Hog and Hominy.--A “Lady of Richmond” writes to the N. Y. Daily News of the sensation created in the Southern churches when the chapter “Blow ye the trumpet of Zion,” from the Book of Joel, was read. This chapter contains the Lord's promise to send to the people “corn, and wine, and oil.” Thus the lady gives that promise:--“Then will the Lord be jealous for his land, and pity his people. Yea, the Lord will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send ye corn, and swine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith.”

Swine to the congregation! This was “addressed first to the ancient Jews,” the lady says. No doubt the porky part of this must be considered as Scripture adapted to the latitude of Dixey.--Springfield Banner, May 4.
