Charles B. sniyihe, of B ack Crook laine, is> in tio.ible this time for taking a drink. The complaint was made by John Rosen borough and Harman C. Hen derson, m mbers ot U,e Eleventh street United Presbyterian Church, and is one of the most remarkable yet given to the world. It was as follows: ti:e complaint. The undersigned hereby complain to the First United Piesby eriao Pn shytery of of New York, and ou>.rge that ace run g to an article published in toe New Yoik Sun of date Monday, April 11, 1870 Charles B. Smjthe, minister and parlor of Eleventh Street United Pu shy,emu Church was on Sabbath day, April 10, 1870, guilty of the fol lowing nitbdeuioinoxs, to wu: First—That after he had finished the ser mon he called together tin "who pome Sec ----- ------ --------- ... - , well knew A liquor and refreshment saloon ! in the avenue near by." .

Seveutti—That " the viands having been disposed of, all arose to leave, auu Mr. Binythe, turning to the barkeeper, careless ly requested bun to hang that up." * Eighth—I hat " the barkeeper, who a-em ed to know him, said ah right, and the parly passed out and separated." Your cou plainanta hereby think that the facts mentioned in tLe foregoing allegations involve a breach of the lourtti command ment, as contained in Exodus, twentieth chapter, seventh mid eleventh verses; and they respec fully submit tout if these faeis should prove true, the said Rev. Charles ii. Smyihe ought lo be censured. The case c-ame on for trial yesterday at the Rev. Mr. Srnythe'- church, before Muderat- r Finlay imd the Presbytery. The proceed ings were op* ned wuh prayer, after which there Vas some unimportant discussion as to the manner of hoidiug the trial and in re latluu to a paper purporting to come from Mr. Smythe's congregation, asking for a dis-olution of his pastorate. Rmythe ol. jects to the paper ou the ground that it came from a few persons and not from the cm gr< gallon. The paper was laid on the taule, Mr. Fmy.be then rea l his answer to the complaint, which was almost ss flue a pit co of writing and quite as rtmaikahie us the complaint itself. BjlYTUES ANSWEB. John Rof enhoioagh snd Harman C. Hen derson vs. Charles oinythe.—For answer in this cause to ihe complaint the above named defendant says that the complaint, in the language iu which it is framed, is untrue iu every pariicuiar, aud respectfully requests that the Presbytery pronounce judgment accordingly up n them as tin y appTar iu the daily newspaper ou which the complaint is based, and to acquit him of all ibe charges in full. But the a< lend .at fur ther tajs that after church ou Sabbath, the tentlkday of April las', he went to a re spectable Hotel on Broa*'iw-.y, ate a break fast, sipped tome gin u:,d milk, from the .former* t which liquids he had about tix tefispoenfuh, according to the best of his recollection, and a pot ol black tea for luuch; but on the s me occasion there weie two gentlemen with ii.m— members of the prest—who tuck a p'ateol ■ yetersraw e*ach, aud one of them a glass of ale, the other some gin aud milk, the same in quantify as the deieudant took; tlia*. it being the (Sab bath day, deieudant did not pay the bill, but . requested ihe ca-mior to make a note ot the amount, and defendant called and paid the bill the n**xi day. Defendant further says that he resides four miles from the church, that forasmuch as he teaches a bible class there at two o'clock, it was not possible for him to go home to his lunch and come back in time, and that tpemg much exhausted after preachL iug, aud after a very busy week, he felt very much in need, physically, of such a lunch as he took. And as to Ins having company with him on the occasion, he believes that when the attendant circumstances shall be shown by the evidence, the Presbytery will consider them snfiiciently • extenuating to render that fact excusable, and hopes and respectfully requests that accordingly no censure shall be pa-sed upon him then for CHARLES B. SMYTHE. May 3 A. D. 1S70. TESTIMONY OK A HERALD REPORTER. The first witness examined was John Ste phen. He testified that uu Sunday, the tenth of Apiil, 1870 he was present in the Eleventh