FOR THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE. LINES. To the memory of Jdux G. Williams, who diod in. Eastern Pennsylvania, about a year ago. Mourn, yo kind and friendly ones, Mourn in accents deep and grava, Not for freedom's gallant sons, But the poor down-trodden slave. Mourn yo long, and longer yet, While vou this great loss deplore Lo! a brilliant star has set, Jobs G. Williams is no more. Filled with nnti-slavory zeal, None more justly earned applause; With his shoulders to the wheel, Died he in the righteous cause. His philanthropy was strong, When it looked upon the oppress When ho could, he curbed the wrong, Warm benev'lence ruled his brcatrt. Yrt were not his aims confined To tho colored man alone; All tho round of humankind Stood as brcthcrn of his own. Peaceablo in all men's sight, Peace his study still he made, And since peace was his delight, Peace to his hxcstrious shape. MAHONING BARD. Mount Union, 8th mo. 1845. THE RISING. Hark to the sound! Without a trump, without a drum, The wild-eyod, hungry millions come, Along tho echoing ground. From cellar and cave, from streot.and lane, Each from his separate place of pain, In a blackening stream, Come sick, and lame, and old and poor, And all who can no more endure; Like a demon's dream! Starved children with their pauper sire, And laborers with their fronts of fire, In angry hum, And felons hunted to their den, And all who shame the name of men, By millions come. The good, the had come, hand in hand; Linked by that law which none withstand; And at their head, Flaps no proud banner, flaunting high, It lit a shout sent upwards to the sky, Of 'Bread! Dread!

A DREAM---A DREAM. I dreamed a dream; if I don't mistake 1 dreamed this dream when wide awake I tl reamed that 1 saw Dr. Ji'nkiv, on a Sabbath evening, sitting in his richly fur nished parlor, in r ree Pennsylvania, engag ed in deep thought, how best to promote the interest of the Old School Presbyterian Church, and to spread abroad the "Patriar chal" institutions of the South, so ns to cover trie norm witii its blessings; and in stantly I saw him spring to his feet, and clapping his hands on his forehead, I heard him utter in most reproachful terms the fol lowing soliloquy: "How vastly" short we Matter-day' Presby terians have come of living out the laws which Jehovah gave to the Jews. It was in his st.itute that tho brother should marry the wife ol a deceased brother: but now thev are shamefully neglected and, often suffered to die in widowhood, without being married by any one. If a man stole an ox, the law re quired that he should restore four oxen; but we senil the tluef to the Penitentiary, am: the rightful owner is often cheated out of the value of his animal. 1 he law of Moses permitted a man to have a dozen or more wives; lint Mere in tins infidel land, it 13 contrary to the municipal regulations of the Mate to have hut one , and she has to bo tak en 'better for worse,' but more frequently worse for better. It is different in the South, and more in accordance with the word of (rod. Solomon had three hundred w ives and seven hundred concubines. He was a man after God's own heart, and mine too. If lived in the South 1 might he a Solomm: if not in wisdom, in other respects. I could have as many concubines as he had, if I could raise money enough to buy them, or women enough to raise them from. It grieves mo that the 'peculiar institutions of mo south are not peculiar to Pennsylvania. If a disobedient son was found iruiltv of breaking the Sabbath ho was stoned to death; but who, in these degenerate times, ever saw his son or his neighbor's son nut to death in that way! The Quakers are, Sah-batli-breakers, and should all be stoned to death, old and young. We have, as Pres byterians, degenerated much, ever since the days of our Puritan fathers, who hung Qua hers, drowned wizards, and burnt witches. Would to God they bad hung nil the Qua kers, from old Win. Penn down to tho young est disciple, except the body member ami Proslavcry Hieksites! They give as much support to the cause of slavery as any other people in the world; but I fear. I awfully fear, they will yet desert us. The anti-shivery Quakers are, I believe, the prime mov ers of this abolition which so much disturbs the 'quiet of the Churches, and e'en my sleeping hours." (lie sees John passim' through the hall.) "Hallo, there, John!" John. Your humble servant, sir. Dr. I desire you should summon into my presence, instantcr, about three hundred and eighteen of the servants born in my house, and bought with my roonf y. 1 wish to nrm them, aud march a crusade against this fa natical band of Quakers, and other Aboli tionists, who have risen up in these, latter days, bidding defiance to God and his "pe culiar institutions." John. Why, father, you are beside your self! Vou have no servants! 