But what is the love of country, if oppos ed toNthe law of Christ, but a blind and selfish attachment to that particle of earth on which we happen to live? The be nevolence of a christian mind is not con fined within such narrow limits ; he views all the inhabitants of the earth, in the light of immortal and accountable beings: he considers them as his brethren ; and his language is, "far better for me to "resign whatever I possess, than that one human being should be destroyed in its defence. All worldly enjoyments are tri fles in my estimation, when compared with the life of one fellow creature. Sooner, therefore, than take the life of a fellow heir to immortality, and precipitate his soul into an awful eternity, let me be obliged to the character of my country men for support." Can any man, whether of public, or pri vate character, who practically loves, and does good to an enemy at home, do other wise than love his enemy in every other place ? The doctrines of the New Testa ment fix no geographical boundaries to love between man and man. All men be ing of the same Parent, are consequently brethren : who can love a brother and kill him? Doubtless, if man, in the most tried sit uation, surrounded by enemies, follow the example ofnhe persecuted Emmanuel, 'O! my Father, if this cup may not pass away except I drink it, thy will be done," though he should fall a victim to the wrath of man, yet would he triumph in death ; having the gracious promise, ' he M Christianity in its regards, steps be yond the narrow bounds of national advan tage, iq quest oi universal good ; it does not encourage particular patriotism in opposi tion to general benignity ; or prompt to love our country at the expense olour integrity or allow U3 to indulge pur passions to the' detriment of thousands. It looks upoq U the human race as children of the same fa ther, and wishes them equal bleasintr. . ; ordering them to do good, to love as brether- en, io iorgive injuries and to stojv peace it quite annihilate, the-disposition for martial glory, and utterly- debases the pomp of war." Sennorr on Isaiah U by Bishop Watson. that loses his life for my sake, shall find it" Such a man, though not lacking courage, may by some be regarded as weak and cowardly, ior noi wiring io im up his hand against the life of his fellow creature : but what then 1 Will the cen sure of a few frail, mistaken mortals di vest his innocent spirit ot the peaceful re flection, that he died without the guilt of shedding human blood ? But what will be the reflections of the man, who in the very act of slaughtering others, when wrath and revenge fill his heart, is himself in a moment hurried into eternity, to receive his final sentence from that judge who has commanded him to love his enemies, and not resist evil ! Can his reflections for doing the very re verse, be consoling? Or can a rational being suppose, that with these dispositions he can be happy in heaven, where all is peace and concord ? If not, when, where, or how is he to be divested of them? Christ has declared, " if ye die in your sins, where I go ye cannot come." It is j presumed, none will say wrath and re-) vensre are not sinful. My brethren, these are momentous considerations ! May they stimulate us to seek an inheritance in the kingdom of heaven, in preference to a vain and imaginary immortality in the applause , of men. " i One great means of keeping alive the i spirit of war, is that partiality which we j contract in our early education for the ; manners of pagan antiquity: from whence, we learn to adopt ideas of virtue, directly i opposite to '.hose which Christianity teach-! es; to be guided by laws of hono,; which ! that abhors: to imitate characters, which that details ; and to behold heroes, patriots, conquerors, and suicides with admiration, whose conduct they utterly condemn. Christians reprobate pagan immorality and idolatry, and yet adopt their errone ous ideas of virtue. Thus the conduct of Brutus in the murder of Caesar, and the action of Cato in the destruction of his own life, are extolled as virtues and hero ic deeds. Pagan ideas of morality and j virtue, are no rule for christians; because, j founded on their ignorance of Christian i enlevements, was congenial with the re-1 at,hls P!,c.e iheaTe 1)0 buers. ligion of pagans, many of whose Gods The gallant sold.ers of lews were pa.d were made out of deceased heroes, sup- theSe Treasury bills; a few of which posed to be exalted to heaven, as a rewaid i l-V ST f T' for the mischief which they had perpetra- j the cas,h for lem at a dlscount uf 80 Fer ted upon earth. Not such the religion of ccntbut at lrhe Pesent moment they can the christian ! his, seeks not applause, and j "ot PrC"re fT. em 10 cents on the dol ; o ' lar. The soldiers who have taken their juries, that it commands to forgive them, as the condition of obtaining forgiveness himself. It has been observed by some, that it is difficult to d raw the line between defen sive war, and that coercion used by the civil magistrates, in taking life on some occasions. How the civil magistrates ob tained this power, is a question worth in vestigating. The people, from whom they derive all the power they possess, have no right to take their ownlives, and consequently cannot transfer it to them. A man may transfer to others a right to control his person to regulate his con duct and exact his services ; and for these, he may receive an equivalent : but what equivalent can he receive for his life? Man's life is, therefore, his own to pre- im ou lui il will I clViil" IU lCVCUge in- ot-ivt-, uui noi io iransier, or uestroy. Mis life, his conscience, and day of probation are unalienable. I wish my fellow-citizens to examine carefully the propriety of taking life in any case. As mankind are to become christians individually, and bear their testimony a gainst evil of every kind ; they are not to remain in the practice of any thing they are convinced is wrong, because other men continue in it: therfore, a man who acts in warlike measure, contrary to his judg ment, will no more be justified in thesight of his Maker for so doing, than for theft or drunkenness. . Let those, therefore, who heve tender scruples against taking the lives of their fellow men, cherish those scruples, lest their feelings become hardened, and the avenues to the heart closed against the ten der calls of love, and they be left so to act, as finally to have the sad reflection, that contrary to their understanding, they