The above table may be of use for Teference to those who may not hare the Minutes' from whence it was taken. VERMONT TELEGRAPH. BRANDOiN, WEDNESDAY., APRIL 20, 1842. Editorial Responsibility. Brother Bronson, in his article to be found on the first page, manifests that hitherto he has been in the habit of holding me as an endorser for all the sentiments published in the Telegraph from the pens of others, unless I show to the contrary in comments. As this view of his may be an index to the views of others, it is proper that I should "define my position "in regard to the mat ter. Now I can not quite think that brother Bronson had always in fact done, what he seems to think be has been at liberty to do in the case. I will not go back to enumer ate cases. I will specify only a single case of recent occurrence. Take the Address o the Methodists on -Burlington District. Did brother Bronson suppose that Lendors ed, as my sentiments, every thing contained in nbat Address? Look 'particularly at ,vhat is there said of tradicalism.1 It was manifest that the writer of that piece was utterly ignorant ol the derivation and iitera meaning of the word, or else that he w,as perfectly careless in bis use of it. He used it as though it was incapable of being used in a good sense as though radicalism was, in itself, necessarily wrong, and could never be right. This was a mistaken use of the word. The word comes from the Latin, radix, which signifies root, or foundation of a thing. Hence, to be a radical, is to take things by the roots. He who weeds a gar den must be a radical, or he wilf effect lit tleso in regard to him who would root out vices and sins from the world. Take slave ry, if you please. The thing which strikes most effectively at the root or foundation of this overgrown enormity, is the preaching of the doctrine that it is sinful under all cir cumstances to hold human beings as. prop erty and that the sin ought to be immedi ately repented of. and forsaken. He who preaches this doctrine is the greatest possi ble radical 'on this subject. 'From all this, it was plain to my mind that the writer of the article did not understand the proper signification and . use of the word. There were other things in the article which I did not suppose any one would think I necessa- t I " M.ABJiIm lk.4tniA T Vll K1 1 O K .i i 2 i. mi f I ; mem wiinoui comment, ine names ui vie Chairman and Secretary of the meeting ' wete signed toil; and I was willing to let readers form their own opinions of its merit. , Brother Harrower,-of Waterbury, sent me the manuscript and it was not in my heart to be so illiberal as to exclude it. I publish ed it cheerfully, as I do, and shall, a great many other pieces which contain things that 1 do not endorse. TC? propose, in future, to 6e very lib eral towards all Christians all lovers of truth and holiness and human salvation in the -matter of publishing writers to be considered themselves alone responsible Jor what : they communicate. To insure a place in the Telegraph, every piece invoic ing in any way a statement of facts, must be accompanied with a responsible signa ture to be at least kept in my hands: and 'the more who consent to accompany their published communications with their own proper signatures, the better. It strikes pu thai the propriety and usefulness of the entire course marked out in this para graph will be apparent to every liberal $ unbiased mind. popular Religions Leaders and Reform , Tlilnga la West flutland West Ruilandi Saturday, April 2, 1842.

' Bat, Mr. Editor, I did not design so much an epistle of commendation, ns to . pTCclairalo yotf, and if thought proper on your part, to the readers of tStf Telegraph, the welcome news that the principles of peaceas taught by our Savior, are begin ning to take root in this place. Yesterday, Friday, April the lst,T was in attendance at a meeting of the Congregational Church in this parish, u hen, to my utter aston ishment, were read by its present pastor or its consideration, and adoption or re- ectton, a preamble and resolution purport ing to have been received from the Asso ciation last met I believe at Windsor of which the following is the substance, as near as roy memory serves me " Whereas, believing as we do it to be mor ally wrong and inconsistent with Chris tian character, to use the common mode of settling international disputes, by an appeal to arms, Resolved, that we by the word of God are prohibited its use, and bound as Christians to use our influence to secure the same end." , Now, Sir, this seems a little as it should be. . It seems to betray a respect for, and belief in the principles of Christianity. It is prefer ring, ns it should do, tor our Legislator, and rule of action, One of no earthly ori gin, even Christ tGe Head of the Church. And now I am constrained to say so far so' pood. But the leaven of divine grace seems not yet to have leavened the whole lump, The people here are apparently sleeping over the sin of slavery. . The very teim abolitionist, with some few exceptions, is one of reproach, and he who has the mor al courage to proclaim himself one, must expect derision, and to become a laughing stock truly for fools. And do you nsk where rests the sin 1 on whose head does it fall with greatest weight? 