Annual statement of the operation Sand receipts of the american Bible society in Eastern Ohio for the year ending March sipa., a in dosing the another year it is due to the numerous friends and patrons of the Bible cause in Eastern Ohio that a Brief statement should be presented of the operations and results of the year. The policy pursued has been the same As delineated in my previous annual statements. A. The cause has been a amp Only conducted As heretofore through the medium of county and Branch or township societies of which we now have about Twenty two counties of Eastern Ohio. The excellence and efficiency of this system As developed in the growing results irom year to year continue to commend it to the Hearty cooperation of the Frienda it of the Bible. Nothing we believe Butr the intrinsic excellence of the system itself could have prevented a fearful diminution in the receipts of the society from this Field the past year. There has however been but a slight falling off from. Those of the preceding year 1. The obstacles to the Progress of the work As All must know Quot have been great and formidable still our societies have kept at work doing what they could and none of them we Are Happy to know have fallen into Eta Onaney or decay. The motive Power Irr All these societies is the admirable machinery of local or school District unpaid agencies connected with each of these numerous Are usually from five to ten of these voluntary agents who explore their respective districts annually supplying the destitute with the word of god and collecting funds for the cause. Some of these local agents have been assisted during the year by the travelling agent who has rendered material service to the work while others the Fields assigned them voluntarily and alone they constitute a Noble army of fellow lab carers and to them the cause is greatly indebted for its hse Oess. It will be borne in mind that the work of the Bible society from year to year has Atwo fold nature it has for , not merely the raising of funds and by this Means the distribution of the scriptures abroad but their free and wide dissemination among the destitute masses of our Home population. It i would be Buta limited View of the Workings of the present system of Branch societies to measure their fruit merely by the dollars they have brought into the Treasury. , they Are accomplishing in themselves an important missionary service from year to year they Are each furnished with a Sta blend Well assorted depository of bibles and testaments from which purchasers Are supplied at the society a Cost prices and the needy a without Money and without connected with these society spare about three. Thousand local or unpaid agents through this system and its Kin dred instrumental ties upwards of twelve thousand families have been found destitute and supplied in this state the past year and cases which commend themselves to the Charity of Tolje society Are constantly occurring. There is another department of the society s labors which deserves notice. I refer to the supplying of our sob Diery it has been the aim of the society to place in the hands of every Soldier up already upped a neat pocket edition of the testament or testament and psalms and the regiments raised on my Field have been generally supplied in this Way and viewing the country at Large a work of great magnitude has been accomplished in this directions upwards of six Hundred thousand of our soldiery and marines having been supplied by the society. Who can measure the influence which these messages of gods love May be silently yet effectively we Riding out in the hearts of our Noble self sacrificing soldiery a work so disinterested can but commend itself to every Christian and philanthropic heart and we. Rejoice to know that we Are not left without witness to the Power of that word in come bring the dying Soldier and a kindling Hopes that reach to Ahi ghei and better life. Many encouraging and deeply affecting instances of the fruit of this work have already been brought before the Public. It the work of publication the past year exceeds that of any previous year of the society s operations. The issues were one million and ninety four thousand volumes a being an excess of three Hundred and seventy thousand Over the issues of the preceding year. This has been an average of three thousand five Hundred volumes a Day or six volumes for every minute of working time. The issues in this state this year have been about one thirty thousand volumes of which nearly thirty thousand have been distributed gratuitously to destitute families and our1 in supplied the net receipts from this state the past Yeai have been Twenty eight thousand four Hundred and eighteen european correspondence.

Its sympathies have been always with the South. Russel i a believe latterly was a More Northern in his views cathedrals and churches of splendid architecture have a lately came under Iny notice. Thus i have visited and been \ present at services in the cathedrals of a Gloucester and Salisbury. The town of Gloucester May be regarded As the capital of Gloucestershire. But its population is comparatively Small and like All cathedrals there is a soporific quietude about the place this is somewhat a relieved by a very considerable Trade by canal and river1 the sea at seventeen Miles Distant with of Europe in Timber Corn amp a. The docks Are really Pleu did and the ships and warehouses alike imposing to the Eye of a stranger. Among the merchants in the dockyard is a a or Sturge one of the society of friends who has hanging on outside his office Large placard setting Forth that the attempt to african slave Trade costs the tax payers of the United kingdom �1,000-,000--per annul. Further to indicate his horror of slavery there Are drawings of manacled negroes. As to the religious reminiscences of Gloucester these carry us Back first to the reign of Edward Vul and then to the regime of a a bloody Mary a a which Imine Diatel followed. Within a Short distance of the Cathedral toward the South and. Within enclosed ground is the spot where Bishop Hooper one of King Edward s Bishops a Man preeminently holy and conscientious was 1 y the instigation of Many a cruel agents Bis lops Bonner and Gardiner Burnt to ashes. A Monument similar. In. Architecture but a not so lofty a a now rising his memory oif the spot where he suffered. Very affecting is it i can assure you and spirit stirring moreover in that it brings up fresh and vivid it before a the minds Eye the great witnesses of the reformation Era to stand., close to a the.

