' PROSPECTUS OF THE.-
North Carolina Christian Advocate.
fVlHE XORTH CAROLIXA AXXUAL COXFEREXCE
of the Methodist episcopal Unurcb, ssoutb, having de
termined to issue a weekly paper bearing ine above name,
the subscribers are authorized to issue tms prospectus.
It is intended to publish a family newespaper, which,
while it shall be religious in tone and sentiment, and main-
i - .1. JnnMna unJ lion iwia .if tha Mathuliat Phmnli
shall be devoted to all the interests of North Carolina, and
furnish intelligence for every class of readers.
In size and appearance the new periodical is to be equal
to any of our church papers, while it will surpass them as
in adantedness to the wants of our people. The entire
insufficiency of the existing " Advocates" to the necessity
of our position, forces us to the publication of our own
naiier : and we confidently expect the hearty co-operadon
of the members of our church in all parts of the State and
Conference, and hope to make the paper so interesting and
inKtructive as to attract natronatre from the public generally.
The " Advocate" will be published at 1 50 a year, and
4U inf number will he issued as early as nracticahle after
the next session of our Conference. It is believed that the
nnhlicRtion will be commenced on the 1st of January, 1856,
It is desirable that as large a subscription as possible be
obtained before the Conference, and the ministers and all
others interested in the enterprise are respectfully urged
tn nmure and forward the names and address of subscribers,
particular attention being paid to correctness in writing
the names of persons, post offices and counties. Those
. who may have no opportunity of subscribing through the
of our ministers, may write directly to Rev. Wm.
E. Pell, Fayetteville, X. C. The payment will be expected
npon the issue of the first number.
The location of the publishing office will be determined
at the session ot ine uonterence.

which there is more of truth than-poetry or romance, and;
in. view of this old saying -and the Animal's xperiooe,
his old friends need have little fear thafhe will at any timar

that would intimate such a thing. , . t '

the vehicle of publishing many a thought to the world;,

it will seek every opportunity , to turn grave and uninter-

Church or State (that's promising- a great deal.) or in tha '
social circle, and keep a strict watch oa the press, literary, .
reiigious and political, and see that each keeps its bounds. .
The ci'izens of Raleigh know well enough the value 6 1
such sheet, and would not do without it another year for,
half a million. Why, since the exit -of tbe Animal from;
their borders, they have had more bad lack than was ever'
heard of before. More Trusts hare .been made," more lions
been given npon property, more assignments made, mora:
quarreling and fighting, more drinking of liquor, more
meanness generally, and more ill luck than ever was known:

for'such evils is to trot out the Animal again. - 8b I think.:
Now, this is the proposition I shall male to you. I want'

and to get that assurance I Shall give you full opportunity '
to correspond with me and to send in all the names that .

If 500 names can be secured, we shall have no fears of the ;
success of the Animal. He will soon grow fat when he be

It has been intimated tome that the connection I sustained'

will satisfy every body, that I had no interest iu the " Pen
