For tht Brlltvus Gaisttt.
M. EoiToa:
Dtar Sr. Your, remarks In
the last Gazette, on tho Rev. M. Chiving
ton, on account of his allusion to a certain
"preacher in Bellerue," are considered
by many as severe and inappropriate and
to considered by men making no preten
tion to piety. I can only account for their
severity, in the desire on your part, to
vindicate the character of an absent friend;
a desire certainly praise-worihey, and
the vindication no less so, provided it be
done with a proper spirit. . - . f :. "
s to the quotation from the " certain
minister'' it certainly was correct, in sub
stance, if not in words. The application
of that quotation to the. Rev. Mr. Goss,
was also correct,' as I heard the remarks
from his own lips. Hut why an apology,
for the expresMon was necessary to vindi
cate the standing of Mr. Goss, 1 do not
understand, as , with others, was under
the impression that Mr. Goss rather glo
ried in the independence of his opinions,
as well as in tha right to express those
opinions untrammeled. A right, cer
tainly, which no one will deny him.
He admitted to the writer of this
1 , am
cle tbat our views would not ditler in re
gard to the character of God, but would
likely differ in regard to the character of
Jesus Christ, and they certainly do differ
wUtly, NWhat his views of Christ are,
he candidly told us in his "farewell dis
course." Among many remarks, I will
mention but one, vis tl "That God , was
not in Jesus Christ till his bsptism ; if so,
the inference is plain, that until his bap
tism he was only a man only a creature.
1 know of 116 body of Evangelical Chris
tians that entertain such an idea concern
ir.g our Savior. ,' "
.' I believe Mr. Goss is sincere in the
entertaiuineut of his views, tho they dif
from the large body of Evangelical Chris
tians. I doubt not, also, Mr. Goss sin
cerity in thinking tbat he gets those views
frm the Bible. ..This he tells us is his
guide ; but certainly the same liberty must
be allowed to others that is accorded to
him! the liberty also to oiirlvIora
over, Mr. Goss came here as a Methodist
minister, and Mr- Chivington is the Pre
siding Elder of that denominatiop iu'this
district and he certainly has the right
to warn his people against the entertain
ing" of erroneous sentiments, being ac
couutable to the proper tribunal for his
method of doing it. Besides this, I did not
understand Mr. Chivington as using the
expression quoted in the Gazette, bout
being a "worse sinner than any present
if he did use it, it escaped my notice.
Ho said iu substance, and nearly, or alto
gether in words, that the "preaching of
such sentiments was daubing with untem
pered mortar, end the following of such
would lead both "him and them to a place
from which they would not return."
3 1 have not a word to say agaiutl Mr.
Goss as a man;' I admired his self-denial.
His object teemed to ba to do good, and
should he again make his residence
among us, I presume his course will be
the same, trying to reform . man by the
imlomitalU power of the human wilL"
But as to his theological opinions, I must
confess, and it is vrilh torrow, that I could
see no hope for the sinner . in the Gospel,
as he preached ' it. The only hope for
our lost werld being iu the Atonement
and Righteousness of Jesua Christ, ap
plied to the sinner by the Holy Spirit.
I admit, Mr. Editor, that the country
newspaper is not the place to discuss such
matters, and I should not have said thus
much, only for the fact that in your re
marks on Mr. Chivington, there seemed
to be a blow, (tho 1 hope not intended,)
at Christianity itself. Our little town
will not be honored by holding up to rid i
cule, Christian ministers, or "Missions'
as "Stock jobbing Companies."
Among the ministry there may be
those who are actuated by mercenary mo-
lives; strange if it were not so, when,
among the followers of Christ there was
a Judas; yet, as a class, minister wil!
not sutler when compared wun loose in
other professions. Such was the express
ed opinion of that great Statesman, Dan
iel Webster. Jlis language was, on
certain occasion, iu substance, "There
not in our country a more laborious and
self-denyiog ciasi of men, and a class to
whom we are as much indebted as the
clergy of the various Evangelical denora
inations in the United States.
The day is past when Christian insti
tutions and the Christian ministry can be
cried dowu. or sneered at with impunity
There is a paper in our Territory, (I will
not name it.) that has secured for itseif
an uoevialle reputation, for its abuse of
honest men, and sacred things. The
"Gazette," I hope, will never follow
its footsteps.' The above remarks, Mr.
