Lie lived an exemplary life and was a worthy member for about 70 years a he great portion which time he was a useful exhort and class Leader and a part the time an acceptable preacher but this latter office lie was reluctant to fill lie removed from Maryland to Virginia thence to Kentucky where he closed his mortal / i. Career at the House his son item. G. B. Harlan the 30th Jan. Last. I visited him a few Davs before jigs death and found him perfectly resigned to the dispensation Providence. Malt is however the opinion a Large proportion the Church Christ that every True minister Jesus Christ is a moved by the holy ghost to preach Quot a the gospel. This is the sentiment the methodist episcopal Church hence every candidate for the ministry among up before he can be received by the authorities the Church is required to give satisfactory evidence a divine Call to the work. 1 he evidence which satisfies the Church this fact is the Possession three Marks Viz a Grace a ,1 and these Marks it should be remembered Are primarily evidences to the Church the evidence which satisfies the candidate the genuineness his Call primarily arises from a divine conviction upon his heart the fact that god has called him to the work a conviction analogous to that which satisfies a person who is truly a Horn again a the Eutt that he is a a child god a the conviction in both cases being produced by the same Agency Viz that the holy ghost. He is not Only a a called by this Agency but a a moved to the work As it is emphatically expressed by our Church and frequently under this constraining influence be feels to say with the apostle a is Laid upon me Yea to is unto me if i preach fat the the feelings however persons who Are truly called god Are without doubt very various being greatly varied and modified by differ in constitutional temperaments and surrounding circumstances just As the feelings different persons Are varied by the same causes under the influence genuine conversion. For this reason it has often been a subject distressing uncertainty with some persons whether they were truly called god to preach not. Such should inquire 1st, whether they can feel Clear and quiet before god in pursuing any other employment. If not 2d, j whether the Providence god opens the Way before them to enter the ministry. If so they should by All Means move Forward and not look for a signs and wonders a and their evidence we think will invariably become satisfactory. Persons Are frequently thrown into the most painful j perplexity Here by doing As the pharisees did who rejected the evidence which Christ gave his Messiah ship and sought a a sign from the holy ghost is not always often i pleased to give precisely that kind evidence j which is desired for it is now and always has been his Sovereign pleasure to a Lead the Blind in a Way that they know that such a divine Call As that which our Church requires in cart dilates for the several offices is necessary appears from the following scripture testimony Viz a no Man Tabeth this Honor unto himself but he that is called god is was Aarons a Heb. A 4. In allusion to the times the present dispensation the lord by the Prophet promised As follows a i will give you Viz the Church pastors according to mine heart a engrossing to himself exclusively the prerogative sending them. Jer. Iii 15, and Xxiii 4. In perfect agreement with these promises All the first ministers the gospel were specially called and sent Forth clothed with the authority a divine commission. It remains to be proved that a divine Call is not As truly in Portan to the ministers the gospel now As it was then. That it is not is a gratuitous Assumption. St. Paul regarded a divine commission so much importance to All preachers the gospel that he inquires a How shall they preach except they be sent Quot a a rom. A 14, 15.

At a certain time i when there was a great paucity ministers the Church was not directed to make such selections from among her members As she was i pleased to Supply the deficiency neither was she directed to receive and employ such As were merely pious and had a suitable education and were inclined to enter the work but she was peremptorily instructed to apply unto the a lord the Harvest in Earnest prayer that a the woul it Send Forth labourers into his Harvest a manifestly implying that the a lord the Harvest has the exclusive prerogative selecting and sending Firth such a la borers As he pleases to accomplish his own work.

By Gratifying expressions fell from his lips Dur and adventures that novel kept me alive ing his protracted illness and from the inform j with anxiety the whole that Day. I laughed with those who laughed and crept with those who wept. Every feeling my heart was roused As the author hurried me from scene to scene. The world All around me was forgotten so completely was my attention absorbed by the animating events that passed rapidly be fore me. As the plot thickened and the narrative was coming to a close my feelings were wrought up to a painful pitch anxiety my heart beat so heavily As to shake the Book in my band suspense became agonizing with the avidity a famished Tiger my mind seized upon each successive thought As my Eye passed swiftly Over the printed Page. The author with a master hand gives the finishing touch to his interesting Story. I weep my feelings like pent up Waters now burst Loose. I resigned myself to the pleasant and excited emotions that now like a torrent bore me away and was already beginning to play fondly with the gilded creations my own fancy suggested by the tale j had just read when in laying my Arm the table my hand which the Eye mechanically followed rested the Bible.

