A SCOTCH DISSENTING MONUMENT. The dispute which has arisen between her Majesty's Board of Works andtheUnited Presbyterian Presbytery of Dunfermline has been discussed at a meeting of the Presbytery. The proposal made by Mr. R. Mathieson, her Majesty's Inspector of Works for Scotland, that the inscription to be put upon the monument to be erected to the memory of Thomas Gillespie, the founder of the Scottish Relief Church, should merely set forth that that divine ceased to be a mem- ber of the Established Church of Scotland, was repudiated by the presbytery as being too ambiguous. It was accordingly resolved that another representation be sent to Lord Henry Lennox setting forth that as Gillespie's deposition from the Established Church of Scotland is the chief ground on which his memory is held in honour, the inscription to be put upon the monument must necessarily bear a statement to that effect; that to do otherwise would be to defeat every end which the presbytery have in view in seeking to put up the memorial. It should be explained that the Abbey Church of Dunfermline, in which it is proposed to erect the monument, is the property of the Govern- ment. and is connected with the Established Church of Scotland.
