a few months past. There is at prcnent n
great increase of the Missionary spirit in a riou9 Theological Schools. Of those con nected with the Union Seminary at New York, twenty-nix have signified their willing ness to enter thu foreign ticld of ministerial l.ibor, on the completion of their preparatory studies." And to effect their purposes they present you witli such horrible details as the fol lowing : Human Sttcriftre.lpv. J. ('lark. Mis sionary in Africa, s.iys : " At Calabar, West ern Africa, there has been a fearful sacrifice of more than one hundred persons for a son of the IatH King. Tho poor creatine had teen dancing eglio all day, and drinking mimby, or palm wine, in large quantities, when he died tho same night. It is suppos ed he was poisoned. This may be the case or it may not, wo cannot tell. The aged mother cried out, in African frenzy, that she had lost her last child, and now had none to whom to leave her property ; Bnd, therefore, plenty of slaves must be sacrificed. Those Ht market, and all who heard in time, fled in to the bush ; and will remain concealed, or out of the way, until the sacrifices cease, which is sometimes more than a whole year." VVhich are less horrible than those they per petrate themselves. Read the following: Ghastly Fun. In Mexico, where our butch erly government is killing oil' the people of 'both nations by steel, lead, and fever, as if their lives were of the least possible conse quence, there bos also been established a little of the mora civilized sport of killing with hemp. The commanding General has established at Tampico a little of what is called " prulcclinn if human life," and ap pointed an amateur butcher, one of the edi tors of the New Orleans l'icayune, judge. Judge F. A. Lumsden, it must be confessed, goes through the role with becoming gravity and dignity. A poor Mexican is broughtbe fore him, who. taking paltrrn of a couple of Christian nations that shall be nameless, fought a little battle on his own book, in which his enemy's loss was " one killed." It was not thought best to shoot Irm, or make him sleep on the "ground, without a blanket and die of the fever, according to the general practice of the locality, but to finish liim, for the fun of the thing, judicially. So the ceremony of trial anil conviction was gone through with before an Ameiican jury. And the sentence of Judge Lumsden was so lemnly delivered, with the usual quotation if ikriplure mado in such cases. The Judge asserts that the Almighty alone has the right to lake life, an old judicial joke, which became very luminous in Tampico by tho military i light it reflected. Chronotype. TYRANNY IN THE ARMY. Since the order from the War Department restraining correspondence from the army, but ifew letters exposing the real condition of ithings are written, and fewer published. illut occasionally one finds its way into the ipress. We find in the Boston Chronotype a letter from a volunteer at Tampico. He is vouched for as a man whose statements may bo fully relied on. Ho sits upon the ground and writes upon his knapsack. " Our officers are despotic and dictatorial. 'The guard house is never free from priso ners. Men are sent there and punished for .tiu most trilling offences. I have seen a re vruit hacked, gagged, and compelled to car iry a long pole under a broiling sun, for not stepping properly in the ranks, and another lias been tied up by the thumbs for a like of feri'te. One of our Boston recruits was gag ged with a bayonet, his teeth broke and loosened, and his mouth cut severely. The best soldiers I have met with in the U. S. Army are deserters from the British. They nil damn this service, and would give a year's ray to be back again under the Union Jack, n the midst of all I am not in tho I st dis heartened. I have hitherto escaped the ac tual lash of military despotism, and will cer tainly try to keep it nt a distance. The management of the army, so far as I have experienced, is conducted in a spirit of despotism which would disgr.ico the most iinti-republican country on the face of the earth. A soldier cannot s ty bis soul is his own. His rational faculties are of little util ity except in acquiring tho routine of milita ry duty. He is a mere machine, without any jiover to guide or law to protect him, beyond the will of bis superior officer."' From the New York Tribune. THE FRUITS OF WAR. A friend who spent the last winter in trav eling through the South and South-west, in forms us that the detestation with which the present war on Mexico is regarded in that quarter, is by no means adequately expressed by the Whig journals of that region. The