authors and abettors of the original charge
of plagiarism, the Recount against them on
the score of the grossest falsehood and dis
honesty; since the charge, as it Was delibe•
rately , made and deliberately reiterated, if
false, necessarily involves the guilt of both
falsehood and dishonesty, in their most of
fensive forms. The real point of agreement
between Dr. 'Chalmers and Dr. Breckin.
ridge, however, is their .common and hide
pendent rejection of the arbitrary method of
'presenting the , knotoledge of God and sal
'yawn which Dr. Park reviles Dr. Breokin
ridge as incompetent, and ridicules him as
presnenptdoue for rejecting; while he him•
self suggests (p. 767,) new method, not
only perfectly arbitrary, but wholly incapa
ble of either practical or scientific use
Por he says the sources of the knowledge
Id" God and the knowledge itself must be
treated first; then the work of creation, and
therein of man, his fail, his relations to
God, both before and after ; and then the
mediator; and finally " the sum and result."
But to say nothing of the total distinction
between the two topics united in his first
division, to wit: between knowledge in
itself and the mimes of it, in reality that
first topic of his first division cannot even
be dimmed without assuming the knowl
edge which is to be obtained by disco
sing every topic , involved in both the
second and third divisions. We coniniend
`to Dr. Park's attention the Divine method
the'Sfilii" of atiVitig sit gears
, presented in the great logical, systematic,
and truVepleitifio statement of it given in
'Paul's Epistle to the Romans, and to put to
hie own conseienoe the question . whether the
apdstle, in - beginning with man, his ruined,
guilty. and helpless conditiOn, and his re
covery through a Mediator, has pursued the
method *filch the reyiesrer recommends, or
that which he his assailed with all his pow
ers of denutioittion, and wit, and ridicule P
Let him analyze that epiatle - s.ad'he rally at
least obtain sufficient insight of this great
subject to comprehend that there is really
both sense and order in the method - idiipted
by the great 'aptistle, and closely followed by
Dr. treckinridge. We might perhaps, it
be would heed us, do him service by urging
that be also look into his thin religious ea•
perienee l and rest satisfied if be find there
any Divine operation follaivieg the 'order of
the Divine revelation of eternal life.
A single word more as to the "method
itself, is all that pried' be 'here added. Dr.
Park's lucubration about the enter of the
four hooks which;Make up vOlumeene,,mity
be found on pp. 767, 768, of the ReView.
And if be had any notion except merely to
display his idle conceits in the most' offen.
sive manner, it seems to have been the no.
Lion that we cannot know any thing, unless
we know, not only hoiv we came to liiow
it, but also all the other possible ways of
knowing it. That is, a man can neither
know that he is a sinner, nor be taught any
way of salvation, nnlese he is first taught all
the mysteries of all the peteible ways of
knowing all that can be knewn of God.
Such a criticism might gritify. Dr. Park's
spite for an bilitant,und, as :he has covered'
its latent sense, might puzzle some of those
who walk by hie orioles; but to the sober
thinkers . it opens up the usual method by
which the way of life is perverted in his'
Undo, and helps to explain why it is that,
thougn he professes to be ever, learning, he
never comes to the'inowledge of the trash.
To the ilabietinkoitis or ticiiin of the

the Review, the charge of plagiarism.
That the writer who could evince eo much
presumption or eo little acquaintance with
the theology of the Church, as to bring for
ward and pompously announce in this day,
the ancient and universally recognized dis
tinction between " the theology of the in
tellect and the theology of the affeotione,"
as a grand discovery in theologioal science,
should hazard a charge of plagiaiism on
any subject connected with that soience,
seems to be rather remarkable. For surely
it has always been known and idMitted that
there is a faith with works and - i faith with-
out works. But in the beginning, middle,
and end of his attempt to sustiin this 'mien
nation, he is but following the footetepf of
his " illustrious predeeeasor," the 4 g North
Carolina Pastor,' , from whom be plagierikee
the entire warp and woof of his criticism
without acknowledgment, and gives not the
slightest intimation moreover that the same
predecessor has been repeatedly eoiiiieted
of the very Charge which he hi etidoirroted
to fasten upon the first voltime of 'Dr. Bieck

up and dispose of the charge itself.
Dr. Park has lately attempted an essay

traotates on the Atoneuient, in Which, not to

point of Vie* to db jiistiai the'great
thanes 'which are associated with: that sub

which has been already partially exposed,
may suggest the question whether such fel-.
efication is not in a moral point ofview,
more dishonorable than plagiarism itself!
We think that the diatinction is the same
substantially, as that which, is-admitted to

