Tte minutes of Wednesday ware read and approved,
and the following members, absent-on the previous

E. Bellinger, raiiaon Copen, Wm. Johnson, W. W.
Lord, D. D., one j. ~?. ?oabrook; of the laity, Messrs.
W. C. Courtney and Edward 8 coring.
The Ber. C. P. Gadsden then read the Bishop's
address. That document which is quite long, opens
with a detailed recit-J cf the Episcopal visttaUons

tb? nuzutar of perseus cc ?finned-of fin disposition
of the fundt' placed tn ala charge, the number of ap?

the Bishop's functions. A brief tribute ia paid to 1
Bishops Hopkins, Scott and Hawkes, lately deceas;
and the condition of the schools and church sei
nary is noticed and commended to the considerate
of the Convention.
We make an extract from the concluding porli
of the address:
The whole condition of thc Church in the Diooc
demands your calm and seriou??artention. Its pri
tration is even greater perhaps tuan it is understo
to be. Let it be considered whether nome plans m
not be devised for increasing its contributions, a:
supplying with the mnans of life its scattered me:
bers. Lot us all. clergy and laity, ri?o up to t
thorough consideration of this subject; it is t
greet spiritual duty bet?re us. The Church is o
noblest and purest inheritance; we must not let
fall. Times of trial are tubes of grace, brethr.
they prove us, and they make us; suffering lieman
faith, and faith looks up and rest* on God. Wc a
in a severe conflict: it ls the Church's test, and h
opportunity. Let us hear tho voice of Christ bi:
Belt; addressed to ono of the early Churches und
like trials of faith and heart: "To him that ov<
cometh will I grant to sit with me in my throi
even as I also overcome, and am set down with r
Father in his throne."
I feel, my brethren, that I ought not to closo tl
address without some remarks upon tho genei
state of the church and its application to cu rs civs
There seems to be an unusual re; tl' smess of t
public mind, both in politics and religion. In t
former there ls indicated a dissatisfaction withe
isling institution?, and strong tendencies to Bern
eratic developments. In the church, on the co
trary, there seems to bo an Increasing disposition
favor of visible constitutions, and a more orna
culture of external administration and worship. ?
tremes in this direction are producing extremes
the opposite, and thus there aro engendered violo
antagonisms unfavorable to calm thought, conserv
tive influences and just conclusions. Ton understai
me as referring to the subject sufficiently int
cated under th?generol designation of Rituolisr
I seek to avoid everything that may- produce exact
b?tions of mind or undue feeling of any kind, ai
shall not consider the subject in reference to any ci
cum s tan ces and extreme cases. I believe that o
condition in this Diocese, thank God, enables us
pass by these, and be actuated by quiet, rober, an
I trust, holy thought. I beg your consideration ol
few just principles. The value of the Eplscop
Church to us is not to be determined by considerh
it as a single and separated body, with its peculi
institutions, but ss lt really 1B-a pure, central ai
integral branch of the Church Catholic of Jesi
.Christ. As such it bas no limitation in its applic
tiona, but goes out for its truth and authority to tl
primal fountain of divine revelation, and ls capab
of universa] expansion. I cannot now undertal
the heights of the great arguments by which all th
can be established in our favor; we are limited
the point of Divine worship. It is well known th
our devotional service is ritual-we worship in reg
lari y constituted, recognized and accepted forms
prayer. In some respects there may be disadvantaj
in thiB, but the controlling benefits, we ?hink.shou
be obvious to every reflecting mind. These are m
merely incidental, as securing an understood ar
holy worship, both for minister and people, ax
other immediate ends that might DB mentioned-bi
chief!v in securing to us a Divine worship baptized 1
the holiest truths of revelation. We may fair
say that our Liturgy, taken throughout, ls not on'
a prayer, but a doctrine; the distinguishable an
perfect truths of redemption and eternal life ai
incorporated with the whole, and wrought In wit
especial beauty, and the purest proportions of fal ti
Thus the glorious revelations of our salvation b;
Christ mingle themselves with the heart's pures
aspirations; and the great end af prayer is a traine
m producing union with God. In the highest an
holiest manner we aro hereby made not Christian
only, but theologians, unconsciously to ouroolvc
and without any formal action of the understanding
Divine (ruth Interweaves Itself with the heart's sei
sihilities, and light purifies feeling. I sincerely b<
lleve that this is the grand truth of our public woi
ship; we herein not only pray to God, but are taugli
how to pray-to whom-ut whom-and by whom
all the meena and proportions of access to the thron
of God are observed, and the soul stands erect h
her conscious sense of holy union with the Fathei
of Spirits, through the redemption that ieinHis Soi
Jesus Christ How the just efficacy of prayer lie
i in, these truths, and itt application to us, in tb
strength of faith and unobstructed purity of spirit
with which we enter into this sacred worship. W
mu? t have directness of mind and absorbing influ
euee of feeling in this great work of the aoul'a aocea
to God. Whatever clouds the vision of faith, what
ever disturbs purity or heart, whatever misdirect
the attention of the worshipper, impairs the effect o
holy devotion. Nothing that gratifies the taste a
captivates the imagination-nothing that is mere];
external or sensuous, however pleasing lt may bs
can repay the soul for the loss of its direct access u
the throne of God, and the sources of life ant
strength, I believe that the system called Bitualien
does this, and under the profound conviction of thii
truth, I stand forth aa the inflexible advocate of aim
plicity of worship, In tbs name of our Lord Jesu
Christ, and submit to your godly Judgments the prin
ciplcs I nave expressed.

