An Important Movement. The Mis
sionary Society of the Methodist Episco
pal Church, has just appropriated the
considerable sum of thirty-five thousand
dollars for an object which is of import
ance not merely to Methodism , but to
the country at large. It is proposed to
send preachers to those parts of the
Southern States now redeemed of rebel
rule, to recall the people to the church
and to the Union. The bishops are to
make at once a visitation in each of the
States ; and they will select and appoint
fit men to send amongst the Southern
people, who have been abandoned by
their ministers, who were in rebellion.
The Indianapolis Journal esti
mates the number of men who have vol
unteered during the past month at three
thousand, divided among the several
districts as follows: 1st, 150; 2d, 150;
3d, 300; 4th, 250; 5th, 400; 6th, 350;
7th, 350; 8th, 150; 9th, 400; 10th, 300;
11th, 200. We are not competent to
speak for other districts, but for the 1st
District the Journals estimates are too
small. More than 150 have been re
cruited within the past month in the
counties of Posey and Vanderburgh
alone. We feel safe in saying that over
two hundred men have volunteered in
three counties. In most of the counties
in this District great activity has been
displayed, and we think that at the least
calculation one-quarter of the men call
ed for have already been enrolled. But
we ought not to stop short of raising our
full quota. Therefore, let us work on
until that glorious consummation is
achieved.
We have now in the United
States at least two hundred and thirty
five general hospitals for the use of sol

four months of 1S62 there were treated
at our hospitals twenty thousand nine

wounds. The wounded of the British
army in the Crimean war was only a
little over twelve thousand, and their
entire hospital accommodations in three
years would not have sufficed for the
wounded at either of the battles of Shi-

A Mrs Ellen Wood of 422 John street,
Cincinnati, was burnt to death on Thurs

The report of the resignation of Gen.
Burnside, and the appointment of Gen.
Foster as his successor, is confirmed, and
Gen. Foster is on his way to East Ten

assigned to a command, probably with
Baltimore for headquarters.
President Lincoln is busily engaged
on his forthcoming message, and can see
but few visiters. Travelers, take no

the keepsake.
Surgeon General Hammond will visit

The returns of the Ohio soldiers is
changing the character of the elections
in many counties of that State. In the
Knox and Wayne Senatorial District" J.
C. Devin is elected, although there wa.s a
majority of 800 against him on the home
vote; and in the Ashland and Richland
District Col. Isaac Gass beats Kinney,
who had 604 majority on the home vote.
A good many of the soldiers' votes were
indorsed " draft"
Gen. Rosecrans has met with a severe

The funeral took place from the cathe

The Gazette, a secession sheet, has

The Cincinnati Commercial has a dis
patch from Cairo telling about two men
who, on Tuesday night last, disguised as
soldiers, went to the residences of two
citizens of William county, Illinois, and
demanded that they should go with them
to arrest deserters. The citizeni demur
red ; but the men threatened, represent
ing themselves to be part of the Provost
guard. Finally the citizens complied;
and, it is said, when they had proceeded
some distance in the woods, the appar
ent soldiers deliberately shot the farmers
dead, and left them on the ground.
The distilleries of the country are all

Circular to tne People of this Dio
cese by lit. Rev. Bishop Upfold.
Dear Brethren: The President of
the United States, having appointed
Thursday, the 26th of November, to be
observed as a day of Thanksgiving and
Prayer to Almighty God, throughout the
United States,' for all the blessings of
His merciful Providence, during the past
year, I hereby recommend the observ
ance of that day for that important duty,
by the clergy and congregations of this
Diocese.
In accordance with the Canon, I ap
point, at the celebration of Morning
Prayer, in addition to the service provid
ed in the Book of Common Prayer, the
annexed Prayer of Thanksgiving, to be
used, with the Thanksgiving Prayer in
that service, after the General Thanks
giving; together with the two Collects
heretofore set . forth in relation to our
National emergencies.
I also earnestly recommend that a col
lection be made on this occasion for the
relief of the destitute families of our
gallant soldiers in the field; and the con
tributions be paid over to the Sanitary
Committees in the several cities and
counties in the State.
George Upfold,
Bishop of Indiana.
