"In auswej: to our appeal last'year; one generous soul, whose name the recording angel knows,'enabled us to pat the work in Norfolk on a more solid footing, by contributing $6,000 for a school. With this money and a legacy of $l, 500, we pur chased two houses in a desirable part of the city: one, a brick building, was put in thorough repair and is used as a convent and girl's school; the other an old frame house, is used temporarily for the boys. They were both opened amid many <?ifficultes on September 10 th aiid scarcely a week had elapsed before one hundred children occupied every available seat, and over one hundred more had to be turned away reluctantly for want of room. It isevident, therefore, that the old frame house should be replaced by a firm and roomy building that will accommodate these rejected applicants before before it is too late.

The Historical Society in Pennsyl vania possesses an authentic in ma* uscript of the Freuch officers who came to the Americans during the revolutionary war. Among them was the Vicomte de Fontanges, majorgeneral at tl\e siege of Savana, who commanded a legiou of free mulattoes and Negroes from St. Domingo. Their captains were Andre, Beany ias Riguad, and Beauregard all men of color, who afterwards became gener als under the Republic,and also Hen ry Christophe, who later was king of Hayti.

During the short time he has been (Interior, Grace Church.) there the lot and old building have been secured, the new church and rectory have heen built and paid for, aud recently a good second-hand pipe organ has been placed in the church.

An excellent brick building has been given by Churchmen of Norfolk for a colored orphan asylum and day nurser y, and funds are needed to fit; this building and manage it for those pur poses. There is not a charitable institution for colored people in Norfolk, except the almshouse. Whoever will look at these photographs and note the bright faces and neat dress of the large number of children belonging to the school, the extensive piece of ground covered with the group of buildings, the church-like interior, and in a word the evidently substantial growth of the whole mission, will be satisfied that here is indeed a work worthy of encouragement and support."

THE AFRO-AMERICAN CHURCHMAN. Thb Bishops of several of the Southern dioceses have revived the office of Arch-deacon in connection with the work of the Church among Colored People. As we understand it, the Archdeacon is to be the special helper of the Diocesan in this work.- Several of the appointtees are most excellent priest and gentlemen. In the few observations we pro po3e to make in this article we mean no reflection whatever upon those who occupy at present the office of Archdeacon. We do hope, however, that some Southern Bishop, in whose diocese there are bright prospects for the Church among the Colored People, will be brave and heroic enough to ignore the color-line and appoint some discreet and well-qual ified colored priest Archdeacon in his' diocese. ; If the Church does not really desire to increase the work but simply give the appearance of doing something why then she is now pursuing, possibly, the proper course. If the Archdeacon is simply to, be* financial agent, per...

6 THE AFRO-AMERICAN CHURCHMAN. It is now and then affirmed, by those who seem to have official information, that Colored People, as-a race, prefer white pastors. A most remarkable thins: ! How any person, cognisant of the present religious status of the Colored race, can accept such a statement, is to us, simply inconceivable. During and before the war, when they were compelled to accept the ministrations of white pastors, they also had, in addition thereto, their own pastors. Then again, upon what ground can we account for the almost universality, at> present, of colored pastors over colored congregations—if the statement be true that Colored people as a race prefer white pastors? The statement is not well-founded. It is a sad fact that young A fro-Americans of brains, influence and moral worth are not, as a rule, entering our Church, much less directing their thoughts towards her Ministry. Considering the present coudition of affairs it would he.most remarkable if they ...
