BAPTISED IN THE ESK. I An extraordinary religious service was enacted in the River Esk, at Dalhousie, two miles west of Dalkeith, on Saturday evening. A revival mission has during the last month been held in the colliery district of Newbattle, where a Scotsman, Mr. Joseph Kerr, has been conducting services. On Saturday some thirty converts were baptised in the river, and! from the surrounding districts hundreds of men, women, and children flocked to witness the novel proceedings. Mr. Kerr addressed the assemblage, explaining that they were going to fulfil a Scriptural injunction. He waded twenty yards up the stream and there received the converts with a comforting. word. After the baptism they journeyed home singing joyfully.
