The ite\i special order was then taken up,

Kev. Mr. .McKay favored the adoption of
the resolution. This was a subject of a good
deal of interest in our own i'hureh as well as
in other*. i.iturgics are iu use not only in
Kpi^copal churches, but also in some ( 'ongre
:'.ition:d ami Associate Reformed churche*,
and had met with no little favor with Pres
byterian-. Thi- movement was not the re
sult of a uu re de-ire for novelty or change.
Many of those most truly loyal to our
Church politx are heartily in sympathy with
it. de-iring a 'better form of public worship
than that now in use. The request does not
e. tine from the mini-lets, but from the peo
ple. --ii iivr-tions troiu -ueh a quarter are
not t'* I'C overlooked. I here t- with mun\

uiid a wl>e ii< liwrunee made, t he appoint
ment of the committee could do no harm,
mid miirht tend to eitli-iiteu the people and
settle their minds on tin- question.
Mr. Frederick .lohiison, of Virginia, op
p. ??-<??! the resolution, He thought the sull
ied had been Mltlieieutly discussed hitherto
and detinitelv decided. The people of the
i'lv-bvtei iait t lunch diil not desire any such

allows tis the great blessing of lihertv.
It does not limit or prescribe our prayers,
and it does not prohibit responses. If a'
brother feels like saying "amen," lie can do
so, and be will not be disciplined. It had
beeirs.-tid f bat there is a growing disposition
a in* >ug the people to adopt forms. This was
idmiiteil. but tie warned l?relhreii that spirit
uality oiieii it ^ not always declines as formal
ism advances. I'his was a tendency that
niu-t be checked if t 'hristians were to be kept
pure and unspotted from the world. Kitual
i-tie pi act ices were but another development
of the worldly ?pii it exhibited in the fashion
able follies of the age. If there were com
pl. ?in|s ot abuse o| our present svstem, or of
a lack of interest on the part of the people in
the forms of public worship, let us come to
the House of (bid in the spirit of praver.
Kit the ministei ami the people conic with
he.ut o\ el Mowing with a sense of the great
ness and goodness of (Jod, and a proper ap
preciation of Jlis mercies. Then there
would be no call for a liturgy.
J{ev.*Dr. Plumer claimed tliat the basis
of the liturgy of the Protestant Episcopal
< lunch of to-day was the forms of praver
and praise originated and used by the ite
foruicd or Presbyterian churches of* the Con
tinent of Europe centuries ago. Those were
days of ignorance, and forms were then well
enough perhaps. We wvre lame then and
needed crutches. Now that we are well, we
have thrown awav ourcrutches, and walking
and leaping j?rai-e (Jod. Whether necessary
or not iu our minority, we do not need a
liturgy now that we are of age and free men.
I he speaker then told several anecdotes at
the expense ot the Jllurgists. Some time
ago, a traveller in a public conveyance went
so tar as it* say that he knew of no instance
recorded in the Old or New Testaments in
which prayer had not been oifcred according
to a form. A by-slander asked him to re
peat that assertion, if he meant it ; and it
was repeated. "Well, then,"' was the re
joinder, "will vou tell me who held
the candle when donah prayed in the belly of
the whale?" The question was not an
swered, but thepei>oii interrogated remarked
that his questioner was either a wag or a
Presbyterian. He also told of tlje Kcn
tuckiau who, being asked his opinion of the
Kpiseopal ritual, said lie liked it because it
"gave the people a chance to jaw back."
lint the great objection which the speaker
had to a liturgy was that it infringed upon
c hristian liberty in non-essentials. He was
tree to say that if a Presbytery or Synod or
(Jeiieral Assembly were to order him not to
use a form of prayer In; should take the very
tir t opportunity to follow' a liturgy. Or if,
on the other hand, such a body was to pre
scribe a form of worship and demand its ol>
servance, he would be like the obstinate boy
John, who, the louder he \yasj called, the
more he didn l answer. In conclusion, Dr.
Plumcr spoke of the adaptability of the
Presbyterian system to all circumstances, and
entei cd a most earnest protest agujnst the
proposed change. It was not aij improve
ment ; it was a step backwards.
Colonel Preston, the mover of the resolu.
tioii, defended it at length. He said he had
not expressed his own opinion ju the paper

