We must receive The charge, while trustfully believing That love, in his young life, will leave No greater cause lhau ours, for grieving. It must be so.

A sensible letter from Springfield to the New York Evan gelist givel a clear, ' practical view of northern opiuioo on John Brown aad kindred themes, and thug happily Mates our theory and practice as to free speech, so unlike that of the South as to be difficult of appreciation there, aud lead ing to misapprehension as to the common sen timents of the North : We bold lliRt the maintenance of truth demunds .freedom of speech, and we have fouud it afe to allow everj man to advo cate what sentiment be pleases Wo thus bear all sijes, and are instructed in tbe rea sons or our opinions. We find that public entimeut is not only kept intelligent and sound by this process, but it is kept cool and unexeitable. If Wendell Phillips will make 8 eloquent speech, be can get n aud.en.ej but ,,eo ln ; t0 u and come gw.y ,ilh tb 0pi i ,111., -dvocates of slavery and the slufebolder. tbe aame . li Wty, on5 hey have enjoyed it repeatedly.

Any fire-cater can get an audience. If be will announce that be in tends to incite the operatives to cut their employer's throats, be can get a hall and an audience who will listen to bim with the Utmost coolness, and tolerate bim in any thing that in not dull and stupid. We have nothing in our midst that we fenr to have diRcussed; and it is idle to talk of prohibit ing the discussion of t-lavery. If the con tinu ince of the Uuion depended on it, wo should still allow it to be discussed, though to fair-fifths of the people the discussion might be a bore. On the whole, I doubt whether there is any part of" the country where any subject creates less excitement among the great body of the pcoplo than here; and it is just because all men, includ ing fanatics and mad mon, enjoy free speech. IS'or do we believe that free speech would tend iu the least degree to excite insurrec tion a tbe South. Our belief is that free dom of opinion iu kept onder luwlchS re straint there for a different reason." Where all the Scandal Come3 From. There's the question. Every one must ac knowledge that there is an immense quan tity of the article in question already to bo met with iu the Rocial market, nnd that the demand for moro is steadily increasing ; but where it nil comes from, and from what port, and under what captain the new in voice is expected to Arrive, remains a mys tery. People, (is a general thing do ' not betray their own secrets. It is not likely that Mr. A. would inform his friends thnt his rent is still unpnid ; that Mr. B. would publish to the world the fact that, bo has taken an unfair odvantugo of Mr. Y. : that Mrs. G. would publicly notify her neigh bors that fhe has been flirting scaiidalously with Mr. P. ; and that Mr. O. has become second Othello in consequence. Yet the very things people would, if possible, con ceal, seem inevitably to lenk out, in the most mystcriom manner. And if, by chance, any individual has nothing which he would wish to hide, some story is forth with invented for his benefit, which, being cut out of whole cloth, is probntdy ten times more horrible than if it had been founded on fiict. But who circulates these reports, or who invented these stories, no one ever knows. Your neighbor, Mrs. Twiggs, who has the whole of that unpleasant story about Jenkins by heart, does not vouch for it on the evidence of her owu senses although she rehearses the "says he's" and "snys she's" with such exactitude sho hud it from Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith bad it from Mrs. Brown, oud Mrs. Brown bad it from Mrs. Soiueone-elsc ; but who absolutely benrd the words, or witnessed the actions, is impossible to discover. The old game "Hunt the Slipper," was nothing to the modem game of "Scandal." The holder the shoe might, by perseverance, be dis covered ; but the possessor of the little foundation of trnlh or fancy which hns been passed slily from bund to hund with such perseverance, is forever anonymous. It has been the custom, from time im memorial, to luy all the scandal on the shoulders of the softer sex. Womeu and slander, gossip and tea, peach preserves impeuclied ciinrticters, are words intimate ly associated with each other ; and the gonueinen, mess ineir innocent souls I are never suspected for a. moment. They stand aloof, witli complacent smiles, and insinu ate a depth of ignorance upon every scan delous tit-bit presented for the .general dis cussion, which is, to say the lenst suspici ous. I must