The dedicttory sroi a'n, an ilteres ing and
instructive one by the Rev. Mr. JIEaT.Ell of
Darlington, was tomieid on the first verse
of the ard chalter n Thessalonians, ", i

of the Lord may have free course, and lie
glorified, even as it is with you." Prayers
were oficred by the Rev. Mr. MAsON, of

TheIm Usury Laws.
One of' the quest ions of the age is
undoubtedly the repeal o f the Usury

bold and futile relief upon the statute

reported unianknrously on the inutili~ty
of laws regulating the value of money
and in favor of the repeal of all res

pIIenlent sovereignty, united together
only by bonds of mutual affection and
interest, and whilst all power rests
with the pet pie, yet may brothers, it
may be delegated to agents, who un
der various sanctions and responsibili
ties may exercise it in the name and
by the authority of the people. It is
upon this branch of your sovereign
power that. the present change proposed
i:s designed to net, and to immolate on
the altar of the people's rights, this
revered and long established maxim
of your fathers.
Brothers, awake, this change. is un
called for by the people, and should
the leaders of the party who advocate
such a measure persuade you that the
moral and intellectual improvement, of
the masses by whom it is to be exer
cised is competent, believe them not.
I further charge you my brothers, to
remember that if this principle is once
sanctioned it immediately becomes a
precedent, yes my brothers, it will be
a step-stone upon which some future
usurper may take his stand, and under
tie very colour of the law, destroy the
Constitution itself. Such my brothers,
have been the follies and vices into
which other States of the uni ii have
fallen. They have been tearing away
stone by stone from the beautiful tem
ple your fathers erected and thus have
destroyed the very Government they
professed to :ave. B others, they have
walked far and bold in the fully of
their own hearts, for already 1' ye they
turned the destroying arm against the
peace, h~appiness and the domestic in.
stitutions of your devoted State.
