n righteous Judge, who will render to every one
according to their works. In that day will it be
said to the Senator from Kentucky, "In as much
as yc have done it unto the least of these my breth
ren, ye have done it unto me." It is time that
honorable men and great men should be reminded
that God wilt bring them to death and to judgment.
And if they do iniquity, they must answer for it
as well as their poorest slave. Happy would it
be if our great men would act for eternity, and re
member that verily there is a God that judgeth in
the earth. K. BAYLEY.

The Bible Cause.
Mb. Editoh, Being engaged as agent of the
American Bible Society, for' the Slates of Maine,
New Hampshire and Vermont, I wish to call the
attention of your readers to the present claims and
prospects of this Society. The Bible cause is one
which must commend itself to the approbation of
all who love God and regard the Bible as his word.
The delegates, in their address at the formation
of the American Bible Society, thus remark " If
there be a single measure which can overrule ob
jection, subdue opposition, and command exertions,
this is the measure. That all our voices, all our
affections, all our hands, should be joined in the
grand design of promoting peace on earth and
good will towards man ; that they should resist
the advance of misery 'should carry the light of
instruction into the dominions of ignorance, and
the balm of joy to the soul of anguish ; and all
this by diffusing the oracles of God, addresses to
the understanding an argument which cannot be
encountered, and to the heart an appeal which its
loftiest emotions rise up to second. Under such
impressions and with such views, the American
Bible Society has been formed. Local feelings,
party prejudices, sectarian jealousies are excluded
by its very nature. Its members are leagued in
that which calls up every hallowed, and puts
down every unhallowed principle the dissemina
tion of the Scriptures. In such a work, whatever
is dignified, kind, venerable, true, has ample scope;
while sectarianism, littleness and rivalries can find
no avenue of admission." The first article of the
constitution expressly limits the labors of the So
defy to the sole object of encouraging a wider
circulation of the Holy Scriptures ' icilhout note
or comment.'1 This is the broad principle which
admits Christians of every name, and all friends
of the Bible consistently to unite in extending its
circulation. " The second article of the constitu
tion provides, in le fullest manner, for extending
the labors of the Society into other countries,
whether Christian, Mahometan, or Fngan. Its
designs will not be accomplished till the Bible is
found in every dwelling on earth. It looks with
an eye of benevolence on the whole human race,
and seeks no other incentive to exertion than the
sight of misery and distress ; and looks for no
other reward than to behold the nations elevated
in the scale of intellectual and moral existence, to
the light and purity of God's holy word." Such
are the principles and designs of the American
Bible Society ; and all that must be necessary for
such a Society to obtain the liberal patronage of a
Christian community is the requisite information
concerning its principles, designs and wants. For
the purpose of giving such information I would so
licit a small space in your paper, now and then,
as I may find opportunity to scribble a few lines
for the Bible cause. J. Lane,
Agent of the A. B. S.

Who Bids Highest ?
Me. Knapp : In order to obtain the votes of
slaveholders Mr. Van Buren pledged himself to
oppose the passage of any law to abolish slavery
in the District of Columbia during his administra
tion. In his famous pro-slavery speech, Mr. Clay
goes much farther in his bid. He goes not only
for slavery in the District, but for perpetual slave
ry in the South, for new slave states, and for the
slave trade between the states. What more can
slaveholders wish for ? Has he not fairly out bid
Mr. Van Buren ? How then can slaveholders re
sist his claims? He is one of them ; their inter
ests lie near his heart, and he has thrown all his
influence into the scale of slavery. Whv should
they not then knock off to him the next Presiden
cy? Can any candidate bid fiigher f w ill any
man do more to support the peculiar institutions
of the South than Henerv Clay ? What stronger
pledge can slavery herself desire ? Why should
she not then crown her favorite son ?
