The Rev. Dr. Howard Crosby presented the report of the standing committee on publication. Considering the stir that this board has created during this session it was a very impartial statement of the work that the board has accomplished dur- ing the past year. All the departments of the board have met with a large measure of prosperity. The business department closed the year with net profits of which enabled it to pay over to the mis- sionary Although the sales of books aad tracts were somewhat less than last year, the sales of periodicals h; largely increased. The missionary depi taent received larger contribu than in any preceding year, and was tyst enabled to place a larger dent missionaries in the field, crease the number of permanent It has established Sab from which already churches have The following by BE. Crosby adopted by the assesn Resolved, That we -rega licatioa and Sabbath.school most important agents of tlon, and that as sseh its mi should be liberally supported churches. Resolved, That our churches should as possible use and circulate the pubEcai of our own boar.i as a sound and wholeso: Christian literature for both old and young. Resolved, Th-tt patters be urged to explain to their people1 the difference between the business and the missionary department of the board, and show ihem that the latter de- pends chiefly on the. contributions front our x churches and Sabbat-h schools. Resolved, That the board tahe into consider- ation the advisability of publishing in the German, Spanish and Scandinavian languages such Sabbath school books and papers as may supply a want in our tr.vn schools where pupils speaking these languages are found. The names of the committee appointed to make an investigation into the founda- tion of the reports, almost diametrically opposite in tone statement of facts, that were submitted by the special com- mitte aisd the business committee of tbe board of publication are as follows: Alfred J. Hard, Pennsylvania; Eliae Montfort. Cincinnati; A. D. F. Randolph, New York; George S. Draper, St. Louis; Reuben S. Smith, Cleveland: W. C. Mar- tin, New York, and W. A. Brodie, Koch- ester. The repart of the committee on the freedmen, as to allowing colored Presby- teries to directly to the other boards was against the request. The report was taken up. Dr. Booth was opposed to discrimination, and thought- one Presbytery was as good as another. To place the colored Presbyteries in a sep- arate category was unfair, and while it was done the ir. m'.ood of the colored peo- ple was and they could not feel at home in the Presbyterian church. He moved that their request be granted. Dr. Morris said the freedmen's board was intended to carry on a specific work among the colored people of the South. In brief it does the work of all other boards. He thought this board was needed, and must do the work it does for the wards of the church at large. It is a question affecting the very life of the board and to repeal the rule is virtually moving to abolish the freedmen's board. Dr. Crosby held that the New Testament recognized deaconesses. Dr. Van Dyke was surprised to see such a revolutionary movement emanate from where it did. He did not think there was Scriptural authority and we have enough on hand in the revision business without undei taking other Dr. Agtiew opposed the paper. Dr. Stevenson said Dr. Warfiold had said that Princeton was distinguished for never bringing forth ;i new thought in and he was surprised that he should propose this innovation. Mr. moved that no further action thnii that, adopted be taken; reading action of previous assemblies. Air. Warren's resolution was voted do'vu and the recommendation to send down was adopted, after Dr. Moore had amended that the deacon- esses be simply set apart by prayer. At the evening session the nominating committee announced tbe committee on revision as follows: H. Greene, Princeton; Thomas S. Hastings, Union; M. B. Riddle, Allegheny; W. J. Beecher, Auburn; E. D. Morris, Lane; Herrick Johnson, McConnell; William Alexander, San Francisco. College Presidents Francis L. Patton, Princeton; William C. Roberts, Lake Forest. E. Moore, Columbus, O., (moderator of H.

The premature explosion has caused some speculation as to how it may affect the development of the invention.

Mr. Gladstone was in excellent form and voice and ad- dressed the vast crowd from an elevated position in a corner of the castle yard, while Mrs. Gladstone held an umbrella over his head to shield him from the rays of the sun. He was frequently interrupted by applause, and the utmost enthusiasm prevailed throughout the day. Among the gathering were many recognized Con- servatives, but the speaker's remarks elicited from them no signs of disapproval. DISSATISFIED DOCK. LABORERS.
