SUNDAY-SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOURTH BAPTIST CHURCH.--The forty-sixth anniversary of the Sunday-schools connected with the Fourth Baptist Church, Fifth and Buttonwood streets, was held in that edifice on last Sunday afternoon, at 3 o'clock. The attendance was very large, every part of the church having been filled to overflowing, long before the hour of commencing had arrived. From the annual report, read by the superintendent, John M. Evans, Esq., we learned that the schools now number 617 scholars, presided over by 48 teachers. During the revival in this church, last winter and spring, 63 were admitted to the communion of the church from these schools. The singing on the occasion was admirable, the addresses excellent, and the entire proceedings eminently creditable to all concerned. Addresses were made by A. M. Spangler, Esq., Col. E. M. Gregory, of the 91st Regiment, P. V., Rev. J. Hyatt Smith, and Rev. R. Jeffrey, pastor of the church.
