SATURDAY MOBHING DEO. M,
Mr. Cfsss*'* Speech.
la hi* speech of last Monday,an extract from
fetch was published by us a few days ago, Mr.
COoxkob took the trme ground In defence of
»«*n> slavery, by declaring that it was not
oaly foundad la justice, but that la its lnfiu
<wrtt | t WM an Institution eminently benign.
It is strange, bat it is aeVertheless trua, that
this pocitiou was assumed, as fir as we
have been able to sea, by boss of the conserve
tlve speakers who addressed the great meet-
Inge lately assembled In the various North
era cities. Nay, It I* a singular fact that
until «f late years It was not taken even
fcy Southern men, although It is not only
tke true, but it is the oaly true ground. The
cause of this is obvious enough to all who are
acquainted with the history and progress oi
alavery, and of the ideas connected with that
tastitntion, and is powerfully and with truth
exposed in a work to which we alluded on a
former occasion, vi*: M Phllosophy and I'rac
tice of Slavery;" by Professor Smith, of Ran
dolph Macon—a work which we again take
occasion to recommend.
At a very early period in our national his
tory, alavery was denounced as positively
wrong by more than one distinguished \ ir
ginlan. In I?*\ «he Methodist Church, with
out examination, as far as wecan see, endorsed
this Opinion, and gave currency to it, by ex
pressing in decided terms their disapproba
tion of such members a* continued to be
slaveholder*. These opinions thus promul
gated. extended throughout the whole slave
holding community, and gave rise to all
the troubles that have since ensued. Within
our own recollection, it was very unusal to
defend the institution upon its on merits. The
only defence set up, by the large majority ol
writers, speakers, and conversationist*, was
that it was impossible to get rid of the evil at
tha same time that the continuance of it
was palpably a sin. A distinguished gen
tleman, long connected with the press of
Virginia, once assured us that the first per
son he ever heard maintain that slavery
wai not only founded in justice, but that
It was a blessing to the country in which it
existed, was the late Robert Baylor
Skmpj.k, of Fredericksburg, when he was a
mere youth, some thirty-odd year* ago. The
great advantage which the admission that
alavery was sinful gave to the abolitionist* in
the beginning, and when they were as yet but
m mere knot of insignificant fanatics, is obvi
ous at the first glance. The apology that it
coutd not be gotten rid of, was laughed to
scorn, and if the first branch of the proposi
tion be true, very ju*tly laughed to scorn.—
To *ay that a practice is sinful, and that the
man who indulge* in it cannot abandon it, is
to speak high treason against the majesty of
the Supreme being. In other words, it is sheer
and palpable blasphemy. Our Maker, who
Mt* before u* both good and evil, and pre
scribe* punishment lor sin, most assuredly
never made that a sin which it is impossible
for any portion of his creatures to avoid. If
slavery was a sin, and if those who held slaves
believed it to bo *o, they were guilty in a de
gree that cannot be extenuated, for they had
always the means to get rid of it.
But the truth, doubted at this day by no
man who is not an abolition fanatic, is, that
slavery is no sin. The warrant of Scripture
la abundant and nnmistakeable. The patri
archs who enjoyed the largest favor iu the
sight of God, as Abraham and Lot, were
evidently, from the terms of Scripture, large
slaveholders, and if we are to believe that
alaveholding is a sin, we are led to the mon
strous conclusion that the Supreme Being en
couraged and patronized the habitual practice
of sin, in the persons of men whom he es
pecially singled out as objects of his appro
bation. From the language of the Decalogue
—the Jewish Constitution—it is obvious that
the institution of slavery had been preserved
by the Jews during their captivity, and that
it had in no instance incurred the Divine dis
approbation. "Thou shalt not," is the lan
guage of the Decalogue, "covet thy neighbor's
man-skrvast, nor his maid-servant, nor
anything that is thy neighbor's." Not one
word of disapproval, not a single hint at the
sin of slaveholding, in this law, delivered in
thunder from the top of Mount Sinai, and
from the very lips of Jehovah himself. This
law, delivered under circumstances so im
pressive, received the express sai ction of the
Saviour of mankind himself, when he said
"Think not that I am come to destroy the lave
or the prophets; I corns not to destroy, but to
fulfill."
In pursuing the history of the Jews, under
the theocracy, wa find that God provided in
their civil institutions, for the institution
which he had so solemnly sanctioned. Under
them a Hebrew might lose his liberty in no
I®6S than si* different ways. Ist. When he
was very poor, he might sell himself. "If thy
brother be waxed poor,and be sold unto thee."
