ELDER JOHN SU ;G SMITH.
We, in giving a short history of the

2ndly, As pious, godly men, and espe
cially ministers of the gospel are so few
in number, we think that a record of i heir
lives might b of service to the surviving
generations; for the si red writer saith,
they should be esteemed very highly for
I heir works' sake,
Elder Smith was born, according to
the record given us, November 5fh 1S0S
lie, like n my others in his youth was
wild and rattling, and contracted some had
habits, became very fond of the fiddle,
and was apparently as much in his eh'
ment when dancing after the fiddle, as the
next youth to he found: and while this
was the case, he became a habitual pro
tane swearer, for the writer of this me
moir, has heard him say, that he thought
that would be the hardest thing to quit of
all the vices he was guilty of. Yet we
feel assured, that the Lord wis pleased at
his own appointed time, by his raee, to
bring this profligate son to a knowledge
tof himself, and ultimately, to know Jesus
Christ, whom to know is life eter
nal. To specify the precise time when he
was arrested by the Spirit of the Lord,
we cannot; but know it was at an early
period of his life And after being, as
we believed, awakened or quickened into
divine life, his convictions were deep, and
sore; for he often said, that he not only
saw. the dark bewildered condition that
his soul was in by ivason of sin, but tnat
the darkness was so thick that it seemed
that he could feci it; so that with all the
1 ft a
eves h had. he could see no way to es
cape the vengeance of
Yet that (od with whom all things is
possible, by his Spirit drew him down in
the valley of humility,

with Daxid. a new soog was put in his
mouth, even praises lo his God He notj
long after thiscame forward to the church j
at Nahunta, and was received to baptism,.
and was baptized in July, 1883 Vnd
not long after this he commenced exercis
ing his gifts as a preacher, and was very
promising in the otitset; and was directly
so highly approved of, that the church
not long first called him to ordination,
after which he continued to preach, and
serve churehes around him, and was much
beloved by the brethren in general that:
lormed acquaintance with him. He wis
a very candid preacher, and wc believe
to be oithodox; and vye think we can
safely say, for his age in the ministry he
was not excelled but by few.
But it was not the will of God that he
, l . . .. r, .
should stand long on the walls of Zmn.

Drc.ched was false, and that he should eoi
1 r t I
to hell, and suffer the greater damnation,1
for his false preaching; together with
tales of the like character, all of which
we pronounce to be false, and without
any foundation As he lived to hear of
some of those false reports, he seemed to
wish to be raised to rebut them himself,
but was not. permitted.
A few weeks before he died, the writer
of this memoir asked him if his faith was
strong in the doctrine of predestination
and election as formerly; and if he was
raised up. would he preach it as hereto
fore. And his reply was yes, stronger it
possible than ever. But Jiis preaching
was done, and Saturday morning, the 8th
...f March, 1851 he died, we believe in
the triumphs of faith, and has been taken
to tint rest that remains for the people of
of the University Mag rzine.
The Students of the University oi
Xorth Carolina, having deliberated, in a
body, on the expediency of establishing
literary organ, and being well convince''
olhe menial and perhaps moral benefit
which may result there fro m, have resolv
ed to exe-mte their design. We take tins
appropriate means of announcing it to the
public. No legitimate department of
Literature will be excluded from the 1 an

be held objectionable, provided the arii

of improprieties. Every effoit will be
made to interest our readers wim origin

information. We do not. indeed,, expect
to produce aught ''which the worit will
not willingly let die," hut we are aiding t
in the purpose which has placed us at
College, and on that account, at least, may
expect encouragement To those who
