Rev. and Mrs. Francis A. Brown and Mrs. T.M. Fitzpatrick returned Saturday evening from the Episcopal Convention in Macon.

The convention was marked by a unanimity and smoothness that was very gratifying while the important matters that came before it were disposed of with wisdom as well as dispatch.

The question of the division of the Diocese, which has been brought up again this year, and the financial way having been opened, division was decided upon. The line of division will be settled at the next convention, but it is most probable that Washington will be separated from Greensboro and Madison and be put into the Eastern Diocese. The division is made at the request of the Bishop, who, on account of the growth of the Episcopal Church in Georgia, finds it impossible to administer the affairs of the Diocese in a satisfactory manner.

Rev. F. A. Brown was appointed Archdeacon of Augusta Archdeaconry, with residence as at present in Washington. This will be in addition to, but not an interference with the regular work which Mr. Brown now has.

The convention voted to meet next year in Columbus.
