Wo nro fetching tho pooplo of Cairo
into tho lino of religious duty leading
thorn to tho religious trough and inducing
thorn to feed upon tho liny, oats and corn
of tho Into faith. This fact is becoming
obsorvablo to tho most casual observer,
nnd wns particularly notlccablo on Sunday
lust. At C o'clock on tho morning of thnt
day, ovcry man, woman nnd child in
Cairo got out of bed, and n number prayed.
Ono man, who is n constant reader of Tiik
Bcllktin, prayed In n cold room before
ho had jumped into his pantaloons, which,
wo tako it, was an amazing instance of
religious zeal. During tho day somo of
tho pooplo devoted themselves to silent
communion with their own hearts and bal
anced up all tho wickedness they had
been guilty of during tho week nnd par
doned themselves; others smoked their
matutinal pipes nnd thought what they
ought to do; many did not think at all,
boing perfectly satisfied with their own
acts and doingi and to "carried their
own Insurance with them ; " somo made
good resolutions which they did not intend
to live up to. Many attended worship at
the churches, and, to bo brief, the reli
gious goose hung very high. Wherefore
wo rejoice, and rise up to our great work
confident of our ability to perform the
task we havo set ourselves to do the
tusk of nuking Cairo the great religious
center of thecountry. Wa are at this
moment directing all our btitterWs of the
religious kind agninst thecitalel of the
A'icked perverseaes of one of the alder
men of tbe second ward, and if we can
bring him, and then gobble Phil. Howard,
our way is clear ur ihip is ready and
the winds are fair and we are bound to
mooui own Mrj Ann. We add this bo
eaot it it onr habit to conclude oir elo
quent articles with an appropriate stanza,
and where is one more appropriate than
this" We are bound to see our own
Mary Ann !
Rev. .Mr. Ilradley called on us yester
day to explain why ho had failed to irn
rnere Thomas Johnson in tho waters of
tho Ohio river, and wo cttecrn it our duty
to say that tho responsibility of tho failure
rests upon tho shoulders of Shoriff Irvin.
Mr. Uradley, anxious to obey theordors of
tho Spirit, but fearful of tho persecuting
spirit of tho laws, sought among his friends
to ascertain whether he would bo hanged
or imprisoned if ho were toimtnerso John
son, and Johiton, who is bed ridden by
sickness, wero to die immediately after be
ing plunged beneath tho flood, lieing his
most Ultimata friend, Mr. Uradley con
sulted us first. Wo uro a luwyer as well
as a religionist, and informed llradluy that
no responsibility would attach to him In
the suggestud exigency that, in fact, ho
was In duty bound to put Johnson under
tho water, if tho spirit had so directed,
oven if man's law, lit dellnnco of tho
Lord's wish, should insist on having lilm
hanged five minutes nftor thu Immersion
ceremony. Hut Mr. Uradley, after his
conversation with us, called on Sheriff
Irvin, who is his " next friend, " and was
discouraged by tho gontleman, who told
him Unit, if Johnson should dlo in live
minutos or half an hour after
tha ceremony of immersion, tho
law would surely demand that tho ofllci
nting minister should bo hnnged ns high
ns Daman. This decided Mr. Uradley
Ho said ho wus willing to bo hanged rather
than disobey tho order of tho Lord, but it
was asking too much oflilm torcquirotlmt
ho should run tho risk of bolus; linngod ns
high ns Hainan for baptising Johnson.
Tho consequenco wns, Johnson was
soused In his own bed chnmbor, und the
requirements of tho letter of tho Lord's
law thus satisfied. Whether it .will stick,
that is to say, is n truo immersion ono
thnt will onablo Mr. Johnson to got into
glory, is not exactly clear to our mind;
but wo lmvo no doubt it will aid him con
siderably in his efforts to rench tho king
dom. At nil events, it is bottor than no
Immorsion at all, nnd wo congratulate
him ; but wo tremblo for Sherltf Irvin.
Ho Is in a dangerous predicament has
upon his shoulders a heavy responsibility;
which can only bo washed nwoy by ru
pontnuco nnd Immersion nenr tho Mono
depot by Rov. Mr. Rradloy.
