N Second-day morning, (Tenth month 26th), the

general Yearly Meeting assembled. In the men's meeting Thomas Foulke appeared in supplication before the calling of the representatives from the quarterly meetings. These were all present except five. The minutes introducing ministering and other Friends in attendance from neighboring yearly meetings were read, and the credentials sent in to the women's meeting. The six epistles from corresponding yearly meetings were read, to the edification and comfort of many minds. A committee was appointed to respond as way opens, and a small committee to assist the clerk in preparing the exercises of the meeting for publication, was set apart. The meeting then adjourned.

In the women's meeting, the usual calling of representatives from the constituent quarterly meetings, elicited the information that all these were present except twelve, for the absence of five of whom sufficient reason was given.

Certificates were presented for Harriet E. Kirk, of Horsham Monthly Meeting, Penna., a minister; Abigail R. Paul, of Salem Monthly Meeting, New Jersey, a minister; Rebecca K. Hall her companion from the same monthly meeting; Thomas Foulke, of New York Monthly Meeting, a minister; Isaac Hicks, of Westbury Monthly Meeting, Long Island,

a minister; Watson Tomlinson, of Byberry Monthly Meeting, a minister; Charles Kirk, an elder of Horsham Monthly Meeting, Pa.

These Friends, bringing minutes, were very cordially welcomed by the Meeting, and this welcome was also warmly extended so others who were present without credentials. In the women's meeting Harriet E. Kirk knelt in prayer, asking of the Father of life and light his baptizing presence and blessing.

No strength is ours, but we look to thy hand for help in thy work and service.” Abigail R. Paul expressed her sence of blessing in the reception accorded to her, and her grateful remembrance of past days of baptism and proving-when Friends of this meeting took her lovingly by the hand and strengthened her to go forward in the service of her Master, when she had known the Divine Call. The times of the Lord's refreshing are not at our command. Not always the mount of spiritual elevation, but the valley of humiliation is often our needful experience, in which is learned the secret of the Lord. Her aspiration was that we may be among the blessed ones who are found doing our day's work in the day time.

A committee of two from each quarterly meeting to examine the Treasurer's account was appointed ; also a committee to collect the exercises.

Emily Canby here addressed the meeting, exhorting to a living faith in the truth of God. The revelation is progressive from time to time, as we advance in Christian experience—as we rise in elevation the view widens, and we must not confine the faith to that which we could perceive at earlier stages of experience.

An epistle from Ohio Yearly Meeting was read. This document was indicative of christian love and zeal.

Martha S. Townsend spoke feelingly in exhortation to the youth here gathered, and to those who were present from other portions of the vineyard of the Lord. She called all to fuller dedication of life to the divine service, and desired that they may be faithful in attendance at our meetings, and to every social and religious obligation. After a few moments spent in matters of routine, the meeting adjourned.

SECOND-DAY AFTERNOON. In the men's meeting, the session was opened with fervent prayer for divine guidance, by Thomas Foulke.

The review of the minutes of the morning session, and the appointment of clerks then occupied the at
