The Earl of Shark-soury, K. (i., ou Sci
ence and Religion.
A few years ago the attacks mado
upou Koligiou by some meu of science
led to the foundation of a Society to
investigate all Philosophical or Scien
tific questions, more especially those
said to militate against the Truths of
Revelation, and to publish the results
to its members in a quarterly journal ;
this Society, which was called the
Victoria Institute, or Philosophical
Society of Great Britain, Las now a
house at 7, Adelyhi Terrace, London,
and boasts of 600 members, each fay
ing an annual subscription, amongst
whom are many leading men of sci
ence. The Archbishop of Canterbury,
and several English, Colonial and
American prelates have also joiued
it. Having beeu founded under Lord
tobaftsbury's auspices, his Lordship
takes much interest in its progress,
which Ue recently described as fol
lows: "I was present at the very
birth of this Society, when an address
was delivered in a small dark roojB.
I had no conception at that time'of
the work which the Society would do,
and of the position which it would
hold, not only at home, but also as it
is now beginning to do, in America
we Can (Do.
and our Colonies. I had no expecta
tion whatever of seeing the Society
assume such magnificent proportions
and from the bottom of my heart I
thank Almighty God that he has so
prospered our efforts (cheers). The
object with which this Society was
formed was, not merely to beat down
the views of others, not to be antag
onistic to the progress of Science, but
to do all that we could do for the de
velopment of Truth, and, if I may
use the phrase, to give Religion 'fair
play'. This Society was not founded
to establish either one opinion or
another. It was not started for the
purpose of setting up the Bible
against Science. The object of the
Society was, that Science should have
fair play, and that Truth should be
told on all sides, and that we might
get rid of the despotism of certain
scientific men (hear, hear). Becanse
it is perfectly well known that men of
science with all their sublime and
mighty notions, are as despotic as the
weakest of the human race, and they
are exercising their despotic sway to a
remarkable extent over a very large
number of rising young men, who are
either fascinated by what they have
read and discovered, or are crushed by
the authority of a few great names.
It was in order, as I have said, that
Science should have fair play that this
Institute was established, and the
blessing of God has so rested upon it,
that it has at last taken a hold in
German Feast Bread1.
When fresh German or compressed
yeast can be obtained, a very nico light
bread can be made and baked in about
three hours1 time. For two large loavvs
of bread uso threo pounds of flour, ono
quart of lukewarm water, ono table
epoonful of salt and two ounces of
yeast; dissolve the yeast in the water;
add to It enough of the flour to make a
baiter thick enough to hold the drops
from the stirring-spoon when they are
shaken from its surface, and set this
batter or sponge near the stove to rise;
it must bo placed where the hand can
