. Interesting Revival of Religion.
There ta going on in the Methodist Church,
la this place, a most Interesting revival of re
ligion. Tho meeting tins been progressing for
pw ft week, and tho Louse is crowded night
lf.t.Up to this time, some twelvo or fourteen
conversions Litre taken place, and much con
tarn It manifested on the part of 'all who
ore In attendance, anJ more especlullj lie
young. The Rev. i Dr. Drake, and the
Be. Mr. R. D. Black, ere1 the officiating min
isters, and' their incessant labors hnvo been
crowned with unbounded success. ,,They are
unceasing and vigilant in the promulgation
of the "glad' tidings of great joy," and dc
eervoraucb praise for what they are doing
for the morals of our community. ., . ...
We noticed at eevcrul of these meetings,
yoang men taking their companions by the
arms and leading them to tho Throne of Grace
and even the young ladies, are thus iudus
trtously engage J. . There is good in nl! this,
nd t sincerely hope, there;wi!l notion
youth left in all ourlnntl out of the pale of
religoui restraint. j 'Without religion, tho
worU la a blank-an interminable wildernoBij
of woe with it, tho wilderness is made to
bloom like o garden of roses.
' Death or Alexander N. IUnnia. Wo have
received the following notice of tho death of
Harris from a friend. No Minister in this
community had a stronger influence than
Harris, and none wero mora vindictive or
more bitter In their denunclntons of Union
men In this country, lie died In Georgia
refugee from justice aud the avengers of
wrong.
" Reliable iutolii genco of the death of this
man Harris bus been received, who is so well
known by all, for his acts and his fatal course
during the past four years' fiery' trials in our
land. I think that thoso boautiful lines of
Pope might well be applied to Lim :
Let tna llv anwon, unknown,
And unlnmcutwl lot me dl
Kor inoiiml, nor umnauicnt, uor etooo.
Tell where I Ho."
lie was a Minister of tho Gospel; he had
tAken tipon himself a most fearful, a most
alarming responsibility. God snvs to every
watchman," If thou give them not warning
tneir blood win do required at thy hands
Awful I awful I must bo tho thoughts of the
unfaithful Minister in his last expiring throes,
at he closes his eyes lu the dreadful Eilunce
of death, and goos to his final audit, with the
blood ofmnrdeiod iinnocenco resting upon
013 soui. I'.vcry Minister is a Jieaveu np-
polutoa sentinel, ana the 1'oct paints Ins re
lations well, and pencils his duty and dan
ger, when on tho ove of a conflict with the
powers of darkness ho exclaims :
"la Heaven's high arch nbovo his bead, a
glorious form appeared,
WhoBO left band boro a flambeau bright, his
right a nccptro reared,
And from his throne ho thus addressed, the
watchman on his round,
What of the night, wutcbrnnn, what of the
night?
Tho myriad foe como on, to try their might.
A nlht assault I and if tho trumps mistake
a single sound,
I'll bang upon theso battlements the watch

