TIk Polity of tile OoT?riun*nt with Regard to Mexico. T ie d'-sitatclvn recived by the Government fro-n th" s?Mt of w ir do not give the slightest hope of pe.i?"-. Not the leu?t encouragement cun be d' rivfii from the statements of the peace commissioner with the army, and the Government place so little dependence upon the peace propositions, that measures will be immediately taken to carry out the "absorbing policy," so generally admitted to be the only course left to pursue. The negotiations carried on between the commissioners of both Governments, during the armistice, developed the policy of the Mexicans relative to ceding portions of their territory, which was decidedly a new feature. It was proposed to give the United States that portion of Mexico known as New Mexico, provided iuc peupie 01 inai iccuon agreed 10 cuuie uiiuci he jurisdiction of the United States Government, to be d 'cided by a vote raken on the question. This was of course refused, and negotiations upon that point withdrawn. The term-* proposed, and the course pursued by the Mexican commissioners, and the movements of the Government while negotiations were pending and the armistice continued in force, show pretty clearly that they had not the remotest idea of making peace. The ultimatum of the Government of the United States was pretty generally known before the Mexican commissioners were appointed and negotiations commenced, and the result of the conferences held, shows pretty conclusively the intentions of the Mexican Government from the beginning. The course we now intend pursuing in prosecuting the war, baa been forced upon us by the treachery of the people with whom we are brought in contact. We must, therefore, deal with the Mexioans as with so many half-civiiized beings; it must either be a war of subjugation, or we must create such a fear of us as will force them into terma. Th?>r? in nn miMi thing as getting anything out of the Mexicans through favor; the better they are treated, the more bitter their feelings against us. They muat be whipped into submission, and they will like ua much better for it. They are spaniels in character and disposition. 4We must ride over them rough shed; grind them to the dust; place the moat onerous burdens upon them in the shape of taxes; crush them in every way; and wc shall aoon obtain whatever we tnay ask. If we pursue a milder course, the war will last an age, and nothing short of annexation will bring it to a close. We shall have to absorb and people the country, improve the natives, revolutionize their institutions, and give it a government. Our Mil it ky Academy.?We regret to see that many graduates ot the West Point Military Academy have fallen in the recent engagements with the enemy, before the capture of the capital. No more conelunive nrnnf of the necessity of maintaining and fostering that excellent institution could be furnished than the manner in which her sons have conducted themselves in the present wa The last echo of the revrilU which called the country to arms, had not died away, when the graduates of West Point were seen emerging I rom the city and the country, from the counting-house and from the bench, with their swords by their sides, craving to be enrolled among those who were desirous of leading our armies to meet the enemy. They were irresistibly led to forsake the walks of civil life .vhich they had severally adopted, to punish the enemy who dared to shed their coun- i trymen's bl od on their own soil. The services which they rendered are beyond estimate. By superior discipline and military knowledge, 1 they guided our volunteers and pointed out the way in which their reckless, daring, and impetuous bruverv would be advantnpeou9lv directed. They restrained their impetuosity till the hap- | py mumwt arrived when its effects would tell on the troops opposed to them, ami then, they themselves being the leaders in every case, it poured for n like a torrent, sweeping every obstacle before it. Many a gallant West Pointer has fallen in the present struggle; but they died as they wished to die, with the Hag of their country waving victoriously over them, and amid the cheers ot their conquering comrades. Their memories will be revered?their services will not be forgotten. Before the breaking out of this war, an onslaught was made on this institution by persons ignorant of, or incapable of forming an opinion of iti importance to our country The unfounded statement that it was a nursery of aristocracy, was made againat it in and out of Congress, and to such lengths was this reckless and unmeaning crusade carried, that the friends of the institution feared that it might, like other valuable institutions, fall a victim to prejudice and ignorance. Common sense, however, pre vailed, and it was spared, to falsity in the most positive manner, the libels that were no often repeated