An edition of fifty thou s nd has already been disposed of at thirty sevrn-Hiid-a-halt cents each, making an aggregate sum of $18,750, of which about #12,000 may be set down as profit. Not one cent of this has gone into t le pockst of Mackenzie, according to his own ac c .unt The discussion still goes on in the newspa pe ?? relative to the infamy of the publication and the tn inner in which Mackenzie got hold of the letters and the character of the whole transaction. But wlnle ihut goes on, no doubtjthe development of the m r.ds and principles of the New York i*>liticianst f democratic school which it discloses, is produ cing u great eii'ect in the community, almost as great ft't'nt produced by the famous " (rlentworth'Pa per. ? In the meantime we give the following siaP-m-nt from Mackenzie himself relative to the m itter, which was published tn one of the paprrsof yesterday, and also another statement from Mr Bo girdus.

L. M. Ai Mackenzie'* book has caused some talk and much comment, I consider it proper to state that in the attic of the- Uitom Housebuilding were a large number of boxes containing the accumulated papers ol the Custom House lrom 1793 to 1S I6 .o tnese papers releience was re quired occu .inmlly in the business of the uttice. and ow ing to ,e want oi regularity in tiling them, liequently papers required could not he found at ter searching box alter box toi la) s tn succession. 1 requested the keep er ol the archives to have all these papers arranged in pro ier foim in pigeon hole ca>es, and the cleiks iu that depaitment aie ) et engaged at that work. .Many of the boxes u re locked and the keys lost or mislaid ; such boxes 1 authorised the clerss to open by force, and to arrange tlie contents in the pigeon holes provided ? Wbil-t lutrihutiug these papers 1 was informed that they found some lelteit applications, 6tc., to Messis. Sw art w out and Hoyt, late collectors, to be appoint ed to otttce ; the?e pape s 1 requested the keeper to Secure, and not to allow the n to be examined or disturbed In May last, Mr. Van Ness informed me tli it it nad been intimated to hurt by a gentleman not counecteu with the < ustom House, that among the airlines ol the odice weie some important ieiieis a ldrcs-ed to Jesse Ho) t, t?i| .and suppo-ed to nave been lett tbeie by him accidentally. At his suggestion I asked the keeper what he knew ol the matter, lie -Mowed me a box, winch on a casual examination I touud to contain old law papers and some piivate conespuiideiica. appa rently ol a character not worth the expense ol taking away 1 told him to lock it up and maik it " ?/, . liny \ pru at' pupers," and let it remain Tnat box, I am indu ced to believe, had not been open many da) ? when , saw it, and l.pie-uine that the "applications loi ortl V mu t lnno bean found elsewhere, and possibly Makt-uzie ma) have diet oiered letters elsewhere in the bu,l ling. The. e aie a few hundred tons of old books, letters, ami pap -rs in the building, which have probably escaped even the searching jd opetisilles of Mr Mackenzie and other auti queues VVhethei all the letters in .Mackenzie* tiouk Were luund among the public papers of tne ' u-loiu House I am nimble to sa). but i have reason to believe thai tome of tne papers weie found there and Copied by luni It he took them from the Custom HoU'e. lie did so without tne know ledge, suspicion, or appiuhation of >lr \ an Ness, tne editors of tne foil's insinuation to the Coutisi) not withstanding Vour very obedient servant, C. 8 BOOARDU8. According to these accounts, it seems to be pretty certain tha' the character of these private papers was known to other paities before the publica tion. Mat kenzie himself, in Ins own statement, admits that he was appointed through the friend ship of the Tylers at Washington, and we have no doubt, notwithstanding his denial, that they had some intimations of this movement. The manner in which the letters were procured, and the mode of publication, are, however, matters of only very trivial interest to the public at large. We underMand that proceedings have been instituted tor the purpose of bringing the matter be fore the Grand Jury in relation to the appropriation of the letters by Mackenz e and their publication.? Yesterday Mr Matthew L. Davis was subptEnaed before one ol the police justices on the question,and it appeared that neither did Mackenzie know htm nor did Mr. Davis know Mackenzie. Other per sons, to the number of twenty or more, have also received subpronaes, and probably the whole matter will come up before a criminal court nl this city in a short time. In the meantime these developments are produ cing a great effect on the public mind So far as we are concerned, we have nothing to regret except having been tound in such bud company, and which unfortunate occurrence we will explain as satisfac torily to the public and to our own conscience, even is our confessor, Uishop Hughes, if he chooses, as we have the transactions with Mr. Marcy in 1832 It is true, according to the letters published with '..'LL..LBL 1 the signature ol J. G. Bennett, that in 1832, we were in great " distress." In fact we were all in distress." Martin Van Buren was " in great di? tress" for a five dollar bill loaned to some loatsr in New York. Mr. Butler was " in great distress" on account of the want of the stated preaching of the Gospel at Sandy Hill. Mr. Hoyt was " in great distress" on mauy accounts, but particularly be cause he was not appointed district attorney in New York, and until he was relieved by his appointment to the Collectorship. Stephen Alien was "in great distress" to get a bank for the benefit ol Tarni any Hall, while lie was professing to be anti-bank. Thaddeus Phelpa was " in great distress" about the free bank scheme ?I was also " in great distress" for two thousand five hundred dollars, without any prospect of receiv ing any assistance from my sinful associates of the locofoco stamp. 