The Virginia Conference of the Meth?
odist Episcopal Church, South, as
staled In Sunday's Virginian, will meet
at Centenary Church, Richmond, one
week from to-morrow. , This body Is
one of the oldest, largest, and most in?
fluential of the annual conferences in
the entire South.
its territorial boundaries were first
j fixed In 1 TUG. but conference sessions
were held 111 Virginia for at least ten
years previous lo the "Christian Con?
ference" of 1TS4, which organized the
"Methodist Episcopal Church In Amer?
ica." In tho division of that church
In 1844. Virginia went with her sister
conferences of the South in to the now
organization formed lit Louisville. Ky..
1S45, and the first "General Conference"
of the new "Church South" was held
on her territory at Petersburg, Va.,
In May, 1840.
Another was held In Richmond May.
ISSli. forty years later. At that session
Charles B. Galloway, of Mlsslss'ppi,
was elected and ordained Bishop, and
he Is lo preside over the annual confer?
ence which meets here November 13th.
Bishop Galloway Is about forty-live
years old; a man of tine presence, mag?
netic manner, superb voice, and is
uulte ail eloquent divine, lie has been
Blsliop fur nine years, but this is his
llrst presiding in Vlrglnln.
The conference is composed of 225
preachers "111 full connection," besides
twenty-live more who are yet "on
trial." and may be "discontinued" by a
majority vote. They have no vote in
the deliberations of the body. There
are likewise forty-four lay members,
four from each presiding elder's dis?
trict, who have equal rights of partici?
pation in business, "except such as
relates to ministerial character," The
greater part of these 21)4 persons will
Of the clerical members fifty- elghl
only were admitted before the civil
war. Two of these, one aged eighty
live and the other eighty, were admit?
ted previous to 1840?namely, In 1833
uml is:l9. These arc the venerable
.lames A. Riddlck and Jacob Manning.
The secretarial Bl?ff Is elected at each
session, but the chief secretary has
been re-elected for thlrly-llve sessions,
has been assistant for live previous ses?
sions, ami Is the oldest secretary In
continuous service In the South, If not
also in the whole world.
lie Is Rev. Paul Whltehead, of Rich?
mond, presiding ehler of the West
Richmond District. The principal as?
sistant is the Rev. Samuel S. Lambeth,]

Much 'it the Important business of
tlie Conference is transacted by boards.
i)f these th>- most important Is the
joint Board of Finance, of which Rev.
A. C. Brown, D. !>.. has long been the
cnlclenl chairman. .He is ns much a
'.'fixture" of the conference as Dr.

The well-known custom of the Metho?
dist Church Is to arrange annually the
appointments of their clergy, no one
of whom, except editors connected
with church affairs, and a few other ex?
ceptional eases, can remain in one
place more than four years successive?
ly, These appointments, the most in?
teresting nnd exciting work of the nn
nual conference, nre made by the Bish?
op In consultation with the presiding
elders, of whom there are eleven.
At present these officers, known by
usage ns "the Council." are Revs. J. P.
Garland. A. G. Brown. Paul Whltehead,
C. E. Watts, J. J. Laffertv (who was ap?
pointed temporarily to fill the place of
Rev. Wm. E. Payne, deceased, on July
30th last). Oscar Littleton. J. E. Des
hnzo. T. H. Campbell. Joseph II. Rid
alck, Joseph Hi Amiss, nnd William P.
Wright. Some of these have been in
olllce only three years; others, in vari?

Of the ministers of the Conference,
twenty-seven an? not appointed to sta?
tions, being In part, or altogether, dis?
abled for service, and placed In the
"supernumerary" or "superannuated"
relation. The latter class (22 out of the
27). when needy, receive on appro?
priation annually from the "Conference
collection," nnd some of them, as well
as other cases of need, are helped by
the Relief Society.
It Is said that there may he a large
number of changes in Richmond, but
nearly all of the present pastors In this
section will be returned. It is pre?
dicted by several persons, among whom
are those whose opinions in such mat?
ters arc worth something, that Rev.
Dr. Coke Smith, now pastor of Granby
Street Church, Norfolk, will succeed Dr.
Sledd at Centenary, Richmond. There
are others, however; ..who ? send Dr.
Smith to Monumental,. Portsmouth,
und Rev. Mr. Betty io Centenary, Rich?
mond. Mr. Betty is now at Court
Street Church, Lynchburg, to which
charge, It la generally conceded. Dr.
Sledd will be sc*-* "- ???e *inte
makcrs have assigned Rev. Dr. Young
to Granby-Street. '
During the session of the Conference
a grand Epworth League rnlly will be
held, at which Bishop Galloway and
other prominent divines will speak. It
Is probable that measures wilt be in?
stituted looking to the formation of a
Stale League. If such an organization
Is not really effected.
The lay delegates elected from this
section are as follows'
Norfolk District?W, W. Vicar. C. W.
Pettit and J. \V. Gran by, of Norfolk; E.
A. Kcllani. of Princess Anne.
Portsmouth District?George I.. Ne?
