Rev. Mr. Patton is a Professor in
Erakine College. Mr. Joynes waE
one of the teachers at the TeacherE
Institute last year, and is said to
be quite a pleasant gentleman.
About Mr. McBride we know no
thing. Mr. Davis is the teacher of
Mt. Zion Academy at Winnsboro
and the editor of the Winnsboro
Hewos and Herald. We know no
thing of Rev. Mr. Alexander.
None of the Professors are mer
of mark ; none of them have an ex
tended reputation as teachers
what their'local reputation may b<
we know not. We can say, how
ever, without any unkindness tc
any of them, that the Faculty ii
not composed of men of such brain
culture and reputation as woul
warrant any very high expectationi
as to the success of the institution
or as would reconcile the taxpayer
of the State to a very lavish appro
priation of the public money for it
The Trustees, no doubt, did th4
best they could in making thei
selections ; for while the candidates
were quite numerous there was's
great scarcity of men of ability.

At a session of the Southern

gravely disapproving the action of
the American Bible Society refusing
aid in the publishing and circula

Jas. P. Boyce, in speaking upon
the resolution, denounced the action
of the Bible Society as an insult to

that the Society had offended schol

The Tariff Commission bill is at I t
ast out of Congress, having furnished I t
;be largest amount of chin-music of .d
sny measure before that body for tb
years. Some of the speeches not de- br
livered, but whose authors obtained eh
leave to print." are still coming out f
in the Record. I do not entertain any di
great degree of admiration for those sy
Democrats who supported the bill and b,
forced the party in Congress to throw
away the advantage it might have de- ci
rived from a square stand on the ques- ai
tion. The pressure has already be- m
gun on the Presiden5 in behalf of ta
persons anxious to serve on the cow- ,
mission ; and the applicants do not tr
consider that they know no.hiog about pi
the subject of the tariff, but are con
pletely absorbed with the idea of $10 n
per diem and expenses. The Presi- tE
dent will, it is hoped, put some ex- '
perts on the commission, but it will I
require all his nerve and deterwioa- c
tion to withstand the appeals of the i
politicians. It is generally accepted in
here as conclusive that the commis- w
sion will manage to perpetuate its P
existence for several years to come, I
and if it makes any report at all at 0,
the beginning of the next session of at
Congress, it will be merely one of a f
preliminary character. Indeed, the
longer the protectionists can keep the s
commission in existence the better a,
they will be pleased. It can be set Ii
down as a dead certainty that nothing is
will be done with the tariff during the
life of this Congress, and if the Dem ,
ocrats of the next Congress surrender o
to the straight-out protectionists as S
they are now, any hopes the tariff re- 0
formers may have of a revision of the w
present tariff prior to the Presidential y
election of 1884 will prove ground- e
Much has been said and written "
lately about President Arthur's man- 81
ners and habits and mode of life, but I ti
am not inclined to believe half that is b
reported concerning the "high old
times" of himself and a few choice ,
spirits over their wine at the White is
House. Yet is is unquestionably true '
that the President if a high liver. He p
likes good wine, good cooking, and i
tho society of his particular friends. a
In addition to this he is an aristocrat r
in his feelings, tastes, and all his in. P
stincts Some time ago there was a
great flourishing of trumpets over the i
asserted fact 'gat at last we had an o
old-time gentleman in the White s
House-a man of the old school, who t
would entertain royally and restore j
the Executive Mansion to the courtly d
manners to which for some years it I
had been a stranger. But somehow i
this tune is no longer sung among a
our society devotees. Beyond his ,
aristocratic ways and his free use of v
wine, there does not seem to be the n
courtliness about the President and his ~
ebode which was anticipated. There
is of late even a disposition to criticise i
his lack of courtesy. The other r
evening at his card reception his i. ?
vited guests were kept cooling their
heels in the open air more than twen- e
ty minutes after the hour named on e
the cards of invitation for the recep- t
tion to bcgin. Several hundred peo- ~
ple had been invited to call on him i
between the hours of eight and ten i
o'clock. The President set the time i
himself. When eight o'clock came ~
it found two or three hundred early g
birds in front of the Executive Man- a
sion awaiting his pleasure. But they u
had to wait for nearly half an hour ~i
later, and the ladieo, shivering in ~
evening wraps at the White House ~
door, heaped a good many feminine,
objurations on the President's head, u
as under the circumstances they cer.
tainly had a perfect right to do.
The society people used to sneer at i
Hayes for not h-eving wine #t his card a
receptions, but at the levee the other t
night neither wine nor eatables were
served and most of the invited guests ~
went supperless to bed unless they t<
took a cold bite at home. A select ri
few were invited to dine, but the rest e
were not offered so much as a sand- C
wich. To give the Fraud his due, I ii
must say that Hayes, with all his it
stinginess, never failed to spread the e
table on these occasions. But Mr. &
Arthur cares only for the company
and countenance of a dozen or so
cboiae spirits, and refuses to sacrifice ci
his personal babits or comaforts to the 0
Presidential office. For his chums *
the White House doors are always a:
ajar ; for the public never. For his fe
chums the White Rouse cellar is a;
stored with the' rarest vintage and .
eiasby the hnrd. That re
minds me cf something. I was told 15
the other day that the White House a
steward was asked by the President to ni
send up a box or two of cigars of a
certain brand. "But they are all d,
gone, Mr. President," said Steward fa
Crump. "Why, I got several hun. T
dred boxes not long ago." "I can't ~
help it, sir; they are all gone. You b<
etsee how, I know, but I do. You tk
know your friends smaoke a good deal b<
and drink a goo'i deal. They can't ~
drink more than they can carry away,
bat when they are asked to smoke, a

again they go to the boxes for e

aty of the church to counteract t.hi-s bane- #
I influence by all the means in her power. I
2erefore it is necessary that we, as thet
ofessed followers of Jesus Christ, do our
most to educate our people to a taste for
althy and pure literature. Now I think
ere are some works of fiction that nay 0
read witb perhaps no evil results, such tl
Dickens, Sir Walter Scott, &c., and v
lakspeare's works are profitable in more
ays then one; but it is not of this class n
speak. Yet even they are not to be 0
impared with religious literature-that p
caich brings out the good in men and wo
enn, that leads them to higher aspirations ~
d nobler aims, that turns their eyes from
r&b to heaven, that causes them to regret a
e error and to accept the good. These
e they which should grace our libraries, g

ighbors and our friends.
I suppose I ought to stop here ; but I
