'88. 1)i:aii iNTKiiiHii: Tlio Indepcndeiuo inoetiiiK clotK'd in olomls and tlurkiiww, which we accepted as a "complimentary benetlt," from the "prince of the power of the air," and "ruler of the dnrknww of this iiko." The Independence wiw not to liis liking and he flowed it in thin little piece of parting uplto. It failed, however; for the dear people braved the element and faced the black nik'tit, lllllng the pretty church comfortably. We came over to our now preaching-place by 'bin from Independence to Covington; from there to D.iyton by street car, or "tram," iw we learned to call it in the land of Kphrnim. Hro. Lay, who "got up" the D.iyton meeting alone came over to I. to show tin the way to 1i!h "pink cottage," where wo arc now happily and generounly entertained, the whole "Troupe" once more together. We have a holy horror of being even when there in a "needs be" for it. At Covington on Saturday the bulk of the party went at once to Cincinnati, while lint. Ijiv and I came to Dayton to depoiit mid bundles, rejoining them at the Cillwon I!ouc by 10 o'clock. There, joined by our kind and Mleadfiwt friend, Frank Savage, wo till went to the Centennial, where hcfliad a inoct enjoyable day; getting to D.iyton about 0 v. m., fagged but happy. What we nav there and what we beard I hball not attempt to describe. It is quite "fairy-land," especially utter the night illumination shed its many-tinted radiance over the whole. Our HTVicos are held in the llalke House, tit Hellevue, at a point Intermediate between Newport and Dayton, catching auditors from loth places. It was well selected; is a beautiful nwiu, into which six or seven hundred can be crow ded; and has been tilled from the first, and Sunday evening it was packed. An earnest, rcsoetful hearing is all we can a;k, and that we certainly have had. A large proiwrtion of the congregation cohsInM of tlioe who are "teacher of others," of which I am glad. Tims far our audiences seem most favorably impressed, for which "l'raiso the I.OKD!" Kver since the dear Master gave us this gospel in charge He has preserved us from the cringing attitude of deprecation; as If we needed to apologize for an unpopular doctrine; but has given us ''boldnctts," "Hi'li l'ill'l pmyeil for and asked others to help him to, by their prayers, to strike right at the tap-root of the matter in hand and fling out "a banner on the outer wall." The scandal of Christendom is ourplea for a "new departure," which yet is not new, but a return to tho true theology of Apostles and I'ropltets, and the open and manifest failure of tho"Hig Five" to "hold the foit" against one unseconded assailant is tho text from which "a more excellent way" is pointed out. That way, no christian ought to object to, for it is simply the insistauce on the principle that our dear I.OItl) Jesus is the full nml true manifestation of CJod, and that thu eye is never to bo taken from HIM, n moment, in learning anything of the holy character of our Heavenly Father. This is where religious teachers have so commonly failed. They have Interpreted Scripture, not in tlio white light of Jesus' dear Life anil Death, but to the "killing letter" of tho Word. This is death to "tlio Spirit," as l'aul tells us plainly. And this alone has given Col. lngersoll his opportunity, in in deadly strife with tlio accepted champions of Christianity. I trust 1 shall not bo misunderstood, in referring again and again to what has become so shamefully notorious; for there are thousands who will lazily drift down stream, unless conscience can bo thoroughly aroused to the disgrace of these patent facts. To "go with tho multitude" is so easy, even when tho majority is utterly wrong. Tlio latest Theological "mill" must have reached its close. Ilenlly, there is no more to say on either side, as the parties to the conflict aro now arrayed. I am loth to acknowledge it, for my sympathies and longings for victory aro nil on tho side of Christianity, but I must say tho "Agnostic" has tho best of tho light thus far. Though, to bo sure, five to ono uru heavy odds. And heroin Ho tho mystery nnd the shame of it. That with tho best Bido to defend and outnumbering tlio wrong ho greatly, victory should yet porch upon tho banner of error, in such a decided way. Surely tho conviction comes to every thoughtful man that Truth must bo heavily to be so far behind. Instead of "ono chasing n thousand and two put .1.,.. I.... il.Aiwimil to flleht." nstho Serin- tures promise their champions; wo find flvo fleeing, discomfited, before one, nnd that ono in tho wrong.