Lev. xxv: 39. 'id. A father could sell his
child. "If a man sell his daughter to be a
maid-servant."—Ex. xxi: 7. 3d. Debtors be
came the slaves of their creditors. "My hus
band is dead, and the creditor is come to take
onto him my two sons to be bondsmen."—ll.
Kings iv: 1. 4th. A thief was sold for the bene
fit of the man he had robbed, when he had no
money to pay the fine. "If he have no money
Then he shall be sold for the theft."—Ex. xxii:
3. sth. If a Hebrew was taken in war he wat
•old as a slave. 11. Chron. xii: f. (jib. If a
Hebrew ransomed a Hebrew from a Gentile,
he might sell him again, to one of hiu own
nation.
It is true that those who became slaves
Tinder this system, were emancipated in the
year of jubilee, (the seventh year,) unless
they refused to accept their liberty. But ihe
law also made provision for perpetual slave
ry. Here it is: "Both thy bondmen and thy
bondmaids which lhou slialt have, shall be ol
the heathen that are round about you; of them
shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids. More
over of the children of the strangers that do
sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and
of their families that are with you, which
they begat iu your land; and they shall be your
possession; and ye shall take them as an inherit
ance/or your children after you t» inherit them for
« po'setiion; they shall be your bondmen for-
Lev. xxv : 44—46.
It is impossible that an institution thus,
sanctioned by God, and endorsed bj* the Sa
viour of mankind, can be a sin,and tho*eslave
holders who admit that it is a sin, abandon
the whole field: for if it be a sin, they ought to
cease the practice of it, let it cost what it may.
The only precepts which we meet with in
Holy Writ thai bear at all upon thequeetion,
are the admonitions of Chkist, "Tbou shalt
lore thy neighbor as thyself," and "all thing*
'Whatsoever that ye would men should do unto
yon, do ye even so unto them." It is contend
ed that the principle inculcated in the first
quotation is absolutely subversive of slavery;
and yet, we find that the Gospel not only ac
knowledged slaveholders as "believers" and
"worthy of all honor," but required Christian
slaves held by tLern to acknowledge 'them a>
brethren. Th« second quotation is evidently
an interpretation of the first. There are two
•eases in which it may be understood. The
first is, do unto another whatsoever you would
have him do unto you were be in yonr situa
tion and yon| in his. The second is, do unto
another whatsoever you would have a right
to require him to do unto you were your situ
ations reversed. If the language of our Sa
viour Uto be taken in the first sense, then it
Is certain!y a duty to abolish domestic slavery
Bat this interpretation proves too much even
foifao abolitionist. The child la always a do
mastic stave, and there is scacely a wild boy
In the world who does not wish to be released
iron the restraint of pupilage. Interpreted
hi this marner, this precept would, at

that this was not the Interpretation which the
Saviour designed to be placed upon this m*m
orahla precept. It is evideot that the seoond

ereignty 1 There can be bnt one answer to
that question In Virginia at least. But we do
not feel called npon to discus* it. It is suffi
cient for us that the precepts so firmly relied
on by the abolitionists, do not touch the case
at all.
P. B.—We omitted to mention that the same
ground assumed by Mr. O'Oohwoe, was ta
ken, also, by Mr. HnnwsTtit at Philadelphia-
L*av*-Takino.— We learn from the KHquir
er that immediately after thestndent* left the
Capitol grounds, on Thursday, the Executive
officer* of the Slate waited on the Governor,
and the Attorney General delivered, on the
(tart of himself and co-ofllcials, a farewell
speech, in which much kindly feeling was in
termixed with the genial humor which Mr-
Tucker so happily commands on all occasions.
The Governor replied in a similar strain, and
both speeches were frequently interrupted by
kindly repartees on the part of each gentle
man to whom special reference was made. A
parting glass and kind demonstrations of indi
vidual adleux closed the ceremonies.
lAte in the evening the officer* of the Flr*t
Regiment paid the Governor a complimentary
visit.
