Michigan

By Rev. S. N. Griffith

It was soon discovered that his mind was almost wholly occupied with the subject of Universalism, against which he had composed a long, peculiar poem which, though destitute of any great literary merit, was nevertheless full of brilliant hits upon the weakness of that system of religious belief (if it be called religious). He sought the privilege of the presiding elder to deliver this poem before the congregation; this was refused him. On Monday, however, the Rev. Jas. F. Davidson was temporarily absent, and the brother in charge gave the poet an opportunity to deliver his production; the effect was tremendous ; it is said to have nearly destroyed Universalism as an organized „ form of religious belief in the whole region affected by the camp-meeting. Monday afternoon Ephraim Burdick and Mr. Patris went forward for prayers, and a prayer-meeting of unusual interest was held.
