MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 11. 18.1.1.
THF. PAST AND THE PRESENT.
Six months ago, the Southern Whig press teamed with
abusive articles of Franklin Pierce as having, in ',ie aboli
tion doctrines of his famous "New Boston" speech, fully
come up to thu requirements of the most rabid abolitionists
of the laud. It wjb In vain that we pointed to the rccord oi
his speeches und votes, in which he stood upon the same
platform with John C. Calhoun---thai we cited l''a States
Rights, strict construction course in Congress, and the con
current testimony of the i''0-*1 respectable eat witnesses,
tmd contemporary authority, to the falsity of the abolition re
port of the New Boston *pc?eh--it was in vain thai we
showed the utter absurdity and rottenness ol the charge. -
The Southern Whig Editors preferred to believe in the Ubri
cations of an avowed abolitionist, the celebrated "Paieoii
Foss," und their papers ubounded in Foss and F.-g^ ccrti
ticates, endorsed by Southern Whigs, in the entire unsound
ness ol Franklin. In ruiitmagin<r ov?.r some old papers, a
lew duvs since, we met with u copy of the Washington Re
public of July 31st, 135?, with the names ol "Scott and
Gruham" flying at its masthead. Une ol its leading articles
we transcribe in lull, as follows:
THE PIKRCF. DEVEI.OPK.UENTS IN THE SOU 1 11.
The marked impression th.it has been produced through
out the Soiiiu by the developt niciit ol General Pierce's home
views on slavery, and of the Froe Soil proclivities ol his
New Hatupshite associates and apologists, fully explain
tho unreasoning rage which now distinguishes the columns
o! out Democratic contemporaries. The Gem-raTa friends
have all along assumed that t.is chief strength is to be found
in the South und West; North and East being confessedly
more precarious ground. A lew weeks have sufficed to
change the aspect of tilings, and to demonstrate the vanity
ol Democratic boastings, based upoii no better foundation
than the chances ol popular forgelfulniss. The West refu
ses to ratify Judge Douglas's promise, and repudiates a can
didate who* never neglected an opportunity ol voting against
western interests. The South, too, has been roused from its
partial lull by the revelation of the last few days. It is now
seen that General Pierce is not the eminently conservative
politician which he was at one time supposed to be-that His
reported sentiments fully entitle him to cordial fellowship
with the Van Downs, Preston Kings, Kantouls and At
vvuoJs?und that his nearest and oldest allies have been uni
formly hostile to the South. The South regards the discov
ery as evid neo of a trick, designed to cheat it into the sup
port ol one nominated under circumstances that were at
least suspicious; and every day's mail now brings proofs of
the revulsion ol feeling that is rapidly taking place.
The anger ol the Democratic press is, then, perfectly in
telligi: lo. It is the only form in which the mortilicaiion
occasioned by the baffling ol a deep laid scheme can find
vent.
Alluding to the insufficie ncy of the vage and ubtisive deui
als with which Southern Democratic writers?following the
cue set by their metropolitan leader?hope lo counteract the
frrtecls of recorded facts, the Nashville (Term.) Republican
banner remarks:
" It won't do. They will hate to get rid of these speeches
of General Pterco in some other way. They arc telling like
grape shot at the battle of Buenu Vista. They must be dis
pioVed, or Gen. Pierce's ranks will soon be terribly thinned.
Not mat they show him to b.i an ab ditionist, but that they
show him to be very dillerent from what he has been repre
sented in the Soutb?a man cherishing feelings and senti
ments in his heart which,when it is remembered that he was j
asked if he would veto the Fugitive Slave Law, and vu> i
silent ? when it is remembered that he was the only one of!
the distinguished Democrats to whom the question was put ;
who did not answer or had not answered the question -when
it is remembered that all tnose who answered were prompt
ly killed off, and he, before scarcity thought of by the /icopie,
tr(it nominated, arul is note supported by alt the long train
of Abolition and Freesoil leaders ire have named in tUe Sorth,
? we say, they show him to be a nun cherishing sentiments
which, when these things ure remembered, may justly be re
girded with distrust should ever a crisis come when fanati
cal excitement In the North shall threaten to sweep away
tin Fugitive Slave Law."
If the above highlalutin strains were amusing at the time
of thiir publication, they arc infinitely more so at the pre
sent moment, after the overwhelming verdict of the popular
vote. Not only did the W< st, the North and the Eu.-t do their |
whole duty, but thegaiiant South, generously rebuking the
insult upon herself and the injustl'-e to one of h-?r ear
liest, steadiest ami ablest champions, came nobly to the res
ell'"- and *ffi?ed her bright seal of endorsement to the name
of Franklin Pierco. His enemies and traducers were lev
elled to the ground, and he was placed In the riK'Fl honora
ble position In the world. That he has done his whole duty
and put his revilers to the blush, we need only refer for prttol
to the following b...d. frank, beautifully expressed sentiments j
of his Inaugural Message. Upon this Southern question, j
particularly, ho has silenced the giumblings of his Southern |
opponents and has i stoned the most unqualified approba-j
tion ol many of their leading organs We can do n.? belter |
servicc to the country than by keeping* these noble anJ tliril- :
llngly eloquent passages, "before the people " They deaeive
10 be written in letters of gold and suspended in the Capitol
ot every State. There is a sound mora! in this falsification
of Whig fabrications, in this glorious realization of Demo
crt*tio promises. It should serve to place the .Southern peo
pie, and patriots every where, c.n their guard agair.st Whig
boas'.mge and misiiprestntations, and assure the country
that the ouly safety to our institutions is in the as.-etidenry
of Democratic doctrines and agent?. Let the people con
trast the above article from the Republic with the following
noble presages of President Pierce's Inaugural, and they
cannot hesitate fully to agreo with us :
"The dangers of a concentration ol all power in the Ge
neral Governimnt of a confederacy so vest up ours, are
too obvious to be disregarded. You have a right, there
lure, to expect your agents, in every department, to re
gard strictly the limits imposed upon them by the constitu
tion of the United Sia'es. The great nclieme of our consti
tutional liberty rests upon a proper distribution ol power be
tween the State and federal authorities; and experience has
vhnwn, that the harmony and happiness of our people must
depend upon a just discrimination between the separate
rights and responsibilities of the States, and your common
riuhis and obligations under the General Government. An?1
here, in my opinion, are the considerations, which should
form the true basis ol luiure concord in regard to the ques
tion*, which have most seriously disturbed public tranquili
ty. If the Federal Government will confine itself to the ex
ireit: qf powers clearly granted by the Constitution, it can
hardly happen that its action upon any question should en
danger the institutions of the .States, or interfere with their
cmh! to manage mutters strictly domestic according to the
itill of their oicn peojile
"In expressing Briefly my views upon an important Hub
jeit,which lias recently agitated the nution to almost a learlul
legrec. I am moved by no other impulse than a most earnest
Joire (or the perpetuation of that Union, which has maJe us
what wo are, ehowerinz upon us blessings, and conferring a
power and influence, which our fathers could h.irly have anti
cipated, ( ven ?ilh their most sanguine hopes directed to a lar
011 future The sentiments I now announce were not tin

