LECTURES AT THE BLENNERHASSET  CHAPEL.

A course of lectures are being delivered to crowded audiences in  the
Blennerhasset Chapel; by the now well known Mr. J. A. SMITH.

 On Sunday afternoon he gave an excellent address to the children of  the
whole village, assembled for the purpose of hearing him, with many of their  
parents, and on Sunday evening he preached a Temperance sermon to a crowded  house.

 On Monday evening the audience was somewhat smaller; but on Tuesday  evening
a fair company gathered, and on Wednesday evening the chapel was  literally
crammed.

 Mr. SMITH’s addresses have been powerful, and in every sense well  worth
hearing. We observed a marked absence of the bosh and can’t too often  indulged
in by lecturers to village gatherings.
