POx EMSoP PIEROE.
Mr. Editor:-An incipient evil of no small S
magnitude is creeping into the Methodist Church, bi
and by plausible and even pious pretexts, is seek- R
ing to modify and change a great and vital system. pr
* * * * * * ce
In my wanderings, I see and hear many things C
to deplore, And propose, if other labors will th
allow, an occasional article for your paper on m
existing evils and the true remedy. To begin pr
with one as yet incipient in the Southerh Con- na
ferences, but which, like all other evils uneheek
ed, is destined to grow, and spread, and ruin St
our city churches, and by-and-by, to set up it- th
self in wealthy neighborhoods, even in the coun- de
try-I mean pewed churches. pe
I object, first, as a Methodist. It is a graft es
from another tree-more distinguished for bar- pe
renness than fruit. The graft always bears sh
after is own kind and not after the stock. Se- al
condly, because it separates the church into clas-. he
ses-creates eastes, odious to the genius of the sh
country and the spirit of Christianity Thirdly, fit
because being an exception to our common plan, an
the intrusion of astrange and foreign element, it in
produces alienation, strife, discord among the ci
I object as a Preacher, because it diminishes ist
my congregation-restricts me to " a select few," u
when my buisness is with the crowd-the people. in
It curtailes-defeats the ministry to a great ex- th
tent in the work of saving souls. For proof,
read the history of christian denominations in or
the United States.-Secondly, because it brings th
the influence of wicked men into the manage- sh
meat of what ought to be a spiritual organiza- m
tion. The pew-holder claims the right, if not hc
of dietating.at least of interferring and advising, wi
and the apprehension of losing his money, gives ta
him weight-power, where lie ought to have
I object as a Christian: Because the system ex- co
alts my rich brother and mortifies my poor one. da
Seats for the rich and seats for the poor in the
house of God! The one bought with money- de
the cther alldWed as a favor. "For if there es
come into your assomply a man with a gold ring ti<
in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor bc
man in vile raiment, and you have respect to him en
that wearetii the gay clothing, and say unto him
sit thou here, in a good place, and say unto the
poor man, stand thou here, or sit here under my
and become judges of evil thoughts ? Hearken, st
- my beloved brethren. Hath not God chosen the s
poor of this world-rich in faith and heirs of the fo
kingdom which he has promised to them that W
love him? But ye have despised- poor."p
1 believe the whole policy of pewing churches di
is wrong-unscriptural. I do not mean to say am
that the intention of those who favor the plan f
is wicked. By no means. But I do believe
thait they are In Judgment, under the influence al
of views and feeling, undetected by themselves, o
which,-if rigidly analyzed, would be found far "I
puore carnal than pious. Very religious reasons SC
are urged sometimes, but these concern all con-p
ditions of men, and are as likely to be felt by a
one oauss as another.- But do the poor, the hun-b
ble, the simple-hearted, over projeet those th
schemes ? Is not the aristocracy of money at T
the bottom of it ? I knew a wicked man otnco -
to urge his friend to help him build a pewed ti
church, sayir~g, " Let us go to heaven like gen- at
tlemnen." Is not this the spirit of such enter- O
"May house," says God, "shall be called a
house of prayer for all people," but these pew tc
people build houses only for those who are able C
to pay for seats, and the very few who will do Si
them the homnge of acknowledging their own C.
inferiority, " children of wrath even as others," b
'bought with the same precious blood-nil un- th
worthy, needing pardon-let us sit, kneel, pray, c.
bing, worship together, without distinction.
Query : What righ t has anybody to epeculats m
upon the house of God ? Ia it to raisc money
with more ease ? Is it to briog one-some
great one, over to our aide ! Is it to shield
ourselves from the leprous touch of the cammon da
herd!i No matter why-when the house is in
parcelled out-sold in fractious-men and wo- sa
men invested with legal exclusive rights-how se
much of the building belongs to God ? Very N
much of itis private property. Call me fogy- tr
fool-I think the new sygtem sery little short th
of sacrilege. c
But it is said to be a good plan to raise money le
for the support of the Gospel. True, but then se
there is no principle-nc Gospel benevolence in sc
.the plan.-These men do not give money to sup- in
port the church, they pay for their orwn accommo- w
dat ion. It is a bargain-a trade-not a christian at
gift-a pious contribution. n
t~ is possible that some persons may be bi
bfo ght to attend upon the Methodist ministry te
under this arrangement, whose pride of prejudice ui
might else keep them away. To secure them di
in this way-to drive off their betters-a bad ex- ar
phange. Diminished usefulness is a terrible tL
price to pay for increased respectability. After
all let it be remembered that men may be ?OOnl to sc
Christ-they cannot be bought. YWhether the w
church concludes to sell her siinple christain econ
omy for the sake of any man's favor-the pat- bi
ronage of any class .she ought to ask more than tr
the mere premium, which they are willing to ai
- give for their selfish indulgence. However high is
the rate-the trade is always a bad one. bi
1 might multiply objections and exceptions; je
but my only object is to nip the nascent noxious a
bud, which I have seen here and there in the Ii]
garden of Methodism. To our people, it ought
to be an invincible argument against the pew yi
sstem, that it arrests and neutralizes material- bl
ly the aggressive power of the Gospel. This is ni
demonstrated in the fact, that in those churches ja
where it is the common plan, whenever anything
is to be done-a revival to be begun or sustain- w
ad, the kingdom of heaven to be taken and the re
,people allowed to press into it-then the sys.

