Preparing for Christmas. The but cliers are making extensive prepa rations to supply their patrons with the choicest of beef and mutton for Christmas, and some of the finest ever displayed in the market will be on exhibition in the morning. John A. Warner (stall is particularly jubilant over the display he win inn ice. J3. T. Cooper (stall OS) boasts that he will have the finest display of turkies and game 01 various kinds in the market. It is hard to gel ahead of him. Every indication points to the fact that the Market House will be unusually attrac tivc to-morrow morning. What the Farmers Say. A AVest Tennessee fannereclioes the sen. timent of Middle Tennessee, when, order ing a continuance ot the I si ox and Amkkicax to him, he says: "We faniicis cannot get along without it. It is as use- lul as our lannly physician and almost as indisihiiisable.'' The Farm and Household department of the Ixios and Ami:i:ic.vn. edited by Dr. D. Lee who writes exclusive ly for tins paper, wins golden opinions, not only in Tennessee, but wherever it is read. The fanners of the South obtain more use ful information in their practical affairs from the Union and Amekicax than from any ether paper of any name or class pub- lisiieu anywhere, its agricultural matter is practical and applies tolhe soils, climate and agricultural resources of the Southern States, ai'd we are glad to sav that it is ai- preciated, and that its circulation among farmers is far greater than that of any other paper published in the State. Dr. Young' at Elm Street Church. At the earnest request of the pastor. Dr. Young filled his former pulpit at the Elm Street Church, last Sunday evening, to the gratification of a large congregation. He siokc with an earnestness that brought the truth home to every one present. His text was full of weighty thought and suggested a careful study of "our walk and conversa tion."' It was the latter clause of the 5th chapter of Nehemiah, f!th verse: "Ought ye not to walk in the fair of our God, be cause of the reproach of the heathens, our enemies?' He spoke of the common mis take made in judging of a religion by its professors, and showed with great clearness that we should exactly reverse it and judge the professor bj his religion. In tins connection lie spoke of a r ranch man who had doubts as to the divinity of our religion and gave his attention to the subject by carefully watching its professors. He decided that it must be Divine or it never would have lived so many years with such faithless inconsistent professors. "Artcr the Rabbit." couple of chromos on exhibition in the show-window of Dornbusch's picture store on Union Street have attracted great itlention from passers-by for a week past. One represents a dog harnessed to a wagon, n full chase altera rabbit. A little bov has 1 linn hold upon the lines, to which he dings with desperation, while his vehicle is dashed about at a fearful rate by the un- eveness of the track. By his side is a little sister holding firmly to the scat, with streaming hair and eyes opened to their widest extent, while just behind the wag on the baby is seen flying through the air in an inverted position, having been thrown out by the rapid speed with which the dog dashed over all obstacles. The other picture represents the dog as having caught the rabbit, but the wagon is broken to pieces, the little girl has been spilled out in a very unceermonious man ner and the youtmul driver is drawn halt way across a log, but he still clings, to the lines with an exhibition ot pluck and per- sevcrence highly commendable. In looking at the picture lirst spoken 01, one cannot resist the conviction that the dog has made up his mind to catch the abbit if he kills the whole family and coh orts the wagon into kindling wood. Personals. Prof. Oscar Abraliamsohn, has returned lo the city from a somewhat protraeted visit to Germany, his arrival in Fatherland oc curring about the time of the little unpleas- intness between that power and trance.

The menibers of the Bar present .were, then 'called to Order, and, upon, iliolion', Chau- and J. ii.JShaiikland, Esq., was appointed bCcrctary. Upon taking the chair, Clian- cellor Cooper expressed his deep regard $nd veneration from earliest childhood for the deceased: that Mr Foster was probably the most venerable counselor at law in the Stale cf Tennessee, and that he was a con temporary of the Chancellor's father, now 1 . . 1 . eigniy-im-ee years 01 age. Gov. N". S. Brown, in a few remarks spoke of his sorrow on account of the mel ancholy tidings just received. He had known Mr. Foster all his life. Before he thought of practicing law he believed Mr Foster was already at the bar. His name is impressed prominently with high honor on many a page of the legislative and judicial annals of Tennessee for it long scries of years. Jteniembrance of the past now rises before us, quickening our reverence and regard. We arc loath to part with old. mends, upon concluding ins eloquent re marks Gov. Brown moved who desired to bepresentto do so. He moved that the meet ing be adjourned to Wednesday, Dec. 24, at o o clock, winch motion prevailed. The chair appointed the committee, composed of the lollowing: Francis B. iogg, Nathaniel Baxter, Sr., Neil S. Brown, Sr., Jackson B hue, and William Is. Keese. Adjourned to 2 o'clock Wednesday next Tribute of Respect.

