when some one entered the store
who wished to see him. I told him
I had planned to go to Dantonville
that evening, hut would call on him
when I returned. H-c said lie had
to go 'to Dantonville too, and bade
me call on him in that place, at the
same time signifying that we could
arrange matters there. After thlar
I went over by the lake, and when
I came back I learned that Mr. Wal-
lace had been gone half an hour.-
I got my horse ready to start. I
made the remarks which have been,
sworn to; but I made them joking-
ly, in view of the friendly meeting
we were to have, little thinking of
what was to occur. I rode off, and
at the distance of some ten miles,
in the little wood, I found Mr, Wal-
lace'e horse standing by the side of
the road. A little further on I found
the merchant weltering in his blood.
I leaped from the saddle and knelt
down by the side of the body. I
turned his face up and called his
name several times. The flesh was
yet warm, but? life seemed extinct.
I got my hands and clothes thus be-
spattered with blood, but I thought
not of that. WhKen I found that he
was gone, and that I could not well
handle the body alone, I re-mounted
my horse and started back for help.
"It has been urged that if I had
really sougl;t help, I would'have rid-
den on towards Dantonville, where
I could have found it wi"t'n half a
tile, rather that towards a point
where there was no house for over
six miles. But I could pot stop to
think then. My first intent was to-
wards home, and I followed it. I
had gone four miles, when iny horse
fell. He was too lame to trot.-
oon afterwards I was overtaken by
Dunk Harrold and another man,
who arrested me for the murder.-
With regard to the knife-the knife
found was mine, and it had been
stolen from me that day."
The youth sat down as he ceased
'speaking, and the judge shook his
"Any one can invent a story like
that," he said, in his charge to the
jury, "but no one could have invent-
ed the circumstances which bear
against the prisoner."
In short, there seemed to be no
hope for the youth. Though people
pitj~d him, yet I could .see they
shook their heads dubiously when
he pleaded his innocence.
The judge had summed the evi-
dence all up, making it stronger
against the prisoner than before, if
possible, and the jury were on the
point of retiring, when a sudden
commotion was perceptible at the
door, and in a moment more a young
girl, or maiden, rushed into the
court room, with her long, chestnut
hair flowing wildly in the wind, hei
bosom heaving deeply, and her eyes
fairly burning with intense eager
ness. It was Isabel Wallace. She
was a beautiful girl, tall, straight
and nobly proportioned; with a face
of striking loveliness, and a form o
queenly beauty. She castonequic
glance at the prisoner, full of love
eagerness and hope, and then turn
ing to the judge, she cried:
"Is he tried yet, sir ?-is hefoun
guilty ?"
"Not yet-but he soon will be,
answered the judge, overcoming hii
astonishment as quick as possible
for the benefit of his dignity.
"Oh! he's innocent. He's inno

"He's not the murderer. Ho! -offi

room Harrold had .fived nearer t

Different Kinds of Christians.
There are Christians who attend
church twice a day, rain or Fhine;
those who attend only once, if it is
pleasant, and not at all, if it is not.
There are Christians who attend all
kinds of concerts, except monthly
concerts ; Christians who.don't at-
tend the theatre, and Christians
who do; Christians who play cards.
and Christians who do not; Chris-
tians who attend dancing parties,
but don't give them; Christians who
attend them and give them, but
don't dance themselves ; Christians
who dance to a piano, but don't to a
violin; Christians who send their
children to a dancing-school,. but
not to Sunday School; Christians .
who think wine-drinking wrong, and
Christians who don't.
There are Christian mothers who
would attend .prayer-meeting, but
can't leave their families so long-
one hour-buit who attend gay par-
ties once a week, leaving their fam-
ilies for three or four hours at a
time. There are Christians who
never have family prayers, and
there are Christians. who- have ;
those who.never, hardly read their
bible, but read the evening papers
daily. There are members too poor
to take a religious paper, while sub-
scribing for two or. three secular
journals. There are Christians who
think dancing, card-playing, and
theatre-going right, but preaching
about them wrong. There are Chris-

MORAL COURAGE.--Sidney Smith,
in his work on moral philosophy,-
speaks in this wise of what men
lose for the want of a little courage,
or independence of mind:
A great deal of talent is lost ia
the world for the want of a little
courage. Every day sends to their
grave a number of obscure men
who have only remained in obscuri-
ty because their timidity prevented
them from making an effort; and
who if they could only have been in- -.
duced to begin, would in all proba-

