O110 of tho first days of last week a
colored rivm, when jumjiiu from a moving
tram st Mound's Junction, fell, nd had
liotlt feet Iwlly mnnkd ly the v. heels of
the curs. He wiw litiil out on tho depot
pUtfiina for sonio hours before medical
aid was renlereJ Hinl lav there
nearly all day before- some
one w ;a It uml that wouhl five
hitn shelter. He was linally jiven in charoo
of a colore' I family livi.i"; iu tho vicinity,
wh'tre he was still at lust accounts. He was
a btr tnyi-r in tho r.eiohborhood and he re
fused lo tell anything about himsdf; but
bcvcrul th)3 aii) a neyro recooniz'.-d him as
Kiugletoii, the burlier, who asaulteil several
negro women in his bhop on Ohio Levee
some months ago, cut them with a razor in
an ugly urinner and then escaped. It is
sid that one of his legs will have to be
amputated. EfTirts are beirit; rualo to
have him brought to the Infirmary here.
The wedding of Mr. Louis Johnson
and Mios Kite Hewitt which occurred last
Tuesday, was a social event which society
was not permitted to enjoy. It was cele
brate 1 at the residence of the biide's rela
tives on Eighth Street. The ceremony was
performed by Kcv. Scarrit, and tho only
witness were Mr. Angus Leek aud Mis
Gracie Hewitt, the bride's sUter. There
was n demonstration of any kind and
probably no one except those mentioned
in connection with it knew thut the wed
dinu had come off; and Mr. and Mrs. John
son haw quitely taken up their temporary
residebce ou Seventh, in Mrs. Holmes'
house. While the public irenerallv will
be cbagrine I at being thus cheated out of
a pleas'int sensation, thev will none the
less j ,iu Tue Bulletin in wishing the
happy couple a j iyous life during tho re-niaiu'k-r
of their days. It will probably
be but a fe weeks now before Mr. John
son and his bride will leave for their new
home in B-jlle Plains, to where the good
wishes of their many friends will follow
Mr. Burton, aspirant to the candidacy
for the appellate clerkship, arrived in the
city jester lay and will remain to-day to
put up a few pannels of
fense for himself in antici
pation of the Democratic primaries to be
held in this city and county on the 10th
and l tn. rrklay aud Saturday. He is
confident thit his chances fur nomination
are better this year than they were two
years ago. Ik-has already the delegates in
twelve counties of the thirty four instructed
for him and says he is assurre 1 of several
more, which, altogether, would give him a
mgority of five in the convention, on the
first ballot. He counts confidently on this
county, but so does also his most formida
ble opponent, Mr. Wilbanks. Mr. Burton
is undoubtedly a very clever young man,
fully qualified to fill Ihe position to which
he aspires, and the energy witu which he
has striven for the honor is certainly to be
admired. Mr. Wilbanks who is au old and
notably successful campaign worker will
find in Mr. Burton an opponent worthy of
On Sunday evening at the Methodist
Church Rev. Mr. Scarritt gave his introduc
tory sermon on "The Rise and Progress,
General History of the Methodist Episcopal
Church.'' December 25th, 1881, is the one
hundredth anniversary of Methodism, and
it will be remembered and celebrated with
more than usual interest. Mr. Scarritt pur
poses devoting several Sabbath evenings
to giving a synopsis of the organization,
proceedings and aim of this grand aud
noble army, numbering several million
communicauty, which originated from the
meeting of four young gentlemen of Liucoln
College, Oxford England, Mr. Ji hn and
Charles Wesley, Mr. Moiian and Mr.
Kirkman; tho lattor of Morton College.
Last Sunday Mr. Scarrit selected for his
text 1st Peter 2nd Chapter and 10th Verse.
His rem'irka were both interesting and in
structive. He said the society was first
st) led the "Holy Club" and was composed
of the Wesley Brothers with two friends,
who first met in November 1729 in Oxford-
Tim society continued to increase in Eng
land and Ireland. After some years several
Irish emigrants continued their zeal in
New York until led off by the allurments
of the world, when a new arrival from the
mother country, a woman, sieiug the state
of these christians called upon Phillip
Emory to preach to and revive them, which
he did, they meeting together in a loft
which bad been used for making sails. Mr.
Emory was ably assisted in his good work
by Captain Well), a British officer. The
revival work spread until 1784, when a
couferenco was held in Philadelphia and
Thomas Coke was ordained a minister of
the Methodist Church. The first Methodist
Church built in Philadelphia was St.
Gojrge's on Fourth Street. The first cou
ferenco of Methodist composed of a few
preachers have increased to 34,000 itiner
ants, and 79,000 local preachers, with
5,300,000 communicants. M.
