Monroe 1 have no desire to put myself As being the smartest Man on Earth or having penetrated into the Arcana of matter deeper than any. One else but i have penetrated just far enough to upset false theories let them come from whatever source they May. We often hear materialists talking about one particle of matter attracting another also that it is under the Laws of attraction that objects Are formed by nature. I would ask where in nature do we Lind any evidence of such Laws i know there is a spiritual magnetic Law in existence that attracts or takes up particles of matter Iii id forms bodies but i do not know of any Law outside of the above that Ever attracted one particle of matter to another particle. Yon May disintegrate one Pound or More of drop with a certain degree of heat and there Isno i Awin the universe that will Ever attract the same particles together to form tie same Pound of Iron. You May Klack a Lump of Lime with Quot water and there is no Law in existence under which those particles will Ever be attracted to each other again. You May dissolve one Grain of indigo in five grains of water and there is no Law in existence that will enable them to reunite by attracting each to the other. You May Force the spiritual magnetic principle from any object having a brain and disintegration will take place with that body and there is no Law of attraction that will Ever unite these particles of matter again. Chemistry demonstrates that there is no Law of attraction connected with matter. You can disintegrate but you cannot attract one particle of matter to another by any Law in the universe. You can Force adhesion but you cannot attract. Now. What do the above facts prove i answer this that the Law of attraction in matter does not exist. There is no condition in matter that enables one particle to attract another. Should we charge a Pound of Iron with spiritual magnetic Force it would attract another Lump of Iron less than itself and at the same time it would not attract Gold or Silver and you could not charge one Lump of Gold 60 that it would attract another. The idea that materialists Advance that one particle of matter attracts another and hence objects Are formed is not proven by nature. Outside of the spiritual and magnetic Laws such a thing As attraction never took place. In objects with brains attraction exists but in objects without brains such a thing As attract too cannot be sustained by an Man in existence. You May disinter Grunt matter of any form and there is no Law in existence by which my of the articles will Ever be att ted Ogeth or to form the same body or one similar. Now Friend materialist you can see that your theory of attraction amounts to just nothing. It is All Bosh. You can disintegrate Mattor through of Emieal process an Tiki to to Are done. You cannot Atko the same particles again and Orin the same now i claim that there is no Ion in existence it til or a million part ii Ither and form does not of Tow no b Ift of a then disintegration. No object can build itself up by attraction. It must be by consuming particles of matter that Are adapted to its use and were it not for our spiritual nature there could not be any growth in the vegetable or animal kingdom As no growth takes Placo by the attracting of one particle of matter to another so As to form object. I. D. A -1-��� what will you chive Lor a by a a Trullie Osceola Mills pa., aug. 8,1883. A do. Moskoe a the Christian always want to know what we will give him in place of religion. This Means of course that he will sell All his religion for a Good Price but will not part with it for nothing. To ask for something in place of a lie is the height of Absurdity but still even we. Perkins a contributor to tie ironclad age., says Quot All the palaver about attacking the Bible disproving Chi Tian creeds till something better is shown to take their places is wor8�v. Than v or. Perkins it seems would Lite to give some new Dogma in Liu of christianity. When the Heathen asks the Christian missionary for something in place of Liis religion the pais sinary offers him a Good bargain. Quot for your religion Quot says the missionary Quot i will give you mine for every Miracle i will give you a greater one for your Angels i will a Ive you larger ones and for Ybur ittle Brahma you can have our big of course any Wise Heathen would Trade his insignificant miracles for the Christian Ash stories and his Little hell for the Christian s scoreless Lake of fire. But the infidel can t give anything in place of religion but the truth and that does t satisfy the religionist. Quot we can t part with our idols for nothing Quot says the isolator. Quot we Don t Trade our Happy Huntiii grounds fat nothing Quot says the american Indian Quot and then have no Buffalo when we and the Christian says Quot it takes some fuel to make a hell As hot As ours our heaven too is Worth something and the flood Story is not a common affair our Man it god Jesus and old god himself Are above the Standard of gods. All these will not be traded for nothing not , a such Are the a ments employed by the champions of Superb station and defenders of creeds i asking for something in of a lie is so absurd that nothing can be said to ridicule it. What would you think of a Man with Small pox demanding something instead of his disease by fore allowing himself to be cured., if some one would offer to Desty All the potato bugs How Many christians would want something in their ple. If it were possible to prevent cyclones would a i or. Perkina want something if their Stead slaves never ask for anything in lieu of their chains.

