Duty of the Church and Ministry
In Relation to the Iniquity of Slavery.
qf Silence and Consequent Conni•
The inquity of Slavery never could have
grown to the enormity and extent of power
and wickedness in which it now reigns,
except by such connivance and silence.
Had the thunders of the word of God

the beginning, this iniquity would have

But when God has cointnatided His angels
to loose the sea& and the thunders to ut

Christian expediency requires us to restrain

one word against it—till at length it bold

claims to be a sightsi institution ; and

step to step, till now it is publicly enshrin

this position, with these impious, unblush

front it with tiny authority but God's, that
of God's word to the conscience. Every
other consideration it has disregarded, ev
ery obligation overridden ; all political
combinations against it have been as fl.tx

comparison with the word of God upon the
conscience, is as unspun hemp In compa

ministry to conic forward and apply it.
And, by as much as this remedy has been
neglected and delayed, while the iniquity
has been growing., and the evil rolling on,
by so much is the greater zeal, energy,
boldness and perseverance now requisite.
It is not now a few words that will answer

But there are objections urged against

I • MY HEARERS It you think that your
lonely preacher, through practical experi
ence, is more capable of giving a perfect
analysis of Love, than anybody else, you
sit there under a heavy mistake. True,
in my more susceptible days—and before I
took to chewing tobacco—l often felt a
slight, mysterious jerking at the heart
strings, but only once the real, magnetic,
galvanic, spasmodic; cornlsive, soothing;
ed moon ; the whole fabric is flimsy trash
ut the best. Then, if Love be nothing
more than an idiot's dream—gilding every•
thing. and convertmg airy nothing into a
seemingly Build something, and yet noth
ing after all—then, I say, Love wont pay
for candle-light—much less for either its
lai;annut or its brandy•cocktails. My la
mented friend Moore says, most pathetic
ally :
New days may mime with mildor light,
Or shed a brighter heats ;
Bet thoro's walling half so sweet in life
As Love's yoong dream
..Love was mice a little boy;" and full or
mischief ; and then all his dreams, though
very sweet, were notwithstanding„ very
foolish ; and he doubtless found so, when
he came to grow up and know the differ

and a pretty ankle. My text, brethren.
wens to give us to understend; that when
Love's silly dream vanishes before the
broad daylight of Reason, the dreaming
f..0l is very likely to go mad as a March
hare. If this don't hold good in all in-
stances, I tell you, my friends, that in a
majority of cases, it will apply as tenacious
ly as hot glue in a nigger's wool. Hear
the same poet rave, in his crazy second
thought :
Oh I the days are gone when Beauty 'aright
My heart's chain move--
When all my dream, front 'nom till night,

to think that the days are forever past
when he had little else to do, and 'vas fit
for nothing else, than to crawl under a
gooseberry bush and dream of "Love,
still love,"—or sit and doze while Beauty
was manufacturing a halter for his heart,
and perhaps for his neck. That the girt.
ed bard of Hibernia's Green Isle died of a
softening of the brain—after he hod drunk
of love and wine to their very lees—is a
melancholy fact.
That the dream of love "vanishes 'neath
the daylight's gleam," is perhaps inure
true than poetical. All !overlie but dream

The Mother's Inflnoue,
The solid rock which turns the edge of
the chisel bears forever the impress of the
leaf and the acorn received long, long
since, ere it had become hardened:by time
and the elements. If we trace back to itc
fountain the mighty torrent which fertili •
zed the land with its copious streams, or
sweeps over it with a devastating flood, we
shall find it dripping in crystal drops front
some mossy crevice among the distant
hills; so too the gentle feelings and affec
tions that enrich and adorn the heart, and
the mighty passions that sweep away all
the barriers of the soul and desolate socie
ty, may have sprung 'up in the infant bo
som in the sheltered retirement of home.
"I should have been an atheist," said
John Randolph "if it had not been for one

treated out west is scandalous. No re
spect whatever is paid to these unfortu

of the editor of the Kansas Canton Ball,
who describes in graphic style, peculiar
to himself, the reception lie met with from
the pro-slavery men after he had return

tlements :
''On our way to our sanctum we were
met by a delegation who began presen
ting us with vegetables, &c. One of
them thinking we were fond of game,
threw us what they no doubt supposed to
be a coon, but which we (being a judge
of game) thought savored like a cat of the
pole species. They placed us on a pole,
intending to do us honor, as it had been
formerly used as a flag-staff, and conduct
ed us through the town and then to the
outskirts, where they began stripping us.
When they had divested us of all but om
left stocking, they procured a bucket of
black paste, resembling tar, also a bag of
feathers. They then proceeded to make
a very warm suit for winter, feather dined
with paste. After they had all saluted us
Ly 4 ...itt ng nor nose, ("winch is the custom
ary salute between the pro and anti-sla
very men) they told us it was time to go
which, after receiving a concussion in the
rear, we did. We were surprised to hoar
when we went to the office that we had
been tared and feathered. The foreman
assisted by the devil. fell to work anti
picked us, we all the time experiencing
the sensations supposed to belong to that

as we live.

Irishman—and at one of the stations, a
couple of evidently well-bred and intelli

but seeing no vacant ones were about to
go into a back car—when Patrick rose
hastily and offered them his seat, with evi.
dent pleasure. 'But you have no seat
yourself, responded one of the young la
dies with a smile—hesitating, with true
politeness, as to accepting it. 'Nicer ye
mind that,' said the Hibernian, ‘yer wel
come to't ! I'd ride upon tee cow-catcher
till New York, any time, for a smile from
such jiattemanly ladies !' and he retreated
hastily into the next car, amid the cheers