against it. What now becomes of the charge of aristocracy 1 What of the assertion that it was a nursery of indolence t Without Weet Point, would our arms have been no victorious as they have been ^ Would we have acoompliafaed so many successive victories an we have accomplished if there were not military kill and acience in the country to direct our troopa 1 Would we have furnished, as we have, a contradictioa of the foul nlandera that the Eu. ropean press has belched forth against ua from time to time for half a century 1 And, finally, would we stand in the proud poaition that we now occupy, as a nation whose policy always has been peace, but who, when forced to repel in insult or punish aggression, has the power and ability to do so 1 None more heartily admireathe bravery of our volunteer* than we do. We have al ways thought it beyond suspicion, and when the time came, we were confident we should not be mistaken in our impressions. The time did come, and the whole world knows the result. Difficulties apparently insuperable were overcome?armies treble and quadruple were met and overcome; ' and a road of glory, without a parallel in ancient or modern times, was hewn out by the spirit of pur volunteers. But while we accord to the i* i. ? volunteers all thu and mora, we mtist be fir- < nutted to say that bravery in not science, and that without discipline and military skill, tha results of the campaign would net have been 10 brilliant as tkey are. 9oxx or thx Hkroes or thb War.?We give in another column brief sketches of several of those who fell in the terrible battles fought in capturing the capital of Mexico. They will be read with the greatest interest. We announced yesterday the name of Major , Levi Twiggs, as being among the number of the killed in the engagement before the gates of Mexico on the 13th ult. The gallant Major was the brother of the worthy Genera! Twiggs, and father to the lamented Lieut. George Decatur j Twiggs,who so nobly fell at the Puente Nacional on the 12th of August Major Twiggs distinguished himself during the late war with England on several occasions, particularly on board the Pennsylvania, and was taken prisoner. In every position in which he was placed he showed himself worthy of the highest trust. He was a man pussessed of undaunted bravery, which was coupled with a discriminating judgment, without which bravery is of little importance. He was gifted with an unusual mind, and he did not neglect the talents which nature gave him. He made himself thoroughly familiar with the duti?s of his profession, and of a man, a citizen, father, husband and friend. He was admired and loved I by all who were fortunate enough to be under I his aommand. A more kind, humane officer never lived. His constant aim was to render all around him happy, and in this he was eminently successful. Our country has lost, in Major Twiggs, a worthy and devoted servant, who, from early manhood, devoted himself to its welfare with energy and perseverence. Well may the State of Georgia proudly claim hirn as one of her noblest sons; and well may they mourn his sad decease. To the family, cons-sting of an ufflicted widow and three devoted daughters, residing at the Philadelphia marine barracks, the loss is painfully severe. Scarcely is it two weeks since they i were plunged into deep grief by the death of an only son and brother, Lieut. Geo. D. Twiggs; but now the death of a husband and father is added, to complete their affliction. The Soi thernkr left yesterday afternoon, for Charleston, absolutely loaded down with passengers.

Theatrical and Musical. Park Theatre.?1The beautiful opera of " Norma" was again preR?nt?d at the Park last evening, and was performed in a style even more pleasing than on its former presentation by th? same troupe. We have never heard Madame Bishop sing better than she did on this occasion, and the other parts were well sustained. The opera-goers are oertalnly Indebted to the oharmlngprima donna for the production of this favorite piece in so excellent a manner. M'lle Korsinski exoelled her former performances, and was duly appreciated by the audlenoe gigaor Valtellina was reoeived as his performances deserved, with Immense applause. He is uniformly good. Mr. Reeves Is beooming more at home on the stage, and will assuredly broom? a great favorite; bis clear voioe and very good execution cannot fall to gain for him an enviable reputation. " Norma" will be repeated on Monday evening. Bowery Theatre ?The dramatio speotacleof" The Siege of Monterey,or the Triumph of Rough and Ready," has been withdrawn for the present, In order to make room for another spl'endld dramatic pieoe, which has been In preparation for a long time past, and which will be | produced to-morrow evening in the same splendid style ' as was the " Siege of Monterey," with new soenery, pro- j perties and oostomes, Sco.

