BE IN TIME.
The voice of.wisdom hoar,
Be in time, he in time,
To give up every sin
In earnest, now begin,
For the night will soon set in,
Bo in time,,be in time.
Ye aged sinners bear,
Be in time, be in time,
Your sins are moving fast,
Your dye will soon be cast,
Ye aged men make , haste,
Be in time, be in time.
Though late you may return,
Be in time, be in time.
Though late You may return
You're not too old to learn,
While the lamp holds out to burn,
Be in time, be in time.
Ye who are young in years,
Be in time, be in time.
You say you're in your bloom,
And far from the dark tomu,
But mind your day will come,
Be in time, be in time.
Back-slider, doet thou bear,
Be in time, be in time,
Thy sinful course forsake
And thyself to'prayer betake
Thy deathless soul's at state,
Be in time, be in time.
Should you the work delay,
You're undone, you're undone,
Should you the work delay
And squander life away,
Death will be a solemn day,
Be in time, be in time.
Ohl should the door be shut,
When you o , me, When you come,
Should God in thunder say,
Depart from me away
Oh I 'twill be too late to pray,
Be in time, be in time.
The Slave Law Givers,
Hon. A. IC. McClure, of this State,-
who has been sojourning during the
winter at Columbia, the Capital of
South Carolina, has written a long let
ter to the Chambersburg Repository un
der the above title. It so forcibly ex
hibits the extraordinary changes that
have taken place in the civil polity of
South Carolina since the war, that we
transfer it to our columns:
Here the Slave is now the Master ;
the Bondman is, the Law-giver. Here
has been fulfilled that singular proph•
ecy ventured by Jefferson soon after
his retirement from the Presidency.
Speaking of the crime of slavery, he
said, "that considering numbers, na
tive and natural means only, a revolu
tion of the wheel of fortune, an ex
change of situation, is among possible
events, and it may become probable
by supernatural interference ! The
Almighty has no attribute which can
take side with us in such a contest."
Iwallred leisurley along the broad
streets of Columbia, to the imposing,
but still unfinished capital of South
Carolina. The softest breeze of North
ern spring-time greeted me, and the
beautiful magnolia, mock-orange, firs,
and other evergreens, seemed to pro.
claim perpetual summer. 'fbe streets
are crowded with motley groups of
whites and blacks, and on the modest
elevation that fixes the centre of the
main avenue stands the point of at
traction—the capitol with the Legis
lature in session. I entered the vast
rotunda, and passed on to the legisla
tive halls, to witness the deliberations
of the novel Legislature of reconstruc•
ted South Chrolina.
The Senate Hall, designed to echo
the eloquence of the Hamdens, the
Rhetts, the Hammonds, and other dis
tinguished sons of chivalry, has been
fitted up in a modest elegance, and 18
whites and 15 negroes fill its chairs.—
As a body, it. is but little below some
Northern Senates I have seen, in point
of intelligence, and among its metn
tors are able men of both races. ' Mr.
Corbins, the President, is a very able
lawyer and debater, and perhaps the
commanding intellect of all the contri
butions from the North to the states
manship of South Carolina. Ho is
well appreciated, too, as a Senator, U.
S. District Attorney, and codifier of
the laws, and fills all with credit, Sen
ator Jillson, another son of New Eng
land, is a gentleman of culture, and is
State Commissioner of Education, as
well as legislator. Senator Leslie is
an ex-New York Democrat and ex-
Democratic legislator from Brooklyn.
Ile is now a Republican Senator, and
State Land Commissioner. These
doubly or trebly honored gentlemen
are not singular, however. There was
a lack of white material when the
wheels of government wore put in
motion, and it became an agreeable
necessity for a number to accept mul-
tiplied offices. Mr. Mons, Speaker of
the House, is Adjutant General; and
Mr. Nagle, Controller General; Mr.
Tomlinson, Auditor General; Mr. Elli
ott, Assistant Adjutant General, and
fdr. Stolbrand, Superintendent of the
Penitentiary, are all commissioned
State officers, and members of the
The moat notable negro in the Leg
islature is Senator Wright. He is a
full-blooded negro, of medium size,
with a finely chiseled face and hand
somely developed head. He came
hero with the certificate and seal of
the Supremo Court of Pennsylvania,
as an Attorney-at Law. His features
and form are fairly Caucasian in all
save color, and he speaks fluently and
forcibly. Ho,is eminent for his integ•
city, and devotes himself intelligently
and earnestly to the advancement of
his race and State. On the right of
the Chamber site a tall, gaunt, full
blooded negro, black as mid-night,
with the regular Southern negro dia
lect, and the awk,ward gait of a field
hand. He is Senator Nash, the rep
resentative of the capital district, and
successor to Wade Hampton. He is
quite intelligent although entirely un
educated, and was, in olden times, the
best hotel porter in Columbia. Sena-
Or gain sits near the centre aisle ; and
boasts of no discount on his African
blood. He is a tolerable debater, and
an ardent preacher of the Methodist
persuasion. A little in front of him,
sits Senator Swells, a light quadroon,
and a hasty graduate of the country
free schools of the Cumberland Valley.
