The Fulling Star.
BY 8ALLIK H. BUTAX.
Just then, upon its wings of firo,
A star went flying by,
And vanished o'er tho waves of cloud,
A sea-bird of the sky !
To-night there ring across my heart
Old half forgotton chimes,
Whoso mournful niuic memory caught
Among its nursery-rhymes.
In thoso sweet years I've heard them any
No wish could bo denied;
If it were formed wlilo flashed thro' Heaven
A fading meteor's pride.
Ah, then I only wi.-dicd to catch
The bluc-Lirds on the Lill,
Or, with b;iro feet to wander down
Some shady wood-land rilL
For (oh, how long ngo it seems)
I then was but a child,
Whoso chock was bright, whose golden bair
Upon tho winds flew wild ;
Whoso tiny hand drove humming-birds
From every rose's breast,
Whose sunny brown and lisping lip
A mother's kisses pressed.
Yes, then I only wished to catch
Tho blue birds on tho hill,
Or, with baro feet, to wauder-down
Somo thady wood-land rill.
But eiure the years have passed and loft
Their paleness on my brow,
Their twilight-shadows in my heart
What nro my w ishes now t
When next a fire shall flash along
The night's eternal Hue,
What can I ask ere it shall fade
Forever from my view?
Oh, it would bo to look on thco
Once mure although in vain
Tut mourning angels w hisper fow:
" Wuko not that droitm again."
And thou tho brightest and the lust
Oh, how this heart of mino
Forgot thejmiit nnd pride before
Those dark-blue eyes of thine.
Yet shall I wish that in thy heart
A thought of mo may dwell ?
No no 'twill bo for power to say
Of thee thco loo farewell.

Grand IIavem, January, 1859.
In mv last I qavo you in brief the
condition of our county hitherto, in a re
ligious point of view my statements
having a general signification with a
promise to particuralise in my next.
Commencing at Urand Haven wo havo
threo churches in our village; a Presby
terian, a Congregational, and a church
com nosed of our Holland citizens.
The first Church in this countv was
established in tho month of November,
1834, (if my memory serves mo as to
dates), by tho llcv. Win. M. Ferry, who,
with Jus lumily, at an early period migrat
ed hither from Mackinac, whero for a ser
ries of years lie had lalored as a mission
ary. A number of families accompanied
him to his then wilderness home, consist
ing of kindred and others. As soon as
practicablo, a church organization tool
place, composed of the pious of those
lannhes, using at first as tho placo of
worship a room in tho mansion of that
Kcv, gentleman, set apart for that pur-
poso until a small public building wa9
creeled, which served tho doublo purpose
of a Kchxl room nnd a placo of worship
for nearly a scoro of yoars ; and though
extremely meagre in its dimensions, yet,
so little indeed wcro our citizens imbued
with a go-to-meeting spirit, that, from its
erection up to nearly tho present timp, it
has afforded amnio accommodations for
church and people, lho Church until
the two years past, increased but slowly
lnuccu in us momoeFsnip, uiougu us pns-
tor had faithfully, for twenty years, re
hearsed in tho hearing of thoso w ho fa
vored hitu with a listening car, tho pleas
ing and glorious truths ot tho gospel
ointcd tho way to paradise, and urged
tliem inuncr. in mo irooa auvico,
friendly counsel, and urgent solicitudo for
tho spiritual welfare of his little floelc,
wcro a free-will offering on the part of
their pastor, without money and without
price ; and not onco during tho period of
thoso twenty long years was any compen
sation asked or rcecivod therefor an ef
fectual counlcr-nlen to tho statement oft
mado by thoso void of truo wisdonip
that all ministers in piritunl things aro

l'astor of tho Presbyterian Church of
Grand Haven; ho sought the good of the
community ; for tho prosperity and well-
being of tho people; not Ins own, only so
far as his fortune was intimately connect
ed with theirs. .
At tho termination oflhopeiiod abovo
cited, certain of our citizens camo to tho
sago conclusion that it would bo in no
wlso derogatory to their high position in
society, or to their good uarao abroad as
thoso desirious to promote, by every
means in their power, the principles of puro
morality and virtue among their fellows, to
erect a Churchy tho first one in tho west
half of our county reared at tho hands
of tho descendants of tho Pilgrim fathers,
in every community of whom iu olden
time tho Church and school houso wcro
looked to as sure indices of tho stato of
religion and education thero prevailing.
lho Church edifico is built; a fino ono
too an honor indeed aliko to our villago
and tho liberality of its citizens. Tho
Kcv. J. Anderson was solicited to bocomo
our pastor Mr. Ferry wished to bo re
lieved from the sole caro ot tho church and
tho administration of spiritual things.
At tho expiration of tho first year of tho
pastorato of Mr. Anderson, which occur
red in April, 1858, causes existed, not
neccessary to bo mado known beyoi d our
own limits, that operated in tho forma
tion of a new and distinct religious or
ganization agreeable to tho Statute law
mado and provided for such purposes
known as tho First Congregational
Society of Grand Haven, of which Mr.
A. bocamo and still continues the pastor.
Subsequently, another religious organ
ization took placo under tho satno provis
ion of tho statute, and composed princi
pally of tho members of tho Church in
its formation, aud others in friendly con
nection, known as tho First Presbyterian
Church in Grand Haven, under tho pas
toral charge of Dr. Eddy, formerly, 1 be
lieve, of Detroit.
Theso two religious societies aro now
in exceedingly prosperous circumstances ;
tho meetings of each on tho Sabbath are
well attended; so much so on tho part of
the Congregational Society ; that tho spa
cious room occupied by the higher depart
of tho Union School, is found altogether
inadequato to tho wants of tho society;
ami henco, a new, chaste, yet elegant
church edifico is now in course of erection
for its accommodation, and will probably
bo ready for occupation early in tho
It is mdeod a pleasing sight to witness
gent-looking Lads and Misses that as
semble at tho placo of worship ot each
Society, respectively, after tho largo con
gregations retire, to rchearso to their rc
spoctive teachers lho pleasing lessons of
scripture truth and Heavenly wisdonr
learned miring ine ween; anu as wo wit
ness tho inspiring scene, wo almost invol
untary exclaim, '0f such is tho kingdom
of I leaven."
To understand to its full extent, tho
very marked improvement in tho atten
tion paid by our citizens generally to tho
Sabbath and tho means of religious in
struction, ono needs to bo thoroughly con
versant with our history threo years ago
and at tho present time, and ho will find
that ohange, at least threo hundred er
cent b(ltcr in tho number of members
that forms tho church of tho respective
Societies tho number of pupils that
composo tho Sabbath School and Bible
Classes tho attendance upon religious
services, fcc., tho estimato of which may

