Free Baptist Anniversaries. THIRD DAY. A social meeting of deep interest was held from nine to ten o'clock, led by Rev. A. H. Morrill. The Temperance Convention was called to order at quarter past ten o’clock, by Rev. J. Rand, chairman. After singing, prayer was offered by Rev. 11. Whitcher. Rev. E. N. Fern aid was chosen Secretary pro tern. A committee of five was appointed to nom inate a list of officers, viz : Rev. I. 1>. Stew art, Rev. W. II. Bowen. E. W. Page, Esq., Rev. II. Whitcher, Rev. W. T. Smith. The committee reported the following list of officers which was accepted and the officers elected: President, Rev. James Rand; Vice Presidents, Rev. II. E. Whipple, Rev. S. 1). Bates; Secretary and Treasurer, Rev. E. X. Fernald; Corresponding Secretary, Rev. J. Burnham Davis. The officers constitute an executive commit tee, with the addition of Rev. A. Deering. The convention was addressed by Rev. A. Deering of Farmington, in his peculiar and earnest manner. He launched at once into statistics and proceeded to show how much rum-drinking costs the people of this country. He showed that the direct cost of liquor in this country is 81,860,000.000 annually: that the incidental cost of crimes, insanity, de struction of grain and other properly is 8-6-. 000,000; that it costs in the loss to labor at least 8600,01)0,000 more. He then showed that the aggregate yearly expense was equal to the cost of the construction of all the rail roads in the country—larger than the value of all the live stock, and would pay the national debt in twenty months. He claimed that the legislature was responsible for the execution of laws ami the manufacture of liquor. He discussed, the State Police question, and thought that it was as essential to have a special police for enforcing the criminal laws against grog shops, as a special police for the enforcement of laws against taking fish, and wound up with an appeal to the church to be more active in tins matter. The venerable Rev. J. Stevens followed in remarks on the same subject. The executive committee was instructed to consider the question of keeping a temperance lecturer in the field. It was voted that in the opinion of the con vention special prominence should be given to the subject of temperance in the Morning Star. The following resolutions were reported and adopted: Resolved, That as a denomination we will hold no fellowship with any person who shall rent a building as a drinking saloon, or tippling shop, ami that we will neither ad mit them to membership with us or to a s> at at the table of the Lord, if we know it. Resolved, That the wide-spreading desola tions of intemperance so hinders the progress of Christianity as to demand of every Christian minister an active and outspoken opposition to the fearful evil. Every church and Sabbath school we claim should be an active temper ance organization. Resolved, That we deem it our imperative duty to secure the enactment and enforce ment of such laws as shall most effectually • etop the importation, manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquor in this country : and to this end we pledge ourselves to vote for such men for office as shall use their official influence to accomplish this purpose. The meeting then adjourned. Afterxoox. The anniversary of the Educational Society was held at 2 o’clock, Rev. G. T. Day. Presi dent, in the chair. Rev. l)r. Graham of Chicago offered prayer. The Treasurer of the Society, Rev. Silas Curtis of Concord, N. II., read the annual re port, which was accepted. The figures of the report we gave yesterday. The Treas urer reported t^iat he held notes, some ol them dating back as far as 1851, amounting in the aggregate to $10,000, which is needed to supply the wants of the Society. Report ae C-'pted. The Corresponding Secretary, Rev. \V. II. Howen of Lewiston, read his annual report, (the 32d) which was accepted. The report states that the past has been an eventful year with the Society. A plan has been proposed, and adopted by which the theological school has been established under the guardianship of Hates College, and the Society relieved ot that care, leaving it free to use its funds di rectly for the education of young men. The Society affectionately appeal to the churches for encouragement and financial help in their work to educate young men who are desirous of preaching the Gospel. We must not only prav over it, but give for it. There were some plain words addressed to the churches. The theological school, al though just springing into life, gives promise of great success. About $2,000 have been expended the past year in aid of thirty-seven young men in different parts of the country. The number of young men needing aid this year will be double that of last year, and the contributions should be made accordingly.— There are twenty-two young men in the first class at the school. ltev. I. D. Stewart read a statement of the financial affairs of the Commission for the pro motion of education in the South, a commis sion which was established for a temporary purpose, and is soon to be transferred to the West Virginia corporation. The liabilities of the commission are,$10,502.85 ; availabilities, $;i2,541.43; balance of property, 820,000.