OBEDIENCE TO THE LAWB.
Many «f the New York clergy, abolition
Ist* included, preached sermons on Sunday
lust, invoking the people to sustain the pro
hibitory temperance law, on the ground that
when tinman Law is in accordance with
Divine Law, there is no possible excuse
for disobedience.
It will be seen that these gentry have left
themselves a loophole to creep out of in case
they should be asked why it is the duty of
the citizens to sustain one law —such as the
temperance enactment —and to disobey ano
ther—such as the Fupi ive Slave law. Tbe
human law must accord with the Divine Law
in order to render obedience a duty ! Tb»-y
do not condescend to inform us who is to he
the judge of that accordance. They daren< t.
Well knowing; that the right of private j"de
ment is one «>f the most valued rights of Pro
tostantism, they are aware that their doc
trine translated into plain Eat<lish amounts
to this: that if any and every man inlbe com
munity chooses to oonsider any law unscrip
tarsi, it is their duty to disobey it—a princi
pie which, if carried into practice, would <>f
c<>ur«e lead at once to rebellion and anarchy.
We Should like these worthies also to ex
pi-in what is to be dune und'-r their princi
ple in ca«e one portion of the community be
lieves that a particular law is in accordance
with the Divine Law, and ano'her portion
believes the contrary. Are the fi'st to obey
and the last to disobey J Or are th«y to go
into the streets and settle the theological
question at the point of the bayonet / i*T
«x imple, there is the Fugitive Slave Law —
Abolitionists think it opposed to the Divine
L>»w. Slavery men point to the epistle of
St. Paul to Philemon, in which a holy apostle
himself returned a fugitive to bondage, and
exhorted him, as a Christian, to be obedit-Lt
to his master. They bring up hundreds of
other passages from Scripture proving that
slavery has the Divine sanction, a fact which
vraa never questioned by any commentator
of any church till abolitionism after eighteen
centuries, made the wonderful disoovery.--
What is to be done in such a case ? So too
with a prohibitory liquor law. If obedience
is to depend on a nan's opinion whether a
law is in accordance with the Divine Law.
then a great many people wi 1 maintain the
negative of that proposition in reference to
the snti liquor enactment. They will main
tain that, to yield obedience to the new law,
is to be "subject to ordinances—touch not,
t«te not, hanale not"—which subjection was
condemned by an inspired apos'le. This
plea will have quite as much color from
Scripture in it as any the abolitionists can
produce against the Fugitive Slave Law.
The true doctriue on this subject is set
forth in the words of Inspiration itself:—
"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-
Wherefore ye must needs be subject,not only
for wrath, but*l»o for conscience sake.
TIIE NATIONAL AMERICAN.
This new paper made its appearance on
the 4th, printed in handsome style with new
types. Itaeise is large and well proportion
ed. It is understood that an association of
gentlemen will contribute to its editorial co
lumns. We have heard only a name or two
mentioned, and they are gentlemen of ability
and practised writers. Mr. Heath is the
only gentleman officially announced as con
nected with that department. His well
known character as a gentleman and a man
of talents is a guarantee tor the decorum and
dignity of the paper. It is understood that
the bows and other departments of the Na
tional American are w«ll organized.
MISS "LILLK LINDEN" AGAIN
By a communication in a late Whig,
it appears that Miss Linden has returned
to her editorial post once more, and pro
mises to reply at length in her paper, the
Repository, t# the various charges which
have been brought Bgainst her. We hope
§he may be able to dispel all the dark
olouds which have lowered over her fair
name, and come forth bright as the sun.—
This is an uncharitable and gossiping world,
always more delighted to discover a f<»ult
thau to recognize a virtue. We do not pre
tend to rit in judgment in the case of Com
mnn Rumor versus Lille Linden, but this we
miy say, that we know Common Runnr to
be a lyiDg jade, whereas of Lille Linden we
know nothing. Lille may console herself, if
inuoceat, with the consciousness of her own
parity, and the reflection that some of the
best people in the world have be»-n slander
ed. The fairest flowers are often cr pt over
by th« foulest reptiles. But if guilty, she is
receiving a portion of the natural and pro
per results of her own acts. We dislike,
however, to indulge the idea of such a possi
bility; and if Lille can only ezcnlpate her
self from the ugly charges sgaiuet her, we
will throw up our caps, and hurrah for the
Linden.
True or false, there is nothing so agreea
ble to the hum-m palate hs a well stunned
dish of scandal, especially if a woman be
the object. We shudder at the South Sea
cannibals devouring human flesh, but the
w«jr civilized white people devour human
reputations, throws cannibalism entirely into
the shade. Gourmands of this class, like epi
cures everywhere, prefer their meat a little
tainted. Nothing can exceed their bliss, as,
with eyes turned up and mouths watering,
they swallow some unclean repast. The only
reaaonable explanation of the unnatural appe
tite iS( that those who indulge it, are con
noioas of their own frailty, and delighted to
find that tbey are not the only sinners in the
world. We hope the fair Lille may be able
to show that in her example the scandal mon
gers have no ground for encooragement.
RICHMOND MANUFACTURES.
We understand that Messrs. Anderson,
Delany A Co., have contracted to build
twenty two Locomotivet for the Memphis and
Tennessee Railroad. They are to furniib
two in four months, and the others in the
coarse of the next eighteen months. Thia U
a gratifying iact. When our Railroads are
connected with the Western and Southern
roads, orders for railroad machinery and
cars will rapidly accumulate upon the bands
of ov maaufaotaren.
