THE NEWS,
The Great Northwestern Fair was for
mally opened yesterday in a manner, and
under auspices which more than answered
the highest expectations of its friends. TVe
surrender a large share of our space to
details of the opening exercises, and inci
dents which engrossed the principal share
of public attention yesterday. Altogether
the ocra&ion promises to yield a noble
tribute from loyal men and women at
home to our noble soldiers in the field.
The great fair is now open. Let its cof
fers be filled liberally.
A great scare ‘is on Dixie, and the skel
eton that has always been in their house,
is loose with all its terrors. All Georgia
is convulsed with fright at the reported
discovery of an extensive insurrectionary
scheme among the blacks.
The news from Charleston indicates no
change in situation or positions. The
rebel rumors are not, from their own stand
point, encouraging.
Henry Ward Beecher has spoken at Liv
erpool, and to the delight and edification
of our British cousins, who arc getting
rapidly on the right side in sympathy.
The war in Virginia yields no particu
lar returns other than contradictory dis
patches and unreliable rumors. We can
not believe that any very stirring event is
to take idace in that field for some tlmo to
come.

The revised Charter of the city of Chicago
contains the following provision: “And
■whenever at any election it shall appear
that there have been more than sis hun
dred votes polled in any election precinct,
it is hereby made the duty of the Common
•Council at least two months before the
recurrence of another election, to divide
such precinct into two or more districts,
and appoint places lor holding elections
therein.” To guard against political knav
eiy, the Legislature provided that the
changes in election districts should he
mode “at least two months before an
election.” The wisdom of this is apparent
to every one; for a corrupt majority in
the Common Council should not he al
lowed to take snap judgementnpon voters,
and change election districts and voting
places upon the eve of an important elec
tion, and place the polls in places which
their political Inends alone arc notified
of. Disregarding the plain language of the
Charter, and the rights of voters, the Com
mon Council last evening, barely one
week before the election, carved the wards
of the city into election districts, and fined
voting places to suit their portizan purpo
ses ; and we have no surety that they will
not change them again before election,
for if they may change them one week
before, they may one day, or one hour
belore.
In either case the time is not sufficient
for the people to become familiar -with
the subdivisions of the wards, and leam as
to the voting places. The people must
expect just such frauds as these from the
secesh party now in power; they are
driving their partisan measures with a
high hand, and will shrink at nothing to
further their schemes. Let honest citizens
search out the polls on election day, and
circumvent theifr designs.
The Traitor Letcher.
Mr. Harvey Birch, a refugee from Bleb*
mend, notices the case cf Mr. Fitzgerald, a
high-toned, educated gentleman, once class*
mate of Governor Letcher, and a teacher in
various parts of the South, imprisoned In
Richmond for his devotedloyalty. Mr. Birch
fays that be was the foe sindU of President
Lincoln. The following letter, which he re
ceived fiom Governor Letcher, will explain
itself:
Execcttve DETAmtrsr. )
Bic&xoxs, June 25,1661. f
Mr. William Piugcrald;
Sin—l was aware before the receipt of your
letter yesterday that yon were still in prison,
and I can assure yon that it shall be no fault
of mine if yon do not remain there during
your natural life. When I promised to inter
cede with the military authorities in your be
half, I believed your assurance that the sus
picions against you were without foundation;
but on calling on Gen. Winder 1 found that
it bad been reported to him, by a gentleman
of undoubted loyalty and veracity, that you
have been for years an enemy and tiilfier of
Southern institutions.
In 1656 you voted for the Abolitionist, Fre
mont. for President. Ever since the war von
liavo maintained a sullen silence in regard to
its merits. Tour son—who in common with
other young men, was colled to the defence
of his country—has escaped to the enemy,
probably by your advice. This is evidence
enough to eat iefy me that yon are a traitor to
your country, »nd I regret that it is not suf
ficient to Justify me in demanding yon from
the military authorities to be tried and execu
ted lor your treason.
Tours, Jons Letcher.

hxw Yoke, Oct. 27th.—The Macomb, Ga.,
Confederacy, of the 14th, says, the reported in
surrection of blacks in Hancock county seems
to have been more serious than was at first
supposed. Quite a large number oi negroes
arc implicated. Their organization was com
plete and officers chosen from of Major
General down to Corporal. The chief of the
the conspiracy is an artful and intelligent fel
low, who wss well qualified to be leader of
such a dangerous enterprise.
