From the Proceedings of the 3d Annul Convention of the A. M. E. Church. Our Country. When last we directed our attention to this subject, we spoke of our country in its more peaceful days. Wo alluded to its former prosperity, when the nation made such rapid strides to eminence and renown. In connection with this, we noticed the unceasing industry of the American people. We alluded in laudatory terms to the institutions of learning and benevolence which so providentially blessed our country. Nor did we forget to mention in exalted tones the religious institutions, and the tolerant spirit of the people of our country. Many sad regrets have been ours, when in the light of our common humanity, we have viewed the fratricidal strife since that time. Fierce and protracted have been the conflicts of tlie opposing armies. Cannons of war have answered cannons ; infantry have engaged infantry ; cavalry 11 :ive met cavalry; the dreadful charge has been received upon the points of wellpoised bay...
