[Reported for the American Republican.]
We continue our report of the interesting
.proceedings of this bod)', where it was broken
oft' in yesterday's paper:
Mr. Henderson, of Uniontown, l'a., spoke
of the desecration of the Sabbath in that sec
tion, in consequence of the travel on the na
tional road, begetting an almost total disregard
for the day, thereby greatly endangering the
uninterrupted course of the United States
[Mr. 11. Lemmon, of this city, made a state
ment in reference to the wrong position in
which lie had boon placed by an afternoon pa
per. lie defined his position.]
Mr. Baldwin, of N. Y.,gave some testimony
as to the suffering of the inhabitants of the
Mohawk Valley, in consequence of the contin
uance of railroad and canal travel. The Uti
ca and Schenectady railroads, were ready to
suspend Sabbath operations, if the U. S. mail
did not force them to continue—passenger
trains having been already withdrawn.
, Rev. Timothy Stillman, of N. Y., express
ed the opinion of those engaged on the route
from Albany, N. Y., to Chester, Pa., as being
anxious that when the present contract with the
United States for carrying the mail should ex
pire, such a change would be made as to pre
vent the running upon the Sabbath. The Del
aware and Hudson canal, running from New
York to Pennsylvania, hail discontinued violat
ing the Sabbath; and its stock had advanced
far in value, and could not now be purchased
only with some difficulty. The steamboats on
the Lakes, anxious to suspend Sabbath travel,
had discontinued the boats between Butl'alojand
. Mr. Parker, of New York city, said the Erio
Railroad had resolved that "no Sabbath-break
ing car should pass over it; and that all minis
ters of the gospel and poor religious agents,
should be permitted to pass free over the
road." Tho company was now prosperous.—
He spoke of the frequency of religious persons
travelling on the Sabbath, to hear some favo
rite preacher, &c., as giving countenance to its
violation, lie had some knowledge of what
little regard was had, by the rising generations
for the Sabbath, and, among other instances,
mentioned the case of a retailer of candies re
ceiving 300 cents from selling candies to child
ren in passing to Sabbatli School. A person,
in crossing a ferry, asked the ferryman why he
remained at his labor on the Sabbath, and re
ceived as a reply, "To accommodate such fools
as you are." •
k Mr. Bokum, of Pennsylvania, as a German,
spoke of the beauties of an American Sabbath,
and the manner in which it was observed in
the country of his nativity, He had found a
great disposition on the part of Germans in
this country, not to go to church on the Sab
bath, or to remain at home; and in counselling
with them as to the impropriety of making it
a day for feasting, pleasure, or pastime, lie had
refrained from urging the rigid injunctions of
the Bible to keep it holy, least it should excite
old national opinions, and therefore preferred
reasoning with them as to the propriety of go
ing to church, as a moral principle.
Mr. Powell read somo statements in refer
ence to favorable action on the part of railroad
and canal companies in Pennsylvania, Mary
land, New York and Ohio, in their desire to
keep sacred the Sabbath, by suspending travel,
and of others desiring to do so if permitted by
their contract for carrying the U. S. mail. He
had, in travelling upon canals, ascertained from
youths employed in driving, that they "did not
know when the Sabbath came," and made an |
appeal in behalf of the 2,000 orphans thus
slavishly and irreligiously employed. The sus
pension of Sabbath operations, had proved sa
tisfactory to the companies, favorable to public
morals, and of groat benefit to the workmen.
' Mr. Edwards, of N. Y., bore evidence to the
favorable result, to public quiet and morals,
t along the lines and terminations of the thou
sands of miles of railroads passing in Massa
chusetts. He congratulated the Convention
upon the favorable expression of desire on the
part of many mercantile gentlemen, to do all
in their power to aid them in carrying out their
views. Ho related the circumstance of a mer
chant, who had not sent to the post office on
any business, for twenty years, having receiv
ed information from an agont of such a nature
as to cause him to prepare a communication,
but on passing to the oftico to despatch it, lie
was forcibly reminded that he was about to
violate a long observed practice, and tore the
letter up. A short time afterwards, he was
. informed that if he had given the agent such
1 instructions as tho letter he had written con
tained, he should have been made a bankrupt.
