His very moderate prices give general satisfaction. His stock of nice woolen and cotton hosiery is very good, to which he calls the attention of all those who want a good article.

Tvreiity-Nlntli Annual Session. 1IBST DAY. Sdllivan, Ind., Wednesday, Sept. 20tb, 8 a. u., I860. The Conference assembled in the base- . ment of the M. E. Church. Bishop Baker being absent, on motion of Rev. James Hill, Rev. S. T. Gillett was called to the chair. The religious exercises were conducted by C. D. Battelle and W. V. Daniel. The roll was called, and 7. ministers answered to their names. The Conference proceeded to ballott for perma nent President from amongst the Presiding Elders. Wm. C. Smith received 36 votes, C. B. Davidson 13, James Hill 1G, and scat tering it. A second ballot resulted in the election of Wm. C. Smith. In taking the chair Mr. Smith made a short and appro priate address.. Wm. Mi K. Hester was elected 1st Secretary, .1. J. Stallard 2d, M. M. C. Hobbs 3d. and Chas. Cross, 4th. The luurs for meeting and adjourning were fixed at 8 and 11 J A. M. E. L. Kemp, W. F. Harned, and Albion Fellows were elected Conference Stewards The following lay Stewards appeared, pre sented their credentials, and were introduced to the Conference : Elisha Evans of'Green- astle District, Wm. F. Browning of Bloom ington, Mr. Springer of Vincennes, Dr. Patton of Patoka, and John Hancock of New Albany. The usual committees were appointed on Public Worship, Necessitous Cases, Anni versaries, Missions, Education, Memoirs, Tracts, Sunday Schools, Sanctity of the Sabbath, Bible Cause, Slavery, Temperance, Ministerial Support, Publication of the Minutes, Post Unices, and New York Book Concern.