have slam a fellow creature. May these con scientious ones remember, that if war is an evil, every step towards it, is also an evil : and it is a salutary scripture com mand, "abstain from all appearance of e vil." IThes. v. 22. MISCELLANEOUS. Temperance. Gov. Marcy, it is said, has abandoned the use of wine and all in dicating drink, and adopted the tee-total system. Several other gentlemen of high stand g and influence, in different nnTis of in state, who for a time hesitated to go the whole, have recently, we understand, sub scribed the pledge of total abstinance'fiom all that intoxicates. True principles and right practice on the subject of temperance are gaining ground among men of intelligence and moral principle. But intemperance is increasing at a most powerful rate among a very large class. They go on uncheck ed in their course. None of the present temperance measures reach them. TW are those who throng the taverns and groo shops which every where abound in the land, and are seen oft at the bars nf o,, steam boats and canal packets. Thev neither read, nor hear, nor reason on this subject. They have made up their mind to brave public opinion: and. rpfrri of character, of friends, and of future con sequences they drink on. and drink and. probably, most of them wilt drink on until they go downtoa drunkard' n-i. ' It is for their accommodation, we sup! pdfet, that so many LICRNSRa ?L i W-Q feaveth e charge of wis ousuiess.. w e say again : Th sfonsibiuty is thejrs, and it is fcuful tsuf. Spec. l Vol. Nicknames. Fewthings appear to us , more reprehensible than to. attach nick names to individuals, whether in public or private life, with the intention to excite rid icule. It is not only in bad taste but the practice in many cases' is cruel and unjust. There are many men of irreproachable manners and morals, who by having nick names appended to them in their early days, have appeared contemptible forever after. By some it is considered witty, to apply dexterously a ludicrous term of re proach to a certain individual, in conse quence of some unfortunate peculiarity in his person or habits. But this is wit of the lowest descriptionand is often close ly alliedt a black-guardism. A nickname is often the offspring of malevolence, and may be likened to the poisoned shaft aim ed at a noble antagonist by a base, cow ardly, and fly in y foe. We pity the man who can resort to such modes of 'annoy ance. Bost. Mer. Journal. l'he above remarks commend them selves to every person, as the dictates ol common sense. We hope some lnris tians who are in the habit of thoughtlessly applying nicknames to their neighbors, and even in some cases to their bretheren, Will f 1 n buked by the above remarks. May v. e i.u ask, if some parents are not faulty in Lis i spect? Do not Jo, Jim, Tom, &c. oi iginale in most cases, with parents? Children should always be called by their right names, even though they should be ten syllables in length. Zions. Her. Amen. Ed.

New Orleans alone had advanced to the Texan insurgents about a million of dollars. Its speedy repay ment was anticipated, either in money or at least lands. But instead of this mode of compensation, the Texan Treasury has issued bills, without fixing the time or manner of their payment. These bills may now be had for 25 cents on the dollar, pay in lands have been equally fortunate. The government grants specefy no loca tion they merely specify so much land but whether in Texas or in the moon, does not appear. These grants are now offer ing at New Orleans for $15 to $20! Such is the ability, the credit, and the hon esty of the Texan Government. Atlas. The Steam Whistle. Mention has been made, several times lately, of the new contrivance for giving the alarm to people who cannot be trusted to their own eyes and caution, in the vicinity of railroads. Its effect is thus described in one of our pa pers. N. Y. Spectator. 1 he locomotive has one contrivance of a most peculiar character. It carries a brass whistle, which is blown by the steam, whenever any animals come upon the track or a cross road is passed. No words can describe the shiill, wild and unearthly sound produced by this ariange ment. In going through the woods, The noise is peculiarly startling, and it can be heard for miles. Wooden Pavements. Why don't the corporation proceed with the wooden pavement in Broadway? How long do they wish to repose upon a successful ex periment? There is no pavement in the city that stands equal to that little section of wood in Broadway. The macadamised section has been " used up " over and over again, and the pavements of all sorts relaid, since the wooden blocks were laid down.

It has lately become very common for incorporated railroad and steamboat companies, to advertise conspicuously, j:i the above words, in order to screen them, selves from liability in case of the loss or miscarriage of any baggage entrusted to their care. To test the legality in regard to the operation of such an advertisement, two suits have recently been instituted against the Cathden and' Ambov Railroad Company, in both of which full and am ple damages were given for the plaintiffs. An action was tried on Tuesday of last week, in the Supreme Court, be'fore Chief Justice Jones, in which the above compa pany were defendants, and Mr. Ralzamon Belknap was plaintiff, for the recovery c; a trunk entrusted to their care for trans portation to Philadelphia. It was urged on the part of the defend ants, that the missing property had net been left in the care of any of the ageii's of the company, but was merely placed in the office while the plaintiff was paying his fare as a passenger ; the advertisement announcing that the company wc re net responsible, &c. was also read in court On the part of the plainliffit was contend ed, that although the defendants did give notice that tbey refused to be responsib'e for the loss of property falling into their possession in the regular course of their business operation, under the sanction and by the operation of their charter, yet their edicts were utterly futile and of no avail, and they were liable, both in equity and law, for the loss or destruction, under such circumstances, of any chattels or goodi belonging to other persons. In his charge to the jury the learned judge co incided with the "plaintiff's counsel, and the jury awarded dnmages in the sum of &300 for the plaintiff. So that all ba?-:ao-e is noi at the owner's risk. N. Y. Merc. Adv.
