A Blow Shuck at oua Clieot.
The Herald, of last week, strikes
the following blow at our clergy :
"Fourteen Temperance Societies, on
the Washingtonian plan, have been or-
ranized in Noble. The number of
members, five hundred. The work has
been done by a young Presbyterian
minister less than twenty-two years of
age. How much more commendable
and how much more acceptable to his
Master is the work of this young de
votee, than that ministerial slang
whanging whioh arrays neighbor a
gainst neighbor I Just what is needed
here ia such a noble, disinterested,
tealous man as Rev. Butter. With all
reverence : "O Lord, give this com
munity a Butter in the person of some
of our own beloved ministers."
Here in McCoinelsville, we have
clergymen that "have taken the
most advanced position on the
Temperance question. In fact, as a
body, they have avowed themselves
to be Prohibitionist, and, conse
quently, have time and again, en
deavored to impress upon all pro
fessing Christians the importance
of a decided stand against the Li
quor Traffic. In doing so, tbey
have not been choice in their lan-
rusee in denouncing the Traffic
and the inconsistency of those
church members that encourage it
by their "daily walk and conversa
tion." This course has aroused the
ire of the Liquor Vendors, and tboir
friends, and, as a result, these irate
individuals, who think it all right
to deal out slow poison to a com
munity, stigmatize the clergy as
"arraying neighbor against neigh
bor." .to., and it seems that the
Herald, in its hot haste to cater to
the whisky elements, has caught np
the cry and is makiug it familiar in
While Rev. Rutter is doing a
(rood and commendable work in No
ble county, and while we are glad
to hear it and hope he will contin
ue it, yet we doubt very much whe
ther he has done half as much with
in the past year as either of several
ol our clergymen have to further
the cause of Temperance, lftbe
clergy of Ohio, as a body, would
but take the poaition that four or
five of our clergymen have taken
on the Liquor Traffic, it would not
be long before the drunkard mak
ing business would cease in the
State, and intemperance become
one ot the things of the past.
The reason for the Herald cot be
ing able to see any virtue in the
efforts of our clergymen relative to
Temperance matters is apparent to
all. Our clergyman believe in legal
suasion as well as moral suasion,
and tkey believe that the legal busk
ion hor!d- be apphei to the foun
tain from which the evil flows.
This does not soil the Herald be
cause it is the organ of the party
that holds the manufacture and
sale of alcoholio spirit as a bever
age to be one of tbo indispensible
resources of the country. But, we
are of the opinion that our clergy
can stand it to be called "slane-
wbangera" by the Herald if the
Herald can stand it to do so.

of MeConnelsville. Had we space,
we would publish the account in
fall for the benefit of the many
friends in this locality of the fair
bride, but our typo warns us that
our paper is about fall, and we are
forced, thereby, to deny ourselves
the pleasure. The bride is describ
ed aa having been more charming
even than it has been her wont to
appearand wm robed in the fol
lowing described elegant costume :
"The bride's dress was of corded

surmounted with a heaving rouche
of silk, feathered at the edges, giv

corsage, handsomely trimmed with

sleeves, with malire frills, were

ed in the arrangement."

Reason, or Shall Bigotry
Shape and Rule the Destinies
Shape and Rule the Destinies of Mankind?
Editor Coxsfrvativi : There is an
article in the Conservative of the 21th
nit. from John F. Moody, which, al
though in the main devoid of point,
argument or logio, yet contains some
statements which I wish briefly to con
sider, as the spirit they breath and the
assumptions they make, are alike de
moralizing and absurd, lie commen
ces by saving!
"It is not necessary for the Christian
Religion to be aspersed by the foal
mouth of Spiritulism and Infidelity,"
Now why this nrgentletsanly and
untruthful epithet, 'foul mouthed" ?
and why applied? ' Simply because
Spiritualists and Infidels chance to be
lieve, and have the honesty to express
opinions differing from those of Chris
tians. (Of course I allude to the whole
family, not recognizing the right of one
small sect to monopolise the generic
name.) And how this style of argument
smacks of that used by a l alvin, and
Puritanical bigots, when the gibbet,
faggots and the rack were deemed ap
propriate arguments for the conversion
of refractory "Infidels." When will
clergymen learn to recognise the fact
that defamation and scurrility are not
arguments which appeal to the rea
sorting and reflecting faculties ol man
kind I Again be says:
"But here, I think, the Doctor cries,
Reason! Where? Who has it? How
much more has he than the philoso
phers of yore? -and it has never taught
our race anything but idolatry, the
history of which is foul licentiousness."
What a commentary is this in this
age of culture and scientific attain
ments, upon that faculty of the mind
which preeminently distinguishes man
Irom the brute? How appropriately
may we exelaim, "a blind leader, of the
blind" ! and again, in poetic phrase,
Knowledge to their eves her ample page,
Rich with spoils of time, did ne'er unfold;
Chill penury (bigotry) repelled their noble
Choked the noble impnise of theirsouls."
And yet, this has always been a f&t
vorite dogma of Christianity, that rea
son is deception, and deplorable in its
results to mankind, and she must ne
ceasariaily ignore reason, as its free use
invariably results in infidelity, and
self-preservation is her only law. Yet,
from this faculty alone, has resulted
the discovery of America, the arts of
printing and weaving, the application
ot steam, the Jblectnc 1 elegraph, the
Sewing-machine, and all the arts and
refinements that distinguish the high
est civilization from the lowest condi
tion of the savage. Again he savs:
"You may draw a line br the Bible,
and for it I will place all the good and
pare our earth ever had.
J nis statement displays as much ig
norance and bigotry, or culpable dis
regard of veracity as was ever couched
in so many words. Does he not know
populous kingdoms and empires exis
ted thousands of years before Moses
was bcrn, and that some exist at the
present day, yet not one in a million
oi tneir countless multitudes ever
heard of the Bible ? Does he not know
that not more than one-twentieth of
all the people now inhabiting the earth
Know anything of the Bible? And.
yet, is he so silly as to affirar that there
is no goodness amongst this vast mul
titude, nor has not been throughout
thousands of ses ? Has he not, at
least, heard of those paragons of virtue
ana goodness, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob
and Joseph, who lived and died ages
before iloses was born ? These, cer
tainly, were not good by virtue of the
.Bible I cut to come down to our own
nation and time. An hundred years
or reading, interpretation and prayers
from tbe expounders of the Bible, onlv
seemed to confirm a large portion of
the Christians of the United States in
the belief that that "sum of all villain
ies," Slavery, was of Divine appoint
ment, ana they louna no lack of passa
ges to prove their doctrine and send
Onesimus back to bondage; and I think
I may safely claim that three-fourths
of the forty thousand clergymen of
this country, taught this doctrine at
the breaking out of the late rebellion.
Bur, when a Spiritualistic President
had declaired the bondman free, then
the Church, with its Bible, acquiesced
in the reform. Again, for nearly forty
years intemperance has been denoun
ced in this country, outside of the
Church, as a great evil, a sin, a erime;
and even prohibitory laws have exis
ted in: some of the States for years and
the reform has become quite popular
all over the country, and, yet, never, to
my knowledge, has any Christian sect,
as a body, takes any action in refer
ence to this crime until within the last
year, and, even now. tippling is not
considered a bsr te membership by
any sect that I am aware of; again pro
ving that reformatory movements are
far in advance of the' Church, and that
