David Campbell has started a Graham piper at Boston. This Campbell is an ultra ultra orthodox ultra moral reformer ultra abolitionist ultra Grahamite-and he keeps a boarding house on the bran bread principle, which goes by steam, and is liked by-v-those who like it. When Mar dock, the. actor, first went to Boston, he was looking about for a boarding house; and in the course of his search, came to the one in question and rung the bell, when s tall gaunt man, who looked as it he might have been the apothecary in Borneo and Juliet came and askea his pleasure. "Can you accommodate a smallfamily with borl a few weeks, until I can find a house to suit me. There's only myself, wife, and two children. In a high toneJ, attenuated, husky, or rather branny voice, Mr. Campbell re plied : Why, yes. we take boarders, but we b:rd on the Graham system " "The Graham system! what is that!" 11 Why, wo have no meat, no tea, nor' roflce."

But when public opinion public indignation extorts from them such sentiments as they here utter, depend upon it, Anti-Slarery is already high on the ascendant. From tba Vermont Chronicle. Messrs. Editors, After considera ble reflection upon the various means and efforts pursued in behalf of the colored part of our population, it has appeared to us that a way may be devised for uniting the voices and the exertions of the whole community on the subject ; a way which will at once avoid the charge of acrimony and rashness on the one hand, and the imputation of lending our sanction to the iniquities of slavery on the other. Without undertaking to mark out that way more defiini?elv at present, we would suggest that a County meeting be called for this purpose about the time nf our County Anniversaries, say Wednesday Sept. 2Xh. Let the friends of the colored race mthis vicinity then associate under a Constitution embracing in substance the following principles That the existing system of American Slavery necessarily ? 1 . involves immense oppression, wrong, and wickedness, and can no longer be sustain ed without perpetuating these evils ; that no one can innocently continue to uphold this system ; that the only adequate reme dy is to be found in the immediate eleva tion and emancipation of the slaves, intend ing thereby immediate measures for the earliest practicable accomplishment of these ends. These and kindred sentiments are enough, as we believe, if diligently main tained, to a.-hieve :he desired end. There an: few who would not assent to them. ; This course will also open a way of action which thousands would take who are now ying still on account of their objections to some of the present measures; and finnllv it would give such a direction to our la bors as will prove satisfactory to every true friend of man 8. H. HoDor.s. Henry B. HoLmbs. August 10, r837. Query: How far is that from bcin tin, which 44 necessarily inrolves immense op pression, wrong, and wickedness?" But "Colonel" Stone, as will be seen below, inveighs roost lustily against slavery as a "sin," And what may be looked for next, from these prints 1 Why, 44 Hang Garri son, and gag all the other faithful laborers in the cause, who have been so daring and impudent as-to call slavery wickedness and tin before we did ; and bring all who have got before us in this warfare, around behind, and push us forward, and then we will be abolitionists as much as any of vou. Shame ! Siame ! on such vanity, envy, and selfishness ,4 The conscientious opponent of slave ry thinks of something beyond the mere evil and wickedness of slavery in the ab stract; he has regard also for the welfare and honor of his countrv, and although he holds it the duty of all men to do away with slavery everywhere or at least to do what in them lies for the attain. nent of that great object, he also feels that it is his duty, and the duty of his country, to begin the work at home. He will first take the beam from his own eye ; or to drop all metephor, his first efforts will be to cleanse his own land from the stain, and when that is done, he will look beyond, to the West Indies, and Texas, and every other region where men and women wear the yoke of bondage. It is not simply be cause slavery is sinful, but because the ex istence of it within our borders is a morai, social and political evil of the deepest dye a torment to ourselves, and perpetual subiect of renroach and scorn for others a very plague-spot to our own land that we oppose -it conscientiously, and wouia do it awty for ever. It is a burden unon our necks, and as such we would cast it off": and although we would rejoice to see it abolished thro'- outthe world, no: for a single day would we assept to its continuance or its increase here, "on ou: own soil, if that were the nrice that we must nav for the relief o any other people from the heavv load We owe a duty to mankind, but our first July is to our country; and when that is rendered, it will be time enough