My dear m a so your congregation Liaw been favored with the presence of several four candidates on four consecutive sabbaths yours dear must be a very attractive Field and rather a critical one it would Sceau inc none of the four a a gave up Post some liked one. And some another that is usually the Case. I have heard Adies say that la shopping they were al ays at a loss to choose a dress or Collar r a piece of lace when a great variety was laced before them. And i have heard some acknowledge that the confusion had d them at last to take the ugliest of the it. There is also a sort of proverb among Ood Steen that is not altogether without its str Etiene so a he seeks through the oods and takes a crooked stick after ail when god has called a minister to his est or when the Devil has driven one from Field of labor the first thing that Aston Shes the vacant congregation if it be an eligible a one is the number of ministers to Are willing to Fly to them for their fort and edification. Some happen to passing that Way some Are just then siting friends in the neighbourhood some me with letters of introduction from the ofes sors some have had a private inv Tion from one of the elders. In some Ery eligible churches the influx of canid autos becomes at once embarrassing and arming session and the expedit of a a a stated Supply a is adopted As a of barricade pulpit with the Veniene of a wicket Gate for letting in regularly invited. But generally the Oei plea in a peaceful sense of course a a an open Field and fair play a prevails.

Saturday nov Ember 23, 1861. Whole no. 478. Father who a a is commonly accurate in his suggestions expressed a doubt of the fact above alleged Viz., that a the leaders of the Southern rebellion Haci avowed their purpose to found their confederacy on perpetual hereditary slavery. In proof that i did not misrepresent the Southern sentiment a Cimitile As a specimen to quote from a speech of Alex. Ii. Stephens. Vice president of the Confederate states delivered at Savannah March cd 18i�l,. As reported in the Savannah Rcpt Koan As follows a a the prevailing ideas entertained by Jeff Gisob and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old Constitution were that the enslavement of the a incan was in violation of the Laws of nature add that it was wrong in principle. Socially morally and a fins idea was the prevailing idea at the time. A a these ideas Viz. Of Jefferson and the leading statesmen of his time a a Mere wrong. Our new government is founded non exactly the to sustain and extend this shameless abandonment of scriptural principle and of the almost Universal sentiment of the civilized world the Southern confederacy has sprung into being and. Hundreds of thousands of Southern fanatics Are in arms for. The Over throw of the freest and Best government on Earth. Anti fanatic. P. So it May be proper to add that the last general Assembly As Well As a Previ Ous one. Declared. A a the act of 1818 to be unrevealed and still a part of the Law of the Church As when this was said last May. In answer . Misstatement of the Synod of South Carolina selected a Home.

Now by revers these reasons you have a equal sum of considerations that incline people to pleased with a candidate. And yet Ither in the one Case nor in the other do lie very near the real scriptural qual tons of a Good minister viewed either preacher or pastor would not expect a congregation to Call Wuister without hearing him although ight be done i am persuaded without Ding to greater mistakes than Are made the Kauai dating plan.

