I will state a case Suppose you three gentle men,who constitute the Session of this Church, were not members of this Society, would you have any right to come in here, and make a motion or address the President, unless you were invited? Certainly not. And yet you claim the right to come here and declare the offices of this Society vacant, sir, you have your right here as a member of the Society, and nothing more.

The question was then put, when some Ave or six voted in the affirmative, and some fifteen or twenty in the negative. Mr Bogan stated he did not know whether it was carried or not. when Mr. Carothers remarked that It was tarried of course, for those vAo voted against it r?ere not >n-mbers of the Society. Mr. Henry asked Mr. Bogan if he could sit then- as a man and a Christian, a- an Klder of the < liurcli, and dec ide llit* rcsolut ion carried ? Mr Bogan said he had not decided, when Mr. Carothers said of course it was, for those who voted against it were not members of the Society. At this time Mr O'Brien offered the followin** resolution: ** Kcsalctrf. That the moneys new in the hands of the late Treasurer be appropriated, one-half to the Foreign Missions and one-half to the Home Missions, and the Pastor of the Church >ie re ourstcd to forward said moneys to their respective destinations. * Chairman was ul>out to put the question. Air. Henry rose to a question of order, and wished the Chairman to decide whether the tlrst lesolution was carried or lost The Chairman, Mr. Bogan, said I expect it was. The question was then on the resolution offered by* Mr O Brien, Air. Carothers having demanded previous question. Some two or three voted l'-r it, and some ten or more voting again -t it. H hen Mr. Carothers called on tne persons pres ent whose duty it was to keep order, to do their duty, (those voting no having voted rather loud tor ihi. pastor.) and asked tha* the question be taken over, and said he hoped that all in the room <c?ul<l ntt hj>. that it ten* all /or t/ir good of Hit (? h i*rrti h, inyisttd that nil thou.'d get up. when some fifteen rose.

Cauotheiis Mr. Henry then offered the following preamble and resolutions: Whereas, An uncalled for. and unchristian-like attemjH has been made by the Session of this Church, (the Assembly s. late Fifth Presbyterian Church,) to crush out or break up our very fiour 1-hing Missionary Society; And Whereas, The fact lieiug well known, that the Pastor of this Church, Kev. A. G. Carothers, has taken the entire control of said Church, in every particular, and that he seeins to feel the i'ilit^ thus skouldertd, resting on himself, may succeed in preventing the Society from carry ing out the objects for which it was formed?there fore Hnolced, That the Secretary of this Society furnish the Treasurer with a list ot the members and contributors to this Society, with the amount paid it by each nu ml>er or contributor, and that the Treasurer refund said members or contributors the amount paid in by them. And further? Kfiolced. Thai the proceedings of this meeting, together.with those of the last two regular monthly meetings be published, and all moneys necessary to carry out the above resoli'tiou. lie paid out of the funds of the Society, The resolutions Wing before the meeting, Mr. Henry said: Mr. President, thi* is the day that our Society holds its regular monthly meeting. A notice has been furnished the Superintendent of the Sabbuth School to tie read, also a notice had placed as nsual In the pulpit, but Mr. Caroth ers, the pastor, refused to read it. I called on Mr Prentice, the Treasurer, and one of the Trustees, to know if they had ordered the doors to be closed, lie iuforined me that the Trustees had talked the matter over, and that Air. C irotkers had informed them that the Society was broke up. Acting on this Information they' had concluded tbut the doors should be closed. The result is that we nave to hold our meeting on the outside. Mr. President, this Society has been in existence twenty months, and until three, months ago there wa* not one act, word or deed that had taken place to interrupt the quiet proceedings of the Society until Mr. Carothem, the pastor of this Church,

who professes to be a Christian and a Minister of tlie <iospel, <o far forgot his calling as to g"' meddling with lhe btMiaeM of the Society, by as suming |>oveer and authority that did not belong to him. and would have prevented moneys coming ^uo i&c Society pwpwiy tl*crc. Sir, what right has he fo take upon himself so much* He Is only a tenant at will. Ifrie OA. Wb do -s not belong to him.
