Hereafter notices of companies, socle- Uos, eburohes, etc., will only be Inserted In tbe Hebat.d as paid advertisements, We reserve, tor Places of Worship, a grat ia directory, wbicb will appear every Sunday morning. A Dangerous Innovation. Perhaps the most interesting fea ture of current aTscussion and con troversy, for tome time past, has hinged upon the revision of the Holy Bible. We bave felt a keen Interest In tbis quite sensational religious development. Oa tbe on* band we bave the Roman Catholio Cburcb wbicb, from a logics! standpoint, is absolutely in dependent of any or all editions of the Bible. Tbat superb organiza tion puts itsslf forth as baying been In full, valid and efficacious vigor before even a single line of the Bible had been written. ''Thou art Peter," said Christ, "and upon thla rock I build my church." Tbe Roman Catholics claim that the Pope of to-day is the regular, if not lineal successor, of the clumsy and cowardly fisherman of Galilee, whom Christ honored above all his Apostles on account of bis brute Md dog-like fidelity. They point to those passages of St. Paul iv which tbe faithful ure exhorted to hold fast to the traditions, aud the oldest Christian oburch pluuts it self absolutely auu entirely upon tbe goepel aa interpreted by its owu divine authority. The next oldesi Christian church, the Greek, takes precisely tbe ground of tbe Roman Catholic; and, iv most of ita ob servances aud details of faith and practice, though tbe blsrarcby i different, tbe Greek persuasion is a remarkable confirmation cf tbe Catholic claim us to iis light ol in terpreting the scriptures. These remarks are merely intro ductory to tbe statemeut of tbe faci tbat the revUiou of tbe Bible will be mainly of interest tn the hun dred and one Proteetant sects, wbicb range from thu severe aud predestinarlau ideas of Calvin lo tbe loose and purely intellectual theology of Theodore Parker When Luther repelled lbs Papal headship of the Christian church he starud a multiplicity of sect whose contradictory opinions hay, been analyzed and commented upoi at length by Bossuet, the eaglt Bishop of Meaux. Since Boseuel't time the niceties and variations oi theological opinion in all quarter? whioh do not rtcognize the infalli bility of the Pope and the supre macy ot tl c Roman Curia bavt increased a huudred-fold. In tbt United States to-day there is i. mercurial intellectual Impulse wbich will either multiply Chris tian sects or lead, ultimately, to an absolute denial of all authority founded upon revelation. It is at tti ia stage that a council of learmd meu, oamprlsing many o tbe eminent churchmen of Eng land and tho United States, an nounces a revised Bible which cuts the ground from under tin feet of tbe average Protestant. It It safe to eny that 11 tbe revised Bible had existed lv their day, Fox'r Martyrology would have been im possible and Banyan would nol b»ve languished iv an English jail, or bave written his Pilgrim's Prog ress. Both were fouuded upou a fanatical belief wbich could noi have been generated by tho revlseu Bible, While appreciating t ur eutire in ability to enter upon the field ol theological polemics, in any detai or with any authority, we claim t< be able to diagnose tbe signs of tbt times. Tbe new Bible will co-ope rate with the lugersolls of the daj in dealing v deadly blow ut belie 1 In revelation. When long genera tions of men and women bave rrg ulated their daily lives upon tbe authority aud verity of a sacred prescription; when all that Is deal to tbe human heart Is at one blow swept away, the whole fabric of be lief is apt to follow. There Is a homely old adage which runs thai you can't teach au old dog new tricks. You can't take the bum ble and believing Christian, and above bim Into now grooves, with out a shock which will unsettle many of the old timer?, aud throw tbe rising generation utterly out ol gear. Bob Ingersoll is an eloquent, cunning and masterly Vitruvius ol unbelief. But the revisers of tbe Bible beat Ingersoll all hol low. Tbe Calholin and the Greek church remain undisturbed by any scheme of Bible revision, bui tbe manifold Protectant commun ions are left to struggle with a movement of unbelief which will gain momentum as an Incident of tbe revision. Tbe man of science will regard tbis result as undiluted good, While tbe bumble and perse wariog believer will bug bis King iaa»Ws Bible to bia heart wltb ■saw v»bsa»sncs than ever. Wbat- Biblical revision, tho fact is that the old Bible was a well of Eng lish undefiled. The people had become thoroughly habitu ated to it. The style of the most nervous and masterly writers of the English language has been based upon the King James Bible. Nearly all the polemical eloquence and controversial skill of Protest ant divines have been founded upon it. In addition, it is certainly very late in the day to sound the note of Biblical change and revolu tion. Tbe old Bible ougal to have beeu let alone. The Illustrated Herald ' meets a want loDg felt In this com munity. In additiou to it 9 artistic merits, it answers every inquiry that has been or may bo addressed to any inhabitant of Los Angeles about this city or county. The ar ticle contributed by Judge R. M. Wldney, under the caption of "Questions Answered," whs pre pared with great care by lint gen tleman, who bus a very Intimate acquaintance with every phase o[ this section. The atticlss fur nished by Dr. WJdoey ou Wil mington Harbor uud our climate are valuable and scientific, the lat ter having