Art Keceition.?The studio of Miss c
i. M. Doddridge, in the Franklin Insur*
nee building, was again crowded last
veiling by th? beauty and fashion of the q
ity, who assemble:^ together by invita- b
ton of Miss Doddridge to examine the S
iroductions of her pupils. The pictures 1
vere hung on tho walls of the studio, I
round which the crowd moved, admiring c
he many beauties displayed and comnenting
thereon quite frcclv.
There were many line pictures .among v
he number, but we will not under- t!
ake to speak of them in detail. The i
avorite artistes seemed to l?e Misses ti
iue E. Crumbacker, Allio Crawford, Mat- j,
ie D. Hubbard, 12. V. Wallaoo, Laura
ioggs, Ktnrna Anderson, Klla IMIeburn,
jibbie Heed and Mena S. Woods. Miss j,
Anderson's "On the Coast of England" j,
.ttractcd considerable attention, as also ]
lid a geranium, from nature, by Mis? ,,
'rawford. The latter young lady also
xhibited a very line representation of a
ollcction of grapes. Miss Crumbaeker's 1
pecialty seems to be in vegetable pieces, t
rhicli have much artistic merit. Miss
iubbard's " Dom Pedro" was very
ood, and was universally admired, n
liss Woods'"After the Storm"is in our p
pinion her best effort, and a very com- t
uendable one. "Morning in the Alps," S
iy Miss Annie I'ranum, had many ad- c
Hirers. Miss Libbie Heed's talent aj> eared
to the best advantage in herporrait
from her easel entitled "The Tain- a
iourineGirl." Miss Laura Baggs exhib- *
ted an excellent landscape, "Lake in the (
Vilderness." Altogether the collection (
ran very line, and retlectn much credit 1
ipon Miss Doddridge and her talented \
uplift. . ?

n progress in the city. Night after night, <
ince the opening meeting on Monday *
vening last, the lecture room ol the (fourth
Street M. K. Church has been
illed to overtlowing by our people. There
a no doubt but curiosity in a great mean- c
ire brings the larger portion of the conization
to the snored edifice, but still it
an be paid that it is in this clans that 1
nany of the converts are found. <
At the Fourth Street M. E. Church
ast evening remarks were made by John
Voods, Wm. Murphy, Benjamin Mclaughlin,
T. L. Noble, Dr. Reilev and a
Ir. Monroe. Of these Messrs. Woods,
ilurphy and McLaughlin are what is
ailed new converts, having signed the 5
iledge since Messrs. Dunbar and Stringer
ommenced their meetings here. During
he evening the usual number came for- d
yard and signed the pledge.
Another crowded meeting was held in C
he First Presbyterian Church, where a
arge number were induced to pledge I
hotnselves to abstain from alcoholic c
Irinks.
