The Presbvterian Svnod of Tennessee is in session here with about 300 delegates in attend ance, representing the six Presbyteries in the State, lhe Kev. w. rl. eel. of Memphis, was chosen Moderator by acclamation. The svnod devoted to-day to routine work, including the appointment of committees and the hearing of reports. The Memphis and U estern Presby teries, which recently became a part of this synod, were to-day formally welcomed. Rev. John P. McFerrin preached at the First Methodist church Weanesday night on the text, "Add to your faith, knowledge : and to kuowlledge. tem perance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, brotherly kindness: and to brotherly kindness, charity," etc; 2 Peter 1 :5-6-7. A large crowd was present, for those who know John P. McFerrin, always expect to hear something rich in the way of a spiritual feast. They were not disappointed in this, for the preacher was in one of his happiest, tenderest moods. In his dis course he laid especial stress upon "patience;" said, we were too prone to excuse or own faults, and make mountains of the faults of others ; we have patience with our own weaknesses, but none with those of others. We trust the seeds of patience and charity that were sown last night will take root in the hearts of all the listeners E resent, and bring forth a rich harvest. r. McFerrin returned 'yesterday to his home in Birmingham. The Holiness meetrng closed Sunday night, and the tent was folded away for the winter.
