I Now, let us sum up what is writt.in j in this paper. We have shown, (\. t i That Ham was not maiic a negro, ncilh- i er by his name, nor the curse (or the I supposed curse) of his father Noah. (2.) i We have shown that the people of In- -, dia,China,Turkey, Egypt ((.'opts), now i have long, straight hair, high foreheads, high noses and every lineament ol the 1 white race; and that tin-so are the de cendauts of Ham. (3.) That therefore, i it Is impossible that Ham could be the ] father ofthe present, race of Negroes.— i (4.) That this is sustained by tiod him- j self causing Mtzvaim to embalm his dead directly after the Hood ami to con- , linuc it for twenty-three centuries; and that these mummies now show Ham's 1 children to have long, straight hair, etc., i and the lineament alone of the white | race. (5.) That Shem, Ham aud Jap- l eth being white, proves that their lath- i er and mother were white. (6.) That | Noah and his wife being perfect in i their genealogy, proves that Adam and i Evs wore white, and therefore impm-sl- t Lie that they could be the progenitors of l the klnky-headed, black-skinned neg- i roes of this day. (t.) That, therefore, i as neither Adam nor Hani was the pro genitor of the negro, and the negro be- i ing now on earth, consequently we i know that he was created before Adam, I ss certainly and upotitivdy as we know - that the horse and every other animal ( were created before him, a3 Adam and t Eve were the last beings created by | Ood. (8.) That the negro being crea- I ted before Adam, consequently he is a ( beast in Hod's nomenclature; and being 1 a beast, was under Adam's rule and i dominion, and, like all other beasts or I animals, has no soul. (9.) That Uod I destroyed the world by a flood, for the 1 crime of the amalgamation, or miscege- i nation of the white race: (whom he had i endowed with souls and hnmortality), ( with negroes, mere beasts without souls ' and without itninoriality, anil prodiic- I ed thereby a class (not race), but a class, l of beings that were neither human uor ; beasts, (10.) That litis was a crime a- ] galnfet God that could not be expiated, ( aud consequently cuulil not bo forgiven _ by Uod, and never would be; and that ( its punishment in Hie progeny is on t earth, and by death. 11.) Tlutt this I was shown at ISabel, Sodom and Ho- t morrah, and the extermination of the < nations of the C'aiiaaniles.aiirtby (Jod's . law to Moses. (12.) That God will not i ue-opt religioiisjworship from the negro, | that he has expre.-sly ordered that no I mail having nflat nose, shall approach ] his altar; and the negroes have flat noses. (13.) That tho negro has no I 10111, Is shown by express authority of I Hod. speaking through the Apostle Ie- 1 ter by divine inspiration. Tlic intelligent cannot fail to discover : wl|o was the tempter in tlie. garden of Kilen. It was a beast a talking beast—a i beast thai talked icilitru/ii/—il'itrei|tiiroil a mbnek to make it talk (as our learned men suppose, ami n> no one could theii perform a miracle but Ood only, and If he |ii-rl'i.ni!(.-(l ihi- miracle to make a Bhtllut, ,t serpent, talk, and to talk only With Eve, and that R* soon as th* ser pent (?) seduced hive into eating the forbidden fruit, God then performed a nollier miracle to Stop his spcakini; af terward, that If this be true), then it follows beyond contradiction, l/Vof Ood is the immediate and direct author or cause of.tin ah idea that cannot be admitted for one moment, by any believer in the liihle. God culled it a beast—"more sub tile than all the bca.its the Lord God ha/1 made." As Adam was the federal head of all his posterity, as well as the real head, so was this beast, the negro, the federal head of all beasts and cattle, etc., down to creeping things—ft> things that go upon the belly and eat dust all the days of their life. If all the beasts, cattle, etc., were not involved In the sin of their federal head, why did Uod destroy them at the flood t If the crime that brought destruction on the world was the sin of Adam's race alone, why destroy the innocent beasts, cattle, etc. ? When all things were created, Goci not only pronounced tliem good, but "very good;" then why destroy these inno cent (?) beasts, eattlc, etc., for Adam's sin or wrong-doing? But, that these beasts, etc., were involved la the same sin with Adam, is positively plain, from one fact alone; and that fact is : That, before the fall of Adam iv the garden, all was peace aud harmony among and between all created beings and things. Alter the fall, strife, contention andjwar ensued, as much among the beasts, cat tle, etc., as with the posterity of Aduui; and continues so to the present time.