SONG TO THE SABBATH.
The Sabbath day-the gilt divine!
That whatsdt 'er our creed,
Supplies with bounteous beniign
Leisure for every need;
For prayer, for praise, for soothing rest;
For thought of boundles scope,
For heed of Charity's behest,
For love, fur joy, fur hope.
The Sabbath day-the glorious day
Beyond the city Late,
Let tens of thousands wend their way,
Where breeze and sun.hine wait,
And let them see the treamlets flow,
And tread the daisied rod,
And look upon the buds that blow,
And search and find out God.
The Sabbath day-the buckler strung.
That guards the poor and weak,
Shielding the desolate from wrong,
Leaving the tyrant weak.
The Sabbath day-O prize it well,
Its wisdom learn to sean ;
A like in temple. field. or cell,
' The Sabbath made for man."
THE PRINTEE'S LOVE.
We love to see the bloning rose,
In all its beauty dressed.; .
We love to hear our friends disclose
The emutions of the breast.
We love to see the ship arrive
Well laden to our shore; a
We love to see our netighbors thrive, h
And love to bless the poor. L
We love to see dome'stc life
With uninterrupted ys;
We love to see a happy wife
With lots of girls and boys. d
We love all these-yet far above k
All that we ever said,
We love what every printer loves, t
To ha-e subscriptions paid.

W illiatn S6avery, ati eminent preacher f,

aiil he had reason to believe that the thief
as a qua:rrelsome. drutnken neighbor, whom a
call J"n Sieiti. 'I'le n:ext week the le

C nuitry newspaper:
- hoever tule a quantity of hides on a

This *singular advertisement attracted h
Cosiderable attention ; but thee culprit aloie a

ewas filled with sorrowv for what lie had

ey heard a timtid knock, and when the

As soon: as they were gone out, his wife
prepaed sonie hot coffeec, and placed jeies

lie turned his back towards her and did
ot speak. After leatinitg agatinst the fire
place in silence a fe.w moments, lhe said min
aeboked voice: " It is the first time I everi
sttle a::3thing, and I have felt very had,
about it.' I an: sure I didn't once thinek that
Ishould ever comne to what I amt. But It
took to drinikinig, and the:: to quarrelling.

you! but yet I stole the hides. But I tell
ou the truth whien I say it is the first time
Iwas ever a thief."
"Let be the last, m:y friend," replied Wil
am Savery. The secret still lies between
ourselves. Thou art still young, and it is it
thy power to make up for leost time. Prom
ise me that thou wilt not drinik any intoxica

The poor fellow tried to eat and drink,

IBnorienLl KINDNEs TO TlIt ErniiNo.
ong wvomnan, sonic time ago, entered a
ay goods store and wished to look ait seve.ral
lngs, anad among others at kid ghoves. A C
er lookinig at ribbhots, laces, anid sundry
ther articles, she made a purchatse of sonme
all mntter for five or six cents. A gern
enan in the store nioticed that she had coil
'ald one pair '>jf the kid gloves which had
eeni put on theo counter for lhen examuination.
hle the clerk was making change, the
ut.lan mranirged to notify merchant of
eiu teft. Whrile miairy w'ould have spoken
r harshly ind reproachifullyv to the young
orian, or prhaps have charged hair adouble
. the gloves, a better s,pinit moved this
'excellent merchant. Wishing to speak with
her aside for a moment, he told her that he
was aware that she had yielded to a- base
temptation, aid had taken a pair of gloves.
She acknowledgeI her guilt, and would
make any reqrired compensation. But he
would neither take the gloves back, nor take
anv compensation for them. Kindly and
brokter-like. he desired her to keep them as
a warning, hoping that no such temptation
would ever overcome her again. Who could
.have done anything more noble, or more
likely to reform or save from future errors?
From the southern Baptit.
We must confesz, notwithstanding the gene.
ral elevation of American society, that dan.
gerous elements exist in its constlitution.
The great cities are the regulators of our
manners. They extend a sensible influence
over all parts of the country. From these
centres the power of the press is exerted.
And our migratory fashionable society, in its
visits to watering places and its country so.
journings, carries the infection of mnetropoli.
tan customs and principles, everywhere. It
is a fact which, however painful and alarinin
ought not to be :oncea!ed, that these exam
ples and lessons are not, for the most p.rt,
such as our people can wisely follow. 'lhe
New York Times, iii a recent editorial on
the social organization of that city, says:
" Our fashionable society is a shame, from
beginning to end. It is utterly uisound,
depraved, and unnatural-a deceptive piece
of rotten wood, nrade to look shiny with
French polish, and glittering with the phos.
phorescent light of corruption-a copper
cent, trying its very best to look like a fiv.
franc piece, and, what is worse, in nine
cases out of ten succeeding."
That this is a correct description of New

But in a modified sense it is also true of a
class to lie found everywhere. The great
end of life with our fashionables, is an Epien.

