FarI MoNIxo, May, 185.-The spring, with
its myriad of Bower-lives, bird-voices, and sun
beam-arches, is with us again. So come to the
'Feast of the Roses,' all ye spirits of air, wood,
water, sky, and of human kind, and let us drink
a deep health-cup to genial spring; for lovely is
her presence unto us, and " beautifil upon the
mountains are the feet of those who come with
glad tidings." Ay, the fresh air and the green
earth; the beautiful sky, and the music of the
woods, have already done wonders with the " big
ugly " within. Away with moping over the fire,
and grave seats in the corner; away with all of
Jack Frost's rough tricks; we shall have nothing
now but sunlight and the flowers, and things that
are good for the soul.
Good humour reigns supreme this morning.
In the outer world all seems glad, and in the bright
sky over the spiritual land, I see not a cloul. 0,
this May-morning sunshine of the spirit, is glori
ou! I feel like stretching forth my hands, in
friendly greeting, to every soul in the land. Es
pecially do I send my love out upon the winds to
my.sweet friends, FANNtE, MARY and UNDINE;
Lixi and CARL. If they were by my side now I
would tell them as the Germans do; that "ily
heart, and the sea, and the heavens, arc melting
away with lore." Out of all that is beautiful and
comforting, within and witltout; and now, whilst
the heart is overflowing with gladness, and is wil
ling to open itself to others ;-whilst the soul-fires
burn so brightly upon the hearth-stone of the In
ner House, we might, perechance, be able to add
another exquisitely fitting stone, to the scul's tetm
pie, which we are so eagor to build for ourselves.
Ay, they had better come now; for this happy
feeling may be gone, long erc I see themt, and then
our grasp will be cold and feeble. When am I to
see them1' Answer me, ye Fates. "Ihow long
must I wait 1 0, evermore, and forever more,
must I stand at the beautiful gate " of Hope?
Speaking of the dear ones, LIsi and Cxar., and,
thtinking of their beautiful love for each other,
causes me to have a half formed wisht (1) th~at 1
too had a CARL. I wonder what I should do with,
him !! I gtuess I should love hima as LISA does,
with all my heart and soul. Do you recall Emt
merson's Essay upon Friendship?1 There is a little
extract from it that I remember to have read in
Miss Bremer's " Homes itn America," some two
years since. It runs tihus: "A friend is a person
with whom I may be sincere. B~efore him I may
think aloud ; I am arrived at last int the presence
of a man so real, so equal, shat I drop even those
undermost earmnents of dissimulation, courtesy,
and second thought which men never put off; and
may deal with him with the simplicity and whole
ness with which one chemical atom meets another."
Thus I was journalizitng at ten this mornina,
and no doubt I should soon have been as deep in
to the mysteries of our social being, as ever Waldo
Emmetson was; perhamps I shtould have "comi
passed sea and land " with Miss Bremer and Mar
garet Fuller, tnot to menttion sonme half dozen other
gifted spirits whose works lay on the table beside
me. Indeed there is no telling what I might have
done, had not just then two little roguish eyes muet
my own and a pair of tiny hands, ats soft and
white as a snowy dove's wing, thrust thctnselves
wide open upon the page before me.
" Tome, tousin Bertic," said Jamic Hilton, the
owner of these imupudent hands and eyes-a little
cousin who sojourned with us-" Uncle says you
must hear mine lesson ;" and thereupon he began,
his voice pitched in the key of five sharps

