In Hinkley, llrunswick, YVevmouth, iJcniittt H
Coriiersundotlier places, 1 held nincof the best attcn-!
ded nnd most exciting meetings I over held in that
section. Tho mooting ut cyniouth wus ulmost n
marvel. It wus held in tho Hall or Academy of
tho Key, Mr. Seymour, (Prosbyteriun) who freely
gave his Hall, nnd exerting himself to tlie utmost
to find sitting or standing room for tho very lurge
numbers in attendance. I never saw a place more
crowded or moro ntteutivo.
Mr. Seymour spoko nt tho close, vindicating
himself from the charge which ho said was preval
ent throughout the country that ho wus pro-slavery,
io. He claimed to bo uhcud oven uf the alsilition-
ists, and charged them with not udvancing with
sufficient rnpldity. TiU teat mu.
Mr. Seymour I should suppose to be intensely or
thodox in his religious view, yet sympathising with
tho suffering masses most fervently. Tho meeting
produced u deep feeling in the community, nnd
sorry wan I thnt I could uoithor stay longer or re
turn ut that time. At theso meetings, a good
number of now subscribers for tho Ituglo wus
obtained, ull paying in udvuneo. This Full must
add ut least Hnlr hundred now subscribers to the
paper, moro if possible.
I must mention one Incident connected with one
of our meetings; thnt at Hoguo's School House, un
Sunday evening. Thero wero present quite a nuin-
