The r(ew Colored Church
The colored people of this place have
fitted up the somewhat dilapidated
building on Moore street, in the upper
end' of town, and are now holding their
regular meetings in the seine. This
now church will answer every purpose
for the present, being fully able to con
tain at least two hundred persons.—
They have now a neat altar and com
fortable pews, the latter of which, un
like those in other churches, are wide
enough to admit of free ingress and
ogress, without the incident dangers
to extended hoop-skirts. Rev. Daniel
Matthews, their preacher, spoke on
Sunday evening last on the text,
"Ilene, merle, tekel, upharsin," inter
preted by the original Daniel before
King Belshazzar, and again interpret
ed by this modern Daniel, with this
addition that he interpreted the origi
nal Daniel a little more than the text,
which interpretation was very plain
and easily understood by his audience,
who exhibited their pleasure at differ
ent times during the-sermon by vari
ous ejaculations, and other demonstra
tions. At the close the reverend gen
tleman announced that quarterly meet
ing had commenced, and, as ho went
so fur to say, it was usual among black
and white preachers to solicit money
on such occasions, he would therefore
ask for ten dollars. The following is
the logic, in brief, that he used :
Friends, I want ten dollars. Ah,
but you say, Mr. Preacher, that is too
much. I say no it ain't; for if you
give a bull a dollar or a dollar, you
wouldn't miss it, and the Lord will
bless you. Then you what chew to
bacco, can't you try and not chow so
bard hereafter, and spend only fifty
cents next week where you spent
dollar last week. [While on this sub
ject ho advised tobacco chewers not to
chew "So hard" in church, but to chew
hard and quick before they come. Ile
said he was excusing tobacco-chewers
in order to excuse himself, and he ad
vised the trustees to get him a spit
box as he could not help spitting in
the . pulpit.] Now, continued he, you
mon what are not temperance men try
and not drink so much next week.—
W hero you drink ono glass don't
drink three. [We would rather he
had advised them not to drink at all,
rather than to have partially excused
them.] He then asked the ladies to
subscribe one dollar out of the ten they
had saved for a new , bonnet telling
them that the Lord would provide.—
lie then told them at, "antidote" of a
man who lost S 5 going from church
which he fortunately picked ap. After
giving it back he toll the man to put
half of it in the contribution holt,
which he did the same evening, and
how the next day the man got $5 from
a debtor which ho never expected.
We did not learn how much money
he got, but we think it wasn't far off
the required sum. The meeting closed
after a short interval of prayer, and
after the preacher announced there
would be Freaching; the next evening,
We almost forgot to mention that
the church is well whitewashed inside
to make up partiagy for the poor ven
tilation—the intention of which , is bet
ter understood than explained. Well
behaved white folks are not debarred
As an evidence of what can be done
by children, when they undertake a
thing, we mention the following inci
dent : In the Methodist Sunday School
ofthis place, which numbers about two
hundred pupils, an enterprise was got
ten up about a month ago by which
the centenary fund of that donemina.
tion was to be augmented. in order to
induce the children to subscribe, a
medal was offered to each child that
would contribute a dollar. The chil
dren, impelled perhaps by the reward,
and by the desire to receive some grat
ification in having swelled the fund,
whatever it might be, immediately set
to work and by their individual efforts
displayed in different ways, sixty-six
out of the two hundred children brought
in their dollars. Even Ibis proportion
ii too small, for many of the larger ones
cared not for subscribing for a medal,
thinking, perhaps, it was too childish.
The proportion might be better if wo
would say 66 out of 150. This inci
dent only shows what children can do
when they try; how much more ought
older children to do when they under
take anything! It gives older ones
no room for saying they have co influ

Interesting to Farmers Regarding
Internal Revenue Tax Decisions.
The following is very important to
farmers, the decisions have recently
been given by the CommisSlime'. of In.
ternul Revenue at Washington.
