The Prodigal Son is an old boy and there j The Presbytery held its semi-annual tany of him ! The musical composi- j meeting at Port Henry commencing June 1883, at 2:30 p. M. o his memory is very modern, having een written in 1868, by Sir Arthur Sulli- an, in no Hense one of the old authors, it an English composer of celebrity. With ie highest respect for his fame and genius, ie thought mil crowd itself upon us that Er. Sullivan has hardly done the boy jus- ce ! Probably it is all our fault, but it s seem as though one of the most touch- ig narratives of the Scriptures might have m clothed in more impressive music and athetic melody. We are perfectly willing ur readers shall attribute all this to our ullness of comprehension. We concede lat the production contains some very no passages, and in truth we must dd that no chorus can do it justice with- ut a good full orchestra to back it up. Of the rendering of this Oratorio by the 'hilharmonic Society, of Plattsburgh, and ae Choral Union of Keeseville, we can peak with a good degree of enthusiasm, 'he chorus of nearly one hundred was a plendid body of singers, and we would ke to hear them, in a larger hall, sing \The Ireation,\ or some of those old Oratorios hat remind one of \Thunder all around ie skies !\ Laying aside all sectional pride, r e believe that as a chorus they could bring it \Elijah\ as forcibly as did the Vermont eterans last season at the Howard Opera louse. The soloists acquitted themselves well. r. Velsey was in fine voice and did admi- rably. Mrs. Stafford, always reliable in :horus work, did herself much credit as a iontralto soloist, carrying the part assign- id to Mrs. Baber, who was not present. . Geo. D. Adams, of Keeseville, bari- one, had the most difficult solo, and show- sd much skill in its execution. Miss Tuffts, >f Keeseville, has a remarkably sweet voice, id rendered her solo finely. Much en- tusiasm was shown on the appearance of iur young musical artist, Miss Mead, and ter principal solo, given with fine effect, ras persistently encored. The quartette iy MiBS Darling, Mrs. Ned Baker, Mr. Lee Rockwell, and Rev. Joseph Gamble, was remarkable for its perfect chord and melo- dy, and we think all with \music in their louls\ could have enjoyed more of the same :ind. In conclusion, let us say that the Phil- Larmonic and Choral Societies are doing a ;ood work. They are taking up the high- sst order and most difficult music of the )resent and former centuries, the product if the musical genius of the ages, and fa- .iliarizing it to the public mind. The lommon hearer, particularly an editor, may lot always be able to grasp the sublimest conceptions of those grand musical pro- ductions; but it is surprising how rapidly a taste will develop itself, and in this re- ;ard we think Plattsburgh has good mate- rial to work upon. The President and several representatives >f the Burlington Philharmonic Society lonored the occasion with their presence, and expressed themselves surprised at the chorus work, with no other than a piano accompaniment. The Burlington society now have the same Oratorio under practice, to be brought out in the fall, and no doubt there will be a good representation from Plattsburgh and Keeseville in the chorus, -e understand the Burlington singers be pleased with their presence. Who knows but ^hese neighborly relations may some day result in a Champlain Valley Musical Association that shall embrace )th sides of the lake ! As we contemplate enterprises of this kind, how the necessity for an opera house in Platteburgh becomes more and more im- portant ! Surely, the day cannot be far dis- tant when in some way this want will be Rev. Thornton A. Mills, of Champlain, was elected Moderator. Rev. C. N. Thomas, of Port Henry, Tem- porary Clerk, vras excused from service, and Rev. H. H. Lipes, of Mineville, ap- pointed in his place. The afternoon was devoted to business. In the evening the retiring Moderator, Rev. C. S. Richardson, of Malone, preached from Zech. 14: 20. \Holiness to tho Lord.\' After sermon, the Lord's Supper was ad- ministered; Rev. Cyrenus Ransom, Chap- plain at Clinton Prison, administered the bread, and Rev. Augustus Frederick, of Essex, the cup. The meeting was then addressed by Miss Alice M. Robertson, of the \Creek mis- sion,\ Indian Territory, representing the religious wants of these Indians, and their claims for aid, and for the progress of Christians. A collection was taken to aid in building a school house in the mission with which Miss Robertson is connected. Amount of collection over $40. Presbytery adjourned till Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock. After thirty minutes of devotional exer- cises on Wednesday morning, Presbytery proceeded to business till 11 o'clock. \Presbyterial Sunday School Institute\ was then held in accordance with the pro- gramme published last week, excepting that Mr. E. P. Morse, of Essex, filled the place assigned to Joseph F. Flint. After institute exercises Presbytery adjourned. THE WOMEN'S HOME AND FOREIGN MISSIONARY SOCIETY. The \Women's Home and Foreign Mis- sionary Society of the Presbytery of Champlain\ held its annual meeting at Port Henry, June 19, 1883.

The three had gone out in a sailboat on the Richelieu river and had reached a point half way be- tween St. Johns and St. Athanaee when the wind began to blow, and the sail being badly managed the boat soon capsized, throwing the three into the water.
