We have just had a letter from bro. Phelps at New York, Amos A.

I have just read a letter from our friend Lewis Tappan, addressed to bro. Phelps, in reference to the clerical disaffection. He says H. C.

On the 23d of that month, he refused to read a notice of an anti-slavery lecture, by A. A. Phelps, from the pulpit he was temporarily occupying in Cambridgeport, Mass., on the ground that the regular pastor had refused to do the same (Lib. 7.123). This sin was now doubtless forgiven him by Phelps. But I am told he has not so completely loseir benefactors; of reproaching the memories of the Revolutionary patriots.

Vice-President of the American Society, took the chair. His first duty was to appoint a business committee, and this he composed as follows, with an obviously liberal representation of Third Party and New Organization: W. L.

Chaplin, Lewis Tappan (New York); Charles C. Burleigh, Charles W. Gardiner (Pennsylvania); and Charles W. Denison (New Jersey). On Miss Kelley's confirmation by the meeting the fate of the Society depended. The viva-voce vote being questioned, a count by the tellers showed a total of 1008, Lib. 10.86. with about a hundred majority in her favor. The deathknell of sectarianism had sounded.
