Last week we hinted to correspon
dents in the so-called militia contro
versy that we would be glad to have
them end the controversy, and we be
Jieve that the public desired an end to
the communications as much as we
did. Now we desire to say that we
hint no longer. The controversy has
becomeintensely and ofrensively per
sonal, and any further artiele sent to
this office on the subject will be re
turned to the author if accompanied
with postage, otherwise it will be
destroyed. If correspondents desire
to attack each other, and not their
views about public questions, it must
be done through the mai's, or face to
face, or in any way they see proper,
but it can not be done through this
We never take sides in a controversy
of this kind, but, in fairness, we may
say that, in our opinion, a canvass of
thepolitical faith of the volunteers
will show that in numerical numbers
neither of the former political factions
in this State has any decided advan
tage and certainly nothing to boasl
about. Aside from this, the vital
question just now is, how the State is
going to furnish its. quota of volun.

CKILDEE14S' DAY ' AT ANTF
CHURO, BLACESTOC1 CIRCU
Mr. Editor: At the request of the
pastor, I herein give your readers a
short account of Childrens' Day, at
Autioch Church, Blackstock 'circnit,
Rev. P. B. ingram in charge.!
The 21st inst., which was chosen as
the day for the exercises, dawned on
us beautiful and br'ght; and as old
Sol rose in the heavens the day- grew
hot. The heat, however, wAs miti
gatcd, to a knmall extent, by a gentle
breeze, and to a considerabla extant,
by the thocghtfalness and liberality
of Hon. John G. Wolling, who kept a
barrel filled wit' -ire ice water, and
conveniently placed near by in the
Enclosed, the writer has the p,leas
are of sending you a copy of the
'.Children's Day Service", with sup
plement, as published, at Nashville,
by the agents of the Methodist Epis
copal Church South for the use of the
Sunday Schools everywhere within
its bounds. He does this, that you
may see, for yourself, that the pro
gram is elaborate; and, if carried out
in full and perfectly, would afford
entertainment and instruction to old
and young, alike. The wrriter thinks
he can safely say that Bro. Wolling,
the superintendent of the Sunday
School, has every reason to be proud
of this, his first attempt to carry out
the program of Children's Day.
For the song service, the most diffi
cult part of the program, he had the
assistance of Mrs. D. C. Anderson,
the organist, and teacher of music in
the Feasterville school; as also the as
sistance of Prof. Anderson, of whose
school the children of the Sunday
school composed the larger portion.
As the object of thesa exercises is to
interest and instruct- the children,
their parents, and visitors, we feel
quite safe in saying that this end was
successfully acconplished, judging
from the results as evideuced in the
smiling, happy faces of both d-ad
young. The writer heard but one
sentiment, expressed in the words,
"How well the children have done,
especially in their singing; and what
a treat we've enjoyed this '.ay in the
se: vice, the supplement, the dinner,
and our social interc>urse !"
According to the program, the first
address in order was that of the pas
tor,'Rev. P. B. Ingram, of Blackstock.
Those.., of us who know him as a
speaker were ready to enj.>v his ini
mitable talk from the ohject-subject,
"A Lead Pencil." We wish you
could have heard him, Mr. Editor, and
given a synopsis of his address in
your paper for the benefit of the boys
ana girls and the parents of Fairfield
County. I cannot do so in this re
port. He speaks with vim and energy
as if he has something to say and
knows how to say i. His address
t was both'amusing (as should be the
case on such an occasion, and on d
hot day) and instructive. I wish each
boy, and each girl and each parent in
all our noble old State conid have
heard it. The boy or girl who listened
and who was not stimulated to noble
retolves has a mind, as yet, unawak
ened to the possibilities that lie in h:
pathway; and tbe plarent who haard

common sense and his great love, for
his Sunday School, were prepared te

he gave the children, parents and visi
As there was no other address on
the program Prof. Anderson requested
the privlege of a five minutes talk to
the children, most of whom were his
day pupils. He had presented the
children with a banner, in the centre
of which there was a pure whife in
clined cross, and above and below
this, also in white letters, On a dark
ground was the quotation, "In this
sign you will conquer," generally
written in Latin, "In hoc signo
vinces." Prof. Anderson first asked
if anyone could tell him how to go
about constructing' or drawing a
cross (the "sign") as he had done of
white paper; and what were the rules
as to the proportions of its relative
parts. Securing no answer to his
question, he explained the rule of
.measurement for the different por
tions of a perfect cross, impressing
their importance. in drawing or con
.structing this "sign." He then asked
if anyone would tell him the legend
Sor story of the quotation ; and receiv
ing no response he proceeded to relate
the facts as obtained from history.
.This naturally led to a short talk
.about Constantine, the first Chris
tian Roman empnror, and his in.
fluence. As the story relates, he
heard these famous words in a
vision, or dream; and he had them
woven into the stanstards of the Roman
army' as their watchword. So each
boy and girl was exhorted to weave
them into the standard he was bearing
aloft in the battle of Life.
From the "Feast of Reason" we
pass to the "Flow of Soul" in the
shape of a basket picnic dinner spread
out upon a table, furnished by Bro.
Wolling, just in rear of the church
bnilding. It would occupy too much
time and take too much of your.valua
ble space to say all that might be said
about the dinner. Hie does know
whereof he affirms when he declares
that the ladies of this community
know how to minister to the wants of
the inner-man in the shape.of bread,
buisit, ham, fried chicken, pickles,
and "the sich and the like" that stay
on the bottom shelf of the cupboard,
while the custard., cakes, pies, and
"the sich and the like" that stay on the
top shelf of the cupboard have left no
wrds on our tongue, but have left a
lingering agreeable taste en our palate.
The crowd was orderly, and the
writer "shoo'd." only two dogs from
unde.j the table. Whether the writer,
with -the "parson's nose" of a fat,
yung rooster, together with all that
goes with that choice from a fowl, or
Bro. Ingraham, with his p,late of fried
chicken,was the happier man, would
be diElcult to decide ; and as for B3ro.
Wolling', he looked as if he felt happy
himself, and was wishing that "every
body else was in t.e enjoyment of this
sane business '
Nothing but praises we: e heard from
the lips of each and every one as the
crowd melted away at the coming of
