DtSCRIPTION of THB PARLIAMENT,
Tlien followed a vn'y interesti'ig de
scription of the various raota and na
tionalities represented nt the parlia
ment, followed by'crlttoixmi onlled out
of the following periodicals unfavora

pal RjeorJer, and in favor of the move
ment tho speaker read extracts from
the Congregationalist, the Evangelist,
Chicago Standard, Jewish Messenger,
the Buffalo Chnrch Advertiser, the Ln
theran Evangelist end the Union Sig
nal After carefully considering the quoi
tion mid taking an Rflirtnativff view of
the matter and convinced that the par
liament would bo conducive of good
risulte, the spiaker said it must be
con fees id that :t ..- impossible us yet
to indicate any positive results arising
from the movement, but to his mind
there were many points, which he
minutely explained, which in tims
wero certain to produce the results de
sired by its promoter.-'. The argument
briefly was that the bringing together
of repreanttitiues of thirty nations and
the great opportunity of com
paring th principles and phases
or tiieir different beliefs must of neces
sity lead to an assimilation of opinion
npon Home points in common between
th m and tno fact of their meeting to
gether must tend to an increase of
brotherly love which was the banis of
Christianity. Tho speaker made rof
crence to the fact that the proceedings
weie opened dally by the payinj of the
Lord's prayer, which all joined, if
not in language in spirit.
Mr. Duvies concluded with a hymn
wbich exactly interpreted the appeal
of nis arguments. The discussion was
continued by D.inisl J. Evuns, wio
spoke at length in support of the pap r
and urgued that it must be productive
of gr.-ut gool, as it elorated all men
upon the samo platform and this was
according to the commission given by
bit. JONES' liEMAIiKS.
Dr. Jonea, of Providence, followed in
an excellent spoech upon various phases
of the movement and more particular
ly upon tho unique character of the
parliament in its universality as the
only one of the kind iu the history of
Rev. D. P. Jones, of the Tabernacle,
Hyde Park, in a pithy speech referred
to the lessons to all professing Chris
turns taught by the history of the pur
Jiameut, viz. not to bs conservative in
their opinious and to be mure tolerent
to all men.
Mr. Jenkins, of Pardons, drew at
tention to s-jveral iustancas in Mj
lmniiuedlsm and other creeds where
there were examples in rules of living
that would put professing Christians
to shame and the parliament, he hoped,
would prove beneficial in this respect.
The Kev. Isaac Thomas, of Rend
ham. and Thomas J. Lawis, of Provi
dence, continned tho discussion, fo!
lowod by ltov. Mr. (Jeorge, of Pitistoa,
who expressed a hope thatall Christian
churches wonld make an effort to carry
out the lessons gleaned from the reli
gious parliament, (iwyfryn Evans, of
South Wales, having made a few re
marks, the discussion closod by the
Rev. David Jones, of Hyde Park, who,
iu a spirited address, referred to the
udverse criticism which hod come al
most entirely from the Episcopalian
press, nnd showed tho narrow and in
tolerant spirit which mamfostsd itself
iu this country in the same manner ns
shown by the Episcopal press iu tho old
country, but one great lesson observed
w. that of tolerance to all people and
to bo a light to o;io another.
It wus decided to publish tho piper
as read in the "Gsnhadwr." The Revs.
D. P. Jones and Isaao Thomas spoke
upon the position of the "(Jenhadw'L
and a general opinion was exprossed
that it should bo subscribed for more
freely amongst tho connection.
THK AFTERNOON MEETING,
The afternoon meeting was also con
ducted in Welsh, when a very learned
discourse was preached by the Rev.
Mr. Davis (whose p'lper we h ive re
ferrod to) upon Matthew xill, 59. At
the conclusion of the sermon, tho ques
tion of the belter observance of the
Sabbath day and the nctlon of the
American Sabbath union was intro
dncod by the Rsv. DiVid Jones, of
Hyde Park, who said that the Rsv.
Peter Roberts, Olyphant, und himself
had been r quested to draft the follow
ing resolution, nnd to request the
representative of The Tkiuu.se to in
elude thessme in bis report:
That we, representatives of the Welsh
Congreg:itloul churches of oastorn Penn
sylvania, in convention assembled at tho
VVolsh Concregational church, Providence,
June fl nnd 0, heartily commend the or
ganized efforts of the clergy ami laity in
the city of i-cninton, to enforce the ob
servance of the Christian Sabbath, and of
the law of 1 71H. We wish them Increased
earnestness la the work and hope that the
campnlgn instituted by them will not ro
lax its efforts i until all unnecessary and
lufumons merchandise done on the Lord's
day is entimly done awav with. We a!BO
urge the members of our congregations,
representing over 2,000 adherents within
the city limits, to uphold and contribute
towards this beneflciBUt movement, which
is now demuuding financial aud spiritual
Tue Rov. David Jones, In introduc
ing tho resolution, made a telling
speech, in which he said it would be a
disgrace to Christianity in general and
to tbo various ohurehes in particular,
if the battle was not o .rried on enthu
siastically to a triumphaut end nnd the
very commeudable objects attained,
ana in this the promoters of the move
ment had every claim upon the finan
cial nud spiritual support of their mem
bers. It was a fact thut clgur dealers and
ilriiLjgints actually paid the $1 line each
Monday by informing on themselves
and that it showed the profits which
wero made on the Lord's Day when
thay appeared happy to pay the fine so
readily! At first tho term "Donyism''
had beou applied with ridicule by per
sons in high authority to some clergy
of tho city, but when prominent people
felt that they could not keep Rileuct
any longer bnt oatDt out boldly and
defended Mr. Deny and his associates,
there tvss an evident toning down in
the nonaioal ridicule und jibes. If
they would only stand together Sboul
der to Shoulder, the battle would tie
won and that must be the result as the
ever gathering force wbioh was deter
mined to have the Sabbath properly ob
served woul 1 noon be so powerful that
its voice must bo olsAved and its de
mandj acquiesced in.
THE TlllllUN!-: THANKED.
The Rev. 1) A. Brans, Puritan

the le' il efpSOt of th? question an 1 was

At the evening meeting the Rev. D.
P. Jones, of Hyde Parle, preached an
excellent Welsh sermon npon the
''Atonement of Christ," and prefaced
his rem irks upon, Ores, the b.-st inilu
encs to meet tho needs of tho people;

The convention proceedings through