confess, as a friend to the dif fusion of truth, that in those discoveries which ore made by Iistening-ut crevices iu the wall, peeping through key-holes, and hiding behind folding doors, women are by the most skillful. Likewise yon may assured that when it is known that Mr Skinflint is not a "good provider," that Mrs. Wiggins bus turned her old silk, and dyed her French merino, and that the par lor carpet of the Clumpinses came from auction, a woman has been foremost in making the important discovery, lint, dis cerning reader, when the topiu is of a gra ver nature when it dips into character, and violently assails reputation, depend up on it that a more vigorous hand is guiding the wires secretly ; that a mun is at the bottom of it. Pipkins, Podgers, and Prlngle belong to club. They aro sworn friends. The two who can retain a perpendicular position the longest, upon convivial club ni ghts unite in assisting the one who is overcome the strength of the crackers and lob ster salad to his domicile, and with frater uul kindness fit bis latch-key into the key hole, and bolster him up in the corner be tween the table and the bat-rack. It is Pringlu'8 turn to be thus attended one night. Pipkins and Podgers, both married men, assist their bachelor friend to his boarding house, see him put to bed, and part with very kuowing winks nnd glances, as they diverge into their respective streets. The next tiny, Mrs. Pipkins and Mrs. Podgers have discovered iu some tuystctioiis man ner that Mr. Pringle is possessed of the daguerreotype of Mrs. Phlyawuy, aiui weurs it iu the recesses of his vest pocket. The report spreads like wild-fire. It is em bellished, illustrated, and improved upon. Mr. Pblyaway becomes coguizant thereof, challenges Mr, Pringle to mortal combut. duel ensues, in which one of the gentle meu has four of his false teeth broken, and the other loses the best part of bis new wig. Applications for divorce and a law suit of great length wind up the whole af fair, and the papers of the day revel in a perfect chaos of disgusting particulars. Ars the female circulators of this scan dal to bo censured r Of course not. Be hind the scenes Mr. Pipkins and Mr. Pod gers lie concealed aud laugh. They have applied the match to the train, for they only conld have secu Mrs. Phlyawoy's niiu iature fall out of Mr. Pi ingle's pocket as they hoisted him up stairs. I'm not a strong-minded woman, bat I believe iu woman's rights, and I claim the benefit of our sex that all the scan dal be divided iuto three equal parts ; one third to be justly bestowed upon the ladies, tbe other two-thirds to be equitably surrendered to tbe gentlemen. ; ' i ; i ' -' i . ar Pigg. oo being qnestioued bj the court as to whether be bad ever been en gagad iu the hotel business, answered that rather thought he bad, at be once "board a frigate aud two sloops of war," A IT EXPERIKNCB OF A Coi I.TRyi)oOTOR. The poor doctor is called from tie bed on stormy night with the stirring summons- Doctor, want you to come right straight away off to Banks'. His child's dead.' 'Then why do yon wantme to come V 'He's poison ed. They gin bim laodnnum forpnregoriky.' 'How ranch have they given him V 'Do'no, a great deal. Think he won't get over it. The doctor pushes on through the storm meets with divers mishaps cn the way, and at length arrives at the bouse of the poi soned patient. He finds it all closed not a light to be seen. He knocks at the door but no answer. He knocks furiouslr. and at lust a night-cop appears at the chamber window, end a woman's foice squeaks out 'Who's there V The doctor, to be sure. You sent for him.' 'Oh, it's no mutter, doctor. Ephraira is better. We got a little skeered, kinder. Gin bim laud'uura, and he slept kinder sound, but he's waked up now.' 'How much laudanum did he swallow ?' 'Only two drops. Taint hnrt him -none Wonderful bad storm to night.' The doctor turns away, buttoning np bis overcoat under his throat, to seek his homo again, & tries to whistle awav mortification and anger, when the voice calls 'Doctor 1 Doctor !' 