The state of things out of which Mo hammedanism grew up was such that no one claiming the name of Christian can look back to it with any other feel' mgs than those of shame. The sixth century was pointed out in prophecy as the time when the transgressors are come to the full. In ail parts of the State there were se ditious and revolts, and in the Church it was the age of heresies. The very existence of God was mangled over un til He was a myth. Every heresy that has cursed and distracted the Church was found then in substance. Pro fessed Christians denounced, reviled, persecuted, butchered, aud assassinat ed one another, until the very name of Christian became a stench in the public nostrils. During this century the Christians suffered little persecution from Jews or .Pagans. It was not necessary. They destroyed themselves and each other much more completely than both Jews and Pagans could have done the work; so Satan outside of the Church had a rest. This condition of affairs cried to God for vengeance, and He raised up Mo hammed to do His work, and qualified him for it, and furnished him all neces sary assistance. Few men have been the sub jects of more abundant and varied abuse than Mohammed, and even to this day the system he founded is re garded by many who claim to be Intel ligent Christian men as the sum of all villainies, and the exponents of his system are placed outside the pale of toleration and respect. It is forgotten that he who could fouud a system which once set up has lasted almost thirteen centuries, and is to-day making rapid strides forward, should command the earnest and re spectful attention of thinking men in all nations. , Unless even the testimony of his ene mies is at fault, Mohammed was a man of splendid personal appearance, and gifted with a good understanding of human nature, and of the times in which he lived. He had a -vast and penetrating genius, a most attractive eloquence, and great personal intre pidity. That ho was ambitious and unscrupulous is equally true. One thing may bo Baid here: When he declared that he was commissioned of Uod to reform the religion of the world, he told the truth; for candor compels the admission that his system, bad as it was, was a great improvement ou the Christianity that preceded it. He set forth his principles iu the Koran or Mohammedan Bible, and owing to its intimate acquaintance with both the Jewish and Christian organizations, some have affirmed that Mohammed could not have written it; and some have in consequence af firmed its direct inspiration, whilst others have attributed its existence to Sergius. Mohammed could not write, and the most reasonable solution is that he dic tated and that Sergius acted as aman uensis. In support of this theory, it is urged that iu some parts of Cust or Ethiopia the knowledge of the true Ood re mained a long time. The wife of Mos es was au Ethopian. Some of that people were in the service of King Da vid. Solomon subdued at least a part of that country. Under Zerah, their king, they Invaded Judea. During the Babylonish captivity many Jews went into that country, and still more during the wars of the Syrian succes sion. At the day of Pentecost Arabi ans were presen t. Philip baptised an Ethopian or Arabian eunuch. The Apostle Paul visited them, as also did Bartholomew. And added to all these facts, Mohammed was a very careful observer, and in his trading expedi tions had been from his childhood con versant with both Jews and Christians, and so had great opportunity to ac quaint himself with their whole his tory, and so be able to select such poi tions of it as suited him. When Mohammed died his followers divided. One school followed his fath er-in-law, the Khalif Abubeker, and in addition to the Koran held to another law said to have been given by Mo hammed by oral tradition. This was rejected by the other sect or school, which followed Ali, a son-in-law of the Prophet. These two sects abuse and persecute each other just like Christ ians. The Koran is divided into 114 chap ters, nnder as many different headings, and is devoid of system, so that close attention i needed to 6ud out what it teaches. As might bo expected, as a reaction must precede a reformation, and as Christians had fought over the doctrine of the Trinity until the very existence of God had become a myth, so the Koran teaches a pure Deism God is God. It admits that Moses and Christ were prophets of God, but plac es Mohammed above them both. It denies