V E 11 M O N T T E L'E G R A P, II . 109 penalty of law. Bat a mere eihibmon of the pecuniar or temporal disadvantages of sinning will not be substituted for a faithful exhibition of its inherent turpitude and blameworthiness. The true Christian reformer will not depend wholly nor chiefly upon considerations drawn only from the interest and multiplication tables from the bottom line of columns or fig ures or aggregates of dollars and cents upon the conclusions of the mere stu dent in political economy the calculator of commercial losses and gains. . As exemplifications of the inevitable tendencies of sin, and illustrations of the penelty of violated law, such' considera tions way indeed b wielded with great power. But standing alone, they are sel dom the instruments of any prominent reform. " -- v ; 3. Without Compromise It follows that the claims of true moral reformation will always be urged by its consistent advocates, without com pro mite. This must follow, of course, from the un compromising claims and unchanging nature of moral law. The Christian re former, therefore, while he maintains that godliness is profitable unto all things, having the promise of the life that now is, as well as of that which is to come will never consent to suspend the claims of the reformation he demands, upon the issue of arithmetical calculations of the profit and loss of the transaction I Maintaining, as he does, that godliness with contentment is great gaiD, he will steadily confront those perverse aispuwngs ot men oi cor rupt minds," who, supposing that gain is godliness," and that virtue is founded into a mere esiimate of consequences, and thus labor to unhinge all laws, human and divine. He will never suffer himself to culculate the value of "other great in terests," when the claims of God's law are at stake, nor will be fail to reprove the wickedness and expose the folly of those "who do so.' He will insist on the imme diate and unconditional abandonment of the sin. i 4. " Vituperative ! Denunciatory . Pro scripiive " Maintaininjg this unbending position, admitting no unholy compromise, and boldly reproving all unfaithfulness to .principle, the true Christian reformer can not fail to be regarded by those who still need to be reformed, as vituperative, un charitable, denunciatory and proscriptivel" Of this fault, prophets and apostles, nay the Great Prince of Reformers himself, end all his faithful disciples in later ages, have been accused ; and it is "enough lor the disciple that he be as his master." All that is demanded by those who urge this objection against Christian re formers is that they will consent to re gard them as unfortunate or mistaken men, and not sinners that great self-evi- oem principles oi lunaamental morality shall no longer be treated as such, but as mere matters of opinion of expediency .oi doumiui ana difficult solution ques tions concerning which the best of men may. be innocently disagreed I They only ask that politeness and courtesy to man shall suppress the declaration of the high and holy demands of God's law"!

Whenever we see . men deserting their professed principles, lowering down i uc Bianuara oi amy, ana uniting in tneir professed reformatory efforts with those whom every body knows to be recreant to the cause they had espoused, and choos ing these as their associates, in preference to those who have remained faithful the first thing we expect to hear from them is the boast that they occupy a broader platiorm, and throng a broader way, and are by no means exclusive and proscrip. live! What marvel if among these should be found those who imagine them selves elevated to a position so exalted, and to a freedom so unrestrained, that they ore no longer bound by the revealed will of God, and have no longer any need to regard the sanctions of the restraints of penal law I What benefit can the cause of moral reformation derive from the la bors of such men? What standard or model have they left, upon which to shape their reform? . 5. Measures Expedients Instruments. In a truly Christian reformation, as al ready observed, the proclamation of the Divine will, with a corresponding prac tice, must constitute the chief measures. Fof these, nothing can be made a subsU tute. and nothing inconsistent with them can be, for a moment, admissible. If the sin of oppression, for example, is to be grappled with, the Christian reform er will noc content bi nself with expe dients for removing the oppressed, instead oi convening or restraining tne oppressor still less, for the object of obtaining relief from the self-denying duty of reproving fir I the sinner, and thus avoiding the excite ment and opposition which such a course would occasion. All this is as evident as it is that a Christian reformation must be conducted. in conformity with the Divine law, in honor of its requisitions, and that such a reformation must consist in. the restoration of trantirttsors u state of submission to the Divine authority and control. r - ' Equally plain is it llitthe project of