guine of the ultimate practical vin
dication of his philosophical theory.
'J. N.,' alone of all others reasons
not from a standpoint of prejudice.
To him alone it is given to uufold
the truth in all her majestic and
pristine beauty. With him there
is no variableness or shadow of
turning. With him of all mundane
existing intelligences, the primor
dial essence of everlasting and
and perennial truth but we fore

to announce that this unterrified
champion will, at Athcncum Hall,
on December 13th proximo, lift the
veil of error and assume the pres
sure incident to a fearless advocacy
of tho sublima theory of which he
is tho author, and the only expo
nent capable of evolving its Cimc
rian mysteries. Those afraid of
the truth will Of Course stay away
while those seeking light will be
present to hear him. 'J. N.' re
quests us to make known his high
appreciation pf rho. people of Ath
ens, and to say that he desires a
large audience on tho 13th of next
month, so that ho can effectively
vindicate principles for which he
alone is responsible.

GALLIPOLIS, O., Dec. 15, 1873.
j. w. bowen:
Dear Sir. After seeing you on
Thursday last I went up abovo Cor
nelius Karnes', where Mr. Kirk
patrick and his forces were at work,
and, notwithstanding the same, I
found tho men working cheerfully
and profitably, and building for you
the cheapest railroad ever built in
tho State by great odds. Unless
the weather proves too unfavorable,
they will bo ready' to move their
teams down between McArtiiur and
tho M. fc C. Bond last of. this or
forepart of next week, and if your
subscribers promptly supply tho
moans to pay them, you will soon
have tho gap graded between your
town and the M. & C. Road. Every
thing look3 promising for the speedy
completion of tho road, if all do their
duty. We expect to have 75 to 100
additional men at work within ten
days, south of tho M. & C. Road,
and intend pushing the work along
with all the energy the circumstan
ces will justify. I reached home
last night and found letters here
from Cincinnati that speak very en
couragingly of a road from that city
to McArtiiur. I wish them great
success in tho undertaking, and the
same to another road seeking a
connection witli ours. If the people
along the line of our road will act
unitedly, and all contribute what
they can spare, wo will soon have
the best paying railroad, for its
length, in the State. Therccont
liberal action of tho Vinton Coal
and Iron Company, and its lessees
will go far towards insuring the
completion of our road. I will try
and be with you before this week is
out. Respectfully Yours,
W. H. LANGLEY.
