Ik a few days wo expect to mako many
groat improvements In Tim Bbllktut,
and hopo to rccolvo patronago from tho
pooplu of Cairo and surrounding country
that will justify the expenditures wo havo
made in doing to. Tub Bulletin has
lived by n strugglo and must tor yoirs to
coino. No dally pspor can oilit in n city
ot the size and pocullar population of
Cairo without n strugglo for oxlstonco-a
struggle stubborn and continuous. Llttlo
cities have llttlo dally papors, and little
dally papors of llttlo cities do much of tho
work of building tbo little cities into big
ones. Tboy aro carpontora who put joist
to joist and board to board ; brick masons
who pi co brick upon brick ; trumpotors
who Invito tbo peoplo to como within tho
walls and abide in them. Tho llttlo pa
pers benefit thomielvos in this way. They
grow with the growth of the citlos in which
they am located. When tho llttlo cities
coato to bo little, tho little papors also grow
out of tho habit of littlonoss. Tub riUL-
lbtin is little paper in a llttlo city. It
not a 'metropolitan journal' by a long
shot. It is not ovon at good a paper at It
should be, and as its managor would like
to make It ; but no struggling Journal can
bo what it might bs. After awbilo, when
wo havesucccodol in wiping out tho diffi
culties that now surround us, Tub Bullb
tin will bo to Cairo, wo hope, what the
Bopubllcan is to Sprlngflold, Mas
sachusetts the particular Institution
that gives to the city Its
greatest colobrlty. Even now, with
Its characteristic apaimodio ioaturos Its
raclnets of ono day and dullness of tho

ness ot to-day, Tub Uollvtih has ac
quired not ft llttlo reputation and hat
reCostod tomcat loatt of its notoriety on
Cairo. All wo ask Is tbo liboral support
of our cltlzint. Tblt wo must havo or go
down. If tho poopto of tho Lord had
not held up Old Joshua's bands, when it
becamo necessary to lengthen tho day, tbo
pooplo of tho Lord would havo "gono to

havo had tbo pleoiuro of striking nt Hoy.
Mr, Thtyor, Tblt it n caso in point. It
toacho', in our opinion, tho duty
of tbo people of Cairo who uro tho peo
pie of tho Lord to hold up our hands
tbo bands of tho Joshua of this peoplo,

with a very oloquont tcrmon In tho Pret-
byterlan church, which, although moro

others bofore It, had tomo vory objection-

that they convey prtclsolythe tamo lento

But tho dove found no rest for tho tolo
of her foct, and roturnod unto mm into
tho ark and ctr. The ark or Noah was
compared to Jesut, and tha dove to msn.
After a lengthy, thougli interfiling uo
torlptlon of tho scenes as synonlmous
with tbeohrlitlan plan ol reuempuon, u
was said that! Man hud invonted nume
rous religions, among which ware Dolsm,
Atheism, Hplrlluallsm, Darwinitm anu
total Infidelity, neither of which wero
founded upon llxd principle!, oithor eel-
ontlfle or revealed.
Tblt It a broad assertion, and It Is my
opinion that, In tho proionce of a Denton,
Underwood, or Huxley, 11 wouia oiiucr
not have been mndo at all, or at least In
amodlfiod form. Merely to deny that
either or all the above named
religions nro founded upon tcientlflo prin
ciples, nmounti to nothing, and Mr. Den
ton's afllrmativo balance! Mr. 'mayors
No ono affirms that Ihcso religions nro
founded upon revealed principles, and
heneo a denial oi tblt point, on tho part
of Mr. Tbayor. is unnecessary.
But wo nro told Hint Christianity Is
founded unon revealed principles, or
rovolatlon. What is revelation? Whon
appllod to religion, It means something
communicated iirimoJIatoly from GoJ to
Admitting tbnt something wnsrovealod
to any poriop, l, was revelation to that
person only, and whon bo tolls it to a third
person It coaies to bo revelation to all
tboso persons. Jlevolatlon is necessarily
limited to tho Urtt communication, and is
only hearsay whon ono person tolls it to
anothor. llorelatlon cannot be applied to
anything of which man is tbo actor, and
benco all tho historical nnd anocdoto parts
of tho biblo aro not rovolatlon, nnd there
fore not tho Word of God.
But what remains ol tho blblo when
you tako out all tho anecdotes and tradi
tions ? Llttlo elio but tho book of revela
tion, nnd that Is such a mixture of non
sensical connundrums that it requires an
other revelation to explain it, but I havo
boen told that tbo. vory fact of thero bolng
unoxplalnable parts in tho bible provos it
to bo tbo Word of Ood.
If it is unnecessary that man should
understand some parts of tbo bible, It wni
equally unnocotsary to say and record
them. On tbo other hand, it seems
strango indeed that Ood should ordnr
such things wrltton in a manner that man
cannot understand tbem and thon curse
him tor not acting according to tuch writ
ings. Taking Iho historical and nnocdo
tal parti, and that book of riddles, ltovo
Iation,out of tho bible, how much revealed
prlnclplo remains to build Christianity
It was furthermore asserted thai thero
was no religion which gavo satisfaction at
the death-bed but Christianity, and to sub
stantiate this statement, tho dying words
of Vvltalro and olhors wore quoted.
1 hopo I will offend no ono when I say
that such a statoment could only havo
boen mado In a thoughtless manner by
ono, who, thinking he waa speaking to a
flock of Christ's snoop (beads) expocted
tbem to swallow It without chewing.
No ono will affirm that Buddhiim gives
to its boltevers no satisfaction at the death
bod, or that tho bollovort In Mobamidan
ismor l'aganlim uttor dotpsiring exclaira
tiont whon tho dying hour drawt near. If
death-bod conversions prnvVi anything and
figures aro resorted to, to ascertain which
cin show tho greatest number of tuch con
vnrslons, tho odds will bo found to be
greatly on tbo tido of tho heathens, for
tneir religion numoort inroe times at
many followers as tha Christians.
But tho conversion of a penon whose
body and mind is proktratod by sickness
who can noithor reason for bimtolf, nor
underttand what otbors try to explain to
him, provos nothing, for In porfect health
a man will tay ono thing; when ttrotchod
upon a tick bed, another.
I do not dony this ttatoment of Mr,
Thayer upon my own Authority. The
Kev. Theodore Clapp, of New Orloant
ays: -in an my exporloncos, 1 never
taw an unbollover die in foar. I have
soon thorn expire, of course, without any
hopes or expectations, but never in agita
tlon from dread or misgivings as to what
might bofall them horeaftor. It Is proba
ble that I have seen a greater amount of
thoio callod Irreligious persons breathe
their last than any othor clergyman in
mo unnei states. When I first

Are, unless thoro la an Intermediate placo

call It licensing sin rathor than punishing

Mr. Thayer oa thli point? In tho tlxth
chapter of St. Poul to tho Hobrowt from
4luto8th vono wo read:
"For It is impostiblt foi tboso who woro
