African Methodist Episcopal Church, A religious sect established in Philadelphia in 1816, by colored members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The first bishop chosen by the convention that founded the Church was the Rev. Richard Allen. In 1794, under his direction, the first church for colored Methodists in the United States was built in Philadelphia. The government and doctrine of the Church is substantially the same as that of the body from which it withdrew. Its territory is divided into two annual conferences, and it has a general conference which meets once every four years. In 1900 it reported as follows: Ministers, 5,559; churches, 5,775; and members, 673,504.

pectable individuals among the colored people of Philadelphia. Richard Allen, who had been a slave, purchased freedom with the proceeds of hould consent to render service, demanded exorbitant prices. But Bishop Allen and Rev. Mr. Jones never hesitated to go wherever they could be at rests upon their hunted race. A Southern speculator arrested Bishop Allen, and claimed him as a fugitive slave, whom he had bought runninan through the streets; and he merely said, in a respectful tone, Mr. Allen, you will soon come down to Alderman Todd's office, will you? ly four years previous; and everybody in Philadelphia knew that Richard Allen had been living there more than twenty years. Yet the speculatounblushingly that he was the identical slave they had purchased. Mr. Allen thought he ought to have some redress for this outrage; For, saidged in the debtor's prison.

his first offence, and he has conducted well during his confinement. His health is much impaired, and he has several times had a slight hemorrhage of the lungs. Allen's father was a regular teamster in the army during all the revolutionary war. Though poor, he has always sustained a fair reputation. He is now ninety years old, respectfully, but earnestly, to ask thy early attention to this case. The old man is confined to his bed, and so low, that he cannot continue many weeks. Unless Allen is very soon released, there is no probability that he will ever see him. I have no self-interested motives in this matter, but am influenced solely by consideratime, and because I know that what thou writest is always truth, and that the old man, before he lays him down to die, may behold the face of his son, I will restore Allen to his kindred. When thou comest to Albany, I pray thee to come and see me. Very respectfully thy friend, John young. The monitor within frequently impelled
The Dabney Artillery. --We are requested to return the thanks of Capt. Dabney, his officers and men, to Mrs. Capt Childress and Mrs. Chafin, for various courtesies received while on a tour of duty down the river. Their kindness presented a pleasing contrast to the conduct of some individuals, who charged them $1.50 per pound for butter, 45 cents per dozen for eggs, and other articles of food in proportion. We should not omit to say that this company has been presented, by Richard Allen, Esq., with a beautiful flag, which the members of the corps will take care not to disgrace. There is a time coming when the soldiers, as well as the community generally, will "mark and distinguish" the extortioners, but will remember with proud pleasure those whose patriotism has found an outlet in acts of liberality and kindness.

used by E. F. Baker & Co. in moulding and boring shell for the Government, was also entirely destroyed, together with a large assortment of valuable machinery, tools, materials, &c., for carrying on the business. This building belonged to Mr. Richard Allen, and as there was no insurance on it his loss will be quite heavy. The back part of the "Alabama or 290 Saloon," kept by Mr. Jas. McGehee, was damaged by fire and water to the extent of about five or six hundred dollars. This gentlemans assortment of mantels and paintings which were destroyed, will not be less than from $75,000 to $100,000. Baker & Co. estimate their loss at about $15,000; Mr. Woodward's will reach (in loss of tools, materials, &c.,) from $10,000 to $12,000; Mr. Allen (on building) about $15,000, and Mr. Alluise (on confectionaries &c.,) about $3000. Making in the aggregate one hundred and forty- five thousand dollars worth of property destroyed, on none of which, as far as we have heard, was there any insur
