Testimony of Words. One of the most striking natural evidences of the truth of revealed religion with which the study of language has furnished us, bears upon the doctrine of the immortality of the soul. TI;e voice of Nature, speaking iu the formation of the words for die, in the Greek tongue, presents a very curious fact for the rejection of the thoughtful student. This language was formed, nOt under the more elevating and reiining influences of the philosophy of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle; not under the purifying power of the deeply religious Greek tragedies, but it came forth little by little from the minds of every-day, jWodding men ; and those men, it must be remembered were heathen. Under such cir cumstances, we may expect to find that the words are made naturally, and that they .express the actual thought of the mind which first produced them. With this principle to guide us, let us ex amine some of the words for die, in lan guages whjch were spoken where the gospel was not known, and where the people were heathen. In the Greek we have several forms of expression by which the idea of dying is represented. Apopsuko, oikomai, oiko, fiikeo, apoikomai, apoleipo, and apeimi ton liintj Sl mean to die; and the idea which is common to them all, as well as to per eo, in the Latin, is that of a departure or separa tion, or going from one place or state to .another. The idea of absolute destruction, or annihilation of the living being, or agent, seems not to be intimated in the root-idea fit any one of these expressions. Apopsuko rather indicates a departure of the soul. Oiko, and all its derivatives, present the idea of going or departing. Apoleipo means po leave. Apeimi ton biou is a pretty close translation of our popular expression, "de part this life." It has often occurred to us, that Cicero, $rho wan one of the most careful students of words of his day and generation, and whose mind was often perplexed with the heathen theories of the immortality of the soul, raitrht nave louna more reliable instruction in a careful study of his own word pcreo, than was furnished by Bme of the extended treaties which he was in the habit of con suming. The word means to die, and it gets this secondary signification from the primary one of going through per and eo.) Com pare the noun pcriculura which contains the pame root idea. In English we have depart. We say perish, (connected with per and eo.) The first time we ever heard the expression "go up," it was used by a flat boatman of the Mississippi. JIu had received a mortal wound, and said, '.'I am going ?," therebv indicating that he was about to die. "Go under" is a very co'ininon expression among the trappers and Indian fighters in the Western Territories, and has the same root idea and the Fame popular significance. Now, we hink that there is considerable weight to be found in all this concurrent jLestimony, gathered from various parts of Jthe earth, from people of different tastes and habits of thought, and all without the leant suspicion of design or collusion. It all goes to show that the popular voice testifies po the existence of an innate idea of immor tality. Whenever this voice is hoard to Apeak, it seems In say, "When we die, we do not utterly pass out of existence; we go lino some oiner slate or place.7' The Latjy homo (man), together with its adjective hum anus (human), seems to sug gest a lesson of instruction to us, il the woril lcof the same family iishumi (the ground). Was there lingering in the minds of these Roman heajthen iom trace of a long-forgot-pen revelation, which had tuught theiran fstors that the Lord God made man out of the dust of the ground '! yJU tin? Homnius-and-Iiernus account of th founding of Home, together with a great deal more of what we used to learn with so much enthusiasm about the heroic age of arly Home, has been utterly swept away by the profound and iconoclastic criticism of Niebur and others, and as little or noth ing has been done by those scholars to set tle upon a reliable account of theancestry ofhHoman people, may we not harbor a ipicion that they may have been a sort of lost tribe of the house of Israel, or that, at all events, they had, iu their earlier history, an opportunity of hearing something of the Mosaic 'account of the creation 'i Ji up such opportunity existed, how did "rgil get his idea of a Messiah, so striking ly presented in one of his pastorals? V do not pretend to dictate, but we think we may speculate, if we please, in a field of thought where tiw scholars themselves seem able to do little else. The word right, in its various modifica tions iu several languages, is a standing tes timony against the abstract speculations of rationalistic writers on ethics, and in favor of the Christian code of morals, which makes the will of God the rule of life. In Latin we have rego, to make straight, to draw a straight line, and hence to ruk. Then we have rectus (right), or that which is made straight; (re king), or he who keeps things straight. The idea of straightness is pre served as the root-idea of all the members of this numerous family, of which many are found in English, ak" rectitude, direct, erect, The word right itself shows in its orthography a close kinship to the Latin rtgo, sometimes written with an i, as in tirigo, to direct. Right, then, js that which is straight, and the lex (legs) drew the straight line. What a strong confirmation of the principles of Christian ethics do we find here! This view is still further confirmed by the formation of the word which expresses the opposite of light. Wrong (past part of wring), same as wrung, is a standing memo rial of the great truth that immoral conduct docs violence to nature. That which is Ttr.mg is twisted or wrung out of its proper natural and straight position. The French r.S2 the same form of ex ression exactly. It is for (twisud), from the Latin torque'o, En gl'h torture. All this thows what violence man must do to nature before we can do wrong. Of course, by the term nature, we mean his original, straight, God-given na ture, and not the perv rted, dci t:d second nature, the wrung and distorted, fallen na ture, which has bern introduced by sin. "ime on the word right, wo would oall ! attention to the fact that the French word j for right condemns everv man of stupidit v t lunacy or unreason. fasCnrlvIo r,.,i,i ..iiS il), who dovsnot an right." The word is s . ussaidMo Wright; when he h,as reason, (il a raison). Every Frenchman then who does wrong, is, bv the very formation of his language, convicted of folly. This view of the case presents a strong innate testimony in favor of the right. But the people whose highest ideas of right sim ply make it reasonable ; who, in the origin of the word seem to have attached no Divine sanction to the law of rectitude and the prin ciples of life, might well be expected to de luge their land witu blood, in au insaue at tempt to do away with the God of nature and of revelation, and to substitute the god dess of Reason.

