WHKBKFORE VK OIVE UP THE
RIDDLE AND THROW UP
Mr. Km tok: In your issuo of tho 7th
Inst., I had obsorved tho misquotation in
tho uso of tho word modulation for un
dulation, but supposed that most porsons
would see at a glance that tboro must be
a mistako eomowtiero, and so thought It
not wsrth while to correct it; but it soorns
the bypecritic and very astute editor of tho
Bulletin, imagines be sees somothing
monstrous and no less 'than infidelity.
What I did say was, that a universe with
out intolligencios so organizod as to bo
conscious of tho sensations resulting from
the impinging of tho undulations In tbo
various fluids surrounding us would bo as
dark as night and as silent in tho tombi
and all I have to say Is, that If you cannot
understand this, your understanding must
bo excedingly obtuso and your knowledge
ot oven tho rudiments of natural philosophy
exceedingly limited.. Your criticism In
this morning's papor reminds me of tho
old adago, "That weak critics magnify
trifling orrors," and in this instance you
havo flouedcrod around and mado
as much fuss as though you wore swallow-
ng an elephant, when In reality you wero
in pasms over imaginary conjuring of
your own production. And as to your
faintest Impressions (tboy must havo been
faintly faint as thoy must havo resulted
from supposed shadows in your own ox
tremely pious roligious mind) as to tny in
tont, allow mo to fnform you, wero with
out a shadow of foundation, andin my
judgmont it required badly diseaeod per
ceptions to soo or even imagino you saw
anything infidel in my locturo. For your
especial benefit I will statu that my object
was to state a few tclontlfic facts in such a
mannor as would tund to increase effort
on tho part of thoso who hoard me in ob
taining knowlodgo of tho scientiflo facts
of io-day. i buvo always bolioved that
truo religion, whose crown is charity and
goodness, was aidod by education )iu re
gard to tho phonomona around us.
Your effort to wittily critlciso what I
said in regard to color is certainly a flat 1
falluro, for that, color is tliejuaiuo given
to tho sensations rosulting from tho shock
of tbo dltleront wavo longths In tho oth
eric soa, is as well established a fact in
philosophy nmong tho leading scientists
of tho day, Huxley, Tyndall, PJnmmorias,
Roscoo, Barnnan, Silllman, nod others, as
that tho world is round and rovolves
around tbo sun, thoroby causing a change
of seasons, day and night, ote. Thus you
see your ignorance mako4 you seom im
pudent, although you aro naturally vory
And now allow 1110 to say, in conclusion
that 1 think that tboro can bo 11(1 othoric
nor any other sea or anything 0K0 near
tho land of your nativity that would havo
a tendency to give you acutenesi of per
ception in regard to tho plain toachlngs
of scienco, anil so, considering your lack
of early mental culture, 1 pais you ovnr
to tho editor of the 'Sun,' hoping that you
may by roadlng this Journal of light bo
so onllghluned us to bo ablo to understand
tho plainstatcmeuts of sclutitillo facts,
and then wa hopoyou will.'soit tho dltt'ur

R. S. Bkiqiia.m,
DR. BlUOHAM'M CARD.
Our readora will learn with rugrut that
In our review of tho ablo lecture of Dr.
Brfghnm wo did that gontlemsn groat in
justice. Wo uvldently misunderMtood him,
Wo were unfortunately laboring under
tho impression that ho had said: "Tho
univomu without Intelligences so organ
ized ai to receive Impressions from modu
latioos in tho various liquids surrounding
us would bo as sllont as the tomb and as
dark as night," but what ho did say was s
uuiverso wltuout Intolliguncles so or'
ganizod as to bo conscious of tho sonsa
tions rosulting from tho impinging of tho
undulations iu thu various fluids surround
ing us would be us sllont as tho tomb and
as dark as night." This statement makes
all tbo dlllerouco in tho world, and wo ad
mil tat such a universo would bo very
disagreeable. We prefer s universe in
which the sensations rosulting from the
i iiplnging of tho undulations in tho vari
ous Hulls surrounding us are not wsstod
on Intolllgoiicies so nrganlr.sd as to bo un
conscious of such sonsatlons, Any other
kind of a universe would bo as silent as
tho tomb and ns dark as night. Thero
foroAvo havo now no doubt the doctor's
locturo was not an Infidel discourse.
