Our cotemporary's columns hav been p leadiop; ior a library for Mem phis, and wo are glad to sea that somebody is awaketiitiK to the importance ol the tuljnct. We wish to inform thepe interebted that we have chc.-.dy, at the Odd Fellow.i ha'l, the nuc'.iu and ccuiiueacerrunt of what may be made tin excellent library. The situation is cenltal, thy library-room is a (jood one with a read ire;-room separate for the ladies. The libr:irim is untiring in his att n iou to his duties, and is never rr..re frratiiied than when Etrangera come in and look over the library. A large number ot bojks are already cu the thrives; the works of many of tha best authors s re to be fouud there, nd only a good membeiKhip is re quired to nuke tbiw library all that Is waiitcd. The greatest defect at present is the absence of the prominent American and English magazinee, without which a reading-room is a tel;copo with the tLifses left out. It would be saxidal to set up a rival to this in stitution Memphis can support only one library, but it could make that library a pood one. Lot tho-ij who, through the pag!s cf our cotempcrary, are advocating the efc'ab lishment ot n library, visit the cr.ti at O id Fellows hail; they will be meet cordially re ceived. Let them observe its capabilities, and they will learn that it can be made all that can bo desired. Plenty of members is what is now wanted. The room is ready, the Iwcka ere ready, the directors and librariau are ready; let m.'mbers register themselves and give the benefits of their knowledge and experience, aud devote some energy to build up the institution, and Mem phis will have a library to bo proud of, a library that will iuf-rni tha :-i.oiant, gratry the irjijuirer, urou-e laleut talent, store th'j mind with intellectual rubes, and firm our youn-' people to b pried business m-n aud intelligent members of soeit-ty.

Til K -t i'K.lEI BASKS. The buspensioa of the banks in New Or leans ap.ears to have had the result of quiet ing tbe panic tendency effectually, iu that place. Advices received here intimate that currency payment is likely to be resumed in full tberj before the date appointed. Iu this city New Orleans exchange is taken as uiual by our backs from their customers. St. Louis has tot acted s; the Republican, of Friday, 8aj6: "The only change in the relations of the St. Louis an! New Orleans bank?, bo far as the commercial cisrr"r"i-i',v Vere is con cerned, is in the matter of exchange on New Oiiearjfr. which will oaly be taken lor collec tion at the rhk of back customers so loag as this state of affairs continues. Ordinarily ex change is bought outright and the amount called for passed to the credit of the customer at once, but now tbe mpjority ol the backs wiil only receive for collection, giving no credit to the depositor of the biils until pay ment is made in New Orleans and transfer to New York cr remittance here effected. Uuder the ordinary procedure where the x chatge is bought the St. Louis bank assumes responsibility as soon as collection is made by its New Orleans correspondent, whereas under the mle now enforctd, tho bills being taken for collection, tbe customer takes the risk of any loss alter the funds bave got into the bands of the New Orleans bank." The same paper says tbe affair affected tb.ir banks very little. Our Memphis tanks say they have felt not the slightest ripple from tho occurrence, and as nothing has been henid from Helena or Vicksburg, it is con eluded those cities experience no incon venience. It is pleasant to know how well fortified cur banks are if tbe ripple had been felt. Readers of our financial column know that ever since tbe opening of November we have been mentioning tbe impossibility of finding employ ment for money here, end that such was the plethora of capi'al at our banks that they bad bought heavily of gov ernment four per cents as a means of ridding themselves of idle money lying in their vaults. The last reports of their condition i-sued by our banks, snow how licb in menns they are, end as borrowers have been so very few, their means are within reach. The cotton business done has been large, and. what has made it more' oui rous on the banks, it has liee-n squecz-'d into two months less space than it usually occupies. Exchange, when from four to six thousand bales of cot'on a day was selling, flooded the banks. Yet through tbe whole sea?0T no hitch has occurred in our money niattsrf; our bunks bave met every contingency, every call upon them, promptly and liberally. Such a thing as a tight money niaiket Las not been heard cf in Memphis this season, yet the strain, in cotsequence of two months being taken out of the period within which the cotton is usually sold, has been stronger than commonly occur. No enterprise having a lair chance has failed here, this year, for want ot means. In fact money