to persons who have not heard the

The Tenuessce Jubilee Singers
offer one of the best entertainments
that has visited St. Louis for years.
They gave two concerts this week,
both nights' to crowded houses.
Their rendition of the old planta
tion song's, 3ad .melodies, camp
meeting choruses, etc., was perfect
and uataral. One of these concerts
is a correct portraiture of what
might be called the religious side of
the old plantation life. Their songs
are full of melody, yet partake of
the uucultnred character of the
times and social position which they
represent. The Jubilee Singers are
just what they represent themselves
to be, and the entertainment is just
what is claimed for'it. .' Louis

The fire alarm on Wednesday
evening was caused by an accident
at the store of Wm. Eimers, on 13lh
street. The shelving on one side of
the store room, having the appear
ance of giving way, Mr. E. was ex
amining it,-, and for that purpose
stood upon a step-ladder, when, by
some mishap, he fell, the. candle
which he held in his hand coming in
contact with and igniting some cot
ton batting on the top shelves, al
most instantly creating a big blaze?
to the imminent peril of the whole
block. With the assistance of citi
zens and firemen tho flames were
soon subdued by carrying in
water in buckets. The damage by
fire and water used to quench it,
was considerable, but was covered,
by insurance in the JEtua of Hart
ford and tho German of Frceport,
represented by Bechcr & Reynolds,
and on Saturday Mr. Bccher was
engaged in estimating the amount
with a view to paying the same.
Speaking philosophically, so
ciety may be- classified into three
grand divisions, in matters of opin
ion, faith aud practice. As in cli
mate we have the torrid, frigid and'
temperate zones, so iu mattecs of
sentiment there are the zealots," the
indifferents and the moderate ; thc
lirst, if- lefbfree-to act, would force
everything to tally with their way
of thinking; the second believe they
are not their brother's keeper, and'
borrow no trouble from any source:
the thirdj.abatiug "the unwise z"eaj
of the first, and deprecating the cold
unconcern of the second, endeavor,
by timely action, to bring about the
greatest practical good, "with tho"
least possible ill. If human actions
(of individuals, communities and
nations) are uarrowly watched, it
will found that the best and safest
are the temperate, the moderate, the
self-controlled, the steady and sure
the golden mean between the ex
tremes the virtue between excesses.
