The Sunday School of the West Press
byterian church waa held yaeterday af
ternoon at 3 o'clock.
There was almost
a packed audience, and the programme
waa very good.
The exercises were opened with sirging
"Hail, the Day of Jubilee," which was
followed by tbe repetition of the Lord's
Prayer by the school.
The report of the Superintendent of the
school next. It expressed gladness at the
anniversary, and dwelt upon the working
force which the school embodied. Dur
ing the past lOyears, its progress has been
surprising, while during the year just
past, the attendance haa been large and
increasing. The school have been huccess
ful in receiving order, and in the many
sonls, souls that have been converted. The
report closed with an expression of hope
that 10 years hence, the 20th anniversary,
those present to-day, who might be called
away, would sleep in the hope of a glorious
A memorial hymn was sung by the
school in a yery touching manntr, after
which the pastor, Rev. Mr. Keigwin made
a deep and ieeling prayer, "Beautiful
world of Light" was then sung, and the
rendering of a service entitled, "I am the
Light of tbe World" was commenced,
which consisted of scripture reading, reci
tation of the scripture*- and song, the
source ef the light being represented by a
miniature lighthouse on the stage. The
Second part of this service was entitled
"Seeking the Light, which was repre

address, in the commencement of which
be complimented the sch k> 1 on its cred

prised, he said, to see such a working
school at West Church. The thought that
came to him was that it would neither be
unpleasant or impossible to have 1000 in
stead of 500. He expressed a very warm
feeling for the Sabbath School, and said

A general preia despatch state* that tbe
Greenback opponent of E. L. Martin, who
was elected to Congress from Delaware by
the Democrat*, will lnstttnte a contest for
the aeat upon the ground that Martin was
convictsd of aiding and abetting the Rebel
lion, and that, never having been pardoned
by the President, he Is Ineligible to any
office of honor profit under the Government.
Martin claim* that he waa pardoned by
President Johnson, but the recurds of tee
United States Court at Wilmington do not
appear to show any evidence that such par
don was received. Upon Inquiry at the
State Department In references tbe matter,
tbe following memoranda waa furnished
"Edward L. Martin waa convicted of aid
ing and assisting tbe Rebellion and aea
r.enced to pay a fine of $1,000 and the cost
of proeecntloa, and was pardoned uncos
dltionslly October 5, 1866." This record
aettles tbe question of Martin's eligibility,
■o ground for contest. Martin had about
7,000 majority over Jackson.
