It takes ft pro-slnvory priest who has onco been
professed abolitionist, to cxcell nil others in viru
lence and falsehood. An ampin illtiHtrntion will
be fuund in the following review by Dr. Samuel
II. Cox, of the slavery question in the General As
scinby of the New School Prcsbytorinn Clmrcli.
From the Christian Observer.
SLAVERY QTESTION IN THE GENERAL
Aftor It irm neon that notion wns inevitnbln, our'
Coinmitte thought thitt tlm wisest nnd the most
proper way was to refor nil the document to a spo-
c'al committer, ar.d this wns ndoi ltd I y tho hune.
For this no apology is needeil. Wo nro not ohli-,
Rated to bo infnllildo; nnd noting honorably, and
as wisely and an generously as o knew how, wo
are not very remorseful ; even if tho event prove
that n tnnre errrllenl vmj should have been adopted
nbout whiuh I have yet no conviction.
1 now proceed to characterize the docuincutN,
generally, with only one exception.
1. The idea of "sin jierse" more or less pervaded
the whole of them ; Unit is, that it is a Hin in its
own n at nro, for tho relation of master nnd slave
according to law to exist, in nil circunistnnces.
This fanatical lie, thin jcsuiticnl absurdity, this'
gross political blunder, ns I have raid, peivadcd
und elmrncteri.ed them nil, though in forms nnd
degrees nioro or Ic.m various, ns more or less strung
nun uense, moro or less express nml olmoiis.
And this error is the liroton-iisemlos nml ilin i,!r .1
proto-plnst of nil tho fntinlicol, nnd tho impructic-j
able, nnd the infidel Agitation in our country. Jt
is tho fiend w ith the face of nn nngol, that pervert
thousands in this nntion ; owing his swny to his
seraphic countenance, and even infatuating iiiiinv'
of the ministers of Christ ; like a certain allied
personage in the apocalypse, w hose tail drew the
thinl part of tho stars of Heaven, nnd did oast!
them to the earth. If a man will bo such a k'hii-
iii.-i.Mi, lt neeius 10 me, mar, Willi the lliblo open
before him, he deserves rebuko more than nrgu
mcnt, for his stupid perversity ; even if he is in
other things a sound nnd good Minister of the
Gospel, lint such ministers, I know, exist among
ns, incorrigible and often reckless; with whom the
inspired adago that WisnoM is ritoi-iT.iiir.F. to di
rect, wisdom not zeal and partisan impulse, sci
ence -not steam for the guiding radiation of tho
good ship of tho Church, is derided, spurned nwnv
from them, nnd treated ns nn obsolete nnd exploded
dogma in this famous nge of light nnd progress.
In reference to this error, nnd in illustration of
its folly nnd its falsehood, I proprso to snv more,
in the treatment of tho subject, before I "close.
If, indeed, I ought to ),0' forbearing, with mv
brethren especially, who hold it, on the ground
that I was onco myrelf infected with it, nnd whic h
OWUi ''t humiliation and regret, for terily
thought IuuijIU to do many ihiuis contrary to what
I know now to bo right, lot it i0 remembered, that
vory pocuhar circumstances and Vo-y peculiar in
fluences, indu ed it: that I l,d not then examined
tho sulyoct, or understood it, as I now do ; that I
-was neither nieorrigible, nor long, in tho halluci
nation j that I loft it ns soon as, prnvinq nil thinin,
1 found it was not good, and so not to bo held fit
or held at all ; and that in this rectification, the
proximate cause, was merely tho calm perusnl of
tho Aow Icstument, and tho Old Testament, too;
npplying tho golden ru!0, "hy their fruits you shall
know thorn, to such knnves. idiarisnic, and faith
less as wcro in Hostnn d vicinity, tho chief Sab-bath-breaking,
