As the heart panteth after the water brooks, bo panteth the soul of one of your late contributors after an explanation of the existence of evil?and he is but the type of millions of thirsty souls with whom I leel deep sympathy, having passed through the same deserts of doubt and distress; but, t>y virtue of mun's Inherent power of reflection and reason, I have come into the smooth waters of peace and adorution at the iniinitc wisdom, goodness and holiness of our Maker?out of pure sympathy I will offer the results of my reflections, In hope that the craving thirst of distressed souls may possibly be aasaaged; but I protest beforehand that if I offer anything in contradiction of "orthodoxy" I am not to tiiaine, since 1 draw ull my lnspiratlpn from the "Word of Cod." I remember once to have deeply shocked the "orthodoxy" of a most excellent Quaker friend by declaring that Ood has taken the responsibility of the existence or evil upon Himself?an assertion which he pronounced at once a downright blasphemy, as the great majority of Christians would to-day. Tacit, blank astonishment pervaded his countenance when I referred him to book, chapter and verse in the Old Testament in support of my assertion. For the benefit of all I will here give the quotation from the greatest of all true prophets:? Isaiah, xlv., 7?"I form the light an* create darkness; I make peace and create evil. I, the Lord, do all these tilings." The verse occurs in one of the uiost wonderhil chapters in the Bible?in that prophecy in which he calls the great Cyrus by name two hundred years nefore the birth of the hero, and tells hlin who it is that rails him and what he can do and perform. No wonder that Cyrus honored the sepulchre of the Piophet when he conquered Palestine. Many minds and many pens have been employed In all ages on the mysterious "origin of evil," ami the writer Himself iti his early manhood attempted to translate Into Kiiglish a splendid poem on that subject, inditeu in Herman by the learned bwlss, Doctor Under, proving the hol t this subject had on the writer's iniud. Hut why smmui all the world, through ail ages, make such a mystery of the existence of evil, when hod Himself reveals, through the mouth 01 one 01 Ilia most tutored prophets, thai it is He himself, the Lord, that "creates evil?" Modern orthodoxy will be apt to say, "We will not believe this, though proclaimed by the most in-, apired of prophets, because it is absolutely con-' trary to the nature of Lou, whose holiness cannot look upon evil. Yet, let us reflect, can anything iiuppen tn the whole universe without the will of ?;od? Must not the foundation of all phenomena be still the "Will Of God t" Ami must we not withal rest satisfied that all lie does is wisdom* If we analyze the subject we shall find that God foamf Himself under the necessity, much against Hit choice of goodness and holiness, to create evil. "Preposterous proposition I" will lie the instant exclamation of most Christians. I say that if tied would have beings of intelligence outside of Him oeir He coold not help placing before then tioth good and evil, for if He kail created them incapable of the latter where would have beeu tl^C good NEW YOK ness oi them, since the vtrtne of goodness can only consist Id Its choice over evil r Angels of perfect goodness, created as such, could possess no virtue, and would be simple automata of goodness, (iod llimsell could not be called good and holy without the power and liberty of choice between good and evil. But He created the good and the evil. How can this tunicate His preference of the one over the other 1 The ttiiw qvA /ion condition of the development of the linage of God In Ills cieatures imperiously exacted or Him the existence of evil; hut to provide for the redemption irom the effects of evil was in Ills power, and His plan of ledemption was conceived by Ilmi before the foundation of Ills universe. "The arm of the Lord brought salvation unto liuu." H is uot salvation to men alone, buc salvation to the goodness and holiness of the Lord. Perfect vindication of His divine attrlbines, who shall accuse 'he Lord for the existence of evil, when it Is lie himself that saves from evil ? Evil has no element of eternal existence. Truth and error are the fundamental elements of Knowledge, of intelligence; they correspond with good and evil. Error is ever subject to be convicted of lack of trut n; therefore error Is by its very nature evanescent, and when the last or orror has been proved nothing but truth remains;, hence truth, alone Is eternal, the conflict between truth and error, betvyeen good and evil, will not last lorever, but only so long as God chooses to cducat.o men by the contrast bPf.WPPii truth untl nrrnr ami ornml utirl ovil