And in the niine oi ouroelves and ot our al- it lie?, we uolemuly protest againet the dangerou* doc- J" trines of the holy Father ot the Courier, for Christ's Church ia one and indivisible, and its polity is the same here and elsewhere, now and forever. It is not ot this earth, earthy; and therefore is not to be mou'ded and distorted to suit corrupt politicians. ^ The changing f irms of earthly governments are not to effect changes ia that which is us enduring as the rock of ages. The t!hurch, under an earthly monarchy, remains the same when rebellion has es'ablished a republic. The religious locofocoism of Fa- ^ ther Webb is subversive of Holy Mother Church, upsets St. Peter from ihe rock on which he hvowed the Church was built, and forcibly dispossesses that ^ sainted Apostle of the keys of the straight gate, to ^ transfer them to some-time-hence to-be-canonized ^ Father Webb. This is our exordium, but as we shall go into this subject so as to entitle us o cano fo nization hereafter, we must, for effective future action, give Father Webb's Bull, which he fulminated mf an yesterday, that its fallacy and folly may hereafter be an made apparent This document will bhow, too, how necewary it is that we buckle on the armor in ^ defence of the Bishop, the church, the clergy, and c(Jj the faith. ber Th* Cloiiwo Sccrk iw th?

H* then rea<l the protast, which was ou lear as we could hear, in the following word*:? thi Whereat, the Bisbopol thia diocese, in the addressde>red to thia convention, e?pre??rd in itrong terms of Pu imendation, his approbation ol the coarse and sentiits of the religious paper called the Churchman, pubed in the city of New York; and whereas, the under- m led members of the clergy and laity now in attend* m< eon this convention, entertain a sincere conviction, the doctrines maintained in tlx-said religious paper, the spirit and tonu in which the same is conducted, Fr such as not to entitle it to the support of Protestant jvj] icepalians?therefore, they do most respectfully di?: from the opinion expressed in the said addresp, and 'a' jest this, their diascnt, may be publicly read to this of veution, and he entered on the minutes of theproceed< thereof." he Bishop rose in a state of excitement but little be- th ting his sacred character, and in the most imperious ... iner?a manner which would done honor to Ht-nry Eighth? deliven d himself as nearly at our reporter re Id take bis words, as follows :? I am hero in the double cupacity as presiding officer Ihis Convention, and the Bishopof the Diocese; and it 01 i matter of surprise to me that gentlemen who have tu in so tenacious of their own rights, should be so ne'Ctful of the rights of others.

The kingly and imperative manner?(orhsapired "every inch a king"?the astoundine words, and bold and daring assumption of authoiity?caused w iry man to look upon his neighbor with astonishment 01 r one moment every body stood aghast; and then burst at th a shout of applause mingled with the clapping of St ids, hisses and groans, such as never before were heard th thin those sacred walls. Tammany Hall in its most u, tated moments never presented a more disgraceful i_ :ne, but it was only for a few seconds. The recollec n that they were in the house ot Ood, promptly calmed . 1 troubled waters; and then Mr. Duer again rose in the p1 st respectiul manner. But the demon who appeared ln nave taken such entire possession of our worthy Bishop Ct 1 not yet departed from him; and convulsed with anger, T mbling in every limb, and his face pale with excite, ni nt, he exclaimed, 8e 1 Sit down sir?take your seat! I won't hear a word ! m y apology you may desire to offer, will be received a proper time and in another place !" ! dr. Dueh attempted to proceed, but the Bishop again tn rst forth in his langiKgeof passion; and with a spirit . forbearance which did him honor, Mr Duer submit- of in silence to the bold and dangerous assumption by Bishop of more than Papal authority. Heretofore, enemies ol Pusej ism have only surmised at tha aim ai I object of those who advocate the doctrines ol the ;tarians ; but the Bishop has left nothing to be inf<-r ? r hereafter. He has boldly taken "the bull by the . ns," and declaring himself infallible?the Pope per ie as hurled at the Laity his fiercest anathema. Presi- !'c t over a body ol tho People's Representatives, assem- 'n d to legislate for th* church, he tells them that the fr< iven?ioT is his?that he and he only, will determine re what business mid whit resolutions they shall act? ua at questions shall be submitted to them nnd what sub. f0 ts they are prohibited from considering ! This he fl s, is by virtue.of his office ot Bishop; and that office 1 professes to hold trop> the Almighty himself! Ve a?k the reader to pause add "reflect upan this arro w nt proceeding of the B:shop, and view it dispassionately 10 its wholfi lt ngt'i and breadth. Being Bishop ot the to ocere, he is by the Constitution made the presiding of T ?i of that body, and exprr-saly empowered to give one m te nnd one only. In short, except that he is the presi- w ig officer, his power is no greater tlian that of the hnm- 0| >?t Clergyman of th* Diocese The convention is a l ;islative holy; and when the presiding officer has en his seat in that capacity, he possesses no more auirity thin the Speakerot our Hou?e of Assembly.? ? i powers and duties are precis, ly analogous. If a reso- Si ion be offered lor the consideration of the 'conveii- th n, has he the right to say, "I will not receive and Ji limit it to the convention;" or if an amendment to Jl< i Co- st tution be offered, has he a rieht to say beise he does not approve it, he will not receive and >mit it to the consideration of the body over which l;e i>ides 7 Surely not; because if he is to be the sole ? lee of what proposition shall be submitted to the con- c'' ition, it is worse than idle far that body to asierohle Y* d if he may dv this, has he the authority to say that ec a use he does not approve of a protest against hi* re- pe pmendations, be will not receive it and permit the con- w ition to dispose ol it as they think proper T th I would be a waste of time to point out the gro*s and ai ulting aistimption ol authority to imperiously put forth , the Bishop on this occasion It was monstrous, and inot fail to rouse every Protestant Episcopalian in the lied States, to 'he danger which threatens the church.

