ROANOKE PRESBYTERY.
FOURTH DAY.
Botdtox, Va., May 3,1869.
The Presbytery met at 9 o'clock A. M.,
and was opened with prayer by the Rev.
J. H. Davis, acting as moderator.
The minutes were read and approved. .
Dr. 8pragin8, from the Committee on
Finance, reported that eighteen churches
had collected for sustcntation $83.61; for
foreign missions, $21.70 ; for publication,
$16; and for Presbytcrial fund; $131;
which money had been placed in the hands
of Mr. D. J. Paxton, of Danville, to be
placed in the treasury.
Mr. Drown, from the Committee on Sup
plies, offered the following report ; which
was received and adopted :
The Committee on Supplies make the fol
lowing appointments: Dr. Peck, two Sab
baths at Leesville; Mr. Davis, two Sab
baths at Diamond Hill and one at Leesville;
Mr. Wharey, two Sabbaths at Dethany ; Mr.
Moseley, two Sabbaths at Bethany and two
at points yet to be determined ; Mr. Mar
tin, two Sabbaths at Castle Craig and one at
Diamond Hill; Mr. Alexander, two Sab
baths at Rough Creek; Mr. Carrington,onc
Sabbath at Diamond Hill and one at Castle
Craig ; Mr. Vaughan, one at Castle Craig
and one at Rough Creek; Mr. Matthews,
two at Castle Craig and two at Cascade ;
Mr. Wharey, two at Pennel: Mr. Sharer,
two at Amois Creek ; Mr. Drown, two at
Rough Creek ; Mr. Kirkpatrick, two at Cas
cade ; Mr. Davis, as many aa possible at
Douglas.
Dr. cpragins offered the following resolu
tion, and asked that it be referred to a com
mittee :
Whereas this Presbytery has from time
to time enjoined upon the churches their
duty to defray the expenses of their dele
gates to the meetings of Presbytery and
Synod, and have so far failed to effect the
object desired, therefore be it
Resolved, 1. That in addition to the
presbytcrial fund the churches be assessed
an amount sufficient to pay the expenses
incurred by their delegates, including pas
tors and stated supplies, in attending the
meetings of Presbytery and Synod, and
that this assessment be added to and in
cluded in the presbyteriai fund, aud paid
into the treasury as part and parcel of sa;d
fund.
2. Resolved, That at each meeting of
Presbytery a committee be appointed to
audit the accounts of delegates and issue
an order to the treasurer of Presbytery for
the amounts found to be due, and that each
delegate shall present hia account, so soon
as ascertained, to the Presbytery then in
reesion, or at the next subsequent meeting,
to be referred to said auditiug committee ;
and that no account 6hall be allowed unless
presented in the tirfte specified.
Mr. Drown moved that it be deferred,
and come up regularly on the docket at tha
next meeting.
Mr. Moooiey offered as a substitute thet
it be referred to a committee, which be in
structed to make their report at the next
Presbytery. Adopted, fdessrs. Alexander.
Friend, nu 1 Spragins, were appointed the
committee.
Mr. Drown, from the Committee on Sta
tistical Reports, handed in the report;
which was adopted, and ordered to be sent
to the General Assembly.
He announced that this Presbytery now
consiataof twenty-two ministers and thirty
thrco churches. It is composed of the
counties of Mecklenburg, Lunenburg, Char
lotte, Halifax, Pittsylvania, Heurv, and
Patrick, and a portion cf Campbell, Frank
lin, and Prince Edward.
Mr. Young, candidate for licence, was
called on then to read his popular lecture ;
wh?eh ho did. from General Epistle of
Peter i., 5-t?. jlLc audience listened with
earnest attention and apparently with deep
interest.
When the lecture was concluded, Mr.
Moseley said that it was scriptural, instruc
tive, and clfHsical, and lie took pleasure in
moving that i: be sustained as a satisfactory j
part of the ex iaiuatien. Adopted.
Dr. irprngius said that tho young brother
had made one assertion that he wanted to
call the atteution of the Presbytery to ; that
is, that faith is the parent of all virtue.
