About one hundred and fifty sat down to tea. At the public meeting which followed the number present was considerably augmented. The Rev. II. F. Scott presided, and explained the absence of Mr J.

CHURCH NEWS. ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 21 April 1883
SCHURCH NEWB.: . / .ST. JOHN'S CIIURCIH. In dealing with the sulbject of "Objectionis to the Bible considered" last Sunday night, the Rev. .:I F. Scott remarked that the Bible was not afraid of light, and solicited investigation. It hadul passed through many severe conflicts and nevr beat a retreat. The rev. gentleman then proceeded to deal with four objections which itsnopponents make to the Bible. T he first was that the Bible wasna book of ontrmdic lions. It was urged that a book that is not at unity with itself cannot be true, much less ia divine message. This the lecturer coinceded, but denied its applicability to the Ilible. The highest legal minds were agreed that the best criterion of the truth of human testimony is substantial truth under cirrumstantial varidy. This was the exact nature of the evidence the Bible presents. An eminent scholar had dis covered 3o,ooo different readings of the Bible, and yet not one important difference. The rev. gentleman then proceeded to stat...

The preacher remarked that the words must sound strange to the ungodly. Their great idea was their own ease and. comfrt, an I as the result of all their planning- and -toiling they looked `for' rest and ease-an oasis m the desert-a quiet time after a busy life. But their dianger was to make too much of the body, and too little of the soul, to hbe satisfied with the good things of the present world as to forget the good thingsoftheworltlto come.

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 21 April 1883
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. Mr.. J. T. C. Coutic, B.A., ofliciated last Sunday in the absence of the Rev. J. Gibb, who is enjoying a well-decrved holidna. The xxxii-24, "And Jacob was left alone and there wrestled with him a man until the breaking of day." He dilated upon the natural desire, which we all possess, to become acquainted with the lives of our great men who tower above us as leaders of thought aind action. They are the eagles that soar aloft in the misty heights of heaven, and we are forced to feel that we cannot in any way share their ex perience or attain to their hIigh standard of excellence. Thus in the religious life we can not by any means become compeers of Isaiah, Paul, or Abraham, and are hence despondent. It is with a feeling of relief that we turn to such a type of character as Jacob, who, though base, deceitful, anti unlocablc, passed through? life with stealfast purpose, nd maintained a clinging trust in C God. We nttt have flixed principles, anti must not brand as...

Higgins was next man, and retired without altering the score, the order of the game as McDonald walked to the wickets was 3-0--3 not very encouraging for.the Yarra villeites.
