The war of 1776 which resulted in the
independence of America, was begun not
widt the purpose ol separating the colonies

rights of British freemen, they resisted op

conquered their itidepeudence and their
freedom. - ,
Besides the thineen coloniss which re
rolteJ there were other British possessions
in Atnericii ; there were Nova Scotfa, New
Brunswick, and Upper and Lower Canada.
But these refused 10 join wi'h the. thirteen

The war was carried on, and indepen

Jersey, Pennsj lrania, Delaware. Maryland,
Virginia,' North and Sooth Carolina Georgia,
and the New England States, then but lour
in number, viz , New Hampshire, Massa
chusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
These cons'ituted the original thirteen
States, acd all the other States now in the
Union are indebted to them for their posi
tion as States in the Union.
The Territory acquired with tudepen
der.ee from Great Britain, extended from
New Brunswick and the Canadas on the

Tha territory lying to the west of the Mis

ican Revolution under the dominion ol
France and Spain ; it extends from the Brit
ish possessions on the North, to tb,e Rio
Grande tori tKe Soalh, and to; the Pacific
Ocean on the West, and including. Oregon
and California, contains aa area of over
2 000,000 of- square miles. Th United
Slates at this moment claim dominion of all
this vast tract ol country from the Atlantic
to the Pacific, embracing an area (includ
ing Florida purchased ia J8l8) of about
2,900,000 sqare miles.
At the date of the Declation of Indepen
dence, all this immense territory was slave
territory, and every signer of the Declara
tion of Independence the signer from Mas
sachusetts equally with the signer from
South Carolina waa either himself a alaye
holder, or was the representative of slave
holders. "., During the period Irom the close of the
Revolution. to the ' jear 1799, slavery was
abolished ia Pennsylvania, and the States
to the East and North; of it. So at that lat
ter daie, seven of the original States had
become free States, and six remained slave

It is thus seen'hbw Vtr'inia is entiiled to
the once endearing appellation of mother
of Slates ; it is alo eeti that Old Virsioia

near 100 000 square mile, than tLe total
I area of the States of New York, New Jr

Does the donation of this immense do
main, the consenting that it shall be a free
territory, exhibit a spirit ol aggression ou
the part of :he slave power ?

are searching after truth read this array of

In 1820, Missouri applied for admission
into the Union as a State'. but having a sla

oi the Louiana territory, which by the
treaty of purchase with France wa guar
antied as slave territory the New England
faction raised a violent opposition to its aJ
mission, and the agi:ation was such, that
the safely of the Union was then greatly
endangered. The question was however
for a lirno settled, by the admission ol Mis
souri as a sjave State, but with a proviso,
called ih Qlissouri compromise, by vtiich it
waa agreed, that Irom that time, slavery
should be prohibited (Missouri being ex

and that no State should be admitted jviih

1 Confidence Woman.
Our Western exchanges contain lengthy
accounts of a young married woman named
Mrs. Van Vleet, who has been swindjing
the people of Micbigaa and Illinois. The
anuals of female crime and fraud during
the past quarter ol a century scarcely pre
sent a parallel case. Her, operations bava
been distinguished by a boldness, a darh of
romance, and, until recently, by an unvary
ing success at o:ice surprising and evincing
talent of a high order, worthy of a belter
use. Sne i described asyoung in appear
ance, not over thirty yearn of age, of hand
some and peculiarly attractive manner.
She droe with exqoisite taste, and niq.tes
in good society with all thease aad sslf
possession of a traveled woman of the
world. She has resided from ehihjliooJ in
Monroe county, and, unil her recent arrest,
has moved in good circles, where her re
peciability has been undoubted. Il ia said
ihat she has realized untold sums from her
ewiuJiiog operations during the past seven
or eight years. During this period she has
absented herself from home frequently
weeks at a time, reisrning as? mysterioudy
as she disappeared While at home she
lived in a style cf luxury end magnificence
that has been the envy of her friends and
acquaintances. During some of these pe
riodic excursions, Mrs. Van Vleet played
the literary role, and claimed lo be author
ess of "Rurledge " Soon after the apper
ance of RutleJge" she made her advent io
the quiet Easiem city ot " -. .Here she
sought out a prominent real estate agent,
and confided with him the important infor
mation that she was a woman of means,
and des'ued to purchase a residence in the
vicinity. The confiding pan of real estate
was fltttereiJ by the prospect ol selling
property to the authoress . of "Rut.edge.'V
and in deference to her literary fame,,toyi
tcd her to a home in bis family ..Her blaty,
dishments secured her an introduction t3
financial men, and the was enabled to get
a check for two thousand five hundred dol
lars on a Boston bank cashed. It was al
tered from twenty five dollars, to two thous
and five b.uodred dollars. Tfi fraud was
soon discovered, but not before the fair
swindler had escaped.. She is said to have
operated extensively in minor swindle in
the Eist, many of which transactions will
probably nevqr see the light. She has, at
different times personated Mrs. .General
Van Vleet, and it is stated that , n,ot long
since she put on a brigadier'a nnjform aad
went to Chicago, , where she U?e. audac
ity to personaie Gen. Van Vleet himself.
Sometimes she made her husband put on
the uniform, and the pair traveled as Gen.
Van Vleet and lady. The arrest ol this wo
man at Dundee, .MjcbiSn.ua caused con
siderable excitement and gossip ia the
neighborhood where she is known, and all
kinds of , storiea are afloat. One, is to the
effect that she donned the unilorm of
lieutenant, and by her dashing and brilliant
appearance, won the affection of a young
lady, married, and then cruelly deserted
her. She has a young child about a year
old, which gossip says she baa abducted in
some of her wande.rings .
Her husband is said .to be an' inoiTeisive
man, and has been used as the tool of this
artful and designing woman. She took ber
arrest with tha ulsasst sangfroid, and said
to a female acquaintance as sbe was about
to leave with the officers for Chicago, that
he had "escapeu irom ' """"
-ape. than this." Her arrest .ndexpo
are will probably close a career of.cnme

