Appleton Chapel.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"Hail to the Lord's Anointed," Wesley

"The Sorrows of Death," Mendelssohn

"I will mention," Sullivan

The chapel was so crowded at vespers yesterday that many had to stand during the entire service. Rev. F. G. Peabody read the 85th Psalm. The beautiful tenor solo from Mendelssohn's "Hymn of Praise," sung by Mr. Ricketson, then followed. Rev. Dr. Gordon read from the twelfth chapter of the Epistle to the Hebrews, and on this based his address, on "The Irremediableness of Sin." However good repentance may be, it can never undo the past. Every act remains as a record. How deeply soever we may regret squandered riches, overtasked strength, neglected opportunities, as Esau regretted his pledged birthright and Paul his misdirected zeal. yet the objects of our regret remain as facts. But repentance can be of use here. It may raise up in our souls such a repugnance to these inexorable evil actions of ours, that in this very repugnance the power of God will act most mightily. Could we realize that in each act of disloyalty, impurity and insincerity we were shaping irrevocably the past, our conduct would be different.
