At* tho conclusion of bis address,

Jfi'nott'aT, That this Conference has
li ou rd with great pleasure tho comma
ii teat ions made by Drs. I . Branch ami
ti. W. Prossly, delegates from the Con?
vention of Circles ol' 1'iayer in Abbe- :
ville District,'and that we do heartily
respond to the Christian sentiments ex?
pressed by them; and that, we extend !
our cordial sympathies lo them and thc '
oiuso they represent, ami that we do re
commend thu establishment of these
Circles, by our preachers wherever1
pru ot i ci h lc.
Mr. Lourd had been affected by the j
information received, particularly be- j
eu uso he had known thu last speaker
fro HI boyhood, and because bis own pa- I
rents lavin th? graveyard ol thu chili eh
io his neighborhood. In his boyhood, ?
Methodism was little known ur I ivvd in
that community, but now it lia.I ?lure
ti hold upon thc tilfoctions ol the people

Kev .J. T. Wightman staled that ?
meetings similar to tho Circle id' Prayei j
had heel) held hy the preachers io the
city ot Charleston, seven denominations

mony that prevailed among the di ll ev?
ent ?burchos in Chcraw, and of tho re?
vival that had resulted therefrom du?
ring the pivH summer. The audience
was deeply moved by bis fervid, broth?
erly remarks.
Bishop Kavanaugh added ti few words
of congratulation oil 'thc progress ol
christ iou union, and exhorted the as?
sembly to pray much and nilen. Ile
thought, the hies of love were burning
down the old fences that divided the

Tho following resolutions was passed
/ttMofvM?, That we hereby oxpross our
sense of l be evil of encouraging Fairs
und Festivals for ga i ti, which uro now
held by the members of our church, to
promoto the pecuniary interests of the

(hough intended to accomplish a good
purpose, en co urti gi frivolity, dissipation,
mid often illegitimate means are em?
ployed to incrotiso their gains, such ns
extortion, rallies, and tho like.
A. A. dilbert presented tho report ol
thc .Special Committee on Finance,
which embraces apian of operations for
tho ensuing year. Ile addressed tho
audience most, earnestly upon thc duty

to unite in more notion.

from Itev J ll Pickett, ami S Boho, Mr
Mobo called upon thc preachers lo ?lo
their duty in re I ere ii co tu all tho in?
terests and bring I hem all np.
Dr A F. Williams in urging the per?
formance of duty, contended that, one
lout h was the true measure ol christian
liberality---not a tenth of net proceeds,
hut. u tenth of tho gross proceeds of
business, paying the expense ol'business
mt of tho ninth in hum! "Ve are not
your own, but aro bought with a price" -
[hen you aro his, and all you possess
belongs to Him also. Cod will repay
tho donor what he may give. Ho had
told a brother he would stand security
that il bo would give a certain sum for
tho support of thc ministry) ho would bc
security to Cod that it should bc repaid
in twelvo mont hs. Tho second day
thereafter, this brother absolved him
from the obligation, for Uod had already
paid buck tho whole amount. Ile pro

Mr T S Moorman thought 'he Metho?

point ho bad long wished to see. He
believed thc finances ul thu church
should be left in the hands of the laity
Ho regretted thal the ministry should
have so much to do with collections ol
