the ' late niiileasantue-s," when people
wee afraid to leave their homes or be seen
on tbe public highways. Were It not for
the anxious candidate who will overtake
you, or the lonely cow-driver whom you
will probably overtake, our neighborhood
would have the appearance of being really
of being deserted; but omnipresent office
seekers, and the ubiquitous bovine hunter,
in their pereginations, tend to baLish, in a
meausure, the dreary solitude that, other
wise, would reign almost supreme.

The cause producing these effects is readily

that they have no time to be circulating

The farmer carries the world. When he

Our friend "Hero" bas been kind enough
to send us auothr-r greeting, which wo will
briortv notice. We had hoped to sen a close
argument ibis time, as It seemed from his
own language that he was occupied throe
weeks iu making it. In commencing his
piec he speaks of oar communication "last
week." Ho is certainly very- much confused,
as Is clearly manifested lu his lsst piece.
But. for all this, he is excusable, as be occu
pies the wrong side ot tbe question, and
nothing but confusion is promised to those
who thus array themselves against the
plain teaching of the Bible. We yet believe
that It. takes heroism, and impudence, too,
to bring up the wrong side of anything. As
regards our goou irienos aoon uama lencn
lng us "the way of the Lord more perfectly"
ou this subject, we have only to say, that the
mntorltv of them are like our friend '-Hero"
woold rather subscribe to, and teach "the
traditions of the fathers" on this subject,
than to trouble themselves to learn that
way, much leas loach it to others. He says
that be cited us to passages that teach eter
nal punishment. If he did, we frankly con
fees that we failed to see them, and are will
lug for your readers to decide that point.
Again he says: "Lasea says everlasting does
not mean eternal, but simply conveys tbe
Idea of acet taln period of time." We never
used auy such language. He also relates an
anecdote about a Dutchman, which bos
about as much bearing upon tue subject un
der consideration, as tbe first verse of the
nrst cnapter oi tne nrst oook oi v-nronicies,
which reads thus: "Adam, Soth, Enos." We
think a man is nearly " driven to the wall"
when he resorts to the uso of anecdotes to
establish his propositions, most especially
U he be a preacher, and the subject a scrlp
tualy one. Since we did show that in many
plain passnges, "Everlasting, forever, and
such like times," fall far short of an eternal
signification, it devolves upon those who
study ihe subject under consideration to re
ly alone for positive proof upon those terms
that have a certain and unvarying termi
nation. Our friend, in making his argu
ment concerning the term "everlasting,"
says taht God's promises to the Jews were as
everlasting as the covenant to which they
belonged. We say agreed, for we produced
a passage relative to that covenant lu which
the term evei lasting was used. So our
friend, after making his argument, virtual
ly concedes the fact that we were right. It
is very strange to us, that a man of sense
woulu riuioble over our definition of dam
nation, and In the very next breath, quote
John 3, lii, which reads: "He that belle veth
not is condemned already." Now. my dear
sir, if you are as well posted in the out Bi
ble as a Drencher ointbt to be. you most as
suredly know that the ancient worthies had
very lair ideas of a life beyond me grave.
"Eternal deaih" is no where taught within
the lids of tbo Bible. Hero says, "if there
aro grade s of punishment taught, wc con
fess we bave utterly failed to find It," Now,
my friend, if you believe that the above
ii atement Is true, why did yon make uso of
me iouowing language Deioro you ciosea
j'our piece? 'The subjects of each wll be
rewarded according to their deeds." What
inconsistency, to thus atiirin contradictory
terms in 8 1 most the same bi t alb ! We now
call Attention to several facts:
1. God shut out man from tiio tree of life
that bo should not live forever.
2. He gives an immortal existence to the
righteous only, anil that at the lost trumpet.
;'i. The puni.-hment of the wicked will be
whrn God burns our earth. This ureat con
flagration will constitute the lake of fire.
