Mr Harrison moved that the rules of order be ?uapended, ao that he might offer a resolution, that the present trustees of the Theologlcul Seminary, representing this diocese and resident therein, be continued in office, and that the standing committee report the names of other suitable persons to fill yacsnclea to be elected lor nomination to the approaching General Convention. An amendment was offered to it by Mr. Betta,ot Newburgh, but after a little debate, both were laid upon the taMe The committee on the incorporation of churches read their report, from which we learned that the following named ohurches were incorporated since the last convention, via Church of the Holy Martyrs. an4 tha Church of the Advent, New York; Church of St Savior, Newtown ; Trinity Ckuich, Haverstraw ; Church of the Holy Martyrs, fcjisex county ; Church of th?

(Laughter ) Ou motion, the report of tho majority of the committee was being read, wlvn Mr. Jay moved that the reading be suspended and tbe whole subject laid on the table, In order to allow the minority opportunity to print their report, which wan carried. The following is a copy of the majority report: ? Report to Iht Convention of 1816, laid on the tablt until the next Convention. The committee to which was referred tbe subject of tho admission of St. Philip's, and other oolored congregations, to a representation in the convention of this diocese, report,. That, in their view, the question referred to them Is one exclusively relating to the temporal government of the diocese, and is wholly unoonneoted with the religious rights or duties of the applicants The convention Is but a part of what may 1>? called theoivil machinery, instituted by human wisdom, lor the purpose of regulating, tbe society, by which, and for whose benefit, it was established. It is no more a part of our church in this country, In a religious vl*w, than ar? the eivil establishments aDd the connection with the government In Kngland, part ol the church there. In both countries the arrangements for the administration of the Binmnimt ?i ih church are the result of experftnoe and adaptation to circumstance*. Among the consideration* of expediency, which any body of uieu uniting together for a common purpo.-n would deem the most important, nuat be that of determining with whom they would associate, and who should be permitted to participate In the government of the faciety. Thui, for reason* of expediency, female*, however worthy, are by our cannn* excluded from being repre?entaiive* In cur convention*, and are by law, Incapable of being incorporated a? member* oi cburche* Candidate* lor orders, are, by a i canon ot the general convention, prohibited from b?ing member* of that body. These Instance* are sufficient to Illustrate the principle* on which our I church organization* are founded, and to ehow I they are entirely distinct from the religion* right* and *piritual privilege* of thoee who, lu a spiritual view, ara
| member* of our churche*. If it be an incident to church i mcmb'-rxhlp to be represented in the oouncti* of the church, then have we, in common with all Christian denomination*, from the time of the apostle*. unjustly and tyrannically deprived female member* of *ur.red right*. When society i* unfortunately divided Into cl?**e?? when aome are Intelligent, refined, and elevated, in tone and character, and other* are ignorant, coarte, and debased, however unjustly, and when such piejudioe* exist between them, a* to prevent social Intercourse on equal term*,it would seein inexpedient to encounter such prejudice*. unnecexsarllv. and to endeavor to comDel the one class to associate oo equal term* la consultations on tbfl affairs of the dioewe, with those wbom they would not admit to their table*, or Into their family circles-nay, wbom they would not admit into their pews, during riubllo worship. If Christian duty require that wo should n all respect* treat equally, all persons without reference to thftlt social condition, should we not commence the discharge of that duty In our Individual and social relations? And Is not the tact that ws have never so regarded our duty?or have wlfully violated it, su indent evidence of the existence of a state of sooiety among ua that renders an amalgamation oUunh discordant materials impracticable, if not haserdous to our unity aud harmony? We deeply sympathise with the colored race in our country, we feel acutely their wrongs ?and not the least among them, their social degrade-^ tlon. But this cannot prevent oar seeing the tact, that* they are eoeiallj degraded.and are notr? garded a* proper I aaeoclatee for the claaeoi persona who attend our convention!.

