Reformed :Presbytery of Pittsburgh --Cale
Presented:—Presbytery. Suspends her
Relation to General Synod.
The Pittsburgh Presbytery of the Re
Presbyterian Church held a speciid
meeting in Rev.' John McMillanis
Church, Allegheny, last•'evening. Rev.
Robert McMillan, the Moderator, consti
tuted the Presbytery by prayer. Two calls
--ono from Neshannock Lawrence countY ,
and another from Fairview, Beaver county
—were presented to Mr. .1. G. Boyce, a
licentiate under the care of the Presbytery,
and by him respectfully declined.
Rev. John McMillan then offered a pnper,
which declared the relations between the
Presbytery and the General Synod are sus ,
pended until the leto action of Synod in
the case of Gee. H. Stuart, Ea' q., be re
versed. The paper is an follows:
Wunltgais, The General Synod of the Ile
formed Presbyterian Church, at 'its last
mooting hold at Pittsburgh, did,ln the moat
disorderly, illegal, cruel, partial and out
rageous manner resolve to _ , suspend Mr.
George - H. Stuart from office and number
ship in the Church, contrary to all the
forme, order and precedents that have ob
tained in the administration of discipline
in our ecrilesiastical organization; and
Wunneas, By a subsequent resolution, it
WWI ordered by Synod that all Sessions
and Presbyteries be directed to carry out
the law of the Church in accordance with
the deliverances of Synod in this anspen-
Dion oi Mr. Stuart; and
WitellEAS, This Preshytery regards the'
action of Synod in said ease as contrary, to
the received standards of our Church a look
of Discipllue, the terms of communion, the
formula of Ordination, and numerous acts
upon the records of tho General Synod,nnd
regarding the whole proceedings as , arbi
trary and injurious to the cause of Our Lerd
Jesus Christ and aubversion of the Perinx.,
vent obedience which we owe Him as the
great king and only head an&law-giver'of
the church; therefbre,
Radioed, That the Presbytery maintain
, ing our long established and • well under
stood position, and endeayoring to carry
put our principles, doctrine, order, dimi
pline and government as heretetbre, do,
hereby suspend our relatioas to said Synod
until the aforesaid action be resoinded, or
until we obtain further'' light—
and in the meantime we remain
in the Reformed Presbyterian Church,
maintaining andendeavoring to inter
pret and develop() her great ' (and
glorious principles in their proper applica
tion" to the age , and country in which we
live, of which we are cordial and loyal citi
zens—trusting that ere long those who have
trampled on our constitution and our laws,
and have perverted our Order and disci
pline, will revoke their unjust and illegal
acts, and concur with' us in the views we
'have thus announced in our solemn pro
test against the • unworthy action of the late
General Synod. ,
Rev. Gee. Scott, D.D., most cordially sec- i
ended the paper . The action was pallid., 1
unjust ille galand outrageous. ,
• ' Dr. Doug as thought the paper was not 1
"'courteous enough towards Synod. Presby
levy had a right to express its d'nweat or
disapprobation of the action of mod in
the case. But to characterise it as antral
aeons, de., to tbe - "mother" of whom so i
much had been said on other occasions.
Rev. John Algeed said if the paper should
be passed it mould leave us at loose ends:
We would have no fellowship with anybody
of cbristians.

the law so long as it remained in force. • ,
Mr. J. M. 'retitle was ottehished•to hear
what some members had said on the floor
of the Presbytery.: , Ten years ago he was
not a member :of :the Reformed Presbyte
rian Church. When 'he entered her he
was taught that the Scripture Psalms.nly
were to besting. He had heard ministers
debarring those from the communion table
who sang anything but the Scripturepatilms.
Mr. Thomas Smith said he could agree
with some things in the paper;but if he
had a vote 'he could not give it for its pas-
sage. He could not see why there was so
much ado about this came try thePresbytery_
when it had refused within:the last six
months to remove the suspension , pro
flounced upon Rev. D. Kennedy, for a lest
aggravated offence. He did not think that
suspension should have been prenounced
in either case. ' •
Rev. J. F. Hill said it was a remarkable
coincidence that the Synod had persistently
refused to visit' censure on those who bad
violated the law, and that at the late meet
ing two-thirds were found willing to visit•
judicial censure on the alleged violators or_
the law. . • ; _
Rev. John McMillan said the. Modenstor
ofthe Synod announced in private conver
sation that they had come prepared to put
all men in their pror places. He desired
to have the standards of the church remain
as they are. He wished!. each brother to
interpret them for himself. He did not
wish to throw men out •of the church be
cause they bad on some '
.occasions; sung
hymns. He thought the Church should be
