In the administration of tbe affair* of onr churches. we are, therefore, left to the alternative of dissolving our connec tion with tbe General AanMnbly; and tbe com niitti-e ,?cco-dinyIv recommend that the Synod of Virginia do withdraw from all further connec tion with the General Assembly of tbe Presbyte rian Church In the l*nifed States, which held it* sessions at Cleveland, Ohio, in Mw, 1^7- 1" recommending this course to the Synod, we be lieve that we are expressing the sentiment of the great majority of our churches, deliberately for mod after the moat ample discussion, and when all tbe means of reconciliation and all the efl<?rts f,?r united action have been exhausted. While we take this ground, with a firm trust In tbe justice of our principles, and an unaltera ble reliance on the gracious support of tbe great Il> ad of the Church, we do ao with unabatea af fection for our brethren in the Lord, who have compelled us to ?epnrate from them, and on whom we would invoke tbe choicest benedic tion* of our common I.ord. Signed by?J. N- Daufortb, J. D. Mitchell, O. Tread well, A il H Boyd, J. K. G rattan, mid William Herring. Subsequently, the Rev. Mr. Carotbers offered the following resolutions: R'sxlrtil. That the s'ated clerk of the Synod be directed to retain iu hi* possesion the record* of the Synod till called for by the unanimous vote of the SvhkL a? at present constituted. R'tol-fl, That the Synod of Virginia are on posed to the agitation of the *lavery question in ecclesiastical bodies, and have no sympathy with either Northern or Southern extremists on this nbject, and are opposed to political preachers ami preaching. K'*olrrd. That we have heard with regret that *he sentiments of the Declaration of Independence arc opposed by some minister*; and tbat we re gard tbat national document a* an honor to the bead ;tnd heart of its author, and believe that it ought to N? the pride asd glory of all Presbyteri an*. :?nd of the American people. H inlvft. That the Synod of Virginia, believ 5i _ that from her territorial position *he ha* a great mission to perform iu binding still stronger the c. -d* tbat bold together the I'nion of tbe*e 1'u:ted States, earnestly depr?. ate* all agitation of the ktavery question m ecclesiastical bodies. The resolutions being nnder consideration,Rev. Mr C stated that be wis a Southern man, op posed to tuc agitation of slavery, and was opposed to the actlou of tbe Cleveland Assembly, and also to t!?e action for a new assembly; lie would give b'> views at another tune, but remarked that the K'?oxvillr movement was not wtiolly Southern, a large majority, he thought, were opposed to tbe new organization. The resolutions were laid on the table. Rev. Jouathau Cross, tbe General Agent of tbe American Tract Society for the State of Mary land. made remark*, on invitation of tbeSvnod. showing that through the Society the g?*pel had been preached to the poor who would never have tx-en reached in any other way, and that the So ciety had, through the late proclamation of the Tract Society'* executive hoard. *hown that, not withstanding the action of the Society last spring, they should sanction the publication of nothing on which the whole christian church of tbe United State*could not agree Mr Jacob Gideon (elder) moved to insert all tbe document* in the Assembly's mlnntcs In the report; carried. Sir Crempston offered tbe following resolu tion : Rr'olrci. That, since tbe recent action of the Ttecu'ive committee of the Tract Soc-Jety to ?d ere strictly to the letter and spirit of the cor ti ution of said Society. vre recommend the objects ?id agents of tbe Society to the continued eoufi ence of our churches. Carried. Rev. Mr Haskell wanted time to prepare bis (opinion* for expre**lon; rot to form them. They were now what they bad always bren: but a* a member of the District Pre?by tery and as an in dividual pastor, he thought too little time had been given for consultation. It was not the n*ual custom for yoiiiig men to move too slowly; but he feit now tbat, like Moses by tbe Red Sea, be could recommeud the Presbytery to stand still and see tbe salvation of the Lord! Ilis mind was irwide up; and, like Dr Sunderland, be would sacrifice his relation to his beljved charge, the comfort of his fan. ly?but be could not sacrifice hi* conscience to fhe*e relations. R?