A 1 what is meant by a divine Call in Fois article is a Call from god to the work the ministry the being a moved by the holy ghost to a his work in such a sense As to Render it impracticable to eng go in any other employment with safety. Some question the reality such n Call others admit its reality under pc Culler and extraordinary circumstances but doubt its necessity in the present state the such think that for the Ordinary work the ministry genuine piety a suitable education an inclination toward the ministry and the approval the Church make up a sufficient Call and indeed All Fife Call that we have a scriptural warrant to expect under existing circumstances.

At first it was thought that they had met their enemies coming to invade their country hut examination it was found that they had their women and children with them and that they had drawn their canoes out the water. The War chief sent two his men to know who they were. With these messengers their chiefs came Back and told them that they were from a great distance and had been driven Back by the w Hite the party then turned Back and a Council was called and the Yari dots agreed to spread Down a Deerskin for their strange friends to sit Down and gave them All the land West the Scioto River and East the great Miami. This nation called shawnees were once proprietors James River in Virginia but were driven backs came Down the Kanawha and Ohio and settled at first at this place called Chillicothe new town new Home As one the old men interpreted it strangers new town new Home thus these fugitives from the encroachments the White Man by a deed brotherly kindness were made the owners the Roost Fertile spot ground to its size in North America.

A blessed arc they that put their Trust in psalms. Abundantly great Are the promised blessings to All those who put their whole Trust in the Strong Arm the god Israel their Faith must he unwavering and the Reward is certain. The sacred word him w to cannot utter falsehood is pledged for the fulfilment his Promise to All those who put their Trust in the lord Jehovah. This Promise cannot fail. What a vast source ineffable Comfort and Consolation is drawn from this never failing Fountain. Is the trusting Christian assailed with sickness calamities Here is an antidote an infallible remedy whose Healing Virtues make him whole. Does death Point his arrows charged with desolation this shield Faith is interposed to Ward them do the cares and perplexities attached to the Ordinary pursuits life the common results business crowd upon him with More than usual Force and weigh him Down Here is a prop which to lean. If disasters threaten and a thick dark Cloud hangs pending Over our pathway and we walk like one groping in darkness encompassed by a dense impenetrable fog our Trust in him shall carry us safely through a shall place our feet a Rock and shield us from surrounding dangers. Above All others the poor and afflicted should put their Trust in him. To them Are the promises contained in the scriptures the most abundant the most consoling. For Hehn Are his gainers Well stored we Ith provisions his warehouses filled with Choice things. They hold out rest to the weary Pilgrim and fill the soul the oppressed with Hopes Joyful Liberty and feelings exultation. Enviable indeed is the condition the virtuous Pooi since they Are the Peculiar objects kindness and the Especial care so Good and benevolent a guardian. God in his infinite mercy his upon nil occasions and under All circumstances held out to them the Royal scepter his clemency and Protection whilst at the same time their oppressors Are denounced and their Pride and haughtiness brought Low and they threatened with his sore displeasure. Blessings abundant and riches unbounded riches which corrode not nor fluctuate in value and Joys As substantial As the throne Jehovah himself Are the promises to the children poverty and sorrow. The Rich have no promised lot in these unnumbered comforts and enjoyments they Are permitted to feast their eyes and surfeit their hearts upon glittering unsubstantial Shadow alone. For them no Balmy zephyrs breathe Over their agonized limbs troubled souls. They put their w Hole Trust in their idol their Golden god a instead the living god heaven hence they Are deceived and deserted in the hours trial and tribulation. Their god Isa phantom their Trust is vain a Bubble airy not so with him w to trusts in the god his9salvation he has an Anchor in the sky a fast hold for in the god heaven he puts his Trust and in Jehovah is Iris . To the mourning penitent the sin sorrowing and broken hearted we would offer the consolations contained in numerous parts the Bible and at the commencement this article to cast All their cares Jesus and Trust to his unerring guidance put out to sea the vessel Hope shall Bear you safely up and waft you Onward let go the Strong Anchor the Darling sin that binds you fast to Earth and clogs your upward flight launch Forth upon the Ocean divine mercy and All shall be Well. Does not the Mariner Trust his life his All Board his Well built ship a draws in the Cable