Thc New Party~l?ettcr from Mr.
Grucshccli, ol" Ohio.
ClNClXXATI, May 5,1S73.
MY DEAS SIR: I Haw your letter of
April 23, and should have answered it
sooner, and have no sufficient apology for
not doing so. Permit me lo say that the
reply I have to make to it is not tor pub
lication, but personal to yourself and
those afc whose suggestion you lui ve writ
ten. I believe the historical Democratic
organization is spoiled. Blundering <on
stantly during the last ten years, and
shattered by many def ats, it surrenden d
finally at the last Presidential election. It
cannot recall that surrender, or the con
cessions then made, and it hus no longer
strength enough for victory in this ex
tremity;. It \vill likewise lay aside tin
old organization and enter into a new one.
The organization should accept the re
suits of the war, as was done at Balti
more, and it should accept them in good
faith, and so as to command the confidence
of the people. Thc recognition should be
something more than a recast of the old
one. There should be no exclusiveness
about it, nor should it be merely Demo
cratic. It should be made up o'f present
Democrats, and of all Republicans who are
offended bv the policy and tendency of the
present Administration. The new organ
ization should be the joint work of Demo
crats and Republicans, and both should
be equally at home in it-neither the
guest of the other. You ask. what should
be its name? Call it the Liberal Demo
cracy ; that will mean the free, unselfish
government of the people : and now, tis
to its doctrine or principles, you ask in
this connection how the question of ne
gro suffrage shonld be .?treated? That
question is no longer before us. Negro
suffrage is thc bloody consummation of
?. great war, and nothing short of war can
undo it in our day. In my opinion, it will
endure in this Government as long as gen
eral suffrage. I comprehend the objec
tions to it, and think it was granted too
scon to that part of our population re
cently emancipated. All should make some
preparation for this day. We deny suf
irage to the foreigner for a time, in order
that he may prepare for it, and we have
schools for all, on the theory that-all should
prepare for it; but it is granted, and it
cimnt be recalled ; nor do I think it wise,
i i such a Government as' this, to keep
. ?immanently so large a part of our people
? i an inferior, degraded condition. Sla
verv was always danger.
To hold this"population, now free, in a
degraded condition, would be a greater
d inger and always trouble to us. Say wt
have adopted a doubtful policy; it is anne ;
I accept it. and on all such questions ad
mitted to be of doubtful expediency, I
shall for the remainder of my life, if per
chance I must, ever strive at least to be
tolerant, generous and humane, rely for
goo?l voting as much upon the heart a>
upon the head. I concur in what els
you suggest The new organization should
oppose all forms of monopoly. This is too
plain to need argument. Monopolies are
an outrage and an offence against the
people. Thc new organization should op
pose centralization, and it should advo
cate hoi?e government in ail its local af
i'uirs, and to the utmost extent that it is
practicable. You cannot keen a people
tree, sturdy and intelligent without home
' government : it is home government that
trains us, teaches us reliance and devel?les
manliness. Take it away, and the free
man disappears. Centralize power at
Washington, and we are transferred tc
outside management. No longer govern
ing ourselves, wc must be governed. De
pending upon Washington, we lose out
sell'dependence, and the free citizen soon
degenerates into a mere subject, whose
whole duty it is to obey the law, and whose
only desire it is to be amused in idleness.
You refer me also to the question of free
trade. The new organization should make
it one of its cardinal dc.:, -ines. There
should be no equivocation ?,r double mean
ing about this. A prohibitory tariff is in
Slain contradiction to ;he character ot our
fovernment. We are all equal in rights,
privileges and immunities. There should
be no descrimination, no favoritism, no
partialities,personal orfinancial ; andas
a commercial policy, a prohibitory tariff
is behind the age-almost a barbarism
and belongs to the times when nations
were walled and commerce without winga
I believe I have substantially answered
your letter. The new organization may
properlv antagonize the party now ad"
ministering our affairs at almost even
point. While ibises so. it should not un
dertake to be everything at once, or push
reform without sume regard to imm?diat?'
Changes that shock by their abrupt
ness, are not always just or fair. We
should never forget sound principles, and
we should move toward them constantly,
surely and steadily, but sometimes grad
ually. I don't believe in daily revolution,
or violent derangement of public affairs.
Let me suggest a doctrine to waich you
have not referred : I mean the djctrine o:
strict construction- of the Constitution.
Have yen considered what a certain pre-1
vent ive of misgovernment maybe found
in the tait hud application of this doctrine'
1 believe such an application of ii would
correct almost every jutbhc evil of which
we complain. It ia worth your while to
test its reach -and efficacy, and what
splendid doctrine it is tor such a Govern
ment as ours; how it exalts the individu,
al man, and how i; subordinates iic Gov
eminent. It may letter thc Government
now and then, but never the citizen. H<
always remains uppermost, and mast?
I am not a politician; or competent lo ad
vise, but if you should make such a mov<
ment as you propose, it should bc con
ducted so as to give the strongest assur
ance that it sought reform ana rot place.
I am a Democrat, but 1 should be very
glad to see tho Democracy move out of its
old organization into a new one. Yoi
will not succeed unless they do it. M:i_
be they will refuse, and prefer to tarn
where they are for the balance of the cen
tury, and until they eau rix the meaning
