Welcomed to Epworth By Pre siding Elder Barrett. THE NEW UNITARIAN MINISTER. Rev. .lames H. Hodglns, of Germantown, Preached the Sermon at the Installa tion of Rev. Alexander T. Bowser, Who Comes From Boston# The reception tendered to Rev, L W. Layfield, the new pastor of Epworth M. E Church, and bis family, last evening, was very cordial and partook mote of the features of a home-gathering than of the meeting of stränget s. The pastor and family arrived in the city from Zion, Md , in the morning, and partook of lunch at the residence of Mr. and Mrs John A. Booker, No. 531 French street. The paiscnage, which has been renovated by the Ladies' Aid Society, was the scene of a merry gathering in the evening, and the supper, prepared by the women of the church, was thoroughly enjoyed by the pastor and family, together with a uumberof others promi nent in the work of the church At 8 o'clock they adjourned to the lecture room of the church,where a large audience had gathered to welcome the pastor to hla now field of labor After the audience bad sung "Corona tlon" and "O for a thousand tongues to sing"—and prayer had been ottered by Rev John White, the presiding elder, Rev. L. E. Barrett, stepped forward, and made the introductory remxrks. He said in substance as follows ; People in the old countries wonder at us Americana as, every four years we elect a ruler, without any semblance of a revolution—bat on election night the people, or at least the majority of the people, retire peacefully to rest, and never give election hardly a thought uu til they awaken la the morning to bear who is the succasaful candidate None, seemingly, are hurt, by the changes, except possibly, the defeated candidates and party. It could hardly be done In the mother countries without bloodshed and revolution. As it is with our govern ment, so it is with the Methodist Church Preachers may serve cae, two, possibly five years at a church. They go to annual conference, however, ready and willing to change their circuits or stations, if the presiding elder and bishop in their wisdom, see fit to so transfer. The preacer packs up hie boxes, moves on to the next charge, and is content One goes, another comes, and the churches of our denomination never are without pastors, and people wonder, 'bow can it be,' Only one other system can be compared with ours,but we do not believe it can ntrpass it, although the Roman Catholic Church has a very complete system Epworth Church has lost its ex pastor, but we are glad that the Wilmington Conference has not lost its 'Jewell.' God's messengers are ready and willing to go anywhere, and should be. and are received graciously and heartily When everything le sifted, for doubtlws the bishop and pre siding elder are fallible, it will be found that but few mistakes are made,and every church receives its pastor with open arms, Y r our new pastor is not a 'heavenly visitant,' but a man of He«h and blood, and should be, and no doubt will be, welcomed, and bo is here to preach to you a pure gospel, minister nnto the sick and distressed, and assist in helping forward the ark of the Lord. In conclusion Mr. Barrett said that in this particular cise Mr. Layfield was marching away from Zion, instead of matching to Zion. However, in coming to the large and commodious new Ep worth he was failing into the hands of good people, and be would not need to exhort the members to rally around hia>, for that they surely would do. He then extended to the pastor and bis family, consisting of his wife, daughter Blanche and two sons, a most hearty welcome on behalf of the membership, to Epworth Church. Mr, Layfield then answered to the re marks of Mr. Barrett. He is a man of medium build, rather tall, with long side whiskers, and is very forcefnl end energetic in bis speech, commanding th at rietest attention of his audience from the start to the finish. In reply, he said the presiding elder could not embarass him, nor did hfffeel embarassed, for two or three reasons First, be did not seek the field ; the field sought the preacher He never asked a favor from his pre siding elder, as Mr. Barrett could testify, except to expect fair pi.y. He was a son of the cbnrcb, and endeavored to be a loyal one. Re always accepted appointments as having been made by Divine order. A second reason is. lie is nut a stranger to Epworth. The reception given him on Sunday last ompletely reconciled him to the fact that he was in the midst of friends and was sure of being made to feel at home among them Every energy of mind and body would be devoted to his people. He had learned to distrust himself and trust more in a higher power. He found the old Gospel more healthy for himself and his people than scientific or theological sermons. He reciprocated the kind welcome given to him by the presiding elder