Thia ia not a new idea? it i# an ?W Anglo Saxon one. Know Nothings agree entire1^ tie Anglo-Saxon# in that re# sect They saw. or might have ?eel, there waa net a Catholic priest, out CatLoUc priests In the country, distinguished for any thing but his Catholicity? none distinguished for poetry, science, philanthropy, or anything else. They? the Know Nothings ? organized them#elve# with astonishing ?kill. Th*lr secresy wa# anything that wa? no. con sistent with Americanism or Anglo^Saxoniami but oir cumat*nc(B made it convenient They had tl t?o shibboleths "Mo foreigners in power; No Catholfe in power." The feeling of the better part of the North was adverse to tlie two old parties-whig and demosratlo ?and so joined the new one. They were dUgusted with the small men put in the Presidential chair, from H?rn scn down to Pierce, gradually tapering down to a Tanish iig point in Mr. Werce. (Ltughter.) The tecre.y of the party made it attractive. Many jo'jnad ? through curiosity; they went in to " mo the ewphant, saw it. It may be wondered why those men did not join the free soil party ; but Uiat party had too its hold on the can&dence of th# people, byooquetttog with the two old pirtlef. Many of the ol(3 JwUers went over to the new American party. Amongthemaome ?r their Generals went over, 00?PJi,l?lAh*^n^7I1? had addressed them last night, (Senator wilron ) ( Applause.) I hope he will roon dewrve your applause by another title. Many others joined them bro?uM . they wero tired of lying on one side, and so they turned over. Bating its secresy, its objections to foreigner#, and it# objections to Roman Catholics, all which ne did not like, It was all right. But old oorrupt hacks went Into the party? Know Nothings In reality, mental Idiots, who went In for the spoiK The Know Nothing tornado had a wept up a laree quantity of miscellaneous rubbish, and now bears it in Its bosoin; and alas for the countiy where that rubbish will be deposited ! (Loud lanchter and applams* ) In the South, these two nega tive ideaa? hostility to foreigners and hoatllity to Ca'ho lics-are the only ideas that hold the party. But in the Know Nothings of the South there wa? as much ho# tility to abolitionism as there wa# In either the whig or the democratic partle#. There it Is only the contest for spoils. And why should the South oppose f"o'goers snd Catholics? Why, the Catholicism of Spain and Mexico, and France, is better than the Protestantism of Virginia. (Applause.) The Northern hostility to foreigners wiU not last; th?r *IU not Uke to deprive the country of $1CO.OOO.OCO, the value of each annual orop of forelKnera. The boBtllity to Catholics will not last, for I think the Know Nothing party Is a little bit "streaked, anil ashamed of the Massachussett# Legislature, and I do not think that they will like to entrust the supervi sion of a convent to such a man a*? as? a*? (hute? from the parquetto.) That Is It. (Laughter ) Tney wiU not entrust the supervision of convents to a man whose name cannot be pronounced without a msa (Loud laughter.) The American party no unity of principle, can have no unity of action, and so oinnot last. Its ieadicg men muat do one of two th ngB. They must either declare for slavery or againBt it. Jf they declare againe.t it they are fundamentally gone. If they declare for it they are gone too. They may, to be sure, establish a treat anti-slavery party, tor It has pros trated the democratic party? it has prostrated the whig party. (Applause.) And now it can nominate an anti SavMy President. Will it do so t Will It have the con rase to do so r Gentlemen, I have fear#; ladles, I h?ve hopes. Mr. President, I need not declare whether my hopes or fears are the strongest. (Applause.) In Maa sachussets the Know Nothing party ha* already done ereat thingB In behal! of aboUtlonUm. It has brought together a Legislature In which there are only six peT i ona not belonging to the American party. They never had a Legfalature representing so lUtte th? moneyed classes, but they never had ft l^glslature em^ bracing to much justice, so mueh humanity, , and so much love of freedom a# the present Legislature of Ma#Bachusetts. That LeglsUtare had among other things taksn off all restriction as to color In the admia slon to tbe pnblle school*; and It had deprived of hU of fl;e a judge who delivered up a man to the *laveholder. (Applause.) In conclusion, the speaker laid down the following whica he urged upon tie anti ,toraai;?.u4^a.oui.i.t?o.i?w. ?* ? all the United States territory. 1. Abolish the American slave trade on the sea, re peal the Fugitive Slave Law. &e. .... . , ^ Declare that no flave SUte shaU ia future be ad mltted Into the Cnion. ?? 4.

