HARRISBURG BIBLB SOGIATT
Our society has been in existence nearly half
a century, and we rejoice to say that, instead
of growing feeble with age, it is now more
vigorous than ever.
For many years it„was the custom of the vari
ous evangelical churches of our place to dis
pense with their usual services on the Sunday
evening of our anniversary and hold a union
meeting of all the friends of the Bible cause, at
which our annual report was presented, an ap
propriate discourse delivered, and a collection
taken up. In consequence, however, of the in
crease in our population and the number of our
churches, it was found very disadvantageous to
close so many places of public worship, and at
the suggestion of the Pastoral Association of
our city, the executive committee of our society
determined to have two Bible discourses de
livered, cotemporaneously ,in different churches.
This was accordingly done, to the great satis
faction of all the friends of the cause. Collec
tions were taken up in both churches, and the
community generally was waited upon for con
tributions during the week following, by fifteen
committees of ladies, appointed for the purpose
by the pastors of the various churches.
There has been no special call upon us, as a
local society, for any unusual distribution of
the scriptures. The hospitals and the camps in
our vicinity have been supplied from time to
time in part by the Secretary sod others out of
the depository of the County Society, and princi
pal ly by Rev. Mr. Davie directly from the stores
of the Penn'a. Bible Society.

From th above report it will be perceived
that the village of Mil ersburg, in proportion to
its population, has far exceeded all other districts
of the county in the liberality of its contiibu
dot s to the Bible cause during the past year.
The society of that place was cordially congratu
lated upon its energy and success, and it is
hoped that such a praiseworthy example will
stimulate others to strive after a similar effi
It was the occasion of much regret to the
convention that no reports were on hand trom
the other auxiliaries, viz: Wiconisco, Lykens
t.twn, Gratztown, Berryeburg, Uniontown,
Armstrong Union, Matamoros and Highspire.
But these associations will doubtles be restored
to their former activity when the executive
committee shall have discharged the duty en
trusted to it, of visiting and encouraging them
to take fresh heart in this good cause.
The tunnel report of the executive commit
tee was next called for, which is here subjoined:
ANNUAL REPORT OF THS EXECUTIVE OORNITTsE OF

city, and to continue, even in the midst of
troublous times, to labor together fur the exten
sion of our Redeemer's kingd m by the dissem
ination of the Divine Woid throughout our
own and foreign lands.
In consequence of the change in the manner
of reporting adopted by the auxiliaries, the
Executive Committee have but little left to
them to present for the consideration of the
convention ; unless, indeed, through some ex
tra activity of their own during the year they
come into possession of information that would
be interesting or profitable to the wetting.
Such hes, however, not been the case during
the year that has just elapsed. On the other
hand, the committee is constrained to acknow
ledge that instead of manifesting extraordinary
zeal and energy, they have filed to discharge
the duly assigned them at our last meeting.
viz: that of arranging a series of meetings to be
held in those districts of the county where the
local s etches seemed to be in a languishing
condition. The committee beg leave, however,
to offer in extenuation of this apparent neglect,
the extremely unsettled state of the country and
the agitated condition of the public mind as
the reason why such eff,rts were not made.
The special reports of a number of the auxili
aries were handed in to the last convention and
incorporated with its minutes They were also
published in the daily papers of the county.
The mammary of the same, and of the opera
tions of the county society for the year, was

HARRISBURG, Nov. 18th, 1862.
The President then called upon the Rev. Mr.
Davis to give some account of his operations
among the soldiers. Hie narrative was interest
ing and suggestive. For more than a year he
has been engaged as a voluntary colporteur in
the camps and hospitals in and about Harris
burg, sustained in part by &small appropriation
by the last Legislature, and by contribu
tions from the Pennsylvania Bible Society,
Young Men's Christian Association of Phila
delphia, and from private Individuals. He has
distributed upwards of fit e thousand testaments
donated by our society and the Pennsylvani;
Bible Society, and great quantities of religious
tracts and papers, the gifts of benevolen' per
sons in Harrisburg and elsewhere. He has en
deavored to act as pastor among the thousands
of recruits that have been sweeping through the
camps, and his labors of love have been grate
The question of the propriety of continuing
the indiscriminate gratuitous distribution of
testaments among the soldiers, having been
broached, an animated and protracted discus
sion arose, which was listened to with manifest
interest by the audience, until a late hour. It
was feared on the one hand; that any change
in our mode of operations might have an inju
rious effect upon the recipients, leading them
to suspect a design on our part to impose upon
sham tinting ffftrs.

