"Saturday nights make people human , set their hearts to beating softly, as they nsed - to do before tbe world turned them into wax drums, and jarred them to pieces with tat- toe. ' Tbe ledger closes with a crash; the iron- doored Taults come to with a bang, up go the abutters with .a will, click goes the key in the lock.- It is Saturday night and the business breathes free again.

Here are the treafuie after all, and not in tbe vault, and not in the book are the record in the family Bible and not 'in the bank. , ' "May be you are a bachelor, frosty and 'forty.- Then poor fellow, Saturday nights re nothing to you, just as you are nothing to -anything. Get wife, blue-eyed or black eyed, but above all a true-eyed get a home, jjo matter bow little, and a little sofa just to hold two, or two and a half, and then get the two or two and a half in it on a Saturday night, and then read this paragraph by the light of your wi fe' eyes and thank God and take courage. "Saturday night!" faintly murmurs the 'languishing , as she turns wearily upon her couch; 'and there is another to come!'

Farmer Wbite with an expressive shake of the head, as he passed a neglected garden and broken down fences, in one of his daily walks. "Bad enough," was the reply of the com panion to whom tbe remark was addressed, "Neighbor Thompson appears to be running down bill pretty fast. I can remember when everything about his little place was trim and tidy." "It is qufte the contrary now," returned the farmer. "House, outbuildings, and grounds, all show tbe want of a master's care. I am afraid Thompson is in the down ward path." "He always appeared to be a steady, in dustrious man," rejoined the second speaker "I have a pair of boots on my feet at tbia moment of bis make, ami taey have done tne geod service." "I have generally employed him for my self and family," was the reply, "affd I nrust confess that be is a (food workman; but nev ertheless,! believe I'll step into Jack Smith's and order a pair of boots, of which 1 stand in need I always make it a rule never fo pat ronize those who appear te be running be hind hand. There is generally some risk in helping those who do not try to help them selves." . "Very true and as my wife desired me to Dee a'fibut a paTr of sl-'oes" of E'tf (his morn- ieg , I will follow your example, and call up on Smith. He :s no great favorite of mine however Mi idle, quarrelsome fellow," "And yet be seems" to be gathering ahead in tbe world," answered the farmer, "and I am willing to' give him a lift. But I have an errand at the butcher's. Step , in with me a momeot. I will not detain you." At the butcher's tbey met the neighbor who had been tbe subject of their previous conversation. He certainly presented a rather shabby appearance, and in his choice of meat there was a regard to economy which did not escape the observation'' of far mer White. . . r After a few passing remarks, the poor shoe maker tooi his departure, and the butcher opened hia account book with somewhat of an anxious air, saying, as he charged the bit of meat: . . .. s ; . , ..t, ... - . "I believe it is time that neighbor Thomp son and t came to a sett!emen't. Short ac counts make long ffTends." "No time to lose I should say," remarked the farmer. " "Indeed! have you heard of any trouble, neighbor White!" " "No, I have heard xfothTrig', bftt a tn.m has the use of hia eyes .you know; end I never trust any one with my money who is evidently going down hi!K" . . -, "Quite right! and I will send in, my bill this evening. I have only delayed on ac count pf the" 5rnes3 which the poor man has bad in his family all winter. I suppose! he must have run "behind hand a little, but still I must take cafe of BSrab'ef one." ! "Speaking of Thompson are you?" observ ed a bystanders, who appeared to take an in terest in the conversation. "Going dowff hill, is heJ I must look otft for myself the ft. He owes me quite a snm for leather. -1 did intend to give bim another month's credit: but on the whole, I guess the money wouhl be safer in my pocket." Here the four worthies separated, each with his mind filled with tbe affairs of neigh bor Thompson, the probability that he was' going down hill, and the best way to give him a push'. , , . In another" parts' of the village similar scenes were passing. "I declare!" exclaimed Mrs. Bennett, the dressmaker, to a favorite assistant, as she withdrew hrer1 head from the window whence she h'ad been gaz:nTon the passers by, "ff there is n'ot Mrs. Thompson,' the sh'oema ker's wife,' comfng ay with a parcel in her ha hd".