T and though the Clouds of mystery press around this thorny Vale still Waits and walks and works by love the Faith that cannot fail . The papacy against England. England Ever since the reformation has been the object of papal hatred. The idea of either her moral Conquest or her National subversion has been steadily cherished. Spain was stimulated against her till she was broken by her self dashing against this Rook. Much of the hostility Between France and England has been excited from the same Quarter. Rome a decree is that England must be destroyed. This purpose is to perish Only with Rome a utter fall. A the political cordiality arising from state policy Between France and England is not to end ice if papal ingenuity can destroy it. In the London Christian times under the head of foreign intelligence we find the following a it is curious that the universe which is the leading Organ of the clerical party has been for the last few years the most War like of the whole Paris press. The universe is the first to evoke the spirit of hatred to revive angry passions that had Long been lulled and prejudices that had been dying out. It is the universe the advocate of religious duties and observances of humility and All the Christian Virtues that first grasps the trumpet and blows the loudest note of Defiance. The very name of England seems to set it wild and judging from its language it would repeat the part of Peter the Hermit and preach a crusade against us All Over Europe. In an article on the subject of the a confessions of Belgravia a it explains the of aus of its animosity against England thus a we Are Aeo ubed of being the enemies of England j yes we Are. Undeniably the foes of protestant England because we Are aware that protestant England is necessarily the ally of the revolution necessarily the enemy of France and of All nations and naturally the greatest obstacle to the conversion of the Heathen and to the civilization of the world. But we do not deny qualities not of the English character which is changing More and More but of the great number of englishmen. It is by these qualities that eng land maintains her strength and Power but these very qualities Render her the More dangerous because they Are devoted to evil objects. We do hot see the necessity of depreciating the Power of England which is however less than is believed but it is because she is powerful that we assail her with Energy. The world will never recover substantial peace until England shall have become roman Catholic or shall have ceased to be a first rate _ it closes with the following Christian like advice a with England no Alliance is possible. The nations of the Earth ought therefore to come to an understanding and hurl against her the famous sentence of the roman Senate a Delenda est Carthage for tha Banner and advocate. Liberia and French. Emigration. My. Editor i have read this morning with deep regret the opening sentence of the article in your Issue of the 24th inst headed it is this a we Are sorry to see by the papera that president Benson has been guilty of i very great in discretion if not of a positive this assumes the guilt of president Benson As proved. This in my opinion is Hasty. It is pre judging the ease i wish to state s few facts demanding As i think in Justice a suspension of judgment for the present. Upon what evidence is president Ben son pronounced guilty of the charges preferred it is chiefly sex Parte. It comes from interested angry frenchmen. The Only testimony of a different character which has come to my knowledge is that of or. B. V. R James published in the new York daily times of july 17th and some things reported by that paper As from or. Roye and or. Chester All liberians. Of these i have to say that what or. James is made to say is wholly without his knowledge or consent and the editorial comments betray a lamentable ignorance of the whole matter of which they treat so knowingly. Let me to the Publia Eye what was Given me in to privacy and Confidence of Friendship the statements Here quoted show How much the averment of the times is Worth when it says a by his or. James a a admission the assent of president Benson was in the first instance secured for buying or stealing the negroes a amp of. Amp c. Here the impression made upon nine readers out of ten is or will be that president Benson knowingly As sen Ted to the a a buying or stealing of what a monstrous travesty of the testimony of an honest Man or. James May have admitted that president Benson gave his assent to the procurement of emigrants for neither had he any reason to deny this nor president Benson any reason i had better say Power to decline it. To make this Plain it will be Neo essay first to state a few facts according to my recollection of them., a few y ears since both British and French vessels wore transporting emigrants native and liberian for labourers in the West indies and the Guiana. The British i believe for some time have relinquished the shipping of african Are. Satisfied with asiatics. The French have continued it. Facts came to Light which gave cause to suspect that some were procured in liberian territory