SUMMARY OF t.ENEKAl. CHURCH NEWS.
FRIENDS.
The Society of Friends has been reported to
bo dying out, but according to their official
statement, this docs not appear to be the ease.
At the just ending yearly meeting of the Ortho
dox body In this city, It was reported that their
numbers had increased by about 1500 durinij
the past year, and there are signs of renewed
activity and vigor In the body which give
promise of a long lifc-tcnure. The interest
taken in Sunday Schools is a good evidence
of . this, as well as the decline of exclusive
ness. as shown by a resolution at the late
yearly meetings of the society, that the busi
ness meetings of the society should not be re
stricted to members alone, but that any persons
Interested In their proceedings might attend.
There are twelve independeutyearly meetings of
Friends; that of London, where the records are
preserved from the year 1073, being the oldest.
The number of members in England It 13,815,
while there Is an attendance of non-members to
the number of 3!5!. There is one yearly meeting
In Ireland, one in Canada, and nine in the United
States, viz.: New England, New York, Phila
delphia, Baltimore, North Carolina. Ohio, Indi
ana, WeRtern Indiana, and Iowa. The Increase of
membership has been rapid of late years In the
South and West, and new settlements of Friends
are forming In Kansas and Missouri. The total
membership is estimated at about 82.000. First
day schools have been largely established in the
"West. In the State of Indiana alone there are
178 such schools, with 1121 teachers and 13,12:?
pupils. In North Carolina a Sunday Normal
school has been established. The Friends have
three colleges in this country, viz., llaverford
College, in Pennsylvania; Earlham College, in
Kichmond.Ind.; andW'hittier College, at Salem,
In Iowa. They have also large boarding-houses
nt West Town, la.: Providence, R. I.; Union
Springs, N. Y.; New Garden, N. C, and other
places N. Y. Evening Post.
' PRES11YTERIAN.
.'The United Presbyterian Assembly pro
nounced, at its late meeting, in favor of- allow
ing a marriage with a deceased wife's sister,
notwithstanding one of the laws of tho Church
forbids a widower's marriage within any nearer
degrees of consanguinity to his deceased wife
than to himself.
Tho Scotch Presbyterian Assemblies havo
l)ccn holdinsr their annual meetings. Tho United
Presbyterians expressed their general satisfaction
with Mr. Oladstonc's Diecndowmcnt bill, but
protested against the grants proposed for May
nootu College and for the Irish Presbyterians as
exorbitant and objectionable. The number of
congregations was reported at 599, and tho
members at 177,905. The Free Church Assem
bly's interest was absorbed in the question of
union with the United Presbyterians. Negotia
tions with a view to union have been making
for five years. The difficulty has been a fear on
the part of the Free Church that their brethren
were not strenuous enough on the duty of tho
State to support tho Church; for, though the
Free Church refuses aid from the State under the
conditions on which the State will give aid,
It is firm in the opinion that the State ought
to aid in its support. Tho friends of union
pressed the measure of continuing a committee
on the subject of union, who should do nothing
more than report progress a year hence; at
which time, alter a period during which the
Church might consider the subject, tho Assembly
might remit tho proposition to the presbyteries
for their decision. After bitter opposition by
Dr. Horatius Bonar and others, it was carried
by an overwhelming vote. In 1807 the vote for
tinion was about S$ to 1, in 1808 it was 4 to 1, and
now is nearly 5 to 1. lue uiscussiou was pro-
traded till long after midnight, and it was half
past 1 when the vote was taken. Dean Stanley
was present till the end of the debate. The
meeting of the Assembly of the Established
Church was of no special interest. Indepen
dent. ' The corner-stone of a new church edifice
was laid at Goshen, N. Y., May 11. The church
Was organized in 1720.
The number of graduates from theological
Institutions this year was 101. They were di
vided among , the different seminaries as fol
lows; Princeton, 23; Allegheny, 14; Chicago
14; Union, 37; Auburn, 14; Lane, 9.
Kev. Henry B. Smith, D. D., says the Euan
gelUt, was, at last advices, in tho south of
France, slowly recovering from the prostration
. Induced by many years of exhausting labor. i
A correspondent of the EoanaeUst thus de-
scribes the success that has attended the labors'
rof Rev. J. B. Dunn, of the Beech Street Church,
New York. "Church income raised from f 1900
to 48000 in a year, the membership increased by
. one hundred and eighty, an empty honse now
. filled in the aisles with camp-stools, and $30,000
. raised to sweep off an old debt in a day! Tho
' man who has done this great year's work is no
genius, but a 'terrible toiler,' loves to save souls,
aud has got hold of the Scotch-Irish clement
and the j ouug men." j
Mr. Edward Kiggs was ordained in New
, York on the 13th ln-." He is to go as a mission
ary to Turkey.
