stances recorded in Gen. 12: 7-9. And similar
to this was the conduct of Joshua, who acted
upon the noble resolution, "Whatever other

THE FIRST OFFER.
Not long since as a clergymail was visiting
ne of his parishioner, who was a man of busi-
ess, the following conversation substantially
ceurred.
"It is true," said the merchant, "I am not
atisfied with my present condition. I am slot
of a settled mind in religion,' as you express.
till I am not utterly hopeless. I mby yet en-
er the vineyard even at the eleventh hour."
"Ah! your allusionis to the Saviour's para.
le of the loitering laborers who wrought one
our at the end of the day. But' you have
overlooked the fact that these men -i-re* ple 2
he first offer,
"Is that so /"
"Certainly. They said to the Lord of the
ineyard, 'No man hath hired us.' They web
omed his first oflr immediately."
"True; I had not thought of that before.-
utthenthe thief on the cross, even while dying
as saved."
"Yes; but it is likely that even he had never
ejected an offer of salvation as preached by
hrist and his Apostles. Like Barabbas, he
ad been a robber by proleasion. Intheresorth
o whichhe had been acenstomed, the Gospe.
ad never been preached. Is there not some
eason to believe that he too accepted the first
ffer?"
"Why, you seem desirous to (uench my last

In the relationsof Jesse with women, they
eem irresistably-attracted toward him, with

THE PUBLISHING H#USE.
Mr. Editor: I am glad to see the Advocate in
circulation. I wish as much could be said for
Nashville. But as yet our entire establishment,
with the exception of a few upper rooms, is in
the hands of the military. This, however, has
no sort of connection in any way with thdibivil
'suit for confiscation which was illed against us
in 1862. The legal proceedings, orders, &0,
suppose the property to be and remain in my
possession pending the auxt. This suit will in
all likelihood be determined about the first
week in November; and we strongly hope the
military custody of the property will terminate
before that time.
But my principal object in writing now, is to
call the attention of the preachers and others
to the fact, that we have still on hand a large
stock of books of our general estalogue, which
ought to be sold immediately. Orders will be
filed now at muchlo2oer rates than a few months
hence. Those who can do so will save largely
by ordering at once. Terms 4ash, invariably. *
Yours very truly,

As Amicts M. E. Quacu m Macow.-The
notice of our Montgomery correspondent of the
adhesion of the Methodist colored church in
that city to the African H. E. Church, reminds
us to state a fact, that but for wantof room two
weeks since would have then been stated.
The Rev. J. W. Burke for a long time has had
the care of the colored charge in Macon; buta
Missionary of the African K. E. Church has
recently visited them, and they have electedto
unite with that body. The change was made
in the utmost kindness of feeling, and cordially
fraternal relations subsist still between the new
denomination and their former pastor and
brethren. We believe this policy best for the
colored people, if they will not cheerfully con-
tinue in their original church relations. Our
correspondent reflects, we think, the calmly
Matured opinion of a who have considered,
with all the facts of the case before them, the
Illitre interests Of Christianity in the South,
and we hope that where these brethren will
leave us for union with those of their own color,
we should part with them in kindness, and do
all we can hereafGer to promote their spiritual
interests,

LETTERS FROM UNDER A LAMP.
NUMBER FIVE.
Dear Friend M.,-Since my last letter to you,
my lamp is not the only luminary that to sa
gone out. Alas, alad The interjection of sor
row tells edl nd othMr war in a pees

into the best fellowship of the world and seals
us as born to the intercourse of a no 1.1<==..1 ci, cr.
Thanks for this, and thanks for anything that
raises the faintest flush o: cheerfulness in these
troubled days.
And now that my lamp is rekindled, is there
no sweet and silent suggestiveness in the re-.
turaiing softness of its light, in the clear guide
ance it gives my pen, and in the genial anima-
tion that has stolen unawares into my sensibili



