A Grand Communion.
Says the New York Herald:
coronation of the week of prayer, as
Ilev. J. Hyatt Smith described it,
was the grand union communion of
Baptists, Presbyterians, Congrega
tionalists, Methodists and llelbrmed
Dutch, which took place yesterday
afternoon in the Keformod Church, on
Bedford Avenue, lhocklyn. It was
a sublime spectacle, and as Dr. Por
ter, at whose suggestion and in w hose
church it was held, remarked, never
was such a tablo spread on this con
tinent. Two thousand people, of
different and sometimes of warring
denominations, sitting: together in one
place and at one time at tho table of
their common Lord and Saviour and
commemorating 1 lis dying love and
their own faith in Him and their
union with another is a sight seldom
witnessed. As Dr. Porter and Mr.
Holmes remarked, it should give an
inspiration to tho communicants for
till their futuro lives. Their common
creed was faith in Christ, a3 express
ed in the Apostles' Creed, which tho
entire congregation recited audibly.
Such a scene, Mr. Smith thought,
should mako Toplady and Wesley
shako hands in tho skies, as his fol
lowers shook hands hero in spirit ; if
not in the flesh, as they sang their
hymns of hope and trust in Jesus.
Tho occasion was one of deep solem
nity, and not easily forgotten.

Ti:mpei:axce. A correspondent from

published iu llaleigh, says :
Our council is steadily, increasing in

must admit that we have 1 letter looking
young men in our council than any other
council In the State, and we are willing
now to challenge any council for the beauty
of lady members, thirteen of whom have
joined u , at the last two meetings. It may
be hard to make you lielieve it, hut I would
advise you to send dow n some of your best
looking young brothers to sec. We will
give them a fair showing and an hearty
Xow w e wonder w ho this correspondent
can be. 1 To is doubtless correct as to the
ladies, but, sakcs-alive ! if he counts the
men of the Temperance order here pretty
he must be cross-eyed or see through a
glass darkly. Why man, there is ,
(we liked to have written his name) and a
dozen others we could mention, that would
constitute the prize ugly club of the State.
Bisiior Giimox's Visit. On Friday and
Saturday mornings, at 8 o'clock, divine ser
vices were held at the private residence of
Mr. Teel. Communion was administered
to th members. The sacrament of con
firmation was also, there being eight can
didates, two of whom were converts. The
Bishop's exhortation was plain and shnple,
but Solemn and touching, and will long be
remembered by the little band of Catholics
there assembled, for they felt. " where two
or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them." It was
a touching sight, and the parents wept with
joy to see their children offering their pure
young hearts to God, renewing the vows
made for them at their Baptism. Long
may they remember the day they enlisted
as soldiers of Christ and cherish in their
hearts the admonitions of their beloved
Bishop, for as llowors emit a sweet odor,
so does his sanctity and edifying counsels
leave their impress on his people.
Disorganized. We hear it remarked
by men of observation, that labor seems to
be more disorganized this winter than ever
heretofore. There seems to lie an indis
position on the part of the negroes to hire
themselves for any permanent, settled bus
iness, but are flooding the country, and;
especially me towns, trying lo gei jobs of
wood-cutting, yard-cleaning and other odd
implovments which pay perhaps some
what more, but have no permanent dura
tion. Their petitions for work are some
times most plaintively put, as if they must
starve unle.-s they get that special job,
when they know there are numerous
fanners ready to employ them at good
w ages, lurnismng comioruiuie nouses, n-re-wood,
if they would only settle down
to steady work.
We are informed too that the negroes,
who were croppers last year, are com
pletely prostrate financially tin account of
the low prices of their produce, which has
caused considerable (iisaiieciion.
What effect these facts arc to have upon
the crop of lST-i we cannot predict, but
they are elements which should not be left
out of consideration.

