when 1 1 citizen U the sovereign and Ihe
olllci 1 1 ie servant ; where no power is
t'Xcrc.auU except by the will ol the peo
ple, it is important that the foverigu, the
people, Miould foster intcllltfeiicc that

exUteuoc. 1 predict that the dividing liuu
will not be Mason and Dixon's, hut be

one side and superstition, atiib tiou, and
Ignorance 011 the other. Now, the cen
tennial year of our national existence I
believe Is a good time to begin the work
of strengthening the foundation o! the
structure commented by our patriotic
forefathers one hundred years ago at Lex
ington. Let us all lubor to aid all needful
guarantees for the seeurityol free tliotiglit,
free speech, a Ireo press, pure morals,
uufidiered religious sentiments, and of
equal rights mid privileges to all men,
irrespective of nationality, color, or reli
gion ; ciicouriigcfrce schools, and resolve
that not one dollar appropriated for their
support shall be iipnmpnatcd to the sup
port of any sectarian schools ; resolve
that neither the State or nation, or both
combined, shall suppoit Institutions ol
learning other than those sulllcient to
atlortl to every child gtowintr up In the
laud the opportunity of n good common
school education, unmixed with sectarian,
pagan, or atheistical dogmas. Leave the
matter of religion to the lanilly nltar, the
chnrch.nud the private school, supported
entirely by private contributions. Keep
the church uud the State lorever separate.
With these safeguards I believe tue but
tles which created the Army of the Ten
nessee will not have been fought iu vain.
I Carthago (111,) Gazette
Two weeks ago we alluded to state

penitentiary, charging the deputy war
dens with cruelly towards prisoners, uud
alleging that one of thetn, Hall, man
aged to keep these cruel practices from the
knowledge of the Warden and Commis
sioners. We then stated that these state
ments were not entitled to credit, and
would not have alluded to the matter at
all had it not been that wo saw In so Re

A LOST RACE.
A Msradiwilceil . Bond Cnvrrrd by
One Hundred and fifty Heart
Sevoral years ago considerable excite
ment was created In Falrtnount, W. V.,
by the discovery ol tnue.s of mi old mac
adamized road extending along the right
bank of the MoiiougahelTi. opposite thai
place. Recently the Government engi
neering party engaged iu the survey ot
the Upper Aloiioiig.ihelit lliver, with the
view of slack-watering that stream from
Morgutitowii to Kalriiiudiit, examined
this old road, and from the members of
the party we learn that there can be no
doubt but thatthlsruadfuriiishesuuother
trace of the lost race Hint once dominated
the Continent long before the Indians
came Into possession.
There are traces of the road lor nearly
eleven miles along the narrow strip of
bottom laud betweeu the hills and the
river, though at many points the river,
having shifted lt channel and cut into
the hills, has entirely obliterated every
evidetico ol it. Generally the road Is
covered by from two to live feet of allu
vium, either deposited through the course
of ages by the river Hoods, or else by the
slow washing off the hills skirling it. Its
Width is said to be IllUell feet.
The most curious feature about the
road l that the stone from which it Is
formed appears invariably to have been
burnt. herever the road shows itself
iu cutting the hanks. It is marked by the
black substratum ot uhes. In depth the
broken stone varies from six inches to
eighteen Inches, ol Irregular frag
ments. The material employed np-K-ars
to have been largely composed
of boulders of red sandstone, and
the conjecture is that they were broken
after being made hot with water thrown
upon them. There hi iug lew (if any)
boulder- Iu the river or adjacent country,
the finery arises, where could the matt
rial have been obtained to make this
Al the crossings of the streams there
are no trace oi bridge abutments or
piers, which lead to the conclusion that
tfio streams were cro-sed on wooden
bridges. At many points the road Is
covered with trees over one hundred and
liliy years old, which makes It certain
that it was constructed Ininr before tin-

ciue which lead Inevitably to Hm conclu
sion It Mas Hindu in tlioau twrlr uua
when semi-civilized people Inhabited
North America. No one acnualntid
with th habits of the American Indians
woum give them credit for con-trtictlnsr
such a work of art as this.
To tiik Emtok op Tin: W1110 : Allow
me to correct an erroneous impression
Which. (luilhtless. lm he, ti lii'iili ilium
the minds of many through the verdict
or the committee appointed bv the .M. E.
Church, in tills city, to Investigate the
Ilollman-Preiitiss case. I allude to the
false Impres-lon made with reference In
the so-called suspension iiom church
membership of Gen. II. .M. I'rentiss.
There is neither law nor uage
in the M. K. Church to jiistiiy
suspension ol church membership, ex
cept for minister., who can be sii-pended
whiiifouud guilty of Immorality, irom
the functions ol their olllee, until (if he
be a local preacher) the next ipiarterlv
conference, or if he be a traveling preaeli
er, until the next animal coiilcreuee.
Usage rules only in the absence of law.
In the M. E. Church there 13 a law hav
ing direct reference to the verdict of a
committee appointed to try an accused
inemlier. The law (pago IIU ol ihe dis
cipline of the M. K. Church,
say: "II the accused lie found
guilty by tho decision of
the majority of tho committee
let the preacher Iu charge expel him."
The accused. In tho case a bow alluded to,
is a member of tho M. E. Church now
just us truly as he ever wu. The com
bined ellortsofall the members of the
M. E. Church cannot suspend a member
(except ministers) for one moment. The
above Is not written with a view of con
veying the Idea that tho delendant.Iu tho
aforenamed case, is guilty of the charge
for which he was tried, or that he Is In
nocent, but with a view of Informing tho
misinformed upon tho subject of suspen
sion ot church membership In the M. E.
Church. A. J. Kald.
