Furthermore, I will say (o as many as have 'subscribed. si oce the . volume began, and also to as many as choose to 'subscribe io future, they may rest assured of obtaining as many papers as they pay for, if my, life be spared.

' A correspondent of the Vermont Obsery; er affects at first to feel " mortified fofiod the Observer acting at corporal' fur the Rifle company It seems that a warning (tad appeared in the Observer "to this ef fect" The commissioned and non-commissioned, officers, musicians, and privates of the Rifle company are hereby warned to appear with arms and equipments at the Hotel in v' MiddleburyJ &c. Now why should not this religious, organ be atthe same time a military organ 1 v If the relig ious and the military systems ofthis country are not one thing they are inseparable. They are perfectly reciprocal and sympa thetic in what they are and in what they do. Io fact they are only two parts of one Vs tem. The army receives recruits from the churches, and the churches receive recruits from the army. The two help and build op each other, and go on together. They are alike destructive of peace and good will. They are both. devoted Xo fishling. ; , 1 This view, as'it pertains to "the' religion istfhas recently been most admirably il lustrated in a war between the Baptists and Methodists of Middlebury, in dividing be tween. (hem the spoils of a prodigious pros elyting conquest. It was the most fittiDg thing that could be, then, that a military warning should appear in a religious paper. .The correspondent of the Observer to whose communication I am now. alluding, I take to be " General" Rylaod Fletcher, judging from the initials. After saying what I have alluded to above, he happens to bethink hiraself-goes to work to frame an apology for the Observer, and finally the better to justify the Observer before its read ers he says "it also occurred that rebuke might come'with. rather an ill grace from one. who, had long been a feathered hero and "strutted his brief day" of bravery." It is a homely adage from some quarter, hat II there is many a true word spoken in jest." Those who are acquainted with this "Gent eral" will not doubt that he has spoken much truth of himself once. " " " He goes on to say-" I was ready "to be lieve that you would make such an applica tion of the gospel to this subject as Would retolutionize. the war-seotimenu of christ ians and fill them with abhorrence ofthis wicked custom." M The war-sentiments ot christians" is just as consistent a use "of language, as to talk ,of the rum sentiments of temperance men the tiiecingS senli ments of honest men ihe murdtring senti ments of humane men of ihe 'whorinsr sen ttmentt of pure men. The writer himself has, in tbe same sentence fixed his own condemnation on the practice of the church in this matter of military violence, by call ing jt a " wicked custom" proceeding from a "sentiment" to be " revolutionaedn by the application of the gospeL' Here is a .virtual concession to ihe truth ofeverything I have ever charged against the ehurch. ir this matter. I have pronounced its pro ceedings in these things to be anti-christian and inhuman. This has been the head and front of my offending. The strongest thing I 'have called for was revolution. And wbat less has- this writer now done ? He calls for a " revolutionizing of ihe war sentiments of christians," and the " abhor rence of this wicked custom." It is yet jo be seen whether this language thus used in this religious organ is to be taken ztntein trig anything or whether it is to pass for equal worth with the confessions of sin that are constantly made in conference meetings and church meetings by those who go out straightway under a'clokfr with which they have thus covered themselvW for the pur pose of more successfully committing dep redations on the rights of their neighbors. I close for the present with calling atten tion to tbe fact that the warning put. forth io this religiojs organ for the gathering of the church and-state host , to be drilled in the art, of man-killing, calls them together at a rum house !

The advocates for Miller's theory 6f the end jof the world, are holding a Con vention in our city, in the Chinese Muse um. Among the delegates, we are sorry to hear of several Baptist ministers who have heretonre enjoyed the confidence ot their brethren, who have been drluded Jby this false system of Theol6gT. ' The au ditory. i made op principally of skeptics; religious idleis, V Hching ears, lhose.whp are apt to be Carried about with diverse and strange doctrines," and by false teach ers; weak minded professors, errorists, &c.,' &c.

What is here, from this sectarian organ, but scandal heaped on a large and most de vout class of ihe party ? In connection with such railingj'lhese organs are contin ually exulting in revivals that are kindled up and carried on taore under the auspices of "the Miller movement, auhe present time, than in any other way. Why do the church es allow their' ranks to be filled up with what their organs set forth to be such rank heresy ? The truth is, it is seen that the time is at hand when it will be apparent that the Advent excitement is a desolating whirl wind from '.he mouth of the church. And the discerning and calculating 'ones are preparing as well as they can for the catastrophe. -But their hypocrisy is betray ed 'by opening their, arms, and. spreading their hands to gather to themselves prose lytes through tle use of what they them selves denounce as fiction. The Mille'rites in general are the most- honest and sincere part of the churches. v There is no ground for doubt onthis" point. They havev&eZier ed what has been professed by all the pro fessorsthat such an event as is looked for this year would come at some time. They have also believed what has been all along professed, for 1S0O years that" the time is at hand." And believing these, it is hot stra'nge that they should fix on the time, bv following indications that are consistent with those which have Jed them to embrace the other part of the theory. Millerism will yet make sad work for popular theolo gy. This is foreseen by the; wise and pru dent. It is a branch that receives- life and sustenance from the ap and -roots of the tree. " To cut it off if indeed rt could be done would make a most deadly wound. And to suffer it to grow leaves it waxing worse and worse. In such a predicament, it is nothing wonderful to-see th maoager.s of the craft, growing reckless. They who love truth and seek it have nothing to fear. For the Vermont Telegraph. ; Th Society of Friend. ; . . One of the greai evils of all religous and political parties is, that they always promise at. the i formation of their respect ive parlies or -sects much more than, they are ever willing to perform. This does not arise so much from intentional dis honesty, as from a desire to increase their numbers and appear ''respectabW" in the world. .And to accomplish this, instead of being open to conviction," they set bounds to their "seeking alter. truth," and say, nhus far shalt thou go, and here let the march of mind be stayed." In all re ligious sects, we have seen that, just in proportion as they" augmented their num bers, just in that proportion they conform ed to the requirments of public, opinion, or the legal enactments of the country in which- fhey happen to be placed.- Even those societies who profess to have no creeds to bind rheir members, und tolerate the largest liberty of concience, so- long as their members did not commit any act calculated to cast odium upon their sect by some crime for which the slate would arraign them before her tribunal say even these have had their tests of member- ship in some- farm, and their ordained priests who should have more favor than the "common people.' Take the society of Friends, for instance. They are'one of the no-creed sects, making these great pro fessiotis of equal right3 and equal liberty to all.

