to mm tPiBiT of Praying for the Soldiers. More than twelve ruonlba aeo, vrc drop- ed the parting tear and gave tbe farewell i fo a weeping mother and loring sis ter?. We rero going to fight tbe bat tles of our country, and when we ask ed tbe m to pray for us, they replied Onr prayers shall ever follow thee." We ask d the church in which we had been brought np from ourchildhood, to remem ber uain their pray era, and we were per mittee! to hear the "prayers of tbe church inour behalf, even before we left, antici pating the trials and temptations through which we were boon to pass. We met our brothers and Bisters of the Division room, for tbe last time the place where we had so often met and pledged ourselves to remain firm to the cause of temperance, and to seek the-good of our fellow men; where we tad bo often been cheered with the 6miles f those we loved, and charmed with the aolemn yet'delightful music, " Father of mejeies condescend to bear our fervent prayer," fec. We again, with tearful eyes," renewed tho covenant' not only to continue faith ful advocate, of tbe Order of the Sons of Tern jxrancc, but to pray for each other. 'SotUtour parting, though painful, was not altogether unpleasant, for we bad hop ed that we would meet again in a brighter circle than that. - We bade adieu to friend at home, 'Twaathua wo left them there; And oh 1 we thought where e'er we roam. We'll have their constant prayer. Thus we left our many friends, and tho our heart was sad at parting, yet as love of country and duty urged us on, we felt that we could climb mountains of trouble, assisted by that Hacd whose power was constantly besougbt in our behalf. We were tbusnabled to ovcrcome'many trials and difficulties that seemed mountain high to us; tor often when gloom and sadness would seem to surround us, and danger and even death would stare us in the face, we would call to mind the promises of our friends to pray for us, and then in our im agination, we cquld see, maay beams of light piercing the heavens, and concen trating at the throne of God; some as cending from the family circle, tome from the church and smo from the Division toora, besieging a throne rich in mercy ; and all these prayers offered for me. It waaJjnFje,were constrained tocry my soul ; and why art thou disquieted within me? Hope tnouTU voa , ior i shall yet praise; him for the help of his countenance." Th us have we often been induced to pray for ourself, when we remembered that others were praying for us. By this means wc are often, not ouly comforted, but en couraged to continue "Faithful .to the end," that we may obtain "A crown of life." Ohl bow many soldiers have been encouraged to pray on, fight on and hope on, till tbe war shall end, that we may 44 come off more than conquerors through Him that loved us and gave himself lor us." Bit alas! a change has certainly taken place. The soldiers, to some extent, seem to be forgotten. A few weeks ago, after being sick tor months, we were kind ly permitted to visit the loved ones at home. After a few days rest, one evening, we hearcl the cburoii bell, in loud tones, giv ing notice that tbe hour for " Soldiers' prayer meeting" was at hand. We had often heard of these meetings and of ten thought of them when in camp ; and imagined that we could see many kneel ing together offering up their fervent prayers for the protection of husbands, brothers and sons that were out upon the bloody fields of Va. But alas 1 when we entered tbe church we saw but few thero to spend an hour, praying to the God of battles for our potection. On another ccasion, we understand that only two lit tie girls, out of the many inhabitants of this beautiful town, met with the ministers to pray for the soldiers ! Oh 1 reader, is there encouragement to bo found at home for the tempted and sorely tried soldier f When we walk our streets, and see and hear men cursing and blaspheming the name of God, can we axpect anything but titter destruction for our wickedness? When we remember that our existence, as a nation, is tbi evened, and know that it depends alone upou God whether we pros per or whether we be destroyed in wickedness-, fbouid not we repent in dust and ashes, and "Ail men everywhere pray ?" We leav this foi the church, the reader and an frnlightetiod "country to answer. " Lord tliou fcaft niourg ed our guiltj land flt-hold th)- people mourn ; Shall vengeance always gu;de thy hand, And mercy ne'er return ? lneath the terrors of thin eye, Earth's haughty towers decay; Thy frowning mantle spreads tbe sky. And mortals melt away. Onr Zion trembles at thy stroke, And dreads thy lifted band ; Oh 1 heal the people thou hast broke, And t-ave tbe sinking land. Our Tro ps beneath, thy guardian hand Shall gain a glad renown ; 1 'Tis God who makes the feeble stand, And treads the mighty down." EKUD. Cabarrus county, N. C. 