by a tine audience to lUton to the lecture
of Mr--. Martin in reply to Mr. Ohorly.
Tho exercises were opened by Mrs. Can

The lecture was ilriely read by Mlss
Thompson, an unfortunate defect of vi

reading It her-elf. The lecture was a
fine literary production, abounding in
humorous sallies and strong arguments.
It was listened to witli marked attention

We, the undersigned, having carefully
compared the llov. Dr. Thayer's sermon
on "The Dew" with tho article read by
Mr. McKee at tho Parlor Concert, from
tl) pen of Dr. March, hereby testify that
they are ticoentirtly dill'ercnt productions.
Wellndtlutthereisbtit little similarity
either In the argument or In the manner
of presenting it. They are, In fact, two
distinct and widely ditlereut treaties upon
tho same .subject. S. D. Ari:us,
I consider it an act of justice to stato
that I was pre-ent when the above com
parison was made, and am astonished
that any one who heard .Mr. Thayer's
sermon delivered, should have claimed
for it any similarity to tho article above
referred to. N .u.r. 1-. McK r.K.
In addition to Hie above, permit mo to
say, that, until yesterday morning, l never
saw Dr. March's article on tho "Dew;"
never saw an extract from It and did not
know that It was in existence. Allow mo
also to state that I have never seen a ser
mon on thu "Dew" Irom tho pen of any
minister. H. 11. Tiuvim.
In a recent Issue of the Hi'i.lctin, we
copied an article from the St. Louis
Vtmocmt, giving thu particulars of tho
release ot a man named .T. M. Gay, from
tho Illinois Stato penitentiary, who had
been Incarcerated lor tho murder ot a
gentleman named Farley. The article
stated that Gay had always been a quiet
and peaceable man up to tho time of his
trouble with Farley, who provoked liliu
to the deed. Since the publication ol tho
item, however, we have been Informed by
a well-known gentleman of this city, who
is acquainted with tho particulars of the
atl'alr, that Gay Is a bad man, and that ho,
(Gay) went to tho house, of Mr. Farley,
and called him out, and shot him in tho
dooryard without any provocation what
ever. Our Informant also tells us that
Farley Is not tho only man whom Gay
has shot at In his lifetime, lu Pulaski, but
tlmt ho missed his aim on tho first at

was excellent, and tho solo,
by Miss Anna Merger. was
never surpassed by any artifct In this city.
She was repeatedly npplattdcd. The
character songs, by Mr. McKee, were
really praiseworthy, and he was popular
with all. Tils "Tooralooralle" will not
soon be forgotten. Tho bell duet, by

Knnoit Hci.lktin : A very pleasant
gathering of young folks mot at the resi
dence of Mr. tireely, last Friday evening,
March Jith. It was Intended as a surprise
parly for Master Harry, but some little
bird li;id whl"pcred In his ear ot what bo
might expect, so that ho was not so much
surprised us pleated to meet his young
friend'. Invitations had been Issued to
about fifteen couples, but the evening
being stormy, not so many arrived. Of
course dancing was tho principal feature
of tho entertainment, but games and
other amusements were provided
for those who did not trip
the light fantastic toe. Miss
Annie Alvord played some very sweet
pieces on the piano. A very elegant ta
ble was spread icecream, delicious cake
of different varieties, oranges, apples
and choice confections. After full Justice
had been done, dancing wiii again re
sumed, and kept up until a late hour.
Mr. and Mrs. Greeley were untiring in
their eilbrts to make everything pass oil
pleasantly, and with due appreciation ot
the ph-a-itrc allbrded, thu young ladles
and gentlemen desire this communica

The controversy which ha been going
on through thoseveralnewspaiiersof this
city, between Mrs. P. A. Taylor, County
School Superintendent of Alexander
county, and Mr. M. It. Hnrrell, editor of
the Cairo Gazdte, has given rise to a
good denl of talk in papers outside ol
tills city, of which the St. Louis Globe is
one. In giving it opinion of the matter,
that journal says:
"At the hist election In Illinois. Mrs. P.