His amazing forte Is in attack. No predecessor in the dialectics of lias touched him in acute perception of the assailable points of Christianity; and no one has stormed the carefully constructed outworks of theology nnd demonstrated their indefensibility so completely as he. And lot me add that his assaults are delivered, not with tli blind courage of one who rushes with eipial assurance of success against a Malakoll' or Itedan, as against some insignificant eai th work; but he chooses his ground with n veteran's skill, and only makes n feint at an impregnable post, while his reserves "rush" the point where ho knows hecan get In. For example, his attacks upon tlio New Tentmncrit are far less pronounced than agiiiust the Old; and he seems, instinctively, to shrink from assailing the tcitchiui; of Christ: even though he can easily prove Him from the "letter" ofSTipturetobethe apparent Author j . hVo Just lwinie.1 that Mark Jar-of the orthodox dogma of eternal pun-1 ,,, ,,, ,,,. l)lWi nf mir ishineiit -his especial I'lt tiuir. 1 ie well 1 knows they both stand or fall together, ami he scouts to feel this, nervously, by getting nway from Now Testament ground, and the Sermon on the Mount, to the more congenial "M it-takes of Moses," where lie can have things pretty much his own way. For he can here revel in an opulence of damaging facts, that tell, at every turn, against the Jehovah of the Old Testament; while he "tights shy" of the "(iod and Father of! our LOUD Jesus Christ."

Wallace, relict of ex-Governor Wallace, of Indiana, and mother of Gen. Low Wallace, or more properly speaking, mother of "Ben Hur," delivered a powerful lecture at tho Methodist church in this cityTuesday evening. Ho subject was prohibition and woman's sutl'rago and tho gifted woman brought out facts in an entirely new light to many present, and all were pleased with her able nnd withal plensing presentation of her subject. She denied that the prohibitionists had pushed tho temperance question into politics and asserted that tho whisky men themselves had done so, by passing resolutions declaring that thoy would support tho candidates of no party who were not pledged to the liquor tratlic, and tho temperance people had nothing left them to do but to take up tho gauntlet and light for God and Home and Native un tno question of woman's sutTrage, among other things, sho protested thut if some patriotic Irishman should address us on the subject of Homo Rule for Ireland our hearts would go out to the cause earnestly nnd speedily, nnd she appealed to tho gallant men of the United States to give tho woman at lest a partnership in tlio Homo Rule of this fair land. Politics sho said would not degrade tho women but would elevate them. Tho address throughout was striking nnd learned, and although I can not endorse the doctrines advanced, I should bo glad to give n full synopsis of tho speech, believing it would bo of interest to your readers, but both timo nnd spneo forbid.

Warren, tho' that gentleman attempted no answer to Mr. Warren, but directed i his remarks principally to the Tate do-1 falcation, saying that he was not prepared to speak on tho tarilT question. lie-, sides he preferred to leave that for Fin- ley to discuss. At noon Col. Wolfonl took the stand and for an hour nnd a half poured hot shot into Finley. He said that Fin ley had accused him of selling tho garden seed the government furnishes Congressmen for their constituents and had appropriated the stamps sent by correspondents who wished answers, and that if he repeated it lie was a "liar, an infamous scoundrel and a coward." Ho showed up Finley's unique proposition for the government to establish a bar-room or two in each county, at which a man could get no more than three drinks a day and none if ho was n drunkard, and said that Finley had acknowledged tho charge at some other appointment, but I claimed that lie was drunk when he pro-1 posed it. The old man said but little ' about the tnrili", most of his speech being ' directed against Finley, his record in I Congress, etc. Finley in his response was very bitter against Wolford, whom he claimed was set up by the democrats, not with a hope of election, but to harass him as much as possible. He then launched forth into abuse of Cleveland and alaudaiion of the protective tariff, which subject he handled with his usual recklessness as to facts and figures. At the conclusion of his speech nil the republicans left the court-room, refusing to hear Wolford's rejoinder. Democrats who were present tell us that this was tlio arrangement, and that the applause that Finley re-' reived was by chequers, who frequently cheered at the wrong time and place. Well posted democrats think that Col. Wolford will come to Pulaski with IV-'OO majority, leaving that county and Whit ney to overcome n u finley is eiecteu. Mr. Warren thinks that the democracy is in good fighting trim in Hussell, and that if tho Central Committee will do its duty in the district Wolford is sure of election. J,ICK V.
