——oa————■MlaiiliMMM——i THE PRESS. MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 28, 1873. KVriJiV regular attache of the Paisas la furnished with a card certificate countersigned by Stanley X. Pi&ldn, Editor. All railway, steamboat and bote managers will confer a favor upon ns by demanding credentials of even person claiming to represent our Jour.ml, as we have information that several um mers” are seeking courtesies lu tbonaroe o Prkss, and we have no disposition to be, ovcn Wely. a party to such fraod. V. do not read anonymous letters and comrouni cuU ms. The name and address of the writer are in nil oHf*ei io IIspo ab e, not necessarily for publication but us a gaaranty ofgood faith. W: cannot undertake to return or re erve com raunicauous that arc not used. We iegret to learn that cx-Governor Coburn la again suffering from a relapse of his long and severe sickness. The Star of yesterday was an unusually bright and full number. Its editor is a jour nalist of experience, culture and talent, and makes a very readable Sunday paper. The New York Herald prints a quintuple I sheet about every Sunday, which contain one hundred and twenty columns, thirty-seven being reading. Life is too brief and fitful to allow one t > do justice to such papers In one of our eastern cities there is a phy sician '.r.:ll along in years, quite as famous for fierce philippics as persuasive pellets. On being iuformed not long since that two gen tlem-'^been elected to direct municipal affairs that he deemed the worst possible, he exclaimed with much energy and feeling: “God has resigned.” A Washington despatch says that ex Congressman Peters of this Stite and Cox of New York, have notified the Secretary of the Treasury that their $6000 of back pay will not be drawn from the Treasury. This is no more than we might expect ol Judge Peters but who is the next volunteer in this select com pany? The New York Assembly has passed a bill which suppresses the prize packages boy, his unwholesome candy and brass jewelry on rail* road trains in that State. Our careful law givers sent a prohibition at the industrious prize package boy in their annual budget of 1872, but so long as three card monte Is play ed in opeu defiance of the law it isn’t worth while to trouble the Industrious peddler, though he is a perpetual terror to nervous people. AEvrstromthe Indian country should al ways be received with great allowance, for the reason that it Is very often manufactured by interested parties. Under the incitement of the Modoc trouble, the men on the fron tiers who fatten off of Indian wars, just now see their opportunity to exasperate the coun try against this unfortunate people and con sequently there will come to the press, rumor after rumor of Indians on the “war path” and a general “Indian war” and scores of stories of thefts and murders to be contra dicted in time from Washington. The fact that the Grand Lodge of Good Templars should pass resolutions denouncing the cider legislation, so called, of last year is natural and consistent, but the fact that the gentleman who introduced the resolution and most persistently advocated it in the re cent meeting was the same one who, as a member of the committee of the State Tem perance Convention to present its view.) be fore the Legislature, asked that body to take the very action on the questfon that it did, is passing strange. In view of these facts it appears that the Rev. Mr. Randall took this very round about method to denounce himself. At any rate,' the gentleman appears to have seriously compromised his consistency. The British Government now has another inter-national question to solve, growing out of the fact that the Carlists in Loudon are openly soliciting and receiving money which is to be devoted to the cause of that faction in Spain. The Spanish minister has taken note of the fact and entered the protest of his gov ernment against the act and demanding that the British authorities take measures to have it discontinued as Spain regards it as a violation of international law. Mr. Gladstone does not so regard it and sees no way of hindering people giving money to whatever cause they choose. Some of the leading English papers, however, arc of the opinion that the act comes within the scope of the rules laid down at Geneva and would cause Great Britain trouble in the future were Spain a more pow erful nation. The latest accounts from Spain too plainly Indicate that the greatest danger of the Re public lies In the aissentions of the ambitious and intriguing men whose only aspiration is to rule. Thus far the people of the country have shown a disposition to support the republic and defend it against its ene mies. It has been demonstrated that the Carlists could make no stand against the gov ernment were the so called friends and cham pions of the Republic patriotic, united