Internal officer, whose au thority Was resisted and dtlicd at the Northern Methodists camp meeting, at Clifton, on Wed nesday, says that she ciuip ground looked, to him, more like an illicit distillery than a cunip meeting, and less like a religious assemblage than any place he ever eaw. To the contrary, a letter from the camp meeting, in the Wash iugton Republican, signed K , says : "The camp meeting continues with increasing inter est,and bids fair to prove the most successful ef fort of the church held in this vicinity for years. The leading spirits ot the camp are zealous, godly men, fully alive to the great work they have undertaken, and they are laboring hard for the salvation of anils. Already, as the fruit of their good work, seventeen penitents arc asking prayers and seeking God, and several conversions are annouoced. Services are held at all hours of the day, and holiness is a prominent theme in all the preaching. Chil dreDs' meetings are held at 2:30 p. m., and are conducted by prominent Suuuay school workers, who take delight in instructing the little ones iu the rudiments of Christian faith, and they have always orderly and attentive listeners. Experience meetings and ladies' prayer meet ings are also of daily occurrence, and from both of ihem there are marked resulis The atten dance thus far has been excellent, and the ut most harmony among the managers, tenters and visitors is apparent.

Should the change be made it is the intention of tho company, who have extended their lease of the property now occupied by them as their depot, to improve that property and c reot a handsome shed there, ho that pas sengers will have a covercd way extending from the building to the train, and can step from the sidewalk to the platforms of the cars.

"In making the selection I thought it best to have an entire stranger, young, m.'igetic. of good edueatiou aud ability, whose personal character could be well vouched for, and who would uot himself uudertake to speculate or join with any others iu speculation. In my views I believe the railroad companies will fully concur, and the sclectiou L have made, I think, will give the fullest satisfaction."
