WaronoTat, Jan. 15,1850.
We are getting along gloriously, having arrived
at the middleofthe'.seventh week ofthe session,
the House has legally and duly diosen its Speak
er, Clerk, and Sergeant'll Arms. There remain
to be elected, in order to perfect the organisation,
a door keeper and post master. Mr. CHassbemer,
whowastoday electedon the 10th beUotSer
geant at Arms pj the Booae, by 107 votes against
103 for Mr. GHddingt, Whig, is a Pennsylvania
Democrat, who baa been {or r. number of yean em
ployed in the Clerk’s office.’ I think I have heard
that he was*Sergeant at Arms in one or the other
Honse ofyoar State Legislature, during the fa
mous campaign, called the buck shot war.
To morrow, 1 presume, the two other subor
dinate officials will be elected, and then poasibly
the House may gel to business, but there is no
security for any thing of the kind.
In the Senate, the Democrats owned op to the
maixß, and quietly permitted the resolution over
throwing their famoos law for restricting the coat
ofcoUecting the revenue to $1,560,000, by* allow,
ing the necessaryexpenditore of seven or eigbthand
red thousand pass. Mr. Bradbury,of Maine,
then made a speech two or three hours long upon
his resolution, calling upon the Executive to fur
nish the Senate with reasons and arguments for
.the removals that hare been made. It is r a good
enough theme to talk uponded when the Senate has
nothiag better to do, it might be well eaoagh to
act, but Governor Bradbury is one of those gen*
tlcmen who bear a higV-repuiation.. &r courtesy
and amiability, but who would not aet the Poto
mao on fire, if they thundered within the gates of
the capltol to the crack of doom.
The organ for such a pur
‘pose—contains Bayly’s defence of hia neglect to
call the Committee of Waya and Means; together
for the transaction of business. The gist of the
defence is, that nothing has been referred to the
committee, ao that it baa no foundation for its cc
lion. There are two points, however, upon which
Bayly, speaking by his next friend Thomas Ritch
ie, does not enlighten hit anociateej of the com
mittee, ortho Honse, or the pobb’e. They are, first
—whose iauit is it that nothing has beesi referred
to the committee? and secondly, is not the com
mittee empowered to act in tha preparation ofthe
appropriation bills, wtthoot. specific instructions
from the Honse.
The rules of the House make it the duty of the
committee to proceed at once to prepare the ap
propriation bills, and ihey.acl upon the data con
tained in the annual estimates of appropriations
laid, before the Honse on the first day ofits assem
bling, ;aod those bills must be reported within thir
ty days after the appointment of the committee.
If Bayly had moved to refer these estimates, it
would have been done. For any other member
to have done it, wonld have been an act of
discourtesy.* Among the objects to be effected
by-this extraordinary dels;, no doubt, is the pro
traction of the heavy financial butiness of the ses
sion, to ao late a period as to render any modifica
tion ofthe Tariff impracticable,, and generally to
embarrass the administration in respect to the
war, and all its other proposed measures.
I am glad to be able to pronounce the story of
the recallofMr.Sqnier,Charge to Central Amer
ica, unfounded and gratuitous, as Mr. Benton says,
in his replies to Calhonn, The difficulty between
our Government and Great Britain is in a train of
adjustment, aai infer from the best, information I
can obtain in premises. All claim to Tigre Is
land will be abandoned by Great Britain, and it
will be surrendered up to the United States. But
this will done by way. of reparation for the
insolent and unwarranted conduct of the British
agent ChatfieW, in seising the Island. As it is
not considered of any particular importance by
onr Government, it will be. returned to the pos
session and jurisdiction of Nicaragua, or what
ever other State iljostly belongs to. Not only is
there no intention of recalling Mr. Squier, but
his vigorous, prompt and efficient measures
in protecting the rights of his government and its
citizens, has been highly commended, although it
has not been judged expedfeat to retain the little
Island acquired by him. It is conceded, how
ever, that by negotiating for the cetiion of it, at the
time be did, be completely defeated the designs of
Chat&pld, who was preparing to aeixe it; and had
he done ao before the session to the United States,
he would have held it, past all peradventure. It
is said to be Important as a station for vessels, ly
ing, as it does, at the proposed ittouthnau ofthe
great canal . Junius.

Tils Chareh Union Controversy.
I have before me tbeGaxette of 15th inti., in
which I notice an article on Church Union, siyned
‘‘lnvestigator* I would say to “Investigator,” be
sure of your frets.