-' She wants to engage me to do her spring work, I suppose. I think it would be a venterre. ' Bery onesay th'ey are running down hill, and it is a chance if I ever get my pay." - 'She hafl always paid as" rroniptlyv" Was the' reply - "True; h'tft that wag iff (He days of her pros perity. ;; I cannot afford to run any risks." "The entrance of Sirs.' Thompson prevent ed further conversation. She was evidently surprised at tbe refb's'at of Mrs. Bennett to do any wortt for her, but as great pressure of business Was pleaded as an excuse, there was nothiBg said,' arfd ee soon took her leave. , Another application proved equally unsuccessful." It was strange bow busy the village dress-makers had sud denly become. On her way home, the poor shoemaker s wife met the teacher of a small school in the neighborhood where ttf o ol her children attended. ' ' . - "Ah! Mrs. Thompson I am glad to see you," was the salutation. "I was about cal ling at your house.' Would it be conven ient to settle our little account this after noon!" " "Our account!" was the surprised reply. "Surely, the term lias not yet expired!" "Only half of it, but the present rule is to collect my money at that time. It is a plan which many teachers have adopted of late." "I was not aware that there had been any change in your rules, and I had made arrangements to meet the bill at the usual time. I fear it will not be in my power to do so sooner." The countenance of the teacher showed great disappointment,. and as she passed on in a different direction, she muttered to her self: i - "Just as I expected. I shall never get a ceut. Everybody says that they are going dawn, bill. must get rid of the children in someway, perhaps I may get a pair of shoes or two for the half quarter, if I man age right, byt it will never do to go on in this way,'' A little discomposed by her interview with the teacher, Mrs. Thompson stepped into a neighboring grocery to purchase some trifling articles of family store. "I have a little account against yau.-r Will it be convenient for Mr. Thompson to settle it this evening!" asked the civil shop keeper as he produced the article. "Is it his usual time for aetth"ng1" was a gain the surprised inquiry. "Well not exactly, but money is very tight just now, and I am anxious to get ail that is due me. In future i intend to keep short accounts. There is your little bill if you want to look at it. I, will ca.ll around, this evening, t is but a small affair." - Thirty dollars is n small sum to us just bow,," thought Mrs. Thompson aa she thougtfutly panned ker way toward home. "It seems strange that all these payment most be met just now, while we are struggling to recover tbe heavy expenses of the winter. I cannot understand it." Her perplexity was increased oponfind ingber husband with two bills in bis hand, and a countenance expressive of anxiety and concern. .Delaware J "Look, Mary," said he as she entered. "Here are two unexpected calls for money -one from-the doctor, and the other front the dealer in leather from whom I purchas ed my last stock. They are both urgent for immediate payment, although they have alwavs beeu willing to wait a few months until I could make arrangements1 to meet fh'eir claims. Brft misfortunes never come single, and if a man once gets a little be hind, handy trouble seems to' font in upon hinr." "Just so," replied his wife." "The neigbV bors think we are going down hill, and every one is ready to give us a pu'shu Here ere two more bills for you one from the grocer and1 the other from the teacner. 7 Replv was prevented bra Efnock' at the dor, and the appearance of a lad who pre sented a neatly folded paper and disappear ed.' "The buY6her's account, as I live!" ex claimed the astonished shoemaker. "What is to be dore Mary! So much money to be paid out, and very little comir'j' Tn; for some of my best customers have left me, although my work has always given' good satisfaction. If I could only have employment as u?ual and the usual credit allowed me, I could soon satisfy all these claims; but to afect te(S trctf is impossible, and the acknowledgement of my inability will send us still farther on the downward path." 