Abstract of Fifth Annual Report'of the Church
Extension Committee.
For.the first time since its 'organization
the Committee reports the death of a mem
ber, Joseph Charless; one pi ; they most
cient Christians in the city of St. Louis.
The work entrusted to the Committee
*as during the. last year an .unusually heavy
burden. An unusual number of sanctu
aries spared by the leniency of creditors
for many months, were during that period
pressed to sale, and special efforts were
necessary to save them. Repeated failures
of the crops,And the continued pecuniary
distress of some sections of our country,
compelled many churches engaged,in build
ing to draiv so heavily on the Comm ttee,
that the, applications duly preptred
triear action were for $51,551.91, or more
than $13,000 in excess of any previous
year. , From April Ist, 1859, to April Ist,
1860, one hundred and thirty applications,
call for over $68,000, were put on file.
the applications on file aid un
diaposed of April let,' 1859, two hundred
and thirtpOne applications, calling for
more than $109,000, were before the Com
nilttee in the year, under review. Various
causes reduced the receipts of the first nine
months,nf the fiscal year to $11,501.32, or
$5,716.74 below the same period of the
preceding year, and rendered the position
of the Committee a very painful one, for
many: months, as they were compelled to
cut down, defer and decline an unusual
number of UpPlications. During the last
three, months, however, about $24,000 was
reoeiied, , so that the year closed more pros
-perously.than was anticipated, and shows
an advance in every department. The names six hundred and sev
enteen contributing churches, against five
hundred and sixty-five specified last year,•
And records an increase in receipts of
$6,197.69. While an.unusually large pro
portion of the receipts, were special dona
tions, showing rather what the Church is
doing in this department than the amount
at the dispoeal of the Committee; still,
after these are deducted,, the, sum received,
for general purposes is somewhat larger
than in, any, former year. The number
of Appropriations reported is eighty-five,
against'; eighty-three last yeari and ,the
amount appropriated is $34,573.87, or
$10,605.72 greater than during the pre
viout twelve months: The amount paid
ninety, churched this year, is $31,614.33, or
$11,119.43 greater than the amount, paid
seventy-six, churches last year.
The year, closed with one hundred appli
cations on file and undisposed of, calling for
over $43,000. None of these were in a condi
tion to be acted upon bythe Committee imme
diately, but a large number of them will proba
bly, soon furnish the necessary information.
During the year, five applications, calling
for $6,000; were declined, chiefly for want
of means to respond to them.
The' receipts from April Ist, 1859, to
April Ist, 1860, were $35,440.01, and .the
expenditures $34 2 749.64. The liabilities
of the Committee at the close of the year
exceeded their means on hand, $2,239.90.
The average cost 'of the church edifices
the Committee have helped to build is
$2,095, and the 'average amount of help
they have given is $245.
,Committee have learned the condi
tion in respect to. sanctuaries, of three
thousand two hundred and ninety-five
churches,• or of
,about eleven-twelfths of
the whole number of churches in connexion
with the General Assembly. Of these
three thousand two hundred and ninety
five ehurches,, six hundred and fifty-three
are reported•without any house of worship,
two hundred and thirty-two as worshipping
in sanctuaries insufficient for their present
wants, and two hundred and sixteen as in
debt for the honses they occupy. The
faCteknOin to is'render it safe to say, that
one-half the sanctuaries now belonging to
our churches, were built in part by aid from
outside the community in, which• they are
Imola and that fully three-fourths of our
destitUte churches must have help frOm
abroad, or remain houseless.
Sinak July, 1855," your Committee have
made appropriations to three hundred and
forty-Six different churches, amounting to
$115,468.33 ; if to these be added twelve
appropriations, amounting to $1,125, made
by the Cetniaittee of the Board of Missions,
froni4pril Ist to' July Ist, 1855, and trans
ferred' to this - Committee, the aggregate
during the five years ending April Ist,
1860,, is three hundred and fifty-eight
different .ohurehes, and $116,593.33. In.
other' vrorde,.about one-tenth of the whole
number of churches under the care of the
Assembly, have been aided through its
Comb:dace in the last five years.
Including $1,495A4 received by the late
Gotrimittee' of the Board of Missions, in
April,-May, and June, 1855, the' receipts
of yoiir' Coinmittee in the five years ending
April let, 1860, were $121,946.40, of which
$92,093.77-was from churches. -
foid' years and nine months the present
Committee of the Assembly , have received
$53,402.34 more `and aided over nine-tenths
as many churches as 'the late Gommittee of
the Board of Missions did in ten years and
nine mbriths. If a still more convincing
proof of the lisdom of a separate organi
zation for, the ,vital work of Church Exten
sion'be needed', it, is found in the fact that
the cAtt'e'ciegslliave hi the last five years con
tributed' Ul f, * Church Extension. Fund
largely iiVer font times - as much as they did
in the preceding ten' years years of combined
effeirtt r irkin the further fact that 3ix hun
dred 'and:''seventeen' churches centribifted.
during thelaat fiscal year, while only one
hundred and sixty-eight churches contrib
uted frentyJalyilso, to April lst; 1855.
The report concludes thus :
While the shave review of, the past bids
us courage,., it cannot
concealltWe tam; inedequaoy of the present
benefactions to'•' this enterprise, or the
necessity of contributions from the more
than tur i e„theutaind,eight,hundrednhurches
on the rollibethe Assembly, who last year
gave nothing to your Committee to aid
them in carrying forward the work you
have ,lai&nponthem. Deducting from this
iii iber those Who in other ways contribute
all they should to church building among
the,destitute, and all who may reasonably=
ask to be excused ,at present, there must
lie,yery many of these churches who
ought to lend a helping hand to their des
titute brethren through your Committee.
To such alio* us to conimend the facts,
that, last year the duly prepared applica
tions exceeded the receipts more than
$16,000; did closed with one hundred ap
plications on file,, calling for over $43,000;
that six, hundred and fifty-three sister
churches-axe without a house of worship ;
that most of 'Apse destitute - churches, and
of the more than one hundred churches
annually organized in our connexion, must
have help from abroad or remain houseless;
and that your Committee so far from, being
able to stimulate destitute churches to
arise and build, have hitherto been com
pelled'hY want of means to repress rather
than encourage worthy applications. If to
these arguments for increased coliperation e
be added s the benefits that ordinarily result
from tho,erection of sanctuaries such as the

