The colored Presbyterians.

The resolutions adopted by the First (colored) Presbyterian Church say in part:

In view of his eminent piety, his fruitfulness in Christian labors, his willingness to render service, whether among the lowly and unlearned or among the influential and learned, we feel that our church, in common with his own Zion, has sustained a loss in the death of this Christian friend and brother.

The Presbyterian Church of Virginia, and all other Christian churches of the State deeply regret the death of Dr. Hoge, who, taken for all in all, was a Christian whose concern for the salvation of man was as broad as humanity.

As a church, we tender his family and the Second Presbyterian Church our sympathy, and this tribute of respect to the memory of the sainted man—of whom it may be said he

Was fashion'd to much honour from his cradle;
He was a scholar, and a ripe and good one;
Exceeding wise, fair-spoken, and persuading;

to those men who sought him, sweet as summer.
