    Excerpt from Review of Dr. R. J. Breckinridge's Letters, on the Rights of Ruling Elders: From the Princeton Review, April, 1844

    It remains to be seen whether the valour exhibited in such a cause will meet with its reward or not.

    In the pamphlet, the title of which we have placed at the head of this article, we have the substance of two argu ments upon the ordination and quorum question, delivered before the Synod of Philadelphia by Dr. R. J. Breckinridge, a conspicuous defender of what he deems the rights and privileges of Ruling Elders. It Will be remembered that the General Assembly of 1842 decided by a unanimous vote that it was not within the intent of our constitutional rule tipon that subject, that ruling elders should join in the im position of hands in the rite of ordination. This vote was subsequently re-considered, and the subject was referred to the next Assembly. The last Assembly after a fitll argu ment of the case decided by a vote of 138 to 9 that the constitution of our church does not authorize ruling elders to impose hands in the ordination of ministers. This was the deliberate judgment of the church expressed through its highest court, upon a question not hastily brought before it, nor hastily decided. If the church is capable of forming its mind upon the meaning of its own elementary principles and methods of proceeding, we have that mind distinctly expressed in this decision. If the unanimous decision of one Assembly, and the nearly unanimous decision of another, after a year's re¿ection, ought not to be final, so as to be an end of controversy, we can discern no means by which such a question can ever be definitively settled and for aught that we can see, our church must be reduced to the humiliating attitude of ever learning what her own simplest rudiments are, and never coming to the knowledge of the truth.
