J. A. MOOD. M. I>. D. B. ANDERSON, EDITORS. THE LYNCH LAW. -o At each occurrence of a case of lynching, the papers over the State both religious and secular take occasion to express themselves on the subject. Generally it is done in a spirit of disapprobation. We have an idea that to approve or to disapprove of the Lynch-law would be wrong. To approve it would be to approve of a frequent injustice; to disapprove of it altogether would be to rob the peop'e of a means of redress which is sometimes neces? sary. So that, in our opinion, the question is resolved into this-each case should be judged on its own merits, and condemned or condoned-the only difficulty being that a condemnation of the deed after its execution will not remedy the evil. However, we do believe there are cases in which lynch-law is necessary. For instance, a man by means of money, tact or undue inflnence, may lead the public to believe that fae is about to escape the punishment meet for bis crime. Public sentime...

There was once a castaway, And she was weeping, weeping bitterly ; Kneeling and crying with a heart-sick cry, That choked itself in sobs, {iO my good name ! 0 my good namer' and none did hear her cry. Nay ; and it lightened, and" the storm-bolts, fell, And the rain splashed upon the roof, and still She, storm-tossed as the stormy clements, She cried with an exceeding bitter cry, "O my good name!" And then the thunder? cloud Stooped low and burst in darkness overhead, And rolled and rocked ber on her knees, and shook The frail foundations of her dwelling-place ; But she-if any neighbor had come in, (None did)-if any neighbor had come in He might have seen her crying on her knees.

RELIGION. MORALS AND PHILOSOPHY. Rev. C. C. BROWN, Editor. UNREST. ?cOur heart is restless till it rests in Thee." Augustine. There is i strange wild wail around, a wail of wild unrest, A moaning io the music with echoes uncoa fessed, And a small mocking twitter here and there, ? T. Ith smail notes shrill and thin. And deep low shuddering groans that rise from caves of gloom within. And s?t! the weird wail crosses the harrao- j nies of God, J And still the wailers wander through his fair j lands, rich and broad ; Grave thought-explorers swell the erv of doubt and nameless pain, And careless feet among the flowers trip to the dismal strain. They may wander as they will in the hopeless search for truth, They may squander in the quest all the fresh? ness of their youth, They may wrestle with the nightmares of siu's unresting sleep, They may cast a futile plummet in the heart's unfathomed deep. But they wait and wail and wander in vain and still in vain, Though they glory ia the dimness...
