Bishop Early-I have the pleasure of
introducing to the Conference Rev. Thomas
B. Sargent, of the East Baltimore Confer-
ence. .
Rev. Thomas B. Sargent-I wish to cor-

more Conference, but now no longer-,
I have come, sir, to stay home. I
have been longing after home for many,
many, years, and I feel now that I am at
home, and if God permits me, I will stay at
home until I go to a better home. I never
could come to this home until now. Ihave
been always like Abraham still journeying
towards the Soduth, and I am lliappy at last
to are arrive ere. [App use.]
Bishop Early then introduced to the Con-
forence Rev. John Poisall, who said : Al.
low me, brethren, to express the sincere and
undissembled satisfaction which I feel in
meeting you here to-day. I am here under
similar organees to those just referred
to by my good bother, Dr. Sargent. I am
not here to address you-I have no speech
tomakp-I am a very modest, unpretend-
ing man, and simply refer you to my past
life as a Methodist preacher. Perhaps, if
it were proper, it would not be uninterest-
ing to some of my brethren, to refer to the
peculiar pressure under which Iwas impell-
ed to tender my resignation as pastor of a
church in one of our Northern Conferences.
But it is not proper to refer to circumstan-
ces of this description. Fora period of more
than 37 years I have had an honored place
in one of the Conferences of the' H. E.
Church. At a very early period of my life
I wasreceivedinto the fold of that one.
That is the Conference of my honie. In
the progressof our busy Itinerancy, by my
revered and honored friend, Bishop Soule,
when yet a young man, I was transferred to
the New York Conference. I was there
for ten years, all told, flist and last. Under
thevery trpug ordeal, far fry my home,
removed from my cherished field of labor, I
was impelled to offer my resignation as pas
tor:of Bedford Street Churgh in the city .(
New York. I left many friends there. The
simple isime with me was this: I could not
turs my back upon my father, I could not
consent to be a party to the war. I was wil-
litg, with the blessing of God, under the
guidance of that good Providence that had
Watched over se and mine, and taken care
of our beloved Methodism in the Southern
Rates and Conferences, to link my fortunes
vith hers, and without a church, upd with-
(ut an income, I tendered my resignation
and left the people of my ..1,. ch p... .0 -
with them in good faith, and receiving ex-
pressions of confideace and friendship. At
this moment i bare the satisfaction ot know-
ing, that however unpretentious in other
respects I may be, I have the treasure of a
consistent record. Ifeelhere to-day among
you, Mr, President, and these eateemed
brethren, although now very much .embrir-
zassed-notwithatanding this distinction ora

it was desirable, that we should have upon un

that this resolution should go before the tu

those enteringupon the ministry, ene of p
this kind should be inserted, by which fe
preachers shall pledge themselves to avoid c
the introduction of political discussions in b

Dr. W. A. Smith, of the Virginia Con-
forence: I am tempted to speak in the hope
that I abail see a unanimous rising vote on
the question. I differ with Dr. Lee with
the greatest rehiotance. I had rather differ
with almost any other man, butram prompt-
ed to speak with the hope that even Dr. Lee
will unite with us in a risi vote on the
sub ect. I know that I ha been ultra
enough and probably am still ultra enough
on this subject, but Ishall consider it as a
part of my record, and I am willing that it
should be so considered. I should regret if
it were otherwise, that I took part in an af-
firmative rising vote on this resolution. And
I again repeat, that I hope that we shall not'

think fle OVerlOoks a very slight distinction
that he should have before his mind. Iwill
state it. If this proposition came to us from

I would say any." I would say purge
yourselves of the iniquity of occupying our
territory, and intriguing upon law, justice,
sympathy and everything else. Purge your-
.selves first of the iniquity of sinningagainst
right, in taking our property and holdingit,
and seeking to subordinate the military au-
thority of the United States to carry out your
plans. Purge yourselves of that iniquity,
wash yourselves of that sin, and when you
have done that, come and ask us to pray
and we will unite with you in prayer. We
are praying all the time, but do that and
we will unite in praying with you. Now, I
suppose, that is the real animus of Dr. Lee
on the subject. But that is not the propo-
sition. It is a proposition from the East
New York Conference thateammits itselfby

No, sir. I heartily and cordially unite with

Rev. Dr. Deems, of Nort) Carolina Con-
ference: Whatever we do on this subject
must be done promptly. I do not feel at
Tiberty to detain the Conference one unne-
cessary moment. I am for :he passage of
these resolutions unanimously and I unite
with Dr. Smith, of Virginia, in hoping that
everyman will vote for theni. T have lately
spent several months in the Worth, and I
have received the most cordial attention from
the brethren there. Whenever an invita-
tion was extended to me to preach that I
could accept consistently with my relation
to the church, I accepted it, and more in-
vitations were extended than I could possi-
bly accept. 'The last sermon that I delivered
there, was probably in the very church in
which this Conference is now in session.-

[Laughter and applause.] We cannot be

our hearts, we adopt this resolution. I hope
the resolution will be adopted, and to their

avocation with alsority. Her citizens gener-
sily seem to be actuated with that degree of
enterprise which denotes a return of prosperity
at an early day in the future. The small farms
that dot her forests are being renovated and

her soil is peculiarly adapted, will constitute
the bulk of her crop the; present year, and, in

with ease, ten acres in cotton and five in earn.
An average crop on the pine lands is a bale of

the eye of the capitalist. Jacksonville, Cedar

since the war. At Cedar Keys, we are in-
formed, there are over twenty mills aciting
lumber, which is principally shipped to Cubs
and sold. On the railroads and interior of the
State, saw mills are rapidly going up, without
any dimunition in the demand for lumber at
thirty dollars per thousand feet. Laborers
seem to be scarce and the demand increasing
daily. Timter cutters pay twenty-five dollars
and rations, while farmers are paying from ten
to fifteen dollars and rations or month for able

BANKING AND ExCHANGE.-The mystery of
banking and exchange is here very cleverly
shown :
On the banks of the noble Susquehana stands

deposits his funds in hand until his necessities
require them. An instance of sharp collect.
tion, occurred there a short time ago, which is
worthy of mention. Mr. M-, a merchant,
being on .the eve of .starting to Philadelphis to
purchase goods, called upon Mr. F-, his
banker, for a large amount of funds which he
now would have occoition to use. Having to
travel some distance by stage, Mr. M was
advised by Mr. F- not to risk carrying the

charge five-eights, whereupon the draft was ac
cepted. The next morning, as Mr. M- was
taking his place in the stage, he was hailed by
F- with, "Isay, M-, I have a small pack-
age I wish you would carry to Philadelphia for
me." M-willingly took charge of the pack-
age, and finding it addressed to the same par-
ty upon whom the draft was drawn, made no
delay in delivering it upon his arrival in the
Quaker City. Great was his surprise, however,
when the gentlemanly banker proceeded to
cash his draft by coolly opening the package
he had himself carried, taking from thence the
amount of his depositsathome,1ess five-eighths
