*wwe?t?nt Episcopal General Coxa
*' ventlon.
l>eVt pr. ITaight presented a report from
the Committee on Canons adverse to all the
roposed amendments of the canons with
to the general regulation of minis
^snd their duties.
Kcv. Dr. Daniel R. Goodwin, of PennByl
Tftuift, that clergymen ought to have
rights in their parishes, but not arbitrary
rkhts. He had already called the atten
tion of the Convention to some hardships
?hat might arise under the canon requiring
th? permission of the clergymen of one pa
rich before one from another parish could
officiate there. He presented the following
amendment :
"Resolved, That clause 1, section 6, of j
cinon 12, title* 1, is hereby amended 60 as
to read : ' No minister belonging to this
Church shall officiate publicly, by prcach
ine, reading, or prayers, or otherwise, in
the pftrish or within the parochial cure of
another clergyman, with the intention of
establishing, without canonical authority,
a new parish or congregation therein ; or of
otherwise disturbing the canonical paro
chial relations of said clergyman, and
flC?insit the prohibition so to officiate from
the minister of the parSah or core, or in his
absencc, from the church wardens and ves
trymen, or trustees of the congregation, or
a majority of them.' "
" licsolved, further , That at the end of:
paragraph 4, clause 2, section 6, title" 1,
canon 12, instead of the words 4 and the as
sent of a majority of such ministers shall
be necessary,' shall be inserted the follow
ing : 4 and tho prohibition aforesaid must
be from a majority of such ministers.' "
Rev. Dr. George H. Norton, of Virginia,
said it was very difficult to find any general
expression to describe the rights and duties
of a clergyman when within the cure of
another, and moved that the subject be re
committed with the following amendment :
"Resolved, That the report of the Com
mittee on Canons bo recommitted, with in
structions to report the following amend
ment :
liiJiesolved, That canon 12, title 1, sec
tion 6, [1] be amended by adding : Nothing
in this canon shall be understood to forbid
a minister of this Church from discharging
all his duties as such in respeot of mem
bers of his own parish who may be within
the parochial limits of another minister,
except the duty of preaching and reading
prayers in a public congregation.' "
Kcv. Dr. Goodwin would not accept this
as a substitute ; and it was withdrawn.
Rev. Dr. William Adams, of .Wisconsin,
said : Had not this canon been on the books
for years ? It certainly had. A gentleman
in New York had been tried under this
canon, and the ruling in his case was sim
ply n judicial determination of the sense
of that canon. ft wsu8 determined to make
this Convention a court of appeal by a sort
of side wind, because the case had been
agitated by factions and taken up by some
of the papers. What they meant was sim
ply that the Convention should acquit a
gentleman who had been tried, found guilty,
and admonished by the Bishop. Gentlemen
hud brought the matter up under a plausi
ble measure.
The President : Dt. Adams, it is improper
to reflect upon the actions of gentlemen in
the Convention.
Rev. Dr. Adams : I withdraw the remark,
then; but that's the effect of it. [Laughter.]
Rev. Dr. Adams moved to lay the subject
on the table.
* Several members objected to "applying
the gag law " on this subject, as the House
wanted to debate it. Rev. Br. Adams with- j
drew his motion.
Rev. Dr. J. H. Rylance, of Illinois, said
the memorials presented were respectful in
form, and the fact that they asked a change
acknowledged the effect of the canon as it
now stands. There were many in the
Church who were anxious to undo the cast
iron bands of this canon as it stood. While
there was a proper protection against intru
sions there should be no chance for a cler
gyman to fall under its tyrannical enforce
ment by any foolish brother. He disclaimed
any allusion in this to anything that had
recently occurred in the Church. He hoped
the members of this Church were prepared
to relax this canon a little. He hoped there
was? not a clergyman of such mean spirit in
the Church that he would take a vfrrong ad
vantage of a brother who happened to fall
into his power under thiB canon.
Rev. Christopher P. Gadsden, of South
Carolina, supported the proposed change,
awl related a circumstance in his own ex
perience which, he said, showed its neces
sity. lie had been called upon at one time
to preach to a congregation of a different
denomination, and had nd time to consult
with any one, but had either to go at once
or let those people go without preaching.
Rev. Dr. Ilaight asked whether the pur
port of the canon was anything more or less
than an application of the old principle,
"Mind your own business." It -was diffi
cult to frame a canon that would not per
mit of trouble arising between- clergymen
who held fast to parochial prerogatives and
those who believed they were commissioned
to preach the gospel as they understood it
everywhere and on every occasion. Still
he was willing that the subject should be
recommitted, and the committee would do
the best they could with it. .