and commits its destiny to the winds capricious blast and the surging Waves ii the bosom the unfathomable deep in the winds and the Billowy Ocean and in the strength his hip he puts his Trust. And if the Tsariner can thus embark his All with such Strong Confidence upon so fragile a bark such weak and slender Means what should he the Hope and prospects him who leans with entire Confidence and puts his whole Trust in god. Mankind save an accomplished writer Trust every body and every thing but god. Man trusts to the winds and the Waves and to the elements live almighty god he will not put Fois Trust notwithstanding the solemn and a it repeated assurances his infallible word. Numberless instance might Beci Jed tvs la Strale and prove the undeniable fact s herein assumed that those who put their Trust in god shall never he discouraged. Let those who Are sceptical this subject who Are unbelievers in a special and direct Providence and to not credit a divine Agency examine the holy scriptures the immediate word god with a single Eye to this Point and Wilh greater care than they have heretofore done and the most Clear and decided evidences will be fully illustrated and brought into open View. We would therefore exhort All to diligently examine the sacred writings and to put their Trust in god and fear not what Man can do nor the devices the evil one. It. C. L. From the journal and luminary. Late and Correct intelligence from Liberia. Or. Brainard a the citizens our Village were last evening favored with an expose the present condition Liberia from . G. W. My Elroy a gentleman who has lately returned Fiorin a visit to that Colony made As he remarked fir the express purpose satisfying his own mind the state the Colony and the Utility the colonization scheme and with the determination making an impartial report whether favourable unfavourable. Or. My Elroy a statements were to me thrilling interest and i have thought that you and your readers would be pleased with the transmission some his facts hereby made. Extent the Colony and Fer Pilitt the soil. The american colonization society had at several times made different purchases along the coast extending Back in some parts with a definite Boundary in others to an indefinite extent in the Interior. The country the coast is a Fiat a Sandy soil bounded by Highlands at a distance from Twenty to sixty Miles the soil for five Hundred Miles North and South Monrovia is beautifully variegated and exceedingly productive. Greenness and Beauty Circle the whole year. Beyond the Highlands is a Rich arable table land. One the Colony settlements is at the foot these Hills whose sides the hand cultivation is beginning to ascend and whose Summit civilization will soon surmount. The Banks the Rivers much resemble those in the South and West. To sum up All this subject said . M., i had no Conception the Fertility the country and As lie subsequently remarked there was More danger from idleness engendered by the exceeding fecundity the soil than want from unproductive Ness. 73� and climate. The thermometer ranges Between 85�, and course it is at no time As a m As at new York in the summer. The year is Divi ded into two seasons equal length. During the Rainy season the rain Falls every morning for a few hours the Clouds then disperse and the Farmer May immediately commence his agricultural operations. Two crops Are produced in the year. That the climate was not peculiarly adapted to european constitutions was admitted and that it was even deleterious would not be denied. Yet facts could be presented which would prove that it was As healthy even for the White Man As parts our own country. He had met with a Young Man Fortune education and talents who had spent seven years in Africa and had lately returned in Good the twelve sailors the vessel in w hich he re turned who kid been exposed Day after Day to the e scorching Sun Africa and night after night to its Dews landed in the United states with invigorated health. As for himself he could say that although exposed during a residence two months More than he had been used to in this country no though he had bathed in the Rivers and basked in the tropical Sun yet he had never enjoyed better health. For the Black Man the climate is peculiarly congenial. It is physically adapted to his Constitution. He was informed by . More a respectable coloured Man who went out with the late expedition from Orleans that not one his company seventy three in number had suffered in six months residence a single attack disease. Of the expedition with which he himself . Ahad gone from Savannah sixty three in number Only two had been sick when he left the Colony. Products. Starvation was impossible in Liberia. The ens Sada grew spontaneously in great abundance it was a Large Root a taste somewhat like the Sweet potato palatable and nutritious. Or. Had lived it four Days without any other food. The plantain and banana were delightful food and luxuriantly productive. He had weighed the produce one stalk and found it seventy five pounds. The two plants were similar and perennial. The Sweet