Our reideri are aware, that there has existed, in certain parts of the'tlothin^ district, in this Riding, a coinbiiialion aitiohg the blanket weavers, called the Union, which hk� fi^ed a minimum of wages, below which no loeifiber pf ihe Union is to be allowed to work, and who further insist oa iiBposin^ certain liiuit!) ou the qaau' inerisnir- �vii.. biicces.*, ami in aiiMiiC j two hours llie mob were dis(,ersed, with,ml lunn;--� cinnioit'ed any miscliief.

A considerable time lias elapsed >ince we adverted in our coluiails lo the pro'-'eedings vf tin* Hiost interesting tiud itnporlanl S.icicty ; yft il U8 r*!al pleasure to observe, titat it not iilently gaiiiinjf jround in various directions, and we sincerely had it �> the 1 ar-binger of tlie iicco[n()lishriieiit of that blessed penoJ " when nation shall no longer lift up sword atrBJnat iialioii, nt-iiher shall ihey learn war any more." The Socitly has lalely published uni.rlli Irset, compritiiig a .sermon pre.iclied by the {{..v. tJa'vid Bojfue, D.D. in 1SI3, three years before the formation of a Peace, Socieli/. We regret that our limils ito not allow us to jiive it entire, and it ia difficult lo k>:lect any part from a work, the whole of wliich in sn rxcellem ; liiit the followiiig^striking iiluslr-dtioii of !l>e crt'i tt< likely to be produced by the practice oi' pacitiir principles, is so complete a reply to a very fiopulur objection, tliut we hasten to lay il before our ieai!er�. The objection to which we allude is ' that if a nation-fur example, tlih lo tchkli we /ie!oni(, utrs to act upon these principle<i, unci refuse tu sjo lu war, it would soon be sicallowcd up by other nations." Great Drit, i of peaceuble inl.nbi-taiits, consisting of fathers and mothers, sons ami daughters, and infants at the breast, have been buried under the ruins of their dwellinj|;s, or dashed to piece* in the streets, while the surronndu.g country has been mouriil'tilly desolated. What is the elfect of this warfare ? Every survivor's hear! n filled with hatred of the invaders, and burns with revenge. The same spiiit he conveys down �� uii inheritance to his children; and let it he remeui-hered, * thai those are tio little enemies." L-t us suppose, that instead of such an arma-^ ment, our vuleis were lo commission siiips laden with corn, and clothes, and mmiey, at only half the amount of expense-and to accompany the gift with a letter to the government of� ntiglihoor-iiig country to this effect; "I'hrough the gond.ness ofG'xl, we have had an abundiiit harvest, and hearing that you heve not, we send a present of coni to the widows and fatherless, the orphan, the blind and the lame. As many of them may be unpiovid-ed with raiiHSiit fur the inclemency of winter, accept of the clothing which will he delivered to you hy out fleet, and divide amf>ng Uiose who are in the grealest distress, the money *hicli our iiies-Sengera carry lu their hands." What infi woiild such conduct have upon the-people of that country > Would it leave any stitigs behind Hi their soul-.No. It would concilialS" the esteent and affection of all. Tell them after this, -Biiiain wishes to injure�J'ou."-" No," they would say, " it cannot be; it is impossible th^t the people of th;;t land should desire to do us harm." Command thein to buckle on their armour and wage w,ar with thf English. They would answer, " We cannot light wilh ihem: the weapons' would drop from our, Iwnds: we love them too well to hnti them : cnn-tiniie in peace." If any slate would act in this way toils, neighbours, it would have no enemies: the sound of war would not be heard iu ifts dominions. -fPiymouth I'apci.J