Farmers and Merchants, Look to Your
During the past season, and up to the
present, there arc two lines of steamers
connecting lictween New York & Norfolk,
via Washington, to the rich and productive
lands of tlie Pamlico and Tar River sec
tions. Up to within a few days ago the
W. it W. It. li. has been connected with
the same sections by the Steamer Vesta.
This Steamer and Cotton Plant have been
connecting w ith the Olive, and the Olive
with the" Old Dominion line, which has
brought cheap transportation to all this re
gion of country. But during the past fall
(if we are not" mistaken) there was a line
of steamers started from Baltimore via
Norfolk to Washington, connecting with
the Lorillard line to New York. Tins had
the effect to put freights still cheaper, and
the result is there has been some arrange
ment made between the Railroad and the
Old Dominion line by which the producer
and merchant can ship cither way on the
river by the Cotton Plant.
The object of those two monopolies is
easily understood. For instance, since the
Vesta has been taken off we learn, the
Agent of tho Old Dominion line at Wash
ington refuses to receive and pay freight and
send it up the river. There is one remedy
to prevent extravagant freights on the riv
er, and that is to purchase a steamer to run
the Tar river, connecting with the Balti
more line at Washington.
In order to make this line sufficiently
strong to compete with the Old Dominion
line and the Railroad, w hich is likely to
join, let one hundred farmers and merch
ants take stock in a Boat to run against
those monopolies. The fanners of Edire-
combc, Pitt and Beaufort, can well afford
to give oO cents on each bale of cotton an
nually in support of this line, and the same
may be said of the merchants on each box
of goods, as it will be much better tlum to
be imposed upon as they w ill be. Messrs.
G. II. Brown & Co., of Washington, have
an agent out soliciting subscriptions to this
line, and I trust all who have an interest in
cheap transportation will lend a helping
hand. Jas. R. Thigpex.
P. S. The name of the Boat should be
the People's Boat.
Dentisthy. Dr. Fuqua, a Dentist of
successful experience and a worthy gentle
man, can always be found at his office over