in cur market has been a heavier drug thau any stock cf mercantile goods in the city. It is to be derired, for the interest of trade, that money about d be called for with more spirit, but there is the satisfaction of knowing that, if the money in our banks lies quit!, it is there, and it is accumulating, so that it is ready if ad versity should come, and ready when re turning "good times" brings into active use all tbe capital that can be got bold of. l-K4FEStALi C'O I .'UTfi&Y. Heandalona Scene In a ISIeli Cbatuber lnsemly Wraaacle between Rel atives and a I'hjBleian at the Vedaide of slly. Ine fcilrl. Shelhyville, Indiana, epscial to the Cincin nati Enquirer: "The village of Lewis Creek, twelvti miles south of here, is much agitated by a scandal o! an unusual aud peculiarly etiocking nature, growing cut of occurrences connected with the death ot a young lady who was buried thsre yesterday. The story iii ust ates most forcibly tbe maxim that iu a multitude of counselors there is distinction, and that the patient often dies while the doctors ere btariug at each other. The de tails, as gathered by your reporter, are as follows: Three weeks ago Miss Laura Sulli van, an attractive young lady, aged twenty one years, and daughter of Mr. Noah Sulli van, a wealthy citizen of Lewis Creek, took sif-k with pneui ouia. Dr. V. A. Pettigrew, a physician of t he town, was called to a!iend the patient, and waited on her regularly for two weeks, aliss SuiSivan grew worse day by day, until Friday last, when the attending phyai ci:in announced that the case was hopeless, and that she could not live longer than the next day. The patient, however, lingered Ontil Monday without any perceptible change for the worse, though the d .ctor continually repeated during the time that she could only survive a few hours. On Monday evening the relatives determined to call in another physician. MhsSullivnn's father consented to ibis, but remarked that he thought it un necessary. Accordingly Dr. Samuel A. Ken nedy, of this city, was summoned and ar rived at the patient's bedside about ten o'clock on Monday night. Then an extra ordinary scene occurred. I hi recent!' ar rived physician was vtry coldly received by Dr. Pettigrew, and curtly informed by the latter that he had not yet given up tbe case. At this juncture numerous friends and ie!a tives crowded into the sick chamber, among the number being Fiank Sourlin and John V. Sullivan, cousins of tbe sick lady. Tueie ycung men tfatiy contradicted Dr. rit'i- grew e statement, declaring thst he had abandoned the case and authorized the em ployment of another physician. Pettigrew ai.gi'ily denied this, and a regular quarrel eu-ued, during which charges of lahehood and doubl i dealing were mutually exchanged. the controversy raged with great fury for several minutes, and came near culmi nating in a savage tight between the psrtics, but, fortunately, the cooler persons present succeeded in preventing so scandalous a ro cult. All this squabbling and recrimination, it is said, occurred right over tbe prostrate form of tbe dying girl, whose eyes, already fixed in the stare that presages early dissolu tion, mutely appealed to the combatants for peace and quiet during her tew remaining hours. Dr. Kennedy finally withdrew from the hens-?, being unwilling to have anything to do with tbe cae uader the circumstances, and his departure caused a temorary cessa tion of the trouble. Miss Sul ivan died the next morning at ten o'clock, and it is the general opinion of the citizens of Lewis Creek that her death was hastened by the unseemly wr ingle iu her room the night orevious. Excitement runs high over tbe idlair, and further trouble 13 expected to arise, but whether it will take the shape of personul difficulties or a suit against the attending physician remains to hi seen. The doctor's strange conduct has caused much surprise, and great indignation prevails in the com munity, chiefly directed against Pettigrew and tbe father of the dead Kirl." Another Outbreak in Ureathltt. Cincixnatt, March 20.

Mr. C.tmeroa said he might make New Orleans bis home at some future day, and wanted her to come with him. She thought that she would like him, because be was kind and gentle. Her first meeting with Mr. Cannroc was in 1S74. She saw hitu about the Marshall estate, and it being a claim against the United States, she thought thai, he would take some interest in it. Her visit n-.rth at that time was to see h-;r daughter, who was in a convent at Phila delphia.. She spoke to Mr. Cameron about it, and ak d his a-isista ice to get her away. The marriage ceremony between her and Mr. Oliver was performed by Mr Oliver's book k:'ep r ia the pieseuce of Mrs. O.iver. Soe asked Mr Cameron i: it was legal, and he said that if she had not seen Mr. Oliver since the war the c; lvmony amounted to nothing.

