FROM TIIE PUBLIC LEDGER.
The tiagedy al Christiana, in Lancaster Co.
of which the correct particulars are given in
this morning's Ledger, is one of the fruits of
the, " higher-law " teachings f the fanatics
who look beyond consiiiutious for their rule of
action, and take the promptings of an inflamed
eai as me evidenced ot an infallible conscience.
When the law for the recovery of fugitives from
labor was first passed by the last Congress,
these men got up indignation meetings all over
the country, counselled forcible resistance to
the laws, and advised (such was the excess of
their philanthropy) the colored population to
the commision of various high crimes, even in
eluding murder. The effects of their counsel
is lo be witnessed in the scenes at Ohrisiiana,
A citizen of Maryland nod his son, empowered
with the due. authority, and assisted by officers
of ihe law lo capture their runaway, are resist
ed by an armed body of negroes, the father
murdered, and the son mortally wounded. If
these are ihe fruits of philanthropy, the teach,
ingft of conscience, it is full lime that the au
thors and instigators of such diabolical outrages
were taught that ihe laws of the United States
are the supreme law in this country, and every
citizen must either voluntarily submit to it, or
seek some other countrv. where he can dia.
charge his duties as a citizen without putting
his conscience to so terrible a strain as is im
plied in submission to the legally. expressed
win ql tne majority.

for a few hints therein if you will spare the room,
lo farmers and other gentlemen located at in
convenient distance from all mechanical aid by
which to meet ihe ravages of time incident lo
every homestead. Unsightly dilapidations and
casual breakages are often endured by the most
exemplary proprietors solely from the difficulty
and remoteness of all present remedy. I there
lore respectfully offer the only recipe for this
complaint, and quite different, loo, from most
other prescriptions, being as pleasant in its ap.
plication as it is" grattifying in its effects. The
marvel is that it is not more general, as the
few who rejoice in it as a regimen have never
been known to abandon it. It is this : for ev
ery householder thus isolated to have a " set of
tools" and habituate himself to their use ; and
lei no man demur at this suggestion as of diffi
cull attainment ; he will not rind it so, while its
advantages (independent of pecuniary ones) are

" Time's use was doomed a pleasure ; waste, a pain ;
That man might feel his error, if unseen ;
