"But still," said the young one, "I would
gladly know the reason ofthismutualslaughter.
I could never kill what I would not est."
"My child," said the mother, "when I was
young I used to visit an old vulture on the
Carpathian Rocks. He had fed, year after
year. on the entrails of men. He said, that as
the boughs ofan oak are dashed together by the
storm, that swine may fasten on the talks
scorns, so men are, by some unaccountable
power, driven one against the other, till they
lose their motion, that vultures may be fed.
And those that hover round them, pretend that

A correspondent of the Southern Presbyterian,
recently received .the following facts from the
venerable Dr. Bachman, of Charleston.
After the Secessionville fight it appears the
Dr. found in his usual rounds at the hospitals
some of the enemy's, wounded mixed up with
our own suffering men, and sought and obtained
the removal of these strangers, so that our boys
might be by themselves. The wounded Yan-
kees, eight in number, sent froin their new
quarters a request for him to his visit.
He complied with the request of course. On
entering the room he inquired if there were any
Germans there, and found one man who was
overjoyed to meet a Lutheran clergyman, and
requested the sacrament, as he expected to die
that night, Our friend told him that it was
necessary that he should first understand wheth-
er or not he was prepared to participate in those
sacred emblems; and a conversation ensued in
the German language which is worthy of the
attention of your readers, as it sheds light on
the character of the army that has invaded our
Dr. B.-What made you enlist in this war ?
PRISONER.-I was cutting wood, with the snow
one foot deep, at twenty-five cents per day;
lived in a log hut, and had my four children
scattered amongst strangers to earn their own
bread, and so I enlisted because I got better
wages and a bounty.
Dr. B.-Eut what else were you to get besides *
the bounty and your wages ?
P.-We were each to get a farm with a house
on it,
Dr. B.-But where were you all to find farms ?
P.-Oh, the farms of the secessionists were
to be taken from them and given to us.
.,Dr. B.-But do you think it a right thing
that you should come here to dispossess these
people of their property ?
P.-Oh, that was the affair of the government.
They were to give us the forms.
Dr. B.-But would you think it right for
strangers to go into your native countryof Wur-
temberg and take possession of the farms of the
people there ?
P.-Well, I had not thought of it in that light
Dr. B.-Well, what have you secured since
you came on our coast ?
P,-A good deal of plunder.
Dr. B.-Row ? Did you break open the peo-
ple's houses ?
P.-The negroes broke them open, and then
we helped ourselves out of the drawers.
Dr. B.-What did you get for yourself ?
P.-I got clothes enough to last my children
for several years.
Dr. B.-Any spoons ?
P.-No large ones, but several ame)1 allver
spoons, besides knives and forks.
Dr. B.-Had you no knives and forks at
home ?

na d oNo, om ildren have to eat with forks

Dr. B.-But what were you to get after the
fight at Secessionville ?
P.-Oh, we were to get all Charleston for our.
Dr. B.-But what if the people there would
not give it up to you ?
P.-Oh then we should have killed them all.
Dr. B.-Now, do you think after all that you
have told me that you are a fit man to receive
the sacrament ? I cannot give the Lord's sup-
per to 4 man -that has' hired himself out for
money to come down to this country to kill and
rob people.
P.-But what shall I do ? I am going to die
and must have the sacrament.
Dr. B.-Well, on must o to a higher Power
than mine to help you. I can do nothing for
such a person.
P.-Are there no other thinisters of your
Church here ?
Dr. B.-Yes, four others, but no one of them
would give the sacrament to such a man as you
describe yourself to be.
P.-But what then will become of me, for
I shall die to-night ?
Dr. B.-If you.die without repenting of these
sins you confess, you must go to hell, that ip
what will become of you.
Addressing the whole company then in Eng.
lish, Dr. B. told them he thought it right to
explain to them, as he had come at their re-
quest, that he has two sons in the Confederate
army, and that he viewed them as unrighteous
invaders-but would pray for them if they still
desired it after this statement. They begged
him to proceed, and he did so.
No coinment is necessary from me upon this
narrative. It speaks for itself.

mittance into the great camp above,
You have identified yourselves with the South-
ern cause; your cheeks flush with joy and pride,
as you read of Southern triumphs, as you hear
the names of the gallant leaders'of the South;
have you made the cause of Chrish your cause,
and does your heart thrill at Zion's success and
with love for its great captain ?
Two armies are in the field-they speak the
same language-frequently they wear the same
uniform and the same badge. What then is to
designate them ? It is the Countersign, breathed
in a whisper only, by the officer as he places the
sentinel on his lonely post.
And so, spiritually, there are two armies in the
field. On the one side the dark legions of sin
and Satan, on the other the army of the Lord
of Hosts. To outward appearance, they are the
same, but the great Captain, Jesushas breathed

And to you, who have this watch-word, let me
add a word of exhortation. When sin and Satan
assault you, to drive you from your duty, endure
hardship like a good soldier, stand firm on your
post until your Captain shall come to relieve
you, for so strong and so wise is Ke that so long
as you stand firm, trusting in Him, no force that
the enemy shall be able to bring against you

You areperhapsaurroundedby circumstances
unfriendly to your growth in grace, but as if to
show that nothing is too hard for the Lord, some
of the brightest examples of the power of Divine
grace have been raised up on the battle-field.
The lives of Gardiner, of Haveloek, of Vicars,

We last week urged upon our readers the
pressing necessity of pushing out from home
and into the ranks of the army every man upon
whom the country has a claim as one of its de.
fenders. We see no reason yet to change opin-
ion, that the North will now make a most des-
perate effort to take Richmond, unless we can
furnish men enough to produces diversion. In
either case, all our energies are now needed. If
we put them forth now with all our might, we

But we must do something more than send
cur men to war. We must acknowledge God's
hand in our past successes, we must accord to
Ri(n praise for our victories, and we must con-
tinue in constant and humble supplication for
His favor upon our armour leaders, our rulers.
A few months back and the houses of prayer
were crowded with suppliants, asking that God
would grant us His fisror, and deliver our coun-
try from its invaders. How humble were w
how importunate our prayers 1 But that was
in the dark anya of our history. A black cloud
overspread all our sky. We saw light no where,
except in the promises of God. Day has now
dawned, and our hopes take a brighter hue, and
we are greatly tempted to think that all is well,
and to intermit prayer-at least to pray with
less earnest entreaty. Whatis this but a forget-
fulitess of God, and a trust in our own
strength? And, what if He should forget us,
and leave na to ourselves ? Then, indeed, will
the night again settle upon our prospects, and
the darkness be more terrible than ever< We
