Religious Charity, or Charity in Religion.—The Living Church says: A man may have a true affection for his country and yet be a thorough-going party man, from a conviction that the principles and policy of his party are most conducive to the welfare of his country. But devotion to a party, how ever pure its principles and sound its pol icy, does not itself prove devotion to the state, since the former may be actuated by divers motives, even low and sordid ones. Petty self-interest may explain the whole of a seeming patriotism, and so a true patriot may be a zealous partisan; but it does not follow that a zealous par tisan must be a true patriot. In like manner, strong attachment to our partic ular religious communion may essentially be a love of the Gospel, seeing as we be lieve its doctrines, rites, and institutions are of the Gospel and most favorable to its spread and influence; but such denom inational attachment is in itself no evi dence of genuine evangelical affection. It may be hereditary prejudice, pride of sect, religious partisanship. We may be good Christians and sound churchmen, staunch Lutherans or Calvinists; and it is equally true that we may be sound churchmen, staunch Lutherans or Cal vinists, and withal sorry Christians. Pious and earnest believers may be narrow • ii i it. .i.j mi__v _ U1IUUCU dUU C«CU ui^Ub^vi. JL 1XVJF UIUJ Ui. near-sighted, or can see only in one direc tion. They can’t take an honest look all around—or, from their theological train ing, they can see only through the me dium of their own special orthodoxy.— Confined in their gaze to its colored spec tacles, they are sure they see the truth; but they have not the least idea that it can be seen through any other optics or from any other point of view. Still, they may be very good people. But we must not carry this apology lor them too far. They are lacking in charity—for charity, whenever it has its due sway, has a mar velous effect in clearing and enlarging the mental vision. THE INFLUENCE OF MUSIC. There is a strange, unaccountable and dream like beauty in music, which can Bubdue the proudest spirit and gliding into the hush of the heart, will nestle there, stilling its more tumultuous throbbiDgs, and filling it with calm peaceful memories of the far long ago. All tribes and in all times, have owned the spell, rom the hour when Pan first taught the Thra cian Shepherd to carve his love notes in the invisible air, and fill the summer nights with softest, sweetest flute music, down to the pres ent moment. It is a universal language, un derstood by all, and awaking strange pulsa tions even in the most obdurate heart. Most of us have experienced the luxury of tears, when listening to an old ballad. We know an old man who, having led a long career of vioe and orime, was at length ban ished from his country; and who, while under iroing his period of banishment, amidst the / wilds and jungles of a drstant land, heard in /, he summer eventide, a sweet female voice, I . liuging in bis own language, the very song s rbioh had lulled him to his infant slumber, ( rhen he knew crime by name, and knew it ^ nly to abhor. It had been sung, too, by the . radle of an infant sister, a little one who had ied young, and now in heaven; the mother, 11 oo, was no more. tS“ Mark Twain says Horace Greeley 1 mce tried to make a living as writing r □aster and fuiled. His copy was, “ Vir ue is its own reward, and the scholars v 'ot it, “ washing with sope is wholly ab- a urd” Josh Billings says: “ I am vio- s ently opposed tew ardent sperrits as a j )everage, but for manufacturin’ purposes 1 ; think a leetla of it tastes good.” 1 For the West Jersey Pioneer. South-Western Georgia, June 19, 1869. Mr. Editor.—Everything in Georgia is just now in a furore again. The Supreme Court in the case of White vs. Clements has rendered a decision that negroes can hold office in Georgia. Now, say they, the “nig gers” will get all the offices in this section, because they are in a majority, and if they are not capable of doing the work they will hire white men from the North to do it for them, and that they hate worst of all. A. northerner is not safe here if he has an opinion, unless he is the very worst type of a democrat. lie must not be a half way democrat; he must hate with a more viru lent hatred than they themselves, anything north or northern. But, at the same time, they are willing to crouch to any northerner in public or private if there is any hope of bagging him. They are always ready to kiss or curse them. They always carry a pocketful of each. Whom they cannot buy they like to kill. Crops in Georgia generally are in a flour ishing condition, and bid fair to go a great way towards repairing the broken fortunes of the planters. But