thc ceremonies used in Hie recen I festival

not being in accordance with tho usages

Church, and hoped that thc ceremonies
would not bc repe lled. Kev. Mr. Ferry
defends his net loll ill thc matter, and his
friends contend thal he has not violated in
any particular the laws or rubrics of tho
church. The ceremony did not take- place
at a regular servil e of the church, and
though there is 110 rubric calling for the
censing of tho altar, the priests or thc con
gregation, those persons who uso such
ritual generally baso their action upon the

from exorcising his. functions, but this is
denied, and ir is asserted that a bishop of
the Protestant Episcopal Church luis no
power of interdiction of such ceremonies,
and that tl)0 ooh, w ay in w hich he can call
a clergyman lo account is hy presenting
charges liefere thc si Hiding committee and
putting thc clergyman on lrial for violation

by.a rupture between tho Secretary and tho
['resilient bas bern effectually disposed ol'
hy Ute publication of tho correspondence
between them upon tho subject, 't hc Irutli
is doubtless as Mr. Manning states in his
h iter. [Ie fnnnd that thc close attention
necessary In thc discharge of his ollleinl

Notwithstanding Ibo fact that but a lim
ited time remains to tho present Cougross,
and several of tho appropriation bills are as
yet uunctod upon, there is no reid founda
tion for Ibo report that an extra session of

Informed members of Congress believe that
no session will bc called, as nothing bul a
failure lo puss the regular appropriation
bills before thc 4th of March would neces
sitate it. Tbe unsettled question of a treas
