Thanksgiving Day. There was as much
enjoyment jetterUay as is usually taken
by our. Western people -on ''Governor's
Sunday," as, Thanksgiving Day is ufcually
called. Down East it is the time when all .
the members ol a family endeavor to gath--
er at the old homestead and is, tlierelore, a
day of great social enjoyment. With us,t
In the West, it is usually ad,y when each
one thinks he must stuff himself as full as
the turkey he devours in order that he
may Jbe i In the highest degree thankful.
We have but few family reunions on the'
day, and the time is put in between, going
to church in the morning,- tp turkey
and oysters and pies and tilings aft dinner;
to sleep ' In 'the afternoon," and "'to suclf '.
amusements as may , offer. . at, night . We ..
have yet to see the first man who wasn't
more thaukful yesterday" for having got
through with it, than "for having, had a
holiday on Thursday. The children were
dismissed from school until Monday.'lliey
were thankful. , ' ' ,
Our churches, or such of them as had
services, were all pretty well filled, and
sermons appropiiateto the occasion were
delivered." " " " ' -J
' The lecture . of Bev. Stephen H. Tyng, ;
j at the St cond Presbyterian church, was "
attended by one of the largest and best
audiences ever gathered in Columbus. 'ills
Eubject was handled in a masterly manner.
He-is a forcible,ggresslve lecturer, aid all
who, heard him express their delight in
unmeasured terms. . ' ',.' " J '
-In the Afternoon the Opera House, wa.
filled With' childrehstp witness- the rpre-"j
sen tat ion or Humpty: Dumpty.. . Most of
them were filled so full of turkey, plumb
pudding and the like that they were un
omfortable, but they managed to laugh at
Tony's capers snd squall when a pistol; was
fired, in a truly delightful manner;' At
night there was one of those crowded .
houses that make a manager's heart go
pit a-pat, every part ot the Opera House
being filled.' 7 ' : ! j
; Tbe ball given by the Independent Sher
man Guards at Ambos Hall was one of the
most successtul affairs of the season: It
was a most enjoyable occasion and one
long to be remembered by the fair maidens
and brave men who tripped the light fan
tastic - , -.' ; : . , , . i
In the morning a large delegation went
over to Urban a to attend Andrew Wilson'.,
sale of town lots. A very great number of .
people were there and the sale, feed, and .
everything else went off very satiatactor y
Tbe property sold higher than similar lota
could be sold; lor lere.: But lew -of our
speculators would pay an average of $300
for. outside lots ol 70 to 75 feet frontage.
One hundred and thirty-six lots were Soldi
netting some $40,000. Those who Went
oyer expecting to get back ln time for the
evening's festivities hero were considera
bly bored. Two irelght conductors tried "
the experiment of attempting to pass with '
their trains oh tbe single track at West-
ville, a tew miles west ot Urbana. This ex
periment bas never been successful, the
result uniformly being a smash up. It was
so in this case. As a consequence Colum
bus visitors to Urbana didn't get home un
til three o'clock yesterday morning, tired,
disgusted and unanimous in their deter
mination to stay home next Thanksgiving.

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 27.
. The Young Men's Christian Association
closed their sessions last night. There' was
a large attendance. The. question, ''Why
do so many churches fail to reach the
Poot?"Vas the sntject of discussion.' -The
sense ot the meeting on this question was
siiratned-rrp in the lollowing resolutions,
offered by Kev. Mr. Morton:
Resolved, That so many churches failed
tftreaoii the poor, because the pootv being
naturally proud and sensitive on account
oftheir poverty, misunderstood thechurch
and do not believe they are welcome, even ,
where such Is the case, but mainly becanse
the pastors, officers and members are too
selfish in the enjoyment of their religion
that they have too little love for souls, too
little consecration to the Master's Work,
too little of that universal divine benevo
lence whii-h is the essential distinguished
element of Christianity, and ". tbe. lciuling
principle which is to till the whole earth
with the knowledge and love of God. !
Resolved further. That this Convention is
deliberately and solcmuly impresseed with
the conviction that the only remedy lor
this evil Is,' first, to bniW plainer churches
and invite poor cordially to them, proving
the sincerity of the invitation and making
it consistant by abolishing the system of
pew renting; second, to seek out the poor
and carry the gospel to them, and pray
witli those who cannot be induced to at
tend regular religious"Bervlces and places
of worship; and lastly, for all professors ol
religion to consecrate their time and in
fluence and wealth more entirely to the
service of Christ, in saving souls.
A collection was then taken up, which
amounted to over $2,000, after which reso
lutions of thanks to various persons were
passed. Brief farewell addresses . were

bonds. " Some time since extensive specu
lative sales were made, of 5-2u's of ISC 2.
The amount ot these bonds in this market
is comparatively small, and holders of
them have advanced the price about two
per cent, above London quotations, ex-,
change and the gold premium being in
cluded in the calculation. It is reported
to be intention of operators for a decline to
cover their sales by importing these par
ticular bonds, which can now be done with
great profit. The scheme, however, would
be de'eated by an advanceln gold. At the
sale ot Government gold to-day bids were
liled lor 1.700.000 and $500 000 was award
ed at 135 50-100 and 135 57-100. ,
