Protestant KpUcopsI CmivwiUou-Tl?e ii House of Delegate*. 1 Ninth Dav. , The convention assembled this morning at the usual I hour. ? Morning prayers ware read by the Her. Dr. Crockkr, 0 of Rhode Island, and the lessons by the Her. Mr. Good- e bich. After the Mrvioes, the Bishops retired, and the House of Deputies was organised. The minutes of last session were read and approved. Mr. Hickkell, Chairman of the Committee on the Bishop's mtunorlal, said that if the house was prepared for its reception, he would read it. He then proceeded to read the document, whloh is as follows:? The joint committee to whom were referred the resolution of the Diooesa of New York and the memorial of the Right Rev. Benjamin T. Onderdonk, respectfully beg leave to report: ? That they have had under their most serious and deliberate consideration, the .various subjects alluded to in the said resolutions and memorial, and have unanimously agreed to recommend the adoption of the canons herewith reported, in the full belief that they are calculated to promote the peace, the harmony, and the inti*restHof the church, as well in the diocese of New York, as rlsewbere Although aware that there are questions of deep Interest to the feelings of those who are immediately affected, would anxiously desire to have brought into discus sion, and to have decided by this conveoti' n, yet the committee after the most mature and qareful deliberation have ound that they oould not airrea with entire unanimity, in reoommeuding any additional measure. mod they have eoma to the conoluslon to recommend nothing in respect to which they are not unanimous. A great and intrinsio difficulty In dealing with these questions, is that the measure proposed must benomo precedents for future prooeedings, and that it is all important that, in disponing of these, we should keep constantly in view the general principles o f sound legislation, and should aot a* far as possible by general provisions. It is believed that the adoption of t'.e proposed canons will prevent the recurrence of difficulties similar to those whloh are now expeslenoed, and that they will alBO afford to the parties now asking for relief, a remedy more full and more satisfactory than may be hoped or expected in the first inst?nue. The committee therefore unanimously recommend the adoption of the following resolution, to wit Resolved, That, the House of Bishops conourring, the following canons be passed :? no. i. of proposed canons. Of the remiieion or modification of Judicial Stnlencei oj the Houie of Bithoin. The House of Bishops may, at a triennial or spxial meeting, altogether remit and terminate any judicial sentence whioh may have been imposed, or may hereafter be approved, by the bishops, or any of them acting as a judicial tribunal, or modify the same so far as to designate a precise period of time or other speoltie contingency, on the occurrence of which such sentence shall utterly cease and be of no further force or effect. Provided, that no suoh remission or modification shall be made, except at a meeting of the House cf Bishops during the session of some general eonventlon, or at a meeting of the House of Bishops convened after three months' notice of the time, plaue, and object of the meeting, given personally to each bishop, or left at his usual place of abode : and provided further, that nothing la this canon shall be understood to repeal or alter the provisions of canon XXXII. of 184 j. no. 11. or moroiEu canons. Of the penalty of Sutpention. When, hereafter, the penalty of suspension is Inilloted on a bishop, priest, or deacon, In this church, the sentence shall specify on what terms, or at what time said penalty shall cease. no. hi. or rnorosKD canons. Of performance of Epitcottal duties, in meant Din- I ctiei or in a Diucest the Bishop of which it under i dit ability. I) 1. Any bishop, assistant bishop, or missionary binhop, may. on the invitation of the convention, or the standing committee of any diocese, where there is no bishop, ?r where the bishop is for the time under a disability to perform Episcopal offices, by reason of a judicial sentence, or from any other oause, visit and perform ?pisoopal offices in that diocese, or in any part thereof: ?and this . invitation may be temporary, and it may at any time be revoked. ({ J. A diocese .without a bishop, or ot which the bishop is tor the time under a disability by reason of a judicial sentenoe, or from any other cause, may, by its convention, be placed under the full Episcopal charge of the bishop of another diocese, or of a missionary bishop, who fchall by that act be authorized to perform all the duties and offices of the bishop of the diocese so vacant, or having the bishop disabled, until, in the case of a vacant diocese, a bishop is duly elected and oonsecrated for the same; and in case of a diocese whose bishop Is dirquulifled as aftroaaid, until the disqualification be removed; or until, in either case, the said act ot the convention be revoked. t; 3 No diocese thus placed under the full charge and authority of the bishop of another diocese, or ol a missionary bishop, shall invite a second bishop to perform auy Kpiscopai duty *r exercise authority, till its connection with the first bixhop has expired ?r is revoked, (j 4. Canon .1 of 183H is hereby repealed. Uy order of the committee,? T. C BROWN ELL, Chairman on the Committee on the part of e the House of UiahoDs. ' 8 KAII.VIAR JARVI8" j Chairman to the part of the House of Clerical an<l I Lay Deputies. t New Yoax, Oct. 14th, 184# f Jcdok Chamdkrs said, that in presenting thin report, it was desirable that he should explain the views of