First, the power of tendering dissents is not confined to male headls of families, but it is extended to all'the adult male parishioners or niembers of the congre gation, who arein full communion. Second, if a : church is left vacant more than six months, in consequence of the rejection of a presentee, the right of presentation falls not, to the Presbytery, but to the -Crown. We agree with.a contemporary that this is pro posed as a sop to the Government. Third, the church members are invited to sign the call; but, as all who do not dissent are to be held as concurring, this is no real inno vation. Fourth, the Church reserves to itself the power of "fixing and iegulating" who are the...
