A word, sir, about giving people their liberty
before they are fitted to enjoy it, Here, sir, you seem to be in the wilderness, as well as the Israel ites. But alas, you have not like them a cloud to guide you. God did not lead the Israelite into Canaan immediately, because of their unbelief; but he did give them all their fVberty immediately, and executed terrible vengeance on Pharaoh and all his people, because they would not let his peo pie go. The emancipation was immediate .and unconditional. God did not leave his oppressed people to be fitted to enjoy liberty under the iron yoke of cruel task-masters. He first gave his people their liberty, and then undertook himself to prepare them to enjoy their liberty. Here is the perfect pattern which abolitionists wish to fol low. Would not Mr. Cresson, bad he been con suited, have taken a very different course ? would he not have said, you must first prepare these slaves to enjoy liberty, before you emancipate them? God's thoughts, Mr. Cresson, are not like our thoughts, nor His ways like our ways. But is He not wiser than man ? and will you not learn from His example to preach immediate and un conditional emancipation ? From the subject, as presented, it seems natu ral to make the following remarks : 1. Colonies have been settled by good men, and they have been settled by very bad men. 2. That apostate priests have been ready to countenance bloody and idolatrous colonizationists, and may do so again. 3. That very wicked men may be presidents of colonization societies. 4. That those who preach, 'you must prepare slaves to enjoy liberty before you emancipate them,' exactly reverse the order which God has established. He emancipates, then teaches. 5. The doctrines of the abolitionists agree with the conduct and claims of God. They say to slaveholders, as God did to Pharaoh, let the op pressed go unconditionally and immediately. Their doctrine is as old as Moses. And those who resist this doctrine, may be found fighting even against God, and have their portion with Pharaoh and his host. 6. It is no evidence that claims are not just be cause wicked men resist them, and are driven by them to acts of desperation. Such was the case with Pharaoh, and the oppressed were made to cry out under his oppression. And the truth often drives wicked men to desperation. 7. The same spirit that led Pharaoh to oppose the immediate emancipation of his slaves, will doubtless lead all his children to oppose the imme diate emancipation of their slaves. 8. Mr. Cresson must be a very unsafe guide as to facts and reasoning. And those who depend on his statements will be very likely to be decei ved, if all his statements are as incorrect as those we have considered. If he be an honest man, he must see with his fingers, and reason with his el bows. And when public lecturers can throw out matter so crude and incorrect, those who hear will do well to examine facts, and reason for them selves. KIAH BAYLEY. For the Voice of Freedom. Orleans County Temperance Convention. Agreeably to previous notice, a meeting of the friends of the Temperance Reform was holden at the Metjiodist Chapel in Barton, on the 26th Feb. 1839, (it being an adjourned meeting from the 18th Jan.,) for the purpose of forming a Courtly Young Men's Temperance Society. John H. Kimball, Esq. was called to the chair, and S. S. Clarke appointed Secretary pro tern. Prayer by Kev. Mr. Ohapin, ot Ureensboro . I he Committee appointed to prepare and report a Con stitution for the Society, reported the following, which was adopted : PREAMBLE. Whereas, the improper use of intoxicating li quors has been found to be the source of evils of incalculable magnitude, both as to the temporal and eternal interests of individuals, families and communities, and whereas this vice has such a fatal tendency in hindering the success of all the means which God has appointed for the moral and religious improvement of men, and whereas the various measures which the friends of christian morality have adopted, though not altogether un successful, have been found quite insufficient to give any effectual check to this desolating evil, and whereas some more vigorous means are evi dently required some system of instruction and .action which will make a steady and powerful impression on the present and future generations, and will in this way ultimately effect a change of public sentiment and practice in regard to the use of intoxicating drinks, and thus put an end to the wide-spreading vils of intemperance ; therefore re3olved.that the friends of lemperance now pre sent, form a Society, with the following CONSTITUTION. AnT. 1. This Society shall be called the Or leans County Young Men's Temverance Society Art. 2. The officers of this society shall be a President, one or more Vice Presidents, a Secret tary, a Treasurer, and an Executive Committee of five, who shall be elected annually, and dis- cnarge me uunes usually assigned to such ofii cers. Art. 3. Members of town societies within the County, formed on the principles of this society, and those who sign the following Pledge, shall be considered