Newark, N. J.—A gentleman just from
Newark assures us that two-thirds of the
population of that place, at least, are Brown
sympathizers. He relates a good many Inci
dents; one is that be saw a ragged and half
starved white man picking up bits of coal in
the streets, and from curiosity accosted him,
and fouud in the poor wretch an enthusiastic
admirer of Old Brown. The Newark Eveuiug
Journal dare* to be independent even ill the
midst of so much fanaticism, and asks the fol
lowing question, which shows the kind of
stuff that has been dealt out from the pulpit
of that city :
"Would it not be well for those clerical gen
tlemen who have remembered 4 Old Brown
and his confederates ' in their pulpit instruc
tions for the past few weeks, to devote a single
sermon to the enormities of horse stealing and
murder, as illustrated in the lives of these
Christian philan trophists f"
The same journal contains acall for aUnion
meeting, signed by some two thousand per
sons. We may add. by way of comment, that a
large portion of the ready-madeclothing sold in
Richmond is manufactured in Newark.
Sad Case *>k Drowkixo.-The body of Miss
Bare, who was drowned last Saturday in
Rockbridge county, Va , was found on Mon
day night, by a negro mtn. The Lexington
Gazette gives the following additional par
ticulars :
The ford is an artificial one, being a sub
merged bridge, and when the water is discol
ored by the rains, as it was at that time.it
i-pquires a good degree of care to avoid riding
oil ilie bridge into the deep water. Miss Bader
succeeded in passing safely over, when she
looked back and cautioned Miss Bare that she
was getting too near the edge of the bridge ;
the latter, in attempting to draw her horse
more to the middle of the bridge, checked him
too suddenly, when he slipped and fell, throw
ing his rider into the deep water.
Shocking Accident. — The Bockingham
Register furnishes the following account of an
accident which occurred in Page county, Va.,
recently:
Mr. Samuel Vines, forgeman at Speedwell
Forge, near Luray, Fage county, came to his
death early or. the morning of the Mth iust.,
suddenly, and iu a most stiocking manner.—
Mr. Vines, it is supposed, was in the act of ap
plying tar to the pitman-shaft in the bellows
pit v.-bile the wheel was in motion, and, losing
his balance, fell forward, lodging his head
upon the shaft in its descefit, which was car
ried suddenly through a space of about two or
three inches! terribly crushing the skull and
scattering the brain over the shaft and throw
ing the unfortunate man partly prostrate
upon the pit-lloor, where, after somehonrs, he
was found.
Movement among the Students in New
York.—The students of the New York Uni
versity Medical College held a large meeting
last Wednesday evening to decide on imitating
the Fhiladelphia Southerners in seceding from
Northern colleges. The meeting, which was a
very enthusiastic one, was in session for a
long time, and after a great deal of speaking,
fourteen students agreed to a resolution to
leave the University.
Unworthy Exception.—An employer in
Norfolk has discharged a member of the Rifle
corps from his situation, throwing him with
his family penniless upon the world, forgoing
to Harper's Ferry. This is the only instance
of the kind that we have heard of. The Argus
»ays this employer has expressed sympathy for
Old Drown and his confederates.
Robert Gray, Esq., an old and well-known
lawyer, of Rockingham county, Va., died on
the 17th inst. He held the place of Attorney
for the Commonwealth up to the year 1811,
when he resigned it, and retired to enjoy a
well and hard-earned repose, and a competen
cy acquired by industry and fair dealing.
Ho>\ Jefferson Davis—The recent Mis
sissippi Democratic Stale Convention nomi
nated Senator Jefferson Davis for the Presi
dency, and a Washington letter says the dele*
pites from that State in the Charleston Con
vention will give him their undivided sup.
port.
Railway Connection At a recent meet
ing In Uleckleuburg county, it was resolved to
petition the General Assembly for a charter to
construct a branch of the South-Side Railroad
from Blacks and Whites to St. Tammany or
Alexander's Ferry, or some intermediate point
on Roanoke River.
Reconciliation. —The difficulty which has
existed between Senator Johnson, of Arkan
sas, and Mr. Hindman, member of Congress
from that State, has been amicably adjusted,
by the mediation of Messrs. Pryor and
Toombs.
Fiee and Eess ok Life.—The Commercial
House, at Rockland, Me., was destroyed by
fire last Tuesday night. James Sears was
killed, and James Elmer and Ed. W. Eove
were severely injured. The loss amounted
to $12,000, two-thirds of which is insured.
Homicide.—Calvin T. Morgan has been ar
rested in Washington couuty, Va., and recog
nized in the sum of $-J,OOO for his appearance
t > answer a charge oT killing a negro, by in
flicting blows upon him.