— The farm at Harper’s Ferry has been pur chased, with other buildings. Present cost of entire tarm, $11,000. Received on land sold, 82,000; due on land sold, 84,725. The cor poration known ns Storer College owns some valuable land. This with the property owned by the commission is worth somewhere be tween 810,000 and $50,000. Rev. Mr. Hall was called for and briefly re sponded in eloquent remarks. He said that whether talking on the subject of education, Sabbath Schools, home or foreign missions, the theme is the same. During the past twenty years a million of dollars had been expended by the Free Baptist church. Con sidering the poverty and obscurity of the church in its early days, this is a large sum. Bates College is a monument of industry, perseverance and generosity. Pittsfield Semi nary, the Green Mountain Seminary, and N. 11. Seminary, all demand help. Alter these latter institutions are established on a firm basis, it will be a pleasure to add $50,000 to the funds of Bates College. Hillsdale College is doing excellent work, as are also our edu cational institutions in New York. When we consider the advancement made, we have good reason to thank God. The money for these contributions has come generally from men of small means. Ministers have given one hundred dollars to these funds when they have not property enough to give them a de cent burial, and salaries so small as to fright en a liberal man. They have given money when they themselves should have received aid from the benevolent societies. He closed with an affectionate appeal to the young men who are about entering the ministry to get as good an education as possible and then conse crate it by heart devotion to the cause of the great Master. l’rof. Hayes of Hates College addressed the convention. He commenced by saying that he wished those who were to undertake the task of educating themselves, to adopt such improved methods as are being used by France and Prussia, although these nations use their light and knowledge wrongfully. He wanted young men to be trained for the gospel minis try ; to be prepared by a thorough knowledge of the arts, sciences and languages, to meet the assaults and the arguments of those who are delving into the mysteries of science to disprove the doctines of the Christian religion. An educated ministry is demanded. We speak of a young man being filled with fervor and enthusiasm. While this is neces sary, there should be a trained mind to hack up the fervency and enthusiasm, lie dwelt at length upon the work of preparing our young men for the gospel ministry. Prof. Hayes’ address was an able argument in fa vor of ministerial education, but too long for any report that would do it justice. The interests of the Maine Central Institute at Pittsfield, Penobscot county, were then presented by Kev. G. W. Bean, agent lor the institution. The school is in an important section of the State. It is commended by people of all denominations as a school that is doing a vast amount of good. One hund red and fifty-five students, young men and women, first class students, are receiving an education within its walls. The school has able and efficient teachers; but it is in debt, and greatly in need of money. By the efforts of the Penobscot Yearly Meeting and other friends, the clouds have been gradually lift ing, but still there remains a debt of $28,000. To offset this there are notes and pledges to the amount of 88.000. The dimensions of the Institute building are 118 feet by 08 feet. Only the first story is finished; the whole should be completed to meet present wants. He called upon the friends of education to assist the institution by contributions. K. W. Page of New York pledged §51X1; Kev. Mr. Kimball of Wells, $100; A. N. Hutson, a student in the theological school at Lewiston, 825; Mr. Watson, $50; ami others in amounts of ten and five dollars, the whole fooling up in the neighborhood of about eight hundred dollars. Kev. Ebenezer Knowlton, a liberal donor to the institution, spoke of the blessings flow ing into the heart of the liberal giver. The people in his section were willing to lift to the last ounce, in raising the debt from the institute. The meeting then adjourned. Evening. In the evening the anniversary of the For eign Mission Society was held. IIon.E. Knowl ton, the President, presiding. The exercises commenced with singing the familiar hymn— ■lie Thou O liod exalted high,’’ followed by prayer by Kev. Mr. Sinclair of New Hampshire. Kev. C. O. Libby, Corresponding Secretary, then read the 34th annual report of the society giving a detailed account of the whereabouts and labors of those engaged in mission ser vice abroad. A steady and general progress has been made the past year in mission work. Thirty-six new churches have been added the past clejen months. The amount of contributions the past eleven months is 82,330.31, of which Maine furnish ed 81,718. Donations and bequests $7,192.2(1; interest 8395.11. Total 810,487.