and think of the resurrection.-Bishop Horne.

This is what Christian patriots of the Cotifed-
erate States must now practice: It is a noble
traitofcharacter, whether in an individual man
orin a whole people. It is a calin constoney of
mind, which bears up grandly inder every form
and degree of suffering with resolute and un-
broken spirit, and yet with ready submission to .
the will of God. It is the very opposite of that
complaining silirit which finds fault with every-
thing done by our authorities civil and military;
which closures unjustly and unfairly all their
movements; which exaggerates all their ill
successes; and which in fine grumbles all the
time and upon every occasion.
The Scriptures abound with exhortations to
this excellent grace. They declare that to the
believer tribulation worketh patience, and
patience experienced experience hope. The
tried believer, who has passed through many
tribulations, and has thus learned lessons of
experience and attained to solid hope, belongs
to a higher class in the school of Christ than
the young neophyte who has never worn.the
yoke. It is so with a patriot, and it is so with a
patriotic people. Havingaufferedin the country's
causp, the flame of their patriotism burns more
purely as well as brightly. Sweet indeed are
the uses of adversity. In our patience then let
us possess our soula. The patient iti spirit (says
the wise mim) is.better than the proud in spirit.
Our enemies we know are very much uplifted in
mind. They are filled with self-confidezice. Well
will itbe for us if, on the contrary, we are truly
a humbled. It is a niuch safer state we are in, if,
tried and troubled, we feel.out weakness, arid
yet calmly and confidently go on in the path of
our duty, leaving the issue to Him who alone
rules amongst the nations.
Judging from our own experience we suppose
our headers find this war one of the severest and
bitterest trial of their lives. It has already
cost, and it doubtless will-jret cost nially of us
very dear in the loss of those we loves our own
lives. And apart from the terribleactualcalami-
ties which it brings upon us, there is a general
aspect in which it is exceedingly trying to our
patience. We have all had our personal trial,
and they have been .oftentimes hard to bear,
but they have for the most part been of brief
duration. In the case of many of them death
has closed the account, and. we have submitted
to the will of God in quietness, and base found
consolation m our bereavement. But this war
is a long, Jong agony of suspense and anzlous
waiting. Just so much the more then is the
discipline of it valuable to us. We are learmag
lessons by it which we could acquire in no other
school. And oh I the object which is at stake,
and for which we are suffering and struggling!

Recently a religious paper was handed to me,
in which I saw a piece headed, Salvation." I
had a strong inclination to ascertain what the
author had to say about this all-important sub-
ject, "salvation." On examination, however, I
soon found that he had not the most thorough
knowledge of it, as he had placed somewhat of
an erroneous construction on the term. His

