Mr. Editor, to which the attention of Christians, and chris tian churches, cannot be too frequently di -rected. If I mistake not, such is the nature of the one which stands at the head of this - article. On this, they need " line upon line, and precept upon precept." The remarks I nropose to make will be very plain, and intended to expose some of the evils connected with ii. 1. It is an evil but pooripi to pay the preacher. I have nothing to say to those churches that compensate, in no way, the man of God for his labors of love. I leave them until the day of final reckoning, when they must answer for glaring neglect of duty. But for a church to admit their duty in this particular, and to dole out with a sparing, if not with a grudging hand, scarcely enough to buy their ministers corn, is no small evil. And this too is done by churches that are able to pay thrice as much as they now do to the support of the minis try. Other labours are not put off with half pay. But the minister's services are so much less important than any one else. that he must not grumble if he gets but half a loaf. I repeat it, this is an evil un der the sun. Were this ah occasional thing, it might be better tolerated. But it is too general-the instances of those who are well supported by their churches, forming only exceptiobs. In this the value which is set upon the gospel by those who profess to value it.above every thing? Don't these people love money more than the gospel? Is charity outraged to answer YES ? 2. Another evil is. to promise a minister a certain amount, and pay him only a part of it. This, too, is not so rare a case. If it were, it would be better both for church and preacher-the former would not be guilty of breaking a promise; the latter would not be disappointed in meeting his reasonable expectations, and he would be spared the pain 'f thinking at least, that his people are not to be relied on. But it is a very common case, that churches pro mise one thing, and come shortof it. Who will gain-say this? I venture the assertion, that nine-tenths of our preachers do not get, any two years in succession, all that their churiches promise to pay. There is many a subscription unpaid. Now, this is a sore evil. Ministers can't live on unpaid subscriptions. (Pity they could't.)' Be sides this, promises are serious things; and they should no more be violated when made by churches, than when made by in dividuals. An individual making a 'pro mise to pay money, is held accountable to his church if he fails, wilfully to comply. And yet, the church may fail to fulfil a similar promise made to its minister, and nothing must be said about it ! It is an evil not to be winked at, because it is commit ted in high places. Nor will it do for such ciommunion, hfave not' palt ubscription. The minister always con tracts with the church, and not with indi viduals, whether in the church, or out of t, so that, in all justice, the church is bound ror all deficiettcies. And any church put ing off its minister with such a plea, de erves to be left unsupplied. 3. Another evil is, that what a minister receives in the way of compensation is re eited in such a manner, as is little calculat d to benefit him. It is received by piece meals. a little to-day, and a little to-mor row. In many instances, the whole amount so comparatively little, but the manner in which it is received, renders it still less in value. Why should not ministers be paid quarterly, or semi-annually, as well as lit rary and theological professgs, &c.? At any rate, where this cannot be done, would it not be more to the credit of the church to pay him in full at the eno of the year ? This would not only look more business like, but it would enable him to lay out his pay, however small, to better a-lvantage. Won't churches correct this evil ? If they are determined not to raise the wages of their ministers, won't they try and pay them all at once ! 4. The practice of collecting, and paying he minister on Sunday, is another evil. But fewv chturches but what do this. To ards the end, or at the beginning of the year, you will see the deacon, or some otne else, with subscription in hand, butsily col lecing the amnount su'oscribed; and the frst thing, after leaving the pulpit, the preacher is met by thtis collection with a roll of money,'(sometimes very small,) which is counted out with great care, be fore " many wittnesses." Now, all this sort of busitness, on the Lord's day, has to say the least. the appearance of evil. some other day, should be taken to attend to this butsi ness, o- re this done, more, in my opinion, would be collected thtan now is. Th~le church, where the deacons are negligent, should appoint sonme otte to attend to it. And now, Mr. Editor, I have said all that I intend to say, at present, on this subject. You may hear from me again on it,, provi ded, (I like provisions) you think this arti cle will do any goodl. Respectfully, OLDos. From the Ladies Companion. TIlE WAR-WVOMAN'S CREEK. In Georgia and North Carolina, there is hardly a river, creek, or stream, that has nut connected with it somne old Indian tra diton. The title of the present sketch is taken fromi one of these-I believe otno of the principal tributaries of th6 Natahtalee river~, in the Cherokee nation, North Car olina. The story, as told by the few In dians remaining since the removal in the fall of 1838, runs thus: Many years ago, in the first settlement of the country, a wandlering party of their tribe