Session at Cedarville, Oblo—ftening
The General Synod of the . Reformed
Presbyterian Church oomtnenced its
Forty-Sixth Annual Session in Cedar
ville, Greene Co., Ohio, yesterday at
three o'clock. The opening sermon was
preached by the retiring Moder a tor,
Rev. Professor David Steele, D. D., of
Philadelphia. Dr. Steele chose for his
Isaiah 14 .c. 82 v. The Lord hath
He introduced the subject briefly, as
follows: ; •
The heavens declare the glory of God.
The earth'in its fulness, freshness and
variety attests tie goodness of its Creator. .
But within the bounds of Jehovah's uni.
verse is an - objeet of still grander charac
ter than the material heavens or variega
ted earth. This obleet isbrought tinder
our notice in the text. .The prophetic ,
eye of the son of Amos is lighted up and
he beholds the captivity. of the chosen
people brought back.
The text fertile the downing thought—
the grand climax—of the source of lel
rael's comfort. Under every dispensal
titan the Chutch of Odd is one; hence it is ,
that the language w before us comes freigh
ted and full of coOlort to all:who have
taken hold of that covenant, which is the
gidrious charter of the church'aliberties.
He then noticed the following topics:: ,
I The founding of Zion. ...-..
11. The privileges which result to her film
connection with her Divinefounder..
First. Zion has been founded in the di.
vine 'remorse. From all eternity itLwas ,
the determination of a three-one-Gocl to
save sinners froth the depths of degrada
tion into which they had been precipi
tated by the fall. This. determination
was free, consummately. wise, and abso
lutely unconditional. The heroes of
by-gone ages .founded colossal empires.
Assyria, Greece and Rome owed their
origin in the providence of God to indi
viduals of distinction. But' the Lord
bath founded Zion. The plans and pur.
poses of conquerors and kings have
proved abOrtive. Time, war, flood and
lire have wasted the proudest 'monu
ments of men, and rased to their foun
dations the noblest structures of art.
But the Lord bath purposed, and wile
can disannul it? The counsel of the
Lord, that shall stand.
Second. The Lord hath founded Zion on
the mediatoriat person of the Son of God.
This the divine purpose contemplated.
"Behold," says God, "I lay in Zion for a
foundation a stone, a tried stone, a pre
cious corner stone, a sure foundation."
And that the world might know that
this is the only foundation upon , which
Ithmortat beings can be-securely built,
tho Apostle lays down the unanswerable
proposition, "Other foundation can no
man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus
Christ." Upon this Rock of Ages the
church rests, and not on Peter or on any
of his pretended successors: For
strength and stability this fonfidation
exceeds il others. Cities, temples,
palaces and towers cannot withstand the
constant flameds of coming and depart
ing generations; but the eternal rock on
which the church Is built br,attli the
same. Ind when the everlasting bills
shall bo their heads, and the conflagra
tions of t e last day shall shoot their
lurid glar athwart a dissolving netiverse,
the churc , together with her immortal
foundatio , shall remain unmoved.

ftf eine of the Perpetrators.
Yesterday afternoon a robbery, which
for daring and ' skilful maneuvering, is
one of the most successful we have ever
recorded, occurred at the store of Messrs.
R. Robinson & Co., No. 255 Liberty street,
The robbers were three in number,
evidently graduates in the business,
and possessed of all the requisites of cun
ning, boldness and sharp planning ne
cessary to success in their nefarious
work. The store is .a large wholesale
grocery, fronting on Liberty street, and
extending backward to a public alley. It
can be entered ) either way. At the end
fronting oath alley, the office contain
ing the safe, &c., is located. While sit
, ting in this office yesterday morning, the
senior partner of the firm was approached
by a young man, who asked him to
change a ten dollar bill. In accom
modating him the gentleman displayed
a large sum of money which be took from
an inner drawer of the safe, and returned
to its place with the bill which he had
changed. About half past two, in the af
ternoon, the chap went back to the store
and made inquiries in regard
to a certain man, who, he said,
was employed in one of the establish
ments in the vicinity. While he was
talking another party came in and
attracted the attentiOn of the salesman
by prieing the gads, /lc. The office was
thus left vacant, the door leading into
t 0 alley being open at the same time.
The conversation lasted for about three
minutes, when Mr. Robinson returned
to the office and discovered that during
hls absence the safe bad been robbed of
the Money in the drawer, amonnting to
ahout twenty-five hundred dollars, to
gether with a similar amount in chocks
and a bundle of promissory notes. the
value of which is not definitely
known. A few minutes before he had
left the office be noticed a man
prOwllng around, but supposed he had
copao in the back way and gone to the
•frtnt of the store. When the robbery was
revealed he immediately suspected habit&
been made the victim of a well concerted
pleb of villainy, and at once repaired to
the Pittsburgh Mayor's office and notifi
ed the police of the affair. A gentle
man who happened to be in the store a few
minutes after the two men had departed,
when furnished with a description of
them, said he had noticed the chaps, and
started in pursuit. He traced them as
far ha the Allegheny Diamond, but lost
theoo there. The Allegheny pollee were
theg placed in posseshion of the facts,,
aid' about an hour afterwards Officer,;
Green, while passing up Beaver street!
apprehended one of the men, whom
he knew from the description. The ,
fellow was brought to the kiekup when
Mr. Robinson and the salesman identi-,
fled him as one of the men who had!
been in the store. He was searched but!
only sixty dollars was found in hie pow-I,
session. He refused to answer any qum- 1
Cons and maintained a dogged, sullen,
demeanor throughout the examination.!
The pollee, however, succeeded in get!,
ting a clue to his par tners in crime, whom
they axe now in search of. ! Jr
SOMO of the papers were found:
In the alley subaequently, and the
thieves really secured but the two
thousand Ave hundred cash, as pay,
merit on the notes and checks have been
stopped. With this haul, however, if,
not detected. they can congratulate them,
selves on a prosperous day's work. Ihe
fellow who, is now in the lock- up will
have a bearing, to-day, when perhaps
something additional may be learned in
reference to his companions. The trick
was well planned, bold in the extreme,
well carried, out, and thus far has boob
crowned with a success worthy of a more
