The Eighth Sthkex LuTiii(.nA. Burial
Ground-More About thb Difkiculty Skcond
Mkktino op tiik Opposition. Since, our bit-t
articlo relating to the cuiHrovcrsy tnen existinu
between the two ptittios of the (lerman Lu
theran Church, aristjR from dtllereiicns ol
opinions and view in relation 1 1 the. disposal ol
the Kitrhth street cemetery, runny more faet-i
and circuiiistaiicoi have been brought to light
hs to the movement of both.
We then stated some ot tho reasons which in
duced the Church Council to apply to the courts
and the Lcfri.-dature lor the privilcne of sale, and
which were mainly the de-ire, on their part, to
raie funds tor the exicuton of their sect over
a more comnrclieusivc territorythus eiviuir it
a ftronncr foundation and u lanrcr Held of ope
rations. ?iiico thn we have ascertained that
there i. a stautiiuir incumbrance of about $511,00.)
on I lie c hurch properly, it- redemption heint
another reason ollered lor the sale ol the burial
ground. To oilxet, all theco aratinients of tiie
Church Council, the patties iu opposition brltitr
many and strong reasons to bcir upon the non
disposal ot thu t?rouud and .the di-intennciit or
the remains ot their Irienls and relatives. In
relation to the matter of lunds with which to
redeem the standing church debt, it is stated
that the ti unices receive a yearly income of over
$10,00(1 from real etlate, ami also a larue
amount from pew rents, not counted. Tins
amount, it is stated, if put to.cconomical use,
would redeem the church debt within ten years,
thus making uiiuece-sary the .sale ot any pro
perty for such purpose.
The theory upon which tho action of the
Church Couucil 13 based is, that by a clause in
tho charter, when two-thirds ot the conresa
tton lurieo to the disposal of a certain piece ol'
property, it has the power so to do. Second.
That the common law of Knj;land controls all
laws where the English lantrua-i'i prevails ih a
national lanrruase. And third. That the Eng
lish courts have decided fiat all mailers ap
pertaining to burial grounds, an 1 church pro
perty generally, shall be referred to an eccle
siastical court, which invariably suitaius the
desire ol a majority of the congregation as the
desiie of the church itself. But this latter
theory has been overruled by the higher ciurl
of New York State, which allit mcd that blood
relatives have an tiudcniabl o right to the relies
and inaves where are laid the bodies of de
ceased members of the family. The title of
that plot of Ground is eternal with the heirs,
and cannot be revoked. This has been the de
cision of the Superior Court of Nev York, and
the principle holds good iu the courts of all the
The Church Council do not desire the sellimr
of i lie whole property, but only about one hun
dred and twenty-five leer, or one section (a
quarter of the whole) lrom the south end. But
the selling of a section is met by the same oppo
sition ot the other party as the selling of the
complete ground. If the opposing party concede
the right to sell a part, they concede the r'mht
of the disposal of the whole. The party in
minority, being the party in opposition, have
taken vigorous measures against the movement.
Examinations have been had before the proper
appointed ollicer, in wuich evidence bas been
adduced bearing strongly upon tue reasons as to
why the measure is resisted.
It has been aseertaine 1 that a portion of the
church burial records have been lost, contain
ing the descriptions of the exac: places, an 1
where to be found, of those buried in trie
Lutheran Cemetery. Parties, therefore, who
other ie would coincide with the proposed
removal, cannot now do so lrom inability to
ocsiL'tiate the bodies, and where laid, of tlu-tr
lclfttive. We stated in our last article
on this subject, that if the remov.i
fchould take place the bodies would be
rightly interred iu a ground opposite Laurel
Hill Cemetery. It has been given in evidence,
aud is the gi.-t of one of the principal reasons
ot opposition, that the bodies, on account ol
the extreme emallue?s of the ground proposed
to be used, cannot be decently 'interred, but will
have to be placed in trenches.
In this same examination certificates were
produced by persons who had paid in sums
varving trotu twenty to thirty-live dollars for the
privilege ot interment, thus becoming vir'ually
the owners ot the land used as graves. Others
had written agreements to raise monuments
over the last resting-places of their deceased
relatives. This ground is sacredly held iu
memory hi those living whose parents,
brothers, sisters, and friends have lont rested
beneath its turf. The case for the opposition
has been placed in the bands of eminent
An adjourned meeting was held by those who
opposed the measure, in the City Assembly
Rooms. The attendance was fair, a large num
ber of ladies being present.
."Notice was given that an examination was to
beheld this (Thursday) aiternoon at II o'clock,
by the same examiner, at the Wetherill House,
Sausom street, above Sixth. An addition of
live ladies and gentlemen each was made to
the Finance Committee?. A motion that an
advertisement should b3 inserted iu three prin
cipal daily journals, giving the place ot busi

