Tho extract is as follow. : O S. Journal. Thero aro .omo thing, about till, "higher law" which Gov. II. did not pretont. 1. Tho only way to mako a slave under tho Hobrest Commonwealth was bv vurchae. "Of tho heathen round about shall ye 6u." etc. Leviticus xxv, 45. 2. lo obtain a bondman by kiduaonlne or stoaling, was death. "He that stealotb a man, etc, "shall suroly be put to death Exodus xxi, 16. S. A sluvo oould not be told under Hebrew laws. Tbore is no evidence that a Hobrew ever sold a slave. Tbaro was no slave mart or auetion-bock in Palestine. 4 A runaway slave oould not ba return "Thou shalt not deliver unto bis msster," oct. Dent. XIIII, 15. 6. The Hebrew code soenrod loiaf emaa- cipatton at certain periods; for Hebre servants every itvrnth year Exodus xxi, 2; Deut. xv, 12 ; Jeremiah xxxiv, 14 and for m. staves every nttioth year: "Liberty mrougnoui an me lanu unto till the in mutism luereoi, " ' yo snail re turn every man unto his possessions." etc Leviticus xxv, 10. II. This was statute law. ana sot a limit tne lo word "forever, In Loviiicu. xtv. 46. iu.t a. the tamo word. when appliod to the Hebrew servant Ex odus xxi, 9 was limited by tbe seventh-year uuiauuijTBtion law, 6. All slaves, ender the Hebrew code, had a large amount of time to themselves, reckoning ovcry seventn day, and every sevonth year, and tbo national festivals and religious foa.ts, thoy had about twenty three ycura in mij oi cessation iroin lanor. These provisions, restrictions and limita tions, all belong to "God's Higher Law." Let Gov. Hammond apply tbotn. Lot them be adoptod Into the southern slavo eode. No slave stolen i that would end tba for n'ign trade, which is a avaiam of fcldnaPPiic i t i ami violence. No slave sold t that would end tho intor lave trade. No fugitive slave returned that will open a uasiago to freedom, and wind op tbe tioar- roi ooui personal i loony laws. Total emancipation once In fifty years: making it a difficult matter to start anew. Four or fivo such cha.m. iu our slave hi.. tory with noither foreign nor homo traffic, would nave oreatod a tromondou. call for freo labor all through tbo South. And. lastly, a third or more holiday time to all the oppressed, while awaiting tbe jubiloe. Such was Qod's method with slavory In the Hobrew Commonwealth. Every law, ovory provision and restriction looked to too rxunciioa oi tne svstom. Aod It was extinguished. Tbero was but littlo of It In the timo of the prophets. What little tboro was, was torriblv donouncod. and when Christ came, not a vestige of tbe barbsrou. system remained in Paloitino. Tbero is no evidence that Christ over saw a slave or slaveholder. It'seomstous that Gov. Hammond has not carefully examinod the whole of the Hobrew Statute Book, and, as a consequence, uoes not luny unaorstand uod t Higher la : Natvbk'i Alphabet, Nature'a alphabet 3 ,.. ... ' . is maue up oi ooiy iour loiters wood, water, rock, and soil; yet witb those four letters she forma such wondrous com positions, such infinite combinations, as no language of twenty-four letters ean describe. Nature never grows old she has no provincialUm. The lark carols tbe same song in the tame key at when Adam turned bit delishted ear to catch the ttrain; the owl stilf hoots in h fiat, yet lovet toe note, and iceams through no other octave; the stormy petrel is as much delighted to sport among tbe waves of the Indian Ocean as in the earliest times. Birds that lived on flies, laid bluish eggs, wben Isaao went out into the Celdt to meditate, at they will 2,000 years hence, if the world does not break bor harness from tbe orb of day. The sun is as bright at when Lot entered the little city of Zoar. The diamond and tbe onyx, and the topai of Ethiopia are still as splendid; and the vulture's eye is as fierce as when Job took up bis parable. In short, nature't pendulum has never al tered its strokes. Ostentatious Grtei. It may seem a cruet word lo say, but a long iudulged and openly displayed sorrow, of any tort is ofton an ignoble'and invariably a selfish feeling, being a sacrifice of the many to the lew. it we look around on tbe circle of our acquaintance, with its percentage, large or small, ol those whom we heartily respect, we shall always find that it is the highest and most affectionate natures which conquer sorrows aoonest and best ; those unselfish ones who ean view a mis fortune in ilt result on othen at well at on their own preciout individuality ; and and those in which the greatest ospacity of loving, aots at once at bano and antidote, giving them, with a keen susceptibility to pain, a power of enduring it, whioh to tbe unloving it not only impossible, but in credible. It is tbe weak, the self-engrossed and self-important, who chiefly make to themselves public altars of. per petual woe, at which they worship, not the Dii tnaiut of departed joys, but the apotheoses of living ill-humors. .Mm LAWS OF OHIO.
