Richmond Advocate—versus—Baptist Slaves.
In the city of Richmond, Vn., during the
past summer, iheni was n family of slave
holders, named WhiMnti, cruelly murdered
by John William ami wile, who are mem
ber of tho li.iptisl Church. From the fid
of their association with llm ISnntial. the
usually unrensonable nnd prejudiced south-
em hotspurs bnvo hastily concluded thnt
thero is something in liaplist preaching cal
culated to lunkc the slaves cut their innster'

mid lo such a pilch excited, that the three

meeting of their members Oct. '27, ailoiitcii
mi address to ihe public, und n snne of res
olution which ure found in the Richmond
Advocate of Nov. II, t?o2, signed by the
pastors nnd deacons of tin) thiuo Churches
of white ISnpiist.
1- rom their statement it appears thnt,
"The religion instruction of ihn colored
population of the city of Kiclimond ha, by
eiicuiustaiice not under ihe couliol of llio
present generation been devolved, in n great
measure, on llio liaplist denomination."
They say, however, deserving of svinnntbv
ond encouragement in their work.
We oro son v In Perceive, fiom mnnv in.

committed in Ibis city, by members of the
First African ibiptist Church, have awaken

1 hen follows n defenro of tho liaplist

lo let slip. . Ami lliu Kiclimond Advocate
rushes into ihe work Willi n double column
of eilitoriul. The main point i the small
vnltio nf slaves trained by liaplist preachers.
This lie reaches by a series of proposi
tions with which we propose to furnish our
reader. Tbeo propositions ure introduced
by the Ibllowiug statement.
"Bul wo know lhat the religious nrnfes..

have given rise lo a great ninny conjecture

colored population of lb city ia iolject by

II iplist Church.''
Then fol'nw uinn propositions, in sub.
at nice ua liillow. 1. The Baptist ennuot
Iih susperled of nny thing inimical to tho
right and interest of nlher. 8. They nre
honest in their conviction of the ngucmcnl

where the n'Mual moiietaty value nf u hhive

We have neiir heard of any such impute,
