No. 1 "Dat's so, Jim; but if she says anything she gets licked, dat's all." How could darky No. 1, call his wife a whole-souled woman when her shoes were worn out ? On Third street, near the Louisville rail road crossing, on Sunday evening, a negro man amused himself for several minutes by and then with an ax, cutting her head in a j severe manner, no arrest was made, the woman no doubt fearing to appear and pros ecute. Tbe row created quite a sensation , in the neighborhood among the colored popula tion. When the neighbors got the woman away from the infuriated savage, he seized thb &jf again and chased a dog which had in terfered in the fight by barking at his heels while he was beating his wife.

He states that the Green ville and Columbus narrow-gauge railroad is now in running order, and trains run regu larly from Greenville to Stenville, on Deer creek, a distance of ten miles.

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. u AibMemeiits.n Editors AppEAii Under the above head I see advertised in your Sunday' issue a "grand ball, for the benefit., of St. Lazarus and Grace church, at the feahody hotel, Thursday. April 28, 1878. Tickets, one dol lar." The obiect being, as I am informed. to pay to the bishop tbe amount due him on his salary. Is this religion ? Is the bishop a servant of our Lord Jesus Glmst? If so, how is he so different from the apostles, to whom our blessed Savior, when he sent them forth to preach, said: "Take neither purse nor script tor your journey, plainly imply ing my work will support itseit, or, in other words, "mi children will bear you on ward in your holy work." These the follow ers ot Jesus did contribute as he intimated; this they did for the lore they bore him Is religion different to-day? Does it need stimulants to call for the support from its followers other than original love? Does the religion of to-day lack that devotion that called from the widow her mite, and induced the pure Mary to anoint the feet of Jesus with costly oint ment, and wipe them with her hair? Is this great principle to be laid aside by the church? If so. and we go to the world, and its inducements, and give a ball to raise money, why not have it in the church, the house of God why go to a hotel ? If it is God's work, it is fitter that it should be done there, in tlis holy temple, than elsewhere. If it is not His work, why stop at a ball; why not set up a faro table, or any other gambling device or means to make more money than is expended ? When we let go the principle we let go all, and it is useless to confine our selves to any one departure. If we depart at all, why not open all the avenues known to the world and to sin. to make money for the good of the church f Money-changers are those who make gain by the use of money, and these are the people that Jesus Christ cast out of the temple at Jerusalem. Is it likelv that He would recognize money gained by a ball in any other light? Suppose, if you please, that our blessed bavior on the resurrection morn had found at the entrance of the sepulcher, instead of the weeping, watching Mary, a grand ball in progress to raise money to defray the expenses of the Apostle Faul, would not the very earth have trembled to its center? Would not Jesus have bowed His head in tears, and have re called His words upon the cross, and have said, It ts not fimshedl is the principle any less a principle now than then ? To dance and einoy ourselves is not in the abstract a sin; but to use enjoyments to bring service to God, which our love for Him denies, is a libel upon our devotion to His work and our love for Him as God or it dissolves the whole as a mvth. But. I ask. what shall be said of a pastor of a church who openly and avowedly, or even tacitly, gives his consent thereto? As an humble follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, and one who reverences His sanctuary, I must utter my disapprobation of this movement. As soon would I dance upon the stones of His sepulcher; as soon take money for the raiment which He there left, when He arose superior to death and com pleted the great mission, that makes us christians or shuts us out from eternal rest.

