Rev. J. 11. Ford, the verv efficient pastor
of the First Methodist Episcopal Church,
was mado the subject of a pleasant surprise
yesterday evening, by several members of
his church. After a pleasant social time,
Rev. Jno. Marshal, on behalf of the visit

token of their esteem, in the shape of a
nice sum in greenbacks, after which the
Dr. Josiah Curtis, who has Li-en absent
heveral months exploring the far West, re
turned to the city yesterday morning, antl
we are glad to note that lie is seemingly in
the enjoyment of the best of health. We

we may be able to do so.

On Wednesday afternoon last a distress'
ing accident occurred in the river opposite
the mouth of White's spring branch, re-
suiting in tne deatti ot a colored man
named Jack Branner. Ho had started
across the river in a boat accompanied bv
Henry Jones and a white Ioy named Wil
liam i-ayne, cacti carrying a guu ami ac
companied by several dogs. Brunner re
marked as they shoved oil' that the boat
was overloaded, and advised his com nan
ions to throw the dogs overboard. This
was not doue, however, und when nearly
in the centre of the stream his fears were
realized, and owing to the restlessness of
tne aogs tne boat sank, and the occu
pants found themselves in the water.
Jack could not swim and knowing this
uenry Jones told lnm and the boy to stav
by the boat and he would swim ashore for
assistance. Payne accordingly seized hold
of the upturned boat and Jones struck out
for the bank, in which he was foolishly
followed by Branner, who however, sank
nlmost instantly. Dock Hughes rescued
rayne irom ins uncomrortablo position
anil parties were engaged during Wednes
day afternoon and yesterday in dragging
the river for the body but up to the time of
tins writing it nad not been recovered.

Enterprise Triumphs Over Ever' Obstacle.
A bunt three years ago these two gentle
men came to this city nnd commenced the
manufacture of saddletrees. Having but
llttlo capital they were-foreed to operate on
a small scale at first, working 110 other
bands but themselves. Yet they were men
of enterprise, nnd boldly workeil their way
through, nnd soon they were enabled to
employ some help. Mow the Knoxville
Saddletree Factory employs t wenty-F.jVen
hands regularly, antl is 011 a firm footing,
receiving constant orders from all the
principal cities nf the South. Their work
is of the best quality; antl hence it is
eagerly taught after, b much w that ttiey
can not fill but half the orders they receive.
Their principal orders come from Mem
phis p.ud New Orleans, w lib occasional
ones from Galveston, Texas. The Mem
phis house has repeatedly written to them
to let them know whenever thty are pre
pared to furnish them more tret's, as they
r ?! nnxious to Increase their stand
ing orders. They now turn oi.t six dozeu
saddletrees per day. for w hich they lind a
ready market nt from t'-l to $24 per dozen,
making an average of about 622.50
for every doen they turn out. At
this rate they ship 'about 1,872 d;zVn
saddletrees a year which brings
them, at $22 50 per dozen, tho average
price, $42,120. Now this money is brought
from other cities here, and as Messrs.
Kemper Sc Kohlhaso livo in the city, as
well as all the hands they employ, ami as
all the material usetl is produced in this
country, every dollar is expended among
us. They expect In less time than a year
to enlarge their facilities to such an extent
as to enable them to turn out fully double
the present number, which would' put the
neat sum of $84,210 yearly in circulation
from that quarter alotie. They commenc
ed with but little encouragement from out
siders, and we doubt whether they could
have found any one willing to take stock
In the concern. But now they could easi
ly lind more than one willing to become a
partner. They have leased the Bosworth
mill, and put up some machinery in which
they prepare the wood and put the trees
together, .when they are taken to the old

Advertising Will Pay.
Frequently when approaching some
merchants on the question or advertising,
we are told that advertisements did no
good, in fact were not read nt all. That
this is a grand mistake has been repeated
ly demonstrated, and last Wednesday we
again noted the good clt'.'ct of advertising.
We lost our knife on Monday, ndvertised
it on Tuesday, and on Wednesday a gentle
man, who, we believe, is not even a resi
lient of this city, brought it to the of
fice. So if you have lost anything you
wish to find, advertise in the Chkonicj.i:;
or if you have anything you wish to sell,
the CiiKONifi.K is the best medium by
which to make it known to the public.
Try it nnd be convinced.

