in all probability, soon be restored to us *
Nevertheless, we beg leave to report as our
deliberate opinionthatthe publication of books
on large scale-as conducted at Nashville-
liasbeen unfortunate; andsin the estimation of
many of our people, it is an unwarranted blend.
ing of coinme.rcial enterprise with the spiritual
ends for which the Church of Christ was estab-

We therefore would respectfally suggest that
this Annual Conference instruct our delegates
to the approaching General Conference to use
their best endeavors to secure such action on

ily and safely discontinue such plan of publica-
tion; andprovide amore simple and legiti-
mate method, viz : The appointment of an

ONE f)P THE BEBETTING SIR
Beaettingains are partfoularl noticed in the
Scriptures. David, the Psalmist of the Old
Testament, and Paul, the epistolary Apostle of

len oen es Barelveryemphat I
enemies, they areenbtlest; andhencethe need
of constant and anxious watchfulness last they
overpower our hearts. Sometimes, these sins
are the offspring of constitutionaldbia at oth-

sa moet in ne 4 ye eykpokebhom the foorn
of oircumstances as the result of time and
place. But whatever their origin, they are all
alike in their obstinate inclination to get the
mastery over our nature. They are the favor-
xte instruments of Satan, his right-hand wea-
pons in the fierce combat waged against the
soul and itainteresta.
One of the besetting sins of the day is a low
and carnal view of Providence. Long ago, Sa-
tan originated the idea:,"Doth Job fear God for
fantght?" and most aeduously has the Father of
Lies labored to engraft this flattering lie upon
the stook ofhuman belief., It is esIientially the
satania view of Providence and its logic almply
is, that.men are good men because of ine me-
essary rewards that they hope to receive. Un-
fortunately for our experience, Satan has many
believers in this doctrine of his theolo y, and a
and havoemakes he even among e ea sam
In impressing this cardinal point of unbelief
upon their soulii. Trills awaraw at reviaenos
are disappointing to our ,expectations, we
straightway tend to the antaniedogma and veri=
ly conclude that we serve God .for naught.-
Vanity and pride may have been rebuked; am-
bition thwarted presumption checked; false
and pernicious Hopes crushed; and affections
that might have proved ruinous, have been
mercifidly blighted; butin all this, we see only
our short-sighted interest and utterly forget
that(goodness would cease to be goodness if it
spoiled us, by indulging our tastea and passions
in evil gratifications.
Such being the peculiar temptation of these
troubled days, we should guard ourselves by
the study of the Seriptures, and by fervent
prayer against the inroadsi of this sin. If men
lose faith in Providence, they are certain to lose
faith in Jesus Christ. And on the other hand,
just as they cleave to Kim-as their personal
Lord and Redeemer, so will they relit calmly
and hopefully upon all the acts, of his nove-
reign providence. Job:was severely tried by
Providence. His tremenduorts struggle was
with thejustice and gooddess of Providence--
And the same conflict in very many Christian
spirits is now progressing, and the issues for
d
b Aoer atmbe pt to 4 knoa be
ers in the certainty of salutary results,-to
abide the darkness and ysit for the light in the
fixedagaurance that Providence will vindicate
his course. The evilapirit of unbelief that in-
a &ML, Ad es
sad especially must no allowance be"'given to
suggestions tliatimpeach the infinite rhetitude
of the divine administration. In the calm con-
fidence that lightss sown for the righteous and

e eupri in;hear let our
days wherein thou hast ailioted na, and the
years wherein we have seen evil;" and we rest
satisfied that the answer to this will
prove the answer to all our perplexing questions
on the subjects of Providential dealizipp.

HE VIRGINIA CONFERENCE E*
From the Richmond Chistian Advocate and the
Episcopal Methodist we gather some interesting
Acts respecting the earlier days of the session
of this body. The Conference had not adjourn-
ed when the last reports were forwarded,
At 9 o'clock promptly, on the 22& Nov., Bishop
Early called the Conference to order. On the
first day a large portion of the members of the
Conference were present. When it was ro-
posed to have a committee on the state ofpthe
Church, the Bishop intimated that such com
mittees sometimes went outside of their appro-
priate province to consider subjects having re-
spect to the legislation of the Church.
Brief EpiscopaladdresswasmadebyBisho
Early, in which he reminded the preachers opf
the duties before them, the necessity.of conse-
cration to God, and the work-of the ministry;
referred to the embarrassing circumstances that
during the last four years made it needfulto de.
part somewhat from theasageand law in making
the appointments; but the Bishop intimated
that now if any of the preachers did not feel
fully prepared to accep appointment without
embarrassment, and fu resolved to attend to
them, they should sig it at once.
The matters before Conference wereof

The state of the church has been submitted
to the consideration of your committee at a
period of her history, and under circumstances
of so peculiar a character, as to make it a subject
of profound and solemn interest. She has just
emerged from the midst of a condition of so-

brought to the notice of your committee by
memorials and other papers referred to them by
