teenth chapter of Romans. We
have rarely heard a sermon more
appropriate to the occasion,
The benefits which flow from the
extensive diffusion of the Scrip
tures, and the strong claims which
Bible Societies have for support
on the community, were forcibly
delineated. The style of the
Preacher was nervous and his
language chaste. The collection
amounted to about 3G dollars. '
