PORTLAND, Me., March, 3d, '53.
Drar Marius : My last gave you some ac
count of my experience as a Theological stu
dent, and my mishaps as a candidate for the
ministry. My present purposo is, to mention
some incidents which happened while I remain
ed a sectarian preacher. But before going to
them, it may be interesting and instructive to
some of your readers, to go back a moment to
uh the cbur.h, and trace
t . j . . ... ,,
row of its attendant circumstances. It will II-
luitrate why some of ut are Comeouters.
It wss with trembling stop, that I entered
the, to me aacred portal, of the Orthodox Con-
: 1 ri 1. t'i. t-i . it ,,
gregational Church. The Church literally
sought me not I her. And when on a beauti
fui afternoon of a summer Sunday, I stood
forth before a great assembly, and bowed assent
to the Articles of tho Covenant, it was by far
the most aacred and.solemn hour of life. And
I entered the Church to labor. With me it
was for a work a warfare. A world hiy bo-
fore me, beclouded in ignorance, bemired in
sin, To do aoinothing for its renovstion was I
my highest hope my loftio.t aspiration.
The Held of my Brat humble endeavor, was
the Sunday School. I was appointed a teacher !
but declined, for the reason that I thought mors
could bo induced to join, if I invited them to
go with me a. fellow atudenta, than aa if I had
been a teacher. My success convinced me of
the wisdom of my choice. Nearly every mem-
bcr of the congregation, was a member of tho
Sunday School in good lime.
From the School proceeded a moat powerful
revival of religion J and a very large proportion
of leathers and scholars, became, members of ths
church. In that rcvivul, I toiled night and day.
In it, I witnessed tho results and triumphs for
which I had labored and prayed. From it sprang
a " Young Men's Education Society," that at
one time had eleven of its members preparing
for College, with a view to become Ministers
and Missionaries to tho heathen. I was made
the Brat president of tho Association ; and ita
honors I would not then have exchanged, for
the Presidency of the United States.
My dilligenee snd fidelity soon attracted the
notice of the churchca and ministers around
snd I began to be invited abroad to protracted
meeting.. Soon I found it waa talked about
among many, that I ahould bo a minister. It
waa often mentioned to inc. Nothing could
have been moro congenial to my own feeling.,
had I been where the subject could have been
presented in proper aeason. But I was now
too far advanced in life, to think of it for a mo
ment, though deeply enough did I sorrow over
1c. I felt euro the highest pott of Christian
usefulness, waa the pulpit, and often gased up
into it, with regrets and longings that no lan
guage could expreas.
But I labored with more dilligenee in my
humble sphere. I had novcr aeon any High
Schools or Academics, except at a distance t
and aa to reading, the Bible, " Pilgrims Prog,
rcae," an old abridgement of New England
History, and a ainglo volume of Gen. Wash
ington's Military Letters, written mostly at
Valley Forge, and during the winter his army
lay encamped there, were about all the books
we had, worthy of notice. The thrco Brat of
theae, I knew better than many of much greater
There were those, however, who continued
to urgo me forward towards tho ministry. I
however contented myself by setting two bro
then of mine on that course, who in time en
tered oollege. At length I yielded the point in
my own case ; and at twenty-six, with hands
calloused and irrecoverably bent, and shoulders
bowed with tho long snd hard labors of tho
farm, I entered upon a course of Theological
For three years snd a half, I applied myself
study with a zeal that well nigh ruined my
health. I becamo too ncrvoua to sleep j and
more than once, in the middle of the night,
havo risen and walked away two or three mile,
called up a friend, and remained with him till
morning. I fclt that my time for preparation
to preach the gospel was short, and must be
improved. It was with me, work for a world's
salvation, work for God, work for Eternity.
And I did it with my might.
Tinio flew swiftly on, and I was licensed, (as
they told me), to preach the gospel. My first
labors were in small parishes, snd selected some
what or. tho principle of the poor negro, whose
clerical master was deliberating one day which
of a number of Culls" he should accept.
Tho negro said, " suppose uiossa gu where least
money, and moat devil."
In onc of my fields, Intemperanco had been
for many yean, tho eriino of the church, and
the curse of tho town. Indeed, it had become
so common, evon among prominent church
members, ss to no longer excito surprise, as an
incident will show.
