P. M [Krom the Philadelphia Spirit si the Tlmes.J General Convention of the Protestant Epl copal Church In the V. 8. Aft *?u I? , Tu*BDA7, Oct 15, 1844. Alter the reading of the morning service, the minutes ot yesterday afternoon were read and ap proved ' lit. Tymo moved to proceed to the considera tion ot the Canon on Episcopal Resignations. This Canoni as reported from the Committee on Canons, we published some days since. The first section being under consideration, Rev. Mr. McCullough spoke in favor of the conti nuation ol the old canon 32 of 1832 on this subject. He thought it far better than the provisions con templated. Rev. Mr. Young, of South Carolina, spoke at length in opposition to the principle of the ca non. A Bishop is elected bv his own diocese, the House o| Clerical and Lay Deputies content to his testimonials and send them to the House of Bishops, or, it the (.general Convention is not in session, the testimonials are sent to t e Standing Committee of every diocese tor approval. So the whole church has the appointment?while in the present canon, the House of Bishops has entire chaige of the re signation, and their action is final as soon as enter* ed oil their journals, and notice given to the House ol Clerical and Lay Deputies. He thought the whole church entitled to a voice in the resignation as well as uivointment. Rev Mr Van Imokn submitted, whether notice or an intended hpigCDjmte resignation should not be communicated to the Ecclesiastical Council of the proper diocese. The difficulties suggested by Other gentlemen had also occurred to him. I Rev Mr \ oijag read the first and second sec 110118''I the old canon, mid i-uggei-ted that they should come in us section three ol tho proposed canon. Dr. UrroLD said thoy had been Ufi out by the Committee, oecause, after all, the action ot the House ol Hinhops ,v.vb ihe most wi poitant. He moreover wished to keep subjects of ihis kind out of a popular assemblage, aud tins had great weight with him individually, although he did not know that it had been urged before the Committee. Rev. Dr. Young was pleased with the motive, but it did not satisfy him. Jt resignations are to be excluded from popular assemblages why not the election 1 He receives authority from a popular assemblage und can be divested of it without the ad vice or consent of those who elected him, by the principle of the new canon. Mr. Cunningham suggested that the consent of the diocese over which a Bishop presides shall be obtained. Mr. Hudson, of New York, instanced the federal action ot our government in argument that the highest ecclesiastical body of our Church should have pewer over resignation. The Senate advises aud consents to nominations by the President, but the President has power to oust or accept resigna tions :it h's will A Bishop may wish to resign on account of ill health, alleged errots, conflicting opinions, or that he has discovered that his day of us' tuinrss has gone by. This may render it desi rable to l>iin to sever ihe connection between him and his diocese. Where could power be more salt [y left in such cases than with the House ot i>JbhOj'b! lli!v. .tlr Mi.tard wished to amend no as to make the wish vl the lliahop to resign subject to the couient of the ce?e Committee, or a Convention ol his proper dio Dr. Ooilbv, of New Jersey, thought tho notice to the Standing Committee perfectly tair. Judge Chambkhs tho ,ght we were losing time by dis cursive debate; he therefore thought it better to move to stnko out the first section. That would bring the whole matter up on the principles involved. The amendments proposed did, in effect, .trike out this section, and the ar gument then would be open to the whole spirit of the canon. Dr Ooils* thought the bringing up of personal matters belore Conventions as judicial, or quasi judicial bodies was to be deprecattd, and this proposed canon addressed' a remedy to the great and impending evil, without doing injustice to any diocese, lor the diocese can throw all rt quifiUi information belore the House of Bishops, aud we surely can most safely trust any action to the House in volving the standing ot a brother Diocasan. m "? South Carolina, having moved to strike out the first section, and introduce instead thereof, the 1st and 3d sections ol canon 33 ?f 183-1. .i.'1"'*" of Morida, opposed any principle, but tnat ot the ancient process which placed all necessarv guards around the Episcopate. The old canon