y have decided upon, notwithstanding all our commissions and pleas for peace, may be arrested by that Supreme power who maketh the wrath of man to praise him; and that thus, through a Divine blessing, the prosperity of these sovereign and once allied States may be restored under the two Governments to which they now and hence forth respectively belong. 8th. Resolved, We do recommend to the Churches of the Baptist denomination in the Southern States, to observe the first and second days of June, as days of humiliation, fasting and prayer to Almighty God, that he may avert any calamities due to our sins as a people, and may look with mercy and favor upon us. 9th.Resolved. that whatever calamities may come upon us, our firm trust and hope are in God, through the atonement of his Son, and We earnestly beseech the Churches represented in this body, (a constituency of six or seven hundred thousand Christians,) that they be fervent and importunate in prayer, not only for the country, b

In the war of the Revolution, and in the war of 1812, the Baptist bated no jot of heart or hope for the Redeemer's cause. Their zeal and liberality abounded in their deepest afflictions. We beseech the Churches to cherish the spirit and imitate the example of this noble army of saints and heroes; to the follower of them, who, through faith and patience, inherit the promises, to be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as they know that their labor is not in vain in the Lord. 10.

Report adopted. On motion of Winkler-- Resolved, unanimously, that this Convention would do injustice to its sentiments and convictions, if it should not thus publicly acknowledge its sense of regard to the Rev. Dr. Fuller, President of this body and chairman of its Committee on the State of the Country, and also the others of its members who are citizens of the Border States, for their Christian interest in the fortunes, and their manly and brave assertion of the rights, of our Confederacy; and that we invoke the special protection of Heaven upon them in the cities to which they belong, and in the days of trial which they may hereafter encounter. On motion of W. C. Crane, the Convention adjourned, to meet at Columbus, Miss., on Friday before the 2d Sabbath in May, 1863.

their enterprises may be attended with success, and that they may attain a great reward, not only in seeing these Confederate States prosper under their administration, but in contributing to the progress of the transcendent Kingdon of our Lord Jesus Christ. 4th. Resolved, that We must cordially tender to the President of the Confederate States, to his Cabinet, and to the members of the Congress now convened at Montgomery, the assurances of our sympathy and entire confidence. With them are brought again from the dead the Lord Jesus: that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work, to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever.

and there he stood himself. Kentucky was virtually out of the Union, as she had refused to furnish money or men for the wicked crusade against the South. President Fuller said, there was no difficulty on his mind. He voted here for himself, upon his solemn convictions of duty, his conscience and before God. It mattered not who differed from him. Maryland was one way to-day and another to-morrow, and he would say that twenty States could not instruct him and enforce obedience. Mr. Howell fully agreed with the President, and would so advise the Brother from Kentucky. There might be some division of opinion in Tennessee, but there was no difficulty with his Church. The old men and the young men had gone to the war — he had four sons, all of whom were under arms; he had offered himself to the Governor in any capacity that he may be useful to the country, and his daughters, with their young lady friends, were spending the afternoons in practice with taverns instead their hom

remarks that our separations and bereavements are partial deaths, to prepare us for the last great separation. I remember, as if it were yesterday, that in bidding adieu to each other at Richmond, two years ago, a dear Brother from Georgia, (who is present and still happily spared to us.) alluding to a prayer just offered, said to me, with tears, "that thought touches me to the heart, We may, indeed, never meet again upon earth." near by him stood another of Georgia' s worthy sons. It was Dawson. The observation was prophetic as to him. Where is he now? where the form so honored and loved — the voice so eloquent for Jesus?--brethren, what has been, will be again. This thought pierces my very soul, that We shall not all meet again. but I cannot trust my feeling with such reflections. Brethren, again I thank you for all your kindness. I bid you an affectionate farewell. Upon each of you may God shed down the richest blessings of grace, peace and Love. "the God of all grace