the v committee more at large lie accordingly proceeded to " speak as follows .?The joint committee to whom the J subject has been referred, have proceeded as stated in the report, upon the principle that it was inexpedient J to recommend by that oommittee. for the action of this house, any measure to which the entire oonsent of the 1 committee oould not be obtained. It was very obvious J to the committee, that the expectation which was form- : ed by the appointment of the committee, wa< uot that any aotion should be concerted upon its part with una- * nimity. to settle all the difficulties which existed in re- ' ference to the subject embraced by the resolutions of * the diocese of New York, and'the memorial of Bishop ' 11. T. Onderdonk. The fact that a diversity of opinions 1 exist upon most Important and vital questions-I mean 1 vital in the Anal disposition of the difficulty, for I am : happy to say that it is the opinion at least of some mem- ' bers of this body that all questions necessary for the 1 adjustment ol this question may be accomplished without at ail interfering with any questions vital in another " sense?this rendered an agreement extremely doubtful. It was only the expectation that certain of these ques- 1 tlocs could be settled from tlio known character of the 1 committee. Members of thnt oommittee have express- ' ed?have recorded?have published opinions directly at J variance with each other on several ol these questions of , a vital oharacter. That these individuals should, in a J general convention, abandon these, deliberately formed and expressed?after having been formed ? certairly j could not have been anticipated by nuy member of thi? body or of tho church. They therefore assume? aud I thiuk necessarily and wisely assuma?that it was in re- ' ference to those questions within the limits ofthose par- ! tioular subjects which have thus been so formHilv mixed upon; that It was within thoM limit* that the action of th? same must necessarily be continej The committee, therefore, do not deem it either expedient or useful to present fur the consideration and aotlon of this body an y of these particular questions. Nsy, I say further, the oiinmlttee could not so have done; tor there probably could not have been Buy action at all upon the subject by a vote of the joint committee. They, therefore, deemed it proper that, in acting upon this subject, they should confine themselves to such propositions as have respeot to the state of the church, and were In their character calculated, in the language of the report, to promote ita peace and harmony aud inturest, might be adopted by all classes of persons who have b?en engaged >n any way In this unfortunate i.lTair, and on whioh the united opinions of all descriptions of persons might b? concentrated. They are perfectly sensible that any action on the part of the committee,*ill still leave at liberty any individual member of either body?either branch of the General Convention?on the personal responsibility of that Individual member, to propose for diecussiou or for decision, any question which in the judgment of that individual member. It may be wise and disoreet or necessary thus to have discussed and decided; suoh persons, not as a oommittee to exeroise any sort of coutrol or iuliut nee on the judgment of individual members, who thus act on the responsibility which they owe to their "liocese, to the church at large, and to the great head of the church They are responsible only for their actions as a committee Now, it mast be obvious to every gentleman who will reflect on the subject, that from this classification of opinion on this subject, It could not be elpeoted that the joint committee should hare gone beyond the particular character of legislation which they had reoommended. I am very sensible that, in alluding to opinion* on this subject, I am standing ' upon most delicate ground. I am very sensible tbnt there are individual members h re who listen to every word that is expressed in referenoe to these opinions with a sensibility which may Induce an apprehension that the language employed by the speaker is designed fcn mfftn nun* Lhun it nnuUI In fh? -- ferencu to their sensibilities, be regarded m exprenili.g I b?g to dinabune the mind* of tho*e to whom I have the honor of addreaaing myself, of any iiuch lmprcneiona I apeak with frankness, and, If 1 know myself, with Intngrity and ' aincerity. when I nay that It I* my own desire, an I believe It; i* the ardent desire of the committee. If not to confirm tally th? peace and harmony of the church, at leant to make some progres* towarda that object. Opinion* upon thla subjeot may be divided Into three clarnea. There are some member* of the churoh whose opinions are perfectly known, the number of thla clasa not, however, being known; it ii a clans renpectabla for Intelligence and piety, and, Id my own individual opinion, for ita numerical extent. ? There la a claaa of peraoni who indulge the opinion that the Bishop of New Vorkia an injured, penecuted, pious man. and should forthwith be reetored to the performance of all hia Episcopal offices and duties, without any qiialifloatlon wliatever. There It a claaa of peraoua ? numerous and highly reapeetabla-respected for all the attribute* I have ascribed to the drat claaa, who think differently on each one of these propositions There la a fourth clans, who, whether douhtiug upon either of tbeae questions, or reposing upon the belief that the bishop haa not been aubjeot to the discipline of the church, io far aa to compromise all uf?ful purposes. but that hia restoration in the unlimited manner proposed by the flrat