to them 1 Remember that God requires this of you, and if you are not afraid of suffering for it hero, you cnnnot escape the vengeance of Almighty God, who will judge between you nd your masters, and make you pay se verely in the next world, for all the injustice you do them here. And though you could manage so cunningly as to escape tho eyes and hands of man, yet think what a dreadful thing it is to full into the hands of the living (foil, who is able to cast bolh soul and body into hell 1 4. You are to serve your masters with cheerfulness, reverence, and humility. You are to do your masters' service with good will, doing it as the will of God from the heart, without any sauciness or answering again. How many of you do things quite otherwise, and instead of going about your work with a good will and a good heart, dispute and grum ble, give saucy answers, and behave in a sur ly manner ! There is something so becoming and engaging in a modest, cheerful, good-natured behavior, that a little work done in that manner seems better done and gives far more satisfaction than a great deal more that must be done with fretting, vexation, and the lash always held over you. It also gains the good will and love of those you belong to, and makes your own life pass with more ease and pleasure. Besides, you are to consider that this grumbling and ill will does not affect your masters and mistresses only. They have ways and moans in their hands of for cing you to do your work, whether you are willing or not. Hut your murmuring and grumbling is against God, who hath placed you in that service, who will punish yon se verely in the next world fur despising his commands." A Word of Encouragement. Wo have recently received kind and en couraging tellers from our friends Ruth and Joseph Dugdale. W"e thank them for these tokens of their sympathy, and although as signed only for ourselves, yet we think there are some portions of them that our readers will be interested to see, and which we hope the writers will excuse us for publishing. The following extract is from the letter from Ruth: " So strong are the moral affinities of those who labor on behalf of the oppressed, scarce any other introduction is requisite than the Knowledge of their mutual interest in one common cause dear to their best feelings. Thy name and labors for humanity are so fa miliar from frequent mention among our mu tual friends in Eastern Pennsylvania (during onr recent visit there) that although w e have never mingled in person, I feel much more like addressing a sister than a stranger. "I have sometimes thought if no other good should result from the promulgation of abolition principles than their tendency to de stroy sectarian exclusiveness, remove sec tional prejudices, overcome the spirit of caste, fusing as it were into one the souls of those who seek the promotion of peace on earth and good will to man ; if no other object be achieved, the labor of reformers will not have been in vain. Indeed, out of this have grown other reforms promotive of human progress, and highly cheering to the heart of the phi lanthropist, no matter in what country or clime originated ; such the community of feel ing so beautifully described by the true-soul-ed and gifted Lowell. "When a deed is done for Freedom, thro' the broad earth's aching breast, Burns a thrill of joy prophetic trembling on fioni cast to west." And again he adds : " For mankind is one in spirit, and an instinct bears along, Hound the earth's electric circle, the swift flash of right or wrong, Whether conscious or unconscious, yet hu manity's vast frame, Thru' its ocean sundered fibres feels tho gush of joy or shame ; In the gain or loss of one race, all tho rest have equal claim." "Though we may oft toil wearily, because we see not fruits commensurate with our wishes, still is there not much to stimulate us to continued effort in the high privilege of companionship with the trno-hearted of the i.j : i .i. . i..in wunu l suvwuy buitu nidi nni euunci ui win . . .. , , r ., iwneiner we uenoiu n or noi; nnng lorui abundantly 1 This blessed promise should cheer the desponding mind.

Chicago Convention. in tabilitv. a of III in we to re of pen. as The subjoined resolutions were adopted by the Chicago Harbor and River Convention, with great unanimity. 7Vr.i, That the Constitution of the United Slates was framed by practical men, lor prac tical purposes, declared in its preamble. "To provide for the common defence, to pro mote the general welfare, and to secure the blessings of liberty;" and was mainly de signed to create a government whose func tions should be adequate to the protection of the common interests of all the Slates, or of two or moro of them, which could not bo maintained by the action of tho sep arated States. That in strict accordance wilh Ibis object, the revenues derived from commerce w ere surrendered to the general government, w ith the express understanding that they should bo applied to the promotion of those common interests. 2. That among these common interests and objects were 1st. Foreign Commerce, to tho regulation of which, the powers of the Stales severally were confessedly inadequate, and 'id, internal trade and navigation, wher ever the concurrence of tw o or more States was necessary lo its preservation, or where the expense of its maintenance should bo equitably borne by two or more States, and where, of course, those States must necesst rily have a voice in its regulation ; and hence resulted the Constitutional grant of power lo Consrress, "to resrulato commerce with for eign nations and among the States." 