Although to most reflecting minds moments
«rdoubt will come ns to whether Hie world has
nr Creator, yet these moments are very few In
the lives of most persons. And these times are
1 10 much moments os rapid Instants, such
m that division of the pcudulum-bcnt which
•boa* a flask of lightning. There nrn luvolun-
Urr slates of mind which coma ot unexpected
moments to hold us by n strange spell. Many
Ktious when standing on somo pinnacle of
rock or tcmulo feel suddenly some voice within
mb'?* “Cast thyself headlong,” mid the foot
iteps back Horn a feeling of sudden
helplessness. Many, not upon any such
Halit, when in peace nt home, ex
stticuce the Btinngo feeling of tho sui
cide- Anil so Instants will como when one
doubt* his sanity, and oven doubts Ida real ex
ineace. Tims there are few reflecting minds to
whom moments of Inyolumory atticism will not
ipscar suddenly. AH the proof of God sud
denly falls, and, as upon a precipice the foot
Heps buck under the awful soell ufsolf-dcstruc
tlon, to at times the belief In a God falls, and
then the heart shrinks with the chill of a com
lo.'ianilillaliun. -After one has estimated nil
these instants of blackness ono will easily see
that they ore but n small port ol the whole life
time: and, like lightning-flushes, make up but a
imall part of the long summer of life. In tnc
coat days, and months, midyears of most per
un« God Is ever around to receive reproach for

vbldi associates an Intelligent cause with an In
telligent effect. Religion Is not simply the re
mit of an Instinct, but also of a formal argu
ment. which leads tlio mind from n design Inev
lublv to Infer a designer. While wc are all
tight la denominating religion ns a sentiment,
;tt U Is not wholly au appetite like that of hun

Inevitably infers that some mind made all this
eitemal world.
Hie effort was made mnnv hundreds of years
ijo to deduce tho universe from spontaneous
acdoo of matter, but all these many centuries
unco that effort have been able to tlud but few
lirocatcs of the theory, in a very hastv sur
vey ol the uulvme one might tlud a delicate
support for the thought that the worlds were
made by star-dust rolling Itself together bv a*
traction, but the moment one moves away from
time generalities mid passes Into the details of
earth, or of man, or roan’s mind and heart, or
tuto the details of any cart of the natural world,
the idea that the universe was-mnUo by chem
istry, or Came by chance, all goes to nothing
ness. A single song-bird, a single laughing
thilu, the speech, or eloquence, or poetry of
manhood, the beauty of woman, como In to re

Inexplicable spells of simplicity and credulity.

An American, who had suddenly become rich
•enough to travel, and who must needs see for
eign lauds, took the Haln from London out to
Manchester. It so happened Mmtbe sat with a
dry. rmd witty, and mischievous orlcst, who soon
found tlmitUo American was out to see the.
great points, and things, und monuments of
earth. To gratify this thirst the “Father” Ho
gan very soon to point out remarkable things to
the eager eves from America. The train passed
in rapid succession the houses of Shakspearc,
mid Burns, and Walter Scott, the tomb of Chat
, mcra, ami the cenotaphs of Washington, and
Crcsar, and Cicero, and In Mint 100 miles the
same train swept majestically through the battle-
Helds of William of Orange, ami oven Mm
Waterloo of Napolcun. When Mm delighted
traveler called upon u friend in Manchester and
confessed Mint he had seen more In six hours
than he hart thought to sea la three moot h.«, and
began his spccitlcotlons of Joy and delight, ho
was Informed that he must have traveled with
some good old Father of wiuq and Jokes.
Without meaning anything disrespectful to
the science ol limit evolution, 1 must sav that
sometimes, after reading those pages which ex
tract our universe from slime and ooze, I put
aside the volume in a form of anger, and feel
that men are around who are playing off their
tricks upon me, a poor traveler through the
world! The meu have come back who wish me
to see tho earth on the back of a tortoise, and
the tortoise swimming hi a sou. U’ntlo wo are
all very gullible, yet 1 do not wish to see the
fluid of' Waterloo between Loudon and Manches
ter If I can possible avoid the sight.
