THE RICHLAND BEACON.
WILEY P. XANGHAM, - Editor. S.. B. bAIRD, Associate Editor & Publisher Rayville, La., June 21,1873. THE GROBEAT QUESTION OF THE DAY. How shall we save ourselves from utter Ibankruptcy and ruin? This is the all-almbsorbing question of our agri cultural communities-the solving of; which seems to be most perl.lexing. It is evident that there nmust be a new departure from the old beaten track hitherto traveled by the tillers of the soil. From them the wealth of the State comes-without them all would sink to ruin. In advocating their interest, we are advoca:ing the interest of all. Monopolies, for the past ten years, have been fearfully on the increase, and the farmer has to bear the bur (len of them all. Thus the few are enriched at the expense of the many, and it is high time that some counter mnovement against these monopolizers of trade, who are sucking the life blood out of the country, should be made. Already in different portions of our country, our farmers are forming themgelves into associations for mu tual protectiona. It has become ar absolute aecessity; for the concentra tion of capital has become strong that the merchants twist the farmer around their fingers, give what they please for produce, and charge what they please for what they furnish. Hence, the merchants become princes, and farmers their most abject slaves. If this state of things continue, our country must and will plunage into irretrievable, utter, hopeless rain. Hence, we call the attention of our agricultural community to the imtpr tance of combining together for their own protection, their mutual interest, and for the improvement of. their financial condition. Why should they continue to have so many middle men standing be tween them and the consumer of what they produce-who pocket all the profits, and, in turn, still stand between them and the producer of ar ticles which they coasume, thus mak ing a double profit off of the farmer, thus forever keeping their noses to the grinding stone and their backs ever bonding to toil for the benefit of their masters-the merchants. Why not combine together and have your supplies laid at your doors, at wholesale prices, with only the ad ditional seast of carriage, instead of having to bear an additiesal tariff of from 50 to 100 per cent, purchasing eommiseson added, and fem 15 to 25 per cent for advancing Under these circumstances, is it any wgoder that we hear the cry of hard times all over our land? Now, if our farmers would save themselves from these perpetual drains upon their in dustry, they must form themselves in to asseaatioss as patrons of husband ry. Capital is concentrated against them, and they must eoeentrate agalast capital. If things coatinue as they are, apital will eoitine to aeceumulato la the heads of the few, and the rope will he drawn even tighter than now We finod capital eeaeatratod at the great enatres of trade, aued to foster corrupt legila tie, in the passage of bad and oppres sive laws, and eatail the borden of heavy taatioa upon the people, while It eariches the capitalist more and Sgives him greater power to tighten timhe screws. It reains for the tillrs of the aoll to say, whether they will longer sub mit to this degradation of their ma hood. You have sounk thousands of dollars, toiled and labored to recover ftom thim disastrous eects of the war, but yeso are poorer now than whena you bega-t4ho sell still yields her beauty to your bandy craft,--bt where are the fruits of your toil ? where the capital yeo invested to h up yoear shabttered fortunesm and tb avea pstrlmey to yoear ebildre ? . et e lato theeers of the ecp Impoveematsr bre 'atumr ters and planters of the l'ari h of llich land, with whom we are identified, and for whose interest we labor, to form an Association for their protee tion against sharpers and middle men, who have hitherto reaped all the prof. its of their labor, and left them poor indeed. We throw out these hints hoping that some action will be taken by our agricultural community, and some plan of organization adopted, by which this constant and unnecessary drainage of our capital may be pre vented; and that, instead of going to fill the coffers of an already unscrupu lous and bloated Aristocracy, may re main in our midst for the improve ment of all our material interests. Who will take the initiative in this reform ? We pause for a reply. IS IT A SIT TO IOLLOW JE8US IIN BAPTISM 7 RFditrs Rirhlad Brron : T'le Rev. 1). A. CaU'IattS undertook to show thrsngh your rrtltimns in what sense it would be a sin to f.llow Jests in Baptism, explanatory of a remark made by himt in a sermon preached at Alto. From the respect I have for the Rev. Brother as a biblical schol ar anil as a scientific gentleman, I feel great etillilence in ,ndertaking to review this arti cle; and I expect manyly. wo look tip to the aged and respected Brother almost as their lather int the gospel. will think it presumption ill one who has never protelded to be a teach er of sacred things, to undertake to point outi some of the inconsistencies of this studied and well written article, and comtnpare with tile Scriptutres. But, to such I would say, my ob ject is to set tmy readers to thitnkiag, and, be fore passing jtudgmemt,"search the Scriptures." The