The Religious Excitement*
The excitement on the subject of reli
gion'urhieh is extending throughout the
oountry is, we believe, without a parallel.
the cities of New York, Philadelphia,
Boston, Cincinnati and many
-othcis, .together with numerous large towns
and: villages, daily prayer meetings are
hold and crowds attend them. The inter
,W mdnbited is strong and gathering power
with eyoiy audceediiig day. It is indeed
a “ great awakening,” and assures us that
.the hand the wdrk. Thous
ands who' perhapjj never before bent the
knee; in worship are now led to those daily
meetings, .and seasons. of refreshing arc
enjoyed. Classes are unknown—-for here
jbn find the hard-fisted son of toil kneel
With the man of wealth, you' behold the
mb .lady in her silks prostrate with the
hunHde and poorest of the poor—all Low
ing, inmeck submission in prayer to Jeho
vah. V,
• The .power of this movement is felt by
all and a new light seems to be dawning
upon .the world. The man of business
•ceams from his care, the laborer from his
.toil, the lady leaves the vanities of life,
the woman who earns her bread by toiling
.day and-night leaves her needle, and all
wend their way to the house of prayer.—
And there, surrounding one common al
tar; forgetting their positions in society
and looking not at the habiliments of their
neighbors, they lift their Voices in thank
fulness, ahd their hymns of, praise rise like
incense to the throne of the Most High.
- Well may we exclaim, what a change !
and whence cometh it f It is not man’s
creation, for many good and mighty men
have long striven to break down the pride
of the people, but without success. The
answer then must be, it comes from Him
whocan work and no man can hinder.’'
1 The “ excitement” has .been attributed
by some to the' recent “financial crisis.*”
iff'(his be the true cause, we are indeed
, glad, that we were afflicted as a nation, for
whatever tends to make people better in a
moral point of view is in reality no afflic
tion, but on the contrary a riph , blessing.
If this is to be the result of that “ crisis,”
none can regret it.
To show the feeling that exists at these
prayer meetings, and the character of the
persons who have been turned, it is to be
hoped forever, from the error of their ways,
through these instrumentalities we give' s
couple of extracts which we find in our ex
changes. A correspondent writes from
Newark, N. J„ to thc New York Tribune
as follows: —
“ What was my surprise, on last evening, on
entering the Baptist Church in this city, to find
among the seekers after grace old Wm. 'Har
rington, known. I believe, among the men of his
caste as u Boss” Harrington, one of the moat
notorious jprise-fighten pf the day. The old
gentleman had. been here on a visit, and was in*
duped to attend the meetings for several even
ings previous, until last night, 1 am fiappy to
•ay that her professed justification by. faith be
fore the meeting closed. He was heard to shy
before the meeting closed, ‘I have fought men
alimy life ; the rcst'bfitl will fight for Jesus.’ ”
The fpUpwing extract is from a New
Yorjc paper
“Awful .Gardiner was -present at the prayer
meeting inHie John street Methodist Church,
rriday. He lias a string voice, which was dis
tinctly beard in every part of the house.’ He
arid be wis not ashamed to declare that his past
lift had ndl been what it should have been. He

the. world, but never found any real satisfaction

putthe Methodist portion entirely (as the
next hugest.) The whola number report
ed in that paper (hiring thelasttwdmonths
reaches at least 40,000. The total of the
following list during the last couple weeks,
as abridged, is nearly 11,000 Maine ; 202;
New Hampshire, 103, Vermont, 93;

