"...The historian has not only given an account of its ministers and elders, but also of their relatives and descendants, so that the book is a valuable biographical repertory.

Chapters eight to eleven are upon Rev. Chas. Beatty and his descendants, one of the staunchest patriotic Presbyterian families of the land, still represented in its best qualities in our Presbyterian ministry. Extracts from Mr. Beatty's journal, which was published in London, relating to the Indian wars and missions, are given in the ninth chapter.

ART. I.- The Spirit of the Fathers of Western Presbytarianism

ON Tuesday, February 12th, of the present year, a centenary convention was held at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, composed of representatives of the twenty Presbyteries contained in the four Synods of Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Wheeling, and Ohio, which was designed to commemorate the visit to that region of the Rev. Charles Beatty and the Rev. George Duffield, by the appointment of the old "Synod of New York and Philadelphia" While the interest in the religious history of that region, so important in itself and in its influence upon the Presbyterian Church, is fresb, it is a favourable time to consider some points in the character and labours of its pioneer ministers.

It may be premised that this is a late hour to hold a "centenary" convention. The visit of Messrs. Beatty and Duflield was made in the summer of 1766; and the commemoration of that event is a year too late. But we cannot grant that to have been the kindling of the light of Presbyterianism in that territory. In the early part of the last century large numbers of the people from the North of Ireland were driven by the....

... A good many such colonies [organized congregations] , we doubt not, existed long before Beatty and Duffleld's visit.......

.. And it should be particularly noted that the mission of 1736 by Messrs. Beatty and Duffleld seems to have been largely intended for the preaching of the gospel to the Indians. The following is the entire minute of Synod in regard to it in 1737: "Messrs. Beatty's and Duffield's mission to the Indians and frontiers came under consideration. And they report that they performed their mission to the frontiers and among the Indians. That they found on the frontiers numbers of people earnestly desirous of forming themselves into congregations, and declaring their willingness to exert their utmost in order to have the gospel among them, but in circumstances exceedingly distressing and necessitous, from the late calamities of the war in these parts. And also that they visited the Indians at the chief town of the Delaware nation, on the Muskingum, about one hundred and thirty miles beyond Fort Pitt, and were received much more cheerfully than they could have expected. That a considerable number of them waited on the preaching of the gospel with peculiar attention, many of them appearing solemnly concerned about the great matters of religion; that they expressed an earnest desire of having further opportunities of hearing those things; that they informed them that several other tribes of Indians around them were ready to join with them in receiving the gospel, and earnestly desiring an oppor tunity. Upon the whole, that there does appear a very agreeable prospect of a door opening for the gospel being spread among these poor benighted savage tribes." .........

Presbyterianism on the Frontiers

( Western Pennsylvania.) The religious history of this region has been very remarkable. There is no part of the history of Presbyterianism on the frontier more so. In November, 1758, the Rev. Charles Beatty preached the first Protestant sermon west of the Alleghenies within the walls of Fort Pitt. The mission of Beatty and Brainard in 1763 to the "distressed frontier inhabitants" in that region, had been prevented by the renewal of savage hostilities on such a scale that west of Shippensburg every building was burned, many people were murdered, and many perished in the flight. Dr. Wing speaks of the panic among the people as "one of extraordinary extent and intensity." The people "fled almost in a body over the mountains toward Laincaster." (Wing's Discourse on Presbyteries of Donegal and Carlisle 16, Cen. Mem., West Penn., 209.)

P 280:
In 1763, the Synod of New York and Philadelphia, the highest judicature of the Presbyterian Church at that time in this country, appointed the Rev. Messrs. Beatty and Brainerd to visit the frontier settlements in Pennsylvania to preach the gospel, and to report the spiritual condition of the people. At that time the frontier was the eastern foot of the mountains; so that Chambersburg, Shippensburg, and Carlisle were within the reach of savage foes. This mission was not fulfilled, because at the time they were to have commenced their mission, a most violent and destructive Indian war broke out. Families residing in the valleys between Chambersburg and Bedford were murdered, their cabins burnt, their cattle and grain destroyed and every thing laid waste. The Indians having been chastised and become more quiet, the Synod of New York and Philadelphia appointed the Rev. Charles Beatty and the Rev. George Duffield on a mission of three months. They visited the military station at Fort Pitt, preached to the small settlements on the way, and extended their journey as far as Muskingum, and preached to the Delaware Indians collected there....

P173:  Steubenville (Ohio) was laid out in 1798, by Bezabel Wells and James Ross. It derives its name from Fort Steuben, which was erected in 1789, on High-street, near the site of the Female Seminary. It was built of block-houses connected by palisade fences, and was dismantled at the time of Wayne's victory, previous to which it had been garrisoned by the United States infantry, under the command of Colonel Beatty.

P 228: A father Beatty served as wagonmaster in Ohio in 1862 In a lull of his paroxysms of anguish, he [ Brigadier-Gen. ROBERT L. MCCOOK -summer 1862] said to young Captain Burt, "Andy, the problem of life will soon be solved for me. My good friend, may your life be longer and to a better purpose than mine." In reply to Father Beatty, the brigade wagon-master, if he had any message for his brother, Alex., he answered: "Tell him and the rest, I have tried to live as a man, and die attempting to do my duty."

His [William Wilson] public spirit was evinced in 1814, when no funds could be obtained from Washington to meet the obligations of the Government; he tendered the Navy Agent, James Beatty, a loan of $50,000, and thus sustained the honor of the Government and then refused to accept any interest, saying that "he did not wish to profit by the necessities of his country." His sons James and Thomas were men of like character and well maintained the credit of the house and reputation of his name.

1864 anti-slavery church protest letter

Page 42:

"The subscribers deeply regret that the fact of the extensive circulation through this Diocese of a letter by John Henry Hopkins, Bishop of the Diocese of Vermont, in defense of Southern Slavery, compels them to make this public protest. It is not their province to mix in any political canvas. But as ministers of Christ, in the Protestant Episcopal Church, it becomes them to deny any complicity or sympathy with such a defense."

"This attempt not only to apologize for slavery in the abstract, but to advocate it as it exists in the cotton States, and in States which sell men and women in the open market as their staple product, is, in their judgment, unworthy of any servant of Jesus Christ. As an effort to sustain, on Bible principles, the States in rebellion against the government, in the wicked attempt to establish by force of arms a tyranny lhder the name of a Republic, whose' corner-stone' shall be the perpetual bondage of the African, it challenges their indignant reprobation."
