On last Wednesday night the "Wednesday Evening Class" of tbe M. E. Church, A. G. Cox, leader, celebrated their 20th anniversary. The exercises of the evening were of a very interesting character. After singing the 704 hymn, and prayer by the pastor, Rev. Dr. Matlaek, Mr. Cox proceeded to give a brief history of the class. It appears that in the year 1855, the "Monday Night Class," Joseph W. Gary, leader, becoming too large, it wag thought advisable to divide it into two classes, the members of the new class selecting Wed nesday night for the time of their meeting and made choice of Mr. William Beck as their leader, who was accordingly appointed by Rev. R. H. Patterson, (now Rev. Dr. Patter son, of the Philadelphia Conference,) he be ing the Preacher in charge. In 1856, Mr. Becke removed from Middletown, when Jesse Lake, Esq. was appointed leader of the class, Rev. Mr. Patterson still being the pastor of the church. In 1860, Mr. Becke again re turning to Middletown, Mr. Lake resigned, when Mr. Becke wag for the second time ap pointed leader of tbe class, by Rev. T. W. Simperer, preacher in charge. In 1865, the present leader, A. G. Cox. was appointed to fill the vacancy occasioned by the removal of Mr. Becke to Washington, D. O., the Rev. Wm. Urie, being the preacher in charge. The class is now in a very flourishing condition, numbering sixty members. The exercises of the evening consisted ofsinging,and addresses by A. G. Cox, Rev. Dr. Matlaek, J. B. Roberts and W. J. H. Lingo, after which the company, numbering about 70 persons, sat down to a bountiful repast prepared by the ladies of the class. he took occasion to say that he had been made the conveyancer of a book, a small token of regard from tbe male members of the clasB to their leader, and on their behalf he presented Mr. Cox with "Whsdon's Commentary on Joshua, Ac. Mr. Cox responded in a brief speech in which he acknowledged that it was a complete surprise but none the less appre ciated by him. During the evening, letters were read from Mr. Becke, tbe flret leader of the class, and others. It was agreed by all that this was one of tbe most pleasant entertainments in which they had ever been privileged to parti cipate.

They arise from contamination and impurity of the blood, and are to be seen all around us every where. One quarter of all we meet are taint ed with them, and one quarter of these die of them ; die foolishly too, because they are cur able. Ayer's Sarsaparilla cleanses the Scro fulous corruption from the blood, renders it pure and healthy, and effectually expurgates the foul contamination from the system. No longer groan under your Scrofulous disorders, since tbe learned Ayer has provided his mas terly combination ef curative virtues that he calls Sarsaparilla.— Montgomery (Ala.) Ad vertiser HARRIED.

A NEW DEPARTURE. Four good reasons why Cigar Manufactur ers should buy their Leaf Tobacco of JAMES DALEY & CO. First—We select and grade the leaf into Wrappers,Seconds, Binders and Fillers, throw ing out frost-bitten and all uacured tobacco. Second—We pack in cases ranging from thirty-five to seventy pounds, thereby giving a manufacturer a chance to see what he is buying. Third—Whole cases have ruined many manufacturers by being nnsweated, tender and losing from sixty to one hundred pounds in weight. Fourth—Every case guaranteed actual weight and delivered free of Charge to any part of the city. ALL WE ASK IS A TRIAL. JAMES DALEY & CO., N. E.
