The North Carolina Baptist convention at its last session adopted the report of a committee concerning the religious instruction of people of color. The committee recommended two modes of instructions Reading to them the scriptures and preaching to them the gospel. They think that in every Christian family a it were easy so to fix the time of family worship that our slaves at least once a Day May meet with us and that few Heads of families would find it difficult at such times impart to them religious a in addition to this they say a Little or no loss could be sustained by calling of our slaves from to Weir labor for a i Hoar or two every week for the purpose of Reading and explaining to them the scrip tires. We ask any candid Man who knows what human nature is How exacting Are the duties of every Day life the amount of Tine usually spent by christians in family Devotion &c., &c., How much Worth will be the religious instruction generally communicated in this Way a one or two hours every week devoted to expounding to them the scriptures How efficient so much time at so Short inter Dsa How can it help proving effective on minds so Well prepared by previous Reading and meditation and at a time so propitious called off from their labors just when the Man released from his toils is in quite a passive state open to every passing impression unless perchance he should Glide off. Into a refreshing sleep seriously How can reasonable men expect the Brief general exercises of family Devotion and an Jour or two of re Gigious from this office. How often must we remind our friends to Send papers to individuals of their of the propriety of writing their own name on the margin so that it May be known whence they came.

Why we oven import we Are ashamed same time they cover their minds with Gross darkness Aud suffer to ice to have no will of their own in a word they would Malte their slaves religious beings in Obe Iliesco to conscience while All the while they Are aiming in obedience to interest to destroy two of the essential elements of religious character Ira Ell Gerwe and win. How much More Christ Vandike and philosophical is the conduct o the Maho Medan Prince. First a school then the Reading of the Bible by the scholars themselves. Here we have a basis for religious character. The committee next Speal of the preaching of the gospel. A they do not intend to Recor Ament separate religious exercises for their the slaves special Benefit a and yet reason says that the of All other people require exercises specially ile voted to their Benefit and a special amount too of such exercise s. The committee think that provision May be made in every House of worship for their comfortable attendance. A often a say they a a have their hearts been grieved at witnessing the inconveniences to which they the slaves Are subjected in attending to the preaching of the gos Pel. Freq july they Are altogether exclude from the House of god and most generic Day where an apartment is assigned to them it is too Small to Hoid the half of those who would attend were suitable provision made for their accommodation. We have italicised a few words to draw special attention to a few things in this confession of the religious disabilities imposed on slaves. Our readers May now be curious to know what is the grand machinery recommended by the com it Mittee for elevating character Ltd the negroes. It might be expected that in View of their most lamentable destitution some peculiarly energetic and decided measures would be taken. The following resolutions with which the committee conclude their report jul Telf us All about it. A Breve we that this convention affectionately urge upon Tho new kippers printed in this i Luis purports to Haite been of fired by George James. Its object in a wicked move and a silly one. None but a wicked Man would deprive his neighbor of an unrestrained expression of his opinion. None but a Simpleton Wald expect to effect any thing useful by a movement like this. Is there any body in Muski Ngum county who would shrink from subscribing an abolition petition for fear Grange James should Send Robert Boggs Mathew my a Leheny and or. John Hamm to ascertain fee fact and make it Public not one old woman would be deterred. And without the meeting to Back him or some other support it is not Likely feat George James would venture to commence inquisitor by peering this question at the Moat squalid tie Gro he might meet. Save me always from the Contact of a poor Knave who shows his persecuting propensity Only when he has a and Storrs two of the most indefatigable agents in All the anti slavery ranks. A a whereas Thia conference has heard with Surprise and much regret that the Rev. O. Scott of the new England conference and the Rev. G. Storrs a local preacher have come within our Bounds and Are engaged in delivering lectures on modern abolitionism and promoting the formation of anti slavery societies within the Church and in the prosecution of their objects they Are in the habit of i neighing bitterly against the settled order usages and discipline of the methodist Vopai Church to the great injury and emt Efi ment of the Church and to the wounding of her peace therefore resolved that this conference strongly protest against the conduct of the said o. Scott and g. Storrs on the subject of Modem abolitionism and the formation of anti slavery societies within the a March and with the title of the Church and that we Law testy exhort our Brethren and friends to refrain fro tif Lifty act or deed which May favor the plans and objects of the said Scott and Storrs and that we. Earnestly recon mid our Brethren and fiends to