'We must trust in providence," was tn'e consolatory remark of his wife, as a second knock at the door aroused the fear that an other claimant was about to appear. But the benevolent countenance of Uncle Joshua, a rare but welcome visitor, presen ted itself. Seating himself in the comforta ble Chair which Mary hastened to band him he saitf ik his excerttric, but friendly man ner: "Well, good folks, I un'dertftsrrd that the world does not go quite as well with you as formerly. What is the trouble!" 'There need be no troirble, air was the reply , "if man would riot add to the afflic tions which tbe Almighty sees to be neces sary for us. The winter was a trying one. We met with sickness and misfortunes which we endeavored to bear with patience. All would now go well if those around were not determined to push me in the downward path." But there lies the difficulty, friend Thompson. This is a selfish world. Eve ry body, or at least a great majority core on ly for number one. . If they see apoor neigh bor going down kill, 'their. "first thought is whether it will effect their own interests, and provided tbey can secure themselves, they care not how soon be goes to tue bot tom.. ., Tbe only way is to keep up appear ances. , Show no signs of going behind hand and all will go well with you." Very true, Uncle Joshua, but how is this to be done"? Bills that 1 did rrot expect to be called upon to meet for the next three months, are pouring in upon me. My best customers are leaving me for a 'more fortu nate rival. In short, I am on the brink of ruin, and naoght but a miracle can safe me. ' "A miracle which is very easily wrought tHen, I amagine, my gocil friend. What is the amount of these debts' which preerj so heavily uponyoff, and hov s'oon, in the com nftjn course of events, Could you discharge themi" "They do not eiceed offe Kindred dollars, replied the shoemaker, "and with my usual rtfn of work, 1 could make it all right in three or four months." " We will say six,"' waif the answer.' "I will advance you one hundred and fifty dol lars for six months. Pay every cent you owe; and with the remainder of the money make some slight additfWr or improvement in youY sTrop ot house, an'd p?t everything about the grou'nds in its' Gsual neat order. Try this plan for a few weeks and we will see what effect it haa upon ovfr worthy neighbors.' ' No, no, never mind thanking me. f am only trying an experiment on human nature. I know you of old, and have no doubt that my money is safe in your harrds." ' ' . -. Week's passed by. The advice of Uncle Joshua had been strictly followed, and the change in th'e shoemaker's- prospects' was vvorderful. He was ifpoken of as" one of the most ffifiving men in the village, and many marvellous stories' were lotd to" account for the Sudden alteration in his affairs.' It was generally agreed that a" dtstarrt refatif e had bequeathed to hint a legacy ; which had entirely relieved bint of his pecuniary diffi culties'.' Old ertstomers and new crowded in open him; They had never before real lied the beatfty afld durability of hia work. The polite butcher eelee'ted bim the besrt piece of meat for his inspection1 as he' entered, and was totally indifferent to tbe timre1 of pay ment. The dealer in leather called to inform him that his best hides awaited bis orders'.- The teacher accompanied the children' borfte to tea, and spoke in high terms of their im provement, pronouncing them among her best scholars. Tbe dress-maker suddenly found herself free from the great press of work, and in a friendly note expressed her desire to oblige Mrs. Thompson in any way in her power. " "Just as I expected," exclaimed Uncle Joshua, rubbing his hands exultingly as the grateful shoemaker called upon him at the expiration of six months, with the money which had been loaned in lime of need. "Just as I expected. A'strange world! They are ready to push a man up hill if be seems to be ascending, and just as ready to push him down if they fancy that his. face is turned that way. In future, neighbor Thompson, let every thing about you wear an air of prosperity, and you will be sure to prosper." And with a satisfied air Uncle Joshua placed his money in his pocket-book, ready to meet some other claim upon his be nevolence, whilst be whom he hnd thus be friended, with light steps and cheerful coun tenance, returned to his happy home.

