About two weks ago the Met'lodist
Sunday-school was the largest that has been
since the old church was burnt, and last
Sunday the choir of that church furnished
as good music as lias been given since
the new church was built. The music has
been excellent ever since the present choir
was organized, but last Sunday one song
was sung by the Sunday-school and the
balance by the choir. Mrs. Mort Hodge,
the leader, has a most excellent voice, and
so has Mrs. George Hodge and Miss Jennie
Caldwell. Mrs. George Childress is the pres
ent organist, and she is a most excellent
one; and when she was small we noticed
her tine talent for music, and then thought
that some day she would fill the position
which she now so ably fills.
Mr. James Hodge recently called our at

Clayton, editor of the Southern Cultivator,
was struck on tbe legs, but not perma

chimney lias survived the decay and 'de

met with. For many years it has been
there by itself, a monument of the past.
We hope Messrs. Kuhn & Turpin will gener
ously let it remain, a landmark of tbe past.

needed here. The Professor delighted the

THE AKT GALLERY.
For this twenty-fifth annual commence
ment of the Athenieum, there was an ex
cellent display in the art gallery. The
splendid museum, a room enriched with a
vast collection of natural curosities was used
for this purpose. Every pupil of this insti
tution was represented nv a specimen of
penmanship. Miss Adams, who has charge
of these classes, has succeeded in teaching
most il not all of ber pupils to write with
grace, beauty aud elegance. The display of
pict i? resin pencil, crayon, oil and water
colors was verv fine, inasmuch as we are as
sured that it must have cost Mrs. McKinney
and her pupils a world of patient efforts to
accomplish so much in a single session.
Miss Mackenzie entertained the patrons
of the Athenieum with one of her happiest
soirees, i ne nan was brilliantly illumin
ated and every seat was occupied, before the
time announced for the performance to be
gin. Prof. C. W. Bennett composed 4Jie
music of the grand entree especially lor this
occasion, and when the beautiful young
ladies, about twenty-four in number, ad
vance u into tne nan, it reminuea one or tbe
brightest descriptions of fairy laud. Where
all of the pieces were so tastefully arranged
and so exquisitely rendered, it is impossible
for us to decide which was the best. Several
Pieces of instrumental music, by the pupils
of the accomplished Miss Kate Thomas,
were perfect gems of thought and expres
sion. Many of the pieces in the programme
we noticed, were arranged at the Athena-um
and perhaps this accounts for the gusto with
which they were received. We are a Metho
dist, aud not partial to dancing, but the
dancing of the beautiful young girls Sug
gested anything else than evil.

expressed iu these columns, that the Athe
naeum is a most excellent school, richly de

To the Editor of the Herald and Mail:
We feci that we are all due the ladies of

little humorous anil social criticism of the

of the ladies here, whose charms aud real

are co-eqnal and co-extensive wit h those of
any land, or of any clime under Heaven s
canopy; aud the gentleman who denies or
doubts it, as intimated by our friend, Vuxpo

true worth and greatness of a true lady, in
the full sense ol the wont. That detestable
remark that "he feared to go too near Na

To the Editor of the Herald and Mail:
Inear a century ago, when Doctor Stough
ton lived in Philadelpha, an old fashion
Baptist minister visited Uiat city and was
invited by Doctor S.to preach in the Sausom
Street meetinghouse. The old gentleman
dressed lu his sheep's gray aud nui tons td
match, went through the preliminary exer
cises very acceptably, but when became to
the preaching, feeling that he must be par
ticularly fine, he was in danger of making
au entire failure. The Intelligent audience
could hardly restrain their laughter. Doctor
S. was silting on uettles.iind inwardly ask
ing what should be done? Knowing that
the old tentlemiui was . "a good deal ol
man wheu he was himself, ' the Doctor
uervously pulled tne speaker by the coat,
audlhurriedly whispered Brother! brother!
give it to them bush fashion." The old gen
tleman swung on into ine same style in
which he preached in the woods of western
Pennsylvania, and was then perfectly irre
sistible. As we have not got Dr. C's una
bridged dictionary by our side, as "Rattler"
has when he writes, we must give it to him
("liaiuer )"uusii iashiou. Before we pro
ceed auy farther, we wish to ask "Rattler"
if he professes to be a clairvoyant, or, was
you in a trance wheu you wrote your last
communication? Mr. Editor anil readers,
het.r what he said: "We see at Bristow, a
package of Dr. Hall's magic compound ad

IMtmlMlt. nf 1v nnh CriMilr " A, Intlm nonlriiirii
being at Bristow, this is fictitious, aud I can
prove it to be so by the postmaster. I am
very reliably informed that "Rattler" was
uot at Bristow when ho wrote his last com
inuuicatlou; and as there has never been
any thing of the kind at Bristow, wo wish to
know of the "Rattler," how did he see the
ack age? Even if the package was there,
iow oould you soe the package at the time
of writing your communication? 1 1 is some
thing peculiarly strange, that "Rattler,"
was at home, or some where else, (not at
Bristow) and as he said, could see the pack
age at Bristow, while visiting. Verily he
was in trance! The would be facetious"Rats

