THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PJIL IDELt'ill A, SATUIIDai', aPRIL 8, 1871.
COMMON tCATlD. M. Clement' C fcureh The Conclunlon. To the Editor of The E renin? Telegraph. It being upw established that the whole con troversy ir,Unst 8t. Clement's Church is carried on by "outsider," "bmybodies la other men's matters," the question recurs at once, Did not this class of persons originate it? Did they not put the first whisperings into the ears of the Testry, which made them imagine horrors con cerning their church and her forms of worship? Did not "outsiders" bring on the disputes in the vestry, and lead them to agitate matters they had no business to discuss at all? Indeed, it seems so. "Father! fonrlve them, for thev Know not what they do, . .. ) In answering one of these "outsiders." "A Tarlshioner" fell into the use of a certain theatri cal word, which so offended "An Outsider" that "A Parishioner" stopped to bate his breath and get on the right path again, having lost it. as he now finds, at that part of "An Outsider's" com- munlcation announcing "more novelties" In preparation at St. Clement's Church. There not only theatrical word, but also theatrical character passed before "A Parishioner's" mind, and he saw or imagined that he saw ("Iago," "Mephlstopbeles," "Paul Pry," "Amlnl 3ab 81eek," it id omne genu. See now outside communications corrupt church manners ! Now if "A Parishioner" has sinned in this respect, he confesses It. Shall he not have absolution ? Can not "An Outsider" grant it ? But now to Mr. "Outsider's" questions. He asserts that he Is not In the vestry, but he wishes be were; and then wants to know if "A Parish ioner" candy as much; to which let him be answered res! as to the assertion, and no! as to the wish. To let him be answered no to his questions as to tbc influences which called forth "A Parishioner's" communications, and whether they are electioneering documents or not. Let us hope that the defense of St. Clement's Church will not always be called a "political dodge," as Mr. "Outsider" calls it. The statement that there bas been "a radical change in some of the doctrines taught," "An Outsider" said was "In tent ion illy omitted" in his first communication. But It being necessary to keep tin the fusillade on that part of the line. rtae Introduces it in his last paper, prefixing, it, fno doubt, for the ease of his own conscience, with the exculpatory phraso, "tt is alleged. But who alleges it? "Outsiders ?" This one we are dealing with now has no ''personal knowledge of the peculiar teaching of the reverend gentlemen," but be has seen "extravagances enacted in the chancel," which extravagances, as he terms them, led him to join in the tirade against the doctrines taught. Now does be not know that the doctrines taught are thopc, and only those, enunciated in the "Book of Common Prayer;" and that nothing which Is not in that book' or which is In conllict with it is taught at St. Element's? Is "An Outsider" one of thwe who want to revise tlie Prayer Look, and drop certain passages out of it ? An swer quick ! "A PariiOiiouer" Is not a member of "The Guild of the Holy Cross." and knows very little of that association; but be will tell what be has heard of it. It in an association of young men rto assist the Church (not St. Clement's alone") In doing the Church's work. Thev do the dea cons' work in the Church In America, for she bas no deacons to do it. Thev irlve no soma of ytheir time, which they might else devote to I amusement, in looking aloDg the highways and byways to and the poor and relieve their wants, ana to bring tnem ana au other "outsiders Into the Church. In pursuing their labors their time is so completely occupied that they have no op portunity to decry upon others laboring in a diflerent field, or meddle in other peoples dls- Eutes. Can "An Outsider" "say as much of imself?" It did not need the assurance of "An Out sider" that he did not mean to compliment "A Parishioner" in his first letter to make that fact certain and plain. But it will require some thing more than his stout denial to get rid of "A Parishiouer's" assertion that "An Outsider" attempted to justify the publication of the vestry's minutes, when be said that they pub lished them to defend themselves against a whole collocation of words, taken bodily out of "A Parishioner's" communication, which was pub lished ten days after the vestry's pamphlet! But let the public decide this question for them selves. Simple assertions and denials will con vince no f reeh minds. "An Outsider" makes a very proper correc tion of the mistake which made "A Parishioner" claim an Increase of pew rents