WWiams'x Stlf Instructor. It will con
tain about two hundred ptges, and will be
gotten up aud lu.ly illustrated in tbe biuhest

occur, l he entire science ot learning mut-ic,
on the instruments named, is thoroughly
laid open and made plain to the diligent
scholar, by ample and elegant illustrations.

An apprectioe-boy writes to the Appeal
and makes a complaint that in many manu
facturing shops in Memphis, where boys are
learning trades, it lias been the custom to
'lay off" the boys when buimesa becomes ,
STEAiBOAi
Uull uurini; the hummer mobth9. As our
youcK correspoiiJfnt ttutbJully aiJit, this
nyHlfiu if wront. An apprentice utarU in to
lt;arn a trade; he nvtt probably three or four
dollars a wp-k, and has to work all dfy doiai;
hues and th roukheft oait of th work
around the t-hop, and wai'ing UD' n the jour
neymen, yet w hen summer comes the boys
are told that their KtTVicc re not needed
until trad: op'r.a up uain. The biy hav-
to loaf around the city all summfr without
an opportunity to fret any c -mployuicnt. How
can srx d mechanics be made out of appren
ticed who are treated in thi unjust manner?
It is calculated to make a hard-working,
faithful boy a bad citiz"ii or a poor mechanic.

The question of Sunday laws is in process
of consideration by our people at this time.
No sober-minded christian can think of this
great question without feeling a deep inter
est in it; nor can he approach it withoul
meeting at the very outset difficulties which
he cannot remove, and problems which are
not easy to solve. When we begin to talk
about enacting and enforcing Sunday laws,
we feel it incumbent upon us to inquire, par
ticularly, as to what tbesSabbath is, and sur
vey tbe whole ground well. The whole ques
tion of Sunday and Sunday laws is quite
analotr 'US to the great doctrine of divine
providence to which I called your attention
some time ago. It will bear, deserves and
needs a calm, scholarly, patient, devout in
vestigation upon the part of all those who are
disposed to take sides and express opinions
in regard to it. The word sabbath is a He
brew word, and means a cessation from la
bor rest. There is more than one Sabbath
spoken ot in tbe bible. There are four, viz.:
The seventh day, the seventh month, the sev
enth year, and the seventh seven of years, or
the great jubilee year, which occurred every
fiftieth year It is the Sabbath of tbe seventh
day only that concerns us iu this discussion.
This term Sabbath, which is common in
most profane literature, is purely bib.ical in
its origin and use, aud signifies an institution
that has a remote origin, a perpetual
history, an imponant design, aud im
poses solemn obligations of a religious kind,
und of a religious kind only, in the economy
ot God's moral government of this world.
This sentence indicates quite clearly tbe gen
eral direction this discussion will take, the
particular aim had in view, and comprehends
the sura ot what: I shall say. Let us examine,
ts best we may, the points in the definition of
the Sabbath institution just given, in the order
in which tuey stand.
THE INSTITUTION OF THE EABBATH.
1. Tne Sabbath was instituted by God. It
is true that a hebdomadal or similar division
of time existed universally among tbe Shem
itic and other oriental peoples. It is a fact,
too, well established, that a similar division
txisttd among the Egyptians, as is particu
larly stated, with the names given to the days
of tbe week, by Dion. Cassms (Hist. Rome,
87, 18.) They are the names of the seven
celestial bodies. The things named must
have been known before, though tbe original
reason of the division was lost. The same
Lames cime into the Roman (ecclesiastical)
and Saxon calendars. But they could not so
readily have found place had not a similar
i.ivision, with nami-s, existed among tbe
tccidefitul heathen, I ho ancient Romans and
Scandinavians, although such do not appear
iu classical literature. But granting all this,
bow came it to be so? The answer is inevit
able and plain. It was founded on a great
lHct. It had its origin in the account given
in Genesis, which is the foundation and start
ing point of all subsequent veneration of tbe
