The fact was re- cently demonstrated on Bay street, when a prominent business man. Interested in shipping circles, and who had, for many years, been a rover of the seas, was made the butt of a joke by a few of his friend?. He is a "natural bettor, and recent- ly made a wager with a friend, the forfeit being a half dozen 40-cent cigars. He could not smoke any weed that cost less. The bet was won by the “ancient mariner” and it was paid promptly. Six handsomely decorated cigars. Wrapped neatly in tin foil were presented to him, It was his favorite brand—thit is the outside wrap- per conveyed that Impression—but on the inside had been placed “two-fors,” and the self-assuming judge of fine cigars was not aware of the fact until he was smoking the last of the lot, when his friends gave him the laugh. The British steamship Axminster, from Barry, arrived last night, consigned to Wilder & Cos. She is chartered to load with a caTgo of cotton for Genoa. Editor Morning News: In the marine column of your paper of Monday, the 4th Instant, appeared an account of the ar- rival at Tybee of the steamship City of Macon on fire, where assistance was ten- dered by the tow boat Cynthia, no men- tion being made of the service rendered by the steam pilot boat John H. Estill. While we are not hunting for glory, we would like the people interested In ship- ping to know that our vessel can be de- pended upon at all times to render assist- ance to vessels in distress, and this (s not the first instance in which assistance was rendered without expectation of recom- pense and for which we teceived no credit. On Saturday night, April 2, while the pilot boat was on her station she was signaled by the steamship City of Macon, whose captain reported that his ship was on tire, and asked the pilot boat to lay by him. The pilot boat at once responded, and accom- panied the Macon to Tybee roads, prepared to take off her passengers or render any other assistance that might he necessary, took her chief officer to telegraph station! ordered the tow boat Cynthia to her, and reported again to the captain, all of which was done with the Idea only of saving life and property, and with no thought of pay and for which we received no credit M.

Chnreh of Christ Tabernacle, In a large fraipe tabernacle, just com- pleted. at the comer of Barnard and Wald- burg streets, Evangelist J. A. L. Romig of Michigan will begin a series of meet- ings to-night, which is expected to continue over a period of two months or more. The meetings will be under the direction of the Church of Christ, on Bolton street. The tabernacle has a seating capacity of about eight hundred, .and. with crowd- ing, will accommodate fully one thousand persons. It was built especially for these services by the Church of Christ. It is the belief of those who have had charge of the arrangements that the capacity of the building will soon be fully taxed, Mr. Romig having everywhere met with signal success in his meetings, audiences of a thousand or more gathering to hear him after a few services in towns of much smaller population than Savannah. Mr. Romig is said to he a born evange- list. lie is peculiarly fitted for this work, several weeks to listen to his simple pre- sentation ot the scriptural teachings. North, South and West he has met with the same results, and It is the confident expectation that equal good will result from his work In this city. Mr. Romlg arrived from New York on the steamer last night. He Is accompan- ied by Evangelist T. E. Jones, who as- sists in the meetings. Mr. Jones is a tenor singer, with a voice of much sweetness, well trained, and Is a potent factor in all the services. Mr. Romig will make his initial remarks at the meetings at the Christian Church this morning, and to- night the meetings will begin for an in- definite time in the tabernacle.

Interested inshipping circles, and who had, for manyyears, been a rover of the seas, was madethe butt of a joke by a few of his friend?.He is a "natural bettor, and recent-ly made a wager with a friend, the forfeitbeing a half dozen 40-cent cigars. Hecould not smoke any weed that cost less.The bet was won by the “ancient mariner”and it was paid promptly. Six handsomelydecorated cigars. Wrapped neatly in tinfoil were presented to him, It was hisfavorite brand—thit is the outside wrap-per conveyed that Impression—but on theinside had been placed “two-fors,” and theself-assuming judge of fine cigars was notaware of the fact until he was smokingthe last of the lot, when his friends gavehim the laugh.

Thepilot boat at once responded, and accom-panied the Macon to Tybee roads, preparedto take off her passengers or render anyother assistance that might he necessary,took her chief officer to telegraph station!ordered the tow boat Cynthia to her, andreported again to the captain, all of whichwas done with the Idea only of saving lifeand property, and with no thought of payand for which we received no credit

Chnreh of Christ Tabernacle,In a large fraipe tabernacle, just com-

pleted. at the comer of Barnard and Wald-burg streets, Evangelist J. A. L. Romigof Michigan will begin a series of meet-ings to-night, which is expected to continueover a period of two months or more. Themeetings will be under the direction ofthe Church of Christ, on Bolton street.

The tabernacle has a seating capacityof about eight hundred, .and. with crowd-ing, will accommodate fully one thousandpersons. It was built especially for theseservices by the Church of Christ. It isthe belief of those who have had chargeof the arrangements that the capacity ofthe building will soon be fully taxed, Mr.Romig having everywhere met with signalsuccess in his meetings, audiences of athousand or more gathering to hear himafter a few services in towns of muchsmaller population than Savannah.

Mr. Romig is said to he a born evange-list. lie is peculiarly fitted for this work,

several weeks to listen to his simple pre-sentation ot the scriptural teachings.North, South and West he has met withthe same results, and It is the confidentexpectation that equal good will resultfrom his work In this city.

Mr. Romlg arrived from New York onthe steamer last night. He Is accompan-ied by Evangelist T. E. Jones, who as-sists in the meetings. Mr. Jones is a tenorsinger, with a voice of much sweetness,

well trained, and Is a potent factor in allthe services. Mr. Romig will make hisinitial remarks at the meetings at theChristian Church this morning, and to-night the meetings will begin for an in-definite time in the tabernacle. Serviceswill be held every night in the week, withthe probable exception of Saturday night,and special services will be arranged forthe afternoons. Rev. E. A. Bosworth,pastor of the church, will assist in themeetings. The subjects so far announcedare as follows:
