lVf..n im lies "Thvj Christian Mirror." It
is an oll fculiioned "Orthodox." weekly; and
we see that the present is the LVIIth volume.
It was originally published and edited by the
flov. Doctor Camming, a learned and very
levont man, and ;i shining light in the Con-'i-egatioiud
Clnin.li. The i;;jer is now edited
by one 1. 1. Warren who lling.j out as his
motto the words: ' ' Tf I forget thee, O Jerusa
lem, Let my right hand forget her cunning."
We hardly know why 51 r. Warren chose this
particular sentence fur his motto. It was-the
I'.salmist who said those words; and why Mr.
Warren thinks them appropriate to his calling
and eh'ctioii " e are :if. a loss to guess. Wo

Mirror, reflecting like unto a faithful glass
the doctrines of the s.out old Calvinists, ar
raigns Mr. r.eecher for his heresies and re
luikea him with an unsparing hand. As for
example, in reviewing s.ome of Mr. IVs recent
utterances as given to the world through the
columns of the Christian Union, the Mirror
employs the following language: "His objec
tions to future eternal punishment are what
have been reiterated by skeptics, infidels, and
"riorists, ever since Christianity was given to
the world. It is an old device of unbelief to
draw up the soul-harrow ing pictures of persons
phingod in?o flames and tomtented by devils,
and to ask, " I low would you feel to think
'hat your child were to be doomed thus?''
What do all such pictures prove ! Just nothing
jt all. The actual world in which we livecon
ains the elements for innumerable such pic
tures as these, in regard to which one might
ask, "How would you feel if you were assured
that your child or friend were to be made to
urt'er thus f The truth is that the whole uni
verse lifts a "Background of Mystery" not
alone of possible mercies but of actual and
jKwitivo horrors; and ho reasons but poorly
who flies thither to find the one, but shuts his
'n'es to the cvtainfieof the other. To the
wicked (.mil (. a consuming tire,' and it was
in apostolic hands these ' terrors of the Lord'
by which men were persuaded. The one sufti
ient answer to all these frightful suppositions
Is that if any human soul is finally and forever
tost it will be because it was so appointed lv
unerring Wisdom, and Goodness, and this
met made apparent will command the appro
val ..f all but those who are themselves rebels."
Now if this means anything it means a hold
ing to the faith of what goes by the uylv name
f "Infant D amnatiou' ---which, not profanely
peaking, is Hell with a vengeance. We are
tree to coiifeis that we cannot see how one
may accept any of the premises laid down by
(alvin and not proceed to just these lengths.
The fact is that Mr. JJoechcr represents a class
of emotional people who, as the saying is,
"have got religion," but who shrink, coward
like, from the inevitable conclusions of the
logic of their doctrine.
Furthor along in this review of the Mirror's
is the following amusing bit of sanctimonious
ness: ihe theme is a fruitful as well as a
Mid one, but we forbear to follow it. As we
rook occasion to s;-y when the reports of Mr.
f's late sermon came to us, we have no fear
from all this for Cod's truth. "Forever ()
Lord thy word is settle! in heaven." Christ
:as spoken in human language, and neither
ho words nor the meaning he intended by
i hem will ever pass away. They will remain
from generation to generation declaring ever
the immutable principles of his law; that he
is merciful and gracious, long-sulFjring and
abundant in goodness and truth, and that will
by no means clear the guilty." This "Hot
iospeller" has no thought of letting off" the
wicked with any we-'.k assurances of a chance
to escape. And it is held by a not a few that
uch a hard-hearted religion as this is a com
fort to its possessors. And we suppose it
must be, else they would try and be rid of it-

