Bishop- Lyman with tmkColobxd Peo
The Bishop of this Diocese visited the
colored Protestant Episcopal church last
night and confirmed a class of twenty
persons. Mis text was rrom the fipistio
for the day : "Walk in the Spiritand ye
shall not fulfil the lusta of the flesh."
" The responses to the . Psalter, and the
.marked interest in the choral service.
show that if the church would take her
services to the colored people with a
plenty of symbolism and ritual, a great
deal more life would be enthused, and
very much more good accomplished.
The Kev. Massiah has taken upon him
self the responsibility of the repairs of
the church which has transformed the
old into new, and he will gladly receive
contribution from the friends and well
wishers of the church in Asheviiie, other
wise he must go East to raise funds. We
hope that Episcopalians and other
Christians will come to his aid.
We understand that the -Rev. Mr.
Berry the old pastor proposes to return
to New York. He will carry with him
the best wishes of many friends among
both the white and colored people.

Bishop Lyman assisted by the Rector
and by the Rev. Dr. Minhegerode of
Richmond, Va., the Rev. . Dr. Porter of
Charleston, S. C, and the -Rev. Mr.

was the annual visitation of the Bishop
to the parish. His sermon was from the
text I. John, Chap. 2, verse 16, 17. "For
all that is in the world, ' the? lust of the
flesh and the lust of the eyes, -and the
pride of life, is not of the Father, but is
of the world. And ' the world passeth
awav, and th lust thereof; but he that
doeth the will of God abideth for ever."

spiritual. A class of nine persons were
confirmed. Among the adults of the
class we noticed Hon.Theo. F. Davidson

Mrs. Mollie Wilson, an old lady'residing
some two miles from the city, had the mis
fortune this morning to fall downthe steps
and break her left arm just above her hand.
As she is some 77 years old, it is feared
she may not recover. Dr. Burroughs was
called in, and rendered every assistance.
The Shakespeare Water Cube
Afforded immense entertainment to
the large audience gathered at the Opera
Hall on ' Saturday evening,- coming for
amusement, tmjjn !J&yMawp$
what was before them. There was soon
unfolded a - serjes of characterizations
utterly at war with all preconceived ideas
of the heros and heroines of the immor
tal Shakespeare. . There was a rollicking
delight in stripping from them the robed
of tragedy or the illusions of sentiment
and bringing them down to the level of
every day life, with all the enjoyment of
fun or with all the life, spirit or temper
that belongs to the common herd, and
there was an amusing and novel bold
ness in bringingjall the characters which
live in the histrionic world, the repres
entations of different ages and people
upon a contemporaneous stage. Macbeth
and Lady Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet,
Hamlet and Ophelia, Shylock and or
tia, all shook hands on easy familiarity,
and entered with very human zest into
the pleasures 'of the Water Cure resort.
The young people bore their parts with
admirable conception- of the characters
they presented, with a ready apprehen
sion of the travesty they made of the
ideal. Lady Macbeth was magnificent
in person, in costume and in carriage,
but she was the domineering, perhaps
shrewish wife, rather than the fiercely
ambitious woman; and Macbeth was the
henpecked husband shivering in mor
tal terror at the voice of his better half
rather than he was to be driven by her
superior will to attain a kingdom through
blood and murder. Juliet was the very
deal th character in grace and
beautv. but she had come down from the
of love to. show herself the
gpoilt young wife Mrs. Kentague full
01 feminine vanities,, and with a very
perceptible share of feminine spite.
Romeo was no longer the devoted lover,
but the spoilt handsome young husband
very conscious of his good looks and bis
power to make very jealous the heart of
his Juliet. Ophelia was in character in
costume and in the presentation of the
love lorn maid, but with enough of hu-
I man temper and practical good sense
I flashing out from under her mental
I enstrangementto make her a lively corn-
panion piece lor her sister tragedy
queens. Hamlet bore himself in his
tragic humors with true conception with
the traits of Hamlet, but with ready
facility to drop instantly into the broad
est burlesque. Portia was quiet, reserv
ed, dizniiied, but with a woman's readi
ness to yield to gold and yields to the
blandishments 01 bnylock, wno was cer
tainly more amiable as the antiquated
lover with his cracked voice sjcreeching
out amorous dittieis than as aiiakespeare
presents him. Othello, with the liberty
allowed to his supposed African nativity
comes out as a full blooded Ethiopean,
with all the broadness of face appropri
ate to the darkev. Deodemona was con
veniently disposed of in the kitchen,
and did not appear. ' '
The whole was irresistibly comical,
and if all the audience did not perceive
the broadness of the travesty all entered
into the spirit of the fun. The perform-

urday while driving into the city, in his
buggy. Coming down the hill near Maj
McDowell's, nis buggy was accidently run
into by a wagon. - But" little damage was
done, as good luck would have it. The
tongue of the wagon was broken and the
holding-back facilities thereof were decid
edly demoralized, which caused the wagon
to run down beyond control, and nearly up
set if not scatters the "law and the gospel.'

Mr. Stead, editor of the Pall Hall Ga
zette, Mrs. Jarrett, Bramwell Booth, Mrs.
Coombe, Mr. Jacques and Mme. Maury,
defendants in Eliza Armstrong abduction
case, appeared at Bow street Police Court
to-day to answer to charges against them.
Mr. Stead conducted his own case, while
counsel represented others. Excitement
m'coirstroom'and.in the vicinity Has
Beldom, if ever, been equalled. Police
were powerless to control the mob which
had assembled to hear the proceedings.
Members of the Salvation Army were
arriving all morning in cabs, and were
hooted at and jostled by the crowd on
their way into the court room. In the
court room there was a compact masts ef
people, including a number of reporters,
many members of the Salvation Army
and qu:te a sprinkling of brothers and
housekeepers. Mrs. Jarratt sat in pris
oner's dock, while Mr. Stead and Dr. Am-
well Booth had Beats in frontpf dock. Po
land, ofTreasury, opened tne case lor the
Crown with a long speech in which he
gave a description of hdw the girl was ob
tained from her mother,, the outrages to
which she had been subjected after she
was installed in Madam Maury's estab
lishment, and the ill treatment she had
received from the time she left her mo
ther until she was recovered" and taken
home. Mrs. Jarrett, during Poland's
statement, sat with calm demeanor close
ly, resembling' Charles .Dickens' "Sally
Brass" infold Curiosity Shop. Mr. Stead
appeared unconcerned, smiling occasion
ally, and at all times denying Poland's
allegations. At the conclusion of his ad
dress to the Court Mr. Poland demanded
the commitment of all the defendants for
trial. The child Eliza Armstrong was
placed on the witness stand. Identified
Mrs. Jarrett as the woman wno bad . se
cured her from her mother on the plea
of needing her assistance in house work.
The girl then gave in detail all circum
stances connected with her abduction.
