V E R M O N T- TELE GRAPH. Vol. IX.... No. 16....Jan. 11, 1837. POETRY. For the Telegraph. T Mr. amd Mrs". Pendleton, ON THE DEATH OF THEIR DAUGHTER. 11 She glanced into this world to fee A sample of oar misery Her tender spirit sigh'd, to view So much of pain, and grief, and woe. " She tasted of lifes bitter cop, Refus'd to drink the portion up ; Then turn'd her littJe head aside, Disgusted with the taste, and died." "Sweet babe no more, but seraph now, Before the throne, behold her bow; Her soul, enlarg'd to angel's size, Joins in the triumph's of the skies ;" "Adores the grace that brought her there, Without a wish, without a care ; That wash'd her soul in Calvry's stream, And shortenM life's distressing dream." V Short pain, short grief, dear bar were thine. New joys eternal and divine Then why should 1 for Susan mourn, Since Christ the Savior call'd her home. O she is there, a seraph bright, . Ranging the Gelds of pure delight; And with a golden harp in hand, She joins in praise, the heavenly band. No more, my lovely child.no more, Shall I behold thee as before ; thy" sainted soul of heavenly birth, Is now too pure to dwell on earth. Farewell, sweet babe, till time shall cease, Go dwell with Christ, in perfect peace; And oo that bright celestial morn, Thou shalt arise, a glorious form. What beauty then, will deck thy crown, What glory beaming from the throne; More ovely than on earth could be, O I I will weep no more for thee. W. G. J.

Having stated on page -Having 13, that the Christians of the first two in detestation," said he, "the worship of centuries refused taking any part in the I your Gods: Gods that are made of wood war, on account of its inconsistency with ' and stone; Gods which are deaf and the spirit of Christianity ; to confirm that j dumb :" and adds, " it is not lawful for a statement, I subjoin the following extracts christian who is the servant of Christ the from the writings of the primitive chi is- Lord, to bear arms for any earthly con tinr.s, as quoted by Thomas Clarkson. j sideration." He was confined more than Justin the Martyr, one of the earliest ; three months in prison, and thenexecu writers of the second century, says, " the ted. devil is the author of all war." A se- ! vere sentence, and made even at a time t when wars were considered the most honourable profession, and leading to plorv. Tatian, and Clemens of Alaxandria, men of high standing, speak decidedly j against the lawfulness ol war. j Tertullian strongly condemned the practice of bearing aims, as it related to Christians, saying, in his " dissertation on the worship of idols," "though the sol diers came to John, and receivtd a certain form to be observed ; and the centurion believed, yet Chtift by disarming Peter, disarmed every soldier afterwards: for custom never sanctions an illicit act." And in his "soldier's garland," he says, ,4 can a soldier's life te lawful, when Christ has pronounced, that he who lives by the sword shall perish by the sword? And shall he, who is not to avenge his own wrongs, be instrumental in bringing others into chains, imprisonment, tor ments, death ?" Cyprian, in his epistle to Donatus, af ter observing on the dismal prospect of seas beset with pirates, highways with robbeis, encampments, narches, and all the terrible forms of war and bloodsht d, says, " when a single murdtr is commit ted, it shall be det med a crime ; but that crime shall commence a viitue when com mitttd under the shelter of public author ity ; so that punishment is not rated by the measure of guilt, but the more enor mous the size of the wickedness, so much greater the chance for impunity." Liactamius, who lived some time after Cyprian, in his treatise concerning the true worship of God ; says, " it can never be lawful for a righteous man to go to war, whose warfare is unrighteousness itself." And again, " it can never be lawful to kill a man, whose person the Divine Being designed to be sacred, as to violence." Origen, Archilaus, Ambrose, Chrysos tom Jerome.Cyril and inJeed, every chris tian writer of the second century, who no tices the subject of war, makes it awful for christians. The-e were the sentiments of the early christians ; what was their practice ? Ter tulliau, in his discourse to Scapula, tells us, that in ihe wars between the Emperor Veru?, and Avidius Drassus, and those of the Emperor Severus, with Clodius Albi nus, between the years, 169 andl98, no christians were to be found in these ar mies, though they were largely extended, and Christianity had reached to all the pla ces in which these armies were. Clemens of Alexandria, gives the chris tians of his day, the appellation of" peace able, or the followers of nenre1' Thn j ... , . distinguishing them from the soldiers of nis aire and savs pvnrocoi.r his age ; and says expressly, that those w no were tne lollowers ot peace, used none of the instruments of war. Athanagorus and other early writers, remark, that the christians in their time, abstained when they were struck, from' striking again, and even refused to go to law with those who injured them. Thev also kept away from the shows of the gla diators, giving it as a reason, " lest we should become partakers of the murders committed there' A case of refusal to fight, as recorded by Ruinart, is to the point. Maximilian, a young man, being biought before the tribunal in order to be enrolled as a sol dier, Dion the proconsul, asked him his name: Maximilian replied, " why wouldst thou know my name, 1 am a christian, and cannot fight." On his refusal to com-' ply, still assetting he was a christian ! JJ.on replied, 44 bear arms or thou shalt ' die . to which the youth replied, " I can- not fight if I die, I am not a soldier of this I worm, dui asomier ol Uod." Dion said ' who has persuaded thee to behave thu 't" I Maximilian answered, "my own mind ! ana ne wno called me." Dion comman- ded, t4take thy arms, and receive the mark." " 1 can receive no such marb '! says Maximilian, " I have already the mark of Christ." Upon which Dion re plied," I will send thee quickly to thy Chiist." Thou mayest do so," answered Maximilian, but the glory will be mine." Dion then bade the officer mark hjiri but Maximilian still persisted in refusion' and spoke thus : "lama christian, andlt is not lawiui to wear such a mark, when I have received the mark ofthe Lord Je sus Christ, tne son ot the living God, who died to giveus iiie. Him all we chris tians obey : him we follow as the restorer of our life, and the author of our salva tion." Dion said, 44 consider thy youth and bear arms: the profession of arms be comes a young man." He replied, my arms are with the Lord ; I cannot fight for any earthly consideration : I am now a christian." After farther expostulating with him. but in vain, Dion ordered his name to be struck off the roll ; and then delivered the following sentence; " Maximilian, be cause thou hasf, with a' rebellious spirit, refused to bear arms, thou art to die by the sword." This conscientious young man replied, " thanks be to God." Thus nobly did a youth of 20 years of age, bear testimony ag-ainst war. I And as the early christians would not tian faith was embraced by some while in them, they relinquished the profession of arms. Marcellus was a centurion in the legion called Trajana. On a festival, he threw down his military belt, at the head of the legion, declaring that he would no longer serve in the army; for that he had become a christian. 1 hold TEMPERANCE. WlXIiUKINICIIVG. We invite the attention of all wine drinkers to the following extract of a speech, by professor Goodrich, of Yale college, before the Connecticut State Tem- perance Convention " Had I been called three years ago to express my views of the subject, they would probably have been different from those 1 entertain at present. I am now astonished that I did not take higher grounds. But changes have since taken place, uf immediate importance. The in quiry has shown that the cause of intem perance are situated farther back than is generally supposed. I had a widow's son committed to my particular care. He was heir to a great estate. He went through the different stages of his educa tion, and finally left Yale college with a good moral character, and bright pros pects. But during the course of his edu cation he had heaid the sentiment advan ced, which 1 then supposed correct, that the use of wine was not only admissible, but a real auxiliary to the temperance cause. After he had left the collep-e for a few years he continued to be respectful to me. At length he became reserved and the next I heard was, he rushed one night, unceremoniously, into mv room, and his api earanre told the dreadful se cret. He said he came to talk with me. He had been told during his senior J'ear, that it was safe to drink wine, and by that idea he had been ruined. I asked "him if his mother knew this. He said no, he had crefully concealed the secret from her. I asked him if he was such a slave that he could not abandon the habit ? Talk not to me of slaveryvsaid he, I am ruined, and befoie I go to ' bed, I shall quarrel with the bar-keeper of the Tontine, for brandy or gin to sate my burning thirst In one month, this young man was in Km grave. It went to my heart. Wine is the cause of ruin to a great proportion of the young men in our country. Another consideration i3 that the habits of convivi alty and hospitality are now directed to the use of wine. Once it was the use of distilled liquor. Toddy and sling, and bitters were the fashion. Another fact. Breweries are increas ing, millions of capital, much of it is chan ged from ether uses have been employ ed in this business. You have put out the fires of the distillery, and lighted the fires of the breweries. But drunkenness from beer as seen in England, is as bad as drunkenness from anything else. 