Prof. Thos. L. Maddin, on the part of the Faculty, and Mr. M. J. M. Moore and Mr. J. G. Cove, of the class, were constituted a committee on resolutions; and reported as follows: We, the Faculty and students of the Med ical Department of the University of Nash ville, having assembled to pay respect to the memory of a worthy student and fel low associate, do therelorc llesolvc, that it is with sorrow and pro found emotion we learn of the death ot J. T. Poiner, a student of this institution. Besolved, that the deceased, for Ins uni form gentlemanly deportment, high sense of honor, zealous and studious ellorts to master his profession, has commanded the admiration and affection of his teachersand fellow students. Resolved, that while but a law days past the future presented to his ambition a life lull ol hope, ol promise and ol usefulness, yet, we bow with Christian resignation to the mysterious dispensation of an All-wise Providence. Ilesolved, that the Secretary be instructed to send a copy of these -proceedings to the bereaved family of the deceased, with as surances ol our sincere condolence in this, their heavy afllict'on: also, that a copy be furnished for publication to the two daily papers of Nashville.

Our readers are aware that officer Davis has been detailed to look up all cases of destitution reported to the Mayor, of which there arc doubts as to their genuineness. A reporter on this paper accompanied officer Davis in making a visit of this character yesterday. 1 he house is located on Church street, west of the depot. It is in a back yard, md isa mereshell, consisting of two rooms. Upon knocking at the door it was opened by a sallow looking woman, and Mr. Davis and the reporter were invited to enter. Tliev found that a bed, a table with a few dirty dishes on it and a stove comprised all the furniture the front room contained, there beingnothing buta few sticks of wood in the back room. " Avery light straw tick was on the bed, and on this a man was lv- ng with all his clothes on, hat included, and was covered with a verv dirty blanket. A dish containing some com dough was on the table, and the woman was trying to roast some collee on the stove, lliesetwo articles were all the room contained in the way of provisions. A white-headed boy iiuout six years old clung to hts mother s dress at first, but soon left her, and walking no to the bed, kissed the sick man andthcii stood caressing 111s hand. The woman said that her husband used to bo a railroad engineer, but had been so sick for the past three years that he was un able to work. They came here lrom Vir ginia about two montlis ago and were on their way to Missouri, but her husband had spasms alter reaching iNashvilic, and a doctor said he would die it they attempted to go on. The man is now entirely help less, and cannot raise up without assist ance. Sunday night he had two spasms, and his wife sat up all night with him, alone. She says that she has been assisted by Capt. Stockell, Col. Cole, Mr. Gleaves and Capt. Sheets, but yet they are in a very pitiable condition. They pay six dollars per month for tho hut they occupy, and four dollars additional for the use of the bed and stove- POLICE PICKINGS. There is something very tender and touching about the love and respect a duti ful d:ni"bter entertains for her mother the be'iim who watched over her in lufancv, ho nursed her through all the ills that in fant flesh is heir to, and who spanked her for crying when concealed puis lacerated her tender flesh. Who among us can do otherwise than commend Tina Claxton for resenting the unbecoming language Nancy Armstrong addressed towards the immedi ate maternal ancestor of the former? Echo answers, "Not one!" To be sure Tina is no spring chicken, and her nose is remark- iblc lor its rosy ulusii, anu wncn sue passes you you think that a fairy, fresh from some wine cellar or gin-mill, lias just llitted by, and to be sure it does seem tliat i ma was somewhat harsh in knocking Nancy into the fire, when a sufucient amount ot cbas tiscmcnt might liave been inflicted by chucking her under the table and throwing hot ashes upon her, but these are mere matters of taste. The fact that Tina stood up nobly in behalf of her mamma entitles that combattive female to the heartiest praise of our readers, all of whom will be pained to learn that she was fined S3 because of this display of filial tenderness. Armstrong donated the sum of one dollar and a half ($1.50) for the use and benefit of the city. When Catharine Nelson was asked what she had to say to the charge of having used vulgar language, she replied that she "hadn't used no sich word," and when the same pointed inquiry was addressed to Sue Allen, the latfer responded, "I don't say notliinV 1 lie sum ol ten dolfars was added to the already bursting coflers of the city treasury, inconsequence of the wicked language these women were proven to nave indulged m. Joe and John Kirk were before the court on a rather serious charge. I he testimony was to the effect that they met a colored man by the name of Richardson, on Fill more street, Sunday. Joe made an assault upon Richardson with a knife. His brother John joined in and the two got Richardson down and were beating and cutting him, when two while men ran up and urged them lo desist, whereupon the two Kirks left Ricliardson and made an attack upon the two white men. The latter ran into a house, one of them firing at Joe, as he ran. After they got into the house, the Kirks made an attack upon the building with stones. They were arrested byolIlcerDale, and were fined lo0 each, on three distinct charges. rn lift-1 ii :r Success. Dr. Young.

