From the Royal Italian Opera, London, and lately t he great Keusation of tbe Operatic Circles of New York. It is a well-known fact that this gentle man's connection with Maretzek's Opera Company at the Academy of Music, New York, was the chief cause of the recent unparalleled season there, and that his withdrawal from that company was the occasion of the sudden and unexpected termination of the reason llerr Hermanns has been ENGAGED AT GREAT EXPENSE.

General lonft-renre of the Methodist Epitropui Church. [From the Baltimore Sun.] Thirteenth riey?Among the reports snbmit'ed was one lrom the committee on revisals, changing the order of public worship so as to provide for ihe reading of one scripture lesson trcm the Old Testament and one from the New Testament in tbe morning service and ote les sen for tbe afternoon or evening service. They also recommend that the Lord's Prayer be used at the close ot the opening prayer, in which the people are to be exhorted to join audibly with the minister;also that the minis ter always use tbe ritnal at all services of the Lord's supper, baptism and burial of tbe dead. It also makes it the duty of the pastor to keep the records of the church, and to report at each quarterly conference ihe names of all members who had been received, expelled, withdrawn or died during the preceding quarter. The report was ordered to be printed. The reports of the majority aud minority of the committee on slavery were then taken up. Ihe majority recommended for adoption the following resolutions: Resolved, 1. By the delegates of the several Annual Conferences, in General Conference assembled, that we recommend the amendment to the general rule on slavery, so that it shall read : 8LAVEHOLDING, RCTING OR SELLING SLAVES. Resolved, y. That we recommend the suspen sion of the fourth restrictive rule for the pur. pose set forth in the foregoing resolution. Resolved, 3. That the bishops be requested to submit the foregoing resolution to the Annual Conferences at their next sessions, and if tbe requisite number of votes be obtained, to report to the book agents, who are hereby instructed to insert the new rule in all subsequent editions of tbd Discipline. The minority report recommends the selling or buying or holding of slaves be prohibited, "except for reasons purely humane." Rev. John Lanahan, of tbe Baltimore, and Rev. .T. McKendree Rlely, of the East Balti more Conferences, advocated the majority re port. Rev. Mr. Pbelps, of the Baltimore Confer ence, one of the signers of the minority report, did not think the precedents of the past justi fied the adoption of moh a rule as is proposed by the majority. He contended that slavehol ders, as a class, gave as sure indications of piety as any other. He had known them all bis life, and for thirty years had been itiner ating among tbem, more or less. It was also due to himself to say that he had no sympathy with the system of slavery, and he trnsted to God it would fall, and If they could overthrow it, be was with them; but while this was his own feeling on this question, he was not pre pared to say that no man being a slaveholder should be a member of a Christian church. What oppresses us is, that in its dying agonies it may do ns an injury, and you, by your pres. ent action, may contribute to this trouble. Rev. Mr. Harding, of the East Baltimore Conference, and the Rev. Mr. Drummond* of "West Virginia, also opposed the majority re port. Rev. Dr. Tippett, of Baltimore, thought that slavery was doomed, but considered the action proposed by tbe majority premature. The re port would express his views twelvemonths hence. He, however, would vote for the ma jority report. Alter some farther remarks the previous question was ordered, and the yeas and nays were taken on the majority report, resulting as follows:?190 yeas to S nays; so that slavehold ers will be excluded from the church, as there is little doubt ol the action of the annual con ferences.

Sup posing it was all right, published it in good taith, and its falsity was not discovered until the edition was nearly worked off The Worid does not stereotype its forms as do several of U;e other morning papers, and as it is now v ot king off a very heavy editiow daily, we are compelled to go to press at an unusu -lly early hour. The Journal of Commerce was deceived in the same way as the World, nnd of course quite as inrocently. The Herald, we under stand, printed the false proclamation In a large edition, but fortunately tor them, discovered is in time to suppress it in *belr regular edition.