'You give up your wine, and I will i y i v w v i u in, oa v a me uiuiu urin Ker. j One Mr. G. said he would not yield to . , . J give up my rum,' says the dram drinker. this now he thinks he ought, for the sake of checking intempeiance. He would not speak for others but for him it would be a sin to do otherwise. MISCELLANEOUS. From Ziun't Watchman. Dr. Good's Testimony. In Good's Book of Nature, published by Harper and Bothers, of this city, page we have the following testimony : " It may appear singular, perhaps, that I have taken no notice of the wide differ ence which is supposed to exist in the in tellectual faculties of the diflerent varie ties of man. To confess the truth, I have nurnoselv omitted it ; because of all the arguments that have ever been ofleied to support the doctrine of different species, this appears 10 me lhe feeblest and most superficial. may Su'1 tne narrow purpose of the slave merchant, ot a trafficker in human nerves and muscles, of a wretch, who in equal defiance ofthe feelings and the laws ol the day, has the impudence to offer for sale, on the polluted shores of our own country, in one and the same lot, as was the case not Ion? since, a dead came leon ard and a living Hottentot woman ; it may . . i . i . . j sun ineir purpose io inirouuce such a dis tinction into their creed, and to let it con stitute the whole of their creed, but it is a distinction too trifling and evanescent to claim the notice ol a physiologist for a mo ment I have not learned that the publishers above named, have ever had to apologize ior tne puDiicauon oi tnis work, or to de fend themselves from any attack on this account. Possibly the chivalrous south erners have not yet spied out the above paragraph. W New-York, Nov. 17, 1836.

Conversational Intercourse ttith the sexes.- What makes those men, v associate habitually with women, si;pt1, or to others? What makes that won en who is accustomed to, and at ease in ;,! company of men, superior to her sex n general 1 Why are the women of Fr,?r.c so universally admired and loved for tUir colloquial powers 1 Solely because tlv are in the habit of a free, graceful, continual conversation with the other sex Women in this way lose their frivolity, their faculties awaken, their delicacu? and peculiarities finfold all their beauties and captivation in the spirit of intellectual rivalry ; and the men lose their pedantic, rude, declamatory, or sullen manner. The coin of the understanding and the heart i? interchanged continually ; their aspt rities are rubbed ofl- thtir better materials j cl ashed and brightened and their richm ?s like fine gold, is wrought into finer woifc rpanship by the fingers of women, ihan i: ever could be by the fingers of men.

In 1698, according i0 Fletcher of Saltoun, there were in Scot land more than 100,000 people beg pr g from door to door, and all living , wit! out regard to the laws of Gcd or man mur. ders, and every species of disorder, and vice, and crime, being very rorr.mfn among them.y At that time the whole f ey. ulation of the country did not excud 1,000,000. In the course of 67 vts such an entire change has been wt cught, tnrougn ipe influence oi religious irs uc tion, that, at the autumn circuits in 1757, not a single person in all the couutry was found guilty of any capital crime. In the time of Howard, w hen the rop:. lation of Scotland was 1,600,000. en 144 persons were convicted of carit; ; .1 i.i crimca iu a prriuu ui rj years oemg, on an average, 7 in each year; whi.'e, in the same period, in the "single ciicuit oi Norfolk, England, containing 800.0'DO persons, (besides 87 transported.) no !ss than 360 were condemned to derh. which is an annual average cf 1?. Hence it is evident, that, taking the cc parativ population into view, rrrre ttan five crimes were committed in Ens-lend to one in Scotland. The late Sir Her.ry Fielding, when speaking of the ifuct cf sober religious education on the morris and conduct cf the lower classes, s:s (d, that duringthe whole of his Ions adnvn-' istration as one of the justices'" of Be street, only six Scotchmen were ever brought before him for trial. Facts like these need no comment, o show most conclusively the important cf rei.gious instruction in a national point of view. , Editorial Troubles.
