Obtain any. satisfactory information re
specting the Mendi country in addition to
what is already known ; but Mr; Ray
mond has obtained through a certain Mr.
Parker, who is well acquainted and has
traded much with' them, and frain other
sources, very definite-knowledge of the
character of the Mendian people.
' They are represented as very warlike
and some of the greatest slave dealers are
in that par: of Africa They even war
amonw themselves for the purpose of get
ting slaves. - If the Mendians who were
in this couniry? should return into the
the midst of their own, it is feared ihev
would be immediately taken and sol3
again. It is therefore deemed uusafe, for
the present at least, to go back into the in
terior, and Grand'Cape Mount, on the
border? of their, country, is now supposed
to be the most eligible site as it respects
health, &c,' for the establishment of the
Mission. Here their rejatives can have
access to them -and the mission can be
gradually working its way into' the inte
rior. Mr. Steele's return however may
lead to a 'different choice of location.
Some of the Amistad Africans are found
to be Mendians, and. some belong to an
other tribe called Bulloms, and there is
some disagreement among them respect
ing the question with whom the Mission
shall be identified. Their eves are turned
to different locations. This however it is
hoped will not be a serious difficulty;
Sorue of them indicate a strong disposition
to lay aside their clothing and return to
their former savage life of nakedness. One
strong incentive to this is the greegree
marks as they call them, .which are found
upon their bodies. These are marks of
honor, diplomas which have great mean
ing with them. Ihey receive them when
they pass through certain branches of
learning, or acquit, themselves or feats of
agili'y or danger, and are then entitled to
change their names or adopt an addition
to them and not before.
i It will probably require great effort to
restrain some of them from a,relapse into
their former habits. With one or two ex
ceptions they remain firm to their temper
ance principles, drinking nothing which
will intoxicate. ' The Europeans gener

Privileges of Household Baptism
The Rev. Thomas Turner, a mioister of the
Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Ten
nessee, has published a pamphlet entitled "An
appeal to Christians of the Southern Slates on
the relative duties of master and servant." He
contends for the duty of baptizing servants or
slaves, on the ground of the example of Abraham,
ine lamer ox me launiui. ihd editor of the
Christian Index, of June 4, 1842, a .Baptist paper,
thus comments upon the case, and incidentally
testifies to the fact that it is a common occurrence.
for professed believers to sell their baptized
stave: who me question Between the baptists
and Pedo-Baptists we have nothing to do here,
but we think there is a question between their
Master and them both, each ou his own princi
ples, as to the right of a heliever to sell his bap
tized brother. 76 .
: This assumption i& founded upon the covenant
made with Abraham, and the obligation fixed up
on him in relation to circumstances, in the fol
lowing words; "And ye shall circumcise the
flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be a token of
the covenant between me and you. And he that
is eight days old shall be circumcised among you,
every man-chi d in your generations, he that i
born in the house or bought with money of any
stranger, which is not of thy seed." Gen. xvii:
Hi 12.
Now, how any individual can infer fiom this
passage, the propriety of baptizing those 'born
in the-house," and at the same time be unible to
make the same inference in relation to those
bought with money," we are totally at a loss to
conceive. Air. turner therefore, appears -jn our
view, to be the most consistent Pedo-2?aptist of
any whose writings have come under our no
tice. ,
We would not be ill-naturel towardi those
with whom we differ on religious subjects, but we
must be permitted to say, that we have long been
of the opinion, that circumstances have more to
do in shaping the ecclesiastic policy of many
churches, than the facts and teachings of the New
Testaments themselves. If the baptism of adult
negroes, upon their being bought with the money
of believing masters, were as popular as that of
helpless babes, we wight possibly hear of differ
ent inferences from those with which we now
sometimes meet. Covenant relations might be
found to exist where they are not now recogniz
ed, .v- . w.
Mr. T. states and meets some of ihe difficulties
in the way of carrying out his scheme of negro-
baptism, .out there is one which we suppose lie
did not think of. A believing master sometimes
buys a servant with his money; of course, accord
ing to Mr. T.'s plan, this servant is in covenant
relation with his master, and entitled to one of
the M sealing ordinances" of the church ; but very
soon he is sold again, perhaps to an unbeliever ,
and then the poor, fellow is out of the covenant
again ; so he may be in and out, according as he
falls into the bauds ot a De never or oi an nmuei

We are happy to find the name of I.
C. Baker, our Assemblyman from this
country, placed in the negative on the
Virginia resolutions. It is greatly to his
credit that be dared thuj place himself in
opposition to the vote of his party. The
Message of Governor Seward, in which
he refuses to hand over officially the Vir

coolness, it will require some au
thority higher than the Virginia E.xecu-
live, or even the Legislature of this State,
to drive Gavemor Seward. He has taken
too careful
bouts" in this controversy, to be scared by
a list of resolutions. Friend of Man. -
