Waluch was acc pod and Oom rotted a be. Mcc Arran and j. V. My Cartney and a t. Russell to report thereon. Following is the report of the Board year just closed has been Ono of to stantion in general business. The Banks Pended specie payments the state has a stay Law imports have decreased More of manufacturing has diminished Hun millions of dollars due by the South to the Are withheld civil War has been rages the country is in turmoil and los feelings Are absorbed m the strife j Jib i ions to works of Benevolence have fearfully it cannot then but be sex st our Board of co Portage will share family. We Are however enabled to the Rcd option in the _ amount of our As been email while in some aspects gds interests Basim be Gutive committee were induced last a remove our place of business from st. My to hand Street. The former Posi a Central Public and Well known the 4 with some to Pida Tion but 1860, sept. 1861,. Profit on sales. Expenses of the room contributions to co Portage from churches. Paid col porters and donations col porters employed Ocea signally. Capital at the close of 1859,. Of a a a. I860, a a a a 1881,. On this statement of the boards affairs we make a few remarks 1. It is obvious that our expenses Are very smar less than seven Hundred dollars pays our librarian and Salesman our rents freight taxes postage fuel stationery amp a. Our sales i owing to the stagnation of business have been not quite so Large a they were last year but still the profits have met expenses. 2. Our capital. Has. Increased nearly five Hun. Dred dollars our Stock also is larger by three i Hundred dollars and our indebtedness is less by three Hundred and nine dollars. All this shows an improved condition. 3 contributions from the churches have been less this year than the previous by $120. Hence our co Portage work and gifts have been less. Tins is deeply to be regretted. The indifference of our churches to this work we do not know How to account far. When we say churches we mean especially pastors and elders the leaders of the churches. The people we Are ooh amp Dent would contribute three fold or five fold More than they do if Only they were informed of the boards work and its need and if they were called upon regularly. Can the Breth it Ren pot be awakened to Pic jjptiyity9 to think oif two synods embracing 166 ministers 245 churches and 29,432 communicants cont but ing Only $ such a cause and for a Field so needy is truly painful. 1 4. Our Stock of books embraces the Publica. Ups of the Assembly a to Aryl and also 4 Good selection from the Best boards and publishing houses in the country. We thus Fursh a Large Choice to ministers Pya be christians and Sabbath schools. For this reason we press it upon the Brethren of the synods to patronize their own store they will a doing juggle to them serves and strengthening their own institution 5. We again entreat that every Church shall give us an annual collection and thus make us the distributors of their Bounty and the Board has Sug tamed a serious less in the death of Rev. A. D. .Campbell,.. Or. Campbell was one of our most efficient members always on the. Executive committee always prompt and Ever Active.

Chaplains in the army and Navy is a matter of vast importance and is seriously commended to those who have Tho appointing Power. A2 it is becoming in Christian ministers to accept the position of chaplain Whent duly called thereto and our Christian people should Denvor to have suitable men so the Rev. J. V.

The committee to which was referred the report of the Board of co Portage of the Synod of Pittsburgh and Allegheny recommend the adoption of the following a an expression of the views and wishes of the Synod on this subject 1. We rejoice that the Board under the discouraging circumstances of the Case have accomplished so much and relict that it has not been m their Power to keep More col porters employed on our thoroughfares and m our Puu Taino us and destitute neighbourhoods and we especially regret that the Board has not been enabled to do More by Way of supplying our volunteers with religious Reading. 2. Synod regards adopted by the a Pard of making the profits of the Bop concern support the expenses of the establishment As Wise and proper. We think it questionable whether any similar institution exists which is managed with greater Economy and our ministers and members would do Well to remember that by patronising the Board. And increasing their sales we can enable them to meet their very moderate expenses by moderate profits. I8. We earnestly recommend to each of the congregations uni Jer our care to contribute Annu ally to this Board. A Small contribution from each congregation would enable the Board great a by to enlarge their operations. And to Recomb mend to the Board hereafter to accompany their report to the synods with a list of the congregations which have failed to comply with ithe above motion revs W Jacobus d Dand Samuel Mcclung and messes.

The committee on the fourth professorship &c., reported a the report was accepted and adopted the committee on the fourth professorship of the Western theological Seminary have to report that of the sum of $7,68$ apportioned to this Synod but about two thirds have been paid. Some of tic congregations m the different presbyteries have paid their entire quota some have paid in part a few have preferred paying the interest on their apportionment and some have paid nothing. It is he lived that by a proper attention to his matter by pastors and elders in bringing the claims of the Seminary before the people of the delinquent congregations the amount can be secured. is highly important to the interests of the Seminary and it is due to the worthy professor who occupies the fourth chair that this a endowment be completed without delay therefore. Resolved that this Synod direct the Presby faeries to Tako such action on this subject As May resolved that one or More members of each v a to awaken the Church to a sense of her privilege and her duty in providing Cion portable Homes for her ministry should by sustainedthere-1 fore. Ujj. Resolved that this Synod Renews her favourable opinion of this matter,-andmmendh.the efforts now. Being by Jose ohm a. Wilson in.

Well the same argument would hold True with regard to Belgium and its French speaking population As Well As the Western Banks of tie Liine itself. When at Geneva the brits ant purity and transparency of the atmosphere brought out m singular distinctness the glorious Range of the Savoy mountains including Mont Blanc itself and Thiec a at a distance of fifty three Miles. And the Swiss need speak about the annexation of these and the adjoining territory to Fiance without uncomfortable misgivings.

The indignant protests of All that is Liberal or just m Eui pc they would probably suppress the using flame of Imperial ambition Ete it had begun to waste and consume their Borders. A.
