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.
Mount Union, 8th mo. 1845.
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!
That word their ensign that the cause
"Which bids them hi- ret the social laws,
In wrath, in pain;
That the sole boon for lives of toil,
Demand they from their natural soil;
Oh, not in vain!
One single year and some who now
'Come forth, with oaths and haggard brow,
Read prayer and psalm,
In quiet homes; their sole desire,
Rude comforts near the cottage fire,
And Sabbath calm.
But hunger is an evil foe:
It striketh Truth and Virtue low,
And pride elate:
"Wild Hunger, stripped of hope and feat 1
It doth not weigh ; it will not hear ;
It cannot wait.
For mark, what come. To-night the poor
JM mad) will burst the rich uin' dour.
Jlnd wine will run
In floods, and rafters Mazing bright
Will paint tlic sky with crimson light.
Fierce as the tun !
And plate carved round with quaint device
And cups all sold will melt like ice
In Indian heat!
And queenly silks from foreign lands,
"Will bear the stnmp'of Moody hands,
And trampliog feet i
And Murder from his hideous 6Vn
Will come abroad and talk lo nioii
Till "creatures born
For good (whose hearts kind Pity nursed)
Will act the direst crimes they cursed,
But jester-morn.
So, wealth by want will he overthrown.
And Want be strong and guilty grown,
Swollen out by blood.
Sweet peace ! who sitt'st aloft, sedate,
Who bind'st the little to the great,
Canst Thmt not Charm the serpent Hato 1
And quell this feud?
Between the pomp of Crcr-sus-1 state,
And Irus, starved by sullen Fate
""Twecn 'thee' and 'me,'
'Tween deadly frost and scorching sun
The tlrirty tyrants and the one
Some space must be.
Must the world quail to absolute kings,
Or tyrant mobs, those meaner things,
All nursed in gore
Turk's bowstring Tarter's vile Ukase
Grim Marat's bloody band, who pace
From shoro to shoreJ
Oh, God! since our bad world began,
Thus hath it been from man to man
War to the knil'o !
For bread for gold for words for air!
Save us, O God! and bear my prayer1!
Save, save from shame from crime detpuir
Man's puny life!!

From the Liberty Advocate. 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
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.
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.
From Burrett's Christian Citizen.
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
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
Could the father who is swelling the huz

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

his bosom a spark of latent feeling, the huz
za would die on his lips.

'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.]
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
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
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."