He is editor of the London secular review and amongst the leaders of the set Jar Union one of the a organizations in behalf of thought in the world. In every respect or. Watts is a skillful and Well equipped defender of the new Faith and a most destructive opponent of the old. I most earnestly wish that All liberals should hear this Man and make a Good use of his services while in this country for the advancement of secular ideas. I want to make arrangements for him to lecture at every Point where there is a focus of liberalism and a Chance to put in a few Good blows for Liberty and Progress.

J. H. Hainly a Well known and reliable citizen of Barnard mo., writes to the Gazette the Partick Lai s of the discovery of a giant Skeleton four Miles Southwest of that place. A Farmer named John w. Hannon found the Bones i to truding from the Banks of a Ravine that has been Cut by the action of the sins during the past years. Or. Hannon worked several Days in unearthing the Skeleton which proved to be that of a human being whose height was twelve feet. The head through the temples was twelve inches from the lower part of the Skull at the Back to the top avas fifteen inches and the circumference forty inclines. The ribs were nearly four feet Long and one and three Quarter inclines wide. The thigh Bones were thirty inches Long axed Large in proportion. When the Earth was removed the ribs stood up High enough to enable a Man to crawl in and explore the Interior of the Skeleton turn around and come out with ease. The first joint of the great toe above the Nail was three inches Long and the entire foot eighteen inches in length. The Skeleton Lay on its face Twenty feet below the surface of the ground and the toes were imbedded in the Earth indicating that the body either fell or was placed there when the ground was soft the left Arm was pres around backward the hand resting of the spinal column while the Arm was stretched out to the front and right. Some of the Bones crumbled on exposure to the air but Many Good specimens were preserved Iana Are now on exhibition at Barnard. Medical men Are much inti rested. The Skeleton is generally pronounced a valuable Skeleton of the prehistoric race. Immortality. The problem solved at last philosophically. New York tiitt�.,. The Bomford school of.

This however is no objection Worth noticing since or. Arias argument would have precisely the same Force whatever might be the number of the two persons to a loom he refers. That something uld break As he for of knt if Man were not perfectly True. Man my ret in mortal is unquestionably immortal if the fit Perii Foo is himself and Liat he Rai Lier that he does is plainly implied by or. Harris. Man according to or. Harris reaches from the pure external and passive up to the pure Active. The same is True of Lime and this fact undoubtedly strengthens the argument. Pure external Lime May be passive when dry but when it is brought into Contact with water it reaches up to the pure Active or in other , it boils and bubbles ill the Active process of shaking. A Concord philosopher before dinner May be externally passive but put him at a table spread with the Oatmeal of Eastern philosophy and the roast pork of we Stern platonism and he will instantly illustrate the meaning of pure external of activity. If Man reaches from the pure external and passive up to the pure Active even the Quot wayfaring Man though a transcendentalist would know that he was immortal. This position is absolutely impregnable and it is difficult to see How those who do not believe in immortality can now avoid throwing up the argument i sponge. In regard to or. Harris assertion that without self activity there would be Quot no derivative or finite being Quot there is room for a difference of opinion. If this be True How does Harris account for the existence of Worcestershire sauce or How does he explain the prevalence of areas of depression in the Lake Region. These great formative facts a a containing As they tin questionably do the germs of overt mereness certainly do coexist with derivative and finite be Ings Well a with Whitewash and yet Are apparently without any self activity whatever. This it however is merely a profound philosophic speculation having no need Essary connection with Man s immortality. It is because or. Harris has so brilliantly Demontra the immortality or Man that he deserves More gratitude and admiration than have Ever before been lavished upon any in a Khodja la Laud. Providence b.

Order was restored finally and one of Deacon Green s friends moved to adjourn which was lost. The Paster probably excited by the disturbance unwisely began a personal discussion with or. Adam Lewis one of the members of the Church and lost his temper. He began to doff his coat and told Lewis that he could Knock him out in five minutes. Several members interfered and rushed Between the two men Whereat the reverend gentlemen went to the stove and seizing the cover threatened to annihilate any one with it who contradicted him. The scene at this moment was wild and exciting and the Clergyman had evidently forgotten himself for he jumped upon a seat near the pulpit and with one foot resting on the seat acid the other on the pulpit and the holy Bible lying on the floor he Shook his fist menacingly at his opposes. Mrs. Mitchell apparently imbibed the fiery spirit of her husband for she also it is stated used her Tongue freely towards those she thought were against her husband and Shook her fist in their faces. In the meantime Deacon Green had warmed up to the affray and with All the fiery ardor of. His younger Days doffed his coat Ond was Bent on knocking out Deacon Ford. They were separated and the meeting broke up in dire confusion just As a policeman who had been summoned entered. At a meeting of the Church Board held last night the pastor preferred charges against Deacon Ford a Rhom he termed a disturber of peace and ring Leader to an element to split the Church.
