Having understood thai Mr. R
intended to deliver a course of lectures on the
subject of future endless punishment, commenc
ing on sabbath last, at eleven o'clock, my cu
riosily prompted me to attend his .first, which
opened with a sharp fire at univcrsalism; but it
only proved a random shot, as wc, will endeav
or to show, and we commence with Mr R.'i
positive statement in regard to tho oriein of uni
versalism: He urged as oiic great objection to
the d.'ictrinc, that its -origin was too. modern. -
lie slated positively that this doctrine was iiev
er promulgated previous lo 17G8. . Here it bo
comes our duty to undeceive the minds of many
1 AAli hiircja Oh Ihit uCCio'luii, Iu IcfeiClluu to
tjW origin of uuivcrsalisiA. Do not understand.
Mr. Editor, that w e believe Mr'.. It. practiced a
wiliul deception on lus congregation, but wc
think it the result of not lieing well posted iu
the ages of orthodoxy and univcrsalism. By
"orthodoxy," , wemeau Calviiustic Congregation
alism, for this claims' to bo the orthodoxy of
New England. By "univcrsalism" we mean
the doctrine of the final reconciliation of all
things to God, Which of those two doctrines is
the oldest? as a matter of church history.
Ualvmism, w hich is Uic orthodoxy of congrega
tionidism, is older than Congregationalism itself,
John Calvin, himself, was not a congregational
ist that we know of. Ho was the father of that
system of doctrines in the church known us
Calvinism. Of course Calvinism is not older
than Calvin himself. Well, when was Calvin
ism born? When did John Calvin construct
that theology?- Answer not until after the
christian church had been in existence over fif
teen hundred ycrs. From the time of the A
postlcs, more thart fifteen centuries' had rolled
away before modern orthodoxy was born. This
was in tho year 153G- so that Culvhoi tself,
even ul the present day, is buta-'fiUle over 300
years olJ. And then thereat one fact in rela
tion to it, '.that is tvorthy cjf notice in passing
that in die very place w here it was born Calvin
ism lias long since been dead aud defunct. ' Cal
vin lived and died in Geneva, but there is no
Calvinism now in that theatre of his power aud
inuiupn. Congregationalism 5jp! in Eliirland
in about 1G16. It vvat many ' yearsiQvcyerJ
beiore it arrested much attention or respect. It
adopted tho Calviuistic faith, and henco became
orthodox. Orthodox Congregationalism, there
fore, is but about 229 years" old not a very
great age to boast of, one would think.'' At
least, it hardly becomes modern orthodox lo
taunt universalis or any other sect wilh not
having age enouli for their doctrines lo entitle
them to the claims of truth.
liut how old is.iniveisalisrii?--as a matter of
historical existence in tlie Christian church. Is
it younger, or older than Calvinism? Answer
univcrsalism was an undispulo-i doctrine in
tlie primitive Christian church for 't fie first three
hundred years loiigcr than orthodoxy has existed
since its birth to the present day. Traces of
ihis doctrine (uni versalism) are found in the
writings of the earliest Christian fathers. Clem-
ens Atexaudrinus believed it. He was personally
a pupil off. John the Evangelist; received his
doctrines front his lips and lived undtr the in
fluence of his teachings. He was a universalist.
The celebrated Origen, who flourished in about
the year 230, the most honored and disliiiLMiish-
ed of ull the early fathers, was a universalist,
and has left evidence of this in his writing's,
till extant. Titus, Bhdiop of Boston, who
flourished in 317, was a universalist. 'Gregory
was n universalist. " He lived in 370. St. Je
rome was i universalist'. He w rote in 3K0.
Johu, Bishop of Jerusalem, also believed iu uni
versal salvation. Indeed, this doctrine was un-'
questioned in Ihe ohun h, fr nevly five bun-
died years. At length, after. heathenism had
corrupted the church, and it began to lose its
pi nuiliAc character, aud dnicciul inlu llic dyfk
ages, then) but not till then, inore, partial t doct
rines began pj"evail, and llicsedid prevail, till
finally they-reckoned the strongest party. iu
lliuir fbTor, and, in the fifth , General Cuutic il,
which met in C53, univ6rsarism wtit for the
first time censured and condemned; Roman Cath
olicism thenceforth liadiU sway tillllio Reform
ation of 10OO, when it began to meet with a
chccl Orthodoxy' however, which came np
then, still clung to the Catholic doctrine of end
less misery, and has contended for it ever since
But in point of fact historical fact nniversa
lism was a favorite doctrine of the best h9 and
earliest fathers in the church, hundreds and
hundreds of years before orthodoxy had its birth.
Let not the orthodox again--becauso it is not
becoming in them to do so taunt tho universa
lis! s us if their doctrines were not old enough to
lie true. It is just as old as .Christianity to a
day. There were other arguments used to
provo utiivcrtalisin untrue, but nunc which 1
will notice this tune.

