T?ATD. A cotcni crary luniilics us with the
following iiriiolo in relation to Life In
surance. Life Insurance is the cliiM of bencfi
It may hnvc a coMmercial. basis, ns all
monetary schemes must hnvo that arc
intended for hutnan benefit when unsus
tainctl by aims, nevertheless it is a con
trivanco id rich origin, and could only
emanate Irom a mind thoughtful to im
prove the habits ol tlu wliulo family ol
man. Surely that must be esteemed a
magnificent e.-uabliMimeiitthrough which
we can purchase a 'ortun.i by small un-
uual contributions, so that when the
contributor dies he can bequeath that
4..fhiti - M-h.-ipv.-r lie lnnv dpwirn fn
possess it. Kvon in the first year of
this arrangement, and if the insurer
should have made but a single payment,
the slinuhitLd fortune is still at Ins dis
rosal should he die. In fact, it fre
quently occurs that a man thus purchas
cs for a few dollars a sum that it would
take a long lile of industry to amass, se
curing a provision for his wife and fam
ily wholly beyond hi reach but or such
a regenerating medium.
We reuard Lifo Insurance ns part ot
the morality of life, ami when a young
man arrives at the a;;c of self-support
one of the first uses that he should make
of his surplus earnings is to secure a
lifo policy.. It should be t!i2 initial net
ol voluntary prudence, for the rates of
premium arc much less in youth than in
maturer life, and he who insures thus
early will have good leason to congratu
late himself upon his position when he
may have assumed the responsible obli
nations of husband and lather.
It is true that prudence sometimes
cxemplilies itself in other forms as well
ns ;n a resort to life insurance : but there
is no svstcm by which man can so thor
oughly a:id so immediately make a pro
vision for his family as through tho in
estimable channel. Let us assume, for
instance, that a young man twenty-six
years of fure, with a wife, little family
and 8-000 per annum, finds that, after
discharging every claim upon him in an
honorable manner, he is able to put aside
8200 per annum as a sinking fund, in
case a premature death may make his
wife a widow and his children orphans
It will take ncaily a quarter ot a centu
ry of such uniform prudence to amass
the sum ot ?000 ; but a policy ot lusu
effected for a similar amount upon pay
nieut of no more than 03, oO yearly
The great triumph, however, io such a
contract is that the insurer secures at
once a dower to his wife and a provision
for Ins children. 1 hus.it the insure
dies at thirty two years of age, his wife
uud family secure from the policy the
lull sum ol toOOU ; if the same calamity
befalls the uninsured, who has pursued
the other course ol prudence, aud he al
no is called from life at thirty-two, he
cannot ocqueatli to Ins widow oncdourlh
the amount of him whose judgment
taught him to insuio, although he has
expended double the money in tho at
tempt. No one will hesitate in pro
nouncing which path it is most jiroji ta
ble to follow.
It is not only incumbent upon every
man to provide for his family during
his own life, but as a good citizen, as a
worthy christian, and u man of feeling,
to make such arrangements that it shall
not become either, a burthen to his
friends or to society after his own death.
The means are within his reach to effect
this great and noble object it is affor
ded him by life iusurauce, a means of
dispelling poverty and desolation scarce
ly known to our fathers ; but which, iu
the progress ut society, is introduced to
us iu such a benevolent form, thut the
American people are lapidly enlisting
beneath its banners.
Au affecting anecdote was narrated
to us the other day in relation to this
subject, which we will hear repeat.
A o'ergyman was recently attacked
by sickness, and soon was made aware
that his malady was f a fatal character
lie was only thirty. three, but had a wife
And four children. lie had insured his
life at au early period, and though siuce
his marriage his means were uarrowed,
lie contrived to discharge tho aunual
premiums on his policy. The day be
fore his dissolution he remarked to his
wife, " Mary, it rejoices me that you
aud my little cherubs will escape the
penury with which my poor mother had
to struggle as a widow. For this you
are indebted to Life Insurance. I can
not describo to you the grateful feelings
I feel towards these institutions. The
J?0000 which you will receive will be a
fortune ia such able hands as yours. I
wish my poor congregation could appre.
t'iatc the principle upon which my wid
ow will be made rich, for many of them
( re as needy us I, and might be bcuefit-
d by my example."
The pastor, who was s much belov
ed, died, and we are told that nearly all
5:;s conuiVLMtioH insured the'r lives as a
i lli'ilcto his memory, so iihic.1i did they
i v"re his dy'ni;; vvoi js, and the course

