The National Eeform Conference Me morializes the President TO MENTION DEITY IS HIS PAPEES. J A Quarter-Centennial ConTention With OTer 100 Delegates Present. WHAT WAS DOSE, BOTH DAI ASD NIGHT The quarter centennial National Eeform Convention opened yesterday afternoon in the Eighth Street Reformed Presbyterian Church. John Alexander, Esq., of Phila delphia, presided. The Committees on Reso lutions and Enrollment were not present, so the meeting as not really organized. There ' were, however, probably over 100 delegates present. H. H. George, Secretary of the Executive Committee, reported the condi tion of the association as excellent; the finances were in gooa shape, the membership constantly increasing and the work expand ing over -the entire country. Rev. T. P. Stevenson, D. D., ot Philadel phia, corresponding secretary, spoke or the work being accomplished over the country by establishing district secretaries, which had been, done within the last year, and by the issuing of tracts and articles on the sub ject of various reforms. The speaker said that the schools of Cincinnati, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco were almost en tirely under the influence of either sectarian or atheistic sway. District Secretaries "Weir, Wills, Weaver and "Wiley reported the number of sermons, addresses, etc., de livered in their various localities. The reports of the various secretaries all contained evidence that thev were working hand in hand with the W. C. T. TJ. to secure prohibition. PETITION TO THE rKESIDEJTT. Eev. L X. Havs, D. D., of Allegheny, and Eev. D. McAllister, D.D., LL.D., presented to the convention the following paper which they had compiled, and di rected the meeting's attention thereto: To Benjamin Harrison, President of tlio United Mates: We. the undersigned petitioners, citizens ot the United States, would most respectfully call jour attention to the fact that this is pre eminently a Christian nation. Its foundations were laid in laith and prayer, in righteousness and the fear of God. Tbe Bible and the prin ciples of the Christian religion have been de clared by our highest judicial authorities to be a pait of the common law of the land. The Christian Sabbath has been secured to von in connection with your official duties by the Con- J rtitution, and it lias been naiiowea anu ooserveo. bj the great majority of our citizens ever since the landing of tbe Pilgrims at PI3 mouth Rock. During the Revolutionary War the Conti nental Congress, in an address to the people, distinctly recognized the tact that it was only through tbe merit and mediation of Jesus Christ that the nation could hope to obtain pardon and forgivness; and anring the late war the Senate of the United States, under very similar circumstances,expressed the same idea, in almost tbe very same words, in the resolu tion passed March 2, 1863. requesting the Presi dent to appoint a day for national prayer and humiliation, and In this distinct and emphatic recognition of Jesus Christ as the only source from w hich help could come in the midst of our national troubles, fully mnetecn-tvi entieths ot the people have alwajs most heartily con curred. In view of these facts, we do most respect fully but earnestly petition you. as the head andrepresentative ot this creat Christian na tion, that, in your State papers, and especially In 3 our Thanksgiving proclamations, you will in some suitable way, recognize the Christ of onr Christianity as the one of whom and from whom vt e obtain all temporal as well as spiritual blessings. GRATEFUL BE51EMBBANCE. Surely if, in the day of our trouble, we as a nation were compelled to look to Him, in the midst of our mercies w e ought not to forget Him. All this will seem only the more reasonable when we call to mind tbe tact that we. in com mon with all Christian nations, fix onr dates with reference to the year of our Lord, recog nizing His advent into our world as the greatest event in human history. The paper was accepted, as was also the plan ot Dr. Hays that a large number of names, as petitioners, be appended, not only of the Eeform Association, but of all other persons, and that on some date, early in the fall, the petition be taken to the President bv a committee. The paper was unanimously indorsed by the meeting, and numerous speeches in praise of it were made. President Alexander said: I was on tbe committee appointed bvthe citizens of Pittsburg and Allegheny to take a paper similar to .President Lincoln, and well do I remember how solemnly he listened to the petition, then took it and said earnestly: "I w ill try to do my duty to my God, my fellow men and my country." I am sure President Harrison will do similarly. Dr. X, N. Hays made a short speech on retormers, and said many were reformers who did not know they were, and instanced Judge "White as a brave man. Dr. T. P. Stevenson offered a resolution of thankfulness for the success of the Re form Association in the last 25 years. The resolution was accepted. The meeting was, adjourned until the evening. STEADFAST IIT THE FAITH. The evening session was opened by John Alexander, Esq., of Philadelphia, the first President of the association. Mr. Alexan der's remarks consisted of a brief review of the struggles of the progenitors of the asso ciation a quarter of a century ago. He re ferred to the principles tbey advocated and their steadfastness ot purpose and beauty ot character. The result ot their efforts, he said, is the association of to-day. The Eev. T. P. Stevenson, of Philadel phia, Corresponding Secretary of the asso ciation, followed with a memorial oration. He reviewed "Twenty-five Years of the National Eeform Movement." He