The Junior Older of United American
Mechanics of this city, numbering some
sixty, attended West Presbyterian
ehurch in a body yeajerday morning.
Rev. Mr. Keigwin preached an appro
priate sermon, taking for hie text the
ebaraoter and life of Joseph.
The Reverend gentleman in apostro
phizing his subject alluded to the crow
ing disregard of tbe Sabbath and spoke
of the moral oowardioe that prevailed
among the politicise and law makers
of this country. This is to be feared if
we oared for tiie continued existence of
our nation, if it goes on uncheck
ed it will in the end assuredly weave
its way into our national super
structure and our national ex
istence will go down among the chaotic
remnants of oiher government, that
onoe lived as we live; secure iu their
fancied stability. Wrong will creep in
where right d'graraes, and the oul.v
remedy for this is a prompt application
of the principles ol Christianity. This
is the ebrietain's hope.
if high-handed wrong wins in the
contest, we will have to submit and
worship as did the Christians nl old,
among the caves and lonely spote of the
wilderness; or as did, the tried disciples
In l'agan Home, amid the Hepulunral

germs of a geuerrte taith, and secure

But t >-day the eeutiment of this coun

publicly acknowledged iu the general
observance of the day of thankegiving.

The speaker in following this line ol
thought explained the important part
which Christianity must take iu the

WblieHensid • Wouiun Taken
Last evening a little inoffensive cur
ly tail dog was sitting on the step of
Mr.Megary's residence on Heald street,
South Wilmington. The canine utter
ed something'which the colored men
objected to and they indiscreetly shied
h stick at him. The dog took the
defensive and began to execute a fan
tastic dance around the calves of those
colored men. Soon the dog was re
enforced by Mr. Magary and sou. The
colored men swooped down on father
and son and the very air became heavy
with hoarse cries,aud half stilled curses
while above the din the short jubilent
bark of the canine before mentioned,
which had carefully folded his little
curly tail under him and was eyeing
the contest from his former position with
a feeling of deep interest, raugout clear
After a little a lull took place iu
which the participants had an opportu
nity to hunt up the damage done. Mega
ryBeuior, had a most artistically orna
rnented optic while the ear of Megary
junior looked as though some one had
been dining on it for a week. Mr. M«
gary started for the police. In his ab
sence the colored men resumed the
fight with Megary, junior,who in order|
to .-ave himself inoontineutally lied for J
home. As he passed over the thresh
old a three conered brick went grace
fully whizzing in after him.
To thi j Mrs.
Megary objected and
picking up a gnu ran to the door and
pointing, as she thought, at the assail
ant tir*-d. The shot missed the guilty
one of course, but she brought d
inoffensive old colored woman around
the corner. From the amount of bird
shot that lodged iu the victim's jaw she
will be quarrying out lead for a week.
This shot had the effect of restoring
order and when the police arrived
everything was as serene as a morn
ing of May. No arrests were made.
Capt. N. R. Benson, who had an
operation of lithotomy performed upon
him rested eaaily last night, and hi*
condition is such as to give great en
couragement Pi his family and physi

neglected to mention the attendance of

Ex-policeman Payns testified to see

who were engaged in it. The Bqaira
dismissed the case.

A Ueautlfnl Work of Art.
We announced to our readers some
time ago, that Messrs. Ball & Anderson
had obtained the contract for decorating
the s ore of Mr. J. P. Doughten,the well
known dealer in gentlemen's furnish
ing goods, and on the occasion of our
last visit we only made a onrsory notice
of the work,as the process of the deoora
tion had only reached the crude out
lines of the design, which to the eye
ofa (connoisseur) gave promise ol great
merit. Now however ttiat the work is
completed the expectations of those
who followed the progress of the work
have been more than realized. We want
if possible to give some adequate idea
of tho magnificence of the design and
the splendid execution of tbe work,
which cause ns to wonder how such
artistic effeot could ever lie produced.
Tiie style of the work and the effect
intended to lie produced is that of an
tique Mosaic, combined with the Mar
esqtie, aud will so be readily recognized
by those familiar with ancient decora
tions. The sight that meets-the gaze
as one enters the store is one of gor
geous splendor. The beautiful combi
nation of colors, the richness yet pleas
ing effect of the mass of glittering gold,
the birds ol brilliant plumage and the
entire harmony of all the shades, to
gether with the graoefnl curves and
delicate lines cf the design, all lend to
make one wonder at the skill required
in its execution, and to pronounce this
a master piece of art.
To Messrs. Ball & Anderson is due
the credit of introducing into our city
these beautiful styles which are entire
ly their own,originating with their tal
ented designer, Mr. Henry Ouerin, who
has not only been employed in the
leading cities of this country, but also
Messrs. II. & A. are certainly fortu
nate in Laving such a skillful force of
artists as they now have in their em
ploy, and with their increased facilities
for placing their flue goods upon tbe mar
ket may safely challenge competition
either in the execution of their work or
in the quality of their beautiful goods.
Squire Cole dealt out a little Jaw to
three unlicensed peddlers this morning,
Louis Nutter, Samuel Auger aud Ben
jamin Rothchild, fining them each #10
and cost. The accused were all boys
and had been engaged in selling sta

tence very hard, aDd completely broke
down, the Hquire informed him that
the sum total in his case would be

toe the mark.
Millard Concert. —Ou Tuesday even

that were manifested in the first concert
will, by familiarity, be removed in this
second attempt. Reserved seats are
being taken rapidly and a crowded
house will be the resalt.
