On the 81st of July, 1861. when tto

Beauregard was straining every energy to

small inferior torse. He ssluted him and
courteously said: "General. I beard of

transferred t tlio sutff of Gen. Bragg.
He did not Bfco the peculiarities of thst

Cooper for an active and accomplished

This is an age of development, if not of

INFIDELITY THE RESULT OF
IGNORANCE.
A correspondent of the Church Union
savs : Lord .Littleton and Gilbert West
were, at they supposed, fixed in tbeir
principles of infidelity, and were persuad
ed that Christianity was an imposture.
Under this persuasion, they were deter
mined to expose the cheat by writing crit
inisint nn tbe New Testomeut, snd expos
inc its errors snd human invention. Mr,
West choose tho resurrection as a subject
for writing and publication. Lord Little
ton chose tbo lite of St. Paul. Having
commenced tbe examination, surveyed ,he
field of inquiry, nnd reflected hum the
various parts of their suhj-cts, they saw,
as tbey proceeded, new light breaking in
unoii their minds, and the fore oTtruth
overpowering their understanding, ttoy
were soon hsvuvhl to pause. Tto re-
tuft of their separate toteinptt was truly
extraordinary. They were both convert
ed by their endeavors tn overthrow the
truth of Christianity, and becnme ss emi
nent for piety as they were for loiters,
. Sir Isaac Newton set out in life su in
fidel ; but on a cipse examination of tbe
evidences ot Christianity, to found rea
son to change bis opiuions. When tto
celebrated 11 alley was talking infidelity
before htm, Sir Isaac addressed him to
the following effect : "Dr. Halley, I am
always glad to bear yon spssk about ass
