Tho Now Yotk Sun, speaking of
probablo immigration, says: "This
promises to be the greatest year for
immigration wo have over kjown.
Tho arrivals for the first quarter are
far ahead of thoso for tho correspond
ing period of 1S80, and yet tho season
whou immigration is most active is
only just approaeiiing. indications are
that the number landed at Castle Gul
den for tho whole year will equal half
a million. In Germany thoro never
before has been so so indent and wide
spread a desire for emigration as now,
and extra steamers' have all their ac
commodations engaged far ahead."
When tho Democrats succeeded to a
majority in tho U. 8. Senate, they wore
not slow in ousting tho Republican of
ficers of tho SenUite. Union soldiers,
however meritorious, or maimed by
rebel bullets, had to got out, and at
once, to inal.o places for ex-roni"dor-ates.
Now the tables are ugain turned ;
Demoera'jy is in tho minority, and tho
Republicans demanding a reorganiza
tion of tho Scnato officials, and tho
submission of tho minority to tho ma
jority, tho Democrats resist, and by fil
ibustering prevent any business to bo
dono except what they choose to havo
done. Tho Republicans, assert' ng and
maintaining tho r'ght of majority rulo,
will not permit any confirmations or
other business until tho Sonato officers
aro elected. Tho Republicans aro
r'ght and their courso will bo Indorsed
by tho Republican puty. It would bo
humiliating indeed for tho majority
now to back down and permit a mi
nority to rulo.
Tho present Hiblo is regarded as
sacred down to tho last period by many
good people, and the army of enthus
iasts whoso knowlodgo is not to bo com
pared with thoir zeal will rise up in
arms. The changes aro so many that
scarcely a verso in tliu Now Testament
remains unaltered. In many Instances,
however, the alterations concern punc
tuations and minor words. Of courso
any alteration will arouse criticism, but
1 think wo can hold our own, and wo
aro prepared 10 do ualtlo lor what wo
havo dono and sanctioned. "NYo havo
worked between two fires, the radicals
wanting for more sweeping changes
that wo should sanction, and tho other
party rolling thoir oves in horror when
a comma was transformed or a small
letter replaced by a capital. Dr.
Schauf in iV. Y. 1'ost.
Yes, tho masses, who aro only par

tho Sunday school of thoir infruicy to

seems to toach tho terriblo conso
quoncesof adding to or taking from
tho "word of God," and now for thorn
to learn "that scarcely a vorso in tho
Now Testamont remains unaltered,"
will bo a sad thing, ospco!nlly to tho
aged. It is truo that they aro in "tho
army of enthusiasts whoso knowlcdo
is not to bo compared with their zoal,"
but should they bo twitted for thoir
ignorance, for whilo they could not ac
quire tho knowlodgo to road tho old man

their hiblo wore spurious and what not,

years" boon Bitting und or tho "drop

Mahono said of the blackguard from