The biennial sessions of the Legislature will liereuttcr
throw upon 'he Hoard u high responsibility, and if their

and others who will no doubt add largely to the list, lenders
a call of this kind a matter of (lie first importance, in all

made in tills division, the greatest number of worki i:

and every principle by which appropriations have been made
it is not a thing to be deprecated, however, that a large num

rather loilunate that it is so; and the writer feel- no scruple
in presenting the name of u gentleman whose lone public
Servkv ill the General Assembly, and whose uniform spirit
in regard to the improvement of ilic State, points htm out
a-i well qualified in eveiy respect for discharging '.hu duties

lion nmon<? the slaves than they imagine, or thin uiti b
well lor the peace an 1 .-ifety ot 111:.- co uruuniiy. Slaves
?ire hard to govern at host, and when sided with by white
ptrsons, from whatever motives or purposes, they become
entire ly unruly and will be certain to go to extreme.". Mark
the truth of what we say.
Had the negroes been left where tho action of the white
church placed them, tnov w-oul I soon have been propel ly
'tumbled, and made penitent supplicants at the d-or of r11
white church for admission a/jam, which would doubtless
have been readiiy granted.

The object i have in view is to secure lor the African Cap- j

1st. They must have a hou*e. The present one will soon
fall in upon them, if something is not done.
'2d. If those who own servants should aid in building
them a house of Worship, It would secure to their masters !
greater attachment and more fidelity, from 1 he highest possi-1

W lu-reas, the Bintist Church 01 Lynchburg met on the
l'l.h oi March. 1352, and adopted an act separating the ? hite
church iroin the colored chuich, under certain provisions
ami restrictions.
And whereas, the colored church accepted cheerfully 0/
said act, with its provisions and restriction, and have Lien
organized under these provisions according to the usage o!
slit? Uapti.si denomination, and the requirements in the arti
cletit separation, into the African Baptist Church of Lynch
burg, by a presbytery of Baptist Ministers called together
lor that purpose.
And whereas said Baptist church did, at a subsequent
Hireling, without complaint or forfeiture of any of the arti
cles i)f scparalion, and without notice of ;iu*ir intention,
[ pass rcsoluiions, which, if carried out. are calculated to dis

