Wheu a minister of the gospel leaves his desk and goes down into the political arena, it is well for the public to keej) their weather eye upon him, for ho is sure to conic to some bad end Hooucr or later. M'o make this reflection not that preachers should not have their political 6r parly prcdilictions, but t hat (hey should not engage active ly into political contests and make political speeches. This is proven by the manner in w hich the world (iieslioiiH their sincerity as faith ful and earnest teachers of the holy w ord of God, aud when they engage hi such they soon lose the respect mid confidence, not only of Christians, but ot the people gen erally. Then, again, it is no part of a minister's duty to go upon the hustings advocating his or any ot her man's claims (or public nlhre, and the minister who does so will soon bung himself into disrepute and forfeit the .self-esteem of the public. A minister's duty lies in another and entirely different chan nel, and ho .should eschew politics iu any puhlio' manner. No doubt it is a preacher's duty, and also of '-every other Christian, to endeavor to elect good and honest men to office, by their votes, but for a preacher to becomoa candidate for political oflice and go arouud mak ing political speeches is degrading to himself, his chinch and to I Chistiauity. Take the case of Kev. Issue S. Kalloch, the workinginen's candi date for mayor of San Faaucisco, who was shot a few weeks t'go by Charles De Young, editor of the lltronwle, ot that city. He was formerly for several years pastor of a Baptist church in Rockland, Maine, where, it is said, he attained much notoriety for hisactivo par ticipation iu party politics iu the interest of the republican party as a co-laborer of Elder B. 1). J'cck, at that titno one of the leading spirits of the radical party in that State, and widely known as a de faulter for a large amount of money while treasurer of the State. Mr. Kalloch subsequently removed to Boston, w here he assumed the pas torate of the Baptist church wor shiping iu Tremont Temple, and whilo there it is said bo became in volved in a social scandal which greatly affected his usefulness aud standing, aud lesultcd in severing his connection with that ohmeh. lie afterwards went to Kansas, where he became involved in some difficulty and had to leave. He is now pastor of the Tabernacle ctnircii, in Han Francisco, one of the largest churches in the United States, and after he went into poli tics again aud became a candidate, the Chronicle newspaper began to rakcover Id's previous tiistory,wldch brought on the difficulty between him aud Do Young. We do not believe politics is ne- cossarially demoralizing, or that a man's character will be damaged by participating in political con tests, but it often results in that ay, particularly where party tecl grnus high,' and there is a close contest foroflicc,andve think. itill becomes a minister of thegwspdt throw himself into a political cam paign, aud go around . making stump speeches and abusing aud denouncing opposing candidates It is lowering his dignity and will eventually result in the people losing confidence and respect for lain. jiusiyjjss rriAOK. From all tho indications J hero seems to bo a general opinion among commercial and business men, both North and Mouth, that there will be a general revival of business this fall and winter. This belief is made manifest iu tho fact that tho merchants iu the cities are preparing for a heavy trade, and are laying in arirer stocks than usual, with tho anticipation of increased business the coming season. Oram crops both in tho North and .South have been good, and should the cotton crop of the South be spared from the worms a few weeks longer, the yield will be above the average, and our fanning interests will pre sent a healthier state than for many years past. On the subject of the business prospect- (lie Boston Font says: " Wheu Mr. Tilden gave it as, his opinion that the next four vears would bo a term of great, if not unexampled, prosperity on a solid basis, ho .undoubtedly voiced the opinion of all the shrewdest busi ness men of the country, and added one more instance of sagacity to tho many by which his life has been distiguished. It is almost inevitable that the era upon which w e are entering should bo full of healthy activity for industry, trade I and commerce. Natural causes and natural laws will make it so. The crisis has been passed, improve ment visible to all discerning eyes has set in. and now all that, is ne cessary for the people of this coun try is to stand aside and not. inter fere with the workings of Provi dence. The feeling of nssiirance and stability for which we have been waiting has taken possession of the various circles of business, and there is gc-jeral belief that as sure as the laws of cause aud effect are kept iii operation, so suro are we to have a better business this coming fall than has been known before since tho period of depres sion fairly set in. If this does not prove so, then some or the best business heads in the country will lose faith in their ability to read the signs." The South, no doubt, is far better oil today than for many years. The people seem to bo more pros perous, business is transacted on a sater and more- solid oanis, and fewer farmers are compelled to pur sue tho ruinous credit system in order 'to make their crops and we believe in a few vears the twelve. I months credit system so largely carried on a few years ago will hardly be known. Factories arc being built every year iu tho South, the people raising, to a larger extent, their own meat and bread, and altogeth er we should feel encouraged at the future prospect.

