_To ouRtaiTE tUt, -a1dr -.A.. fast as. we find op-

Snmay be advised as to its present condition and future
prospects. We trust that you will read what is said in
the article "Revival of the Advocate," and that you
will chierfolly content to the small loss each shall susi
tain by the failure of the late currency, ratler than em-
barrass, if not even ruin the paper, by requiring it to-
make good to each subscriber hi less, which in the
aggregate would amount to. a large suam to be paid by
the paper. To be sure, we could repay the money we
have received, and with which we expected to publish
the paper we had promised to furnish, but who would
wish it ? If any one does, we are ready to refund. We
trust for a generous forbearance and a liberal support,
and we beg that the friends of the paper 'will make
haste and delay not" to renew their subscriptions. Let
not one wait upon another, for the sooner they are
renewed, -bL .-!ri.:.i i ll ,L .t ie .--t i..i,, ift 4 regu-

To THE PREss.-We are sure there is not an Editor
who reads this notice, but will sympathize with use,
when informed that our removal and temporary sespen.
sion, have cut us off from all our exchanges. What is
an Editor without full files of the daily and weekly pa-
pers upon his table; yet we have not one of either, ex-
cept the dailies of our own aity, which, indeed, have
kindly anticipated our resumption, and numbered us
among their exchanges. May we venture to ask our
eotemporaries to remember us fross this date, and to
ti r us with a sight of their columns; and if they
Psh *'i-t want a subject for a 'iragraph, we can suggest
that they would do a favor to many of their religious
readers, former patrons of ours as well as of themselves,
whom we cannot yet reach, by informing them of the
renewal of the Adtocate at Macon, Ga., with the terms'
of subscription. Those who have been sending their
exchanges to Augusta will please change to Macon.

To THE PREACH nB.-We venture very largely on
the ground of faith in our friends, tie preachers, when
we put the Advocate at its present price: It will require
four thousand subscribers to publish it at this price, and
there a. n.- Inne r>n- Until the number be brought to
the above figures, the subscription will not pay expenses.
We therefore solicit them to get subscribers and forward
money as fast as possible, that there may be no delay in
bringing out a weekly issue.

CORREIPONNDENE SOLIOITED.-We enter upon our
work again, without money, exchanges, or Correpzon.
dence. We wish to become again, as early as may be,
a vehicle of communication between all parts of onur
Church. We desire, therefore, to hear from every see-
dionof it; and we now solicit such Information as may
-prove interesting to all. Help must be had from our
friends or it will be impossible for its to make the paper
what it should be. We hope very soon to have our
drawer replenished with valuable articles.

IF a) or OF ie PnEAncHsa, into whose hands this issue
may accidentally fall, will inform us of any post offices
or places, that may be reached by Express, private
conveyance or in any way. we will take pleasure in
sending this paper to our subscribers at such places.

REVIVAL OF THE ADVOCATE.
In our issue of 13th April, (which we fear did not
reach many of our subscribers,) we said :
"Our readers are already Informed, that arrange.
monta have heretofore been made forremovingthoAdvio-
cate to Macon, Ga., as soon as the railroads are again In
useo This time Is rapidly approaching, and the paper
must be temporarily suspended, after the present num-
ber, that the office may be moved. So far as .we have
heard, and we have counselled with otr brethren as
generally as possible, there has b 'eti b tt one voices
: ,.''." ,-;s propriety of this step, and that has been
', .-i.t.ie in -i In a few weeks, that Is, as soon its it
is possible, the Advocate will, Providence permitting, re-
sums its visits to its patrons, in full sheet, if the fmturo
prospect will permit it. This cannot be promised absq-
lutely at once, for we cannot tell what a day may bring
forth." ',
This saving elause -a.4 call puti ... Before this num-
hber,went to press .lis. li.:,r ret )ut for Macon, to
consummate the arrangement he had made to join the
publishing firm of J. W. Burke & Co., with a view of

Advocate office was to follow at once, and the moving
was commenced. But'Gen. Wilson'R command reached
Macon before the Editor did, and he found the place in
possession of the United States forces, and the publish-
ing house in ashes. But it was now too late, however
desirable it may have been, to revoke our purpose, or
to change our plans. Some weeks have now elapsed,
and the office is r'-ar- ,iri An- f..? pi-,-- gain set up,
and we are reedy at f.1 h ou-il U [.Ip. 1.3l i our patrons,

atd there is nothing left for us, unless we would im-
peril the future of the Advocate by involving it deeply
in debt, but to follow the advice of Bishop Pierce and
other sagacious brethren whose counsel we have sought,
"to rub out and begin again." We see not what else
we can do and exist.
Now, we propose to "begin again," as soon as we
get enough subscribers to warrant even a small edition.
We put the price as low as possible-too low, indeed,
unless we get a large number of patrons. But we have
faith in the Methodist preachers and people, and we
expect to make up present losses by an increased list,
before the year is out. We also put it in the power of
those who have but one dollar to spare to subscribe at
ouce, for a short term, until their purses can be re-
filled-though we hope, as we greatly need money iow-,
that a. marry as can, will subscribe for two years, by
sending five dollars.
We, therefore, solicit a renewal of subscriptions, r
is not for us to say of what value the paper is to tis
church. All the preahcers We have met are solicitous
that it should be revived; and the following letter from
Bishop Pierce must be more potent than anything we
can say on this subject:'
Mr. Editor.-In your treanit from Augusta to Macon
has the Southena Christian'Advocate beeat lost? Whea
- has become of it? I itise it-it .. i p,-., i f.. ..--
the people mias it. We long f. r IlPs.... I .