spoke of the God ot the scriptures as the God of the nation, and the scriptures as the law of the nation, and called it the main spring of whatever reforms have been effected in this nation. He referred to the principles of the Liberal League, refuting them with the objects or the "God in the Constitution" party,, and srivinc a lengthy defense of the Sabbath. Jthe "White Cross and Law and Order Socie - ''ties and the "W. C. T. TJ. he classed as kin , dred with the .National Eeform Association in the objects which they expect to accom plish. The Eev. Dr. L IT. Hays, of Allegheny, came next, in an address on the "Purity and Stability of the Government in Rela tion to the Progress of Christianity." He compared the results between a sway of good and one of evil and showed the great benefit to be derived from a course of Christianity. -He referred to Biblical history to show the truth of his delineations, mentioning Sodom and Gomorrah, 2 ineveh, etc Prolessor Aarou Eittenhouse, D. D., Professor of English History and Litera ture, in Dickinson College, Pennsylvania, was to have addressed the meeting on "Popular Objections to National Eeform." He was not present, however, and the lec ture was omitted. The convention adjourned until this morning at 9 o'clock. It will continue until Thursday evening.

Pastor Hill RefJTcd to Resign, and on Attempt Warn Made to Oast Him A Venerable Clergyman's Flock Can't Agree "While the reporters were busy Monday night putting the list of licenses granted and refused in shape for publication, the congregation of the Seventh Presby terian Church, on Heerron avenue, were holding a lively meeting. Some ot the members of the church want the pastor, Eev. E. A. Hill, to resign, be cause, as they say, he is now too old to con tinue the work, and they are anxious to se cure a younger unci more active man. Mr. Hill doesn't quite see it in that light, and refuses to accede to their requests. The meeting was called by those who oppose the pastor to take a vote of the congregation on his retention or rejection. Mr. "Willis Booth, who favors the preacher, was made President, and, after a lively discussion, a vote was taken. Mr. Hill won by a majority of 12 votes. His opposers, after the meeting adjourned, held a short conference and decided to submit the matter to the Presbytery. Their deci sion is awaited with interest. Another meeting will be held next Wednesday. The members of the congregation who want to get rid of Mr. Hill olaim to be the moneyed men in the church and its real supporters. Mr. Hill has grown old, and his age, they argue, unfits him for the work. A-number of members have already left the church, and it is expected a split will be the result. The majority regret the unfor tunate state of affairs, since it will result in factional fights. HaFPi aOKWEGIANS. Some of the Dnnmark's Pnsscnccrs Go West Through Pittsburg-. Twenty-one car loads of immigrants reached Pittsburg from the east about 6 o'clock yesterday afternoon. They were destined to different parts of the "West, and after changing engines the two trains started over the Fort "Wayne road. Among the immigrants were some who came over in the ill-fated Danmark. They were all Norwegians and unable to talk English. Througli Interpieter Pitkin they told about the same story of the sudden col lapse of tbe engines and their rescue by the Missouri, as has already been published. The majority of them certainly didn't look any the worse after their thrilling experi ence. They praised the crews of both the Dan mark and Missonri. The cheerfulness of the Danmark sailors kept up the courage of the passengers during the critical period. The vessel was rapidly filling with water, and with the pumps out of repair it was evident to the passengers that the vessel could not have lasted much longer. An old German in broken English man aged to say: "When the Missouri was sighted, the shout of joy thjat went up from everybody on board was terrific. The pro visions of the Missouri were not sufficient to keep us well supplied, but by sacrificing a little we were enabled to live until we got ashore." THE SOUTHERN STATES Hbto Jnst Catered Upon an Era of Unpre cedented Prosperity. Mr. Charles A. Ashburner, the geologist, returned from a trip to Alabama yesterday. In a conversation with a Dispatch re porter he said yesterday: "From the ob servations I made of the Alabama coal fields I must say that the outlook is much better and more encouraging down South than it is in Pennsylvania. "The reason, I believe, consists in the fact that the production ot coal in Pennsylvania is too large for its demand, while in Ala bama the conditions are just the reverse. Manufacturing plants ot all kinds are rapidly increasing, and the general outlook for prosperity is better in the South to-day than it has ever been. LOWER RATES. Pig Iron Rates Reduced to and From tho Valley Points. The Youngstown committee have re duced the pig iron rates to and from the valley points. The new pig iron rates to Cleveland and Akron from these places are 60 cents for cinder and 65 cents for pig iron. The rate on cinder from the valley points to Pittsburg has been reduced from 65 cents to 60 cents, and pig iron from 80 cents to 65 cents. The rates to Uniontown and Scottdale will be 1.30 for scrap iron, blooms, etc, and 1.15 for pig iron and mnck iron. These rates will go into effect MayL Conductors Cnlled Down. Some of the patrons of the Castle Shannon Incline are complaining ot the discourtesies shown them by the conductors. In many instances passengers are said to be held for 20 minutes before they are taken up, and they say that the conductors often tell them they had better walk up.

