a little nearer to the nerves; and then as heat,
thirst, and fever rack the body, another gentle
turn, and another age of torture; and then one
more advance of the spikes toward the vitals,
till death comes on, and then the maiden un-
folding her arms, drops her victim through a
trap door, dean, down, down into unknown
depths. We drop a pebble, and hear the faint
splash of waters far beneath."
Under the shadow of our churches, in Protes
tant lands, there is everywhere this iron maiden
disguised in beautiful robes, crowned with flow-
ers, and attended with bewitehing music. Her
name is Pleaszue. So gently does the demon
that destroys, turn the mechanism of death upon
the victim, that this attractive maiden embraces
the debauchee, the inebriate, the gambler, the
worldling of whatever dominant human passion,
with gradual ruin, infusing from every poisoned
point of contact the delirious delight ofsin; and
he laughs, or smilesor sings, while the iron en-
ters his soul. On every hand, we see the signals
of the hastening death upon the faces of young
and old. Each moment from the maiden'sarms
her vietials drop into the abyss where billows
have no shole, and beneath which there is no
bottom
The "plash" of the fall is not heard in time

ooptebbeble from a humdan hand was ever thrown
Boware, devatee of the world, lest the fascina-
ting maiden whose master spirit "goeth about as
a roaring lion, seeking whorn he may devour,"
but whose voice is muffled to your ear, pierce
you with her concealed and delusive instruments
of death, until you awaken in the swift descent
to the depths of woo. In the arms of Christ alone
can you escape this doom -American Alesses

The reports reaching your Committee from
the
WESLEYAN FEMALE COLLEGE,
are cheering. And we may be permitted to say
that, under the Presidency of Dr. Juo. M. Bon-
nell, we could not expect them to be otherwise.
By a well arranged curriculum, faithful instrue-
tion and wise discipline, and by the exercise of
a proper but unsectarian rehgtous influence, the
Wesleyan has become, parexcellence, the College
of the State. In despite of monetary stringen-
ey, 131 pupils are in attendance. And we think
is should be recorded to the honor of the Facul-
ty that 30 of this number receive instruction
gratuitously. We submit the following:
Resolved: That the Wealayan FemalaCollege
at Macon (now the 30me property of the two
Georgin Conferences) deserves our highest com-
mendation, and the Conference earnestly appeals
to the public to sustain the College by a hberal
patronage . .
Your Committee Invite invite attention to
the
LAGRANGE FEMALE COLLEGE.
This Institution has had varied fortunes.-
The original building was destroyed by fire. A
praiseworthy attempt has been made to rebuild,
but the war interrupting, the structure is yet
unfinished. In view of its embarrassments and
for prudential reasons, the College was placed
the past year under the control of Rev. J. F
Cox, of the Baptist church, an experienced
teacher, aided by competent assistants from the
Methodist and other communions. It may now
be considered an Institution not denominational,
but entirely deservingof patronage.

What the Board should doisto adopt a regu.
lar graduated schedule of claims, based on lapse
of time, iftheiroperations are ever to work bene-
floially. The claims of the young cannot be
equal to the demands of an aged veteran of the
croes. A sure support in old age la the best
prop to our itinerant system, it gives repose to
the mind, reheves it from painful apprehensions
and nerves to protracted and persistent labors
in the heralds of the Cross. This is at-
tabablebut only on sound business principles.
If a preacher fails prematurely it is his misfor-
tune as in other pursuits, and if such have a
elaim at all, it must be proportioned to the time
of service. To found this claim on simple pov-
ery is an abourdity, for all the poor do not de-
mand annuities. By our past usages, a young
widow maybecomen pensioneron the Conference
for fifty years, whose husband may have spent
only three years in the itinerant work. On
what ground does such a claim rest? Was she
damaged by her marriage, and is the church to
pay indemnity for a half century when there may
be really an sonal benefit seeming from her
marriage? She is yet young and may provide
for herself as well as usual with other widows.
Why has she a right to aunuity more than other
pose young women of the Oburch?
The Board has never yet been able to settle
even with the enperannuates but ats heavy dis-
count, and perhaps never will, until the entire
plan of distribution be rectilled. Shall this dis-
graceful failure continue ? Does it result from
the parsimony of the church? Let us not so
