A Substantial Farewell. Last evening a
large number of ladies and gentlemen, mem
bers of the Alexander Presbyterian Church and
congregation, assembled at tue house of Mr.
John Peters, No. 1820 Green street, to meet the
Kev. George F. Calu, late pastor of that church,
previous to his departure from the city. It was
a "surprise party in its fullest sense, and the
reverend gentleman and his accomplished wife
were completely overwhelmed. The comnittee
of ladies having the matter in charge did tbelr
work admirably, and if any person present last
evening believed in the old slander that ladies
cannot keep a secret, they were doubtless con
verted to the true theory of ladies' constancy
and fidelity. When Dr. and Mrs. Cain
entered the hospitable mansion of Mr. Peters,
from the houhe of the friends with whom they
were enjoying a delightful tea, and ushered
Into the crowded parlor, they were overcome
with what at once appeared to them the ui mi
festatlon of the remarkable kiudness and love
of a large number of the Alexander membership.
William J. McElroy, Esq., in a neat and ex
ceedingly delicate aud beautiful speech, pre
sented Mrs. Cain with a magnificent bouquet of
natural flowers, among which was artistically
arranged a purse containing a considerable sum
of greenbacks, as a token of the high estimation
in whicn the ladies of the church hold her nod
her talented hustaud. Subsequently. John
Kobinson, Esq., in a well-timed and eloquent
f peech, presented Dr. Cain with several elegant
books, and the little daughter, Maggie, was the
recipient of a number of articles of value and
Kev. Dr. Cain made no response. Ills
appreciation was full and complete. Dur
ing the period of his ministry there he
has done a grand and noble work, and in his
retirement he can look back upon that field,
with Its splendid church freed from debt. When
be was called there from Erie, Pa., less than
two years ago, the church was in debt upwards
of 152,000. Now the subscriptions to the liqui
dating fund aggregate more than that sum, in
cluding the $20,000 donation of the Presbyterian
Alliance of this city, and $12,000 of the subscrip
tions have been paid into the treasury. What
a noble record for a servant of God! Rev. Dr.
Cain deserves well of the Alexander people,
and the thanks of all good citizens. Church
debts, like all other obligations, should bo
promptly paid, and every effort put forth to li
quidate them. In his endeavor at Nineteenth
and Green streets be has been eminently suc
cessful, and blessings must crown his labors.
At the meeting appointed to receive his resig
nation the vote stood 27 to 73. With bo large
and eo decided a majority opposed to taU re
eignlng the charge, we think Kev. Dr. Cain
vhould have remained in Philadelphia. Success
to him ra whatever position he may be placed.
Greater honors are In store for him on earth
and a richer inheritance in heaven.

tow night the 10th annual meeting of the
managers of this Institute will be held. The
annual report to be read states that the Library
Committee, after carefully examining a large
lumber, have purchased 233 new books, which
are now on the shelves. These Include a num
ber of attractive later publications, and make a
total of 4W8 volumes available for use. A main
cause for gratulatlon lies in the fact that there
lias been a large increase In the number of
readers congregating in the reading-roam, as
well as in the number of books loaned. Since
last report the former aggregate is 5575 and the
latter 1480, both of which show an increase of
more than fifty per cent, over that of last year.

Another Public Breakfast at the Continen
tal Hotel Sperch by Kev. Dr. Cathcr, of
Great Britain The Christian Moral
It will be recollected that a1 month ago a
public breakfast was Riven la the Continental
Hotel, at the Instance of the Rev. Dr. Cather,
who explained In full tbe objects of the Syste
matic Beneficence Society, an organization
which Is tbe outgrowth ot the Christian Moral
Science Association. Dr. Cather is the secretary
of the latter body, wnicn is in successful onera-
tion In England, and his purpose ln.cominir to
tbis country was to explain to the clergy of tbe
L uuea etaies tne extreme importance of an orza
nidation such as is proposed, and which, In tbe
opinion of the reverend advocate, is most prac
tical in Ita bearing, and when In operation will
be productive of the best results.
Ibis morning in the Continental a second
breakfast was given. Dr. Cather at 9 o'clock
met about one hundred nnd fifty of our princi
pal Protestant clergymen In parlor C. The
company were taken to the breakfast hall, in
tne ladies ordinary, ana alter grace sat down
to a tul'Slantial meal.
Tbe invitation which brought the dlstlngrulshed
company together reads as follows:

