. 'It is written, my houae is the houso of
prayer, but ye have made it a den of
th loves." It is a desecration to uno the
house of worship for publie purposes
whereby mouey is made, such as leotures
ou various subjects, concerts, fairs,
Christmas trees, &o. The venerable
speaker raised bis voice in utter condem?
nation of all suoh practices, and Binoore

Reverence for God's houe >, he grieved
to Bay, was boooming less and less. He
has seen ministers of the Gospel so far
forgetful of the saorednoss of the boase
of God as to put their hats on as soon as
they leaye the pulpit, or even the com?
munion table. They would show more
reap cot in General Grant's house, human
and faulty as ho is. Remember that
the new ohurch is to be kept pure aud
clean, and let your oonduot always be
reverent. Tho ohuroh is no placo for
gossip, or to ask questions concerning
the orops, or acquaintances, or politics,
or the news; but enter it with reverence,
SB Hoses took off his shoes in the holy
place. Walk to your seat, kneel devout?
ly, and always remember that you have
como there to meet the Lord Jesus, and
treat him with due respect. Lot not the
eloquence or ability of any minister be
your reason for attending this church,
and never forget that you meet in the
name of the Lord Josue Christ, and not
in the name of any mortal man. Me?
thodism has been running down io mnny
of these matters of late years, and is
suffering fearful losses. The time has
oome for us to start ancv. Do not come
here to gossip and frollo, but bo sensible;
oome to think and feel and pray, and
God Almighty will come down, and the
pontaeostal days will oome again upon
us all. My desire is, ere these trembling
limbs are laid in the coffin and consigned
to the silent tomb, to Bee those days re?
turning. Paul says, whether we be be?
side ourselves, it is to God. If these
people were beside themselves, it was
not insanity, it was to God. And now
I commend you to God. I shall never
see you all again in this world, but I
shall never forget Columbia. Though
South Carolina did not give me birth,
yet she gave me a living place until I
entered the university. I have been a
traveling preacher for sixty-six years and
nine months, and am ready to spend
and be spent in the service of my Lord
and Master. God Almighty bless you
all, and enable you to work worthy of
the high Galling in Christ Jesus. If you
live as you ought to do, you will find
there is no ebb tido in your Christian
experience, but ono steady, onward flow
from conversion until doatb. There is
no suoh thing as shrinking grace, but
only the never-changing love of tho
? Lord Jesus Christ.
Hey. Wm. Martin read the following
hymn, which was effectively rendered
by the ohoir:
When to the exiled seer was given
A rapt'roas foregaze into Heaven,
All glorious though the visions were,
Yet he behold no temple there.
The New Jerusalem on high,
Hath one pervading sanctity;
No sin to mourn, no grief to mar,
God and the Lamb its templo are.
But we, frail sojourners below,
The pilgrim heirs of guilt and woe,
Mast seek a tabernacle'where
Our s cutter'd souls may blend in prayer.
O, Thou who o'er the cherubim
Didst shine in glories veil'd and dim,
With purer light our temple eheer,
And dwell in un veil'd glory here.
Rev. Sidi H. Browne then offered tho
Almighty aud everlasting God, thou
art infinite iu all thy perfections, and
marvelous io all thy works. Thou hast
made the world and all things therein;
und seeing that thou art Lord of heaven
and earth, thou dwellest not in temples
made with bands: thoa art a Spirit, and
art worshipped iu sphlt and in truth, in
all places of thy domiuion; yet we thank
thee that thou dost allow ns to build
houses for thy service?, wherein thy
people may attend upon thee without
distraction. We bless thy holy name
for putting it into the hearts of thy peo?
ple to build a house, at this place, for
thy worship. We beseeoh thee to in?
spiro us with zeal, that wo may both
have a mind to the work, and may suc?
cessfully accomplish the same. Muy
neither adversary nor evil ocourreut
hinder this work; but may the good hand
of our God be upon us, that in due time
we may bring forth the head-stone with
joy and praise. May this BU no tua ry,
when completed, long remain a house of
prayer for all people, where incense shall
be offered unto thy name, and a pure
offering, and thy word and ordinance
Bhallbe duly administered, aeoompanied
by the influences of the Holy Ghost.
Here may multitudes be born again, and
be nurtured in knowledge and piety;
BO that they may be prepared, in the
kingdom of thy grace, for nobler wor?
ship in the kingdom of thy glory. We
are unworthy, O Lord, through our
manifold sins, to offer thee any sacrifice;
yet we beseeoh thee to accept this our
bounden duty and service, not weighing
oar merits, but pardoning our offences,
through Joana Christ our Lord; by whom
and with whom, in tho nnity of the Holy
Ghost, all honor and glory be unto theo,
Father Almighty, world without end.
Rev. Manning Brown read several ap?
propriate passages of Scripture. Rev.
Lovick Fierce then placed the hermoti
oally-sealod box in the cavity prepared
for it, a marble cover was placed over it,
and the following prayer pronounced:
We lay the corner-stone of a houso to
be built and set apart, from all worldly
uses, for divine worship, in tho name of
the Fathor, and of the Son, and of the