claaa, would be disastrous to the interests of ' the church. In other words, a clana who believe that If theae evideoovi proye that be b?eu Injured by the 0 Mi W YC ' YORK, SATURDAY M' mputatinn. his usefulness hs a dlosesan in at an enilbat It would be unwise ou the part of th? ohuroh. if ucb an object could be obtained tbat It would b? unrlse again to Introduce him to th? full exercise of his office, t la believed tbat there can be found no diocese, withut special effort for the purpose. in which all thc<? lasses of persous may not be found. The class umulxr ne prevails in all dioceses to an extent which nobody an doub' The class number two prevail* in others ery far, beyond doubt. The third class, who think the lishop's usefulness at an end, that the peace of the hurch would b? perpetually disturbed if ha should be ,llo?ed to enter his offloe?is, in my opinion, the largest laps Now, sir, these classes were represented in tha r.mmlttee It was known that each class was repreented in the joint committee It was. ot coura*, uttery impossible thai on any of those questions, there oould lave been a report which would have been sanctioned inanimouily. It is believed, witb great respect, tbat lach of these classes il represented in each house of thia ;eneral eonventien. In that view, if the commtttee lould have unanimously recommended a proposition, it rould. perhaps, have been questioned how far it would iav? been wise to submit it to a body whose views were mown beforehand so widely to differ, it is not my pur>ose, Mr President?I desire to be so understood?to inimate my own personal views in regard to the >plulnni entertained by these clauses of persons. Huch less is it my purpose to Intimate any opinions of ny own aa to the wisdom or prudence, or probable remit, of any measure which may be introduced into this jody expressive of tbat opinion I now confine myself is the agent of the joint committee to the expression of their motives and actions, and I now proceed to endearor to explain the result of their actions 1 have said Lhua much with a view to gratify, perhaps, in some reipeota, the judgment* of ninny members upon the floor, who will doubtless thiuk this, with so much labor?so much thought so much expectation?will think this report very far short of such a measure as they oould have anticipated We aro perfectly aware of it. We have deeply felt it. We ail have thu expectation that when this report comes Into the house there will be very frncral reierenoe to the limited extent to which the comnittee hav.- agreed to report I hope our brothren will sxcuse us for the character of the report, and what may 5e thought its limited character, when the; hare reflected upon the condition of the committee. The character ind frellag^whlch prevailed there; which were known to jrevail there?the circumscribed sphere of action to irhloh they were limited?these things being known and :onsidereu. such as the report Is, they felt themselves jound to offer it. But. to take up another idea of the eport, we hope that however inefficient at first view ,hese positions may appear to individual members of tills x>dy, a careful comparison with existing canonical reguations on the subject, will induce them to believe that .hey are likely to be accompanied with very s? ious and mportnnt results The various classes of individuals to irhom I have referred, we believe are all operated upou >y one prevailing sentiment. Certainly all the members >f the joint committee, felt the influence of that Seiiti nent?a sentiment which led them in a spirit of Christian [indues* and Christian feeling ; a spirit of devotion to .he church and iU interests ; a desire to see peace and toncord reestablished in our oommuuion, led them to ibandon?as far as possible?to abandon their opinions ipon all questions which did f,ot affect the principle by vhich their opinions were regulated. I am the last man 0 stand here and appeal to any man to b? a traitor to his opinions It is not to be expected.whatever be the result lowever disastrous to the peace of the church?it canlot be expected. If met believe that any one doctrinal >rinciple Is involved iu the measure In which they are tailed to aot, of course they cannot desert It. But I do lope that opinions will not be formed in any condition >f excited feeling, in a temper which leads us to invoke irinciple because we can find no other ground upon *hioh to oontinue in the expression and practice of a sourso of opinio^ or conduot which we do not find sane;loned by every motive of expediency. I mean to excess this idea, that from the very Infirmities ef our ua:ure, we often find ourselves in suoh a state of exulted Wings, that we mistake principle and conscience, beuuse we feel lirst predisposed to retain that opinion ind those motives which are strongest, which soon imjels us thus to retain it. I'crfeotly known?too familiar 1 principle almost to b? expressed?that passion blinds >ur judgment. All we askl s, that In the spirit of calmless, laying aside all excited feelings, with reference ilone to the great interests of the church, these <juee ions may be received ; aod gentlemen will be inxious as is deiirable? anxious tn examine deeply Urn. . .. * ..Ul.U 1 1.1 ? > uu rAbrut Inuivii ijiunn prmri|uf? wniCR Pall lot be abandoned, will lead them and stop short of that >olnt an to any questions of expediency, and come toother with the purpose to lay themselves upon the cfltonon altar, ho that in the spirit of uoinpromistt there may formed aome principle to guide us It hail been Raid, am aware, with regard to ,the first canon, that there lave been differences of opinion. The canon itself proM)shs