A Shower of seasonable rain i the Early hours of morn had cooled the atmosphere Laid the dust and made the Ait Balmy with the breath of the Sweet. South. All was Gladney with and without the great budding at Kensington save that Ever and anon the consorts death oaten up upon the memory and heart solemn in its, As the slave in the classic triumphs we o told the Victor in his Chariot that he was mortal and saddening in reminding the throng that he whose Genius and taste As Well As whose True love for All Mankind and its Unity had evoked both 1 he first exhibition of 1851 and that of 186 a each a thing of Beauty a and the second More glorious than the first was mouldering in. The vaults of Windsor Castle while the stricken Queen at the very hour when the flemish of trumpets announced hat the new exhibition was opened was arriving at balt no ral after a journey of six Hundred Miles pursued All the previous night and , As if she sought to get away As fast Quot and As far As possible from a scene of heartbreaking suggestiveness. Thus also was the popular sympathy evoked and deepened specially among the a thirty six thousand who entered the build-5 ing on thursday armed with three Guinea season tickets or the a a open sesame afforded to those who took part in the opening official proceedings As also to the representatives of the press. For in the Noble ode written for the occasion , the poet laureate the singing of which by a choir of about two thousand persons Acom Nied by a powerful band Otner Strumental performers and in music of the loftiest order by an English composer or. Stern Dale Bennet the following passage struck on the ear of the multitude As a Dirge and requiem a a o silent father of our Kings to be a mourned in this Golden hours of Jubilee for this for All we weep our thanks to thee Quot the words a a toe weep were taken up. As a refrain most touching by the choir. The ode proceeded thus. A a the world compelling plan was thine and to the Long laborious o Iles of Palace to the giant aisles Rich in Model and design Harvest tool and husbandry loom and wheel and Engineri secrets of the sullen mine steel and Gold and oorn1 and wine fabrics rougher fairy Fine sunny tokens of the line Polar marvels and a feast of wonder out of West and East and shapes and hues of Art divine ,.All of Beauty All of ub6,that our fair planet can produce brought from under every Star f blown from Over every main and mix As life is mixed with pain the works of peace with works of then the Tebought rises before the poet that while the a a goal a of Universal brotherhood in not yet reached and the optimism of the philanthropist and Christian far from being yet realized yet the present Alene is so Rich to its glad Dening Hope bringing influences that at least the Dawn the Bud the germ the first fruits Are ours a and therefore let us be Joyful. And so the men in the choir ask. A a and is the dream so far away ? t o which the women smgers make response a far. How far. No Man can say i and then amid a crash of jubilant music and in exulting tones All exclaim a let us have our dream to Day 1 finally the ode closes the music at first soft us Appe Ahni but gathering volume and vigor and repeating top twice or thrice the. Six lines beginning a and let ac., until at last the air is filled with claimant congratulation and rejoicing �?o0 be the Wise who think the Wise who reign from growing Commerce Loose her latest Chain and let the fair White waged peace maker Fly to Happy havens under All the sky and mix the seasons and the Golden hours till each Mankind is own in All menus Good and All men work in Noble brotherhood breaking their mailed fleets and armed towers Atid ruling by obey no nature s Powers and gathering All the fruits of. Peace and crowned with All her the music to the last line of this ode was precisely similar to the cot ale of Ger Many hymn like in its cadences Sash as1 Ere now i. Have listened to in the Early summer morning when mingling yith the throng who had come from All countries to drink the Healing Waters of Ems in the duchy of Nassau. But the poet fell below the height of a his Noble theme in indicating free Trade in Commerce As the precursor of the Day when Quot each Man a should find his own in All men s Good and All men work1 in1 Noble it is Only that can bring the world to that blessed consummation. Pity it is that the a a ode Quot should have not done the homage of song to the Cros and the conqueror who once bled on it to Dis enthral of inked and who by and by shall reign Over hearts. A a the invisible and Universal lord Quot the building at Kensington covers then to the grand Centre of attraction was Well nigh choked up. Some ladies in their carriages were at Tho building by eight of clock in the morning but they did not find admission till Long alter. 1 reached the place soon after noon and made my Way through Irish Flower girls through Sho Blacks Oyster and Orange Sellers and All kinds of import unities to a a buy a programme to the South East Entrance immediately under one of the great domes. Outside the building were the flags of All nations with the Union Jack in the Centre passing through one of those Tuu nestles which Are furnished so numerous Quot Las to be capable of admitting 100,000 persons m an hour and a half i passed rapidly up a Long and wide corridor. Then turning to the right i caught a glimpse of the vast space set apart for the choir at the Eastern extremity of the building. The1 numbers of musicians singers male and female were immense. The ladies Lent their Sweet treble to the singing were so beautifully dressed and so appropriately too to the season of the year that looking at them As contrasted with their male surroundings you were ready to to a Beautiful parterre of carnations with a sombre setting and . I found specially that the great business of the opening ceremonies was to be transacted in two localities and in two parts the first at1 the Western extremity the Sec kind at the East and right in front of and largely dependent for its Effie Cocy on the help and cooperation of the musicians and the of All at a Quarter past one o clock was announced the arrival in the building of those who were to be prominent actors and almost immediately after began to defile along the Centre of the Nave a Long and impose Iii procession. Cheers were Beard is it passed along standing As i did at to e Western extremity appeared. The head of the procession including the Duke of Cambridge the Queen s Cousin the grown Prince of Prussia her son in Law Prince Oscar of Sweden the lord. , the lord Chancellor and the speaker of. The House of commons each in his Robes with trains borne