Sj ?ays ev*ry ob?, and according to th? old "*D*[ very one says must be true" it assaulting old ideas and opinions, upsetting received theories, and demol!?b'ng t ine-honored tra. d'.tions. indicates an intellectual advance tben we are progressing rapidly. Kos? Browne, in his sprightly sketch of tbe Island ot Jaan Fernandez. de critMs a character who not only refused to believe in Kobiuson Crusoe, but was incredulous as to his man Friday and the gsau, and even went sj far a* to doubt the existence of tbe island on wbicb he (the doubter) then stood. This individual is ibe type of a class which is becoming so numerous that we are likely to have all history, sacred and profane, oral and written, wipeU ou', leaving tbe past at uncertain and misty as la* fur are. Tbe son of Napoleon 111., whj refuses to study geography for tbe reason thit >the map has of.en changed of late years, and papa says will soon be changed again," might with even greater propriety refuse to study history, because It is likely 'o be rewritten before he can profit by bis lessons. Within a few years past, "progressionists" of tbe school we refer to, have ae. down Homer as a mytb, claiming that tbe poems credited to blm are a mere collection of tbe rhymes of wandering minstrels; have uncrowned Shakespeare, and placed bis laurels on tbe brow of Lord Bacon; have reconstructed the crook-backed tyrant Richard 111, and nade of him a type of physical beauty and noral excellence; have defended J udas Iscariot, who they say was a much abused man, and aot accountable for bis acts; have asserted that the Bible is not to be relied on for matter ot (act; have spoiled the romantic story of Focahoatn- saviag the life of Captain John Smith, and added insult to injary by saying Smith was a "bio irer"' and Poeahontas "a little waaton IndiAa nrl." and uow characterize the story of William Tell snootiag the apple off his son's head aa a pleasing fable, baaded down from the remotest antiquity. Plot only is ancieutand medieval history being subjected to a rigid scrutiny by these doubting Thomases, but event* the most recent are canvassed with a vigor and determinatioa which a calculated to deter many timid souls from ! accepting anything as truth, la fact, Archbishop Wbatcly's Illustration of how historical facta may be controverted is not so exaggerated as he seemed to think, and we may expect shortly to Had rome wiseicre seriously advancing the theory that Napoleon Bonaparte waa a myth ; a mere invention of the French [ Republicans to frighten the English and keep the comment m order. Already the event* in onr late rebellioa are sharing j the law of other historical fasts more remote, ! and while we know, because we have seen, that our troops In the teld defeated and scattered army after army opposed to them: assaulted and carried stronghold attar strong- j hold, in the Sou-h; and won the rebellious ter ritory inch by iacb, and held it, until all op* position was crushed out, and the Federal authority re-estiblikhed on every loot of soil j yet we have philosophers of the new school who will demosstrate, to their owa satisfaction ; at least, that n< rebel General ever lo.t a battle; that the South was always victorious; and that they gav* ip the straggle merely because they got tired it fighting. If history is to be changed to suit all sorts of theories, built on j the prejudices, or the whims and caprices of every one who sets up for a critic, we may as well burn up our books, and make up our minds to disbelieve everything outside of our own experience, and not be too saxe of the verity of what we see and hear. Tub Fian Akth -The admirable paiatlng by Sommers. representing a scene in the Oatskill Mountains, attracts much attention at Harknter's, ?th street. It is a gem to ha prised, and will doubtleee be secured by some one of taste.
