Bir. CONKLING believed the amend.
meet objectionable, because of the un
certainty and confunlon to result from it.

prosecution, crone examined Mr. Dicken,

Mr. (Myle asta ho bad been informed
that yesterday morning two papers bad
_rep trod, one for the proaccutrix
mid the other for her mother, which they
were naked to sign, without the contents
being made known to them. The papers
were written in behalf of Mr. Dickers
and Dr. Hall. and Mr. Coyle thought an
Wort had been made to tamper with the
prosecuting witness. He desired to in.
terrogate Mr. Dicker' about the matter.
Mr. Bruce did not object, but Mr. Dick.
en thought the Inquiry outside of the
case. The Mayer allowed the Inquiry.
Mr. Dicken understood an affidavit lied

seen it.
Mr. Bruce drew from the witness the
fact that the paper or papers purported

believed the papers were Impeded* hie

suggestions as to the contents; he further
believed that Mr. Hatch had some. hand
In their preparation.
The evidence closing with Mr. Diction,
the counsel for the defense, Mr. Bruce,
addressed the Mayor briefly. Be
claimed that the law recognized as mar
ried persons those who lived together as
man and wife, without the performance
of the marriage ceremony by those le
gally authorized, and In the present
on the strength of the agreement
entered into, the law would protect the
preeecutrix. Dr. Hall and Mr. Dioken,
In the part they had taken in the matter,
bad acted from pure motives, desiring
nothing more than to seek the welfare of
the parties. He therefore caked that the
case be dismissed.
Mr. Coyle had a few words to say be.
fore the case was - dismissed. If Mr.
Dlcken and Dr. Hall had acted from
pure motives, why had they taken such
Pains to excuse themselves '
or to deny
that they had endeavored to establish

partiesr. Ho thought, in the face of what

charge preferred. .

He believed- in the: Headshipit . Vhilst
over the datlons,.but , all ellbruilibsger did
not bellev_ti lt,,and
should be Introdticeilthat would produce
division among themselves.
• Dr. Easton was of the opinion that a
recognition of the Word of God. in•
eluded a recognition of all the doctrines
contained in it. If the Headship of
Christ le to he incorporated, why not the
deity, personality and gracious opera
tions of the Holy Ghost?. He believed
Gist Christ was King of nations, but not
in the same sense that he was Sing of
Bishop Kerfoot (leaving- the chair)
said this matter had occupied a place in
his mind frequently. But his attention
had been directed to it more particularly
of late. Lie believed that all chrlatian
bonnie should go forth in solid phalanx
amount the blatant Infidelity of the day.
Oee of the ht.( ways of doing this was
to incorp - rrate in the organic law of the
nation a distinct recognition of 'God and
the blessed Saviour. He believed that
this in a chrirelan nation, still he was in
favor of the proposed amendments.
Rev. George P. Hays did not believe
in leaving out a recognition of (theist.
If that Is left mit, then he loses all hie
tire and enthusiasm. If Congreesehcruld
strike It out he would submit 'end take
half aloof rather than get no bleed.
Rev. Mr. Hughes' only fear was that
they would not Boomed In the scoom
pitehment of the end proposed. If they
failed they would then be In a worse
poaltlou than before.
Dr. Sloane was free to confess that a
recognition of God and Ms Word. ould
embrace all that was asked. -
Dr. Miller had given the subject some
thought and be believed the object wan
a proper one. • •
A number of other gentlemen ad. ,
dressed the meeting and proposed sev
eral amendments to the resolution of Dr.
Freshly, but it was carried with some
vsty alight modification, which did not
aiDct Ito definiteness or oleaning.

Association, were instructed to appiint a
committee to make arrangements for the
convention which Is to meet, probably In
