It was salvation from the servitude of sin and holiness As its fruits. There have been up to this time a number of conversions and the interest and Power was growing. The attendance up to Friday night was Good and the prospects flattering. T. Loveland Camp meeting. Of thursday the 9th inst., at eleven a. M., Rev. C. W. Ketcham preached the opening Sermon at the Loveland Camp meeting. This meeting was preceded by the sunday school Encampment and As the Novelty of Camp life was somewhat worn off by that meeting the attendance at this meeting has perhaps been decreased yet there Are a goodly number of families tenting on the grounds. And the daily attendance thus far has been fair but not As great As might have been. Rev. C. W. Ketcham presiding elder of the West Cincinnati District has the principal management of the meeting and has been fortunate in having a Good number of the ministerial Brethren of the City and Vicinity to assist him. The plan is to have three sermons each Day one at eleven a. M., and at three and eight p. Besides these there Are prayer and. Social meetings interspersed affording ample Opportunity to All to enjoy the religious As Well As social advantages. The German department under the management of Rev. Jacob Rothweiler is having the same order of exercises As the above and a fair number of preachers Are present to carry on the work.

Rev. L. F. Van Cleve at three p. And Rev. F. S. Cowden at eight p. We quote the Cincinnati Gazette s account of the sunday morning and afternoon meetings a fall the meetings of the Day on both the English and German grounds were deeply interesting and spirited. At eight o clock a. A love feast was held in the auditorium at which the experiences told were remarkably Clear. One aged Saint testified that he was converted to god seventy years ago and wholly sanctified a few years after and he had been kept by the Power of god All these years. This meeting was followed by a Praise meeting. The 10 of clock Sermon on the English ground was preached by Rev. Or. Chadwick of Louisville by. It was a Clear exposition and pointed application of the gospel. The afternoon was Well filled up. At 1 o clock a children s meeting was held. At two of clock Rev. A. B. Leonard preached from rom. Xii 1, 2. The necessity of full consecration of the heart to god was his theme. The Sermon was listened to with great interest and elicited any number of amens. A yes a a said the speaker a it is eat to to say amen but will you do it a a after the Sermon seekers of heart purity were invited to the altar to which several responded. By request the congregation divided up and prayer meetings were held in three of the Church tents and at the altar of the auditorium. At five of clock d. H. Moore president of Wesleyan female College preached. On the German ground Rev. H. G. Lich preached at 10 of clock on the necessity of dwelling in god. The effect of this very effective Sermon was somewhat destroyed by the very prosy operation of raising a collection to pay off a balance of debt on the German Chapel and for some necessary additions made this year. The raising of the Money was very necessary but it did seem a pity that it should follow immediately after so Good a Sermon and yet perhaps a poorer Sermon would have had less effect upon the pockets of the people. At two of clock Rev. Or. Liebhart editor of Hans and Herd preached from John Xii 24.�?� tuesday was announced As Temperance Day with or. Walden or. Bryant of Maine and others As speakers. Wednesday is devoted to the woman a foreign missionary society. The attendance up to the hour of going to press has not been very Large except on Sabbath. The meetings will continue until saturday next with it is hoped increasing numbers and Power. Lakeside Camp meeting. This meeting opened on wednesday evening August 8th. It is estimated that there were near fifteen Hundred persons on the ground at the first service. Over a dozen new cottages have been built since the close of the Encampment there was such a demand for tents and cottages that the Lakeside company had a Large Force of men erecting Long rows of tents and people would take them before they were finished. A larger number than Ever before Are tenting in Board or Canvas tents. The Success of previous Camp meetings on these grounds and the Beauty of the place with the Clear Waters and pure atmosphere of Lake brie Lead Many to come expecting increased physical and mental vigor and enlarged Joys of the great salvation. An audience of six or seven Hundred gathered on wednesday evening to hear the opening Sermon by or. F. 8. Hoyt editor of the advocate. The Sermon sounded n key note for the Camp meeting of Earnest Mark and deep Esper Tenee. The tent it 1 on. Or. a i a Mhz a a f r of a that in Methle a nays nomm Dpi in a. Kit in be a a it the Kurt Van Cess in religious work. There is no other work or scheme of which this May be said. In All worldly matters we Are liable to fail. This is an age of failures and disappoint ments in worldly matters after the very beet efforts of men. Yet a reasonable Hope of Success is the divine appointment and the great motive to Effort. Failure in worldly affairs is sometimes sent by divine Providence for our Good while we complain and distrust god. The doctor showed How Success must be reached by High aim and vigorous work. Those who have succeeded in any Enterprise have pursued it with a heart of Flint and Eye of fire. He traced the change that comes Over the soul in its transformation from nature to Grace and its Progress to maturity. The Reward of this labor is not outward manifestations or external glories even in heaven As much As Bliss in the soul. The Sermon presented a powerful motive to work and closed with the demand from each who is willing to take the guaranty a your labor is not in vain in the following in a Brief Earnest talk in broken English came Peter a. Mailing d. D., of Hoboken n. J., who was present to labor among the germans. He had found salvation through Jesus in a negro Cabin in the swamps of Louisiana and had found Christ with him in labors As a missionary in Texas and through recent deep troubles. All seemed to feel that it was an auspicious opening of the meeting. The singing is chiefly led by professor r. E. Hudson of Alliance assisted by revs. T. C. Warner and James Barron of North Ohio conference with it. G. Abbott of Cleveland playing the Cornet. The singing Book used is a a Jasper and Gold a by professor of Kane. On thursday or. Daniel Steele of Lynn mass., gave a Bible Reading at ten a. M., on instantaneous the argument was founded on the tense of the verbs in the original tongues of the scriptures the Large portion of those which speak of the act of Sanctification being in the Aorist implying a Complete work distinguishing from those of Active enjoined duties which were in tenses signifying continued action. At two of clock or. Steele preached a Sermon on the theme a How May we distinguish Between the guidance of the holy spirit and the suggestions of our own minds a the text was acts i 12 a and the spirit bade me with them nothing the Sermon made the distinction Clear Between the suggestions and disabused the subject of Many unworthy things often attributed to the influence of the spirit As opening the Bible at random and taking the first text on which the Eye fell As divine direction. The spirit indeed Speaks through the scripture but not in that Lazy Way it responds to Earnest prayerful search. Thursday evening Rev. L. C. Webster of Central Ohio conference preached on the a Law of the services on Friday showed an increasing interest in the meetings. Rev. W. G. Waters of Toledo preached at 10 a. During the Sermon Bishop Ames arrived and made some remarks at the close. Or. Palmer of new York was present and Laboured at the altar with some who were seeking salvation. On saturday morning a testimony meeting was conducted by or. Palmer. At 10.30 Lis hop Ames preached to an audience of near three thousand people. Being feeble physically he sat in his chair while he spoke remarking in reference to it that the Savior sat and taught the people where he had a Mountain for a pulpit and the skies for a sounding Board. The Bishop greatly moved the audience with the discourse As was evinced by the tears and alleluia is. It is certain that he is not losing his mental and spiritual Power. He closed with a Strong plea for Camp meetings in general to counteract the watering places of sin and of Lakeside in particular. Or. Payne spoke at two p. M., on a no room for Christ a and shows How Christ is crowded out of hearts and lives of comrnon-school8 and those of higher Grade too often out of families and sometimes from the pulpit while his place and doctrine Are filled with some production of the fancy or essay on science literature or morality while the soul is left to die. The Sermon produced a decided impression. Meetings for various classes four or five at the same time and cottage prayer meetings occupy nearly All intervening time Between other services so that there is almost a continuous Stream of prayers to heaven from Lakeside.