(16, or 81, 036.38 more than last year. Kev. G. T. Day spoke ol the mutual rela tions and dependence of the various causes presented at these Anniversaries. Foreign Missions will suggest a strong reason for training our children so that they may early accept the duty of devoting life to the spirit ual welfare of the wot Id. It pleads for Home Missions that we may have resources on which to draw. It calls for education that it may have well trained men for the difficult work of the missionary in heathen lands. And so in pleading for this cause there is a voice heard asking for more efficiency in every other department of Christian benevo lence and activity. The command to preach the gospel to every creature is addressed to all Christ’s disciples. Till the Great Master exempts a church or a denomination from this duty, it may be as sured that the claim is binding; and though a worldly expediency may doubt, Christian wisdom and prosperity lie in the way of a du tiful and submissive faith. And both reason and experience assure us of profit through our work in the foreign field. Conversions multiply as rapidly under the la bors of our foreign missionaries as under those of pastors at home. Conversions among heathen make a mark and guage real progress such as cannot be questioned. Such work re acts upon us by enlarging the plaDs and widen ing the sphere of sympathy of those who be come identified with this broad work. It keeps before us the true ideal of Christian character and service. And this work is grad ually but surely undermining the whole sys tem of heathenism, so that it is to fall sudden ly at no distant day like the sudden overthrow of >'apoleonisnj in France. And when it falls we shall not be willing to lose the moral in spiration coming from the thought that we have done something to procure its overthrow, and are to have a share in the succeeding work of reconstruction. And we, in our humble sphere, may be all the while sending abroad the forces that ultimate in the utter and final downfall of the false systems that oppose the truth and keep Christ from taking his seat among men as the Redeemer and Lord of mankind. Rev. C. O. Libby next followed with a few remarks in which he urged a systematic mode of raising money for mission purposes, and ol an increase of funds. At the next meeting ol the Hoard he hoped to see the appropriations doubled. He spoke in feeling and commen datory terms of the devoted labors of Rev. Dr. Bachelder, who is now on his return from India, having literally worn out in the mis sion service. He solicited contributions in his favor which resulted in raising $3t).03. On the adjournment of the Society's anni versary the convention reassembled, the usu al aeries of resolutions complimentary to the railroad companies, as well as one to the citi zens of Augusta for their ample and cordial entertainment, were passed. A closing prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Day, and the benediction pronounced by Rev. Mr. Knowlton, whereupon the convention adjourned without day. Hallowell Items. AA'e invite the attention of our Hallowell readers to the advertisement of Messrs. Pinkham & Small. They have fitted up an admirable market-place, a few rods north of their former stand, and will in the future as in the past be found attentive and faithful to their customers. AVe hope their efforts to wards affording the city every desirable market facility, will be duly appreciated by the people. Mr. G. N. AVoodsum of Clinton, who a few weeks since purchased a house on Lincoln street, is moving into it the present week. He is a gentleman of reliability and enter prise, and we trust his new surroundings will prove [pleasant and satisfactory. Hudsdon's Burlesque Opera was enthusias tically received on its first presentation last ! evening. Pierce fairly outshone Aerselt; llodsdon was at home on the stage; the little misses iii their songs and dances, received hearty applause; the costumes were elegant. The piece is so arranged that the musical tal ent of all taking [part in it is brought out. Certainly all present were entertained and pleased. The piece will he repeated on this evening.

It is expected that Prus sia in view of the delicate relations with "Eng land, in consequence of the latter's alleged violation of ne utrality, will give Count Born staff, North (ierman Ambassador, indefinite leave of absence, leaving only the Charge ele Affairs at London. The preliminaries of the marriage between the Princess Louisa and the Marquess ot Lorre, eldest .-on of the Duke of Argyll*, have been arranged, with the consent of the (Jueen. It is considered that the possibility of the Princess succeeding to the Crown is too re mote to render the alliance dangerous. It seems that the Empress Eugenie sent feer teen. Bombaki, tend her object was to propose through him conditions of peace, on the basis that Prussia should retain Alsaea and Lor raine and leave the Prince Imperial under her regency to govern France. When told bv Bombaki that nobody in France would tol erate even the presence of the Prince, the Empress hurst into tears. A letter from Eugenic to the Emperor, of winch the Countess Cowper was the bearer, doubtless referred to this project. The Prussians rc-ocupy Bretenil and are certainly advancing on Amiens. The correspondent of the London Post re ports that 1.10 volunteers from the United States recently arrived at Tours and met with an enthusiastic reception. There is much curiosity to know what has become of Marshal I.e Boeuf, as nothing leas been seen of him since the first series of battles around Metz. The people of Tours and vicintiy are re ported as rushing to arms. It is expected that the large’ masses 'of troops called out by Gambetta will take the field within ten days. It is reported that Gen. Bombaki has ac cepted a command in Tours. An engagement took place on the lltli, between the Prussians and French, eet Mes sangerc, in which the latter were defeated and compelled tee abandon the place. A corps of Franc-tireurs left Lyons yes terday for the scat of operation on "the Loire. Gen. Burnside lias had frequent interviews with Bismarck.