Under the head ot "Dead Faith, and an
Apostate Church," the Trite Pretfyteiian
deals some terrible blows at 1 he head of the
JL'ocdy infidel minister of the United Stales
who have literally turned our churches in
to dens of thieves. It ssys : .
We fondly thaught that poised opnn tha
trcth, animate f Ly the grace, and obliged
by commands cf her gloriqus Heac", . the
Church would have a bulwark against the
rushing tide of evil. We thought she would
be an oasis in the desert, where weary
travelers might refresh themselves ; we
thought she woald be aa island in the stor
my sea, where shipwrecked .mariner
might find safety and shelter. We did not
expect to hear in her solemn Assemblies
the voice of human anger, much less 0!
satanie malice We believed that in the
Lour ot civil commotion, when Sta es were
sundered, a,nd armies met in the shock ol
btuls, she wcu'd lift up holy bands with
out wrath and doubting, and implore her
mesierto drop from heaven the olive branch
of peach ; that she would gather ber eons
aud daughters about ber and say to thsm
''My children love one another," that she
would lay one hand upon Eparaim and the
other upon Manassah, and bless them both.
We need not say bow sadly we have been
disappointed.. In spite of ber boasted con
version and fiJe!ity to principle, this once
venerated body, atone bound, rbroke every
bond of truth aud charity, in eFect renoun
ced her allegiance to her great Head, and
allied hersell. vvith fiis arch enemy. She
has tornail aid from ber masters worlC,
and through her highest courts, and through
hundreds of her pulpits, is engaged in pro
pagating political iddas and io sounding the
dread tecsin of war. Her ancient schools
of the propheU where linger the memo
ries and repose the ashes of the illustrious
deaJ have been perverted to the advocacy
of a cruel war, and of a godlfes and inhu
man Abcli:isnim Her roost widely cir
culated newspaper, that used 10 howl so
frantically whenever an Episcopalian was
appointed to a chaplaincy io the aimy or
navy, is now the whining of ibe secular
power that lords it over GoA's heritag and
is rejected,, in disgust by Christians, and
even oy 1 men, on the ground that it is no
longer a teligious paper. Her oldest Quar
terly Review now receives its iarpiratisn
from disappointed military commanders,
who failing of success in the field, have be
come 'Mhe ccrc:nonicati.ii intelligence" of
absured politics acd impracticable cam
paign , , . ,
Her clergy in many instance vie with
each other, not in fidelity to God, .and the
souls of men, but in devotion to party aud
in zeal, for the carnase of battle. . . , .
Amid thia furmu babbie of, politics and
war, ws look n vain for the Magna Charta
of the auavriCiatioq, "Glory to God in the
highe : On earth, peace, good v.ill lo
rpen.. It is appalling to see the Church of
God spue from her mouth the Gopel cf
peace, and bawl her elf boaris in sti.nolat
ing the ferocious pa sion of men, and ia
cannonizing the red-handled fiend of the
battlefield! Where is her former hatred
of Abolitionism, now that she is causing
her own children to pass through the fire
to Moloch, and gloating over the propect
of servile insurrection ? What shall we
ay of lhe distinguished Mr. Vau Dyke's
sermon on lhat subject, and who now lift
up their hands and roll their eyes in pious
horror at tne sin of slavery ? Shall we say
as the world says of them, that they have
either been practising a Gross deception all
their lives,. or are., nqw baely yielding to
unmanly fear, shall we adopt the humiliat
ing charge s,o freely made, that.as a body,
the clergy of this country hive bean less
reiiab!ek more unwilling to sacrifice their
position to principle, raore shuffling .and
cowardly and blood thirsty, than any ether
class in it ?
Shall we repeal the sneer, that rather
than give up their places andjiheir salaries
they will preach and, pray under the dicta
tion of a turbulaut faction in iheir churches;
or the bitter taunt, of the soldier, who on be
ing reproved by one pf them for sweating.
replied, "I will not be rebuked by you,
r! -. .
I have exposed my life for three years in
ibis war, and but for the preachers there
would have, been no war !" -We desire to
bring no railing accusations, neiiher to
judge any man ; but by. the. fruits ye shall
know them, and the fruits of all their labor j
is that they, the Church, and religion itself,
are. brought into contempt .among men.
The Lord Jesus seems to have ..averted His
face, and the spirit of Grace to have de
parted from tfie scene of strife aad fanati
cism,' and bound in the foil of the devil,
and exposed to the -hooting, of the world,
nothing is left 10 us but a "Dead Faith and
aa Apostate Church."
