Annual Meeting of the Saluda
The Saluda Association held iff-" sixty
fourth annual meeting at Shadj Grove
Church, Calhoun, Anderson .District, on
Friday, Saturday and Sunday last. This
body is ono of tho most ancient Baptist
Associations? t he State, having been con?
stituted in the year 1802. Its early his?
tory ispeculiarly interesting, embracing,,
as it does, the times of those-good old fath?
ers of the Church, Rector, Yahdiverc,
' Williams, ITembree and Chasteon. It for?
merly included within its bounds most of
the Baptist Churches in Anderson, Abbe
" villo, Pickens and Greenville, but the form?
ation-of various otherbodies arising out
of the increase of population and the
spread o&Baptist doctrinss, have reduced
its geographical bounds to. Anderson and
the upper part of Abbeville Districts, in?
cluding a'fcv churches in Greenville. It
is no\v a very large, intelligent, and libernl
body, fully worthy of its past history and"
its noble hearted founders. Its officers
for the present year were Rev. J. Scott
jVIurray Moderator,'Kev. B. F. Mauldin
Clerk and Capt. John C. Griffin Assistant
Clerk.and Treasurer. The business por?
tion of its proceedings were harmonious
' ly and satisfactorily transacted, and wcro
concluded on Saturday.
At nine o'clock on Sunday morning, a
Sunday "School meeting was held, which
was addressed hf Col. C. J. J^Iford, of
Greenville,. S.C. We will say nothing of
the moritsof this address, save that ic was
listened to until it* close with deep atten?
tion by the immense audience to whom it ?
was delivered, and the opinion was freely
cxpresse??ihat anineroaseu interest wi the
work of Sunday School;! would result
from tho meeting.
After the Sunday School meeting the
regular religious services of the day were
observed?.* Tho first sermon b.lng by
Rev. JonepK Chai< bliss, frow lAic text, J
u Beiievo in the Lord Jesus Christ,; and j
thou shalt be saved." This was a most
eloquent and masterly effort and com?
manded the profoundestattention of the
audience* As the speaker told of his
being' charged, by a dying soldier at
Chickaruauga,-with bearing these words
to his friends in South Carolina, and call?
ed ijpon those present to heed this nies
sage, coming to them alike from Heaven,
tbrough^gbd's word, and from tho grave,
through the dying soldier, his audience
yielded their justly claimed sympathy,
and attested the power of tho truth by
many ? sincere and feeling tear.
The Charity Sermon was preached by
Rev. David Simmpns, one of the veterans
of the Baptist pulpit in the. upper part of
tho State, who chose for his subject the
universal and peaceful reign of the Saviour
upon earth. It was ploasant to listen to
this good bid man. In a simple, but fer?
vid and eloquent st}-^, he portntyed the
blessings of the coming reign of the Prince
of Pcaodj and with a potency of argument
that showed a'clear and familiar acquain?
tance with tho truths of holy writ, he ad?
duced tho prophecies and proofs of that
future reign, and then with faithful yot
loving words, he strove to make the peo?
ple of the Lord feel the duty of' working
for and pnvying for that blessed consum?
mation.' To hearts all aweary, as were
those of his audience, with the trials and
sorrows of a long and cruel war. the words
of promised peace came like the balm of
Gilead; and wo.trust that tho wise and
jge'ptlc lessons of the preacher will have a;
hallowed influence upon the hearts which
still rock on the dying waves of tha
wild storm which has just pissed over us.
It is, thought that there were from
2500 to 3000, persons present at tho As?
sociation. We had no means~ of ascer?
taining the number, but it looked to us
like everybody was there. .
During the morning exorcises preach?
ing was attended to for the colored per?
sons^ the mooting house, by Col. A.
The intermission for refreshments pass?
ed off as usual, with the interchange of
kind aod neighborly courtesies, the dis?
cussion oi the sermons, crops, and tho
coming election for the Convention, and
a little occasional flirtation between the
"younger members of the sexes. The sub?
stantial part of these exercises gavo ample
proof of tho abundance of food in the land,
and of the warmhearted and-generous
hospitality of tho citizens of the vicinity.
. After dinner, preaching was resumed
at the stand by tho Bev. Hewlett S.
Moore. "We .wore pi*eventod ? from hear?
ing this discourse, and so we cannot spoalc
of its subject or merits, but from tho well-*
known ability ?and eloquence of the speak?
er, we have no doubt of its being a suc?
At the same time that preaching was
going on at the stand in the aftorrioonj
.the colored persons present assr uoled in
the meeting house, and were conducting
religious exercise peculiar and suitable to
themselves in a very decent, becoming
and interesting man nor. The house was
closely thronged, and the -windows and J
doors were packed with those who could
not obtain admittance. "While these ex?
ercises were?t their height, some person,
said to be one of their own color, made
his way into the back <pnd of the house,
with the fearful announcement that some?
body was about to set fire, tt> the build?
ing and bar up the doors and windows
and consume all within. What <rave rise
to this, no one can imagine. c Doubtless,
it had its origin from the Prince "of Dark?
ness, though there were hints that the
hallucination arose from the too free use.
of the distilled product of the present'
abundant preach crop. But no matter
as to the cause, tho effect was tremendous;
the scene that followed beggars^ descrip?
tion. Prom every door ay/l window,
without waiting for a benediction or for
each other, in tumultuous confusion, head
over heels, and heels overjiead. and with
wild dwmay upon their faces, forth pour?
ed the dense throng of six hundred freetl
mcn, over fences, over stone walls, over
graves, over carriage tongues, over wag?
ons, over one another, at their highest i
speod, forth and onward they lied, radia?
ting in all directions, "any where, any
where," away from the threatened dan.
ger. Panic-strifken and half demented,
many could not be got to stop or look
back, but ran until out of sight. An hour'
after, wo overtook an old aunt)-dragging
her weary limbs towards home, who ac?
costed us with the question, " Boss is de
meetinghouse done'burn down yet!'" I
saw one who had sprained both ankles.
? One old color?d woman, weighing about
300 pounds, leaped through a window as
nimbly'as a squirrel, and alighted sound
and unhurt, eviuving such capacity for
speed as no one seeing her in quiet life
would for a moment imagine. I heard
thatanother hud her ami brokAi and that
others still were injured. Though the
scene was ludicrous to behold and to nar?
rate, yet It was a cruel and wicked trick,
qnd its author riclfly deserves to be pun?
This scene broke tip the order and in

