MIA Ti m BIRTHDAY.
A Grand Historical Representation
at Richmond.
A VICE-ROYAL COURT BALL.
* i
Krilliant Display of Centennial Costumes by
Lineal Desreudants.
Ricumomd, Vk, Vebt 22, 1878.
The birthday of George Washington was never celebrated
with more eclat and enthusiastic display than 11
ha* been in the capital of his native State on this anniversary,
occurring in the Centennial year of American
Independence.
The lineal descendants of the forefathers of
Firgtuia and the historical representation of
those who did so much to achievo the
liberty of our country are to night assembled in tho
Richmond Theatre in a presentation of a Vice Royal
Court hall at Williamsburg, o( tho time of Lord
Botetourt, one of the Colonial Governors of Virginia.
The Inhabitants of Richmond and. Indeed, of the wholo
State are interested and enthusiastic lu this grand
pageant, and the theatre doors ore thronged
with crowds seeking admission as early as
seven o'clock. The house was crammed Iroiu
pit to dome with the most brilliant assemblage ever
teeu in the building. Lespitu the inherent democratic
. spirit of the Virginians, there was a palpable inclination
on their part to boast that prido of heraldry not
exactly In keeping with the ideas of this
Centennial period. In the courtly colonial throng
was discovered many a . youthlul "blood"
and fair dame attired in tho costume of
over a century ago, who would willingly wear now the
itle ot "My lady," "My lord," "His grace," or "His
hiehriosa " The tineiiimr scene was brilliant and re.
splendent. Ttio theatre was never sc magnificently
decorated. The throne occupied by Lord Botetourt
wits draped strictly after the style of the colonial
period, and on all sides were suspended wreaths
and festoons, the flags of Great Britain and
Ireland. There was the Cross of 81. George,
the Union Jack, the lion and the unicorn, the
Thistle, the Shamrock and the ltose; while prommently
visible also was the flag of our own country. It
Is impossible to describe or even mention tho hislori
:al relics that wore displayed to-night, and they of
themselves furnish a sad uud serious source of regret
that Virginia's Legislature refused to appropriate a
paltry sutn toward the exhibition of her own resources
and historical reminiscences at the Nation's Centennial
Among the historical relics 1 would especially mention
A cup borne by Mrs. General Barry Beth. This cup
was carried by the mace bearers at the opening of the
Bouse of Burgesses, at Williamsburg, by all the
colonial Governors alter the reign of Charles tho Socond,
by whom the cup was presented to the colony
?f Virginia. It is a massive concern of solid silver
handsomely engraved, and liberally plated with gold.
It bears the coat of arms of old Knglsnd and tho old.
Virginia Colonial Coat of Arms. " Virtual el Lahore
florrnt Ces publicof. " To this Is ndded the coat of arms
which Charles II. gave to the State when he presented
this cup with the motto " ?n Vat Virginia gtiartam.1'
Truly snch a valuable relic as tbis should he preserved
for the Centennial. There were innumerable other
relics ef a century ago which it would be impossible to
describe fully.

period of Queen Anne, and wore a large pure diamond

in tho chair. Tho regular order ol proceedings was
resumed, and the discussion of tho committee's report
on question No. 'J, as published In yesterday's
Bkralo, was continued. The question was I
read by Dr. Dean, and tho speeches were
rather u display of friendly difference* of opinion on unimportant
details than expressions of positive dissent {
from the position taken by the committee, and, in con- j
elusion, the report whs adopted unanimously, though <
there was, alter a .seeming pleasant agreement had been .
reached, a somewhat livated talk in relation to the posi- j
tlon taken by the committee in favor of the substitution
ol tbo "withdrawal of watch, care and fellowship" lor i

Question No. It, us reported on bv the committee and ;
printed in the liutaLO, was then tukou up and the re
port considered. Then came a consideration of the
i other cases named in the other couuts In the ques- j
| lion, such as those who absented themselves like Til- (
ton, Mrs. MouHoti, Mrs. ltrudsbuw, Mr. Duncan, Mr. j
Dell, and others; what the proper course toward them j 1
should be? t I I
On this proposition there was considerable discus- I ,
siou, which was participated in hv Messrs. Sturtevant 1
llaion, Dean, Slorrs, Darker, Dorter, Abbott and
others. At length, however, a vote was reached, and j <
there were oulv eleven votes cast against the rule as- I ,
sumed and practiced thus (ar by Dlytnouth church, i
There was then read u communication Irotn Dlytnouth ! '
church, requesting that thero be given to Mr. Moulton i
an opportunity to present any new testimony he may j
Inive, whether verbal or docunfbtitary, anything which I
has not yet been made public; und the communication '
whs referred to the Business Committee. The Couuctl j i