The efforts of sealou* phUauthroplkt* to break down the barriers which ou^tom has interposed, and which have so loug existed between the colored and other raves; and against the laws of society, aud the sentiments aud feeling* of the community, to compel an unuatural and forced equality, have hitherto been attended with results quully unfortunate to the peculiar object* of their solioitu<Je,and to the great interests and beneficent institution*, in connection with which such effort* have been made. They hare been dlieoted to our common school*, and not satisfied with tha abundant provision which has in many place* been made for the eduoation of colored children, their special friends and advocate* have Indited that they should be admitted to the schools of the white children, and have thus chused dissension and oonfliot. to the great injury of those institutions; while feelings of sympathy and oommioaeration have been too frequently converted into disgust and anger ? F.ffort* of a similar character, and (or the same purpose, have been made to give position In our churches to oolored people, which would compel association and intercourse with them. It i* obvious that inch movement* are but incipient ateps to ulterior object* in relation to the vexed and Irritating sul^ect of slavery. Beginning nuu nuu a|/p?>cuhi/ juib |'i UjiWBtiluun 1 l/H }>QC LI LJ ? the abstract rights of thin portiou of our population, their profeesed friends aud advocates hare advanced, step by step, uutil they bave prepared the way to agitate the bold question of the Christian oharactor of those whose sentiments do not accord with their own. The rending aaun&er of churches-the disruption of aocletiu* ?bitter animosities, and ail manner of uncharltablenru have been the invariable results By the wile and prudent counsels of the father* of our church, aur denomination baa neon hitherto happily free from the agitation of the?e and kindred questiona? luch a* temperance, or abatinence from liquor* and wine ?Md the oomequencea bare been peace and quiet among ouraelvea, and the reapect of othera. An lnatanoe of thia caution la foroijhed In the caae of St. Philip'* Church, whoee application to bo represented In the con entlon la now under conalderation. It appear* from the minutr* of the atanding committee of thla diocese, that In March, 1810, on the application of the lamented Biahop Hobart to that oommittee for advice in relation to the admUalon of a colored person a? a candidate for holy order*, they unanimously advised hi* admission, upon the distinct understanding, that In the event of his being admitted to orders, be should not " be entitled to a aeat in the convention, nor ahould the congregation of whloh he may have the charge, be repreaented therein " It U underatood that these condition* were approved by til') Bishop, and were assented to by the applicant and the congregation. And although that churoh baa been organised, and In exlatence for more than a quarter of a century, It has until now abided by the terms thua settled The preaent appUcauta, it la presumed, were not aware of thvse arrangements, aa It la not to be auppoaed that they would intentionally be guilty of a violation of good faith. Thus, for this long period has this queatiou been actually and peaceably aettled, I and remained undisturbed. | The legal, moral and equitable right of the convention to determine what churches It will admit into union, so aa to entitle them to a representation in this body,seems to j our committee unquestionable. The fourth aanon provide* certain indispensable conditions to entitle any church to admission?but no where is It declared that these are the only conditlona? and the invariable practice of the conventirn In taking the vote upon the admission of any church, abows that it has Deserved to Itself the right of judging of the expediency of the measure, after all the former requisites are compiled with ? Otherwise the report of the committee, certifying to the faot of such compliance, would be in itself conclusive The provision in the tame canon, requiring the preliminary approbation of the bishop, or of the standing committee "of the incorporation of auoh church," relatea only to the anparate and Independent existence of the eofegT?xati*n aa a corporate body, and not to 1U union with, or representation In. this convention. Besides, the Very requirements of the canon?that churched shall be politically incorporated, before admission into union with th* couvuntion, shows conclusively that the right Of adiniavion ii subject to regulation nod therefore (hat such question in one purely of expediency, Md not one of Christian privilege or right. Ciifi may easily be conceived, and such hare actually oocurred, where it would not anly be highly Inexpedient, but grossly unjust to existing churches, to admit into union new applicant*. Various circumstances, more or less important, will necessarily enter into the consideration of the convention iu determining auoh a question. In the short time allowed the committee to oonsider the subject, and to express their views, they have been unable to give such a full exhibition of all the consideration* which present themselves as they would have desired. Tney think, however, that they have said enough to cause reflection, and to show how full of difficulty would be the adoption of the principle in relation to St i'hiiip's church, or any other colored congregation of admitting their representatives to seats in this convention It once here, th?v would be entitled to all the consideration, and to raruoipate in all the duties and stations t<> which members may be a??igue<l, or we shall p. * uoally repudiate the principle which adniitted lUeui It I* uot believed tha. this convention, tor Instance, woui.t send one oi them us u depu.y to the general oon>< ution on aocoui.t of th>! otfunc it would occasion to our breturen of other uioceses. Thus, tLtir conuition would be practically