The assumption of the defence that the churches have a right to elect their o't!cer< for a limited term, or otherwise,as they choose, car.not therefore be admitted until there i? a radical change in the organic law of the church.

General M. read the* acts of Confess affecting the railroad, dwe'iing particularly on the clause that the road ??shall pav the owner* of private property along the line of 6?h street, north of Virginia avci ue, any damage which may accrue by reason ol the laying of the track." He said that they were also" there to consider the apprecia tion or depreciation of the property. MR.

There was a smile on the I'MCHOf the counsel for the church, whereupon Mr. Phillips said he noticed that his christian frlei ds had raised a window, that the bells might be plainly heard. Mr. Phillips argued that the church had no right to the street, and that the law was to be construed strictly. The whole of the act under which the proceeding Is Instituted refers to grading. They would con tend that the damage* referred tobytheaet wm those from alteration of the grade. Tkecounsel admitted the acts of ineorj>oration Of tbe church and of the company, and that tli.i fee simple of the ground w as purchased by Mr. Nob e, ar.d by him was conveyed to the trus tee* of the church. the Twmo*r.

Mr. Phillips said that if sn'h an assertion was made it was unauthorized. Mr. (ixrtield said that thev ha 1 expected that the other side would acknowledge such a premise, that Scott had said that the company had paid the full value of a church in Pitts burg and afterwards gave it to the congreja tion. ai.d that thev would do as weli with this church. But it thev intended to hold them to the strict letter of the law they would withdraw the qne*t;on. Mr. Phillips said that the church bad now re sorted to law. Gen. Ma ey said they had not ta\<?n th* proceeding until after rejteated effort* had been made to obtain relief outside of law. At this j>oint the deed of Noble to tliO trus tees of the church was real.

Since the institution of tbe church there have beeu about 300 coin mnnicant*. and at present there are about 150. Since the track was laid they have felt that this was not their permanent home, and have been relying o'u the promises of Mr. Scott. IThis was objected to.] The property is absolutely destroyed as church nropertv; the attendance of the congregation and schoAl has diminished, jt the latter fully fifty per cent. It is not the passage of trains oiilv, but they have th;ir minies, (their engines.) which pass up and down. As soon as this jury completes ita.laboi s and does not give damages, tho congregation is dispersed, the church will be dissolved, and his labors for twenty years will go foe naught. He bad frequently had to cease in his sermon or pravers, owing to the noise, ami In warm wea'ther the church tt filled with smekft from tlie passing engines and from th?>se in the yard on the opposite side of the street.