and devoted (o the true interests of the country. But they are not, and judging from the past there is no reason to expect that they will be, and in this fact lies the danger that is almost inevitable. The people will soon become weary with the unceasing strife and in their despair will cling to any power that will promise peace. Is we remember correctly, Mr. Washington Gilbert of Bath was extremely anxious that the State should avail itself of his ser vices as one of the Justices of the Supreme Court. Judging from a “card” published in the Bath Times by Mr. Gilbert, he has not suceeeded in convincing His Excellency of his fitness and if he continues to write such “open letters” those who have heretofore sup ported him will begin to wonder why they ever did it. Thus Mr. Gilbert shows Jus ju U1UM ^IMUUl/D • “Although again overthrown in ray person, rthis, your last effort, by ertraordinary cir jumstances, you are not slain. The record of the people of this county in every duty as citizens, and for heroic patrotism in every period of dismay and distress, cannot lie sur passed by that of any community. Remain steadfast. Be true to God and your country and true to your manhood, and the day of the redemption from the partizan bondage, which has hitherto held us, will at length gome.” Isn’t this a bit florid for the bench? A Washington despatch says that cx Senator John Pool who hasn’t received a cabinet portfolio, a foreign mission, or any good place, has become head centre ol “The Workingmen of America”—an organ ization that has spread itself over twenty states. It is further asserted that it is the same crowd of hard working people that nominated Mr. Justice Davis of the Uni'ed States Supreme Court in the winter of 1872. People may have forgotten about the fact, there were so many candidates, but the name of that hard fisted yeoman will be found in the multitude jf his million and a half of shekels isn’t discoverable in the tax lists of 1 u CTtry- The Washington managers, ™ C.°.^C8C are *«*y hacks in bad luck, as s r a ie old war horses of both parties fhev'srp^rH5- ^ l“.e orS*®'*ation, which trial interesuTf 'the 2? *“ J? iudu.3 to plant such parties now, and when™ 7Jl movement comes up like the anti ! monopoly in the West, it is uot ukely Zt the people in earnest will select a ,ot “ worthless fellows to lead them. ____________ South Windham.—It is reported that the magnificent water power at South Windham, on the line of the Portland and Ogdcnsburg Railroad will soon be examined by a wealthy manufacturing company of Massachusetts, with a view of occupying the same. It is a matter of surprise that such a power has re mained unoccupied so long. To settle a bet a petition was recently pre sented for signature to a worthy citizen of De troit, Micb., praying for tho abolition of the fire and police departments and his own execu tion. He glanced at the first few lines and put down bis name. Mr. Back’s Sermon. Park stieet church was closely filled yester dal hy nn audience representing all shades of religions opinion, to listen to a sermon from tho pastor, Bev. Mr. Buck, evoked by the attack which had beeu made upon his Easter sermon in the Second Parish East Pay meeting, and elsewhere—the accusation of infidelity and heresy having beeu freely made, and a very general jiuhlic attention having been directed to the matter, which afforded an opportunity for the pastor to speak on tho subject of CHKISTIAJilTY AKD IFIDELITY. The sermon was from the following text: But this I confess nnto thee, that after the man ner which they call heresv, so worship I the God of my Fathers—Acts. 21, H. The preacher opened with a statement that be had no war to wage with persons but only wi'h ideas; for, although he was to speak of infidel ity, and the term “infidel” is in common uso an epithet of arrogant offensiveness, bearing a charge of wickedness and a flavor o in. u , and so is a convenient missile for wordy war file, it is not at all in that bad sense that ,t concerns us to day'. Wo said could the better class of my theolog ica?opponents but see with what heavy reluct { disagree with them in matters so import ant lmw unwilling I am to stand publicly in opposition to the views of men whose personal worth 1 so much respect, they would see also tb" power of the conviction which compels me. I desire to be at peace with them and with men of every class; and while I am ready always cheerfully to take such part as I may lie able in an earnest and honorable conflict of opinions, I am convinced that nothing is gained to Chris tian edification by brawling with the brawler, or striking with the striker. Our principal subject is Christianity; for In fidelity is simply rejection of Christianity. If we would know then wliat specific negatives constitute Infidelity, we must ask what nega tives amount to rejection