' Ho also referred to the happy result to a person
in declining to forward a person on a public
way on the Sabbath. He was applauded by
his employers for his scruples iri reference to
working on the Sabbatli, and afterwards shewn
much favor by them. He thought that those
railroad and canal companies who were willing
I to suspend Sabbatli operations, but from the
lfcsct that other portions of certain lines would
not, would take the steps the others would be
■ compelled to come into the measure. He
I spoke at much length in reference to coin pa
i nios and individuals persisting in violating the
1 Sabbath, as a most fearful array of human
j power against the Providence of God.
I The Convention, about 10 o'clock, adjourned.
THURSDAY, NOV. 28, 1828.
II The Convention was called to order by the
I President at 9 o'clock. Prayer by Bishop
| Waugh, of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
J The standing committee, through their chair
| man, reported the following resolutions for the
f action of the Convention. Which were all
Resolved, That public men, who are raised
by the suffrages of a free people to places of
official dignity and power, are laid under pecu
liar obligations to sot an examplo, with regard
to the Lord's day, which shall be sale and salu
tary to their i'ellow men, and which shall tend
to render the duo observance of that day uni
Resolved, That as but six days in a week
have been made or given to men for secular
pursuits, they have no right to take any more
lor that purpose—no more belong to them, and
if men take more, they take that which is not
theirs; and though it may sometimes promise
some temporary good, it will not be likely to
end well; for the Sabbatical Law was engraven
not only on the tables of stone, but on the bo
j dies and souls of men, and is armed with a pen
j alty which no continued violator of it can either
| annul or revoke.
j Resolved, That bodies of men by being in
! corporated for private or public objects, have
| no more right to desecrate the Sabbath than in
-1 dividual?; and that the members of such bodies
are as really bound to observe it in their public
and official acts as they are in their individual
and private transactions among their fellow
; men.
Resolved, That we recognize in the public
! satisfaction tho repeated instances in which bo
dies of men, ill their official capacity, have of
I late manifested their regard for the Lord's day,
and their disposition to assist those whom they
' employ in availing themselves of the rest and
! the privileges which that day was designed to
j afford.
Resolved, That the Sabbat h is peculiarly the
friend of the laborer, and comes as an angel ol
mercy to give him rest from his toil, to point j
hint upwards, and help him to rise in anticipa
tion of and in preparation for, "that rest which
remaineth for the people of God."
Resolved, That it is not only tho privilege;
j hut the right of the laborer to rest on the Sab- j
! bath, and a right of which he cannot be de
prived, without great evil to himself, to his
family and his fellow men.
Resolved, That as it is proved by facts that
on the whole more labor can be performed by
| working six days in a week and resting one,
than can be performed by working seven, and
: that it can be done in a better manner, the pe
j cuniary interest of men, no less really than
| their moral duties, urge them to respect that |
| law of their nature and of nature's God, which |
j requires a day of weekly rest and of devout ac- j
1 knowledgrnent of him as the Maker, Redeem- j
j er and Governor of the world.
Resolved, That as the dissemination of a j
■ knowledge of principles and facts with regard ]
! to the Sabbatli is one of the most powerful'
means of scouring its observance, it is recom- j
j mended to all to supply themselves with in- j
teresling publications on this subject, and to j
| circulate them, in all suitable ways, as exten
j sively as possible.
Resolved, That should some good Sabbath ]
I manual be obtained by every family, that all j
j the children and youth may understand the j
j object of the Divine Being in the appointment j
J of the Sabbath, and the reasons why all should j
j observe it, they would, it is believed, greatly j
j promote not only their own interest, hut all the
| iuterests of mankind.
Resolved, That the efforts that are made by
j ship-owners, merchants, and others, to give
j the rest and privilege of the Lord's Day to
j seamen, must tend to elevate their character,
increase their usefulness, and promote the good
of all.
