The Obscrvniicc of (he Habljalli Editors Appeal As those who feel a deep interest in the subject of " Sab bath Desecration," now so freely dis cussed in your columns, we would re' spectrally solicit space iu the Appeal for the following article, written by as profound a theologian as this country has over produced. The writer is Kev. Charles Hodge, D.D., and the extract is taken from his recent work on System alio Theology. s. and d. EXTRACT. It is a historical fact that Christianity is tbe law of this land, and has been from tha beginning. As the great ma jority of tho early settlers of the coun try were from ureal .Britain, tney de clared that the common law of England should he the law here. JJut Christianity is the basis of the common law of Eug land, and is therefore the hw of (his country; and so our oouris have repeat edly decided. It is so pot merely be' cause of such decisions. Courts cannot reverse f-ict. Protestant Christianity has been, is, and must be the law of tho land. Whatever frotestant cnutianity forbids, the law of the land (within its sphere, that is, within the sphere in which civil authority may approptiately act) foibids. Christianity f jrb'ds polyg amy and arbitrary divorce; eo does the civil law. Rimanijm forbids divorce.even on the ground of adultery; Protestant ism admits it on that ground. Toe laws of all tho States conform in this matter to the Protestant rule. Christianity for bids all .unnecessary labor, or the trans action of worldly business, on the Lora's day; that day, accordingly, is a diesnon tiirouguout ine ianu. nu contract ja binding mcde on that day. No debt can ba collected on the christian Sabbath, If a man hires himself for any service by the month or year, he cannot ba re quired to labor on that day. All public olliees are closed, and all oflicial busi ness is suspended. From Maine to Geor gia, from ocean to ocear, one day of the week, by the law of the lanJ, tho peo ple rest. This controlling influence of Christianity is reasonable and right. It is In accordance with analogy. If a man goes to China, he expects to Had the government administered according to the religion of the country. If he goes to Turkey he expect to find the koran supreme and regulatibgall public action, li re goes to a Protescant coun try, ne naa no rigm iq oompiam snouiu he find the bible in the ascendency and exerting its benign influence, not only on the people, but also on the govern ment. This principl'', of course, has its limitations, .put whero the religion of a people requires nothing urjust or cruel, cr in any wsy immoral, then those who como to live where it prevail? are bound to submit quietly to its con trolling the laws and institutions of the countiy. When Protestant christians came to this country they possessed and subdued the land. They worshipped God intl his con Jesus Christ aa tho sa vior of the world, and ihey acknowl edged the scriptures to be the rule of their fith and practice. They intro duced their religion into their families, their schools and their colleges. They abstained from all ordinary business on the Lord's day, and devoted it to reli gion. They formed themselves as christians into municipal and State or ganizations. They acknowledged God in their legislative assemblies. Toev pre3criosu oai.u ta m ;aKen in ins name. They closed their courts, their plaoea of business, their legislatures, ' and all places under tne P'Wie control, on the Lord's day, They declared clirlptfanjty to be part of t'-ie common law of tbe land In process of time, thousands have como among u who are neither Protestants nor christians. Some are papists, pomp are Jewp, Bome Infidels and some a'.heista. All are wejeomed ail are admitted to equal rights and privileges, ah are allowed to acquire property, and to vote m every e'ectlon, made eligible to all offices, and Invested With equal influence in all public aiiJir?. 