that the House of Bishops shall be considered aulmrised to remit a sentence or modify a sentence The >ther provisions are provisions of detail. This is the lutatauce of the uanon. There 1st olssa of theologians *ho have supposed that this provision was unnecessary, it least some of whom I know have at first view of the luhject approved it, was not only inexpedient but in rlolation of a principle?that principle being that the louse of Hlshopshave power inherently They have elt some i elnrtauce to say they will vest power in the louse of Kit hops I canuot do so ?I cannot do so, be aiise it violates a principle The committee thiuk that i very satlsfaccoiy unswnr rniiy be given to tbeio. Any ndivldutl who b-lieves that by the primitive usac is of he church, aud by the very character and nature of the ilHoe of a bit-hop. tills, however necessarily aud in inn-uuy uriuiinii io wieui. can, on principle, Una u? obfctiun to the eunctment ot a provision which leaves the louse of Bishop* in possession of this power. If they lave the power. wu do not deem it a violation of priuciile to Hay lliny have It Those who believe that the louse of Bishop* inherently ham no such power -and re know that th-re are persous of this description? ertatnly u^nuot object, on principle, to the authority iow proponed to be given to the House of Bishops I hold bis to be an exemplification precisely of the principle I ust now mentioned If the individual who hoids that he House of Bishops hare power inherently, would be ratified witb an exposition of iny own opinion, 1 weuld i?t only express the proposlon, but I would do it in the r>rm in which it is Htatel That form would be that the lishops have this pow?r, because they have had It from >11 time But what has been the pnotical result of uch a provision ? Precisely that accomplished by this nactinMdt. It accomplishes nothing. More, the prinlipie which, when indulged, leaven the particular subject o which it applies itself, in precisely the shape 11 which it finds it, cannot be said to be violated. We lold, therefore, that all classes of persons without reerence to the theological opinions they may entertain, nay all unite in one common opinion with regard to bese propositions 1 have only, in conclusion upon Hie uliject, to say, that all classes of persons in the commitee have united in the opinion that there can be found lowbere iti the church, or out of the church, individuals uore deeply impressed with a eonvictiou of the doctrine ft the primitive power of tlm bishop?the inherent lower ot the bishop to sit in judgment in nuuli a essas bis?there can be nowhere found individuals more leeply impressed with the propriety of these opinions, ban are rome of the individuals who have agreed to ecommend the adoption of canon first. We iuclude in .bis Idea of a supervision of the seutenoe as necessarily nvolvud a character as an .ippellute court to a certain xleut-not lu the name of an appellate court-not In .he form of an appellate court, tut so far forth an the ndlvidual sentenced may be concerned, a court of appeals to all practioal purposes. He has power at my time to appear before the House of Bishops, there to express to them the rotsens why he claims a remission or a modification of the sentence-to prove the facts upon which he grounds it, and, at all times, It s in uieir power 10 consider ana act upon the applica.ion ; unci, ho for an the House of UUhops in concerned, am than in a court of appeals strictly pursuing the chiirloter of a judicial tribunal So much for canon number > ?. The language of canon number two in no explicit .hat it is supposed that its character cannot be subject o misconception?" When hereafter the penalty of sustension is inflicted upon a bishop in this churth, the lenteuce shall specify the time when such sentence shall lease.'' It is to avoid, without imputin; any thing?to iroid what we all know has been the occasion of very treat diflionlly, division and exolteinent, and one of he operative causes of our present couditiori. It is enirely prospective, and deemed entirely uuexo?ptioiiabie l'he measures of relief to the diocese of New York, rhioh the committee have been capable of recommendok unanimously, ii to be found in the third of the proiosed canon*. This canon is a modification of non third, of 1H38, which gentlemen will find upon le of the last (General Convention, page ^97 i'f?e first suction of cation :ij of IH38, was passed for the lurpoeeof enabling the standing committee on the conention of a neighboring diocese to invite a neighboring lishop to perform episcopal duties in a particular dloese. The modification now proposed is simply and enirely such as to . nabin the standing committee or the liocesan convention of a dioceso of which ths bishop is ncapable, by reaiton of a judicial sentence, or from any tner eauae. to make provision fur the performance of lie duties of a bishop during such diaubtlity. which proi?lou waa made by the convention from the apparent bvioua f>tot that oaeea might occur io which the neces ity would exist, particularly If thu melancholy caae hould occur ia the church of oue of it* biahopa beoonr on mentally incompetent by a derangement of mind?a late not contemplated by the canon an at present.

It In known that oufl of the right rev. fithira of the church have uot eoogoiaed any authority in the standing committee to act t ia al?o known that other father* of the church have to gnised such right, and have acted in virtue of that ecognltiou We appeal, then, to the feeling whioh hat teen iuvuked by tbe lifHt canon, aud invite ail per*on* o conaecrale ttieir opinion* to the common good of the ihuroh.

