November 22, 1883. Editor Courieu: The Argus in last week's number had the statement that Rev. Wyllis Hall had resigned the pastorate of St. Andrews church because lus health had been poor for some time- he wanted a year's respite- he would fill the pulpit unhl it should be permanently supplied. The three statements are not true; he has been sick sonie time ago, but is quite well, he does not want a year's respite to recupérate and does not need it, and iinolly he will not continue toofficiate as teinporary pastor of the parish. One member of St. Andrews. A crazy man named James Rabbit, sou of widow Rabbit living north of Dexter, wandered off from home last August. But iittle search was made for him, and the last seen of him was in a crauberry swamp iu September when he drove away some children who were picking berries. Tuesday nis body was found lying partially in a creek, running through the farm of Mr. Edward Ferris. The part in the water was not badly decomposed, and it is not thought that he had been dead very long. Only a shirt was on the body. He was about 25 years old and unmarried. The coroner's verdict was that he carne to his death through the criminal negligence of tiis mother and brother. . Rev. R. B. Bope's Snnday evening discourse was of too much importance only to be heard by the limited number which could get in the church at that service, so a stenographer was present who took a full report of it, and it will be put in pamphlet form to be sold at Boughton's news stand the early part of next week. It ought to receive quite a general distributlon among the citizens and their families, as points were freely discussed which are too infrequently mentioned. Licentionsness in its various hideous forms was handled without gloves, and the doctors - a class which best knows the truth concerning the matter- back the reverend gentleman's charges. They afflrin that abortion is a crime of increasing frequency, and as no law can properly reach it, the offense must be abated, if it be abated, by public sentiment. Then, since false modesty usually checks people from discussing such matters in their families, there is no better way than to put into their hands a calm, clear statement of the facts. They are horrible enough, but people must be horritied sometimes. Three hundred murders in Ann Arbor in seven years; in the world, one every minute'. Our university town has a goodly reputation for its morals.but licentionsness nevertheless, does have in lts borders a strong hold on the passions of mankind. No cornmon council has power; no legislature can enact further laws ; no congress or parliament can do more. It must be thought of and resolved upon in the hearts of the people. Then only can it be stamped out. To that end the discourse is worthy to be put in t3pe, ánd carefully read.