war is in truth nearly ns unpopular there, as in tho free States openly denounced by the mass of the Whigs, and covertly disliked and condemned by a great portion of the opposite party. lie 3ays that tho demoralizing influences of this war can never be adequately realized by those who have not personally observed (hem. He was nt different ports on the Mis sissippi when the troops despatched last Kail and Winter to the Rio Grande were muster ed into service. They were mostly young men, from 20 to 22 years of age, apparently (the rank and file) sons of the poorer fanners and mechanics of the interior. They were in the main a good-looking, well-behaved body when they arrived, but tho lessons of thb camp gave a rapid growth to vice, and the week after they received their bounty-money was too generally a week of drunkenness and dissipation. The sobriety of few was proof against the exposures and excitements of their novel mode of life. The mortality induced among them by cas ualizes and dissipation was frightful. Of a Mississippi company not full at first ten had been buried before they reached New Or leans. At that place, they were camped out in an exposed and swampy locality, through Jays and nights of incessant rain, which con verted the ground beneath them into a slough. Nome had their blankets washed away from the places where they attempted to sleep. Death of course was busy among them, and 'by the time they had reached the Rio Grande .one-third of the whole number had been swept away, without seeing the face of a Mex ican. On all the Western waters, but especially about New Orleans the number of discharged soldiers, disabled by wounds or diseases, was appalling. Their money had all gone to the 6utler and whisky-seller, but they had been provided with some Rort of a conveyanco as ts far home as New Orleans, whence They tho broken tools that tyrants cast away ' ' were begging their way onward ns they could, too happy if they should be enabled by any means to reach their several homes. Such is infernal war. No less cruel and infernal are the practices in holding human beings in slavery. They declare their determination to treat tho Abo litionist as they now are treating the Mexi cans, and in this great religious association they have been heard to justify the practice of lynching Abolitionists, though some of them at thu North are yielding somewhat to the pressure of an anti-slavery sentiment, yet they often commit themseltrs, and give am ple evidence of their insincerity. From the Ohio Observer. THE CHRISTIAN OBSERVER AND THE AKRON CONVENTION. 1 The Philadelphia Christian Observer of Man-h 12th contains a severe but courteous censure of the Convention held at Akron a few weeks since. We apprehend that perti nent as might be some of the remarks of the Kditor to certain other portions of the church, they are hardly relevant in this case to the churches represented in the convention; and fol the purpose of informing our brethren at the East more fully respecting our ecclesias tical condition, we avail ourselves of the oc casion offered by this censure to slate some facts not accurately understood, we believe, in some parts of the country. We merely premise in reference to the resolutions censur ed, that many in the Convention never intend ed to include in their condemnation of slave holders, nil, indincriminately, who stood in the legal relation of masters to slaves, and ir respectively of the intention if entering or ntslnining it. Thu remarks of the Observer to which we particularly refer, arc the following: "Should a minister from Tennessee be called to a church in Portage Presbytery, nnd present a duly authenticated certificate of dis mission to join that Presbytery, the Constitu tion requiri s "that Presbytery to proceed to inslul him in the congregation." The Pres bytery has no right to examine him nor to refuse to insta! him. if he had a hundred servants- A similar constitutional rule gives any member of the church in Mississippi or Kentucky, who may be a slaveholder, a right to membership in any Presbyterian Church in Ohio, on presenting bis credentials. And do Fresliylcrians conspire with men who are not members of our Church, to sub vert these con.ititittionat rights at a blow 1 Is it not preposterous for Presbyterians to meet with others in a convention, to establish a new basis of fellowship and order to en act a law which no Presbytery or Synod, or even the General Assembly can establish and which can only be enacted in the man ner prescribed in Chapter 12, see. 5 of the Form of Government 1 Is it not absurd, and worse than absurd, for Presbyterians to