I FOURTH EDITION. Globe's" Regular hor- eign Budget of Specials. Arabs and Bedouins. We have been severely reprimanded by certain good people for allowing fidel's'' letter to appear in these col- umns, and we hasten to explain that if people were not desiron.- of reading just such bold declarations, ;he objec- tionable letter would never have ap- peared. While we arc not an infidel onr.-elf. we have no particular contempt lor a man that is. for if we have read it aright, the constitution of the United States guarantees to every man the boo" of h'tically or religious- ly just a- nc pleases. Believing, as we do. that any infidel argument can be -uceessfully met, we consider it a petty display of intolerance to brow-beat un- belie'versinto silence, for if their argu- ments arc not met in public, they will not be met around bar-room stoves and olliee desk-. There a beaten track in journalism that we wish to avoid. Take up a doz- en dilierent papers from a- many differ- ent quarters of the globe, and the simi- larity i? striking. There is a column or two of telegraph, compiled by the -ame man there is a column or two of local, speaking of the weather, what tine drinks a certain dealer set-- up. what an elegani. ac.rre.-s .somebody i-. and a good fellow a man is who has jn-t regi-tered at the leading hotel: a column or two of editorial respecting the currency.

They haven't got the moral comvgc to boldly declare, what i< a notoriou- fact, tiiat the good boy frequently turn.- out bad. and the bad boy good. Our experience ha- been that a news- paper very much resembles an individ- ha- its faults and bad influences, and should be received with the same grain of charity. Therefore, if an indi- vidual i- allowed to di.-cti-s religion, why not accord the newspaper the same privilege? We had much rather an infidel preach in a newspaper where all alike can judge of hi- ideas, than to see him sow his bis bad seed where good inlliiences i-.nu.ot reach it. not knowing of it.- existence. We have always been on the side of religion more because we believe it to be the best, way than because we proved it theoretically true. We have in our minds-eye a young man who commenced life very much as we did. except that he was not given to world- ly follies, and whose daily walk and conversation was the admiration of all church .deacons. While we spent our evenings in having a "good lie spent his in reading and study. He be- came thorough where we had only a smattering; he hail better health, felt better, and now that we think of the matter candidry. we believe that he had a much better time than we did. More than this, lie .-avcd his money, and is now cashier in one of the best banks of a neighboring State. We believe him to be one of the be-t Christians we ever j knew, as well as one of the be-t fellows, i TUp and we honestly admire, and respect his religion. On the other hand, we have never known infidelity to accomplish anything but evil for a man. It makes him a rabid cynic, for one thing, and he grad- ually, in pure opposition to the bible, sets up a code of moral.- of his own. and thus tails to practice some very beautiful les-on-and precepts from eon-; Queen Victoria about to Abdicate trarincss. While we have no contempt for an unbeliever, neither have we admiration. The best and truest men he have ever known were either professed Christians, or practiced a great many of the Chris- tian graces on tne sly. and we shall al- ways give Christianity credit for that. We have never known infidelity to make a man generally respected and tru-ted j in a community, but we have known Christianity to do it in a great many in- stances. 'Old Reliables."

What a sad calamity it would lie to the country were Young America in- timidated by the cry of "I'Id .Reliable." There would be very little competition in monetary, commercial or political affairs.