of the resolutions of '98 ; if so, I suppose
I shall tarry with them. After all, 1 li Ic ?
the old political homestead. I confess
is somewhat dilapidated. There are n<
banners upon its wails, and victoriens
shoutings are no longer heard within ; but
it is a home still, and I shall not leave it
until it is polled down.
Thc Modoc Court-Martial.
The Washington Chronicle says: "Tie
war department, now that its" supreme
head is absent, and thc " heels bf basin B
revolve 'slow and unsteady,' is timid in
furnishing important news to th? press
It states, and that somewhat cxplicity
that thc result of tin Modoc court-mar
tial bas not yet officially reached its clue
bureau, the adjutant-general's office; hu:
ij cannot deny the fact that unofficial ad
vices have been received, and that by at
officer of the department, in winch ? full
and detailed foreshadowing is given of
the fate of the Modoc murderers. Th?
are to be shot one. and all. There is n
mistake about Jthis. Thc papers have yet
to go ?iirough tho secretary bf war lo thc
? Presidetrwbr iii-i action in the premises,
(?enera! Jeff C. Davis earnestly hop. s
that tho apiiioval of the Executive will
iupplement the findings of the court, and
the stab urn nt is hi ide that the eyes of the
whole- Pacific coast will be directed to the
action taken by thc President in the mat
A dispatch from thc Associated Press
agent at Washington1 confirms the state
ment that no official report has been re
ceived, as follows : " The findings of the
military commission in the case of the
Modoc indians recently tried, have not
yet been received at the war deportment.
'i'he proceedings, after being reviewed by
G nerd Schofield, will be forwarded to
Judge Advocate Genera] Holt, who will
examine the testimony and findings and
transmit, them to the secretary of war and
the President for approval before the sen
tence can be executed."
?&* Habits of scorn and contempt are
based in and grow out of an inordinate
self-righteousness-the " holi er?than
thou" principle. It is very far removed
from that humility which distrusts its
own powers and hence seeks alliance
with a power above, and so by the ope
rations of a self-righteous instinct, it
gravitates toward a coalescing with the
very evil which at the outset it affected
to scorn and treat with contempt.
The loyal papers of course blow lustily
over the President's clemency to the Ku
Klux prisoners of South Carolina as evi
denced by his recent interview with Gen
end Kershaw and his associ?tes and the
letter of the Attorney General. Even
some Southern papers find much cause for
gratitude in the President's determination
to open the gates of thc Albany peniten
tiary. For ourselves, w-3 can discover in
it nothing which the world has not here
tofore suspected, viz: that Gcueral Grunt
knows full web that these prisoners were
wrongfully and illegally convicted and
punished, and that he now wishes to make
tardy and imperfect reparation for the in
jury which he has done and the outrage
which he has sanctioned. If these men
are really guilty of thc horrible crime?
with which they were charged, men like
General Kershaw and his associates would
never have asked for their release, and
no faithful and honest Executive would
have granted them pardon. If these men
are the murderers and marauders which
Judge Bond's Court declared them to be,
in what way are they more deserving of
executive clemency now than they were
at the time of their conviction. It cannot
be urged that-their crimes are political
offenses, whicti come within the discretion
of the Chief Magistrate, for this state
ment is not true. These pardons can not
be compared to the pardons granted State
prisoners .-by the monarchs of the old
world, for the cases are not at all analo
sous. Assassination and robbery are not
State offenses in any sense of the term.
Xor? after commission, do they deserve
pardon except under certain peculiar cir
cumstances. "Why then should these
terrible criminals experience the Presi
dent's mercy ? The -Attorney General says
because the Ku Klux Klan has been dis
banded and there is nothing now to fear
from its treasonable designs. When did
this disbandment occur? Wesaythatit
there ever was any such organization in
the South it ceased to exist some time
prior to the last Presidential election,
and this fact was as well known to the
Attoney General then as it is now. We
say that this whole persecution of so-call
ed Ku-Klux was a political trick-cruel
as it was base-used for the purpose of
strengthening the Radical party and se
curing the second election of Gen. Grant.
We say that the Administration declared
martial law in South Carolina without
good cause ; that the State, or portions ol'
it, was harried by United States dragoons
as if in time of war; that men were drag
ged from their beds at dead of night with
out lawful warrant or authority ; that wo
men and children were maltreated atul in
suited; that.so-called judicial tribunals
were established and innocent pattie.
brought to trial before packed juries and
courts organized to convict; that men
who had committed no offense, whpse sole
crime was their political belief, were sent
by scores to rot m Northern dungeons, or
else forced to seek safety in "exile. We
say that these things, were done in accor
dance with a preconceived and pre arrang
ed plan of the leaders of the Republican
party; that they were done in order to
divert the fight last Fall from real to false
issues ; to mislead the masses of the
Nerta: to cause them to believe our peo
ple on the eve of a new "Rebellion;" to
inflame them against theSouthern whites .
to rally them to the support of the Re
publican nominees as the only means of
averting another civil war,; to secure the
re-election of General Grant to the*Presi
dency. Tlie . President's " mercy'' is a
virtual acknowledgment cf his guilt. He
seizes a flimsy pretext for releasing the
victims of his party's perfidy, and does at
this late day what he should havi done a
year or more ago.-Chronicle & Sentinel.