urith. out which contrast uo knowledge, no intelligence I The wisdom of Clod will bo justified by Llis own children. The evil exists In the world that man may exercise divine attributes In overcoming it. Woe to the coward that shirks the battle I Courage, ye weary lighters with evil! Follow the banner ol the Captain of your Salvation. Do you not behold the geindecked, brilliant crown of victory in Ills hand? For ward! Kveur lorward I and never look behind I Do the stings of remorse make you halt? Call on your Captain, he carries a balm for every sting; trust him, truBt him! Tears of thankfulness are streaming down my face to the Cod that saves us from all evil while I am penning this. ORTHODOX OK NOTf Defence of the "Whtte-IIaf red Sexton" of St. Thomas'. To tjik Editor op thk Hkuai.d:? 1 noticed in your paper of last Sunday a note from one who claimed to be a vestryman in somo city (Aurcii concerning St. Thomas' church and his treatment by the "white-haired sexton." The writer must have been somewhat out or humor when lie wrote the note, as tt)p treatment he complained of is so different from that always extended to strangers by the same wliite-luilred sexton. I have been a member of St. Thomas' church for more than twenty years, find can testify to the welcome always extended strangers who desire to worship with us. 1 could not but but think, when I read the note referred to, vt?\i nuiui, I1AU Itc "lJUU t* |ltTT-UUIUUI AH Ob< Thomas', would like to corno to his puw every Sunday and And it filled with strangers, an would be the case if Mr. Williams should at once seat every stranger who applied to him. Every pew in the church is taken, and it Is therefore no easy matter to give every applicant a seat, and, as is the general request, 'iA good seat, pretty far up." Our white-haired sexton has always been celebrated for his faithfulness to his duties and Ins courtesy to strangers, and I, therefore, have sought this opportunity to defend him against what was, in my opinion, an uncalled-for reflection on him and on the church he selves. Aa a vestryman 1 should think the writer of the note would learn to extend charity towards a sexton who has so many difficult duties to perform. MEMBER OF ST. THOMAS' CHUltCH. [Several other correspondents make a similar explanation in regard to the above matter.?En. Herald.] Does the Bible Tench the Doctrine of Purgatory? To tne Editor op toe Herald:? The Irish World of the 8th Inst, contains a letter from the Kev. Father Valtey, of Madison, Wis., taken from the Madison Democrat, addressed to the Kev. ll.W.Spalding, a Protestant clergyman of the same place, being one of a series of controversial arguments between the two upon "The Catholic Church, its Doctrine and Sacraments." The llrst part of the reverend geutleman's epistle is in defence of the doctrine of purgatory, which he attempts to establish upon a Scriptural basis. Not having seen what Mr. Spalding may have said upon the subject, but judging from the remarks oV&tlier Vahey, I uui led to infer that the former contented himsell by merely denying that the Bible taught any such docrine. To conviace him, however, that the Bible does teach the doc riue, lie quotes three texts Irom the New Testament In support of the dogma; and It is to two of these I wish more particularly to advert in this communication, partly because they are the most frequently quoted t>y Catholics, and, chiefly, because upon them Father Valley luys pccahar emphasis. Hut, before giving Ike texts, 1 would here remark that In summing up his comments upon the doctrine the reverend Father concludes in these words:?"The creation of purgatory is evidence of Cod's love for us, who wills our little faults (sins) to be effaced by the purifying agency of tire." The texts arc taken lroni the liouay version, ana are as tallows:? Re at agreement with this adversary betimes, while thou art in ttie way; lest perhaps the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the iudgo deliver ihee to the ofti cor, and thou he east into prison. Aineu I sav to thee t li<>n shult not go out thence till thou repay the lust farthing. (Matt, v., 29, 28.) Now If any man build on this foundation sold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stublile, every man's work shall be made manifest, for the day ot the Lord shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by Are, and tire shall try every man's work, of what it is. If any mail's work abide which he had Imllt thereupon, he shall receive reward; If any man's work burn, he shall suffer loss, but he himself shall be saved so us by Are. (First Cor. ill.. 12, IS, 14.) In the Knglish Bible the last clause of the first text above quoted reads thus: "Verily I say unto thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence till thou hast paid the uttermost birthing," the only essential difference being that In tne Catholic version the words "by no means" are omitted, and the reason Of this, perhaps, may appear afterwards. Now I contend that the text from Matthew v., 23 , and 28, does not refer to purgatory, and for the lol" lowing reasons:? First?The "adversary" spoken of Is any one whom we may wrong; the "Judge" Is cod, the "officer" is death and the "prison" is hell. To show that | this is not a mere fanciful interpretation, our Lord descrlt>es a parallel case in Matthew IS. A man owing a king ton thousand talents, and having no means to pay it, was release* rrom his debt, but afterwards manifesting cruelty to a fellow-servant, "Ills lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors till he should pay all that was due him." as he could never pay the ten thousand talents, and therefore never leave his prison, this prison cannot refer to purgatory, but hell, because purgatory is a temporary place of punishment, gad where, according to the t'oanctl of Trent, "the souls therein detained are helped by the suffrages 01 the laltbful, but priucipaliy by the acceptable sacrifice of the altar.*' Second?This text cannot refer to purgatory, because it expressly says, "Thou shalt not go out tbeuce till thou (mark that word "thou;" in thine own person others cannot help you pay it) repay the last farthing." The Kngllsh Bible says, "Thou shalt by ao means come out," and the Catholic Bible attests its truth; but Trent, knowing better than the author of tha Bible, contradicts them all when it says there are means, and these means the "suffrages" of the lalthlul. Kvou the author of the Book of Maccabees seems to have been entirely ignorant of the great efficacy possessed by the "suffrages" of tlic faithful in releasing souls from purgatory, lor the only remedy he recommended for the "purpose was simply prayer; but then prayer is not so "profitable" to the Church as the suffrages of the faithful, and that, you know, makes all the difference in the world. With respect to the second text brought forward by father Vahey in support of the doctriue 1 . I would say that it eai by no possibility reler to pnr1 gatory, and for the following four substantial reai sons:? I F1r*t?The Apostle states that this lire "shall try I overy man's work;" but the tire of pergatory, ac- | I cording to father Vahey himself, is not for "try! tng," but for purifying; so thai the fire of which the Apostle speaks can by no means reler to pur; gatory. I Second?The text cannot relate to purgatory, because the fire here spoken of Is to test every inun's , ; "work," whereas purgatory is to purify every maa's "soul." Thiril?\\ will lie observed that. U la "every" man's I work; hut. as< atholics themselves-admlt that "all" I do not go to purgatory, it cauuot be urged in behalf 1 of the (lootrine. Fourth? It is evident that the Apoatlc uses a i figure, for he does uot say "shall be saved by tire," but "so aa bv Areand this tlgure Is used repeatedly throughout the Bible, tor the prophet Zachai rlab represents Joshua as a "brand plneked out. of the burning," that Is, saved, "so as by Are." Having shown that the passives quoted by the I reverend Father in support oi the doctrine can by no possibility apply to purgatory, but most as! auredly refer to hell ns the Anal and stily pitice of ! punishment, and having already occupied a much larger space than I had intended, I must now tiring this letter to a close. Should I feel so Inclined I I may again take up the subject and show, what has i been purposely admitted here, that, so lar ironi I supporting the doctrine of purgatory, the Word of I 1 fiod absolutely precludes the possibility of such a i place. Meantime i suggest to my Korean Catholic brethren the propriety or carefully studying the Hlble, and thereby be aole to answer intelligently I nnd satisfactorily for themselves the question, I "Does the Bible teach the doctrtne oi Purgatory?" A PROTEST AST. Biblical Uraenloftical Records. To tnk Editor op inn IIrrai.d:? A reader of the Hkrai.d would like ta inqnire of your correspondents on "theological conundrums" whether they, In tracing their ancestry, wonld loek to the genealogical records or their own parents or to those of stepfathers, (f so fortunate aa to have . Whjci&tivif. rre are tola that VILJAk K HERALD, SUNDAY, Mj | the father of Jesus, and, If not, what la the use of dragging In Ms genealogical record to prove the descent ol JC3UN from David and Abraham T Ah well may the friends of Colfax quote the ancestral records of Mr. Matthews to prove that Schuyler haw descended from tho man who would not deny that he cut flown the oherry tree with IiIh little hatchet.