memDers ot mis society. PLEDGE. We, the undersigned, do hrrpW nmu itmt will abstain from the use of all intoxicating liquors as a beverage that we will not traffic in them, nor provide them for the entertainment of friends, or tor persons in our employment, and that we tlriJl fTble ways Countenance their use throughout the community Art. 4. The annual meeting of this society a mo committee shall direct. TIIE Art. 5. This ennstitution may be altered or amended by a vote of two thirds of the members present at any annual meeting. The Committee to nominate officers of the soci ety reported the following, all of whom were duly elected, vtz : Lemuel Richmond, President ; Thos. Jameson and Enoch B. Simonds, Vice Presidents; Sime on S. Clarke, Secretary ; Geo. H. Cook, Treas urer; Hubbard Hastings, Daniel Bates, Sidney S. Hemmingway, S. 13. Colby, and William Simpson, Executive Committee. Voted that the Presidents of the several town societies within the County become Vice Presi dents (ex officio) of this Society. The committee on resolutions reported the fol lowing, which were taken up separately, and af ter some very spirited and appropriate remarks from several trentlemen present, were passed: Resolved, That every young man, in view of the benefits that may result lrotn his example ana influence, is morally bound to give this cause his prompt and energetic suppfirt. Resolved, That the females of this County, in view of the powerful and salutary influence they may exert, and the blessings which they may be instrumental in conferring on future generations, are respectfully and earnestly requested to give to this cause their united and persevering ellorts. Resolved, That the time has arrived when the friends of lemperance are urged bv a sense of con sistency and a desire to do good, to seek after new means, and employ new efforts for the promotion of the enterprize in which they are engaged. Resolved, lhat moral suasion, wnicn, under the divine blessing, has accomplished so much in this work of reformation, cannot be expected to continue an adequate means to accomplish the whole work, for the reason that few are left unin fluenced who are subject to its power. Resolved, 1 hat the value and importance ot the temperance reformation are so generally known and so highly appreciated, that there is no danger n employing the lorce ot law to aid in the comple tion of this work. Resolved, That the General Assembly of this State ought to be urged with a zeal which will brook no denial, an argument that cannot be resis ted, and a perseverance which will never tire, to interpose the shield of a legal enactment to save those who will be saved in no other way. Resolved, 1 hat while employing the legitimate means which we possess, we should still depend upon God's blessing to crown our labors with suc cess. A very appropriate and interesting address was delivered on the occasion by S. B. Colby, Esq. of Derby, to a crowded and attentive audience. Voted, that we will use our utmost exertions to promote the circulation of the Temperance Star, soon to be published at Montpelier, under the di rection of the Vermont lemperance Society. Voted, that the thanks of this society be pre sented to Mr. Colby for his able and interesting address. Voted, that this society hold a semi-annual meet ng at Derby, on the 4th of July next, at 10 o' :lock, A.M. Voted, that the doings of this meeting be signed by the President and Secretary, and sent to the Voice of rreedom and the lemperance btar for publication. LiJiiU u luuriiUUiNU, rrcsiaeni. Simeon S. Clarke, Secretary. Home stic. Temperance Convention. In the absence of any official account of the proceedings of the late Temperance Convention at Woodstock, we give the following, from the Vermont Chronicle : The State Temperance Convention met at Woodstock, according to appointment, on Wednes day last. Hon. Jacob Collamer, of Woodstock, was elected President: lion. Zimn Howe, of Uas- tleton, Vice President ; George B. Manser, Esq., of Montpelier, and William Weston, Esq., of Bur lington, Secretaries. Delegates were present from all parts of the State, and the business was conducted with much pirit. The leading subjects before the Convention were the circulation of the " Temperance Star," and the License System. Lhc Vermont lemperance Star is published at Montpelier, under the direction of the Managers of the State Temperance Society. It was obvious Irom the statements made and the spirit exhibited that the Star would have an extensive circulation, at least in some parts of the State. In some towns arrangements had already been made to procure and circulate at least one copy to every two fam ilies. At a meeting of the Temperance Society in this village on Saturday evening, subscriptions were obtained for more than 1U(J copies, and a committee appointed to extend the subscription so as to secure a copy for every family. We have a letter from the President of the State Society, in which he expresses the hope that arrangements will be made for placing a copy in every family n the State. Let the friends of the cause take hold with becoming