The object of thia society is to raise funds for the purpose of sustaining a Sabbath school, at Gontour, in India. The exerci.-et of this occasion were of the mnst interesting character. Where all did so well, it might be deemed invidious to spe cify ; but we cannot refrain from eipressing par ticular gratification with poem, written by Charles West Thompson, and declaimed by Chris topher KnauflT; another poem written by a Udy of the congregation, and spoken by Susan Loos; a hymn surgby Emeline E-her, Mary Himicle and H. Hiehle, an 1 a Bible Ieson by fus children of the school. The whole audience seemed highly de lighted and gratified. The manner in which all the pupila acquitted themselves, certainly reflects great credit upon their efficient Superintendent, Mr. Martin Buehler, aa well as all the teachers connected with the school.

The ropor' of the Commit tee on the Treasury of the Synod, was presented nd adopted. Home discussion waa had upon the propriety of a purely ministerial tension. Tba Rev. Mr. Milhr wt opposed to all secret meetings, and did not think them consistent with the spirit of Christi anity. The Re. Mr. Sternberg thought the ministry alone authoring to perpetuate its own or der, and that aa thia la on of tha principal object of ministerial iissions, they were proper and per feclly scriptural. Piof. Williams waa of a differ nt opinion. II thought thai the BlI and the Church recognised the right of Lyrnsn to partici pate in the ordination of minister ; but at present L. did not think it expedient for ibis body to (bol ls!) a custom which hsd Wen so long obsermd in tha ahurcb- The subjeu was deferred for further eensiJtia'ion. Several Committees presented their ropntta nn various su'jivts, which were received and adopted.

These people presented themselvc as being in a very destitute condition as regards thoir sp'nitunl privilege-, and earnestly entreat tho Sno,l to send them a fsithful Minister of the Gos pel. The Rev Mr. C.mrsd made sine further ob servations as to tho destitution of this people, and the importance of providing, them with the faithful presetting of the gospel. The matter was disposed of, by retailing it to the Committee nn Vacmt Con. grcgatione, vith instructions to try all they can to snpp'y them with a Minister.

The Rev. Mr. Stork, delegate to the Evangelicil Luther.in Synod of Pennsylvania, reported that, he hod appeared before that body, and for reasona al together unsatisfactory and unreasonable, waa re jected. The report was adapted, and (he Rev. Mr. Stoik's course highly approved by the Synod. The follow ing resolution was pissed in reference to our rel itions with this Synod. Reso'ved, That we have heard with deep regret our dtlecatr's statement of the failure ofhis mission to the Pennsylvania Synod, and that we are t-ti.l dosiroua of rs'aMUhing fien.lly and ffalein.il tela tion with thnt body. In reply to the resolution parsed by them rtlitive to our body, we can mertlv j say that they suggest no means of removing the dif ficulties exii-ling between us, as we sre not Bware thnt we in any of our proceedings, said or sanction ed anything that can be conaidered unchristian or unjust to the Pennsylvania Synod. Aa soon, how ever, as aught tint might be so construed is pointed out K us, we shall be teady to recall the offensive word or act, whichever it msy be, aofar as in our power, or to give such explanation as comport with truth and propriety. Meanwhile any further overturea for friendly correspondence will naturally come from the Pennsylvania Synod, though in the menn time we shall endeavor to "keep the unity of the apirit in the bonda of peace." A committee was appointed to divide the Synod into ('(inference districts, with instructions to report Resolutions strongly approving ,f beneficial edu cation were adopted. The memlrera of Synod pledged themselves to sustain at least eight young men who are prepiring thcmeolve tj entor the ministry.