He was the Major General of the forces,and
proceeded to Atlanta on business connected
with the plot The plan was laid to Join Rose
crans when he arrived at and captured Atlan
ta. To lids they were put up by designing
ra&cals’from Liuooludom, who are now infest

LEAVEKwocrn, Kansas, Oct. 27, ISgS.
X have news from Fort Scott to Monday
noon. Affairs below look threatening. Coop
er has been reinforced from Price’s army with
infantry and artillery, and menaces Fort Slant
and Fort Smith. His force is stated at 9,000
men, mostly whites, and eighteen pieces of
fcrtnieiy,
Qoautrell is with him.
Gen. Blunt goes South with the train. He
will confer at Ft Smith with Gen. McNeil, and
after turning the command over, will proceed
io Leavenworth, under the recent order.
Gens. McNeQ and Ewing are in the vicinity
< f Bcntonville and Huntsville, In Northern
Arkansas.
Brooks, with 3.000 men, is entrenching on
■White Elver, near Huntsville, and has been
reinforced by Shelby, who has escaped with
nearly 200 men and two guns.
Gen. Blunt’s presence on the Arkansas is
absolutely necessary. Daring his absence the
country has been £ warming with bushwhack
ers, who ent off email parties, and have re-en
tered very near those posts which arc inde
pendent commands, and do not act in con
cert. The General has fully recovered
his health which was greatly Impaired. The
train is escorted byalargc and competent force
of infantry,cavalry and artillery, and no fears
need be entertained concerning its safety. li
necersary, Gen. Blunt will offer Cooper a bat*
tie. He is confident of his ability to clean
Cooper out ci the country.
The route which the train will take is still
undecided. The poet at Baxter Springs
where the recent massacre occurred, has been
abandoned. It was of no Importance except
as an express station.
Gen. Lane addressed an immense meeting
at Fort Scott, Saturday. After the speech the
crowd proceeded to Gen. Slant's quarters
and called him out. After repeated appeals
he came out and addressed them briefly. His
appearance caused great sensation. When he
bade them farewell as their military comman
der, many shed tears. His removal has crea
ted an excitement unparalleled in Kansas af
fairs.
A train ol supplies for Gen. Ewing's com
mand, has left Fort Scott.
There has been no disturbance of the ex
press between here and Ft. Gibson for the
last ten days.
FROM WASHINGTON.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Washington, Oct. 57,18C8.
The special agent of the War Department
has discovered enormous frauds, estimated by
millions, in Kentucky and Ohio, in contracts
for all sorts of array supplies.
With acts of Congress at its hack, the War
Department is preparing to visit the guilty
with condign punishment-
A meeting ■was held to-night of Pennsylva
nians to consider the case of arrest of William
eon. It was largely attended, indignant
speeches made, and a committee formed to
draw up a statement of facts. He was arrest
ed hy Bohr, on a charge of pocketing aad
e tiling government property, when the facts
were that he sold useless property of an asso
ciation and put the avails to its credit.
Government has received testimony from
Platt and Clay counties, Mo., showing the
doings of Col. James H. Moss, acting under
Gambled orders in enrolling mUtia. Moss said
he diiPnt want Union men hut would arm the
citizens, if it took ten thousand men to do it*
He wanted secessionists to drive bushwhack
ers. The citizens further say that the Mis
souri militia are two-thirds in sympathy
with the rebellion, some of them having
fought for it. The Union mea are driven to
Kansas for safety.
The 12th Ohio battery and some other
Western batteries procured orders to day au
thorizing their transfer from Camp Barry here,
to the army of the Cumberland. Capt. Jbhn-
Eton, of Fayette county, has command.
We are without definite .reports from the
Army of the Potomac to-day. The enemy
have crossed a column cf Infantry at Kappa
hannock Station, and arc in some force at
Stafford Court House. Firing was heard to
ward Centrerille to-day, hut was probably
only a guerilla skirmish. In a cavalry skir
mish we were worsted.
The pressure against Dahlgren’s continu
once in command at Charleston has not
ceased. On Sunday last a number of military
men from Morris Island called on the Presi
dent to urge his removal on military grounds.
What result attended their efforts has not
transpired. H lb ascertained, on high author
ity, that the question of his removal has
never been a subject of consideration by the
Executive.
