V E R MONT TEL EG RAP H. an and they bad killed only one, and all had bad a hand in the matter, the State of Pennsylvania would kill the whole of ihem of course. Their dividing the matter up between them would be no mitigating con sideration, in the eye of the community. They would all, to held accountable as murderers. And no one will pretend to say that any one of the twenty fire would bethe less a murderer tecauje he shot only one of the twenty fire bullets through the heart of the individual. How then, I beg to know, U the matter to be divided up in the community who kill the twenty-five? Alter the community of whites have kill id the twenty-five Indians fjr killing the five w biios, suppose the white community to bi killed in turn by five times their num ber of Indians. How would the matter then stand ? Will any one undertake to tell the relative numercial proportions be-' tween killers ana killed that will justify the former? Tho Indian in the case oc casioning. the3e remarks, it seem, was above lyiig. lie scorned the meanness of adding a falsehoodto cruelty. When asked for the reason for his awful act, he shrunk not, but boldly declared the shock ing truth to his enemies.. ' It was "revenge!, revenge!!" that had moved him. But ihey to whom he declared it will not have us much honesty when thi-y have killul i.i.n. When, tho jirof-ssing Christians have killed the savage,hvy will turn about nnd ad J n falsehood to their divd of man l.tV.inj. 'Ni-twi'ihs'.andingthe Indication is j,lain that those present were thirsting an 1 impatient for his b'ood, without tho mock formalities of the j iil, the court-room nnd ili? gibbet an 1 notwithstanding it will slip from n thousand , tongues that " hanging is too gooJ for hiiir" ill his killers will deny hailwring any revenge againn him. Arid this is not all or the worst of it. To cover up this fiul filsehood they yill add another and greater, involving hypocrisy Hack as hell, and declare they local him I Hip. my own mind was taking a mo rm nt uy view of the comparative infiucnew exjrted by such cases cf revenge ns that of the Indian now under consideration, nnd such cases as tho one alluded to iu the LVj'e. As I said before, everybody will be hoi rifled at the doings ol the Indian. L'ot the wholesale revenge and slaughter worded of th' I-raelitt-s among ih m- s.'lves, claims lo.bo the transection tf tho chosen people of Cod, and to have gone on ia tho most destructive part of the sliughter, under his direction. The vflTect c( this and like things has been to infuse iho same spirit into nearly all who takt the Bible os their guide. The revenge of this poor Indian, if it was not excited by p.rsolial or individual injury, was called f'-rth by the wrongs his race have sulT-red at the hands or B:b!o folio -.vers ; and their ilosceudants will now Tesori to that book- to justify, their killing him, just as their predecessors have ued it to justify them selves in their more wholesale slaughter of h:3 predecessors, and ai their cotempora ries now sustain themselves from it hi all ilu-ir violence to liberty and life, .which -1 w tfu-y profess at tho fame time to recogniz; us the inalienable rights of man. It should ait be' forgotten that the ajgreisioacom- menced on the part ofthe prof-s$ng Chris tians, t and' that they have always killed more of the savages, so .called, than the mages have of ihem.

When I arrived, I found quite a number gathered around therioor, trying to gain admittance into the Voce Feast a ceremony insthui ed by tbe church, I suppose, to show their great love for sinners. A priest stood at the door for the purpose of examining all those who wished to enter their sanctum, as to their belief, &c; & if they happened to agree with his views they Were permit ted to enter, but if not, they were compel led to s'and without1' and gnash their teeth in vain. They examined the appli cants in particular as to their lelirf, but none as to their practices, which if ihey had done, I am -afraid it would have thin ned their numbers considerably, as there set ms to be a wide difference at the present day, between profession, and practice. One young maa whosi locks looked as if they had not been recently shorn per haps he had no vow stepped up and asked for admission. After ihpy had ex amined him as to his belief in the Bible, &c, the priest remarked that lie did not have.much objection to him, exccpV that his- hair tvaWoo long-li looked rather suspiciovs. A geii'lemar. standing by in quired if the Discipline said any thino ubout the length of a man's hair. The priest after a n; or. em's thought concluded it di J not, and sa let him in. I once read of a noted robber who liv i'd in Greece, by the name f Procrustes lie used to meagre his captives by his bed, and ifjoo long, he cut them shorter; but if too ?hori, stretched them logger. Now a man's hair miy be loo short a3 well as loo longl and I would advise the church as soon as ii has osceitaiocd what is the right length, to gel two Procustean head blocks" made, oru; called the Short eaer, an i thtr other the Strt tihcr, so if a man capillary crop hippens to be too short J list pit hi;njn to the Stretcher and let him go through the elongating process, and vice versi.

