CHURCH WORK IN AFRICA. @N last Friday afternoon in Emmanuel chursh, this city, the Board of Missions, being in session, Bishop Whitaker of Pennsylvania addressed them as follows: Mr. President and Brethren: I greatly wish that Bishop Ferguson of the jurisdiction of Cape Palms were present here to speak to you himself of his work.

That point is the beginning of the Republic of Liberia stretching northward in its coast line 600 miles and stretching int...

A REQUEST FOR $500,00Q FOR BUILDING CHURCHES AND MISSIONS. On Thursday night, Oct. 6, the conference which had been in session several days, adjourned after naming Louisville, Ky., as the next place of meeting. In the morning Rev. Thos. W. Cain, of Galveston, offered a rjso lution that the church generally be asked to appropriate $500,000 to pay the debts and assist the colored churches and missions. This brought about a lengthy discussion, and finally resulted in the framing and adoption of a resolution by liev. Henry Sargent of West mi liter, which the secretary was instructed to send to the commission on colored work as soon as the commission is appointed by the General Convention. The resolution was as follows: "AVe recognize with thankfulness to our God the efforts now being made by the church commission for work among the colored people and in other ways. "It is the sense of this conference that the commission would further -our work by appointing, partly from among- themselve...

(Continued from Ist- Page.) she might pursue the studies upon which she had entered and fulfil her career as a Christian and free woman. Anvbudy who would like to enter into correspondence with Bishop Ferguson can find opportunities for purchasing, out of heathenism and perpetual slavery into the light of the glorious Gospel of freedom and of noble womanhood, such girls f( r $5O or $6O apiece. There is another very hopeful thing in that jurisdiction. It is that the whole system is in sympathy with the working of our own Church. For instance: The Woman's Auxiliary has been established in several congregations and is doing most efficient work. The Woman's Auxiliary of one organized parish contributed year before last —I have not seen the report since $287; and in another. $lOO. They are in sympathy with the organization and the work that is being carried on here. The Brotherhood of St. Andrew has been established in a number of places with excellent results.

My heart goes out to /the Bishop of Hayti, when I go brck and remember the few years that are past —remember . how, six years ago, the next to • the largest place on the island was swept by a conflagration which destroyed his largest church; and how a little while after, Port Au Prince, the capital, was again devastated by a conflagration which destroyed \ his mission building and left him without home or CHURCH.

VOLUME 11. NUMBER 39. CHURCH CALENDAR FOR OCTOBER 30. 20th. S. after Trinity. BISHOP DUDLEY. BISHOP Dudley's address before the Episcopal convention, now in session in this city, has in it many good sayings which are at a glance charming and captivating; but when the address is carefully read and analyzed, it will be, seen that A fro-Americans have been greatly injured by one who has the reputation of being their friend. As chairman of the commission on colored missions he had great influence with his associates. This he evidently used to prevent the elevation of any Afro-Americans to the House of Bishops, and to put the commission of having charge of the special work among the colored people in the hands of the southern bishops, whom he believes know more the wants of Afro-Americans, than the bishops and laymen of the north. This action in the first place deprives the colored arm of the church of a bishop of their own race who would be much in touch with his people, than it is poss...

THE "INFERIOR RACE." To the Editor of Church Arallow me to call jour attention to certain remarks of Bishop Dudley in his address on Colored Missions, before the Convention, on the 7th inst. The Big iop referred to the Colored people as an inferior race; and because of that inferiority, "if we must be careful In the ordination of white men, still more careful must we be in the ordination of ministers who spring from this inferior race, confessedly inferior in development." Inferior in developement as a race we admit; but that there is any inferiority of the colored to the white race, according to any fundamental principle or original element of its being, we strenuously deny. We deny further that there is need of being still more careful in the ordination of colored men, than of white men. For this reason: while the race, as a race, may r be inferior in developement, the individual men ot tho race who seek ordination are the equal of the whites in mental and moral development. Let B...

TT seems to be the prevailing 1 opinion that the Genera] Convention of 1892 has been the most conservatively progressive convention that this Church has ever held, as well as the most business-like and industrious. It has been most progressive in regard to all practical measures for the Church's growth, the expansion of her missionary work, the wise direction of her multiform energies, the increased number of missionary jurisdictions and missionary bishops. It has been conservative in holding resolutely aloof from radical propositions for constitutional changes, in voting down any resolutions which would keep Prayer Book revision open for three years longer or more, and in excluding from the resolutions that came up for final astion upon the revisi...

MEMOIR OF THE ORIGIN AND PROGRESS OF ST JAMES' FIRST AFRICAN P. E. CHURCH, Baltimore. BY KEY. H. H. WEBB. (DECEASED.) The first effort to start an Episcopal Church in Baltimore was made by a talented old colored man by the name of Jacob C. Greener, a communicant of St. Paul's Parish. He having obtained a license as a Lay Reader, held service in his own .house. But little progress was' made, very few of the colored people understood or cared anything about the Church and consequently after strenuous efforts on the part of Mr. Greener and others, the scheme was abandoned, and the persons who had favored it went back to the respective Protestant Episcopal Churches where they formerly worshipped. The Rev. William Levington, a native of New York, who was ordained Deacon by the Rt. Rev. Bishop White of Pennsylvania, on March 14, 1824, visited Baltimore, and had an interview with Bishop Kemp and Rev. Dr. Wyatt, then Rector of St. Paul's Church who gave him some encouragement to commence hi...

(Continued from 3rd Page.) gott, D.D. During the same period the Bishop licensed Mr. H. H. Webb as layreader, and who after suitable preparation was ordained to theDiaconate, and afterwards to the office of the Priesthood, and on the resignation of the Rev. Dr. McJilton he succeeded him. We do not desire to speak here of the earnest efforts of the Rev. Mr. Webb to keep the people in the fold of the Church and his untiring labors as a Pastor to the little flock, as they are known to all Churchmen in this city, but simply to trace the history of this church from the past to the present. The Rev. John Rose assumed charge of the church in 1872, and still continues his able ministrations. He has associated with him Mr. S. S. Maitland, as lavreader, who has charge of the Sunday school which has doubled in number during the past few months- The church has, at a cost of $5OO, been painted and beautifully decorated in the interior,and they need at this time a little help to enable them to fu...

AN EXTRACT OF THE TRIENNIAL SERMON BEFORE THE BOARD OF MISSIONS. / BY THE BISHOP OF WESTERN N.' Y. Bishop Coxe in his great sermon eloquently speaks concerning the descendants of Ham, as follows: "Three measures of meal represent the three families of the human race, the children of Noah. The woman is the Church, our mother. The promises concerning them are remarkable as given in connection with the text; and the sure prophecy is that in the sequel the whole human race is to be leavened with the Gospel. Let us recur to the promises as follows: (1) "Blessed be the Lord God of Shem"; (2) "God shall enlarge Japheth. and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem." (3) But what of Ham? Poor Ham! Precisely the reverse of what has beeu said to be God's curse upon an innocent race, unborn, is clear from the context. Ham h...
