the converts or disciples were first to re
late their experience,or in other words - to
give a reason of their hope professedly - ,and
if approved of the church, the members
of the church were to receive them. See-
ondly, in excluding refractory members.
The churches are directed by the apostle,
is said Paul" I command you in the name
- of the Lord Jesus Christ, to withdraw
from every brother that walketh disorder
ly." (2. This. 5-1--6.)" Itk, cases
,of individual, offence, Jesus ,Chrtst, the
law giver of his church, gave "directions
also in thiS case. (as laid down in Mat
thew 19th ch.);The.offended or aggrieved
brother is directed new to proceed, and in
case he does not succeed in his first ,nor
in his second step of labor ; then " tell it
'to the - church." The church, the mem
bers of the church, are then directed
how to dispose of the case. Again, in
choosing officers % ministers, deacons &c.
He that is great among you let him be
your minister, (said the master.) Now
the. requisite qualifications of both minis
terS and deacons are specified > in the new
testament, and it is'the business of the
members-of the church to 'decide -in 'this
matter, and - even in the distribution of
public charities. The apostle Paul called
the multitude of. the disciples unto him,
and said : look ve out seven men of hon-,
o , st report & - c., whom' we may appoint
over this busineis." (Acts 6 ch.) Again,
it is. the business of the people of the
church also, to appoint and send forth
"thirlisters ". or ",embassadors " into
parts ,far and nearest preach the
ti-td; thus , to be the " servants ' of the
church•Or people for Jesus' sake. (2.Cor.
- Hence Paul said of Titus and Dike,
that - they "chosen of the churches "
to travel with him, that is to assist. him in
,the ministry. : (2. Con "If our
brethren be enquired. of, (said Paul,) they
are the messengers' of the church's:" 'The
' 'churches sent them out. 2. Cor.
sow, Mr. Editor:all this looks very
much - like WebSters description of De
mocracy, that is, " a form of, government
in which the supreme
.power is lodged—in
the hands of the. peopl collectively,"=-" a
goVernment giving the extension of the
right' of suffrage. to all classts of men."—
Moreover we learn from the history. of the
very - nOted7homas Jefferson, that he was
one of the committee who was , . appointed
to draft, a • de4aratiop of independence,
and that he was requested by the others
to draw off the instrument, which he did
(although a'young Man at that time r ), and
his draft was adopted with a very few
valuable amendments ou the 4th of July
.1776. _ This circumstance, Mr. - Editor,,
leads us 'right on the line of our subject,to
notice the following statement, which was
made by Dr„Fishbaek, of Lexington -Ky,
to the editor of "The Baptist guardian,'
Richmond Va., some few years ago:
"The fellowing circumstances which
occurred in the State of Virginia, relatite
to Mr. Jefferson, was detailed to me by
Eld. Andrew Tribble about - six years ago,
who since died when 93 years old. AZ
, drew Tribble Was the. Pastor of a Baptist
church which held its monthly meeting's
a shor t distance from Mr:Jefferson's house,
eight or ten years before -the American
- - Revolution: Mr. Jefferson attended, the
meetings of the Church for several
months in succession, and after one of
them, asked Eld.. Tribble to go home, and
' dine with him; with which he complied.
Mr. Tribble asked Mr. Jefferson how he
was pleased with the church government.
Mr. Jefferson replied, that it -had Struck
- him with great force, and had interested
him much. .That he considered it the only
form of pure democracy that there ex
isted in the world, and had concluded that
it would be the best plan 'of government
for the Arnerican2Colonies." Mr. Editor,
I 'have thus briefly given youlny viewsjof
Democracy, as I trust in harmony WI
newlestament church order, and haVely.
• the, way took the liberty to quote the cor
roborating testimony of Dr. 'Moshiem and
and Thomas Jefferson. However, in- re-
. lation -- to' national Politics, I would re=
mark, I never have been identified with'
any political party. .1 profess to be en
gaged hi business somewhat aside from
those matters, yet as_ -touching the doc
trine of Democracy as laid down in = the
-Books; I heartily concur with those prin
ciples. .Therefore I have no indication to
- burn my Bible. It is my map, my com
pass. and my chart, consequently I cannot
cherish.any fellowship fcir the ancient di
vine,unleishe can give us a bettter reason
for burning his bible. Finally,in- slamming
,np the whole matter with particidar ref
' erence to him .and his "short sermon," I
have pretty much concluded that - he in
tended:to deal in sarcasm , throughout—
, that he designed it for a mere bdrlesque.
• 'Whether that was his design, or not,there
is mischief concealed -in his production
aside from politics which he may not
have Tall y. apprehended. — Perhaps he is

his brethren professedly believe in Demo-.

the way of his Political thread, or charita

any man to make the Bible:and the church.
theatre fir. play , and .sport, or .a scaffold
to stand up n for the put pose of turning in
to ridicule the apprebended,politiaal Orße_
ligious wrongs of -his ; neighbors. The
quotingOf the scripture in a light and -"in
teverent manner can do good, is,
no doubt a very prolific source of much
evil'in the world. " Evil communications
corrnpt good manners," and yet it is to an
alarming extent the " switch 7 of the age.
ThOmas Payne, when be wrote hisl book
of ." Common Sense," was admired,' his
work • bellied- forward: the_ American
Revolution, but when he - began to tamper
-with the Bible and with churches, tern
ing all into ,ridicule ash published in, • hiS
"Age of Reason," (though at first, as, he
said, " all was for sport and-amusement")
alas ! how soon, and hovi. rapidly he sunk
into infamy and - contempt: - The. making
light of the Bible and christianity;rhower
er unsuitingly at first, is the conimon
way that most menandwomen have ta
ken, who afterwards have 'been noted for
crime and infidelity, and finally; the histo
•ry of the present age, goes to show that
some of the most skeptical and heaven
daring, gedless nieni'of our tithes, were
once professed - . machers_ of the gospel,
and for a while *adea conspicuous figure
in the world: The history of 'their fall
commences with. • their making . light •of
some portions of the Bible, - and, elloso the

and derision. ' •

thrown off the - track and pil i tched down,
the bank. There'were quite a number of
soldiers. on the Op of the car at 'the time,
but as the ear's were moving quite slow,
they all escaped without injury. The car:

the unity and integrityof the government
by running counter to his. maxims of po
