Yesterday, expressions of regret
were heard on all sides of the re

so ably filled tbe position here.
He has endeared himself to all the

He will leave for Maoon in a few
days and will probably preach
there tiunday next.
Dr. J. B. Johnstone, who will now
take the first chnrch here, comes
from BarnesvUle, going to that
place from Dalton. He la a young
man, not over thirty, but has made
great reputation aa a preacher
and pastor. Those who have heard
him are loud In their praise, aad he

mendatlons. No minister of his
age Is better thought of, both aa re
