T II 13 VOICE OF FREEDOM.
neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise and pervert the words of the righteous. That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou may est live and inherit the land, which the Lord thy God givelh thee." Deut. 16,18. He that ruleth over man must be just, ruling in tho fear of God." 2 Sam. 23, 8. Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake", whether it be to the king, as supreme, unto governors, or unto them that are sent by him for the punish ment of evil doers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well-doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. As free, and not using your liberty as a clock of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honor all 'men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the King. I Pt. 2, 13 &c. "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers: for there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the pow er, resisteth the ordinance of God, and they that resist hall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same. For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject not onlv for wrath, but also for conscience sake." Horn. 13, When Christ appeared and set up his-visible kingdom in the world, he clothed the church with certain delega- ted powers, which she has an undoubted right to exercise But these powers never can interfere withthe powers gran ted to parents and magistrates. Wicked rulers may op' press the church. And ambitious churchmen may attempt to rule the state as well as che hurch. 8ut such rulers and churchmen do not act ander the authority, which God has delegated. They are usurpers, and invade the rights of God, as well as the rights of men. Christ did admit, that he was king. And he said unto liia disciples, "I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Fa ther hath appointed unto me." Luke 23, 29. But he says "My kingdom is not of this world." John 16, 36. And the power, which he delegated, was suited to the nature of his kingdom. ' Go ye therefore, and teach all nations baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded you; and Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of tho world." Mat 23, 19, 20. "Then they that gladly received his 'word were baptised," and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls." Act 2, 41. "And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to tho Lord, on whom they believed." Acts 14, 23. "Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and toll him his fault between thee and him alone: if ho shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then tal e with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be es tablished. And if he shall neglect to hear them, toll it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. Ver ily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven." Mat. 18, 15, 16, Here the whole process is of a moral nature, requires no civil aid, and interferes with no legitimate government, And no civil authority has any right to interfere wi;h the government of Christ's kingdom. And when they pre sume to do it, they usurp his authority, and forfeit the power delegated to them. In -such cases the Christian must consider the authority of Christ as supreme: must obey . God rather than man. It is then evident, that civil government is an ordinance of God, and that parents and rulers have a full and perfect right to exercise the power, which has been delegated to them. And children and subjects are bound, by the au thority of God himself to honor and obey those, whom God has placed over them, while they exercise the power, which God has delegated to them. And those, who will not do this, resist the ordinance of God, and must fall tinder his condemnation. Rom. 13, 2. Happy would it be if this divine ordinance were sacredly regarded in our land, and the spirit of mobs subdued by the authority of God. K. B. " Woes cluster; ".They tread on each, other's heels." The editor of the Vergennes Vertnonter, bur dened with complaints, like unto those of our quondam friend of the Mercury is out upon us, in his last number. There is this trifling differ ence, however, in the bills of indictment filed by the aforesaid complainants to wit : in the eyes of the Woodstock man, our malfeasance consists in passing by, Levite like, on the other siJe of a col onizationist whereas the Vergennes editor sets up his claim to be considered " a calm but firm abo litionist," and is, withal, an opponent of the colo nization humbug But in Loth cases, it is agreed that they have, in consequence of our sins of omission, loit a paltry fee. These gentlemen of the green bag seem to suppose that since " laws are; made for the disobedient," they have .an unquestionable claim to " take the benefit of rthe acts." Bo patient, gentlemen.

The National Whig Convention for the nomin ation of Candidates for President and Vice Presi dent, was to have been held at Hnrrisburgh, on Wednesday last. K7Prof. TaylorLccture on Common Schools will be delivered in this village on Thursday, the 12th inst. We repeat our invitation to all the friends of popular education, to do themselves the favor to attend. For the Voice of Freedom. Mr. Editor, It is with pleasure, that I notice tho following resolutions introduced by Elder Whitchcr, and passed by the anti-slavery con ation, held at Warsaw, N. Y. Nov. 13th, 1839, reported in the American Citizen. "Kesolved, That we recognize with gratitude to God, the manifest hand of his providence in ihejjdecided and Christian action on the character j of American Slavery, and the duty of Christian communities in regard toil, adopted by the Tenth General Conference of the Free Will Baplist Convention at their session recently held at Con- neaut, Ohio. Resolved, That this convention confidently an ticipate the speedy arrival of that day, when this bright example of christian principle and duty, shajlbe imitated by all the Christian communities in our land, when by all of them slaveholding shall be exterminated from their sacred enclosures, and branded as a system of incurable fraud, robbery, licentiousness, infidelity, and heathenism, The Freewill Baptists have taken a noble stand in relation to slavery. And it is cheering to find that in their General Conference they have clear ed their skirts of the sin of slavery by disfellowship. ping any member guilty thereof. This looks like an honest testimony against sin. And is much more honorable, than the mean skulking away from res ponsibility, which has become so fashionable in these days of declension, when more is done to please men than God. Would all our Conven tions and ecclesiastical bodies boldly speak out against slavery, and refuse to hold fellowship with slaveholders, it would have a powerful effect. They would be ashamed, and repent, or the church would be purged from such foul pollution, and be