I wus one day walking with a young man,
(not of tho church, but fur too good for such
associution), and he asked me what I intended
to havo done with ono of tho members whom
he named. Why said I, what ails him t Well,
" I will tell you," he replied." "lit dott twear
moit awfully tomelimes, and aluayi vhen fit i
druttkl" What could I answer) It was but
too true. Nor was this case by any means a
solitary one. Intemperance I then saw, had
becomo so common, that it alone was not men
tioncd in a profcaaor of religion. It waa the
" awful swearing" only that was thought of.
My course was plain. Our own sins, and
not those of tho Uerods and Pilatos of old, were
the theme of my preaching, until I was driven
out of the town.
Pardon mi if I have grown tedious. I wss
wishing to show why I am what I am. Had
the Church and Ministry labored as it was my
aim to labor, with the little talent given to me,
it sesms as though different results might have
been secured by their efforts. They would not

There lived a few weeks ago in tho neigh
boring state of Maryland, a man who in his
physical appearance, commanded the attention
of all who aaw him. Tall and robust, with
rather an imposing faco and head, gentlemanly
in his manners, and withall well dressed, ho
was one to be noticed. And noticed ho hod
been for God hod converted hia aoul, and hie
brethren had ordained him to tho work of the
christian ministry. Ho had received a call
from church in Fredcricktown, and had been
'"'tailed aa pastor. This free American citizen
thia disciple of Jcaus this minister of the
church, had a wife whom ho tenderly loved
loved above all earthly price, of whom had
been born eight sons and daughters. But
' though they called him Father, another claimed
them as his though that woman called tho
father of her childran, husband, sho was the
property of another, and subject to all the
vicissitudes of property.
The anxious husband and father, felt their
hazardous condition, and resolved to free them
by purchase j aye he resolved to purchaao hia
own wifo and children ! How much he payed
towards the aunt demanded, I cannot tell. But
like a leiii man, ho determined to ttco with
them from tho prison house, at all risks. Ar
rangements wero made for.thie end. The fam
ily finally reached the neighborhood of Bedford
in the alave atata of Pcnn., where In conae
quence of information having been sent by one
Jackson, a colored Wcslcyau wretch, they
wcro overtaken after suffering horribly from
the cold snd exposure. They wero frost-bitten
and lame. But amid cold and pain, they were
dragged to Cumberland Jail, and advertised for
sale. On boy escaped, and is ssfo nestled
under the mane of the old Lion. Tho father
escaped the dutches of tho law, which would
consign him to a felons jail for life, for daring
to attempt to secure, tho happiness of his own
family, snd aitivcd at Pittsburgh, where tho
friends raised money snd sent an agont to
Cumbcrlund, hoping the family might bo pur
chased at a low rule for tho husband and luthcr.
Meantime it was thought unsafe for Mr. Mitch
ell to remain under tho jurisdiction of Gov.
Bigler, tho miserable tool of tho slave power.
So he came on to Ohio, awaiting intelligence
from the agent sent to Cumberland. Word
came at last. Tho agent waa too late. The
family had been sold to the Orleans tradcra for
four thouaand dollars, and hurried into tho
abyss of a southern plantation, tbero to suffer
under tho lash and sun, for daring to love lib
erty. Men, if your hearts are not mado of
Grunite, think of it. Tho family: a wifo and
seven children of a man, a free man, an
lie driven from tho land of hia birth, from the
christian associations, from tho Hock he fed
with the word of life, to tho northern climo
of another government. Could you hear the
wails of that atricken wifo, the cries of that
bereaved and tormented family, could you aco
the heavinga of that manly bosom, and above
all could you feel the intensity of their souls'
agony, you would stay, surely you would stay,
long enough from your efforts to prove aboli
tionists intMcl, te call down tho curses of tho
Almighty upon the wretches, who causo such
sorrow, snd perpetrate such deeds as these.
As I stood snd looked at that man in his
sorrow, I told him could not tell how he en
dured it. His answer was that Christ taught
ua to pray for those that doapltcfully used us.'
I told him 1 could bear any thing myself, but
when it came to deeds so damnable, my prayer
was that God would gather tho thunderbolts
of the universe and hurl them with almighty
vengeance into the hoarts of such soulless
bloody wretches. It may bo wrong, but I feel
if I had tho power ahould do it. May uni
