North Carolina, in 1843. He was educated at the University of North Carolina, where he graduated in 1861. Mr. Johnston served under General Stonewall Jackson in the war between the North and South, and out of one hundred and fifty who volunteered with hint only eighteen survived. He was through seven-teen of the severest battles of Virginia. After the war he studied law, which he followed for two years. He then devoted himself to the ministry, and was ordained in 1870 at Oswego, N.Y. In 18i7 he came to Canada, and was stationed first in Jarvis, where he remained until 1885, when he removed to Welland and took charge of Holy Trinity Church. IMrl Johnston is a man of more than ordinary ability. Henry Proctor, Principal of the Training College, North Bristol, England, referring to an address made by him there, says : " It was by no means of an ordinary type. It showed intellectual freshness and vigor, and rose at times to genuine eloquence." He was harried in 1871 to Alice Kate Killaly, of Ottawa, Out.