A. .Dees that the patent for his fuel truck for loading locomotive engines, has is beeiv grauted, and uow there nothing in the way to prevent him successfully introducing this, the most valuable invention for loading engines with - wood or coal, yet in vented. Mr. Does has the indorsement of the loading officials ot the New Or leans and Mobile railroad as to the efficiency of hjs iuventiou. This road has been using these trucks at tins station, for several months. ana tney have tborongldy tested me working of them. Mr. Does expects soon to eomuieueo traveling in the interest of his new invention with a viow of iatrodiiciug the trucks on Ihe diflerent railroads of the United States. There is do doubt of their utility, aud we be lieve they will, in a short time, be auopteu by our various railroads, A very wide distinction, says the New Orleaus Democrat, is made by the-stalwart press between the killing of Dixou in Mississippi and the shooting of Kalloch in Sau Francisco. Theoue is spoken of as a deep laid political plot, and the other as a mere personal difficulty. Tho fact is, that both affairs were purely personal, although both had their origin in politics. The eftect was widely diflerent, however. The shooting of Dixon prevented a po litical riot, Iho'shootingof Kalloch provoked one. The diOerenco has not yet been perceived by the re publican papers, although it is ap parent to every one elso. Dixon is dead and azoois quiet. If Kal loch were to die to-day there would be, almost beyond peradventiue, a riot in the streets of San Francisco, tho consequences of which no i ne can foretell. New York, Sept. 1. The Times'' special from Narragansett Pier, li. 1., states that Mrs.. Ex-tlov. Sprague left"her homo at Canon- ciiet Saturday, taking with her three daughters, and adds: "This latest step not only revives, fhe scandal, but presents some new phases of it, and freshly kindles public interest as to what the out come of the whole matter w ill he. Mrs. Sprague went away, it is un derstood, without her husband's concent, and, despite not only his but as it would seem, other and more potent opposition.' It was stated soon after tho unhappy la dy's return to her home that she was immediately placed under es pionage, Jthougu this was denied by various friends of the persons most interested. The belief has been general heio that the state ment w;is ti ne, and that the surveil lance was maintained lip to the time of Mrs. Kprngue's departure. It in stated that everv movement of Mrs. Sprague, since the scandal became public, with the notable ex ception of this unexpected depart ure, has been made under direction and at the dictation of Senator Conkling. It is believed here, that within a day or two Ev Gov. Tlie Sprague will make a full and ex plicit statement of his side of the case." A special to the Sun states that Mrs. Sprague Jeft Canonchet man sion because of ill-treatment and violence on thepartof her husband and that she made her escape only by eluding tho vigilance of her husband, who endeavored to pre vent it, and even made an unsuc cessful attempt to find her on one of the trains. It, is surmised she left on a steam yacht. Governor Spraguc's son remains with him. Memphis. September 2. Two new cases were reported to mo board of health this morning. Lour deaths have occurred since last night. The fever has evidently gained a foothold at Bimtin station, six miles east of the city, on the Mem phis and Chariest on railroad. Eight eases are reported iu that immedi ate neighborhood. lfaiu has been falling since mid night. Memphis, Tenu., September 2. Evening. Twenty-eight cases in all thirteen white and fifteen col oredwere reported to the lioard of health to-day. No additional deaths have occurred since uooli. The national board of health have approved of the plan submit ted by Hon. John Johnson, super intendent of quarantine, for the es tablishment of a quarantine picket, encircling the entire city and suburbs. Fifty mounted men will be assigned to patrol duty at once, to enl'nreo this new quarantine reg ulation. NO FEVER AT GRENADA. Memphis, Tenn., September 2.
