I (.iisviLLK. Ky.. March 2. life
A trip from Richmond to Ixn-iimlle
in a Pullman car over the Chesapeake
aad Ohio railway, with Rev. (ieorge 0.
Needham and -ieneral Habney H. Mau
ry as traw liing companions, is a very
delightful one even st this season of the
yc*r*
Arriving; at i/ouisvillc at 7:1>> P- M.
Saturday we tire hurried np to the (.alt
House in time for the elegant bain|iiet
of the"i$aptist Social Union," The
beautifully gottcn-up M8M8J was in
French, but though my French was
poor, my appetite was good, and I man?
aged to get throagh very well with the
delightful viands and be ready for *? the
feast of reason and How of soul " which
followed in brief speeches by Rev. Dr.
I. T. Tichenor. of Atlanta; Rev. Henry
Varley, of England, and Rev. George
C. Needham.
Mr. I). L Moody wss expected to be
present and to speak, but Saturday be?
ing his " rest-dsy.'" he stopped over in
New Albany snd preached there?ar?
riving at his hotel in louisville at 12
o'clock that night.
At 9 o'clock yesterday morning I
met him at the door of (he - I-eider
kranz Hall," where his meetings were
appointed to bc held, looking as fresh
as if he had really been resting ever
since he left Richmond.
His hearty greeting to a Richmond
man was : -* Why. here is my rebel
brother -?-, from Richmond. I
am awful glad to see you."
Seeing that Rev. Dr. Witherspoon
accompanied him. the Riohmonder re?
plied : " You seem to have thc fortune of
falling into thc hands of the rebels. Mr.
Moody. l>r. Witherspoon was s com?
rade of mine in the Army of Northern
Virginia."'
?? Yes." said Mr. Moody, ??ami f tell
you they arc awful jolly fellows."
The meeting at 9 o'clock was for
Christian yvorkers. and thc hall was
crowded. Mr. Moody was in line
plight, and made ii profound impression
Ly his sermon.
At 1040 Mr. Moody spoke to an im?
mense crowd of mui-profcssors of reli?
gion, most of them non-church goer-.
mid was said to have held them in deep
attention.
I Your I'oire.-pondiTit heard Dr. Jahn
A. Rroadus preach at that hour one of
his ablest and best sermons.!
At 8*J0 (herc was a service for tan
Ben only and the house wat very inucb
crowded, while hundreds Brent away
unable to get access to the hull.
Mr. Moody's sermon MaOOM ol'great
power, and deep interest yvas manifcstc 1
on the part of the unconverted.
At 6 o'clock Mr. Moody preached to
tlie largest colored church in the cit] .
At 7:30 last night the meetraaj waa
for men only and the hall (holding
3,000) was pucked to it- utmost
capacity.
Mr. Moody was at Ins bnat, and at
the close ol' his powerful sermon and
thrilling appeal there wt re over one
bundled lnen who rose for prayer, a
number of whom nrnfcmed (onieision
in the ?? after meeting.''
At the same hour Mr. Henry Varley,
of Kngland. held an ?? overflow- " meet?
ing at UM W arrin-Mcinorial Presby
terian church, and Mr. Needham one at
the Walnut-Street Baptist church, bath
of which were crowded willi deeply-in?
terested congregations, among whom
wara many ini-niters.
'1 his morning at ID o'clock the hall
was crowded. The ** service of song "
at these meetings is very syveet. the
large choir being led by Professor
Townley and wife, of Cincinnati, wbose
solos and duets are among the sweetest
I have ever heard.
The first topic tot discussion in thc
Convention of Christian Workers was
?flow to Reach Non-Chuick-lioci ?>."
Mr. Moody opened the discussion in
his own inimitable style, in which ne
urged that the churches should have
free pews, and not be afraid that the
rough masses will spoil their eleganl
carpets ; that the poor should he made
to feel at lioiue in out petra, and that
we should go out into the highways
sm) hedges, in the lanes and alleys and
hovels, and ??compel them to anana,'1
snd then give them a trana reception
and Chii-tian treatment when they
come.
Kider Hobbes, of Louisville; hr. l?
W. Muiidhall. of Indiana, and Bar.
Henry Varley followed in admirable
Iii(-minute speeches.
The next topic wa- ?? lloiv lo Pro?
mote Spiritual I.ile in the Churches."
It was opened by Bisnan C. c. Pankie,
af Louisville', in one at the most elo?
quent and tailing speeches ol' the meet?
ing.
Bar. Dr, J. al. Hakdteson, eiJefer
sunvillc, Inii.. :ilnl Kev. (ieorge C.
Neeilnaai made excellent Bro-uainute
-pceches.
Mi. Mond] < lose,1 the discussion with
a powerful address, yvhich .veiled the
wannest enthusiasm af the praacliers,
and seemed to produce th. deepest im?
pulsion on the audience.