then:, and that it might restrain the liberality
of some who would infer that now their con
tributions would be no longer required ; whilst
on the other hand, it was urged that the un
precedented demand upon the resources of the
society rendered it exceedingly desirable to
husband its resources and increase their amount
by every proper means. That to allow the
soldiers the privilege of p4yinz som , thing for
the books or making some small odi ribution
to the society when they desired to do so, would
be gratifying and profitable to themsel yes, and
at the same time turnish the me -es for sup
plying further de-tituti ns that might other
wise be beyond the reach of the society.
The matter was finally adjusted by the adop
tion of the following resolution :
Resolved, That in our future distribution of
Testaments among the soldiers in the camps
about Harrisburg, we pursue tr e same plan fol
lowed in our operations elsewhere, viz : receiv
ing, in whole or in part, the price of the book
from nmse who are able and willing to pay it,
and ri,l,qoiring also donations from such as desire
to aid us in this good work
Thus while every soldier will be supplied as
heretofore, our colporteurs will no longer be
instructed, to refuse to receive whatever any
of the soldiers may wish to contribute towards
the universal diffusion of the Divine Word.

Rapid Movements of the Army.
EVACUATION OF WARRENTON
THE NEW BASE.
JACKSON FOILED, &c,
Notwithstanding the unfavorable state of the
weather, and the tendency of the sacred soil to
produce a most disagreeable quality of mud, it
is understood here that the army is making
rapid progress southwards, and General Burn
side's headquarters will to day be at Freder
icksburg. General Pleasanton's Cavalry ad
vance have litld Falmouth, opposite Freder
icksburg,sir Saturday last, and a strong
corps of eng" eers have been bust in repairing
the railroad etween there and Aquia creek,
and in recopstructiug the wharf at the latter
place, fronrwhich the army will be principally
fed dnringits onward progress to Richmond.
For wharf purposes canal boats are used, and
all that could be procured here and at Balti
more have been taken possession of by the
government. The bridge building brigade,
with their Beet of pontoon boats, are at Fred
ericksburg before now, and will soon span that
river with their serviceable bridges.
The change of the army's base has been con
sumated with unusual speed. Warrenton, late
ly the very centre of the army, has been evac
uated, all the stores removed, and is probably
by this time occupied by the rebels. General
Sigel still holds Gainesville, but it is doubtful
whether he will longer remain there. The gov
ernment trains still ran out to )fanassas Junc
tion, but it Is probable the road will soon be
again abandoned, and the bridges destroyed.
THE REBELS IN THE VALLEY.
Stonewall Jackson's force is reported to have
moved up the Valley to Manassas and Chester
Gaps. The change of base and the new direc
tion in which the army is advancing renders his
presence a matter of secondary importance. He
cannot hope now to sweep through some of the
passes of the Blue Ridge into the rear of the
army, and destroy or capture its trains, inas
much as its base of supplies will be from Aquia
Creek, and not from Washington, and to reach
the former point he would have to traverse the
whole country in front of Washington for the
distance of a hundred miles.
The opinion now is, that if Jackson is in the
Valley with any such force as represented, that
General Lee, as soon as he learns of General
Burnside's movements, will recall him, and
with his whole force fall back toward Rich
There were no rebel forces in ibis vicinity,
and quiet possession has been taken by our
engineer corps under the protection of a gun
boat. Already the Nellie Baker, an old Penin
sula acquaintance, is on the line from Wash
ington to the Creek.
