Virginia once tbere was a party ol
horsemen, who went deer-huniine.
There was narrow pasesge wbere tbe
slatr were known to pus. An old darkey
was furnished a musket and told to guard
Ida passage- After a while tbe game was

rnuw.
Tbli correspondent tlvsi expression to
one form of Christian thought. In refer
ence to Infidelity. To treat with con
tempt all discussions ot the tencti of tbn
Cbrlitlan religion, li, in the opinion of
many profeiiort of that religion, the moil
effectual way of meeting the efforts of the
keptlci. Daring the pan forty yean, In
which modern skepticism hai bad Iti blrtb,
the Cbrlitlant bare endeavored, bow
vainly li proven by the strong bold unbe
lief hai obtained upon modern toclety, to
crush It by the policy of contempt. In
the olden time, tho raik and the faggot o'
the theologian were relive In turti to
luppren duubti of the Infallibility oi the
priciU, but In theie later day
the ineer of the prelate and
the icofflng voice of tho Chrli
ilan layman have taken their place; and
with pleaiure we eay, have been inetfecl
ual to suppress discussion and search for
the truth.
Wo know tangulne Chrlillani believe
that skepticism hai made no advance
hai gained nothing like a victory In In
contest with orthodoxy ; thoy actually be
lieve tho Fabian policy of the prints bat
been successful. Thii li a most latnenta-
ble error. Even to far back at ltiC9
Froudo could lay truthfully: "At
'thii moment a general doubt
'! coming up, liki a thunder
'storm against the wind, and blackening
'tho iky. Tnoie who cling molt tern
'cloutly to the faith In which they weto
'educated, yet confess themselves per-
'pleied. Tbey know what they beliove,
'but why they believe It, or why thoy
'should require others to believn it, they
'cannot tell, or cannot agree."
This, we know, it the testimony of a
doubter, but proof of what we have said
is furnished by tbo evidence of men who
land in the fnut ranks of the Cnrtsiian
religion. The Klght Iluv. the Lord iiittiop
uf Gloucester and llrlslol, KngWnd,
in 1870, ip ke of "the skepticism and un-
'belief which for the Inst few yean have
' beun distinctly, traceable in all olassos:''
doubt is uvurybere," exclaims tn
Klght Kurerond the Lord lliihop of Win
Chester; "scientific discovery," layi Kev.
Mr. Fowle, "is bringing man faco to fare
'with tbe dcepost questions of rellgiiui
' belief, and it is melancholy indeed to
'notice' tbo absolute ignorance of popuUr
roligiunism, and its popular loaduri, ai
'tn the truo naturo of tho approaching
'crisis." We might pile up, mountain-
high, evidenco of ibis kind going to provn
tbat thodo-nolblng policy of tho Christ
ians has been a failure. Skepticism ha
not killed Itself jumping. Ii'Ulng it
alone-'.r. tbi) hope It would do so has benn

not as of old with firo and sword, hut with
Ionic. Science must be ctlled tn the aid uf
Christianity, and history ri quired to vin
dicate its claims before tho trisunal of tho
world. Intellectual difficulties that pre
sent themselves to tho inquiiurs concern
ing Christianity, must be removed, and
not be, as Froude says they are by learned
prelates, treated as If they deserved ralbur
to be condemned and punished than con-
idercd and weighed These difficulties
are tbe sincere preplexitiei ol nonesi
miiidi and must be respected by tho
priests.
Surely we would all rather believo tha
disbelieve. Make man A. kiu tbat, (to
speak In the vernacular ot tbe
put pu) there is a crown
of glory laid up for all
who walk in tbe leading string of the
church, and who will then wander after
tho vagaries of tbe Diintoni, thuso
echoes of tbo thoughts of tbe deep think
ers who doubt 7
Let ui as Christians be charitable. He-
cause iff believe, should we hurt thon
who have not faith even ai a grain of
mustard teed? The people who liiten to
Denton are terkeri after truth ; and if
the Kuv, Mr, Thayer willconvince them
that they should walk in tho gmpol path
they will do io. But Christians do not
iwck to convinco these men. They burl
at them anathemas, vlllity, abuse thorn ;
and, at last, doubt in them become
hostility, and men who only
ought at first for truth are made parti
san of unbelief, who, no longer seeking
to know if trulb is within tbe walls of the
church, assail thorn with shouts of hatred
and desire their downfall; thoy become
as intolerant in opposition as most Chrir-
liani are iu belief, and are ready to believe
all that tbo spoitlei of skepticism teach
not because tboy have weighed in '.he
scale of roason ibose teachings, but be
cause tbey aro prepared by sympathy m
believe tbe teachers who do not believn
the tends of a raliglonthey started out to
Investigate but were driven to oppose.
Skeptics of this kind may be pur
doned for believing lucb twaddle
at Denton treated bis Cairo au
dience to on Sunday night; they no longer
tetson in their unhallef; they do not bo
lieve, and therefore tbe most fonllih argU'
wants in defense of their position Is up
plauded without thought, and he whocrit
li ices tbem Is denounced ; they have car
ried the blind folly and intolerance of un
reasoning Christianity into Infidelity ; as
tha Christian used to reply to a doubt
with a blow, io these infi.uls in their In
tolerance have como to the point
where tbey alio would reply
to a doubt in their belief, or
rather unbelief, in tbe is me way. The
itory of Christian Intolerance may be read
In the history of tbe Inquisition and tbe
stake, that of in&ielity in the bloody pa
ges on which ir recorded the horrors of
the French revolution.
Christianity will survive all these at
ticks, but ill votaries must learn wisdom
They must not let the buck ron in the ex
pectation tbat it will jump itself Io death

weapon with which iti life can be taken