4-u are aiiowtu to wor snip ai inty piease, or net to worship at ail, if they see lt. Io man is molested for his relig'on or for his want or religion. More than this cannot be reasonably demanded. The demands of infidels are unjust. If chris tianity is not to control the action of our municipal, State, and general gov ernments, then if elections ba ordered to be held on the Lord's day, christians cannot vote. If all tho business of the country is to to on, cn that as on other days, no christian can hold olipe. We should thus have, hot a religious, but an anu religious test-ac. Such is the free thinker's idea of liberty. But still fur tber, if Christianity is not to control the laws of the country, then as mo- nqjramy is a pecuilauy christian institution, wo nan have no laws against polygamy, atbitrary dlvqrco, or "free love." AH tbia mutt be yielded to the anti-shristiau party. Since the fall of Lucifer, no such tyrant has fcejn in-de known to men as August Comte, the atheist. If, therefore, any man wishes to ante-data perdition, he hss nothing to do but to become a free thinker and join in tne snout, "lava government has nothing to do with re ligion, and religion baa nothing to do with civil government j A I'len j'o- thp .Sabbath Again. Editors' Appeal I am sorry to find that I reckoned, without ''mine host" when I made an appeal to the Appeal in behalf of the babbath day, for 1 hoped to have in you a nrm any m this mat ter. A few Sunday nights since, at the annual meeting of the Memphis and Shelby Coiinty bible epclety, J heard Dr. Stainback read a very commendable article from your paper In regard to the great and good work of disseminating the bible so that it mieht bo possessed and read by all the families in tbe land. Anyone would have thought that you indorsed and approved that book. Now. asidofrom all this melanco this clamor lief. about rights, freedom, etc., everyone to think and do as he or she pleases, iu this ; glorious land of liberty, where, let ma eay en passant, we are, I fear, abjut to fall through too much freedom there is an old proverb Eomewhere which says "No man has the right to do aa he pleases, unless he pleaees to do right." But who is to determine what is right Is every man to be a law unto himself Rather would wo answer, the bible is tho word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice; "the only chart to guide our barque on life's tempestuous sa. The whole suriect is narrowed clown to this ouo question is the bible true, or is it a cunningly devised fable? Are its requirements just or unjust? Are we a christian people recognizing God's authority over us, and his right to command us v Has ne not blessed and prospered in enough to call forth our gratitude, and make us wiiliDg to re member the Sabbath day to keep it holy ? And now, as you say so much about every one having the right to do just as they please upon this day, 1 wish mere ly to ask, Have we not laws, or Sunday ordinances, prohibiting men from trade aid traffic on this dy? It seems to me that way back, In past times. I have seen notices in tbo local columns of our papers of men being fined for violations or tho Sunday ordinances; anu ji n Is wrong to keep open stores, banks and other places where money is made, it does seem to me equally wrong to allow the theater and other places of amuse ment to be opened, and money paid for the same, i Know that uari ochurz and others of his views have said that Sun day concerts, operas and such like places have dono more good for the masses than all the churches in tho land, and there is a class in this country who are trying hard to aooiiau the tsabbath altogether. If there is a Sunday ordi nance it only needs to be enforced, and our city omciais are tne men to do it. You speak of the Jows who do not believe incur Babbath ! I strongly nus- pect that if they lived in Jerusalem, and had a nationality of their own now, as in days long gone by, and we should happen to be sojourner in their country, we would have to pay taxes, and con form, outwardly, nt least, to their laws respecting their Sabbath, and wa would not thins it any great hardship either. It atrihos me that thoy are not the class of persons in our midst who are clam orous f jr opan places of amusemeatp. and doing a9 they please, without regard to laws or custom, mey are, and ever have be eo, a lf,w-abi ling class of citi zens. Ic is tiue, they do not believe in our particular Babbath; but they do not make their unbelief t pretext for the outward violation of the laws regulating cure, as samo others do. They would be tho last people to do any such thing, if hey Knewit to ua unlawlul. We know that at the first, when God had finished the work of creating tho world, he rest ed on the seventh day, and ordained it a sabbath of rest, to bo kept holy unto himself; insomuch that tie penalty of death was pronounced against all who th-juld transgiees. That was for the government of hi3 owu peculiar