But some have snarled at Mr. Van Buren for
his gratuitous pledge, and have condemned his
conduct in pointed language, who may now wish
to support Mr. Clay; what can they do? Do,
why, why, strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
K. B.
Mr. Van Buren's pledge was, to veto " any
bill for the abolition of slavery in the District of
Columbia against the wishes of the Slavehoi.ding
Stales." The wishes of the Slaveholders, not the
constitution, not the will of a majority of Congress,
or)f the people, is the rule of his action, The
wishes of Slaveholders being Mr. Van Buren's rule
of action, we conclude that he would not hesitate
to go "neck and neck" with his competitor in the
race of infamy. He that is unjust in little will be
unjust in much. He that is pro-slavery in the
District of Columbia, will be pro-slavery anywhere.
We regard these men on a dead level as respects
this question.

The Supremacy of the taws.
A Sermon by Rev. Albert Barnes, of Philadelphia,
published in the National Preacher, New York,
August, l$as. Text, Kom. XIII. 17.
The preacher begins this very interesting and
seasonable discourse with the followiner princinles
wnicn ne linns advanced by the Apostle in the text:
i. iiiai government is instituted Dv Uou.
4. oummssion to government and to law is a
duty to God.
3. Resistance to the laws except in matters of
conscience is resistance against God, and is a sin
against him.
4. One design of government is to protect the
mnocorit in tne exercise ot their riehts.
5, It is also the design of civil government to
punish the violators ol the laws.
After adverting to the occasion furnished for the
discussion of this subject by the disagreeable scenes
ot violence, in disregard ol law and order, with
which our country has been cursed for several years
past, the preacher proceeds to show the necessity
and importance of the supremacy of the laws, or
ot a government ot law, and the way in which
this may be secured. He distinguishes three
kinds of government the will of a single despot,
the will ot a mob, and a government ol law. With
great clearness and force of expression he shows
how much worse lor community is the second than
the first, and argues the importance of the third
from the consideration that this alone can give se
curity and prosperity to a people : that God's gov
eminent is a government of law : and that God re
quires us to submit to the laws, even when better
laws could be made, unless they violate the dictates
ol conscience.
The plea that there are evils which the laws do
not reach and which a mob may correct, he refutes
by saying, in substance, Let laws be made which
will reach them. Let error be opposed by argu
ment, lolly by ridicule, ollences against taste by
standing aloof from them. The very way to prop
agate obnoxious sentiments is to raise a mob against
them, and thus call forth the sympathies of the
community towards their authors. Admit the
principle ot interposing a mob to correct evils not
eached by law and no man is safe.
Tho following things the preacher considers
needful to securing and maintaining the suprema
cy of the laws.
1. The influence and prevalence of the princi
ples of the christian religion.
2. The success of the temperance reformation.
3. The sentiments of the virtuous and upright
part of the community must be right on this sub
ject. 4. There must be a magistracy that is unshrink
ing in the execution of the laws.
o. Ihe right ot tree discussion must be con
ceded. On this last topic the oulhor observes : " All our
institutions are based on the right of free discus
sion. It is assumed in this country that all sub
jects may be examined. We have no liberty that
does not suppose this. Herein is our warfare
with tho tyrants of the old world ; herein is our
contest, with those thrones of despotism which have
so long tyrannized over man ; herein is the rea
son why monarchs turn pale in their palaces, and
tremble on their seats ot power ; herein is the con
test of the Protestant religion with the Papacy ;
herein is the struggle between freedom and ar
bitrary power. We owe our present elevation to
this freedom of discussion more than any thing
else. It is because mind has met mind, and thought
conflicted with thought, and because there has
been a healthful agitation of public opinion an
agitation, compared with the leaden slumbers of
other nations, like the healthful motion of the wa
ters of the mighty deep compared with the still
ness of the stagnant pool it is to this that we owe
all that is great and valuable in our nation. It is
because it has been hitherto a maxim in the Re
public that there was no topic which might not be
subjected to the most free enquiry ; no point in
politics, in morals, in science or in religion which
might not be canvassed most freely, by any press,
or by any man, in any primary assembly, or in
any Legislative hall, it is owing to this, that we
are now a nation of freemen. Our countrymen
have had no other idea of liberty. No matter from
what quarter, or by what means any sentiment is
advanced every American has believed that he has
a perfect right to examine it, and to embrace or to
reject it as he pleases, or to express his sentiment
in regard to it, in'any proper place, or to any class
of men. It is THE right on which all our insti
tutions depend.
