In the morning the P.ishop
read his address and report of
his work for the year just past,
the report demonstrated -that
the Bishop had labo ed faith
fully. His work would have
been almost unremitting had he
not suffered from two severe at
tacks of sickness, which pre
vented him from accomplishing
as much as he had wished. This
report was very interesting.

Common sense ! What is it?
Who can define it ? Who can
put the label on the genuine ar

head, in a ct.rtaiu sense, with a

defined common sense as the
average sense or opinion of an
indefinite number of individu
als on any yiveu question. That
is, tace the opinion of ten or
one hundred men on some topic
with which they are familiar
and the general thread of
their opinions would be the
common sense view. But is
there no such thing as individ

Mr. S. S- Nash, commissioner
from the Diocese of North Car

the subject of appropriating a
portion of the legacy received
bv this Diocese under the will
and from the estate of Miss
Smith, to the support of a Rec
tor at the University ot iNonii
Carolina. He also, m the name
of his Diocese, invited the next
Council of East Carolina to join
that of North Carolina in cele
brating the centennial of the
organization of the first Conven
tion of churchmen in Nortli
Carolina, to be held In Calvarj
Church, Tarboro, next May.
B5 resolution the Council
cheerfully accepted the invita
tion of the Council of North
Carolina to unite with them in
the centennial services to be
held at Taiborough.
They also fixed the 14th day
of May, 1890, as the day of the
next annual meeting of the
Council, and Greenville, in Pitt
county, as the place.
They respectfully declined to
accede to the request of theDi
w-cese of North Carolina to make
an annual appropriation for the
support of a Rector at Chapel
By resolution the securities
and monies received from the
legacy of Miss Smith were ap
plied to the increase of the Per

The chief feature of the af

this Council on the "Proposed
