A word here to those Colonizationista who sup
port their scheme on the ground of its heing a
missionary institution, for the conversion of Africa.
(And it is in this aspect of the matter that the sys
tem now gets the chief support it derives from any
who pretend to Christianity or honesty.) Task all
such, whether the honible details of this letter
from a missionary, in which he shamelessly holds
himself forth with his own hands reeking in human
blood, and glorying in his success as a man-butcher,
should not cause them to pause in (heir course ?
The fourth of July is at hand, and the President of
the Vermont Colonization Society has issued his

of complaint, because custom had accord

any one of which it vas proper to employ
as the case required. Nor can I perceive
any just ground of complaint against the
modern' use of the word, church.
I am no stickler for the continuance of
the practice here defended, but do wish
the truth to prevail, and that a practice
innocent in itself, should not be summa
rily condemned, and that without a hear
ing, through the influence of prejudice.
Finally, R. M. speaks of "dedications
of churches," as if they were of very
modern origin, and calls them the off
spring of the mother of harlots and abom
inations." If the custom of dedicating is
of recent date, I wish to know when it

Brother Murray: In your paper of
the 3d iost., I 'notice an attack made by
11. M. on the modern use of the word
church, and on the dedication of churches,
which he is pleased to call "the offspring
of the mother of harlots and abomina
tions." Now If these customs are, indeed,
what he has called them, they can not be
too severely rebuked; but even then it
might be well for It. M. or any one else
who would lay the axe a, the root of the
tree, not to be sparing of his arguments.
To assail and cut away the errors of men
contrary to their prejudices, is an Hercu
lean task, one which can not be effected,
in most cases, without sound argument.
The Pythagoreans might regard the opin
ion of Pythagoras as sufficient ground for
their own belief, and ipse dixit (he, i. e.,
Pythagoras, said it) as a good reason why
others should believe with them; but
other arguments are required by many of
the present day.
