Heaven.1 a heaven presided Over by such a Demon As that who has been peopling this world with millions of human beings and then sweeping them off into hell not like dead Hies but without taking the trouble even to kill them and gloating and laughing Over their eternal misery is not such a heaven As i want to go to. The doctrine is too horrible. I cannot believe it and i won t. They say the saints in heaven Are so Happy that they do not mind the torments of the damned in hell but what sort of saints must they be who could be Happy while looking Down upon the horrors of the bottomless pit they Don t mind they re Safe they to Happy a a what would the Mother think of the sixteen years old daughter who when her infant was lying Clead in the House should come dancing and singing into the parlor and exclaim a of i m so Happy Mother i Don t care for the dead baby in the coffin would she not be shocked and so with this doctrine and by the blood of Christ i denounce it by the wounds in his hands and his Side i abhor it by his groans and agony i abhor and denounce it As the most hideous Nightmare of the Borax mines of Nevada a valuable discovery. Many of the most wonderful and valuable discoveries and inventions both ancient and modern have been accidental. Notable instances will be readily called to mind by the intelligent Reader not Only of the discovery of Gold and other mines of great value but also the germs of such in at and useful arts and inventions As printing steam electricity and various kinds of mechanism. Among the modern and indeed recent discoveries of great value to Mankind one in our country is particularly noteworthy. It. Is that of the discovery of a mine or vast bed of Borax by w hich a most useful and necessary article instead of being an expensive luxury As formerly is rendered so cheap As to bring it within the Means of All classes. This remarkable discovery was made in Esmeralda county nev., some four years ago by a Young Man who was prospecting for Gold and Silver mines. While thus engaged traversing mount Ains canons and valleys on horse Back he saw in a Valley known As Teel s Marsh what appeared to be a vast bed of White Sand resembling dry sea foam. The appearance was so novel and singular that he dismounted and descended to Prospect the object upon arriving at the place he found it to be the bed of a dry Lagoon w Ith t he appearance of having been dry Foi centuries. Walking cautiously Over the place he found the surface to by soft and Clayey Aud often Sank ankle deep. After an examination of tin curious Clayey Deposit lie put several handfuls into his pockets mounted his horse and returned across the mountains to his Home in Columbus. There he handed the contents of his pockets to an assayer who after analysis pronounced it the richest Sample of Borax he had Ever seen. This fact at once created great excitement and no Little expense attended the necessary claiming Etc., on the part of the fortunate discoverer. It soon proved to be an enormous Lagoon or Deposit of crude Borax two and a half Miles wide Ami live or six Iii length. It was More than one Man could proper-1 v manage so a brother Wras sent for and the two worked with a will sparing neither time nor Money until tile whole Deposit was their property and its wealth being developed. They at once obtained boilers tanks crystallized Etc., from Chicago and commenced operations. The result is that in tile course of three or four years the Brothers have perfected tin immense establishment and Are pro hiking an enormous Quantity of a chemically pure article of Borax. A scion lifer America n. A romantic affair. Beecher a religion. In his Sermon in Plymouth Church Brooklyn n. Y., on the morning of the 16th, Henry Ward Beecher made statements in substance As follows speaking of the Trinity he said that he believed there were three persons United in one godhead but if anyone should ask him Why he believed he would Tell him plainly that he did not know anything about it Only that it was easier to believe that which he thought coincided with the doctrine of the new testament than to contradict. Orthodoxy says that men must believe Iii tin Trinity or they cannot come into the Church. That is called orthodoxy but he called it heathenism. A it is not an easy thing a said or. Beecher a for an honest conscientious Man to know just what to preach and what not to it was no easy matter to remove the Rotten timbers and replace them with sound ones and not Stop the voyage of the ship. It was also said that Adam sinned and that in consequence of that sin the whole human race fell. The numbers of the human race we Erc actually beyond computation and for thousands and thousands and thousands of years they had been born into the world had lived and struggled and finally died and gone where a if you Tell me that they have All gone to heaven my answer will be that such a sweeping of mud into heaven would defile its purity and i cannot accept that. If you Tell me that they have gone Toj Iell then i swear by the lord Jesus Christ whom i have sworn to worship forever that you will make an infidel of me. The doctrine that god has been for thousands of years peopling this Earth with human beings during a period three fourths of which was not illuminated by an altar or a Church and in places where a vast population of those people Are yet without that Light is to transform the almighty into a monster More hideous than satan himself and i swear by All that is sacred that i will never worship satan though he should appear dressed in Royal Robes and seated on the throne of Jehovah. A a men Mav Sav a you will not go to a pretty and accomplished widow living in Jackson miss., met at Saratoga last summer a handsome and intelligent widower from Norfolk a. A brisk flirtation led to an engagement and the lovers separated with the understanding that she was to return to Hor Homo and break the news to an other Lover who had won Lier hand before she went to Saratoga. But it was not so easy to be Oft with the old love