The Sabbath School Convention of
tlie Holston Conference 'of 'the M.K.'I
Church.' Soulh.assemblcd on Thursday
of last week, in the Matliodist Church
on Virginia Hill at 10 o'clock. With a
commendable pride and pleasure, the
people of Bristol had made systciaat
ic prcparatiou for the entertainment
of ihe delegate who "oxi their afriyij
at the passenger exchange were met
by the comhiittce of arrangements, of
which Mr. Slack, of the Cowr,' was
Chairman, and were assigned to com
fortable .quarters with the citizens of
the town, without . regard to church
connections." The' church building
bore irrefutable testimony of the fact
that fair hands had been busy upon its
decorations. , Wreaths of evergreens
were trailed in festoons upon the
walls, and over the pulpit was inscrib
ed in letter of hemlock foliage

was chosen ' president.' ' Col. II. S.

Vice President and' Dr. Cunningham
of Abingdon Second Vice President:
Wc were unable to be present during
the morning exercises. In the eve
ning Dr. Ila good, editor of the ;T7t
tor, and compiler of the Sunday
School literature, preached a sermon
which wes able, appropriate and for.
tiblc. A single point made by the
speaker is worthy of special allusion
viz: that the failure of certain pa r J
ents to succeed in the culture of their
children is due to the fact that they
govern by restraint aud fail to incul.
cate and form dturadtr.

The principal subject of discussion
was the method of electing or ap
pointing superintendents. After
several amendments, the tense of
the Convention was declared to fa.
vor their nomination by the Quarter
ly Conference's to be confirmed by
the Schools, and a reoUition passed,
asking the annual Conferences to
memorialize the General Conference
in favor of the suggestion of a uni
form method of appointment.
Dr. Cunningham read an essay,
on the best method of securing the
attendance of young people and chil
dren, upon divine worship, lie fa
vorcd the plan of oppcrating upon
the parenls.: ' ' "- '-"'
Prof. Gale suggested, that scats
should be made to suit the children
specially, and insisted that the scats
provided for adults were torture to

they were young enough. -

Dr. R. A Young and Rev, Mr.
Kmony, were' introduced, but Dr
Young declined to participate in the
discussion, though appealed to for the
secret cf his success with the chil
dren. Said he had no difficulty.
Rev.'R. N.-Price read an essay
a most terse, lucid .and '.admirable
one on the subject of Union Sunday
Schools, lie favored denominational
ones where practicable. - 1
Rev. J. A. Lyon, of Knoxville,
read an essay on " our uniform 'y

to b present during its delivery. Dr.

The various Essays had been regu

that they be published iu that jour

' Mr. Ncal seemed wliol ly . opposd
to the use of instrumental rouble. .'
Mr. Price was opposed to publica
tion, on the ground that instrument
al music was very unpopular in many
communities. This was a controver
ted point, and we hnd better go slow
oh controverted ground; he was like the
Justice who would not isue a warrant,
because "there was something com
bustible in the case."
Mr. Robtson respected Prof Gale,
but would not endorse his doctrine
touching instrumental music. : It was
unscriptUFal and untenable. We
might as well go on and get praying
machines aud 'preaching . machines,
and do away with the good old service
MriSuMns said," if he could fl!nd a
niachiue that could preach' well, he
would set It to work If be could. He

The "question should not come up here.
Home one in "Wise Co., might regard

lie had prepared no brief, but he
would in the future prepare for it.

Yes if God Commands it.) He would
discusn it in the pnpers. Bro. Price
would publish sensible articles pro and

tuned t the praise of Jehovah, was
tlie sublimest music tliat ever reached
these ears. Then atl can praise. '
Mr. SiUin, recognized the march
of thought and sentiment. ' We should
decide this question. If It be wrong,
show it If right let it be asserted.

Him to the sound of the trumpet,

J'rof. Gale. Said he had r never In
his rebellion against God, -forgotten
the sublime strains of the old,Churcb
Organ he had known in his childhood.
He had hated God in his - wanderings
over the face of the earth. He had
seen Bro. Cunningham in China, and
hated him. . Had cursed everything
holy, and - had rebelled in sin, but
when he again heard in a strange
land, the mellow notes of the Organ,
the scenes of his childhood had come
up before his eyes, and its memories
tilled his heart until he wept
and repented, aud became a
child of Jesus. .
Mr. Suttin. Are we not the same
sort of men as those who worshiped
God in the days of David? Are we
better and holier than the 6hepherd

keep them confined to a small inclos

sometimes the otherir ;Tbey are ques

tirely away from .grass.'.' til" they can
live upon it wholly, t urge; that the ap
petite of the cows is so much affected
by a taste of grass,, tnat they will so
far lose their relish for hay as not to
eat enough to keep up their flesh and
strength, and consequently are best off
not to taste it at all, . till there is
enough for them to subsist on wholly.
This is ope view of the , question.
Those who prefer letting their cows
