VERMONT TELEGRAPH. 175 sition, and designed to b uch. Oa the ! other hand, if ha vat-terioui and candid, tbeo be i tapid Ignoramiw for the en timeaU of the Tclejrtpb, on the point in question," are known, ao far. at anything is correctly known of the Telegraph in con nection with the tobject. Br takinjj such views of this anonymous article we were led to call it a f upid article with how rnuch propriety, otheTS most de cide in view of the cirsutmtance. But cow that, we, have obtained, and .hold in trust the . writers name, with a diitincr avowal of a feeling, on hi part, I chiUlian kindness towards os, and of friendship for the slave, we are constrained to look upon the matter io a different Ifcht from that in which ft before presented itself. Being now bound to believe that the writer honest, in this his' dealing with us, we are .able, to put no other construction on bis former piece, but to take it for granted that hi is the doc trine that the oppressed 'are to be liberated vi et amil-by force and arms "peacea bly If we can, forcibly if, we mu?tn that the wrongedv may and ought to take ven geance into their, own, baudsthat the Greeks, the Poles, and our father' obeyed nature's laws, the dictates of reason and justice, the calls of humanity, and the in junctions of the Bible in a word, that these did their ' imperative duty," when they drtw the' hearts' blood of their op pressors, and trampled the tyrants in the dust pod therefore, 'on the samexprinciple, it is now the duty, of the oppressed millions in our own land, whose sufferings are a thousand fold more than our lathers endured, to rise and break their chains orerthe heads of their oppressors, asserting and maintain ing their heaven-bora rights; and, that it is but. obedience tp ' nature's laws, (be dic tates of reason and justice, the -calls of hu manity, 'and the injunctions of the Bible," foOSj who hare the power, to exercise it in their behalf, and accomplish the work at onee. Now, if the premises are correct, we see not why the conclusion is not unavoida ble. Once establish and justify the law of violence, for the overthrow of tyranny, and we know of no way to sare the necks of American tyrants. v Tho vignette' ol the Ilichmcml Whla and the Kcntuckian, pa pers published in the land filares, rcpre- seut an assertor of his rights, standing ujpon, the prostrated body of his oppressor, which he has transfixed 'and pinned to the ground with a spear, while he exclaim, sic son per tyrannisto always to tyrants. ' This indication carried out would, at least, down with every '.slaveholder1 in this nation, and place a slave at his throat with a deadly instrument, until he should abjure his pres ent tyrannous claims. But the Telegraph advocates no .uch doc tr'm. It hold to the law of love. It re jects the law of violence, as anti-scriptural and irrational.- It sees no propriety or con sistency in taking sword and writing on it, M love your -enemies" a suitable motto for a christian to write on everything and then plunging that sword into your enemies' hearts; No it would only oppose truth to error light to darkness GodY Jaw to sin. , Free ducassioa will do the whole work. So far as our correspondent, is disposed to indulge in itr observing candor and kind ness, the Telegraph" is 'open. If he says anything further, will ho have the kindness to snswer the following questions: J. Is the American slaveholder a kidnap peri'i ' 2. Ocgbt American slavery to be abolish ed by the law of violence? Fitrtkt Vermont Telegrapk. Ma, Editor,. Dear Sir: Permit me to offer your readers a very few remarks on a passage of Sacred .writ :M . Be not conformed to this vorld." There is, I conceire, great danger of pro fessed christians imitating the world in its spirit, 1 its pleasures, and Us fashions. M Fashion" haunts every mind, of both sexes of all ages and conditions Hence the propriety and necessity of . the passage oracripture cited. . I am not about to screen my own sex, for surely VaH are guilty before God;" but I Wish to say to females and especially to my dear sisters, beware. Borne years since, it was the fashion to girt the body tin til it was incapable of supporting itself in an erect position, and . then to stay up the ruined frame with wooden braces. And for this pernicious practice, all had an excuse One was " weak at .the stomach" another was "crooked and wished to be sti light," and delicate in form ' Such practices are evil, from several con- iderations: ' 1. They charge God with a failure in the formation of the human frame. As tbo' that symmetry of form which the .Creator has chosen needs altering: and amending by the hands of creatures, to make it comely I 2. Thejr interfere with it j established laws of our physical nature ir cbstruct the vigorous and healthful opera tbas'oi the various functions of body and mind, and expose their victims, to pain, de- ; crepituda and prtmstore death. . I Do those christians who are running af ter fashion in dress, know that a large pro- portion of these fashions have- their origin , la "house of ill-fame T1 got up1 by those whose principal business it ij to ruin all in The heathen, prompted by superstition and idolatry, have thrown their bodie3 into a variety of contortions to suit their several deities. But for Christians thus to treat the noblest work of God, is most abominable. Why not let this work stand, in all its orig inal grandeur and elegance of proportion, a monument of infinite wisdom and goodness? There is in many places a fashion of bend ing forward and walking at an angle of about lorry-five degrees, making the body to appear ss though the spine had been broken. All that is wanting to furnish the picture is a cine and a wrinkled face, which can soon be manufactured. Those who cannot com ply with the last mentioned fashion, with out serious inconvenience, have found a remedy, viz: to affix a roll of feaihers upon the back I Ridiculous enough ! Christians, be not conformed to this world. Spectator. Black Lead. We gave an item of intel ligence from the New-York Spectator last week, which contained a statement that the black lead mine in Borrowdale, England, was the only one in the world, and that that was now closed. The correctness of the statement that there was no other in the world was very much doubted at the time. We ean now inform the Spectator that the artists of our village obtain their black lead from Ticonderoga, Esex Co. N. Y. Correction.