He informs us that a plan of Union was devised
in 1801, between-Preabyteriana and Congregation
alista in the new settlements to ‘‘promote harmony
and prevent alienation,” all this is right: here I
have no controversy with “Investigator;” but took
a little further, where he informs os thst “It was
not a Union ratified between the General Presby
terian Church, as a church, sod the Congregation
-lif, bqt only a union between the individuals of
each sect in the new settlements, for the purpose
of rendering more efficient support to the ministry,
and promoting kind feelings between those who
were considered the same in doctrine, though not
in discipline.* I wish the reader to remember
two things in the above extract: Ist, Thst £he
onion was not formed with the ohnrch, as a church,
but with individuals, dec. Now, I assert that the
Union was formed by the higher, authority known
in the church: on the Presbyterian side by the
General Assembly,' and on the other side by ao
association composed of ministers and laymen,
duly chosen and met together for the-traasaction
of their own business. The Union was first pro
posed by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian
Church; it was endorsed and reindorsed from time
to time for 34 years, and was the settled policy
ofthe church, without aqueatinn ar to its correct
ness, until 1835. In thst year, the General As
sembly asked a repeal of the union, promising thst
the repeal should not injuriously operate upon
churches already formed under it. (I quote from
What followed? In lS36,„the newachool had
the majority in the Assembly; in 1837,the old
echoed happened to have the all aul re-*
member this extraordinary year of bank fsilores
and money embarraesmenis; many of the diftr.r.t
Presbyterians were not at the meeting of the A-*
lembly. Dr. Breckenridge informed the A wcitibiy
that they then had the power, and if they did not
: use It they might possibly never have it sgoic.
(I again quolo from memory, not having the doca
meats at hand.) The Assembly did nsethe powei,
and nearly one half of the church were cat off at
one blow; more than this, the Geoeral Assembly
caused the famous excesion acts to have a retro*
spectiva operation; they not only declared that all
the Churches, Presbyteries, Synods, fee., that had
come in ouder this plan ol anion, to be oat of the
chareh, bat all their acts void tram the tw ginning.
Suppose Gen. Jackson, who was so decided an'
enemy ofthe U. S. Bsok, should have<pereuaded
Congress to pass such a law respecting that once
powerful institution, it would have been a parallel
Now, do thete] facts bear out “investigator,” in
his statement, that the agreement was with indi
viduals—have these individuals done all this, or
the Church, <u a CAurch, the smallest child will
answer, I need not. Investigator would fain have
us ihiqk thst it was aa individual agreement. I
think it was with the Chunk, sod have proved
it. 2d. I wish the reader to look at the words
following, vis that the other party to this nnion
(the Congregationalisi,) “were considered the
same in doctrine.” Thst is right, they were the
same in doctrine, and are yet Now I wish to
ask how Mr. ‘-Investigator” knows that they
were heretical: does proof, or have.the
Assembly proof—none, not a shadow of it—did
thay attempt to try any member of the four here*
ticaf Bynod*—no, not [one. They did arraign two
clergymen, one in Phi ladeiphla, and tbs other in
Cincinnati, but so barefaced was the prosecution
against there Godly men, thst aome of their own
leaders could not coQdemnthex. Dr. Miller, who,
during bis life, ttood at the head of the list, was
one-wbomthe writer remembers conld not vote
that tbfcvßev. A. Barnes was a heretic. I con
tend that the same that was done io 1837, may be
done again, when nay man, or Church, becomes
obnoxious to a party, that party can, on the came
principle, bring to bear upon hit, or their necks,
this famous ExcisiooActs—bang first, and try him
afterwards. What would the old Pnntsns, who
landed on Plymouth rock, say to such proceed*
logs—they came here for liberty; has not religious
liberty been sadly encroached upon by this aet. I
think ii has,. In 1839, the Old School Geoeral
Assembly passed Acts, such as the following:
Thst when O. S. minorities existed, cither in the
Church, cr Presbytery, or Synod, such minorities
were to be the Prcsbyterys Synod,*&a Thereby
overriding the majority. See this carried ont in the
ease of the Erie at the Session of the
Pittsburgh Synod, in the autumn ol 1639.

The Fredericksburg Recorder, in
some statistics on the population of that State,
says: '

The slaves ....50 “ 1000
The white population of Western
Virginia, io (he same time, had
increased 167 u 1000
And the slaves increased 0n1y... 5 *• 1000
Tbe above statement, of (he correctnei of which
every reader may satisfy himself by turning lo
the eensQs'of 1830 aad 1840, giVe an encouraging
view of (he progress sod prospects of the “Old
Dominion." No doubt tbe ceoeds of 1890 will pre
sect that noble Stale m a still more gratifying
It is hoped that tbe decrease of the xokiu pop
ulation in Eastern Virginia will have almost or
qnite ceased, and tbe dtertatc-oi the alavea will be
foand lo have gone on at an accelerated pace.
