We will $U0 pose that you are a-parent.-- We ask whether you - have . formed? any definite plan for watching over a converted child!' Suppose your own child should : be con verted to-day, would you know, what to do with hira.l . Suppose, after conversion; he should begin to backstido, what couw would you adopt to bring him back ?. If you have not yet formed any definite plan for this purpose-, is it not probible ihatlf your ;hild should 'converted, he trill backslide before vou will be able to ma ture a plan for his preservation 7, These questions are asked, not by way of re proof, but to show th" reason why so ma ny children backslide x afler , seeming 10 have experienced, a . change of . heart Children are so constituted by the Author ol their , being.' that they art no more ca j-ib!a of taking care of their, souls .; them clrc3, thaa jbeir btPin J?rex Perhaps a little explanation from me would readily relieve your mind on the point at is sue. The remark alluded to was made with reference to prevailing customs and prejudi ces, which -might be conformed to without violating moral obligation. And when this is the case, it seems to me, to be a "good and sufficient reason for a christian to render, that he is sustained in a given course of ac tion by the opinions of errinz mortals." In vil of which my brother cbmpIausyt'appreL hend to be an eecr, the cause of which lies, ra my Tiew-, . re ry muchttrheierr hare plac ed. it vt, : .v .'":; . '(2V" TFftose reason and common sense?". Your own, certainly. To depend on others will be, neither to satisfy yourself nor any one else. The t difficulty," my brother, is, that you blend together and confound things that are entirely different, and which should be kept separate and distinct You speak of public opinion, and of the opinion of an indi vidual, as being one and the same thing. You brought forward public opinion as, ''in many cases,' a proper" rule ofaction." On my preferring in matters of expediency rea son and common sense, you say, "It is dif ficult for me to conceive of a man having an opinion contrary to his reason and common sense, or separate from them." Very well But At opinion, founded on his own reason and common sense, may be in every respect different from public opinion. (3) This is coming to the point at issue. We shall now piobahly understand eachoth er, and be understood. u Prevailing customs at.d prejudices" are to be "conformed to," so far as they may be "without violating moral obligation." Allow me now to ask how we are to know what is, and what is not a violation of moral obligation' how else but by going to the Bible, or to reason and common sense ? You have already con ceded that "prevailing customs" public o- pinion may, in some things, sanction or re quire the violation of moral obligation : of course you grant that, in some things, pub--ic opinion is not a safe standard of duty, or rule of action! Well, if sometimes you find it necessary to appeal to higher and bet ter standards than public opinion, why not use these standards at all times? Look to these and you are sure to be right, whether public opinion be right or wrong. Adhere to what is right and proper, not because pub lic opinion favors it, but because God re quires it and reason dictates it. Shun and rebuke lhe wrong,:though the public opinion of the whole world around you sustain it. If, in obeying the dictates of reason and Rev elation, you find yourself at thesarae time sustained h public opinion, all the better. But this affords no justification for making public opinion the rule it being imperfect. Adopt the perfect rule, and then you can never be wrong. Stop short of this, and you are never sure of being riajht. I still main tain, therefore, that "it is not a good and sufficient reason for a Ckristian or for a ra tional, accountable being to render, that he is sustained in a given course ofaction by the opinions of erring mortals." This does not necessarily iuvolve any contempt of pub lic opinion or any undue disregard for the opinions of others. It is only setting up a perfect standard in lieu of an imperfect one. A word in regard to your illustration, and your quotations ot bcripture, ana l have done, for the present. "If public opinion require a minister to wear a black coat, it is a sufficient reason why he should wear a black coat" Not in the least. If a blue coat, of the same texture and cost, will do from a fourth to a third more service than a black one, and it will, then he who throws away from twenty-five to thirty-three dollars of his hundred, which he lays out for coats, in a given space of time, is wanting in the first duties owed to himself, his family, his friends in a word, the cause of benevolence and religion. And so if public opinion require it, I sup pose ray brother would have me wear calf- .k v r For the, .VnaontTelejrrpb. AlfTI-SIiAVETlY LIBRARIES. To the Abolition ista of Vermont s Dear Brethren : At the last Anniversary of the Vermont A. SrSociety -a resolution was passed recommending the establish-, lishraent. of. Lib&arie9, composed ol Anti- Slavery' literature in every local. society in the State. In order to carry into enect as speedUy as possible this resolution, the "Ex ecutive Committee have appointed appoint ed one or more - agents - in - each county ) to take the Special charge of this measure who we tiust will bestow that attention on - the subject which its great importance demands. But howevei faithfully these brethren may discharge the -trust reposed in them, they must very, much depend for the success of their efforts: upon the efficient co-operation of our friends generally. And we feel assured that the Library system when duly appreciated will be seen tp be so powerful an auxiliary in our cause, that you will lose no time in taking the measures necessary for establishing one or more in each of your respective societies. The plan has recently been adopted in Western IMew-York, and is working with signal success. The Committee believe that this meas ure is not only adapted to effect great good, but that it is in strict accordance with the most rigid economy. We all stand pledged to the fulfilment of a high 'and solemn re sponsibility. To use all the means in our power, consistent with other duties, for the neaeeful redemntion of two and a half millions of our fellow-countrymen from the voke of slavery. This we are aware can 4 be accomplished through human agency only by the correction of public sentiment Those measures, therefore, are the most economical which will diffuse the most light on the subject of slavery and emanci pation, and will present it to .the greatest number of minds, and to such as will exert the most controling influence, at the least The Chuutian Ry iew. doxTsa. or No. IX 1.

That an American-born citizen, charg ed with no crime, should be found fleein from the land of his birth, where it is pro fessed that there is more liberty enjoyed than anywhere else among men, and seek ing refuge from slavery at home, m the dominions of a monarch, is an occasion for reproach which should aot be allowed to pass by unimproved, and which when prop erly improved must serve to awaken atten tion to the shameful inconsistency. 2. We are told that the slaves are happy and contented, and would not leave their masters if they could. Here is a practical confutation of the silly falsehood. 3.
