THE DEDICATION AT KNIGHT'S CAMPGROUND.
The dedication of the new church at Knight’s Camp-ground on the Rich Valley Circuit, brought together a great multitude. They came in from the county and all the, neighboring towns —Shelbyville, Cornersville, Petersburg, Lynchburg, and others. It is the handsomest country church I have seen. Paid for, like all the churches that are built under the administration of Rev. S. M. Parks. A “deck-clearing” collection was taken, which pays their assessment for Foreign Missions, and more.
A few yards from the new church stands the old one where the Rev. Adam S. Riggs preached his first sermon. In an adjoining neighborhood he preached his last. An old disciple still living heard both discourses. Every member of the Riggs’ family belongs to the Church. Near the camp-ground is an ancient homestead where all the Hughes's were born and reared — John F. and William H., and the others. I am much indebted to Adam S. Riggs, Jr., for many attentions.-- R. A. YOUNG.

Who was “Bonnie ANNIE LAURIE?” Nearly everybody has sung, or heard sung, the beautiful ballad of “ANNIE LAURIE.” ANNIE LAURIE was no myth. Nearly two hundred years ago, Sir ROBERT LAURIE, of Maxwellton, of Dumfriesshire, Scotland, quaintly wrote in his family register these words: “At the pleasure of the Almighty God, my daughter, ANNIE LAURIE was born on the 16th day of December, 1682, about six o'clock in the morning, and was baptized by Mr. GEORGE HUNTER, of Glencairne.” ANNIE’S mother was named JEAN RIDDLE, to whom Sir ROBERT was married “upon the 27th day of July, 1674, at the Tron Kirk, of Edinburgh, by Mr. ANNANE,” as was also recorded by her father himself. Posterity owes to Mr. WM DOUGLAS, of Fingland, in Kirkcudbrightshire (who wooed but did not win the capricious ANNIE), the song of “Bonnie ANNIE LAURIE,” wherein he celebrated the beauty and transcendent perfection of the maid of Maxwellton.