for us to look abroad, and correct the faults or help away the difficult s of our neighbors. Therefore wev say again, if the soil of i exss mist be tilled by slaves, let it noi be under tli waving of our eagle banner. If Texas mast have slaves, whether irom Africa or from our Southern states, let ner own star be shadowed by the infamy not the constellation of which we boast so loudly, as the chosen sign of freedom It is disgrace enough for us, that the peo ple who have introduced and legalized slavery on the soil of Texas, where it was forbidden bv the laws of Mexico, were but a little while ago citizens of our own republic that the first colonial enterprise from the United States has been tne means of establishing human bondage, where the Mexicans haidecreed that it should never have a resting place." 1 Moral Rcroax. The article under this head, to-day. on the out side of the sheet, should be read bv all. 'The last division of it, especially, sheuM be rea4 by certain classes. The editor of the People's Press says : " Wre have watched him the editor of the TelegraphJ long." We have seen it ; and have regarded it just as we have the move ments of all the rest of the race that lark in the grass. Truth is a sovereign antidote against all their poisonous - exsodatioas and withal as good a "cloak" as we want, against harm from their venomous fangs. When they have 44 watched" asmoch lon ger as their master will employ them, they will find the Telegraph just what it has been, incapable of being flattered or frightened from a frank and fearless expression of its own opinions. Worth or the Vt. Tei.egrafh In a Slave State. Calling at the post office, for our regular deposites, on Saturday night last, the clerks met us with hiirhconsratula- DO tions, on the reception of more of the 'needful1 than we have received in a long time, which they verily supposed they were holdup in trust for us. And what could it be, but a letter, mailed at "Columbus, Ga., Aug. 7" marked as weighing "l 1-4 oz." j charged with postage, "1 25" directed to uO. S. Murray, Esqr., Brandon, Vt." and, what was most remarkable of all, marked at the bottom, on the left hand, as containing "8500''! Of course we fell pretty sudden ly to examining an article of such outward import. After finding our way by some half dozen wafers, and unfolding a curious wrapper, what should appear but a copy of the Telepraph, containing C. W. Gardner's sermon, unlynched and unscathed!

An Anti-Slavery Meeting, at the Meet inghouse in Panton, Lord's-day, 27 instant, 4 o'clock P. M. Address by Geo. W. Gran dy. The formation of a town Society is contemplated: the friends of the cause, therefore, should not fail to attend. A pmall mistake. The difference which one letter makes. In copying the account of the 44 Fish Storm," from Niles' Register, last week, the apprentice who did the work, thinking that there must have been a mis take in his exemplar, altered Mdwt" to "cwl;" and we read proof so rapidly as to fail of showing him in season, that the mistake was his own. There is quite a difference be tween penny-weights and hundred-weights, especially when applied to aerial fish. Just as might have been expected. The editor of the People's Press has neither magnanimity, moral courage, nor common honesty enough to allow the Telegraph a bearing before his readers, showing the in justice of his late hypocritical attack. We know this to be severe language. The charge of hypocrisy is a grave charge, and never should be made without the best of evidence. If any evidence is needed in the case, in addition to what appeared before, here it is : 44 The editor of the Telegraph informs us that he did not design to be understood as adopting the sentiment of the article from a l exian paper, which we recently found in his columns. Truly we should have been astonished to hear him say otherwise.'" The italicising is our own. Thus he ac knowledges that while he was strainin? to the utmost to make his readers believe that the Telegraph sympathizes with the Texan murderers, he did not believe it himself. Indeed, so far was he from believing any such thing, as he was charging against the Telegraph, he would have been astonished to find his own ch arge true ! We have very little more ink, paper, pa tience, or time to throw away on 9uch heart less triflers. ANTI-SLAVERY. ' The Misses Grimke. We under - stand that these ladies addressed an audi - encc a few evenings since, at Lowell, of 1500 persons, a large proportion but by no means all of whom were females. They were heard as they have been elsewhere, with the greatest attention and manifest effect. Vet in spite of this success there are not wanting those, even among abolition ists, who doubt the propriety of their ad dressing promiscuous assemblies. These ladies do not go out as agents of the Amer ican Anti-Slavery Society, nor in any way connected with it, vet, for ourseif, we could fully justify