VN..?> 1 here not In these instances a very macifust interfer
ence an I interest' und that, too, oj a body'
Ag::in : That portion ot the report which rclera to the ori
ginal organization of the African Church, does nut accord
with the lacis in the cage. She was organized upon the
principles laid down in the constitution of the African j
Church in Richmond, which was cent lor, and had at tlio
time. Their original constitution placed the discipline of the {
African Church in tlio hands of ten colored Deacon*; whose
action was to be under the supervision of a committee ap
pointed by tin. white church.
The partial independence which is alluded to in ihc report,
as granted by the Baptist Church '-in a spirit ot indulgence
towards her members," was given for the purpose of heal
ing a schism know n to exist in the white church among the
white members, as may be lound by reference to individuals
as- well as to the records of the church.
1'hat part of the report of the committee which says "from
this time," that is from the 10th ot March, 1552, "diffieul
tics began to ari6c," &c., ought to be altered or stricken
out, because it makes a false impression on the public mind
ami on the mind of the Council. It represent* difficulties
as originating in the act of the 10th March, 1S52; w hereas
they are known to have oxisted long before. And 1 am
sure that it cannot be lound, cither by witness or record to
be true, that any collision has ever occurred, in which the
African Church, us a body, has set at defiance any act of the
white church.
The report states that the supervisory committee of ten
had to be reduced to five, ''in consequence of difficulty in
procuring suitable persons willing to serve." Fact does not
-u-inm the assertion. The reduction was made, when a new
arrangement was instituted tor the government of the Afri
can Church. By that new airangement, the committee was
vested with no power ol government whatsoever; and its
number was reduced because its duties were made ler-s res
ponsible. Besides, the term of the committee's service was
Drought down from 12 months to 3; so that, in fact, under
the new arrangement, twice as many persona would serve
upon the committee in the course of a year as served under
previous arrangements.
The report is erroneous, too, in representing that the ex
communication of the African Church was un alternative
resorted to because it was found "impossible to secure the
services ol five competent persons to act as a committee."
The preamble to the vole of excommunication makes no
statement to this elleet. The Church rented not h< r action
on any t-unh ground. When the appointment ol the com
inittce came up beforo the t'liurch, the brethren who rcprc
1 ot the Church as "baund by pledge to take the t xclusivc
cor tr.-l and supervision of the African Church," in forfei
ture of thai pledge avowed a determination not to act them
selves , and not to vote for others to act! 1 have no doubt that
tiveor twice five competent persons could have been ob
tained to serve; five or iw ice five whom the Church, by ap
pointment 011 previous committees, had herselt declared to
on competent.
Again : The report creates the Impression that the Uaptis!
Church, placed in the hands of the Mayor a written state
ment <>f the facts in the case. This impression is altogether
baseless. A paper purporting to be a statement of the lads
iii ilit! caw was placed in the Mayor's hinds by certain
members ol the Baptist Church; but not under the instruc
tion, or by the authority of tliut Cliurch. It was the un
authorized act of individual?; an act, therefore, for which
tin- Baptist Church should not bo censured.
Aiia n ? The sentence "the committee having been twice
locked out of the church by the colored sexton" is ambiguous,
it may mean either thai he did not open the Church ni all si
that timt; or, thai he and the colored people were within and
refused admittance to the while committee. 1 observe thai
the K 1 itor seems to give ii the latter construction. This is
i Mlse construction. The (act is, there was no one in the j
Church at the lime. The African Church has never held o
meeting unattended by while persons,who called ihe meeting,
an-l held themselves responsible for it 10 the community.?
But as to ihe locking out!" The true state of the case is as
tollows: The supervisory committee was appointed simply
an>/ o:dy to attend the meetings of the African Church for
the transaction of bus nes* And, on the uuihoriiy ol Bri>.
Jos I! tXowiin, chairman of the committee, 1 stale that, on
every Lord's IKiy afternoon; set ay-art for the transaction of
business, the committee attended the African Church and
found the doora open', is there here any "refusal to be con
rolled?" any "disorganizing conduct" whatsoever'? At that
time the A'lie.ni Cliurch was without a pastor; and held no
iiii i tin^s i..: worship on this account.
We now e .in to ilit- doting .-liltioeri' of the report, that
t' e dangerous dogma had been asserted in tint Church, tliat
oh di n. e is due to the Church in preference to the Master"
The '?<<:<?' in ihe case, so far as 1 remember iliein, are these:
In islo. Jack Ave re 11 was brought to trial b- lore the deacons
of ilit* Allien Church, and the vvlit-, committee for "join" to
Tli-. it re. 11: ? pi -a wa- tint lie wa.- sent t<) -ins master with the
his inas'ei's < liihSren. dome ol ilie white committee ar
gued iuJick's behalf that if they exchRtcd him lie would be
I .\eluded for obeying his mas'er. For it.is lie j- did not ex
clude him. But upon further investigation invas in proof
that lie was loiind ai ihe Theatre without his master's child
ren. li>' was thought, therefore, to love the Theatre, and
hence was ox eluded. Ii lias been now four or live years
since this occurrence; but it is :ny candid eonviction. and
has been all along that he utt<? i-xeluded for going to the
Theatn: without the direction of hla master. Had the "dan
gcrous dogma" pi> vailed in ihe Afiican church, it was the
duty of ihe whitr . hurch timi to have aeted with /irmr.ptnean
and tirmncii .' Arid 1 will do the white church the justice to
&ay that, if she had known -t even suspected the prevalence
ol such a dogma in the Afiinar. cliurch at any time prior to
the excommunication, ! believe that she would have been
swilt to rebuke and exact in punishing it .' I will further
say, injustice to the white church, that, if, at the time of
the excommunication, she had regarded such a dogma as
prevailing in the African church, 1 believe ihai her censures
would have been vigorously directed against it. Hut she has
maintained silence on this point. She has preferred no such
charge. Is it not fair, then, to conclude that she has not
given credit to the accusation 1
i hope sincerely that the Council will brin^ to light those
rebellious declaration i which ilia lonwiitu e. refrain from re
porting, tin: their authors may be feruled out and meet
with due punishment. Far be it from me, and irom a!l my
fellow citizens, to cover up wrong ot this kind!
My remarks have already gone beyond the limits pro
scribed fi>r myself; but there nre one or two points upon
which you must sutler me to speak. I shall do so briefly
First: In permitting the African Church, under certain
restrictions, to transact business, the Lynchburg Kaptist
Cliurcn ha-- only followed the usage of the denomination.?
Where large numbers of slaves protcss our views, it has j
been found neccssary to grant them ?e|)<?rnl? organizations, j
Such is the cise in Richmond ? in Petersburg?in Norfolk 1
?in William-:?urg?in Charles City county. In none of
ihe.-e instances has it been found necessary for th- civil au
thorities to interfere; and ihey have interfered in none. As
a denomination, Baptists claim the right to regulate their
own internal policy; and where they violate no law shall
this right be denied them 7
Secondly: It is not the intention of myself or of any
other Baptists who dissent from the action ol the white
Church here, lo authorise "independent gatherings'' of the
African Church. Since her excommunication, she has not
assumed for herself power to transact business". We have
not assumed it for her. Her members, wiih other slaves,
have met only as a congregation for worship; they have held
no meeting, as a Churen, lor business. The African Church
belongs to the Strawberry Association, which is composed
sf the pastors and delegates of 3(J Baptist Churches in ad
joining counties. That Association has ecclesiastically
power to decide whether the African Church shall continue
in existence; and, If so, what denominational restrictions
ahull be imposed upon it. Whatever the decision may be, I
am sure that the African Church will cheerfully submit to
it. And I am no less sure that its decision will leave no just
around of complaint to this community. Meanwhile, and
until that Association convenes, the Trustees of the African
Church (whose names have appeared above) pledge them
3< ;vs personally to see that in all meetings for worship in
sn'.l Church, law shall be faithfully obeyed and the strictest
or !er observed. May not ihe community safely repose con
fid nee in such men7 JAS. C. CLOPTON.

