AN ESTIMABLE LADY DECEASED
Mrs. Mary A. Brady, the president of the Ladies'
Aid Association of Philadelphia for the welfare of
the Union soldiers,
died at her•residence, in West
Philadelphia, on Friday. The funeral -will take
place on Wednesday ; the burial in Mount Moriah
Cemetery. The deceased- was one of those esti
mable ladles that seem tograce the earth with hea
venly attributes. In her devotion to the wounded
and sick soldiers she occupied a most prominent
self-imposed position, and it may be truly said that
it was the cause of her demise. Like the late la
mented Miss Anna M. Ross, she died, it may be
said, with the "harness on her back," and almost
as suddenly. She had attended the soldiers on the
battle-field, and being in the prime of life, was capa
ble of great endurance, but she over-tasked her
Strength, resulting in disorganized action of the
heart. On her, return from Culpeper, Va., at
the time of General Kilpittrick , s raid; in Febru
ary, she was seized with palpitation of the
heart, arising from' the unexpected warlike ex
.eitement that then occurred. The roar of can
non, the rattling of musketry, the, dashing of
the cavalry, were too much for her, awl from
this moment may be dated the insidious disease
that terminated in death. In the language of an
anonymous author, her many friends may truly,
Rest, angel, rest—
Wait th' Almighty will,
Then rise unchanged
And be an angel still. "
Mrs. Brady has left a family of five little children
to the protection of their kind father. We might also
say of this patriotic Christian lady, that she had re
cently collected some sanitary stores which she in
tended to convey to the wounded soldiers in Vir
ginia. As jher death was fast approaching, she sug
gested to her husband that ho should personally con
vey those articles direct to the wounded in Virginia,
which mission he intends to fulfil at an early day.

'The committee state that an appropriation of three

The jury in the case of the woman who was run
over on the Second and Third-streets Passenger
Railway track, a number of months since, at Ame
rica and Oxford streets, returned a verdict yester
day, assessing the damages at $6,000. This may be
considered a very moderato verdict; though exem
plary in this way ; it may have a tendency to in
duce passenger-railway companies generally to em
ploy more competent men to attend to the driving
of the ears. To accomplish this better wages should
be paid the drivers, and several hours should bo de
ducted from the time in which they are now
compelled to labor. It was recently developed
before the coroner's jury that the drivers on the
Race and Vinestreet road were compelled to labor
for seventeen hours consecutively. Such an arrange
ment as this affords them no time for recreation, and
but little time to sleep. The result is that compe
tent and careful drivers will not accept such a posi
tion, unless necessity compels thorn to do so. The
.right kind of men do not tail to relinquish such em
ployment the very moment something bettor offers.
These remarks equally apply to the conductors.
The positim of driver and conductor on the passen
her cars is entirely too laborious, because it ex
austs nature, and nobody can violate the rules of
he old dame without incurring , the penalty. The
'lncumbents, no matter how careful or skilful they
may be, cannot fail to become drowsy atsoine time
during the working hours. The general result of
such excessive labor is that ignorant, brutal, ungen
tlemanly, uncouth, profane, reckless men, to a con
siderable extent, are employed on the cars. Wo
"daily hoar some of the few remaining gentlemanly
conductors express a wish to get something to do
niore congenial to the feelings of humanity. Should
they retire their places will be supplied by more
common 1110 D, and hence the travelling public will
be subject to low, vulgar abase: The time was when
every conductor was a gentleman, every driver skill
ful, when the people found It a pleasure to ride in
the cars, but now coarse jests and profanity are
quite common in those vehicles, which some con
ductors, rather than check, laugh at. It was not
long since that four ladles, whoSe Christian feelings
were shockingly outraged by profane:remarks, had
to get out of a car at .I?ourth and Walnut streets,
after ten o'clock at night, and walk several squares
before reaching their homes.
To obviate this, and perhaps similar occurrences,
and to arrange the matter so as to remove the nui
sance complained of, the several railroad companies
should employ gentlemen for conductors,
least moral and skilful men for drivers. The best
way to do this would be to adopt the ten-hour system
for labor give the conthictors twenty-five or thirty
cents per hour, and the drivers fifteen or twenty for
the same period. This would make life more wean,-
ble, and the days of pleasantness in the cars would
come again. Then there would be less killing or
maiming . men, women, and children, and there
would be a corresponding decrease in verdicts of
damages against railroad companies. Until some
such state of things is established, the court juries
will continuo to deservedly give almost any amount
of damages that may be claimed fur passenger rail
road maiming or homicides.
It is not certain that , the draft will take place to
day. The quota of the city is more than full. Some
of the wards are in excess, while others are defi
cient. An evening paper of yesterday, among other
things, says the deficiency in the First ward is over
200. The simple truth is, the First ward has an ex
cess of five over the quota. -

we did not leare,;.,,Wis alleged to have been the
active thief, is also imeifsfody. Hogan was arrest
ed in Philadelphia, on Saturday evening, by U. S.
Detective Lewis. It is said that one of the prison

he handsomely furnished, the whole property being
estimated at ..$lO,OOO in value.
Colonel Chormaii, who was arrested a few days
since because of some informality in certain papers
relating to the subsistence department, has been
honorably 'discharged. It was a mistake to arrest
the Colonel. The affair was simply this : That,
months since, payment was made for subsisting cer
tain troops, and the papers were all properly drawn
up to this effect, and the bills were paid. They in
cluded the subsistence of the nien previous to their
being mustered into the service of the country.
This the. Government would not allow. A. misap
prehension, therefore, arose on this subject, which
led to the arrest of the Colonel, who was entirely in
nocent of any fraud. Hence his prompt discharge.