people, tao Jews, which clearly shows that it, with ail the ceremonial and judisial bearing of if, was to have its fulhllmont, aud then to be superceded. And when Chrhtcame, and the work of man's re demption was completed by his keeping the whole law for man in every respect, by hi3 death upon the cross, thereby paying the psna'lty du9 to Goi's violat ed law by man's disobedience, and by rising again from tho dead upon the first day of the week for man's justihcatioa. showing that tho way is now open the work finished that being a work of far greater importance, so tospcak, of great er magnitude and glory than that of creating the world. The Sabbath was changed from the seventh to tbe first day of the week, thenceforth to continue till the end of tho worj.1 the christian's Sabbath. Now for the truth of all this I can only refer you, or any one, to that same oieessd old pook, the bible. There it is, and whomsoever will may read, it is Uod'a command, "Itsmember the Sabbath day to keep it holy," and he will curs9 tho people who know and do not cbsy. It is the teachings of this book that have made us as great and prosperous as we are. Lose at the meet cultivated, enlightened nations that ever existed without the bible and the Sab bath, and eea how far they could rise, unaided by diviuo revelation. Oiioothoi1 thing you nay, MtSdra.

How the Proposition to Abolish the First District Levee Board has been Received. The Complications of a Heavy Debt Representing Nothing Proposed Remedies. Some days ago we published in the Appeal a letter from General James R. Chalmers, calling the attention of the peopte of the first levee district of Mississippi to sr measure proposed by him in the legislature, by which, to use his own words The levee board or the first district will be abolished because It is bankrupt and can afford no relief to the people. The tax here tofore levied will be collected In future by the sheriffs of the different counties of the dis trict, and paid into the treasury of the State for the payment of the levee bonds. The general also invited public meet ings of the citizens concerned, through which he might have some public ex pression of approval or disapprobation. This letter of General Ch-lmera was copied into the Friars Point Delta of the eighth, and met with severe criticism and decided disapproval. The follow ing, from tho article of the Delta, will indicate the scope of that disapproval: This bill will benefit the bondholder alone tho speculator who purchased al a depreciat ed value. The district, which Is the only loser In consequence or non-fn!flIIment-the non-completion of the levee should recelvo all the benefit which may arise out of the de preciation ol Its bonds. Therefore let the people continue to redeem them as they now do redeem the bonds at the denrei-intinn nmi pay their taxes dollar for dollar In bonds or coupons. The State and counties, like the land-owners, will be Important losers by this uiu. wwuiwic muuaiiuua oi acres 01 -rich lauu nave ueen inrown up Dy the people In consequence of the enormity of taxation. Raise these bonds to their par value and thou sands moie will follow the same late, and Stato and counties will lose taxation on that amount. Senator Chalmers says the levee board of the fitst district Is bankrupt; so it Is, and that "the lands oi the district have al ready been taxed more than they can pay " At present our levee indebtedness being, say uue uiuiiuu uuunmiu uuuus, wmcn are worm from about twelve and a half to twenty-five veuis uu tuu uuuur, is, iu mci, oniy one huu dredand twenty-flve thousand to two nun dred and fllty thousand dollars. Why, then, should the legislature force us to pay one mil lion dollars in money for one million dollars in bonds, while their commercial value is oniy one nunureu anu twenty-nve thousand to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars? a. oanurupi aistriciauu an over-taxed people In reply to this, to a petition of citi zens and to a letter from his partner (Judge Reid), General Chalmers sends the following letter, which appears in tne jjciia 01 tne imeentu: Jacksok, Miss., March 0, 1S7G. To Messrs. R. N. Harris, Jackson, Fisher, J. M, Rochester, and others: Gentlemen 1 have lust receiver! a unti. tlou signed by you in reference t j the levee bill now before the senate, and. from nnnver- sation had with some or the signers in Jlem- puis, 1 am uuuMit'u mat inose signed