his mother wvas beheaded on account
of a plot of the Catholics to miurder
her cousin Elizabeth, Queen ot Eng,
land, and put her on the throne. This
James Ilaid down certain specific rules
to govern thme translators. WVe don't
know what these rules were, 'ecept
two, which wams to followv closely af ter
one of the old tranislations, (the Bish
ops')'atmd not to translate certain ecle
sinationi words, etc., etce Do' the
Scriptures teach us that James was
inspired, or do we sco anyt.hing like
iznspiration in him that we should
cogsider his mark and the ground be
hind him sacred? Are we not to look
into the old original copies of the
Law? I not only think it our right,
but sacred duty, to look closely into
them. If the translation is good, we
can only say well done, thou faithful
of old. If not, let's have a better one.
If he burned the old Hebrew and
Greek coppies, then~ we may only
have the reveolation of James, and not
of God and Christ. Butt we have the
eame old text -that his translators had,
with as great facility tor translating.
Who is getting up the new transla
tion? I confess I don't, know much
about it; but I hear 14hat it is the
American JBible Utuion Publishing Co.
It's face certainly carries on it a
high order of respectability. I have
coufidence enough in our churches to
believe they would not impose any
thing onsus worse than King James
did. England was almost constantJy
in religious wars, he;' soil dyed in her
own blood. No liberty of press or
speOe pan be more prejudiced than
they derd. it Is s.aid that Queen Vfc
torla, by far of a more pure character
thani hew' ancestor', does not consider
the transalation so immaculate that it
it shouki statnd forever; bu:t hhs or,
dered,' or consented, to another in her
country. From what little I know of
the Greek lnnguage, I think tho old
translation a very good one, and that
the translators deserve credit for it,
copskceri ng, the revolutionary times
in which, they lived; but there as not
a Leionm on earth that givea "Bap
tize" asthe definition of the Greek
V#6rd "1aptizo." They have cer'tainly
turned out a mongrel on that word.

the future outlook should awaken the
immediate attntion of Congress. The
conflicts in relation to cnrrency should
be settled as soon as possible. It
would seemn that a silver dollar should
be coined of equal value with gold, and
be made receivabjle in payment of all
debts. Such action would stimulate
the coinage of silver and prevent spe,
eulations in gold. A proposition has
boen made which is receiving oonsid%
oration among the hard money men.
It is to coin a dollar from both gold
and silver consabined. The dollar
piece would contain 222 grains of sil
ver, 25 grains copper and 9 grains
gold. The representatives of the
measure claim, that it is practicable
and possible to unite the two metals
