For a Long time i preserved our religions pamphlets and papers hoarding them with jealous care until every Nook and cranny of our Over crowded Little parsonage cried a a hold then i fell upon another plan. Some i carried to Sabbath school and scattered there your paper is Laid aside each monday morning for a poor widow s family in which it is carefully read and highly prize another goes in packages of two or three to a a family in the country. Lately however i made a great and rather miscellaneous gathering and adding to a contribution from a Friend they a were sent to Grafton. The gratitude and a Joy with which they a were received the invalids there,.encourages me to make this Appeal to your readers. Preserve your religious papers and Send them to our soldiers in the Hospital or in the Field. I place a a higher estimate on a religious paper As an instrument of Good in this Case than on1 a tract. Many reject tracts who. Will gladly receive papers that contain As much and As pointed truth.

We left Atlanta on monday 14th inst., on the2� of clock train for st. Louis. At Springfield Illinois several members of the Synod of Hli Nois which was in session at that place met us at the ears and we had some five minutes greeting and Farewell with expressions of Good wishes for our Prosperity and Success. We arrived in Camp at eleven o clock. This whole Encampment is at present under a the command of general Samuel r. Curtis., the Encampment is on the West and and join ining the fair ground and is about three and a half Miles from the Mississippi River at st. Louis and is perhaps not inferior to a any in the United states As a Camp of instruction for infantry and cavalry but Little is done Here in artillery training. But one Cannon is Here Camp Jackson is but a Short distance from this place. I have not yet met with any of the chaplains Here except Bro. Alexander the chaplain of this regiment. Col.

On wednesday evening Bro a. Conducted the prayer meeting. We had a very pleasant time of it the meeting was addressed father Mcchord who is father inlaw to oar chaplain and some three or four others. Many of the officers and soldiers were deeply interested. I heard the remark made one of of or soldiers was the Best meeting that he Ever attended. On thursday night we attended the prayer meeting in the thirty ninth regi Merit called the Yates Phalanx. It was conducted .Captain Slaughter a methodist minister till he was called away some one on business. Of or chaplain conducted it during the remainder of the time. Remarks were made Bro. Alexander and others. After singing two verses of the hymn commencing 0 for a closer walk with god a the thought was presented of a father accompanied his Little child passing through a wilderness j in.

In a former communication i had the pleasure of furnishing particulars on this subject in connexion with the annual meeting of the medical students Christian association. Some of the Foremost London physicians Are eminent for then philanthropy and piety. Thus doctor be incr who is the Queens physician next m Honor and position to sir James Clark devotes a considerable portion of his time to the sick children a Hospital in great Queen Street Bloomsbury and was Mam its founder this institution is an admirable one. And to see the. Happiness and Comfort of the Little invalids and to Mark also the crowd of Little healthy children whom poor mothers going out a in the morning to work Are permitted to leave for the.