We prediot for it perfect and oomplete suocess. Chatham Theatrk.?Mr. De Bar and Miu H.' Vallee having been engaged by the manager of the Chatham for a short time, will make their appearance on the boards of that theatre on Monday evening, and will appear in two favorite pleoes?in the " Dumb Girl of Genoa." and in the ballet of the " Spirit of the Fountain." In the first named pieoe Mr De Bar will personate Strappado, the drunken eorporal, and Miss Valine that ot the Dnmb Girl. In the other, Miss Vallee will personate Leolvn, and Mr De Bar. Conrad. The new drama, the u Mill of Ryiand," will oonolude the even- I log's amusements. Between the pleoes Miss Vallee will | Krform the trial danee In La Bayadere," .and also. company with Mr. Vates, the " Fas le Ncapolitain." With such attractions sucoess Is Inevitable. Circus?Bowcav Amfhitheatre.?Mr. Tryon ha* certainly no reason to oomplain of his luck last week, for he has had full houses every night; but the fact is, that he seleots judiciously, and with suoh tact, that he he oannot tall to please every one. The coming week he will have the assistance or the famous clown. Dan Rice, who being on a visit to the city for a few days has been engaged. Besides Dan, he will have splendid attractions of various kinds, to which we shall revert hereafter. C'hriitv'i Minitrkls.?This exoellent band of negrn minstrels are doing wonders at Mechanics' Hall, Broadway. The room is arovded every night. There is a va- j rietv in their performances, which seem* to please every . visiter The bone plaver Is certalnlv the best we have ?ver beard, and the full round tone* of the bun voice Mr Raynlr, is a gre*t addition to their respeotive chorused To-morrow evening they present a varied and .musing programme. ETHioriA* Si.ricmadiai.?To" say, after four week? performance, that these minrtrel* are refined musicians would be superflous, as they have not only earned that title in Europe, but have had, previous to their departure. sufficient testlmom in Palmo's theatre, and in fact throughout the Union, from discerning American audi- ; ences, that their musical abilities were of a high order, and their harmony In the negro melodies perfectly euphonious They sing a variety of songs and choruses tomorrow evening. Ma. Dimmteb has put forth his bill for a second eoncert during the coming week. Wednesday evening next Is the night set down when he will bring forward many of his sweetest songs. His oonoert last week was exoellently attended, and we have no doubt his next one will also be. Siono* Blitz.?This admirable professor of msgio and ventriloquism has finally consented to remain among us one week more. The very full and satisfied audiences he has bad lately have brought him to thi* determination, and we are satisfied he is oorreet In doing so. Another week, then, of fua In store. Da.

Tb* Vi?nnoUe children are as popular aa ever in Philadelphia. T. O. Booth, th* comedian, is at Cincinnati. Among the papers of Dr. Coolidge, (who stands accused of thn murder of Mr. Matthews, of Maine) was found a bill from Joseph Hurnett, apothecary, Tremont street. Boston, for a'juantity of hydroolanio acid. An account of this discovery was sent to Marshal Tukey. and after some trouble the original order for th* same waa found among the sweeping* in Mr. B.'s shop. Th? suspicion that Matthew* waa first poisoned is strength j ened by this dlfloovery.--JBotfn T'rantcripl, Oct. 2J. i Procirflimi ot ttw RfUciptl Convention i { % FIFTEENTH PAY. Etemino Soiion. The chair sailed the convention to order at 7 o'clock, pursuant to adjournment K b?m<? ?m reoetred frail the House of Bishops otating that they b?4 dmmi! canou l?t and 2<1 .appended toth? report on the NewYork ; resolutions wtth certain amendments. The 3d canon, M mended read?. as follow* ? "O/ the Pmalty of Suipmiinn. I " Whenever the penalty of suspension *hall be inflicted on a bShop, priest or d>*aooo, in thla church, the sentence shall specify whether such suspension be perpetI nal.or not. and if not perpetual, on what terms, or at I what time said penalty shall cease " Canon 3d Is amended so as to make the disability of . the blsbep contemplated a disability " by reason of a j judicial sentence,'1 only tne words ''or from any other cause," being stritken ont in two cases where they 1 | occur Tne oaoous, as amended, haying bean read, wera laid ' on the table. Dr Ooilb* then resumed his remarks Heaomme-o^d j by recapitulating the points presented In tha morning i tie then proceeded to the third ground in support of his ; first proposition by his raverend brother-that snupen : sion,without any limit, was deposition ? that It was toI tal and not only total, but forever, on the griund that j tlma was essential to susnension. Ha thoushi tha argument waak and untenable Tha naxt topic treated of bv hl? reverend brotbar. iu tha new and dlfflsult topic or Jurisdiction Tha first poaltlon ocoupled by tha u?ntlaman with regard to thU su^jeot. *ti thin : that Jurisdiction waa not oonneoud wi'h banafloa. but with offloe Dr Hawses said tha gentleman waa not toushlng hi* argument. Ha maintained that suapmuion from offloe took away Jurisdiction Dr. Ooilbv proceeded If he misunderstood the gentleman. ha waa perfectly willing to do him jnation than Ha was bou"d to lay with all raapaot to tha gentleman, ha nerer heard a man. in the apace of an hour, advanced so many oonSlotlng arguments in ao chaotio a mam of strange poaitiooi. Dr. O. then prooteded to review the various positions ofthe