Seklom has a sermón preachcd fïoin a pulpit been the chiefest topic of coiiversaüon of in entire comnuinity ; seldom has a Sunday evening's disconrae been bettei advertised; seldom has a city cluirch been two smal! lor its congregation ; seldom has tbere been a better opportnnity to reach thoée most needinz reform; nevcr bas that opportiinity been better used than last Sunday uigUtby the J!ev. Ii. B. Pope. Wltliin five minutes after the doors were opened every seat in theehurch was crowded, aud before the service began more hadgoneaway unable to enter than were already inside. Perhapp a third of tlie audience were comjiclled to stand, yet for two lioursthey held their places In silenne and respect; The speaker, notwithstandisg a hoarsencss, bronght on by exposure, lnunched ont freely tlie niany indiscreet metboda adopted by the temperance workers. and boldly arraigned the prevalling crime of liceutiousiiess. Conway was fully shown up, as were some of bis supporters, and take it withall its attending circumstances, the occasion was one of rare interest. As a large part of the audience were those unaccustomed to church-golng, and as the theme bad in it so miich of iniportance to all lovers of the human race, that discourse has already done more good than a hundred ordinary sermona.