zeal and perseverance, and the work is done. " Terms. The Temperance Star will be sent to subscribers for one year on the following terms: copies directed singly 50 cents each ; 12 copies to one addrpss 25 cents each ; 26 copies do. 23 cents each ; 50 copies do. 20 cents each ; alivays in ad vance. Address George B. Manser, Montpelier, postage paid." In regard to the second subject named, the con clusion, we understand, was, that Memorials to the Legislature should ask for an Act repealing the License Laws, and prohibiting the traffic in ardent spirit as a beverage ; and that the act be referred to the people for eanction or rejection. We were unable to attend the Convention, and have not sufficient account of the proceedings to warrant us in attempting to give details. From the Vermont Chronicle. BANK OF WINDSOR. The undersigned, Directors of the Bank of Windsor, aware of the difficulties they would have to encounter in attempting to redeem the paper of the Bank, and sensible, too, or the general preju dice existing in relation to its solvency, have nev ertheless, from the date of its suspension to the present moment, put forth their most strenuous efforts to acquire the means of taking up its circu lation. We have seen with regret, for we have been unable to prevent it, that great sacrifices have been submitted to by the bill-holders. Nothing VOICE OF FREEDOM. has been more ardently desired by us, than that the period might soon arrive when we could, in good fuith, hold out to the community the expec tation that the obligations of the Bank in respect of its notes would be amply satisfied. But many and formidable obstacles were found in the way. These it is unnecessary to particu larize. Some of them are well known to the pub lic. The labors, the hazards, and the anxieties, however, attending the removal of these hindran ces, can be known only to those who have suffer ed them, We indulged the hope that certain claims in favor of the bank vould, sometime since, have been in whole, or in great part, secured, and that thereby sufficient assets would be obtained. While our operations to such an end were in pro gress, we could not have made any declaration as to the ability of the institution to take up its paper, without incurring the heaviest personal responsi bility, and exposing ourselves to deserved censure in case of failure. But it is now in our power to break silence. Having very recently succeeded to obtain possess ion of sundry securities on which we rely for the realization of assets, we feel justified in saying that, allowing for those contingencies against which no human prudence can furnish a certain guaranty, the outstanding notes of the bank will, according to our best judgment and sincere belief, be eventually redeemed by payment in full. So strong is our confidence in the certainty of that result, that we regard it as our imperative duty to caution all holders of said notes to retain them in their hands for redemption at the bank.1 , It may be proper to add that the Bank Inspector has been invited to examine the affairs of this bank, and that, so soon as his inspection shall have been made, an exposure of its condition will be given to the public. E. R. CAMPBELL ISAAC GREEN, I n. , J. P. SKINNER, Erectors. GEO. B. GREEN, J Windsor, March 8, 1S39. Correspondence of the Atlas. Bangor, March 10, 1839. With the close of the week subsided its excite ment and bustle, and we have again a peaceful and quiet day which no express nor swifter rumor from the Frontier has disturbed. We wait with patience, yet with some anxiety, the action of our Stale authorities, induced by the proceedings ol the General Government. Something, I may say much, has been gained lor Maine by the stirring events which have convulsed it to its centre. A distinct, deliberate denial of the British claim to possession and jurisdiction of her territory has been made in a quarter, which will at all events com mand respect a denial which must cause its spee dy withdrawal or bring the question to a final issue. VVc think, notwithstanding Mr Van Bu ren's suggestion, that the next arbitration of the dispute must be the arbitrament of arms. I have little doubt that but for the perplexed condition ol her relations with Russia, of her East Indian pos sessions, and the volcanic stale of the Canadas, England would buckle on her armour and con summate her arrogance and bad failh by waging an unnecessary war for an unjust and groundless claim, first faintly insinuated, at length stated in terms, and since persistPii in with nn obstinacy in creasing by time and becoming bolder by resist ance and opposition. She must have intended to fight for it it necessary, or if she expected us to yield to her demand, must have thought the Amer ican nation dead to all self respect, and destitute of the qualities which are essential to form a re spectable national character. Former lessons might have taught her better than this, and I think have done so.' What course she will take under existing circumstances time will discern. We are not without hopes that Mr Webster will be sent on the