Demands a Trial by the Presbytery.
The delegates from this city to the
meeting of the Augusta Presbytery at
Union Point returned yesterday. A
full attendance of thj 'churches- was
had. Rev. Donald McQueen, of Mill
edgeville, was moderator, and Rev. J.
B. Morton, of Sparta, clerk of the
Presbytery. The usual statistical re
ports from the different churches were
read, and gratify accounts of progress
aud growth came from nearly every
one. The principal matter of business
before the'meeting was the considera
tion of a communication from Dr.
James Woodrow, late professor inthe
Columbia' Seminary i It was to the
effect that rumors in the public jour
nals and elsewhere were abroad charg
ing him with heresy.: That as this is
a grave offense in the ,Presbylerian
church, he asked his brethren of the
Presbytery to inquire into the matter
and if they found the rumors were
well founded toprepafechargesagaiust
him and try him tortlie offense.
The Presbytery having no discre
tion inthe matter but to take action
upon the communication as requested,
appointed a committee consisting of
Rev. H. M. Newtonj bf Union Point,
Rev. Wm. Adams, Rev. G. T. Goet
chius and Mr. James W. Wallace, of
Augusta, and Col. J. A. Billups, of
Madison, to examine into the rumors
complained of, and if they found that
they justified legal; proceedings, to re
port the same to. the j Presbytery.
This was the only action that could
be taken lyesterday and the status of
the case now seems tp be about this:
