pah!iAed a later on the Society, and in re
ply to the Pri?lcufor iTe9:;plo and the speech
or Dr. B J. Dreeltinridge before the Gen
eral Assembly, Lexington, in May last.
The object of the letter is to Fhow that the
changes made by the Society have been
greatly exaggerated, and that both the Re
viewer and Dr. Breckinridge have fallen
into grievous mistakes. The latter gentle.
man is treated with great severity. The
author speaks for himself, and not for the
other Manacers; says ..hat to obtain the
sentiments of the Christian community is
very desirable, but deprecates sectarian am
bition and dictatorial affectation.
The Methodist Quarterly Review has
charged its character somewhat since the
retirement of Dr. McClintock from the ed
itorial chair, and is now more adapted to
popular reading than before. The last num
ber has an article on Arminius, by Rev. W.
F. Warren Halle, Prussia, in which the au
thor quotes, with delight, " the statement
of some writer who thinks that Calvinism
makes the Almighty as bad as Tiberius, and
that of another, that the idea of predestina
tion is too bad for the devil." After this,
no one will be at a loss to understand the
spirit of the article. We had supposed the
time for the utterance of such language in
a respectable periodical, belonging to a large
and respectable denomination, had passed
away to return no more.
Buirinea's is greatly disarranged. Owing
to the many heavy failures, the Banks are
unable to afford any relief. And, contrary
to the expectations entertained by most
people some time ago, the suspensions and
failures in Philadelphia are without prece
dent. Yet we remember to have heard it
remarked some two or three years ago,
when this city was making such strenuous
efforts to obtain so large a share of the
Southern, South. Western, and Western
trade, that the day was not distant when
the policy then adopted would be bitterly
regretted. The reason assigned was that a
large amount of these sales were upon very
long credits, and with doubtful securities.
What influence these two facts may have
had in bringing about the present state of
things, we are not prepared to say.
The attendance at the State Fair was

