December 4, 1862,

.instead of hearing the accustomed, "Walk out
ladies," we were stunned by a boy bawling at
the top of his voice, "Drive to the military
prison !" A young gentleman from Harrods-
burg, who was also a prisoner, turned to one.of
my daughters and said, Miss L. will you have
'hot beefsteak for breakfast in the Mforning ?"
S We drove to the Military Prison, where we
- were introduced to Maj. Harney, who seemed
to consider our coming more surprising than
agreeable. He said to us in the tone of "one
S, ho had been ,,osie..1 neirlv to death." "La-

Galt House. There we were told that a supper
should be ordered for us, and two rooms. We
were not hungry, but considering that a few
items more of expense might break the United
States, We thought we would try the experiment
and take supper. Uncle Sam, however, bore
the charge's, so rcr, braely. Whsthber the bill

somewhat to our surprise, a Capt. 'Dillard
walked up to us, and informed us that in con-
sequence of a recent order we could not stay at
the Gait House, but that if wi would follow him
he would conduct us to another place-whether
that place was the dungeons of the1 Inquisition,
;- oi to the underground railroad to be spirited
awafa upr.on it, we could not decide. Neverthe-
less we followed him, guarded by six men with
gunsaand bayonets. As we walked along the

us; we belong toa country, of whosegovernment,

Conference draws near. In a few days the
brethren will greet each other again, after the
vicissitudes of another year. It richly compen-
sates a true hearted Methodist preacher for all
the trials and difficulties of a year's itinerancy,
to mingle for a week amongst those who are of
the same mind, and heart, and purpose, It
would be a very serious obstacle me h;hc would
prevent your corre'.-p.neut goingg up to Con-
ference." I hbae heard of le deOLatlh f but one
of our preachers this year. T. J. Koger will not
again meet in Conference with us. Few of our
t umber would be more mi..ed. Averypeculiar
man in appearance, and a peculiarly true and

In this region all has been quiet and prosper-
ous this year. An abundance of food.for man
and beast has been made, end the people seem
to have any quantity of money. Indeed, money
making was never easier. All a man has to do
when he wants it, is to go to a printing office
and have some printed. A few cowhides or a
barrel, of cider will do as a basis of issue. In
taking up Missionary and Conference collections,
it is astonishing how many different issues are
found, even in the "back country." They may
be quickly exchanged for Confederate notes,
however; so these causes may not suffer if the
preachers are particular. I have endeavored to
give proper emphasis to the importance of our
Church meeting fully the claims upon the Con-
ference fund, and a little better yield has resul-
ted. It is to be regretted that a sure method is
not adopted to meet these claims. The Louis-
iana Conference is the only one that has done
it, thus far. -
The history of the Church in this regard is
most mortifying and disgraceful. As rich a
Church as ours meeting a little over half of a
claim so slender, and yet,'so sacred I
It is now apprehended by many intelligent
men, that a strong effort at reconstruction will
be made by the Democratic party of the North,
within a.short time. If'there is any disposition
to meet favorably such an effort, by any at the
-South, it has not manifested itself.
If the South goes back, it will be at a sacrifice
of all that her true statesmen have contended
for, aside from Slavery-for the negro question
was not the cause, but the occasion of the dissolu-
tion 01 the old government. ...
M,:-i sincerely and devoutly should we now
pray: Rord, lead us not into temptation-
deliver us from evil." May God raise up states-
men competent to solve the grave, political pro-
blems which it were well to solve in advance of
their practical .settlement.
Gen. Bragg's Kentucky campaign is the
theme of every tongue, and of every pen. What
a host of military geniuses-strategists-we
have, at home. Gen. Bragg has shown himself a
patriot-bold, fearless, independent, constant,
We cannot tell yet whether his apparent mis-
takes may not have been anything else. Of one
thing we feel sure. Had his army been shatter-
ed by a victory over Buell, a la Sharpsburg,
Rosencrantz with reinforcements could-Van
Dorn's army brippled-have come along down
into the Gulf States ad libertim. Bragg's army,
in good trim, where it is, is better than Bragg's
army half destroyed-the remnant with tattered
flags victorious.
From another field of labor, Mr. Editor, I hope
to drop you a few lines of correspondence during
the next Conference year. During the past two

IoN CIRCUIT, LA. Coxy.-The Rev. R. Parvin
writes: We have just closed an interesting
camp meeting on Boeuff River, FranklinParish,
La. Sixty five accessions, colored and white,-
fifteen subscribers for the Advocate, their names
down, and money paid in, a fcw..sintutes. All
our people want to know over here is, whether
they can get it or not. The Lord is doing great
things for us in North Louisiana. The people
love camp meeting, and I hope they will keep
it up. Our preachers preached with power to
the hearts and consciences of the people. The
audience large and attentive. All, went on in
harmony, and I hope its benefit will be felt
many days to come. You will please tell that
brother of the La. Conference, who has inquired
of you when and where the La. Conference
meets, that it meets in Bastrop, Morehouse
Parish, 11th Dec., 1862. From what I can learn
from various sources, the preachers will be there,
(the most of them), expecting to attend to the
regular business of the Conference. One of our
old preachers, who has been preaching long in
this country, has gone to his reward-(brother
Moses Davis.) His bereaved family has our
sympathies and prayers.

Wilson writes: I am now closing my labors on
this circuit. Upon the whole, it has been a
very pleasant year. We have had no general
revival of religion; yet some souls have been
converted to God. Some interesting meetings
have been held, especially one at Pleasant
Grove, which continued five days. Our last
quarterly meeting was held at the same place-
a pretty good 'meeting. About thirty have
joined on probation. One young man has been
licensed to preach, and recommended to the
Annual Conference. The missionary collection
on this circuit is larger than formerly-being
$70. My Conference collection is also.good. I
am far behind in quarterage ; but then I reckon
I'll get enough to make "tongue and buckle
meet." This is a pleasant country, and the
people are kind. I leave the circuit, hoping a
good preacher may be sent to labor on this work
for 1862.

REVIVAL TN TuE ARMgx.-A surgeon in the Con-
federate Army of thb Potoinac, whose letter to a
friend in this city is nowhefore us, says :,"Under
"*ev. Dr. Stiles and thea regimental chaplains, a
religious revival has been going on in Jackson's
corps for several weeks, and there has been a
large number of conversions. I saw the Doctor
a few minutes yesterday morning, as our army
was leaving camp. He travels in a topsulky,
and seems to stand camp life very well."--A
chaplain states that there have been seventy
cases of hopeful conversion in the 37th North
Carolina Regiment, since it came to Virginia,
and that a good state of religious feeling con-
tinues. This Regiment has been in sixteen
battles. The moral condition of the army is
thought to be better than it has ever been before.

A GOOD CAMP MEETIN.-The Rev. M. Pucket,
of the S. C. Conference, writes : We have been
blest recently with a most gracious revival of
religion, priTcipally'among the young people.
There were forty four accessions to the Church,
and equally as many conversions. It was oneof
the best camp meetings I have ever attended.