Ordination. On Wednesday the 19th ist. I Jr. Ij. 15. Cole was ordained as pas tor of the Hiptist church in Hopkinton. 1 he exerc:?es of the orenston were ns follows: Anthem, bv Choir; Rending of the Scriptures, by bro. J. CTement; Prayer, bv nro. Q. Daland; Smirme, 112 Hymn Ol Wmchell's Sup. Sermon, by bro. K. L.. Lnmminjjs, from Act 20, 24: Ordain mg prayer, by bro. S. Everett; Charge to the Candidate, by bro. E.

Caswell; Sing inir, 238 Hymn Winchell's Sup.; Bene diction, by the candidate; Singing, Dis mission. The weather was fine, tho congrera lion larre and attentive, and the exercises appropriate and interesting-. Perfect un ion has marked all the measures of the church and concrreiration in relation to the settlement of bro. Cole, who commenc es his labors under favorable circnmslanc es, and it is hoped this connection may loner continue. The examination of the candidate was both interesting and highly satisfactory. Bro. Colo was hopefully converted at the early aire of seven years and subsequent ly had his mind exercised on devoting himself to the gospel ministry, but final ly entered the Medical profession and practised successfully as o physician for several years. The council received full testimonials of his good moral and chris tian character from the Baptist church in Winlsor, Vt., and the First Baptist church in Lowell, in which places ru has resided. The year past he has been connected with the Theological Institution at Newton. Ba. T. J. Roberts. Br. Roberts, who during the last year went on a miss'on to China, has written to Kev. J. a oooh, of this city, from his present field of labor. lis letter, dated liatavia. Java. fen. i, 837,w is before us, from which wc derive the following: Br. Roberts sailed from America Oct. 3, 1836. and after a pleasent voyage of 103 days he arrived safely at Uatavta, anu was kindly received and hospitably enter tained by the missionaries there. On bis arrival he devoted himself immediately to the study of the Chinese language, which he finds an easier and more delightmi sttidtr than he antic inatcd. He says, havinir dovoted himself to the benefit of those who can write and speak the Chi nese language, he considers himseir in the field of his destined labor, inasmuch as many Chinese live on the Island. He quotes the following relative to lava from a late writer: M Its tnrce principal are Batavia, Samarang, and Soerabaya. Batavta contains within a circuit of twenty miles 300,000 souls, of whom 30,000 are rt . t i 1 t QO!l - inmese, and soerawva nas aouui 000, and 5.000 Chinese. There are, be sides, about . 10,000 Chinese scattered about in various Darts of the islanJ ;" and aflds '"Th i. rimihtlpst a moderate cmi- mate. Amonc these many books might be distributed and missionaries employed. Books are jrenerally thankfully receied. He aays: Myhealth and spirits are very good, ana have been generally since 1 left home,. I am much pleased wun this climate. I m trnW crlad that 1 have become a missionary to the heathen-tbe prospect is flattering for usefulness. A notable thing not one missionary here, male or female, mm havinsr come. This is a noble work, nearest divine of anymmg on .earth.. There are eigm male and six female missionaries here at present ; only one, however, able to preach in me native language atpresr, cxcepi ing a uaUve preacher' ; " . He speaks of the, importance of schools m renovating the eastern pagan nations, and remarks further: We have four presses here, which are now employed in printing books and tracks for circulation both in the ChineseJ and Malay languages. No facilities are lacking here but pecuniary means for printing and circulating tracts and books in these languages to an unlimited extent, both here and elsewhere on the island and the neighboring inlands, on all of which there are mady Chinese and Ma lays. There is a large colony of Chinese on Borneo, but a few days sfil from here; nuriy ag0 jn Samatra, in sight of this is land : indeed, on all the is'ands of this vi cinity, and in Siatn, there are perhaps millions