1 have got over that "distress," and the only distress I now feel is to have been caught in that bad company, and in which I shall take precious good care never again to be caught. We shall go on in the meantime and review the whole of the correspondence, for the benefit of the present age and all future time, and do justice to Martin Van Buren, John Van Buren,.and all the locofoco leaders, tor we think that amongst the lot tliTe are members of Congress, Judges, anil perhaps some Presidents of the United States, notwithstanding all that has been said. We again call upon Webb of the Courier to pub i lish our letters in relation to the Marcy movement ot 183*2, and clear our skirts and his own from all contamination. Mobs and Mormonism ?The recent popular out breaks?the awful deeds of violence and blood? which are daily perpetrated in Illinois, are disgrace ful in the extreme. When we look at this state of thincs in Illinois in conjunction with anti-rentism inihis Slate, the conduct of the anti-abolition mob in Kentucky, and various outbursts here and eveiy where,one would suppose that ourgovernment and the state of society amongst us were going backward. But it is not so Tnese local diseases correct them selves,and Hre inevitable in a free country,under a po pulartorm ot government There may be some slight injustice to individual rights in all these ebullitions and explosions in particular localities, but they hav a general eri'eci on the great masses of the people, winch is ot a salutary character, and so ttiey Work iheir own cure in process of time. This is seen al ready ,u ttie aim-rent districts. Reaction has be guu. Trie trieuds of law and order nave been alarmed and aroused. The absurd doctrines ot Greeley and his comnatriots, about the rights ol property, are now scouted by many who formerly were half inclined to swallow them. Throughout all the anti-rent region, the Tribune, and all such in ceudury and revolutionary prints, are execrated by the intelligent and orderly classes. Tne recent outbreak in Illinois should lead the in dependent press throughout the country, and all good citizens, to a united and vigorous effort against the spirit of disorganization and rebellion. Let all these attempts to persecute the Mormons, or any class of people, be at once crushed, and covered with indignant rebuke. Thk Episcopal Convention.?The session of this Convention yesterday was very interesting and amusing. Colonel Webb figured quite extensively on the occasion, and was one of the most conspicu ous representatives of the church militant. We give a full report of the proceedings in another portion of our paper. What a spectacle must such a convention as this present to tne gaze of the saints in heaven, as they look down on one of these sunny days from their thrones of blessedness! What successors are those assembled in St. John's Church to the apostles of Jesus Christ! Fighting about abstractions?" high'' and "low church"?and exposing all the delin quencies of a bishop in his behaviour towards his flock, they do anything but promote the cause of religion in general and Episcopal Christianity in particular. These squabbles amongst the clergy, and the strange develspnients of their morals, and repeated deleats in the conflict between carnal emotions and the love of (rod and practice of virtue, are leading multitudes to the conviction that that portion of the New Testament called " the gospels" should be taken as the alone rule of faith and prac tice, and that every man should become his own j parson, and avoid the associations of churches and ! priests and bishops, which lead, it appears, to such ! wicked and worthless fruits in too many instances. 1 UjrtVERSALITV OF Jol'RNAUSM?THE HERALD ALL over the World ?A singularfact, strikingly illus trative of the universality of the circulation of the Herald, was recently communicated to us by the Uev. Mr. O'Reilly, the talented and popular Catho lic clergyman of Troy. One of his parishioners , showed him a letter from a poor Irish female, living i among the mountains of Cavan, one of the most oh- , scure regions of the province of Ulster, in which I she bitterly complained of the unkind conduct of a brother in this country, and winding up with the threat that if he did not make speedy atonement for his past neglect and injustice, she would "put him in the Herald, and Mr. Rennett would be sure to see her righted." The universality of ourcirculation is well known. In the Sandwich Islands?in the most distant part of the Pacific?in China?all over Europe you can find the JVeie York Herald. It pierces even to the inte rior of the palace at St. Petersburgh. In all the towns of Germany? it every public place in Italy and France, the Herald is to he found, and now we see that it penetrates even to the hut of the peasant, amid the mountains of Ireland ! Such is the journalism of the present age Gouqh's ^statement?We give in another | column, a statement made by J B. Gough, relative to hid recent movements in this city. It corrobo. rates all that has been published about hint. The most important point, however, in the whole affair, the diugged soda water, he most clumsily passes over, us if afraid to touch it lor fear of a fresh extiile ration Instead of giving the name of the kee,>er oi die soda fountain, uud the exact spot where it was -i tu ited, he oniv states that he should recollect it, it h> should once more see it. This is true, for he wii' probably never put his eyes upon it again, if he evei has Th-t part o! the statement relative to drinking m the grocery store, confirms what an acquaintance of ours stated to us the day after Gough was found. This