The Ohio Congregational State Conference
its annual meeting in Cleveland, Plymouth
Chnrch, commencing Thursday evening, June
It was duly organized by the appoint
ment of Rev. It. II. Conklin, of this place,
Moderator, Rev. E. M. Cravath, of Berlin
Heights, Scribe, and Rev. J. E. Twitchell, of
Dayton, Assistant Seine. The Ohio State
Conference embraces ten local conferences.
These local conferences include but a part of
Congregational churches within our State,
not be'ng connected with conferences,
preferisg independency, and many still retain
ing tbeir connections with Presbyteries on tbe
Accommodation Dan. The Report of the
State Conference, therefore, does not give the
numerical strength of Congregationalism in
State, but only that part represented in
conference. ' We have within our borderst
over one hnndrcd and fifty congregational min
ister, and between two and three hundred con
gregational cb arches. Tbe exact membership
are unable to give, just now, not having by
tbe authorized reports necessary to furnish
the precise figures. It will be seen, however,
from tbe details giren, that this ecclesiastical
organization must exert an immense moral
power in our State, as wetl as upon the nation
and world. Ofthe moral character, intelligence,
talent and enterprise of the Ministry, we need
speak ; the history of tbe denomination is
too prominent to make it necessary. Tbe de
oomiualion may safely claim to have exerted
its full Eh a re of influence, in elevating the intel
lectual and moral character of onr Slate.
The conference, at its meeting io Cleveland
among many oilier excellent tilings, passed, af
ter discussion, resolutions on tbe state of our
country, which we commend to the considera
tion of our patriotic citizens. Tbe Cleveland
papers not only speak very highly of tbe con
ference as on ecclesiastical body, but especially
cetnnvnd tbe patriotism of tha ministry, as ex
pressed iu their speeches and in these resolu
We are Informed that the conference
throughout, wai characterize! by a fraternal
spirit and unity of desire and design w irtby of
such an accasion, and which must exert a ben
eficial influence upon ministers, delegates and
churches. Visiting members and delegates
from foreiga bjdies were quite numerous, and
all seemed greatly to enjoy tbe occasion, as one
of uncommon interest. Next year the State
Conference will meet at SpringSeld Obio.
Tbe Rev. Mr Wicks, Chairman of the com
mittee on resolutions, presented the following,
which were adopted :
The Congregational Conference of Ohio
assembled again in annual convocation at
Cleveland, in tbe midst still of raging rebel
lion and war, cannot forebear to give ex
predion to tbeir thoughts and feelings iu
words of encouragement and cheer to tbeir
r-hurches as well as to those placed by the
Providence of God at the belm of our na
tion, and who bear iu their bands tbe sword
1. We, as Christian men and Ministers,
have been taught by our holy religion to
pray for onr rulers; to submit to all right
eous authority aod law, and to recognize
civil government as of Divine institution,
for tbe protection of society against all evil
doers, weieei it, therefore, to be our
especial duty and privilege, and a part of
religion to stand by our government in all
its struggles with wickedness and crime.
aod give our lawfully appointed rulers the
whole weight of our Christian influence in
upholding tbe majesty of violated law, and
assure them tbat tbey may, beyoud a per
adventure, rely npon us ju tbe employ of
all the means wbicn God has put in their
bands for tbe maintenance of those char
tered rights and principles, Iu the peaceful
possession or wbicb we bave been so emi
neotly blessed hitherto.
2. w bile we do not deem It necessary
to reiterate sentiments heretofore expressed
by ns, io regard to tbe righteousness of this
war on the part of oar government, and
our abhorrence to tbat wicked system of
oppression oot of which it bas grown, we
aoaesiraat ibis time or rebuke aud blaspbe
my, aod our country's neril. as ministers
and churches of the Lord Jesus Christ, to
ntier our solemn condemnation of tbat fac
t'.ous spirit of intobordinatioa and oooosi
tion to all the measures of the Government
in the), conduct of the war and suppression
of the rebellion, wbieb grows out of a du
geront and insatiate lust of power, and
has a trner sympathy and alliance
the rebellion itself, than with any
righteous efforts for its suppression.
8. As .Christian men, and members of
communion which insists preeminently
tbe great doctrine of hnman equality
before God, we most cordially approve of
proclamation of freedom by the Presi
dent of the United States, aud rejoice that
the wise ordering of Divine Providence
was enabled, as tbe Coramander-in Chief

