In our last issue we made a few observations, pointing out nianv hindrances wmcn greatly militate ngainst the increase of candidates for Holy Orders Iroin among AfroAmericans. It would seem a great misfortune to have at this time, a very large increase of colored candidates for Holy Orders, while tbe church at present demonstrates so plainly its inability or disinclination to support and properly care for those already in her service. I here is not the least exaggeration eoncern ing the ills and deprivations which the colored clergy suffer but on the other hand the full extent ©f their hardships is never told bu...

they had it. He cited many instances in his ; Petersburg experience to prove it. He said the colored Episcopalians were held in con j tempt by the other colored denominations as "belonging to the white man's church," aud that the colored members of the Episcopal church were oppressed and trammeled by this feeling towards them. None of this woUld exist if they had their own Council and their own Bishop—in short their own chnrch Rev. Mr, Grmmar replied that the colored ministers now in the council, and who had signed the minority report, were them selves of the opinion that the adoption of the majority report would effectually stran gle the further work of the Episcopal church among their people. /•The most unique figure in the debate, and one whose personal relation to the matter at issue added interest to what he said, was Rev.

And should it be put into prac tical effect, the death—knell is struck, and whatever has been done will be undone, and no further effort need be made by the church to work in this portion of the Mas ter's vineyard. More space has been occupied than was my intention; but upon a question so near my heart, it is difficult to be brief, though I hope, none the less point ed. This is indeed a serious question; there is a deep principle at stake; and the question arises, shall the church depart from her old and well-tried principles of justice and truth ? It is a question of a right or wrong in principle. There should be no splitting of hairs, no temporizing, no compromise. With a well guided judgment, let her take her position before the world, before God. To one who firmly believes the divine institution of the church, there can be no donbt upon which side she will, she must eventually stand, if she stil...

We are now just as much opposed to a sep arate organization of any kind as we have ever been. But while this is true, a separation of some kind, in many of the Southern dioceses, is inevitable. The General Church is utterly powerless to prevent ft. The plan of such a separation has been already adopted iu Virginia, and unless we are greatly mistaken, at the next diocesan council the word "white" will be inserted in the constitution of the diocese and there by render the separation (already effected) operative. It is because we believe from the bottom of our heart that this sample of separation will impair and fatal...

Va., is the only one, so far, who seems to indorse the plan of separation already effected in this diocese; while Rev. Mr. Russell, who signed the minority report in the Staunton Council to* gether with us and the other member of the minority portion of the committee, has now reached the conclusion that "'The plans proposed by the Virginia Council look more Churchly" than one which wotild place the work upon a uniform basis with the same dignity accorded the Missionary Jurisdictions of the General Church. We confess that if our brother means by the word u Ciiurchly" that it is more in accord with Geneva than Canterbury, he is, most assuredly, correct.
