APPEAL, we were unable in our last issue
to make as extensive a report of the
entertainment given by St. Peter Claver
Sodality as we would have liked to do
and, especially was this so in the case of
the remarks of His Grace, Archbishop
Ireland, who expressed sentiments
which met with a responsive chord in
the breasts of all his Afro-American
auditors. Our shortcomings in the re
port, however, were somewhat supplied
by Father Harrison in his weekly con
tribution. We are well pleased with
sentiment of justice and fairness, as
expressed by His Grace, and only wish
that nine out of every ten held the same
opinions, and then there would
longer be a "race problem."

Our work may be washed away, like

in Pilgrim? We can truthfully say, that
he has wrought, peace, unity, love and
liberality in the hearus and these are
being evinced by the life. Easter

God hath wrought such a change in the

that tha cause may go on. The promise

ST. JAMES A. E CHURCH.
Each year St. James' Church grows
stronger. The quarterly meeting last
Sunday reveals to the thoughtful many
encouraging signs. There were 103 who
communed. Some were detained by
sickness, eome were out of the city,
some were detained by circumstances
over which they had no control, and
perhaps a few were absent because they
did not feel worthy. To such I would
say, remember, you have "An advocate
with the Father."

bationers, Miss Cvnthia Reem and Mr.

For thefirsttime in the history of this
city a Colored manW. M. Farmer
Esq.has undertaken to defend a man
for murder in the criminal court.
The case was apparently a murder of
the most cold blooded description.
James Thomas had, it was alleged, shot
and killed Mattie Farrer one night last
August, for no otheroffensethat for call
ing him a fool for having disturbed her
in her slumbers.
The spectators watched the progress
of the trial with the greatest curiosity,
and as they watched the cautious, halt
ing manner of the Colored attorney, his
utter neglect of the usual habit of white
attorneys of abusing the opposing coun
sel and badgering the prosecuting wit
ness, and jumping up every second in a
fury of excitement to "object," they
predicted that he had no more show
than a snowball in July.
But they were mistaken. Luck fa
vored Farmer, as well as nerve, for after
the shortest trial on record of a case of
murder in the first degree, the case
went to the jury and they returned a
verdict of not guilty. t,
The work of impanneling a jury,
which generally takes fully a week, was
actually begun only the day of the trial.
