ANNUAL OATII Kill NO OF TUB P. U BUM I 1>AY SCHOOLS— ADDRESS OF WKLCOliM iticsroNHK nr hihhop lkb, btc. I The occasion of the annual gathering ©f the children of the Protestant Episco , p a i Sunday Schools, which took place ' l lhe Grand Opera House, last evening, I ma 4 e doubly attractive by assuming 1ph* 1 ** 0 of a welcome to Bishop Lee, I who only recently returned from atrip to Europe. The attendance was very ' large, completely filling the Opera House, op stairs aud dowu, and the stage was oc cupied bv a number of the clergy and laity of the church including Bishop Lee : and Bishop Stevens, of Pennsylvania. Rev. W. J. Frost, D. D., of Trinity Chapel, conducted the exercises, which I opened with the usual church services, : alter which Rev. T. Gardiner Littell, of 1 Ht. John's Church, arose and rcud to B shop Lee the following j A DDKKSS OF WBLOOMH. ; Right Rcvertwi Father: I I am charged with the most grateful °f wtJ looming you homo in the name I of the superintendents, teachers and j scholars or our Hund.iy Schools. i n Henry the .Second's progress through .Germany, while other courtiers came I with their treasures, Couuf Aismsbery brought his children, and presented them to Lis sovereign as the most valua ble ottering ho had to bestow. And is it not most fitting that we bring to you to j night the Church's children? j are of the family, could we rej out them? It is not the best, the hear tiest welcome, to assure our Chief Shep herd that, from the fiock over which the Holy Ghost hath made him ovor-eer, the lambs are not wanting? None reognizes more fully than your self the truth that we raunot better luain utegrity of »lie saviour's teach ing couorning his realm, than by caring for such as are "of the Kingdom of •u." if we offer congratulations and give thanks lor your safe return, we know that you will especially rejoice to hear, firsr, children's songs of praise to the Great Father above, und yourself to stimulate th* lr cry in the Temple, "Ilosautia to the son of David !" At the same time,in sweet strains of one of their own elder sisters, and with the Church's thanksgivings, they bless God for your coining again. Wo remember the thrilling story of that city approached by an army which it had no power to rosist. The wisdom of every counsellor was utterly ai fault, until one proposed that the children be sent to plead for mercy. Would not the enemy oe reminded of his own little ones and his heart he softened? Two thou sand set out iu procession from the city gate; and, after a sickening suspense of parents and friends, returned, waving branches and shouting that the hostile army would withdraw and they were safe. And we think that this army of the young here to-night mean to say that, un der your leadership, they will do the.r part in the spiritual warfare for the City or God. 'And we think that, in turn, the gentle, but irresistible, importunity of the denenileut child, will ever prompt us to still more devoted obedience to tn iour's injunction, "Feed my lambs." In your abseuce you have heeu follow ed by many prayers. Now, as we wel come you again, we pledge to you our constant aud earnest peiitions, as in the past, for Divine blessings upon your work. God speed you in what you do for all the Church's children. T. Gardiner Littell. Supt. of St. John's Sunday School. W. J. Frost, Bupt. Sunday School of Trinity Chapel. WM. J.

Terrible Storm Dowu the Stole. destruction by the wind. a in ed ed g a thanksgiving service St. Andrews Church, at Ber Special to the Gazette. Dover, Oct. 22, 1878. This part of the State was visited by a terribl« storm of wind and rain last night. At about 9 o'clock the rain began to fall here, and continued until about half past twelve, when the wind began to rise,and continued getting higher and higher un til at about four o'clock this morning, it blew almost a perfect hurricane, clatter ami hanging was almost infernal, and the shrill pipings of the wind, high above all, made a perfect pandemonium which continued until daylight when the wind lulled slightly and continued to go down until noon to-day, when it became perfectly calm. Already reports of damages to lite and property begin to come in from all quar ters. The damages will he particularly heavy along the hay shore and marshes, where an ahnonnully high tide was super added to the terror of the storm. The tide rose to a height unprecedented, Hooding the marshes to a depth of eight or Urn feet. It is currently repotted that several men lost their lives near Leipsic, where a number of persons were cutting salt hay. Several persons who were known to be on the marshes, are missing and it is generally supposed that they are drowned. Several narrow esctti>es are reported. One party of hay makers were asleep in a shanty, awoke to find themselves afloat in Leipslc creek and had to swim for it. One of the missing men, D. Hancock, was in this party and it is supposed was drowned. All the cattle on the marshes, of which there were a very large number were drowned, at least the greater part of them. A large number of vessels are reported ashore on the marshes, among them a large grain schooner, and a large number of the oyster navy, that took refuge in Mahon's River, and were forced from their anchorage. A small oyster pungy carried 'lir the marshes belonging to Captain Dodd w across the marsh to Sapp's landing in a northwesterly direction, nearly five miles to the mainland. All along the marshes there have been heavy losses, and it is feared in many places a loss of life, as a great many persons were on the marsh, and the tide 4idden and unexpectedly high. At Frederica the steeple of the M. E. Church, was blown off and fell in the street, several houses in the town and hams in the country around were injur ed. At Magnolia, Camden, Wyoming, and other towns below- come reports of small damages to buildings. At Little Creek landing, the tide was so high that the town was partially under water ami the streets could be navigated by boats. The telegraph wires between Dover and Wilmington, were down this morn ing, and the train down, that should have reached here at 11.19, did not get here until 3.15. At Dover the principal losses in the town proper are in the beautiful shade trees which adorn the streets, a large number of which are torn almost to pieces. The public square is almost denu ded oi the fine trees it has taken so many to raise, and many of the finest Besides years trees on State street are down, this there is no damage beyond the break ing of glass and tearing off* of a few shingles and awnings. At the Fair grounds, near tow n, the damage was very considerable. llie machinery building was picked up and thrown down by llie wind, sinasniiig n completely, ami the agricultural products building was torn almost into splinters by the wind and scattered all over the R rounds - Tlui g 1 ™" 1 f ta JJ d u . ht . tle iiijuiwl, some ot the shuttere. &c., being broken up. The other buildings were uninjured. In the country around a number oi barns were blown down, ami cattle anu horses injured.