Salt Io Destroy Wormnis.
In thut ,excellent paper, the Ger-
mantown Telegraph, we find some
remarks on the value t'f salt to de-
stroy worms on vegetables. We
copy what follows: A weak brine,
not exceeding the strength of sea-
water, proves a remedy for the
"squash destroyer," one rf the in-
siduous and persevering ns well
as voraciously destructive enemies
with which the gardener aid fruit
grower is called to contend. It is
also a most effectual preventive of
aphides, or plant lice, vermnin which
prey upon the cabbage aiil turnip
tribes. In every instance of the ap-
plication of brine to those vegeta-
bles that has fallen under our ob-
servation, its success has been comn-
plete. No injury need be appre-
hended from a very liberal applica-
tion, say one quart to a plant, ifthe
solution be of the st rength indicated.
All the cabbage tribe are liable
to be attacked, and fatally injured
by minute ma)ggots, resembling ve-
ry nearly the maggts i.t cheese,
and which are doubtless the larva nf
some fly. There is another enemy,
also, by which they arc frequently
infested--a small grub, similar in
many respects to those found in
S corn and potato hills, and which
not unfrequeutly prove very de-
structive. Salt water appleld to the
hills will have a tendentwy to arrest
their depredations, and if thlie appli-
cation be repeated frequently, say
once in two or three lays, it will
effectually destroy 'or drive them off.
The water, however, should not
be allowed to come in contact with
the foliage, in tlis instance, but
should be applied tothe soil immedi-
itely around the stalks, but without
coming in actual contact with them.

Practical men are hvybridizing and
planting the seeds of blackberries,
and many assert that they have su-
perior fruit from the process. The
blackberry.is emphatically the puor>
man's fruit. The bushes grow where
nothing else will grow ; but be-cause
the fruit is common it is not to hoe de-'
spisedl. It is healthy and delicious
in its growing stare. and how much
More delicious when cullivated in
rich soil, those only who have tried
it can appreciate. "IThe staining of

,','> tion to the fruit as a desert fruit,
*. but if the white varieties are culti-
' vated this objection will vanish.
.' We have never seen white black
birds, hut we have now in cultiva-
tion white blackberries. From the
medicinal qualities known to be pos-
I messed by the blackberry, it is not
*^ ^only becoming a popular fruit for
the desert but its juices are being
extracted forjams, jellies and wines.
We feel that we cannot do our rea-

Upon the many wonderful events and
imperishable monuments that loom up
in the track already trod by the foot-
steps of human history, none. perhaps,
claim, and command the attention of
the Christian observer, more than the
little town of Elstow, near Bradford,
England. It is not a monument of pol-
ished marble or a brazen statue, with
inser:ptions in honor of kings and
mighty conquerors. It is simply a
monument of the mercy ofGoJ, taking
a mighty genius from the lanes and by-
ways of degradation and wickedness,
and sanctifying it to Hi,4 own glory, as
an eternal light to his militant Church
In this century Cromwell convulsed
the civilized world-hung a king in
his own kingdom. quietly seated him-
self on tho empty throne, and ruled the
einpi-re His son fell lik, a withered
si-vkly-plant. Charles ascended the
throne of his ancestors, and a single
page of history is all that remains of
them. But the Tinker of Elstow still

words that burn." and his name is like
Shouse-hold God, to be found and lov-
e in every cottage, farmhouse, man-
on or pa-le where there is a heart to
eel, or a soul to appreciate the sub-
lIme march of a pilgrim from earth to
glory. Other great and good men
have lived, labored and died, and their-
works come down to us, like the model
of a Greek ship or a Roman galley.

hundredyears. --

Departed this iife on the 13th inst.,
in the town of O)cala, East Florida. Mrs.
wife of D. B' AINA.RD VENNINGO, of
Charleston, Suutli Carolina. in, the 2d
year of her age. She hias left tou mourn
her early decease, a devoted mother,
husband, child, and large circle of
relatives and friends tuiouth Carolina
This interesting lady with her hus-
band, child and mother, arrived in this
State, in November last,; for many
months she had been suffering wih
Pulmonary Consumption, and sought
our shores with the hope that a more
Southern climate might favor her res-
toration to health: hbut the inscrutable
decree was otherwise her health con-
tinued to decline, and after long and
painful sBffering she calmly resigned
her spirit to God who gave it. Mrs.
Venaing was a member of the Baptist
Church, in Beaufort South Carolina,
having been baptised by the Rev.
Robt. Fuller, their pastor. She was
naturally of a joyous disposition, her
religiouscharacter corresponded with it
-with her Godliness was no gloomy
principle ; she was a cheerful chris-
tian during her illness her mind be-
came entirely exorcised in reference
to her spiritual state ; she often solicit-
ed, and derived great consolation in
the prayers of her christian friends and
left the cheering evidence that Jeans
had been to her wisdom righteousness,
sanctifieatiou and complete redemption.
She closed her brief career in a land of
strangers, but to her and her devoted
mother it was truly a land of unsur-
passed kindness, sympathy and love.
While memory lasts the hearts of her
relatives who accompanied her to Flori-
da, will cherish for the ladies and other
friends of Ocala, the warmest friend-
ship and sincerest gratitude.
"To Zions peaceful courts above,
In taith triumphant may we soar;
Embracing in the arms of love
The friends not lost-but gone be.foire."
