PHILADELPHIA, December 5.-Colorado
Jowett is out in a memorial to Congress,
representing that tho Constitution re?
quired each State to appoint electors; that
Lincoln and Hamlin were duly elected; that
at the (lection of Lincoln and Johnson
eleven of tho States did not appoint elect?
ors-therefore, Lincoln and Hamlin consti?
tutionally hold over until the late rebel
SI ates appoint electors, Abraham Lincoln
being President either as holding'over for
want of a constitutional successor, or Pre?
sident under d?claration of Congress.
Without the Southern electoral votes, it
was quite Unnecessary to question his po?
sition. At his death, however, the ques?
tion should have been, who is constitu?
tionally President, Hannibal Hamlin or
Andrew Johnson-Hamlin under tho hold?

MK. BEECHER'S CHURCH.-The cor?
respondent of the Bichmond Times
gives tlie following description of
what he saw ut Beecher's church on
the Sunday before last:
Mr. Beecher's "application of the
foregoing" consisted of a large and
varied assortment of ?irst-elas-s anec?
dotes, happy hits, humorous sallies
and pulpit, pungencies, which would
have made the fortune of a first-class
stump-speaker. The Puritans grimly
grinned, smiled morosely, and some?
times laughed outright. The young
people of the congregation tittered
and "sniggered" at an awful rate.
The decorum of the vast assemblage,
however, was upset by a large red
faced, good-looking gentleman, a few
feet from me, and looked very like ;l
Southern man. Ho laughed until the
tears rolled from his eyes, but ma?
naged generally to prevent any very
loud explosicn of merriment. Sud?
denly, however, Mr. Beecher let off
an anecdote of a parson whose mur?
der a grieving congregation deplored,
because "the bullet of the assassin
made a hole in the defunct ministers
vestments, and otherwise greatly da?
maged what might have otherwise
been useful to Iiis successor."
The anecdote did not strike me as
very good, but suddenly my neighbor
exploded with a "haw, haw, haw,"
which might have been heard a mile.
It reverberated through the. church
like a trumpet, and was, of course,
infectious, and a mighty laugh went
up from four thousand people. Mi*.
Beecher waited for the merriment to
subside, and then let off a number of
other funny things. The comic part
of the entertaiumeut lasted for at
least thirty minutes, and was intense?
ly enjoyed. Every one felt that Mr.
Beecher had done a liberal thing in
getting up a first-class Sabbath come?
dy, free of all charge to its auditors.
I was struck with the significant
fact that there was not a negro in a
church whose pastor and whose wor?
shippers are all afflicted with "negro
on the brain."
The Orangeburg Times says that |
three men, giving their names as Na?
thaniel Livingston, Archibald Martin
and Edward Neese, hailing from Lex?

fight, arrested by som'; freedmen,
who charged them with robbery. The
white men were lodged ii Orangeburg
jail.