"How abioluto the knave is I" oxclaimed
Hamlet when tho gravo-diggor gave him
an Impudent answer. Doing now ongaged
ig an effort to dig n llltlo grayo for our
scientifically literary or literarily sclou
title or tcientiflc-literary friend, tho doc
tor, wo shall also be "absoluto" hyper
critical, lot us join tho doctor in saying.
In pursuance of this dotormination, wo
assort that, whon tho doctor usod the lan
gusgo abovo quoted, ho did not say what
ho wishod to say, and what ho intended to
say was nclthor scientific nor sensible
When ho spoaks of a world containing in
telligent beings so organized as to bo un
conscious of tho sonsations resulting from
tho impinging of tho various fluids, otc,
ho uses tanguago without moaning. Un
dulations in tho various fluids impinging
whaf Tho doctor has ncgloctol to tell
What tho doctor intended to say was
probably this : "A worln without intelli
gent beings so organized as to be possos
ej of tho power of feeling tho sonsations
wo now fuel und know aro tho result of
tho undulations in tho various fluids
around us striking tho eyo and Hie car,
would bo a world in which all who existed
would bo deaf and blind,'' If doaf and
blind tbey would also bo dumb ; and If
deaf, dumb and blind thoy could not bo
intelligent beings. So that a world in
habited by boiogt so organized as not to
exporlonco tho sensation resulting from
the impinging tho eyo, ear and other parts
of tbo body by tho undulations in the va
rious fluids surrounding them would bo a
world of idiots. Tho doctor says, by Im
plication If wo apprehond his meaning,
that such a world might contain Intelli
gent beings. If ho does not mean to say
this why did ho not say so in plain lan-
guago aud nogloct to rovol In Impinging
undulations and othor verbal luxuries of
that kind? Tho fact is, a world in which
the sonsations resulting from the imping
ing of tho undulations, otc, would make
no sensation would be an uninhabitable
world lor man or usaii. 11 would bo a
world without life.
Wo hopo wo havo mado our meaning
plain. We havo tried to be lucid, so that
tbo reader might bo conscious of tho fact
that what we havo written had impinged
bis mind and mado It noisy with under
standing und as light as day.
But whatever wo may bolicvo on tho
subject ot impinging undulations, there
can be but one opinion concerning the
Ethorlc Sea. In it tro wave longths tho
shook of which is what wo call color.
This is beyond question a fact. Brigham
says so, and Huxley and tho othor groat
scientists bavo not had tho temerity to
contradict him. Reason also agrees with
Brigham. If color is not tho shock of the
wave longths in tbo Ethorlc Sea what is
color? and II tho shock of wave lengths
in that sea is color what is the shock of
wave lengths out of that sea7 This logi
cal slateraont of tbo question must con
vince ovory ono that Dr. Brigham was
right when ho mado his remarks about tho
Etherlc Sea and that our blunder came
from ignoranco of geography and science.
Tho scionco of wavo longths wo never un
derstood, and to the question of color out
side of politics wo nevorgaro a moment's
consideration; but Mis wo hate learned,
that mon of the caliber of Dr. Brigham,
who havo bsroly sipped of the water of
the Pierian sprintr, who are only smatter
ors in the rudiments of science, who havo
pukod up only a few of tho pebbles that
lio upon tho shores of tbo mysterious
ocean of philosophy, and yet have the as
surance to profess knowledge tbey do not
possoss and the temerity to question tho
Almighty to his faco and call His wisdom
folly, should bo pltiod not denounced.
Thoy aro liko wanton boys who swim on
bladdors far beyond their depth. On the
bladdor of self-conceit our friond, the doc
tor, has floated out of sight of land in tho
Ktheric Sea, and has bocomo unconscious
of tho ''sensations resulting from tho im
pinging of tho undulations in tho various
fluids that surround us 1"