*v Mr. .Nourse thought time enough had been given for consultation, and. while feeling for the D.strict Pienbytery, there was no other course, in his opinion, than the one recommended for them to pursue As to conscience, we were not to be gir.d?*d by that. We were guided by the Word of God. Conscience was to be educated. The Northern part of the Church bad given up their ,conscience to the guidance of their fallen in stinct*. We mu*t be guided bv the Bible?and \e was prepared to eut loo*e from Jhe Cleveland Assembly, they had presented a set of Abolition resolution* wbich they were called upon to endorse or repudiate. And as to tbe fi aaiit ial point of view, although they were to lo*e every dollar which the North bad been accus tomed to [H>ur into the So-ithern treasury, yet let the >vnou *rand on principle, and God would stand by theiu. Rev Mr. .V-wlin. President of Delaware Col lege otler-U the following as a substitute for the sport of the Committee on .Minute* of the As Ewibly: \V hereu*. it has been the rule of this Synod, at our annual meetings, to appoint a Committee on \be minutes of the Geneial Assembly to report such matter* as may require our attention; and whereas tbe action of the Assembly on certain eubjects, ha* occasioned much discussion and ditlerence of opinion ; therefore K?*otctil. saiu committee beeicua*d from reporting on lUe minutes of the A*eeu>olv, aod that we reserve anjr definitiv^nction on the rela tion we sustain to tbe Assembly uutil our next Synodical meeting. Mr Ne\*|,u stated in substance that he had no expectation, when lie came into the bonne, of ta k>n-.'any j?art in the discuHsiou of this subject, and he was induced to otter this snimtitufe, not a? an expression of individual opinion, nor to call up the uv-rit* of tbe question. nut simply a* a e od-nn;' It \va* very apparent from the p'oeredlngs of the morning. that *ome members of lhsSyiii4 were not prepared/ for der isive ac tion on points which bad Iwen discussed, and he fea-ed it ui.gbt imperil the integrity of the Syn ??d. winch all desired to b- p-e-sTved intact. The only aim and purpose of the substitute was to let this matter rest; and, iu bis prove ?teiM e. would, hefoie their ue*t imeting, more ch arly indicate what would best promote tbe well being of all the ehnrehes R?v Mr. Mit.-hell m?>v?d to lay the matter on tLe table, a* all present are convinced it was of n ? use to argue?they weredccided, and ought to li?e-t tbe issue boldly. Ilev Mr Sunderland expressed himself wholly opp? sed lo the adoption of the report, and In voked the eon*eq>?enc*? of th?* act aboot to be perf. -ined upon the heads of those who had made up 'h? ir uiiud* to tbe Synod The Synod uight be able to separate him from his church, hi* (>eopie, but tliey could not separate uim from the course pointed out by his conscience. A de*nlto'y debate now took place upon a point of order connected with the *uD*titute offered by Rev Mr N'ew'in. which was ended by tbe witc drawal of the motion to lay on tbe table. Rev. C. H. Nourse thought it better to meet the n<ie?wwn now than to avoid It for a year longer. In 'Lis ease to do nothing was to do everything? \? s to endorse the course of the Aswnibly Gen tlet:i'T? had eooiptained of want of time; didtbey w nit more than had elapsed since the acLon of the rrne.-jl Assembly * R v. |?r B>vd wanted to know. If they did not w.'hdtsw f oui the Assemtilv. what ennrse were they to take .1 regard to tue Richmond Conven tion and the Synod wbich had taken p^.rt in that Condition?were they to irmaiu in <-onvention w<th le>tb. - Again, it Ui<<;ht as well be said as thought that no man could p ea? h iu the South who remained in connection with the Cleveland Aseeiiilily, for it was now regarded a* an aboli tion Assembly the issue come llsrefollowed an animated and latherdennltory conversational deb-ite, led by Dr Heed, the main subject of wbich was tbe necessity of a with drawal from tbe Cleveland Assembly, in which Rev* Carothers, Haskell. Sunderland, Handy a. d others joined, and in which some warmtu was shown, but all courtesy observed. Rev. Dr Smith, of this city, expressed hi* at laet.ment lo the St noil of Virginia and determi nation to remain in it if possible But the main point with him. for he d d not care for ;-!avery or tfee general A-seniby, was tbat be wishea to kMTvW course wx* to lie pursued in regard to the