in substance as follows:
Air, I'lcsideiit, Ladles and Gentlemen: Wc
hae been called together for the purpose of see
ing: the piest-ntatlou of a comp.uss and its equip
ments, by the MOiklngmen of Arehbild, a.s a mark
of their le-peel and esteem for their late minlnif
Mutineer, William law, and a pioud nnd Ioiir
I" he lememhcicd occasion If. must be to him.
It seldom falls to the lot of a man of his jears
In mclir. the universal icspect nnd esteem of his
co-lahoieis ( gicat proportion of whom in jenis
an- his si-niois), and not only of those who ale
his subordinates, but. also nf his employers. It
is i niie thing, indeed, tint a pel son in such i
n sponsible situation cm be jut to einploj-cis
ami einphued, and jet be ic-pected and esteemed
by bolh parties. Hut such a man is William
Law, and the f itirens of Archbald haic united
as one mini to demonstrate the fact, ley the
piest-ntation of this bi-autltiil set of instiuments
as a inemenlo of times pat, and as a token of
the appreciation of the w-orkiiiRinen of Aiclili.il!
of thai whlili is noble, just and good in a super
inteudcntj and whenever William Law casts his
ejes upon this compiss it must be with a urate
fill heat I and thinks to (tod that lie has been

As lo nij peional intereour-p with Hip ip
cipicnt ot this testimonial, it has been puielj
onp of fiiiiid-hip, and it is gtatitying lo me to
lip able to add my tc-timony to his merits, as I
hue alwaj i found him matilj-, uptight and lion
oiiblo, and his intellectual attainments fur supu
ior to what his modestj- and uiiiSMiming de
meanor leads people to brliiwe.
One wonl as to the donois: I have many warm
and peisunal friends in Aichbald, and nij" intci-COUI--C
with them his been oT the mo-t pleasing
kind. I li.no Lisleil of their friend-hip and bos
pitillty on a pieiious opeasion, and I can .is-tire
All-. law that this dpinnnshalion of the good
feeling toward him of his fiiends in Aichbald
is tint inciclj' a spontaneous burst of enthusiasm
that will pass aaj" with the nest wind into the
sea ol oblhion, but that it Ins oiiginalcd in the
depths of the attainment he has eieated in Iheli
bosoms, and that it is ehvp, heartfelt and la-ting.
And allow me to say for the cili?ens of
C.iibondale thai thej- respect Mr. law as a citben

I cannot leave this subject without leieiting

his title was colonel instead of general, a vote
of thanks was given him by the Vuglnia legi

ot Hip legislature nro-c and said: "Colonel Wa-h-ington,
jour modest)- surpasses even j-our lu.iv-oij-."
Modesty ever accompanies due worth;
and we all know- that it crowns the virtues
which adorn our friend, Law, We often hear
it said that love is better than law. But in oui
litem! we have both love and law combined a
veiy happy (ombiualion, indeed.
THE HEVVENLY COMPAQ.
As I look on this beautiful compa-s, elevated
on ils stand bcfoic the pulpit, I am lemindcd
ot that Heavenly Compass reposing on the sailed
desk itself thatsuiedirector which God lias given
Us by vvliii h to steer our course safelj' over life's
tempestuous ocean to the haven nf eternal icst.
Our fiiend came from a land wheie Hie Heav
enly Guide is loved as ardently and read as dill
gcutly, perhaps, as in any pait of the world;
wheie the masses of the people take II under
their anus to chinch eveiy Sabbath anil c.ne
fnlly seaich it to see whether the minister
pi caches according to it or not. Tlii- I know
was fot maiiv- generations Hip piaetice theic, ami
I believe is still expensively kept up. To the
Bible and the Sabbath Scotland owps nun h of
the eneigy and intelligence and inoi.il wottli
lhat rhajae teiles so laige a portion of its titi
ens ,st home and evcij-vvheie else. Piiiallj, I am
u-minded by this pieseiilation ol tlnl day of
final ilciMou and awaid that wc niii-l all inert.
Miy we then all wreive iiom a hlghir thin hit
mill atitboilly the welcome appinval: "Well
done, thou good and laithful seivant."
The meeting was also addica-eil by Messrs.