acquaintance saw hiin drink the brandv, and a pretty " stiff" horn" it was. It was taken when he was perfectly sane and sober. All that we have published and heard, is thus corroborated by Gough himself. Take the confession in all its parts, and 11 is nothing but a winning ap|>eal after a regular " spree," and not the straight forward statement that his friends advised him to make. Navai. Affairs?We have letters from the Coast of Africa,which state that two officers of the James town are to be court martialed. We suppose, how ever, that the Secretary of the Navy has to order such a procedure. The Court of Inquiry in the case of Lt. McLaugh lin, for transcending his power, and doing other things, as is charged, in Florida, is now in session in Washington. Our correspondent will send us the proceedings. It is to be hoped that the little spirt with Mexico will tend to rub the rust from the buttons of many oi our officers. Those asking furloughs should he cut short in their requeets. Giving officers three and six months' leave of absence after they have been on shore for one, two and three year", is an unnecessary tax upon the people, and ought not to be tolerated. All should he treated as i'urser Han dy has been. One ought not to be singled out, how ever, hi order to let the others escape. If one pleads sickness, let him be examined, like a leaking fri gate, and if found in good condition, as many are w ho obtain leave, let hint be sent to sea at once ? Our little navy would in this WBy become purified, and tilled with good anil efficient officers. The most effect way of keeping the rust from the officers, would be to limit their stay on shore to short periods. Theatrical*. Pari Tiicatri -Last evening v, aa one of the meat delightful of the uuon to thoaa who were fortunate enough to be at the Park. We had the pleaaure on the previous day of announolng the appearance of Mra Bland aa Pauline. To-night we hare had the double pleaaure of witneaaing it. Would that there had beeu twice the number to partake of it; for, we are foroed to admit that there w ere not a* many prevent at we were led tobeliere, from the recollection of the brilliant suc ceta of her prerioua appearance. Nevertheless, keeping the greet merit of the performance out of view, Uiere was e fair house, and to make amend* for any obaervable pa icity of number*, there wet extreme gratification ma nifested in the reception of thi* play. We muat alio add, that much accumen waa displayed in the bestowal of the plaudita, not one of which were tquandered, or uuaea aonably given. Thi* beautiful play we have frequently noticed, and have had occaaion to apeak of it* caat of character*, on the Park board* ; a* it ha* been, ao it was laat night, the oulj alteration being Mr. Baaa aa Col. Damaa, Mr. Bland a* Claude, and Mr*. Bland as Pauline. There ia a striking difference in the acting of both. In this play, from any we nave yet seen. Theie have been beautiful portraiture* lately given in thi* cityofthe two characters which form the soul of the piece : excellent as they were?whet we I have seen to-night will not flinch from comparison with | any of them. Mr. Bland might postibly afford to be in j the impassioned passages, a little more vehement; this. I however, ia hardlv worth mentioning, for a "perriwig pated follow" could not catch hold of this smoothnesa, ii i he labored lor a liletimo. Mr. Bland has only to see the propriety of laying on his pencil more boldly, and he can do it. As to Mrs Bland's Pauline, it was admirable, to warda the close particularly. Her strong antipathy to Beauataut?her mortidcation on finding the state ly palace by the Lake of Como, transformed into a peasant's cottage ; wounded pride of the heiress in stern contention with the gentle affection of the wife, and the instructive teachings of nature ; her resignation of Claude's as her own mother, and her naive disclosure to Col. Damas of her fidelity to Claude, in the last scene ; all these were painted with a truthfulness and taste, we never expect to see excelled. At present we have but room to say, that the applause was hearty and abundant. On the fell of the curtain, it Srew loud and long, and did not cease until Mr. and Mrs. land appealed before the audience, and received the assurance that their efforts were prized most heaitily We have great pleasure ia announcing Mrs. Bland's ap pearance to-night, when she sustain* the part of Julia in the " Hunuhback," another of her best characters. Bowery Theatre. ? The performance last evening was, as usual, highly creditable to the corjtt dramatiquet who received, throughout the entire of the evening the most marked applause from a bumper house. The "Black Rangers" was repeated, and was received with increased enthusiasm. Having already noticed the plot, its lead ing characteristics, which are drawn from the many soul stirring events conuected with our glorious revolution, we do not deem it necessary to enter into a minute criti cism, recapitulating the merits of the drama; suffice it to alv, that next to " Putnam." th:- " Black Rangers" bids fsL to have a large run, and will draw, doub'less, exten sively upon popular favor. There is a strong analogy in some of its lea.liog features between the two, placing in vivid portraiture beloie an American public, those bold and dai lug feats of ai ma that distinguished the leading nei oes o: tue revolution, such as must awaken a feeling of nationality iu the breas' of every American patriot, and make him feel proud of his country. Captain Tracy's laiiug feat ou his beautiful charger Pocahontas, forcibly reminds those who are familiar with " Putnam," ot a si milar danng feat ou his well-known Black Vulture. The plot was well sustained, an 1 the entire performance passed off with eclat. The alter