FRAGMENTS FROM SHERLOCK.
- 1. The great end'of religion is future happi-
ness; and consequently the best religion is that

wh2.elT 11 m at surely direct ust to eternalilife
God and ourselves; right conceptions of his holi-
ness and purity, and of the nature of divine
worship; it has taught us a religion, in the
practice of which our present ease and comfort.
and our hopes of future happiness and glory
consist; it has rooted out idolatry and superati-
tion, and, by instructing us in the nature of God,
and discovering to us His unity, His omnipres
ence alla infinite knowledge, it has furnished
us even with principles of reask, by which we
reject and condemn the rites and ceremonies of
heathenism and idolairy, and discover wherein
the beauty and holiness of divine worship con-
sist.
3. Ifad the unbelievers of this age heard St*
Peter's piteous complaint, Lord, to whom shall
we go?' they would have bid him go to himself,
and consult his own reason, and there he should
find all that was worth finding in religion.
4. We are but acting over again the same part
that our ancestors acted before us; wisdom and
prudence, and cunnmg, are now what they
formerly were. Nor can this age show human
nature in any one character exalted beyond
the examples which antiquity has left us.
Since then -in nothing else we are grown wis r
than theheathenworld, what probability is there
thatwo should.have grown wiser in religion, if
we had .been left, as they were, to mere reason
and nature? To this day there is no alteration n
for the better, except only in the countries
p
where the gospel has been preached. t
5. Where the gospel prevails, nature is re-
o
stored; and reason, delivered from bondage by s
grace, sees and approves what is holy, just, and
pure.
6. When opee nature leaves her faithful guide,
the gospel of Christ, it will be as unable to sup- I
port itself against error and superstition, as it m
was to deliver itself from them, and will by de-
p
grees fall back into its original blindnessand
corruption,
7. Under the gospel dispensation we have the t
immutable word of God for the support of our h
faith and hope. We know in whom we have s
believed; in Him, who can neither deceive, nor b
be deceived; and, poor as our services are, we
have His word for it, that our labor of love shall
not be forgotten. fo
8. Religion is founded in the .principles of t
reason and nature; and, without supposing this e
foundation, it would be as rational an not to
w
preach to horses as to men. /

It is due to the dead, and may benefit the living,
that one who has known and loved him from
boyhood, should place on record an outline of his
noble character,
At an early age, perhaps when fourteen or fif.
teen years old, Col. Smith united with the Meth-
othst Church in Maeon, where his membership
remained till his death. At the age of sixteen,
Agentered the Sophomore Class in Oglethorpe
University, at which Institution he graduated in
the Class of 1843. His student life was marked
with respectable attainments in scholarship-
genial and courteous intercourse with his associ-
ates, and a wide and varied culture in general
literature. Many a fragrant hour he spent, after
the demands of the recitation room had been
met, with a friend, in discussing the books re-
cently read, or, in a social, easy way, talking of
the many themes which spring up in the path.
way of the lover of letters. These were, indeed,
"ambrosial nights" to which, in after years he
loved to recur. It was a favorite quotation with
him, when referring to this period of his life in
conversation with the friend with whom he had
enjoyed those hours of social and intellectual
comdmning:

He uniformly exhibited af are purity and deli.
cacy of conversation and.conduct. The subtty
anecdote, the coarsejest, so common in the un-
restrained intercourse of young men with each
e*her, never sullied his life. Having won the
esteem of his fellow-students and the Faculty;
having awakened whigh anticipations that his
would be a bright and useful fixture; having
declined to contend for the honor of his class
because of the wrong feelings which such a con-
test tends to excite; having, at graduating, de.
slivered a brilliant address, which, to this day,
though delivered nineteen years ago, is remem.
bered by some who heard it, he left his Alma
Mater for the busy world.
In due season he was admitted to the Bar.
His professional career was characterized by
faithfulness, ability and piety. When employed
iss criminal cases, he made it a constant practice
to seek to lead his clients to Christ. He visited
them in prison, not only to talk with them about
the impending trial, but to tell them of Jesus
and the trial of the Great Day. He was abund-