The Little ones tumbling on the floor m jubilant gladness and the bigger ones on the rocking chairs m great glee their laughter space sting the old rhyme ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross a All this does the heart Good to see. Morning he is brought up for manslaughter. But the great Benefit of the new. Regime is the necessity of a Superior education. A revival retrospect is. Very Suita ble at a time like this when labourers in gods work Are wont to rest a while in or j Der to gird up their loins to fresh toils and to resuscitate Anuw Ettsal energies for afresh ten . To a is it a is that i can look Back Over the months i ready gone of the present year and then enlarge the retrospect Over the years to the summer of 1858, when Good a tidings of extended Awakening came to us i from the United states animating the Faith Hope and prayer ulness who were cast Down. Next comes up to the View the Ulster Awakening and the a a year of Grace a in the North of Treland with All the quickening impulses flowing from it As. From a mighty heart and causing fresh astonishment and then As one Ope came Back m the autumn of 1859, and As. Fresh and authentic information was sup plied the press prayer was stimulated aggression was a waged on the kingdom of darkness and fresh fruits conversions remarkable for the previous misery and wickedness of the subjects of Mot of them. And for the labourers the raised up for the worst classes from among them selves. Loung men too began to realize. And to extend the Blessing. Ministers preached with anew life the old gospel which was As a fresh Spring to the people of god and to the anxious and thirsty souls there was a work also inaugurated among Young women which mightily grew and increased like other Good things be. Gan at and after the new years Lodi Ana concert for prayer in the second week of 1860.a a a a the work of revival m London has been very quiet. Hence Many professors who never a que know Little or nothing of it but that it has been real. Many pastors ragged school Church and Chapel preach erg teachers of sunday ragged schools masters and matrons of. Male and female refuges together with open air preachers and those who have taken special interest m the services in Halls and theatres can declare with thankfulness and Joy. ,. And did not god raise up -i3no.instr.u-ments and agencies his people to think of and pity new of and Unpi tied ? was it not thus that Brownlow North Captain Trotter and or Blackwood have in two successive years preached at Willis Ance righteousness and judgment to come to the Noli and fashionable. Thus too have not Regenald Radcliffe his influence after Ward radiating Over parisian protest-1 ants As Well As that of Marseilles a adj shul Liam Henry been equipped and see to Forth As the evangelists of the Middle and William Carter and Richard Weaver been called to blow the blast of alarm and with Success m the ears of the j most hardened of the lowest c ass so and a not in vain a so likewise new classes were morally excavated. Thus the Midnight meeting movement the Bible Street Reading move ment the Bible women Mission the cab ens club movement and the present fresh enterprises inaugurated for the. Lon a Don lamplighters and the London. Night a cab men the former numbering two thou Sand men the latter a degraded a lass Many of them old men and one thousand in number All these thing3 indicate the working and spirit taught Wisdom which Are emphatically of god and tokens of his mercy and Grace toward this great and mighty City. Further one Thmas How from London As a Centre influences for Good have radiated not Only Over the scout try but Over the world. Nearly All the movements just indicated find imitation and a Une vying Lomg rivalry elsewhere. Bible women Are thus sought out for watering places and country towns and Are sent up j to London and boarded and lodged for some weeks at Small expense and in Safe quarters to learn lessons from experience i in London districts. And so a la Yaat writes a your Elizabeth tells me that though she Felt vexed i waited so turn the Sun out of its course As to convince him that any thing is wrong which his party advocates. A and he wants every thing done in the Hureh according to Liis Way and he is perfectly sure that his Way is the Way things were dope in the purest and Best times of the reformation Bat lie knows nothing about the missions of the Church. He does where she has her a missions established among the Heathen. He could pot Tell you whether they have done any Good. He could not Tell you whether a descendant of Abraham has been converted these fifty years. He knows nothing about How other congregations in his Church Are getting along. So when one member rejoices with it and when another member suffers he cannot suffer with it. He casts a dime into the hat once or a year and when collections Are taken up and then wonders what the Church does with so much in Tel Gencer. A a dressmaker Cut Home garments m the sideways crowded with men and women i and accommodating folds of the j from almost every nation m the world each so likewise other physicians wait daily at appointed hospitals without fee. On those who suffer from Ophthalmia. From cancer and from club foot and other deformities. Many medical men also Are bed Side preachers to the is k and dying and have souls for their hire. Some of them. Are ready to speak publicly. As for example Winslow who addresses assemblies of working men bringing to them the living gospel with living earnestness and Power. Medical education is receiving a great impetus. Parliament has come to the Jelp of the profession m its desire to put Down quackery and to a prevent murder being done ignorant pretenders who write a a Over their doors and who Are vile empiric not that the act of parliament is As definite As it ought to be if a bad Man Only to have a medi Oal degree from a certain University or a col lege he Nyiry a till i 1 on until a some Fine Long for her services she would not have been without that week the Grosvenor Square District for any thing she Learnt there and found so to her own soul. She arrived among us,.�as you know at the end of january and began Hei work with an Energy of purpose that augured Well for her Success. And Success i she has had far beyond her expectations a a wider revival View one must take at such a time As this. Aud thus Dublin and. Kingstown with Many towns in the South of Ireland and its Midland counties Scot. Land islands of the West,.and. With Glasgow Edinburgh Perth Aberdeen. Montrose Dumfries Annan and other i scenes marvellous blessings present. Them. Selves and shall we forget that Sweden has had showers that religious life is deepening in Germany and that in the French protestant. Established Church As Well As in. The National. Church of Switzerland its pulsations Fuller and More frequent Are Felt ? Europe has begun to breathe even its extremities so cold before become warm. What was the Universal conference at Geneva whose memories Aie still so fragrant to myself but the Token of Mere ased Ife in Europe and the. World to that conference Russia contributed its representatives and there on the closing Day when a United meeting was held for prayer and when two places were required on each Side of Tolje Rhine to. Accommodate the worshippers a gentleman from Russia Rose up and pleaded earnestly for prayer on behalf of russian its Czar its Nobles and its people. That Appeal will surely be responded to the people of the United states who know Well the kindly feelings of Alexander ii. I toward them. The total number of members who re a i Cei Ved and presented tickets of admission at Geneva was l,88t>. Besides these Many persons attended without cards of Entrance. Thus As to numbers the conference was a great Success and As to spiritual issues i Hope and believe they will be Felt for years to come. Next year a similar conference will be gathered in London. The great exhibition building will then be the Tesoric of All nations. Ere May Day comes with its opening ceremonies May a a Meek eyed peace a return to your country Homes churches and hearths with Unity and brotherhood reestablished with the oppressed set free in the spirit of that Noble legislative actor i Pennsyl Vanias lately printed in your columns Quot with a a the peaceable fruits of righteousness to a nation chastened and so purified and made truly and conference find among it m Osic.

He often declared his views of religion and duty at the. Head of his regiment and urged his captains and their subaltern to take the greatest care that they did. Not give the Sanction of their example to that which their office they were obliged to punish m others. He too despised danger. He was a Patriot of the deepest Devotion.
