and cemictil picture of the temptationsto which

But with stoncliast soul, no was blotplo,
The holy page InNeanned.

With rich tiaras on the heed,

And drummed It with Lie feels;
And Imlooked as strange and as picturesque
As the figures we bee In an arabesque,
Half blddon in flowers, all painted In frenque,
In Gothic vaulted cells.
Then ho whooped and hawed, and winked'andgrinric
• And his eyes stood out with glee;
And he said these words, and lie sung this song, • s'
And his logs and his arms, with their double prong
Keeping time with his tune as It galloped along,

As birth to his song gave he.' •
"Old Tony, Jnyboy ! abut up your book,

When the gibbet tree sways lu the blast:
And, with gurgling thelnes and stilled groitus,
Ile mocked the good St. Anthony's tones
As he unuttered his praynnr full last.
A rosary of beads was hung by his skis—
Oh, guunt.-looklng beads were they!
And still, when the Ailed &dot dropped a bead,
lie dropped a tovth; and hu took good heed
To rattle his 80[115, and the bones replied,

THE TEXAS CAMP-MEETING; OIt ;
PAUL DENTON'S BARBECUE.
During the last week in September, 1836,
the first successful camp-meeting was'hold in
Eastern rOSILS. I employ the epithet t. suc
cessful," because several previous failures bad
apparently rendered efforts of the kind per
fectly hopeless. Indeed, the meridian at this
period was most uncongenial to religious and
moral enterprise. The country, bordering on
the Sabine, had been occupied rather than
settled, by a class of adventurers almost so
wild as the savages they had scarcely expelled,
and the beasts of prey which still disputed
their, domain of prime/al forests. Profession
al gamblers, refugees from every hind, forgers
of false coin, thieves, robin' a and murderers,
interspersed ainthig the race of uneducated
hunters and herdsmen, made up the strange
social miscellany, without courts or prisons,
or churches or sehools, or even the shadoW of
civil authority or subordintuion—a sort of
principled Pandemonium, where fierce Passion
sat enthroned, waving its bloody sceptre, the
bowie-knife! ' Let no one accuse-me °Nang
geration for the sake of dramatic effect; I am
speaking now -of Shelby county, where, ten
years later, forty persons were poisoned to
death at a marriage supper.
It will be titivious, that in such IL communi
ty, very few wealth be disposed to patronize
canlp•meetings and, accordingly, a dozen
different trials. at various times, Lod never
collected a hundred hearers on any occasion.
But oven these wore not allowed to worship
-in peaco ;.- uniformly the first day.ormight,.a_
band of armed desperadoes. headed by' the
notorious Watt Fotunan, the executioner
of the -Shelby lynchers, broke in the altar,
scalTiered the mourners, or ascended the pul
pit and threatened the-preachers to a gratui
tons robe of tar and t'eatfte•s. 'thence the
prudent. evangelista — somilearned to shun the
left bank of the Sabine, no if it had been
fested with a cohort of demons. and two whole
years elapsed without tiny new attempt to
erect the cross in so perilous a field,.
At• length, however, an advertisement ap
peu•ed, promising another,effort in behalf of
the Gospel. The notice was unique, a perfect
backwoods curiosity, both as LO its tenor and
mode of publication, Let me giva-itworbatitm.

which boiled up with stillici • ent• force to turn
n mill-wheel, in the very centye of the ever
green-grove—Here mpulpit•waS erected,•and
before it was the inseparable altar for Mourn
ing. Beyondthese, at adistanie of fifty paces,
a succession of plank tables attended in the
form of a great circle, or.the perimeter of a
polygon, completely closing the area about
the, spring. An odoriferous stream of the
most delicious Paver diffused itself through
the air. This was from the pits of the adja
cent prairie, where the fifty slaves of Peter
Brinson were engaged in cooking the promis
ed barbecue. •
'The grove itself was literally alive, teeming,
swarming, running over with strange figures
in libmnu shape, men, women, and children. ,
All ,Shelby county was 'there,' The hunters
had their rifles in their hand, the dogs bark =

gamblers with pistols in their belts, and big
knives peeping from their shitibosoms, while

he took three steps towards Brinson, and fair

. This was the ultimatum of one whosnautho,

without a murmur The smoking viands were
arranged on the table by a score' of slaves, and
(ho throng prepared to commence the sump
tuous meal, whets a voice pealed from the pul
pit, loud tin the blast of a trumpet in battle,
"Stay, gentlemen and ladies, till the giver of
this barbecue asks God's blessing."
Every ear started, evcr,y eye was directed
to the speaker, and a whisperless silence en
sued, for all alike Wile struck by his marvel
lous appearance. Ho was almost a giant in
stature, though scarcely twenty years of age;
his hair, dark as the raven's wing, flowed
down his immense shoulders, More' beautiful
than any ever wreathed round the 'jeweled
brow of is queen by the labored achievement
of human art; his eyes, black as midnight,
beamed like stars over a face as pale as Peri

in mute astonishment.
• The missionary prayed, but it sounded like
no other prayer over addressed to, the throne
of the Almighty. It contained no encomiums
on,the splendor of Divine attributes; no peti
tions in the tones of commando ; no orisons
for distant places, times or objects; no implied
instructions as to the adi, inistration of the
governniiiiit of the universe. It related ox,

