And ihe reader shall judge w heth- er any man who designs to be strictly honest and upright, would ever come forward and undertake to sustain himself in such a posi- taken, on so sandy a foundation as he has here placed under himself.

Of the cor rectness whereof I now affirm, I ought to J know something inasmuch as I was pres ent at the presentation and discussion of . M.n1t- ' resolution. The ract from the Erangelist is un- official and incorrect. 'fBnt if it were cor- reel it would fall far short of sustaining the Chronicle's broad assertion. I can readily we how the Editor of the Evangelist fell t ioto his mistake. In the discussion oflhe . , . . . resolution, those who opposed its adoption, far f'?a kn3 u Declaration111 aa such, to be "thrown overboard and disa- rowed" so far from- "disclaiming" the generality of it great, tital, republican, and chibtian doctrines and measores-they only t , f f . . . objected, so far as I remember, to a single lhal V1 was theone "'nvalving tc principle, and pledging the practice of non-resistance azainst the brute violence of - 1 our enemies. Si So much, indeed, -did the discussion turn on this one point, that the resolution was Jcft on the table, and another resolution leaving out any and every allu sion to the "Declaration" taking' op the Peace question by itself, was introduced ia the following shape:" . y ; " Iteioirtd, That we rncetly dc'm that thb rent aad ruembera of this Society, while enagd ia advocatina; tha pare and pacifia principles of e mancipation, ' may continue patient under their manifold provocauona, forrivins their eneuiiea, not provocauona. forjivin relying upon physical strength for thejr defence a-rainst the violence of other, but by their patient eixluraoca of evil, evince tb anirit of their whole miasion to be one of 'peace on earth and good U to ate.'

" r . : J This statement of tnina is corroborated "and sustained, by the lollowing from the er 'Pennsylvania Freeman." Tht quotation ! is an extract from a letter written home from New-York' by the Editor, John G. If hiltier. who was present at the "debate," sion and is the author ot the latter resolution : " During this day 4th of Mav an animated de bate took place in reference to what U termed " the neaca aueation." rrowing out of a resolution, de claring the "Declaration of Sentiments," put forth at PbiladelDhia in 1833. binding upon all tne mem- ben of the Anti-Slavery Society, aa a part of its fundamental law. .

It is plain that the Editor of the Evan gelist fell into his error by blending the two resolutions. But the Editor of the Evan gelUt has not, in his error, undertaken to make out what the Chronicle has or any thing like it that the " Declaration was thrown overboard and disavowed." It is now seen what ground I had fo declaring befure the worlJ that the Chron icle's statement carried an untruth on the lace of it. This declaration was not made recklessly or incautiously. I knew well whereof I aCifined, and wherewith I had to sustain myself. Whethermy declaration is well sustained, others shall now judge. I will close with a single illustration: Suppose that in a general convention of delegates from the American people, assem bled in 1S33, for the purpose of consulting or the common welfare, a resolution is off ered, u that we consider the Declaration of American Independence, made by our fath ers, July t, 1776, a declaration of the prin ciples of the American people." Suppose that some of the members of the Conven tion, being conscientiously scrupulous on the subject of war. manifest their opposi tion to the single point in the "Declaration" which asserts our right to "levy war." Suppose, furthermore, that after a discus sion of some length this original resolution be laid on the table and left there; and another resolution, confined strictly to the subject of Peace, is started, and after dis cussion is lost. To complete this illustra tion, it is now only left to suppose that some lover of strong governments some hater of republicanism, ia Europe, should take occasion from these proceedings to proclaim throughout that continent that the Conven tion of delegates from the American people had ;thrown overboard and disavowed" the American Declaration of Independence ! Who that U worthy to be called an Ameri can, could do less than to brand such a statement before the world, as "carrying an untruth on the face of it?" For the Telegraph. Washington (N. Y.)