[SPECIAL TO CHRONICLE & SENTINEL.]
COLUMBIA, S. C., August 2.
The n.igrations of the three Judges of
the Supreme Court-Moses, Willard and
Wright-taken in connection with the fa
mous suit brought by Morton, Bliss & Co.,
and other holders ol' South Carolina bonds,
have caused another flutter in the Radical
ranks. The black and tan don't under
stand the dodging. It was generally be
lieved that as the Judges had until No
vember loth, to render their decision, and
the Legislature would have a session a
few days thc-reatter. the Court would, by
some hocus pocus arrangement, dodg" (In
responsibility of rendering a decision in
this contention between the honest and
dishonest in the Republican rank?. But
recent movements contradict such suppo
sition. The negro Judge, Wright, has
suddenly appeared in town from his Sum
mer retreat on the hanks of the Susque
hanna in Pennsylvania. He was evident
ly sent for. Chief Justice Moses slips in
ar.d out of the city in a very quiet and
brief manner. The indications are that a
decision will be rendered next week. While
no intimation of its import has been re
ceived direct from the Court or made pub
lic, yet it can very safely be said that
there will be no tax levy ordered to pay
the interest on the bonds until the legal
and illegal issues are mad^ known and sep
arated. Another cause similar to that of
Morton, Bliss ? Co., will follow any de
cision in favor ol the Ring, and should th?'
Comptroller-General order a levy it will
hardly be undf-r way before the Legisla
ture would assemble and commence agita
ting repudiation. The leading Republican
Senators and Representatives boldly re
commend the scaling and funding of the
whole State debt, legal and illegal" Moses
pay Certificates and all. at say fifty cents
on the dollar for that portion considered
valid, and thirty cents for tim doubtful.
Certain it is the leading men of all classes
have no idea of paying any interest tax
until after the Legislature "meets. This,
notwithstanding the Comptroller-General
is reported to have weakened and signified
Iiis intention to make the levy should the
mandamus be granted, popular indigna
tion, though, will prevent the Court from
issuing thc mandamus.
The Lien Law.
Tb.e Clarendon Press urges thc repeal
of tho lien law by the General Assembly.
It says :
We have come to tho conclusion, from
see.ng its practical workings the present
year, that the repeal of the lien law i.
imperatively demanded as one of the first
acts of the Legislature. Unquestionably
.i good deal of suffering will bo entailed
upon a large portion of the agricultural
masses fora time, by the failure io get