Arthur and the Old Clock
One Sabbath day, Arthur was left at
home alone, while all the rest of the family
attended church. Instead of regarding the
day as he should, in the quiet perusal of
the . Bible =and other' : good books,' Jae made
it a day of self-amusement. As soon as all
were gone, Arthur began to search all the
curious nooks and corners of the time-lion
ored dwelling. The;garret was explored
and many rare curiosities exhumed. An
cient desks and drawers were eiamined, re
veiling their curious, contents to his imper
tinent and childish curiosity. ;
An old clock stood in the corner, with a
tall, gaunt, brown case. Within the dark,
hollow closet, Arthur had often peered,
but he had not been allowed to examine
very closely the mysteries of the clock case.
Now was a fine opportunity. He opened
the narrow door. The long pendulum was
swinging back and forth at regular' inter
vals with aloud tick, tick, tick, tick. Two
long, cylindrical, tin` weights, and'two very
little lead weights were hanging by small
Arthur had seen his father "wind up
the clock," and he knew it was done, by
pulling down the little:weights. "It must
be rare sport," he thought, cc to wind up
the old clock." He would make the at
tempt, at any rate. So taking hold of the
small weight, he tugged away right, man
fully. 'The wheels purred, and the' great
weight began to rise. ' '
"Faster," said Arthur, ".go up faster,"
and giving :a sudden pull, the cord broke,
and down came the heavy weight with a
loud noise ! Then there was a terrible
whirring emetic , .. the .clock wheels for a
moment, and then it stopped: The ticking,
ceased, and the pendulum stood still
"0, what have'l done now?" cried Ar
thin., in distress. "0, what will father
say to me ' when he sees what I have done ?"
Arthur closed the clock door, and for the
remainder of the day, until his 'parents re
turned, was a very humble, quiet boy.
When his father returned,' on looking at
the old clock, he perceived'that it had
stopped. Opening the clock deor, he saw
that the cord of one of the weights had
broken, and that the weight 'had fallen to
the bottoin*of the case.
" How is this, Arthur; did you know
that the clock is stopped,?"
Yes, sir," replied Arthur, "I heard a
great noise in the clock 'case; and when I
went and looked in, behold it was' silent."
Mr. Milton made no more inquiries, sup
posing thak it was an accidental occurrence.
Night came,
and little Arthur went 'to bed
as •usual. His father had tied._ the cord,
and the clock was not "ticking Joudly
ever. To Arthur it ticked louder than
ever. It seemed to say, in 'the Silence of
the night,
" Boy ! boy ! boy!" " A lie! a lie! a
lie!" a Ownit ! own le! (nth: it r".
Arthur did, not sleep much ,Consdienee
whispered to him, and with , the words of
the old clock, said - ,." Arthur, you have told
a lie."
Early in-the morning he 'arose and gazed
up into. the fice of the old clock: ItlOok'ed
very sternly at him. " Quick ! quick !
quick ! quick !" said the clock. So the
poor bey Wept to his':kaiber and told
with a very sorrowful heart. Ecis, father
freely forgave hiiu. And .he' prayed that
God would forgive:Alta, and. never suffer
him to tell a lie again.
Dear children,. never - tell in'untruth.
Lying is a low, meanvice, mid Very wicked.