At the Karr Department H is affirmed that
the Admiral's performance, bo Ikr as Charles-
toaie concerned, has been satisfactory to the
Secretary of the Navy. It la denied that any
arrangement was ever eftered Into between
him pud Gca. Gilmore, by which
was to do the work of the siege np to*a cer
tain point, and to be then completed by the
former.
The question now is whether an attack by
the navy eh&U be mode by which the
iron clads may be pushed up to Charleston
in the face of the batterie*, and whether
Older® to that effect should bejiasaed. What
ever course may be decided on, it seems alto*
gether probable that no change, for the pres
ent, in the naval force before Charleston will
he made.
Letters were received here thU evening,
from newspaper correspondents lately In Lib
by prlioc. They have been removed to Cas
tie Thunder.
Letters from Nashville represent negro en
listment os prospering, hut complain of Got
Johnson's'action in the premises.
All the reports of rapid movement in the
Army of the Potomac betokening speedy en
gagement arc false,osdd&tfciled accounts given
otJUitignificant skirmishes with view of having
them corfcideied important as the forerunner
of a great battle are sensational.
Saturday’s skirmish waa a small affair and
baa been greatly exaggerated.
-The rebel cavalry pickets arc still thrown
out this side of the Rappahannock, and it is he.
lieved they Intended resisting our reconstruc
tion of the bridge over tho Rappahan
nock.
The movements of our army, of course, is
wholly shaped with reference to the protec
tion of workicgpartics on railroads.

The Provost Marshal’s office indicates that
volunteering under the President's recent
call, is beginning well; better, indeed, than
had been expected.
Gen. Kosecrans’ remarks at Cincinnati pro
duced a decided sensation here.. The friends
cf the Administration admit that his state*
ments render some farther explanation of (he
causes for his removal necessary, and at the
sane time leave him in an nnsatisCictoiy pe
tition.
Washington, Oct. 27.—The new Mexican
Minister, Senor Romero, representing the
Juarez Government, to-day officially advised
the Stale Department of his arrival In Wash
irgton.
Arrangements are being made for paying
our armies lor the two mouths ending with.
November. Twenty-five millions are re
quired for this purpose. The Paymasters’
rolls may not, however, be prepared before
the middle of that mouth.
Heavy cannonading was heard at Gaines
viL'e to-dny for more than two hours, up to
noon in the direction ofßealton, which Is
nve miles from Rappahannock Station. At
7 o’clock this afternoon the 2d army corps
started out cn a rcconnoissaace in that neigh
borhood, where they may have encountered
the enemy.
Last night between 8 and 9 o’clock, ten
or twelve teams belonging to the reserved
orillleiy were captured by some 150 guerillas
when two miles from Warrenton,
Washington, Oct, 27.—Advices from tho
front substantiate the belief that the rebels
l ave no desire to lightens this side of the
Bapidan. There have been a few skirmishes
between cavalry, in which small portions of
infantry participated, but our Hues now ex
tend to the Rappahannock, and the army is
quietly resting in camp.
“There have been rumors here of fighting
pcirg on at the front all day yesterday, but
officers who left Gainesville at noon report all
quiet. The military authorities have no in
formation of any engagements beyond mere
picket skirmishing, and are confident that
there is no very formidable infantry force of
the enemy on the Rappahannock, and believe
that the Army of the Potomic will be abund
antly able to crush completely what may be
left of Lee’s army, whenever a general en
gagement son be brought on.
On Saturday Lieut. Boyce, Sth New York
cavalry, stationed at Thoroughfare Gap, rode
out in the direction of Aldle' for the purpose
of ascertaining whether any ofMosby’s guer
illas were in the vicinity, the Infantry pickets
havlcg been withdrawn. Taking but one
man with him, he proceeded with great cau
tion until he came upon a party of cav
alry dressed in our uniform, and number
irg about a dozen, whom he supposed to he
our men. Upon riding up they surrounded
him and ordered him to deliver up his arms.
Handing over his sword and revolver, he
rode with them until they came in sight of
another party, when the Lieutenant drew his
revolver from his hoot, shot three of the
guerillas, and with his orderly escaped. Tne
guerillas fired on him, wounding him in five
places, but not mortally.
Washington, Oct. 27.— The Star of this
city says, no information has been received
there, indicating that the two hostile armies
cn the Rappahannock have come into col
lision again, that la, since Saturday last. It
turns out that the importance of the cavalry
fight on that day, on this side, has been great
ly magnified. Is is the belief of nearly all
military men here, that a considerable portion
of Lee’s army has crossed into Farquhar, as
alleged, and his act oflayieg pontoons across
the river, in the vicinity of Rappahannock
Station, was intended to facilitate the retreat,
when pressed, of a portion of his cavalry, and
the inconsiderable portion of infantry. He
had remained north of the stream to support
the cavalry.