3. That being thus possessed bolh of the means and of Ihe power which were denied to the States respectively, Congress became obligated by every consideraiion of good faith and common justice to cherish and in crease both the kinds of commerce thus com mitted to its care, by expanding and extend ing the means of conducting ihem.and of af fording lliein all those facililies and all that protection which tho States individually would have afforded, had the revenue and the authority been left to them. 1. That this obligation lias ever been re cognized from the foundation of the govern ment, nnd has been fulfilled partially, by erecting liglil-liouses, building piers lor har bors, breakwaters and sea-walls, removing obstructions in rivers and providing other fa cililies for ihe commerce carried on from the ports on the Atlantic coast ; and the same ob ligations have been fulfilled to a much less extent in providing similar facilities for Voinmerce among the Stales;' and that ihe principle Ins been most emphatically acknowledged to embrace the western lakes and rivers, by appropriations for numerous light houses upon Ihem, which appropriations have never been questioned in Congress as want ing constitutional authority. 5. That thus by a series of acts which have received the sanction of the people of the united Males and ol every department ol the Federal Government, under all Adminis trations, the common understanding of the intent and objects of the fr.imera of the Con stitution in granting to Congress the power lo regulate commerce has been manifested and has been confirmed by the People, nnd ibis understanding has become as much part of ihat instrument as any one of its most explicit provisions. 6. That ihe power "to regulate commerce with Foreign Nations and among the Suites and wilh the Indian tribes," is on ils face so palpably applicable in its whole extent each of Ihe subjects enumerated equally and in the same manner, as to render any attempts to make it more explicit, idle and futile, and that those who admit the rightful application of the power lo Foreign Commerce, by facil itating and protecting ils operations by im proving Harbors and clearing out navigable riverB, cannot consistently deny that it equal ly authorizes similar facilities to "Commerce among tho Slates." 7. Thai "Foreign Commerce" is depend ent upon internal trade for the distribution its freights, and for the means ol paying them, so that whatever improves the one, ad vances the other ; and Ihey are so insepara ble that ihey should he regarded as one. That an export from the American shore to British port in Canada is as much foreign commerce as if it had been carried directly to Liverpool, and that an exportation lo Liv erpool neither gains nor loses any of the char acteristics of foreign rpmmet'-r, by the rectne3s or circuity of the route, v. hethcr it passrs through a ciitom-honse on the Hriiish sidff of the St. Lawrence, or descends thro' that river and its connecting canals, to the ocean, cr whether it passes along the artifi cial communications nnd natural streams of any or the States to the Atlantic. 8. That the general government by extend ing its jurisdiction over Lakes ami naviga hie rivers, subjecting them to the samo laws which prevail on the ocean, and on its bays and ports, not only for purposes of revenue, 1,1,1 'o give security to lilu and property, "V the regulation of Steam Boats, has precluded itself from denying thai jurisdiction for any ' legitimate re ulalion or Commerce. If it has power to control and restrain, il must i have (lie same power to protect, assist facilitate, and if it denies tlm inrisiliciii and .i. ' . . . . J . . Inn in ui- one niocie ot action, it should renounce it in the other. 9. That in consequence of the prruli.ir dan gers of the navigation of the Lakes, arising from the want of llarb irs for shelter nnd of the Western Rivers from snags and other oh slruciions, there tiro no parts of tho I'nited Stairs more emphatically demanding the prompt and continued care of the Govern ment to diminish those d ingers nnd to pro tect the property and life exposed to Ihem ; and that any one who can regard provi-iotis for those purposes as sectional, local and not national, must bo wauling in information of the extent of the commerce carried on upon those lakes and rivers, and of the amount of teeming population occupied or interested in that navigation. 10. That having regard to relative popula lioii or to the extent of commerce, the appro priations heretofore made for the interior liv ers and lakes and the streams connecting them with tl,B Ocean, have not been in a iust and fair proportion to those made for the ben- etn ot the Atlantic coast; and that the limo has arrived when this injustice should be corrected in the only mode In which it can be done by the united, determined nnd perse- vering efforts of those whose rights have been II. 1 hat independent of this ricrht to pro- lection of "Commerce among Ihe Slates," the right of " common defence " guaranteed 1 by iho Constitution, entitles those citizens : inhabiting the country bordering upon the in- ' lerior lakes and rivers, lo such safe nnd con- I venienl harbors as may afford shelter to a Na- whenever it shall be rendered necessary hostilities wilh our neighbors ; and that the construction of such harbors cannot sale- ly be delayed to the time which will demand their immediate use. 12. 'Flint Ihe argument most commonly urged against appropriations to protect "com merce among the States," and lo defend the inhabitants of the frontiers, that Ihey invito sectional combinations, to insure success to many unworthy objects, is founded on a prac tical distrust of the Republican principles of i ur Government, and of the capacity of ihe people to select competent and iionest repre sentatives. That it may be urged wilh equal force against legislation upon any other sub ject, involving various and extensive interests. 1 hat a just appreciation ol the rights and in torp&ts nt il 1 1 mil- tulliiL- mlifu.io in ovurir quarter of the Fnion, disclaiming selfish and local purposes, will lead intelligent represen latives to such a distribution of the means in the Treasury, upon a system of moderation and ultimate equality, as will in lime meet the most urgent wants of all, and prevent ihos jealousies and suspicions which threa ten the most serious danger to our confedera cy. 13.