" Witclvm it better than weapon of tear." Eecl-K.lS. I have thought, my friends that as this Anniversary of our American Independence has occurred on the oabbath, it wcold not be out of place, nor uninteresting to indulge in some reflections upon the combined in terests of our country, and holy religion, arAf upon those means by which eVr ffee insti tutions can best be preferred and perfected. The best interests of our country ate in- seperably connected with religion. Hence to my mind there is" a peculiar fitness in the Anniversary of oar Independence occurring now and then on the Sabbath. ' ' This combined interest cf our country and religion, is seen particularly in the fact that eur present Republican Goverment, is the product of religion. The' same book that teaches the religion of Jesus, inspires in those who study, that book, a desire for political and religious free dom. And it cannot be denied that the lib erty which we now possess, is a necessary consequence of receiving, riehly, of the tree principles taught in the word of God. Let us take a glance at the history of the Church and the world, for a few centuries back, and this, it seems to me, will be evi dent. The world bad been for rears pass ing through what is now styled the "Dark Ages." r During this period tire great Reformation corantenced; which was fast dissipating that moral darkness which brooded over the earth in consequence of the Reman Catholic Church, having concealed the word of God to that very -few indeed bad any access at all to the triie KgNt, , When lArtrer anxious. for bis own salvation, bad resorted to the cloister that be might there in the prescribed way nnd rest lor his soul, came in contact with a Bible, which was fastened by a crrainy be front that Bible began to light up his own sHiul, and that light vai desfirred to eliine forth and illume the whole World.' So rapidly Old this light spread through" the influence of lyuilier, aud so great did-the Reformation become that the See if Rome became alarmed at the movement, and com bined with the kings of the nations, against the people. Henry VIII, who had been zealous for re ligious liberty, arrogated to himself the very same spiritaal supremacy that he with the aid of the people, and in the name of Chris tian liberty, had wrested from the Pope of Rome. And he used his power in compelling couformity ttfth"e obnoxious faith and wor ship of Rome, conducted by Ecclesiastics who received their appointments from him self and h'eld thenf at his pleasure. The reign' ot Mary was in the same dire'c tionl, vizr a relapse to Roman worship. Queen Elizabeth reinstated ih'e Refofmaiion but reserved to herself the spiritual suprema cy. The people resisted all these Eccleeti eal usurpations of the Tudors; and the", to retaliate, attempted to jtrbvert the consti tutional aulhorty of Parliament.' In this perplexity Elizabeth, advised by sagacious statesmen and supported by tem porizing churchmen, resorted to the fav orite expedient iff politicians, vizr compro mise. Compromise is still a very favorite expe dient in adjusting conflicting- political inter ests f and does Very well where it is n'ot extended to the subversion of the natural rights',' or the moral duties of bolijects or citizens. But- how many lamentable in stacea" baVe we in car politfcar hlsloYy of c'o'iripro'miae,' wbefe both the iiaturat rights and moral dirties of citizens have been subverted.- Even where a compromise is proper within itself, ft derives all its strength from the full and fair consent of all the parties whom it hinds'.' - In this compromise Elizabeth would frar" monize the uncompromising Church of Rome and the equally uncompromising Lititudina rian Protestantism, by forming a new system midway between the two. The new sys tem was established by law, and conformity thereto was enforced by severe penalties.