About four hundred bill have been in
trodueed in the legislature during tbo
Oifl of our cotemporarloi abbrorlatci
tbe Illlnoli Central railroad into tbo 111.

appropriate to call it the III. Threo Cent,

it anything but a very impropor noun now,

Wilton will be in it, and tbe report of tho
tonate Credit Moblllor committee inti
mates strongly that Wilson was not too
good to creep out of the Credit Mobllicr
difficulty last fall lystatlng'a falsehood.
Got. Hekdricks hat signed tho Indi
ana temperance bill and it has now bo.
coma a law. Tho bill passed the sonate
by party rote, the democrats voting in
the-negative. It is far raoro stringent
than the Illlnoli law. It provides that no
license for tbe salo of liquor to be drank
on the premises shall bo issued except on
presentation of a petition signed by a ma
jority of the voten in tho ward, vlllago
or town and requires saloons to close at 9
o'clock in the evening. We predict
that tho women of Indiana will forever
oppose tho repeal of that law.
A 2 fix has patted tbe house ef represent!
atlvei in Missouri providing "that where
two railroads run into any city, the de
pttof which are inside of tbe city, and
' tbe lines of which crow each other outside
'of the city, the railroad companies shall
be compelled to erect a depot at iuch
'crossing, so tl.at passengers may change
'from one train to another without being
'at tbe mercy of omnibus and carriage
'drivers to transport themselves and lug-
gige across tbe city, which they are at
present compelled to do." If this bill
becomes a law it will be a saving of much
expense to the traveling public and work
a corresponding decreaso in the receipts of
hackman and curriage driven.
A BILL to cover the defects in tbe state I
railroad law exposed by the recent supremo
court decision, baa been laid before tbe
house by Mr. Dunham of Henry county.
It provides "that any railroad charging
'more than just or reaionnblo rates shall
be lined for the first offense $2,000, and
for tbe second offense shall forteit ita
francbiae. Charging inoro than threo
cents a mile is to be taken as strong
prima facie evidonco of violation of tbe
law, at it also tbo charging less for car
rying freights for a longorthan a shorter
'distance. There It alio a provision h!
lowing maximum ratci por mile for car-
rying grain, lumber, coal, and aome
' other articles, the charging of more than
'such maximum to be peima facie evidence
, of extortion. It it made tho duty of
atale't attorneys in the leverul countiei
to prosecute under tho act, and super.
viiort are autboized to causo proceedings
'to be instituted and to employ counsel to
aid tbe state's attorney, and any porion
instituting the proceedings will got half
the fine recovered, tbe balance going to
to consist In the fact that It makes on
nit reepowlblt'tor the acta of another.
The eaio related In the last lisuoof tbe
McComb 'Eagle which we introduce at
the "head of 'thin article, it an ordinary
one under the law and itrvot to Illustrate
its workings. Tt appoart that Glover liai
boon a "hard drinker" for twenty years, a
fact of which it ii not probable that Hcih,
the laloon-keoner. was Ignorant. It also
appears that Olovor hai been In the habit,
during hit twenty years of habitual drink
ing, of shamefully abusing his family,
another fact of which it it not probable
tbe saloon-keeper wai ignorant. We are
not informed at to, tho prico of "snulto
water" por glass, nor how many glasses
It takes to mako drunk an habitual "hard
drinker" like Olovor. It may havo ne
cessitated llje purchase of live or tin
or flftoon glasses, at fivo or
ton or fifteen conti per glass, which, at
outside figure?, Would havo boon a mat
ter of two dollars and twenty-five cents
to tho lalooh-kecpor. If O lover paid cash
for hU liquor, it wai not a vory heavy
money making transaction for Ilcih. If
ho got it on trust, its price would bo still
a smallttr addition to tho saloon-keeper's
income In either evont, for a very
small profit, tho taloon-keopor sold to
Glover the enemy which doprlved him of
hiiiensot; lent him homo drunk to his
family; caused him to brutally abuse
them; to destroy bit furnitiiro, and in tbe
not exaggerated , language ol
tbe 'Eaglo' to "raise h 1 generally;" for
tho home of the drunkard is a bell to bis
family, hopolos?, helpless and dospnlring.
Bocauso Glovor is a brute
(mado so perhaps by his uso of
liquor) worse, for cvon tho brutes that
perish turn away In disgust from the pro
duct of tho still, shall Uesh bo privileged
to supply bltn with the poison
which deadens all tho instincti
of his manhood and makes him a torror to
hii family and neighborhood? Is that an
oppressive law which holds Uesh respon
sible for tho consequences of his salo of li
quor to Glover?
Many eminent physicians hold
tho opinion that habitual excessive
indulgenco in liquor is a disease, and hos
pitals for tho euro of inebri
ates are common institutions in
Europo and havo been introduced
into this country. Is that law oppressive
which aims to prevent tho spread of tbe
means which mako inebriates? Shall tbe
doors of liquor saloons and dram shops be
thrown open, and their keepers be sup
plied with cheap licenses to furnish sub
jects for future inebriate hospitals?
The temperance law does not interfere
with the right of men to kocp saloons nor
tbe right of other men to drink in them,
any more than tbe laws which forbid tbe
carrying of concealed weapons interfere
with tbe right of dealers in such articles to
if 11 them, or tbe right of others to buy
them. It does aim to protect tbo family
of tbe drunkarJ from tho consequences of
bis unfortunate habits, and to protect him
self, to as great an extent as is admiitablo
for the law to interfere with hi rights a
a free agent, against their indulgence. In
this it is a merciful and a Just law, in
keeping with the civilization of tbo age, an
in n o way inconsistent with tho liberty of a
free people It is urged by many who
aro opposed to the law that it is a dead
letter in the state. It it pot a dead letter.
In five separate casos, tho tuprome court
has pronounced it constitutional and overy
case hai been n victory for the law, hai
strengthened its enforcement and lossened
the disposition of liquor lollori to dlsre
gard it. The; friends of tbo law do not
claim that it will abolish ilrunkonncss, or
do away at once with tho jnanifold evils
of liquor selling and liquor drinking. But
it it a decided step toward tho accom
plishment of reform in that direction and
the fact Is to apparent that It Is not prob
able the legislature will repeal or modify
SOME QUOTATIONS FROM HIS
LECTURE LAST NIGHT.
THE TEMPERANCE LAW.
Tbe only rase of importunce disposed
of this week before tbe circuit court is
tbat of Mrs. Diana Glover, who sues Poter
Hesb, a saloon keeper in this city, for one
of kir husband's drunken sprees. It ap
pears that Glover imbibed quite freely of
"snake water," went home drunk, threw
a batchet at bit wife, broke and knocked
tbo cook stove to pieces, lore up tbe gar
den, chased one ot bit children up stuirs,
and raised b 1 generally liaising
h 1 in tbe family seems to
be a profession which Glovor bat been
following for about twenty years. Suit
was brought against the taloon keeper bo
fore a Justice of tbe peace, whore a ver
dict in favor ot tbe ulalntlff for ISO was
obtained. Uesh appealed tho caso to tliu
circuit court, where the Jury brought in a
verdict for $200 tbe extent of tbe law.
This is a pretty good lift (or tho Glover
family, and if carefully expended and Ju
diciously managed will give them a better

