o'clock, and was called to order by Rev. James

),as ably filled that position during the past sev
enteen years. In a brief bnt pertinent address,
he welcomed the delegates, and called pn Bev.
TIios. E. Skinner to open the proceedings witk
Rev. J- D. Huf ham, Secretary, then proceeded
to call the list of Churches and Associations, when
about fifty delegates were enrolled. Rev. John

an earnest desire to do all in their power to pro

the ablest men of denomination are present, and
the proceedings promise to be very interesting.

Mr. Editor : Permit me to call the at
tention of your readers to the call for aid by
the Kev. Mr. Murchison, of Columbia, S. C.
Charity i3 a good thing. Like a cloak, it
covens a multitude of sins. This people
have been hurrassed by the press parties of
the Confederacy, and have had a taste of
what others have suffered from the war by
the march of invading armies. Tet there are
communities worse off, and to them we should
give of our limited means. As the Editor of
the Progress in his issue of yesterday even
" We know of no better method of invest
ing our surplus capital, or spare change, than
in assisting to recreate the temples of God,
laid waste with tire and sword, by the vandal
hordes of Sherman, who swept, like the lo
custs of Egypt, over a defenceless country,
leaving destruction and desolation in their
wake. The women and children whom,
these noble warriors (?) so gallantly and he
roically fought, appeal to us ftir help and
succor. Assuredly we cannot turn a deaf
ear to their prayers and petitions.
They are our brethren an i triends, and
impoverished through the fiendish acts of a
brutal soldiery, acting under orders from a
commander who was a stranger to humanity
and a scourage to our country. Remember
also that those who give to the poor and
destitute lay up stores in Heaven, for all such
contributions are placed to our credit by the
Celestial Banker above, and on the final day
of reckoning we will be glad to find a bal
ance of good to our account. We sincerely
hope our citizens will subscribe liberally."
Charity should flow like our rivers to the
sea, diffusing benefits to all. " No pent up
Ltica. Cnanty should oe as oounuiess as
the ocean. I acknowledge the claims of the
poor people of Columbia, the very fountain
of States' Rights principles, the head and
front of secession. I do not forget to re
uiemler with gratitude that it was South
Carolina that precipitated the people of
eleven States into opposition to the Union,
and inaugurated our g orious war for inde
pendence. For these, and many other reasons, the
people of Columbia are deserving of our
sympathies and charity. Let our dead, slain
in the war, remain unhonored by any atten
tion at the hands of survivors. " Let the
dead bury their dead," is the literal quota
tion let the dead honor the dead by atten
tions to the graves of the. dead, of a dead
but holy cause, might be better. But while
Ave sympathise and give charity to those who
suffered in the march of the ruthless Sher
man, those who were robbed by those lamb
like followers of General Wheeler in this
Cify ought not to be forgotten. Then there
is the heroic and deserving people of Rich
mond, Va., whose property was destroyed by
the high-toned, chivalric Breckinridge and
Early, christian, God fearing Confederate
leaders whom a stern sense of duty compell
ed to destroy two dollars worth of property
for every one the ruthless Sherman destroyed.
Then there is the Yankee settlement and
town of Chambersburg, where churches were
burned. As our friend, the editor of the
Progress says, " assist in re-erecting the tem
ples of God." VIRGINIA.
Anduew Johxson's Services in Ten
nessee. The National Intelligencer of Sat
urday publishes the following letter from the
Secretary of War to Andrew Johnson, reci
ting, in pointed and vigorous tcinis, the na
ture of his perilous and important military
service during the war :
Washington Cjtt, March 3, 1805.
His Excellency Andrew Johnson, Vice Presi
dent elect :
Sir : This Department has accepted your
resignation as brigadier general and Military
Governor of Tennessee.
Permit me, on this occasion, to render to
you the thanks of this Department for your
patriotic and able services during the event
ful period through which you have exercised
the high trust committed to your charge. In
one of the darkest hours of the great strug
gle for national existence against rebellions
foes, the government called you from the
Senate, and from the comparatively safe and
easy duties of civil life, to place you in front
of the enemy, anil in a position of personal
toil and danger perhaps more hazardous than
was encountered by any other citizen or mil
itary officer of the United States. With
patriotic promptness you assumed the post,
and maintained it under circumstances of
unparalleled trials, until recent events have
brought safety and deliverance to your State,
and to the integrity of the constitutional
Union for which you so long and so gallant
ly perilled all that is dear to man on earth, j
That you may be spared to enjoy the new j
honors and perform the high duties to which
you have been called by the people of the
United States, is the sincere wish of one who,
in every official and personal relation, has
found you worthy of the confidence of the
government, and the honor and esteem of
Your obedient servant,
EDWIN M. STANTON.

