We find the following in the Bloomington ills., pantograph of a feb. 13th last on sunday morning Rev. Or. Dins Raore preached from the text Job 1 9 Quot doth Job fear god for naught Quot being the taunt that satan made to god regarding Job s piety a that he was a i ious a in Only because he got Rich by it. Out of this grew a severe test of Job s sincerity by his being reduced to poverty and being grievously at hinted but As the a a acred narrative relates he held fast his Faith . Having explains de the text or. Dins Raore made it the starting Point for a Strong it defense of the sincerity f Chris to aids attack la i g and denouncing the charge Ali acc they Are selfish hypocrites and Cotui sect themselves wife the cd much to get Motiey Husi Ness Fame or so dial position. In tie course of his a Ernami the Speake eloquently denounced the Scoins mud Lings frequently made at Tihe Cliris Tialii clergy Verj common in certain quarters and especially Lelia listed in by Low bred newspapers. On this Poitry or. Wisemore s words Are reproduced entire scially is Ltd it is sneer Ler eled at the clergy. There is be urlass or calling among men that hag to Bear same amount to of .Ean slurs insinuations and acc ustious against their Iii Verity and integrity As Hae the Christian clergy and a make bold to say thet no class or calling among men to Little deserve it. Muy Albect to believe and no doubt Many Are so blinds by the Poison of their Awn i Lojudice that their do believe that the word Pai son or priest if the for villain or scoundrel. Every Waring infidel every flashy newspaper every Low bred Loafer round tavern or Saloon is Eady with Slang gibe and jeer some of whom More refined axed sensible things i might be expected fall into the same True. It the Devil i Way of striking Back a at those he most hate because a most Feair. Now let it be confessed that to Tere Are clergy men who Are Ouw Cathy of Christian Confidence and Ife Spect there sire those who follow their calling As other Saen follow a Trade or a or ii session because they get a living Jcj it or a or the social consideration it secures them others Are Actu sited by amp Mere split of official Isai and of hers Stilin but few however Are conscious and calculating hypocrites though All such certain sooner or later to come to grief that comma Only soon. But after All Silow ances and confessions Are made it is not fair nor reasonable nor according to obvious fact to say that they am As a Rule selfish worldly or dishonest men. I know clergymen Well those in i fish and Humble station and i solemnly believe that As a class they Are sincere and self denying of in and worthy of All the Confidence respect and affection they receive. Not one in ten of them has an income that it would be Worth while to play the hypocrite to get. The abilities and learning to character and Industry Neces to sustain them in Ore to at of Huron would earn them far More in other callings than in the ministry. Piu Lon me. I up eff a not of myself. Few men have More to be in Fol for and less to complain of few have been More generously ipod in every Way. Many far i worthier men have had to contend Idak diff Ciuti a sad data Moorage Marti and Mumn atm on the Partout pm la which i Havo never , Ulm a much the tar 6 in mkt troth my i Rel it a i honestly believe it. When we consider the actual labor a Christian pastor has to perform the draft upon his intellectual resources and Industry especially in our own Branch of the Church the facing the same congregation week after week year in year out the Difini culty and delicacy of Many of the duties he has to do and Many of the relations he sustains and the meagre worldly compensation he usually receives he can see very Little inducement for an insincere and selfish Man to take up and follow the calling from merely worldly considerations. Besides the kind and Quality of life that the clergy Are obliged to live whether sincere or not Are not attractive to insincere men to men who Are prompted by selfish motives and animated by a secular spirit. They Are compelled by a Public opinion i not by conscience to forego indulgences of Many kinds that Are allowed to others. And yet they Are accused of being time servers of conspiring to dupe and deceive i tie worl<5 to Rule Over men by Power superstition hypocrisy and priest Craft.

The sneer of satan i Andi his emissaries is As insincere i and false As it is .Ean and contemptible. One of the most maligned of them a Man whose name is a scare Crow to multitudes of ignorant stupid or prejudiced people Johb calving was the founder of Liberal institutions in Europe and the father of free schools and no historian Hus dwelt on this More enthusiastically than the unitarian Bancroft. They have been the most intrepid and indefatigable explorers of history. To this or. A. S. Burrows replies in another paper As follows i saw the report of a Sermon delivered by or. Dinsmore in monday s taut graph he claims that the clergy Are sincere in their belief and to prove this i would like to know what their belief is on certain Points. I wish to ask or. Dinsmore or any other orthodox hours in a Days six thousand years ago and then i wish to know if he believes that god got mad and caused a Universal flood that swept off every living creature except Noah and his family and the animals and Birds that were with him in the Ark and then after that scheme had failed to get sin out of the world if he believes that god came Down and he got a son and then abandoned him and allowed him to be crucified on the Cross to save All Mankind and after All Only a Small part is saved at last. These Are questions that can be answered Quot yes Quot or if you go to explaining then you must allow the Freethinker to explain also. If these questions Are answered in the affirmative then i will believe that or. Dinsmore or any other Clergyman is sincere in his preaching otherwise i cannot believe that he is sincere. A. S. Bode rows. As will be seen elsewhere in a Cammmi cation from or Burrows the Good minister treats the above questions with Coati rpt.

