SATURDAY, JUNE 26, 1875. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 26 June 1875

SATUR AY, JUNE 26, 1875. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. Or the numerous societies which have come into existence during the past two years, there is scarcely one more entitled to charitable recognition, and public support, than that which has for its especial object the prevention of cruelty to animals. In all other associations, which immediately affect humanity, the sufferers usually find some person to espouse their interests, and bring their claims or circumstances, under the cognizance of boards of directors, or general committees; but, in the animal kingdom, the sufferers are mute, and cannot render their complaints audible, It is usually conceded that, next to those of our species who are deprived of reason, our sympathies are generally more power fully enlisted for such members of the human family as are incapable of speech. The deaf, the blind, and the dumb, have uunquestionable claims upon the benovolence of hll persons who possess not only an unrestricted use of all their faculties,...

ROMANS, CAP. 14, VERSES 5 & 6, AND THE SABBATH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 26 June 1875

ROMANS, CAP. 14, VERSES 5 & 6, AND THE SABBATH. TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIIE HIEROURY. Sir-In your issue of Saturday last, you state that "a writer in England has quoted the above Scriptures in favor of a non observance of 'the Sabbath and as Mr. :Woods' motion in the Victorian Legislative Assembly. has provoked opposition from Sabbatarians, it 'would be' well if the ministers! wh6 are now officiating in the 'various 'churches in the Colony would courteously undertake to preach sermons or deliver discourses from those texts, ' with the view of showing' whether St. Paul's interpretation is favorable to the oninion which ignore the claims and duties of the Sabbath." Now, admitting, for the sake of argu ment, that the Scriptures quoted refer to the Sabbath, I must call your attention to the fact that the word "alike,'" in'the 5th verse, is printed in the New Testament in italics, which means, as nearly everybody knows, that it is not in the original Scrip. tures, but is supplied by t...

IERE AiND HEREAFTER: OR, PAST, PRESENT, AiD FUTURE. Being a key to "Lazarus of Bethany." An original Essay by ANDIEW TISMBRELL. Mr. FINNEY appears in liis own person, to ephitomizo an embodiment of the apothegm that a carnal mind is always at enmity against GOD: he is likewise, a modern illustration of.what the Stilddiceo was iti the days of the Advent, inasmuch that,he,applies the finite measurements of corporeal sense to concerns which involve an. intrinsi cally 'spiriual ' : signification. 'IHe advances only such arguments. as can be drawn 'from prejudiced writers of his own. proclivities, and exhibits, to both ithe scholastic and.. th 'Christian world, the. attitude of a man who arrogantly assumes the position of an umpire regarding the spiritual kingdom. It is much to be regretted. that.ho should have drawn so largely upon the capacious resources of a material intellect for the very questionable object of parading his unbelief..
