Four vears aco. at the session of the Gencral Coflference held in Baltimotc.the qncstion of Slaccry in the Church gave rise to a "reat dcal of discusssion and no little cxcitemcnt. The question camc up ngain at this confcrcnce, in the manner dctailcd in thc subjoincd arttcle, which wbich ve takc from thc Tribune of Fri day. The decision we regard as one of vast importance, and thc moral infliience of which must be decnlv felt. It was ren- dercd after a long and animated discuss- ion, which was rnarkcd by no small de- i Sirec ot wartntn on uotn siaes. i is ihjj bc inferrcd from the fact that a commit tce was raised composcd of an equal num- ber of Northern and Southern mcmbcrs, ' including the Bishops of tbe church, to confcr upon scmc plan of reconcihation. . - . .... - o t..i.t ms commuieereporicuo.. ouiu.uu, it was imj,ossiblc to agrce upon any p an of concihation, and wcre accordingly dis- cnargcu. inus siamis iiiu iiiuncr, unu thc decision of thc lnghest body of thc churchisirrcvocablvrccorded7;!j'nini5far- crv.

It is nccdlcssto add, that this decision is one of the most satisfacto rv oncs. Vi'c give thc article from the Tribune. " Those v.ho read the reports which ap pear in our columns of the procccdings of the Gcneral Confcrcnce ofthe Methodist Episcopal Church, now in session in this ; city, will have observcd that an important decision wasinadcin that body on Satur day last, which can hardly fail to attract universal attention. The facts in tho case are briefly these : At tbe last mecting of the Baltimore Annual Ccnfcrcnce, Fran cis A. Hardin, a travelliug preachcr, was tuspended f om his Ministerial functions fcr refusing to emancipate fit e slaves which had come into his possessinn by marriage with Miss Swan of St. Jlary Co. Jld. Frcm this decision be appealed to the I Gcneral Conference, and after devoting ncarly four da-s to an lnvcstigation of tl'.c case and a hearing of tbe partics, that undy on SaturdayIast rendcred a vcrdict ! afiirininr the decision of thc Baltimore j Conference, by a vote of 117 to 50, tbus settliiig theprinciplc that arlaveholder, in j a State wherc the la.is do not rcndcr emancipationabsolutclvimpossible, ouht not to be ordaincd as a nreacher in thc Mcthudist Ep:scrpal Uhurcn. 1 his ver dict uill be secn to be the more cmphatic in its bearings on Slavery, whcn the ground on uhich Mr. Hardin placcd his dclcncc is tauen into consiucr.uiou It j was shown distinctly that thc laws of Ma ryland allowed emancipation only on con ilitinn ot'thp renioral ofthe slave bcvond the limits ofthe State.

It may give it the same construction as hcreto- fore; nor b it likely that the Gcneral I Confcrencc will call them to account for so doing. The moral influence of thc de cision, however, must be widely felt; and when it is cqnsidered that the Southern Delegates contested the case with all their etrength, the issue must be regarded as highly important in its bearings upon Plavery as connected with the Methodist Church."
