GIVE HIM A LIFT.
Give him a lift I Don't kneel in prayer,
Nor moralize with his despair.
The man is down, and his great need
Is ready help, not prayer and creed.
'Tis time when wounds are washed and
That the inward motive be revealed ;
But now, whate'er the spirit be,
Mere words are but mockery.
One grain of aid just now is more
To him than tomes ot saintly lore.
Pray, if you must, in your heart,
But give him a lift, give a start.
The world is full of good advice.
Of prayer and praise and preaching
But the generous SOL... who aid man
Are scarce as gold and haid to find.
Give like a Christian-speak in deeds ;
A noble life's the best of creeds.
And be shall wear a royal crown
Who gives them a lilt when they are
An Open Letter.
To the Members of the South Carolina
MY DEAK. BSETHEEN : Pardon me
for writing a few lines of suggestions.
I deem them not out of place. A
great many of the discomforts of the
itinerancy may ba lessened if not en
tirely removed, by a little thought
fulness on the part of oui ministry ;
rather, I would eay, by the observ
ance oi the spirit ot the golden rule.
The people are not altogether to
I blame when parsonages are not com
fortably furnished; when an incom
ing pastor is not properly welcomed.
They are willing-ready-but they
need somebody to suggest ; and that
person is the incumbent on the cir
cuit, station, or mission previous to
the session of the Annual Conference.
It is so unpleasant to go to a new
charge and find things disordered. It
is so easy to prevent it. Then, too,
those of us who are on circuits have
horses and cows. How easy, in the
fall of the year, to plant an oat or
barley patch somewhere on the par
sonage lot ; and what a blessing :t is
early in the coming year.
Let me say to the brother, who is
to succeed me on the Johns on Cir
cuit, that I am already preparing for
bis coming. To morrow, (September
11th), fifteen ladies, representing my
three churches, will meet at the par
sunage by my request. They will
look into the needs of the parsonage
and what is necessary will be supplied,
made up, and in its place, by the end
of the year. We do this now, be
cause it can't be done well in a rush
just before a new preacher comes.
Then, before I leave for Confer
ence, I will appoint good, judicious,
faithful committees for the following
work: One committee to meet him
and family at the train; one t> give
a warm welcome to the parsonage ;
one to 6ee that there are provisions to
last him several dajza-rCerbaps weeks;
one T?niaVe~ ou li'and -ar K&pprj
wood, horse-feed, &c. And, let me
say, there will be no bill presented
for a eiogle thing; the value of it
all wont be discussed at the first
Quarterly Conference. It will not
cost him a cent.
In addition to all this I will turn
over to him one of the most delight
ful charges in the Conference, made
up of men and women as true, faith
lui and devoted as will be found any
where. May God bless them with a
true, faithful, devoted paetor. My
dear brother, care tor them and they
will care for you. The timely thought
fulness and generosity of these breth
ren and sisters in the country and
town; favors shown by mechanics
and exceedingly liberal merchant
who have supplied us with goods a
first cost, with only fr?ighl added
have 6aved us, in four year?, at leas
three hundred dollars.

Cremation in Euglaud,
Dr. Cameron gave notice in tl
House of Commons on Saturday of h
intention on an early day next sessio
to introduce a bill legalizing crematioi

Meantime the ordinary form of buri
holds its ground, and there are
symptoms as yet o' a change oi pu

of the upper classes would kim
give direction for the burning of th

notion became prevalent that to bi
dead bodies rather than bury th
was the right thin,, to do from a
cicty1' point of view, the relatives ?

to promote cremation than all t

The Lien Law.
Quite a number of exchanges
at presett in favor of abolishing
Lien Law. They are in a very