hebdomadal number and period of days. The
Sabbath is pursly a bible institution its au
thor is God.
2. God rested on the Sabbath. God did
not cease fn-m His work until the seventh
day, but on that day. the beginning of it, His
woik came loan end. He did not remain
inactive, but simply ceased from the
wtrk of creation. Lange, the great Ger
man critic and profound scholar, says: "The
doing of God in respect to the completed
creation, is of a festive kind (solemn, state
ly, holy), a direction of motion and of an
unfolding of things, now governed by law,
in contrast with that work of God which
was reflected in the pressure of a stormy
development, and in the great revolutions
and epochs of the earth's formation." Says
Dr. Conant, the great Hebrew scholar ot this
country: "Sa long as men, in obedience to
the divine requirements, labored six succes
sive days and rested on the seventh, they
were continually reminded of God, their
creator and sovereign."
6. God blessed the sabbath. Blessed,
t.e., made it happy, nappy, as a rest period :
happy, at a festive or recreative period.
In Exodus, xxxi, 17, God commands the
children of Israel to keep the Sabbath for a
covenant: "It is a sign b-tween thee and
me forever: for iu six days the Lard made
heaven aua earth, aud oh tbe seventh day
He iestej and was refreshed." In Exodus,
xxiii: 12, He sas: "Thou shalt do no work
on the seventh day, that thcu and thy beasts
and thy servants and tbe stranger may be
refreshed." God was refreshed on tbe Sab
bath; it is therefore a day of refreshment.
This is the sense in which He blessed it. To
bliss means, to wish tor, and to promise one
infinite multiplications ot happiness in tbe
course of lite; as to curse means, to wish for
infinite multiplications of ev 1, that is, to im
precate, to pray against. Says Del.tzsch,
"The blessing of the Sabbath must consist
in this, that it gives birth to all tbe festivals
(or rests) of God, and all the festivals of
men." Thus, God pronounced an eternal
blessing on the seventh day, and distin
guished it above-all other days by his special
regard,
4. God hallowed the Sabbath. To hallow
is to take an object out of its worldly rela
tion, and to devote it to God. When God
sanctified the day He blessed it; when He
made it happy He made it holy. He with
drew it from labor for the sake of the world,
and established a festival for Himself. "In
six days work God had condescended and
given Himself up to live for the world; on
the Saboath He ordained that the world
must live for Him." God hallowed it. In
these particulars you see the institution of the
Sabbath, the seventh day, a seventh portion
of time; that God is its author, and that He
did it at the very beginning of the history of
man. Let us now glance briefly at
THE HISTORY OB' THE SABBATH.
We have seen it began in Eden. We know
it was prominent in the Mosaic economy, for
we find it written with the finger of God on
the table of stone in the fourth command
ment of the sacred decalogue. But this was
two thousand five hundred and thirteen years
after it was first instituted. Is tbera any
thing known of the Sabbath during that two
thousand five hundred years? Yes; and I
think you will presently agree with me in
saying there are several incident.! allusions
to it, which will serve to show that it was
known to and observed with more cr less
Htrictness, by the old putriarchs of the bible,
from Adam ta Moses, from Eden to Sinai,
from the fall to the giving of the law.
1. The first probable notice of it is Genesis
iv, 3, while Adam and Eve were still living
and comparatively young. Certainly they
had not forgotten it in this short time; cer
tainly they were religious and observed it
themselves; certainly they taught their chil
dren to observe it; certainly the pious Abel
obeyed their instructions in thiB regard, anr'
..-i:l... 11.. CUL..l. L. al

day on which they were most careful to per
ftrui their religious worship. Accordingly
we read : "In process of time it came to pass
that Cain and Abttl brought their substance
lor an offering unto the Lord." This is nar
rated iust as if thev were in t.h hahit n,
no
doing so. How natural to sunnosn thpv r-amo ,

