I The measure adopted to secure this end was the removal of Dr. Woodrow rora tlie professor's chair. The'ground that Dr. Woodrow now akes is that this action , implied that ie was guilty of hereny. This, how ever, it is said, does not necessarily ollow. for the book of church order draws a distinction between heresy and error, and by many leading cler- gymen it is maintained that Dr. Wood row's offense does not amount to heresy,5 but is simply error in his interpretation of the Scriptures upon me Buuject oi ine creation ueueving his teaching to be error, however, boy were justified in insisting that it should not be continued in the Sem inary.

It is a filthy habit at best, but if mothers will un derstand that the pet cat' or poodle communicates its diseases of throat and mouth to the child who carries the beast in her arms, we woujd have less of that class so fatal to children. A writer in the British Medical Jour nal says "it is a source of danger that should be widely known and prevented." Evolution. Dr. James Woodrow Wants to know Whether he is a Heretic or Not, and 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.
