considers it desirable to reconsider the basis of their operations, with the view of practising and advocating abstinence from all intoxicating drinks, in addition to distilled liquors.

Anchor BAND OF HOPE, CAMBERWELL.-A meeting of rather more than ordinary interest was held on Monday, Nov. 9, at Waterloo street School-room, Invitations had previously been given to above one hundred young people connected with the society, or having been once members of it, their eligibility generally consisting in being or having been in place, and thus having entered, more or less, into the temptations incidental to this position. A goodly number of these, therefore, assembled on the appointed evening, and, after having been regaled with tea and its usual accompaniments, an interesting meeting was held, which was addressed first in a suitable manner by the Rev. Mr. Rowe, afterwards at some length by Mr. Caines, and Mr. Samuel Steele, from the United Kingdom Band of Hope Union. The speeches were interspersed with songs, and a few recitations were also given, which helped to enliven the proceedings. The Committee sincerely hope that this meeting may have strengthened the members in their resolution of total abstinence, and that it may also induce those who had not remained firm 10 it to re-consider the matter, and again-join the ranks of so glorious a cause, NOTTINGHAM SUNDAY SCHOOL BAND OF HOPE ASSOCIATION.

1.-The fourth annual meeting was held in the Mechanics' Hall, on Nov. 2. The object of the association is to assist the teachers of Sunday Schools in encouraging the young in the principle and practice of abstinence from intoxicating drinks and tobacco.

The audience were apparently highly pleased with the cause and its advocates, and concluded with a vote of thanks to the Chairman.Nottingham Daily Express.

Bridport Band of Hope.—Mr. S. Insull gave a lecture in the School-room connected with the Independent Chapel, on Friday Evening, November 13th, to a large audience, composed principally of young people. The subject was “ Home, what it was, and what it became," shewing the blessings of Temperance; a series of dissolving views were exhibited to illustrate the lecture, which was highly interesting to those present. Mr. Insull agreeably diversified the entertainment by singing several melodies. The comınittee of the Band of Hope are worthy of hearty commendation, for providing for the young people so excellent in every respect an entertainment, and we hope others of a similar character will follow in the coming winter months.

St. George's Band OF HOPE, BRANDON HILL, BRISTOL.-Miss E. S. Price, writes :-Again have we had the pleasure of receiving Mr. F. Smith anongst us, with his interesting dissolving views. On November 12th, he gave us two exhibitions ; the first at half-past five, especially for the young, was the series, “ Lights of the World," and again at eight, those entitled, “ London, Past and Present,” particularly for the profit and pleasure of the parents and friends of the Band of Hope children, The adults are not able to determine which they admired the most of the views, but we dare say Mr. Smith with his knowledge of children's nature, will not be surprised to hear that the juveniles pronounce emphatically for “ Betty and the Bear," or for one or other of his comic pictures. The acclamations and clapping of the young people, on first sight of Mr. Smith, evinced that he was recognised as a welcome old friend. And so he is ; for the last three years, he has paid us a yearly visit, which visit is always regarded by superintendent and children as an epoch in their Band of Hope annals.' Mr. Smith's descriptive lectures were much liked, abounding as they did, in pleasant illustrations, and little bits of moral, and christian 'sentiment takingly deali out. Our Band of Hope is now iwo years and a half old, has grown in numbers and popularity, and is now become a recognised institution in “our parish.” Since January of the present year, 160 members have joined ; and by Cristmas will have paid into the Penny Bauk in connexion with it, upwards of £40. Many of our little ones have proved in their neighbourhood, youny Temperance missionaries ; and those interested in them trust and pray, that from amongst thein inay rise a band of sober, godly, christian men and women, whose lives may adorn the doctrine of their God and Saviour, in all things.
