the plain statuary laws of soti of the
States of this ctnfederacy, and the express
provisions of the discipline of our-church,:
1. In that.-they confirmed the decision
of the Bahirnioie atitinal conference, in the
ease of Rev.1r. Harding :-by. which a
minster ohtte gospel, .of irreproachable
-moral character, was uurigheously de

incapacity, or derellction of duty-contra -

swerable argu-nents. and solemn declara

did virtually suspend from office our be
loved and favorite Bishop:
3. In that-theyrescinded the decision
of a former General Conference, with re
gard to "negro testimony :"-and whereas,
it is manifest in the whole of their refpirted
proceedings in the above cases, as well as
in their'ultimate action in the premises,
they were actuated by principles utterly
irreconcilable to our interests as citizens
of this State, and as members of the Al.
E. Church in the South Carolina Confer

the presout posture of alfairs.- it is high
time for us to give a public and official ex
pIession of our views with regard to these

thing" disqualifying any one for office.
acceptability and usefulness in the Church
of God, is found to be fighting against
God ;--in endeavoring to thwart his pur
poses in the fulfilment ofprophecy ; which
toreto'd that "Canaan," the descendant of'
Ham, should be "a servant of servants to
his brethren ;"-and impugning the recti
tude-of the divina permission, wHich di
rected Israel that in case their lebrew
servants should refuse "to go away from
them" on the year of release '-because be
loveth thee and thy house-because he is
well with thee-and shall plainly say I
love my master, my wife and my children
I will not go out free! his master shall
bore his ear through with an awl, and he
shall serve him forever !" This same spirit
of abolitionism would have found it "espe
dient" to declare that "inasmuch" as
Abrahatit was "cdnnected iutth slanery," in
that he had "three hundred and eighteen
trainedseriants born in his own house." he
should no longer be called "friend,of God,"
or "the father of us all," -so long as that
impediment remained ;"-and, that the
apostlePaul had no divine authority to
permit Philemon, the master of Onesim-'s,
either to become or renmain '-his dearly
beloved and fellow laborer ;" and that he
(Philemon.)i aught never to have been ad
mitted into tie fellowship of the church or

A true copy from the Minutes.
S. J. WAGNER, Secretary.
Charleston. July 16,1844.
Fiom the Augusta Consittutionalist.
- The following is anextract from one of
the leitei-s of Bishop Audrew, written du
ring A visit-he made last winter to Tefas.
This extract ste publish at the request of
a correspoddent; it is taken from the
Christiar Advocate of July 19, 1844. The
inference is strong tiat Bishop Andrew's
feelings are in favor of the annexation of
Texas to our-Uuion.
And, now. patient reader, before I part
with you, perhaps it may be well to answer
some of the questions which are constantly
propounded to me about Texas. It will
be readily perceived, by those who have
followed me in my wanderings through the
public, that the time and circumstance or
my visit were all unfavorable to making a
very correct apinion of the country. The
most of thecountry through which.l trav
elled is faw, and was, at the time of my
visit, almost entirely under water. The
soil, too, I think, is mostly thin, though
there are some splendid etceptions. A
good deal of the couniry througr which I
passed in Montgomery county was very
pretty, and quite' productive. The coun
try on the Trinity is said to be very fine,
and the fertility of the Brassos antd Colora
do bottoms is admitted on all hands. The
country of the San Atronio is spoken of in
high terms of praise by gentlemen who
have visited it. And the concurrent tes
timnony of all, both preachers and laymen.,
with whom I conversed on this subject
settles it, beyond dispute, that there is an
extensive tract of country west of the Col
orado which possesses nimost every attri
bute of a desirable, and first-rate country;
land a.s rich aq heart could -wish, which
may be obtained at twenty-five or fifty
cents per acre :-the verdant prairies,
which sweep around you almort illimita
bly, covered with a luxuriant growth of
Muskeet-grass, which aflords a never-fail
ing pasture for just as many cattle and
sheep and horses as a man may choose to
possess . and this pasture just as green anti
rich in winter as in summer. It is said,
too, that the country is healthy, and that
part of it which skirts the gulf af1rds very
eligitle locations for all honest lovers of
good fish and oysters, and the whole region
abounds with deer. There is, however,
little or nD timber, except about the
streams: it must. therefore, have' a very
inade~qate supply of this very inecessary
article. Vpon the whole, I shtuld think
Texas resembles, itt many respects. some
of our south- western states, with, perhaps,
a more agreeable climate.- The popula
tion is mostly from the States. and is pretty
much-such as we have bberr accustomed
to meet int he new settlernents ofthuesouth
west. I met, every where, a wartii-hear
ted hospitality, and paid only one bill for
lodging in all my route. The uniform res
ponse, when I asked for my bill, was,
-.be sure to call and stay with the, if ever
you pass this way." At churcfi, so far as
I had opportunity of observing, they are,
decidedly, the best behaved people I have
ever addressed from the pulpit. Wien I
was there the subject of annexation was
the theme oif universal dliroussion. And,
I am sure, 1 did not meet five men' in all
my route wvho did not go heartily for it.
The Texans are btrave and patriotic,'and
w ill do as much to maintain their libertj,
as any other people of equal ability ;- but
whether they would be able long to tesist
the ar:6s of Mexico. when that poder shall
be at liberty to apply her undi-fidled ener
gies to the re conquest of Texas'. is a point,
in my judgment, somewhat probldniatical.
They might ga'in repdated battles, but
what must be the issue of a protracted
stugglo betdieen a population of little
more titan one hundred thousatnd, and an
other of eight milliotns 7 1 confess I should

As respects Mexico and other powd~rs,
which is our own main concern -in the
question, it is currently reported, that the
policy and line of our own qountry will

which he has introduced into his school we

The Crops.-The prospects for ftne crops
fere never more flattering in 'the upper
Districts than at this time. In some neigh
horhoodi, however, they have sufTered
severely from drought, and immediately
under the d'ountains, from too much rain.
The Wheatecrop produced abundantly, and
the highest price we have heard asked for
that grain was 75 cents per bushel. Oats
were seriously injured by dry wieather. but
we shoulI suppose tief fully towo. thirds of
the usual quantity b'as 6'en I 6'rvested in
this Distrc!. The stanling erop of Corn
generally looks well;t a'n'& as there is said
to be a surplus of several th'odsajnd.barrels