As it had been to to on with the new. The Jackson gentleman was wild and despairing condemning her As an arrant jilt and vowing she should marry him or else remain a widow. Letters from Jackson to Norfolk the same from Norfolk to Jackson More of them by every passing mail and warmer Day by Day until the postal sacks were menaced with spontaneous combustion final result a plot flight of the widow from her Home and proposed secret marriage in Baltimore. I lie arrangements were perfect with one exception no allowance was made for the weather the storms came on the Rains poured Down and the floods clapped their hands in the valleys of Virginia. The lady reached the trusting place forty eight hours behind time and in a state of mental and nervous collapse. He was not there to meet her she trembled sighed telegraphed cried waited two Days and finally resolved to return to Mississippi. She took the hotel proprietor into Lier Confidence and after settling her account started for the Camden station but As she was stepping upon the platform to a Manly figure. It was the gentleman from Norfolk who had been tearing his hair and looking for her in every train from the South except the one by which she had come. They were married that afternoon at St. Barnabas Church and went Down the Bay that night. One of the first purchases which they will make on going to housekeeping will be an almanac. New York dec. 20. At 5 05 this afternoon an explosion immediately followed by a fire occurred in the immense Candy manufactory of Greenfield amp sons no. 63 Barclay Street extending in the shape of an l to College place. The boiler was in the basement of the rear end of the Barclay Street Wing of the building and when it burst Tore away the entire front scattering the wreck in All directions. The Walls fell within a few minutes after the explosion or. Greenfield owner of the factory could give no idea of How Many were in the building at the time of the explosion but thought about i to. Of these about fifty escaped by the College place Entrance and a Small number got out through the sky lights walked Over the roofs and got Down the sky lights of other buildings. A Book keeper who was on the Barclay Street Side of the building was blown through a window to the Street and badly Cut. Several jumped from tile second Story and escaped with slight injuries the fall being broken by policemen and citizens on the sidewalk below. The loss of life must be Large. The parties employed in the factory were principally Young girls and boys from eight to Twenty years of age. Owing to the approach of the holidays a Louise Force was employed one working during the Day. And the other at night. The Force was changed at five o clock and the fact of the explosion occurring at five minutes past that hour renders it still More difficult to know How Many or who Are victims. Hie number in the building at the time of the disaster is variously estimated at from too to 200. The flames spread so rapidly that it is believed Many not injured by the explosion w Ere burned to death. A some of tin girls had their hair burned totally off their Heads. The Barclay Street Angle of the building has fallen to the ground As has also nos. 65 and 67 Barclay Street on tile lower Side and no. 61 on the upper Side. No search can be made for those buried in the nuns until to Morrow owing to the heat. The greatest sacrifice of life was among the Young girls Many of whom from eight to fifteen years were employed in asserting candies on the first floor Over the boiler. As the new s of the explosion spread Over the City the wildest rumours and great excitement prevailed. Large crowds hurried to the Rescue. The police kept the crowd blocks away from the place. Many persons having children or relatives working in the factory As evening wore on and they had not returned Home sought the scene of the disaster an hospitals and police stations in search of missing ones. At tile very lowest calculation there must be forty or lift bodies in the ruins. B. Klein states that he was Iii the building ten minutes before the explosion and there were a great Jany persons there at the time. He passed in front of the building immediately after the explosion and saw on most of the floors As tile front Wall had fallen a great Many boys and girls Rushing about in an excited and confused manner but they became obscured to View by the smoke and flames in a very few seconds. There seems to have been no possibility of their getting out alive la lie tire was one of the quickest Ever seen. In less than three minutes Hie flames had ascended completely to Hie roof. Peter Stadtmiller was within forty feet of the doorway when the explosion occurred. It seemed to throw up the whole sidewalk and the front of Hie building fell into the Street. I Here a a two horse truck passing and the Wall fell on the horses and Driver. Stadtmiller says he believes t Here were nearly 200 persons employed in the building at the time. There were not More than a dozen girls employed on Hie ground floor most of the boys and girls being engaged in the second and third stories. Ile is positive that not More than six girls and a dozen men came out alive through the Barclay Street Entrance. The elder or. Greenfield was about the first w to rushed out and he was much scalded. He saw about a dozen making their escape by the roof to the adjoining roofs. As near As can tie ascertained there must have been about 120 persons employed in the factory at tile time of the disaster. Ambulances were quickly at the fire and were kept Busy in taking the wounded to the hospitals. The station House and the hospitals Are besieged with men women and children a1 anxiously inquiring for some miss inn relative. Features they resembled negroes. Three mothers stood at the door from four of clock this morning making vain inquiries for their missing children. At last when one of them was about leaving in despair she encountered Ber daughter at the door. The meeting was touching. In addition to about eighteen