WE have then, at the present day, four great and distinct branches of the one historic Catholic Church, which have worship, doctrines and usages quite different indeed, though all holding to the fundamental principles —the Holy Scriptures, the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, the Primitive Creeds—the Apostles' and the Nicene —and the Ministry which our Lord instituted, perpetuated by an unbroken continuity and succession: (1) The Eastern Church, which is, for the most part, still under the Mahometan domina- tion. (2) The Russian Church, a part of the Eastern Church which has never been subject to Mahometanism. (3) T...

A PATHETIC APPEAL. IN the exercise of the right of appeal, thus far unrestricted, the colored people of the United States have joined in a day of prayer, and from the hopeful hearts of oppressed millions ascends the earnest that to this day arid nation there shall come a broader charity for the weak, a stronger sympathy for the suffering, more "kindly light" for the wavering and a stricter sense of justice to all. We pray for ourselves, for we know that we are not without fault. We feel the weight of a deplorable inheritance. Ages of barbarism and centuries of slavery combine their dreadful influence to crush out the instinctive good in our souls. With only thirty years of civilization, our feet often miss the narrow way, our hands are too weak to hold fast to that which is good, and wandering in darkness, ours is too frequently the light which fails. We would not have it so. Continually we strive for wisdom to see the right, and strength to do it. But our progress is slow, for we m...

Ember Day, 25. 15th S. after Trinity. 29. S. Michael & All Angels. THE SCRIPTURE REASON WHY I AM A CHURCHMAN CATHOLIC BUT NOT ROMANIST. KEY. DR. W. D. WILSON. X. § THE CHURCH FOR US. IT is indeed true that Romanists were among the early settlers in this country, as were also the Independents, the Presbyterians, and the Baptists. And in A. D. 1790 they effected an organization with a Bishop at their head. This was, however, some six years after our first Bishop, Seabuvy, was consecrated ; and our Church had been fully organized some few years before. But I attach no great importance to this fact. What the Churches of such country as France, Spain Portugal,and Austria may do is their affair and not ours. The Bishop of Rome is, doubtless, the legitimate Bishop of the Province of Rome; perhaps...

THE BEST METHODS CF CHURCH WORK AMONG THE COLORED PEOPLE. ALEXANDER CRUMMELL, 1). L>. THIS racialism is not, be it noticed, simply a matter of language. A missionary may know the language ot a people, —know it, scientifically, oetter than the people themselves, —but he needs something more than this. lie needs the spirit, the sensibilities, the special desires, the native peculiarities, the crude experiences, the agonized history,—nay, even the prejudices,—of that people in order to speak to their hearts and to address himselt to their needs. There is a vernacular of sympathy as well as a vernacular of speech among all peoples. And it is this vernacular which it is the most difficult of all things for alien blood to acquire. It is mainly by adherence to this principle of Gospel propagation that the Church will be able to make progress in her work among the colored people of the land. The principle has already asserted itself, crudely indeed, in the masses of black preache...

THE SCRIPTURE REASON WHY I AM A CHURCHMAN CATHOLIC but NOT ROMANIST. REV. DR. W. D. WILSON. XT. § THE CHURCH FOR US. th e Church and even Christianity itself are but means to an end. That end is, so far as this world is concerned, a righteous and Godly life;, and for the next world, a state of happiness and rejoicing in the presence of God. If now our Lord appointed the Church and its Ministry as the means to this end it is undoubtedly the best means that we can have for that end. And not only so, but there is some disrespect and disobedience to Him in rejecting it for means of our own devising. But when this step has once been taken and Christians think there is no harm in it, there seems to be no end to the subdivisions that may ensue and the number of sects we may have in our mids...

THE BEST METHODS CF CHURCH WORK AMONG THE COLORED PEOPLE. ALEXANDER CRUMMELL, D. ]>. The wouk of the Church in these great centres should be carried on with full force, wHi much impressment, with much beneficence, with fervent spiritual power, with visitations of mercy to both the bodies and souls of men. These great cities, moreover, should be made the bases of effort in the large towns contiguous to thtm. By large towns I mean, with judicious reservations, places or communities with from twenty to twenty-five thousand inhabitants. 3- But how shall church work be carried on under these conditions? In answer to this question important features of policy and method may here be brought forward: (a) And, first of all, the effort to plant the Church at a great central point should be a strong effort, not. a weak one. It had better not be made at all than to begin with feebleness, hesitancy and doubt. It should be strong in its ministry. This is the ( way work for Christ was a...

TENNESSEE. Two of Archdeacon Wilson's Sunday school pupils sent him the following which will explain itself: Memphis, Tenn,, Aug. 18, 'OS. Ven.

W. Daniel's, No. 267 Union street, on Monday Aug. 15. The number in attendance 30; admission fee 10 cents. Cash net receipts $3.

UNITY AND EFFICIENCY OF THE CHURCH. OTND undoubtedly each one Q'-l of the great denominations around us—and in this category I include not only the Romanists but also the most extreme sects in the Protestant denominations—is doing, work for good by reaching different classes of persons whom in the present state of things, neither we nor any one of them alone and by itself, as the only one Church in the community, could possibly accomplish. Desirable as Church unity is, as a means of efficiency, we must wait for it until God, by the operations ot His Holy Spirit on the minds of men, shall prepare the wav for ...

THE BEST METHODS CF CHURCH WORK AMONG THE COLORED PEOPLE. ALEXANDER CRUMMELL, D. D. IF we send inferior men into the field, we shall soon lind no people to follow them; for, besides this ministerial aspect of the matter, there is the added fact, viz , that the pew, in many places, is fully up to the pulpit in training and knowledge (d) These schools, moreover, should be, largely as possible, un der the control of colored professors -arid teachers. Institutions of divers kinds, industrial, academical, collegiate, founded, governed,and taught by colored men, are springing up all through the South. These institutions spring from the demands of the race. The people wish their children to be taught by men of their own blood. The tendency is a growing one, and it isirresistable. Since emancipation they have demanded colored teachers, colored doctors, colored lawyers, colored editors and newspapers to the number of one hundred, colored colleges and professors, and colored PREACHERS, and th...

COMMUNICATED. Editor Church Advocate: —I have been waiting to see what Afro-American Church people had to say, concerning Archdeacon Moran's letter on lynch law. But I find not a word from them save your editorial. I wish lie had attended strictly to the work which the Church sent him to do, and to have let others more capable than he instruct us about the lynch law in the South. Here is a clipping from Sunday's American. It shows on what narrow ground, he bases his plea of "hurried justice." This and other evidence, convicts him of having carelessly and hastily given public expression to ideas, which are not in accord with American civilization and Christianity. It is my candid conviction, that the Archdeacon has thrown away a golden opportunity of doing a great * work for the Church among our people. The first prerequisite of a missionary is a love for the people among whom he labors This is wanting in a marked degree in our Archdeacon. He may live to an old age and die in the wor...

On succeeding evenings othei movements, some of them a missionary character, will seek to attract the attention of the members of the Convention, but sfhe matter of the Church's duty to the Negro race holds the first place in order of time, and pretty certainly in the scale of relative importance. For though "the colored question" has long ago lost the attraction of novelty, the necessity of the Church attempting some adequate solution is becoming more and more pressing. Indeed, so urgent is the call, so unique...

•other is how shall we reach them in the country, where they are widely scattered. These are points which you may not settle, but of which you may think and freely discuss. A third problem is how to supply the needs of earnest, true and well trained workers for this field. A high standard of training is necessary, and I should feel that it would be wronging and degrading the race if we set for them a standard lower than that insisted upon for white priests. .Bishop JN elson's Diocese.