to the times, either in the patience of hope or the apa.
thy of despair. .
I know your embarrassments, but I trust they are'
not invincible. True, the mails are out of order, but in
I process of rearrangement. The Confederate currency
has collapsed and yet there is none other to fill th
vacuum. Doubtless you bad on hand a large amount
of money which had come in from your subscription
list. Of course it is a dead loss to you and to the sub-
scribers. Thers is nosedemption-no remedy. There
is no responsibility upon thle paper. You cannot re-
sume publication without new cash mu4,. J./, .,, No
reasonable man will or can murmur i'.r I. ,, ., not
furnish biad with the paper to which he w as entitled
before thie upheaval of monetary affairs. The calamity
is a common one. Both parties are alike sufferers.
There has beaS o bad faith. There is no money to
publish with, and no mails recently to carry the papea
if it had beol issued. The subscriber has lost a little
money which has proved to be no money. -Thie Advocate
has lost everything-is bankrupt as to active available
resources. Lot us all rub out and begin again.
T!h F-, "i ; 'e ,rclhi necessity. In the presentcon-
.A. i Ir- "*- t we must have a medium of corn.
munication with the preachers and the people, in order
to conserve the great interests committed to our charge.
The ignorant, the inexperienced among us, need the
counsel of tihe wise and prudent 'I here is a new order
of things. We are entering upon a new era. Grand
events are projecting their shadows over the land. So-
ciety is to be organized. Active, powerful elements
are at work. I hey will need direction. The -pulpit
and the press are indislpenmsabile to safe navigation in
these stormy times. Great interests ., .1,

elements-to assuage the bitterness of tile hour-to
save the country as far as may be from commotion, ex-
citement and disorder. May God grant us "the wisdom
which is profitable to direct." -
It is my advice that you coimunlcate with the
preachers and people somehow and speedily. Stir up"
all to a prompt, earnest effort to set thi paper on its
feet again. By the way, to avoid fence, might it not be
well to change the name ? Give us the paper at the
earliest possible day. Spare no effort-do not be afraid
to venture a little. Money will come. The church
must have the paper. G. F. PieucEs

THE FUTURE.
The religious press has itsa mission at all times. Per.
haps, however, at no time Is its conservative and har-
monizinug influence more needed, than at a period of
change such as that through which Southern society is
now passing. When the very elements of society are
disturbed, and organic changes in social relations are
spontsneougtsly forcing themselves into its constitution,
without rule or law, except so far as men may be a law
unto themselves; then, every appliance of religion is
needed to enlighten, stimulate and direct the public con-
scienee. Of these, none has a more salutary influence
than the religious newspaper. No small part of its
benefit is, that its columns properly reflect the opinions
of the wisest in the church, leaders in the religious
world over a wide territory, and by its instrunmentality
unity of 'sentiment and purpose is much sooner secured,
than by any other available means. This may seem to
claim much for this organ of public opinion and inter-
course; but every thinking man will allow it, when lie
reflects upon the deep religious feeling involved in our
civil and social revolution, and that over this feeling
the se8si.r. his sas ,'.... -r i',te power, as that exer.
cised I. e reto ..t*, pr"
Fully appreciating; as we Imagine, the responsible
position the Advocate hold, we earnestly solicit the wise
and good of the land now to use ts columns freely for
circulating those conservative and unifying opinions
that the present time demands. We feel that all the
wisdom and influence of the beet and wisest Christians,
of bi hops, preachers and leading laymen, are now
needed to subdue evil pasesons,-allay prejudices, secure
harn,.:.- y .-freati;ment and arll,a,, paofficate the coun-
try. a .- 14-.1 rte Ci-urch ftI-urd its high mission of

p.. O r.r-ist l, iti6.,u l opp,.rn.,nity of becoming co-la-
borers with us um this work, and we shall feel that they
have failed in duty at a vital ploitit, both for the interest
of society and of the Church, if they are silent, when-
ever they may saya word that can effect these desirable
objects.