In August, 1815, juat before NaDoIeon I started oa hi3 exiie to St. Helena, a quantity of handbills were distributed through the city of Onester, England, at the direction ot a very Q lakeily-looking sort of a personage, iu forming the public that a great number of genteel faioilies had embarked at Plymouth lo proceed to St. Helena with the troops ap pointed to gu ild the ex-emperor. Now, St. Helena, the bills stated, was cursed with a plague of rits, and the British ministry bad p.'edged itself to clear the island of those uosiius animals for the benefit of the resi dent, citizens. Accordir.gly, all good Britons were called upon to furnish their quantum of grown cats or tbiiving kittens for the carry ing out of this purpose. Tbe government was willing to pay tbe piper, and in addition to free transportation in a vessel to be especially chartered for the purpose, offered for each "athletic, full-grown tom-cat," sixteen 6b liings; fcr each "adult female puss" ten shillings; and halt that sum for every vigorous kitten that could "swill milk." The result can be imagined. Within three days over three thousand Cuts were collected in Chester, the city was a pandemonium, and one sireet in which tbe cat merchants had been directed by biil to assemble was the scene of positive and bloody riota. Mean time some mischievous boys had let tb9 cats out cf their bags, and a colossal hunt had to be organized among the hoaxed spectators. In one day five hundred of tbe obnoxious fe lices had be:-n thrown into the Dee, and Chester far months was afflicted with Bwarms of slray cats as the result ot the freak.

Tale of the Tlmea-A Kalr Amerl raa Infatuated by a Foreigner A Wire and Mother Olvorred from br Huftbaad nnd Meparatd from her Child. Nkwpokt, R. I., March It. General Albert G. Lawrence was granted a decree ot divorce from his wife, Eva Lawrence, yester day, no defense being made by Mrs. Law rence 'slcounsel. Tbe decree was made out in its usual way, with thJ following addi tion: '"And it is ordered, adjudged and di creed that the aforesaid Aib -rt G. Lawrence have the sole custody, care and keeping ot ihe before-named minor child, Esther Gracie Liwrence." This Case has attracted consid eiable attention throughout the country from the high soci il standing of the. parties, ties ei til Lawrence is the son cf Ex-Governor William B ach Lawrence, of Rhode Islaud. who is widely known as an authority ou ln t roational law. Mrs Liwrence is a grand niece of General Zacbary Taylor, and was the widow of Captain Kingsley when General Lwrenco married ber. Captain Kings ley was killed at An'ietam, and was i-e.ving at he time on General Lawrence's sliift" He was the heir, with a sister and brothir, to great weakh, principally in Chi cago real estate. The sister was married to General Simon B. Backuer, of the Confeder ate army. Alter Captain Kingsley 's death bis widow went to Baltimore with her son, then a child of three years, and lesided with her mother. General Lawrence rema:ned at the head of h;s command until so sev re-ly wounded while leading a charge at Fort Fisher that his life was despaired of. He ri covered, with tbe loss of one arm, and with scars of wounds upon bis other arm and on his neck. He was married at his tat her"s resi -deuce in , Newport t o Captain Kingsley's widow on February 25, 1805, and is said to have lived very happily with his wife until some time in 1875. Much ol their timo was passed in Washington during tbe winter sea son, while tbe summer months were spent ;n Newport, Rye Beach and at the Ptquot house in New London. They also lived a year or mote in Europe. General Lawrence, after the war, spent; much of his time ia caring ior the estate of his wife and sou, which came to them thioog'u Captain Kingsley. There were complications in the settlement of this estate, owing to the fact that General Buokeer bad, when et texiog the Confederate bervice, trans ferred h s property to his bro'her-in-law. Cap tain Ki 'csiey, to pievent co:fiscation. Captain K ngsley recogn-zj.1 thin as a trust estate merely in the will that be drew up just before the battle cf Antietam. But the will was declared inva'id, and therefore the whole property, estimated at several mil lions, went to Mrs. Kingsiey and the son. Subsequently General Buckner brought suit for the propertv, and offered the will to prove that Capa;n Ktigsley held the estate intrust only, and he won the suit. Still there was a large property lett for Captain Kingsley's heir--. In 1875 General Lawrence accepted an appointment from General Grant to serve on a commission that went to the Black Hill, and it is alleged that it was during his ab sence that Mrs. Lawrence became unduly in timate with Aniedee Van den Nest, the sec retary of the Belgian legation at Washing ton. General Lawrence for a long time is said to have been in ignorance of the ios? of his wife's affections, but in the summer of 1877, while in New London, he was obliged peremptorily to forbid Van deu Nest further acquaintance with Mrs. Lawrence. The in timacy was renewed, and during fas absence from Newport in tbe winter of 1873, Mrs. Lawrence sailed for Europe, and was fol lowed by Van d n Nest, who obtained a leave of abseuce. He was subsi qucntly dismissed the diplomatic service. General Lawrerca became sat sfi.