Methodist Conference--Education, &c.
Hampton. Va., Nov. 11.
The Methodist Protestant Conference is now in session.
It was to have met on yesterday; but owing to the election.
we suppose the delegates were prevented from attending sooner than to- day. The delegation is small, owing probably to the same cause.
Mr. J. B. Cary
's Academy is in a very flourishing condition, something like 120 scholars having entered up to this time.
Chesapeake Female College has about fifty scholars — rather a small number when we reflect upon the fact that there are accommodations sufficient for three times that number.--It is well located, healthy and accessible.
The weather has been very pleasant for more than a week; to-day it is raining, with every prospect of its continuing several days.
The Baptist Church here having been sometime without a pastor, on last Sabbath extended a call to Rev. G. F. Adams
, of Baltimore
It is thought he will accept. P.
