The Rev. Dr. Armstrong Renounces the Chrig.

In Augusta a short time a. i attended

he was intoxicated there. Ile denied it.
however, and his friends denied it. Within
the last two weeks a number of afidavi
have been made to the effect that he was
intoxicated at the banquet, or on the day
afterward. These aflidavits were lodged
with the authorities of the church. and an
Episcopal minister wrote to Dr. Armstrong
that tLe only way to avoid another trial was
to renount: theuministry. Dr. Armstron
at once telegraphed that he would renounct
the ministry of the Episcopal Church, and
the Conxtn'1t-A infornation is that he did
so last Saturday.
When spoken to about the matter by a
Con.titationl reporter. Dr. Armstrong would
not talk. le was much surprised that the
news had gotten out. He said he had
nothing whatever to say concerning the
matter, but would let his course become
public through the regular channel.
A gentleman, who is a friend of Dr.
Armstrong. said, however:
"The letter has been written. I have not
seen it, but 1 understand that it recites that
the doctor desires to relieve the Episcopal
Church from any responsibility whatever
for his action, and desires to be relieved of
any responsibility to the ministry. The
reasons for this, I believe are that he felt
that he could not, with consistencv. or
with dignity or peace. maintain a relation
with a church, the authorities of whiclh
were unfriendly to him, whether justly or
unjustly. He felt that he would have tc
either renounce the ministry of the chiurc'
or leave Atlanta, which he had determined
to make his home. le chose the former
The gentleman was asked what Dr. Arm
strong would do in the future.
"I do not know," lie said. "For thc
present, at least, he will continue in the

pany, which is p1,h-'I at and profitable. I
think, however, his wholeirdlmation leadt
him to public speaking. and I hiemthat

A Remarkable Faith Cure Reported.
The Pittsburg papers report a remarka.
ble faith cure from Banksvilje, a mining
town two miles from the city. As the story
o, 3aggie Beadling, the 16 year old
uhter of a coal miner, had been bed
ridden. Frequently of late she had lain in
a trance, or comatose state, for days, and
when she would return to consciousness
she would tell her friends that she had
been to Heaven. In proof of the story of
her transition she told the names and de
seribed the appearance of relatives who
- bad died before she was born, and of others
whom she knew when they were alive. In
October and November last she lay in a
comatose state for several weeks, during
which time she partook only of a small
quantity of liquid food, administered to
her by attendants. When she revived she
claimed to have received divine communi
cation to the effect that at 2 P. 31. on Feb
ruary 17, she would be raised from an in
valid's bed entirely restored to health.
Thursday afternoon, it is asserted, her
father's house was tilled with friends and
curiosity seekers. Promptly at 2 o'clock
the young girl arose from her chair with
her hands and, flinging them aside, walked
about the room, to the overwhelming as
tonishment of those present. The cure
seemed completo, and she jumped about
the room like a child. The news was
noised about, and almost the entire popula.
tion of Banksville turned out to see the
wonderful ease. Her parents wept for joy,
and the greatest excitement prevailed. 3Iis
Beadling was seen by several reporters.
and she pronounced herself well. It is the
belief among the neighbors that the young
lady was sincere in her claim of affliction,
and her recovery is regarded as a miracle.
A Washington hicandlal.
There is a scandal agitating social and
club circles which is now on every tongue.
So much is this story turned over that it is
now as widely disseminated in Washington
as if the details of the story had been pub.
lished in the World. The story involves
an ex-diplomat who was once an ornament
in the American foreign service. For sonie
time it has b-een a source of wonder how
this retired official manages to live and go
about in good society as he has done, as
evey one knew that he had no private for
tune. Recently a well-known public man
missed some valuable jewvels from his house.
He placed the matter in the hands of a pri
vate detective, who traced the missing arti~
cles to the ex-official. The further devel
opment of the case showed that a lady
member of the public man's family had
taken the jewels, and the ex-official who
had been devoted to her, received and dis
posed of them-whether for himself or
the lady in question has not been made
clear. TNo arrests have made. The private
detective was paid a handsome sum to drop
The Direct Tax Bill.
Contrary to the expectations of the friends
of the measure, the Ilouse Judiciary Comn
mittee has agreed to report favorably the
Senate bill providing for the repayment of
the direct tax collected from the States
under the act of 1801. Whether there will
be time, in view of the backwardness of
the appropriation bills, is a question. MIr.
Culberson, of Texas, offered in committee
a substitute for the bill, which, had it been
agreed to, would have largely benefitte-d
the South. It was based on the idea that
the Senate bill only carried with it, partial
justice. This substitute retained all the
features of the origrinal biti regarding the
return of that part of the tax which the
States had paid and the remission of that
part which was still due, but it went ftir
ther and provided that the States be paid
all the amounts which were due to them by
the United States go.vernmnent and which
had been withheld on account of their in
debtedness to the government, growing out
of the direct tin: that the owners of land
sold for non-payment of taxas be returned
the amount paid at the sales, after deducted
costs, etc.: that the amounts collected under
the tax on raw cotton be refunded to the
Southern States, which :.mounts should be
held in trust for the producers.

The Homestead Exetion.
The Columbia Lecord ag'res w" N
Herald in holding that som i g should
be done with th omestead law for the
building up-Olcredit. In talking with
a lari from another State some time
,.'o, he remarked that his State, too,
had a homestead law, but it was a check
on fraud, and not an encouragement to
dishonesty. Their law gave a man no
exemption from his honest debts unless
the homestead was set off before the
debts were contracted, but on the con
trary prohibited him from setting aside
to his family more property than a fixed
amount, and then trading upon his own
appearance and reputation for wealth,
and thereby defrauding the ignorant.
In our State a man may give everything
he has to his wife, live like a lord, and
when men, ignorant of this secret ar
rangement, demand payment for just
debts, may defeat their claims -n the
ground that le has nothing. And even
if he has neglected to do this thing, our
law still says he can keep 81,5U0 before
lie pays a collar on his most sacred obli
gations. The fact is that we have en
tirely misunderstood this law. It had its
origin in the West, and was in the na
ture of a bankrupt law. Men who had
lost everything in the East frequently
went to a Western State, took up a gov
ernment "section," cleared up the
wilderness, and built them a home. In
the enjoyment of this home they were
protected from the rapacity of foreign
creditors; and this was right. iut these
conditions do not exist in South Caroli
na, and we have no nced of the law as it
now operates. If a a= ee1t'S midr
titne, and gives u everything to his
creditors, they should forgive him wthait
lie cannot pay. But when a nman con
tracts an honest debt, Las the proprerty'
to) pay it, and refuses to dto so, it is d~e
moralizing and diisgraceful for the law to
shield him in his diaonesty.-Spartan

How the Two 'men Made Their Escape
froim the Country.
In I he sunner of 1875 I met Gen. Breck
enridge in Richmond. and one Sunday
aftertnon we were sitting alone in front
of the Dailard hotel. I asked him, if not

hii a n accomit of his escape after the

filly lo io. and said that after following
Mr. Davis some distance on the retreat he

pe'rsi-,ied in. capture would be certaLin and
