Shaftesbury, Sept. 22. - The attendance of the clergy and laity at the consecration of the new church of Cann St. Rumbold was numerous, and the proceedings of the day highly gratifying. An appropriate sermon was preached by the Lord Bishop of Salisbury [Edward Denison]. The collection made far exceeded what was previously expected. - Salisbury Herald.