I could not help laughing at their sing-song cem
phasis, but my thoughts stopped not here. I had
not heard children read since I was a child. It
carried me back to years of hare feet, big-aprons,
and old field schools; when a wee totddlin thing, I
went to Mount Prospect School. Then associations
came a thousand fold. In a twinkling, I was trans
formed from a quiet, tedato young lady of twenty
summers, into a wild, merry child of six or seven.
All along the old school path from -our own big
gate at the end of the lane, to the same old log
school-house, I went with tin bucket on one arm,
and with my othter hand I swung my bag of books
aloft into the air. And what a race Ilhad from
Mr. Pollard's cows ; I am sure " I wished them in
the. bottom of the red sea.'' But I did not forget
to steal by thme old plutm thicket and filling my
pocket with the yellow and scarlet fruit, jumped
over Mr. Pollard's orchardi fence which was " hard
by," shook the trees which were so heavy with
red-ripe Jutne apples; and afterecratmming mty pock
etsq, sleeves (!) and apron with them, got quickly
into the path again, and started once more on my1
way to schtool. I looked up at the sun and judg
ing from it, and miy own inclination to play, thtat
it was scarcely eight o'clock, and seeing our play
ground near, I thought I would run over just a
little while and see if all was right at ottr play I

Tribulation ! and " oh !angels of mercy defend

The hogs had uprooted all of tly grsen grass from
the floor, over turned all the pretty rock rgats, and
even upset our superbsatump-bureau, andsidehwad,
which only yesterday gratned beneath the weight

ange the whole, when I espied on the hill just op.
iositc, that wild, mischievous Bill Nichols, and
ieard him calling ont in his stentorian voice,
3ooks! Books! Well, thought I, I will wait now
mtil play-time, and then T shall get Carrie Glenn,
Bettie Graham and Amanda Nichols to come and
ielp me fi. it up again. " You had better come
dong Bertha Chatham ;" said Bill Nichols to me,

:onie greeting." Meekly I stepped in at the door
iay, went behind the door to sit downf my bucket
md hang up my bonnet, and was about to take
iy seat with the other girls, when up came Mr.
Buchanan, with a face looking very much like
that of a storm-king, and just as he was prepar
ing to chastise my hand with a certain, long nar
row board-I awoke from this short second child
hood, to find that the little urchins, Fannie and
ieta had fled and left me to my visions. I can
not say that I wished them back; so I began to
And what, I ask in all sincerity, has become of
those who went with us to the old log school-house ?
Where dwell those sweet faces ? Who now hears
the glad laughter which then rivalled the mocking
bird in sweetness and melody. Where now wan
der the little feet that used to lave with us in all
the brooklets for two miles around the old play
ground? Into what streams do they paddle now ?
Where are all of those little blue and black eyes,
that we have seen sparkle so often 1 With what

grasp every morning of the year 1 0, tell me of
Then it was, I heard a voice, as it were, from
the clouds say, " and wouldst thou know of all
these things again1" I looked up and thre stood
before me a youfg girl from the land of spirits.
Awhile I stood entranced with her garments of
white, and her brow of dazzling light. I looked
into the soft blue eyes, saw her radiant smile; and
then I knew, that it was the spirit form of sweet
Carrie Glenn, that had come to visit me in this
hour of remembrance. It had been six years
since she went to her long home-to " the undis
covered country, from whose bourne no traveller
In a voice sweet and low, she said to me, " mourn
not, mourn not for the past? We played together
in earth's childhood-listened to the same birds
voices-gathered fruits and flowers from the same
gardens -played on the same grass-plots; now,
that you call to mind the early days, you miss me
from the old play ground. I cannot come to you
now, except in spirit; but be good, sweet child,
and we shall meet again, face to face, in the beau
tiful land where the Blessed dwell. Together we
shall wander hand in hand, upon the shores of
Paradise; and if you wish for flowers, we will
ather Daisies and wild Roses in heavenly groves.
So saying, she shook the morning dew from her
plumes and winged her flight back to the land of
Now, as we turn over th~e leaves of the heart,
we see a sweet prayerful face, in whose dark,
dreaming eyes, there is something thoughtful and
serious. It looks like sonme etherial piresenc, and
seems baptized in the pure waters of Peace and
Love. Such wvas Bettie Graham amongst us then
-in childhood. In a little brown cottage, on one
of the sloping hillsides of old Edgefield District,
amid a lovely oak grove, d wells this mate. A hap
py home is hers, with Father and Mother, brothers
and sisters. Pleasant he her stay amongst us;
and soothing lie her evening songs.
In happy contrast to this sober child of thought,
stands out upon the heart's canvass, the round fa
ced, rosy checked Amanda Nicho~ls. Well dho we
remember in days "lang syne," how we used to
stand in the yard at old Mount Prospect school
house, and gaze down the sunny hillside that wre
might catch the first glimpse of her as she came
trudging along, bearing her basket piled to the
top with juicy apples whose cheeks were as rosy
as any Dutch girl's, erinison cherries and golden
pumes. Then how we clung to her and begged
for a distribution of the fruits. "0O, for those glo
rious days of the past !"
She brings Hiesperian fruits to us no longer, but
dwells not far from us in a hiumble cottage, with
a loving husband and three pretty little Immiortals
to bless her home.
Besides these, there is a great merry-niaking
band, whose names arc somewhat forgotten, but
whose faces look like burnished gold in our
" heart of hearts."
But what has gone with all of that wild, roguish
lot of boys'? 0, how they used te tease and worry
us with their " hide and seek, fishing tackles, and
ball !"' We know of a few homes imade happy by
hem; of others, we have not heard ini a long
while. It would be pleasant to nieet themi after
ears of separation; biut we shall all be gathered
ogether never again, except in Eternal Lands.