Cod-defying, leaders of t,9 proposed nntional ogi
tution. Men who derided the Constitution and the
laws ot thoir country; 1,0 eonfessodlv would
oonor destroy Krorioua Union, by far than
upport and prcdonR a blessed jurisdiction;
whose actions and whoso measures are almut as
disorganizing, and n, ungodly, ns they well can bo;
whose Christianity is full of fundnincntul heresy
nod practical corruption j to say nothing more of
heir fanatical ill-manners and reckless auducity.
Those are not the men to awe or govern, or load
tho Church and tho Ministors of Godl Farthest
from them is best. There nro nn worse enemies
of all righteousness, no worse traitors, no worse
counselors, no worso foes to tho slaves, in tho
world, than they ; thoso very prime ministers of
tho abolition enterprise; those oxnltcd hypocrites
nnd infidels, forever aping tho glories of philan
thropy nnd piety. Wo might as well have "chnr-
ity" fur Tom 1'a'ine. and Joo Smith, and l'ius Ninth
as for them ; and if good men nnd ministers would
roligiously consider thoir ways, in regard to them,
I am suro they would so rom'e out from them and
be icjxratt, as God's people, ns no more, by their
-example and their sanction, to uphold so carious
an enterprise so bad a cause I
2. As ono error loads to another a solf-propa-gating
brood I Son 'natural ennsequeneo to the
foolery of tin ntr doctrine, is that the bare fact
of one's complication with slavery is just causo of
discipline; ana that it must ne so ratea, and
troatcd by tho judicatories of tho church.
And this is prima facie evidonro of crimo !
3. There must be "progross" in all our ecelesi
tastical action. This looks to measures ulterior,
and eventually or soon, to exscinding, at retail
if noi by wholesale in reference to all the Presby
teries and the churches south of Mason's and Dix
on'a line, and of the Ohio river. This is the
'horrid and the crowning matter of those scnti
iments and thoir aims.
These throe characteristics show not only tho
real animus of thoso abominable dooumcnts, but
they are too justly the exponents of all our own
infected districts and compromised presbyteries.
I give the facts and tho stato of the matter, as it
appeared to mo then, and as it appears tn mo now;
3is with great conviction I write it, that it may bo
known ; and in tho name of God, I denounce the
folly, and tho delusion, and tho malignity, of id
gtnui Mum, as contrary to his word, and doctrine
and his cause, and comforting mainly to the devil
and hit angels.
Yesl this trio sin jxr r ; ecclesiastical discip
line for it: and "progross" in the matter of agita
tion, progress every yoar, shows why I was sick at
heart, as I road thoso short-sightod documents,
written by pious dunces, for tho main part ; so
sinoero, so devoted, such martyrs, and such fanat
ics, that reason and sorinturo wore as it wero as
certained by them, that the u-ord of truth ami
soberness were no longer propor for the church nnd
the ministry of God, If there is a right nnd i
wrong Way, in tho matter, it is tho former only
that they always lose, tho Inttcr tbnt they constant
ly prefered ; and as we have remonstrated till we
are tired and without hope, wo now robuke them
openly, "nnd withstand them to tho face, because
they are to bo blamed ;" whilo tho mischief they
have already dono to tho church and the country,
is greater than either they or we can ever we
four correct, We can endure no man, by special
pleading nnd temporising, to extenuate whnt thoy
did nt the Assembly. All that, is but part of the

