—We understand that some of the school

Satnrday John McCaHerty of Butler, form

D. Swain and A. M. Beer* delegate* to
their utatu convention. The returns from
Saxonburg arid Waflhington North, came

j The evidence for the prosecution was
j completed Thursday noon, and that aftcr
| noon some of the witnesses for the defense
| were beard, but on Friday morning there
i were rumors of a settlement, and a half
hour after court convened, a paper signed
by all the parties in interest, and in which
the prosecutors agreed to discontinue the
cases, aud the defendants agreed to pay all
costs and give peaceable possession of the
church building to the new trustees, was
handed to the court for its approval, and
when that was secured the costs were tax
ed, and payment arranged for and the
parties went home. This was a surprise to
everybody not acquainted with the rules
and discipline of the if. E. Church, which
required all regular church buildings to be
deeded to the church and puts autocratic
power in the hands of the Bishops as # to
properties and pastors. In this case we
understand that Rev. Pollard asked the
Presiding Elder to excuse him from preach-,
ing at West Snnbury, that the P. E. refer
ed the matter to Bishop Mallalieu and re
ceived orders to vindicate the church rules.
TLat has been done and now it remains to
be seen what will come of it.

"Sunday night's lecture at Fisher's Hall,
by Prof. W. S. Hell on "Liberty and