the Society in sending them, to do just what they are doing. It must be remembered that the American Anti-Slavery Society is not sectarian, but is made up of all sects and appeals to all to plead the cause of the slaveeach in its own way. In employing females of the Society ot friends to lecture, it would be guilty of no innovation. We do not see how members of other sects could object to it any more justly than to admitting TV J .1 We are aware that the Massachusetts General Association of Congregational Ministers has taken grounds against 'the mistaken conduct of those who encourage females to bear an obtrusive and ostenta tious part in measures of reform, and conn tenance any of that sex who so far forget themselves as to itinerate, in the character oi public lecturers and teachers We suppose the General Association can reconcile this with the folio win? res olution, which they passed at the same meeting : 4 2. Resolved, That we approve of free and candid discussion on the subject of slavery, and also of all other proper meth ods of diffusing light and promoting cor rect moral sentiments which may have an influence to do away the evil' The Association would certainly do the world a favor by informing it, what are 'proper methods.' Is it proper for the Miss Grimkes to speak to gentlemen m a private parlor, with thei own per mission ? Is it proper in the stage coach, and steamboat? in a hired hall in a district school-room? if they must be torced out from the sacredness of the pul pit cushions. -May they use the pen if denied the tongue 1 Those who have made themselves the special guardians of female manners should answer many such questions. It ought to be observed, also, that the Miss Grimkes have not onlv the sanction of the religious body to which they belong, but they have actually been obliged by the importunity of the men of Massachusetts to admit them to their lectures, which they designed totonfine to their own sex. Who will lay a straw in the way of their able and effective advocacy of the rights of the poor victims of our own Christian op pression ? Emancipator. We give the foregoing for the sake of correcting an error that found way into the last Report of the Vermont Anti-Slavery Society. For the error, whatever there is of it, we are responsible at least for its ap- pearance in that place 1 r The source whence we derived the information that the Grimkes were employed agents of the American Anti-Slavery Society, we have forgotten but we considered the information to be correct at the time. And yet, on turning to the Report, the language used shows that we were not positive, and that we did not use positive language. It reads thus : " Your Committee beg leave here to notice two important measures of the parent So ciety if they art the Society's measures," But the article, above, is worth more than its value for correcting the error. What less, or more, we ask, is the truth worth, coming from the mouths of these females on their own tesponsibility, than it would be if they had chosen to be agents of the Ameri can Anti-Slavery Society, and that Society had chosen to employ them as such ? This question, the article from the Emancipator well answers. Ed. Tel. From the Christian Watchman. A VOICE FROM ENGLAND, Mr. Editor, I have recently received from the Rev. Henry Trend, ofBridge wattr, Eng. a letter 'dated June 9, 1837, of which the following is an extract: " At the last meeting of the Baptist Western Association, comprising 44 churches, held at Lime Regis, on the 17th and 18th of May, the following resolution on the subiect of American Slavery, was unanimously adopted. The brethren felt desirous of having it transmitted immedi ately to America, that their strong sympa thy" with the noble band of abolitionists, and theJr deep concern for the honor of their denomination there, might be made known. I shall feel obliged, on behalf of my brethren, by your communicating out sentiments to the Churches in America, either by insert ing the Resolution in one or two of your most widely circulated Journals,.or in any other way that your wisdom may sug gest. tl May the Lord, my dear Brother, speedily grant you the consummation so devoutly to be wished by every true patri ot, no less than by every enlightened Christian, that of America as well as. of ) England, n ma y De saia, slaves cannot ureal lie nine. Subjoined is a copy of the Resolution, which I hope you will allow to appear in your " widely circulated Journal." S. Resolved, That the members of this Associa- lion whilst they deeply regret that the emancipa- I tion of British Christians from their own connec ! tionwi'h Slarery was not sooner effected, consid i er it their bound en duty to express their abhor rence of the system in all parts of the world : that they alo deeply lament that members c, Christian Churches, and Pastors, and even ' Churches as such, should hold property in 1 slaves, and ek to