Indeed, i am not quite sure but. such a case did oace transpire within the limits of a monthly meeting in ' Western New York. The principles promulgated by early Friends were probably th e best and most rational of any adopted by any body of men. The society pretend o fol low that principle new, The great truths which George Fox promulgated were the same that had been uttered by the Youth o f Galilee befo re, and were h u nd reds of years in advance of his age, and ;tnev caused the minions of priest-craft to trem ble.

In the early period of the society, they nearly followed in the footsteps of George Fox : The great principle of kindness of the "universal brotherhood" of man of the "liberty of all to "minZ the light,11 and speak as the , spirit gave utterance, bears a strange contrast to the dragging out of a fellow manfor, speaking in one of their syriagogues. and- then bearing witness against nun in a court of law all of which we sue practiced by modern "Friends." ..Their ancient principle .of liberty to go into other congregations and speak, illy accords with their closing their house agiinst the pleaders for humanity, or gagging their own members from speak ing on the subjects, (as fir a3 possible,) of Slavery, Intemperance and War, in mod ern times. Their great leading principle formerly was, and pretensions now are Peace -Universal peace. They excom municate a man for standing in the ranks I on a training dav and holding a gun.

Even those who have not professedly embraced it, are beginning to show a reverence for bread and wine which cannot long be dis tinct from the idolatrous regard of the Romanist. The following from the Ban- . J . . . , tier cf the Cross will exemplify these views : Baptist Advocate. " I observe in the rubric,, concluding the " Order,, for the administration of the Lord's Supper," that'' if any of the con secrated bread and wine remain after Ihe communion,. it shalf not be carried out of the Church ; but the minister and other communicants snail, immediately alter tne blessing, reverently' eat and drink the same.". The object of this communica tion is to elicit-an , expression of 3our opinion upon a practice which has hereto fore fallen under my observation; but to which jmy atten t ion h a s been i m med i a tel y direcied.by a brother communicant. The practice to which 1 allude, is the seeming ly thoughtless acquiescence of the minis ter, in suffering, the " holy mysteries," which remain after all have communed, to be passed or handed from one commun icant to another, all standing in the aisles. and about to retire from the sanc tuary, and, under these ci rcumstan ces, consumed., I would respectfully ask' if mis is io revertntty eat. and drink the same ?" and whether, when- " any of the conseciated bread and wine remain ' after the communion," these " holy mysteries" ought not to be delivered, from the hands Ot ,he Minister of the Lord into tbe hands of each and every communicant thus re maining or present, "all devoutly kneel ing 2'V Your attention to this unauthor ized and irreverent practice, is, with def erence, requested by Liber Ritualls.". ; Monday in Easter week. 1 should like to- tee-the Editor of the Advocate, or any other stickler for the ordinances- of the church, undertake la shoy the difference between the " rever ence for bread and wine" a mong Episco palians, Puseyiles, or even Catholics, and the, " reverence for bread and wine" among those who call themselves by dif. fereni names, and yet adhere to the use of bread and wine, administered and receiv ed as a religious ceremony. The whole difference would be found to consist in a mere matter of idle words of empty sounds. Do not Baptists, Presbyterianf?, Methodists, and others, require tbe use of bread and- wine, under the pains and penalties of excommunication ? Do he v not anathematize as heretics and infidels as many as dare think -and say thev have no veneration for the use Which any of the churches make of bread and wine I And what do Episcopalians or Catholics do more 1 Let those who cry out, "more superstition," examine and see how muerh less superstition attaches to themselves in the same things. 4 The Pedobap'iits have always reviled the Baptists as being supers'.itiously at tached to immersion. But the former have shown themselves to have q-.ite as nj uc h veneration f jr the performance of the ceremony a3 the latter, by administer ing it to unconscious babes. Now I be lieve in often washing the body with pure water, and eating whole?ome bread as of ten end as much as is needed. But I choose not to pay a priest any more for making a mock performance in connection with either. As for wine, I believe it begets Just and genders depravity, and jnd should not be touched, tasted or hand led by those who Mould be regen e ra ted ai.d become pure and innocent.