— Why should Ood thus afflict than for another's crime, if they were free and innocent of (hat crime ? God told Ad am, on the day of his creation, "to have dominion over everything living; that moveth upon the earth;" but to Noah, after the flood, he uses roy different language; for, while lie told Noah to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, the same as he said to Adam, yet he adds, "and the fear ol you and the dread ot you shall be upon every beast of the earth, etc., and all Unit niovcth up on the earth, etc., into thy hands are they delivered." If these had contin ued in their goodness," whol ly unconnected with Adam's sin, is it reasonable lo suppose that God would have used the language toward t/icm, that he did In his instructions to Noah? It is impossible ! The intelligent can also see the judgments; of God ou this "unforgivable" sin, at the Hood, at liabel, at Sodom and Gomorrah, and on the Canaauitcs, and in his law; and they may profit by the example. They can bee the exact time (A. M. 235), when men —the negro—erected the frst altar on earth; theyhuti seen Adam, Cain, Abel, and Sctli, erect altars and call on the name of the Lord. They, too, could imitate them; they did then imitate; they then built their altars; they then called ou the name of the Lord; they are yet initiating'; they are. ycf/iro/aninjthe name of the Lord, by calling on his name.— And you, the people of the United States, are upholding this profanity. — Who was it that caused God to repent and to be grieved at his heart, that he had made man ? Will you place your selves along-side of that being, aud a gainst God ? All analogy says you vcUU But remember, that the righteous will escape—the hardened alunc will perish. The ways of God are alwagsconsistent, wlien understood, and always just and reasonable. It is a curious fact, but a fact, nevertheless, aud fully sustained by the Bible; and that fact is this: That God never conferred, and never designed to confer, any great blessing on the hu man family, but what he always selects or selected a white slaveholder or one of a white slaveholding nation, as the metliwn, by or through which that blessing should reach them. Why he has done so, is not material to discuss now; but the fact, that he always did so, the I'.ible abundantly proves. Abraham, the lather ofthe faithful, and in whom and his seed all the families of tho earth were to be blessed, is a notable instance of this truth. For Abraham owned three hundred and eighteen skives. Aud the Saviour of the world was of a slave holding nation; and they held slaves by God's own laws, and not by theirs.— how lias it been in respect of our own nation and government, the United States! A government now declared by thousands of lips, latterly, to be the best, the very best, that has ever been in the world. Who made this govern ment? Who established it and its no ble principles ? Let us appeal to history. The lirst attack on British power, and the, aggressions of its parliament, ever made on this continent, was made by a slaveholder, from a slave, state, l'uliick Henry, May 30, 17G5. Tho lirst Presi dent of the lirst congress, that ever as sembled ou this continent, to consider of the affairs ofthe thirteen colonies, and which met in Philadelphia, Sep tember 5, 1774, was a slave owner from a slave state, Peyton Randolph. The only secretary that congress ever had, was a slave owner from a slave state, Charles Thompson. The gentleman who was chairman of the committee of the whole, on Saturday, the fithof June 1776, and who, on the morning of the 10th reported the resolutions, that the thirteen colonies, of right ought to be free and independent.v(afes-,wasasiavc holder from a slave state, Benjamin Harrison. The same gentleman again, as chairman of the committee of the whole, reported the Declaration of lu dependatice In form; and to which he alllxcil his signature, on Thursday, Jtl ly 4,1770. The gentleman who wrote the Declaration of Independence, was a slave owner, from a slavo state, Thomas Jefferson. 'J'he gentleman who w.t3 selected frj their aruiii■•> as commander-in-chief, and who did lesd them successfully, to victory and the independence oi tho country, was a slave owner, from a slave atui .-, George Washing!ou. The gentleman who was preside tit ofthe convention, to form the constitution of the United Slates, was a slave holder, from a slave state, George Washington. The gentleman who wrote the constitution ol the Uni ted States (mtiking it the best govern ment over formed on earth), was a slave owner, from a slave stare, James Madi son. The Hist president ofthe L'uitcd States, under that constitution, and who, under God gave it strength, con sistency and pov.or before the world, was a slave owner, from a slave Ita/e, George Washington, aud these were all white men and slave owners; and what ever of peace, prosperity, happiness and glory, the people of the U tilted States have enjoyed under it, have been from the, administration of the government, by presidents elected by the people, of slave hvUlers, from slavestate s Whenever the people have elected a president lroin v iion-slavcholdlug state, cd-i --mencing with the elder Ailr.ms, i_.:;d down to Mr. Lincoln, confusion, wrang ling and strife have been the order of the day, until it ctiltiminated