the archbishop of Canterbury. The Earl of Derby and Viscount Palmerston. These had been preceded by contractors superintendents and architects also the Council of the horticultural society including two Earls and the Bishop of Winchester by the Council of. The society of arts by chairmen of juries by noting commissioners for colonies and dependencies and foreign. Commissioners by the lord mayor of London the City corporation and the sheriffs of London and Middlesex by the lord mayors of York and Dublin and the lord provosts of Edinburgh and Glasgow. There were 1 also eighteen noblemen and gentlemen who forcibly recalled the past being the Queens commissioners for the exhibition of. 1861. Among these was the great astronomer the Earl of Rosse also the right Hon. B. Do i israeli m. P., and right Hon. R. Lowe m. P., both of whom Are Stern haters of each other in the political and parliamentary sense but on thursday were walking Side and frequently conversed together this however did of Complete the procession for next came the Bishop of London with Archdeacon Sinclair a Scotchman like himself and the. Rector of the Parish in which the exhibition building stands. Then appeared her majesty a ministers eleven in All Villiers Cardwell lord Stanley of Alderley Milner Gibson Gladstone Charles Wood sir Cornwall Lewis the Dukes of a Ofner set and Newcastle lord Russel and sir George Grey. The special commissioners first named ascended a platform or dais covered with Scarlet cloth. The Duke of Cambridge took his seat in a Royal a chair placed a beneath a splendid canopy. Then gathered around and1 m front a great company including the foreign ambassadors among whom were the japanese newly arrived and preserving remarkable Gravity a and with the exception of a younger member of the embassy the True a cml Admirann aspect which characterizes those Eastern Peoples. Who look upon the nations of the West As Semi barbarians years ago he appeared at the time of his marriage. Now commenced the musical perform ances of the Day first a triumphal March of Meyerbeer a then a magnificent piece of Musio by the great French composer a her and next the ode already Analysed with All its stirring,.accompaniments. After this the Bishop of London read prayers specially prepared for the occasion in which the following petitions to each of the persons in the holy Trinity Are a Pithy of record a a to thou everlasting.

National Anthem it was rather painful when the Duke had announced by the Queen s commands a a that the exhibition is open Quot and the great gathering had began to circulate freely through the building that the first objects that met my sight were in medially identified with War and bloodshed. I refer first of All to the trophies in the great Nave made by a collector1 of specimens of the Small Arm manufactures of Birmingham and next to the marvellous specimens of Armstrong Guys m All their terrible Beauty of Structure and scientific completeness of scientific accuracy very pleasing was it to pass from these to a department near at hand where Are exhibited models of life boats intended to save life instead of destroying it there is Ilso Here shown Wood amp Rogers Patent boat lowering suspending and detaching apparatus the importance and value of which is very great.

There is a Nave 800 feet Long 100 feet High and 85 feet wide the total Atea roofed is sixty a millions of cubic feet. A it. A it iwas my great a privilege to be furnished with a ticket of admission for the. Opening Day. Approaching Hyde pars on the Quot Northern side1, hear the Marble Arch i saw a great Stream of pedestrian pressing Over the Grassland towards the serpentine on. Their Way to Kensington. The great Carriage drive was filled South and North with a Long line of vehicles and in truth almost every Avenue that led to the Duke of Cambridge As the Queens representative and the Duke read voice a reply in which touching allusion was made to the removal by death of Prince Albert in response to the condolence with the Queens bereavement Whigob had been just expressed. This part of the ceremony was witnessed by Well dressed throngs in the area and from the galleries. Photography was Busy in giving it permanence and will by and by bring out for us a Correct delineation of the scene with All its accessories. I May mention that the Duke of Cambridge is a very tall Scottt Man about forty three years of age but from his baldness looking older. He is commander in chief has a a it kindly expression and a Ruddy countenance. Lord Derby i have Ere now described to your readers. Both he and lord Palmerston were dressed in the Windsor uniform Blue with Gold facings each with the Blue rib Bon a of the Garter across the Chest and a Start on the left breast each has been suf Fermi from gout of late and. Derby halted a Little al. But both looked Well and our Sempr Vire scent Premier Palmerston was quite jubilant and talked sheer fat Fly with the archbishop of Canterbury the a archbishop is eighty two years of age yet Hale and Well the very impersonation of gentleness and took no audible part in the proceedings of the. after the Dukes answer to the address the procession was re formed and proceeded to the Eastern end of the Nave. Here the same High personages ascended another platform a in front of the Majolica Fountain and of the great orchestra. On either Side were ranged r throng of no abilities and. Public characters and among these military uniforms and ladies dresses not forgetting the presence of Beauty in All its varied aspects English and foreign Lenta charming variety to the Beene to the Spectator who like myself1 looked from the gallery above. Near the platform to the left sat the Ven Erable Duchess of Cambridge the prese it Dukes Mother and also the Princess Mary of Cambridge his sister. To one of these ladies the Young Crown Prince of Prussia just a arrived from the the continent Aud probably not having sen her till now since his coming Over and bending Low saluted her by kissing her hand. He the Prince As a Quot Fine Soldier like Young Man much a a stouter Ard More vigorous than when some the cause nevertheless i believe that More persons than visited London in 1851, will be with us this year. God Grant that Long Ere october the closing month of the exhibition liberated America with peace restored1 and Justice and humanity triumphant May be Able to Send across the Atlantic Many sons whose hearts now stirred by warlike and a patriotic Zeal shall yield to the sort sympathies of this gathering of nations. In connexion with the exhibition and a memo Nam of the dead Prince. Dean a Trench has produced a sonnet worthy of himself As follows a.