- This new system, notwithstanding its con formity to the divine precepts, in many res pects, was in its civil aspect? a mere politi cal institution; and was oppressive and odi ous to a zealous people, who regarded all political authority as sacrilegious usurpation. : Tbe friends also of civil liberty condemned it as turning the batteries which had been won from the Roman See, in the name of liberty, against the very fortesg of liberty itself. The church ot England was built en this compromise. But it was seen by those who longed for freedom from the tyranny of Rome, that the whole tendency of the compromise would be to relapse into Romanism; hence there was a demand for a new conservative power to prevent such a dreaded result. In this condition of things that new power ap peared in the form of a body of obscure re ligous persons, men of monastical devoutness, yet retaining the habits of domestic and social life; simple but not nnlearned, tbey were neither so rich that they forgot God, nor were they so poor as to debase their own soul, They were content with mechanical and agi ricUjlturaJ' pursuits, yet fully conscious of the liberty with which Christ had made theua tree; and they were, therefore, bold enough to con front ecclesiastical, and even royal authority in the capital. :...". For their independence in religious things they were persecuted, but this only increased their strength.. Tbey believed themselves to be the chosen emissaries of God for the advancement of religions freedvrm. hence they were willing, to become outcasts among noeou . They, an, nounced as their owns rule of conduct, "That no article of faith, ao exercise of ecclesias tical authority, no rule of discipline, and sot even a shred of, ceremonial, ox sacrament, ishon.ljLh&. "i.f Pjed.. unless sanntionjyLby a. t?3 direct warrant from irrciea oy toemaeives." - ney claimed mat iii ihb iree exercise ot meir own consciences enngirionea ny we lloiy apirtt, tney had right te interpret the Scriptures for them- . uey ueueveu uiai uoa, aimougn a benevolent atrrer was yet jealorts towards diaotrsdieffce of hia revealed will, and would fnuiiii hujuuuj ucgicct oi us conunana menu. . r . -.;., t - lhis siody of men,- With theffe views arfd principles we're the 'PurilansS "They came Into the world to sa?e the world from deS- pousm; and the world comprehended them not." And even now, some would deny them thaC glorious part which God caused them to perform in the struggle for civil and religious iibptifu They e?ffsed to' aetniiesrce in this compromise of Queen Elizabeth, be cause it involved a surrender of natural rights and a dereliction front duty toward Goc. They were however true Christians, herYce while tbey claimed to act in accorda'nee wi'th their va consciences, tbey were willing te7 grant flhe same privileges to' others, that they claimed for themselves; hence they did not set up. their convictions of duty as a standard for others, who subscribed to the christian faith;' but allowed to all their fellow subjects the same broad religious liberty which they claimed to enjoy. They persisted in non conformity to the prescribed mode of wor shfp'.. And the more they were pressed the more strongly did they r'eist,'an(fthe stronger the resistance, the more severe their perse cution. -The Puritans bore, unflinchingly, their testimony against the compromise. In consequence of this they were for mure than one. hundred years virtually outlawed : as citizens and sffbjscts, and ' outcasts from the established Church; but they bore it all, firmly 'adhering to their principles, . before magistrates and councils, in the pillory, un der stripes, in marches, in camps, in prison, in flight, in exile, among licentious soldiery and dissolute companions, in neiffhborinsr lands, on tbe broad ocean, when the mari ners- lost their compass, and when the ship supplies became scanty, and hers3ams open ed to the Wares, and on unknown coasts houseless and homeless, tarnishing and dy ing in tlie forest, surrounded with snow and ice,' contending with savage beasts, and more savoge men. Thus faithful to their principles, the compromise policy failed; civil and religious liberty -was not crushed out or destroyed, but it arose erect, it trium phed, and itis still gaining new and wider fields. And tyrants have trembled otf their thrones, as tuey iiaveread . of its powerful and glorious progress.