RALEIGH, February 20.-The convention was
engaged in organizing tho Congressional Dis?
tricts. A debate took place on suffrage, in
which such Radicals as Poal, McDonald and
King, opposed severe test oaths and disfran?
chisement, while stringent measures were ad?

Thc Tyng Trial-An Interesting Case.
1 he New York correspondent of the Phila?
delphia Ledger writing under date of Saturday
last says :
The very positivo announcement, by tho
steamer Palmyra, at this port to-day, that the
Bishop of Oxford has openly gone over to the
Roman Catholic Church, is making a great
breeze among tho Episcopalian-some of
whom are unwilling to credit it. The author?
ity for the statement, you will observe, is a pri?
vate letter, said to have boen written by the
Bishop himself, to a friend in Cork. So posi?
tivo aro some of the Roman Catholic clergy
here of the truth of the story, that I am in?
formed they will refer to it in their pulpits to?
This incident imparts new interest to tho
contest going on in this diocese of the Episco?
pal Church, between the so-called "Oxford"
pttrty, and tho Evangelical churchmen, as de?
veloped in the Tyng trial.
Tho court-room this morning (fourth day),
was thronged to excess, and many persons, of
both sexes, as on yesterday, bad to go away,
unable to obtain sitting or standing room.
Most of the forenoon was occupied by Mr. Nash,
cooneel for the prosecution.
In Ramming up the case, he contended that
the charges against tho respondent had beon
fully proved. Even his own witnesses had con?
tinued the fact that an intrusion had taken
place, ?ind that, too, against the expross pro?
test of the incumbents of both churches.. Tho
words of the Saviour, upon which counsel for
the other side had laid so much streps, "Preach
the Gospel to every creature," waa nr ? given to
3very man, but to" Christ's chosen witnesses,
?vho had been with him, and saw all he did.
l'he command was given to thom, and, by con
1.quenco, to their successors-but to none
>thers. That command, thoreforo, was to bo
ntcrpreted in a limited sense.
The learned gentleman, then at great
ength, went into an elaborate exposition of
;he canon law, and defined what was meant by
parish limitations. The whole field of canons,
oe said, wore nil in harmony, and ono could
not bo disturbed without marring thc whole.
In conclusion, Mr. Nash aaid, if it were de?
sirable to procure a modification of tho canons
30 as to allow of tho larger liberty for which
tho respondent was craving, the legitimate
way would be to sond delegates to the General
Convention, to show tho reasons for that
change, leaving the result with that body.
Courtlandl Parker, Esq., of New Jersey, fol?
lowed for tho defence. Ho contended that Mr.
Tyng had dono nothing deserving of censure.
Ho had only preached thc Gospel. His only
crime was that he had not the consent of the
Rev. Dr. Stubbs or the Rev. Dr. Bogga-two
gentlemen who had committed a great ecclesi?
astical blunder. If these reverend gentlemen
had assibted, instead of opposing Mr. Tyng,
possibly the whole of that Methodist congre?
gation "in New Brunswick would have been
brought into what they considered the true
This was the first time that a clergyman had
ever been put on trial for a violation of the
croon in question. Tho canon, however, was
not violated if it was correctlv interpreted.
The fact is, tho canon was ni ado ia order to
prevent persons encroaching on the limited
salaries of clergymen and any interpretation
differing from that would stultify the Church.
The gospel should be preached" ovorywherc,
and no one could or should prohibit it.
Various precedents were quoted and authori?
ties referred to to maintain the position that
the respondent had done nothing calline for
ecclesiastical censure. The following is ver?
"Does a minister violate a canon if ho
preaches, or lectures, or prays before a poor
sufferer in a railroad car, or in an almshouse, a
hospital, or oven in that house where tho pro?
ceedings are always oponed with prayer, or in
bis (conusel's) own famdy ? And will it be con?
tended that every timo a minister reads prayer
in New Brunswick ho must get the permission
of Messrs. Stubbs and Buggs ? [Great laugh?
ter.] Why, certainly not. And in that case he
had better pray extemporaneously." [Laugh?
Counsel also put the case in this light :
Supposo a brother to bc sick in New Bruns?
wick, and you are asked to go and see him,
must you run all over the city to find Stubbs and
Bogga ? [Great laughter.]"
Counsel-1 don't wonder at the laughter.
TLi President-Nor I either, sir, but I would
liko a little order.
Counsel.-Or suppose you have a Methodist
sister about to be married, and you are asked
to officiate, must you run all over to find Stubbs
andBopgs? [Laughter.] Tho whole thing is
Mr. Parker occupied the tleor for more than
two boura, and. like Mr. Nash, who preceded
him, enlisted the unbroken attention of tho
auditory. The court then adjourned until
Tuesday morning last.
A PASTORAL LETTER CONCERNING AMERICAN
WOMEN.-Bishop Arthur Cleveland Coxe, of
New York, has issued a pastoral letter in rela?
tion to American women, in which he discours
cthas follows. It will no doubt strike home to
many an American household :
When I seo the tawdry fashions, the costly
vulgarity and the wicked extravagance of the
times, I feel sure that thousands of American
women are strangers to the first law of refine?
ment-simplicity in manners and attire. When
I seo that thousands of American women read
the most shameful romances and the most de?
grading newspapers, frequent tha vilest dram?
atic ent'rtainments, and join ia dances too
shocking to be named among Christians, I feel
that Christian matrons are becoming too few,
and that civilized heathenism is returning to
the fields we have wrested from the Indians.
When I read daily of the most ungodly divorces,
and of crimes against social purity and against
human fife itself, which are too gross to be men?
tioned moro particularly, I feel that too many
of our countrymen are without God in the
world, and that radical reforms are necessary
in the system of education on which tho young
women of America aro dependent for their
training. When I see thousands of households
in which young girls are reared for a Ufo of
pleasure "without reference to dut,', I cannot
wonder at these results, nor at the misery in
which they involve families and communities.
Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. As a
Christian bishop, therefore, I make my appeal
to you, Ch ns ti an women, and I r.sk you to be?
gin the reformation by faithfully bearing your
testimony against all that tends to the degrada?
tion of your sex, and the more so when Buch,
crime is"not only winked at, Lut receives counte?
nance in circles which ought to be exemplary.
CONVENTION HELD BY AUTHORITY OF THE
RECONSTRUCTION LAWS OF CONGRESS,
TO FRAME A STATE CONSTITUTION
FOR SOUTH CAROLINA.
The convention yesterday made no progress.
Important questions were pending, buc as WOB
said upon the floor by one of tho delegates,
the members apposred to have left their school
books behind them, and were, therefore, un?
prepared to recite their lessons. It was ex?
pected that the judiciary report would elicit no
little discussion as important changes were to
bo suggested, but owing to tho fact that the
printed copies heretofore distributed had boen
sent to an admiring constituency or retained
at home, the majority of the body were utterly
benighted as to the wisdom of the legislation
proposed. Something like five hundred dollars
worth of time was consumed in debating what
to do, and finally it was agreed to do nothing
until the printer could furnish fresh material.
The first reading was given to sundry new
articles, and the convention went to dinnor at
an earlier hour than usual.
PROCEED.NGS OF THE CONVENTION.
The convention assemble! at tho usual hour.
Mr. C. C. Bowen offered a resolution that the
General Assembly, at its first session hereaf?
ter, shall ratify ;ho 14th articlo of tho constitu?

