A Step Taken Which Means Much in the Educational Affairs of the Race in this State. nit 'olored State Baptist Convention, whieh was in session in Newberry last week, took a step which for some time had been ag:tat.ed, and the effect of which will be largel; felt in 0,c future edturational atlairs of the race in this State. For some time, in fact since the emancipation of the race, the col ored Baptists as a denomination have had no voice in their educational atfairs. the State Convent ion has been officially supporting Benediet College, an insti tution in Columbia. under the exclusive direction and control of the Home Mis sion Sotkiety of the North, and though the Convent ion has each year made lag appropriations for this institu on. :t has had no voice whatever in 1 :.,:met, t It was determined :. se'er t ht ot:eial connect ion of the l0 v.eo w ith this college, nt iin a I " anaenismn to the Northern w ho have been using their best n:l the education of the race ate. but on the ground that n1 m:at ion, having been aided oft ; freedom, now large .irsong enough to do some tour propositions were .1 's of the convention: Sou.t h Carolina Educa :..a'nary" Sunday School its Integrity and inde rved from any out aof deomininational . \\wil be exclusively . per o\\'n .l by another n operly be our organ : of revelations made b hg of the deeds of eet :hat the college . .nd........it(er the original - :',ar.ce be ours. we Ac Can give it our indi i . t':e.a. i,pat ronage - ..d r the Board, --hools of the we "re intro 1 art. of ('har o.ii.ipted >ly the " n!tZi have been - bv som1e of the the Convention - :i to 'ut this ('onven .t in the eves of t ht" lit"'ve that if his body are wnIe race and its - ' onvention ut -. n misleading and 1 expr1 essions as ,larely and - - "rd? as enter - and friendly -.- .-. .rac . in wliose - - u a we believe - - ts f the black - - n country are - r.dent, and' that m lfnation we are -people of both for any andl all havec rend'ered'( us, - eng at presentI -- ight to own andl r.,. that are being -na of the South * . . !

Paysiger's - Sadly in Need of Church Building. About a hundred years ago there was a flourishing sttlement of Quakers, or Friends, as they preferred to be called, on, or near Bush River; and not far from Mendenhall's mill, and a few miles away, on the road leading to Stoney Batter, was another set tlement of a people, kindred in religious senti ment and feeling. These were known as Dunkards, or properly, Tunkers, the meaning of which word is i)ippers. They were Baptists, but instead of imn mersing in the usual manner of other Baptists, the person to be baptized knelt in the water-a stream of flowing water was dipped forward by the officiating minister three times, until the body was completely covered by the water. Both these sects were com posed of men and women who believed in peace and good will, and both tried to exemplify in their lives the spirit of peace. Both sects vanished from New berry County long ago, and their meet ing houses have long since disappeared, though many people remember when the Quaker meeting house was still standing; and it is probable that many persons remember hearing a funeral sermon preached in it by Rev. IMe Swain, when he was pastor of tho Iethodist church here--probably the last sermon ever preached in it. The Tunker meeting house (lisap peared near, if not quite, at huid red years ago; but the graveyard is still used as a burying place by the descend ants and some of the friends of those who once worshipped there; but there is no meeting-house nor church building near for the friends to meet in and hold the funeral services. It is a very pleasant, quiet spot, and the grounds are kept neat and clean by the pious care of S. S. Paysinger, who lives near in a house built by the first, and probably, the only pastor the Tunker Churc-h proper, in Newberry, ever had. lie sleeps there, and also Joseph Summers, whose daugi.ter he married --and many others of former days, as those of recent years. Many of the ftmily of Hawkins are buried there, and also that of Dennis and Summers, and ot hers, whose names are not now remembertd . The oldest marked rock is that of Prather, 1811. Many were buried there before that time. James Ilowe, anl English gentleman, a relation of Ad miral Lord Howe, lies buried near the centre of the graveyard, spot mot marked. The place is still used as a burying ground by several families, and may be, and ought to be, for many years to come. Now, in order to assist in holding the place sacred and to keep it from being profaned by any unlaw"ful hands, would it not be well to erect a building of convenient size, dedicate(d to religious uses, especially the services generally in use in the burial of the (lead. The amount necessary for this pious purpose could be easily raised by those, and the friends of those, wvho still bury their dead there. The house could be used occasionally for meetings for the wor ship andl praise of God at other timhes than for funeral services -and by all denominations of Christians. Th'le near est houses of worship are, at least, three miles dlistant -E benezer, Colony, at. Lukes, often calledl Stone Ilills This place being central, and already rendered sacred by many saintedl dead who1l rest there, mighlt in this way he rendered exceedingly useful andl become a centre of spiritual influence for good for many generations. Think of it friends and bretharen and neighbors, anId if your hlearts give throbs of earnest ap)proval, as they must, you will give your names as sub scribers to .\r. S. S. Paysinger, who lives near thle spot, and wvhom you all know; or to Mr. E. 1H. Aull, the editor and publisher of this paper, The I lerakl and News, who wvill very cheerfully do all he can to aid any enterprise as wor thy as this. Your friend and brothier, X.
