Tbe anniversary exercises of the MaphJ and Bhelby county bible ec- clety will be held at the Court-street rimLnrland Presbvterian church this evening, at half-past seven o'clock, to which the public are Invited. More man thirty yeare have elapsed since toe or gauizatlou of thiB society, and, though its operations have been conducted in quiet way, it has been the Instrumental Ity cf placing the Word of God into the Lauds of tens of thousands of people, wht were found absolutely destitute of the holy scriptures. No clerical com nutation can reach the value of the labors of this society, nor can an ordinary pen estimate the Messing shed upon the whole community by its faithful workinge. Viewed even from no li'gher standpoint than that of a moral conservator, and, by Jew and Gentile, the dissemination and propagation of the bible has accomplished benevolent and aEoient purposes But, when considered in a spiritual light, and as a means of converting and controlling the masses every well-informed man aud woman in Memphis can testify a? to thopowerof the work under the management of the c Ulcere and members of the bible society. The exercises this evening will be both entertaining and instructive. In add! tion to the secretary's annusl report, there will be addresses in reference to bible work and election of officers for the present year. We hope there will be larga attendance to-night will make one dollar and thirty-two cents cm be bought in tho market for one doilir and lets than thirty-one cents In greenbacks." The Philadelphia North American gives the following In f jrmation reepee'iog the f mailer colas: "The nickel one-cxt piece is no longei coined, and tli - 'r -":nt bronzj piece hlcb, by the u , w wa vay couveni cut, was altli u.d by the actof 1S73 Ths fact that large qu uitltlea of two cent b-0EZ are ia circulation mislead. ooaay bi-ines men. They may be sent vO the mint in tkia ci-y for redemption tnd when they are so sent they are seal to the melting pot. The bronze one-coat piece Is a'fco subject to redemption at the aoint, tut unless mutilated cr otherwise unfit for circulation it is cleansed and re-issued. The same is the case when nickel ccia of the denomination of three and five cents are forwarded for redemp tion. If in good condition, tbey are f'eiused, carefully overlooked, and re Itsued. Tbe nickel one-cent piece goes o the melting pot when sent for re lemption. It proved too clumsy." TELEGRAPHIC ITEMS. The time is evidently near when the poekets of the citizens will be again, more or lew, tenanted by actual money Instead of promises to pay money, and the musics! click of silver will be once more heard in tboland. A Washington correspondent states tbat a resolution from the appropriation committee will be offered in the heesa to the effect that In the opinion of tho house the time hss come when the secretary of the treasury shall commence to redeem the fractional currency with subsidiary coin. The seo retaiy haB already fu'.l power in the pre mises conferred by tiie first section of the resumption act, but he hesitates to folio w his instincts without sharing the responsibility. Tho majority of the congressional committee tbat have this subject in hand have shown themselves favorable to an eaily issuance of silver. The matter is necessarily pressed upon their attention by the want of an amount of three hundred thousand dollars to go on with printing new notes, if they, and not silver, are to remain in circulation. It costs nearly a million dollars a year to print, count and circulate tbe fractional currency. As the silver necessary for the isiue is in hind, and in process of coining, no additional cost would be incurred by putting it out. According to the reports there ia about fourteen millions of silver in the treasury. This, lying idle, at five per oeut." would pay seven hundred thousand a year, which is a good reason why we should circulate the silver we have, instead of appropriating .three hundred thousand dollars for mere note?. A dispatch to the Chicago Tribune states that "for several days the treasury has been, busy sending sliver coin to the different sections of the coun try to theeub-treasuries, po3iofilce3, etc.. ready for orders to pay out for fractional currency. Jven the order on the prop er officials has been prepared at tbe de partment, and nothing now remains bat for the secretary to affix his name, and fourteen millions of dollars in silver coin go jingling into the pockets of tjhe people. There is Jone thing that has taken place however, which is troubling somo minds on this subject. The value of silver has been declining for somo time, and when the coins are Issued they will be equal, dollar for dol lar, to gold. A few days ago the quota tions ehowed the gold value of a dollar of siivor ooin to be eighty-three and thrte-fourths cents. The greenback value of the same was ninety-five and a half cent?. It is well tlint tbe reader should bear in mind that the silver Is worth Its weight in the market, tbe greenback ia worth only the weight of the paptr. We are now speakiDg, not of tho circulating value, but of the actual value of the paper money.

