A tea meeting was held m the evening which was fairly well attended. * After tea, dispensed by ladies of the congregation, Mr G. W. Leadley took the chair, and m his introductory address spoke afc length on several of the distinctive features of Methodism. Among these were—connexionalisin, progressiveness, doctrinal teaching tending to the development of Christian manhood. Rev. J. N. Buttle gave a racy and interesting sketch of the history of the Church m Ashburton. county. Rev. Mr Luxford dealt m an. attractive way with the indebtedness of the colony to the Christian fathers. Mr Harding gave a really interesting and instructive address on the hymnology of the Church, pointing out the indebtedness of Protestantism to the Wesley's for opening the door of German Sacred music to English singers. Mr Morley, who was the last speaker, held the audience for half an hour with a racy historical address, and urged upon all Wesleyans the duty, of giving to the cause a thank-offering on the Jubilee. Rer Mr Buttle announced that m the circuit £149 m all had been collected or promised. Rev Mr Gray moved the usual votes of thanks. During the evening the Choir sang several pieces, amongst which perhaps the best rendered, certainly the best selection, was the "Kyrie" from Mozart's Twelfth Mass.