potato had been recently introduced and flourished Well and was beginning to be extensively cultivated and was much admired by the natives. To show the productiveness the country and the ease gaining a living he would state a fact which had fallen under i observation. About six years since a Man and his wife removed from Virginia. They had two children and had taken two . Had seen no industrious Man discontented. There were indeed a few Idle and vicious persons dissatisfied. Such Are everywhere to he found. Caldwell contained three churches three Day schools and two Sabbath schools one the Day schools had forty scholars. The teacher this school had been applied to while . Was there by one the native Kings to receive ten his children. Billsburg is Twenty Miles up the St. Paul sat the foot the Highlands a neat Village with two churches one school and a missionary station. I j a . My Elroy concluded with some general remarks. 1. State intelligence in the Colony the mass the people Are intelligent and elevated morals. No part the coloured population in this country is comparable to general intelligence is diffused and is diffusing. The marriage Rel Atiim is sacred and inviolable Man there feels his importance and is elevated by a just Pride character. He exercises the right an elector a juror an advocate and a judge. He had heard Blackstone a authority quoted in their courts Justice. For he improvements which had been made by the colonists be Ini Glit refer to individuals. The late vice agent the Colony is a Man Well acquainted with the common Law n Man general intelligence and thoroughly acquainted with die condition the takes a half dozen papers from this country and one from London. He has a respectable Library the Best works. There Are ten eleven clergymen All men intelligence. The present editor the Liberia Herald is a Man Superior Genius and has mastered the difficulties the latin and greek languages. His editorial columns intelligence and talents. Or. Remarked 2d. Upon the influence the Colony upon the natives. This had been decidedly Good. The natives sought the Protection the Colony obeyed its Lac a and were imitating its improvements. He made some judicious remarks upon the excessive expectations some the friends colonization in relation to the moral influence the Colony. They looked for too much and were consequently Dis appointed. Lie referred to the fact that the missionaries had Laboured in some the Pacific islands for seventeen years without a single conversion. The Good seed was extensively being sown in Liberia and would in due time bring Forth fruit lie mentioned an interesting fact a native uneducated youth who having observed the use writing had endeavoured to form hieroglyphic characters to communicate ideas. 3d. The influence the Colony upon the slave Trade. The slave Trade had been banished from its precincts the slaver would face the cannons Mouth the Ocean in defense his human cargo but he spurned the spot where the Cross had been planted. He bad himself heard a slave Captain say he would visit no More a part the coast where a recent settlement had been made and Tomt he had told King Peter so. In fact the slave Trade never would and never could be broken up but by Christian colonies encircling the african coast. It would require fleets steam vessels such As the combined Power England and America could scarcely equip and such As they never would equip. Or. A i. Gave an affecting account a company four Hundred natives chained the Shore for embarkation in a slave ship which he himself had witnessed having sailed up the coast five Hundred Miles. We have sympathized with the greek we have shed tears Over the unhappy Fate the pole and shall we not sympathize with depopulated and violated Africa in conclusion let colonization now cease let not another Emigrant Ever land upon the liberian shores yet there is already planted the germ a great Empire elements Are there to produce a government and people lasting As mind and sound morals a Light has been kindled cannot be diminished w lie Nee successive Waves illumination shall flow Over All surrounding View these facts asked the speaker with great effect is this the work the Rig lit hand the almighty is it the if Spring cruelty selfishness desirous ridding this country a portion its free Zidack population. 1 think it very desirable that . My Elroy should he employed As an agent for the colonization society at least for a time. His interesting narration could not fail to in it Duce the happiest effects and is worthy full and implicit credit. Both the Kentucky colonization society and the Kentucky Union for the moral and religious improvement the coloured race Are languishing Only for the want efficient agents. Could such be procured these two associations would in ten years undermine the foundations slavery in Kentucky and prostrate the whole fabric. May god in his Providence provide the men that Are wanted. J. A. J. Danville ky., March 8, 1836. Natives into their family. They had fenced in a piece ground not More than twice As Large As the Church in which he was then speaking.