'Give me something to harden ay Heart' J So said a middle-aged man, as ha entere v, the bar-room ol a tavern and walked up t the bar-keeper. Here L , give m Something to harden my heart? , It was utttrfd in part; evidently as r. yut: lu ; rr, as he spok.j, he looked aboir. tU iu.ui ior the taiUe Vif approbation. An ; yet there was a snter in the tone of tb request like the jeer of soras fiend from tbe pit, lor tbe speaker 'and all his associates well knew that the bar-keeper was a pro fessor i f religion ; and they knew, too that tie naa no ii:e apology that le an only the bar-lWie hired to neiiorm a service about which, personal)', he might have bad scruples, lor he was the owner of the hotel as well as bar-keeper in it. and a man that they knew was -cot wanting in sense, or ignorant of the grit truths an rousing ap- pea.s tnat nave been poured fortu on the subject of temperance. To this man was addfessed the call, 'Give me something to harden nay heart!' Ai.d ht knew" what was uent, and tool; down, the decanter of brandy y and handed it to speaker, that he mijlit help himel. And as he did 0, a cold shudder passed over me, as I thought of that exp ession of the Saviour, 4 Woe fin to the world because of offences I It must neetU be that offences corae ; out woe to that tuan by whom the oflence cometh ! Something to harden the heart ! Alas, too true a description of what the one asked and the other gave hirn 1 Beyond question it hardened the hearts of both of the one again to drink. - and strain to sneer at religion, and again 10 tuake light of the leartul fact that his own heart was haraened, for. ruin : and of the other, to smile unon the , - r L one that insulted alike himself and his pro fession nf religion, and to pell his principles, and his self respect, and his conscience, all for the paltry price of tne glasi? that was purcnaseo. Something to harden the heart ! Remem ber it, young man, and touch not the social glass. Remember it, parent, and permit not your chjld, and invite not your friends, to partake oi it iteiuemDer it, ye dealers, who, for filthy lucre, are pouring out the tide of death, and hardening your own hearts .and inose ot your Tictims, for the judgment. Remember it. ve friends of temnerance. and i ' i v see, m the light of it, how blessed is your v . - worK, by which you maykeep the hearts of thousands tender, and save perhaps their souls from death. Something to harden the heart f- What the scoffer asked for is.not the only thing that will do it You may harden your heart not only by tbe intoxicating cup, but in a thousand other ways. By neglecting the Sabbath, the sanctuary, the Bible ; by pro fan eness, or lewdness, or falsehood ; by cast ing away that tract, or disregarding that friendly expostulation ; by forgetting a fath er's counsels or a mothers prayers ; by go ing within the limits of temptation ; in a word, by trifling with conscience, or truth, or God's spirit in any form ; by any or all these things, you may harden your heart, and seal yourself over to death. Something to harden the heart ! Tremble at the thought of any thing that shall do so fearful a work, and rather seek for that which may soften, and subdue, and melt your heart in penitence at the cross and prepare it for duty and for heaven. AlittTe boy -after saying nightlfprtyeTS which had been taught him, was quite tenancious of what be called praying hia own way. He had a largo number of brothers and sisters, whose needs and pe culiarities he sometimes made the subject of his petition?. Oa oue occasion, at com mencing this exercise, he was overcome with sleep. Wrestling with his stupor, he said : "Ob, Lord, bless Elizibeth, and make her better than she i.M His head fell back on his pillow, but SOOn rousing, he murmured drnwtilv ' ' ir lit I J " Bless Henry too." Jt was in vain j the tongue refused its office so he added, indistinctly : M Oh Lord, I can't ; there are too many of 'era," and ho sank into the deep slum ber of childhood. At another iiui while conducting this exercise in a somewhat more wakeful mans ner, he said : " Lord please to bless Father and give him anew heart. Be so kind as to bless Mary, my little sister, and give her a new heart. Oh, Lord, bless mother but you need not give her a new heart, for she could not have any better one than she's got ; and I don'tsee how she'd go to work to be any better, woman tnau she is now." The Idle Boy Becomes a Man. Yes, I am a man ; and woe ia me for having been such a little fool when I was a boy ! I ha'ed my book, and took more pains to forget my lessons than ever I did to learn them. What a dunce I was, even over my spelling I Always at the bottom of my class and imy book thumbed and dog-eared, and cried over the very em blem of du ncehood. " Do, Charles, learn your lessons." said my father, or you will be fit for nothing when a man." " Do, deat Charles, give your mind to books or I shall be ashamed of owning you for mv boy," said my poor mother. But no ; I niuut give my mind to whippiog the tops and eating cakes, and a floe scholar they made me ! Now, there was Fred Jones, ho liked play well enough, but he liked reading better, and ha learned more out of school boars than I did in them.