'What do vnu want V 'Vnii won t charge nothing for this visit, will ye V The Reasons for Irvinq's Celibacy. Instead of being a "defect," the celibacy of Irving was his crowu of glory. Those who have studied his writinzs must have beeu struck with the reraarkablo transition from humor to pathos, from the broadest fun to the most meditative sentiment, which occurs between the facetious History of New York and the Sketch Book. Many, perhaps, imagine that this is accounted for by his loss of fortune. But the feeling is too soulful! for such an interpretation. It had its origin in one of those disappoint ments of the heart which color all the sub sequent life of a true man. We trust thut now there is uo want of delicacy in allnd ing to the fact that the early object of Ir ving's love died during their betrothal. We have heard the last interview describ ed by u member of her family ; and to the sucred sorrow thus engendered is to be ascribed much that is touching and true in the sentiment of Irving's writings ; to this fenlty to this affection, in no smill degree, is owing tho continued sensibility which kept his sensibility which kept his heart fresh to the last ; and, above all, that re spect for tud syinpithy with the innate and holy .sentiments of humanity, which he; so uniformly cherished and manifested in let ters and in life. Nor is ; this ajl. , Time may have healed the wound and reconciled the bereft to unother relutNj 5 jjtut there intervened a period ofa-aiisastcf' which drove his eldest brother Ao bankruptcy ; for his sake and that of his of daugh ters, Washington Irving , continued single, took them nil home, and. became a father to the children. Beautiful was their mu tual devotion; happy their congenial house hold ; and Sunnyside is now bequeathed to them. No one familiar with Mr. Irving, associated the itiea of celibacy with him ; he was always in a domestic atmosphere ; his nieces were like daughters ; his fair neighbors his favorite companion"), children the delight of his heart. With such free and fond affections he could, under no cir cumstances, lend tho lifo of u single man, as the phrase is 'usually understood. He was domesticated in families abroad ; he was the endeared center of one nt home ; aud one of the most beautiful aspects tf bis life, as well as one of the most honor able, is that selected as exceptional, after the flippant habjt of those who ignorantly condemn what they have neither the jus tice to examine, nor the refinement of soul to conjecture may be an evidence of the highest love and tho most heroic self denial. Judicial Decision Against Crinoline. Ad English clergyman, Rev. Robert Ma guire, was recently brought before a Lon don magistrate on the grave charge of hav ing, while seated in a railroad car, run one of his legs too far under the folds of a la dy's crinoline. He was acquitted, and the magistrate, following the high examplo of the United States supreme court iu the Dred Scott case, proceeded to give his opinions on questions not directly involved in the case. He said : "I have often felt it my duty to express, in terms of the strongest disapproval; my opinion upon this fashion called crinoline 1 had entertained the hope that the many accidents which have arisen from its use, coupled with the ridicule which a witty member of the press has thrown upon it, would have led to its discontinuance by those who should set the example of a mod est and suitable attire. Far from this be ing the case, it appears daily to increase in absurdity, and I have come to the con clusion that, since accidents have failed to exert any influence", siuce moreover it would seem that ridicule but gains it votaries, from intellectual ladies to illiterate scullery maids, it is necessary to take some other means for its immediate suppression. It is to be tolerated no longer, that, through its vile and indecent agency, the characters of honest men are to be brought into ques tiou, and the name of woman to be held up to youth at the mindless follower of im modesty and shamelessuess.

Our beautiful Northampton with its iuir menuows and its noble stream is lovely enongn, out owes its surpassing attraction to those twin snmmits which" brood over it like living presences, looking down into its streets as if they were its tutelar? divini ties, dressing nnd nndresing their green shrines, robing themselves in jubilant sun shine or in sorrowing clouds, nnd doing penance in the snowy shroud of winter, as if they had living hearts under their rocky ribs and changed their mood like the child ren of the soil nt their feet, who grow up under their almost paternal smiles and frowns. Happy is the child whose first dreams of heaven are blended with the eve ning glories of Mount Holyoke, when the sun is firing its tree tops, and gilding ihe white walls that mark its one human dwell ing I If the other and the wilder of the twain hns a scowl of terror in its overhang ing orows, yet is it a pleasing rear to look upon its savage Rolitudes through the barr ed nursery-windows in the heart of the sweet, companionable village.

