For Our Church Paper. The Lute Kev. Alfred J. Fox. M. D. The death of this venerable servant of God, has thrown a deep gloom over his numerous friends. My associations witft him were long, intimate, and pleasant. I respected, admired, and loved him while living, and now, that he is goue, I should do violence to my feelings, were I not to pay a feeble tribute of respect to his memory. . Dr. Fox was my junior in years but a few months, and in the ministry only one year. From the time I entered tho ministry, (in 1830) now nearly half a century ago, down to tho day of his death, it was my privilege ami pleasure to be intimatejy acquainted with him and his work in tho church, and for more than half this time, did we, in tho early part of our ministry, work together m tho samo Synod. Since the formation of tho Holston Synod in 1800-1, we have often met in ecclesiastical conventions, in tho public ministrations of God's house, and in the social circle, and maintained an occasional epistola...

For Our Church Paper. Letter from Africa. No. 3. The mission houses are all of n&tive wood, built on substantial stone pillars, three or four feet from theground, so as to give free circulation and enable us better to keep out snakes and vermin. Putting up buildings in this country is uo small matter, being perhaps the most fruitful cause of so many missionaries breaking down in the opening of new stations. There is a great abundance of as good timber as can be found in any part of the world, but no facilities either for cutting or transporting. The only mode of sawing is with the clumsy, old-fashioned pit saw, which being manufactured in Europe,especially for this part of the world, is not the best even of its kind, but is sold at a prodigiously high price. A tree is chopped, or rather hacked, down with an ax nioie primitive yet than the saw—an operation requiring days and even weeks to accomplish. Then a log ten or twelve feet long is taken off in the sauio loisurcly m...

At first wo think of streets of gold, Of walls as white as snow, wind driven, Of lofty arches grandly cold, Of gates of pearl and dazzling light, Of shining wings and rohes of white, And things all strange to mortal sight. Hut in the afterward of years It is a more familiar placo; A home unhurt by sighs aud tears ; Where waiteth many a well known face , Where little children play and sing, And maidens and the old men hring, Their tributes to the gracious King.

From the Lutheran Visitor. A Response. Mr. Editor: In your paper of July 3d a desire ie expressed to know of those Southern Synods not in connection with the General Synod South, why thoy cannot join the General Synod, why thoy wish a Synodieal Conference, and what they contemplate as to the oharacter of the proposed new body f These inquiries will bo most fitly answered by those in the several Synods who bore a prominent part in making tho proposition to form " a General Lutheran Southern Synodieal Conference, properly based on the Confessions of the Church," etc. I was not one of these, but a few points from my standpoint, us a pastor in the Tennessee Synod, may be of some interest in conneotion with the subject. All are agreed, I presume, as to tho desirableness of such union of Synods. As a new organization, however, under a new title, it meets with the objection that it Beams to ignore the General Synod and its work. But cannot the General Synod bo perpetuated in connection wit...

Conference of the Tennessee Synod. On yesterday your correspondent met two appointments : in the forenoon, at Thyatira, a church belonging to the N. 0. Synod, in the eastern part of (Jatawba county, known as Roseman's church, hereabout, so called because it was built chietly by old Mr. Daniel ltosoinan, wh# is in his 80th year, still a member of this church, a member of the N. 0. Synod. When, u few winters ago, the house was crushod in by the weight of snow and ice, ho soon after fell to work and with commendable zeal, rebuilt said house. It is commodious and comfortable. The members of the F. 0. Synod in this community are few, but surrounded by many members of the Tennessee Synod. No minister of the N. (J. Synod is now preaching here—has not been for some time, hence asked the writer to preach for them...

in ii more outended union of the Churches South. Wo do not believe that, under existing conditions, the hearty and effective co-op-eration of our people can bo elicited in such a Seminary South of Virginia. Were it located further South our students would go North in spite of u». We therefore fear that our unity in such a Seminary South of Va. would provo nugatory. Wo moreover believe that our people do not approve of the action of the Gen. Synod at Charleston, and would hall with pleasure, its roconstitution, and give it a heartier support. So far as the necessities of the case are concerned, every reason which called for a Gen. Southern Seminary horetofore calls for it now, aud the opportunity to elicit the earnest co-operation of our people never so good oe now.