of Christianity, and at once we meet the question, What is Christiani ty? The speaker went on to show by quotations from Chunder See, the Hindoo reformer, and llichard Baxter, what varieties of doctrine are included under the term Christianity. Prior to entering upon the main question, he discussed what he called “Protestant Infallibility,” and in this connection adduced sharp criticisms of the assumption of infallibility of dogma from Bishop Watson, an Episcopalian, S. T. Coler idge, and the following from Bishop Hoadly of the Episcopal church in a satirical address to the Pope: “We have all sufficiently felt the load of the two topics of heresy and schism. We have been persecuted, hanged, burned, massa cred (as your holiness well knows) for heretics and schismatics. But all this hath not made us sick of those two words. We can still throw them about us, and play them off upon others, as plentifully and as fiercely as they are dispen sed to us from your quarter. You thunder out the sentence agaiust us. IFe think it ill man ners to give it you back again; but we throw it out upon the next brethren that come in our way; and they upon others; and so it goes round till some perhaps have sense andcourage enough to throw it hack upon those who first begun the disturbance by pretending to authority where there can be none.” He said he was sorely tempted to multiply order that he might show more conclusively than by his own speech, wliat a ludicrously weak and foolish thing those are afraid of, who, almost yielding to a noble and enlightening doubt, turn pale with apprehension lest some man, or some church, or some churches, or all churches should call them as the pagans called the early Christians, infidel and atheist. He admitted the presumption in favor of the correctness of the opinions held by the majori ty, and proceeded to show by what considera tions that presumption is annulled. He added, I will introduce, in this connection, but one oth er quotation with which I may fitly close this branch of the lubject. And if there is any on* who, by reason of longing for sympathy, that “gregarious instinct” of which I have spoken, is exposed to being wounded, aggrieved or intimi dated by epithet or excommunication from any who deal in those matters,let him attend to these words of Bishop Hare of the Episcopal church, and take courage: “Every mean person who has nothing to recommend him but bis orthodoxy, and owes that perhaps wholly to his ignorance, will think (if you venture to publish au unfash ionable opinion) he has a right to trample upon you with contempt, to asperse your character with virulent reflections, to run clown your writ ings as mean and pitiable performances, and give hard names to opinions which he does not understand.”]—Sparks’ Collection^ v. 2, p. 178.] Resuming the question “What is Christiani ty?” he defined it in the most general terms as “the religion which was revealed to man in Jesus,” which was his own religion since it could not he revealed in him unless it existed in him. Jesus’ religion was “devotedness to the will of God, as revealed to his own spiritual discernment.” If then, that was his religion, that is Christianity; and it follows that whoev er cherishes devotedness to the will of God, as that will is in any way revealed to his discern ment, he is a Christian. In that sense of the word, Matthew Tiudal well might claim that “Christianity [is] as old as the creation;” and Augustine said well that “what is now called the Christian religion, has existed among the ancients, aud was not ab sent from the beginning of the human race un til Christ came in the flesh, from which time the true religion which existed already began to be called Christian.” And with similar under standing of Christianity, Justin Martyr, one of the earliest fathers of the church, said that “those who live according to the Word [Logos], are Christians, notwithstanding they may pass with you for atheists. Such araoDgthe Greeks were Socrates and Horakleitos aud the like. The speaker at this point made a digression to say that all dogma, as such, is put out of court by this definitiou. There is no occasion, if this view of Christianity prove to be tenable, to dispute with any one concerning doctrines of Trinity, Atonement, Depravity, Original Sin in finite Guilt or Apostolic Succession—no occasion for the hatred, persecutions and cruelties which other interpretations of Christianity have in spired; no occasion when a doubt of accepted doctrine is declared for the petty wrath that sputters frothy in the public walks, or for the heroic venture where one rashes, all undismay ed, to assume the mission of defender *f tue faith. One may hesitate to affirm that there was a physical resurrectiou of Jesus, nay, one may even unequivocally reject that narrative, and may still, according to Augustine and