He is doubtless remembered by many
of tho citizens of Chambersburg. He
writes a beautiful hand' and 'speaks
The hour of noon is indicated by
the plain mahogany circular clock,
above the door, and the Senate is call
ed to order. Avery plain jet-black,
white chokored man stepped up on
the Speaker's stand and called tho
Senators to their devotions. A more
simple, beautiful and appropriate pray
er 1 never heard, than Chaplain Ad
ams offered for his dubious flock, and
stricken Commonwealth. Routine leg
islation then followed, and I turned
to take a look at, the popular branch
of the Legislature. It sits in the spa
cious library room of the new capitol,
temporarily appropriated to the pur
pose, and a large gallery is usually
crowded with negroes, watching with
intense interest the maiden , efforts of
their respective_ brethren, as laic-mak
ers. Speaker Moses is in the chair,
and he presides with great dignity
and ability. He is an Israelite, - and an
enthusiast. Froin an extreme rebel
ho has transformed himself into an ex
treme Republican. As a Staff officer
of Governor Pickens, he was accorded
the honor of hoisting that Confederate
flag over Fort Sumpter, *hen Ander
son surrendered, and now he presides
over the first Republican Legislature.
His father was rebel commissioner to
persuade North Carolina to join in se
cession, and now he administers Re
publican laws in hearty sympathy, as
Chief Justice of the State.
The Speaker soon vacated the chair,
and a stout, finely formed negro took
his place and presided very gracefully.
Ho is Mr. Whipper of Charleston—a
Michigan waif that came with war
and lodged, when the army was dis
banded. His face is round, full and
well-drawn. If covered with a white
skin and flaxen hair his features would
be more than ordinarily good. Ho is
the Patrick Henry of the House as an
orator; but his want of culture mars
the beauty of his sentences. Ile is a
lawyer, and aspires to the vacant seat
of the !Supreme Bench, as does Sena
tor Wright. Mr. Blliott,,a Massachu
setts negro of full- blood. is perhaps
the ablest disputant and parliament
ary leader on the colored side of the
House I saw him lead in a despe
rate struggle of two days, in support
of a bill that was fought desperately
by fillibuStering, and be managed it
with great skill until he covered his
efforts with succesd. Capt. Small, the
hero of the "Planter" during the - war,
is also a member. He is a stout, bur
ly mulatto, and his face indicates con
siderable intelligence and great- dccis
sion of purpose. Ponds, is . a neat,
slender mulatto, and hails from Phila
delphia, where his father is 'well
known as one of the most . successful
financial princes of his race. The son
is the negro Beau Brumrnel of the
House—dresses very tastefully, and
parts his soft waving hair in the mid
dle. He is an active and influential
member and speaks well. De Largo
is a dumpy, little quadroon, a fluent
but not very forcible talker, and has
'a passion for the floor. He was a
steward in the rebel nary during the
war. Cook, of Greenville, is a very
genteel mulatto, and a quiet but effi
cient member. He is the son of his
former master, and long struggled to
free himself from bondage. He saved
fifteen hundred dollars, by sixpences
and shillings earned after labor hours,
and offered in vain for his liberty.—
Finally the rebellion brought Bmanci•
pation, and his savings gave him a
The HOUK) is nearly two thirds no
groes who were once slaves, and every
possible shade is to be found. There
are half a dozen members who would
readily pass for pure whiles, but they
were South Carolina slaves only a few
years ago. Mr. Tomlinson, a Philadel
phia Quaker, and an offshoot of the
Bureau, is the ablest white man on
the floor, and ono of the most vigilant
and faithful members in either branch.
Close to him sit Gen. Dennis and Mr.
Jenks, two able political leaders of the
House. In the front row is the patri
;arch of the Logislature--an old native,
white preacher, his head bleached by
the frosts of over seventy winters. On
each side of the Speaker sits a bright
mulatto clerk, and close by is Mr. Et
ter, the reporter. In the gallery sits
the first negro of South Carolina, with
his sprightly quadroon wife by his
side. Mr. Cordoza, the Secretary of
State, is a robust, full-faced mulatto,
and everything about him indicates
the highest culture. His father and
master was an officer of customs in
Charleston, and gave him a complete
education in Scotland. He was regu
larly ordained as a minister, and was
pastor of a New England congregation
for some years Were the war. Gen.