I Story for ROIRCWiTES
"Can you make me an appropriation for
my boy's new clothes, next week ?"
"I am afraid not, my dear. You know
I have overdrawn already to pay my in
terest money."
" Well, but you have Old ybur sweet
potatoes; you- had ten dollars 'extra last
week, and the money from our boarder,
which I think you might give to me, as I
had all the-trouble of her.' - . •
" I should love dearly to, give it to you,
but we must nave it to live on ; and be

" Oh, dear i" said the wife, impatiently.;
" there is never any , money for rue and my
children. I do n't see how the boys are
going to get on much longer. 'There was
not a single pair of pants, left over, list
Winter, and Harry's overcoat has been
worn three 'Winters,. and is very shabby."
" Well, I do n't,know what yon can do.

"Next month," said , the wife despairing
ly to herself, some hours afterwards;
do n't see how I can wait that long." So
she went to the closet, in the little 'boY's
room, to examine the old coats And panta
loons, and see what was to be done.
"It is a shame," said she, . " that' :I
should be required to menditp`,any of these
old things:' This coat is entirelrworn: out
in the sleevesrand ,so faded and shabby ;
this one has been worn byt theta both ; ,,I

are done.
But then came better thoughts. "It is
vacation. Perhaps by school 'time I can
have the money. Oughtn't I to' try' to
make some of these thing }do a little
longer? My husband is in unusual diffi
culty. It is hard to get money, and after
all, it is not so much matter what these
little fellows wear.. Perhaps a new patch
is as much to their mother's credit as a
new garment There are plenty of pieces
like this brown coat. Let me see what I
can do."
So she sat down, ripped the back of each
sleeve, pieced them down from :above the
elbow, and refaced them; then 'faced the
back anew, put .omthe missing , bnttons, and
held it 'tip. " Reilly, did not think it
would look qoyy . ell; it will last another,
niontbat least,n , nd the pieces will soon wear
the same color."
Then she took a second.. one, Which had
a good plain lining, and turned it com
pletely, put the buttons' on the 'other:, Side;
bound the neck and:Sleeires, and` it
look as good as new. An hour in the
evening ' spent in making over the old caps,

The Roman Wall.
The January number of the London
Quarterly has an article on the Roman`
Wall, containing some facts worth trana 2 .,
(erring to this column. The military
character of the Roman occupation of
Britain is - marked by 'various cirethnstan 7
ces. • The cities of the conquered province
sprung from camps, retained to the last, the
form and arrangements of Country Oar-