aban don their judicatories, and go into a conven tion to change the fundamental basis of com munion and order in the church 7 Havecon vcnliun any thing to do with the rules and discipline of our Church 1 Do our standards recognize the power of such meetings 1 The ecclesiastical nature of their act is still more iffensive than its immoral and disorder ly character. The Church is a divine insti tution. It is the kingdom of Christ; and IIo is the sole Law-giver in ibis kingdom. lie has prescribed terms of admission and exclusion, and revealed them in his word, and no men or angels, have tho right or pow er to change them. It were rash, if not im pious, presumption for the highest judicatory to prescribe terms of membership in thu Church which Me has not appointed ! But in this proceeding wo have a lew ministers and laymen, self appointed, responsible to nobody, discussing a subject of which they evidently know very littie, gravely promul gating, after a day thus spent in controversy, a new law or test of fellowship in the Church of Christ; a new rule of order, alike un known in llni Apostolic Church, and in the purest Churches of the present age. Such, reader, are their own confessions, and those at the North who elTect some op position to slavery, get up a false issue to screen themselves, as well as to cover up the dark and infernal deeds of their own South ern butchers. Evangelical JIHianee. The Brooklyn Star contains the plan of the American Delegates lor the formation of an American Alliance. It is signed by Rev. Dr. Do Witt as chair man, and Rev. Dr. Cox and Rev. Mr. Whee- lock, Secretaries. The following is their settlement of the Slavery question : "Inasmuch as the peculiar circumstances of this country seem to demand an expression of sentiment on the subject of slavery, this Alliance declares that a discrimination is to be made between those who hold slaves, not by their own fault, or for the sake of their own advantage, but from motivesenlirely be nevolent, and those who bold their fellow creatures in bondage for the sake of gain; and that the former are to be regarded as en titled to fellowship, while the latter cannot be received as members of this Alliance." Tribune. The Rev. Henry Cowles, editor of the Obcrlin Evangelist, says : "I would suggest, also, Ilia importance of mailing discriminations according to truth, between those slaveholders on the ono hand, who retain the merely legal relation through the constraints of law temporarily, and lor really benevolent ends that is, fur the pur pose of more sure or more facile emancipa tion i and those, on the other hand, whoyield their willing support to the system. In my view the cause of anti-slavery is strengthen ed by admitting such a discrimination." From the Pittsburgh Christian Advocate. LIMA CIRCUIT, P. C. Pro. Hunter There is no part of the Ad vocate to which I turn with more alacrity, and read with more delight, than the Revi val department, and I believe it is so with a majority of your readers. Reciprocity, there fore, requires that as I have 'freely received,' I should 'freely give.' Though I cannot re port as favorably as some of my brethren, I am thankful that notwithstanding our un wor thiness, and many embarrassments, "the Lord has not forgotten to be gracious," nor in anger shut up his tender mercies. Sixty- one have united with us on probation, since conference, and about that number luvo pro- fessed converting grace ; some of w bom have not yet given us their names, t our nave re moved without certificates, and seven with. Six have been dropped one has withdrawn, and two have died. Eighteen have been re ceived by certificate, so that our nett increase is fiftv-mne. We are putting new neat and ptilpits into several of our churches, malting preparations to repair and pntnt others, and our energetic little band in Hcnlon are talking of buying a parsonage. Mag it not end in talk. Our finances are low, but not dangerous. Our prospects concerning Sabbath school, Bible, Missionary and Fifth collections, are not bright; but this shall not hinder in ma king an earnest effort in their behalf. The Lord grant us success. There is no place in tho Pittsburgh Con ference, so f ir as I know, where Abby Kel lyism has done so much to injure the cause of God, ns in this circuit, lis influence is still fell, but the sun of their prosperity has passed his zenith tho days of their triumph arc "numbered and finished." "As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also tesist the truth : men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further ; for their folly shall be made manifest unto all