A resolution. disfel'owshipping thoe professed Christians who make merchandize of men, passe J by a large majority. Also they could no longer foster aod patronize those institutions of learning which suppress free discussion. I am gratified to see men come fearlessly to the point, and speak out what they mean. There is a modern delicacy on the subjects of oppression and licentiousness, which cor rupts and darkens the moral atmosphere and supports thes blighting sins. But the mon sters, although closely allied and mutually strengthening each other, most and will be pui down by the force of truth. And why should we not speak out the truth against these sins, as against all others ? I hope I shall not ba thought severe or person al, if 1 adopt the language of one of the speak ers at the late anniversary in New-York "that among the meanest of the mean are the Northern advocates of slavery." Let the Christian and the Philanthropist no longer injure his own conscience, and wound the cause of Christ and of humanity, by withholding a vital part of truth. Let each one hold forth the truth which he has, and the works of darkness will soon be flee ing awa to their own place. Thus shall the piety and the benevolence which the Savior breathed, be diffused throughout this whole land. L II -. Shrewsbury, June 23, 1838.

But what has got into this Editor now, that he should make such a selec tion as the following, and publish it without note or comment T If slavery'be a sin, it is certainly a sin of no common magnitude. The cry that it is wholly a political affair, and that the church steps out of her sphere in meuQIing uuu me ouijcci, 10 iuwi. urn.. idle. Its political as poet, we grant is bad enough, and fairly belies our high sound ing pretentions of republicanism, but its evils, in a moral point of view, may truly bo termed legion. The church has cher ished it in her bosom, and sustained it by her. example, until it has reared its head so high in the sanctuary, as almost to bid defhnee to her authority. This is evi dently one of the worst sius of the times. lit- . . 1- .K ia ii.nvOi. thin But if we must wait for civil authorities to take the lead in opposing this sin, what is it but an acknowledgment that politics are purer than religion? We are truly in a woful plight, it tne church must abandon her contest w'th sin, and lean tor support on the arm of the world. Per haps nothinar tends so much to perpetuate this monstrous system, as the acknowl edged fact that men truly pious, support it bv their eximple. This hallows it in the'eves ot the world. Would tne church only see to the removing of such props, the unsightly tabric must soon totier and fall. Many church officers and members, in former years, were in the habit of dram drinking. It was thought no'sin to man ufacture the liquid pioson, and set! it. Thv-se good men partook of it themselves, and no doubt aided, unintentionally, in drowning the souls of many in destruc tion' and perdition. But see- what has been done by discussion, and the testing of such practices by the principles of the Bible. What evangelical church would now choose a dram-drinkin? minister to instruct them, and be an example to the flock? A few years has produced this great change. Is it at all improbable, that a few years more will find s'avehold- mg ministers in the same predicament? Nay, -if they would now refuse any long er to touch the unclean thing, would not such conduct be approved and admired by every candid mind?

Volume Distribution by the American Tract Society. John Clark, agent for this enterprise, addressed theCongregaiiona! and Baptist congregations, in this village, lat Lord's day. This work i3 not confined to the distribution of the bound volumes of Tracts published hy the Society, but in cludes uch writings as Bunyun, Barter, Netins, and numerous otheis. The object is, to place religious reading in families, ta take the place of the light, pernicious read ing that is too prevalent and too much pre vailing in this book-making, book-selling,and book-reading age. The plan is, for the fiiendsol the cause in the different parts of a town, to take the books from the agent and gotrom door to door wiih them, selling them at the cost of publishing. This brings the books much cheaper than they can be obtain ed from book-sellers who require a profit to afford them a living. The cheapness very much enhances the sales. Small funds are in some places collected, for the purpose of supplying gratuitously those families who are either unable or unwilling to purchase. In some instances in this region, upwards of $100 worth of books have been sold in a town. Beyend all controversy, it is a good way to do a good work. CrThe agent contemplates visiting JAZ dlebury, Vergennes and Burlington. Will the Editors of newspapers in these places' give notice? Fourth of July.

The child died a short time before the mother. Some weeks, or months, after wards, circumstances attending her last sickness and death created suspicion that Thompson had poisoned her. The body was disinterred in June following, and the stomach examined. Thompson was arrest ed, aud, on examination bad, was fully committed tor' trial oa the charge of murder, which trial was had and resulted as be fore stated.

