FEAB. A REBKLLiOiN  Advices were received   by the   Kiu-  presa   of Japan   that  the rising    m  iviangsi   'und   Chelating provinces    is  becoming   a  grave  movement,      and  many believe the rising will   assume  similar proportions   to  tbe    Taipuag  rebellion.    Hsinsherighsoia,   Cbekaugii,  a large walled city,  was captured by  the  rebels and  looted,    and  a garr -  eon of   5,000 wras left   to prepare the  city' to  withstand a  seige  of miper.  ial troops.   Seveial   corps of   imperial    troops      have    been  despatched.  Magistrate   Shem of    Harcheng   was  put to death,   being .tortured in   re  vonge   for having summarily  beheaded  a captured, rebel   leader.     It  was  this act   which caused the rebels .to  gather     at    Sungchien    to       attack  the city.    The Roman Catholic    and  Protestant    churches    were   destroyed,    and   although    the native    pastors   escaped, six   convei ts weic mnr  dci-ed,      Large    bodies    of   disbanded  soldiers   are affiliated   with  thc    rebels.  __ o .���������  "RIDDLED WITH  DULT.ETS  SISViMOIjI!.

The  most    famous  prayer" meeting  e\er    convened    in this Country was  held in  the summer of 1800 on     the  grounds,of a  farmer adjacent to Williams college,   Williamstown,   Mass.,  says Leslie's Weekly-    it was bel;il ,J}'  five students.     They  were    querying  wlmt they    could do for  Lhe   benefit  of mankind.     A   Ihiindcrstorm occurred, and    they look refuge under    a  ha1.-'.tack and continued-the   meeljn^.

But  those students    originated the     foreign    missionary   movement in    this  coi.uliy for the benefit of all   lands  and peoples.      Subsequently Williams  college acquired  the propcity, named  it Mission park and erected a monument commemorative    of the    great  result   ^    It    consists    ol a shaft ot  granite'twelve feet in height, bearing  a globe three feet in diametw,   repr  resent mi; the  woild.

The Dominion     gov-  eiiunent's    pari  in the affair    arose  from the  fact.     that lhc lands   were  not origfinally conveyed direct to the  E.   &' N.

He " secured the pass-'uigi'- 'of' a measure,  which, to all intfsn.ts and .purposes ex-1  propiiatod the lani'ls in question, and  handed them o-.er'Ui the settlers.  "Divide'" cried one member of ~" the  house, on an occasion twhich has Le-  rome historis. "Yes,..divide," cried  the present lieutcnant-igoverinor ^of 1-hej. j-;  province, who was then a member  of the house. "It is a -bill to divide on."  Among    other things  which     were  provided by lhis    measure was tliat  the, government should take any steps  necessaiy    to make good its     ciown  grants    in law,-and .bear   practically  all  the evpenses of litigation, on   behalf  of the  set-tiers.     The first   gun  was   fired n.hout two jeais ago, when,  crown grants were issued to     James  McGregor  and William Ilog-gan.  .T-is.