Ill i have time to say now of the evils lilting from the current style of Candi of Allegheny my excellent and revered father who objected m that body had no doubt overlooked the documents. In regard latter part of the paragraph presented to Synod Viz. That certain Southern ministers had declared it to be a the providential Trust and Mission of i the Southern people to conserve extend and perpetuate their system of negro slavery a i do not recollect that any objection was raised in the Synod. But lest the authorities May not be familiar to some of my Brethren allow me to present a few Brief extracts As follows a a the Trust providentially committed to us Quot the Southern people at tins june Ture is to conserve and perpetuate the m Stit ution of Domestic slavery As now exist a for us As now situated. The duty is plow of conserving Aud transmitting the system of slavery with the Fri list scope for its natural development and Extension. A without determining the question of duty for future generations a what say you to this to whom this great providential Trust of conserving slavery is assigned ? a it is this that makes the crisis. A it establishes the nature Ana solemnity of our present Trust to presence and kans wet our existing system of Domestic servitude with the right unchanged by Man to go and Root itself wherever Providence and nature May carry it. This Trust we will Disch amp Ige in the face of the worst possible peril a Rev or palmers Sermon of november. I860. In a similar Strain Rev. Or. Thornwell says a a if therefore the South is not prepared to see her institutions surrounded by enemies and Wither and decay under these hostile influences if she Means to cherish and protect them it is her Bounden duty to resist a a secession becomes not Only duty. A a the principle is at work Aud enthroned in Power whose inevitable tendency is the death Knell a of a a let us crush the Serpent m the a a under these circumstances How can any maa question either the righteousness or the necessity of secession fee the South has acted under a those mansions made ready for you and for me. And Jesus our Saviour our brother is there no so shall oppress us. No death Pam nor care. But melodies sweeping from Angel harps Roll a Welcome of Triumph to each ransomed soul. Best Best. Best.

He says Quot i offer to go to America Asau in ostentatious missionary of peace during a publicdife.1 which Quot now extends Over thirty three years i have never solicited offers of any kind for my self from either Kings Queens viceroys or ministers but i am mow disposed to solicit "the1 situation Tot unpaid envoy Between the contending1 sections of the american people and it will be the proudest to mph of my life if i can succeed .in., restoring peace Between the disunited members of the great american family whose most vital interests Are so deeply injured by this internecine War this no doubt is Well and kindly meant and no one can treat it either with anger or contempt. But it is not to be supposed that there is any room at present for mediation in this awful contest when the North is throwing its whole heart and strength into its vigor on prosecution and when the world Waits with sad and painful expectation for an Issue which come How or when it May. Will be the winding up of a chapter of Anglo Saxon history never to be erased from the memory of Mankind. If Quot Liberty is thus Horn in the South she will indeed have received a baptism of blood and that is the is3ue which the morning Stai unlike most of its Cotenie ovaries who desire but do not expect it. Still confidently anticipates. It writes thus Quot Day by Day the real Issue becomes More distinctly defined for our own Par teas we have not entertained the slightest doubt As cause of the War so we hat e always foreseen and clearly indicated the Only Means by which it could be brought a Atista Torill to a close some sceptics avow their grave doubts whether there is any connexion Between slavery and secession according to their theory the struggle is Between free Trade and Protection and peace might at once be restored by a modification of tariffs. We have repeatedly exposed the hollowness of this delusion. The strife which slavery has generated pm Only terminate with it i extinction. The Star then proceeds to comment on the speech delivered by the Hon. Charles Sumner at the Republican. Convention at Worcester m Massachusetts As a a one of the most significant events of the american it continues thus a a it must be borne in mind that the meeting was not a gathering of abolitionists. It was a formal assemblage of. The Republican party the members of which Quot were greatly divided on this question but a Short time ago a few months since on f a Small minority could have been found openly to advocate negro emancipation and those who most eagerly denounced the a tension of slavery into new territories shrank from meddling with it in. The regions where it already held a recognised existence. The War has brought a wondrous change. It has opened the eyes of the Blind banished the scruples of the doubtful and dispelled the fears of a the timorous. All have hoped to recognise the Ioe during whose existence there can be no Hope of peace. A a who would have ventured to prophecy a year Hack that an orator at a meeting of the Republican Paity would have dared1 boldly to advocate the overthrow of slavery a who would have been Sansone enough to., anticipate that such an advocacy would meet with an outburst of Unm ogled and rapturous applause a a a the writer proceeds to Analyse the speech tells a How or. Sumner pointed out the eradication of slavery would bring the War at once to a close How he dwelt upon the miserable subjugation in which the Federal government was held for years by the Man Selling oligarchy and hailed with Delight its emancipation from this hateful bondage which was at least one Good fruit springing from secession How a a he admitted the difficulties and response. Bill ties inseparable from the bondage of rooting out negro bondage from the land1 bade his countrymen remember that All obstacles melt away before the firm resolutions of Earnest souls. ? a a the enthusiastic assent which was evoked by or. Sumners Noble words words worthy alike of the Man and of his theme i a a cheering foretaste of the Triumph which cannot Long be deferred.

