It is well known to our Christian
brethren that the Religious Society
^^p-&ri!ffii*&as-erer b?h?Ved that all
war is entirely forbidden by the Gos
pel, and that, in accordance with that
belief, its members have, as a rule,
refrained from taking any part in
carnal warfare ; and for refusing t<>
comply with military requisitions, or
to pay fines for thu? refusing, many,
in years past, have sufiered distraint
of goods to large amounts, and not a
few have been imprisoned. Beside a
passive testimony thus borne by mem
bers individually, the Society has,
from time to time, issued its public
protest against this heathen and wick
But while we have cause to feel
thankful for the amelioration of mili
tary laws, whereby our members are
now generally exempt from suffering,
we are pained in knowing that war,
with all its horrors, ia yet allowed
and practiced by all the Christian
nations, and sanctioned by the larger
Sortions of the Christian Church. As
kristians, we all believe in the ful
fillment of prophecy. Dr. Chalmers,
more than fifty years ago, testified
that "The mere existence of this
prophecy of p*eace is a sentence of
condemnation upon war, and stamps
a criminality on its very forehead. So
soon ?s Christianity shall gam a full
ascendency in the world, from that
moment war is to disappear."
Bel laving that it is only by aJiill
and proper application of the Gospel
in the affairs of nations, as well as
individuals, that the prophecies in
regard to war will be fulfilled ; and
believing, as a branch of the Church
which has so long seen the true char
acter of this heathen abomination,
that we were not doing all that we
should do toward enlightening our
brethren on this important subject,
most of the Yearly Meetings o?
Friends have united in the organiza
tion of " The Peace Association ol
Friends in America," to which is del
egated this important work, with in
structions to labor expressly on their
behalf in the more general promotion
of the cause of Peace.
The Association, in the fulfillment
of its trust, has thus far mostly con
fined its labors to the printing and
circulation of books and tracts, and
the publication of a monthly paper
called the Messenger of Peace. Du
ring the few years of its existence,
millions of pages have been distribu
ted far and wide, and many acknowi
edgments have been received of th<
convincing effects of the truth there
The attitude of millions in thc
prime of ..manhood, now kept con
stantly armed and equipped for mu
. tual slaughter by the nations of Eu
rope, anti the sudden uprising of tht
war spirit in our midst, convince ui
of the necessity of further and more
direct efforts to arouse and awakei
the public to a clearer appreciatioi
of the trae character of this mons
trous evil. If it-ia only bytl
can be abolished, surely it is the duty
of the Church to labor for ita propel
But, in view of the apathy that sc
generally pr vails, we feel constrain
ed to appeal directlv to our Christiar
brethren, individually and collective
ly, earnestly entreating them to take
this subject into prayerful considera
tion in all its bearings. Can we be
lieve that if the members of tin
Christian Church everywhere wer?
entirely to refrain from taking pari
in carnal warfare, that professedly
Christian nations could any longe:
continue the custom ? . if we believe
this, we must also believe that th(
responsibility for the continuance o.
war rests upon the Church. Deai
fellow-professors, can you rest satis
fled in continuing to bear the weight
of this awful responsibility ?
While statesmen and publicists art
laboring to relieve suffering humani
ty from the blight of this dieadiul
curse, the Church of Christ remain*
silent. Surely it is time for it to ante
from its Siuiawi, ami tu procmTurrn
supremacy ! Is not eighteen hun
dred years long enough for its whit?
robes, which should be pure and
spotless, to have been stained in blood
Must the skirts of ?he visible Church
be longer pollnted with the gore ol
the battle-field, and stained with the.
tears of the orphan and the widow ?
While war, as has been said, seerad
to aim at setting up the kingdom ol
Satan in the earth, alas I the Church
remains to be its very bulwark I
Surely it is time to wipe out this
reproach against Him, at whose coin
ing into the world, Peace on earth
and good will to men was proclaimed,
and eugagj in this holy warfare
against the, supremacy of .'Satan?

The following, from a Ballimore busi
ngs man, is delightful-and explains itself ]
COLUMBIA, S. C., Mardi 19,1874.?
Editor Daily Union I 1er ali :
DEAR SIB-Before leaving VOUA c-iiy,
where everything, except the forlorn emt*
itor, is altogether lovely, I feel constrain
ed to publish my experience as a collector'
of outstanding accounts against those who
min the Statt.-. I came here, something
over two weeksago, to collect a bill agaiust
Governor Moses for the parchase of mir
rors from the house ol' Eokhardt A Mellier,
Baltimore street, Baltimore. The history
of this mirror of South . C?rofi?? is briet,
but pertinent. One ye?ir ago, passing
through this city, I negotiated with G?re
rai Denni* tor an order io suppl; the
Blandi.ng street palace wi: h mirrors. 1
returned burne wi h the u:i<ierst.-.n>.i ng
that i was to - n i t im >. p .f.on: bo^k
which I did: an i, sh'?rl:y atl'jr, :>-II IV:::C

