UNIVERSAL REDEMPTION.
______
      At a weekly meeting of the Maryport Mutual Improvement Association, head on Thursday evening, a debate took place on the query, "Is redemption universal?'
     The affirmative was taken by Mr. F. KELLY, and Mr. J. WILSON the negative. An interesting discussion followed. The burden of evidence, of course, lay upon the affirmative leader,  and whatever may have been the individual views of the members upon universal redemption, there was a general impression that Mr. KELLY, in his impassioned and crushing reply, made out a very good case for the advanced views of his party.
     There was an exceptionally large attendance.