There is then no " flagrant wrong" for it

from having sold it more largely under cost

riTho death' of Lord PalmehstO.n
causes tho mind to recur involuniccr
ly to tho rcmnrkablo length, of tho
career which it closes. When ho was
bom, tho'grcat Nai'olf.on was yet a
boy at school at Uricnno; Dr. John
son had not yet passed off. tho stago
of life; DciiKK was in . tho zenith of
his fame; whiio Byiion, and a host of
other celebrities long sinco dead, had
not yet como into the world in which
the lato Viscount played so distin
guished a part. ' Ho entered Parli
mcnt in 1800, which was 'marked as
tho year in which the hand of death
closed tho long, rivalries' of Fox and
Pitt. Tlio ' Statesman who mado
his first speech on tho destruction of
the I'anish licet at Copenhagen, has
a record which impresses tho mind
by tho extended duration of its cxis-
tatice. when wo remember : that ho
was Secretary of War beforo AniiA-
n am Lincoln was born, one can fully
appreciate tho character of tl.o labor
he has undergone, and feel the groat
or astonishment at tho vivacious
good health which he retained to the
last.
Tho pluck which was-showed by
the lato Premier, during his long ad
ministration of niraira of tho Foreign
olficc, gave him his best titlo to the
admiration of his countrymon. His
tact in tho management of all'airs in
tho of Commons enabled him to ro
tain popularity, when ho had first
drawn attention to himself. A read)'
oft' hand debater, ho was prompt to
defend himself or his party from criti
cism, and from long practico ho bo
canio tho most completely armed po
litical gladitor of modern times. Ilo
had every style of attack or dofunso
rend', and tho manner in which he
adapted himself to tho temper of his
audience at tho time, gavo him nu im -measurnbblc
superiority over bis coin
petitorsfor pubic favor. His position
us partisan might be said to be mid
way between the conversation and
the radicalism of his party, but his
keen senso of tho drift of popular
opinion always led him to givo up
impracticable ideas before the inoro
obstinato of his colleagues, and win a
credit for liberality of Rcntiment
which he often did not deserve Ilo
gavo his support to Earl Guky's lie
form Hill in 132, and was consequent
ly defeated at the next election by
his constituency of Cambridge Uni
versity, thus forming- a parrallel to
tho lato defeat of Mr. (Tlaiistone at
Oxford. His course- has been a
changeable one, and his political eno
mios have Pot liiiled to charge him
with every inconsistency, which has
probably been a perfectly natural re
sult of his temperament and cast of
mind. Ilo has had a habit of adros
ing himself, to the electors of tlio lit
tle Eorotigh of Tiverton, which ho
h:i9 represented since IM"), on all
questions which ho wished to ppring
upon his parly or his opponents, very
much inthomtylo that Mr. Skwakii
adonl'a nt Auburn. Ilo has not, in
short, merited tho praiso of his frionds
or tho defamation of hi enemies. Ho
has not perpetrated any nets which
havo disastrously aH'ccled the wel-
faro of his countrymen or mankind;
and it can hardly be sum that no lias
ever'dono anything for their real ad
vantage, unless forced into it by tho
necessities of his party. To sum up
his career, ho has been a successful
pulitieiiin.

Returning to Plaguo tho Inventor.
It id truo thut tho lrccdinou in somo
sections of tho South havo becomu
unsettled in. thoir views in conse
qtienco of tho impression among them'
that they wero to bo put in ubsoluto
ownership' of the land of their lato
rebel masters. Such is reported lo
bo tho caao in portions of loxas, and
Fluke's llullotin, a Texas apur, gives
tho following account of tho origin of
such an impression :
During tho war, when designing
politicians wishod to firo ho Houthern
heart anew, thoy told tho people that
if they did hot succeed in secession,
their lands would bo divided amongst
their slaves, and tho whites of tho
South would bo placed beneath tho
blacks, and become Lowers of wood
and drawers of water. Politician
said so from tho stump to audiences
in which thcio wero negroes ; their
prcsonco there can easly bo under
stood by all who aro acquainted with
tho Southern States: they nro ncquaiiK
ted with tho Southern States j thoy
nrc thero as carriago drivers, waiters
and ladies'- maids. They hoard theso
things and repeated them to other.
Tho newspapers containing tho aanio
assertions wero carried into tho dif
ferent homesteads, and their contents
read and discussed before the negroes.
Tho assertion that tho Federal olllcers.
wero in tho habit of associating willi
tho colorod femalos was mado boforo
l'emnlo servants. In ft few words, nil
the falso statements which formed ft
great deal of tho political cajiital of
tho war orators, preachers and prcssos,
were carried from tho political gather
ings, parlors and dining tables,' to tho
houses of tho family sorvants, und
from thero to tho tlolds. Many of tha
whiles mado theso assertions and ro-.
nrdod it as rank treason to contra
dict them. When a (Jonfedernto Sena
tor ttirnod to tho poor men in ftdpcoeU
near Houston, and told them thnt nf
tcr tho downfall of tho Confederacy
thoir daughters would bo approached
with oilers of mnrtingo by negroes, it
is probable that somo negroes hoard
the uddruss, It was publishod and.
read and discussed in many house
holds throughout this Statu, and no
groes heard nnd repeated it." And
rellecting, sensible men will not bo
mirprised that somo of tho nogrooa
entertain those falso Ideas," 1
