The witchcraft delusion and atrocities,
of which Salem, Mass., was the scene iu
1697 is too horrible to narrate. Suffice;
it to say, that during the ' prevalence of
Lthis fanaticism aud reign, of wickedness
twenty persons lost their lives by the
hand of the executioner, fifty-live escaped
death by confessing themselves guilty,
one hundred and fifty were put in prison,
and more than two hundred others
accused. The Hev. Charles W. Upham,
pastor of the First Congregational
Church, in Salem, Mass., in a volume of
"Lectures on Witchcraft," delivered in
1831, says that "Dr. (Cottony Mather,"
who is still regarded as ouc of the early
Puritan' ornaments, aud who urged on
the prosecutors," contemplated the witch
craft delusion as the instrument in pro
moting a revival of religion, and boasted
of the success with which it was atteiided
as such." Wayleii's Ec. Kern. 67.
The Plymouth colonists, very soon af
ter their arrival in the country, enacted
a code of raws, which is undoubtedly
genuine, and it is a very remarkable fact,
that they did not adopt the laws of Eng
land as the foundation of their code.
They professed, that their leading ob
ject in migrating to America was to enjoy
liberty of conscience, and to support and
transmit pure to posterity the religion of
the Bible ; and finding in this book the
leading principles of good government,
and asy stent "Of laws for tho general reg
ulation of human conduct, they adopted
it as "their principal code of law, and de
clined, as an article in their bill of rights,
that no man should suffer but by an ex
press law, sufficiently published ; yet in
case of a defect of law, in any particular
instance, by the word of God? Art. New
Eug. Eiicy. Britt. Sup. Ed. 1803.. The
magistrates, however, had it in their
power to decide what was meant by the
expression,, xord of God f which very of
ten signified in their mouths all the er
rors which they absely .took to be the
word of God.
A historian, evidently quite frieudly to
them, says that "this code of laws became
marked tcillimany additional capital crimes,
unknown as such to those, of England
and smaller offences icerc multiplied with
rimrous exactness. As this severity had
for its Object ' an exemplary purity of
morals aud religion, tchich should extend
to ererii personam society, it of course
reached the more private actions of its
members, and included all the relationship
snbsistinq between them. Their capital
offences; were idolatry,, witchcraft, bias
phemy, murder, bestiality, sodomy, adul
tery, mau-stcaling, bearing false witness,
conspiracy, and rebellion, cursing or snn
ting a parent, unless when neglected in

cruel correction, relnjllions and stubborn
conduct in a son disobeying the voice
and chastisement of his parents, aud lit-

Other offences were also! made capital,

the degree of tho offence was in some in

prevailed of showing respect to particu

New York Letter, April 25.
Friday night the great hall of the
Cooper Union was the scene of anoth

emigrants, but the Rev, II. H. Gar
nett, Thurlow Weed and the ; rest
could not get up much excitement or
collection, though they drew "blood
curdling pictures of "colored murders"
in Mississippi. Fred Douglas was
declared to be cold aud Hays evasive,
which sounds very truewith regard
to the cold water man in the White
House,' if not in Fred's case.
There were letters from Wendell
Phillips, Lloyd Garrison and Mayor
Cooper's private secretary read, but
still the svmnathv and the tales of

Then a colored brother rose in the
midst of the akemby and proposed to
sing in grand Jchorus the grand hymn
of liberty, "John Brown lies mould

mer of enthusiasm. But the brother
when he started the hymn, got it just
one octave up too high, and squealed
in a falsetto. The rest tried in vain
to ret out some music on the higher
register, but the thing was so comical
that the whole assembly got to laugh
