[Salvation Army]

In the case in which some members of the Salvation Army were sentenced to a month's hard labour for persisting in a procession at Whitchurch, the Court of Queen's Bench has quashed the conviction and ordered the magistrates to pay all the expenses of the present application.—On Monday the Salvation Army held three meetings at St. James's Hall. In the morning Mrs. Booth replied to the criticisms which had been passed upon the movement; the afternoon was devoted to the purposes of a holiness meeting; and in the evening there was a service preparatory to the dispatch of missionaries to India.