Rev. Dr. Spauliltng on the report on the fourth j 1
question declared bitnsell strongly in lavor of Ply- <
mouth church's action, sud that, under the circum- ' ,
stances, no mutual council should lie called.
The communication of Mr. West vyas also considered ! '
and ruled out of order as not properly before the Coun- i
ctl for Its serious consideration. i .
Dr. Wolcott made a report in relation to question No. ,
5. censuring Mr. Van Colt. Tbc report on question I
No. 6 was then taken up. The committee hjv i
that Plymouth church has done all that was '
required, but seeing that tlio public and some j
oftbe churches seem to be not satisfied, the Coun- I
ctl should present twenty names und have a committee
ol three selected to urge upon Plymouth church to i
select live persons who shall try the case again.
President sturtevant said ihat he toil that Ply- I
mouth bad alreudy doue all that could be asked, and
i yol tbcre was no doubt that there was a widespread I
Iceltng that something had been left undone which j
; should buve been done. It wns twit that the committee I
should have examined Mr. Iiowcn and other witnesses I
who Iisd not been called, and also that lurtber otlorl j
should be made to set the question among those ol the :
j pust.
General Brinkcrhoff was opposed to any lurther in- j
vcHligaliou. Ue did not believe that any good could ,
j come of it A decision m lavor of Mr. Beccher j
i would, to be sure, be unsatisfactory to some, no odds
how thorough the investigation might bo.
Without coining to any definite conclusion, theCoun;

THE ACTION OP THE OHUBCH ON THJE PLYMOUTH
LETTER I*NDOB8ED OX THBEE-FOCBTHS OP
THE CLERGY.
[From tho Boston Journal, Feb. 21.]
As an impression exists In certain quarters that the i
action of tho churcn In Audover Seminary, embodied : ,
' iu the letter inviting Plymouth church to unite in <
j calling a council of investigation was hastily taken and
I not fairly representative ol the sentiments of tho (
i church, your readers will he interested in tho follow. '
log exact statement of the facts in the case:?
The church comprises twenty-eight resident male
members, woven of whom are professors in the seminary,
and also by vote acting pastors of tbe church.
Although the possibility of tbe action taken had been |
before the mind of some of tbese acting pastors for !
many days or even weeks before It was finally rc- |
solved upon, the first meotiug called expressly for con- j
sulfation on the subject was held ou Monday, the 7th I !
Inst., aud was attended by all tbe acting pastors ex- j
copi one. Five hours' discussion resulted iu the conviction?strong
on the part of live out of the six pres- j I
eat, the sixth hesitating?that it was their duty to | '
i bring the matter before the church. Accordingly the .
; next evening eight leading male meuibvrs of the ; '
! church wcro invited to meet the janitor* for prclimiu- | i
' nry conference on the subject. Ouly six of the pastors j
wore present; but the seventh sent a nolo expressing \ ,
himsell as so fur acquiescent as to refrain from opposi- j ,
been proseut at the preceding conference, road to the
meeting an elaborate argument against the measure
contemplated. Again lour hours aud a half were spent
I in discussing the subject, some of the lay members
opposing, some advocating, some hesitating. The
next day such theological students as are members of
the church had the mutter broached to them by three
ol the professional ucting pastors In a colloquial interview
occupying three hours. Alter the regular
I weekly church prayer meeting in the evening the sub1
Ject was formally brought before the church, every
rvsidout member having received previous notice that
It would lie introduced. After lurtber discussion, extending
through more than three hours, the question
whether the church would at onco proceed to invite
1'lyuiouth church to unite in convening the proposed
council wus put, nnd passed by a vole ot eighteen in
the affirmative to ouu in the negative Three members
present were undecided, cUietlv on account of doubt
rcspecuug the expediency of immediate actum. (If
, ttiu six absent male resident members, one?viz., ttie
protesting professional pastor above mentioned?was
heard from again In another extended written protest,
one (also ?n acting puslor) was non committal, ouu
was confined to his bed by Hovcru illness, u lourtb,
known to be In favor, was called out of town, and the
remaining two were understood to be opposed.
At an adjourned meeting 'held tlio next evening the
drall of u letter prepared by a duly appointed commitmillcc
was submitted, and. after discussion, adopted.
| At the opening of Ibis meeting oue ol the three members
who at the preceding meeting had been uude,
cided. requested that his voto might be recorded In Ibe l
alhrmalive, thus raiting the majority to nineteen j
' against one; wlnle ono ol the six residents absent from ,
; that meeltug, and reckoned above as opposed to the
measure, voted in favor of the letter.
I At n subsequent meeting certain alterations In the
letter wcro approved of aud a vote waa passed respect- j
! fng the mode in which ft should be signed and trans
UlltttO IU < IJUIUU.U VUUIIU.
Al each of these successive liu-ctlnys held after the j
I vote to lake acliou had been passed, recousideraliou
! would hare been lit order had any member loll disposed i
| lo uiove ik Mo lar from there being any sigu of such a I ,
disposition, one of the three at lint undecided cast his I
| vote tu favor of the movement, as has been said, while | 1
I another of the three accented au appointment upon the i
committee chosen lo prepare tho letter.
In a word, lltcu, the action of tho church wriva taken I
; at a meetiuj attended by more than Ihreo-lourtha of i
ail tho resident male member*, al tho close of diecua- i
| atous, occupying, In ail, more vliati lilleen hours?diacua