without their free consent. To a prevent this a proclamation was issued by the liberian government requiring All vessels engaged in this business within the Jur Isdio Tion of the Republic to report themselves at Monrovia before leaving the coast in order that they might be visited by an inspector authorized by the government to ascertain whether or not All had enlisted of their free consent. In borne cases this order was complied with in others evaded complaints were made for this evasion. The Trench government partly on account of these requisitions and complaints and partly of account of the interference of the British government in the matter at the instance of the Republic became so incensed that they refused to deliver a vessel of War which had been offered years before and fitted up when the duly authorized commissioner of the lib Rian government presented himself to Reivo her. Meanwhile the Emigrant system was progressing. In the last annual message of the president december 1857, the subject was brought to the notice of. The liberian legislature. This resulted in the passage of the following enactment which providentially oame to my hands yesterday in a pamphlet containing the acts of the last a legislature. Though Long i give it entire for the satisfaction of your readers an a regulating the enlistment and transportation of emigrants. A a it is enacted by the Senate and Home of representatives of the Republic of Liberia in legislature assembled a a Section 1. That from and after the passage of this not any Perton or persons coming to or residing within the jurisdiction of this Republic wishing to engage in enlisting and procuring emigrants of native africans for transportation to a foreign country shall before engaging in said Enterprise appear before the Secretary of state and present to him the credentials from the government granting him or them the privilege of enlisting and procuring emigrants As aforesaid and shall also present a copy of the conditions and terms which he or they offer for the encouragement of emigration which credential and. Conditions shall be Laid before the president and if judged proper and Legal the said person or persons shall appear before the attorney general and enter into Bond with approved Security to the Republic of Liberia in the sum of Twenty thousand dollars for his or their faithful compliance with the Laws of the Republic and especially to such As relate to the enlisting of emigrants within the jurisdiction of the Republic said Bond shall be deposited at the office of the Secretary of state and the person or persons thus complying shall be granted permission to enlist emigrants. A a Seo. 2. It a a further enacted that the master super cargo or agent of any foreign vessel arriving on the liberian coast and wishing to engage in the enlisting procuring and transportation of emigrants of native africans from within the jurisdiction of the Republic of Liberia to any other foreign country before engaging in said business shall comply with All the provisions Laid Down in the first Section of this not and shall enter his vessel and cargo at the port of Monrovia county of Mon Serrado As the Law directs for the entry of foreign vessels and cargo arriving on the said coast. In a note of Only 17th, or. James writes me this morning a to my astonishment and mortification i found myself arraigned before the Public in a ridiculous Light. A a few Days ago i gave or. A written statement in part of the Mutiny amp of. I did not sign it. I Only wished to help him in preparing an article for one of the papera of this City which he then had in contemplation. I made to him verbal and explicit statements relative to this affair such As would had they been published As made to Beni have exonerated president Benson and the government of Liberia from the wicked and malicious misrepresentations of the French and the american editors who seem to Side with the French state ments of the affair. Now for him to make such an ostentatious display of my name in a Public newspaper without my knowledge or consent is intolerable i have a Quot. No desire to appear before the pub lie and especially like an a this com. Itman cation has made me to 0 i Trust i shall be pardoned for bringing a eighth ninth and tenth sections a nevertheless emigration in All cases shall be confined to such Porta of entry As Are declared such by Law passports being in All cases required As Are by Law provided for. A Useo. 8. That any person or persons coming to or residing within the jurisdiction. Of this Republic engaged in enlisting and procuring emigrants of native africans for transportation to a foreign country shall re Olive Only such persons As emigrants As shall of their own free will and consent Home Forward and Volunteer As emigrants after the conditions and terms of emigrating Are fully explained to them and further no person shall be received As an Emigrant who shall be presented bound with cords or in any other Way or who from fear threatening or coercion of other persons has been compelled to offer him or herself As an Emigrant contrary to his or her own will and further any person or persons who