Mail brings news that the me to the work of founding endowing and Man aging that institution and to the instruction of nine successive annual classes of its students. Suddenly and without any provocation on my part tending toward such accusations but solely As the effect of personal Malignity and Public disloyalty on the part of Thomas a. Not and Stuart of them ministers in regular standing in the1 Church under the1 care of this venera by a court and the latter now sitting As a member of this body-1 find myself accused of i moralities and crimes by both of them m the most Offen hive terms and in the most Public Bare suspicion of whose perpetration by me wot Ltd Render it unfit that i should hold my a of fico of professor and concerning reps ahem for which atrocious accusations my direct pc and immediate Way of redress As a professor brings me to the bar of the general Assembly. These accusations on the part of Thomas a. Hoy to Are con tamed in a publication a signed by him dated March 7. 1862. And published first a Ini the evening bulletin and daily journal both of Libia Siville by and about that time and after wards in other Public journals. The accusations on the part1 of Stimart Robinson Are contained in numerous publications be of which has been distributed in a pamphlet form to the members of this Assembly utterly shameless in its charac ter1 but they were first published in the Louisville daily journal Over his signature about the 7th of March and afterwards very extensively m the Public journals. ,. It is 1 More particularly that aspect of these i Graceful accusations intended to implicate my official character and conduct As a minister teach ing theology by appointment of the Assembly to which i direct the attention of this tribunal at the same time 1�?~would prefer that the deliverance of the Assembly should embrace every charge of every sort contained m the publications now brought to its notice and which i solemnly do Claro before god Are. Without exception false and scandalous. The most distinct of the accusations made by or Loyt in the sense above slated Are that As a theological professor. I have used my position and the sacred Funis of my institution As the Means of hurling fire brands among the churches that raised me to that position and contributed those funds the Moat distinct accusations of or. Robinson in the sense above stated same of them clearly put Forward some artfully insinuated m verbose sentences Are that As a professor of theology had by Art m an unmanly and unch i Tian Leahj hounded on popular passion against my Brethren that As a professor of theology Andi teacher of Rehg Ion generally. 1 had used the position Given to me by the Church to inculcate political dogmas that professor. Iliad taken advantage of the pulpit and theological chair As a politician and that a had claimed the sol Muty and dignity of a theological quarterly and a theological Seminary to Vest my political views with a fictitious solemnity. The substance of these charges is that being a minister of the gospel exercising the office of a professor of theology i have abused my pm i Tion and perverted sacred funds to the pro option of wicked and cruel ends degrading both the pulpit and the theological chair to the advancement of improper Public objects and unworthy personal Aims. Against these libellous accusations i come to the bar of this supreme tribunal of the Church daring whose Good pleasure a i hold my office of professor of theology arid pleading that they Are false and that within the personal knowledge of Thomas a. Hoyt and Isth Art Robinson who have made them i ask the Assembly to make such a deliverance m the premises As in their judgment righteousness d�1 mands and As my character services and office entitle me to expect. And in order to relieve the Case Asfe Ras i can of All embarrassment i hereby resign into the hands of the general As Sembly my office of professor in the Danville theological Seminary desiring the resignation to take effect at the end of the current Seminary year namely on the 1st of september 1862 i deem it to be not Only my Clear right under the circumstances which exist to bring this mat. Ter in this form before the general Assembly but my. Clear duty both to myself and to the Assembly to do so. What i have done appears to me to a have been not Only right and commend Able but of that imperative necessity that its rancorous condemnation involves Alty to the country m of extreme peril and the betrayal of cause and ordinances As the ruler of the in verse no Christian Man. Can with a Good conscience hold any office which forbids him to attempt such services As j have been Traduce for rendering to my country. And no tribunal of the. Church of god can with out sin. Refuse to protect the character of its children and servants when they Are pursued with ferocious and organized calumny apr doing that which is right in itself unto which they Are shut up by divine Providence and which , with. The sentiments of the Church herself. I file herewith the action of the Board of trustees and that of the Board of directors a of the Danville theological Seminary with regard to the matters involved a this. Memorial. The second of these action not yet completed and it need not to have been filed now but for a false and injurious statement concerning it the libellous a Publica Tion of or.