alive, two undecided Uf the uineleeu voting afllrma- I
lively all oicepl one aro graduates ol co|luge?, uud that
oue waa lor years a deacon in a neighboring church.
Kroin this detailed Inatory of the proceedings your i

clung the action as busty, irregular or uulairly representing
the optutou of the church.

EUFUS HATCH?TUB ACCUSED QIVXS FIPTT
THOUSAND DOLL AltS BAIL.
The Congressional Pacific Mail scandal, which at one 1
lime caused no little uneasiness in lh? halls of national 1
legislation in Washington, and which at the game time 1
was the origin of Hill King's uncontrollable desire to 1
lind a $10,000 bill in Canada, is again before the public,
invested with now lite und energy, and bidding lair
in the language of tho stage to have a long run. The
prime mover in the revivification ot this remarkable
case Is Mr. Kufus Hutch, who seeks this tune not Con
grvssiouai com mi lives Out a court or law wucrem to
develop the scleuco of tbo loldiy as alleged to Lave
boon practised ill Washington lu behalf of the Pacific
Mail subsidy. The Immediate object of Mr. Hatch's
wrath is the former i-nn PrauciBco agent ol the company,
Uichard U. Irwin, who wua arrested yesterday
U|K>n a warrant issued by Justice llixby, based upon an
allidavit by Mr. Hatch, charging him with the ernbez- i
clement of large sums of uiouuy. i
TXIK SUBSIDY FUND.
The readers of the Hkbxld will remember that Irwin
was summoned before a Congressional committee of
investigation during tho month of December, 1874, '
when ho testified to having received from tho President
of the 1'aciflc Mail Conipunv tho aggregate
sum of $750,000, which was to be expended
In procuring tho renewal of the gov- 1
eminent subsidy to the line. In the course of '
that investigation the names of certain members of 1
Congress, lobbyists and others were mentioned, and 1
they were believed to have received money to influence *
, - nool in Iho r.llnrl In urn tl.n anl.niHv Tl.n
money was drawn by Irwin lu checks, deposited in
various banks and subsequently paid out as occasion 1
,-ullcd for it. Thero were six checks drawn, ono for 1
;ho suu of $000,(XX), the other flvo being for $20,000 e
snch. At first they were made payable to A. B. Stockwell,
who was then President of the company, and doirered
to Vico President Bellows, who took them to
ilio 1 resident's room. In a lew mlnntes he returned
tud Informed tho Secretary, Mr. Johnson, C
lhat they wero to bo drawn to the f
arder of Irwin. This was accordingly done and the
original checks destroyed. Tho new check* were sub- "
sequontly paid to Irwin on his indorsement. Mr. 1
Johnson tcstitied that ho bad no knowledge of the 1
transactions Involving these amounts, and lhat there 1
were no outries in the hooks that any part of the x
$750,000 was returned. On tho 21st of February, 1872,
the Board of Directors ratified the resolution Issued at 1
n previous meeting, authorizing the President, in his I '
discretion, "to employ counsel and incur such other ' S
expenses as may ho necessary in connection with 1
measures for an uddllional subsidy now ponding before t
Congress." After this the money passed into Irwin's
bauds. 1
Tho recent examination of W. S. King, who was c
Postmaster of Congress ut tne time tho monev was
paid out or used by Jrwlu, gave additional llgbl on tbe f
mystery attending tbe disposition of the "Subsidy
Fuud," and it is believed that tbe arrest of Irwin oil J
Kulus Hatch's complaiut grew out of lliese develop- x
inoiiis. 1 fiis latest phase of the case will undoubtedly
lead to important results, ua It will give L
opportunity lor the Introduction of considerable I
new evidence, as it is a criminal prosecution. Whether c
tho revelations will eilect men hitherto unsuspected,
or whether the "subsidy money" will be
traced through the hands it passed can only lie dc- *
termined by the examination which begins on Thurs- )
day. At all events tho arrest or Irwiu culls new attention
to the old Pacific Mail scandal and will render It ''
Hie absorbing topic in Wall streol during the uoxt lew *
days. j
tltls warrant
was Issued on Monday afternoon and plneed In tho *
hands of Iielectivo Kldcr of the Central Office. Alter
some little diibcully tho detective succeeded in 4
learning tbe stopping place of Mr. Irwin, who only recently
returned from Europe. It was In an uptown n
r iftli avenue mansion. Yesterday tho officer, armed v
with the warrant, proceeded to the place. c
As he neared the house be saw the obiect
of his search coming down the stairs, accompanied V
liy an elderly gentleman. Approaching Mr. Irwin tho V
detective called him aside and exhibited his warrant

