    every thing pertaining to this controversy, nett
having abundant testimony of the faithful and ef
ficient performance of duty, I have hitherto re
mained silent, although most shamefully traduced,
preferring to suffer mealy things, and yielding
ever y thing but principle rather than my or do
any thing which Plight in any way retard the
.rcgeo:rs of this great work, knowing and believ
ig, tuu, that the Goa of junco will ever watch
, ver ail who honor him null his cerise, and even.
tunny brine to naught the plans and purposes of
.esignieg men,
Three years ago the duties of the office of Asso
late Secretary •were donee refined, and him
ver been strictly observed sad faithfully fulfilled,
arefully avoiding interference with the under
alteration to these clefined duties was nes
dully as could be judiciously prosecuted. But
"another paper had been drawn up and sub
tted to the Secretaries, and after a full and free
fercnoe, in which it was agreed to strike out all
at related to the Corresponding Secretary, and
d a few additional lines pertaining to the duties
the Associate Secretary, it was in this spirit of
mpromise brought before the Executive Corn
ittee and with seeming unanimity adopted. To
0, arid if I mistake not to others, this was re.
rded as a finality, the spirit of this paper
was ready to not as long as I remained in con
%ion with the Board. You can judge, there
re, of my surprise, when, on my return to this
ty, after an absence of a month on official business,
cling under these instructions, to find that dur•
log this absence the following resolutions had
eon iutroduoed, and that subsequently, when
gain absent, these, with the annexed preamble,
;were again presented and passed :
.. ;' WHEREAS, The Board of Doti:testi° Missions, at
$ late meeting, having coneldered the suggestion
f the last General Assembly, did decide to con
.ue the office of Associate Secretary; and,
horses, it did also instruct its Executive Come
naittee to define his duties; and, whereas, the
aid Executive Committee did, on the 9th day of
August, 1868, only in general terms define those
Nudes; and, whereas, it is judged expedient in
(carrying out the views of the Board to give more
hopeoifie instructions ; therefore,
' "Resolved, That the Associate Secretary be, and
hereby is, instructed to commence his labors in
[ -the bounds of the Synod of Albany, stud to visit
the Synods in the order in which they stand in
'the Minutes of the General Assembly.
•. "Resolved, That the Associate Secretary be fur-
Lther instructed to report in writing to this Corn
,-"mittee, from time to time, the churches visited by
:him, stating particularly the names of those, if
ny, which may agree to become self sustaining,
the decreased amount of aid which any may con
sent to ask from the Board, and how many
Churches may be induced to adopt the systematic
f lan of benevolence inaugurated by the General
ssembly, and such other information as may be
eemed useful to the Board."
In view, therefore, of the fact that this addl
onal paper imposes duties which, in my judg
, ent, as well as that of many others, are inexpe
lent and unwise, and cannot be performed; that
some respects they are utterly impracticable,
ii that an attempted fulfillment of them would
ore odious and damaging to the cause of Do
, estio Missions, to either of which I cannot for
~ n e moment consent to contribute, it only re
, sins for me to tender to you my resignation of
i e office of Associate Seoretary.*
The fourteen years of my life spent in oonnex
n with this Board have been years otanxiety
4toil. Many anxious hours and 'sleepless
' ghts have been spent trying to encourage our ,
oted missionaries and provide means for their
equate support. Many of you know hew I
Five often plead for them and interceded in their
shelf, being always ready to, share their trials,
d in every possible way contribute to their
~ omfort. My sympathy they shall ever have,
nd so long as I remain a member of this Board
red this Committee, they will find me, as ever,
lrir warm friend.
With almost every member of this Board
raring this whole time, my intercourse has been
leasant and cordial ; and if, in the heat of eon
oversy, motives have been im:mgned, and bitter
d unprovoked attacks have been made, from
hich the .interests of the Board may enffer '
ill bear me witness that in no way 'have I eon
' muted to this result. The responsibility must
I all upon those to whom it is justly due. My
Inoue prayer has been, and ever shall be, that
he Great Head of the Church will have you, and
11 the interests connected with this Board, under
Is special care; and that every thing maybe so
overruled as to contribute to his glory and the
dyancement of his cause. '
Very respectfully yours, &0.,
* That the oonstructiOn pot npon these instructions was
correct, was clearly inaniftes in the discussion which arose
in the Board where this paper wee first prestnted, viz., that
Um,' embrace not only every Synod in its order, but entry
ohurch, whether missionary or self enetaining, in our con
nexion in rich Synod. Apart. therefore, from the question.
—if question It le stall—whether a committee of any Board
bee the right to institute this general and particular il3(11:11.
it is certainly true that there are many localities,
and whole Presbyteries, where this work could not be per.
formed, and where any attempt of the kind would be re.
buked. Some 'Presbyteries are entirely independent of the;
Board, and not a few hold bate nominal connexion with it,
whilst others have long since evinced a dispositim car.-
fully to watch over their own missionary church:a, to foe
tar, as well as guard them from any improper use of mis
sionary funds. With this understanding they have contin
ued their connexion - with this Board. For many years lest
pest, this very work bee been virtually, and I will add, eat
lefectorily done by me, but in a way and manner entirely
different from the one prescribed. This, many of the b . Tth.
ran ell over our Munch well know. But much more im
possible and odious still would be the work prescribed whale
our independent, eelf.eusinining churches. They are all
responeible to their respective Presbyteriesfor the faithful
performance of duty, and not to our Boards. The informs
tion sought can, perhaps, be otherwise obtained ; bat in this
' official way it would certainly prove not only impracticalios,
but offensive, and consequently injurious to this Board,

