Address of Bishop Andrew to the M.
E. Church South.
BELOVKD BRETHREN: Theevencsof
the last three months have placed our
country in greatly altered circum?
stances. The fortunes of war have
brought U3 ashlin under Federal rule,
and it becomes us to act wisely in our
uevv relations. The stars and-stripes
again wave ovor Us-'tis now our na?
tional flair, and should by us be re?
spected accordingly. Our fond antici?
pations of a separate nationality have,
in the Providence of God, been disap?
pointed, and it becomes us to submit
quietly to this providential award.
\Ve have maintained a long and
bloody struggle; our soldiers have
. fought bravelj-, and although forced to
submit to overwhelming numbers, yet
we haye lost no honor, our enemies
being the judges. Now that our
annies have been properly surrendered,
and our brave soldiers are returning to
their much loved homes, it is our duty
to acquiesce quietly in what, Provi?
dence seems to have ordained for us
Let. us all deport ourselves as quiet
peace-loving, peace seeking citizens,
Let us, as far as practicable, try tc
forget tbs wrongs we have suffered
from the Northern people, and hence'
forth seek to cultivate the spirit o
peace and good neighborhood. Thir?
ls holli our duty as Christians and oui
interests as citizens. We hope thal
none of our people will for a momenl
countenance bushwhacking or gue
nlhi warfare. These arc wrong ir
principio and practice, und whatevei
apology men may have made for their
during thc war, th<*re"can bu none now
Above all, let no parole ! soldier vio
late his parole by uniting in such en
terprises. The oath cu which you
parole was given was a solemn appea
to God, and it may not be violate*
There arc Federal soldiers stationei
among you, and this, perhaps, will b
necessary for sometime. Cultiv?t
kindly feeling towards them. So fa
as I have observed their deportment;
they seem disposed to bo orderly. Le
us not, by our uncivil deportmen
towards them, provoke them to a con
tra ry course of conduct. Invite then
to your churches, that they may ming]
with you in the services of religio*
for there are, no doubt, many arnon
them who, at home, are membe%j c
the church and consistent Christian:
i 'nave noticed with pain that som
of our e&timable ladies seem to tak
pains to express in the bitterest tern
of reproach their contempt for th
'Yankees.' Now, this is unwise f
well as unchristian. To sum ap all i
a. few wor-d?t, trod seems to have oi
dained thaVwe shall live together i
civil compact with tho North ;
formerly,'*p?ij the sooner we can brin
about a state of kino feedings betwee
the two sections, the better for ali coi
Finally', let us pray for the couoti
and ita rutera, that Cod may over ru
and direct them both in their legi
lative and executive acts. This
necessary if we desire to lead qui
and peaceable lives in all godliness at
honesty before God.
And now mar the God of all gra
pour upon us ?ll thc abundance of 1:
Spirit to guide us into the ways
truth and peace.

THE CONFEDERATE PRISONERS.
John Mitchell is treated very much in
the style of the more important rebs.
He subsists on Government army
rations, is closely guarded, and is not
allowed the wherewithal to manufac?
ture treasonable newspaper articles;
nor is he furnished with papers or auy
reading matter, save the Bible, or any
player book that he may desire. John
wiles away the weary hours of- bis
prison life by smoking. He brougbfa
pipe with bim, and is allowed tobacco.
No conversation is permitted with him,
nor does be court any. Thus far be
has showu himself rather taciturn than
otherwise. Clem Clay smokes with
philosophic indifference. He occa?
sionally addresses a pleasant remark to
bis guards. As a prisoner he has
given very little trouble. From the
beginning he bas subsisted on the prmy
ration. He eats but little, smokes :i
great deal, and has evidently made up
bis mind that neither fretting nor
grumbling will help hit. case, and thc
best course to be pursued is to take
things er.sily and quietly. Jeff. Davis
has fully recovered bis health. He
has not yet been returned to his first
diet, the array ration. His food if

such as will conduce most to bis health

has been restored, he too bas taken t<
