We had tplemnt ronreraation jetUrJay

of Ik' P?n-Pre>byleri?h Council that
m?, Kdinburg on the 3d of July anil
I reaui""i in session until the 101b of that
month.
It will 1m remembered that Mr. WrCliire,
in company with a number of other* froui
WheeliiigamI Ticiuity,Including Iiev. Mr*
Ciinninjjhaui,Samuel Laughlin, K?q.,and
Kcv. Mr. Giuton, of Bellaire, and several
Pittsburgh clergymen, left here about the
middle of June, ami took parage at
New York on ihetteamcr Bolivia, of the
Anchor line, that plien between that ciljr
ami <5lai#)w. The passage over was very
pleasant. The *teamern of the Anchor
line aro commodious ami well apiminted
in every respect, and the passenger Iwt
comprised so many respectable and intelligent
jieoplo, that the trip could not
hut Ihj pleasant. There was, for iu lance,
plenty of music on board, the
the steamer being provided with a tutm'c
salomi wherein were both a piano and an
organ, and there were among the pasnengers
any number of accotnpliAhed ladies
who could play and sing.
As in always the ca?e during a parage
at this season of the year, the passengers
spent much of their time on deck, to enjoy
the ocean breeze, cool though it
always is on deck,'ami well wrapped as
one must always he for comfort,
even at midday. Plenty of warm clothing
and a tight cap are essential to the com*
fort of the voyager who expect* to npend
umch of his time on the'deck of an ocean
steamer.
\r, .u.i nut in m...
row font stopped oil* at Londonderry in '
the North of Ireland, and spent several
ditys in Belfast and vicinity, nnd from I
there went aero** the North Channel to ?*
Glasgow, reaching the latter place the ?
day before the meeting of the Council. a
The P.in-Preabyterian Council, tut it is t
calle*!, was not so large a body a* many c
persons might suppose. The roll of dele- ^
gates shows only Ulll names. But these f
names represented many forms of Pres- ?
1>/Ieriani#m from all part* of the world, a
Some of these varieties were as follo\vf*:
Presbyterian Church of England,
Presbyterian Church of Wales, BMab- y
lished Uhureh of Scotland, the United
Presbyterian Church of Scotland, the lieformed
Presbyterian Church, and the
Original Secession Church.
These branches of the great Presbyterian
family in Scotland were represented
l*y delegates from the same branches in
the United States and in the British f
colonies, and wherever else they existed
throughout the world. There were also
other branches of the Presbyterian tree,
such as the National Keforuied
Church of France, the Nation
ji iwn>rnmi vuurcn ,oi Jionanu,
the Free Church of Germany and Old '
informed Church of Kant Friesland, the *
Waldensian Church of Italy, and other
like offshoot* from the parent stem. 1
Nearly all parti* of the civilized world
were represented. Tlie United .State* of a
America seem to have beeu especially c
well represented, a? nearly one-half of the "
delegates were from this side of the a
water. *<
Many persons have a misconception as a
to the objects of this Presbyterian )(.itb- J
*rinj? at the home of John Knox in Ed f
inhurtf. They think that it was an effort t
to uniie the various divisions of the J
Church on some new or old basin. Such, r

and New School divUiong In this country
a f?*w years ago. It wan not contemplated
tli.il points of ditlVrence Would be dincussed
at l-Minburg. The ComUiittee g
tint met in London in 1875, and t
prepared the way for this Council, tKOued c
a circular setting forth the object of call- t
ing it together, tin follows: \
"Wiierram Churches holding lite Ke- J
formed faith, and organized on l'resbyter- ?
