A paragraphiis going the rounds which states, that. Bishop Early is lying dangerously ill, at a Camp-meeting near Lynchburg. To relieve the anxiety of the church, .we extract from a letter written on the 27th lilt., by Rev.-II. 1'. Bibb, who was at that time in Lynchburg, on a flying visit to a relative. He says : " On Sunday night -of the meeting Bishop Early, after having preached twice during the -day. wan taken is now better, and it is hoped he will soon be well." All men are mortal, and it is reasonable to believe that this faithful servant of the church wiil ultimately pass into the portals of light, and " rest from his labors." Nor should we be at all surprised if the messenger at last should call him up from a Conference or a camp-meeting. It will be written of him, "he fell at his post." May the day be distant ere the church militant shall lose him 1 A Good Subscriber. 'A subseriber-in ilowan who lives on his monthly wages, -writes thus : "I enclose SI. 50 to pay for the Advocate. You did right to stop my. paper when the pay was out. But I must have our Advocate. No one shall ever say I took the paperwithout paying for it. Though hard run for money, I will always save the, price of the Advocate out .of my hard e&raings. I intend to take ft as long as I live ; and when I die.'I-intend to leave money enough ;to my widow, (should I ever obtain a wife, and leave a widow,) to enable her to pay f r the paper as long as she lives." He wiil make a good husband ; we beg leave to put in a good word for him and far all like him. A faithful subscriber deserves a good wife ; he will take care of one. .Our frienda, .the bachelors, will please take.the hint.

Oar only interest in the , matter is to forestall such precedents j in Georgia, as might hereafter impede the emigration of a Bishop to Xorth Carolina.

Personal. We leara that Rev. B. T. Blake suppos es that our reply to his article on "Conference Boundaries," last week, may make the impression that we regard his motives and feelings as hostile to the true interests of the Xorth Carolina Conference. V e ! think that in this he is mistaken. But to prevent the possibility of inferences so unjust to both of us, we take occasion to say explicitly, that whatever objections we may have to the theory propounded by him, we know him to be incapable of mo tives incompatible with the prosperity of the Conference of which he has been so long an honored member. The publication of his article laid upon us the necessity of a reply. But that reply was first submitted to a mutual friend, as it would have been to himself, had he been in the city, with a pledge to strike out every word which could be construed as unkind or unjust to Bro. Blake. Xo word of unkindness was found by this friend, and it was published as originally written. And now we can but disavow any construction of our language that can by possibility afHict our friend and brother. As to the question at issue, we differ widely ; but we differ as brethren. Both have been heard, and we trust there will Peace Making-Heart divisions destroy the work of God. " Blessed are the peace-makers." Bishop Potter, of Pennsylvania, in a Conventional Address, thus pertinently enforces the du ty of peace among brethren : "Little can be hoped from our agency as peace-makers in the Christian world at large, unless we can point at home to a house with substantial as well as nominal unity, to brethren, who dwell together in the unity of the Spirit and the bond ot peace There is amonjr our clergy so much sub stantial agreeme'nt, and so little even of unimportant difference among our laity, that continued strite and recrimination would be alike gratuitous and suicidal. Let us, then, pray more and more 'tor the peace of Jerusalem." Letourstrife be who shall most advance the things that make for our peace. Whatever breeds mutual distrust or tends to animosities, let us dis countenance. In respect to real or suppos ed evil or error in others, let us be slow to speak, and slower still to wrath. Let us endeavor to recognise and honor all the good we can find in those who are honestly workins ior souls, ana 11 tnere are tnose who -will not abstain from evil speaking, whose element is discontent, and conten tion and change, let us leave them to their ignoble and unenviable work, with the prayer that God will give them repentance and better minds. A Good Meeting. By request of the members of the church at Bethel, six miles from the city, we spent two days very pleasantly with them last week in the labors of a revival with which the Lord was blessing them. The congregations were large and attentive souls were converted, and believers were filled with lovo and joy. "The unity of the spirit in the bonds of love" abounded, and it was with great reluctance we yield ed to the necessity of returning to the chair Editorial. Bethel is one of the old est Baptist churches in Wake county; and we trust that the revival may result in great good to the neighborhood. The "Spirit of the Age." The last issue of this periodical opens the ninth volume. We take the occasion to congratulate friend Gorman upon his merited success, in furnishing his readers with the best temperance and literary jour nal in the South. A Business Item- Receipts will be given next week. Also by that time the new mail books will be completed, all corrections made, letters an swered, and arrears of business generally brought up to date. Until then our friends will please wait a time with patience. For tL e X. C. C. A I vocal e . NtTBEKJiE, Ac 22, lo7.

