1 ruely, he was made but a little lower than
tin: angejs. And, although he has fallen
lrom the biighl tniiueiiee of his oii 'iual pu
rity and moral grandeur. tho.iL-h tl.e glory
of hi- nature is weeked ami ruii;c(I, st.il he
exhibits much to awaken admiration, much
that U lovely, much that is interesting and
awfully important. Like some once ujble
editii'e that time and storm have laid in
ruins, still in its eiuiiil liiig and dilapidated
condition, convincing us of its former splen
dor and perfi ction. So It is with man;
great even amid his ruins. Anl how great
does he npp.-ar when we see him I'eting as
the chosen instrument of kind hi aveti to
remove, to mitigate and heal the sad eonse-
j Ht nees of that disobedience which brought
death iido ti.c woil l and all our woe '. And

perteetioii to raise some of your fcllow
meu from their degradation, from their wal
lowing in the mire of moral corruption, to
stations becoming their nature aud answer
ing the end for which they were created!
Is not the object which calls you here to
strive to remove some ol the miseiies ol the
human family; to break the spell that has
e !.,! over the inebriate, to unbind his
chains and set him free ? Yes 1 TeiiiH-r-ai.ee

its accents are the very breath of death,
the lightnings of desolations, the tread of
destruction '. Trudy, its removal from our
beloved country w.-uid be a great and glo
rious achievement. An achievement suffi
cient to call l oth a universal shout of re
joicing t,-om the minions of its inhabitants.
And if t aid in the achievement of this
great triumph be the object that brings us
here, finely it is worth our coming.
But h t u consider awhile how great the
object is, ill which we are engaged. And
we inca-urn its greatness by the magnitude
of the evil to be remedied. e .-av it is a

Ju-t so. NVe can establish such laws as will
stop the unrighteous work of the distiller,
and the unjust, destructive occupation of the
retailer. Although we cannot give to the
maniac a rational mind, yet we can take
from hi in the weapon with which he would
slay himself and others. Neither can we
give to men moral resolution enough to cn
:.b!e them to re-it the temptation to drink,
but by driving bald-!;-.i-e establishments
from the State, we can drain the toper's
decanter, and thus st--p him in his destruc
tive course. But how can we bring about
such laws as will secure these rc-ii!ts? We
must do it by enlightening and changing

accomplish any general good or remove any
general evil, in order to succeed they must
bring their efforts to hear upon the object
in a united, organized form. The united,
efforts of a thousand are more powerful than
the misdirected, discom-i. rted cfioits ot a
iniiSioti. I.e-t the object be good, h t there :

and there ill be power irre-is'.ihh-. and sue

have the charging thousands been roiled
back, a brc-V.i ii mas of ennfu-ion ; routed,
.scattered and driven like leaves before the

When the fhurcii would carry out her lu-a-

The landholders aud the laboring popula

From paper recently laid before Parlia
ment it appear- that since the emancipation
of the -lave more than six hundred estates
in the Iland have been abandoned. Thc.-o
plantation once gave occupation to up
wards of fifty thousand laborers. All tho
e.xpcrlim nts that have been employed by
the local (ioveriiincnt to arrest the ruin of
the i-lai:d have proved unavailing, and the
inhabitants tire now beset ehiug Parliament
to do something for their relief. Hut what

the sensible portion cf tin- British people
conies- that the i maneipati Ol of the West
India negroes was a mo-t thoughtless and
im-oii-iib rate act a ' tremendous mistake."
But then- are some anioiig them who refuse
to bi lieee that any evil can follow the " im

Britain for the re-cue of thi, once valuable
colony, though the subject is contemplated
with a deep and mournful interest by all
who take p.i-le in Britain's supremacy."
In addition to the general indolence and
poverty into which the blacks have sunk
,-mce their emancipation must be added the
de cline of the chri-tian religion among them.
It is stated that they are fat relapsing into
their obi superstitions of Fctichi.-iif ami