each seeking his own happy hearth and
The Love of Flowers.?No man can
cultivate too earnestly a hearty love for
flowers. We may not measure tho value
of them as -we meas'vrc merchandise, for
the influence flowing from them is ethere?
al and intangible; yet not more'necesSaiy
is pure air to a healthy growth and broad
development of body, than in a loving
communion witlfthese 'sweet thoughts
of God,' needful for all truo up-building
and expansion of the mind. The notion
that it is a weak and feminine thing, a
thing for woman and children?to inter?
est one's self in flowers, is utterly /also.
One of the most humanizing, and there?
fore noblest things in the world, is a de?
vout, studj- of these beautiful work of God.
There are granite peaks, .lifting them?
selves bare and bald with forbidding as?
pect, which, though clothed with gran?
deur, arc nevertheless the unlovclicst ob?
jects in nature. Thero are other peaks
wnieh have as much majesty, yet nestled
in whoso rifts- and climbing up whose
sides many colored flowers unfold their
beauty, and,by their soft hr.es"relicvo tho
sternness of the dull, harsh rock. He is
the truest man whose character thus com?
bines strength and conciliating tender?
ness?whesj principles are firm ?s moun?
tains, yet at the same time are adorned
by the verdure of a gentle charity. From
no source can man gather gentle thoughts
and unpolluted feelings is from inter?
course with flowers'. If the Infinite is
even turning from tho caro of circling
worlds to the adornment of tho violet,
surely it cannot be beneath the dignity of
man to follow his Maker with a reverent
step, and learn the lessons which he has
written for him in the Immblest flower.
,The Emperor Joseph, of Austria, is re?
ported to have submitted to his popular
assembly a law giving the. women of his
empire a right to vote. He is evidently
more susceptible to the fascinating charms
of the sex than was his predecessor, the
Joseph of old."
I Yielding to the Inevitable.
Tl;e following quaintly told passage of
personal history, extracted from -tho
"Lives of the Lord Chancellors of Eng..
land," has a moral adapted to these
"The Lord Keeper, the Marquis of Win?
chester, being in his 07th year, and about
to die, was asked 'how he did bear up in
these dangerous times, wherein great al?
terations were made, both in Church and
State V he returned the noted answer?
'.'By being "a willow and not; all oak."
?This pithy answer contains much
worldly wisdom, and may be turned to
advantage in these troublous times.?
The facile alertness with which the
crafty, time-serving courtier changes his
opinions and principles to accomplish his
fielfish purposes, is greatly repugnant to
the raiud impressed with strong and ear?
nest convictions. This is sheer profliga?
cy, and is altogether different from that
calm wisdom which instructs us to avoid
what we cannot encounter without inju?
ry, and to sacrifice what we can no longer
retain without the loss of other interests
of greater value, lie who has seen great
oaks, the growth of centuries, snapped
like twigs and swept away before tho
resistless tornado, while" the delicate osier
remained fresh, green and uninjured, can
appreciate the significance and aptness of
the old nobloman's figure.
As the oak that matches its strength
against the storm will- inevitably fair, so
the man who opposes his single will, how?
ever strong his single courage, however
daring, to tho collective force of a mighty
multitude sweeping on to its- appointed
destiny, will surely be crushed. . But the
oak cannot bend, the willow cannot stiff?
en itself. Man, endowed with varied ca?
pabilities, can, if he will, accommodate
himself to the pressure of circumstances.
Iu this he may learn usoful lessons, even
from the interior animals, who excrciso
the instincts and powers with which na?
ture has endowed them. Naturalists tell
us of a fish which eludes pursuit by dark?
ening the water with a fluid which it gen?
erates and ejects. We have all heard of
that inoffensive animal the armadilla,
which, when attacked, rolls itself into a
ball, thus presenting to its assailant ? sur?
face of impenetrable armor-. Every child
has read of the porcupine,* which'conceal?
ing its vulnerable parts, darts its poiutcd
quills against the enemy.' Our own obser?
vation has taught us that on the approach
of Storms many beasts seek places of
safety and that fowls retire to their
roosts. A universal instinct teaches these
creatures to shun dangors they cannot
resist. .Man not only possesses instinct
bat isgiltcd with icason?and shall he act
with less discretion than brutish beasts ?
To adapt ourselves to surrounding circum?
stances is not only a .mark of good sense,
but it is a high duty.
The varying circumstances in which
men arc placed are as the varying coun?
tries through whie.h the traveler passes.?
Ho must conform himself to these chang?
ing, circumstances as the traveler con?
forms his apparel and his habits and man?
ners to the climate and to the customs of
the various countries throuffi which he
passes. We read that in Greenland, one
day and one night make up ? the year,
each being ofthe duration of six months.
It is also said that.tho inhabitants live
chiefly upon the blubber of tho whalq,
and upon fish oil. JSow the sojourner in
Greenland would fare badly who should
refus? to sleep in the day time and to eat
the blubber and drink the oil when there
was-nothing else to eat and drink. In
Australia, called by Sidney Smith ."that
land of kangaroos and convicts," the
winter months arc May, Juno and July.
Tho traveller who should refuse to put
on his winter apparel for the unsatisfac?
tory reason tl at ho was accustomed in
his country to wear it in December, Jan?
uary and February, would be pretty cer
taiu to contract a pleurisy.
The moral of these simple illustrations
is obvious and the application easy. In
the providence of G?d, the condition, cir?
cumstances and relations ofthe Southern
people havo been entirely changed. Tho
situation in which thoy are now placed is
novel and full of difficulties. By an un-t
reasoning obstinacy they may make that
situation too grievous to be borne. On
the other hand, by patience, tract ability
and compliance, they may lighten their
present burdens and ultimately procure a
release from the heaviest of them. For?
tunately their good j?ense has led them
into this latter course. They have chos?
en wisely. Let them be tho "willow" and
not tho "oak."