Connecticut to Virginia. A Mr. Chap line has gone from Connecticut to Rich mond, as he thinks, to represent the conser vative sentiments of the people of the land of steady habits. At the same time a com missioner is at Pvichmond from South Caro lina proposing a dissolution of the Union, if seme new guarantees cannot be bad for the security of slavery ; and a report has been made in the Virginia legislature pro posing a convention of the southern states at Atlanta, Ga. The Connecticut people are in this "puddle" because some of their peddlnrs cannot hove free trade Souh, in wooden clocks, nnd wooden nutmegs, and wooden gun-flints, with other such "Qxins." Poor souls ! they had a Roger Sherman once, of whom the country was proud; and there was a Tracy, too, who represented them iu Congress, in the days they raised mules for, the, southern markets, .who, when w..t. n I: .. . . , . , j. a North Caroliuiou pointed to' a drove of those animals and said sneeriugly said "Tracy, there goes some of your conslitii ents," who keenly retorted, . "yes I yes 1 they ore going down to North Carolina to teach schools." Now the conservatives neither honor Roger Sherman's love of lib erty nor Tracy's wit : to sell a dozen wood en clocks they send a delegate squirming aU the way to Richmond on his belly, as the devil went out of Eden, and backing iuto the Richmond State House, hugging and kissing a- uigger wench as - be goes, with the humility of a John Chinaman would enter the presence of the celestial emperor Pity, the poor devils had not been made to go on all fours to begin with. Newburyport Herald. Is it Right to Laugh? Once in a certain village, as I was talking to a number of children, they all laughed. I did not think it was wicked. I went on. They laughed agoin. And I have yet to learu that the religion of my blessed Savior forbids luugh- ing. lhat was my answer to a good old man who seemed to think it a terrible thing thnt I should have made those children laugh. Said this same person, in reply, "Yon can look through the Bible, and never find that tbe Savior laughed." ''Do yon suppose the Savior never laughed," said I. "I do." Now I hold, that bad you journeyed along tho highway where the Savior went, nud beheld the Savior observed something remarkably ludicrous, you would also have seen him laughing. I must tell you of a dear minis terial brother who would not lttngh because the Savtor did not laugh. He was ont milk ing a cow once, when his brother canio to him and said, "Don't milk that cow 1" Why ?" he inquired. "Because yon cannot find in the scripture anywhere, that the Savior milked a cow." That might have chased away from him some of his strange notions. But, ns I have said, I was preach ing to the children when seme laughed, and soiiio might have cried for aught I know. I concluded, when a mau came forward who looked as if he was a pall bearer at his own funeral. His face was drawn down, and I thought the man very singular looking. All he had to do wus to pronounce the benediction. But I tell you, lie made the most of it. He struck me in it, gave another poor fellow a hard blow, pounding us soundly with the blessing. At the close of the services, ho went to a ' brother, ond, said ho, "I am very much shocked at the levity of the Rev J. Hyatt Smith." I did not think I had been wicked. He was one of those ministers associated in your minds with tbe undertaker or the sheriff. When be entered the door of m house, the children would fly for safety. If that is the religion of Christ, I have not a particle of it The New York Churchman has discov ered that the election ofthe apostle Mat thiasto take the place of I J atlas was a wholly irregular and improper i proceeding, prompted by the Impetuosity of(1 Peter.