Indeed, his closing passage on the
tiiumphaiit life and death sud corona?
tion of Paul wa* the most thrillingly
eloquent appeal 1 ever heard from him.
and it is doubted if it could he .surpassed
in real power by any man living.
After the meeting there were crowds
ol' ladies who insisted on wailing in thc
hall until the afternoon service, and
when the ushers cleared the hall they
lemained standing in the vestibule for
tva hours. 'Ihe hall was pinked bu
hour before the afternoon seri ice. and
hundreds (if not thousands) turned
away disappointed.
Mr. Moody's address on *? The Holy
Spirit " wss one of his happiest ami
most telling efforts, and seemed to touch
and thrill every heart.
lt will be gratifying to Mr. Need?
ham's many friends in Richmond to say
that he is preaching to crowded hons, s
at the Walnut-Street Haptist .lunch,
and that there is every prosjieet of an
extensive revival under his labors here.
Mr. Moody only remains here to
moirow. I.A MILKY.
Improvement* In tn* City.
For the dispatch. |
Bi reoding thc Dispatch of Sunday
last I noticed that you gave an idea of
the proposed expenditure of moneys in
tbe way of improvements of various
kinds. Your article caused nie to sur
iry the vast amount of work already
in cii-mso of construction, which lead*
me to believe leal the proposed work
named in .Sunday's article is. so to
-peak, merely s "drop in the bucket "
compared with what is likely to
be proposed, i a used in a great measure
by the lispjit change in the Adminis?
tration. Why. sir, the old are looking I
younger, business-men are grappling '
their affairs nih more vim and eanu si?
nes, old building- have -nc. limbed to
the workman's bunds and are being
smccedul by new sm) modem stores
and dwi Uings tu ht the uauts of thc
present age. Behold our beautiful
Broad street ! One would hardly re?
cognise her. she is donning; so many
and such gorgeous robes. Her hand is
daily stretching westward, and her va?
cant lois will soon be beyond the reseh
of all save fortune'* favorites. The
beautiful Boulevard leading from the
New-Reservoir Perk must soon be com?
pleted, which will afford a beautiful
drive to and from the city by wey of
Brosd street, which, owing to its supe?
rior width, offer*, unsurpassed facilities
for business, pleasure, and traffic of sll
kind**. Early BntlRR

A NOTEWORTHY INCIDENT?VITA.
LEE'S RECEPTION.
[Washington Post.
An incident of the review especially
noteworthy was the reception of thc
Third division, commanded by General
Fitzhugh Lee, snd embracing thc Vir?
ginia soldiery. General I>ee. who was
dressed in a handsome gray uniform
and rode a magnificent blsck stallion,
received a perfect ovstion all slong the
linc, snd was repeatedly cheered. The
enthusiasm spread to thc grand-stand,
and the ladies wsved their hsndkcr
chiefs long snd vigorously. Thc march?
ing of the Virginians was commended
as very fine. The Fifth Maryland regi?
ment was loudly cheered ; although it
turned out but a few hundred nun. they
marched with their old-time precision .
and soldierly liearing.
THE MU iii ERN CONTINGENT.
;New York H. raid
Thc Third division consisted of s
crest number of military organizations.
This division was commanded by Gene
rsl Fitzhugh Lee and so deafening were
the cheers that saluted his appearance
at every point along thc route that those
on thc reviewiug-s?ind around the cor?
ner might well have thought that a rival
inauguration had been started. General
Lee is a portly, handsome man. with all
of a Virginian's love of a line horse and
all of a Virginian's capacity to sit one.
( lad in thc soldierly gray uniform of
tho Virginia militia ind bowing low over
his charger's neck right ami left as he
went along, he was one of thc most in?
teresting figures in tim procession.
the RRRRL vei.e.
New York Tim. s.
A familiar sound floats down the ave?
nue, lt is neither a shout nor a lusty
cheer, lt comes not from the region of
the lungs, but from thc upper part of
the inoiitli. Shad-bellied southerners
c.in produce it: a nor!hemer never, il
l- known as thc label yell. It is one ol
the shrillest iona?i of which :i human
being is capable, lt is penetrating, and
lintier -oine circumstances, a generation
ago. it may have BBSB positively appal?
ling. There is nothing in it to-liv.
lt.- meaning is BBBplj that the south?
erner knows no oilier BO?e that will ex?
press his sympathies. Its occasion ba*
.onus apparent. The contributions
of southern States toward the cele?
bration of this Democratic esctit are
coming along. They ure detach??uta
ot gav Iv-uniformed men. At
lheir head is the soldierly figure of
? .em ral Fitzhugh hot. He mles like
a centaur. He is a favorite of north?
erners who know him. and he is re?
garded with positive alfection by thc
southerners, who remember him as a
dashing cavalryman. Ile is cheered all
along the avenue, ami the OCeupsnta of
tin- cjaii'l-stantl join in the applause.
Close upon him conns the Virginia mi?
litia, with thc Walker Light Quant, Ute
St. .John's Academy ( adit-, and several
colored companies as special features.