Washington Church property whi'h was rleetind to th? General A**eiubly. he also asked of Dr H*yi1 in regard to a committee which was sppatfited in Cleveland by tbe Southern member* who were to investigate the maiiucr in which tbe Washington church property was held. \ ii luu* gcutiemen responded to the interroga tory made by Dr. Smith, t? tbe effect that such a eoinaaittee had been appointed to lake into con nld-rsiion the manner in which all the church pn poetv at the South ws* held, but not particu | lnr.y wjtli reference to that of Washington R? v Mr .Mitchell believed that in all Missouri not ten mfni?ters could be found who would ad here |o tbe tjti veland Assemble. Rat. Mr Giatlan now moved that the Svnod taken recess uutil five o'clocki which motion an tarried trix:x? sassiov. The ?ynod met again at 5 o'clock, and the Mod orator announced that tbe subject liefore the meetinig ???? tbe re-solution offe:ed by the Rev i i>r ?f?wli : a* a ??it?ntute for the report of the I I.MlatUre tu tbe Minntrsof llie General A?*ern t ^ k At frw ret)io>t of several members the resolu I tU>? Jmv again rend F* Mr Jauies Edwards, of the Columbian Col l*fe, ?ld that In noMcctiM. with the autyttt be wlabed It to be understood tbit there vn not A gonthera km who would bold fort momnt wllb the faction who had effected the action of tho General Assembly. Tba Presbytery had nothing whatever to do with the subject. The Synod could make no progress In Virginia unless the y repudiated the action of the Cleveland As sembly The District Presbytery would not sanction that action. The difficulty of obtaining fund* for the church wonld never be obviated by adhering to the measure* of the Cleveland As sembly The objection about the church prop erty amounted to just nothing at all. Rev. Mr. Grattan remarked that the gentlemen who brought up plea* of precipitate action could not reasonably complain of want of time to con sider the matter; they had bad abundant time. There had l>een a convention at Richmond, which lasted he could not *ay how long, and thev all left it In disgust He had not understood Brother Haskell to sav that his own mind was not made up as to the tlnal issue. Objection had been made to postponing the matter, and he thought that the argumenta in favor of decisive action were conclusive. What was the object to be attained by postponement? Nothing but leav ing the strife, which must be met, face to face, aome dav, to grow and ripen under the influence of agitation, ia circumstance* calculated to au" ment the divided state of feeling in relation To the matter. The man who would hesitate to act, in a matter *o seriously compromising the Inter eats of the Church in tbe South, held himself up a it subject for contempt. Tbe minds of the Presbytery of Virginia were made up, and It only rfmaioed for th^ District Presbytery to deride whether they would go off with tke South, and thereby repudiate the action of the abolition fac tion. It w i.k to be hoped that thev would do so at once. The Virginia Presbytery would be ex tremely reluctant to part from their District brethren, whoin they loved, and to whom they felt bound by strong ties of brotherly affection. It was clear that the District Presbytery and the whole South h?d nothing now in common with the General Assembly. None of tbe churches in Virginia had any connection with the General Assembly, in a financial point of view; therefore, they were decided to go. There could lie no pos sibility of any hesitation in transferlng the prop erty of the District Presbytery to the South The faction which bad brought about the division in the General Assembly were willing and anxious to he rid of the South In the Assembly. What ever the General Assembly of Virginia might do, he would never go info an assembly of the Pres bytery again which had any connection with the Cleveland Assembly. Mr. Daskelf Wished to give more explicit rea sois why he did not feel called upon to art at ou :e in this matter. One was that he had been deeply engaged as recording clerk of the Synod ana b;;d had 110 time to collect hi* ideas in a propir manner to decide upon the matter with so great precipitancy. He wished to do right and not to violate hisconscience in the matter. While he regarded a man without a conscience as a fraolion of a man. he regarded one with a con science improperly exercised to