He recommended a compound nf mullein
and said that I was very lond of that weed.
As to this, we would say, that we have never
yet, went to, or near the line of Maury and
her sister, Hickman, to try to obtain John
son's compound, and fail to obtain such a
compound. Neither did we ever try to win
a sparkman In playing the game of the
"lover trying to woo," and failed to win the
game, and lose the prize. He said there
were several young bloods that wished to
become patients of Dr. Hall. We think that
"Rattler' needs an application of Dr. Hall's
"magic compound"not upon his face, oh no,
for there Is plenty of hair there, but lo the
filace where '-there Is no parting t here." We
lavea desire to get up a ooriespondence
with no one through the papers, and cut and
lash with them in such a way, and to spend
our time with such trilling; but when we
are cut and lashed at, we must defend our
self, if we can. "An eye for an eye, and a
tooth for a tooth." If auy one plucks an eye
or a tooth from us, we must get one of
thelr's if we can. We never stri ke the first
blow, but being struek r.t, we strike. The
next timo you strike, you should have a
cause to strike, ank know positively, that
you have got one.as you struck before with
out a cause, whatever. So strike again
"Rattler," if you wish, the ofter.er the blows
are repeated, the more severe thev will be.

We have neither time nor space this u-eelr
to give as full a renort. nf th. ct.ih ;,.nt im
as it deserves we leave.Uiat for next week.
We will have to content ourselves for the
present with giving the names of the visit
ing gentlemen who examined the classes:
Prof. IL E, Binford. of Mt. Pleasant: Prof. J.
S. Beecher, of Columbia; Prof. O. it. P. Ben
nett, of Columbia; Prof. J. A. Creighton, Mr.
E. H. Hatcher. Dr. Mitchell, Dr. Templeton,
Rev. C, F. Williams. Prof. Anderson, who
examined the girls as thoroughly as they
would have examined boys. Wednesday
night came the grand concert, which was
Kfiial to anything ever heard in Columbia.
The able corps of music teachers, and the
pupils, were ably assisted by Profs. Bennett
and Seavy, Dr. Herndon, Mr. Yoest aud
others. Five of the pieces were arranged by
Prof. F. H. Smith, one of which he com
posed. He is not only a thorough uasterof
music, but is an able financier, and an ad
mirable teacher. The selections of music
was from great composers, and admira
bly executed. Five pianos, horns, ham
find bass violin, rreouentlv formed mi or
chestra of great beauty. We can Dot even
give a programme, for want of space.
Yesterday morning, the regular examina
tion exercises were in term Died, aud Mrs.
Smith's class in Elocution gave specimens
ot her workmanship. Miss L. MeGaw re
cited a temperance poem, very well ludeed,
and Miss Mary Loouey, descended from a
race of orators, recited "Hiawatha's Woo
ing," in a manner so simple, true, unaffect
ed and sweet, as to command the applause
of all lovers of true elocution. Her voice is
not strong, nor extraordinary, but her
training, aud capacity to thoroughly appre
ciate a poem, are far bevond the average
school girl. Mm Lizsie Porter reiul a very
entertaining essay on society. Misses Har
ris, Ded man, Davis, Blackburn, Mcintosh,
also reaii. Mrs. R. D. Smith is recognized
as a fine elocutionist, and as. a successful
teacher of the difficult art.
. The AUicua-um was a quarter of a century
old yesterday, aud who cau foretell its suc

three such youug meu as the Principal,
Capt. It. D. Smith, Dr, W. A. Smith and

To the Editor of the H- rnld and Mal:
I suppose vou think I have la-en a long
tiiue lultiiliiig my promise to write. Tho
only excuse 1 oiler is Unit it would bo use
less for me to send mat ter lor publication
that would lie of uo earthly interest to your
numerous readers, i bis has been a great
fault with many correspond.iiils, and 1 In
tend either lo avoiil it or remain silt nt.
But iu a cultivated, church-going and pie
ty-loving community like Columbia, I
know there are hundreds wno are nrerest
ed in gospel work as advanced by t he Young
Men's Christian Associations of ihe United
States and Great Britain. Kucit 1111 associa
tion of Christian workers are- in session
here at this writing, represent log a great
proortion of Isith the Old ami ew vt onus.
The convention is eoiiixiscd ol Ihe most
Intelligent young men of the churches, who
aredomg noble and acceptable work iu tho
lord's vineyard. To my mind il is through
this means that the Itineracy is to he per
petuated, for of late years we have been
drifting too much toward centnili.al Ion lu
religion as well as politics that is, the
Christian Church lias not reached fur
enough into the highways, by-wa.s and
hedges of Satan's kingdom. In this Held
the youug meu of our Christian Associa
tions have been eminently suecesslul, and
are now marching 011 from victory to victo
toiy, until finally, 1 believe, their work will
lie crowned by ihe salvation 01 minions.
They are working upon the broad 111 bin
principle that Jesus i nrist s ihoih.-uiciii was
for all, not a jtartn idar rla. i he si ranger
when he comes to the city, the gambler, lh
drunkard, the characterless one, an 1 even
t.iose wiio have been so much neglected by
near-sighted Christians, (I menu l.illen wo