no longer disgraced by holding fellowship with a complication of all villanies. "Come out from her my people that ye partake not of her plagues." Honesty is letter than expediency. An Old Man. Official Impudence. We desire no better proof of the general truth of all that has been re ported of the notorious Consul Trist, of Havana, than the following extract of a letter written by him to a correspondent at New Orleans, and published in some of the papers in that city. We c!o not know that we ever read any thing from any office-holder, accused of high crimes and misdemeanors, so grossly ir.solent. Mer. Jour. ' With regard to the newspapers, the only con cern ihcy give me is through my friends. As for the thing itself, and its direct bearing upon me, they might howl or bray ad libitum from one end of the year to the other, and the subject would be one of just as much interest to me as the croaking of the crapaux in any given marais of Louisana, 1000 miles off. But my friends and the public are entitled to hear some truth in the midst of all this lying, and they shall have it, but they must be patient. My friends must rest satisfied witJi the assurance which I give them, that they could not wish tor me a prouder distinction than that which awaits me. If you were to set your imag ination to work to devise all the shapes which lalsehood could assume towards a man in my po sition, you would not count up half the heads of the Hydra now hissing at me, and which it has been given to me to exterminate. I wish vou could see, were it ever so partially, the club that 1 have got. .1 have a number of issues to make before the American people ; and those who have compelled me lo make them, will be sicker of the undertaking than ever they were of any thing in their lives belore. Abolition in France. The following is a summary of the Keport of M. Tocqueville, in the name of the commission charged with examining the question oi the abolition of slavery. J. he Ivenort passes lightly and contemptuously over the arguments in favor of slavery, and takes ior granted the conviction in every mind that it ought to be done away with. It passes immedi ately to the question ot its being necessary to pre pare the slave for emancipation, previously to lib erating him. M. Tocqueville, in the' name of the commission, asserts that all attempts to improve, enlighten, and prepare the slave, so lone as lie is a slave, are impossible. 1 he slave not only is ig- norant of marriage, of the sacredness and morali ty of that tie, but incapable of being made to ap preciate it, as long as he is a slave. There is an tipathy between marriage and slavery between slavery and the paternity which accompanies mar riage : the f lave s children are his equals are independent of him, and excite r.o interest. None )f the prudence and paternity accompanies it in the slave. Christianity is equally incompatible with slavery equally unintelligible. The min ister of religion appears either as a support of the master's rule, and is thus abhorred ; or he preach es the doctrine of Christian freedom, dangerous to the master. The commission therefore abandons the idea of preparing the slave for freeedom by any regulations for his treatment whilst a slave. Emancipation, it adds, cannot be deferred. The prospect of it, the idea of its arrival at no distant time, render the slave incapable oftrannuil obedi ence and good conduct as a slave. lie is in a talse position. 1 he master tan no longer restrain him, especially at night. ' The colonists,' writes the Governor of Martinique in the present year, ' dare not rear cattle such is the fear and preva lence of poison. The slaves use poison as a means of vengeance vhen restrained; and no vigilance can guard against it.' The necessitv of emancipation being established, there are two modes of decreeing it it may be either gradual or immediate. The commission is of opinion that the ?imultarieous or immediate emancipation has less inconvenience than tho gradual.lt thinks that the English Government was wrong in pay ing at once the whole of the indemnity to the col onists, instead of advancing portions, and retain ing some check upon them. In admitting that tome ot the censure passed on the apprenticeship is well founuVd, nevertheless the commission thinks that apprenticeship must be emploped : and that for some time the negroes, however possessed of the essential qualities ot lreedom, must be forced to work. But it is not the master who can pre serve or exercise the right to force the emancipa ed negroo to work ; it must be the state, or, in its name, the magistrate. This intermediate state ought to be applied to the education of the youm,-, as well as to tha labor of the middle-aged. This labor is not to be gratuitous. Of the 250, 000 slaves in tho colonies, but two-thirds are from 14 to 60 years ofage, and capable of work. Cal culations would lend us to believe ' that in de manding a moderate salary for these 166,000, the state might not only cover the expense of the in demnity, and create a fund for sinking the capital, but devote each day n portion of his salary to the negroe.' The latter would have Saturday to himself, & a spot of ground. The proprietor would take the, children apprentices till they were one and twenty. The commission proposes that, in the session of 18-11, a law for the abolition of slavery shall be presented, determining the amount of the indem nity which is to be saved to the stale by means of the salary of our emancipated negroes the labor of the latter to be secured by an express law. Piety should be Ciieeiiful. Children should not be employed in studies above their years, or in irksome tasks. The joyous freshness of their young natures should be preserved while they learn the duties that fit them for this lite and the next. Wipe away their tears. Remember how hurtful are the Iieavy rnins on the tender blos soms just opening on the day. Cherish iheir smiles. Let them learn to draw happiness from all surrounding objeets, since there miy be some mixture of happiness in every thing but sin. Ii was once said of a beautiful woman, that from her childhood she had ever spoke smiling, as if the heart poured joy from the lips, and they turned it into beauty. May I be forgiven for so repeatedly pressing on mothers to wear the lineaments of cheerfulnes! ? " To be good and disagreeable is high treason against the royalty of virtue," said a correct mor alist. How much is it to be deprecated, when piety, the only fountain for true happiness, fails of making that joy visible to the eye ! If happi ness is melody of soul, the concord of our feelings with the circumstances of our lot, the harmony of the whole being with the will of our Creator, how desirable that this raelody should produce the re sponse of sweet tones and smiling countenance, that even slight observers may be won by the charm of its external symbols ?Mrs. Sigourney.