Assuming that Governor Perry has
rightly exercised his authority, in calling
for an election of members to a Conven?
tion to -which it will bo allotted to re-or?
ganize the State and for a general revis?
ion of "the Constitution, then it occurs to
us that a most profound and apathetic in?
difference, prevails throughout tho State,
in regard to this object. Whether it iff
that the effect of the late revolution in
' our affairs has had the offect of stunning
,tho p'opujar mind?whether it is that tho
necessities of the household and the indi?
vidual have put all political objects en?
tirely out of the people's head?or wheth?
er all sympathy with politics, of whatever
kind, has been crushed out by th% over?
throw of the fondly entertained political
faith of fifty years?it matters not; the
faot is, nevertheless, unquestionable, that,
so far as we have seen, the public mind
takes but little interest in any politics,
and exhibits no sort of activity or even
sensibility in respect to an election which
is to hold, within its results, an entirely
new political organization for' the coun?
try. On former occasions, in a matter so
vitajly interesting, public meetings would
have been held at all the court houses, on
sale or other public days, and there would
probably have been a popular nomination
of a ticket including the. preferred names
of the community. At present, if an
election takes place at all, it is destined to
be a scrub race. There arc really no
candidates?no parties seek represcnta.
tives?and it is very unKkcly that many
votes wili Ho taken. Tfio parties elected
may or may not be good'men and true.?
They are just; as likely to be worthless.
All seem indifferent to the result. The
question occurs to. us, "Is this right or
wise ?" If our people are. to live in this
country, then it behooves them to sec that
the control of the country does not fall
into the hands of the vicious Or the worth?
less. . The' members of the seceding Con,
vontion, the members of the Confederate
Congress, and the State Legislatures, are,
we believe excluded from place in the Con?
vention. This exclusiot- operates serious?
ly against the picked men of this country.
It denies us the use of many of ocr finest
minds. Can we find substitutes for these? .
Are there not men to be found, in all the
districts, not liable to tho objection, who
are yet capable of the'duties and to bo
trusted in the situation T And is it not
the dut}- of the people to seek out such
men, in every pi'ccmct, and assure them?
selves of the best capacities for legisla?
tion that the country may still possess ?
Such is our opinion. We should not
show a reckless disregard of the future,
because ot. the misfortunes and disap?
pointments of the past.
Let our people therefore in. all the dis?
tricts, proceed promptly and unitedly, to
an examination ih|p their social and in?
tellectual resources, in order to their em?
ployment in tho organization of the State
anew, anil to the future legislation under
it. We need, in the Convention especial?
ly, the best legal and judicial minds?men
conversant with all the nice discrimina?
tions of- law?conversant with political .
definitions and constitutions, and capa?
ble of weighing well the import of evcry
sontenco which is uttered. The Govern?
ment of the United States can only re?
quire of as a Republican form of Consti- (
tution,'and the model for this is to be
found in the Constituion of those States,
whose, characteristics, policy and. people,
most resemble our own.
In the choice of these jnon, while we
may prefer many who aro excluded by
reason of the exceptions made in the
Presidential * proclamations ' of amnesty. ?
let us not insist upon them; but, avoid?
ing all occasions for cavjl, let us turn to
others of our citizens, such as we think,
from their goneral moral high tone,
known virtues and superior intellect, may
be rcjied upon for the duty, and cast our
votes for them with all possiblo -una?
The Now York Post says, "We have
favored and still favor the substitution of