Jus tin Martyr, be a Christian. Proceeding to define more particularly, he confirmed from Jesus’ words the general definitiou already- given and quoted further corroborative testimonies from George Eliot in Middiemarcli, Henry Ward Beacher, Rev. Dr. Thompson, rector of Christ Church,New York, Rev. Mr. Martiueau and Dean Stanley, the celebrated English divine. He continued: “And now, my friends, I show you a marvel. Christianity as here de fined, proved and confirmed by illustrious tes timonies is intolerantly rejected by men who assert a special and peculiar title to the Christ ian name! To them Christianity is something other than that or it is nothing. If any one shall venture, before them, to declare his belief in only this Christianity,there are examples enough to teach him what to ex pect; lie will not he surprised when the words “heretic” and “infidel” arc flung towards him with pious malice and impotent zeal. After a brief exuortation to independence of thought and action in religious matters, he pro ceeded to quote from Abraham Liucolu aud Dean Stanley, a description of the probable church of the future, founded on the two com mandments of Jesus, and closed as follows: Such undoubtedly will bo the church of the future;aud the triumphs of Christianity are de layed until that day shall rise; the day when differences of theological opinion may he ami cably considered. When “theological hate” shall have become an extinct volcano, when every branch of the Christian vine shall confess its nurture from the common soil of humanity, when creeds shall have lost their sanctity as Christian tests, and the truth shall be acknowl edged that “Reiieion nuro unchanged m spirit, though ns forms and codes Wear myriad modes, Contains all creeds within its mighty span,— The lore of God, displayed in love to mail.” North Conway.

Thebes mclicftt advice being in attendance, I was taken through, the fever; but it left mo terribly reduc ed and weak, with excruciating pains in my side, back and hips I was completely prostrated with Kidney Complaint, and no medicine seemed to reach my case. In this condition I was persuaded to try VEGE TINE by a friend whom it cured of the same disease, and it seemed as though I could ieel the effect oi the first dose through my whole system; and from that moment I began t > mend, gradually growing better from day to-day; and I followed on with the VEGE TINE. until it completely restored me to health, since which time I have been able to perform my duties as a police officer, enjoying good health: and there is no doubt about the great value of VEGETINE in Kid ney Complaint and similar diseases.

Read the followiaijj Wonderful Cures iu Maine: Dr. Urann, who has made so many wonderful cures in this town and others, will remaiu iu town but a short t irae longer. Ho has had good success. The ca^e of Mr. J. B. ltedman, Attorney at Law in this town, is truly a wonderful one, when Dr. Urann was called to see him a week ago Fiiday, he was not able to turn himself in bed; he is now able to walk the street and is daily gaining strength.—[Ellsworth American. The above statement, so far as I am concerned, is but the simple truth, and I cheerfully endorse it as an act of justice to Dr. Urann, and earnestly recom mend all persons afflicted with Rheumatism, Neu ralgia. or other kindred complaints, whether acute or chronic, to give him a call, being sanguine that he will cure them. JOHN B. REDMAN. Ellsworth, Jan. 7, 1873. Tills will certify that I was troubled wilh Sciatic Rheumatism and suffered great paiu, was unable to sleep without taking morphine, could not walk. I was carried to Dr. Uraim’s office, at the DeWitt House, and after one treatment was free from pain, and have been able to work ever since. A. W. BAILEY. Auburn, May 7,1869. Lewiston, May 7, I860. This will certify that I bad lost tbo use of my lowor limbs and was unable to walk or oven stand, had several physicians who pronounced my case incura ble. He iring of Dr. Urann’a Wonderful Cures, I sent for him. In less than a week was able to walk in tho streets, and can now walk two miles daily. JAMES F. BRADBURY. Ellsworth, Oct. 8,1857. To the MAcniA.s Republican.—Gents:—As Dr, Urann, of Boston, is about visiting your place, and a stranger in these parts, I know very well, like most physicians traveling, ho will be looked upon with sus picion, particularly as his cures look miraculous. I had been obliged to walk on crutches for one year, and for nine months wa » not able to put my foot to the floor. My spine and arm were also so lame as to nearly disable me. I could not dress or undress my self, or get oft the bed without heir*. He treated my case last Friday morning, and in less than an hour after I was able to walk home, a distance ot nearly half a mile, up hill, without crutches, and have been gaining ever since. J. K.