1 think vou have mistaken yourself for Abraham! Or it may be, for Dr. Anderson, or Dr. Capers, or some other southern Patriarch! l)n. Pshaw! I have studied o murh on this Abolitionism, and the disobedience of our Church to the commandments of God, that my tevcrisli brain has, lor the time lost its equilibrium. John, bring me the Hihle. 1 want slaves, and I wish to procure them in God's own appointed way." John brings the Hihle. The Doctor turns to the twenty-fifth chapter of Leviticus, and reads the forty-fourth verse: "Holh thj bond men, and bond maids, which thou shall hare, shall be if the heathen tint arc round alioul you; of them shall ye buy bondmen ami bund maids." Acting in accordance with the authority found in Ihe above quoted text, the Doctor proceeds on board an American Slaver, and tails for the 'hcathpri round about' lo Afri ca, the slaughter-house of fallen Christiani ty. When bo reached the blood-stained shores of that ill-fated land, 1 dreamed that he met Itishop Socle and Alexander Camp hell, whose cogitations had led them to the same conclusion with himself. The Bishon busily engaged in driving a banrain with a heathen lor wo are commanded lo buy of the heathen for five hundred slaves. They were "prime," worthy women, and some of them pretty fair, Wing related to slavcbnJdiug missionaries who were sent to that country in the year The heathen aked the round sum of 100,00(1 fur the lot; but the Bishop declared he would give hut $90,000. Dr. Junkin, after surveying tho lot, counted down the prk-c, aud" the slaves were pronounced his. As a matter of course, the numerous "irer hiindcutl's." which had been voted to him as honorable testimonials of his adhesion to slavery, were placed upon their wrists, and they driven to the slave prisons for safe keeping. Bishop Soule made a purchase of two hundred and fifty, for which he paid $30,000, these two lots were tho only ones the heathen Kings were able to take in three or four successive wars, in which were slaughtered mar four .thousand men, women, and children. Alexander Campbell in the mean time, felt that his trip to Africa was about to prove a failure. Tho long-headed, head long Camel was suddenly relieved by the foTlowimr thought ".Vow if I can prove by the word of Uod, that the rich heathen ol whom Dr. Jun kin and Bishop Sonic niado their purchases have a right to sell thcin both, with all their eUects, 1 shall then own them and all their slaves." So Alcxandar very learnedly steps up to the heathen merchants aud tells them what is a fact, "that tho Jews gave tho name ot Gentiles to tho uneircumciscd persons: henco tho word, Cintie, Pagan, nnd heathen. 1 nee tynannmnus, and christians arc also term ed heathen by the Jews." Campbell proves lint the Jowish law under which they act authorizes tho heathen merchants of Guinea to sell tho heathen Junkins aud Houle so Campbell buys them of the heathen with all their effects, slaves nnd silver handcuffs. After this purchase he prevailed on a third heathen to sell him the two now rich heath en for a small sum. This done, Alexander becomes immensely wealthy, by obndionee to the word of Coil. He crowds bis ser vants of tiio "heathen round tibnul" in the middle passago of a South Carolina slaver, and in a few weeks he is gifely lauded at the mouth of the Bio del .Norte, in Texas, where he intends storking a large cotton farm. Alexander quotes: " 'Tis the Lord's doings and is marvelous in our eyes;" and, "Bless ed he the Lord, for I am rich." And I dreamed that Junkin and Soule, nOW rohhed nf llw.il- n-!rna t their children, reduced to tho condition of "chattels personal," having no home, no country, no friends, regret exceedingly tli.it God ever gave a law so destitute of "human ity us to authorize a slavery bound on tha soul for life, and that Jesus" nnd the Apos tle did not bear