Elopement in High Life. We take
the following graphic account f rom the last
issue of the Roanoke News:
At 7:- P. M., on Tuesday a bright tire
crackled on the hearth of Dr. Boges Arm
strong, in the town of Rocky Mount. Mrs.
Boges was industriously engaged in stewing
whisky to produce an cnternal comfort
commensurate w ith cheer engendered by
the the. The raiu Ix-at pitilessly against
the window, the wind howled and
shattered around the house and through
the shutters. The medical man and a male
boarder, H. W. Do Shidds, sipped the
w hisky and spun yarns. Esculapius re
lated of his marvelous exploits in hurry
ing mortals into the "awful presence,"
Do Shields, of how many carriages he
could trim and had trimmed in one dny,
for he was a carriage trimmer. The tluec
counted over the results of the unction sale
of property, belonging to the Doctor, on
Saturday. Tho sale was preparatory to
removal to Beaufort.
Time roiled on. The Doctor's head
grew two heavy for his nock, and his lids
too burdensome for his strength. Mor
pheus claimed him. Reader, tho tragedy
is but liegun. Wednesday's sun rose clear
and bright clear and bright for all, save
and excepting our hero. The cheery voice
and bustling form that usually animated
the preparation of breakfast wore missed
and instead was an aching void. Where
was Mrs. Boges ? AVhcre was DeShields ?
w here was all the money realized from the
auction sale ? The nest was cold and the
bird had flown. I Ier baggage had been
ton, by the 10 p. in. train.
The Anglo-Saxon vernacular was impo
tent to describe the mighty wrath of the
doubly roblied doctor, lie only adds an
other to the long list of woman s victims.
Like the vampire they suck deadliest when
they nestle closest.
Great sorrow is expressed in the com
munity for De Shields, as the lady in
question was a legitimate descendant of
the Gorgon horror, Medusa, of mahogony
complexion and pink teeth and curly locks.
Of course no charge of venality could be
brought against the handsome young Lo
thario, as he only rathered 400 by the
" Ever thus will the record stand,
Woman, thy vows, are traced iu sand."
For the Enquirer-Southerner.
Toleration, Bigotry, Persecution.
Men are spoken of as divided into two
general classes, the Church and the World.
To which of the classses do the above
tonus belong ? Toleration is the exercise
of power; and it belongs to that class
w hich justly exercises civil authority. The
act of toleration is the control and forcible
restraint imposed by one party upon the
conscience of another party. It is saying,
"you may worship and obey our Maker to
a specified limit ; beyond that point, you
shall reverence and obey me." But power
over men does not extend beyond the body ;
and in the constitution of the universe
properly lielongs to civil law. Toleration
is therefore a fit subject for a iolitical
Bigotry is a word of uncertain meaning.
It grew out of tho multiplication of sects.
It is the offspring of heresy. The Church
of Christ had no use for the term. Its
primary sense and true signification is,
"You will not, or do not lx-Iieve and act
as I do." The Church had no need to
conform to any one else; heresy alone
would change the gospel ; hence, the term
belongs to the erring. A christian is either
decided in his faith, or else he really be
lieves nothing. But decision and firmness
were always the greatest excellences of the
gospel. To waver is declared to bo " like
a wave of the sea driven with the wind
and tossed." Hence, the authors of the
tomi claim that he who will not waver is
a bigot. It aims therefore to enslave ho
conscience. The term, then, belongs to the
world ; since power oyer conscience is un
known in the gospel. This subject too, is
proper for a state journal.
Persecution is the largest result of the
fiend at work, wliich accuses men of bigo
try, and which has enacted, or would in-
forcc, the law of toleration ; and charging
a faithf ul man with intolerence tor con
demning what he sees or believes to b
heresy. Persecution is intentional harm
perpetrated against the person, or reputa
tion, or property, of another, for yielding
his or her conscience to God's law in pref
erence to mine, or to my will. And since
persecution claims plenary power over the
souls and bodies ot other people it is prop
oily the subject of politics ; and so, it is
right to give it a piace in a state paper.
Now, if the government of the Inxlies of
men, that is, of all worldly matters, be
longs to the world, and not to the Church,
we must retrace the histor- to find where
and when the usurpation liegan, to know
how the intermeddle was likely to produce
so much evil.
Paul begins with Cain and Abel. Abel
had good season for desiring that Cain's
faith should conform to his. On the con
trary, Cain had every cause to wish that
Abel s creed might not be the same as his.
And yet, instead of praying that his reli
gion might raise to the excellence aud hap
piness of Abel's, Cain raved and committed
murder to lower and vitiate Abel's religion
to his. And it is a matter of universal sor
row to know that the religious opposition
which has eventuated in acts of toleration
in charges of bigotry, and prolonged raids
of persecution, did not grow out of a desire
to make others happier, but to gratify the
spirit of revenge. The spirit which desires
to make men happier, carries one to God in
prayer, and to men with alms and benefits
but the spirit wliich is inimical to the gos
nel. will force concience, charge the firmest
c!ui3iian with bigotry, and meditate his in
jur' Satau is fond of fashion. John Adaiua
feared no fall when he in Congress advoca
ted the support of the Clergy from the pul
lic Treasury. John Calvin gloried in pre
cipitating the condemnation and burning to
death of Michael Servitus. And the same
spirit and the same motives which sent
"Abel's bl.xxl to cry to Gxl from the
ground," is the same to-day which deals in
fashionable sneer, burlesque and ridicule of
the tenets, the awkwardness, or the ignor
ance of other denominations. And clam
oring for the union of persons and denom
inations whose faith differs from ours, is
the beginning of persecution. And intol
erence, and bigotry, are terms of which
the Church of Christ never had, and never
will have need, but they belong to those
who have no part in Christ.