When the report had been concluded Rev. E.
M. Levy returned thanks, and the assemblage
rose and sang standing an appropriate hymn
read by Dr. Cather.
Rev. Dr. Newton then read extracts from St.
Paul's Epistle to the Corinthians, and Dr. Wil
ms offered prayer.
William G. Moorhead, Esq., who presided on
the occasion, then announced in brief the ob
jects of calling tbe apsemblage together, and
said that Dr. Cather, during hit brief stay in this
country, has been eminently successful in
prosecuting the scheme of systematic benefi
cence, a subject which is vast in its influence for
good to tbe Christian Church.
Mr. Moorhead then Introduced Dr. Cather,
who, in commencing his remarks, spoke of the
success which has followed the public break
fasts which have been given in the different
cities of our country. He said that the rapidity
with which the scheme has come into favor is
Eomewhat surprising, but he did not expect a
universal belief immediately. The matter re
quires time. It takes a generation for an oak
to grow; a mushroom springs up in an hour.
Seven years ago the society was started in Eng
land, and at present branch societies are in
operation in the other principal countries of
Tbe speaker then went on to describe what
led him, twenty years ago, to think of the
scheme of which ho was to speak to-day. It
was during the famine in Ireland, and the ques
tion forced itself upon the mind how much a
Christian should keep for himself of this world's
goods and how much he should give to God.
All tbat we possess belongs to God. We hold it
in trust; we owe Him all, and to Him belongs
a part. I am not bound to give where I do not
owe, but I am bound to bestow where I owe.
That is the position assumed in the principles
of the society the simple principle that by our
very nature we are indebted for life's gifts to
the Almighty, and that a percentage of the total
of what we possess belongs to Hlui.
One-tenth cf our effects seems to be the pro
portion which should be given for the further
ance of God's work. The speaker then spoke of
the establishment of the Christian Moral Science
Association as being tbe climacteric of all socie
ties; tbe latest and most approved feature of this
enlightened age. It Is immoral to be covetous,
and this thought should be a prime feature in
the inculcation of an advanced moral science.
Tbe speaker bad implicit faith in the sure
arrival of that day when will be universally
acknowledged the duty of the moral responsi
bility of money. A man that gives one-fourth
is a better Christian and a better business man
than, one who gives only what he cannot avoid
Tbe speaker then denominated science and
the Gospel as the greatest forces of the age.
On one hand we have scientific men striking at
the Scriptures, and on tbe other we have others
who are endeavoriug to harmonize matters.
The science which they seek to teach Is tbe
knowledge of tbe method of working out the
perfectibility of the human race under tae con
ditions of the fall. Surely God has some plan
by which He means to brlug about this consum
mation. The establishes of this association
think they see and understand the plan, and
they seek to put in the possession of the Church
tbe Ideas which God has given phrase to in the
There is more light in the Bible than has yet
come out, and it is by this instrument we must
eeek to obtain that by which we are to work for
the world. The speaker, then went on to dis
claim against the prevalent belief in uniformity.
He thought that It was calculated to drive a
man out of his senses. Variety is the great law
ot nature; as unity is tne aengntoi tne intellect,
so is variety tne aeng.ni ot the senses not a
variety which is the same as confusion, but a
variety that is tbe visible and different manifes
tations of the same thing.
Tbe Methodist Church, of which the speaker
Is a member, is not tne unnatian Church, but
only a partof it. it is one or the different
forms of the whole Christian Church. It is one
of the branches of the great Church; the Pres
byterian is another, the Baptist another, etc.
These different manifestations are perfectly
natural and necessary besides.
Dr. Cather quoted a letter, in which Max
Muller, tbe celebrated philologist, endorsed tbe
purposes or. tne association, ine speaker said
that the worth of this endorsement will be ap
preciated, when it is recollected that M. Muller
is probably tne greatest scholar perhaps living.
He has more influence with the cultured
classes of England In this department of theo
logical thought tnan perhaps any other scholar
of Britain, and Dr. Cather regarded the letter
of M. Muller a symptom, as a siirn. that sys
temutic beneficence is on a sure road to national
Mr. Gladstone, the Premier ol Great Britain,
also has pralt-ed the objects of the association,
These eminent endorsements,' the suetker said.
would bring tbe subject to thousands who would
never nave Known or it unless their attention
were called to it by such authorities.
Tbe rpeaker then entered minutely into the
subject of beneficence, and developed his ideas
of tbe ti'he system, namely, that one-tenth of a
man s Income belongs to God. Perhaps the
proportion may be questioned, but be wanted
the principle to be distinctly understood, be
lieved and practiced. Dr. Cather explained its
practical effects, aud he concluded with a hope
that the great principles of which he necessarily
gave tut imperfect explanulon would be
speedily received by tbe Christian world.
Dr. Gather was loudly applauded at the con
clneion ot his remarks.
Dr. Newton then arose and moved that a vote
of thanks be passed to Dr. Cather for bis able
explanation of the objects of the Moral Science
Dr. Newton also moved that Jay Cooke, Esq.
and otters be extended the cordial thanks o
tbe meeting for providing tbe entertainment.
A vote of thanks was also passed In favor of
Rev. A. M. Morrison, a gentleman who has la-
bored assiduously in furthering the objects of
A young prince (name Kojso Soaguvoora)
from Japan, who has embraced the Christian
religion, made a short address. He was elected
an honorary member of tbe association.