Dr. Park's method of maintaining the
charge itself of plagiarism, would be simply
ludicrous, were it not for the melancholy
proof which it furnishes of the blinding
effects of prejudice upon the mind which
yields itself to its 'promptings When the
denim to accomplish a sinister aim at all,
and without regard to means 'which May he
necessary to secure it, takes possession of
the mind, little regard is had to anything
else. Agamemnon waged a ferocious war
against Troy, because Paris hadeirried shay
the wife of Menelaus; and yet, while wag
ing, that very war, took away by force the
black-eyed damsel of his felloWseldier, Achil
les. So with Dr. Park. He accuses Dr.
Breekinridge of plagiarism, and is hiniself
utterly a prey to his own plebes, as to
be guilty of plagiarism, for the aim and sub
stance of the proof which lie alleges in
support of the charge. He plagiarizes his
criticism from " the North Carolina Pastor,"
and ietrvidtiees it se his tiara, While he is
charging Dr. Breekinridge With plagiarizing
fi•Oin Stapfer. But even this, bad as it is,
is not the most humiliating feature•of this
part of his performantre. Dr.. Breckinridge
has fully and satiefactorily vitidicate.d him
self against this charge, and proved it to be
Use' and malicious, and yet Dr. Park takes
we 'rake of that Vindication. .Be
fore he`assumed to reiterate the•charge, it is
perfectly obvious that, on the
principles of moral`integrity; he 'should have
brought forward at least the substance of
that vindication, and have ehown it to be
unetitistactOry. But he his neither adernpt
ed this nor anything like it. He, to carry
his sinister aim, reiterates the - accusation le •
though it were an undeniable and admitted
fact, and endeavors to leave upon the minds
of his readers, the impression that snob is

Now it is perfectly obvious, on a tnoment's
reflection, that a charfie oi,plegiatism can
not, without 'gross injustice and diehoiesty,
be made against an • anther,' unless on the
ground that, while claiming originality for
the contents of his wcirk, or 'for hia method

distinctly disavows laying any claim .whatever
in respect to the material of hie work; 'and
frankly declares that that material had been
larnished to hie hand by the writers who
had preceded him. And now Dr. Park and
his abettors, with the dishonorable design of
prejudicing the public against his labors,
and after many months of painful, research
and investigation ' boast that they have dis
covered one of those many sonnies to which
to be indebted; and, , in their - anxiety to so.

true state of the ease; - and such 'is the
shameless course so unblushingly adopted by
Dr. Park, and the " nine editors of the

Carolina Pastor," to effect object 'upon

blushing for human nature.

than the unutterable meanness of this whole,

Another feature' in the programme, and in
no way behind this in dishonest artifice, is
the effort made by Prof. Park and his abet
tors to convey the impression that Dr.
Breckinridge is a wholesale - plag;ariat. NOW
Dr. B.'s two volumes contain twelve hund
red and twenty-one pages, while all the.
alleged plagiarisms, which dishonesty and

believe, always stated. 2. Dr. Park is re

perfectly aware that the article would, under
the circumstances, be attributed to his au

DR. R. A. WILSON'S PILLS.
Having retired from the practise of medicine, I may be
permitted to say that it has fallen to the lot of but few
patrons to have enjoyed so liberal or large a share of
obstetrical practice as my own bee been for the last thirty
or forty years.
of that long period of active 11115, and the
feet of my boring been 'twice, since ltffift, associated with
Dr. L.A. Wilson, in the practice of medicine, (in both a
period of live years,) enables me to judge fully of the merits
of his pills.
Do convenient, so efficient, 'and yet so mil, did I esteem
these pile , that for the bolt Ave years In practice, for the
cure of chronic Moment of whatever name, and those of
Whales in particular, I have need more of them than all
other medicines. Like every other medicine, these must
Neil in some instances, but in my bands there baa been less
disappointment end more satisilection in the administration
of this one remedy than of all others—its good effects
sometimes quite astonishing me.
If my patient required a safe aperient medicine, either
bakes or alter parturition, the Wilson's Pills were just the
thing I wanted.
If a dyspeptic acid condition of the stomach, combined
with costiveness, or inactivity of the liver, constituted the
disease of my patient, the pills were just the thing I
If I treated a case requiring an emmenagegue, the Wil
son's Pills were jun the thing I wanted.
If palpitation, hesdache flushed countenance, or other
difficulties indicating a dlitnrbanoe of the circulatory awl
eeeretory systems, annoyed my patient at the turn of life,
the Wilson'. Pills were Jest the thing I wanted.
Thus, without respect to the name &disease mighthappeo
to wear at the time I have bad It under treatment, particu
lar indications or symptoms arising were always most
promptly and meet happily met by the Wilson's Ms.
That so great a number of diseases, and sometimes
apparently opposite ones, in which I have need those pills,
should be cured more readily by them than by any other
remedy, may at first beets strains, and contradictory, but
Why it is so, Is as clear to my mind as that a greet many
persons should become thirsty from tee many different
muses, and yet all require that common and greatest of all
blessings, water, to quench their thirst.
is conclusion, it is due the reputation of medicine and
the public to say, decidedly and unconditionally, that the
Wilson's Pills are the only combination I haveyever met
with in my long course of practice that really Owen 'any
thing curative or specific' for sick-headache.