Regarding the universe, let us nil stand (Irmly
upon that principle of logic that intellect In a
result must Indicate intellect In the cause: and
let us not fear the credulity of one who holds to
this principle so much ns the one who rejects It.
In assuming that the liberal Christian is quo
who will believe anything told him bv pastor or
I’ope, let us rather conclude Unit ono who can
make this world out of lusciisnto forces, out of
itfanimuie eieuients, surpasses the religious soul
hi the power of believing the strange and the
Tlio civilized lands nrc, In these late years,
very full ol charity toward nil forms of opinion.
It Is widely admitted that man Is not to bo behl
responsible fur his forms of political or religious
belief. Wnlle the world should be full of this
form of toleration, yet an honest belief should
not be accorded to any one who Ims been too In
dolent to make a survey of the ease before him.
or who has been too prejudiced to make a broad
and fair survey, it Is not certainly a duty of
charity that It should tell a youth who has
never given the universe one hour of thought,
and who has wasted his days and years over
games nnd perhaps in vices, that ho Is entitled
to his opinion that there is no God or second
life; that one cannot holt) his belief. It Is only
an honest belief wo cun dare excuse; and no
Oclleffs honest If It has omitted those labors
of mind and that openness of heart which
can alone help nnm to nn excusable creed. It
must be remembered that all the bigots and
tools In Mie whole history of man have defend
ed themselves bv saying. “These are my senti
ments.” The man who made a sncrlilec re
cently of his little daughter can plead also that
such were his views. Alter the massacre of Mm
COJXW I’rotcslauls public thanks were ordered
In the Church fur such a riddance from borcticx.
The words “Such are our Idea I *,” have made all
the pages of history blush with blood. Au aw
ful question should rise up before us. namely,
What right hud these Demons to such eeuti
tnentsf Had (hey becu patient students of
both sides! Had they pondered long and care
fully and without prejudice upon the whole
and the details of all the Immense easel Or
had their opinions been born in old passion,
and nursed In narrowness and Idleness!
When in Franco the rabble hurried to prison
certain Bishops und priests ns being guilty of
paying homage to a personage whom theyeallcd
“God,” Unit bloody mob (or the most part had
drawn their own atheism from the ilfc-long pur
suit of pleasure and vice, and called those Ideas
honest und noble which had been found aud
reared In the midst of all licentiousness.
There are men who move around our cities
telling the multitudes that the earth owes them
u living, that they are all entiled to food, mid
clothes, mid shelter. And so each man Is enti
tled to food nml clothing, but only so fur as lie
Bhallfaithfully work for them. Not very dis
similar are many of Mieso who arc busv declar
ing that they are entitled to their own form of
belief. If you think there Is a God, worship
Him, nnd as for me 1 shall follow my thought.
But 11 Is with opinion us with food and domes,
one must work hard and patiently fur his senti
ments before ho mnv display them as honest. A
iiiuu loud In hU claims for the right to hold his
opinion Is often very much like tho lazy beggar
who declares Mint the world owes him clothes
and food. At the age ol fit) tho true man still
studies afresh Mm problems of life.
Wldle. then, ue should bo full of charity
toward bcllut, and ninny confess that a good
man cannot shape his conclusions In the last
estate ot ihcm. yel we must Insist upon this,
that wu ourselves, und our ouponents too, shall
be careful that our opinions ami Umlrs shall
come not by wav of Ignorance, or neglect, or
prejudice, but must come by way of a broad
study and nn open heart.
Living in the world with such ft method of
studv, It dues not seem that atticism could over
become u wide-spread form of thought, for
against It Mm universe seems to battle all the
year through. A study of material science
alone Is a thought so one-sided mid narrow that
it cannot bustylpdun honest treatment of tho
cause, und Mm study of my own creed or
church is bo partial and defective
that the conclusions thus readied cannot
claim to be honest conclusion-. Neither a
Tvndall nor a Moody can set before us a fair
doctrine of the Creator, for while Mm former
makes tho Author of Nature ft dynamic being,
the latter makes linn only the Leader of per
netual scries of meetings in the tabernacle of
Heaven. It will require all science, and all the
ology und poetry, mid all mt, working In con
cert, to place before us the true Maker of our
earth and sky. .