Reminiscenees of some 'Ministers formerly
of the Synod of Pittsburgh.
Da. MOKINNEY:—Permit me to attomp,
to interest and profit some of your more aged
readers, by a notice of the ministers that
were members of the Synod of Pittsburgh
nearly thirty years ago, but resided in that
part of the territory which now makes the
boundaries of the Synods of Allegheny and
Feeling an interest in the religious Con
ventions held by our Synods, I entered that
of Allegheny, and found its members occu
pied in eulerun praise, prayer, and exhorta•
tion. But in looking around upon the
ministers, I saw present, of faces once famil
iar, only those excellent brethren, Munson,
Coulter, McCready, and Nesbit. These and
Dr. Dilworth are, I believe, the only minis
ters that now live within the Presbyteries of
Erie, Allegheny, Beaver, and Allegheny
City, who were there twenty.eight years ago.
Fathers Boyd, MeGarrah, Riggs, Bracken,
and Redick, of the Presbytery of Allegheny
—moderit, retiring, but useful men—have
gone to their rest Of the former Presby
tery of Erie, the dignified and polite Alden;
the lovely Tait, of Mercer; the devoted
Eaton, and humble Condit, have long since
ceased their labors. Of the former Presby
tery of Hartford, (part of which now makes
the Presbytery of Beaver,l the ardent
Hughes, the sedate Satterfield, the animated
Woods, the calm and kind Vallandigham,
the meek Semple, and humble Beer, have
ceased from their labors, and with the oth
ers, as we hope, are praising the Redeemer
in heaven, and perfectly comprehend the
mysteries of that Gospel which they preach
ed oil earth. Besides the five brethren still
living within the now Synod of Allegheny,
that did, at the time before mentioned,
there were present other Fathers, who have
removed to that side since—our long-esteemed
Professor in the Sewin%ry, Dr. Elliott; our
learned and pious Dr. Swift; and Dr. Plum•
er, who is abundant in labors. But I must
cease this kind of notice of the living. Some
one will present these and others, so that,
being dead, they may yet speak. I may
just add, however, that a venerable Elder,
who led in prayer in the Convention, almost
made me feel that his brother, father Mc-
Curdy, bad risen from the dead.
During last week, being called by duty to
attend the Synod of Pittsburgh and Conven
tion at Blairsville, I found present; of the
twenty-five ministers who twenty.eight years
ago made the Presbytery of Redstone, Drs.
Fairchild, MoFarren, and Patterson, and they
ate the only members who now reside within
its bounds, of the number specified. Father
Johnston and a few others are spending the
evening of the day of life elsewhere. But
we must not entirely forget, those eminent
men, Dr. Power and Mr. Henderson; that
kind father Laird ; the talented Graham ;
the sociable Clutlnie; the excellent Win.
Johnston ; the sednte sod exemplary 11,Prd ;
and father Davis, so useful in his Oily; with
father Speer, who sometime later, before
twenty-eight years ago, had been removed to
his rest; and afterwards, from the same con
gregation of Greensburg, his more youthful
successor, Henry, closed his labors on earth.
Long may their present pastor live.
Of those present at Blairsville who were
members 'of the Presbytery of Ohio at the
time before specified, there were only Drs.
Campbell, Jeffery, brother .Mollvaine; and
myself. Of the former twenty-eight mem
bers, the venerable Dr. Herron lives, after
many years of useful labor; Dr. Halsey lives,
his lips still dropping "frankincense and
myrrh ;" brother Job still blows the Gospel
trumpet, with the ardor of a conqueror;
and our learned Dr. Smith, of Jefferson
College, abides in his useful station. But
the soul is saddened when we remember that
since the period we take note of, that pio•
neer, Dr. McMillan; that untiring laborer
from house to house, and from street to
street, lather Patterson; that modest, la
borious servant, father Andrews; the ora
torical Mercer; the learned Ralston; the
pleasant Stockton; the kind and pious
Woods; that brilliant and benevolent edu
cator of youth, Dr. M. Brown ; that sound
expositor and reasoner, Allen; the meek
and useful Cunningham; .and others of
whom I would like to present one leading
trait of character—all sleep. . ,Yea, we hope,
all sleep in Jesus, till they arise to hear the
annunciation, "irell done, good and faith
ful servant."
Living brethren, ministers and elders, let
us work and pray while "it is the day."

