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 ;

And treads the mighty down." EKUD.

'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. Fred
Jones is now, like mys?lf, a man, but a
verv different kind of a man H"

The Legislature Unfinished Business.
The Geueral Assembly has taken a re
cess till the I'Jih Jan'y. 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."

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.
