Several weeks since I saw an article
in your paper justly censuring the peo
,. , .,, , j i i :
ple of Chattanooga for their want of
charity but while wc judge others we
should be very cureful that we are blame-
L.sa and I fear our quiet little village
is not entirely so now. Several weeks
wc have had worthy subjects of charity
in our midst, and so far tis I can learn,
! not a helping hand has been raised.
Trul v. no ono has perished at our
doors, but I think our Christian peo
ple might find something to do were
they so disposed. I fear a worldly man
uttered the truth not long since when
he said "there are but few good Sam a
ritans now a days."

I ho Threo-Flfth ltule.
The origin of tho threu-flftha law
was the result of a compromise be
tween tho Southern anil Northern
States, mid as was always tlio enso in
every eompromlsa between tho South
and North, the .South was tho loser.
The three-fifth rule was considered by
the Smith as ii concession, at the lime,,
to Norlhere aggressiveness, and If our
reading of tho history of the early days
of our government bo correct, Mr.
Madison tho great aposllo of con
stitutional frodom, so exprt-Mod him
self. Tho proposition of two-thirds
had been negatived, when in tho spirit
of compromise Mr. Madison proposed
two-filths, which was agreed to. That
ii wus n liberal concession on tho part
of tho slavo owners of tho South was
certainly true, because considered as the
wealthy class of our section of the
Union, the burden of taxation was
greater npou them than upon the same
class in the North. The per capita tax
was alike in its effect npoir tho poorer
class, whether North or South. Allu-
iliorr tn iliis. il eorrosnondont of the
New York Record says :
If the tax were one dollar per bead
it was the same to the poor person in
the North mid the South, for each
would pay the dollar; but not so with
the wcalthv man. If he were a prince
ly merchant in tho North, and owned
no slaves, ho imid tlio dollor on his
owe head only and on each person of
his family, if he had such. Hut how
was it with the opulent planter in the
South, his wealth constituted in a large
part of slaves, on every live of them he
would pay threo dollars, besides the
dollar on 'himself and each one of his
family. It is plainly seen why that
compromise was held in the light of
concession on the part of the Southern
Stu'ei. Do those people in the North

put them in execution.
Since the foregoing lines were writ

eati, thus refers to tin factund protests
against his acceptance :
The Little Hook Uaxftlt speaks in
high praise of Dr. Hunter, and deser
vedly so, as u traveling preacher of the
Methodist Episcopal Church South,
who has been well known through his
labors in Arkansas for more than a
nuarter of a century; and likewise
says that it was 1110 wish oi uio come
people of tho State that he would acc
cept tho position to which he has been
elected by the Legislature.
ConcedingthatDr. Hunter posseses in
a high degree tho intellectual and moral
qualities becoming in a United States
Senator, wo do most earnestly hope,
that ho will respectfully decline this
office. This is otir bone, becauso al
.. . . a .1 .. -...I....
ready he holds, and should (111 a higher
and better o.'lice, tho duties of which
are impcritive on him and most impor
tant to be performed, in view of the
welfare of the Church and of society
in his State. Legislators and Congress
men certainly ought to bo Christian
men, but not Christian ministers. These
ought not to conic down from the pul
pit to occupy even the highest stations
of earthly honor and responsibility.
Besides, even if it were allowable,
the work of the chinch' at this time
ought not to suffer loss by the absence
of "one of her chief ministers, when it
is not probable that he would be allowed
to take his seat in tho Senate, even if
his State were recognized by it.
So wo hope, in view of principle and
policy, that tbo State of Arkansas will
excuse Dr. Hunter. Tho church can
not spare him for work which could be
well performed by some other one of
her worthy citizens.
The Cause of the Stnguation of
Business and Dull Times.
"Dull times;" "nothing doing;"
"business at a stand still ;" "industry
not remunerative;" such are the obscr-
vations hourly made everywhere, and mJaf ni,pTOtll.h rt,e holidays gives great

lecmitin coin on presentation, ire
depressed business condition of the
country can not, therefore, be laid to
ii want ot money, tor there is a super
abundance of it somewhere jn the
country. The cause of the dull times
is not in the want of money to carry
on with ease and facility the business
of the country, but in tho oppressive
burdens nil branches of business are
compelled to sustain in the shape of
taxes. That is the mill-stone that is
hanging to the neck of labor, industry,
trade and commerce. 'Profits are nearly
all taken by the tax gatherer, and every
thing consumed is thereby rendered so
higli as to compel everybody to do
with as little as possible.
Under such a condition or things
there can be no stimulus to industry.
except up to the point required simply
for self p eserviuion to Keep uie mill
from ceasino- work altogether and' to
prevent production from languishing
into complete indifference. Prosperity
is out of the question, when a large
part nt the results of labor are eaten
up by taxes. Discouragement takes
r f . .
the place of cheerful hopefulness, and
diminished consumption makes trade
dull, times hard, business stagnant.
Pk-onomy in public expenditures, the
raising ly taxa'-ion no more money
than Is absolutely required for an
economical admisistration of the gov
ernment, anil the payment of the pub
lic interest should be rigidly insisted
on by the people. They sbonld demand
of Congress and of tho executive de
partments of tho Government a cur
tailment of expenses, a -.d the abolish
ment of all useless expenditures. There
is no doubt that the expenses of the
Federal government can be reduced so
that not more than one-half the taxes
now raised need be levied. That would
ba a great relief, and under it business
would again revive, and prosperity
receive a fresh start. Let it io tried.

Napoleon's Rjctukat. Tho Unita
Cuttolica; of Rome, of Nov. 27th, con
tains an article entitled, "The Fall of
the First and Second Empire," from
which the following is an extract:
'Since the Sieck and the I'emps, of
Paris, speak openly of the downfall of
the Popes, we may speak a little of the
second empire. Napoleon the third
has fallen back; he is lost. Ho has
retreated from Poland from fear of
Russia; he haa retreated from Ger
many from fenr of the needle gun ; he
has retreated from Mexico from fear of
the United States; lie has retreated
from Rome from fear of Orsina and
Massini." The clerical journal prints
two columns in tho same strain, and
concludes by saying, thnt it sends the
article in print t the bmperor at unm
niecrne. to Gen. Floury, to M. de Mai
ret, and to M. de Sartiges, in order
that they may put it in their archives,
and take it down for perusal when the