Mr. R. G. Holmes, of Beaufort, introduced
the following ordinance, which was referred to
a special committee of five.
In offering the resolution he said: "I hold
in my hand a proposition which I wish to pre?
sent" to tho consideration of this body, and I
hope it will be referred to a special committee,
and that it will bc adopted by this convention
and engrafted into this constitution. For, in
it we see not only all thc practical relief con?
templated in that impractical mensuro so
earnestly advocated on this floor for three
days, bnt we will find in this a measure in
which every inhabitant of this State is most
deeply interested-a measure which, in its re?
sults, will not only furnish tho relief contem?
plated by so many, but will also furnish a reve?
nue which will pav off tho entire dobt of this
?SECTION 1. It shall be thc duty of tho legis?

Mr. E. W. M. Mackey offered a resolution
requesting General Cunby to remove the pres
entSuporintendent of thc Stale Penitentiary,
and appoint in bis place Wm. E. Rose, the
delegate from York District. Mr. M. stated
that a petition to that effect hod been aigued
by overy member of I ho convention.
The resolution was adopted.
On motion ol J. W. Allon, of Greenville, the
President of the convention was requested to
draw $20,000 lrom the State treasury in billa
receivable, to pay the per dum of members on
the 22d inst.
Mr. J. H. Jenks, ol' Bcrkeloy, offered tho fol?
Whereas, wo regard it to he the duly and

Resolved, That we petition Hie Congress of
the United States to take no action looking to?

