x lie to this place of entertainment It is de
signed solely lor ladies and gentlemen, and no
*mu.«etnents sre prsctised there, which are unfit for
toe observa ion of ladies. It does not become him
to speak of the dinners which he can furnish at the
shortest notice, though he has at all times, all the
luxuries that the Richmond market and the country
round the city can afford; nor of his wines, though
be challenges comparison with any cellar in Vir
ginia ; nor of the recreations and amusements which
jhis guests will tind tbeie. though they areasnumer
rus as they are innocent; no - of the accommoda
tions, natural and artificial, which th» Retreat at
fords. All ne wishes is, that th*> public will come
and see, and if they do not say, that it is the very
place the town has always wanted, and situated at
the very distance at which it ought to be situated,
he will be willing to acknowledge that he has de
ceived himse.f, and thereby cheated others. It is
at the proper distance, tor it is three miles from
t< wr.; it is in the proper situation, for it is on the
Brooke Turnpike, a Sue carriage road, it is proper
ly fixed, for the rooms are on the most approved
m.dern scale for convenience, and fitted with a
luxury almost unknown in tbe country. But my
description can satisfy no body. Come and see for
yourselves.

THE DAILY DISPATCH.
SUBSTANCE OF A SERMON,
Delivered at the African Church, Julw 25th,
1852, by the Pastor,
Ret. Robert Rtusd.
Thoa Shalt not Kill -Exodcs 20: 13.
The thought has sometime occurred to me
that j ought to preach a sermon against tbe
crime of murder. Again it has seemed to be
needless. It might even be regarded as an in
aigntty to the congregation to discuss at large
such a topic. And besides, those persons who
hnniU'L- 8 ?. 6 j crimeß ,re rar * l y f °und »n the
»nd the truth would fail to be
' for wh °m •« was intended Recent
, • J. " a *e convinced me, however, thut these
.-J ns #r e futile, and that duty requires me
linn «r UCe "object to your solemn atten-
H.n . DCe ?- e la,t weembled within these
walls to worßhip Almighty God, a most delib
erate and atrocious murder has been inflicted
?i? 1" I ! nn(Ms l e,lt > unsuspecting family—within
the hallowed precincts of their own chamber—
and in a manner tbe most cruel and revolting
that can be conceived. I blush to add that this
horrible deed was committed by members or a
member of this church! In addition to the
ordinary grounds of sorrow—such as tbe loss
to society of esteemed citizens—the value of
human life—and the rupture of the sacred ties
of kindred und friendship, there are some pe
culiar reasons why you should deplore tbe
occurrence of this tragic event.
It will excite strong prejudices against this
church, and tend to endanger your religious
privileges. There are many wurm friends to
your spiritual improvement in this communi
ty. Persons of kind and conscientious feelings
of every creed and of no creed, often ask me
concerning your behavior in the house of wor
ship, and show an interest in your highest
happiness. /It is not to be denied that there
are others who look with suspicion on your
separate organization, and who would not re
gret to see it wholly destroyed, and your in
struction confined to the very small 1 number
who could crowd into the side galleries of the
city churches. Now every ease of crime com
mitted by the members of this chureh—how
ever orderly the greut body of them muy be—
tends to coufirm this prejudice and to disturb
your quiet and delightful worship.
It will increase (he strictness of discipline
to which you are subject in the family, in the
factory, on the farm—from the City Police and
from the State authorities. It is a well un
derstood maxim that the growth of vice aug
ments the rigor of law—that refractory subjects
cause rulers to be more exacting. I give you
all warning, theiefore, that in your respective
spheres of life you will have to be more obedi
ent and submissive for the future than you
have ever been heretofore, or else you will
bring upon yourselves serious troubles. God
has given this country to the white people.—
They are the luw-makers—the masters—the
superiors. The people of color are the sub
jects—the servants—and even when not in
bondage, the inferiors. In this state of things,
God enjoins on vou submission'. The Apostle
Paul teaches Trtus to "exhort servants ta be
obedient to their own inastersyand to please
them well in all things, not answering again,
not purloining,(stealing,) but showing all good
fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of
God our Saviour in all things." To i'iuiothy
he says, "Let as many servants as are under
the yoke count their own masters worthy of
all honor, that the name of God and hi» doc
trine be not blasphemed. And they that bave
believing masters* let them not despise them,
i because they are brethren, tint rather do their
service, because they are faithful and beloved;
partakers of the benefit. These things teuch
and eahort. If auy man teach otherwise, and
consent rot to wnolesome words, even the
words of our Lord Jesus Christ, sad to the
doctriae which is according to Godliness, he
is preud, knowing nothing, but dooming (,i. e.
making himself a fool), about questions and
strifes of words, whereof Cometh every strife,
railings, evil surmisings, perverse disputings
of men of corrupt minds, aad destitute of the
truth, supposing thai gain is godliness—from
such withdraw thyself." So Paul taught his
sons Timothy and Titus to preaeh—and so he
leaches me to preach. But suppose the Bible
were silent on the subject, would not rens&u
point out the same course as most conducive
to your nafety. ami happiuen*' Li every coun
try where there are distinct classes and grades
of society, if a conflict arises between the
strong and the weak, do yuu not kntu» that
; the weak must- be overpowered?' 1b it uot then
the wisest policy (if there were no principle
involved) to avoid such a conflict by suhinis
' sion, rather than to provoke the conflict and to
be crushed? While, therefore, it is the duly
of other ministers to inculcate kindness ami
forbearance on the masters, it is my duly—