1 answer on the Church I ! -Oh tell it not in Gath ! that the Church, the representative cf Christ on earth, should have such a plague spot ensiamped upon her forehead, or such a viper to coil ir. her bosom. But, Sir, facts are stubborn things truth is truth ; and he who is placed as a watchman over this people, speaks to his little flock, of slavery, as being drawn from the word of God. After reading the 123d Psalm, 2d verse.ot the aforementioned meeting,which reads thus : "Behold as the eyes of serv ants look unto the band of their masters and as the evesofa maiden unto the hand of her mistress," &c, he attempts break ing, the bread of truth and parcelling it out to his wailing flock, by telling them that the terms, servant, and slave, are synonymous, and thus pressing upon their minds that, as the slave looks to his mas ter, so we are to look to our heavenly Father. Now, Mr. Editor : if this be a right construction of language, I have it yet to learn. To be a servant, implies a master, and if to be a servant is to be a slavethen to be a master is to be a slave holder. This must be as apparent as the axiom "things that are equal to the same thing, are equal to one another;' and if to be a master is to be a slaveholder ac cording to the common acceptation of the term, 1 ask where is the spot wbereslave ry does not exist? Where is emancipated Havti ? and from what- was it emanci pated? Where is Brittannia's Isle, where slaves have long ceased to breathe, and the so-called free Slates of the North ? Surely there are no such places for here are found servants and masters, and con sequently, according to clerical teachings, slavery exists here; and go where we may, the same is true. Therefore all is slavery.'' -t But again, and lastly, if to be a servant is to be a slave, then also to be a maiden is to be a slave for the Psalmist of Is rael in the honesty of his heart here de clares them conjunctly that as one is," so is the other that as are the eyes of the servant, so are those of the maiden. Oh! my Brother in the cause of truth and hu manity 1 when will men cease to tax their ingenuity to palliate the crime of slave ry and that too upon the broad princi-J pies of Christianity, ar.d the christian rev elation ? vAn Abolitionist. REMARKS. My Brother will allow me to caution him against receiving the indications, or pretensions, io regard to Peace, for more than thryaie worth. Judging from the source whence they emanate, I am sus picious of them. .The haters of Non-resistance feel driven to do something, to save their sinking character. Professing to be followers of Christ, it would not do for them to be open defenders of alt war. So thev talk against the 'coromou mode of settling international dispute" jusf as the Notthern pro-slavery church and clergy will talk against slavery, to save their character before the world, while they are the bitterest and most effi-J cienienetmesto Anti-Slavery in the world. Where they can keep the people sufficiently io the dark on ue subject, ihey will go for Colonization. Foi a set of men who hold to defensive tear to get together and make a show of opposition to tear, is juU as consistent, and will be worth just as much for the abolishment of man killing, as for a set of moderate drinkers to assemble them selves and makers show of opposition to drunken- nets. For the Tele era ph.. P ANTON IVIGIIT SIDE Brother Murray : In order to aid in exposing the "de ceptive flourish" of the ".popular clergy' and their allies, and to make bare their fraudulent manceuvreings, to accomplish their malicious designs, I have a few re marks to make with regard to a compli ment, said to ha ?e been paid us by A. Harvey, of Jridport, at the late Conven tion at Brandon " Panton right side up." Now I would be glad to know that Panton is' right side up,' as the phrase is ironically understood. If it is, I have yet to learn what right side up" means. If in his use of the phrase, he wishes it to bear its literal signification why. then it is well enough, and true enough. Our town itself " is right side up," and has been, wo suppose, ever since the flood. At any" rate, as it was applied to none, save ours and two others, we are obliged to infer that several towns about us are wrong side up. If he means to be under stood that the church here is in a peacea ble and prosperous slate, " those knowing the state of things" here, know what to think of it. A word in regard to thisand you can judge for yourself. , We have witnessed the pernicious ef fects of this modern system of priestcraft, here, for a considerable length of time. The church has been a theatre of perpet ual discord and confusion, for two or three years past, the sole cause of which has been, an effort of the ministers to sway the scepter over the church, and to make every man's mind and conscience conform to their own notion of things. In noticing their management of things, 1 ha ve often been reminded of the remark of the "Doc tor" that "men are dupable animals: quacks in law, medicine, and theology kjiow this, and practice from their knowl edge." But there is a M set" of individu als, that are so "amazing headstrong" that they cannot make them mind., The church has lately, on motion of their minister, excluded one of this unraanage able set," in order, 1 suppose, to silence the rest, or frighten them to obedience. What they intend to do next, I am not able to say. But, to return. 1 suppose brother Har vey meant that we were right side for a " new paper." He forms his opinion, I suppose, from the appearance of things alone, the minister being decidedly in fa vor of it. Ever since the meeting of the Association last fill, we have been antici pating the Semi-Annual Meeting here. We went to meeting at the oppoinled time, heard the " introductory sermon," (to what, I wonder ?) the ' Exegeses and 4 Essays." This consumed the time, so that it became fiecessary to adjoujn. At the close of the exercise, some one the clerk I think said that the business of the Association would be referred to a " committee,1 that the audience might be entertained with preaching, during the next day. I thought. it rather strange at the time. But it has become fashionable, it seems, to do public business in private. After sermon, in the afternoon of the sec ond day, brother Harvey said he wished to detain the audience a few moments. There