declaration nmadn- in tile pulpit by Mr. Campbell was new and novel to me, and his explanation at the time was entirely nnsatis factory, but mat more so than tile article which aplwars in tile BlACox. The proposition it self is a fallacy. I will ask Bro. Campbell, if he ever heard a Baptist, or anybody else, contend that it was the duty of a believer to wait until tley were thirty years of age be fore they are baptized? If net, then the propomition is fallacious, it is an argument against something that does not exist. and therefore is calculated to deceive and mislead the unthinking. Whatever is calculated to deceive is wrong. The only logical conclu sion that I can form wherein it wouldl be a sin to follow Jases in baptism, is for an un believer or an unregeserated person to go through the form of baptism, which is no scriptural baptism at all -Mark I1 and 16, Acts 2 and 41. I think my friend will agree with me in this. The pro.osition made by Eld. Campbell that the Baptism of Jet's by John was ia the observance of a ceremoijal or Mosaic rite is not tenable and harmonious with the Scriptures. Aaron and his sons were inducted into the priestly ollce under a specific law according to a speciic form or 3 ceremony, which was conceived, made, plans ed and direeted by God himself, speaking through his servant Mees, who was Gods' prophet and lawgiver, hut not his priest Moses was the chosen of God to bring his people out of Egypt, his obee was of heaven. He made all things aecording to the pattern given him by God. He indusetd Aaron and his sons into the priestly odee with all the rites and eeremonies of the ceremonial law, Lev. 8 and 6, (read the chapter.) The act of obedience ansod the anointing them, secured r unto Aaron and his s0as an everlasting priest I hood throughout their generation, Ex. 40. 15. . The holy oil poured upon the head of Aaron and his sons in inducting them into thepriest ly oice (Lev. 5 and 12.) was typical of the Spirit of God descending like a dove lighting upon him (our Lord,) Mat. 3 and 16. 'The law and the prophets were antil John' &e., I Lke 16 nd 16. The Aeronic psiethood Swas in fkree and efect until Jobhn ame preaehing in the wilderness of Judea. John was a chosen vessel to usher in the new a gospel dispesatios. John was of mirameulous Sconception and birth, Luke 1 and 13, 14, 15, I 6, 17. He was iled wih the Holy Ghost from his mother's womb, La-e 1 sad 44. Joh the Baptist was prophaeed of and his Scoming foretold, Mal. 3 and 1 and 4 and 6, his oiee was foretold, In. 40 ad 3, Mal. 3 and I and S nd 6, he was the chose ofGod to preach repentan.e with the power of the SHoly Ghobes and prepare a people at receive the Messiah and believe on him Mat 3 anad S2, 3. He never was iaducted ai the priat ly orle under the ceremnlal law. Hesever served in the temple as a priest, his dwelling was in the wildernes. He never was hap tsed by ma, his apti was of heaven, r Mat. 1and 24. 5. ll s ofthe trmbeof , Levi, of thseour of AbiaLke1 ad 5,1. e., * Abijah, Chron. 24 and 10, who was a linal dooeadmt of Phisehas who was the asn of Eleasar the of Aaron.

"FOLLOWIIOG JESUS IN BAPTISI." Mrti rs. Editors: An article under the albove caption, in your issue of May 31st, contains some positions which are to me ratl er -ingular and apparently in cenflict with each other as well as with scriptural teaching. 1. What warrant has your correspondent Sfor classing John's Baltismn as a "Mosaic rite ?'t Prn,f. Moses Sttuart, once among the greatest of Presbyterian divines and Professor of Sacred Literature in Andover Theological Seminary, shows conclusively that suaclh an assumption is wholly without scriptural or historical founda tion. He asks the question : "was baptism, a+ an iniatory rite practised in the Jewish church antecedently to the time when chris tian baptism commenced ?" He then enumer ates the ceremonies prescribed by the Mosaic Law in respect to the sacred use of water in ablutions; "(I) washing the clothes only, (2) washing the person, (3) washing both clothes and person, (4) that sprinkling was used a noeat frequently of all by way of purification :and consecration, especially the sprinkling of blood and oil and the water of purillcation or sepa. ration, (5) affusion ofoil was also used in the rites of purification, (6) smearing over w itlm i eil." He then asks: "Do all or any of thomse t examples cast any light upon the christ ian rite of baptism ?"'' and answers: "we may san I swer this question by saying that they seem, at least, to show that there is no trace of alry such rite as baptism, prescribed by the Jewish ceremonial law, as an iniatory rite, i. e., as one which was essential in onler to make a profession of the Jewish religion. It is trite, indeed, that Aaron and his sons were washltd with water, when about to be inducted into r the priest' aAce; Ex. 29, 4 ; Lev. , 6. Bat it is equally true, that this, was only one iof r very numerous rites of induction into that o f. I Se." 2. It is impeesible that John's baptism of · the Savior could have been the ceremony by which he was inducted into the priestly of r flee (1) for the reason given by Prof. Stna rt that washing (which Mr. CAxPBSLL evidently Sdeires to identify with baptism) "was onl? , one of very numerous