weapon for the overthrow of the rebellion

effectual blow both at treason and the
giant sin af oppression in the land.
4. We rejoice further In the abundant

wisdom and thonght, God is teaching this
nation great lessons, and working out deep
problems, employing the foolish things of

things of the world to, confound tho mighty

that the efforts now put forth by our
Government and nation Tor the suppression
the rebellion may be crowned wih the
most sigual success, with anxious hearts do
look forward to that wished for hour,
and prav especially that our rulers and
people may then be endowed with the wis

been put into our power, and to mete out
guilty traitors that righteous punishment

lest God rises up in judgement against us
and require It at onr hands.

calamity is in God that God against whom

not felt our need against whom we hav

A former letter left us at Lavergne,
Tennessee. We bad been into Kentucky
after tbe rebel Morgan. We arrived at
Lavergne on the 10th of January, having
comfortable times nnlill June 3d, at wbicb
time we left for Trione, 18 miles west. We
had a pleasant march through a beautiful
country. The afternoon after our arrival
we went on Division Inspection under
General Granger, who commands the
troops at Franklin, Triune, aud at Nash
ville. There were three divisions ia all,
with their batteries, we bad no sooner
come from inspection at about sundown,
than we were ordered to go to Franklin,
15 miles west of here. We had heard
cannonading in that direction oil tbe after
noon. A brigade of cavalry left here about
4 p. it., and arrived at Franklin about sun
down, the 1st East Tennessee, Lieutenaut
Colonel Browulow commanding in the'ad-
vauce. They found tbe town full of rebels
About 2,000 cavalry who were pillaging
the stores. Ou a hill commanding the
town is a strong fort with heavy guns. Its
garrison of 1,800 men had prepared the
commissary stores and small arms to des

We started about dark, and it was very
dark. Soou the thunder began to roar
and ibe lightning to Hash, wbich kept us

job before ns. Witb our brignde in the
forts at rrauklin, we could dety tne whole

On the afternoon of the 9th tbe pickets
were attacked by a party of secesh cavalry
and the rifles cracked quite lively for a

in ten minutes, nwaiting orders. Ibecav-
alrv went out and drove tbe rebels several
miles. We were not called upon and bad
nothing to do but to uiibarness again. A
cavalryman brought us word that two reb

1 should not be surprised ir we bad a
brush here almost any day, but there is a
large force here and we feel entirely com
petent for tbe affray when it comes The
rebels have got the idea that we bave
weakened our forces bere by sending rein
forcements to Qeueral Grant, while on the
contrary we are being reinforced bere eve
ry day, and tbe troops are iu good spirits.
Tbe health of our boys is good. While we
were at Lavergne we spent our time io
drill, and now we think that if any bat
tery wants to beat us, as far as field drill
is concerned, tbey must get up early in the
morning. We nave the Nashville daily
papers here regular, but like right well to
get a Telegbaph occasionally. Please to

Appoeite. The Brooklyn Eagle, Cop
perhead organ, opposes tbe movement for
a peace meeting iu thatciiy. for tbe reason
that it would not look well to talk about
peace at one end of tbe State of New York
if tbe rebels sbonld happen to mareb
through Pennsylvania to Buffalo at its oth
er extremity, as tbey propose to do. Tbe
reason is excellent and tbe parallel holds
good concerning tbe country at large.-
When a rebel force holds a part of tbe na
tion by military farce, obstructing tbe
operation of the laws and threatening tbe
existence of the government, it really does
not look w en to bold meetings to propose
measures of compromise at the other ex
tremlty of it. Tbe Eagle, copperhead as
it Is, for once gives wise counsel to tbe
ArroiMTMEKT. Ex Congressman John
Hotchios, of Ohio, has been appointed
agent of the Treasury Departmnet

unsettled claims and examrtiltvg into
practicability of reestablishing the