of Chi nese now accessible. One or more missionaries would be usefully employed in visiting and distributing tncts and books among the Chinese of these Islands constantly. I am happy in the missionary vorlc, nor could I be in duced to abandon it for any t anhly consid eration. I hope that many ofmvyounfj brethren of the Mississippi Valley will soon man sufficient courage to come and taste ofthe self-denying sweets of the mis sionary life." Cross and Jour. The Rev. Benjamin Wheeler, pastor of the Bantist'church, Plaistow, N. H, under date of July 3, writes to the editor ofthe N. H. Baptist Register as follows: onice wie coiisuuuion 01 ine cnurcn in this place about one year arro, we have enjoyed a continued rind pleasant revival of religion. The work has been gradual no particular excitement. God has not spoken in the earthquake nor in the whirl wind, but it has been the still small voice. We hope and trust that it has not termin ated but is vet in progress. The last Sabbath eight precious souls followed their divine Redeemer in the hoy ordi nance of baptism, in imitation of His ex ample and in obedience to His commani. Of this numbvr all are heads of fmiilies but two. Every thin? contributed to ren der the services solemn, impressive and interesting to a larje and attentive assem bly. The Lord is doinsr crreat things for us whereof we are glud. O that m-.Mi would praise Him for His wonderful works." At the present time, says the editor of the Eastern Baptist, there are several quite extensive revivals of religion now going on in this State, Maine, and that many who have been Uvmsr in sin and disobedience to God, have renounced the delusire errors of the world and have joyfully embraced the Savior, who has graciously promised solvation to all who will repent of their sins and turn to God, while others are seriously inquiring what they shall do to be saved. And even at the time we are penning this arti cle, we could name more than half a dozen towns in this State, where the still small voice of the Spirit has been recently heard, and where, we have reason to be lieve, the followers of Christ have been revived by this blessed Spirit and have had reason to rejoice in the relijion of Him who came to save his people from their sins. In our own immediate vi cinity, we have the pleasure to state that an unusual revival of God's work is now beinsr enjoyed by oar Freewill Baptist brethren in this town. The Primitive Methodists held their eighteenth annual conference at Sheffield, (Eng.) which commenced on the 19th and closed on the 24th instant, when the report of the connection was found to be as follows: members 65,277; itinerant preachers, 4G0; local, 5,343; chapels, 923 ; being an increase for the present year, of members, 2,97 1 ; itinerant preach ers, 47; local preachers, 953; chapels, 125 ; besides deaths, 872. The Third Presbytery of Philadel phia decided, at their recent meeiing, to continue their present organization, not withstanding the decision of the late Gen eral Assembly, cutting them ofl'asa pres bytery, which they hold to be unconstitu tional, and not in accordance with the constitution of the Presbyterian church. A convention of the twent-five Presby teries repudiated by the last General As sembly of the Prisbytenan church is to be held at Auburn on the lth of next month.

The Eighth Ward Temperance Society in this city is sup posed to be the largest local Temperance Society in the world. It has more than nine thousand members. This society held its fourth anniversary meeiing at the Rev. Dr. Broadhead's church, corner of Green and Broorne streets, on the 4th inst. From the report, wc select the fol lowing statements : tection of Gen. Santa Cruz, who is also President of Bolivia.

They wi re convicted of horse stefcling, and wer stripped, tk-d up and whipped in the beautiful Court House square, on the Min sirrft, in front ofthe Mayor's house. The law is bad enough which authorizes, o revolting a punishment; but the officer mist be wors than the law to execute it in such a place.

