The Old School Presbyterian Church

Covington Journal June 8, 1861

The "irrepressible conflict" hast got into the Old School Presbyterian Church and has, we fear, forever destroyed its unity. The General Assembly, after an earnest and protracted discussion, adopted resolutions fully sustaining the Washington administration. The vote was ayes 154, nays 66. The Kentucky Commissioners voted in the negative. It must be regarded as a great public misfortune that this good old church, which has so long and so nobly resisted the inroads of fanaticism, has been forced from its conservative position. Well may Christians weep when they see a great church organization sacrificing its unity for the purpose of maintaining a party platform
