Cleveland, Ohio, May 23.?Rev. j. S.
Noble, of New Jeysey, introduced the
following resolutions, which were re?
ferred to a committee:
Resolved, That the continuous, persist?
ent and repeated efforts of the papists
throughout the country, under the
tutilage, direction and advice of the
papal nierarohy, to obtain control of the
school funds in the Beveral States of tho
Union, or to have a portion of said school
funds diverted from the legal and legiti?
mate uses to which said funds are
pledged, in order to devote the money to
the support of papistical schools, demand
from all Protestant ChristianB of every
denomination, and every citizen of the
United States opposed to a union of
church and State, resolute, determined
and Combined effort and unceasing
watchfulness to prevent the success of
the insidious attempt now being made in J
all sections of the country by the adhe
rents of the papacy to secure control of
the school money; and it is hereby re?
commended by the General Assembly of
the Presbyterian Church that all at?
tempts to subvert our school funds, or
m divert any portion of the various school
'funds in any of the States of the Union to
or for the use of any churoh or sect, shall
be resisted and prevented by all legal
and honorable means.
Resolved, That the outcry of the papal
hierarchy against what they call our
"Godless schools" can with far more jus?
tice and greater propriety be applied to
tho schools they have instituted. Da the
common schools of our country, the pure
Word of God is read without comment,
while in the papistical schools tho Bible
is excluded, ana dogmas and traditions
of men are substituted for the com?
mandments of God.

One reason why King Alfonso cannot
