The world for sale! hang out-the sign,
Call every traveller here to me;
Who'll buy this brave estate of mine,
And sat me from earth's bondage free !
'Tis going' yesI mean to fling
The bauble from my soul away;
I'll sell it whatsoe'er is bring;
The world at auctionhere to-day !
It is a glorious thing to see.
Ah ! it has cheated me so-sore !
It is not what it seems to be:
For sale !-it shall be mine 'no more.
Come turn it o'er and-view it well,
I would not have you purchase dear;
'Tis going!-going-r must sell!
Who.bids t Who'll buy the splen'did tear?
Here's wealth in glittering heaps of gold:
Who bids!. But let me tell you fair,
A baser lot Ves never sold; "
Who'll buy the heavy heaps of Care:
And here spread out in broad domain,
A gotdly landscape all may trace,
Iall, coutap tree, field, hill and plain,
Who'll buy himself a burial place I
Here's Love, the dreamy potent spell,
That beauty fings around the heart ;
I know its power alas! too well;
'Tis going. Love and I must part!
Must part! What care I more with Love !
I'll never court its smiles again
Who'll buy the plumeless dying dove
An hour of bliss-an age of pain t

Whoe'er lath found the jewel his 1
Frail, fickle, false, and little worth:
Who bids for Friendships as it is t
'Tis going!--going-Hear the call:
Onoe, twice and thrice !-Tis very low !
'Twas once my hope, my stay, my, all,
But now the broken staff must go!
Fame! Hold the brilliant meteor high,
How dazzling every gilded name!
Ye millions, now's the time to buy ;
How much for Fame ! How much for Fame !
Hear how it thunders! Would you stand
On high Olympus, far renown'd,
Now purchase and a world command.
And be with a world's curses crown'd.
Sweet star of Hope ! with ray to shine
In every sad forboding breast,
Save this desponding one of mine;
Who bails for man's last friend-and best?
Ab !- were not mine a bankrupt life,
Thil treasure should my soul sustain;
But Hope and I are now at strife,
Nor ever may unite aenin.
No more for Life's filful dream,
Bright vision vanishing away ;
My bark requires a deeper stream,

I will give you two or three good rules which
sy help you-to become happier than you would

The first is, " try. your best to make -others
appy." "1I never was. happy," said a certain

re of my people; but ever since then, in the
tarkest day, I hare hadesunshine in my heart.",
My second rule is, U Be content with little."
'here-are many good reasons for this -rule. We
leserve but little, we require but. little, and
begis little, with the roar of God, than great
reasures and trouble therewith." Two men
y're determinted to be rich, but they set about
in different ways; for the one strove .to raise
ip his juna to his desires; while the other did
s beet to bring down his desires to his means.
'he result wa', the one who coveted much'was
ways repining, while he' who desired but little
vas always contented. -
My third rule is, "look on the sunny aide od
Look up with hopeful eyes,
Though all things seem forlorn;
The sun that sets to-night will 'rise
Again to-morrow morn.

I American dislike-of the te'i:Alliance, than

because both are great, ng,:grasping and
ambitious. No such re .analogies would
avail to overbear the tho ties of sympathy
which kindred, community inciple, and com
mercial interest create bet 'us and England.
But the alliance of Fran England had no,
Ssooner been formed, thanI ations were given
that it might serve to ren tb n mbition and
cheek the growth of the' ld' tes. Lord
Clarendon said that it 'gned for
Russia alone, but would power t and effi.

,.ra ..,.-i.o.ning, certainly, could be
i better calculated to check all sympathy for the
Allies, and to turn the whole tide of public feel.
- ing against them. The disposition of our coun
try is to remain neutral. No American interest
is involved in 'the issue of the pending war:
and, as nations are governed by interest, and not
- by sympathy, everything inclines us to remain
'i mere spectators of the great contest. We shall,
r of course, form our own opinions of its origin
and its objects; but there is no danger that we
shall depart, in any way, from the duties of a }
- anct neutrality. That we have not done so,
- the Times concedes. Our ships have respected
t the Baltic blockade ; and while we have refused
to permit Ennlish enlistment on our soil, we
hvalowithheld sympathy and aid from (he
Sactive, earnest and energetic movements of the
e 'Irish to embarrass Enland, and add domestic
Y rebelliog to her foreign war.
S" If the Times desires to change this state of
0 things--to di-ive us from our neutrality into an
n active sympathy with Russia-it takes the most
1 effective course possible, by threatening us with
i the supervisory interference of the Alliance.
n For, upon one thing the Times may count with
g perfect certainty ; any attempt of. England and
sFrance to interfere with the relations 'of the
' United States to . Mexico, to Cuba, to Central
* Amerca, or to any other country on this conti
i neat-except to. secure the .payment of debts,
-or to.protect their own vested interests--will be
ir resisted, and, of need be, resisted, by waar. T[hat
war may be "long and dangerous;" but no
matter hoW long nor how dangerous, it will be
" welcomed eagery, by the great mass of our
' people; it will be waged, year aftser year, at a
r. cost of millions of money and thousands of
a lives, rather than submit to the surveillance with
* which we are threatened. And it is the threat
n of such an attempt, every now and then thrust
Id upon us, that represses sympathy with England,
W and checks. even exultation over such splendid
io triumph of valor and skill as the'capture of So
1s bastopol. It is asking too much to expect that
we will applaud a power whose next achieve
[ meat isto be our own destruction.
,e " For our own part, we have no apprehension
to of any sueh movement. We do- not believe
ie that-either England or France designs to under
at take the coercion of this country in any matters
of relating to our own hemisphere. Nor do we be
lieve the alliance could survive such an attempt
saa single mouth. The people of England will
i never permit a war with this country on any
of such ground. They cannot afford it.. .Their
rcommerce withas-their manufactures, depen
ef dent upon us at once for raw material and for a
it market-their manifold relations with us, involv
-i ing, to so great an extent, their means of sup.
or port ando comfort-are of infinitely more
~ mportanc'e to them, than Mexico, Cuba, or the
awhole of South 'America. And if every one of
re these countries were seized and settled by Yan
it, keen, no people would profit more by the change
pthan the English."
er A shocking affair occured at Brooklyn, N. Y.,