While In Western increase of the
white population will be found to have gone on,
not only, at an equal, bote more rapid rale; and
the slave population willpftbably be found to have
increased even leu rapidly than during the pre
ceding ten yean.
Under such circumstances, it is neither wild nor
visionary to predict that Western Virginia will,
-within a period not very tong, become a asperate
and a free state.
Even's! this day, li can say, from an intimate
knowledge of a considerable portion of Western
Virginia, that I know no section of country where
an industrious and enterprising poor man can
find e happier, healthier, or more promising home-

gainst the filthy practice of spitting in
He said men-bad aright and smoke, and
tchew, as much as they pleased at home, but they
bad no right to introduce such profanity into the
church, destroying (he carpets, and showing dis*
respect to tbe house of God. What would they
think of him if he chewed in the pulpit and spat
from it. They had just as little right to do ao.—
In the name of God, let them have one place on
earth they could call clean; and let them abstain
from chewing on the Sabbath! A suppressed
laugh ran through the whole church, at what
chewera considered ad very unreasonable. We
fear the reverend gentleman will not be much
more successful than was King James the First of
England, in his "eounierblatt against tobacco.”—

Weslbtah Aftaibj.—The expulsion of
Messrs. Everett & (So. still occupiesconsid
erable attention among oar Wesleyan friends
—though the excitement seems to have
somewhat subsided. A letter from Dr.
Campbell in tbe Wesleyan Times states that
his “excellent friend, Mr. Dunn, stands en
gaged” to preach every Sunday morning
during this year at the Tabernacle. Dr. C.
is the pastor of that church, where Mr.
Whitefield formerly preached. Thejdissenters
have given a great deal of -aidand comfort
to the egpeiled minister*. There are some,
‘however, that think it prodent to let the
Wesleyan*alone in their trouble*. “A mem
ber of the Evangelical Alliance,” writing in
the Watchman, states that a highly respect,
ed Independent minister waa lately waited
upon by a deputation, with the earnest request
that he would sanction the use of his Chap'
el . being given for a meetiig of aympathix
-1 ea with the three minister! expalled by the
late Conference. The reverend gentleman
replied: “ I must settle several questions
to the Kitieiaction of my own mind and con*
science, before I accede to your request:—*
Ist, I it ant thoroughly understand the whole
Meihodi-t constitution before I can decide
that 30 or Qonference has, In this instance,
'violated that constitution. 2nd, I most be
coma possessed of full and accnrate infor*
•matipn-as to all the circumstances affecting
in any way the Christian and ministerial
1 character of these three Ministers, ere I can
form a correct judgment as to whether they
have been unrighteously dealt with. 3ra,
On the Malposition, even shonld I allow this,
that they hare suffered undeservedly, then
I must satisfy my own mind that the course
they are pursuing, in travelling about to
proclaim their own righteeusness before
large and mixed assemblages, is the best
and mo? t Christian. I think, had the case
been m y own, I should Bave waited patient
ly., and committed my way unto the Lord,
till he brought forth my righteousness as the
light, and that this would have been more
dignified, and tended more directly to secure
a good result. 4th, I must farther, after due
examination, ascertain that it is my duty, as
an Independent Minister, to throw my in
fluence into tho disputes of a sister Church.
Now, to consider all these questions would
occupy more time than I can venture to di
vert from my evident arid momentous du
ties. 1 believe Christ does not call me to it,
and I must, therefore, 'decline mixing my
self up with this p;ihapp)- : agitatioQ.”
L Pa. Bv.vting ifru Mr. Hoole.— ln derend
:ing the.character.oLsorrie of the leading men
jof the Wesleyamcorinection,- at a missiona
jry meeting in’ Leeds, the Key. W. Arthur
’bore tne following te.-tirabnytd the disinter
estedness of Dr. Bunting ami Mr. HooIp:
11 Fifty- years ago Dr. Bunting was in the
town ol Manchester, with a widowed-moth
er. He was then the pupil of Dr. Percival,
the raos: eminent physician of thattown.—
•It was proposed that he should be a Metho
dist minister, but Dr. Percival took sueb an
interest in hU fumre prospects, that he told
him that he should have his diploma in Lon
don without any expense, audriie further un
dertook to introduce him to a practice in Man
chester of £7OO a year, with a prospect of
extension. But his mother and himself had
that love to Methodism to sacrifice this flat
tering offer. Dr. Bunting had served Meth
odism for fifty years, and, year by year, he
has been sacrificing for himself and his fam
ily, say five hundred pounds in the shape of
income. And, during all this time, he has
seen first one, and then another, go off from
Methodism, some to the Church and some
to the Dissenters. He has seen one individ
ual begin with Methodism, at the same time
as'himself, and now sitting calmly and com
fortably, thepastorof an Independent church
with a salary of £Bo# a year.