It may be that tho faith In a Heavenly Father
would become marc teal should wu break away
Irom the lung and vain effort to embody God in
u shape und give to Him some ccuirul locality.
While wu thus embody Him Hu can never seem
to be near us. Hu will seem to be in His place
in far off space, and wu In our cottage or streets
with an awful sweep between. The common
thought Is that God is IwyunU tho sun. Friends
dying are often said to nave gone beyond “ the
setting sun.” Rvldoutly there Is no such
God. To escape practical atheism we
must throw away this old humanized
Deity, and must ask all Mm uir, and
all the sea, ami all the prairies with the varie
gated plants, and all the portume In the winds,
and Um song of Mm birds, amt the laughter m
our children, and the deeper thoughts and emo
tions of men to bo Mie place where Ood bus Mis
habitation. For what do we know of the form
of the Creator! What must we Hunk of a
Bower which mudo Mm universe across widen,
even so fur as measured by man, light Itself

not possible that any other estimate of the
Deity can tin trim.
On some accounts the undents hold views bet
ter than our own. We too have made Into n

Trinity M. E. Church was well tilled Inst
evening, n union meeting being held for Hie
purpose of pressing upon the Methodist puMlc
tlio claims of the Foreign Missionary Depart*
ment of the Church, On the platform were
seated Bishop Feck, Vreslding-Elder Willing,
the Iter. Dr. Fatten, the itev. Dr. Williamson,
the Her. W. F. Crafts, and other clergymen.
Dr. Fatten led In prayer for the blessing of the
Almighty upon the missionary work, and Dr.
Willing rend the story of the (food Samaritan,
lie also extended an urgent Invitation to Chris
tian laymen to attend the preachers* meeting to
be held tills morning at the First Church, Clark
and Washington streets, and then Introduced
Bishop Feck as the Hist speaker.
Bishop FccK said that the world was governed
not by chance or considerations of local policy,
but by the (fod who made it. He who made the
world governed It, and would save It. Men liv
ing In tin* present age saw something of the
carrying-oat of the divine plans. Beholding
tiie greet plan of salvation, they could see the
necessity for the coming of Christ to suffer for
the sins of men. It could have been executed
In no other way, and appeared not os on necl
, dent or co/moltv, but n« a part of one great plan
foreordained bv God from Urn eternities.
Christ sent forth His ministers, telling them to
go torth to the ends of the world to preach the
Gospel to all men. They must omit no
nation, and no individual but must carry the
Word of God throughout the eftrtb, This mes-
sage from God to man had been translated Into
almost every language, ami the Inventions of
printing, stereotyping, and many other devel
opments of science had been shaped to assist In
thin great work. Booking hack Into the past, It
was cubv to see Hint on organized system had
prevailed, and was being carried out In God's
own wav. There was nothing accidental about
It. Wesley and Whitfield were driven from
England, as Asbury was, lint by their labors the
Gospel of ChrUt wrr curried Into America. The
Methodist Church with its 1,000,000 Christians
closely associated one with another hi church
and conference, formed u great agent in the
great work of evangelization. The widow who
dropped her mite into the treasury of the tem
ple perhaps thought It was but a little matter,
but there was a competent witness present, and
It went upon the record.