Keplj to Capt, A. P, W?stV
From thc Lexington Dtep?i)ch.
I have disclaimed any desire to be
personal in my cbmmanications, but
in discussing measures we are some
times forced, though unwillingly,., to
discuss very personal matters. And
yet, after all, perhaps there is no bet
ter way to reach bottom facts than to
display the characters and reputa
tions of those directly connected
therewith, so that the public may not
hesitate in their decision.
All along I have had no desire to
"scribble" for the pap?is in relation
to our'school troubles, and if a tith
ing of that charity which I have
shown toward others had been mini
tested toward me, the troubles under
which we now labor would have
never existed, or if existed, would
have been mole-hills instead of moun
One thing is: certaiay some one is
responsible for our troubles. If I am
responsible, I accept it ; if I am not,
then some one else must shoulder the
responsibility. In this matter I stand
as no partisan leader, but from a
just sense of what I have accom
compliehed in moral and educational
matters, the people have a sincere ap
preciation of me, and by their voice I
am retained as the infractor of their
children. From this position I will
not shrink, despits the puny efforts
of an opposing faction.
Capt. Weet; in last week's Dispatch
calls in question the troth ol' a state
ment I made the week previous in
the Dispatch in the reply to Rev.
Joab Edwards. Of course, it was
policy for him to do so, considering
the position he occupies ; but having
chosen his position, he must expect to
hear truths which, if any sense of
honor and shame is left, will render
that position a very unpleasant ene.
For the benefit of the public, I wilt
give the language Capt. West used
to me, which I denominated "unso
licited testimony" regarding the
"reputation of Rev. Edwards." Just
prior to Rev. Edwards* moving to
Leesville, which was last fall, Capt.
W., o?i not fewer than three occasions,
said to me, " I do dread that man's
coming here." I asked bim, why ?
He replied, "Because he's the etub
tornest headed fellow you ever saw,
and when he sets hie head, you can't
stop him. I'm afraid he'll give ua
trouble if he comes here." He then
went on to allude to some church
trouble in which he (Capt. W.) and
Rev. E. were opp-sers of each other,
and that on account of said trouble
Rev. E. had not been very friendly
toward him. This information was
entirely unsolicited so fdr as I was
concerned. Rev. E. was an- entire
stranger to me, and I remarked to
Capt. West that I hoped no man
would come here and work dissen
S?OJIB among,the. very people whom I
U.iU lui IU?V j?ttia i/tiiT>. -
monize in every good word and workT
Bear in mind, that Capt. W. at that
very time had sold Rev. E. a lot, and
was chi?, fly instrumental in peieu-ul
ing him to come to Leesville ! This
language Capt. West may now deny,
but to do so will cause a sacrifice ol
truth. It proof is ?eked, I think il
will not be hard to find others tc
whom Capt. W. used similar lan
1 regret that the shoit sighted pol
icy of Capt. West forced him to re
sort to the public print in denyi?|
what I have stated, but since a fui
ther discussion willi him will develo
other heretofore undeveloped maiiei
in this school question, I will, if nee
essary, lay belore the r?adcrs ol tb:

In Memory of Chancellor Carroll?
?cd 1 )
; of a
At a late meeting of the Columbia
Bar-held for the purpose-the fol
lowing Preamble and Resolutions were
unanimously adopted r
In the providence of God, James
Parsons Carroll, the mostdistingtuGhed
member, of the Columbia bar, has
been removed by death irom hie place
inour midst. At the last sitting of'
Court he occupied his accustomed seat
in the full vigor of his intellectual
powers, and attracted the admiration
of the bench and the bar by the earn
est, eloquent and cogent pr?sentation
of bis causes. To-day be sleeps the
sleep of death. While as members of
the same professional brotherhood we
mourn his loss and join in the general
3orrow that a distinguished citizen,'a
learned lawyer and an upright and
incorruptible Judge of former years
has passed away, yet we cannot but
remember with reconciled feelings
that he died, as lie often expressed the
wish to die, in' the full possession of I
all his faculties; that although by
reason of strength the years of his age
were prolonged beyond the three score
years and teD allotted to mau here on
earth, be suffered while in life from
no lingering disease, no slow decay
of his physical or intellectual powers.
As we knew him in the long past, so
he appeared when he last presented'
himself in the forum, where he. was
distinguished as a counselor, and
where, as a Chancellor, he had presid
ed while the Courts of Chancery in
South Carolinas a separate tribunal
yet survived. The lamented deceased,
though now withdrawn forever from
our eight, will long be missed and
will long be remembered by us all for
his example of personal dignity, for
his legal learning, his high-br?d cour-'
tea", bis persuasive ' eloquence, his
unobtrusive charities, his unselfish
benevolence and his incorruptible in
As an bumble tribute, therefore, to j
the memory of the man, the citizen,
the distinguished barrister, the aged
counselor, the learned and impartial.j
Judge, be it unanimously
Resolved, That in the death of the
late Chancellor James Parsons Carroll,,
the bar of Columbia bas sustained
gi ea' loss which cannot be supplied.
Resolved, That we do hereby put
in record our appreciation of our de
ceased brother, not only in his com
pleted work and in his ended life, but
on hi9"peaceful depth and in the fra
grant, memory that he has leit to ns
of his virtues and his worth.
Revolved, That the Chairman of
this meeting of the Columbia bar, as
a lurther mark of respect, be and he
is herebv, instructed to present the
preamble aud the resolutions now
adopted to the presiding Judge at the
next Eittings o? the Court of Common
Reas for Richland County, with the
Resolved, That a copy of the pro
ceedings ol this meeting be presented
by the Secretary to Mrs. Carroll, the
widow, and to each of the daughters
of our deceased friend as au expres
sion of our respect and sympathy.

