Young ladies' Sewing Circle.
--The young ladies of Grace St. Baptist Church organized, a little more than a year ago, themselves into a Sewing Circle, in order to raise funds for religious purposes.
They raised some $500 the first year, and appropriated it to the support of a Colporteur in this city, whose inborn were, to some extent, instrumental in the establishment of the Clay Street
This year they are supporting a Colporteur (Rev. R. Lewis
) in Wythe
and Tazewell counties
. Rev. Mr. Lewis
reports having visited, during the past month, 374 families, with 84 of whom he prayed, distributed $31 worth of books, and delivered five sermons.
The efforts of the ladies to send the Gospel to the destitute are very praise worthy.