. Bishop Peek said that In nil things be sap (he
development of God's plan for tho dissemina
tion of Christian teachings, (t was far hU
ho'ircra to consider what (hcv could do to assist
in this groat work. All could do something,
and nil should assist by their contribu
tions. Their witness was In Heaven,
and whnt they did would ho written
there, not In the perishable records
of this earth. It lav with every man to
make a good record for himself, pure and stain
less in the sight of God. But they mnst con
sider whether the gift of a dollar or n small
part of a dollar onco u year was a real currying
out of God's command to love their neighbors
ns themselves. They would subscribe cheer
fully for the relief of their brethren when
stricken bv lire, famine,*or pestilence, and he
could not believe that they would allow tho
souls of men to ntorvo while they partook of
abundant, blessing. They would bn ashamed If
their littlu donations of a nuarter nr half
a dollar were taken down by n reporter,
hut they must remember that wlmt they did
give was written down In Heaven, and that Hit*
record there made would stand for or against
Dr. Desticen, Secretary of tlm Foreign Mis
sionary Board, also spoke .briefly. He could
see In the constant buttles and struggles
amongst men a preparation for the greater de
velopment of Christ's Kingdom. In the Berlin
Treaty he found religious freedom for all men
stipulated for no less than live times, and all
Christiana were placed by It under the protec
tion-of Christian England. In thft Chinese
Treaty also religious toleration was extended,
not only to Christian missionaries, but to
Chinese who might become Christian*. Even In
Mexico the power of the Itoinan Catholic Church
had been broken, mid Protestant .missionaries
were no longer shot down on the public streets.
At (he time of disestablishment of the Cimreh
there were more ecclesiastics In the Cltv of
Pueblo than even In Koine. Vet In fifteen years
nil had hcen altered, and to-day in Mexico (hero
was not a monk, a nun, a Bister of Charity, or
one person daring to own himself a .Jesuit.'
The Catholic Church lias far more opportuni
ties in the Cltv ol Chicago today than In urn
CUv of Mexico. The speaker bud recently to
stop preaching for five minutes In the City ol
Ciuciniiail in order to allow the Passage of a
Catholic procession with a hand of music at Its
head. In .Mexico, such u procession would l>e
broken up bv the pollco and Us leaders arrested
Tho Unltm Stales entirely neglected this great
fluid both of business ami missions,’ TheKnglish
and Germans monopolized tho entire trade of
the countrv, and the speaker saw English ves-
Hels landing railroad iron In the harbor ol Vera
Cruz. Gen. Diaz had guaranteed lliu fullest
protection to all religion*. It was for Christian
men in tho Untied States to assist in Urn great
work of Introducing the Gospel to Mexico. One
thing he did know, ami that was that tiiev must
cither prav less or give more. They claimed
that Kiev had so much to do at. homo that they
could spare nothing for foreign lands. But they
must remember that religion was a com
modity of which tho muro was exported
the larger amount remained. People «of
Anglo-Saxon descent were so greatly Indebted
to missionaries that they ought to respond to
these calls. What would they have thought ot
St. Paul If In reply to the Macedonian err.
‘•Come over amt be ip us,” be buij answered
that he really had so much to do at home that
he couldn't cornel A Christian man had not
the right to do what ho pleased with Ills monev,
but must use It for good purposes. The speak
er referred to tho great work which the Medio
dlst missions aro doing In Chinn and other for
eign countries, and made a powerful appeal for
the continued support of these missions. A
collodion was (hen taken up, at which a band-
Homo sum was obtained.
Hlshop Jesse T. I’eek preached a sermon at
Centenary .Methodist Church yesterday morn*
liu; on iho duty of Christiana In supporting the
missions, chousin'; for his text tho passage of
Scripture found lu (ho twenty-llrat verso of thu
tenth chapter of Mark, “One thlnjf thou
Inchest," referring to the‘young ruler who
came to Christ ami was told to go nnd suit all
that ho had and give thu inunuy to tho poor.
There was one thin;; in the Hook of llevola*
ttou that tho speaker admired,—there was noth*
lug lacking. However remote tho mission might
bo from realization, there was uotlihijf lacking to
complete tho picture.. A tnau lu whom there
was nothing lacking was a beautiful picture to
contemplate. There was one thing lucking la
tho young ruler spokf.u of lu tho text,—some*
thing wauling In Uio fundamental principles of
his make-up. A man who was culled up and
shown one defect iu his character, wbou ho felt.