(Applause and demon strations of agreement ) And now, he continued, the great qnestion for the next Presidential election Is, "Shall we have a Turkish or Russian President, In favor of despotism, or shall we have a President whose sympathies are ou the side of II berty?n (Loud applau?e, during which Mr. Paxker took blMr"wK5D?LL Pmuips, of Bo#ton , waa next introduced to and addressed tho meeting, travelling over muah tbe same line of argument as tho other speakers had done. ?fteT anothf r song from the Hutchinson*, the meet Ing separated at a quarter paat two o'clock P.

Hon. WauaM J at, In introducing the honorable Sena tor, said he wa# " a Northern Senator, on whom nature had conferred the unusual gift of a backbone? a man who, standing erect o? the Boor of Oosgrs##, amid creep ing things from tho North, with Christian fidelity de nounces the stupenaou# wlekedn### of the Fugitive law and th# Nebraska perfidy; and, in the nam# of liberty, humanity and religion, demand# the repeal of thoee moit atrocious enactment#." 8KNAT0K SnmriR'fl LSOTUBI. Mr. Brum commenced wi?h a glue* at the history of the anti nJerfry enterpriie from the time of the abo lition riot* in 1836 down to the present time, when he thought the mum bad become popular. The Bret point argued by the honorable Senator waa that slavery, for the honor of human nature and the gool of all ooneern ed, nheoM cnii to ex let, and at onoe. He quoted from Jadg? Btrond and other* to prove that a alare, as cording te law, le an article of property? a chattel per eonaL The averment that slaves are treated kindly wan no argument against theee fact* In the law. Power, he raid, divorced from right te devOteh; power without the chert of reeponsibility le tyrannical ; and I need not go back to the authority of Halo, when 1 aeeert that the meet complete iajastioe te that which ia erected into the form of law. But all theee things concur la ilavery. It te, then, on the teetfmoay of elave maelere, lolemnly, legislatively, judicially attested, In the very law iteedf, that I now arraign thte institution ae an outrage upon man and hie Creator. And hem te the ninety of that Mtf atom/ euterprief, A wrtaf m> tnupoeadeat, ** ImMhiwi, so direful, moat bo ??cooatoMl wktmw tk eaa be reached, and the battlo must be continued with out truce or wyrmtat, until the field la aVxnlj woo. Freedom ud slaver y caa hold na divided empire-, nor cm there be as* troe repoea until freedom ie every where established. The ip??kar proceeded to axamine the questions af th* distinction ot races an 1 tba alleged unction of il?Tf rjr by Christianity. Tba negro, ho said, vaa a man, and science eoitld make him aotolai mora or lean. Then be is entitled to ail tba right* of mas. You can claim nothing for yourself, aa man, which yon muat not accord to him. Ufa, liberty and the pursuit of hap piness ? which yon proudly declare to be your awn in a ienabla, Godriven right*, and to tha rapport of which Iour father* pledged their I yea, fortunes. and saered opor ? are bia by tba mum immortal title that they are yours. Re held that there ww nothing ia the holy writing* to unction slavery, and particularly examined Paul's letter to Philemon In relation to the bonOsm&n Ooesimus. He bald that Onesimna was mentioned by Paul as an ?qui, not as a slave. The Senator next pas-ted to tba discus sion of the practicability of the enterprise The antl ? Is very enterprise, he sa*d, does not undertake to chinge human nature, or to force any individual into rela tions of lift for which he ia not ssorally, intellectually and socially adapted, nor doe* it necessarily assume that a race, degraded for long generations under the iron heel of bondage, can b? lifted at once into all the political privileges of an American citizen. But, air, it dees con fidently assume, againbe all question, contradiction, or assault whatever, that every man ia entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit t f happing; and, with equal confidence, it asserts tha*. every individual who wears the human form, whether black or whits, should at once be recognized a* man. I k no. v not. when this is done, what other trials may bo in wai'. far the unhappy Afri can; but I (o krow, that the an ti slavery enterprise will then have triumphed, and the institution of i la very, as defined by existing law, will no longer shock mankind. The question should first, i>e operly m?t and discussed everywhere. Good men will soon find a way to lemove it. The honorable Senator would not advocate compensation for the slaveholders; but such was hie desire "to see the foul fiend of slavery in flight, that he would not hesitate to bnild even a bridge of golde if necessary. to promote his eseaps." He was of the opinion that tne objection of danger to the muter was dene away with by the peaceful emancipation of the slaves in the British West Indies. And yet the cbanoe of danger there was greater far than among us. In onr broad conntry the slaves are overshadowed by a more than six -fold white population. Only In two States ? South Carolina and il'islisippl? do the slaves outnumber tie whites, and- there but slightly; while in the entire slave Stated the whites outnumber the slave* by many millions. But It was otherwise In the British West