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 too 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, and.in 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 lit 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 ' you 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., B. HAPPERSETT. * 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, Far the Presbyterian gannet and Ldraeata 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 Pittsburgh. 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." 8 0 J. P.

He was afterwards received at Court and visited all departments of the gov ernment. The Turkish Admiral who recently visited this country, was remarkably .hospitable and attentive. The visit of the Sultan to the steamer Wabash, was the first be ever made to a foreign man of war.

Some of the most experienced officers of the Customs are beginning to urge the adoption by the United States. Government of the British system of combining specific with ad valoripn dit ties. Take, for example, two shawls, one coking 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. The expenditure for the Utah imbroglio, (says the Washington Star,) as far as made by the Quarter-master's Department, amounts to $5,132,- 000_ 4,947 wagons and abulances ; 53,396 horses, mules, and oxen, exclusive of animals for artillery and cavalry, were furnished. The pay of the officers and men, and the cost of subsistence, which would have been incurred, bad the forces been engaged in any other service than this, are not, of course, included in this estimate. • The cost of transportation is included, as it was an expense incidental to this . affair. The States learns from a friend who is almost direct from the Court of Madrid, that France has . _ taken up the subject of Cuban dependence, and, with England, is proposing to erect Cuba and Porto Rico into a semi-independent monarchy, on paying a recta from that island. This rents is to represent the interest and national debt to be as• sumed by the new monarchy, in consideration of her independence, the debt aid recta to be assumed by France and England es a bond for the non-annexation of Cuba to the United States. 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. Arkansas. The Legislature of Arkansas met en the let of November.

The taxable property of the State is put down at $99,873,248. Much of the Message is occupied with the affairs of the Real Estate and the State Banks, and the indebtedness of the State on occount thereof. The Governor. recom. mends the passage of a law prohibiting the cir culation of hank notes of a less denomination than fifty dollars. Deafness Cured by Electricity. The Altoona, Pa., Tribune, notices a remarks. ble cure of deafness, by electricity. A citizen of that place suddenly lost his hearing, and after every means known to the medical fraternity had been exhausted, electricity was resorted to. An instrument was produced, and placing the end of a piece of wire in each ear; the electric current 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. This operation took place in the afternoon, and the patient was then allowed to rest till the next morning, when the wires were again inserted, and after applying the fluid for a few minutes, the hearing of the man was perfectly restored.'

I feel warranted in saying, that they are a 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.

Besides recovering my health, I consider that I have saved in pocket some two or three hundred dollars physician's fees.

S. and Mary Poi lock, aged 2 years, 7 months, and 7 days, near Libertyville. 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 dispeniation , 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. DIED--Near Brimfield, 111., October 14th, JOHN STOCKTON, infant son of Geurge S. and Sarah Jane Pursell, aged 10 months. 44 Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." 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. W.E. 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 heaven.- 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.

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.
