Th« Episcopal Convention tjpld'ia Philadel
phia ha* just closed its labors.* The question
of thanksgiving for tba reetomtiOf' of national <
authority created considerable, debate in that
bbdy. The New York Independent says that
the ilonee of Bishops had at olfe time deter*
mined unanimously to give ssoh thanks. —
Jnst at that moment Bishop AtHnson of North
Carolina, and Lay of Arkansai, entered and
took their Beats. Immediately a!l was changed.
them must have entered the phantom of
Bishop Elliot, whose famous “ 'Silence, if yon
please, but not a word of censure," was hence
forth tile order of the day. Bishop Whitting
ham whose proved loyalty is beyond dispute,
attested as it is by the paper left by Governor
Hicks, in which it is stated that tjjie Bishop did
more than any one else to help \/.tn in keeping
Maryland in the Union, and who le honored by
the hostility of his clergy, almost- unanimous
in their sympathy with rebellion-—teok up the
part of pacificator. He was aided by Bishop
Potter, and the work was accomplished. It was
conceived to be an injustice to force" men to
rejoice over what they had contended against
for four years, end would place them under the
suspicion of being hypocrites if they attended,
while their absence would show that the church
was not reunited. So the oompi omise—if that
can be called compromise whore everything
was yielded to an insignificant minority of two
was made, and the church committed to a half
hearted policy. It were a nice Question to in
quire what must be the feeling" of men wjio
doting the last four years God to
grant the very thing they pre now ashamed to
thank him for. No consideration for the feel
ings of Southern brethren prevented them
from imploring the Divine aid their hour of
agony; but, when that was afforded, they dare
not offer op praise for it. It is, the old story ;
“Were there not ten cleansed,iot where are
the nine?" 1
The steadfastly loyal Bishops, however, were
net willing that all the members of that House
-should appear to have concurred, in its refusal
to return thanks for the restoration of the na
tional authority and the destruction of slavery.
Seven of them joined in the presentation of a
paper which lias been published iu the Epis
copal Recorder, and which explains their po
sition—as follows: ,
The übdersigned have desired one of their
number to read in bis placq House of
Bishops, the following paper, is not a re
monstrance against action, winch is already
past. It is not a protest, for which they are
aware that the wholesome roles of the House
allow no place upon Its journals/ fit is simply
a statement, which after it has been read, can
be by themselves preserved, made -public and
transmitted to the knowledge of those who shall
come after. '.
In the decisions of the House of Bishops
with-reference to the Jay of Thanksgiving for
the restoration oT peace, and to other important
subjects, the ground, has been taVen, that, for
the take of more complete conciliation, no sen
timent should be expressed by'rthia'Honee, or
this Convention, or this Church in any collect
ive capacity, on subjects of'sncb importance
and to dear to all of at at. the reestablishment
of the National Union and ths'emancipation of
the slaves.
The Honse of Bishops unquestionably loved
their eoontry and its unity, and ihey could not
approve the system of human bondage -, but
they will teem to have adopted as the position
to be henceforth occupied by (his Church one
which it consistent with indlterenoe to the
safety and unity of the tnd to the free
dom of the oppressed. ’. ' i
This is a position which, as the undersigned
believed, should not he maintained by any
branch of-the Christian Church in the United
States, whether in the present or any future
generatioh. To signify that it -was not accept
ed by all on this occasion, and that those who
did not accept it believed it" to have been ac
cepted at all, only because an extreme desire for
conciliation and unanimity prevailed for the
honr, the undersigned have prepared this docu
ment, wit’, perfect and cordial /aspect for their
brethren, but under the coo iciousness of a
great duty to the inseparable interests of their
beloved Church and country. ~

