I Did This for Thee.
I cave my. life for thee
My precious blood I shed,
That thou might'st ransomed be,
And quickened? from the dead ;
I gave my life for thee
Wh^t hast thou dorie for me?
I spent long years for thee,
In weariness and woe,
That an eternity
Of joy thou mightcst know ;
I spent long years for thee
Hast thou spent one for me?
My Father's home of light,
$Iy rainbow circled throne,
I left for earthly night,
For wandering sad and lone ;
I left it all for thee
Hast thou left aught for me?
I suffered much for thee- ' .
More than thy tongue caa tell,
Of bitterest agony,
To rescue thee from hell :
I suffered much for thee
What canst thou bear for me?
And I have brought to thee,
Down fron*'fliy home above,
Salvation full and free
My pardon and my love ;
n Great gilts I brought to thee- .
What hast thou brought for me?
Oh ! let thy lifo be given,
Thy years for him be spent
World-fettdrs.all be riven.
And joy with suffering blent:
Bring thou thy worthless all
Follow thy Saviour's call.

.tiratz Brown's Letter of Accep
ST. LOUIS, June 1.-In reply* to a
notification of his nomination as vice
President by the Cincinnati Conven
tion Governor Brown makes the follow
ing response :
EXECUTIVE OFFICE, )
JEFFERSON CITY, May 31 1872. J
GENTLEMEN-Your letter advising
me of the action.of the Liberal Re
publican Cou v??fibn at Cincinnati has
been receiyed, and I return through
you my acknowledgment of the hon
or which has been conferrer! upon
me. I accept the nomination as a
candidate for Vice President, and en
dorse most cordially, the resolutions
setting forth the principle? on which
this appeal is made to the.whole peo
ple ol the United States. A century
is closing upon our experience of Re
publican government, and while that
lapse ot time has .vitnessed a gr at
expansion ol our free institut-ions, yet
it has not been without illustration j
als?'of grave' dangers to the s:ability j
of such a system. Of th'se success
fully encountered it is needless to \
speak. Ol' those which remain to
menace us the most threatening, are
provided against, as I firm y believe,
in the wisc and pacific measures pro
posed by yonr plat form, lt has come
to be the pru-lice of those elcva^-H
to thc positions of national au tho)
to re^nrd the public service ii":
public trust,ljur oiry mean;
..... $W?MV.I.U\ 'Piis y>.Stilts ''? ''C1'
tuting.; mete party orgunixatic
thc government itself, which im
all independent IhoirglU:, enabb
few to rule the meny, and make
sonai allegiance the road to favor. It
requires little forecast to perceive
that this will wreck our lil cities un
less lhere be interpo ed a timely re
form ot the Administration i'roiu the
highest to thc low'St Station, ..hi oj
sha!] not only forbidttbuses, but like*- j
wise take away the incentive to their !
practice. Wearied with thc conten
tions thai aro carried on iii the ava
rice of spoils, the country demands re
pose, resents the eifert of officials io I
dragoon it again into partisan hostil
ities, and will zealously sustain any
movement promising a sure deliver
ance. Of the perils which have been
connected with the war it is safe to
say thaPthose are now to be feai ed
which come of an abuse of victory
into permanent estrangement, The
Union is fortified by more power than
ever before, and it remain's an imp? r
atiye duty, to cement our nationality
by reconciliation. At the North a
widespread sympathy is aroused in
behalt, of those States of the South
which, long after the termination of
resistance to rightful Federal author
ity, are still plundered under the
guise of loyalty, and tyrannized over
in the name of freedom. Along with
this feeling is present, too, the recog
nition that in complete amnesty alone
ann be found the hope of any return
to constitutional government as of
-old, O'-any development of a more
enduring rfnity and broader national
i life in the future. Amnesty, howev
er, to be efficacious, must be real, not
nominal, not evasive, but must carry
along with it equal rigbys as well as
[equal protection to all. For the re
moval of disabilities as to some, with
enforcemei t as to others, leaves room
for the suspicion that pardon is meas
ured by political gain, and especially
will such preferred clemency be fu
tile in the presence bf a renewed at
tempt* ai prolonging a suspension of
rhe iidlras corpu?, in the persistent
resort to martial rather than to civil
law, in upholding those agencies used
to alienate the races, where "Concord
is most essential, mid in preparing
another elab?rale campaign o'n a ba
sis of dead issues ai d arbitrary in-"
tervention. All will rightly credit
such conduct as but a u?oekery of
amnesty and demand an administra
tion which can give a better waorant j
ot honesty iii the great w<brk of re
construction and reform. The array
of sectional interests of a public so
wide sprean as ours is never entirely
safe from >evious conflicts. These be
come stil[ more daugerous.wtien com
plicated with questions jf taxation
where unequal burthens are believed
to be impo-ed on one part at the ex
pen-e ot another part. It was ti bold
as well as admirable policy in thc
interest of present as well as future
tranquility to withdraw thu decision
of industrial nnd revenue matters
j from the usual arbitration of an Elec
toral College, oho?en with a single
animating purpose of party ascen
dency, and refer them for a more
direct popular expression to ea h
Congressional- District. Instead of
being muzzled by some evasive de
clarat'ou. the country is theieby in- j
vited to its-frankest utterances, and
sections which would revolt at being
denied a voice out of deference to
other success would be content to ac
quiesce in a general judgment hon
estly elicited. If' local government
be, as it .undoubtedly is, th. most
vital principle of our institutions,
much advance will be made towafds
re-establishing it by enabling the
people to pas's upon'questions so near
ly affecting their well being' dispas
sionately through their local repre
sentation. The precipitancy which
would force a controlling declaration
on tax or tariff through a Presiden
tial candidacy in only a disguised
form of centralization, involving haz
ardous reaches of executive influence.
The conclusion will be much more
impartially determined, and with less
disturbance- to trade and finance by
appealing to the most truthlul and
diversified local expression Indus
trial issues can be thi'S likewise eman
cipated from the power of great mo
nopolies, each canvass made to deter
mine its own specific instructions, and
each representative held to fidelity
toward his immediate constituents.
These are the most prominent fea
tures of that general concert of ac
tion which proposes to replace the
present Administration by one more
iii sympathy with the aspirations of
the masses of our contrymen. Of
course such concert cannot be attain
ed by thrusting our minot past dif
ferences into the foreground, and it
will be for the people- to determine
whether these objects are of such
magnitude and present urgency as to
justify them in deferring other ad-'
justments until the country shall be
first restored to a free suffrage, unin
fluenced by official dictation, and ours
become in fact a, free republic, releas
ed from apprehension "ol a central
domination. Without referring in
detail to the various other pr?-posi
tions, embraced in the r?solutions
of the Convention, but seeing how
the?e all contemplate a restoration of
the power to the people, peace to th
nation, purity to the Government,
that they condemn the attempt to
establish an ascendancy of military
over civil rule, and affirm with e x
plicitness the maintenance of equal
freedom to all citizens irrespective of
race, previous condition or pending
disabilities, I have only to pledge
again my sincere co-operation.
Yours, E. GRATZ BROWN. ?

