For tin Western Christian advocate. Ltd if. Girardeau �?~distk1c i Missouri 0 n. Or. Editor a As i have just closed the labors of inv second year on this District perhaps a Sanjit account of the Progress and present state of the work of cod on each of the circuits would not be uninteresting to the friends of our cause and especially to those Brethren that have hitherto toiled arid suffered in this part of our wide spread Vineyard. This District lies in the Southeast Corner of the state of Missouri and. Of course includes the great swamp and the Lead mines places familiar to Many a Western traveler. It is composed of live regular circuits and two Domestic missions. Ape is one of the oldest circuits in the conference. Here methodism has had its friends and foes its ups and Downs its years of Prosperity and its Days of adversity. Here the laborious Thomas Wright finished Bis course and Here his enemies lie wailing the voice of the archangel and the Trump of god that shall Call them Forth. The p a is was a year of Prosperity. It closed with the shout of Victory on israelis Side. Four Camp meetings were held. They were seasons of revival and the last was held at Kendree Chapel 3 Miles from Jackson. Many things were in the Way. The ramps were not All filled the weather was quite Cool the congregation was rather Small and the ministers in attendance few and feeble from excessive labor but not withstanding All god was with us to convict and convert. About 30 were powerfully converted to god and near the same number joined the Gnu ire on trial. On monday afternoon a class meeting was held in the old Chapel. It was truly a time of refreshing. Three penitents were happily converted and the c 1 Liris inns were built up on their most holy Faith. We have succeeded in building a Chapel in Jackson and Hope the Blessing of god and the liberality of our friends to be Able to erect one in the town of a ape Girardeau during the coining year. This is much needed indeed. Others Are before us. The to maoists have a Cathedral and the baptists have a Church hut the methodists last and least Are compelled to worship in a school House remotely situated and Fai too Small to accommodate oreo narc gation. The number of conversions and tin increase on this circuit is near 100. Not a is circuit has been favored with one very glorious revival. It commenced at the Camp meeting held in Matthews Prairie. About 30 were converted and 25 received on trial. The Woik is still progressing. The Brethren in this Beautiful Prairie will be Able to dedicate a Church to the worship of god during the ensuing year. St. Good work has been silently and softly moving Forward on this circuit during the whole of this year and a part of the preceding. The former year was one of pruning the present of reaping and ingathering thereby proving that revivals generally follow the faithful and affectionate administration of discipline. The Camp meet ii g for this circuit was held at York Chapel five Miles from Perryville. We were highly favored. Tents nearly All filled weather Fine a Good Supply of ministers in attendance and a Large Rong negation of quiet and willing bearers. The Power of the highest soon fell upon us and the holy ghost so attended the word that scores of broken hearted sinners fell prostrate at the mourners Bench in the altar of prayer to receive the sympathies prayers and counsels of the people of god. A new and glorious impulse was imparted to the work a missionary meeting held on Morid in morning. The collections and subscriptions amounted to upwards of fifty dollars. Soon after this meeting the Power of god fell upon the congregation of a remarkable manner and for the space of five hours a continued burst of Praise went up from one or two Hundred voices during which time 20 souls obtained deliverance from Situ we number As the result of this meeting 40 conversions and 50 accessions to the Church. The Brethren on this circuit Are erecting two Stone churches one near York Chapel the old log building being much too Small and the other in new Tennessee settlement on the land of Rev. John m tar and one of the oldest pioneers in the state. Good work broke out on this circuit near the close of the year. The first pm top meeting held at Virginia Camp ground resulted in the conversion of 8 and the accession 10 Church and at the second held at Astor Campground about 20 were converted a to 13 added to the Church. Cuit yen e a our efforts made on this Fri sults a it to any very glorious re Himor o1�?T we Are ,l0t in despair. We Hope for ugh and Latok for brighter Days. Jilom Field rpm a ate. To it r is Quot it a prosperous b. Lle m,.8sionary, Rev. N. M Thiv Tracen number for the w Estern us Retian advocate. Letters from Bosh of . In. Brother Elliott a the Arkansas conference commenced its sixth session at Batesville november 10th, in the court House the same building in which it first organized november 1836. Very few of the original members remain. In the Short space of five years most of them have disappeared from the list deaths locations division of conference apr. But others have fallen into the breaking ranks and the conference has nearly doubled its numbers having now about forty seven names on the entire list some thirty of them members and the balance probationers. Their geographical Boundary is extensive embracing the mate of Arkansas the Missouri territory South it of the Cherokee line and a fraction of the Northeast Corner of Texas. To cover this vast extent of surface with such a Small Force we hive necessarily to form our Eire its something liter the primitive Model very Large from two Hundred to it four Hundred Miles round and leave most of them with Only one preacher consequently in Many instances the people have preaching Only once in four Yve eks in some circuits once in six weeks and in others once in two or three