Higher law doctrine. Tins has been re-
peatedly demonstrated in tcrnls the most
conclusive ; but perhaps nowhere has the
whole scriptural argument been morn
clearly and forcibly set forth than iii a
pamphlet entitled 'A Brief Examination
oT Scripture Testimony on the Institution
of slavery' by Thornton Sirigfellow a
Uaptist clergyman of this State.. He un-
dertakes to prove and does prove beyond
all qucstioir 1st That slavery received
the divine sanction m the patriarchal age:
J2d that it was incorporated into the di-
vinely appointed Constitution of the Jew-
ish nation ; 3d that its lawfulness is recog
uized in the New Testament and its rela
tiVe' duties are therein regulated ; and -lib
that it is full of mercv. Bach ot these
- ... - . !.; c
propositions is sustained by a chain .of a..
thont.es drawn from the Bible so clear
sodtrectlv to thenomt. and so cogent a-.
to be irresistible. His citadel is so well
fortified at every point that it will prove
impregnable to all the assaults of the Sc
wardites and their battle-axe will ring in
vain against its gates. We have not space
or time to give the long array of proof
presented by Mr. Stringfellow and must
content ourselves with drawing attention
to his pamphlet and touching upon some
of the more prominent and striking points

appears then that Abraham was with the

Ilia servants were hereditary bondsmen chat

Slavery was incorporated into the Mosaic
law and became a pari of the Jewish Thco-
onced by this
cracv. Ihe Jews were auth
divinely appointed law to pu
from the surrounding heathen nations and
make tlserrj hereditary bondsmen and the for-
eign slaveholder was guaranteed full protec-
tion while coming in and dwelling among the
Israelites and raising and selling slaves and
the Jewish slaveholder was allowed an iiulim
ited discretion in the management of slave.
So far these enactments referred to slaves
of tho surroundiug hcalhen nations. But
the Jewish bondsmen themselves at the end
of the Gth year were nllowed to extend the like Sir Thomas Browne and Addison have
period of their bondage to freedom. For the.ueen induced to suppose that the soul in this
1500 years during which these laws were in
force not one word of reproof is ever utter
ed by tne prophets against slavery on ac
count of any abuse that grew out of it. All
ibis may seem very paradoxical or very wick
ed to .Mr. Seward and his coadutors.hut there
it stands in black and white in the Bible and
let them get round it or over it or through it
ss best tbey may. Mr. Thorntorn Strigfel-
low with bis sling will give the de grace to
the greatest Gohah of them all. Here is an
extract from Leviticus: Thy bond men and
thy bond-maids which hoti shall have shall
be ofthe heathen that artf round about you
of tfienf shall yn buy bond men and bond
maids -Moreover of.lhe -children ofthe
trangofs that do oojourn among you of-them.

It appears Irom a passage in JSxodotis that was very much mortihed by imagining that
a Jewish hoilsmau marrying a bond maid givliis opponent bad the belter of him. Colur-

preference is given of God to enslaving the
father rather than freeing the mother end chil
dren.' It is necessary therefore that those
who are of opinion that slavehohhng is of it-
self a ain should reject the Old Testament for
it recognizes it as an institution divinely ap
pointed and divinely regulated. It will be
found too that the abolitionists who are of
opinion that slavcholding is in itself a sin will
be under an equal necessity if ihey carry
out their own doctrines" to reject the New
Testament too. nnd this is just what many of
these fanatic; have aroaclr done.