piece, "Robin Hood," wound up the amusemeuts of the evening The cast of characters was respectable. Mr. Scott's Robin Hood was well sustained, showing a correct couception of the cha racter of the bold and reckless outlaw, (.'lark's Kdwin was also well sustained. Castle Qardkn.?The New Yorkers are patrons of real merit?were it not so. Castle Garden would not be nightly filled as it is by a highly fashionable audience to listen and laugh at the funny conceptions of the Bur lesq: e Opera Company, who sing all the music of the original with an adaptation of words and acting that does not fail to drive away for the time the little cares of hu man life. Last night they presented " Shin-de-heel-a," a burlesque upon Cinderella. Previous to this a vocal con cert was given by the whole company. To-night we have the same bill. N'iblo's Garden.?Mis. Mowatt and Mr. Crisp had a full house la?t night. They performed in the comedy o the "Lady of Lyons, the one in which Mrs. Mowatt firs made her appearance in public. Of the beauties ot that piece of acting we need not speak, as they have already been dilated on fully. Mr. Crisp was most happy in his his performance of Claude. To-night they perform iu the play of "The Wife."" Palmo's Opera House.?The Hcrenaders still draw crowded and fashionable houses nightly. We have so ' often pronounced eulogiums on their performances, that 1 we can do no more than to again recommend those who I have not hoard them, at once to repair and hear their sweet dulcet voices. A Mr. Andorfer is exhibiting an optical gallery in Sa lem, much to the delight of the good folks (here. The Swiss Bell Ringers are drawing crowded houses in Boston. Burton announces Mr. and Mrs. Kean to appear at his Theatre in Baltimore, on Monday night next. Jim Crow Rice is in this city, returned alter a success ful tour at the West. Sporting Intelligence. Trotting at rnt Union Counnc, L. 1.?Yesterday there was a very numerous and respectable attendance, to witness the following sport over this track. It cer tainly was tho best affair of the season, or forth* twelve months past. The day was most propitious, the track alt the way round in capital order?it never was bettor.

The others short ly alter went forth, la the secoud lieatDutchess came in second, but in consequence of a complaint of loul driving on the part of the driver of Dutchess, (W. Wheelan) who came in first, tho heat was given to Kipton. In the fourth heat, a similar complaint was made, and after some consideration, the ju igei luled that Duchess wa> distanced.

Abolition IIiot on the Atlantic.?We under stand that Captain JuiJkins, of the steam ship Cam bria, one of the lioston and Liverpool mail packets, on her lam trip to England, had a negro named Douglass, among the passengers. When hall way over the Atlantic, Captain J. brought Douglass for ward on the quartei-Jeck, and called the passengers o{ether in order to have an abolition meeting ? This step, of course, lead to,difficulty, and as the ne KM abused Am'-nca and the Americans, there arose a general uproar. The ladies were much alarmed, and had the Captain persisted in his abolition efloris th ?re would been a serious riof ia the midst of the ocean's roar, and the negro tossed to the sharks.

One of the beneficiaries of this fund had deceased since the last Convention. , _ , The Report ofthe Committee for the 1 romotion o Religion and Learning in the State of New York, and ihe distribution of the Educational Collection was then read, and it stated that during the past year seventy-five Churches had contributed $628 62, had been ex pended in the support of students in the Theological Se miliary, who were candidates for orders in the diocese, at an expense of not more than $310 each lor lour stu dents. . . _ , . The Committee on tho Theological Seminaries report ed the filling up of two vacunries caused by the deaths of Dr. MUnor and Thomas L. Ogden, Esq , by the election of the Rev.J. H. Pi ice and Johu W.

Ihe Treasurer's report was then lead showing the lecoipts and expendituiei to balance within 64 cents, ihe sum re ceived and expended lor the contingent expenses ol ihe (Uocese, was about $2,200. The Missionary Committee reported 26 missionary stations and 13 missionories, Balance on hand last year >375 33 Receipts during the year 2,o?4j>u $2,920 83 j Expenditures Hl $498 02 Between the readier of these reports, the President arose and said, that according to the rules, the only per sons who were entitled to seats in the Convention were clergymen belonging to this diocese, but not of the Convention, clergymen of the diocese, professors and students of theolugy in the Protestant Kpiscopal Church, and persons holding trusts under the Convention. The previous day many who did not come under any of the above denominations had introduced themselves to the manifest disconiloit, if not displaced nt, oi those who had a right there ; he trusted they would see the neces -ity of wi'hdiuwing. Another subject which he would a ivert to, was the clamoring speakers down bv cries ot rder ; the proper plan was to appeal to the Piesiilent who would decide whether the speaker was iu order oi not. A Mvmbkii then asked how, in the absence of the Bishop parochial reports could be presented Dr. (Via read a canon of the c' urch, showing that w hen there was no Bishop, they were to be presented to the President i'he Bkcretabt then read the canon, (the 7th of 183A.) heating upon this subject, which showed such to lie the rule, but lie was subsequently infoimed this canon hao neon lepealed by the tub uf Is4l. A Mtusi a bete said that as the church at largo wa much interested in this, and it was of the utmost impor tance to ita prosperity that these reports *lu uld be mad, correctly, moved the following resolution i Resolved, That the