Indies, where the whites wen overshadowed by a more than six-fold slave population. The slaves were 8(0,000, while the whites numbered only 181.000, dis tributed in different proportions on the different islands. And this dispropoition has since increased rather than diminished, always without danger to the whites. In Jamaica, the largest of theee posses dons, there are now upwards of 400,000 African), and only 37, 000 whites; in Barbadoes, the next largest possession, then are 120,030 Africsns, and only 16.000 whites; in St. Lucia, 19,500 Africans, and only 600 whites; in Tobago, 14,000 Afri cans, and only 600 whites: in Itontserrat, 6,000 Africans, and only 160 whites: and in the Grenadines, upwards of 6,000 African!), and less than SO whites. And vet, in all these pieces, the authorities attest the good behaviour of the Africans. It is further urged that the anti slavery people da mige the cause they would promote and bind the bonds more flrmlv upon tne slaves. The speaker held, in op position, that the enterprise had already accomplished incalculable good. Already, said he, there are signs of change. In oommon rpeecb, as well as ia writing, among slave masters, the bondsman Is no longer called a slave, but a servant? thus, by a soft substitution, con cealing and condemning the true relation. Even news papers in the land of bondage blush with indignation at the hunt of men by bloodhounls, thus protesting against sn unquestionable incident of slavery. Other signs are found in the added comfort of the bIavo, in the enlarged attention to his wants; in the experiments now begin ning, by which the slave ia c nabled to share in the pro fits of bis labor, and thus finally secure his freedom; and, above all, in the consciousness among Blavemasters themselves, that they dwell now, as never before, under the keen observation of an ever wakeful public opinion, quickened bj an ever wakeful public press. Nor Is thlM all. Only lately propositions hare been introduced Into the Legislatures of different States, and countenanced by Governors, to mitigate the existing laws of slavery; and almost while speaking, I have received the drafts of two different memorials? one addressed to the Legis lature of Tuplnla, and the other to that of North Caro lina? asking for the slave three things, which it will be monstrous to refuse, but witch, if conceded, will take from slavery its existing character ? I mean, first, the protection of the marriage relation: secondly, the pro tection of the paternal reUtion; and, thirdly, the privi lege of knowledge. Grant these, and the girdled Upas tree rocn mast die. The ut efulness and benevolence of the enterprise was a sufficient guarantee for itt dignity, and bard words cannot affect it. The speaker then srave his view of the duties of the men of the North in this matter. He held that Congress could do much towards abolition, and it wu the duty of the North to overthrow the slave oli garchy which rules the republic. Said the honorable Senator, with a watchfulness that never sleeps, and an activity that never tires? with as many eyes as Argus, and as many arms as Briareus? the slave oligarchy as. setts its perpetual and insatiate masterdom, now seis ing a broad territory once covered by a time honored ordinance of freedom; now threatening to wrest Cuba from Spain by violent war, or hardly less violent pur chase; now hankering for another slice of Mexico, merely to find new scope for slavery; now proposing once more to open the hUeous, heaven defying slave trade, and thus to rep'enish its shambles- with human flesh; and now, by the lip* of an eminent Senator, as serting an audacious claim to the whole group of the West Indies, whether beld by Holland, Spain, France or England, as, "cur Southern Islands," while it assails the independence of Hay ti, and stretches its treacherous ambition even to the distant valley of the Amazon. He held that if the North should unite to protrate this oligarchy, slavery would be swept away with it. Speak ing of the Fugitive Slave law, he said ft must be made a dead letter while It is unrepealed; not bv violenoe, not by unconstitutional activity or ioterventicn? not even by hi sty conflict between jurisdictions; but by an aroused public opinion, which, in its irresistible might, shall blast with contempt, indignation and abhorrenee all who consent to be its sgents. In conclusion, Mr. Sumner referred to the union of the "enemy," and said: " We. too, must be united. Among us, at last, mutual criticism, crimination and feud, must give place to mu tual sympathy, trust and alliance. Face to faoe against the slave oligarchy must be rallied the united maues of the Ncrth, In compact political association? planted on the ever lasting bsse of justice? knit together by a com mon danger, and by the holy sympathies of humanity ? enkindled by a love of freedom not only for ourselves but for otberr ? determined to emancipate the national government from degrading thraldom? and constituting the backbone party, powerful in numbers, wealth and intelligence, but more powerful still in an inspiring cause. Let this be done, snd the victory will bo ours." NATIONAL COUNCIL OP COLORED PEOPLE. 8EC0ND DAY. The Convention re assembled at the ume pUoe at 3>i P. M.