in Jive years. Such a claim would be no glorification of the reverend gentlemen who have had charge of St. Clement's Church for the past two years only. During this time the Increase is claimed, and "An Outsider" cannot belittle it by saying that it is not material. It is some increase, which "A Parlobioner" claims; and he now says that it is more than double. Can "An Outsider gainsay it? But this "outsider' if he is not an insider, bas been among the insiders, aud he writes as if inspired from the inside, aud exceeds the ex pectations of "A Parishioner" when he aimits that 1 15 000 of the debt has been cancelled, aud then says it may be $20,000! "Saul was among the proplms, but be was not a prophet." Now know, Mr. "Outsider," that ibis debt was not paid under a compromise at 'fifty cents on the dollar." but it was paid by voluntary contribu tions in cash and claims; and that it was done not "by au arraugement long since made by the mueb-abuf-ed vestry" alone, but by them and the "reverend gentlemen" in charge of the Lchurch and the "much-abused" Oulld. Was any- S.kt.M I .1.1. Irtn J . J L t 1 luiu ui mm nniu cvci iiuuq ucimo kueBo reve rend gentlemen took charge of the church? Was not the debt iucreasing then rather than decreasing ? Finally, we come to "An Outsider's" bold and impious assertion that the increase of the com municants from one hundred and twenty to three hundred and fifty "is by no means a cause for rejolcit'g." So it comes down at last to this ! Is any comment needed ? Let no one ever ad vocate prayers for the dead, while prayers for the living Lsvo bad so little effect upon "An Outsider." The Church milllaid has work before ber which ill engage the whole time of the ministry; the Church triumphant can have none of it. St. Ciemcut's Church being la full commu nion with tbe "Protestant Episcopal Cauren. In the United States of America," the natural lu uiry is, where are its traducers r where 1 "An Outsider?" Is be lu the same communion? Would he be delivered from "evil and mischief;" "bllndnees ot heart;" "pride, viiuarlory, and bypocrisv;" "euvv, hatred, and malice, and all iincbarltableness; "the deceits of the world, the ilesh. aud the Devil;" sedition, privy con spiracy, at d rebellion;" "and contempt of God's Word and commandment;" 1 to rule and govern Ills holv Church universal lu ttie right way;' 'tn llluinieate all bishops, prieala, aud deacons with truo knowledge and understanding of His Wnnl- and that, both br their preaching and lictntr. tticv mav set it forth, and show it accord inula ;" lW&'Le sincerely beseech the Lord "to bless ui.d keep all His people;" "for a heart ff J. :!., .... i i-tiA afmi Ilia iitiii.inniiinLfl in f V.lnlW.ir tl, iilnlh. cancerum" fhe witnesses; I III IIIIILTIIIJ r live lit i - 1 f7i- i - f In lifiar mapLlv 1 f 1 A Wnril " "to brine Into the wav of truth all such have erred and are deceived;" "to have all men:" "to foiclvo 1113 enemies, KTup.i ntors. and Blunderers, and to turn their rirrt:' "to forrfve us all our sins, negligence, unit lunorantes : and to euIuo us with tbe grace of His Hclv Spirit to amend our wa s according ml I la Hl.1v Word?" If not Kt bhii come to St. Clement's, for all thete ravers aud suppli intlmiB are fcaid there. Since tbe above was written tia communica tion of "A Cburchmau" bas appeared.

Wt this "Churchman" says about pri vate voluntary confessions is already answered in Dr. Uatterson's pamphlet, and the answer need not be epitomized here. But the assertion that the Church "makes no provision for it" Is not the truth. 8be does in the Book of Common Prayer invi tation to commune that part of it which is not read La all churches or by all "churchmen." There is no confessional established in St. ele ment's Church, although ber iraducers insinuate that there Is, and would have the public believe it; but they dare not assert it as a fu t. l'rayers for the dead are not rea l at St. CI?' merit's, and never have been; the "praver for the whole state of Christ's Church miltuit" la. Tie "Guild of the Holy Cross" is composed of yourg men well knewn in this city, who.e char acter for honesty and sincerity is far superior to and whoee hatred of dishonesty and deception is deeper tbaa any self-named "Churchman, whose free use of these latter terms shows that bis ears mutt be very familiar with them. The "Guild" draws as little inspiration from Italy (why not use the bold word "Rome" at once?) as "A Churchman" draws from Heaven. There is just as wide a chasm between them. No book is used at St. Clement's, nor is the use of any book in culcated there, which is published without its author's name or the house which published