und continually one of Inferiority I and humiliation uiore pulntully aggravated by the ex pectatb'ii Induct d by un act, which apparently pruuiiseu Lhelr perfect equality Your committee do not beln ve that such an equality can be produced, or that in the nature of things it can exist, in this community. Or -at and palpable Inequality must prevail to the extent of preventing the colored race from any active participation in our ohnruh government; and we believe that an attempt to correct it, ooutrary to the feelings and customs of our country, wiubl not only be abortive, bnt would be attended with the worst consequences to oar unity, our harmony, and our efficiency They, therefore, recommend that neither St. Philip's, nor any other colored congregation, be admitted into union with this convention, so as to entitle them to a representation therein. The consequences of snsh a determination probably will l>?, that such churches and congregations will not be responsible to, or under the government or oontrol of this convention, but will remain subject to the ordinary jurisdiction of their bishop; and when their members become adequate. luav have church oounclls of their own for their own peculiar government. Ail which is respectfully submitted, WM II HAR190N, RttUBEN HIIKRWOOD, J. C. 8PENCKR. Extinct from Minutet ?f the Standing Committee of tkt Diocrtt nf N- iv York, M'irc.n ft, 1819. The right reverend the bishop of thfs diocese met tha committee to consult with them, as his oouneil of advice upon the expediency of admitting to order* a colored man of suitable qualifications and character, with a view of his taking ctiarg* of u congregation of colored people In the city of New York: and after due deliberation, It wa* the unanimous opinion of the committee, that under nreaent clrnuuistanRes it wan aiiuitlint tn admit, m a candidate for holy order*. such a person as aforesaid. But the aommlttoe thought that It ought to I be distinctly understood, that neither the person so admitted as a candidate for hoi v orders, in the event of hi* being admitted to orders, be entitled to a seat In the convention. nor tha congregation of which ha may have charge, to a repreeentation therein. And further, that it be undemtood that the ?aid congregation pledge themselves to recolve the said person, in the event of hla being admitted to order*, aa their minister, and to provide for his support. Whereupon, It waa unanimously resolved to advise the bUhop to admit, as a candidate 'or holy orders, such a person an above described, with the understanding, and under the restriction above mentioned. At the nrxt meeting. April 7th, IBI0, IVjer Williams, jr., waa admitted a oandidate fur Holy Orders. Extract from Hishnp lloharl't .hidmt to the ConrrnMen of 1819, " On the .Id July last, I consecrated the new church ol St. Philip's. In Collect street, New York, designed for the use of the colored people of our church in that city. They statedly assemble there, aud their de votlons, except when tho clergy occasionally officiate, are oonducted by I'eter Wllllaos, jun . a colored man, who, for some years, under my direction, has acted , as Isy leader and catechlst among tbetn , and who, on the recommendation of the standing committee, has been recently adciitt?d by me as a oandidate for orders Kvtry measure relative to provision for acommodatlng the colored people with publio worship and religious Instruction, has Item pursued, and will continue to be pursued, with great caution and deliberation.'' The following la the report of the minority on the same subjrot 1 he undersigned, a minorltv of t'<e committee appointed by thla Convention of the ProUstant Episcopal church, in the diocese of New Vork, to consider the | application 01 nt. inilip'i oburch in thla city, to bead initted Into oonimunion with thin convention, jo hrretiy report:? That they regret exceedingly to be obliged to differ from the majority of aald committee, They do not raaka thin report with a view of exciting or encouraging any dlaeuaalon In thla convention, or topic* In no way couaotad with the autyeot of thla application. About thirty yeara ago. a congregation of colored people wai organiaed la UlU city aa an JCpUcopal Church, with the IERA 7. ipprobation of the Episcopal authority of thli dioce?e < baa continued since to oonform to the doctrines, worhip. and usages of tbU church moat uniformly ana conitantly It now a?ks to b? admitted to enjoy what Ita nembern consider to b? the privileges which other ihurcbe* have, of being received into the fall fellowship >f their Christian brethren, by adiiiisaion to this nonven;ion. The minority of your coinmittM do not hesitate | !o nay, that, although at tha time of tha organizing of Lhis congregation, it waa thought to be a wiaa and aalu :ary m?uun, vet in their opinion. subsequent events thould lead ui to doubt tb? propriety or expediency of lucb organization. It li now too lata to undo, In thl* particular, what baa been done. The minority of your committee oan see no reason why thi? application should not b? (ranted) and think there are ipeoial reason* why it should It is said that it was stipulated on the part of individuals of that oongregatlon at the time of It* orfaui cation, or before the ordination at the lati pious nu t reverend Mr. Williams, that they would not apply t'?r admission into this convention. This we believe tliey did not do; but wa oannot conceive how the present Ceneratien, belonging to that church, oan be bouud y any stipulation of that kind, made by those who we trust have long since departed hence In the Lord, and been received into communion with the sainta in Paradise The present members of that church do not thluk as their fatnars did on this ?uhject It may be said, that if this church be admitted, others will be organized and apply for admission. However mu ti this is to he regretted, yet wo suppose such will be the fact, aud on this very n< count, this sutjact