' " METHODIST.
Peter Matthews, a f ull-bloodud Indian, for
. nierly a private in Company E, 40th Iowa In
fuutry, is preparing to become a Methodist mis-
Blonnry.
The Methodist preachers of New York have
m Instructed a committee to select places for street
preachiug, and to ask tho Mayor for leave to
occupy them.
The largest Methodist salary paid in New
, England is $2500 and house-rent, to the pastor
of Tremont Street Church, Boston. The largest
' membership, 048, with 48 probationers, is that of
St. Paul' Church, Lowell.
' Several of the Methodist bishops. Including:
Bishops Morris, Simpson, and Kingsley, have
declared for lay representation, lue elections
held thus far indicate that it will pass by a
largo vote. Those .reported by tho -.Methodist
( are 1401 for It to 598 against. The Chl
catro Advocate has reports of 1792 votes
for and 223 against the measure. The Pittsburg
Advocate has reports of 1871 for to 458 against
it. About three-fourth of the members stay
away from the polls.
. ' Bishop Simpson tlitw defines the plan sub
l niittcd to the churches for action. The plan, he
a ii wnul'l nrt oilmtt nnv lnvinnn into the An-
1 nuaf Conference, nor give them anything what
ever to do with th appointing of preacher.
But fromj the larger conferences two laymen are
' to be sent to the General Conference, and from
the smaller ones ono. When the General Con
- lurence was so organized, the preacher would
, vote on any proposed measure, ana, u carnea,
It would bo voted on bv the laity, and, if car-
' tied, would then become a law. Neither the
i lergy nor the laity could do anything without
, the concurrence of the other branch of the con
'' Terence. Thls.lt was said, . would be a check
upon, Jtaftty and inconsiderate legislation.

BATTIST.
The Sabbath School of tho Memorial Baptist
Church, northeast cornor Broad and Master
streets, celebrated their first jubilee meeting on
Thursday evening la' t. The chapel was taste
fully decorated. Over the pulpit, suspended
from an arch, was nn elegant bell of the choicest
flowers. The school, as well ns the church, Is,
in the most flourishing condition. Rev. P. S'
Ilcnson, I). D., is tho pastor.
Kev. Moses Rowley, Secretary of the Wis
consin Baptist Missionary Society, furnishes tho
Standard with tho following figures: "At the
meeting of the society, nt Ma.o Manle, May 25,
the condensed report of their missionaries ex
hibited the following as their first quarter's
labor, equal to one missionary ono year and
nine weeks: 150 sermons In thirty churches; 2
councils and 05 other meetings attended; 494
families religiously visited; 0 times ordinance of
Lord's Supper administered; 1 new church and
several Sabbath Schools organized; $255recclvod
into the treasury, and over $400 pledged; 5279
miles travelled In performing these labors. Tho
eocicty was organized in December last, and
commissioned Its thee first missionaries with
out a dollar in Its treasury."
We cut the following paragraph from the
New York Tribune of last Tuesday morning. It
is one of the signs of the times, and indicates
an enterprise und vigor which, we doubt not,
will yield a large and beneficent result:
"The American Baptist Home Mission Society re
ceived, some time since, a promise from the orlioers
of the I'nlon Pacific Hallway of lands on which to
locate missions on the line of tne road. In pursu
ance of that Hrratipemrnt, a committee of the Home
Mission Society, consisting of the Kev. Dr. K. K. I..
Taylor, ami Kev. Dr. J. I Ruckus, Corresponding
Secretaries of the Hoard; the Rev. VVayland llovt,
of Brooklyn, a member of the Board, ami the Kev.
Dr. A. P. Mason, of Boston, Mass., the District Sec
retary of New England, will start this
evening for Chicago, where they will take
the I'nion Pacific Ratloiul for California.