The important bu siness peudiug could u t be done with prop er deliberation, so as to adjourn sine die, prior to t'uis date acd in view of the con dition of Htiiir in the pastern part of the State, it couid not be expected that mem bers from E tsterti counties could remain here longer at the present sitting. The two uiost prominent matters of un- fiuished business are the Revenue bill, and the bill to raise 10,000 troops as a State reserve The former has not been acted on in the Commons, and the latter is pend iug in the Senate. A great many amendments will be pro posed to the lleveuue bill, and, considered leisurely, will consume much time. The country wonders at the delay in raising trcopsfor State defence. All feel doeply for oi.r people overrun byabeartless enemy. But the question is whether we shall commit our defence to the Confeder acy, or raise State Troops in aid of that government ;' and if State troops are to be raised, out ot what part of onr people shall thev bj raised ? A larsre maioritv of the Assemblv seems tl favor the raisinc of a State reserve. Some on the ground that the Confederate Gov't has neglected the State; others on the ground that the Confederacy cannot look after all the points ou so great a theatre of warfare, and that this State ought to have a reserve as well as the ther States of tbe Confeder acy. The difficulty ?hich has caused the delay is this : Shall tbe reserve be raised out of those liable to conscription ? or out of those exempt from conscription ? Some insist that it we accept volunteers from those liable to conscription, we thereby nullify the conscription act, and place our selves in antagonism Tith the Confederate Government ; and to avoid this, they pro pose to raise the State troops out of the Justices of the Peace, militia officers, those who have hired substitutes, and other ex empts, yielding those lia&le to conscription to the Confederate government. Others insist that if the exempts and the conscripts both go into the army, that suffering and starvation must ensuerboth at home and in the army ; that it is unjust to the Con federate government to presume that N. C. will not be allowed to have a State re serve, made up by Tohoteering from those liable to conscription; wLen all, or nearly all, the other Southern States have such a reserve ; that there ci'u be no antagjnisra," unless the President shoAld denv in thia Ifetate what has been conceded U the other w iueuiv .WMV9-Tiews arenp.nritTP't to much.' cou&ideration, insist that no at tempt should be made lo raise a State re serve; that we have made common cause, and should rely solely on the common ar my ; that it is doubtful whether the Con federate Gov't would take into its nav the reserve, raised and oSicered as we propose, auu even n accepted, we should be at the expense of organizing arming and equip ping them, which would involve us in an intolerable -State debl In the old army of the U. S.. when efery thing could be bonght at oae-third of present prices, our army cost $1000 per! man per year, and that 10,000 men, including arms, clothing, ammunition, subsistence, pay, fec, wonld cost at least $25,O0O,00j) per year now. Others maintain that the addition of more men to our presentjenormous army would not increase its efficiency ; and'that it is unwise to press conscription further at this time or tq attempt in any way to in crease oi:r military force. The only feaurc of the Revenue bill which has given rise to much rebate is that relating to the value of slaves. The bill, as reported by the Committee on Fi uance, fixed the average value of all slaves, . exceptf mechanics, at $350t.nd the aver age value of mechanics at $700. " The Sen ate amended the bill, by ohassifying and' valuing them as follows : all under 5 years old $100, all from 5 to 10 years eld $200, all from 20 to 30 $500, from 40 to 0 $200, all over 60 $25. This classification will brinj the average to about $344. Power is given Cocky Courts to exempt such as they deem of no value. Lnd is to be listed accordiBg to the last assessment. Tbe amendment of the Constitution made by the late Convention provides that land and slaves shall be taxed according to their value, and the tax on slaves shall be as much, but not more than, that on land, according to their respective values; but the tax on Slaves may be laid according to their general average value in the State, or on their value in classes in respect to age, sex, and other disdinctive properties, in the discretion of the Gen. Assemblv, ana