A HIN(T OR Two.
To all to whom it may concern.*
There are some subjects. Mr. Editor, to
which the attention of Christians, and chris
tian churches, cannot be too frequently di
-rected. If I mistake not, such is the nature
of the one which stands at the head of this
- article. On this, they need " line upon
line, and precept upon precept."
The remarks I nropose to make will be
very plain, and intended to expose some
of the evils connected with ii.
1. It is an evil but pooripi to pay the
preacher. I have nothing to say to those
churches that compensate, in no way, the
man of God for his labors of love. I leave
them until the day of final reckoning, when
they must answer for glaring neglect of
duty. But for a church to admit their duty
in this particular, and to dole out with a
sparing, if not with a grudging hand,
scarcely enough to buy their ministers corn,
is no small evil. And this too is done by
churches that are able to pay thrice as much
as they now do to the support of the minis
try. Other labours are not put off with
half pay. But the minister's services are
so much less important than any one else.
that he must not grumble if he gets but
half a loaf. I repeat it, this is an evil un
der the sun. Were this ah occasional thing,
it might be better tolerated. But it is too
general-the instances of those who are
well supported by their churches, forming
only exceptiobs. In this the value which
is set upon the gospel by those who profess
to value it.above every thing? Don't these
people love money more than the gospel?
Is charity outraged to answer YES ?
2. Another evil is. to promise a minister
a certain amount, and pay him only a part
of it. This, too, is not so rare a case. If
it were, it would be better both for church
and preacher-the former would not be
guilty of breaking a promise; the latter
would not be disappointed in meeting his
reasonable expectations, and he would be
spared the pain 'f thinking at least, that
his people are not to be relied on. But it
is a very common case, that churches pro
mise one thing, and come shortof it. Who
will gain-say this? I venture the assertion,
that nine-tenths of our preachers do not
get, any two years in succession, all that
their churiches promise to pay. There is
many a subscription unpaid. Now, this is
a sore evil. Ministers can't live on unpaid
subscriptions. (Pity they could't.)' Be
sides this, promises are serious things; and
they should no more be violated when
made by churches, than when made by in
dividuals. An individual making a 'pro
mise to pay money, is held accountable to
his church if he fails, wilfully to comply.
And yet, the church may fail to fulfil a
similar promise made to its minister, and
nothing must be said about it ! It is an evil
not to be winked at, because it is commit
ted in high places. Nor will it do for such
ciommunion, hfave not' palt
ubscription. The minister always con
tracts with the church, and not with indi
viduals, whether in the church, or out of
t, so that, in all justice, the church is bound
ror all deficiettcies. And any church put
ing off its minister with such a plea, de
erves to be left unsupplied.
3. Another evil is, that what a minister
receives in the way of compensation is re
eited in such a manner, as is little calculat
d to benefit him. It is received by piece
meals. a little to-day, and a little to-mor
row. In many instances, the whole amount
so comparatively little, but the manner in
which it is received, renders it still less in
value. Why should not ministers be paid
quarterly, or semi-annually, as well as lit
rary and theological professgs, &c.? At
any rate, where this cannot be done, would
it not be more to the credit of the church
to pay him in full at the eno of the year ?
This would not only look more business
like, but it would enable him to lay out his
pay, however small, to better a-lvantage.
Won't churches correct this evil ? If they
are determined not to raise the wages of
their ministers, won't they try and pay
them all at once !
4. The practice of collecting, and paying
he minister on Sunday, is another evil.
But fewv chturches but what do this. To
ards the end, or at the beginning of the
year, you will see the deacon, or some otne
else, with subscription in hand, butsily col
lecing the amnount su'oscribed; and the
frst thing, after leaving the pulpit, the
preacher is met by thtis collection with a
roll of money,'(sometimes very small,)
which is counted out with great care, be
fore " many wittnesses." Now, all this sort
of busitness, on the Lord's day, has to say
the least. the appearance of evil. some other
day, should be taken to attend to this butsi
ness, o- re this done, more, in my opinion,
would be collected thtan now is. Th~le
church, where the deacons are negligent,
should appoint sonme otte to attend to it.
And now, Mr. Editor, I have said all that
I intend to say, at present, on this subject.
You may hear from me again on it,, provi
ded, (I like provisions) you think this arti
cle will do any goodl.

TIlE WAR-WVOMAN'S CREEK.
In Georgia and North Carolina, there is
hardly a river, creek, or stream, that has
nut connected with it somne old Indian tra
diton. The title of the present sketch is
taken fromi one of these-I believe otno of
the principal tributaries of th6 Natahtalee
river~, in the Cherokee nation, North Car
olina. The story, as told by the few In
dians remaining since the removal in the
fall of 1838, runs thus:
Many years ago, in the first settlement
of the country, a wandlering party of their
tribe attacked the house of a squatter some
where upon their borders, during his ab
sence, and massacred all his children, and
left his wife covered wvith t he tmangled bo
dies ,of her butchered offspring, scalped
like them, and apparently dead. Sho was
nut, however, wounded so badly as they
had supposed; and no sooner did she hear
the sondn of their retreating footst eps, th an
disengagitig herself from the heap of slain,
haggard, pale, and drenched with her own
and the blood of her children, she peered
steadily from the door, and finding her ene
mies no longer in sight, hastily extinguish
ed the fire, which, before leaving, they had
applied to the logs of which it wab com
posed. Wiping from her eyes the ivarm
blood which was still reeking from her
scalpless head, she directed her agonized
gaze to the bleeding and disfigured forms
of those who, scarce an hour before, had
been playing at the door, -and gladdening
her maternal heart with their merry laugh
ter; and as she felt, in the full sense of
desolation, the last ray of hope die within
her bosom, there stole over her ghastly
face an expression as savage as was ever
worn by the ruthless slayers of her inno
cent babes. Her eye gleamed with the
wild fury of the tigress robbed of its young,
as closing her cabin carefully behind her,
with a countenance animated by some
desperate purpose, she siarted off in the
sane path by which the mudrderers had de
parted. Heedless of her wounds and
wasting blood, and lost to all sense of hun
ger and fatigue in the one absorbing and
fell-purpose which actuated her, she paus
ed not upon the trail of her foes, until at
night, she came up with them encamped
at the side of the creek, which is indebted
to her for its present name.
Emerging frotn the gloom of the sur
rounding darkness, on her hands and knees,

blaze of which, as it flickered upwards.
iscovered to her the prostrate forms of
.he Indians, five in number, who, over
iome by an unusually fatiguing day's tra
rel, were wrapped in deep sleep, with their
inly weapons, their tomahawks, in their
3elts. Her own stealthily advancing figure,
is the uncertain light of - e burning pine

iven moro striking than the swarthy faces
vhich she glared upon. Assuring herself
hat they were fast asleep, she gently re
noved their tomahawks, and dropped all
ut one into the stream. With this re
naining weapon in her hand, and cool re
olution in her heart, shei bent over the
earest enemy, and liftid thb instrumrit,

d victim, however, was aroused to a con

truggles of his companions. He sprang
o his feet, and felt fur his weapon. It
vas not there; and one glance explaining
very thing, he evadted the blow aimed at
im by the brave and revetigeful mother,

vith it succeeded partially in warding off
