The Annual Meeting of the PRESBYTERIAN
HISTORICAL &cum was held in Dr. Brainard's
church, on Pine Street, on Monday evening, the •
11th hot. Henry J. Williams, Esq., occupied
the Chair. This Society is composed of the two
General Assemblies, the Associate Reformed, Se
ceders, and Covenanters. At this meeting, the
other division of the Covenanters, commonly
called "Old Side," was added to the Society.,
The Society unanimously adopted the act of in
corporation lately granted by the Legislature of
Pennsylvania. The Annual Report was pre
sented by Dr. Van Rensselaer. In this Report,
a very feeling and just' tribute was paid to the
former Secretary, the late Rev. Richard Webster.
This Society resolved, Ist, to publish an annual
volume of transactions ; 2d, to make an effort to
raise $lO,OOO as a permanent fund; Bd, as it will
be, next year, • just one hundred years'from the
re-union of the Synods in 1758; it was resolved
to memorialize the two General Assemblies on
the subject of celebrating the event in some
creditable, way. We clip the following proceed
ings from the American Preebyierian :
After the adoption of the Report, the follow
ing yelics were presented to the Society, accom
panied by addresses which seemed to be interest
ing to those present : By the senior editor of this
paper, a Sermon preached by Rev. Robert
Cooper, called "Courage in a Good Cause," one
year before the Declaration of Independence, to
Col. Montgomery's battalion of troops under
arms, at Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. Mr. Wal
lace read several extracts, which had in them the
true ring of the old. - metal. This was followed
by some, remarks by the Rev. S. J. Baird,' in
which be stated that John Knox 'laid it down ex
pressly, in his works, that kings held their
thrones by the election of the people, and could
be lawfully deposed if they violated the Consti
tution of the realm. Rev. George Duffield, Jr.,
then presented a MS. Salmon of his great-grand
father, Rev. George Duffield, D. D., preached in
1777. It added greatly to the interest of the oc
oasion, that Dr. Duffield was not only chaplain to
the first Congress, in conjunction with the ven
erable Bishop White, bat also ,the first pastor of
the Pine Street churoh, and lies buried beneath
the floor of the building in ivhichthe Society was
then assembled. Dr. Brainerd then expressed his
gratification at welcoming the Society to Old
Pine Street church, and added some rerainis. ;
comes of Dr. Duffield, which he had received
from old members of his congregation; among
other things, they said that Dr. Duffield, in• a
sermon, declared to the men of Ids congregation
that they ought to be ashamed to be staying at
honie when the army needed soldiers and soon
after joined the army himself, of which he bad
been elected chaplain. Dr. B. coneludedby pre
smiting to the Society a scarce volume of the
Sermons of Gilbert Tennent.
The following persons were then elected officers
of the Society for the ensuing
,year :

The edifice, erected at this place by, the
First Presbyterian congregation of Men
dota, was on Sabbath last (3d instant,)
dedicated to the worship of the triune God,
and Rev. J. S. Henderion installed pastor
by a committee of the Presbytery of Chica
go. Rev. 3. McKinney preached the ser
mon, presided and gave the charge to the
-pastor," and Rev. C. R. charged the
people and offered the concluding prayer.k
The building is substantial and neat, and
has been well, furnished by the ladies of
the congregation.
Edifice and lot worth about $5,000. All

This has been .accomplished in part, by
the liberality of the citizens of 'Mendota
and vicinity, and in part by the aid of the
Church Extension Committee:of the General
Assembly'of our Church, the importance of
which cannot be fully estimated.
4n the same day the Sacrament of the
Lord's. Supper was observed. Ten mem-
bers were added on, examination and by

after the organization of the congregation.

The important bearing of , Ilansas upon the sal
cial well-being of ,the whole country, makes it
the duty of a journalist to give the leading news
relative to affairs; when matters rdiable can
tr e known. Unhappily this is notalways the case.
Partizans have been so much in the habit of in
venting, exaggerating, and misstating things, that
1 it is almost impossible, ordinarily, to feel confi
i dent :that . we have' before us:' .:It
is now,
however, an ascertained fact, that there is free
access by the Missouri and that immigrants
in great numbers are flocking thither. ,
The absorbing question at present, is the foi
l:nation. of a State Constitution. The registry of
- voters, taken under the Territorial law,, is com
plained of as defective, partial, and' incorrect.
Hence the Free-State men talk of not voting for
Delegates to the Convention. If they - shall not
vote, nothing can be.expeeted but the election of
pro-slavery men, and hence 'a Constitution of
that type. But the , labors of the Convention
must ,be submitted: to,the people; and if, then,
there is the large majority ,of Free-State' men
which is claimed, and if the election shall be fair,
the Constittition will be rejected. This will sub
ject the Territory to another effort and some de
lay, before'it can be recognized in the sisterhood
of ;States. Let parties, however active and zeal
ous, be also patient and honest, and things' may
come right the end, the :majority will rule.
Governor Walker last - week took the oath of
office, at Washington, and departed for the Tetri
tory. He is a gentleman of much firmness; and
of great administrative ability. His birth and
education were in Pennsylvania. His political
- .
life was developed hi , 'Be is regarded
as Southern in his feelings. We see thatleading
men, North and South, accord to him a fixedness
of purpose to act uprightly.
In an address, publishetlin , the E Y. Times,
delivered by the Governor; just before setting out
1 for Kansas, he.says:
"The people of that Territory had a clear
and unquestionable right to decide for, them
selves upon the adoption of a State Constitution
-1:-andanytattempt on the part of anY Convention,
or any other body of men, however respectable
and influential they might be, to impose upon the
Territory & Constitution not sanctioned by ..the
popular vote, would be a usurpation and a, wrong
which could not be tolerated. for a moment.. So
far as the utmost exercise of his official powers
and his personal influence would go to secure that
xenon, Governor Walker said he was determined
the people of Kansas should have an opportunity
for a full, free and solemn expression of their will
upon the adoption of any Constitution that might
be framed—after a fair and satisfactory census
!, o f a u th e bona fide inhabitants who might be in
the Territory at 'the time. Re considered this
due to them. It was part of their inherent and
inalienable sovereignty. And he'should consider
it, "not only a Pettit of law and of officinl duiy, as
an officer of the TaTitory, but a point of honor as
1,?, man and et. Or typten,, i ,4o do everything:in his