TJhe Hecular Monthly meeting Held Iast Nlctat Reports or tbe Super intendent and Finance Commit teeOther Business Kte. At the usual hour last evening, the school board met at the Odd-Fellows building for the transaction of regular business. The fol lowing is the report of the superintendent: Office Board of Edtjcattok, 1 Memphis, April 8, 1878. ( To the Honorable Board of Education: Gentlemen For the month of March the high school enrolled 113 pupils, 4 less than in February; the Market street schools 410, 6 less than in February; the Chelsea schools 220; the Alabama street schools 399, 14 less than in February: the Court street schools 321, a gain of 2 over February; the Linden street schools 457, a gam of 2 over Ifebruary; the Peabody schools 392, a gain of 4 over February: the Clav street schools 567. a loss of 35 since February; the Second street schools 249, a loss of one since February; and the Monroe street schools 66b pupils, or a gam of 28 over February. This exhibits for the schools a net loss of 24 pupils in March, viz: lb lor the white and s tor the colored schools. The per cent, of attendance in March was as follows: High school. 95 per cent.: Market schools, 91; Chelsea schools, 93; Alabama Bchools, 93; Court schools, 91 ; Linden schools, 92; Pea body schools. M6; Ulay schools, yi; becond street schools. 92, and Monroe street schools, 89 per cent. The low per cent- of attend ance for Monroe is mainly attributed to an unusual amount of sickness in the families of the pupils attending those schools. Miss Mary Hampton resigned her position as teacher in the Chelsea schools on the four teenth of March. This created a vacancy in the corps of teachers, which was filled by Miss Florence Haley, the senior substitute elect by the board. If deemed necessary, the board will now confirm Miss Haley as a permanent teacher and proceed to elect a substitute in her place. Miss Esther Morgan is now the senior end only substitute elect. The receipts for tuition in March were $113, which makes the tuition account amount to $664 up the first of April. Respectfully sub mitted, j. x.

The treasury department rendered a de cision regarding the Gettysburg claims, six teen in number, filed in the autumn of 1875, for fhe. use and rent of camping and parade grounds, and the btflldings used for hospitals, in the summer of I860, near the. field of the battle of Gettysburg. The decision of the assistant-secretary is "That the owners have no claim to compensation, and no compensa tion can be awarded them. Such losses are a part of the incidents and accidents of war, and the government is no more bound to re pair them than it is to indemnify citizens airainst destruction bv food.- or fire, or earth quakes. An owner has no more Claim for rent, under such circumstances, than he would have against the police of the town whom he bad invited to protect his house against the assaults ef burglars or a mob. The gov ernment. a3 a1 fisatter of grace, by act ot congress, gives indemnity fot srieh losses, but there is no existing statute authorizing tne oavment of such claims. There is no occa sion for a further investigation of these claims; they must be promptly rejected if presented anew to the accounting officers for indorsement. Approved. Tbkasurt DsPABTKttrr, April 5, 1878. It wonld be impossible for any government to make good such losses during war, and es pecially civil warj as fire here elaitrted. Cer tainly there is no authority of - law for the treasury department to pay such claims, and I would -not ask congress to authorize it, though entirely within the power of that body. JOHN SHEHMtAN, Secretary. A Card. To the Editor of the Post: Washington, April 5. In the New York Sun, of the first instant, there appeared an article headed " Fraudulent Postal Bids," the first two paragraphs of which were an at tack upon the character of Major John D. Adams, so wanton, ttnd altogether without foundation, that he could not allow it to pass without an endeavor to secure tne redress which, in his own as well as the opinion of his friends, he was entitled to. lie, there fore, addressed a note to Mr. A. M. Gibson, chief correspondent of the New York Sun, in this city, with a view to ascertain the name of the aiithor of the slanderons letter or dis patch, intent upon obtaining from him a re traction of his libel. This note, his first to Mr. Gibson, was handed by Major Adams to me for delivery about nine o'clock of the morn ing of Thursday, but was not delivered until some time in the afternoon or evening of that day. In the meantime, and before the de livery of his first note, he received from Mr. Gibson, through a friend the following note, volunteered upon the representation of a friend of his Mr. (jibsonj that great wrong had been done Major Adams in the article re ferred to: A. M. IBSON TO JOHN D. ADAMS. BrjUFAU OF THK SUIT. 1 Washington, D. C. ApiU 4, 1878. My Dear Sir I have just returned after an absence ot several days, and learn trom a friend that you complain ot an article in Monday '8 Sun as very unjust to you. It is a rule ot tne Pun t j correct any injustice mac may have been done, and I have no doubt it will be cheerfully done in this case. 1 under stand that you are to be before the postoffice committee to-day or to-morrow, and if you will take that occasion to tell your own story in your own way, I will transmit to the Sun so much of it as relates to the matter hereto fore printed, and have no doubt it will be published immediately and as conspicuously as the article of which you complain. 