VOICE, OF FREEDOM.
TO THE YOUNG.
God hath waked us, youthful friends, from
the darkness of die clod, to a glorious and
- an eternal day. This day of life is indeed
to be succeeded by the night of death, and
the heart that throbbed high with love and
hope i3 again to become pulseless and cold,
(ill the clod, that shall press upon it, will
claim companionship with i I ; but the gloom
of the grave will be dispelled by the dawn
ing of another morning, whose sun will nev
er set. How shall we spend the eternal
years? How are we spending them 1 for
we ore already counting them away, and
giving i hem hack one by one to the ages of
the past. All things which the glorious sun
calls into being, are pressing upward and
outward to the blue, bright sky. The val
ley flower as well as the mountain oak,
- strives to gain a better existence in the sun
ny air. The bird at morn goes up to the
very gates of heaven to catch sweeter notes
lo warble through the 'woodland wild;'
nnd to cheer its mutes, by some new strain
ufAnjel melody. How is it with the hu
man soul ? Does it strive to gain higher
and holier jays as the years pass on? Does
it sigh nt morn and eve and all the long day
for the siuk'isness of heaven's inhabitants ?
v u reuicnoer ...a. it is coming ..sew m i
u garb, uh.cli it will wear fottver; that it is i
weaving lor itself a garland of glory or of!
shame that will be fadeless and changeless j
through the everlasting years? O, to be an j
immortal being To be tuning the harp of
the soul to notes of eternal discord or to
strains of eternal harmony To be singing
songs whose sweet or jarring sounds shall
fall upon the ear forever To be uttering
voices that shall sweep down the v.ile of
years and die not away, till the hills and
groves of eternity shall catch the lays of
time, and sound again its echoes! These
are the things which make life so'e.nn.
We feel that we have within us immortal
longings; desires fjr a higher and happier
state of being j aspirations for a life where
the ear shall hear nothing but melody;
where lire eye shall see nothing- but beauty;
and where the heart shall nt-ver bleed aain,
with its own, or for another's wo. In our
belter moments ne have such desires.
Then cherish them. M.ike the hear: a lem
j le of love lor all the world. L'.'uvj no room
there for hate. Banish from that sacie I
sliri.ie every ui 'ml lowed thought; and you
will feel that it w indeed a blessed thing to
live; that life has more ol sunshine than
of shale, a;:J your upward path will hrijht
en, till yon gain si.j'at ofthe heavenly hill?.

To the Governments of the civili
zed world :
For rnlioruil beings, possessing im
mortal souls, to bo systematically
trained to kill each other, is in itself
so utterly opposed, not only to the
Clnistian religion, but to the dictates
of humanity, that nothing but the
natural depravity of the human heart,
the force of education, and long fam
iliarity with war, can account for the
general prevalence of this monstrous
Under a deep sense of the enor
mous evils which mankind have so
long and so extensively suffered
from the wars which have desolated
the cn i th, this Convention is more
especially impressed with the great
responsibility of those who are in a
position to direct the councils of na
tions, and appeals to them to adopt
the most efiectual measures to pre
vent the continuance of this terrible
scourge ofthe human race.
The Convention is of opinion that
one ofthe greatest securities against
the recurience of international war
line, would bo the recognition of the
principle of arbitration, and the intro
duction of a clause into treaties between
nations, binding themselves to refer
all dilfjrences that may arise, to the
adjudication of one or more friendly
powers; and it earnestly recom
mends the adoption of this practice.
The Convention, in a spirit of j character. Let all the friends of the heath

The Essex County Republican, of
Sept, 16, gives an account of a fire which
broke out the morning before, between
12 and 1 o'clock, in the most flourishing
and wealthy part of Danvehs, Mass, by
which property to the amount of from 75
to 100,000 dollars, was destroyed! The
Reformer states that it is the greatest
conflagation which has occurred in that
vicinity for more than fifty years. Of
the manner fn which the fire caught, re
ports are numerous. The following is
an extract of tho account:
By this heart-saddening Conflagation,
from Twelve to Fifteen families who
wero yesterday in tho possession of
wealth, or a competence, are thrown up
on (he world bereft of nearly nil the

