An England appointment.

--The ladies of the First Baptist Church, of this city, having placed in the treasury of the Colportage Board enough to support a colporteur to labor in the hospitals in and around this city, Rev. Robt. Ryland, D. D., has been appointed to the work, and is now prosecuting it with that energy which has ever characterized him in the pulpit, as well as when presiding over the institution of which he has been President for so many years. A better appointment could not have been made, and we feel rejoiced to be able to announce that a gentleman so long and so favorably known has devoted himself to this field. We do not see how the ablest and best clergymen in the South can do more for the war than by devoting themselves to the moral culture of the soldiers.
