REV DAVID M 0 KIN NEE, D. D —Dear
Brusher:--" In the midst of deserved wrath,
God has remembered us in mercy." But a
few months ago, the Presbyterian church of
this place was all but deserted by its friends.
As a last resort, with scarce a probability of
success, they extended a unan,meus call to
the Rev. J S. Grimes, of Dayton, Ohio, who,
we believe, was sent of God, as a chosen in•
stromentality, through whom he has been
phased to show forth the exceeding riches
of his manifold grace, to this people. On the
flirt Sibbath of February, when he entered
upon his pastoral duties in this church, the
Angel of the Covenant began to trouble the
tors In connexion with the elders and
myself, be began the werk of family visite
tine, to ascertain the special condition and
immediate wants of the people. A series of
meetings were then commenced, and kept
up every evening of the week, for four
weeks, when the pastor was obliged to close
the services, to attend the meeting of Presby
tery. The attendance and interest increased
until the close, and deep solemnity marked
every service The order of exercises ob
served was, first, a plain doctrinal discourse,
made praotioal and pungent in its applioa•
tinn Second, a prayer-meeting, interspersed
with short exhortations, in which br.ither
Lane and myself participated with the pas
tor And third, an inquiry meeting for the
anxii:us, at which the people of God re
mained. These services were conducted
without any of that noise and animal excite
moot oftentimes connected with revivals of
religion Brother Grimes preached the
blessed Gospel of Christ in all its simplicity,
pungency, ard poweri laboring faithlully,
by day and by night, in exhorting and en
treating sinners to flee from the wrath to
come ; and his labors have been owned and
abundantly blessed of (god. More than a
hundred have been awakened, and deeply
exercised in spirit. Many, hitherto careless
and unconctrued, were brought to cry to
God for mercy This work of God, seem
ingly, began with the teachers of the Bab.
bath Schi,ol, when the pungent appeal of
the pastor came home to each one, " Have
you personally addressed each member of
your class and importunately urged them to
give their hearts to God ?" At the close of
the service, 4 , ne of the teachers addressed
the pastor, saying, "O, sir, hew can I ever
enter this school again to teach others, until
my own heart is changed ? 0, I cannot do
it, for I feel, as you. say, it will be only
heaping coals of fire on their heads and

Pastoral. Relation Dissolved.
At a congregational meeting of the Pres
byterian church of Little Valley, held on
12th day of April, 1858, in 'View of the pas
tor's removal (liev Thomas P Speers,)
from their midst, the following resolutions
were most cordially adopted, viz.:
Resolved, That it is with much regret we
view his decision of disaulving the pastoral
connexion in this congregation, yet, though
painful to us, we will not throw any obstacle
in his way. but acquiesce in his desire.
Resolved, That we are decidedly con
vinoed, during his stay of more than three
years amung.us, he has discharged hie p ts
torsi duties with much accepiaoce, both in
his Sabbath exhibitions of Divine truth, and
the Wednesday evening lecture, at prayer.
I Resolved, That we deem it due thus pub
lioly to testify to his fervent zeal and untir•
ing energy during the past Winter, at a
time when there were visible displays of
God's presence in our series of wettings.
Then his labors were signally blessed to the
conversion of many BOWS to God, and the
graces of some were deepened and revived.
Resolved That his social intercourse was
profitable and agreeable, and his bearing,
publicly and privately, was kind, dignified,
and altogether becoming the ministry of
Jesus Christ. We would therefore tender
our warmest` attachment to him, and our
fervent prayers shall be for his present and
eternal welfare, and that God would open a
wide field of usefulness for him wherever
his providence may direct, and that he may
be long spared as a watchman of Zion, to
sound the Gospel trumpet, that sinners may

for some time that a number of persons were en

But to discover them, and at the same time se

been very difficult. In former dines, several in

edly guilty of selling lAttery tickets, but before
the time of trial, the witnesses managed to get out
of the way, or the recognizances were forfeited.
However, our energetic Mayor had been for some

separated his police into several divisions,' he
made a descent on several of the houses sus
