Prof. on the Evidences of
Prof. Mitchell delivered the first of a series
of four lectures on the al-ove subject before
the Gillette Association, of New York, oh
Tuesday ovoning. After describing the bound
less extent of epucn, and tbe distance which
separates even the nearest stars, ho said:
Whence are those oljcct.? There were
three hypotheses on which an attempt had
been made to answer tbe question. The first
was, that tbo world was eternal, having nellhur
beginning nor end. Tbe seoona was, matter
was eternal and can not be dojtrnyed. Tbe
third was, tlmt they were tho woik of an
omnipotent, divine Being, The first, was tbe
Universe eternal? Had the surd existed, tho
planets rolled, the suu shone, aud had our
earth itself been circulating round tho sun
irom eternity lliey seemed to be crganued
for ettrnity . But when we examine out cartb,
the only one we cau exainiue internally, we
must, if tbe first hypothesis be coneet, find
animal and vegetable lile eternal. This was
demonstrably not too ease. ibe second
hypothesis, that the matter is eternal, out uf
which the world was formed, and that trout its
creative conditiun it had beon brought by cer
tain immutable laws. Lot them but consider
a partiole of matter: would it either rio or fall
without a power to move it? No.' Chaos
existed, hot oat of it no ordor oould arise
until a controlling power willed it, tho insen
sate matter was organised and a world was
formed. That brought liieia to the third
hypothesis that the wholo universe had beon
called into existence by an Omnipotunt Qod.
In proof uf the correctness of tho third
hypothesis, the speaker told of tbe resolutions
of the various planets, and of the wonderful
dellcaey and complexity of the arrangement by
which they were made dependent upon oaeU
other, and thowiug how tho slightest deviation
from tha great laws, that govorn them would
destroy tho wholo. ive woro living npon a
globe, be said, which was allied to all other
globe3 destroy tbe equilibrium and all was
destroyod. There was not a planet that had
not its size, weight and velocity assigned to it.
Change oitbor, and destruction must inevitably
follow. Could they think of that, ha asked
all that, so beautuul, so delicate, so sublime,
and bolivu that it same to ho so by chance?
Thoro were, in all that was known of tho
heavenly bodies, every evidonoo that each and
every ono of them wusono mattor,govorened
by the same gieat Uw,i, and by tho same groat
controlling power. In conclusion, Professor
M. said he could, if he had tho power, have
built a universe so that there would not havo
boen none of tho change..; which ours is subject
to. Ho would havo nude tho planets cf ono
matter, and placed them so that they should
not have allooted each other, utr 6houli thoy
have been afl'ected by the sua. Ho could havo
lanched them out, and lliey would havo gone
on perfectly in their sphere Now, why was
not the world so built if there wore no dilier
eneee of matter? It had not been becaujo
thero was but one matter, aud matter coulu
not be willed to attract, and not attract.
Hence, the wondrous rohema by which tho
earth was dragged by tho moon, then by tho
planets and by tho sun, hero and thoro, fo that
dissolution seemed inevitable, but stilt tlio most
perfect harmony prevailed, and the earth
rolled on to eternity. Let the mind con
template those orbs and their government, nnd
tho conclusion was unavoidable This h tlio
ompire of Almighty dod.
JtCTTko Philadelphia yr(h Amtrienn lull:'
the following story:
A fow days slnceanolorly lady, accumi'anieil
by hor nephew, a little boy, was returning to
Philadelphia from a visit to her ancestral homo
in Adams County, by tho cars of tho railroad
passing through Columbia and Lancaster. At
Columbia, depoeiting her basket and parasol
on hor seat, sho stepped out to buy the lad
some cakes. Meantime, a mild -ppoken, benev
olent looking old gentleman, of portly nspect
and gentle demeanor, entered unnoticed and
took, tho vacant coat, wnicn nupponcd to be
tho only ono empty iu tho cur, so that tlio old
lady on hor return was obllgod to say, "Sir,
you havo got my scat." "Havo I," returned
the benevolent-looking old gentleman, "i am
sorry for that, but us there appearn to bo no
other, I should be obliged for permission to
remain in it, if you will do me the honor to
let me sit besldo you." The ladv replied the
bad no obbjeotioo, except that bur boy could
not stand up all the way to Philadelphia,
whereupon the old gontlemnn took him ou his
lap. This colloquy attracted tho attention ol
some fussy looking man seated near, who
started up and (aid with a thc.Uiicul air,
''I'll givo my seat to James Buchanan, I'rcsi
dent of the United Statos," for it seems Ihit it
was really Old Buck, who is fond of traveling
about without parade or atton dance. Tho
loud voice in which tho announcement wai
made caused eome one to propose three cheerV
for Mr. Buchanan, whioh wero glvou with a
will, and tho whole ear was coon in an uproar.
But, however, ho may have failnd on other
occasions, Old Buck was the man for such u
crisis. Perceiving that if bo got out of his
place ho should be pestered withband-shaking
and all that, he kept his sent, quietly remark
Ing that he preferred being with the ladies.
Aud so from Columbia to Wheatland ho rode
chatting, unknowingly, with the mother ol
two of the staunchest Republicans in the Stato,
one of thorn an editor, and both writers, for
years, against James Buchanan and his party.