1 Editor, ar? penne? with the kindest fl
ings lowarJs yourself, as welf Si to the
parties concerned, but with feelings no
less kind to our little community.
Youra respectfully,
It is with pleasure that we give room
for tht preceding communication, a I tho
from an honest conviction of what we
consider justice and right, we must differ,
but in so doing, we trust that we shall Ve
the last to deny the same privilege to
We did not defend Mr. Goes wholly on
the ground of friendship; but because we
considered it an Act of downright coward
ict ami di honomble to any man, much
less in Mr. Chivington, a professed min
ister1 of the gospel, in taking advantage of
Mr. Goss absence, to accuse him in 'al
most unqualified language, as we under
stood it, o preaching doct ines that Would
send him and his hearers to au endless
belli. , . . , i
Mr. Chivington was well aware what
Mr. Goss was preaching last summer,
when he was here attending the Quarter
ly Meeting, and if it was an imperative
duty to warn Mr. G.'s hearers of the er
roneous doctrines that he alleges that
Mr. G. was preaching, why did he not do
it at that time, in the presence of their
minister I " Aye, that's the rub." Why
did he not speak to Mr. Goss in private,
about what he was preaching ? instead of
telling other preachers in the conference
that Goss, way down in Bollevue, is not
exactly sound, he preaches infidelity!
We repeat, because he did not dart to do
it ; he was fearful that he could not sus
tain tho charge, and like a shrewd mam
kept silent. ' . 1 . ..
It was this simple act alone, that " stir
red us to mutiny;" and in no case will we
keep silent while the strong attempt to op
press the weak ; but if Mr. G. had been
present when those charges were made,
Mr. Chivington would have been spared
by us, as we should, under those circum
stances, considered him an honorable man-
The quotation that we made from Mr
C.'s remarks, was read to several, before
they were published, that agree with him
on the subject in question, who heard it ut
tered, and allowed it to be correct in sub
stance. We endeavored to give a correct
quotation, but if wo did not,,, it certainly
was not intentional. ;. ; ,
We make no man's religious creed our
own, farther than we can conscientiously
adopt it, and wo will not defend Mr. Goss'
or any other clergyman's theological doc
trines, unless wo consider them to be true
and of vital Importance to the human race.
We did not take especial pains to ascer
tain Mr. G.'s theological views; but sup
posed him to be a Methodist,. as he was a
member of that church, in good and reg
ular standing ; but we rfii know that he
prea.hed many practical truths, with'
which we had sympathy. It is more im
portant to us to know how men live rather
than what they lelievt. .. .
As soon as a man leaves private life
and assumes the office of teacher, he be-
co nes a public man, and all public men
are public property, subject to criticism ;
and it is the duty of an honest and faithful
editor, whether of a country or city, secu-
ar or religious journal, to keep a faithful
watch of their doings.
In what respect we aimed a . blow at
christianty, we are not aware. - It is cer
tain that none was intended. We cannot
consider a mere minister, or the doctrine
of hell (ire and damnation, a part or par
cel of the christian religion. A minister
is but a man, and subject to all the frailties
of the human race, and the doctrine of
hell fire and damnation, is to us, a mon
strosity, fit only to govtr i those tbat are
but one remove from the brute. It is true,
however, that in the same proportion that
mankind depart from right, wdl they re
ceive punishment ; but that we, who are
not responsible for our existence, shall
atone for the errors of heart, eommitted
centuries ago, does not seem ratioual.
The btautiet of heaven instead of the
terrort of hell, should be the great motive
power to actuate mankind to do right He
that seeks heaven only because he ftart
hell, has yet to learn the first principles of
the christian religion.
The man that cheats and wrongs his fel
low man, six days of each week, and on
the seventh becomes exceedingly pious,
reads the Bible, and makes long prayers,
that he may be seen and heard by men,
strikes a deadlier blow at cbristiauity than
he who makes no profession, but treats his
fellow men like brothers. The most ac
ceptable service to God, is in doing good to
his creatures, whether it consits in cloth
ing the naked, feeding the hungry, improv
ing their physical and mental conditions,
or teaching them all the precepts of the
christian religion.
