REMARKABLE BALLOON ASCENSION.
—The 'York Daily says : On Monday
morning we made brief mention that a
balloon was seen in the vicinity of York
on Sunday morning. The, next that , was,
learned in reference to the balloon , was
that it bad been seen at-Elkton, - Md the
same morning. It was.claimed' by persons
who saw the balloon near York,that they
could see the word 'Buffalo' painted in
large letters upon it.
It appears by the Buffalo (N.Y.) Daily
Courier, on Monday, that it was the bal
loon 'Buffalo' which started from that city
on Saturday evening 4th inst. under the
direction of Prof. King.
'At fifteen minutes past five the infla
tion was' complete. The basket was well
supplied with provisions, blankets and'
overcoats. The gentlemen accompanying
Prof. King were Mr. Luther I. Holden, of
the Boston Journal, Mr. W. T. Chester,
and Mr. James Al*. At four minutes
past six the balloon started on her voyage,
with the wind, according to Observer
Mitchell's calculation, moving at the rate
of eight milesan hour.'
A correspondent of the Courier,writing
from Salem, New Jersey,on.the sth,where
the balloon had safely arrived,gives some
interesting particulars of the voyage. He
`After-leaving Buffalo and passing sev
eral villages, the balloon rose to a height
of 3,000 feet, and soon after rose to a
greater altitude, and for a long time the
earth was obscured. After traveling un
til 'midnight a range of lofty mountains
began to appear, which Prot. King decid
ed to be the Allegheny range. In the.

rather exciting landing among a - lot of
scrub oaks about ten miles beyond this
point. The balloon must have traveled
about four hundred miles in thirteen
hours, and the 'voyage is one of the long

in this view must be easily duped if Dr.
G. could be so contradictory and that on
one of the vital doctrines taught in "H's."
cathechism, if he studies it. Is it at all
presumable, that such palpable contra
dictions could have place, either in his
teaching orbis writing. To say so in your
paper, or to say it in any paper, is sim
ply an insult to the intelligence of your
readers, as well as an insult to the intel
ligence of the. readers, of other papers.—
The attempt is so barefaced that no one
need wonder as "H." says in his first re
mark, "that Dr. G. will • pass this contra
diction by in dignified silence." So would
'any other sensible; misquoted man.
Now, Mr. Editor, to give you and your
readers a specimen of quotations, pertain
ing to this very subject, take the following
front the offensive Tract No. 3, as found
in the Reformed Church Messenger for Ju
ly 8. "Do not tell them (baptized chil
dren) that they must repent of sin and o
bey God, in order that God may love
them." So it is quoted in the lute "re
ply" to Dr. G's. Tract. Were such real
ly the teaching of the Tract, the utterance
would indeed be dubious, but the reader
must be told that there is no such sen;
fence in the tract. These words are in it;
but they occur as apart, and as the nega
tive ;art of the sentence, and imply the
positive sequel which follows, and must
follow, to complete the sense. The wri
ter of the g•ReplY" referred to, put a peri
od (.) after the words loVe them. At that
point, however, there is no period in the
Tract, but a semi-colon (:). By changing
the punctuation, and by putting the quo
tel words in italics, and iu a paragraphs
by themselves, the writer makes the im
pression upon the reader, that be has be
fore him a hill sentence front the Tract,
instead of only the negative portion of a
sentence. The whole sentence runs thus :
"Do not tell them (baptized
that they must repent of sin and obey
God, in order that God may love them ;
but tell them that God has loved them in
Christ, and loves them now, though they are
sinners; therefore they ought to be truly sor
ry for sin, hate all evil and obey God and
lova Him as their kind Heavenly Father."
We have put in italics that positive part
of the sentence, which is omitted by the
writer of the "Reply." And again, "the
baptized child needs no repentance in
order to become the child of God." This
isthe negative sicleovith the positive reads
—'The baptized" child needs no. repent
ance in order to become the child of ; God.
As many as have been baptized into
Christ, have put on Christ. The child
needs repentance in order to live in Christ,
and grow in Rita unto a perfect man."—
Outrageous garbling unworthy of a pro
fessor of the Lord Jesus.
Now, who cannot see that -xith such
a spirit of demolition, and this scandal
way of making quotations, that you can
make contradictions of everything—that
the Bible itself, in such hands becomes a
nose of wax,' to be fashioned into any
shape the expert manipulator may desire.
And this is the spirit, and the mode of
this ecclesiastical warfare which hos been
waged for years in the Reformed Church.
Have not. the people—has not the Chinch