your instruction—to urge you to know and to
keejf tfour on u place—the plaett of tubmisaium.
Bur you say.'Wlr. K. is prt aching now lor the
good of the white people." No! lam preach

that my counsel to you win, if followed, prove
beneficial to the whites, but this a collateral—
an incidental benefit My primary object is
your temporal and eternal good. And they

what Scripture and reason both teach, that
your only safety and happiness consist in be

Let ua proceed now to the consideration of
the text—" Thou shall «al Kill. This is one
of the great radical commuuds ol God—one ot
the fundamental precepts ol morality, it wus
given lo Moses by the Almighty under the most
impressive circumstances. "And it came lo
pass ou the third day iu the inoruing that there
were thunders and lightnings und a thick cloud
upon the mount, und the voice of ths trumpet
exceeding loud, so that all the. people that wus
in the eauip trembled. And Moses brought
forth the people uut of the camp to meet with
God, and they stood at the nether (lower) part
of the mount. And Mount Sinai waa altogeth
er ou a smoke, because the Lord desceuded
upon it in lire; and the smoke thereof asceud
ed as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole
mount quaked greatly." Such was the solem
nity witli which God gave to the Israelites, and
to the world, this greut command "1 huC
hhalt mot Kill." It is not peculiar to theOjd
Testament, it is reaffirmed and strengthened in
the New. It is not even peculiar to revealed
religion. Every system of natural theology—
every code of laws that the civilized world has
adopted—the light of nature in its darkest
lorni—the teachings of the most degraded sa
vnces—all uni'.e to forbid th« crime ol murder.
1. Human life the must tacred of all things.
God is, in the highest sense, its author, and,
therefore Ha alone claima the right to lake

