THE ORPHANS I
A UMral Donation-
Appeal for Charity.
Mr. C. W. Valentine was kind enough
to present the Leath Orphans' Heme
with a fine, new Grover 4 Baker
sewing machine, for which may
God's blessing ever be with him.
But than we have no opportunity
to try It for want of material. Bu: I
know from the past that many of he
merchants, if aware of the -fact, would
not only think it a duty but a pleasure to
set this machine agoing, by giving a place
of domestic, Unsey, flannel, calico, or
something, Just to start it. For what use
is this gift unless put in motion? It must
be set agoing. And now the mornitiga
make the little onea gather around the
kitchen fire, reminding us ot the kind¬
ness of the caal merchanta in days gone
by. Gentlemen, you may soon look oat
for Mrs. DtryTe's kind face. If you do cot
hurry up with a load of coal before ahe
gets home. The ladies are talking of
having a donation. Now, we want to see
all our old friends, and make many new
ones. Come, It will do you good, if it is
bat to see the leaves as they silently full
from their mother stem, Ah, yea; we
should be doing good while we nave an
opportunity; lor, like them, we are silent¬
ly dropping from the stage of action and
will soon be blended with our mother
earth. Mind, sickness will come; and
mind, the kind hand that will make your
bed If you have remembered the poor.
O, how many, V6ry many, are gone since
the leaves came out; how many more will
be gone before them. They will have
filled their mission. Can we all look
Jesus in the face and say we have filled
oursT if so, we will hear that welcome
"Enter ye into the joy of the Lord, for, in¬

these little ones, you have done it unto
your Friend and Judge." Your we.l-
wisher. God help you all to do good while
you may. The Orphans' Friend.
A CHANCE FOR INVESTMENT.
The very valuable property for building
purposes, at the corner of Madison and
Second streets, is to be sold to-morrow,
under advice from J. G. Lonsdale. This
is a very valuable site, more particularly
so in view of the fact that the magnificent
Masonic Temple, which is to be an honor
to the city, is to be erected on the oppo¬
site corner at no distant day. At present
the property is encumbered by a series of
shanties which were erected during the
war, and have been an eye-eore there ever
since. There is no spot in the city bo
eligibly situated for splendid stores. It
has the triple advantage of the Square,
the prospective Masonic Temple, and tbe
increasing importance cf Madison street,
to render it almost invaluable as a busi¬
ness location. There could not, perhaps,
be a better investment made in real e-
tate than this. The sale will take place
to-morrow. It is worthy of the serious
attention of persons proposing tc in ves;.

The Nashville Union and American of
Saturday says the report oi the railroad
commissioners, which we publish else¬
where, was presented in the Chancery
Court by Messrs. Cooper and Ewing, coun¬
sel for the commissioners, yesterday
The court inquired If any parties de¬
sired to except to the report.
Colonel Spurlook announced that he
wished to file some exceptions on the part
of certain parties connected with the Win¬
chester and Alabama railroad.
Judge John A. Campbell, on the part of
some persons Interested in the Edgefield
and Kentucky railroad, also presented
Mr. Ed. Baxter, as counsel for W. B.
Johnston A Co. and others, the purchas¬
ers of the Knoxville and Kentucky road,
and also aa counsel for the Blue ridge rail¬
road company, who were the purchase re
of the Knoxville and Charleston road,
wished to make exceptions.
The court adjourned till threa o'clock In
the afternoon, and, on re-assembling, it
was agreed by counsel that the causes
should be taken op at ten o'clock this
morning, Colonel Spurlook having with¬
drawn any exceptions with regard to the