1. This lire will sometime coase lo burn,
and there will be a new earth created out of
the ashes ot the old earth.
fi. God will have a clean universe, and
none but holy beings will then remain
oue great f-ict Is settled by the examina
tion of tbe Biblesoncernlng mau's stat in
death. Men are not rewarded or punished
until the judgment has first taken place.
We cite a passage relative to the wicked,
because of l is emphatic statement of this
doctrine: "The Lord knoweth how to de
liver the godly out of temptations, and to
reserve the unjust uutj Ihe day of judgment
to ba punished." 2d Peter, 2: 9. us now
consider the foregoing proposition, relative
to tiie punishment of the wicked.
1. Is it true that God excluded man from
the tree of life, less he should, iu his sinlul
slate, live forever ? These are the words of
the Bible, "And tl'eLord God said Behold,
tile man is become as one or us to know
good aud evil, and now lest he put forth his
band, and take also of tbe tree of life, and
eat and live forever; therofore the Iiord God
sent him forth from tiie garden ol" Kdcn to
till tbe ground from whence he wastaken."
Gen. 3: ia!, 2-t. No oue will deny that the
words, "LI ve forever," are to be taken in
tbeir natural aud obvious sense. God's pur
pose distinctly revealed in them. Man, as a
sinner, is not to live forever. This great fact
is thus announced at the very beginning of
the Bible, aud we may bo sure that subse
quent, testimonies do not contradict it.
2. Is it also true tbat immortality does not
t-eloug to manly nature, and is tbe gilt of
God to the ri hteous only, and tbat not till
tbe last trumpet? So the script ires plainly
touch. Thus Paul says, ' Who will render to
every roan according to his deeds; to them.
Who by patient continuance in well doing,
seek for glory aud honor aud immortality;
but unto them tiiat are contentions, and do
uot obey the trulti, but obey unrighteous
ness, ludignatlou and writh, tribulation
and anguish, upou every s jii! of man that
doeth evil." Koin. 2: t), ;i. Immoriality is
therefore tne girt of find lo those r.nly wbo
seek it by patient contrivance iu well doiug.
It Is therefore certain that man does not,
possess Immortality by nature. Paul also
fixes t. e time whenGod snail ive immor
iality to his pple. "Behold, I show you a
mystery. We shall not ail sleep, but we
shall all be cbauged in a niniiicut, in tbe
twinkling ol au eye, at the last trumpet: for
the trumpet shall soond, and the dead shall
lie raised incorruptirle, and we shall be
cbauged. Fir tins corruptible inut putan
incoiruptlou, aQd this mortal shall put an
immortality,'' Ist Cor. 1.1 : ol, 53. This is
the lime, and this the manner, in which tho
riguteons snail be made Immortal.
1 it also tlje fact that the burning earth
is to constitute tbe tske of (ire wheielu tbe
wickedball be punished ? Solomon thus
statesthople.ee of puuishmeut : "Behold,
tbe righteous shall be recompensed in the
earth: much more ttio wnVked and the sin
ner." 1'rov. 11, :;t. The righteous shall bo
recompensed iu the ii;? earth, and our
cartb, Willi: i now is, sha.l be dissolved Willi
lerveiit heat when the time coinos to mtiKe
it new. This is the time and place for the
perdition of ungodly men, "But the heav
ens aud ine earth, which are now by the
same word, are kept in store, reserved nnto
tire aaniuet the day of judgment and perdi
tion of uunodly men," 2.1 Peter, Hi chapter
aud 7tu verse. "But the day of the Ixird
will come as a thiol in the night, in wblcli
tlin heavens shall pass away with a great
noise, aud the elements shall meit with fer
vent heat, the earth also, and the works
that are thereiu shall be burned no," Verse
10. Our earth will not be burned' till the
day of judgment. The wicked are not to be
punisned till that day, 2d Peter, 2: . But
when God meits tho eartii, then sba'l come
tbe perdition of ungodly men. Maiaebl
states this great fact in these "ords: "For,
behold, the day cotneth, that shall barn as
an oven, and all the prond yea, and all
tbat do wicked 1", shall be stubble; and tbe
day that ometh shall barn tb-ria up, saith
tbe Lord of hosts, that It shall leave them
neithor root nor branch. "
:: Aud j'et (the righteous, shall tread down
the wicked, tor they shall be ashes under
the soles of your feet In the day that I shall
do this, sa.lu the Lord of hosts." Mai. 1: 1, 3.