weeks. This Lack of service is applied to a limited extent Only he local preachers. Still Thev Are a Choice hand of 1 j Brethren an it Are accomplishing a Good and Dorious work both in the state and in the Indian country especially among the choctaws and cherokees. For particulars on this Point i refer any Yulio May feel interested to the printed minutes. The Arkansas hand of itinerant appear to he firmly invited in their purpose of accomplishing the grand object of the Christian ministry a to spread scripture holiness Over these lands a and they evidently gathered fresh vigor in tin work while met in conference to report the result of the last years labor. A on Sabbath being the Only time i had. 7 in s Opportunity to attend preaching the services of the Sanctuary were refreshing to Many. The spacious Chapel in Batesville on that Day was crowded with people who appeared to he intelligent and deeply interested. That the word preached took effect was abundantly testified fixed attention general solemnity showers of tears and numerous responses breaking from the deepest recesses of the heart. The coloured people Yvere preached to in the court House at the same hours Yuho seemed to enjoy themselves to the life. Monday afternoon some 4 f the Brethren went out to hold a Temperance meeting Ami it is said about seventy persons signed the Temperance pledge in addition to about eighty that had signed it previously. I am told there i it but one liquor establishment left in Batesville and it is doubtful whether that Viil he sustained much longer. After the conference finally adjourned on monday evening the missionary anniversary was celebrated in the Chapel. I regretted the necessity of being absent but was Happy to learn they had a meeting of much interest which resulted in raising Over $400, which was certainly very Liberal for a Village of some seven Hundred inhabitants these hard times. Nov what we chiefly need in this country is a Strong re enforcement of efficient travelling preachers self sacrificing men whose sole object is to be useful and Yuho in order to do this Are willing to give up country borne and friends travel difficult circuits labor hard peril their health and receive Only a moderate support in a word men Yuho count not their lives dear unto themselves so they May finish their course with Joy and the ministry which they have received of the lord Jesus to testify the gospel of the Grace of god. We would not deceive any brother. They who come to labor As itinerant in Arkansas should know that the Conn try is yet comparatively new and consequently Giat chapels Are scarce and parsonage scarcer that the currency is depreciated which renders it difficult to support the preachers and Goon to erect the necessary buildings and that some of a in circuits Are situated in a latitude Low and sickly though none of the preachers of the conference have died the past year. Still to such As Are willing to encounter these difficulties there is not a More ample or promising Field of usefulness in our extended connection than in Liis Region of country. And Why should the minister of Christ feel afraid to serve on any part of the Globe where duty Calls him or to remain till his we Ork is done Paul was willing not Only to suffer at Jerusalem hut if needful to die there for the Sake of the lord Jesus. There is one thing or. Editor which 1 do not understand perhaps you can explain it. Methodist preachers profess to be commissioned to go into All the world and preach the gospel to every creature and vet in some favorite sections of country they throng together in such multitudes As to stand in each others Way and crowd some out of the work and leave other sections of the lords Vineyard in a state of destitution. We have preachers enough to Supply our entire Home work East West North and South if properly distributed but some Are not willing to go where they Are most needed. Can this be fairly reconciled to a professed Call to the work of the itinerant ministry ? 1 Al Low there May be a palliation of such inconsistency in some cases arising from the opposition of friends. Young preachers Are generally disposed to do right in the matter but older Brethren who should he the first to encourage them get around and dissuade them fro a. It especially popular Young men and in this Way we Are often Defeated ill obtaining such transfers As we need from the older to the new conferences. This sort of opposition to the work is not founded in a deliberate intention on the part of senior Brethren to do wrong but in an unwillingness to part with their sons in the gospel. Still it is mischievous in its tendency. For the Western Christian advocate. Interesting letters from Germany or. Editor a the following is an extract o a letter to brother Nast written one of our Brethren who is now in Germany for the Pur pose of bringing his parents who Are roman catholics to this country. If you think it would be interesting to the readers of the advocate you May publish it. Brother Nuelson came a roman Catholic to this country ant joined our Church the first year that brother Nast had charge of the German Mission in this City. He is now one of our class leaders Anil stewards. His sister came Over about two years ago and was also converted. May the lord bring the whole family to a saving knowledge of the truth the letter was received yesterday and i in haste Send von the translation of it. Yours in Christ Adam . Cincinnati dec. 18, 1841. A dear brother Nast a from last letter 7 a to wife you have seen that the lord has brought me safely into the embraces of beloved parents Brothers and Sisters. The Joy was unspeakably great. After 1 had spoken with them concerning the Good Way Faith was greatly strengthened and 1 have More ground to Hope than Ever before that it is the Savior a gracious design to unite us in spirit As closely As we