fellow-citizens, with me, are above all price.
Permit me, therefore, to return through you,

THE COLUMBIA CAROLINI[AN turns up next.
without the least intention ou our part of so arrang
ing it. The Carolinian is a great favorite all over
the State. Dr. Giniacs has, in its direction, shown
himelf an industrious and tasteful caterer fur the
publie's amsemctent'and edification. The Doctor has
moreover steered his vessel well, politienilly speaking;
and his paper at this miomenit commnainds as much of
the confidence of the State as any other paper within
oar borders. The number now in hand states the
fact that the Saluda Cotton Factory is again in opera
tion, and is now called the "Columbia Mill." Its
osnaburga took the premium at the State Fair of
November last.-The Kansas meeting held in Column.
bia resulted in over six hundred dollars. Another
THlE ABBJEVILLE INDEPENDENT PRESS of
the 1ith Inst., presents a very neat and clever array
of news paragraphs; also, a hopeful review of the
last Report of the President and Directors of the G.

roadi is steadily increasing. (Would it not be a des
prate case if this were not so,?) It seems too t.hat the

so of course the macbinae would'nt work well. The
editor howev-er giv-es a cheering account of a Temper

by speaking of the ladies as the strongest power in
the business of Temiperance reform. Rtight enough.
Bt yet are they not sometimes (we ask purely for
Iinformation) the "ctroungest pouwer" in driving a poor

TIlE CilARLESTON COURIER is another paper
always filled to everfiowing with interesting matter.
Th'ourier, we should think, makes more money
than any other paper in South Carolinua, and, by con
sequence, is enabled to employ more pens and heads
and hands in its getting up. Seldom is there a num

add, as a critical family visitor. Recently though it PO

THE SPARTANBURG SPARTAN of the 16th, t
besides discoursing sensibly upon the " Slave Trade,"
tells us that an enormous blue crane was caught In th
Spartanburg District the other day by one Jar.
Bisnor; it was 4 feet 11 inches high and measured
6 feet 1 inch from wing-tip to wing-tip. We also learn
by the number before us, that the cost of buildings is
less in Spartanburg than in Greenville by great odds;
that Mr. WALicux of the Deaf and Dumb Institute
presented Judge O'NZALL recently with a pear raised be
near the Institute which weighed seventeen ounces;
and that the population of Spartanburg Village Is
now about 2,000, having in their midst Wofford Col
lege, the Spartanburg Female College, various Chur- ga
ches, &c., &c. But in spite of all these, the Spartan
youths will Aot behave themselves as they should.
They have been laughing and staring at people as
they went into Church latterly, and " OsaEnviu" (a
correspondent of the Spartan) gives it to them after
this fashion : fei
" Are these the material of a future glorious man- as
hood? Whose children are they?
Have they a father-have they a mother? do
Have they a sister-have they a brother ? in
" Fatherless. notherless! al
Sisterless, brotherless ! b

Near a whole city full,
Frienda they have none !" ur
Look after these little boys. Take them with you vi
into the church, and train them up ' in the way they hi
should go." OBSERVER. at
We hope none of our boys need to have such a )
rebuke applied to them.-By the way, our friend of be
the Spartan makes a uistake in calling one of our to
candidates for Congress " Mr. L. BoNHAu, It should ou
have been "1 M. L. BosUAM."
TIE SPARTANBURG EXPRESS is another elf
staunch repreentative of the Iron District, and has ty
grown to the full size of its elder brother within the
last year. The Express is conducted with a mixture be
of prudence and spirit which must insure its success
ful onwurd iarch, and upon which we congratulate t
it. editors.-Fron the issue upon our table we learn
that a New Female High School is about to be estab
lished at Wakefield Springs, some 14 miles from Spar
tanhurg Coeurt House. An academic school for boys
is also to be located there. The E.press siays the
whtle affiir will assuredly prove a success, and adds:
We really feel proud of our District and her citi
zens, when we are called upon to chronicle such un
mistakeable evidences of progress and improvement or
as those which we have just given. They point to a w,
future not far distant in our history when we shall
acknowledge no superior among our sister Districts
of the Sitte in religion, morals, general intelligence, fo
and all that makes a model people.
All very true. Spartanburg is doing her duty. Let ek