NO. I.-TI!K ROMAN CATHOLIC ( Ut lull.
About the year 1S55, asjncar as wc can
get it from the church records, Rev. Father
Brown, of Chattanooga, made some mis
sionary visits to this place. Tliero were
only from five to eight Catholic families
in this city at that time, yet being a man
of unu.-ual energy antl perseverance, he
conceived the idea of erecting a Catholic
church, nnd at once proceeded to make
cel'.cctioiis foi IhuL purpose. His under
taking met with success, and soon the
necessary funds were rnlsej, the lot pro
cured and the building commenced. For
much of the funds they nre indebted to
the liberality of the Railroad men in nnd
Refore the church was completed, how
ever, Rev. Father Beamans enme to this
city, and was appointed to take charge of
tho parish. He is remembered with much
love by his old parishioners, for his zeal
ousness in the cause aiuPhis faithfulness
In building up the church. During his
pastorship he made many successful mis
sionary trips throughout Fast Tennessee,
seeking the incmbera of that religion,
ministering to their spiritual wants, bap
tising their children, confirming their
youug folks, and building up the older
ones In their faith. His labors
met with graat success, and the
church was immensely built up
about fifty families being added, making a
membership of about 850 communicants.
He brought out the benevolence of the
church in a remarkable degree. It was
during his time that the original church
building was completed, and the parson
age, as well as one of the present school
rooms were erected. This was a consider
able undertaking at his time, yet his en
ergy was such as would not be overcome
by any obstacle. He left this city much
beloved by nil his parishioners, about the
24th of October, 1800.
Father Brown, of Chattanooga, again
made several missionary trips to this place
until the arrival of a new pastor, during
which time lie baptised many children,
antl received candidates to full member
ship. He is spoken of as a very zealous
man, visiting every place where memlwrs
of that faith were to be found without a
About the first of December, 1800, Rev.
Father I. A. liirgrath was appointed Pas
tor of this charge. He enteretl upon his
labors with much fervor, and under ids
ministry the church prospered, gaining
many members. About this time there
was a great deal of work on the railroads
to be bail, nnd consequently about twenty
five additional Catholic families came to
Knoxville. When he retired from the
pastorship of this church In April, 1805,
there were about seventy-five Catholic
families in the city, with au average of
auout seven communicants to each family,
making a church membership at that
time of about five hundred and twenty
live communicants. He also left here
honored aud loved by all his parishioners.
Again the church was without a spiritual
father for something over a mouth, but
Father Brown, of Chattanooga, true to the
missionary spirit thut controls him, again
visueu tne cuinonc people or Knoxville,
administering to their spiritual wants.
About the 0th of May. 1805. Rev. Father
Abraham J. Ryan was appointed pastor of
mis punsn. ine church continuetl to
grow during his ministry, and about
twenty-five more Catholic families took
up their residence in Knoxville. He.
finding the school room too small for the
convenience of tho continually increasing
numoer or children visiting that school,
had nn additional room erected. By the
time lie closed his connection with this
charge, In Jnly, 1SC7, the membership of
wie cnurcn, - being anout seven nundretl,)
had become so large ns to make it neces
sary to enlarge the church edifice In order
to accommodate its members with seats.
Almuth the 23d of October, as near as
we can make it from the records, Rev.
Father James S. Kcan was apointcd pas
tor of this parish, and remained such only
a short time. He gave up the charge
about April 25th, 1808. It was during his
pastorship that the brick addition to the
church was commenced, nnd afterwards
finished by his successor. He did not
remain long enough to accomplish mtx h
good among his parishioners.
In May, 1808, Rev. Father Michael J.
Finnegan was appointed pastor. He was
a very successful worker iu the cause and
his labors were crowned with extraordina
ry success. Ho brought out the liberality
of hia jeple in an unprecedented manner,
thousands being given for benevolent and
church purposes. He commenced by com
pleting the atldition to the church,
commenced by Father Kean, after which
the bell-tower was erected aud a bell pro
cured. He also purchased the ground aud
established the Catholic Cemetery east of
the city.. He was filled with the missiona
ry spirit and visited many places up and
down the Kail road. Greeneville was one
of his principal points, and he finally con
ceived the idea of building a church there,
which idea was carried Into execution
before he retired from this field of labor.
The church he built in Greeneville cost
over $3,000 of which only $500 were sub
scribed iu that plueo while the remainder,
$2,500, were subscribed by the Knoxville
congregation. The church was attended
with unusual prosperity during his minis
try, and at one time had the largest mem
bership she has ever Had, before or since,
namely: 175 families or about 1.225 com
municants. It was found then thut the
present church edifice was by far too small
to accommodate the membership, there
being not even standing room sufficient
when there was anything like a general
turn out of the congregation. Before he
telt, However, tu July, 1872, a goodly num
ber of these fumilita left thu city, yet tho
membership was something over a thou

ed by the present incumbent,
BEV. i'ATHEK P. MARROW,
w ho appointed pastor of the rarL-h in
July.. 1872, : Tho church baa prospered
under his leadership, and. Is growing in
numbers and strength. So far it has not
been In his power to do very much, being
limited somewhat la finances, owing to
the fact that the church still owed about
$l,000ontheGreenevillo church enterprise
This debt being now about liquidated it is
the purpose of Father Marron, and nt
believes he will receive ample financial
support, in the Spring to build n large
school house In the lot north of the parson
age. He snys that the present school
rooms nre too small by far tor the number
of children attending, nnd It is his inten
tion to have the school house erected the
first thlng'JIn the Spring, nftcr which,
it is bis intention to enlarge the present
church edifice. As before stated, it Is too
small by far for the present membership,
which is about 1,120 communicants. The
prevent pastor, Rev. Father Marron, is an
energetic and pir.ver!ns rs.-., ud iiis
ministry has opened out with a flattering
prospect for the growth of tho church, nr.tl
so far from tbe present, niemberr-.hip !ihu
decreased the prospects bid fair for a large
increase. He says he feels confident of
neing nine to obtain the means to carry out
all his plans for the coming year.

The Board of Trade at its recent meet
ing, in this city, acted upon and adopted
two important memorials presented by our
townsman, C. W. Charlton one on the
subject of popular education and the other
qi immigration. These memorials are to
be laid before our Legislature nnd will, uo
doubt, meet with that consideration which
their importance demands.
We most heartily commend our Board
of Trade for its timely action upon this
vital question. A more important Btep
could not have been taken bv that honora
ble body. The two issues of the day, are
Immigration and Popular Fdueation.
Take hold of these and press them for
ward, and there can be no equivocal
grounds occupied by Tennessee, nor can
she fail to realize compensatory results.
We must educate our people nnu open the
way for population, capital and labor. This
is the only way to advance to greatness
and to prosperity. We need to-day, a half
million or more of enterprising people.
Nor are we particular where they come
The Legislature, we hope, will meet the
just demands and expectations of the peo
ple on both of these questions. Give us a
good school law, and make a judicious ap
propriation to furnish facts with regard to
our advantages and resources, antl to sus
tain our commissioners of immigration.