seventy; members7 of Sabbath Schools
and Biblo Classes, threo hundred; citi
zens attending public worship not mem
bers of tho Church two hundred.

Church of our Holland citizens, that fho

Church edifice, which now renders it ca
pable of accommodating from threo to
four hundred hearers. This Church and

pietv. learninrr nnd ability, as ft successful

THE FOUR INDIAX STATES.
Tho progress of civilization in several
of tho Indian tribes occupying Territories
west of tho btates will soon bring up a
new question for tho decision of Congress :
What shall bo dono with the Indian gov
ernments or States that aro now fully or
ganized t Aro they finally to bo admit
ted to tho Union! Is a new removal at
somo futuro tituo to bo mado of tho tribes
civilized and christianized, to mako room
for tho Caucasian wave rolling west ? Or
are foreign governments to grow up in tho
very hcai tot the territory of lho U. btatcs.
1 ho Chcrokees organized a regular gov
ernment as early as 1839, copying tho pe
culiar features of lho constitution of tho
United States. Tho forms of legislation
and tho arrangement of tho courts of jus
tice so nearly resemble those of tho btatcs,
that, but fur tho tawny skins around him,
tho traveler info tho Cherokee, territory
would scarcely find any indication of hav
ing passed its boundaries.
This tribo has improved in all tho arts
of civilization to such a degree that many
of its principal men would grace tho re
fined society of any nation. In respect
for tho law, regard for popular education
and public morality, and tho adoption of
all tho elegancies and advantages of civ
ilization, tho Chcrokees havo taken a po
sition which forbids any forcible interfer
ence with their rights to lho territory they
occupy, 10 sun uio conveniences or ouvi
ato tho anomaly which lho existence of
their State now presents.
lho Choctaws formed thoirgovernmcnt,
Liking tho institutions of tho United
States for their model, in 1834. Imita
ting their moro progressive white neigh
bors, last year they revised their constitu
tion, and adopted even tho most minulo
forms of government and tho names of
officers which prevail in each of tho States
of our Confederacy. - .
Tho Chickasaws, lately separate 1 from
tho Choctrws, have also followed tho ex
nmplo of tho two triltes mentioned, and
thus tho third government, with institu
tions identical with our own, exists on the
borders of tho south-western Stales, oc
cupying territory ceded to them by the
fho Creeks aro taking steps to create
the fourth independent organization of a
Stato form of government, and will soon
present an example of tho inlltienco of civ
ilization in subverting tho customs and
traditions of tho raco indigenous to tho

years without forcing itself upon the at

Tho tido of population is steadily roll
ing west. In less thau ten years it will
beat against lho barriers now thrown up
against its invasion of tho retreat of thoso
civilized aborigines. . Even uow lho emi-
igration must cross these territories. These
Indian Slates can not exist, when the
Caucasian raco presses upon them, as in
dependent governments. Tho people, civ
ilized and attached to tho soil they havo
improved, cannot bo removed to remote
wilds, nor, without serious discoutcnls, is
it likely tho United States can subject
them to tho condition of other Territorial
organizations, by an abrogation of tho
constitutions they havo established for
themselves. What, then, 13 to lo done
with theso Indian Stales! It cannot
fail to givo greater interest to this ques
tion that each of theso Indian States hare
adopted lho 6ocial institutions of tho

Southern Sentiment on the Afri-
can Slave Trade. That a I:ure ma
jority of the peoplo of tho Southern
btatcs aro bitterly opposed to tho Afri
can slave trade, we have Mt fully con
vinced ever since the opening of tho pres
ent discussion on that subject; but wo
must acki owledge t hat wo have had no
idea of the almost complcto unanimity o(
hostility which characterizes southern sen
timent on the question. Nearly ccry
newspaper in the South is a strenuous op
ponent of the trade; and several Legisla
tures in that section havo virtually "ject-
ed, by large majorities, resolutions in its
favor. And not only politicians, but tho
churches, havo declared against it. At a
recent meeting of the Ilorky Crvk
(South Carolina) Baptist Church, the fol
lowing resolutions were passed and order
ed to he published :
" Wu rcas, We have lrn credibly in
formed that a largo body of imiivc Afri
cans aro within our mi Lit, and an dibit is
being made tor. -read them broadcast over
the country ;
" Hesnlccd, That we do not opvso the
cxistenco of slavery as we have it among
us, but aro willing to defend it with tho
means that God has given us.

Carolina, for tho purpose of mak
ing slaves of them, meets our unqualified
disapprobation, ami wo will opposo it with
all tho legal means within our power."