THE CHARLESTON COURIER.
Mfuch to our surprise, the Courier seems 'cut to the
ick' by our playful remarks of last week upon
lut WAR or 1:Za GIANTS." We are surprized, be
ise we neitheE intended to "lampoon" nor "har
in" our big cotemporary, but simply (in a good
mored way) to express an opinion on the result of
intable passage at arms between two esteemed mem
rs of the South Carolina Press. We neither en
evored nor desired to treat the Courier either dis
pietfully or indely; and our anticipation was, that
notice (if any) of our comments in the matter,
uld be characterized by thesame good-humor which
felt and manifested. Judge then our astonishment,
on reading theeategorical strictures in the Courier's
00 of the 8tli instant. We were tiken aback, and
for awhile ruminating over the possible ciies of
, unique damonstration. One conjecture after
other arose'and was dismissed as monstrous, until
sntually we settled down upon the hypothesis, that
Courier felt itself whipped in the argument and
aid not bear to be told of it aloud.
Forgive us now, ye Gods! if we notice the points
the Courier' piece, seriatim:
let. Says that. Journal: "The Edgefield Advert&
attempts to be witty. But the attempt is a dead
lure." The h~est evidence that the Courier does not

2ndly. "The Edgefield Advertiser is decidedly vul
r." We are "vulgar," it appears.bec'aueewe quoted
'm the " old.war ditty" the words:
'"Then keep your sword, says Hull.
-liner it only makes you dull
Come cheer up, let us take a little brandy, oh!"
And because we added thereto thislaughing remark:
Ces! take a drink, father Yeadin, and forget the de
6t. It will be all the same fifty years hence." We
tort of this remark. that we meant the "futher Yea.
a" In respectful playfulness; that we had no object
the use of the expression "take a drink." except to
ply the last line of the " old war ditty;" and that
the languag "forget the defeat," we meant pre
ely what we said. Any onewho can, after this nat
il interpretation of our meaning, charge us with

ANOTHER VIEW OF BIBLE REVISION.
Mn. EDITOR :-In your paper of April 8th, is a
communication, signed "J," whose subject is "Bi
ble Revision," the object of the writer being main
ly to oppose this move. In his article the writer
gives his views clearly and dispassionately, citing
numerous authorities in support of his argument,
making perhaps one or two quotations front the
work itself, his expressed purpose being, to awa
ken in the minds of the people, a just sense of
this great move in the religious world.
In order to carry out this design more fully, I
hope he will pardon me for looking at the subject
in a different light. The writer sets out by saying,
" this (Revision) is treading on sacred grounds,"
&c. We hope no one doubts the sacrednets of
God's Holy word, neither in the inspired text, nor
in the imperfect translation of James; but as this
work was performed by uninspired men, it is rea
sonable to suppose them not entirely incapable of
error. The blessed word of God contains no error,
for God cannot err, but the errors are man's, they
are not sacred, and mian may tread upon them not
only with impunity, but, I hope, with benefit, if
not now, at least in ages to conme. Because James'
version " has been in use two hundred and fifty
years," dues not argue that it cannot be improved.
:Since we first heard of this version, we have heard
many, very many, imperfections as'knowledged by
all who profess any knowledge of the original;
and because these errors have existed for two and
a half centuries, wher. " personal feeling, party
preju~ce', sectarian bias, have interfered where
principle, truth, the actual facts alone should
have been admitted," is no reason they mst con
continue to the end of time.
The wt iter ask.s, " what has this fast age found
wrong in the old Biblec? May we not rather ask,
what has it fotund wrong in us l That instead of
shaping our contduct by its teachings, we are try.
ing to make it sustain onr opinions and p~ractices1."
From the writer's argument, we suppose. by the
old Bible, be mecans James', which he acknowl
eges is impesrfeest; and is said, on goodnuthority,
o contain more thtan 25,000 errors. If in a Book
the siz.e of the Bib:e, involving such vast interests,
both in this, and the world to conme, this does not
require Revision, then we can form no idea of
what would require it. What " this fast age " is
pointing ent in the old lBible was discovered nmany
ages ~ast, but as was said before, our predec.-ssors
id not correct, fronm causes already mentioned.
iut this last accusaition by the writer of trying to,
nake it suit our own " opinions and plractices," is
the most unrighteous o'f thenm all. I dlo not know
his grounds. I have never heard thcene accused,
tven by the most violent opeposers of Revision, of
even a thought of altering th~e original, wheic~h they
bhaII as sacred as he dones the translation of James.
"He that hath my word let hinm speak my word
aithfully," is itn part the' motto of the association.
Surely no man professing to teach the word of' Di
ine truth, invoking the assistance and the bhs-s
ing of God in his labors, would be guilty of such
The writer further says, " the Bibele las passed~
hrough thme hands of revisionists before.'' This
w grant, and furthi-r state that James *is not
she first who attempted to translate the Biible; andi
te bad just as well go beack to thme first, and there
by avoid the distinctive pecttliarities " of all suc
:eeding ages. Just here I woul ask to say, that
James' version Itself is not free from thme " distinct
ive pe::uliarities " of the age in which it was writ
e; for on the first page of the new testalmnt we
rad, "the Gospel accordling to S .int Mathew."
[ like manner " Snint Mark," &c. The pirefix
3aiunt, is of Popish origin, and agreeabile to the
Churc of England, the Revelation of Saint Johnt
e Divine, is in Popish forma. In James' trantsla
ion, in perhaps four or five places we find the ex
:lamation, " God save the King." This version
*he original dues not war, ant andI is evidenttly hu-t
nan addition, being the EnglIsh national exclama
ion of loyalty suitable to English taste, and K'ng
The writer next goes on to quote Mr. Ilodge of
Brooklyn, who says, " a man who can give a per
ect translation," &c., &c. We do not know Mr.
El. nor do we doubt his competence or sincerity,
mt the place we do not like and think no more,
ntay-be less, of anythitng emanating from that quar
r Because a work cannot, be mtade perfect dues

