Mr. Enron: As in tlie accompanying dissertation on the importance of the Sabbath School Insti tution, wc doubt not a lively interest will be taken by many among your numerous rea dars, a place for it is solicited in your in ■tractive journal. Wo would remark, that this institution lias for soma time flourished in our owa commu nity, sod in many respects has received due encouragement; yet wc think the light in which the essay presents it, is one in which it has hitherto been but little regarded_ “ Mankind now stand in a more interesting attitude, than in auy preceding age, and their moral energies are strikingly developed in a multiplicity of peculiarly bold enterprises; aa unbounded field lias open for cultivation, but their resources seem inexhaustible; end it asay ha asserted, that among the many in lUtulMoa which rank high in facilitating Lhese ends, none are pre-eminent to the Sab bath School.” Frem the .Smutty-ScA—/ JeurnaL IMPORTANCE'OP SABBATH SCHOOLS. If it ba true, as was intimated in the last number, that this age is marked by s growing neglect of the Bible in the tn itructioos of tba family, and af tha pri 0*7 school, it matt ba admitted that the Sabbath School, or some other well or Ssaiaad plan of religious education, is in ispensable to preserve os from utter de geaoraey. But aot te insist upon this, as boom auy doubt it. all are ready to admit Ihst this age is strongly marked by valua ble improvements in onr system of popu lar sdueslien And my position is, that this spirit of improvement in other re speets, requires n corresponding spirit of improvement and advanaetnent in reli gioas knowledge. And now I ask, does not this thnugkt commend itself at ooce ta every man’s judgment and conseieace ? Can any system af education be consider ed whole, complete, and beantiful in all its peris, which does not giv# to each branch an amount of time and labour in same degree proportional to it* impor tance ? Bat is there nay book of instruc tion worthy to be compared with the Bi ble ? Is any other study more improving (o the mind, as well ee the heart, than the study of the holy Scriptures? Is any other acquisition worthy te be named, when rmnpiren wi«n me Kaowisafeoiuod ami hi* ton Je*us Christ? If there be any who do not acknowledge the authority of the Bible a« the word of Ood. aad who do not believe that religion ought to be con nee ted with education, I eannot suppose that they will he influenced by these con sideration*. If these line* shall meet the eya nf such an one. let him he admonish ed to hewers. Consider well, my friend, the ground on which yon aland.

Can waj bear the reproach—dare we be eccessary f® tbe guilt ef such an inconsistency ?—' 1 hrn let es ao longer expos# ourselves to tbe charge. Let it never d« forgotten that preparation for business in this world ought to be a subordinate object. The • grand abject ef education u to fit the pupil fa*- heaven. It is easy to believe that, in' •®*7 tebeol, tbe Bible ought daily to take tbe preference of all other books. Tbe j fbet that the knowledge which it imparts is beyond comparison more necessary to our happiness here and hereafter, than that derived from any other book, seems to taaeh this. But since tbe Bible, in moat schools, has no soch preference, necessity is laid upon us. If wo would not be gross ly inconsistent, of resorting to some ether! method of thorough Christina education. But such n method is found in our system of Sabbath school and Bible class instruc tion. As it regards tbo amount of time derated to instruction, it may not be lolly adequate to meet all the exigencies of tha case. It is the best substitute that can be found for daily religions instruction in tbe family and in the sehool, though It -^ . J »uin:rsrug iu«u in* | •traction where it can l*f given. In its plan ol operations, tbn Sabbath school is ehsrtclrriMil hy a spirit of improvement and of benevolent enterprise worthy of oar times. It offers,“without money and without, price," to all persons willing to bo conoeeted with it, not regarding age, •ex, denomination, rank, station, or com plexion, the means of making inestimable attainments in divine knowledge Incom parable system of education! The no bleat improvement of the age! I think I hazard nothing in saying, that no other institution embraces in its plan of opers tioos. and in its object, ao much that is great, and noble, and good, as the Ameri can Sunday School Union. The Sabbath school is aa much teauirad by the spirit of our times as any 01 our improved mo dern institutions. It offers advantages which ought to be very highly prized.— and young persons who wish to prepare themselves for duty, or who oven wish to hold n respect shin standing in society, should feel it more important to receive the instructions of tbn Sabbath school and Bible clest, than to bn instructed in any modern science. They who neglect to avail themselves of these instructions now, will find hereafter, whatever may be their acquisitions in other respects, that their education is radically defective.— They will find tbemselvee deficient io one braneh ef scienee which wilt, ere long, be acknowledged of all otkere most iropor tent. Let no ono flatter tbemselvee that they shall acquire the necessary know ledge of the Bible merely by oceesionel rending. As well might wa say that tbn occasional careless reading of a treatise on surveying, would make one master of the erf; or that a cursory perusal of a work on navigation would enable one ac curately and safely to conduct the ship a cross the pathless ocean. In order to be properly understood, the Bible needs to be thoroughly studied. And it is matter ! of joy and of thanksgiving to Him who' has all hearts in his bands, that this senti ment is beginning to be duly appreciated. Let it be cberitJied by the friends af edu cation, sod let that nohle and benevolent institution, in which the requisite Bible knowledge may ho acquired, receive the constant patronage and firm support of every well wisher te the oeuse of learn ing.