Horrible Atrocities-Society in General. Society in this country will soon descend to the vel of that of fc'urope. Emigration from England is lately been so great, and some of which of such nature, as to corrupt, most fearfully, a portion of r own people. The new extradition law between is country and Great Britain will, however, soon t a stop to this. We have this morning one murder, one attempted irder, two suicides, and one attempted suicide to ;ntion. The first on our list occurred in Sehenertndv Inst iday morning, between six and seven o'clock, r Andrews, formerly a gardener in this city, but ;ely a fruit seller in Schenectady, cut the throat hia wife in a most shocking manner. The knife entered beiween the jugular vein and e spinal cord, leaving a gash five inches long and ro inches deep. Yet hopes were entertained of her covery. Andrews has been arrested and is now jail. It is said that he even attempted his vn life alter his attempt to send his wifepremarely into eternity. They had three children. He >peared perfectly sane at the time, and had a loadI rifle by him to use in case of necessity. That, )wever, was secured. It is supposed that jealousy as the cause. The next was a murder that occurred in Canaan, aine. The Yankee Blade, published in Gardiner, veB the following particulars of this horrible afir:? " During the Exhibition! of Raymond & Go 's enagerie, at Canaan on Saturday evening, a most sgraceful brawl occurred between a gang of disderly citizens and the men connected with the enagerie, which resulted in the murder of JVflerm Spaulding, a citizen of that town Spaulding as twice struck in the head with a piece of iron by le of the men sot to keep guard about the tent, id his scull beaten in. He lingered, however, till jnday night, wben he died, leaving a wife and ree children to moHrn his ioss. We have been lable to gather the particulars of this mencholy affair, but we understand that Spauldg was a peaceable, orderlv. and well disposed tizen, not engaged in the riotous proceedga of the evening, and that the blowB which lused his death were almost totally unprovoked, he savage deed caused intense excitement at Calan; a large body of the citizens armed them ilvea with guns, and hurried to the scene of the urder, and several individuals connected with the enagerie were arres'ed. No clue to the nuthor of ie murder has been discovered. It is said, howrer, that two of the men who were in the employ Messrs. Raymond <fc Co., have fled. The two next, suicides, were in Ohio.

