On Tuesday last we made an inter
esting viNit to the Mission School of
the Episcopal Church recently estab
lished in our town, pnd wore much
pleased with the tidiness and order
and progress displayed by the pupils.
The board of missions has been *fortu
nate in procuring the services of a
lady who conbines with a singular ex
perience qnd aptitude for teaching the
very warmest Southeri sympathies
an( i4eas and an intimate familiarity
with the character of the race that is
too rare in similar establishments. The
ex perinie-t, in our altered condition
of educating and instructing the negro
-is a most interesting one, and the
work we believe a good and.useful one.
It is well when it can be entrusted to
such safe and chpable hands. We
wish the enterprise every success.
On the forenoon of Sabiath last,
having been too unwell to participate
in public divine worship, we had oc
casion to fall into a certain train of
reflection upon church music. Our
home being in the' sound distance of
three of our churches, in all of which
public worship was going on, it occurr
ed to us that church music was one
part of the public worship too much
neglected. We compared the desire to
have an educated ministry with the
desire to have good music much to the
detriment of the latter. If our pas
tors offend.good grammar, chaste rhet
oric, or able thought, we are quick' to
criticise their short 'comings. But
rarely do we appreciate thq defects .of
poor church music. Tijse, style, char
acter, suitableness, melody and' har
mony, may all b e ignored in this mat
ter, and elicit nought but a simple re
gret. Now we regard bad time in sa
cred mnusic as unbecoming as bad
grammar. in the pastor. And the con
gregation, collectively, should be 11s
solicitous to overcome the one, as they
are to have the other. imarmounted in

In consequence of the lateness of the
honr we have time to advert only bri4
ly to.the intelligence in onr paper from
the PhiladelpfAn Convention. The
whole South will rejoice over these tid
ings,' and the Southern heart in her woe
and sufTerng will thrill with fresh hopep,
and impilses and energies, as she sees
in these proceedings the harbingers W1
concord and praotical peace. So far the
p6hicy of,tle Southern Country in ae
ceptitig afilliation and active co-operation
with the svipathetic elements of the
North is more than vindicated. and thq
J'Alacy of tho.-e, who attacYg too !ittle
weight to the antecedents and devotei
heroism of this party at tho North. and
failing to perceive in an o'moxious reso.
tion or two, a transparent polit'cal arti
fice, have opposed the movement, as
clearly- demonstrated. .
It must be the fervent prayer of the
nation that the spirit that has pi esid
ed over its inauguration will. control
its deliberations..to the end-the same
harmony and fraternity-the same for
getfulness of doad, and buried issues
and ignoring of all - sectional distihic
tion,-the same' recognition of the
rights of our people-the same senti
nent that moved to the self-exclnsion
of certain noble patiibe of the Nnrth,
who felt that in consequence of pecu
liar odium that attached to them per
sonally, their presence was-unfavorable
to harmony-even the pardonable and
even pleasing dramatic trickery 'by
which South Carolina and Massachu
setts moved arm in arm to a common.
purpose. If this should be so, and the
appeil made from the madness of leg
islators to the heart of the North upon a
broad and Catholic sentiment of un
ion and justice and the inalionable
rights of a people-may we not hope,
if man is a brotherhood of common in
stincts and. impulses, of right and hu
manity and common sense, that the
time is not as far distant as many of
us appfehended, wheti we may wit
uess the doom of radicalism and the
"dry bones" of our dead 'Southern
hopes, revivified to a fresh vitality.