A-. yet, with few exceptions, the bigber classes of society have escaped. It seems to depend very much on the manner in which people live, and the poor have been : struck in every quarter, oft« n at the very next door to luxury. A friend told me this, morning, that the porter of a large and fashionable hotel, in which he lives, had been taken to the hospital; and there have been one or two cases in the airy quarter of bt. Herman, in the same street with Mr. Cooper, and nearly opposite. Several physicians and medical students have died too, but the ma jority of these live withlhr narrowest econo my, and in the parts of We city the most lia-! ble to impure effluvia. The halls go on still in the gay world ; and I presume they would j go on if there were only musicians enough left to make aa orchestra, or fashionUts to compose a quadrille. I was walking home very late from h party the night I*-lore last, with a captain in the English army. The gray of the morning was just, stealing into the sky; and after stopping a moment in t!»e Platt l ewJam*, to look at the column, stretch ing, apparently unto the very stare, we bade good morning, and parted, lie had hardly left me, he said, when he heard a frightful scream from one of the houses in the Hue Ht. Hanart, and thinking there might be some violence going on,be rang at the gate and en tered, mounting the first stair case that pre sented. A woman bad iust ooened the door and fallen on the broad stair at the lop, and was writhing ia great agony. The people of the house collected immediately; but the mo uieut my friend pronounced the word chole ra, there was a general dispersion, and he was left alone with the patient, lie took her in his arms, and carried her to a coach stand without assistance, and driving to the licit! Mrs, left her with the Sttmrt de Charitt. She has since died. As if one plague was not enough, the city ia atill alive in the fsuxbourgs with revolts.— Last night, the reap*/ was beat all over the town, the national guard called to arms and marched to the Pert* Si. IMmia, aud the dif ferent quarter* where the mobs were col lected. Mauy suppose there is no cholera except such as is produced by poison ; and tha Haiti DUu aud other hospitals are besieged daily by the infuriated mobs who swear vengeance agaioat the government, for all the mortality they witness. 1 have just returned from a visit to the Haiti IMtm—the hospiul for the Cholera.— impelled by a powerful motive, which it is necessary to explain, I had made several previous attempts to gain admission in vain; but yesterday I fell in fortunately with an Kjigltsii physician, who told me I could pass with a doctor’s diploma, which he offered lo borrow for me of some medical friend, lie called by appointment at seven this morning, to accompany me on my visit. It was like one of our loveliest mornings in June—an inspiriting, sunny, balmy day,! all softness and beauty—and we crossed the j TuMeries by one of its superb avenues, and kept down toe bank of the river to the island. W’lth the errand on which we were bound in oar minds, it wss impossible not to be struck very forcibly witb our own exquisite enjoyments of life. I am sure 1 never fell my veins fuller of the pleasure of health and motion; and I never saw a day when every thing about me seetm d better worth living for. The splendid palace of the Ixmvrc, with its long/seeds of nearly half a mile, lay in the mellowest sunshine on our left; tho lively river, covered witb boats, and panne led with its magnificent and crowded hridgrs on our right; the view of the Island, and it* massive uld structures below, and the fine gay towers of tho church of .VWri /Asm-, rising dark and gloomy, in the distance, ren dered it difleult to realise any thing but life ami pleasure. That under those very towers, which added so much to the beauty of the scene, there lay a thousand and more of poor wretches dying of a plague, was a thought my mind would not retain a moment. nan an nour • walk brought u« t<» the Plate Metre Dome, on one role of which, next (his celebrated church, stand# the hospi tal. My friedd entered, leaving me to wait till ha had found an acquaintance af whom ho could borrow a diploma. A hearse was standing at the door of the church, ami I went in for a moment. A few mourners, n it h the appearance of extreme poverty, were kneeling round a eofiln, at one of the aide altars* and a solitary priest with an attendant boy. was murmuting the pr«yers for the dead As I came ou», another bears# drove up, with a rough coffin, scantily covered with a pall, and followed hy own poor eld man_ They hurried In, and f strolled round the square Fifteen nr twenty water carriers were Ailing their buckets at the fountain opposite, singing and laughing; and at the same moment four different litters crossed to wards the hospital, etch with two or three followers, women ami children, friend* end relatives af the sick, accompanying them to the done, where they parted from them, most probably foe ever. The litters were act down for a moment before ascending the steps; the erawd pressed around and lifted the coarse curtaini farewell# are now exehongrrf, and the sick alone passed in. | dhl not see any great demonstrations of Crefing in the peon her rases that were before me* and I raa camci re, in the almost deadly cert amts of (be disease, that these hasty pe.ting* at the door of the bospiul might often he the scene a af unsurpassed snfTermga and distress.