In common with mauy others desired it to be
cat inly weighed by the Assembly or u <;om
mitten of it, and a, deliberate niiel final de
ei don nmde. Would this body undertake to
rili^Uf. tliH wish? TTn thought not. It was
loo serious a matter to ho dismissed with a
moment's thought, a story, or a jest. It wax
not hi* purpose to discuss tb? main question
involved: but incident tally he showed that
H turgid were not without able defenders
even in the Presbyterian Church, ami quoted
at length (Yom a book written bv an eminent
Scot eh Presbyterian divine in support of his
position. Luther, Calvin, Melanethon, /win
kle, and Knox were accustomed to use es
tablished forms of prayer. It eouhl not be
-aid that ignorance was their excuse, for they
?nd the people to whom they preached were
quite as well acquainted with the principles
of the Christian religion as we are, and we
surely need crutches as much as they. The
Church could not. go far wrong in following
t he lead of such men as be had named.
Rev. Dr. S. R. Wilson followed Colonel
Preston. He denied that a liturgy was used
by the Presbyterian Church in its earliest
day. Liturgies came in with ignorance and
darkness. As to Calvin and Knox, he ad
mitted that they used liturgies, but used
them only to improve them, and be claimed
that in all ages the most .spirit ually-inineled
Christians had been least addicted to forms
of prayer. Dr. "Wilson replied at length to
Colonel l'roton. The best answer the Getie
ral Assembly could irive to bis question
would be, " \Ve will not entertain it."
Colonel Collier called the yeas and nays
and the call was sustained.
The motion lo adopt the- r? solution wt
then defeated- yr.i-?, 4; nays,
The Assembly then adjourned until 8{
o'clock P. M.
Nialit Session.
The Assembly convened again at 8:13 P.
M., the moderator in the chair. The fifteenth
hymn was sung ; after which Rev. Dr. IIov.v,
of South Carolina, iod in prayer.
Rev. Dr. Flint), of Louisiana, presented
the report of the standing coin mil tee on
Sl'ST KN TAT ION*.
This report recommends the adoption ol
the following resolutions:
" Rewired, That the General Assembly
cordially eounneud the diligence and fidelity
of the Executive Committee of Sustentation
in discharging t he arduous and important
duties assigned I hem.
"'J. That the General Assembly again urge*
upon the Presbyteries the importance ol
continued and increased diligence in laboring
to stir up the churches under their care to a
still greater liberality in contributing ot their
money to this cause as (iod has prospered
them, that ample means may bo plaVed in the
hands of the committee to t liable them effi
ciently to do the work entrusted to them.
" That the Presbyteries be urged to ele
vise and recommend to the vacant churvhc>
under their caro some plait, if possible, by
which thev may be assembled together at
least once every Sabbath day for conference
and worship."
l>r. Flinn, in presenting this report, gave
a brief history of the sustentation cause in
connection with the .Southern Presbyterian
Chinch. It was a scheme to sustain weak
churches and assist in the support of poorly
paid preachers. Thanks to it, no church has
since the war become extinct for .want oi
funds. Rut the operations of the committee
are necessarily restricted. There are four
hundred vacant Presbyterian churches in the
South, and these tint committee cannot
reach. Now, the health and prosperity
of a church depends to a great extent
upon their meeting together to sing and pray
and hear the Gospel preached. What shall
be done with tliein!' One of the resolutions
above reported proposes their rcsusitntiem.
The speaker suggested that the Presbyteries
send suitable men to the vacant churches to
?rather the scattered sWf-p and to encourage
them to meet together weekly, whethr-r there
is a minister with them or not. I?et them
hold a prayer-meeting ami hear a sermon
read. Thus may the cause be revived ami
the now dormant churches he brought into
fruit t ill action, lie knew of and cited in
stances in which this plan had wrought won
drous results.
K.-\ . l>r. Marshall, oi' Leviugioii, was the
next spcakci. Ue spoke a I lemrlh of Texas
as a missionary tiehl second to none in its
flaims upon the Christian Church. There
was a tine foundation there To build on, but
men and money were wanted, lie thought
the men could he found if the money was
raised. Indeed, he had come to tin* conclu
sion that the waul of money was the root of
the whole evil. It was impossible for men
to live on faith alone, although it had been
very nearly done in Texas. 1 he speaker saw
a brother present who had li\ed for months
on boiled corn and faith.
He remarked, also, thai ;/<??./ nun were
needed for the Texan tield. They had no use
lor inudiels or persons in search of well
feathered nests. They wanted men ot judg
ment and ability? men who ran live on very
hrlle, and in the mean time work and wait.
J u conclusion, the Doctor mutle an earnest
appeal tortile prayers, .sympathies, and con
tributions of the Church in aid oi the spread
of the Gospel in the Southwest.
Rev. Dr. limiting, ol Ura/.os, Texas, fol
lowed Dr. .Marshall in an earnest and elo
quent appeal in behalf ol the same great lit-ltl.
lie sketched the history of the Presbyterian
Church in Texas, beginiug with the date ol
the organization of the tirst church
in the days of the Texan Republic.
It had long enjoyed a foot-hold there,
but had done little in eompiris.m with
what other denominations have accomplished.
The example of others should stimulate u-.
It is "territory naturally belonging to us,
and we need men and means jo occupy it.
Tin* Sustentation e'ommin.e have appre
ciated the situation, and are doing what they
can for Texas, but their efforts cannot be suc
cessful unless seconded b\ the people. Let
the tnonev be raised and the men woiilel not
be lacking.
When Dr. Bunting concluded, the dox
olo"v. " Praise God from whom all ble-siiigs
flow," was sung, and the Assembly ad
journed until -'i o'clock this uioinin^.

be necessary to the construction of the road's

to jx-iinit this road to be built oo the road