ill wind tbat blows nobodveood. Thodu.
feodnt in the case has mado a motion for
a rnw trial, M'Comb Eau'le.
In view of the fact tbat tbe question of
fu repeal ot the temperance law comes
up Won the state legislature

pea it, one tide or the other, is of inter

A SCHOLARLY ARGUMENT.
The reasonableness of iuiraolcs mav
bo bbowu by a variety of very import
unt considerations :
I. Whatever Drobabilitv attends
tbo question of revelation nt nil, must
no us conclusively tavorabio to tbo
real production of miracles ; and all
mo evmence in lavor of revelation
must be equally in favor of miracles.
And whatever arguments might bo
used to prove tbo reasonableness of a
revelation, could bo also used to prove
tho reasonableness of miracles; for
miracles, viewed from any standpoint
whatever, are just as probablo as the
revelation itself. In fact, a very f;ood
argument may bo made on tbe proba.
bility of miiacles, aside from their
effect in nutheu hating and supporting
any kdcoIuo and dcfiulio rAvnlntinn
ana if there bad been no revo'atiou of
a hysteui ot doctrines and faith, still
there might bo somo necetsity for mir
aclos 1. To proventand hinder men from
eliding off into practical and specula
2. To keep alivo and in action the
iraproion of direct accountability to
au intelligent God.
3. To iudicato the true position of

