Editor of the Telegraph i W now have quite an Increased rellgons Interest, and a series of meetings are being held at the Presbyterian church, attended by members of the different churches, with the Pastors Rev. nougb, Btsples and Hlckok, pre siding. Thejlrtf meeting of this week by p pointment in the series wss Monday evening, being a prayer and conference meeting, and increased interest and promptness wss shown. Od yesterday Mr. Wells was released from bis labors in your town and allowed to spend the dsy and evening with us preaching at 10 A. M. and 7 P. M., and talking to the Sabbath School children at 8 P. M. The atate of feeling Is shown by the rising for prayer last evening of some 95 or more, most of whom are young. The dutietof Chrut uint, preparation for a work of grace, ftc, were forcibly presented Tuesday morning, and that evening, the "sufferings of a crucified He. deemer," presented with great pathos. After tbe sermon prayer meeting for the benefit of inquirer was held for an hour with tbe very apparent sanction of Divine presence. To day we have a prayer meeting at 11 A. M., and al so a meeting in the evening, and probably to be repeated dally during the week and longer If practicable. The weather and traveling are very forbidding mud and storm do not quench the ardor of the people. Afternoon. The prayer meeting at It A. M. shows very conclusively that the "fields are white for the harvest." Several of the young are sure they have been accepted, and are full of trust and confidence, and young men in the full vigor of manhood have at this meeting avowed them selves fully determined to "stand up for Jesus." Surely the Christian has great cause lor lejoiuiug. By the way, every one Is full of an increasing interest for the cause in Ashtabula, and be assured our hearts fully respond to the G.

Mr. Lyman Curtlss, a long resident of Say. brook, ha sold his farm to Xenophoa Quin- ton and has purchased another in Trumbull, whither he shortly lutends moving. Mr. Isaac Flint of Saybrook and George Flint of -Madison Englishmen who have been in this country some twenty five years are intending to spend the coming sum mer on a visit to Oid England. By Industry and economy they have secured a compcten cy sufficient lo enable them to take such a trip, and all wish them ben meyage. Mr. Almond J.

The necessity for such an institution does not very clearly appear, We believe, there baa bee no time in tbe past history of Ashtabula, when such aa establish ment was called for.

DAILY RECORD OF THE MEETINGS. re. or the be On Thursday of last week there was the rec ogoltion of a spirit of opposition. Th open letter bad been circulated throughout the Cora munlly but by some mistake bad not reached tbe party to whoa It was addressed. A re, quest bad been made that this circular should be answered- During tbe diy a request was circulated and signed by the clergymen and prominent members, that Mr, Well should repeal the sermon to Moralist,' The sermon was taken down by a reporter from Cleveland who had been supplied (hat it might be pub Ilihed at some future time. A large audience listened atteniively to the argument, many fol lowing it with more eate for having heard it before. At the close Mr. Wells In a brief and careful manner took up the various apeciflca lions one by one, twelve iq number, and quo ted passages of Scripture In reply, scarcely using language of bis own except by way or application. The denunciation of the man referred to In the circular was Justified by declaring his po sition and course, giving the name of Mr. Vic ars of Cinciunati, On Friday morning Mr. Wells In a very af fecting and melting way told of bis early relig ous experience and very tenderly committed the young convert to the care of Christians and the clergy. Tso words have shown so much the loving and tender feelings of his heart as did these, and he sat down overcome with emotion, . On Friday evening the sermon wss on the text, Isaiah LII 8, "Ye have sold yourselves for nrught," and ahowed how sinners often deceived themselves gave themselves over to evil and received nothing In return. On Sabbath day the usual services were held iu tbe different churches. In the after noon a children's meeting waa again held In the Methodist house. About 600 were present, and the speaker addresed the au dience on the 'golden chain," with its four links Jesus, ho liness, usefulness, happiness, heaven giving many Incidents aud illustrations. On Sabbuth evenlnir. a large audience assembled at the Methodist church expecting to bear tbe fare well discourse. It was announced, however, that appointment were such that Mr. Wells could stay ano'.her week, and the congrega tion expressed their gratification at the an nouncement by rising, aud thus voting a request that he should stay. Tbe sermon was on Ihe topic "linio Is short." The time of probation is short ; the time for growth In religion i-hort ; the time for uoful labor is short. The stcoud meeting was held in the basement, and although it took nearly an hour to make the transfer, it was lull of iutense interest is probable that few meetings have shown free an expression as did this. Thirty-seven expressed a desire for prayer, by special ra qui sis. On Monday morning a meeting waa held the Cougregatioua! church aa usual, and Monday evening the sermon was on the para ble of the "Prodigal eon." On Tuesday morning, the meeting was con ducted by" Rev. Mr. McGiffert, and in the eve- ning tbe services were couducted by Rev. D. Peet, Mr, Wells being absent at KiugsviJto. The subject of the discourse was "Resistance to truth hardeus the heart." Ou Wednesday morning Mr. Wells returned and announced that tbe meetings at Kings ville, morning, afternoon and ereuing, beeu attended wilh great interest, resulting the uniting of the three cuuiehes in special work, aud In the rising of 24 Inquirers prayer. Last evening, Wednesday, tbe secoud delegation from Cleveluud was present. mcetng was held in tbe Methodist cuurctt. Mr. Davidson, a conductor on C. C. ft I. R.. first narrated bis experience, telling be had gol akk of the excesses of sin, then bow he had srlugglee In mind, and bow at the bed side he knelt with Mary wife and gave himself to God. Mr. Charley Smith told tbe simple tory of conversion of Christian usefulness aud happiness, Hart nlso In a few choice words and happy anecdote addressed the people, and at close, Mr. L. H. Cobb, a member ef Ike Epis copal church, lo a very feeling and heautllul manner told of the delights of Christ's service, The storr of Uus tw boys crushed on R, R.,'the story of Ibeiittle girl ntstliug ru,.,', aide, the description ol the moun tue a ao Tha are is tain path and the open door, with the bruised feet and weary limbs, but tbe rest ol home, beautiful-all these were very touching.
