Pittsburgh Presbyterian Banner (Newspaper) - February 11, 1863, Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaPresbyterian , february 11, 1863.\nshtmm a Muer. , february 11,1868, calves he and readers will recollect the admirable series of letters in our columns John Smith to Peter Smith. They Are printed and for Sale in Pittsburgh. See advertisement. The Board of Domestic missions As Many of our readers Are aware close their financial year March 1 next. The Board Hope that contributions intended for the great work of sustaining and spreading the gospel in our own land will be sent in so that they May appear in the forthcoming annual Lle Pott. Rev John t. Coit pastor of st. Peter s Church Rochester new York died As we learn from the presbyterian in Albion in. Y., on the 23d of january. He was in the thirty eighth year of his age. His illness arising from inflammation of the lungs was of Short duration. He was a native of Buffalo n. Y., graduated at Yale College. And studied theology at Auburn and Andover on Enid for disabled ministers. A a correspondent desires us to state the name and Post office address of the chairman of this committee which was appointed by the last general Assembly. He also asks whether the committee would be will a ing to receive suggestions. The chairman is a he Hou. Samuel Linn Esq., Belle Fonte a. The other members Are Hon. H. H. Leavitt and c. F. Maurice Esq. With judge Linn we Are intimately acquainted and Are sure that he will be pleased to receive suggestions. His heart is in the work. A Well written article for the Banner presenting something practicable and taking might be highly useful. A response and a gentleman who seems to understand the value of a religious newspaper in a family sends $5 to our fund for disabled ministers and for any who May be unable of themselves to make payment. He also proposes that a Hundred others shall do similarly. He wishes the Banner to be sustained without further increasing the Price and without injuring the proprietor. What we desire is a Large increase of subscribers with prompt payment. Our present terms gives us a Small surplus Over costs if this shall be. Multiplied often enough by new subscriptions we shall live comfortably work cheerfully and help our ministerial and Lay Brethren in the doing of a very great amount of Good. A chapter from English the title a a How a free people conduct a Long War a Charles j. Stille Esq., gives us a sketch of the five years conflict in the Peninsula waged by the English against the French. It is in a High degree instructive to us in our present National circumstances and or. Stille applies it judiciously. We wish every one would read it. Those who Are opposed to the government might learn a lesson and the governments friends might find encouragement. It is possible that we maybe subjected to a Long War. It has already endured beyond the anticipations of Many. Our haste to conclude it has been one cause of its protraction. We have much very much to learn. Victory however we May expect with certainty if we shall use the Means which god usually makes effectual. Our cause is Good and lie has put the Power in our hands. Or. Stiller a treatise is an 8vo. Pamphlet of 40,, and is for Sale by r. 8. Dam Pittsburgh. Donations for the soldiers. We Are permitted to give the following extract from a letter to the superintendent of our Pittsburgh Board of co Portage. We Trust it will do Good. A a Headquarters Wessells brigade 1 a a Suffolk ya., jc.12-.i$62. J a a or. John Culbertson a dear sir i am Happy to have the privilege to address you at this time and on this subject that is the books you sent to this 85th p. A regiment last january which have strange to say just reached this place three Days ago they Are however in Good condition and you May rest assured they were As Well received As anything that could have been sent. Lieut. Col. Mcgiffin to. Whom those books were addressed has Long since resigned and gone Home on account of ill health. And As we have no chaplain with us i took charge of them and As we have a number of Hoys in the Hospital to them i directed my attention if you have Uever visited a Hospital with Reading matter you con form no just Conception As to How eagerly they receive it. A a if our kind and Good friends at Home knowhow Mueh Good they could do in this Way they certainly would use greater exertions than they do. I do not mean by this Fco complain at All because the women True and patriotic women Haye done much very much for our poor soldiers on the Battle Field and in the Hospital. But i sometimes think if they would furnish the sick and wounded soldiers with spiritual food to a greater extent and not so much for the nourishment of the body More Good would be done. Because 1 can most assuredly Tell you that in Many cases those things who share sent by our kind lady friends at Home never reach those for whom they Are intended they pass thru go too Many hands and too often Are used by Rev. Or. Torrence expresses much in receiving a package of ,&c., forwarded 1 st summer to the 11th regiment a Reserve corps. They followed a the regiment m its movements and overtook it but lately. The ladies of or. Howard a Church sex Peetz shortly toy Orward a Box to the hospitals a West rho Vire it Ima donations Are and foreign record. A e Are always pleased to learn what the lord is doing to in and for his churches by his word and