had been drawn up with great care; its cperat on has been tound beneficial in the case ol the resignation ot the Bishop ol Ohio. t Mr. Jamks S Smith, of Pennsylvania, said the error of ? old Canon was a serious one, and the canon rent rain ing the resignation ot a Bishop was unprecedented. Prior to his, resignations h*d taken place without injury to the Church. It a Bishop is iinwilln.g to pe.form an Episco pal uci, you cannot compel him; then why prevent h's resignation ! Neither can you prevent him, UDless some new canon be passed, and that is provided lor by the 4th section of th- proposed canon. A degraded Bishop can so rareiercise Episi opal functions, that a iretbyter or dained by him must stand; but by the proposed canons, a Bishop can be degraded. The old canon was parsed'to meet a particular case, that of Bishop Chase, und r exc,le nient, and it was not to be considered a precedent to guide theCi-urch. The dioce eof Pennsylvania was the only one in which its practical operation had been tested, and it was found bad. A long debate occurred on this subject, in which Dr T>ng, Rev. Mr. McCullough, Rev. Mr Van Ingen Mr Smith and others, part.cipated ; after which, the proposed substitute was negatived. Tho canon was then debated fully, and at the close it was adopted, as follows :? EPISCOPAL RESIGNATIONS. Wheress, the re,ignati?n of the Episcopal jurisdiction of a diocese is to be dscountenanced, but nevertheless as it may, under certain circumstances, he both necessary and desirable, it is hereby declared, that the Episcopal resignation of a diocese may take place under the follow in* regulations, viz : Section I. If during the session of any general conven tion, or within six calendar months hetoro the meeting of any general convention, a bishop shall desire to resign Ins jurisdiction, he shall make known in writing to the (louse ot Bishops such his desire, together with ihe rea *ou* moving him thereto,whereupon the House ol Bishop* shall have lull |K>wer and authority to investigate the whole case of tho proponed resignation, including not only the ficts aud reasons thai may be set forth in the an plication for the proposed resignation, hut any other tacts and circumstances bearing upon it, so that th > whole iub lect ef the propriety or necessity ol such resignation may be placed lully belore the House or Buhops Section II An investigation having thus been made the House ol Bishops shall have power to deci le on the ap plication, and by the vote ol a minority ol those preseut, to accept, or refuse to accept, such resignation ; and in all' cases of a proposed resignation, tha bishops shall cause their proceedings to be recorded on their journal ; and in case of acceptance, the resignation shall be complete when thus recorded ; and notice thereof shall be given to the House of Clerical and Lay Deputies. Section III. In rase a Bishop should desire to resign at any period not within six calendar months before the meeting of a G-neral Convention, he shall make known to the senior Bishop such his desire, with the reasons moving him thereto, whermpon the senior Bishop shall communicate without delay a copy of the ssme to every Bishop of this Church, having ecclesiastical jurisdiction to the Standing Committee of the Diocese in which the Bi?liop desiring to resign residrs; and at the samu time summon said Bishops to meet him in person, at a place to be by him designated, and at a time not less than three calendar months lrom the date of his summons; and should a numb r. not 1 as than two-thirds of all the said Bishops meet at tho time and place designated, they shall then have all the powers given by the previous sections of this Canon to the House of Buhops; and should a num ber less than two-thirds assemble, they shall have power to adjourn from time to time until they can secure the at tendance of two-thirds of all the said Bishops. Should a proposed resignation of a Bishop be accepted at any meeting of the Bishops for tha purpose held during * recess, then it shall he the duty of the senior Bishop to prononnce such resignation c?mn|ete, and to communi cate the same to the ecclesiastical authority of each dio cese, who shsll cause the same to be read to the several congregations therein. And it shall be the further duty of the senior Bishop to cause such resignation to be for mally recorded on the journals of the House of Bishors that may meet in General Convention next thereafter.