"inerly of Carlisle, noW of .fletroit,.Michigan,.
under date of Milan, FebrUary 14, an account
of tho discovery at nouns of an,intoresting
relic. Ho says :
"In the progress of the excavations on the
Palatine, whore stood the House - of Gold of
theTaisars, the fraginent of an arch, covered
with inscriptions and delineations, was brought
to view. Further explorations in the same
direction resulted hi the exposure of .a room,
.on the walla of whioh was found a Slietoh,out
'Or - engrtiypd with a sharp-pointed instrument,
of a crucifix, .with the.figure of a man in the

removed from its position, happily without
injury,and confided to .10 - eliarge of Monscig-,

by whose permission I`procured a copy to bo

less to say that this ,evetit has elicited elabo

There were numerous Christiana in his Court,

his Pagan associate or companion.
It is unnecessary to, rqcall the existence
pf the legend, current. throughout the Boman
dominions in. the days of the empire, that the
Christians worshipped a divinity'whose head
differed in no respeat from that of Aguas In
Africa, then filled with rich and- splendid
cities, this was the popular belief: It Was

the sande of Panic to the Pisidhth forests,
end-levelled-at—tho-con wart s-do—this:strange
faith in the:streets of Narheorders, Atnida and Martlin - fon-the-hill. The later .Gnostice, in
particular, more especially the sects of Jiar
desanes, omitted no occasion to disseminate
this calumny, accompanied with every epithet
of contempt anti detestation. -It ds alluded to
in the pages of the contemporary fathers, by
whom it was repelled with vehement. and ir
repressible indignntihn Tho origin of this
monstrous inventim is lost to us. There can
be little doubt, however, that it had its foun
dation in the hatred with which the disciples
of the pure and spiritual doctrine were inva
riably regarded by the idolatrous nations
among whom they lived. But whatever rho
source, the first.mention of this calumny on
ours in tiro records relating to the period in
throwing between the years ono hundred and
twenty and two hundred and fifty of our era,-
subsequent to which epoch all trace of it die
appears; Precisely during the same period
the room in whielpthe ilesign was found was
constructed. - • .
"The palace of the Censors on the Palatine,
Was the growth of. successive reigns. That
part of it. which embraces the chamber in
queetion was Iluilt by Hadrian, as the bricks,
of which it. wae,chiellyttomposed, attest. They
are impressed with the names and titles of the
Consuls Pactinus and Apronicanue. This
coinciderme—the prevalence of the legend in
the years already mentioned, and during that
period only, ,and Hee erection within the same
time of the wall on which the drawing is
traced—establishes, satisfactorily, the purpose
of the sketch, as well as the date of its execu
tion. Still more concldsivo, pelleaps, Is the
manner in which the figure upon the cross is
presented to view:" It is delineated with dra
-piny, while it, was the invariable practice in
executions of this nature, a mode of punish
ment very common among the Romans, to
expose the victim or criminal in a state of
nakedness. This discrepancy finds its sole
warrant in the tradition that our Lord was
put to death with a garment about his loins,
and its admission in a work omeanating from
the hands of a Pagan, whom we cannot sup
pose to have been influenced by any senti
ments of awe or respeet, and tvhose . experi

parturo from the uniform custom, indicates
clearly a caricature, of which the first requi
site is conformity to its prototype. Finally,
the words, 'Alexander adoretaol,' admit of
no other interbretution ; nothing in history,
legendary or monumental, tending to the idea
that the symbol-of a crucified being was even'
regarded as an object of veneration by any
other sect thait the followers of Christianity."
WODEAN , IS - VENERATION.
IF women have ono weakness more marked.
than limn, it is towards veneration. They
-are born worshippers—makers of silver
shrines in Some .divinity or other. which of
- course,-they always-think fell straight down
from heaven. The first step toward-their
'falling in love
: with an ordinary mortal is
generally to dross him out with all manner
of real or fancied superiority; and having
made him up, they worship him. Now ; a
truly great man, a man really grand and
noble in art and intellect, has this advantage
with women, that he is an illolLriaily made
to hand; and so that very pains taking and
ingenious sox have less labor in getting him
up, and can be ready to worship him on
shorter notice.—ln particular is this the case
where - a sacred profersion and a morel su
premacy ace added to the intellectual. Just