The following communication reached us too late for publication last week, when the subject of it woiil't have been more fresh and readable. We give it placa now, more from considerations of gallantry towards the fuirwriter, than from any apprehended good Ijkejy to result from its appearance, at thjs late hour.. Tbe effort, of which it ts a criticism, few uphold, or are satis fled with. Pro-slavery and auti-slavery hearers alike, look upon it as an unfortunate affair, and tho gentlemanly lecturer himself afforded ample evideuce, that his task was felt to be an up-hill and ungracious one. Whatever may hove been the object of thos Introducing this subject into the church, the result ought to be sufficient- ly satisfactory, we ininu. to every opponent or bouthcrn Aid bocieties. This view of the matter, led us to feel that we could weli af ford to let the whole 'thing tro by in silence. As,' however, she Jobfjs upon, it djfferently, our fears of dijcnssion tire not such as to induce us to deny her wish for the publication. Mr. Editor Dr. Baihd, in his very gen tlemanly way in ins lecture on Sunday eve ning last, solicited our aid to help Southern churches so as "to elevate both master and slave" as well 'us tho " free whites." . In judging from the past,' how can we expect any aid which we could give, could in any wise elevate the slave, or "do away slav ery," or open the eyes of the master to the enormity of tho sin or slavery ? for the South 1ms as much religion as we ourselves. Most of their states, counties, and towns, can boast of a goodly numtier of churches and clergymen, supported hv wealthy plant ers, and the unpaid toil of four millions of slaves. We build our churches and sup port our clergy "by the 6weot of our brow," and why should we give to the South, with her ample resources, onr aid in building up her Waste places 1 But there are other, and far more ve.ightier reasons than these. . In the Grst place, does the religion of the South mako the condiliou of the slave even moro comfortable, say nothing of ele vating him I I have seen and ' conversed with a large number of fugitive slaves from nearly every State in tho South, and their united testimony is that the? "are general ly worse treated in families professing Chris tianity, than in thoso who do not, and that these religious masters often prt faco their branding and whipping, &c, by telling them they are fulfilling their Christian duty. Nut long ago I had a letter written by a Methodist slaveholding' minister in Alaba ma, wherein he wrote that "he gave all his" slaves a good dressing down ouco in two months, whether they deservod it or not,.: as a dixcijiliu-e, and he believed it a good practice, os he got more work ont of them, and they were under better subjection, than" the slaves on the snrronnding plantations." never yet saw a slave (and I have seen1 very many) who evor had tho least confi dence in their muster's piety they , must appear to have, while with them but when fairly out of tho den of slavery, they ore free to confess that they do not believe 'the religion which is from God admits of rob bery, or bears whips and chains. Not ma ny mon i lis since I conversed with a man of ordinary ability, who for 25 years had j been "a chattel," some of Ihe"" time on a ' Presbyterian Deneou's plantation.-t'Ali." said be, "there is ".a great deal of religion down South, hut wghly little Christix-nity,"! tvny," conunuen no, - ci a mau gets caught stealing a pair 'of boots they'tuhl'sj nun rigtit out or (he ciiurcii, hut et lie steals roan, boots, and all, he's in good and reg'lar stauding." What a testimony t. Is this the religion we are solicited lo. aid! Dr. Baird says "he has traveled all over the South, and talked to both master and slave." How do-slaves tak te those who visit them ? . hut pO-ihle to find out their true feelings, in rebttion to their condition, or of their religious belief T I 'ell you nsy. They : dare' tiot" speak otherwise than to please tbe eor of their master. No minis ter from tbe North or. iu the South can, or dure preach tbe vhulc gospel to either mas ter or slave Why was the Rev. John G. Fee driven from Kentucky ?

