You speak to me in fiedi' co1d calm toe ,
And I reply in tones as calmly co!,;
Yet all the while myx:ear' i. ;-d .nd lone
To miss those unrn: :red, ovin tones o od
I've tried to teach this wa i, h irt of nine
To look on thee with cold inire:ice no;
But when I see those blue-love eves of thine,
My heart rebels, rebelsa: I wiTut bow.
They say I'm cheerful, yes, tha't I am 'ar,
They know not then low uuch the -eart can
Ah! know they not w: 7urning a ay

Rcsswmv.r.a:, Ky., May 25, 1866.
In the Convention to-day, D)r. Techenor, of
Alabama, souiitted a report and address up
on the wject of :ffordinrg religions instrue.
ion to tihe colored pop)ulation of the South,
te enucouragemnen tof day schools among them,
ard tihe education of colored preachers by thle
Baptist pastors. T1his report clicited some
discussion, but it was the unanimous senlti
met of the CoTlven:tion that the former mas
ters of the slaves were their proper instruc
tors, and that BaptLists, above all others,
hould actively and energetically exert ther
selves in tihe matter.
Messrs. Mcintosh, of Alabamua, and Pomn
dexter, of Virginia, alluded to the ab.surd pre
judice existing against teaching .the blacks.
Tey could see no degradationl in it.
1)r.. Crawford, of Georgetowna College, spoke
of the laws formerly existing in Georgia, pro
hbiting even owners to teach their slaves.
ie an:1 his children had violated the law, for
it was a law apinst Gcd. The report was
adoted without oppositon.
A preamble and resolution defining the
on'mon of the cannon upon the sulject of re
i'irus liber'ty, was in tr'oduce.l by, A. P. Wil
liams> of Missouri. It reasserts the great car
ija' an d fun darnen tal p'rinrci ples of Baptist
fihwich have ever been in an tagonism to
pe'rsecion f>r coniscience' saue.
Th"e declaration of opinion gpre rise to a
diessi on of very. general interest. The Mis
snuiri del rentes were opposed to any p'er sonna
alluions5 t~o themiselves er the peu ion
tey have uniidergne and are no 'w suil1erl g.
Ilut the Convention preferred to express its
sympathiy wi th its Missonri brethiren and its
detestationl of the "despotism"' that prevails
Speeches were made by Dr. Fuller, of B:i
tjimore, and Dr. Burrows, of Rliuod., Pr.
Filler gave his pernail experience in the
rmidst of civ I w: a.d how lie hadl obeyedl tihe
laws of tile Um tedl Sates, not fur paitr iotisml,
but for religion, having stated this to the au
thorities at Woiiington when he was threat
eied with imoisonmenCrt.
IDri. Burrows, of Richmond, staited that he
had nothing to repent of in what hec had said,
or though t, 0or done, during the past iVe years
and that to no mranl livmg~ wvould he ever make
ac'knowledgmencuts, or ask pardon of any but
tle Lord of all.
Professor Boyce, of South Carolina, who
w as, for mrothls~fterhis State seceded, a warm
Unionist, but nfterwtards a stafl' officer, spoke
upon the subtject of soul liberty. It was, he
said, Bib,le doctrine, as well as Bait ist doc
ti ne, and should be reassertcJ arnd reinstated
by the Conven tion. This liscuission gave oc
casion to the most spirited debates of the ses
sio. and there was eviden tly much feeling on
tre imiportant gnestion of mriilitary arid civil
interference wvith religZinas affairs. The Con
vention will not adjourn before to-morrow eve