-d that his wife intended t leave bim permanently, and scon after found compromising letters iu Van den Nest's hand writing. These letters were submitted to Mr. Carroll Livingston, cf New York, and Mr. Brigbam Willing, of Philadelphia, who were personal friends of General Law rence. Tbey accepted a delicate mis sion from General Lawrence, and. Foil ing Van den Nest in London, showed bim the letters, and demanded either an acknowl edgment or denial from bim of being their autnor. rae auciuceu trial he wrote them, and corsented to meet Geuoial Lawr-nce, wno naa aiso sauej tor t,uroioe. on the fa- d. a few miles from Brussels, within tn dnysl The meeting took place. Mr. CirrollL-vici?- ston acted as truneral Lawrence s friend, and a cousin of Vau den Nest's performed the same oince tor him. it is also understood that Mr. James Gordon Bennett was on the field. General Lawrence is reported to have fired first, without effect, and Van den Nest theu discharged bis pistol in the i.ir. Ther. was no other exchansre of shots. General Lawrence returned to Newport iu September, and at once began the suit that was heard to-day. it has been understood that Mr Lawrence would make no defense, ia case on'y sufficient evidence was offered to secure the divorce. Mrs. Lawrence has been living since the duel in Paris. In the divorce trial on Monday, Isaac Lawrence testified as fol lows: "1 am he mother of Albert G. Law ranee, the plaintiff in this Buit. I know him and his wife. They resided at my father's nouse, uenre roint, lor hve or six years. M v brether has resided there since Februarv of last year.

In 1875 he used to visit .Mrs. Lawrence in the parlor of the Rve H. arh house, and remain until one or two o'clock in the morning. O.her parts of her testi mony pointed clearly to the criminal irfa macy. At New London, two ve.irs atrn. thn general forbada Mr. Van den Ni st to visit his wite.

Democratic IHec'plice. Habrisburg, Pa., March IS. A promi nent senator, wlui represents one of the largest Democratic dittricts ia tha State, re turned from Washington to-day. Referring to tbe Randall-Wallace fight, he says that there was but one of the Pennsylvania dele gation in congrtss who sympathized with Wallace. Ail were ot the opinion that he made a great blunder in assailing the claims ot a rennsyivamau tor the speakership. The senator referred to denied that there was any significance attached to R mdall's election so tar as related to an expression of the State delegation on the Presidential question. He said that quite a number of those for Randall were op.oosed to lilden. lie further Btated that leading Democratic politicians in the State blame botb Randall and Wallace for allowing their personal spite to tun so far. They thick that some concessions should bave been made on both sides, find they con demn the policy that led to an open rupture. When the senator lelt vvashingtou arrange ments were being made for in early meeting of the Pennsylvania delegation in congress, betore whom it is designed to call both Kin- dall and Wallace, and, alter reprimanding them, measures are to be adopted looking toward a reconciliation of tbe belligerents in tbe interest ot pe-ace and party organization. A ltura-lar who Knew Store Than a JJ uilie. Windeor (Vt.) correspondent of tbe New York Sun; "A man about thirty five years of age was arrested for burglary, committed at the store of Robbins & Marsh, at North Cheater, Vermont. At his trial hs gave bis i.anie as John Hammond, or 'California Jack,' and proved himself quite an inter esting character. Although a young attor ney was assigned him, he conducted his own case. At the impaneling of the jury be inquired of each of them whether be would have any conscientious scruples against acquitting a prisoner should it be shown that he bad been ironed, band and foot, and dricged all ever New York and Vermont. During the progri s of his trial he would interrupt, a witness with, "iou need not answer; I object," etc., and when cvri-ruled by the judge, who was a member of the supreme court. Jack would take exceptions o his. rulings, and upon these he appealed to the supreme court re cently held at Woodstock, before which he won his point and obtained a. new trfal.