Whereat, a period of tiro yean lia* elapied tinoe the lait general or lationni convention ol colored Americana wai lummorei to convent in the oity of Rochester, in the Stato of New York; and whereat, the results of said con vention had proved .highly kcnelioial in laying the founds - tion of a plan of union and cncperatlon among tho oppressed for their mutual improvement and elevation; and whereas, it li very desirable that this Council shoal J be brought often in ccrtact with and under the inflnence of its eonstitnents; and whereas it i* believed that snoh a re vision of the preient constitution of the Council, can be made as will remove all hindrances as to ita general adop tion by eur people, anil render it more effloient as an instru mentality in onp elevation and improvement; and whereas, the duty of calling a national convention of our people de volves nponthe National Council? therefore. Resolved, Thst a committee ot; be now appointed to draw up a call for a national convention of colored people, to be held in the city of , State <f New York, on day o? October, IB.'.1).

A discussion arose on the propriety of holding the next meeting at New York, w^ich met with opposition. A member thought it waa highly injudicious to hold the convention la Philadelphia, as 11 oar" reporter (Tribune) wonld not he present to take note*. The blank waa Ail ed np after a short discussion, by inserting Philadelphia. Mr. Langston, of Ohio, waa admitted an honorary member. The ayee end no** on having a national convention on the 16th October next, were taken and carried. Memra. Wilaon, Lewis, Smith and Nell were appointed to pre pare the call. MR. KF.U. ?HT?m TBI HONOR. Mr Kill wanted to give an explanation why he would not vote, but waa choked off by the President; Mr. Bleu, rose and laid he had a motion, bnt wonld at the eame time opp ose it. It waa thia ?That Mr. Nell be exensed from acting on that committee. Mr. Nell last night, he said, was not exensed from voting, and thns committed himself to all Intents and purposes. . If he had any eorerienti<>us scruples he should have stated them last night, It waa important to know who waa with them and who wasn't. >*. NKIX IirtAtNS. Mr. Nxt.i said he bad made up his mind not to oome to this Council, but met a friend in the street, who seduoed him into the Council. The vote last evening waa given under protest. Mr. Down no wanted to know if Mr. Nell claimed to be a member of thia august body? The Chair stated that the question was whether Mr. Nell should be excused from acting oa the ooasmittoe. Mr Dououtsi was opposed to his being exeneed. Let Mr. Nell vote with us or leave us; it is important to know who are with us and who are not. Mr. Wiiaojr believed that Mr. Neil's scruples were in regard to the illegality of this convention. It wu not that his sympathise were opposed to them, bnt it was certain scruples which operated on his mind. nra wr.vcrt looks i>ark ahd stormy, Mr. Mto?? If Mr. Nell Is to represent Massachusetts, let him do ea; If not, let him resign. A vote was taken on excusing Mr. Nell from acting on the Finanoe Committee. The result waa nine nays and | thiee ayee. Mr. Nell was not exenfed. Several members, after this decision was rendered,

held a meeting around the stove. The Qun told them that they must take their seats; a? caucus meeting could be held there. John Joaet, of Chicago, 111., was appointed as an agent to collect funds far the purpose of erecting a national colored school.

