Sailors' Services - Last evening services were inaugurated at the "Sailors' Snug Harbour" by the missionary, assisted by others. At 6:30 o'clock scripture was read, and a number of favorite hyms sung at the door. An invitation was then given to all to attend the evangelistic service in the chapel on the second floor. A large number availed themselves of the privilege, among them about twenty boys and girls, whose behaviour during the hours' service was most commendable. Four captains from the vessels in port and other sailors were present.
