The Hiring; of N'rgrot*-Contracts Be?
tween the Planter* a.nd the Frccd
As such n thing as hiring all the
form hands has heretofore been un?
usual in this State, it viii manifestly
be to the interest of both the black
man and the white that a system of
rules and regulations be adopted, in
order that each porty may know his
duty and how to perform it; because,
if each one should labor when he or
she pleases, without regard to the
condition of the crop, it is probable
that nothing would be made, and both
parties would be losers. It is alway*
to the benefit of society and govern?
ment that nil its members act in con?
cert ?ind harmony, and work togethei
for each other's benefit. By so doing,
the whole community is enriched, the
general tone of society is elevated,
ennobled and purified, and the better
nciples of our nature govern our
fictions and direct our conduct. Here?
tofore, you, the blacks, have been
slaves with no responsibilities, and I
but?few cares. But now, as far as tho
whites are concornod, you assume the
duties of freemen, and it will become
you to begin from this day to study
in wliat manner you may best serv?
your own interests. To your em?
ployer, if he is just and kind to 3Tou,
be accommodating and obliging, and
so endeavor to discharge your part of
the contract, and to acquit yourself of
your duties a?s to leave no cause for
dissatisfaction on his part. By thus
doing, you will soon win a good name,
and your wages will'be proportionate?
ly higher. a
Col Davis, in charge of \he Freed?
men's Bureau at Clarkes ville, Tenn.,
has adopted the following:

regard to the contract or its regula- I
tions, between the employer and tlu> I
employee, the agent of the bureau i
for the oottiitv hall be tb" wnaua j
arbiter to whom the difficulty shall be !
The Southern Methodist Church is j
a special object of attack. Its posi- ?
tion is grossly, and wilfully, and con- j
staidly misrepresented. A specimen j
of this kind of thing is in the last j
issue of Harper's Journal of Civiliza- !
lion, (save the mark,) a paper devot- j
ing its pictorial talents to the promo- !
tion of civilization in the. same line- !
as the lower class of ' 'Life in Boston. ' |
NOAV, the Messrs. Harpers are Metho
dists, a?d ought to have known better
than to make a statement like the,
following in their editorial of Satur?
"Where do we find a 'proof of ac?
ceptance?' The Southern Methodist
Church separates from, the Northern
Methodist Church on the ground of
slavery: slavery is abolished by the
war. "Does the Southern Church ac?
cept the result? On the contrary, it
And the Methodist and the Christian
Advocate are weekly harping on the
Every -well informed person knows
that the above extract from Harper's j
Journal contains at least three dis-,
tinct statements or implications con?
trary to historic truth: 1. The South?
ern Church did not separate from the
Northern. 2. The ground of division j
was not merely shivery. 3. The
Southern Church did not refuse re
union. The Methodist Episcopal "j
Church in America divided by au afl
of its highest legislature -tho General !
Conference-in 1844, which act was !
passed by a body of which a majority
were Abolitionists, (.'an any man
deny that? Then, what an outrage is
it to stigmatize the Southern Church
as schismatic? Tho North separated
from ?'ne South, :> much as the South
did fr? >DQ tho North. Nor was slavery
the only difficulty. The Northern
Methodist i>reiichers had become po?
litical and social agitators; they sub?
stituted tl* commands of mon for the
law of God. There were for making
terms of membership not known to
Christ, or the Apostles, or the Holy
It is not true that the Southern
Church refused to re-units: No oller
has been, made them. No Northern i
General Conference has met, to make
the proposition,' .and no Southern
Conference to accept or reject. Let
i (lie world remember forever, what the
Northern Methodists seem exceeding?
ly anxious to have forgotten, that at
tho ?rst . meeting of the Southern
Church after its organization, it ap?
pointed one of its most venerable
clergymen to IK a fraternal messen?
ger to the Northern ?General Confer?
ence, and that conference absolutely
refused to have anything to do with
him or his credentials! Now, who
And since jeaee has come, the
Sbuthern Methodist Church has be?
haved with dignity, while tho North?
ern Methodist press bas teemed with
villification. Just before opening the
Harper from which we have quoted,,
there was laid ot our table a pamphlet
containing letfe?n of Dr. Deems and
Mr. Moran, of tko -J_?.?lhodist Church,
South. Thc* first of their produc?
tions has been pronounced ' 'scholar?
ly" by even the "Northern Methodists,
and the second t* certainly vigorous.'
Do these representative gentlemen
refuse to re-unite ? Not at all. Dr.
Deems calmly guard* his Northern
brethren against tlve very .things
which may prevent onion, and Mr.
Moran tells thoa how, ?us gentlemen
and Christians, that desirable end
mav be attained. -Neue York Neus.