A young woman i of apparently twenty five, was absolutely i convulsed with agony.

I fell the limbs of several and found them quite cold The etomech only bed e little ' warmth. Now end then belf e groan escaped | those who seemed the strongest t but with the exception of the universally open mouth end upturned, ghastly eye, there were no signs of much suffering. I found two who must have been deed belf an hour, undisco vered by the attendants. One of them was an old woman nearly gray, with $ very bod expression of face, who was perfecly cold— , lips, limbs, body and all. Tbe other was younger, sad looked as if she had died in 1 nun Hrr »rma mnfii.il u if ik.. k.J k._I forced half out of the sockets, and her akin < was of tke most livid and deathly purple.— i Tke woman in the next bed told me she bad i died since the&rur de Ckarite bad bee n there. It is horrible to think how these poor crea turca Buffer iu the very midst of provisions that are profeaaadly made for their relief. I asked why a simple prescription might not be drawn up by the pbyaiciaat and adminis tered by the numerous medical students who were in Paris, that aa few aa paaaible might ' suffer from delay. " Because," said my cent panion, *• the chief physicians must do every 1 thing pertenalfy, to study the complaint."— And so I verily believe more human lives are sacrificed in waiting foe experiments, than ( will ever be saved by the results. My blood boiled from tba beginning to the and of thia melancholy visit. 1 I wandered abowt atone among the beds 1 till my heart was sick, and I con Id bear it no l longer; and then rejoined my friend who was j in the train of one of the physicians, making 1 <he rounds. One would think that a dying * pet son should be treated with kindness, I never saw a rougher or more heartless man ner than that of the celebrated Dr.-, at i the bedside ef these peor creatures. A harsh question, a rude pulling open of the mouth, | to look at the tongue, a sentence or two of tinsuppressed commands to the stu dents on the progress of the disease, and the ! tram passed on. If discouragement and dea- * pair are not osedieines, 1 should think the visits of such physicians were of little avail. The wretched sufferers turned away their heads after he had gone, in every instance that t saw, with an expression of visibly in creased distress Several of them refused to answer h»* questions altogether. On reselling the bottom of the SkUe St. Menii/ue. one of the male wards* I beard loud voices and laughter. I bail heard much more groanirg and complaining in passing among the men, ami tbs horrible discordance struck me as something infernal. It pro ceeded from one of the sides to which the patients had been remered »ho were reco vrrtng. The most successful treatment had been found to be />umcA, very strong, with but little acid, and being permitted to drink I as much as they would, they had become i partially intoxicated. It was a fiendish sight, ! ■---/' --r .. •ng from one bed to tbe other, so.I with their •till pallid frees ami blue lips, and tbe hovpi* tal dress of white, tliry looked like so many carousing corpses.

Tho fall of Robespierre wit lastened by the following circum dance, as related in the life of the impress Josephine: Tallien waa the life and tool of the :on*pi racy organized by the Mountain >«rly, against the despotism of Robes pierre. Bat the utmost circumspec tion was necessary ; and the conspira tors were waiting for the ripeoing of svents, before striking th« important blow. Tallien being in lore with Madame Je Fontenay, (whom he afterward* parried,) but being unable to saw* her rosn revolutionary law, used Is walk lailv before the casement of th« Car nelites, where t>he waa imnriionerf. hat he might have the satisfaction of keeinp her through the grates. Madame lleaunarnait (^afterwards empreaa cf France ] waa in the aams room. While the conspirators were waiting he progress of events and the waning >opulanty of the tyrant, •* Madame de rontenay had secretly learned that the was speedily to be called beforo ihe Convention. This she knew to be ^ut a prelude to the block; aware also if Tallien’t designs, she resolved to irgo their exocot ion, sod that to ae :ure at least a chance of escape. She md Madame Beauhamsis appeared in he evening leaning on each other, as f to breathe the fresh air throogh the prison bars. The former made a sign lo sll others imperceptible, soliciting fsIlien’B attention. It may easily be magined with what anxiety both watch • sd his motions, as they beheld him lift from the ground a piece of cabbage italk, flung from the window by Ma Jame de Kootenay, and in which she' isd concealed the following note: “My trial in decreed—the result is eer lain. If you loss me as you say, urge every Bran* to save France and me.” ** Similar methods of communication were by no means unftequenl in theto limes of trouble; disparted friends contrived to maintain a cor responds ore frequently by Ihe most ingenious art*. »nd lellrts were transmitted to their destination roocealed in fruits and flovvet*.
