The United States has sent its note to Britain on the interference "with neutral mails and the note is couched in strong terms.

A meagre two- fifths of the members in the nanied denomination block a move- ment designed to lessen materially the cleavages in Canadian Christian- ity, to eliminate much wasteful dup- lication of and to increase en- ormously the combined efficiency of the evangelical church in the home and foreign mission fields. It is rec- ognized that the task of Canadianiiilng the foreign-born population of the Do- miniote can scarcely be overtaken without united action of the char- acter which the proposed amalgama- tion would To those in favor of union the per- sistence of a small minority in block- ing a great national church union is ia accord with the ecclesiastical his- tory of the'Scottish' race., which Rob- ert Louts Stevenson called the most perverse and melancholy "in man's an- nals.

Hence that surprising clamor of. church bells that suddenly. the Sabbath morning, .from Trinity .'and'' the sea- skirts to Monaingside on the borders of the hills. I have, heard the chimes of Oxford playing their symphony in a autumn morning, and beauti- ful it was to hear. But in Edinburgh manner of loud bells join, or rather disjolu, iu one swelling, brutaLbabble- ment of noise. Now one overtakes another, and now lags behirids; now five or six all strike on the pained tympanum at the same punctual In- staat of time, and make together a dismal chord of discord, and now 'for a second all seem to have conspired to hold their peace." In his conception there are not many uproars in this world more dis mal than that of the Sabbath bells in Edinburgh, "a ecclesiastical tocsin; of .incongruous o: thodbxiea, calling on every separate conventicler to put up a protest, each in his own synagogue, against 'right hand extremes and left-hand defec- tions.' And surely, says Stevenson, there are few worse extremes than this extremity of zeal and few more deplorable defections than "this dis loyalty to-Christian love."
