TEXAS IN 1850.
$200, it went into operation; and such has been the
success which has attended it, a more extensive system
of arrangements has been found necessary, and buildings
at the expense of $50,000, are in the course of
being erected, part of which are already completed.
A regular endowed College is contemplated, and Professorships
are to be endowed at the next convention of
the Baptist Church of Texas. There is an Educational
Society, and a Theological department connected with
the institution, and several students in the course of
preparation for the ministry.
We congratulate this enterprise, and hail it as the
harbinger of similar institutions coming up in aid of
supplying the State with an efficient ministry of home
production. All denominations must do something
towards educating laborers for their own State. Ief
will not do to rely mainly upon the north for aid. With
all the assistance the north and east can render in the
way of furnishing ministers and teachers, there is an
ample field, unoccupied, to employ all that can be educated
at home. Texas has to perform an important
part in furnishing evangelists for Mexico, and other
unevangelized countries. Hence the importance of
building up literary and theological institutions throughout
The public institutions of Texas involve important
considerations, and immeasurable is the responsibility
resting upon those who manage them. The church and
country are in a peculiar manner interested in their
character and influence.