Since Joseph was not lus father it could only be through ii.s mother that lie could trace His lineage to David." t\ TJ. 15. \ "Poor, Ufnl^htcil PajiiHt" in li' irMnlt or Knowledge. Tp rnii Kiiiroit ok tuk IIriialuv? In your issue oi the id Inst, appeared a letter headed, "The Young Men's Christian Assoclailon in Want of a Creed," and signed "J. It. I,amoureux." As I do not happen to lie one ol those young men to whom your correspondent so pathetl want; of a "creed," my interference in the matter msv, at drat .sight, bo deemed somewhat out of place. Hut the letter contains much that 1 cannot understand, ami, as the writer appears phllanthroptcally disposed, I, relying on the well known Impartiality or the Hkkai.d, venture to trouble him to let tn a little light on some of the statements and opinions, to the adoption of which he seeuis so anxious to win the reader. Perhaps 1 ought to state here that I am a poor, benighted Papist, associated, probably, in the gentleman's mind with the "dark ages of ignorance and superstition," or, to use his scientific imagery, one of those "losslls ol' some very ancient geological formation," or, perhaps, another Hip Van Winkle dazzled with the glare or this resplendent age. Such belng^ th^ cpse it will be readily perceived how difficult it is, from my standpoint at least, to discover the slightest particle of truth, reason or common sense in the lollowing passage, taken at random irem the letter in question, tie says:? The old I ami marks ol orthodoxy arc fast disappearing under the swelling tide of that great sou of scientific and religious knowledge which goes ou rising it ml rising in spite st all agitation and opposition. The Church is advancing in knowledge, II uol in laith and piety, or. rnllier, it is returning lo the lauti of the Apostles, to that purity and simplicity of doctrine of the primitive Church, from which It had departed during the dark ages of igno ranee and superstition. And then ho gives us some Idea of what he considers the "purity and simplicity of doctrine" in the Apostolic age, as well us what lie regards as a "striking example" of the truth of the above, bv referring exulcingly to ?ne l)r. True, "who," he says, "was not afraid to enter his protest against what he rightly believes to be an error, boldly rejecting it, notwithstanding its popularity or antiquity. 1 mean," he adds, "the old, erroneous doctrine of the immortality of the soul, such as taught and believed by most preachers of the present day I" I protest this gentleman utterly astounds me. I could understand a thorough going infidel denying the existence of a Supreme lieing, ridiculing the idea of immortality and of a future state of reward and punishment as cunning devices of "priestcraft" ami brunding Christ and Ills Apostles as myths or impostors; but Mr. Lamourcux Is beyond my comprehension. lie talks glibly and with a show of approval of "the Church" and of "reli giuii, w line, uii nit; uuicr uauu, lie buikcs hi me very rundamcutal principle ol all religion.aud morality. Will lie please tell us what he really men as hy "the Church," and also why ho makes faith and piety of less account in whatever he means by said church than knowledge? Will ne, too, pomt out to us where the faith oft,he Apostles involves a rejection of the doctriue of tbe immortality ol the soul, or where they ever "entered their protest" against it, though even in their age it could boast its antiquity, if not popularity? I, lu luy simplicity, had imagined Hie Apostles were sent to preach the gospel of the life, death and resurrection of their Divine Muster for the redemption of man. The redemption of what ? The mere body ? Surely not; lor, if so, then indeed was their mission, both in its-operation and results, a stupendous failure, for were not their bodies, as our Lord had foretold, as well as Chose of countless hosts of their disciples and successors, during age alter age even to the present, scourged, gibbeted, burned, subjected to every form of indignity, persecution, torture aud death t And all lor what ? Will he, in the much abused name of common sense, in form us what logical meaning would remain in the Christian religion 11 you expurge the doctrino of the Itumortalitv of the soul ? Yours respectlully, Brooklyn, March 11, l?73. 