Y.) baptist Association, writes as follows: " The, Association was held in Moriah. Some excellent reolufions were passed, on Temperance, Moral Reform, Anti-Slavey and Peace. But one resolution, on slavery, introduced by Mr. Foot and passed by an overwhelming majority, and afterward with drawn and lost, deserves to be recorded. The resolution ran thus: Itesolred. That, as churches of Christ, in view of the purity of character which ought to be exhibited by his followers, we cannot consistently fellowship, or admit to communion, sucn persons as commit the unchristian act of holding their fellow be- u85, iue image oi uod, as property : neither such as advocate slavery." three other citizens of the State of Ver mont, praying lor retrenchment and re form, laughter. Mr. A. said, that when he presented the petition, he was aware that the words retrenchment and reform would produce nothing but an universal shout of laughter; but he presented it, because among the retrenchment and re- brms asked for, was a prayer that the members cf Congres3 may reduce their own salaries filly per cent.; that is to say, from etirht to four dollars per day. I his being the case, be could not bear to keep it in bis possession any longer. 1 he memorial was laul on the table. It is to be hoped that this su'.iject so un ceremoniously thrown upon the table with a lau?b and contemptuous sneer, will ere long be called up and receive the considera tion due to it from the representatives of a hard-handed, republican people. It is re publican that all the servants of the people have a good and competent support, in a style befitting republicans, while in the people's service otherwise the public will be deprived of the services of poor men, some of whom have as much intellect, in telligence and integrity as any of the rich. Beyond such support, the tendency is to extravagance and corruption. Do the people in general know and con sider the inducements which members of Congress have to protract their sessions, by spending a lare proportion of the time in contentious speech-making in reveling and debauchery in doing anything, and every thing, but ihe business which they are ex pected to do? Is it known what power their salaries and perquisites give them to exert an influence for their re-election, or the election of such successors as they choose? Look first at their salaries. Each mem ber draws eight dollars a day. The whole uumber of the 25th Congress is about 290. The daily expense then, of paying their salaries, is the enormous sum of 2,320. Those of them who live at any distance begin drawing their salaries several days before they need leave home, and continue to draw several days after they may reach home 20 miles being a days travel. Thus, supposing the member from ibis district to be 450 miles from the Capitol, he draws about $150 dollars before he need start; and then his daily stipend white he is on the way, including his mileage fees, will more than defray all reasonable expenses, so that the 150 is a gratuity to start with; and there is a like gratuity to --nd with, after the adjournment of the session. The sala ry of each member for 9 month the prob able lergth of the former session of the 25th congress, including ine extra session is 2,150, besides what is drawn before arrival at the Capitol and after adjournment of ti.e session. It may be said that some of them spend all of this, and some even more. What amount of money could not men squander, if they would? The prudent need much less than this amount. Spendthrifts ought to fre stinted. It strikes me that, while farmers and mechanics have ooly 1 or 2 dollars a day, 5 dollars ought to be suf ficient for members of Congress. Now append to this salary the franking privilege, extending 60 days from each end of the session, and the power and privileges thus granted are most manifestly anti-republican in their character and tendency. There was no time between the 2iih and the 25th Congress, to which their franking privilege did not extend. The u-e that is made of thi privilege is notorious. With their salaries, hireling presses are employed, and with their franking privilege the coun try is flooded with electioneering matter, in their own favor directly, or in favor of those who are mutually engaged with them, scrambling for office and emolument. What good accrues to the country cr to mankind, from our having scattered throughout the States, 300 sinecures, for the term of 120" uuy s between the sessions of Con2:re?s? Why should a member of Congress have the franking pririlege extended to his own private gains, any more than the farmer, the mechanic, or the merchant? Let the people examine these matters. They will find that the salaries, perquisites and privileges of the national government officers give a power to those officers alto gether dangerous to republicanism. Ex travagance and corruption are contagious. Already the Legislature of our own most republican State has raised the mileage fee. The next step will be and it may be looked for at the coming session to raise the. daily pay. And there is no good reason why it should not be done, if the present pay of members of Congress is not too high. At present there is bo equality. Either 8 dol lars is far too high at Washington, or 1 dol lar and 50 cents is far too low at Montpelier. Again I say, let the people examine these matters, and then speak out to the WiginaL until the o&nc utand ffrlh ' W hen the Turks ascertainea me s ua- the public eye, so foul n ic 7 "" 7" f ' . . . . .1 ..i iJi ...I :r!n ihprp.. nnd their becked this accumulated detamatton, mat vaiv. , ph ...- ' 7, ", - , dar than life-ii gfit. , t hit they might not te eow.- icw mey " .

No sins are more frequently alluded to, or more severely rebuked in the Scriptures, and none seem more to require reprehension from the pulpit and the press, than those of are none to which we are oftener tempted j none we are more prone to indulge & none more fruitful of disorder and wretchedness in society. The forms of evil speaking break out in manifold varieties. The Scriptures speak of swearing, falsehood, blasphemy, i ailing, tale-bearins. whisnerinjr. back-bitinir. and slander; and the state of society still af fords strong and melancholy proof that all these sins yet exiit. Of this black cata logue of crimes committed by this member which was designed to be the glory of our frame, slander is the most common, and the most deadly in its effects. Its most vicious excess is the invention or construction of a story which is faUe. Its next grade and but little, if any, inferior in criminality is to become ile propagator of the tale. There can be no great difference between the great e'evil that frames slanderous reports, and the little imps that run about and disperse them.