tion, ".cone Jet us go to the ho use of God to.

the motions of a battle with sin and the devil,
then the old restrictise, exclusive system comes
in agren and truly nothing Is done. All is stag
The great ptea-I had almost forgotten. It 6
is that parents may have their children under re
their own eye. This is more -plausible than
solId-more specious than pious. Let parents t
obey the Bible, teach their children the ,fear of s
God, and, by instruction, discipline and exa~mple,
bring them uip to obedience, reverence and dut~y.
A child, well taught, well governed at home,
*will behave as well a hundred miles from the
ays of its parents, a it will within two feet ofa
theirsperson. The good behavior, that does not'
spring fsom~ principle, wisely implanted and
prayerfully nourished, is wuere eye service. It is t
no proof 'of sirtne, nor security of character. g
Rather the reverse. TIhose parents who govern
-their children by the eyo and the red-the mere
fear- of Punishmaent.-:may make-will make le
hypocrites, but never can make boyt and girls le

CHURCH PROPERTY CONFISCATED BY THE

RELIGIoUs FEUD IN CANADA.-Considerable
citement was created in Toronto on Monday,
a '7th cIt., by an announcement that a Roman
itholic procession ;would pass through the

the first time in that city. The Orangemen
re highly indignant and were determined to
event it. They placarded the town with ad

The Catholic Bishop, Charfonnel, became
irmed, and announced in the church that the
iginal plan of the 'procession would be given
,and that only the children attending the
hool of the Christian Brothers would walk in
ocession.-This did not satisfy the Orangemen,

SINTERESTING LETTER, FRD0I AN OCCASIONA
PaARs, Feb. 1850.
[.Well, Inattended the great annual ball of the Drm
matie A rtists at the Opera Comique on Saturrk
night. 1 was told its chief merit would be its r<
rspectaility. Now " the respectable'' is an inven
tion of medern times, just like the "To Prepon
and the " To Kalon" were Greek inventions.

you see a thing that is quiet,sobertand stupid, witl
ut being amusing, you may be sure " the respet
table" rules there. But this ball-it was reapect
able-to me was more'than boring ; it was disgust

whom, at the theatres, I had over and over agai
lauged, wept, loved, quarreled,fought, humnbugge
and committed suicide-all, all so respectable.

on their faces the indubitable marks of those morn

room I have seen mangled bodies. There I looke<
upon them with a kind of pleasure, or -at least ni
interest which saw nothing loathsome. But whe:
at night in my bed, any dreams have created these
soenes around me, I have started up in an agon:
o f disgust and fear.
IThe Masque Ball and this one have probably the
same nmorals. At one place I ajimire the serpen
that seems to be luxuriating in its sinuous folds
with a sort of poisoned ,lirium; at the other thi

