of its ascension a still" gale was blowing

In that time the balloon traveled over a

Easter has come and girie. Another
mile post has been passed in the christian
career from the cross on Cavalry to the
crown of universal dominion. Sunday
was tber anniversary of the eveut
that marks the one great epoch in
earth's history. Tho day when the
Prince of Peace achieved a victory over
satan, death aud hell, and offered free
dom to a captive and pardon to a doomed
race. The day was commemorated in
Charlotte by appropriate and impressive
services in the -Catholic, Episcopal and
Lutheran churches. On Sunday two
hundred and fifty luilliou Cat holies scat
tered through every nation and clime
were singing anthems of praise to him
who exchanged the crown of universal
sovereignty for a crown of thorns. Mil
lions of Episcopalians ami Lutherans
were paying like honors to the great
founder of religion Ihat brought light
and liberty to a benighted world. Strange
that, all branches of the christian church
do not celebrate the day.

A correspondent of the Mecklenburg
Times says "ihe farmers gave Roller lib

negroes also manifested their delight."'
Coiiiel it enter into the astute brain of
that correspondent to understanel thai
the financial stringency and other causes
that are crushing the spirits and elestrey
iag hope in the heaits of the farmer are
bearing with double force on the poor
ragged half fed farm negro. Can he con
ceive the possibility that the negro may
ee a glimmer of hope in a movement to
bring relief to the man whose laud he
ills? We don't suppose such thoughts
could enter the mind of the correspon
dent, but we who employ the. negro

sympathize with him, ;ind in striving to
ameliorate our condition we arc willing
;hat the tenant on our soil should spare
