Mr. Editor, With your permission I will avail myself of your columns to call the at tention of the community to a subject which yearly is presenting to us stronger claims, for action. This town with a foreign resi dent population, numbering above 500 souls, has no suitable place of worship, for them. Some may say that the Seamen's Chapel af fords the necessary accommodation. If this building were intended for this class it is too small to accommodate half their number, but it is not and we are credibly informed, and is has also come to our own experience, that the appropriation of the best part of this build ing for pews by the residents and the num bers that are in the habit of attending are impediments in the way of seamen. They view the building and labors of the chaplain as turned from their legitimate channel. The consequence with many is a repugnance to place themselves, in a situation which must necessarily produce embarrassment, for although their right to a free seat in any por tion of the building is undoubted, yet the sight of a pew door, or a cushion implies a private claim. These cushions are also a source of perplexity to some of the residents themselves, and under the present arrange ment it is impossible always to ascertain when and when scats can be taken without offence to those who consider their claims as better, on account of having furnished the cushions. . I have seen a gentleman and lady who were entering a slip occupied but by one person, refused a scat because that person was expecting some of his friends. The residents have contributed liberally towards the Chapel and the privileges of seats have been granted them, but it is certainly neither wise or ex pedient that this half and half system should prevail. The chapel should be either free to all or the slips transformed into pews and sold or let. I know residents who stay away from divine worship, on account of this irregulari ty and because they do not wish to throw any obstacle in the attendance of seamen, and it is a fact that they are deterred from going on account of the seats being so much tilled by the residents. Now 1 ask, Mr. Editor, whether a better arrangement could not be made; in short, whether, considering the present numbers and wealth of the foreign residents, it would not be best for them to form a church and sustain a clergymen for themselves, and not be dependent longer up on the means of others who perhaps arc no more able to give than we. Yrs. Respectfully, Querv. In reply to this communication, we would state that the same facts have frequently sug gested similar ideas to us, and while we can bear the highest testimony to the zeal and fidelity with which the present chaplain per forms his multifarious duties, and the respect and affection with which he is viewed by all classes, yet it appears to us that the objects of the Seamen's Friend Society would be more directly accomplished could the chap lain be enabled to devote his pastoral labors entirely to them. Enough visit this port to fill the Chapel during most of the year, and we feel assured that there exists among them a strong desire to avail themselves of any re ligious advantages which may be offered. It is also to be considered that the manner and diction which might most favorably afl'ect them, would not be so suitable to the more varied shore inhabitants, and if we apprehend the matter rightly, the primary object of a Bethel is for the religious instruction of sea men. To remove then even the appearance of any objections such as have been urged by Query, we are decidedly of the opinion that the time has arrived when the prelimi nary steps should be taken towards the es tablishment of a church. It will take consi derable time and money to effect it, but until a building could be erected, a hall might be hired for a place of worship. It would not require a large salary to induce a suitable clergyman to settle among us, and one once established, we feel assured that the number of church-goers would be increased and his influence prove an investimable benefit to our growing community. A difficulty pres ents itself, as to his denomination. Without expressing our own opinion, we will merely observe that having conversed with number who have the accomplishment of this object at heart, they have unanimously expressed their opinions in favor of a selection from the Episcopal Church; and this opinion is main ly from those who are not of that faith them selves, but consider her discipline and doc trines as best calculated to unite a communi ty in which so great a diversity of opinions on religious topics prevails, as in this. This is a matter for further reflection, and what ever may be the result, we earnestly hope that this subject will not be dropped, but that some persons will take it upon themselves to learn the sense of the community and to act accordingly.
