A ; . '
av , AN ECCENTRIC CLERGYMAN.
if ' " .It is nearjy 21 years since father
. f? ' '" .Newell,-ns lie whs called, happened to
t- . , ' be in Charleston, S. 0. during the pas
toral vacation, and. was invited to
&.S ' i preach. in, the old Circular Church,
"jjff j ' '
m " then as venerable as St. Michels. The
v'; ! committee had heard of him and his
-eccentricities, in which he rivaled Lo
?;, k ' . renzo Dow, and resolved to give him
i a hint on the Sabbath. They did so,
saying that he must not forget that he
4 was in the great city of Charleston,
and was to preach in a very fine
fv, Church, to a v,ery refined audience.
(r There was an ominous smile as he
said he would remember.
Service commenced, and hymn and
(prayer were not much out of the cora-
- mon, save with more power in them,
. and the committee on pulpit supply!
. began to breathe freely, and to use
their fans and handkerchiefs.
, It was time to preach and old New
, t: ell got up. He looked all around and
' up at the gallery, crowded with qua-
V droon and mulatto nurses and servants
;r.-. lne. alily nn then began :
"lam told I must be careful what
l . j I say to-day., for this is a refined church
and a refined city, and I am to preach
to a refined audience. I have been
looking around for the refinement and
see it. You refine anything when you
... lake it in its coarse state, like black'
molasses or yellow sugar, and make it
t white and fine. You bring a shipload
of negros to this city of Charleston,
and. every face is so black it would cast
, a shadow on the chimney back, and
the hair is as kinky as a theological
student's ideas. You keep them in
1 ' Charleston 100 years, and to save my
soul I can't tell, half the time, the ne
gro from the white man, nor the qua
droon nurse from the while child's
mother, nor the yellow girl from the
. ; white, only she ain't so bilious. Yes,
I own up to you. You are a power
C1 ful refined people, and I give you the
glory for doing it all, for the Lord had
" ' " ' no hand in it. It is your refinement,!
$ "! f for the Almighty never made a mu
latto or a rnule."
'Then he preached to as humble a
. congregation as he ever had in the
V. ilatwoods of E'.berti But lie was no
asked again. ; , ,
