    toe breionier to attract much attention, and
to call f , rtf , great sympathy. For there are
here nrar'y forty thousand ironieu, who sew
for a living. About thirteen thousand of
these lire shirt makers, eleven thousand
t)ileres.4es and vest•makers, four thousand
four hundred cloak-makers, three thousand
dress makers and milliners; besides those
employed in other branches of needle-work.
It is supposed that only about three thou.
id of the whole number had regular em
ployment during the Winter, and conse
quently many have felt the pinchings of
poverty and want, while to others the temp
tations to vice and crime have been strong.
The introduction of sewing machines has
thrown many out of employment, and although
some other better means of honest livelihood
will soon be presented, the change, at first,
is accompanied by much individual suffer
ing. Every improvement in productive
machinery has, in the end, benefited the'
operative and laborer.
The Sabbath Movement gives promise of
much greater success than many of its friends
expected in the beginning. Every meeting,
on the subject increases in interest, and!
brings out additional advocates. Thelast
meeting was one of great spirit. Pious lay
men are willing to lend their efforts, and
to devote their personal agency to this work.
They are not willing that the clergy should
be left to fight this battle alone any longer.
At this meeting, cinch men as Hiram Ketch
um, E. L. Fanche, Hon. B. F. Butler,
Horace Holden, and Judge Slosson, spoke
in advocacy of a prudent yet deoisive en
forcement of the existing Sabbath laws:
The Hon. F. A. Talmage, Superintendent
of Police, and for many years Reorder of
the City, was present, and gave a most en
()enraging account of his efforts'toward
closing the stores, stopping the racing on
Seventh Avenue, and preventing the sale of
newspapers, on the Lord's day. He has also
said that he had issued an order to arrest
boys who were crying newspapers on Sun
day, but at the suggestion of the Chairman
of the Sabbath Committee, he bad deter
mined to ask the proprietors of the papers
first, to abate the nuisance, and if they
would not stop, he would issue the order at,
'The Religious Revival continues to be the
great and absorbing topic. Even the press
ure of business at the hurried season of 'the,
year, in the great commercial metropolis,
has not yet turned away the minds of men
from the great concerns of their souls. To
enumerate the places open for prayer, the
churches in which great additions have beon
made to the ,membership, and any consid
erable number of incidents, is impossible in
our limited space. Certainly the people of
this city were never before so awakened on
the subject of religion, as now; never be.;
fore were there so many meetings, so, many
sermons, so many prayers. Never before
have the lay members of the church exhib•
ited such activity, or seemed to feel their
responsibility in the same degree. Stran
gers visiting the city attend in large
crowds, and many will carry to their distant
homes hallowed influences. In the mean
time, some of the religious papers are calling
attention to some of the dangers just now in
the way. One is, the great publicity given
to the whole work, and to many of the
details. Now, it is said, and every one of
experience knows its truth, that it is a very
critical point in every revival, just when it
becomes public. Another danger consists
in the liability of inquirers, at a time such
as this, to depend altogether too much cm
the conversation and prayers of oihers, with
out going directly to Christ, and feeling
themselves under personal obligations to
repent. And again the number of conver
sions does not yet bear any thing More
than a small proportion to the whole number
led to tbbughtfulness concerning salvation.
Never was there greater need of faith, pin
dence and perseverance , in this good work,
than now. May the Holy Spirit still come

the purpose of effecting a more thorough

A Convention of ministers and layttim , ,
of the Seceder, Union, and dowicrl,aer
Churches, was held in Dr. Dale's churofi i "
one evening last week, for prayer and con
fe:ence on the present wide.spread revival&
religion. About one thousand persons were
present. Several addresses were made, by
both ministers and laymen, in which the
necessity for an improved state, of religious
feeling and life was strongly pleaded, but at
the Fame time it was contended that' the
meetings in Jayne's Hall must not be made
to take the place of personal and private
devotion and inquiry..