rites of induction int, - that oice," (2) bteaase Jasuc was a "Priest: a forever after the order of Melchizedec." Melchizedee was certainly not inducted intc. the priesthood by baptism, but was made a. priest of God without the concurrence or sane a tie of any guess human authority. Your cor respondent concludes : "The baptism of Jrsva f therefore was the fulfillment of a positive and specific le, and that fulfillment conferred up oun him all the power of Priesthood and ser vice in the Temple. In the exercise of that power he enaemed the Temple and drode out those who made his Father's homue a house of r mesebandise. When the chief priest came forward, and demanded his authority for thus execising the powerm of a Priest in the Tenm pie, saying: "By what authority doest thou I these thingsp ?" J3ss amwerd: "I also will ask you one question, answer me, and I will Stoll you by what authority I do these things; r the baptism of John, was it from heaven or Sof men '-"Herse Jote referred directly -e' the baptium of John for the authority of aeting Sas Priest in the Temple; thas smustaining thm Spsitiesa that his baptism by John was a sregl a alar indeuction into the Prieslthood according: ,to the Momic law of ceremoiea." Your eor 1 respondent old have quoted the context I with J3m's answer to the chief priets and a elders: "And they reasoned with themselve, a saying, If we shall say, from heaven; he will I my am us, why'did ye not believe him ? c But it we shall say, of men; we fear the peo Spi for all held J am a prephat. And they e awoed JImrl ad mid, We eannet telL SAnd he sailum dthem, Neither tell I pn QIp ,what Sathrity I doe t thisi." In the J Irst place, you orrepedene semas to cu. tradict the Savior's last words iLa this coanaeo II tioen by explaining that in asking the Jews Scancerniag Jehm. baptism he shdre plainly a that he ais actmlng a priesat in the Temple by a virtue of the power cenmatered upon him by a that baptism In the senod place yer cor respeudemat claims that Jastwnas inducted in a a th Prieshood "nordilng so the Memie law Sef(eemonim f" and yet admits that he wasa I priset ate the order of Mlchizedee, ofwhem a the Scripture saith : "he was without hater, -without niother, without descent, having a neIler begianing of days nor end of life; but . mad lke atmthe Smn of God; abideth a a prlet contineally." Jasaa dmeeet was na e onmed fem the Seas Levi, he was net . enlld afer the eder o Aaose, "Per it is evi r. dent thato ard spnllg eat of Juda; of t which tribe Menes spake thng ceaernering a priaesthd.

John was surprised ait JKst's" deanmald of baptism from himl. for tihe aplpalent reasonf that his haptliml was unlto relpntalce and ilie remcognized Jrsts , as the Me-.-iah. John evidently was puzzled f to knlow what tile ordinanclle would meanl when administered to tie Sonl of God. Had tilis rile tbeen tile ceremoiy of his induction, into thle priest's iflic', the Mosaic ceremonial of his investmeniit with "power as a priest in the Temple," John could not have hesitate I or doubted concerning the propriety of its ad mninistration. Not one eof a number of stand ard commentators with whom I am acquaint ed entertain your correspondlents views which seem so utterly against the Scripture and self-contr.dlico*ry. 4. As to the mode of John's administration of the rite, the Levitical ceremonial of sprink ling "water of purifying" has nothing to do. No Irofessedly evangelic denomination uses the "water of purifying" either in sprinklings or immersions. See directions for preparing the "water of pnrifying.'" Numbers 19; 1-11. If the christian rite of baptism be a continua tion of the ordinance administered under tihe persotal directions of Jsrs, by him received from John, and by him received as a Mosaic right, then there ought also to be used in the rights of initiation and indluetion, tihe other sprinklings of oil and blood; then are we un der the law and not under the gorpel, in the Jewish and 11ot in tihe Christian chburch. But the old has lassed away anid we are under the new and better dispensation. Among those who declare emphatically that Jr.a's was immersed "in Jordan", en to Jordanr, are John Calvin, the very founder of Presby terianism, John Lightfoot, who figured as an eminent Presbyterian l)ivimne in the Westmin ster Assembly, A. D., 0143, John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, George Whitfield, an eminent associate with the Wesleys and a wonderful preacher, James Mac Knight, a learned Presbyterian divine and commenta. tor, Thomrns Chalmers, once Prof. of Theol. in SUniversity of Edinburg, Scotland, a most dis tinguished Presbyterian divine, besides a nu merous host of the very brightest authorities in the learned world. Concerning "follow ing Jasm's in baptism," the Venerable Bede of Britain says: "No one of the greeter per sonages has disdained to be baptized into the remmission of sins by my humble ministry when he has called to mind that the Lord, who baptizing in the Holy Spirit, is accustom edl to forgive sins, submitted his own head to the hands of a servant to be baptized in water." "Follow me," says Jsss, "He that doeth my will loves me." Respectfully, A BAPTaT. e-.----5 " - "LORENA." We publish the beautiful lines of this dear old song.
