QUAKERISM IN INDIANA.

and intemperance, then do they hear such tcotiuio
iy. In Indiana tho mass of them voted for Taj lor,
and in Way no Co. they wcro warm for Samuel Par

Fugitive Slave Law, and went ns far us tho Viiio.i
Safoty Committee in his devotion to the Union nnd

liith Art. of our now eoiisiilulion received a large
majority about as large ns in any county in the
Stato. Quaker, opposition to that inhuman enact
ment was not known in Indiana, If they had any,
they kept it to themselves.
One of their fcnmlu preachers, by tho name ol
Clark, not long since, was noticing a paper that had
formerly, when she had know., it, been all whig,
hut had chungod to ho mostly a temperance pupor.
Mie deprecated tho change frcin whiggery to "teui

Right bore at Economy, tho church hugs in full
membership, umlealt triti, a regular liquor 'seller.
Out tho worUllintJt Und him $110 for his pious abom
inations. This meek nnd lowly (?) society, some
months ago, refused to let Thomas K rosier of Iowa,
an orthodox preacher, preach in thoirsiVugoguc.
The only reason they could have for so doing was,
without doubt, that he is an abolitionist.
As lor the Indiana yearly meetings of both or
ders, they aro ever faithful in heaping abuse nnd
falsehood on nil reforms und reformers. Will some
one lot tho world know whut good tho sects are do
ing T No, not yet. Doing good is not yet popular.
As yet they want the world to know that humanilij I
is no Dart of their creed. When auti-slavcrv. teni-
perouec, icaco, and all Iho oilier lungiblo move
ments against the evils of society bocoino popular,
then Quakerism, Methodism, and ull other .'
will be construud to have humanity for their basis.
The churches then will claim to buvo doiio the

Usa tho term Infidel because it is tho term applied
to all workers of righteousness, by religionists. 1
rare not what niimo reformers go by, so thcie is an
understanding, and as infidelity new means human
ity, I accept the appellation. Christianity, as de
fined by tho American Church, means all that is
ruinous and crushing to man ; and Infidelity, as
defined by the same tribuuul, means practical good
Christianity sets ifp sects, governments, days and
books above man, ami sacrifices him to sustain
them. Infidelity exalts man alrove books, orgauix"
ations, days aud all other things on curth, and w ill
labor to overthrow every thing, no matter how sacred
it may lie held, w hich hinders tho full, harmonious
development and progression of all men and all
The name Christianity is held sacred and veuor
able by the mas of the Amoricuu people, nnd re
formers held on to the term for a long time, urging
that Christianity consisted in doing good.
But the almighty church overruled us, and decid
ed war, slavery, tho gallows, and other enormities
ito accord with Christianity, and tho nation respon
She then searched the w hole vocabulary of the
English language to find the most loathsome, hated
word to designate those who show their faith by
their works, and Infidel was the one sho choso.
The name Infidel does not fit those it is applied
to. Its meaning will have to bo changed before it
will represent thorn fairly. The term Christian
would suit bettor, for they imitate the ciamplo ol
.Christ in going about doing good, while those who
bear the name christian do not merit it, for tho
most of them reject good works as being no part of
their religion. Indeed, the church, as a general
thing, does not seem interested in having the world
any bettertl.au it is. Saying nothing about the
indifference of the pulpit aud of the dillbrciit evan
gelical assemblies towurds the huiniiiiitiiry move
ments of the day. Do nothing is a fundamental
principle in the evangelical creed. The fifth art.
of the oreed, put forth by the World's Evangelical
Alliance, declares that the siuuer it justified by
tsith mlon. The Methodist discipline says the
same. Martin Luther left the book of Juines out
f bit translation of the Bible, because it contra
4otd Paul, and demanded works to prove faith.

REMARKABLE FAITH IN PROVIDENCE.
The Hartford Religious Herald, commenting up
on tho resolutions of tho Synod of Now York mid
Now Jersey, which we published last week, hits
them off finely, as follows:
At tho recent meeting of tho New School Synod
of New York and New Jersey, tho subject ol sla
very came up for discussion ; and a very proper
subject it w as, seeing that a large portion of the
New School Proshyteriun church are involved in
the sin of sluvuholding. After prolonged del ale
and no small excitement, and w hen some half a
doien resolutions had been ottered und proved un
satisfactory, a vote was nually passed, Uoclaring
that tho wholo subject wus submitted tu Divino
Providence, and ought not to be horeafter agitated
iu any wny iu the .judicatories of tho church! Did
our readois ever meet with so submissive a spirit
und such a note-worthy mnuifestaiiti. of confidence

what was wise and right with relurenco to slavery,
and that in respect lo lime, measures and instru
mentalities, that they wore willing to trust it w hol
ly to him wiihout further interltuence on choir
o&rt ! Indeed they woro anxious that non of their
co-religlonisU should disturb the operation of i'ro-
viuODce, ny untimely or unwise agiiuuon, sum
therefor frowned au awful frown upon all disposed
to tntcfa impious measure. Truly we ttnd amaied

Seeking for strength in thy goodness nnd power.
Asking our aid from the wisdom alrove
Asking our uio rro, ci. a ,.f love

Kurucstly, hopefully, turn w e to theo.
Is not o.mh beautiful is not earth bright,
Teeming with usefulness beaming wilh light?
Hath not kind nature a harmony given,
Slumped ull things with the impress of Heaven?
Still upward and onward, unceasing to move,
And are w a not links iu this grand chain of love ?
Whence comet h this sorrow, then, whence comes
tho caro ?
Why all this wailing these cries of dospuir?
What makes (he discord what makes the mar ?
Mill, is ihe guilty one ifimi makes tlie jur.
Sold is our birthright, fur pension or pelf
Sold to tho brotliCih.od lost to ourself.
Fettered ny appetite, passion und crime,
Serving tho idol raised up by old time
Dialling w ill, shackles both Isjtly and mind,
That thou, in thy wis .tun, luadu lice ns tho wind.

Wilt thou m.t sullen ail cold heart, of steel ?
Wilt thou hot leach us to lovo and to iccl T
Teach thou our rulers tho right from tho wrong,
Teach them Iho weak has a claim on the strong ;
; Lend them all forth tu tho buttle of might,
Armed with the weapons of justice und right.
' To conquer old error, oppression and ruth,
j And rear on their ruins tho temple of truth
I Nor faint in their woik till tho labor is done,
j And tho shout goes to huuveii of victory won.
God of tho sufloring ones God of tho frco,
Karnesily, liopclully turn we to thee;
Lead thou our people lo sco ihe right way
