King of Naples had also a direct interest in his
restoration, for he was at war with his own sub

The Camp Itfeciinff.
A Camp Meeting, under the unspices of the
Methodist Episcopal Chinch, commenced at Or-
augeville, on the 3J, and terminated on the Oih ol
August. There were quile- a number of able
cleuvmeri in attendance on that occasion, and
t'ne Gospel Message was proclaimed from time lo
time, with power and in demonstration of the
Holy Spirt. We trust their "labor's of love arid
messages of peace" were not witliout influence,
and will exert a lasting benefit in time upon those
vho heard tbtin and tt 11 with greater effect in e
teuiity. We regret lo s.'V, that at a place and on an oc
casion, so solemn and sacred, as tho tented grove,
consecraie.l to the worship of Almighty God
there were congregated some disorderly persons,
who were gu.l.y of improp. r conduct. We how
ever rej .icc to know, that the violators of Law

Mooting weie rig. illy punidicd. Several had lo

lo Ihe keeping of Shpnff H.iyman, for an assault

readers will learn with regret the intelligence of
tho brutal attack upon Mr. Madison, of Marion
county. W'e understand the cause, to hove been
this: Mr. Madison and Dr. II. M. B.vme were ri
ding together past the plantation of Lui lesoti, and
witnessed some inhuman treatment of the field
hands hv himself and his overseer, Meadows.
The In u'es had caused a uwiiii to be turn in

were afterward i. .dieted l.tr his cruelty by the
Grand Jury of their county, and seem to have re
solved upon revenue. Tney accordingly waylaid
Mr. Madi.i.n, near Orange tunings, as he was li
ding home, attended by a servant. Idled him lo
the ground with a club, stabbed him in several
places, and left him lor dead. The seivant es
caped, and procured assistance. Mr. Madison af
terwards revived sufficiently fo make a deposi
lion before a magistrate, but lelapsed into insen
sibility, and is not expected to live. His scull
was fractured in three places, from one of which
the brain protruded. Ly ycsteidaj's mail, we

coolly, lie may ex. use himself in his attempt
to raise a quarrel on the ground that it is a ques

We utterly deny tho charge of "attack," as
we are the attacked, and shall resent llir-
onslaiigh accordingly : hence, we pro
nounce the allegation as utterly deficient
in fact and destitute tf truth. We have

The silly assertion, there promulgated,
that ve arc the author of the two articles

credence, with the story he has elsewhe re
reported, that the writer of these produc

iu thus perverting the truth, is olniously
to neutralize the influence of our able cor
respondent, the withering f .rce of whose
truthful pen he most .sensibly feels, but of
whose name and locality he is utterly igno

No doubt their prayers have ascended as
sweet incense before the Lord, and why
may we not look for them to be answered.
Nay, is it not our duty firmly to believe
they will be? "Wherever two or three
are gathered together ia my name" says
Christ, "there will I be to grant their re
quests." Dut here were not only Iwo or
three, but a whple nation, millions of hu
man beings prostrated in the dust of hu
milily,earncstly begging llie same blessing.
But is it not a little strange that all this
should be done just to get rid of the Chol
era, and that too, at a time when there is a
far worse disease among us. Why it is
only a few months since the first caso of
cholera occurred in the United States ; but
the disease to w hich I refer, has for centu
ries cursed our nation and the world. The
former only deprives its victims of a few
years of toil and trouble in the world ; but
the latter ruins their reputation, strips them
of their wealth, beggars their wives and
children and after laying their bodies in
an ignominious grave, sends their sou's to
everlasting punishment. The victims id' llie
one amount only lo a few hundred, but
those of the other, have, for the last twenty
years, been thirty thousand annually.
But no fast is instituted for the purpose
of soliciting divine interposition against
such a curse. No day is recommended
by the President, "as a day of fasting, hu
miliation and prayer," No business on
the Publi.: Works is stopped. No nation
is clothed in sackcloth, and no national pray
er is ofTered up iu behalf of the poor drunk
ard. II nt mi the contrary, when some
philanthropic s-pniis endeavored to devise
means by which they might rescuo him
from his deplorable condition, the great
mass of tho people with one voice proclaim
ed against them. "Masonnry," "political
hobby," are names by which they were
wont to stigmatize their praisworlhy de
signs. Among their most strenuous oppo
sers too, were found some of "Sion's watch-mux,"
I say these things, Mr. Editor,
appear strange to