"What Cornea of Minding Other People1
A disturbance yesterday morning suddenly
aroured tbe neighborhood of Karn street, of
which Wm.Mornin is a denizen and a bright and
f tuning light. Air. Mornln first tooK his station
before tbe bonfe to listen to the internal strife.
Catching the warlike Infection, be ventured upon
tbe threshold, and then peered In at the door.
While he was gloating upon the prowess of the
maternal head of tbe family, who bid defiance
to all tbe rest of the belligerent family, he was
disturbed by a youngster named David O'Leary,
aged fourteen years, who ordered him to quit In
stnnter. Whether the lad struck Mornln first,
or Mornln was the aggressive party, is yet in
We know, however, that the fracas was ended
by Momln'8 striking the lad upon the head with
a billet of wood, and knocking him senseless.
This finale caused the utmost consternation.
The Injured boy was carried to St. Joseph's
Hospital, where at the latest accounts he lay
half stupefied, and in an exceedingly critical
condition. He Is not expected to survive.
Mornln was taken in charge by an officer and
committed to prison to await the result of the
injuries he inflicted on his youthful opponent.
MrsTEHiors Disappearance of aw Agent.
Mr. A. E. Kissam, the agent In this city (No.
23 g Bank street) of Hecbt Brothers, of New
York, importers of fancy and notion goods, has
not been seen at bis lodging house, No. 1003
Race street, since 7 o'clock Sunday evening,
0th instant, at which time, after lighting the gas
in his lodgings, he went out of the house. Ilia
friends are in great distress at tbis mysterious
disappearance. An examination of the clothing
and papers In hte lodgings and in his place ot
business gives no clue whatever to his
absence. Everything, on the contrary, denotes
tbat it Is not the result of any premeditation,
which, together with his strictly temperate
habits, Integrity ot chaiacter, and quiet de
meanor, leads to the most serious apprehensions,
regarding him. So far all the efforts of the
police and detective force have failed to elicit
the slightest trace of his whereabouts. He
is very slightly built, 5 feet 3 inches high,
has dark bnir and a smooth and very thin face.
He Is thirty years of ago, but looks very much
younger, and was always neatly dressed in dark
clothing. He had on a low-crowned soft hat,
carried a gold watch, with gold face, and wore
a large seal ring. Any information left with
the Chief of Police, or at Mr. Klssam's lodgings.

Assault upon a Private Detective.
Some months ggo Daniel Kendig, an cx-detec-tive
officer, narrowly escaped being killed by a
lumber of roughs who had treasured up a bitter
animosity against-him. When he had recovered
from the illness which this violence produced,
he became private detective at the Girard House.
Last night, while etanding on the steps of this
bouse, he was again brutally attacked by three
notorious fellows, one of whom is a hackman,
who is usually to be found lounging about the
corner of Ninth and Cbesnut streets. Kendig
was beaten with a blackjack about the head.
He wrenched a billy from the grasp of one of
his would -bo assassins, and by plying it vigor
ously saved bis life. A police officer, at the last
moment, stepped up and took one of the villains
into custody and eacorted him to the Central
Station, but before Kendig could appear his as
sailant was allowed to depart! Here is an op
itortunity for an investigation by his Honor the