shall Volunteer As an Emigrant shall not be Oon fined in cords chains Irons stocks prison House or in any Way contrary to the Laws of the Republic in relation to the rights of Oit Zens and further there shall be no House established within the jurisdiction of this Republic for the purpose of confining or keeping emigrants in of body. A a Sec. 4. It is further enacted that the master super cargo or agents of any foreign vessel arriving on the liberian coast or any person or persons coming to or residing within the jurisdiction of the Republic of Liberia who shall proceed to enlist and procure emigrants of native africans for transportation to a foreign country contrary to the provisions of this act on conviction thereof before any court of competent jurisdiction shall be fined in a sum of not less than two thousand nor More than ten thousand Dol Lara at the discretion of the court determining the Case and the vessel or vessels receiving such native africans on Board shall be proceeded against according to the. J Geo Ond article governing navigation Commerce and revenue.�?�. It will be been from this act How much president Benson who recommended and approved it and the liberian legislature which passed it Are disposed to favor forced emigration or indeed emigration at All. It must be Plain that by this act the whole business is guarded against abuse and so encumbered at every Point As almost to amount to a prohibition. That this was its design there is Good reason to believe. See letter below that this prohibitory position was not taken is a cause of regret but not of just censure upon the liberian govern ment. They would not take that ground with any Hope of maintaining it while the French government was intent upon procuring emigrants the hands of the British government tied because engaged in much the same thing elsewhere and our own government Luke warm and uninterested in the matter. So must the weak conciliate the powerful. A a Only one Point is wanting and this whole matter is Olear. It does not appear when this permit to enlist was obtained. If after the passage of this act every charge against president Benson is i Ojust. Admit that he gave his assent that he even took the 1,564 piastres and he did no More than the Law authorized and compelled him to do. He could not refuse his assent when the terms of the act were complied with and he was obliged by the very act to exact the common fee for passports As in other eases. A according to Admiral Hamelin a report As cited by lord Malmsbury in the House of lords and As Given in the new York times it would appear that the a a Regina Cadi arrived at Cape mount on the 29th of last i was at Monrovia myself from july up to the 15th of december last year and was there again in March of this year and i am sure no such transaction took place at Monrovia before the Date first mentioned december indeed it would have been better for Admiral Hamelin to have suppressed dates altogether Aste would thus have avoided a most stupid contradiction. The vessel arrived in october i the president entered warmly into capt. Simon a plans. A the enlistment of emigrants was carried on with the greatest facility and the greatest care under the superintendence of the liberian authorities As Well As the agent of the French government a and to 1 on the 9th of april six months after the arrival of the vessel two Hundred and seventy one emigrants had arrived in the Road Stead and the rest of them were ready to this is shipping emigrants with the a a greatest facility a truly. If is Only equalled by the blundering comments of the times which actually makes the Mutiny to have taken place before the ship had reached the place where the emigrants were taken on Board. But enough enough. Much Light is yet to be shed on this subject. Let not the american people Stu Latify themselves by pre judging the Case on testimony wholly unworthy of credence. Let them Bear in mind the counsel Audi parted alter am. We can afford to wait. Truth will out. When sure of that then let Justice be awarded upon whomsoever it May. Fall. D. A. Wilson principal Alex. High school Liberia. A a be Vickky pa., july 24, 1858. The following extracts from a private letter dated Monrovia May 19th, received yesterday from a former Pupil of the Alexander High school a youth of Christian character and for some time since the private Secretary of president Benson will show his feeling on this Point. It is scarcely too much to presume considering his intimate relations with the president and Cabi net that he Speaks their mind also. As the first part of the letter gives a Fuller detail of the whole matter than i have seen elsewhere i give All relating to this subject verbatim it literati it punctual in As it came to me. the since your departure from Liberia a fact of very great importance has transpired. The French Emigrant ship Regina Ceceli was in the Vicinity of Roberts port grand Cape mount recruiting labourers for the French colonies on the 9th nit., a Mutiny broke out inboard the emigrants murdering All. The Crew that were aboard eleven a the doctor who was their favorite they sent on Bhore at the to me the