A napkin, soft, trlngy and white, ,

StddU and Saber; Bedford Forrest, tbe
urglariou8 habits.
In a circular issued by the officers of the
First Presbyterian church, of Nashville, they have
this to aay regarding Indulgence In worldly amusements-
" If our officers are well aware that there are
some of our members who are doing all they can,
and even more than their share, who eat their bread
oi carefulness, and even deny themselves or tne
comforts of life, that they may make their regular
weekly contributions to the Master's cause: and
some, who. In other days, were abundantly able to
devise liberal things for the Redeemer's kingdom,
are now. In the providence of God, reduced In their
circumstances so that they cannot contniHite as uiey
once did. And while we know that tbe net Income
of every one has been, by the stringency of the times,
reduced from ten to fifty per cent in the last few
years sun, alter making due allowance ior an tnese
thlnirs. we are forced to believe that there are among
members of our church and congregation many who
come very short or doing wnat tne Muster requires or
them whose contributions to the church, as com
pared with the amount expended for follies, luxu
ries, etc.. are only the merest trine. If the cigars
which are smoked, and the tobacco that Is chewed.
the candy and the toys that are consumed, In our
cnuren, could be condensed into casn, ana thrown
Into the contribution basket every Sabbath leaving
out of view the amounts squandered weekly for tho
more expensive luxuries, follies and vices our emp
ty treasury would be full to overflowing. I he trouble
Is our people do not cultivate habits of strict econ
omy. Thev do not oractlce that rltcld self-denial
which they should. They do not cherish that spirit
or liberality and generosity to the cnuren wmcn
should ever distinguish the servants of God. They
need to have new lessons taught them In regard to
these christian duties. If our church members are
allowed to frequent, unrestrained, theaters, public
hails, German dances, and other worldly and exuen
slve amusements, we may be sure that the contilbu-
aoDS to tne cause pi winst wui languisn."
Savs the Nashville Union and American,
ot the twenty-fifth: "One of the noted 'Moiett reg
isters,' by which It Is proposed to tax drinks In Ten
nessee, was on exhibition yesterday at the omce or
the eomntroller and secretary of state. In the cad-
tol. There are no doubts about it being a genuine
'Moffett' as u was brought here from over the Blue
Ridge by a gentleman yesterday. As this Instrument
would be a common article in Tennessee politics. If
tbe bill Is passed a tew words of description may
not be entirely out of place. The register Is encloseU
In an Iron box about ten inches in length by four In
depth and width, on the front is an elongated aiai.
upon which are marked faces, each of which Is
marked off Into numoered spaces from one to ten.
The first face has underneath It tbe word ten, the
next one hundred, the third one thousand, tbe fourth
ten thousand, the fifth one hundred thousand, and
the sixth one million. At the reverse of the register
Is a small crank, which is to be turned around every
time a drink Is taken. This causes the hand on tbe
first face to turn to the figure one, the second revolu
tion changes it to two. and so on until tbe eleventh
revolutl'Hi places the figure-hand back at cypher, and
tne ngure oi tne second - iace to one.
Each siieeeedfrig revolution ' revolves the
figure-hand of the first face, and the l ev
olutions of the second make oae revolution of
the third, and so on. tbe eleventh revolution of
each figure hand musing tbe figure hand on the pre
vious one to assume its oruinai revolution, the
register is thus capable of marking one million
drinks. Tbe inside arrangement sf the register Is
very simple, ana is easily , explained.
The crank communicates with a series
of six cogs, one In front of each
of the faces, and their action Is similar to the force
exerted In a turbine wator-wbeeL When the crank
Is turned around once, it can slip but one cog, and
must await another revolution to proceed. This is
done In order to prevent a continuous revolution
from going on. Every time tbe wheel turns a gong
sounds loud enough to be heard a coaslderable dis
tance yesterday, every one wno came in tne on ices at
the Capitol sounded the gong several times And late In
Uie afternoon the register showed that aix thousand
one hundred Umes had a drink been, or should have
been taken, bo far as can be learned from members
of the general assembly, there la no strong proba
bility of the registry bill being pasawcl-at least not
in its present snape."
agents here have generally, when coming to the
btate. gone by way oi inasnvuie, ana men nerore
they could reach this city have been persuaded to
look at other places, finally sttllng in some other
part of the State, and so West Tennessee lost her
Immigrants, and Memphis agents got discouraged.
Since I have been In Memphis I bave watched the
Immigration movement from an outsider's
stand-point, and I find that numbers
ot men come here from all parts, who, If properly
handled, and this advantages of theseetlon as to its
fertility of soil, road and water communications,
laid well before them; could be Induced to settle
without much difficulty. Tbe men I mean are men
of small means, who would rent or purchase small
farms or wild land, but who have not the means of
taking hold of large bodies. To settle such men as
those are beneficial, and for that purpose I would
suggest to tbe owners of large bodies of land that
they divide their land into small portions say Into
bodies of from forty acres upward as my experi
ence has shown me that where one Immigrant wants
a large tract of land, there are fifty requiring small
ones. The prices that can be obtained for the small
sections will ever and above pay for the dividing of
the land. I find one firm In this city rrho are doing
a great deal to bring Immigration to this part, and
who will eventually complete a good work. I refer
to the firm of Lonsdale A Co., of it West Court street;
but as that firm, by Itself, could not do so much as
If assisted by tbe land-owners. I would suggest to
the latter that they send to that firm a full and fair
description of what lands they have for rent or sale,
and the lowest price they will accept for the same.
This would enable that firm to place before the pub
lic a full and correct statement of tbe vacant lands
In this section. I do not single out this firm for the
purnose of advertising them, but because that Is the
only one I know, of acting In any extended
way In the - Immigration movement In this
city. As another means of carrying for
ward this movement, I would suggest that
some of your leading men form an association
for that purpose, and bring their Influence to bear
upon me various raiiroaas, steam Doats ana noceis
to obtain a reduction In tbe fares to those coming to
this section, either prospecting or Intending to settle,
obtain a description of what lands there are for
rent or sale, and spread that Information well In the
north and west and they will, In a short time, cause
the tide of Immigration to flow Into west Tennessee.
Such an association would not only prove of great
benefit to those in this section of the State, but to
the land-owners ot north Mississippi: so let them
join in the movement, if you like. Now is a good
time for you to get your lands colonized. Strike
whilst the Iron Is hot Northern and western men
are coming south In search of homes, and, by a
combined effort, these men can be secured for this
district Think of this, and act at once.
Anoloelzlne for so long a communication, but
trusting vou will Insert It as It may Drove of some
benefit to the landowners of this section, I am, re
spectfully yours, B. W. HICKLING.