Mr. N. G. Parker offered a resolution that

The convention proceeded to the considera?
tion ot thc unfinished business, which was tho

tution, lt was passed to its third reading with?
The next busiuess i i order was the first read?
ing of tho report of the committee, recom?
mending amendments to Hie constitution in
the judicial department.
L. S. Langley moved that the further con?
sideration of tho subject bo postponed until
the delegates could get tho printed documents
which they had loft at homo.
R. B. Elliott moved that one hundred and
fifty extra copies be printed.
Mr. N. G. Parker stated that oue hundred
and fifty copies would coat thirty-five dollars.
Considerable discussion followed. W. J.
McKinlay, of Orangeburg, said he thought it
would be cheaper to print than talk. If they
kept on, the debate would cost five hundrod
dollars at least.
Mr. C. C. Bowen said the convention reminded
him of a party of boys who had como to
school without their lessons. It was a strange
circumstance that so much interest should bo
felt in tho proceedings of tho convention, and
yet that they should leave at home the most
important documents on which the acti jn of
the body depended. Ho hoped, thereforo,
?tat the consideration of the judiciary report
ould be continued.
A rambling debate, interlarded willi all sorts
of motions, ensued, until S. A. Swails called for
the previous question, which was ordered.
The main question being on the motion to
postpone, it was decided in the negative. The
amendment to print one hundred and fifty
extra copies was likewise agreed to.
Tho following articles of the constitution
were then read the first time, and laid over un?

GREAT SCANDAL IN THE QUEENS BENCH-THE HE?
REDITARY GRAND CHAMBEHLAIN OF ENGLAND TN
On the 1st of F tbruary an action, in whloh
tho Countess d'Alteyrac waa the plain iff, and
Lord Willoughby dTDresby, the Hereditary
Grand Chamberlain of England, the defend?
ant, was brought before th J Court of Queen'*
In 1847 the Countess d'Alteyrac was the wife
of an officer of high position'and connections
in France. Her husband was travelling, she
formod tho acquaintance of the defendant, and
in 1849 sho left her husband and came to Eng?
land to live with Lord Willoughby dT?resby as
his wife She was visited by many of his
friends, and for many years lived happily with
him. She tended him very affectionately du?
ring a long illness, and on his recovery they
removed from town to Caen Lodge, Twicken?
ham, which was partly purchased by the Count?
ess's money ana furnished at her expense.
They hod one daughter, who was brought up
in ignoran o of the fact that lier father and
mother were not man and wife. Up to 1864,
when the Countess went over to Paris to bring
her daughter to London, no great difference
had arisen between herself and Lord Wil?
loughby, except that occasioned by some scan?
dal about Lord Willoughby's behaviour to one
of the maids ; but on the CounteBB's re?
turn 6hc was told by an agent of Lord
Willoughby that she must give up pos?
session ot Caen Lodge, which she considered
as her property. She refused, and was then
waited on by a friend of bis lordship, who ne?
gotiated a separation on the understanding
that an allowance of ?1200 a year, and ?4000
down should bo mado to the Countess, to?
gether with an adequate provision for her
daughter. Theso terms wero not considered
unreasonable, as Lord Willoughby has an in?
come of ?70,000 or ?80,000 a year. The Countess
then left Coen Lodge, the furniture of which
was sold, and realized ?8000. None of this
money was given to her, and of the promised
allowanco sho received only ?300. She never
saw Lord Willoughby after her return from
Paris, and her maid was soon after installed
mistress of Caen Lodge. The action was
brought to recover the money realized by the
sale of the furniture. The key to Lord Wil?
loughby's conduct was to be found in the fact
that th? bulk of the property he inherited from
his father was left him on condition of his
separating from tho Countess. The Lord Chief
Justice intimated that the whole matter had
better be referred to the arbitration of a man
of honor, and the counsel on both sides seem?
ed to think that this would bo the most de?
sirable course. Mr. Coleridge handed to the
Lord Chief Justice a draught of the terms to
which Iiis client the Countess would consent,
but, as Lord Willoughby wau not in town, tho
caBO was adjourned until the following Mon?
The family of the Willoughby d'Eresby is
one of the most ancient among tho English
nobility. The holder of the title is for the
timo being tho hereditary Grand Chamberlain
of England; and the present lord, who ia de?
fendant in this suit, ?a the fortieth barren in a
dit oct lino. What ls thought of his nob. btv in
tho Court ot' Quoon's B?nen may he judfrea by
tho following peroration of Mr. Coleridge's
speech, iu which the Lord Chiof Justice, by
tho course ho pursued, seemed entirely to
Mr. Coleridge said: It was true that she had
not been married to the defendant, but the ab?
sence ol tho religious obligations would make
tho relations between them, under the circum?
stances!, in some respects moro sacred to a
man of honor. She had left her husband for
him, had borne him a daughter, and lived with
iiim for fifteen years. She was os faithful to
him ns woman ever was to man. In health and
in sickness sho devoted herself to him with
unwearied attention. She had but one fault;
and if ho had in him one spink of the feelings
of a gentlemen, it did not he in his month to
reproach her with it. vf course, in the ab?
stract, thoso things are wrong; but to what ex?
tent they aro wrong, and what the complexion
is of this or that case, it is not for mon to
judge. Burns wrote:
"What's done we all can well compute,
Bul never what's resisted."
There may bo men who have never strayed be?
yond tho sacred circle of legitimate love. Lot
them thank God for it; but let no man set lam?
bell up os ti judge of those who had. Meu of
tho highest gifts of heart atid mind, mon of
stainless honor, mon whoso lives in other re?
spects were patterns of every graco and every
oxccllonce and every virtue, h.a.iin this respect
departed from tho into standard of morals; but
it would bo miserable cant und hypocrisy to
deny on that account tho hiirli and noble quali?
ties they posses ?. Thc mau would bo the big?
gest scoundrel that ever breathed who, having
lived with a woman during her best years, and
talton from her lier love und her means, could
then deli erately fling her off. Tho defendant
hero had acknowledged his obligation, and
would no doubt have carried out his expressed
intent ion bad lie not c imo under baneful in?
fluence. B ing so, he Baized lier wretchod
furniture ?nd turned her into the street.