The extraordinary doctrine which has been re
cently advanced that there are some points which
must never be subjected to free discussion ; the lit
tle sensibility which has been felt in regard to the
claim, and the measures which have been adopted
to defend it, and the sympathy which those meas
ures have met, has done more to alarm the true
friends of liberty in this land, than all that has ev
er happened from the efforts- of foreigners, or all
the dangers that have ever threatened us from
abroad. We need not fear foreign armies. We
have measured strength with them and our swords
have met theirs in deadly strife ; and we have set
tled the point that our liberties are safe from any
foreign invasion. We need not dread their fleets,
for we can build a navy like theirs, and can, if
necessary, meet the mistress of the Ocean ' on the
Mountain wave.'
Buthow shall we meet this sublle enemy ? How,
if one half of the nation shall refuse their brethren
the right of the fullest enquiry into all that per
tains to the national morals, liberty, character, wel
fare? The pulse of freedom beats languid when
this right is denied. It sends vigorous tides of life
and health only when it is conceded that every
thing may be investigated freely. No matter to
what subject the point relates.
The moment the principle is conceded that there
is one point that may not be examined, that mo
ment our liberty ceases. As long as it is held
that there is one principle in science or in religion
one doctrine of government, or maxim of law,
that may not be examined ; that there is one tri
bunal, be it the mquisilion or tho Star Chamber,
that may not be examined ; one custom or opinion
that may not be tested by reason, or the bible, that
moment our liberty is at nn end. A wedge is en
tered that may be driven and that will bo driven
until the whole fabric of civil and religious free
dom is riven asunder, and is demolished. Thai
moment, we become a different people from those
who landed on tho rock at Plymouth, and those
who planned and achieved our liberty. That mo
ment, the dark shade of despotic power begins to
stretch itselt over our fair land. 1 he shadows
of death will spread all along our hills and vales;
and our country be destined to sink in the horrors
of a long night of ages.
This right of free discussion is not to be denied
It is to be conceded that all things pertaining to
the public welfare may be examined. There is to
be no disturbance ; no interruption ; no intimida
lion ; mere must; oe no stripes, no burninff, no
murdering for the free and full exercise of this
right. Argument is to be met by argument and
not by the lire brand ; principles are to be settled
most freely by discussion, and not by a rifle or a
dirk ; thought is to be met with thought, and not
by the cries ol an infuriated and intoxicated mul
titude. What argument cannot put down, must
stand ; and what can be met by no other weapons
man me nre Drana or trio rine, must endure as
long as the everlasting hills. Everyman, there'
fore, who can contribute in the least degree to
the defence and illustration of this riofht confers
an invaluable service on his country, on human
nature, and on the world. When his name sha
have been forgotten, the principles which his fee
ble powers have contributed to defend shall live in
the nuTmcntinr happiness of mankind : in the
elevation of human nature to its highest dignity
in the liberal arts, the sciences, the literature of
future ages ; in all the departments of state, in
the supremacy of iustand equal laws, and in the
universal glory of the church of Christ on earth
Be it ours to defend this right, and to help to trans
mit it unsullied to future times. By all the pow
ers of argument it is to be defended ; by all the
tenderness of persuasion ; by all the firmness of
Christian principle and lofty patriotism ; by every
man who loves his country or the Church ; by
the pen, the press ; in the pulpit, in the legislative
hall ; by the hreside, and in the seminary of learn
ing. Thus only when this right is always and
every where conceded, will the supremacy of the
laws be maintained ; thus only can we look lor
the wide prevalence of Christian & virtuous liber
ty, & for the universal reign of truth. Christians
& fellow citizens, let there be one community on
earth which shall assert and maintain the omnip
otence and the supremacy of law ; one country
where the capricious will ot a despot, be it of an
individual or a mob, shall never be allowed to
The discourse will reward an attentive perusal
In preparing it, Mr. Barnes, as a wise observer of
the times, has given a good example to his breth
ren in the ministry, which, for the good of the
country, it is to be hoped will he extensively fol
lowed. C. W.
