social life, for what is wisest in govern- (
ment and what is strongest and most!

Plymouth's history that was heard with
much interest, lie called particular
attention to the adversities with which
this city lias had to struggle, to frequent
disasters and set-backs which would

munity had risen to every emergency
and among other things had built and
rebuilt the city and built it again follow

recited how, after business had been

not only revive their business bu . to

I am one of those who have profound
respect for the doctrine of of (iod in his
tory. As He takes care of individual,
so does He take care of the interest of
nation; and when in povenshed India,
degraded spiritually and morally, look
ed with tears, in her eyes towards the
omnipotent Father, He out of the riches
of His inexhaustiable mercy, came for
ward relieved her, even as in times gone
bv he had rescued other people. In the
course of time England felt the respon
sibility of her position as the rulers of
India, became connected with her in
the closest ties of political moral ami
spiritual relitionship. A stream was
opened which connected England and
India intellectually, morally, socially,
an;l religiously and all the refined liber
al ideas of the West came through this
great channel into India, it is beginning
to work vvonderous changes. There are
signs of new life an all sides in India,
from the Himalayas to Cape Carmern
you see a new nation rising up as it
were, with new aspiration holier and
loiter thoughts, persuits, and specula
tions. When we came to receive
English education in your schools and
colleges, we learn to respect your Wash
ington, Shakespear, Milton, Newton
and now 1 may say that in some nieas
ure, they have became our own. We
sympathize with you, in all you intel
lectual persuits and speculations, your
religion, your philosophy and science
are ours Thus we are one in thought.
It is not merely the same government,
that rules us. It is not merely the same
generous hearted and the noble sov erign
whose sway we all acknowledge, but we
are at the same time one in heart and
thought; religiously united. We are
intellectually united. When 1 say long
live American Christian nation. 1 feel
that my words are revebreted through
out the length and breadth of India,
and that all my educated country, men,
join with me in wishing prosperity and
success; from which we have received
so many rich blessings.
Christianity has already achieved
wonders in correcting prejudice and
dispelling the ignorance of my country.
Fngland's intellectual conquests in
India are of a remarkable character,
just as on a line morning the mists are
gradually dispt lied by the rising sun so
in India the mists of ignorance and pre
judice are being scattered away by the
dawning light of English khowledge
and Christian religion. Western literi
ture, and science. The work of mater
ial prosperity has also vastly advanced.
The railways and telegraphs. Those
great pioneers of civilization, have al
ready commenced their work, and are
showering upon the people advantages
and blessings of which they could form
no idea, a century ago. On all sides the
iiiexhaustable physical resources of the
cjuntry are being developed and al
though India is rich and has made many
rich. There is a great future before her
of vast material prosperity and ag
grandizement, nor has India been in
active in the matter of social reforma
tion. Hut English education has al
ready proved a tremendous power. The
Hindoos who have received a liberal
education find it impossible to retain
Iiis allegiance to caste, ami although
many, through fear of man, do not
practically carry out their princi
ples. Their convictions are deep.
Their customs of premature mar
riage and practice of polygamy had
long been acting banefully in India;
but the influence of Christian religion
has tended to operate most powerfully.
The grandest achievement ol all, how
ever is the moral, and religions reform
ation of the country.
I was born a Brahmin, by brith, and
in my early days, I though and felt and
lived as a llrahmin going through all
the rights and ceremonies ot idolatry. 1
never embraced ilrahminism from hon
est and deliberate conviction, but lived
as a llrahmin priest, because my par
ents did so ami my ancestors from
generation to generation had done so
far in many agos. In course of time
my native education upset my faith and
niide me feel that idolatry was a false
hood and abomination in the sight of
good. It did not cost me much effort
to renounce the errors and prejudices,
in which my fore fathers indulged, for
as I grew in Oriental literature and
philosphy. 1 felt 1 was intellectually
and morally constrained to set my face
against idolatry and its concomitant
errors. I speak to you throgh these
lines as a converted Erahmin. 1 believe
you expect from me a few words on this
subject in its bearings on my country,
India. I therefore feel justified in writ
ing, but this is not my only justiticat ion,
my nationality oilers a more cogent pleai
which I may use in self defence. I be
long to the Aryan race, a race remark
able for absteminousness and well
known in the world as a simple, quiet,
peace, loving people, who are not
addicted to strong intoxicating liquors.
I come from India a land which is
inhabitated by the mighty Hindoos,
who love peace, who have an innate
aversion and repugnance to war and
hostility. 1 may therefore say I was
bom a lover of peace. I am happy to
say in peace and the conversion of the
heait. The lirst lesson God taught me
was that it was His will that 1 should
pray, when no book brought me any
comfort and no man rendered me any
assistance whatever (Iod in the
mysterious ways of Previdence pointed
out to me the indispensable necessity of
cultiuating a habit of daily prayer;
preserved in that (iodly habit and" with
in a few months found that there was
strength in my heart and abounding
joy, and wisdom and purity. Under
the guidance of the spirit of Christ I
came into contact with many books
which were very profitable and inter
esting to me, and among these was the
Christianj'Scripture. 1 began to pray
with more earnestness and sincerity. 1
felt with David in the spirit of his
Psalm, and responded the exortation of
Christ, and 1 entered into communion
with Paul. Thus I went on for many
months, growing in grace, in faith and
in purity. Let us consider who is it l
have professed the name of the Hindoo
lteformer? Why is it that though 1
do not take the name, "Christian"?
Hut I still persevere in offering my
hearty thanksgiving to .lesus Christ.
Ah! 1 r.iust thank Hrahmmism for that.

I5rahmins drank up the whole of the
Pacific and Atlantic, and the whole of

There is a judge in Madison county
named Ellison, who has waded into tlie
whitecap element at Scattertield, until
at the present time two of the would-be
law operators are doing time in Michi
gan City. There are also four or five
indictments hanging over the heads of
the remaining four who were implicated
in this contemptible business.
It finally became so warm for them
that the prosecuting attorney, who it
appears was in syinpathey with them,
refused to prosecute the case.s Tlie
judge without any ado disposed of him
and appointed another prosecutor, who
is now pushing the work.