At noon, yesterday, a despatch was
received at the Convent of the Sisters
of Mercy in this city,.!non New York,
announcing .the sa>! intelligence of the
death of this mucii esteemed gentle
man and levered pastor, t?nt a few
days ago he ventured upon his last
journey, to seek recovery pf fail

phere; but lus strength continued to
Jail, and now he is among the dead.

pitied his seVeiity-iiith year when he
med. Auer leaving his native coiui
LIV, ?n 1827, he first ?anded in Uan
.uia, which he was .-oin forced to
leave un account cf impaired health
caused liv the extreme riqor ol' that
climate, and flu a thence came to
Charleston about the close the
year LS2V, ami, entering the seminary
ol' Bishop England, in this- ejty, fin
ish-id h:s ecclesiastical course, and
was, in l&il, un; ced by the distin
guished prelate iv Lu had prepared
and perfected him lor the pinsihood.
His first mission was to Columbus,
Georgia, which was then included in
this diocese ; . lrom thence he was
transferred to Cultimbia and Edge
field, South Carolina, where for years
he discharged the duties of pastor.
lu this latter missiou'he was engaged
and faithfully' served until war be
came, fiagr.-^t in 1862. It was while
he was in chai g ? of this misiion that
he erected the beautiful granite church
which now adorns th< village of
Edgefield, raised at a cost of over
$3U,000, which he gathered together
in small sums from his friends in ev
ery part of the country. His deter
mination in prosecuting this, work
was indomitable, and his zeal and en
ergy were only equaled by the suc
cess which crowned his Undertaking.
In this, and other works of charity,
he was occupied during the whole o
his active life.
At the close of the war, upon his
return to. Chai lesion, he was appoint
ed by the Ht. Kev. Bishop Lynch,
Vicar-General < f the Diocese ol South
Carolina, and this dignity, with which
h?' was then invested, he retained tb
the day of his death. The last two
years ul his life he chiefly devoted
outside "t the charge of his ?spiritual
duties-to the erection of a worthy"
edifice of Catholic worship, on Sulli
van's Island, suitable to the growing
population and importance of thia
s- a-side summer resort. ?
Father Bermingham was widely
known throughout the State, and
some of hfe best friends and advisers
were members of the Protestant re
ligion. He was an energeticand use
ful citizen, giving ?neouragement by I
word aud act to every measure insti
ll! tod for the public goofior public
improvement. He was thoroughly
naturalized in a.U his affections and
his devotion to the State ami people'
who sustained him throughout forty
.Vectra of his life. In farting with
him, the zealous pastor the devoted
Vioar, the benefactor o' the poor and
th religions, the good^itizen, we can
only " bid fair peacJ to his sable I
shroud, and say" hal I farewell!"