Resolved, That the connection between the
desecration of the Sabbath and the use, as a
beverage, of intoxicating liquors, and the traf
fic in them for that purpose, and the aid which
each affords in the promotion of the other,
should lead the friends of Temperance as well j
as of the Sabbatli to porsovero in their judi-1
cious efforts to cause each of those evils to be j
Resolved, That in the following sentiments,
expressed by the New York State Sabbatli
Convention to the directors of Rail Roads who
run their ears on the Sabbath day, we cordial
ly concur, and recommend them to the con
sideration of all such persons throughout the
United States.
ft [We are compelled to omit the sentiments
on account of their length.]
After the adoption of the above resolutions,
the Rev. Justin Edwards read a paper prepared
by the standing committee of which, he is the
chairman, addressed to all railroad, steamboat
and stage companies throughout the U. States.
Tho address was unanimously adopted by the
At this stage of the proceedings, a resolution
was offered by the Rev. Mr. llanson, which j
together witli others offered in the course of
the morning session, by Messrs. Millet, of Penn
sylvania, Mr. Boardman, of Philadelphia, Mr.
Hustings, of Pa., Rev. 11. V. D. Johns, of this
city, Rev. Charles A. Davis, of Washington,
Rev. Thomas 11. Stockton, of Philadelphia,
Richard Lemmon, Esq., and Mr. Cross, of this
city, svere, under a rule of the Convention, re
ferred to the standing committee.
Letters were read from the Hon. Theodore
Frelinghuysen, Rev. Ashmael Green, Mr.
Barnwell, of South Carolina, arid a committee
of gentlemen of Ohio, of a highly interesting
After the reading of the letters, the Rev.
Henry Slicer, of this city, arose and asked
whether it was the intention of the Enrolling
Committee to publish all these letters and pa
pers in the proceedings of the Convention.—
The Rev. Justin Edwards was then understood
to state in reply, that tho letters and papers
would he referred to the Coinniitteo, to publish
all or such portions as in their wisdom may
seen best.
The Rev. Mr. Atwood, of Philadelphia, road
a long and well written address from the Stand
ing Committee to the people of the United
States, which ho prefaced by a few remarks.—
The address was adopted, and will be publish
ed in the regular proceedings of tho Conven
tion, by the committee appointed for that pur
The Standing Committee reported a resolu
tion in substance, that it be recommended to
the government of tho United States to order
the discontinuance of the drilling of the soldier
companies of the Army on tho Sabbatli. The
resolution was adopted.
The Committee also roportod a resolution to
the effect, that it he recommended to the Evan
gelical Ministers throughout the United States
to preach on a given day, to the congregation
under their charge, a sermon on the more strict
observance of the Lord's day. The resolution
was adopted.
I Tho Committee also reported a resolution,
1' that a Finance Committee of five be appointed
■ to take charge of all money belonging to the
i Convention, and to superintend and publish the
• proceedings. The expenses to be paid out ot
II the money in their possession. The resolution
■ j was adopted, and the committee consists ol
Messrs. J. G. fiamncr, B. Kurtz, R. G. Arin
: strong, Fielder Israel, and C. W. ltidgley.
The Committee also reported a resolution
that it bo recommended to the members of the
Convention to leave their address with the En
rolling Committee, so that the proceedings of
: the Convention, when published, should be
sent to them. The resolution was adopted.
In tho course of the morning an informal de
bate sprung up between the Rev Henry Slicer,
of this city, and Rev. Mr. Danforth, of Alexan
dria, which would in all probability have proved
of an exciting character, but for tho well-timed
land Christian remarks of the Rev. 11. V. I),
j Johns, of this city, and Mr. Parker, of New
York, which acted like "oil cast, upon the
troubled waters."
! A list was read of the travelling routes on
j which the rates had been reduced in favor of
membersofthe Convention. It embraced near
i ly all in tho vicinity of Baltimore,
j Tho Rev. T. If. Stockton offered a resolu-
I tion in relation to disseminating publications
j encouraging the observance of the Sabbath
j day.
I Mr. R. 1 jommon rose to offer a report, ox
| pressive of his views and objects in the part lie
| took yesterday in the proceedings of tho Con
i venlion. Ho spoko some time in explanation
1 of his opinions on tho subject of the differences
| between himself and the Convention. llc also
I staled that his views had been misrepresented
I in some of the newspaper reports.