The Famed Biblical Cnntntn Presented by a Colored Cast Really Creditable for nn Amatenr Performance. !Nym Crinkle, the severe dramatic and musical critic, could not have found a flaw in the rendition of the beautiful cantata, "Esther," by a galaxy of well-trained African amateur artists in the Avery Mis sion Church last night. No one liv ing could murmur a word against the size of the audience, either, as the array of fashionables would have made many a poor theatrical manager happy at 50 cents a head. Pity it is that a larger and better equipped hall had not been available, or the church treasury would have been favored far more munificently. The lights were not of the most modern manufacture, and at one time the darkness was very noticeable, rendering it quite diffi cult to see the characters on the stage. However, their sweet voices rang out the eoIos and choruses in such a charming man ner that the audience was fully compensated by what it heard, yet could not see. There is a melodious sweetness in the negro voice, and, as the sounds were waited from behind the dim footlights a strange, sweet odor like one has read of in fairytales also permeated the building, tbe interior of which was filled with fragrant flowers of various colors, and making the songs doubly impressive. The costumes were all very elaborate and appropriate. The principal characters in this cantata, the story of which is well known, as an adaptation from the Bible of the old story of King Ashasuerus, arc thebeautiful Queen Esther, Haman and Mordecai, the Jew, the latter of whom is to take charge ot the King's domain in conjunction with proud Haman. etc, etc. As the beautiful Queen Esther, Miss Kate Kelly made a distinct hit, both in her acting and singing: the only difficulty she has to overcome is her gestures. Her voice is clear and strong, and especially did she gain merited applause in the duet with the King, "What is it, Queen Esther?" Mr. Neale Waters, as King, just looked and acted like one, but his voice was rather weak at times for a monarch. Charles Waters, as Hainan, did not stand so well in the estimation of the audience on account of his extreme hauteur. This, of course, is very complimentary to Mr. Waters. Mrs. Susie Lee took the character of Zerish, and her voice was of a most pleas ing softness, and full of harmony. Mordecai, wtth big store whiskers, was portrayed by Mr. Marshall Chambers, and his "make up" was quite catchy, as was his acting. The song and chorus, "Haste to the Ban quet Hall," was. figuratively, eaten up by the audience, who drank up every word with open mouths and ears. This was greeted with vociferous applause and an encore. The other minor parts of the cantata were well bandied, while th"e chorus of 80 voices, including the children, was admirable well trained. Great credit is due to Stage Manager Harvey Neal. The church will net a very large sum. FOR KERVOUS DEBILITY Use Horsford's Acid Phosphate. Dr. H. T. Turner, Kasson, Minn., says: "I have found it very beneficial in nervous de bility, from any cause, and for indigestion." Tho Remarkable Sterling Silver Display Made by W. W. Wattles, 30 and 32 Fifth avenue, is attracting the attention we pre dicted, and is pronounced by the many visi tors the most elaborate and novel display ever seen in Pittsburg. We urge our read ers to be sure and call, as this special ex hibit will only last this week. MEETINGS. Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston 1 Railway Company, Pittsburg, April 20, 18S9.
