says: "The river flxi of the most
importance, during this, month has
been that w hich devastated the valleys
of the lower Mississippi, Arkansas,
White, lied, and other rivers. The
crevasses on the Mississippi river may
be classified as follows: Between

several smaller ones, opening into the
j tltta of Mississippi, Arkansas and

large and small crevasses. The total
length of breaks in levees exceeds
twelve miles. The total extent of

land in Louisiana was confined to a
region of 20 to 50 miles broad, imme

The Presbyterian General Assem
bly has declined to answer the very
embarrassing question propounded by
one of the Illinois Presbyteries con- f
ccrning woman's right to exhort and !
nrav in rjublic. The Rock Iliver !
brethren desired to know whether a
literal interpretation of the language
of St. Paul would not prohibit women
from preaching, exhorting or praying
in a promiscuous assemblage. This
overture was referred to a committee,
of which Dr. Howard Crosby was
chairman. Dr. Crosby is a celebrat
ed Greek scholar, and he did not care
to imperil his standing among lin
guists by attempting to soften down
the restriction laid upon women by
the Apostle, and reported that a liter
al interpretation of the passage referred
to doc prohibit women from preach
ing, exhorting or praying in promis
cuous assemblages. This report was
warmly debated, but the accuracy of
Dr. Crosby's interpretation was not
questioned. The real matter at is
sue (although not expressed in words)
was whether Paula injunction was
binding on the Christians of this age,
or whether it was intended for a state
of society that no longer exists. The
General Assembly refused to Fend out
Dr. Crosby's rejiort as a law for the
churches, but adopted a substitute of
fered by Dr. Aikman, whieh gives
discretionary power to pastors and
elders to permit women to preach, ex
hort pray in promiscuous assemblages,
or to prohibit them.