I regret much that you have given this complexion to the affairs ol the two countries. When men, by chance or Providence, have been elevated to the rule ol nations, and entrusted with the protection ol the best interests of the people, it must be considered a misfortune when they entail upon them calamities which their duties aa philan thropist* should teach them to avert. When belligerents, even in the most angry excitement ol feeling, are arrayed against each other, it is but proper that their chieftains should preserve towards each other that comity which might render each other approachable, and thereby avert great human stifle ring and the effusion of human blood. When war rages all ranks and condi tions are subject to its agitations and calamities Texas has already endured the extremeat agony, and will endea vorto profit by her ? xperience Against Inr you have again denounced war. We await the event. Kight years ago you were a suppliant, obtained your liberation without ransom, and acknowledged the Govern mtnt of Tixat. If Texas existed Men as a nation, her re cognition since that time by other powen, and her in creased commercial relations would well excuse your re cognition ol her sovereignty now. But, sir, von speak of your resources ?nd power.? Th?y were defied and triumphed over in 1830, and, if you invade Texas in 1844, you will find neither her power nor the succtss of her arm* less complete. I desire to know for what reason you have charged the autho! ities of Texas with perfidy ? flave they ev?r given to Mexico any pledge they have net redeemed 7 They have liberated her chiefs an4 soldiers taken on the field of battle without obligation so to do. They are of a race which permit neither their word nor their honor to be talsified. How has it been with Mexico ! The capitula tion of Fannin was disregarded, and hundreds massacred in cold blood. You.indeed, denied a cognizance of this fact, declared that you were implicated by the falsehood of Oen Urrea, and that if you ever returned to your coun try and came into power, yeu would execute him lor hi* duplicity. Have yon done it? You have power, but to what purpose? Of the inoffensive traders who visited Santa Fe and capitulated to your officers, what was the treatment 7 They wire slaughtered by the wayside when unable to march, and their ears cut ofl'and exhibi ted as evidences of their destruction?evidences indeed el harbarity not heard of among nations pretending to be civilized, since the ninth century ofthe Christian em!

In fulfilment of which they were soon after barhsrously deci mated, and the rtmainder ever since held in chains and prison ! They were also to be returned to their homes im mediately after their submission But every pledge given to them has been violated 1* this good faith 7 You likewise pledged yourself, solemnly, through Her Britannic Majesty's ministers to release the Taxan pris oners in Mexico, if those of Mexico remaining in Texas should be set at liberty, which was done on the part ol this Government, by public proclamation, and satecon duct offered them to return to their country. Have von performed your part of the agreement and your duty ? Are they free ? Will all this justify you in charging, through Gen Woll, either the Government or citizens of Texas with perfidy, or its executive with double dealing in diplomacy f I regret, sir, extremely, that it has been my duty to ad vert to circumstances which must be as disagreeable to you as to myst I' But you have invoked it.

Major Kdward B.

A friendly feelin , or rather, perhaps, a desire for com mercial intercourse, appears to be continually growing up towards Texas, in the north eastern part ofMexlco. It is said that 1,600 men (Mexicans) are now eugag d, as traders or escorts for their protection, in the trade with Texas; and it is ei.imated that ten times that number are interested, either as friends and relatives of the traders, or those who deal with and through them, in keeping tip the commerce be'ween the two countries Goods can be obtained frotn the towns of Texa* at from fifty to seventy five percent less than at Matamoras and Tampico. F?i instance, domestics, which can be had at one bit or less per yard in Texas, are held at half a dollar by the regular importers in Mexico, and other articles range in propor tion. It is natural, therefore, that a desire snould be felt by the people iut rested in keeping up the cheapest mar ket; and with such an extended frontier, the Oovernment of Mexico will find it impossible, eit'ier in peace or war, to break up the trade with this country. The superior advantages, in regard t* commerce and immunity from Government burthens, enjoyed hy the peopie of Texas are well understood in the northern and eastern States of Mexico; and influential men there not only discuss among themselvu* the policy of a political connection with Texas, but inquiries Hre frequently made of our citizens, and sometimes of our public authorities, a< to the disposition of Texas in regard to the matter Thu? far these nyerlures have been steadily declined, but the circumstances named, and the feeling evinced by many ol the lead ng men in those parts of Mexico contiguous to our border, go strongly to favor the opinion that Texas tvill find no difficulty iu extending her territory aa rapid ly as her interests and growing popula'ion may require Since the above was written the Republic arrived, bringing Galveston papers to the 2dth tilt The report of the election of Jones to the Presidency is confirmed The citizens of Galveston, without distinction af party, gave a pnblic dinner to Ci m Moore on the Jlst ult.