-: ' a ! The Puritan thus persisted and prevailed because they had adopted one true aud sub lime principle of civil conduct, namely, "that a subject in any slate has a natural right to liberty of consciece.' And this great -and fiofre principle they havt learned from tire wbrk of God. They did riot claim1 to' defr-'e tlfe right of toleration",' from the common law, of the stJttftes o'f ttia i realm, or everf from" that HTnagnarffntrirot between the soveriga ud the subject, wlitcrr some had invented about tlrut lime ors a' basis? of civil right.' Tuey resorted at once to that older and broader law, that law which was more stuble than all these,- a law universal in its application and in its obligation; established by the Creator of all things, and judge of all men, and there fore paramount to all known constitutions. Such was the source from which, they claimed to derive their right of thinking and actio" for themselves in religious matters. . They did not lay claim to tin discovery of this great principle, or to the pro mulgation of it,' for others had talked of it, and wrote about it. Theirs consisted in having de duced the principle to actual and effective ap plication as a rule by which to be governed in political conduct. In acting upon this principle they did not wish to be disloyal subjects, they would not trample upon the lawa" of th'eir government With impifSity.nor disregard their rightful sov erigrts. and they would not appeal Irom these enly as they appealed to a higher power. And while they regarded themselves subjects to civil magistrates, they at the same time regarded themselves as subjects to a still Kty ker power; and it was only when civil law infringed upon the right ol consviencethat they claimed the right la disregard that law. They revered the .W of irtagistrates, but they revered the law of God more. Listen to the ma'ntier in which' they s'polfe tponjthis point, when imprisoned:' "Upon a careful examination of the Ifbly Scriptures, we find the English" hierarchy to be different from Christ's in'stitution'and to b'e' derived from Antichrist, being the same the Pope left ?rr this land, to which we dare not subject ourselves. We farther find that God has commanded all that believe the gos pel to walk in- that holy path'acd order which he has appointed iii hns" ctfurch Wherefore, irt the reverend fear of his name, we' h'aVe joirred otrrSelves together, and subjected our souls and bodies to those laws and ordinances, and have choaen to ourselves Birch a ministry of pastors, teachers, elders, and den-cows,- a Obr8t has given taf his church oti earth to tbe world's- end, hoping for the promised a sistance of bis grace in our attendance upon bim, notwithstanding any prohibition of men, or what by melt can be done unto us. We are ready to prove our ehurch order to be warranted by' the word of God, allowable by her Mijesty's laws, and noways prejudicial to the. sovereign power, and to disprove the public hierarchy worship, and government, by such evidence as our adversaries shall not be able to withstand, protecting, if we fail herein, not only willingly to sustain such de served punishment as shall be inflicted upon us, but to'become conformable for the future, if we overthrow not our adversaries. . We therefore in the name of God and of our sovereign the Queen, pray that we may have the benefit of the laws and of the pub lich charters of the land, namely, tbat we may be received to bail, till we be by order of law convicted of some crime deserving of bonds. We plight our faith unto Gad and our alleigance to her majesty, that we will not commit anything unworthy of the gospel of Christ, or to the disturbance of any common peace and good order of the land, and that we will be forthcoming at such reasonable Warning as your lordships shall command. Oh, let us not perish before trial and judg ment, especially imploring and crying out to you for the same. However, we take the Lord ot Heave and Earth, and bis angels, together with your own consciences, and all persona in all ages, te whom this our suppli cation may coote, to witness that we have hero truly advertised your honors) ot one case and maze, and have in all humility offered to come to Christian triaJU" How beautiful, and yot with touching; ef fect doea this opening of their cause by the Puritans illustrate the- divine instruction, "That the- fear of tbe Lord is the begiontBg of wisdom. 1 I do not suppose that the Puritan vnvderl stood the full scope of that principle- which tbey laid down ; they no doubt in some in stances acted inconsistent with it themselves the acriptures as inter- but Uii-'Uustratea another great truth, J If these principle, are ao pure and now j." They claimed that viz: "That human progress is onlv the nui. I -rfi i .i.liL pure ana pow- . viz: mat numaa progress is only the pul- ; ling ot an endless chain suspended from tbe a turone ot Li ad; the links of which are infi uite in number, and can . be grasped by the uuman nana only one at a time. .