Columbjs (Ohio) special to the Cleveland Herald: "Mr. Covert introduced a bill this morning which will, no doubt, create some stir in church circles and will more especial ly draw the attention of the ruling powers of thn Catholic church. The bill provides that alter the first day of July. 1879, ail ptoper.y owned in this State in lands, tenements, moneys, bocd, credits, or any goods cr chat tels of any kind by any church or religious organization, shall be held and managed ex clusively by a board of trustees appointed by the memoers of such church or religious cr gan za. ion. It further provides that after the debt above mentioned it shall be unlawful for any clergyman, bisuop, or priest, to bold in bis own name and to control tbe use ot any property in lands, tenements, moneys, etc., a :d thut where any property is eo held con trary to the prov t ions of the act, tbe person holding it sha'l be liable to a fine of not less than two hundred nor more than five hundred doll.'rs, and th-o property so held shall b-o listed for taxatioa aud be taxed the Sam.' as u'l private property. The penalties for the infraction of the act may be enforced in any common pleas court by the prosecut ing attorney of the county wherein the prop erty so held is situated. The property i f most churches and religious organizations is now held according to tne provisions of this act by boards of trustees, but the property of the Catholic church is held in ths name of the priest of the parish and the bishop of tbe dioces-., hence it will fa seen that this bill strikes more direet;y at that church than any othsr."

Ucnorrats In Control of tfce Kat local Legislature and What In Likely to t'ouir or It Iadlralls.il from the onwtltutioa or tbe Nei.Hio Finance Committee. Washington special to the New York Her ald : "A political doctor if long experience, but of sanguine temperament, remarked to day after the installation ot the speaker: 'Well, the Democratic parly has sadly passed a crisis aad seems to me now to bave a reasonable chance oi recovery. Put the pa tient ueeds careful nursing and very good luck to get through atter nil ' Undoubtedly the re-election u! Mr. Racu.ill saved bis party from immediate ruin. Tnis piece of good fortune gives it breathing time. It might even be said that the fact that Mr. Randall could get a majority in tbe Demo cratic caucus is evidence ihr.t the better e.e ments predominate in the party iu the new house, far be had to struggle again' the very vigoicus opposition of ad to whom his un flinching policy ot economy and opposition to subsidies and jobs has made- bun hateful, lhe election o: Mr. Blackburn, especially afti r the publication by his friends of hi? letter declaring lor legai-tender and unlimit ed jlver, wouid have Hung tho party head long into the arms of the Greenbackers, aud tbe election ot Mr. Randall has at least delayed thit Catastrophe. But it yet remains to be seen where the new congress is going to laud, and whether the Demociats, who now control both houses, are going to impose a deficits policy oa their priy or re peat the blunder of making i' n sjmble "Mr. Facing-Both-Ways'' in tbe Pilgrim's Prog ress. Tbe constitution of the Democratic part of tne senate finance committee, us it is reported this eveninp, certainly looks like the continuation ot the contradictory and forcib'y leeble pol.cy on the currency, wbich has di minished the Democratic iajor.ty in the house troai over sixty in 1875 to less than a dczen ia 187'J, and has le't the party av. larte a prey to con-tant!y increasing dissensions. Tne Democrats in tho senate finance com mittee ought to represent some definite opin ion on the currency question, but their names are Bayard and Keraan, bard money; Wal lace on tbe fence, but leaning to soft money; and Voorhees and B'rck, extreme inflation. 