THE DAILY IsvENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14, 1871. CITY I Zl 1TBLL 1 U 13 It C B, AMERICAN ASP IXTEKAT105iX, Thi Christian Moral Science Association 0Mtltaent Congress Frist Day's Fra eeettvg. About ve years ago a proposal m made to form an association for the combined purpose of delntng and promoting the unity of the Charon of Christ; of creating and applying a sclenoe of Christian Morals; of developing and systematizing the benefi cent resources and agencies of the Kingdom of Christ ; and of extending and hastening the triumphs of the Gospel throughout the world. In England and Germany evidence has been fur nished of the soundness of this expectation by the suffrage and adhesion of many of the best minds in Bnrope. Kev. Dr. Cather,, who la the originator and General Secretary of the English Provincial Coun cil, has been, at the Instance of many Americans and with the concurrence of his brethren at home, making during the past winter a successful effort lu the United States and Canada to form on the aoove basil a Provincial Council. It already numbers three hundred members. The first Constituent Congress began In this city tills morning In Common Council chamber, fifteen members being present. Kev. Dr. Newton moved that his Honor Mayor Fox take the chair, which was agreed to. After singing a hymn a portion of the Scriptures was read by Kev. Alexander Reed, of the Ceutral Presbyterian Church. Prayer was offered by Rev. Ueoige Cumrolngs. Ms Honor the Mayor then said: I d Mire to make my acknowledgment! i for the i honor yon have done in invit ing me to open and Kiide the pro ceedinga of the convention. It ia an occasion that eaila for o-r devont thaakxeiving to the great (ether of na all for Hia mercy and blessinga tons as a nation and as citi ena,and Hia kindly vimUtion to na as members of an aaaembly having in view the highest style of Christian brotherhood, and it is to me a special pleasure to give you a hearty and cordial welooiue to Philadelphia, and I pro mise yeu the warmest kind of hospitality at toe hands of its oitizens whilst yon continue with ns. It seems to ma not oat of place that I abould express t he grat ification we bave in your holding the first Constituent Uoagress of the Christian Moral Science Association in this oitv, and I hope that that sweet spirit of charity and liberality may mark all its doings, and that its fruits may resolve them selves iato bleoaings to ns all ; and let me also add that we expect so to contribute;!- the comfortind pleasure of the members that whin they shall leave for their re spective homes they will oarry away with them the most agreeable and lively recollections of Philadelphia and ita people. Again yen have my thanks. Kev. Dr. Campbell delivered the Inaugural ad dress. He said the greatest thank-ottering which we can render to God ia to follow the three great principle of the association. All we have and all we are are the gifts of Ood. In answer to Ills com mand we will give all the tithes which He demands. The first is Christian stewardship, and God has a right to the tenth of our Income. We are boond to disseminate these views. Wegshould never Hag in our efforts, but should speak with the same warmth of this principle. Our success la just as certain as we live. We are on the side of the Divine Master, who shall conquer selfishness. We should give a tithe of onr yearly Incomes to the service of the Lord. All nations then wonld have an overflowing Church and treasury. The second great principle Is very clear to our hearts. It ia no matter to me to what branch of the Church a brother belongs. The whole creed of the society regarding Christian fellowship Is that there are other sheep which are not of my fold. The third principle la simple obedience to the teachings of Jesus Christ. If we live npon these principles men who see as shall feel the power of these truths. There is no man who will deny reli gion to be true if we go forth with these principles engraven on our hearts, and show their spirit to all the world. We must be educated regarding charity before we give, and we mast practise the lesson Which we bave learned. Charity means love. Kev. Dr. Newton offered tne following resolution, which was seconded by Rev. Dr. Keed, of this city, and Rev. Dr. Hollidav, of Indianapolis, In Bhort ad dresses: Resolved. Tnat this meeting heartily tender Its thanks to the Kev. Dr. H. t. Campbell, D.D., l'resi. Bldent of Rutgers College, for the able and Interest ing address which he has just delivered, and that It be printed in the proceedings of the Congress. .Adopted. Rev. Dr. Newton was then appointed secretary and Rev. Dr. Norrls assistant secretary. Dev. Dr. Cather then read the names of the mem bers of the