CE uAR Fairs, S. C., Sept. 1855.
in presenting the following Protest for pblic
cation, it isproer to stats the cir'uustance in
which it' ongna 'd.
'The 4tli Artcle.' of the aOristitution of the
Reedy River Association reads thus:-" This
bedy'shill have -no coercise power, to lord it
over God's heritage, or to infringe any of the
internal rights' of the. Churches in our Union,
(while they remain orderly) bat shall only be
considered an advisory council in all matters re
specting their internal concerns; .nevertheless,
it becomes necessary to attend to some uniform
rules of proceedings, in order to maintain our
Union. and Christian fellowship.".
The 11th Article is as follows:-" The-Asso
elation sk all have power to exclude.any Church
from this. Union, ibho shall depart from the.
orthodoxpriuciples of the Gospel." .
The 11th Article of the Abstract of Princi
ples, says:-" We believe that no ministerjas
aright to the administration of the ordinances,
only such as.lave been called of God, reoularly
baptized, approved of by the Church, .anome
under the imposition of hands by the IPresbytery."
The 18th Artiele'of the Minutes, September,
1854, presehts 'the following -record, viz
" Whereas, it has been brought to the notice of
this Association, that Rabin's Creek Church has'
reCeived a meinber froni one of the Pisdo-Baptist
dnominations; in violation of the 11th Article
of.the Abstract of Principles,
"Therefore, .Resolred, 'That the Association
admonish Raban's Creek Church, and 'request
her to.rescind her.aet." -
- When this case came up for consideration at
our recent Session, September, 1.855, .a paper
was .presented to the Association by one of the
dlegates of Rabun's Creek Church, and read
before the body--breathing this.spirit:

The 15th Article of our Minutes,. 1855, thus
records the action of. the Association as unani
mous:--Whereas, strenuous exertions, though
ineffectual, were made by a minority, to record
their names in opposition to the re-solution, re
garding it as radically wrong, because it made
the Abstract of Principles the basis of action,
instead of the New Testament, and because it
was an assumption of powers by the Associa
tion, which the Churches never had, and never
ought to confer on an ecclesiabti:al body.
The Standing Spring Church, in her letter to
the Association, says: * *- * '-We have
taken two members into our Union, from the
Church known as-the Campbellites, upon letters
of recommenditioLn, without experience or re
baptism. * * *, These members have been
received without any atlterattons of rules or
priniples, and have come under the government
of our Church as regu'ar Baptist. * * We
hope you will, in your 'advisory conneil, decide
for us, whether or not we can sustain ourselves
in what we have.dono, so as to remain Baptists,
and promote, the Redeemer's kingdom on earth,
as this should be-Qur chief aim."
-The matter was referred to a Select Commit
tee, who made the following report, which the
Association adopted, (by a mnjority.
(Article 16th, Minutes, 1855.) :* * *.
"Whereas, it has been brought to the notice of
the Association, by the Standing Spring Church
that they have received members into their fel
lowship from, and opened communion with the
Campbellites, in violation of our Abstract of
Principles ; therefore,
Resolved, That we recommend the Association
to admonish said 'Chureci, and advise her to
rescind her act.- -.