The Finance Committee reported as fellow*: ? That eaeh member ef the Oonnoil be taxed 91 to defray the txpenifts of this convention. Adopted. A eerie* of resolutions were offered, recommending Fred Douglass's paper to the hearty support of the oolor ? ed population. Ibis Julia Griffiths, the literary editor of Fred's pa per, was highly complimented by the Council, on the manner la which she had conducted that department of the paper. I TKTCU Tor AND TOO TICK LB MX. Mr. Rxmoxd, of Salem, oppoeed the paitsaie ef the re solutions. Be did aot; be Here Mr. Douglass's paper was the orgaa of the colored peoplt. He was oppoeed to tlila eternal system of a few men going on the principle of "I tickle you and you tickle me." There was no use in thus on every occasion puffing Mr. Douglass's paper: it was not inch a paper as could be supported by the whole colored people ef this oountry. > l>r. Smith said that the American Anti-Slavery Society had beta doing aotblng else but going on the Mutual Admiration Society principle, for the list twenty years. Their lecture tystem had fully shown that it wa* '*1 tickle you and you tickle me." Such a thing la his opinion did no barm, but eonsiderable goo J. Mr. thought Fred's paper was more anti slavery than the Liberator , aad went in for the resolu ? tioss. The ayes aad nays were tbea taken and the resolutions adopted. THE LA8T SCENB? VKRY FT NTT. While the vote was being tsken on the last question, Mr. Bekan refuted to record his vot?, on the ground that be didn't think a meipber was compelled to vote. Voicm? Yee, it does. (Great sensation.)

Only three ladies wern present yesterday? one of them was white, the other nuaay, aad tfce third jet. The attendance was tolerable. AMERICAN CONGREGATIONAL UNION. 11m American Congregational Union celebrated its an niversary In the Church of the Pilgrims, Brooklyn, yes terday. Rev. Dr. Bacon, of New Haven, Conn, presided. At 10 A. M the exercises commenced with prayer, pro nounced by Rer. G. Adams, of Brunswick, lie. The choir having performed an appropriate sacred piece, Rer. Dr. Sikakkb, President of Amherst College, Mass., was introduced. He commenced his address by saying that he accepted the invitation to address the Union on the present occasion with pleasure, inasmuch as it af forded him an opportunity of propounding his views on any theme connected with the interior constitution and spirit, or tbe outward working and onward movement, or historical developement of Evangelical Congregational Urn in this country ; for, though, he said, the views of one so humble may be of little importance to anybody, yet, by attempting to give his own opinions, he would be less likely to oompromtse those of his brethren, as an entire congregation could not be held responsible for opinions or views advanoed by a single member. The general subject proposed was one of deep interest. Evangelical Congregationalism is not only Soriptural in its origin, but the best possible system of church polity for a free, intelligent and truly Christian community. It ' allows freedom to individual development of mind and heart, while by its creeds and confessions, its prin ciples, prestige and spirit, it so strongly curbs erratic tendencies; it maintains equality among Christ's dis ciples, making so much of a man, the humblest, w bile it gives room for h gh respect to experience ana moral worth: it brings the soul so near the Mediator, without the intervention of human agencies, or any but tbe simplest forms; it furnishes cheeks to theological hatred and the ambition of those who can distinguish themselves only by hunting out heresies and aec using their brethren. Tbe history of the Congregational Church, he said, was essentially in tbe New World, where It is coeval with the first settlement, and the mother of our beet institutions. The interior constitu tion and spirit of the Congregational connection? in other words, Wlat la Congregationalism ? its nature? and what are its leading principles ? The question, he said, wss often asked witn a sneer, What is Congrega tionalism? as though a full, clear answer vaa out of the question. The difficulty of the question arises 'rom two sources: lit. lhat there was no accredited manual of church polity. The Cambridge platform, which gives the best exposition of Congregational principles, con tains several non-esientlals, which have fallen Into dis uie. As a scheme it has not been re affirmed for several generations, snd as a whole is strictly followed by no church. The second difficulty arises from the very na toro of the system, which Includes as a fundamental principle? liberty. It Is not a system of detail, but of common sey se. In answer to the question, therefor#, he said, the church Is a divine Institution, of whljh Christ is the invisible and only head; It has no human head without and above itself: It le subject to no pope, no bishop, patriarch, priest, king or State; It is simply subject to Christ, and in tbe visible organization the pre siding officer of the church. The Bible, especially the New Testament, contains the constitutions and rules by which Obrist is pleased to govern his church. It has no man made or church made look of authority. In this connection