For Our Church Paper. Virginia Synod Notes. The Contest in the North—Historical Inaccuracy—Prof. G. E. Krauth at Staunton—Rev. L. M. Sibole. It has been a source of regret, that certain leaders of the General Synod North and the General Council have entered into a fierce struggle of facts and logic regarding the history of the respective organizations and their present standing in the faith of the church. It apparently is a rehearsal of the old strife which resulted in the organization of the General Connoil. It was hoped that the day for writing harsh statements and characterizations bad passed, and that a period of mutual forbearance and fellowship had been ushered iD. Bat now, when the spirit of unity has manifested itself at Salisbury and Roanoke in bringing the Southern church into one body,on a purely Lutheran basis, these two general bodies in the North make the breach between them wider by many hurtful and fierce declarations. These disoussions can do no good, but will broad...

The sermon is not noted for originality, but it is here presented because of the great value of the carefully collected testimony of tho Great Reformer. Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations. Ask thy father, and he icill show thee ; thy ciders and they will tell thee. Dent, xxxii., 7. That wan a wholesome and profitable exhortation to the Children of Israel. They ought to have taken the matter readily to heart. If they had made good use of it, they could have thereby saved themselves from much sinning and foolishness, pity and misery. 1. Remembrance of our history has repeatedly been made, and ought to be. This is true even of tho Christian world irrespective of denomination. In 1883, the world united in recounting the noble deeds of the Information. I'erhaps the greate...

For Our Church Paper. From Tennessee. By request, the writer held a sacramental meeting at St. James, last Saturday and Sunday. This church is without a pastor. It and two other congregations constitute a pastorate. This pastorate has been in charge of liov. J. B. Fox till recently. My visit to St. Ja-no3 was very pleasant. Here is where I did my first work in the ministry. The services were largely attended. There were ten accessions, one adult baptism, five infant baptisms, and 207 communicants. The collection amounted to $13.85. These things arc evidences of interest. It is too bad for this charge to bo without a pastor. 1 have been called to serve it, tint it is out of my power to do so now. 1 have agreed to visit the three congregations as often as I possibly cau while they are without a pastor. Bro. llancher held a sacra mental meeting for one (Solomon) congregation. The Ith Sunday, I will hold a sacramental meeting tor Salem congregation. Visiting this charge is very hard on ...

Not Walking. Jabe M nth ins, of the 13th Georgia, was a good soldier, but one day, when the Confederates were retreating from the gory field of Gettysburg, Jabe threw hisuiusket on the ground, seated himself by the roadside and exclaimed with great vehemence. "I'll be dashed if 1 walk another step! I'm broken down! 1 can't do it!" And Jabe was a ploture of despair. "Get up, man,'' exclaimed bis Captaiu ; "don't you know the Yankees are following usf They'll get you sure "Can't help it," said Jabe; "I'm done for. "I'll not walk another step!'' The Confederates passed along over the crest of a bill and lost eight, ol poor, dejected Jabe. In a moment there was a fresh rat-! tie of musketry and a renewed crash of shells. Suddenly Jabe appeared on the crest of the hill, moving like a hurricane and followed by a cloud of dust. As he dashed past his Captain, that oflicer yelled : "Hello, Jabe, thought you wusu't going to walk any more.'' "Thunder!'' replied Jabe, as he hit the dust with re...

As the gentle rain descending, And the soft, unsullied snow, In the earth their treasures spending, Muketh it to bud and grow ; So shall fall on every nation, Where no heav'nly plants are found, The good news of Christ's salvation, Till all fruits of grace abound. As the sunlight broadly streaming Drives away the deepest shades. Thro' the forest brightly gleaming, Lets us into hidden glades; So the gospel dawn shall banish Clouds of darker, sadder hue, — Sin and ign'rance all shall vauish Surely as the early dew. Wing Thy Word, dear Lord, and send it Dove-like o'er the vasty sea, Aud may fav'ring wiuds befriend it Till it reach the farthest lee, — Till all lands shall hail it, bringing Tidings of Thy graie, so free.