II. Again, whatever evidonco can
be produced to settle tho actuality of
oreaiion as an, is iu uic uauic extent
evidence for the production mid reason
ableness of miracles, since tho miracu
lous element constitutes tho very basis
of creative power; and henco everv
proof of the fact that matter has not
been nud will not be eternally soil
existent, is a logical and scientific tes
timony to tho rcaionablouess of mira
cles, and to tho reality of their pro
duction at some period of
tho past. All evidences of nny muta
tions in matter, or of nny limitations
which prevail in nud over it, must ac
cordingly aid tho argument for the
reasonableness of miracles, just to the
same extent, as they demonstrate tho
non-ctornity of matter and tho differ
ence between mind and materiality.
In this viow, tho reasonableness of
tniraoles may bo established on tbo
most s oiontifio foundation ; and iu fact,
if matter had been eternal, still mira
cles would not bo necessary at all, and
(hero would bo no ground for assuming
their impossibility. It is, iudced, very
much to be doubted whether we are
qualified to say, of any event, that it is
probablo or improbable, even where
wo know somo of tho causes i work,
ui.d have some inklings of the inten
tion the part of agents employed ; for it
cannot be denied that tho accomplish
ment of an event may- seem almost cer
tain to one man, ami wholly improba
ble and unlikely to another. The
complexity of causes, agents aud pur
poses which may exist in tho univcrso
and tho range ot Diviuo operations
-i . i
(oven u wo nuuiii lor argument, al
though wo do not believe it, the etern
ity of matter), may be so great that it
uia uc strangely presumptuous Tor
c wisest of men to judec what would
or would not be possible to Doity in,
ins government ot the world aud a
child not yet acquainted with tho al
phabet of letters, might inoro reason
ably judgo of tho purposes nud actions
of the government, touching what can,
or canuot be legally done iu these
Uuitcd States, ilence, if the eternity
of matter could be proved, which it
cannot be, it would uot weigh a straw
agaiust the reasonableness ot miracles
On the supposition of the eternity of
matter, it merely toiiows that wu can
not tell whether miricles arc probable
or improbable; aud then tho candid
are left to weigh the evidence for a
miracle the same as they do the evi
dence for any other event, holdiug
themselves in the light of an impartial
jury, trying the facts in question us
tney wouia any otner tacts, and bound
to decide wholly andcolely according to
the evidence and testimony iu the case.
But on the supposition of tho creation
of matter, it as clearly iollows that
miracles are actual facts, which aro uot
only reasonable, but which have
already occurred in tbo period
of creative antiquity, if not at many
other periods also ; wnich of course
fully establish the reasonableness of
miracle-, independent of the additional
weight which they may derive from
testimony regarding their production,
on the part of eye and car witnesses.
III. Man has mado the demand for
miracles; and so, unless the general
teudeucy of the human mind be alto
gether deceptive and wrong, a meta
physical presumption is farmed for
the reasonableness of miracles. Tho
general course of nature has enough
unilormness to lay n foundation which
will give value to experience ; but it
has, ulso, something calculated to an
swer every leading tendency of the
human mind. The spirit of the nge
just now is to verge across the line.

that the people there used to burn

tious wrongs, llio tenuonoy to re

The Bostoninns, if correctly represented
by tho gcntletnan,who hails from there,
havo vibrated from tho extreme ofouo
ovil to that of another ; yctiu this rase,
as in almost everv other, the real truth
is not found iu either extreme Those
who believo in a frequent supernatural
intervention and those who attribute
everything solely to tho operation of
tne ordiuary causes ol raturo, uliko ro

planation for tho general tendency of

general tondoucy of tho humum miud
is ever less thau the indication of somo
great truth? Such goueral toiuleucy
has never been found to be wholly de
ceptive iu any caso ; and uutil it shall
bo proved to bo so, a self consistency
of respect for uatur.l logic must impel
tbo mind to concede ut least thu rea
sonableness of miracles.
Although tboro aro sovoral points
bearing on thu general teudency of the
humau mind, upon which I should
like to speak, tho limits of my timo
will rcauiro roo to forego that pleasure
now. There are somo books on tho
subject which treat it will.
IV. It is quite true that tho reason
ablcueBS of miracles may bo shown,
from a glimpse at tho absuraitios of
cvory systom which has endeavored 1 1
sotHBide such attestutiousof the Deity,
Tbero havo boon efforts very shrewdly
devised to do away with the ncccseity
of miracles, aud yet the vory efforts
havo always led into positions ai hope
less variance with science and philoso
phy, and havo been, after inoro mature
txamination, condemned and ostia
cised by the reason, To avoid the ad
mission of a miraclo at tho vory com
mencement of man's history, wo have

