While Anti-Slavery So cieties call on all legislators who have pow er 'over slavery to abolish it without delay, t! ?y urge upon the conscience of each indi vidual slaveholder the duty of instantly re linquishing his sacrilegious grasp upon God's image. The effrontery of the Chron icle, in making this groundless assertion is ntolerable is most astounding.

Mr. Editor: The Great Head of the Church has appeared in merer and af forded us a rich and extensive blessing m Hartford. During the last fire years, this church has been unhed and happy; and has been constantly, though gradually increasing in numbers and strength. The benevo lent movements of the day, (ratheT than the distressing excitements,) have received our co-operation and support. During a few months past, wc have experienced some peculiar ensauon, in view of the condition of impenitent sin ners. About the fif3t of April, we com menced a meeting which continued about three weeks in the village, and during the next week we held meetings in different districts in town, afternoons and evenings The church waked up to duty ; back sliders confessed and turned to Zion : and sinners were converted to God. The preaching-, prayermeetings and meetings of enquiry werr all of the most . t J r J I interesting cnaracier. uou luvorea n:s dear people with an unusual spirit of p-nyer, and with immediate answers, in the conversion of souls. Convicted per sons have called t the house of the pas tor by day and bv night, to solicit the prayers of the ministers ; and bving in structed, and exhorted to consecrate them selves to God without delay, while we were all prostrate before God in p'sver, most of them obtained evidence of" bein accepted of Him. During the meeting's of inquiry in the sanctuary, companies, one after another, came forward and kneeled before the altar for prayers, and in each group some Ap peared to have been converted. On the same Lord's day in April, we baptized twenty-four happy converts ; the next Sabbath, fourteen ; and yesterday nine making in all forty-seven, which together with some added by letter gives us an increase of more than fifty persons since the commencement of the revival. The scenes at the water have been pe culiarly interesting. There we saw the veteran of the revolution, kneeling and praying that himself and associates in re ceiving the ordinance might be strength ened to become good soldiers of Jesus Christ. There also was one of Wel lington's men, peaceable as a lamb. The enterprising merchant, the honorable far- mer, me active meensnic likewise a precious company of devoted females were not ashamed to be immersed, as was their Ixrd and Master. A few were brought in at the eleventh hour; bui most of the converts were in the morninc of life manv voun? mar- ried people who came, as anciently into Noah's ark, two by two. Thirteen were males who were heads of families. Others are expecting to come forward, next Lord's day. Neighboring churches have shared in the good work. The preaching was mostlv done bv brethren J. H. Dwver. and Averv of the Congregational church in Granville. It was plain, solemn and scriptural. The 1 a Liota bless them. But I am occuDvinff too much of your columns. Suffice it to sav. when the meeting closed more than one hundred persons were rejoicing in fresh hopes in Christ; and as we attended meetings in different parts of the town, we found over a hundred more who were willing to ac knowledge thev were concerned about the salvation of their souls. The converts generally take a good stand, speak and pray in our meetings, and give full evidence that they love Christ and his cause. What a great mercy that God, in his providence, has checked the rage of spec ulation, that the churches can again af ford time, and possess inclination to at tend to revivals of religion ! H. F.

LOSS OF THE STEAMER BEN ShKR- kP- Dreadful Steamboat Disaster Seldom have we been called on to record a disaster in which the sacrifice of human life has been so great.

It is lamentable that he cannot give an account of the precious work oi the Holy Spirit, without stopping in the introduction and turning aside to give back-handed blows in tne dark.