Mr. Cross replied, and as the discussion
I seemed likely to become excited, several mem
[ bers interfered and it was arrested,
j Mr. Adams, the venerable President, then
rose and stated that as lie purposed going to
Washington this evening, he would not again
be present in the Convention He would, there
fore, renew tho expression of his thanks for tho
honor done him, in selecting him to preside
over the Convention. He also expressed his
great gratification in listening to the discussions
that had taken place, and he had no doubt tho
most favorable results would be produced by
the proceedings on the occasion. These results
| would tend still further to confirm the momora
j ble declaration of that great man, Mr. Dupon
j cean, that the United States were in advance
! of every other Nation in the world in its ob
j servance and regard for the Sabbath. He then
I took leave of the Convention.
' On motion, a resolution of thanks, for the
I able and satisfactory manner in which the Pre-
I sident had performed his duties, was passed,
i when tho Convention adjourned, to meet again
j at 3 o'clock.
| In the absence of the President of the Con
i vention, the Hon. John Q. Adams, the Ist Vice
I President, Judge Hall, of Delaware, presided.
| Prayer by the Rev. Mr. Ringfair.
[ The standing committee reported the f'ol-
I lowing resolutions, which were unanimously
| adopted:
Resolved, That the thanks of this convention
be given to the Trustees of the congregration
worshipping in this house, for the use of the
house, and for all the accommodations which
they have furnished during the session of this
Resolved, That the thanks of this convention
be tendered to the families in Baltimore, who
have kindly opened their houses for the accom
modation and generous entertainment of most
of the members of this convention.
Resolved, That the assistance which the ve
nerable John Q. Adams, late President of the
United State, has rendered to tho objects of* this
convention, in the able, dignified and kind man
ner in which he bus presided over our delibera
tions, and in the testimony which he has borne
to the importance of the Sabbath, to the social,
civil and religious interests of our country, de
serves and receives our greatful acknowledge
ments, and that the Secretaries bo directed to
transmit to him, with our earnest desire, for
his health, usefulness and happiness, that wheu
he shall have done with the tilings of the
world, he may bo prepared for, and be received
to, that rest which rcmaineth for the people of
After the adoption of the above resolutions,
there being no business before the Convention,
short addresses upun the general subject of the
due observance of the Sabbath, were delivered
by the Ilcv. Mr. Eddy, of New Jersey, the Rev.
Mr. Longinore, of Penn., and A. Child, Esq.,
attorney at law, of this city.
Our limits will not allow us to give oven a
synopsis of the speeches of the above gentlo
men, yet we cannot pass over this portion of
the proceedings without saying that the re
marks of Mr. Child were of that peculiar and
impressive nature which came home to tho
hearts and understanding of all who heard him.
He spoke for about thirty minutes, and was
listened to with profound attention.
At the conclusion of the addresses, Dr.
Boardrnan, of Philadelphia, took tho floor, and
urged the Standing Committee to the Conven
tion for its action. The resolution of Dr. B.
was, in substance, that as the Congress of the
United States had more than once sat upon
the Sabbath day, and the approaching session
being what is generally known as the short
one, it was more than probable they would
again encroach upon it. He wished a vote of
this Convention condemning the act, and ap
pealing to them, as law-makers of tho land, to
set a good example to their constituents.
In the absence of the Chairman of the Com
mittee, Dr. Eddy rose to explain the cause
which influenced tho committee in not report
ing the resolution. Among other reasons, ho
was understood to say, that it would be putting
themselves in conflict with the law of the land.
Their object was to accomplish the great good
they aimed at by moral suasion. It was also
feared by the passage of the resolution, it would
be the cause of opposition by one or tho other
of the great political parties of tho day.
Dr. Boardrnan, in reply, stated that as it was
not the intention of the committee to report
the resolution, he would be forced to move a
suspension of the rule, to enable him to get it
before the Convention. Tho motion was deba
ted by Messrs. Eddy, Boardrnan, Edwards, and
Campbell, when it was moved to lay the mo
tion of Dr. Boardrnan on tho tablo, which mo
tion was decided in the negative. The motion
of Dr. Boardrnan being now fairly before tho
Convention, gave rise to much debute, pending
which, tlio hour of 5 o'clock having arrived,
the Convention adjourned.
