Beresford, G. Goodall, R. Calvert, and R. Day (Independents), and C. J. Potts, with the local secretary, Mr. Kelsall, rendered able and valuable assistance. The writer was absent from these meetings, on the Missionary Deputation to the North, but was happy to find on his return that all the services had been numerously attended, that the collections were in advance of previous years, and that the good cause had taken a firmer hold on the judge ments and affections of the people than before.

ANNIVERSARY SERVICES AT StarFORD CHAPEL.—These services have ben of an highly interesting and instructive character. The first sermon was preached, Nov. 3rd, by the Rev. P. T. Gilton; the other, Nov. 10th, by the Rev. S. Hulme. The impressions made under these ministrations we hope will issue in saving and eternal effects. On Monday, Nov. 11th, the annual tea festival took place in the school, when about four hundred persons enjoyed, amidst the most exhilarating associations, not only refreshing tea, but the cheering society of Christians and other friends. At the after meeting, which was held in the chapel, in the absence of the Mayor, the Rev. W. Salt, with much interest, presided. Scldom, if ever, have we witnessed stronger religious and pleasing impressions produced on an audience than were felt and visibly expressed by the numerous assembly under the addresses which were delivered on the happy occasion. Al together the pecuniary aid received, amounted to about £40.

We are happy in being able to state that our day school is going on pros. perously; we have more than 300 names on the books, and an average attendance of about 200. This circumstance may afford stimulus and encouragement to other circuits to attempt the establishment and working of day schools.

MISSIONARY SERVICES.-DEWSBURY CIRCUIT.-On Lord's day, Oct. 20th, two excellent sermons were preached at Dewsbury, by the Rev. G. W. Ridley. The following Monday evening the Annual Meeting was held, when our valuable friend, Mr. John Jub, of Batley, took the chair, and opened the meeting by an appropriate speech. He was ably sustained by Mr. Crampton, of Hunslet, the Revs. G. W. Ridley, J. Livingston, J. Candelet, the preachers in the circuit, and other ministers of the town.

On the same Sabbath, two sermons, on behalf of our mission, were preached at Mirfield, by the Superintendent of the circuit; and on Tuesday evening following the Public Meeting was held, when our esteemed friend, Mr. Crampton, who presided with his usual good feeling, stated the object of the meeting. Addresses were also delivered by most of the ministers who assisted at Dewsbury the previous evening.

The speakers at both mectings appear to have been aided by the Holy Spirit, a gracious influence was experienced, greater interest, we hope, was excited on behalf of a perishing world; and the collections at both places were an advance upon those of the preceding year.

MISSIONARY SERVICES. — Ashton CIRCUIT.-On Sunday, Oct. 20th, the Annual Sermons on behalf of our Missions, were preached at Dukinfield, by the Rev. C. J. Donald, of Manchester; and at Hyde and Hooley Hill, by the Rev. S. Jones, of Stockport. In the following week the Annual Missionary Meetings were held at the above places, and also at Higher Hurst; the Revs. G. Goodall, B. Turnock, James Dean, Esq., and Mr. Samuel Mills, officiating as chairmen. The Revs. C. J. Donald, S. Jones, S. Woodhouse, W.

MissioNARY ANNIVERSARY.-NORTH SHIELD'S CIRCUIT.-On Sunday, Oct. 20th, the annual sermons in aid of our missions were preached in Salem and and West Holborn chapels, by the Revs. William Mills and Josiah Howard (the deputation), and the Rev. Thomas Boy. cott, of Newcastle. On Tuesday, a public meeting was held at West Holborn, and on Wednesday at Salem. Our respected friend, Mr. J. D. Welch, presided on each occasion. The Report was read by the Rev. A. M'Curdy, and the meetings were addressed by the

esteemed deputation, the Revs. W. Cocker, T. Boycott, and J. Bensley.

The attendance on the Sabbath services, and at the public meetings, was good, considering the unfavourable state of the atmosphere. The services of all the brethren, for which we are truly grateful, were highly esteemed; but it is only just to say, that the pleasure derived from the excellent discourses and speeches of the Rev. W. Mills, was increased by his presence, as an old and beloved friend, he having tra. velled in this circuit when he was a young man.


MISSIONS. SHEFFIELD NORTH. The services recently held in the circuit in behalf of our Missions are thus adverted to by the “Sheffield and Rotherham Independent” of the 9th inst. : On Sunday last, two sermons, in aid of this religious denomination missions, were preached in Scotland Street Chapel, by the Rev. J. Hudston, of Nottingham. The sermons were appropriate, instructive, effective; that in the evening especially was distinguished by peculiar adaptation to our times, lottiness and richness of thought, and propriety and beauty of language. The rev. gentle man has received a very general request to place the manuscript without delay in the hands of the publisher. On

Monday evening, the annual meeting was held in the same place of worship, Mr. Councillor Crowther in the chair. After a brief, but neat and appropriate speech from the chairman, the Rev. J. Stokoe read the report, which was very satisfactory. In every department, financial and statistical, there was proof of additional vigour and commendable enterprize.” The meeting was afterwards addressed with ability by the Revs. S. Bellamy (Independent), W. Jeferson (Primitive), J. Hudston, J. H. Robinson, J. Poxon, and Mr. G. Fox. The collection, after these services, and kindred ones at Malin Bridge and Attercliffe, was about £22, being a slight increase on those of last year.

The sermons at Attercliffe and Malin Bridge were preached on Sunday, Nov. 3rd, by the Revs. J. H. Robinson and J. Stokoe ; and the meetings held at those places on the 5th and 6th were presided over by Mr. George B. Fox and Mr. Timothy Scott, Sheffield.

Sheffield, Nov. 9th. J. STOKOE.

P.S.-We were gratified to see our young friend, the Rev. W. N. Hall, on the platform, at the meeting held in Scotland Street Chapel. With great care and the divine blessing this esteemed brother, it is hoped, will soon be restored to his wonted health and usefulness,

THE LAITY IN CONVOCATION.--At the dinner which succeeded the visitation of the Bishop of Chichester, held at Lewes a few weeks ago, his lordship said: “It may be interesting to you to learn, that if a Synod of the Church be assembled in Convocation or otherwise, it is the unanimous opinion of the whole bench of Bishops, without a single exception-I repeat it, without a single exception that there should be a considerable infusion of the lay element in its constitution.” I will not be quite positive that these were the exact words used, but they were to this precise effect. -Correspondent of the Guardian.

AN IMPORTANT GEOLOGICAL Dis. COVERY has just been made at Applecross, on the west coast of Scotland. A large mountain called “Tore More,” on being accidentally excavated the other day, presented a substratum of pure lime, within five feet of the surface; and on prosecuting the discovery by a fur..

ther excavation, it was ascertained beyond the shadow of doubt, that the whole mountain, except an average surface of twenty feet, consists of lime fit for the field, or the mason, the result of organic heat. The hill appears to have been at one time a stupendous limestone rock, submitted to the influence of immense heat.

A NOVEL IMPORTATION.-A correspondent of a morning paper says:“ It may be interesting to many of your protestant readers to be informed, that on the 4th of November instant nine cases were imported into London, in the steam-boat City of Boulogne, containing 21,000 crucifixes of different sizes, from one inch to two feet, several thousand figures of the Virgin Mary, and a large quantity of prints of bleeding hearts, &c., besides an immense number of rosaries and charms, probably in anticipation of a large conversion of our population to Romanism."
