The Sunday School.
Messrs. Khitors : The proceedings of
our County Convention last week, clearly
brought out several things worthy the at
tention of ail Christian people, viz :
1. There are many places in Union
county destitute of religious privileges,
where the children are suffered to grow up
in ignorance and vice.
2. That the duty of ovangelmng those
dark corners rests on, tue Christians ot tne
3. That the Sunday school is a very im
portant and efficient iunirumcntality in the
Drosecution of such a work ; and therefore !
4. Steps should be takun without de -
lay, to establish
one ia every destitute
All the Convention could do was to
Doiut out the dutv. and resolve that it
ought to be done. For the performance
of it, we must look to the faithfuluesi of
individual Christians.. But ichat Chris -
tians ought to address themselves to this
work f Ia answer to this question, we
we need only refer to several principles
evident to every intelligent christian
mind, viz: Ccd calls psople into Lis
kingdom for the very purpose of making
thein instrumental in promoting tho inter-
ests of that kingdom. In such a work,
every Christian is bound to choose the
best means, and do all he can. The Sun
day school is a means in which the fee
blest Christian may do something, either
as a teacher or a scholar. And now, in I tg. r ti,e cor,J may be lengthened so

school, together with the parents and !
others, for praise aid prayer, and the con
sideration of subjects connected with the
Sabbath school. One, who was never ab
sent from these meetings, except from un
avoidable necessity, was a farmer, living a
in'ilo from town a man of little educa
tion, unnscd to public speaking, and so
timid that be could never be induced to
express hif sentiments on suljeots before i
the meeting. Some six or seven weeks
since, it was noticed that be bad ceased to
come to the meetings. Where was he,and
what was he doing ? In the capacity of a
self-constituted, unpaid Sunday School
Missionary, be was scouring the dark and
destitute corners of the county, making
the very best practical use of the trnths
beard at the meeting. And what has been
the result T He has already succeeded in
establishing our Sabbath schools in places
where they wcro very much needed.
Now look at the nature of such a work.
This man, while faithfully engaging in it
himself, bas at the same time called into
active service a number of co-workers, and
thus multiplied his ewn labors ten, twen-
ty, or fifty-fold, and sent throughout those
neighborhoods an influence nufelt before;
yea, he bas thus become the fountain of I
an influence whose stream shall be for
ever widening, and whoso depth none can
fathom except that Spirit who alone
searches the deep things of God.

The Chevalier de Uienenberg,of Prague,
has discovered a method of effectually pre
serving fruit trees in blossom from the fa
tal effects of frost. This method is ei-
j tremely simple. He surrounds the trunk
of the tree in blossom, with a wisp of
straw or hemp the end of this he sinks,"
with a (tone tied to it, in a vessel of spring
water, at a little distance from the tree.

All ciln rs
Hon. Lemuel Todd reported the follow
ing expressions of sentiments, which were
unanimously and enthusiastically adopted :
RitttfoeJ, lt. That Executive inter
vention to prostrate the will of the people,
constitutionally expressed, cither in the
State or Territories, is a dangerous cle-
ment of Federal power, and that its cx.r-
cisc by the present Chief Magistrate of
tbe Kepublic, as well in l'.Iectionsas upon
the Representatives of the people, meets
our decided disapprobation.
2. That we protest against the sec
tional and pro-slavery policy of tbe Na
tional Administration, as at war with the
rights of the people, and subversive of the
principles of our government.
3. That we denounce and will unitedly
ortnose all atteniDts to enact a Contrres-
IF - r - W
sional Slave Code for the Territories, be
lieving the same to be utterly at war with
the true purposes of our government, and
repugnant to tho moral tenso of the na
tion : aud that we re-affirm our continued
hostility to the extension of Slavery over
the Territories of the Union.
4. That we regard all suggestions and
propositions of every kind, by whomsoever
ma le, ior a revival oi lue .urican siave
trade, as shockiug to tho moral sentiments
of the enlightened portion of mankind;
that any action on the part of tbe govern
ment or people conniving at or legalizing
that horrid and iuhuman traffic, would
justly Suhjuet tno gowovaatacnt mail Citizens
of tho United States to the reproaoh and
execration of all civilized and christian
pcoolc. and that the inaction of the Na-
ionjLi Administration in bringing tbe
slave-traders to justice, and its course in
sending such as have been arrested to trial
in places where acquittal was certain, sub
ject it fairly to the charge ef conniving at
tho practical re-opening of that traffic.
5. That we hold the encouragement
and protection of home production and
American industry to be one of the first
duliei of our government; that the fail
ure to obtain such encouragement and pro
tection from the last Congress, notwith
standing the professions of the President,
conviuces us that the laboring masses of
tbe Free State will look in vain for a tar
iff for the protection of free labor while the
administration of the government is in the
bands of the party now in power; and that
w believe the ad valorem system wholly
inadequate to tbe protection we demand,
and in lien of it we are in favor of specific
duties npon iroB, coal, salt, and all such
other products wholly the growth and
manufacture of the United States.
C. That the reeklcss and prufligato ex
travagance of the National Administration,
causing a necessity for continued loans
without any means provided for their pay
ment, give evidence of a want of that abil
ity and integrity whieh should character
ize the government of a free people, and
unless checked will lead to a dishonor of
the national credit.
7. That the passage of a just homo
stead bill, giving one hundred and sixty
acres of land to every citizen who will set
tle npon and liuprovu tbe Btto, woulil L. ,
a measure fair in priueiple,sound in policy,
and productive of great good to the people
of the nation. That wo regard the defeat
of Mr. Grow'a bill in the Senate of the
United States, by the party in power, as a
direct blow at the laboring classes of tho
country, and as unworthy of the liberality
of a great government. And that kindred j
to this was the defeat, by the same party,
of the pre-emption bill which gave prefer
ence to actual settlers over land specula
tors. 8. That the purity and safety of the
ballot-box must be preserved, and that all
frauds upon the naturalization laws, which
bavo been so much resorted to to promote
the success of tbe party we oppose, ought
to be counteracted by wholesome and pro
9. That we approvo of tbe enactment
of proper laws to protect us from the in
troduction of foreign criminals iu our
midst, by returning them at once to the
places whence tbey bave been shipped to
10. We cordially invite all men of all
parties to join with us, in earnest endea
vors to restore tbe government to its ori
ginal purity, aud to preserve the proud
heritage of American Institutions, trans

The Black Knot on the Flam.
The black knot I believe can be kept
in cheek, if not exterminated. It is un
doubtedly tbe sting of an icsect, about
an inch long, pale yellow in color, four
wings, and bind legs reserabliog those of
grasshoppers. The puncture of the branch
is done by tho female, who stings it in
order to deposit Lcr eggs. These epg,
numberiog often as many as ten or a d fi
eri, aro laid in August and September.
Tbcy are soon hatched, and the larvru lie
dormant until the early part of the follow
ing Summer, when they are changed into
winged insects. Tbe tumor on the tree
appears to be caused partly by tho punc
ture itself, and partly by a poisonous sub
stance infused at tbe time tho wound is
made. In August and September, the
insects will be found busy at work, sting
ing the branches and making their depos
its; whieh being done, the whole is var
nished over with a water-proof substance,
and domestic matters are kept quiet until
the larva; are batched. Cut open the
limb that has been stung, early in June,
and the larv.-u will bo found alive aud
kicking. Of course, the only way to
subdue this pest is to wage an unceasing
war upon it. Kntrap him in bottles of
sweetened water bung in tho trees ; burn
him in bonfires kindled in the garden by
night; examine the trees often, and cut
out the tumors
as soon as they appear,
This cutting of the limbs
tDd burn them.
doss no serious harm, they soon heal over.
By pursuing this vigorous treatment, the
black knot will do little practical injury.
Thoa Shall aol Commit Acultm."
Ono brief passage in the Sickles trial
might furnish a text for many "political
sermons." We will quote the passage,
and leave tbe thoughtful reader to make
his own reflections. In the course of a
discussion as to the admissibility of a
wife's testimony, occurred the followiug :
"Mr. CarliJe. In North Carolina, the
wife of a slave may be examined against
"Judge Cravord. It must be go, le
caute if aces can net contract marriage.
"Mr. Stanton. Precisely : that is the

please observe tbe fact stated by Judge
Crawford, that, among the four millions
of human beings held as slaves in this
country, there is no such thing as lawful

the stock of slaves kept good, without
marriage ! Please overhaul your Cate

An interesting report has just been sub
mitted by the Convention of the South
Carolinian Episcopal Church, at their
session in 1S59, in respect to the marriage
of slaves. The following is the substance
of the decision arrived at by the Commit
tee ! The relation of husband and wife
is declared to be of divine institution, and
lo be equally binding on the slave as well
as on the master. The injunction of the
Savior forbidding the separation of bus-
