friends, visiting the battie-tield there,
and although everything about the
battle-grounds has been so greatly j
change! in recent rears, yet with the
kind assistance of Capt. Geo. Cowan.
of Franklin, the Bishop succeeded in
locating rnanv points of interest
connected with the battle. Bishop
Capers was Colonel of the 24th South
Carolina Volunteers, and was wounded
in the battle of Franklin. His regi
ment captured the only flag taken from
the Federals in that bloody conflict.
After the battle of Franklin Gen. Howl

Capers returned the flag he captured
to the snrvivers or the n Uhio, irotn
whom it was taken, at their reunion

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.