discourage the Obj no and Pena of the said Scott Aud Storrs on the subject of modern abolitionism As they tend to disturb the peace and Prosperity of the Church within our Bounds. Resolved that a copy of this protest be forwarded to the new England conference and also to the presiding elder of the Oneida District Oneida conference Rev. E. Bowen Utica n. As the conference stepped somewhat beyond the Ordinary sphere of its duties Why did it not pass resolutions of censure against or. Smith of Virginia who has threatened the Church with i. Visi Oit because the general conference wow elect a Sli holding of against ministers and members in the South who defend slavery Asah institution in accordance with gods word alas for that prejudice which discerns danger in the advocacy of free principles but finds no cause of alarm in the a blushing defence on Bible grounds of a system which involves in its consequences the violation of every one of the commandments of god congregation of excited men to Back him. We shall be very much obliged to George James Robert Boggs Matthew Milleny and or John Hamm if they will carry the last Resolution into effect. We have for some weeks been seeking intelligence respecting several particulars among which is the number of petitioners to Congress in Ohio on the topics alluded to in the Resolution our opponents in other parts of the state Shouk think fit to follow the example of these four Wor thy patriots they will Confer on us a particular . Phil. J a rights of coloured Book of fads in a by William Yates. This is a Book of facts authorities amp a. With which it will be Well for abolitionists to acquaint them Selye s. Alton. If Alton has been generally benefited by the revivals that have prevailed there we shall expect to Sec her resist the claims to office of such men As John Ilgap u. F. Linder Criggs and Cyrus Edwards. These men Are now seeking office As a Reward we presume for the porn Merit testimony to the intellect and morals of the coloured . Or. Mathias governor of Liberia in a recent letter to the n y. Commercial advertiser says a a your Colony is marching Onward Ima very satisfactory manner Pur courts of Justice our merchants a our military men fully satisfy me that the mind of a coloured Man is equal in every respect to the White Many a when left to pursue a course untrammelled by others a governor Mathias in his journal As reported in the colonization Herald says after noticing a Public meeting of the colonists re the remarks made were not distinguished it is True for grammatical accuracy or parliamentary etiquette but lean say that for Good sense patriotism and respectful deportment they were equal to any body of men brought together in a country place in the United states for similar object. Part they took in the Knob Tunis actions. John Hogan is a local preacher in the methodist episcopal Church a merchant and now a candid ale for a seat in Congress this is the Man that rallied the spirit of misrule and anarchy in the celebrated meeting just when tie eloquence of the indomitable Lovejoy in the pc Wal of gaining a Complete Triumph Over his enemies. U. F. Iii Ider is Jiow a candidate for the stale legislature. Doubtless he trusts in tie affectionate remembrances of his mob associates. A Criggs is the opposition candidate. He a indeed i Seldom no fee minutes connected wife it to us Feek influence to have to of our brooms from new England when every farm so folded in Alt the places of worship ample and comforts might raise a surplus in fee Genoa Corners where a a Sheds die accommodations for fee coloured pert of their co Grega Grade his style of culture.

The culture of silk of fee Vine and roots for Stock food though the have attracted some notice have not received merited attention. We have Only specified some of our errors in order to promote to Endeavor to Correct them.

Many subscribers who have not paid will have an Opportunity of discharging their obligations at Tite coming anniversary particularly if they should be delegates otherwise they can transmit their monies by those who shall be delegates. We Trust this hint will be attended to and we would specially urge upon our heal agents the import Ikse of availing them Selver this it Siiple of Mahomet. A Smalek Kassern Mearaa a persian Prince who visited the Rosie Fonaries at oor Miah some time since has established a school at his own tepid once and appointed an american priest to teach it under his own superintendence.

Now a Maho Medan Prince inti uces fee sacred volume into his own a drool this intelligence is Given in a letter from or. Grant pub Lis bad in fee Marion Are Herald for fee present Rel. Tel Only see How the editor of the Southern religious Telegraph rejoices because a Peraian Prince not Only reads the Bible himself but a puts it into the hands of his own subjects and we too rejoice How much better this is than a Oral instruction a How much better off these subjects of a Maho Medan Prince than the slaves of Southern christians the Prince does All he can to enlighten his subjects teach them to read and make them familiar with the Bible the slave Holder does All in his Power to Darken the mind of his slave prevent him from learning to read and make him a stranger to the Bible. A when will the editor of the Southern religious Telegraph and Bis Brethren follow the example of teens. Resolved that we also urge upon All our Brethren to particular regard the the religious instruction of their own raves. A Vreto Ved that by religious instruction be understood verbal communications on religious subject. While we Are on this subject we will quote five items from a report of the Synod of s.

