the stewards of this district was held on
Wednesday of last week in the Methodist
Episcopal Church in this town. Rev. S.
D. Adams presiding.
The meeting was for the purpose of
ascertaining the presiding elders salary
and assessing each charge in the district
according to their ability to pay. There
was an unusually large attendance, owing
to the fact that this distrct has a great
deal of new territory attached, and now
embraces moat of the Murfreesboro dis­
trict which was transferred from the Vir­
ginia CoDference. It is also a fact worthy
of meotloD that every charge from the
new territory was represented, while only
three on this side of the Roanoke sent

delegates were present:
