the foundation of tho church, v i'he appearance
of these eracxs,and the fact that the west side
of the chapel; had settled full nine inches, proba
bly occasined son e misgivings ' fa the. miuds of
the congregation that the building was'not alto
gether safa. j. The immediate cause of the alarm
however; was the falling of the tronr cash tn the
gallery, which instead ef eliding up arid down,
as is nsaal by means of pullies worked eoa a
pivot so as to he shoved out byj means of a stick;
and when it f fell it rebounded severii times,
making a terrible nose like the cracking of mor
tar and frain-Work. A cry? iastandy arose torn
several females" in the gallery that the 'church
was falling, which was re-ccboed by a general
shilk and a roahing for the ifovs. Qne only