missing persons whose names were reported to the police last night three were reported this morning. Philip Hertzbach the Engineer in the factory has not been seen since the explosion. His wife states that her husband on his return from work monday night told her one of the tubes of the boiler or some pipe connecting with it she was not sure which had burst that he spoke to or. Greenfield saving the break was dangerous and might cause an explosion if it was not repaired and or. Greenfield told him they must try to get along with it As it was until sunday owing to the pressure of business. Mrs. Hertzbach says her husband was greatly disturbed in mind on account of this and often referred to it during the week saying he was afraid every morning to go to his work. When he left Home yesterday morning he told her he never expected to see her again. Boiler i Specter Horton of the sanitary squad reported to superintendent Walling late this afternoon that he went to the building and succeeded Iii finding the steam boilers and they were intact and also everything connected with the steam apparatus in Good order. Tile inspector said one of the tanks filled with material for making Candy must have exploded breaking the kerosene lamps with which the building was lighted and scattering the burning fluid in every direction. The total loss is $128,000 insurance $835,000, distributed among thirty seven Eastern and foreign companies. Representatives of some of the insurance companies which have risks on Greenfield a building hold that inasmuch As by the terms of the policies the companies Are responsible Only for damages occasioned by fire and the explosion occurred before any fire was discovered the value of property destroyed must be based us on its condition at the moment Between the explosion and the tire which it occasioned. The scene of the fire was illuminated to Naglit by two huge bonfires and men were engaged in removing the debris from the ruins. A woman a dress and child s apron were found Early in the evening but no traces of bodies were found near them. Several of the wounded will probably die. The factory building had entrances a according to a Paris journal Donizetti was really the inventor of the Ulster. One Day at Paris he sent for his tailor to measure him for an Over coat. The tailor found him at the piano surrendering himself to the rapture of composition. Nevertheless he was persuaded to quit the beloved instrument and deliver himself lip to the Man of tape and Chalk. The tailor made the first measurements then stooping began to take the length of the garment. A a to the knee sir a he said timidly. A lower lower a said the composer in a dreamy voice. The tailor brought the measure half Way Down the leg and paused inquiringly. A lower tile tailor readied the composers Ankles. A a lower Flower.

In the Angle were situated the grocers Bank building and i. I. Tompkins Brown paper warehouse both five stories. The latter was burned to the ground. No. 65 Barclay was a Frame building with a Cigar store on the first floor the Lipper floors being occupied by col. French for the last thirty years. Dir. French and family escaped but the former left $10,000 in United states Bonds in a Book ease on the second floor. Fireman Mcgill and Roundsman Coffee Vohu steered to go in for the Bonds. The flames and smoke were bursting out of the building. Thev climbed up on the awning and entered a window secured a package of papers and came out. The package was found not to be the Bonds. A second time they in tend through the flames and smoke and brought out the fronds in safety. Fifty men have been put to work on the ruins in the streets w Hie i Are Cool enough to handle but no dead bodies have been recovered. If the ruins Are Cool enough to Morrow a Large Force of workmen will be set to work digging for bodies. A number of persons who had friends or relatives in the building say they Are missing. Pile latest estimate places the number of persons in the building at the time the explosion occurred at 170, including Twenty visitors and customers. The boiler had been in use five years and it is said Greenfield had been several times w arned that it was unsafe. War on the Rio Grande. Washington. Dec. 17. The dispatch from gov. Hubbard asking assistance from the president was referred to Secretary Mccrary and by him to Gen. Sherman who telegraphed Gen. Sheridan to Send All the troops he could. The latter replied this morning that he had ordered All available troops to the scene of the difficulty. It is thought that troops from fort Stanton have already reached Elpaso and will probably be Able to relieve the troops now surrounded by the . I he troops from fort Bayard will no doubt reach san Elizario to Morrow and with those from fort Stanton will be sufficient to keep the peace. The affair is purely local and no serious complications Are anticipated. Chicago dec. 17. Official information received at the military Headquarters this morning show s that the at san Elizario consists of about 300 citizens of Elpaso county Tex. That no mexicans have crossed the River to take part in the trouble and that the mexican authorities have Given positive orders that none of their citizens should Cross. About 300 troops have been ordered from posts in new Mexico to the source of the disturbance to Aid the civil officers of Elpaso county. This withdrawal of troops leaves the Indian Frontier exposed. All officers of the army in position to know anything about the existing troubles in Texas or the views of either government Are satisfied that there is no possible ground for warlike preparations. Washington dec. To. A gentleman from new Mexico now in this City who is thoroughly acquainted with the Salt pits in san Elizario Over which the recent disturbances have occurred says they Are vast deposits of crude Salt left there by the drying out of what were once Salt lakes. For Over 200 years residents in the Vicinity have been in the habit of going there unmolested for their Supply of Salt.
