Great exertions were made the mountain labored abundantly tut the mouse was scarcely brought forth FIiHt tcdI farther than anything else done, to produce injurious effects was, the attempt to obtain for the proceedings the countenance and in fluence of the Christian: religion. In this they succeeded so far -as to get the aid of one of its professed ministers, and I know not but the countenance of some others. An attempt was made at coalition with the tern perance movement.- But this did not 'sue ceed. The " ministers ortemperance !were unyielding.' It took the ministers of mod era religion to make such a compromise. But the time has gone by when everything placing itself under the name religion can be passed off for Christianity when the devotees of the former are necessarily and as a matter, of course recognized as the faithful; servants of the latter."- True, the chaplain of this cannon drum, and bombast affair had the hands of the ordaining coun cil aid on him, with much solemnity, fol lowed with a' weighty charge,! but five days before.

The "Spec tator" who reported for the Telegraph said noth ing about it ; V " -.'.. t ns DVEL Between T. F. Marshall and W. Webb, one a member of Congress from Kentucky, and the other the editor of the N; Y. Courier and Enquirer, which had been for some days anticipated, according to the surmise in the papers, has in very deed taken place. It was fought just over the Delaware line, on Saturday morning last at sunrise, and terminated- after .the exchange of a second shot, with a wound ia the left leg of CoL Webb. How much honor these cool murderers in heart have lost, . and - now much they have gained, the savage class of duelists to which they belong may deem it their province to decide. The moral portion of community, however, who judge of the conduct of men by a different code than that of honor, will, nevertheless, have their opinion;. and ns they weigh men'a conduct and character here by a statute which stamps with eter nal infamy hereafter the impenitent mur derer, they will have but one opinion of such a transaction, and that,' of its being one of the greatest crimes of which human beings can be guilty. And the opinion of the latter infinitely outweighs that of the en tire ranks of bloody duelists. " But there is honor in it, surely, says the duelist; And what is the honor only that of a deliberate murderer. What has been Webb's honor since the fatal duel between Gravesand Ciliey Has not the finger of reproach, as terrible as that oFBanquo's at Macbeth, been pointing at him from every section of the Union as one stained with the blood othat unhap py man? Has not Wise stood pale and trembling before the piercing gaze of the venerable Adams in the halls of, Congress when he has pointed at the crimson stain on his fingers? Has not Graves felt the insupportable slings of a culprit down to the present time Could he; travel through the Union-without beinsr the ob ject of most distressing observations, with out hearing the audible whisperings in public places and public conveyances, -There-is the murderer of Ciliey 1" What would he not give could the sting be extracted from his bosom and CUley be resided to life! What is the fatteand honor he has" achieved, and how does it seem to him now but-a lash ofsrbrpions on his soul t What would he not give for the recovery cf his lost tranquility ! And who would take his place for all the honors the world can bestow 7 - T s And now suppose, in the. present case, the wound in Webb's leg had been a wound in his heart; what then? His antagonist would have fled and left his dead body to have been taken home to his wife and childien, and carried to the grave oy a train 01 mourners I Kentucky, his native State, no doubt isrould have been his place of refuge from the claims of the law. He wou'd have felt himself there a fugitive from j a slice, end when he sat down to sober reflection, the statn of the murderer would have been found on his oni; n'IS agonizing musings, too, how terruo would thay have been harrowed 7rnewsPaPerlie onWded with the details cf the dreadful transaction ! Not one couli be opened in which he would not hav3 read the appalling narra tive cf the sorrows cf iho'wifa he had made a widow, and of the children he had mada orphans; and at the head cf many a column ho would have seen, Thos. i llarshxU, the murderer of Webb, pub lie' sympathy he' would have found unu sually awakened in behalf of hislfallen foe, and many whom he bad counted as irienus no wouia nave uuxovereu avoia- ing his.society; Could he have borne all this? Were he as hardened, and callous as Aaron Burf, he migbt have borne it, but with the ordinary sensibilities of most men he would have sunk in despair. If this picture be not charged with extrava gance, and we are confident it is not, what a miserable wretch is the dt. list after all, and how dreary his cor 'ition if he is suc cessful in ; murdering' is fellow 1 And jook at these combatants now they have exchanged their, shots; are their charac ters improved ? do they stand higher in the .community ? Far from it. Both are objects of reproach. Webb, to be sure, could fall but little below the place he has long occupied : but Marshall - who had just risen to uncommon honor by his stand in the cause of temperance, has plunged himself down into irrecoverable infamy. Murderer in purpose is distinctly legible on the forehead of both. N. Y. Bap. Register 'REMARKS. I have two objects in copying the fore going from the Register. - . . ; K The presentation of several sound arguments against, duelling, ,-and correct views in regard to it, which are exhibited in different parts of the piece. J need not designate them. .The reader will find them. . " 1 - . .: -2. I wish to call attention to the Edi tor's views here expressed, " by way of comparing mem wun otner views wnicn be advocates, . These duelists' he calls ' deliberate murderers." 