Jefferson Davis In the Pulpit- JLiOUlsviM-K, November 21.—T0-day at Fairview, on the line between Christian and Todd counties, Ky., there was dedicated a Baptist cbinch, erected 011 the 6ite of the building where Jefferson Davis was born. The ground was purchased aud given by a party of gentlemen to Mr. Davis, who in turn gave it for the location of a: church. The Rev. Dr. Mtrickland, of Nashville, delivered the dedication sermon. Mr. Jefferson Davis was present, and there was an immense crowd, many of whom could not get into the church and were forced to leave, as it was raining hard. After the sermon Mr. Davis was invited to the pnlpit, and, bent with age and supported to the stand, he made a few appropriate remarks, closing as follows: "Now He who rules in heaven bless individually and collectively this whole community, and may His benediction rest on this house forever. More than this it would be improper for me to say.'' Mr. Davis then presented the church with a service of sol...

And while the cock is crowing shrill. The parish bells are chiming, An old man comcth by the mill Far over the fields this way, until I can plainly hear him rhyming—- •' Roam the world over, wherever I call, 'Tis merry in kitchen, 'tis merry in ball." Now he crosseth the white clover patch, Now he is over the stile— Comes through the gate without lifting latch Under my window his music I catch—• "Little friends, listen a while — Roam the world over, wherever I call, 'Tis merry in cabin, 'tis merry in hall."

From the New York Observer. Christmas !■ the Old Car. BY E. LAWRENCE BABNABD. Not far from Charleston Junction, on the line of the Southern Ballroed, la an old car, half bnrled ia the swamp, its sides almost covered with the young palmetto trees. Wear/, perhaps, of its many journeys North aad Boutb, it one day jumped the track and plunged into the woods. Bnt if the veterau coach hoped to rest here it was mistaken, for it is now the home of a family. A rnaty stove pipe protrudes from one end, from which the smoke often carls gracefully towards the tops of the tall pines. One morning, last December, two little girls came out of this house on wheels. They were barefooted aad bareheaded, for their mother could not afford bats or shoes, but, fortunately, the cold winda of the North never reached them, and snow and Ice they had never seen. The ohlldren were going to the Junction to meet the Southern bound train, which was daa in half an hour. While it waited they would sing to the Norther...

A Brave People. History does not record an instance of heroism to that exhibited by < the people of Charleston during the •iege of a seismic battery concealed in iome subterranean or submarine cavern, and against which there is no possible defense. At the beginning of the bombardment the earth trembled as with an ague, opened in gaping fissures and swallowed up many help less people- Substantial baildings reeled and tottered as drunken men, finally falling with a terrific crash, aud burying hundreds of people beneath the ruins. The deafening roar that came up from the depths of the sea and the earth, like the wail of some monster in commingled distress end anger, was enough to appall the stoutest heart. Even the domestic beasts in their stalls and iu the streets drove their hoofs deep into the swaying and sinking sands, and commingled their moanings with the shrieks of anguish and terror that arose from the panic stricken multitudes that had beeu driven from their homes b...

CHURCH PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKBL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XIV. For Our Church Paper. Cbrtatiun Giving. HY REV. W. I>. CLINE. Read at the meeting of the N. C. Conference of the Evangelical Lutheran Tennessee Syn od, in the Church of the Holy Trinity, Hickory, N. O. Published by request of Conference. The true spirit ol Christianity is to give. In tbe 20th chapter of Acta is recorded that beautiful saying of tbe Lord Jesus : "It is more blessed to give than to receive'' l and be, who does not realize this in bis heart, and practice it in bis walk and work of life, falls far short of fulfilling the mission, to which he has been called in God's kingdom. But tliia has not yet been fnlly realized by many who claim to be members of this kingdom. The beauty of giving, in order to be understood and appreciated, mnst be practiced. Christ has given us the plan, and his life is the example. The Christian's life is two-fold: faith and work. By tbe first we obtain sa...