Some of the most experienced officers of the
Customs are beginning to urge the adoption by

system of combining specific with ad valoripn dit

five dollars, and the other five hundred dollars.
The British system would levy a specific duty of
say two dollars upon each shawl, and to that sum
add an ad valorem duty besides. It is claimed
that this system would be more equal than any
other, and secure more revenue.

Coal in Cincinnati.
The Cincinnati Gazette says the stock of coal is
running down rapidly, and prices have advanced
to sixteen cents at retail, for Youghiogheny.
The city is getting into a critical condition again
with reference to this important article of fuel.
The river continues below a coalboat stage, and
should severe weather set in while it is in this
condition, it would be difficult to prevent the
infliction of another fuel famine. It is becoming
clear, that in consequence of the rapidly increas
ing consumption of coal, the river cannot, with
safety, be much longer relied upon, exclusively,
for supplies, even with the improved modes of
transportation introduced by the barge system.

was let on lightly at first, and gradually:increased.
After continuing the operation for some time, the
hearing of the man was so much restored that he
could bear a heavy rap upon the table. Again
the wires were inserted in his ears, and the fluid
applied. Oa removing them the second time, the
patient could hear loud talking in the room.

Celebrated Liver Pills, prepared by you, I take
great pleasure in recommending them to the pub

certain cure for liver complaints and all bilious
diseases, no matter how difficult or long standing.
I myself was afflicted with this dreadful disease
for over two years, and oh I how thankful I am
that I heard of these Pills. I purchased of one
of your agents three boxes, and before I had
fi niebed the third box, was completely cured. I
verily believe, but for Dr. M'Lane's Liver Pills, I
should have now been in my grave; but as it is, I
am now enjoying the best , of health, and stand a
living witness of the efficiency of Dr. ll'Lane'r
_Liver Pills. Besides recovering my health, I
consider that I have saved in pocket some two or
three hundred dollars physician's fees.
This testimony I give you with the greatest
pleasure, and hope it may do something toward
making these invaluable Pills known to all who
are suffering with liver -complaint.