was not 'respectable,' and therefore interesting,
was a little stout man with a profusion of diamonds,
black moustache and head of thick, long, curly,
black hair. This was none other than the nephew
of William IV. of England-Charles, exiled Duke
of Brunswick. A man whose immense fortune is
only equalled by his stupidity. His hair is made of
black silk and so notorious is his folly that when
Louis Napoleon had collected twenty-five skew
-ball horses for his coronation, and, that being put
off, wished to get rid of them, he sold them to the
Duke, who is now constantly mistaken for a circus
manager as he is seen dashing about with his skew
Yesterday I went to the old Palais de Margarin
to attend the annual session of the Academy of
Sciences. As I passed through the court I encoun
tered any number of liveried servants and carriages
with coronets and the imperial arms on the panel.
After taking my seat the first thing that struck me
was the presence of a dozen or more soldiers sta
tioned about the room, among an audience, every
other man of whom was decorated with the cross
or the ribbon of the legion of honor. Half an hour
after an oflicer marched these myrmidons of the
law out, and the illustrious members of the Aca
demy, of the Institute, forty in number entered.
There was scarcely a middle aged man among them.
All were old and decrepid, just tottering on the
verge of the next world. To-day they had met,
as was their yearly custom, to make their yearly
report of the year that was passed: first, to bestow
the prizes on the young men who had in the inter
val distinguished themselves by works of merit, and
secondly, to pronounce culogies on their companions,
who, having labored earnestly here in the cause of
truth with them, had, since their last annual meet
ieg gone before them to enter in the next world
upon a new field of labor. Regnault, the celebrated
chemist, presided, and Elie de Beaumont, the still
more celebrated geologist, read out the prizes, which
ranged from 2,000 fra. to 500 frs. in value; and to
the number of more than thirty. M. Flourens then
decended and taking his seat in front of the au
dience, pronounced, in a low voice, but distinct and
with good emphasis, a eulogy upon the great Buch.
It was short, not more than three quarters of an
hour long, and, what surprised me most, it did -not
affect the pathetic in a single instance. But when
the orator made an effort, it was to excite the risi
bility of his audience. This he succeeded in doing
several times-and with what harm ? " Quid vetat
ridentem dicere verum." Such are the French.
If you want them to listen to you you must make them
laugh. Contrary to the custom of all other people,
they commence their theatrical performances with
a farce and end with a tragedy. H.

THE XAY CONCERT.
The Concert given by the pupils of Mrs. C. A.
RAYMOND, on the evening of the first of May, was
one of the best entertainments of the kind I have ever
I witnessed in this part of the country.
The Academy was beautifully decorated with the
gayest flowers, and festoons, and with many varieties
of the birds and fowls of the air intermingled with,
and perched upon, the wreathes of the " rose and
eglantine," until the whole became a fairy scene, and
one seemed transported into the mystic gardens of the
East. A vast concourse of the fashion, beauty, and
chivalry of the District had already assembled at an
early hour, when
" Music arose with its voluptuous swell,
- Soft eyes look'd love to eyes wh~ichs spake again,
. And all went merry as a marriage-bell."
The young ladies played on the piano, and .snng
tadmirably, exhibiting the most satisfactory proficien
cy in their studies, and bringing down the frequent
applause of the house with perfectahowers of bouquets.
~They were not only pretty themselves, but they were
elegantly attired--their conduct was becoming, and
" Their modest demeanor was thte jewel of all."
Such an exhibitnon crowned by the dignified bear
ing of the matron of the school cannot fail to concili
ate upposition, and to elicit favor.
n ~ For thte Advertiser.
. Mu.,,EDIPOI. M. TAwounois the most singular in
0stance of rane roes old age, it has been our misfor
tune tocncounter in an eventful and checkered life.
0IIe is emiphatically the high Priest of envy, malice,
and all uncharitableness, and seems to have devoted
the many years, he boasts an allwise Providence has
spared htim; to the successful culture of "deep,
ttreacherous, and hollow guile."
cIn weaving his tangled wvebs, vindictive feelings
have ovcrwroughtt a feverish brain. The world
miay now solely judge of his motives for writing
such infasmous panegyrics on a profession that had
reduced lying atnd immorality to a perfect science;
and who derive a regular and splendid subsistence
rby the indiscriminaite dcfence of right and wrong.
Knowing the purity of Lawyers, and the striking
contrast, they ever present to the publie gaze, when
comspared~ to honest integrity and sterling worth, we
called on this lion hearted veteran, for a simple can
did narrative-a published balance sheet, setting
forth to us Farmers, the short comings and evil do
ings of those he ardently desired to rescue from the
foul load of obloqi-y which a majority of the chris
tian world have deservedly heaped on the shoulders.
yIn reply, we are called " a senseless parrot,"~ an
apish clown, and basely suspected of being not thte
author of "' MANY FARMtERS," but a moat active au
tomaton, in the detestable clutches of a Lawyer.
tThis last is,h unkindest cut of all, and emanates
from a heat-oppressed intellect, U that has partaken
of the insane root, that takes the re~ason prisoner,"
verily, M. TAAFOUaD is a bird of rare and brilliant
plumage ; history gives no account of many such,
who were not att some period of their lives under
the beneficial treatment of a Lunatic assylum. If he
is not a practising attorney and thte fond father of more
lawsuits, thain " brave boys" we are willing to confess
ourselves most egregiously deceived ;-at all events
our hontest convictions force us to thtink so .and we
will ride many miles to see thte man, who can lay
his hand on his heart, and truthfully assert his love
for the lawyer, because he esteems him the possesor
of more of that feeling which raises mortals to the
skies thtan his fellows.
Hie is at perfect liberty, to make what-ever coin
parison he thinks proper ; his suppositions will con
tinue as distant from fact as his tinsel discourses in
bealf of Iawtyers.
SSophistry may evade, impudence deny, and false
hood assert, but thmeir positioun in society-the esti
mation in whlich they are hmeld by the honest yeo
man,; stands as a precedent, conspicuous and unre
moved to direct us. Our language has no term of
reproach, the mind no idea of detestation, which
has not'hapily been applied to them and exhausted.
Emple justice has been done by abler pens than
ours, to the merits of the profession. Why does M.
TaLrOURD not abide the universal decision ? H~e nev
er dared with all his cunning and hypocrisy, to de
ny the odious distinctioun, and infamous popularity,
its votaries have attained for themselves. What
.cankered vanity he displays in eensuring an entire
world for exercising its just prejudices.
The obstinate, ungovernable self sufficieney, in all
ii productions, plainly demonstrates to our senses,
the utter folly of any moan chaning his opinions by
fr argument. Moreover, we are really farmers ;
men who live by the sweat of an industrious brow,
and earn bread by gathering the fruits of the soil.
If we would have our business thrive at this
swet season, we must "speed the plough"~ and
leye others who have more taste for windy
discussions to embroil themselves with this gen
We can never shun the "Seven Capital .sina"
with more horror, than we would a newspaper con
Itroveray with a masked lawyer; the only match for
such a character is to be found ir " realms where
the wicked case from troubling and the weary are
at rest." An avenging God, may alone inflict
monster, rendering earth hideous.
M TALFOURD is not only nice, but' perfectly sore
in every thing that touches his honour. He is de
termined to retrieve the wretched remains of the
ruined reputation which his friends enj'sy in Edge
field District and expresses a readiness to draw
" A duellists bead" on some member of the Bar
Now if any person is to be a target for this gunpow
ber genius, iu all candor we must needs think, the
part of danger ours, and whila we repeat the phi
losophic prayer of SIR JoiN FALsTAFF " God keel
lead out of-me! I need no more weight than mint
own bowels," yet we can never obtain our consent
to east the " sacred shield of Cowardice around us.
If .1. TALURD really has no quarrel with us, the
thunderbolts which are borne by his gallant boys
will never be hurled against our tannned and weath
er beaten fronts; if he has, let him sound his clari,
on notes, calling us to the field, and we will not be