jrarochial reports ot th different churches be presented to the Presuent uf the Conven tion, for the usual disposition of thn same This resolution was referred to the Committee on the State of the Church The report of the Committee on the rules of order si then taken up. [ \t this stsge of the proceedings there' was so much talking anil moving about that the reporter fouud it im possible to hear a conversation that took place between John A. King, Ksq. and another member ] At the reading of tule No, 3 some discussion took place, and it was moved that the word " disability" should follow the word inability, in the present rule, making >t read as follows: ' In case of the absence ot the Bisnop, or his inability or disability to act," &c. The house divided on the subject. A reverend gentleman wished to he informed if the house was to be considered organized, before the Secre tary and the two members who had been appointed to examine the certificates of lay delegates had concluded their labors: it occupied a great deal of time, and he thought that if the house was not to he considered as organized till that was done, great delay would ensue. Mr. Haioht explained, that if any delact appeared in the certificates, they were laid aside and reported on? ( and he did not think the present mode occupied more time than any other they could adopt. A member.snid that lie had been informed that, out of all the certificates presented to the committee, only nine were regularly made out. Mr. Haioht said he presumed that applied to the want of endorsement on their backs. It wss then moved lor the adoption ol a rule for the consideration of miscella neou* business on the Second day. Some discussion took place on this point, in which Chief Justice Jones took a prominent part; but we re gret that the honorable Chief Justice could not be heard at the reporter's desk The Hon. Lutikb Biuntsn seconded the adoption ol the proposed rule, which would not infringe on, but merely tie in accordance with the lights of all delibera tive bodies, who are entitled to consider any miscellane ous business The practice of all such bodies, is to con sider that all unfinished business has the precedence of all other on the following day The proposed amend ment is only the declaration ol a uniform practice. He i hoped the rule would lie adopted. Rev Mr. Jsir asked that it should not require a majori ty of two thirds lo introduce miscellaneous buiiness on the second dey. This motion was carried. Dr Tisii proposed that, in section IV. of the rules, it should be amended to read, instead of " immediately af ter the organization ol the Convention, a President shall ba electodby ballot from among tha clergy," as follows: "immediately a Presidant shall be eleotea." This resolution was not carried In section X , which reads as follows: " When a quea tion is beiore the Convention, no motion shall be receiv ed but to lay it on tbn table?to postpone It indefinitely? to puetnooe it to h certain time?to comiult it -or to amend it which oiotiom (ball have precedence in the order named But a motion to itrike out the word 'ie solved' slu.ll hare precedence of a motion to amend, and if carried, shall be equivalent to a rejection of tba reso lution." Hon. Luther Braoi?h wished to know if the motion to postpone indefinitely, meant without debated He ob jected to that.aud hoped it would not be adopted. A Member here said that if this Convention wished to hare those resolutions voted on, he would saggest that the speakers should speak up and be beard b r the au dience. Dr. Mc Vic a* a wished the original motion to prevail; it did not reject a question in debate, but merely laid it on the table till a more convenient time. Hon. John Di ss hoped the rule would hi* amended. Chief Justice Jones wished the motion ai it stands to prevail. lion John Dukr rejoined, and urged the amendment He thought it a gag law, and he wished to avoid auy im plication on? A Mkmuer here wished to know if tbe rule only ? Mowing a member to speak twice on the same apbject was the rule of the Couvouiion. Tha President replied that till other rules were adopt ed. that one was in lorce. Dr. McVicesh rose, and commenced speaking. (Cries ?it" Order, order.'*) He said, however, such debate was allowable. Several members here rose. \lr. President - Order, order Mr John A. Hamilton finally propose 1 an amend ment, that " without the discussion of the merits of the original question, it should tie decided without debate by a vote of two-thirds of the members present." He held that it was not only the right of the majority to -how why they differed, hut their duty also. He knew the means the majority would take to resist motions without debate, and thus stifle them. Tbe Pkesidknt here called him to order, if he imputeu improper motives. Mr. Hamilton did not mean to imnuta them. Another mode of resisting discussion was calling speakers to or der; if tho gontlemun in the chair is disposed to muzzle debate by deciding parties to tie out of order, there must id to r ' " ' he an end to debate. lie merely introduced this hypo iheticalty; he did not impute such conduct to the present President. A Mi.mukr moved laying this subject on the table to hear tho report of the tollers After reading the report of the tellers the debate was resumed ltev Mr. Jav, Hon. John Dukr, and others took a part in the debate. Mr. John A. Kino wished the sense of the house to he taken, which was done, and it was decided by the Pr^st dent that the moss had it. At this stage there was great confusion; finally those who approved of tho amendment were directed to rise The vote on the twothirds amendment was then taken by counting the members, and there were declared fot it, 163 ; against it, 183-thus the motion was lost. The reading of the rules was