'Vicbever you please, my little dears,' said the showmau v. hen be whs asked which was the elephuot and which the hyena; 'you pays your money and you takes youi cboice." And that is the best that can be said of the Democratic rod ot the senate finance committee. Messrs. Bayard and Kcr nan will have to depead on the help of the Republican members to beat tbeir own party friends on any important measure. It is true that in the last congress the Republican hard money men on the committee had in like manner to get Messis. Bayard and Ke;nan to help them to boat the Republican inll a'ion ists, but that does net better the present Democratic position, which is embarrassing acd humiliating to men just coining into the control ot botb branches of congress, and it shows that the Democrats, even in the senate, have not the wit to see that it is a blucger to allow their opponents to take the side cf ac complished facts on this question. The truth is, the manner in which the Democratic sen ators have fra.ned the committees shows that they do not expect to retain control of the senate for more than two years. If tbey were conscious of the new and important duties and responsibilities this control imposed upon them as Democrats, they would bave cast aside the stupid old seniority rule by which senators rise oa committees regardless of fit utss or opinions, by mere length ot service, as do olK.era of an army ou a peace footing, ttd would bave gathered the r ablest men on tbe most important toa-mittees, an. I taken care that such a committee us that on finauco thou d mean something. As they bave arranged it, either tbe Republican members will control it ior sound money, and Mr. Bayard will be merely their mouthpiece, or be will bave the still greater humiliation cf being conlrol'ed by Democratic aud Republican infl itionists. As to the house committees fortunately the speaker wiil not appoino i. oeni for tbe pres ent. It is understood t.oat Mr. Randall favors a short sessioa i ni a quick dispatch cf only tbe absolutely r'.cessary business. It ii tot necessary even to appoint committees cn appropriations aad judiciary. All the bills which must be passed were perfected by the last congress imd the house can make needful changes in committee ot the whole if such should be required. There is reason to hope, thtrelore, that the ecssion will not last more thau two cr three weeks, though nothing is pertain in this matter. Concern ing the political legislation uo definite plau has been agreed on so far. There is much talk of an absurd scheme to pass the army bill with the provision about troops at the p. lis, the repeal of the teat oaths and the change in the juror laws first, all of which the President is expected to sign, and then to pss the legislative bill, with the repeal of the supervisor and deputy matshal laws hitched on, send it to tbe Presideut and if he vetoes it adjourn without farther action. It is amazing that thi3 crazy scheme has the apparent conrent cf a few men who usually possess common sense. But it is not likely to be adopted, bee 'use most sensible Democrats here see and acknowledge that tbe supervisor law is of little importance and gives no just cause of complaint, be cause two supervisors are ia all cases ap pointed, one from each party. Some south ern journals atd many southern men also say openly that they prefer to keep the su pervisors, as being not merely harmless but in many cases useful. The only real and substantial cause of difference that remains, therefore, is tbe law permitting the appoint ment of deputy marshals for elections, be cause tbjee are selected by the marshals, who are, of course, in strong sympathy with the party in power. It is charged that this deputy marshals' law simply gives the party in power an important campaign fund from lie rv.Vd'o tr"i tiry. end thi ' i" ?-Hfr : '!r l.t.''

These officers may re-c-y.ve fiity dollars each from the public treasury, a handsome Dribe in these bard times. It the Democrats were good tern; f red aud thoroughly informed, and if they bad wit en. ugh to let the supervisors law stand u:-d io a we: l-cocductea debate show up the ev.is and hbusis of the deputy-marshals law, it wouid be possible for them to make the Republicans ashamed of it and ready at least ro so iuoa:iy and guard it as to make it fair. Bat they are likely to put tbenseives in tue wrong before the country by foolish ar.d angry action. What is remarked here in general is tuat too many of the Demo crats, com. tig after twenty years once more into the control of both bouses nf congress, act rather as persons who have fallen beirs to a grsat lortune than as people upon whom a vary serious responsibility has devolved. Of course there are many exceptions to this. In each house there are among the De.uocrats a cum' er of men of sound democratic princi ples and of undoubted and great capacity und wisdom, but it must be confessed t hat they are slow to take command. The selec tion of Mr. Randall as speaker will belp them, but tbey are slow lo understand that it is their first duty to have a definite policy." They will Klsht It Out en That 1.1 ae. Kte.