A. J. Ransier, the oolored Lientenont
Govornor of South Carolina, and Chair?
man of tho Republican Stato Exocutive
Committee, publishes a letter in the
Charleston News, strongly opposing the
proposed declaration of martial law.
Ho thinks tho oivil powers amply suffi?
cient to ropress existing disorders, and
that martial law, as a remedy, would be
worse than the disease.
THE COMINO WAR IN EUBOPE.-Mr.
Schuylor, the United States Minister at
St. Petersburg, wrote, not long since, to
Mr. Fish : 1 'Tho officers of tho army aro
said to be nearly unanimous in favor of
Franco aud of a war with Germany, and
I know of several occasions where toasts
have boen drank to tho ruin of Gor?
mans." Tho most extensive militury
preparations are goiog on both in Russia
and Germany. Ono cause of tho irrita?
tion between thc countries is tho state of
the Russian Baltic provincos, which are
inhabited by Germans. Tho Muscovite
Government has for years sought to in?
troduce tho Russian language and laws
among these people, and tho effort has
been as steadily opposed. It is known
that tho Cabinot of Berlin has favored
this opposition, and, in consequence, a
very bud fooling has been brought into
THE UNITED STATES SENATE.-On
March 4th, 1873, twenty-four seats in
tho United States Senate will become
vacant by the expiration of the torm of

RADICAL MACHINERY FOB CARRYING
EIIBOTIONS.-The Washington Patriot
asserts that the olorka and of?oials in the
Government service there are forced to
join dabs representing their several
States, and that these olnbs are part of
the Radical machinery for carrying elec?
tions. Tho members are ezpeoted to
voto at all local elections in Washington,
aud OIHO to go home and vote again in
tho States they come from. In addition,
thoy aro regularly assessed a pnrccntugo
upon their salaries for election purposes,
and this per centnge in to bo deducted
from their pay on tho lat of Sopiorubor.
Tho Patriot adds: "It is notorious that
tho sumo system has been adopted
throughout tho country. Ileuce, the
pooplo uro not only taxed for the sup?
port of thousands of needless nnd in?
competent ofiico-holdcrs, but funds thus
misapplied uro used to prevent tiny re?

When Grunt wns nominated in 1868,
Gen. Frank Blair said that, if oleotod, he
would use the army and navy to perpe?
tuate his power. It is now proved that
Blair was right. Grant was lately asked
by a newspaper oorrespoudout, in con?
versation on tho recent election in North
Carolina, "What would you have done if
North Carolina hud not satisfied Repub?
lican anticipations?" and the answer was,
"I have the power under tho Ku Klux bill
lo have made her." That infamous enact?
ment was mada for tho sole purpose of
enabling Grant, tinder cover of tho forms
of law, to re-elect himself-though the
bill itself is openly and notoriously in
violation of tho Constitution.

