The working- men of this countiy have the political power in their hands, and if they wilt cercise it rightly, they will uccumplis i all that is desirable.

In all and in all' the the mentioned churches of Boston, Episcopal ch'urches throughout Massachusetts, were petitions offered up lo Almighty God, that He would have mercy on the 'souls' of these wretched men, and not only their terrible offences, but soften' their hearts by the influences of the Divine Spirit, and make them partakers in- the joys of immoital felicity. Now this is asking a good deal the hands of God. And it is to be presumed that those who officiated in his several "prayed in "for whatsoever is not of faith is sin." But how can they expect so much from God, when themselves have denied the poor sufferers so little Prayers, ardent, sincere, solemn prayers have been offered to for the "pardon aud forgiveness" of Webster Education of the Blind. Vl Jauegville, July By ft recent act of 'the Legislature of i his- State, (Session Laws, 1850, page provision has been made fbrvihe 'establishment of an Institution for the Ed- ucation of the Blind, to be located at this place. The Board of Trustees having for the miserable dismal have confidence in otbci measures; whei that confiJence ceases, we say let heroes and patnots use more congenial and foi- i-ible implements to secure the moslsc- cicd lights of man.

If there is not a place for a I at Nature's table, who shall say that in a scramble for a seat, the strong- arm of the laborer shall not prevail If we- aie asked to respect the which says it dividual property must be protected from plunder, we answer that we will; biit there is a higher law which declares hu- manity mast bg proUe'cltd froiA suffering, and starvalion! It vvilll not do to say to the necessitous and suffering laboring classes, who produce all the wealth pf the itis in accordance; with a law of nature, or a decree cf pro1 idence, that the few are to be surrounded with, all the luxuries of life, and live in idleners, while th'e many' are for the want of bread. Carry out these principles if possible, through the quid power of suffrage and the selection nf men to political station who know tte evils and wants of the masses If th s method fails, we say to the laboring clas- ses, TRY SOME OTHER. and?

Would the Christian churches in Boston and the Episcopal churches in our State grant it Would ths ministers of Christ grant it if they had the power1? By no means How then can they expect so much, mercy when they will show wo mercy. The Governor and Council were besought to allow the wrethed Pearson a few more days or 19 prepare for d-eatb, as he was unfit to die but even this favor was re- fused and yet the very man who would deny rzll mercy would look up and ask God to show mercy yea, infinite and eternal fivor.

The ground may be assumed by some, that God is not besought to pardon the offender and make him a partaker of heavenly happiness only on condition of severe repentance on tltevr part. But is liot tbis asking of God more than we are willing to grant1? Are those in favor of the gallows moved at all m favor of eacy by "the- repentance" of the guilty? By no means. If it were positively de- monstrated to theft minds Lbat Wehster and Pearson had experienced trie "new birth" and were made most truthful and sincere Cristians by the pow4r of the Holy heapU yearning' only for purity and truthfulness, it would not weigh tne amount of a feather in their minds in fevor of commutation.

The friends of thu1 pupils will be re- quired to supply them with proper cloth- log, and lo be at the expense of their tiav- elmg to and from ihe Inslitulion.

We hope to hear from you as eaily as practicable, for the reason that it may be necessary to know the number for whom provision should be made; and from ne- cessity this number must be limited until the propel buildings can be erected.