Fatal Result.—Kd ward L. Smith, aged '15
years, son of Dr. Arthur S. Smith, died in
Portsmouth, on Thursday, from an accidental
gun-shot wound received on the l*th inst.
Holiday Visit.—The Norfolk papers state
that Lieut. Gov. Jackson and several members
of the Legislature will spend Christmas in
i bat city.
Impaled ok a Sraq—A man named Ju
lius Meyers, was recently impaled on a snag,
while sitting on the larboard side of a steam
boat in the Mississippi river. Asnagcame up
suddenly, striking Meyers about midway of
ihe body, entering between the legs, and com
ing out at the side. A deck passenger was the
Urst to reach him, and had to cut and horribly
mangle his leg with a bowie knife in order to
release It from between an escape side pipe.—
Meyers lived only about three-quarters of an
hour after the accident, and was burled on the
shore near the scene of the occurrence.
Duel in California.—A duel was fought
near Shasta, Cal, on the 29d nit., by R. T.
Miller, County Judge, and James Gallagher,
late District Attorney of Trinity comity —
Judge Miller wa* shot through both legs, just
below the knees—not serious wounds. Judge
Miller's ball struck the ground Ave feet in
front of where he stood. After ihe first fire
he principals shook hands, and expressed
themselves perfectly satisfied.
Look Sitabp !—To-day (Dee. 24) is the time
flxed by the Second Adventists of Massachu
setts, lor the destruction of the world. They
have beeu making active preparations for the
event, hot we reckon they'll have to "wait a
little longer."
A Clerical Villai*.—Rev. Dr. Wm. M.
Fin ley, formerly of Gray ville, 111, was ar
at Salem, Ind., on TiiursSay Last,
charged with producing au abortion on the
ptrton of a girl named Mary Llnley, in Gray

Wi*i*« Comforts. —Flower-arowned
Spring, with hor sunny smiles and girlish tear*, her
merry voice and fleeting step, left us long ago.—
Scarce had the sigh of regret died upon our lips at
her departure, ere summer, bright and beautiful,
burst upon our gaze. We had nearly forgotten, in
her enchanted presence, her fair, *w*et *iuter.
whose violet-scented breath had ao lately fanned
our cheek. She charmed us for a •'season" with
the brightness of her amile, and we imbibed our
•hire of pleasure, with up* pressed to her flower
wreathedchalice. Yet, alas! she. too, ha* gone. In
her stead ■* winter, drear. No loncer above our
heads smiles the bright, blue canopy which summer
spread. The thin, grey curtain veil* the struggling
minlieams, which would mock in th*ir joyousness
the frosty looks o( melancholy winter day*. Yet,
if winter ha* liereft us of the freih green carpet
which kind summer wove beneath our feet, it ha*
in requital left us the c >in forts. Injuries, and so
cial enjoyments peculiar t» the season.
It is true, that chance is the order of the universe,
time the director of the movement, and money
ths motive power. No less true is it, that in the
varying round, one has hardly time to note the
events that crowd upon each other'* heels. Already
arc our column* crowded with advertisement*
pointing to the fine stock of good* "just received."