spirit and what the e torches Are doing for him through the instrumentality of the boards. The record is to some extent the medium of information in both aspects. The mercies of the lord Are great. His benefactions Are wonderful. They Are especially so when we consider Many Sill desert. Christians sometimes complaint their remarks have the air of complaining that the lord does so Little for them in the Way of spiritual bestow cats. Mourn they Well May but complain they should not. There is dryness in fruitfulness withering in the churches. Professors seem dead. Their children wander with the world. Transgressors grow bold. Conversions Are few. Why All this god gives his spirit by covenant. He has established channels of Grace. The rain from heaven makes not the uncultivated and unkown soil fruitful. To enjoy the benefits of the Early and the later Rains the Husbandman must attend Well to his tillage. If we should proceed to apply these remarks our Brethren of the ministry and elder ship might suspect that we meant a lecture for them. We forbear. Our object is to justify gods dealings with his churches and to intimate to those who wish really to enjoy the blessedness which flows from and abides with the copious outpourings and indwelling of his spirit How they May possess this Rich heritage. Domestic missions. Our six Hundred missionaries we believe there Are about that number in the Home Field do a great amount of work. They could do still More we think if they were better sustained. We know that it is not the amount of wages a Man receives so much As the spirit he is of which makes him an effective labourer. But every Man must eat. And every Man must provide for his own. We therefore plead that every minister shall have temporal fruit from his toil a Little of the a a milk of the flock which he a a feeds a something of 1 a wages a from the Church which sends j him on a a a j the record is not in the habit of pub a Lishing statistics of labor performed and of conversions resulting. We suppose it is right in this. It gives us generally a few letters from missionaries which Are indications of what is in Progress. And we have Faith in the Promise. Gods word returns not to him void. It accomplishes that for which he sends it. Receipts in december $14,638. Education. In another place we note the Day of prayer for colleges. It should be observed with the spirit of True desire. We need converted youth need them greatly for physicians lawyers merchants statesmen. We need them in every business of life i and especially for the ministry of the i word. A the report in the record of Rev. Or. Burrowes of City College san Francisco is highly Gratifying. One Hundred and eighteen students Are in attendance. The editorial on liberality is worthy of much attention. We Transfer it to our columns. Receipts in december $7,049. Foreign missions. The most recent letters from All our Mission Fields speak of the general Good health of the labourers and a. Progress in their work with hopeful results. In regard the funds the Board say a a we Are glad to report that the receipts from the churches from May 1st to january 1st, have not fallen off As might perhaps have been expected but they Are nearly the same in amount As in the corresponding Mouths of last year. On the other hand we mourn Over the High rate of foreign Exchange which continues to on remittances to most of the missions a heavy loss is sustained for this reason. Indeed the foreign missionary work is in danger of being very seriously embarrassed by this state of things. Some of the churches we Are Happy to see and also bomb individual donors have increased their gifts to prevent this embarrassment. We wish they could All add considerably to their Ordinary gifts. We Trust god will enable very Many of them to do the Premium for foreign Exchange is truly distressing. We ourselves Are made to feel it in our remittances to our London correspondent. But there is no avoiding the evil. Debts must be paid. Services must be rewarded. Our missionaries must. Be sustained. Of course More Money must be raised. At present it requires eight dollars per Pound Sterling to buy a draft on England whereas Cost is hut five dollars the Pound. Receipts in december $12,238. A publication. This Board like that of Domestic missions closes its fiscal year with the last Day of february. Donations intended for the report to the next Assembly should be forwarded promptly. The army demand for books and tracts continues. Large quantities have been lately forwarded to Kentucky Tennessee and new Orleans As Well As to places nearer Home. To meet the demand Liberal donations Are needed. T receipts in december donations $1,788 sales $4,278. A a Quot a. Church Extension. This Board is still not the favorite with the churches. Its Secretary labors diligently. The Brethren arc cheered with this reflection they conduct their affairs with Economy and they do Mueh Good with a but Little Means. Receipts in december $1,006. Dai of Frai Eft for schools and colleges. The last thursday in february is approaching. It is a Day to he kept in remembrance. Many a prayer offered on that anniversary has been answered. Many an ingenuous youth now a zealous labourer for Christ can thence Date his conversion or his seriousness which is sized in conver Sion. There is nothing in the Day itself More than in any other Day. Its value consists in this that christians