The Macedon News Gatherer has pronounced Briggs guilty of heresy anyway, convicted or acquitted.— Lyons Republican, Tuesday, Jan. 10 The proposition of the Rev. Drs CLARK of Harlem, to withdraw from the Presbyterian ministry because he is out of sympathy with the declared views of the last General Assembly concerning the Scriptures, betokens the sensitiveness of his honor and the firmness of his consistency. But neither honor nor consistency com pels him to such a step unless it is equally obligatory on DR. BRKICS and the majority of tho New York Presbytery, in case the General, Assembly of next May adheres to the position as to the Bible taken so emphatically by that body at its last two meetings. At present it does not seem possi ble that the committee will be able to induce the General Assembly to revolutionize so completely the faith of the Presbyterian church, and of all orthodox Protestantism. Proba bly it is because Dr CLARK foresees that result that ho feels it his duty as a man of honor to step down and out at once If he cannot subscribe to the Westminister Confession, he is unwilling to pretend to preach ils doctrines. Dr. BKICOS , however, has no such scruples. He is ready to subscribe to it every day, with mental reservations and with an interpretation directly contrary to the belief of Presbyterians for hun dreds of years. * * * The Pres byterian church must either put them in control or turn them out, if it is to continue to receive the public espect.—New York Sun, Wednes day, Jan. 11.