be equally so. He had too high a regaid for the conscience of the Christian world to take the step which had been advocated under the auspices through which it was presented Toe gentlemen bad all spoken their opinions at tbe Richmond convention, and they h*d none forth to the world. Two Presby teries had already arted in the matter. He con sidered the difficulty so as to what position the Presbytery would occupy in ease they receded from the General Assembly that he felt it neces sary to hesitate gravelv before taking such a step Three-fourth* of the material support which he had received Jo aid him in establishing the work of the Gospel in a destitute part of this city had been the gift of those who would not like to see his church become an extreme Southern church. He went on to say that he could not conscien cionsly endorse the sentiment* contained in the report. When he thought of the claims of every human l>eiug on the Gospel he must repeat that he entered his solemn protest against the project of witbdiuwal fiom the General Assembly He held out the olive branch of peace to the Synod and hotted they would give a few day* of "race to the District Presbytery, who were rather alow coaches and desired to move rightly iu the mat ter Mr. Mitchell made some strong remarks sus iaiuiag the report, and stated that he wished to know wbet her tbe District Presbytery would go oU with the proposed new Synod Three Pres byteries would form a Synod, and they had al ready two. If the District Presbytery would go with them, they would thereby preserve the in tegrity of the Synod; but if they did not, they were prepared to meet the C'isis ' He held iu his hand the papers in connection with the Hanover Presbytery, whereiu they proposed to form them selves into two Preabvteiies. Tbey would then be p-epared to meet the issue W bile tbey would deeply deplore the dissent of the District Presby tery to the measure, they could get along with out theni if they were adverse to the withdrawal from the Genera! Assembly. Mr Carother* stated, in reply to Mr. Mitchell's remarks, that the congregations bad not been hea d in this matter In the District; that at tbe last meeting of that Presbytery there were but four ministers present, and that the great major ity of that Presbvterv were elder*, so that it was v?ry evident that had they any desire to move on ' this subject they wvre not prevented by any over bear ing movement. Mr. Mitchell had reference especially to the congregations. Dr. Sunderland felt a strong desire for a short recess; stating as a reason the fact that he was quite uungry, uud wanted his supper. (Laugh Mr. Carother* moved a recess till after evening service. ? Several gentlemen opposed this, on the ground that they had just got up from dinner. Dr. Sunderland thought that, notwithstanding these reasons, be wanted his supper. Dr. Reed moved that a committee be appointed to b ing It to him (Laughter.) 1><\ Reed, in reply to a remark of Mr. Haskell, said that he had seen good omen* attending this movement; and he stated a number of conversa tions resulting from tlT-uts made during the ses sion of the Richmond Convention, which he regarded as marked and striking evidence Itoat the Lord was on their side, and that His f.ivor rest.*! upon the attempt to cut loose from the Cleveland Abolition Awmhly. Mr. Cumpster seconded l)r Reed In this idea, also giving instances which he regarded a* the same. He then went Into a general discussion, urging a unanimous vote in favor of the s-cession, thinking that all tinancial and mo ral considerations should how to the plain intima tion ..f the will of tbe Almighty iu completing thl* jt'?ces?] iw. 1 6 Mr. Ley bum of Richmond, wanted to know If .i I contemplated in his substitute to cont me connection with tbe Cleveland Assem bl\ because in either case an immediate sever ance from the Cleveland Assembly would leave then: alone for a year until the A^embly should c >uie into artive operation. ,\* to the question that money had been contributed at the North lor the IJi*?rirt churchy, it wits jjivpn where It wa? w<-ll known that the District Presby tery pursued the course recommended now by tbe Ri hmond Convention, that it would be uo breach o: faith for them to go with the seces *;at?d that he had been looking at the Methodist and Daptist churches. and had found that while the