These remarks are made in spirit
kindness toward the author of the above,
whom we hold in hi?h esteem, knowing
that be has sacrificed many of the comforts
and pleasures of life, while laboring with
untiring xeal for the good of an unfortu
nate portion of the human family 1 bt be
es use we cannot agree with him in .theol
ogy, we hope he w ill not fail to accord (0 us
a liberality of spirit,' and an honesty of
purpose. Local Editor. ' V
A nssaantlc Itorr which may
' or may not be True.
. For some days past considerable ex
citement has been felt in some circles
in this ' cammunity in reference - to
an affair in humble life, tho par
ticulars of which we cannot permit to
pass unnoticed. So far as we have been
able to gather the facts of the case, they
appear to be as,followst " " r.t '
About thiee years ago George Fry, of
this vicinity," became enamored of beau
tiful gipsV girf, who in ; company with a
uuiuber of her people had encamped in a J
wood near, piute. Mr. rry s love
was fondly reciprocated by the fair gipsy,
and she consented is marry - him. . But
"true love never did run smooth," nnd so
it happened in this case.- The consent of
the father of. the lady could not be obtain
ed to her marriage with'a man not ac
customed to gentiiity !" However, "love
laughs at locksmiths." . When Mr. Fry
found that he "could not win the favor of
the old folks," he set about planning ways
and means toteal the object of his affec
tions. In this be was not unsuccessful.
One night when the hard-hearted old man
was wrapped in the arms of .Morpheus,
and all around was lonely and drear, Mr.
Fry approached 'the camp of the wander
ers, and was met by her for whom his
heart had long iu agony sighed. After
fondly embracing her, he solicited her to
accompany him, without delay to a village
a few, miles distant. Wi'hout hesitation
she comp'ied with his request, and on the
following day they were married. The
rage of the old g psy when he foui.d that
his daughter had "sloped" can better be
imagined than described. 'Nothing could
soothe his temper save the return of his
child. In vain he sought for her. Noth
ing could be heard from ' her. 'Finally
when he found that he himself could find
no traces of her, he offered a heavy re
ward to the person who ' would 'discover
her whereabouts, and in the presence of
several "kidnappers." he exhibited large
quantities of gold and silver, which in
duced theirt to make the effort, and - iu a
few evenings after, in a mot inhuman
manner", they accomplished their object.
In the absence of Mr. Fry they wrested
her away and delivered her over to the
bauds of a father unsusceptible of the di
vine feelings of love. Immediately the
entire group of gipsies fled from the
country. Rumor said that they had ' re
turned to England ' from Whence they
hailed. ' '" '' ' ' .- .'!'
Two years noiselessly, glided by, and
nothing was heaid from his absent wife,
a I tho' he long cherished the hope that the
wo'd escape from her "tyrannical parent"
and return to him whom the loved. Time,
however, gradually rusted Mr. Fry's love
for his gipsy wife. He felt that it was
"not good to be alone" so long, and at the
end of two years he again united li a des
tinies with another of Lve s fair daugh
ters. Suffice it to aay, with the latter he
experienced no visible difficulty. . Things
moved smilingly along Mr. Fry lived
happily with his wife and the rest of
mankind. But a In a! how short lived are
some connubial ' Combinations. .T Last
week '. Mr. Fry's 1 first ' . wife his
gipsy wife in Company with "George
Fry the Second," arrived in this place iu
search for hun. ' By the assistance of of
ficer Shade she was . successful in finding
him. Our pen would fail in the attempt
to describe the meeting of the heroes of
our story. It was overwhelmingly aflcc
ting, r Limited space forbids us from en
tering into details, at this time, of the ex
cruciating suffering Mrs. Fry has under
gone since her departure from this place.
The int' lligence oi her husband's second
marriage was a severe shock to her, but
she emphatically declares her exclusive
right to him. It appears, by the way
that Mr. Fry's aecoud wife was a "wid
ow," that her husband weut to California
some years ago, and, soon after his arri
ai there, it was rumored inat-ne was
murdered. A few weeks since . a letter
was received from him by her, we have
been informed, in which he states that be
will return in the net steamer, &c.
What the finale of this romance will bo
is beyond the power of human ken.
