The Intelligencer ia, without doubt, very ably edited, and the excdlent Bishop’s ad- mocitioDs should be heeded by tJioae to whom they are addressed; TO THE CLER4T AMD LAITT OK THl DIOCESK Of S CAROLINA. Dear Bekthren: The proprietors of the Church Irtel- ligp"cer require and dfserve our co-operation. They publi’^h s paper of acknowledeed excellence, both in its meohanicul execation, and in its literary aad theolotpcal character. If °natained, it will be a great benefit to the Church; if liberally distributed through the arrov^ it would be a valuable and welcome lx)cn to that body of men to whom we owe eo much, aind ♦or whoee spiritual welfare we do so little. But the paper cannot be sus tained nnles* others exert themselves ia its behalf as we:l as the Editors. I therefore request the c’ergv, and others interested In the religions instruction cf tbe people, to do what they can towards increasing the circulation of the paper, and I recommend that those who have money to rive for I rcli^ons objects shonld include thia aotoog the objects * for which they provide. If ten wealthy men would give five hundred dollars each, and fifty, less favored in that rcspect, would give one hundred dollars each, directing thi.t the papers to which they would be entitied by the contribution of thw>e sums shonld be sent for di»tribu- tion in the camps and hospitals, two 'n:iportant benefits would be secured—some part of the debt we owe to the army would be paid, and our useful organ of the Church maintained.

I l-if OCR CAUSE AND COUNTRY At DO period of fefae war haa the general anzi. etj of the peopla been more itronglj HiaDifeited, in refereaoe to the oondition of our afifairs, than at the present time. The Baooess of the enemy in the Somh, the state of the eorreney, and the aappiy of food and raiment both for the army and people, ail oombine to spread sadness over many faces, and to awaken deep eonoern for the fate of the eanse and the ooantry. Congrpea appears to be at its wit’s end, and eTery one is aaziona to know his neighbor’s opinion of the sitaation. For onryelf, we are just where we were when tbe b i!l of reTolntion started. We have never had a confidence in onr sacoem exoept in the govji I*, videaoe and grace of God. We have nevtfr :^>-gded in the atrecgth of our oombina- tion:>. t." skill of our gene^ab, the courage of our tro' p^, or the unanimity of our people, or th« justice (>r*our oaosa, unloes we made God our leader i^or, humanly speaking, the odds have been vaeUy against us in all material respeots. Hence our oonfidenoe has waxed or waned, just as we have seen our people humble and reliant upon God and prayerful on the oae*hand, or prood, vain-gloriouB and wioked and prayerleas on the other. The hiistory of the paat year fully sustained us in thia {>osition. More than a year ago our peo ple were downcast and despondent The oam* paign upon the whole had been against us, and very general anxiety was felt for the issue. For tunately both in the aroiy and at home, the people began to manifest tho true spirit of penitence and prayer. God appeared in got ranks in the power of his Spirit, and there was a general awakening Soon our foes bcean to give back and at all pointa we were vlotorious. The spirit continued to grow and Bpread until summer Thousands in the army and at home were converted. Even in the trenches our brave troops prayed and sang praises to God. Oar succcsiica £hiled to humble us. Prayerleesness, vain glory, forgetfulness of God, mirth and wickedness, and defeat followed. It need not be blinked, that the diseouraga* ment and despondency of the people are greater than at any other period Our ^fficulties have inere>sed upon tu and the cloud is denser and more portontous We in are in danger of abso lute inertness and submission to the foe. The courage and fortitude of the people at home leem to have foreaken them, and crime and sin abound among us If we are more disheartened, we are nevertheleaa greater sinners Our chastisements have not humbled us, nor have we drawn nigh to God. It this state of things continues our rain is inevitable. What now? We believe there is yet mercy with G^ that he may be feared. Our o«6e is not so desperate unless of choice we make is so If we are ruined it is our own fault. God’s arm not shortened that it cannot save. He is ready to come to our deliverance, if we hunoble oorselves and call upon his name. Faith in God —humble reliance upon Him, wiH infuse new life, a new spirit into our people We need but to rally our Uith, our courage and determination, and God will help us Let prayer be made oy Vml's IQ O^rnvntr fuB ilko •acaaa an:l tllA country—Ril Christian Advocate. . J ■" AN EXAMPLl TO BB FOLLOWED. As an old woman would saj, we have struck a streak of bad luck,—our cause has fallen upon disaiter. It seems that the gloom that gettled upon the army