flow many persons die who know
but little of love except through their
intellectual poiver-. Love is the
crowiniig grace oflitmnnityi and the
golden liik which binds one fond
lieat to another. When love pie
sides, lie restless fea-s of many
sleeploss nights are forgotten in a
"penCee which the world can neither
give no: tOke awny ." Coleridge
describes lovn as an absorption of Pelf

When a woman loves tenderly and

the world, and her sliitibbrh at'o bo

he sinks into an untimely grave, none
knowing the ca;e which has blighted
her happiness ; but this shoulti never
be the case, "for it is botter to hitve
loved and lost thane never to have
loved at all.'s Woman was made to
be loved, and it is nothing more than
natuial that she ihould expect to be
in every instance, for she was givei
to a man as an belpmate, and it is his
d ut y to protect and provide for her. A
true woman can never love a wanwhom

will be blasted, and when "poverty
comes in at the door love will fly out

together all formality mist be throwh
aside, and friendship is kindled into a
warmer feeling, and soon love is
generated ; for under whatever cir
cumistances huian nature is placed,
it will be human nature still. "Na
tural love only is blind ; spiritual
love dwells with wisdon,"' and it is
here where love exists, for they only
love truly who love wisely.

The following is Vn ectrnt. from

to the grand jury of Pickens County.
delivered on Mondav last :
Since November, '1868, when your

seven bills of indietment haind ed to
the grand jury by the solicitor itp to
the p-reent term of the court-three

these statistics, by an equal popula.

Yours are preAeminently a law-abid

order and prosperty pervades as a
result in your botders. No disquiet,
alarm or interference with your usual
avocations iave overtaken you. The
contrast here, with the situation pre
vailing in several of the counties of

gratifying to you. However men

should, as an individual, say it was,
in my j udgement, a necessity-it is
very certain that the counties that

You have been taxed more bc:vilv
for three yea'rs past than ever before,
and complaints are made in many
quarters that larger sums are collect

justify, -and charges are preferred
that there is not a faithful disbursing
or accounting for the cullesor anJ
it is recoinmended in som quarters
thit the people should refuse to pay
the taxes imposed for the fiscal year
ending 15th Jaulary next. Such
advice in my opinion is ill.judged
and wil! werk out pernicious results.

Live mnlcasance-and the only safe
and legitimate remiedy.-is the lallot
box, It may be slow and embarrass
ing, but,soouer or later, evils whichi
may be subjects of just complaint will
there be corrected. But the man or
community who tundertakes to oppose
the laws of the State under which
they live, by force or violence, will
surely come to grief ; they will mdst
certainly find the arm of even an ob- I
noxious law stronger than their best
concerted oppocition, until repeal d
by competent authority.
As law abiding citizens you will, T am
sure, hesitate long before you rcslvc
to resist the tax laws passed b.'y the
Legislature, whether you thIink them
opprc.sive or otherwise. ii' thle pul
lie oflicers charged with collectinlg
and disbursing the public funds have
been guilty of fraud or peculation, let
their mnisdeeds be ferreted out, and
the guilty brought to punishmuent.

that lisa asailant is "'a thief," it is
not nurpr-ising that an attempt, how

But the operation er the bill should
be confined to tho memb ers of thle Gen..

session, and, ifthe penalty could lie
changed to a stoppage of the per diem
of the offenders, the new Blue law
might he regarded as a public bless

accustomed to the seretre profanity of
