CRCIULi B LETTER.
To TE Cutaci'Cs OF THE E DuEFIFL
Sendeth Christian Salutation.
TBELOVE: BRETKnES t
We gladly avail ourselves of the op
pottunity afforded by our annual meet
ing in Association, to address you upon
a subject which merits your serious at
tention. And we uflectionately entreat
you to bear with us if the light in which
it ispt esen:ed may bean unusual one
one condemnatory too of our practice
tnd opposed to our prejudice as a de
nomination of Christians;. especially if
it appear upon impartial examination
that we " write no new commandment
to you, but an old commandment, which
ye had from the beginning."
Much has been said and written of
late upon the uses, privileges, and du
its which the institution of the Sabbath
btings with it: and we have reason to
hope that no little practical good has
been accomplished by the agitation of
the subject. As it would far exceed the
limits we propose assigning to this letter,
to enter into an examination of all the
purposes designed by this institution,, we,
wil continb ourstlvesto' lit of the duty
and expediency 4f uneetingfogetheIr on

ship of God, at our respective Church
St. Paul exhotts the Hebrew breth
ren " not to forsake the assembling of
themselves together, as the manner of
some" was even in his day. That this
relates to the meeting together of Chris
tians, upon all convenient occasions, but
pa;ticularly upon the liist day of the
week, will appear from the following
1st. Time of tcctiuag. It might seem
unnecessary at this latb date to attempt
to establish this point. But we do it
because we fear there are too many who
-do not feel the full force of truth in
this particular instance. That this was
the uniform practice of the primitive
Christians will Le evident, if we read
the 7th v. and 20th ch. of Acts. No
tice with what an air of usualness the
Evangelist wr ites of' the disciples coming
together to break bread on " the fitst
'day of the wek." Again: their "stead
fast continuance in the Apostle's doc
.ine and fellowship, and in breaking
of bread antd in prayee s" mentioned Acts
2nd chapter 42d1 verse, serves to nmas k
amon'g other things their strict atdher

of the A postles in .,relation to this partic

christians taken inconnection with that

the testimony df'tho. christian writers,
beginning wth Jtustin',Martyr, (A.D,

time. Howv can the uniformity agd~lng

g...,t., desAign which shnold be had
in view in " assembling together" we
entertain no doubt that you are con
vinced that it is correctly expressed
above, viz : " to worship God."
3rd. The place of Meeting. We
are not always such strenuous advocates
of literal adherence to inferences deri
ved from the face of a'law as to believe
it a transgression of the law when the
spirit is carried -out. And here, alt
though we could demonstrate from the
very words of Paul that some partitu,
lar-place of worship is implied to which
resort should be had every Sabbath
that he-could not have addressed them
the hexhoriation without supposing they
had a common and usual place of wor
ship towhiich they are urged to resort ;
and that consequeritly it is binding on us
to assemble at what we term " our own
Churches," we satisfy ourselves with ex,
horting you "not to.forsake, &c." Carry
out the spirit of this exhortation as -re
gards the place. Let your consciences
guide you and keep the glory of God
constantly in view.
But we cannot forbear mentionir~g that
in the great majority of cases it is your
duty to assemble at your own places
of worship regularly ; and that the fol
lowing are the only cases which we im
agine can form exceptions. It may hap
pen that two Churches are situated so
closely to each other as to render con
venient the attendance of the members
of both upon either. Again: two Church
es may unite for the purpose of giving
adequate support to the ministry. But
in these cases the twg Churches are
virtually one, and attendance upon is
both the duty of the members of both.
We pause now to inquire what has
been actually proved? How much ? and
what bearing it has on the practice of
too many of our Churches I
Non it is generallyadmitted that Scrij
turn example carries with it as niuch
weight in deciding points of.doctrine as
precept. And it should be so: for, in
stances of a practice ~hich obtained
among the Churches in the time of the
Apostles iodsa tkoreiz dor..utebuke4
by them when duly informed of its exis
tence, are instances of a practice di
ivnely sanctioned, though the sanction
be itself suppressed. Let us fear then
brethren lest this method of reasoning
carry with it a sword that shall pierce the
very vitals of our practice in too many
cases. We shall see. We are author
ized to infer from what has been said
above, that it is the duty of a!l christians
to assemble together on the first day of
the week for the worship of God-that
the first day of the week is the time:
not the first or other Lord's day of the
month only. There is no mention ntade
of the month here. Now we ask, how
does this agree with our practice ? Do
we reckon by days and weeks, or by
weeks and months the -tines of our as
sembling ? For our answer to this impor
tant question, we appeal to your own
knowledge of the facts of the case.
Let us now attempt to answer briefly
three plausible objections which may
be urged against the practice of the duty
under consideration; in doing which we
hope to show tl.e expediency of its
Objection 1st. " We have not a suli
ciency of preachers."
Titis is no objection,.itvwill readily be
perceived to the measute 'proposed;~
however great an obstacle the scarcity
of preachers imity present, to what now
a-days we iinderstand. by "the wvorship
of God." "Does not th3 objector make

