One of tha most singular pbasei of tte present religions dTscuesion fo tba Bible in tha schools, and the advisability of tba absenoe of all lectarirniain in plaoea for the public instruction of youth it tha anomalous position in which tba opposing parties find themselves in. Tha Protestant scots are a unit in favor of ths Bible, the Catholics desirous of bating tha Bible discontinued, even if the movement gses no farther. At the commencement of tbe present century ths general belief in matters of religion was somewhat different from to-day. Then many things were accepted which are now rejected. A new light has shown on many dark places in the history of the great round planet on which all of life's plans and purposes go on, and unfortu nately with the progress of science and the spread of knowledge, steps with even pace tbe progress of atheism and tbe spread of pantheistio ideas. Throughout the world the scientific minds reject the Mosaic aocount of the creation, one gap made in the bulwark of Bible belief and tbe defense breaks down, yet tbe Protest ants of to-day uphold that as a partial text-book in the same sohools where another text book proves conclusively that the traces of glaoial aotion several hundred thousand years old are to be seen on the earth's surface to-day. While rejecting tbe belief tbey cling tu its origin and for ths sake of abstract re ligious principles place themselves in the anomalous position noted. Pantheism, which is the denial of the personality of God affords the half-way ground between that which is taught as tbe framework of the Christian religion and total infidelity. Yet in the abstract it is an unprovable hypothesis, and the logical action of the scientist which accepts nothing it can't prove is as much at fault in attempting to demonstrate the tangibility of an im personal Qod as in attempting to recon cile the preaent teachings of science and certain portions of the Christian dootrine handed down from time immemorial. It can be said in defense of tbe Bible that it never taught anyone that God can be known in ths same sense and relative re- . lation In which theology says we must. Tbe swelling tide of Infidelity that reached such ajfeaiful height eight-six years ago is now threatening to subvert some of society! best interests and pro duce a chaos that will necessitate the combination of present adverse interests to avert the oommon danger. I SF.LEHH 7. E Al binos the Cth instant, when lbs mem bers of tha Forty-fourth Congress took tbeir seats, a howl of indignation and vituperative torrent of abnse bss been given vent to by tbe Republican press of tbe country. Tbe simple fact of being a Southern Democratio member of Con gress was sufficient to dub tbe unfortun ate with infamy. " Tbe ei-Coofederate Congress now in session at Washington," is the wsy 'tis usually put forth. Apart from tbe evident unfairness of such ac tion on tba part of partisan press it must bs also evident to any unpre judiced looker on that it is useless and that such zeal is thrown away, and even recoils on tbe attacking party. In this country the press simply represents tbs growing tendencies of tbe people them selves. These tendencies the press re flects, leads and partially enforces. In this regard tbs press is the great political power, but it is more as tbe voice than the creator of publio sentiment that it holds such power. Tbe press alone, without backing, can not save a party or defend an administration. It must have the sympathy of tbe people behind it. It may augment the desired attributes in political sootety, it may shield politi cal disgrace or anticipate such disgrace by its intervention and preventive show ing, but tbe publio opinion that lies in the background is the real political power. For this reason the present e( forts of a partisan press are futile. Tbs great majority of the people are now more influenced by motions of fairness and desire to give the other side a chance, and will not subscribe to the unanimous press dissent on the personal status of tbe present Congress. A reasonable amount of watchfulness and a due regard for tbe public weal is justifiable, but such captious snarling as we daily read in bit ter partisan journals are both out of place and useless. The press of America is its hope, its prophet, its protecting spirit. With all this comes responsibility, and when any portion of the press betrays ths frnst, retribution is deserving and almost inevitable. PaoTicnoN.-It is in a manner consula tory that when everything is in a cbaotio condition and ws are all wandering in tbe dark Bishop Haven, of Connecticut, should put fourth President Grsnt as the "savior of bis country" and tbs man who is necessary to " protect " tbe peo ple. Some may have supposed the peo ple seeded no protection or were able to protect themselves. It is just possible tbs constitution is a failure, our forms oi Government in danger and an "Ameri can Protector" indispensable, but the worthy prelate will have some difficulty in convincing a good many of the fact. When a man beoomes " indispensable " in a community or in a nation it is about tims to look around for some one else, Aooording to the Connecticut Bishop, it indispensable Grant should unfortun ately follow ths example of the Vice President the country would go to tbe dogs for lack of some to one "protect our American institutions. Our Congressman, Mr. Woodbnrn, has lived so long in Nevada, where pick pockets are unknown, that bo hardly knows how to look out for himself, as the following will show : While three boys were playing on Eager street, near Morton alley, Balti more, on tbe 29tb ultimo, one fell over a garbage box. wbioh in tumbling threw out a pocket-book containing $1,200 in greenbacks. Tbs treasure trove was banded to Marshal Uray, ana tbe next day Congressman Woodburn of Nevada claimed tbe purse, but insisted tnatwnen lost, he knew not bow, it Hem 2,zuu. None of the boys have appeared to ask a reward. Ths proposed reanuexation of tbe provinces of Nice and Savoy to Italy di vides French interest with the Senatorial elections at present. There is a oorner on ballet girls for the Christmas festivi ties in San Francisco, and legs are at a premium. Tbe Empress of Germany has started a collection for the relief of those in jured by the dynamite explosion on board the Mosel. Two thousand Montreal men have been found willing to work for sixty cents a day, tbe alternative being that or starva tion. io Montana. Arizen and New Menoo. It is even broadly intimated ttst Bar- den's and Jennet's surveys, ostensibly undertaken for scientific purposes. wre In fact designed to further the purposes of tbs robbers. Tbs appraisers of the estate of the lute Thomas II. Selby have filed tbeir invent ory and appraisement. Tbe total value tba estate ia S2 'Ml.wn.OV. i oiaiuis again! it amount to $1.601,4.35.83 par able in gold, and $87,779.01 payable Id currency. Preparations are keiug made on tbe Lady Bryan mine to put ia pumping 1 machinery of ths largest and best char acter, wbiob, wben completed, will place tbe Lady Bryan on a footing with tbe flrst-olsss mines of tbe Comstock. Ths Begister says Captain McCasey, obief engineer at the Humboldt mill, has invented a new process for making shoes and dies for quartz mills, wmcn is saia to be ss durable as steel, and is as cheap as cast-iron. The first lot of twenty tons of ore now being worked at the Winnemucoa Reduc tion Works, from tbe Clemo mine, sec-ond-olsss ore, worked $68 per ton. It is thought that the first-olsss will go from $150 to $200 per ton. Tbe boys say there is plenty of tbe stuff in sigbt. A rich strike ia reported in the Bay City tunnel, Little Cottonwood. The tunnel is worked with closed doors, but it is shrewdly surmised that the Emma vein is tapped at considerable depth be low the English workings, and that tbe indefatigable Yankee will get away with Johnny Bull s bonanza while be is en gaged in hunting mares' nests in London. Five attempts have been made, says the Salt Lake Tribune, to have Utah ad mitted as a State. Tbe first was in March, 1849, wben Brigbam was nomin ated Governor, Wells Attorney General and John Taylor Associate Justice. The other attempts were in March. 1850; Jsnnarv, 18G2; March, 1872, and Decem ber, 1875, The Virginia Chronicle of tho 13th says: Tbs wells largo mine is in trouble. It has Btrnck water a large body of it. A stream burst in yesterday in the east drift about forty feet from the shaft. The rush of water caused a con siderable cave which, however, the Sup erintendent states has been taken up and securely timbered. At the same time a heavy stream was tapped in the west drift. This has been partially stopped, but work has been wholly stopped. Tbe water yesterday stood sixteen feet deep in tbs sump. BASKETS HOUSES. CLOTHING. ET0.