Cri'iMspjiiJjiiw of ftJtVJriU
Ma. Knmm: A writer under the
signature of "Acer" (Advocate Jan.
3d complains ot tho management ot
public schools, because Qui many ol
leni ot least,) there is an attempt to
give " moral aud roligiom instruction.
1 his he reirards as eutirely outot place,
objecting cen to the reading of the Hi-
ble and the ottering ot praycl. ioi
but that these things are well enough iu
their place ; but hu is opposed to hav
ing them iu the public schools, lie
says " if wo must have moral instruction
in our school, let it be entirely free
from tho suspicion of sectarianism."
Even moral instruction he would pre
fer to exclude, npparently for tho rea
son that something ho would call secta
rian may creep in.
iNow, Mr. Editor, it is tiuio that the
public school is a secular institution :
and it is proper that auy moral or relig
ious instruction given therein should oc
free from sectarianism, l$ut is there
not reason to suspect that tho fear of
sectarianism is only a pretence, to cover
a real opposition to the Christian reli
gion ? Tho Bible is received by all
nhriRtinns as the word of God, and the
morality there taught cannot bo obuox?
ious to the charge ot sectarianism, un
less th charge comes from those who
either deny or dislike tho Christian re-
ligion. We hope there are none in Elk
couuty who thuy the christian religion,
though we have too much evidence that
there ore many who dislike it. liut if
ltistVteit ought to bo believed, aud
taught to our children, aud no man
need fear iti influence.
I do not propose to discus the ques
tion of i idigious instruction iu the pub
lie schools : but would suggest the iu
ouirv whether nny better text book of
morality can be found than the J$ible;
and whether the religious instruction re-
ported by our County Superintendent
is any more than Moses required of the
Israelites ? " These words which 1 com
mand thee this day. shall be in thine
heart, and thou shult teach them dili
gently to thy children, and shalt tails of
them when thou sittet in thy nousc,
and when thou walkest by tho way, and
when thou liest down, aud wheu thou
risest un." Deut. G, G, 7.
It does notse3iu to have occurred to
your correspondent " Acar" that thero
is a uiuerenoe oeiwcon sectarianism uuu
Catholic Christianity: and that while
the former has no right to enter our pub
lie schools, the latter to a certain ex
tent belongs there, and is essential to
tho highest welfare of our youth, for
time and for eternity. And it will be
my endeavor in a series of brief arti
cles, (if you can afford the space, and do
not fear the charge ot " sectarianism, )
to set forth the leading doctrines of tho
christian church catholic, ths.t those ig
norant ol thcui may be enlightened
- - J -II .1. .u ... i'
that teaches these doctrines ought to bo
shut out from our schools at least on
the ground of icctariunism. And
shall be my endeavor to manifest that
degree ot candor which becomes a oath
olic christian, who has no sectarian ends
to promote, no sectarian prejudice to
overcome. Ii any ol your readers shall
at any time fai! to understand my state
mcnts or to he convinced of their truth
I wish them lo use perfect freedom in
asking explanations of offering objections
J. will try to observe the golucn rule.

Saint Patrick, the patron saint ot
Ireland according to tho generally re
ceived tradition, was born in Scotland,
near tho mouth of tho Clyde, in the
year 372, and died in county Down,
in the old Kingdom of Ulster, about
4(34. When a boy he was captured by
a band of Irish marauders, and carried
with them to Ireland as a slave. Alter a
captivity of six months ho was fortunate
enough to escape, and made his way
back to Scotland, only to be again made
prisoner by the satna parties. Kscaping
for the second time, he resolved to bo-
come a missionary to the Irish, and after
long preparation, was ordnmed in Scot,
land, and afterward consecrated bishop.
Having, says tho old record, visited
Gaul, and perhaps Italy, he passed to
his chosen field of labor, about 432, and
preached the gospel with such extraordi
nary effect that, although not absolutely
the first to introduce Christianity into
that country, he has received tho credit
of its general conversion, lie baptised
the kings of Dublin and Munster, nnd
the seven sons of tho King of Con.
naught, with tho greater part of
their subjects, and before his death had
converted almost the whole island to the
faith. St. Bernard testifies that ho
fixed his Metropolitan See at Armagh,
and it appears that ho appointed other
bishops, with whom he had councils to
settle the discipline of tho church which
he had planted. In his old age he

The woolen manufacturers of Rhode
Island have had two bites at the oho rry
lately. Tho revised tariff gave them
additional protection, and they have re
dueed the wages of the operatives ten
per cent. That will do for once. It is
a pity they could not have a prohib
itory tariff and their operatives work for
nothing. 1 hat might satisfy their ra

Last evening two soldiers camo into
town, hnd when near tho Court H ouse
they were attacked by two men named
A. Ilammill and 1. Giluinrc. Neither
party was hurt, and the soldiers left for
the garrison. About eight o'clock some
fifty soldiers camo into town with car
bines, revolvers and sabres. They hal
ted near tho Court House and fired in
to tho crowd of c-tizens who were stand,
ing near the point where the polls were
located. The ciiizens drew their revol
vers and returned the fire, when a gen
em! riot ensued. Tho soldiers retreat
ed on a run, and tho citizens gave pur
suit. The soldiers took position at the
edge of the town. .A guard arrived
from the post, and tho firing was kept
up for some timo. ' Tho guard anested
several citizens and returned to the gar
rison. Un the way they met llammcll,
who had a gun on his shoulder. He
was ordered by the guard to lay down
the gun, and on his refusal they fired on
him. The ball struck him in tho breast
to the left of the right nipple, and came
out near tho shoudcr blade. Tho woun
ded man died in three hours. Among
tho wounded aro, Mrs. Stewart who
was standing in the door of her own
house shot through tho left foot :
Thomas Simmerman, shot the foro-arm,