draw from such unhallowed Fourres the support ol the cause of cnnsi ; tnat under a powerful conviction of the utter incon sistency of such conduct with the spirit of the gospel, they cannot but apprehend the most pain ful results to those Chuiches and Pastors, who, instead of striving to effect the removal of this enormous evil, seem desirous of prolonging its existence. " That the mem'vers ot this Association desire also to express their sympathy, on the whole, with the firm, uncompromising, and un daunted abo'itionists of America, in their arduous struggles ; they hail frith peculiar satisfaction. the succes with which the bupreme Disposer nt events has ci owned their efforts, and thev trust that they will not relax in their exert:ons, till they shall have rolled away this reproach fron their na tive land, and every slave in the United States, and in the world, shall have been raised to his proper position in the scale of social poliUcal, and religious inportance. REVIVALS. From the N. H. Baptist Register. Hopkinton, Aug. 7, 183Y. DearBrother Cumbiinos. In com pliance with vour request, I give you i short account of the religious state of things with us, for the Register. When I received tfye invitation of the Baptist churah in this place to become their pastor, about five months since, their spiritual thermometer ranged Tery low.- Thcv haTbeen without a pastor! I think more than one year, althougrra part of the time supplied "with faithful preaching Soon the Spirit of the Lord seemed to be among us; the spiritual atmosphere be came di a warmer temperature. It was not long before it was seen that effectual, feivent prayer, to some extent, had been offered to God; and that.it had called down the energies of his Spirit and his. converting grace. This encouraged us to prove he Lord still farther by tyth.es, and offerings ; and the result has been, as it always will be when God's chosen ones place themse'ves in this attitude, the work ! has continued with gradually increasing interest. No extraordinary measures have been used; we have only endeavored in hum ble dependence, to put forth strength upon ordinary means. Pre ious however, to any special manifestation of Diving grace among us, we endeavored to effect a tem perance reform. The effort proved suc cessful. We have now a temperance so ciety within the church, to which I be lieve nearly al! our acting members have given the influence of their names. We have also adopted a standing rule that henceforward we will not extend to any individual the hand of fellowship who will not unite their names to our temperance pledge. I believe the Lord ha3 blest the effort, for we have seen since that movement, evident signs of his approbation. We are not yet entirely purged from the evil, but we trust that very soon there will not be found so much as the smell of this liquid fire upon our garments. We have now shut down the gate by which its streams have entered, and we have only to drain out the few remaining drops. And here allow me to say that I believe no church can have reason to expect that God will bless them with the diffusion of the Holy Spirit, while they are drinking of that Demon spirit which is so adverse to the spirit of Christ. In these day? of light and knowledge, those members of achurch who can indulge in strong drink, evident ly love Rum more than Christ and his cause, and are inevitably becoming A chaxs in the camp of Israel. The work of the Lord among us has been very still and quiet no noise no excitement ; but there appears to be some deep anxiety that God should be glorified in the salvation of men. Our stated prayer meeting, male and female, and combined, are fully and faithfully attended; and also the meeting for conversation with inquirers. Our house of worship has been unusually full, and yesterday was filled to overflowing. Eighteen have now been added to the church by baptism, and nine by letter. Some of those received by baptism are old hopes just risen from the dead ; others are fruits of th present revival. Some arc substantial men heads of families and bid fair to become pillars in the church. " Some ure young men, of whom may the Lord add to the list of gospel min isters. Several more are indulging hopes and will probably be baptized very soon ; among whom are two or three children who give unquestionable evidence of re newing grace: out of the mouths of babes is God ordaining praise. The work seems to be moving gradually onward, and my heart's desire and prayer to God is that it may continue and extend till the triumphs of the cross shall be complete, and the Sun of righteousness shall shine4 from its meridian height. Yours affectionately, L. B. Cole. From the Morning Star. From Brother O. J. Hackktt. "Albany, Aug. 3, 1837. The Lord is still pouring out his spirit in this vicinity.

He did not, however. make a public profession of his faith in Christ for about 10 years after that peiiod.
