upon thee to preach:; Jesus-.Christ, otir must
holy Saviour, and thee says thee wa.s xadlei ia
this work; and thee is publishing a political
paper. Well dont : object to that,: Jesus
Christ taught us the best politics the world
has ever known, and I think those who teach
Christ's doctrine, ought to teali. politics ahd
must, if they preach the reaching 4that; be
bdis them. I have no doubt but; that Batair,
aud iiis party, who want to have every thing
their own u ay, object to thee,.a minister, hav-i
ing any thing to do with "the dirty waters of
politics.'' ; If the waters, of politics are "dirtyx
ought they not to be purified, and ought not
the teachers of Christ's latf to try and do it-
And thou art working an a .good cause too, L
like the cause, thee advocates : ;I , aiu with
thee, and now I hope thee will hear me. ,r
am more afraid that thee, will defim "the"wa-
ters of politics' with thy ficsby spiri,than I
am of thj' meddling with the dirtj . wafers. -1
want thee to remember thy calling, ami. to re
member what Jesus says thee must be, when
thee writes for thy paper. , 1 fear thee does
not do this. Thee manifests a bad spirit to
wards thy neighbor of the Gazette, and calls
him hard names and speaks very -contemptuously
of liiui. This thee did. not learn from
thy Master. Will thee look at some of thy
remarks, in thy editorials about "Theo. Wright
& Co." Remember, friend", the wrath of man
worketh not the-praise of God. Paul says,
"A bishop must bo llandczs, sober, good
behaviour, apt to' teach, no striker, hut pa- I

'--2 Tim. 2': 24, 2".- Again, "A bishop must
be blameless, as the Stewart-, of God.,- not self
willed, nor soo7i ungry-r-no striker" Tit. 1 : 7.
Of the Great Teacher, it was sail, "lie shall
not strive, nor civ, neither shall any man her.r
his voice in tho streets." Now frijiid, I have
given thee the highest authority (thee, knows
we protvjstaiits appeal tu too Bible-as the only,
rule) for condemning thylieshly spirit. Would .

thy general cause, and the object thee aims at,
but 1 would have thce-tnond thy manner and

sympathy with those who say that "ministers",
have no right to meddle with politics. (Thee
knows I approve not altogether of a paid min
istry, and if any man will agree to preach to a
people for so much, and, to avoid giving of
fence to them, arid to fulfill tho'- duties of his
contract, will lay otl' his own individual re
sponsibilities, and obligations . to the law of
God, as he would his coat, when he goes to
chop wood, and will cease to think, and speak
and act for himself in politics, and on ruin,
and slavery, aud Rome, as God may give him
light and conscience, I despise him above
all creatures upon Gods earth, and he is the
most abhorable thing God ever made; but if
lie is a whole man, full four quarters of a man,
free to think, speak and.Taet, : independent. of
all restraint but ( kls law, refusing to be bound
by any other rule than God's' revealed will, I
li'onor thaf man- as God's " noblest workman
ship. Though men mav give him thousands
for preaching, he; dont preach for pay, but out
tne fullness of his own heart and con
science.) God ha but one la'.v for" ministers
anb people (they are all people, I take it) ahd
they are as much bound to lie patriotic as oth
ers and to seek the good of all men by secur
ing "righteous laws, as in giving . alins, and
ministering to their wants. ' "
' But I cannot run oiit these ideas now." ' Do
thy duty, thy vcliolc duty, and then thee will
do it in the right manner, and with the right
spirit also. Let me refer thee to the Journal
and Republican of our county. ' They are as
hostile in xolitics as thee and the Gazette are.
The editors are not ministers, they dont eveu
pretend lobe religions, yet they are gentleman

Romish SiterstitiosS'. The foreign corres
pondent of th N. Y ' Observer who writes un
der the signature of 'G. de F." in a late letter
says of Belgium that in, regard to the gospel,
the majority of th; people are grossly super
stitious. Nowhere, exeept perhaps in Spain
and the' iitors' retired districts1 of;' Italy, have
the priests taught, unorp extravagant, fables.
He gives the following examples : "There is,
near Brussels, a place: much renowned for its
pilgrimages. At certain appointed seasons,
thousands of people go-thither from ail the
provinces of Belgium. They walk upon their
knees around the altar, and so numerously that
the marble pavement is worn hollow. What has
.been placed in this much frequented chapel
f.uter, and yon see upon tho alt a ran iron colbn.
And what is" in this coflin? A distaff with a
few bits ff thread wound around it. Well! this
distatf and thread belonged, according to the
declaration of the priests, to the Virgin Mary!
Ihe V lrgin spun with this- distaff, while the
infant Jesus slept in her amis j These s icred
relics therefore Work wonderful miracles!
What imposture and profanation !
"In the city of .Leigc ther is a black Vir
gin, who also works astonishing miracles.
This black Virfin, who seeiss to belong to the
African ' race rather than-to-a Europe-it-- e
ple, in her tarn djaws innumerable pilgrims.
The priests telatc; that this Virgin miraculous
ly protected the city of Liege during a
bloody siege, and that she received all the

The Goldea Keaa BeUveon Extremes.'
One hundred years ago, delegates from all
the then American Colonies, met in a conven
tion to make a treaty with the Six Indian Na
tions, and to adopt mean for mutual defence
.-.gainst the French. Dr. Franklin moved tho
project of an union, which was rejected by tiro
Home Government as too democratic', and by
nil the coloniesas not liberal enough. TJwjphi-.
losopher always thought that his plau wasaju
dicioiis one, because it was a goldea "mean be
tween the two extremes. ; So wc1 regard the
present attitude of' the Know Nothings itho'
Washington Union abuses them, as Abolition
ists, .aud the N. Y, Tribune denounces them,
as secret allies of ultra Pro Slavery men. The
determination of the American party to have
nothing todo with Slavery agitation, but to
leave the subject entirely to the States, arous
es.the:aager of ;ultraists and radicals. ., What
the prion and the Tribune attack with equal
malignity, must be something very near that
which is needed to meet th wishes of the
great conservative masses, who are anxious to
"presetve the Union" not ouly from those
w.ho spit upon tbe Constitution and the Decia-,
ration of Independence, but from those who.
believe Slavery to I -the corner- stone cf all