gli down into the feelings and take them
quickly captive. I admire her art. What a
charming sovereign is she, if let alone I ten
she makes me happy without my knowing it.
I am her deblocato night for the moral of my
Iamp, in which is now pictured before me there-
newing of other lights in these darkened times.
Our land, our homes, our sanctuaries, are
brightening, and, despiteppf our facility in hug-
ging sorrow to our bosoms, hope is inaugurating
a new dispensation of beatitudes for our expe**
rience. What an involuntary creature is Hope?
I have never loved her as much as I do Lo-night.
The latk revolution has sadly disappointed
us. Itprovedadversetoourezzieetations. But
I cannobthink that it will prove adverse to our
welfare. I.cannot think so, when I recall his-
tory, when I remember the maxims of philoso**
phy, and, above all, when I meditate on Chris-
tiaq truth. If I were writing as a man of the
world, possibly it might be abown, that fortune
is benevolent even in her caprice, that see is
classically bandaged over the eyes for us and
not for herself, and that amid all her uncertain-
ties, she certain to come out exactly right in
the end. Looking, however, at this sie ject in
J.1xe light of religion, I dare not come to any
other conclusion than that the results of our
late struggle will be immenselfr serviceable to
our interests And through them, to the world.
So much honest purpo., e., n u..L earnest ef-
fort, so mudx heroic u>r-og and pati-r tar dur-
ing, so much prayer andsacrificeas we evinced,
-1 cannot be septic enough to imagine for
&D inst&DE that Buckl sentilBOuts and REDIS &DG
endeavors have silessly and mournfully per-
ished. God has been pleased to defeat our
plans. Btit He has substitiated'his owni plan
for ours and thereby given us the best evi-
dence of His concern for our well-being. Nor
is the case a rare ofte. It is precisely the same
thizig that has often happened, and if it had
not happened, the world woilid have been un-
inhabitable song ago. All our moderncivilisaw
tion hus grown up in this way and it will'grow
to perfection in no other way. Luther started

To this case the Bishop refers in his famous
pastoral. I have referred to it because it had
an immediate connection with the courseto be
pugued by the "forty associates." The line of
conduct marked out isto bring the question at
issue between the Bishop and his clergy to a
head. It is this: The Rector selected has
agreed upon an exchange of pulpitson theBab-
bath with the same Baptistminister-just such
an exchange as would be made with the Com
gregistionalistPresbyterian orDutth Reformed'
Ib is to be made on Sabbath morning. The
Episcopal minister is to go into the Biptist
Church without his prayer book and ce.n.Tect
the services in the usual way. The P. priet i} 10
go into the Episcopal Church and cor..I.iet (be
services according to that ritual. All the par
ties have their eyes open. They know what
they are about. They intend the change to be
of such a character as to admit of but one in-
terpretation. If the Bishop wants to lay his
hand on them they intend be shall know where
they are. In the meantime the controversy is
petting slightly personal. Tbe church party in

came ing and ten time passed as the morning
meal had done. After ten there was no move-
ment, as agnal, tOWArd the hat rack. William
stood up beside the tabl&, lingering and chat-
tin lintil Lizzle also rose. She led him to the
li t warm parlors, in their pretty glowoftaste-
arran ement, and drew him down on the
sofa besi e her. He felt as if he was courting
over again, as he watched her fingers busy with
some fancy needlework, and listened to the
cheerful. voice he had loved so dearly two years
before.
"What are yori making, Lizzie ?"
"A pair of slippers. Don't you remember how
much you admired the pair I weiked for you

them. I used to put my feet on the federal
and dream of blue eyes and bright curls, and
wished time would move faster to the dayrhen

Lizzle's face anddened for a moment as she
thought of the last two years, and how little
music she had madeforkis loving heart, gradu-
ally weaning it from its allegiance, and then
she said: *
"I wonder if you love music as muph as you

said Lissie, pouting,
"But you always say you are out of practice
when I ask you."
"I had the piano tuned this morning. Now
opn it, and we will #ee how it sounds."
Wilham obeyed joyfully, and, tossing aside
her sewing,. Lizzie took the piano stool. She
hadea very aweet voloe, not powerful but most
musteal, and was a very fair performer on the
piano*
"Ballads, Lizzie ?"
"Oh! yes, I know you dialke opera music in
a parlor."
One song after another, with a nocturne, or
lively Instrumental pzece occasionally, between
them, filled up another hour pleasantly.
The litt-e mantel clock struck eleven!
"Eleven! I thought it was about nine, I
oug to apologize, Lizzie, as I used to do, for
staying so long; and I can truly say, as 1 did
then, that the time has passed so pleasantly I
can scarcely believe it so late."
The piano was closed, Lizzle's work put in
. the basket, and William was ready to go up
I stairs; but, glancing beek, he saw his little wife
i near the fire-place, her hands clasped, her head
bent, and large tears falling from her eyes. He
I was beside her in an instant.

Merton Smith did have his own way. He was
bright and beautiful, and though sometimes
mischiev6ks and wilful, he was so much the pet
and pride of his parents and sisters, that he re.
ceivedmore caressea than t&bukes. His father
and mother were neither of them pious, and
the former- seldom attended divine worship,
ye both of them felt shocked aird mortified,
when they found that Merton had begun to use
profaneandribald language. the mother en-
treated, and the father commanded him to give
up so foolish and disgraceful a habit; but their
efforts were alike fruitless. So he grew to open-
ing manhood a swearer and blasphemy.
It happened oneaultry day its August, that,
with two or three young companions, Merton

was more profitne than usual; and talked so
