mg that the people received at the
hands of Brother Thomas seems to have
done them good. Elder Henderson
said Sabbath evening, "Ail congrega
tions of Christians where the pure Word
of God' is preached and the sacramemts
duly administered, are of the body of
Christ and a part of the Holy Catholic
Church. In the sense of congregations
there can be many churches, but there
can be but one gieat church, 'The
Church' is the aggregation of all chris
tians, Christ is the head. Each chris
tian congregation should therefore en
tertain toward all others the most
hearty feelings ot love and good will.
If all agree in the seven 'Ones,' be
tolerpnt concerning minor things. Tne
Baptists and Methodists are the only
two great religious bodies of Colored
people on earth, they are both strong,
both have done great work, and when
intelligently guided the members of each
are the best ot friends. Shame on the
hearts that would stir up strife between
ancient friends. We should not quarrel
with our sister denomination because of
the doctrines she holds and she should
not quarrel with us but when it comes
to a question of helping the cause of
Christ, we should drop everything else
anc make Christ Supreme. So I believe,"
said the Elder, "aud I have thousands of
warm filends among all denominations.
I will fight bad men, but will never do
anything but help any Christian church.
I received a divinity course under a
Protestant Episcopal clergyman, and
had as a foundation for it, thorough Cal
vinistic training. I have spent years
studying the creeds and rituals of every
othodox church and know what the
leading minds in each believe, I only
pity the the smaller fry who simply
know enough about their own doctrines
to quarrel with others. I prefer my
church above others, but some of my
beat friends have a different choice, we
live in peace and each expects to meet
the other in heaven. Let the churches
here continue in peace as they always
have, and let them be to our people a
bulwark that enemies cannot surmount.
When our protracted meeting is over,
if we have another 115 converts, I will
say to them, 'now you are christians,
that is what we worked for, go now to
whatever church vou thing will best
suit you,' I will not rush them into our
church before they have a chance to
think it over. But ten of our 115 have
backslidden." The new officers of the
Sunday school were installed Sabbath.
T. H. Lyles, the retiring superintendent,
again displayed his magnanimity by
giving them such encouragement as but
few ever give successors. His whole
course has shown him to place the wel
fare of the church above everything
else. He leaves the school stronger
than it ever was before and witn a good
library, new chairs, desks, etc. A.J.
Bell, his successor, has been during his
membership a most earnest worker.
He is one of the converts in the great
revival and because of his earnestness
is bound to succeed. Sabbath evening
ten dollars will be distributed among the
ladies, every lady present is to receive

Washington, Feb. 11,The Hon.
Thomas W. Grimes, Washington. Sir I
was surprised to learn through the pub

right to dine with my friend, Mr. Na

Riggs House on Monday evening, mak
ing the occasion the subject of a disa

inoppertune time, when this distasteful
subject is being agitated both in the
Senate and House of Representatives, as
well as by the National convention of
representative Colored men, to the dis
grace of the South.
While I would impress upon you the
fact that there is no disposition on my
part nor the part of any self-respecting
Colored man to force social equality, yet
we do demand as citizens of the Nation
the right of accommodation in all of tbe
public institutions of the country,
especially when our behavior is in
keeping with polite, and gentlemanly
manners. In this instance your behav

was unbecoming a National Representa

right as the guest of a gentleman your
equal in every particular, and at a hotel
where I have been accommodated more
