Bishop Keener remarks, that ha was

thinks. Kuppoj ."nn S'ing Eden down
aomh aa laraa Charleston, embraelnff
the cnaat between llt San tee and Ha-
vaiuiHh, with Ita neve ml rivers and In
leta, between the thirtieth and fortieth
parallels of latitude," there Is this at
least to say :
It Is to be supposed that Noah lived
not very far from the original home of
man. The ark was evidently designed
for speed and a long voyage. Had It
been made only to start from a given
point and Host about fcrlfiO duvs and
then ground At no great distance from
the point of departure It would have
been shaped heavy and square. The
timbers lor such tt vessel were neces-
saiily of continuous length and great
strength. Its knees and ribs would
require such wood as the live oak,
grown near the sea. Large quantities
of pitch and tar would lie required to
make it water-tight. The word "go
pher" means 'pitch" "pine." Bishop
Keener holds that It Is possible that
the gopher wood was the wood of the
1 ong-lenf pine, which either of the Car
olina could have funnelled In abun
dance. The brraking up of the. deep at the
tune ol the di-lugo would not Imply
uecei-sanly any very great change In
the conformation of the continents nor
in the sua currents. When, then, the
ark was lilted up and "went upou the
lace of the waters," it started due east
if it started irom Charleston. lilshop
It would presently strike the gulf
stream. Floating ou that sea current
it would take a uorluerly direction un
til it reached the lorlietU parallel, and
then would go duo cost, aud, as many
helplebs craft since, would come
withiu sight of spuiu and Africa, Hut,
those coasts being submerged, there
would be nothing todellect the current
but 11 would puss over the plateaus of
spuin luto the Mediterranean, across
the lower put of Uicece, then across
the plains ut Asia Minor, aud, still hol
ding the sumo pnalieL strike Mount
Ararat, 'iue ais uce iro.ni Charleston

ntteaui has a vuiucily ol two miles an
hour. 'Hub would leave very little to,
be overcome, it anything, when we al
low lor the uuiutuirupteU lljw which
Uiu current then hdd."
It is uul likely , limhop Keener think
mat annuals wutild be lauded lu any
oti.ei than Ihe latitude to which they
nero uccu.tumcu, aua they would de-
teuuiub me uuectiuu ot the ark's
couiutj. I lie puth ay of the ark, un

anxious to know what progress was
being made in the construction of the
line between here and Atchison, was
referred to Mr. Wlnslow Judson.ns one
who would be likeiy to give him the
desired Information. That gentleman
was found at hla olllce and was Induc

but future plans that had been deter
mined upon In regard to railway nut