gentleman from La. One of those was that the dlooeae waa vacant, de facta, by tha act of tha bishop. By what act ha knew not. unless it was by events antecedent to tha trial of the bishop Ha believed it waa not vacated by tha bishop, but by the sentence ofthe court The case of tha Bishop of''logher. in Ireland, he said did not sustain his case; for the Bishop of Clogher was totally deprived of his offloe, and degraded. The cases of Bishop Prevost and Chase, were also anomalous cases, and did not add weight to the gentleman's argument. By the oommon law of the church, he contended that a hishop could not void his jurisdiction The House of Bishops alone could give jurisdiction, and they alone could take It away. The next argument of his reverend brother was that the oommon sense view of the subject must lead them to consider tha diooase vacant He said that he who could not disohargethe dutlea of the offloe. wis out of offloe, r rnnv.no. The inability to discbarge the duties of the office, the gentleman contended voided the offloe This view would be very convenient to a great many alck rectora. Again, the gent'eman went on to show that all suspension was not degradation, that sometimes it meant exoommunloation. Thi* might be the oaae in the mother ohuroh of Rome, but not in the Episcopal church of the United States Again his reverend brother asked what oould tha general convention do to meet the exigencies of the present case He agreed with him that the powers of this body were legislative, and that atradvlsorv nrari native mlirht be employed; what then? HU brother then wanton to dlsouss the varloui remedies?1st, by a provisional blabop. He ag'eed with his brother, that thin was not the proper remedy. He did not agree, however, to refuse to accede to the proposition because it opened a door through which convloted guilt might enter. Might It not be a duty to hold opes a door through which a penitent slaner (he judged not) uilght enter' With reference to an assistant bishop, his reverend brother expended a little wit to little purpose?his sallies of wit were shots, fired in the air. Then he came to the only alternative?and here he joined hand and heart with him?that thts diocese shoull have its own dlooetan. The diocese should rather suffer a little privation of episoopal services than not have one whom the great body of the dlooese onuld look to as their Utber iu God. But there were those who were unwilling to look forward to the period when they should own this man their father in God. But had any one a right to say that a sinner who had suffered should never be redeemed, or that he should suffer beyond the just measure of his sentenoe ! The sentenoe must be remitted sometime, if the peace of the dloeese would be provided for. There wero difficulties on the one hand as well as on the other. If there were those who would turn their baoks upon the restored bishop, there were those who oould never look upon a bishop appointed in bis place with proper feelings AU must admit ttut there were great difficulties to be met. Mr. Whaston, of Pennsylvania, begged leave to offer a few remarks. He considered the question simply a question with regard to the construction of the canon There were two questions, if they eould settle whloh, he believed that the whole question would be settled. The first question to bn deoided was the meaning of the word suspension, in the canon of 1844. It might be entirely true ; he believed It to be true, that whatever may have been the meaning of the word at an earlier period of'the church, it bad a very different meaning in that oanon. So much of the ancient meaning of the word suspension as made that word equivalent to degradation, was out off from It by the oanon of 1844, and carried ever to the word degradation. If the words hail not a dlstinot meaning, the words were tautologous The meaning of the word was fixed, he contended, in the oanon porn eiprnnif, i?mu uih meg i omnop vu guomoned to trial, if he negltct or refuse to appear, they should pronounce him to be In contumacy, aud sentence of " suspension " should be pronounced against htm; but the sentence should be rev?rsed If he should appear within three months. But if the aocused should not present himself before the expiration of the said threw months, sentence of "deposition '' should be pronounced against him; thus clearly distinguishing between the terms ''suspension " and ''deposition," or degradation, and showing that the former was not identical with the latter, as the gentleman bad argued. If the word suspension and the sentence meant the same as in the canon?if the word did notmean?degradation?it was not neoeBsary to settle what It did mean. Hli learned friend from Louisiana saw this view, and contended that th e sentence was equivalent to drgradation. Now what was the effect of the sentence upon Bishop Onderdonk* This question he did not approach, sinoe Is had been so ably argued. It was Immaterial In what manner the bishop got his jurisdiction He had it. The practical question, then, was not how he got it. but how he oonld lose it On this subject Blackstone laid down the position that a bishopric could not be taken away from a bishop exoept in case of three ways. 1st Death. 