FROM SOUTHERN ILLINOIS.
Arrest of Deserters-Tragic
Events.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
CAmo, Oct. 97.
Last night Mr. J. Evans, one of Provost
Man-hoi Phillips' assistants, went out In Wil
liamson county about 15 miles from Carbon
dale to arrest a number of deserters. He
went first to the house of Richard Moulton*
to take his brother WlßiamMoulton, who de
serted from the Uth Blinds, having previous
ly been a member of the 109tb. When he ar
rived at the house, he demanded admittance,
and was denied. Finally Richard Moulton
came to the door and demanded to know what
was wanted. Evans made knows his busi
ness and asked if William Moulton
was within; an answer in theaffinnative was
returned. The door was finally opened, and
Evens saw Wm. Moulton, the deserter, aim
ing his rifle at him. Happily the cap did not
explode, and Evans life was saved. Putting
down the gun, Monlton was about reaching
nnder the head of his bed for a pistol, when,
in self-defence, Evans drew his revolver and
shot him through the bowels, causing a
wound from which it is supposed he cannot
recover. This was at ten at night. Mr.
Evans at once entered the house and aided in
dressing Mr. Moulton's wound. The deserter
acknowledged he had intended kiUlng Evans
or any one ol the arresting posse. Then he
would have been willing to die.
Even the brother of the wounded man sold
that Evans had done no more than was his
duty. Moulton is probably dead ere this. He
had boasted that he would never be taken.
He deserted while before Vicksburg- After
this occurrence Evans and his party, reduced
to three men, went in tie same neighbor
hood to arrest some deserters known to be
at the house of Dr. Chambers.
While parlylng for entrance to the house,
one deserter, named Jas. MagUn, started out
and ran, and Evans and assistants after him.
He was several times ordered to halt, hut
did not do so. Pistols were then fired, aimed
over his head. This tailing, he was shot in
the back and mortally wounded, while run
ning across a meadow. While this was going
on, the remaining four deserters congregated
in the house escape. This Dr.
Chambers 1 house is said to he a regular ren
dezvous for deserters. Our Provost Marshal,
J. N. Phillips, is doing all he can to return as
many as possible out of 800 deserters,
known to be harbored in Williamson county,
but It wlllbe Impossible for him to do so un
less the authorities furnish him a squad of
cavalry for protection. Unless this be done
immediately, copperheads and deserters will
finish what they have already begun, and
drive every Union man out of the county.
Many good and loyal citizens have not
slept at home on beds for weeks, fearing at
tacks from roving bands of deserters. Per
haps, after the lives of the Provost Marshal
and his assistants may have been sacrificed,
some one may wake up to the necessity of
sctlig our officers properly supported in the
perfonnance of their dnty.

The Assembly chamber waa thronged to

vincing argument by Matt. H. Carpenter, of
Milwaukee, addressed to Democrats chiefly,
and urging them to rally to an earnest and
hearty support of the Administration.
He reviewed briefly the history ot the coun
try, in connection wilh the conflict between
the North and South, showing how the South
waa wholly responsible tor this war, and vin

Failure of the Rebel Torpedoes,
The Charleston City Author
ities Want to Surrender.
Boston. Oct. 27.—A Mortis Island letter to
ihaUerala says tiro deserters from Charleston
give a gloomy account of affairs at Charleston
and Savannah. In the latter the poor are
starving. They state that the torpedoes la
Charleston harbor won't work. When the
Ironsides was last in, she was over one con
taining 20U pounds of powder, which failed to
explode.
’ihe rebels have two more Infernal machines,
Intended to destroy the Ironsides. Some ot
the haihor obstructions of ropes and barrels
have rotted, and are seen every few days
flooring ont to sea.
We are aseured that the Charleston city gov
eameiitare acxlous to surrender the city,but
Beauregard and the military leaders won't al
low It, and say they will hum the city first.
The entire rebel force is etatedat 13,003.
Most of Beauregard’s forces went to reinforce
Bragg.
A new sand-battery has been erected in the
ruins of Sumter.
LATER FROM EUROPE.
Henry Ward Beecher at Liverpool.