The Committee on the Colored People and Freed?
men reported :
The Board of Missions to the Colored People and
Freedmen respectfully report that on the nth of
June, 1867, they opened a school with appropriate
religious exercises, in the building in Franklin?
street, formerly the Marine HospitiL
The school is under the charge of Mr. W. W. Tay?
lor, Crom New York, who has had twelve female
assistants, all natives and residents of this city, and
communicants of the church. The roll numbers
eight hundred children, with an average attendance
of over six hundred. The teachers have discharged
their trust with great faithfulness, and ?he superin?
tendent, Mr, Taylor, bas shown himself quito equal
to the task he undertook, and hos succeeded in
producing as admirable a school as we could
desire. The improvement of the children
has been marked, and the hearty co-operation
of the mott af thea* parents has shown us that our
labora tum not besa unappreciated, and we trust,
have not been in vam. The school has been opened
and closed with devotional exercises and daily reli?
gious instruction has been given. The different cler?
ical members of the Board liavo visited thc school
?weekly, giving an hour on each Ftiday to religious
training. The children hove been thoroughly taught
in the church catechism, and their improvement is
marked and satisfactory to (his Board. We have thus
far been liberally and generously supported by tho
freedmen's comin's-ion in r?ew Tort, but we have
boen made anxious, lately hearing from the New York
commission that their fonds ore running low, and
that they would bo compelled to ceane their appropri?
ation shortly. Tho parents of many of the children
have pledged themselves to pay a small monthly
stipend. We hope with this and such assistance as
the Board in New York can give to carry on the
work. We have labored in faith, believing that wc
were doing a good work for the Church and the
State, and have every encouragement to hope that
tho seed sown in due time may yield fruit to the
glory ol Qod and the good of souls.
We have been unable, without money or means,
to extend our operations beyond this school.
We rejoice to know that earnest and effective
efforts have been made in some lbw parishes
for th? spiritual welfare, as well os educational ad?
vancement of the freedmen. In the cities they aro
enjoying many advantages, but in the country, re?
moved from observation and opportunities, their
mental and spiritual darkness ls lamentable indeed.
While the church should not relax her efforts to
christianize Africa, we are persuaded she could not
more wisely or humanely expend her liberality and
zeal than to endeavor to christianize these Africans
in our midst, and through them, if it ls God's will,
reach their race in their own country.
No other business appearing, the Convention ad?
journed to meet to-day at ten o'clock.