BRUSHY CHEEK, ?une 1,1872.
'Mr. Editor-Dec". &r : An acci
dent occurred on lastTturfcxky even
ing, at MT. Johnson S Mills, on Brush J
Creek, ten miles west oi G eenvilic
in Anderson County,4 of the most se
rious and f^tal character.
Four little boys,' returning home
from-school, went into tae mill pond
bathing, and were all dnwned. There
, was no person present t) direct, as
sist or save them. The parents were
first alarmed by their net returning
home at the usual hour and follow
ing the path to the sdiopl house,
their DOOKS and clothingwere found
at the foot-log over the sreain. The
water was immediately drawn off,
and the lifeless remainsDf the four
little boys were ,found, vithin a few
feet.of each other, in ^tfe bottom of
the stream. Two were ;he sons of
Mr. Joel Ellison, one tb son of Mr.
Thos. Couoh, and one . th son of Mr.
Sidney Couch. These f mi lies live
close to each other, an t#ie little
boys were on the best trms, going
to school and returning tgether.
Thus, in a mtment, aa-thesepar
ents bereaved and overwelmed with
sorrow. Mr. Sidney Cach has lost
his only son, a little spightly boy
of eight summers,* who ms his fath
er's staff and guide; fo.he it was
who directed his fathcB f otsteps
aud lead him by the hnd.in his
'blindness. The two .Irle Ellison
boys and Thos. Couch's an, were in
attendance at "Sabbath Saool, at St.
Paul's, on " last Sunday. We little
thought then that they \*re so' soon
to bc taken away from oumiidst to n
happier and better world.

Ex-Senator Buckalow, i n his speech

?. My ideas o? the duties of the gov

is to be the magistrate of the entire

I ilemen, I believe there is a disposi

monwealth to get a little beyond
and outside of that circle ol' intense
party passion whicn raged over this
country dunng trie war aiid during
the first years after the conclusion 01
the war. Our people .are beginning
to uuderstand that there are many
matters, and those of the greatest
significance, upon, which gentlemen
ot intelligence ' and liberal opinion
can heartily unite. to subserve and
promote those purposes for which po
litical society was organized. Nuw
in view of the general disposition to
have reform introduced into your
?State and into our national govern

up candidates for whom and around
whom public confidence can gather,
we are entitled to appeal to men ot
all parties and shades of opinion to

departure which shall be one of puri

Horace Greeley as a t'reseut
Perhaps no circumstance could more
fittingly illustrate the difference be
tween'the character of Mr. Greeley
nnd thc present- incumbent of the
White .House than the following sto
ry, the truth of which is vouched for
by Mr. John Sumner, a hatter, doing
business in Myrtle avenue. Brooklyn,

In 1851; the hatters employed by
Mr. Geniu, the Broadway hatter.

refused, started an independent, hat

principle, while Mr. Genin i-uiplojed

Abbeville County. Ami Gordon, n ;
colored woman, has "lived, laborad .
and loved," for about 123 years. She

Born during the revolutionary war,
she has seen the country un?Vr tire

the horrors ol- civil war no less than

A i>E.4i> MIS?E-A Mr. Gilchrist,
who live?' near .'Como,. Mississippi,
luckily fell into a fortune lately in a
romantic sort of way. Hrs windfall,
however, may be legally claimed from
him by the heirs of one Satterwhite.
The old Satterwhite, who was a miser
and died ina lunatic asylum, lived in
a log shanty which formed the kitch
en to Mr. GJchrist's house. It was
built forty year's ago, and occupied j
i by Satterwhite, and. it is said ?by ,
! some of "he o.d citizens who remem
ber him, that r. was one of the idiosyn- ?
cracie- of his constitution to eon' eal
his money by hiding it about the
walls or in the cracks or other out of
the way places, and that in 1846 he
became so iuuci deranged that his
. friends carried him back to South
Carolina, and that they believed
there was a large sum of money con
cealed about tin pi>-mi.-es, vMi val
uable papers, bj Satterwhite, aaa,
portion of his moDey was missing;
but the maller passed off and nothing
has been ?aid about, tho .fact, as Sat
terwhite died without revealing ary
thing in connection with the io6l
treas u e. Last week Mr. Gilchrist,
while tea. ing down tne old ki-'chsn,
found au immense pile of money u*i
der the hearth-there is no telling
how much. John H. Wnite, of Mem
phis, is a grand-son ol the old miser,
and is taking steps towards'the re
