Koiii'.kt I'. I'umtkr, superintendent ol
the coming census, is drawing back iu hi
hole with all the agility commensurate
with his dignity. Evidently Roliert
started out with the idea in his head that
the office of stiicrintendent of the census
was nn autocratical one second not even
to that of the Czar of all the Russia. A
little later and the great American coplc
had entered u protest and had politely
sat down on the gentleman. Since then,
to use the parlance of the gambler, he liar
been "hedging" and it n highly probable
that his list ol insulting questions vt ill Is
withdrawn. Richmond did honor to the memory ol
of General Kolicrt 15. Lee on Thursday

WHAT THE COMMISSION
ERS HAVE TO SAY.
ONLY KIND WORDS FOR ASHE
VILLE AND THE PEOPLE.
UlfTeretit Interview From Mniiv
source Dr. WIlNon' Charm.
The Charleston World contains the fol
lowing, which is taken from an interview
with the Rev. Dr. Thompson, one of the
commissioners to the Assembly:
A rcKirter for the World called Uhui
Dr. Thompson yesterday and asked for
his impressions about the meeting. Dr.
Thompson begun by referring to the
place being most beautifully situated.
There nature is in its most attractive
loveliness, and in every direction arc pre
sented most magnificent views. He
spoke of the unbounded hospitality of the
IKople, who spared ncithertiinc, effort or
money to make the stay of the commis
sioners agreeable. He then spoke of the
arrangements made by the officers of the
church for the convenience of members,
and the dispatch of business.
Dr. Thompson concluded by saying
that the Assembly was one of the most
delightful he ever uttended, and that
from the present outlook the future is
full of the brightest hope for the South
ern Presbyterian church. Dr. Thompson
staled to the reporter that Col. Steele, of
the Battery Park hotel, a former Cliar
lestvninn, extended daily courtesies and
hospitalities to mcmbersof the Assembly,
and in every way showed himself the
right man iu the right place in a great
The North Carolina Presbyterian, pub
lished at Wilmington, says:
The General Assembly is over! This
highest court of our church adjourned on
Saturday. There was decided talent and
there was great energy among the breth
ren gathered together to do for the best
interests of our church and of Zion nt
lurgc, and this among theclergy not only,
but the non-clerical constituency ns well.
Taken all in all, it wns a body represent
ative of the mental and spiritual brain
and bra wn if we may use such figure in
this connection of our church. The As
sembly was royally entertained, of this
there is but one opinion. The good Pres
byterians of Asheville surpassed them
selves in the Invishness of provision for
the comfort of their guests and in happy
manner in which that provision was dis
played. The Christian Observer, which con
tained so handsome a tribute to Ashe
ville in its issue of last week, gives two
columns more this week to the same sub
ject. It gives a very accurate picture ol
the church, which was prepared expressly
for this purpose, and publishes a historic
sketch of the church, giving the latest
statistics of its growth and then it adds:
We have never seen the churches of a
city so centrally located, and yet so quiet
is the three that are on Church, street in
Asheville. They arc only aliout three
hundred yards from the court bouse, or
the principal places of business, and yet
lcimr here in the midst of the former cem
etery, they are out of the noise of busi
ness or street cars. Around them there
s a beautiful stillness. The Presbyterian
liurch bv recent additions has been
made an exceedingly convenient house.
The organ is placed behind the pulpit, but
the oriranist and choir are at one side,
nt the left of the preacher, Instead of be
hind him. The pulpit is inexccllent taste
and the finish of the interior iuonk grain
ing is attractive.
Aswedrnwnear to the close oi tne
sessions of the Assembly, a brief rctro
sHTt is natural, and may be convenient
to the render.
The first thought that comes over the
mind is the beautiful illustration afforded
liv this Assembly ol the power of divine
grace in the human heart, Here we hnve,
lieihans. one hundred and sixty commis
sioners from the different presbyteries,
men ol diverse origin, vnriant education,
if distant residence, and different wnysol
thinking. They nrc brought together to
liscuss that which is ol umiortuncc and
value far greater than money. They feci
i lint their own usefulness on earth, and
the salvation of souls in eternity, is to be
iflectcd bv the decisions here reached.
l ucre is every incitement to excitea teei-
ings or bitter words. 3 tit in nil the pro-
eeiliiiL'S we have not licurd an HI tempered
word, or seen an illtcmnered expression.
Would this lie so among idolaters.'
Would this be so even among men of the
world? What hath God wrought to
produce such gentleness in nil these
hearts that among so many there should
