313 - DTD May 28; ed:2/1 - The Free presbytery of Mahoning met in the Rev. Edwin H. Nevin's church, Wood st. Presbyterian, yesterday. There was a large attendance of members. The Rev. David Craig of New Athens and the Rev. Joseph Gordon of Mercer, Pa., were elected moderaters.

Some ministers from other churches were present, expecting to con• nect themselves with this body.

This presbytery in connection with Ripley and Felicity Presbytery form from the "Free Synod of Cincinnati" which will meet this morning. "This Synod embraces many strong-minded champions of freedom, and many important questions will come before it for deliberation and discussion. From the fact of its standing aloof from all connection with slaveholding ecclesiastical bodies, this synod certainly occupies an enviable position. We anticipate its rapid growth and prosperity."

316 - DTD May 29; ed:2/2 - "What sort of a Synod, is that, a 'Free Presbyterian Synod, we would like to know?' said an anxious inquierer who, we thought, seemed to scent 'divisions in the church. ' But we could answer him only in part. Whether or not it differs, theologically, from Presbyterian Synods in communion with either the New or the Old School assembly, we were unable to say; but presumed it to be as right on all 'the five points' as any other body of prefessing Christians."

CHURCHES & SECTS - Presbyterian (Cont'd) 317 DTD May 29; ed:2/2,3 - At the "free" church meeting in the Tabernacle last night, there was a very able discussion between President Mahan and Professor Gordon on the question of church fellowship.

"All, hereabouts, and, we had almost said, 'the rest of mankind,' know the President. But we had never heard Professor G. before; and therefore feel moved to say, that he is, decidedly, one of the handsomest debaters we have ever listened to in all the West."

(2)

318 · DTD May 31:3/1 At the proceedings of the "free synod" on the resolution in respect to fellowshiping with pro-slavery churches, the Rev. Edwin H. Nevin remarked: "It is wise to consider seriously the points involved in this resolution. It is certainly contrary to the Word of God to commune with these churches because, to speak in the mildest terms, they are walking disorderly, not in accordance with the scriptural order, and the command of the New Testament is 'to withdraw from every brother that walketh disorderly.

The Rev. A. B. Bradford, the Reverend Mr. Rankin, and others spoke in favor of Mr. Nevin's resolution, while President Mahan and the Rev. Joseph Gordon followed with eloquent and appropriate remarks against it.

The subject embraced in the resolution was referred to a committee comprised of Mr. Nevin the Rev. E. Goodman, and Elder Clark of Mercer. The committee reported the preamble and resolution with slight changes, and it was unanimously adopted.

320 - DTD June 18:3/1 - In a letter to the editor, "Euclid" says: "This is a Presbyterian community." So says the Reverend Dr. Aiken. Well, let us see how the matter stands. It appears on summing up a table of ecclesiastical statistics in the western reserve register for 1852 that there are on the reserve 194 Congregational and Presbyterian churches, containing 14,825 communicants. Of this number, 40 are Presbyterian churches, and 154 are Congregational. Of the latter, 62 are associated with the presbyteries, and ninety-two are independent or belong to Congregational associations. Of the communicants, 3, 705 are Presbyterians, and 11,125 are Congregationalists. A most singular Presbyterian community to be sure.

(2) 321 - DTD July 1; adv: 3/5 - The ladies of Euclid would like to inform their friends and the community, that they intend to provide a rural festival, to which all are cordially invited, on July 5 in the Presbyterian church.

CHURCHES & SECTS Presbyterian (Cont'd) 322 - DTD July 12:2/2 - In a letter to the editor, "II." says: I am credibly informed that a festival was held in the Reverend Bigelow's church in Euclid on July 5 and 6 for the benefit of said church. Among other evangelical appliances a sale of black babies at auction came off; that is a number of doll babies with faces painted in genuine sable were cried off at sale to the infinate amusement of spectators.

The sale of babies is a terrible reality of daily occurrence in half the states of this union. As an illustration of the practical tendency of such conduct, I learn that on July 5 as a carriage containing a company of Cleveland bloods was returning from the Euclid festival one of them swung his wax doll from a door and proclaimed to passers by that he had bought a black baby at a church.

323 - DTD July 15; ed:2/1 - "A writer sends us a communication from
Collamer, 'about the sale of black babies in church.' It is enough,
