ACTION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

At the meeting of the General Assembly of the Pres byterian Church in the United States of America, May, 1840, the subject of Church Psalmody was referred to a Committee, which Committee, in the year 1842, unanimously agreed to approve and recommend the Caurco PSALMIST, as being, in their judgment, the best adapted to the worship of God in our age and country. As such, it was commended to the Christian public, and especially to all the churches under the care of the Assembly. This Report was approved by the General Assembly of 1843, and the Church PSALMIST recommended to the churches.

At a meeting of the General Assembly held in New York, May, 1856, it was resolved: “In order to preserve uniformity in Church Psalmody, that the Publication Committee be authorized to negotiate with the compilers and publishers of the Church Psalmist, and to purchase that book, if this can be done on reasonable terms."

At the meeting of Assembly in Cleveland, 1857, the Assembly, recognising, with gratitude to God, the securing to the possession of the Assembly a Book of Psalmody which they can call their own, unanimously recommended to the pastors and churches that they use all reasonable diligence in promoting uniformity by the introduction of this book.
