Ai’.M'uiNir M -V1!_ IS.::, - Philadelphia, May 14.—Episcopal Con vention.— The Annual Coiivcntiun of the I*rolestant Episcopal Church, in the Dio- cess ol i’ennsylvania, assembled, on Tues day last, at Harrisburg, and was unusu ally lull, consisting of about one hundred and eijjhty iMciubcrs. A question of ve ry great interest to the Members of that Church, and which has for some lime produced not a little excitement, was, as the writer thinks, providentially settled in the election of an estimable man, a pi ous, truly evangelical Christian, and an able divine, to the office of Assistant Bishop ot the Diocese—the Rev. ilCiNUY U. Ondeknotc. Those clergymen and laj^ien, latterly designated as the friends oj the present Bishop, voted unanimously tor this gentleman. The whole number of votes given in, were .TI, of which IVIr. Onderdonk had 25 :—of the remainder were given as follows : for the Rev. J. II Hopkins, 18—for the Rev. Dr. Mihior, 2—(or Rev. Dr. IVilson, 2—for the Rev. If. Meade, 1—one vote was without a a name, and one clergyman declined vo-: ting. No hope, we believe, was enter tained, of the election of either of the last named clergymen, nor were their names used, as far as we were able to learn, with any definite purpose: unless, perhaps, that of dividing the friends of iMr. On derdonk. On the nomination and ap pointment of the Rev. Mr. Onderdonk, by the order of the Clergy, being declared by the Bishop, the question, whether the lay order would approve of the nomina tion and appointmet, was put and decid ed in the affirmative,—72 Yeas to 58 Nays. No doubt, we believe, is entertain ed, that the Rev. Gentleman will accept the high office thus providentially devol ved upon him, a»jd it is fervently trusted, that the Church, in ins Diocese, may be rcbiorecl to its former pcaceand harmony. A case of some novelty, and which has cxcited much interest, is now undef dis- cussiion in Baltimore County Court. It is a rule heretofore laid, at the instance ol some of the Pewholders, upon the trustees ot the Associate reformed Con gregation, of which the Rev. Mr. Dun- tan is minister, requiring them to shew cause why a Mandamus should not issue to them commatiding and enjoiningand pro hibiting them from further pei-uutiing the Rev. Mr. Duncan to occupy the church, or the puljiit thereof, S;c. Mr. Wirt, U. S. Atloiiiey (.krara!, concluded the argmnetilin the Citst of the Associate Relcriiu'd cojigregaliuii in Tamman)-street, on Saturday afternoun, says the Baliiinore I’airiot, in one of the most eloquent ’jieces of oi utory ever de- li\ered at the bar of our Court. Mr. VVift was Oj)posed to the. prayer of the petitioners, and after dwelling for some time on the case, concluded with the fol lowing quotation from Macbeth’s solilo quy, which absolutely electrified the whole audience :— •••••» Besides, this Duncan Hath borne his facultii s so meek, hath been So dear in his great otHce, that liis virtues Will plead like angels, truiiipet-tongued against The deep damnation of his taking olT. [^It will be recollected by some/jf our leaders that the olFehce of which Mr. Duncan is guilty, is, being called upon to deliver a discourse before the Directors and Studeutsof the'I’heological Seminary at Princeton, he preached against Creeds and Confessions of Faith, j The Profj|;.ssors of Rutgers’ Medical College, N. Y. having staled that they knew nothing of Dr. Chambers, or his medicine .for the cure of drunkenness, the doctor, in reply, says, he has' been j on intimate terms with some of them for two years. As to their being ignorant of his “nostrum” fur curing intemper ance, Dr. Chambers believes that to be true, and adds, “some of tlicm would do ! well to become acquainted wi Ji iisenVcis j by the use (>f i» and further, “that at majority cjf complaints from wliich the! Pioi’essors oltatn tuitonly a living, but a fortune, originated Irom intemperance.” Bloody —A man was fountl night) belore laii on liic hill back of this town, j lying in a gutter senseless, and enveloped in one entire gott* of hlooil. lie waf> carelully ieino\ed, by some j>;nod Sama- l itans, to a t.ivern, where meilieal aid was procured.