he regularly went to the jail of his county, as a
minister to thesoulsof those who might be con.
Sned there-white and black. He labored in t
Babbath Schools and prayer meetings for the
destitute, besides being regular and diligentas a
class leader, superintendent or teacher in the
Church Babbath School, and ofHee bearer in the
Church of his choice,
A Methodist from conviction he had broad,
warm sympathies for all who love the Lord. He
loved to unite with members of other churches
in doing the work ofThe Master. A more truly
Catholicapiritnever adornedtheChurchof Jesus.
In his intercourse with his friends and ac.
quaintances, he sought opportunity, by letter
and in conversation, to urge the claims of per.
sonalreligion. Many are powlivingwhombe has

No man was more severe upon his own faults,
or more charitable towards those was an ardent patriot as well as Christian.
When the war broke out he was Captain of the
"Maeon Volunteers." He was ordered to Nor-
folk with his company-they having promptly
tendered their services-in the vicinity of which
place they remained about year, doitzg effective
servicemen aiding to protect the public propertY
there, and the place itself, from the enemy.
When the new Regiments were formed early in
the Spring, he was elected Colonelof the 44th
Ga. Regiment. With the same zeal and dili-
gence which he exhibited as Captain, he entered
upon the more onerous duties of his new position*,
Night and day he was busyendeavoring to bring
the regiment to the highest point of excellence
both as soldiers and as men. His unwearied
labor and exposure brought on disease, from
which he suffered for twomonthebeforehisdeath*
The fierce ordeal of the soldier's life did not
cause his religion to go out in darkness. Wri-
ting to a friend, a few weeks since, he said-
"duringmy recent afHietions I have triedtopray
more than ever. Night before last, and last
night, I passed thost of the time in prayer. My
illness kept me awake, but I found relief in call-
ing on the name of the Lord."
At two o'clock, on the morning of Thursday,
the 26th of June, he received orders for his reg-
iment, then near Richmond, to march towards
Ellyson's Mills, preparatory to attacking the
enemy's battery there. Feebleas he was, unable
to mount his horse without assistance, he moved
forward with his regiment, to which he had al-
ready become strongly attached. When they
made the terrific charge upon the battery later
in the day, he gallantly led them on foot. Du-
ring the charge he was wounded inthreeplaces,
and was finally borne from the field. Two days
afterwards, in the thirty-eighth year of his age,
from the effects of his wounds and disease, he
died. His freed spirit, sped its way to "the
shining shore." The nation, the Church, the
fatitily, loving friends, the suffering, the desti-
tote, the outcast, the prisoner, are bereaved.
His work is done. History will enter his name
on the roll of her Christian heroes. Being dead
he yet speaketh. Whoever reads this brief
tribute of affection to his memory-follow him
as he followed Christ* 4

personality and the offices bf the Holy Spirit to
receive the full benefit of his indwelling in the

of his work asComforter, of which all Christiant
may avail themselves:
"The Lord's people need a comforter ; for O

What with sin within them, the world without
them, and Satan constantly trying to distress
and east them down, they have enough to dis-
hearten them. Then there are the cares of
business, the trials of the family, the oppression
of the great, the suffering of the poor, and the
state of the Cliurchall combining to fill them
with grief and sorrow. Under these circum-

Holy Spirit has condescended to assume the
office of Comforter. He is entrusted with all the
fullnets of JeSUS; he knows all the thoughts of
the Father; he has examined all the stores of
grace, and in perfectly acquainted with all the
riches of glory; and with these he is to comfort
the Lord's people. He knows every saint and
every circumstance. He knows every foe and
every temptation. He can gain access to the
heart, and he can impart the comfort we re-

in us confidence in God. He begets lively hopes
of glory. He applies his promises. Hesprinkles

teaches our hands to war and our fingers to