and "the ory is still they come." In no estab'ish
mrntin the eity is the spirit of change and im
provement more discernafile. than in tha celebrated
HAIN'T NICHOLAS SALOON, kept by our enter
prising friend, ANDREW ANTONI, next to the
KXCHANGfc, BANK. The poet well say*, "a thihg
of t'eauty is a joy forever." and truly these words
seem to apply to tnat well-known house. If it be
true that
"One Cwsar lives—a thousand are forgot,"
we have no doubt that the Ca;sar longest em
balmed in eur grateful recolloction*. will be AN
DKKW ANTONI, the great civic conqueror who
uresiiles over the destinies and guides the helm at
tliofained SAINT NICHOLAS. Wecan truthfully
sa», and the public certify our correctness, that it
isono of the chief attractions in a city—the fa
vored and favorite resort of its neighbors, who, for
many a league around, have sought with eagerness
its welcome presence We feel somewhat of a deli
cacy in speaking of his establishment, so well and
so favorabW known to the fashionable world. It is,
by all odds, the most extensive (save, perhaps, one)
in the city. Its extensive counters, shelves, and
tibles literally grow weary of the weight of GOOD
THINGS packed on them. No wonder, therefore,
that it should be the favorite resort of all who ap
preciate those rare delicacies (food fit for gods,)
with which h« is wont to resale his friends. Wo
must be pardoned for dwelling so long on the at
tractions so profusely scattered in the beautiful es
tablishment alluded to—there is an airof magnifi
cence about its interior wnich rivets our gaze, en
lists our sympathies and makes a pleasant path
for memory to travel back to visions of FRENCH
CANDY, BON BoNS, delirious ousters- and fffet

estimate of his power and capacity., or over-esti
mate that large trade of hi# which cails for every
thing in quantities and will not be denied. "Man
wants but .little here below, nor wants that little
long;" but should man. woman or child want ever

gards the man or what lie has for sale, or the quan

At a meeting of the President and Directors
of ttie .lames River and Kantwha Company, held
in the city of Richmond on Tuesday. December2u,
InW. the following order was adopted :
Whereas. The Hoard of Directors, influenced by
considerations of revenue atone, adopted in Janu
ary last resolutions authorizing a drawback in fa
vor of any party who would transport by wayof ihe
Canal, to and from Lynchburg and points below
City Point, certain classes of goods and produce at
specified rates, including all charges, which rates
were determined alter a comparison of rates on
competing routes, and wee in conformity with a
resolution adopted by the Stockholders in March,
1358, whereby the Board of Directors were instruct
ed not to pe'rmit the trade legitimately belonging
to the Canal to be diverted from it; and whereas,
the said drawback is iu eifect a discrimination
against cities of our own State in favor of Northern
cities, and may l>e regarded, therefore, as an in
ducement for the merchants of Virginia and the
Southwest t-« deal at the North rather than in Vir
ginia: Therefore,
Resulv<(l. That the following resolutions, which
were adopted by the Boa d oi Directors on the 13th
January. 1869, be repealed from and alter tin 15th
day of January, 1830, viz:
tieso.ved, That on all articles urder the first
class, received from any point below City Point and
transported by Canal to Lo nehburg, at a cost not
exceeding 25 cents per 100 pounds, including ail
charges of dra» age, commission, freight and toll,
an allowance of 7 cents per 100 lbs. shall b"» made in
favor of the shipper, wnes lie shall have satisfied
the toll narherer at Richmond that the said goods
have been transported at the above rate, to be set
tled monthly by the tol! gatherer.
Resolved. the toil on flour transported from
Lynchburg to City Point by the Canal, at a cost not
exceeding 31 cents per barrel and IS cents per bag,
including all charges, shall be reduced to the ex
tent of 5 cents per barrel »nd 3 cents per bag.
Resolvid. That the following resolution, which
was adopted by the Hoard of Directors on the 11th
oi February. 1859. be reaffirmed, vix:
Resolved. That on all articles transported upon
tlie Canal from Richmond to l.j nchburg or iroiu
Lynchburg to Richmond, goinj to or coming from
Knoxville, Tenn , or any point west of Knoxville,
there shall be charged a toll not exceeding one
cent per ton per mile, provided that such articles
areshipped at Richmond to go direct to Knoxy-ille
or beyond, or are shipped at Knoxville or any place
west thereof to come direct to Richmond-

Ho ! for Christmas !— In the new and ele
gant saloons of ANDREW PIZZFNI, on Broad
street, our old friend, Kris Kringle, proposes to
hold an extraordinary LEVEE on Christmas next.
He hopes to meet many old acquaintances and
form many new ones on that occasion. With this
expectation, he has m»de provision for their en-
on a most magnificent scale, and is
determined to dazzle the ejes and captivate the
he*rt* of all who come. In a sort of confidential
way, he has allowed us to take a peep at his bril
liant arrangements and we wi 1 so iar run the nsk
of violating his confidence as to say that the pres
ent (or rather what u ill be the present on Christ
mas dav,) far surpa«ses any previous effort, and
throws into the shade anything ever before seen in
Richmond. We suppose it is principally because
this is KrisKrinele's/irsiappearance in ANDREW
PlZZ'Nl'Snew Napoleonic Palace,and as Andrew
has alwins been a favorite with old Kris, he in
tends now to give him such a Christmas salutation
as was never seen or neard of iiefore.
Well, u-hat has he / We answer by asking
what ha« he aofgot? That, you have to find out,
and the only way to do so satisfactorily is to go and
see for yourself, nnd be sure to go in time. You'll
not be disappointed—and "ainerrie Christmas to
you." 3t