men. as theirs also was." Their true character I have endeav ored to expose, and I believe it is now pretty well understood; and the prayer of every good citizen is, "O, my soul, come not thou into their secret, unto their assembly mine honor be not thou tinitr d." The Lord save us from their hypocri-y and infidelity. J. H. WHITE. Limaville, Sink Co., April 3. Reader, does such a religion bear any re semblance to the pure, merciful, just, and peaceable religion taught by the Savior of mankind 1 or, on the other band, is it not the religion of Devils, and is not that God whose cause is injured, ns is slated by J. II. While in his letter to the Pittsburgh Christian Ad vocate, by teaching men that "therefore all things whatsoever ye would have men do un to you, do you even so unto them ;" for this is the Abby Kcllyism of which he complains, and surely if a man is indeed a follower of Christ, ho would reprobate that "faith" which consigns men, women and children to slavery and to the Iword, and at the same time burning and destroying ihcirdwellings. s. Kidnapping. , ( The man-stcalors the vilest of all thieves, and most hateful of all robbers have been amongst us. A victim, in the person of a child, has been carried away from our very midst, to the dark prison-house of slavery ! On Saturday evening lust, a being having the sir)c of a man, went to tho house of a colored person residing about two miles from Ibis village, and, putting on the garb of kind ness, satisfied the family that he was their friend, and had been sent by a person resid ing in Jefferson county, to get a little girl the child above referred to to live in his family. The individual by whom he profess ed to have been sent and who he said de sired to have the child was known to the family; and the mother was pleased with the prospect of having her child placed under his care. Without hesitation, she consented to let her daughter go and live with her friend. The inhuman wretch spent the night with the family, and in the morning set off, carry ing the little girl behind him on his horse. No one acquainted with the circumstances suspected that any thing was wrong, until too late. The first intimation our citizens had of the probability that the child had been kidnapped, was given by a person who had come more than a hundred miles to prevent the catastrophe, but arrived a few hours too late. This individual, whose name we deem it best to suppress, (as we do the names of all the parties,) learned that a plan had been laid by the monster claiming to own this unhap py family, and a villain said to reside in our own county the ono above referred to for the recovery of his human prey. The hired minion of the tyrant had left in pursuit of his victims before the gentleman came to a know ledge of the plot; hence the latter was una ble to reach us soon enough to save the child. As soon as our citizens learned what had happened, a number of them set out in pur suit of tho kidnapper. They followed him to Wellsville, where they learned that ho had taken a boat with his victim, two hours be fore their arrival, and was beyond the reach of pursuit. Thus has another victim been dragged back into bondage! And it is in civilized, repub lican, Christian America it is on the "free soil of Ohio," that we arc doomed to witness scenes like this! Think of it, ye who boast of our light and knowledge look nt it, ye who exalt to tho skies our " freo institutions" consider it, ye who pretend to thank Hea ven that ours is a Christian land ! There is no power within your Government that can bring back to its mother's arms that ill-fated child. Your laws would have punished that unhappy mother, if she had committed even the small offence of secretly taking a loaf of bread to keep her'children from starving; but you have no laws to punish tho incarnate fiend who has torn her child from her embrace forever, and placed it in a condition worse than death. Citizens of Columbiana county, you aro compelled to have residing in your midst tho wretch who stole that child, while the laws of your country approve his act of unparalleled infamy, and hold up their shield between htm and harm ! Every sixth child in your country is, like that little girl, severed from its parents, or liable to be thus torn away at any moment, according to law; and Ihe people love to have it so ! Yos, the Xorlhcrn people, though they suffer pecuniarily, mor ally, every way by tho accursed ay stem of ! slavery, yet cling to it with a devotion which they have never shown fur anr thins psre or noi) ; ami insist upon eontinuing in league w iih the humors ami enslavers of men! The doctrine thai man is naturally and to tally depraved, baa always seemed a gloomy and repulsive one t hs but when look around us, the evidences are many and fear- tul mat it contains but too much truth. Still worse, the popular religion of our land that which mhv.