attacked the house of a squatter some where upon their borders, during his ab sence, and massacred all his children, and left his wife covered wvith t he tmangled bo dies ,of her butchered offspring, scalped like them, and apparently dead. Sho was nut, however, wounded so badly as they had supposed; and no sooner did she hear the sondn of their retreating footst eps, th an disengagitig herself from the heap of slain, haggard, pale, and drenched with her own and the blood of her children, she peered steadily from the door, and finding her ene mies no longer in sight, hastily extinguish ed the fire, which, before leaving, they had applied to the logs of which it wab com posed. Wiping from her eyes the ivarm blood which was still reeking from her scalpless head, she directed her agonized gaze to the bleeding and disfigured forms of those who, scarce an hour before, had been playing at the door, -and gladdening her maternal heart with their merry laugh ter; and as she felt, in the full sense of desolation, the last ray of hope die within her bosom, there stole over her ghastly face an expression as savage as was ever worn by the ruthless slayers of her inno cent babes. Her eye gleamed with the wild fury of the tigress robbed of its young, as closing her cabin carefully behind her, with a countenance animated by some desperate purpose, she siarted off in the sane path by which the mudrderers had de parted. Heedless of her wounds and wasting blood, and lost to all sense of hun ger and fatigue in the one absorbing and fell-purpose which actuated her, she paus ed not upon the trail of her foes, until at night, she came up with them encamped at the side of the creek, which is indebted to her for its present name. Emerging frotn the gloom of the sur rounding darkness, on her hands and knees, ;he crept noiselessly towards the fire, the blaze of which, as it flickered upwards. iscovered to her the prostrate forms of .he Indians, five in number, who, over iome by an unusually fatiguing day's tra rel, were wrapped in deep sleep, with their inly weapons, their tomahawks, in their 3elts. Her own stealthily advancing figure, is the uncertain light of - e burning pine ell upon it with more or less distinctness iow exposing its lineaments clotted with >lood, and distorte'' y an expression which ier wrongs, and - sight of the desolators if her hearth-stone, exaggerated to a de ;ree almost fiendish; and now shading all, ;ave two -gleaming spectral eyes-was iven moro striking than the swarthy faces vhich she glared upon. Assuring herself hat they were fast asleep, she gently re noved their tomahawks, and dropped all ut one into the stream. With this re naining weapon in her hand, and cool re olution in her heart, shei bent over the earest enemy, and liftid thb instrumrit, low, buried it in the temple of its owier. rhe savage moved no more than partly to urn upon his side, gasped a little,. quiver d a minute like an aspen, and sunk back o his forner position, quite dead. Smiling hastly in hie rigid face, the desperate wo nan left him, and noiselessly as before. lespatched all of the slcepers, but one. to hat long rest from which only the last rump can awaken them. The last devot d victim, however, was aroused to a con ciousness of his situation by the death truggles of his companions. He sprang o his feet, and felt fur his weapon. It vas not there; and one glance explaining very thing, he evadted the blow aimed at im by the brave and revetigeful mother, eized from the fire a burning brand, and vith it succeeded partially in warding off he furious attack which followed. In a ittle time they fell struggling together, the ndian desperately wounded, and the"un rtunato woman faint with loss of blood md her extraordinary erertions. Both vere too weak tv harm each other now, md the wounded savage only availed him If of his remaining stren.gth to crawl way.-In this piteous. plight, the poor votnan remained until near noon on the llowing da~y, when she was accidentatlly liscovered by a straggling party of whbites, o whom she told her story, and then died. fter buryitig hier on thme spot, they made omc exertion to overtake the fugitivo In lian, but unsuccessfully.

He tho marries during this year will run a great risk-that is, if he duos it in a hurry. lie who steals a match, will make tat tiers gossip, and get himself into a scrape. He who is pennyless this year will not grieve much at the fall of stocks. He that grows without growing wiser, will be a long time coming to the years ol discretion. He who wants to borrow money, will know the value of it. He who laughs at his own dull jokes, and hunts for a cat with three tails, or be comes an applicant for ollice, will rival honest Dogberry, and be content to "write himself an ass. There will be more books published'this year than will find purchasermnore rhymes written than will find readers, and more bills made out than will find payers.

She remar ked that she had. none, and inquired what he iwanted with them. " To buy a dose of caster oil, marm," was the reply, " for I feel dreadful sick." The lady had no cents, but she had plen ty of oil, and she prepared him a stiff dose. He tried bard to get excused from taking it, but she was firm: lie was a sick man, and it must go down. The loafer found he was caught in his own trap; and where lie meant to have a glass of liquor, he got a dose of physic ; but, making a virtue of necessity, and with sundry wry faces, he gulped it down and cleared.
