expfcled in the principal inland townofour

ui'.cli other- business done than the Coijrt had
Iwoiight iliere. The streets were crowded
with wagons from a distance, and strangers
seemed arriving Ht all hours, and from "all

here, all well supplied with a great .variety of
gomjs, and several wholesale establishments
who piopose fumishirrg the western merchants,
at northern pi ices. The stores we were most
familiar with, were those of Messrs. EoI.ms &
Shemwkll, jiikI Mr. Myeks, sign of ih'e Red

the display as wejl as in the selection o!f their
goods. ' f !
We visited the large steam cotton factory of
Maxwell Chambers, in theJimits of ihe town
and were much taken with the beaut vj of the
machinery, the systemmalic arrangement Ol
the ditlereut branches, and the order and pre

about one hundred, employed and the' conse.

Scriptural Plan of Benevolence.
(by rev. sam'l hareis.)
DulytifiSystfjnutic Benevolence inferred
from the nature und motives of piety.
Piety begins with a change of heart.
The greaier part of life is usually occu
pied with the acquisition and use. of pro
priety.' A change of heart, if real, can
not leave this principal part of life unaf-
iectecl. Ihe subject of it must be expected

using property, the professed subject of a
change consisting in placing the alTec
tions on things above, continue show
the same estimate of property as the grf at
end to be sought, the same eagrnessn
getting, the same tenacity in holding, the
same self-seeking , U6ing it, need it be
surprising that his worldly competitors j
doubt the' reality of the change? Must

Religion is love. And love is active.
It is as natural for love to act beneficently,
as for a fountain to flow, or a star to shine;
and its action is ungrudging, unstinted,

In a world so intensely selfish, it was

that the great lesson of self denying,
