when the Lord and Creator of nriiver

it gives aid and comfort to them, and

deeply indebted to 'tho '
All„intelligent ,beings_ ';ascend from
nature's laWs to the God of Nature and

intelligent Christians believe in the

but if it bo,pyoven that the teaChings
oh-the Bible are faVorable to that—sys
temof slayory which we ,can rpost'suc-'
,cossfuily prove is violently•opposed to
the laws of nature and' humanity, the
logical iedulf,.niust be, tho-rejection of
either revel ation,

of nature; for, agreeable to the hypoth

And, doubtlesS, to'many minds a con

date§ the right of, man to transmute
his fellow man, soul and body, into
chattels will; at the same time con ,
vinco him that the bible is not tho
word of -God'; and.such being tho ten
dOncY of = such use of it,' We' have 'DO
doubt that it has. resulted in making

awful tendency of suelr.reasoning, wo
should make, as if it was the least in
quiry,'ls it possible that'the meek and
lowly Jesus, the Author of, our bible,
whose bosom - was,.and is, the very'
temple of bersp7olenco, can bo'phargo
able with building an institution which
does such violence to all the attributes
of liiii Nature?
TG;is contended that because ,slavery
prevailed in the grecian and Roman
empires, tlierefere'the'primitive Chris
tians must havebeen sla,Veholders; and
why not contend that t hebaise some
emperors gloried in'tliiSir intoxication'
upon hrman blood; wrlin fora'hUnd-1
reds of thousapds" of their defeneelessi
subjects, upen' the gery ; altar:of their
insatiable ambition—and others mani
fested their mingled wickedness, am-'
hition and folly, in such acts of cruelty,
debauchery, and folly; as forbade:the
historian-,to record their deeds of dark
noes in detail;--=therefore
tire Christians must have lived in the
prac;tice.of' t,hose-aborninable • `crimes;
and why not contend; with cepml pre

—therefore the native converts to

: Again, it is stoutly insisted upon,
: that
_beeause Christ •and.. his ••iniinecli