have a agreed a at that time to unite in prayer that gods Blessing May be a upon children and youth especially the baptised children and youth of the Church and those collected in schools and colleges with particular reference to an increased Supply of labourers in the Vineyard of the the last general Assembly As Many previous assemblies had done recommended the Observance of the Day in All our churches. Other Christian denominations observe the Day. Perhaps after the Sabbath there is no Day in which the concert among evangelical christians is so general. That alms deeds should accompany prayer is scriptural and it is hoped that our churches will on the 26th inst., attend to these dirtiest in unison. The Assembly recommended a a that a collection he taken up on that Day for the College the Board explain that a a by the a College fund is meant the fund for the maintenance of parochial. Schools As Well As of academies Aud we feel it a duty to give their explanation but we Are sorry that they purpose to make the distribution so extensive. It should he for colleges alone or at most for academies and colleges. For ourselves we May be singular Howe Ever we would give far More for the limited than for the comprehensive one. Our Board attempts too much. It cannot embrace the whole of education in the whole Church children youth academicians collegians seminarians. It is enough for it to attend to the preparing of Young men for the ministry whose talents health piety and devoted Ness indicate a Call to the work and whose pecuniary circumstances Are so straitened that pecuniary Aid is requisite. General education is appropriately in the hands of other agencies. Still let the churches give and Trust to the Board to use their benefactions judiciously a athe Danville review. The number of this journal for december has just arrived. The publication was delayed by causes Aris Irig out of the state of the country. Our Kentucky Brethren have suffered greatly in Many ways by the rebellion. This number completes the second volume of the review.

R. J. Breckinridge . We have read it with much interest but not with the same full satisfaction which we enjoyed in perusing Souier of a the authors previous teachings on the state of the country. This article was written alter the presidents september proclamation and after his message to Congress. It takes Strong ground against the emancipation features of both and especially of the former. He thinks the emancipation policy unwise and unconstitutional. As to its beneficial influence we had our Hopes and our fears. Our Hopes have not yet been realized nor have our fears been dispelled. But still we Hope. Its constitutionality in the circumstances of the Case we never doubted. The doctor in his argument makes it far a More extensive than it is. He says supposition that neither Congress nor the president not both have any Power to abolish slavery in any states in time of peace it is As certain As truth almost self can make it that a state of War can Confer no such Power upon either of Here As in several places his argument seems to be based upon the idea that the proclamation claims to a abolish slavery in the states. This it does not do nor pretend to do. It would emancipate individuals not abrogate Laws. It is aimed at the enemy a Power and not at his civil system. It would take from him his strength leaving him to manage his Home legislation As he article closes with highly patriotic and Christian sentiments. Rev. R. C. Gun Fly of whom we spoke some weeks ago As having resigned his charge at Memphis. Tenn., has accepted the Call of the Central presbyterian Church Cincinnati and entered upon the discharge of pastoral . Rev. Alfred Hamilton ., having accepted a Call to the first presbyterian Church Mattoon Coles co., 111., his Post office address is changed from Aurora to Mattoon Illinois. Rev.

A neat and commodious Church has just been erected in Boston by the munificence of a merchant of the City with a special View to the accommodation of those whose Means would not permit of their worshipping in the More a costly and fashionable churches. May not the question be Here with propriety asked should the arrangements of any Church be Sueh As practically to Debar the poor from attendance upon its ordinances ? much interest on the subject of religion is manifested by the sailors on Board the Ohio at Charlestown Navy Yard and by those also in the Chelsea Marine Hospital. A the subject of Temperance seems to be exciting considerable attention in Massachusetts. A legislative Temperance society has recently been organized consisting mainly or exclusively of members of the state legislature. It is stated also that a petition has Joist been presented to Senate by the state Temperance committee for a metropolitan police for Boston with a View chiefly to the enforcement of the liquor Law in that Eity. We May quote in connexion with the above the following paragraph from a letter lately written by the surgeon of the third Massachusetts regiment a a let me Tell you one pleasing fact. Our Field officers Are All strictly total abstinence men. What a Blessing that is. I done to care though our colonel is too uncouth and unpolished to be a Boon companion for City peacocks i done to care if our Field officers Are All too modest to push our claims and secure favors that other regiments Are enjoying they let whisky alone a the late or.