Here is Peter's burning day, aud here is also
tbe perdition of all the ungodly iu the lake
oi tiro. John speaks emphatically concern
ing the Jake ol firs, and plainly teaches that
tbo place where the wicked shiill be punish
ed is our earth. "For after the resurrection
of the unjust, they come np on tho breadth
of tbe earth, aud encompass the camp of
the saints about; then fire from God out of
heaven comes down and devours them."
Kev.2ir.fl. v e have fully proved that our
earth Is .o be tbe place of the fire wherein
tbe wicked shall be punished.
4. Is it true that this lake. of fire, after con
suming tbe wicked, and after melting the
earth, shail cease to burn, and that there
shall be a new earth that shall spring from
the ashes of tbe old, wherein the riguteous
shall dwell? Maiachi plainly teaches that
the fire shail case to burn after devouring
t he wicked, and that the very placo whore
the wicked were burned shall become the
abode of t he saints; for he speaks of what
shall follow the burning day: "And ye
shall tread down the wicked, for they shall
be ashes under the soles of your feet in the
day 1 shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts."
Mai. t: 3. Peter a fTJrms this when he iays,
"L oking for and basting unto the coming
of the day oIGoi, wherein the heavens be
ing on tire shall be dissolved, and the ele
ments shall melt wllh fervent heat; never
theless, we, according to his promise, look
for new heavens aud a new eurtli, wherein
dwellel'.i the righieous." 2J I'etor, 2: 12,
Vi. Sj that ihe hre shalj sometjnie ceas? tt.
buru. auu'God shall create from the ashes of
tiiool'l earth a new earth to b9 l'e abodeof
his people through ceaseless years of eter
nity. And Oils is also Solomon's doctrine,
when tie says: "Tue righteous shall be re
compensed In tne earth, much more the
wicked and the sinners," Pro v. 11: ol. John
represents the creation of the new earth as
no event that succeeds the lake of fire, Kev.
2m I f. 15; 21: 1. It Is therefore certaiu that
tiie lire in which tbo wicked are lo b? pun
ished shall not hv.in to all eternity. '"
j Aud is it certain tbat God shall again
have a clean universe, and 'none but holy
leiogs remaiii alive? He most assuredly
had such ouce, for evil had no existence un
til Satan originated it. The Psalmist prays:
"Let the wicked bo consumed out of t!io
earth, and let tbe wlckeif be no more," P-s.
M: ii. I uii prayer will cwrtaiuly be an
swered, as tho above texts plainly teach.
When Balaam predicts the adveutof Christ,
and the destruction of th 3 wicked, be cries
out, "A las, who shall live when God doeth
this?"' Num. 21: 17, 21. And Johu tells us
that "whosoever was not found writlen in
t ho book of life, was cast into the lake of
fire," and "this U the second death," Ktv.
ii'j; 1 1, lo. He aiso seta forth the time wheu
none but holy beiugs exist in the nnlverse
of God. Tims he stys, "And every creature
Which is lu heaven, and ou the earth, aud
uuder the earth, and such, as are in the sea,
en ! all that are la them, heard I saying,
'Blesslug. anq bot;or, aud g,ory, and power.
bo uutu him Hilt sit teta upon the throne,
and unto tbe Limb forever an I ever.' "Rev.
.': . Wheu these words shall hare their
fulfillment, tbe lake of tire will have done
its work upon the wicked, aud noue but ho
ly beiugs leaiaUi alive. God Is then all lu
all. Tuts time wBl most assuredly come,
for God bas spoken It. We deem it prudent
t close at this point for the present, and de