lv the greatest civil war the world has ever beheld, under the last named gentle man. Why this had been so is not is the line ofour subject. We mention it as a matter of history, to confirm the Bible fact, that Ood always selects slave hollers, or from a slaveholding nation, the media through whien he confers his blessings on mankind. Would it not be wisdom to heed it now? One reflection and then we are done. The people of the United States have now thrust upon them, the question of negro equality, social, political and re ligious. How will they decide it? If they decide it one way, then they will make the sixth cause of invoking God's . wrath, ono again on the earth. They will begin to discover this approaching wrath: (1.) By God bringing confus ion. (2.) By his breaking the govern ment intopieees, or fragments, in which the negro will go and settle with those that favor this equality (3.) In God pouring out the lire of his wrath, ou this portion of them; but in what way, or in what form, none can tell until It comes, only that Id severity it will equal in intensity and torture, the des truction of lire burning-them up. (4.) The states or people that favor this c qaality amalgamstion of the white and black races, God teill exterminate. To make the negro, the political, social and religious equal of the white race by lav, by statute and by constitutions, can easily be effected in ironis; but so to elevate the negro jure aivino, is simply impossible. You cannot elevate a beast to the level ot a sou of God—a son of Adam and Eve—but you muy depress the sons of Adam and Eve, witli their impress ofthe Almighty, down toth-lejel of a beast.— God has made one for immortality, and the other to perish with the animals of the earth. The antediluvians osce made this depression. Will the people of tho United States make another, and the last ? Yes, they will, for a large major ity of the Xorth are unbelievers in the Bible; and this paper will make a large number of their clergy deists and athe ists. A man can not commit so great an ofteuse against his race, against his country, against his God, In any other way, as to give his daughter in mar riage to a negro— abeast— or to take one of their females lor his wife. As well might he iv the sight of God, wed his child to any other beast of forest or of field. This crime can not be expiated— it never has been expiated on earth— aud from Us nature never can be, and, consequently, never nan forgiv.nby God, antlnever villi be. The negro is now free. Theie are hut two things on earth, that, may be done with him now, and the people and government of this country escape destruction. One or the other God will make you do, or make you accept his punishment, us he made Babel, Sodom Gomorrah, and the Catiaanites, before you. You must send him back to Africa or re-enslave Aim. The former is the best, far the best. Now, which will my countrymen do? I do not say/WW cituens, tis 1 regard myself but us a so journer in the land, whosJ every politi cal duty is now performed by obeying your laws, be they good or bad—not vot ing, nor assisting others in making your laws. Will my countrymen, in decid ing for themselves these questions, re member—will they rememlier, that the flr.-t law of liberty is obtdienco to God.— Without this obedience to the great and noble principles of God, truth, righteousness and justice, there can be no liberty, no peace, no prosperity, no happiness in any earthly government —if these are sacrificed or ignored, Ood will overturn and keep over turning, until mankind learn his truth, justice and mercy, and conform to them. To the people ot the South, we say, obedience to God is better than all sacri fices. You have sacrificed all your ne groes. It was your <int'f.stor.v, that God made use of to form this noblest of all human governments—no others could do it. Do not be cast down at what has happened, and what |is yet to happen— God will yet use yon to reinstate and remodel this government, lv Us just and noble principles and at the proper lime. The North can never do it. Tln--c Sl* perilous times—the impending decis ions vill be i,J tin'd !/,.,(, (.;;/ ~,/_it'._.y.

We have passed ' ttoin plantiet |to plaiiuet, from sun to ' sun, from system to system. We found ' other islands, universes sweeping ' throngh space. The great unfinished ' problem still remains. ■ Whence conies this i.nivese? lias our globe boon rol- T ling r.iorudtbe srn for BMMeIMI 7 ' Whence this maguillieeiit architect, £ whose architraves rise in splendor he- foreEus iv every direction t Is it all the 1 work ot 'chance?

Is itthe Omnipotent Architect ?— I .'so, who Is this Angnkt Being? Go s witli nic in imagination; and stand with old Raul the great apostle ' upon Mars Hill and there look around you as he did.

And yet I ' tell you thece Cods raid these Uiviui- l ttss.tbo' created under the iuspiringjllre l of poetic fancy and Greek immuglna tfon. never reared this stupendous '- structure by which we are surrounded.