'heae are the remedies which the committee, aud the illy remedies Which the committee, acting with uuited )RK I ORNING, OCTOBER 16. IS voloe, have been able to rwommrnd. We think them entitled, before they are condemned as entirely lneffl- c clcnt, to the deep consideration of this body. We inveke that consideration. We have only to say that ws s deprecate the expression of anv opinion on the subject. t and to ask you in conclusion, that the report which the n ommittee have presented be printed for the use of the 1 , house It in hoped that gentleman will consider the t | difficulties to which we have adverted, that they will | seriously consider the consequences that may be the j result of their action If, after this consideration. It shall be the pleasure of this convention to repose on the i buis which this committee as a committee have reooni- I mended, undisturbed by any further legislation. It may i be desirable to know on the part of many members i what would be the practical condition of the bishop of i the diocese of New York These measures do not strike i every mind with all their force, and it may, therefore, ] be proper to state, that the practical consequence 1 would be this the bishop of the diocese of New i York would remain a suspended blahop, until the i House of Bishops, at the application of the bishop l or of some of his friends, or moved by some considers- ] tlon, think proper to remit bis sentence, or, in some | form to modify It They have power to modify It In any form, of course?not Increasing the extent of the penalty now Inflicted. The diocese would be In the condition in which the third canon places it, having the acknowledged authority on the part of th? of tin diocesan convention, to seek the aldot auy bishop in the Union, for any period of time which they might choose to designate I have omitted to state one faot In oouneotion with the third canon?that canon third, of 1 (434,did, for some reason, forbid that where a bishop hud an assistant, and a vacant diocese called for the episcopal office* of the senior bishop, they necessarily must have the episcops 1 offices of the assistant bishop. The truth of the faot Is. that It was thought that the whole theory of these exuting oanoas was, that we war* to hare a bishop, where the suuior bishop was Incompetent to perforin the duties of his own diocese; and we could not recognise the oasu of a bishop called out of bis own diocese to supervlso another diocese. It seamed, therefore, desirable, that a much larger latitude should be given. Having thus endeavored to explain the purposes of the committee, I have now to say In obi-dienoo to the request [A member of the convention here reminded Judge C. of another topio upon whlrh it was desirable to remark ] It Is suggested to rae. sir, that /efersnce has not bean made to another difficulty which was experienced on the subject in the committee n."", .ud which gave character to the form in which the proposed relief was proposed, upon which diversity of opinions exist throughout the whole Union. The committed were divided an to the extent of the vacancy in the diocese. in the f*co Of which there was express limitation It was a fruitful seurce of discussion, and a very auxloYis subject for thought iu the committee. Many were glad to perceive that It was founded upon the opinion that Indefinite suspension was all right. The opinion was.tliat there was no indefinite suspension In the case. The fact that the House of BishopB had the power to arrust the seutence or remit it at any time, made it, in their estimation, equivalent to a sentence?which on Its face should be expressed iu the form, "suspended till the House of Bishops ,shall think proper to remit the sentenoe." Without meaning to say that this wo\ild be the united opinion, I have no such authority, but believe the reverse to be the faot; there was after much thought on the subject, a willingness on the part of all those who entertain that opinion, to unite in the enactment now proposed In Its present torm on this principle. Whatever may be the inherent power of a bishop or a collective body of bishops, is a Question with which this convention Is not called to eal. We have a churoh organization?a government. No government can exist without prescribing the form as well as theisubject of their action. Our canons, from the first commencement of the organization of our churoh, have undertaken to assign duties, to regulate the manner of performing those duties to the blshoD of the church A canon provide* the mode of introducing a bishop into a diocese to perforu episcopal duties liy the adoption of the enactment thus proscribing the form now shown, it is understood that without you have thus prescribed a l'urm, the bishop would havo no episcopal authority, except within curtain geographical limits A man may believe that a bishop is a full bishop, wherever he may Uud hiui He may be vested with all the attribute of a full bishop, entirely competent to perfotm any episcopal office, which by hi* sacred oflloe he has power to perform, and yet they may still conform to the universal praotlco of this church, in the presorlbed form, by which the regulation of his proceed iugs shall be established, a.v well of this body as of the I'roiestant Kplscopal Church of the United States of Amerloa, subject to the legislation of the General ^Convention, composed of the House of liishops and the House of Clsrloal and 1,ay Deputies ? This view presented Itself an one calculated to enable all those who entertain the opinion that the dlooese was vacant, to adopt the language contained in it, and at tbe inni* time to enable all those who eutsrtain the opinion that the dlooese N not vacant, have still diocesan ? a diocesan whose jurisdiction is not voided, but in suspense?also to agree. A Mkmhkh here called for the reading of the report, I when it was again read by the Secretary. Judge Uh\mh) K' oontinued?I have now i>?rf.irm?il what i considered my duty, and I ask tint this report and the canons appended to it. be printed for the use of j the bouse. and that all further action on It be Depended until the printed copies are reallr furnished. and opportunity furnished the members of this house ol' Informing themselves of the content* of the report, and the canon* appended I will only add, tint I desire no misconception in regard to the House oi Bishops being a court of appeal I have now performed all the duty I owed to the house as a member of the committee. 