AI MOSTACAI AMITV.—On Saturday evening !
j * Mrs. D.L F. CLAIIK, residing near this ;
I village," was stepping into the hull with a large ker
osene lamp in her hand, the lamp exploded with a
loud noise, breaking it into a thousand pieces, scat
tering tin oil and fragments of glass in all direct
ions. Some pieces of the I.imp M,. r ,. driven into
the casings and some thrown a distance of nearlv
; twenty feet. This explosion occurred without the
gas igniting, and can l>e accounted for onlv on the
supposition that the wick filled the tube si. tightly
j "n't the gas, which was formed above the oil, eoulil ;
not escape, and its pressure burst the lamp with- !
out the gas taking fire.— Waverly Advocate.
4@r*Tiu! following pertinent inquiries we
1 find in the Advcrtisrr. Though intend. .1 for
1 that place, they are equally applicable to this lali
| tudo :
i "If seven strong churches can meet in perfect
union, and profit by prayer or preaching three
! weeks at a time, in Elmira, —why cannot two or
three littlo%-hnrches meet in as perfect union, and
: profit year utter year in those villages who need but j
] one schoolliouse, and ought to have but one meet- !
j ing-house?
" Why V
"And who can tell why everybody sings in a re
vival, and wby the choir does the surging when j
' there's no revival?
"Or why we get 'so tired of those same old !
tunes," usually, anilyit enjoy ' revival melodies,'
j sung twice each evening, every night for three
"Or why people who •don't believe in Mr. HAM
MOND,' and 'can't get any good liom excitements,'
yet suddenly enough, happen to rouse up and de
clare their faith and begin to goto meeting at a re
vival time ?"
day morning last a fire broke out at the comer of 1
Lake and Carrol streets, Elmira, and could not be
subdued till nine stores were burned, involving a
loss of $50,000, about one half of which was cov- 1
ered by insurance. It is thought t. be the work !

It is hardly necessary to say that the numerous ]
details which enter into a work like this cannot be
formally reported. A mere summary is all that I
have attempted to give, with no ripecification of i
the difficulties, prejudices and other opposing in- 5
tluences which, in a greater or less degree, always
accompany any religions, and especially a purely I
missionary enterprise. It will be seen, however,
that the general aspect 11'eitir field is such as to
lead us to expect great things in the abundant
blessing ot God upon our efforts.
One fact is really inarming. Taking the V. K.
Census of 1860 as a basis for calculation, tliere up- (
pears to be not less than eleven thousand of th.
young in our County who are always < tit of the S. j
S. lam confident that more than this number arc J
destitute of any public means of religious institu
tion for more than half oi each year. This fact
points to another which observation proves to be r
true, i lint these children, at horn . receive almost s
no "mature and admonition of the Lord." "Go ®
out into th. highway" of our Bradford mid you r
wi]l not go far before you will find those who know ; v
not tin- name of Christ or that ther.- is such a book s
as th-Bible. Without some religious restraints]!
th. se "little ones'" and others of larger growth will 1
be lead away by Satin "captive at his will.
Christians, ('liil.slin.j.s-. all of every name, come
to the rescue. You are most earnestly entreat til
to unite and cooperate in the combined effort for
the salvation of the young in our midst. The Brail
ford County S. S.. Association is a name that means
work, work li r all, and work unceasing until '
ev. iy child in the county :■! all be , mi :..<-ed ill th.
aving influences . t tie- Sabbath and the Bible.
The object of our Association is to build up not
particular religions s , t. but rather to win the
young for Christ by teaching them the Word of
Life. This then is not <■ .-• appeal, simply, the
M. xter himsi If calls. He bids us work to-day in a ;
part of his vineyard which I all radiant v ith hop j
and promise. Friends, let us give it our ar
dent pray, rs and cheerful cooperation, remember
iug that the word will not be done until we have
sought for the last lost one on our mountain- : the ]
1 c-t lust otic in our valleys ~:ul iiu re be none 1. It
who have not been directed to Ji -us "ivlio take ill
away the sin of the world."
