of the sectaries would have come to
naught if the doctrine of - the Catholic
Church and the authority of the Roman,
Pontiffs, both with princes and with
people, had always remained in due hon?
or, for "the Church of the living God,"
which is "the pillar and ground of the
truth," teaches those very doctrines and
precepts by which the safety and quiet
of society are to be preserved, and the
horrible plant of socialism plucked'out

peat, as we admit, that all men are equal
by nature, one with another, and on
this account they contend that neither
are honor and reverence due to majesty
nor obedience to laws, unless perchahce
they themselves may have been pleased
to sanction them, (htrariwiseaccord
ing to the Evangelic teachings, jthe

equality in authority and power flows
from tne very iutnor 01 nature, oi
whom all paternity in heaven and earth
is named." Moreover, following the
Catholic doctrine and precepts, the souls
of princes and subjects are so linked to
gether by mutual duties and obligations
that both the lust of arbitrary power is
tempered and the habit of obedience is
made easy,-stable, and most ennobling.
Indeed, the Church sedulously incul
cates upon the subjected multitude the
apostolical precept: "There is no power
but from God; and those that are or
dained of God. Therefore, he that re-
sisteth the power resisteth the ordinance
of God j and they that resist purchase to
themselves damnation." AhoVagain, it
bids them "be subjected of necessity,
not only for ' wrath, but also for con
science sake ;" and to render uto all raen
their dues ; tribute to whom tribute is
due ; custom to whom custom ; fear to
whom fear; honor to whom honor."
For so He , who created and. governs all
things ordered In' His foreseeing wis
dom that the lowest through the mid
most the midmost through the highest,
should each attain .the ends appointed
them. ' Therefore, ' as in the heavenly
kingdom itself, He decreed that there
should be distinct, choirs of angels, the
one subject to the other; so also in the
Church He nstituted divers grades t f
orders and a diversity of offices, so that
not all should be apostles, not all doc
tors, not all pastors; so also He ordain
ed that there should be in civil society
many orders diverse in dignity, jurist
diction, and power; so that the State
even as the Church, might be one body

noble than others; but 1 mutually nec

riences. For you know, venerable
brethrenj that the true.;fouadation of
this society according t$ taie necessity

grounded in the indissoluble union of a
man and woman, and is built up in the

of socialism; just as also the firmness
being lost which it acquires from a re

and the duties of the child towards its

According to the command of Joshua of old, al

Trade Street, opposite the Market House, plus

llumlnates the surrounding atmosphere, which in

"A fleeting show,
To man's illusion given,'
Once on a time, In another Hemisphere, "Man's
Illusion" was checkmated and fanaticism stamped
out in the Holy Wars of the Cross vs. the Crescent,
(the Crusades). Two million men were killed and
a pyramid was erected from the bones from one
bat&e-fleld alone, near Nleve. by Solrman. as a
monument to their fanaticism, and the Saracens
drank beer but of their skulls. Since then, fol
lowing the Reformation, in Christian conflicts (so
called,) fifty million more were slain "aflby Di
vine appointment," making probably In all, 100.
000,000 who have victimized themselves to their
faith. Peter the Hermit had nothiner to do with
the latter conflicts. He had Peter'd out some time
previous. The present Hermit who runs the
is pleased to say that he has received his stock
since Christinas, and has now on hand FERRY'S
CELEBRATED GARDEN SEEDS (warranted to
come up without the crusade of your neighbor's
chickens), In addition to his stock of Candies, Nuts
Raisins, Coffee, Teas, Sugar, Molasses, Flour.Lard,
Sardines, Canned Fruits, Apples and Oranges. In
fact everything kept in a Confectionery and Gro
