Rev. Dr. J. C. Mitchell, the able minis
ter of trie Presbyterian Church in Columbia,
went to Gallatin last week, to help In a re
vival over thorn. There was no service In
liis cmrcn Sunday morning, but at night
the Kev. S. W. Mitchell, of 7.ion, preached
an excellent sermon, In which he showed
the ui cesslty and efficacy of prayer. He be
lieved prayer to be essential to religion. To
prove prayer unnecessary and Inefficacious,
would lie to destroy a vital principle of our
holy religion. Mr, Mitchell Is an excellent
pre ca. r, always saying something to
strengthen I lie faith of Christians and bring
other io hrlst.
Rev. Dr. bright, pastor of the M. E.
Church, announced last Sunday that the

ding qu .nerly meeting as " Fast Day," and
J:e huped tue chnrcn would ro observe to
iUr. no preached a very acceptable ser-
mnu In the morning on the "divinity of
Christ." He said lliat in the middle ages
war was generally made around the person
of some d isiinxuiflind warrior or leader. Iu
fldullty ha been attacking Christiai lty in
all ages and iu all forms. At present the
altsck Is concentrated on the Saviour
against his divinity. Mention was made
I Prof. See lye's bttok, " Ecce Homo," which
reeoguizisi Const only asa man. This Itook
bad a remarkable sale, and was translated
iulo hcvi ral laiikU .gcs,thus showing the in
terest fie world fell iu lb discussion of tbe
divinity oi the Saviorot mankind, Seventy-odd
other books had been written on the
KxiueNut.iect. ijr. Wright then iuoted from
Tadtu-, P iny and oti er profaue writers,
who mention the brist, remarking at the
same lime that many people seemed to be
beuer sti-lied with tbe testimouy of pro
taue historians than with the sacred bfsto
rv. 1".. er'a answer to Jesus' question as to
who He us, '-Thou art the Christ, the son
of the living God," was the rock on which
it was b iili, and ne.ther iufi .elity nor the
"gut so hell" shall prevail against it. Dr.
W right brought out this, the main point ol
his -ermon, iu bold relief, and his clOKlng
remarks w. re very eloquent and thrilling.

Rev. Afr. Hensley, pastor of Douglas Cir
cuit, was expected to preach at the Metho
dist Church on- last Sabbath. Mr. Doyle was
no comment until eleven o cioca. oeiore ne
began the services, but from some cause he
laned to pnt in his appearance. He was
probably prevented from attending by fam
lly affliction, as we learn with regret tbat
the condition of Mrs. Hensley la but little,
if any, Improved. After waiting and anx
iously looking for the preacher, Mr. Doyle
opened the services, and delivered a most
excellent sermon. Mis. Laura Brown and
Miss Lulle Crump alternated at the organ,
and rendered in fine style the music for the
occasion. Mr, Gray, who never falls, preach

which he Is proverbial. At night Mr. King

The sermon was very good, but lost much
of its effect by bis confining himself too
closely to bis manuscript. This, of course,
will be remedied hv time and experience.
By an arrangement with the church be will

and promises to visit and preach for as at
some future time.