Sire*-t Presbyterian Church lor the New York Herald-, remained in the church until the close of the sermon ; when Air. Symthe came from the pulpit he weut, up to him.aud leqnested that he might supply him with some historical facts; asked tome the eeimou, and wished to have the opinion of Judge Biackstone on ihe law ol adultery; Mr. Symi lie said lie was going to lunch, atiu invited him to go along and he would give him the notes; wont down the ai-,i« aud waited until he got through; did not hear Mr. Srnythe call together any number of re porters; the gentlemen ne saw tho leverciid gentleman talking to wi re members of t ie congregation; knows the members fit the pr ss very well; west up Eleventh stieei to Tliiid avenue, and was joined by Mr. P. F Eaton, a gentleman, wuo a-ktd to be allowed to mak'- some notes for the Sun ; he felt some d fii'ence about giving him no'es of the sermon, as he had promised it to the Herald, but subsequently asked him to j* in ilnm, ha they were going to lunch, and it would be awkward to stop iu the stn et ; then went to Broadway; on reaching Eighth street they went into the hoiel on tue Eighth street entrance ; the re was no attempt whatever to enter surrepti tiously ; went into a priva'e room: Mr. 8myth*- did not ask him to partake of intoxi cating drinks; he waved his hand and said, "(Jeutleruen, order what you please." Mr. Eaton ordered a glass ol ale; he ordered some oysters; Air. Srnythe ordered a beefsteak, and he (Mr. Mnyilie) afterwards ordered giu and mi k; he (wiiuess) (bought that he would like to tak*- seine ot it too; because it Was anew drink; a desulti ry conversation followed on nationality; read the paragraph ill the Sun; ih*re might bo a shadow of truth a bum. wuat it coniained, but it was untrue in ail the particulars; the facts are distorted; a c rrect staieixuut would read very diff reutly. cross-examined. There was nothing uin-lerieal whatever in the Conduct of Mr. Srnythe; he now believes the paragraph to be untrue in every par ticular; no grace had been asked on ihe oc casion that he eou d hear. ie K v The R v. "Mr. Miiy lie address*d the Court, and said that lie had been r* buked at ad wu-town restaurant when he first came to the cou ii iry;ior a log grace.

Pret-byterian church; asked Mr. Srajthe in the stre et to permit him to ref r to the , historical matter m his discourse; was | asked to go v. ith him and he wouid give j him some notes; they went to a restaurant; they w.ie asked to have some refreshment*; ! he looked at the Herald reporter, and then I aiid he would have some aie; after going to ■ the Sun office, while ilr. btepueu was there, j he mentioned casually to the city editor the i good treatment they had received from Mr. ! 8m J tbe - aud ou tbe following morning he saw an article in the Sun added to his re ,p >rt which he had not written; would not write auch an ariicle, because ho would deem it a violation of hoipitality, thought that Mr. Siuyihe looked fatigm d when at the re.taurant; never heard hint eay any thing about "live fingers" or "ha' g it up;" something had been eaij to the barkeeper, hut he curd not say what it was; he did not pay lor the refreshments; considered the place respectable, or else Air. fcsinytne would nut have goi e in there. 'lho Citie tor the prosecution then closed. Mr. Suiytke ezpiuiued that the couditn n of his health requited that he should lake the beverage he had taken, and concluded by demanding an acquittal. Mr. It isenbor ough. on oehalf of the prosecution, said he was glad the charges against his pastor had proved unfounded. It is expected that Mr. 8ui,jtUe wiil be honorably acquitted. THE M ACE.ALLKX CIUllT. JKoih ''Gentlemen'' - , ! gi.iet is reported in prime condition, audit I is assentd that he expresses the must mi j plicit confidence in his ability to win. John <0. Hcei an, who is one of Mace's most en thusiastic admirers, wiil doubtless second j i,j m t j. e tight; and ns the Benicia Buy is In MniinlOcroi Condi tion "From the New York Run.] The near approach of the great battle he tv,ten Mace ami Adm, app iuled to come • If on the tenth iustanr, is ttie all-nl sorhu g topic