The plucky Ilerzegovinians have unan iuiously agreed to fight the Turk till he is expelled from their territory. Ex-Governor Moses of South Carolina notoriety has been elected Judge in the third judicial district of that State. The Industrial Age says " tbe Demo cratic party has two things to aocom plisb, viz: to satisfy its masters, ths bond holders and ths monopolies, and to do its level best to secure the succession at ths next Presidential eleotion. This is all it will do. The interests of tbe peo pie will receive about as much attention as Satan would give a horse." It also has to do whatever good lays in its power in ths foes of ths most determined and cynical opposition lu- any C ongres atonal history. Tbe mining prospects all alous the Comstock range were never so good as at present, and are continually on tbe improve. -Gold Hill News.

It is a bright looking little paper and talks saucy enough to insure pluck in tbe projectors. How to celebrate tbe Centennial is what ths Ban Franciscans are now busy discussing.

At the celebration in each county, pro vision should be made for tbe delivery of an address tracing ths history of tbat particular community for tbe past cen tury or from the time of its settlement, and including statigtics of its growth, its resouroes, industry, prosperity, etc These addresses should bs published in uniform size like tbe Congressional doouments for instance in order tbat thev mav be bound tocetber. The pre paration of suon addresses wonia not oe an unduly burdensome task, but in the sggregate, they would constitute an in valuable historical repository such ss no nation has ever had the opportunity to collect. Tbe designation of historians ought to be made without delay, in order tbat they may bave time to aooompusn their work. It la to be hoped that the Press will give general oiroulation to tbe proieot. and that each joernal will see to its consummation in its own looality, and tbat tbe slight expense involved will be assumed by theoounty or town authorities. Gknehal Maxwell. Marshal Max well says he has no intention of resign ing on January 1st, the frequent outside assertions to tbe contrary notwithstand ing. In this the General is Tight, for if there is one move that would tell against him at the present time, it is the tender of bis resignation. However, the Mar shal Bys tbat unless he is relieved finan cially, by the date mentioned, he will put up tbe bars and close the criminal business on the Territorial side of the oourt so far as bis office is concerned. Tbe load is heavier than he oun onrry, neither should it be required of him. We lrarn that the Marshal has invited tbe Territorial auditor to examine his aooounts and report on the same, and it is probable tbe auditor will comply with tbe request. A report by the auditor would be as good evidence as could be given, and if that officer, niter a careful investigation certifies tnnt the accounts are correct, it should aud doubtless will silence the tongues of the Marshal's ac cusers. tialt Lake Herald.
