and valuable results in nftoi
It is Ihc man who docs not believe
that laudable, -well directed effort will
be followed by its appropriate reward,
who lails iii the great mission ol' life;
"According to your faith, so be it unto
you," may apply in the secular no
less, than in the spiritual walks of life.
Let any one hold the conviction
that he can never becomc an artist, a
mechanic, a scholar, and as certainly
as the sun shines or Ciod exists, tho
result will be in accordance with tho
faith held.
So let tho parents and the Church
hold that children cannot be made to
grow up in the fear and love of God,
as the result of a judicious, scriptural
training, or what is equivalent to such
a faith, let them hold no scttied views,
or cherish no definite aims 011 the
subject, and all that they believed
will lif* rr?nlivi-??1
Isor is the result to be wondered at.
Having no faitli in the result of effort
in that direction, no effort was made.
Men when luft free to act, with reference
to all subjects, act as the}' believe.
To believe, therefore, that
"children are a heritago of the Lord,"
and should be, through proper culture,
ana religions training kept for Him,
is to secure in most eases, corresponding
effort to believe the contrary, is
to doom to spiritual neglect, ^and too
often, spiritual ruin, the children when
God entrusts to our call. But what
warrant have wo to expect thnt children
properly trained, may aye will
Income Christians in early life, bo early,
that, as has been the ease with

Oar answer is, "God's sure word oj

to the subject, but the 4th verso
of tho 6th chapter of Ephesians.

Schools. fi
Ma. Editou :?Wo have had during ^
t!>o past season a highly interesting q
and profitoblo cxcrciso in our Sabbath- j
schools, which we think worthy of a ^
placc on record, for the encouragement
ar.d emulation of others, as well ^
as for tho credit of those who participated
in it. Having experienced some 8j
difficulty in former years In kocping
up the interost in our 6chools, wo de
termmed to o^perimont a little on ~
the prize sj-etcm, awarding premiums 01
to tlioso who might excel in certain 81
departments. Accordingly, the pa6? n
lor offered a prize, in cach school, to
the ono who would commit and recite
ihe groatest number of vorsos, in
addition to their other recitations,
from the first ot May until the first a.
of .Noveiubor. At the same time,
suggested that each toachcr also award
a prize lo tho .one who excelled in ^
tbeir respective classes.. The rocitations
were semi-monthly at each P
church, unless ihe pastor was absent,
when tho intervols were longer. In
the Long Cane Church*, commencing
tho 3J Sabbath of May and ending j,
the let Sabbalh of November, tho ^
result was as follows: The first class ^
of young ladies, consisting of six ^
members,, recited in the aggregate w
3,900 verses?two or three members ?>
of iho clafs reciting only a few lesions. B
The highest numbor attaiuod, and ^
that which received the highest prize, j,
! was by Miss Staiia W.?2,059. The j
sccond class of young ladies, consist- j

Measures are being taken to secure the

lio minds of the officials that there will be

This fear and the disturbances tliat have
ccurred in the up country is the reason
iven, and seriously urged by sorae^for tho
itroduction of a bill to organize a militia
jrce, not exceeding thirty thousand men.
)ue section of the bill, it is said, proposes
a organize the Goveruor to enlist men
ulside of the Stato, who have served in the '
cderal army, possibly somo of Sherman's
utumers, and to elation them in such
ouuues as E-Igefield, Abbeville and Newerry,
the inhabitants of which are to be
t>ecially taxed for.their pay and support.
is proposed also, in order to avoid the
anstiiutioonl provision prohibiting any
late from keeping a stauding army, to
all them militia, but to give them the
ime pay aa soldiers of the United Slates

ilk and bombast of a few of the extremists,