Having understood that there was to be a sort of Viz Nic celebr.ion, on the "glo rious fourth in a little grove not far from our abode, my curiosity seemed to plead that it would be no harm to gratify it for once, particularly as 'the children from Es sex, who were interested i.1 .'Sabbath Schools, were to meet the children on this side the Lake, to whom .collectively an address wjs to be delivered I cannot help feeling an interest in the welfare cf "the rising generation ; and I was, therefore, " fonvewhat anxious to know at vvhat,"on s jch an occasion, they would Teach the young idea how to shoot." I had not been long on tho ground, before the firing of a Cannon directed my attention to the west, where there -was a band of musicians tt-pping to the sound oP the drum, fife and fidJle, followed by the teachers of religion and a siring of fe males dressed in wtite, with a wreath of cedar, or some evergreen, around their temp'es and bosom. Then came a mixed multitude carrying fltgs with vaiious mo'.tos. If their devices were calculated to impress the mind of the youth, it seems ta mo that impression tnuit bu false to ''viitue and truth, the guardians of youth." Take for instance "We foi:gui for life ;' Lit:le children love one. nnother Y'Duth is the limir to serve the" Lord;" and tell'me how fighti-Tg and loving man and serving God can be reconciled j but pethips they were only intended to reconcile- nhe young idea' to the common practice and proftssions of their guides and guardians.',1 . ' " Amid all this pageantry, my imagina tion waudered back to the ag?s past, in which the Heathen gratified themselves with' Olympic and Pythian games. In stead ofthe Priests of Jupiter and Apollo, here were the professed ministers of Je sus Christ, stepping to the soood of mar tial music, then mounting a stage exalted above all the rest, from whence they ic yoked the blessing of Heaven on "those who assist in these exercises,- and thank- ed God for this opportunity.? They had to read the "declaration of Independ ence, and harangue the multitude, and evidently acted as the presiding genii of the occasion. Instead of gymnastic and athletic exercises, &c, by which the Greek youth were trained to the mode ot war fare then existing, here were the boom ing cannon and the beating drum, dec, with various devices, to attach the memo ry, ifjaot the affections, to modern war fare between nations. Instead of virgins, dressed for the occasion, crowning the vic tors with olive, here was woman, decor ated with fascinating attire, giving sanc tion to the delusive charm by pouring forth the melody of syren song. Could old Herodotus have, been present to read or Tecite his history again, he might per haps have told us whether the difference indicate! progression or retrogression. Till some such authority appears, I must be allowed to think there is no essential difference, between the old Greek celebra tions and our national musters on the "glo rious fourih." ; '' O.her ceremonials duly performed, next comes ' an address to Parents and Sabbath Soliool Teachers," by Norris Diy. The speaker laid down, as usua!, sev eral Positions, but si mallu filled in sus. I ' . . . ' .. ' r laintnrr them Probably the people's at tention was too much attracted by his buf foonery to perceive if. I took some notfs on the spot, and shall'mark his own " lan guage in. quotations. ( He stated that 41 we are indebted to the Dible for every principle that is valuuble." Show him any thing that is good or use fj, and ho would take the principle on which it was fouaded, and Mrace it tijht back to the Llible." Tho hanging prin ciple, for instance, or the war principle, or the slavery principle. Such men always press the Bible into iheir service, because to them belongs the interpretation, and they are never at a loss to make it sub serve their interests. " We are indebted to it for tho knowledge of God." " No person can have a know!edg of him from any other source :J' .. .Men might '.