Fmni the Mason Connty (Mich ) Record.
We have to record a very singular de
liverance of a girl aboot three years old,
to her parents, after being carried off by a
black bear, and a search or 36 hours thro'
the forest by the excited parents. The
fart, as near as we can gather them, are
substantially na follows :
Mr. Henry i iynn lives 40 miles east
of Ibis place, at or near the logging camps
nf Mr. Ludingtnn, and we believe has
charge of one of the camps. He started one
morning to take a horse to pasture, abont
two miles distant from the house, and a
he was ready to start his little girl appear
ed arid seemed very anxious to go with
her father, who, in order to please the
child, put her upon the horde's hack and let
her ride a short distance, perhaps 40 rods
from the house, where h - put her down an
told her to run home. He noticed that the
child was standing where he left her, and
and on looking back after going a little
tanner saw ner playing in tnc sand, lie
soon passed out nf sight, and was gone
ahont nn hour, expecting of course that
the child would return to the house after
playing a few moments.
Un returning borne bo made enqnu-y
abont the child of her mother, Who said
she had not seen the child, and supposed
he had taken her along with him. -Oil
going to the spot where he b it her, he
awaage bear track in the sand, and at
brother is in a dilemma. lie feels
that lie is aggrieved, and don't know
how to relieve himself. A sugges
tion to change hit name wonld be
manifestly improper, as it would be
giving np initials that have long
been held in honor in North Caro
lina, to very questionable associations
and connections. So we are inclined
just to publish the note aa it was re
ceived, hoping that the publication
may be tha means of doing some
thing to relieve onr brother of his
perplexity, and set tilings right Here

THE TWO 8. C. ALEXANDERS.
B both aa Sherwood ;
There has been not a little con f us
ion, in the minds of brethten at dis
tance, to know who is who and
which is which. I sometimes i
cei ve letters from men that I never
heard of telling me about things I
never did, and my name ia paraded
before the public, sometimes in
strange company. Now 8. Caldwell
Alexander, ia a native of Mecklen
burg Countv, N. C, was licenired and
ordained by Concord Preabvterv.
and in 1860 he moved to Biaek fit v
er Chapei, in Fayetteville Presby
tery, and has been there ever since.
That other S. C. Alexander was bom
some were else: certainly not in
North Carolina : but moved to Con
cord Presbytery abont the time I left.
So it happens that I get credit for
much that he does ; and I am sorroy
to say there waa not moth credit in
Sometimes things are called by the
same name, while in reality there ia
an infinite difference so it is with
these two men. I want it distinctly
understood, that 8. 0. Alexander, of
Black River Chapel, is net that other
S. C. Alexander, in the Western part
of the State, that baa been trying to
turn the church upside down. Broth
