with diving things as it was a settled fact that
slavery was numbered among tho Divine ins

however, had the courage to say that "it was
a shamo to expel a teacher on such a churge,
and that they all knew ho had written nothing
but tho truth."
Wc quote the following additional particulars
from tho letter of our correspondent:
I o After many animatcd.pecccl.es being made,
and said, ' in regard to mobing, it could not be
dmo in Memphis that ho found no fault with
tho accused thut what ho had written was
truth-and that ho himself was shocked at tho
practice of slave dealing, and thought it tho
lowest of all human employments." Finally
they agreed that tho accused might speak fir

did. But tho majority warmly opposed his
views, and spoko of mobing, whilo a respect
aponsibility ablo minority sustained him. This brought
tho two purtics into a warm dispute on tho
subject of slavery, and the young man left them
quarreling, and sought employment and sccuri

More Ministerial Experience, &c.
CONCORD, N. H. March 29, '53.
Dr.AB Mahivs i I remember sermon that
one of my classmate wrote and delivered while
we were yet students, from the Text, 'Take us
the foxos, the little foxos, that spoil the vines."
For an apprentice, it wa a well-built sermon.
The samo man ia now, and for some year has
been the pastor of one of the largest churches in
one of our New England cities. But ho has done
"taking tho foxes," though they aro making
sad havoc among the vines. They aro now, to
him, Intcrdictod game.
I was so well pleased with tho sermon, that
I went immediately into tho preparation of one
from tho samo text. And among tho "little
f.'xcs," I enumerated Tobacco, tho frightful uso
of which seemed to me a hindrance to the prev
alence nf a pure piety. But the sermon never
was delivered. For before a convenient op
portunity came, I had discovered that tobacco
was no 'tilde Fox," but a slimy, loathsome
s.ioke, as poison in his tooth, as ha was hateful
in his touch and far better symbolised by the
seven headed dragon in tho vision of Fatmos,
that pucit out of his salivated multi-mouths, a
flood, " to destroy tho woman and her child."
it that sermon was so much labor lost,
I went myself to the Thoologlcal Seminary
with mouth and pockets full of tobsoco. My
father and my minister wcro both groat smo
kers ; nml never to my youthful fancies, did
religion appear more lovely, than when over
(licit pipes and mug of cider, (our cellar was
famed for its cider), they sat beforo our huge
kitchen Arc, and held solemn discourse upon
its doctrines and it mysteries. Mysteries,
which, as llicy said, the natural man could not
The hidden things of the pipe and mug.wcre
however, revealed to me quite early ( and to the
sacraments r.f cider and smoking, I came, liter
ally, " In tho days of my youth." Indoed thero
was a pretty goncral millonnium at that time,
in respect to tho apread and practice of these
two "Artii.li of Faith," all over the country.
Tho Temperance Heresy, however, "crept
Into houses" aftcrwtrds, and " led captive msny
silly women," and men, too, myself with tho
rest, so fur as tho cider was coneorncd. But
not so with tohacoo. Upon that, there was
wonderful perseverance of the Ssints. And
went into tho study of Divinity, with checks
puffed out w ith tho sickening wadding, a with
iho mumps. So did icveral other.
But, (without moro trifling), my purpose
was a sacred one. My aspiration to the minis
try, was nf the holiest character. Accordingly
I abandoned tobacco as a part of the sacriQco to
ha laid upju tho altar of temperance. So,
however, did not all my fellow students. Nor
have they yet. Neither is it a matter nf won
der. Vot tho very first pulpit I cntcrod to
preach, had a spit box in it as large as the Bi
ble and hymn book both J and literally hoaped
up like a muck wagon, with exhausted quids.
And that sido of the pulpit, was completely
frescoed with tho spray of the spittoon, or from
tha fountain itielf, from whence issued the
I was sometimes sent for to assist a brother
minister in a Hcvival. At our Enquiry Meet
ings, as they were called, wo usod to converse
with each one scperstcly, and in an under tone,
so as not to be heard by the nearest person pres
ent. S.imo nf the Old Ministers made this, in
efToet, a real "Auricular Confession."
Now could you have seen what I have seen,
w hen I thrust my face into that of some old,
vctoran tobacco chewcr, to whisper with him a
few words nn tho slato of his mind and heart,
you would have felt that tho work of purifica
tion should begin much nearer tho aurfuce.-
Tlio blood of wholo prairies of bullocks, could
not cleanse such unclcanncss. When ho would
open his mouth to answer my questions, you
can ham no idea what a cavern yawned before
me. Tho waters of Avcrnus weropuro as Cos
talian fountains, compared with tho submersion
I have seen in many a mouth, at auch a time.
Tho billows would bo surging up against a
shoro of snagged teeth, or toothless gums,on ci
ther side. As you looked inward and onward,
you would discover in the distance, a hugo
quid, lifting a hemisphere of itself above tho
surface, liko a floating island. The sight, and
ono inhalation of the poor sinner's breath, if you
dared to breath, soon mado you forget that you
had asked aftor tho stato of his soul.
I havo witnessed all this and more, not fit to
bo told. And I huve seen old ministers con
ducting these conversations, with their own
mouths in just such conditions. And moro than
that ; when I ventured to allude to the subject
in publio meetings, they hsve sharply rebuked
me, for tu.ningatide from tho truth of tho gos
pel, to what at best, they said, was only mak
ing clean the outside of the cup and tho plat
tor." In oneot my parishes, I had a venerublo dea
con, who in religioua seal against other sects,
and sinners in general, might have furnished
tho Scottish poet a thomo for anothor " Holie
Willie." One day, at a conference in the
church, I asked him to offer tho concluding
prayer. Whatever might have been in hia heart,
it waa soon opparant what was in his mouth.
Ho stepped forward and leaned hia hands up
on the bock of tho next pew. At the end of
every period he mado, (and they were not long),
ho spirted a great mouthful of tho pure extract
ovor on to tho floor of the pew before him,
which fell with a splash, that in the silence,
echoed through all tho arches and recesses of
the church. My closing benediction wsa to
follow but for that lime, I dispensed with it.
You may think what you please, but auch sen
sation I never knew beforo. It wa the first
and the last time that deacon ever prayed,
by icy request or invitation. And when after
wards, complaints were urged against me, one
nf them came from him in words something
like these We got Tin here to preach the
