Aftor a few weeks my sister re
covered sulHeiently to Ik; assisted to
tho i'rotil porch, where she would sit
and admire the white roses which em
bowered it. Sometimes she would
press my own Tittle Rose to her
breast, with lb ml caresses, and wish
for her a happy future.
We never mentioned her husbands

to sec her. I had resolved in my
heart that she should never return to

all our loving care could not keep her,
and we saw that she was slowly sink

Not a murmur escaped her lips.
She was the same gentle creature she
had been all her life.
I had removed her from the bed to
a couch near an open window, aud
was about to leave her, when she
took my hand and said, "I want to
talk to you."
Involuntarily I sank on my knees
Putting her arms around my neck
she said, "My dear brother, there is
revenge in your heart. 1 sec it iu

she said, "until you promise to leave

tone which touched my heart she ex
claimed, "Oh! mother, my brother
has refused my dying request!"
No! no! I said, I will not refuse, I
promise everything you wish.
"I am so happy," she said, "seal
the promise with a kiss."
When I took my lips from hers, she
smiled sweetly, then closed her eyes,
ami we knew our Rose had gone to
bloom in the Paradise of God.
1 placed white roses around her, in
her collin, I strewed them on her
grave, and even now, a bower of
white roses covers that sacred spot.
I have never heard from my sister's
husband, and I have never had his
name mentioned to me until she men
tioned it to-night.
That man is my sister's murderer,
although his crime is one which the
law docs not reach. You may tell
him the lady he saw, and heard sing
is Rose .Mailland, (that was his
wife's name,) and warn him to keep
out of my sight. For eveil after the
lapse of years, I was afraid to trust

The train was precipitated down a

The scene was frightful. The
screams of the wounded and the
groans of the dying were heart-rend

