Here the blood h nods ut Saui ' pur tie hjkI find him ; hut, behold the pow er of God! They are turned into lamb.-, f r “ when the messengers of‘S.*ul saw the coin pany of j: oj Uet» prophesying, at.d Sunurl standing »s appointed over them, the sj >.d ol G.hI wav upon the messengers of S *ul an i * they also prophesied.” Surprising change It is g v>d to " Wad at \vi-sdjm‘s gates, *nd watch at the posts of her doors,*’ f >r there frequently “ the Lord ccmmmulfc tlie bless ing,” even upon those led there by curiosi , ty, yea by mdice. Hardened Saul, uncon vinced, unsubdued, studs a second, and a third time. The event however is the same. , j They all unite with the inspired company in ' shouting praises to the God of Israel. .At ' length baul, probably suspicious of the fidel ity of his servants, or charging them with weakness and enthusiasm, undertakes the task himself; when lo ! before he reaches the place he also begins to prophecy, strips < oil the royal robe, and prostrate on the ! ground tor a whole day and night is con- : strain'd by supernatural agency to become a prephet too. Well might the proverbial j phrase “ I> Saul also among the prophets !“ ; take its rise hum tins strange tW-.nl. The phrvse has its point at this day. Men, carnal and wicked as Saul thrust themselves into the bosom of the church, and even into the sacred office. They perhaps obtain gifts, popularity and success—they ate changed, but not sanctified. They ape the converts* t ion of good men, but their hearts approve not the tilings that ate more excellent This subject affotds two profitable reflec tions. It teaches us to consider no r.mn a chnmian from his words orny. These are often deceptive. Actions are the only sure test of integrity. It farther leaches us the power of God over the hearts of ins enemies, ruling all things according to his own pitas, ute, bringing good out d evil, and order out of con fusion. E. 3!nfcresting political ^©tsccllanp. FOR THE POIU'L/.XD GAZETTE, Mr. blllUI.EY, HAVING perused 4 The American Annual Register for If96,’* a little tur ther, I now send you a few more ex trrets. 1 cJo not wish that they should ! exclude better matter, but they may be ; published when in your wisdom you may tninfc best. “ One reason why this country should be highly solicitous to augment the number and protect the lights other; seamen is the difficulty with which an i able mariner is lormcd By land, a man may learn tnc military exercise in a lew months, and experience, and tiie example oi veterans will soon make him a tolerable soldier. But by sea the case is quite different. Many years are requisite for accomplishing a skill- J iul navigator ; and even a common sal j lor to be moderately useful must be tar longer in training than a common sol dier. i bis is tlie reason why it liasal ways been so hard a task for any na* tion to become suddenly a great mari • time power. With abundance of men j and money, a formidable army can, by due attention, always be created in two or three years. But unless a country ; has previously possessed an extensive ( trade by sea, and a trade carried on in her own bottoms, it is utterly impossi ble lor her to forma navy. Without such a trade, no degree of wealth or j population can raise it. I his explains the anxiety which Britain has always discovered to augment the number of her sailors. Unless she cun support merchantmen to educate and supply her navy with skilful mariners, the na vy itself is ol no value ; and even after precaution oh this head, she is often reduced to a distressing scarcity of hands. What renders the French so remark* j ably inferior in naval engagements to the Btitinu ? It is admitted that their ships of war are bettei built, than those of England. It will no longer be said ! as it often has been, that they want 1 courage. The French artillery is the best conducted in Europe. Were then we ha\c excellent ships, brave men, and skilful gunners, J tie only reason for their bad success is want of good seamen. The supeiior wisdom, vigi* ; lence, and resources of the new govern incut [not Bonaparte’s military govern ment] will in times supply this defect, but it must require the gradual exer* ( lions of several years. If America has » a great number of merchantmen in ser ! vice, she can, when necessary, become, i a formidable enemy onthe ocean. Her | marine strength in war is exactly pro portioned to the number of her b. ttoms in time of peace. II sides, the more seamen ahe has, the lower other nations can have, since her shipping perform the voyages which, it they weie laid up. would he made by others. Whatever adds to her strength by sea, weakens in an equal proportion her rivals or en emies, and thus a ten 1 d advantage is gained for the independence and secur ity t>f the union. On this account her ' mariners, more perhaps than ary other i class of citizens, are entitled to her pe culiar protection. Many people have 1 thought that if the commerce of this 1 country should be earned on entirely 1 i by foreign bottoms, like that of the Chinese empire, it would be of equal advantage to the continent, and that citizens, who now a6t as sailors, might be as profitably employed as landsmen i in other occupations. The opinion has a plausible appearance, but attentive re* flection will discover its inaccuracy. In China, labor is ten times cheaper than here, so that if tea were to grow in Massachusetts it would be less expen sive to export it from that empire than to gather it at home. China is crowded ! with manufacturing towns, and the low rate of wages makes it impossible lor foreigners to import manufactures in \ any great quantity. In America, every ; thing is at present the reverse.” J. B. i ROM HIE SPIRIT OF SEVENTY SIX. John Randolphs Address IO HIS CONS fl T CENTS.
