The history is a uniipic one; lo'- it i
the only instance iu our State hilow o
a fixed mission in the wiidtrues havim
for its object the combined dilluston t
the pospcl, of secular instruction and o:
industrial training. Those who caterer
upon the work were devoted, self denying,
men, sacrificing many comforts, enduring
much pri villi) n, encountcrin.Lr man
hardships, building their own liotises.
tilling their own fields, teaching tlie un
letttred, ministerinu to spiritual want s.
nursing or healing the sick, c 'mloriini.
the adlictcd, and in all things deporting
themselves as ti ne men ol tiod. It is u
relieving and beautilul feature of theii
hard htliors that tliey were met with
such pen tie and pratcful response by tlu
people auionp whom tiny served.
It was for some yeai s a "happy vallcv'
on which the rays of a petiuuie Chris
tianity beamed with its softest rays. Tht
time at letipth arrived when untowaro
intlucnce came in to disturb this blessed
tranquillity, topenerate ditrust, and em.
in the dispersion of the laborers in tlu
once fruitful vineyard and the final ruin
of a happily conceived ami once wisel
conducted desipn. For these, we preiei
to reler the reader to the book itself f
tht painful details.
The interest ol Miss Cooper's tilth
work larpcly centres upon William West
Skiles. All of the youup men who di
verted themselves to the work at Vallt
Crucis knew the nature of the duties that
lay before them; they knew they were
full of hard work, physical as well as
mental, the privation not only of luxu
ries, hut of comforts, almost of neees
saries, that they had put their hands t(
theplonphjfrotn which they could not look
back; that they must provide for their
own subsistenc. by the work of their own
hands; that they must tench the ignorant
as the leadinp object of thurlahors; that
they must carry the gosjwl throuph the
rough wilderness where there were n
ronds, and must meet appointments de
spite of stnrm and flood and snow and ice.
that they must visit the sick, and bury tlu
dead and cany comfort to the sorrowful.
Among all those, none seemed to have
been fitted so well for such a life of van
ous exacting duty ns Mr. SkiUs. lie was
a man of good parentage, hut of limited
early education. He had been a mill
wright and store keeper. A man simple,
earnest, and of sound practical judg
ment, and withal imbued with strong,
active religious sentiment, he was at
tracted to the field of Valle Crucis. There
his resolute energy, his practical knowl
edge, his clear judgment, and his prompt
decisiveness soon placed him in leading
position in the little colony. He was
bead farmer, he was store keeper, treas
urer, postmaster, and general superin
tcodeut. The sympathizing gentleness of
liis nature called for anntlu'r avocation.
In the countrv around him there was no
physician, no medicines, and vet there
was tre.uent sickness. He nursed the
sick, supplied the medicines out ol the
little stock of the mission, learned that!
man existence, and studied the medical j
hooks until he had fairly added to his
equipment the (pialilicatious of a pood !
physician. So in his relation to the most j
import an l part of man's nature ; and he j
devoted himself to theological study in -til
he was admit led into the church as a :
deacon. lie now stood complete in all
his armor of usefulness. From thence to
i iie end of his lite he knew no idleness.;
scarcely any rest. He went about domy j
.joeid. If ever there was a life that was j
pure, saintly, self sacrificing, it was that j
f this gentle, modest, earnest, devoted I
man, who had taken up his cros and
lore it, and never laid it down ut til, :
rushed at last on one of his painnr ;
journeys, he sunk to rest at the house

II.C.C. Alwood, late consul to St.
i'omingo, tells President Harrison in an
pen It tier ' hat "the negro is rest less and
Hssaiisfied with the present administra--ion,
; 1 1 1 1 lias no confidence in its pre
ended promises;" that the negro is sore
oid mighty sore, "and that the destiny
f the Kepublieau party is in the hands
if the ueuro."
When we know that the negroes com
pose niuetx per cent, of the republican
vote in tiie South, that they hold the
balance of power in New Vork, Ohio, Ju
liana and Illinois ; that that party has ap
propriated the negro in those States and in
'.he South as its especial property; that to
insure possession it has been profuseinex
ti vagant promises; and that iu the
X'orthern States it has falsified them all.
md iu the South has onlv kept un a
show of pood faith by making a tool of
i lie neirro. and under pretense of favoring
ais interests, thrusting him into trouble.
'.hereby retarding his progress, we can
not wonder that "he is sore, mighty
sore." or that he menaces the parly that
uas wronged him with a show of his
power. When he does that, the end of
he Republican party is at hand; and
when it comes to an end, then the era of
peace will eome for the negro, impossi
ble when he is used as the i .strumeiit of
agitation, and filled with discontent, or
inflamed with vain ambition. When he
;s let alone he will quietly learn that he
will neither hap into, or be thrust up
wards to positions his limited experience