A Card From Mrs. Stonewall Jack
: Upon my return from ray recent
yisit to the North, I find some com
ments which are not entirely just,
from the Southern press, and in jus
tice to myself and my daughter, I
fciuBt correct some statements which
haye been made. After joining Gov.
?nd Mrs. Jarvis, who were going to
take the same trip we were, (and
where could we find a more pleasant
and suitable party tc travel with than
the Governor^ of my native State and
his excellent wife?) aninvitation was
extended to us to become the guests
of tbe-State of Massachusetts.
Twas advised by Southern friends
tb accept it; and it was urged that
wei^would not be the guests of Gov.
Butler, but of the State, which repre
seaiecLmany good and noble people,
W???? in Boston, we entertained at a
Eot'el, and did not cross the threshold
of~Gen. Butler. Justice, however,
compels me to say that he was want
inj in no courtesy to the guests of his
State. The people of Boston, and at
every point we visited in the North,
certainly gave eviderce that my hus
band's name was held in such honnr
ahd reverence, that my heart could
not but be touched with tender and
grateful emotion. I was told they
admired him for " his moral gran
deur," '.'his exalted piety ;" that he
was the " bravest man the wai pro
duced on either side," and that they
' were proud of him as an Americau
citizen," &c. Surely there must be
e?Wgh of chivalry and right feeling
on the part of all true Southerners to
cast no blame upon me for having
been the ineaue of evoking such senti
ments as theae; and while every in
stinct of my natute is loyalty and de
votion to the South, I can testify that
there are many excellent Christiane
atthe North who are anxious to blot
out all sectional differences and to ex
tend to us the love and kindness
wtrich makos a nation " that happy
[.espie whose God is tbe Lord."

! A Cbirngo Parent's Sensible Advice to
n mushing Lover.
A queer case ha? jost come to light
, in Chicago. A young man speut au
j evening with his girl, and during
I the evening, wh'le the family was
present in the parlor, he was as de
mure and bland and child-like as
could be wished. The mother came
into the r joni after the faini:y had
retired to get a handkerchief she had
left, and the youug man was seated
in a chair in the .middle of the room,
while the girl was seated on a sofa,
and nothing that the mother could
see in the actions of either led htr to
think they were inora than passing
acquaintances, lt seemed to her as
though the you ig people had met
before, but there was no evidence that
they were very weil acquainted. At
! hight, after he had gone, the girl
complained ol' a pain in her side, and
in the morning a doctor was cal le J ?
and ht found that two of the girl's
ribs were broken. How it was done
nobody kne- \ The girl could not
tell for the life of her, though she
blushed wheu asked about it, and
the mother looked very wise as she
looked at the doctor. The doctor
made some inquiries, set the ribs and
went away, and the girl proceeded
That evening the young man called
and was astonished when informed
of the extent of the girl's injuries,
and wondered how it could have hap
pened, though the mother watched
his lace close as he spoke and detect
ed uot only a blu-di but a profuse
perspiration on his face. She had
been a girl once herself, and though
she had never had any ribs bioken
she had been hugged some. It was
a trying position for all of them. The
f ither was away on a trip to Wiscon
sin, and when he came home the
matter had to be explained to him
He was told that the ribs just simply
broke themselves, and that neither
tlie mother nor the girl nor the young
man couid account for it, and yet at!
three o? th m blushed terribly. The
father patted his girl on. the bend,
told her she would be better when
she got over it, and then called the
young man into the libraiy. The
young mau was so weak he could
hardly walk, and when he sat dow'j
he took out a handkerchief and uicp
ptd bia brow and wished he wai dead.
The father looked the young man
over and was sorry. He finally
" Young mau, J guess I can give
you somi* points on hugging. You
must first learn that a girl is no' con
structed nu thc same principle of at:
iron felice or a I MISS bridge. A gir
is a delicate piece ol mechanism, hkr