2d. Resignation 3d. Deprivation by competent authority. The first was not applicable; Bishop Onderdonk was allv*. The second was not applicable; Bishop Onderdonk bad not resigned The simple question then was, whether be was deprived of jurisdiction?whether suspension, under tbelroanon, deprived him of jurisdiction ? Admitting the argument of his friend from Louisiana, that jurisdiction belonged to office?if the office were tiken awav forever, the jurisdiction was taken away forever, if it be according to his argument that Ood had joined jurisdiction and office. then man could not put them asuunder Hi? friend bad admitted thin in the whole ef his argument, that if the office be only suspended. the jurisdiction vu only impended. If the office and the juris 'lotion were indisHolubly connected, than that convention could no more take from tb<> bishop his jurisdiction than they could take from him his house. Suppose the sentence did not take away bis salary, this house conld not take it away Now what should be done ' It was always the hardest thing that could be done to advise a man who was in a state of great anxiety, to do nothing To do nothing under such circumstances was, Indeed, hard work. But if the olergy of the diocese of New York and others interred in the case, had been praying for direotion and assistance they might expect relief Let them then, sit down and In the exercise of true faith fold their arms and wait on Ood. He would give them the peace which they desired A motion to adjourn was here made. Before patting the question, Hon Mr. Huktiwotow, of Conneoticut, moved that the vote on the resolutions of the diocese of New York be taken up to-morrow at two o'clock The motion not being entertained, the house then adourned. SIXTEENTH DAT. Morning prayer was read by the Rev. Dr. Curr, of Pennsylvania, and the lessons of the day by the Hev Dr Watsou, of New Jersey The minutes of yesterday's proceedings were read and approved I.eavH of absence was then granted to certain members, whose names were reported by the Committee on Elections, and also to those who had left without con suiting me oomrniiiee. Rev. Dr Jahtis, Chairman of the Committee oil Canon*. reported a canon drawn up In conformity with threquest thut the canons of the church be so amended aa to require that the testimonials of a bishop elect should in all oaaei be submitted to the aotloa of the standing oommlttee* of the several dioceses, and In no oase to that of this home. The oanon was ordered to be printed. lion Mr. Nr.wto*, of Massachusetts then offered the following resolution, which was adopted:? Unsolved, That this house do proceed on Monday next, at 13 o'olock, to ballot for a committee on the part of this house, to act with a committee on the part of the House of Bishaps, to nominate a Board of Missions. The order of the day was then taken up. w&en Rev. Or. Fomki rose and withdrew the resolution which be had offered a few days ago. He thought the Keat difficulties of this nutation were only beginning to understood, and he thought that the ml ads of some who had expressed their Tiewa would be Induced to change those views. The diocese of New York asked not for relief simply as bad been aald, but for relief froui their anomalous position. They asked for it so far as It was consistent for that house to grant It They asked the convention to disentangle the knot of tkelr dlfflcul ties with the finger of law. er not at all Th* gentleman had sneered at the Idea tnat the sentenoe wu a nullity If th? dlorHMM Wftfl ra.AA.nt th? annt.onm mint Ua A millltv He had thought that the proviso bo had added would meet the difficulty He knew that It would not oome up to tha view* of many, bat h? thought It Inlr and coo dilatory to all, Hon .1.

Inokmoll then renewed tha two oanons which ha offered tha other day a* a lubstltute to the proposition before the oonse Juoor Cm Mints* asked If the proposition waainorder Mr I mi >:*?<>i.i. explained the question, And the proposition wm entertained. The canons having been road by the Secretary, together with the other proposition* before the bouse, Rev. Mr McKarland,of Virginia, then addressed the beuse HI* object wai to ascertain what was due to ttie diocese of New York, and what were the duties of lhaV house In the present exigencies. They were peculiarly liable?It was natural?to disregard the strlet claims of justice, ont of sympathy for the Individual This fact should be borne in mind In the present case la their anxiety to relieve the bishop they bad almost forgotten th.it they were called upon to relieve the diocese Would New York be oontented with a suspended bishop? Would she rest satisfied with the mere name of a bishop ' Hhe had no episcopate < oold she forego the performance of the duties of a bishop ' The great question which they must decide, was whether In respeot to thcM offices which weie for the good of the public and not for the good of Individuals, the community must forego tba enjoyment of the functions of the office bearer ; the functionary was disabled Admit that a suspension so far epera ted upon the sentence as to affect the eplsoopacy, did It then follow tbat a seutenoe of suspension m wi .m - ' ". luuiij.' .. to dapoaMoa f AunUMto ?hoot.?