Essex, April2lth, 1S39.
Dear Brother : The ways of God are indeed
unsearchable and his counsels past finding out.
This truth is this morning impressively felt by
" Mr. Clay insists that the slaveholder has
right of full compensation from those who call on
him to surrender his slaves. 1 utterly deny sue
a right in a man who surrenders what is not hi
own. I cheerfully acknowledge however, that
whilst in strict justice, the slaveholder has no in
demnity, he has a title to sympathy and equitabl
consideration. A man, who, by conscientious and
honorable relinquishment of what he discovers to
be another s, makes himself comparatively poor,
deserves respect and liberal aid. There are few
at the north who would not joyfully acquiesce in
the plan of that distinguished statesman, Kulu
King, for large onnropriations of the public land
to the indemnifying of sufferers under an act of

A Southern Mode of Abolishing Slavery.
We received last week the following letter from
Francis Tufts. Esq., P. M. at Blountsvillc, Ala
bama, which, in style and spirit, is so far superior
., i . i .i
to many upon tne same suDjeci, irom souuiern
men, that we feel no inclination to refuse to pub
lish it as requested. The writer has started a new
idea in reference to abolition " take them (the
slaves) home and marry them to your sons and
daughters." Should this be done, Mr. P. M.,
what would become of your rice, cane and cotton
fields? who would wield the implements of hus
bandry? Would those who now usurp the au-
of the friends of the Whig candidate TMr. Clavl
in those regions the Northl are against us the
great mass of Mr. Van Buren's friends are with

feelings." He is strong for us the slave-holders
where the danger is greatest against us."

Dear Sir, Although we are entire strangers
I find we agree in many particulars which I be
lieve lo be of vital importance to this nation, arid
especially the M. E. Church, of which I have
been a member for a number of years.
It was at my instance that the Watchman found
its way to this place. Jiut you know that those
of us living in the slave states who are opposed
to slavery are under a rigid necessity of acting
very cautiously, lest our way should be entirely
blocked up. U, when will oppression cease, and
the liberty of speech and of the press have th-jir
full sway in every state in this nation ?
You may rest assured that there are thousands
in the southern states who are with you in senti
ment in Opposition to clerical usurpation, though
possibly, all of them cannot yet go all lengths with
you on the subject of abolition.
I herewith send you five dollars, three of which
are to aid in defraying the expenses of that wick
ed law suit. Yours, &c.

Extract of a letter from Penn Yan, the seat of
the great Western Anti-Slavery Convention, dat
ed March 14.
" It is an interesting fact that our Convention
was immediately followed by the manliest pres
ence of the converting Spirit of God, so that it may
be said that we are now enjoying a sweet and
precious revival of religion. A protracted meet
ing was commenced in tha Baptist church, of
which Elder Bennett one of the business com
mittee at our Convention is pastor, which is still
n progress. Ureat multitudes are lound every
ever. ing, silting under the preaching of the blessed
gospel, some are rejoicing in hope, and not a
lew are anxiously inquiring what ihey shall do
to be saved. All our churches are solemn and
serious, and that class of the brethren who have
therto waged a relentless war againsrthe in
terests of the poor slave, seem now to be quite
willing to be at peace. It is believed that the
churches are now in a better state of feeling than
they have been for some time past. Let the Lord
be praised for his goodness." Friend of Man.

Dissipation prevails to an almost incredible
extent. Drink, drink, Is theorderol the day, and
of the night too. It is a prevailing opinion, or at
least a common saying, that a man cannot live in
the south unless he drinks brandy. It would un
doubtedly be just to ascribe less of the prevailing
sickness to the climate, and more to strong drink.
The City of Mobile, with a population of twelve