St. Vincent de Paul's church, Brooklyn, K. D. From I
what is related of hlni I should fully coucur in saying '
lhat he well deserves the title heroic to be attached to i
tits name. To save tho life of a fellow being Irotn tbe '
pitiless waves, and that, too, at the serious hazard of ,
losing his own, deserves no small amount of praise. '
He did it, it is true, as an act of love, but not that love ] '
winch is begotten ol earth, but that love which Is inllilled
in the hearts of the pure as the dew ol heuveu, '

POLITICAL NOTES.
1
The Carson City (Nevada) Appeal does not see why ^
lonkliug would not be a good Presidential candidate?
or the republican party.
Congressman llicster Clymer, of Pennsylvania, in a 1
peecti at Reading, on the 112th, expressed the opinion '
hat before the expiration of ten days tho democratic
numbers of Congress will come to u substantial agree- i
nenl on the flnancial question. This will be a good
ray of celebrating Washington's Uirthday.
Tho Horrisburg Patriot (dcrn.) states that "the repub I
leans of Montgomery county have lired tho lirst gun
or President by instructing thoir delegates to the
itato Convention to support Governor Uartranfl as
'ennsylvanla'g choice for that high ofllco. As Mont- i
;omery county is the home of His Excellonoy it will
tot do to treat this aciion as a mere empty compliment
in the part of his neighbors."
The Indianapolis Sua (greenback dem.) says that
Sovcrnor Hendricks is straining every nerve to securo
udge Downey tbe democratic nomination for Goverlor
and that tho Judge is a bard money man. Why 1
lot ? asks the Evunsville Journal (rep.) he had Mc- i
lonald elected to the United Slates Senate, and where
ouid a harder money man be found? 1
Colouol A. J. Kellar, of Memphis, described as a J
rido awako newspaper man, has Just returned from
t'ashingien, and is of opinion that Washburne, tho ,
ircsent Minister to Eruuoe, is tho coming man lor
'resident on the republican ticket The Kvausvilie i
Iinu, I tl.lnlri: Ih.r. will I... ? nnnit U'r.ri. I
uesses than Colonel Kcllar's.
Tbo Evansville (lnd.) Journal (rep.) avers that
'Washburne has not bocn identified with any of the
uistakes ot Grant's administration, or or the party
rith which he has always bocn identified, and this will j
ount strong in a close canvass. In taking a prophetic
lew of tho political situation it will not do to Jeavo
Vasbhurne out."
It Is staled that Boss Shepherd, of Washington, puts
inkling, Blaine and Morton forward as tho Prcsldenlal
candidates who have the best chauce.
The Congressional contest in the Third district, West
'lrginia, between Messrs. Hereford, Walker and Kenna
I opon'ng lively.
It is remarked as somewhat singular that not a relubllcan
paper has thus far nominated Brislow lor the
'residency. The Worcester Spy is at least one excepton.
There are forty-seven lodges of tho "A. O. D. W." In
own. What's its other name?
A correspondent of the Lewisburg (Pa.) Chronicle
rep.) romurks that "Pennsylvania's own James G
llaine can bo forgiven for moving eastward to satisfy
its wifo's longing for her native home, and would make |
good Vico President, with a ch&nce for President in j
ue time."
As a matter of contrasts, the following, from the ,
igdensburg Journal (rep.), is rather suggestive:?
Brislow iias no difficulty whatever, aided by republi- <
an officials, in punishing the members of the gigantic
t'litskcy King. Barlow and Phelps had no ditllculty in 1 !
flushing the members of the Tammany King. A
rpublicun Legislature had no difficulty in iin|>euch!ng
he old Tammany judges; but when tho great dcnioratic
reformer, Governor Tilden, takes the field to
estroy the canal thieves no ono gets hurt. No wealthy
ascal is deprived of his liberty and no one loses his
stato. As a reformer Tilden is likely to be a greater
error to tho taxpayers, who must pay bis expenses,
ban to the cnnal thieves, who ore left in uuict bos
cesion of iheir plunder." j 1
The Cincinnati Commercial (lnd.) says that "Blaine ;
as knocked down tho democratic cob house, but has
iot creeled a republican temple." But how about the ! j
cuiocrallc White House?