vord of God, antd the whole world would have de
erved, long cre this, the sentence of the servant,

The writer continues by giving Dr. Cones' ideas
>f the rendering of the word Baptize. This two
teems to be a feeble objection to the work, because
me soord cannot be translated to suit all sects, the
ehole must be rejected. Now, I do not wish to
lecide for the people in the matter of rendering
;his word into English, nor am I willing to resign
hat office to " J" or Dr. C. but let them judge
or temselvs-let them think, whether or not,
vrould men in the performance of that most sacred
rdinance, repair to a distance. where "much
sprinkling or some other slight wetting-passing
perhaps. many wells, where no doubt, sufficient
water could be obtained for any of these purposes,
short of a thorough head and ears immersion.
"J " next gives a little extract from a speech of
the Rev. Mr. Cushman. " The English Bible is
not sufficiently defective except in relation to Bap
tism and Church Order, to be distrusted as a guide
to truth and duty." I think this distrust exists
nowhere except in the mind of the Rev. Mr. C.,
for the Revisionists acknowledge it to be "the
people's standard of revealed truth." " A noble
work; taken altogether, it is unequaled." If this
he distrust, then we have no co: ception of trust.
For ' further evidence" of the "lealing object
of Revisionists," the writer refers to a difference
which sprng up between the members of two
Bible Societies, in regard to this word Baptize.
Because a set of men cant agree upon any given
point, it is not just to accuse either party simply
upon the ground of difference in opinion. We
read of a separation which took place between
Paul and Barnabas, two humble servants of the
blessed Saviour, on account of a difference in
opinion with regard to the nephew of the latter;
yet no one doubts the motive of either of these
holy men, being to perform, to the best of their
ability, the work of their Divine Master.
" J" next scoms to hint, that the real purpose
of the Revisionist Is bid behind something appa
rent, and cites, for example, that they dwell upon
passages of Scripture which appear to contradict
one another. We admit they do a little more than
this; they point out real contradictions, which
they know and avow never existed in the original,
"2d Kings, 8: 26, states that Ahaziah was "two
and twenty years old when he began to reign; 2d
Chron. 22: 2, says, "he was forty and two years
old when he began to reign," making a difference
of twenty years. 2d Sam. 8: 4, " and David took
from him a thousand chariots and seven hundred
horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen," &c. In
the account of the same fact, in Ist Chron. 18; 4,
we read, "and David took from him a thousand
chariots and seven thousand horsemen, and twen
ky thousand footmen," &c. In the' one passage,
David is said to have taken seven hundred horse
men from Hadadezer, in the other seven thousand.
Both statements cannot be true, for both refer to
the same fact.
The writer states that " the impression is being
made upon the public, that other denominations
beside the Baptist, are engaged in the work of Re
vision." For a list of these, I refer him to Mr.
Jas. Edmunds, in Louisville, Ky., from whom, I
think he will learn that there are seven other de
nominations beside the Baptist. But suppose the
Baptist is the only denomination engaged in it, are
they incapable of performing a good work? or
because they are few, must their labors be rejec
ted I If you will call to mind the history of
Christ, you will see them was a timi when our