Holiday Appliances Substantial
Cubistmas Delicacies. The grand leature of
the Christmas festivities is the Christmas-table,
and to supply tbis properly with the requisite
delicacies is a task ot no little dilliculty. By
dropping in at the old-established grocery store
of W. L. Maddock & Co., at Xol 116 S. Third
street, below Ci.esnut, the purchaser, however,
will tind a great relief from the ditticulries whicu
may attend his peculiar situation. If he does
not know precisely what he wants, his lack of
knowledge will soon be supplied.
And it he does know wuat he wants, behold
the assortment from which he Is enabled to makp
his selections! In the way of fruits, he will tind
rutins, currant, lijrs, citrons, dates, English
and American picklea, and Rnglish, Indian, aud
American sauces; aud he will discover tin
assoitmcnt of French and S.iauish sar
dines, jellies, preserves, paper-shelled almonds,
aud every variety of preserved vegetables.
The canned iruits aud vegetaoies, in parti
cular, have been ''done up" in the most ad
nmable style. Tbe fresh peaches are espe
cially noticeable tor the rlchue.-s of their flavor,
while quinces, pea, corn, Lima beans, and
succotash that delectuble compound of the

And then, in the way of choe&es, just read the
list : Stilton. Cheddar, Edam, eutchatel,

to these we find French and Spanish olives,

besides all these there is a tempting display
oi potted meats, including ham, beet, tongue

the Freed man s liureou to prevent and prohibit thu
infliction of corporeal punishment for crimes and
misdemeanors in the lute rebellious States until tuoir
civil povcrnmonts stiull have been recoruized and

Mr. Koss (Kansa) called up the resolutions on
reconstruction, offered by him yesterday and
pili.ted In yesterday's report, and doltvered a
si eecb in advocacy of the right ol Congress to esta
blish frovcrnment in the Rebellious States.
Mr. llendereon oflbrred a re olution, based on a
dispatch from Governor Fletcher, of Missouri,
calling upon the President for information as to
nhetnerho bad, since the 1st of December, sent
troop into tbe interior of Missouri tor any purpose,
and it so, to indicate his reasons, oio. Tho resolu

Mr. fcpaulding (Ohio) arose to a personal privi

him on the Sib instant, and raforred to the Com
mittee on .Reconstruction J nut resolu ion simply
directed tiie Committee to inquire into the propriety
of propo.-iufr a joint resolution declaratory of tbo
pun ose of Congress in the reception of Senators
and Representatives trom rebellious States respec
tively, on the ratification by them of tho Constitu
tional amendment aud the establishment of a repub
lican loiin ol government.
He declared ins adhorenoe to the Constitutional
amendment iu a I its parts, and advised its adoption
as a measure ot conciliation and security, iu his
judumeit, if the amendment was ratitiod by throi
lourths ot tbe states represented in Cougross, it
could become apart ot the Constitution, lie Old
not believe that t'je approval or disapproval of tbo
amendment by the outstau .fnr communities, or any
oi them, would afreet the ratification of the amend
ment in the slightest degree.
It might become necessary ore lonn to p'aco tlios i
revolted States in the condition ot territories. If
that became npmirent, he should not flinch 1 1 otn t he
voik, though be wou'd tain save tbe country from
so great a staiu upon iU institutions or Govern
ment. Mr. Stevens (Pa at a subsequent stage of the
proceedings, said be had intended, perhaps irregu

Mr. Spaulding. He would only say now that he
thought ihe argument of ihe editor altogether ttie

ho would not go iuto the argument now, as the
milt nun (Mr. Spauldlng) was not in his seat, lio
1 1 a 1 only tboupht it prop-r to say so much in fevor
