Me. Edito: Witnessing effects,
one atsks for the causes. To-day,
whi!e thinking, I fell into a quan
dary. Will somebody help me out?
The question came to my mind,
why are men so eager for religious
controversy?" Is it bocause the
think certain prevalent errors ruin
men temporarily and eternally T
My mind, for an instant, was satis
fied with this suggestion, but then
the enquiry came, is it so? Some
men think thns; hence all their love
of truth, all their benevolence and
sympathy bind to resist and, if
P'jsaible, destroy errors they deem
to be dangerous and damning.
2Are u cause enough for aspault.
Ifagood man learns that a fiend in

But suppose one does not believe
errors can be thus ruinous, what
can lufluenco him to write or alter
his philippic? Ii all crrors,at the
very worst, are but temporarily, if
at all, injurious, why are the brist

any way, why not let the passen

: Can it be that we dispute to vin
dicate the truth ? What's the use,
when practically itis of so little
importasce whether we hold truth
or falsehood ?
Can it be to exalt the mercy of
God? It looks some like this : If
it is mercy to take to Koaven pious,
sensible, truth-loving people, it is
equal mercy . to - take a . blinded,
wicked Presbyterian there. But,
says one, all are punished to the
full extent of their wrone-doincr.
hence we must rescue these wretch
es from error and sin, and thus save
them from punishment. , May-be

Beside, I am perplexed on anoth
er point hero. Would a Methodist
brother sin any the less if won
over? . He, ignorantly perhaps,
thinks salvation is only for obedient
believers. Should we convince
him that he will be saved any way,
would he live any better than now?
Baffled on every hand, my mind
asks, can it be men will- enter the

SALTSBURG, Feb. 13th, 1871.
Rrv. J. r. McLasb :
Dear Bro: I received yours of the
6th instant, and also the copy of the
Conservative. My knowledge of the
circumstance to which you allude, and
which was first published in the Pitts
burgh Christian Advocate, enables me
to say that there it tome truth in what
is published under the caption "Singu
lar Circumstance.'.' But in saying this
I desire you to know, a-i all who read
the article, that three-fourths at least,
of all that is there set forth as true, is a
fabi ication of lies. In the firet place it
is stated that the Universalis a com
pany of them) "met each evening in a
house near by for the purpose of dis
cussing their doctrines of belief," ic,
"and that the opposition became ve
ry violent on Sabbath evening." Now
this is untrue and can be proven by
those who are neither in sympathy
with Universalists nor Methodists.- It
is stated "the Pastor was ordered to
erase the names of some of their young
people from the Church records." This
may be true ; but they were not Uni
versalist parents.- It is stated that with
the exception of Miss Taylor and her
mother, all the rest of the family were
either members ot . the Universalist
Church or stro'igly in sympathy with
their doctrines. This is not truo.
The father is not in sympathy with U-
niversalists, and it is well known that
Miss Mary Taylor, the eldest daughter,
is s member of the H. E. Church, and
in full sympathy with that faith, and
was at the mourner's bench with her
sister Emaline at the same time. They
had united with the Church some two
or three years before this, but had
en from Grace. It is stated that she
"took no nourishment whatever for
seven days." It is known and acknowl
edged here that she took milk and su
gar mixed together, on Tuesday, and
her father believes it was continued.
On Tuesday M r. Henry Taylor, a
brother or the little girl, and who had
joined the Universalist Church some
three weeks before, was sent for, and
on entering the room where she was
lying he was enjoined by a Methodist
lady, a Miss Thompson, that "she was
giving the Universalis ts fits." Up to
this time Mr. H. Taylor, though atten
ding their meetings, had said but very
little. There were no other Unirers.
alists there at that time except a Mrs.
Kelly, who had said, after hearing the
sermon on the 2nd Sabbath evening,
"that it was enough to. put any person
eraiy that believed it." 4 --
Mr.' II. Taylor says (and, by the way,
he is one of those young men we can
believe), when he approached her she
had het eyes partly open.. . lie said to
her, "Emaline, do you know me ?"
To this she made no reply, but in about
ten minutes spoke in a low tone of
of voice and said, f'There is a helL"
Mr. Taylor asked her if she could s ee
into it. She answered, "No, the door
is shut." " She also said sh "saw large
letters on the door." He then asked
her if she Saw heaven- She said she
did, and that there were ten thousand
times ten thousand there. - She then
commenced naming those she knew.
After naming some five or six pcr3ons
that were deceased, .. including- her
two little sisters, all being relatives of
the family, Mr. Taylor asked her if she
saw a Mr. Kuhns, ' Henderson, Dean
and a Miss Ann Smith, there' ? She
said she did, dressed in white. ' She
spoke of these without any signs of sur
prise' or delight. She also spoke to her
brother of a Mr. Thomas, of whose
death she had heard before, but said
nothing of Mr. White.. She also re
quested her brother to chase Alexand
er Woods out of the room ; (this was a
colored boy that lived near Wbite's
station,) and being told ' there was no
such person in the room, she insisted
there was. The statement ia reference
to Mr. White being a Presbyterian
Minister is true. But he never was
Pastor of the Presbyterian Church of
SalUburg. and of course did not resign
his charge for another in Ohio. It is
stated that she was not acquainted
with the fact of his 'death. . This is un
true. She learned this in the family
of Mr. John McXalips before the meet
ing commenced. She requested her
father to come and get on the boat
quickly ki he would be lost, saying
that "the boat was running back and
forward from shore to shore, and it
was run by Christ himself 1"
The father denies having said "that
if it turned oul as she said (with refer
ence to her coming back) he would be

ning to learn tbe sequel ; but, they

chairs to steady herself.
In addition to the above, I would
state that there are several rumors a-
broad, one of which came to my ears
on Sunday, which was, that a Univers-
alist rose in one of their meetings to
oppose the Ministers and was strioken
down with a fit. This circumstance
has created in rich- excitement in this
community. But the last circumstance
j (namely, the untrcthfol 'statement
1 made in the article published,) is the
most remarkable, and is now creating
the most incitement. J. have met none
yet who has read the article and has
any knowledge of the circumstance but
i says it is false and slanderous. They
j even say themselves that it contains
whatis untrue, .They .are not willing
to giro the paper to outsiders to read.
The publishing of this article is an un
fortunate circumstance for the cause
of Methodism in this community.
. And now in conclusion, as we are
willing te stand over' the above state
ment, you may use this in the way
you think best. You will please send
this statement, or a copy of it, to the
office of the SUr, and let an article be
published in reply, and I will have it
copied in the different country papers.
You can do the same. Let me hear
from you as soon as convenient. '
ITev DmcovsaT. Recent explora
tions in the tropical wilds of Africa
have brought to light some products of
the vegetable kingdom, possessing re
markable and valuable medical prop
erties. The Calabar Bean, till lately
unknown to botanists, is about the siie

color, hard and polished surface. It is
used as an ordeal by the natives, and
in lieu of J udge and jury. The crimi
