(No. 3.) bumming up the feeble attempts which our clerical friend -Jms made to refute our arguments, thus far set forth, we find nothing which in the leust invalidate.? the force of our tes- timony against the Bible being of ".Divine origin" in a sense from any other book which contains both truth nud error. Tnc truth which any book contains, is true; not because it is in that book butbe- cnusc it is true. "We desire our rend crs to particularly understand that wo have no combat with the truths ofthe Bible, but -with the errors which arc taught from it; and where Jlio mail of sense who" dares claim lo eugugo the attention of n rational- ist a moment. Xo genuine stu- dent of science now endorses it in a scriptural sense. Elder AValkcr, in liis evident desire to get rid of the Bible discussion, persists in assaults on Spiritualists and Spiritualism, hoping thereby to divert us from our subject. In this he exhibits somcthi'g ofthe cunning of the quail, which to prevent the discovery of hc'r nest, and the destruction of her young, jnakcs a terrible fluttering and feign- ing to be wounded, leads the intru- der in nn opposite direction.

Hero wo Imvo an Htifuldiiigund glotious revelation from Hie source of all lerrestrial and lunai lieat, this wondrous body to which we owe both light and life is one of God's Hooks which is ever open and not yivcu to n special sect or race, but like his Providence ex- tended "to all in nil." And yet an- other nnd grander revelation "is ours from thut old fountain of light which spectrum analysis reveals. It is (his: The sun nnd even llic stars htivc'bccn found to contain tho same chemical constituents which we have on this earth, nnd those who read this by the light of science unite in the opinion tliat this, world is the child of Ihe sun, thrown oft1 in vapor and con- densed and thus pre- pared by ils careering nmong the stars for cycles of centuries fornmu's habitation'. Prof. Tyndall says that ovcry lire that burns' and every llame thaj glows dispenses light anil heat, which originally belonged lo Ihc sun, that tliei-e is not a hummer raised, n wheel turned, or a shuttle thrown, that is not raised, nud turned, and thrown by the sun. Revelations of this character found in the grcnt Book of living Imrmon- iy.c tvilh flic possibilities and logical deductions of other books of God's writing. But on tho other hand, the Bible shows ils fallibility nnd human oiigin iu numberless ways; as in Gen. 1-14, 15, where Ihc.sun is not made until the fourth day, all now know llmt '.tis tho sun which makes the days. We can give hundreds of similar blunders both in history and science which the 13ible contains but will defer them forlhep'.-esentand will icsumc the subject of Bible chronology. Mr. Walker says "we ILTVC access to old manuscripts some of which arc- marred age, and arc without dale.'1 This is the style of argument resorted to by our friend for the pur- pose of disproving our statement that the oldest Hebrew manuscripts n re only iiinc hundred years "Old manuscript.? withoutdalel" In- deed, what miserable The Elder isiustly entitled to ap'lace beside the Church Father, Ircneus, who fabricated the "four Gospels1' nnd convinced the ignorant doctors of his laith, that there were four gos- pels and no more, because the earth had quarters and the chcrubims had four faces. It might be well to state here (hat Irencus first intro- duced the four Gospels 150 years af- ter Christ and on his own authority. Dr. of England, accuses this old Prios_t of having deceived the world ilh false and lieing narra- tions. '-Even Mohamet maintained the inspiration of Moses.'' Misera- ble subterfuge! "vTlien we behold n Christian minister driven toMoham- ct to sustain his tottering dogmas, we are led to exclaim verily, ing men will catch at straws.' "The Egyptian, Fhccnicinii, Greek nnd Ko- niaii authors concur in respect lo the Creation, Fall of Man, the Deluge, and the dispersion of Here Mr. Walker resorts to the opin- ions of unenlightened nations and n fuiiuloiia nge to these miserable dogmas of his faith which arc repudiated by Ihe enlightened devotees of science in all countries. Even the most enlightened Christian geologists of theagehavc repudiated the idea ofa universal deluge, whilst flic known laws of Hydrostatics prove Ihc impossibility "of such an water in connec- tion with our planet if condenscS and brought to the surface would not reach an altitude of more than about 33 feet above the level of the ocean, leaxiug the mighty ranges of tains belting the earth still far, far above the highest As to the "fall of man" too absurd case, the nest of the biid with her young is nt in the other, it is :he bread and butter of the Priest- hood. In the cnsc of the. bii-d, the wounding is feigned, but with the Sldcr it is real. One thing at n lime, Mr. Walker; we nre not arguing Spiritualism HOW have not done with the Bible question yet. When we get through with the" Old Bible we will then take up the New Testa- ment nnd nftci- having cleared away the debris which hns been accumu- Inting for thousands of rears, we shall proceed to rear, n, beautiful su- upon Intuition. j REED LOSEY. [To be Continued] Indianapolis Letter. INDIANAPOLIS, July 7 1870. EDS. So much has been written from lu- dinnapolis and so frequently have her varied interests been discussed through Ihe pnpcrs, Hint perhaps your readers are beginning lo think that we Indiaiinpolitans, with our Chicago neighbors, have go no mad over the wonderful growlh of our city Now we are not disposed to bo classed among cnthusinsls, yon will therefore allow us to leave the imag- inary work of city building lo our more speculative friends and con line ourselves lo a few fuels to which our attention has been cnllcd, which nre of vaster importance lo the commu- nity at large thnn the growth of n single city. In other words, if you please, wo will dcvolc ourselves to what might, be termed a medical loiter. A large number of the poisons we meet now-n-dsiys nre suffering to n greater or less degree from Catarrh, Ihc natural icndcnr.y of which, is towards consumption; yet, thc'rcforc in mentioning1 ofDrs.

