Much , interest exists among the con.
gregatioussof the Methodist ; Episcopal
Church in this city and Allegheny and
immediate cinitY, at this pericid ot'the
Conference year, to promote the
sionary cause. All the systematic efforts
to raise funds during the year. through
,the congregations and •Sunday Schools
are brought to a grand climax just be
fore the sitting of Conference. Several
of the leading churehes of this denomina
tion. have already , held antversary,meet
ings and large smile have eon reported.
Yesterday Was.wholly, evoted by the
old-time honored Liberty rreet Church
to missionary purposes. , The ,services
were opened at the usual morning hour,
with a ssrmon by the pastor, Rev.W.H.
Locke, A. M., who discussed for a, good
part of an hour the snceees of the Gos
pel, from the following text, fdund in
the 72d psalm, 16th verse: 'There shall
be a handful of corn in the earth 'Upon
the top of the mountains; the fruit there?
of , shag shake like Lebanon.", The rev.,
erendgentleuaan commenced by remark
lug that they, did not . need to be re--
minded that the fulfillment of prophecy
hi received lui,oce of.the strong and en
during pillars on which the Church has
alatitys beer: content to-rest the inspira
tion of the Bible, and the divine charac.
ter of, ita teachings. }le. argued that
he did not.,mean-by prophesy . those
happy guesses of the future, which are
often made by wise and discerning men,
who have studientily observed the course
of human affairs; nor yet such equivocal
predictions as can be made to suit the
event after it has transpired. There are
no such prophecies as these recorded in
the Bible; nor is this thectuaracter of those
predictions upon which we depend to ad.
thepticate.our noly religion. But, when
events are foretold hundreds. and thon•
sands of years , before they come to pass,
and are portrayed with a minuteness of
detail that could not be more par
tietilitr if the prophet hid been Ma
eye-witness of the --scene he records,
then we must pelieve that some
other hand than that . of the hum'an has
drawn aside the veil of intervening cen-,
turies, and brought to light things as yet
hidden in the b3BOlll of the future. Such
a prophecy he thought as this is contained
in the text. Reference fa then made to
the prophetic vision of King David, and
of the glory that should arise in future
ages to the spiritual kingdom, small at
first, but grand and triumphant hi after
time. So small did it seem to the pro
phet King, that he compares it toe hand
ful of corn. So great did the opposition
appear, that it was like `+ planting
that corn on the ,bbsak mountain i top.
And* yet - .se abundant was-the har
vest, that the . rustling of,'its fall
sera sounded like the shaking of the
goodly cedars of Lebanon. With this
brief reference to the., introductory re
mark, we can only give the points of the
discourse, namely: 1. The - small begin
nings of the kingdom of Christ. - 2. The
opposition arrayed against it, and 3. The
promised final success. - The 'discourie
was carefully prepared, well delivered,
and made a fine impression, and its ap
..prosiriatentisi was equal= to its merits.
It would read rell in print, and deserves
to be in type. Attheelosebf - theitertnon

The Secretary read the following com
munication from Joseph S. Kirk:
Mrs. McKee, President of the Allegheny
County Monunsentai .40.tociation:
By request, I have prepared, and beg
leave to submit a modified design for a
Soldiers' Monument, within reach of the
funds of your Association, together with
a description of the same.
In designing I have been governed by
the following suggestions: As the Mon
ument is to perpettutte the memory of
Allegheny County's fallen, an authentic
record of such general and local matters
that figured prominently in the late con
flict should he permanent that genera
tions to come may be amply enriched by
the memory.
History is too general in' its character
to distinguish any one class of its conn
try:s defenders from others, who shared
similar trials, endured similar sufferings
in vindication of sacred principles.
This is left to those communities whose
sympathiesi mingle with theirs—is left
with us;
For.this reason, the names of battles
should be conspicuous, as they in time
will be confused in the roll-call of vic
tory, without bestowing that share Of
honor to whom honor in part is due.
Equally essential from the constant
change in costumes, is a correct repre
sents:ion in fall 'uniform of the different
branches of the service.
Tne unparalleled - achleveruenta of 'the
Christian and Sanitary Commissions,
whose untiring efforts in the'can of hti
manity and equal justice deserves more
than passing notice, and as Freedom tri
umphed, the Goddess of Liberty .is
deemed approslate, and should occupy
a prominent paition.
pasquipTios OF DESIGN.
Five parallel courses compose a base
on which rests an'octattonal pedestal sup s
porting a corresponding, die, from whose
centre rises a colossal column. ,
Each alternate side has a seitilkictago

raised scroll tablets, compbie in part, the
lower portion et the mbuument. •
In the recessalt are life-sized represen
tatives in full tilitform,"of the different
branches of the service—infantry, cav
alry, artillery and navy. Names of bat
tles occupy the raised tablets, while
wreaths and shields, indicative of tri
umph, are between the victors and the
The cap Is formed by a series of semi
circular convex carved, extending suffi
ciently beyond the pedestal to protect the
statuary and raised work below. On the
keystone of the arches appear, in full
relief, badges of the different corps. The

On each alternate side of tho die above,
