THE CHURCH INTBLUOENCER
By request, we copy from the Church Intellie«ioer
the following letter from Bishop Atkinson, nrg^ing npon
the members of the Episcopal Church to give a liberal
support to that paper. 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.

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

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.

Worthy of being N'jtmed —A few facta have
recectly come to our knowledge in reference to
the conduct of Maj James M. 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

the Administration, and the result seems to have
been what his Mends, for some time, have fear

each with the o*^her, in regard to both their
ecclesiastieal and political views. Dr. Seabtipy