Never did we see such vile transac
tions take place before, on the occasion
of a fire in this vicinity. Never may
we see such again. If we shall, and have
the privilege of speaking to the public of
such vileness, it shall not be with milder
words, but with those the most severe
that language can utter.
Those of ' which ' we have spoken,
(Jrserve no better name than things; for
il they, being situated as they were,
where men were mourning tho loss of
paitners and tho blasting of their pros
pects; and women and children were
shedding bitter tears, and their hearts
were full of sadness for the loss of home
nnd nil its enjoyments, can exult in sa
tanic glee, over thoir deep distress they
cannot claim a more honorable name.
It was but yesterday afternoon, that
we were standing near that beautiful vil
lage, which was the scene of last night's
dreadful work of desolation. Tho sun
was shining most brightly. No clouds
obscured the fair blue sky. All things
about us were pleading to the eve, and
gratifying to Iht! mind In a few bouts
how changed I ho scene!
Night ciimo. The Sun no longer
shod his light. The earth was robed in
darkness. Men, women and children
slept peacefully, and knew not that dan
ger was near. But soon llio flames of
the dcvoni ing element burst furlh from
the mechanics'-place of toil, then from
tho dwellings of happy families, who,
starting in u.Tright from their pleasant
sleep, became conscious of a situation
but little less terrible than that of death;
and saw the sanctuary they were real ing
to the honor of their God, enwrapt with
a mantle of tiro. Then w hat sorrow en
tered their hearts, what prospects were
iibscuied, what hopes were crushed,
they, and they alone, may tell.
T1IS Fit EE iHISSIO.VAIiY.
By the Vermoir U oterver of S-.-p'. 26,
.ve learn that the Executive 13oa:d ofthe
' American nnd Foreign Baptist Mission
ary Society,' have commenced the public
ation of a monthly quarto, bearing the
above title. Tiie first number is mos'ly
ovcuj.iwl with the editorial addresses, over
the signatures of those well known nbo
li ioi i.ts, Cyrus P. Grosvcnor and Chas
V. D. nnison.
We n joice at every evidence that North
ern churches ate freeing themselves from
pulicipuio!) in the guilt of slavery. They
can not, Lu li'efs, continue longer with
the South in taking money which was
obtained by the sale ol human fl.sh and
human blood and human souls, and send
ing it away to the Burmnns to give them
a knowledge of the Bible, which the
heathen at home ask (or in vain. They
f.'el no less interest in the conversion of
the woildtoihe holy and sublime doc
trines of Christianity; but that silver and
gold, the price of a brother's blood, they
fling back to the unholy hands that sacri
legiously dared lo lay it upon God's pure
altar. Missionaries from foreign lands
have sent over the request, that they might
be supported by the pioduce of free labor
only. There is now a Society of this
support. They are no longer obliged to
co operate with those who give to the one
, ... . . .
The two following paragraphs are se
lected from the Address alluded to :
THE TRIENNIAL CONVENTION'.
The painful scenes, not to say disgrace
ful transactions, which occurred at the
last Triennial Convention at Baltimore,
in the spring of 1840, owe their birth to
this enemy. Let ua not be too hasty in
throwing all ol the blame on the South.
There was trouble, and something must
be done. Who can reasonably accuse
the slaveholding portion of that Conyen-
tion of having acted inconsistently with
their avowed belief in the divine origin
of slavery, when they refused to elect
as their agents ofthe Board, ' all known
abolitionists?' A Southern Convention
for the purpose of devising the best means
for removing abolitionists from that nsen-
cy, was a measure imperatively demand
ed by consistency. For, what good rea
son lias over been given why slavehold
crs ought to elect, as their agents
in missionary operations such men as
I the electors knew would never appoint
an auvocato ol slavery to the work of
evangelizing the heathen? Wo know
of none, neither can wo conceive of any.
Whether, however, the law of consisten
cy requires the presence of Northern
men, . especially such as ' hate slavery
even unto wrath,' aiding and abetting
