GOLDSBORO, N.O, Saturday, APRIL 22, 1882 ONE MILLION DOLLARS FOE THE EDUCATION OF THE FEEEDMEN OF THE SOUTH A RICH DONATION. ' Norwich, Conn.j April 12. John F. Slater, a wealthy gentle man of this city, has signified hie Intention to create a fund of $1, 000.000, to be known as the "John P. Slater fund," for the edocation of the freeduaen. The fond is to be vested in the bands of trustees, who are to apply the income ac cording to the instructiou of the donor. I is uuders ood here that the act , incorporating thee trns tees is to be presented to the Sen ate at Albany, N. Y., to day. Mr Slater thus explains, in one para eraDh of his letter to the trustees, his general object : "The general obieot which I desire to nave ex clnsively pursued is the uplifting of the lately emancipated popnia tion ofthe Southern States, and their Dosterity by conferring on them the blessings of Christian education. The disabilities form erlv suffered by this people, and their singular patience and fidelity in the great crisis of the nation es tablish a iust claim on the sympa thy and good will of human and patriotic men. I cannot but.feel the compassion that is due in view of the prevailing ignorance, and which exists through no fanlt of their own." . Mr. Slater purposely leaves the trustees the largest lib erty in making each changes in the methods of applying the fand as may from time to time seem wise. He suggests that the edu cation of teachers for the colored race may be the wisest purpose to which the fund - can be put after thirty-three years three-fourths oi the trustees shall for any reason agree that there is no further nse for the fund in the form it is now instituted. Be authorizes them to apply the capital to the establish ment of foundations subsidiary to the existing institutions of higher education, so as to make them more freely accessible to poor coin ored students, under the present institution of the fund he special ly wishes that neither, principal nor income be expended in land or buildings for any purpose than that of safe and productive invest ment for income.

' The following is an extract from a recent sermon by Rev. Dr. Tal "People will not be interested in 7 what we say unless we understand the spirit of the day in which we live. All the woe-begomsh statis tics are given by those who are trying in onr time to work the worn out machinery of the past times. "The simple fact is, the people are tired of the humdrum of re ligionists. Religions humdrum is the worst of all humdrum. Yon say over and over again, Oome to Jeans.' until the phrase means ab solutely nothing. Why do you not tell them a story which wil make them come to Jesus in five minutes 1 You say that all Sun day school teachers and evange lists and all ministers must wing their illustrations from the Bible; Christ did, not when be preached. He drew them from the lilies, from the ravens, from salt, from a can dle, from a bushel, from long- faced hvDocrites, frooi gneatsfrom moths, from large gates and small gates, from a camel, from the needle's eye, from yeast in me doueh of bread, from a mustard seed, from a fishing net, from debtors and creditors. That is the reason multitudes followed Christ. His illustrations were so easy and so understandable. "Looking across to a hill, Christ saw the city of Jerusalem. Talk ing to the people about the con spicuity of ChriHtiau xmp!v He said : " The world is looking at nn. bft careful, i .A city that, is set on a hill ; cannot be hid.' While He was speaking of the divine eare of God's children a bird: flew muL'He said: 'Behold the ra- r . . . . . . . vens.' Then loosing down in tne vallev. all covered at that season with flowers, He said : 'Consider the lilies.' Now what is the nse of going away off iu some obscure nart of history, or on tbeotner side of the earth, togecan iuus tration, when the earth and the heavens are full. Wbv should we go away off to get an illustration of the vicarious suffering of Jesus Christ when onlv last week at Bloomfield, New Jersey, only ten , or fifteen miles from here, two little children were walking on the railroad track ana a train was coming, but they were on a bridge of trestle work, and the little elrl took her brother atd let him down through the trestle work as gently as she could toward the water, very carefully and lov- inelvand cautiously, so that be talent be picked up by tnoee wno were standing near by. While doing that the train struck her. and hardly enough of her body was left to gather into the funeral casket. "What is the use of our going away off to find an illustration in past ages, when four or five weeks ago, in Michigan, a mail-carrier on horse back, riding on, pursued by those flames which had swept over a thousand miles, saw an old man by the roadside, dismounted; helped the old man on the horse, saying, 'Now whip up and get away.' The old man got away, but the mail-carrier perished. "What is the use of going away off in ancient history to find an u lustration of the fact that it is dangerous to defy God, when last summer, iu the Adirondacks, I saw a flash of lightning and a bolt eo vivid, I said, 'That struck some thine very near. A few days af terward we found that two farm ers" that Monday morning, had been seated under a tree, the one boasting how that, the day before. on the Sabbath, he had got his hav in. and so cheated the Lord V w out' of that part of the time any how, and both of them laughed over the achievement by whibc they had wronged the Lord of His holv dav. when . the lightning strnek one dead instantly and the other had been two weeks in bed when we left the Adirondacks, and and has become an invelid ior life. "Ministers should seek to be original in their illustrations, and strive to interest those they seek to make converts of."

The request was not unreasonable, so we granted it but more to oblige the fluent than an v thine else: for we renltv did not want the machine, and had not he remotest idea or buying it.