Dear Sir I havr arrived than lar on my re- ? turn from making a tour through the " southern ! tier of counties." To suy that I have been sur- j prised, will but illy express thefeelings with which : I huve viewed the richness, beauty, and fertility ol j this garden of the empire State. Immediately on ! the track of the New York and Krie Railroad, there is not so much to admire. But the towns, villages, and hamlets of the interior are charac terized by a neatness, order, industry, and pros perity?sure and advancing, which makes oue proud to call New York the Stale of his nativity. Wc know comparatively nothing of the peace, harmony, and social interchange of feeling, which enters into all ranks and conditions of life. There is a oneness of seniiment, so lar ss relates to all those elements iiecessurv to constitute and main tain a happy and contented state of society?there is a peculiar nir of affectionate concern and sym pathy to be found practically existing among ihe dwellers ol these beautiful hills and dales. They appear to know nothing of those discords and strifes, which, unhappily exist in larger communi ties. Esptcial'y may this be said of the farmers of Orange county. The mass of them ore hard laboring, honest, and worthy citizens; and they find no time for those petty quarrel* and neighbor hood gossip, which tend to vitiaie and corrupt the streams of social order Take them, all in all, they are just that class of men in whose hands the destinies of our couuly might be placed wilh per tect sniety. miles from this place, during the last two or three years, has lost much of thai spirit ol enterpiise for which it had so long beeu noted. The I'r jghling business, which was exiensively carried on in that village, has, to a great extent, been cut off by the quicker, and more feasible, route of the railroad. And, in fact, almost every orancii of interest has been more or less crippled by means of this road Within a few months past, however, the citizens appear to be turning their attention somewhat ex tensively to manufacturing ; and it is to be hoped that the plans now on foot for the revival of the several branches of trade, Will prove sllCCet-slul in politics, Newburgh may be sat down as de cidedly whig. Montgomery, halfway between Newburgh and this place, is a very pretty and thriving town Some year ago, there was an extensive fire there, which destroyed a large amount of valuable pro periy. The burnt district, however, is nearly built up with handso>ne and substantial dwellings and stores. The loss on this occasion fell princi pally on the Hon. Mr Borland, present Surrogate of the county. Montgomery is celebrated for its fair daughters, and excellent butter. The town it democratic. Middletown is the present termination of the New York and Erie Railroad. It was not ex tended to this place by the company, but entirely by the contributions of the enterprising citizens, m a cost of 6ome $i35,<X)0. Three >ears ago, the vil lage is said to have been vt ry small, und but little business, comparatively, was done, except by the tanners. Now, there is an air of wealth and busi ness, which cannot fail to strike the traveller im mediately on entering the town. There are, I should judge, some two thousand inhabitants. They have a large and well conducted Academy, tour Churches, a flourishing Lyceum, and Odd Fellows' Association, a Mechanics' Association, and numerous select schools. Ol course, th<* in habitants are public spirited and intelligent, f at tended a debate at the Lyceum last evenine, where the question relative to the justice of Dorr's imprisonment whs discussed. Divines, doctors, and lawyers took part in the debate, which cer tainly was ably and understatidingly discussed The president decided that " Gov. Dorr's im prisonment was ur.just." So far as relates to .he political complexion ot Orange county, it is, und always has be< n, demo cratic. There is hut very little excitement to be witnessed at any place in the county. But ihe lo cos appear to be confident of carrying it by 7<H) or WH> rnaji rity Mr. Wilkin, who resides ut Goshen, seven miles hence, is 11 very popular man, and is much respected by all paities, fie will bring out the whole strength ol the whig vote in November.
