In no congregation in the vicinity of Derry has the work of Revival of religion been more strikingly manifested than in the Knowhead congregation. The first time that any extraordinary manifestations took place was on Sabbath, the 17th of July; and on that evening about a dozen persons were affected, and for two or three Sabbaths after that large numbers were visibly impressed. with a consciousness of their sins, and many, it is now ascertained, were silently, but savingly, converted to God as the result of these services. On Sabbath evening last, the work received a fresh impulse. There were no prostrations; but after Divine service, four little children were brought to a knowledge of Christ in the midst of the people.