Are the ties of blood. A in Bremen i delivered the apologists and a letter from or. To the Rev. Pastor Treviranus and was invited to take Tea. On account of business i could not go before 8 of clock when i found a company of twelve or fifteen clergymen. Or. Was just Reading to them the letter of hut Stop Ped and asked me if i could hear to hear the letter read there was something in it at which might take of a Ense. I replied that i had no objections it All the lord bad More than once Given me Grace to Bear a great Deal. He then went on to read the description which i. Gave of the methodists. Or. Mentality itt saving their friends and neighbors from the Power and influence of sin. Our la therian and presbyterian Brethren have likewise been wonderfully revived and encouraged in their labors the present year and the whole sur rounding country seems to be deeply excited on the subject of salvation. Many among us who were regarded As hard cases have been melted Down the Power of divine love and with streaming eyes have approached the altar of prayer and there As publicly confessed their sins As they had publicly sinned and blasphemed the name of god. This is All right. Even in matters Between Man and Man where one Man publicly and openly sins against his neighbor nothing Short of a Public and open acknowledgement of his sin will be received As satisfactory. How much More Are we hound to publicly confess our sins to the great god of the universe. The older inhabitants of this Section of Virginia readily acknowledge that they have never witnessed so much concern in the Public mind m the subject of religion. Every Church is a creasing its members daily and not a few who Lave Tor yearn been engaged in making Tai Judd tire to Nurah up the constitutions 01 their neigh it ors have pulled Down their altars erected to a Molech and have erected in their Stead altars Ledie ated to the True god around which they assemble their families morning and evening in devout and Humble Devotion to that god a in whom we live and move and have our in consequence of the general excitement which prevails on this subject every Denom Mitia Ion Are using their utmost exertions and every me Are crowned with More or less Success so hat we anticipate the arrival of that period when the songs of Praise from the redeemed of he lord shall Echo from Mountain top to Morin Ain top of this picturesque and Beautiful Conn and when every Vale shall catch the sound and Roll in on until it shall unite with the Hosanna of those in other sections and All together ise in one grand hallelujah to the lord god minder of your lives in peace and Comfort there remember with kindness those worthy persons who befriended you in your Captivity Here an it who now furnish you with the Means of return ing Home and Tell your countrymen of the blessings of the Book which you have Given to me. May the almighty Power who has preserve and sustained you hitherto still go with you am turn to your Good and to that of your country All that you have suffered and All that May hereafter befall you. From your Friend John Quincy Adams. Liked the preaching of the methodists Well enough hut he could not Bear the exercises in the altar Ami at Camp meetings of the latter he made a dreadful picture. He also spoke of you As being very zealous to make proselytes and hoisting every sail to Erdist members for the methodist Church. On the latter Point i was interrogated. I answered that i could not deny the accusations that i myself was an instance and i thanked god daily for it. I was then requested to give them an account of a Camp meeting. The lord gave me great Liberty. When i had done they unitedly exclaimed that they never heard such an account of Camp meetings and that they now had an entirely different View of it. I Felt moved within to give them whole experience penitential sorrow and the Joys of gods salvation. They rejoiced heartily with me. Respecting the apologist i read warm eulogies in the 4 Bramer Orbaun Gorlott a a weekly religious periodical i found in Bremen Many dear followers of the Loid Jesus. Blessed be god who has his children everywhere i have glorious prospects that the lord will use me As an instrument to show to Many of former companions in sin the delightful path of salvation. O that i May become More faithful and willing to take up Cross at All times. Give love to All the Brethren. I need not ask you and them to Pray for me. The lord he with you and your brother in Christ Francis while sending you the above i thought it might be interesting to furnish you with an extract from another letter written to brother Nast a zealous Christian the Secretary of the Hamburg tract society to whom brother Nast had sent the apologist some time ago. A. M. I a c a much beloved brother in the Lordc-r�?1 tin very thankful that i became Aqua Intel with you through or. Hallock the Secretary of the Jeriean tract society. To me it is of not much difference what uniform a Christian wears he May he methodist Baptist calvinist lutheran &e., if he Only makes the Bible the Rule of his Faith and practice has living in Jesus Christ the son of god and fills to in new commandment 4 love one another a whosoever believes and does this is brother and sister. A c Lerman Brethren Are indeed in your country As i hear from different quarters like sheep without a Shepherd. I Praise god that the methodists were induced to care for their souls and that the lord has blessed their labors so abundantly. May be continue to take you and your fellow labourers under his Peculiar Protection and endow you with Power Wisdom and patience. I have sent packages of the apologist and Fletcher a Appeal to the respective Giafes i have read the apologist with pleasure and Hope and Pray that the Blessing of god it May become a powerful instrument in doing Good. In the City of Hamburg we also have a