The Rev. C. C. Pinckney, pastor of
Grace Church, Charleston, S. C., de?
livered a sermon on New Year's day,
which, afc the request of the vestry,
was published in last Saturday's
Courier. "We take the following ex?
tract from the discourse, in relation
to the treatment of the freed people
"Remember their fidelity in the
past, and especially in the last four
years. Remember, that in all the
convulsions of war, and all the dia?
bolical stimulants applied to them,
they still retained their integrity.
When the male population was drafted
for the army, and our wives and
?children in every village of the South
"were entrusted to their care, let it be
remembered that in not a solitary
instance did our slaves ever prove
unfaithful to the trust-a fact which
?will redound to the credit of master
and servant in the pages of impartial
"historyr In all the changes of .the
past year they have been entirely
passive; nor have they ever stretched
forth their hands unlawfully to
snatch the coveted fruit of American
"Remember the mutual benefits
which we hs /e 1 > esto wed and received.
We have within the past century
transformed the most degraded
savages on earth into comparatively
industrious, civilized and Christian
people. We have imparted to them
systematically the Gospel of Jesus
Christ. There are more communing
members of the Church among the
slaves of America, than in all the
missionary stations which girdle that
dark Continent. These converted
heathen in the Southern States will
.compare in numbers ami education,
with all the fruits of contemporane?
ous Christian missions throughout
tho world. Let us still try to do
them good, according to our ability.
They depend upon us for occupation,
suppo.-t, legislation and moral tone.
They will soon recognize the obliga?
tions of a lower to a higher race. A
spirit of kindness should control our
"And we will need patience in deal?
ing with them. Sudden emancipation
lias turned their heads. Like boys
just out of school, tiny think only ol
play. To thc African mind, freedom
means exemption from labor. They
would enjoy that freedom. I doubt
if an educated or civilized race would
bear so sudden a transformation moro
"Stern necessity will teach even
these thoughtless children the need
of labor. Tho pangs of ]lunger will
enforce God's original decree, 'in
the sweat of thy brow thou shall oat
bread.' By a patient spirit we may
do much to encourage industry and
providence among this humblo class.
By wise legislation, by Christian
principles and Christian spirit, wc
may do much still to lielp and elevate
this dependant race as long as they
romain among ns. 'Bo not weary
in well doing, for in duo season
we shall reap if wo faint not,' is a
precept and promise we have applied
to the former relation of master and
slave, and the promise wo have seen
fully verified. There is equal need of
the principle now; in some future
day we may reap the promise."
The Grand Jury of Lafayette
County, Mississippi, havo found a
true bill against Gen. A. J. Smith, U.
S. A., for burning the court house
and other buildings in the town of
Oxford, in the summer of 18C4.
The Mexican (Question tn. France.
PARIS, January 5.-The precise
text of the Emperor's reply to the
congratulations of the Corps Diplo?
matique, on New Year's Day, address?
ed to him by the Papal Nuncio in the
nam? of all the other foreign minis?
ters, did not appear in the Moniteur,
until after my letter of Tuesday last
had been posted. There was no doubt
about the peaceful nature of its ten?
dency, but as the words of a man
like the Emperor Napoleon are known
to be well freighted and full of mean?
ing, the public is never quite satisfied
until it has them placed officially be?
fore it in print. The Emperor's lan?
guage was brief, but pointed. What
he said amounted, in fact, to this:
That, looking back on the past and
forward to the future, he felt happy
in the thought of dangers avoided,
apprehensions removed, people and
rulers united more closely; happy es?
pecially in the thought that "past ex?
periences permitted him to augur for
the world long days of peace and
prosperity. " There can bo no doubt
about such language or its menuing.
It moans a preference and an impulse
given to the peaceful pursuits of in?
dustry, commerce, and universal ex-.
hibitions over the viasteful and ex?
pensive indulgence in an ambitions
and aggressive policy. And in so
speaking, it must be allowed that Na?
poleon, however great and despotic
may be his authority, made himself
the mouth-piece of the nation, and
spoke like a ruler elected by the po?
pular will. I believe that at this
moment there is no conflict on which
the French Government could enter;
no, not even oue for the "boundaries
of the Rhine," which would meet
with the national assent, or be heartily
supported by the voice of tho people.
The one single blot upon the fair
face of the unfolding new year as it
rises into view, is the Mexican expe?
dition, and the "uncomfortable"-to
use no stronger word-relations which
it keeps up between the people of
the two countries, in all other re?
spects so amicably disposed. It is
the couchemar, the night-mare of the
French mind, and is openly expressed
as such. Au eminent French capi?
talist, largely engaged in commercial
and other enterprises, came to me
the other nay, to ask me whether I
really attached any weight to the re?
cent exaggerated rumors of serious
misunderstandings between this coun?
try and America, and went away ap?
parently greatly relieved when I told
him, what I believe to be the case,
that the Governments of Paris and
Washington, instead of "misunder?
standing," perfectly "understand"
each other. The other day, at tho
Tuileries, the Emperor addressed and
conversed with the American Minis?
ter in a marked manner, and for an
unusual length of time. Now, I do
not profess to give you the precise
text of what he said, and which has
not been published in the Moniteur,
but I know that the language used to
the representative of America, in
particular, was as satisfactory in all
respects as that addressed to Europe
and the rest of the world in general.
; Speaking of this subject, this morn?
ing, the Debate remarks that every
ground of uneasiness in Europe seems
to have disappeared. In America, it
says the case is different; nor can ap?
prehension cease as long as the occu
: pation of Mexico lasts. If, it adds,
the country has hailed with legitimate
; satisfaction the pacific language of
the Emperor on the 1st instant, it is,
I above all, because "that language is
regarded as a pledge of the speedy
return of the troops from Mexico."
I have cited tho above chiefly to
show how continually the public
mind in France runs upon this source
of apprehension, and how eager it is
to be freed from it. The sentiments
expressed publicly by the Emperor,
in conjunction with those addressed
more privately to Mr. Bigelow, leave
no doubt that the desired expectations
will soon be realized, if no fortuitous
or imprudent impediment lie thrown
in the way.-Ow. Newark Advertiser,
NEW DODGE.-A robbery took place
at Chattanooga lately, which, if the
facts are stated correctly, is one of the
most extraordinary on record. Two
j men, named Bass and Williams, pre
. tending to be detectives from Colum
! bus, Georgia, persuaded a lieutenant
j of the military guard to furnish them
I assisslance, went to the Crutchfield
House, dragged several gentlemen
out of bed, carried them to the guard
house, plundered them of over $2,000
in money, watches, etc., and kept
them locked up that night, and the
next day started South. The affair is
undergoing investigation before the
SENSTELE. -A North Carolina editor
of a weekly paper gets off tho follow
; ing salutatory: "In assuming the
I coltrol of the lianne?', I bring very
little into it, and I expect to take
I veiy little out of it. But I shall try
I to make a substantial, readable and
I reliable paper.