Dr, Buird aaitj that "the tdaves who could not vend were instructed "orplly "out of the Bible." ' How are-lhey instructed? Where caa yon find a slave who cannot repeat that verso, .'.'Survaiits obey your master, Afl,'!-e-f Moreover, tbe horrors of hell, aud the ter- rible vengeance of the Almighty Is vividly portrayed before them ; it is a fact worthy of notice, that no Universalis! clergyman is allowed to preach iu tha South. I once conversed with a very aged negrtj, who bsd jilst escaped from the bondegs of a Presbyterian clergyman. I asked him If his master ever Instructed him ont of tha Bible ? bo replied "O yes, Missus; ears like I knbws a heap of scripture," ond com menced by repeating that verse, "Servants obey, Ac,,' accurately ; the next verso was nor qnite so accurate, he repeated it thns. "lor behold the day cometh that shall Lnni as an oven, and all the niggers, yea all snca nigger that do wickedly, shall be stubble5, and the day that cometh shall burn them np, saith the Lord or hosts, that it sliatt' leave them neither root nor branch," and many other similar verses he recited to me Dr. Baird also stated "that the ministers South did not believe in slavery, and many 6f l hem did not hold slaves, tho' some were obliged to, as they fell to them througk marriage or otherwise, and that they would let them go, if an' opportunity was afforded . them to do so, but If not, it wss nheir " christian duty to retain them." The Son) h ern religious newspapers and journals fur nish as with abundant proof that the sub jectof slavery is introduced into their Pres byteries, Conferences, Associations, , &c. ond openly defended by elerirvmeu of all denominations as. a divine institution." aud accordingly pass resolution in defcuce and nffoH of it.' ' The Rev. Dr. For, a Presbyterian ' mini ister from 'Mississippi, told his sister, Mrs? ttogers; iu Connecticut, in the summer of '52, that "he would as soon give up preach ing as give tip his gloves." ,-, ..--u Dr, Baird further stated that "weas 'a nation, had more religion, was more peace ful, had less arms and military parade, than any nation orconnlry he had' visited.'' He thonght this was owing to onf WitTe spread religion, and our knowledge of the Bible." I would like to ask this Refereud Dr. and distinguished traveler if he ever, in all Ais travels, found ministers and chnrch-merabers who kept blood hounds, and bowie knives, and branding irons, to bunt, catch, and, brand their own children and church-mem bers, who songht an "opportnuity" to es cape, and whose only crime is the color of their skin I ; - . . . s Lastly, Dr. Baird wished ! to be distinct ly understood "that ho was not an abolition, ist but an auti-slavery man. He was not pro. slavery, and we had no .right to .call him s-7, ,1 would like to have Dr., Baird ex- ejjiiin the difference between an auti-slavery man, and an abolitionist. . . Anti definition against, abolition, to abolish, to do away. Now then, this Rev.' Dr., in not wishing to abolish slavery; only to push against, mast mean to give 'it wider spread, and I do not know bow he could do it more effectually, or wexelther, than to contribute our aid, to support a religion which traffics in human flash, st religion which tends to rivet instead of loosening the chains of oppressed millions. We should remember well what one of this class hatb said "that there is a heaven wide difference between religion and Christianity.' The Little Dandelion. N. M. The closing thought we omit. Not because the subject of it is irrelevant, but because it is, calculated to irritate, and choke the way of ad vance. The point at which censure is aimed, was a concession, reluctant, and perhaps grudge ing, but, nevertheless, a concession, which we would recognize as such, for the eoconrogemeot, of other and more decisive steps. . , For the Telegraph. Mr. Editor: .'Tis' too much proved that with devotion's visage and pious action," we" do sugar o'er the, devil . himself. Our na ture is composed of two priucipal elements,, w hich ore opposites In character. One of, these elements is the embodiment of all the . good qualities of the heart,' and Is ever prompting us to good actions ; this isr rei cognized even by the Indian, who attributes everything of good to his "good (spirit."--Tho other element, or the Indian's "evil P'r it " qonstituios the evil part of the human. character, that which is the origin of all. pernicious actions and motives. It is geu-: erally a fact, that unless. vaja effort is made. to subdue it, the evil spirit is predominant. This truth has been demonstrated every' hour from tbe transgression of Adam and' Five to the present 'time. And It has been proved by ihdividnals of all classes and ages from the wealthy aristocrat to the paoper, from the gray-headed man of eighty, to tbe child of half a dozen summers. - It seems -to b'e a peculiar trait of this element of the ; character keep out of tight as much ss; possible.