choosing the Itast of two erilv' or of "doing evil that pood mar come," upon the corrupt maxim that the tod sanctifies the means" can have no place in the ex pedients of a Christian Tetormation oi morals. For how can the morals of a people be reformed by a process which denies moral obligation and confouuds moral distinctions, in the outset If there could be such a thing as a mor al reformation, not founded upou the strict and rigid principles of moral law, then it might be true as some uream, that the platform of a moral reformation may be broad enough to include all who profess to be in favor of a reform, whatever prin ciples they may adopt, or whatever meas ures they may pursue. On this principle, (if principle it may be called which denies an principle,! expuisionisis ana aoomion- ists, immediatists and gradualists, those who honor their principles in the most trying circumstances and those who for the sake of " other great interests" delib erately postpone them, those whose acts correspond with their professions an i those who declaim loudly against oppress ors in one breath, and then eagerly clothe them with nower bv their own votes, in the next -may all harmonize together, as dear brethren and fellow laborers in the work of Christian reform ! Who does not see that Satan himself could scarcely contrive a policy better calculated to cor rupt and defeat 'all efforts for a thorough reform ? It may be true that many who refuse to discharge faithfully their duties may be made useful, under the arrangements of Divine Providence, in the removal of public evils. The same is true cf the most obdurate opposers of all good. Bat this furnishes no good reason why they should be honored as faithful fellow labor ers and the cause committed to their keep ing, and their unfaithfulness left unreprov- edrs"-.---.r.;--- : . The business of the Christian reformer should be to urge on all men the discharge of all their duties, and from such motives as are m accordance with the Divine will. God may indeed use. if he pleases. tho numerical strength and the power of vast multitudes, for the overthrow of op pression, who fail vitally, in the discharge of fundamental duties, and whose" motives he sees to be defective aod selfish, even in their most useful acts. But this does not alter the duty of the Christian reformer, who is neither permitted to lower the standard of the Divine requisitions, nor to recognize as Christian reformers the men who give no evidence of integrity of character. When Nehemiab " rebuked the nobles and rulers" of Israel for their oppression, and "set a great assembly against them" to awe them into a compli ance with his just requisitions, it is to be presumed that the arguments by which he urged them to this effort were the same that moved his own generous and magnan imous neart, the same that we know he urged upon , the oppres'sors themselves. But it would be too much to presume that they were all influenced exclusively by such worthy motives.' We do not read, however, that he rejected any of their votes, in the decision of that important controversy, nor, on the other hand, that they were indiscriminately invited to take the charge and direction of the moral enterprise then in progress. If we may judge from his own exptessions, the noble reformer had lew, it indeed any, co-aaju-tors, in his reformatory efforts, with whom he was accustomed to consult, f Nehemiah Chap. r. t " Then 1 consulted with myself."

EVERY SUBSCRIBER, AN AGENT X 500 new subscribers wanted! I propose to make every subscriber for the Telegraph an agent to procure new subscribers, and to offer liberal inducements to effort. My proposal is this: Those who will obtain new, paying subscribers, shall be entitled to twenty -five per cent. i. e. fifty cent9 for each subscriber obtained. Communications aod remittances can be made through Post Masters. Agents will inform subscribers in regard to the terms- two dollars payable any time within four months. It will be an easy thing for the friends of the Telegraph to procure five hundred or even one thousand new subscribers, during the eight remaining weeks of the present volume. Will they do it, for the liberal pay here offered? S3 Why will not females take hold of this work? The Telegraph has been very much proscribed on account of its advocacy of women's rights. Will the good sisters come forward and replace as much patron age-as has thus been withdrawn ? Brandon, July 20, 1841. The Essex ard Champlain Association will hold its anniversary at Keeseville, com- menciog on the First Wednesday of Octo ber, and no on the Second, as heretofore noticed. . A TEMPERANCE HOUSE. : w lna lemperance who. have M8100 10 traTel 00 lhe Stale Road, lead- mi d m . .