home, and with your permission I will do
so through the Register. Our trip on the
steamer to San Francisco was exceedingly
pleasant. Old ocean was unusually quiet,
and we were always ready for our meals
when the appropriate hour arrived. By
request of the Captain, I preached twice
on Sabbath to an attentive congregation.
Mr. Suclier, well known in your city, was

to say to the Albany people that "the old

We have since learned that Mr. Ter

between Nye's and Ames' creek, discov
ered a little two-year old child right in the
road, up to its armpits in the mud. The
child was attended by two hound pups,
and the indications were that the pups had
done their best to extricate their little mas

pulled the little fellow out, and conveyed
him to the nearest house, Mr. Clement's,
where the little fellow was washedLnp.Jiud
inquiries set on foot to ascertain the pa

Corn looks good in Michigan but the
wheat crop was not as large as usual. In
New Jersey the weather lias been exceed

large crop of peaches, and they are very

about 50 cents per bushel.
I will say for the encouragement of the
friends of Hayes and Wheeler, that a vote
was taken for the two candidates on the

llow different from what they were thirty
or forty years ago I The oltl-tashioueu
enmptneeting, so memorable in the history
of thousjiiids throughout the country, is
rapidly giving way to modern improve
ments. Instead oi the plain tents, neat
and beautiful cottages have been erected,
and in many places stores and hotels have
befn built to accommodate the thousands
who gather annually tor worship in the
wood and by the sea-side. .Yet irt many
respects the esmpmeetings remain the
same. The glorious hymns our fathers and
mothers loved to sing, tnnll our hearts,
and the same blessed Gospel which inspired
their souls and made them happy, flllsand
comforts our hearts. It is to oe hoped that
these pleasant gatherings will multiply
and spread everywhere, and continue to be
what they have b;eu in the past, a great
blessing to the Church and the world.