Frontiek. The last St. Albans Messenger
has the following :
A Hairs on our frontier have assumed a more
quiet appearance since our last. There has been
no burning. JJoubtless this is owing in a great
measure to the presence and watchfulness of our
militia, who have, in several instances, frustrated
the plans of the incendiaries. The almost night
ly disturbances of our guard we fear will yet lead
to serious consequences.
On Thursday morning about 3 o'clock, Capt.
Cad well's guard, stationed at Johnson's were fired
upon by three men, who immediately Ilea, iheir
firing, however took no effect. On Friday night
the guard stationed near Shetler's were somewhat
molested. A correspondent from Saxe's Mills,
(Highgate,) speaks of it as follows :
" The guard on the outpost, about 1 1 o'clock,
saw a man prowling about in the lots among some
scattering trees near the post. The guard hail
ed him, upon which the man snapped his gun.
The guard then fired without effect. Nothing
more was seen till about midnight, when two men
were discovered near the same spot.
Our guard hailed them, and for answer receiv-
ad the discharge of two guns. Our guard then
returned the fire with three guns, but still without
any effect. Having no more cartridges, they re
turned to the house after amunition. When they
retired they heard the men say ' they have left.'
The guard and others returned to the spot, but
could discover nothing. At 3 o'clock the picket
saw a man approaching, when he hailed him, but
received no answer. lie then snapped his gun.
but it flashed in the pan. The man immediately
disappeared in the woods.
Un Saturday night there was some disturbance.
One of our guard seeing a suspicious looking per
son a short distance off, hailed him, whereupon a
gun was discharged, which was immediately re
turned by the guard : but probably without effect.'
The Awful Plunge. The St. Catherine, U.
C. Journal of the 6ih, states that five men were
swept over the Niagara Falls on the previou
Thursday. The Journal says ;
" The only particulars we have been able to
learn, are. that just before sunrise on Thursday
morning last, a boat with two men in it, was dis
covered in the middle of the river, above the falls
vainly endeavoring to make their way through
the ice, with which they were enclosed, to the
Canada shore. The utmost exertions proved un
availing, and in a short time they were seen to
enter the cascades, when they disappeared. In half
an hour alter, another boat, with three men in :

Fifteen Days Later from England. The
Great Western arrived at New York at midnight
on Sunday. She left Bristol on her regular day
23d March and lias been delayed bv a very bois
terous passage. She brings dates to the evening
f the 22d from bondon and Liverpool.
Uotton had advaced about three lartnings in
Liverpool since our last dates.
The news is decidedly pacific. The President's
message and the preliminary proceedings in Con
gress on the boundary question, with the memo
randum agreed upon by Mr. Fox and Mr. For
syth, were received in England by the packet ship
England, on the XJUth March and the proposed
temporary adjustment ol the dispute, and her pro
tocol, appears to have given general satisfaction,
and even the most violent anti-American journals
wilh one or two exceptions only are comparitive-
ly moderate in their language, and their genera!
tone is deprecatory to War.
The subject produced in England less sensation,
than was anticipated here, and was deemed, gener
ally, a local boundary question, and no fear was
entertained that the amicable relations of the two
countries would be disturbed. Passengers, of in
telligence, in the Great Western, say that the
idea of going to war with this country is deemed
by the people and the government, preposterous,
and the sinking of the whole territory in dispute
into the bosom of the ocean, better than that such
an event should lake place.
The steamer Liverpool, which carried out the
war speeches in Congress, and the law authoriz
ing the raising of men and money to support our
claim to the territory, had not, however, arrived
when the Great Western left Bristol, and the ef
fect of that intelligence remains to be seen. Bos

of water; took off Edmund Burke, boat steerer,
Obed Chace, Benj. Snow, Samuel Gilford, Charle:

with some of these men, who say, the A. was lying

the night washed off Jeremiah Berry, 2J mate,
and most of the watch on deck, filling the cabin
and forecastle; in the latter some were drowned.
The Captain, Charles Bates, and Wilson Parlow,
mate, gained the main top, also one or two boat
steerers, and some seamen, where they died in
about 36 hours. The captain died and fell off, the
mate came on deck and died j the captain was vet

above named were taken off. A few days after