Frederic W. Porter, who has been for
thirty years Corresponding Secretary of the
American Sunday School Union, is found
to have issued notes and acceptances for his
own private purposes, and without the au
thority or knowledge of the Board, to the
amount of $88,883.09. These were issued
and signed by Mr. Porter, but not entered
upon any of the books of the Society; and
it was only a few days ago that their exist
ence was discovered. This will greatly sur
prise those who have long known and
trusted this officer. The loss to the Society
will be very considerable, and it asks the
s}mpathy and aid of its numerous frieLds.
For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate
Board of Education•
Philadelphia, Sept. 29, 1857.
The Board of Education of the Presby
terian Church consider it a duty which they
owe to the churches, to make a brief state
ment concerning their condition and wants.
I. The number of candidates under the
care of the Board is not far from three hun.
Area and fifty.
IL The balance in the treasury in May
last was all expended in meeting the August
appropriations, together with the amount
received from the churches since May, and
the additional sum of $32,000, borrowed in
order to relieve the pressing wants of can-
111. To meet the November appropria
tion, (including the re-payment of $2,000
borrowed money,) the Board will need at
least $10,000; not to say any thing of Sy
nodical Colleges and Presbyterial Acade
mies, which expect pecuniary aid from the
Board. Their expeotations are based on
the general plan of the Board to assist Liter
ary Institutions in paying their current ex
penses while in the progress of endowment,
and in some instances, on contingent prom
ises made on condition that funds should be
contributed by the churches for General Ed.
The Candidates' Fund has, however, al
ways received the first attention of the
Board ; and the special importance of re
plenishing this fund arises from the fact
that these appropriations cannot be with
held for a single quarter, nor even postponed
much beyond the usual time of payment,
without subjecting the candidates to per
sonal suffering, and involving, in some cases,
a temporary suspension of their studies,
Under these urgent circumstances, the
Board feel it to be necessary to make known
the wants of these young men, and to solicit
from the churches an early and liberal re
sponse by collections for the Board of Edu
The trite but truthful adage, that "a
friend in need is a friend indeed," possesses
peculiar force in its application to the press
ing necessities of three hundred and fifty
candidates for the Gospel ministry, whose
ability to prosecute their studies depends
on receiving their regular appropriations
from the Board. We have lately learned
that a student of theology in one of our
Seminaries, who stands high in his class, re
turned to the Institution, a few weeks ago)
with only a quarter of a dollar in his purse,
and without any resources to pay his current
eapenees. Happily, the providence of God
his opened a door for his relief, and he is
now provided for. But his case is an illus
tration of the finances of very many of our
candidates. They have no resources of
their own, and unless the Board of Education
can send them their quarterly remittances,
they will be compelled to resort to. their
can personal efforts to earn the amount re.
( 1 114 ite for the supply of their wants.
Shall they leave their studieß to do this ?
Or will the churches send thew the necessary
Du MCKINNEY the controversy
upon the subject of baptism never cease ?
Is there to he no end to dissertations on
" Bapto," and "Baptidzn," " en," and
cis" ? Are we to hear forever of "going
down into Jordan," and coming up out
of Jordan; of "John's baptism and
of Christ's baptism ;" of " the Jailor, Cor
nelius, the Eunuch, and the desert ;" of
" Lydia and the three thousand ?" There
can be, certainly, no objection to persons
satisfying themselves upon these matters;
but the constant, unremitting discussion in
every Baptist paper, week after week, seems
to me calculated to exalt the subject to a
position which it neither holds in the Word
of God, nor in the mind of any truly en
lightened Christian The excellent articles
whioh have appeared in the Banner and
Advocate for some months past, have been
of a character to do good, and rather allay
the kind of discussion to which allusion is
made above, than provoke it. If published
in a book form, and distributed, they would
no doubt find many readers in the West,
and be useful. This question seems to be
an exception to all others in dispute in the
Christian Church. What we may call the
polemical period of the Church's history,
has seemed to have passed by, There is
not now a tithe of the controversy among
evangelical Christians, which had an exist
ence from fifty to seventy-five years ago.
Prelacy versus Presbytery, Presbytery versus
Congregationalism and Independency, Ar
minianism versus Calvinism, and many of
the old subjects of dispute, which alienated
feeling and served as apples of discord in
the Church of Christ, have been quietly
laid aside, and the champions of each seem
contented to rest satisfied with the laurels
already won. Not so, however, with the
mode and subjects of baptism. This is a
standing question for discussion; resorted to,
it would seem, by those who take a particu
lar view, for want of something else about
which to contend. I am often reminded,
by the eagerness of controversialists to de
bate this matter, of an anecdote told of an
excellent Seceder minister of Scotland, some
years ago. It was soon after the secession
of the Erskines and others from the Kirk.
The brother of whom the anecdote is
told, preached much upon the grounds of
the Secession, and made himself so familiar
with the errors and delinquencies of the
Kirk, that he was quite fluent when upon
that head. It was also noticed, especially
by the "clerk," or "precentor," who sat im
mediately beneath the high, old•fashioned
desk, that when our brother became con
fused in his sermons, as he sometimes did,
he would glide off gracefully to an attack on
the "auld Kirk," in some of her salient
points. One day, in preaching upon some
abstruse question in theology, our brother
lost the thread of his discourse; and, what
was worse, manifested an utter inability to
find it, notwithstanding his vigorous efforts
with that object in view. The "precentor"
having waited what he thought a reasonable
time, beginning to despair of the success of
his pastor in resuming his subject, just then
leaned forward so as to bring the befogged
Divine into view, and, with upturned
face, and so loud as to be heard by all pres
ent, exclaimed, "Fa upon the Kirk, mon,
fa upon the Kirk." The prescription acted
like a charm; was indeed a panacea; and
the reassured Divine was soon able to find
If the advice of one who has had some
experience in the unprofitableness of con
troversy upon this particular subject, might
be given, it would be, "Let there be no
controversy upon it. Let Pedobaptists
know their own opinions, and be able to
give a reason for the hope within them • but
so far as possible, leave the contest solely in
the hands of the opponents."
The above remarks are made in view of
the fact, that almost every Baptist paper in
the land is full to overflowing of this con
troversy. The good brethren of that de
nomination may not know how much of the
time of their people is occupied with this
matter, and to what a place it has attained in
their literature ; but it appears to Protest
ant Christians of other communions as a sad
waste of God-given energy and talent. If
the matter is so plain, let it rest; or at least
give it not that attention which confessedly
belongs to matters of more vital importance.
I had but just closed my obituary notice
to your readers, of the Rev. A. B. Church,
of the Presbytery of Rock River, when
news reached us that another pioneer in the
cause of Christ, in Illinois, had fallen. Rev.
Thomas Galt, of the Presbytery of Sangam
on, is with us no more. The death of
this most worthy brother has not been
wholly unexpected. He has for years la
bored under bodily infirmity, and has been
often, to all human appearances, at the
gates of death. Still he has rallied and
gone on with his Master's work, resolving,
when death came, to be found with his ar
mor on. And so it found him; and he was
enabled to say, as he went down into the
Jordan of death, "I have fought a good
fight ; I have finished my course; I have
kept the faith."
Bro. Galt was a native of Pennsylvania,
but came to Illinois at an early day, and
was among the few noble men who, amid
great discouragements, " bore the burden
and heat of the day," and we are now able
to enter into their labors. All honor under
God be theirs. Dr. Bergen long associated
with Bro. Galt, and who was with him dur
ing his last illness, and preached his funeral
sermon, will prepare a suitable notice. of his
friend and associate. It is enough that "his
end was peace."
The Second Presbyterian church of St.
Louis, unites with Dr. Rice in application
to Presbytery for severance of the pastoral
The Presbytery of Sangamon had an
unusually large attendance at their recent
meeting, Bro. Bergen, giving account of
it, says : " Presbytery passed the following
resolution by a unanimous vote :
"Resolved, By the Presbytery of Sangam

disapprove of the appointment of ? the Pro
fessors in the Theological Seminary of the
North West, located at Chicago, which was
made November last, because in our judg
ment such appointment was premature."