satisfaction, from tho tudpolo-like off

mals to the monkeys 6' tho old world ;
and from tlienco, through a long series
of wi foil nd forms, to man, II o per
suades himscll tlat man was devel
oped up through !thc series of extinct
forms that ho talks so much about.
His premises, from his own showing,
aro merely hypothetical. Uc fails to
verify even tho facts on which he
claims to liaso his hypothesis, but
blatidy talks of "a serial of forms,
none of which survive, graduating iu
sousibly from somo apc-liko crcaturo
to man as ho now exists." Yet, not
so much as a single fossil remain has
as yet been found anywhere, to which
this scientist or any of his friends cau
refer, as proving tho truth of his hy
pothesis in nny of its features ; and it
is indisputable, that no such develop
ments arc now occurring, if they ever
did take place, which has not been
proved ns yet. Tbo theory of evolu
tion looks better on paper than in prac
tice ; for no facts are given by Dar
win or anybody that provo even tho
possibility of such an evolution up
ward, bterility curses the creatures
produced in contradiction, to Mature,
rendering such beings unable to prop
agate their kind ; which shows that
thu cvolutioual theory must be false,
since it teaches tho development of one
species from another.
This very evolutional theory is tbo
ablest eflort yot mado to avoid the neces
sity for a miracle In man's own case.
Cuuld any miraclo of tbo Uiblo fmako
your choice Joshua and the sun, Jonah
una tno wnaio, etc.,) bo hair iu unreason
able, as thu ovolution of man from a tad
pole? Besides, where did that tadpole
come from, and how did it obtain, presorvo
and communicato life? Dr. Douton gut
puzzled about that and tried, as you rec
ollect, to make crystallization tbebatis of
lite. But can crystallization mako u tad
pole, or d d it evei ? Morouver, what
made things to be crystallized ? crystalli
zation being a more ctfect, and not un ope
rating cause ut all. Every mail who un
der.uudi goology or chemical lawt will
tell you thl,so Urfrr.ru crystallization be
ing tho basil of life, the uietumorphic
rocks which aro usually crystalline, con
lain no traces of fossils; and when dark
limcstocc, replolo with shells and corals, is
couverled into white cryslnllino marbles,
every sign of an organic body becomes ob
literated. Now, cither Doctor Denton was
aware of this, or bo was not; and in either
case, you may draw your own concluilons,
m 1 have drawn mine.
It does seem that every theory of exis
tence, viewed from any itandpuiut what
ever, must Involve the recognition of a
miracle at tbe beginning ; which simply
prove as clearly as the nature of any
problem can be proved, lbercaionab!cnei
of miracles. And as for those who would
tind the basis in civilization, they might do
well lo "remember Loi's wifo "
V. Tbe great truths of natural religlcn
not only vindicate the reasonablenos of
miraclo, but shows tbo unreasonableness
of any argument against such things. Iu
making ibis statement, I do it with my
eyes open totbe dpital which infidels may
try to d rive from it. Tbe Variety of ab-
suidness in the name ot religion, which
men have heartily embraced and practiced,
has been wielded us a strong weapon in
ibo bands of tbe skeptic. Instead of see-
in tr, in theio uistuno-s of lolly and de-
lu Ion, that manliind are so constituted
that some kind ot religion is a moral ne
cussity, so tbat if tho true religion be re
moved a tuUe one will cotne In Its plhco,
the skeptic draws the random nnd unscien
tific conclusion that ull religions aro
equxlly spurious. .Stewart did not reason
thus. II o reasoned in this wise:
'Tho more strange the contradiction,
and the mor ludicrous, the ceremonies, to
which tho pride of human reason has been
reconciled, the stronger is our evidence
that religion has a foundation in tbe na
ture of matr"
His argument is unanswerable, and it
involves another great truth of moment:
Society is elevated by tho cultivation,
novor'by eradication, of faculties funda
mental to human nature; thercforoJBnder
whatever lit;ht presented, every Indiscrim
inate attack upon religion, as such, is a vir
tual retardment of human proeren, sinco
history and philosophy aro alike conclu
sive in showing that some kind of relig
ion will influonco mankind. And more
over, tbat a false ono will como when tho
truo one is removed, can be as plainly
shown although it docs not come within
tho proving of my prcsont lecture to dls
loso tho fact under the associated rela
tions of testimony nn'd tradition.
Thvso roligio'is recognitions of the soul
are tbo primary, not tho sernndry, princi
ples of our very naturo tho great do
raarkttion lines to distinguish humanity
from brutehood which a shown by all
icienco and history, mut bo cultivated
and daveloped, to bring the other powors
of man to their relalivn perfection ; and
it cannot bodoniod, that whatever a rever
sion and a debasement of tho religious
nature occur, all tbe othor powors become
sadlv and fearfully dwarled aud Injured,
just in the samo ratio.

we know that ho has, mlraclos are tbo
most perfect, consequently the most rea
sonable basis upon whioh to construct tho
argument for any dnctrlno of religion ;
And what we thus infer from tho naturo of
tbo case, ii fully confirmed by overy ap
peal to exporlenee concerning tho matter.
Totbeio considerations, I might add
somo othon of equal potency, ero it at all