the South in carrying out the principles
of slavery into consistent practice, is not
to us so evident. But it is clear that an
abolitionist, with our present light, could
j not, without abjuring his principles, vole
ior a known nuvocnle ot slavery, as a
member ot that lionrd, though, consti
tutionally, that Board is and must he tho
servant of both tho North and tho South,
to do the bidding of both, if such a thing
is possible. Slaveholders, if their re
spect for slavery is real, ought to see
! that such missionaries be sent into all the
world as will laithtuliy labor lor tho en
couragement of slavery where it exists,
and for its introduction among those hea
then tribes who are yet so blind to the
will of God as not to perceive that he
i would have nil men not only to be saved,
hut also to come to tho Knowledge ol this
as well as every other institution of his
nppoinlment. But will any doubt the
equal right and duty of an abolitionist to
secure, if possible, the choice of such
missionaries as will carry out his views
of the unmeasured sinfulness of slavery ?
Or is tho fact of human freedom or slave
ry too mere a trifle to require the task
ing of ei'.her reason or conscience in rcla
tion to it?
WITHDRAWAL FROM SLAVERY.
Under these circumstances; we have
become solemnly convinced of tho pro
priety of withdrawing from all co-operation
in teligious enterprises with those
churches and men who hold slaves, or
ndvocate the divine right of slavery .
For so doing, we think even the slave
holder will commend our consistency.
We regard, however, the approbation of
uod as of much greater importance to
us than that of all men, and this, we be
lieve, we cnj'iy. If the slaveholder is
so guilty ns we esteem him to be, we
could not do him a greater unkindness
than, by continuing to co-operate with
him in the missionary enterprise, to im
press his mind with the persuasion that,
if we regard him at nil in the wrong, it
is so slight an aberration from duty with
which he is chargeable, that we may in
nocently connive at it, and admit that in
everything essential he is right. That
slaveholders do regard such co-operation
us an act of fellowship, their own avow
als prove; and wa study need nothing
tuo-e to make it certain.
At this point we desire lo have it dis
tinctly understood that this society did
not htivo its origin in nnv ol the doings
of the Board of tho Triennial Conven
tion, either at Baltimore, or before, or
since the session there. Neither m it to
be ascribed to tho fact that that Conven
tion ' left off from the Board all l.nowu
ibol.iiionLits.' Far deeper causes lin
at the beginning and continuance of this
movement. Its necessity consists in tho
principles and sentiments we have ex
pressed and tne (acts we have statul.
A Voice from A.ltli.ioii-l'otiilDUS,
The following resolutions were passed
by the freemen of Addison, Vt. in a town
meeting. Now is the time for all the
towns to circulate petitions, like those
below, and send them on by their Rep
resentatives. No time is to be lost.
Let a voice go foith from the united
branches ofthe State Legislature of Ver

be self-evident; that all men are created,
with certain unalienable rights: that
among theso are life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness.'

The following sad intelligence, wo copy
from the Albany Weekly 1'aliotof Sept.
Wo are called to mourn tho departure
of Luther MrnicK from our world of
toil and strife. " Mourn?" No! The
time to mourn is when a bad man dies
in his iniquities, and ' his blood ' is found
on our skirts! Luther Myrick and tho
tried and faithful ones who receive tffe
command, ' go up higher!' are not last
to humanity, though their common resting-place
is the Unerron. - the upper room
of our common Father's wide dwelling

spirits, sent forth lo minister ' to the wants
and progress of the kingdom of God ?
Luther Myrick'a body rests in Michi

County, on tho 1st ult. It will live again,
when God shall recal 'the spirit and the

A letter to the Editor of the Bangor Ga

The great body of christian people in ihis

as members of the church of Christ, and
welcome to cur communion, those who
voluntarily hold slaves, or acknowledge
the right of doing so."
" Resolved, That to ndmit such minis

spirit of the gospel, and therefore wa can
not do it."