J'lle that lovetllC jnot fi'is brother whom he hath seen, H'ow can he love God whom he hath not seon,", ThVs Puri tan' principle then involves the p'onticiT equal ity of all men. C'ajl'iite rights grow out of our moral constitution. If so then tire aXolute rights of all are tlie saiiii. -Political equality' is ''cbMrin else thar? tie full enjoymeut of those, absolutef rights, which arise out of our moral conatitulion. God ga?e to each this moral constitution, hence any infringment peh' the r?gGts" which grow out or tbia, unless those rights have beeS forfeited by crime, is forbidden by di vine authority. r ' . '; Here then we see something' of the ex tent of that principle laid down by the Pu ritans aud drawn by them directly from the Word of God. . We may learn from the following quota tion, how the Puritans understood their own great principle in its bearing upon th'e rights' ol conscience : "Liberty of conscience," said one of their earliest organs, "is the natural right of every man he that will look back an past times, and examine into tbe causes of . subver sion and devastation of States and countries, will find it owing to the tyranny of princes and the persecution of priests. The minis ters of the established church say that if we tolerate one sect we most tolerate all. ,Thia is true. They have as good a right to their consciences as to their clothes, or estates. No opinions or sentiments are cognizable by the magistrates any furthur than' they are incofniistent with- the poWer1 of crVil govern' metit.". ' " ' , . The tendency of ibis Jpurltatl principle was to a pure systeni of republican govem rirenV. As I haVe said, I do not sfppoe that. they fully understood this.' .'They did not seem' to' be seekiirg a repcblrciin- form ef gov efnmet, but o'nry liberty of conscience;' or freedom frorrf that ctfntrol wMeb the State wUu!raterjhjeiu But if the State could "irot eontrof this thrcrs would necessarily, follow ar separation of Church and State.- If then the ChuVch and State be re para ted and political equallity be established, then necessarily follows a re publican form of government. Equal toler ation in religion, and equal enjoyment of all natural rights, are inconsistent with the se crecy, and power, and oppression which seem i to'be necessary to the existeuce of monarchy and aristft'eracy. That the Puritans were slow to discern the tendencies of the principles they laid down, and that they did not thus act for the pupose of overthrowing their form of gov ernment,! evident froin what they said them selves: "Although (said they to Elizabeth) her Majesty be incensed against us, as if we would obey no laws, we take the Lord of Heaven and Earth to witness that we ac knowledge, from the bottom of our hearts, her Majesty to be our lawful Queen, placed over us. for our good; and we give God our most humble aud hearty thanks for her hap py government; and both in public and pri vate we constantly pray for her prosperity. We renounce all foreign power, and ac- knowledge brer Majesty's supremacy to b'e lawful and just. VV detest all error and heresy. Vet we desire that her M.ijsty will not think us disobedient seeing- we suffer ourselves to'be displaced rather th'an'yield to some thig3 required. Our bodies and goods and all wa have are in her Majesty's hands; only our souls we reserve to our God, who is able to save and condemn us' Aiid even long after thisttltfiY'tliehid en joyed a republican government for some time, the Colony of Massachusetts saluted Charles IT 6flf his restoration, with this loyul'ailclfes?: "To enjoy our liberty', arm to walk accord ing to the faith and order of th'e Gospel, was' the canse of oil transplKntrng- oiffselvee with" our wives, our little ones; and our substance, choosing the pure christian worship, with a good conscience, in this remote w ilderne?s,- rather than the pleasures' of England with submission1 to tbe lorposmorrs of the' hierar chy to which we could not yield without an evil conscience.' We are not seditious to' the interests of Caspar." We see then that our Republic did not grow oat of desire for a republican form of government, but from a desire to enjjy the natural rights, whiah God had guaranteed to them, and which rights they learned that they possessed from the study of the Bible. To enjoy the rights of conscience then led the Puritans to seek an asylum in this land. Once here and-in the enjijyinent of these feelings, tbat principle ol freedom, which they had imbibed from the Word of God, developed more and more, applying it self to one after another of the natural rights 'of man; until the time at last came, when the people felt, tbat if they suffered taxation they had a right to representation. Thua they were' led along, until tbey regar ded themselves as called upon by God to throw off that tyranny, which had been ao long depriving them of their rights. Hence the Revolution followed, and the establish ing of that American Independence which we have so long enjoyed. " I need not aay that all this bus been vouchsafed to us, nutler the kind nasi oi God, aud that to him our hearia of unfeign ed gratitude ahoold rise. Blessings so great and so glorious as these we thia day enjoy, must call forth thanks from every feeling heart.

And if the time shall come, when the Bible shall be excludsd from the mass of mankind,' in this i our country, then too will the time come, in which our free institutions' will' be abolished. In proportion then, as" the masses" o( out people derive tVeiV Ifrio'w'ledge and princi ptes from the Bible, in that proportion will our liberties be safe. Said Chief Justice Hornblower, "Let the Bible have its proper influence on the hearts of men and our lib erties are safe, our country blessed anil the world happy.

If we would preserve and perfect our free institutions we must labor faithlully for tbe removing of all systems of evil, ei ther social, moral, or political.