Rob Eiji Collyer spoke last night to a congregation in the Che such of a the Messiah at Quot shirt fourth of Creek and Park Avenue upon the work of Egbert Inga Soll Quot i count that rather a wonderful sight Quot he said that we i be and hear of new and Tsien in Liis City and in ii it High Boeing cities when go fact pubic Halk Are crowded to meet and Welcome the Art Fli Cham Pic in of atheism end to Bajsar what he has to say generally about Faith , that Faith which beyond All other things has moved and melded ithe hut mind in All Ages. Those who Lavatch the signs of the titties closely will in be that Thuc most of those Avo a crowd to see Inge 8oll also flock to hear Moody when he is Here an fact the Are Ike people who will go to Ai place where e Good time is to be a had. Itlie Case is much As a great English statesman <��>�,0 put it when his a Terri Ion was called to the a cheerily of a a Bat was waiting for him most them would do that if i amp key had come to see Iee Hui the most prominent of Ingersoll s prese Ait Wokfe is his want of Icli Arit Aible onside ratio of Thos who do not belies re Asho Doea this it was Nat his ear meet manner. It it was my fort Mue not Long Sii Sce to spend a Moring with him on a train Asch that gentleness Woiach is to plot skirt to Cee in an opponent blew through our Little Conten irions like the summer wind through the Blue Bells on the hillsides which Are swayed to Aud fro but straighten up after every Breeze passes. I Don t expect to find him the same on the platform As he was thai morning. The seeking for applause and laughter the playing for the bowery boys Lowers and makes coarse tie work of any one who indulges in it. The or. Ingersoll rostering around at s25,000 a year As the common talk has it is not the Ingersoll of years ago when he was working All alone in Peoria and winning the respect even of those who could not understand his position. There is not much danger that atheism will make great Progress with its greatest apostle a Penang jobs tartly in Motley a Jua beat method of to if and whoever goes a pal with a tip of hit Inq Ijaz a too Matiy to wit to be voted a nuisance. Intolerance can never help the advocacy of atheism any More than it can its opponents. No Man of common sense believes some things in the books of Moses books which Are full of Beauty and truth however but there is no Man that had t far better believe everything about the Serpent the Apple and the Ark than or. Inge soil s doctrine that there is no god. I can agree in nothing Avith the Faith of a Man who tells me that his Mission is to destroy men s Faith in their god. I have no stones to throw at atheism any More than at a Blind Man. It can never be an institution it can never be More than a destitution. As it was Well said recently atheism is a Plant that won t grow in our Hardy Anglo Saxon soil. One thing is certain however those who believe and not in some Mere surmise about god have got to stand firmly together As the heroes of Twenty years ago did Kcjr the solidity of the Union i la Wade Chin deep into the fight by the Side of shouting method list or watery Baptist though he baptize m�3 twice a year under the old Flag of the almighty. All minor issues must be cast aside till the question is settled for All time. And we As we stand the pioneers of tie truest fairest Faith a Faith that needs not the Serpent or the Ark to .?.ean upon bit fronts the it Light boldly we shall grow Ever More worthy of his truth by show ii a it in out lives.

