We publish this morning a report
of the public meeting held in Wins

proceedings may be best understood
by an examination of the resolutions
themselves. It must be conceded that
in comparison with -other inectings in
the State, this was temperate and
moderate, and we were relieved atthe
emphatic and earnest manner in which
the chairman of the committee pro
tested against any idea of repudiation
and recogniscf the just responsi

movement is dangerous and that the

MEssRs. Enrons. 0 n Thursday the
30th of Aigust, it was our ' good for.
tune to have attended the celebration
of the Bethel Church Sunday School,
located twelve. miles unthwest of
Winnsboro. For some time~ past a
deep interest has been manifested id
the Sunday school cause and Bible
class, which has proven thus far an
entire success ; as bothi students and
teachers have evinced an earnest and
commendable zeal in the discharge of
of their duties. We know of no com..
munity that takes a Iivlier interest in
the moral training f 'the paoth; and
have seldom been permnitted to hiay
witnessed a more interesting and plea.
ing spectacle than we did ab-the pio.
nie. At an early hour--the house was
filled and-the services commenced with
an anthem by the ohoir. From a
knowledge we had of the fine attain
ments in vocal music of some of the
choir we anticipated something rich.

never known any speaker so entirely
to enchain or engross - the attention of
an audience, he is a very fluent and
eloquentspeak6r-never at a 'l6s for
words to express his sentiments. But
on'this ooasion he seemed to be in-.
spired (if possible) with more seal and
animation. Iis discourse was ex
tremely . impressive, after paying a
handsome compliment to the choir he
said, thit it was far from his intention
or desire to mar the festivities of the oe
casion; or to cause any sad or pa-nful
Amotions within the breast of -any
present, or to awaken any sorrowful
recollections of the past, but that in
justice to his own feelings he could not
forbear paying a prssing tribute to the
memory of the many noble youths
whom he had been- accustomed to see
mingling with that congrcgation be
fore the- war and whose vacant seats
too well,. too sadly told the tale.
They too had offered up their lives on
the altar of'their country, battling for
the, lost dause of the South. Yes,
those- gallant youths Bookman, Craig,
Gibson, Russell, McKinstry, Frazier,
Lylos, Camaok, Kennedy, Tkapp, the
Brown'j, Tinkler's, Wydok's and oth
ers, whose names we do not now re
member, wore all missing. Ent,
their names would ever live fresh. and
green, inscribed on the tablets of me
mory and enshrined in the. hearts of
their -countrymen. His remarks so
feeling and touching produced quito. a
sensation and caused many a tear. to
course its way down the cheeks, not
only of the tender, lovely female,.but
those also of the sterner sex. The
speaker then passed on to set'forth:the
great benefits which have acorued'to
society from 6 proper conductance of
Sunday Schools and highly lauded the
institution whish has contributed so
mna1* advin intetllcoually. and
morally the griat mass of our people.
In conolusip'n he addrssed himself
particula rly to-the ladies and. endeav
ored to impress on them that their's
wasa geat responsibility, in as much
as the mother, nine cases out of ten
hold the destinies of the child in her
own hands and showed conclusely by
several true and beautiful illustro,
tiona that first impressions were gener
ally'most lasting. But we are doing
injustice to the speaker in attempting
even an outline, as to have appreciat
ed it, one tlust have .heard him.
Their is such an earnestness of man
ner about hint that we are borne along
with his remarks almost unconscioisly.
There were other speeches made
also by the Rev. Geo. Boggs, Rev. J,.
A. Caut)ern, and Col. Finley. We
regret that we have neither time nor
space to give even a synopsis of their re
marks, sufice it to say they were very
appropriate and well received, after
the speaking was concluded and the
benediction oter,-dinner was annound~
ed, a procession was immediately
formed and condtieted to the tabile
which was as is usually siid (groaning
under the weight of good things.) But
in this instance Messrs. Editors we as
sure you it was literally true, the sup
ply was most bountiful (an army com
missary would have made it feqd a
whole brigade.) We never saw a
more magn ifoent pie pio dinner on any
occasion, all of the substantials with
many of the delicacies and hixuries of
life. It reniinded uis of the good old
times when peos and 4lenty, pros