The chivalry of the whole South is aroused by
the avowed determination of sections of the

SINGULARITY IN DREAMING
The assistance supposed to be sometimes
furnii-hed in sleep towards the solution of pro
blems which puzzled the waking seuse.opens
up a curious subject ol investigation. Cas-!
es ofthe kind have been recorded upon uti-j
doubted authority Hence some philosophers
siuie is p.iiii.iiij uia:uii;t'u irom uie eiicuui
...: .... -.!!.. a: l r .l.
uniuuu ii oou uierutore more ittiei
l.gent which is a mere fancy -a poetical fie-
tion: Surely it is absured to sunposo that the
i r i. i 1.. i .t r - . i
soul which we invest wiih such high and per
Tact attributes should commit such frivolous '
and irrational acts as these which takes place
so constantly in our dreams. -Me'liiiiks"
observed Locke 'every drowsy nod shakes
this doctrine " All we remark is that some'
of the ordinary mental faculties act in such
cases wiih increased energy. But beyond
this we cannot go. We are informed by Ca
bains that Franklin on several occasion men
tioned to him that he had been assisted in his
dreams on the issue of manv affairs in which'
he was engaged. So also. Condillac while
writing his Cours d'Etudes.statos that ho was .
(frequently obliged to leave a chapter incom
plctc and retire fo bed; und on awaking he
after having .retired to rest often found their
results unfolded to him in his dream Vol-
tarirc assures ns that he like La Fontaine
composed verse's frequently in hi3 sleep which
he remembered on awaking. Dr. Johnson
state3 that he once in a dream. had a contest
- of wit with some oilier
person and that ho
gested to him by a. passage he was rending
in "Purchua Pilgrimage" when lie fell 11-
slenp. On waking he had a distinct rccollec
tion ol the whole and taking pon and ink
and paper instantly and eagerly wrote down
the lines which have been so much admired.
One of the most striking circumstances
connected which the human mind is the ex-
treme lightning-like rapidity of its thoughts
even in our waking hours; but the transla-
tions which npp'ear to take place in our dream
are accomplished with still more incalculable
rapidity; the relations space the duration of
time appear to be alike annihilated; we are
transported in an instant id the most distant
rcnonsofllii. H.irfh nn.l tl.n nv....ia .ln.a
are condensed into the span of a few .seconds.
The accidental jarring of a door.or any noise
will at the same moment it awakens a per-
snn suggest the incidents of an entire dream
lleucesniuc persons Lord Broticlinm in oar
ticular have supposed that all our dreams'
take place in the transition orintervul between1
sleep and waking. A genih-inan dreamed

same want of any notion of the duration of
time occurs.moro or less in all ureams;hence
our ignorance when we awake. of the length
ofthn night. A fiiend of Abercroinbje'.s

spent a fuitnight in America. In embarking

The attendance was largo on both days and the ex-

Upon this the only true test the institution of which
we are speaking has acquired a reputation at home
and abroad and to show that "it is well merited we
have only to refer to numbers of young ladies in this

cincts with minds fully ripeded by rich stores of solid
learning. As an evidence of ihe proficiency of Mrs.
Toilds scholars and her admirable system of instruc
tion; wo learn that her senior class was examined
by all the literati of the town with a view of awar-
ding a prize to the best scholar and the committee
of examination were unable to bestow the priza up
on cither declaring that all wero equally proficient
and that each one was entitle;! to the highest honor
of ihe Institution. The exhibition in the ornamen