Howard has urged him to accept a
professorship in the Lincoln Universi
ty, but ho wisely prefers to serve his
long oppressed race in South' Carolina.
He is highly respected by all classes,
and exerts a most salutary influence
in all matters pertaining to the inter
ests of the blacks. If be desired to
fill the Executive Chair of his State or
a seat in Congress, either would he
conceded to him without a serious
struggle; but for the present he is con•
tent to continue as Secretary of State.
It is not improbable, however, that on
the 4th of March, 1871, Mr. Cardoza,
once the slave of South Carolina, may
appear at the bar of the U. S. Senate
to qualify as the representative of the
chivalry in the first legislative tribu
nal of the nation. •-" A. K. _M.

Airs. Burt--[A strict religionist; hut'
her oldest boy is one of our Busydalo
profligates].—l used to, think I know
just how to make boys grow up into
good men. There's Sammy, my Old•
est, when ho was a little shaver,-I al
lers made him git his Sunday school
lesson every Saturday arternoon, and
go to meotin' mornin' and 'arternoon;
besides Sunday-school; ho'knowed big'
catechism by heart from "What is the'
chief end o' man 7" to the end of the
book,'and all the ten commandments,
and.l•mado him go to prayer-meetin'
with me roggar, though he didterwant
to go; but Solomon says, "Train up a
child in the way he should go," and I
tried to train him, but he don't go in
that way now, and I can't help feelin'
as though I'd -made some awful mis
take somewheros. 1 never see him—
and I don't git to see him often nowa
days—but I never do see him but I
don't talk to him about the concerns
of his soul, and ask him if ho ever
thinks about his latter end,
Aunt Betsey.—Mebbe that's the rea
son you don't see no more of him
Folks don't want to be forced to go to
heaven. Ef you talk to hint 'bout' his
dog or his horse, or praise the set of
his coat, or the cut of his whiskers,
'mebbe he'd give you a chance now and
then to talk about his soul. Now, I've
got a brother that is a wicked, worldly
man, and ever since I groomed up and
thought about things, I've made up
my mind that it was religion Lob much
that ailed him. Wh , y's long ago as I
kin remember, mother was allersialk.
in' to him 'bout the gospel ministry,
and goin' missionary to the heathen,
and how he enjoyed his mind. "Hang
me, Bessrsakt he one day, "of I ever
set my foot in a mcetin'-house when I
git to be a man : it's nothin' but psalm
singin', prayer-meetin', and solemn, pi
ons kind of talk from mirth& to night;
and I don't want to go to heaven if
that's what we've got to do forever
and ever." And there Johnny's stuck
ever since, an' I can't help thinkin'
that if he hadn't been stuffed with re
ligion all the time, or what mother
called religion, he'd a been a bettor
man than what he is.
Mrs Lee.—Let us hear
on the positive side of this question.—
Aunt Betsey tells us "how not to do
it." What has Mrs. Smith to say on
the other side 7
Airs. Smith.—l have three boys that
certainly give me nothing but pleasure,
though it's not for mo to praise my
own. There's William, my oldest, who
is surgeon in the navy, and John, who
is practicing medicine, and George,
who is a farmer—all good boys and
members of the church. We always
had family prayers, to be sure, and
went to church regular when they
were little, and we tried to teach them
to be honest and industrious, and keep'
the ten commandments, and follow
Christ's sermon on the mount. They
always loved their home very much,
and didn't seem to care about going
off with other boys, and now they seem
to enjoy talking with each other and
with their sisters better than associ
ating with_ young company about
town. I don't hardly know what kept
them from being wild, like some other
boys I know of, unless they loved their
home so much and didn't want to hurt
their father's feelings and mine by be
ing bad. We never talked about reli
gion so very much, but we tried to net
Mrs. Blake.—l think Mrs. Smith has
hit the nail on the head this time. Ex
ample speaks louder than precept. If
parents •make their children happy
homes and show the beauty of piety
and virtue by consistent Christian
lives, by-evenness of temper, and hea
venly sweetness of disposition, they
will win what they cannot command.
Love is the moat potent element in
training children, though other influ
ences must be likewise brought to bear
on them. When my children were
small, I asked an old minister why he
thought the sons of clergymen so often
turned out badly. oßecause," was his
reply, "they place the church before
the family, when God has placed the
family first." If we wish to insure
success in rearing our sons and daugh
ters in the love of virtue, we must place
our• duties to our families first.
Mrs. Lester —I think the whole sub
ject of piety and virtue should be pre
sented to children in attractive and
engaging form. Let the Bible be read
as a story-book to young children, and
explained so they can understand it,
end as they grow older continue to in
vest the sacred page with now interest
by comments drawn from travels in
the Holy Land, from the manners and
customs prevalent in the East, from
maps and illustrations; thus the hour
of morning devotion may be made the
most interesting and profitable of the

Punishment in Soho.°ls.