be:ol:l4lrelitietO be the great point asset:l64llb the
peace and welfare of Kangas. If the people
could have such a vote, all dissensions would be
settled. And he regarded all the past differences
—the contests about the Legislature, about the
Topeka Constitution, about the census and regis
ter of voters—as preliminary questions; import
ant, undoubtedly, but deriving most of their con
sequence from their relation to this great and
paramount question—the right of the people of
Kansas to decide for themselves upon the Consti
tution which Play be offered for their adoption.
If this could be properly and satisfactorily ad
justed, all the difficulties which now embarrass
the settlement of the Territory would disappear,"
That this is not a mere thought. with Mr. Walk
er, but a settled purpose, founded on his Sense
of right, and the execution of which maybe con
fidently expected, would appear from a quotation
we see, of his speech of Deo. 10, in New York, on
the result of last Fall's election. He said:
" Is it not the duty, then, of every, patriot, and
especially of every member #f the Democratic
Party, to yield to the in-coming Administration a
cordial support in settling the only questien
which threatens the safety of the American Union.
To accomplish this great purpose;it is necessary
that all external violence and all
,interference of
citizens of other States shall he removed from
Kansas, and that the peoPle who have settled,' or
shall settle; bona fid4 in that territory; shall be
permitted to decide the question ,for . themselves.
Not only must all.external violence,. be, removed, l
but alt those unconstitutional jaws must. be
annulled which interrupt the free discussion' of

Prom Professor Louie Agaesiz :
" The Geological Works of Hugh Miller have excit&l the
greittiet interest, not only among scientific men, bat also
among general ;readers. There is in them a freshness of
conception, a . power of argumentation, a depth of thought,
a;pnrity of feeling, rarely met with In works of that char
acter. ; . . .. But what le in a great degreepeeullar to our
ritithor, is the sueoestful combination of Christian doctrines
with pure Ectentitlc truths
From Rev Thomas Chalmers, D.D., LL.D.:
'''',Since the death of Sir Walter Scott, be (Hugh Miller) is
the greatest Scotchmanthat is left."
From Sir David Breivater, LL D., F.R.S.:
"Among the eminent students of the structure of the
earth; Mr. Hugh Miller holds a lofts place, not merely from
the discovery of new and undesoribed organisms in the Old
Red Sandstone, but from the accuracy and beauty of his de.
sctiptions, the purity and elegance of his compositions, and
the high tone of philosophy sudreligion which distinguishes
all his writings. . . . With the exception of Borne. , be
uneducated genius which has done honor to Scotland daring
thi teat century has never displayed that mental refinement,
and classical taste; and it tallectual energy, which mark all
the writings of our author,"
From Rev. William Buekland; P.R.S.:
Dr. Rockland s aid, at a meeting of the British Alsace&
Geri, have never been so much astonished in my life, by
the *mere of any man, as 'have been by the Gedlogknil
descriptions of Hugh Miller. That wonderful man deseritieS
them. objects with a facility which makes me ashamed of
the comparative iimairrottess any poverty of my own de.
awriptions in the Bridgewater Treatise,' which cost me
hours and days s Or labor. I would give my left hand to poe
ms imeh powers of 'description as this man: and if it
pleases _ Providence Providence to spare his useful life, he, if any one,
wilt certainly . rendei silence attractive and popular, and do
equal service to Theology and Geology."
From Rev. William Minna, LL.D. :
"lie succeeded in placing his name in the first rank of
!knish scientific writers and thinkers. His works are char
siteriied by a fine union of strict science, CIIIBPie diction,
and enchanting description, which rises, not ucfrequently,
into the loftiest vein of poetry."
From Sir Roderick Murchison, F.R.B :
;' sir Roderick Murchison, in his address to the Geological
Society. "hailed the accession to their sci-nica of such a
writer." and said that "his work (Old Red Seud• tope) is,
to a beginner, worth a thousand didactic treatises."