-. i,. ..vu . Iheir depraved appetites and passions, seems only to kink its votaries deeper in degradation and infamy, and make them venerate, as it were, with religious zeal, tlw most fearful of all crimes. j. Decision of the Supreme Court. I This week we publish the report of the Su preme Court of the United States in the Van zandt ease. Tho Editor or the Era says that this decis ion and the one in the case of Priinr vs. Penn sylvania, " have done and is destined to do more in unsettling the popular reverence for law, and spreading the sentiment of Disun ion, than the actions of all other departments of the government." The editor adds, " In England, so far back as we can trace the re cord, the Judiciary has been the guardian of popular tights." That may be altogether true, but if the Era wants a Judiciary which will, in this country, prove itself to be the guardian of popular rights, it must have one that is not solemnly sworn to support the Constitution of the U. fi.; a Constitution which has est iblished that same court as its exponent, and in its decisions of what that Constitution is must unsettle in the minds of those who have any regard for right, for jus tice and for liberty, their reverence for the Constitution, and spread the sentiment of Disunion. Let but the people fully realize what that Constitution is, and if they are not totally depraved, they will reject it as the most dangerous foe to Liberty and the enemy of right and justice. Wo say down with that Union which is held together by such a Constitution. s. To Correspondents. R. II. His communication will appear next week. J. S.

Our sis ters of New Lisbon are going forward nobly in their labors for humanity. At a meeting of the New Lisbon Anti-Slavery Sewing Circle, held on the 21th of A pril, on motion of ono of the members they agreed to bear William L. Garrison's expen ses on a tour to Ohio the ensuing summer. JULIA A. MYERS, Sec. New Lisbon, April 24th, 1847. TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCH. By Atlantic and Ohio Magnetic Telegraph. From the Pittsburgh Gazette. Later from Vera Cruz and Mexico. Santa Anna Inaugurated President of the Mexican Hopublic Gomez Farias deposed. Mexican troops marching from Mexico to I 'era Cruz. Philadelphia, ) April 17, 11 A. M. By the Southern mail, arrived at Philadel phia this morning, wo have the following important news from the City of Mexico and Vera Cruz, with dates from the city of Mex ico to the 21th March and from the city of Vera Cruz to the 2d inst. Tho expedition against Alvarado and the National Bridge was not started until the Kith of March, one band of it under Gen Twiggs and one under Gen. Quitman. The number of Mexican women and chil dren wounded in the bombardment of the ci ty of Vera Cruz was seven hundred, and three hundred were killed. Santa Anna arrived at .Mexico on the 23d of March, Gomez Farias at once deposed resigned, and oanla Anna was Inaugurated President of Mexico. The President immediately sent n detach ment of troops lo aid the garrison at Vera Cruz, Santa Anna not having heard of the surrender of the castle and city. Santa Anna announces in a Proclamation to the l'eople that he has left 3000 cavalry behind him to hold Gen. Taylor in check, though according to Santa Anna, Gen. T. has been so cut up, that all American designs in that direction are completely frustrated. Santa Anna was at Cedral when he heard of the revolutionary attempt in the city of mexieo. no wrote inence on tlie 3d March, avowing ins opposition to tho attempt, and then pushed on to iWatchula. On the 6th ult., to the Secretary ol War. he announced that he would march on the capital with a large division of his force, and put down the revolution, another letter of the same date to Gomez Farias is full of kindness for him, and vengeance upon the traitors. One pas sago says: "With reason Taylor remarked at Saltillo three weeks since, 'I do not fear Santa Anna ; there will be a revolution in Mexico very soon, and he will be deposed.' We would like to five thebt letters, but they axe far too nitiueious. On the lh lit said in an ther despatch ,nal "ie lwo 'g' ol inlantry composed of 40(H) men, wrth their eorresnoqdine batte ries, were on their march to San Lois, and Ihey were to he followed by two others of all nrtns, to the aid of the supreme powers of the nation traitorously attacked.