Lucinda Cassin was arraigned at the Central
Station ; yesterday afternoon, on the charge of steal

placed confidence. The defendant had no home
and was hungry. She was admitted to the house,
and indulged in the hospitalities thereof. Besides
this, the miserable creature was permitted to lodge
there. Facility having thus been obtained, she
stole the articles, some-of which were recovered at a
pawn shop where she had pledged them. She was
committed to answer.

This Convention adopted a plan for permanent o'rgaui

expressed his cordial approbation of their mission.
Various meetings on the samesubject have been held in
Philadelphia, Xenia, Ohio, and Illinois, and there is

Rev. Prof. James M. Willson, chairman of the com
mittee to report a minute on the death of John Calvin,
reported the following:
John Calvin was born in the year 1609, in the north.
western part of France. His parents were Catholics,
and most of his near relatives so remained, and to such
a degree, that they sought and obtained permission to
change their names, that the might not be identified
with one whom they regarded as the ringleader in
heresy.ln his boyhood he gave evidence of extraordi
nary abilities, and in consequence received a thorough
education. Apprehended by the grace of God, and led
to Christ before the 18th year of his, age, while in attend
ance upon lectures in the University of Paris, he at
once became a most diligent student of
the word of God,
and soon a prominent and devoted reformer. The ene
mies of the Gospel sought to seize him, and for a few
years he became a wanderer, finding a temporary. borne
in Navarre, or on the borders of the Rhino, or in Italy.
In 11,35 he was providentially led to Geneva, whero.3vith
the exception of three years of banishment on account of
his fidelity to Christ, the cause of truth, and pure morals,
lie passed the residue of his days in labors unceasing
and most important to the interests of God's kingdom
on earth. Hie departure took place May 27th, 1564, in
the 65th year of his age. It is not for us,
.- nor for this
age, to fix the place among men for John Calvin This
has been long determined. The admiration and enco
miums of his friends, comprising all the friends of or
thodox doctrine, and the bitter and persistent calumnies
of his enemies, have long since placed him highest
among the great lights of the Church and of the world.
His " Institutes or the Christian Religion, ' ' published.
in Re'last revision in the 25th year of his age, attest his
pre-eminence as a theologian. As a biblical critic and
expositor, he was far in advance of any of his contem
poraries. Deeply learned in the original tongues, he
ham left his commentaries on a large portion of the
Word of God, which the most advanced scholars in this
important department constantly consult with incroas
ing confidence. As a scholar he had few compeers in
his own day. Bayle, no friend of his views, pronounces
him to have been at the age of twenty-three years the
most learned man in Europe. Calvin was the legisla
tor of the' Reformation. His capacious intellect em
braced in its wide grasp the true character and atruc
lure of the Church of Ood and his systematic mind re
duced to a Scriptural-order the comparatively crude
ideas orecciesiardical government evolved daring the
earlier stages of the great Reformation. To tam,
under God, more than to any or all his contem
poraries, is due the system of Presbyterian Church
government, as exemplified in the Reformed
`Churches of Western and Central Europe, and subse
quently in the British Islands. his counsel was sought
by all the leaders of the Reformation in all the evan
gelical Churches, and by his correspondence with the
learned and pion/3 in all the reformed nations, kings and
Princes, with ministers and church courts, he was the
chief Instrument in securing that unity of judgment
and action among them that marked hie age. As a
principal professor of the college and theological semi
thousanden dentshich was attebded at times by two
stfrom all countries of Europe, he sent
forth thousands of pastors and teachers, who became
the exponents and defenders or scripture truth, disci
pline, and order. -
knowledge, teaching', became a
fountain of Christian and also of Liberty,
to the nations in his own day, and, directly or indirect
ly, to the world , now. Occupying so many important
dePartmente of labor with unparalleled assiduity, his
great soul rapidly exhausted the frail earthly terteuoat,
and he died at fifty- five years of age, literally worn oat
in the service of the Crinrch and of his Master,
leaving to the Church and to mankind such a legacy
of Christian truth and principles as have never been left
her by any other uninspired man. Calvin was long
regarded, even by the friends of Calvinistic doctrine,
as severe and morose even in social and domestic
life. Later and more mpartial researches, especially
the eirimination of his extensive and now published
correspondence, bring him before ns in a far different
aspect as the trusty counsellor of the most eminent
and tried saints of God, as the tender and loving hue.