that Christ was crucified, and as serts that God took Him unto Himself and put another man into His place. It is squarely opposed to all polytheism and idolatry. It holds very strongly to the doctrines of the resurrection, the judgment and perpetual rewards an punishments of men; but denies im mortality to women, asserting that they are only the earthly companions of men, for whom, if they are believers in the Prophet, he will furnish better- looking ones "in the good time com ing." It allows a man four wives, who are free women, and as many slaves for concubines as he chooses; but a slave cannot be reduced to concubinage by force. It denounces incest, forbids taking usury, eating pork, and drink ing wine or strong drink. It requires the rite of circumcision, and demands obedience to parents and kindness to the old, the orphan, and the poor. In our next article we will show the progress of Mohammedanism, and ac count for its rapid diffusion and long continuance. T. C. Various Matters. Scientific men In Japan are dimmssing the possibility of utilizing the internal heat of the earth. A St. Lows Jury decided that a drowned drunkard came to his death "while in a fit of voluntary insanity." The Rev. Frederick Stovener accuses the Rev. James Beard of stealing sermons from old books. Both are Indianapolis pastors. Every immigrant at Indianapolis is com pelled to show his or her arm to a medical ofllcial, and if it does not bear a vaccination mark, the operation is at once performed. The Cincinnati Times-Star: "Some of the citizens of Ironton, Mo., attended church last Sunday morning, but others, more world ly minded, turned out and lynched a negro." A saloon at Iron River, Mich., was demol ished with giant powder, not by total abstin- ance enemies, but by cinnKers who were displeased by the bad quality of the liquors sold. TnERE are more than 1,000 cats connected with the United States postal service, their especial duties being to distribute rats and vanquish mice that are prone to make mail- bags their habitat. Swarms of crickets are now ridding upon Sprsgue River Valley, Oregon, They destroy grain and vegetables where found, and un ceremouiously enter houses, Jump the din ner tabic, or crawl on the beds. A good farm in Indiana has been allowed to run to weeds for five years, because of a belief that it is nnder the curse of n former owner, whose ghost walks the fields at night, and would make it unpleasant for a ten ant. A recently arrived immigrant,fillcd with a commendable spirit of reform, has Just announced his willingness to become a can didate for the Presidency, agreeing to con duct the affairs of that office for $2G per year from each State. Two hundred refugees were saved during the bombardment of Alexandria in the Cath olic chapel by the Ingenuity of the Arab doorkeeper, who told the soldiers that the place was empty, and there was nothing to steal or he would have taken it himself. A marriage at Cobb, Wisconsin, was be tween a widow, aged seventy-two, and her adopted son, aged twenty-three. Her first husband had on his death-bed advised the match, as a means of preventing the raising of certain legal questions regarding his cs tate. TnERE is an American colony in Berlin, including two hundred native-born mem bers. About fifty of these are students at the university, at the Veterinary School and at the conservatories. There are also many German-Americans who belong rightly to the colony. The Rev. Sylvanus Hayward, who preach es in Globe, Mass., delares bluntly that the increase in divorce in that State Is not due to greater laxity in the laws, but to an enor mous increase of wickedness among tbe peo pie, and he holds that the remedy must be found in an improvement in their morals. Prof. Paul Bert, of France, has made experiments to determine the limit of safety in using chloroform. He found not only In chloroform, but in all anaesthetics except protoxide of nitrogen, that the death dose is exactly double that required to produce in sensibility when applied to dogs, sparrows and mice. Prof. Baoen Powell, an eminent scien tist, shows that the dangers of ballooning are exaggerated. In England there have been only six deaths in some 6,000 ascents, and four of these deaths were due to passengers jumping out or being thrown out of the car and coining Into collision witn some object in a violent wind. rmaw. email dose of Bailev's Saline Aperi ent will immediately cure sour or acid stomach, heartburn, ana sick Headache.

