t L L Rev. A. J. McGewu Editor. VICTORIA TEXAS: SATURDAY FEBRUARY 6 1847. Christianity proved by Geology. The Christian religion stands pre-eminent ameng all the religions of the earth for having withstood everv attack that has been made upon it. No matter in what quarter these attacks have originated whether they hare come from the Philo- sophical moralist who reasoning from his abstract notions of the goodness of God (notions by the bye borrowed from the Bible) has presumed to pronounce the deal- ings of the God of the Bible with his crea- tures as inconsistent with the eternal prin- ciples of justice whether they have come from the carping sceptic who with his qucrks and his quibbles has aimed to sneer at the profoundest system of wisdom aJ truth which the world ever saw into ridi- cule and contempt whether they have come from Uc gra nistorir.n who has p- they were to give Christianity her death- stab they pretended to find in the wonder- ful developments of this new science evi-...

I have no recol- lection even of familiar furniture; all eke is in the back ground save the brightly pol- ished tabic the glowing fire and the group beside it. I could at this moment were I there point out the very spot where my mother sat: my father was opposite to her; and before him lay open upon the table what seemed to my inexperienced compre- hension of size a large vcrv lame book : while I a little bo' stood by his side.

1 k Kcr. A. "J. MeCtewv stjiltr.- VICTORIA TEXAS: ATURDAY. FEBRUARY 13 1M7. Cfcrftsttsmtty prove sy CtoeJevy. We sstumsd in our last number that Geology had done More to sustain tho'ati thenticity of the Bible than all other sciences. Before we proceed to the proof J f our position we must ask the attention four readers to a few preliminary remarks which we conceive" necessary to a true Comprehension of the subject. The great and sole object of Revelation is to teach the character of God to man; and to make known his will concerning mans conduct in life and his destiny in eternity. It is no part of its object to teach science to man or in other words to explain to him the laws of nature. Any reference to nat- ural laws made in the Bible is only made incidentally and for the purpose of illustrat ing some truth or referred to historically as fact; and in such cases they are referred - toand described as they were generally understood .at the time and hot. for the purpose of giving the...

What- ever defects there may be in the organiza- tion or the proceedings of any of our liter- ary and scientific associations it cannot be doubted that they are all calculated to do much good. The good we venture to say will always overbalance the evil: and this remark will especially apply to all institu- tions founded to promote the education of children. A thirst for knowledge cannot be too early excited in the human mind provided due care be taken that the tender faculties of the child be not excessively tasked be not called upon for exertions beyond their natural strength to bear. Slow and sure advances arc the best for children as a general rule; and moreover the child in general should be permitted to judge how much study he or she can daily bear. To give a child any task whatever with a positive order to accomplish it in a given time is wrong because in nine times out of ten it may bo warfare...
