Sntday Stoning, November 17,1867.
Methodist BpUoop?! Oh?U^fcv;<
A statement is published from o
careful compilation of the summa?
ries of the official statistical re ta rna
from the several annual conferences
of tho Methodist Episcopal Church,
which exhibits ? marvollous progress
during tho past year. We condense
some of those statistics, as they will
doubtless be of interest to many of
'S oes readers.
^There are sixty-eight annual eon*
ferenecs, being on increase of fonr
ov.?r the previous year, This in?
crease has been obtained by extend
ir g the work in the South since, the
c!o5? Ibo war. The new confer?
ences organised are "Virginia and
North Carolina, Texas, Gk Drgia and
Alabama. The records show the
? number of traveling preachers to be
7,988-an inorease over last year of
412; local preachers 8,930-?a in?
crease of888; members 1,144,768-an
increase of 112,579.
The number of churches is 11,138
-an increase during the year of 676;
number of parsonages 8,570-an in?
orease of 356. The total value of
those church edifices and: parsonages
is estimated at $41,012,479-being an
inorease for the year of $6,097,517.
The increase in parsonage property
alone is nearly $1,000,000. The cen?
tenary returns of collections from
thirty-so von conferences foot up a
total of $6,141,027. It is estimated
that, when all the returns aro in, the
amount will be over $7,000,00o! The
- reports from Sunday schools show a
very encouraging advance. Thero
are over 1,000,000 pupils, under the
supervision of about' 175,000 officers
A table is published, showing the
comparative progress of the church
by decades from the year 1776. We
have not room for this table; bnt to
show the wonderful growth of the
denomination, would state that, in
1776, it had 24 traveling preachers
and 4,921 members,. and that, in
1866, it had 7,576 traveling preachers
and a membership footing np 1,082,
By the withdrawal and separation
of Southern conferences in 1844,
organizing the Methodist Episcopal
. Church, South, tho M. E. Chnroh
lost 1,345 traveling preachers and
495,288 members; and yet, so rapid
was the growth and increase of the
church during the decade, that, at its
close, two years after the separation,
there was a net gain of 654 preaohers
and a lack of only 5,874 members of
making up the number lost.
We have no statistics of the M. E.
Church, South, which, when added
to the above figures, would doubtless
show Methodism to be one of the
most extensive of the Christian
churches in thia country. We hope
yet to see the two sectional branches
re-united, as it evidently would be
not only advantageous to the church,
but would be an advance step to?
wards reconciliation between the peo?

A high rout-a holo in your hat.
The New Torie World nae some?
what startled the political partie* of
its section by an ?ditorial, proposing
anew "path to p^soe.*' It propos?e
a national conference, composed of
men of moderation and character,
representing all tho varions interests*
The South, it says, should bo repre?
sented by snob men as Wade Hamp?
ton, Alexander H. Stephens, Gov.
Orr, Bx-Oov. Brown, W. O, Hives,
Gen. Dick Taylor, Gen. Longstreet,
and others of similar moderation and
standing. Without going beyond its
own vieinity, it ventures to name
Hamilton Fish, W. O. Bryant, Henry
Ward Beecher. and Horace Greeley,
as men who would meet the Southern
representatives in amicable diannn.