A a for As to the Bishops notwithstanding a says Foxe a a that godly reformation Quot of religion that began in the our Cosof England they used to Wear such garments and apparel As the Romish Bishops were wont to do first a Clymere and under that a White rocket then a mathematical Cap with four angles dividing the whole world into four parts a these trifles tending More to superstition than otherwise Hooper comb old never abide. So As in no Wise could he be persuaded to Wear them. For this cause he made supplication to the King desiring that he 1 would either discharge Himiob Rie or else to dispense with him for ,lorders.�?� the King and one of his Nobles were favourable to Eis wishes but opposing the at length agreed,.sometimes Tomp bar in the objectionable a Siliment not without great reluctance. As a Bishop and pastor Hooper was distinguished by extra Ordina a a he mighty Dili gence and Fidelity. 7�?o n father in his household no gardener1 in Dis Garden nor Husbandman in his Vineyard was Orebor better occupied than he going about in his towns and villages team King and preach ing to the people besides this he ruled Well his own House pm As to Benefi Cence to the poor he spa and a table for them every Day in hips lace examining.

Spent in Christian Hospi laity 1 and a for two years and More so Longis the state of religion in King Edwards time safely flourished did he exercise the office of a most i careful and Vig Larik but soon after Mary a accession a religion being subverted and changed this Good Bishop was summoned to Jon do by. His deadly enemies five Bishops some of them apostates from protestantism to Advance themselves and please the Queen first he was examined concerning the celibacy of the clergy and was asked whether he was married. . Was a a yes icy lord and will not be unmarried till death me and then he showed that by the old canons marriage was not re fused its the priests. And questioned As to the Corporal presence he gave As his authority god s word a a whom the heavens must hold till the latter Day a and therefore he was declared worthy of deprivation and carried to the Fleet prison where amid neglect cold Damp and exposure his health suffered fearfully his jailor and his wife. Treating. Atm with Savage i cruelty at. Last after repeated interviews and urgent appeals to him to recant he was. Condemned to die. And Are As j stand outside the old Gateway leading from the Cathedral i lookup and see the very same windows of the chamber Over the College Gate from which the priests looking out feasted their eyes on Hooper a lingering consumed. The temptations held our by a Box previously brought and Laid before him with a Pardon irom the Queen if he would recant he spurned for at the sight of it he cried a a if you love my soul away with and so having been it a a a three quarters of an hour or More in the fire even As a Lamb bearing the extremity thereof neither moving forwards backwards nor to any it Side he died As quietly As a child i a his bed and, reign eth As a blessed Martyr in the Joys of heaven prepared for the1 Faith a Ful in Christ before the foundations of a the Are bound to Praise god Hooper in vanquished by Rome s cruel ties confessing Christ in his last Momenta Dies whilst flames his body rank his soul doth Fly. A inflamed with it was pleasing to find that in Gloucester the evangelical clergy Are Strong in numbers and that the great truths for which Hooper contended Are still faithfully preached there. This town is also noted As being first of All the Birthplace of George Whitfield whose ashes repose in american soil and secondly still standing and ancient a a crypt Church a in which he preached a his famous first Sermon of which . Complained to the Bishop who Only hoped that the a a madness would last and infect5 others 1 that Young Whitfield the curate had a a driven fifteen people i was. For half an. Hour in the old Belli inn in which that child first Drew breath who As a Man and a minister of Christ preached with such Seraphic ardor and with such marvellous Success and Power. It is not a common Public House it is. A Large and commodious building with Yard and stables in the rear and still the resort of respectable persons of quiet habits travellers and others. The room Sih which Whitfield saw the Light is a Small apartment at the top of the House. The Cathedral of. Salisbury., in Wiltshire is one of the noblest structures in the kingdom. The. Town was. Originally called new Sarum for thither from the Hill of old Sarumi about a mile Distant and a fortified place in the Olden time was the seat-ofuep�8copal� Power removed. There . Begun a in 1219, a new wooden Chapel to the Virgin a year after the foundation of the Cathedral was Laid. It was completed in thirty eight years at an expense of nearly �27 000, and was solemnly dedicated by Boniface archbishop of Canterbury. The Tower and spire were afterwards added. It is,. Pile both without and within distinguished it is by lightness elegance and grandeur justly proportioned a parts and a i armonious whole. From East to West its dimensions Are 473 feet and from North to South 229 feet seven inches a while from the intersection Quot of the a grand Cross to use the words of Cano no Bowles whose former House you Serin the Cloisters outside the Gate Springs. A a the lessening Shaft of the , the height of 400. Feet. Y,.i was. Present on the. Afternoon of Good Friday in the choir of this Cathedral and heard a portion of a very serious discourse on the love of god in Christ from the sub Dean but the Bishop and clergy of Salisbury Are All High Church in their views Esch we the Bible. Society and All association with dissenters look at every thing religious not