That previous to the deatmetive fire by which a
Jarge portion of the stock of the Depository was
annihilated, on kno night of,,the 20th ofApr11last,
its management had been luch, on the part of
the agent, as to meet the approval and com-
ends in f this treno ig tdh clinanleial

Depository having been estunated on the 16th Oct
1804, at over ninety-seven thousand dollar in the
el a lost as tonipheod a rea f th
Confederate andatate current, the sum of over
ninety thousand dollars of these assets were swept
from opistena, leaving about seven thousand dolv
lars of assets remaining, consisting of notes, se-
counts, and books (muen of which were unsaleable)
to meet the liabilates of the Depository at the
North amounting to about siteen anousand dollars,
which had already been paid to the Confederate
Government, but which by the events at the war,
the Depository found itself still liable for.
Under these exrcumstances this committee met
for advisemeht last July, and after maturely can-,
1...1. 11.-= subject-instructed the agent-Bro. J.
8 rise, to go North and making anown to the
creditors of the Depository its conduion,-ascertain
from them what terms of settlement could be obs
tained, and whether they were disposed to allord
facilities for continuing the business. The agent
went North about the stret ofAugust, saw the cred-
-iters of the Depository, found himself totally uns,
ble to obtain credit in view of the embarrassed
state of the concern, to continue its business, but
effected an strangement by which the creditors not
cepted the assets, and repealed and discharged the,
Depository of aH present and prospective claimit
uponit or the Annual Conference growing out of
said liabilities.
The committee had advised, and hav3 since ap-
provel and conflrnmed the action of the agent in the
premises, and the shietsof the Depository have been
placed in the hands of Brother Barke, as agent for
said creditors of the Depository.
Your committee fading, therefore, nothing.fur-
ther to do, desire Koreby to express their unabated
confidateeinthe integrity and business manage.

Resolved, That any prolongation or the Pas-
toral term isof most doubtful policy, tending
to the destruction of the whole system of itin-
erancy, and that giving to our Bishopathe pow
er to indefmitely, extend it, will produce un-
essant distinctions between ministers of the
E Church, South, and must result igevitably
in a statedmimetry with its consequences, i. e.,
the closing of hundreds of pulpits, in a word,
must destroy a most edicient agency as a Scrip
-
tural itinerant ministry.
Resolved, That as thousands of our ministers
and hundreds of thousands of our membership,
living and dead, were received into our church,
upon probation, as seekers of religion, and
whilst in that relation were converted, that the
Conference is opposed to the abolition of the
probation system of our church, but .thinks i
might be well to admit all converted person
who present themselves for admission immedi
stely into full connection, and any persons wh
are on probation into full connection, as soo
a the are converted; and that no perso
shoul be received into full connection in ou
church until he or she is converted,
Resolved, That our delegates to the next Gen
eral conference are hereby instructed to act i
.accordance with the foregoing preamble an
resolutions.
After some discussionas to the right and pro

