Every roliglous business man in tho
city, as well as every sinner, will adrer-
tlso In our elty directory. Refusal to do
so will bo regarded as concluslvo proof of
tho truth of the doctrino of total de
pravity. The Rev. D. B. Tumey, tho eccentric
Methodist preacher, continues to sling
about him poetry and prose In n mannor
which is fearful to bohold. His poetry is
worso than Tupper's and his prose would
do no credit to tho column' of tho
Tho most religious person in tho city
is The Bulletin. We beg that tho Sun
will not retort that The Bulletin Is not
n person but n "thing." A cruel rcmnrk
or this kind would wound our sensitive
spirit beyond the nbllty of even Timo to
heal It, nnd wo doubt if Elder, with all his
ehoc-mendlng ability, could heel It.
It is very important thatevcry person
who attends church should do so promptly
fct tho nppointcd hour, so that fellow-wor.
hlpers may cot be disturbed at their do
votions. Any ono who is the owner of
one of Buder Brothers' watches, warranted
to keep correct time, will, havo tho means
of informing himself to a cortaintv ccn
corning tho hour of tho day, and can havo
no excuse for being "behind time" at any
placo or on any occasion.
We wcro instructed to inform tlio
public that Rev. 31r. Mulkoy would preach
in the Christian church Sunday beforo
last, and he did not; that ho would assured
ly preach there last Sunday, morning
nnd evoninjr, and ho did not. Wo deiiro
to jo very precise In the roligious informa
tion wo give to tlio public, so that our
reputation as n religiousjournal mar bo
maintained, but wo fear that mistakes of
this kind will lead tho public to bclievo
wo aro not to bo believed. This would
bo sad. But tlio Mulkoy information was
drawn from n Christian source, and wo
must not bo held responsible for its in
correctness. On Sunday night tho friends of Mr.
Friend held prayer meeting at tho Chris
tian church, tho anti-Friend portion
of the congregation remaining
nbscnt. They hold their prayer meet
ing on Wednesday niirht. If thcro is any
efficacy in prayer, a joint prayer meet
ing, held after tho manner of joint meet-
lugs of tho city council, might do n "power
of good." The burden of tho prayers of
each cf theso belllgoront parties should
bo: "Lord, enable us, miserable sinners,
to forgive as wo would bo forgiven and
to forget m wo should bo forgotten by
Theo.If wo don't quit using our littlo hands
to tear out each others eyes."
Rev. II. B. Thayer preached twlco
on Sunday In the Presbyterian church, a.m.
and p.m. After tho p.m. discourse, which
was able but not up to the ability of tho a.m.
sermon, tho reverond gentleman retired
and the question whs put: "Shall Mr.
Thayer bo called ? " Eighty-eight of tho
congregation voted "aye," nnd two voted
"no. 1 wo other persons, ono a Baptist,
who had no right to vote cither way. and
n sinner voted "no,"nlso. But tho vote
was substantially unanimous. So, wo pre

Tho Rov. M.. Jackson, of tho African
Methodist church, ltt,t Sudy
prenched n very Imprcssivo ser
mon on tho "Evils of Stealing
Bacon." Tho oloquont discourse wnscnlled
out by tho publication in The Bulletin
of tho fact that Henry Bovd. 11 memlinr nf
Jackson's godly flock, had nttcmptcd to
sicni irom 1110 steamer -Jaspor n ennoo full
of bacon. Tho olooucnt dlvlno tnnk r...
bis text " Thou shall not steal.'' He said
this was the command of tho Lord, nnd
should bo obeyed. If an ordinary human
being had said "thou shall steal," ,ho was
of the opinion il would not bo out of order
in a member of his church to lay his hand
on another man's proporty, but no good
Methodist would steal after being told by
tho Lord to let things be. If a mombcrof
tho church should got into nn oflico bo
might stcnl, becauso it wus a question in
serious dispute whothcr it wns bettor to bo
n Christian or n republican, nnd slnco n
porson could not bo tho lntlcr without go
ing for things while In officcj robbing,
whon discreetly done nnd cnrefully con
ceded, might bo tolerated In nn ofllcc-hold-ing
church membor. But, ho added, there
can be no excuso for n hungry nigger who
steals bacon and is caught in tho act. Ho
ought to suffer the consequences and should
not bo allowed to remain In good standing
in tlio church. "Do tho nngels steal 7"
queried tho minister. " No. They nro too
smart. Do tho sornphlm nnd chorublm
nnd sornphs and other celestial human be
ings do thoy steal 7 No. And if they
did, do you think, beloved hearers, they
would steal bnconl Ah, no; they would
go for something else, something liner and
worth more something not mado with
hands eternally in tho heavens." And then
ho prayed that, if Boyd was guilty of tak
ing the bacon, tho lnw should deal with him
relentlessly; but, be added, " blessed Fa
ther, if Hen. Boyd nln't guilty if, good
Mnstcr, Henry didn't take that bacon the
Lord bo with him, and get him out of jail
as He did Peter of old, as UogotDanielout
of tho den of lions and tho three children
out of the fiory furnace. Hire him a law
yer, oh, kind Father, and let me add, that

in Mississippi, ho nnd n Mnjor Thomas
Meanoy were both candidates for tho office
of sheriff. Both gcntlemon ran well, and
it was found necessary to tako up a third
man, Mr. Fred. Alcorn, who recoiled the
nomination. Mr. Corcoran then offered
his name for the legislature, nnd, receiv
ing tho nomination, was elected to that
body. This action engendered ill feeling
between Corcoran nnd Major Mennoy, the
latter asserting that n coinpromiso had
beon effected between Corcoran and Alcorn
by which thu former had been elected.
Saturday night, 18th inst,, the two gen
tlemen, Corcoran and Meanoy, met at
Friar's Point, und in n fight which ensued
Mr. Corcoran, tho Memphis Avalanche
says, was severely whipped. Tlio next
morning Major Mcaney hunted up Mr.

whipping him. This.timo Mr. Corcoran
was prepared, nnd upon tlio Mnjor mak