A the negroes have no churches neither is there Sun Cieni Rosip in White churches for their . 8. A the galleries or Back seats ii the lower floor of the White churches Are generally appropriated to the Pekoe when it can be done with Corid Cnoc ice to the Whites. When it cannot be dose conveniently the negroes who attend must Catel Hite gospel As it Escollies through the doors and win dots 4. A if a master is pious the House i vants alone attend family worship and frequently pm or none of them. 5. A so far As masters Are engaged in the work the religious instruction of slaves an almost unbroken silence reigns of this vast this report was made and ordered by tie Synod to be published. The report was published a Little while ago in the Croes end journal gentes number of our paper was recently returned from Reading pa., with the following courteous message written upon it a dont you Send your filthy fanatical Sheet to h. Chase any More. He wont take it. Now mind feat or. Chase amp s a we cannot decipher the balance of fee last name. We were very sure that we had none but decent people for our subscribers and accordingly on our books we could not find the name of h. Chase. The paper he receives is not sent forgot for a time their eolo Tice it now. Speaking of their capability of self government he says i thought i saw in fee circumstances before me the Public meeting and fee resolutions and Spee Enes that a coloured Man was capable of governing himself and that they do not differ in Intel Lect or even Enterprise from their White Brethren who have enjoyed no greater advantages of education and self Golemi Keiit. C7 it seems to us rather a round about Way of doing Good to Send men to Africa to educate them in Liberia the Bieth Odist Church has 7 Day schools with 221 pupils. Well we Are glad of Feis but these children could have been educated much better Atid at a far less expense at isme. What if the methodist Church should raise As much for the education of fee coloured people in Feis country As they Lay out on them in Africa would it not equally praiseworthy Ohio abolitionists have is lab listed 27 schools among the coloured people of this state and we presume there Are nearly 800 scholars in attendance. They have Quot done this quietly against Strong opposition at Kitle exp Iise and with no Parade. Why should the churches be Mote unwilling to engage in Feis work than in the business of instructing a few coloured persons who Are colonized some thousands of Miles off the editor of the Delphi Oracle attempts to be pleasant in his remarks on an abolition meeting whose proceedings he had not the Independence to publish although requested. He compares the resolutions to a a puddle in a storm a tempest in a Tea pot fire Frith and fury a this gentleman forgot a very important thing which is that he who would employ ridicule to effect must possess at least a modicum of wit. 17th in the Senate or. White presented fee resolutions of the Tennessee i Egis lature in favor of annexing Texas to the Union they were read Laid on tie table and ordered to by printed in the House or. Shields presented the same resolutions and moved to refer them and All others on file touching the same subject to a select com Mittee. This motion together wife fee whole subject a Laid on the table. In fee Senate april 17th, or. Preston gave notice feat he would at an Early Day Call up the Reso fusion on fee subject which he presented several weeks ago. Too we Are informed is a Mobo crat Hon. Cyrus Edwards chairman of fee committee that introduced the mis called Compromise Reso unions and who wife other respectable citizens gave countenance to Lawless violence is now candidate for fee governorship. So much for Honor and office in or fact we state on the Auto wry i Pispa the resident in Alton. Hardly said he a Qiyi ilm body of Lovejoy cold in his grave before fee subscribers to his paper were called upon by an agent with fee request Feal they would Transfer their patronage to the Western Pioneer. When it is remembered with what bitter animosity this paper spoke of abolitionists during fee reign of terror and what o dastardly silence it preserved on fee death of Ito Ejoy we cannot but regard such a request As peculiarly Gross mean and insulting. Anti atoll ton in the methodist bal scrotal Church we Are very much mistaken in the signs of the times if the authorities of tie methodist Episco Al Church have not come at length to the full determination of putting Down abolition in that Hody even thou Gli it should require the expulsion of its adherents.
