I have for the past nine dnys, been stuying in Wilmington, and noted muuy things of in terest in reference to the town. My letter, on this occasiou, will be confined thereto, which I will be found readable. Wilmington is the largest city in the State of Delaware, having a population of upwards of twenty thousand. The first object of interest which meets the eye, coming into the town, Is tho old Swedes Church, situated on Christiana Creek, which was erected in the year 1098—be ing two years older then the one in Philadelphia, of the same denomination, which was completed him case into for in 1700. in 1700.

For instance, he speaks of "iuiiuouseuunibcrs," a " vast mul titude," nnd a "great jubilee;" phrases Hint have a specific application, that can refer only to tho Red Lion Meeting ; while, the other hand, ho proposes a ting Camp Meetings, as a remedy for the evil depicted and depl supposes thu the locnl evil without a 1 " Diamond .State."

That there should be a great deal of confusion is not surprising. But that this pic f the outsiders is somewhat hyperbolical the author will hardly deny.

But as I have nlready made this article long, let us devote a moment to tho remedy pro posed, the prohibition of Camp Meetings by statutory law.