(Letter No. 3. Dark Corners, Iron Co., Aug. 5, 'S2. Mister EditurYoure xcellent paper caine to hand last week, containing my letter, and I think was read with much interest at Tho Corners." I desire to thank you fof ono thing, Mister Editur, aud that la for not abusing the Greenback party, like many of the little scrub editors of the country do. Tbe reason, as I take it, 1 you have gump tion enough to see that the Greenback-Labor party Is not so insignificant after all, and, ia faet, Is not to be grinned at by them that hs no teet h. ' "' '' ' Let me inform your mamj readers that mighty nigh everybody at "The Comers" are Grocnbackers (and, I might mention, are solid fur Unkle Jerry for the Legislator'). And, I take it, that your further reason for treating the Grecnbackers with the kindness that you do, is that you recognize the right of every American citizen to tldnk, speak, and vote Just as he pleases (asd to b a can didate, too, if be chooses to be). Now, I think this rurtnin' fur office is at least respectable. In faet, mighty nigh every voter in this county has either been a candi date fur office In his time or intends to be one some day. To make the matter short, Mister Editur, though not an office-seeker, I have at last yielded to the solicitations of my many friends to become a candidate fur the Legis latur'; and so you may, if you will, there fore announce my name tn the next Regis ter. (You will please excuse me fur not , sending the "V" this time, Mr. Akc, hot you shall have it just as soon as I get returns from the Committee. I look fur greenbacks to be more plenty In the country if I go to the Lcgislatur'). Before I consented to place myself at the bead of the Greenback ticket, I determined to take tbe old woman's advice and inquire around of the most pronriaent GreeubackerH (and Republicans) at The Corners" and elsewhere, to see what they thought of tho Greenback-Labor party electing their man this time, and, in the absence of any better man, how they thought I would do for tho standard-bearer. , . . ' I guess I might just as wefT left you, Mr. Editur, what they all said, and you will then see what good chances I have of elec tion. Well, the first nan I struek was my old friend Parson.Croeker. After talking a good bit about the crops, county potfties and the unfairness and corruption of five lata primaries, I told him that I had been solicit ed by a great number of friends to allow my name to be used by them as a candidate for tho Lcgislatur' on the Greenback - Labor ticket, and that before deciding I wanted hi advice. Ho told me that, the public had for a long time been looking for a suitabto man to combine upon, and that none' was so suitable as myself; said if he was iu my placo he'd run; thinks the Grecnbackers have tho only true theory of politics anyway, and that the Democrats will find a good many more of them than they think fur, when they get a leader; "and," said he, "tho Republicans will vote for you to a man and you'll be elected. Just put that in your hat I" Ho also informed me that his neighborhood would go solid for me. The next thing I did was to saddle old Roan and ride over to Belleview Valley and see my old fronds over there. Well, who should I first meet but my old-time friend, Wm. Bell. I went to business at once, and told him that I had been solicited to run fur .1 T i i.i . i , . i ; i .... i a t me ijcgisiniur' aiiu nuuia line uis douvs mi" vice; told him I would have no trouble iu carrying the county elsewhere hut there, and that If I could get an even "stand off there, I could be elected. Said he: "Untie, you know I liave always been your friend, and could not now advise vou to take a step so certain of defeat. Tom Foley baa been nominated. He was raised bere. He's a good fellow, and not a bit stingy. He'll bo elected." It seemed to me that he wanted to discourage mc, and so I left him. : ( I determined next to ece my friend Judge Hancock, of Pilot Knob, and ask his opinion. I bad a fat eow to sell and thought I could thus "kill t wo birds with one stone." I went straight to the. point and told him my busi ness. He said he was, no Greenbacker, but if he was be would support me; said he had gone into primaries and would of. course abide tbelr decision, as any eood Democrat would. He referred me to his old friend and mine, Peter Jaquitb; said he was a promi nent Republican, and I would better see him ; which I did at once. I told him my plans fur going to Jefferson; asked him if he and Mr. Peck, of Ironton, could secure me the Republican vote of the county. IIo merely shook his bead without a word, but 1 be- levo he'll vote for me. '. . I next went to Ironton, where I consulted jthe ever-hopeful, jovial and polite Captain Bradley. He assured me that the idea was a grand one, and would take with the people; said a good, sturdy farmer was just what we needed for the Legislator' one that couldn't be bought; said if I would only announce, I heed do nothing else; he would canvass tho countv for me, and would secure me every Republican vote iu the county. I saw many others who incouraged me in like manner. So now, Mr. Editor, don't you think my chances pretty good? Please pardon me for writing so long, and I will promise not to weary your readers next time. Please state that I will address the people at "The Corners," Autrast 9th, on the Issues of the Greenback-Labor party; and I invite the other candidates, and especially those for the Legislator', to be present. Verv truly yours, Unkle Jerry. p. s. Please send down your reporter the Register, and we'll have some cider. U.J.