COLUMBIA MAY 3.
A sense of duty to myself demands that]
make a brief explanation of an article which ap.
peared in the Carolinian of the 1st instant, un
der the signature of "1 Carolina." If I should
have the misfortune to write any thing, which
by possibility could be interpreted into an attack
upon our peculiar institutions, I should feel it
my duty promptly to make the correction ; and
if, in the present instance, I have, in a momen
of g.enerou:> feeling, s :id any thing which can'b
construed into an attack upo~n Southern s!avery
I hereby disclaim, without qunlification, all suel
design, and utterly repudiate it. That the Soutl

we consider the unholy crusade against her, ant
the peculiar perils by which she is surrounded
I participate fully in this feeling, and am not re
lutatnt to take m; humble position as one of hel
defenders, and to stake my all on the issue.
When I say that I do not feel " myself callet
upon to prove my devotion to the South by
wolesale defence of the principle of slavery it
he abstract," I mean simply that I atm not at
advocate of the institution as it existed in an
cient Rome and other countries, with the abuses
whieb accompanied it. This is not Southert
slavery-it is regulated by law, the principle o
humanity is infused into it, it is the slavery og
It cotmes recommended by the Divine sanction
and it is only, I conceive, when it rests upot
such a foundatiomn, and has the enlightening in
fluences of Christianity shed upon it, that tt eat
exist as an authorative institution. This is the
peculiar type at the South, and distinguishesi
fronm Roman slavery, and that of other countrice
in motdern timnes, where it now prevails. Apar
from this, however, it can vindiente itself. The
region where it exists is fully equal to any othe

and feel for her a devotion which knows no lim.

where I first opened my eyes, and where my ash
