This time i shall mention a few men whom I saw at the assembly that are somewhat prominent outside of church ircles. Many were there, of course, whom we, who read the church papers, ;re glad to see, that are not known to the general .public. EX-GOVERNOR BEAVEtt, of Pennsylvania, graduated at Jefferson college in 1850,(one year before Kev. W. M. Richie, now of northern Kossuth county, la. After practicing law at Bellefont he entered the army, soon rose to the rank of gene^Y but unfortunately came out of ttifVconflict with the loss of one limb, &$. that "lie Cannot even stand on the platform without the aid of crutches, and yet Mr. Beaver is One of the finest platform speakers in the state. He was elected governor about six years ago. At this assembly the first speech was made by him, in which he nominated Dr. Booth, of New York, for the rnodera- torship. THOMAS MCnUQALL. , Next to Col. McCook, of New York, on the trail of Dr. Briggs, at the Washington assembly of 1893, was Elder Me Dugall of Cincinnatti. At that time he played a conspicuous part. We wanted to see him. He was at this assembly, not as a commissioner, but as a member of the committee appointed on seminary control and.spoke in favor of the report. McDugall is rather of a spare physique, with an aquiline nose, an eagle eye, and just, enough Scotch brogue to please an American audir ence. He is certainly one of the acutest thinkers and one of the clearest speakers we ever saw. It is worth going a great distance to near, him.

Cleveland, the President's Brother. to the supreme court : ahd%ill be boomed before his frietids, says' the Pittsburg Times, as a- candidate for the governor of PBESIDENT PATTON. . The old and new schools;**,/came together in 1870 in this church of Pitts burg. This was the twenty-fifth an niversary. .Among.the speakers was Dr. Patton.' In clearness of though and gracefulness as a speaker he has not a peer in the church. He is a speaker of which an audience is al ways proud. No wonder the Princeton students made great demonstra tions whenhe was chosen president Dr. McCosh had, on account of advanc ing age, resigned the presidency. The students, and indeed all Princeton were anxious when the day came for electing a successor. But the trustees came together, and without much de .lay, honored James McCosji with an annuity of $2500, and unanimously el ected Francis L, Patton, The event was celebrated, by the students, with horns, drums, torches, bonfires and illuminations; and at a concert soon after, the names of the two presidents were coupled by a poetic genius,; and and sent down to posterity in this way: In a great and ancient college Once a riddle was proposed, Its solution was prpphetic, And the future it disclosed, But the trustees solved it rightly And pleased us all as well, For they honored dear old "Jjmmy" And elected 'Francis Jj.' REV, W. N, CLEVELAND, a qoinraJasjoner from St, Laurence presbytery New York, is a brother of the President, J went to shake bands with hiw for the sake of theqhief mag. istrate.

The two Mrs. Adams vere eougregatioiialists, but as the Congregationalists had no churches in Washington at the time, they worship- id with the Presbyterians. John Quinsy Adams, had indeed a close and )ectiliaf • exerieuce with one of the 'resbyterian churches of the Capital. During the administration of Monroe, while Adams was secretary of state, there was erected a comparitively of small brick building, known as the second Presbyterian church (on the ground now covered by the great hurch of the covenant), where the assembly met in 1893. Work progressed is far as the roof, when the funds gave out; and operations came to a standstill. .But at this juncture Mr. Adams kindly loaned the infant organization 52,000, a great sum for those times, statipg that they could take their time in paying him. Mr. Adams was gradually paid, and as he held a double pew ill the church, his pew rent was regularly deducted. It was twenty- wo years after the building was completed, before the last dollar was paid. Mr. Adams gave a receipt during the war, this receipt was'added to a collection of autographs, and sold at a fair for &re benefit of the Hospital since for seen that From this it may be Presbyterian ism has been often connected with national affairs, and this is true of recent years. After the con- venfekm of 1888; one of which nominated Hrrison, a Presbyterian elder; and theofher Cleveland, son and brother of Pr,estiyterian ministers; a Presbyterian paper dealt a blow of this kind: "Calvinism may be dying out but it is good for; four years more in the White Houses whichever side gets in.