- learn from the works of creation, but for a knowledge of G.id they are '.indebted to revelation, which means the Bible." Af ter miking awhile, he says, " I admit the tliathen l.vp eomu rcvtdiion th-y receive from G jJ directly" and it came " direct' ly to the Jews, through the Bible.'" Such a j irgon of ideas.hovvevcr they may sound when acted out, do not ed fy much -'when written out; and then he had some an ecdotes, which housed as i!lustration$,aud to these I felt no desire to dispute any claim he might have to their origicality. In his zeal he affirmed, " we are indebted to the Bible for tho knowledge of our ex istence.' ' This point he did not a I tempi, to illustrate, and, cs I 5avv no Bible there, 1 concluded he cou'd have 44 no knowl edge" of what he was either saying or meaning. He then made some very good observations about the necessity cf rii;h'. early impressions ; but carried the idea, that, in order to get these right impres sion?,'hey must attend 'iSabbith Schools :" that if they would ."' train up a thinking and intelligent generation, they must at tend Sabbath Schools ; that to them 44 we are indebted for reform that they Would " ripen the character of the risini enera tion that 14 they must not speak against Sibbath S;hools ' that they 44 must not be indifferent towards them ;" that it was 44 a mistake to believe they were inteuded only for children." 4 All community ought to be in Sabbath Schools" " See your children attend constantly ; irregu larity is bad in Sabbath Schools." " The key to an Epistle is in the 1st chapter, no guess work about it." 44 Every parent ought to be there himself, and see his children there, and seethal they get their lesson." 11 Attend in season and in time." The scriptures are 44 a dry study, because they do?? I understand "it." 44 Pray for Sabbath Schools." He asked, Is it true that'lhe iruths of the Bible, are intended for all ?" If the Bible is from Heaven, it. is important to be acquainted with iis contents." ""' .':.-.. What aJisplay of the spirit of Priest craft is here. It insinuates that the 44 Bi ble is from Heaven" ; thai we can have no knowledge of God without it; that 44 they do;'t understand it" j and boldly dictates in what way vv must become initnited iuH to its mysteries. Beware of this evil spir it the Priest will no more allow free dom of expression in the Salibath School than in the Meeting House. This spirit lusts for power and. honor, as much as in the days of Popedom - It is more dan gerous novy, because it has assumed the form of an angel of light and speaks smooth words. Right glad would it be to hare 4 all community" in Sabbath Schools"; but remember, " if any one lack wLxJom ask of God," not of the Priests. The time now is, when it is no longer ne cessary for one man to say to another, 44 Know .the Lord ;T for all may know him by consulting, in his own Breast, the witness God ba3 placed there, to testi fy when we do evil and when we do good, the asseverations of the Priesthood to the contrary notwithstanding. v If their minds are so darkened that they cannot discover it, they are to be pitied, because they abide 44 in the darkness and shadow of death."

Woodstock, July 24'h, 1843. Brother Murray .- Your favorable no tice of the lame production (f my pen, has emboldened me to try aga:n. The cffjrt may be unsuccessful ; but duty calls, and must be obeyed. Tne thought h3s ofu-n occurred to mo fof late, tlut one of the great errors of the religious world one which causes, perhaps, more superstition,'' and 'misery, than any other is, the mysticism which is constant ly thrown around the idea of a Gjd. What is God ? is the natural inq-iiry of of evt ry human mind. Lst a young lov er of truth ask this question of one v; ho is called a good, pious, exemplary christian, one who would on no consideration be guilty cf practicing any manner of decep tion, in the popularccepta Jon ofthe word, and what will be his answer? Firs', he will say, "God is a spirit, everywhere present.". An j the very next moment, in speakinfj: of his greatness, ffoodness. and power, he will point to a high throne, on which he sits, with a crown of pure gold upon his head, nl surrounded by angels, who are constantly chanting bis praises, from ir-Urumen's of fine gold. Thus likening an oninipi tent spirit to a tempor al king, surrounded by slaves, and adorn ed with fi'ihy lucre mammon. Djcs not the young mind immediately see that it is an absurdity to speak of a spirit as seated in form, in a place, and su rrounded by other forms ? Most assuredly, the in consistency will be perceived, and express ed too. And what are the replies, which are daily made to such artless express ions? Are they" not, in substance, like the following ? 