Hint tio was almost perfect, was not Apt to like
Hie master who pointed out that defect. The
one tliimr larking In this fount? ruler was doubt*
less an entire consecration of property. The
speaker wished Ids hearers to cool emulate what
(ho elfc't would ho in (hem if they lacked
Hie cMUF»*crntlon of all Hnlr properly to
the Church. Ho would like to have them feel
that all property belonged to God, to use as Hu
might see (It. Take that hroad statement,
“'llie earth belongs to Hie Lord and the full
ness thereof.” How this contrasted with the
puny rltrhts of propertvshlp which were mani
fested hy men of the world. Our talents, our
professional ami commercial ahllltlcs.All hciong
ed to God, and when we claimed credit fur (ho
power which belonged to God only, wo wero
When a mao, like the young ruler,
was successful In business, it made
him feel tljat It was a
great Inconvenience t o him to sell all and give
the proceeds to Hu- Lord, to give tip all his pun
scssions to the pour. It made him turn awav sor
rowful. Ami yet, this was Hie one thing neces
sary for n complete consecration to God. 'l'lu:
speaker thought this was a great Issue, and he
ought not to state II milcas he was right. And
If lie was right, should he not speak of the self
ishness of man in appropriating to himself the
riches that the Lord gave him lo use In
Ills name! It was a common occurrence
to eco a man who obeyed all the
external Injunctions In this life, am),
like the voting ruler, kept all his wealth for his
own selfish, personal u«e mid convenience.
How many externalists we saw every doy! They
lived external Christian lives, hut they spent all
their energies in trying to see how much wealth
and power Hn*y could command fur (heir own
personal gratlfimiHon. Did they not know Hmt
Hm liint thing a man nlwavs consecrated to God
was Ills propertv? This was the hardest thing
of all to give up. Ho would tell them honestly
that he did nut know any man who made an en
tire eonsecruHon of property. This was so mo
mentous a subject la the mind of Hie young
man Hint It actually drove him away from Christ.
The speaker said to bis hearers Hmt when he
told them that they lacked an entire consecra
tion, lie wished them to take Hie mutter entire
ly lo themselves individually. If a man said to
the Lord, Give me $10,00(1 this year in the
natural accumulation of gain, and I will give
vou SI,OOO, was this what we might call hcqcvo
lenccl Would not anybody be willing to do
Hmt,—give a person back one-tenth of wlmt that
person would give him! How much dlllereut
would be the proposition: Lord, give mu what
Thou seest (It, mid, us Thy faithful steward, 1
will bold tt nil subject to Thy orders. The
speaker did not think It right for a man,
when asked how much he would give lo mis
sionary work this veor, to answer, “1 will at
least give as muck ns 1 did last year.” He
should at nil limes hold himself In readiness to
give all to tin* Lord if He demanded It. Hu
closed his discourse by saying Hmt a man did
not have to give a great deal to feel that he bad
done right In Hie sight of the Lord. The widow
that gave her two mites felt that she had clone
all that was required of her; but hud she been
a millionaire, would the two mites have been
enough? 11 she had oven been a moderate
liver, would she have satisfied her own con
science had she not given u little more and lived
u little plainer In her fomllv!
At the close of Bishop Peck’s sermon n col
lection was taken up for the missionary fund.
Corresponding Secretary of the M. E. Mission
ary Society, preached lu Grace Church, corner
of LaSalle and . White streets, yesterday morn
ing, bis text being:
Ho vo unto nil the world and preach the Gospel
to every creature.— Mark, xxl., 1"».
Ho asked the question, ” What does the
Church of God exist for?” mid, in answering,
said, not fur the eloquence of its pulpits, not
for (ho sake of its music, nor its social
life,—not for one’s personal, Intellectual,
moral, or spiritual development. There
could be no perpetuity of the Church
ou Hmt basis. Such an object was too small,
too narrow. Christ gave the reason at Hie
moment of His departure from earth, when llu
committed the interests of Hte Church to His
Disciples. In all Ho said there was but one
single thought,—ononU-cotuprelienslve, glorious
thought,— .tnJ that was Hie missionary cause.
The speaker was compelled to infer, therefore,
Hmt the only reason fur the existence of (tin
Church among men was that Hm world might
ho evangelized—that the sinner might be
brought to Christ—that the darkness and
miser? of the world might be dissipated under
the Illuminating and cheering Itillncnues of the
blessed Gospel—that men might, through its
power, ho lilted from the mire to a seat at the
right hand of the Father ia Heaven.
