"Mr. F. A. Keelan, who, up to a few

TUo Power of Practical Itolislon.
While tbe christian relicion wherever it
has been impl&uled has elevated the condi

securely nni propaqated morality, there arc
many wU, douJtin? its power as the best
mans or the promotion of social welfare,
r-aort to human in ititutions and benevo
lent organisations as agencies best suited
for the attainment of such ends, llfuvver
well it may be to ma ie use of conditional
orcanizations in the accomplishment
of "objects VAineficialio society, the properly

an earnest spirit of its members has far
more influence in developing the moral
character of man. Religion "ives more than
it requires assistance of human societies,
and ifplnrious results are not achieved, it is
more m the fault of tbe church organization
as resnects its practtcnl workmcs tban m tne
character of relicion iUelfas an institution
divine in its nature, and yetjferthat very
reason weil suited for human aiiairs. il
lustrative of this, we extract the following

"A certain town in Eastern Tennessee
boasted of baring four whisky stills. The

"Meeting with an active agent of the
American Sunday-School Union, he se

been closed. The owner, as he shut up tbe
last one for want of business said: "mat.
Sunday-School is too much for us.
Anything but thl3 singing tho Biblo
into folks. It is no use to flht tbar.."
Show maukii.d that leligion is practical
and can even encounter that which is in
jurious to its teachings, that it is not un
natural and lias no suauie ior muse ui ju

fested openly, earnestly, and hundreds now
engaged in vocations far worse than tho dis

the earth will join the song aud nature give
one universal anthem.

Hero is a very good anecdote, veminding
one somewhat of Mrs.Stowo's "Topsy:"
During the last year of tho war, a con
traband came into the Federal linos in
North Carolina, and was marched up to the
officer of the day to give an account of
himself, whereupon the following colloquy
"What is your name?"
"My name's Sam."
"Sam what? '
"!No,sab, not Sim Watt. I'sa jlst
"What's your other name?"
"I hasn't got no odername, sab. I'se
Sam dat's all."
"What's your master's name?"
"I'se got no master now; massa runned
away yah 1 yah! I'se free nigger now."
"Well, what's your father' and mother's
"I'se got none, sah neberhad none. I'se

"Haven't you got any brothers and sis

Throush the kindness of Mr. J3eph S.
Han-ell. chief clerk of our postotfice, we are
put in possession ot some very interesting
facts with regard to that important institu-
The office eives employment to thirteen
r-lerka and nine carriers, in addition to
which tau route agents rannincr on the dif
ferent railroads centering in Nashville are
The money order business shows a very
encourasing increase. By a lata arrange
ment effected by the government, we are
enabled to send money to Great Britain,
Germany and Switzerland, and as our city
coLUins many hundreds ot fore giors, who
regularly remit a portion of their earnings
to the old country, this arrangement pro
vides them with a much cheaper method of
transmission than any before existing.
Our people seem to have wrong ideas
with regard to depositing letters in tne
street boxes, evidently believing that they
are more certain of going out by the first
mail than if they are left at tho office; but
this is not tho case with letters mailed be
fore live o'clock m tho evening, for ail let
ters are carefully collected up to that
The pay of tho carriers is much less than
it should be, as all but two receive only $800
per annum the two exceptions receiving a
tbousand. An effort bas been made in tbis
city, as well as in mo3t of the
cities In tho Union, to have the
pay of carriers increased, but,
liUrt (rood manv other sensible move
ments, has been unsuccessful. The pay of
these men shouid be raised to at least a
hundred dollars per month. As a class,
they are men of intelligence, and as their
duties require their constant attendance
through all kiads of weather, they earn
more money tban they receive.
The business dona in our post ofHco
during the month of October, is as follows:
Mail letters delivered, 79,352; local let
ters delivered, 4,301; newspapers, etc., de
livered, 29,078; letters returned to the
office, 21; letters collected 31,059; news
papers, etc., collected, 1,789.
The letters nassinc through the office in
crease in numbers as the fall business of
onr merchants increases: thus we have
RR fifiS mail letters delivered in the month
of .Tnlv. 71.504 ilnrintr the month of Aug
ust, 75.03G during September and 79,352
for the month of October.
At ono time during the war sixty-seven
niorb were emr.lnved in the Nashville Post-
office, and were kept constantly busy, but
that was when our city contaiuuu a uuu
drod thousand inhabitants, besides being
the distributing point lor tne man maur
of a portion of the Federal army.