then look the order from General Dennis
f r about $2,600 worth ot' looking-glass,
window comices etc., including in the bill
my ex. elise.-. Fascinated with the royal
entertainment I received, and with iho
universal air nf tmn-y and prosperity
which surrounded me, i certainly thought
that this order was a good thing for all
hands. The order was lilied, and a thou
saud dollars paid upon it. For the
balance of $1.800 two notes were- given,
both endorse<l by Genet al Dennis, which
the house now holds protested, and which
were to have been paid, as I have it in
black aud white, out of the contingent
fund as soon as the appropriation bill was
passed. About the time of the passage of
this bili, I came hereto get paid, and have
been here ever since, dancing attendance
upon his Excellency in his "indiscriminate
ante room. There are few places in this
world with which I am better acquainted
than that unique ante-room, and the only
satisfaction I have is iii the knowledge
that misery loves company, and of which
1 had any quantity in number and varie
The tinner, the tinker, the butcher,
e painter, the builder, the newspaper
man, the member of the General Assem
bly, were there from " morn to dewy eve."
It was a regular bankruptcy court, with
a meeting of creditors daily. The most j
acute agony I experienced-during two
weeks of waiting and gnashing of teeth
from 10 to 4, my office hours in the ante
room-was being mistaken by somebody
for his Excellency. I have not yet recov
ered from that shock. I saw the Gover
nor once or twice, and if the most iron
clad promise, nut up in the latest improv
ed style, would have done any good, your
correspondent would not be so unhappy.
Not being a Mason, I have been sold. Du
ring that tir>:e there may have been a pre
ferred creditor or two, but I will leave
your city with a clear perception of the
grand present and sublime future in store
for your State.
In closing, ? would say that, more than
my own sufferings, I regret getting Mr.
William J. Hiss, of Baltimore, in a like
fix, who holds a joint note of the Gover
nor and General Dennis for $15,000. for
furniture to supply his mansion in Bland
ing street. This bijl "was to bo paid out ol'
another appropriation, but the economy of
the Legislature pievented it. When I
return, ? will write you further cotuinuni
. cations on the official condition ot your,
4-?tate, ixi all pf-irtnrr i can lake my am
davit. Yours respectfully,
JOHN M. BARRETT.
Miss Nellie Grant's Wedding.
Wash'n Coi. Louisville Courier-Journal.
And now it is rumored that Miss Grant's
wedding is to be hastened, and the names
of her hve bridesmaids are given. These
are the Misses Boric, ol' Philadelphia,
nieces of the ex-Secretary of the Navy ;
Miss Drexel, daughter of the Philadelphia
banker; Miss Kitty Cooke, daughter ol'
the ex-banker, Henry D. Cooke, and Miss
Anna Barnes, daughter of the Surgeon
General. I have not yet heard the names
of the groomsmen. Of course Colonel
Fred Grant will be Miss Cooke's grooms
man ; she is his fiancee. It has been
thought best since the arrival of Mr.
Sartoris to allow th J marriage to take
place next month, instead of waiting uu
til October. The secret of the engage
ment was well kept until the arrival in
Philadelphia of Mrs. Fanny Kemble, who
is Mr. Sartoris' aunt. She mentioned the
fact first. When the elder Mr. Sartoris
and his son met Miss Grant on the steamer
last Octob. r a year, they were on their
way to Michigan, where Mr. Sartoris
owns lands, and be intended to locate
thia his second son in that State to earn
his own living.. The sudden death of
their eldest sou took place while they
were traveling iu the West, and a telegram
was sent to President Graut to learn their
whereabouts and inform them of the sad
news. Of course they returned to Eug
land immediately upon the receipt of this
intelligence. Now that the young man
has such different prospects he will not
cultivate wild land in Michigan, but take
his bride to his ancestral halls. I wonder
if there is as much sorrow felt when a
Udeath is so advantageous.,^ the .brother

Every day or evening lunch or dinner par
ties are given to the nappy young cou Die.
They were present at a lunch which Mrs.
Admiral Lee gave in honor of Miss Pres
ton, prior to her departure from this city.
General Baldock gave them a dinner par
ty Saturday evening, to which many of
the leading young ladies and gentlemen
of the city were invited.
The carriage which conveys the happy
couple around attracts much attention.
It is drawn by four superb looking horses;
the harness is of silver, with glittering
chains and ornaments ; ?he long reins are
white, and tpe liveries of the servants as
handsome as possible. Fisk and Helm
bold brought such a display into such bad
repute that- various comments are made
by spectators. Inasmuch as no modern
President has attempted such stvle, it
would have been better for the family,
considering what a year of suffering this
has been to thousands, and while many
consider it indelicate in the President to
retain the extra twenty-five thousand ad
ded to bis salary, after Congress was
forced to reduce.their own pay, to abstain
from this daily display of their imperial
magnificence, while th* whole country is
agitated about retrenchment. If the

This strong and pointed language
is from the Unior.-Herald : " That

unhappily evident. That corruption

legitimate spoils of plunder; that

FOUND HIS LEVEL.- Henry S.
Foote, once a man of commanding
intellect and position, is getting down
about as low as possible. He was one
of the " dktinguished guests" on the
platform ?t Washington a few nights
ago, witnessing the conferring of de
gress upon seven negro law graduates,
turned out from the law-making mill
attached to Howard University. He
not only smiled complacently as the
negro Langston addressed these new
fledged negro attorneys, predicting
for them judicial and other promi
1 ent pooitious, but he actually took
the place of Senator Morton and ad
dressed the graduating class. As re
ported by the Chronicle, Foote made
a " felicitous address, counseling the
graduates to adhere strictly to the
two great pillars of success-integri
ty and temperance. He also alluded
happily to the woman suffrage ques
tion, its connection with law, and
predicted that the day was not fat
distant when the right of woman suf
frage would be recognized and exer
cised." It may be said that tin;
" everlasting Foote" has at length
found his level in that asylum ol
bankrupt politicians, vagabonds, pro
fligates and thieves, the Radical par
Brevities anti Levities.