The erection of temples, the cultivation of
music, Hie delivery nf discourses, our develop
ment in knowledge contemplated one thing,—
the lifting of the race from its misery mid deg
radation to the beatitudes and glory God had
reserved for them. The Church was the soli
tary agent to do the work, and IT the Church
dld'not accomplish the great work It would not
he accomplished. Had we permitted the mis
sionary cause to take its proper place in our
thoughts and alledkms} Hud vre realized
what a great subject It was! Could wo
lay aside this duty, mid he excusa
ble before God or clvo (he cause
a low place In our charities ami efforts, and yet
fulfill the purpose of Hie Father)
Deferring to Hu; Held, ho said no Church was
a true Church of Christ unless inspired with
enthusiasm for humanity. By wlmt authority
did men lituld walls across (ho Held,—fence In
portions of It which they proposed to cultivate,
to the neglect of the remainder! Had any one
u right to regard a human being so far beyond
him as not to be his neighbor! lie had observed
that the major portion of those who drew n dL
tlncHon bet ween domestic and foreign missions
contributed little effort or tmmov to either.
Covetousness was the secret of it. A
foreign missionary collection bad aover
been taken up in a Methodist Church.
.Since Hie Society started, SS.(KXI.O , JU had
been expended In our own country and $4,020,-
OOU abroad. One’s heart should be us broad us
human misery. The homo work had been very
encouraging, and the fotolgn missions were
progressing at a tiiost'woudurful rate. Careful
calculations made In the lust few years showed
Hmt, for every dollar expended in other coun
tries, three and a halt Simla wero converted.—
more than for every dollar spent in our own
1 util. Every man and woman could do much
labor for Christ and perishing souls. We could
seek those aruuttd us, and send sumo one abroad
ns our representative. •
In conclusion, he made a strong appeal for
those who had nothing, and a considerable sum
was collected.

.V*w For A* TVlftwn*, ifav .TO.
The choice of pews In die new Cathedral was
sold at public miction last evening by John C.
Wllmurdlng. About CCK) persons were present.
Large sheets of paper, on which wore printed
all Die pews In the church, with the annual
rental of ouch, were distributed. II was ati
nonneed that In no ease would a pew he sold.
Only the right to select u pew was at auction.
The highest bidder after selecting a pew was
entitled to uso it as long ns Hie annual reniul
should bo pah). At (he death of the buyer ilia
right to tim new would pass to his family. In
no case would tho privilege .tie sold to transfer
the pew to another or dispose of It In any way.
At'So’eloclc the sale was begun. Sending In die
middle aisle Ihc auctioneer announced that the
privilege of selecting any of the lint twenty-six
pews would be sold. The llrst bid was 950 J,
mid this was rapidly followed by advances of
£I<X) each un to $1,'150. The bids then rose to
91,550 and #l,7iW. Thorivalrv had been keen
among those desirous hf obtaining Die llrst pew
in Dio ehnreh, but the hid of 151,700 surpassed
the expectation of (he most of them and they
left the coinnuililon to two ur three. From
91,7T>0 the hid was raised to §I,BOO, llien to
93,0011, at widen there was a murmur u(applause.
The auctioneer lU'ullv called S3,UX), mid dwelt
on (but sum some time, but was unable to get
higher. The Hnecesstul bidder was Mrs. Jose F.
da Navarro. Mrs. Navarro selected pew No. 1,
Urn annual rental of which is 9150.
Prices afterward full considerably. The sec
ond choice was sold after llvo bids. It was
started at 9000, and was hunched down to Ku
gene Kelly, the banker, for 975(1. He chose pow
No. 0. For third choice 953 J was olferud Imme
diately, but there was no Increase. Charles
Donohue was the bidder, and selected pew No.
5. The auctioneer then offered any of the re
maining pews at |iU3. Several applications
were made In rapid succession as follows: Jo
si’ph J. O'Donolinc, of No. B 8 Front street, so-
IcctJit No. 7; William ‘nml John O’Brien, thu
hunkers, No. B; John Johnson, No. 1(1; MUs
MeNcuiciiv and Miss K. Byrnes, No. Id; mid Mr.
