THE SABBATH SCHOOL CONCERT.

SKETCH OF MARIETTA POINT SABBATH SCHOOL, OHIO.

(CONCLUDED FROM PAGB 203.)

SCHOLARS.

The whole number of scholars connected with this school since its organization, has been 331—-of which number the names of 124 (viz. 42 males and 82 females) are still on our books, though some of them attend very irregularly116 have left town (65 males and 51 females), 26 we believe attend the Universalists' school-37 attend the schools in town, and 21 do not attend anywhere. Some of them would gladly attend, if they had suitable clothing; others do not wish to come. A benevolent association has been recently formed by the female teachers and scholars, through whose efforts, we hope all the poor children, who are willing to attend, will be comfortably clothed and brought into this or some other Sabbath school. A great majority of children residing on the Point, have been connected with this school. Of those belonging to transient families, and of those who receive little or no religious instruction at home, almost all have been brought more or less under its influence, and many of

them now attend regularly on the preached word. It has been our great object to reach this important class of our population, and our success has exceeded our expectations. It is from this class we have had many of our best and most promising scholars, and their parents are generally our warmest friends. We believe they justly appreciate what has been done for their children, and rejoice in the blessings that have been conferred on them. There are, however, large numbers within the limits of this city, who have not yet been brought within the reach of Sabbath school influence, and many of those who do attend are so irregular in their attendance, as to derive but little benefit from the instructions of the schools. We have taken considerable pains to get correct information on this subject, and we have no doubt there are now more than two hundred children in this city, of a suitable age to attend, who are not connected with any evangelical Sabbath school, and who receive little or no religious instruction. Two scholars, who were members of the first class, who attended on the day the school was opened, are now members of it, in regular attendance, and one has been absent but twice in nearly three years, and then from unavoidable necessity.

There have united with different evangelical churches from this school, 17 scholars and 2 teachers. There are some sew who give good evidence of piety, who have not yet made a profession. Several of those who have joined the church, regard the school as the main instrument in their conversion.

A great and beneficial change has been evidently made since the opening of this school, in the moral character of the youth on “ The Point,” which we believe is seen and felt by all who are acquainted with this part of the town. We do not presume to claim the whole credit of this change ; but we believe the influence exerted by this school, and that of our Baptist brethren, has had a very important agency in producing it. These schools have been conducted in perfect
