From the Bibhcal Recorder.
To the Rev. .Vr. B. Jourssow, D. D.,
of Edgefield District S. C.
My Dear Brother:-Pardon me -for
thus bringing your natne before the 'pub
lie. It was for the purpose, -and with
the expectation or doing eood, id that
branch of the church of Christ to which
we both belong.-l have occasionally no
.iced in our religious periodicals- latters of
this nature, addressed to men of deserved
standing and iulluence-in the church ; so
liciting their- opinions and' advice as'to
certain doctrines and practices then prev
olent, antid agitating the minds of men for
good or for evil. Such communications
appear to the to be extremely userul and
inte-esting. They are read with avidity
as coming from a sour:e high and respec
ted and carry a benign infuence over an
Why not make whatever wisdom and
piety there is in the church available for
the general good I The property, as it
ought.:o be, not of some little corner of the
land but the whole -brotherhood of faith.
Many errors in faith and practice, which
have curraney and are doing mischierin
some less enlightened sections. of the
church, might be arrested and abandoned
if the propagators and encouragers of them,
who often mean well, could' see them ju
deiciously discussed and satisfactorily con
demned by some -of their venerated bre
thren. Your age and services to the
church, and your long experience in the
Lord's vineyard, entitle you to the distinc
tion, among many other worthly brethren,
of being requested. on this occasion,.to
furnish our members with your views in
regard to the practices and modes or wor
ship which I have frequently witnessed,
and which I am ~niw about to describe to
you. I have lived for many years in N.
Carolina, and since my removal to South
Carolina, my summers have been chiefly
spent itn the upper or central counties of
-the former State. Durirg all this time I
have been very frequently present at large
public meetings held by our haptist breth
ren continued for several days in succes
sion. These meetings are almost always
held in the open air. under the shade of
some pliasant grove, in the centre of which
is erected "the staud," as it is called, or
pulpit, with seats for a considrable num
ber of preachers; and in fine-weather, when
housands of im mortal and reponsible be
ing are seated in. respectful silence around
and looking up to the embassador (of
Christ there elevated to teach and to per
suader-nothing"can he more impossing,
nothing more inspiring to .he feelings,
nothing which ought to fitl the breast of
such ambassador with more trembling awe
lest he should say or (o somethitin wrong,
for if he should, it might light upon some
unstable, excitable mind, who will propa
gate it rapidly by sympathy to the itm
The exercises, on the occasion of tiese
large protracted meetings, commence, as
is usual, in'ordinary'meetings. A sermon
is' preached, and the utmiost decorum and

to apply for baptism at the earliest oppor

of their experience, admitted into- the
Such is a brief sketch of the history of
protracted meetings, both baptist and
methodist, as I have witnessed them in
N. Carolinn. God furbid that I should
distori, or exaggerate, or set down aught
ill sporn, or with a view to bring reproacb,
or ridicule upon my-brethren. They have
received me kindly among them, cordial- I
ly invited me to preach, and if I ever re
ceived heart-touching evidences of being 1
lis:ened to with profit and with gratitude it
has betn at such meetings. It is with fair I
other intentions than to furnish a handle i
for the mocking world that I give this i
plain and faithful delineation. . If these a
proceedings are. right, are scriptural, are
and owned of. God,- as well pleasing
itn his sight, my brethren who con
Iduct and encourage them, will not be a
shamed of having them expossed to pub
lie view ; but if they are wrong and no
scriptural and fraught with numerous
evil, to the world and to the church, any
looker-on who wishes well to the cause of
religion, is justified in remonstrating and t
endeavoring, with kindness, to convice his
brethren of their error. My opinion, has
not been withheld when I have been -pre
sent at such times, but it-had little effect.
It was attributed, I suppnse, to a lack of
zeal, or to prejudice, while perhaps, in
their hearts,.they were inclined to give me
Gamaliel's advice: - "Now I ay unto you (
refrain from these men and let them alone :.
for if this counsel or this ework be of men it
will come to naught : but if it be of God
you cannot orerthrow it ; lest ,haply ye be
found even to fight against God." 8
Althoughthis-paper has been penned
rather to call out their views than exhibit r
my own, I will briefly state the reasons d
on which I have left myself warranted, to
bear this testimony against this mode of
working on the minds of men in religious

if any man will seriously read I Cor. xiv.
from the 30th verse to the end, he can help d
perceiving that the Apostle's reproof is
directed against disorder and confusion of
much the same kind as that now itt qtues- a

at a time, and particularly women taking a
a part in public exercises. -. t]

proof that- the truth has takeneffect ;and 1
this agitation, when once begun, iv-rejoiced a