*d ! a sentence to bang, might prod no* the umi result?the death of the Individual; bat did it follow that a antract to bang aad a eentenoe to aboot ware equivalent' A sentence or auafaulon, ha urged. oonsiier ft in what- ' evar light they might, did Imply a laaa degree of guilt tbaa a eentenoe of depoaitton. f A mama** from tba house of blihopa waa ban read, stating that they did not concur witb the bouaa of delrgates la the proposed amendment to tha constitution, changing tba time of tha maeting of tba general coa entioa to the thir l Wednesday In September, but th?t ; they unanlmoualy propoacd. tha houaa of delegates concurring. to inaert in tba resolution " the first Wednesday in September."] Though it was tree that the suspension did not depose | the dlooesan. it was still true that the effect of the suspension might be such as to separate the diocesan from { the dlooeae Suspersiou and deposition, he proceeded to show, were not identical. It had been contended that the sentence was a nullity. If so It ought not to have { any effect upon the biahop But grant it a nullity, who j wu to pronounne the judgment that It was a nullity f Nothing short of Judicial power oould do it. Hence, as I the convention had no judicial powers, there was no propriety In considering it as a nullity 1* this discussion It' I waa contended that the eentenoe was a nullity beeanse , it assigned no limit to the suspension. The oanon assigned no limit , it was general The duration of the eentenoe was aaaigned te tba judgment of the oonrt. Not a civil jurlat upon that floor would haaard the opinion that while the oourt bad that power to pronounce sentence of deposition or suspension, the oourt having prououncea sencenoe 01 suspension, meir judgment oouid be arraigned by that power. If not, the argument that the sentenoc was* nullity waa overthrown. Was the dlooese then vaoant? Bj what tenure did the bishop* hold their office ? They held it by no other tenure thin during good behaviour, whloh waa sutyeet to judlolal deoiflon. They held it by a tenure which required fidelity. purity, undivided devotion to the duties of the oflloe. When the bishop should be proved by oompetent eocleslastloal authority to be unfaithful or to give offence, he forfeited that tenure But whatever might be their aotlon with regard to the bishop, it was their aoiemn duty to provide for the episoopal wants of the dlooese. They had no right to deprive the dlooesu of the olear light of heaven, radiated through the episcopate. He shonld be told that the law did not provide lor the oaee?that the reports furnished no precedents. Be it so. Could nothing be done? Why yea; George III. was proneunoed a lunatio, and there was no precedent But no one doubted that parliament had a right to provide for the case, and they did provi Je. Suppose a presbyter suspended from oflloe, would any one say that the door or the church must be olosed till he could be restored 7 What other oonolusioo could smuU, than that a sympathy for the suspended presbyter was of more oonsequenoe than the dispensaton of the saored rites of religion? Suppose they meet in general convention twenty years hence, and flud that Bishop Onderdonk is not restored, and that the dlooese had all this time been

without an episcopate. Who would not decry the memory of those who had suffered such a disastrous state of things In the church ? These were times when they must act upon the plain acknowledged principles of coomon senile Cases would inevitably arise in the course of events, to whloh history afforded MMMkfj He would suggest one Idea, whloh he believed would be indisputable, via: that the bishop ought to rsaiga Ma credentials; but it was a very grave question whether 1m had a right to resign his oflloe. Hs bow contended, that the house were not at liberty to withhold relief to the dlooese of New York Let them All, or authorise the dlooese to All, the vacanoy; still, if the bishop should la the providence of God, be restored, he wrmld stilt be an officer in the ohuroh. and would not require to be re-eoaseorated. Here was seen a radical difference between suspension and deposition. U nfortunately the dlossss of New York was not agreed as to what oourse was beet If they were agreed, ho would cheerfully grant them the fall extent of their wishes, so far as he oould do it without the sacrifice of honest convictions But as they were, it was the part of tho general convention to decide what must be done. Might not then justice be done to the bishop?the late bishop of New York?and yet provision be made for the diocese ? He believed so. Let them determine that the episoopate was essential to the welfare of the church, essential as one of heaven's means ui grtiues wivuuub wuicu me cuurcu wuuiu oe aepriTsa of the mean* of spiritual growth, and he would almost say, that it would be impiety lu them to withhold the episoopate. Judge Chambers moved that a committee of oonferenoe be appointed on the message from the Houie of Bishops, with referenoe to the time of the meeting of the general convention. The seoretary suggested that the proper mode would be, first to reoede from their own resolution. The house aooordingly voted to reoede, and then oonourred In the amendment of the House of Bishops [It is Important to note that this resolution will net affect the time of the assembling of the next general convention, inasmuch as it eontemplates an alteration of the constitution, which cannot be made before the next convention ] Another message from the House of Bishops wfcs here received.'tating that the Houee of Bishops had appointed Bishops Doane, Kemper and Henshaw, as members of the committee, on their part, on the nomination of a board of missions, Judge Chambebi rose to address the house but gave way to the Rev. Dr. Shkiiwood, of New York. He said they had spoken enough, and it was time for them to begin to act. Though the little resolution which oarnu from New York had originated the debate, the resolution from that diocese had almost been forgotten