Baptist General Association--Second day's session.

--After devotional services reports on various interesting subjects were presented and discussed.

Rev J B Jeter read a document on the state of the country which deserves a place in the columns of every paper throughout the country. It was adopted as the utterance of the Virginia Baptists on the great issues before us.

Rev A E Dickinson presented a report on Army Colportage. Eighty missionaries have been in the employ of the Board, whose operations he superintends. They have baptized one thousand five hundred soldiers, while as many more, converted through their instrumentality, have united with other denominations.

The Board had published during the year about thirty five millions of pages.

Rev. A H Sands offered resolutions on behalf of the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, which were advocated by Rev W E Hatcher, the agent of the Board for Virginia.

Rev J B Taylor, Corresponding Secretary of Foreign Missions, represented that department as being in a healthy condition.--The Baptist Missionaries in China and Africa write encouragingly, though cut off from their Southern supporters.

Rev A E Dickinson read the report in reference to the children of deceased soldiers. The Association determined at once to provide for the maintenance and education of such. The following committee was appointed to carry out the views of the Association on this subject A E Dickinson, J B Jeter, J L Barrows, W F Broadus, Colin Rasa, Ro L Montague, and Wellington Goddin.

After a pleasant but brief session the Association adjourned sine die.