. Ma. Editor: Iu your jxiper of last week
"A Pupil" assails the "Lord's of creation"
without either justice or reason to sustain her
attack. She says w e men are "spiteful," whicli
may be the case ; yet are we ever ready to ac
knowledge" talent" w hen possessed by a lady ;
knor do we entertain the belief that ladies arc
incapable of writing upon any more intellectual
subject than "Idle gossip." ?Tlio very fact of
their making so stale and thread-bare a subject
interesting, 'a certain!)- indicative of talent,
which should insure them agaiust the charge of
The young lady says, she is " candidly of tho
opinion that if the reins of government had
been put in woman's hands, the world would
have been governed to soino purpose." Let
us take a glance at tlio practicability of such a
scheme; and then, if the ladies 'still contend for
such a change, we will quietly lay down our
amis, and grant to them despotic sway.
First, then, we will consider the ladies assem
lied in conclave solemn, debating upon the af
fairs of Ihv. nation. An net" to regulate mew's
apparel" it before the House, w hich has occa
sioned a long, contentious discussion. One
party contends that men should be compelled to
wear petticoats as a just revenge for having so
long condemned woman to the servitude of a
dozen unnecessary garments, while the more
merciful maintain, that a due regard lo Ihe cum
fort of our fellow-beings should induce Con
gress to permit the poor creatures' to retain the
breeches, aud slate, ns reasons, that petticoats

stairs, climbing fences, Stc. The debate goes
bravely on, but alas, is suddenly interrupted by
tho plaintive crys of a new born generation, and
the member who has the floor js forced to break
off in the midst of an irrefutable argument in
order to appease the appetite of her babe of
three months old. A mot ion to adjourn is made,
which, through the cries of infants, is ogrccd to.
Women might do in Congress, but what is to
be done with the babies? Congress, methinks,
would be making appropriations to supply it
members with paregoric, Jayue'a carminative,
sugar plums, &c.
Let us view the effect a general exchange of
duties will have in the domestic circle. Imagine
a hardy back-woodsman transmogtificd into a
housewife. Knitting in hand, he is rocking the
cradle and humming, in gene tones, some favo
rite air from " Mother Goose's Melodies." Hi
wife is absent ul a political meeting, and he,
poor soul, sorely vexed nt being left alone until
so Lite an hour of the night, g'anccs round the
room with a nervous look,, iu anticipation of
the appearance' of some daring house-thief, or
hideous hobgoblin. At length, as the small
hours of Another day approach, his wife, with
step unsfeadyTTcturns to her dutiful spouse,

pi m, The New York Times publishes the fol
lowing brief extract from a private letter from
Savannah, received ly tho steamer Florida:
"The Court of Columbia (S. C.) having re
fused to hear the appeal of Manuel Percira, a
colored sailor of the British brig Janson, driven
in by distress and condemned, now iu jail here,
and have postponed the hearing lo January,
1S53, in Charleston!"
What shall we do to conceal this fact from
the Emperor of Japan? If ho should hear of it
he will certainly, iu tho fullness of his great
heart, say that it is his solemn duty to put a stop
to this stupid exclusive policy of a set of nar
row minded barbarians, and lorce tliem to keep
pace Willi the age.
Doubtless his ministers will agree with him,
that he should force tho American barbarians
to adopt a policy more ill accordance wilh tho
progress and enlightenment of Japan, the great
controlling centre of the world. It will then bo
resolved that a fleet shall bo sent to tho United
Suites to demand that, when mariners belonging
to any nation, shall be cast in distress upon tho
shores, or forced to enter any port, tl"'y shall
be treated in accordance with tho laws of hu
manity. Pittsburgh Journal.
Who is Hit? The Boston Museum says:
The editor of the 'Cayuga Chief swings his
tomahaw k at a large class of newspaper readers
in the following manner:
"It is our private opinion, publicly expressed,
there is buret aeed dishonesty exhibited by a
large cross of newspaper patrons (!) They
will take a paper one, two or three years, ma
king use of what they never paid for, and then
coolly send it back with the announcement ' re
fused.' Such men do not wish lo take it any
longer! If a man should buy a plough and wear
it out, and then send back the handles with tho
news that he did not want to use it any more, he
would be set down as a scant pattern c,vj
It is cool swindling to read a publf"!1' f ra