Judge John N. Conyngham, of Pennsyl
vania, read the report of a minority com
mittee, presented at the time when the ca
non in question was adopted, which set
forth many objections to the canon.
Rev. Dr. Charles W. Andrews,' of Virgi
nia, said it was an easy thing to pass re
strictive laws and then say to the minority
" If you don't like them leave it." If com
pelled to leave the Church, where could
they go ? Some would resort to the practices
of idolatary, and some would be found upon
the five points of Calvanism. Where out
side of the Church should they rest ? It
was a serious thing to leave the Church. #
Rev. Dr. J. Peterkin, of Virginia, said
the canon did not prohibit the Bishop who,
us they read in the morning papers, had
taken part in a meeting fop the ameliora
tion of the condition of the poor Indiana.
Now, if any clergyman wished to officiate
in his parish against his will it was be6t
that he should do so. If any such olergy
man were officiating otherwise than, tran
siently in his parish, his intention must be
examined and the manner in which he had
carried out his vows. He was in favor of
an amendment allowing a minister to enter
into the parish of another " |o offioiate
transiently." |
Rev. Dr. Samuel Clements, of Ohio, op
posed the introduction of the word " tran
siently." He beHeved a greftt deal of
trouble waB occasioned by the oanon. They
would be better off if this canon was re
pealed, and thought _thafc with Christian
courtesy they could get along harmoniously
without it.
Rev. Dr. Jacob L. Olark, of Connecticut,
*as not disposed for any change in the
canon. If it were changed., oity rectors
could go into the country and perform mar
riages and baptisms and funeral services
without consulting the clergymen in the
places where the parishoners were tempo
rarily spending the summer. There would
be trouble if the canon were repealed.
They were human, and were pfit always at
the foot of the cross, where they should be.
Rev. Dr. William C. Mead said that
Christian courtesy might do & great deal,
hut there were men who were fanatics, and
Christian courtesy flew before' the motives
of their acts. He related a story of a dig
nitary in Scotland, who, on a public occa
sion, wanting the common people to feehave
veil, said ; r. Now, remember the eye of
God will be upon you, and what is more,
the eye of the police will bo upon you."
There were men in the Church who needed
a law to bind them. He would not Bay they
intended to be factions, but they were fac
tious. He bade them beware. Let that
canon which had ' existed over seventy
years still continue.
Rev. Mr. Edmund T. Perkins, of Ken
tucky, argued that the canon should be
amended in the manner proposed, and some
respect showed to the memorials so nume
rously signed that had been presented. He
believed that in the recent case in New
York there was no violation of the canon,
and others believed that there was. What
he wanted was to have the canon made so
plain that it should be understood by all.
Rev. Dr. Adams moved that the whole
subject be laid on the table ; which waB
carried ? yeas, 99 ; nays, 92.
A deputy said he was not in favor of
" instructing " the committee to make a
particular report. If that phrase were
withdrawn he would move a reconsidera
tion of the last vote. This was agreed to,
the Yotc was reconsidered, and then the
subject was recommitted.
A report was submitted from the Com
mittee on Canons advising that the House
do not concur in the action of the House of
Bishops declaring that the clergy of the
Church of England in Canada are admissi
ble to all the rights and duties of the
Church in the United States, which action
is contrary to canon 10. The report was
After the transaction of some further bu
siness of little importance, the secretary
read the usual notices prior to adjournment.
AmoDg these was one to the effect that a
memorial was at one of the tabics awaiting
signatures, of which the subjoined is a
To the Right Reverend Bishops of the
Protestant Episcopal Chvrch in the
United States of America :
Reverend Fathers in God, ? The under
signed, while expressing their gratitude to
God for the evident presence of His Holy
Spirit in the council of His Church now
assembled, and avowing their firm belief
and confidence that Christ is ever with His
body, desire most respectfully to present
this petition :
Whereas, the Bishop of Rome, forgetful
of that catholicity which characterized the
early occupants of his See, has issued a call
to what he presumes to style an Ecumeni
cal Council of the Catholic Church, and,
with whatever motive or erroneous convio
tion further presumes to ignore the Ameri
can branch of the Church Catholic, but evi
dently designs to include it among the
" Protestants and other now-Catholics," to
whom, through the public newspapers, he
has addressed a letter, in which he calls all
such " to return to the truth and commu
nion of the Catholic Church." Therefore,
in view of the historic position of the Bishop
of Rome, and in memory of what the West
ern Church owes to Christian Rome of old,
and in deference to the dignity and just
claims of our branch of the Church, and
with duo regard for enlightened public
opinion, the undersigned, members and
presbyters of the one Holy Catholic Church
iu America, do most respectfully and earn-,
estly petition your venerable body to no
tice this letter of the Bishop of Rome, and
through the Bame channels in which it was
sent make such response as your wisdom
may suggest, asserting clearly and fully the
true Catholic position of our branch of the
Church and its real unity with the body to
whom our Lord assured his constant pre
sence, and wherein he verifies his promises
that the gates of hell shall not prevail
against her.
