habitation of God by his Spirit constitutes the Church, agree, for their edification and for the conversion of their fellow-men, to organize the Church of the Army, with the following articles of faith and constitution: I. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the Word of God, the only rule of faith and obedience. II. We believe in one God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; the same in substance; equal in power and glory. III. We believe in the fall in Adam, the redemption by Christ, and the renewing of the Holy Spirit. IV. We believe in justification by faith alone, and therefore receive and rest upon Christ as our only hope. V. We believe in the communion of saints, and in the doctrine of eternal rewards and punishments. The Christian men who have been baptized, adopting these articles of faith and constitution, in each regiment, shall constitute one church; who shall choose ten officers to take the spiritual oversight of the same.

ver at night either in going to or from the front, several of whom came forward for prayer. At Corinth I had the privilege of preaching to a portion of the Second Regiment Engineer Corps, and the sick and wounded soldiers several times—interest was manifested by a number of them, who gave evidence of a desire to seek religion. I also enjoyed the privilege of attending the session of the Memphis Conference, held at Aberdeen, Mississippi, November 9-14; and the Montgomery Conference at Tuskegee, Alabama, December 7-13.

at fervor and power. The young believers were organized into private prayermeetings, which met at seven o'clock in the morning. Sometimes, says Mr. Redding, I would quietly unpeg the door and walk in while the young men were engaged in their delightful meetings, and would find the young convert of the previous night leading in prayer, and earnestly invoking God's blessing upon his impenitent comrades. In the evening, at the close of dress-parade, the drums would beat the Church call on Chapel Hill. It was a glorious sight, just as the setting sun bathed the mountain tops in his ruddy light, to see those toil-worn veterans gathering in companies and marching to the house of the Lord. From all directions, down from the hills, out of the woods, across the valleys, they came, while the gallant Colonel McCullough, of the Sixteenth South Carolina, himself a godly man, leads his men to the place of worship.

. The First Presbyterian Church was tendered for our use; but when I consulted General Kirby Smith he wisely advised me to decline the offer for good reasons, and we worshipped at the encampment. There was more sickness than usual among our soldiers, and the hospitals were filled by the corps. In visiting the sick, by special inquiry, I found several pious praying men, and the majority of the sick and wounded were readers of the Bible.

with us. Few of our number would be more missed. A very peculiar man in appearance, and a peculiarly true and earnest soul, he was most highly esteemed by us all. Few men ever loved the Church better, or were more at home in her councils or at her altars. He was popular among his brethren, and popular among the people. Perfectly fearless, he avoided no duty or responsibility. In every respect he was reliable. On the battlefield of Perryville he fell, attesting his devotion to his native South. He was one of the few men who could have gone on to any position in the service in which he fell, and afterwards have come back to the work of a Methodist preacher. One bright, sunny spirit less—we'll miss and lament him. Rev. Dr. Joseph Cross, who was with General Bragg's army, thus describes the battle-field after the fight at Murfreesboro: Ah! how many expired with the year. Here they lie, friend and foe, in every possible position, a vast promiscuous ruin. They sleep the