Tile Presbyterian ?;<.>.??;?! Assembly.
Ia tho General Assembly of the
Presbyterian Church, in session at
Memphis, on Monday,- after the
transaction of some routine business,
the discussion of the subject of "The
relations of the Church to the freed?
men" Avas resumed. Dr. Baird sub?
mitted a scries ci resolutions by way
of a substitute for the resolutions
already before the Assembly. After
discussion, the whole subject, toge?
ther with both series of resolutions,
was recommitted to tho committee,
with instructions to report at the
ensuing session.
At tho evening session, the com?
mittee reported tho following, which
were adopted:
1. That this Assombly entertains
for the freed people the sincerest sen?
timents of good will and affection;
that it earnestly desires and prays for
their salvation, and would encourage
thc carrying out of every legitimate
means for the promotion of their
spiritual good. That this Assembly
believe the present condition of the
colored race in this country to be
one of alarming spiritual jeopardy,
and that it is binding on tis as .Chris
tians to do all that lies in our power
to save them from the calamities by
which they are threatened, and to
confer on them the rich blessings of
the Gospel.
2. That it be recommended to all
ministers and churches to exert
themselves to the extent of their
ability to continue to give the Gos?
pel to these people; to church ses?
sions to urge upon parents among
them of presenting their'children foi
baptism, .and of bringing them up iii
the nurture and admonition of thc
Lord; and especially to pastors,
evangelists and missionaries, to de?
vote a portion of their labors to thc
promotion of the salvation of tin.
freed people.
3. That in the judgment of thc
Assembly, it is highly inexpedient thal
there should be an ecclesiastical
separation of tin; white -and colored
races; that such a measure wotilc
threaten evil to both races, and espe
cially to the colored, and that, there
j fore, it is desirable that every war
ran table effoni should be made alice
tionately to dissuade the freed peoph
from severing their connection witl
our churches, and to retain them witl
us as of old. .Should they decline tin
fellow ship of ordinances, and desiri
a separate organization, then ou
Sessions are authorized to organize
them into branch congr?gations. Ii
sueh cases, the Assembly recommend
that such congregations shall be al
lowed, under the sanction of the Ses
"sions, to elect from among themselve
every year, such number of superin
tendents, or watchmen, as the Se.
sious may advise, who shall be charg
ed with the oversight of such con
gregations. These superintendent
shall report to the Sessions for thei
action all matters relating to the we!
fare of said congregations.
.1. Whenever Presbyteries may lin
it necessary to organize separat
colored congregations, they shall ai
point a commission of elders, wh
shall discharge the functions con
mitted to the Sessions in the preccc
ing resolution.
5. That nothing in our standarc
or in the Word of God prohibits tl:
introduction into the Gospel ministi
of duly qualified persons of an
races, yet difficulties arise in the gei
eral structure of society and fro]
providential causes, which may an
should restrain the application <
causes in the church of this abstra
principle. Holding this in view, tl
Assembly recommends thatwhenevi
a Session or. Presbytery shall lind
colored person wiio possesses suitab
qualifications, they are authorized
license him to labor as an exhort
among the colored people under tl
supervision of the body appointii
him.
G. That tho Assembly recommen
that wherever it is practicable, Sa
bath schools for the benefit of tl
freed people, especially the youn
be established in connection with o
churches; and that the sessions of t
churches take these schools into tin
charge and provide suitable teachc
for them.
7. That tho heads of families fi
exhorted to encourage thc freed pc
pie in their households to attc:
family and public worship, and tl:
they provide for them as far as pos
bio catechetical instruction in t
doctrines and duties of the Gospel.
8. That the General Assembly e?
nestly desires the' intellectual a
moral improvement of the color
race, and hereby tenders to all pi
sons suitably qualified who may lal
in the work its hearty encouragemc
and support.
The Assembly was afterwards d
solved by the Moderator.
EMIGRATION* TO TEXAS.-The Hoi
ton (Texas) Telegraph, com men ti
upon the immense influx ( f cr
grants to that State, says that c
gentleman alone has a thousa
souls, white people altogether, on t
way from Georgia to his lands
Trinity county, in that State. It Si
also, that South-eastern Texas is 1
ing densely populated by emigre
from all tho Atlantic and Gulf Sh.
The exodus from this State, if tri
must be confined to the Northc
portion, as we aro not apprised
the existence of the "Texas fever"

AMALGAMATION IN MASSACHUSETTS.
Tho Savannah, Ga., Herald records
the marriage, in Boston, recently, of
a Georgia freedman, named Henry
Gwinne, to Miss Abby N. Pidge, a
white spinster o': Massachusetts.
The Herald says:- " '?
Many of our citizens will recollect
him as having formerly belonged to
the Bev. Peyton L.*Wade, of Scriven
County, and having worked for
Messrs. E. C. Wade & Co., . of this
city. The celebrated iiroclamation
of the late President Lincoln set him
free, and ho went North to see how
his so-called friends would meet and
treat him. We have beard, from
Savannah men during their summer
trips, that Henry thinks "there is no
place like Georgia to live in, after
ali, but as iona; as ho can make any?
thing out of the Yankees, he is going
to try it on." As be has got married
to a white woman, who possesses good
looks, is of a respectable family, and
has a fair supply of money, it is very
doubtful if lie returns to his native
State._
Besides getting the "nigger" out
of politics, there is one otber thing
necessary to be done to cure the dis?
sensions now troubling the country.
There must be n keg of gun-powder
burned under Plymouth rock. We
never can have peace until that rock
is hoisted in fragments into the
atmosphere. "We should think there
was a great deal of moonshine about
the story of the Upas, were there not
daily afforded evidence that Plymouth
rock is more poisonous to the mind
than the Upas is alleged to be to the
bod3? The first and worst cargo of
emigrants to New England inoculated
the rock with a virus which seems to
constantly increase in strength and
capacity to infect men with mischief,
meddlesomeness and meanness.

between Shoe Lane and Salisbury
Court, with no cine near him, and
gazing upward, he became aware of a
buming sensation in the neck, upon
which he tore at his neck-cloth, and

indicting three small, but severe,
burns on the flesh, with one large
wound.

No QUARTER rou FENIANS.-The

not. A movement is said to be on
foot in Buffalo, N. Y., to send expe?
rienced officers, who served in the
late war, to Ireland.