or to animadvert on political measures. Our mission is
to the Church-our purpo-e, to endeavor to get the
heart right before God. Whatever teaching or argu-
rent, or exhortation we may deem necessary for this
end, we shall not shrink from. Believing firmly that
God reigns, and that true political and social wisdom, as
well as'Christian principle, demands that we all recog-'
nise this great fact, and bow submissively to the divine
will, our purpose shall be to bring the public to acknowl-
edge tlw fact, and to order their lives" accordingly., To
do tits we shall dwell more upon the great principles of

afflict us with a sense, of the mystery in which that ad-
-ministration is veiled. Some of these are human in
origin and.aim, and God may be left to deal with them,

vindicate their rightl, if they will follow duty; others
are local, partial, trans.:tory, and we shall soon emerge

vision grows clear. We do not think It necessary, at
least for the present, to enter -,r...'. -. .,i.oa of these
disturbing forces; but rather to exhort every reader to
i firm faith in that Chirist who its ead over all thiihg
for the Churlch," and whose one work it is to establish
unversally the Kingdom of God. If, after a time, this
be found impossible, by reason of the perplexkng ques-
tions that may present themselveas-if it be ascertained,
that the minds of God's people do not spontaneously
settle down upon fundamental truths altogether satisfy-
ing to themselves, then we may enter this field, and
endeavor by teaching to do what we would prefer selioutld
t .,- r. r .-ii- -.. .... I ,tr, in I lGod.
What we need at present is devotion to duty, such as
otr Ood seems now toaet before nu-active, zealous
o eibrt to save out of the wreck of the past what of social
order remains,, and to give a fresh impulse to every reli-
gions interest-and we exhort all to apply themselves
diligently to this task.

REVIVALS.
Three months ago, there was a most promising state
of religious feeling in many of our- churches. Attend-
ance upon divine service was more general than it had-
been for a long, time; in several churches protracted
meetings were holding with good results; and the
liearts of God's ministers were cheered with the hope.
that this was to be a most fruitful year in His vineyard.
But the marvellous and unexpected events that have
intervened have, we fear, so distracted the attention to
our temporal concerns and our civil relations, that reli-
gious effort has been, in a great measure, relaxed, and
our (Ihristian energic | i.I,,,i PI i'-rf.l I. spLa.
tions have assaulted :... ..1 i,-r. ..i ,r.- a.i- la..I ir. il.,
faith, hope has lost its buoyancy, and in aome eases, we
apprelhnd even faith holds the promise with but a

tic affairs, so much thought, to find the means of liv.
it,1I :.:. '."-. stagnation of business, that it is not
S .. t1 i. sair natural care for home interests
should abate our zeal in those services, by which revt.
vals are begun and carried forward.
The statement of these obvious faets is not made,
because we either approve or would encourage this
state of things. Tie least that we can say of it is that
it is unfortunate-we might, perhaps, speaks ore cor-
rectly, were we to say, that in very many instances,
the religious decline of which it is both a source and a
symptom, is criminal. Religion ou!htI 1... s .t u al&.,-
all variations of earthly temperature, raise us into an
atmosphere, where we are unaffected as to either our
faith in God, or our zeal in Hisa cause, by.any of the
storms below usa-for all storms ought to be be e n

to carry forward the affairs of this world, which belongs
to Him, in a way that does not quadrate with our de-

cloud, is not a healthy confidence. We -5may suspect,
that it was the growthkmore of the sunshine in which
we have been basking, than of those I -rresim t.,g ,.pr.,

faith and give it al ale vigorous growth.
These thoughts deserve considering; and if on re-

safe anchorage, we ought as soon as possible to get
back there. And there is no better way of return, than
by entering with honest and heart ...l. 'r. tI," ....I

from a sermon preached by Bishop Paine at Aber-

Dear Sir: In consequence of thie derangement of tlhe
mails, I did not receive your letter until aday or two
ago. Since your letter was written, events have crowd.

my views of the.present state of the country.

We have, then, the highest military authority for
concluding, that any faithr-tprosecution of the war by
us, would be an act of desperation and folly.
We are exhausted in the gigantic struggle in which
we.have been engaged; and however humiliating if
may be to our pride, we must.succumb.
We have left, neither men, money, credit, arms,
ordnance, quartermaster or commissary sthres.- Haw
then can-we continue the contest? If we attempt it
olr efforts to injure the enemy, for the want of materi
sl of war, will prove .utterly impotent; and will cp
talnly bring further ruin and desolation upon our owr

DRIue PIEAOHES.-Our attention has been called to a
subject which we should have noticed before-the im
portance of drying peaches as an article of commerce.
There is going to be a great demand for this species of -
dried fruit, and we advise our country friends to put :
all their spare force, women and children, to pealing '
arid drying peachse, as they will not only derive great
profit therefrom themselves, but will add much to the '
public interest. Let distillation alone, as fruit consume.
ed by it is not half as useful as in the dried.tstate. Be
sure to peel the peaches, for unpeeled they are compara-
tively worthless. We trust our country friends will
give this subject their earnest attention There is
promise of a large fruit crop, and great demand for the
ried lsfiie; and it belooves the farmer to avail him-
