REPORT OF THE HALL COMMITTEE.

PRESENTED TO SYNOD AT EDINBURGH, May, 1877. The Hall was opened, as usual, on the Tuesday after the first Sabbath of June, and closed on the Tuesday after the last Sabbath of July last. According to the instructions of Synod, the Committee met with the Professor and Students, both at the beginning and at the end of the Session. Six students were in attendance, viz. :Messrs. David Gray and Alexander King, of the fourth year ; William Spiers and Robert Hutchison, of the third year; and Mr. Alexander Smellie, of the first year, with Mr. John Martin, a fourth year's student, of the Reformed Presbyterian Synod.

The Rev. Professor Aitken, A.M., opened the Session with an able and instructive lecture, in which, after paying a graceful tribute to the late Professor Murray, D.D., he considered the duties and privileges of ministers as physicians of souls, as teachers of truth, and as defenders of the faith. Besides conducting his own class, Professor Aitken read Dr. Murray's lectures on “Systematic Divinity," and examined the students on their contents. Considering how important it is that the students should be thoroughly acquainted with the subjects studied in the Hall, the Committee announced at the beginning of the Session that the students, whose written examination papers did not amount to a certain value at its close, would not have their Session sustained. The Committee made this announcement, not because the students had been careless in their studies, for the opposite of this has, in general, been the case, but because they de sired to draw their special attention to the importance of the subject. The result has been, on the whole, satisfactory.

The following is the Professor's report The students attending the Hall during the past Session have been as follow : -Messrs. Gray and King of the fourth year; Messrs. Hutchison and Spiers of the third year; and Mr. Alexander Smellie of the first year. Mr Martin, of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, who had attended three previous Sessions, was also present as a fourth year's student. All performed the usual exercises prescribed at their several stages of study, and these were sus. tained, and in some cases with approbation.

I have endeavoured to the best of my ability to conduct both my own class and the class of Systematic Theology--the temporary charge of which was committed to me by the Synod. In the latter I have read about twenty-four of Dr. Murray's lectures, comprising the latter part of his course, and the students have read before me a large portion of the chapter in Calvin's Institutes, De Fide. In my own class, properly speaking, we have, on the days devoted to Greek, gone over minutely in the manner described in the last report, nearly the first three chapters of the Epistle to the Philippians. In teaching Hebrew I had to divide the students as formerly into two sections. The junior division included Mr. Smellie, and, during a part of the course, Mr. King, and these I instructed in the elements of the Grammar. In the