I receive numerous applications for directiqns
to make salt, from the earth of smoke house.
and nearly all the applicants have made on use-
cessful efforts for its produebion.
It is no easy matter to obtain pure salt--and
all others are nearly or quite useless as antisept-
ics-from the earth of smoke houses. The earth
is exceedingly complex in its composition. It
not only contains salt, but a numerous class of
compounds resulting frozil the decomposition of
blood and the soluble porticos of the meat that
exude fromit, by the action of the salt. Besides
these there are nitrates formed spontaneouslyin
the soil. Mostly howevernitrateof lime. There
is a putrescible matter present, which will man-
ifest itae"f in the moist salt by standing, and its
presence is readily detected by. its disgusting
odor. This will destroy the antiseptic power of
the salt nearly, if.not entirely. These must all
be gotrid of if the salt is to be used for the pre-
servation of meats or any organic substances.
By observing the following directions pure salt
will be obtained-as we speak from our own ex-
perience and not from theory. :
We will suppose that the clear ley, pot color-
less, is obtained by any convenient process of
leaching, only promising, that if the earth will
not "drip," it must be mixed with sand.
The ley is to be boiled down till small, shining
scales appear on the quiet surface of the liquor.
These scales are depressed in the centre, and are
really little four-sided hoppers, niade up of
minute crystals-(beautiful subjects for the mi-
The ley is now alittletoostrong. Addalittle
water and stop the boiling. To ten gallons of
this liquor, add is balf pint of quick lime made
into "milk of lime," that is water enough to
make it semi-fluid. The whole should now be
dipped into a suitable vessel, tub, barrel, or
tank, and allowed to settle. The cheinical ac-
tion of the lime it is unnecessary I should here
explain; it is sufficient to say that it partly
clarifies the liquor, and removes some materials
that would interfere witphthe production pike
salt. The kettle is cleaned out, and the clear
liquor returned. No sediment should be allowed
to be returned. The liquor must be clear like
wine, not muddy.
Theley is now to be boiled again when the
little hopper-like crystals will soon appear.
Crystals of salt now begin to form in the liquor,
and sink to the bottom, from which theymaybe
skimmed put by any convenient article as skim-
mer or dipper. As skimmed out they should
be placed on a board inclined over the edge of
the kettle so as to catch the drippings from the
salt. This salt will bb about the color of coffee
sugar; sprinkle it with clear water, and the
water will not only remove most of the coloring
matter but many of the impurities that adhere
to the salt. .
Dissolve the salb, thus obtained, in twice its
weight of pure clear water, and boil it downand
skim it out as before, and you will have pure
white salt.
If crystals of salt, or "rock ealb" are desired,
remove the fire from the settle, at any time
after the salt commences to form, audwlaen cold
a crop of crystals will be formed on the sides
and bottom of the kettle. Repentathe heating
and cooling, and successive crops are obtained,
or slowevaporationwillproducethebameresult.
The evaporation shouk1 not be pushed too far,
else the nitrates and other-salts will crystallize
with the salt; and the ulmitx and humin com-
pounds will adhere more tenaciously.
All the salt cannothe obtamed without adopt-
ing means of separating these salts., This is
worth the trouble, asseveralpoupdsof mitremay
beobtainedfrom each smoke-house, and our
Government needs the nitre for the manufacture
of gunpowder, it being theonlyargument which
is able to convince our enemies that webavesny
rights at all. This is the "argumentum ad
hominem." .
When the salt becomes very dark and but
little of it is formed, let potash ley (may be ob-
tained by leaching ashes) be added till it pro-
duces no turbidness. This potash converts the
nitrates into nitre. Let all the liquor be re-
moved from the kettle to the tub or vessel in
which it was settled after the lime was added.
Let the kettle be cleaned and the clear liquor
be returned to it. Boil it down till crystals be-
gin to form. If salt is formed it may be con-
tinued till the quantity is small. Now remove
the liquor from the fire and cover it up closely,
so that no evaporation can take place, and as it
becomes cold the crystals of nitre will form.
The reason of this manipulation is that sale is
very little more soluble in hot than in cold
water, hence if you stop the escape of water you
arrest e deposition of salt; on the contrary,
nitre is fourteen times more soluble in hot than
in cold water, hence by cooling alone we get
mtre in crystals, salt by evaporation. This pro*
cess may be repeated till very little isileft of any
value. A few small. sticks may be put in the
cooling liquor, and if any salt crystallizes it will
adhere to the sticks in culsical crystala-; whilt
the nitre will mostly adhere to the sides and

sodrcely ever goes beyond fifty or sixty poi*cent.
If my memory fails not this collection in the
Alabama Conference for the year 1860, before
the war, when times were flush, and provisions .
plentiful, was only sixty-three per cent. of drhat

will it be now ? Probably not more than fifty
percent. will be collected. Let us think of it a
moment. You give to a widow orasuperannus-

lated he would need a year ago; but in the
meantime the price of all supplies have doubled.
So it amounts to but one fourth. Ah I their shall

children, or to our aged fathers in the ministry

I ended last week a five weeks' tour of Camp-
meetings on this District. The first was at
Hebron, on thePineville circuit, embracing the
1st Sabbath in August. At this meeting there
were not many tent holders. The congregations
Saturday and Sunday wer6 large, and although
there was not much fruit visible; yet we believe
good was done. Good order was observed. Our
second Camp-meeting was at Rock Spring, on
the Linco1nton circuit. Here there are three

ing on the Charlotte circuit. Here there was a
fair representation of tent-holders. Nine or ten
were converted and twelve joined on probation.
The next week, Sulphur Sprikags Camp-meeting
came of. Here arrangements were discouragmg
in the beginning. Matters however improved-
congregations large on Saturday and Sunday-
very good order. The preaching of the word
seemed to be with power; fruits notsoimmedi'
ately visible. This meeting was in the bounds
of Shelby circuit. We broke up at the Camp-
ground Monday, abd commenced at night at
Shelby, four miles distant. When I left Shelby
there had been five conversions, and six persons
had joined on probation. 'The meeting was

additions to the Church, within our bounds.-
At three of the above Camp-meetings in addi-
tion to our regulars, we had the services of Rev.

