- tingly to this era as the on' id which will be

the highestauthorities-however much they have

oialy by a few years.. We have 1866, o7, "'i,
77 and '2,giveii to us b.y var ops wriers a,3 the
Lhit of the world's existec but whatexe: is
the period named, the concurrent'evidence is
strong-4vl starHino. . The unsett1d condition of
the ci#ilized ':orld,the premonizory throbbingof
revolution among old systems of Gtvernment,
the complf.cations growing out of anr own strulg
gle, which threatten to involve other ngation s, the
. dissolution of social bonr's, the loosening of re
straints, and breaiki.ig down of the barriers which
confine men wlth:in a civiiir.ed pale, are all cir:
'cumstances now in eourse of occurrence which
are quoted as evider.*ee of the fina hour. A still
more remarkable rela;ioni between thp prophey
and the present hour is estabis~hed by a portion
-of the ninth chapter of Daniel,:in which we fiid
.the following description of our enemies adu
-theis 'eaders.
".And in 'the latter time of their kingdon, when
the tra'nsgressor.< are-comne to tbe full, a king of
* fiMerce countenance, anid underst.anding dark sen
~tences, shall stand izp. And his power shall be
mighty, but niot~ hy his owvn power ; and he shall
destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper,and prge
*tice, and shall destroy .the mirh:y and thbe holy
- pople. And thirough his policy lie .sha I cause
craft to prosper in his hand ; and<he shall mag
nify himself in his heart, and by peace shalI de
stroy many ; and he shalg also-stand up against
* the Prince of.princes, but he shall be broken
without hand. The'judgment shall sit, and thoy
shall take away his dominion to densme arnd de
stroy it unto the end."
Ye have adverted briefly to. this theme be
cause it is one- on wich, notwithstanding .th;e
wreck of matter that' is being made,.around us,
the thoughts of thoughtful meu are d welling, and
because too, it n a'y awaken curiosity among
-those who are fond of ancient lore, to read es
.pecially with this subject in view. A topic how
* ever, so fruiitful in interer t to man, woman .and
ehild, may weil excite someting imore than-mere
