o infinite concclousnrss in the uni

are and whitber we are hastening
carries with it a hopelets g'oora that
often . disposes to suioide. To him
who sees goodliest united with infinite

away any apprehension, frr "shall not

Conferring with our cnH ilting engi
neer, Mr. Hermany, of Louisville, he
went to Now York and bnd the rare
tood iortuno to find a Worthing oo
pumping engine in tbeir shops, just
finished and rea-ly for shipnent. I ,
wa built for a N. ithern city not r?ady
for it and Ih-y decided to let us have
it. Without the h S3 of an hour a
written contrait was made, by which
they are obligated to have the pom; s
in successful optration by October ltt,
niving a prt siure of tixty pounds. Iu

ti the lequired tst they developed a
defect tbat would require two weeks
to remedy. Nothin dming my six
jearV connco ion with the water sup

discouragirg. Worthiogton is one of
the la'g-st and mo-t reliable builders
of pumping engines in tbe world: and
oa whom can reliance be placed it not
on such a. firm?. A telegram just re

haps it is proper I should
explain that -our pumrs are more

Btanona for Sot Takln f-art In the
Foreign aillon Convention.
Tne pastors, ministers , and repre
sentatives of the Baptist churcbes of
tbis city and vi iniiy, having a desire
to express themtelves in regard to
thtir con-attendance and afiilia ion
with the Foreign Mission Convention
now in s esion at Tabernacle Ohnrcb,
to have themsalvet properly before
the convention and toe public, draft
ed tbe following preamble and reso
lutions, which were submitted to tbe
offlcet s and de'e.atta of the conven
tion, assembled in tbe Jieale Street
Baptist Church Saturday morning,
September 25, 1886: - -..i
Whkbbas, la view of tbe existing
fact that there is a liock tf worshipers
in this city, styled the "Tabernacle
Church," claiming .lo le Eaptuts,
wilh R. N. Couutee, ' pastor; and
wherea, the eaid R. N. Oounteo and
foilowers were excluded trcnl tbe
Bea e Street Baptlet Chorch ft ran un
godly, att weU known ,tO tl e world ;
and whereas, toe excineioa ot tne
abova pariies holds good, - and
ss such they are not re cog
n zed by lhe regular Baptist
churches of the . city; , and
whereas, by crooks snd turns cf
sympathisers, tbe meeting of tbe For
eign Mission Convention wes called to
meet at the said Tabernae'e Church
without the knowledge or onsent of
tbe regular Baptists cf the 'city, they
havins nreviouBlv mar'e known tbeir
intention of holding the convention
in a tm table place ; end, wnereas, tnere
being another reason why we did not
couutenar.ee the meeting was that tbe
many secret societies to which tte dif
ferent pes orr, ministers snd mem
bers are connected with the said
Oountee bat repeatedly, and do now,
wags war npon and brand all mem
bers as being robbers, tb eves, devils
and cot-throat", and that our wives,
daught-rs, sisters and mothers are
nottiing but disreputable women, and
that be did not want these secret so
ciety folks to enter the doors of his
church, mr allow one to remain in or
join his church if, they are connected
with any society; and whereas, feeling
that we have acted right aud wieeiy ia
conformity to Baptist principle and in
keeping with the public sentiment
asatost him, we worild have jeopard
ized oureelvts and membership to
have mi t in the Taberneole church;
therefore, " ' :
. Reiolved, That it is the cense of the
put rs, ministers and representatives
of the city that we are in perfect sym
pathy, in genersl harmony attd in ac
ccsd with the Foreign Mission Con
vention in its Ub r foe Ainoa aid the
cane of the church.
Rctolved, Toat cur action has been
subs rvient to the principle of. the
Baptist cause in this c rmraunity and
in accordance with- pob ic sentiment
in withholding our pPcsecoa from the
said convention.
Resolved, That while we have not
minabd in the meetir g with t&evitit
ing delegates, we ba-vo a warm place
iu our bos ims for the continued suc
cess and harmonious- workings of tbe
Foreign Mission Conventioo.