made a misappreueasiuu 01 ius lacis. lour petition states that you do not desire the present levee board abolished, becau-e the levee would break and that It would cost ten times the amount to rebuild it, and necessary to protect It now: and you ask In vague and general letiuBiur --auuii leKi&J.uiuil as will enattlf, l.hi. present board to guard and protect thn le.ven now erected and save us from oveillow by the coming high water." I would be obliged If some 01 you wou'u explain 10 me how the continuance ot this levee board, who have no iunus 10 worK witn, can prevent the levee irom nreaiiiDE. anu 11 vou won 1 inn gest what kind ot legislation vou mean when ,-ou say sucn as win enable you to protect tho evee now erected. Do you want adnlilnnni tax on tbe land? I hope not. for I think: tlm lanas are aireauy laxeu as mucn as they can bear. Do you mean to have a cotton tax? ir so, wuy uo on want 10 Keep levee commts s oners, a president, secretary, and tre 'surer In ofnee with salaries to consume your tax, when one comnil-ioDer eoula do the work of all of them? I would be glad If ou would show me how the aboliiloa of ibis ooara ana me stopping 01 their salaries can. bv an v nosibilitv. s vou tav. take fmm ,nn "the benefit of the reduced price o' levee scrip of which we win be deprived If iho scrip and tax are put into tho rcch of a moneyed ring." 1 would be glad if you would nit me how the continuance of the levee beard tin prevent moneyed men iruin baying up tho levee bonds If th -y wish to, or bow tne nbolit:on of ihe boaid can "nut ihn scrip and tax in the reach or amoueyeu nn." Youiay, in conclusion of your pelitiu.i to the legls'aiure, ' We ask that jou will simply ex act such law as will give us a ta' sufficient to repair and complete qur present lev'eo be fore Ibenuiu Irj iimi." Npjy, .f auj o( you will prepare thp simple bill you speak of and bend 1 m 11; , i win jmruuuo3 11, iuio tne senate. but I apprehend you will not And it si simple a matkr as you In'lmate. I vrlte till he. Oiuse my partner Judge Reid, haz, written to me mat 1 nave oeen misrepresented about this b.ll. and that It was none hv snmo r,,mr- deslrousto lLluiome. 1 recoeuize all 01 iim signers ol this petition as personal friends, and feel sure that they have been deceived by some one. Yours respectfully. JAS. It. CHALMERS. To this the Delia responds oditoriallv as foljows, in the game issue; We publish in another column n letter fmm this gentleman to several of our citizens. Why the general or any one else shonid con ceive tho Idea that this community desired to do him any wrong, is to m inconceivable, for no man has had more evidence given him of uuuuueiice uy any communiLV man imp. he.- n given to Mr. Chalmers by ti,ls ne&pto. And why Jr.dge I,eld should cohoefve the idea that there was an Intention to do him an in Jury is to us equally as s range. But as we can't fathom the Ideas of men, or account for the reasons on which they frequently act, v e will here simply say that tho entiro flatter has grown out of an error cme-,nere. Xoone balipves;, nor have we ever heard It hinted, that General Cli'i" oouobi or iihit. anytning which he believed at tUo time wouiu result in wrong tq ais people. In the 8a.rne column wi(h this we find a bill which occupiei over two columns, entitled " An act to fund the custand ing matured and unmatured Bonds. Cou pons, and other outstanding indebted ness 01 tne Levee .qoard 01 District No. 1, and tor otiier purposes." 'fl'hisi act," tuu jjcuu, luiorni us, -nas n;en prepared at the request of several eltiaena, with a Trlam f n Ik. ............ I i i "0" luuujug mo present Knilintf levPflilfilit anil olvli... .. anding ' -e tne country the means with which to repair the l&vce. Under this billfcur taes will be about eight cents per acre on the cleared land, which it now costs twenty cents an acre in currency to pay, even at the reduced price of serin: our debt will ha rpiinrnii from one million dollars, with eight per teut. interest, to toree nunored thousand dollars, with six per cent.; a.nd while we have only eight years in which to pay mu mm, wo nave tniny in which to pay the latter." This act is now on its way to the legislature, and its nassap or rejection will indicate the strength of the suggestions of General Chalmers, made in absolute good faith, and, as we believe, with the best intention of reliev ing the people he represents of a very ocveie uutuen.