of days." Is it not very probable, taking into
account what has been said, that this "end
of days means a fixed time, the seventh
day; that it indicates, though incidentally,
yet quite naturally, a well-known period of
time?
2. Afiolher notice .of fh
days is found in Genesis viii, 7-12 NoaU
bad sent out of the ark two birds. "And he
waited yet another seven days, and again he
sent forth the dove from the ark." It re
turned. "And he waited yet another seven
days, and sent lorfh the dove: and ah .
turned to him no more " If we rem,nihar
that Methuselah was a ritrhteoua man that
he obeyed the instructions and preserved
tbe institutions, social and religious,
which his father had t?iven him'
that he was contemporary with lAdum, the
fitst man, over three hundred years, and with
Noah, who survived the flood, six hundred
years, can we doubt that here is a direcr, in
dication of an established division of time;
or suppose that it is any other than the orig
inal seventh day, which God in Eden blessed
and hallowed as the Sabbat b. a dav of rest
aud worship? Says the scholarly T." Lewis,
in Lange, "Tbe more we examine these acta
of Noah, the more it will strike us that they
must have been of a religious nature." He
did n t make these observations and send
oat these birds as mere arbitrarv acts, nromnt.
ed simply by his curiosity or his impatience. (
God had "shut him in," and the pions Noah r
was lovajtg ior aivine guidance. This ail
..
men of faith and prayer are tscaBtomed to
do. When he sent forth a bird, be did it as
a religions act, seeking to learn from the
habits ot birds the condition of tbe waters,
and thus study the indications of Providence.
These acts of his were not without prayer,
He "inauired cf the Lord:" but the Sabbath.
tbu seventh day, above all others, was the
da r of such religious devotion and prayer.
Adam banded tbe Sabbath down to Methu
selah, Methuselah to Noah, and he brought
it iicrots the Mood.
;l. Another unmistakable mention of the
division of time inX.3 weeks of seven days is
recorded in Genesis xxix, Ll-ZA. La ban de
ceived Jacob in giving him Leah instead of
Kachel, whom he loved and for whom he
served. When Jacob complained. Lab in
said, "Complete this one's week, and we will
give thee this one aUo. And Jacob did so.
and completed ber week." Shem, Noah's
oldest and most pious son, was oon temporary
with bis tatter nearly bve cuodred years,
and with Jacob over a bait century.
it is scarcely reasonable to suppose
that the sacred institution of the Sabbath
had been forgotten in that short time, viz.,
from Noah to Jacob, since Shem still lived.
14e institution ot the altar and the services
attending it had not been forgotten. But it
was about as old and no more important and
sacred as a religious feature of the times,
and as a monument of the past, than was
the sabbath day.
4. The next mention of the Sabbath is in
Exodus, xvi, 22. The descendants of Jacob,
whom their father had instructed in the du
ties of tb altar and the seventh day, have
migrated to fc,gyct, become a numerous peo
pie, and are now on their return to the land
of their fathers. During the first and the
greater portion of the time spent in Egypt,
the Israelites were perfectly free to practice
and enjoy all tbe rites and ceremonies pecu
liar to their religion. This they did until
oppression took away their liberties, soon
after which tiuie they escaped across the Red
sea. Bread failed them. Manna was sup
plied. They gathered every morning a sup
ply for tbe day, an omer for each one. "And
it came to pass that on the sixth day they
gathered twice as much bread, two omers tor
each one." Why did they do this? They
knew the next was the seventh day. It does
not appear that they were instructed to do
this. It is mrely said that they gathered
twice as much on the sixth day, and no more;
"and all the rulers of the congregation came
and told Moses." Does that seem like Moses
had instructed (hem beforehand? By no
means. What did Moses? "He said unto
them" (all "the rulers of the congregation"
who "came and told him" what the people
bad done) "this 3 thtt which the Lord hath
sa d, 'To-morrow is the rest of the holy Sab
bath unto the Lord. Six days ye
shall gather it; but on the seventh day.
which is the Sabbath, in it there shall be
none.' " It seems the people were right and
their rulers wrong. And tbe conclusion that
they remembered and wer- in the habit of
ob-ervitig the Sabbath can scarcely be re
sisted. 5. Exodus, xx, 8, gives an account of tbe
occasion on which the original Sabbath insti
tution, so long held in the memory of man by
mere tradition, was sanctioned, honored and
made the subject of a definitely formulated
written taw. Here, amidst the smoke arid
thunder that crowned and shook the top and
base of Sinai's sacred mount, when the
heavens bowed and God came down in ter
rible grandeur and awful majesty to hold
converse with man; and the ten command
me nt s were first published to the world, the
duty to observe the Sabbath was again made
known in the fourth. I call you to observe
tbe significant words with which it begins:
"Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy ."
There could be no significance, no propriety
in the use of the word remember, if the peo
ple had no knowledge of the Sabbath day
before them. The truth is, the very way in
which it is introduced, as well as many other
considerations, shows that Sabbath observ
ance for religious purposes was something
with which the people were already familiar.
Having saown traces of the Sabbath from
the creation to tbe giving of the law, there is
no need to pursue its history in this respect
further. Being thus incorporated in the The
ocratic code ot the Jews, they observed and
kept it at the ha.ard of fortune, fame and
life itself, in captivity and dispersion, and
brought it down the centuries to the present
day.
The time that remain to me is short. I
can do no more than offer a few brief re
marks on the following topic:
THE DESIGN AND OBLIGATIONS Of THE SAB
BATH, As to the design of the Sabbath, it was
made for man.
1. It is for his temporal good, and subser
vient to his highest interests. God instituted
it as a gift to his creatures.