1 will, I hope, be excused from making any remarks ra morn motu. The committee are awaie that every member of thin body reserve* the power to introduce uot only this but any proposition which may in his opinion be expedient to act upon. I have had some acquaintance with the proceedings of thin body, and therefore think it proper to express my own individnal'opinion. I am free to say that I look upon the action of the committee as accomplishing the largest measure of good for the church, as in the present position of opinions on the subject it Is practicable to accomplish, without meaning at all to interfere with the conduct of any Individual whose superior enlightenment and judgment, or whose deeper reflection on this subject, may lead him to differ from the committee I mean to express nn own opinion, that if It were possible that gentlemen would como to the conclusion to which I have arrived, In the present divided state of opinion I will not say betweeu this body and the House of bishops, but between members of this body and among the members of the House of lllshops?it is an impossible expectation that any measure which does violence to the principles of the differ! nt class** of persons called to act on the subject, could be passed; if they would reflect on the probable agitation and excitement which the discussion of the question, tu t only aflecting princlplt s dear to individuals, but affecting personal considerations which must of tie eeenty ati?ct llitiir sensibility?It th?y would reflect on these fiicis. and thru enquire what would be thn result of those agitations in the church. Id extending or removing the discontent which has hsrrassed a portion of the church, 1 cminot hut (litter myself that they would, after d< ep consideration with the meaDi< before them of forming au opinion as to the results of Mich a step; I cannot but Matter myself they would see thn expediency of not introducing in thin body any proposition which would iuvolve a change of the opinion* to which they stand I MmI by long consideration, deep reflection, pride of opinion, or in Dome canes from private consideration* In abort, I hope that every member1 of thin house will fwei himself bound to discount) nance the Introduction of any proposition, unless first It is held by him to be essentially necessary to the preservation of some principle which he cannot l?-t pass without being settled, and that there is a probability that the result will be accompanied with good. I move, Mr President, to lay this report on tile table for the present, and that in the mean time It and the canons attached to It, be printed for the use of the member*. Mr. Mr.MMiiiiF.k ro*e to prop one an amendment to the motion, lie pioposed that it be made the special order of the day for Monday next Judge Cimmhkks proposed the day after to-morrow. Mr. Mkmmiivock?That will be Sunday. Mr. Mr.*o said the members could have printed copies of the report to-morrow morning. Judge ('iiamiikus?Vary well, then I propose to morrow morning. Mr. Wil.i.iami said that botore the vote was taken he wished to submit to the house soma propositions In order that the same may be printed at the same time an thrt iwndrt knit iiPAnn?i><i ?. *???? a# ?*?? ?. ? ' no that the opinion of this house may not bo forestalled by the report just read; and In doing so, be did it with diffidence I am (Raid ne) a n?w delegate, not very familiar with canon law, and can only bring to my assistance the little knowledge I have; and to the remarks which I am about to make, I desire to be understood that I mean not to piss an opinion of tbe validity or invalidity of the sentence passed upon the bishop In other word*, with the sentence which we, ah legislator*. have nothing to do. But there are some principle laid down In these proposed canon*, to which I cannot a**ent I object to them especially because tbe question referred to the committee was that of a bishop indefinitely appended, but the caininlttee have gone into the our of orients and deacons, which was not referred to them That I will not refer to now, but 1 wii-li to enquire whether in the case of a bishop in connection with his dloneae, but who is prevented frmn performing his duties, It is allowable for that diocsi to call on a bishop who can perform them. I do not mean to assert the principle that by a sentence of Indefinite suspension the dlooexe becomes ipio fur In vacant, but a principle of justice, that whenever a party has put It out of hU power -h >a separated himself from the diocese over which lie t.iidjurisdiction--whether that diocese nan choosu a llmhop to perforin the funollons which the other ihoulii ?> done gllere he was called to order, but he continued: I must l?? permitted to goon m 11.lie farther I was about to remark that I do not want to go into the question of Inherent powers, but I wish to say this there is no inherent power In tbe jurisdiction over which a bishop exorcise* hi* function* The territory or district over which he i* to ex?rol*e power* must be defined It I must be so. All I mean to *ay is, that whether the Mouse of Bishops ha* the power without this house to alter a sentence. Over what jurisdiction fhe suspended bishop shall act, is what I want settled It Is held that the House of Bishops has an inherent power of altering sentence* , that the bishop* sit h> re nnder a canon of the church, which state* how they shall be conveued, j how they shall be tried, and how they shall be suspended, tnd when the court adjourned It* powers were to end That a judicial tribunal, as such, has not the power to revise It* own sentence, and if It Is to posees* It, It must come from the *an>? source which gave them the power to try With thl* v ew.

The PimurNT thni enquired of the gentleman the ibjent of hit proponed canon* Mr Williams replied that he proposed them M ?ubtltute* for those rec?mmended by the committee, and le would state the object of them was, that when a bthnp wan suspended for an unlimited time, it (hall be awful for the dioceee over which he exorcism! jurisdic,ion to choose another bishop who should hari) the name wwor to act ax If tl\* smpewded bishop had resigned hil urisdiction The resolution was to the following effeot: \ bUhop ol thin church, who has been suspended for an mlimited time, may be restored by the Hou*e of Bishop*, i majority consenting thereto; but before he shall have mthnritv to exHro.isit jurisdiction over any diocese orer irhlch he had juriidiction beforesuspension. he Khali prelent a certificate signed by a majority of the dlocegan sonrention to the following effect, viz: a request to the House of Bishops, to restore to his diooeao bishop who has been suspended for an uuliiulted time, ind also testifying to his good conduct, fco , but if the loovention of said diocese shall have ohosen a bishop, then the restored bishop shall not hare jurisdiction over biin. This proposed canon, Mr. Williams remarked, goes on the principle, that a suspension is not a recommendation of good character, but it requires a suspended bishop to present such testimony for hia restoration as he had to present at his ordination I would mention now, he said, that 1 do not mean to commit myself to this particular canon, or the form In which It is drawn up. or the principles set forth in it; but I know that a large proportion of this house, who think in the case of vu?ii uiH.i.iy umuic us|i?n?eu, m?i nicy n?T? a right to elect another bishop. 