In Superior the audience va8 large, and a tnojority of them ropeclful and attentive. There will never be lewcr friends of ihe slave there, than at present. In Northfield, the congregation vvith regard lo numbere and attention, was all that we could ask. One circumstanie oc curred which is perhaps wortliy of notice. - A MR. BRICE H. COMSTOCK, one or the "bustr sort," cania into the meeting and seoted himself by my 'side.
