Wlio Have Al%vssys Served North
ern Assembly Rejected.
NEW YORK. May 2C— The Presbyterian
General. Assembly at -to-day's session
chose Los Angeles, Cal., as the pln.ee of
the next meeting.
The General Assembly- acted adversely
on ah overture from the Presnytery of Los
Angeles, requesting that ministers com
ing from the Southern Presbytery and
church be honorably retired with the same
privileges as if they had served always
with the church under the. General Assem
bly. Tlie -matter, came 'lei ore tiie assem
' b'.y in a ""report from the Committee on
Ministerial -.Relief, -.which- recommended ad
verse action: Rev. William S. Young, p.
D., pastor of the Ernanuel: Presbyterian
church. Los Angeles,: advised that the As
j serubly act favorably on the overture. In
I the West, he said, there were many minis
ters who had come from the Southern
; branch, and favorable action by the As
i sembly would, help to (bring: the two
churches together./
Rev. Dr. Thomas Parry,, of AVilkins
burg, Pa., chairman of the committee,
took the opposite view. He said it would
open the. door for ministers of other de
nominations to come to; the Presbyterian
•church and -claim the. same -privileges as.
those ministers -who had .served the Gen
eral Assembly all their lives. ■-.
AVOULD REDUCE ALLOWANCES;
" * Rev. Dr. Benjamin L. Agnew, of Phila
delphia, corresponding of the
Board of. Ministerial Relief, spoke: in the'
same vein. lie said the result. of grant
ing the demand "of the Presbytery of Los
Angeles would be that many of the retired
ministers, who had always been .with the
Northern Presbyterian church, would have
their already: scant allowances cut down.
.".When the civil war closed," he said, "l
would have been willing to. vote for. the
union of the 'two- churches, but I am' ut
terly opposed to' holding, out any money
consideration^ to win them over. AVhen
they will come -.; over; to us on principle,
they will have the same privileges as our
members."
Rev. Dr. . James Mcllvain, of Baltimore,
said it would be unfortunate if the over
tures did .not receive favorable action.
"There is no difference; with: us between
the church— North: ori South, ''.he said. ;
After selecting the next meeting place "]
the Assembly adjourned sine die. j
CITY 1.1G51T COXTRACT.
PnssenjsroT an<l Poivcr Company Bid
!,i!wly to Be Accepted.
Considei'able interest attaches to the
meeting of the Council Committee on
Lights, which is to be. held next Monday
evening.
At that time the question of lighting the
city will be disposed, of. one way. or an
other. There is scarcely a doubt that the
Passenger and Power Company will be
the only bidder for the contract, and- that
it will be awarded. :
It is understood ;that: ; :: the; bid of the
Passenger and Power, Company, which
was made at thcMast meeting- of the com
mittee, was slightly less than the present
contract, but owing to the rumors of a
municipal light plant, and the fact that
the ; Virginia Light and Power Company
was applying. for a franchise,": the commit
tee deferred' the disposition -of the ques
tion as long as possible. > .
The contract Will in all probability be
for. a term of two -years. \.

The farmers report excellent seasons for
planting during the past week, and many
have put in a largo proportion of their
crop. As the season progresses less is
heard of the scarcity of plants. It is
generally believed, how that there are
plants enough for .ail, considering the
available "labor" to- plaiit and work it. The
crop in this section_ will, it is thought, by
many, be somewhat larger than the one
I just marketed. .: ■'.. .

"I want to see King Edward's court, •
And. shake his royal hand.
A palace levee is, they say,
A sight to beat the: band, .
With duchesses in velvet trains
And lords in lace and fur.
I would not miss it for the world,
And I'll be there; yes, sir!" j
Said Mr. Hogg of Texas.
•"Then," cried bur *vise ambassador,
"Go forth without delay.
Get measured for your knee-breeches,;
And buy your sword to-day; ;
And don't forget the silken hose,
And make a careful note
About the buckles for your shoes
And ■; ruffles': on your coat, j
Oh, Mr. Hogg of Texas." i
"Now what a figure I would cut i
In such a silly rig; |
I'd sooner go to Parliament
And dance an Irish jig. : '
This plain black swallowtail of mine;
The tie and other; things,
-ire good enough for; kings,"
: Said. Mr. Hogg of Texas.
All honor to the sturdy soul,
- The spirit .brave and free, --
Amohg:the splendors of a court,' ■• ■ j
Still true to liberty. j

Imported clothes and spats,.

'" And all take off- your hats

■:; ' .'.:. The Exile of Erin.
(By Campbell.)
There came to the beach a poor Exile of
. Erin, '--.-■'
The dew. on his thin robe .was heavy
and chill;
For his country he sighed, when at twi
light repairing
To wander alone by the wind-beaten
hill: ■■ ■
But the day-star attracted his eye's said
devotion.
For.it rose o'er his own native isle of the
ocean, : '
AVhere once, in the fire of his youthful
emotion.
He sangr the ' bold anthem of Erin go
bragh!
Sad is my fate! said, the heart-broken
stranger;.
The wild deer and wolf to a covert can
■ ilee, :"• :_ : ■ ;
But I have no refuge from famine and
. danger, : ,
A home and a country remain not to me.
Xever again, in the greten. sunny. bowers"
AVhere my forefathers lived, shall! spend
the sweet hours. '
Or cover my harp with the wild woven
flowers.
And strike to the numbers of Erin go
bragh!
Erin, my country! though sad and for-
saken. * ■ .
In dreams I revisit thy sea-beaten
; shore; - ! V
But. alas! in a far foreign land I awaken.
Andsigh for the- friends who can-meet
me no : more! .
O, cruel fate! wilt thou never replace me
In a mansion of peace — where no perils
can chase: me?
Never again shall my brothers embrace
me?
They died .to defend me or ■ live to - de
plore! . ■
Where' is my cabin-door fast by the -wild
wood? ..-'-'.
Sisters and sire! "did ye weep for its
fall? . : . ; ■■ - "-'... .. ■
Where is the mother.- that looked on my
childhood? :
And where is the bosom ;. friend,, dearer
than all?
Oh!, my sad heart! long abandoned by
pleasure, .
Why.did it dote on a fast-fadingr treasure?
Tears, .like 1 the raindrop may fall without
measure, " ■ ." : - .-. :.
But ranture and beauty they cannot re
call. . ■".. -
Yet, all its sad recollections suppressing;
One. dying wish my lone bosom can
■ draw;: '
Erin! "an exile bequeaths thee his blessing!
Land of my -forefathers! Erin-go brash!
Buried and cold, when /my. heart stills
her. -motion. . ; ' " •
Green be thy, lie-Ids— sweetest ' fs~e of the
:■ ' ocean! - ' "■'."."
And thy harp-striking. l bards sins aloud
with 'devotion-
Erin mavourneen— Erin-go bragh!
