But now we must return once More to our Youthful hero. Rudolph Morgenstern As we related in a previous chapter had hastily retreated from the drawing room at or. Newman a and found himself once More on the Street. He had left the generous Mer i chant and the Young ladies somewhat abruptly a tis True but far from having done it in a rude and unbecoming manner. full warm heart Sank within him and he Felt a strange weakness a sensation following a fusion of grief and resignation As he was reminded by Helen a father though gently of his. Misfortunes of the Many wrongs he had suffered and was still subjected to of his dependency of his forlorn situation even of his failing health. The trial was alike unanticipated and he was Young comparatively a boy and How could it have been expected of him despite his Long unbroken intimacy with adversity to see unmoved his very Shadow pass before him ? men More advanced in years and of stronger nerve could possibly have succeeded in suppressing their emotions but Rudolph was not yet hardened enough by the base corruption of the world and the Edge of Bio gentler passions was still a blunted by i diffidence and callousness. So far from being cold and insensible he was in the greatest degree susceptible of the most delicate and refined feelings of human nature and consequently he ceased struggling a with himself and pervaded by a. By Range inexplicable sensation which is Felt Only by the innocently suffering his surcharged heart became liquid in Tho Mellow flame of tenderness and in sparkling pearls meandered to the Eye. I Rudolph was Well aware that moved to tears As he was he could not Well become a Bource of entertainment and assume a live line88 to was far from feeling. Beside what assurances did to have that the Young ladies that Martha desired his presence or would care for his efforts at agreeableness if he even had stayed there and found it a. Ltd possible to Call happiness to his face Robe his features in joyous smiles and to throw of his habitual melancholy ? he knew of none and therefore would have taken his leave of the company equally As soon had he even been master of his passions and under a less sombre and less melancholy mood. Having gained the Street he slowly directed his Steps toward his Home. The tempest which had raged within had subsided the tears had discontinued to flow to his eyes and his features had assumed once More their unruffled Distant expression and his whole outer appearance acknowledged the undisputed supremacy of equanimity Over the combination of subdued passions. Quot with an abstracted air he raised his eyes alike Mournful deep and searching toward the Distant reach less 6ky above him till the magnificence and Sublimity of the Broad unending sphere of airy nothing Over his head wrought upon his vivid imagination and a strange Awe pervaded his mind. It was an unusually still night the Pale round a flecked Moon was slowly sailing on the dark Grey surge less Ocean of infinite space incalculable stars blazed around her Chaste pure White skirt and the canopy of heaven seemed indefinitely expanding Over the grand solemn and weird like procession of inconceivable legions each of a million worlds Robed in borrowed flames of Mellow. Light and moving around their orbits riveted to the wheel of every everlasting time. Ile gazed with the Eye of a philosopher and poet at the impressive spectacle surrounding the immense ethereal vision and the ineffable Tranquillity pervading the various spheres expanded his deep mind and his pregnant thoughts Swift As the Flash of lightning fearlessly soared upon Eagle wings beyond the priest created limits of this mundane Globe and defiantly sped through the vast Fields of metaphysics and robbed them of their lore. Being inspired and soaring in another world his mighty soul burst its foreign Cage doffed the Slimy Ceremeno which ignorance and Blind Faith Robed it in and roused with peals of Thunder tile innate faculties from their unnatural sleep to assert their glorious rights a to learn a know and feel their immortality. A Eye worlds innumerable a commenced he mentally reviewing a a Eye myriads of shining orbs never born nor doomed to suffer death How glorious your existence How unvarying your course a a How Many thousand Ages have imperiously swept Over your Sheen encircled Heads to the throne of Ever lusting time with the records of each trivial event Long How Long since past and forgotten a past and forgotten ? never Only Man forgets and be Are not cursed with him nor know of such a being Earth your Kindred sister having in common with you one heart and connected through the same arteries a the Beautiful smiling Earth hath Given birth to him a fed him with her Honey and milk and placed before him life and knowledge a eternal Bliss. But the wretch grew Wanton Early in Bis infancy disclaimed Bis Mother and ignored her counsel. Hark impenetrable mists fell around j Bis eyes a he no longer saw the Bright and j All illuminating Beacon Lightc a he lost his Way and stumbled in his every path inflicted Many wounds and so became the father of All woes. Blind deluded mortal to ascribe your Many sufferings to a hidden unseen unknown things shifting the weighty responsibility Foryt our mishaps on a Power a spirit god or Devil born and existing Only in your mind diseased. Weak sighted mortal i there is no god to punish you no god to Reward you. You Are your own redeemer no Power either above the Blue below it can stay or change the natural results engendered by Tho immutable Laws of nature. Behold the ceaseless order through every minute Branch of the creation note the diurnal appearance of the Sun As he has been seen for Many thousand years watch the mighty visit of the Moon the regular and Neyer failing recurrence of the various seasons without a single change learn the growth of vegetation and reason says a combination of Laws issuing from and returning to one focus Ever the same must pervade All systems alike nor can partly Stop its function in one sphere without affecting another. No god can make a change or produce a Miracle in the violation of these Laws which lire in the very heart of materialism and in that combined penetration give it life. While the one exists the other can not be annihilated a they Are inseparable from each other. In what exalted relation now can a god stand to matter and the Laws that govern it what need for a god Over matter when it is controlled by Laws a a is there a god a a a what is god ? a a reason answers nature is the Fountain of All Laws a the Laws can not live without materialism a materialism can not live without them hence nature can have no secondary Power for any Fiat against it would subject every thing to. Disorder and change and would at once acknowledge by this desire or necessity of change a limit to the Wisdom of god by the existing imperfection in Tho things he has created and the Ordinary