SKDAMA, Mo. Dec. ICdi 1870. EDITOR gave my views in opposition" to the use of the Bible in our Public Schools, iu a former issue of your paper, I expected nn answer from somebody, but in the same spirit that I started out. Had not "Pub- lic Schools" belter lay aside that grand "nom de plume1' for one more salient, for I advocate (genus ine) Public schooh besides all that is good and noble. In Public Schools I recognize the foundations of ncK vanced civilization; it is the (bogus) "Public Schools" I would attack. In his reply, lie much of Mrs. claims (hat she reminds me very Partingtoii, who "novei- opens her mouth but what she gets her foot in it." lie starts out "that maur tiierc arc who nre behind the prison walls, not (rue, but they have forfeit- ed their freedom byj committing crime. Accept freedom in the prop- er sense for which it is intended, if you please. Free speech Aye, it is a right guaranteed us by the Con- stitution, und indulged in in .spile of the howls of narrow minded fimat- uumher of the that were iu- ics. Free conscience and free reli- jured have died, nnd one of Ihe cir- cus company died at Galveston from the effects of hiit wounds." Soldiers of tho Mexican War. There will be a mceiing of the sol- diers of the Mexican War ut Chilli- cothe, Mo., on Friday, December 20, 1S73, commencing at 10 o'clock, n. m. The object of the tueetiuj; is to fur- ther the interests of the soldiers of said war, iu being placed or. an equal footing with soldiera of (he war of 1812 and tho late war.

The Laniar Independent relates a rather unpleasant Kcene which lalu- ly occurred in that town Quite u Httlc incident occurred on our streets Thursday. A lady drove up in liuggy, got up to a young man, presented u pistol nt his head, and holding a baby about ten mouths old in her arms, suld "Here, lake (his baby and maintain It; It Is If you do not J will blow your brains out." Tho young uinn very coolly told her lie would do as she wished him, and held out his. hands us if ;to take the baby, Hrheu Ihe woman lowered tho pistol, lie seized her by the hand which held it, and led her to Tucker Logan's office and delivered her over to tho town Marshal. iSho soon evidently found that she was in Ihe wronj; box and left town as soon an opportu- nity presented. It is supposed .that designing par- lies were ai. the bottom of the suheme, and lo extort money was the object.' Heating C. C.

K it I EC K H A us AliKOi gion A thousand times aye, so long as you cimuot control the el- ements, and prevent the coming of seasons in their proper time, so long can you not guide the nlterings of my conscience. In modern times we are taught that God is love, and nre not, driven lo Him as formerly, for fear of smelting after death. 1 deny Unit wo nre a Christian land, we are governed hy a Constitution framed by men who were good and true, and that says "all men arc horn frco and ccjual." "Public School" would fasten on me tho ad- vocacy of free loristn, polygamy and nil oilier free irrcligio'n. Could you discover anything of the kind iu my last article ain't "Public School'' scaring at hia own shadow? Have J not ndvncnlcd the contrary in ad- vising a good moral training in Pub- lic Schools. So far as the (rue mor.il standard is concerned, and in being good peaceable citizens, I will not allow "Public Schools" or any one1 else to ouulii me in Ihe admiration of the 13iblc to its 1 did not speak claimed tlv.il the when 1 umgncd proper place, against it, for I Uiblc had shed a greater blessing on humanity thai) any other book writ- ten, but I did not (hink it ought (.v be forced on (hose that do not think so. We arc not a strictly Christian people, and that the Bible, is used in our Schools, Court.--, in our Legisla- tive and Congressional Halls is nil innovation not Constitution. warnuiled "Public by tliu School" claims that perhaps one half of all the children who attend our Public.'. Sclnols and whoso piircnU are mil Catholics, Jews or Pagans, do mil have the Bible read at liomc; in thut ca5C they Iiavo poor Christian homes indeed, and I very much fear that their religious training will be sadly neglected if they have to depend on it from what they get at school; bull would advise them to go to Sunday a good pro- vision nnd where (he Bible properly belongs. In conclusion arid in, to "Public closing sentiment, I would say thnl.it sounds very much ike the defunct know-nothing doc- tlic ignominious death it deserved long ago hia ndvicu to ieck the government better suited to their taste is n little regarded ns that brain IIPS influence, thhfcihcnnlcd it.