The London Times, speaking of the wretched
condition of Mexico, says that there is no reason
why England should oppose the ambitious designs
of the government at Washington. It considers
that the establishment of any government of law
and order in Mexico would be a gain. It also
ridicules the Spanish expedition as farcical, awl
contends that every gun fired on Mexican terri.
tory is fired to the ultimate profit of the great
Anglo Saxon Northern Confederacy. •

These two lambs' of the flock are gone. Gone,
but not lost, we humbly trust. Christ doubtless
has said, "Suffer these little children to come
unto me, and forbid them not." May we not
fondly hope that he has come into his gaiden and
gathered these lilies to himself t? In this solemn
, of his providence, he says to the
bereaved ones, " Therefore, be ye also ready,
for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of
Man cometh." J.C.

Jane Pursell, aged 10 months.
44 Suffer little children to come unto me, and
forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of
Johnnie, we on earth do miss thee,
We thy loss most deeply feel
It is God who bath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Go, little Johnnie, loved one, go,
A mother's heart can tell,
And none but hers can fully know
How bard to say, dear John, farewell
How short the race our little friend bee run,
Cut down in all his bloom;
His course but yesterday begun,
Now finished in the tomb.
Farewell, dear one, those happy hours
Ne'er thought they 'd pass so soon,
But like the full and open rose,
Was plucked when just In bloom.
Why should we weep or mourn for him,
Or wish him back again,
Since he has gone to joy above,
With Cit.lst - to live and reign.
Dian—Of typhoid fever, at the residenoe of
her husband, in Cannnshurg, October 29th, Mrs.
Ems:Bats PAXTON, in the 49th year of her age.
Mrs, Paxton was for many years a professing
Christian, and a member of chargers Presbyte
rian church. She was a woman of good judg
ment, prudence, and a kind heart. She was
modest, quiet, and retiring in her habits, devoting
herself entirely to the duties of her family. She
lived a consistent Christian life, and this, to
gether with her peace and trust in the Saviour in
death, has left to her husband and children, and
'friends, the hope that she has gone to join in the
world of glory, her lately departed brother, T.
B. Wilson, and two of her children, all of whom
she seemed already to see, in her last moments.
She has left a numerous family to mourn her loss.
DIED—In Westmoreland County, Pa., October
10th, ANNA M., daughter of Charles and Louisa
Silverman, aged 1 year, 3 months, and 10 days.
Our light is dim Med, our eyes suffused with tears,
Our little Annie, ah ! she is not here;
Here are her toys, her dress, her vacant place,
And all that's loved, but little Annie's face.
But why lament—bright windows to her sight
Poured forth a stream of heaven's celestial light;
Then why with anguish should our hearts be
riven t
Those smiles, so sweet on earth, are sweet in
Before the throne, our little Annie stands,
In blood-washed robes, a harp within her hands;
Radiant with smiles, whilst we in sadness roam,
She waits to welcome us when we go home.
Than—On the morning of the 22d of October,
ELIZAPIFTH, wife of George G. Orr, Beg., of Hol
lidaya Cove, Va.
The above merely tells that another of our race
has laid aside this earthly tabernacle, and taken
her eight to the spirit land. The world does not
know the trials through which she passed, or
bow. she was sustained in her passage through
"the dark valley." When a professing Chris
tian, wife, and mother, dies, the Christian and
the worldling each, are interested to know
whether, in the trying boor, she was oheered by
the sweet consolations of our religion, or was she
left to battle all unaided and alone with the king
of Terrors ? Tb such we would say, that,. reet•
lug on Divine promises throughlife, she was fully
sustained by the assurance of the Christian's hope
in death. On the morning preceding her death,
she called each of her children, took a farewell
of them, commending them to the love of a
enveua...t keeping God, then quietly resigned her
self to the will of her Father in heaven. Grad
ually—so gradually that we could hardly notice
the change—she each hour grew weaker and
weaker, until she gently sank in death, and her
spirit took its flight, as we feel assured, to the
realms of eternal bliss.
"So fades a Summer cloud away,
So sinks the gale when storms are o'er;
So gently Idiots the eye of day,
So dies a wave along the shore."
Dian—Af Canonsburg, on the 10th inst., Joint
WEAVHR, M.D., from hemorrhage of the lunge, in
the 89th year of his age.
Dr. Weaver was a graduate' of Jefferson Col
lege, and of the Jefferson Medical School of Phil
adelphia. His professional life was spent in
Canonsburg, where he had an extensive practice,
and enjoyed to an unusual degree the confidence
and esteem of all who knew him. The- arduous
labors of his profession were sustained with re
markable energy and fidelity, even when a pru
dent regard for his own feeble health would have
required him to desist. He continued to be
found at the bed side of his patients, as long , as
his failing strength would possibly permit. The
period of confinement preceding his death, was
of brief continuance, and it was all employed in
"setting his house in order," and in preparation
for the great change. His characteristic modesty
and self-distrust, together with the• very high
standard of Christian character which she bad
conceived,' had hindered him from making a.
public profession of religion ; although he had .
a profound regard for sacred things, and was so
constant in his attendiinie at the house
and so exemplary in all his deportment, 'that most
persons supposed him to be• a member of the
church. During the last days' of his life he en-'
deavored to analyze carefully his religions feel
ings; and while he was still distrustful of
himself, be was enabled deliberately to say, that
"his hope was in Christ alone," and that "he
cast himself as a sinner at the foot of the cross,
in humble hope of salvation." He charged his
sorrowing wife so to live and to train up their
three little ones, that they all might be prepared
to meet him in heaven.
He was a grandson of the late Rev. Tohn
McMillan D. D. A—number of his medical