it. tt. Clement's clergy never disobey any lawful commands of their Bishop. Where was there ever such a back-door approach a this pre tended condemnation without pre.emment, de fense, or trial, which ome "churchmen" are tn ing to fix upon ber ? lime and space prevent a full review ot "A Churchman's" communication. To do it, how ever, would be mere repetition of the church s fide of this Question already published In Iiib Evkmno Telrorai'H. It is sulllcicnt to meet his general slanders with flat denials, ncl tV.en nail (him to tbe counter as a bogm "church man;'' one who does not care a snap of bis fiDger for bis Apostolic succession, and who believes just as much of the Prayer Book as is easy, and condemns those who believe it all and live up to it. And now, Mr. Editor, in closing ttls corre spondence, there can be no more fitting way to do it than by tbe expression of hearty and sin cere thanks for the many favors vou have granted to A Pari.hhionek. inE CRITTENDEN Til AO ED T. Continuation of the Trial In 8an Fran. cUco Tcwt Imony of tlie "Wife of the l)c- ci-annl ul Other Wit uvhHt'H. Sam Francisco. March 30. The Court re sumed its elltlug at 10 o'clock yesterday morn ing, the attendance of members of too bar quite filling the room, aud the lobby aud hallway being crowded with other spectators. Airs. Fair had entered tbe court room fifteen tniuutcs before, supported by Under Sheriff Knox, and accompanied by her mother. She was very pale, and her eyes expres-ed fatigue aud ex haustion. Soon after taking her seat she leaned over on her mother's breast and wept silently for a time, seeming to fiud relief lu tears. This pitiful picture of tbe miserable woman's unhap pinecs was unrelieved, aj on the previous days of the trial, ty the presence of her beautiful child. Mr. Vosburg testified I am au upholsterer at No. 14 Third streei; I kuew Mr. A. P. Critten den; know Mrs. Fuir; she visited my store often, several times to buy goods; I had been furnishing Mr. Crittenden's house shortly be fore tils death; I also furnished eoiue rooms for Mrs. Fair juet before that; at the time I was furnishing Mr. Crittenden's house the last time 1 saw her she paid me some money aud spoke about it; she asked me if I was furnishing a house for Mr. Crittenden; I did not deny it, be cause she seemed to know all about it; she said that Mr. Ciitteudeu had promised thai Mrs. Crittenden should not return to the State, and that if she did "one of us three will have to die," meaning by "us three" herself, Mr. Crittenden and Mrs. Crittenden: that was on the 5th of October: I tried to argue with her and spoke against ber resolution, as Mr. Crit tenden was a great friend of mine; she was very excited at that time, and kept repeating, "He bas ruined me and my child; at the same time her attorney called there and wanted me to go as a witness in ber divorce case; be wanted some one to prove ber residence In the State; I went aud testified before the Commissioner, and she relumed and paid some money on ber fa r- nllure bill; I am sure of the date; I refreshed my ruird by my books tbls morning; I saw the dale; she paid me tl.OU; at tbe time of the conversa tion I did not look nt it in a very serious way; think I advised ber not to do anything of the kind; that be was a good sort of man; she an swered that I did not know all; that be bad ruined ber and ber child. The conversation occupied ten or fifteen minutes; I called on ber to collect money, she dll not admonish me to keep secret what she hud said; I told Mr. Crittenden what she said tbe day before; Mr. Crittenden arrived at my store; ne was there on business; I told him: "Air. urutenuen, are you quite sure mere wm be no trouble about your lady coming back?" He said, "What do you mean?" I said, "Mrs. Fair says there win ne trouble n your laay comes back;" be replied, "Oh, that Is ail right;" that is all be said; this was the morning of the day before tbe shooting. I told no one else of it; itoiaouaize uope ana Airs, cnuenaen ot u since the shooting to Mr. Cope in the street car and to Mrs. Crittenden at ber residence, where I bad some work to do; told Judge Cope before Mrs. Crittenden did; I was not called or examined as a witness before the Coroner s jury; told Mrs. Crittenden within a month after the death ana oeiore tne inquest; i may nave told it to others; did not tell it to Mr. Byrne or Mr. Campbell; I told it to some one who came to my store, about two or tbrde weeks ago; he was tent by Mr. Byrne, be said; he asked me what 1 knew of it, aud I told him; don't remem ber tteat 1 told Judge Cope that I bad told Mr. Crittenden of the remark; did not tell tbe niaa Mr. Byrne sent; at the time