House. Little business of general im portance was transacted to-day. The Sen ate Bill, granting a pre-emption right to settlers on the public lands, was debated the principal part of thj day result not known, as the House sat till a late hour. Mr. Legare, from the Committee on For eign affairs, to whom had been referred the memorial oflhe New-York Peace Socie ty, asking Government to take measures for establishing a Congress of Nations for settling disputes, instead of appealing to forc j, made a report adverse to the praver of the memorialists, and on his motion "the committee were discharged from nil fur ther consideration of the same. The re port is very elaborate, and ten thousand ex tra copies were ordered to be prin'e I. The House resumed the consideration of the report of the Committee on Foreign Affair, on the subject of the annexationof Texas, with the motion of Mr. Cushiuo-to recommit the report with instructions.3 Mr. Thompson now moved the follow ing as a further amendment : " With instructions to report a joint res olution directing the President to take the necessary steps for the annexation of Tex as to the United States as soon as it can be done consistently with the treaty stipula tions of this Government." Mr. Howard remarked that, since ves terday. it would be perceived the question had undergone a total change. Then t1 e question was whether a proposition Was before this Government, coming from Tex as for annexation ; now, it Was proposed for os to make an application to that He public. The evening session of the House on Thursday, was srnr upon thee-emp-tion bill, which finally passed, on th Lprertous question, 132 to 70. mr; uromgoolerora the Committee on oreign Affairs, upon the subject of the an riexattpri cf Texas j to the United States, reported that there is now no proposition pending in the Hoasa either for the-ad- Thomps mission of the republic o Texas as a slate into the Union, or for its territorial annex ation to the United otates. The committee do not deem it advisable to recommend any action on the part of tne House ol Kenresemativcs, calculated to prejuugeany pucn proposition should it hereafter Le lormally submitted for decis ion, or to foresial public sentiment in rela tion thereto. In consideration thereof. the following resolution is reported; Resolced, i hat the Committee on Foi- eign Affairs be discharged- f om the fur ther consideration of the whole subject. & that all the papers relating thereto, and to them referred, be laid on the table. Mr. Cushing called for a division of ihe question, so that it might be first taken upon that pait of the report which propos ed to discharge the Committee on Foreign Affairs. Mr. C. dissented from the reKrt entirely, and should, before he sat down, move a recommitment for, the purpose of having the subject more deliberately anj .irgumentativcly presented to the House. It was due to the country and the subject. The preamble says there is no proposition before the House for the annexation of Texas to the United States. This might be technically, in true parliamentary lan guage, correct since there was not any motion or resolution pending in the House for the annexation of Texas. But Mr. C. denied that this was, in substance, correct. Three States of the Union, Tennessee, Al j abama and Mississippi, have passed rtsj I lotions for the admission of Texas into the Union ; and of two at least ot these Stales, the resolutions have been presented here, and are in the possession oflhe house. l:i addition to which, Texas herself Im -implied to the United States for admission This proposition was pending now, ;ni j in force; and not, as the late report of t'.o Secrttarv of State would seem lointimit '. withdrawn from the cognizance of the gov ernment. Bvthe verv latest intelligence from Texas, the Senate of that repub.ic had distinctly refused to withdraw the applica tion. Furthermore : Thrceof the States, Ohi Michigan and Massachusetts, have set.t here resolutions solemnly remonstrati;: against the annexation of Texas. Il isdi.a to those three States, also, to express our op:ii:uii3 jiauiijf vm me suuprvi. n was i due to the thousands upon thousands el petitioners, whose opinions on this subjvet load in- tibie, to express our opinions. They ask it they demand it thev have a right to it. Mr. C. insisted upon the dutv of ihe committee o make a full, hi umentaiive report. He would not unjt r btke to discuss the merits of the q H'S'i n. IJut he desired to see a lull report, therefore he submitted tlie following mo tion : That the report be recommittal ro the same committee, with instructions to t:nl:u a report thereon in full as to the in ; i s f the questions presented by the resolutions of the legislatures of the sver,;) States o; I Tennessee.
