God are in the harness laboring for the salvation of souls. Our meeting is still in progress. Pray for us. E. B. Barrett, Chaplain Forty-fifth Georgia Regiment. How the memories of those days crowd upon me, as I sit in my quiet study twenty-three years after those stirring scenes. Those bright days before the opening of the campaign, when our camps were vocal with God's praises and hundreds of our brave boys were turning to the Lord—those days of constant battle, carnage, death, when Lee withstood Grant's overwhelming force from the Wilderness to Cold Harbor, and from Cold Harbor to Petersburg, and left hors de combat more of General Grant's people than he himself had—those long, weary days in forty miles of entrenchments, when the men in gray were worn away by attrition, and the thin line was stretched until it broke—and amid it all the precious seasons of worship, the realization of the presence and blessing of Jesus, and the assurance that God's Spirit was ever present in <

kout, Fort Delaware, Elmira, Johnson's Island, and other points), and we have a grand total of at least 15,000 soldiers of Lee's army who professed faith in Jesus during the four years of the war. Rev. Dr. Bennett (Great Revival in the Southern Ad the value of the revival in promoting the efficiency of the army. If these figures are correct, then the estimate for Lee's army ought to be increased to at least 50,000, as fully one-third of the converts were in that army. I am fully satisfi? Most certainly there was. I have been very unfortunate if, in endeavoring to portray vividly the power of religion in Lee's army, I have been understood as representing that the millennium dawned upon us, or that wickedness and vice were entire in hope; his spirit rose to God. I recall, says Dr. Granberry, an interview with the sweetspirited and gallant Captain James K. Lee, of Richmond, Virginia. How glad I am, said he, as he gave me a cordial grasp, to shake the hand of a brother in
d on the hearts of careless and irreligious persons. I have known many noble specimens of the Christian soldier, said Rev. Dr. John C. Granbery, then chaplain of the 11th Virginia regiment, afterwards Superintendent of Methodist missionaries in Gen. Lee's army, whom the soldiers will never forget on account of his zeal and faithfulness; I shall never cease to remember with admiration one of the earliest victims of this war, Major Carter Harrison, of the 11th Virginia. He was an earnest servantriptural promise; now of his country, and then of his family; and often arose in a holy ejaculation to God. His flesh rests in hope; his spirit rose to God. I recall, says Dr. Granbury, an interview with the sweet-spirited and gallant Captain James K. Lee, of Richmond, Va. How glad I am, said he as he gave me a cordial grasp, to shake the hand of a brother in Christ! I referred with sympathy to his intense sufferings. With emphasis he answered, Oh, they are nothing to the sufferings which

Captain Davis enlisted in Company B., First Virginia Infantry, Captain James K. Lee, April 21, 1861. He was soon afterwards promoted to sergeant and served as such at the first battle of Manassas. In September following, he was made first lieutenant of his company and on the 26th of April, 1862, after the death of CaptaCaptain Lee, succeeded him in the command. At the second battle of Manassas he was wounded, taken prisoner and carried to Johnson's Island. Captain Davis, after returning to his command, was again taken prisoner at Sailor's creek, and a second time incarcerated on Johnson's Island. After the war he went with Major J. B. Ficklen to San Antonio, Texas, and with him established a transportation line which was operated by them for several years. He finally died with yellow fever and is buried in San <

n city. He thought the arguments by which it was defended insufficient. But if such a Church shall be there, they should be content with a Church adequate to their necessity, not a splendid edifice to gratify pride. Mr. W. was also opposed to the mode of raising the money. Not because of his indifference as to pictures--but he objected to the private character of the enterprise. Suppose Mr. Smithson, on whom everything depended, should died. The enterprise would die with him. Dr. Lee deeply regretted the course of remark adopted by Mr. Wheelwright. He argued that the Virginia Conference was deeply committed to the enterprise of a Church in Washington. The engraving, the sale of which the resolution was designed to promote, is a credit to the brother who had got it up--"a thing of beauty is a joy forever." This picture was such. Shall we now, when the foundations of the Church are about to be laid, turn upon ourselves, and discredit our own nearly fulfilled purpose?

e spoke with some spirit in regard to the manner in which Presiding Elders were sometimes met. The stationed preacher got all, and the Elder, if he was not present at the quarterly meeting, was left to "suck his fingers, " and got nothing. Rev. Dr. Lee took occasion, in his remarks, to speak of the covetousness of the Church and of the age. Rev. Mr. Bennett, in reply, said that the Methodists of Virginia were most liberal in their contributions; they had given $100,000 to endow Randolph Macon College, $74,000 to the Publishing House, and $20,000 to Missions, beside a liberal support to the pastors of the Church. He protested against the idea that the Church was illiberal. Rev. Dr. Lee denied with much spirit that he had declared that the members of the Church were stingy. He was, himself, the best witness of their liberality, but he did believe that many men, even within the sound of his voice, loved money more than they ought. The report and resolutions were adopt
