TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY.

The Twentieth Anniversary of the American Unitarian Association was celebrated on Tuesday evening, May 27th, 1844. The meeting for business was in the Berry Street Vestry, at nine o'clock, A. M., Hon. StePHEN FAIRBANKs in the chair. Prayers were offered by Rev. Frederick A. Farley, of Brooklyn, N. Y.

An amendment to the 5th Article of the Constitution, proposed by Rev. Mr. Farley at the last Annual Meeting, came up for consideration; and after a full discussion, was amended, and unanimously adopted. It requires the addition of three to the Board of Directors, two of whom at least shall be laymen.

A Resolution, offered by Rev. Mr. Lothrop, as a substitute for some propositions presented by Rev. Dr. Gannett, authorizing and instructing the Executive Committee to appoint a travelling Agent, with a suitable salary, was passed.

On motion of Mr. Geo. G. Channing, a vote was passed, requesting the Executive Committee, should they think it expedient, to procure an Act of Incorporation for the Association, at the next session of the Legislature.

Rev. F. A. Farley, Dummer R. Chapman, Esq., Rev. Samuel Barrett, and Hon. Albert Fearing were appointed a Committee to nominate the Officers for the ensuing year.

The Association then adjourned.

The meeting for the choice of Officers was held in the same place, at half past six o'clock, P. M.

The Treasurer's Report was read and accepted.