The silver would flow not only into the sub-treas-uriee, but Into the bank vaults and mer chant's tills, Into the fruit-seller's leath ern pocket and the capitalist's bank bal ance, and a very few months would suf fice to insure the disappearance of every fractional currency note taken down to the most ragged and greasy dime; and It la probable that dollar greenbacks would bo obtainable only by paying a premium of one per cent, that being the difference In value between them and their discredited silver etandard This cireumsi&nce is so strange that It will be doubted by many and be under stood by few; but the fact, which cannot be questioned, is easily explained.

Dentu of the Schrrue In the House PncIUc Railroad CounuKtee nltti tbe Conulvnuceof Its Friend. Special Dispatch to the New York Times. Washington, March 1. The Texas Pacific subsidy bill is dead for this ses sion by the consent and action of iu friends Last night thera was a confer ence of the friends of the subsidy in the rooms or air. ijamar, and the prospects of securing action on the bill were dis cussed. It was agreed that the bill could not be carried through the house, if re ported from committee. It was the unan imous sentiment that ineffectual at tempts at action would only hurt the Democratic party. What should be done with the bill iu committee, was the next question. There was reason to fear that tne enemies of tbe bill might call it up in committee and force a vote. It WdS therefore agreed that a resolution should be oUered iu committee to lay this and similar bills on the tab'e, not to be taken up except by a vote of the majority of the committee. The resolution was accordingly offered to-day, and the committee adop'ed it wun oniy rour negative votes. These were Luttrell, Garfield, Kasson and uiair. iney desired uennue action on tbe bill, that it might be deafced, or that the friends of it migbt be forced to as sume the responsibility, There Is no purpose to take the bill up again this session, as the resolution was the ex pression of the friends of the subsidy. They claim that all who voted for it are friendly to tho suts dy. This is doubt less a mistake, for all the action of the committee has indicated that a favora ble report wculd not have mere than one majority. The intention now is to revive the scheme afcer the Presidential election, when it is supposed political influences, which are now powerful, will have temporarily abated. But the bill Is dead for this session, and that is some thing gained. REV. RICHARD S. STORKS. Hit Wlthdrnn-nl from Congregational Church Departments Confirmed. New York, March 4. Rev.

As to the interpretation put upon my action, making it appear mat l was leu to it by tbe action of the council, aud tbat I am in rebellion against the Congregational church, I will not now speak: but tbe resienations I have made.

There are many of our best men men ci me greatest power and lulluence in literature, sci ence, art, politics, aye, even in tbe church itself, who are no longer christians in the old set so of the word. Some iicaginathey have ceased to bs chris- tiaus altogether, because tbey feel that they cannot believe as much as othe s profess to believe. We ct-nnot all 'ord to less these men, nor shall wa lose them, if we learn to be satisfied with what sat isfied Christ and the apostles with what satisfies many a hard-working missionary. If Christianity is to retain its hold on Europe and America, if it is to conqusr in the holy war of the future, it must throw off its heavy armor, the helmet of brass and the coat of mail, and face the world, like David, with his staff, his stones, and his sling. We want less of creeds, but more of trust; les3 of ceremony, but more of work; less of solemnity, but more of genial hones ty; less of doctrine, but more of love.

The ways and means committee to day de cided to report favoiably the bill which was drawn up by tbe Brewer's assocla tion, restricting tbe commissioner of in ternal revenue in the collection of the tax on beer to tbe amount actually produced. The brew ers are obliged to report the amcunt of malt consumed, aud for every two and a-ha)f bushois they are charged with producing a barrel oi user: whereas thev are frequently required to usa nearly three bushels to obtain a gocd quality of beer. The committee recognized the Justice of their appeal, and hereafter the commissioner will be restricted to collee- muslari- ead, but that grain alone can move mountains, acd moro than that, it can move hearts.
