QUERIES.
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.

OBITUAU.Y.
Departed this life, in Ludlow, on the Sth
day of February , A. D. 1839, 'Mrs. Ada
line, wife of Mr. Augustus Haven.
'Tia o'er; 'tis o'er;
That lip of gentle tone
Doth rpeak to man no more;
It liiith given the parting kiss
To him with whom she learned to prova
The climax of terrestrial bliss,
Deep, and confiding love;
She has sighed her last bequest.
On her weeping husband's breast
. Her work is dune."
Mrs. Haven was the dau3hter of Benja
She no more shall piue.
Before his eves in smothered agony,
And waste away, and wear the hrciic flush,
That cheats bo long, to wake a keener pain.
Beside his hearth she sits a guest no more ;
But in heaven's beauty bhall he visit her
In heaven's high health."
May this brief notice serve to wean oth
ers from the world, although they possess
jail its comforts, delihts, and luxuries, which

Revival t Groton, CU
Halifax, March 20, 1839.
Brother Murray : I communicate to you
an extract of a letter, written by a brother,
(R. A. Avery,) dated Groton, Ci., March
4, 1839, and sent to his friends in this place.
If you please, you may insert some of it in
the Telegraph. Samcel Fish.
The first meeting of much interest, says
the writer, was the hrst Sabbath in the year,
held at Mystick Free Mariners Church.

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. I. Green,
to lay their finger on any "public act cfj from Hopkinton, preached, and ihe snlenmi

I have no evidence that -the following coinniuni

accompanymcnt to the money received with it.
But " it is to good to keep." It will be perceived
that the writer lives in Canada.

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

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

When she was 19 years of age, she became

an agreeable, happy and affectionate circle
of relatives, including husband and son,

ry other comfort of life, could furnish.
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