She keeps him In 3 shape by continual pruning. If you 3 say anything silly, the will all'eetii.ii- 3 ately tell you so. If you declare that ' you will do some absurd thing, she w ill l find some means of preventing your 5 doing so. And by far the chief part of all the common sense there is in this ' world belongs uiique-tiouably to wo man. The wisest things a man ooin niooly does are those which his wife counsels him lodo. A wife is the grand wieldcr of the moral pruning knife.— l If Johnson's wife had lived, there would have been no hoarding up of or ange peel—no touching all the posts in * walking along the streets—no eating S and drinking with a disgusting voraei- 6 ty. If Oliver (ioldsmith had been mar ried, he never would hnvc worn that ' memorable and ridiculous coat. When- ' ever you find a man whom you know little about, oddly dressed, or talking ! absurdly, or exhibiting any eccentrici ty of manner, you may be tolerably sure that lie is not a married man; for the corner?! are rounded off—the little -hoots are pruned away—iv married men. Wives generally have much more sense than their husbands, cspe peeially when their husbands are clev- . er men. The wife's advices are like , the ballad that keeps the ship steady; they are the wholesome, though pain ful, shears, clipping off little growths ! of sell conceit. ICP Artenius Ward was out late one ' night. Here is his account of his re- I turn home : < "It was late when I returned home. ' The children and my wife were all a- ' bed.

The winder—l regret to say that the winder went up with a violent crash, 1 and a toim in spotless while exclaimed, ' "Cum into the house, you old fool.— Totnorrer you'll be goin round com plaiiiin' about your liver."

"Well, of couue, noi,'' dryly responded the husband, who was something of wag, "She should be within it.'" icy The gayest amilers are Oftett Uie , saddest weepers. MOBS COPY, A PXBODT o.v rot's 11AVEX. Once in August, wet and dreary, sat the writer, weak and weary, pondering o'er a memorandum boo'; of items used before; book of scrawling head-notes rather—items, taking days to gather them, iv hot and .nl try weather, (using up much time and leathar.) pondering o'er. While \, ■■- c'iiii'd them, slowly rockiug (through our mind queer idea," 5 Hocking,) came a quick and nervous kuecUtngM-luiooklng at the sanctum door. "Sure, that must be Jinks, we muttered—"Jinks that's knocking at the door, Jinks, the everlasting bore." Ah, well do we remind us, in the walls which then confined us, the 'cx i'i..'tii.'e.,' lay behind us. and before us, and around us, o'er the door."

Here we opened wide the door. But, pliancy now our* phe links, for it wasn't Jinks, the bore- Jinks nameless evermore ! But the form that stood before us caused a trembling lo come o'er us, and memory bore us back again to days of yore; days when Items were in plenty, and where'er this writer went he pick ed up items by the score, 'Twas the form of our "devil," in ait attitude un civil, and lie thrust hi.* head within the door, with "The foreman's out of copy, and says he wants some more." Yes, like Alexander, wanted "liio.e."' "Now, this "local"had already walk ed about till nearly dead—he had saun tered through the city till his feet wore sore—walked the street called Dauphin, and by-ways running oil into portions of the city botli public arid obscure; lus examined store and cellar, and had questioned every "feller" whom we met, from door to door, if anything was stirring—any accidents occiui ing—not published heretofore—and met with no ; success; he would rather kinder guess he felt a little wicked at that ugly bore, with his message from the foreman that he "wanted sonu-iliing more." "Now it's time you were departing, you scamp!" cried we upstaring; "get you back into tho oflici—ofllee where you were before—or the words which you have spoken will get your bone.ail broken" (and we seized a cudgel, oken, that was lying ou the lloor.) "Take your hand out of your pockets, and leave the sanctum door; tell the fore man there is no copy, you ugly little bore." Quoth the devil, i'seud him more." And our devil, never sitting, still is Hitting, still is Hitting back and forth i upon that landing just outside oursanc turn door. Tears adowu his cheeks are streaming—streaming light from his ■ eyes is beaming—and his voice is heard, still -.creaming, -Sir, tlie foreman wants some more !" And our soul, pierced with that screa ming, Is awakened from its dreaming, and has lost the peaceful feeling it had before; for the fancy which comes o'er us, that our reader's face before us bears the horrid word—"We want a lit tle more!" Words upon their fore head* gleaming, " Your funny columns needs n little more."' cubious faith! The only devil worshippers known to exist are the Ye/.idis, a race oi people living in Armenia. They were former ly Christians, were converted to Ma hoinincdanisin, and now, apparently disgusted with both faiths, have beta ken themselves to diabolism. The theo ry of their priest is that although the mighty angel Satan, the chief of the an geilc host, at present has a quarrel with God, jet a reconciliation will hereafter take place, and he will be restored to his high rank in the celestial hierarchy. This is the loundation of their hope, and they consider themselves perfectly sale iv trusting their destiny to it.— Among sucli a people the profane phi-ax.' "Go to the devil '" would ol course be considered as an expression of good will. WILLIAM TOUHS COP-IT. This is the name of a very new and prolific variety brought almost to per fection under the continued culture of Mr. William Young, of the Plains.— The Clinton Patriot says : The corn was raised from what is known as the celebrated "Mayo Gray Corn." We are informed that several years ago, Mr. Gray commenced the improvement in rendering his corn pro lific by selecting those stalks having the largest number of ears upon them, and then planting the top ears, and in this way he soon succeeded in raising fifty and sixty bushels to the acre, and even as much as one hundred bushels per acre. We tire, satisfied from the samples before us, that one hundred bushels per acre ca.ll easily be raised by fait- cultivation noon our best hill lands- Icy What ll higher and handsomer when tho head is ofl?

