r J? -V. Christian Worship at Rugby. Mr. Thos. Hughes, in his address at Rugby, stated that the purpose of the Board was to have one place of worship for all Christians, of whatever denomina tion, and expressed the hope that all would heartily join in such union ser vices. The fine church building is not yet completed, but services are held v Sunday forenoon and evening at Hotel Tabard. The forenoon service is Epis copal in form, and the evening service is usually conducted by a member of some other denomination. . The attend ance upon both meetings is very fair for the number of settlers, and the audience at both is very largely composed of the same individuals. The earnest attention of those present is a pleasing evidence that they have come there to worship God, and not to answer to the roll call of any particular sect. So far the faith and hope of, the founders seem to be verified in the practice by the settlers. The hearty union of all in the commu nion service recently held, was a striking evidence of the recognition of the fact that all the true worshippers of God are one in Christ Jesus. How pleasant to see people gathered here from such widely sundered parts of the universe, amid the beautiful and varied works of nature, uniting so sincerely, so harmoniously in the worship of nature's God I And why should it not be so ? No one has, or can have, the exclusive control of the heart, ear, or hand of God; but all who serve God in spirit and in truth are accepted of Him. May this experiment, so happily, so ..successfully inaugurated in this new T--.yrS ' town, go on gaining strength with in . (teasing numbers, until the names Chris tian and Christ shall be the magic words to unite heart to heart and hand to hand, in the love and service of Him who came to seek and save the lost, and bids the weary and heavy laden to come and learn of Him and find sure , Y , rest to their souls. May the success of ' ' J ' J i this experiment prove to the world that all Christians of whatever name or creed may blend in perfect harmony their praises for blessings received, their ap plications for mercies desired, and jour ney on helpfully together to lands that are fairer than the fairest on earth. A. A Cabin-et Meeting on the State of the Weather. On the evening of the 29th of Decem ber, things began to look blue around "The Cabin," at Rugby. The coun tenances of some of the "main promo ters" began to wear an aspect of solem nity; the less interested ones began to slap their hands and jump around "right smart;" and generally indicate that in their opinion there was a "wow and a wump'us" going on at the office of ' Old Prob. " As the shades of evening drew on, they too began to lose their indifferent manner, and looks of serious mindedness began rapidly to take its place, for it was noised abroad that Dr. Kemp's maximum and minimum ther mometer, hanging on the big oak at the door of the "Tabard," had struck zero. Now, in the mind of "the oldest inhab itant" of Morgan County, zero means something, something awful; so that airs of solemnity and serious-minded-ness soon changed to expressions of awe and terror. No jokes were perpetrated around the cabin fires that night. AH available pieces of old carpet, over and even under clothing, were heaped upon the beds to ward off the terrible northern intruder, but to no purpose. The cracks and crannies in the pine cabin began to open wider and wider, and at about three o'clock in the morning, the Boss called out : 'Are any of you froze ?" Six voices in response answered "Yes! all of us." A short but impressive silence was broken by "Whar do you s'pose we are?" Response in chorus, " In Ten nessee." A longer silence was broken by a voice proceeding from the bunk in the north-east corner of the cabin (in dicating a set and determined purpose, tinder breath), "Who wrote the Rugby pamphlet?" Wild and mixed responses of "Yes, that's it, who? that's what I 'd like to know ? never known to be below ten above, did it say ? beautiful snow? - thirty what ? no ! yes ! well, we '11 find out! Bob, you get up and build a fire, and, say, Bob, put on your pants and go out " Pants ! I ' ve got 'em on I slept in 'em." "Well, slip on your coat,' and go out and strike a match, and see how she does stand." A short interval, a whiz, slap-Kng, open and close of the cabin door, and Bob announced with an air of one who had something to disclose, Seven degrees below zero ! " Nothing more was said. Bob built the fire in silence ;Vour break; fast was eaten by lamp-light, and with almost closed mouths, ' the cold wild turkey left over from yesterday was al most untasted; the venison steaks were frozen too stiff to cut; the quails were lying cojd and unpicked in the corner. By solemn and implied assent, the entire Cabinet resolved itself into a committee of the whole, and determinedly proceed ed to the Doctor's office, where they were met and at once disarmed by the handful of letters, papers and dispatches just being received, announcing the march and destruction of the terrible cold wave from the north-west; and as the indications from all the different sections of the country were given, the chairman became satisfied that no "foul" had been committed upon Rugby, and the Cabinet returned home in sunshine. What we had left from breakfast was joyfully warmed over for dinner, after which the "school master" read us a homily upon faith and p3tiyi vVe The Rugby Public Library. We are much pleased in being able to report that valued grants of books, maps, &c, continue to arrive from the Secretary of State at Washington, and other States of the Union. The truly munificent Qh of about 5,000 volumes, subscribed by va rious American publishers through the noble exertions and influence of Mr. Dana Estes, of Boston, will not be sent forward until such time as the library building is erected. Mr. J. N. Clarke, the Treasurer, will be happy "to receive, and glad to acknowledge, any amount that lriends mav be pleased kindly to forward as donation to the buildinaJu Rugby Philharmonic Socifn; are happy to find that our musical friends have so soon formed an institution in the colony which is destined to prove a source of future musical exercise and culture to themselves, and especially. to be a delightful acquisition to the attrac tions and enjoyments of present and fu ture residents of this rapidly increasing Anglo-American colony. We wish our friends every possible success in their enterprise, and we shall be delighted to witness their first public musical formance.
