numbers somewhat decreased; but there was never a pause in the unceasing intercession for nearly fourteen hours. Our witness, and we were there at 10, at 12, at 3.30, and remained right on till 8.30, is this ;-It was a season of importunate prayer, which cau no more fail to be answered than the Lord himself can change. All were not present who should have been, but there were among the assembly, at some time or other during the day, a very large proportion of the church-members; and those who prayed were enabled to draw very near to God in ardent faith. It was a holy day. During a part of the time a church-meeting was being held in another room, so that some of those who had come forward might confess Christ before his people. At the day's close many more seekers came forward, and male and female helpers were busy in conversation and prayer with persons convicted and enquiring. All was quiet as a summer's eve, but the dew of the Lord was there, and beneath its influence the living seed revealed itself. Before all was over the Pastor's new company of helpers met together to receive a word from him, and to rehearse to each other how they had sped in search after souls. TUESDAY Evening was a very happy one.

About a thousand children came together to bear good words concerning Jesus. There was no tea, no music, no magic lantern to attract the boys and girls, but they came in eagerly, listened as attentively as a congregation of grown-up people, and rushed to shake the pastor by the hand with a loving zeal which made one think of the children in the temple of old. The law and the gospel, their own bearts and the Spirit's work were faithfully spoken of to the children by the various speakers, and an evident feeling of interest and awe rested on the assembly. There had been much prayer for a blessing, and it came, as time will show. While we were talking to the young folks below, their mothers were upstairs holding a prayermeeting that the Lord would help us. Thus prayer and effort went hand-inhand,

WEDNESDAY Evening's Meeting was a very interesting one. Tea was given to servants, and to the poor women of our mother's meeting. The celerity with which provisions vanished reminded us of the way in which a heavy sea in a storm will clear the decks of a vessel. We had evidently gathered, besides the well-dressed domestic servants, a class of the poorest description, and we were delighted to see that they were quite as earnest in listening to the gospel as they had been in demolishing the feast. Despite the innumerable babies, the attention was rapt and eager, and we are persuaded that the seed fell on wellprepared soil. Here we pause, for the printer calls for copy. If spared we will finish the outline next month-it may stimulate others.

As perhaps our friends will like to see what the rest of the meetings are to be, we append the remainder of the list:
