Wheueas, The reports of the Sabbath
Schools in this distiict at the Convention
are so meager, and the attendance so
sma'l, therefore, be it HexUeed that we
appoint a Committee to draft a blank re
port, which shall be in the hands ot the
Secretary of the District Convention, to
be distributed to the Schools of this Dis
trict, four weeks prior to our Semi Annual
Convention, with a request that it be
filled up and ceitifiedto, and forwarded
by a delegate, or by mail to the Conven
President and Secretary were appointed
Convention then adjourned with Bene
diction by J. Johnson.
We, your committee on resolutions, re
spectfully submit the following report :
.1. That though the Sunday School is
independent of all secular schools, having
its own field of labor, having its own es
sential characteristics, yet its advocates
and friends may gain much by working
as far as possible to build on the founda
tion of an intellectual education, and sup
ply the religious training that must of
necessity be wanting in them. General
diffusion of knowledge in the public
schools, calls for a high grade of mental
culture in the Sunday School teachers.
Since we cannot force religious teach
ing upon the masses, cont rary to the will
of the majority, nor would we if we could ;
yet we have a mission to raise the stand
ard of public morals and religious culture
In the coming voters of our American
people, that the majority will give us wise
and high toned teachers, and no others,
to teach the children of our public
2. That though many of our Sunday
School Books are trashy and weak, yet
this is no argument against S. S. Libra
ries. The people will read books -f some
kind. Good books of a high standard of
literary and religious character should be
obtained, and the children and youth
should be encouraged to use them. It
might be well for our Sunday Schools to
to establish Reading Rooms, and make
them attractive by the best of books, pa
pers and magazines,
3. That the attempt to prove the exis
tence of God, the immortality of the soul,
and such subjects of faith, and revelation,
by the common logic of the schools, in
the Bible classes of many of our Sunday
Schools, generally fails lr accomplish the
thing intended, and is productive of much
harm. We commend to all S. S. teach
ers the beautiful instructive paper on this
subject, by J. P. Early, ordered published
by this Convention.
4. That more attention should be
given in Sunday Schools, to commit
ting scriptures to memory. The many
"golden taxts" that lie at the foundation
of the religion of Christ, bhould be well
studied, then committed.
5. That music should be more a dis
tinctive feature of our S. S. than at pres
ent, by many schools. Not singiugouly ;
but the simple rudiments should be
taught. We commend the method of
Prof. J. W. Ruggles to our schools, as
worthy of our hearty support.
li. That no Sunday School teacher or
christian can teach as the Master taught
without piayer and belief iu the lloly
Ghost. Every person must comply with
the condition of the gospel, before lie can
expect to know spiritual truth.
t. The general spirit of this Conven
tion, during this session, has been good;
the work assigned has been well done ;
the papers were carefully prepared; all
present have been made wise by the
thought evolved and better by the sweet
songs and religious sympathy.
8. It is the sense of this Convention
that the Pastors and Superintendent's re
lation to Sunday Schools, and to each
other, are well defined iu the Discipline;
aud more attention should be given to it
by both Pastors aud Superintendent.
We recommend the perusal of the essay
read, by Rev. G. M. Boyd, to this Con
vention, to our Sunday School workers as
explicit on this subject

John Coburn, Chairman of the Com
mittee on Military affairs, in the House,
recently notified Mr. E. V. Sriialley, a
Clerk of the Committee, and a Reporter
for the New York Tribune, that his ser
vices were no longer needed, since the
nomination of Mr. Greeley for President.
The reason for the removal was that Mr.
Smalley favored Mr. Greeley's election,
and from his position as Clerk, and occu
pation of Reporter for the Tribune, he
ought not to hold the office. Mr. Smalley
objects to his removal for opinion's sake,
and longs for -the return of the good old
times when men were appointed to office
for their honesty and capabiliiy. His
theory would be right if there' were no
honest and capable men, who support the
Republican party, to fill the office ; but as
there are a few left, it would be quite as
well to give the position to one ol them.
M r. Smal ley probably received his appoint
ment when he was friendly to the party
then in power, and urged his claims for
the position on that ground. There is a
good deal of humbug in this whining
about removal from office for opinion's