me value De assessed ia such modea as may be prescribed by law. As this new feature of the Constitution is receiving the interpretation that while land is valnr.rl imm.a... .1 ; slaves may be valued by the General As- ' mhlir u .v i -i . . terested individuals sworn for the purpose ! When the value of slaves i fixed bv m mere i legislative declaration, is this a compliance with the constitutional prj vision, that "the value b& assessed in such modes as may bo prescribed by law ?" Is there no danger when war shall cease, that this mode vl valuation by the' General Assembly may give rise to another unrort.inate party con test in relation to the valuation of slaves ? If it bhall be thought they are not taxed as much as land according to value, may it not lead to the election of another clas ot members who may value them too high ? I think the value should be ascertained by assessors, sworn for the purpose ; and, to prevent inequality in valuation between different parts of tbe State, that the law should require each clerk of the County Court, on an appointed day after the re turn of the assessment of negroes, to re port the average valuation of the negroes of his county to the Treasurer ; and require the Treasurer to ascertain, and publish the average throughout the St!te; and then make it the duty of the clerk of each Coun ty Court to reform the assessment by in creasing or diminishing the value assessed, so as to bring it to the general average. If this or some Jike plan of valuation be adopted, we shall Jiaar no more of the negro question in N. C. If the plan of Legisla tive valuations prevail, another field will be opened for dangerous and mischievouj deuaagogueism. This assessment of negroes should be made as often, and at the same time, as land is assessed, with. some cheap and con venient provision for valuing those born or otherwise acquired by the owner, between the periods of assessment; and for striking off the list those'dying or changing hand6. W. Reductionof PKiCES.The Richmond En quirer publishes an article showing the great necessity for a reduction of prices for food, clothing, &c. In conclfision, it says : " The government must arrest, all around, these enormous extortioners, if possible. We do not think it would be so difficult as some imagine. We belive all parties to it are ashamed of it Thev plead each other as ex- 1 cuses. Bring all down together, and for very oiAuuif uuo ui cue m uuc vHJiupiain. The Government must at least take care of itself.. It cannot pay the. prices demanded for army subsistence of all sorts, without overwhelming us with debt It must pay no more. And to avoid ground of complaint, it should make those prices as uniform as the relative abundance of the different localities will allow. ' The safety and w el fare of all depend upon hfPpii;Yuch a rue t0 1W- t will cause the crew are gambling for the cargo. Force every man to do his duty, and require every one to desist from the pursuit of im moral and demoralizing gains, and all will Wi well." Tni 24TnN. C. Troops at FkEpswcKs-BORO.--We are permitted to make the. fol lowing extract from a letter from a Cumber land officer in this regiment : " It was a terrible battle, and our regi ment was in front all the time. We were lying in an old ditch on the outer ede of the Town. The right of our regiment was be hind the last houses of the street. On each side of this street was an open field, up to the main body of the town, a distance of about 800 or 1000 yards. The enemy charg through the fields and down the street to within 40 yards-of our lines the prettiest mie you ever saw ; every man had the step exactly, and as fast as we would cut them uowa tney wouia close up as if nothing had happened. I never saw any thing like'he dead in all my life. I believe I could have walked 200 or 300 yards on dead bodies without touching the ground. The enemy came uj in column of brigade, and as fast as we would cut up and run off one another would take its place. I think we killed more color bearers that day than we had men fight ing ; for as fast as they would pick up the colors we would cut them down, and they never allowed them to hit the ground scarce ly before they would catch them up. They fought as bravely as men ever did." . FOR THB SPIRIT OT Tna AOS. Notice to Extortioners. Mr. Gorman : While recruiting for the 66th regiment, in the lower part of Hertford county, I spent a night under the hospitable roof of a venorable old man, a Deacon in the Baptist Church at Ahoskie. This excellent man has been selling first rate bacon to his neighbors and the famil ies of soldiers at 15 cents per pound, while others wre selling at 60 and 60. In vain did greedy speculators beset the good man to buy all his bacon, at an increased price. Hia name is John S. Godwin. Let extor tioners remember it. V. , FOB THK SPIRIT OP THS ASS.