Special Embassy, If there is any dark ness in the lintish Councils on this question, a few rays from his enlightened and clear mind will dispel it. It would be for the administration a judicious appointment, and I think a well timed act of magnanimity. You will see by the Augusta papers that the Cumberland detachment of militia were reviewed at that place and addressed by the Governor on Friday. Gen. Scott is there, and has received the civilities of the Legislature and the citizens, and Mr Allen, our Representative, gave him on their behalf, an appropriate welcome to Maine. En passant, I will notice the fact that Sir John Cald well, from the Province, arrived here last night, and as no one at this busy and speculating time can pass through the city without having a specif ic errand assigned him, so it is said that he carries a proposition from Governor Harvey to our Govern or or to Washington, the tenor of which is, that the British may establish a road directly from the mouth of the Aroostook to Madawaska, and so on to Canada, yielding to them the territory north of said road, which would be a small strip south of the St Johns river, and about half the disputed tract north of it, for which we are to have the free navigation of the St Johns. This I presume is idle conjecture, and not deserving any attention but I mention it to show you that the quietest day here is not without its rumor. Augusta, March 9, 1S30. The reports that have reached us that a regi ment of British troops had arrived at Madawaska, from Canada, were not, probably, correct. Infor mation that can be relied on was received here last evening, direct from Quebec, that the 11th regi ment of Infantry left that place on Tuesday last and that they were the first troops that had left Can ada this season, for New Brunswick. Maine Boundary Dispute. As the difficulties on the Maine frontier are as suming a more formidable aspect, we have gath ered from various sources a succinct account of the history and merits of the dispute. The dis trict which is now called Maine at that time inclu ded a portion of the province of Massachusetts Bay, was acknowledged by the King of Great Britain as "a free sovereign and indpeendant state" in the treaty of peace of Sept. 31, 1783. The second article of that trea'-y defines the boundary line between the United States and the possessions of Great Britian. It says " It is hereby agreed and declared that the following are and shall be the boundaries of the United States, to wit : " From the northwest angle of Nova Scotia, to wit, that angle which is formed by a line drawn due north from the source of the St Croix river to the highlands, along the said highlands which di vide those rivers that empty themselves into the St Lawrence from those that fall into the Atlantic Ocean, to the norwesternmost head of the Connect icut Iivcr. " Again, further on, it says, " East by M'.'SBUJ fl- L a line to be drawn along the middle of ihe river St Croix, from it3 mouth in the Bay of Funday to its source ; and from its source directly north to the aforesaid highlands which divide the rivers that fall into the Atlantic Ocean from those which fall into the River St Lawrence." The attempt to ascertain the line indicated by these words, has given rise to the whole dispute. British authorities place " the nortwestern angle of Nova Scolia" at Mars Hill, about forty miles north of the source of the St Croix, and then run the line in a south westerly direction, through the region enclosed by the valleys of the St Johns, and Penobscot rivers. ' The United States claim that the line beginning at the source of the St Croix runs about one hundred miles north, across the St Johns to the sources of the small streams emptying into the St Lawrence. The land in dispute contains about 6,000,000 acres, nearly one third of the state of Maine, for the most part uncultivated but a bounding in forests thought to be of great value. It is remarkable that the boundary claimed by the United States, has been recognised on several successive occasions by the acts of Great Britian, first in the proclamation of 17G5 establishing the province of Quebec, and afterwards in the various commissions issued to the Governors of that prov ince. There can be no doubt that the lines desig nated had a definite and certain existence. This is confirmed by official admissions made by Great Britain before her .present claims were asserted in 1814 at the treaty of Ghent. When a joint commissioner under Jay's treaty in 1795 pro ceeded to fix the source of the fet Lroix, the lintish emmissioner in several instances acknowledged as well known and unquestionable the very limits which the Americans now assign. British pam phlets published before the treaty of Ghent admit the justice of our title and insist upon "the impor tance of changing the line and obtaining accession of this territory ;" and accordingly the Biitish a gents at Ghent suggest " such a variation of the line of the frontieras may secure a direct communi cation between Quebec and Halifax." Up to this period the case was clear. But Great Britain subsequently