My DP.Att - BROTHER :--Your letter of the
23d of January, came duly to hand. I
should have answered before, but I, was
waiting to see what would be the result of
our meetings. You say, "I find by your
letter to H—, you are engaged in a work
which, of all others, is of the greatest im
portance; and I hope, by this time, you are
enjoying a blessed revival." •
True, the past Winter has been one of al
most constant labor. We have been try
ing to carry out the recommendation of
the Pastoral Letter, issued by. the Pitts
burgh Convention. That letter, (a copy "of
which I enclose,) breathes the very spirit of
that holy Convocation—that blessed revival
prayer-meeting, never to be forgotten.
In less than a week after my return home,
there 'were
.spme tokens of the.
i Lord's pres
ence n my , congregation. The'third Stab
bath ' December, we had a very solemn
and precious communion season, followed by
sereral held in 'different parts
. .of
the Congregation, for epeeial prayer and
;Christian conversation with the members of
the church, which, with the Divine blessing,
'seemed useful in stirring up the minds of
Christiania to-s'elfexamination,.-prayer, and
nersonal effort for the conversion of sinners.
I believe I mentioned, in any letter to
that my Session, , after prayerful deliberation,
entered °lawfully upon the work of family
visiting. We divided ourselves into three
committees, and went, (as recommended,)
two and two, frimi'house to house, through
the whole congregation, , conversing and
praying'with every family. It was 'a labori
oils work, and requiring some self denial at
"the beginning; but, in the end; :proveffm
rich , the members of the Session,
and was, I trust, productive of much good
,to most of the families visited: • '
We held a protracted Meeting of
-five days;
in January, and another .of four days-in
February, in which we received veryucaept
able and valuable assistance from several,
neighboring ministers...We have hid meet -f
ings of different kinds almost daily for three',
menthe, most of whieh have been solemn
and deeply interesting.
As to our "enjoying a blessed revival,":
I'scarcely.know what to tell you. We do
not call it a revival, that is, a general and
powerful revival, such as we greatly needed,
and:such as we witnessed at the East, in our
youth"; yet the Lord has visited us in sreat
mercy, for" which we have nbundatereapow
to be thankful.
The niost'of 'the'inembers of the church
have been,revived; spine 'backsliders have
been `reclaimed,; prayer - meetings been mull
tiplied, beyond what, I have witnessed in
twenty years; many neWlamily altars have
been set up; and the number of those who
lead in prayer, in our , meetings,' has been
more than doubled. Many sinners have
been awakened, and a few, wetrust,• have -
been converted. At one •time, the bird''
`seemed specially present in our meetings,
There was 'manifestly much tender feeling
and deep interest, even among the ' impeni r
i tent; and some of God's people , tried , to
plead in their prayers 'that hlesse& promise,
will pour water upon him that, is thirsty
and floods upon the,dry ground." The Lord
his fulfilled to' us the first party he. hak
poured water upon some. thirsty souls, brit,'
threugh the weakness of our faith, or 'for
ionie other cause, the floods hive, not ,come
down upon the ,dry ground: fear there
has been some mighty obstacle in the way;
some dreadful Aehan in the camp, or in our'
'hearts, that has hindered the L')rd's blessing:
from earning down,upon us sueb eop,ious''
showers as we need. For this we ought to
mourn, and lie low and abased in the',;ilust'
before God. But for the drops of, mercy
which we have received, we desire to thank
and adore our blessed 'Redeemer.' I trust-
the bora has not yet left us; that there are
still -some -inquiring sinners in our Midit,'„
ho will anon be,gathered into the 'fold of
Christ • • .„ ;5

upon us." I ask au interestin'your prayeri

roe tii`expretts my opinion of your School If I emild not
conscientiously express a favorable one, I 'would frankly
tell you so, and'ilacline saying anything about it; for 1 am
chary of compliments, and cannot violate truth in order to
extend them. The man who commando an inferior rcbool,
at which the time of the pupils would he wasted, or spent
to little profit, commits a social wrong ; whilst be who calls
dettrild attention to a meritorious school, cantata a social
, Ism, therefore, free fo say, that with the locality, ap
pointments and arrangements of your Academy, I was well
satisfied. Year location is beautiful, healthful, and relive
leant; your buildings spacioue , comfortable, and. well
adapted; your neighborhood intelligent, moral, and exempt
from temptations for youth. I deemed your aseLstante ea
pable; faithful, and diligent; the recitations I witnessed
were highly creditable. And what Impressed Me as Pe,Ll
- desirable, In a school for young gentlemen. wee the
delightful family amanita/ion, at once cheerful anti orderly,
which seemed to prevail. Any one could eve that the pu
pile jell that they were In a pleammt, Christian noes, where
both their education and their personal comfort were cared
'for, with parental kindness and wisdom. Mrs. Caton has,
in my opinion, rare qualifications lbr the reeponsible posi

Hoping that journey always enjoy the patronage which
such a school ought to command, and that you may be very
successful in training the youths oommitted to your care,
