his having been about for several
days, and it was generally believed
that this tramp had spent not more
than twenty-four hours in our
swamps, and had gone away to parts
unknown to us. The lit t lo excite

was rapidly subsiding among the

tile 'darkies eyes were and the more
protuding, the Inrg'cr the bear looked
' to him. It is surprising how the
poor brute could stand such stretch

(which is stnnge for a bear) was as

cnhcluded that there was ten full

most wonderful stories told, and the
rtfnsl astonishing feats of strength
attributed to him. He could jump

himself directly in the path where
the monster took his nightly prome

I'.ruin to delay until a late hour his

down the eyelids of this champion
who was to get so much the better

They have a candidate for Clerk,

loach upon is, shall they have all the

The Convention will be composed
of probably one hundred and twenty

In the face of these facts the duty

Editor Or mgeburg Time*:
The first of August 1880, being:i
holy day (say the sabbath) we arose
early in the morning anil drove
along through the meadows and pica
sanl groves, and the beautiful song
stcrs flitting from branch to branch of
the tall oak ami pine, and t he sing
ing of these beautiful songsters made
us happy on our road to the (.'attic
(.'reck Camp-meeting, at the same
time thinking wc would lie made
more happy by hearing the songs of
saints, and the words of God illusi ra
ted by able divines. Wc soon landed
and heard the trumpet sound call
ing all to appear and hear what the
promise of the Lord was to poor
mortal man. We repaired to the
altar of worship. Wc heard beauti
ful singing, ami an excellent exortti
lion. All seemed to be good, wc
perfectly happy and delighted, noth
ing could give us more happiness*.
Hut we soon found that rapacious op
pi c. sion of the poor, and oslent at ions
g merosity to tbxs rich, seem to go
hand in hand. What large s.miis are
often grabbed or w asted in feasts for
their rich friends, compared with the
scanty pittance w hich is given to the
1.r neighbors that was situated on
the camp ground prepared to give
bread to the hungry. Hut the rich or
ostentatious, only would call those
whom were dros*j 1 in wltal they
thought was a rich man's apparel,
and the poor went unnoticed, still
lu iiig m ar neighbors. Persons ap
pear to be neighbors, and uro
often slighted, nol that they can- for
t'teir rich provisions, only for friend
ly acts. Give n dog a po-iee of bread,
although In* seems cross, he beeom >s
pleased und Ion.I of you, but, it
does not take bread to make man
fond of you, only .-.how him respect
und he is \ our friend, t hen w hat
good tan be expected from this OS
t cubit ions profusions.
Rev. Ilrown's explnnations and
practical observations were grand, i
was admirable, so much so that I
thought about old limes, in the days
of old father Towns. I remember
he came walking up to n tent with u
stange young man, ami said brother
Sandel here i.s a poor young man
that has not been eared for, he has
nol had any bread to eat. I heard of
his death the other day. I know
there in no need lohe sorry, for lie is
caught up into high Heaveu.
We fared Sumpliously, hut our
neighbors had no baud in it, those
who called us to partake with them
we believe good hospitable fa indies,
they know nothing about ostentation.
1 must say there were imitations of
t be parable of the rich man and I .a/.a
rus. The ministers of the gospel did
their duty, for they warned all to lice
from the wrath to come, and lay hold
on the leaching of the Savior, so may
we be all guided in the truthful way
