THY DUTY.

ET all the good thou doest to man A gift be, not a debt;

And he will more remember thee The more thou dost forget.

Do it as one who knows it not,
But rather like a vine,

That year by year brings forth its grapes,
And cares not for the wine !

A horse when he has run his race, A dog, when tracked the game,

A bee when it has honey made— Do not their deeds proclaim.

Be silent then, and like the vine,
Bring forth what is in thee;

It is thy duty to be good,
And man’s to honor thee.

R. H. STODDARD, in The Independent.

BALTIMORE YEARLY MEETING,

PROCEEDINGS OF THE SESSIONS FOR BUSINESS,

ON 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 suf. ficient reason was given. Certificates were presented for Harriet E. Rirk, 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 attention of the meeting. Levi K. Brown was chosen clerk, and Edward Stabler, Jr., assistant clerk. Nottingham Quarterly Meeting's report asks that the Yearly Meeting appropriate $250 to defray part of the debt due on that meeting house. This was referred to a special committee: Francis Thomas, and others. A committee to settle the treasurer’s account was appointed: R. P. Bentley and others. A nominating committee was set apart to propose the names of Friends to constitute the Representative Committee. These were Wm. W. Moore and others, and they are to act jointly with women Friends. The report of the Representative Committee for the past year was then read, and the matter of providing homes for Eriends attending the Yearly Meeting was taken up and discussed, and the subject was placed in the hands of a committee. The meeting then adjourned. In the evening a meeting of the Baltimore First-day School Union was Held in Lombard street meeting house. In women’s meeting, the Representatives reported that they were united in recommending the appointment of Annie F. Matthews for clerk, and Elizabeth Roser for assistant clerk. These Friends were approved. The reading of the epistle from Illinois was the next business. It was characterized by a cheerful and hopeful spirit, expressing an earnest desire for the spread of our simple and noble christian principles and testimonies. Rebecca Price spoke briefly on the work and service of the young, encouraging these to be willing to do any duty which is revealed to the mind. Harriet E. Kirk had an offering of encouragement and exhortation. She could testify that none need seek in vain for the bread of heaven. “Speak Lord for thy servant heareth !” should be the voice of the soul on entering Our religious meetings. Then there will be no complaint of dull meetings, and there will be many to testify of the deep things of God. There are works of righteousness for all to be engaged in, and in a healthy church all must work for the Master. Other short testimonies were born on the same topics. New York epistle was next read to the edification of the church, and to the comfort of some who were ready to faint by the way. Alice Robinson spoke warmly of the unity she had with the recommendations to vigilance in the upholding of testimonies to temperance in the use of all things and of abstinence from that which is liable to injure the best life. Other Friends spoke of the need of striving after that receptive and earnest spirit without which we cannot offer acceptable worship, or render available service to the Heavenly Father. The Philadelphia epistle was next read. This also was responded to with a warmth and religious earnestness which showed that many hearts were touched and cheered. Indiana Yearly Meeting's greeting was cheering and joyful in the acknowledgment of Divine favor, and stimulating in its recommendations to profound depth of exercise in all reforms that our times call for, and that are pointed out to the faithful by the spirit of truth—the comforter, yet the reprover.

IN men's meeting a proposition was presented by Eli M. Lamb on behalf of the First-day School AsSociation, which held its annual meeting the previous evening. For nearly 20 years a large number of Friends have been working in the First-day School interest in the Society of Friends. Within the limits of this Yearly Meeting, nearly all the monthly meetings have had such schools existing among them. These have reported annually, but have had no recognition nor oversight from the Yearly Meeting. Last evening, the large body of Friends gathered here expressed a desire that he should present for the consideration of the Yearly Meeting the plea of the Baltimore First-day School Association for its friendly recognition of their work. Mordecai Price thought the subject might now be referred to a committee. Hiram Blackburn favored referring it to a committee. Progress is the immutable law of our being. Other religious bodies work for their children in this way and we ought to make use of the First-day School as an educator for the good of our society. Cyrus Blackburn thought a committee might take the subject under consideration and report to our next yearly meeting. William Williams thought the committee should report to a future session of this meeting. A committee was accordingly named for this service, and directed to confer with a similar committee of Women Friends, should such be appointed. The meeting then entered upon the consideration of the First Query. Thirteen meetings for worship, three preparative meetings have failed to be attended : and those near the middle of the week have been neglected by many. Thomas Foulke, Solomon Sheppard, Jonathan K. Taylor, Eli M. Lamb and Isaac Hicks all spoke impressively on the duty of attending meetings. Several others followed in feeling testimonies which were timely and appropriate to the occasion, after which the session closed. In the women's meeting, at opening, A. R. Paul addressed the meeting at some length in regard to the inward and Spiritual baptisms known to those who walk in the pathway of true dedication. The reading of the minutes of the Representative Committee was next in order and was proceeded with. The proceedings of this body were important and interesting, but consisted largely of the care of property intrusted to its oversight and guardianship. The disposal of the Lombard street property is reported to be not yet effected. The distribution of Friends’