Upon examination, by the Laryn- goscope, if the throat or upper part of (lie windpipe is found diseased the medicine selected is brought into direct contact with the affected part, by means of delicate If upon a careful examination of Iho Lungs, we find them diseased, then a Gum Elastic Tube is used, and the medicine introduced into the Lungs, coming into direct contact with the affected portions, thereby the diseased mass, in which state it is ejected from the Lungs, and nature is left to repair the damage. If remote parts of the Lungs arc implicated, and cannot be reached by these mean.-, then Inhala- tion is used. By Inhalation as many may suppose, is not meant any par- ticular remedy, prescription lor- mnla it is composed of many differ- ent remedies, and the source from which they arc selected is a Hold no less ample, than the entire langc of the Malerin Mcdica. To make a prescription, then, we must avail ourselves of such i erne- dies ns arc calculated to answer the peculiar indications in each individ- ual case. For example, we find on administering an Emeljc, Purgative or Opiate by the stomach, that ench produces a different result, though all are taken in the same manner, and pass into the same organ; precisely so withlnhalalion. One class of In- halation is prescribed to soothe irri- tation and quiet the cough; another, to facilitate expectoration; a third, to arouse and stimulate the enfeebled condition of the paits; n. fourth, to promote absorption, and the removal of .Tubercular deposits; a fifth, to astringc or shrink upon the parts, as is required in ulccratioii; and a sixth, to obviate the condition of spasms as is indicated in Spasmodic Asthma. From this we learn that it is. not alone sufficient to inhale the proper remedies; suited to each condition and peculiarity of case. The various operations and modes of ticiilnient spoken of, although they may appear somewhat novel to many persons, arc not only perfectly safe, but the patient usually experi- ences very litlle inconvenience from them. This system not only embraces all that is valuable in Inhalations of Medicated Vapor and but applications of far greater utility and importance. The treatment is not only local, but constitutional, and, yet Ihe end is attained without much medicine. By the peculiar manner of addressing the cuialivc ngcnts directly lo the diseased parts, then by constitiuional'mcans modi- fying and correcting the morbid se- cretions, permanent cure? are speedi- ly affected. This system of treatment is rapid- ly obtaining among the more advanc- ed physicians of the age, and as a re- sult we find that diseases that in former years were considered incur- able, now yield rapidly under the hand of ndvmcing science. Still an- other class of diseases, delicate in themselves and delicate lo be spoken of, but to which one half of our race are exposed, arc those peculiar to fc- milcs. From the vast amount of misery arising from these diseases we take it thttt if any good can be ac- complished by speaking of them, it is eminently proper to do so. The great question that comes up in the minds of those suffering from either of the class of diseases above mentioned is: To whom shall we go in order to secure proper treatment? And many from a fear of falling iiilo the hands of incompetent practition- ers, neglect their diseases entirely until it is loo lo effect a Ihe various hospitals for the purpose ofgcltihg'nll the neV ideas thatliavc been brought to light in the treat- ment of the diseases of the throat nncl lungs, nasal cnlanh, etc. The Dr. has sustained an eminent replication ns a general practitioner, nnd'cspe- cially in connection with this class of surgical and medical diseases for a number of by tho cour.se lie has adopted Of making visits to the chief hospitals :md conversing with eminent men, he keeps up with the demands of his varied and exten- sive piacticc. Dr. Burnham, senior I partner, who makes Diseases of Wo-1 men a specialty, also makes n similar visit. Dm ing the early part of the past winter he attended tho course of instruction of Dr. Storer, of Bos- ton, on discnscs of women, the only course of a Minilnr character given in America, and is, fhcieforo, (hor- ongly posted in thk of diseases. Dr. Bin-nlium hns enjoyed n lending practice in this city for (he past ten years, and thu'refore, w irtely and favorably known, and needs no spe- cial ciidorseinpnl; still, MT take pleas urc in recommending him. well as his partner, Dr. Tisd.ilc. There are plenty of quacks in the country, and il is a relief lo the nflliclcd to know where to find n scienlin'e phy- sician. right nnd that everybody else is wrong. "The more unlearned and ignorant they are, tho more bigolry illiberally of views do thoy dis- play. I once heard of one of these per- sons, (he claimed to be a preacher) while dogmatically asserting his views of scripture, say substantially that those who did not accept nnd believe tho gospel as he did, (that mount nil denominations but his own) could not bo saved, they would suro- ly be lost, lie did not say "Thin ts as I understand Use but "I know it to be so." Thus claiming for very modest infallibility. Both this fellow and his discourse, would be difficult to describe.