1 may add that I never saw the article referred to till I read it in the paper on the train to New York. Very truly. a. m. gibson. I write you this note because it is possible I may leave again to-morrow to be gone some time. JOHN D. ADAMS TO A. JI. GIBSON. The following is a copy of the first note from Major John D. Adams to A. M. Gibson, handed to me for delivery before the above note of Mr. Gibson was received: Washington, D. C, April 4, 1878. A. M. Gibson, s.i., Superintendent Washington Correspondence New York Sun: Sir I have anxiously awaited your return from New York to learn the name of the writer of the letter or dispatch in the Sun of the first instant, headed ' Fraudulent Postal Bids." Please furnish the name to my friend Colonel Boudinot, the bearer ot this. Your obedient servant, john d. adams. REPLY .OP A. M. GIB ON TO JOHN D. ADAMS BURKAU OF TBB SUN, Washington, d. c, April 4, 1878. 1 My Dear Sir Colonel Boudinot has de livered me your note. As I said to you in my note this morning, I did not see the article in question till 1 read it in the paper on my way to New York. I therefore can do noth ing save to repeat to you my proposition of this morning, and to assure you personally that I, so far as I am concerned, desire to see you have a fair show. Very truly, A. M. GIBSON. REPLY OK JOHN D. ADAMS TO A. M. GIBSON. Washington, D.C., April 4, 1878. A. M. Gibson, Esq. : I am in receipt of your note in answer to mine, written this morning and delivered to you by Colonel Boudinot. As you disclaim the authorship ot the article in the Sun, of which I complain, I respectfully ask if you will give me the name of the writer. You, being the superintendent of the correspond ence of tbe Sun "i this city, are the only one i to whom I can apply for this information, and t.ustyou will recognize my right to it. If it is not in your power to give me the name, will you tell me where and from whom I can obtain it? Respectfully, ANSWER OP A. M. GIBSON TO JNO. D. ADAMS. Bureau of the Scn, I Washington, D. C, April 4, 1878. f My Dear Sir In answer to your last note allow me to say that you surely misapprehend my position. I am not a superintendent of the correspondence ot the bun in the sense that I supervise everything that goes from Washington. All that 1 can do in matters ot this kind is to examine for myself statements of the kind of which you complain, when my attention is called to them by a friend. I can state to you that in this case I have done this and found that, first, that what purported to be a copy of a dispatch from you to Brady was not a true copy; and, second, that there was no ovidence taken by the committee to show that you had secured your contracts by improper influence, this 1 thought it was my duty to say in a dispatch to the Sun, and 1 presume it will be printed. V ery truly, a. m. gibson. a, m. gibson's dispatch to the sun. The following is the dispatch sent to the Sun by Mr. Gibson, as 6tated in the last sen tence of the above note from him: Washington, April 4. 2 The article from Washington in Monday's Sun giving a summary of the postoffice in vestigation as far as it has progressed does injustice to John D. Adams in at least one articular. What purports to be a copy of a ispatch from Adams to Second-Assistant Postmaster-General Brady is given. This copy is undoubtedly incorrect. Adams did send a dispatch to Brady, but he did not de mand the recall of Reeside, the special agent. He complained that Reeside was asking the sub-contractors to offer to carry the mails for less than the contract price, and alleged that it was an attempt to blackmail. This was doubtless unjust to Reeside, becaase it was his duty as special agent to attempt to ascer tain the best arrangement that could be made for the government. The true copy of the dispatch not having been given in the ar ticle printed in Monday's Sun, an inference prejudicial to Adams might be drawn. It is due to him to say that thus far there is no evidence to show that he used any improper influence to secure his contracts. The above is a statement of the facts and the copies of the notss which passed between Major John D. Adams and Mr. A. M. Gib son, Washington correspondent of the New York Sun. e. c. boudinot. 1 FineSiDglendDouble BUGGY HARNESS! Fine English &Shaf toe SADDLES! We have a large and as90i'td tw?fc of the above now on hand.