process of nature is inadequate to is god a and Man answers a supreme spirit reason asks what is a supreme spirit a Quot Man answers and powerful judgment everything of importance was duly considered and carefully weighed upon the delicate but never erring Scales of reason. He was very Cool and unbiased in All his deliberations and consequently starting from sound premises arrived at very logical conclusions. He believed not in a Miracle working god who could change alter or annihilate the universe at his pleasure but traced every effect Back to the cause that must have produced it a such things As Chance and wonders he considered the property of the ignorant and benighted. Only whose want of penetration into the converging Laws of nature made them credulous and ascribe simple natural results which Are beyond their limited Conception to the interference and Agency of a special and higher Power. was not the mind to adopt the dogmas Laws and religion of any Creed though claiming divine authority that were in the least conflicting with the evidences of reason and the principles of cosmology. Bold fearless and daring he knocked at every Sanctuary of science and asked for. Admittance. Nothing was too sacred a too holy for investigation. He sped Over obstacles scattered and penetrated the dark Grey mists a shrouding the causes of an unlimited inquires All existing things and shot on pinions of reason a hoes this unlimited intelligence create and govern these Laws or Are they mightier than it a Man says god is All powerful All Wise and omniscient therefore created nature Aud her Springs and Conse quintly More powerful than his Here reason once More replies if that us i preme intelligence which is called god pos file Over the expansive Fields of anthroposophy psychology and pneuma ology and with the hand of Nemesis dashed a thousand shrines of superstition into dust and of their ruins erected temples of philosophy As Beacon lights to truth and knowledge. Though haying not yet arrived at Tho minds maturity and living Remote from the 8esses All these attributes his works must be Quot great Bustle of life and coining in Contact perfect a his Laws must be immutable and everlasting and being so How can he Stop or change a single wheel in the perfect and Complete machinery without confusing and demolishing the whole and thereby forfeiting his infinite Wisdom and omniscience ? and As we know and note the immortality with few persons Only Rudolph had acquired through his deep study in metaphysics the knowledge of penetrating into the heart of Man and Lay Hare Tho motives passions and infirmities of the character under his observations. Fearlessly he looked even into his own great heart and took note of his of these Laws in the unvarying course and particular frailties and capacities. Possess All pervading order and regularity of every ing a mind Fertile in inexhaustible resources sphere where is the Field of operation of and conscious of his mental strength to this supreme intelligence since the whole universe is put in motion by established and immutable Laws leaving god powerless and making him a superfluid ? and being powerless what single doom a what natural result can be averted by prayers or a belief in him a can he change or banish from this Globe a single affliction of the Many without removing the Caus that produced the effect and does not that cause exist in nature Over which he can have no control As it is the embodiment of immutable Laws hence no link can be taken out of the Chain without leaving a fissure which trifling As it May appear would change the Fate of million worlds. And As the permanent and harmonious rules of nature Are pervading even grapple with the profoundest thames his Subtle thoughts rising from an intellect Clear and searching swept in Resistless Energy above the Mao Kiles and observances introduced by priests rabbis and other sectarian partisans and defiantly Trode upon the la of marriage which consign human Bein into slavery most cruel and unnatural auf pulled the exclusive rights of individuals to property disdainfully rejected the existence of a god As degrading to our intelligence and scorned alike the pretended prescience of the Prophet and the science of the alchemist. With a lofty Conception of Tho great and a vaulting ambition to break asunder the self imposed Fetters of the mind his wild and boundless enthusiasm male him bold the most trivial seeming creation and As and reckless in his attacks on the most time Law and order Are antagonistic to Chanco and Contention upon whom if not upon Man rests the responsibility for the existence of the numerous woes that flesh is subjected to a a yes wretch a a Rudolph bitterly Contin honoured institutions who were doomed to feel his mighty Battle a until their colossal structures like a Tower of ashes crumbled into ruin. He beheld with disdain the government of Mankind in which despite Tho numerous codes of Laws and precepts of moved the world this Earth knows of j and philosophy crimes continually i a. No woos save those you introduced a a torment to yourself. Sickness pain murder sorrow a to these and Many thousand More afflictions you Are the father. Look upon your creations wretch and Blush no god can. Wipe away this stain no god can interfere. Exert your mighty intellect and find the cause of each dire Ful effect adhere to nature and obey her every Law and grief like Vapours in a Gale will vanish from on Earth and generation after generation shall live in happiness. Learn nature a act not in Defiance of. Her Beneficent rules and you will see Tho Earth in its Pristine state of Bliss encumbered Harmony without a single spot to stain the Mirror of such were indeed the strange reflections which being the abstract ideas of his abstruse religion pervaded the whole mind of the student. Rudolph Morgenstern was though still a youth and Only in the. Infancy of manhood a profound thinker and possessing a Ripe increase with their attending woes and sorrows. It was his deep rooted conviction that Man. Was destined by nature to live and die free of pain and that every affliction no matter in what shape or form they Are introduced Are merely Tho natural results of the accumulation of his transgressions for thousands of years and not the Workings of a special Providence. Thinking that the remedy for All existing evils Lay within our reach and charging on the advocates iof the various religious codes the prolongation of the miseries on. Earth his ambition to become a a Benefactor to the human race made his Genius Fertile of schemes and he Laboured to introduce a Universal and harmonious system of government .for.society, differing and insulated from every other with the Hope of accomplishing the result Moses with Tho assistance of the revealed religion of god and Solon and Lycurgus with their distinct Precept have not been enabled to produce such was Rudolph poor
