But oh -what a Had Had thing
To part from my trcusuro forever
And never on earth meet again.
Yea you wrought tho act that has doomed"
To loadasad life until death
Of sorrowing weeping and mourning
And nover breathe one happy breath.
But to-day a deep gulf comco bolweou us
A gulf which ne'er can bo crossed
For to-day I must leave you forever
And forever to you " I am lost."
Up to Mho adjournm
eighty-eight days had boon consumed

Tho actual number of days in which tes-

somewhat less. Of this time eighty-one

recently at the Mecklenburg Centennial

His homo was the attractive resort af all
who delighted in the innocent and ration-

as conspicuous for his fortitude as ho

Our statesmen in times past were ever
in the lead in our national councils.
Our orators from tho days of tho " forest
born Demosthenes" have always borno
away from nil competitors the palm of
true logic and soul-stirring eloquence.
Our poets havo snug strains as sweet as
ever ilowed from tho fountains of Heli-
con or Parnassus. Our historians havo
written with the truthfulness and ele-
gance of tho best of that class of writers.
Our professional walks are adorned with
many men of learning and gieat social
accomplishments. Our women aro as
pure as intelligent as patriotic and as'
bcautilul as any tnac ever avou uie
hearts and sweetened tho homes of men.

One of them was one thousand in num-

The limo consumed in tho trial was
as follows : Pivo days in obtaining a
jury j thirty-five by tho prosecution in
direct testimony and forty by the de-
fense. Tho plaintiff then took up live
and one-half days with rebutting testi-
mony and tho defense one and a half.
Several adjournments havo taken place
oil account of tho absence of ono or tho
other of tho counsel. Before the case is
ended it will havo extended over livo
mouths from tho first of January to tho
first of June. Tho average time taken
by either sido was 43i days but tho real
time used by tho defense is considerable
in excess of tho plaintiff. Allowing a
hundred days the limit although it Avill

Tho actual number of witnesses called
on both sides was 113 of which 33 were
called by tho plain lilt' and 80 by tho de-
fendant. On the direct examination tho
prosecution called nine witnesses and tho
defense 72. On the rebuttal tho prose-
cution more than doubled tho number
that had been summoned on their side
for tho direct for they ciillcd 22. They
also called two witnesses in sur-rebuttal
making 2-1 in all. The defense called
eight witnesses in sur-robuttal but it
must be understood that tho total of 113
includes tho one or two who gave their
testimony by deposition and that those
who where called on the direct and again
summoned on tho rebuttal are counted
as different witnesses as in effect they
really aro. Tho actual number of differ-
ent porsons called was about ono hund-
red. The average length of the exam-
ination was a little over ono witness per
day. Had the hours of tho court been in

10 A. M. to 4 or 5 P. M. and would havo

would havo entirely absorbed tho timo
of the counsel and allowed them no timo
to attend to their other business.

has been said about the religion of the
black race; and they havo a religion
after a sort. But as mass thoy aro in-
clined to superstition and aro apt to bo
swept headlong into sonsuous sin by thoir
emotions. While they aro religious they
aro not moral. Wo speak of the major-
ities tho multitudes. True there aro
noble exceptions and theso prove
tho possibility of a better condition for
the raco as a Avhole. But at present
thero is a sad lack' of virtue oven among
professod church members. Tho colored
churches both of tho Baptist and Method-
ist schools (and theso include nearly all
who pretend to any religious faith) are
almost without discipline on some points
of common moraljty. Tho seventh com-
mandment is almost a dead letter in
many communities. Its observance is
exceptional rather than normal. Touch-
ing this sin of uuehastity tho negro in
his presont condition is alarmingly in
need of tho Gospel. Tho race is deteri
orating and will ultimately becomo ex-
tinct unless thero is a check to licen-
tiousness. Already tho statistics of po-
imlation show an astounding decrease of
births during tho past six or eight years."