not destroy it. Even the life of bruws man

human life. '
2 The providence of God ha* been remarkably
displayed in the detection of this awful crime. The
murderer ha* often laid hi* plan* with the utmost
care. He ha* covered himself with the darkness
of midnight. He ha* fancied himself entirely safe
from exposure. But Providence has a thousand
ways to bring to light the hidden things of dishoo
•sty. The ingenuity of lawyers—the learning of
judges—the discrepancy ot witnesses— the concur
rence of events—the stings of conscience—the col
or ot the cheek—the expression of guilt in the
counb-nance—the very breathing of the culprit and
his efforts at composure-all these tend to bring
mm to the light. Moreover, every bod. is tryina
to find out the author. Many c imes escape pun
ishment because few are interested in couvictiaa
the offender. But vhen a murderer is concealed
in our midst, the whole world is learchimt for him
l ake a few examples. Dr Webster ot Boston kiU
ed Dr. Parkman, his benefactor and friend. No
eye saw the deed. It was done witbin the cloister*
of a Medical College—where all the facilities were
at hand to conceal the body—and by a professor of
skill sufficient to enable him to consume, by cor
roding agents.the flesh and the bones of the deceas
ed. But the dark deed came cut to the light of day.
And—let it be said to the credit of the Boston ju
ry— the blood stained murderer expiated his crime
on the gallows. Some years ago, Eppes of Peters
ourg committed a sira lar crime. In the absence of
all evidence ot his guiit, he removed to tUe far
South. But by a singular train of incidents he was
afterwards suspected, apprehended, brought back,
tried, convicted hud I ccu!d givp otber
examples, but it is needless. So frequently has
this crime, when secretly comm tted, been divulged
and traced to its true ar.rhor, that it has become a
proverb : "Afurdtrtcili out" Let no one think for
a moment, then, Ihht ne can stain his hands with
innocent blood and then escape punishment.
3 The word of God stuaiuusiy forbids whatever
leads to this terrible crime. In this respect the re
ligion of the Bible shows its suitableness to our na
ture and its superiority to all other religions. It
removes the causa of »-vil—it lavs the axe at the
root of the tree—it aims to regulste and rt.train
the outward conduct by correcting the heart —
Hnnce it forbids covctousnns», We ail know ibat «
strong desire to p< ssese vtbat others have, might,
under slight temptations, urge us to put cut of the
way the rightful owner :hat we may obtain the ob
j ct. Highway robbers of.en kill the incautious
traveller, not iromiil will to him, but from a desire
of gain that blind* them to all sense of pity. Covet
ousness tempts men to iii-hanestj, to oppression,to
falsehood and to mux] r. God therefore says:—
"Thou shalt not covei ihy neighbor's house, thou
shalt not covet thy wife, nor his man
servant, nor his maid servant, nor his ox, nor his
ass, nur anything th«i is rhy ueighb-ii'a." Il your
neighbor lives in a palni-e l; nd you live in a hovel or
a cellar.be content. Be .haoklul lor your mercies
and envy not hi» to him. God has assigned your
various positions and to repine is to rebel against
Him. Covetousness is idolatry. I; forbids hatred.
Whatever welmbitual!" h»te we would destroy,ii
proper occasions shou'd urise. Hence the Bible
says. Whosoever hatttli his brother is a murderer,
and ye know thxt no murderei bath eternal ife
abiding in him. I do sincerely believe that no real
Chrisnau can long cherish hatred to any person on
earth. He may be fir a moment—he may
be subject to ebulitioi.s of passion, he may be con
sciouo of receiving unjuu and cruel treatment.—
Eut all this will not ii.spiie or retaiu in his bosom
that torturing, long ci uin.ued feeling called hatred.
Such an emotion evaporates from the eoul under
i the shining of the Sun of Righteousness. God is
\ loce. His whole la* is comprehended in this single
word, lore. The gospel u * system of lovt. Christ
is the incarnation of lov ■■. The Church is the bro
\ therbood of love. Heavtn is emphatically the world
ol love.
It forbids merge Whether our injuries we
real or imaginary, we are positively forbidden to
eberish or to aet out the feeling of retaliation. By to
doing, we trespass on the right* and claim the pre
rogatives of the Divine Being, for it in written,
Vengeance is mine 1 will repay, aaith the Lord.
Even the murderer of your bosom friend is not to
Oe made the object of your personal revenge. Be
is to be executed by the majesty of those laws
which eternal justice has enacted, and by toe baads
of the officer who "is the minister ot God—a re
venger to execute wrath upou him that doeth evil."
It is worthy ot notice when Cain, the first murder
er, was cursed of God tor his crime, and said from
the promptings cf a guilty conscience, "it shall
come to pass that every one that liudeth me shall
slay me:" that th" Loia said unto him, "There
fore, whosoever s'ayeth Cain, vengeance shall be
taken «<n him seven told. And the Lord set a mark
ou him, lest any finding him sr.ou.d kill him. Let
»s then, it we shall be treated unkindly, follow the
example of Him 1 who, when he w„s reviled, re
viled not again ; w he:i he sutfered. he threatened
; not, but committed iiiiuselt to Bun that judgeth