Ho wanted to know in what sense it was
used. [Laughter ] lie thought regenera
tion was the parent of both faith and vir
tue ; and if Mr. Young was correct, n gene
ration was only the grandparent of all
virtue". [ Laughter ]
Mr. Young said he did cot think there
was any difference in his and the Doctor's
creed, but that the Doctor was only tracing
the genealogy of virtue farther back.
Mr. Davis, from the Committee on
Narrative, here presented his report. lie
said the state of religion was about the
same that it was when the last report was
made; that there had been some lew addi
tions to tho church by examination and by
certificate; that one-half of those who had
been admitted on examination had been
received into one church, and many of the
churches had received 110 additional mem
bers; that the prospect was melancholy
and gloomy, and the ministry must be earn
est and energetic in their work in order to
revive the spirit in the laud.
Mr. Moseley moved that the name of the
church that had received the large propor
tion of the members be inserted in the re
port.
Mr, Wharey thought that the name of
the church (Danville) had better be left
out, but the revival should be mentioned
that had been in progress there.
Dr. Peck thought if you mentioned that
much you must mention more. The im
pression would go forth that the pastor of
that church (Mr. Kirkpatrick) is the only
minister who has dono his duty, and will
not be just to the other members of the
Presbytery; besides, tho revival com
menced in another church, aud the Dan
ville church is hardly entitled to the credit.
Dr. Spragins was afraid if the name was
inserted the other churches would say:
" You Presbyterians lie still and do no
thing, and when we get up revivals you
claim the credit."
Mr. Brown thought that if you left out
the name you might leave out any mention
of the revival; the fact that there had
been these additions to the Danville church
would show that there had been a work of
grace going on.
Mr. Moseley's motion was then put, and
lost, aud the report received, adopted, and
ordered to be forwarded to tho General As
sembly.
After granting leave of absence to Dr.
Spragins and Mr. Kirkpatrick, the Presby
tery took a recess until 3y2 P. M.
evening session.
The Presbytery met at the hour ap* i
pointed.
Mr. Davis offered the following; which
was adopted:
Resolved, That the sessions of all the
churches bo required to send up to the next
meeting of Presbytery a statement of the
white members in actual communion.
Mr. Brown read a letter from Rev A B
Carrington excusing himself for absence
on the ground of the sickness of his family
and asking that the condition of tho vacant
ohurcheB be improved, especially those
above him in Campbell, where they were
exposed to tho incursions of other denomi
nations.
Mr. Brown also offered the excuse of Mr
fcT ,^8eace? wLo had charge of a
Xh*n Preached his trial
The roll for criticism being called, Mr.
haley said he was much pleased ; thought
Mr. Baskervillo had the elements of a good
speaker, but was prone to fall info the
hortatory stylo instead of grappling with
his subject. Ho knew the young brother
did not mean to lecture the Presbytery, but
it sounded like it.
On motion of Mr. Davis, the trial wo a
sustained as satisfactory.
On motion of Mr. Moaeley, the ezanr na
tions of Messrs. Young and Backer?.He,
having been approved in separate part.,
was approved as a whole.
Mr. Alexander, from the Committee on
| Arts, Sciences, and Language, Baid he took
I pleasure in stating that Mr. Baskerville
had distinguished himself in his examina
tion before that committee.
Messrs. Young and Baskerville were duly
licensed to preach the gospel. Mr. JBatker
ville, on account of his youth, was licensed
with the condition that he spend another
year at the Union Theological Seminary.
Mr. Moscley offered the following :
Resolved, That the members of this
Presbytery return their thanks to the citi
zens of Boyuton for their kind and Chris
tian hospitality during the eession of this
body.
Adopted.
Tnc minutes were then read and approved,
and the Roanoko Presbytery adjourned,
with prayer, to meet again at Buffalo church
on the 15th of August next. C.

Correspondence of the Slcbmond Dlsputeb.
Black Walnut, )
Halifax cou.ntt, Va., May 4, 18G9. \ j
Some time last year a negro who ran
away from his master in 1801 returned to
his native place. While at the North he
acquired some little education and became
a preacher. He preached among the ne
groes here several months. Seeing their
situation, and feeliDg for them, in Novem
ber last he imported direct from New
Hampshire two "inarms" to "teach the
young idea how to shoot." Tbay came by
the solicitation of a negro ; were met at tho
depot by a negro ; and took quarters in a
house with negroes. For several months
they have been conducting a prosperous j
school, having fro'di eighty to one hundred
scholars. In tho mean time they purchased
a lot to erect a church and school-house on.