the tribunal by which every offender must

2. It wa made for a reason of universal ap
plication. All men are under obligations to
observe the Sabbath, and one no mora than

3. God made it sacred and followed this
act with the command to keep it holy. All
men are under obligations to keep tbe tb
bath, cut of regard to his own individual
good and the word of the eternal God.

Editors Appeal The imperfect report
you published of what I said last Saturday at
the chamber of commerce is calculated to do
me injustice, and I respectfully ask that you
give this statement the same publicity.
Your report says "that, in response to a di
rect question, I admitted that the jetty sys
tem at the passes had deepened the channel
from 8 feet to about 20 feet." There you
stop, and don't say that 1 said another word.
What I said was this: "The South pass had
been deepened from 8 feet to about 20 feet;
but that was no more water than was at the
the Southwest pass before the work at the
South pass commenced; that this was little
if any beneat to commerce." While I never
denied this, I said there were certain reasons
why no greater depth could be obtained. I
also sttted that as far back as one hundred
and fifty years ago they had as much water
on the bar. I also relerred to the report of
Engineer Howell, for 1877, which showed
depth of 21 feet at the Southwest .pass, '.
that vessels went to sea through 'thai Bfla
drawing from 20 to 22 feet. I furt'ne' stated

THE WOOLEJI M1L.LS.
The- Memphis Stockholder Deride to
Rebuild the Uereotly Destroyed
Woolen Mill at Fort Pick,
erlast An Enterprise
which Needs and
The recent destruction of the woolen mills,
in South Memphis, was a calamity to our city
in many way. It destroyed valuable prop
erty, stopped a much-needed industry, threw
nearly two hundred men and women out of
employment, aud gave a check to our manu
facturing interests, which every sensible citi
zen desires to see fostered and flourish. It
was feared that the stockholders would not
attempt to make a new venture by rebuilding
the miils, but we are pleased to be able
to Btate that such is not the fact.
The Memphis stockholders of the Mem
phis cotton and woolen manufacturing com
pany held a meeting yesterday and appointed
a committee to settle with the insurance
companies. It is tbe intention to rebuild
the mills immediately, and by the first of
January next to have them in complete run
ning order. Outside of Memphis about
twenty-five thousand dollars ot the stock is
held, and it is believed that even the gentle
men who hold this stock will be unanimously
in favor of rebuilding, but even should they
not favor the enterprise, tne Memphis stock
holders will rebuild the works. There was
a sad sight down at the office ot the
burned out cotton and woolen mills, at
Fort Pickering, on Saturday last. A num
ber of women and girls were paid off. They
wept as they received their pay, because by
the destruction of the mills by fire their oc
cupation was gone and they were left with-
out employment or hope ot getting any dur
ing the long and dull summer months. This
is a severe b (Miction to them, especially in I
Memphis, where so few avenues of honest
employment are open to women. We have ;
no factories here that can give such employ
ment, aud hundreds ot women are only too
willing to secure work by which they can
support themselves and families. By the
first of January next, at farthest, the cotton
and woolen mills will ba aaia ready tor
business, but until then the former employes
wiil have to seek work elsewh re.

Bliss Bailey's Experience.
Lie, England, April 16, 1878.
A Miss Bailey writes: "I have derived
much benefit from Benson's capcine porous
plasters, and can fully indorse all tne good
qualities claimed for them. They, indeed,
give relief and comfort quickly, and are so
far superior to other porous plasters that they
can be worn several times, and, when taken
off, leave no sores or coldness, which is often
experienced from other plasters. I have
been afflicted for years with rheumatism in
my joints and a stiffness or weakness in the
small of my back. I have worn the capcine
