In I858 the increasing congregation
ot colored persons thadc it necessary to
enlarge their accommodations, and side
galleries were built ; at the same time
more comfortable . seals on the lower
floor were provided with a new pulpit
and the church plastered throughout.
It would be proper, and it affords me
the highest pleasure to state that no
branch of the christian church looked
more jealously after the spiritual inter
ists ot the colored people than these
good old Baptists. They certainly came
up tully to the requirements of their
sacred obligation In this connection, and
the good emanating from this source is
apparent to day in their lives and iii the
lives of their descendants. I have been
impressed by this tact in selecting ten
ants for my plantation, and wh?n one
applies tor a larm and the fact is de
veloped that he is in thc line ot this
gootl old descent, 1 have no hesitancy,
tn contracting with him. A very largel
per cent ot my tenants aro colored Bap-v
tisfs, and I have yet to find one with a
leprous spot. . 1. have given/ them a
bpiise pf worship and scbpol(h$ise, and

county: I have tried : him aha t.knovv
where ol I speak. I woiijdAlike very
much if time permitted to givd briefly a
sketch of an adiircs? delivercq by me
alter the war on the subject ot the pro
gnathous race, his origin, his ethnolo
gical peculiarities and his destiny-sui
lice it to say, that I believe that thqre.
is a supreme power controlling and
directing mundane aflairs, in wisdom,
justice and mercey, and that the presence
ot the negro in our midst was for a
higher purpose than mercenary con
siderations, and carried with it a grave
responsibility,. The responsibility ol
lopping off his savage instincts incon
sideration bf involuntary servitude and
fitting him by Christian civilization to
be used in the economy of God's provi
dence as a grand missionary force to
be returacd to his native country a
sealed book to missionary enterprise on
the part ol the white man, by reason of
its inhospitality of climate, and thus
carry to bis brcthtcn in that benighted
section the glad news of salvation. ' In
reviewing tire course of the Baptists
Churches in this connection and with
the view of determining it the proposi
tions advanced by mc were finding ex
presions in the experience of the colored
people, it is with congratulation and
without disparagement to.' the other
branches of God's church, which , at a
f?roper time I shall ventilate along this
ine, 1 state that they can be no longer
regurded as idle speculations, but wear
to day thc encouraging appendage to
a verified problem "Quod est demon
strandum, "
It is the intention ot thc writer at a
convenient season to collate and publish
all the facts in this relation to clear our
churches from the unwarranted and
wicked imputation that the coloredspeo
fileftamong us were without religious
nstrtiction. There is no doubt but
that the abuse ot the trust by the white
man antedated his emancipation by
many years, and filled our country with
sorrow, but I am proud to say that none
ot this evil can be lett at the door of our
churches, They discharged their duty
nobly, manfully and in such a spirit ot
Christ-like self abnegation as must in
spire in the hearts of thc colored peo
ple a sentiment of beautiful and fervent
pratitudc tor ail time i have no appre
hension for the safety ot our country as
long as the fundamental laws ot crea
tion are kept inviolate, and the doors of
God's temples rust not on their hinges.
To return,in 1860 the Lord graciously
visited and watered his garden afresh.

From the first'' there lyts been a
colored membership in this church ex
ceeding the white. Much.' regard has
been had tp their spiritual interests.
Special services and Sabbath Hchools
have been ^mploycd for their Instruction
and improvement, and at Saw Mill
where there has ever been a. large num
ber of them the word pf lite has been
statedly preached to them for theirbene
ht. For thirty years has our beloved
brother Beattie spent thei strength ot his
manhood and given the benefit, of his
ripe experience tc this class, ot our pupuL
tion. After the war brother Beattie
continued to serve these people until thc
relations,, of society having cUnbred the
negroes soon developed a disposition to
segregate and nave their owfi.liouscs ot
worships. The Baptist lt IhUs appears
discharged their duty to the letter in the
religious instruction ot the. negro and
thc dissolution ot thc tje that bound the
colored people to the mother church was
one not ol hostility to or ingratitude to
their first bcnetac.ion, but In obedience
to one ot those fundamente! ethnical
laws which were planted by the Creator
in the heart ot man for thc preservation
of civilization. As nearly ns can be
ascertained from the records since 183a,
the following statistic appears; whole
number ot white persons connected with
thc church 362; of this number there Na-S
didd in the fellowship of the church 118;
dismissed to oth?r Baptist cfiurch'cs 121;
excluded 36 which leif the membership
of the church at date ot old manuscript

they are trembling on the verge of the!

but twenty of those Who were members
in 1850 are members now.
It is sad to write the names ot our'