Tram Ways or Wooden Railroads, just

Ca. R. R. Company, may interest your

Tram Ways,--Or Wooden Railroads.
The importance of tram ways, or wood
en Railroads, as an economical mode of
transportation, is scarcely yet well un
derstood. Our country is very much cut
up by expensive Railroads, ruinously
competinir with each other for through
freight. We now require feeders for these
roads; short, inexpensive ones, where
it would be ruinous to attempt a regular
R iii road.
The narrow gauge and tram way have
both been recommended for this pur
pose; each having its advantages and
disadvantages. Thc former is the moro
expensive, and requires besides, special
cars; and in the transaction of business,
bulk must bo broken in order to transfer
freight to cars of the main line. This is
always attended with expense and loss of
time, and more or less damage to goods,
and should if possible be avoided. It is
a great objection to these roads, and is
obviated by the use ol' tram ways upon
which the ordinary Railroad cars can be
run at a moderato speed ; quite sufficient
however for 9hort roads and local pur
poses, where the great speed of compe
ting linea is not necessary. Engines are
now being made specially adapted to
f?ese roads, being much lighter, and
having broader wheels and deeper flan
ges, and costing of course much less than
the ordinary engines of our Railroads.
The broad wheels having a greator bear
ing upon the timber are not so destruc
tive of the track ; and the deeper flanges
are an additional security upon much
worn wooden rails.
Below will be found an approximate
estimate ol' tho cost of a tram way. This
of course will vary witJi the ditficuilics
of preparing the road bod. and with other
causes incident to different localities.
After tlie second year lt would be safe
to estimate in the cost of Maintenance of
Way, the renewal of at least one-third to
one half the stringers per annum ; and
probably one-fifth of tho cross ties. This
should and need never bc moro than 12
to 15 miles per hour; and tho schedule
should be so regulated as to allow time
for trains to stop for freight or passengers
upon any part ol' the road, so as to alford
every possible inducement to the coun
try people to use thc trains. They will
soon learn io think them indispensable.

Mu. JEDITOK:-I dropped you a few
lines from Charlottelast Monday, giving
a description of crops, Ac., on thc C. C.
& A. ll. lt.
On Tuesday morning wo took the
"Carolina Central Railroad," via Lin
colnton, to.Buflalo Station, fifty miles,
from thence four miles to the Cleveland
Mineral Springs. The crops upon this
Road were much better, the corn gi n
orally very good. Just before reaching
Lincolnton saw a large field planted in
tobacco, which I thought was rather
small, but tho Superintendent of thc
Lincolnton Tobacco Manufactory, who
was in the cars, assured me that it would
make one cutting of fine tobacco. He
also informed me that ther9 was consid
?rable tobacco raised in that section, and
manufactured ar Lincolnton. He gave
mo an ounce plug as a sample of their
best, which I assure you had tbe ap
pearance of being as fine tobacco as any
man would desire to chew.
We found about fifty persons at the
Springs, including children and servants.
There had been more, but at a watering
place there is a continual changing in
numbers, some coming, and others
There are three mineral Springs at
Cleveland, one White Sulphur, one Red
Sulphur and one Iron. The first and
last named are very strong; tho white
sulphur leaves a white sediment upon
the rocks over which it passes from tho
spring for several feet, which is very
hard to remove, but which, I believe, is
done every morning. Tho water when
drunk a*, the spring is delightfully cool,
anq to mo very pleasant. I oould hardly
satisfy mjrself with drinking.
For the accommodation of Boarders
there is a large brick building, three sto
ries high, with a wide piazza to each
floor, the whole length-capacity, I sup
pose, of holding about one hundred per

high, with ..everal rooms in them.

The Caterpillar Poison.
Down in south-West Georgia tlie plan
ters are saving their cotton from the dep
redation of tho caterpillar by sprinkling
over the cotton a new compound known
as "Royall's Caterpillar Destroyer,"
which is said to bo certain in its effect,
and can be applied with but little cost oi
labor. The Albany Hews, noticing thc
ero]) prospects, says:
From reliable information received
from planters, weare unable to make a
more favorable report than that ol'last
week. The few live, energetic, enter
prising men who have resorted to thc
"Dostroyer," report that is it no longer
an experiment, but a complete ?MC
cern, it kills tho worm, and retains its
preventive elements fur certainly twelve
days. Where it has been used, there is
therefore no danger of caterpillar before
thu 10th, or 12th inst. After that it will
take full twenty:one days for a rally in
sufficient force to do much damage,
which will be too late to injure the crop.
.Just now the second crop is webbing,
and while iii that state tlie unobservant
and inexperienced are apt lo "lay tho
nattering unction to their souls" that tho
insidious insect has disappeared. Hence,
those who are cajoled into fancied secu
rity refuse to use thc poison, and, wc
fear, will wake from their dream, only
when it is too late.
Tho crop is well fruited, and is contin
liing to fruit mure rapidly than any
season for many years. Nothing but
thu caterpillar can now provont the ma
turing or a large crop.

