J. William Jones, Christ in the camp, or religion in Lee's army, Chapter 1: religious elements in the army. (search)
young men have written home that they daily read their Bibles, and are seeking preparation for the judgment. Some religious soldiers state that such is the pious influence in their companies, they believe themselves improved instead of injured by the camp. O that this could be said of all! Rev. Dr. Cross writes from the Walker Legion, near Fredericksburg, to the Nashville Christian Advocate: A young man who, being slightly unwell, has spent a few days under the hospitable roof of Rev. Dr. Broaddus in town, returned to camp this morning happily converted to God. When I said to one of the Edgefield boys it was time for all hands to cease swearing and begin praying, he replied: I stopped the former when I enlisted, and am now trying to practise the latter. Another, who had been very profane at home, has never been known to utter an oath since he left Nashville. The Southern Christian Advocate thinks that there is at least one advantage for evangelical effort in the present asp

to this reading-room to solicit a paper, we may be assured that he will make a good use of it, reading and pondering almost every word. I also spent a Sabbath in Charlottesville and, with Dr. W. F. Broaddus, attended services at the hospital, where a large and attentive congregation listened to a sermon from the text, Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Many an eye was moistened as the preacher urged the acceptance of the blessed invitation. Dr. Broaddus is doing a grand work among the sick and wounded at this point. I was astonished to see how many soldiers he was acquainted with, knowing their names, where they came from, etc. The greater part of his time is spent among them. I feel assured that the Church will, as far as possible, release Brother Broaddus from pastoral visits, as he can be so much more useful in the hospitals, It will be gratifying to them to know that their loss in this matter is the gain of those to whom, under Go

d Publication Board, located in this city, from the pen of Rev. A. M. Poindexter, D. D., Corresponding Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, one of the most popular and eloquent of our Southern divines. The reading of this tract reminds us of some of the most earnest and fervent appeals of Baxter and Alcine, and we predict for it an immense circulation. We understand that the same Society are expecting soon to publish tracts written by Rev. Wm. J. Hoge, of Charlottesville, Va; Rev. T. G. Jones, D. D., of Norfolk; Rev. W. F. Broaddus, D. D., of Fredericksburg, and Rev. H. H. Tucker, D. D., Professor of Ancient Languages in Mercer University, Georgia. We hail with delight every such publication. Long enough have we been relying upon the bloodthirsty clergy of the North for religious books. It will be worth all the war has cost us of treasure and of blood if the publications of the North can be superceded by the rich thoughts of our own divines.
New tracts for soldiers. --Rev. A. E. Dickinson has placed upon our table the following tracts, which have just been issued; "In Camp," by Rev. W. F. Broaddus, D. D; "Why Will Ye Die?" by Rev. A. M. Pointdexter, D. D.; "Don't Swear," by Rev. J. B. Jeter, D. D., and "Your Soul — How to Save It," by a layman. These publications will be followed by a tract written by Rev. V. T., Moore, D. D, of this city; Rev. Dr. Petrie, Presbyterian Pastor in Montgomery, Ala; Rev. Dr. Hamilton, (Methodist,) Mobile, Ala., and Rev. P. Slaughter, (Episcopal,) Chaplain of a Virginia regiment. We are pleased to know that Rev. Mr. Dickinson accomplished much good in his recent visit to the South, and returns inspired with new hope in behalf of colportage.
Return of Released hostages. On Thursday last nineteen citizens of Fredericksburg, who were carried to Washington some weeks since as hostages, returned home. Among them were Mr. Slaughter, Mayor of the city, T. B. Barton, Attorney for the Commonwealth, and Rev. W. F. Broaddus. They agree in the statement that there was great excitement in Washington, officials being imprisoned, and arrests being made rapidly.
the breaking out of the war. The field of the labors of our missionaries is now in the possession of the enemy. Two feeble churches in our lines having appealed for aid, the necessary funds were contributed by the First and Second Baptist Churches of the city of Richmond. Various resolutions were presented, when, on motion, a special committee of nine was appointed to consider all the resolutions offered relative to the State Mission Board, Dr. Jeter chairman of said committee. Dr. W. F. Broaddus read the report of the committee on the subject of the best methods of giving religious instruction to the colored people. The committee refer to the manifest improvement which has been made in Virginia in the religious and moral condition of our colored people within the past thirty or forty years, instead of dreams and visions, as was formerly the case. We now hear from the colored people who join our churches an intelligent account of the work of grace in their hearts, accompa

The education of disabled soldiers and soldiers children — an important question. Richmond, Va., January 1, 1865. At the annual meeting of the Baptist General Association of Virginia, in June, 1864, the following persons were appointed a committee to provide for the education of the children of deceased and disabled soldiers, namely: Colin Bass, Esq.; Wellington Goddin, Esq.; Rev. A. E. Dickinson, Hon. R. L. Montague, J. B. Jeter, D. D.; J. L. Burrows, D. D.; and W. F. Broaddus, D. D. The committee have matured a plan of operations which, it is hoped, will greatly further the object. They propose, not to originate schools, but to patronize such as now exist, or may hereafter be brought into existence; to limit their efforts, except in special cases, to aid in giving a good English education; and, in making their appropriations, to be controlled by neither sectarian, sectional nor social distinctions. It has been determined also to assist soldiers, disabled in the Confed
