Seamen's Bethel.--The presentation of the bell lately used at the Club-House, to the Chaplain of the Seamen's Bethel, is an act of such commendable import, that we are induced to lay before our readers the correspondence in reference thereto. The bell will be placed in the tower of Bethel Church very soon, and the basement of the house opened for worship next Sunday week:
Bell Committee of the Bell and Everett Club, of this city, it was determined to present you, for the Bethel, the bell used on our Club-House, knowing, as we do, that your society is not sectarian, and appreciating your enterprise as most worthy, and justly entitled to the attention and sympathy of all interested in this useful, but neglected class of society. The matter, by neglect of the committee, has been left to my discretion, and though there is still a considerable amount due me personally on the bell, it affords me pleasure to give it the direction indicated by the committee. It has done good service in an honorable cause, and we regard this as a worthy destination for it.
Thos. E. Ballard, Esq.-- Dear Sir:
Francis J. Boggs, Chaplain.
