Wi apprehend that our correspondent,
"Questioner," is mistaken as to the creed of
Colonel Bob Ingersoll. The great "Infidel" is,
we think, rather an agnostic than an atheist.
He don't think he knows that there is a fu
ture conscious state and don't care whether
he knows it or not. The Colonel will pro
bably take occasion to answer Questioner's
conundrum at Galveston, where he is about
to deliver an address.
San Antonio should patent its mosquito

THRKEismuch tribulation among citizens
of the Methodist persussion at Allentown,
Fennsylvania, on account of having discovered
among them a dancing Methodist named
Lowe, and he is no less a person than an elder
in the church. Brother Lowe was arraigned
upon the complaint of a class leader, and be
ing sharply interrogated, confessed that he
had been enticed into the circus to see Jumbo,
and had unknowingly broken into a play
house and seen the "White Fairy," and had
participated in something like "Head couples
forward I'' The shock and shrieks as the
examination thus culminated seem to have
been something fearful. Jirother Lowe, how
ever, escaped with his life, and finding him
self indignant immediately resigned. But
whether he resigned the Methodist persuasion
or his place in the Methodist church only 'we
we not aware.
UENKKAL OKANT AS A LITKKATKUK,
The name of General Grant is canvassed
by some Interested partisans as again a presl
dential candidate, areuine that the interval of
two terms destroys the Impingement of trade
tional custom. We do not believe these are
friends of General Grant, but rather men who
have axes with the proverbial hacked edge
What we regret, as to General Grant, is that
his name was ever used for a third term, that
he did not retire on his return from his four
years' tour of the world and concentrate his
abilities upon a memoir of the great journey,
and thenceforward devote himself to literary
pursuits. We see the General's pame as a
contributor to the literature. of his, country is
received with marked respect and delerence
by the. literati. And we hope he will yet cul
minate as a literary star. Frederick the
Great was an author.
As 1o his public life, no chieftain ever re
ceived the universal homage of the world in
so demonstrative a manner as General Grant,
and Washington himself is not more honored
in the hearts of the American people This
is enough. An hundred presidential terms
woutd add nothing to it. We regret his per
sonal activity in politics, and therefore
rejoice that it is deviating into Beller
Lettres. All great Presidents, like him,
have retired to some hermitage, sr secluded
a retreat, excepting only John Qdincy Adams,
who perhaps was not a great president like
him. Wc would rather General Grant wou Id
folio in the footsteps of his illustrious pre
decessors than do any act to impair the tradi
ttons of the Government. Both Jefferson and
Washington the former pressed by two-
thirds of the State Legislatures declined a
third election. And the force of their reason
ing would not be obviated by an interval pre
cedent to the third term. We trust thtt Gen
eral Grant will rather continue as a contribu
tor to tho North American Review, and the
Washington Daily Chronicle, which we re
gard as a means of starting his pin feathers,
so that when fledged his literary star, as his
military at. Appomattox, will take its place as
the brightest in the American constellation.
A CONUNDRUM l'OK COL,. 1NUUKSOI.L.
How is It, Colonel, that a man so smart
or Intelligent as you doubt the perpetuity or
immortality of the mind I When you wash
your face in the morning (which, although a
Christian habit, you probably do), you are
made sensible that water carelessly used, even
in that process, will produce strangulation,
and that 30 seconds of strangulation would
put an end to you, provided this life is only
breath and s all the life you have, and your
phrnominal body the only body.
How is it you believe that the Author of
the universes, with which astronomers have
made us acquainted, amid which our solar
system is but a speck, or as a drop of water
in the ocean, has, as the ultimate or finality of
his works, a being so easily strangled, one
whose existence can be put an end to forever
by a pint of water ? You don't believe it,
Colonel, you But do not feel insulted,
which you have no right to do, because you
insult the world by such pretences.