Mr. Washburn of Maine, mndo a speech a fow

lays ago on tlio solijoctot annexation nt tlio Snml-
wich Islands. Mr. W. professed himself opposed
to annexation on the popular fillibustering princi-
tho measure. From his speech we extract the fol
lowing facts relative to tho Islands and their in
habitants. Tho climate, though warm, is Cqtinhlo and salu
brious. "Tho heaven's breath smells wooingly"
through tho year, tho mean temperature being
about seventy-five degrees, and the general rnnge
for tho yenr from seventy to eighty. The soil is
rich in thoso parts of tho islunds which have long
been freo from volcanic eruptions. Their produc
tions and capabilities nro very great; nnd with the
spur nnd iffreetion of Anglo-Aniericnn enterprise,
tho benefits of American trade and protection, they
would be eipuil to those of any conntry, althoiiL'h

prices must be such as to warrant its production in
large quantities, for which the eojl Bud climate are
very favorable Moro tlatu ten years ago Messrs.
Ludd &. Co. raised an average of a tin and a balf
to the acre, a rnto nt w hich one thousand tqunre
miles would yield nearly a million tons, or four
times the total supply of tho I'uitcd Kingdom of
Great lli itaiu nnd Ireland.
Sir George Simpson was of opinion that the isl
amis might "supply with sugar nearly all the coasts
of both continents above their own latitude, Cali
fornia, Oregon, tho Russian settlements, both in
Asia ami America, and ultimately Japan;" and ho
continues, "should they bo secured in this trade,
they could hardly bo dislodged from it by nny rival
so long ns they enjoy tho iidvnntiigo of being the
grent house of call both in tho length nnd breadth
of tho Pacific Ocean." The most reliable accounts'
since received confirm his opinions as to tho value
and prouiiso of this crop. It is not known that our
Into Commissioner lion. Luther Severance hns
uever failed to urgo its importance upon our Gov
ernment nnd peoplo, nnd when his c aution, sound
ness of judgment, and means of information are
considered, this fact spooks with great foreo for tho
present and possiblo magnitude of this interest.
I'hc markets which thoso islands would occupy nre
so remote from our sugar fields on this sido of the
continent, as to prccludo injurious competition.
Silk may bo cultivated to ndva itage in certain
sheltered localities, and is believed to havo oven
fewer obstacles to surmount than sugar. It yields
six crops in the year, nnd may be produced at rates
which will allow it to bo sold at remunerating prices
in tho United States.
Coffee, said to bo equal to Mochn, is among tho
products of tho islands that may be cultivated suc
cessfully, and raised iu sufficient abundance to be
sent with advuntago to almost any part of the
Kukui oil is extracted from tho nuts of the ku
kui or light tree, nnd though inferior to linseed, is
yot so much cheaper, that it finds nn extensive
market in Lima, and has been sent with profit to
the United States.
Salt is obtained in a crystnlliuo form from tho
surfuce of a small lake about four miles to the
west of Honolulu. The supply seems to be inex
haustible. I' pon the uplands of some of the islands pota
toes and wheat grow with great luxuriance, and,
besides supplying the doinestio consumption and
the shipping, might be raised for exportation.
Tho indii.'O pinnt, savs a lato number of tho Poly
nesian, " thrives well at the islands, in nil moist
situations, and grows spontaneously wherovor it
onco gets rooted. In fact, from a singlo plant, it
sprcuds with great rapidity, covering iu a few
years many contiguous acres, and rooting out
everything elso, even tho thick sod of a heavy

Tho moro Yaluablo animals which thrive in Hie
islands are cattle, horses, goats, hogs, and, in tho
mountains, sheep. Fish are not so abundant as
around many other islands. They huvo, huw ovcr,
several varieties, und tho inhabitants procuro a tol.
"In common with other islnnds of tho Pacific,"
says Mr. Ellis, "thoy are entirely free from every

In reference fo the trado of tho Islands, their
felicity of position in respect to commerce, and
their importance us a depot nnd house of cull,
(almost incalculable to tho United States, since the
possession of California and tho opening up of a
new traffic between America and Asia,) 1 cannot do
better than to read some extracts from nu authority
to which I have before mndo reference. The stnto
monts nnd opinions of Sir George Simpson, from
his intelligence and apparent candor, aro entitled
to great weight, and aro generally sustained in
important particulars by Ellis, Janes, Walpolo,
Wilkes, and the moro reliable oncycloptcdias wliivli
I have consulted, ns woll as by Amorican residents

Charles Lenox Remond, of Salem, Mass., deliv
ered tho fourth lecturo of the course of the New
lork Anti-Mavory Society, at the lirondway lab-
jernnclo, on l uesitay evening, tue oa inst.
As a fow Introductory and more general remarks,
tlio lecturer laid down the proposition that if any
indignity whatever was permitted to any portion of
tho community the wholo must suffer. Alio preju-
dice of raco against rnco was referred to, such as
tho English for tho From h, the Irish for tho Eng
H"h, and of Americans, in turn, to Irishmen. As
to the latter, ho had never permitted it to exist in

with tho preiiidieo onanist his own race. In the
.slato of Pennsylvania nlono there was n colored
population of Irom 3(,MJ0 to Jll,f)(HI, nnd yet all
these nro disfranchised. The patriotism of colored
(men in days when it cost something to be patriotic
