African Methodist Episcopal Church,
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.

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.
