   Racine Daily Journal (Newspaper) - September 16, 1859, Racine, Wisconsin                                RACTlE VOL. II. AILJUOFRNAL DAILY JOURNAL. RACINE. WIS.. FRIDAY MORMWrk 1K FRIDAY MORNING, SEPT. 16, 18S9. TDK GHBAT EASTESN" monster ship is to sail from London for Portland, Maine, next Wednesday, and the preparations for the event, both at the start- ing place and at the port of her expected ar- rival, are actively going forward. The Eng- lish people appear to have some very serious doubts as to her ability to get down the riv- er Thames, in which she now lies, into the sea. Tho city government of Portland, Mo., has made special arrangements to honor the arrival of the monster steamship. Tho pro- gramme includes a public dinner, a grand ball and military display and other manifes- tations of rejoicing. There will be a great crowd there from all parts of our country to welcome her. She will probably arrive at Portland, if no accident happens, in about one week after starting. LOCAL MATTERS. NATIONAL FAIB AT Chicago papers come to us filled with at counts of the great National Fair. It is i decided success. The freu and Tribune of an arena, yesterday morning says that on Wednesday all the departments on the Fair ground were full. Tho great cavernous halls that I loomed up large, and gave promise of over-abundance of space within their were filled with everything that fancy could wish, or necessity desire. They also esti- mate the crowd that visited the ground that dny at between thirty and forty The following examiaations and award of pi-omiums will take place to-day The JWks Steam appears did not give the Executive Committee much satisfaction, at the late Illiuois Fair. They commenced testing it in the morning, and tried it nearly all day, but it plowed only thten minutes out of the whole time. For the rest of she day, the wheels of tho' loco- motive part simply revolved, and at one time, where it was plowing six inches deep the machine broke down. The committee did not confer the prize on it, but gave the inventor oan thousand dollars. O'CLOCK. Own, .Steers and Glass No. Bullocks Class No. Cows and Heifers. PI.C, XT o O'CLOCK.

The dispute waxed warmer and warmer, until at length tlie boy struck his female companion, who in turn, began to wngo war by pulling -his hair, He thought it time to interfere, and began to expostulate with them in re- gard to their conduct. In the course of the conversation, he said to the little girl "you should not do so; you should return a kiss for a blow; how much better it would be' would it With contrition in her heart, and humility in her looks, she replied sir, it would; but, finks, sir, when I kiss Tom for this, I hope a bit o' skin will come away wid it 1" How like a great deal of the forgiveness in this world, is the above! A. little ofjbe old bile is almost always left. PaESEiu-i: TUB friend sug- gested to us the other day the 'propriety of calling tho attention of tho people, the far- mers particularly, to the fact that the.United titatos census vrill be taken next year. This being the case, if every ono would take par- ticular note of the number of bushels of each kind of grain he raises, as threshing is done for instance, and so on of each produce at. a time when all the facts are Iresh, and note them down, to be referred to when the agent comes around, it would not only facilitate the business of taking the census, but what would be still better, it would be more relia- ble. The present harvest is ono if reported MB. EDITOR few would like to place of meeting, where, should the spirit move any one to speak, they might have a free sermon and free questionings as of old, when Christ declaimed his lay sermons to common people, who questioned that they might understand; and that Gospel which will not bear questioning is not worth preach- ing, much less paying for. I, for one, believe that good may come out of every Nazareth or community, and that it is not necessary to hire flfty dollar lecturers or thousand dollar clergymen, to teach the Gospel of Humanity or "glad tid- ings" to all mankind. Christ neither taught sectarian creeds nor doctrines, but practical benevolence an.d universal 'Love is the fulfilling of tho "by this shall men know that yo arc my Disciples, that ye love one "do aj you would e done "Overcome evil with la was no worshipper of books, days, or .ws, but his service was devoted to teaching and healing man; ho was no Doctor of Di- inity, for in those Divinity needed no Doctoring. He'neither graduated at a college, nor was he ordained by the laying on of yet multitudes profited by his teach- ings, and the sick were healed by himself and his followers, whom he told to go into all the world and preach the Gospel, and heal the sick; and in these days of debt and difficulty, such a Gospel and such healing would be singularly multi- tudes cannot now affoid preaching at pres- ent prices, especially when healing is not included. Why is the command to heal the sick dis- obeyed, when even the manner was specified laying on of Why do Three Days from New York. This is indeed a fast and anybody foolish enough to deny it had better consult Edward McEnery, 138 Main cstrct, who has received from New York by American Ex- press in seventy-two hours, a large and beautiful stock of Paris and Lyon's dress silks, which he will be able to retail at fully twenty-five percent below last spring's pri- ces.

The best way to serve a good parent is to make his children happy. Did not Christ always speak of God as "our Father Was not his service to make all happy This needed no book to reveal it, or hireling min- istor to explain it. Can there be a "Gospel" that is not "Free." Who that hath a mes- sage to mankind, overflowing with love and good will, that came as free to him as the sunshine or.air, or the broad earth should be, would rnnko'u morchandiso of that Gos- pel, and bargain for its revelation. True, it is too-.much to expect one to do nil tun preaching, and too little for a congre- gation to depend on one teacher. Then let us cultivate the lore of Truth, the love of teaching and the love of man, and we shall soon find plenty of teachers and a Gospel without money and without prico.