Kcheverria, No. 111. When the uspllcatloiu had
stopped, thu choice was again put up at auction.
Starling at 9350, the bids rose slowly till 9-UKJ

as J. U’Uonohno, No. 13. Jehu U. Crimmlns
Wus given No. 15 at $153.
Mr* lioguet then said iliot some of the other
pews In the middle aisle might bo more desira
ble mid announced that he would sell the right
to ouv unsold pews down to No. 43. The bid
ding, however, did not become more spirited.
Beginning at 1350 the bid only was Increased
$25, and the choice was knocked down to
James D. Lrnch at $375. lie chose pew No. 11,

The auctioneer then told the people to bid for
the first twelve pews on the first side Isle, next
lo Fiftieth street. The pulpit Is on this side.
They sold rapidly for $75 each. The first side
aisle on the left of the middle aisle was
then visited. Higher prices were ob
tained, as a better View of the whole
sanctuarr could bo had, and the
preacher could he seen to more advantage. A
number of the news sold for over and sev
eral for prices between ItW and $75. Ton pews
In the north transept In Iront of the altar of
Hie Virgin Mary were offered, but no bids were
received. Similar pews In the south transept,
in front of St. Joseph’s altar, brought no bids.
The middle nlsli was again visited, and the few
remaining pews down to No. 42 were put up
for Bale. Five were sold for over SSO each, nml,
ns Hmt price could not be increased, Mr. Hogiict
concluded to stop the sale. No announcement
was made when the auction would be contin

The Subdivision of tlio Current Accomplish
ed—Letters I’utent Allowed to the Invent
or—Description of the New I‘roccss—An
Invention Approved by Experts.
A>»r fort- Tliii'f, H'l'J SO.
While the scientific world,divided into factions
represented respectively by electricians In Hie
interest of the gas companies, and those whom
the latter either could not buy or thought too
obscure to buy, has been disputing learnedly
about the divisibility of the electric current,
one of those peunllcss persons styled Inventors
has gone to work la his little attic, solved the
problem, applied for a patent, placed Ills model
on record In the Patent Ofhee, and yesterday
received a notice from the Examiner of I’alcata
that Ids application had been allowed, and
Hmt Hie fee of S2O fur granting letters
patent must bo rendered within a
certain period, or the application
will have to be made over again. The history
of this Invention• I* somewhat curious. The in
ventor of this new electric light, In which
minute candles of lamp-black arc used In place
of (he ordinary carbon pencils, is Mr. Allred G.
Holcombe, 'who took out letters patent three
.years before Heuss had completed his first crude
telephone, for an electrical instrument which
covered tin* telephone us subsequently devel
oped by Bell and others. The model of this
instrument—(he first telephone ever inauulac
tured—was shown to the writer some weeks
ago, and Is bHII in existence. The vibrating disk
was formed by Hit; cover of one of those cylin
drical cedar-wood boxes In which a certain
bland of smoking-tobacco was sold a few years
ago, and altogether thin Adam of telephones
is a very primitive affair: but It la In
teresting as the very first model of that wonder
ful Instrument ever put in operation, it was
.exhibited by the inventor In the presence of
queer old Dr. Bradley, Hie man who kept clocks
In order, and a few friend*, in a little room in
Fine street, in this city, years before the tele
phono broke on Hie popular imagination as a
new revelation of the possibilities of science, it
\h worthy of note, also, that there Is now on rec
ord at the Patent Olllce, uh having been made in
IS7O, the application lor a patent of a man giv
ing.his residence as on tituten Island, whose
specifications coverall the points of the now
familiar telephone. For some reason or other
—poverty probably—ho never took out Ida
patent, and thus the honor of an Invention In
which them was a fortune slipped through
two bauds, and was Dually awarded,
not to the original Inventor, nor
even lo the peeonu in order, but to
the third, fourth, or fifth. The real Inventor,
whoso quaint little model dates back more than
fifteen years, has exhausted evert oHmr moans
to obtain his right?, urn) will eoou bring nn
oellnn for Infringement. Ills patent having ex
pired nearly two years ago, there was sullldent
influence and money arrayed against him to
prevent renewal, and nothing remains except to
bring action for his royalty during the period in
which his patent was valid alter proiUaole man
ufacture rcallv commenced.
