Patriotic action.

--The following are the admirable resolutions (says the Fayetteville Observer) adopted by the late Convention of the Episcopal Church in this State. They were written by the Rev. Mr. Hilliard, Rector of the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill:

Resolved, That in this day of our national trial, the Protestant Episcopal Church in North Carolina, confluent in the justice of the cause for which the people of the Confederate States are commanding, is ready to hear, both firmly and cheerfully, all such troubles as, by the Providence of God, through the circumstances of the times, may be brought upon her, whether in her corporate capacity, or by means of the privations of her individual ministers and members.

Resolved, That, believing that righteousness alone, on the end, either ex or saved a nation, she pledges here if to put forth all her energies for the cultivation, by God's help, in the Southern people, of those vitrines which win the favor, and for the eradication of those vices which cannot but incur the wrath, of the King of kings and the Lord of Lords.

Resolved, That her fervent prayers shall ever ascend to her Heavenly Master, that He will endow our rulers with wisdom and crown our arms with victory.
