Co-operation Received Ita Qa ie toe.
Previous to the final adjournment of the
Southern Baptist Convention at Louisville, on
T^sdaiy last, the order of business was sus
pe?<leu" lu prier to allow the committee on Dr.
TeteVs resolutions Ott Co-operation to report.
In-presenting tty report Dr. Jeter said that
while U.aid not go as far as he could desire
yetrh met th j unanimous approval of the com
mlttee^and he should cordially vote for it. The
vote wen taken without further discussion, and
th? report unanimously adopted as follows:
The- committee to whom was referred the
preamble and resolution with reference to fra?
ternal Intercourse and co-operation with
Northern Baptists, respectfully report:
- Tour committee, with all the light before
th?m oii the subject, submitted to their consid?
eration^ alter a careful comparison of their
vie WB, have but little to add to the cour sel pre?
sented In the report ot the committee OR co-op?
eration "with the Sunday-school Board, adopted
by the convention on Saturday. The policy re?
commended for that boardi3 proper for all the
boards. All are agreed that the convention
and its boards should be maintained in their
.integrity. No measures which endanger their
-existence or diminish their efficiency are to be
tolerated. All the energies of Southern Baj>
tiats should be directed to their support and
the Increase of their usefulness. . Your com?
mittee do not recommend that any measure be
adopted in the' direction proposed in the pre?
amble and resolution referred to them, beyond
those heretofore sanctioned by this convention;
and believing that the further agitation of a
subject widen has absorbed so much of the
valuable time of this body, nt Us last three ses?
sions, tends only to disturb our own harmony,
without promoting fraternal relations with
other bodies, your committee respectfully ask
to be discharged from its further consideration
J. B. JETER, Va., Chairman.
%ntrul Conference of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, South.
. In this body on Tuesday last, under a call of |
Pr. Hamilton, from the Committee on Re-1
vivais, recommended adhesion to the present
system of discipline. The Committee on the
Interests of the Colored People recommended
the adoption of the action of the last confer?
ence ol a separate church organization as pro
vided in the discipline; which, under the rule,
goes over, but will undoubtedly pass. Under
a cali of conferences a large number of resolu?
tions and petitions were received and referred,
including one from Mobile urging the re-enact
ment of the original prohibition in the Code,
prohibiting sash amusements aa theatres, cir?
cuses,dancing, Ac.; and one from St. Louis
asking the formation of a new conference in
Kansas: allowing the Pacific Conference to
subdivide itself within the next four years; for
changes in the discipline regarding infant bap?
tism, and to relieve the present discipline
j from ambiguities. Thia led to a lengthy dis?
cussion. The other proceedings were unim?
On Wednesday Bishop Jones, Darrte, Curry,
I Levi, Scott and others, of the Northern Metho?
dist Chuich, submitted a memorial to the Gen
J eral Conference, as follr ws :
I By the action and the authority of the Gene?
ral Conference of Chicago of 1868, the members
appointed on a commis.1 lon to co-operate with
a like commission from the Church South on
the subiect of union, met at Philadelphia in
1869, when resolutions were adopted approv?
ing the contemplated union of the churches.
But, in the judgment of the Northern Methodist
Church, there is no sufficient reason why a
union may not be effected at once on honora?
ble terms. Hoping you may view this subject
in the same light, and by our united efforts we
may appoint a similar committee to join in con?
ference, and praying that you may be estab?
lished in all that pertains to the welfare ol'a
Christian Church, we ask that this letter may
be referred to a committee.
A report was adopted, saying that the pres?
ent value of the Book Concern is ?(7166.
On Friday the petition to abolish the office of
presiding elder was non-concurred in. The
Christian Advocate is to be increased in size; a
book ls to be published defining a uniform
system of church architecture, and a periodi?
cal called the Home Circle is to be published.
A proposition to strike the word "South" from
the title of the Methodist Church here repre?
sented was referred back to the conference.
Dr. Summers's Commentary on two books of
the New Testament was approved and com?
mended to the church. A long debate on the
abolition of the itinerancy and tho substitution
of the pastoral system was in progress when
the conference adjourned. It ls Delleved a
large majority will vole for adhesion to the
original system of Itinerancy, and declare that
no minister can remain in one flock longer
than two years. Dre. Catterell, of Alabama,
and Edwards, of Virginia, arc eloquent advo?
cates of thorough reform in the old system of
the church government and the abolition of
