possible that were impossible before,
the favorable conditions to productiow

Republican newspaper of the North

there is another new departure in
Southern affairs. "There has been."
it says, "a marked change in public

-a change in Northern sentiment as
to tile real condition of the Southern
p3ople, and a change in Southern
sentiment as to the real disposition
of the people of the North toward
the South. Much of the trouble at
the South has arisen from a mutual
misunderstanding between North and

heretofore mainly constructed up<n

and desperate classes left by the war,

Southern sentiment has been forced
into a false, narrow and resentful ten

to live upon politics as a business.
The fire-eaters at the South and the
carpet-baggers from the North have
been accepted as the types of senti

the said charge as anomalous, as it
appears to us. It may, however, have
been altogether regular and in accord

"the new regime," though we had
previously been under the impression
that a judge, in the trial of any cause

already of about four hundred, in

The officers of the society have com

custody of children deprived of one
or both of their parents, the care of
those in public institutions, and various
other matters which may involve cases
of eruelty or neglect. The society has
yet no agents or special officers of its
own for the detection or investigation
of such cases, although it is expected
that these will ultimately be appointed.
It will have, however, the aid of the

it is hoped, of the public at large,

science of vocal music, which is so
much neglected in our social circles

here ask if something cannot be done
to bring about a change for the better

that the leaders and teachers of the

themselves to their duty in this en

at any place they may deem proper.
Let every church of the County be

IN THE CITY.
We have had conventions of several
churches, which have brought visitors as
clerical and l-ay delegates from all parts of
the country. First the Baptist Convention
of the South, with a host of learned men
and polished orators, and self-denying mis
sionaries of the Gospel, ready and willing
to do the work of their Master and aid in the
extension of His Kingdom on earth. Just
after their adjournment the Protestant Epis
copal Convention of the Diocese of this State,
commenced its annual session, on the 13th
instant. But the preceding day-Wednesday,
12th instant-was observed in commemnora
tion of the planting of the Episcopal Church
from the Mother Church of England, in the
Province of Carolina, two centuries ago.
The services were held at St. Philip's Church,
and were solemn and impressive, the music

A procession was formed at the Sunday
School House composdd of the vestries of
the city churches and the delegates of all the
churches, headed by the Bishop and Clergy
in their robes, preceded by the choir boys of
the Church of the Holy Communion, thirty
or forty in number, surpliced, the ranks of
the lay delegates then opened, and when the
choir and clergy passed through, the proces
sion countermarched, and when the advance
rached the vestibule of the church the strain
was taken up by the organ and choir of the
church and continued through the hymn un
til the clergy were seated in the chancel and
the rest distributed in the pews reserved for
them. After the services the Bishop deliv
ered (any production from his must be) a
scholarly address, replete with sentimn ents of
charity and Christian feeling towards all
denominations and tendering the hand of
cordiality and sympathy to all the followers
of the meek and lowly Jesas. After an
intrval,to permit those who did not purpose
to partake, the Communion was administered
-to the very large number of those who yet
remained, after which, with the benediction,
the vast concourse was dismissed.
On the next evening at the same church,
and in continuation of the Anniversary ex

was delivered by Mr. J. I. P. Smith, evincing
refined scholarship and industrious historical
The first two days of the session of the
Convention were taken up with the discus
sion of the question on the admission to the
Convention of the delegates from St. Mark's
Church, under the Rectorship of Rev. J. B.
Seabrook. This is a congregation of most
respectable colored persons, who were always
esteemed by the high-toned citizens of Charles

telligent and wealthy of that class. After a
long discussion, a resolution offered by Mr.
E. MCrady, Sr., was passed, referring the
whole matter to a Commission of Seven, to
report to the nexct Convention. The Con