With the electric light our many times disap
pointed electrician has been more fortunate, nut
having to create a public interest hi u wholly
tie willing. It. is a familiar fact among electri
cians that the real value of Edison's patent lira
In the Invention of u regulator by which Hie
platinum U prevented from luslmr,—that is to
?uv, by which Hie temperature is regulated. The
division of Hie current and the production of n
light of moderate intensity—of onc-euidlc now
er. say—remain as apparently Insurmountable
as ever. Edison’s light Ift bv incandescence,
which, fur reasons that only on expert would
understand, is more expensive than the are.
I‘rof. Farmer has always claimed that, while
a light of llfty-caudle power might he econom
ically produced by electricity, it was Impractica
ble to undertake a minuter subdivision, and In
tills opinion Prof. Morton, of Hie Stevens Insti
tute, coincides. Such a light Is available for
the illumination of large areas, hut will not
answer for domestic ami social purposes, and
hence, in the present state of Hie question, so
for as public exhibitions and experiments and
the Inventions used for them arc concerned,
the gas men have nothing to fear. Only u tew
days ago, In n conversation with the Inventor
whose work Is under consideration, Prof. Far
mer expressed Hie opinion dial such a thing
ns a onc-c indie power, steady, unllnetnattug,
and inexpensive, was not lu he accomplished
bv electrical means. And yet, with a curious
obtuf-eness, nil these great electricians have
overlooked one factor hi Hie accomplishment.
In irvlug to reduce the Intensity and to regu
late 'lt, It did not apparently occur to them cor
respondingly to reduce the carbon pencils end
the are; and their efforts to produce a light
of one-candle power have been made with the
name pencils and are that would have been used
for 1,000 times Hm brilliancy. The reply to this
objection invariably has been that m> reason van
bo assigned whv smaller points should be used,
and yet It might have been answered that the
resistance of two given pencils of carbon should
be in some measure proportionate to (he squares
of (heir diameters, ah hough It had never been
experimentally demonstrated.
Heasomng alter this manner, our electrician
procured the smallest carbon pencils that could
he made, and commenced to experiment with
them. The result was that me ends of Hie
pencils fused, and (ho arc was extinguished,
lie next looked about him fur some form of
varhou which should not he open to this objec
tion, mid after many trials hit unuii lamp-black,
had Hie required pencils manufactured from It,
nml was successful In producing a steady, relia
ble light of only one-candle power, upon the
prmclule pointed outlu the preceding paragraph,
in speaking of the subject yesterday afternoon
the gratified Inventor Bald that, with this prob
lem solved, nml with the less expensive form of
carbon (Imup-oiack) used In the manufacture of
his points, tt would ho posribhi to light n parlor
ut from uuc-lllth to one-eighth the cost of gas
for the Mima purpose. His first points could
utilv bo used about three hour*, but he Inu re
cently produced carbons (hat lasted lUty hours,
and has thus nearly dispensed with Hie trouble
of renewal found to be so formidable In Hie Job
luchkol! light, experiments with which have
been tried on u large scale in Furls. Thu real
point of the Invention consists in the regulation
of Resistance, ami the consequent omolovincut
ui no mure electrical force (tun is required.
The invention Ims been viewed lu uneratkm
only bv a few experts as vet; but Hie latter
sneak of it lu terms of Hie highest enthusiasm,
as overcoming lu the simplest and mod praetl
' eal maimer the abjections Hint have hitherto
stood In the wav of substituting electricity for
gas. namely, that the former cannot be econom
ically subdivided; Hmt tno carbon points uru
100 expensive for popular use, and (hat (heir
necessarily frequent renewal is 100 troublesome
to be tolerated by busy people. Tito new meth
od will be put up exhibition at eoou as all the
necessary arrangements can be perfected.
