The eriod for active campaigning seems to

But it is not oug

We believe that our people have made up their
minds to a severe trial of their endfxrance than
they have yet experienced. They expect the
enemy to attack their seaports with all the nava
and military power they can profitablyuse--they
are not certain but that these cities, assailed by
formidable naval armaments, will fall, and that
thereby more of our territory may be overrun by
those plundermg murderous her so ages

Indeed, they are rather apathetic. They are not
much inclined to hurry preparations, or to make
many sacrifices of personal ease that they may
be hurried. If slaves are wanted to work upon
the fortifications, they may perhaps be had, when
there is no more for them to do in the cotton
field. And so in other things. Indeed, we
Southern people never can get into a hurry
about any thing, unless it is running away from
yellow fever or smallpox, or charging a Yankee
battery. So our people take very calmly all the
preparations making for invading our territory
through our seaports; and they also have made
up their mind that these may fall-but they do
not imagine that ev6n such an event will argue
that Abraham Lincoln has conquered the
South. The people of these States are not to be
conquered. Driven from their borders, they will
fall back to, central positions and hold them
againstthe enemy---or when unable to leave
their homes, the oppressor who invades those
homes may exult that he has bound, not con-
quered, them.
But may it not be better to suppose the cam-
paign not ended; and to endeavor to provide
against any such calamity as the invasion of our
homes? Is it not far better that we meet our
enemy at the threshold, when he has first pene.
treated our territory, and there defend our families
and our liberties, rather than wait till he has
established himself securely oilour soil? Most
undoubtedly. We should therefore be ready at
the first call from our leaders to precipitate the
strength of the entire population ulion the
invaders, and sweep them from the face of the
earth. This is the sort Bf intervention that will
most certainly liecure peace.
What is the winter to bring forth ? Ah I who
can tell! We are in the hands of God where it
is safest to be, if we will but do our duty. If
not, He may prove to us "a consuming fire."
For one, we believe that we ought to come to
Him with thanksgiving and supplication, and
full assurance of His presenterr-amr-asnveili-nle*

The Advocate says that Bishop Early does not
recognize thisas the regular session of the Con-
ference, but expects still to hold a meeting of
that body. The appointments are not published.

We find that the Southern Preabyterian of Inst
week has anticipated a purpose we entertained*
of asking thatin all congregations of worshippers
when prayer is made for the country, special
petition should be offered for.the protection of
our sea-port cities from the assaults of the
enemy. Our contemporary asks all to pray-
and the prayer may be offered in the closet
and at the family altar, so well as in the
sanctuary. We remember with great satisfoo.
tion, that last year when the enemy's gun-boats
first got above Fort Pulaski and cut off its
communication with Savannab, and that city
seemed seriously threatened, a day of special
prayer was appointed and observed there and
in Augusta and Charleston for its protection.
And it yetstands-may we not justly chim, a
monum nt o he power of prayer to prevail
we so assert who can gainsay it ?
We are believers in prayer. Let us pray in
faith. The Prsebyterian well says :
"There is another reason why we are very

spoken so loftily, and so forgetfully of their
dependence on the Almighty respecting why
they mean to do at Charleston, that we have

The editor adds that "the Conference sympa-

readers could have heard him pronounce that

The Ohio Conference was held in eaville,
Ohio. Bishop Morris introduced its proceedings
with the following remarks:
"Brethren,-We have cause for humiliation
and cause for gratitude. A few weeks a o, it
seemed probable tbit it would be very didcult,
if not impossible, to hold our Anmtal Conference,
on account of the draft. But we acted on the

But, contrary to expectation, we are b y to

are, I hope they will step into the ranks and

The most remarkable of all is the speech of
Gov. Andrew, of Massachusetts, at the Camp
meeting in Martha's Vineyard, Aug. 10th. This
address was made, it seems, upon the expressed
wish of the Governor to speak, and upon the
invitation of the Presiding Elder. It was made
in the hearing of a crowd of many thousands.
It speaks a whole volume at once, when we
state that this political war speech was made
on the Sabbath day!! Its report occupies more
than three columns of the fine print in a large
newspaper. It is highlyeulogized by the Editor
of Zion's Herald.
The Governor concludes thus: "And, now,
friends and brethren, there is a little practical
application to be made. We have some recruit-
ing officers upon this ground, and I am the
chiefof that hand," etc., etc., etc.

united with him-smong the communients of

David did not know anything about him, yet the
Spirit who inspired David knew all about him,
and caused the beautiful Psalm to be written for
him just as if neither David nor any one else in
the world had any interest in it. Accordingly,
just as he was passing through the valley and
shadow of death, he lifted up his eyes, and ex.

pathos. They esme in the carriage, and yith

invested-the whole of his fortune, and all their

The falsehood of this statement was patent.

the narrative was Anished, however another
Yankee responded: "And so they killed Zolli.

keeper replied: "Yes," and I thought of some
apostrophes that wer) addressed to the Jews
eighteen years ago.
All the Yankee ofileers on the ears seemed
to be doing their best to assume the character
or rather the manners, of Southern gentlemen.
I give them credit for this, for it showed they
had some appruistion of what was right and.
beautithl when it is presented before their eyes.
I could not more, but that several were on their
feet to do me service, and I could but contrast
the scene with what I had witnessed a few years
ago, when I had travelled without the guardian,

among hundreds of men had received not the
slightest courtesy, but from one-and he was
the local Editor of the New York Tribune. I
have since prayed for his conversion.

very gleefully to an old lady, the death of several

I did not enjoy it. That was also natural. While
they were speaking, my little daughter asked
for a drink. The .soldier was immediately on

She had no note but to repeat herewn name,
and she oried, *phebe,' 'phebe,' as if glad to get

would try my skill upon old phebe. She stood
mpon apost near the spot where she was to build
her nest, and looked at me with all confidence,
as much as to say, 'You won't hurt me.' I found
a nice stout, and poising my arm, I threw it
with my utmost skill. It struck poor phebe on

I said nothing to the Hamiltons about it. But
through a grand child they found it out; and
though they never said a word to me about it;
I knew that they mourned for the bird, and
were deeply grieved at my cruelty. I could
never look them in the face afterwards as I did
before. Oh, that I had told them how sorry I

The boys thanked the aged man, dropped
their stones, and the cat bird had no more
trouble from them.