and the railroads. All tho papers from
that section are lilied witii proceedings
of meetings, editorials, communications
and speeches. Tho agricultural class is
thoroughly organized by means of the
granges, and being largely in the ma
jori ty in the States named, as well as in
all the Western and Southern States, it
becomes a "question of considerable im
portance what it will do regarding na
tional politics. Tho organs and' manag
ing men of both existing political pin
ties have benn volunteering much advice
to tho rt Grangers." It is generally be
lieved that most of these Grangers are
Republicans. The question arises wheth
er they will endeavor to reform that par
ty, whether they will join the free trade
wing of the Democratic party or the
small Liberal Republican party, form a
new party for themselves' and all other
reformers, or abstain altogether from
politics, which would seem to be the
?viser course. The control of politics by
nen of any particular occupation or
.lass we think wrong in theory and in
urious in practice, albeit they have thc
.ntiro confidence of the commuuity for
iobriety, honesty and judgment. j

Sights and Sounds From M.- Window
BY S. A. IM
Adown the rowfeof glinting corn,
Whoso beryl Hades th'Mmisllingkeop,
At every pernio zephyr's voiee,
We see Lim bcinnysqiurrel le?;p;
The kernels tempt his dainty taste,
As like frosh'pearls from out the sea
They sparkle with a liquid gleam,
From out their emerald sheathing (Vee.
Beneath the tangled thickets shade,
Bob-white is piping loud and shrill ;
His meal Of luscious lu rries made,
With Rice his quickened ?mises thrill.
Like some lair termagant, I wean,
The jay-bird screams with vicious lung,
Who, nettled if thejr lords bc late, '
Rantwith thecyclono's frenzied tongue.
Perched on the woodbine o'er the thatch,
The little tawny, frisky wren,
With side-long glance peeps 'neath the
Wherein her cozy nest is seen.
Five little eggs, like opals flecked,
With specs of bronze, lie snug within ;
Or cuddling close thc downy brood
Beneath the canopy of green.
Along the meadow, near the stream,
The lazy kins are wending home,
While stands the milk-maid at tho gate,
Musing of pails of snowy foam.
Thc hens are picking up the oats,
Around the stall where Dobbin feeds,
wfiile standingjiear the plow-boy looks
With critic's eye upon his reeds.
For Saturday isiclose at hand,
And 'neath tho old mill's crumbling
Thc tempting trout dart here and there,
With speckled coat and ruddy gills.
Now sluggishly;* crane flies by,
Tho hot rays shimmering from its
Wliile from the honeysuckle's cups
Thc droning heo thc honey brings.
Along tho arbor's-trellisod length,
Beneath the roof of emerald sheen,
The amethyst] nc cluste rs hang,
An ! ..'.i':..-.-?'ni guillen tendril* cling.
Tile peach i?- venneil cheek unveils,
Tim pear its luscious bosom turns,
And nature with a lavish hand
Puers tributo ?rom her silver urns.
A misuse creeps slyly from the wall,
Its eves like liny sparks of ?ire;
A hornet ( ?reles round ?ny head.
Breathing in tones of fiercest ire;
A hiHiiiidng-bircl with glittering-crest,
And bosom of empurpled filow,
Seeks nectar from thc lily's depths
Its chalice of encrusted snow.
These beauteous scenes and sounds are
All glory he to Uini who gives !
From crystal censers wafting near,
A fragrant incense tills our lives
Adowa thc ru>hingstream of time,
The sum mer plies her gi'Iden oars;
Her rich flotilla set . her sails
For Autumn with her bounteous stores.

The editor of the Bo.it ni Advertiser,
who, sometime ago, was unremitting hi
his hatred ol' tho South, has learned the
real situation of affairs, and now writes
as follows :
It is impossible for Northern people to
understand the terrible corruption at thc
South, which is still kept alive by a care
less or designed uso ol' the patronage and
political influence at Washington. We
have no organized society. Tho great
educational, financial, commercial and
political interests of the State are entrust
ed to common Held hauds of the South
and unprincipled adventurers from the
North ! Can you wonder that these peo
ple desire to IV?.-.! themselves of this ty
ranny and corruption ? Such a stateof
tiling-is contrary, to nature. God's laws
and ail tue teachings and wisdom of man
kind. Such lioverninents are the most
grotesque travesties; tivy command no
respect fri HU bbwflL.or white; they are a
scandalous disgrace to thom ami to us.
And does it help us of thc North in any
way to have a lot of men, thu natural
product ol' this condition of things. s? nr

