On last Monday night a number of houses

For this robbery a day or two ago Dennis
Maguire and Dennis Matthews, two boys

THE PHOENIX BALL.
THEIR ANNUAL BALL LAST NIOHT—HOW
THEY TREAT A HERALD REPORTER.
The Phoenix Active Association, connect
ed with the Phoenix Fire Company, gave
their annual ball last night in tbe Dew lec
ture room In the Masonic Temple. Thirty
six couples participated in the grand march.
A Herald reporter called at the ball
room about 10,30 oclock, a young man invi
ted to come in. The door waa opened but
as the representative of the press was about
to enter, tbe youug man tamed aronnd
partly closed the door and at the same
time asked whether he was an Every
Evening reporter. On being told that he
was a Herald reporter, this young man
poked his head out, saying: ".Wait out there
until this set is finished, and a man will
come out and give you a report. Not being
use to such impolite treatment, the Her.
ald man left. This manner of treatln
members of tbe press should be stopped
they are nqt brutes.
TAKING A REST.
For some time prat, persons dropping in
to the office of United States Commissioner
Smith, have noticed the absence of tha^
pleasant and obliging gentleman,
absence Is caused by Ur. Smith accompani
ed by his lady, paying a two weeks vi«it to
Virginia. Mr. Smith's duties last summer
were very arduous and he was unable to
get away owing to the press of business.
He is now taking his vacation which he
very much needs snd which we hope he
will enjoy. From the fact that he took
with him his gun and dog, we infer that he
is having some sport among the woodcock
and partridges of "Dixie." He will return
In a day or two.

RECEIVING A PASTOR.
REV. A. N. KEIGWIN, WEST CHURCH'S NEW
PASTOlt. WELCOMED BT HIS CONGREGAs
TION LAST NIGHT — ADDRES-BS OF
HEARTY GOOD WILL—A GIFT AND ITS
The welcome given by the good people
of the WestPresbyierian Church last evens
to their new pastor, Rev. A. N. Keigwin,
was general, and hearty, and showed a
spirit of friendliness, that at once showed
the heartfelt pleasure, they took in so do
ing. The oeremonies were held in the
Sunday School room of the chnrch which
was pretty well crowded, principally
the member* of the church.
The exercises were opened with singing
by the choir, and prayer by the Rev,
Mr. Snyder, after which Charles Baird,
Esq., addressed the audience. He com
menced by saying that meetings of this
kind were not unsingnlar as u was for
the advancement of the good work of
the church. This time we have met to
welcome our new castor to our midst, or at
leant he who will be fully qualified our
pastor in a short time. It is our duty
to-night to show him that we are ready
to co-operate with him cheerfully and
willingly. On behalf of the whole con
gregaton, I extend to him our hearty
The choir then sang a selection, aft it
which Rev. Mr. Snyder was introduced.
He said that this occasion should be n.
joyous one to all, and it was a joyous
one to him. It was the third time, bo
said, that he had been permitted to be
present at tais church ou an occasion sim
ilar to the present one, and he considered
it'a great privilege to be here the third
time. He congratulated the congregation
on the hearing of their prayer by the Lord
for a shepherd to watch over the flock, and
also congratulated them upon the face
that they had secured so good looking a
man to act in that capacity. These good
looks however would not stay with him
long, were they to require too inmh of
him, and the speaker warned them
to endeavor' to make his pastora'e
as pleasant as possible. He believed that
feeling of fellowship shown the Dew pastor
on this occasion was not confined to those
present or to the church they principally
represented, but extended through all thu
churches of the city, of their own and
kindred denominations. Mr. Snyder thin
congratulated Mr. Keigwin upon beim;
called to a charge that was so pleasant and
desirable, and closed by expressing tb j
hope that the church would doubtless do
her duty toward the pastor, and the pastor
bis duty toward the church.
Mr. KeigwiD, at the conclusion of Mr,
Snyder's address, came forward and shoo!;
hands with him, and then facing tb<«
audience expressed great satisfaction at th.i
warm recptlon he had received at the hand i
of the people of the West Church. I fee ,
said, he, that there is something whole •
souled about the Wilmington, people and
that there is something of Sod's doing*
back of the course of events that has led
me to become your pastor. I realize t; -
night when I look upon so many getnere.l
berets meet and greet me that God bn a
bee* very kind to me, and Indeed kinder to
me on this o casion than eyer before. The
new pastor then went on to speak ol tb 3
homelike feeling that he experienced on ti 1
present occasion, and he said that .<* 1
coldness that might; come to people duiln ;
event* of a similar character was U.-a
farthest removed from his feelings. I'.a
went on to speak of the sphere of tbs
Protestant ministers, and said they bad »
vantage grouud in preaching their doctrin 1 ,
which, as he viewed it, was npt or v
universal, but universally applicable a' 1
universally true. In conclusion be sr l
that to succeed with the worK of- God, t
Tbs was only necessary to cooperate upon Qua
tbiDg.and that was to do what they thought
ought to be done, and not go to some 0 he
else and get it done for them. If we doth is
our efforts will be rewarded.
As Mr. Keigwin took his seat supper w is
announced, and those present were iuvil d
to adjourn to the next room Bnd pirtake if
the repast spread out for their benefit * y
the ladles, which Invitation was respond d
to with satisfaction.
We must not fail to mention one v y
pleasant llttls episode that occurred dur, g
the evening. Francis Vincent, Esq., r >ur
City Treasurer, with hie usual courtesy end
kindly spirit, had presented the new pa: >r
wltn a copy of his valuable work, " The
History of Delaw
upon being introduced to him. Just s 'ter
the lovitatlon bad been given for t bs.
auditn:e to partake of the supper as alre.cly
stated, Mr. Keigwin arose with the volt: me
In his hand and said :
"It sffords me great pleasure to say to
you that a gentlemen has kindly presei ted
me, to-night with a copy of tbe history of
Delaware and [ must say that it has klrdltd
a kindly feeling in my heart I my-el I au sn
old Delawarean by descent. Years apo
my mother came across the sea f rom
Switzerland— a land that was one of the
cradles of the teachings of John Cavm,
and here she landed at the wharf at Wil
mington, and I experience through ti e
receipt of this book a home like feeling. I
feel In coming here that I have com*
home; that I have come to the place where
my mother once was."
After the supper was over, and the aud
ience once more gathered in the Sunday
school room, an address was made by
R»y. Mr. Mallory, after which the assem
blage was dismissed, carrylog away with
them pleasant reflections and a very goo 1
opinion of t beir new pastor.
