Renewals have been coming in quite briskly; but there are still a large number of old subscribers to whom we are not now sending our Papers simply because their time is out and they have failed to renew their subscriptions. We are very sorry to part with any of our friends, but we are obliged to insist upon our terms-$3 per annum in advance. We beg that subscribers in every locality will “stir up the pure minds of their neighbors by way of remembrance,” and will send us new subscribers or the renewals of old ones. General Geo. D. Johnston of Alabama has been duly appointed gene-ral agent of our Society and authorized to travel in our interest, to collect money or material for us, to appoint local agents, or to act for us as occasion may demand. We deemed ourselves fortunate in securing the services of this gallant soldier and accomplished gentleman, and the result has fully justified our expectations. He has been canvassing Nashville with the most gratifying success, and now proposes to visit other cities and towns of Tennessee and Kentucky. We bespeak for him the hearty co-operation of all friends of the cause of truth.