(gasi~ve a signification as'the wvords wvhich
compose it will allow. It is not restricted
to the performance of one act, but of as
nmany as the words " worship of God'
And whrit says thieiord of God upon
this' point ? St. Paul subjoins to the
prece quotad frequently in .this letter,
"but exhorting one another." [Jebrew~
10th chapte;, 25th, verse. What does
this indicate but ihat exhorting one

The public worship of God can be
conducted then without the presence of
a minister of the Gospel. -It must he
admitted that the ministry is the most
efficient me ans of spreading the word
but it is not th'e-only one. We fear
there is too great a disposition to overlook
the more silent branch of instrumentali
ties-such as private mnembersas well a!
areachers have to do with. WVe forbea:
mentioning other parts of divine wvor
ship; our only design being to show that
it does 'not consist, only in preaching,
May it not be that froni a noglect of the
duty of "assembling together" i-gularly
marny are "weak arnd sickly among m~
and 'many sidep," Suppose the primi
tive christians had. with folded .arms a
waited the arrivjfof,preacbers among
them, it is crediole that suchi mighty re
sunhsas we read of enntd have been a,
chieved. Not: theyTelt deeply interest
ed in the world's salvation. Each one
armed himself for the warfare, each one
moved on in its propar corse, and'col
lecting fresh aid 'as he advanced, like an
avalanche in its descent, they well nigh
swept away the cottages of sin. the pa
laces of corruption, and overwhelmed
the kingdom of Satan. Yes, the spir if
of God working through each and every
disciple did these great things. Then
let us no longer think we have done our
duty after attending upon the preaching
of the word every Lord's day ; even,
much less after attending upon it once
a month only: let us by assemnbling to
gether on the first day of every week,
endeavor to keep alive the flame- of
christian love, to call forth the "gifts"
among us, (be assured they are among
us) anI send their possessors out when
tried in Gospel form, with the Bible in
hand and the tove of souls at heart to
proclaim to others more destitute (he
glad tidings of salvation." Such a course
would, if pursued with christian spirit
and in gospel (order do all that we have
intimated and soon make this objection
as groundless in appearance as it is in
reality. Certain it is if there are any
"gifts" among us they would be thus
elicited. Hlow surprising it is that we
should complain of scarcity of preachers,
when we by our present conduct,neglect,
discourage or forever conceal the gifts
which we have I
Objection 2n1. " We cannot support
a minister in each Church."
This too is exposed to the charge of
misconception of the object we should
have in view in meeting together. And
we notice it si:np!y with the design of
denying that each of our Churches as
a general thing, is unable to support a
minister. This of course rests-upon facts,
and to them we appeal for the truth of
But grant we are too poor'to support
a ninis er in each Church. All will:ad
mit we dre ht too poor to do our.,-duty
Now have we done this? Have oennet
God ? And have we seen that the Lord
has failed to perform his part? To
increase our stores ? To improve our
temporal condition? and above all to
'enlarge our hearts, so that we may feel
willing to contribute to the utmo:t ot our
ability ? Then, and not till then. will
this plea avail us any .thing.
Ooje.ction 3rd. " Very few persons
would meet with us on every Lo d's
day,and much too few of that class whose
benefit we would design."
We ask who are these ? and would
pause for a reply, did we not know, that
the objector is laboring under a tdreadfi
ignorance of the nature of his ou i case.
Christians, true and genuine, are con
vinced of their own lamentable :ack of
holiness, which it is the principal design
of our assembling together to promote.
But we deny, that so few. persons would
attend, if, as is proper,the custom should
be held sacred, and viewed as binding
upon all christians, and if the love of
God and immor tat -souls glowed in out
hearts, with all that warmth which the
case demands and God enjoins.
Various other objections may be ur
ged, which can be repelled with great
ease, but we chroose not to be burden
some to you.
In conclusion, wve ask you to weigh
what we have advanced in thre balanices
of Scripture. Try the course, we are
convinced, thre Bible reconurends. Try
it with faith in its efficacy, not wi ith a
timed apprehension of its failure. Try
it wiith a firm conviction thrat it is pro.
per, that it is your dirty, and that Gud
will bless you in it, though the bles
sing tarry. See if it will not knit your
hearts together as the heart of one man,
if it will not be a touchstone of sinceri
ya preventive of spiritual decay, and
a remedy of numberless evils whic~h wve
might point to, as existing in the very
heart of too many Churches, and oppos,
ing formidable barriers to thre spread of
the Gpspeh. trethrre-n, farewell!

our many causes of complaint in 'which
all could so readily join. That South
Carolina came into this Union a free and
independent State, every one believes.
Every one is conscious of the sacrifices she
has ever mide fur our common Union;
and while contemplating the shameless re
turns she has received. and the reproaches
with which she has been insuilted, we are
all doubtless prepared, should such things
continue, to resort to ,otne effectual mea
sures of redress. It is fur that day of trial
we would have you prepare our people
not by inciting them to were paper re
solves or windy gasconadIes about State
Rights without any intention to maintain
them ; but. by the enlightenment of our
people to their true interest; by teaching
them a nise husbandry of their resources;
by a prompt anJ energetic exercise of
those capacities of the Stares, which will
m:ske her, what every truly inlependent
State should be--industrious and produc

From the earliest period of our history
to the prescnt time, the condition of :5.

out a shamef'ul depentdenco upon other

no erzaggeration,. stand upon otto of -the
w ~harves of' our tmetropolis, and behold a
picture of our trade.