he said he deemed It necessary to correct an error respecting the nature of a church, which seems to be Imbibed by certain ultra democratic spirits, who place it on a level with voluntary associations of human origin, and suppose that a majority of a church may have the same control over all its a flairs as the majority of a temperance society has over its arrangements. A church, he held, Is an entirely different Institution from any other which exists, and was orgaslsed upon entirely different principles mm sny association or man's de vis is g that las been cr can be established; therefor*, no majority? rot even tbe whole body? can make any change in the foundation principles of ohurch polity, or in the ordinances, without bold presumption, and in a Christian community, without loss of standing as a church of Christ. A Congregational chureh he defined to bo a company of orc'eily believers, who. having en tered into covenant with God and each ether, aoknow lodging Christ as their head ana tbe New Testament as their ru-'e, and havicg choeen and consecrated certain officers according to Christ's direction, and having the Holy Spirit in the midst of them? without which such a holy Is no more a chureh than a human oorpse a man congregate statedly In one place for religious ordinances, snd the other great ends of a church. Such a ohurch includes both the sheep and the lambs? for true Con gregationalism, like all the leading eenomlnatlrns of Christendom, with one exception, considers the children of the church, when baptised, as members of the church, though such are not admitted to the higher mysteries of the church, withoutevidence of faith and repentaaoe and making public profession of the same, all which are necessary requisites not for infant baptism, but the Lord's supper. In tie administration of onurch affairs Congregationalism recognizes three and only three orders ? 1st, psstors, other sine designated ministers, teachers, bishops, overseers, Ac. ; 2d, deacons: 3d, the brotherhood, who, taken together, constitute the repre tentative body of believers. The church enjoys the pre rogative of designating Its own officers, to appoint Its own delegates, to provide for. the maintalaance of its Insti tutions, to deeldo on the sidnslsslon or rejection of pro posed members, and also, to perform other duties wnioU tbe speaksr enumerated He then prooeeded to speak of the various ecclesiastical offices, their incumbents, snd tbe dutietend functions assigned for their perform snco. It was the duty of the minister to preach the Gospel, administer the sacramental ordinances, conduct devotional services, preside over and regulate religious meetings, fro., building up the church of which ne is the overseer. It is his duty to designate the tiaees, places and modes of public Instruction and devotion, ac cording to tbe ussges of the;churoh, having mo authority to introduce aew snd extraordinary measures, oxoept with the consent of the brotherhood. .He next spoke of the fel lowship of the chnrches. He said, fellowship sonfodsra tion is among the fundamental principles of Congrega tionalism, distinguishing It from strut Independency. It was objected that there was no power to deal with sn erring church efficiently. He said that, on the contrary, they had fearful power, as when all appropriate means to eeenre the restoration of tt foiled, they had the power of withdrawal from it. Ha then adverted to that peculiar characteristic of the Coagregationalist Chureh, 'vis ? that it possessed the mat democratic principles of li berty; it acknowledged no standing judicatory or eccle siastical tribunal. All stood alike on the same platform of rights and privileges all enjoyed perfeet liberty, re strained only bv the laws of Christ. The epeaker, in conclusion. made a feeling appeal to the members of the denomination throughout this United Statee to remain true to themselvoe, true to their religion and its interests. Should tbey do so, posterity would be thankful, and would bless God that tfcs old Puritan fathers landed up on their shores. \ At this stage of the proceeding* it was announced by the chairman that a rooess of te>n minutes would bo taken. At tbe expiration of the allotted time Rev. J. M. 8tt btst^st, President of Illinois College, ascended the rostrum, and delivered an addrees of two hours dura tion, whieh required no small exemise of patience and endurance on the part of the audience, already well taxed, to outsit. For the thorough understanding of the vari ous gen<ra snd species, with their divisions nod subdivi sions, introduced in the course of his address, a moral I.tanrus or Cuvier treatise would be nseful. Ho said tlrnt the theme which would most naturally sngnst itself to a Western man to propoee for the consideration of the audience, was bandied and exhausted by a co la borer of his last year. Ho would net, therefore, dilate upon that subject again, or of the progress of the Oon ?:iegattonal st eauee, or on the labors and efforts in its avor in the West. Those labors, be affirmed, were cir cumscribed by no limits, bounded by no parallels, but were as ents naive as the field which required cultivation. The topic to srhioh be would Invito the attention