FELLOW-CITIZENS: I rise to offer to
you and this assemblage the cordial re
sponse of the people of South Carolina to
the seutiment which has just been an
nounced, and to all the fearless memo
ries, the high inspirations and the ex
alting hopes which this occasion com
mnieorates and suggests. I know full
well that I speak to-day for South
Carolina chiefly because it is my for
tune to be her official representative.
Older, abler, better voices than mine
wili, I cannot doubt, speak for her
voices of those who have sprung from
this soil, who know as household
words the traditions of the Carolinas,
who will represent more adequately
than I can hope to do, the genus loci
which has inspired, which still inspires,
and which I know will continue to in
spire, and direct the eager, zealous, fer
vid and constant patriotism of the men
of Mecklenburg and Carolina. But
what heart, if it be an American heart,
whether it spring to life beneath
these sunny skies, or where nature
presents herself in more rugged and
repellant forms; what heart, touched
with one spark of the divine flame of
love of country, does not bound and
swell to greet and welcome this day
and this occasion ?
If Marathon and Plataca, after 2,
000 years, still speak the lesson of de
voted and valorous patriotism; if Run
nymede, after six centuries, is still a
name for English patriots to conjure
by; if Marston Moor, though the
heather and the daisy have cov
ered the last traces of the shock
and carnage of her battle for more
than 200 years, is still marked by re
verent pilgrims as the spot where the
long night of kingly prerogative was
ended by the gray dawn of the new
and glorious day of the people's rights;
with what measure of gratitude to
God, of honor to our ancestors, of pa
t r i o t i c gratulation and gladness,
should we, Americans, Carolinians,
greet this spot, where, as we firmly
and advisedly believe, only 100 years
ago, the first formal utterance, of the
great idea of American independence
To a man who believes in human
progress, to one who sees and rever
ences the divine hand in human af
fairs-I care not in what section or
country his sympathies may have been
nurtured-the deed done in Charlotte
town, in Mecklenburg County, May20,
1775, will stand at once as a monu
ment and an inspiration, a trophy and a
prophecy, of the sure and pre-ordained
coming of the day when the feeble light
which~flamed forth here a hundred
years ago, shall fill the whole world.
The Declaration of Mecklenburg !
It was but a spoken word-an' artica
ated breath of this universal air
yet it was a deed, a battle, a victory
No cannon thundered it ; ro tclegraph
flashed it; yet it was "heard round
'That death-shot shook the feudal tower,
And shattered slavery's chain as well;
On the sky's dome, as on a bell,
It's echo struck the world's great hour."
The men of Mecklenburg! They
were the plain farmers, physicians,
lawyers and ministers of this seclude~d
canton, unambitious of fame, seeking
nothing but their accustomed rights,
the moral as well as lineal children of
John Knox, resolute before men as
they were reverent before God. Col.
Thomas Polk, a heart as pure and
brave as Richard Coeur de Lion, Doe
tor Ephrainr Brevard, the gentle
scholar and physician, the flame of
whose devotion of liberty never flick
ered till it was quenched by the
damps of a British prison-ship fiv
years later-these, and such as th'ey
were, the men who alone, self-inspired,
in advance of all others, at the time
when Thomas Jefferson was writing to
John Randolph, "I would rather be in
dependence on Great Britian, properly
limited, than on any nation on earth,
or than on no nation," sounded the
first signal-note of absolute revolt and
idependence. We tear no leaf to.
day from the brow of any Revolution.
ary patriot, who elsewhere by pen 0o
sword, upheld the same great cause.
We seek only with the jealousy of fil
ial reverence and love to guard the
fame, to honor the memory, to proclaim
the early abounding and impetuous
patriotism of the men of Mecklenburg.
A few simple virtues constitute the
sum and perfection of human great
ness. Simplicity of character, single
ness of aim, consistency of purpose,
"readiness to do or dare whatsoever is
commanded by the inward voice of
native manhood"-such qualities in
due combination have made the true
heroes of all ages. Of such stuff the
heroes of Mecklenburg were made. I
do not for a moment conjecture that
they foresaw the vast consequences of
their acts here 100 years ago. The
gift of prophecy was long since with
drawn from mortal man. These men
caught no glimpse, I venture to say,
of the America of thirty-seven States,
of 40,000,000 of people, .stretching
from ocean to ocean, covering every
sea with her commerce, and reaching
every land with her influences. They
loved their homes and their families;
they valued their home-born rights
and privileges, the dear gifts of honor
ed sires ; they reverenced the grand
structure of English law:
"A land of settled government, -
A land ofjust and old renown;
Where freedom slowly broadens down,
From precedent to precedent."
These were their heritage, their
wealth, their life. For these they
were ready to live or die. And so
they became heroes.
Napoleon has been thought to have
uttered a great word when, standing
within the shadows of the pyramids,
be exclaimed : "Soldiers, from yonder
beights forty centuries contemplate
you~r actions." Vain and empty
words ! The pyramids themselves
were but the visible monuments of a
slavery blacker than Egyptian dark
aess, and the voice which spoke from
them was but a voice that mocked the
anhalowed ambition of him who in
roked it. The grand army long since
was swept away, the fiery ambition of
~he great conquerer was quenched in
gnoble bondage, and the last repre
enaieothdyat which he de
botrnty, the grace and the glory of en
The declaration here made was a
single isolated act-the act of the re
presentatives of - the people of one
County. But the spirit of indepen
dence was in the air. A year and for
ty-five days later the declaration of
Mecklenburg was the declaration of
the United States of America. From
that hout, the men of Mecklenburg
made common cause with all Ameri
cans in the struggle which followed.
Mecklenburg was thenceforth merged
in the struggling, rising nation. With
in a radius of forty miles from this
centre, a score of fields were wet with
blood which was the price of American
independence. It is a proud record.
Let its voice be heard to-day above
the estrangements of later times;
above the differences which, in other
days, may still divide us. The decla
ration of Mecklenburg was the quick
response of this people to the firs.
shedding of blood at Lexington. I
stood the other day on the field of
Lexington, amidst the wealth, the cul
ture, the abounding population of
Massachusetts, and I listened with
proud and willing heart to the cordial,
heartfelt words of cheer and sym
pathy for the Carolinians and the
South, which formed one of the most
significant features of the great occa
sion. I thought I saw the fraternal
feeling which will surely flow over
the whole American people, making
the men of Lexington and the men of
Mecklenburg enemies no more, and
rivals only, as of old, in the promp,i
tude and constancy of their devotion
to American freedom and nationality.
Let a like voice be heard to-day. The
ear of Lexington is bent low to catch
the welcome sound. Let it go forth
-the voice of Mecklenburg-proclaim

Mrs. SALLIE MCCRACKEN, wife of L. C.
McCracken, and daughter of Joseph and
Eliza Heller, died at her home in Union
Coun ty,on the 17th of May, 1875, in the 35th
year of her age. The disease that terminated
her existence was protracted and painful.
Her death was one of uncommon resignation
and Christian triumph. She leaves behind her
a warm-hearted husband and three helpless
little ones, and a large circle of relations and
friends to mourn her loss, but methinks if
she could whisper from her bright home in
Glory, she would say, "Weep not for me,
but weep for yourselves and my children."