Executive ColiliriiUec bog leave to stlbiiiit the following report of its work for" the year; An organization ot the committee was perfected Jan. 8, 1S73, re-electing S. M. Scott. Esq., Chairman. 1'ursuant to instructions given oy tno Society atu 1I3, last ajinual ltiectlrig; yiiur committee at its first meeting appointed a sub-conimiltce to arrange for the celebra tion oftheSociety'ssemi-ccntennialanniver-sary, which celebration was ordered for the first Saturday in May. Before the pro gramme was completed it was discovered that the semi-centennial of the Society did not occur until the SOth of August, 187:1, instead of during the year 1872, whereupon the celebration was indefinitely postponed. The work of the committee tor tins year has been directed to the supply ot Putnam and Jackson counties, and to hnislun the supply of Davidson county. In the lat tor part of May, Messrs. E. F. Pritchett add A. S. Doak, the colporteurs engaged for Futnaln and Jackson counties, began their work, with the following results: In Jackson county 722. families were visited, 307 of which were found destitute bf aiiy portion of the Scriptures: ot this number ISO were" supplied. Tho number of Bibles sold was 214 and the number donated 324; value of those donated 112.70 In Putnam county the number of fam ilies visited was 607; found destitute, 271; supplied, 24G; Bibles and Testaments sold, 1U2; donated 20S, valued at lo0.4S. l our committee regret to report that an entire canvass of these two counties was not made, The colporteurs employed were thcologi cal students from Hampden Sidney Col lege, Va., and better material the commit tee could hardly have obtained, but the time they had to devote to this work was only three months-which would have been ample lor finishing the two counties had not other causes intervened to interrupt their labors, chief among these being their inability to obtain more books after ex hausting the supply on hand. The only transportation facilities of Putnam and Jackson counties are by private wagons, steamboat, and stage from Lebanon. Their supply ran out in the summer, when the river was too low for boating and at a time when cholera was raging in Lebanon and Nashville, causing all wagon travel to sus lend. A lot of books were sent to Lebanon by rail to be forwarded from thence by the stage-line which runs to Cookeville, but this was destined never to be done. The agents and drivers of that stage-line, with an obliging kindness astonishingly rich in promises, but distressingly barren 111 good results, delayed our colporteurs some time. Hoping that total depravity had not found its embodi ment in these individuals, and tliat their promises would be redeemed and the books surely come after awhile; but being disap pointed in tins, alter much trouble a vein cle was hired by them, and hitching their own riding stock to it, a journey was made to Lebanon, despite the prevalence ol chol era, and the books obtained. What has been accomplished is due much to the pluck and energy of these young men. The county tliey canvassed is very rough and mountainous, and the obstacles to be over come bv them were not few nor trivial. They report the ignorance of the people and their destitution of the Scriptures to be very great, especially in the county of Put nam. Their reports show the average des titution of the two counties to be over fortv per cent, or nearly every other family, The small portion ot Davidson county left unfurnished at last report hits been fin ished, the report of Mr. Rowe, the colpor teur, being as follows: Number of families visited, 159; found destitute, 50; supplied, 43; number of Bibles and Testaments do nated, 4o.