LETTER FROM PROF. WM. C. KERlt, STATE GEOLOGIST OF NORTH CAROLINA :
- Raleigh, N. 0.. January 7th, 187 1.
-B. Griffith, Esq., General Agent Gaanahani Guano Company, Petersburg Virginia :
Dear Sir: D. F. A. Genth, whose Analysis of the Guauahaui Guano you hava shown me
is Chemical Mineralogist to the Geological Survey, and has uo superior as a chemist. I
have no hesitation in endorsing any analysis from bis laboratory. And I think the an
alysis justifies bis statement that the substance examined by him is a VALUABLE MAN
URE. From his report, and that of Prof. Wilson, it is evidently a TRUE GUANO, both in
origin and compesition, aud its action on crops niiy be expected to bs the same in kind
arid in degree, proportion to its relative per centage of the valuable ingredients Phos
phoric Acid, Ammonia and Potash, that of the first being unusually high.
W. G. KERR, State Geologist-
The following analyses of different cargoes and samples by two of the leading chemists
of the country, are jjiveu fcr the tuidance of the public :
LETTER OF PKOF. P. B WILSON, LATE ASSISTANT OF BARON J. VON. LIEBIG.
CHEMICAL LABORATORY OF PROF. P. 1$. WILSON, No. 30 Second Street.
Baltimore, December 1st, 1S73.
Maj. N. M. Tasnoe, Piesidect Guanuhani Guano Company, Petersburg, Va.:
Dear Sir : I have drawn samples of the Guano, as it has arrived in cargo lots, and find
it exceedingly uuifoi iu in the amount of Phosphoric Acid it contains, nainelv, from 15 to
19 per cent. Thts is combined with Lime, and is of animal origin, and readily assimilable
by plants. It contains potential ammonia aud nitiic acid, having a combined Nitrogen
value equal to from 2 to 3 per crnt. of ammonia, with the alkalira Potash aud Soda, and
valuable proportions of Sulphate of Lime. Tho whole forming a very desireable combina
tion for all crops, and when applied to land, the crop receiving proper tillage, must in my
opiniou, aive as good results as any guauo offered to the farmer.
Being of aiiimal origin, the organtic matter has undergone partial decomposition, nnd it
necessarily contain a valuable amount of Ilnnius, which makes its fertilizing power much
greater than fertilizers which are compounded largely of Peruvian Guano, which, beyond
its ammonia and small phosphatic value, has little or no power in absorbing from the at
mosphere and retaining in the soil the movable elements absorbed by moisture and brought
down ny the rains, as the guano yoa are now placiDg upon the market. All of the
components of this Guano are very soluble iu the soil, and possess such physical proper
ties as to render it at all times and under all circumstances as immediately available plant
The late samples you sent me for analysis, from the deposit which you inform me you
intend to ship from, show a decrease in the phosphatic value, butjja large increase in its ni
trogen compounds. I think, however, from previous observations of cargoes, that you may
reasonably expect, that cargoes taken from whet these sample were drawn, will materi
ally improved in the saline compounds, (phosphates alkalies and maenesia.)
Respectfully, etc., P. B. WILSON, Analytical and Consulting Chemist.

Dear Sir: In compliance with your request, I have analyzed sample of " Guanahani
Guauo," and have made additional examination ot' an average sample from a lot of 300
tons the result of which, I beg to embrace
powder, with lumps of combinations of lima
It contains a considerable quantity of water
brown powder. Tne Guano is evidently of animal origin, aud the minute hones, which
were discovered in the same, indicate that it is the result of the decay of bats, mice, &c.
The quantity of organic matter, which is still present, is about 12 per cent., and this yields
about lb per cent, of ammouia. A portion of tne nitrogen is present, as nitric acid, of
which about 3 per cent, was found. All the nitrogen present would be equivalent to about
3i per cent, of ammonia. The phosphoric acid in the Guano, about 12i per cent., equal lo
27 3 per cents of bone phosphate. A considerable quantity of the phosphoric acid, how
ever, is present, as so-called neutual phosphate of lime, .which, being slightly soluble in

water, renuers me uuano as quicK in its acuon as a corresponumg quantity oi super

adds to its value.

exit that it is a valuable manuure.
