Interesting Controversy Over Infant Baptism The encounter between the.Rev. Lem Penrocl and Mr, John Slate at Grassy Creek. Ken., the other day. on-the subject ol' infant baptism, will, ^ve fear, cause a g'ood deal of unreasonable scan- clal. Finding: it impossible to get Slate to take a proper view of this important ordinance, he drew a revolver and shot. probably merely as a. warning 1 , at Slate's luff, the ball passing through, hig boot. Slate, instead of taking- this in a pi'oper -spirit, ''rushed at the minister," whose resources ac close quarters were not, however, exhausted for he produced a butcher knife and endeavored •to slash Slate's abdomen, but only reached his trousers. Friends then stopped the fray. This attempt on Slate's abdomen, we cannot excuse^ Slate's head being- the real seat of his error; -but in a fray it Is, of course, difficult to plant one's blows where 'they will do the most good. But we must not too hastily condemn the Rev. Penrod's methods, for infant •ba>pttsm is by no means the only doctrine erroneous views on which have been..corrected with the knife or the •bullet. There is hardly a single theological error which in times past has not been corrected by cuts, brluses, and burns. Pen rod is simply an a-nachron- ism, but we trust he will keep an eye •on Slate, and g-et ihim right somehow eventually.—Evening Post.
