A Painful Scene and a Touching
In the Marora (III.) News of the 25th
of September is an account of the resign
nation of Elder J. V. Beekman as pastor
of a church in that village. For some
time past the reverened gentleman's hab
its have been s'ucb as to cause great grief
to his friends and bring reproach upon
the Church. At the close of the sermon
which was preached bj a neighboring
pastor, Elder Beekman made the follow
ing address, which we give as a warning
to all men, both young and old, to avoid
the tin and shame which have come upon
this man :
As a man I havo the highest conception
as to what the life and character of a min-
i 111 VI

hat be should lead a consistent and up
right life that can be looked to by
community as an example of purity
righteousness. Knowing that my
has not been snch in all respects, I desire
to tender to this church, for which I have
labored so long, my resignation.
You are aware that I refer to my sin of
intemperance. This may be my last op
portunity of addressing yon, and I want
to ask vou that vou will not charge this
teaches better things. Charge it all -to
ray own depravity and sinful nature. To
you who have not this habit it is strange
tli if I should thus yield to temptation. I
well remember the time wbeu I
thought it strauge that others drank and
ruined tliemseiVes with alconoi. l
The Winston Sentinel, of Oct. 21, thus
nails the lie the Radicals told about the
cost of the convention :
The convention will cost about $31,000,
which amount will be more than saved
in one year by reducing the pay of mem
bers of the h gislatnre and limiting the
length of the session. The Radicals
during the campaign declared
cost at least 8300,000, and
$500,000. But this is as near the truth
as they generally come.
The Charlotte Observer, of October 21,
wants the amendments property explain
ed to the people, and has this to say on
the subject :
"It is very easy to see tbat the falling iui lnat trjere are so many vouns

Editor Piedmont Press,
Dear Sir : I
have no doubt but that your readers
would be pleased to hear from this part
of the United States. I send you a letter
which you can publish if you like, lhe
Bank of California, which was suspended
some time since, will open again to-mor

row (tJct. 1,). Hie people nave great
deal of confidence in it, notwithstanding the
reports that have been circulated. To
show you the confidence that is placed iu
it I will copy the words of Senator
Sharon at a meeting of the Board of Trus
tees of tlie Bank of California yesierdy :
' Gentlemen, 1 have heretofore stated
that I am willing to bring half my for
tune into the Bank of California, I have
taken steps to make good that promise,
and as speedily as the necessary arrange
ments can be made I shall place $7,500,
000 to the credit of the concern.'
That promise, coming from a man
whose word is his bond, determines a
great future for the Bank of California. I
have no doubt but that the people of the
East think the late President, W. C. Rals
ton, was a swindler and that he committed
suicide, but such is not the .case in San
Francisco ; although several of the lead
ing papers have defamed his name. - (1
have no doubt but that they will be
punished for it.) He was well thought

tormatiou among the white people as to
the issues involved. Long before the
Democratic piess became aroused the
Radical press had thundered into the ears
of the masses a perfect cylone of misrep
resentation and falsehood, which the ma-
m a S .
jority never heard corrected, as it was
noticeable tbat not 0119 halt the white
voters turned out at the discussions. Our
party should not be caught napping till
too late another lime. We hope every
Democrat who feels an interest in the
success of his party will, now while the
subiect is fresh, take the trouble to see
that the amendments passed by the late
convention are thoroughly understood by
the whole people. All the amendments
are a popular character and only need to
be understood to bo adopted. Let every
intelligent, reading Democratic see that
his less intelligent ueighbors thoroughly
voice in warning and beg them to profit
byjniy example. You think now that
you are strong and in uo danger. I well
remember the time wbeu I believed the
same. Twelve vears a?o. when I reach

A number of applications have been
received to take passage iu the air ship,
and among them the application of Pro
fessor Wise, the aironaut, who with Pro
fessor Schroeder, is sanguine of the suc
cess of the enterprise and a safe voyage
across the Atlantic. Schroeder says he
has expended years of study and large
sums cf money upon the invention and its
final completion, and many prominent
scientists, and especially those of Europe,
believe that all that is expected ot the

in the moruing to enter upon the duties
of the day.
Profit, oh ! profit, by my example.
See what it has done for me. There was
a time when I stood as fair as any minis

and work with you iu the Sunday school,
aud will do all I can to alone for the great
sin I have committed.
God knows I do not wish to injure His
cause. Pray for me that I may yet over,

may.be able to conquer. Bat shall I go

sorrow because of my wrong doiug. Poor
woman, she has always suffered euough.
I married her a sweet and iunoceut girl.
She has been a patient aud fui'hful wife.
Again I ask that you will kindly remem

It is constructed of eighteen hundred yards

thousand four hundred and ninety-six
ropes will depend,' and hold the ship.
The pushing and pulling propellers to be
attached to the bow and steru of the ship
are ten ieet long and three aud a half
feet in height. These propellers will be
covered with canvas, as also the sides and
top of tbe ship.
The ship will be the balloon portion

About the 8ih of November he expects
to start upon his first trip, which will be
from Baltimore to New York, a distance
of two hundred miles, which he thiuks he
will make in three hours. Ha has. he
savs. made seventy tour miles an hour iu

in New York, Washington, and other
cities in the Union, and the venture will
not be until the spring of 1876. The
ship was christened a few evenings since

skin from the back of her neck to the
eyebrows. A considerable time elapsed
before medical aid reached her. aud it
was not deemed advisable to attempt to
. . . a t
restore the lifeless scalp to its tortner
place. To-day, Dr. A. J. Howe, of Cin
einuatti, commeuced tbe restoration of
skin to the wounded girl s bead by takiug
small piece of scalp from the bead ot
her sister, who gave beraelf freely for ber
injured sister's relief, while auother lady
offered skiu from ber own shoulders to
supply what was ueeded for the forehead.
Supplies sufficient to start a growth ot
new membraue were taken irom eacu oi
these ladies, aud while Mrs. Dawson's
condition is daugerous, her physicisu en
tertains considerable hope ot her recovery
and the success of bis effort to cover her
head with new skiu.

Fable of Discontentment.
A canary and a gold-fish had their lot
thrown tocttherin the same room. Oue
hot day tbe master ef the huuse heard tbe
fish complaining of his dumb condition,
snd envvins: the sweet voice of his com
panion overhead. ' Oh 1 I wish I could
sing as sweetly as my friend up there ! "
whilst the canary was eyeing the inhabi
tant of the globe. "Uow cool it looks !
I wish my lot was there i" 4Bo, then, it
shall be," said the master, and forthwith
placed the fish in the air and the bird in
the water: whereupon they saw their folly,
and repented of their discontent. Of
which the moral is sooner drawn than
practised let every man be content iu
the state in which providence has placed
him, and believe that it it what it best
fitted for him.
