fla}- The numerous friends of Rev.
S. Siegfried, Jr. (hto Editor of this
paper) will be gratified with the peru.
Bal of the following extract of a letter
from him, dated
Morri*ioicn, O., March -1, '50.
Dear Father,- If you will excuse a
line or two I will write them, not hav
ing time to write a full letter.
From Cambridge, where I baptized
6 candidates, rejoicing in love for the
Friend of sinners, 1 went to Kbcnezer.
On Sabbath last I was permitted to
baptize 17 willing and happy converts,
and yesterday 1 1 more. Last night
was a most solemn, tearful, but happy
time; 28 new converts, and two back
sliders (men in middle life) were by tnc
received by the right haTid of fellow
ship. The meeting at Ebenezer was
the most precious I ever attended, both
ih its progress and termination. To
God, who gave tno strength, as Ilia
Unworthy servant, and made known the
power of His Spirit in the truth, be
nil the glory. In the two meetings
at)ove referred to 1 have preached 40
sermons, an 1 baptised 31 candidates.
I am much worn out, but must go to
morrow to Rockhill. Forget me not
at a Throne of Grace.
Foreign advices to Feb. 10th
arc received at New York. The news
in still warlike.
It is taid that the French Emperor
will form a camp of 100,000 troops at
Toulon. It is .inserted that his ii?tcn
tions are decidedly warlike.
On the other hand the English army
estimates show a rfducfion in the homo
or colonial forces of 7500 men, and an
increase in the Indian army of 14,000.
Tli? total force is 220,000 men, of
*hich 10G,000 are for India.
