There Was a goodj iprotestant minister in the city, and he asked VarrjDorp one day if he wonld not like to quit his other,; oceu,pations, and sell Bibles from house to house among jthe people. The poor man said. <«Noj it will sever do, for r the people will rise lip against me and drive me away." - ,, Me had reason to fear this, for there were a great many Roman Catholics in the place, and they always opposed the circulation of the Bible. * However he was induced to try, and he met with much more favor than he__ anticipated.

The report of the Committee on the Church Erection Fund was read by the secretary, Rev. Br. M'Lane. The. Fund now amounts to over $109,000, which is all safel y invested, and in such securities that it can be made available when needed. Though every application for aid has been promptly met, yet the fund is increasing. Up to May, 1859, there had been 111 churches added, and $40,418 either loaned or donated to them.

IV. POSITION OF TBE COMMITTEE _JttARKS of Progress.—In the review of the year the Committee find much reason for congratulation. With the very inadequate resources at their handj to keep on their way "without actual disaster , is a .great success.. But they report positive and very marked progress. 1. The new publications of the year add moral as well .as material strength to the undertaking. The issues of the Committee have met the approbation of our pastors and intelligent church members. It.has been, and it will be, the aim of your Committee , so to present the truth as to give no just cause for offence to any of the followers of Christ. In those works in which the distinctive views of our own churches are set forth, it is the desire of the Committee that it may be done with Christian courtesy an_$ eandor. From bitterness, from sectarian pugnacity, and all uncharitableness they pray to be delivered. To build up the walls of our own Ztion, not to pull down those ot others ...

GENERAL ASSEMBLY CORHESPONDBNOB. Pittsburg, May 24,1860. "What is "The General Assembly?" and t( What does it do?" are questions which, I do not doubt, many of your readers would find it hard definitely to answer. Were they here they would see an assemblage of about two hundred gentlemen, who (if all were present,) would be one-half ministers and one-half elders. These are representatives of the Presbyteries, and are elected annually for this purpose, the Presbytery being the body consisting of the churches and ministers embraced in a given locality. Thus the Assembly is a representative council, in some _respects analogous to our National and State legislatures. To it the records of Synods, which are composed of several Presbyteries, are sent up yearly for examination and approval, or correction. To it appeals may be made from the lower judicatories. In it all the churches are united by a common bond, and through it they appoint and sustain different measures for the spread o...
