The attention of Synod having been called to the state of the Student's Fund, Resolved, that a committee be appointed to investigate the history and present state of said fund, and report as soon as practicable. Messrs. Murray and Morris the committee.

It was moved and seconded, that the Synod reconsider the vote. of last evening, on the resolution to testify against the Union, &c. After some conversation on the motion, the question was put, reconsider said vote or not, and it carried, not reconsider. Mr. Irvine then declared his adherence to Mr. Stark’s protest against the decision of last evening.

The following motion was made and seconded: that while we see no reason to believe that the protesting brethren in Scotland have deserted any of their former principles, yet at the same time we see no reason to set aside our former decision requiring an approbation of our professed principles from ministers and people applying for communion with us.

This motion having been the subject of long reasoning, the question was put, agree to the motion or not; and it carried, agree. Dr. Ramsay and Mr. W. Wilson declared their adherence to a protest formerly given in against the act of Synod on this subject, 1822. Messrs. Murray, Hanna, Adams, Carson, Whyte, Campbell and Isaac protested, for reasons to be given in.
