Mr. Kuitur: Some recent articles in tho Buxlc
have cnlled to mind one or two incidents whirh
occurred years ago, and nro connected in my mem -
nij with tho name of the !!i:v. Ai.jssm StVi.aiii.
I well remember how indignant ho felt nt the
conduct of certain jnie-tly iritrignero, tho sole
.,1'iiecl of whose iircscn. o in' Boston! seemed to bo
tnrrush tho spirit of abolition, whic h tliey vnii.lv
honed had t.nishcd ill tho then scarce extinct
flames of Pennsylvania Hall. In tho following,
lines, wliieh I have copied for insertion in ,,)ltr :
paper,. St. Clair strove to give vent to hi feedings;'
ml if snmo of your readers may think thero is
more truth than vwini in them. I bono volt will
tull them it is for the first named quality you
Ono of the most vivid impressions I have of St.
(iair, is, as ho appeared in n sick hod on the fore-,
lioonofonoof thodars the Now England Ami-'
Slavery Convention was in session. H0 had heard
of n priestly attempt that was alx.ut heing nia,lc
to prevent Abhy Kelly heing appointed on a com-
mittee, nnd so anxious was he to defeat so unfair n
movement, that though physically unfit to leave!
his chamher, he was nt the afternoon meeting to
apeak and vote in defoneo of woman's equality
upon the anti-slavery platform.
Should the Detroit Froo Democrat, or any other
Free Soil paper wish to copy this comiiiunicalion-
pootry and nil "Barkis is williu."

Lines written on witnessing the power and
management of tho Bishops to keep out, or kill,

Methodist Conference, met in Boston, June,
BY ALANSON ST. CLAIR.
DEVIL AND THE BISHOPS.
Tho liumblo Christian fain would know
AVhy Bishops serve tho Devil so;
. Why lord, oppress, manage and scheme,
, And yet o hugely pious seem ;
One only style his carcass know
' In splto of fashion's ebb and (low ;
Why powor sits perched upon his thumb,
Why at his bidding ull are dumb;
Why nets of his nro never evil,
That others do to servo the Devil:
A secret this ; though dark ns night,
''(Draw back the Curtain) nil is light.
'Of old, when Bishops had their birth,
' Tho Devil set his foot on earth;
To snatch high heaven his only aim,
To mnke the souls of men hit game.
To Jesus Christ he caine apace,
. With cloven foot anil smutty face,
Claiming the power of (iod's right hnnd,
And ownership of sea nnd land,
. To Jesus said, " All this is mine,
. "But worship me, and all is thine."
Christ spurned the offer with ilii-daiii,
And from the Devil fled amain.
Near by his sido (as wont to keep)
A Bishop uow o'erjoyed did leap;
From dizxy height his mighty soul
Ccnipassod the earth from pole to pole;
. Hasty tho proficr to so -ure,
Bowed down before tho Devil's lure.
"Thy offer, pray, transfer to me,
" Father or lies ! I'll wolsl.ip thee:"
" I icill, I wiu, isrr.r.i!" he f .iid,
"And ever moro will give tl.ee aid,
" Nor thou alone, but all thy tribo
" Shall bo my children by this hi il e ;
"Come join tho league, nnd plight thy faith,
' And we'll be neighbors nfter death."
" Enough ! enough I I will ii.deed,
"Take pen and parch-icnt, write the creed."
" A sect devout, unlearned, nnd low,
"Will soon arise this se't undo.
" Enter their rank, npproie their zeal,
" For (Lid's in; will and pl.ins roieal ;
" I'so pious cant, pray loud and long;
"Join with them in the holy song;
" Make them h'.iin npul , nnd then
" Be thou their tied, and they thy men.
" Strike hands w ith tyrants, make tho sluvo
" Despair bonenth oppression's wave;
"With clavery hold affinity ;
" Make Doctors in Divinity
" Of brokers in the tiadu of blood,
" Who laugh to Hcorn tho wrath of (iod.
" Make merchandise of souls for pelf,
" Steal He.ivcii's cloak to serve myself;
" Pervert tijd's word, and mako it prove
"That slavery is from above;
" Drive desolation's fury car,
" Smoking w - it la ruin wide and far,
" Through sweetest, tenderest, holiest ties
" Of mnn, nor heed his groans or cries ;
" Mako half tho church the slaves of those,
"Who nro (iod's bitterest, deadliest foes;
" From North to South, from Stato to State,
" Bide forth with demon speed and hate;
" Set up the cry ' Peace, peace, be still !
" ' Why try our brotherhood to fill
44 With agitation nnd division T
" 'Can't wo hold slaves without collision?'
" I'ntil nt lust, tho licst two-thirds
" Is mode a cage of unclean birds.
' Then turn thy steed, chargo full in faco
" Of all who show soino signs of grace ;
"With foulest infamy pursue,
4,Muko them for respite gladly suo,
"''Or else unchurch them in tho strife ;
"' Swcur it were moot they lost their life.
" This is tho creed ; nil w ho confess
" Must wenr a Bishop's cant and dross."

Dear Friend Mariis; A not over good nutiired

however, it socms but a vision of the fancy. True,

tho work to which I have consecrated my life.
There is little of r.ews just now in this quarter
to interest your readers. All thero il of politic"
worth recording, has been already registered. Of
religion, something might bo said perhaps, only
that our churches are too far evaporated, to deserve
much attention. The continual cry of Iraiuitii
ami bitrrcnneii, is heard on every hand. No trick
is left untried, nn ministerial magic is not used, to
wako tho former frenzies of revival. But v.iin is
tho attempt. Here nnd there a convert is boasted;
but generally, from a class the world enn surren
der to the church w ilhoiit suffering material loss.
The church must get nnd proclaim a religion,
whoso morality is as least ns good as tho world,
before she can very deeply or powerfully impress
any but thnc whose blindness is total, or whose
depravity drives them to any refuge which may be
offered. While our pulpits continue to eulogize
and glorify such paragons of impiety nnd wicked
ness as Daniel Webster and Henry Clny, they
must not expect politicians nnd other men of. the
world, will hold them, or their doctrines nnd pro
fessions, in very high esteem. For politicians
never exalted their mural qualities; never much
praised their devotional oxeroisos of mind, or
religious churn ters. Thoso who knew them best,
' understood very well, that tho hiss said about them
j in thee respects, the letter. And when tho pul
I pit voluuteors to do that which siliiics disdains,
' let the pulpit bewuru of the result. But it is too
la c now.
The fatal deed is done. And tho pros-
cut organization of our churches can slm e no
of our cliun hes can
But Truth nnd Justice are yet in the ascendant.1
God lives, nnil because ho lives, his own cnuse
must nnd shall prosper. Tho past centuries nro
all scattered with wasted and worn out systems of
religion, like a shoro with wrecks. Never, how
ever, has thoro been total loss. Nor ever shall.
tied will renew ami revive his own cause, and per
petuate a reed on earth, until that day when he
shall glorify it to n general nnd immortal triumph,
in his own kingdom in heaven.