Of course, the majority of worshippers arc women, nnd they come fluttering forlh in the brightest of glit- tering and glowing and radiant col- ors.

There are la- dies in that procession who display, from their Hashing feather to their dainty shining booU of bronze, every gaudy color which would show it- self in a kaleidoscope. 'Looking down on tliat radiant, quick glancing stream of colors, one almost fancies he is gazing upon a field wJth daz- zling tropical insects, or the flight of a colony of gorgeous birds.

The spirt which he inaugurated was not the gentle spirit of pence, so characteris- tic of the Gospel, but the spirit of strife nnd contention. Oi course there was a class of per- sons who do not think for themselves thnt nre easily induced to become nnd nfter listening to' bis "vain babblings" in which they were exhorted to '-'contend earnestly" for the "form of nnd h.iving their prejudices and passions excited, they were ready lo attack any one they should meet, and not long wo'd it be till they would succeed in dis- gusting any oue who held views different from their own, and it was plainly to be seen that the latter stage of those persons wag worse than the former. A few citations from the of our hero and this paragraph is done At each nnd every succeeding time of his visitation he failed not to re- count ihe wonderful adventures of Philip nnd the cunuuh, and always With the same vivacity and freshness of n tnlc that had never been As an illustration of his power of analysis, we give the .following ex- nmplc. Taking a paasage from Paul's letter to Timothy, which rends thus: "Study to show thyself, ap- proved n workman that nccdclh not to be nshnmcd, rightly dividing the word of truth." He proceeded to explain the latter clause, tiae divid- ing of Ihc woid. He staled that if lie couldn't "divide the word" any belter than some preachers did, he would quit. He then proceeded with the division. The four Gospels, ifntthcw, Mark, Luke and John, ho placed in Ihe firsl They simply told what Christ did while heie upon earth. The next divison was the Acts ihc Apostloa, That IcIK how people were made chris- tians in those days, how they ought to be in these. The third division .ill the Epistlrs. They tell how to do when one has become a Christian. Fourth division, the Ec- velntions, telling what is yet to That he considered to he "rightly dividing the word." He certainly has a right 10 divide it that way if he wants to, but some of us obtuse fellows couldn't see much use of h. As often, however, a? he told about the clinuch he "di- vided the word." Lastly, finally, conclusively, we give him the credit of being honest in his views, we think him to be sin- cere, indeed, all fanatics arc desper- ately in earnest. But what egotism, how can it be endured? Behold what impudence! llust it be tolerated an idiot! What a mountebank! "What a bore!

Social Depravity. A correspondent of tho Si. Louis Times gives the following startling illiiblrnlion of morals nmong Ihc so- cnllcd respectable socialy of New York.

In one ol Ilicsc cases, just de- cided in Ihc city, the husband wns proved guilty o'f over thirty nets of adultery in sin being "respectable married women." There is no denying.Uic fnct that n great deal of (he "respect- able" society of Xew York is rotten ju this particular respect. JJnrilal inconslnncy is not the rule, of course, but it form's a fearfully Inrge e.xcep- tion." And Die mar.ncr in which lliousands of well-to-do people live i1? mainly responsible for il.

It is only rarely, per- haps, thnt the iufide ity of Ihc wife, is discovcicd, nnd then, unless a di- .vprce suit In ings on esposurc, her disgrace is known only by n few im- 'iiicdinle friends of Ihccoiiple. This particular phase of immorality is steadily indenting in Nc w even permeates lo some very highest social circles. A Dream of Haymaking.
