year's camp meeting*, states that the con*
versions hare been very few, indeed, as
compared with the results of ordinary
protracted meeting* in thechurches. The
reason assigned for this unwelcome state*
ment is that modern camp meetings have !
degenerated into pleasant social gather- 1
inga in the woods and at the seaside. It 1
is feared that a large number of those j
who assemble at these meetings are drawn
together not as m olden times for purpo* j
sea of religious communion and qaicken- <
ing, but to paM a portion of the warm <
weather in cool places and enjoy the excitement
of large gatherings of agreeable
people. The system of entrance feea and 1
Sunday trains are also mentioned as op- 1
erating against thespirtual success of the {
tumintr meeting*. All these criticisms
are made by the truest friends of Christianity,
and the naDer in which th*v <
pear supplements them with the hope
that they may lead all camp meeting t
manager* to avoid these obstacles in fu- 1

tact that the pilots had at their own exj?ense

is proposed to remove the aide ledges ol
the falls, thin widening the channel 130
feet. lie called attention to the fact that
frequently on a run boats are detained at
tiie falls from forty-eight to sixty hours
at a great expense, and if this improvement
is made boats can pass over the
falkwlthout the slightest delay.
Relative to the method to be pursued
in obtaining means to make these improvements,
there is now in the fund,
from the receipts of tolls at the canal,
$43,000, and he believed if Gen. Weitzel

jetty system.