! 4. Tee ui!l ction of murder is the greatest possible
1 injury that we can do to our fellow man. Lite is a
Oiesfiug tha lndudrs alt otbeis, and this blessing
is taken away by the assassin. The love of lite is
an instinctive piinciple—the most powmfulimpulse
ot our nature—and this love ia thwarted by the
murderer. The right to live is an original, divine
lg conferred, heav.u-dt.fin.detL right, mat nothing
out ci,me can ever toileit; and this right it rudely
violated by the murderer. Hs cuts short the period
of probation granted by the Judge ot all, and sends
his victim without a moment's preparation to give
bis final account The parish Siint in the world
would shrink from going to the judgment conse
quent upon death, without acme time to examine
himsi-lt aud to beseech the divine clemency This
brief time of prayer and penitence is denied to the
victim by his ruthless destroyer. And though we
dare not limit the m-rcy of God in such cases, yet
this does not iu the least abate the cruelty of the

An Efficacious Chastisement.—A mon
exemplary wife had ihe misfortune to wed a hut
band who, shortly after their marriage, became
utmost & sot. He was not a hard-hearted, nor
an unjust man, but, like numerous others
could not resist temptation, and whenever
asked to drink, had not the moral courage to
say "no."' His wife, whom he really loved,
expostulated and reasoned, until he promised
never to taste liquor again; hut aa soon as
thrown into company, his resolutions were for*
gotten, and he fell into his old degrading habit.
Sho wept bitter, bitter tears, and began to dee
pair of ever weaning hiin from his monstrous
vice, especially as she had implored one of his
false friends in vain not to lead her husband
into evil company. Kegularly, however, tbe
corrupting associate called, and, despite of her
tears, solicited her husband to visit auch and
such a place. The infatuated man could not
resist, and went und came iu a beastly stale of
intoxication.
The wretched woman wrought to frenzy bjr
the seeming ruin that awaited her,determined
upon some plan to free her liege lord front the
importunities of his deceitful companion. One
night, while her husband was asleep,she heard
the well known footstep and knock "ft tbe
l door, and opening it carefully, with a stout
horsewhip in her han.l, seixed the unwelcome
visitor by the hair of the head, and inflicted
> upon his body a chastisement of tbe most ss
vere character. As soon as she released bin,
he ran off, and has never since returned to sow
thorns in the domestic parterre of her once
peaceful borne. Her husband was so impress
ed with ber strength of mind and courage, ibat
he resolved to be as much a man as sue, sad
has since been abstemious and bappjr.—Cm*

Politenessi—A lively little Frenchman 1 *

him troops of friends and his house waa the re
sort from all the country side for many milts
around. Our jolly Frenchman waa'always
in the habit ot assisting his lady visitors to
alight, and he invariably accompanied hie at
tentions with a good hearty kits. It waa gen*
erally understood that ibis last waa very well
received by tba daughters ol Eve.
Late one sparkling winter night after be had
received, kissed and dismissed aeveral sleigh
loads of rosy girls, a merrv jingling was again
heard in tbe distance. Meantime the moon
had set, butoui host sallied out to welcome the
new comera. One after the other he lifted the
ladies from their seatu, saluted them as usual
and conducted tbem to his old-fashioned par
lor, where the fire waa blazing brightly. What
was his dismay on coming to light to find the
