C. C. 13.0A 0 ,, lsy., g „,„ [For Voice of Free
dom, publishecrist Brandon, Vt., the following sketch
of a sermon preached by a very honest so t of n man
who is a thriving farmer, but thinks he has u "call ek
er• Sabbath to free his mind" to the people. It is one
ofthe most original discourses WO ever read:
"Nly dear hearers, in the fu.-t place I'll show that
man is ondone critter; secondly, that a Savior has been
perwidcd,and thirdly how he is to get out of this pickle.'•
Haying thus, in the most approved manner, laid out
Iris work, he continued in the follewing strain:
"It is recorded somewhere in the good Scripture, I
think it is idler in the Psalms or the book of St. Acts
that man was at fast created upandicu!nr, but he has
found out many sorts of coati ivances. Now, my friends,
I hold that about the biggest of these contrivances
are sin. Sin, my hearers, are sceditian—and seeditian
is the old Adam—the evil seed; the tares and the wheat
—don't pat me? Sin, my friends, Las cost the wield
ii' . great deal. It costs a man more than it would to
keep a cow—yes, even if she Fa her foot in a pail of
new milk every night; and would hook down a rail
fence like a tumid sarpant. Don't you see how foeli,h
it is then ? Why, you can' t computate that nation of
hurt it has dm° to the airth and nil den's in it. If it
haTnt been for Sin, there never would hfive. been any
Mrtlignakes, nor thunder, `rw ruin: and snow storms,
and caverns, and the catracks, and precipices, would
never a happened —but the world would have been as
level and stnnoth'as a dish ! There wouldn't been no
tip-led nor dowrish ill, nor noticing to hurt amt detract
ifv the poor weak ancestors of fallen Adam. Oh, my
fri-nds, I feel to put it into you the rael gospel licks !
You're all a pack of sinners. so you are; you've gone a--
Tray—you wander in forbidden paths—the sperit ui.tt
with you—in the words of the apostle, ye hatch the
cock-turkey's eggs, and weave the spider's web, and
hring forth young viper's—don't you see ?"—and so on
rattle-de-bang , like a locomotive turned loose under cc
hilh pressure of steam, hardly pausing to take breath
fir two mortal hours, pouring flints such a confused
firti . bled mangled scripture. mnrdered English, and
unmitigated nonsense, that his 'firstly,' 'secondly,' and
thirdly,' were soon smothered to death, and nu farther
intelligence was heard of them during the discourse.
This is . no caricature; foe it would be impossible to car
icature this "Son of Thunder:" for dashing at once in
to u - nnfiised absurdity, there is nationg left for the Mi
agination of the caricaturist to supply.'
Extrart from the rentarks of Dr. Moriarty t,t
toss.stiog of the friends: of Irish Repeal, held at Bur
fold on the 16th inst.
"What do we in :an by Repeal! Is it possible that
ir this country—the land of intelligence, that such a
question Frtay be asked! What do we mean by 'repeal?
An answer might be required of us by the Hinton—by
the Cossack, on the banks of the Danube—by the bloody

A,NFX.tTION OF TEx.vi.—The .Ih/1:e Atre, nn Cc-
ealent democratic paper, takes a firth position against
the project of the annexation of Texas to the United
States. The reasons.riven by the advocates of this
measure ore, first, the probability of Texas-again be
coming a Mexican province, and secondly, the danger
of it falling into the hands of Great Britain. The Age
shows clearly that t' - e fmrs of the first are groundless,
The Texans pined their independence when their pop
ulation was not bairns large a; it is now. They have
since organized a form of government and provided the
menus ofdefeum:., and if they retain any of the courage
that inspired them at San Jacinto. Sari Antonio, and
other fields that attest their valor, Texas can never lie
re-conquered by Mexico. But, remarks the Age,were
this ground of apprehension ever so just, we do not
see that it would form a sufficient reason for the step
proposed. The territory of Texas was forcibly wrest
ed from the
fz overnment of Mexico, and if, failing to
nilintaiii its t itorteil independence, it should bill back
into its cnigiiisl position, that of a Mexican colony, it
would only form another instance of tins ueeessful revol
ution. The right of reemnstranee or complaint on the
part of the United States, would he at least questiona-
I e.
Aside from the foregoing reasons, what is to be gain
cd, either to Texas or the United States, by its annexa-

The subject chosen was one which reipiiivd nohttle

It is rarely indeed that our lecture rooms furnish so
much matter for instruction as 1)r 17 etroLn's lecture

"FATHER OF WATERS. "— We lIC\ el' could under
stand why this mini is applied to the Mississippi
River. It is certainly a misnomer. The Mississippi
is not so long or large a stream as the iNTissaini, and its
boisterous, impetuous and turbid character is derived
fro:n that river. Above the mouth of the Missouri it
is 113 clear and placid as the Ohio, and it is only below
the junction of the streams that the Mississippi assumes
that character that should entitle her to the appellation
of the "Father of Waters." NVe theta fore insist that
she has no just claim to the title, and we shall my
aloud fur "justice to the Missouri."

this city some years since has become very popular in
the East an .I S.ru'.li. She took a benefit at the Chitties
ton Theatre on the '2 Oth.. on which occasion she had
a crowded heave. The Courier observes: •diowever
great Mis-, Lee's popularity in her procession, it does
not exceed that of her private life. Her to dcst and
mrasiumin_ manners have won for her many friends
that appreciate her virtues." Miss Lee's "private
life" may be, and we have no doubt is, 0. K. but her
dancing must have improved greatly Arco she was
here, for it vs as the general opinion then that she was
no "great shakes."

says, it has been ascertained that Mlle Calve, the late
prima donna of the French company, km put an end
to her life by poison. O•w other Now Orleans papers
up to the 20th make no allusion whatever to the mat
ter. The first report stated that she had mysteriously
disappeared on the morning of the 9th; but a friend
of hers, in a letter-received at New York, mentions hay-
Mg seen her on the evening of the 1..1.th. We trust,
therefore, that there is no truth io these reports.
