Th: Edg-Ji'l'i Baptist Association,
To Sis.'jr Cirrc<tpun(l:ng Assouiatiuns,
Sc.nictft Christian Solution,
Tlri.iivi.Mi tin i: i iiuev:?A subject of J
very grave importance now forces itsell
upon the attention of Southern Baptists,
firman.ling the full exercise of that wisiloin,
which coinrth from above, and
which is profitable to direct. We refer:
to the course, that a Body of Baptists at |
the IV -rib, with whom we have been long'
associated in the general efforts of bene- j
voluiicc, have rectntly taken. It is known I
to you, brethren, that an Ami Slavery!
Convention was held in New York in,
April last, styled "The American Bap-1
tist Anti-Slavery Convention," from which j
an Addiess to Southern Baptists was is
surd, signed by the Kev. li. trajn?nn, mu i.
President of t!ie meeting, who is one of'1
the Vice Presidents of the Baptist Board!1
f Foreign Mission, in which Address, <
we, at the South, arc warned of the hcin- ]
ous guilt of holding slaves, and urging
o purge ourselves of it, by emaucipa- <
ting them' If, however, we do not take ?
the warning, and continue to hold our <
elav?8, we are informed by the Conven- <
lion, that our people shall be excluded I j
from their communion tables, and our' i
Ministers from their pulpits. It is to be i t
presumed, that, what our Bibles have not f
tauirht us to do, the threats of our brc-,1
ihrcn at the North will assuredly fail to ! c
accomplish, and therefore, the exclusion r
will follow as a matter of course. a
If there existed no general concert of j
action between these brethren and us, this t
high handed measure would be painful, s
mortifying, deeply distressing. But, when t
it is known that, for more than twenty s
years, the Northren and Southren Baptists d
have been united in the grand Missiona- r
ry enterprise, and that God's blessing (]
has been most manifestly shed down upon f
our united efforts, such a measure is op- t
falling, and most sincerely to be deplored. \
What the result will be as to farther con- j c
ncxion between the Northern and South- L
em Baptists generally, in the grand j.
schemes of Missionary, Bible, and Tract a
efforts fs known to Him only, who "sees c
ihecnd from the beginning." s
Some Churches of our Denomination in a
Alabama have already declared, that an n
insuperable barrier is raised, by the course ' ^
above mentioned, to their farther co-ope- 'a
ration in the Foreign Missionary Depart-! c
fi>ent, with their Northren brethren, and j c
bavo advised all their brethren at the South j v
to seek a different channel for the trans- j(
mission of their benevolent contributions ! p
to the heathen. If this course shall be ; ^
generally adopted, we arc at once a dissevred
people. But before this shall be L
adopted, let us poudcr well upon its pro-1 s
priety. ! j,
It is true, that the President of the Anti-; j
Slavery Convention and signer of the ] {
Address, is one of the Vice Presidents, of! j
the Baptist Board of Foreign Missions, f
but he acted in his individual character, (|
and not as the Representative or exponent y
of the Board of Missions or Convention.
Now as the Baptist General Missionary {
Convention will assemble at Baltimore j ^
next April, would it not be more prudent; r.
and more in accordance with the spirit of j '
the Gospel, to wait until that Body shall j ^
assemble, and know whether it will sus-;.
tain the views and principles of tlic Ad- j dress
or not? If that Body shall disavow L
those principles and views, though an in-11
dividual officer maintain them, why should ,
we separate, ami seek a new channel for t
our contributions to the heathens? If they ,
shall sustain them, our course of action ,
will be clear and unavoidable. We must f
separate, and form a new Missionary
Permit us, then, brethren respectfully (
to suggest, that no action be had on this
subject before April next: that the Southern
Delegation to the missionary Conven- .
lion be then full, and that they lake such
steps, as they may deem proper for ob
taining an expression of ihe sentiments of
that Body on litis matter, and on their return,
inform theirconstitucnts of lite result,
that they may then act, as the nature of
the case shall require.
The representation of our churches has
been full. But the greater part of them}
complain of coldness and sterility. Our!
deliberations harmonious, the preaching j
good, and the weather most favorable.
We remain, respectfully yours in Gospel j
From the English B iptUt Missionary Magazine. |
The religious state of the Roman po-;
pulutiort of Ireland in its loading features,1
may sill] be described as u semper cadcm,"
wilh but slight modilications. There is
the same debasing subjection to human
authority, the same pervading ignorance
of holy scripture, the same hostility to
those who are without their own pale, the
same prominence ant! encouragement given
to tenets and ceremonies which are
destructive to the simplicity that is in
Christ, and pernicious to the best interests
of roan.
The character of the hierarchy may be
considered as descriptive of that of the
priesthood in general, where you have
all the intermediate varieties between the
mildness of Murray, and the haughty arrogance
of John, Archbishop of Tuam,
but a most united determination to resist
nil encroachments on the only true church.
There is an increasing vigilance to prevent
the diffusion of the truth, and an increasing
assiduity to gain converts to
The late extraordinary impulse, prolucing
abstinence from ardent spirits and
til other intoxicating liquors must not be
jvcrlooked. To assign this reformation,
embracing hundreds of thousands, to any
mlrltnnl r?r nrpn moral nriiteinle. seems
mpossiblu. Masses of mankind are not
lius suddenly aft'ecied; the extension of
irinciplc is generally slow and steady,
t appears to be produced by a variety of
concurrent causes; a6, the enormous uiaglilude
of the preceding evil, indicting
ccnmulaling miseries on the whole peo>!e;
the spread of information amongst
Item by the establishment of temperance
ocictics; the persevering efforts of a porion
of the priesthood to restrain the detructive
\ice; and, above all, the inci[ental
association of superstitious ideas
especling the benefits attending the benedictions
of the estimable individual who