testimony against an oppres sion so grievous to he borne. H. From Burrett's Christian Citizen. A BEAUTY-GEM OF WAR. A writer, who was an eye-witness of the arrival of a remnant of Xapnloan's army at Dresden, relates the follow ing heart-rending anecdote: The regiment of body-guards that acquit ted itself so manfully sit M k, has, in returning to .Moscow", been altogether cut up mostly by the frost. Of the" whole regi ment, ouly about seventy remain. Single bodies arrive by degrees, but in the main in a most pitiable plight When they reach the. Saxon border, they are assisted by their compassionate countrymen, who enable Iheiii to niuke tho rust of the road in a car riage or wagon. On Sunday forenoon, I went to tho Lincn seen Dud, nnd found a crowd collected round a cart, in which some soldiers had relumed from Kussia. .o grenade of grape could have disfigured them as I beheld them, the victims of cold. One of them had lost the upper joints of his ten fingers and showed us mo niacis slumps. Another looked as it ue ii.id neon in mo bauds ol the Turks; for bo wanted both cars and nose. .Most horri ble was the look of a third; whose, rues were frozen. The eyelids hung down rottimr, and the globes of the eyes were burst and pro truded out of the sockets. It was awfully hideous, but a more hideous object was yet to present itself. Out of the straw in thn bottom of the cart, I now beheld a figure creep painfully, which one coul l scarcely be lieve to lie a .human being; so wild and dis torted were his features. The lips were rot t"d away, nnd teeth exposed. He milled the cloak away from before his mouth, and rrin- neil on us like a death's head. Then he hurst out into a wild laughter began to givo the command in broken French," in a voice nearer like the bark ol a dog, than anything human; and we saw that the poor wretch was mau iroin n frozen Oram. Ninldenly a cry was heard, 'Henry! my Henry!' and a young girl rushed up to the cart. "The pour luna" tic rubbed his brow, as if trying to recollect where he was he then strHched out his arms to the distracted girl, aud lifted himself up with his whole strength. A shuddering fever-lit came over him. He fi ll and lay breathless upon the straw. The girl was re moved forcibly from the corpse. It was her bridegroom!1 Could the father who is swelling the huz za for the warrior, hare witnessed that scene could he have seen tho dying maniac, tho lover and the loved, could he have seen the hot tears of the distracted girl felt the bit terness of her sou, methinks if there lay in his bosom a spark of latent feeling, the huz za would die on his lips. Mother! had that broken-hearted being first drawn its sustenance, from your breas"t had you first heard it lisp the name of mother1 had she been your idol ! ihe an gel of your dreams! the image of your imag inal:on, oh! had you seen her sky suddenfy darkened by horrible clouds had you listen ed to the snap of her heart-strings marked her desolate cyo and seen your dearest go down to a dark nnd hopeless grave and fid you know that all this woo nnd sorrow was necessary to the warrior's fame was neces sary to the victor Mothers! would you not teach your little ones to regard the warrior as nn enemy to humanity to God? Maiden ! you on whoso polixlipd fingers the laurel wreath is resting, awaiting the time when it shall deck the warrior's brow Mai den pause! Pause, and ask him! 'What is thy glory?' Is it in broken hearts in the wailings of damned spirits? Is it in the widow's tear? in her siglA in the soldier's dying moan Tell mo warrior, tell me, ere add to your fame or glory. D. W. B. Avon, Conn. June 4. 1845. A CHAPTER ON CITY LIFE. 'A Wounded spirit who can bear.' Some few years since, two interesting and accomplished young French ladies arrived in this country, one of them as governess in the family of an opulent merchant, returning from Paris. S10 remained with them a term of years and her sister was employed as a French teacher in atashionahlo Female Sem inary up town. Time passed and they reach ed mature life, and by change of position or loss of friends, they were compcllud to re sort to needle-work, having hired a couplo of rooms in a house beyond tho densely pop ulated portion of Sew York. They became very poor, hut w ith tho peculiar tactof French ladies, delicacy led them to conceal tho fact