-e, uuuga vnesier, warren county xx. x., will find a Temperance House, at the north end of Chester Village, kept by Oliver Ar- tiold. vhpra id.. -:u f . , ' wtJ WU1 aua inemselyes every way well accommodated. Friend Arnold informed me that he was not dependent on public patronage for a liviilg, ina8mach he has a trade, and has ability and disposi tion to work at if. But as many as love a neat and quiet house, and wholesome enter tainment for man and beast, will at least favor themselves, whether they favor friend Arnold or not, by calling on him. BE CONSISTENT. Those who oppose Christianity - are at ! once set down on the side of infidelity. Christians place them there, and infidels hold them there, with the utmost propriety. All assent, on all hands, to the correctness of this view. So, too, those who oppose the cause of Temperance are with equal propriety set down on the side of drinking. Their influ ence goes that way. The temperate reckon it sodrinkers reckon it so all reckon it so. Where then shall those Je placed who oppose Anti-Slavery ? Where, but on the side of slavery? The slaveholders view them to be on their side. Common sense and consistency place them there. Anti-Slavery is the remedy for slavery, just as Christianity is the remedy for infi delity, and Temperance the remedy for drinking. Not only all manner of direct hostility to these enterprizes, but any and every man ner of substitute for them, as legitimate remedies for the evils tbey are designed and calculated to exterminate, tends to the sup port and continuance of the evils, because, to say the least, attention is thereby turned away from what it ought to be directed to, and thus the mischief is strengthened while opposition to it is weakened. Let, therefore, those who Hatter them selves, and labor to convince others, that they are opposed to this or that sin, while they are more opposed to all the legitimate remedies for the same, look to it, and ascer tain well the ground whereon they stand. Peradventure neglect of attention to these things mayyet give .hem occasion for bitter regret. Unnatural and Unchristian In my recent tour, within the bounds of the Lake George Association, I was told of a man who sells poisonous drinks to his neighbors foi money. This man had. an uncle, a few years since, who sold and drank rum. After failing repeatedly in busi ness, he undertook to remove his family some distance to his wife's relatives. His family were put on board public conveyance and forwarded, he being left to follow. The family reached their destination; but the man did not arrive, and he was not heard of by his family until they heard of his death in a poor house to which place he had found way in his drunkenness! This nephew of his, of whom I commenced speak ing at the beginning of this paragraph, and who is now selling rum, has also had one brother die of drunkenness, in a most loath some and wretched condition but what is more, he has another brother who is now constantly buying liquor of him and getting drunk! But what is more yet, this man who is committing this outrage upon Chris- tianity and nature holds standing in the THE LICENSE QUESTION. The Editor of the Chronicle savs he bases his " third view" of this question on the same principle with the Mosaic law which suffered divorce. On the same ground he could find equal justification for wars of aggression and extermination. To be con- s"wmi lucuJue uuSi lojusuiy ana to nave advocated the removal and extirpation of the Indians. This was just as much a -restrictive" measure as the other. Public . I I opinion-would not prohibit the outrage, therefore it was proper and right to restrain it by licensing it ! But the Editor of the Chronicle must allow me to remind him that we live under another dispensation, whose Author pro nounced divorce to be adultery z.nd war to be murder. There is nothing in the letter or oF.Vw u umrucwuns inai wm warrant granting license for either of these sins, or any otner. loose who advocate licensing me sin oi selling poison, array taemselves on tne side oi the Fope against Martir L.u ther. Such should doff the name of Prot estants. - F o r the Telegraph . Stillwater, Saratoga Co. N. Y.

I The Lalta George Association Held its anniversary at Chester, Warren Co. N. Y on Wednesday and Thursday, the 1st and 2d instant. It was an, interest-, ing and harmonious session. The highest ground was taken against slavery and rum. The entire proceedings will appear in a fu ture number of the Telegraph. The fol lowing digest from the Letters was prepared by brother James Delany : DIGEST OF LETTERS. Athol. The delegates from this church have met us with uncheering intelligence. They complain of coldness, and that few come up to their solemn feasts, or to the help of the Lord against the mighty. Dis cipline is neglected, and consequently a lamentable disregard of covenant obligations characterizes the movements of many. The ordinance of the Lord's Supper has been but once administered to them in about four years. We are not surprized then to hear the lamentation, How is the gold become dim ! and the most fine gold changed ! But still they firmly confide in "the promises of God, that he will not cast off his people, nor suffer his faithfulness to fail." Brother S. J. Farnham preaches to them one-half the time. Bolton. The