There was an unusually large number of students and visitors present at vespers last evening. After Dr. F. G. Peabody made the introductory prayer, the cxxxviii. Psalm was read by the congregation. Dr. Phillips Brooks spoke very feelingly of the incident of Christ in the wilderness. He said it was at this time that the Saviour of men first recognized in himself that inherent power of resisting evil which He observed other men did not possess. The speaker cautioned his hearers to beware of turning the powers they did possess to base ends, but to devote them to the development of their characters. The music was fully up to its usual standard of excellence. The choir rendered the following selections: "The King of Love," by Dvkes; "I will Sing of Thy Power," by Sullivan, and Baraby's "Nunc Dimittis."