ami l g the gentlemen who delight pnzo fighting. Tue f> cling in Now Yolk is ; Jaigely in favor of Muce, ho is amply proven j by the odds, which stand one hundred to a fifty in his favor. The famous English im no novice in Uie magic circle, he will render i most efficient aid to ill*' doughty champion j during the struggle. Heenan, who his been j \ or sometime ut MaceV quarters, aid daily spars and txtreitee with him, aays iu let | ] e rs to hi, filends "that Mace will get a l. v with Allen quite handily,"and unheu ating iy pronounces him "one of the must scien tific and gsmeat men which England ever product d." Another old gentleman of long experience says boldly to his friends ana ihe public: "Mace is game; he knows how to fight, and you can bet your bottom dollar that he will do it, too." A letter received from Oiirs. Conner, dated April 2d, confirms the above in every particular. Allen's backers seem equally confident. John Gouuliug. his trainer, sends word "that his muscles are solid, his lleeh hard, and hi3 powers of en durance all that posaib y can he desir. d, ' while tne well known Joe Cuburu, wlio will probab y minis'' r to 1 im dufitig the "litile Uuplea^antm ss," is in ecstasies ever his tine c mdition, which he aacribeo to the fact that his system is entirely free from the evil ef ffcC's ut dissipation to which so many cham pions have been addicted. While tho quick witted, sharp Coburn appears so delighted with Aden's condition, he d ies not seem disposed to express publicly any positive opinion as to the final result, but seems to coincide with Allen, that it will be a plucky, scientific, desperate fight. They seem io place gieat reliance on the fact that Allen is far the younger, anil has had recent expe rt nee, while several years have elapsed siDco Mace shic-d his castor in the l ing. Be ibis ns it may, the alfjir seems destined to come ufl'on time; the money is all up, and the programme seems to be arranged satis i tcturity in a'l details. The atmosphere, on the eve of this great event, is thick with lying rumors of challenges and battles to come; one to the effect tnat Cusack; the trainer of Mace, remarked "that he wa; ah themed to make a match for Rocky Mo re t'> fight Allen for any amount up to foOO " Mr. Mo.-re requests us to deny thisflitiv, and to strt'e that he has retired from the ring, peilectly satisfied with his laurels and limited experience; and, furthermore, that he *, 0 ' tid. re h m eif competent at ail times to make his own engagements. We have gooa rejsuns tor saying that Co bum is willing to fight the winner of the Mace and Alleu match for ?10 0t)0. Wnat this gentleman fays he is very apt to m* an, for he is terribly m earnest, and he has good backers who are ready to stake him for any amount. Another rumor asserts that Keenan pub licly stated "that after the fight he would ho prepared to back one of the old champions, and an American at that, against the winner for $10,000." The Benecia Buy may possibly entertain the idea of trying his luck once more, but the probability is that he will name the Hon. Edward Piice, of Wasu ington city, who, it will be remembeied, fought Australian Kelly some tune ago, which little entertainment is said to have cost the Hon. John Morrissey several thousand dollars. iFrom the Kt. Louis Republican.] THE BELT KOR TOM ALLEN. h The presentation of a splendid belt to Tom Alien was to have taken place last uigut at the Theatre Cjmique, but was postponed a second time. Several circum stances combined to render a postponement desirable. The condition of the road iu front <>f the theatre, owing to the caving in of the sewer, was such that a casualty might have resulted (rom a largo number of people passing over ii; the hull was im perfectly lighted wilhgasoliue, and Coburn, who wms to have sparred with Alien, was out of town. It is intended to make the presen l.at ion after the combat between Allen and Mace, ou the tenth instant. It is report* d that John Morrifsey baa bee* me dDgusted with the society of the fellows he is obliged to associate with in the fog bank at Washington, and is about to resign and return to his lnro Jdauk.