Having en joyed the pleasure of listening to the re hearsal last evening by the Choir of the Vine street Presbyterian Church, we feel that we can safely promise our citizens a rich treat to-night at the Concert if they choose to avail themselves of it. The se lectioj of music is suprb, and the execu tion, although by amateur, corresponds with the selection. We trust those who have taken this nuttier in charge will be cheered with a full house, and that the chuivh, for which they labor, will reap a substantial benefit from the undertaking. It is not often that our people have the opportunity of listening to a concert of good amateur musicians, and it will be a fair test of the musical taste of our citizens, to ob serve the extent to which they turn out to night. The gentlemen aud ladies who compose the choir, have given much of their time ami attention to the improvement of them selves in the "divine art'7 aud for the eleva tion of musical tasto amongst us. They deserve to be encouraged. We say to all lovers of music, go to the Home Concert to night. For those who are not lovers of music, we quote Lorenzo's ad dress to Jessica, in the " Merchant of Ven ice." " There's uoaght so stockieh, hard, and full of rage, But music for the time doth chant his nature : The mau that hath no music iu himself, 2s.,ris net moved with conco.-d of sweet souuds, Is lit for treasons, strangfms. and spoils : The motions of his spirit are dull as nhht. And hfs affections dark as Erehu-i : Lai no such man be trnstfd.' Extraordinary Attractions At the Fair To-day. The Programme of the Fair to-day (Thursday) is very attractive, and such as to collect a huge crowd from the City, country, aud abroad. There will be some very fast stock from abroad, and trotting under saddle and in harness. The Grand Tournament, in emulation of the deeds of ancient chivalry, will be enacted, in which brave knights, ans puer el sans reproche, will contend gal lantly for a handsome diamond ring with w hich to encircle thij linger of some " Iadye fair." The deeds enacted on " the field of the golden cloth ' will be eclipsed by the valor and gallantry of Hoosier Bnyards, Saladins, and Richards Cieur de Lion. Then there is the competition for the Citizens, Premi ums for Buggy aud Draft Horses. Then the solid and the sentimental exercises of the day will be closed by the extravaganza of the Scape Grace Fantastics on foot fancy "beyond compare." The transition from the sublime to the ridiculous will be provocative of cachinnation aud promotive of digestion. Go, all, to the Fair ; see the sights and hear the sounds ; encourage the Associa tion iu its laudable work : rejuvenate your selves with exercise and amusement; and elevate yourselves by means of knowledge, substantial and tasteful. THE DISTRICT FAIR. Second Day. The exhibition at the Fair Grounds open ed yesterday in good earnest. The entries continued to come in up to the time the book3 were closed, and the forenoon was occupied with arranging the articles entered, labeling them with their proper classes, &c. The trotting match for the Citizens' purse took place in the afternoon. There were seven horses entered for the prize, but one of these was afterwards withdrawn, leaving six competitors in the field. These were, Russel Bement's grey mare, Fanny Kellogg, Homer Alexander's black horse, Warrick CViizf, J. H. Morgan's Morgan mare, Ellen Douglas, Wm. Quinn's sorrel mare, Sallie St. Clair, John Browning's (Indianapolis) bay horse, Emerald, and J. H. Morgan's bay horse, llootxer Boy. Fanny Kellogg led off in good style, making the mile in three minutes and eight seconds. She was followed by Warrick Chief, who did some very good trotting, but broke badly once or twice, thereby losing some time in the race. He also came out in three minutes and eight seconds. He used his limbs very freely, stepping almost too far, but had he been thoroughly trained, and then held down squarely upon tha track, he would certainly have made very good time. Ellen Douglas, a very fine Morgan mare, wa3 next brought into the ring.and exhibited very fair trotting abilities, but evidently lacked train ing. She broke very badly in the second quarter and come near stopping, but recov- j ered herself and during the last half-mile acquitted herself very creditably, coming out in exactly the same time with her pre decessors 3.08. Sallie St. Clair was the next competitor. She started well, but was evidently a stranger to the turf, being al most a mere filly without training, and her driver found it impossible to hold her to her gait. She used her limbs well, reaching out beautifully before, and gave promise of much ability as a trotter, but did not seem to understand what was required of her, and broke frequently. Her time wa3 three minutes and twenty-two seconds, a failure as regards execution, but with careful and thorough training she is destined to prove very fast. Kmerald, of Indianapolis, was next placed upon the track, and now came the first exhibition of really good trotting. He appeared perfectly at home in the ring, and the manner iu which he went through the course was evidence of the excellent training he had1 received. He trotted his mile in excellent sty le,not once raising or showing any disposition to break his gait, and reach ed the goal amidst the cheers of the spectators in two minutes and thirty-seven seconds. Hoosier Boy came iu to close the match, and exhibited beautiful trotting capabilities, but appeared flurried and ambitious of do ing too much; consequently he raised from his gait once or twice, thereby losing time. He came out iu three minutes and three sec onds, thus ranking second, Emerald being first in the result. Aftor the trotting match was over, the ring was opened for the exhibition of trotting and pacing horses under the saddle. Two pacing horses were exhibited, and performed very succcsfully, but as the judges looked more to style than other wise, no attempt was made to put them to their speed. This exhibition closed the day's programme. To-day'a exercices will open with the exhi bition of Horses of all grades, and the Citi zen's Premiums for the best buggy horse, mare or gelding, and the best pair of draught horses, will be awarded. In the afternoon the Grand Tournament comes olf, with the exercises in fast riding and fantastic display. This will be one of the great attractions of the Fair, and the crowd to see it will proba bly be very large. The Methodist Conference. In this issue we commence the publiea tion of the proceedings of the Indiana Con- ference. This body represents the South western part of the State. The membership of the Methodist Church within its bounds is near thirty thousand. The numbers at tendant in their churches of course is much greater. The proceedings of a body representing so large and respectable a por tion of the community can but be looked to with interest. Monday and Tuesday of the present week were spent chiefly in assigning the delegates their temporary homes, mutual congratula tions, and examinations of the younger min isters in their prescribed studies. On Mon day evening an able sermon was preached by Rev. William S. Carter of Pulnamville. The opening sermon which was one of great power and eloquence was preached by Rev. Wm. C. Smith of Indianapolis, on Tuesday evening. His discourse was ad dressed to ministers, and was founded on Ps. cxivi, 6th v.: " He that goeth forth aud weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubt less come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." The Methodist Church at Sullivan, in which the Conference holds its session, is large and highly creditable to the taste and liberality of the citizens of that prosperous town. The people seem to feel much inter est in the proceedings. We Lope th? session may be a pleasant one, fraught with good to all attendant on this ecclesiastical convoca tion.

The natives lay down on the ground until the men were close upon them, when they sprung up, fired their double-barreled guns, and met the bayonet charge of their adver saries with tomahawk, keeping up a band to hand fight. The retreat of the Enelish was so urgent that their dead aud a few of their wounded were left on the battle field. It is also reported that the natives took one gun. Great complaints are made against Col. Gould, commander of the attacking party, for not calling to his aid an addition al force which was said to be within his reach.

The Weekly Enquirer stated 3-esterday morning that there would be 1,000 out. We give the result of three actual counts : One, by a Douglas man, made it 243 ; an other, by a Wide Awake, 242 ; another, 232 without officers. These counts embrac ed musicians and all.