she (Mrs. Fair) talked about it she was excited, aud be cause more aud more so as she talked; at the time Mr. Crittenden said be would pay fur the carpet be gave us a reusou that Mrs. Fair would Le ciampea lor room unless sue look tue tourtu one: he did not say he was to occupy It hiinsnlf. Mrs. Crlttendu, wife of the deceased, was next examined. Sbe came forward leauiug upon tbe aim of one of ber. sons, aud was auired lu dcepmournlng. Upon taking herseat in tuecaair upon the witness staud she raised her veil aud turned a steaay iook, wnu uer vic.ti, uit tjco, upon Judge Campbell, wheu be commoiicid his motions. She uavn ber testimony clearly and to the point, wnu greai jtubcuco ui luiuu, u-telliEf-nce. and spirit, quickly reseutlug by word or look auy question tuat e eeuieu to ucr uuuc ffspurv. and sometimes smiting in a ua,i con- tcinmiintiB manner at tne repeated uuesiiou ' , , , l-'.vciv one In court was surprised at the cool- iifhs and self-control she displayed. Sno testl fled as follows: I am the widow or Alexander P. Crittenden; I was not quite thlrty-thtee years bis wife; I was on board tne steamer El CapUan on the afternoon of tti3 HI of November, when my husband was shot; 1 arrived from tbe East upon the 4tu no, tuo Cd ol November, aud met my husband oa tbe wharf; we weLt together on board tue steamer; walked np the steps on the left hand side; we erosi-ed to tee whether the seat usually occupied was VDJPtv aealnet tbe wheelliouc; we went round abere and took our seats my husband inv daughter, my Utile daughter, and my sou; I asked t urner to go iuu me cauiu ana uriug om Mr, l'bvthlan: 1 was on my husband s rlirbt band, silling neit the cablnj Mrs. Phythlan was on bis left; my daughter at on the seat on the nter side ot the boat; my son was somo.vheie near; I do't exactly know where; after we bad taken our teats 1 naturally looked around to see t,n were there, having just arrive! trom the Eat; I saw sitting on my right a womau who, us iQr .a 1 nn remember, had a water-proof cloak on; ber face was covered with something; I ob ...r.pH ,r lcause I thought it a strange dress lor & britcht. euubblny afternoon; I said nothlug it, tim tn her. but turned away iroui ner to t,.,t.i.nt i,nd conversed with him for a few n, ia-t act of bis life was to dis play the usual gentlemanly courtesy be showed to every oi.e; be said to Mrs. Pbythlan:- 'xi-zt-m allow me to take yur UaveUing- bag;" by this be bad both bis Lauds occupied; he said two nc-three things tbat I do no remem ber; I bad turned to him and put inyartn through bis; it was about five minutes after we came on board when a !fash and report came In try face; I looked up, of course, to see who had fired the shot, and saw a-woman; I did not see her face, but I saw tbat it was the same fimire that I h 1 observed before; my husband said, "I am shot;" at least I am told he said so, hut I did not bear bim; I turned toward him; be got np, walked two or three paces steadily and then began to stsirger with my arms upon him; he sat down upon tbe seat, and I then saw tbat he wai terri bly Injured; when be fell to tbe deck I sat down beside him and held his bead: my son came up and 1 said to him, "Your father is shot," and told bim who had done it; I knew these threats bad been made years before; I stayed with my husband until the boat arrived here, and then went with bim in tbe wagon which took bim to bis own bouse;. I suppose that is all tbat Is necessary. To Judge Campbell Immediately after the shooting I saw nothing of the pistol; then the Captain-brought it to me and showed it to tne; I last saw tbe person that fired tbe shot when I looked up after it had beeu fired; I turne4 to my husband then and didu't see where she went; 1 first heard the defendant say anything of tbe nature of threats toward my husband when she came to tbe bouse, about the last of October or first of November, 18li!, at about 11 o'clock at night; my son Parker was in bed asleep; I wa rot: my son Howard bad not come lu; my b'is band had been borne a few minutes; a tarwards I beard Howard unlock the door; my husbind went to the head of the stairs, and sa w a woman trying to come into the house; he said, ''Don't let ber come into tbe bouse;" my vn was oa crutches at the time: I believe he bowed ber out; my husband went part of the wav down stairs: she insisted upon seeing Crit tenden; he refused to see her; I offered to go down myself, but be would not allow me; sho insisted tbat he should go w ith her: he said, "I will not, it will only be tbe same thing over and over again;" I can't say all she said; she said something else; Mr. Crittenden replied, "I am tired and sick of It; I am