was a business of importance that demanded their attention. He then said tie wished to introduce for their consider ation "a new Baptist paper." After mak ing a pompous" display of lhi sheet, he proceeded to read the address of our committee," and thrtr M reasons for com mencing the Journal." To this he ap pended some complimentary remarks to the Journal; and some direct insinuations against the Telegraph. He concluded his rt marks, by making an appeal to the sympathies of the people, in favor of broth er Maxham, stating that he had got up this " specimen number" at an expense of some fifty or a hundred Dollars, upon his own pecuniary responsibility, which to him would be a total loss, in case the. pa per failed. He was not aware, perhaps, that he was touching upon the most deli cate organs of their whole system, viz; their purse strings. After the whole flourish, they succeeded in obtaining the 4 entire number" of two subscribers, on the ground. How many they have ob tained since, I am not able to state. Brother Harvey, in private conversation, said several things against the Telegraph and its Editor. He said that they bad tried to make a compromise with brother Murray; .buubey could doiothing with him ; and that he (brother Murray) had imbibed Quaker principles, with regard to the Sabbath.- And finally, brother Mur ray notwithstanding the whole clerical array againslyou, for telling the unblush ing truih. hf ncsnloH ihst I ho t!lorr- i v--' - .-.vo'-r- jias friends in Panton yet, brother Har vey's opinion tothe contrary notwiihsyind- - G. mg.

Brother Murray Sir; ; I find that I have injured the feelings of some of my prudent brethren, fn pub lishing an article, in which I said some thing about strict economy. If I said anything that was incorrect in that arti cle, I would thank any one to point it out I to me. 1 have discovered one mistake where I said 46 cents, when it should be 84 otherwise I have not noticed any. But, say they, we fear that what you have said will injure the- Missionary cause. hy ? Because rou have told a great story about great expenses m managing the Missionary concerns. Well, if this story ought not to be, told, 1 am sorry I told it. But, I think differently. I be lieve that the people have a good right to know all about how thtrr money is ex pended : and if it i3 of imperious neces ity that such vast sums be paid to agents and managers, (the amount of which I scarcely hinted at.) the people ought to understand it, and make preparations to meet it. The aseot should'state it wber- everjie goes. It should be declared pub licly in every missionary sermon; and on account of the exorbitant expense, that is unavoidable, in collecting funds, and managing them at home, the people should prepare to hand forward large sums. People are apt to make calculations in proportion to the probable cost. And if it exceeds their expectation, and they find themselves deceived, they will be careful i how they get taken in, in future. I be lieve in open, frank, honest deal, I want to see a thing just as it is; and then 1 know how to calculate for it. If I get an idea that it costs $60Q to support a missionary in Burmah, and I, and a few others undertake to do it, laise the mon ey, and put it into an agent's bands for that purpose and after a while 1 find that he fthe missionary never realized one-half of it; but that it was worked up before it left America, I shoui.l feel cha grined, injured, much disappointed and perplexed about it. But if I knew before hand all about it, I should prepare for it, and thus avoid the perplexity. Open day light business Lmuch prefer. I never liked smuggling. Yours for plain dealing, Amos Churchill. Hubbardton, April 11, 1842. P. S. Possibly l am wrong in this case, for I always had great occasion to know that I was not infallible. But I think 1 am perfectly willing, and even desire to be corrected where I am in error. I do think I wish the Missionary enterprize abundant success. And that "the Word of the Lord might have free course" to the ends of the world "and be glorified." With respect to extraordinary furniture, ornaments, equipage and pay, I suppose I feel different from what I should, had 1 not always been under the necessity of laboring hard, and at great disadvantage, for a living: and that with the strictest economy, and in humble styta. And feel ing that the pittance which I could possi bly spare being thrown into a bag with holes, I might reasonably fear might nev er be discovered, after having been shook and shuffled over by those.who have been accustomed to manage by thousands, in stead of by units, shall I presume to crave the indulgence and faithfulness of my brethren, while I name one thin more I Can I be justified, while lsay that I have had peculiar feelings when 1 have seen a missionary agent address an assembly with touching eloquence on the subject of the degradation, oppression, distress, de lusion and danger of the heathen world; for the want of the knowledge of the Glorious Gospel of out Savior I While he displays, in enchanting and glowing colors the high, exalted and blessed privi leges we enjoy who are so highly favored with that glorious and unmerited boon. While he urges, and presses on the as sembly the duty of self-denial, of gratitude, of liberality and of the imperious necessity of strict economy in dress, ornamen's, luxury, of all kinds, that they might be stow largely Cor the spread of ih-u glori ous Gospel (which is calculated to render us meek, lowly, modest, humble, liberal and charitable,) for the emancipation of the heatheq world from its thraldom, deg radation -and danger. And then to see ladies stripping their selves of their orna- ment5,and resigning them cheerfully, and rejoicing that they have anything to spare for the benefit of such a glorious cause.