MARVELOUS ESCAPE OF THIS OLD TOWN
FROM COMPLETE DESTRUCTION.-On Ba*
turday night last, a little before 10
o'clock, oar community was surprised
and alarmed by cries of "Fire!" The
ohuroh bells rang oat wildly, and in a
few minutes tho wholo male population,
white and block, was gathered around
the barning building. This was tho long
and roomy stablo bolongiug to tho hotel,
tho proporty and residence of 8. S.
Tompkins, Esq., and standing imme?
diately in rear (about forty-fivo foot from
it) of tho largo two-story wooden build?
ing owned by Capt F. Li. Smith, but oc?
cupied by Mr. M. A. Murkort as a work?
shop aud undertaker's rooms. Tho sta?
blo was rented by Mr. Walls, who runs
a hack between this and Pine House De?
pot. When tho Uro broko out there
wero iu the stablo four horses and throe
or four vehicles belonging to Mr. Walls,
also a considerable quantity of fodder.
Tho horses and vehicles were promptly
rescued, though not without considera?
ble peril to tho rescuers, tho fire having
spread almost throughout tho entire
building, liy the timo tho crowd assem?
bled the stuhle was totally past redemp?
tion, and tho only thought was to save
Mr. Markert's shop. Tho said building
stauds on tho buck street, olmost'in roar
of, and extremely near, tho long row of
stores commonly kuowu as Park Bow.
Had it caught fire, tho wholo public
squaro of Edgofiold would hayo benn in?
evitably doomed to dostrnction. Tho
wind blow tho flames directly against it,
while showers of huge ciudors were
borne aloft, falling, ns thick as hail, upon
tho roofs of Park Kow, upon tho Adver?
tiser oflieo, aud upon tho drug store of
Murkert Sc Clisby. Every merchant in
town expected to seo his -storeroom and
his goods consumed iu a few hours. The
tremendous rains of Friday night had
so thoroughly saturated tho shingles,
however, that they withstood it all.
Aud to this fact, no loss than tho bravo
work of our citizeus, while and black,
must bo attributed the saving of our
public square. The scene was a wild
i and startling one for Edgofiold. Tho
j content:- of Mr. Markert's shop, consist?
ing for the most part of coffins of various
sizes and styles, and also a hearse, had
been hastily moved out, and those lyiug
about tho squaro, or leaning against tho
chains of the Park fence, gave to the oc?
casion, as tho flames glared upon thom,
a very weird and tragic character. But
many people worked wisely and unre?
mittingly, and tho building was saved
and with itali tho business part of Evlgo
field. And most of theso peopie who
worked so well were freedmen. It bas
become rather the custom of tho prosent
day to publicly praise tho efforts of tho
colored people on such occasions as the
ono we desoribo. But in this caso we
mean no conventionality and no stuff.
Tho conduct of tho colored pooplo wus
simply as bravo, as noble, and as unself?
ish as it oould bc. Thoy worked with a
vim and cheerfulness which" was alto?
gether spontaneous, and which had no
motivo but that of doing right. And a
pleasant fact to note, was that a number
of colored men who may bo called lead?
ers hereabouts, were not tho least promi?
nent in setting a good ex-implo. And
even a few colored women rushed in and
made themselves conspicuously uaoful.
Ono-Eliza Simkius by nama-lugged
such quantities of water, and so unre?
mittingly, that she may well bo culled
hereafter "the firo engine."
And now tho other side of tho picture.
Aftor tho danger and suspense were
over, came tho fun. The blacks, who
had behaved so well-and had so forcibly
called to mind their old timo faithfulness
during tho war-were almost literally
bathed in whiskey. In fact, both white
and black needed it strongly. Tho
Messrs. Durisoo and Markeri Sc Clisby
sent forth tho fluid in buckets aud tubs,
and for ouco iu our life wo saw whiskoy
go begging. And after tho whiskey
carno tho d.mce, tho song and tho gene?
ral jollification. Upon tho wholo, it was
au extremely rousing night in this dull
As to tho origin of the fire, the gene?
ral opinion is that it was caused by tho
carelessness und inattention of those
who frequented tho stablo. Tho loss of
Major Tompkins is estimated at $81)0 or
01,000; that of Mr. Markeri, from da?
mage to furniture und lumber, about