1 thought that something of the kind must b? laid before the house. so that the attention of the houie might b? called to that question, M well a* to the other, and 1 therefore, move to have It prlated with the other. Judge < m?mh> hi- The gentteratn from Virginia mistakes the otyeot of my remarkH I did not intend to exclude anything. The only proposition which he speak* of, has beea before the committee and was debated at length The question before the hotue was simply thla : shall we make the report of the committee the order of the day for Monday next ? But let us take a vote on it. Mr. Williams?If 1 did not refer to it now, I eould not do so after the vote was taken, because there would be no subjsct before the house. Mr. Chambers?Permit me to say that you are not now in Older in offering it. Mr. William.*?I oare not what form is adopted?I imply want the proposition laid before the house. The President inquired in what manner would the gentleman offer his resolutions? _ Mr. Williams said he offered it as a substitute. Judge Chambers? Don't rffer it as a substitute. Mr. Williams?Well, all I want Is. that the prinolples embraced in the resolutions may be laid before the house Mr. McGl'ire said Judge chambers made one remark whieh might oonvey an Impression different front that whioh he Intended to convey. He said the main principle embraoed in the proposition of Mr. Williams was discussed in the oommittee room and then abandoned. Such was not the case. Judge CmniM->1 onlymeant tosay that it was discussed and withdrawn by the gentleman who proposed It, as being Impracticable, Mr. McOl'irr?The principle was eutertained by others as well, and no one entertaining it abandoned it. llev. Mr. Van Imbr remarked, that as one of the committee, he could say that the report alleges that he did abandon the principle. A member inquired if it was in order to dlsouss what transpired in the oommittee reom. Dr. Van lumen?No. But I wish to remove a wrong impression If it has been formed. Mr. McKarland thought it wrong to discuss matters which took place in the oommittee room, and hopod the chair would stop all further discussion. I The President said the remarks were explanatory, and the g.intlemen wished to set themselves right in the matter I)r Van iNoic.t bugged to remind the gentleman from Virginia, tbat be did not transound the rules of the house in explaining away an Impression which might have lif^n formed by the language of the report. MDr Uuook rose to a question of order. The house nan indulged the member from Maryland in makiug a full etatmnent of the transactions in the committee room wfl uave listened 10 mui Willi great patience and to all his reasons, and 1 may say to bin paternal advie.-, and I think it In due to the committee when any statements are made which are calculated to place them in a fal?e position, that the house is bound In courtesy to listen to an explauatlou. 1 hope the gentleman from Virginia will, therefore, be heard as fully an the gentleman from Maryland was in regard to transactions In the committee loom, and the principles oh which the report wax made. The PnEaiDKNT said, he was of opinion gentlemen did have au opportunity of explaining all they wished to lay before the houae. Mr. McUi'ibk said, he had another remark to make, but h* did uot wish to press it now. He only wanted to say, that the members of the committee there reserved their rights, and that they did what appeared to them best to lorward the rod attained, and as tar as the unanimous opinion of the committee was concerned, we all thought the plan recommended l>y the gentleman from I Virginia was the bent Mr. K>:i.r.r would say that the consecration of the assistant liishop of Illinois was appointed to take place on Monday by the special order of the house, and thehouue cannot wi'll set this <lwwn for the same day Mr. Hawks?It makes no difference, for the house can take up auy order It pleases. Some debate of a ruunin^ character, on the propriety of taking the question on the substitute ollured by Mr. Williams, took place, when th it gentlemau withdrew it. The resolution offered by Judge Chambers, that the report of tbu committee be printed immediately, and | that it be made the special order of the day for Monday next, wan then submitted and carried. Mr. Williams then offered bis resolution sh an inde- 1 pendent ene from that just acted upon. The question was taken, and that, too, wan ordered to be printed. lev ltn iiahd Mason moved that the committee on oanons be instructed to inquire into nnd report on the expediency of altering the second section of the oanon of lms Referred. Her. Dr IIaw is desired to ask leave of the house that the Kev Mr. Cutnminga. of Michigan, might absent himself after thin week. Mr. Gummi.nus said that it 1* three weeks lince ho left home, and ho wishod to return as soon as possible. Urgent reasons attracted him home, not the least of which in that bin churoh la vacant, and will remain ho till be returns. Kev Mr. Kokhki moved that all such applications be, hereafter, referred to the coin in it tee on elections. Tbe I' this, Kev. Mr. Miau wished to know whether the committee would have the power to grant leave of absence. PaKiiDCNT?No: they could only report. Mr (Jutuinings, by a vote of thd house, was granted leave to go home. Mr. Pa i uk got up and referredthe convention to canon li of 1U32, uinl haid he wished it referred to tbecomuilttee. with instructions to amend it In the third liue, ao aa to make it read :? " When a bishop of a diooese is unable, by nason of old age, or other permanent cause of infirmity, to discharge his Episcopal duties, one assistant bishop may be elected by aud for the said diocese, who shall benoin lnated by one convention and elected by another,and who hall in all cases succeed the bishop in case of surviving him The assistant bishop shall perform *uch Episcopal duties, and exercise such Episcopal authority In the diocese, as the bishop shall assign to him; and in case of the bishop's inability to assign such duties declared by the convention of the diocese.the assistant bishop shall,during such inability, perform all tbe dutiea and exercise all the authorities which appertain to the offloe of bishop. No person shall be elected or consecrated a suffragan bishop, nor shall there be more thau one assistant bishop in a diocese at the same time." The object of the alteration was, he said, the promotion of good order and general satisfaction in the church. The matter was referred. An Invitation from the dlreotors ofthe l)eaf and Dumb Institution to visit that establishment at any tliue the members may see fit. was read. A Mr.MHKH moved that the invitation be accepted, anu, in uruer to uo no, mat, me noun- ao now adjourn 1 Rev I)r Hawks boped the motion to xtjourn would not bo prvNBPil.

