ut soldier, for I have seen the men for whom I have preached, with whom I have prayed, and whom I have seen presiding at Baptist associations, fully panoplied for the war. The self-denial of volunteers to serve in this war is unmistakably manifest iing to this subject, says: The Rev. Messrs. Atkinson, Presbyterian; Fitzgerald and Smedes, Episcopal; James and Skinner, Baptist; J. W.

for papers. One would say, I am from Alabama, and want an Alabama paper, and he would be presented with the South-west Baptist. Another would say, Can't you let me have the Christian Index? That's the paper I read at home. Others would desire the Confederate Baptist, others the Herald, etc. You may judge of the desire for religious papers, when I assure you that hundreds of applicants daily supply themselves at this depository. When a sick man walks as far as from the hospital to this readevery State, not cut off from us by the enemy, furnish papers for this hospital? The Biblical Recorder and Confederate Baptist, once sent here, have ceased to come. Why is this? The Christian Index, Religious Herald and Southern Baptist come witBaptist come with tolerable regularity; but never in sufficient numbers to supply the demand. Every Georgian wants the Index—and so of other soldiers; each wants to see a paper from his own dear State. There are some signs of religious awakening among the soldiers

It so happened that Brother Lacy's regiment came from a strong Baptist community, and that a large proportion of the converts insisted upon going down into the water, and he never failed to send for me or some other Baptist chaplain, and to show every Christian courtesy in the premises. He would go with us to the water's edge, join heartily in the service of song, and be the first one to greet the young converts as they came up out of to do all in my power to help them serve our common Master and reach the home of our common Father above. And when we Baptist chaplains were called on to assist young converts of our charges to unite with other denominations, I trust we were not

the Lord blessed his labors, and soon the chapel was crowded and the theatre deserted. In the great revival that followed, the owners of the theatre and some of the actors, professed conversion, the plays were suspended, and Brother Broaddus was invited to hold his services in the theatre, as that was a larger and more comfortable building than the chapel. He readily consented to do so, and begun his first service by saying, in his own quaint way: My friends, I am only a plain old country Baptist preacher, and have been opposing theatres all of my life. I never was in one before, and if any one had told me that the time would come, in my old age, when I should myself go upon the stage, I should have taken it as a personal insult.

After the sermon, some fifty or sixty of them, I should think, came forward with soldierly promptness, at the invitation of the chaplain, for conversation and prayer. An inquiry-meeting is held for them every morning. At that time i