Cape Race, Oct. 20.— The following is ad
ditional by the Canada;
Cheat Britain.—Rev. H. W. Beecher de
livered his promised lecture on America at
Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool, on the loth,
before a densely crowded audience. Fears at
one jime were entertained of a riot, Southern
sympathizers having placarded the town with
bills calculated to inflame the public mind
against Mr. Beecher.
A large number of secessionists were at the
meeting, and did all they could to get up a
rew and interrupt Mr. Beecher. They were,
however, in a great minority, and, on the
whole, Mr. Beecher's reception was enthusi
astic. He was frequently interrupted by di*.
gracdul outcries, but showed great calmness
andttactt t and could not be put down by
clamor.
Hr. S. showed how much England was in*
tere&tcd in tie triumph of tie North. Hr.
B.■believed that under the Influence of Eirl
Russell's speech, at Blair, and tie sei
zure of the suspected rams In the Mersey,
tie hostility ofthe North towards England
would disappear.
He concluded by pointing out that in view
ofthe threatening aspect of affairs through
out the world, kindred nations like England
and America should not be estranged, far
united they would be a match for the world.
A yotc of thanks to Mr. Beecher was curried
with great cheering but not unmlxed with
hisses and groans.
Sir Randall Palmer, Attorney General, had
been addressing his constituents at consider
able length, on American affairs. He sho wed
that England could not recognize the South
until their independence was folly settled.
He contended that England was bound to ex*
tend belligerent rights to the ConfederAoe,

GABRKTT BIBLICAL INSTITUTE.
Seventh Anniversary Introductory
Exercises;
rznsT DAT.
The seventh annual introductory and supple
mentary exercises were commenced at Evanston,
on Sunday, the 25th, with a sermon in the mom*
log by Bishop Simpson, on the Duties and Respon
sibilities of tbe Ministiy, and in the evening a ser
mon by Rev. 0. H. Tiffany, D.D., upon tbo Neces
sity of Mental Culture and Scholarly Attainments
in tbo proper discharge of the duties and obliga
tions of the ministry.
BISHOP SIMPSON'S SERMON.
The sermon of Bishop Simpson was a very able
one, abounding In practical sense and wisdom.
Bis text wasl Tim., iv, 13—16:
Let so men despise thy youth; bat bo thoa as
example of the believers. In word, is conversa
tion. In charity, in spirit, in faith, in parity.
Till I come, give attendance to reading, to ex
hortation, to doctrine.
Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was
given tbcc by prophecy, with the laying on of tho
hands of the presbytery.
Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly
to them, that thy profiting may appear onto all.
Take heed unto thyself, and onto the doctrine:
continne in them: for m doing this thoa shale
both save thyself and them that hear thee.
The sermon Is to be published complete. Wc
will not, therefore, mar Its beauty by aa attempt
ed synopsis.
DR. TUT ANT’S SBRBOH.
In the evening, Rev. O. H. TiHhny, D.D., deliv
ered a very able sermon. Hia text was from Mat,,
zlii, 52.
Then eald ho onto them, Therefore every Scribe
which is instructed onto the kingdom of heaven,
ia like unto a man that la an householder, which
bringeth forth oat of hie treasure things new end
old. ....
Methodism originated and grow oat of the labors
of one of the ripest scholars of England. The
work the church has had to do, not leas than the
circumstances formerly surrounding herminlstcra.
precluded, in other days, that degree of mental
culture which has since become an Imperative
duty. To retain and educate those begotten of
her labors onto a lively hope, she had to make
proof of her competence and ability. Sach a step,
thongh manifestly necessary, was to a considerable
extent unpopular. Erroneous opinions of the re
form contemplated were too commonly held, pre
judices against human (intervention In the preach
er's work were too deeply seated, and tho fear of
giving room to a merely worldly ministry, too
Jealously hcldby the church to be done away with
out a careful examination of the proposed- new
measnres.