Bolton church could not present us with "cheering communication of revivals." But still they tenaciously hold to the pure doctrine of salvation by grace. "Religion is at a low slate among them, and feeble beats their pulse;" but still the love of God burns in the hearts of some. They appear to be troubled by diffi culties. "They do not see eye to eye," and differ in judgment in relation to some things. Few, they say, come up to the sol emn feasts ; M the love of many waxes cold, and iniquity abounds." They do not seem to fear, however, that , the bush, though it may be on fire, will not be consumed. They have no fellowship for the unfruitful works of darkness. They enjoy "the faithful la bors of Eld. Geo. B. Wells one-half the time." Caldwell $ Warrensburgh.We have received no pleasant tidings from this church. "Our difficuliies," say they, "continue and threaten our dissolution." The divisions among them are not in respect to doctrine, but practical operation. Some are desirous of peace, and endeavor to maintain the order of the Gospel. Many have been wouoded,and a few at least are being healed lheir trust, however, is in God, that he will not give his heritage to reproach, but tnat he may yet appear for their relief. They have had the faithful labors of Eld. Charles Williams half the lime since last May. Chester. This church has told us of a gradual declension during the nasi vear. Some are complained of for neglecting the means of grace for paying more attention to gold that endureth but for a short time than to the ordinances of the Lord's house willing to say fb the. ambassadors of Christ, "be ye clothed and fed," but much more they will not do. In short, the ways of Zion mourn anions them. " The voice of prayer which was wont to break the still- ness of nbht, resoundinz thro' these vales has ceased to be heard: one ha tnmpd m his farm, and another to his merchandize : leaving the bleeding cause of Christ almost unsunnorted and alnne" rt.it thn.h th 11. - - - w w 14 1 1 W lack union, there are some who are stem- mins the torrent. Thev have no settled pastor. Brother Caleb Smith preaches oc casionally, and Eld. Dickens has preached with them a few times of late. Hague. Although the brethren in Hague could not cheer our hearts with intelligence that they have attained lo a high decree of ppintuality, or that their number has been greatly increased, they acknowledge the goodness of God in preserving them hither- t0. They feel grateful to God for the con- stant manifestations of his love to them. They talk of apparent want of union and brotherly love. These things cause mourn ing, but ihey fear their mourning is not of a proper character. They are still opposed to the principle of American Slavery. Eld. o. R waii.n.k.. .i .

The Schiooa church tell us that nothwithslanding their utter unworth iness, the Lord has been gracious to them the past year. In a series of meetings held in November the labors of Hi3 servants were peculiarly blessed by the Lord, the brethren received new strength. A num ber of the youth were convinced of the im portance of . giving their hearts to God. They enjoy now a degree of union. Eld. J. B. Barker still preaches to them. Ticonderoga. The church in Ticonder oga have enjoyed some seasons of refresh ing from the presence of the Lord. In a pro tracted meeting in the fall great good was unquestionably done. They are pressed down by pecuniary embarrassments. Last spring lheir relation with Eld. J. Delany as. their pastor w as harmoniously dissolved. Since ihen they have secured the pastoral labors of Eld. Thomas Brandt which will they hope be useful. A Baptist Anti-Slavery Conven tion was held at Hamilton, N. Y. dur ing the recent anniversary week at that place. The resolutionsadopted are cop ied into the Telegraph, below, at the re quest of the Convention. The 9th resolution, under the head, "Slavery and our Benevolent Societies," I do not understand. With any construc tion that lam able to put upon it, it is al together unsatisfactory to my own mind. It savors too much of sacrificing Gospel principle to an unhallowed Mtiion. 1. Baptist Anli-Slavery Principles. Kesolved, That we, a Convention of the Baptist denomination in the State cf New York, assembled in Hamilton, N. x., during the commencement week of the Lit. &. Theo. Institution, August 13, 1041, avail ourselves of lhe present occa sion to avow to our brethren, and the world, that our principles are the fol low ing 1. That the system of American slave ry, by regarding immortal men, not as sentient boins, but as things or chattels personal, in the hands of their owners, is subversive of all human rights, and a sin against God, who haih made of one blood all nations of men. 2. That immediate repentance of the sin ot slavery is the duty of the master, and immediate emancipation, under the protection of law, the right of the slave. 3. I hat for us to extend the hand of church fellowship to those who continue to practice, or in any way justify, the sys tem 01 American slavery, alter due gospel labor, is virtually to bid them God sneed. and thus to become purtakers'of their evil deeds. 