the Third church, Springfield, by mutual
consent. Bro. D. has received a call from

the State stocks of Missouri, Pennsylvania, Illi

for the investment, in order to contribute some

New Banking System in Ohio.
At the approaching October election in Ohie,
the people of that State will be called upon to ap
prove or reject a new law for the regulation of
the banking system, of a very novel and striking
kind. The title of the act is "to incorporate the
Bank of Ohio and branches," from which it ap
pears that the design is to establish one bank, with
branches all over the State, and finally to merge
all other Ohio banks in it. The new corporation
is to be located at Columbus, the State capital,
where it must, keep an. office open at all times to
the inspection of committees of the Legislature.
The Board of Directors is to be composed of one
member from each branch. The General Directory
atOolumbus is to furnish each bank with circu
lating notes, prescribe rules for the government of
branches, and see that they are in every case com
plied with. Each director is required to take an
oath, and give bonds for the faithful performance
of duty. Before any bank can obtain circulating
notes, it shall pay over ten per cent., in money to
the safety fund, to be held in trust as security for
the redemption of the notes.
There is a general apparent breaking up among
the Mormons in this Eastern section of country.
We have already noticed the discontinuance of
the Mormon newspaper published in this city,
and the suspension of religious worship at the
usual place in Broome Street. We hear also
that, last Sunday, at their head-quarters, at
Tom's River, N. J., where there has been a small
colony, for some time, it was announced that
hereafter there would be no more public worship
there. We understand that in Philadelphia
measures are in progress for closing up the Mor
mon church there ; public worship is to be discon
tinued, and all the business affairs of the sect
are to be wound up forthwith. This has the ap
pearance of decay and dissolution; but we are in
clined to think that it indicates a change of
policy, and that the Mormons in all parts of the
country, are to be summoned to Utah. Instead
of supporting missionary agencies in the Eastern
States, it is thought best to concentrate their
forces at head quarters. We understand that the

Accounts of the massacre at Cawnpore show
that the victims of Nena Sahib's treachery num
bered eighty-eight officers, one hundred and nine
ty privates, one hundred and ninety women and
children, and about four hundred civilians. Af

vanced to Bithoor, where News was entrenched,

Witboot offering resistance. On the 29th of July,
General Havelock, having crossed the Ganges, en
countered the enemy on the road to Lneknow,
and totally defeated an army of ten thousand men
with a little more than a tenth of its number. It
was, moreover, believed that Nena Sahib's re
ported suicide was merely a trick to throw the
British off their guard.
Turning from this part of India to Delhi, we
find that on the 29th of July last, the city had
not fallen. The mutineers had made divers
ferocious sorties, in all of which they were re

ill-health ; it was even reported that he bad died.

Moorsburg, Montour County, Pa., Mrs. MARGAILET
Baena, in the 57th year of her age.
The deceased had for many years been a con
sistent member of the Presbyterian Church. She
suffered severely from disease during the last year
of her life; but the Saviour whom she had long
loved and served, was with her in her affliction%
and enabled ber to bear her suffering with pa-
tience and Christian submission. Her mind was
'atm and clear to the last; her faith strong, and
her hope bright. She frequently expressed a de
sire to depart and be with the Saviour. She
leaves behind her an interesting family of chil
dren and a large circle of friends, to mourn her
departure and copy her example ; and join her,
we trust, in the world above.

Mrs. Hays was born in Shippensburg, Cumber
land County, of this State. While young, she an-
After her marriage, she came to this town, where
she resided till shortly before her death. She
was a member of the Presbyterian Church, and
filled her place well in it. Her disease, by which
she was taken away, was dropsy of the cheat.
It had been formed and increasing for a consid
erable time. Her strength gradually declined till
her last day; yet she was still able to sit up and
move about a little all the time. About twelve
days before her death, she had passed from the
residence of her son, in Snow Shoe Township, to
Lewistown, and did not seem to suffer by the
journey. She went there for medical treatment.
But her disease was too far advanced. It did not
yield to the remedies that were used. She sank
away suddenly and unexpectedly.
Mrs. Hays was long and well known by an ex
tensive acquaintance in this town and county, and
in the neighboring counties. And the remem
brance of the manner of her living, in her do
mestic and social relations, is the best euloginm
on her character that can be given.