invited to address the Court, and said: ft affords me
notch pleasure to appear before you, and I esteem it
a great privil,llo4'to address your Reverend , Body, and
though a stranger, I feel that I am among brethren;

crowned our efforts in India with success. True, our
senior missionary, Dr. Campbell, has gone the way of
all the earth; but he fell with his armor on, and our
brethren that remain are meeting with success. As
another - operation, we have organized at our recent

not In the common but in the higher sense of the word—

every evil; as to our ecclesiastical standing we have
a common origin --and parentage—the Martyrs and

Conference opened with. the customary devotional ex
Superintendent Bishop in the chair.
A discussion on the propriety of publishing the ap
pointments of the ministers in the churches, in this city
and vicinity, was continued for some time, and'adopted
in the affirmative. :
Elifer ... N.Williams complained that the people: of
Rainsville were very ranch disappointed, last night, in
consequence of Elder Biddle not filling the appoint.
Elder Biddle said that he intended to preach there,
but was delayed'until the last boat, as he thought, was
gone. Excused by common consent.
Elder Butler offered the following:
Whereas, Owing -to the representations of the elder
of this charge, there seems to be a fear of the Confe
rence failing, on account of the want of funds to sustain
it as our Conferences are generally sustained; and,
whereas, this Conference not being aware of the fact,
did, on Saturday, most magnanimously vote the com
piler of the minutes the munificent sum of twenty-five
cents; therefore, in view of the embarrassments of the
Conference, as the compiler of the minutes, I most re
spectfully present to the house the sum voted, hoping
that my liberality may be rightly appreciated, and my
actions not misconstrued, as they generally are.
ELDER BUTLER CR*SURED
On motion, it was agreed that the documentbe regard
ed as an insult to the Conference.
Right Rev. - Ross wanted to know how the- Con
ference was to regard the brother who, by its vote, had
insulted this body. He wished to know what position
he now occupied.
Elder Talbotiliought that
the vote should be consi
dered a censure on Elder Butler's conduct.
Right Rev. Ross declared that such action was lucon
Elder Butler wanted to know what there was in the
document that could be construed as offensive. and de
clared that the Conference had insulted him.
Elder Coleman said that it was too had that this whole
Conference was to be insulted by a boy.
Elder Butler. There comes an insult from the embodi
ment of divinity.- [Laughter.]
Elder Lougen tendered to Elder Butler the sum of five
dollars, the same amount voted to Elder Giles for that
Elder Butler tendered - the money to the Conference.
and subsequently returned it to Elder Lougen.
On motion it watt agreed that this whole matter be in
Elder Butler wanted, but failed to obtain 'permis
sion to go borne, insomuch as it had been decided that
he had insulted the Conference.
It wm resolved that accurate information be published
in the minutes as to the number of members and min
isters of Zion connection.
It was agreed that the hour of Conference prayer meet
ing be changed to six o'clock, instead 01 eight.

LETTERS FROM BRITISH COLOMBIA
A letter was read from Rev. James J. Moore. dated
Richfield, assuring the Conference that he was still at
work, endeavoring to prepare himself for immortality,
and asking the privileges to vote on all questions of
discipline by proxy.
Elder Washington thought that the cause of Zion was
retrograding in California, to which brother Moore was
assigned. There was a time when we could get reports
of prosperity of churches and Sunday schools, but it has
been reduced to a mere letter.
Right Rev. Ross was of the same opinion as Elder
Washington, and thought that Elder Moore was treated
with an indulgence not usually meted out to any one
Elder John A. Williams said that James J. Moore had
done more than he would have done under tho circum
stances; that Brother Moore had sent to the Superin
tendents for preachers of several churches that were
waiting to receive them, and that, in some cases, assur
ing them that the money would be sent if the ministers
were only forthcoming.
STRICKEN FROM VIE MINUTES
On motion, it was agreed that all notion relating to the
memorial of Elder Butler be stricken from the minutes.
SUPEiIifT.EiDENT R 033 CA.E
' The Select Committee appointed to inquire into the
nature of the resignation of the Rev. Peter Ross, would
report that they do not consider that they have any
risdiction in the premises, inasmuch as the constitution
of our connection provides: First; that in the event of a
Superintendent ceasing to travel during the interval of
general Conference, that the Annual Conferences shall
act on, and finally determine all such cases. Secondly,
your Committee are of the opinion that the Rev. gentle
man is not entitled to a seat -in this General Conference
until his case is determined by the Annual Conference,
according to law. -
After a good deal of discussion as to the propriety and
legality of this Conference acting on Right Rev. Ross'
case, that gentleman, in a masterly manger, was enter
ing upon his defence, when it was elicited that he was
not called before the committee.
Elder S. T. Jones, chairman, said that, as the com
pi Wee had deemed that the General Conference had no
jurisdiction in the case, it was not necessary to summon
Superintendent ROBB before them, and merely gave an
opinion as to his relation with this body.
The Conference, by an almost unanimous rote, re
fused to adopt the report of the committee on the case of
At the request of Right Rev. Ross, a committee of five,
consisting of Elders Brooks, Lougen, Barcroft, Wash
ington? and Hicks, was appointed, to whom was re
ferred his case.