prevented,) will perform divine service in the Episco
pal Church, on Sunday the 17th instant.

DEATH OF THOS. G. EICY, ESQ.
I- is with melancholy regret that we record the
demise of Tuos. G. KEY, a member of the Edgefield
Bar, who departed this life on Saturday evening last
in this Village. The deceased was a clever fellow in
every sense of that phrase. He was witty and so
cial, possessing a large fund of entertaining informa
tion and gifted with the ability of drawing upon it
with appositeness and taste. He was also skilful with
the pen, and years ago edited the Hamburg Journal
with much success. He had his frailties-who has
not? but they are buried with his body. Let us re
call his worth, and drop a tear over his untimely end.
Is largely given up this week to correspondents.
We wish to catch up with them and give every one a
proper showing at the proper time. On the Reri-ion
question, we must ask our friends to condense their
matter as much as possible. It is not a subject of
general interest, and articles upon it can only attract
the attention of the general reader by the qualities of
brevity and pith.
We regret to say that our other duties will not allow
us to attend to the next few numbersof the Adrertiser
as we could wish to do. After the 10th of June we
hope to get to our post again with renewed ardor.
Till then, Eguity asserts her authority and must be
obeyed. In the mean time, we hope contributions
from our writing readers will come in abundantly.
The Laurensville Herald has an additional editor
in Mr. W. L. HUDoss, who has just been engaged
by Mr. STOKES. Mr. HUDENS is a native of Laurens,
a young man of fine intellect and education, with a
pure moral character. The Herald further says of
" Although inexperienced in the trials and duties
of a weekly paper, he has contributed much valuable
matter to the columns of many of the most popular
journals of the State; and we feel assured he will be
found fully equal to the task he has assumed, so soon
as the editorial harness has settledfamiliarly on him."
We greet the new editor gladly, and wish for him
and our old friend a happy and a profitable- inter
cour.e. Under the direction of the latter, the Lau
rensville Herald has been a most useful paper. May
that usefulness now be doubly enhanced and doubly

In re-publishing an article from the Evening Xc,ce
in our issue of the 15th ult., the name of Chancellor
F. 11. WAtIDLAW was omitted from the list of distin
guished Carolinians who formed the Committee of
Twenty-One. It occured in this way: The 1ew. had
the Chancellor put down as a Secesulonist. We direc
ted this word to ho taken out and co.operuatonist sub
stituted. We wero misunderstood, and the name, as
well as the aeppellation, was taken out, and both left
out. It is not our custom to reamd the proof of the
outside of our ptaperi, that being attended to by our
intelligent co-publisher, D. R. D).; and so the mistake
remained uncorrected. We regret it; as it nmty have
the appearance of carelessness on our part in respect
to the name and fame of our esteemed and admired
fellow-itizen, the Chancellor. We arc very far fromt
entertaining for a mom1nt anty feeling of the kind.

