passed an approving judgment, and looked with
an admiring regard upon the faith of those who

said he to the other, "great is thy faith!"
Greilt faith was needed in those who were
the first to force the barrier that ages had thrown
up between Jew and Gentile, and great faith in
these instances was displayed. Of the two,

the resolutions already adopted (thrpuubstance
of which we have given,) by this meeting,
should be carried out in good faith.
The report, adopted on Sunday-schools, com
taine in its preamble many powerful and elo
quent thoughts and sentiments. The indispen
eable utility of this Instrumentality is most
earnestly maintained; and, particularly, the im-
pressive view is presented and insisted on, that
the great specifle object of the Sunday-school ius
to apply all its machinery, perpetually and a
clusively for the conversion and salvation of the
children. We proceed to give the practical
recommendations of the Report:
To ensure* the success of Sunday-schools in
our C reh, weprecommendequested, throughout

the District, at an early day, to preach a sermon
to each congregation served by them, especially

1st. By visiting the members of their flocks,
and urging upon them in private conversation
the Importance of sustaining this interest.
2d By personally attending the Sunday-
schools connected with their charges, and aiding
by therr counsels to increase.the efEclency of
the schools.
2. That no eneh station, circuts and mission,
the iteld of labor be subdivided into districts,
in which the pastor shall endeavor to enlist the
action and co-operation of one or more pious
persons, who will undertake to canvass their
neighborhoods, with a view to bringing th
children of all our members and congregati
"to the Sunday-schools.
3. That, wherever practicable, there shall be
held monthly concerts of prayer, in which pas-
tors, superintendents, teachers and puptis shall
be invited to unite us special prayer to God for
the prosperity of our schools and the conversion
of our Sunday-school children.
For the purpose of stimulating the energies<
of our Church in this direction, we also recom-
That a committee of three be appointed by
the President of this meeting, who shall cor-
respond with the friends of Sunday-achools
throughout the State, for the purpose of getting
up a General Convention of Sunday-School Su-
perintendents at some central point in the State,
where all the great interests of this cause may be
In conclumn, by a varrety of cogenitornonsi
erations, ty and propriety are en ,
applying the Sunday-sehool influence for the re-
ligious Instruction and amelioratxon of our col-
ored population.
It appears from the Report on this subject,
that the investigations and attention of the
Committee were directed exclusively to the home
field. The amount of gospel destitution is very
large. It is found, for instance, that there is a
large scope of country South-west of Butler,
some twenty miles square, where there are no
churches, and where many of the people do not
hear a sermon from year to year. This destitu-
tion excites the deepest interest, and ought to
instigate to the discharge of duty as stewards of
the manifold grace of God. It is therefore
1st. That this destitute section be occupied at
the earliest possible time, by a special missionary,
preparatory to a proper representation to the
next South Georgia Conference, as to the neces-
sity of making it a permanent mission.
The second resolution receives the Report of
Rev. W. W. Tidwell, of Upatoi Mission, and
recommends said Report to the South Georgia
Conference, at its next session, for favorable
consideration, under the light of facts developed
during the year, to wit: That it is the desire of
the following eburches, Olave Branch of Talbot.
Lon Cironit, Pleasant Grove East, Pleasant Grove
West, and Mt. Zion of Upatoi Mission, to be
organized into a circuit, and that the remaining
appointments be condoned as a mission. "
3d and lastly, the spiritual interests of the
colored people are most earnestly commended to
the fostersug care of the Annual Conference
and the duty is respecttully and affectionate
urged upon our ministers and people, to avoid
and remove all causes of alienation between the

which pleased the Lord so much-for he likee'
as we all do, to be trusted in-and which-drew
from him the nowouted expression at once of
approval and admiration, "O woman, great is
thy faith!" It is theenme kind of simple trust
in Jesus that we need; and in us too, if we but
had it su like degree, it would accomplish like
blessed results. What the silence and the sen.
tences of Jesus were to that entreating woman,
crying after Jesus to have her poor child enred,
his ways and his dealings, in providence and in
graceare to us crying after him for the healing
of our own or others' spiritual maladies. We
cry, but he answers not a word; we entreat, but
he turns uponus a frowning countenance; when
he speaks, his words seem to ent us off from
comfort and from help. But deal as he may
with us, hide himself as he may, speak roughly
as he may, letus still believe that there beats in
that heart of the Redeemer a love to us, upon
which we can at all times east ourselves in full,
unbounded trust.
"Woman, great is thy faith; be it unto thee
even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made

by war, and two years of drought, and now God
has given us a good crop of wheat, and a large
promise of abundance of corn. We were bad
enough to deserve the yeare of war and famine,
but we are not good enough to deserve this rich
harvest of wheat and thus gracious prospect of
all else that we need. It is the goodness of
God. So all good men think. In our poverty
we east our care upon the Lord. We asked
Him for this wheat. Very little do we change