Wiu Sextxnced to b* Echo. —About 4
o’clock on Tuesday, Novi'lst,'Gen. Auoca,
accompanied by Maj. RussEl, Provost Marshal,
sod Oapt Gao. R. WaTBWMEi proceeded to
Capt "Witt's room, and havioginformed him
of his unpleasant errand, she death sen
-t«nea,and the time fixed'for Tiw ezecation, on
Friday. The prisoner listened with composure,
whtnQsn. Augur asked him whether be had
anything to say, to which question the prisoner
replied, “ I hare nothing except that I
desire to state to yon that! am innocent of the
charges brought against me." Having been
asked about his wife, he remarked that she was
in Kentucky, and hardly could come here in
time, beside he did not wish' she would be
plunged in grief at seeing hit ; in his extremity.
The prisoner made a reqqesXthat Rev. Father
Botus and Loeis ’ Soeace, ]ieq., his counsel,
should be sent for. Before the officers retired,
Oapt. Win is represented as saying: " I have
been persecuted, and if then is each a thing as

persecute those who have perjured themselves

the reply of the President to the North Car

AEEiOAi! Lincoln—Halos 4,1806.
TcssßAy, November 7, 1865, will hereafter
grace the calendar of Memorable Days. ,
The open and virulent traitor, the timid and
timeserving, the sympathizer - with’treason, and
the men who weakly shrank back, waiting for
the cat to jump,—all these congenial spirits
will remember it as a great day of wrath, in
whose flaming vortex a Treasonable Party was
swallowed up, as a power, forever.
And by the tens of thousands who have sus
tained the remarkable hardships of the bivouac,
the exhausting march, the winter damp, and
deadly field, that the Republic might survive
the greatest civil convulsion in all time, —and
by those who gave bone of their bone'and flesh
of their flesh, or opened their hearts and lips
and proffered their fortunes to stay up the
bands of rightful power,—by these the Day of
Victories will be regarded as tbe day of the re
demption of the Republic, a day in which just
judgment was rendered upon a faction which
counted its aggrandisement above the triumph
of righteous principles and tbe perpetuity of
civil liberty.
How grandly they came trooping - into tbe
Republican fold I—New York, NEW JERSEY
—delivered from the putrefying body of fac
tional death at last; —Massachusetts;
sin, Minnesota, Illinois ; a great concourse of
States; come to join Pennsylvania, Ohio, lowa,
Indiana, and New England in tbe battle for
universal freedom. Welcome, all!—and tbiice
welcome New Jersey 1
This day of victories teaches the teachable,
that tbe people who have not been in'rebellion
have determined to punish those whose hearts
and lips have encouraged by ostra.
oiam through the potency of suffrage Controlled
by healthy Public opinion. As for "the apolo
gists for treason, the rigbtminded majority will
have none of them.
It teaches the teachable that not even honor
able service, and soars received in defence of
our common country, can recommend their en
durers and wearers to popular favor, if lent to
the common enemy for the benefit of a faction.
The soldier who forgets himself so fat as to
lead the faction which seeks the life of the na
tion, which heaped reproaches upon the army
and navy for four years—such soldiers may be
taught now, that the people will ignore them,
, even as the recreant soldier ignores bis record.
It teaches the timeserving, ambitious leaders
of all parties, that there it a higher and might
ier Controller of national destiny than cabals,
conventions, “ rings," or any mere partisan
management; and it ought to tepoh timid,
timeserving followers, of all parties, that the
full hah can afford to do Just right, always re
gardless of what may coma to him personally.
It teaches demagogue the power to de
ceive the people, a power hitherto wiplded with
too great ’.success by the Woods, Seymours,
Vallandigharo, Bigler, Brookses, Reeds, Inger
solls, Woodward, Buchanan, and hosts of less
er lights, has passed away, let us bops forever.
And this we know, because—
Before this great war came and lifted tens
of thousands from the dull level of dependent
thought and action up to the plane ,$f indepen
dent thinking and acting, the chances are as
ten to one that the canning snares prepared by
the demagogues of New York and Pennsylva
nia, would have caught thousands who spurned
them on the 10 th of October and the 7th of
Tes, the solemn revelations and painful les
sons of war have educated the American peo
ple for high moral political action more then
fifty years of prosperity. -
' Therefore let ns copy the heroic Paul, and,
thanking God, take courage.
We are thns taught to value the lessons of
adversity ; for this Red Sea bad to be crossed
before the nation could be saved from a fate
bitterer than death.
And by this total rout of the abettors of the
rebellion 'against law and order we' ought to he
taught tbpt the great war was ordained for a
double purpose—the punishment of a nation
grown insolent in wrongdoing, and for the'en
franchisement of the people.
Henceforth the people ought to have increas
ed faith in the being and jmrpose of a Provi
dence. Even the most obstinate, of atheists
must agree that the results of the conflict aff
ord most remarkable evidence of design. He
is hopelessly blind, or atheistic boyond hope,
who does not accept the evidence. ■
Bat above all, let the Republican party be
taught by this overthrow of the remnant of a
once great and powerful party. . While the
Democracy championed freedom ancf progress,
as it chiefly did up to 1848, it was invincible to
the mightiest attacks of its antagonist. But
when it began to truckle to the eltve power it
began to decay ; and after a decace of varying
fortune, marked throughout by most abject
submission to the slsveocracy, it perished from
the earth, condemned by God end despised by
good men. Its ghost has walked the earth for
the last four, yeare, troubling the people, but
the victory of the 7th drove the malign shade
back to its place.
Then let the victors be warned; for as cer
tain as God rules the universe, if any party
strikes hands with wrong, or leafy itself to In
justice, just so certain will it beswtpt away, dis
honored, despised, and vnlamentcd,

