MYOMOTOR, JAN. 6, 1869*
We clip the above from the New York
Vindicator. In religion we have a most
amiable disposition to be non-committal.
Our practice is not such as would jubtify
an expression of partiality for any seet in
Christendom, but wo are religiously in
clined on general principles and therefore
have a right to refer to the subject. We
believe that "Ritualism''—another name
for written form of worship will be the
"fashion" in a very few years, and if
popular there will be no argument against
it. Show, pomp, fancy, _scenery, select
music, stained glass, written sermons—in
a word, SENSATION is rapidly making its
way into all churches and it is now too
late to stop the movement. Those who
fight form in religion gradually yield to
the invasion ofyld Simplicity's theological
territory, llell is not much preached now
a-days, nor are sinners or saints required
to kneel. A stand-up prayer is as good
as any. Singing, by the congregation,
has become an extended favor rather than
a right or duty purchased pews rule out
the very humble in the House of God
and style is the order of the day. He
who does not see it is either blind or af
fects to be so. Pictures, cn canvass, in
newspapers, in. carricature or in personal
representation at the altar, win, and the
clergy are net blind to the fact. We can
not help it.
HON. "COLORE*" MKNAKD.—This
tleman was elected to Congress from New
Orleans. His radical white brothers
referred his claim to the consideration of a
Committee. lie was not treated with
common courtesy by his radical peers. He
was not asked to "dine out" either by
Grant or Colfax. Mr. Menard is not good
natured. Gov. Warmouth gave him no
certificate of election he had the votes,
but his color didn't suit the "equality"
politician who mukes up the Executive of
Louisiana. The Congressman elect says
of Warmouth:
"lie is at the head of the most corrupt
ring in the country, composed of two
thirds of and unprincipled car*

et-baggers the carpet-baggers from
and in Congress, he says, edge
away the moment they see me in their
neighborhood. He resolved cever to go
in upon the floor again until he went to
take possession of his seat. To a reporter
he said, I walked in on the floor feeling
that I had a right to do so, and a good
deal better rightthan these carpet-baggcry,
Newsham and Sypher, from Louisiana,
elected by colored votes in the places of
better men. I know these carpet-baggers
so well, and I know how ready they were
to shake hands with me, and poorer color
ed men, when they were down in Louisia
na, looking for office."
JUT. DAVIS AND THE INDIANS.—Speak
ing of the usage of a bill transferring
the Indians to the war department, the
National Intelligencer says
"Whether the bill passed by the house
yesterday by such a large vote is wise or
not, time will show. If passed by the
senate, it will be read with a grim satis
faction by a tall, military-looking gentle
man now beyond the seas. The person
we refer to is Mr. Jefferson Davis he who
figured not long since conspicuously at
Richmond, Montgomery, and other places.
The plan of transferring the Indians to
the war department, taking the whole
matter from civilians and giving it to the
uriny, originated with Mr. Davis, and was
always one of his pet projects, on which
he most earnestly insisted. This tribute
to his judgment, however tardy, will
hardly tail to be appreciated, and the fact
that it comes from those not over ard
above friendly to him, make« it all the
more a graceful and handsome proceeding.
The amount of lumber sawed in this
lumber district, composed of Chippewa

lifty million feet which netted on the
urerage $13 per thousand, footing up in
the whole $650,000. Shingles manufact

condCff^ed liy the Judicial Committee of

ever, will hardly put a stop to the con
demned practices. The Ritualists are de
termined to go on, and neither Kclcsiasti
cal nor civil court* are likely to prevent
them. It is not quite clear where the
Ritualists propose to bring up. Their
organ in England, The Church Times,
declared that Protestanism is "a compact
of lies, misrepresentations and mibtaltos
it has everywhere failed every one with
the smallest pretensions to culture or in
tellectual acutencss has grown ashamed of
it it has made half Europe infidel, and
has converted the heathen.'' Catholicism
is worse, if anything, and the Times de
clares that the eecession of the Ritualists
to Rome would be bad for both England
a«d Rome. It would leave England simp
ly ProstCBtant, und prevent the reform
which Rome needs as much as England.
This is the way the organ of the Ritualists
in England talks, and a curious way it is.
Meanwhile, the "new idea" makes rapid
progress in both England and the United
States, and in this country it has already
set a good many hammers at work on
theological anvils.

These nrf truly evil days! Crime, and
fraud, and peculation are permitted with
indifference. The government seems to
have fallen into a combination of "rings."
We have a Kailroad "Ring," which has
made a contract with the government out
of which its leaders amass enormous for
tunes We have a National Bank "Ring,"
in which we see broken banks do a nom
inal business, and netting large profits eut
of a reconstruction of the Banking law.
We have land "Rings"—combinations to
seise upon large tracts of territory under
pretext of Indian treaties, and (o take
possession of them by a virtual act of
legislative confiscation. Then we have an
Indian "Ring." This is tho most terrible
of all. The railroad, and land, and whis
ky thieves confine themselves to the mere
acquirement of money by defrauding the
Treasury, but the leaders of the Indian
"ring" speculate in the blood of men,
upon the honor of their government, upon
rapine, massacre and shame! General
Sheridan is to-day carrying an army
down into the heart of the Indian coun
try simply to protect the white people
from the results of the rapacity and per
fidy of the government agents.
And so we go .'—fraud in the service of
the government, among men in high
station. among the agents of the revenues,
Custom House officers, excisemen, and,
over all, an administration which appears
to give a tacit assent to these manifold
crimes.

DEAR SIR:—It is with much pleasure
that I say to you that I consider the PLAN
TATION BITTERS
of uutold value. In the
fall of 1867 I was taken with Chills and
Fever, with thc most sever pains in my
chest and head. It was with great dif
ficulty that I could breathe. My lungs
were greatly distressed, and there was
severe pain in ray right side, by spells. I
could hardly get up from my bed, I called
a Doctor, who attended me all winter
without thc least benefit. About thc first
of August I commenced using your PLAN
TATION BITTERS—a
wine-glass full three
times a day—and have used it niest of the
time since, and I am now well anu strong,
able to do ray own work and the care of a
large family. Yours, &c.,
SUSAN WILSON.

This Machine is in this Scientific Nineteenth Century
what the Railway and the Telegraph is in Locomotion
and the transmission of Thought—The Great Desid*
eratum in Sewing. The Simplicity, Ease and Cer

cellence of its work throughout the entire range of Sew
ing—Stitching, Hemming, Felling, Tucking, Cording,
Braiding, Quilting, Gathering, Sewing and Over-seaming,
Embroidering on the edge and its beautiful Button-hole
and Eylet-liole work, places it unquestionably FAR IN
ADVANCE of any similar invention. -Don't purchase
without Examining it.
