I employ the epithet ··successful," because several previous failures had apparently rendered ell effort* of a like .kind perfectly hope. less. Indeed, the meridian, at that period, period, was most uncongenial to religious enterprise. . Tl»«j couniry, bordering- on the S»b tie, had been occupied, rather than settled, by a c ass of ad venture re almost almost as wild as the savages whom; they had scarcely expelled, and the beasts of prey which still disputed their domain of primeval'forests. Professional gamblers, refugees from the jtiil, absconded'debtors, outlaws from every land, forgeis of false coin, thieves, robbers, murderers, interspersed interspersed among a race of uneducated bun ten and herdsmen, mads up the grange social miscellany ; without cou/is'oir prisons prisons or churches or schools,' or even the shadow of civil authority or subordination--a subordination--a sort of municipal pandemonium, \vhero fierce, pmsion eut enthroned, waving waving its bloody sceptre, the naked bowje k n i f e !

But this hypothesis was negatived by the statement statement of Peter Brinson, proprietor of the Double Spring Grove, who informed al enquirers that he had been employed am paid by a stranger calling himself a iVl.eth odist missionary, to provide an ample bar becut at the period and place advertised "Bui ihe liquor--the belter liquor--art you to furnish the liquor too?" was ih invariable question of each visitor. ··The missionary said he vvould atlcn to that himself," replied Brinspn '·He must bu n precious originaJ,'* was the general rejoinder.
