For the Presbyterieu Banittrata
'United Presbyterian BeOrel convention.
WABI3INGTON, Itsti.'lB, 1859.
MR. EDITOR :—A 'yew interesting Con-
V CI den of Ministers and Elders.. odu riected
with the United Presbyterian Church, was
held in this pliae on Tuesday.and,•Wednes
day of this week; of which I wish guTe
your readers a Brief 'account. To all intents
and purposes, it was just such a meetiog_as
those with which Preabyterinuellay.O become
so familior r of late, and aseeixtbledfor the very
same object—the revival of God's work.
But foe the Psalmody, you, Mr.-Editor, had
you been present, would not have rliscovered
yourself to have been out of the latitude:of
your own immediate brethren; so identical
in spirit and aim ,were the discussions and
prayers with those of our own Conventions.
The minister present, of tbe 'United
Presbyterian Church, so far eacan-rernem
bar, were—the Rev. Dr—natra l und,Mcsers.
Andrews, Thompson, Clark,' Carrion, Tag
gart, and Huston. A Most cordial invitation
was given to, the resident Ministers bf Wash
ington, who came in ,as spectators, to take
part in the'remarks and devotional exercises
of, the meeting, and this invitation was'as
heartily toOtipted. Metere. Cterctif the Meth
odist Church ; 13rowm,.of thePumberlind
Presbyterian ; Boyd, of tl3e ,Baptist; and
Alrioh, Wipes, and Brortnson, of tlie Pres.
byterian, as well its an unknown brother of
the. United Brethren, were all personally
thusinvited, and each took a free and earliest
part in the whole proceedings. And not a
discordant note was struck; nor 'a word
uttered. to give the slightest pain to any one.
The remarks were eminently ' Scriptural,
Evangelical,, earnest,' and brotherly; just
suoh, indeed; as were calculated, with- the
Divine blessing, to exclits the spirit of 'gen
uine revival in the hearts -of all present.
The prayers, too, were humble, importunate,
and warm.hearted. Arid the singing was
marked with the same fervor of united and

biiithren of all the different denominations
represented. And the' large assembly of
Christians of these denominations, and oth
ers, hung with marked and prayerful atten
tion upon the remaiird of iaoh speiker,,as
if fearful that the benefit of S' word might
be lost. All present seemed , teleel that the
Spirit of God was, of a,truth,,iMthelr Midst.
To whit are we coming in these times of

have supposed, - has led - them, in Aimee past,
to look with coldness, if not with Opposition,
upon revivals, are found thus cordial andspir

have been thought,' a few yaorsogo, of a pro
ject to Unite BaptistO,lfethOdistA, , and Pres
byterians, with our good' Seceder and Aisp
elate Reformed brethren, in meetings for
mutual 'exhortation and , prayer, in, behalf of
a revival of religion, and especially of such
a project emanating from these last-named
brethren, themtelves ? Yet I thank 'tile
Lord that I have been an interested witness
of all this. If , such be the first fruits of
the late union out of which the United
Presbyterian Church has sprung, I cannot
but hope that a career of enlargement and
_prosperity is before that , body. God will
not fail to bless stiah a spirit and such
The Convention, before its adjournment,
authorized a Committee of their number to
call a similar meeting at such a time and
plane as they might think'fil. Mutual con
gratulations and thanks were warmly ex