It was bought by subscriptions of the peo
ple of Vne North and the negroes here. The
poor, ignorant negroes, elated at the idea
of having a church of their own and send
ing their children to school, willingly
cast their money ia " the treasury." They
worked week after week " without money
and without price." All the hogs, chick
ens, and eggs, in tho neighborhood were
carried there to feed the workmen while at
work. The marine " watched with jeal
ous circ the progress of the work, seeing
each timber iw is was laid on the other, j
Thus have things gone on for three months,
and the house is nearly completed ; but
about two weeks ago two more actors came
on the suge, and the sctne changed. Two
preachers alias carpet-baggers came, and
by their Soft, sweet talk almost persuaded
the negroes ti let them take charge of their
church and be their pastors, kicking out
r'ne negro preacher that came last year.
But this is not all; there is a day of reck
oning for all things. Upon investigation,
the receipts for the money paid for the j
land had been given to tho " inarms," and j
the obligation for a deed given to them as j
individuals; and, moreover, the preachers'
aie mechanics, and arc going to build shops
on the church property, and bring their
families here. The negroes are- terribly J
incensed, and have arisen enmasso against
the Yankees. Thus we have a small war 1
ia our midst. They have abused the
Yankees in every way ; to which they re
ply, with ? sanctified air, " May the Lord be
with you." Tho negroes here are finding
out, alas! too late, that their friends are
only friends as long a3 they can make
money out of them.

" 0 my sweetest ami 0 my dearest.
How rich the summer is, having you
Ov??r your head the sky is clearest.
Warmest sunshine and freshest dew.'
So with a lover's flattering breath,
IT. a butterfly to his daisy saith.
" Ah my sweetest, and ah my fairest!"
Brusliiiig her face with a tender touch
" Of all the llowers you are the rarest
And all the meadows are full of such :
O royal rtn-, sitting up alone,
Is there anything more for you to own ?
Ho, blue heavens that bend above ber :
Ho, little daisy down in the grass !
Who would guess her to have a lover
More than others we daily pass?
Why love coraeth or stays away
Truly there s none but love can say.
The little brown robin leafy-nested,
Quiet and ?innll and plain is sue
llut listen to robin scarlet-breasted !
lie is as proud tis proud can be.
None could praise her with sweeter words
if she were wife to the king of birds.
The sweetest home in the forest's bosom
None but the happy owner knows;
And to be called the fairest blossom
It isn't needful to be a rose.
O love, you surely are blind to see
In all the meadows only me !
Truer than truth, love, when you flatter,
Say, do you know, O great, grand skies,
That all your shining's a useless matter
Without?he said it !?without these
eyes ?
; He proud, my daisy, my pearl," saith he
1 For you are the crown of the world to
me!''
TISE lft'NUSCAK?E CLERK.
It was a downfall indeed?or it aeemtd
eo then.
There was I, as comfortable a young fel
low as wore nice kid gloved in Boston. My
salary was eighteen hundred a year. I had
a reasonable vacation. 1 liked the other
clerks, and they liked me. I understood
my business, as it proved, only too well.
Best of all, perhaps, 1 had fitted up my two
rooms at Mrs. Thayer's as prettily as heart
could wish. The bed was large enough,
and you could air the bed-room. The car
pets were ingrain, of small figure ; they
woro cheap, but of that dark claret and
black which give a warm tone and make
things comfortable. Not too many pictures,
but those hung low enough. Not too many
books, but the free list at the old Boston Li
brary, four or five cards at the public libra
ry, and three or four friends on the staff
there, a ministers right at the Athenieura,
and a pleasant intimacy with Loring. I
owed no man a dollar. I had no enemy in
the world. I was at home in a dozen nice,
cordial families of friends ; and what more
could man require ? Of a sudden the bolt
fell! Or is it a sword that falls 1 1 be
lieve it is a sword. Make it "sword," Mr.
Proof-Reader. Of a sudden the sword fell!
