New Church Building at Mount Vernon

The members of the M.E. Church at Mt. Vernon, have just completed a
large and sub-stantial house of worship.  It was dedicated last Sunday
morning, the Rev. Mr. Sabin, of Locust Street Church, Evansville,
officiating by invitation.  This edifice is a two story brick, with a large
lecture room in the basement story.  It cost $5,500.  The congregation
was $600 in debt, but money enough was raised at the dedication to
pay off this.  The M.E. Church at Mt. Vernon appears to be in a
flourishing condition.  The congregation have now a large, substantial
and roomy edifice, such as they have long needed.

There has been a revival in the M.E. Church of this city.  About twenty
persons have within the last two or three weeks united themselves to
the church, and twenty-five have made profession of religion.  The
meetings will be ressumed this evening at the Locust Street Church,
they having been interrupted by the absence of Mr. Sabin.
