The IJov. I>r. S. S.

F.dwnrd Robinson, lt. S. Storm. Vcrmilve, Baring and other clergymen at high char? acter, to resfor?

Tho members of the eoiniiuttec spent three years on their work, meeting evory week. They compared the fust three issues of 1011, 101 and 1(11.1. I believe rinding error? in them all. typo? graphical and others. They corrected them all. and corrected the headings and titles Then-port was accepted ami the common eiliiioiis were corrected, stereotyped, and issu <l in two forms, lame and small oetavo. At n rubscqnent anntial uioet Ing a party lad by Dr. Bmckenndge, of Keiitncky, objected to tho further use of tho corrected oopy,aad Ineiotod ihat the society should tro buck to the confessedly corrupted copy in common use. The rsaeiaty yielded to the presenrc brought upon it agalaal th 'earnest protest of Dr. i.obiiisoii aad Dr. Stone," Dr.Conaaf farther stated that he tbenghf the Board had been ererawed by Dr. Broekenrtdge, From a prominent elargyaiaa, one of the orfrrlnal committee appointed toBtako tho correclions, the folloaing additieaal fact s were laaraad: The committee of atren, including beaidee those mentioned above.

Some of t he chapter headings were change 1 beeani ' they \vi re clumsy, s.-nie b -cause they were incom? plete, some because they contained comment*, and seasebeeenaethey nan nntnnv The principle of the new hftadlngl was simply to make tln in an index expressed in tho words of the text ilself.

Port r, of WIlllOBBlhnil. in a sermon delivered lust Sunday commented as follows on tho remarks of Mr. Beeebei: " I was sorry to learn thai one of the foremost ministers of America, misled l>y one of his ever active impulses, had heen guilty of tho folly of at? tacking tin- Ameriean Bible Society and the version of the Bible which it publishes. It is well knov, n tn every scholar t hat some word* in t be version now In use have heroine obsolete, and there are a few in.-fanooa in which the changes of lansn.ige require revision. But Io afllrm that the Bible Society pob bakee a text which il knows Io be false, is utter ar ngaaceand four. I nepeet the genius of the di Unguis bed gentleman who made tneebaran. but an man In ImertOO has ever llisaot Idll him of being a technical M-imlar. m-qualified to pronounce In any mutter involving exaet learning. But what is worse la his ind'ctment of tho American Bible Society, an inatitution which, with tbo British and Prussian Bible bVmietiee. bee supplied the beat lieu world arith oopiea of tin- sacred Scrip tnres in nearly two hundred dialects. I do not like to say anything in condemnation of a br-.t her min? ister who has acquired a worthy fame: but when any man so f ir forgets himself as to make an effort to impair the oommon faith in the common ver? sion of the sailed Scriptures, he is gniliv of u crime fat which no lean can make atouement. Still wo shall hope that in his usual way. Mr. I'.eecher will obenan his mind in a week and Yeryeoon contradict himself on this point as he has often done on others." Dr. Porter in aonbeeanaat oonveraatioa ?toted that the optmoltion to the altered edition had been hy the < ?hl Sc ho il Preebyterlane, led by Dr. Plum? mer, and was fonnded on the theory thai the oft.ee of the Bible Society naaainiply topnbliah the Bible a.-they fonnd if, and not to amomt or alter it.