July contains an article headed j " Tidings from the East," signed O-sis-so," and dated " Rest, X. C," in which article the writer refers to " a church trial ; and its results," which was reported to him during his recent visit to Xewberne; and also specially refers to the Baptist Church of this place, as the scene of this church expelled not believe baby sprinkling was a dn ;" 1 one ot her members " who did and, whereas, the tenor of said article nec essarily implies, that the church had excluded said member b'cauxe he "did not believe baby sprinkling was a sin," and for no other cause ; therefore, Resolved 1st, That said article i3 a caricature, and therefore a misrepresentation of said " church trial and its results," as the proceedings in the case will show, a copy of which was given to the excluded member at his own request soon after his exclusion, (in July, I80G ) If"Ossisso" did not see the document, the fault was not, therefore, ours. 2d. That this church does regard " baby prinkling" a sin, and its practice, by a member of a Baptist church, as a sufficient ! ground for discipline; and it is no compliment to the intelligence of a Methodist, to say he did not know this to be the faith and practice of Baptist churches. dd. lhat, as the writer of said article has concealed his real name, we hereby request him to review his course and pub- ldy repair the wrong he has done to the japtist Church of Newbernc. : 4th. That, while this Church does not '. wish to give publicity to her action in the case in question, yet, if " Ossisso" refuses to do her the justice she asks at his hands, she claims the right to defend herself, by a publication of the proceedings in the case. 5th. That the Editor of the IN. C. C. Advocate be, and he is hereby, respectfully requested to insert these proceedings in his paper as an act of justice to an injured public. J. C. Stevenson, Cl'c Remarks : The above is inserted cheer fully. The Editor entertains respect for the Baptist Church in Xewberne,and has grate ful recollection of the hospitality extended l j.6..gi;uu iuem wroog, and willingly T give them the benefit of their own explau-j ation. If "Ossisso" shall see that be was misled; by erroneous information, he too will do right in the premises- He i3 liable tabe misled, but we do not think him cajahle of intentional injustice. We cannot help thinking it hardly 10m- patible with the dignity of a church to pay such attention to au anonymous aews-par per article. The explanation might have ctme with' better grace from some member of ths church; at least the prying public will be- apt to think so. 1. The gist of the supposed wrong done by our shadowy correspondent to the Baptist Church in Xewberne is thus set forth in the formal proceedings : "The tenor of said article necessarily implies that the church had excluded said member because "he did not believe baby sprinkling to be a sin," and for no other cause." It is apparent that the church felt called upon, not simply to correct a partial state ment of its actior, but to relieve itself from the odium of of excluding a member for no other reason than that he "did not believe baby sprinkliBg was a sin." 2. And yet in the same document which repels the statement that the church has expelled a member for such a cause, it is added, in formal resolution, "That this church does regard baby sprinkling a sin, and its practice by a member of the Baptist church as a sufficient ground of discipline." If infant baptism be a sin, it is sinful to approve it; if to practice it be ground for discipline, to approve the practice also calls for discipline. And in this point of view, ! we are at a loss to perceive how the Baptist Church in Xewberne could feel so aggrieved with our correspondent, only for erroneously supposing they had done that which their opinion of infant baptism would necessarily lead them to do, in the case of a member who should "approve such things" as it denounces to be sinful. But is infant baptism a sin ? If so, then the Apostles and first christians, and multitudes of believers in Christ, who have gone to heaven, were great sinners. For they approved and practiced infant baptism and died without repenting the evil. In fact, our Baptist brethren are honestly mistaken on this question. Apart from anything that has been, or that may be published by our Baptist brethren, we shall take occasion soon to present the reasons upon which we believe infant baptism to be right and scriptural. Here, however, having given the Baptist Church in Xewberne a place in our columns, we trust this matter will be per mitted to rest.

A camp meeting under the charge of the venerable Bishop Early, of the Methodist Episcopal Church is in progress at the camp ground, on Ward's road, seventeen miles from Lynchburg. The Courier, in its issue of Tuesday, thus alludes to it : We were there on last Sabbath, and listened with great pleasure to two finely delivered discourses from the Bishop, who appears to be very zealous in the good cause, and whois doing much to bring sinners to the altar. There was a dense concourse of persons drawn together from Campbell and the adjoining counties, and every person that could get a team from Lynchburg, was there. The attendance is a great deal larger than last year. There have been but few ministers as yet, but a good number are expected, among them Rev. Messrs. Hall and Carter, of this city, and the Rev. Mr Rosser, Presiding Elder of this district. A good time is anticipated. The tents are very comfortably fitted up, and those who have been there during the progress of the meeting, speak in high terms of the excellent accommodations. We were sorry to seo the preacher interrupted in the first part of his sermon by gentlemen taking seats with the ladies. A kind reproof from the Bishop had the ef fect to move the gentlemen to their own side, and the sermon was listened to with marked attention by at least two thousand persons. Y e douot not they are having an interesting meeting, and hope great good may be the result. Z V ',r, l at Lii Tbs Spirifi As 3 e-r;rsn of 'b Per-rV IlVr -r .v T. s.-,4 r.fi-. Baptist Church.
