Letter No. 6 from Japan. [Newspaper Article] — Elevator — 21 February 1868
Letter No. 6 from Japan. Kanagawa, Yokohama, ) Japan, Jan. 23, 1867. [ Mr. Editor :—The opportunity is again afforded me of penning my sixth correspondence from the above port. I have nothing remarkably strange to write you, except it be that War is the leading staple product of this part of creation at the present time—Cain in quest of his brother Abel. Prince against Prince, and Tycoon against the Princes. It is in the order of the new development that the very meth ojs of civilization exemplify themselves by the decisive means of war. llow sin gular are the ways of Providence, and what to us, apparently injudicious causes, effect important things ; yet the same causes are the pre-destined evolutions of an omnipresent God. New Year's in Yokohama presented itself in the form of barrenness in friendship, amusements and novelties. All were interested in the one thought of Hiogo and Osacca—of the friends there, and of the probabilities of success in the newly opened ports. All there w...

I For Ibe Elevator. IMMAMEL. Article 7th. God with us in Europe. Concluded. The languages called Indo-European, or Indo-Persian, show an early migration from Southern and Western A Ma in a north-western direction into Europe, and an inter-marriage with the aboriginal inhabitants. Providence appears to have placed the Israelites in the current of this j emigration in order that they might be I carried along with it. The stream seems : to have divided into two branches, the 1 one passing into Europe on the east and 1 north of the Black Sea, along the south ■em slope of the Caucasian mountains, and the other on the south and west of that sea, through those provinces of Asia 1 Minor in which were the " strangers " to whom Peter addressed his epistk'6 in the direction of Thrace, Macedonia arid Dalmatia.
