spirit about its ultimate success. There is a remnant according to the election of grace, and out of these there shall arise deliverance unto Israel. Such

works as this Handbook will be useful in leading to truthful doctrine those who else might have had no definite views.

Notes.

THANKS to the hearty co-operation of friends at home and abroad, the Bazaar for the Orphanage was a success beyond our hopes. The money needed for the Preparatory School Room is raised, there being £1,200 as the gross result of the Bazaar. The Lord be praised for the hearty manner in which all co-operated; whether donors, keepers of stalls, or pur. chasers,—all were animated by an earnest spirit and carried the thing through. We were just able to speak for few a minutes at the opening of the Bazaar, and were too ill to be again present; but the witness of all was that if any one saw aught of wrong in what was done, it must have been the the reflection of his own perverse imagination.

Slowlyhas the Editor recovered strength, but he is now convalescent, and hopes to attend to the duties which the Tabernacle imposes upon him. More, he would be insane to attempt.

Of the first number of the “Interpreter” the publishers have sold five thousand; the second number can now be had. Many persons have assured us that it is what they have long wanted. We hope they will introduce it to their friends. Those friends who wish it to be issued fortnightly are respectfully reminded that we could not write it so quickly. They must be content for a while to use the “ Interpreter"

once a day. Mr. W.C. Jones, late of Newton Abbot, has become the Secretary of the Colportage Association, with a view to the extension of that work. Should he call upon any of our friends we hereby certify him as the authorised officer of the Society, and hope that he will have a cordial reception.

The buildings required by our College are our next care. We are cramped in our work for want of them. We hope soon to have the ground, and then we shall need £5,000 to complete our plans. To train evangelists and help the Lord's servants to understand the Scriptures, and to preach the gospel, is a work which is of infinite importance; and we do not believe that the Lord will suffer it to be in want. Our College has always had its bread and water supplied it, and now its God will surely find it house-room,

Our friend, Mr. Tydeman, has become pastor of the church in Plymouth, over which Dr. Stock formerly presided.

Mr. Tarn, of our College, has an evident blessing resting upon his work at Park Road, Peckham, where he is now the pastor.

Among other works of usefulness connected with the Tabernacle is a service for the Blind. Mr. James Hampton, a working man, has carried this on for some time in his own house, but now a larger room is taken in Walnut-tree Place, Kennington Road. To induce the poor blind to attend, a few pence are allowed to their guides, and both guides and blind people receive a tea. Thus about forty are got together of poor indigent persons, and then brethren from the Tabernacle address them. The numbers might be increased indefinitely if we could afford it. Any money sent to us for this object we will gladly receive. When the work is more fully organised we will notice it at greater length,

and report progress. Mr. Wilkins, late of Leighton Buzzard, has removed to Cheltenham.

Mr. S. Pilling, late student with us, has been recognised as the the pastor of the church at Potter's Bar, Herts.

Mr. Spufford has accepted an invitation to the pastorate of the church at Bovingdon, Herts. Mr. C. Evans has settled at Rickmansworth, and Mr. Williamson at Waltham Abbey. Mr. H. C. Field has become pastor at Burslem and Newcastle, North Staffordshire, and Mr. Gillespie, at Barking Road.

We thank the friends at Redruth for remembering our work. We trust that our friend, Mr. Edwards, who has just settled among them, may enjoy much prosperity.

Mr. Fulton is preaching the word in St. Andrew's, N. B.

Mr. W. Ward Willis, of our College, has accepted a call to the Eleventh Church, Philadelphia.

Mr. R. A. Griffin is Pastor of the church in Zanesville, Ohio. Mr. T. Harford is located at Hamilton, Ohio ; and Mr. A. Macfarlane at Wooster, Maine, Ohio. All these are we believe doing well.

P

ERSONS who need rest from labour, either mental or physical,

can always secure a profitable change by arranging for a temporary sojourn in

" Edina, Scotia's darling seat." The pride of Scotland, Edinburgh, will continue to maintain her prestige while travellers are found who appreciate cultured society, historical relics, and a highly romantic natural situation. The city possesses every gratification to allure and detain educated visitors. Nature enters into an alliance with literature, scierce, and art, to render the city favoured and famous.

Observant English visitors who walk out into Edinburgh for the first time, notice what a different aspect the town presents from some other capitals with which they are familiar. There is a classical and refined look about the New Town with its gardens, Scott's monument, museum, and picture gallery, quite unique and striking, and which can never be seen in great commercial centres. The pedestrians, the young women not excepted, include a large proportion of students, and carry a literary air. Even the shopkeepers look studentish, and in many instances are persons of respectable attainments. Then how thickly strewn are the relics of the past on this famous historical site—from the ancient little chapel, wherein "good Queen Margaret” prayed, on the top of Castlerock, to the now dilapidated pulpit of John Knox, or the murderous Grass Market " Maiden” in the antiquarian museum. Dr. Guthrie