on behalf of people, and speaking for himself, wife and family was glad to be among the good friends at Epworth, and in con clusion expressed Lis earnest desire that the blessing of Almighty God would rest upon the people and their labors during this year. Daring the singing of "We're March lug to Zion," the entire audience filed post Mr. Layfield and N family, who stood in front of the chancel, and greeted each with a warm handshake, and a hearty welcome to Epworth and the city of Wilmington. in bis in a let to REV. A. T. BOWSER INSTALLED. Interesting and Impressive Service» at Unitarian Church Last Night. W. II. the Sermon aud Addresses—Itc-v. Johnson's Talk, The new pastor of the First Unitarian Church, Rev Alexander T. Bowser, was installed last night. The building was handsomely décorait d with palms and flowers. The exercises were interesting aud impressive and were attended by large congregation R«v. D W. More house, of New York, read the scripture lesson. The installation sermon was preached by Rev James H. Bodgins. of German town, Pa He declared that the power of mysticism had passed ana that there no mystery of God which is not open to the humblest individuel. Men sre no longer held under the tyranny of a re ligious hiearcby nor in subjection to the tyranny of a book, lie represented the Unitarian Church aa one of the burden hearers in the evolution of religious lib erty, and that it to day stands amid the religious denominations for loyalty to God, for righteousness and for immortal ity. George W. Stone delivered the charge to the minister. Rov. William H. Johnson, former pastor of the church delivered the ad dress to the people, He said in part ; "First, let me congratulate you on having secured a minister, and that you have not remained long in the distracted, headless condition of a congregation without a minister. You have done well in making this stage as brief as pass! a ble. "1 congratulate you on having made a wise choice, on having elected and se oared one who elsewhere has made full proof of bis ministry, and who comes to yon with the record of good work well done, strong in the faith of the spiritual life, warm in his sympathies, genial and friendly, one who gives the impression of a good all-around wholesome sort of a man. "I pray you to extend to my brother, who comoa to till this honored place, hallowed to me by so swoel memories, an endearing and enduring go<d will. I feel sure that you will not let him sutler for the lack of timely words that will make him feel that bis words are not failing on listless ears, but are like the good seed that will bring forth thirty, sixty or one hundred fold. And If at times, as merely a man, he may fall short of bis best achievements, 1 am sure that your patience will wait upon him Let the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man be living principles in the practice of this church and you will help mightily to build up that 'city of God' to which many generations have looked with longing eyes and yearning hearts " Rev. Alexander T. Bowser Isa native of Canada, having been born in Rockville, New Brunswick, in 1818. His parents were Methodists and he was brought up in that type of religion. When a lad of 15 year» of age, however, he wont to Boston and engaged in business there.

The Barn of I.Him Talley, at Talley vllle. Beet roved Ily Fire Early Title Morning Supposed to Be the Work of an Incendiary, The people in the vicinity of Talley ville were all agog esrly this morning The cause of this excitement was the destruction, by fire, of Ellhu Talley's barn, at Talleyvllle. It was one of the most destructive firee that has ever been seen in that vicinity for many years The fire is supposed to have started about twelve o'clock, but It was fully an hour afterwards before the people were thoroughly aroused. The farmers and people for miles around were attracted by the reflection from the burning barn They crowded around and tried to rescue the live stuck, but the tire had gained such a headway that nothing could be done. There were fourteen head of cattle and two hoises burned. The bel lowing of the cattle as toe flames licked around their bodies was fearful to hear. All of Mi. Talley's crops, including hay and csreals, which were stored in the barn, werejtotnlly destroyed. The fire continued to smolder till about 5 o'clock this morning. Mr. Talley was seen this morning at his stand in the King street market. He said: "My sou Frank returned from a lyceum at Uaubf's corner shortly before 1 o'clock.

The line Is very fine between a delicate interest In a woman who comes to you for advice and a wrong Interest from which there may come a bitter awakening." He said that a minister was a father confessor to many members of bis congre gallon, and In that way came to know many secrets.