methodist minister but he preaches in English in the suburbs of St. Paul and on the English ship. He does not Call himself an episcopal methodist. Why is your Church in America called episcopal commending you with myself to tie Grace of god i am with great affection and esteem your brother in Christ John it will he recollected that Fletch Rry a Appeal has been published in the German language. Methodist in Virginia a the following remarks Are a rom the a a journal of october 6, 1841, published in Wytheville a. 44 Camp these meetings have been signally blessed during the present year in this Section. In this county and around in several counties adjoining the most cheering results have been witnessed at the Camp meetings this fall. From what we have been Able to learn from these meetings not less than 400 members have been added to the Church through their instrumentality and not Many less have professed to experience the forgiveness of their sins Faith in our lord Jesus Christ. They constitute a Means of Grace Peculiar to the methodist e. Church and have been so remarkably favored the displays of divine pm Wei and Grace that instead of flagging in their interest and attachment to them the members of that Church in this country seem to be increasingly devoted to the use of this instr departure of the Amistad africans. These interesting personages thirty five in number being All that survive embarked on wednesday for Sierra Leone on hard the Arque gentleman Captain Morris accompanied the Rev. Or. Steele Rev. Or. Raymond and m is. Raymond missionaries and or. And mrs. Wilson teachers. From Sierra Leone they anticipate no difficulty in reaching their own country which is believed to be at no great distance. The Farewell of the missionaries and africans was taken at the Tabernacle on sunday evening Ilie exercises being generally similar to those at the exhibitions held in this City and elsewhere for the purpose of increasing the Mendian fund. In addition the Rev. Or. Jocelyn in behalf of the committee addressed the missionaries and teachers and some other addresses were delivered. The ceremonies were repeated on tuesday evening at the methodist Church for coloured people in Church Street. At this meeting the following correspondence was read 7b the honorable John Quincy Adams most respected sir the Mendi people give you thanks for All your kindness to them. They will never forget your defense of their rights before the great in tit at Washington. They feel that they owe to you in a Large measure their deliverance from the spaniards and from slavery or death. They will Pray for you As Long As they liver. Adams. May god bless and Reward you. Rev. Or. Parker a lecture. The substance and to a considerable extent the very words of it May be found in the dial for july 1840, in an article signed 44 and entitled 44 the divine presence in nature and in the the article is unquestionably or. Parker a. It bears internal Marks of being so and moreover it is Well known that 44 is Lis usual signature in that work. We think an extract or two from the Aitrele will form a snit Ible accompaniment to the report of the lecture and help to set die infidelity of the author in a still clearer Light. In the lecture he scouts the idea of an inter lessor or mediator Between god and Man declares that All men Are More or less inspired that the inspiration of Pindar and David of Minos and Moses of Socrates and Ghrist of 4 the lowest sinner and the highest Saint a is the same in kind Only varying in degree that the Bible is but 44 the Rush Light of tradition a and that44 for a knowledge of truth and duty Man is not to he sent to any outside code As an infallible Rule or indeed As any Rule at All hut to the inward intuitions of in the article in the dial we find the follow ing 44 the presence of god in the soul is what we Call inspiration it is a breathing m of his action on the outer world is an influence on self conscious souls it is an inspiration. There was always some seer or Man of god in every primitive nation some orpheus or Moses some Minos or Samuel some Amos or Tiresias to offer advice and reveal the will of god made known to him. The Christian Church believes the inspiration of certain men that have appeared a As a a Moses the hebrew psalmist and prophets Paul and his fellow apostles and Jesus of Nazareth. But were these few the Only recipients of gods spirit a has the soul of All souls seen fit to shed Bis Light Only on some score of Inen ? this is consistent neither with logic nor history. The bards and sages of ouf own fathers in centuries Long since forgot men of other lands the Socrates confucius Zoroaster whose influence is writ All the world Over the Saint and the sages of every clime the poor peasant needy and ignorant who with faithful breast put up a holy prayer to god whatever name invoked every True and lonely heart has Felt the same inspiration not similar inspiration alone but the same inspiration As All bodies fall the same Gravity and All violets Blossom in the same 44 he Christ will continue to hold his present place in the scale of the human race until god shall create a soul yet larger and nobler than Jesus which shall observe the a Law of the spirit of life a with the same faithfulness. Then but not till then can a More perfect religion be proclaimed to men. Whether this will Ever be done whether there Are future christs in the infinite distance but nobler than he now on their Way to the Earth is known Only to him who permitted to examine since the meeting we learn the following facts in reference to the operations of the society. During the year just closed it has circulated in this county 683 bibles and 2,090 testaments in All 2,773 which makes a total of 13,458 bibles and testaments distributed it since its organization six years ago. The receipts into the Treasury during the year just