previously appeared in tbe Californian. lis republication In its entirety is with the consent and at tbe desire of Dr. Wldney. Col. W. R. Olden bus writ.en uu exhaustive article on the Southern portion of tbe county, while Gen. Beale tells wbat be knows of Santa Monica. The other portions of the letter print aro intended to make the review uf our present status, resources and prospects complete and harmonious. As to the typo graphical details of tbe Illustrat co Herald it is not too much to say that the work equals if it dot! uot surpass anything of the kind previously issued ou tbe American continent, the design has been to present the attractions of v section to possible settlers and in vestors. The publisher bus taken a pride iv hie work and b;i« printed it on a quality of paper finer aud heavier tbau that ou which Har per's Weekly is worked off, thus giving grace ami finish to tho il lustrations. Tbe cut of Lo-! Ange les in ISSI, with tbe accompanying sketch ofthe town in 1557, would ordinarily be sold for at least tweu ty-five cents. We have made it a point to pu'. the Illustrated Herald ut the popular price of teu cents, witli the view of facili tating iis universal circulation. That such will be tlie result we cannot doubt after the lively de maud yesterday. The Duke of Sutherland, who appioved himself such a genial jeutleuiaii during his visit to Los Angelec, is a goo*! deal of a good fellow at home, or all accounts be lie bim. AtTrontliam Hull, near the Staffordshire potteries, he has a princely seat, embowered in a fine park, and invested with the traditional manoiial dignify. At Trentbam there is cat and come tgaiu for every oue, and a boru oi tie and a chunk of bread and cheese is at tbe service cf all wbo call at bis lordly mansion. Those wbo witnessed the wild and boy ish delight with whicb the Duke and bis aistinguished companions disported iv tbe surf at Santa Monica will never doubt but tbat tbis British grandee is at the bot tom a jolly good fellow. While the rank is but the guinea's stamp, .the real gold is often tbere too. The fact that tbis British peer ot ulgb desreo is interested in tbe ailway projects wbicb aim to develop the Pacific Coast and Mexico invests bim with an un usual interest to our people. We confess that we are a little curious to hear what Dr. Hussell will have te say of Los Angeles and Santa Monica iv tbe Loudon Times, li lie writes as he talked while here >t will be erjoyable reading to our people. The people of California bear with iueflable disgust of a proposi tion (o again convene the Legisla ture of this State in special session. It is not too much to suy that thoy would almost prefer eotiug (lie State relapse into v territorial gov ernment to knowing that tbe rusty miscreants who, in the main, com posed the body just adjourned, had met again tv mock their constitu ents. Anything but that is the cry from a people who have tlevieed a litany of supplication far more piteous in its terno.9 thou that which graces any of the rubrics of any of tbe Christian churches. How inexpressibly calamitous it would he to have these abhorrent fellows again vexing the circum ambient air of Sacrameulo witb tbeir cacophonous notes of plunder? From any such infliction, good L jr.l deliver us. An old Iszzaroue has just died at Naples after a most successful ca reer In matrimony. He was mar rled seven times under King Bom ba, and bad 76 children, who are still alive.

"Yes, when 1 am in tlie vein; but at these untimely hours, when only ohtireb-yards yawn, tlie humor Is not on me." "Humor is will; will is inspira tion; 'twill come. Sit at your desk and write a duet between a lover anil his sweetheart. Hero ia the idea." Meyerbeer gave his thoughts. "I would write what you waut a good deal better after thinking it over to-night, (live mo uutil to morrow." "No, no, no; write It at ouo>, to morrow 1 ehall tie iv Horliu." Tho poet wrote tho duet. Meyer beer was pleased with it. Ho drew out his pocket-book, took a lUOO italic ba ik note from it, and gave it to tbe poet, saying: "ile good euough to accept this rag for your author's loyally, with a tliousand tbuuks." It ie said tbis duet was used in "L'Africalne." An Old Acquaintance. Tho late Charles Chapman, who was iv his day the loremost crim inal lawyer iv Connecticut, so ably defended a mau once wbo was charged with tho crime of murder, tbat he cot oil'with manslaughter, although there was scarcoly a doubt of bis guilt of tho graver of fense. ; A very prominent citizen who was convinced of the man's iruilt was so uunoyed lo think tbat Chapmuu had saved tbe fellow's ueck from tbe halter, that be re fused to speak to tbe distinguished advocate for a long time after. A number of years later Mr. Chapman's door-bell rang, uud a visitor wus announced. "Good moruiug, Mr. Chapman," was the salutation. "You have the advantage of mp," replied the lawyer. "I do not rec ognize you." "My name is-——. Don't you remember that you got me off for ten years for killing so and so ?" "Yes, I do remember it, and I got throueli with you then and there. 1 want n0..: n j more to do with you, sir." • "You nesdn'i !i* «o 'ty.Sli about it," muttered the fellow. "Tlie way you talked to that jury almost made me believe I didn't do it, and now you've goue back on me;" uud lie walked disconsolately away.— HaHford Times.

Joe Stevens went to ber from Edgefield to get a cure for his rheumatism. She performed some mummery over bim, anuoiuted his rheumatic arm,and tbe pain ceased.