asBooiation, with their addresses and church relations. He said that three hundred mem bers had been enrolled, and that pledges had been given for four hundred more. He said the affairs of the association thus far had been very prosperous, and he was very thankful that he had met with such support In this country. Kev. Dr. Cather made a motion that a committee be appointed consisting of Dr. Read and Messrs. Duane and Klngley, to bring In their report to-morrow on the actual number of members. Agreed to. Rev. Dr. Newton moved that a committee be ap pointed to report on the subject of permanent offi cers of the convention, to answer to-morrow. The committee appointed consists or Rev. Dr. Newton, Kev. Mr. Hollfday, and Mr. Howard. Rev. Dr. Cather then made a statement of ac counts. He said that at the beginning of his tour be was continually spending money and receiving none. He said that all the expenses had been paid, and that he had not borrowed a farthing from any one. He said God had enabled the society to keep clear of debt thus far, and be was devoutly thankful therefor. I think about f 8000 have already been re ceived. Three-fifths of our members are clergymen, who have been present at our breakfasts. We have nearly $900 subscribed. Fifteen thousand dollars a year weuld be a nice amount to work upon, and I think there should be no trouble in getting this. If you aim at less than that it wen't work on a proper scale commensurate with our importance as a so ciety. I have bo actual bill to bring before this convention. Dr. Cather moved that a committee be appointed to examine the accounts, and also to bring in their report on the side of expenditure! well aa income. Agreed to. Kev. C. G.

It will be recollected that the Legislature, at the instance of the Inspectors of the Western Peniten tiary at Pittsburg, recently passed a law by which seven counties were taken from the Eastern and added to the Western district. It was also de cided that the prisoners from the added con nt leg which were In our penitentiary should be trans ferred to Pittsburg. Accordingly, on the passage of the act It was fouud that we had IT convicts who belonged to the Western district, and arrangements were made for the transfer. It was determined that the transfer of the oon vlcts should take place last night, and accordingly one of the cars of the Western Pad do Express Train, which left the depot of the Pennsylvania Railroad at Thirty-first and Market streets at 9 45 last evening, contained a most delectable group of passengers, not often seen together in a respectable railroad car. About 6 o'clock last evening the cells of the priso ners who were to be removed were entered by the keepers, and the convicts were gathered together In the hall of the Penitentiary. They were then In formed of the law passed by the Legislature alluded to above, and cold that they would be taken to Pitts burg that night. The first thing done was to strip the men of their prison garb, and furnish them with the clothing worn by them when they first entered the Peniten tiary, which clothing Is invariably preserved and restored to the convicts when their terra of service has expired. This accomplished, heavy shackles were placed on the ankles of each convict consist ing of a stont iron ring on each leg, with a chain about eighteen inches in length fastened to each ring, and which made locomotion very slow and somewhat dlfllcult, and this precaution alone was a tolerably certain prevention of escape. To make assurance doubly sure, however, strong handcuffs were used, and the convicts were Joined together in couples by means of them. One pair of manacles or gyves, was sufficient for two convicts, i. ., the left wrist ofneman and the rignt wrist of another; one was placed in Iron cuffs and between the two cuffs a chain of six or eight Inches in length was placed, which brought their hands in tolerably close proximity. Thus secured, the prisoners, well attended, were placed 1b omnibuses aBd shipped on the 9-45 train. They are, no doubt, in Pittsburg by this time. UNIVERSITY OF PESSSYLYANIA.

KVEHIKO TSUOBArH Omotl W ed nedy, J una 14, ld7 L Notwithstanding the activity In speculative circles and the advance in the price ot stock, and other Investments, the money market is ex ceedingly dull, the general apathy in trade making It dimcut to employ the large balances on hand at the banks at anything; like remune rative rates. Money is freely offered both to brokers and business men at 4 per cent, subject to demand with good collateral securities and at5ttper cent, on commercial paper. Discount loans are more in favor with the banks than loans on call, because just now they are more profitable, but there is very little doing in this line.
