p.3 We are happy to report that the Bethel Society, after some considerable exertion, has obtained a house for a Sailor's Home, and is now in course of fitting it up for that purpose. The establishment is to be a benevolent institution, but not as a gratuitous charity. It is expected that those who reside at the house will, as a general thing, pay their board; while the stranger, the worthy objects of charity, the destitute and shipwrecked mariner, will meet with a welcome within its doors, and share freely in its hospitality.
