Now, if that is so, it seems strange that not one of the people who attended these services, , have heard of this' explanation : until they see it disclosed for the : first time in Mr. Lee's letter; and : it aeems stranger still: that they' were not commended to the Con gregational services by Mr. Lee, so that their spiritual .welfare might not be neglected.

There was as usual a large audience who manifested their keen enjoyment by a constant simmer of laughter, which occasionally, broke into loud and general applause. Mr C. A. Schier. the interlocutor and chair man, apologised in some introduc tory remarks for the lack of fresh ness and originality of some of the jokes, which he cnnfessed were in increasingly hard to invent. I-'or this and other reason* the Troupe were probably appearing at Column for the last time in their original character of minstrels.