M. Scott, col. 45 00 It will be seen from the Treasurer's-.re port that the finances of the Society arc not m a prosperous condition. Hie collections this year are but little more than a third of what they were last year, our stock of books less, and indebtedness to the parent society greater. .Your committee had hopes of raising a larger sum this year than last by donations from private individuals, ;is the churches, with one or two notable ex ceptions, cannot be looked to for certain aid in this character of Chritsian work, and why we have not their co-operation your committee are at a loss to understand. But in these donations we have been disap pointed, in common with many other en terprises, which confident expectations the cholera and panic has caused to lall far short of realization. We close our report with the remark that the only solution of our diflicultics here, is a united and honest effort of the friends of the Bible cause, which we earnestly hope may be put forth during the ensuing year the solution itself being a palladium of the Society's usefulness and an ever present harbinger of success. S. M. Scott, Chm'n. Rout. L. Morris, Sec'y. After reading-the report a discussion was had as to why the Societv did not receive a more hearty co-operation of the churches of the city. iV mot on was passed instructing nev. Mr. Wiley, the Agent of the American Bible Societv. to cause a meeting of the ministers of the city and Edgefield to be had, and lay before them the importance and necessities of the Bible cause. The finishing of the canvass of Jackson and Putnam comities, and the canvass of Perry county, was determined upon. Owing to the small number present, no election of officers was made. Festival. A large crowd attended the festival at the Court House last night, given for the purpose of raising a fund to open a House of Industry. It will be repeated again this ing. and the colored people who evinced such an interest last evening will no doubt be out in force again. Wood. There was a great demand for wood at the city workhouse yesterday, and a con siderable quantity was given away. The Baptist Fair. Notwithstanding the inclemency of tLe weather last evening, there was a goodly at tendance at the fair, and a most enjoyable .'veiling it was, too, for those who ventured dut. Tile dales from the different tables Vl-ere largUj but this was necessary from tho f'adt tllt stJ ifiauy ilew contributions were received yesterday, the ladies had to make room for theiil in spilio tvaV or other The refrqshilfeii,t departtiiciit had aliost OT vjsitdrs during the' oeniHg; who did am ple justice to' the bountiful supply of good things spread before them. For the past two nights there have been several regular boarders, who declare it is tho best-place in the city to get a good supper, and fifty per cent cheaper than hotel prices. One gcntle inail remarked that he could afford to walk two miles to get such a cup of good coifee; as he hasn't had any of that sort since the advance. The Italian Band discoursed delightful music throughout, which was listened to with pleasure by all present. The Shooting Gallery is in full blast again, and the receipts at that "institution" arc large. Telegraphic messages and letters from the postollicc Were handed around muchly. This local as soon as entering the doer last night Was handed a telegraphic diapatch, wliich Upon opening he found to read as follows.' "A couple of young ladies have charge of llte.l'ostollice. ' W0 had made up our niiild to see if the important, information contained in that telegram was really so, when that "last fond loos" we were about to take, was dis turbed oy the enterprising little letter car rier, who placed in our possession an en velope, and in that envelope a sheet of note paper, gut-edge, and on that piece ol paper, the following' in manuscript: "We don't know whether you have re ceived a letter from us, hut rest assured wo are glad to liave you among us, and hope that your visit will bepleasantand interest ing. Posjimistuess." Being satisfied that no other person in that assemblage received such a cordial welcome, or a letter with similar contents, this heart overflowing with gratitude can say: "May the Postmistress live long and prosper." ihe tableaux last night, as on previous evenings, were a complete success, and each representation loudly encored. The first "Comin' thro' the Rye" was magnifi cent, and wasrendered doubly attractive by tne assistance ol Nasnvills song bird, Mrs Craig, who sang exquisitely as she always does, the well known Scotch ballad. Those who iiersonated the different characteis in the tableaux were Misses Reua Howell, Sallie Duncan, Mary Bell Jones, Lulie Mc- Crory, John Eastman, Russell Duncan, An drew r uller, and Oolluni Brown. une ot the features ol the evening was the Quaker Duett, by Erwiu Craighead and Miss Lulie McCrory, who were dressed in character ami made a most happy Int. The statuary was a master piece, and never surpassed at any former exhibition of the kind. Hiose who took part in this closing tableaux were Mrs. Elbridge East man, Misses Lucy Eastman, Mary Bell Jones, Emma Moulton, Mattje Schluter, Sallie Schluter, Maggie Hollins, Mary Jones, JA'na Locke and irank Duncan. In the absence ot Mrs. Goff, Jlrs. Frank Krieder managed and superintended tho tableaux, and proved to be a connoisseur in the business. Among the lucky ones last night was Win. Thomas who drew tliedashing widow md L. R. Eastman, who carried off the sofa pillow. CITY NOTICES. Marked reductions at Ricesy Unusual reductions at Rice's? Tremendous reductions atfRice's.