civil for military government for all the
States lately in rebellion. We believe it
is better that tho people of each State
shall have the responsibility thrown upon
thorn of re-establishing law and order and
liberty in their own communities. But
they ought cloarly to understand that if
they refuse or aro unable to do. this duty,'"
they will compel tho General Govern?
ment to step in and do it for them."-?
This doesn't seem unreasonable.
A young girl said to her mother, "Ma,
don't you think that Sam Flint asked me
to-day if he might not come a courting
of me." "And what aid you say to the
impudent fellow?" "Oh, I.told him he
might come, if he was a mind to, because
you see I wanted to see how the fool
would act." . . .
The Negro Population.
The Black Republican,. a paper very
well edited by a black clergyman at New
Orleans; contain? a correspondence be?
tween a committee ofthe Freedincn and
the editor, on the prospects of the black
' population of the South. From the'reply
of the editor wo copy the following para-,
Tiro colored man and whito man can?
not live together in this country; the}'
must and will have to separate, unless the"
Congress of the nation shall give them-a
place to themselves,- for as it was with
Abraham and Lot, so it is with us,, the
sooner>we seek a home for our rising gen?
eration, the better it will be for us.
Our ?nal destiny, as far as I can dimly,
see, is that in three hundred years it will
be a rare thing to sec a colored man in
this country. Like the Indian, our race in
this country is destined to become extinct,
unless wo move to ourselves. And after
wo shall have obtained the right of suf?
frage, I shall strongly advocate a treaty
stipulation between the United Slates and
our race, whereby we may live under the
United States flag, but be apart to our?
selves, and" even then we would become
dissatisfied, for there is no historian that
can.point out an instance where two na?
tions have ever lived together happily.
One power must rule, and the other
will not be pleased ; and if we don't sep?
arate in less than-' throe hundred years
the colored man in this country will bo a
color between the Gajutdian'Indian and
the inhabitants of India. This country,
gentlemen, is not ours in my opinion, and
as the question has been asked by? party
of frecdmcn, the above is my answer to
the same. I could write a work on this
subject had I the means to put it in cir?
The immigration of the white race from
Europe must increase, whilst the immigra?
tion of the black race must decrease, as
the~slave trade has been stopped, and the
result is the African race in this country
will finally run out, and all the property
we may accumulate for our rising gene?
ration will avail us nothing unless" we ob- ,
tain a resting place of our own. Mere-'
ever, experience teaches that no two races
can live, together happily under one flag,
when they both are. properly educa?
ted. Therefore, gentlemen, ray impartial
opinion is; that this country is not our

tho former owner, having exhibited a
contract, and there being'no evidence of

from his home, and therefore is only en?

.Bishop Andrew, of the M. E. Church,
is laboring to maintain the organization
ofthat body. He issued, the following
circular at Selma, Alabama, on tho 5th :
" I expect. God willing, t? meet the
Bishops of the ..'Methodist Episcopal
Church South, at Cojumbus. Ga., on tho
10th of August next. ? We wish the an?
nual conferences to meet at their appoint?
ed places, during the approaching fall
and winter, and to elect their delegates
to a general conference, to nice I on the
first of April next?-the place to be pub?

ported in many, places that the Church
South is entirely disorganized and dead,
and that somo of our friends arc prepar?
ing to administer on her effects. To all
such we say sho still lives, and believes
herself capable of managing her own af?
fairs. Our operations have been hindered
during the -war, but now, through God's
mercy, we have peace, and propose to re

ing scriptural holiness through these
