The eighth anniversary of the local Presbyterian Church was celebrated last Sunday by services in the after noon and evening, and on Monday evening by the usual tea and public meeting, and was altogether of a very satisfactory and encouraging character.

The Christian was the light ;'he wis 'commanded to shine, so that,nmenu;islisht see his good work, and glorify and be drawn to the God lihe was serving.