Captain French government officer and a few others happened to be absent at sugared. When the news reached Monrovia the Secretary of state made a requisition for volunteers men volunteered to recapture the vessel but the Lark and Bur other larger boats being away they could note conveyed to Cape mount. On the 14th nit., the mail Steamer Ethrope arrived in port the Captain on requisition from the French Consul left for Cape mount and on the evening of 15th towed the vessel into this Harbor he considered her his prize and placed a prize officer on Board of course the French Captain Simon remonstrated against it stating that the vessel had not been abandoned. On the 1st inst., h. B m. Steamer spitfire arrived in port on the 2d, h. I. M. Steamer a a be Daimy the fallow Deer arrived on the. 4th,-h. I m. Steamer a a Rena Din a came having on Board p. Puntel the chief of staff of the French naval division on the West coast who represented by special a delegation the French Admiral the first not this Man performed Frenchman like was to Send on the 5th, the French Consul his discharge on account he alleged of his conduct toward the unfortunate Frenchman of the Regina cedi. A the English commander Campbell declared that the Frenchman should not fake the ship out of Harbor during his stay on the 4th, be aim left the authority other Captain being superseded by the arrival of the staff officer on the 7th inst both parties concluded to bring the matter into court and consequently the English a commander our marshal having been placed on Board of the Regina cad left for Palmas to the Relief of an English trader there in distress. On the 8th. The Frenchman fully satisfied that the English had actually gone to Palmas went on Board the Regina Ceceli with five boats and about seventy men armed to the Teeth and ordered the marshal ashore a Saemg that the vessel was French property. A a it is True this was a great indignity to the liberian government but if the French were inclined to not so dastardly and if the two Hundred and fifty men and probably the prevention of the prosecution of the Trade on our coast in future a a we can submit to the indignity fully confident that our stand in the whole affair will be approved by the civilized world and if eave the event to god. A a the affair will soon taker National turn.

The House of lords after yielding last week to the pressure of tto a commons and the persuasions of lord Derby As to the admission of jews into parliament the very next night under the same premieres leadership reversed their ,. And threw out by a Large majority the Bill sent up from the lower House for the abolition of Church rates. This is year becoming a More and More vexed and vexatious question. The dissenters under the guidance of Edward Miallo editor of the non conformist for some a time in parliament and Likely to go there again a Man of acknowledged ability and of one idea in reference to this matter have made such Progress in their assault on Church rates that their abolition is Only a question of time. Lord Palmerston not Long before his fall treated a a deputation of their body with scant respect if not positive insolence and that was not forgotten when the decisive vote that upset his Cabinet oame to be Given. Blit now the Premier insists that old Church fabrics in Rural districts will go to ruin and that unless there be compensation provided there can be no abolition allowed the rates say the tory lords come off the lands virtually and their abolition would Only in the end swell our rent Rolls by amp off having to so much Lebs per annul and we do not want any such result. But it is a fact that in the rates do not come off the lands they Are in towns just what he hateful a a annuity tax is in Edinburgh oat of which the City clergy of the scottish establishment receive each �600-per. Annum., by a majority of one Only did the latter tax escape abolition by a vote of the House of commons and the Edinburgh clergy a graciously see that with a minority of population i their churches a a Eom Lucknow.

A 11 promises their Only Hope of being thrown on the voluntary principle of support. Well As to Church rates and the Peers Compromise a also and. A settlement on the principle of a meeting dissenters half Way a is proposed by the Bishops who plead hard and with some Justice for poor Eler a men in Rural districts in the matter but the result of the conduct of the lords is to make them very unpopular. They go on the a a Zig Zag principle a of making a Concession to Day and of refusing to undo heavy Burden to Morrow. With what vigor did the the lash next morning after the division on the Church rates Bill 1 and then two Days after it assaults lord Derby again showing what a Golden Opportunity to make political capital he has lost and pointing out that the Peers have nothing before them but a disgraceful Concession of what they now so sternly deny. Thus it writes a we hardly think the principle of refusing a Liberal measure to Day because you conceded a Liberal measure yesterday of fasting on Friday because you feasted on thursday of listening to policy one Day and prejudice the next will be Likely