from friends, who would most cheerfully have rendered them any pecuniary aid. A lew days since, a gentleman received an u nonymous note, probably written by some one who siiBpected their painful situation, stating that these ladies were in a stato of xtremo destitution, and one of them was dead! Ho immediately went to the obscure home in the upper part of tho city, and the fearful truth 11 ished over his mind, that these refined, shrinkingly delicate wnmcii had suf fered from absolute want, without even nn intimation of it to the family who occupied the other portion of the bouse. The surviv ing one was in feeble be.:lth, very much ein neiat"d and heart-broken at the loss of her sistrr. I'very aid was rendered and attempts were made to soothe the bleeding wounds of the survivor. But she was almost inconso lable, and although herself much emaciated nnd very feeble, she refused to be comforted. Arrangement were at once made for the funeral, and on the afternoon of the succeed ing day, a number of families went nut in their own carriages, determined lo tike the surviving sistT to one of their sumptuous mansions. Their amazement may well be conceived, when upon arriving fit the now lonely home of those accomplished, and once beautiful girls to find tint the remaining sis tor tea also dead! Want had produced ex haustion, grief hail aided the work of death. nnd when one sister died, the full heart of tiie other was broken with anguish, and both were laid in tho same gj ive. This is nn fic tion. It is a solemn fact, and only another dark shade in the character of city life. 1'hiladclphiu Post. [From the N. Y. Tribune.] THE INDIANS IN PARIS. interesting particulars are given of the deatli of ()-ki-oui-mi, the wife of the Lit tle Wolf. "The death of a very young child, whom this poor woman lost in London, may he con sidered the determining cause of her malady. She bad already lost three children, and could no longer resist her grief. Iler husband, who showed her the utmost and most con stant tenderness, tried to rural her to life; but she replied, '.! my four children call me; I see them with the Great Spirit; they stretch out their arms, and are surprised th.it I have not already rejoined them.1 The last four days of her life, the Little Wolf did not appear in the, exhibition room of Mr. Catlin; he did not quit for an instant his wife, but watched her niirht and dav. serving her with all zeal and love, and rcl'ii sing to permit any person to aid him. He received the last wishes of his wife. She desired him to thank the physicians for their caro lor one so unhappy, and to say she was now anoiil to become a happy mother, since the Great Spirit would rc-uuite her with her four children. She gave orders in what dress to inter her body, and asked that they would leave upon her neck a medallion of the Vir gin, niollur if the. (ircnt Spirit if the Chris tians. The interpreter, hearing her say this, went for a priest, who, not arriving before her death, recited over the corpse the pray ers of the Catholic Church. The Litl'o Wolf then dressed her as she had desired, and painted her, according to the cusioin of Ihe tribe. The three Ioway women lamented over the body of her who had become endeared to them daring their companionship of travel, though a daughter of the Sac tribe, hostile to theirs, and not by birth and education a sister. When her child died nt London, the Kn glish showed both for her and her husband lively sympathy; they erected a tomb to the child, and the Quakers, to reassmc the fath er, who feared the tomb might be violated by surgeons, engaged to keep constant watch over it. The l lib June, at l J o'clock, the funeral left the house, Hue Si. Honore, where Mr. Melody lives wilh tho Indians. In one of the carriages was the Little Wolf, with the Doctor. The (j'eueral Commandant, M.Jef fery the interpreter, and the Abbe Alfred AS attermere, for whom the poor O-ki-oui-mi had conceived a great affection and from w hom she had received the first notions of Christianity. The bier was richly ornamented nnd fol lowed by several e images, the chief mourn ers being Messrs. Catlin, Melody, and Alex. Watlein ire, friend of tho two honorable A meiicans w ho accompanied these Indians to Kit rope. A crowd followed to the Magdalen Church. The Indians were introduced there nnd con ducted to the