Two deaths, one at Chicago and the•
other in New York State, have result
ed lately from whippings in school, and
suits have been instituted against tea
chers in various parts of the country
for severely flogging children under
their charge. It, seems that the "spare
the rod spoil the child" doctrine, which
originated a .very ton.. time ago, is still
pertinaciously adhered to in this en
lightened age and country, notwith
standing it has, beep shown that child
yen ,in schools, at least, can be more
- advantageously managed by means of
other, than corporeal punishment.—
Whatever argument may. be urged in
favor of Solomon's doctrine, it should
he practiced, if practiced at all, by,f,be,
parents of the offending juvenile. Few
,men or women arewilling to bave,their
children beaten by strangers, however
they may delight in heating the*
selves. It might be shown, we think,
that flogging children at all has a bru
talizing tendency and engenders in the
youthful heart far more of evil passion
than, it expels. It is generally inflict

ing, and evil must, beget evil. There
may he instances in which corporeal
punishment is necessary and, beneficial,

to all concerned. There can ,be no
question that: . excessive flogging is
brutal,, well as brutalizing, and
ought notto . ho tolerated even When
administerod.by a parent; certainly
not when done.by a stranger.
Corpdreal punishment has long been .
entirely lainish,ed from the public
schOols of this city, which are among
the best and best governed ; in the
'World, and we see no reason why it
'should not be banished from the schools
of other cities—even Chicago. Human
nature is about the same everywhere,,
and what answers so well here would
answer, equally well in Otherparts, of
the World. It is far better to stimu
late 'than mortify the proper pride, of a
child,"and better-to Win than to.alien
ate its' affections. If one be found per
fectly incorrigible under proper treat
ment, it is not likely that it could he
reformed by means of physical torture.
The best way to dispose of such child
ren is to banish them from the school.
But, happily , such children are very
scarce, aR scbooi experience in this city
has proved. Here almost every pupil
appears to take delight ,in obedience
and in excelling in his or her studies,
and all this without the aid of SOlo
mon's rigid rule and rod. , Patience
and sound judgment in the teacher are
far more potential for good than the
birch 'or the ferrule Phile. Day. ,
HOME —The following from an ex
change, wilt meet with a hearty re
sponse from many hearts: Bless the
old people, say,we ! What should we
do without them ? Does not 'a man
feel better and stronger in the battle
of life for having a gray-headed old fa
ther and mother under the shelter of
- some brOwn-caved farm-house far
away? Does the millionaire's heart
leap so high, at the sight of the'pines
and oranges that daily decorate his ta
ble, as he does when the barrel of
red-streaked apples comes froth the
country home— , -apples from the old
hillside orchard, carefully picked'otit
by a spectacled mother, and directed
in a shaking hand by the kindly old
man ? Ah ! those apples have a flavor
of home and childhood I What ''an.
event it is to the dwellers in brown
stone mansions and marble-fronted pa •
/aces, to have the old folk's come up
from the country on a visit, with their
old-fashioned ways, and antiquated
snuff-colored garments, and. ,horror to
all new, inventions and dangerous nov
elties! We can but smile when they
blow out the gas, and sit as far as pos
sible from the furnace registers for fear
they shall burst, and start every time
,the speaking tubes are used, and re
gard the waterpipes as fearful and
wonderful things:, Such things mike
them feel that their day and genera
tion aro over, oven more than the
whito-headed little grandchildren, and
,the silver threads in the locks of the
son or daughter who was their "baby"
once. Yet there is something beauti
ful in their simplicity—their utter ig
norance of the marvels of city life.
The dear old folks ! As )ongas they
are alive there is always an untiring
ear for our tales of joy or trial, a ready
excuse for our foibtes—there is always
some one to ;whom wo are still "the
children." It is only when the accus
tomed fireside chair is empty, and the
violets growing over the gentle eyes,
that we feel the bitterest pang of heart
sickness that earth has to give. When
the old folks aro gone we are alone,
though a thousand, friends sit around
our hearth stone.
flZif- A good story is told of a Tioga
county merchant who agreed to take
a farmer's oats at 40 cents a bushel if
the hitter would let him tramp the
measures when filled. The farmer
agreed to it. The buyer paid for six
ty bushels and next day went after
them. The farmer filled the half bush
el, and the merchant got in and.tram•
pled them down. Whereupon the far
mer poured the oats so compressed into
the bag. The merchant protested, and
demanded that the measure should be
filled up after tramping The farmei•
informed him that there was no agree
ment of that sort, but that he might
tramp down the oats to his heart's
content after they were measured.

Ho used the knife for digging a

From Andersorrville he went to Char
