Ami in order to have har mony, Iho Kin oft ought to be ehiistiatiH How can a inau iraiso ('oil iieei'ptably hen there is no love for God iu bis heart f A great deal of the proverbial trouble with chin eb choirs crows out of (he fact that the siugers are not christians. Mr. San key does not. object to quar tet choirs but he would have n large chorus choir around the iptar tet, to join it in certain parts. He liked solos und special pieces by trained singeir, yet he would have only one or two such pieces during any one service, and would have tit least two hymns iu which the whole congregation could join, lie snys that tbo minister should join in the singing, and not be fumbling over his notes as it he had nothing to do with praising Ood, Tuejinin ister should uot only sing himself, but urge all to sing. Choirs ought to behave like ladies and gentle men. Thev have no businosa tn be whispering, or flirting, gr read ing newspapers wuuo tne minister is preaching. They ought to sing distinctly, so that the congregation can . understand the words. The church is not an opera, to gratify a taste for artistic music. It should furnish the music that will nleuso and edify the majority of the wor- BuippetH, and not merely a cultured and fastidious few. The children should be bt on q li t to Jhe church aud accustomed to take part in the singing, iu air. Spurgeou's church the children all sit together and great pains are taken to train thetu in singing. , Ministers ought to pray lor a special blessiug on the singing. It is a means of grace as well as the Scripture reading and the sermou. Aud, Dually the hymns and the sermon ought to be in harmony, . We congratulate our editorial brother, Mr. Jus, l. Neville, of the Kemper Herald, in his tiotninatiou for district attorney of the seventh judicial district, by the conVeution held on the oth nst., in Waynes boro. Mr. Nevillo is a very intelli gent young man, an cscellenj .law yer, as ,is proven by the largo amount of business be ljus been re ceiving in the courts. He is a native of, Sumter, county, Alu., and came iuto Mississippi in 1373. We do not know whether bo will have an opponent or not, hot trust that the good perpltj of his district wjll give him .a rousing .majority over any that may oppose.

Dear Sir: In answer to your communication of this date in re gard to the article in to-days Co-r-ion copied from the New Orleans Time-Democrat of a recent date, under the caption of ''Four years in the South," I reply as follows: The wiiter in drawing a comparison between the assessments ot 187!) and 1883 makes a most egregious error aud one calculated to do great injustice to Mississippi, lie sets down the total assessed valuation of realty and personalty for 1879 at $120,308,345 anil of 1883 tit $110, 288,810, tht'8 showing a decrease in valuation fr om 1879 to 1883 inclu sive of 113,019,535.

From thosu three we have au average increase in valuation, over 1879, of 1155,225 which would make at the sumo ratio ofgaiu in tho seventy-four counties, the sum ot 811,480,050, or total val uation of realty and personalty for 1883 of 118,081, 358. , Of course there may bo a considerable vuria tion iu thisti latter figures when all ot the assessment rolls are received, us we can only approximate the true uuiount by takiug tbu assess ments of the three counties already reported as a basis of calculation, bat there is evidence to believe that the increase for the year 1833 will far exceed the above lijurca.