ian principles, are found, though uniier a 1
variety oi names, in different parts of j
the world; whereas many of these were
lung wont to maintain clone relation*, but j
art- at present united by no visible bond, J
whether of fellowship or work;and where*
l? in the providcnce of Ood, the time neemi
to have come when they may all more 2
fully manifest their essential oneness, j
mill promote great catine* by joint action; ]
it i* agreed to form a Presbyterian Alii- \
mice to meet in General Council from j
lime to time, in order to confer upon i
matter!* of common interest, and to Mr- 1
(her the end* for wbich the Church ha* J
been constituted by ber divino Lord and |
only King. In forming thin Alliance, j
the Presbyterian Churchei* do not mean J
to change their fraternal relation*
with other churches, but will be ready, |
u heretofore, to join with them in Chrintun
fellowship, and in advancing, the
cause of the Redeemer, on the general
principle maintained and taught in the
Reformed Confessions that the Church of
God on earth, though composed of many
member*, i* one body in the communion
of the Holy Ghost, of which body Christ
i* the Supreme Head, and the Scripture*
alone are the infallible law.'1
The above quotation from'the circular
of the London Committee nets forth with
Huflicient clear new the object* in vi?w in
calling the Council. The article* ol aliiance
provide that "any church organized
on Presbyterian principle*, which holds
the supreme authority of the scriptures
of the Old and New Testament* in matters
of faith and morals, and whoso creed
i* in harmony with the consensus of the
Reformed Confewloos, shall be eligible
for admission into the Alliance."
It was farther provided that the Alliance
thus formed "shall meet in General
Council ordinarily once in three year*,"
and that it "shall consist of delegates,
ministers and elders, appointed by the
clmrchen forming the Alliance, the number
from each church being regulated by
a plan sanctioned by the Council, regard
being hail generally to the number of
congregations in the nereral churches." j
We are indebted to Mr. McClure for 1
P|>|?ie* of the programme of daily pro- !
*>*ding* while the Council was in session. |
For instance, the Council opened at 11 <
k. m. on the 3d of Jaly, by a sermon ill
St. Giles Church, on High street, the
[/'hurch of John Knox, wherein he used
to thunder forth his relentless theology
igainsi Mary Queen of Hcot*.
Then tt 1:20 to 2$0 p. ic. came
'luncheon (dally) at Douglas Hotel, 85
3L, Andrews Square." All the member*
of the Council were provided (free) with
dinner at this hotel every day. Mr. McClure
tells us that business was dispatched
with a brevity almost bordering on
leverity. The time of speeches, except ;
in specisl cases, was limited to twenty
minute*, and concetiuenlly many important
papers were not read. Dr. Cyrus ;
Dickson, of New York, formerly of the i
Second Presbyterian Church in this city, *
made one of the most interesting addresses j
that wa* delivered before the Council, the
lubject Iwing "Homo Missions ;in the '
United State* and other land*."
Among Ihe dUtlnguiihed men who |
Tom liuie to time presided over the }
neeting* of the Council were the Karl of 4
iCintore and Lord Pol worth. Among '
he clergymen who figured con*picuou#ly c
n the discuMion* were Dr. Crosby and j
)r. John Hall of New York, Dr. McOoth J
if Princeton, and Dr. l'atton of Chicago *
-Ihe latter the jwrnon who prosecuted *
'wini? in hin famoun trial for hereby. 0
We have devoted all the apace we can ti
pare to the Council. We judge from all *^counts
that it did not turn out to be a v
erjr im|iortant bod?,but that it in perhap* n
he forerunner of future Councils of more g
igniticance. After itn adjournment Mr. *
ili*f'lnri? iiMnl n f?w il?*? in llin nilrth
? n
f Scotland, and then came on to London, n
'row there he crowed over to France I>
mil spent a week in t'iri*. Some of *
lis ohnervations an to the characteristic* ?
f these tiro great cities are instructive ?l
ind interesting. He thinks 1'ari* the
irightest city ho ever saw?everything
?eing made attractive to the eye, while
London, on the other hand, is made as ,
lull, heavy and ancient looking m 'possi- ?
ile. ti
Two months is not a very long vaca- f
ion tn which to take as extensive
i trip a* Mr. McCluro took thin jS
ummer, but short as it wan we e
ire glad to nee that he improved it Q
0 the advantage of his health and the rereation
of bis mental faculties. On next j,
Vednesdav evening he expects, in an in- ^
ormal way, to give his congregation t|
ome account of what he saw and heard n
broad, and no doubt what he will have *
... . . n
> say will prove very interesting. j(
The Constitutional Convention of the l<
tate of Georgia, now in session, has K
dopted a clause lodging in the Legislate
the power to regulate freight rates
nd passenger fares on the railroads of
bat State. It is more than likely that g
1 the future other States, profiting by A
he experience of the past, will reserve to ^
hemselve* similar rightrf and powers. ?