On the 28th the Provincial Parliament was to j meet in Kingston. Sir Charles Metcalfe returned to that city on the 24th to prepare for the opening thereof. We annex a few extracts from the last Canada papers. (From Montreal Herald, Bapt.28) Our readers will find below an analysis of two very important acts, which it is understood will be submitted to the Legislature at the approaching session of the Provincial Parliament. It will be seen that it is the intention of the cabinet entirely to remodel our whole system of judicial administration; (ear we must bay to revolution- 1 ize and not to reform it; and, whatever other con- 1 sequences mav follow the adoption of this plan by the Legislature, it is abundantly evident that it will j at once create an enormous amount of "spoils" to be distributed among the adherents ot the Ministry. { This feature in the scheme we cannot but view with distrust, and think that some provision should ' j have b?"en made by which the holders of offices un der tin existing system, should have been secured , by analsgous offices under the new. i Want ot space prevent? our, at present, consider- I tng the details of these most important proposed en- 1 actments, but we nhill take an early opportunity of 1 reverting to the subject. 1 [From the Kingston Statesman.] , Our contemporary, the Montreal Courier, takes us < to task for saying Upper Canada "must" have the ] Seat of Government within what was formerly her ' boundary. We repeat the assertion ; not in anger, < we assure our contemporary, but coolly and deltbe- 1 rately. We can prove by testimony the most unde- ' niable, that the Seat of Government being within he limits of Upper Canada, was a condition of the | Union. And we now tell our contemporary, that if ( that condition is violated, the Union is dissolved !!! Let him mark our words. [From the Kingston Whig of Sept. 2#.] i Mr. Juddh has been returned member {or Cham- ' plain county by a majority oi 3U0 over his oppotivnt, j Dr. Trestler. Mr. Judah's election is a happy refutation of the ungenerous calumny uttered at the expense of the Franco-Canadians ; and we are taught ' in a practical form, that the French Canadians do 1 not insist upou religious or national qualification, ' when their candidate came recommended to them as holding liberal principles. * Among late arrivals at the seat of government, we notice that of Mr. Gibbet Wakefield, member ] of the Provincial Parliament for the county and , people of Beauhamois, (fit representative of such a i people,) who has been waited upon, petted and re- i ceived by all sorts of great folks. Verily, society J has no moral tone in Canada, when it can exchange 1 courtesies with such a fellow. It is in every body's month to-day, that the Hon. Mr. Harrison has resigned, or is about to resign his 1 employment under the government. , As the Clergy Reserve Fu>id is to be a subject of < considerable importance before the provincial par- j liament, we will give a few facts relative thereto s The annual stipends and divisions payable out of this fond to the clergy of the churches oi England and Scotland, and to any other religious bodies or denominations of Christians, to whom the crown is pledged, is thus enu- 1 merated ...? To the Bishop, Archdeacon, Missionaries, Retired Missionaries, and widows of Missionaries ?7217 18 4 Presbyterian Synod of Canada and Church of Scotland 2840 90 0 1 Roman Catholic Bisbop and Clergy 1600 00 0 I The exceeds of this charge above the proceeds of the i clergy reserve fund, is defrayed out of the consolidated 1 fund of the province. It is here to be seen that three sects only received the benefit of the fund, whilst there are fifteen sects in Canada. As the remaining sects arc coin- ( posed of a large portion of the population of the Province, it is clear that difficulties and troubles of a serious nature will arise unless there be an equal division of ihe money. And how can England grant i this and preserve the inviolabilityof her own church! ' Apart from this important question, there are other i matters affecting the Canadians that will yet lead to some heurt-burnings, if nothing worse. The total population of Canada West in 1842, was, according to the census,486,055, being an increase over 1841, ( of 34,043. This population will not permit the Home < Government to pass them by without so much as a nod It is already the remark that the Queen seldom or never mentions them in her speeches, but grasps all she can. Thanks must be given for what is i taken. ( Bridgeport. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Bridgeport, Sept. 27, 1843. Arrival of Governor CUvtland?Firemen?Governrr Cleveland Vint* the U. S.

Gov.Clew land arrived here on Monday from New 1 York, together with Engine Co No 20, from your city, which was on a target excursion, and by the way looked eitremely well.

Cleveland locked quite well. He has almost recovered from his Inmeness?so much so that he ] can walk well with the aid of a staff. He stopped at (he Sterling Hotel It is & admirable place, and < is moat ably conducted by Messrs. Barnum and Fairchild. The Governor was particularly waited upon by < the amiable Doctor , Congressman elect, who ' was not wanting for politeness nor hospitality, and 1 our little Mayor was not behind in his affectionate caresses. ! On Monday afternoon the Governor, together with the Doctor and Jerry, and a number ol others both ii ale and female, accepted an invitation o* Oapt. Fazio on board of U. 8.