44 These are mysteries which m ut-l not bj examined. Finite creatures cannot understand the mysteries of iufijiity. We must not reason on these things, but build our hopes on fiith, trust ing all shall be revealed in due tiir.e" Or something equally indefinite, '.and. un sa'ijfictory 1 Then we are exhorted to V Worship God, viih ail our rnight.niind, and slren-rth." And what, in the naine of sense, can be found in all this jargon, to wo rship ? Ca a t he i ca mortal m iud of mm reverence a thing sa utterly void of all true tela: ions within itself? It is ab solutely impossible. It is a bases libel on human nature to suppose any sach thing. Why not say that GjJ is Truth, or .Mind, or something of which it is possible to form so;r;e conception ? For myself, I would uot )!;ject to calling the universe of mind, God. But no, this will not do. : I Everybody can understand something of mi ml. Til ere is not. enough of mystery about it, to keep the pecplv in solemn, ig norant awe. By the help of a bug-bear God; anl a hum-bug Doviltbe learned, anfal few are enabled to ride, rough shod, over the nccLs of the ignor;ui anle5S,and coaiparatively innocent many. Ca'n those who setf these enormities by the light of universal truth, be silent aad yet sin not ? Is'' not silent acquiescence, in tbiscase, quite as much a wrong cs clamorous par ticipation 1 Shall the stronger .members of our great family, thus destroy the man hood of the weaker? God forbid. It is lime fjr those whd dojslready see, to strip the thick scales frona the eyes of their brethren, that seeing, all to iy rejoice iu the truth, which maketh frro unto salva- j lion from present damuation", We have all been groping in thu thicji darkness of error, for something' in the future, long enough. Let us now come into the light, throw down the false partition?, which op pose A barrier to all the warm, kindly emulous oune neart, emorace each ojh- er a? equal brethren, seek for truth, which shall unite us as 44 a band of brothers;" and I am felly confident there will be no mystery in the perfect happiness or heaven which will be the result. I may be denounced, as a blind, deluded fanatic. It may be sW but if this be delusion, then is heaven a delusion. I shall bo accused of wishing to revile every thing, which has been christened good, or holy. For this L care little. It is. for my own con science to deride on the motive from which I writejhese things ; and if thiscommuii- ication shall be instrumental in undeceiv ing one blind, unhappy brother or sister, 1 shall be amply rewarded fjr all the de nunciations and revilings, which can be heaped upon me, by the rest of the great family of man. I have enlisted under the banner of truth, for the cause of human emancipation. Although 1 may posse?s but 44 one talent," and am one of the sex which our divines tell us should be silent, still the truth hath made me free, and i must speak out my own mind, in my own way. I acknowledge that as a sex we are v?ak. But when and how can we be stronger? Never, unless we know and use what little power we have left us, after years of mental inactivity and slave ry. The slaves of the South areweak, b it it is only the weakness of ignorance ; and it is so with w omen. If they knew their strength,' they would arise in their might, and take their true stand in the in tellectual world, from which they have lon-r been kept by the popula r error, that physical . " might 3 right' Cut enough of this. I would not denounce a livinsrj creature. 1 war with error only, as I find it opposed to the happiness of the great bro.herhood of man. I apprehend thai sa far as man tniit.t iins his true relations with truth, or God, so br he will be hap py, and no farther. Ma rend a 13. Randall. GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. To ARRKST BlEEDIXO AT THE NoSE. Close with the opposite hai:d the nostril riom which the blood flaws, while the arm of the same side is raised perpendicularly fibove the .-.head; In every instanca in which he has had recourse to this means during the past three years, M. Negrier ha al .viy found ihiit it suspended b 0211 orrhage a fact thus explained by him: When a p rson stands 111 the ordinary postn re, with lis arms hanging down, the bice nved ed to ptopel the blood through his upper extremities, is about one half that which would be required if his arms were raised perpendicularly above his head. But &ince the force which sends the blood through the car otid arteries, is the same as that which causvs it to circulate through the branchial arteries, nnd there is nothing in the mere position of the urrns above the head to stimulate the heart to increased action, it is evident that a less vigorous circu lation through the carotids, must result from the increased force required to car ry on the circulation through the upoer extremities.