A chief difficulty In the popular mind arose from
the corruption or the Idea that “ God qualifies
those whom Be calls.” Perhaps the root of the
error is to be found In tho etrangerldca that is too
commonly attached to the office and work of a
preacher. 'We often ignore the fact that God calls
Bomemtn to be lawyers, some to be physicians,
&c , as certainly as be calls some to be preachers,
though the mode and authority of the call may
bo ctfferent. Now If God qualifies because He
calls, or dalle because Be bas qualified, the fact
of qualification may be inferred from the fact
O f call. Yet tlie strongest opponent of dehy
•teat tpeclal preparation be made for prea:a
jrp, will not Intrust his affairs to any bat a
vtU read lawyer, or his health toan tmiantrucled
pbjticiMj.and thoreuionableaee* of bin rcfasil to
coso isappaicLttoall. The history of preichire
ai d of churches piovcs the error of the popalir
ration upon this subject. Churches oft«n s*nd
oat young men s«nm*isterß, believing them to be
chaily cadi d of God, who are not willing to adopt
them as pastors, whereas, if the call conveyed the
qualification, they ooght to be willing to receive
uem.
These differ!tics hare beea ioe*cased by the in
terpretation of facts in the early history of toe
cirnuh. It is clearly manifest teal God worked
v ordoifally by menus ot men who did not pojssa
the applifluci sof culture, usd who w<rrf not deep
ly read. The error do;s not cocslsi iatheadnls
fcion of this feet, but la falilcg to cllow for the
cbangeewhichhavctahenplaceia the character
tnd condition of soclrty. Labors acd sermons
which in the early history of Methodism were In*
stn>n>rntal In thecoitVcreiou or scores, would not
now be' etdored by our congregations, evea If
thciewi te the same zeal ard fervor In the previh
er as there Is the same power in bis theme,and the
it a&on is that the hearers have outgrown such Im*
putslore.imd mnet be operated on by other means, •
Again, this error is fostered by forgetting that
the men by whom God wrought so wonderfully in
our fathers'time, were men of intellect—strong,
robust thinkers. As scholars, they may sot com*
Ssro with masyof their successors,yet in mental ea*
oomenta and discipline they may bare been as far
inaovanceof the people they addressed, as is the
ministry of the present day. It bm? been a great
p'Bitlcnl effort of recent tfoes to propose to bo
content with preachers who had no more scholar*
ship than tbeir fathers, while the people have ad
vanced in culture.
rrcbaWy bo few Blroplo wortli.Achlcli really ora
cody a tmtb, have been more grossly perverted. or
madetbepetasion of moreharautbuQthe satlnc
of John Wesley, “that gaining knowledge la a
good thing, but paving souls !a better.** Men bare
come tomakc it a plea for absolute Ignorance, and
au apology for wilful stupidity. It is used as
though the two things were antagonistic,and in
themselves incompatible; as though a man coo'd
not, and ought jot, to make the, acquisition of
knowledge a help, a means, for saving souls; and
as though the whole life. aodaUth* labors of John
IVeshynimeelfhadnot been a protest agaln&tthc
attempted divorce.
Any one who will enumerate the themes a
preacher mutt first etedyand then publicly pre
sent; who will mark ttu ir variety.and who, in ad
dition to this, will consider the character of the
audience he addresses, together with the respon
sibility order the pressure of which all bis work
must re done, will need no argument to convince
him oftherecesMty for deep and close study to
accomplish the labor and mett the responsibility.
We do tot distinguish in this country between the
theologian and the preacher ;■ between the
man who analyzes. di-stets, evolves,
acd determines principles and truths,
and the mnu who presents these truths to
the people when established Wo have no dis
tinct class who work in the study, the laboratory of
thought, as separate from those who labor in the
pulpit and the pastoral office. Our church and
age demand that our tbeo’ogiana shall be preach
ers, and our preachers theologians. Take the
mere outlines of the themes which a preacher,
under this arrangement, must necessarily exam
ine. in order to sec the extent anddifflcnlty of the
Held. The range of such teacher* must embrace
—God, man. and the relations between them:
God must be presented as he has revealed himself
to ns; Bis works and His word most be studied.
Philosophy and philology are necessary fields.
Scfenccmurt unfold her laws, and language yield
her treasures. Criticism must impale error,
and labor must develop truth. The critical
study of the Bible is not only indispensable
to its true comprehending, but it is a work of
great labor, because all Us truths, though pub*
liebed centuries ago, have au application to each
succeeding ago; find tbclr interpretation in his
tories ard lives as widely different In charactsr
from those to whom they were addressed, as these
periods of action arc distant. St<,that to the cud
of time, under all circumstance*, in all lands,
every Scribe who is instructed unto the king
dom of heaven must be like unto a man whole an
householder, who bringeth forth out of his treas
ure things ti€tv as well as old.’* ; -
Ur on these points the pro chcr elaborated with
much power and eloquence, but we have not room
to follow him.