Gospel and the example of Jesus Christ

less creditable, to spend than to gather. We
know that creditors lose, that honest laliorers
remain unpaid, that innocent finnilies are
ruiiined, by the extravgagance of dress and
eqipage and furniture that build up the
motley structure of fashionale greatness.
We have knowi luxury itself to ble used as a
cloak for new&mnpositions ; and one who is

as many fortunes as possible beneath th.

There have been meetings held at Inde
pendence and Westport, Missouri, to coun
teract the emigration from the free States
into the new territories, by slave emigration.
The St. Louis Republican publishes the
resolutions. Those of the Westport meet
ing are as follows:
Having recently. received intelligence of
the prssage of a lill by Congress for the
organization of the Territories of Kansas and
Nebraska, repealing the Missouri restriction,
and opening said Territories for settlement
equally to all the people of the Union; and
feeling a deep and lively interest, especially
in tie speedy occupation of our border Ter
ritory of Kanisas, and the organization of a
government in it, and the passage of laws
which shall protect emigrants from every
portiorn of tihe country in the possession and
einjoyment of their property, of whatever
character; and having heard, through the
public papers, that organizations are now on
foot in 'some of (lie Northern States, having
fr their object the colonization of the new
Territories exclusively with eastern and for
eign paupers, with a view directly to exclude
and deter from the said Territories emigra
tion from the Southern States, and more par
tieularlv slave emigration from Missouri and
Arkansas; aird having also heard of a recent
attempt of a ganig of Freesoilers, who held
a- meeting within this Territory, and auda
cioumnly resolved that no slave property should
be brought into the same ; and being our
selves, iany of us, determined to seek in
Kansas our future homes, and to carry with
us our property of every description which
we think proper; and being determined to
hold and enjoy the same in peace or by
force, we hereby organize ourselves into a
socicty of Missourians, for mutual protection,
" 1. Resolved, That we invite all well
disposed citizens, from wherever they mlay
come, but iore especially our fellow-citizegs
of the slave holding States, to unite with us.
" 2. Resolved, That we will afford to each
other mutual protection in claming and
holding lands in Kansas Territorv; that we
wvill nlot encroach upon the clhins or rights
of each other, nor will we allow any intru
ders to do the same; that until the ountry
is surveyed no laimn shall lie made nearer
to any other than half a mile, securing to
each settier a quarter section of land, and
that we will protect and defend the claim of
each and every individual of this organiza
tion, which imay lie staked off and d-signated

to actual settlement.

that we will hold and enjoy the same ; that
we will do so peacefully, and deprecate any

of our just and lawful' rights; yet (in no
spirit of bravado and with the strongest
wish for peace) apprehensive of interference
with our private and domestic concerns by
certain orgaiized hands who are to be ire
cipitated upon us, we notify all such that
our purpose is firm, to enjoy all our rights,
arid to imeet with tire last argument all who
shall in any way infringe upon them.

to organize with these ends in view; and to
each and every man who feels an interest in

A New Southern Political Orgniza.n
We have every reason to believe that it is
now the settled purpose of the -whigs of thi
South in Congress, who are opposed to the
affiliation with Northern whigs who are'ei
ther for a repeal of the fugitive slave law or
pronounce the repeal of the Missouri com-.
promise a gross outrage, to agitate for th,
formation of a new Southern party, based
upon a refusal to affiliate in any way what
ever with any man or party whatever, tinc
tured remotely or directly with freesoilism.
They allege' that the national organization
of democratic party aids, abets, and sustains
to a certain extent, the democratic freesoil.
ers, in acknowledging them to be a-wing of'
the great democratic organization of the'.
country; and they further, doubtless, intend
to argue to their respective constituencies,
that they should no longer send democrats
to Congress, unless under a pledge thatLthey
will wash their hands clear of all such as-.
sociations. Above, we present .the points
upon which the new party are to go -before
the country. The end of their movement
cannot yet be foreseen, though its success
can hardly fail to be very much in the pro.
portion in which Northern democrats identi-.
fy themselves with the cause of the repeal
of the fugitive slave law.
We clip the above from the Washington
Star. We regard the rumored. movement
of the Southern whigs as a good one. It is -
high time that the peop!e of the South were
more perfectly united-that all political dif.
ferences, which have heretofore divided them
and which exist more in name than in reali
ty, should be merged in fraternal union and
a sectionil defence of their constitutional
rights, and especially their peculiar institu.
tion-that party lines should be obliterated
forever, aiid our people rally around a com
mon standard prepared to contend " to the
death" for their rights in the Union, or'a
separation, a final and complete separalion
from those who seek to destroy us. The
Whigs and Democrats of the South are more
clo'ely affiliated in interest thin the wings
of either party in the two sections ofr'the
Union. The Democrats of the North-a
large majority of them-are farther removed
in principle, above all, in fraternal feeling
and interest, from the party of the same at
the South than are the most ultra Whigs of
our section. There should, therefore, be a
general fusion of two parties with us-an
obliteration of nl party differences. Our,
enemies are many and fierce, thirsting fi
our life.blood. We should be unite.."
