THE SfKMOBIIS OF TWKMTT YIABS AGO.
The world moves on; the years roll slowly by;
Youth comes of age ; the aged decay and die ;
Mew faces crowd the ever-bustling scene,
And tell to us what we ourselves have been :
Our oldest friends are wrinkled, bald, and gray,
And we. advancing, arrow as old as they :
let here to-night our thoughts will backward flow,
And memories rise oi twenty years gui

Her noble head, the pride of rolling years,
Of glory settling on her peaoelul brow,

What memories all my faculties enthral,
What visions of that careless, motley crew

Before my nrtnd'oome'ffittlnfr to aod-fro,
Just as they wed to twenty jersco.
Where are they now? Why some have rtsei nigh,
Aiming thetr arrows ever at the sky.
Borne were too wayward, and have iroie as'.rsy;
Some Bold the even tenor of their wa-y;
Some are recording an immortal name
With gilded tetter on the scroll of fame;
Borne have departed benoe and laid them low,
And some remain from twenty years ago.
Among the dead the last lamented one
Whom Ood call d home waa Walter W Ullamsin.
Firm at his post, a soldier in the cause.
Nor aae nor reputation bade him nans :

Friend to the aged, Mentor to the. youth,

Nineteenth Yearly Meeting at Lougwood,
Chester County "Testimony" on Hell
glon and Discussion.
Hamekton, Chester co., Fa. June 8. This
morning, at the Longwood Meeting House,
one mile distant from this place, was held
the nineteenth yearly meeting of the Pro
vine bociety of Progressive Friends was
founded in the year 1853, having originated
in a division among the original Friends or
Quakers upon the abolition and other reform
questions. The distinctive tenets of
the body, comprising among its mem
bers many of the leading minds of the
country, are an entire ignoring of creeds and
systems of theology. It concerns itself with
tbe practical things of life, with the reforms
of every sort, both in the political and sooial
fabrio, the questions upon which are dis
cussed from Sunday to Sunday in the local
meetings, and from year to year in the gene
ral meetings, at which time also "testimo
nies, or the formulations of the principles of
the body are presented, and adopted as the
expression of its opinions.
The morning's session commenced at 11
o'clock, Oliver Johnson, chief clerk, presid
ing. According to appointment, tne Itev. John
W. Chadwick, pastor of the Second Unita
rian Church of Brooklyn, read a lengthy
paper upon "the life and character of Theo
dore Parker." This has been delivered upon
a previous occasion, and so an abstract of it
is, on that account, not necessary. It was
one of the most eloquent eulogies which we
have ever heard, and was listened to with the
profonndest attention. The subjeot of the
paper formed the topio or tne aiternoon s
discussion, which proved very interesting and
William uoya uarrisonsaia tnat ne aia
not know whether there were any in the audi
ence who would be shocked at the eulogy of
the great man, Theodore Parker. Few ap
preciate the grandeur and magnificence of
thinking for oneself. Theodore Parker was
an infidel, was be ? Jesus of Nazareth was
so railed, and it was even said "he has a
devil." Jesus went about doing good, and
Theodore Parker did the same. Jesus bore
tbe shock of imposition without fear, and so
did Parker. I spoke of courage in express
ing one's thoughts freely, and meant this to
apply to Christianity. It is an age of con
formity, we have leit Home, and yet we
repudiate the doctrine that we adopted when
we left her.
Every man must be as free to think as I
am, and when the time for this comes, there
will be no persecution, no proscription. We
find in history times of new departure. That
whieh Is heresy springs np, grows, and de
feats the dogma at last, in spite of all.
Tbe distinguished speaker then eulogized
Parker as a rare man among men, a champion
for the liberties of the world. He was no
dogmatist, but btrove to enforce the apostolic
rule, "Let no man judge you in meat or in
drink. No man labored more abundantly
and industriously on the politioal reforms of
He made himself famous and infamous at
an early day by the espousing of the oaase of
Abolition. I differed from him in the fact
that he took part in the formation of the Free
Soil party. I could support no party which
countenanced a constitution whioh had
slavery in it as a provision. Theodore Par
ker was Intensely patriotic a thorough
American yet his love of law never made
him lose sight of the principle of the right
of revolution. although we nave so
much light, there ia still much to learn and
to contend for. And, meanwhile, let us
honor those who suffered for righteousness'
The speaker then related some interesting
anecdotes in relation to Parker's dealings
with the poor and needy and sorrowful.
The Business Committee, threogn their
chairman, William Lloyd Garrison, presented
the following testimony on religion;
At a time when tne reliKtous world is
undergoing the most important chances,
and when the hearts oi many people are
failing them for fear lest these changes
bhould weaken the bold or religion itself upon
the human soul, we rejoice to believe that
no such danger is pon us, but that, instead,
the cause ol true religion was never so pros.
perous as at the present time. For we recog
nize ana amrm mat true rengion uoas not
consist in any par tic alar belief about God or
Jesus or the Bible or the Church; not in any
particular form of worship, but in luve to
God and man: a tender trust in our infinite
Protector; a strong desire and will to wake
our own lives pure and true, and, in so far as
we can. to do away with error ana injustice,
ai.d advance the cause of truth and right upon
William Lloyd Garrison, referring to
creeds, contended anew that they were use
less, and worse than useless in judging a
man's character. Did the creeds in the day
of slavery atand against alavery ? Did they
not keen on the aide of Dower r The creeds
were all found wanting, and thoue who were
pro-slavery oraMitl-alavery were no in spite of
their creeds, for they espoused these views
when their creeds were direotly agnlnst
tbem. A man cannot borrow money on his
creed. He muRt give security, as all others.
So these formulated principles do not affect
tbe shrewd judgment of mankind. In oppo
sition to certain sentiments advanced, he
said: "I recognize an infinite power and I
call Him God, and I worship Him and love
Him more than any human being. But a
proper trial-test of love to God is love to
Tbe difioussion was continued at Rome
length, and engaged in by several speakers.
The sentiments expressed, however, were of
the same character, and generally in support
of tbe testimony.
The testimony was then put to the vote
and adopted with great unanimity. The con
vention then adjourned.
