DEATH OF MRS. ABRAHAM JENNINGS. Still another old identity has passed away in the person of Mrs. Jennings. wife of Mr. Cook Abraham Jennings, of Bridgewater. The deceased lady had reached the ripe age of 81years, full 45 of which have been spent in and about this town. With her husband Mrs. Jennings arrived here in the early " forties," and during her long long residence in the community, has enjoyed, with her husband, the deserved reputation of a quiet, honest and respect able couple. the sunset of whose life has been one of well earned peace. The funeral will leave the residence of Mr. Samuel Jennings, the deceased's son, at 8 o'clock on Wednesday morning, and proceed to the Episcopalian Church here, leaving the latter for the South Cemetery at 2 p.m. Tnr Commission of the Presbyterian Assembly, having appointed Sunday, August 4th prox., the day on which all congregations shall be invited to contri bute to the cause of God a golden offer ing, collections will be taken up, as a special thank-offering, in the Presbyterian church, Casterton, on that day. This will be known as the "Jubilee Sabbath." The Commission appeal for aid to three classes-those who have not yet given, and therefore should seize the present opportunity; those who have given too little, and who should remember what God has done for them; and those who have given liberally, already, and who, they antiotpate, will be among the first to give now. The Commission desire to raise £60,000, of which £53,000 has been already subscribed, and consider that, as the number of communicants in the church is 16,525, while thousands more claim connection therewith, there should be no difficulty in raising the re quired sum, and they add that, while itis desirable that all who can will give gold, every gift will be welcomed.