amid the multiplicity of propositions whloh bad been laid before them He would beg leave therefore, to recall the attention of the house to that resolution. While he regretted that Ms worthy and excellent colleague had felt disposed to deolare his individual opinion with regard to the eonduot of the bishop, he would at the same time admit that the manaer In whloh he declared It was respectful, and worthy of the man. He also would deolare his individual opinion. It was different from that of his Rev. brother ? Vet he did not believe him to be guilty of the orimes which hau been charged upon bim. He then read the first resolution of the diocese of New York, and in view of the remark that the dlooese had asked nothing, he begged leave to explain the resolution The resolution. In oalling for justice to be done to the dlooese, supposed that Injustice had been done to her; first. In the oanon on the subject; and again, by the presentment under It ? - lni.I/.. M.K.h! t,. no great a dlstanoe to try the bishop of New York This diocese had never been backward to vindicate its own moral purity. The Chair at thin point interrupted the speaker, and reluctantly stated, that the latter part or his remark was out of order. One or two gentlemen expressed the opinion that the gentleman was in ord?r and Dr. Sherwood proceeded : It should be remembered that the resolution came from the dloeese of New York, with the unanimous consent of the whole convention, and the relief asked for was the unconditional removal of the sentence. Let this be done, and his word for it, In less time than they had consumed in discussing the matter, the whole difficulties of the diooese of New York, if not settled, would be put in a train of settlement, in suoh a manner as would be satisfactory to all concerned. Judge Chambers was about to go on with his remarks, when Rev. Mr. Forres rose and expressed the wish to say a single word. He wished simply to say that the gentleman from Maryland was perfectly right when he snid that these resolutions came not from himself. [Or. K ]. but from the diocese. His reverend brother, who bad just spoken, had but recently come into the convention, and, therefore, was not so well informed on the point. Mr. Verflank desired to make a single remark Having been absent from the olty, he had just learned that a proposition had been offered, requiring the consent of that house to the restoration of the bishop It struok him that the adoption of that proposition wonld lie exceeuiugiy uoiortunai" in practice, ana vttry duo hi preoedent. He briefly explained tbe grounds of theae opinion*. Judge Chamikrh whs now suffered to proceed with hi* remark/1. He had no deposition to argue the proposition of the gentleman trom New York He proposed to address himself to two principles: 1st. The canonical Import, meaning and effeot of the sentenoe, and in defence of his own proposition and in resistance to that 1 the gentleman lrom Pennsylvania : and 'Jdly. the authority. consistently with the canonical effeot of tbe sentence which the convention had to give the relief which Uie report of tbe joint committee proposed to give. Before doing thU, however, he proposed to consider some ot tbe objection* which bad been urged. They bad heard a treat deal about juatloe to New York. They had heard a great deal ef the enormity of withholding relief from the diocese of New York. They had even been told that they would withhold from tbe diocese means of grace. He waa surprised?startled at such ex pressiona. Tbey oould not withhold from churchmen tbe mean* of grace Tbe conclusion was that If Bishop OndeHonk should not be restored, or an episcooate couseorstea In his place?that if Bishop Onderdonk should live twenty years or ao ?the diooese would be in a complete state or heathenism. With auch a bench ol bishop* as they now had, such a contingency, could never happsn. The mereat ohild In eccreftaatioai affaire would readily da away with thla bugbear They had been referred to the tenor of Flniaoonal authority and they had been asked to form their opinion aft?>r the analogy </f oiril regulation* Now the truth w*? th*t the church ?m In no reipect aualogou* to olvll instltutioni. 0*11 institution* oould b? originated and changed ?tthe Initanoe of mere human Institution* Wm th> chureh 10 at the disposal of men ?

The gentleman Inilsted upon comparing apirltual thing* with temporal. Mr. MoFARLano thought gentleman had miioon trued hla remark*, and ezp'ained them. He oontended that the church waaofdi^'n* inatitutlon, not human. Judge Ch<mhi>i waa ?*PPy to be oorreoted He could not agree to the doetrtne that euapenaion in civil affair* wm at all an analogy A>r the ehnreh Dot he would go further. Suppose a judge ahould be impended ? Mu*t the court be abut up ? Ye*. if ?uoh a oaM iflould ov*r ocour. But legls latlve bodies hai *een the folly of auapendlng an officer, so Tiridl* that they had made no provision for auoh a oontln??>cy; with regard to the rights ot New Vork, there cdild be no right to ask this convention to do wr~>ng Vhat was the oonsequence of these considerations.'

He would now give a cotempo- 1 raneons exposition by therery men who made the oanon. ; I Mr. Williams said, as the gentleman from Louisiana , waa not in his seat, he was under the Impreeaion that the gentleman was mlsconstruelng bis arguments ' Judge Chamber* explained II? then read from a i paper which he beld in his band, the opinion of two of I the mrst learnedjudges In the Doctors' Commons.

