The value of the Amazon when ready for sea was
about X'1C0,(CO, and she it unrterstood to have cost
the Royal Mail Kteam Packet Company nitty mat
sum. it is said that she is not insureJ, an 1 the loss
will consequently fall entirely upon the insurance
fund of the company?a fund exclusively devoted
from, annual grants derived from the profits of the
cimpany toward ?asualtiesot shipwrecks and loss
of their vessels. The value of the specie, quick- I
silier, ?arg?>, Ac , when added tothe value of the
ship will give a total loss af property of little less I
than JWio,i((' sterling. The ?ives, families, friends, j
and rnnnartjftll of most of tne crew of the Amazon
reside in Romhanip'on, and the melancholy event
has caused a Ceep gloom in the town. Many of tae
officers, engineers, seamen, rVr , have wives and

" Before the Cabinet differences respecting the

"These fails, having been made known to Lord

additional interest was manift<led in the lecture

He thought the external form ol poetry inn it be rc

t try suggests itself to be tue life of the soul au t of
the affections, while Prose is tue langu.'ite of the
pattiont. The tubllme poetry of Milton was car
taiuly tha voice of the soul. At man It lower tha i
the angels, so are the afTcctious lower than the soul.

The Problem of Human Destiny

lkctcbk r
'I"tic course of lectures liy Rev. Orvilh*
Deaey, on the Problem o! Human Destiny, wat
opened last evening in the < fun h of the Messith
before a numercus audience. The special interest
of the problem, said Pr Dewey, which He proposed
to discuss consisted in the fact of the existence <?f
evil. Withoat thit the condition of man on earth
would present few mysteries. Floating down the
easy current of existence, he would be a mere par
taker of enjoyment he would observe, but would
not question ? and content wiih the present, wjuld
not attempt to explore the fuluio for the solution of
his doubts. But evil exists It throws its dark
shadow over the tauest venet of our present life
We are exposed to physical evil, which is pain, and
to moral evil, which is sin. An irresistible mvim t
has always compelled the human intellect to pry
into the reason of this con 'if.on of our being.
It n ay be said that the subject is above our corn
prehension. Man, in attempting to penetrate its
depth*, has been compared to I liy. attempting to ex?
plain the revolution of a wheel, by which ho is car?
ried round But with this mock modesty, said Dr.
I) , 1 do not sympathize It is the sentiment of the
atheist or skeptic. It proceeds from arrogance rath?
er llian humility. Fran the famous saying of So.
crates, that ba knew nothing but hxs own ignorance,
had Its origin in intellectual pride For my own
part, co'.nnued the lectu-er, I make no claim to this
philosophical ignorance. 1 renlure lo believe that I
know something about the subject, ar d stand here to
tell what it it. Not that I pretend to have wholly
fathomed ill infinite depths. I hare not exhausted
its i Ujaitabla wealth. Nor doOS the emigrant to
California exhaust tbe affluent stores of her goUen
placers. But this fart does not forbid our eiigagfBg
in tha research with confidence, for we mmj be t>r
tatn that some precious fruit will await our laior.
. or after ah, it is a protdei? which we j.
discuss. And s problim. by us etymol"gypr<i ta o
Ureek. nieuaasouaeAhiug wbieh u thrown on fee a i
Btdorattoo, MtaetBiag to bo exassined on u. >? i-i
like u ball wbicb islo be kept rolling. We ma) ton
.. i. a the universe to a ball, aroaad round wita tne
myrtenet of life, of which we endeavor to c itch a
glimp.se in us rapid revolution, even if we cannot
fathom Its vatt piofuu titles After a teries of com?
ments on the argument of LaibatU, *- set forth IB
the Tin, ice, L>r D. aasi that he siiould etplaui
the existence of evil on the foil iwaig principles
It is no limitation of the attributes of tae'Deity to
assert that he cannot make a contradiction pusible.
1 he illustration is often used to it (,od cannot make
two mountains without a valley between the at, B it
the qeetth n does not tavolva th.- noaatOetstifta of
i ower, in the slightest degree, it is not correct to
say, that flod cannot do the thing, but that the thing
cannot be It i an absurdity, iu the nature of things
It follows from tup nature of a triangle, that the sum
of its ang.es ih e<;uil to three right aiiirlei Itcaa
not be otherwise. To ask whether Ood BOUld not
make a triangle, the three angles of which should be
eipial to fire or set en right angles, is the same as to
ask whether he coulu construct a figure, whioh
should be a triangle and not i tiungle at the same
time, or in other words, whether he could make an
impostibility possible.
Applying these pnr.ciplei to the question of the
origin of evil, Dr. D argued that the present system
! - creati d. it not self-exitient, does not depend on
its own inherent enrridea Hence, it must be
limited Thit it lavoived in tne fact of creation.
The thing created cannot share the fuliuuti of the
Creator. The finite mutt by the Basare of the case
be inferior to the Infinite on wnich it depends.
Hence, it must be imperfect, and hence kwl,natural
und niora' It is inherent in tbe very idea of cre?
ation. Its absenre would be an lmpostitulity, won d
imply a ceiitrauiction for if the created being were
not liable to evil, it would be perfet. but perfection
is an attribute of the t rtator. The oreature and
the Creator, on this .suppos.tion, would oe identical.
Evil must therefors be inevitable iu any system of
neat on.
'I l.e si>me thought may be presented in another
I kht. All created being DHtSt begin somewhere.
1 he 'act of beginning imj lies infancy, or imperfec?
tion, or in other woict evil The first time a thing
is done, the result must be inferior to the BXceUaaee
which tomes from long practice This is another
illustration of the insvitaoieness of evil in a created
Proceeding from tbe te viewt, to tbe fact of Ihe
moral freedom of man. !>r D showed that evil was
an etsti.t.al coBttogaBl IB tbe discipline by which he
was trained to virtue and hsppiaess. Thu petal
was elucidated by a variety of con^iderati'ins. with
?ha b the lecture was finady brought to a close.
