Authors of thk Apdstlk’s Crked. —Tbe
precise origiu of tliis simplest and most au
cient of all tbe creeds, is involved in some
uncertainty, and bas long been a matter of
some dispute among learned theologians. It
is at least certain that its universal use in tbe
Cburch may be traced back, if not to the
Apostolic age itself, yet to that immediately
succeeding; and there is a very old tradition
that each of tbe twelve articles of the creed
was composed by an Apostolic author. It
is said that tbe Twelve assembled in council
before dispersing themselves to preach the
Gospel throughout the world, to frame the
symbol or watchword of the Christian
Church ; and it will be interesting to many
of our readers to know the Apostle to whom
each article is ascribed. The tradition is as
St. Peter—“l believe in God, the Father
Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.”
Bt. "Andrew—“And in Jesus Christ bis only
Son our Lord.”
St. James, the Great—“ Who was conceiv
ed by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin
St. John—“ Suffered under Fontious Pi
late, was crucified, dead and buried."
St. Thomas—“He descended into hell,”
(or, “ He went to the place of departed
spirits,” which are considered as words of
tbe same meaning ;) “the third day he rose
from the dead.”
St. James, the Less—“He ascended into
heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.”
St. Philip—“ From thence he shall come to
judge the quick and the dead.”
St. Bartholomew—“l believe in the Holy
St. Mathew—“ The Holy Catholic Church,
the Communion of Saints. ”
St. Sinaou —“The Forgiveness of Sins.”
St. Judas Thaddeus—“ The Resurrection
of the Body.”
St. Mathias—“And the Life everlasting.
Amen.” , .
An Adventure in the Oil Region—A
Highwayman Vanquished by a Parson—
The Rev. J. H. Stubbs, of Titusville, related
the following at a prayer meeting in his own
church one day last week, having received
his information from the hero of the story:
On Tuesday last, the Rev. Mr. , of the
Baltimore Conference, was riding on horse
back fro'rn Pit Hole to Titusville. He had
nearly reached Pleasautville, and was trot
ting quietly along, humming a psalm tune,
when a man stepped into his path, and seiz
ing bis horse’s bridle, presented a pistol at
the parson aud demanded his money. Noth
ing disconcerted, the traveller calmly re
marked that he was only a poor Methodist
preacher and had but little money, but would
give up all he had. The lobbef made no re
ply, but maintained his threatening position,
and patiently waited for tbe Conference man
to disgorge. The dominie eyed the freebooter
pretty earnestly, and remarked, with great
solemnity, “You can have my money, my
friend, but for Christ’s sake and your own
soul s sake, give up this business of highway
robbery.” The freebooter dropped his pistol
at his side, and in a voice trembling with
deep emotion, exclaimed, “You can pass
The Savannah and Charleston Cotton.—
A late Northern paper says :
The sum obtained by tbe sale of Savannah
aud Sea Island cotton, sold in New York on
Tuesday by Mr. Draper, the cotton agent,
was more than $1,200,000 in gold. The
whole amount realized during the past year
on account of cotton sales is between six
and seven million dollars. Nearly $0,000,000
of the sum were the proceeds of the cotton
captured in Savannah and Charleston—43,-
500 bales—of which 38,500 came from Sa
vannah. The advance which has taken
place in the price of cotton has added toler
ably to the sum, for which at- least 10,000
bales of it were sold. By postponing the
sale the Government gained about twenty
cents a pound. The whole ot the Savannah,
Charleston aud Mobile cotton taken by the
Government has been disposed of, and the
sales made hereafter will be of cotton col
lected, by the special agents of the Treasury
in the various States of the South.
War Stories.— Among the Confederate
prisoners at Point Lookout, Maryland, there
was a cocoanut-beaded, coal black little con
traband, who had fallen into the Federal
army's hands at Gettysburg. Upon being
told that he would be released if lie would
take the oath, he swore he wouldn’t and
actually stuck it out-
The prisoners, for amusement, drilled the
little uaikie into repeating a number of
answers to a number of odd questions, which
brought master contraband out one day in
strong relief, much to the amusement, and
much to our hero's own astonishment at the
effect his answers produced.
One day the officer of the guard, anew
come-, finding ‘‘contraband” among the
other prisoners, the only one of his race
there, said : “Why, you black little rascal,
what the devil are you doing here, I should
like to know To which quoth Coffee :
“I’se pris’ner war, sah.” “Well, who are
you, anyhow?” said the officer. ‘Contra
band’ got up, gave him the military salute,
and said : “I’so de ionersent cause ob dis
unnatural an’ fatisdal contest!” — N. O.