closed amounted to $801, All of which has been expended in the operations of the society. No systematic Effort Haa been made this year to collect funds and in consequence the society is now without the Means of paying for books on hand which were ordered to Supply the demand of the coming Winter. During the present month it is intended to Appeal to the various churches in the City for their usual yearly contributions and the society indulges a Hope that Quot it will find no diminution of the interest which they have heretofore manifested in the Bible Enterprise. The society has the past summer commenced operations in the City where its services appear to he much needed. In the sixth and seventh wards 994 families have been visited. Among these 65 were found destitute of the Bible and All supplied but 9, who refused to receive the it ook on any terms among Boatmen and emigrants 257 bibles and testaments have been distributed during the year. The report states that no other class of a it or population so readily and gratefully receive the Bible As the Boatmen and River men. In the jail of this county 31 bibles have been supplied to As Many prisoners. The other distributions of the society during the year have been As follows to sunday schools 123 bibles and testaments to the Hospital 72 44 44 and to steamboats 2 bibles at an expense of $7.00. Other societies on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers Are aiding this in the Supply to Steamboat but notwithstanding this fact the Hamilton county society has with i a period of five years furnished the word of god to 292 boats no expended in this Good work the aggregate sum of $1,118. Who will not acknowledge the High importance of operations such As these ? and who will withhold his Aid from a work of this kind none we Trust and believe who see the truth As it is in Jesus and have even the widows mite to give. It was a matter of regret that the attendance Quot i our citizens at the late meeting was so Small. In a cause like that which the members of this society have espoused the Christian Public should make it a Point to show at least their sympathy. Men who undertake to do All the work in this Enterprise should have something besides empty seats to work among speakers something More than Bare Walls to address. Yve Are about to go Home to Africa. We go j possesses the Riddle of destiny and Humble dist Sierra Leone first and then we reach Mendi a Cipres of the truth can answer neither Aye nor very Quick. When we get to Mendi we will Tell no. Yet May this be said his revelation is per die people of your great kindness. Good mis elect so far As it goes and this can be said of no sinary will go with us. We shall take the other Sage or Hie with us. It Lias been a precious Book in prison and we love to read it now we Are free or. Adams we want to make you a present of a Beautiful Bible will you please to accept it and when you look at it or read it remember your poor and grateful clients ? we read in this holy Hook 44 if it had not been the lord who was on our Side when men Rose up against us then they had swallowed us up Quick when their Wrath was kindled against us. Blessed be the lord who hath not Given us a prey to their Teeth. Our soul is escaped As a Bird out of the snare of the Fowler the snare is broken and we Are escaped. Our help is in the name of the lord who made heaven and for the Mendi people Cinque Kinna kale. Boston nov. 16, 1841. Boston 19.i nov., 1841. Lewis Tappan esq., Neil York. Dear sired received and accept with thanks the elegant Bible presented to me Cinque Kinna kale and the thirty two other Mendi ans who Are indebted to you and your benevolent associates probably for their lives certainly for their deliverance from an unjust prosecution and Long protracted imprisonment and finally for the Means of returning to their own country. I enclose herewith answer to the address of Cinque Kinna and kale in behalf of the whole number inserted before the title Page to the volume. 1 ask of your kindness to communicate the answer with Best wishes for their Safe return Home to them. I have been unwilling to meet them in any Public exhibition which the article abounds with such stuff. The above extracts however we think will he sufficient. And in View of them and of the report of the second lecture we ask is such a Many can he be a Christian minister ? Yve say no. The unitarian ministers of this City and Vicinity in the language of action which Speaks louder than that of words say res. A they to this Day recognize and Fellowship him As such. More than this when the South Boston Sermon was preached the unitarian ministers there present professed to be taken Surprise and this has been offered As one reason vhf in they did not protest against its sentiments on the but the article from which we have now quoted was published nearly a year before that ordination. It appeared in the first number of the dial. That work created no Small sensation among unitarians on its first appearance. It cannot be that its first number was not read every unitarian minister in Boston Long before that ordination. The article As we have said was signed 44 that is or Parker a Well known signature. It was moreover a startling article and it cannot he that having read it they would not inquire out its author. Yve believe they did so. Yve believe they knew or. Parker a sentiments perfectly before they sat in Council with him or listened to his speech at South Boston and knowing them the Sermon was just what they might have expected. Yet they did not protest against its sentiments then nor have they As a body done so any where since nor have they in any form or was As we Are aware ceased to recognize and Fellowship him Asa Good minister of Jesus Christ. The reasons we think Are two fold and obvious. Might have the appearance on part of an of a a. A a.