This article is prepared expressly for composting with Cotton Seed. It supplies the seed with that in which they are deficient, and furnishes the planter with a first class Fertilizer at the smallest cost. 200 pounds of this article, composted with an equal weight of Cotton Seed, as directed by printed Circulars, will fertilize an acre sufficiently to pro duce an increase of crop, under favorable conditions of season and culture, to double and treble the natural product of the soil, while under no consider ation can it fail to compensate for the cost. It is alike applicable to Corn and other crops. This arti cle has been in use for the past two years with the most satisfactory results. Jxo. S. Rcese & C.Q., Gen'l Ag'ts, Baltimore, Md.

Your attention is invited to the ACID PIIOS- mers from this market last season, and the testhnony of some of them has been furnished as follows, viz : Dr. D. W. Flow of Pioneer Mills, savs that he composted this Acid Phosphate according to in structions, and applied 400 pounds of the Compost to the acre, in the cofjou drjll, and that he had a good stand and fine growth of cotton, which, not withstanding the severe drouth, gave such satisfac tion as will induce him to use it on his next crop. Says it should be composted as early as practicable after Christmas. Dr. J. M. Strong of Steel Creek, says that he used this Acid Phosphate compost and the Cotton Food Fertilizer and stable manure in the same field, in order to compare their merits, and that the Acid Phosphate Compost made the best yield of the three. He applied 300 pounds to the acre. Major S. Watson Reid of Steel Creek, says he used the Acid Phosphate Compost last season on both Cotton and Corn, and it gave satisfaction on both, that it doubled the yield of Corn. Dr. I. W. Hcrron of Steel Creek, says he used the Pacific Fertilizers, Elawan No. 2, Cotton Food and Ike- Acid Phosphate Compost, and that the yield from the Acid Phosphate was decidedly the most satisfactory. He expects to use it for his next crop, and desires to have it in compost heap as soon after 1st of January as practicable. Other farmers who used this Acid Phosphate ' composted as instructed, speak ia like terms of com- i mcnaation oi it. Uesides proving itself to be a first Class Fertilizer it is entitled to your favorable con sideration because it does nop cost more than a fourth as much as farmers have been paving for commercial manures. Instructions for composting will be furnished with the Phosphate. The Atlantic Phosphate Company also prepares a Manipulated Fertilizer, fully up to the standard, at a greatly reduced price, iking the Aireut of the Coinpauy in Charlotte, I am prepared' to furnish cither iu any quantities desired, and will be pleased to receive your orders.

It is entirely harm less and perfectly free from any poisonous substance, and will therefore take the place of all the dirty and unpleasant preparations now in use. Numerous testimonials have been sent us from many of our most prominent citizens. In everything in which the articles now in use are objectionable. Crystal Discovery is perfect. It is warranted to contain neitner Sugar of Lead, Sulphur or Nitrate of Silver it does not soil the clothes or scalp, is agreeably per fumed and makes one of the best dressin-s for the Hair in use. It restores the color of the Hair "more perfect and uniformly than any other preparation " and always does so in from three to ten days, vir tually feeding the roots of the Hair withall the nourishing qualities necessary to xU growth and healthy condition; it restores the decayed and in duces a new growth of the Hair more positively than anything else. The application of this wonder ful discovery also produces a pleasant and coolin effect on the scalp and gives the Hair a pleasing an" pearance. We cali special attention to the fact that a limited number of small trial bottles can be had bv those wishing to try it. You will notice that in pursuing this course our aim is to convince by the actual merits of the article. r?'r4Forlsa,le !l?
