monies should in all places be the same, or ex.
actly alike; for they have been always ddlerent,
and may be changed according to the diversity
of countries, times, and men a manners, so that
nothing be ordained against God's word? Or.

limits, is lawful for "every particular Church,"

Our Church, under the blessing of its Divine
Head, has spread abroad into twenty-nine An-
nual Conferences, and taken on a breadth of
evangelical enterprise. For years, more or less
informally, her sense of need and propriety has
been evincing itself in the effort to bring the
laity into co operation with the ministry in ear-
rying forward this enlarged work, maintaining
the subsidiary interests which have gathered
about her, and in meeting the weighty responsi-
bilities and multifarious carea of the household
of faith. The mind of the Church has been
long maturing to thepresentconclusions. Hence,
the consent and quietaess with which thissoim.
portant measure has been inaugurated.
Now upon the laity will largely rest the re-
sponsibility of working it. Brethren, show your
seal for the Lord's house by leaving your farms,
your shops, your merchandise, your ofEees, and
other employment to attend the Annual and
General Conferences. We need not urge upon
you the duty of appointing, as re resentatives,
men proved and tried, large-min ed and large
hearted, who will count it no hardship to devote
the time and travel necessary to the discharge of
representative functions. Make a conscience of
this matter. Let there be a pause in the too

I deem the appointment of a fast day and of
a week of religious exercises, as of great impor-
tance. I think that it will result in great good
to' and to the country.
The call of the Bishops is founded on the
conviction, that the church needs to be greatly
stirred and baptised with the Holy Ghost,
both in a ministry and membership; and they
could think of no instrumentality so well calcu-
lated to bring about this desirable result, as the
holding such meetings as those contemplated,
It is des ned that there shall be an extraordi-
le to-
nary and united effort, calling the peop

Atr. Editor: It was our privilege to attend
the late Commencement of Woford College.
We did nos reach Spartanburg in time to bear

rable discourse, from Pror. zix. 27.
On Monday evening the 8th inst., there was
an address before a certain Association by Prof.
Jae. H. Carlisle, in which the Professor most
forcibly showed that Scientific men, that Math.
ematies, that Triangles, that "The United States
Coast Survey" had for example more to do with
getting a box of goods from New York via
Charleston to Spartanburg than perhaps one in
one thousand had supposed. This address re-
cently delivered before a certain "Literary
Club" was pronounced a masterly eKort. It
will certainly bear repetition.
On Tuesday evening, we were favored with a
Concert by the young ladies of the Spartanburg
Female College, assisted by Prof. Warren Du-
Pre of Wofford College and others.
Then followed the address by Rev. Prof. Les.
ter who most eloquently maintained that "The
true end of study consists in the leading out
and the discipline of the mind in order to ap-
prehend truth and attain the highest and best
ends of human existence. And that the pro-
gress in the acientific w rld ran earallel tb
made in the moral apd religious world."
on Wednesday evening, Commencement day,
a large and appreciative audience convened so
the College Chapel, and after singing and pray-
er, the President, Rev. Dr. Shipp, announced
that we would now have an oration by J. Adoll

men themselves.
After a most impressive Bacealaureate consist
ing of appropriate passages from the word of
Inspiration, a Bible was resented to J. Adol-
phus Foster and one to / W. Shipp, and then
the diplomas of graduation.
The Annual Report by the Faculty exhibited
marked profrolency, commendable decorum, and
abighmoral character on the part of the students.
The Rev. A. A. Porter, D. D., was then in-
troduced to the audience to deliver the "Annual
Literary Addreas," which was equal to the occa-
nion, and not unworthy of the title just b*stowed.
The Dr. discoursed upon "The uses of educated
