RELIGIOUS CONTROVERSY UN
I'ROI'lTAULJi. II V KKV. H. U. TIAYKIt, V. V.
For Too Bulletin.
Ry tho term religious controversy,
wo mean public discussions or debatea,
on tlw platform, betweon two disput
ants, one arrayed with, nud the other
"gainst Christianity. Such efforts have
uever beoa known to oventuato in auy
Sometimes two men, both professing
Christians, both subscribing to tho
toachiugs of tho bible, cuter upon a
joint discussion upon some controverted
religious tenet. This is barely admis
sible, rosulting usually in very littlo
if.any good. Rut open controversies
between thoso who love the revealed
religion of Christ and tboe who hate
it, between thoso who buliove in reve
lation, and those who deny it, can do
Wo tbus affirm, riot because thu
friends of Christianity are incompetent,
or unequal to tho task of copcing with
"the oucmics of the Cross of Christ.'
Such an idea is childish in tho extreme,
and nltogcthcr uufounded in I'uct.
Christians hold themselves iti readi
ness, at all times, to "give a reason for
tho belief that is in them." It is not
to the work of defending tho doctrines
and pribciplos of Christianity, that
Christians, lay or clerical, object, but
to ilia prescribed manner of doing it.
Rittlo grounds a-e marked out, issues
undo up, conclusions drawn, challenge
thrown out and Christians are expected
to ''dance attendance," at tho word of
command. And if, forsooth, they do
not leap into tho imaginary breach,
'eager for tho fray,'" it is bocause they
are tho advocates of a "lost cause."
This senseless "huo and cry" auswers
for f-oine, in place of argument.
Now Christian ministers deliver
from forty.fivo to fifty sorraous, every
year, in the public desk, and as in any
more addresses before tho peoplo, at
the weekly meetings of tho church. In
those Sabbath and week-day discourses
tho truth is presontcd, objections met,
difficulties oxamiucd and obviated.
Tho most perplexiug passages como
under careful review.
Tho minister is constantly cngagod
expounding tho scriptures, in tlio
light of history, reason, science, provi
deuce and religion, both natural and
revealed. Rut thoe who clamor for
platform debates and public religious
controversies, do uot, and will not hear
one in ton of thoso dieoourses. Some
indeed do not hear otio in n hundred.
All the controvortod points nro fairly'
and calmly mot in tho course of a pro
tractcd ministry. Rut tlu.te who arc
panting for n "pitched battlo" hear
littlo or tiono of thco thing. They will
not listen wliilo the miuia'.er dissusses
the great religious quustions of tho
day, on the Sabbath, in tho church, ex
cept at rare intervals. Rut if he will
rush off to some public hall
debating room, or Athncnum mid en
gage iu a fight of words, they will uot
miss a meeting. "Circumstances alter
cases." Any sermon, that any min-
istnr may preach, is open nlways lo fair
criticism, reviow and analysis. No
light is hid. Every point nud feature
of Christianity has been elucidated and
substantiated over htnl ovcragiin. No
verbal dehuto can evolve anything new
and no bcni.fits can Iu derived from
It matters not moreover what argu
ments aro adduced iu support of Christ
ianity in suoh debates, thoy do uot
make "one h lir black or white." Men
are not convinced in the boat nnd ex
citement of a public dubato.

I his view of the wholo matter is
also to be taken: if what the oppo
nents of icligio'n profess to believo is
true, then we aro nllalike'atid ail right
in the cud. It cannot therefore pav
to enter into a protracted and cxpous
ivo diciniori about little matter, that
will tnako no difference witit us what
ever. A few hundred millions of hitman
beings take comlort in believing in tho
Christian religion. If infidelity bo
true, it will make no difference with
them hereafter ; why not" then lot them
enjoy their belief? A thou?and pub.
lio discussions can not provo infidelity
true, or Christianity false. There is
thcrofora ho profit in such debates.
And uot only so, but on the contrary,
public discussions between such par
ties upon religion's questions do n pos
itive injur. Rumors, reports, and
counter-reports go from ouo to another,
having only hcar-sayfor authority
charging eaeh disputant with many a
tiling he never said. Nothing short of
the very accurate roports of n skilled
nnd experienced stenographer would do
the parlies justice, aud before the pub
lic could know precisely what was said,
such reports must go iato print. Thin
would swell tho expense? of a week'
debn'e to luur Or five hundred dolluis;
such aro a few of the many reasons why
religious controversies aio both unprof
itable and evon injurious. "As a man
believes so' is he." lVt history aud
experience demonstrate, that platform
debates between the ftiends and foes
of Christianity have resulted in no man
ner of good to tho world. Avoid them
theroforo aud pass by on tho other side.
Iu accordance with tho provisions of
an act of tbc legislature of Kentucky
tho remains of threo of tho honored

of tho Dead" is widely known as ono of

prominent citizens of Kentucky being

Theodore O'llara was a native of
this county, tho sun of a father well
known throughout tho ''tale for his ac
complishments as a scholar and his
worth as a citizen. Recoiving n good
clasuioul education from his parcniH
'O'Uura entered upon lifu LL'sscd with
an ard;ut miud.a haudoiuo porson.and
a brao and geuurous character. He
soon bccaiuo known to tlio public as an
editor iu tho city of Louisville, where
the easy graeu aud kchorarly polish of
his articles soon attracted attention aud
placed him high iu the favor of the
Democratic party. He did not re
tiiaiti long iu this pursuit, but war
being declaaed agaiust Mexico, lio ah
audoued a profession iu which ho ws
rapidly acquiring distinction, and ac
cepted a captain's commission iu the
army. I1U dashing character and po
otic temperament mado him popular
in a service fcuited to his last s and
geniti", aud, sharing tho dangers and
tho glory of our arms from Vera Cruz
to Mexico, O'llara remained in ecrv
ice uutil the termination of the war.
Not long after this poiiod, O'llara was
otic of thoso who lauded with tho force
at Cardenas under General Lopez for
the liberation of Cuba, whon Critlen

ho escaped with a few os tho rwivivors.