P. Coolldge, of WatervlUe,WM the murderer of Matthew* While every suspicious olrcumstance was being twlated and analysed, a wltneaa arose, who by a a trait forward tale, haa struok the last pluuk from beneath the feet of Dr. C. It will be reoolieuted, that Dr. Coolldge had requested Matthews to get him MMM) or $'4000 forashort time, and promised him a bonus of $400 tor the use of It, with a bill of sale of his books and aooounts for security, but requested him not to tell any one of it. Matthews did, however, inform his uncle and cousin, who signed the note at the bauk witl^kim for the money, that he was golug to let it to rooildge. The money wan drawn from the bank ou Thursday, the 30th ult., the day of the murder. Ou the evening of that day, M. was at a party composed of young people, at Dorr'a tavern, and left, Haying that he was going to the dootor'a oflloe to transact ioiui business with blw. He was afterwards seen oonveraing with two students ?n the sidewalk, and nothing mora seen of him uutil he was found murdered in the morning. The body was not so bruised and mangled M at flret represented, although the itateineiit ot the deep cuts and blows on the head was correct. The faot that the wounds did not have the appearunoe of having bled, lad to the bt liut that he was dead before they ware given. Suspicions of poison were thereby e*etted, which lad to an examination of the stomach and an analyiatlon of in oonteuts, which confirmed those suspicions ?Hindering it certain that he had come to hia death by pruMle acid Dr. C., the moruing after the murder, left Watervllle about three o'clock, to visit a patient lu a neighboring village He returned about ten o'clock A. M.. and expressed surprise ou hearing of the murder, and laid he had loaned .Matthews $iOU ihe previous evening. We gave some hint* yesterday of the eiposare made by young Hint We have since gathered from an eitra of the Kailrrn Timet, and from other courcea, a mora extended account. The student who la east In so Important a character in thia dreadful tragedy, haa been with Dr. C. about two years His name is Thomaa Flint, and he is the sou ot Thomas 11. Kliut, of North Anson, a member of the last Senate of Maine.? We know him well lie in - m?n r,r *? -* decision of character. It will be recollected that Flint had admitted being In the offl?e on tba fatal evening after young Matt hewn was seen to enter it. and though be denied all knowledge of the murder, In hi* examination before the inquest, there wan a suspicion that regard for his friend and teacher had prevented hla disclosing what be knew ou the sultject. Youug Flint had three time* cent for his father after the murder, but the message wan a* often Intercepted, and he received the information only in time to arrive in Wutervllle ou Thursday morning, when be took hla son to a private room aud requested a lull dlnoloture o f whatever ho might know relative to the murder Hia course wan successful A full disolo'ure wait made, and on the folloxing morning Mr Hint proceeded to Augusta. and took me.isures for bringing hl? sou '.h testimony before the grand jury. Dr. C. wu conveyed to Augusta on Friday afternoon '1 be tollowing is the testimony of young Flint, which it if* Mated, in Irom the moiit reliable source :? About !* o'clock, on the evening of the inurdar, Dr. ( oolidge came to the door of the room hj which young Fliut was sitting, at Williams'Hotel, and asked him to accompany him to the office, which wan but a few steps distant They went togetber into the ofllce, which consisted ot two large room*, front and rear, on the seoond lloor. After entering the front room, Coolidge locked the door, and immediately told Hint that he waa going to reveal to him a mystery in which hid life was Involved ? he then proceeded to ray, that Matthew* came In a Hhort time before, that be guve htm a glaaa of brandy to drink, and he immediately fell in an apoplectic fit, mad wu lying in the other room, lie said the affair would ruin them if the body wu found In the oflloe, and ha had called him In to aid In disponing of it. VariouH plans were thuu suggested for secreting the body. It was proposed to leave it In the street, and alao to cant it into the river It waa thought the night was not dark enough to venture being seen In taking it to the river, aud it wan deposited where it waa found. Coolidge wan occupied a considerable portion of the night in secreting the money, and removing evidences of the deed. At four o'clock l-> the morning he started for Hkowbegsn to visit a patient. Hint knew nothing of the money till after the return ot Coolidge, when ne wax told be obtained $IMOO, wbleh had been secreted under the carpet, beneath an Irou Mife Hint, afterwards, at the persuasion of Coolidge, removed it. and deposited a part of it where it waa found, in William's shed, and another part in another place, but ultimately put toe whole, except the roll fjund. into a small jug. and burnt the money He bad not at any time counted it, and knows not wtiether the whole JlH<*' was destroyed, but thinks it was In regard to the real nature of young Flint's connection with this tragedy, tbare is no diversity of opinion among those who have carefully aud candiuly weighed all the .circumstances. No one presumes that he had t be least suspicion of the murder till alter It was commuted His error was in yielding to help conceal It.
