The ersey Shore Republican contains a
long n :ount of the death of Dr. RIENNALD,
forlllEly of Williamsport. It appears from
t he sta enient that he was a respectable
Garda phisician, and resided in Liberty,
Tioe . unty, Pn. He was found dead in
a stnnl valley of the -Blockhouse Fork deck
on Su !ay, the Oult. He had left his resi
dence, 'a the Blockhouse, on the Morning
- ..
of the : dof December, with the intention
of risiti..g a pntient who resided on Little
Pine', c ; ek. The woods through. which he
had to :ravel.were infested by wild beasts
of pr r py and it is believed that a panther
must lt ve attacked him, as he was most
shockitigly mangled. His entire face, With
'the- dheek bones, were turn off' ; the bone of
the tin. er jaw. was unbroken, but stripped
of all c overing. The throat, and' part of
t h e r i g i ' side of the neck, were torn away,
and till he erring was stripped ()tithe col
l a r hen* down to the bone of the right arm,
which tas at the shoulder laid bare. Tour
or fibe ibs were torn out, of his right side,
and nit nuance made through his body, in
the-di • don or region of the heart. His

To the ditors of the Ageocate :
I hay no wish to enter into the disc*
sion oft e controversy that is now exciting
our co munity ; but as-my opinions and
feeliags , re against the punishment by death,
offer f s the consideration of Biblical critics,
the full wing..; suggestions, with a full and.
fixed' de ermination of listening calmly and
pntieuti,_ to any remarks in reply ; but with
out SU cting myself to the necessity of yin
(heating my own views by further investiga
tion, or ; esearch.
To all the' arguments against taking life
for criut , it is replied: we have no option !
it is the ivine law! it is our duty, not Ito
speculat,, but to obey ! Let it be proved
that a andate lies issued and that is an
end of t; e controversy. This I understand
to be Jo Jessup's view. Now We hare only
to reme.iber, in such a case, that the Bible
is one tag and our notions telt another;
and as ire divisions of Christendom, and
even of 1 he Jews themselves, differ essential
ly, mid II claim to be right, and each sect
1, fund; d with cast research mid ability.—

in this form instead of the imperitive, and
sometimes stands for it; but this is far from
from beingialways the case; and 'whether

one thatndeth me shall slay me," depends
on the s u bject matter the contest. Of course
we cann y t tell, whether the sentence is a

nunciati n. The phrase translated "by
man," i the Hebrew "h' edam," the word
" edam, ' preceded by the letter " beth,"
which, eons also, in, among, with, &c. A
very,dis biguished Hebrew scholar says the
preposit on "by" is properly represented by
the lett ' 4 ' mem ;" and if he is correct, it is
very do btful whether the blood to be shed,
is to be shed by man. John Calvin says,
the ren ering of" b' edam" " by man," is
"a for ed construction," arising from the
difficult es; 1 suppose he weans, in which
the sub ' ct is involved.
- The Septuagint,. Greek version, which
was ma 1 elabout three centuries before the
coming of IChrist, and, of, course, only em
braced he Old Testament, approaches ra
ther. ne, rer in a literal translation to our
commo, version, than the one I have quoted
from tlit Hebrew ; and it is not at atrial
probable that from this same source our
translation of this verse was obtained. It
would 'Mad literally, "He sheddeth (that is.
' he who sheds') the blood' of man for the
blood his will be shed." The Samaritan
copy ofttlie sante translation has it thus—
"for th.p man his.blood will be shed." The
presentiVuhr e' ate was published fi rst in 1590,
after Pepe Sextus V. had collected the most
ancieratlMSS. and best printed copies; had
surinnoped a conclave of cardinals, nod in
vited an assembly of all the learned ince
throughout christendom to their,assistance,
had pre,'sided over the whole hiniself. He
deciareil it to be the only correct translation,
and pit lisped it, with as severe n denunci
ation o t
all who,questioned it, as Judge Jes
sup !lei issued now, against those who differ
from On ; and-yet, only two years after his
death, pletnent VIII. published another,.
with in(re than two thousancrvariations, and
pronounced it correct; with the same anath
emas .lid the same sanctions. A literal
iranslaf on of the Latin Vulgate, in the case
noir' be ore us, is "Whoever sheds human •
blood, is blood wi ll be shed," making no
allusioqi“ to any agent. Martini's Italian
version4has it the same, There are some
eight o# nine different versions of this Bible
that cciijicide with his; one.of Michael-Ser
vetus, published in 1.542. I know that the
Vidgat I is not considered the best authority
by ,PrO l stout Divines,but asthe translations
of itJ trite all made without any reference to
this%qutistion ; no apparent motive existed
to depart from the truth, and surely in this
colour* and under our institutions, Catho
lics 'have as good a right to be heard as any
other sict—indeed many of them are as
zealouti for the death penalty as Judge Jes
' sup liilself. In DiOdatis' Italian version,
the verse we are discussing is ” the blood of
him wltn sheds the - blood of man, WILL be
shed oilman." The French Bible in corn

the mahner of 'the first lite-taking,-and not
to the who is to punislifor it: The