In;? three distinct case? doi'ced, Mr. Keniiail proposed to thk.?
up the case of John Charles Gardiner first, which was ob
jected tn on the ground ihi t they were not ready for this
cisc, ami that it was oniy accessory to that of Ge.irge \
Gardiner. The court decided that u?e ca<u of Geotur A
Gardiner must first be tried, and the jury was empanneiled
Mr. May opened the case by referring to it? vast impur
inncp arid characterizing it as the boldest and most 6ucctas
ful fraud ever practised, and mated that the prosecution ex
pected to provo sill the averments of Dr. Gardiner n iauve to
his alleged mines to be ful.se. The issue was upon the truth
or falsity of his assertion, and the Gov. rnmuit . xpectcd Co
prove that nil of them were fictitious an 1 that Gardiner had
received an the Irinis of his fraud 5426,750. The case will
be continued to-niorruw.
In the absence of Gen Case, against whom the thuriJei
ot the e.x Secretary [CIaytoii'sj eloquence was especially d.
reeitd, Judge D .uglns ventured a reply. Of n>o speech
the distinguished Senator from Illinois, it !- sufficient to s-a>
that it was a triumphant refutation ot the specious sophirir>
and ingenious nnsrepn teniation ol the ex-chirtof the Gsi
plim cabinet. The Senate chamber was thronged durins
the delivery of Judge Douglas's speech, and the laughter sr. i
aearcely-suppressi d applause of the audience tcld plainly
enough the ellect of its adrniiahlo "hits " The contortions
and '? interruptions" of the Senaut from Delaware showed
'lie sulierings of the victim. The debate was the most ar.i
mated and exciting of tho session, and the speech of Judge
Doiigl is, in force and effect, was perhaps superior to the bes.
