period of the proceedin gs,..llesconsid
ered that the assemblineg of tifs:%Qdy, as
now drganized, was the consummation
of the oiganizattion of the Mlethiodisi E.
Church,,, South, in confdrinity to.the
Plan of Separation ad.opteTi-tihe Gen
eral Conference of the M. E. Church in
1844. . le regarded.himuself, therefore,
af this juncture, as standing befuo the
General Csnfetenceduifrlra MetJpodist E.
Church, South, llly organized, and
clothed with full and entire powers to
transact all business appropriate to a A.
General Conference. This organiza
tion he looked upon as having been
commenced in the "Declaration" of the
delegates of the Conference iii the slave
holding Statss, made at New York in
1844.as ha~ving been advanced in its
variods stages in the " Protest"-the
"Plan of Separatin"-the aippointmett
of delegates to the .Luisville Conven
tion-in the action of that body-in thie
subsequent action of the Annual Confer
ences approving the, acts of caeir dele,
gates at the Convention, and Gonally, in
sending their delegaies to constitute the
present body ; and to be now comple
ted in the assembling of the body under
a constitutional President. He had
mnarked with great'care the written sta
ges of tis important;aatter from first
to last, and was fully satisfied that every
steep had been taken- in full conformity
to the act of the General Conference of
1844. He had marked, with no urdiria
ry satisfaction, the peace .and unity
which had govet ned the. counsels of thie
New Oxrganization.. lie knew of no sin
g!&ease-he doubted-whether ecciesi
ajficai history could ~furntish a . case
similar to this, as to the- unanimity with
which such a great -nmovement had beeni
carried thi-ough. - We were .debtors to a
supeintending.Providence in this mat
ter. -God be praised!
-His last tour of-labor had called him
into those porzions>'tf the .work where
the greatest difficulties..were apprehen-.
dd, and he had~ben ha1ppily disap
pointed in finding :uuch agreement and
u 4nity both awnoog-;preaghers atrda
peop-Ie A'pprehended difficulties had
t$6sided' in a greaty degree, and\- peace

He rejoiced exceedingly.:n ts-sate. of

sszttions of-E' s:and. opinions,:
hilhben~ binaiu quar.a
tak, ii thet very srange attitudes he,
ba bee-bal - asnite' in regard to
the Episcopal office.and its prerogatives.
These misrepresentations,. had been cir
culated thratgh these lands and across
the seas. .He had been held. up aq pps,
sessing views on ,this subject quite differ,
ent fon rhoste ente.rtained by his vener
able predecessors, Bishops ~Ashury and
McKendree. These charges were too
general and iodefinite to allow of any
si ecific defence or.reply. It was suffi.
ci nt for him to say that after an inti
nate acquaintance with both these good
aind great men, at a period in the histo
ry of the Church which 'tried men's
souls,' lie had.as ,full -access to, and as
perfect a knowledge oftlhe Views of his
predecessors as any other man of his
day. He assured them that, if he en
tetained any opinions different from
those of Asbury and McKendree-.aoy
higher views of the- prerogatives of the
Episcopal office,-it was unknown to
himself. That he d~ffored with many
excelfent brethren wtitl regard to the
relative position of the Episcopal office
he did not doubt.; but no man.should
mystify him. He did not accord with
the views of.some brethren expressed
on the floor of the General .Conferenbe
of 1844; piidi.furtlhpr, if those were the
views generally prevailing in the Church,
he should unhesitatingly say he. could
not sustain the office, .He tad,o.nce re
signed his election on this very ground,
and under similar circumstances hewould
resign again. Not that he, personally,
was so much concerned, .but,thr great
principlesgiven to us by* our Fathers,
in the organization of the Ctrch were
involved. He was resolye that this
sacred deposite should not be marred in
his hands, essential as it was to the ac,
omplishmient of the great work before
Hie needed not say more. The time
oad now come when it was proper for
him to declare his adhesion. Sustain
ing no relation to one Annual Confer
eico which he did not to another, he
could. notdeclare his adhesion to any
