o shall choose ten officers to take the spiritual oversight of the same. Of the officers so elected the chaplain, or one chosen by themselves for that purpose, shall act as Moderator. The officers will meet once a month, and oftener if necessary; and in the exercise of discipline will be guided by the direction of Christ. They will keep a record of the names of all the members and the manner in which their ecclesiastical connection with this church is dissolved. Writing from Kingston, Georgia, February 4, Dr. J. B. McFerrin says: We have a good meeting in progress. It has been going forward since Sunday last. Large crowds, mostly soldiers, are in attendance. Many penitents, some conversions, and a few backsliders reclaimed. Last night five asked for membership in the Church of God. We give the applicants choice of churches and receive them into various Christian organizations—different divisions, but one grand army. From Dalton, February 3, Rev. A. D. McVoy sent

es and bursting shells. In the battle, and in the hospital, the genuineness of those army conversions was fully tested. In the terrible campaign that followed, whenever the smoke of battle cleared away, and the weary men had a little rest, they gathered their shattered but undaunted cohorts, and, with renewed zeal, and with love tested in the fire of war, repledged their faith to each other and charged again and again the strongholds of Satan. Lying behind the strong barrier of the Chattahoochee River for a few days, these Christian soldiers built a brush arbor, and beneath it many souls were born of God. Dying, those noble men of the South gave testimony to the power of divine grace. Can I do anything for you? said the missionary, kneeling by the side of a private shot through the neck. Yes, write to my poor wife. What shall I write? Say to my dear wife, it's all right. This was written. What else shall I write? Nothing else, all's right —and thus he died. He was a conve

This march across the State we made March 18 to 31. I was in company with Chaplains M. B. Dewitt, Eighth Tennessee, R. G. Porter, Tenth Mississippi, and Gregory and Tatum. Dr. Dewitt was one of our most efficient chaplains in the army. I saw much of him during the war. He was ready all the time for all good work.