from the stand Point of justification by Faith and regeneration by the spirit through the word but from the a Point of View. It is so a Jar. Hamilton the a present Bishop of the same who is prosecuting for heresy one a a a a country clergy or. Williams of by cad a Balkh heresy As taught in the Dar ing i rationalistic and Well known article written Byj him in a a essays and it was so also with the previous Bishop or. Dennison brother to the Hon. Evelyne. Den in son their Esen t s peaker of the House of commons yet in this Cathedral within the. Last ten years the purest gospel truth has been preached first by Bickersteth who was a Canon of Salisbury Cathedral before he be came Bishop of Tipon and next by Canon Waldegrave now Bishop of Dup Ham. Both these men Are calvinists of the reformation stamp and their preaching revived As it were in that venerable pile the voices which once filled it with a heavens own message of mercy Tofal 1 Enand Guil Tyman from Bishop Jewell in the glorious age of thei reformation. I shall conclude a this somewhat lengthened but i Trust not tedious notice of. Cathedrals and churches lately visited by a re Ference first to Sherborne m Dorsetshire and secondly to Wilton Parish Church near Salisbury. As to Sheri Pine the town is beautifully situated and is Rich in historic memories especially As to sir Walter Raleigh who in the Days of his Prosperity had a Noble Castle Here and near Ili the Ivy mantled ruins of what was once a fortress andean. Abbey it in. It one. Bat i refer specially to the Church at sherome which was originally a Bishops see. Like Many other Fine churches of ancient Structure it had neglected and defaced moreover by Whitewash thereby Ca Singi the old Stone of the wails and Noble pillars to look vulgar and vile. Now the whole. Is renovated and restored and the Ideal of a. Mediaeval Structure both As to vastness and Beauty is before you. The a ate Earl of Bristol As a local proprietor with his Meph Ewt and present successor on the estate or. Digby contributed �15,00.0 to the restoration., the melancholy fact however remains that whereas the former vicar whose incumbency lasted for fifty years a was a thorough evangelical flow there is one a who with his curates seeks to turn the place into something almost As much the scene of proud priest ism As is the Parish Church of Frome itself. Such is the working of patronage in the Church of England the Crown thac is the prime minister of the Day has the presentation and patronage of the living of shr Brue. A Latte years inclined to the a High and dry school although nominally an elder of the presbyterian Quot a scottish establishment a bestowed this living on i one who despises the e preaching of the word As compared with ritual Nusic pomp. Sacrament Are an ism and the. Keeping of fasts and festivals. This i Learned from the Verger a respectable and elderly Man who when he a found in what Channel the stranger visitors sympathies ran in Bosomed himself a probably for. The first time for years revealing what was in his heart. How lie cherished the memory of the dead vicar How feelingly a be said a a i never a could1 understand How men will think off adding any thing to the finished work of Jesus Christ a How recalling the great changes of doctrine and practice introduced by the present Noum by it with an emphasis most significant he spoke words like these a a a in wanted to i stood and so l got Luther a works land read seven volumes and also the works of the Swiss reformer Zwingle and read them All a Here one found a brother in Christ and to both parties the interview was pleasing to him Relief Tox. A burdened mind and a glad a or prise to myself. Wilton within three Miles of Salisbury is in Many respects the Jost Beautiful and unique Church in England. It was built Herbert lord Herbert a late minister at War and the a a a soldiers Hawas the1 Consin of the Earl of Pembroke sir al ving whom i he. Would have inherited both the estates. I have described the Man in his personal and Public character. A nobler specimen of a statesman orator and philanthropist genial and Good has rarely walked the Earth he. Was brought up among., the. High Church people but had none of their bigotry was Liberal in politics and truly i believe feared god and made. The perfect one once a incarnate his exemplary he fell in the prime of life a sacrifice to overwork a in connexion with his off iop and especially in promoting sanitary and other reforms in the British army. A monumental statue is about to be erected in ,.the Salisbury to his Unemori at Wilton he raised a Church in. The byzantine style of architecture the pulpit of the finest marbles and precious inlaid stones brought from almost every country. The pulpit is composed of cat a Stone,.and supported by numerous Marble pillars with carved Alabaster capitals. Its circumference is divided into eight compartments five of which Are inlaid with panels of Vari gated marbles of surpassing beat qty Sepal rated from each other by four a twisted columns glittering. Witha Cienfu mosaic., Pijie three filled Frith the a instruments of the passion of Christ All out out amp of Caen Stone. From that pulpit on Good a Friday morning i heard Good and simple Sermon on Christ bearing his Cross toward Calvary and its lessons. In this Church also i heard the most impassioned Given to the prayers of the Liturgy.

Silent stroll through the building and the grounds that Are still redolent of the memories of the happiest Days in All on student life. We found the same full blossomed Maples standing before our room which in those Days we christened a a the chamber of peace a we found the dreams of our boyhood still floating among the branches.