If this grain, that is now worse than wasted, was converted into breadstuff's, it would supply our whole city more than two years. Notwithstanding these facts, our cnuse is progressing, and its influence is felt in every department of society. In 1830, when our population was but 207,021, we had 3,140 licensed dram-shops, 26,196 paupers, and 063 convictions. In 1826, with a population of about 200,000, we have 2,937 licensed dram-shops, 22,696 paupers, and 858 convictions; showing an actual decrease, in proportion to the population, of about 33 per cent. Or say, increase of population, 83,000 ; dectease of licensed dram-shops, 203; of paupers, 3,f00; of convictions, 105. During the five years of our existence as a society, we have been blessed with most encouraging success; and although intoxicating drinks are still used to a fear ful extent, yet their decrease has been as tonishing. About 30 habitual drunkaids have been reclaimed most of whom are now useful members of the different churches of our ward. More than 1,000 temperate drinkers have been rescued from a drunkard's grave, by the adoption and practice of our pledge. More than 400 others, in the habit of being aided by public charity, have been enabled, by abandoning strong drink, and appropriat ing their earnings for the support of their families, to live entirely independent of any other help; thus saving to our ward and city several thousands of dollars. A number of temperance groceries have been established, and the number of dram-shops decreased. The number aided by public charity in our ward has been reduced, since we commenced operations, from 1,550 to less than 50. We have also cir culated more than 100,000 temperance documents and papers, employed an agent more than a year, and obtained more than 9,000 names to our pledge; and all at an expense to our society, of less than 1,500 dollars. We have also a junior and juve nile society, that numbers near 2.00J of the inost intelligent and moral of our youth, besides several church associations. Perhaps this is not the largest or most efficient temperance society in the world; but if there is one that surpasses it, we should like to hear from it. N. Y. Obs. Litigation, &c. Hard times for law yers in Lewis county ! Population 16, 000 and during the year past there has not been a criminal case tries in the coun ty court, nor an indictment lound ! Only three persons have been caged in jail for slight offences, during the whole year. But two persons have been sent to the state prison in all the last four years. The number of civil suits in thercounty courts rarely exceed four or five and oc casionally there is not a particle of busi ness for the court. If they have anything in Lewis county worth stealing or quar reling about, we must say that this picture tel's well for public morals in Northern New-York. Roeh. Dai. Adv. Troubles among the Pottawatta mies. The Boonville (Missouri) Herald, of June 24, says there is little doubt that the treaty with these Indians, now located on the Platte River, will have to be en forced vi el ay mis. The tribe are quarrel ling and cutting each others throats in drunken frolics from whiskey, smuggling among them by speculating whites. The life of Mr. Davis, Indian agent, has been assailed.

We learn from the best authority, that Buzzel is since dead ; and that upon his death bed, he confessed him self to have been one of those who set fire to the Convent Atlas. The reason he was not convicted was capital punishment. Bos. Pres. Thus it is clear that capital punishment stands directly in the way of truth and jus tice.

The manner in which the prisoners who have been lately taken have been treated calls aloud for vengeance! exemplary vengeance! both upon the in fernal savages, and their more brutal ad visers, the Mexicans. We ought to in vade their country, and exterminate from the face of the earth, a race of useless vagabonds, whose brutal deeds have scarcely any parallel ! Texas Chron. Startling Fact. The Rev. Doct. Pierce, of Brookline, in the course of his remarks at the Marlboro' Hotel, on the fourth of July, told a story about his pre decessor in the sacred office, who for thir ty years had himself filled the station which he had occupied for over forty years. This clergyman, although a cold water man. had furnished his friends, in one year, with one hundred and twenty eight quarts of rum, and he had the docu ments in his possession to prove it. Now, Mr. President, said Mr. Pierce, if a cold water minister furnishes one hundred and twenty quarts, which would make a bar rel, how much did the ministers provide, in those days, who drank themselves ?

Specie being worth more on our sea board than in almost any other pait ofthe world, it is pouring in from all quarters; even from Liverpool there have been some imports at New-York. While this process is going on large exports of produce, and even English goods (especially woolens, which pay cash duties) are making to Liverpool and Lon don. By this mode, and the large amounts trusteed here, our balances to England will soon be wiped off, and specie contin ue to fade. Bos. Press.