then continued, and on arriving at the following : - "A motion to lay on the table shall be decided without lebate." Mr. Di'ca proposed that the words "shall always be in order" should be inserted, instead of "bedecidoo without debate." A lengthy discussion ensued on thi> point. and when the question u a was decided it -hould remain as it originally stood. Much debate ensued on the nineteenth article, and the following substitute passed? Instead of "In taking tbe vote by orders,the names ofthe Lay Delegates ot the several Churches shall be calleo individually, and the vote ot the Church which they ie present shall he recorded according to the vote of the majority present." '? it shall he tne right of any member of a delegation who shall di-sentfrom the vote of his fellow delegates to have his vote placed on record in the minutes." The remainder of the rules were adopted. Tha house then adjourned till seven o'clock in the evening. EVENING SESSION. At seven o'clock tbe Convention was called ta order, and the minutes ofthe morning session read and approv ed. It wns moved and seconded that 1500 copies of the lournal he printed under the direction of the Secretary ?carried. And also an additional number of the Consti tution and Canons. John C. Spencer, tho Chairman of the Committee ofthe 30 to whom was referred the reso lutions passed by the Church of Ascension, and who were to take into consideration the state of the Diocese, and report what means were proper to pursue in the present emergency, rose and read the report of the majo rity on the subject, which is as follows : majority report. The Committee to which was referred the report of the Trustees of the Kpiscupal Fund, the proceedings of tirace Church, Jamaica, and certaiu resolutions ottered by the delegates from tbe Church ofthe Ascension, New V ork, and which Committee was also instructed to take into considei-atiun the state of the Diocese, and report what measure, if any, is necessary or expedient for tho Convention to adopt at this time, respectfully report: Tho report of the Trustees of the Kpiscopal Fund pre sents two distinct subjects for the action of the Conven tion. One of them, which the (Committee propose to con sider first, relates to tho act of incorporation of the Trus tees, which passed the Legislature ot this State at tha la -t session, and a copy of which is submitted by them. The act appears to he well adapted to the object, and the Committee nominated to this Convention do accept tbe same, ami do direct the transfer ofthe funds in the hands of the Trustees to the Corporation created by that act A resolution for that purpose is herewith submitted. The other subject referred to by the Trustees is the disposition of the income of the disposable fund in their hands, which accrued since the 3d day of January last amounting to ?1766 70, and the payment of which they have withheld lroin Bishop Onderdouk, in con*equetice of the sentence of suspension by the Court of Bishops, as the application ofthe income of this fuud forms io part ofthe system of measures recommended by your Com mittee. the disposition which they propose to make of it will appear in a subsequent part of this report. Connected with this subject is a lact which is infera ble from the present repent of the Trustees of the Kpis copal Fund, as well as from those which have been made for the last four or five years, which is that the pledge given by the Convention of this Diocese, iu 1836, ann renewed in lt-38, that the income arising from a principal sum of $80,000, should be applied to the suppoit of the Bishop, has not been fulfilled. The Committee have not had time to make the necessary examinations, which would enable them to state.with accuracy the exact amount of these arrears; but it is believed they tiavi exceeded $8u0 in each year, for the last four or five years. There is no difficulty io ascertaining the precise amount; time only being necessary to compare the re ports of the Trustees. The Commit'ee ate unanimously end decidedly of opinion, that these arrears shonl t, witnout delay, be made up to Bishop Oudeidonk, upon the principle that he was entitled to the tiill income ot $90,000, irrespective of donations or provisions from other sources, at tbe rate of 7 percent por annum, to the 3d day of January, 1844; and they bete with report a lesolulion, instructing the Trustees of the Kpiscopal Fund accordingly. According to the instructions of the Convention, the Committee have taken into consideration the state of th> Diocese. They ami the whole Diocese now practically and mournfully' realise the solemn truth ot tne maxim, 'hat there can ho no church without a Bishop The Churches, Societies, and individuals of our Communion are daily suffering for the want of Kpiscopal acts, otn children cannot be confirmed, our chuich edifices cannot he consecrated, ministers cannot be installed and set tled, clergy men cannot bo ordained?in fine, the flock i without u shepherd, a condition of things which no wotd can magnify. Kvery day, during which this condition i? allowed to exist, increases and multiplies the embat ments and difficulties ot the Diocc-e. Our membeis, u is apprehended, insteud of increasing, as of late years will rnpidly d diminish, from the desertion of those who are disappointed in finding the oruer, peace, harmouj slid efficiency which they nad expected in our t ommu nion Very obvious then does your Committee conceive to be the dot) of the Convention to provide all the rebel in its power lor this unhappy state of thing* a* soon a possible. It is very true that under our constitutions -slid canons the legitimate powers ol the Convention ti provide a remedy, are vety few unit tempotar). an. that ultimate and permanent reiiel can only tie found in the uction ol the (ieneral ?