.Dear Vir :-I have been muclh gratified boy thme pe
rum). of your late editorial upon Knsas. You are
right, sir. It is 11lperseverane" only that we need.
What has been done has been well done. We saved
the territory last year from the invasion of tbo Free
soiler, and frustrated his tremendous scheme. He
sent on his thousandsi and spent his millions in vain.
The Southern flag still wavos triumphautly from the
capital at Lecompton. Our friends are hopeful and
united. If we will aid them now in the very crisis of
the struggle, they will inevitably conquer, and writh
out ruin to their private estates. They have spent
themselves in defending our common rights. Their
victory is ours as their defeat will he also. Shall
Missouri, after all her gallant struggles, be forced at
last to sink her haughty crest before these nigger
thieves? Shall we suffer her, whom they can never
conquer, to be overwhelmed ? With a heart that never
wavered, a manlinessthat never quailed, she has thus
far waged an unequal contest, and stood firmly in the
Thermaopoelean pass, resisting victoriously the forces
of out-nuinbering invaders. Let us help her. WVe
hear the voice of glorious ATCHISON, calling upon us
fur aid. Let us give it to him.
I wish I could be at your Court Ihouse on sales-day
in May, but it is impossible, I shall be elsewhere.
Can you not, however, arouse your District, call a
meetinag, have some spirited addresses, raise money
and forward, it to Atchison, Platte City, Mfo., in a
cheek on New York. If it be but $11), it is, that
much. It will tell of Southern sympathy. It will'
cheer them *to come up to the contest in June with
that spirit that ensures success.

WJIAT TRAVELLERS SAY OF US.
In a recent number of " The (Richmot nd, Ya.,)
Iuth" we find a letter written from Aiken, ,. C.. most
if whtch has reference to our 'district, or at least to
he Ridge and ML Willing portions of it. This is
rhat the writer says of the Ridge:
Never was I more agrefably surprised at the aspect
if any country than after completing the first fifteen
ir twenty miles of my journey. I was on what is
alled the Ridge. It was a fine, open country, extend.

ifterwards opportunities of seeing nimny lipartions of

ver seen in the South. It is a very opi country,
lottel over with farm-huses. with every sign of thrift
mnd abundance to greet the eye, and croissel by seve
-al stinge-roads, lending to the cities of Augusta and
Jolumbin, and the smaller towns. *A good deal of

noximum, per acre, for land in this part of our dis
rict; it certainly is the case for the first twentymiles
if the road leading from Edgefield C. II., to Columbia.
The writer next notices the (then) pending election
o fill the vacancy in CongreFs oncasioned by the
loath of Hon. P. S. Bnoosc, and adds a feeling tribute
;o his memory. The crowded condition of our eol
imns prevents our giving more of this letter than the
:oncluding portion, in which the Mt. Willing Batal
ion Review is spoken of in terms highly applaudatory:

