lor the party, and although dancing was
not in the programme, they enjoyed them
selves finely until about 4 o'clock in the
morning, feeling loth even then to depart.
At 11 o'clock, an abundance of refresh
ments was handed around, after which the
party passed off the remainder of the
night in various games. Taking it alto
gether, it was a very pleasant occasion
one that will be long remembered by all

This church is a new organization" under
the pastoral care of Rev. J. R. Payne, City
Missionary, of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, South. - ;'
He entered upon his labors in November,
1872, and preached during the winter part
of the time at Temperance Hall, where 15
members were gathered Into the church.
The object being to organize and estab
lish a new pastoral charge, and the Hall
being used at times by other churches, and
by the Sons of Temperance, a more suita
ble location was sought for in East Knox
The Second Quarterly Conference of
Church Street Station and of the City
Mission resolved to secure a house on Ma-
bry street. A small house owned by J. W.
Morrow was proffered for the use of the
church and Sunday school until arrange
ments for building a suitable church house
could be made. In March last this house
was prepared and the Sunday school and
church organization moved from Temper
ance Hall March 23d, 1873.
This charge is associated the present year
witn Church Street Station in Quarterly
Conference,and has up to this time only two
official members among its laymen, Mr.
A. E. Householder Exhorter and Class
Leader, and Mr. Jonathan Mills. Steward.
The complete official board will be elected
at the Fourth Quarterly Conference of the
THE SUNDAY SCHOOL".
On the fourth Sabbath in March a Sun
day School was commenced in this church
of about "0 scholars. Tne increase nas been
quite rapid. It now numbers 103 scholars
and 8 officers and teachers. Mr. A. E.
Householder is the efficient Superintend-
ent. The school uses the uniform lessons
provided by the church.
On the return of the pastor from the Dis
trict Conference at Dandriuge, a protract
ed meeting was commenced and continued
three meeting, which resulted In eighteen
conversions and twenty added to the
church. The Society now numbers thirty-
two with ten or twelve applicants for mem
bership to be received at the next Sabbath
A NEW HOUSE OF WORSHIP TO BE BUILT.
The present chapel is capable of seating
only about 100 persons, but it Is the Inten
tion of the members to proceed at once in
securing a lot and erecting a comfortable
and commodious house of worship. Most
of the people in this part of the city are
prevented from attending religious services
in the city churches by reason of the dis
tance. Some of the members of this
church are workmen in the Railroad shops
and in other industries of the city and
have families that they desire to take with
them to the worship of God. To ao
this it is necessary that the place
of worship should be convenient. In view
of this necessity the ladies of the Mabry
street church have organized a sewing so
ciety to aid in raising the means for build-
i i r i .-.ia i
ing a cnapei. incy ao noi expect to uo
much but are determined to do what they
can with their own hands, hoping that the
Lord will raise up friends who are able
and willing to aid them in this good work.

A Jubilee During the Fair.
Timely notice is intended to be given to
Sabbath schools, that a grand jubilee of
Sunday school scholars is to bo held one
day during the fair next October.
Ave understand a premium of a fine
cabinet organ or a choice library of books
will be offered for the best drilled Sunday
school singers. . The matter has not yet
assumed a definite shape, and we are not
athorized to say in what form the premium
will be offered, but it will probably be
open to all Sabbath schools in East Ten
nessee outside or the city or Knoxville.
If any premium ..is offered for the
city schools it will be a separate
one. The object is to have
grand jubilee of the Sunday schools of
East Tennessee. We hope they will take
notice in time and prepare for the occasion.
It seems to us it would be a new leature to
our fair and one that wonld be highly ap
predated, by all classes. Let the musical
talent of Last Ten nessee be encouraged, es
peciaiiy tmnaay ecnooi singing, we
make the suggestion to the officers of the
fair and hope they will make arrange
ments to give one day ot the lair lor a
grand musical festival.