But the ' real effect and construction appears to us to be to pro- I hlbit the bishop from doing any act in his episcopal or < ministerial character, an long as such suspension remains , i in force, and no longer " After adverting to one or two i I other opinions, he now came to the second creation It ; < was one more appropriate, perhaps, to another Branch . ' of the convention. On the subject of restoration tkeir | were two or three preliminary considerations to which the attention of the house had been called. 1st, Whenoe i did the blshdb derive his authority ' Consecration ; would confer it, none would deny, whether he coald obtain It from any other source or not; and it mattered lit- i tie whence he derived his jurisdiction, so long as be had it < Gentlemen had apoke of restoration to oflloe; he must ; be restored to his jurisdiction, not hU offlne- for it. wim ! his jurisdiction that he was nuspended from Whatever , bad been taken from him for a time. that must be restored to him. This remark b? illustrated by supposing a caae of suspended animation. Suppose, said be. a father is thrown into a state of suspended animation. The son meanwhile takes possession of all bis flock* and herds. By and l>y the father is restored to animation: tbe son says, " Father, you are restored to life but not to vaur flocks and herds" [ A laugh ] He thought tbe ft ther would be ery likely to say to his child: " Son. I am restored to all that I lost." lie agreed with his friend from Pennsylvania In recommending aa tbe lsst course in the present case of doubt, to be still, and with the excrclsa of true faith wait the Indications of Providence in their behalf? and he now said that the churoh hud a right to make an appointment ad inlrrim But he would now proceed to show that the relations of the suspended bishop to the diocese were suoh as to prevent them from consecrating | any bishop in his place [Here Judge Chambers read from the proceedings In the trial ot Bishop Onderdonk the opinious of Bishops Lie, John, Heushaw, Freeman, and others, on the signification of the term buspension ] He then referr?d to the opinions of the English churoh. from which he concluded, that wherever suspension existed, there was so far a ijuati vacancy or defect of jurisdiction, th*t the king or appropriate ofBoer oould appoint au oflloer, ad interim, to perform tbe duties of which the prelate was deprived He maintained then that this regal power, or whatever they pleased to call it, was vested in this body. Tbe churoh had all its power. He rejoloed to say that the State had now power to control the action of the church If so, how oould gentlemen entertain a doubt upon tbe propriety of domg what the joint committee hadrecomMen dad. viz : to do just what had frequeutly been done lo England, but what had not been done here for want of opportunity f The church then had the power to taake ample and satisfactory provision for tbe wants of all bar children?whether In New V'ork or elsewhere? It WM not In bar power to obstruct their passage toward* heaven in tbe manner the gentleman had foreboded !t >vai demonstrable, in his opinion, that the appointmeat of a diocesan was impossible. The diocese was full The aaaaar* .that be bad proposed, he ooncluded, mettheoaseln a ta> -or ana ruuer manner man any other proportion. He U "recated Jhese cominotioaa in the church. Ha had beea'ttt the service of the church a quarter of a century?he had seen darker clouds?ho heard deeper Isaasntattona?bnt A * had never failed to hear the still rmaU voice saying, " 7enM.be ittU," and felt that the chjiroh night now repd:* on the etroa? arm upon which the church hai ever repo.*ed In timet of trial, with gaiety Rev Dr. Mason rose to address the hooM." A tantion to adjourn was made, bat withdraw 1; when l)r Van Ingen inquired, if it would not beV?U to take the vote at onoe on the question, whether the' diocese wag vacant. Dr. Mason said be did not anticipate that a loek wat to be put upon his lips. A motion was here made that the house adjourn until Monday. The Secretary then laid before the house the treasurer's report, and moved that it be referred to the Committee oa Expensed, which whs agreed to. Mr. Williams proposed to offer an amendment to the substitute before the house, on oertain conditions ; but we did not understand him as submitting any proposition. Hon. Mr. Huntington here moved that the housu take a vote on the subject under consideration, on Monday at 1-2 o'clock. If not taken as soon as that, many 1 mu?t leave before action was had. Several members seoonded the motion. Mr. Philif Williams insisted, that they oould not ! take the vote at so early a day. They must sue the end ; of the debate more clearly than they did now, before they oould vote understanding^. He regretted such i impatience. Rev. Mr. Clark, of Kentucky, moved to amend the motion, so as to restrict the speakers on this subject to thirty minuies each mi. w .-(.i tv,.> ..nn.tuntinn i freedom of debate. This ?u the first time he had seen an attempt ta restrict that freedom. He moved to lay the whole subject on the table; whioh question was than put and lost. The Chair was about to put the question on the proposition. when Mr. Williams renewed the motion to adjourn. The Skcbetarv read an invitation from H?nry Krbon, requesting the members of the House of Delegatus to , hear some performances on the organ in Trinity Church, by a number of professional gentlemen, on Tuesday ere- | ning next, at 7>? o'clock.