We will not however, at present, keep the attention long rpon his digression, and away from the main subject of his commu nication. But we are curious to know what, in brother Baldwin's estimation, have been the " benevolent movements " of the "last five years," and what the "oisthess- ihq excitements?''1 To bring all to the light then at once according to our own understanding of the matter not allowing ourself to remain longer behind the curtain with the brother we suppose that Ttmper ance, carried to the limit, is in our brother's estimation a most benevolent movement Anti-Slavery a distressing e.rcilemenl ! This present supposition rests on knowl edge of his former vievs and feelings. vigorously in Arracan. He has to con tend with great ignorance and stupidity, but he is not a man to turn his back upon difficulties, or grow faint in a good work. Mr. Webb and Howard are in Rangoon. They have had many interruptions, from persecution and ill-health. Mr. Webb speaks the language well, and has preach ed a great deal in Rangoon, and has made more excursions in the neighboring towns and villages than all the other missicna nes who have lived in that city. Like me, for nearly a year and a halt he has had no native assistant, and consequently has la bored under the greatest disadvantage. While I was in Rangoon, in April last, thirty Karens were baptized, and more than r hundred wished to be admitted to that ordinance. Mr. and Mrs. Vinton spend most of their time among the Ka- . A i rr a 1 rens north or Aiauimem. i neir moors are greatly blessed. Mr. and Mrs. Ben nett have charge of the government schools, which promise great good to the province. Messrs. Judson, Hancock, and Osgood, have charge of the- printing office. Mr Judson preaches to the native church there. Mr. Abbott and Mr. Haswell are studying the language. Mr. Wade and Mr. Mason are very laborious, They have formed a dictionary of the Karen lan guage, have written several tracts and school-books, aud are now translating the scriptures. Besides this they have preach ed extensively through the whole prov ince, have baptized a good many, and have several schools. Thus I have told you all I can in one short letter, of the dif ferent stations, and the present state of things here. Mr. and Mrs. Simons joined us some months ago. Mrs. Simons has been very ill, and their two children have suffered much. We have a great many visitors at our house from one'o two hundred in a day. Among them are some promising inquirers. On the 5th of July we had the very- great pleasure of welcoming Mr. Malcom, agent of the Board. Knowing my situation, he brought with him my old assistant, Ko Shoon : so that I am quite overjoyed. He is a good man, and very taithful. He preached to the people who come to our house a part of the time, so than am able to make excursions about the rity, and preach to groups of people in temples, zayats, and sometimes m pri vate houses. The call for books and tracts has been greater this year than any for- onTco m.u a iiiu k or uox, and were drowned; many more it is feared were burned to death. Few even of those now living would have survived, had not the steamer Columbus, Capt. Jones, come to their assistance. A number were picked up, but a greater number sunk before nid could reach them. The steamer States man also picked up six or seven. So rapid was the spread of the fire, and so destitute were those on board of all rreans of escape, that nothing could be saved, not even the registei of the boat; so that il is impossible to say how many were lost, or what were their names. The passengers and crew a mounted to over 160. Only 50 or 60 were saved. Altogether this has been one of the most serious disasters that has harmened in the annals of Mississippi steamboats: there being at least one hundred and fifty r. j j i idimnra uepnveo oy it ot some dear and beloved member over nnp hnnr t.o. ings hurried by it out of time into eternity, wun scarce a moment warn in r. And amongst those who are .saved many are said to be severely burnt ; some, so much so, that their recovery is verv donhtf.il We understand that 3 different explo sions took place on board the boat whilst burning first, barrels of whisky, brandy, &c, then the boilers blew up, with a fear ful explosion, and lastly, 39 barrels of gunpowder exploded which stre.ved the surface of the river with fragments. It is insufferable that such dangerous articles as powder and spirits should be received on board steamboats, designed to carry passengers. Severe penal laws ought to be passed to prevent it. Ar. Y. Evan. Texas. A correspondent of the N. Y. Daily Express writes from New Orleans. under date of May 13. The little business we hare beendoinff for some time past was with Texas and Mexico, but the Texian land speculators have almost put a stop to both. They have pushed the few schooners we had trading with Texas among the Mexican Ei rates yes, they have done more, they ave pushed upwards of 300 of our fellow citizens into their cahnons mouths, 140 of whom were wrecked on the coast of Texas, and left naked and destitute of eve ry thing some twenty of whom have found their way back here, swearing ven geance against those who thus deceived them. Great indignation prevails thro' our the community at this base conduct. Some say, the false news, the greatest cause of all this, wasmade up and publish ed in New-York others blame a Mr. Somebody, a speculator here, connected with a paper published in ISew-York no doubt when the upwards of 200 poor inno cent victims, now prisoners of the Mex icans, regain their liberty, they will in quire into it. General Felix Houston has been recall ed to join the Texian army. He has gone from Natchez, via Red River, with sever al volunteers accomnanvin? him. The question arises, is he going to fight the Mexicans or the indians ? I rather sus pect that he will have to do the latter first, as the Indians are expected soon to comt down in a body, and take possession of at least the upper part of that fine country. Indeed, they have begun already, by com mitting depredations and several murders. I am lately from that part and I would advise every one who intends emigrating to Texas to furnish himself with provis ions, fire-arms, and ammunition, for his own protection, and he may also calcu late to have military duty to perform, as I believe they have more need of a stand ing army stationed to keep back the Indi ans than the Mexicans.

Dear Sir I am happv in- b able to state that so far as our knowledge extends, tranquility prevails throughout the Republic. Much is expected from Bustamente who is elected President. It was hoped he would restore public confi dence. x The war vith Texas is to be renewed, backed by a loan often millions of dollars, two millions of which have already been negotiated by the government with the bouse of Rubio, duintana, Ajruerro, and others, whose names are withheld from the public. They are to be secured bv paper on the custom houses to be founded on duties to the exclusion of former issues of the government. The U. S. government and citizens are in bad odor with'the Mexican author ities, and it is notthought the United States will be able to obtain the satisfaction expected for grievances which they have experienced, and it is doubtful whether a representative of the government will be received at court Affairs 1 hope will present a more fa vorable aspect;, when General Bustamente takes office. He is a gentlemanly, cour teous and well informed man, has seen much of the world, and doubtless profited much by his travels. I am inclined to think him liberal in his sentiments and he will exert himself to conciliate the friendship of foreign nations, and to com pose the conflicting elements of his own. N. U.

The suspension of business of all kinds, by rea son ot want of confidence in those banks which do not redeem their bills with spe cie, would bea great calamity; one which we are certainly disposed to do all in onr power to prevent. We find, how ever, that there is. cenerallr. a want of confidence in the banks, as there is in in dividuals, tinder like circumstances : and we believe that the only way to keep op their credit, daring the suspension of spe cie payments, is for the stockholders to pWge their pritaU property for the re demption of their bills.