to conciliate to lord Derby and his government the support and Good opinion of the country. No Man can serve two masters without making both of them his enemies and establishing precedents which Aire sure to be used against himself. Lord Derby has not pleased the tories nearly so much by refusing the Bill for a the. Abolition of Church rates As he Hab offended them by accepting the Bill for the admission of jews into the new India Bill fat the form in which it goes no to the lords makes a less sweeping change in the government than was expected. Although the company is abolished and the proprietors lose All their former Power the directors revive udder the name of Counselor assisting and advising the Secretary of state for India with numbers slightly diminished and with salaries �1200 per annul largely increased. The government nominees on the Council As Well As those to be elected by the Council once constituted will be probably those who Are now most prominent in Leaden Hall Street London. But under the new regime the Secretary of state unlike the past presidents of the Board of control will be Able at his pleasure to assume the initiative. This has hitherto in Ordinary cases been reserved to the court of directors. Again the Crown i. Ethe ministry in Power selects without Check As at present the governor general the governors of presidencies and the commander in chief and of the members of the different councils in India the minor patronage As to civil and military Cadetships will be much the same As a present and the difficult question of the re organization of the Indian army and its transference to the Crown is postponed. Much will depend on the character of the men who work the system both Here and in India and As i have often said in my letters there is reason to Hope that christianity will find an increasing number of Faithf til representatives in connexion with the future government of India. Outram is now on the Council at Calcutta and a nobler More patriotic and More disinterested Man there cannot be. As to his chivalry a and courage and skill his whole career has affair has resulted in the liberation of about borne testimony especially his Quot conduct at a a a a a Fuwk a i u now by sir Colin a forces was Outram a. We know what a High smiled spirit he displayed when having the right he refused to take Superior command Over Havelock but placed himself under him till he should Complete Bis career of victories. In a Brilliant Eulogius pronounced on. Outram the other Day at the India House by Captain Eastwick a Christian Man and a director it was mentioned that Outram was so unselfish and conscientious that he refused to accept although a poor Man a Rof a Large f a a i of Cly it 91 h a it i 1 j 9 i sum of Poinde prize Money and had made it Over to Benevola a it institutions in Bombay. The directors a voted last week to sir Colin Campbell and toi sir James Outram a annuities of �2,000, and of --�1,000, respectively. A sum also of nearly �12,000, per annul a s been awarded As pensions to the relatives widows others and Sisters of those officers who perished in Battle or were massacred. Large bodies of troops Are being dispatched from England to India. The waste of climate alone is terrible both among offi Oera and men. The Bombay correspondent of the times describes the fatal effects of the. Fierce Sun on our Brave troops sir a Rose the Gallant captor of Calpe in which were found ammunition and other stores Worth three Laos of rupees was in one Battle three times struck Down in one Day by the effects of the Sun. In one fight the enemy Only injured two men but the Sun killed fifteen. This was in an infantry regiment which Only arrived in India last autumn one thousand Strong but which in the Middle of May Only mustered five Hundred and fifty. The people of the United states Maywell be thankful that they Are not sending their sons out on a earn pain from which Many a Fine youth would never return or from which returning they would bring with them the seeds of premature old age. War is indeed a terrible waste of life As Well a As treasure and this a Indian strife seems far from being ended although its Issue is certain. I have lying before me a letter from a Friend formerly an elder in my own Church and now employed in Western India to open up the Rivers which he formerly surveyed As a naval officer to navigation and Commerce. He writes from Kur Rachee on the 22d of May. He writes thus a England i fear is not yet fully aware of the task before her. Since the Rescue of the Lucknow Garrison we have done Little More than taught the rebels to fight. I Hope the europeans May be housed at once that you will not delay reinforcements andr then,1 when the cold weather returns with a Strong army and some Twenty flying columns we maybe Able to give a Good account of the mutineers.�?