Brother Murray: Will you, or some one of your correspondents, answer the three following inquiries? I. What is the duty of a church when one of its members requests a letter of rec ommendation and dismission to another church of the same faith and order, it be- inff known to the church that this mem beris involved in one of the worst of fam ily difficulties, and, if found guilty, must, even upon the most favorable interprets lion of the gospel lule, be excluded ? The inquiry i?, whether this church is justified in giving this member a utter, either full or defective, under such circumstances. from any consideration whatever, without first investigating the difficulty, when they know where the facts in the case verted. One who went, not long since, from Colerain, Mass., confessed he had not been to meeting six times in six years. Thus the loundations of sin and saian have been shaken to their very centre, in Grotoo, Ston- ington, and New London; and great has been the peace of the churches. For the Vermont Telegraph.

The free davlaborer is, in prospect, reduced to the political, if not moral condition of the slaves ; an ideal line is to divide them in their labor; yes, the same principle is to govern on both ides.

I feel perfectly conscious that, I ing, from these words: 44 The master is in the discharge of every trust they have committed to me, I have, to the best of my abilities, acted solely with a view to the general good, not aufTering. myself to be . influenced by any particular or private in t.roct whatever: and I now challenge those who think I h.iro done otherwise, ! wal" the afternoon, El J.

It has no ap pearance of being intended for more or else than an accompanymcnt to the money received with it. But " it is to good to keep." It will be perceived that the writer lives in Canada. O. S. Murray : Dear Sir : I have taken your valuable pnper many years. 1 have of ten contemplated writing to you. It. was once no burden to wiite a letter. Dut aire. a large family, cares, ai;d a broken mind have much altered me. At first I paid in advance for the Tele graph, with others, at $1,50. 1 next paij 2, punctually. 1 still take the paper tho' a delinquent, which has much troubled me. At one liine ihe vxir hindered; at anoiher. Canada money, 1 feared, would not do and I could not change it. Again, poverty pre vented I could not get hold of the money. 1 know not how. to do without your paper, nor how to pay for it. Your reasonable price, augmented by United States postage, 73 cents, and Canada postage, 87 cents, makes quite a sum for me, in poor health, and a lare weakly family. I take no other paper. My wile says sto"p tins. I answer, I cannot do without it. I have long been a lee-lotalist, fully. I use neither tea nor to bacco. 1 have not bought a fur hat in about 15 years, and never will own another, nor spend a shilling uselessly, to decoiate thh body, until I can punctually pay for a reli gious newspaper, and do more to promote the blessed benevolent institutions of the day. Your paper has fed and comforted me ; ana my delinquency nas stung me. li you knew all, you would pity me. I have property enough in land; hut the near cramps me. I am like a calf in a 59 feet barn without hay ! When I read you, true to your motto, fighting sin in high places, in low places, and in all places when Lovejoy fell and Lynch law prevailed I thanked my God that friend Murray was among the Green ! Mountains, fearlessly -trusting in Him. have been oiten amused at the fancied squirniins of mistaken friends aud barefac ed scoundrel, under the opetation of your unhoned tazor. But above all I am most pleased at the stand you have taken in be half of the down-trodden slave. Blessed be God. it is His cnuse, ar.d He will sus tain it ! 1 have read but little, except in your paper, on the subject. Bnt my whole heart is in t!.e cause. I believe part of their woes are known the rest eternity will dis close. In 1804, I saw about 350 blacks dis charged from ship, in Detherara, nearly na ked. On going ahore, alone, I -passed a mild looking old black man, naked except a strip of cloth, with several gashes across his back, the width of my fingers, dried up in the sua. As he stooped to take up a bunch of cane leaves from the boat, the blood start ed in several places. Tiiis scene cfien comes fresh to my mind, when I read that they are said to be well used aod the like. Slick to the cause of the slave, dear sir, with a fearless, steady aim with an undi vided heart and whatever thy worldly prospects may be, thy soul shall thrive thy last end shall be peace and thy eternity blessed. May God guide, -direct, protect and bless you, as the advocate of universal liberty. And amidst your trials, remember for your comfort that many prayers are of fered up on youT behalf, by those whose fa ces you may never see in ihe flesh 1 once thought to write to you lo go on, and if your glorious cause brought poverty, say so in your paper, aud money would be "raised at any sacrifice. But times have altered. happy turn of mind, adapted to make her society mol agreeable to her associates. When she was 19 years of age, she became deeply anxious about the future well-being of her soul; and finally embraced hope that her sins were forgiven, and her peace was made with God. She was baptized by let of twenty-four octavo pages. The au thor has done a good service fur a good cause.

Each of these contributed for a while to excite an unwillingness to depart so early to be here no more. But after a few weeks of severe struggles, faith and prayer pre vailed. Her hold on earth yielded to a de sire lo depart ana be with Christ, which she considered far belter. During the last ten weeks of her life, she enj jyed almost an unbroken state of peace with God, and delightful anticipation of sweet rest with her Savior in heaven. Her wish to have life prolonged had passed quite away. A suggestion that she might live till Spring, or an impression crossing her own mind that her health might be restored, brought a cloud 6pon her soul, which could be dissi pated only by prayer. She spent much of her time in communion with God, untiHier strength so failed that she was occasionally unable to enjoy freedom of thought and nearness to Him in this holy exercise. At such ti nes she would request some one to pray with her. This she very much enjoy ed, and would frequently say, "your prayer was answered." She often suffered intense ly, yet did not repine, but uniformly ex . M nil.

My greater, regret is that I have not been mora lealous, and done more for the cause of individual and political liberty than I have done. I hope, on .returning to my home and my friends, to join them again in rekindling the beacon fires of liberty up. on every hill in our State, until their broad glare ahall enlighten every valley, and the i-ong of triumph will toon be heard: for the hearts of our people are in the hands cf a just and holy Being, (who cannot look opon oppretelon but with abhor ' rnee,) and he can turn them whitherso- meeiingi on the week days. Things at first did not appear very favorable. But the Lord said, "What, 50 soon?" And when told she was actually dying, sh-j replied, 41 Well, I am ready perfectly ready perfectly wil ling" and added, "Come Lord Jesus.come quickly." She was asked if she had any fears of death. She replied, " No, not one.'-' Her pastor was called in to offer prayer after which she requested that we would ! continue religioys conversation. Soon we discovered that respiration was ceasing. Her husband laid his cheek upon her cold lips, she gave a hearty kiss and was soon gone. We waited for the death cringe, but it came not. A heavenly smile rested on the cold clay. i: Death gazed and left it there." Her funeral was attended on the follow ing Sabbath by a crowded audience. A said to be an everlasting covenant.