Ist. Farmers will not be required to
to make return of produce consumed
in their own immediate families.
2d. The farmer's profits from sales
of live stock are to be found from de
ducting from the gross receipts for an
imals sold, the purchase money paid
for the same. If animals have been
lost during the year by death or rob
bery, the purchase money paid for such
animals may be deducted from the
gross income of the farm.
3d. No deductions can be made by
the farmer for the value of services
rendered by his minor children, wheth
er be actually pays. for such services
or not. If adult children work for him
and receive compensation, for their
labor, they are to be regarded as other
hired laborers in determining his in
4th. Money paid for labor, except
such as is used or employed in domes
tic service, or iii the production of ar
ticles consumed in the family of the
producer, may be deducted.
sth. No deduction can be allowed in
any case for the cost of unproductive
labor. If house servants are employ
ed a portion of the time in productive
labor, such as the making of butter
and cheese for sale, a proportionate
amount of the wages paid them may
Gth. Expenses for ditching and clear.
ing now land aro plainly CXOCIISCI3 for
permanent improvement, and not de
The whole amount expended
for fertilizers applied during the year
to the farmer's land may be deducted,
but no deduction is allowed for fertili
zers produced on the farm. The cost
of seed purchased for sowing and plant
ing may be deducted.
Bth. If a person sells timber standing,
the profits are to be obtained by esti
mating the value of the land after the
removal of the timber, and from the
sum thus obtained, deducting the esti
mated value of land on the Ist day of
January, 1862, or on the day of pur
chase, if purchased since that date.
9th. Where repairs have been made
by the tax-payer upon any building
owned by hint during the preceding
five years, nothing can be deducted
for repairs made during the year for
which his income is estimated.
10th. A farmer should make returns
of his produce sold within the year,
but a mere executory contract fin• a
sale is not a sale; delivery, either
active or constructive, is essen
tial. The criterion by which to judge
whether a sale is complete or not is to
determine whether. the vendor still re
tains in that character a right over
the property ; it the property were
lost or destroyed, upon which parties,
in the absence of any other relation
between them titan that of the vendor
and vendee, would the loss fall. .
A Fiendish Alit bye. Devil Incarnate
The barn of Win. J. Closhorn of Tell
township, this County, was utterly
consumed with all its contents on the
morning of the 23d inst.., by being set
fire to by a desperado named Joseph
Matthews, who resides in Blacking
Valley approached the premises of Mr.
Goshorn .the morning aforesaid,
making demands of Mr. Goshorn which
ho refuses to concede ; whereupon
Matthews entered the barn, and delib
eratery set fire to the hay; al! the
while holding Mr. Goshorn at bay from
extinguishing the flames, with rifle
and pistols with which he was armed,
until the fire had full sway. He then
made for Shade Mountain across the
fields of Mr. Uoshorn, shooting and
killing three of his horses to complete
his fiendish deed. Matthews is still at
large. One hundred dollars aro offer
ed for his arrest. The barn was a now
one yet unfinished. No insurance.—
A Milt totioneekeoper•
Potatoes are a very common article.
Everybody uses them more or less.
Those who buy and use in large quan
tities, generally purchase them at about
wholesale prices. Working people,
however, almost uniformly buy them
by the small measure at rates equiva
lent to full fifty per cent. advance on
the market figures for oven single bar
rels. Now, a barrel of good potatoes
can be had at about $2. This barrel
will hold equal to three bushel baskets,
making the cost of a bushel of potatoes
about sisty.seven cents. if a family
cannot purchase a barrel ; two or three
can combine and do so, divide it fairly
between them and LIM save the profit
that would have been exacted by the
The grain and flour dealers contend
that grain and flour will go up still
higher. It is not the scarcity of wheat
us much as it is the will of the farmers
and speculators ',hat flour is forced up.
It will come down as soon as farmers
think it is high enough and speculators
get weak in the knees. We advise a
free nso of corn and buckwheat for a
month or two.