Kxlnts there 14 Also tots Obligation to Keep the t-tabbath Holy "OUiMoscsr Editors Appeal, I have read your reply to my first article. I cannot permit jou to escape irom your own reason'ng. You must hold one of these three prv positions: Either that tbe attempt to enforce the Sunday order can be perfectly successiul, or that it can be partly succ -sbIuI, or thut it can be suc.essful to no extent even the least. The first you of course will not choose. The third you will also refase, since it is palpably contrary to fact. Therefore, tbe 6econd ma t represent you fairly. But the phrase, ' Can be partly successful," is identical in meaning with the phrase, "Cannot be perfectly successful." Hence your argument stands just as I repre sented ii. You hold that any attempt to en force law which cannot be perfectly success ful should not be made. Ard this, of course, subverts ail law. Evidently you bave im prisoned yoarseif, acd "Ttutia" finds no key with which to let you out. While you placidly "smile" through tho bars of your prison. I shall turn to some of yourcther extraordinary assertions. It Eeeins that you would take away fiom us christians our Sabbath. To please you we vnusf always say Sunday. Now this is too bad. Wc fondly thought we bad a Sabbath. We thought we could intelli gently defect! it, too. Ltot we must believe that we are the victims of childish delusion. We "unscrupulously" claim an institution which "has no foundation in our religion." Now we do not think we are unscrupulous people. Unscrupulous, according to Worces ter, means unprincipled. A bad word, sure ly! Moreovrr, wj will try to defend our Sabbath. We love it. We certainly wiix not surrender it without a struggle. You bave attacke.d an institution which ia dear to every christian's heart. Surely when you thdi invade the sacred precinct of religious belief you should bring with you eovae new form of infidelity and not trust to the anti nomianism which signally failed three centu ries ago. You say: "What tbe law taught by Moses was for the Jews, we are the de scendants ot Gentile converts, and on us the Mosaic law has no claim, as a rule of faith and life." (Italics lain'). This is tbe ground on which you ask us to surrender our Sab batb. namely, that it was made, not "for man," as Jesus Christ snys, but for a single nation, as you say. Jest here I join issue with you. I assert with my Savior, "tbe Sabbath was made fcr man." And I am ready to give reasons for the i'aith that is within mo; reasons which have satisfied intellects more profound than yours or mine. First, I arizue Irom tbe vurvose of !: - S. .! hi h. U v.. -! '- ;. ,cd 'o cotumem .t.n'e ihe liiiifiiin ;.i I ; i 's wut, iu creation iL.d rt dcfi.pl iou ; alio, to Le a day of rest for man; aiso, to be a type of heaven. All these ends it may subserve for Gentile and Jew alike. It was therefore intended for both. Secondly, I reason from the very cocstitrAion of human nature. Toe necessity for a Sab bath, is enstamped upon both tho bodies and souls of all men regardless q; nationality. Wherever men ignore this necessity they suf fer injury iu all departments of their being. Thirdly, I reason troia the tact that the com mandment of tbe Sabbath is in the very heart ot tbe moral law. The substance ol it ia no part either ot thj ceremonial law or of the Jewish oivii law. Wherever tbe obliga tion of tbe ten commandments exists, there also is the obligation to keep the Sabbath. The moral law, applicable to till men alike, is as eternal and as laimutahle as the God of whose will it is the transcript. The antino mianism which destroys the Sabbath must aiso destroy the only revealed basis of per fect morality. Acd. lastly, I reason from tbe history of the Sabbath. It waj given to Adam, that is to man ai mar.. lu date of crigin is synchronous with that of marriage. There are traces of its observance in tbe days ot Cain and Abel, of Noah, of Jacob when dwelling with Liban; ot M i.-es at Sinai when the command to remember this day was giver. A.nd so onward through Jewish his tory. When Christ comes, he treats tb.is jusi as ha docs all tee other cemmanduitcts, re formirgits abuses, but abating ticl one jot nor tittle of its sanctity, rckng exception only of works of neces-dtv uu.i TxiPicy, which really had already faiva excepted. The Savior also plait: Intimates that tbe insti tution should exist nnd be respected by his apostlei, after bis ascension (Muthew xxiv, 2UJ. Tbe apostles did observe a Sabbath, and Christ blessed them in tbe act. While they discouraged (he multiplication cf "holy days," thay yet tried lo be "in the spirit on tbe Lord's day." Eatly christians followed in their fooLsters, toe test question of perse cutors bein. "Dj you keep the Lord's day V Atd eo our Sabbath comes to us from Eden, and we will che-rii-h il until ii expands into the Sabbatisuii of heaven.