Remsburg closed his engagement As a Liberal lecturer in this City last saturday night and left on sunday for his Home in Atchison. Or. Remsburg delivered a course of five lectures the subjects being Quot our infidel fathers Quot Quot the Sabbath its origin use and abuse Quot Quot the Bible in the Public schools Quot Quot two Hundred flaws in Christ s credentials Quot and Quot the life and Public services of Thomas we shall not dwell on the merits of these discourses nor give our individual opinion thereon but shall perform our duty As Public journalists and Quot write it up Quot even As we would a circus or a funeral. The audience that greeted this talented gentleman were at first Tatlier slim in size but increased largely each successive evening until on the closing night a crowded House was awarded him. The class of people that comprised these congregations is clearly stated in the words spoken by j. M. Hagaman of Concordia who m As present and said Quot i am pleased to note that Broad and High foreheads Are characteristic of these the fact that the crowd of listeners gathered strength in numbers each night is sufficient evidence that the subjects under discussion the strength of the arguments and the ability of the speaker were highly appreciated by our citizens. As we predicted last week the clergy cd Loose to ignore the whole matter and positively refused to attempt to refute the charges made by or. Remsburg the reason of this being probably Best known to themselves. There was however a goodly sprinkling of staunch members in attendance at every night. Tiie closing lecture Quot the life and Public services of Thomas Paine Quot was As above stated listened to by a very image audience composed of Cawker s a est citizens. As being very appropriate in this subject and the eloquence of the speaker during its delivery we reproduce the following from the Cloud co. Blade of the 3d instant. Quot it is the opinion of Good and competent critics that no utterances of the eloquent and gifted Ingersoll whose rhetorical efforts have in Rill 1 the hearts of Many millions everywhere with the glow of patriotism surpassed this lecture for Beauty Grace and eloquence. We can wish for nothing better to happen to our fellow men than the pleasure of listening to this master piece of eloquence by or. at the close of the discourse such a Stom of applause followed As has never before been equated within the four Walls of Parker s Hall. The ladies waved their hands and handkerchiefs in the wildest enthusiasm and the men clapped their hands so loud and Long that would seem blisters were inevitable. During the furore mayor Parker arose and moved Quot that it be resolved that the course of lectures delivered by prof. Remsburg was the Best and grandest intellectual treat Ever Given in Cawker City by any entertainment or gathering of any kind on any subject or for any purpose and that everyone present without respect to their belief or Creed their vocation social relations color of their hair or the diet they subsisted on proffer to or. Bem song a vote of Heartfelt thanks for tile entertainment and instruct Ltd i they had derived from his Lee Toree in this caly. Motion was a bonded by a Hundred Vaiee aaa a Pep the hair Mas Hob. T. F. to a vote the Quot Aye Aye Quot that rang out must surely have damaged the foundation of the building. The Call for Quot nays Quot was responded to by a dead silence. If the reverend gentlemen of the several churches had been present they would have lifted their hands in holy horror to see the people crop Ding around and grasping by both hands this Quot terrible verily it is wonderful How wicked the world is getting to be. John e. Rems Birg leaves Many friends and admirers in this City and the Well wishes of every Man who is not an ignorant bigot will follow him hence for no Man no matter How much he May differ in opinion with him can have aught to say of him except in highest Praise. tie idleness of girls. The great mistake that Many of our girls Are making and that their mothers Are either encouraging or allowing them to make is that of spending their time out of school in idleness or in frivolous amusement doing no work to speak of and learning nothing of the practical duties and serious cares of life. It is not Only in the wealthier families that girls Are growing up indolent and in practice in household work indeed i think that More attention is paid to the Industrial training of girls in the wealthier families than in the families of Nrec Hanics and people in moderate circumstances where the mothers Are compelled to work hard All the while. Quot within the last week Quot says one of my correspondents Quot i have heard two mothers worthy women in most respects say the first that her daughter never did any Why if she wants to say to her companions i never swept a room in my life and takes Comfort in it let her say it and yet the Mother is sorrowing Over the shortcomings of that very daughter. The other said she Woid not let her daughter do anything in the Kitchen. Poor deluded woman she did it herself instead. The habits of indolence and of helplessness that Are thus formed Are not the greatest evils resulting from this bad practice the selfishness that it Fosters is the worst thing about it. How devoid of conscience How lacking in a Trae sense of tenderness or even of Justice a girl must be who will thus consent to devote All her time out of school to pleasuring while her Mother is bearing All the heavy burdens of the household and the foolish Way in which mothers themselves sometimes talk about this even in the presence of their children is mischievous in the extreme. Quot of Hattie is so absorbed with let books or her crayons or her embroidery that she takes no interest in the household matters and j do not like to Call upon As if the daughter belonged to a Superior order of beings and Toust Jot soil her hands or ruffle her temper with necessary housework. The Mother is the Drudge the daughter is a Fine lady for whom she toil. No Mother who suffers such a state of things As this can pre Sorvo the respect of her daughter and the respect of her daughter no Mother can afford to lose. The result of this is to form in the minds of Many gifted girls not Only a distaste for labor but a contempt for it and a purpose to avoid it As Long As they can live by some Means or test non ind to a Audi to Flea Outka.
