In tendering his resignation Dr. Wilson said: "Happy memories will always cluster about my thoughts of the Western Church and its dear people. Of unpleasant features there have been just enough to remind us that roses do not grow without thorns. We have experienced joys and sorrows in sym pathy with each other. "It has been my pleasure to have baptized your children; It has been my joy to have received them Into the church; it has been I my happy privilege to have united some of I them In the bonds of holy matrimony; I 4 have had your confidence in the ministry I of the word and of prayer In the chamber I of sickness; it has been my sacred duty to I stand by the forms of your departed dead I and remind you of the resurrected Christ, the Christian's hope. From this desk I have ministered to you of the word of God, as He has given me light to understand it, and always with the purest of motives. Not frequently, I believe, have I been misunder stood or misinterpreted. To err is human. Undoubtedly both you and I have made mistakes, but the spirit of charity has kept us in the bond of peace through these years. "These experiences which we have had in common form ties between us that can not be severed even by the dissolution of the pastoral relation." Native of Chicago.

Under the marine laws all sailing vessels of over 700) tons burden have to undergo an annual inspection at the hands of the steamboat Inspection service to determine their seaworthiness and to ascertain If they have steam power aboard to raise anchors, sails, &c. The boiler used has also to be inspected. It is seldom that the Inspection of sailing vessels takes place here, but the enforced laying up of the fleet of coasting schooners while awaiting business made it necessary for the big four masted schooner Edward E.