�. As to the atrocities committed by native troops but denied or questioned by some on both sides of the Atlantia my correspondent adds after having remarked a a i regret to be obliged to say it but -1 conscientiously believe that severity at this moment is mercy in India the natives Bate us and by trucking to their prejudices we merely make ourselves a a i am amused at the endeavours which a certain party Are making at Home to prove that the sepoy have been guilty of nothing worse than murder. After conversing with some officers who went through the whole of the , ones to hear of the appearances which the corpses of our men when recovered presented All evidence proves that whenever they have the. Opportunity and time enough they not Only mutilate the remains of our people but no doubt do not wait till the spirit has fled to do a to be respected we must go Forward As a Christian nation and instead of sympathizing with either Hindo ism or mob am a Meda ism we should give both a old toleration taking every a Opportunity to hold Forth the truth As it is in Christ . A a a. I was present last night in the commons,1 at the passing of the India Bill. Palmerston beaten in attempts to alter the Constitution of the Council gave his. Cordial adhesion to the principle of the Bill. This was received with cheers. Little waspish or. Roebuck denounced the Bill As lord John Russell looking Hale and Hearty in Fine temper and in very Happy language said he a did not join in the of . He. Considered that there were Many redeeming features in the Bill which he thought a great improvement on the past. Of course there were Many questions requiring future profound study and careful legislation such As the tenure of land As Well it As the land Salt and opium taxes. Finally up Rose the Chancellor of exchequer Disraeli. With a care worn look and older in aspect than last year who congratulated and thanked the House in connexion with the Hearty support a which had been Given on All sides to the government. He referred to a the principles of truth and As the foundation of our future Indian Empire. But no one said a word in reference to our future relation to Hindo ism and mohammedanism As to the support of their temples and mosques. Lord Stanley has won great Praise and admiration in his conduct of this Bill he is of fair complexion Sandy hair has Gray eyes Speaks with an Effort lips pushed out and evidently with some1 decided defect in the palate or cartilage of the Nobe. He looks a Dull person but is very Clever and is the most rising statesman of the Day. He seems free from his fathers Derby a fiery temper. Holyoake and Cooper have recent been disputing publicly on the great subject of infidelity or christianity in the City of York. Formerly As you Are aware they were fast allies in the ease of scepticism but now Cooper sits at the feet of Jesus clothed and in his right mind. A striking tribute to christianity was recently borne by him at Halifax. He maintained that those who doubted never thought and Eon damned the calling of a a sceptic a an inquirer or Doubter a a an infidel a it being merely a term of opprobrium. As to the. La your n3sge, i find Iva words whose orthography is different from that of English writ Era the one is that of a a sceptic a american and a a sceptics . is a it Raj sell re a a English and a a traveler ameiican�u8gge., i try to write a a Sec Eption and a a Travier a but i , with difficulty Randio Niy in deference to your readers. Which is right. A. Usage a i Sidh is the arbiter of language,.is still variable though it has nearly decided in fax. Vor of the the one Len a n to. T a a checking of free inquiry to blundering the. Ology the oppression of the poor and the question of a moral evil Cooper also pointed out the varieties of scepticism and alluded to the great want of Unity among its adherents. He then gave an interesting account of his career his declension into infidelity and his return to christianity to his Earnest Faith As a methodist. It was a very Earnest Faith and he knew no old Friend Flthe Pelej. Or. Jobson Haff Hever deserted him. Up Ben Ever he oame to London he Folind him out and with prayers and tears he followed 11101. He had returned to christianity and he i d not care whether he was sneered at or not he was once More a praying Man and a Happy Man. More than that,.he,intended to be a preaching Man and to carry this gospel god helping him through England. Cooper is a Man of real it Genius of thorough honesty and of pure life so that his deliberate return to christianity is a heavy blow and sore discouragement to the Seon to Lariat cause. Between him and Holyoake at York expressions of. Mutual Courtesy and. Respect were interchanged but the latter and his party feel very sore no doubt at Coopers position and alarmed it his in Flenoe they try by discussion to mitigate the effect of his evangelistic a career. If Holyoake is an honest doubters Whoso Guitelli but that he too Ere Long May be brought captive to Emmanuel sleet a once it is asserted this Man was a Sabbath school teacher at Birmingham and1 sat under the ministry of John Angel James. I a. Fairchilds Book on baptism the receipt of which from the author i beg through you gratefully to acknowledge is Well calculated to rebuke arrogance if not to put it to silence. I rejoice most sincerely in its publication and for he nest doubters on a. Disputed do not a believe that there is any , a so compact so. Lively and so telling to be found. Or.
