Vigorous in its logic, beautiful iu its

The Magnetic Ri vivalist, the Rev. Sam
Jones, of Carter.-villt, Ga., at
Work Akhiu.
CorrespoadeccQ of the Appeal.
Icka, August 2G. Iuka has had,
during the past week, tho grandest
and most gracious revival that ever
was conducted iu hsr mibt. Old
men and old preachers whose heads
have grown white in the harness,
say they 6w sights hero this wee!;
that they never saw before. Tin
Rev. Sam Jones, of Cartarsville
Ga,, by appointment, commenced a
series of sermons here on (no night,
of thi'lSth instant at the.Slelhadist
ehurch in this place. After the
second sermon it was apparent that
the church, which wa.3 the largest
house in town, wao not near large
enough to acQmiaodte the peo
ple. Hence, by permission o.f Ulaj.
R. H. Alien, the kind ower of the
Spring lot, a stand was erected and
seats arranged in the beautiful
grove there and services were aflsr
that time hell there, The congre
gatica eontiuued to increase until
it was estimated by many Sunday lo
consist of 2000 persons. The Rev
Sam Jones continued to preach sev
en days, and as a fruit of his laoorc
there has been about 100 conver
sions. A great number have ex
pressed a desire to join the various
churches of town, and quite a num
ber will connect themselves to
churches in the cauutry. The
whole corurcunity and sair-omidinp
country is tul'y aroused on the great
subject of religion. Jones, is cer
tainly a remarkable quo, and is do
ing a wonderful atnouut of good.
He lsft Sunday night fou his home
in Carterville, and as the people of
Iuka bade him good bye their pray
ers wept up to God for his continu
ed usefulness and his safety and
welfare. The meeting is still going
on and promises Tnuch good yet,
Wefaavebad.no rain: now for
early four weeks. ' Everything is
dry and dusty. We have, however,
a very flattering prospect for good
crops throughout this section.

fid. Advertiser:
I daire to propound
a few questions to Argus:
1st. Was not one of jour editors,
to-wit, Mr. John Bright, present at
the discussion between Morgan &
Chalmers at Harmony?
2d. Did not you then hear Judge
Morgan explain that he, while
Chauisllor, raised the penalty of
tho bonds of all the Chaneery
Clerks in his distnat, and th.U ho
raised them alikk, both as to dam
oorats anil greenbackjrs, and that,
iu doing this he was staling out the
duties of his office in accordance
with his oath and in the intercut ot
the public; and did not Gen. Chal
mers say that he had no reason to
doubt Judge Morgan's werd?
3rd. 1'hon why did you pubLsb
in the next issue ef your paper
that Morgan raised the penalty of
tlia bond of Mr. Blann in order to
beat hna oiit of the office besause
he was a greenbackerr
4th. Do you mean by copying
from the "Blade" the charge against
Morgan, ot raising the boud ef
Blann, Chaneery Clerk ef Desoto
County, and which you heard Mor
gan deny uud Uen. Chalmers admit,
to circulate a falsehood because
you did at originate It?
5;.h. Having hsard ,it proven- U
be false, then why do you still give
circulation to it? .
Glh. Do you think that such a
course is the only means by which
Gen. Chalmers can be elected!
7th Do- you endorse all your
correspondent says el the breaking
8ih. If you are in favor-of pre
testing the "infant industries" tit
the worth why do you and Gen.
Chalmers so. bitterly oppose pro
lining infant industries in Missis
sippi? . , ...
8th. Doyoa know what the Brit
ish Land Co. is? "
Uh. Don't yon. know that there
is uo Buck company in existence.
and that wh.en it does organize, if it
ever does, uod own the swaiups in
the Yazoo I)lta that the act char
terms: if, requires it, 'te piy .taxes
on its laudi'lbu same as otiiur peo
!?? "''','.' . ' -
10th. Don't you know that Gen.
Cualni'.rd nU'vOd a miatake vvhju ho
said the act chartering lha British
Land Company donated the lands
to tho Company - and took it from
widows anil orphans?
11th. Do you call this one -of
"the burning truths uttered by the
b.old, fearless nd irrepressible
12th. Didn't Morgan make Chal
mers admit at Harmony that, he
was net posted as to the last acts of
the Mississippi Legislature?
13th. Wenld Chalmers have boen
a Republican now, if the Demo
crats had have kept him in. con
gress? 14th. Was not Chalmers a "bold
and irrepressible" Democrat until
ha was beaten for Congress by
Lyneh in the Shoe String District?
15th. Did Chalmers ever find out
how virtuous and honoit the re
publicans were till ho was employ
ed by them to split the Democratic
party in Mississippi?
ltjth. Do you believe tho whites
of Mississippi are dishonest, do you
believe they are fool!? Then it
they are neither dishonest or fools,
haw is it that you and Gen. Chal
mers have the impudence to ssk
every body to join you in your new
faagled idea of riding iu to office
and power through the credulity of
thg ignrant colored man?
17. Do you think it right to tax
tho peeple of the South te make the
rich richer at the North?
18th. Why don't the republicans
and Gen. Chalmers appoint compe
tent tseu and nven of worth and
merit to hold tho offices in the gift
of the appointing power?
13t,h. Why did Uaa. .Chalmers
appoint or have- appoint id an igno
rant colored lara &i pastma&ter at
Ne w Albany whea then wr num
ber of white men Uiere who are
hi-tiiBSt and capable? Was it done
for ths public good, or was it done
for political eileet?
20th. Da you think that -it is
right and in accordance wilh the
theory of :;r government to ap
point nv. 'i t- o.fice lor political ef
fect? 21st. Do you bohevo that you
and all others in Ripley ought to
have a voice in the appointrnont of
a postnuster here, or do you think
that Gun. Chalmers ought to do
that thing himself withftut eousult
ing the wishes ol the pt"p!e?
22d. Which do yon think ought
to con'.r.'I our sounlry, intelligence
aud integrity, or igi)araie aad
vies. "QUIZ."
Mr. li. F. Foud,
Ed. Advertiser:
There is a demo
cratic club bow organized in near
ly every voting precinct iu this
And as a means ef disseminating
information among our people in re
gard te the pr.-vrross ol tha canvasi
in all sections of the country, and
ef distributing nowspapers and oth
er documents among tha different
clubs, I would-icspecU'ully suggest
that tho various clubs appoint del
egates, at every regular meeting to
visit other clubs.
Tho reports of 'these delegates to
their own clubs after visiting others
would be both laterestinir and in-
And Mr. Fiditurl would modestly
suggest that jou keep a standing
announcement in. your paper of the
time and place of tho moating of
the several clubs for general con
venience. I tako it for granted
that every club will have reg lar
meetings at least every two, weeks.
I think each club should have an
executive committee ef intelligent
zealous men, to procure speakers
for every meeting, and to send ns an
advisery coimcil to the President.
In conclusion I wish t nay in be
half ofCentr-i! Democratic Club,
that other clubs are cordially invit

We will have gapd speakers at ev