Sehenck's Mandrake Pills
Will bo found to Dossess those Qualities nec
essary to the total eradication of all bilious
attacks, prompt to start the secretions of the
liver, and give a healthy tone to the entire
system. Indeed, it is no ordinary discovery
in medical science to have invented a remedy
for these stubborn complaints, which develop'
all the results produced by a heretofore free
use of calomel, a mineral justly dreaded by
mankind, and acknowledged to be destruc
tive in the extreme to the human system.
That the properties of certain vegetables
comprise all the virtues of calomel without
its injurious tendencies, is now an admitted
fact, rendered indisputable by scientific re
searches; and those who use the Mandrake
pills will be fully satisfied that the best med
icines are those provided by nature in the
common herbs and roots of the fields. These
Sills open thefbowels, and correct all bilious
erangements without salivation or any of J
the injurious ettects of calomel or other pois
ons. The secretion of bile is promoted by
these pills, as will be teen by the altered col
or of tbe stools, and disappearing of the sal
low complexion and cleansing ot the tongue.
Ample directions for use accompany each
box of pills. Prepared only by J. H. Schenck
a &on, at their principal omce, corner sixth
and Arch streets, Philadelphia, and for sale
by all druggists and dealers. Price twenty
five cents per box.

The chemistry of food is a subject that de
serves especial attention, as it has a more di
rect bearing on health than any other sci
ence. Liebicr's Liauid Extract of Beef and
Tonic Invigorator, Dr. T. Colden, proprietor,
is one of tne most useful and nourishing j
preparations in the world for invalids and
persons of weak constitutions. Nothing so
quickly and surely builds up and strengthens,
and while it is palatable and nutritious, it
has a health-producing effect on the liver and
the whole digestive system, w e recommend
it highly; and may add, it has the indorse
ment ot the most eminent physicians ana
chemists of the old and new world. W. N.

oysters warranted fresh and fat.

MENKEN BROTHERS,
Memphis, December 26, 1877.
Editors Appeal, In an article in yester
day's paper, signed "Vigilance," I find my
name mentioned as being present at a politi
cal meeting held on Madison street last Sun
day, in the interest of Mr. Flippin. I would
ask the privilege of saying, through your col
umns, that your correspondent must have
drawn largely on his imagination, as I was
not on Madison street last Sunday, neither
have I knowledge of any political meeting
being held on Sunday. I would also state
that I have not taken part in any political
meeting for several years. I expect, howev
er, to vote for Mr. Flippin and use hat lit
tle influence 1 may bave for his election.
Respectfully yours, N. D. Smith.