Thus:
The office that 1 was in was the newly
established 41 Methuselah and Admetus
Life Assurance Company." To say as
surance instead of insurance is rather
natty ; it sounds English, and people fancy
the Barings and the Bank of England pay
the bills. 44 Methuselah " was to attract
the biblical and 44 Admctu3 " the classical
gudgeons. For, though the great hope of
the man who insures his life is that he may
be beloved of the gods, and so die young,
yet, practically, people insure in the vaguo
reeling that they thus take a bond against
death or turn him the cold shoulder. It is
somewhat as you carry an umbrella in the
hope of preventing rain. We had got our
advertisements and prospectuses out, and
really wo had a great many new fea
tures. If you held our script eleven years
and four months, and then did not sell
it for two years and one month more, at
the end of that time we declared a dividend
of four-nineteenths of all the profits before
undivided, after striking a balance between
two-eleventhB of the riskn and seveDty
three per cent, of the premiums, reserving,
of course, 937,273,642.17 to secure the cou
sins of the bond-holders. That feature may
have been in some other companies, but I
never saw it. We had a very fine sign in
front of our office in Queen street, with a
picture of Methuselah kissing Admetus,
[ <r'l cryu g in tho corner, because
her huobaid could not die, I believe,
j Within, we had h velvet carper for the pre
eident's room, tapestry carpet for the direc
tors' room, English Brussels for the
secretary's, American Brussels for ours,
and that nice, clear Russian mat, that
smells so pleasantly of tar, for the custom
ers. We had comfortable chairs and all
the newspapers.
I nhould have been there to this hour I
suppose but that one day a veryetupid cus
tomer came in. Not but this often hap
pened. But this day tho president found |
his velvet lonesome, and had come forward
into our office. I thought ho was reading
the Comhill, but, as it happened, he was
listening over his epectacles to me. That
sentence ia not quite right, but I cannot
alter it. People do not listen over their
spectacles?they listen over their collars ;
they " peek " over their spectacles. Per
haps he did that, too. Well, I explained
and explained to the customer, who finally
went away without customing, lie took
the little pink book, and the large blue
pamphlet, and the card with tho head of
Methuselah, and both the little cards ; but
he did not take out a policy, and he did not
say he would. 1 am sure I did not wonder,
but it seems the President did.
" What did you say to that man ?" said he.
"I explained the system of life insu
rance?I mean life assurance "?said I, "as
well as I could."
" Yes," said the President. " But what
did you tell him about the invalid lives ?"
" 0, I had shown the Northampton ta
bles, and tho Carlisle tables, and the equi
table tables, and I repeated to him Cowpor's
lines to the Registrar."
" I know, i know," said the President,
who is a little hasty, though he is my aunt
Lucy's brother-in-law, which nccounts for
my being there indeed ; " I know all that,
but what were you saying about invalid
lives ?"
" Why, I explained to hirn that nothing
was so certain as the average law of death.
Wo had these tables, and so wo kr.ew on an
average just how long people would livo. !
And we fixed our risks accordingly, so as to j
meet the average. And he asked rno why
he was to go to a medical examiner, then.
And I told him that it was because we only
wauted to insure healthy lives. And he
asked me whether only healthy lives came
into the tables of mortality?whether they
were only healthy people who lived in Car
lisle and Northampton and the rest?and
why wo did not do our business on
our own principles, and take healthy
people and sick peoplo together. And I
told him that if the company did not
make any profit, we could not keep up the
office. And he asked why we did not say
so in the prospectus, and what was the use
of making so much talk about the certainty
of the average of mortality, wheu we had
nothing to do with the averageof mortality,
but only with some of the best lives in the j
community. I told him that was our busi
ness, and not his. And he eaid lie thought
the profit of the business ought to come to !
the people who paid the money. Ar.d 1 j
said if he thought that he had better go to j
a mutual company ; he would find one the
ether side of the street. And thc-a ho went
away."
It was tho longest address I ever tnauc to
my aunt's brother-in-law, and it did not
teem to be satisfactory. Ho scowled and
said, " I dou't wonder." And then he went
a way. The next day I received a note in
forming rno that my services were no longer
needed. He inclosed a check for the bal
ance duo me? fifty-seven dollars and eleven
cents?and that was all. I took my urn- j
brolla and my cfiice-coat, bade the clerks
good-bye, ani went home. And I have i
never been there since.?The Ingham l'a- j