The silent grat lations of own conscience for the part i have taken in these concerns Are Loo precious to seek Lor the Praise or to Hazard the censure of Public assemblies. But i could not cease to take an interest in their welfare and to Hope for the consummation of your kindness to them in the accomplishment of their restoration in Freedom and safety to their native land i am with great respect dear sir faithfully yours John Quincy Adams.

Bible find the following interesting notice of the Young mensa Bible society of Hamilton county,.ohio, in the Cincinnati message we have till now been prevented other duties from making and reference to the late anniversary meeting of the Young mensa Bibl. Society of Hamilton county. It was held at the second presbyterian Church in this City., on Friday evening the 5th instant and interested deeply the feelings of a Small but intelligent audience. The chair was occupied Salmon p. Chase president of the society and the annual report read Flamen Ball Secretary. Addresses were made messes. Fells Brooke Sehon and Allen which were listened to with marked attention and pleasure. We were not so fortunate As to be present during the remarks of the gentlemen first named which we greatly regret As we hear them spoken of numbers As unusually eloquent persuasive and convincing. From the interesting report of the Secretary Winch we have Bee Bishop the very Small number of votes cast for the Bishops ticket we stated last week that we supposed that Many of the Catholic freemen in new York refused to be dictated to the Bishop. Such we now learn was the fact. At a Large meeting the Bishops Friend passed the following vindictive resolutions against such catholics a resolved that those Mogu Tdel men who basely deserted the sacred cause of humanity of education of religion who were blindly led to barter their conscience for party or for place a to sacrifice the Dearest interests of their ill fated offspring at the dictation of wily Anil worthless demagogues who proved so utterly Recreant in a matter partly spiritual to those solemn obligations Ever subsisting Between a pastor and his flock Are deserving of our utmost contempt. Resound that viewing with inexpressible disgust the outrageous Demeanour the insolent vituperation the coarse and vulgar tone of familiarity regarding persons and things sacred adopted those unworthy individuals who have so far degraded themselves As irishmen disgraced themselves As catholics and dishonoured themselves As freemen participating in or otherwise sanctioning the infamous meet a ing convened at tammany Hall 44to rebuke censure and denounce the conduct a of out revered Bishops we hereby solemnly pronounce them deserving of being stigmatized with our sternest reprobation. A resolved that the officers of said meeting whether presidents vice presidents secretaries or otherwise have for Ever forfeited All claim on the Confidence or support of the Natur r Ali Zed citizens of new York. Resolved that the aforesaid Offish is who so presumptuously dared to thrust their selves Forward and act As the leaders and organs of Irish. Sentiment or Catholic feeling in this City never did possess nor As their late scandalous procedure conclusively proves Ever deserved to possess the Confidence or support of naturalized citizens and we thus consign them to the deepest commiseration of an indignant but too indulgent Community a James t.

We afe so engaged so absorbed in preparing for an Uncertain life that we omit to prepare for a certain death. A heaven sees no spectacle on Earth so melancholy As the sportivenes9 of souls on the Brink of an Unble St eternity. If men make so much and so rapid Progress in evil Here where there exists so Many restraints and hindrances to evil and so Many Means of Good what must be the Progress of the impenitent hereafter How Swift How awful in hell there will be no restraint from evil and no Means of Good no Sabbath no Bible no Good spirit no Savior. He will be in the midst of such company and surrounded such examples and uninvited to any Effort at restraint much less reformation any Ray of Hope that would in the least Avail.