for the Knoxville and Kentucky road,
and bond for the farther payments,
which the Governor and Commissioners
Tne Commission then adjourned.
THE FESTIVAL OF ATONEMENT.
Yesterday at 6 o'clock the Festival of
Atonement commenced The Jewish day
always commences at 6 o'clock in the
evening, and ends at the same hoar tbe
next evening, this, then, is the lwth da
risen, celebrated by the Israelites a
over the globe. This sacred and solemn
day commences on Sunday evening at 6
o'clock, ana terminates on Monday even
ing at 6 o'clock. See Leviticus, chap. 23
v. 26-32: "And the Lord spake unto
Moses, saying : Verily, on the tenth day
of this month there shall be a day of
atonement; it shall he an holy convoca¬
tion unto yon. And ye shall afflict your
souls, and offer an offering made by fire
unto tho Lord. And ye shall do no work
In that same day; for it is a day of atone¬
ment for you before the Lord, your God."
This day is observed in all synagogues
ana temples by tasting, penitence ana
prayer. Man should make atonement to
his fellow-man for all transgressions and
unkindness -. he should conciliate those he
has offended, and endeavor to reconcile
them before that day ; for on that day he
should make an atonement to Ood alone,
for bis many acts of wickedness and sin.
For where, oh where, is t he perfeot man ?
Who is there can say he is free from sinT
or on that day shall be made an
atonement for you, to cleanse you, that
ye may be clear from all your sins before
the Lord." (Lev., c. 16, v. 30).
The omnipotent God who created time
cannot be in want of time, and therefore
the appointing of days for judgment and
thanksgiving ia inconsistent with His di¬
vine nature; bat all this was a kindness
and a favor of our merciful God, con
ferred on man to appoint him a time to
examine his conduct of tbe whole year, to
repent of his errors and to become Mora
ciied to his God; "for I delight not In tbe
death ot the wicked, nut that he return

LAYING THE FOUNDATION-STONE.
The Fonndation of the German Luther¬
an Church Laid Ceremonies on
Third Street, Yesterday.
The German Lutherans have been sadly
in need of a church in this city for a long
time. The inconvenience will not last
long. An association of gentlemen was
formed some time ago, for the purpose ot
raising money to erect a church for the
German Lutherans of the city. They
have succeeded; leased a lot on Third
street, near the corner of Jeffer¬
son, and have already made prepara¬
tions for its erection. Tne foundation
atone was laid last evening with great
pomp and solemn religious observances,
by the pastor, L. Tri si. The architect of
the proposed new buildinir is James B.
Cook, who has finished a very neat design
of a framed Gothic church, which is to be
fifty by thirty-five feet.built of wood, with
open-timber rcor, in tne true meaiaavai
style. It will cost $5000. To the rear cf
the church there is to be a school-house
for the children of tbe congregation. It
is to be finished by the first Sunday in
December, so that there will be services
held In it on t;hristmas-aay,making prop
er allowances for anticipated delays.
Quite a number of people gathered
round the place where the ceremony
of laying the foundation-stone was geing
on, kuaui O'cioca yesieraay aiternoun
A choir, composed o: little girls, sang Bev
eral hymns and Arnold's band furnished
appropriate music. The pastor preached
'be sermon in uernian.

The barometer has fallen slightly since
Saturday afternoon on tbe California
coast. No reports have been received
from Lake Michigan and Minnesota, but it
ia probable tbe barometer has risen in that
region, ana tne area oi lowest pressure,
which has remalred north of the lakes,
has moved northeast. The barometer has
fallen very generally In the Southern and
Gulf States. Haxy and smoky weather
haa continued from Virginia to Missouri
and northward. Clear weather has pre¬
vailed in the Interior, in Southern Indi¬
ana and tbe Gulf States, with threatening
weather ana iignt rain tnis alter neon on
the immediate South Atlantic and Florida
coasts, and a decided fall in the tempera¬
ture. The temperature has risen in tbe
Middle and Bastern States. Brisk windo
from tbe northwest have probably passed
over Lake Huron to western Hew York.
Elaewhere.ligbt winds prevail. Continued
haxy and clear we-atner is proosDle from
the Middle ana eastern states to iex-8,
and also westward to the Mississippi val¬
ley. Cloudiness, with light rain, will
probably continue from Florida to Vir¬
