The laths near the stovepipe, in
the Friends' Church, caught fire
Thursday afternoon and caused a
panic for a while. Our citizens rush
ed to the rescue, and the fire was
coon extinguished without much j
damage to the building.
Two English ladies, members of
the Society cf Friends named
Thistlewaithe and Sattlewaithe ar
med in this place Friday the 19tb
inst., from Friendsville, and left

country for the purpose of ascertain
ing the condition of the Society in

A man named Webb, who was ar
rested on the charge of breach of
trust, was brought before Esquire
Garner Wednesday for trial ; but
quietly , stepping oat of the Court
House, he mounted Deputy Sheriff
Freshour's floe horse and dashed out
of town, on the Rockford road. The
officers of law pursued the fugitive,
but did not overtake him until seven
or eight miles from town,and then he
jumped from the horse and escraped

Rev. Mr. Strang, who since the
close of the late civil war in this
country has been residing in Egypt,
engaged in missionary work, deliver
ed a lecture at New Providence
Presbyterian Church Thursday night
last. The house was crowded with
our citizens, who highly enjoyed the
interesting and instructive remarks
of the upe&ker, who spoke of the cus
toms, habits and personal appearance
of the Egyptians, and their moral,
political and intellectual progress.
Mr. Strang, though comparatively
a young man, is a profound scholar,
and is roaster of several languages.
He is a fluent speaker, and so com
prehensive and forcible in his delivery
that the attention of an audience is
attracted as if by some superior mag
netic force. He iu an earnest and
effective missionary worker, and we
hope he may long be spared to assist
in the great work of Christianizing
the nations yet groping in moral
and intellectual darkness.

As once the cry from Macedonia came,
In plaintive accents o'er the Agean pca,
"Help ub, 0! brethren, by that sacred Name
Whose power from sin and endless death
can free ;"
Bo, from the utmost bound of Asia's shore,
Where teeming millions bow to gods of
Comes mingling with tho ceaseless ocean
The same sad cry, "0 ! leave us not
The voice that once in Sinai's thunderi
And Deity in fearful power revealed,
In gentler tones, the will divine hath told
"Go, tench all nations in the harvest field."
Responsive to that call, a Saviour's love
Now sends these clear ones o'et the waters
To dark Idolaters their faith to prove
And tell the story of the Crucified.
Bound in the Spirit, not the gathered tears
Nor pleadings of their loving friends
To shake their constancy or move their
Teat In their high commission tbey

Be inter-twined around each faithful
What thoiyjh shall come the last, fond,
Of nearest kin, and the sad hour to part ;

Will te alike their Father and their God;
Led by his guiding and Almighty hand,
In llira alone shall be their safe abode.
His promise is of old, "I ne'er will leave
Never desprt thee in the time of need :
Man, though a brother, may betray or
Me thou shalt always find a Friend
Here have we met, dear souls, with one ac

Here have wc listened to the sacred word
Explained in all its fullness and its power,
What joyful hymns of praise have risen
In spirit and with understanding sung;
How oft have prayers to God our sure
United come from every heart or tongue!
We meet no more within these hallowed

'Tis yours to go where Christian duty calls
And labor 'ueath a strange, barbaric sky

For souls benighted in a foreign clime,
And He, whose Gospel message now ye bear,
Shall crown your mission with reward
To Him we now commend you may nis
Dwell in you richly more than tongue

Sure Cure for Horse Colic.

October 6, 1877.
Messrs. Sanford, Camberlain & Al
bers, Proprietors of Dr. Hart's
Great Relief, Knoxville, Tenn.:
Gents : I feel it due to the public
to inform yon that I have made an
experiment with your Hart's Relief
that I consider to be worth millions
of dollars to the public. On the 3d
of tbis month, Mr. Jasper Hearill.
rode a fiue young mare to my wool
carding machine and in a few mo
ments she was down rolling with the
colic. Having no medicine at hand
except a bottle of Dr. Hart's Relief
and hearing it said that what was
good for man was good for a horse,
I advised its use and we put a table
spoonful of the Relief in a pint of
water and poured it down the suffer
ing animal, and to onr surprise in
about five minutes she was quiet and
lal right. The next day a mare of
mine while in the plow turning land
for wheat was taken with colic, and
we treated her the same way as we
had done Mr. Hearill's and with
the same result, in about the same
time. I am fully satisfied that the
Relief will effect a cure in all cases
of colic, if given soon after the at
tack. I think the pubjio ought td be
well informed and by all possible
means, and also advised to keep one
bottle at least always on hand for
immediate use. I have no other mo
tive in sending you this except duty
and to alleviate pain,
Jacob J. Pabks
J. J. Parks is a very responsible
man and handed me this to send to