Mt. EDIu :-My attention has recently beeni
called to several articles in your paper, on the sub
ject of a revision of the English Scriptures. Al
though I am not in the habit of noticing anony
mous attacks upon the cause in which we are en
gaged. and the objections urged by your corres
pondent are remarkable neither for their novelty
nor for force, I have consented, in deference to the
wishes of several friends of Revision in your vi
cinity, o notice briefly his communications. It is
very true, as your correspondent suggests, that the
eierprihe of Revision has from the first been
warmly, often bitterly opposed. This is, however,
by no means surprising. It would be difficult to
point to a single truth, however important, that
has not encountered precisely this character of op
position. The Reformation was objected to, not so
much because it was wrong in principle, as because
it threatened to disturb the existing order of
things. Luther might have prayed and fasted to
his heart's content, if he had not attempted to dis
turb other people's prayers and fasts. Abstract
Theology was well enough; but "indulgencies"
and "masses" were practical things. They had
a definite, tangible value.
It has been very much so with the enterprise of
Revision. No one opposes the principle. That is
correct enough. But seek to embody this princi
ple, to carry it into practical execution,-and big
otry at once starts up alarmed. Sectarianism so
licitously enquires, " How will it affect me," and
then with the emphasis of an oracle, it assures us
that "although the Bible may perhaps need revi
sion, that the time is wrong-the place is wrong
the men are wrong-everything in short connected
with the present enterprise, is emphatically, out
rageously wrong !"
The objections urged by your correspondent are
very much of this character. He does not call.in
question a single organic feature of the Bible
Union. He 1oints to no defects, either in its con
stitution, its organization, or in the principles it
seeks to embody. His issues are from first to last
side Issues-questions about times, and places,
and men. Let us examine them:
First, this Revision movement "had its -origin
at the North." Now, " the North" is'doubtless a
very suspicious birth-place-a second " Nazareth"
it may be. Enlightened men are, however, accus
tomed to judge of truth more by its intrinsic char
acter than by the mere accident of Its origin.
Even in this respect, however, your correspondent
is sadly at fault. " Revision " is older by several
hundred years than the political, segment of the
Union to which he refers. Three centuries ago
Tyndale and Frith organized a " Revision Associa
tion " in England, and were burned at the stake
for their temerity. The Anti-Revisionists of that
day, like the anti-4visionists of the present day,
did not want a newBible. It was not the time, or
the place, nor were they the men to do the work.
It was a mere sectarian money-making scheme.
And like your zealous correspondent, they ex
claimed, " Away with your new Revision of the
Bible. We understand the old one well enough as
regards the plan of salvation.".
But your correspondent urges another and far
graver charge against the Bible Union:
"It is concocted," he says "alone for the pur
poose of gulling the people and making money."
Now, if such a charge can be sustained against
the Bible Union, it will certainly brand the enter
prise with lasting infamy. If It cannot be sus
tained, it will hardly improve the reputation of its.
nuthor. I regret that the "accuser of his breth
ren" did not see fit to append his name to his ac
cusation. As the case now stands, it is only the
thrust of a masked assailant. Is such a course
characteristic of the honorable Christian gentle
man ? It is true that selfish, irreligious men
sometimes excuse themselves from contributing to
our Missionary societies, our Bible societies, and
all other benevolent organizations, on the ground
that thecy arc " concocted for the purpose of gal
ling the people and making money." It is very
seldom, however, that a man can be found who
has the hardihood to say so over his own name in
print. The moral sense of thme community pro
tects these great public charities from open insult
if not from secret assault. When, therefore, this
anonymous assailant sees fit to make the above
charge over his own name. and prove it, it will be
quite time to consider its claims to public attention.
Again; seeninmgly forgetful that he has just de
clared the JBible Union to be a society concocted
alone for the purpose of " gulling the people and
making money," he assures us that it is the great
object of the Society to substitute in the new ver
sion innnerse for baptize. Now, without consider
ing thme palpable contradiction of these charges, it
mtay not be amiss to look for a moment at the ab
surdity of the latter. Its author would really
have thme world believe that a society of men, comn
p- ising some of the mocst talente 1 andl pious among
us, have not only conspired together to humbug the
world systematically, but that, they are so hopeless
ly insane as to employ thirty or forty scholars for
a dozen years, at an expense of perhlaps half a
million of dollars to make a change in the transla
ion of a single word-a change that any pirinter
can elfect in five minutes, at an expense of five
cents ! Is it. possible to conceive of a more huidie
rous specimen of unmitigated nonsense !