The revival apirit extends beyond this
continent. In England an unusual inter
est prevails, especially in London. Njor
is the excitement in the least abating. It
is Jeow spreading throughout the country,
and pervades almost every community. In
our own town an effort is making to kindle
the fire, and though the flame can not yet
be discovered, we hope soon to see it burst
fdrth in .all the brightness of a noon-day
sun. ‘ In most oases, heretofore, such ex
tensive revivals have been the result of
great efforts on the part of such men as
Luther, Calvin, Wcstly ahd others, who
stood a head and shoulders above their
IfellQW-lahorers, but in this instance it ap
pears to move on as successfully when
tended only by the laity of the churches,-
as whdn preceded by the most eloquent
appeals of learned divines. There is '.in
thief act alone much subject for thought,
and we sincerely hope it will induce those
who have heretofore given hut . little at
tention to such matters, to give it that
consideration which it deserves.
Printers Look Out!
A few days since we received an adver
tisement and circular from one Wm. E.
Hoyt, of Syracuse,; New York, a copy of
which has - no doubt been furnished to
many other newspaper publishers, reques
ting the insertion of, the advertisement at
reasonable rates, and promising to pay at
the end of three or six months. We warn
all publishers to beware of this shark. By
reference to our “ Black List,” .they will
observe the manner in which he has kept
his promises with us. He gives a number
of references, and among the rest several
ministers. Now if, those ministers have
.any regard for their reputations for truthr
and wish to save their credit, we advise
them to withdraw their names from Mr.
Hoyt’s circular as speedily as possible, if,
indeed, they ever authorized, him to use
them. When he pays up the “ old score”
with us, we shall be willing to enter into a
new contract, provided he pays cash in ad
vance, but on no other conditions. Those
publishers who insert his card on the
strength of the references given, must not
complain, if after having been warned of
his character, they do not receive their
pay. It is time that publishers of news
papers should put a stop to this system of
rascality, by promptly refusing to insert
such advertisements unless accompanied
by the cash, or the name of some
whom they know to be responsible. The
fact that one publisher (who Js eager to
grab up anything in the shape of an ad
vertisement,) inserts such a card, induces
others to think that theperson sending the
card is known to that publisher and re
sponsible, and thus many are humbugged.
For our part we Will hereafter publish no
advertisements unless the cash accompan
ies them, .or the parties sending them are
known to us tp be responsiblc.

•plete with argument ibd deserving of the
consideration of our legislators and the
public. of the detrimental
effects erf this Tax upiln the,indnstrial in
terests of the middle jand western portions
of the State, it will “ the follow
ing copy of a petitions sent to the Legisla
ture bythe steumboatmen of Pittsburg.—•
It is prefaced by ani ; editorial from the
Greensburg Dcmocrqt , a paper that has
always heretofore opposed the repeal of
the Tax: H
The following isa copy of a petition sent to
the Legislature, signed by nil the Pittsburgh
steamboat men, (with, Perhaps bne. or more ex
ceptions,) and presented by Judge Wilkins to
the Senate a few days jjjgo, in favor of a repeal
of the Tonnage Tax on;|he Pennsylvania Rail-,
road. , This is certainiy lone of the strongest pa
perethathneever yetniade its appearance on
that subject; and although we hare hitherto
been opposed to the repeal of the tax, yet if .the
facts stated in this memorial be true, and we
have no reason to' doubt that they are, and the
Railroad Company willumake a corresponding
reduction in the rates of freight, we are free to
say that this petition of our Western Pennsyl- j
vania steamboat men should receive that careful
and honest Legislative inttenticin to which it is
entitled, and in consideration of the subject
should receive its just weight,
“To the honorable die Senate and Honse of
Representatives of thej Common wealth of Penn
sylvania : The undersigned, captains, and own
ers of steamboats, running from the port of Pitts
burg on the Western rivers respectfully represent
to the Legislature that .their business is languish
ing, a majority of theirifreights, and their offi
cers and crews disbanded and thrown out of
employment, while their accustomed trade is
diverted into other andcheaper channels, vis;
to the Eastern cities. 6y the Baltimore and Ohio
Emil road, and by the way of New Orleans.
The dccjline ofthcir. tradc commenced with
the opening of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
to Parksburg, and fbr ihany months past there
has been an average of Sixty five steamboats laid
up in the port of Pittsburg fer want of business,
and suffering a greater detcrioiation in value
than if fully employed, though the Ohio river
has been constantly in good navigable condition.
These boats wear out in five years, the cost
(of the sixty-five,) is ope million seven hundred
dollars, and the number of their un-employed,
crews is hundred and seventy
five men. The expense of running them—for i
wages, fuel, provisions, &c., —exceeds one mil- 1
lion five hundred thoUs&nd dollars! per year, j
which is chiefly expended in the Commonwealth
for its products.
In the struggle to retain the trade on the
Pennsylvania raule, the rate of freight from Cin
cinnati to Pittsburg, (a distance of fire hundred
miles,) has.been reduced to five dollars, per ton,
while the Tonnage Tax, imposed by the Common
wealth on all freight passing over the Pennsyl
vania Railroad, amounts to nearly half this sum
At equal rates the Pennsylvania route enjoys ■
a decided preference with shippers, but when
the markets ate not unduly excited, a difference
in the cost of transportation, no matter how
small,, decides the route.
With two hundred miles longer river naviga
tion and a Tonnage Tax of nearly one dollar per
ton against us, it is nbt possible to maintain the
business on the Qhio river and Pennsylvania
Railroad route.
Your petitioners would find immediate relief
by reduction of the rates of freight over the
Pennsylvania and to this end they
pray your honorable bodies for the repeal of the
Tonnage Tux.