From the Liberia Advocate. Reasoning of a Louisiana Planter. ADAMS co., Miss., Feb. 17, 1847. to of for a di- I'tlitor if Liberia JlJvnentc . Dear Sir: Not veiy long ago, I had the pleasure of meeting with a wealthy and intelligent planter in Louisiana, who gave his views concerning the religious instruction of slaves. Ho is nol a member of any church, and not only so, but he is frequently skepti cal on the subject of religion. This is one of the circumstances that made his reasoning, in reference to his slaves, peculiarly interesting to me perhaps the samo may prove some what interesting to you and to some of the readers of your valuable paper. Of course, no names will be expected in a communica tion of this kind. Suffice itto say, as regards the planter himself, he is a gentleman of ed ucation and wealth, of good and temperate habits, noble, generous, and honorable in all his dealings with his fellow-ineii ; in a word, he is what the world would call a lirsl-rale Lnuisianian. In the course of the conversation, aflcr lis tening to the difficulties of his own mind on ihe subject of religion, I asked him how he fell in reference to his servants. His reply shall be given as nearly as possible in his ow n words. Said he, " I have reasoned with myself this manner it is true there are doubis in my own mind as regards the Bible, as to lis be ing the true word of God, nnd as to ils tell ing what is to be thn true slate of man in world to coine. But notwithstanding doubts, it is the part of wisdom for me choose (he safe side, at least, the safest side possible. "Suppose, then, that the Bible should last be found to be true ; what will be my sit uation! I shall have more to answer lor my self than 1 can do w ithout having l" answer f ir my r-ervanlr.. They are in rnv hand and runnel have tbr ;"tpl uultf-- I jnc i ""nlurtahle house, expressly for religious wor other This is called the Mteting-houxe. II ia ,r,1R ' livp within u short distance ol sickness. Said 1 lo them, you seo you have precisely the same services as your master's family. We all atiend herewith you. Now overlooked. after providing these privileges for yon, it is 'end on them, and I shall require it of you, jllst as I lo of my children. The services cannot iyjure you, and they mny do you g nor, It is my fixed purpose therefore, to see that 'ou always attend and in good season. And I deal w ilh you in reference to this mal vy ter, just as I do w ith my children. Some hy times they would rather slay al home and 1 ! them. So that if there be any truth in reli- 1 have to answer lor them, their gion, ijrnorance, and its consequent evils, "And not only so, I know from my own observation, that even if there lie no truth in religion, still it has a tendency to make ser vants belter than they otherw ise would be, more honest and faithful, so that in this re spect 1 would bo no wit but a gainer by giv ing them the gospel. So that at any rate be the lliblo true or false, my safest and best plan, is to give (hem the gospel; and 1 have done accordingly. My first step was to put up a plain nnd of two or three chun-he, bill knowing thai my s rvjnts would lie exposed lo many tempta tions on ihe way, in attending these church es, I determined lo have one al home. ' The nexl step was to engage the services of a minister of the Gospel, w ithout so much regard lo his ilcnniiiiniilin.i, as lo his piety and aecrptabili'y. (The expense of this was from six to eight hundred dollars a year, but preach ing will soon pay lor llsell on a plantation.) 1 " When Ihe minister first cuine, 1 took my family and went Willi him to the meeting house, where Iho servants hail already been collected. 1 then spoke to my servants to this effect : Yon see what I have done for you 1 have built this house I have obtain ed a preacher 1 knew if there be any truth in religion, 1 would be responsible if you did not have the Gospel. Bui now ym will have lo answer for yourselves if you do not obey what the preacher tells you to do. 1 havu now done my duty lo you, so that 1 will sim ply have lo answ er for myself. "The minister then commenced and went through the religious exercises. But fearing lest some had been attracted to Ihe moetinu merely by its novelty, I remarked al the close ot lh meeting, that 1 expected all In be pres int nn future occasions, unless hind reil bv nothing more than right thai you should at 1'iay, man go to cnurcii. l lien 1 simply say- to them, you must go, unless you are sick, and I will punish you ll you do not obey me I and I shall deal wilh you in the same way." At the close of our conversation, he told i me that his servants, (although some did not at first like to attend.) soon became as pane I tual and regular as his own family, and that ; the good effects of preaching upon ihem could : already plainly be seen, especially in their j increased temperance, honesiy and faithful j ness in duly. Here I must close. It would do your heart ! good to visit that plantation, or one like it in Mississippi, which 1 shall describe in my next. The one just described is one of the '""st orderly, quiet, pleasant and prosperous plantations 1 have ever seen. Would Ihat there were more like il ! As ever, yours truly, PHILODOULOS.