but you aro a married woman-you cannot
maintain this action. I will take advantago of
thia legal technicality to defeat your just
claim. ' Let the Lord High Chamberlain of
England do this if ho dare-lot him go to
court and toll his high-souled and pure minded
Royal mistress what manner of actions her
(.'li'amboi'la.n commits ; and let him add that
ho resorted to a defence which miserably
failed-a defence as bad in law as it wau un?
founded in honesty and honor. [Applause]
The case terminated on the 3d of February
by a reference to arbitration. Tho Lord Chio?
Justice was to appoint the referee.
THE G BEAT WALK-SERGEANT BATES ON HW
TrtAVi LS-His DOINGS AT MEBIDIAN-Our read?
ers are familiar with Sergeant BatcB, the Wis?
consin Bay, who proposed to walk Irom VickB
burg lo Washington, carrying t he American
Hug, to lest tho spirit of the rebolB. A special
telegram from Meridian, Miss., to an ex?
change says :
Bates, thc ex-Federal sergeant who is to
walk alone and unattended from Vicksburg to
Washington by tho first of Juno, carrying a
United Statas flag, reached hero to-day. He
was cold, wet, and thirsty, and said ho would
like to take a drink.
He was escorted to a saloon by nn enthusi?
astic crowd of ex-robcls, who treated him with
distinguished consideration, and the wholo
party took sugar and whiskey. Bates pro?
nounced it good, and the partv took another
tasto all round. Bates still approved of the
mixturo, and wanted to stand troat himsolf,
but it couldn't bo thought of.
A dolen ation of citizons, headed by the
M oyor, called on Bates, and oysters were or?
dered. Bates took a dozen raw and a dozen
Iricd, with butter and popper.
Tho Mayor prcaented his guest with tho
freedom of the city. The bar-keeper now
treated. They all took whiskey and sugar.
Bates and tho Mayor adjourned to tho bil?
liard room aud played a friendly game, at in?
tervals taking whiskey and sugar. Aftor
which, on account of tho weather, they took a
littlo whiskey and sugar.
Bates now left the city on the Selma road,
but after going about half a mile, escorted by
the delegation of citizens, headed by thc
Mayor, ho returned and took somo whiskey
and sugar. The landlord gave BateB a bottle
of whiskey, and an enterprising grocery mer?
chant gave him two pounds of sugar, which he
put in his pocket.
After this, Bates left, on the road for Selma.
-Ohio, by a wise law recently introduced in?
to lier legislature, proposes not only to punish
tho participants in prize fights, but the spec?
tators and reporters.