The meaauies of rebel which the Committee leiton mend to the i oiventiwnaie the follow iug : In the li place, the expies-ion of an opinion that the proceed,rg ?it the Standing Committee in obtaining from otnei li hop- acta ol Episcopal authority for this diocese, wen justified hy Ilia Canons of the Church, and were high! commendable , that the Committee siioul I continue n its own name and authority to provide lor the want* u the diocese, ro long as the pieseni state of things con tinues. hy inviting the |ieiformance ot such Kpiscopu cts as may be neco?sai) w ithin the diocese or lor it hy Uithojis ot tlie I lunch, and that the expenses ul sum s?ivices should be befiayed out ol the income ot th Ei iscopal fund, and to stieng'hen the Standing Cuinmii tee, and make it moie clean) their duty to act m tlo manner pioposed in the existing emergency, hy ccttaii amendments to the 10th ol our Diocesan Canons, By these means, it ia hoped our immediate and mos< pressing wants can be supplied tempotarily h) other U? ? hops of the Church But hm already lernaiked, the ft no1 and permanent remedy must como fiom the (leiciai Convention, and that w hich y otirCommittee consider tin most speedy, the most etft'-acioiis, and the most in hai mony with our institution, consists in obtaining the enactment ol such Canons by the (lenaral Convention u arc adapted to the case of a suspended Bishop and will allow the election of another with full Episcopal au thority. We cannot make room for the rest of tho report at presont. but give the substance ol the resolutions which accompanied it- 1st resolution - accepting the Act ol In corporation. 'i Tho Trustees he directed to pay the Funds to the Trustoes incorporated 9. Directing the Trustees of the Fund to state the arrears of tho salur; dun the Bishop Tho Hon. Johi* C. Srxwcra sold that ho understood that thorc was a report prepaied hy a Minority Commit tee, who disagreed with the majority, and ho would move that the report of tho minority ho now road. Dr. WuiTXHOt'sr: asked leave to present tho report ol the minority. Par?ir>r*T?Is tho House ready to receive the report ? ,/lyr hy the whole House except otio member; who lustily cried out No. Or Wiiitkiioi sr then read the fallowing report of tin minority : ? MiwoaiTt airoar ox rni sr?T0 or Titr Dionrsir. The undersigned minority of the Committee to whom was referred tho secret papers relating to tho lit lie* B T. Onderdonk, depart so entiiely front many ol thr views expressed, ami tho measures recommended by the majority, that they are constrained to ask (ho Indui gence of pre anting their srpaiate views. Without attempting to express at length their objec. lions to tho course adopted for the action of tho Conven tion by said Committee, the minority would hriofly state that they felt unwilling merely in the form of a mere truism to affirm anything on the validity of the sentence of the court in the possible relation orit to any other tribunal for revision or affirmation. The minority are also unwilling to aftirm tlsat the lit Rsv. B. O., whatever may ba their individual opinion, U the existent Biibopef the Dioceie. The minority were unanimously and earnestly of the opinion, that all arreare of ealary of the Rt. He* H O up to Jan 3, 184o. ehould be at once faithfully paid, ao ?ording to the pledge of the Convention, allowing to the 'iocetan for the time being, the intercut of the principal "? alio hold f a nn oi $90,000 They aliohold that from lomesource or ? 'ier, the church of this Dioceie should make honorihle p.ovision for the comfortable maintenance of the Bishop, hi the event of his retirement from the office. But they are unwilling to recommend that uuy part of the episcopal tund hitherto appropriated, should be aliena ted from the Kt. Kev. Bishop, if lit he a Bishop ; and su long as he continues to he the actual Bishop of this Oio ces - or that if he be not so, that any arbitration portiou o the income of that should be diverted from the specific object, the support of the episcopate of tliii Diocese. And further, that in no form an.i in no ground, could they join in recommending alteiatious of the canone, in structions of delegates, or any measures having fur their object the procuring an assistant, or sufliage Bishop for that Diocese. Thus recording their dissent from the whole tenor of the insjority. the minority are hound brie 11 y to express their own view*. Hai all the questions involved in the seveiai resolution^ the repeit just received, the mi nority consider that the differences of opinion are too great in this convention to allow the suggestion ol auy action, or any ftrm of expressing that action, which can ne expected to uuite a sutticieut number for su authoritative result. But the minority do believe t'ist there is a conviction in the hearts of the larger portion of this Convention, that the volunu y rrtignation of the Bishop would conduce to the poaco, purity and influence of the Church, the best interests and ifignity of the suspended Bishop. They feei assured ihst no power exists in this body directly or individually to require such a resignation, but that as the ropieienta tiVes of the Church, regarding with fi lelity its s icred trusts?in a spirit which has ever been loyal and true to its diocesan and appreciating that there may ba in his t>re ist the most powsrful sttuggle between the desire of ?lis heart lor retirement, anltho duty be owes to then fire with which he has been invested. It is competent for this Convention to repress, with iust grief, in heartfelt j sympathy with the suspended Bishop, in deepest i ? egret lor this fatal sundering of the ties that have bouud them to him?their solemn conviction that the effect ol the late trial and sentence has been, is, an I will continue to be, such as to render injurious to the church ii this Diocese any resumption of tlis ofli ie of Bi iti ip. j and the sacred functions thereto pertaining, under any probable condition ol the removal of the sentence in hi11 own personal contrition and devout life We feei that ?uch sentiments, tenderly expressed by a body In whoso affectionate support and sole continued interest the Bishop has evary reason to confide, will have on his mind their influence, and contribute to guide a course of aetionin whii n he will indeed act independently, and in view of iiis weighty person <1 responsibilities, but will he aided in determining what sacrifice the edifying and well governing of the church may demand for him, and in what attitude lie can best hope to show forth lor the future "an example of good works unto others," that the -idvorsary uiey be ashamed,having nothing to say ogaiust him. Re-olved, That thia Convention with bitter sorrow for the exigency which lenders necessary the expression of such convictions, and in full recognition of the iudepeu lent responsibility ot the Bishop, for any aause ol action he may see fat to adopt, do hereby express their solemn belief that tne effect of the tiial and sontonce of the Rt. Itev Bishop Onderdonk, lias been, is, and will continue o he sucii us to render injurious to the church in this diocese, any resump'ion ot the ofllce of Bishop, and to the -acred functions thereto pertaining, under any future probable con litiou of the removal of the seutence or nis own personal contrition and devout lile. John A. Kinu then moved that the report of the majo rity ba laid on the table, and that the Convention take up the minority report. Jxo C. Stunt kh said that the motion was a most extra ordinary one. and that it was not dehataahla; that a Com mittee had been appointed to report, and Several members rose to address the Convention.when Mr. Kiog hoped tho gentleman would withdraw his pro position.^ SvKIVCKm?jrenrw it-lrenew it, Sir.