2 He says, ' mur der in purpose is distinctly legible on ' the forehead ' of both?! I Nothing could; be more true. But how it sounds from the New-York Baptist Register, the advocate of breaking men's necks and strangling them to death I the supporter of national duelling ! In the very next column of the same paper containing the piece I am now reviewing, speaking of the 4th - of uiy in prospect, ne says the day 11 is to be celebrated in .this city Utica with a mag nificent procession oj the military and fire companies, and Washingtohian, and other temperance societies, and an oration by Thomas Flandreau, Esq. Mn. Flan dreau is a prominent Washingtonian, and no doubt in the course of his address; will notice particularly the temperance reform, ihough the great thime, no. doubt, will ; be the revolutionary struggle of our fathers, and the mighty results of their triumph. The einphasizing is my own. .' He;srizes on the love and veneration which child ren have for their' fathers," and makes capital out of it in support of, wholesale man-slaying. . It was done. by 'ourfath ers"- therefore the wholesale duelling between the professing Christians of Great Britain and the professing Christians of America, and the profane men of both, was right ! Perhaps he ; will undertake .- to place all the sin on the side of B ritain. Does he undertake to make this distinc tion between these individual duelists ? Not at all. Nobody could tell from his language used which he would censure most. Perad ventu re, on refleclion.'if call ed on to do it, he would undertake to make alldue distinction. Still he would not al low that any cause or provocation could justify the resort to arms between the in dividuals. Whatever pretext might be bro't, he would exclafm- M murderer in puspose is distinctly legible on the fore head of both." If individual duelists, then; are murderers, gander zM possible circumstances," whit; are Rational duel ists? If it be murder for two individuals to will and intend to slay each other, what is it for td com ntu'njties states ox nations, to do ihe tame' th ing ? . If it be a' h arden -ing, murderous practice calculated to induce snd lead to the : consummation pre pared for lof. individuals; to exercise themselves with pistols, rifles broad swords, or other deadly -.weapons, in or der to being in readiness for combat, what is it for communities to " train" up their yqung men by law, preparing them and having them inreadioess for the same bloody and execrableworkl : Da notour miliuiry trainings bear the same; relation to wholesale, national duels, that the pre paratory practices of indivrduais do to in dividual duels? PreciselyvThe instru ments, in both cases, are the instruments of death. The preparation, in both, cases is for human slaughter for the wilful and deliberate destruction 'of human life. And yet this popular religious leader and teacher, the Editor of the New-York Bap tist Register calls the' one a magnificent procession of the military,'' and encourao-. es to making ono of the results of these horrible preparations which' poured out rivers of blood, mingled with the tears of widows and orphans4 the gTeat theme" of discourse to which he would direct the attention and invite the admiration of the multitude.- As I said of the Register, in reference to temperance that it was not in the power of drunkards , and tipplers to do that cause so" much harm so I say 'of it in reference to the eause of peace .and love. It is not in the power of the pro fane and violent world so efficiently to sustain and perpetuate man-tilling, as it is done by such popular religious guides and teachers a? this Editor. ; I beseech them to review their doings, and to exam ine and scrutinize their motives. . , A Cu for Deacon DaTenporl I - In another column, under the iieaoTof V General Intelligence," will be found a letter copied from the Vermont Chroni cte,. written, to that paper by President Wheeler, of Burlington College. From his own statement, it appears that thej - Rev; Dr." wrote this letter to the Chron icle on the Sabbath ! 'What say you to this, Deacon Davenport?' ;J . v -. Becauseorne of the Lands did a Tittle w work of; necessity " in the Telegraph office," on . a Sabbath, . without being re qufredbr directed by me to do it, Dea.

He sent to Hubbardton to employ brother Churchill to take up the case, but did not succeed. - He must have been very ignorant of .the character of the man he was tiying to make a tool of. How many others he tried, before he found one; whom he could-employ as his instrument, I know not.; And whether the Editor 61 the Chronicle was . AiV'in strument, in the' part he acted for some one who employed. him in "the case, neith. er of them have yet; told meot her wise than by tacitly Consenting lo'what I al ledged ;, viz; that the, circumstances of the case made it satisfactorily plain tome that the Editor of the Chronicle' was used as the Deacon's tool He has never denied it, Nor has the Deacon. I presun?e they will not deny it, .because tbey dare not. -: It will be remembered that lheEditor of the Chronicle; on his own responsibil ity, told his readers that "a report unfa vorable to , the "'Editor , of the .JTermont Telegraph reached us, from a responsible source, with a request that we shoulJpub lish it,' &c. This report pertained to the little ? work of necessity? which I havu before spoken oH t No w here is a com munication published in the Chronicle, which was written for that paper on the Sjibbath. ' : Does the Editor of the Chron icle think it " unfavorable " to the Rev. D. D." who wrote it, that he did such a thing ? If so, why not have the honesty and fidelity to say it ? If not if he jus tifies the Rev. Dr.'. in furnishing man uscript for the Chronicle on the Sabbath, of course he must justify his compositor, under-like circumstances, in pulling the same manuscript m type on the Sabbath and then why not by the same rule take the impressions on the Sabbath-distribute and read the same on the Sabbath ? &c. &c. &c. - Can - Deacon Davenport, who is a lawyer, afford any salutary advice in the case, for the benefit of the Rev. D. D.", President of the Vermont Uni versity, and of; the Jesuitical rabbi of the Vermont Chronicle ? 'Doubtless human law is the paramount Vhing with them; A.nd if lawyer ; Davenport, the Deacon, can shov them wherein-they have trans gressed the letter or the spirit of the W man statute, tbey will of course . manifest due penitence. t A Frightful Hail Storm, at Clyde, Wayne Co.r-It occured on.