The ship is now landing 'her rmerchhn

bundlesof Nor thertn hay ; rolls from her
deck Northe-rnl carts atnd drays to carry the
hay; and Northiern horses to drag it.
Northern osrlors followv with northern grain
to feed the horses, with Northern harness
to hitch them, and Northern whips to
open te hatches-there is Northern
flour and hops and soda and salt to make
bread.; but with northtern butter to butter
it. Northern beef and beans, potatoes,
cabbages, onions, and pork to-feed our
people, an"'Northern drinkfibles 10 wash
dorwn what they eat- Northern pans,
ovengand roasters to Cook our food, with
Northern knives and forks to cut it up.
Northernt p~ckles atnd sauces, to tickle"our
appetites, atd even Northern dentists,
with Northern teeth, to enable us to chew
our food. We sit down inl Northern chairs,
to Northerntables, docked out with North
ern plates, dishes and 'glass ware ; and
when we get-up, call for our Northern
hats, gloves and sticks; walk out over
pavements made of Northern stone--foot
ed in Northern boots, and clothed with
Northern clothing. We return home at
night bj the light of Northern lamps, to
seep upon bedsteads with Northern bed
ding. We eat, drink, and are merry at
Northern labor; when sick, swallow
Northern medicines; and when we die,
are packed up in Northern coffins. put
into graves dug with Northern spades, and
have Northern tablets to tell where the
only thing Southern in us lies.
We know we will be told that though
these various wants are not furnished by
ourselves, we nevertheless raise that which
enables us to procure them-else the Nor
thern people would not supply us. We
are as indisposed to deny the proposition,
as we are to deprive the Northern people
of the merit of becoming our masters, by
the exercise of superior thrift, ingenuity
and skill. We know these people are too
wise to sow where there will be nothing to
reap ; we moreover know that our Cotton
and Rice enables us to supply our wants,
and comforts and luxuries, and we know
that a self-denying philosophy will say,
rest satisfied here. What more do you
want ? But, we are not satisfied. We
lel the ambition of seeing our native
State, rot less industrious or enterprising

a competitor in the career of greatness,

behold fields not less fertile, than else.
where ; rivers not less navigable, water
courses rtot less powerful, and harbore not
less capacious than in most countries-we
see Nature not less affluent, and Provi

we feel, that only her citizens are back

KICKSIIA AWS FOR rl E PEOPLE.
The crops about Pendleton are very
itre.-Ws were forciibly struck by the
improved condition of the lands, and the
general attention which seems to have been
paid to the culture of the Pea. On Mr.
Cherry's farm, near Janeca, we noticed
upland, we'thought worn Out years.ago,
producing remarkably heavy crops ofcorn
and peas. Its restoration we were told was
mainly to he attributed to the Pea. We
understand that Mr. Caihoun has paid great
attention to the subject. and from experi;
ments made, is satisfied that the Pea
would be to the South, what the Clover is
to the North. We have had fields pointed
out to us which had been completely rca:
tored in a few years, by being planted ii
Peas, and the uroduct allowed to rot upon
the ground. If the vines were turned under
about the first of October, it would 'be
tmore beneficial we are sure, than a Clover
lay. We beard a very intelligent- farmer
say the othter day, that last year he sowed
a field in wvheat-part of which was freilh
land, and much stronger than the -other
portion. on the poorer part he had Pea
vines in abundatnce, and that you could
mark the wheat at a distance of a hundred
yards - lie had thought the.Peacuilmure was
all a fal-lal-now lie was a convert. We
have noticed repeatedly by the waysides
fine lots of Crop grass growing-st by do
not the people: cut it,-it tnakes an excellent
hay, cot so, nutritous as Herd's grass to
Timothy, but far better than fodder, It is
very easily. cut and 6ured ; one hatnd can
easily cut and cure an acte in aBday, often
equalrto a tonl of hay.-How long wotuld
it take a hand to pull and't ure a ton of
fodder. -Fodder pulling is al most tedious
aud un profitable bustmess, if hay could be
saved for our hlorses-the corni would be
improved by -leaving the fodder on'- the
stalk, more in weight.and quality, -than

to feeding on fodder. It is strange, 'w-ho
