HINTS TO PARENTS.- 4 ilf you practice, sever.
ity, Speak.harshly, frequently punish in anger,
you will find 'your children will imbibe your
spirit'and manner. But if you are' wise, and
treat your little ones with tenderness, you will
fix the image of loire in their minds, and they
will love you • and each other, and in their con
versation will imitate that which, they have
.heard •from the tenderest friends that children
have on earth." Childhood is tho-no Wing sea-
son, and although the fruit may • not be devel
oped until lateat night, it is very rarely that
good seed fails to produce a bountiful 'harvest.

' We, print, in another column an extract from
a Natchei pope!, describing the circumstances
attending, the sale Of fifty-Six slayee, which
were disposed of at auction in-Mississippi, on
account of the Rev. Dr. Potts; pastor. , of'the,
liniversity place Presbyterian dutch in this
city. It seems that the reverend Doctor held
fifty-six slaves as security for tbeprincipal and
interest 'of a . mortgage, and that they were
sold at auction to satisfy his claim. This is
a fair bueinesi transaction, and probably Dr.
Potts was so horrified at- the' idea of having
anything to do with slaves that hc„ like many
other Northern- theoretical abolitiOnists who
come into possession of *that kind of property
in some unexpected way; sold his niggers .at
the earliest possible opportunity. Our South=

anti-slavery party of the North, and a hoit of
ills have been let loose'N;ori the community ;
but it is not so.erisy to shut them up again in
their prison or to, remedy the. eonsequencee.--
Let us see what may be done.
There'ean he no doubt in the mind of any
impartial absertier, that- the falling oft in the
shoe trade Which has led to low wages and
strikes, originated in the Withdrawal of the
Southern custom from New England, find that
such-withdrawal' woe the direct effect of the
anti-slavery crusade against the South,e(whicif
New England is the head-quarters. 'As long
as it was confined to mere agitation It was en
dured by the South, .though withouffi.dignation
and disgust. But when it came to blows, and
John - Brown, with his insurgent gang of trai
tors) aided and assisted by funds from the - very
'men in Massachusetts whii,were directlY or in
directly deriving 'a subsistence fronl the South,
'invaded:Virginia for the ,purpose , of treating a
servile insurrecfior, and abolishing by force
: and arms.the institution of the South, the ',if;
fair assumed a very difierent astittt.. Not Wee .
this the worst feature of, it. The Jittiniseme4
of the invasion by great public, meetings in, the
principal cities, including Boston; without nne
word of dissent, and the ringing of bells and
other.marki of reverence and respect, : if noto f
hero-worship, Which' signalized the'day 'of hii
'execution, in the towns of New • Engfand, were
sufficientto rouse' even'a .less spirited people,
than nut brethren of the South.into an attitrale
of defiance and reprisals..To: crown all, the
infamous book of Hinton Howirn Helper, which
suggest massacre of the white population of
the .South .as the - short Way to end .disputes
about slavery, was endorsed,by the leading men
of Neiv E . ngland and the North, including W..
H. Seward sixty-eight members of Con-,
gress. If the Southern people did not resent
this.they would be meaner than the worm that
turns upon the foot
-shat treads it.
..They did
l i .resent Rh) , withdrawing their business,` and
the consequence unfortunately • is that the in
hocent suffer with theguilty. . . •
.Now there is just one way . of redressing the
innocent and punishirig the guilty, and that is
by the constitutional Woripon'of the ballot box. ,
'Let everyman vote.against the party . which
has brought such evil upon• the
: North until if
is'crushed oat, and the South is satisfied that
the : people of New England do not sympathize
with their enemies; persecutors and slanderers.
Thus will harmony be restored, and the friend
ly relations and business intercourse which ex-
isted in formai% times will be establialied once
more, and there will be no need of strikes, for
he increase of besineas will compel the mane
fixcturers to pay more. satisfactOry • wages to
their hands.•• . , . • • • • • •••