There is another of these interested men,
whose name I ought hot to omit—l allude to
Mr. Hoole. I know that about ten years ago,
the East India Company—the most munifi
cent masters in tho world—offered to Mr.
Hoole the professorship of Tamul. The du
ties w.ere exceedingly light, and he had an
opportunity of making a salary of "£BOO to
£l,OOO avear, but certainly £800; and he,
Sir, iti order to fill on office labor
aud responsibility, made his bow to the East
India Company, and continued in the posi
tion of our Financial Secretary. When tnese
aretholacts, if some unknown men, in a
newspaper, will get up au attack upon min
isters liK.e those 1 have mentioned, charging
them with boing interested and unscrupulous,
are the great Methodist people of England
to loierato it?”
Death or Mr. Miller. —The papers re
cord that Mr. Miller, of Low Hampton, New
York, somewhat celebrated for nia views
respecting the nearness of the advent, died
at his residence, the 20th nit., in his 68th
year. He at Pittsfield, in New
York, February 15, 1782. It is said that he
was recorded with much affection by his
no*4nbors,'wba esteemed him as benevolent
man, and a kind neighbor. For many years
ho was a most assiduous Htudent ol history
arid the .Scriptures, in the study of which be
bdeame impressed with a con'yic.ion that the
fifth monarchy predicted by Daniel to be
given to the people of the Bairns «f the
Most High, under tbp whole heaven, for an
‘'ererlasrlug possession, was about to oe con
smemeted. It becoming, known that he
entertimed theseviews, pe was importuned
by many to write out his opinions, sad af
terwards to defend them in public. After
refusing bo to do for many years, be at
length complied, and has been principally
known to tno public as a lecturer on pro
phec}'. Ho was disappointed iu the fulfil
ment of Uh expectation in 1843, and came
oat the next year with on “Apology and De
fence,” ' acknowledging the want of accura
cy in his chronological calculations, but
claiming that the nalcra and nearness of tHo
event! was still sustained by Scriptural evi
denced In tnut belief, he has since lived
and died—worn out with the infirmities of
age. He was doubtless a sincere and de
voted ■ man, but his example famisht* an
illustration additional to innumerable others
in the history of the church, of the dangers
of a rasn promulgation of uncertain opinions.
Incalculable evUs have resulted from'his
course, but still it must be borne in mind that
much of them is attributable rather to bis
followers than himself.—Zion's Herald.
Censorship or the Press in Italt,—A
correspondent of tho N. V. Observer, de
scribing “Romaniem as seen at Rome,” sayy
<; Tiie strict censorship of the press is Italy
is a direct obstacle to the expression of
mind. It j? impossible to publish any thin"
opposed to the' peculiar prejudice of the
Church, or indeed a lair discussion of any
point on which it has expressed its opinion:
and fortunate is the luckless writor who at- 1
tempts it, if he escapes with the suppres
sion oi his book. The strictness of the ec
clesiastical control of the press in Itely,
passes the belief of an Amariaan. I hive
heard of one author, whose book, perfectly
orthodox in other respects, was condemned
because it contained two lines from Camp
bells “Pleasures of Hope.”
" Tha world was sad f—the garden vu a wild!
And mao, the hermit, sighed—till woman smiled.’
Jn these apparently innocent words, the
sharp sighted clerical functionaries who
watched over Iho press, saw .a /tovert attask
on the (elibacy oj the clergy ! The institutions
of the church wore in jeopardy.
.Every possible restriction is also placed
on the introduction of foreign books and pa
pers. On entering the lipal States,, the
VavoUer’s luggage is carefully searchedfor
them. 1 have heard of a gentleman who
had some Paris editions of the Italian poett,
with him, and they were refused admission
on account of their foreign dress.
Each of us bears within himself a world
unknown to his* fellow beings, and each may
relate of himself a history resembling tbat #1
every one, yet like that of no one.
