THE NATIONAL CONGREGATIONAL 
OOUNOIL. 
The nntne of this proposed assem- 
bly was changed, so far as the advice 
of the Massachusetts State Associa- 
tion can change it, to the " The Na< 
tional Conference of the Congrega 
tional Churches." As Duybfotai 'Ww 
leyan Methodists and- many other 
sects are in truth Congregational, 
the above title will contain a sectar- 
ian untruth. It will not be the Con 
I'erence of the Congregational Church- 
es of this country, but only of a small 
part of them. Nine delegati 
National Council were appointed with 
Alonzo H. Quint, Chaplain of the 
Massachusetts Grand Lodge, at their 
head ! Thus our Chicago brethren 
who have assured me that Chapls 
Quint is willing to subside, are m 
taken : As also those will be who 
believe that Dr. Healy, (hi 
been made doctor by Olivet College) 
has recently renounced Freemasonry, 
will find themselves mistaken also. 
Those brethren, years ago, were strip- 
ped, blindfolded, and sworn to have 
their throats cut if they disobeyed th> 
"signs," "grips" "tokens" and rule 
of men, miscalled Freemasons ! No 
deterred by this disgusting blasphemy 
and profanation of their persons, they 
waded on through oath after oath till 
they have sworn to stand by Mai 
" right or wrong," " murder and t 
son not excepted." Quint boasted. 
and the Boston " Congregationalist " 
published his letter, that a 
ist, traitor and liquor-selling landlord 
in Chnrlestown, Va., was made friend; 
with him by Freemasonry, though he 
was then and continued to be seel 
the overthrow ot our country and 



and has drunk

Now brethren a

trol of the propos-

, has God forsaken

ness ? Do you suppose that the 
ters of Illinois, to say nothing of 
Christians, are going to foot the bills 
of a "National Congregational Coun- 
cil," with a man at its head who be 
longs to a voluntary society or lodge, 
which claims and, exercises the right 
to murder its members for disobeying 
its rules ?

which we can only infer that 
likely to preser 
sufficient vigor to add somewhat 
the dignity and wealth of the ancient 
order, he would have them notify him 
;onably of their declining condi- 
, that he may despatch them before 
they have spent all, and find as large 
on as possible of the funds they 
cquired by the swindling pre- 
of the craft, to place " in the 
proper hands " and report or not as he 
shall think " the interests of the craft 
may require." 

Thus it may be seen that the Ma- 
nic life of members, and of lodges 
held at the will of the Worshipful 
Grand Master. His title to 
orty of the subordinate lodgi 
putable. His power to tax i

AN AUGUST SPECTAOLE-THE COI'- 

Tourists who visit Scotland, can 
still see the tattered old blue flag with 
its motto peering from its torn folds : 
"Christ's Crown and Covenant." 
They can also see the original Nation- 
al Covenant which was spread out on 
a tomb-table in the Gray-Friars 
ehurch-yard, where the representa- 
tivs of that religious nation knelt and 
signed their names ; many adding 
"till death," and some writing their 
names with their own blood. The 
question on which those weeping men 
knelt, with broadswords by their sides, 
and then rose to redeem their pledges 
by their right arms, was the one only 
ami perpetual question f<>i- the an 
tions: Shall Christ be king? Is 
there a God, and is Jesus Christ the 
Son of God? Can men become chil- 
dren of God in Christ ? Has God giv- 
us a religion by Christ, or may men 
iiianuhifturc religions for us? 

On the 30th day of May last, the 
"Reformed" or Covenanting Church, 
which means the church reformed 
. the inventions called popery, 
represented in its Synod at Pitts- 
burgh, and adopted, and with lifted 
hands swore, as their fathers did, ti; 
themselves in covenant to God 
So while the Jews were yet God's 
chosen people, they were wont to sign 
eal and stand to, a written eovenan! 
o obey God. 
The Covenant at Pittsburgh (which 
ppeared in our last issue) was signed 
by one hundred and forty-four pi 

Though more coincided, but 
the twelve twelves were present when 
the oath was taken. When shall
