THE YVESLEYAN CONFERENCE. The following resolutions appear in the "Minutes of Conference" for the present year:â "LAW OF MAKlllAGE. "Q. 28. What is the judgment of the Conference as to the duty of members of our societies in re- ference to the present law of marriage 1 A. 1. That, in unison with the general ktrerm of authorities, in both the. Jewish aiitt iiristi;incliurclies, the < celesinstica la w of this country, ever since the epoch of the Reformation, has affirmed the degrees of cmis liiK'uiuity and affinity, within tho limits of which the Divino Lawgiver has prohibited marriage, to be such as are expressed or implied in tho 1 Stli chapter of Leviticus; and that, tnercfore, such marriages alone 'are Godly and agreeable to the laws' which are contracted between persons not included in those prohibitions. "2. That, fioln tho same auspicious period to the year 1835, the civil or political law of England has adopted the ecclesiastical %iow which is before stated concerning marriage, by regarding all marriages within such prohibited degress as voidable by the ecclesiastical courts on proper process, commenced during the lives of the contacting parties; and since the year 1835, by pronouncing all such marriages actnallr void, without the interposition of any legal process whatsoever. 3 That, on the great New Testament principle of submission to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, tho Conference is solemnly of opinion that the members of our societies aro bound by the law of Cluist to con.'oiii) themselves in al) arrangements concerning marriage to tho institutions of their country and especially because, in the very form of their enaotu.ent, there is a national recognition of the authority of the Divine will, as made known to mankind in the llolv Scriptures. "4. The Conference, moreover, deems itself now called upon to declare, that it is by no means comely, nor of good report, for members of our societies to repair to certain parts of the United Kingdom, or to foreign eountric*. in the hope of there finding facilities for contracting mar. iages within the prohibited degrees, aed without any intention of fixing their permanent residence in those countries,"
