"Yours for the truth" lias stated lor the Informa tion of the public what the public gen erally know; that tho M. Ji. Church have not "authorized, appointed or en couraged or controlled" said prayer meetings, Arc, in this village, and at the Bay, but on the contrary have op posed the work, locking their unoccu pied house at the Juay against the peo pic that laid their money for a tree church, and a living Gospel in said church. Jf Malcotn has not authorized or on couraged the v. ork, God has, and has sealed the same bv the conversion of souls. I never yet learned that in "truth" it was necessary to be "au thorized " by the M. E. Church to hold a prayer-meeting, or preach the Gospel. I might suppose that the Congregation alists, Baptists, and others, got their nermibsion from the M. IS. Church, to hold religious meeting, from your col unins. There are several branches of Mctbodst Church, "legitimate," the and these meetings arc held by "Free Meth odists " encouragement, who believe in working as Wcley worked, for the sal vation of men, and not to build up a :-ect or obtain worldly honor. God being with us we shall succeed in his good work though professing christians sit in theseat of the scornful Hut I pity tho church or minister who docs not encourage prayer-meetings, where profane men are converted to God. lie is a .low who is one inward ly and bears the fruit. The public arc cordially invited to attend all of our meetings, and judge for themselves. Meetings are held every Sabbath at 10J o'clock, a. in., at the Bay ; Sunday and Wedne.-day evenings at " Western He serve " school house. Yours in the Truth, W. T.
