Dr. J. J. Ross has returned to the city.
Mr. Mack, of St. Louis, left the city yesterday for Helena and points south.
We find this item of news in the St. Louis Republican: “Governor Augustus Hill Garland, of Arkansas, is a native of Tipton county, Tennessee. His mother removed to Arkansas when the governor was quite a lad. He is a nephew of Colonel Charles H. Hill and Dr. Lafayette Hill, of Covington, Tennessee.”
A Greenville, Tennessee, letter of the twenty-eighth, to the Knoxville Chronicle, says: “Rev. Bishop C. T. Quintard has been spending a few days with us, looking after one of his scattered flocks, trying to gather them within his fold. In this he has been quite successful, and could his inspiring presence be prolonged he would collect quite a large congregation of those who believe in the Episcopal faith. The bishop preached a very eloquent and impressive sermon on Sunday morning, on the subject of “Christian Charity,” taking his text from the parable of the good Samaritan, as found in the tenth chapter of Luke. In the afternoon the rites of baptism and confirmation were performed by him.”