Thfajgciitleinanivwho accompanied Presi-

labored speech nt Buffalo which
Il'l-.iLI!5Per n vor of himself and the.
atjmimstration regard as a true exposition of
his and their principles on the Sonthern r-ues-tton.
About the time last spring when the
South was rallying her forces at tlie Nashville
Convention to take counsel how she should
protect her nRbts and save the Union tho
."Rod-ilitu Daniel" made n speech in the Sen-
ate in which ho rtbuked the North Tor her
uukindnesa to the South and make a strong
professions of regard for the South for tlie
Constitution and for the constitutional ri-lus
ofthe South. The effect of thnt speech at
the South was electric. Coining from a quar-
ter from which nothing was expeeted. it in-
spired hope nmong the desponding and did
more than every thing else to create apathy
in relation to the Nashville Convention .
Whether it was designed as "a Yankee trick
to throw the S-iuth oil her guard to delude
and deceive her it is not our province to de-
termine. Yet it is nevertheless (rue hv it
she was thrown offher guard and ha's hec-j
deluded and deceived. Who would ihcn have
believed that so soon therealtcr Webster'
himself would have had the hardihood to 'do-
liver such sentiments as are found ui his Ruf-
alo speech? We have only space for the fol-
"If the South wish any concession from
mc the wont get it not a haii's bredih of
it. If they come to my house for it they will
not find it if ihcy do. I concede nothing.
But I suv that I will maintain for you to the
utmost of my power and in the face of all
danger their rights under the constitution
and your rights under the. constitution.
Cries of "oou' good!" Sic. J And God for-
sake me and my children if I ever be found
to filter in one or lhe other. Tremendous
".My opinion remains unchanged' thnt it
was no: ia the original scope or design of tho
constitution to admit newStutes nut of the for-
eign territory and thnt for one 4 never wnuhj
consent and no matter .what may be said nt
the Syracuse Convention or any other asscm-
b'npe of insane politicians I never would
con.-ent that tbeic should be one foot ofslavt
territory beyond what the old thirteen States
had ut the time ofthe formation ofthe Union.
Never never. The in in can't show hisfaco
to me and say he can prove that I ever de-
parted from thnt doctrine. He would sneak
away and slink away or hire a mercenary
Hcep that he might say what .:i mercenary-
apostate from liberty Daniel Webster has be-
come. Laughter and cheer.s. He knows
himself to be a hypocrite and falsifier.
"But when we c.nm to speak ofadmittinj
new States the subject assumes n new ami
entirely different aspect. Our rights and our"
duties are then both different. The free
States and till tha States are tljen at liberty
to accept or reject. Wh-n it i proposed in
hrtn new members into :J:i3 political partner
ship tlie old memliers nave a rigrit to .sny on
what terms such partners are to come in nud
what thev arc to bring along with them.
" ' e
"WpII all th.it I will ni.wsny is that with
the blessing of God. I will not now or here-
after before the country or the world con-
sent to be numbered among those "who intro-
duced new slave power into the Union. I did
all in my power to prevent it " Applause.
Had Mr. Webster ar.vwcd these sentiments
in hi speech in the Senate; had the great
'Constitutional expnuuder'then dclaredthat
under the Constitution no more slave States
could be admitted into the Union 'That. h5
never would consent that there should be onc
font of slavn territory beyond what the old
thirteen States had at the time ot the forma-
tion of the Union.' that speech at the South
instead of allaying the excitement would
have added fuel to the flames then enkindled.
iIr. Webster the constitutional e.xpoutider
is now a constitutional Union 'man. How will
his Constitutional Union allies in Georgia rel
ish his exposition of :In: Constitution? They
in their platform make lite rejection nfa slaVu
State a ground for dissolution of the Union.
He says 'tne old members have upright .to- .
say on what terms such paitno.-3-afo-i7r--G-iTlt5 -in'
and his whole speech shows that his;
views correspond with those of the dominant
majority of 'the old members;' and'that with
his consent.no other slave State will ever be'
added to the'Uinon.
The following sentence of the speech ir
pregnant with meaning:
'Gentlemen : 1 regret extremely that slave
ry exists in the Southern States and that Con
gress has not power lo act upon it. But it
may be lu the dispensation of Providence"
some remedy may be found for it.'
He does not designate the remedy for tho
evil the existence of which ho 'extremely re
grels.' But ho knows the remedy exists and
that it is in hnnds of the North. Ho know?
that the day is not distant when by the addi-
tion of new States from territory made Ireo
by ihe last Corrgicss the constitution can bo
changed when Congress can have the pow-
er to act upon slavery in the States.
Tlie following rich anecdote from the
Home (Ga.) Courier is said to be literally

boys visited CnrterviHc for the purpose of
taking his lirst ride o n the railroad. When