Why is not whont cultivated in
Orangeburg County? Because cot
ton is on the brain, and farmers arc
ignorant of the mode of cultivation;
or in other words, do not understand
the plant food in right proportion, to
apply to the soil in order to succeed.
Critic admits, that the natural soil
will not produce wheat to pay, neith
er will it produce cotton,ornuyother
crop. Critie intends not only to
prove to the farmers in this letter
that wheat is a paying crop, but to
demonstrate in the open fields, the
c'irst, to remove the erroneous
tions held by'iariners'^that' wheats?
too uncertain a crop, that it will rust
four out of live years. We ltdtnit
this to be the case, but it can be
Now, .Mr. I'M it or. 1 armors are mis
taken about the cause of rust iu
wheat. They attribute it to clima
tic influences, which we will refute,
by bringing up Mr. ("barley Culler
and William,]. Snider, who made,
the one 25, the other 2'J bushels per
acre. Climate had the same eifert on
their wheat as the man who math; a
complete failure. We know that
wheat is cultivated in the torrid mid
frigid/one successfully, ami nliv
not iu the temperate? We must look
tosonieotbereau.se for rust. What
is the principal cause of rust iu
wheat? I answer, a want of/?nie in
our soil. I would not have farmers
believe that lime is all the plaut
needs. As I have often repeated,
to cultivate tiny crop successfully,
we must understand its habits, and
the plant food in proper proportions,
that it needs. M. Vi lie; the French
man, has proven, that large crops of
wheat can be taken oil'the land year
after year, when, lime, potash,
phosphate of lime, and
ammonia exist in the soil
in good proportion. Dr. Ravenel, with
the cow pea and ash element, furn
ishes these element of plant food to the
soil. He has brought the coast hinds
up to thirty bushels of wheat per
acre. This is proof enough to satis
fy us that your lands, which are
physically superior to the crust hinds,
will remunerate us handsomely in
wheat. Another fact should be re
membered in planting wheat, that It
is a deep-rooted plant and should not
be planted in lands in which the sub
soil contains stagnant waters. The
coast lauds are underdraiued. The
secret of success depends consider
ably 011 the variety of seed selected.
We should select the variety from a
hot and not from a cold climnto,
which has been the custom, and is
one of the causes of our failure to
.successfully cultivate wheat in this
BE ECU EK OX CHURCH MEMBERSHIP.
Thert are multitudes of people who
have joined the church and that is
about all that they think necessary
to make them Christians. They re
gard the church as a sort of railway
train, and having got on board, the
engine must do the rest. Some try
to get a place in a first-class parlor
car; others are content to go second
or third (lass; but, having got upon
the train and put themselves in
charge of the conductor, they think
that they have done enough?all
that is required of them. But pro
fessors of religion arc not always
posessors of religion, and a man
may be in the Church and not have
quo of those qualities which consti
tute a Christian, and he may have
all of those qualities and not belong
to any church. I have known
churches where those who conducted
them wore so devoid of religion that
a conscientious man ought not to
have gone into them. Still, most men
arc helped a great deal by joining a
church. A man outside of a church
trying to live a Christian life, is like
a pear tree out on the high-way?the
wheels rub it, the boys rob it and the
hogs gnaw its bark and it bears very
'few pears, but that tree if planted in
a garden and cared IVA* properly
would yield abundantly. Still, join
ing a Church docs n?>t make a man a
Christian. A man may be active in
good works and yet no Christian; he
may be efllorcsceut uud emotive?it
only shows that ho has an emotive
nature, but it is no proof of Chisti
anitv. Persons that overflow with
feeling arc not better than others,
although they may be more useful. A
man may be conscientious and just
and always try to do right, but that
is uot the whole of religion; it is too
angular, too cruel.
Young saints are the devil's toad
stools, they come up in a night and
urcgoiieina night, for it is a work of
^-'jiii_roJjiMouie t ho possessor of saint
ly qualities, and this ought to lie au
encouragement to you that are dis
couraged because 3*011 arc not perfect.
No one ever was Christ did not say,
?Come to nu perfect.' but, ?( ouie to
me and learn.' Conversion is very
much like courtiug. and a Christian
life is very much like living after
marriage. There is much in learn
ing how to live together and no man
ever learned how to live with another
without giving a great deal and tak
iug a great deal.
A judicious wife is always nipping
oil" from her husband's moral nature
little twigs that are growing in wrong
directions. She keeps him in shape
by continual pruning. If you say
anything silly she will affectionately
tell you so. If you declare that you |
will do some absurd thing, she finds
some means of preventing you from
doing it. And by far tue chief part
of all the common sense (Were is in
this world belongs unquestionably to
women. The wisest things a man
commonly docs arc those which his
wife counsels him to do. A wife is a
grand wielder of the moral pruning
knife. If Johnson's wife had lived
then' would have been no hoarding all
up of orange peel, no touching all the
posts in walking along the streets, no
eating and drinking with a disgust

had been married he never would
have worn that memorable and ridi
culous coat. Whenever you lind a
man whom you know little about,
oddly dressed, or talking absurdly,
or exhibiting eccentricity of manner,
you may be sure that he is not a mar
ried man, for the corners arc round

generally much more sense than
their husbands, even though they
may be clever men. The wile's ad

The following, from an exchange,
is true to the letter: The most, un
fortunate day in the career of any
young man is the day on which he
fancies there is some better way to
make money than to earn it: for from
that feeling spring the many ixtrav
agant and visionary plans which are
indulged in for the purpose of gain
ing a livelihood without labor. When
a young man becomes thoroughly in
fected with this feeling, he is ready
to adopt any means for the accom
plishment of his objects, and, if he i
foilcd in his efforts, upon the crest of
the v ave which has already mounted,
and in full view, is the temptation to
crimes, to shield him from the dis
grace which he thinks must inevi
tably follow in the wake of defeat.
To those he yields, aud the first he
realizes he finds himself the violator
of the law, and a criminal in the eye
of the community, and the inmate of
a prison, waiting trial, all brought
about for t he want of a little manly
firmness in the outset of life to prompt
him to choose an avocation where
the penny earned would bring with it
its sure reward.
