STORY Of TI1K CANTATA.
The avents that occurred at tho close
of Belshatssr's brief reign In the year
588 B. C, ire as instructive and im
preesive an can be found in the whole
imiga of lli'de history. At this time
the Jews nad beou iu captivity seventy
years They were taken to Babylon by
Nebuohadntsaar, who was the father
of Nabenidas, who was tho father of
Babylon formed the capital of the
Babylonian empire. It origin wai so
remote that history OM not tix the
date. After the destruction of Nine
vo!i it became tho molt celebrate 1 city
of Assyria, and the residence of its
kings, It was located in a great plain
ui on such side of a branch of tho
Euphrates, which flawed through the
city from north to south, it was built
in the form of n square, measuring
about lifty-.ix miles in cicumference,
and contained 0,000,01)0 Inhabitant,
whoso homes were Mattered over thi
vast space like a collection of villaa
within general wall. Upon tho eie-t-ru
side of tho river stood the
largest royal palace, nearly seven miles
in circumference an l enclosed by three
lofty walls with prodigious to wore, Tho
strength and resources of this vast city
were of the highest order. Two walls,
an outer and inner, completely sur
rounded it, having a thiokoessof about
eighty-tire feet, aud the height of
over 1100 feet, outside of winch
was a wide and deep ditch lined with
brick and tilled with water. In the
walls wore n hundred Kates made of
silid brass, and of prodigious strength
and eiz Upon the walls were 20J
era tcb towers. At the points where tho
river entered and left the city wero
ponderous water gates, which were
closely guarded and kept closed at
CONFIDENT OF RESTORATION.
The Jewish captives had their own
local ru'ers, or governors their reli
gious chief and gavo music and song
to the feasts of their heathen'capton,
living in the midst of whom as a na
tion they were cured of their idolatry,
and brought nearer than over to the
true God. They believed in tho pres
ence and appearand of angels, and rs
the years of their captivity etrne .to a
ojo.se wero coufllent of restoration to
tbir native land.
At this time Cyrus, king of Persia,
had been for yetrs fcesiegiug Babylon
y?i'h no immediate prospect of success.
Nftbonides was king of li.ibyloti, but
with hi army, had left the city to tight
the Persians, placing his impetuous
and riotous son, Beishazzar, on the
throne, with N'ilocris. the queen
mother, as co-regent in his absence.
The tim for tho grtat annual festi
val in honor of the Babylonian deities
had fiome, and Uelshsmr had deter
mined to give a feast surpassing every
thing that had gone before, as if in
mockery of the UedeS and Persians,
Thorn camo as the ministers of a God
Whdm he would not serve." He
gathered "a thousand of bis lords."
and brought in his wives and concu
bines. "They drank toasts nf enthusi
astic patriotism, sang songs of bound
less loyalty, and shouted dettanos to
every foe. The high noon of the feast
came. All hearti were bounding, all
spirits joyous." The kin descended
from his thro::e, drank in the most
public manner, aifd then impiously
called for the holy vessels robbed from
the temple at .TernarfUm by his grand
father, Nebnohadnemr. This sacnl-ge
waa regarded as the worst of orimes;
bnt inflamed by wine the king would
not n restrained. Then, over ng linst.
tho seven-branched candlestick from
tho temple, appeared the lingers of a
mysterious hand that wrote etranao
words upon the wall which none could

The ravelrv was hnshed. "fne enp

of alarm are mingled with cries to
Baal, and the king loudly commands

.lames Ward. Patrick F. Godfrey, John
Lilly and John Custello, members of
the town council of Winton, and the

John E RamsbsrgtOf Atchison, Kin.,
delivered B loctnre on "Free Thought"
at Music hall lust evening. After the
lectors a Liberal league was formal.
Theobjeot of the orgadiiatioo la to s --
euro the measure of liberality and
freedom to all nun and to entirely di
vorce state and leligion.
The speaker was brought to this city
by Thomas C. Jones, of the West Side,
oneof th i leading liberals of this viciu
ity. Mr. Remsberg's lecture y.-as devoted
principally to wtiat is known as the
Christian Sabbath, which he holds to
be an unnecessary Institution, lie of
fered 100 to any one who would show
him a text iu the Rible, in either old or
now testament, which authorized the
observance of tue Sabbath,
Ho declared that Paul was ojpossd to
a Sabbath and that the early church
recognized no such day as ths Christian
Sabbath as it is known today.
WOIM IT WAS KSTAUUrtllkD.
It was not until the Fourth century
that the necessity of the Christian
Sabbath was discovered, the Speaker
said, and it was thereupon ordaiti'j.l by
the Emperor Cons'.aatio') that there
after every seventh day should oe ob
served. Mr. Reiusbrg Mid that Lu
ther, Calvin and noarly all of the early
reformers rij .'cted the Christian Sib
bath ai a divine institution. He de
Clared all Sunday I iws that have n
pnritanioal tendency should bo wiped
uff the statute uooki.
The Sunday lsws In this stata hi
held to be unususlly sviire. They are,
in his opinion, very unjust an 1 should
bo repealed at once. Sunday laws ho
does net think necessary. It they are
wiped out. Sunday will be ob irved
even more fully tuan it is mw, b;i . as
a day of rest and rational racreation.
Every nun should bo ailowd to ot
serve the day as he thinks best, pro
vided ho dotts not interfere iu any vjy
with his neighbor.
The case of California waj Instanced
as n state where there ure no Sunday
laws, bnt wnere people observe it of
their own volition si a day of rest.
