A lite of unobtrusive, but patient de
votion to duty, is not apt to attract the
attention of mankind to any marked
extuit. Its fruits are both beautiful
and valuable, but they are gathcml
and admired with too little recognition
of the painful labor and self de
nial which have produced them. It
would be Ix-tter if the world could be
induced to pause and analize I lie vir
tues of those sublime lives which are
worn to dust on the altar of duty.
So common and consuming is the
thirst for fume, that the absence of it
is too apt to be regarded as the absence
of genius. But I have seen and.
marked one lite which was at once so
lu-auiifu! in its projMjrtions and so un
obtrusive, in its bearing, that while I
must dissent from likening it unto the
ivy which grows ami glistens among
ruins, I i.m by it reminded of the ten
der woodbine, which, doomed to the
shadow of the forest, breathes its frag
rance into every passing breeze, and
Inch, while it please and surprises
the passer by, haves him to wonder
over and enquire theorigin of so much
sweetness. Suc h a life was that which
these lines are intended to commem
orate. Julia Ann Chapman was born
in an age which is said to have been
fruitful virtue. The shadow of Na
poleoii had passed off t lie old world
and the ow r of Knglaud had again
been overthrown in the new one. A
long and proserous era ot eace had
dawned, and our fathers and mothers
hail been remanded by events, to a life
of simplicity an 1 industry. Those of
them who came west of the Illut
Ilidgc and erevted their tabernacles
in its most fertile localities, like the
defendants of Noah, left the pomp of
the world behind tliem and brought
up their children in a school whose
discipline has never been excelled.
The subject of this sketch seemed to

The modesty of its beautiful valleys,
and the purity of its streams, which
there fill their crystal urns, and start
upon tl.cir silvery paths to th Ohio,

was beloved by all who ever looked
down into the depths of her spaikling
eves, and those who were permitted to
sound and learn the purity of her heart
regarded her with a devotion which
was incapable of alloy. In her J-lh
year, she fi rst met and embraced Jesus,
aid during the remainder of her life,
she walked in all the painful ways ot
duty, supported by His mighty hand,
ami eomforted by His counsel a-id His
promises. Need I add, that at its close,
stie gladly went out with Him into the
splendid heritage to which si e ha I so
long and patiently journied? ForlSi

Cordial Reception of Com

The formal Reply Referred to a
Committee of Nine.
Louisville, May 8 The great
fensation in the proceedings of the
General Conference to day was in the
reception of ihe three commissioners
from the M. K Chirrch North, ltev.
A. S. Hunt, 1). D., lie v. 0. II. Fow
ler and Gen. Clinton B Fisk. They
were formally introduced to the Gen
eral Conference and presented their
commission from the bUhops, Tuey
were presented to the bench ok
bishops by Dr. L. M. Lee. of Vir
ginia, lr. J. E. Evans, of Georgia,
and Hon. S. Bobo, of South Carolina,
After an interchange of introductions
and greeting between the bishops and
visitors, they were presented to the
Conference by Bishops McTyeire, and
Dr. Hunt addressed the Conference
in a long speech. la the course ol
his rem rks he said :
We glory together in our peculiar
doctrines, in our peculiir doctrines ol
Methodism. We glory in the same
founder. We should certainly come
together occasionally to exchange
such fraternal feelings.
In concluding, Dr. Hunt read a
very old letter from Bishop Asbury,
lull, as he expressed it. of jottings ot
Methodism. With these bonds of
common history we come before you
with bonds of cu'.hUMasm charac
teristic of Methodism we aUo come.
Let lexicographers rage if tliey n il!:
let it be denounced in unmitigated
terms as it was. Enthusiasm is one
of the strongest and steadiest inciters
to no'o!e deeds. We take it and go
forth villi it and achieve glory for
the cause we have espoused .
Dr. Fowler, in his remarks,
referred to many points rf union
between the two Churches. lie
referred to
van i ei:i; i lt' s endowment
of Vanderbilt University as a symbol
of brotherly love felt by the North
towards the South, and concluded
there is no longer cause for estrage
tnent. When we know one another
we will love one another. This day,
in the name of the company I repre
sent, I give you my hand, as you
have my heart, leav ng the question
of union to be settled in the lu ure.
Gen, Fi.sk made a very eloquent ad
dress, and was frequently interrupted
by hearty applause.
At the conclusi n of General Fi.-k's
remarks, Itev. A. W. Wilson, Wash
ington City, in viov of the impor
tance of the subject, and ia o.der to
its proper presentation for considera
tions of tle Conference, moved that
a committee of nine be appoin'cd by
the Chair to prepare and present to
the General Conference for its con
sideration, a sutiable r spouse to the
greeting borne by the fraternal mes
sengers. The motion was adapted,
and the Chair said ne would announce
the committee hereafter.
bishop m'tyeike
then turned to the Commissioners
and addressing them, announced
that in dun time and in a formal
way the General Conference wou'd
make a response to the message borne
by them; meantime he cordially in
vited them to the freedom of the bar
of the Conference, and to occupy
scats upon the platform expressing
the hope that their sojourn would be
pleasant and productive of good.
The utmost harmony and good feel
ing appeared to prevail during the
meeting, and expressions of good
will were made by the Commissioners
as expressing the sentiment of the
Northern Church received with hearty
applause." Among other matters
presented to the Conference was a
memorial from Alabama' in regard
to the General Conference tnLinr
into consider ition the expelling from
the Church all members engaged in
for other than medicinal uses. Ue

regard ta the expediency of e.ectirg

in view of the increasing power a- d

ti the Comnittie on Episcopacy.
Civil Rights An Important
Compromise Probable.
Washington, May 8. At an ad
journed meeting of the Senatoral
caucu this morning, there was a
long discussion of the pending civil
rights bill, with a view of miking
it acceptable to all members of the
majority by agreeing upon some
modification of its provisions. No
definite conclusion was reached, but
it is believed action will be taken at
another caucus . to provide for such
I chingas in the bill as will clearly
admit of separate schools being
provided for white and colored chil
dren, and also for separate accom
modations by inn-keeper.?, pro
prietors ot theaters, etc., on. cjc
j dition that equal advantages, arc
ttcurci to all tla.scs.
; Coleiuan in the Penitentiary.
"Chester" writes the Petersburg
Aei Ift regard to W. D. Coleman's
lodgment in the penitentiary :
'Coleman was of opinion that he
could not be removed from the jail
until the date, but being apprised that
that was not the case and also apprised
of the fact that lils term would not
commence until he reached the peni
tentiary and that all the time spent in
jail would be that much lost, lie made
no objections when told at 5 this
morning to prepare to go. ' He and the
jailor left the jail in a close carriage
about nine o'clock. On the way lie
was tolerably calm, but when he ar
rived at the institution he lost control
of his feelirgs and wept bitterly. He
continued to weep all the lime he was
being dressed in hisptriped suit. Of
all the officers preset. t there was not
one whose eyes were dry. Every man
cried. The jailor turned to go when
the striped suit was brought out, but
so overcome wa3 with emotion and so
blinded with tears that he coKld scarce
ly find the door. So Coleman now be
longs to the herd of striped convicts
who wear the uniform of disgrace, and
hope is shut out froni Ids heart, for he
has no idea that the executive clemen
cy will pe extended to him. Coleman
sat up the greater part of last night
working upon his "vindication" or
"statement." He did not finish it and
took the manuscript with him to the
southern" baptists.
