In season when our funds are low,
Subscribers are provoking slow,
A few supplies keep up tho flow
Of dimes departing rapidly.
But we shall see a sadder sight,, .
When duns pour in from morn to night,
Commanding every sixpence bright
To be forked over speedily.'
Our bonds and due hill nro arrayed ;
Each 'seal and signature displayed,
The holders vow they must lie paid,
With threats of Ittw.and chhncery.
Tlien to despair, we're almost driven,
There's precious little use in living,
When our last copper's rudely . riven
From hands that held it lovingly.
But larger,yet those dues shall grow,
When interest's added on below,
Length'ning our chin n foot or so,
When gazing at them hcipersisly.
'Tis so, that scarce hare we begun
To plead for time on a dun,
Before there comes another one,
Demanding pay ferociously.
The prospect darkens—on, ye brave
Who would our very bacon save;
Waive, patrons, all your pretext,waive,
~ A nd pay the printer cheerfully.
Aid it would yield us pleasure sweet,
'A few delinquents now to meet, ,
Asking of us.a clear receipt

For papers taken reglerly.
The Methodist Ohuro.h.
The Lay Delegation Movement in the
Methodist Episcopal Church.:
Doting the month of Juno next a
question will be submitted to the'votes
of the entire membership of the Meth
odist Episcopal Cburch, , male and fe
male, above the . ago, of 21 years, the
decision of which cannotlailtO ha're a
marked ,influence for good or evil,uPon
the, future Of that' largo and • "rapidly
growing denomination. This question,
is, whether the laity shall be.represen-
Led in the legislative assembly of the
Church, or whether the law-making
power shall remain, as it he's hereto-
fore, solely in the hands of the minis- 1
try. To fully apprechite the impor
tance which Methodists themselves, of
either way of thinking, attach to the
result of the forthcoming expressions
of the popular will, it will be well to
glance at some of the circumstances of
the origin and growth of Methodist
Episcopacy as an ecclesiastical system.
When John Wesley, in 1739, at the
solicitation of Whitefield, who had
preceded him in the work, commenced
his public ministries as a fluid preacher
in England, he had evidently no de
sign of organizing a church; nor does
it appear that subsequently, when he
numbered his followers by thousands,
and many societies had grown up, and
were, with their pastors, under his
supervising care, be had any thought
of constructing an Ecclesiastical sys
tem, outside and independent of the
'English Church, of which ho himself
lived and died a member. He institu
ted a Society as an Evangelizing Sup
plement to the Established Church,
and all the distinguishing'pecaliarities
of this Society, except those pertain
ing to religious faith and life, were the
result of accident. In nothing is Wes
ley's sagacity and fitness for leader
ship more .elearly manifest than in
"that bright intuition' which, as .by a
'flash, discerns the 'true meanings pf
things present; and which, in the same
iastant,•adapts itself to the shifting cir
cumstances of,thehottr.or day." Lay
preaching forced itself on .his attention
as a good thing, and he adopted at;
the class meetings arose by'accident,
and became a part of his system. Be
ing but a Society, and not a Church.
Wesleyan Methodism was ruled by its
founder with almost absnlute sway,
and no Governmental functions or In
dependent Liberty of action were al
to his preachers or to the people.
In 1784, Mr. Wesley took the first
step toward the organization of a
"Church," and in this, as in other
measures, he seems to .havelollowed
only_where necessity or well-defined
expediency led him. Previous to this
time Methodists had considered them-
Selves as Episcopalians, and had re
ceived the sacraments in tke churches
and from the ministers of 'the Estab
lishment; but in Ameriea there were
now some 84 Methodist preachers and
15,000 Methodist laymen. They were
scattered all over the country, and the'
Episcopal churches
,being few and in
accessible to inany,.this large bOdy of
Christians was deprived'ef all "church"
relationship, 'and of participation in
the sacraments. Wesley, pitying their
condition, and yet wilthing to avoid
"irregular" action, besought' the Bish
op of London to ordain ministers who
should administer ' the , sacraments
among the American Methodists of
America. The request being' refused