4. That to acknowledge slavery to be a great evil and a sin, and yet to put forth no efforts for its overthrow, and es pecially, to continue our unrestrained fel lowship with those who practice it, is pal pably inconsistent with the ohlisrations of the disciples of Him who was manifested to destroy the works of the devil, and who hath said. " he that is not for me is against me:" and in this sentiment distinguished brethren at the south have announced that they coincide. See Biblical Recorder for proof. 5. Thftlajust and holy God impera tively requires all who believe slavery to be a sin, to withdraw from those who practice it (after faithfully admonishing them in the spirit of the irosDen the hand of church fellowship; inasmuch as ihere can be no separation from sin, without separating from sinners. 6. That our, hope3 of success in the prosecution of our righteous enterprise rest on the light and love, the purity and power, of the gospel of Christ 7. :That our solemn and earnest annaat to the south, with regard to. iHp sm f slavery, are all addressed, not to slaves, uui 10 tne nearts nnd consciences of on southern brethren who hold them in bond age. 2. Necessity of Action. 8. Resolved. That believing as ir. A that the system of American slavery is a grievous system of iniquity, which threat ens to bring upon the nation and the church tha heavy judgments of a holy God, we entreat all our brethren earnest. ly to pray, in public and private, for iis speedy and peaceful removal, and to bear on every proper occasion their solemn testimony against this sin, and thus rlpar tneir own souls irom its guilt 3. Slavery, and our Benevolent So ciet lies. 9. Resolved, That while we dn nnf fuse to act in our benevolent soMPtI, based on the principles of church ellow- ii.p, wiui any 01 our brethren who mav differ from us on the subject of slavery, we aflectionately su.-ropt to ucy uo noi exclude from an equal Participation in the labors and responsi bilities of these societies any friends of our Lard Jesus on account of their oppsition to slavery; inasmuch as such a course appears to manifest more sympathy for the slaveholder than for those who grieve for his great sin, and may induce breth Ten to separate from such societies, and form i. Slavery, and Foreign MuZT 10. Resolved, That althauh weth some of our brethren, acted unwisd the last Triennial Convention, in 15 to this subject; yet in view of the w ufthe'pferishingr heathen, we entreat!'! our brethren not to withhold their co butions from the foreign mission caase this account, but to tell their grief toll,0-11 God and thejr brethren ; andif any not conscientiously contribute their "fu" through the general treasury, we recom mend them to commit such "freewill off ings to the executive committee of T Am. Bap. Anti-Slavery. Conventi through their Treasurer, Simon 0. si? ley, Esq., Boston, Mas3., who will appJT priate them according to the direction tho donors. c 5. Neio Tests. 11. Resolved, That in declarit,? 0... intention to'withdraw all fellowship those who, after suitable gospel ndmoat lion continue in the sin of slavery tr earnestly protest against the charge of ia. troducing " a new test to church" fujln,v. ship," inasmuch as we ere but carrvim into practice the Divine precept, published more than eighteen hundred years 30 and adhered to by Baptists from lure fm. memorial : "Have no fellowship w;hth unfruitful works of darkness, bui rd! reorove them.", 6. Miscellaneous Resolutions. 12. Resolved, That religious periodi cals which apologize for the sin of s'avc holding, and discountenance the cause oi abolition, are unworthy the patronage cf Baptists, and of all uncompromising advo. ca?es of civil and religious liberty, n;:d 0; the impartial law of God. 13. Resolved, That in our opinion k New York Baptist Register does noj ri that influence in favor of the cause of th? slave which it ought to exert, whi.'e r. does much lhat tends to quiet the con science of the slaveholder ; and it is thee fore our solemn conviction that the Ihy tist denomination of the State ol New York can not consistently Ions' cosu ne to sustain that important periodica! a such a course. 14. Resolved, That the abolition cus is based on fundamental pu'ncipks c' right, and most prevail before the b.i!:yrii day of millenial glory can dawn upomhe world ; and therefore demands thn rn:;n wnance and support of the pu'pit a d nrel. anr! thp h the churches of the saints. 15. Rt solved. That ihn I w - v 11 1 j . rj ' n i u . 1 v.'.'j v , : onization Society's enterprise na c; passes by the slave, like the priori the Levite, but affords its pa'.rona-r to people of color in a way which f is'i.?. uncnristian prejudice aoainst them. tends to perpetuate their decradr.ion in the country of their binh ; uhich oocr? ifs arms to receive the lowest cL?s white emigrants from foreign m'i. n rrj elevates them to a participation in ail ik privileges of our free institutions.
