NEWBERRY, S. C.
Wednesday Morning, August 15, 1866.
We learn, and bpe it be true, that the
railroad bridge over Broad river will be com
pleted by the latter part of this month.
We are indebted to the Publisher, Mr. De
Fontaine, for a copy of the Burning of Co%
lumbia, by Dr. D. H. Trezevant. It is a re
view of Northern Assertions, and Southern
Facts and is interesting not only for present
reading but should be filed away for future
record. Send orders to Carolinian office.
Mr. R. M. Stokes of Columbia, will issue
this week a Tabular list of the range of Gold
in Confederate money, for every 15 days du
ring the war. This table will be valuable in
making settlements, or for reference, to all
classes of citizens, and every one should pro
cure a copy at once. We will be happy to
receive all orders, either for single copies or
otherwise; single copy 15 ets, 2 for 25 cts. or
10 for $1.
We seriously think that the times and the
-easons are inappropriate for so many barbe
cues. In the first place it is too warm, and
in view of the deficit of provender, we think
It an unnecessary if not sinful waste. In the
-merry month of May, when thg earth is
mellow and verdant, skies clear, and the at
mosphere transparent and balmy, and filled
with perfumed zephyrs from the temple of
Flora, and the melody of birds in the honey
moon,it is delightful to enjoy amid enchant
ed scenes, those festive, social gatherings;
and when the pensive hues of autumn are
apace, and requiems are whispered by the
passing breeze;throngh grove and glade, in
memoriam, it is pleasant to mingle ere the
beauties of the dying year are gone,and kira
le anew the hearty and exuberent pleasures
that spring from friendly greetings.

fnruishes the following interesting notice of
the Baptist Sunday School at Greenville,
which is under the superintendence of C. J.

and one of the largest in the United States

soon show gratifying results. True, all

double their present size. Every shoulder to

We regret to .notice from time to time the
necessity which forces Southern journalists
to appeal to their patrons. The expenses of
publishing are very heavy, and unless pub.
lishers are remunerated, it is impossible to
propel the press. We can learn a wbolesome
lesson from the North, in this particular-it
bountifully sustains its literature. Northern
people appreciate the true value of the "art
preservative of all arts," and this is the rea,
son why it is so far ahead of us in many re
spects-it fosters literature, which develops
all her resources. In letters, agricultural art,
chemistry, science, mechanism, etc., see her
wonderful fiejds. The South, too, can build
up a golden age, under the blessings of God,
if she improve her talents. We must develop
OUR resources. And in order to do so, it is
important that we read, digest and improve
the latent powers of mind, thereby keeping
up with the steady march of science and art.
There are eventful changes in all depart'
ments of the moral and physical worlds, and
unless we keep pace with the times we may
go beneath the turbid waves of its vast im,
pulsion. The Northern people sustain their
journals and periodical literature lavishly,
hence the gigantic development of letters,
commerce and trade.
The world moves on to its grand consum
mation. Let us not neglect the gifts that are
within our reach. The privileges that are
ours. While the North is too fast, the South
is too slow.. If they are before the age in
some particulars, we are behind it in others.
We must grasp the fulcrum and lever that
the mind's eye will point out and mount the
summit. Our virgin resources are in myriads
-let us then despise political sophistry,
and vulgar literature, and seek a her.ltlhy re
formation by liberally sustaining scientific,
agricultural and literary journals that will
reveal the hidden treasures of the South.
There are changes in seasons, etc., that will
enforce, of necessity, counter changes in
labor and the modes of life. Let us then not
continue apathetic, but leaving the issue to,
and trusting in, a kind Providence, do
our whole duty, in purifying, elevating,
adorning, beautifying and strengthening our
section; that amid her vales and slopes, her
deltas, fields and ridges, verdure may clothe
the year with its lovely tints, enriching the
laborer and gladdening all animat3 creation.
So that in the diversified walks of life new
inspirations and labors may open up broader
and higher avenues of cnnobled usefulness
that lie buried in the uutravelled vista of fus
The above reflections came up in our mind
yesterday, while reading the appended elo
quent appeal from that gifted gentleman,Rer.
Tihnan R. Gaines, editor of the "Baptist
Church and Sunday School Messenger,"
published at Yorkville, in this State We
recently read the valedictory of an editor
whose abilities were very far above mediocre,
who was forced to suspend because his of,
fice expenses were greater than his income.
Every now and again we witness the merg
ing of two papers in one in order to make a
decent support. .We hope for a better day.
The following is Rtv. Mr. Gaines' appeal to
To OUR SUBsCRIBERS.-When we began
to receive subscriptions to the "Messenger,"
twelve months ago, we took them for only
six months at $1, in specie, to be paid on the
reception of the first Number. WVe got
about two hundred names on .these terms.
We commenced the "Mensenger" as early
as possible. We have now sent out
the fifth Numbe:-. Very few of our six
months subscribers have paid us, This has
greatly embarrassed us. Each Number of'
the "Messenger" has added to our debt $50
in specie. Can our dear Baptist friends who
subscribed willingly, thus deceive and ruin
one who is laboring for the cause of Christ
and the childr en ? Why do they not as they
promised ? We have come to the de-libcrate
conclusion tn suspend the publication of the
Magazine until our sub.scribers pay up. We
do love otber peoples children, but we can,
not see our own come to starvation, while
laboring for theirs. Every month plunges
us deeper and deeper in debt. We hope,
therefore, that our subscribers will send us
the money forthwith, and prevent any fur
ther difficulty. If adl our subscribers will
renew their subscriptions and send us the
money, we can go on successfully. As soon
as we cnn he sufficiently encouragcd, we will
continue the "Messenger." We expect to
enlarge' and improve it ait an early dlay if our
rospects wvill justify. We expect to collect
our sub,criptions at once, by whatever means
inl our power.
We say to those noble ones who have
paid, that if we do not resume the publica
tion of the Messenger, we wvill refund.
We do trust, that our dear tried friends.
will make an earnest effort for nur success.
Get up clubs and send them in at once, so
that the September Number may come out
in its proper time.
Some of our subscribers say the messenger
is worth $10 to their chiidren. We hope
that all will come to our help. We love the
work-we love the Baptist cause-we love
ihe Sunday School-we love the children.
We desire to Jive and labor for their good.