and people oi Pmssia, at the ter mination of the fourth year’s campaign of Fred erick the Great, was to be felt by us in onr not dissimilar struggle -for liberty and independence. In this particular «here is a very striking coinci dence, which should causc us to take eourage and continue lo strike, so long as the hated foe persists in hia unhallow^ purpose of barbarous war to bring ufl in subjection to the will of an inhuman tyrant. Frederick, with a population of five millions of souls, went to war with combined Europe. The Confederat«e leagued against him, Bumm«d up a population of near a hundred millions This proud array of numbers had no terron for the immortal chief or his devoted followers. Their country was threatened, their own chosen liberty was to be subverted, and they determined to avert the danger, er die as patriots are wont to die, rather than temely yield to an exacting pub lic enemy. Their country was little adapted to defensive war, and nothing seemed to favor them but an unalterable tpirit never to yield to any human poioer whose purp''set were inimicml to their country’M cmuae. For four long years Frederick led this brave people to glory aad to victory a- eainst innumerable odds. The fir?t, second, and third year, he held his own, but gained very little advantage. The latter part of the fourth year, he met with serious disasters. In a regular pitched battlo, ho lost nearly half of his veteran army, killed and captured. He was reduced to the ut most strait. All seamed to be lost. But winter came and put a stop to military operations, and, nothing daunted, in defiance of his serious re verses, his Tinyielding spirit was commensurate to the danger. Though many ef his best troops who had marched under the black eagles to victory lay cold in death or were languishing in the filthy prisons of' his numerous enemies; though his counti7 was plundered, devastated, desolated; and though his enemies w»re still numerous and ex acting, his courage failed not, his energy and ability proved equal to the emergency. When the campaign opened in the Spring following he had succeeded in getting together forty thousand troops, with whom, through three eventful years of sui^equent war, he succeeded in freeing his country of its enemies and establishing its inde pendence So much for energy and a settled purpose. How is it with us? We have been at war for nearly four years against the most intolerable tyranny the world ever saw—a tyranny to which we can never yield, on any conditions, without an entire surrender of every blessing and immunity dear to freemen—against which we have held our •wn—we have met with no irreparable disaster; but because we have austained some serious re- versee, and the enemy has gained some of our principal cities, we see fear and trembling taking bold of the people, And a spirit of despondency prevailing throughout the land. Will our people not take courage? Will they not cease te drapond? Will they not make an other manly effort to redeem their country? Ohl will they not reflect UTH>n our abject misery, should we be finally subdued by the Northern armies? The world is looking upon us in contemplation of our action. Posterity will cherish or execrate our memories according to what wo now do. “ Salishury Watchman. Sale of Bank ^tock.

Stevenson, 36th N. C. Troops, wnich are worthy of being named. At the late battle of Harrison’s old Field, which was an advanced position, 14 miles from Savan nah, Maj. Stevenson wv in command with a part of his own battalion aud a part of tho 50th, 40th and 10th battalions. Gen. Hardee did not in tend them to fight the enemy, but merely to hold them in check a few hours; but the order to re treat failing to reaeh tho Major, with his small , force he fought the enemy till flanked by two brigades, by whom he and his whole command eame near being captured. Information reaehel Gen. Hardee that the M^jar’s command wa* cap tured, for a Yankee Brigade was in the rt>ad by which ho would have to retreat. Maj. Stevensou, however, seems to h;»ve knowu the oouotty better t^an Gen. Hardee’s informant, and made his escape with all hin mon, except thirteen killed. He also broaght off al* his wouud- od, hi(3 artillery and wigons, and that same night mii^ehed iato Savannah and reported in person to Gen. Hard'^e, by whom he was waraaly. re ceived and highly coaplimented For this aot of galUntry and flkill we think the least that ean be doae for >lajr Stevenson is to hand his exploit round Saoti conduot. though doubtless highly appreciated by the commanding General, does not al «ays meet with recognition in official reports, and we esteem it an important duty for the press to encouraze all acts tending to the efficiency of the army By proper en couragement every private in oar armies may skilfully act the General in emergencies Goldsboro* Journal.
