Shiuh Ratie Northern slaves. The slave of the Southern oligarchy arc not Only the coloured men and women who toil on their Plantation. Thousand of them Are found in All the free state wherever the influence of government patronage extend. Die number a happily rapidly diminishing but so Long a there Are Poat offices and Cus torn Houe be tilled by an administration controlled by the slaveholder a the race will not become extinct. They submit without murmuring All the indignities put upon them by their Southern Maat Cra and submissively per Orin All the degrading offices required of them by Tho a whole favor they Are indebted or present or whom they look for future Reward. Many of these abject beings have heretofore held Acata in the Agate and National legislative bodies where their services have been of vital importance their masters but a fearful mortality in the past few years has so thinned their Ranka that they Are now unequal the services at their bands. La Eaines this class of Northern slave there a another lower in the male of humanity and of which the class we have adverted Are the Driver and overseers. This i the Clai which senator Wade of Ohio alluded in l a speech in the Senate March 13, in w h he adverted the remark of senator Hammond of South Carolina in Lel Tiou Northern slaves. Said he slut the senator spoke about a degraded cow. In the great commercial cities. 1 have less there is some truth in that. A have a degraded Clasa in the cities. They Are the Otbo outings generally of the Ltd world men who come Here reduced by. Gary by their ignorance reduced Beggary by their vice ignorant vicious dangerous. I do not deny it. They Art incident All Large cities but the senator should not com Plain of firm. They Are the chief Corner Stone of your political strength in the North. me the vicious Ward of any City that docs not uphold your system of slavery Vole for its candidates support its treasure and labor for its men. No sir you should not complain of this vicious population. Iii truth and in fact they Are about the Only Atay and support you have there now and you ought not Traduce them. From their very natures they attach themselves you and i do not think by any treatment you will be Able drive them off. They Are naturally with you they were slaves in their own you utities the do not know anything else than be the unders trappers of somebody and when they Bear that Here Are slaveholder contending with tree Meu you find them with the former All the up on wednesday of last week we wer 1 ii aured. On entering the court House we served that 8. Allen k�q., of Kittery a making an a Eal the jury in Behal of the Cole Lloys who were on trial for an attempt murder. Or. A.

The jury brought in a verdict of guilty which far a we could observe waa received with indifference Aud subsequently were sentenced several year hard labor in the state i Ripon. We were told that the person who waa found guilty in betting lire the buildings in Shapleigh waa when the act waa committed under the influence of rum Aud indeed with a single exception in All the cases of crime tried at Thia court rum had More or a a do with them. We had the curiosity make enquiries Relativo the increase of crime in our county and Learned that it was nearly four fold greater in 1837, than it Ai in 1801 Ana i of. The jail in the county Baa been overflow ing with criminal and a vat proportion of tia increase a directly traceable the per Nicou influences which the almost untre trained Aale of intoxicating liquors have had Over the Community. The expense which the tax payers Are subjected growing out of Thia increase of crime a very Large sufficiently cause alarm and Call for Home Atrin gent mean of Relief. Any Paraon who will take the trouble make the enquiry i 1 tin 1, that even eighth of All the expense paid by the Public for the detection and condemnation of criminal originates in Tho intoxicating cup. We merely make mention of these things now that the tax Payera in our county every one of whom a culled on pay his pro 1 portion of this unnecessary expense should Ponder Over the matter a a Thema Elvea if a j state of thing which not Only preys in their j House but spreads far and wide Tho Inot de i moralizing influences ought continue.

You May be come a Christian now and go Home your household and be enabled a a a Blessing at your table Day you May stretch Forth your hands the amazement of your Wile and children and like a Christian Man ask a by casing on your dinner though it be the first time in your life you May go Home night and be in family prayer where the found of your voice in prayer was never heard. I am going urge you this course and take it at once. Hut what Doc being a Christian most Doe it guarantee a Man that shall never in again or Desiro Ain j not it All. It is not a guarantee of Saint shop in other word. Well what i it he a Chriatian ? i Don know any Way define it better than by that Law of love in which Christ declares i Liou halt love the is re thy Tod with All thy heart and mind and soul and strength and thy he thyself and the Man who can come into this Large state of True love love upward and love collateral love god and love Man i understand that he has become a Chriatian.

Then Why do you Call him a Chriatian and not a religious mini for Litis very reason religion i the offspring of conscience and Awe he a Christian requires the worship thro love. A Man May worship through Awe or through a sense of duty and 1 think there Are hundreds of men ill the churches now who ate Only religious men and not christians. They love by conscience they love by a Bond bound by a tie by fear. Their life a literally one of service they Are fatally servants of cod not in the sense in which the words Are largely used in the scriptures meaning Sim ply disciples of Christ but they Are most literally god a hired men or worse god s Bondmen. So that 1 have been accustomed say my people when Earons United my Church from other churches that Theta St work i had do was turn them out of re Ligion into christianity make those who were Belore Only religious men now truly Christ s men.