utterly disgusted; you have unsexed yourself, you and your moiher both;"' be then told me to wake up mv sou and send bim for a policeman; she said, "If you do there will be bloodshed;" my son came out, and my husband tent bim for a policeman; after a w hile I heard ber and my oldest son in conver sation; heard them go down the steps together and go away; can't say bow far they went and bnve not beard since; that was the only occa sion upon wbicb I heard her make threats against my husband; I saw bnt little of her. Judge Campbell How far were you from tbe person who fired tbe shot on the boat? Mrs. Crittenden requested her son, who was sitting near ber, to rise, and then placed bim about two feet from ber, saying that tatt wa about the relative position; my dress was burned; tbe shot passed across me. Mr. Cook Did Mr. Crittenden remain in his rooms while you were visiting Virginia City? W itnees I don't think you have any right to aEk that question. (Turning to the Court) Ought I to answer that question? The Court advised her to do 60, and she resumed Well, be did remain at bis rooms while I stayed at my daughter's; I have never been to Virginia since; it was in October or November that Mrs. Fair came to my residence; for the two or three weeks ptcvious to tbat night my husband had been in town, nnd bad come home regularly every night; Mr. Crittenden had been in tue house ten or fif teen minutes when Mrs. Fair knocked at the door; about the same time as she came I heard How aid come in the door; Mr. Crittenden was in my room when I heard Mrs. Fair at the door; he bad put the parlor lights out when be came in; I did not go down stairs to meet bim: it was about SO minutes afterwards that I beard Howard come in; the first tbirg I heard was bis unlocking of tbe door; then 1 beard my busbaud say, "Don't let ber come in;" I was in the upstairs passage; be w as at tbc bead of tbe stairs; my busbaud might Lave gone to tbe bead of the stiirs be cause be fancied she might have followed bim borne; perhaps be beard tl.e bell ring; Howard bad a night key and opened tbe door with it; I could bear the woman's voice at the door, but could not bear what was said when she first came; heard her say afterwards that she wanted my busbaud to go borne with her; don't know lvbtm she addressed; said she wanted him to walk a little way with ber; all that passed was said In about ten minutes; ho said he would not go with ber; he was standing then ou tbe slaii case. What did she do uext? She only reiterated what she had said; I heard all my husband said; dou't know whether I beard all be said; be stood on the stairs and talked five, ten, fifteen minutes perhaps, certainly not tnore than fifteen minutes; what followed iu order of course I can t give you; it was after the conveisatlon I have related tbat tbe policeman was talked about after she had refused to leaye the house; Mr. Crittenden went down nearly to ti e bottom of tbe stairs; did not go down into tbc ball: I have already told you what he said at tbe bottom ef the stairs; Howard started with ber, but did not, I think, go borne with ber; Parker at the time ot the conversation on the (lairs was in bed; can't tell who called him; saw bim go down; don t recollect whether It was when my busbaud was talking; Parker went for a policeman; I don't recollect at what point of tl e conversation he went. Mr. Cook asked a good many questions upon tbe same points, eliciting replies blmilar to the above. Judge Campbell arose and said that the con duct of the counsel on tbe other side was "out- rnireous and disgraceful," iu prcsslug the wit ness to answer the same questions over and over again. Mr. uook replied tnat tne gentleman was ex ceeding bis privileges in applying the word "disgraceful to the- conduct of auy member ot tbe bar. He also denouueed "clap-trap" speeches, intended only to influence the jury. Tbe spectators applauded Mr Cook's words, and tbe Court instructed the Deputy Sheriff to arrest any one who sbouid apiaua again, it also Informed Mr. Cook that the witness bad already answered bis questions. The session ot tne court uere terminated, ana tbe jury were given into the charge of the De puty bheriff, as usual. t owards tne close or tne auernoon session, Mrs. Fair's face wore a very distressed look. About tbe time of tbe adjournment she seemed to become faint, and, leaning back in her chair, laid ber bands before her, turned her bead ou oue side, and let tbe tears flow down ber cheeks. Her mother and Dr. lrak attended to ber. aud she was quickly conveyed to the carriage in walling. A large number ot persons stood in tbe passage and at tbe door to catch a glimpse of ber face.
