evinced during the year Was worthy of
the church and maintained her previous'
standing in this respect. •Iti one point;
that in , relation to the payment or Bet:-

receiving the paper, but refusing the
privilege. .- '
_ Rev. Dr. Page objected to the reception
of the coinuninication. The question
referred to was the most important which
had beendecided by'the Convention and
he thought the members should have
beett present at the proper time.
Rev. Mackay also objected. 'He re
viewed the legal aspect of the case, and
thought it would be establishing a bad
precedent. He said, for instance,
if it were on the election of a
Bisho, which he thanked God it was
not, (laughter,) the receiving of those
votes might possibly change the result.
Mr.. Techudy said all had certainly
read the newspapers, and must have no
ticed time and again that in Congression
proceedings members were allowed
the privilege of rebording their votes on
measures which had been acted upon
during their absence, when such vote
did not alter the decision.
Mr. Hay asked as a matter of courtesy
that the members be allowed to record
their' votes and show-where they stood.
A vote was then taken, when the orig
inal motion of Mr.- Hay was carried, so.
the privilege asked was granted.