Inasmuch As he did not exp it would to questioned. It will he a however. That a a venerable ter one of Virginia s noblest Christian he roes prepared a paper which received the Sanction of the general Assembly i believe without a dissenting voice. It was m answer following Resolution submitted body a a resolved that a person who shall sell a slave a member of the Church m Good standing Aud who is unwilling to be sold acts inconsistently with the spirit of christianity and ou0hfc to be debarred from the communion of the Church. Let us hear the Assembly speaking through or Baxter the general As Sembly having taken into consideration the subject of slavery think proper to make known their sentiments. A a we consider the voluntary enslaving of one portion of the human race by another Assi a Gross violation of the most sacred rights of human nature utterly inconsistent with the Law of god totally irreconcilable with the spirit and principles of the gospel of Chris. Slavery creates a Paradox in the moral system a a a scarcely leaves them the slaves the Power of moral action a makes them dependent on the will of others for religious and whether they shall know and worship the True god and enjoy the ordinances of the gospel a a perform the duties. Of husbands parents and children preserve their chastity and purity or regard the dictates of Justice a and humanity. A the evils to which the slave is always exposed often take place m fact and in their worst degree and form and where All of them do not take place still the slave is deprived of his natural right degraded As a human being and exposed to i the danger of passing into the hands of a master who May inflict upon him All the hardships and injuries which inhumanity and avarice May suggest. At the present Day the inconsistency of slavery with the dictates of humanity and religion has hew demonstrated and is generally seen and acknowledged a and it is manifestly the Udif of All christians who enjoy the Light of the present Day a Quot to Ilse their to Trust Eai Tiest and us wearied endeavours to Correct he errors of former times and As speedily As top sible to efface this blot on our holy religion and to obtain the Complete abolition of slavery throughout Christendom and if possible throughout the world such was the Domone of the whole Church South As Well As North forty three years ago. Where then did these men of the South learn to a Call evil Good and Good evil to put darkness for Light and Light for darkness bitter for Sweet and Sweet Jar bitter a a How Are the mighty full no we recommend that the ministers of this presbytery will meet together two and two some time this fall or Winter and where the sessions of churches will not deem such proceedings improper will spend at least a week m each congregation in visitation and m preaching and if advisable they will administer the lord s supper on the Sabbath Day.

The unappreciated sky. It is a strange thing Bow Little in Gen eral people know about the sky. It is the part of creation m which nature has done More for the Sake of pleasing Many More for the sole and evident purpose of talking to him and teaching him. Than in any other of her works and it is just the part in which we least attend to her there Are not Many of her other Quot works m which some More material or essential purpose than the Mere pleasing of men is not an swered by every part of their organization but a very essential purpose of these might so far As we know be answered if. Once in three3 Days or thereabouts a great ugly Black ram Cloud were brought up Over the Blue sky and everything Well watered and so All left Blue again till next time with perhaps a film of morning and evening Dew. And instead of this there is not a moment of any Day of our lives when nature is not producing scene after scene picture after picture after glory and working still upon such exquisite and con Stant principles of the most perfect Beauty that it is quite certain that it is All done tor.

Really what the Northern states Are pouring out hair men Aud Money for now is a mystery to make the slave Power More formidable than Ever it is useless to talk. If general Mcclellan Wros the approach lug Battle it will be useless unites we free the slaves. End slavery and the Union is restored there is nobody then left in the Southern states but Union men but free White labor men a these men will Rise up As soon As the slave owner is put Down and he cannot be put Down until his property his Means his labors m a word his slaves Are taken from him and made free.