" Any person wha fhall malicious ly dismember or deprive a slave of life, shall suf fer such punishment as would be inflicted in case the like offence had been committed on a free white person and on like proof ; except in case of insurrection of such slave, and unless such death should happen by accident, in giving such slave moderate correction.

Stroud's Sketch of Slave Laws, p. wj. West India Emancipation. The safety of emancipation in the case of the West Indies is now on nil hands admitted. The Commercial AdveiKser of Wednesday, published a letter from Barbadoes, from which the following is an ex tract : " Our conversation was occupied entirely with the past and present situation of the island, to gether with the results of emancipation. Three gentlemen in the room were residents on the is land; and reflected much, and were possessed of ample means of information. They all unhesi tatingly declared, in answer to my inquiries, thai the planters, as a body, preferred the present state of things to the old system oj slavery; that on this subjsct there existed wonderful unanimity ; as to personal feeling and pecuniary interest than when slavery existed ; that if nil things could be put back as they were, few or no votes could be obtained for such a measure. They also stated one fact, winch, of ltselt settles the (lues tion as lo the pecuniary benefit of emancipation. The price of real estate h:s rapidly and grcatlv increased since the emancipation of the slaves This fact, alone, independently of all reosonin. and of all minor objections which may be drawn from the misconduct of a portion of the negroo establishes with absolute certainty the coot re sults of that great measure. 1 his rise of real es tate was not the consequence of any speculation in building lots and wild lands ; plantations under cultivation, and whose value consisted exclusive ly in their cultivation and crops, were the sole ob. jects of this increased price. There must be in dustry, good crops, and security for life and prop erty, wheie land devoted to agricultural purposes is rising in value. No law of nature is more certain. These gentlemen frankly staled, that on some plantations inconveniences had ensued from the frickleness ond idleness of the negroes, from their desire for excessive wages, from their fre quent changes of residence. But such inconven iences are not peculiar to this island, or to the present state of society. All communities expe rience such evils lo some extent, from the habit of the laboring classes. Indeed, thcro are few countries which have not occasionally suffered far greater locs, and even damages from similar causes. From the Pennsylvania Freeman, CTThe Torronto U. C. Press contains the fol lowing advertisement, which our readers will read ily understand, to refer to the " White Lady Fugi tive." The passages marked as quotations, are from the advertisement ot her professed owner J. Davenport, Syracuse N. Y., which has been cop ied into, the " Freeman." FOUND ! Found on the Canadian Shore, a young wo man, who says her name is Harriet Powell ; a boijt 24 years ofage, " she is cf a full and well proportioned form, about five feet three inches high ; beautiful, straight, light brown hair, dark eyes approaching to black, of fresh complexion, and so fair that she would be taken for a hand some white woman, yet to a critical observer, the prominent mouth, depressed nostrils, and receding lorehead, betray the leading traits of the African race." " Her demeanor is very quiet, and her deport ment modest." When found, her head dress consisted of a Free dom's Bonnet and a Liberty Cap, with a frock of Victoria plaid ; she has JMermo, Muslin, and oth er dresses; " she wears small rings, with stones, in her ears, and on her fingers, three chaste gold rings, two of which are set with green, and the other with transparent crystals." From her admission and style cf dress, I sup pose she came from the seraglio of some " Pa triarch" or that she broke loose from " the do mestic Institution," " sundering the most endear ing ties." She is "plunged in sorrow at the separation of an aged mother and bister;" and it adds intensity to her feelings, that she knows not where they are, or what may become of them, and strange lo tell she positively declares she never had any legal father. The subscriber wants to know in what part of the world fhe could have been born ? It may be proper to add, that since she flew to him for refuge, "that her conduct and moral deport ment have, hitherto, been irreproachable;" ;ind that this notice is published with the hope that it may be the means of her mother and sister know ing where she may be found. Any person con veying the information to them shall receive a re ward of $'2C0, and a further reward of 2.500, when the mother and sister are personally introdu ced to her. I hope this notice will procure tidings concern ing her mother and sister, as Harriet must btr known to many persons, having travelled consid erable. She says " the last prt she hailed from was Davenport." ? JOHN BULL. Canada, Jubilee 12th, 1639. FALL & WINTER G0QDS.