to its ultimate triumph. Statesmen, conqueroke,

netBand couicils, to exercise its influence in all
the great movements of the mee, it is only
doing what its relation to all other associations
or organized bodies of men give it.the right to
do. They, however exalted or pretentious they
may be, in the order of Providence and by their
relation to the Sovereign Ruler, exist only for its
eake. So long as rulers or nations servy the
purposes for which Christ established His Church,
they live or flourish-when they do so no lon-
ger, they cease to be.
It is pitiable to see those who enjoy the high
distinction of being related to Christ through
Ris Church succumbing to the arrogant pretqn-
sions of those small men who hold that the State
should.yield nothing to the Church. These
independent statesmen tell us that the State
has nothing to do with questions of morality-
that the Church has no rightto dictate from her
code to the legislators of a country, or to demand
that her stringent principles of action should
regulate the public conscience.
They have yet to learn that the day is coming
when all that they have erectedof constitutions,
or kingdoms, or repubhcs will have passed away
-their policies and achievements only to be
remembered as they have helped or hindered
the Church, upon which they now look down;
while it will have taken its place as chief of
those celestial powers by which the machinery
of God's universal government ismoved-endur-
ing forever as the kingdom of God, exalted above
all other rule as.the chief minister of the Eter-
nal King, Jesus Christ, its Head. They have
yet to learn, that the Body, whose principles
have an endurance that shall raise it to such
high honor could give such laws to the nation,
and infuse suchoindestru ible e emez

people the surest guarantee of stability and

Pa em,'They forget ithatov t u n
well as over the individual," and that they only
wholearnthis great lesson can "endure forever."
They are still more to be pitied, who permit
the false elsims of society, the conventional
usages of a heartless and pleasure-seeking world ,
so far to corrupt them, that they will obey they
dictates, when they should maintain unimpaired
their fealty to the Church.
They are governed by these, rather than by
the law of the Church. Afraid of the taunts of
men, or unable to stem the current of fashion,
they let the world give law to them-though
they are members of that Body which, of right,
should give law to the world. They are follow
ers where they should be leaders-they permit
those to influence them to evil, or derive from
them a low standard of morals, whom they
should not consort with, if they cannot influence
their general conduct.
There is no such dignity conferred by men, as
that which one derives from being a living
member of Christ's Church-no such honor as
b e ith that Body of faithful labeling on w orers,
who are in vital union with the Lord Jesus
Christ. To belong to a family of high rank is
isot to be so much esteemed as being of the
household of God-to hold vast possessions in a
happy country is not of so much worth as to be
an heir of Heaven-to be exalted among men
does not make one equal to him whois honored
of God. We may loy8 our families and our
homes-we should love the Church more; we
may honor the land of our birth and its institu-
tions-we should hold the Church in higher
respect; we may, in the emergency of an hour,
die for the defence of our country---we should
yield to the Church the tribute of an entire life
of self sacrificing and unremitted labor. God
has alloired no institution among men, that has
claims upon us in any degree approaching those
he has authorized the Church to make. It may
demand our family, our money, our time, our.
selves. It may layits hand upon every fibre of
Our life, every element of our character, every
energy of our nature, and press them into its
service in carrying out the great scheme of re-
demption.It can allownorivalinouraffections-
whether ithe self, or family, or wealth, or honor,
or power-whether it be the enthroned idol
within, or the organized antagonist toits supr*
anacy without.
It were well, if Christian professors could
grasp this idea-could feel the supreme dignity
to which the body of believers is raised by hav-
ing Christ for their Head-by holding this rela.
tion to Him, so much higher than any.held by
all the other members of his widely extended
kingdom. It would impart consistency to their
] fideliives, ty in service, courage in danger'
victory in conflict, zeal in labor, -endurance in
trial, and faith in all things. li would break
the spell which the world with its false philoso.

them, and prepare them fully for that severest
conflict which we believe is fast approaching

It would make every Christian a he d