11. BAMBEIt. Another Answer to s Pertinent (Question. To tue Editor ok the Herald:? Your Newark correspondent, In the Herald of March 9, under the heading of "A Very Pertinent question," asks some one to explain the origin ?r evil. When the work or creation was completed God pronounced it good. "Evil is only the perversion of good." Adam and Eve remained In Eden wlnia they submitted to the control of ttie Divine Spirit, the .Spirit that still knocks for admittance at the door of evfery linmun heart. Uy the exercise or our own wills we keep tho door closed and governed by our weak human judgment; passions created in love become strong to destroy, is it any imputation against "the wondrous love of God'" Mi at when He created man He lorcsaw the consequences ot the power thus to use Ills own will t Without this power man would be only 1111 automaton; with it he may, If he will, choose to be governed by the love of God, and the very will which in tin unregencrate state leads into all evil allies the human nuturc to the Divine. Thus we are born again, and. not through condemnation but through love, come to realize tho bliss of Eden. Every passion is good because every one is controlled by pure affection. The poet who speaks of suffering humanity, steeped to the lips in misery, longing, yet ufraid to die, has no conception of this stute, a state in which we know that the kingdom of heaven is wulun us. Always supported by tms Divine presence we shall not look impatiently across the river of death or when our time conies greet with fear the pale messenger; for the loving kindness that has blessed us here we shall feel assured will follow us hereafter. 8. E. G. St. Joseph's Female Orphan Asylum, Brooklyn. This new house, on Willoughby add Yates avenues, new nearly completed, will be ready for ocen* pancy as soou as the necessary articles of furniture, bedding, Ac., shall have been procured by the ladies who have so kindly promised to devote their time in soliciting contributions for this neblo charity. The asylum will afford room for 2,000 orphans and the bisters of Charity who will have charge of them. This institution will only receive children under eleven years old; alter that age they will be transferred to the old asylum on Congress and Clinton Htreets, in connection with which is the Industrial .school, where they will learn trades and household work until tuey are able to earn their owu living. This Industrial School was established some sixteen years ago through the zeal and energy ol Sister Constantia, who still remains in charge. The school is self-supporting. There are now 350 orphans waiting for admittance to the new asylum. It is, therefore, to bo hoped that all will assist in luruishing the same and contribute generously. House iurnishing goods of every description will be thankfully received at the Industrial School, corner of Clinton una congress Hireeis. The names of the ladles who will call for donations will be made known in a lew days through the columns of the press. Ministerial Movements. ROMAN CATHOLIC. The remains of the ancient sanctuary of the Transfiguration have been recently discovered on tbe summit of Mount Tabor. It is reported that some pious persons intend rebuilding the venerable chnrch and restoring it to Catholic worship. The Jesuit Mission in St. Charles llorrumco's church, Brooklyn, has closed alter producing the most gratifying results.

EPISCOPALIAN. The Bishop of Manchester, England, has rebuked the ritualism of some of the clergy iu his diocese who had been indulging iu mediaeval mummeries. He said that lie had heard with shame and confusion ol face that a banner had been carried in one of his churches on which was inscribed, "The (jueen or Heaven." While he rejoiced te see a revival of reverence, devotion and piety, he could not countenance au imitation of the practices ol the thirteenth century. The Episcopalians have purchased a plot ol six lots at Richmond Hill, and propose at an early day to erect thereon a new church, for which collections will be made throughout the dioceso of Long Island.
