We have received' from Bx)ber*^tforri(|,

olive leaf, with the following, explanation:

"And the dove pamo in to him in the
evening: and,- lol in lier mouth was an
olive leaf pluokt off; ao Noah knew that
the watara were abated from off the earth."
IQeneaia VIII, ll.
Like wandering dove,' whose restless feet
Gould And no Bolld landing-place,
I pluok this Olive Leaf, to grace
A memory ever pure and a wo ot.
Thia waa the anoient type of peace;
Tho wrathful flood waa overpast,
The gladsome sun beamod forth at last,
The Ark ita a torin-tossed ways did ceaso.
Then from the Olive bough the bird
Cropped this green loaf with myetio
And to tee Patriarch's hand she bare
The misai YO, with its high accord.
Deuteronomy Vin, 8. Psalm Lil, 8.
1 Kings, V. ll. Psalms OXXVin, 3.
Psar friend, to yon thia Ol i ve-spray
I send, the messongor of love;
It Bpeaks a Sentiment above
All other language to convey.
The Olivo-glory of this land;
Our Ancient Craft from this expressed
The Oil of Joy, that shone and blessod,
i In hours of rest, the laboring Baud.
The deadliest liando, upraised in hate
Before this gentle missive, drop;
The dlroBt discord then must stop
The Olive speaks-the floods abato.
All this, and more, I fain would toach
From this bright, ancient, verdant text;
Take it with all tho words annexed
Be yours the sermon that they preachl
Religion ona Pol?tica.
A rare Convention was held in Bos?
ton, Saturday last. It was an assem?
blage of those who, in slang phrase,
are called "comeouters;" in other
words, tho "Free Religious Associa?
tion." Wendell Phillips, Olympia
Brown, O. B. Frothingham, and such
crazy bodies, wero present. There
was, indeed,. a perfect freedom of
opinion amongst them; for they wero
hardly agreed in anything, except
that every body had a right to their
own.opinions on everything. A let?
ter writer, describing this strange as?
semblage, says that "their faces had
the indefinable look of folks who ore
deeply in earnest and thorougldy out
of JciUer, with tho received order of
Frothingham was made Preai
? dent. He declared that Christiani?
ty was but "a soot;" and "sci?
ence confounded Christianity." "For
instance," he said, Christianity
"taught that the world was made
in six days." This, Be thonght,
would answer for an age in which the
earth was considered "a little piece
of land, whereon two or three tribes
- of men could raise their subsistence. "
But "biology, geology, psyohology,
and all the rest" of the dogies,
taught that "hundreds of thousands
'of years elapsed before the earth
evolved from nothing into beauty. "
The orator pinned his faith to tho
nebular theory. "Out of misty mat
? ter, and not ont of chaos," said he,
"did the world come"-i. e., we sup?
pose, out of FrothingJiamf
The next speaker was James Free?
man Clarke, who showed rather too
much good sense for the company he
was in. He denied that Christianity
was a sect. He said some things so
striking that we make an extract:
"Christianity contains all tho ele?
ments of good that all other known
.Bystems have ever taught. Tho vir?
tues inculcated by Brahmanism, the
dignity and immortality of the soul,
. taught by Buddhism, the duty of re?
sisting evil by good, and of loving
the neighbor, taught by Zoaroaster;
all the excellence in the religions of
Greece and of Rome, all, all are con?
tained; all, all aro exceeded by the
doctrines of Christianity. [Great
applause.] Mr. Frothingham declares
where thero aro walls there can be no
freedom. I declare that without there
are walls, there can be no freedom.
[Sensation.] What use is ste um till
you confine it? It must bo impris?
oned; and then it is next to omnipo?
tent. Unless I live within the walls
of my house, I have no freedom of
hospitality to offer my friends. I
must fence in my orchard, before I
can raise apples to give away. If all
our apples grew on the common, no
one would have any, for without pro?
perty, there can be no general pro?
perty. [Applause.] I assort freedom
to be dependent on law, for where
there is no law, thoro can be no li?
Wendell Phillips, the great light of
the affair, closed the exhibition with
one of his peculiar speeches. He
elaborated Higginson's idea that the
Church (meaning all the ohurcbos
which believe in radicalism,) was fos?
siliferous, and standing still, save
when urged on by radicalism. He
represented it as coming to share the
triumphs of radicalism, and proclaim?
ing, of the success of measures they
at first opposed, "I told you so."
The Church, viewed in the Phillips
light, oouldbo only Satan; and "com?
ing in at the death," as he described
its appearance at a radical victory,
would be bettor indicated by the
words, "And last of all came Satan
Phillips went on to speak of th?
great advantages of agitation, and
declared by it they would yet secare
the ballot to tho negro everywhere
He tims concluded:
"I proposo to do it just as Chris
tianity occupied the throno of tb<
C?osars. [Loud cheers.] ? propose
to do it by telling men jost what God
tails mo. ! I will do it by doing what
the temperan oe eoci?ties, which are
os hide-bound as the churches, doro
not do--exainv?e a Republican candi?
date for the Presidency-th? moat
pbpular mah in America, who cannot
stand up before a glass cf liquor with?
out falling ?down. [Great silenoe,
succeeded by applause.] I will do it
by opposing the Republican party
when it bids me 'be silent about negi'o
suffrage North, it will hurt our party.
Be silent about General Grant's drink?
ing, it wiH Jittrt his chances'.' I reply,
God bids mo speak what you bid me
forbear. I 'will Bpeak, and let the
dead bury their dead, whether they
bury him in the White House or not."

given birth to any such mad associa?