necessities of 'the cited `to himself or

General Conferences, until 1812, all
traveling ministers of the denomina
tion were entitled to seats and votes.
Since that time the General Confer
epees have consisted of delegated mem
bers—themselves ministers, and chosen
by ministers. The church edifices 'are
held by laymen, but for the use of the
church, and the pulpits can only be
occupied by:such ministers as are ap
pointed; by the bishops.' Probably no
other church — organization exists so
completely under clerical control:
This has been owing to the influence of
no especial class in the church ;. the
ministers have arrogated to theinsehies
no more than. has been - willingly con
ceded by 'the people. There has been'
a widespread repugnance to change
The Church has boon well enough as
it is. There has probably been no
time when then the laity, taken as a
whole, have been in advanee .of their
ministers on the subject of laymen's
rights. The subject of Lay Represen
tation first began to be agitated among
the. Methodists half a centurragoi and
in 1826 the Rev. D. B. Dorsey was ex
pelled frbm the Baltimore Atinual Con
ference for circulating a' paper called
."Mutual Rights," 'the object of which
was to advocate the introduction • of_
laymen into the Councils of the Church.
.An ,appeal was taken to , the' General
Conference 'of 1828, when ?the expul-'
sion of :Mr. Dorsey:.was. confirmed.'
This and other action on the same sub
ject, taken by ,that body, led - to the se
cession of a largo number of ministers
and laymea who originated the "Meth
odist Protestant Church," which, to
day numbers—together with the"Meth- - ,
odist Church," which is an offshoot
from it—no less than 122,000 mem
bers. The subject continued to be die.
cussed by many who preferred, to'in•
licence the Church from within rather
than to leave it. .In 1840 the General
C,onforcoce said :. "We should proye.
recreant to the trust committed to us
Were we in the slightest degree' to
yield to the Spirit of innovation." The
General Conference of 1852 replied to
petitions for a change, that there was
"a strong opposition in the great mars
of the meinbership to' the proposed
change," and that therefore they deem
ed it "inexpedient to alter the econo
my of the allure')." During that year
(1852), a paper called The Philadelphia
Christian Advocate was started for the
purpose of advancing Lay Representa
tion. In 1856 the General ConferenCe
spoke of the matter as one which
might be practicably dealt with in the
future, but thought that any change .
would be inexpedient at that time.
Petitions bearing on that subject were
presented 'to - the General Conference of
1560. It was amply discussed, both in
committee and in General Conference,
which finally resolved, That we, the
delegates of the Annual Conferences of
the 'Methodist Episcopal Church in
General Conference assembled, hero.
by, approve of the introduction of
Lay Representation into this body
when it shall be ascertained,. that. the
Church desires it." In order that the
desire of the Church in the premises
might be ascertained, measures were
adopted.for having the question put to
vote in every annual conference ' and
in every congregation of the Church,
in the years of 1861 and 1862. In the
moan time the eivil,war arose, and lar
ger anclanore exciting intorests,absorb
ed the , popular attention. The vote
was very light:, having been taken in
compriratii , ely few churches. - As re
pbrted" at the General Conference' of
1864 it .stood: Of. miniaters,.ll,33B
votes for and, 3,069 against; of lay vo
ters,, 28,884 and 47,855 against—giving
a'elerical majority of 1,731, and a lay
majority of 18,971 against Lay Repro
sentation in the General Conference.
The report on Lay Delegation adopted
by this Conference declared, "That
while we reaffirm our approval of Lay
RepreSentation in the General Confer
ence whenever it shall be ascertained that
the Church desires see no such
declaration of, the popular, will us to
justify us in taking advanced action in
relation to it."
In July, 1860, a paper was 'Started
in Neiv York City by a company of
New York laymen,' for the purpose of
advocating the interests of the laymen
in the church. It bus been odited by
the Rev. Dr. George Crooks, who has
had as his associates'seme of The ablest
writers of the deribmination. The spe
cial work of this journal has been the
dissemination of inthlligence r concern
ing the lay representative movemeot,
and arguments favorabfe thereto ; and
such had been the change ih'the, pop.
feeling'among' the Methodists,
,that none of their papers official and
unofficial, ,are openly ,opposed to the
"innovation" onee ,so strenuously re
sisted,.and all but one or two are out
speken'in dts ftivOr.
. .
Previous' to•the session of the Gen
eral,Conference, in May,' 1868, most
of the Annual Conferences had adopted
resolutions favoring some . action on
the subject of lay,representation by
that body, , and ; petitions for, and
Against such a course hed been • circu

After careful consideration, arid dili

• The third resolution reads: "Should

should three•fourths of all the mem

,Tbough three separate and distinct.
proceSses are thus marked out,' all Of
which are requisite to the completion
.of the change in polity of the Church,
no doubt is felt that if the approval of
Abe : people is.expressed, both the min
isters in their .A.nnual Conferences and
their.reptesentatives in the General
'Conference Of 1872, will loyally carry
out the will of the laity; and but • lit
tle, if any, doubt is felt . by those' beet
informedin the Methodist Church ,as
to what the
_will the ,lay members
of their church will 'be; this,, indeed,
seems to' beintliCated by the tone of
theWilenominational" press, which is
the reflector; . no lessthan the leader,
of popular opinion. 'The radical change
which - has come over the` Methodist
Episcopal Church in the last 40 years
may be attributed to several causes.
The character of the relation between
the ministers and lay members has
gradually changed. At first the great
body'of the laity were poor add un
cultivated. 'The intelligencel.'of the
church was. largely in the-- ministry.
and its very existence was maintained
,by the heroic and self,stteriftcing la.
hors of the itinerant preachers, who re•
ceiVed id return' but food 'for themseli'es
and their' horses, and perhaps a suit of
clothes, each year or two. The church
es were scattered, travel was tedious
and expensive, gratuitous attendance
at a Ccitiferenee in 'a distant town was
a privilege not 'to be desired; arid' so
the laity readily acquiesced irtithe pot.
icy maintained by ?their spiritual
rulers. Things are not so now; the
best' businee.s talent and legislative
experience is now to be found among
the laity, who aro as ready to
devote Ahem to the interest of the
Church, as they are to peur out their
thousands a year to its support, and
the'maintonance of its institutions.
The financial interests of the Ghurch
also, have become' gigantic in their
proportions, and queried whether
their management should- he left ex
clusivelye in the hands of a class of
men who are called to the sole work
of preaching the Gospel. The official
pUblishing interests'of the Church rep
resent a capital of nearly $1,500,000.
The Missionary Society receives and
disburses annually from $600,000 to
$BOO,OOO. The Church Extension So
ciety is appealing to the Church for
hundreds of thousands. The 'Metho
dists have six theological institutions,
23 uniyereities and colleges, and 85
seminaries of different grades, all of
which are more or less under the con
trol of the Conferences of the' Church.
There aro many who advocate- the
participation of the
,laity in church
government on the ground of ,abstract
right, but this mingling of temporal
with spiritnal'affairs has its influence
on many; , 'who. would: not trouble
themselves much about church gov
ernment if the cafes of 'the ministry
were solely of a spiritual nature.
The Methodist Episcopal Chiireh,
too, has' become 'essentially Modified
in its character; Ithd within the, last
'few "years has become••a' corporate
body under the laws of both:Ohio:and
New •York. The "Board ; :of Trustees