us too heroio, we will notice a few ideas ad
vanced in his reply last week. We assure
him that he is decidedly mistaken, when he
Imagines that it requires heroism to .bring
up the right side ot tbe"punlshment".ques
tlon. We have never mode any pretentions
to heroism in any of its forms, we antici
pate no danger in offering a thought on the
subject, as Lasea maeie a call to the world.
Hence, heroism was the least cf. our
thoughts. While we might easily become
an article of ccjwt, and perhaps may be
now, we presume none are desirous of tnt
pnrtiitg us into their midst to perform any
labor. We would suggest to oar friend that
the only information we have had from
Lasea, for a long while, has come through
the medium of his own pet. Besides, we
are satisfied there are many at I.tW who
are well qualified to "teach him the way of
the Lord more perfectly" ou this subject,
without importing a "preacher" from Dog
Creek or any other creek. I dont suppose
they thought the "hell ot the fathers was
lu much danger of t eing blotted out. I am
sure there were no fears entertained on our
part. We simply wished to greet him with
the desired information (nwl that we did
so. As he gave any one, who mtght see
proper to. do so, two weeks to And a passage
in the Bible teaching that tbe punishment
of tne wicked will be eternal, we thought
there would be nothing wrong In citli.ur Sim
to a lew passages. We did so with the Kind
est feelings, for tbe purpose of finding the
trne teaching ou tbe subject. Oar friend is
rather defiant in his assertions takes his
positions "without the fear of successful
contradiction." We have summed the cour
age to dispute some of his teaching ou this
subject wltb what success Will be for others
to decide. "Laea" soj s ccerlastiwj does m -t
mean eternal, but simply conveys the idea
of a certain period of time. It was onr for
tune to read an anecdote iu regard to a
Dutchman who had been listening to a
preacher give the true definition of "into,"
which was, "Close to nearly." The foreign
er thanked the preacher for tbe informa
tion toid him bis deflnitlom .removed
many rough things. The case of the He
brew children being cast into the furnace of
fire was all clear they were Just close to it.
1 ho idea 1 hat the wicked were to be cast In
to hell wus a horrid thought. Now all was
plain they just get close enough lo be com
fortable auu warm. But there was one
question the Dutchman desired the preach
er to auswer: "How about jjfctug into
Heaven?" Just answer, Air. Preacher, and
all will be well. Oue can easily imagine
tbe predicament of the preacher Just at this
polu . Since everlasting does not mean
eternal, or existing always, when referring
to the punishment of the wicked, it de
volves upon our Lasea friend to tell us what
it means in such expressions as these : "Ev
erlasting life." '"everlasting gospel' "ever
lasting God," "everlasting Saviour, "ever
lasting salvation," etc, Onr homf t convic
tions are tbe Great Author of tliiiiblc has
not butchered things thus, bvf 'ninto
ranit void w4th sucoR oi?psSu"iea,ngs
If the word does not meail eteriMl, when
used to describe the state ofiae wf cked,how
can it mean eternal when describing tbe
state ol the righteous? In regulVTo ' tbe
passages quoted Irom the old Bible to prove
bis definition of the word everlasting, I
would call attention to the fact, that God's
promises to tbe Jews were as everlasting as
tne covenant to which they belonged. His
promises to the people and dealings with
tbem in the Jewish age belonged to the old
covenant extended through toe time the
covenant embraced. No Buch idavas eter
nal happiness nor eternal punishment, eter
nal life nor eternal death, was contempla
te I. But a new and everlasting covenant
ias been established upon better, promises.
Ihts is the last will and testament of Gd,
our Father, and will stand to all eternity.
All the promises of God all the dealings of
God that belong to the covenant are as last
lug as the covenant itself, whien-is as eter
nal as the "Rock of Ages. We therefore in
sist that the passago, "And these shall go
away into everlasting punishment, but the
righteous lnt 11. e eternal," Mai. 26, 46, rep
resents the state of the wicked and of the
righteous to be tbe same in duration. If we
mistake not, several translators tender the
word eternal in the above passage in both
instances. We are sure the words everlast
ing aud eternal in tbe passage are both from
the same word, and necessarily cover the
same spce. We are willing fo submit it to
any scholar iu the land. It seems to ns to
be rather a nice distinction to discover a

This is circular logic. Condemnation in
civil law may have more to do witu tbe na
ture and attributes of the court, but what
does it mean iu Mark 3, 2!). "Shall be in dan
ger of eternal damuation ?" Both words are
nouns, and onr standard lexicographers
give punishment to their meaulng. our
mend will please tell us if man has a soul
tbat never dies? We have such expressions
as these, "All tbat are iu the graves shall
hear his voice, and shall come forth; they
that have done good, to the resurrection of
life; and they that b a ve done evil to tbe
resurrection of damnation," John o, 2S, 29.
"There shall be a resurrection of the dead,
both of tho Just and unjust," Acts 21, lo.
Why carry tbe wicked through all this or
deal, if it were no necessary iu order to ful
fill the promise of this crerlai'iig covenant
by punishing them eternally? They are
certaiuiy brought up to be Judged, for the
Saviour said, " He that believetb not is con
demned already," John It, 18. "If any man
hear and believe not, I Judge him not,"
John 12, 47. Our friend must either think

Mr. 8. M. Aruell appeared Thursday in the
County Court, at tiie request ot the friends
of nubile education, and advocated, giv ing
the common schoo's of the county an in
creased appropriation. He stated that llier"
were 11,710 school children in 111 county of
Maury, as shown by the report of the school
Superintendent; that there were 117 free
schools; that the average cost pur scholar,
each month, was seventy-five- cent. In
contrast with this lliesame report showrd
that there were private schools, and l.hli
pupils, aud the averag" cost per scholar,
per mouth, was 5I.9X 'J hese fl euros ra luted
out conclusively both, the i)pul srlty ol the
public school system aad its cheapness.
The people want more public schools, and
they are able to support good ones. The
census shows this, 'lo make good public
ccliools was to bring iu money, and to save
money to the county, free schools area
part of our civilization, and Maury county
cannot afford to go hicgward lu tills great
matter. Every growing community fester

be said, look Into Ihe lace of your own
child or grand child, ami know that the
best thing you can do for biin as a man, and
a christian, an I a magistrate, is to give him
the ad vantages of an rilttcMitm at home. The
cry of 12,0110 school children of this county Is
a cry lor breail as well as :or liyht. Educa
tion means two things. Flrt, to make the