'On the afternoon of Saturday, a motion was
made to s.triki out the 11t.h Article of the Ab
stract of Principles. .This amended motion was
discussed with much ability by Elders J. J.
Brantly. and Win. B. Johnson, D.'D.', and Hion.
J B. O'Neall, all in favour of striking out the'
Abstract of Principles. The argument was
drawn from the fact,. that the Association had
given this Abstract of Principles all the authori
ty of law, and had arraigned before .her, and
jdged and, punished two of ithe Churches for
violating 'it. They maintained that the only
loitimate use, and only excuse for an A bstract
of'Priiiit1es, ,was' to exhibit to the world the
doctrises generallyi held by the denomination,
without compelling cdnformity of belief on the
part of'the Churche"; to each and allkof the doc
trines it might contain.' It would be better to
give it up altogether, and take the Bible -alone,
than that the Churches should thus Buffer from
Its perversion. The - speakers pointed out with
much foree the tendenoy.'of. power, to accumu
late in- the hands of rulers; and the danger of
enroachments by ecclesiastical bodies,.and of
concessions by -the Churches. Some, of t~he
pointewere controverted by. some of the breth
ren, but no effort was made to answer the argu
ment in detail. To terminate the matter, it
was moved by Elder A. K. Durham, to refer the
whole matter to the Churches, for their decision;
which' disposition would have-been entirely sat.
isfactory to the~ minority ; but his motion was
amended, to "postpone indefinitely," which
Thus the hopes of getting the matter broughi
fairly before th6 Churches, being again cat off
a few of the minority agreed upon 'a Protest
which they designed to present to the Associa.
tion, and invite-all to sigh,' who concurred in the
views and. sentiments therein -contained; Th<n
Protest was drawn- up, and presented on Mon.
day, by Elder D. J1. Pearce,' who asked leave tc
read it, and have it entered on' the -face of the
Minutes. ~The Ass6eiation refused to hear il
read. A few of us, nevertleess, attached oui

Whereas, the Reedy River-Baptist Associa
Lion at the-present Session, September, 1956
separaTd the Rabun's Creek Church from he
membership, on account of-an alleged-departur
from the orthodox principles of the Gospel, it
violation .of the- 11th Article of the Abstract o
Principles, aidadvised the minority tb join sotie
Church of the same faith and order; and this; too
though a - large number of 4he Church; even-e
majority in a communication read before the
Association, informed the body that they were
not convinced of h'ving done wrong, and asled
the Association to enlighten them on the subject,
as some of the ablest' men in the deiomiation
were divided on the subject; or at least, tol wai
-another year with them, as the subject was under
discussion ; - -
And whereas, the Assocition rcceived-notice
from the Standing Suiring Church,- that she hai
received members from the Campbellites, upor
letters of recommendation, and had opened cor.
respondence with that branch of the Church
and asked the decison of the body as an adviso.
ry couhcil, as to a continuancewith the Baptists;
the Assdciation; instead of doing her duty' as
an advisory ' o:Incil,: passed the foliowing reso:
lation, reommarended b the' Committee to
whom the case was submitted,-viz':
-"Resolved, Thnt we recommend to the Asso=
ciation to admonish said Church, and -dvis3 e
to rescind her act."
- Therefore, we, the undersigned, members ol
the Association, do solemnly- enter out Protest,
andrequhst it to be entered on the Minutes of
tie body, against the acts of the.Association in
lt: Because,-- in both cases the ground of
action assumed, is that these Churches have
violafed 'the 11th 'Article: on the. Abstract of
Principles, when'the 11th 'Article of the: Consti.
tution of the Association says: . - -
" TheAssociatien shall have power-to exclude
any'Chureh from this Union, who shall depart
from- the -orthodox prinaciples of the Gospel,"
without saving shown to these. Churches from
the Scriptures,. that they -departed from the
orthodox principles,, and have refused to tem
bers of the Rabun's Creek Church, the request
of .a year's delay, that they may-afore maturely
consider the matter,. and further, to show them
the scriptural, proof of their alleged errs . .
And in the case of the Standing Spring
Church; they, the Association, have refused her
request,o act 'as an advisory. council, in not
counselling. her. upon the grounds of the.deci
sion, which they, the body-may.have made; and
further, because, in adopting this course. they
have done that to this Church, which. tieir Con.

lordship over God's heritage, whilst they ulaim

A KEEN -RETonT.-Some time ago, Lewis
Tappan, the wellknown abolitionist, had the
assurance to addre-s a letter to Gen. John H.
Coclc, of Virginia, urging him and his son-in
law to emancipate one thousand slaves, whom
Ta ppan alleges these gentlemen hold-In: bondage.
This letter was published in the New York Tri
bune, and copied into many other papers. -To
this impudent letter Ur. Phillip St. George
Cocke replies in- the 'Whig of Monday. His re
ply is brief, but it is a- crusher. After quoting
Tappan's lette, he says:
"-Now, sir, as it is w'ell understood-at least
in the community in which I live-that I am th
person alluded to by you, under the designatior
of the "son-in-law" of Gen. Cocke, I shall takt
the liberty of expressing to yoti, through a chian

pharisaical, canting, and ungentlemanly tono an<
tenor of your wvhole letter, and of saying, sir
further,:to you, that. when you, together- with
your wvhole fraternity of abolitiouiists, shall havu
clothed, housed, fed .and otherwise cared for
and improved " one thousand" of the wyretehe<
free negroes,in your own midst, or shall, laat
done the same thing for "one thousan~d" of thu
white slaves and paupers among the tens' o
thousands of such who are allowed to experi

by Gen. Cocke's. shaves an4 niy own, you, sir

to do, althouigh you should spend a long life o

the deficiency is one-twelfth of the usual hau

remedy is to hold out the -most liberal induce

the Goivernment was-imprudent enough-to lowe

-be sold at a loss-if it should think fit to tak