THE Il.SilLUS op GAL1LKK.
j eaterday morning at 5 o'clock the Senate
of the United States passed the Silver Bi!!.
Ti e vote stood 48 to 21. This of course is a
two thirds vote. All that was needed, how
ever, was a majority. The value of the two
thirds is in its relation to a possible veto by
the P.-jsident: For it takes a two third vote
to p;us any measure over t.Vj veto of the exec
utive. Now the question arises: What con
stitutes a two thirds vote of either House of
Cong: ess.' Let us see what the Constitution
says reknive to the matter. Specification V.
Section Cue, reads as follows: "Each House
shall be the judge of the elections, returns
and qualifications of its own members, oi l a
iihijorif'i vf ;-h Kimll roh.sh tnf,: a iKoni))i fo
Inishutx. Specification Three of Sec. VII.,
reads as follows: Every order, resolution or
vote to which the concurrence of the Senate
and House of Representatives may be neces
sary (except in a question of adjournment),
shall be presented to the President of the
United States; ami before the same shall take
effect shall be approved by him, or, being
disproved by him, shall be repassed by two
thirds of the Senate and House of Reprsen
tatives, according to the rules and limitations
prescribed in the case of a bilL "
This makes it clear, provided there is no
rule of the Houses to the contrary, that two
thirds of the members present is the two
thirds contemplated by the Constitution.
The Su preme Cou rt is competent to pass upon
the constitutionallity of any act of Congress;
while it is entirety incompetent to determine
the question of what constitutes a two thirds
vote, or to pass upon any other question af
fecting the organization or functions of Con
gress. Otherwise, the law-making power
would be subject to, instead of being hide
pendent of the judicial department of the
government. What it does mav be tried in
the courts; but its manner of procedure is
solely its'own business.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 8, 1878.
Almost the only interest in legislation cen
tres in the Senate, the week opening in that
body with a resumption of debate on the
Bland bill. Senator Beck offered a substi
tute for the amendment proposed by the Com
mittee on Finance, requiring the Secretary of
the Treasury to purchase $;,000,000 in silver
bullion per month and coin it into dollars,
and, if the market supply should fail, empow
ering any citizen possessing bullion to deposit
it for coinage. It also provides that the
standard of subsidiary coins shall be raised to
an equality with that of the dollar. In reply
to an objection by Morrill that foreigners
might avail themselves of whatever advantage
could be derived from the bill, Beck explained
that "they must make our citizen the owner
of the buMion for all the purposes of our law,
md our dealings should be with him and not
with them." Senator B.ivard followed in a
trefrdly prepared speech which consumed
the remainder of the daV. He insisted that
to say the dollar of 4121 grains should be re
ceived at par was to say that a dollar's worth
of labor was worth but ninety cents. Labor
seems willing to risk all that sort of tiling,
m l our greenback experience taught us that
when a dollar was worth only forty cents in
gold, l.toor demanded more dollars than
:i.;ig-i to make good the deficiency, and,
what was better, got them. Senator Eaton

A BOYS ADVENTURE.
The Eureka Sentinel of Tuesday has the
A boy, while on his way to the Richmond
charcoal pile above the furnaces yesterday,
espied an old wheel oil the hillside. With
true boyish impulse he stood it on its rim and
started it down hill. With the usual perver
sity and cussedness of all inanimite things, it
took a straight course for a Chinamen's shanty,
and gathering force and velocity by the mo
mentum of its down hill revolution, it dashed
with great force against t he door of the Celes
tial residence and tore it from its moorings,
carrying wreck and destruction to the interior.
A dozen terrified and scared Celestials tum
bled out of the back window and sought
safety on the flat below. The boy had taken
to his heels and disappeared over "the crest of
the hill, and there was no visable cause in
sight to account for the apparent earthquake.
After a long consultation the bravest barbar
ian cautiously crept back, peered around the
coiner of the shanty and finally ventured to
the doorway. His con:aanions joined him.

its friends to rejoice and its enemies to look

President in '81, certainly no man in his party
could fill the office with greater credit to the
country. He was followed by Kernan m the
interest of the gold -grabbers, and also by
Christiancy, who endeavored to repair the
damage he had received on Tuesday at the
hands of Howe. Yesterday Senator Blaine
took the floor after the expiration of the
morning hour, and spoke apparently on both
sides of the ponding question. He wanted
and didn't want silver remonetized; but in
any event desired silver enough (425 grains)
in the dollar to suit Jay Gould and his asso

lawyer said he could not answer till he had

Though not a lawyer, we think we can satis
factorily answer the citizen's question. In
our opinion it is not a crime to shoot cats,
providing you hit them square between the
eyes and stun them so that they will lie still
till you can get to them and chop them into
small bits with an ax. We do not hold that
walking into a sitting room, and turning the
contents of a six-shooter into a cat as it peace

pale of the Constitution.
