CHURCH AND STATE.
VIEWS OP REV. DR. JETER,
lo response to a request to furnish the Rich
mond Dispatch with his views of those portions
of tbe President's message which refer to the
taxation of church property and to public edu
cation, Rev. Dr. J. B. Jeter, senior editor of
the Religious Herald, aud one of the most dis
tinguished Baptist clergymen of the South, on
Saturday said:
' I have been able to bestow but little con
sideration on the part* to which you refer. 1
will give you my hastily-formed views of them
without attempting to support them by argu
ments.
"First, then, in regard to public education
I must say I can see no good reason why the
Federal Government should intermeddle with
it. To say nothing of the difficulty of compell
ing poor States, with a scattered population,
to furnish adequate means for the education of
ail the children within their limits, it seems
eminently proper, if there are State Govern
ments, that they should have the entire con
trol ol popular edacation within I heir respec
tive territories. They may be supposed to be
best acquainted with their resouic-s and the
necessities, tastes, and wishes of their constit
uents.
"To compulsory education, by Federal or
State Government, I am earnestly opposed.
The right to teach involves the right to decidc
what shall be taught. If a Government has a
right to proscribe "all religions, atheistic (if
there be any such) and pagan/' in its public
schools, then it has an equal right to require
that Christianity or Mohammedanism shall be
taught. The Constitution doee not create
rights, but merely defines and limits such
as are admitted to exist. It changes, as
the history of our country has shown, with
the views, interests, and caprices of the
people. The principle involved in compul
sory education by the State lies at the founda
tion of all despotism and tyranny : it is that
the people are not to be trusted to educate
themselves and their children ; but must, for
their own good, be taken under Government
tutelage. With many doubts as to its ultimate
advuntnges 1 favor a system of public educa
tion by State authority, of which parents and
guardians may avail themselves in the instruc
tion of their children so far as their interests,
tastes, and circumstances may permit ; but I
would greatly prefer the abolitioo of the sys
tem to compulsory eduoation.
"With the views of the message in regard
to church property in the maio I agree, but do
not clearly perceive why they should have
been presented by the President. The General
Government derives uo portioo of its revenues
irom direct taxation on property. It will be
time euough to discuss the propriety of taxing
church property by the Federal authority
when it is proposed to tax other property. At
present tbe question is theoretical, not prac
tical.
"As, however, the Governor of this State bas
suggested the desirableness of taxing church
property for the support of the Government, I
will offer a few remarks on the subject: 1 am
an advocate of a clear separation of Church
and State. By how muco the State remits of
taxes on church property by so much it im
poses burdens on other interests for the sup
port of religion. The right to impose taxes
arises from the necessity of revenues to enable
Governments to accomplish their legitimate
purposes; and they should be laid equally on
all property and all interests sharing in gov
ernmental protection uuless there be clear
reasons, affecting the publio good, to depart
f rom that rule. Church property is protected
by Government, and should bear its share of
the burden of supporting it."
j Communicated.
Who can help a feeling of pity, of sorrow,
for that class of men io our community now
becoming so large?the "old bachelors?"
Who can help sympathisiog with thorn for
their loneliness of heart and home? "Old
fellows" whose parents are gone, no ties bind
ing them to the earth, but little hope of
heaven ; to whom all seems dark and dreary ;
they simply exist, they vegetate. Living
neither in the memories of the past nor tor the
hopes? of the future?sad, sad life ! Calliog on
one of them a few days since, living in a grand
old home, I was struck with the utter desola
tion of all around. LookiDg into room after
room, once furnishod io a stylo to suit the taste
of the most fastidious lady; handsome chairs,
rotting dowo for want of use, Brussels carpets
simply mouldering away. Coming upon him
in the third story?back room?I could not
help dropping a tear, as I found him slowly
pacing his solitary chamber. Struck with
the compassion so plainly shown on my
face, he was moved as I never saw him
moved before, and told me his history. 'Twas
briefly this: Born in a large family, with
great wealth, his si&ters all married and
wandered away ; somehow, he could not leave
the "old people." Time wore on, giving his
whole soul to the woman of hislove. "O, God !
forgive me ! that 1 worshipped her instead of
thee !" But the old people liked not the idea
ol a "stranger woman" comming to live under
their roof. Having no money to go away with
her?for every effort from childhood was given
to the e.-tite?he gave her up. Year after year
hope grow lainter, fainter. "In time, mother
and father were taken away, leaving me houses,
lands, aud money, but Oh ! my God! so lone
ly, so desolate ! All, all will I now give to ex
change places with the humbled tenant on my
estates, his lovely wife, his merry children !
Go, my friend, tell every one, had I my life
togo over again, I would marry?yea,a "ditch
er's daughter," rather than lead my present
wretched existence." It takes no very acute
observer of the times to see that the moral tone
of our best society is becoming worse and
worse. Young men, marry, marry, marry, for
1 assure you the words spoken thousands of
years ago, "It is uot good that the man should
bo alone, 1 will make him a help meet for him,"
is felt most forcibly to day by this
Old Bachelor.

A CARD.?Circumstances rendering it de
sirable that I should locate in Baltimore, I
have transferred my DENTAL PRACTICE in
Alexandria to DR. D. N RUST. He has been
for so many years associated with me as to need
no introduction or endorsement, his skill, ability
and reputation for honesty and high integrity
being well known. I cordially commend him
to the favor of my friends and patients, as well
worthy of the position to which he succeeds, and
bespeak for him the practice with which, for so
long, I have been favored. ?
