[From the New York Independent.] Duty of the Church and Ministry IN THE UNITED STATES, In Relation to the Iniquity of Slavery. qf Silence and Consequent Conni• vance. 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 against Oppression but been unsealed from the beginning, this iniquity would have emits nui have stood in a single State against an mein. muniention by the Church and Ministry. But when God has cointnatided His angels to loose the sea& and the thunders to ut ter their voices, there have been other an gels repressing them—conservative angels hoisting them in, and giving counsel that Christian expediency requires us to restrain them for tear of the agitations, disturbances tumults, earthquakes and lightnings shut might follow from them. See now the consequences of precuring peace, or deter ring a necessary conflict, by consesting rebuke sin ! The sin grows, and yes more and more afraid of it—afraid to .ay one word against it—till at length it bold ly challenges you as your master, and claims to be a sightsi institution ; and from beginning by a purchase'of your st- Nene, it rules over you and binds you hand and foot. The evil and the sin have grown to a magnitude that noise but God can cope with, and nothing but Ilis word can int.et. It has advanced steadily froth step to step, till now it is publicly enshrin ed and enthroned in the place of rigliteou.s tit,s, the tribunal of national justice. In this position, with these impious, unblush ing, daring claims, it is impossible to con 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 before the fire. Indeed, everything, in comparison with the word of God upon the conscience, is as unspun hemp In compa rison with a wrought cable ;'and that word is our last resort, our only refuge. It has never beets thoroughly tried, nor the con science roused by it, hut the pulley of si• lence and the reign of terror have preven ted it, and it is now fur the church and the 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 a vial as of the seventh angel must be poured forth into the air, and the great voice from the throne out of the temple of heaven. All the collected and concentra ted thunders in the word of God are need ed. Objections C onsidered. But there are objections urged against this course, and it is proper that we meet them. The fanaticism, hypocrisy, and folly of the outcry about political preaching have been sufficiently demonstrated alrea dy, and 1 proceed to consider the only ma terial argument urged against bringing the word of God to bear upon the sin of rlltt very. 11 is seitt that preaching about such " LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE."

C. BY DOW, JR. .D'Orville' sends me the following text, I will expatiate a little upon it this morning: What is Lute?-7i3 a fool's blind dream Ut stanething that tio'er existence had; It vanishes 'nuath the daylight's gleam— I And when it is gout, the fool goes mad 1 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 ence in the value of a kiss and a five dol lar gold piece, or that of is leg of mutton 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, Was love, still lore Here, toy brethren, you can easily see the madness protruding an inch or so Mark how the lellow sighs, like a furnace with that distrussful !"—how he takes on, 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 during the uncertain moonight 'of cour t . ship. They awake to a true, sober sense of their situations only in the broad glare of matrimony. And then, if they find the first flame extinguished, arid beyond the rower . 9f rekindling, it is no wonder they Thereupon the customer presented the following document : 'To whom it troy concern : We, the undersigned, having been acquainted spir itually with Mr.-, of -, consul, for many years, recommend him as perfectly reliable, and would not be afraid to trust hint to any amount.

Of this he felt assured by the spirit of prophecy within hint. The bookseller was not convinced Mr. Buchanan on Polygamy. Nlajor Jack Downing thus relates a con versation he had with Mr. Buchanan an Utah t'Old Back is a good deal riled with Brigham Young, who with his one hun dred wives, have created a rebellion— when the old Buck hasn't one that he can call his own.

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.

Dr The manner in which editors are treated out west is scandalous. No re spect whatever is paid to these unfortu nate beings. Only listen to the statement 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 ed from a four days visit in the back set 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 •insect' called 'goose.' We are .tow 'fea therless' but the tvr will stick to us as long as we live. P. S. The feathers are for sale at out office.