finding it to be her interest to run an other line ; made the whole matter a subject of a long negotiation, which was referred in 1S27 to tne arbitration of the King of the Netherlands. That monarch, confused Ly the multiplicity of conflicting statements or lor some other cause, a warded a kind of compromise which the Senate of the United States in 1S32 decided was no de cision of the case submitted to him, & of course not binding upon the States. The negotiations which have since taken place are replete with all the subtlety and special pleading of diplomacy. The British Government re-asserted its claim to the whole territory, in the convnunication of December, 1S35. The plan proposed by Mr Livingston, then Secretary of State, was a new and thorough sur vey of the whole face of the country. After many propositions and demands on both sides, a new joint survey was agreed on in IsJb, with the under standing that both governments adhere, it they please, to the respective interpretations which have been given to the various treaties. So far, then, as the negotiations of the general government and Great Britian are concerned, the business is no nearer its termination than it was many years ago. But the ground which Maine last year assumed, presents ,it as one of immediate practical impor tance, likely to involve the Union in war, unles. bro't to a more desirable issue by the justice of the adverse power. In March, of' 1S38 that Stale determined, should the Federal Government not appoint a commission of survej' by September of the same year, to make such an appointment of her own authority, and carry it into eflect at all risks. Whilst the decision is pending, there has hitherto existed a tacit agreement of the two gov ernments that both shall abstain from acts of ex clusive jurisdiction over the disputed territory. That such is the fact is evident from the follow ing extracts : Mr Livingston, in his communication dated Ju ly 21, 1832, remarks" Until the matter shall be brought to a final conclusion, the necessity of re fraining on both sides from any exercise of juris diction beyond the boundaries now actually poss essed, must be apparent, and will no doubt be ac quiesed in on the part of His Brittanie Majesty's Province as it will be by ihe United States." In reply Sir Charles R. Vaughan, says, "He is further toassui'e Mr Livingston that his Majes ty's Government entirely concur with that of the United States in the principls of continuing to abstain during the progress of the negotiation, from extending the exercise of jurisdiction within the disputed territory, beyond the limits, within which it has been hitherto usually exercised by the authority of either party."

Characteristics of tho Work It is hot a mere diary of events which hefcl the travel ler, but contains thousands of facts dates, numbers, pricos, &c., &c, which arc cither original or gleaned from sources not accessible in this country. Incidents, anecdotes and scones have been freelv intro duc.cd; but only such as tend to make the reader belter ac- quainted with the country; The most perfect impartiality is shown to every sect of Christians, and such details given of the various Missions as will make the work equally acceptable to every persua sion. Such sketches are given of the history of the Country. Towns and Missions which are described, as rcrre to. throw light upon their present condition. The map is beautifully executed, and may be consider ed original. Many important corrections have been madu by actual observation, and the remainder is chiefly drawn from original and unpublished surveys by British oflicers and Engineers and Surveyors, to which the author wa politely granted access. The pictures are wholly new, and form an important addition to our stock of oriental illustrations; no pains or expense has been spared in these or the mechanical execu tion. Five of these are on steel, showing landscapes of Maulmein, Tavoy, Mergui and Sagaing, and a curious page exhibiting specimens of 15 different oriental languages A great part of the work relates to countries almost en tirely unknown, even to the best informed persons in our country. The author from the important character of his mission, his intercourse with distinguished civilians and experien ced Missionaries, his deliberate stay at each place, his pre vious familiarity with foreign countries, and his long expe rience in the board of Missions, enjoyed Ihe highest ad vantages for gathering ample and correct details for the work. Chapters on the mode of conducting modern missions; or on the measure of success which has attended the en terprise; on the almost unknown tribes in and around Bur mah; and other important subjects are added at the close of' the work, and must constitute no small part of its value. The cost of the two volumes will probably not exceed $f'2 50, at which price it will be one of the cheapest worl'g issued from the American press. The publishers rely for remuneration rather on a large sale than a high price. A portion of the proceeds of the work are to be appro priated to the Foreign Missionary Board.
