and removal of so many members, in late years, the Churches are still well attended, and the congregations attentive to the administrations of the word and sacraments. The services of the Rector are sought after to an extent far beyond his ability or that of any individual to supply. Private communions in sick chambers, have become much more frequent, and many persons, not members of the Church, in various directions, seem disposed to avail themselves of her holy services. At no period of his ministry have his duties been more numerous or more pressing than during the past year. Under these circumstances, he has looked with unmingled satisfaction upon a movement in a part of his parish to erect a new Church and organize a new Parish; and he hopes the day is not far distant when a separation will take place between the two parishes now under his charge, and each be provided with a minister of its own.

Church of the Ascension, Washington City. Since his last report, the Rector has had the satisfaction of witnessing some additional evidences of his usefulness in this Parish. At every celebration of the Eucharist, some have been added to the Church, of such we trust, “as shall be saved." He is happy also, to see among those committed to his charge, an increased attention to the means of grace-attachment to the distinctive principles of the Church, and a spirit of unostentatious piety. The contributions of this congregation, to the various institutions of the Church, have been as large as could be reasonably expected from so young a congregation. Baptisms,