On Tuesday the Governor, his private Secrefar , the Doctor, and Jerry, the Mayor, departed from Bridgeport, in a barouch, to Norwalk, as a general training was there that day, it heiag Governor Cleveland's object to review the troops.

He has worked in Westfield the past summer, and left home last Sunday, and was i absent until night. After hisreturn he sent for Dr i Barlow,who sewed up a deep cut between his thumb and forefinger; the bosom of bis shirt had spots on it, and he says lie hurt himself shutting his knife ; but the Doctor thinks it improbable. Capt. Collins has this morning gone to Bearch the house. Hall was committed for further examination. There was nothing done with Bell and Roberta yesterday We learn by passengers in the cars, that the Hall above referred to has been an inmate of the State priFon, 8iid that Irom a knowledge of his character suspicion in the neighborhood is strong against him.

Mr. Westlake had fortunately removed ?I1 his customers' watches the evening previous, or they would have shared the same fate as the other valuables.

They will be sent to New Haven on a requisition, as soon as time will permit. Kibe in Brooklyn.?On Friday afternoen fire was discovered in two stables fronting on Water and Main street* Delonging to Evart Snedeker and Daniel Abbett. It extended across Water street, and destroyed the dwelling liouse and grocery of Mr. Redden, two dwelling houses idjoining, a pump and block maker's ahop, and communi:ated with the extensive stables and works of Messrs. A.leiander Bui neck & Sons, on the south, which were partially injured. On Main street, tho hotel of Mr. Mc l-luer was destroyed, the dwelling and grocery store of Mr. McNally, and one or two other buildings. There were some other buildings more or less damaged. The tames were so rapid in their progress, that a child was imothered before removed, and a lady who had been re. sently confined wos compelled to be taken from her room out of the second story window. The fire is supposed to tiave been communicated by an incendiary, as there had been none used in either of the stables where it was first discovered.

DaKAoniL (VIURDRR ?We have to record one of' tike most daring and atrocious murd?ra that has perhaps ever been perpetrated within the limits of our city. It was committed last night, a short time, after 8 o'clock, on the person of a young woman named Ann Maria Burk, aged 28 years, a nurse in the family of K.H. Moale, Esq., residing in Franklin street, between Cathedral and Park streets. The deceased, it appears, left the house of Mr. Moale about eight o'clock, tor the purpose ol going to the store of Mrs Hann, milliner, in Lexington street, on business. On her way, she stopped at the residence of Mr. S. Poultney, Mulberry street, opposite the Cathedral, where some of Mr. Moale's children had been opending the evening, to say she would accompany them nome on her return She then left and proceeded on her wav to the establishment above mentioned. About 20 minutes or halt an hour afterwards, a person rang the bell of Mr. Poultney's dwelling. A servant man immediately went to the door?on opening which he was accosted by the deceased, who was literally covered with blood. She exclaimed that she had been almost killed bv a man who came up behind, and without saying a word, inflicted blows upon her head. Whilst thus in conversation, she put her fingers to her mouth and picked out a front tooth, which, together with ihe lower jaw, had been broken by one of the b'ows. The unfortunate girl was then taken in and had her wounds dressed, alter which she was accompanied to Mr. _ Moale\ and carefully placed under immediate mediral aid. The attack, it is fupposed, was made whik?" she was crossing a small alley on Mulberry stre??7 opposite ihe Cathedral. No clue whatever>as yet been h*d to the inhuman monster who xlfmmitled the dreadful deed. The presumption is, the unoffending deceased wasmistaken for another, whom some fiend hari Irillmcr Th*rm wppp several bruises and cuis on the face, one over Jhe lelt eye, and one on the mouth, which broke i he jaw bone and displaced several teeth. The fatal blow, and immediate Cbuse of death seemed to have been inflicted wjth a club on the back region of the heaJ, bi-hind the rightear Thisfractured the skull and drove part oi the bone into the brain. The unfortunate youug woman suffered intense agony, thaugh she continued rational un'il about twelve o'clock, alter which she continued to sink ra, idly, and expired about four o'clock this morning, the bore an excellent character, had been in the family of Mr. Moale over a year, and was highly esteemed for her umiable qualities. Several witnesses were called up during the inquest, all of whom testifi-d most favnrabiy of th? deceased,but could in no way account for her having been thus attacked.