The january dividends of the two great fire arms companies in Hartford Colts and Sharps together amount to nearly $1,000,000. For the first time since the War opened the Supply of. Arms is ahead of the demand at least for the first time there is an accumulation at the Springfield armory. From 30,000 to 40,000 new rifles Are now on hand packed and ready for shipment. The armory turns out about 1000 Musket per Day. A. New York. From the Christian intelligencer we gather the following particulars in regard to the murder of Rev. Robert a. Quin late chaplain of the sailors snug Harbor on Staten Island and the subsequent suicide of the murderer an old Sailor named Herman Ingalls. The intelligencer says a it appears that or. Quin had gone through the service As usual on saturday morning and Inge la was also present joining in the responses in the customary manner. Prayers being Over the person present retired or. Quin and Ingalls lingering a Little behind. Ingalls came out first and loitered i resolutely near the Steps with his hand in his breast pocket. Or. Quin descended the Steps when Ingalls Drew a revolver from his pocket stepped a few paces toward his victim and dig charged the contents of a barrel directly into his bosom. The Ball passed through the heart and or. Quin merely had the 1 Power to place one hand upon his breast and to step Back about foot when he fell dead his head near the Chapel where he had so Long officiated. Ingalls looked qui 1 Coly at his victim Fot a moment and then retreating a few paces deliberately placed the muzzle of his pistol in his Mouth and Drew the trigger. The Ball had done its fatal work for the murderer fell to the ground and in fifteen minutes he ceased to exist. The whole transaction took place so suddenly that those around were scarcely conscious of it till they saw the murderer and his victim stretched on the it that Ingalls had been Gull to of great crimes in the Early part of his. Life that he had made a confident of his 5 pastor and that the fear lest _ the latter should div Illge his secret so preyed upon his mind As to determine him to. Plunge still deeper into the abyss of crime by the murder of the innocent chaplain and his own self destruction. A Rev. Or. Quin was sixty years old and was chaplain of the institution for thirteen years he was beloved by the sailors who evinced by their tears on the occasion of his funeral that they lamented a Friend As Well As a pastor. At a late Fulton Street prayer meeting a venerable speaker mentioned that even while the dreadful carnage was going on at Fredericksburg the devotees of pleasure were at fortress Monroe almost within sound of the Cannon and the groans of the wounded and dying engaged in scenes of mirth and revelry. He stated however to the credit of the officers of the Colorado that they refused to participate in the unseemly festivity. The speaker maintained that the Christian sentiment of the country needed yet to be aroused in Earnest in a regard to the momentous interests before us. The birth Day of Tom Paine which occurred on the 31st ult., was celebrated in new York City by a Ball and supper. An Exchange in noticing the event says a a there is in new York a lady who was a Little girl when Paine died. It was owing to her father that he died not the death of a dog. Drunken filthy forsaken 1 blasphemous he cried in vain for help from his friends. But the hand of a Christia lifted the Eup to his fevered lips and staid a by him while he alternately cursed the name of Jesus and called out a my god Why Hast thou forsaken me v Little the Giddy throng who went to keep alive his memory and who drank toasts to his Honor know of the agony of that death bed where the fires of the second death had t begun to torture and the worm that never Dies had hastened to his a series of discourses on the apocalypse by the Well known Rev. Or. Gox is i announced in the new York papers. The first of the series was to have been delivered on last Sabbath evening. The advocate and journal has the following in regard to the late or. Robinson a a this Good Man whose death is recorded elsewhere had like All others his weaknesses he charged or. Olin with plagiarism because the doctor described the Arch of a Bridge in Palestine without giving him credit for having previously discovered it. The doctor was seriously grieved about it and had Sharp controversy in relation to it. We believe some missionaries of the East came to his help and testified that they had pointed it out to both the disputants some time after when or. Olin was complaining to or. Bond about the controversy in relation to the division of the m. E Church in 1844, or. Bond said a this controversy is bad indeed but it concerns the welfare of millions of souls. If it were about an old Arch in Palestine it would be All Well enough a the intelligencer says of sex governor Morgan who has just been elected United states.