The Xew York Tribune says butler factories are rapidly increasing iv tho' ' State ol Xew York. Water-powergon - orally determines the site, though steam is generally preferred to water-power. A cold and copious spring is well nigh indißpcu.sible. A large reservoir-like cellar is dug iv the ground and tightly walled viiih planks. .Broad platform* extend into this, (hutting on two or three feet of water, constantly renewed from the spring. Iv the reservoir deep pails or cans arc set and tilled thrie fourths full of milk-they sinking and lloating in a like depth of water. The milk remains here twoniy-four to thir thirty-six hours, when the cream is tak en off and churned by steam or water power, six to twenty-four churns being Operated, lit Olice, with no draft on hu man mu-Jcle. Tho butter thus made is of such uniform aud superior quality ils to bring from live to ten cents per pound more than fair farm dairies will command. A very fair quality of cheese is made ol the milk after it is skimmed. There is no better country in the world, adds the Richmond Whig, for daii.es than the Valley of Virginia.— Loudon, Fauquier, Rappahannock, Or ange and the counties adjacent are ad mirably suited for the same. Those who make butter have always some thing to sell, and accordingly always money iv baud, which is not the case with these who depend on crops. Vir ginia should furnish not only all her own butter but should partially supply the demand from the South. .Let our country friends think about it. A VALUABLEBECIPE FOB HOBSirWTVES We find the following recipe for mak ing "the best yeast in the world" in a late number of the Rural _N'«w Yorker, and commend it to the trial ofour skil ful housewives: Boil ti pint bowl full of hops In two gallons of water, strain and add a tea cupful of Hour, one of brown sugar, and a teaspoonful of salt. No yeast is re quired to raise it. Let it stand threo days in a warm place, and it will then begin to foam. Then boil three pounds of potatoes, mash fine, and add them to the yeast, and stir the whole well to gether ; then put it into a jug and cork tight and set in a cool place. It should be made at least two weeks before us ing, and it will keep good any length of tlnja, and grow better all the while. A small teaeupful is sufficient lor six loave3 of bread. When this is gone, make a new jug full in the same way, and keep It corked tight, aud you nev er need go to baker's or brewer's fur yeast. Since writing the above my wife opened a huge bottle full of this yeast that had been sealed and put in the cellar for more than a yum; and the usual quantity raised her bread splendidly. GOOD VIWEGAB FBOM BOTTEH APPLES. The idea prevails among many far mers that rotten apples are worthless, and hence suffered to go to waste.— TEti is a mistake. If they are not dried up, they arc just as valuable for vine gar as sound ones. To test this, two years ago, after gathering my marketa able apples and all that would possibly answer for cider, before they were fro zen, I went through the orchard and picked up a huge load of rotten apples —there were not among them a bushel that had anything sound about them, and many of them had been rotten for weeks. These were made up as usual. The juice at first was quite bitter and unpleasant. It was put into the cellar, it remained until spring, then removed to an outhouse and remained until fall, at which time the bitterness had all dis appeared, and it was a pure, pleasant tasted vinegar. W r e have used it in the family for a year past, and never had better. I have sold it to my neighbors, and they pronounced it lirst-ratc. FARMING AS A BUSINESS. The Rural Xew Yorker has a cor respondent who is discussing the ques tion whether farming is profitable Ho writes that "this question is fre quently propounded as though thero was a doubt about it. But there is none. In the aggregate it must pay, else all other vocations must be speedi ily abandoned. Fanning is the base on which the social edifice rests, and Its remuneration to indivldiuals depends upon the intelligence which guides farm labor. With some, owning to a lack/if money, the information essen tial to success, or to an improvident use of what they have, farming is not remunerative ; but with the mass tho 1 ease is different, and each year shows In the aggregate increased accumula tion. Fanning, therefore, like other ! business intelligently and systemati cally pursued, pays,and If failures hero r and th re occur, as in other pursuits, they are the exceptions, while general success Is the rule.''
