Sabbath April 28

Mr. Andrews preached a sermon for the times from the text, "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven  --  A time of war", Eccl.3:1, and part of 8th verse -- a truly patriotic discourse.  S. S. Spencer of Virginia was over & heard it.  Western Virginia has been thought loyal to the government, but Wm. doubts whether they will stand firm.  He says the Union men are too few and will not fight.  The ordinance of secession is to be submitted to a vote of the people May 28th.  Our former minister Rev. W. A. Smith, who died at Walnut Hills on the 26th instant was buried in that place today.  He was a gentlemanly amiable, and good man, much beloved by his people where ever he labored.