The Convention assembled at 7 o'clock.
Judge Hall, Ist vice president, in the chair.—
Prayer, by the Rev. William Hamilton.
The unfinished business of the afternoon ses
sion, being the motion of Dr. lioardman, was
taken up, when the Rev. Mr. Brainard, of
Philadelphia, offered a substitute for the origi
nal resolution, which ho thought would meet
the views of all parties. A motion was made
and carried, to lay the substitute and original
resolution on the table. Dr. Boardman then
offered tho following resolution, witli a' ( view to
carry out the object of the first resolution.
Resolved, That this Convention express
their deep regret, that the National Legislature
and other Legislative bodies should, in several
instances within the last few years, have deem
ed it expedient to continue their sessions
through a part of the Sabbath; and they cher
ish the hope that all our Legislative bodies
may hereafter abstain from the transaction of
business on that day.
The discussion became highly interesting,
and was participated in by Messrs. Slieer, Coo
per, McDowell, Child, Mitchell, Bond, Bry
an, (lon. Chambers, of Pa., and others':
The remarks of the Rev. Mr. Slicer in favor
of, and those of (Jen. Chambers in opposition
to, the resolution, were of an eloquent and in
teresting character, and were listened to by
the large crowd present with great attention.
[The convention was still in session when we
went to press last night, but a final adjournment
had been determined upon.]
[Knrthe American Republican.J
MESSRS. EDITORS —The noble and patriotic
stand you have adopted in the American Re
publican cause, and the readiness with which
you publish any communication 011 that groat
question, is deserving of tho highest piaise,
and no doubt will be rightly appreciated by
every true lover of his country, whether na
tive or adopted. Under these considerations I
beg leave to offei a few remarks, hoping you
will give thein a favorable reception. Numer
ous plans have been suggested as to the best
mode of protecting our elective franchise pure
from the contaminating influence of foreign
powers, and to prevent the rapid increase of
voters, which must be the grand object of all
true Americans; but amongst all the various
plans proposed there is none better in my opin
ion, than the one suggested by your corres
pondent of the 22d instant, in which the writer
proposes, that let the extension be what it may
as to immigrant be allowed to vote
for three years after receiving his naturalization
papers. Such a measure would effectually
prevent any party from courting the favors of
naturalized citizens, as there would be no im
mediate prospect of securing their votes. 1
agree with the same writer in what he affirms,
that each party has knowingly abused the pri
vilege of the naturalization laws, to the dis
grace of America. Under these views, how
can we conscientiously blame immigrants for
taking advantage of tho law, when they are
encouraged by those calling themselves Ameri
cans'! Shame on such men, 1 would say, who
for the sake of party purposes, would trifle
with our most sacred rights. They are riot
worthy of being freemen, it is evident to
every candid mind that we, ourselves, are to
blame for tho numerous evils practised on the
ballot box by foreigners; lor who would blame
the drowning man for taking hold of the rope
held out to him for his preservation! Such is
precisely the case with the immigrant. The
fault is in ourselves, who made the law which
grants him the privilege; and we must remedy
the evil ouiselves. We have the energy arid
ability to accomplish any tiling we undertake:
why then do we not set about the work of re
formation at once? Let ward meetings be cal
led; distinguished men invited to give their
views on the subject; resolutions framed and
put into practice, and the work will be done.
Our forefathers were not so tardy at the com
mencement of the revolutionary struggle.—
Let us emulate our noble sires in the good
cause, and success will crown our efforts.

through the Canal to Delawa e City, in first class
Packet Boats, commanded by gentlemanly and expe
rienced Captains, and thence by the splendid Steamer

The public are assured that (notwithstanding the
false reports in circulation, of this line having been
stopped,) it is, and will be continued, and no exertion
spared to give comfort and speed to passengers. The
only change that has hem made is in placing the
Steamboat PIONEER on this line in the stead of the
Steamboat Portsmouth, because of a popular Preju
dice (justly founded) against this last named boat.
Mr. Rees has been all along and still is the Agent, in
Philadelphia, of the only Opposition Line.
Line is run by a "Monopolizing Campany" for the j
purpose of putting down the regular opposition. If |