It would seem at first sight that an enterprise
like tlhat of the Bible Union would at once conm
mend itself to the respect and confidence of uni
versal Christendom. It Is, however, painiful to ob
serve the prejudice and opposition that in this and
former times have arraye-l themselves against a
cause so noble and a principle so plain. Revela
tion seeks no lhiding place, It fears no investiga
tion. It is not truth, but error that shrinks from
the sunlight. The man who clings to a belief
that he is unwilling to submit to the most search
ing test, confesses at once his own weakness and
the weakness of his system.
Those who favor a revision of the English scrip
tures do so from a conviction that the Bible will
bear the closest scrutiny. They have no fear of
marring the pages of God's word by dusting away
te cobwebs that obscure it. That the present
version of thme English scriptures is obscure and
inaccurate, no scholar will deny. It is almost im
possible to open a single book written by any bib
lical scholar within the past century that is not full
of evidences to this effect. Their testimony is
concurrent on this point. Says Bishop Lowth, of
the Church of pngland, speaking of a Hebrew
word that was not found in the faulty text from
which King Jamps's translators revised, " I have
ndeavored to spt this matter in a clear light, as it
is thme first praiuple (in Tsaiah's p~rophecy) of a
whole word lost out of the text, of 1ohich the read
er will find many other plain examples in the
ourse of these notes."
Dr. Adam Clarke, of thme Methodist church,
says-and his words should burn themselves into
the very heart of hearts of all who wish to be
faithful to God and man, for God will hold all to
strict accountability: " Most of the adrantages
which our mnblelievers have appeiared to have over
ertain passages of scripture, hare arisen from an
inaccurate or false translation of the termse of the
owiginal, and an appeal to this has genmeally si
enced these gainsayers." Why should not the
asses of the people be so armed with " the sword
f the Spirit, which is the word of God," that
hey may " silence gainsayers'!" He who teaches
pious mind one new truth of Jehovah's revela
tion, imbues that mind with additional power and
race; he who undertakes to veil or obscure one
pssage of the inspired word from the understand
ng of men, is a friend neither to God nor man.
But if oneonew truth of the inspired text, or ons
thus important, what must be the importance of
thou.sands, given as God -,ave them, and disrobed
of the rubbish with which man's devices have
covered them I And the united voice of all bibli
cal criticism bears testimony to the existence of
the evils we have named in King James's version,
and is equally unanimous in the declaration that
all these evils can be remedied. Let us look at
two authorities on this subject.
Conybeare and Howson, two distinguished min
isters of the Church of England, have recently
published a work entitled " The Life and Epistles
of St. Paul." It has been hailed with acclamation
everywhere, by the learned, as one of the noblest
monuments of biblical criticism ever erected by
learning. The highest authorities in periodical
criticism among Presbyterians and Episcopalians
have bestowed upon the work the warmest appro
bation, and the authors deserve the lasting grati
tude of all scholars for the floods of light they
have thrown upon the New Testament. In a vast
number of instances, they conclusively establish
the existence of the very faulty condition of the
text used by King James's translators, and in
many other instances show the bad 'use made of
the text that was in the hands of those translators.
Thus, for an example, in 2d Corinthians xi. 25,
Conybeare and Howson say: "The true meaning
is lost in the authorized version, and is similarly
lost in the Sermon on the Mount, Mathew vii. 25,
27." In Paul's discourse at Antioch, in Pisidia, a
metaphor more beautiful than anything in Demos
thenes or Cicero, is entirely lost In the authorized
version. Again, these authors, on Roman iii. 25,
after giving the Greek text, say: " The mistrans
lation which is in ti authorized version entirely
alters the meaning." These are but specimens
of many hundreds of such instances given by these
renowned biblical scholars.
Again, the Religious Tract Society of England,
composed of what are called evangelical sects,
established 1799, have recently produced an " An
notated Paragraph Bible," which should command
the favor of the English world. It is not saying
too much to say, that if such a Bible had been in
the hands of the English race one hundred years
ago, Christianity would have been immensely ad
vanced over the world, and in the hearts and prac
tices of myriads, beyond what it is. The increa
sing knowledge of the English people in Bible mat
ters demanded a Bible worthy of the text of in
spiration; and the "Religious Tract Society"
have furnished one, for which they deserve the
highest honor. That society makes a multitude
of improved versions in lieu of the faulty ones of
King James's work. A great number of those
improved revisions are invaluable, and will prove
a precious boon to all who love the pure light of
Perbaps I shall be pardoned for noting a few of
the many' blunders in King James's version.
First, we have direct contradictions. Now in the
very nature of things, it is impossible that the Ho
ly Spirit can contradict himself: and in the origi
nal there is no discrepancy.