to realize " how good and how pleasantitis

Church Extension. '
ST. LOUIS Jan 10, 1859
• The Church Extension Committee of the
General Assembly ask , attention to the 'g
lowing facts :
let. The, applications for aid this year are
sixty per cent. in advance of 'those received
during the lame perioeof any former year:
Since April let, 1868, one hundred; and
twenty.two churces have sought help.
This, is forty.six more than during the , cor. ,
responding period of any past year. Ninety
eight-of these one hundred. and twenti-two
churches _specify $44,886 as the. smallest
amount of aid that will enable them to
complete their houses of.worship free from
debt. The remaining twenty-four churches
have not fat stated their wants with pre
cision. At the average of the 'ethers, theY
would swell the amount asked for'.by the
one hundred and twenty-two churches, , to
$65,000, or at least $22,000 more than has
ever before been applied for in the
2d. Our appropriations exceed our mesa
on hand $7,750. The ordinary receipts,will
pay these appropriations as they fall due;
but we cannot anticipate our' income much
farther with • safety; and do not think it
right to run in debt. Special donations ex
cepted, no appropriations larger than $5OO,
and but six larger than $4OO have been
made during the nine months of the present
Bd. We are using the gifts"of the benev
olent to help feeble churches build- :low
price& houses , of worship. Thus far, this
year, appropriations have been made tusA ,
enty churches. Four of these are special
appropriationa j for which the Committee
Sake no responsibility,, Of the remaining
sixtraix churches, fiftyleyen cost from $6OO
to $3,000, , and nine from $3,000 to $6,000.
When it is remembered that most of these
churches had to pay from $8•to 46 per hun•
dred feet for their lumber; froin $9 to $l2
per thousand for their brick in the-wall, and
scorn $2 to $4 per day for meehanics' wages,
no reasonable man will think that the Onds
entrusted to us for distribution have been
used to pamper pride, or build unduly ex
..Fifty.eight of the, above, sixty.sis churches
had from live to fifty members. The re.
maiming eight, from fifty to seventy-five
members. Not one of the churches we
have aided, either in numbers or means,
could properly be called a strong church.
AU, so far as we could learn, had shown'a.
commendableliberality, and many had'made
great sacrifices before they sought aid in
4th. The amount received ismot one third
the amount applied for this year.
oeipts since April let., 1858, are $17,271791.
The applications, ea* stated above, call for
$55,000. It is, however, a cheering fact,
that the receipts this- far this year are
$2,65e, in advent* of the receipts of the
corresponding period of any previous yeat.
' The unprecedented floo`C;of Applications,
the excess of appropriatioils over present
means, and the pressing wants of many ap
plicants, constrain us to ask the Churoh for
a large and immediate increase of contribu
tions to the Church Extension work.
To every one whom God has blessed with
wealth, or with a heart to make sacrifices
for. the extension of his kingdom, we
present these needy hands of disciples as
worthy Ojeda of substantial Christian sym
pathy. Especially to the twenty-eight hun
dred churches, on the roll of the Assembly
'from whom we have as yet, this year, re
ceived nothing, do we appeal for the means
to relieve sister churches in distress. • •
Donations can be sent to Archibald (him.
ble, Treasurer, St. Louis, Mo., or to arty of
the Receiving Agents, named in the Home.
and Foreign Record.

Board of Domestic Missions.
Mission Rooms, 910 Arch Street,
Philadelphia, Jan. 9, 1859.
RECEIPTS $14,400 LESS
The receipts of the Board of Domestic
Missions from March let, 1858, to January
let, 1869, were fourteen thousand four hun
dred dollars less than during' the corres
ponding peiriod of the last fiscal year I- The
statement of this fact should be Suficlent to
convince all the patrons of the Board of the
urgent necessity of largely augmented pecu
niary aid. Can any other appeal to the
churches be 'necessary in addition to the
simple statement of this enormous diminu-
tion in the receipts of the Board'? Must it
not be obvious to every one, that it will be
utterly impossible to carry on our domestic
missionary operations without reducing ei•.
ther the number of our missionaries, or their
salaries, unless the receipts of the Board
are speedily and largely augmented?
Last year, when the treasury was entirely
exhausted, the friends of the,cause liberally
responded to our appeals, and will they not
do so now ? .We, are aware that business
has not generally revived, and that many
have' not yet recovered from the effects of
the recent monetary revulsion, bat are there
not many others who have been more highly
favored, and who can and ought, therefore,
to give liberally of their abundance ? Can
not all do something, even though in some
oases it should require self4lenial? We beg
all our readers to reflect and pray, and then
act as their enlightened consciences may
dictate. Remember the Divine declaration,
" There is that soattereth and yet increaSeth ;
and there is that withholdeth more than is
meet, and it tendgth to poverty."
Oar fiscal year will close on ;the', first of
March; those, therefore, who digit) to'have
their contributions acknowledged in the An
nual •Report of this year, shonld send them
before that time.
