Mh. Editor' Pbun Is not currect in
tbo concluabns ho draws from tho deer
story publlabed in Tub Bulletin yes
terday morning. In tho main you aro
correct in your remarks following Phun.
The fact Is weeds will not dio out by
neglect. It is also trno that certain
kinds of work only aids thoir growth.
Much is said about "Ooliatb," "David" or
"Duty In tho crisis," "cowardice," etc.,
just as though thore was any "Oollath"
around or any "crisis."
It will doubtless bo acknowledged that
those wbo aro expected to "stop into tho
breach" havo a right to chooso their own
timt, place and wuapsns. If you will re
fer to tbo account cf David and
Uollatb you will Had that ho
would not use the implumenis
that weru thrust upon dim. Ho chose hie
own timo, mannor and woapona, and I bo
liova defeated Goliatb. I apprehend that
ho who It tot for tbo dofonce of tho
truth hat n right to toloct his time, placo
and weapons. You cannot put into bit
hands any weapon you chooso, and force
any issues you please. All this cry about
fear, cowardice., &c, is entirely uncalled
for. Thoy havo no existence In tho prom
ises. A question is In point hero. Of
what avail would it bo to discuss roligious
subjects with any mm who doca not be
lievo In tbo Christian's God or tho Christ
ian'tUiblo? The subjects that aro now
agitating the publlo mind (?) will all be
examined in duo timo, and all who wish to

Knowing this, I. Farnbakcr k Son,

buyer in New York, a gentleman full
of years and experience, both in New
York aud Cairo markets, whoso whole
attention is to look out for "bargains,"
not once, twice or three times yearly ;

of the metropolis somo ten years, he is
fully posted iu the secrets of New
York business. That gives us a con
stant supply of new and ilyliah goods

impossible for a merchant to go to
New York twico or threo times auuu
ally nnd buy goods cheap, for when
he's there, there are ethers, yes, thous

sequence, goods with Mich a demand,
must be high.
Tho merchants know full well who
pays tho biggcat prices for goods. It
is tho merchant who conies to New

gourd in the knotvlcdgo of prices, nnd
has only one method to judgo of the
prices of goods, i. o., by tho last prices
ho paid, which aro always high. The
