derous itrile, tue w orkings of wliicii
have been humbly illustrated in the
transactions of tins wceli in ttie neigh
boring city ol Louisville.
It is not our object to inquire w ho
have been the aggressors in this or

too common an occurrence in the coun

such outrages occur at ail, and that

anity in its purest lorm has been drag
ged into the strife now raging tmougti-

that stnie by the adroit management of
irteligious men, w ho have no interest
to serve but that of party, and who
being devoid of tue true spirit of re
ligion,are unable to distinguish between
its theory and its practice, and are ever
disposed to regaid the injunctions ot

In shoit, a successful attempt has
been made to place Protestantism in a

Uipe, by the use ol political measures,
coersive or proscripiue in their nature
is there a section in the great com
mission that enjoins this course nl con
duct even when the government and
laws ot a country jusulics the adoption
oi such measures? We know ol none.
But w hen the spirit of Hie Constitu
tion and laws ol the land lorbid such
conduct, where is the divine commis
sion to ministers ot the Gospel that en
joins such a violation ot them, and lor
such a pnrposef 1 lie commission is,
"Go, teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name ot the Father, and ot the
Son, atid of the Holy Ghost, teaching
Uiem to observe all things w hatsoever
I have commanded you." And prou
n.etit amongst those sacred orders we
hud the following directions : "Swear
not at all," -'resist not evil, but whoso
ever shall smile thee on thy right cheeK,
turn to hitn the other also," "Love
your enemies, bless them that curse
you," "Judge not that ye be not judgl
ed." And Christ thus speaks oi his
great mission to earth, and the mission
oi his lollowers. "The Son of Man
is not come to destroy men's lives but
to save them," "behold I send y ou lortn
as lambs amongst wolves,' "whatso
ever ye would mat men should do to
y 6u, do ye even so to them.
' Mow the question arises how did
the early teachers of Christianity un
derstand those precepts, did they seek
tue political ascendency in any land, so
as to weild tii arms ot civil or politi
cal power lor the advancement of the
truth, or did tuey use physical ' force,
as one of their arguments in convert
ing those who opposed them. Hear
tiiem, as their voice comes over, the
expanse ol eighteen hundred centuries,

and angry spirit. ol humanity. uTho
I spean wim the tongue of men and
of angels, aud have tiot charity, i am

be gentle unto all men, apt to teach,

Jochua R. Giddings, in the Ashtabula
Sentinel, continues to talked about the
Know Nothings thus:
"For month before the uotniiution
of July 13th the Sentinal opposed the
A'now Nothiugi a a political party,
and protested against any coalition or
fusion with ihe in as a politieal pirty.
But we held the Republican party opeu
to new recruits, aud were prepared to
unite with any individual w bo would
join US upon the platform we had pro
poser!-- The Know- Nstbing sought lb
make their views and mend prominent
in ihe-coctest of this year; and the Ke:
publican so'.ghl to entirely ignore1
ihe n as a - party. By tacit couseut it
was on all haniU understood that if Mr.
Chase was' nominated and ' resolutions
ignored ibe Know Nothing part, tlie
Republican ' took the lead in the Con