The measures proposed by the
World are Substantially these: To
require of the negroes a five years*
probation, from the date of their
emancipation, as we do of the more
intelligent white immigrants who
oome among ns from the despotisms
of the Old World; and then admit
the first generation on a very small
property qualification; and in the
second generation, when a majority
of heads of families will probably
have becomo property holders, make
the suffrage universal. Universal
amnesty is also proposed, and also
the adoption of several of the pro?
visions of the Confederate Constitu?
These suggestions, at the first
blush, all appear very feasible; but
we have little faith in national con?
ferences of an informal and unau?
thorized character. The Philadelphia
Convention of last year, whoso bads
and blossoms, as exhibited in the
moving spectacle of Massachusetts
and Sooth Carolina in loving em?
brace, promised such rich fruit,
proved to be utterly barren of fruit.
And this was when the simple "con?
stitutional amendment" was pending
before the South. Now the gap has
been immensely widened between the
two sections, and an informal confer?
ence, suoh as that proposed by the
World, would be utterly powerless to
accomplish anything in the desirable
result aimed at.
The shortest way to reconciliation
and re-union is for Congress to open
that old document, commonly called
"the Constitution of the United
States," and read the last linc or two
of the fifth article thereof,'viz: "That
no State, without its consent, shall be
deprived of its equal suffrugo iu the
Senate." Let Congress do this, und
"govern itself accordingly," and it
will prove to be the most efficient
remedy for our present political de?
DIVISION OP PICKENS DISTRICT.
The following petition, as wo learn
from the Keowee (hurter, of the 16th
inst., will be circulated and signed
for presentation to tho State Conven?
"To THE HONORABLE THE MEMBERS
OF THE STATE CONVENTION OF SOUTH
CAROLINA: The humble petition of
the undersigned, citizens of the Dis?
trict of Pickens, respectfully showeth
to your honorable body, that tho
District of Pickens comprises, as is
well-known to your honorable body,
an area extending from the Suluda to
the Tugaloo River, a distance of
sixty miles, nod from thc Anderson
line to the North Carolina lino, u dis?
tance of forty miles; und contains a
population, uccording to tho lost
State census, exceeding 20,000, less
than 5,000 of whom are blacks; that
the body of this population resides
on the Tugaloo and Saluda, and'tho
streams flowing rospeotively into
those rivers; and that, to renell the
Court House, tho mass of tho citi?
zens must travel from fifteen to thirty
miles, crossing for tho greater length
of their way a continual succession of
hills; that the village of Pickens con?
tains only thirteen families, with no
prospect of permanent improvement;
that the country surrounding the
Court Houso for muny miles being
extremely brokon and barren aud in?
capable of supporting a village popu?
lation of a few hundred, tho town
nan never prosper or afford tc thc
p?oplu oi the District tho advantages
of a central place of trade; that, in
the opinion of your petitioners, wero
the Di-triot divided by tho line sepa?
rating kho two militia regiments into
two Judicial District H, a flourishing
town in the midst of a fertile and
populous region would spring up iu
each, which would give new impetus
to the enterprise, and greatly pro?
mote the convenience, prosperity und
happiness of the people.
"Therefore, your petitioners re?
spectfully pray that your honorable
body will consider their interest, and
divide tho said District into two Ju
dioial and Election Districts."

EDITO?IS: I have just seen
a copy of tbe Charleston Daily News,
containing an extract from an edito?
rial of tho Augusta Okronide and Sen
timi, purporting to be the substance
of remarks made by me afc a meeting
of the stockholders of the Colombia
I and Auguste Railroad Confpany, held
in the city of Angosta, last week,
together with certain editorial com?
Hearing, on the, morning of the
meeting, it was currently reported
thai the work on the road had stop
5ed, and that the decision of Judge
loses was referred to us, I took occa?
sion to state that tho case before
Judge Moses was an application on
behalf of th? South Carolina Rail?
road Company for a certiorari, to or?
der tho City Council of Columbia to
certify the proceedings in a suit
decided by the Mayor to the
Circuit Court; that I did not think
the subject matter of the controversy
then properly before the Judge; and
that the Columbia and Angnsta Rail?
road Company was not a party to the
snit; and. therefore, not bound by
the decision. I stated that I had
been informed that the Judge was a
stockholder and director of the Sonth
Carolina Railroad Company. I stat?
ed the facts as I understood them,
without drawing any inferences or de?
ductions, and had no notion or inten?
tion to do Judge Moses, or any other
person, any wrong; and, if made sen?
sible that I have, 1 will gladly correct
it. I am for the first time informed
of the fact, as stated by the editor of
tho News, that the City Council of
Columbia, is the Columbia and Au?
Tho other remarks of tho editor are
uncalled for and illogical. I trust
that I am too well known for any ono
to entertain the idea that I would
offer insult to the Judiciary of South
Carolina, or any member thereof. Its
ability, integrity and purity of char?
acter, justly entitle it to the affection
and admiration of the country.

tion turned on California and getting
rich. Tom-remarked that if he
was in California he would, instead of
working in the mines, waylay some
rich miner who had a bag full of gold,
kuock out his brains, gather up the
gold and skedaddle. One of the
young ladies present quietly replied,
that he had better gather up the
brains, as he evidently stood in more
need of that article than of gold.
Tom subsided for the balance of the
evening. " ' ;

Journal of Health says:
"When a person faints away, in?
stead of yelling out like a savage, or
running to him to lift him up, lay
him at full length on his bock on the
floor, loo.se the clothing, push the
crowd nway, ao as to allow the air to
reach him, and let him alone.' Dash?
ing water over a person in a simple
fainting flt is a barbarity. The phi?
losophy of a fainting fit is that the
heart fails to send the proper supply
of blood to the brain. If the per?
son is erect, that blood has to be
thrown up hill; but if lying down, it
has to bo projected horizontally,
which requires less power, as is ap?