These are eome of the triumphs of the Repub

a Republican legislature, which secures the
passage of the Constitutional amendment abol

A Copperhead exchange says; “We are to
have thousands of National Banks, more dan
gerous to the liberties of the people than an
armed foe." To which we reply—we' have
had- thousands of State banks, and most of
them chartered by democratic legislature*.-
Have they destroyed the liberties of the people?
If not, then will banks established on a far
safer principle be worse ? At present, Copper
heads scramble for national currency as greedi
ly as anybody. Why do that if they have no
faith in National Banks ?
The steamship Atlanta, from Havre, lately
arrived in New York harbor with 90 cases of
cholera among her steerage passengers. She
was detained at Quarantine. Twenty caaes

But it is not likely that the disease will be
come epidemic at present. And when it does
become so, it is not likely to .prove anything
like so destructive as formerly.
Montgomery Blair made a laughable blan

We bad hoped that the New York Democra

happens that the party shuffled off its mortal
coil on the 7th of November, about the time
the cholera made its appearance at the Quar

tary regulations for the .check of the epidemic.
The Wayne Co. Herald thinks the news from
New York and New Jersey will not dishearten

larity of this new enterprise of Messrs. Baldwin
& Co., of 64 Cedar street. New York, is the
already large and rapidly increasing subscrip
tion list, they having secured the unprecedented
circulation of neatly ten thousand copies in
the short, space of sis weeks. A work, of ibis
ebaraoter is much needed, representing, as it
is intended, the vast business interests of the
largest commercial marts in the United States,
consolidated in one volume. Its utility to busi
ness men cannot be over-estimated. To mer
chants generally throughout the United States
and Canadas, doing business with New York,
Boston or Philadelphia, as a handbook of refer
; eoue it will be of incalculable value. We are
heartily glad to seethe publishers meeting with
the success their enterprise properly deserves.
As an advertising medium it commends itself
to merchants and maufacturera ; its circulation,
confined as it will be to bosioess bouses, must
be productive of good to its patrons. We see
thattbe business menof Philadelphia and Bos
ton have taken hold of the matter with the
proper spirit, and are determined that the Em
pire City shall* not he ahead of them in their
display of the commercial resources of their
respective, cities. The subscription price of
the Consolidated Business Directory is five
dollars per copy, quarto. size, handsomaly
printed end bound in cloth, gold embossed.—
Altogether it will be a fine spicimen of typo

We most cheerfully call the attention of onr
merchants to the above work, every one of
whom 'should have a copy of it. As an in