here are a few figures : One railroad brought to Macon in thirteen articles of food alone, over fifty thousand dollars, from the west, and this is said to be not half the imports of the other road from the north and east. That is to say, the two railroads bring into Macon, the Great Cen tre, over $150,000 worth of the necessaries of life per week, or nearly eight million dol lars worth per annum. Now the exports of cotton, the only article of export of any ac count from tlus point, is reckoned at be tween six and seven millions. Here is a pro lific soil, delightful climate, plenty of tim ber and abundant water power; therefore, are more facts necessary to show where to locate intelligent farming operations or man ufactures? That little word “intelligent,” expresses all that is needed in the farming or labor generally of this State. There is plenty of skilled labor here, but slavery never made intelligent labor here to any great extent, that is manifest in the utter want of inventiveness. Every wagon of sensible appearance comes from the north, or is made by Yankees located here. But there is a brighter day for Georgia. Oliver Tweede. IS THERE A GOD? How eloquent does Chataubrand reply to this inquiry: There is a God! The herd of the valley, the cedars of the mountains bless him; the insects sport in his beams; the elephants salute him with the rising orb of the day: the birds sing of him in the foliage: the thunder proclaim him in the heavens; the ocean declares his im mensity; man alone has said, “ There is no God !” Unite in thought at the same instant the most beautiful objects in na ture; suppose you see at once all the hours of the day and all the seasons of the year; a morning of Spring and a morniug of Autumn; a night bespangled with stars and a night covered with clouds; meadows enameled with flowers and a forest hoary with snow; fields gilded by tints of au tumn; then alone will you have a just conception ofi^he universe. While you are gazing on that sun which is plung ing under the vault of the west, another observer admires him emerging from the • l 1 1 < n .1 . l , • ^uucu gaica ui me caai< jjy >y uat iuuiu* ceivable magic does that aged star, which sinking, fatigued and burning in the shade of the evening, re-appear at the same in stant, fresh and humid with the dews of the morning? At every instant of the the day the glorious orb is at once rising resplendant at noon-day, and setting in the west, or rather our senses deceive and there is properly speaking, no east, west or south in the world. Everything reduces itself to a single form whence tho king of the day sends forth a triple light in one substance. The bright splendor is perhaps that which nature can present that is most beautiful; for while it gives us an idea of the perpetual magnificence and resistless power of God, it exhibits at the same time a shining image of the glorious Trinity.” THE DONKEY AND THE SALT A FABLE. A donkey was loaded with a heavy sack of salt, and on his way came to a stream of water through which he had to wade. The smooth round stones at the bottom caused him to slip, and he fell down with his burden. It was with great difficulty that he could get up again; but when he had risen from the water, the salt being partly dissolved, dropped gradually with the liquid from the sack. In a little time it became manifest to the donkey that his load was not so heavy as it had been before it was immersed in the water. “ Now,” said he to himself, “ I shall remember this, and when I have a great weight to carry, I will lie down in the first stream to which I come, and then I shall have but half the weight to carry.” The next time he was loaded with a sack of sponges; and although the burden ___A__a- A l. - Xh. 1*4. l*a* H UO UVl IVIJ VHVy UQ mitigate it by dipping it into the water. When he eame to the stream, he quietly sunk down in it—and the sponges sucked up so much water that his back was al most broken by his efforts to get up again. He was near being drowned before he could get fairly upon dry land. Experience taught the donkey that the effect of water is not the same upon all substances. Said I to little brother Howard: “there! iour toes are out of your stockings again; eems to me they wear out in a hurry.” living a comical leer he said : “Do you now why stockings wear out first at the Des?” “No.” “Because toes wiggle, nd heels don’t 1” ■ — ■ ♦ ♦ » -- Young Lady.—“Oh, I am so glad you ke birds; which kind do you admire lost ?” Old Squab.—“Well, I think the goose, ith plenty of stuffing, is about as good 3 any.” “How well he plays for one so young,” lid Mrs. Partington, as the organ-boy erformed with a monkey near her door; and how much his little brother look? ke him, to be sure 1” .