Mr. Tazewell Taylor offered a resolution
directing the secretary to inform the House
of Bishops that a proposition to reconsider
the canon on assistant bishops is before
the Convention, and request the return of
the papers for the further action of the
House of Clerical and Lay Delegates.
The President announced that hereafter
tho reports submitted will lie on the table
?of the secretary, and be taken up for
the action of the Convention in regular
Several members asked for brief leaves
of absence; which -were granted.
The Rev. Dr. B. J. Haight, of New York,
for the Committee on Canons, offered the
following report :

lution :

lina, for the same committee, reported a

adoption of which he warmly supported in
a brief speech.
It was laid on the table and ordered to be

The Rev. Mr. B. J. Haight, of New York,
for the Committee on Canons, offered the
following report :
The Committee on Canons, to whom it was
referred to inquire as to . the necessity of
'an addition to article 4 of the Constitution
of the words 44 or by the Bishop himself
of some other diocese," or of some phrase
equivalent thereto, beg leave to report that
in their opinion it is not expedient to
make any such addition to article 4 of
the Constitution ; and they ask to be
discharged from the further consideration
of the. subject.
The report was accepted, and the commit- <
tee was discharged.
The President announced the j receipt of
several messages from the House of Bishops,
one stating that they do not concur with the
House of Delegates in its action on the
amendment to canon 9 ; and another that
they do concur in the proposed addition of
another cycle to the prayer-book calendar.
They also transmitted to the Convention
an elaborate report made to them by the
Committee on Christian Education ; which
was read by the secretary to the Conven
The Rev. William Shelton, D. D., of New
York, for the Committee on the General
Theological Seminary, submitted their re
port, and nominated a number of gentle
men as the trustees of that seminary for
the ensuing term.
The hour for the regular order of the day
having arrived, the Convention proceeded
to tie election of a missionary bishop of
Washington and Oregon in conformity with
the action of the House of Bishops yester
day. ... The Rev. Dr. Haight, of New York,
William Welsh, Esq., and others, spoke
strongly in favor of the ^candidate nomi
nated, the Rev. B. W. Morris.
A resolution was carried that the teBtimo
nialp of the Rev.. Mr. Morris be read by the
secretary ; which was done. The Covention
then proceeded to silent prayer, and after
ward to ballot by dioceses.
Some discussion as to the customs in the
Church in such cases ensued.
The President appointed the Hon 0. S.
Seymour and the Rev. Dr. William Shelton,
of "New York, as tellers.
The vote was then taken by dioceses, and
resulted in the unanimous election of the
Rev. B. W. Morris to the position of mis
sionary bishop of Oregon. ? ???

Meeting of the Friends' Peaee Asso
ciation?Speech off John B. Crcn
shaw and others.
A meeting of the Peace Association of
Friends in America was held last night at
the Friends' meeting-house corner of Eu
taw and Monument streets. The speakers
were from different States of the Union.
Daniel Hill, of Ohio, first addressed the
meeting. He said if the Christians i of the
country had carried out the principles of
their religion the country would have been
saved the late terrible waT, and the thou
sands who have gone down to early graves
would have been saved to the country.
Shall the sword devour forever? let. the
Christians stand firm. Let the great evil
be met in our schools, where our children
are taught that war is honorable, that
bravery on the battlefield is heroic, and
their young hearts are fired by What they
hear and read of the honors and applause
which the world gives the eoldier. Let them
be taught a different lesson by their teach
crs and their parents ? -that war is unchris
tian and full of horrors,. &c.
Joseph Moore, of. Korth Caroling, next
spoke. He spoke of the necessity Of con
sidering *he preventives of war.; They,
should speak, write, and preach against it.
