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

&ET7CR XX.
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

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. It held
enoe is drawn. I will treat it, not as an out to all nations of the world certain
inference, but as an independent propo-! benefits (or what were believeil by tho
silion. So far from being true, even ! lirilish (iovernment to be so,) on cer-
?is siic.h, 1 venture to aliirn* that the di-j tain conditions.