Mv Brother Murray ; 1 had heard, a few weeks since, that an aiiemnt had been made to bring you be fore the grand-jury for trial for a breach of the Sabbath ; aud my instant reply was, that 1 did not believe .a juryman could be found iu the County of Rutland, who would bestow one moment's . notice, upon such a complaint. If there is such a law in Ver mout, it can be vieweu in no other light than as tlie relic of by-gone days, and total ly unworthy the nouee ofvchrisiian magis trates and neople of ihe.. nineteenth century. The precept which enjoins tbe recogni tion of tne day in seven, or one seventh part of the time as set apart from secular to sacred use, 1 view to be as obligatory upon christian people now, as it was upon the people of Israel at the lime of its pro mulgation. The precept is found in the hvv of ihe Ten Commandments. It was delivered to Moses under the same solemn and awful sanctions; and was engraven with them upon tables of stone, denoting its equal importance and perpetuity of obli gation. The reasons upon which the law was founded still exist, and the law itself must therefore siill exist, and be obeyed equally with all ihe other moral precepts of God to man, by all religious people.. Bui there is another view 1 wish to take of this subject in connection with the late attempt to punish you for a violation of this command. It is found in the first table, as divines have termed it, and relates exclu sively to our duty to God our Maker. Hu man legislation, therefore, can have nothing io do about it. Civil society may as well enact laws to compel me to the observance of any other religious duty as to compel me to "remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy." I may perform all ihe duties of re ligion and morality, or not, and in the man ner I may choose, and no human bein' may say to me, What doest ibou ? so long as 1 in jure not him in his person, his estate or his good name. 1 may even set up graven images in my house and worship ihern: for my idolatry I am accountable io God only. He that regardeth the Sabbath day, re gardeth it unto the Lord. And he thai re gardeth not the Sabbath day, to the Lord he doth not regard it.' It is U he Lord's day? Time has been in New-Englaod when "church arid state" Ievened and ruled eve rything. A church could not be gathered, nor a miniter settled, but it must be done according to law. And il a Gluarker refuse to veil his hat in the time of public worship, or il poor anabaptist happened to smile or depart during the xmpoitani transaction ot christening an infant, ihe swurd of the civil magistrate punished the transgression. One was fined thirty pounds, and on refusing to pay it received thirty stripes upon his naked baek, "well laid on." lOihers were im prisoned, and Roger Williams, "who had less light than fire in him," was bar.ished, for' holding that ''every one should have liberty to worship God according to the dic tates of his own conscience." cut even in those days of superstiiion and intolerance, 'here were some among the "godly oriho dox" themselves, who saw and remonstrated against so ungracious an interference of ihe civil power iu matters" purely religious. But a sermon, preached in Boston, from the text concerning Moses and Aaron "kissing each olherin the mount," put the subject to rest; and clerical usurpation and "orthodoxy" went on as be lore. , t was truly glad to learn by the Tele graph, that your alleged trespass upon the Sabbath was not so reckless as had been represented. You have need to watch very circumspectly, for the tongue of opposition to call it by no Inrder name is out wide against you. And after all, it may vet prove that-you are ua man more sinned asamst than sinmns. I think it wilt. But in closing your remark, if I understand you a kind of challenge seems io"be thrown out for a discussion of the ''principle" &c. Do "you then hold that the precept enjoining the observance of the Sahbatli, has been abrogated, detached from the inspired code and no longer binding upon man? After what has taken ; place, as a public man, and 4 a conductor ot tne religious press, your friends and subscribers to the telegraph are entitled to know what ground in this respect, you stand upon, or mean in future io occupy, fermit me io express my hope that you will do thus much, but that no extended discussion of the subject, one way or the other, will ever appear iu the columns of ihe Telegraph, or be in any oiher way promoted by you.