It will not be enough for Christians to be
non-participants in war, but they must bat
tle against it. The matf who dies on. the
battle-field now receives the praise jof the
poet and historian, the eulogies of she edi
tor, and the applause of the world, whether
he falls in a good or in a bad cause. ! Chris
tians must be active in 'their efforts to op
pose these false views and correct the pub
lic sentiment of the world. Dr. Janner
was the means of saving more lives than
Napoleon waB the means of destroying, and
why should not the: name of the former be
equally as renowned _a? ? the latter ? It
shows that the man who kills ib more
honored than the man wlio b&vds life.
Christians should teach their children that
it is more brave, nobler, and. heroic to save;
life than to destroy ;it; that it is more heroic
to suffer wrong than to do wrong. The
shallower :'a man is the easier he gets
angry. The best means to put a stop to war
is to strip the cloak from it. Bat even
Christian ministers draw the cloak over it.
John B. Crenshaw, of Virginia, ( gave a
iiistory of the action of the Friends in the
fc'outh during the late war. They appoint
ed a committee to. wait upon the President
of the Confederate States,. and claim; a clear
exemption from military service under the
Constitution. They told, Mr. Davis they
could take no part in the fight ; it was a
principle that they could not give up on
any earthly consideration. Mr. Davis re
fused their appeals, and would not recom
mend their exemption to the Congress. He
Baid that he was sorry that there were
any people in their midst who would not
take up arms to aid their country. Not
withstanding their appeal was (rejected
with scorn, they next addressed themselves
to the Confederate Congress. They were
heard before a congressional committee
composed of prominent men, most of them
lawyers, and the manner in which the
Friends were cross-questioned was a most
terrifying scene. They were asked if they
saw their wives about to be killed if they
would not be justified in cutting down the
slayer. The Friends replied that under no
circumstances could they take ut carnal
weapons. But, unfortunately, the Bunkers
acknowledged that in times of great tribu
lation they would be justified in paying a
tax for their exemption, and it was finally
settled in that way. He then cited numer
ous instances of the wonderful preserva
tion of the lives of Friends who stood firm
in their faith. One who refused to fight
was forced to stand one hour and a hall
under the fixe, of a battlerfield, and escaped
unharmed, while the man at his side was
shot down. Another Friend was forced to
stand up,- with his musket tied to his side,
in the trenches of Petersburg, ;ex posed to a
terrible fire, but he escaped unhurt. But
for ministers of the South the people could
not have been forced into a war. I
Dr. James C. Thomas made a few re
marks. He said that few were aware how
much they were influenced by the senti
ment and opinion of the people among
whom they lived upon the subject of peace
and war as well as other subjects, and he
well knew the effort it required ito battle
with it. He read some extracts from a ser
mon against war by the celebrated Dr.
Spurgeon, of London, to show >that the
Friends did not stand alone in their opposi
tion to war. , j
John Hammer, of Kansas, related an in
teresting incident of the prevention of a
battle between the Cheyennesandlthe Kan
sas Indians through the persuasion of a
committee of Friends, of which {he was a
member, who visited the Kansas Indians.
They consented to return, to their homes,
lay down their arms, and.trus^ to God.
They knelt down and prayed, the Indians
prostrating themselves upon .^hq ground.
Their prayerswere heard. The Cheyennes,
from some cause unknown, returned to their
homes, and a bloody battle waaaferted.
? Francis T. King, of Baltimore; spoke of
the wonderful preservation from the calami
ties of war which had always attended the
Society of Friends for two hundipd years.
The history of William Pento and his colo
ny, surrounded by Indians, of which for
seventy years not a single lFriend was ever
killed. In the war in Ireland "the Friends
escaped destruction in a remarkable man
ner. In "QuantrelPfl .raid in Kansas the
portion of the town settled by Friends was
passed over in an unaccountable manner,
while all around them was. slaughter and
devastation. In North. Carolina, when
Sherman's army was near Kaleigh, and
Johnson's army : was approaching^ not forty
miles apart, the Friends' settlements were
between them, expecting to suffer all the
calamities of war from their position, when
the impending battle was averted. It was
on the spot where for;i two hundred years
peace principles had been maintained that
the great war was concluded. Mr. King
said he believed the question of war and
peace will be the great question hereafter
in the churches, in politics, and pi society.
The statesmen of Europe are earnestly dis
cussing the question, and nearly half of the
threatened- wars in Europe of late years
have been settled by peace conferences.
He referred to his visit to England last
summer, and of his being personally cogni
zant of the great interest which is felt in
the subject of peaco by. leading men in
Great Britain. The meeting then ad
journed. _