Flour wheat and Corn were steady. ? a judgment the Only proper Anu leg a a bringing the Case in court. It was injudicious3 for however Well intended the consequence of a judge of his own motion the Case of a. D. Boilea ii last week demo tired the arrest of a. D. Boileau of the Philadelphia journal and the charge of judge Ludlow to the grand a jury in reference to the affair. We also suggested that possibly judge Ludlow Meghji. Discover that he was rather Hasty. This was partially proved even before we went to press As we were Able to add that or. Boileau had Given Gen. Schenck by whose order he was arrested explanations and solemn promises of future Good behaviour. As the Case is important we will give a Little More of its Legal feature. The court met again on february 2d when judge Allison gave the charge to the grand jury. He alluded to the previous charge of associate judge Ludlow and dwelt largely upon the Law. We quote in part. Alluding to judge Ludlow a course he says a a to this proceeding i am compelled to except regarding it As wrong in every aspect m which it can be viewed. I would be derelict in my duty As a judge of this tot�?zv5 y my sat ? might even seem to Sanction and if m speaking i not place upon it my most emphatic condemnation. It was unwise because it was unnecessary the Ordinary Mode of criminal procedure being fully adequate to remedy the wrong it a wrong a As been committed and that method being in my i a judge a my upon Mere information obtained in no Legal Way for there was no complaint under oath with unnecessary and unusual haste making use of his official position to Institute a prosecution strictly personal and private in its nature is to Render the whole proceeding liable to mis construction to place this court in a fals the country As anxious for a us a a it by motion seeking a cause of difficulty with the government and because the legitimate result of Sueh action is to precipitate a collision Between tie state and general government when such collision should by All proper Means and to the last possible extremity be avoided that the True and constitutional government of the land May he upfield and strengthened in its fearful struggle with an infamous rebellion which defies its authority tramples on its Flag imperils its existence and which has filled the land with lamentation and woe. I cannot consent that this court shall even be unintentionally used for any such purpose unless the necessity he forced upon us and that a necessity that cannot be avoided and speaking for myself i Here say it shall not be so used if by the exercise of any portion of or All the rightful Power of my office it can be prevented. A a if a judge May direct an investigation by the grand jury of an individual Case of an alleged false arrest the result of which investigation is to be made the basis of an individual personal indictment then May he in this Way Institute separate and individual prosecutions upon information of unknown and irresponsible persons for every crime known to the Calendar a proceeding entirely at variance with the proper functions of his judicial office and which in itself would constitute a Power of a most fearful and despotic nature no citizen would he Safe for the same officer who procures the indictment of an individual defendant for a specific offence would have the Power to try and sentence him when brought into court by his direct Agency. I have thus at some length gentlemen expressed my views upon a matter of great Public moment i could not do otherwise and Deal justly with myself As a True and Loyal citizen with the Community of which i am a member and an officer and with my country which has a right to know in this the hour of her extreme peril that As a Cit ize nand a magistrate my personal and offi Cial support shall be Given to it. A a no could i by my silence permit the spirit of Malignity and treasonable faction which lives among us which is wholly in the interests of the rebellion which by every Means in its Power seeks to weaken the Arm of the government and to give sup i port and encouragement to armed resistant Ceto constituted authority by the honest and Well intent soued though injudicious action of any member of this court to suppose that it could Here receive encouragement Protection or approval a a i Haye said nothing of the act which has Given Rise to this proceeding i have no opinion about it because the facts have in no proper Way come Feiore me if a prosecution should in due form of Law grow out of the transaction and be called for trial during this term it shall receive its due consideration at the hands of the court. I have formed no preconceived judgment which would disqualify me from trying any Case or determining any question connected with it. A a a a the clerk is directed to enter the following order upon the minutes of Che court a a. A Maud now feb2, 1863, it is ordered that the District attorney shall Send no indictment to the grand jury based on the presentment brought into court on the 30th or.

Editors a it is our privilege to chronicle a very Happy Issue to the Observance of the week of prayer by the Church of Clinton Illinois under the pastoral care of our Young brother Rev. In. Mccook. During the week of prayer there seemed to be so much solemnity and interest that the meetings were continued regularly with preaching at night and prayer meeting in the afternoon until Sabbath evening feb. 1. During that time Twenty three have been added to the Church nearly All on profession of Faith. Others profess to have experienced a change of heart and others still Are inquiring. The lord has heard the prayers of his people and greatly blessed the zealous labors of brother my look during our stay with them of nearly a week we could see no evidence of wild excitement. A quiet solemnity seemed to indicate a genuine work of Grade by the holy spirit of god poured out in answer to the fervent prayers of the people of god. Yours fraternally b. Conover.