foremost row of reserved seats, beside the desk. They took their places, gravely, without saying a word. .The grief of Chone-t.i-gi-ga, Little Wolf, appeared profound; bis noble and good coun tenance was darkened with sadness, his eyes bloodshot; ten days had added ten years lo his age. The Doctor seenv d, also much af flicted, and showed it by a calm sternness wo should have thought impossible to this man, who, notwithstanding bis age, has the gaiety and liveliness of a young hoy. As to Oua-ta-oiii-hu-ka-na, that charming youth of the proud distinguished air, he looked as grave and sad as the others. They wer.; all very simply dressed, none painted except tho Doctor, who had upon his face a thin coat of yellow that gave it the look of a bronze mask. The Little Wolf had laid aside all his usual ornaments; onhis scalp he had neither Vermillion, hair or feath ers, a hand of stuff bordered wilh pearl beads around his bead was all its covering. The General had on an eagle's plume, tho Doc tor hair. Some of them worn bear-skius, but one a purple shirt. Kach had in his hand nn eagle's plume, which ho used as a fan. On their feet plain moccasins, with tho ex ception of tho General. Kmbroidered gar l"rs, bracelets, and wampum in the ears were the only ornamental parts of their attire," We arc very glad to see that such refined sympathy is shown for tho Bed Chiefs in Kuropo, and such intelligent respect for cus toms, every one of which is a pootioal record of their history, which must ever remain a dead letter to those who have no eye for such tokens. , THE MORAVIAN VICTORY. During the rebellion in Ireland, ill 1703, the rebels had long meditated an attack on the Moravian settlement nt (iraco Hill, Vex ford county. At length they put their threat into execution, and a large body of them marched to tho town. When they arrived there they saw no one in tho streets nor in their house. The brethren had long expect ed Ihis attack, but true to their C'hmtian pro- fission, they would not hav recourse to arm a for their defence, but assembled in their chapel, nnd in solemn prayer besought Him in whom they trusted to be their shield in the great hour of danger. The ruffain bnnd, hitherto breathing nothing but destruction am! slaughter were struck with astonishment1 at this novel sight: where they expected an ar med hand, they saw it clasped in prayer. Where they expected weapon to weapon, nnd the body armed for Hie fight, they saw the brn.led knee and bumbled bead iieforo the nit ir of the Prinreof Peace. They heard the prayer for protection they heard the in tended victims asking mercy for their mur derers they heard the song of praise, nnJ the hymn of confidence in the sum prnmisM of the Lord.' They beheld in silence thin liltlc band of Christians Ihey felt unable te raise their hands against them, and after lin gering in the streets, which they filled, fif a night nnd a day, with one consent they turn ed and marched away from the place without having injured an individual, or purloined n single loaf of bread. In consequence of tbi signal mark of protection Irom Heaven, tho inhabitants of the neighboring village brought their goods and asked f r shelter in the Grwa Hill, which thoy called the City of BefiKre." Good! Good!

Ax AnsTn.u'T Jksus. While listening a short time since to a sermon in which tho minister was portraying in an elegant man ner the situation of' Christ on the cross, and in the rich stylo of romance depicting the scene of Calvary, nnd then calling upon the sinner to look upon this Jesus as worthy of; bis highest affections, I thought at the mo ment how that same minister was acccustom cd to torn away from tho story of tho poor slave's wretchedness ami suffering and woe, and I remembered that Jesus taught, "Inas much ns ye have done it to the least of these, ye have done it unto me," and I thought within myself as I listened to the orator in that pulpit, I should like to tell him, Yours, is an abstract Jesus. As you bate slavery only in the abstract, so you love Jesus in tho abstract too. Hut would you teach the sin ner to love Jesus, tell him, Look nt that wounded Jew; go and bind up his wounds, and though thou art a Samaritan, thou wilt find thy heart in sympathy w ith the heart of - - Jesus. It is not by beautiful paintings only that Jesus becomes the object of man's" love.
