ltev. Arthur J. Covell, a gradúate of the University, class of '87, and president of the Students' Christian Association in his senior year, has justbeen installed in his new charge at Waterbury, Verin on t. His wife was Miss Anna Campbell, daughter of Andrew Campbell. The Vermont Chroniele, of Montpelier, Vt., contains the following: On Tuesday, February 3S, a council met at the Congregational church, called to install Rev. Arthur J. Covell, late of Flint, Mich. Dr. W. S. Hazen was chosen moderator, and Rev. C. W. Longren scribe. The act of the council dismissing Mr. Covell, and the resolution of the church in Flint on aceepting bis resignation, spokein warm terms of his character and work. The narrativo he gave of his personal religious experience was of unusual interest, showing howhe had been led by the Spirit of God f rom open skepticism to a reyerent and hearty acceptance of Christ as a Divine Saviour. His statement of doctrinal belief was clear. By a unanimous vote the council decided to proceed with the public services of installation, which were as follows: Reading of the Scriptures and prayer, Rev. E. S. Fiske; sermón, Prof. G. Campbell, of Dartmouth College; installing prayer, Rev. W. S. Hazen; charge to the pastor, Rev. G. W. Gallaglier; fellowship of the churches, Rev. C. W. Longren; address to the people, Rev. Austin Hazen; concluding prayer and benediction by Pastor Covell. The sermón of Professor Campbell, ou the towers and bulwarks of Zion as built, beautified and completed by doing. knowing and loving, was carefully prepared, very suggestive, and thoroughly pervaded with the spirit of the gospel. The other parts had their individual excellences, and held the attention of an interested eongregation to the end. This church is very fortúnate in secnring, so soon after the late pastors leaving, another man to take his place in whom all are united. The impression made on the couucil by the candor, intelligence and spirit' of the new pastor was very favorable, and all look for a useful and happy ministry.