or some time conducted and promoted
his decisive measure.
It may be premature to express a conlusivc
opinion respecting the pcrmalenec
of this mighty change when thus
iroduced, or the results which shall hcie
Iter arise; for the present it demands
iur fervent gratitude, that intemperance
hould have received so powerful a check,
nd hope may be encouraged that the belefits
derived from the suspension of debasing
indulg-ence will be so strongly felt,
s to induce a continuance in this good
ausc. There is no apparent evidence to
onnect any political design whatever
vith this pleasing alteration, which, should
t continue, may "prove nil important atixiiary
to the extension of evangelical
The established church of Ireland inludes
the next great portion nf profesing
Christians; and great as the change
as been in the Episcopal Church in Engand,
it is exceeded by tbal which has
aken place in this country. Instead uf
amentublc ignorance of leading thcologial
truths, and great indifference in the
ischarge of their clerical functions, the
Jinisters of this community have become
nlightcncd, active and laborious; adoping
without scruple, wherever practicade,
the forms and measures previously
icculiar to Dissenters, engaging in Misions
to instruct and stimulate their own
cople, and to diffuse the light and the
ruth of the Gospel. The candidates lor
he Ministry arc immeasurably superior
o those of former and not distant limes,
nit they are incumbered and weakened by
nillcnarian speculations, and counteraced
by the idea of apostolical succession,
rreparing the way lor the insidious progress
of the more than semipnpish tenets
>f the Oxford theology.
One distinct leading feature is the growng
alienation of the evangelical clergy
rom their dissenting brethren. This may
)c attributed to the rev?ral and diffusion
)f high church doctrines, and to the collision
incidental to the strife of political
parties in England.
The Presbyterian body is tvell known
to comprise a number of Ministers and
churches in Arien and Socinian tenets,
with whom the orthodox portion was long
accustomed too closely to coalesce. A
seperation has taken place, which is becoming
more extensive and strongly marked;
Presbyterian Churches have been
raised in the south where none existed,
and separate inteicsts have been foimcd
in some towns where existing ones were
known to he decidedly heterodox; the
lone of piety has become more deep and
elevated, while corresponding zeal and
activity arc apparent.
These Churches whether orthodox or
otherwise, receive considerable support
from the state, by an annual ptirliamenta1
jry grant, entitled the Regium Donum
! a Hording facilities for extension and esta
blishment, of which the principles of tin
remaining sections of the church will no
allow them to participate.
The Weslevan Methodists are unhappi
ly divided into parties, having scarcel;
any other distinctive feature, than, in one
a rigid adherence to the communion-tabl
! and baptismal service of the establish^
i church, and, in the other, the proper ul
| lowancc of Christian liberty in these re
spects. They differ in nothing from th
'English portions, except in the incrcas
of self-denying labor, greater itincran
privations, more formidable obstacles I
encounter, and the greater, need ot th
exercises of faith and patience as the;
fultil their ministry. To them must b
assigned the enviable distinction of having
preserved numbers from conforming t<
the Romish faith, and of having been th'
honored instruments in the genuine con
version of many during a long period o
indolence on the part of a wealthy esla
blishmcut; they, too, arc preparing fn:
the mote vigorous prosecution of tliei
important work, encouraged and aidc<
by their centenary contributions.
The congregational Churches, as di
videtl into Independents and Baptists
next claim attention. Except in some o
the large cities and towns, as Dublin
Cork, Waterford, Sligo, lhcse are^cithei
wholly or partially under the fostering
care of the societies supported by then
respective denomination, with exclusive
reference to Ireland's welfare: ^for e
lengthened period they must be thus 01
similarly sustained.
Protestant dissent has every adverse
element to encounter; and it was not in
aptly observed by an English Minister,
at the close of a tour in this country. "Ii
must be the praise of our brethren thai
they labored and not fainted." Their labors
are essentially Missionary; and though
not associated with many of the dangers
and privations which attend missions to
the heathen, arc, it is conceived of a much
more depressing character. The heathen
appear more accessible; they have not the
suspicion ami the prejudice of the Irish
Roman Catholic, nor arc they surrounded
by the nameless petty jealousies and
hindrances which here encompass the dissenting
teacher, be his spirit as inofiensivc
and as candid as it may; like their
brethren, in distant lands, they labor, for
the most part, alone: to the interchange
of service, to the friendly converse thai
brightens aud sharpens, to associated
prayer nnd counsel, they ore coinpara'
live strangers, they have not the resources
ou which to fall back in time of need, tha
sustain, their English brethren.
l et, winic me commion 01 me majoruj
presents these claims on the sympathj
and prayers of their friends and brethren
in more favored circumstances, a compa
rison of the present with the past is suf
ticient to encourage in a course of patien
pcrsererancc. The expenditure, the toil
the privations, and the severe exercisn
of mind, which must accompany evangcli
cal labor in Ireland, have not been unpro
ductive: On many a benighted district ha
shone the light of life, it has penetrate!
the cabins of the peasantry; awakenei
the spirit of religious inquiry in the mind
which Popery appeared to have hermrti
cally sealed, conducted the tremblin]
soul to Christ as the only refuge, and iIIu
mined with peaceful rays the departinj
spirit as religion consummated its gloriou

c the convolution of the small intestines,
" I Other medicines only parliully cleanse
f j these, and leave such collected masses be,

all its train of evils, or sudden diarrhoea,
with its imminent dangers. This

after death : and hence the prejudice ol
