Our devout heart has been sorely vexed
by the conflicts between tho members of
the congregation of tho Christian church
of this city, in which conflicts the form of
tho godly Hay 'wan continunlly seen
conspicuous, rushing in battle array upon
tho unoffending but not passive pastor of
tho congregation, Rov. Mr. Friend. Ovor
this spectacle wo hnvo wopt, havo
shod mora tears probably than tho discon
solate Hebrews when they hung their
harps on tho willows and sat down by n
rlvor, tho namo of which has oscapod our
memory, and wopt over tho distressed con
dition of their iniforttinutu country. In
deed, wo doubt if Niobo wero moro tearful
than wo. Sho could'not have boon, unless
sho woro nil water. Wo used nil our ef
forts to nllny tho strife, nnd wrestled with
tho d'imon of angor which hnd captured
Hay, body nnd brecchci; and, be it snid to
our credit and iu compliment of our grout
infltionco in tho church, wo got tho old fol
low down, nnd havo brought peace und
brotherly lovo into tho ranks of the
saintly belllgorents. It Is all right now.
Tho llavltcs havo Vioun allowed lo tako
possession of tho church, nnd have glvon

thoy hurlol maledictions, letters certifying
thnt they nro membors of tbo Christian
church In full fellowship and entitled to
tho good offices of tho righteous in all
climes and under ull ciicumstanccs. And
now, tho friends of Mr. Hay worship iu
tho church building, while the frionds of
Mr. Friond worship at tho minister's resi
dence, holding sorviccs every Lord's dny
at 11 o'clock a. m., and praying Wednes
day evenings. And thus ends ono of lho
most warmly contested religious wars of

Thoro will bo a more lively contest for
tho olllco of police magistrate than for
either of tho othor city offices. Judgo F
llross has announced his determination to
be a candidate for re-election, and tho
people who do not admiro him nro busy
iu an cil'ort to induco sumo person to enter
tho arena against him. Mr. Josoph Mc
Kenzio is mentioned as tho leader of tho
opposition to tho Judge, and those who
know Mr. MoKonzlo's ability us nmnnlpu
lator of political wires in a municipal can
vass and his cnorgy nnd determination
in till his undertakings, must
readily porccivo that tho road before
Bross is not an easy ono to travel, In
tho courthouse, also, Judge Bross will find
vory dotormlncd opponents, and also
among tho Influential democratic lawyers.
Tho county olllcors and democratic law
yers wero oil very anxious to socuro his
olectlon ns County Judge, nnd wero very
much disposed to rend us out of lho dom
cratic party because wo had an Impres
sion that some othor man would mako n
bettor judge, but now thoy aro of tho opin
ion thnt ho would adorn tho walks of pri
vate llfo moro than public office, nnd fool
somewhat disposed to road us out of tho
democratic party becauso wo think tho
Judgo will "do" very well. You see,
times chango and mon chango with them,
and sometimes men In office don't net n.

Tho levcadid not havo a great deal
of business transacted on it yesterday,
probably owing to tho cold weather. Still
there was enough dono to prevent it from
Tuesdny night wns nbout tho coldest of
tho senson. A high wird prevailed and
everything frozo tight. Yesterday there
was but littlo change in tho weather from
that of Tuesday night and it is feared
that it will have a dnmaging effect on the
Ohio river nbovo here. Tho sun shone nil

Cairo Short Lino.
llio Missouri Democrat of the 13th
says, "Capt. Philo Young telegraphs that
tho Great Republic will not load at Cairo
for a day or two, and that rites and river
aro low and fuel high." It is plain to bo
seon that some ono was not very well
posted as regards tho Great Republic, for
sho has "stuck out her poster" nnd It soys
"to leavo on the 15th Inst." As to tho
price of fuel -wo can safely say that coal
can bo bought cheaper ot Cairo at the
present timo than at any placo on tho Mis
sissippi river. '-Tell the truth, &c."