Lyndon, Vt. March 8th, 1839.
Bear Brother, We are not sleeping in this re
gion as do some others on the slave and abolition
questions. Ihe doctrine of immediate emancipation
is taking a deep and wide root in Vermont. We
are fully resolved, by the grace of God to push the
battle until the victory is won.
I wish to say one word in reference to another
Anti-Slavery Convention in our church. I hope
we shall have one, and have it about the first of
October next, and I hope we shall have at least one
thousand delegates to attend it. I believe, if we
have such a Convention as we may have, its in
fluence will long be felt. 1 he Lord hasten the
day when there shall be no slaves' chains in our

Report op the Select Committku on the
Concurrent Resolutions of the Assembly in
relation to the Right of Petition. The resolu
tions of Mr. Alherton, which were adopted by the
House ot Kcpresentatives ot the United states,
having been discussed in the Assembly of New
York, met their decided disapprobation, which was
expressed, as our readers may reccollect, in sever
al decided resolutions, which were sent to the
Senate for their concurrence. The report of the
Committee of the Senate upon this subject is pub
lished, forming a long document, & enters into the
subject with considerable zeal. The same miscon
ception of the object of the abolitionists pervades
the document which we noticed in the speech of
Mr. Clay. The representation that it is their de
sign to demand emancipation ; to interfere violent
ly with the domestic relations of the south is utter
ly lalse and deceptive. Ihe doctrine that we have
no right to remonstrate respecting an evil of such
enormous magnitude, would annihilate all right to
prosecute any evangelical enterprise.
Without attempting to discuss the merits of the
Report, we cannot but express our great regret,
that any Anierican Senate should have sent forth
an argument so far characterized by sophistry in
its stucture, and low declamation in its language.

" How It strikes a srangek." We happened
to be in one of our public reading-rooms a few
days since, when an intelligent German of this
city came in with his friend who had recently nr
rivedfrom Europe. The latter in looking over a
hie of Georgia papers, and seeing several adver
tisements of men for sale, with the usual prints
accompanying them, turned to his friend and ex
claimed, " is it possible that you sell men in this
country ?" He had fled from despotism and come
here to find a home ot freedom, and an advertise
ment of men for sale, as cattle are advertised in
his native country, was a thing entirely unexpected
and strange. Fcnn. Freeman.
A Good One. Friend Rogers of the " Nigger
Herald," gives us in his last, tho following anec
dote, which we commend to the special attention
of the committee of the legislature on the subject
of the repeal of laws making distinctions among
the people on the ground of color.
We venture an anecdote in relation to Mr.
Forten's (a colored man of Philadelphia) family,
which by the way is said to be one of the most
hospitable in the city. Rev, Mr. Breckepridse
of Baltimore, the same (or his brother) who full
in a duel at Glasgow with the "fugitive" George
Thompson, at tea at Mr. F.'s one evening, dis
puted him on some point of Haylien politics. To
sustain his position, Mr. F. called on his daugh
ter for a document he had received from a corres
pondent at St. Domingo. It was produced & hand
ed to Mr. I. It was in French, and Mr. B. not
being acquainted with that language, Mr. F. direct
ed his daughter to read it to him. She did. Mr.
Breckenridge expressed surprise at her acquaint
ance with the French, but going into a Coloni
zation meeting in the city after tea, he argued the
natural incapacity and inferiority of the colored
people as a reason why they should be sent to Af
rica. Mass. Abolitionist.
Put this and that together. A Van Buren
paper printed at Ilonesdale, Pa., has an article in
its number for March fi, headed " Abolition and
Amalgamation," in which the editor snvs : "If
there is one thing on earth more contemptible than
another, it is the odious doctrine ol our modern
abolitionists to bring into practice the nefarious
project of amalgamation between whites and
blacks. What cross absurdity ! How totally dca
titute of common decency ! ! This subject is so
ilem-mlmo-. we leave it for the present." Well
o O ' i
about one inch from this ebullition of virtuous
horror, stands the following editorial effusion.

