bably involve Greit Iritain, Russia,
Austria, Turkey and France. In
all these countries taxation has been'
pressed as finr as the people can
bear it. Everywhere the complaint
of over-taxation is so loud and gen
eral that the sovereigns must 'pause
ere they feed public discontent by
increasing the public debts. We
have seen wihut Great 13ritain owes; the
annual interest on this debt amounts to
?2S,000,000, or inore than halIf the
while revenue of the realm. The
other leading States are thus indebted:
Russia C.122,170,000; Austria X183,
'100,000; Turkey 6.6660,700; France
.221,70,000. None of these States,
eveept Great Britain, could obtain
a loaU of any atmnount-certainly not
.a war loan-upon anything like
reasonable terms. Atustria, Russia,
Russia and Turkey have lately failed
in their respective efforts to borrow
money. ,Nor can France have bet
ter success. No moley, no war. Tile
indebte'dness of the great European
States renders theii praetically
'bnund over to keep the peace.'
Brook, editor of the New .York Ex
press, in one of his letters from Geor
gia, mentions the following facts:
"Ii Savannah, in three Baptist
churches and one Methodist, there are
2,990 colored per,8 one-half of'
whom are slaves. The pastor of one
of the Baptist cliirhes is a slave, and
the other two are free colored persons.
These churches contribute liberally for
foreign antd domestic Inissions, f r
home poor, &c. At the Georgia Bap
tist. Association, held in Wari en coui
ty last Selpternber, five slave preachers
were present, aid voted upon all ques
tions presented for comnsideration. Ii
South Caroliin there are more than
f'orty thiusand slaves who are church
nieinbers; and in the entire South the
Baptist anld methodist churches already
have 2-1,000 slave iimeinhers."