To the Right Honorable Geopkb Caknikb, First Lord of the Treasury, &c. Sir : In the letter which 1 had the honour to address to you the other day, I pointed out four jjrave errors in your letter to Mr. Gallatin, of Jan. 27. I'he first of these errors consisted in snying, that Mr. Gallatin complained that the act of Parliament of 1825 was not communicated to the American Gov ernment. Mr. Gallatin did not com plain of that circumstance, hut merely stated it as strengthening an inference. Your second errorconsisted in sayinj^, that the British and American Govern ments do not communicate to eacli other the acts of their Legislatures. The ads of the American Legislature are regularly communicatec! to the British Minister at VV’ashington. Your third error, and that a very se rious one in the present circumstances, consisted in saying that the act of Con gress of 1823 was not officially com municated to the British Minister at Washington. I proved to you, by the authority of the American Secretary of State, that it was commtmicated to your kinsman, Mr. Stratford Canning, then British Minister at Washington, for the express purpose of giving him an oppor tunity of making his remarks upon it, which he did. Your fourth error consisted in inti mating that “ no e^cplanation was offer ed of the bearing of this act,” to the British Minister, and that after its pas sage “he learnt to his astonishment, that, under the word “elsewhere,” were intended to be signified both Great Britain and the British Colonies. I proved to you that, during the passage of the act, Mr. Stratford Canning’s at tention was called to the word clst- tvhcre ; and that the sense in which the word was taken by Congress, was per fectly understood by him at the time. My inference from all this is, that you iiave not given yourself the trouble to read the documents in this somewhat perplex* *! controversy. You have plac ed au undue reliance on that powerful ge:iius vv'iich carries you triumphantly tliroiigh the conflicts of the House of Coinmon.s, but which cannot supply the place of patient research in the Cabinet. Such oversights are not w’ithout pre cedent in your office. I have been in formed, on good authority, that Sir Stratford Raflles returned to England, from the governtment of Java, full of astonishment that no attention had been paid to some important suggestions con tained in his despatches. On a visit to the foreign office, he discovers the cause of this inattention. He saw his official despatches, for the two or three past cx parte manner, such an act has not been communicated to the other power, to whom a renewal of the negotiation had been promised. I challenge the production of such another case, unless, indeed, where an affrontful'course (which you disclaim) was intended to be pursued. • Your other deduction from premises, which I have sliow'n not to exist, is this; “ that no inference could be draw’n from such an omission on the one side any more than on the other, of (what the undersigned disclaims for his govern ment) an inten'tional want of courtesy and respect.” You are here pursued by the still re curring delusion, that Mr. Gallatin mentioned your omission to communi cate the act of Parliament of July, 1825, as matter of complaint, as “want of courtesy and respect.” The American Government, sir, is always gratified when treated with cour tesy; but it does not complain when courtesies are withheld. It does not deem itself the losing party on any such occasion. But Mr. Gallatin did not com plain, h« argued; and this the American Government understands far better than complaining. I will restate his argument to you, in a fonn which yoti can hardly mistake: The two Governments had a long negotiation about the Colonial trade. They could not come to an understand ing. They passed laws on each sitle; the last one passed by the American Government was not only communica ted to the British minister, in the usual form in which all our public documenta are communicated to the foreign minis ters, but was specially communicated for' his comments. The next year the negotiation waff resumed.—Every point but one w'as settled. On that one point the negotia tion was suspended, with an understand ing that it should be resumed. Various accidental, unforeseen, and unavoidable circuinstunccs occurred to delay this re sumption. The next year three or four actswcro .passed by the British Government, containing a vast many sections, repeal • ing acts still more complicated.—Their practical operation it was impossible be forehand to divine; they were construe- ed diflerently in the British Courts ; they were misapplied in the British Colonies; it w’as beyond the power oi' Mr. Vaughan, the British Minister at Washington, to explain them, when requested so to do by the Secretary ol’ State. Now, sir, under all these circumstan ces, the fact that these laws were not communicated to this Government is mentioned hy Mr.Gallatin as among years, lying in a quiet corner, with the rcuaons which led to the belief that seals unbroken. 'I'he Minister had not t^iey were not intended to operate a- had time to open them ! No candid man, who believes in your integrity, can have accompanied me thus far W'ithout coming to the conclu sion that you were really unacqtiainted with the hi.story of this negotiation. Having asserted the fact, that the A- gainst us, on the subject matter of a ne gotiation, which you had promised tp resume. Is the argument clear ? Is it Icziti- o o mate ? - But you follow up still furtiier this’ omission to comnuinicate the act of mcrican law of lS2.'j was not eommuni- 1825 ; a topic which it is pretty evident, catcd by the American Government, you draw from it two inferences. As I have shown your alleged fact to he imaginary, your inferences, of course, fall to tlic ground. But let us never theless exaniine tlioin. by this time, you had better not have touched. You give the following in genious reasons why the act ought not to have been communicated. You must needs prove a great deal too tntich. You not only show that there was no ground 'I’ho first infiToncc is, “ tliat the or-. ^ (" hich w'as never inaue) (linary and natural eotirsc between j would lead us almost tu think Shites is not to make di[)l(>fiiatic com-1 d^-bateil with yourselt niuiiicalions of thf^ acts of their respec-; y^" ought not to communicate live L«jgislaturcs. ” j ^ct of 1825 to the American Gov- 1 am willing, in rcTeronce to this po-1 and decided in the negative, sition, to waiv(! all the advantage in ar-j ^®y— jiunieiil. which I have gained by de.'trny-1 “ But the act of 1825 did not relate iiig the premises from which your infer- j specially to the United Slates.
