this iniltation such had been Mrs. Ilantilton's

Mrs. Hamilton had been accustomed all her•

EDITOR: In ' my letter of yesterday,
front - thisTplaWrOftulfiliell Immeirmount or
the Comp,Meeting,. now in progress. ' '
For Many years past, a large number of.
the Itfethodists or Philadelphia, and of the
Eastern shore of Maryland,. ilaYo been in 'the
'titbit, normally, of meeting at a place called
Red L;on. These annual gatherings hove
given the ptace suite an enviable celebrity.
But, for important. reasefils: the parties interr
ested have abandoned the celebrated ground,
of RA Lion, andlixell upon a grove located
nt4way betwebh Dover and Camden. Eigh
teen acres of land have been-purchase!L:With
the intention of making it n first class place
for their annual "Feast of Tabernacles." .
As I approached the Carpp, ‘. around, the
songs of Zion fell sweetlyupon myMar,
ing a class Of feelings in marked contrast With
those willck had pervaded my mind -for -two
I weeks or more.. Alighting from my carriage
on the suburbs of 'the encampment, [ was
struck with the beauty of the scene before me.
_Night having thrbwn her dark mantle over the
forest, the camp-fires wore blazing in different
directions, revealing to my, view a great_mum
ber of canvass -tents, together_ with a variety
of hoard cabfds,,. Upon reaching the inner
circle, I inquired of a friend as•to the number
of tents pitched upon the ground, when to nay
surprise' found it reached over four, hundred.
The tents are
,handsomely arranged in four
circles, with a space.of sii feet between each
circle. The area within the inner 'circle is
large.enough for. the accommodation of sever
al thousand persons,. comfortably seated. At
the lower part Of the encampment, is . the. stand
for the preachers, iihmediateli in the rear of
which at'e • accommodations for the -colored
people, 'many of whom.afiiiitieb.MlVed upon the
ground, Near the encampment are several
large springs,- affording a sutficient_quantity
of water, of good qUality, for the crowd Of.
people -which, daily - throng the consecrated
grove-. ' • • •
During the progress of the meeting, Minis
tershave been in attendance from Philadel
phia, front different points of New Jersey,
from ,Now York, and other sections of the
countit, public services are held, at the stand
regularly four. times a day —prayer 7 tneeting at
8 o'clock, A. M., and preaching at. 10o'clock,
A. M., and-at 3 and 6 o'clock, P. M. . Twice,
pteaehing-took-place-at4m , clook- i n -t he Menll.. -
ing, Rev. Mr. Hersey officiating. Even at this
early hour, the congregations - numbered over
ene-thousamipersons. Throughout the meet
ing, the preaching has been good, in some in - : -
atances-tho •sermons have-been--characterized
i ,
by great eloquence and power. The congre
gations have been seribus and attentive, and
from the large numbers that daily present
ihemselves at the altar for religious instruc
tion, I think nnich good is being aecemplished.
On Tuo'oday evening, quite a sensation was
produced by the arrival of Rev. Mr. Roach,
of Allen Street Cluirch,, Now York City, with
several gentlemen who are attached to what is
known in religious circles in that city, as the
Flying Artillery." This company of chris
tian men have assiduously devoted themselyes
to the work of the Lord, daring the great re
vival-in New York, going about from place to
place, holding prayer and exhortation meet
tings. Their efforts at this Camp Meeting,
have been crowned with great success. They
ging sweetly and exhort powerfully. They
are men of fine personal appearance, good po
sition in society, deep piety, zeal and energy
of character. Yeltcrday, n p . atient:in in
formed me that they were men of wealth and
influence, in the city of New York. and have
given themselves up to the work, of their
Heavenly Master.
• I have never seen so many Ministers at one
Camp Meeting. Up to this time, nindy-four
have been present, and as the tents will not
be struck until to-morrow' morning; others
will doubtless' arrive, swelling the number.
perhaps to ono hundred. At the close of the
sermons, prayer-meetings are held at the
stand, and in theAlifferentlargo_company-tents.
front Philadelphia and other places; and when
they are all, in full blast, the hosts of the
" wicked site, " tremble under the divine and
gracious influence pervading the encampment.
This section of country Is 'proverbial for
hospitality to strangers ; and after a sojourn
of several days among. them,d take great
.in acknowledging thelinslness and
attention received fromthe„preachers and the
people. - •
This morning, at a very early hour, with
out the privilege of
,a parting glance at gone
very estimable friends, I jumped into a stage
coach, an in a few minutes I found myself at
the Depo , comfortably seated in a Railroad
Car, on ny' journey to the beautiful Cumber:-

.BvnoN's FIRST Love.—ln alluding to the
lentil at Brighton, on the ath ultimo, of Mrs.
Mary Duff, widow of Mr. Robert Cockburn,
the Glasgow Herald says : —‘, We believe this
lady,. whose husband' was a brother of the late
Lo'rd Cockburn, was Lord Byron's first love.
The noble poet mentions, in one of his letters,
that when a little boy, residing with his-moth
er in Aberdeen, he and ' Mary Duff" used to
walk together under the charge of their fe
male attendants, and that the feeling he then
cherished towards her wile the first: dawn of
that passion which, in more mature years,
glowed with suffioient intensity. His famous
Mary' Miss Chaworth,to whom he addresae:
that impassioned poem, the Dream,' died
more than twenty years' since. No wonder
Byron, in another poem,, _writes, have a