merits the very aerlons consideration of this convention. Suppose churches, now to be composed of colored people exclusively, are organised in our principal oltlee?suppose they are refused equal Christian privileges, Willi other episcopal churohes?that the couveutions of our dioceses refuse to take them under their charge, and into their fellowship?will not these churches unite ai d form a convention of their own! Will they not choose a Bishop or bishops of their own 1 And undarsuch circumstances, would they Und any difficulty In obtaining Apostolical succession ? We fear the r*fusal of our convention to admit Into their fellowship this portion af their Christian brethren, will inevitably lead to a schism in the ohuroh, by the establishment of another Kpisoopal ehurch in these United tttatea. All must admit this would be a sore evil. The minority of your committee beg the convention to pause before they take a step which may lead to such a disastrous result. It may well be asked, can It be that baoause those who seek admbsion here are of a different,race and oomplexion from ourselves, that doubts are entertained of the expediency of admitting them to union with this convention? Hhvh the* not the Bible for their irnlilu? I)n (h?. ? /) In it that 1U divine precepts, it* universal charfty, its promised reward* are limited to any race or nation ? Was not the gospel vouchsafed to all men, to b? proclaimed to all nations ? The minority of your oommittee expressly disavow any other motive in thus recommending the admission of this church, than that of promoting peace and harmony, and carrying out into practioe the great Catholic doctrine of intercommunion of saint*, as taught in this Bible, the word of trod. These persons who apply for this fellowship. have been mad* in holy baptism, ' members of Christ, ohildren of Ood. and inheritor* of the kingdom of heaven"?they " eat nis flesh and drink his blood,'' and thus are Incorporated into Him; with us, they are one with him, and IU Is one with them. However just and proper distinction* in society may be In other respects, yet aa a member of one lloly Catholic Church, there ought to b? no other distinction than that made by superior self-denial, holines*, and virtue. The minority of your committee wonld deprecate moxt earnestly auy prolonged or excited discussion of thl* subject, or the introduction of <iu**tion* not neot.ssarlly connected with it, and recommend that this church be admitted into union with thl* convention. All which is respectfully (Uhmitted. IIVAN M. JOHNSON. JOHN A. KINO. Mr. Harriaon'* resolution in referenoe to th* Theological Seminary was then taken up. Mr. Bills offered an amendment, and In support of It aid it had two ol\jecU?1st, to bring up the names of per' sons submitted for nomination ; and, 'Jndly.to ascertain whether those proposed shall be nominated by this convention. Th* course pursued for years, was to recommend the old member*, and the standing committee re' commend f uch new members as the diocese may be en titled to. The old members are members, and cannot b< pushed out. The appointment of these trustees is thi most Important action thl*convention could take. The] have an Immense amount of money under their control and likewise the oontrol of the Institution for the education of their clergymen. Looking at it in this light, h< conceived It liscehnary that the diinorlty should be rep. resented in that board, and their views consulted. Hi would like that the member* be balloted lor, so that the minority could express their views. Beside*. there art members of this board of trustees who have never shown their laces in that institution, and he, for one, wished for the opportunity of depositing his ballot, and turning them out of office. A vote by ballot Is what ho desires, nd he hopes it will be granted by the convention. The Kev. Cms Junks was opposed to the ouurie recommended by (lielast gentleman, because he ha* beard no reason adduoed which would justify the convention In adopting It. In the present divided feeling of th* dioo?su It is not unlikely that tbe nominee* ot the minority would b? acratcuid by the majority of the convention.? In regard to tbe charge tbat the members of tbe Board have been remiss In attending the Seminary, what guarantee have the ?onveution tnat the new member* would uot do the same .' Mr. Hakhuok, In reply to Mr BetU, said he would deprecate a change In any of the trustees. If the gentlemen . are doing their duty. He wouldask th* gentleman, to what name of the trustees is there any objeollon urged ! There has been no nomination by this body since 1841 H* here read the name* of the member* of 1841,and ask' ed to which of them the gentleman referred in his r* marks. Ha then read the name* of th* member* elected since 1841, and mad* the same inquiry ; insisting at th< same time that the minority Were represented propor tionably. He denied what the gentlemin seems to im ply that on an eleotion by ballot the minority would ob miu ? ui^juruj ui uiviuwiri -iuvqodfcrbrjwwiaeii in aim mon> likeiy to be the cue. If the property I* so enormously great m the gentleman represents, lie would a?k him is it not iu safe hands .' It might be that two or ibrve of the members were not regulsr in their a'.teud anon on aoeount of old age, Infirmity, or seine oilier cau?e, but that la not the case with all of them. >lr. 0CTTI. in reply, said that thu appeal made to hiui to point out tiie person to whom he alluded an dtUcieut in attending to his duties, he considered very iod< licate and improper. He admitted that a majority of the Hoard were good men, whom be weuld vote for at hii) time, but there are one or two whom bo would certainly vote against. Mr John C. Hr^icKa moved as an amendment to the ctnunlmeut. that the words " or otherwise'' be inserted after the words ' by ballot." which was passed. l'tie ttniaodiuvul to the resoluiiou was withdrawn, and Mr. Harrison's resolution was curried.
