The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Rev. Dr. Chalmers' worshippers in Glasgow


IT is well known that the genius and eloquence of this popular clergyman, during his ministry in Glasgow, attracted immense crowds to his church, and the feeling of disappointment when a stranger entered the pulpit was but too visible for anyone to mistake it.

On one occasion the Rev. Dr. Islay having made an exchange with Dr. Chalmers, was, on entering the pulpit, so struck, annoyed, and irritated with the reluctant advance of the assembling auditory, and the quick retreat of many from the pews, that he stood up, and addressing the congregation, said:

"We will not begin the public worship of God till the chaff blows off."

We need not say that these words had the desired effect, and that the audience became stationary under this severe rebuke.