National Circulation Issued. During

Washington, May 21st. Senate. The
Senate in deference to the physical inhability
of Mr. Fessenden to enter upon the discus
sion of the Reconstruction bill, as per agree
mcn. postponed its consideration till Wednes
The consideration of the Colorado bill and
Veto was also postponed.
The remainder of the session was devoted
principally to business relating to the District
House. The House to-day considered the
preamble and resolution of Mr. McClurg, of ,
Missouri, declaring the continued contumacy
in the seceding States renders it necessary to
exercise Congressional legislation, iu order
to give the loyal citizens of those States pro
tection in their natural and personal rights,
enumerated in the Constitution ; and in addi
tion thereto makes it necessary to keep on
foot a large standing army to maintain the
authority of Government: and whereas the
country is. already overburdened by a war
debt, incurred to defend the nationality
against an infamous rebellion, and as it is
neither just nor politic to inflict this vast ad
ditional expense on the peaceful industry of
the nation, therefore
Resolced. That it be referred to the Com
mittee on Reconstruction to inquire into the
expediency of levying contributions on the
seceding States to defray the extraordinary
expenses that would otherwise be imposed
on the General Government; and that said
committee be instructed to report by bill or
The House adopted the above by 73 against
1st. That it is the sense of this House that
all jnst and righteous governments are in

upon the subjects thereof, but to secure to
each and every individual the full, free and
untramelled exercise and enjoyment of all
those rights which God has bestowed upon
2nd. That the safety, happiness and pros
perity of the people require that just and
adequate penalties be annexed to the viola
tion of law, and that those penalties be in
flicted upon transgressors, not for the pur
pose of retaliation or revenge, but to insure
subordination and obedience.
3rd. That we will stand by-and sustain the
President in executing the laws of the United
States upon a sufficient number of leading
rebels in each of the States lately in insur
rection against the National Government to
vindicate the majesty of the law to sustain
the confidence of loyal people and warn the
refractory, for all time to come.
The tax bill was also discussed.
About fifty clerks were discharged yes
terday from the Treasury Department
grounds, incompetency and neglect of duty.
Their places will be supplied by disabled
soldiers from the large list of applicants al
ready on file in theDeparrment. This should
not, however, be considered as an encourage
ment for additional applications for position,
inasmuch as there are already several hun
dred petitions on file which will have prece
dence should other vacancies be made.
Northern capital is pouring into East
Tennessee, and especially at Knoxvillc and

The St. Louis Democrat of the 16th has
advices as to the progress of the heavy fleet
of boats now on their way to the head wa

eight steamers passed Sioux City. Tiierc

of next May,
"THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BANNER."
And in the commencement of this little work
of love, being boys, ourselves, may we not appeal
to every Sunday School boy, and" girl in North
Carolina to come np promptly to uid the under
taking. Iu our own State, there are very tnntry
Sabbath Schools, and from the best information '
wc have, the scholarship is large and increasing, .
and it is from them we look For that patronage
which is necessary to improve and keep floating,
this native standard which we propose for their
benefit. It is not for pecuniury gain that the
"Banner," is established; it has for its aim
higher objects, and if we succeed in our enter
prise, it will be to us in after life a source of great
satisfaction to know that, in our boyhood days,
we gave a helping band to Sunday Schools, the
preparatory Schools for places of high trust and
position, in the work of our Heavenly Father.
Its name sufficiently indicates the object which
is to control its editorial conduct. There is ne
cessity however for the lemark that it will not be
denominational, but alike open to all the Sabbath
Schools of this State for contributions, in which
there is no spice of sectarianism.
The " Banner " will be issued month) v on hand
some type, clear white paper and wiil contain
fourteen columns reading matter, quarto length.