They will Jhe accompanied by several friends,
three ladies being In the party. Thpy propose to
select sites along the line of the road for the estab
lishment of missions, the lots selected by them to
be given by the management of the roads, both on
the Union and the Central Pacific lines. The party
will stop at Virginia Cltv, Carson, Denver, Central
City, and Nevada City, and possibly at other places
on the route, and attend to mission Interests. On
their arrival In San Francisco, the committee pro
pose to visit the Important cities and towns In
California ami Oregon, on the Paoltle coast. They
expect to be gone between three and Tour months.
CONGREGATIONAL.
Rev. Samuel Nott, who, at one time, for
twenty years was pastor of the church iuWure
ham, Conn., died on the 1st at the residence of his
son in Hartford, at the age of eighty-one. lie
graduated at Union College in 1808,'and was a
member of the second "class at the Andovcr
Theological Seminary (.1810); wns ordained 0th
of February, 1812, and went out with Gordon
Hall, Adonlram Judson, Samuel Newell, and
Luther Rice, as tho first company of missiona
ries sent out by' the American Board. Ho was
classmate at Andovcr with Drs. Gardiner. Spring
and R. S. Storrs.
Rev. M. Gerould, after a ministry of more
than forty years lu Lnngdon, has resigned on
account of the failure of his eyes.
A new church of eighty-one members,
called the Pilgrim Church, was organized in
Providence, June 2.
, Mr. 8. V. MeDullle was ordaiued at Craw
fordsville, Iowa, May 25.
A church of nineteen members has just been
formed at Cheyenne, on the Pacitic Railroad,
under the auspices of tho Homo Missionary So
ciety. Cheyenne is an important point. It has
become the capital of Wyoming, has the rail
road shops of a division, has the Denver Branch,
fort kus8cii, witn lZW) soldiers, and 5000 popu
lation. What gives nn appearance of fictitious
strength to Roman Catholics is tho fact that
they mass Into a single church what would
make three or four Protestant congregations.
Two Congregational churches lu South Wey
mouth, Mass one of them 150 and tho other
250 years old propose to gain this advantage by
uniting and building a new church. They are
of about eijual strength, and will have a con
solidated membership of 250. A fine large edi
fice will be a bond of union between them.
Independent.
EPISCOPAL.
The parish of thcIIoly Trinity, in New York
has just closed its fifth year. It supports, says
the Protest an t Churchman, five mission chapels
and Sunday Schools, a Dispensary for the sick,
several beds in St. Luke's Hospital and Home
for the incurables, mothers' meetings, sewing
schools, employment societies, and other con
nected charities. There are more than 1300
teachers and scholars connected with the Sun
day School departmcet, whose missionary con
tributions tor the past live years have amounted
to $8577. The church school numbers about
400 children and teachers. In money, during
this period, (248,401 have been contributed.
On the -Situ ult. the Zion Church was con
secrated in Fonda, N. Y., by Bishop Doaue.
An extensive religious interest, under Epis
copal influence, amounting to quite a revival,
is reported in the Lexington (Va.1 Military
Institute.
The report of the committee of the Epis
copal Convention of Virgiula on the subject of
innovations is very severe against all High
Church dogmas and practices.
The Episcopal Convention of Connecticut
met last week. A plan of life Insurance was
laid before the convention, by which the parish
should by an annual payment of $30 insure the
rector s nie lor fwoo. liisuop imams . con

The Rhode Island Episcopal Convention
voted to pay the fees of the counsel which pro
secuted Kev. J. r. uuDDard, niscnurcn not being
required to contribute. The motion to pay Mr.
Hubbard's counsel was defeated.
The last suit against the Trinity Church cor
poration is based on the ground that it has for
feited its rights to its funds, because it has ceased
to be "Protestant Episcopal." Its rector having
Joined Dr. Ewer In calling Protcstautism o fail
ure; and also because tho corporation will give
no account of its funds, and perverts them to the
destruction of morals by leasing its property to
those who keep houses of ill-fame.

object of draw in y off from tlutlr mii-mian tlm
radical Episcopalians who meet this month In
convention at Chicago, and who are moving for
a revision of the Prayer-book. " They are thus
informed that they cannot have any sympathy
or aid even from the most advanced" of their
bishops.
CATHOLIC.
A Manchester (N. II.) clergyman lately
stated that the 7000 Catholics of that city have
for three years raised more money for religious
purposes than tho 20,000 Protestants; that their
church property was worth twice as much as
that of the Protestants, and their church attend
ance as large as theirs.
In a recent olllclal report of tho Greek
Church of Russia, itwh stated that durlnB 1SU7