Karly on Thursday morning thc
Rev. James 0'liara, of St. Patrick's
Catholic Church, in Augusta, died from
a sudden attack of inflammation of tho
Thc Radical Governor ol Sooth Caro
Moat Southern men, where they, turn
Radicals for pav, are . satisfied with the
pecuniary emoluments derived therefrom.
Hut it seems that Gov. Moses, not only
lakes the mopey, but uses his position to
entrap the yoong and nnsnsfM?etingldaugh
Icis of his subjects, (ves, sujets, that'd
the right'word,) that h?^f?fcrht gratify his
beastly passion. The following extract'
is from the Colletou Gazette, a strictly
Republican journal, edited by Geo. F,
Mc I nt vre.: i
What will the popular feeling bc when
t it is made generally' known that the Gov
I crnor of this State'has persons employed
for no other purpose than to act as pro
curers, inveigle into his meshes and den
voling girls of every description, r.gard
lesa of thar innocence, and who, when
once in his possession, never go forth from'
him except as poor tainted beings, to be
come in time, if not immediately, misera
ble and ruined outcasts.
Then follows in the same paper, an ac
count of the fiendish manner in which the
Governor and his agents enticed a beauti
ful girl, some fourteen or fifteen years of
age, to his harem, and accomplished her
ruin. Alas! poor South Carolina. We
thought it was bad enough'when a negro
was sent to the United States Congress
where the State was once represented by
Calhoun, McDuffie, eec, but we.believe it
is worse to have this brute, Moses, in the
Gubernatorial chair.-Quitman Banner.
SSS- The New York Evening Post,
which has supported Grant in almost
everything, argues that the President's
salary cannot bo changed during his
term, but mildly suggests that there is
nothing to prevent his returning tho in
crease to the Treasury, should he deem
it advisable. But Grant is not going to
return any of bis salary. He is one of |
those who take and keep all they can get.
.TZ?r- Tins is no intoxicating beverage
r doctored liquor, to lead the tippler on
t drunkenness and ruin, but a strictly
medical preparation made from roots
and herbs, suitable to any agc oreoiiTll-|
tion. As a family remedy, Simmon's
iii vcr Regulator is equal to an entire
medicino chest. ?

Mrs. ISABELLA MORRISON' BLOCK
EU, widow of the late JAMES BLOCKER,
and daughter of JAME-? and AXXA BER
WICK MORRISON, late of Charleston, S.
C , died at the residence ?if her son-in
law, Ur. John Lake', on Sunday, July
27th. She would have completed her
eightieth year on the Thursday (31st;fol
lowing the day of her death.
Possessed of far more than ordinary
mental capacity, she enjoyed in early life
tho best culture which the city of Charles
ton could afford Though reared amid
the refinement and allurements nf high
life in the cit}', and, as au only child,
idolized by her parents, she yet made a
profession of faith in Christ at tho early
age of nineteen, from which time to ber
death she walked tho path of an humble,
eonsistont Christian. She united at (irst
with the Presbyterian Church, but in
1 S31 she became convinced, after haig
and prayerfu) investigation of the word
of God," that it was ber duty tobe im
mersed, and so was baptized into the fel
lowship of Gilgal Baptist Church
Her piety was of the higher order.
Everything that she did displayed thc
controlling influence Of her religious
character. Whilo her charity and be
nevolence were boundless, she combined
with these the most unswerving devotion
to principle and conviction of duty.
Nothing was considered by her as a re
lease from the active service of her Mas
ter. Though an invalid for many years
prior to her death, and for two years eon-,
lined to her bed by inflammatory rheu
matism, blind and deaf, she yet found
frequent opportunity for seeking the
spiritual welfare of others, and her la
Lors were abundantly blessed. Her faith
in prayer was unwavering. She prayed
and expected an answer, and to a're
markable degree she was permitted to
see the answers to her prayers. Toward
the close of her life sin- spent live hours
a day in her private devotions, and in
deed seemed ti> live in constant com mull
ion with heaven. She died as she had
lived in thc full triumph of Christian
Thus has passed away from earth a
most remarkable woman. Few such
?lave over adorned the race. May liOY
numerous friends and relatives, as they
cherish her memory, strive to emulate
her exalted vi nues. J,. JJ,