It is in seasons of trial like the present, azul
when our own necessures seem to demand all
our efforts and our care, that Faith enacts its
brightest deeds, and records.its sublamest tr
umps. So was it with the widow .:.1 S.T. 1
when she used her lasthandfulof m. 21 to ri
the Prophet's bread. So was it when another
widowcast her twomitesznto the treasury of the
Lord,.and gave all the living which she had.-
So was it with the disciples at Antioch, during
the famine, in the days of Claudius, when ev-
ery man, according to his ability, sent relief to
the brethren which dwelt in Judea. So was it
with the Churches of Macedonia, of whom Br.
Paul b&re witness, "how Lbat, in a great trialof
afflietion, the abundance of thesrg and their
deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their
liberality." So was it with the Philippians,
whose generous remembrance of St. Paul
prompted them to send to the relief of his ne
cessities once and again at Thessalonica, and
afterwards to Rome, by the hands of Epaphro-
ditus. Surely if they have sown pnto you spir-
itual thmgs. you should gladly ministerto them
your carnal thmys.
We shoidd not fully perform our duty in this
address, Beloved Brethren, if we did not exhort
you to maintain, with all dihgencetheintegri-
ty and purity of your christian character, na the
midst of the severe ordeal through wh1eb the
Providence of God is calling you to pass; and
so to use4he afHietions of these times, "that
they may work olit for you a fai more exceed-
ing and eternal weight of glory." Ye have
heard of the patience of Job, and have seen
the endef the Lord; that the Lord is very piti-
ful, and of tender mercy." "Let patience have
her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and
entire, wanting nothing." It is the old lesson
of our christianity, that through much tribula-
tion we must enter into the Kingdom of God.
Poverty and sufferings have been the lot of the
faithful in all ages, and these have developed
the stern manly virtues of the christian char-
acter. The shakingof kingdoms, the confusion
of human plans, and the turbulent agitation o
human passions, are only preparatory to the
establishment of that Kingdom which shall
never be shaken-to the order and harmony o
that system which shall neverbe changed; and
to the introduction of that perfect spiritual
tranquility which shall never be disturbed. So
far from being unsettled in our faith by all these
6....51 mi .We'##2' Rr th1 er [.1.. 2
taught us that these thmgs must needs be be
fore the end comes. And surely, these earthly
disorders and losses should excite in us the
more ardent desire for those immutable and
everlastingjoys which await us in the life to
come. "Set, then, your affections on things
above, and not on things on earth. For ye are
dead, and your life is hid with Christ in Gods
When Christ, who is your life, shall appear,
then shall ye also appear with him m glory.
"
Happy are they whose earthly losses are thus
made to turn to their heavenly gain-
It is in times of darkness like the present,
when the ways of Providence are untricate and
mysterious, and B is designs are, to human
minds, utterly unaccountable-when reason is
befied in all her efforts to comprehend the
place and ends of Infinite Wisdom, that Faith
reposes in sublime composure upon the eternal
Word of Truth, and awaits with patience the
solution of the problem, under the firm and
unalterable conviction that "the Lord God
Omnipotent reigneth." Soon shall the elemen-
tal storm subside, and our ark, which.has beeti
tossed upon the waves of this deluge, shall rest
in calm security upon the celestial Ararat, and
we shall walk out amid the glories of the New
Heaven and the New Earth, delivered from all
fears of future convulsion, or revolution, be-
holding the beautiful ensign of our safety in
the "Rainbow round about the Throne."
The duties growing out of the new relation
which you are called to sustain to the negroes of
the South, in so far as they aged their religious
condition and spiritual welfare, are not essen-
tially different from those which have always
commended themselves heretofore to your
christian judgment, and which have received,
at your hands, a faithful and zealous perform-

population was made to surpass in the enjoy-
.ment of all the physical comforts of life, the
corresponding classes of society in every nation
of the globe: at the same time, through the ae-
tive histrumentalities which your christian lib-
erality cherished and employed for their reli-
gious resene, thousands have been brought from
"darkness to light," and transferred from the
kingdom of Satan to the kingdom of God. It
can hardly be supposed, that within the limited
of aConferemoe, whose church members have
raised eirandu dontr utio a

privileges of the gospel to the negroes, ally
chrisizan math can be found willing to forego
the laudable effort to eleyste the race in the
seale of intellectual, moral and religious Im.
provement. The same system of instrumental.
ities, with slight chAnges to adapt it to the new
circumstance in which they are placed, may
be employed for their a ititual welfare, and we
bespeak your continuedpand activaco operation
to repder it effeetive. Continue as heretofore,
your arrangements for their accommodation in
all the churches, that frequenting the schools of
catecheticalinstruction, and occupying theirno
customer places in the houseof God, they may
receive from the lips of a pure and spiritual
ministry, the messages of the gospel, and rejoice
with you in the participation of the benefits of
a common salvation