amalgamation between whites and blacks as lor
his statesmanship. " Amalgamation1' is something
more than a " doctrine" with the Colonel. He is
a practical man and no theorist. Ibid.
Why the colored people won't consent
" In the early operations of the Colonization Soci
eiy, me auomionisis nau tncir agents in all our
large cities, where the people of color congegate,
and indeed throughout the fcsouthron fctntes, ex
honing the free people of color not to go to Libe
ria." Judge Paine's Address, African Repository,
Vol. XV. p. 45 Thus the Abolitionists, like the
lamb in the fable, were guilty before they were
born. Ihe colonization feociety was organized in
December 1S16 ; hence it had fourteen good solid
years to ship off colored people in, before a single
white abolitionist waked into being, of a sort td put
it into their heads that they were not born in their
"native land. Mass. Abolitionist.
The Difference. " The abolitionist thinks
that an immediate emancipation of the slaves by
their owners would be proper, i he colonization
ist thinks that such a process would be injurious
both to the slaves and the country. Their langua
ge to slaveholders is ; If you will release your
slaves lrom bondage, we will send them to Liberia,
if we can obtain the necessary money." African
Repository, Vol. A V,p. 44b Raine s Address. ib
New Hampshire. As we anticipated, the Ad
ministrationists have suceeded at the recent elec
tion in this State. The party cord was even
strong enough to drag in Charles u. Atherton.
However it may be with black slaves, Ve are con
vinced that " ivhic slaves" are "contented and
happy." Still, we should think they would revolt
at being sold to the South so far away from
home. Mass. Abolitionist.

How to relieve choked Cattle.
It will be recollected by the constant readers of
the lelegraph, that, some months since, John to
nant, of this village, published an article in the
Telegraph, addressed to farmers, making known
a method for relieving cattle, choked with pota
toes, or other substances. 1 he obiect of tins' par
agraph is, to call attention to the subject again, and
to add my own testimony in favor of the remedy.
A few mornings since, one of my cows was chew
ed with a potato. Living but a short distance
from my friend Conant, the author of the article
alluded to, I sent for his assistance, as I had nev
er witnessed the operation. He came with a
quantity of gun powder took about as much as
would be necessary to charge a common fowling
piece two or three times, enclosed it in paper, some
what after the manner of preparing a cartridge-r
and while I held the cow's head up, he, with his
hand, thrust the preparation dawn her throat, as
far as convenient. I held her head up a moment,
until she had broken and swallowed the charge,
which soon produced heaving ; but the first trial
did not succeed. After waitinsr a few minutes,
we repeated the process, which succeeded admira
bly, and the poor, distressed animal was relieved
at once. She raised the potato, chewed and swal
lowed it. Let whoever has occasion, try the ex
periment. Vt. Tclegrdph. '
Potato Soap for Washing. It was discovered
by a French chemist many years ago, that pota
toes, only three parts boiled, make better sonp for
washing than the troublesome, caustic, and ex
pensive article usually made use of by our wash
women, lhey make the clothes cleaner, and
that without injury. Let me give you the result
of the experience of my family, which is a large
The soiled clothes are first soaked in a tub of
water about an hour. They are then transferred
to a copper of hot water, from which they are ta-
cen piece by piece, to be thoroughly rubbed with
the potatoes, the same as with soap. The whole
thus prepared, after having been well rubbed, rol
led, and wrung, are a second time plunged into
the copper, together with a quantity of potatoes in
the above state. After boiling for about half an
hour the linen and clothes are again taken out
turned, thoroughly rubbed all over, and wrung;
and afterwards again thrown into the copper for
some minutes. The clothes are then well rinsed
n clean cold water, and hung up to dry ; the
whole process occupies two hours and a half.
Ihe linen thus washed, is perlectly clean, the
kitchen garments free from all grease, and per
fectly sweet, though in the old way they usually

From the Frontier. Things are in a sad