Southern branches of thesechurchea bad increased in membership and contribution* to all benevolent olrjects, the Northern branches had been steadily decreasing in these point*, and he thought that this was another evidence of the favor of God on such a movement, and of bis dis approbation of an agitation of this vexed question. Mr Haskell wished to know of Dr. Reed whe it was a religious or secular paper which innieted that tirade upon him for his statement that he bad seen the favor of God upon the seces sion movement; also, be would ask of the la*t speaaer his authority for his remarks on tbe rela tive positions of the Northern and Southern branches of tbe Methodist and IJaptist Churches. A motion was ur:de and seconded to have a re ce^< and was withdrawn for? Mr. Mitchell, Who suggested that in conformi ty to the enstotn in such case*, that previous to the vote on the main question, a short season be spent in silent prayer for the blessing of God on the contemplated movement. The sesMon then adjourned for tbe religious exert ii?es of the evening After the religious exercises of the eveniri" were elcsed, the j-'vnod came to order, and re sumed the subject which had been under consid eration when the recess was ordered. The ques tion was called on the substitute which had Itoen presented by Mr. Newlln. and resulted iu its rejection by a vote of 5 to Then the previous question was called, vi* ? the report of the committee on th? minutes of the General Assembly, which resulted In Its adop tb-n by a vote of :f0 to 3. ? The following revolutions were then adopted, tip# : Rttolrtd, That the Synod.of Virginia approve as a whole of the resolutions adopted by the con vention or a portion of our church, which lately Ui''t in Richmond, Va.

The report wa* accepted, and the committee discharged Dr. Van Patten, who was present, now gave notice of hi* intention to appeal to the higher judiciary. The Synod then went into free conversation on the state of religion, and was thus occupied when this report closed Centre Market ?This morning, the supply was amply sufficient for the demand.

T<?-nigbt they have a Hue bill, including the laughable farces of "The Day After the Wed ding" and "Crossing the Line." By the way, we hear that the managers of this company have it in contemplation to tit np some suitable build ing (perhaps the Washington Assembly Rooms) for Theatrical purposes, to enable them to bring out a class of pieces which the capabilities of their present quarters will not permit them to represent. We think the project a good one, and these gentlemen are admirably fitted by their en terprise, judgment, and good taste, to succeed In it. Robbing a Blind Man.?Nancy Phillips and her son Wm. G. Phillips, who Is blind, csm? from Baltimore to this city on Thursday night, and took lodgings at a German bouse near Third street and Maryland avenue. The son had with him over S100. The mother missed him, and on search found him at a hou?e on Third street of rather doubtful character, and while here the old lady saw Catharine O. Rose, one of the intimates of the house, pick her son's pocket of his money. Mrs. Phillips thereupon procured the assistance of Officers Yeatman and McHenry, of the Fourth district, who went to the house and arrested Catharirif. In conducting her to the magistrate's they were set upon by a man named Allen MRomp son. who attempted her rescue. He alw was taken in charge, and both were carried to the office of Justice Godda'd, who sent th'Mntoiail for trial at court?one for stealing, and the other for attempting a rescue. F'Riso Pistole.? I.aat night a number of young men were amusing themselves In street pistol-flrlng practice. Captain Mills came upon them and tried to find out who fired; but the young men seemed inclined to throw off; and one wanted to know what right the Captain bad to interrogate him? The Captain, knowing that the pistol was fired from the party, arrested two of them, and took thein to the Guard-house, inform iug them that, after a night's rest, they would probably be more willing to answer the qu?*stlon. This morning Justice Donn held them to bail to answer the charge of riot and disorderly conduct. Lively?Last night the auxiliary guard came upon a number of young ineu, who having been indulging ratber freely were so very mirthful as to disturb the peace and quit t of the city.