blessed Redeemer had but few followers, and the
" new religion " callrd " a dangerous doctrine "
far worse than the Revision.
"J" next objects to " the snug salaries." Now,
Mr. EDITOR, I ask you-I ask this people for
whom he writes, if this be any objection to the
work ? Salaries are generally not "snug" enough.
I believe he is the first man that ever objected to a
snug salary in " this fast age " at least. But se
riously, do we not sometimes pay our blinisters
"snug salaries " for their labors in preaching the
Gospel, without objecting to the work I Is not
" the laborer worthy of his hire1I"
The fact of some of the most prominent Bap
tists themselves being opposed to the " movement,''
does not prove that it is sectarian, but on the other
hand, shows that It is not sectarian, for then it
seems the whole dlenomination would engage in it.
After having once passed over It, the writer obje.-ta
to the new rendering of the word Baptize, and in
support of his argument, adduces the objections
of Dr. Dowling, &c., &c., all of which in the eyes
of a scrutinizing public, must amount to very lit
t'e. Hfe next gives us Dr. Hague's ideas not of
Revision itself, but of the insurmountable objec
tion in the word Baptize, as if the whole impor
tance of the work rested on that single word.
Next he brings up Dr. Dowling again to say, " if
you expel this wordI from your Bible, you must
give up the namte of your sect, you must call your
selves Immersers," &ec. Well stuppose the Baptists
do give tup the name Baptist for one or all the
names ho nmentio'ns, must it therefore cause them
to give tup their belief 1 or dloes it go to confirm
themi more fully' in the very manner in which one
of their most sacred ordinances is performted 1 If
we know anything of Baptist belief, they do not
expect to reach the mansions of the blest, upon
the mecre recommendation of being called IBaptists.
This objiection of Dr. D's is no argument, (I con
ceive) aigainst the importance of Revisioni.
In reviewing this article, I have purposely avoid
ed making remarks upiont the quotation fronm the
revisi d version. of the Bible, because it is not con
sidercd a fair sptecimien of the work, and is no crn
teriani by which to judge it. I wouldl only ask
the curious ('n this subiject, to refer to the very
book fronm whtich "J" gets his verse, where they
can more fully satisfy themselves, as ton the merit
or demerit of Bible Revision. .1 USTICE.

DAVIS' PAIN KILLER,
I was attacked with dysentery, and it soon became
very distressing ; I used this medicine according to the
directions, and was cured in three days. My wife was
also attacked with pain in the stomach, in consequence
of eating too soon after a fit of sickness; she was re
lieved in a few minutes after takcing this medicine. To
use her own words, she said she felt the pain remove
after she had taken it, as quick as you could see a
lump of sugar dissolve in cold water. My son was
burnt so badly the skin was off; I applied the medi
cine immediately, and it took the fire out and healed
the wound in less time than I ever saw one healed he
fore. One of my children fell over a chair and bruised
its head very bad, but the bruise was soon dispersed
by bathing in this medicine. I will mention one case
more of its wonderful effect incuring awound inflicted
by my son's falling out of doors and cutting himself
badly; the pain was soon relieved, and the wound
healed by this medicine. In fact it is the best family
medicine I ever used for thie oure of colds, coughs, and
a number of other complaints incident to the human
family. PERRY M. PECKHTAM, Fall River.
