That was a Noble reply which Augustus made and one which we wish All boys would remember when any one asks them to Tell a falsehood. One Day when Augustus was sent to the grocery by his Mother to get some milk in a Pitcher Robert wanted to go in his Stead and when they got into the Street he tried to Force the Pitcher out of his brother a hand. Augustus held the Pitcher fast till at last it was broken to pieces in the scuffle by falling on the ground. Augustus began to cry bitterly. A person who was in the Street and saw How it happened came up and told him to say when he got Home that the woman who sold the milk had broken the Pitcher. Augustus wiped his eyes and looking steadfastly in that person s face said a a that Touhl he telling a lie i will Tell the truth then my Mother will not scold me but if she should i would rather he scolded than Tell a modifications. Review of brother Watson. I a ? a a. A. I s a # that there is any necessary connection Between the result pointed out by the editor of the North Western and the discipline of the methodist episcopal Church is a position which to has not Only failed to prove but which he can not prove. And we hero record our deliberate conviction that they who thus speak of the discipline of the methodist episcopal Church Are guilty of making common Causo with her enemies in misrepresenting her. And in so far Are no better than they Are. That discipline is no More responsible for the actions of the Church South than it is for the backsliding of any of its members and their final going Down to hell. And right hero we must be permitted to take serious exceptions to the course of our new Rule Brethren they virtually admit All that their enemies among the us traits at the North contend for and instead of hurling the indignity Back upon them they take up their accusations and charge them upon Brethren of their own Church. Thut they become accusers of Brethren whose antislavery integrity and firm adherence to Tho Church in the hour of trial we would sooner Trust than Many of these self game individuals. What then Aro the probabilities that our Confer fences As now organized in slave territory will better carry out the provisions of our discipline than did their Brethren who went Ott in the a a great secession a in answering this question we shall not to quote brother that is hot now what it was a few years since or that slavery is changed or that there is no necessary relation Between cause and effect a but we shall assume that by a great charge in the times and a Radical change in the circumstances under which we Are now extending our operations in slave territory we May assuredly expect the utmost loyalty on the part of preachers and people. That Tho times have changed needs no other remark than to Call attention to the fact that they have changed for Tho better so far As Tho item we Aro considering is concerned few who properly observe Tho a signs of the times will be prepared to deny. Tho leaven is spreading slowly surely silently but still it is spreading North and South Good men Are beginning to feel and act the people Are coming to the Light. But let us look More particularly at the change of circumstances under which we Are now prosecuting our work in this territory. 1. To went to a tried people. For four years after Tho secession they remained scattered and peeled and torn rather than go into a pro slaver Church. They resisted every attempt to coerce them and treated with the contempt they deserved All attempts to incite Public opinion against them. We regard the firm adherence to principles which then Aud has since characterized our people in the South As worthy of All Honor and were it not for a vision so grossly prejudiced new a lists would see and Admire too instead of acting and writing As Many of them now do. It required people of nerve then to occupy the position they did and ii requires no loss nerve to belong to the myth excessive Joy. A when i was in Tho West indies a says Rev. Robert Young a a Soldier condemned by a court martial was led out to be shot. His coffin was placed before him upon which to was requested to Kneel and Tho regiment to which he belonged was drawn up to witness the affecting scene. A Bandage was placed Over the eyes of the unhappy culprit and the chaplain after commending his soul to god had left him when the commanding officer cried in a solemn but firm tone a make ready present a and then instead of commanding the soldiers to lire As the unfortunate Man expected he stepped up to him Anh said a the governor pardons Tho Soldier on hearing this fell from his coffin and swooned but on coming to himself he clapped his hands for Joy and loudly exclaimed a god bless the governor he has saved my life lie has saved my life a a punctuality. It is said of Melancthon that when he made an appointment he expected not Only the hour but the minute to be fixed that no time might be wasted in the idleness of suspense and of Washington that when his Secretary being repeatedly late in his attendance Laid the blame on his watch to said a a you must get another watch or 1 another Bakers profits. It is estimated that a barrel of flour made into bread by Tho Bakers in this City costs the consumer full $20. In View of the fact that a barrel of flour costs about this May be said to be a High Price for the process of traveler. For the Western Christian advocate. Ministerial support. A a a. Tins subject is still becoming More and More a matter of interest and i am pleased to see the ministry and the membership of our Church disposed to think and act More promptly and efficiently. I have received communications from several Brethren who have noticed my former articles in the advocate. Conflicting opinions Are entertained and expressed by the Brethren who so kindly favor me with their views and plans. Home bupd080 that we have rules enough and charcoal dust. A correspondent of the new England Farmer who subscribes a a. B a from Lowell gives the result of his experience in the use of charcoal the free air that envelops the world giving life to every living thing the virtue of atonement extends to All a bringing life and immortality to Light a thanks be to god for his unspeakable gift a a a this doctrine is encouraging to the gospel minister. He is commissioned to a preach the gospel to every but his energies Are not paralysed nor his Zeal Frozen by the thought that some Are doomed to perish for want of interest in the atonement., he views and addresses every human being As the Purchase of redeeming blood. He contemplates his congregation invariably As com 1. F. Thompson
