Letter from Hitty Lane.
Dkaii Mil. I'ioi.e : Iv'u Iieenl my you're
idlers romly to listen to cvn ) body's com
plaints. It's rnilier luuil to hear one's trials
alone; on I'll ji st open my miinl luyim. I'd
hecrd j mi was mi inlhhd w In n I ft if- t came
to Samaria, m 1 tvoiilil'i.t even look lit your
' JSulu for ii long lime. ISimo by, one tiny ,
niter washin, thinks I, I'll nee. what there in
in thin ecu infidel paper. So I reads on, mid
on, about shivery, polities, teinperaiiee, the
church, ami what not, till I found your (.'leal
crime was hclciviu' in it higher law, than tho
fugitive slave law, mid tlntiht'ui Ihu infiili
liilily of mine of' our ministers, mid "godlike''
politicians. Now tho' I'm not very lnrned,
I've rend n pretty ennsidrablo lot iiliont lliesu
ere things. I'll loll how I got lime.
Vou pee, when I first got mat rii.il I thought
must liavo every thing rijjhi smart. I'd
heerd so iimcli fioin preachers, mid every
lioily, idiom the duties of wives mid mothers,
tho' I never ruiiM do till, nor nnlimly rise il
they'd had tin) nil eugth,w isilom.und patience
of nil llic Sampsons, Solomons, mid Jobs
that ever lived on nirtli. J however ilom; my
best, Iml llio' idlers fond of retulin, somehow
1 eonlil never find lime. At lust, thinks I,
wIhii'm tho ii: a il kni in no inneli edgin, mid
Imviii so mniiy lixins iiliont nil my tiling;
hem slit-bin, fuggnttiii, mnl ii tlioiisiuiil
things that men tidkit never think on ; linn's
one way they gil mure time tlinn wimin lo
improve their minds. If you'd ever done
sich work, ihu' taint likely yon ever did,
Is-iu's you're 11 mini, you'd know how I found
lime In lead nrter I'd shirked out of i.ll these
tie fiddle fuddles.
Well us I's say in, I'd read alinllt ihu higher
law, nnd tho like, mid did'nt suu no sin in ii
neither; llio' I think I should u Keen it ii'
llicro was nuy, net in I've rend the lliblti
clcuii through from (I'iuesis to Itevelalious.
lint I liuin't told you iiliont my trials yet.
Vou eo 1 don't like infidelity lo truth mid
common sense, nuy niore'ii ministers do to
their doctrine. As I tillers waul to keep up
Willi tin) times, which is mighty liurryiu
work luv.vo-tlays, I got reconciled to your
progressive infidelity rather sudden, niter 1
found out yon hclicved in (loin unto others
what you'd wish oile rs lo do to )ou; mid
lliat others meant wim'ui ami niggers, as well
us "lieo wliitu males." Hut hero couics.thn

T. 1. Taylor in Ihu Pittsburgh Christian Ad

" The strongest ground that can he reasou

"lor what greater monstrusiiy.iu morals can
be conceived than llio idea of a liciug of
infinite goodness poising the final destiny of
innumerable multitudes of immortal intelli
gence on tho result of ouo single experi

nppcara impossible that its parallel can he
found ill. the annals of thought." Now it
teems to mu that these ere sentiments mo
rulhur imforttialo coinin jest when ihu" scien
tific world," lis the Uiiowin ones call them,
selves, Bay lliat death, or tho dissolution of
nil organic bodies, whether uniuiid or vegita

ben the slaves of .Mahometans embrace

Not so do the pious slaveholders of thin

who was expelled from N, Carolina lor his
rebuke of n religion w hieh tolerates nnd
embraces such w it-kcilncs.i. What the pro
fessed love of souls, which these metl.odists
profess, may In; worth, others call jmlgo us
well as we. No wonder benevolent men
should be infidels, when such men as this
prominent member of the .Methodist church,
are numbered by thousands, among chi Li
We copy ihu following from the Trim
We sloynn :
Some of the slave States hnvo passed laws
making it a crime lor a colored man lo
preach, or even lor colored people lo iissem
iilo lor religious purposes, lo worship llic
(iotl of heaven, in less there are white per
sons present! Who rD Ibis is not ihe De
vil's work? According lo Ihu Apocalypse,
Ihe old serpent, and not the gospel is lo he
liaitietl. A caso ol tins Klml occurred in
(jiiilltird, North Carolina. Thomas I'M wards,
prominent member of the iM. K. Church,
ami lather of Rev. John Kdwartls, of tho
Virginia Coiilcieiieo, held as ins property a
man whom he called Order, a man of emi
nent piety. His youg master, Dan. i;., told
me, " Onler was (he most devoted man he
ever knew; thai ho had hoed corn with him
many n lime, when ho would kneel at every
hill mnl keep up wilh Iho rest of the hands.'1
J his ilevuletl man ol Coil h it called by
his heavenly .Master, lo go lo Africa, end
preach Jesus In bis benighted brethren ; but
llio hellish chain of slavery in the lientl-liko
grasp of nveriee, held him fiist.
I lo has been known lo rise from his ob
scure seal by his door, his l ieo suffused with
tears, mnl his physical being trembling under
must intense emotion ; ho has been know u to
make his way lo his muster, & in the presence
tho congregation and iuinister,liill upon his
knees mid beg him in the name of Coil, mnl
tho love of Ihe Saviour, lo let him go
that he would die if he ditl not. Hut did ho
him go? Ditl he say, Cod has work lor
you more important than filling my rollers
wilh shining dust? Co, and the blessings
heaven go with you. Nay, verily. Tho'
seats in heaven he vacant, anil gulden harpn !
siteiii, nun immortal natures tlesigueu lor
those blissl'ull abodes doomed to endless
tlenih. Though heaven should hu robed in
sackcloth, and the benevolent Jesus weep over
ruined souls ; icith me you must slut, for me
toil and die my slave,
ltut this is only ono case of a thousand
Header, do you lovo such n system ns this ?
Do you suppose Cod is its author? Do you
censure us for hating it? Do you halo it
yourself ? Will we not do all in our power

The following I'roni the Southern Press we
give as a specimen of the manner in which
II poition of the slaveholders talk oil this sub
ject. It is a favorite mid htaiiil .rd thought
with tho l'lc.-', that llio fuperioiity of iudi-
vulualn, races mid ualious colliers llio ligh.
lo enslave inleriois. I hat slavery is the
true relation between such. Thu only one
that can be productive ol'mutti d betielll.
Nations have hithei to I v common consent,
or n sense of obvious pmpi ii ty, thus rec. g
nizeil the moral distinctions of races and
coinuiiiiiiues ; mnl hate iisserted no! only an

Less than two millions out of an aggregate

Hut il llayli is recognized, Washington is