and consideration of bis hearers, was tbe anti-sootarian ten ?of ohurch polity. Ha paid a passing tribute to tbe of unity that psoraOsd in Now England, com pared with contentious and discordant elements to bo snconntsnd in tbe. Western Statee, where the most strik ing fsaturs that wonldjMsent Itself to a young misis ter edueat d in a Now England Institute, Is the antago nism and rabid dissensisns of rival sects, which would I prey on him, nnd affect him more than all the vfeissi fcdss of frontier life OT tbe nosetony ft the praift. ' loch weetfecfentaaopeooentodte hie ye*hral heart by U*p?Aaml laadeeape mt tho W?rt. If It were m decreed by an all wim Providence. that Mm Introduction of Congregationalism in tbe West would b? calcu lated to add another to the ananou sects U*t swarm there already, Md thai magnify the evil, ho, for one, confessed that ho had no heart is ita importation, a work which ho would look upon aa one of supererogation ; aad the man who would eagage in inch an enterprise, he likened unto one who ?ho did deem it necessary to tow granite in New Hampshire or moequitos on the banks of the Miaaiaelppi For the proper and full nndaratandlng of tho question, ho deemed it necesse tj to define. In oontra- distinction to sectarian ism and scblnn, what tho unity of the ohurch consisted in. Unity be held to be an acknowledgment of one law, Jesus Christ, one baptism, one faith? the faith of Christ, and oae head, who was also Christ He then proceeded to enumerate tno various marki and characters by which those in search of nnlty to desirable, may be guided la the prosecution of their inquiries after truth. He assail ed tie doctrine of the Catholic shurch on this point, and its arrogance in assuming that she alone possessed that mark of Hie Church of Christ, under one visible head. The usual amount of stereotyped epithets were applied, and abase, proof, and argument, wen strangely commin gled. Be did not claim for tfce Congregational church any extraordinary power to dlspenee sacramental and other graces. It possessed no monopoly of ecclesiattical power or preferment; but it enjoyed tho full measure of iruth, freedom and unity. The speaker next proceeded to consider the subject upon which all sectarianism is baaed, aad made thereof a triplex division, vis., doc liine, oeremcny, and government. As regards desirine, 1 e proceeded at much length to prove that every other except the evangelical se:t disagree on points of doc trine, sod how conflicting opinions in respect to matters of doubt lead to contentions and schism. The evangelical doctrint held the same plaoe in the re ligious e realization of society that the genu* homo did in natural hlstary? there was but one species. The evangelical church preserved the Integrity of its unity in fundamentals, no matter bow widely churches and membeiH may have differed regarding non-essentials. He next spoke of the various leading denominations, commencing with the Roman Catholic Church, upon whose rapid decline and speedy dissolution he congratu lated his rearers. Skilful physicians, he said, had felt her poise, looked at her toogue and examined her symp toms, and were unanimous in declaring that she had not long to live. The whims of passioo, he continued, have a vast sweep, and acquire a great momentum. Often the most trivial causes among members of the rame sect? agreeing in laws, sentiment and administra tion ? divide it Into distinct and separate congregations, thus increasing the evil moat of all to be ceprecatsd. Respecting ceremony, he said that he was sorry to ho obliged to admit that a serious schism prevails among the Congregationalist churches on the aubjeots of baptism aad the Lord's Supper. Thete much vexed questions he would not discuss, but referred his audi ence to the views taken by the great, the good and learned Robert Hall on theae subjects, who had ably, fully, and, as the sneaker considered, satisfactorily treated of them. The third point? government? he went Into at considerable length, susta'ning the polity of his charch in its executive end disciplinary character He contended that it waa not the policy or practice of tho evangelical church to exolnde from membership those who, believing in essentials, might disagree on dcctrinal points of lester importance. On tho contrary, it haa made it an invariable rule to madify ite discipline to f uit those who wish to join it. The evangelical doc trine, as professed by Congregationalists, was not sec tarian, but essentially Catholic. He said that an opin ion prevailed daring the past year among many churches, that a national synod or assembly was necessary to the permanent benefit of the Congregationalist church; aad that such a feeling would he likely to produce two dis tinct sects of Congregationalists. If any snob spirit ex isted in particular churches, he hoped they would be cut off or dissolved; such a spirit wis not koownto, or re cog nized by the Pilgrims. Congregationalism, he con cluded, knew no schism In the past, and feared no schism in the future. At the conclusion of this address, the exercises ended with singiag, aad benediction pronounced by Rev. Dr. Steans; after which the audience separated. THE AMERICAN TRACT SOCIETY.