President's hammer going violently, and drowning the voices. , Judge Durn would like to know if the Chairman of the Committee of tho Vlajority consents that the majori ty report be laid on the tabls, and the minority report debated If they consent, tho Convention must take that course; but if it wore the individual motion ol tho Chairman, he would vote against it. John C. SrtNcta hoped that the usual course would be taken; he was surprised at the motion of the gentlc-J m Tho President thea asked if the house were ready for the resolution, accepting the act of the Legislature con stitutinglhe Trustees ofthe Bishop's fund a body politic Judge Dleh was not ready for the motion, but propp ed that the two reports be printed this evening, and tha the Convention adjourn till to-morrow morning at tei * CA?member objects, as there are a number of gentle man present who have come from a distance, aud win must be liome by Sunday; and unless they can get horn, hv tliatday great inconvenieuce will be occasioned ti many. He would therefore urge that the subject be pro ceeded with to-night. . A member enquired if this act of incorporation wa procured under tho direction ol tho Convention. \ es Judge Du nn.-The act says, that the fund in questm must be applied to the support ol the Episcopate of thi diocese lie *ould like to enquire how Isi this act co responds with the design f..r which this fund was ong naiiy intended, tor, if it varies, ho would object to its si CJno'c" Ssbnceh.?It is difficult to answer the gentl man s question-but be entertains no doubt on the mi ject himself. .... . j .1 Judge Dukr presumes that tho 1 rustee who drew li resolution is capable of giving the information. Ths resolution was then read accepting the act of i corpoiation, and pnssed unanimously. The next resolution which was attached to the repo Ih it the Trustees ol the Episcopal Fuu<l be directed settle the arrears of the salary due the Bishop upon t piinciple that he is entitled to the interost ot *90.iM0 Mr Kktchum would make a veilial amendment to t resolution, where it speaks of paying to the Bishop, tl it should tead pay to the Right Rev. T. Ouderdouk Bishop of this Diocese " The following i e olution was then offered : ? Resolved, That the proceedings ef the Standing Co : mittee were highly creditable, and 6iat the expenses paid out of the Episcopal Fund. Judge Osxlkv did not intend to make any reimar on the subject, but he wished to propose a b ter remedy?that the I'biid cause (where th is do Bishop,) provides that an invitation may given by the standing committee to other Bishops. 1 question lies in a literal construction of that can where it says there is no Bishop, it means there is Bishop catiahle of performing his functions ; if we hi power of passing this resolution empowering the cr mittee to call in the aid of other Bishops, this commit has the power to place the diocese under the power some particular Bishop. Let us select a particu Bi>hop He then offered a resolution, that this diocese placed under the full charge of the Bishop of Psuns vania. [Laughter by the wliole house] John C. FruNcra concurs in ths construction of canon it there lie no Bishop, but there is another rule plicwble to the case?reads the second section of tne i.on of 1B39, and contends that this canon provides fo different case altogether, it supposes an actua' vican which is not the case in this diocese, and he think would he hazardous to put such a violent construe upon it; he would rather repose in the committee tne lection of a Bishop than ior ourselves to uudertak select one. Judge Oski.kv considers tho diocese vacant, snd in the language of tha canon there is no Bishop; the no use in evading the question, it mu-t be met. President Are you prepared lor the resolution 1 Judge Dukr thinks the canon looks to an adust ?ancy in the diore-e, and he would prefer that the [ rention would wait one or two > ears, when the es iit'tit woul I subside, before a Bi-hop should he alec1 1 itiri pioposed in the mean time to put the dioce-e uud j irovisioiinl Bishop; he thought timt the diocese iJ ant, and that it mud continue so for a lengih <>f t> I ud that it is tho duty of this Convention to provide ie vacancy Judge Duer then moved that the re 'ion he eft in blank vii mbi.r?I'hiiiks !'?? hlank the best part of the i ition (Laugher) The resolution was carried in lottsly.