Recommendatory Notices of the Religious Press; '
[From the Christian Freeman.]
"The Golden Harp" is becoming qutte `popular. Prom a
careful perusal of it, we judge it worthy of adoption by
our schools generally. We commend it to the attention of
enperinteadents and teachers, as a valuable acquisition to
their means of religious instruction and worship.
[From the Christian WatehmanOnd Reflector.]
"For every occasion on which good music is desirable—
and there are few, if any, on which it is not—sothething
appropriate may be selected from this book, which contain*
more than five hundred choice pieces."
[From the Schoolmaster.]
"It is an admirable collection of hymns and familiar
tunes which must be found acceptable to those who want
a new music Wyk for the Sabbath School. We have recom
mended it personally to our Mends."
[Ft om the Christian Register.]
"This is properly a book of hymns. as well as of tunes.
It contains four hundred and thirty-eight hymns—long,
and short—and one hundred and twenty tunes, the hymns
being scattered through the book on pages with the tunes
to which they are fitted. The selection of tunes is good,
and the hymns are nearly all practical, and free from oh.
jectionable doctrine. This we consider essential,, and an
important recommendation of the, book for the young, and
we see no reason why it should not be generally' adopted
in our Sunday Scheele." • '
[From the Olive Drench.)
"It contains upwards of five hundred hymns and tunes,
including the beat of 101 previous collections, together with
a large number of new pieces, which most, from their pe
culiar adaptation to the wants of schools, become general
favorites We have .never met. with a book of Sabbath
School Music which wb_could so unreservedly recommend to
the 'special attention of pastors, superintendents, and
teachers, and to all persons interested in the moral and re.
Deena culture'of the young."
This volume is all that can be desired for - a book of the
kind, and is rapidly attaining a popularity far exceed
ing that of any similar work Sabbata Schools in ail por
tions of the 'United States are adopting it, and the prospect
is that it will supersede a large majority of Sabbath School
Music Books now in use.
Superintendents and Teachers wishing to examine the
" GOLDEN HARP," with a view of introducingit in their
schools of Masses, will receive a copy on the remittance of
25 cents, free of postage.
