Sin, Ilnd ynu been pleased, alier 'be repented expressions of disapprobation from those of your own ehureh, to hnve withholdeti your phillipie against the Temportincu (society m your second edition, I should feel less inclined to address you in litis public manner; but ns the nibjrei now Htauds, I. think il is untiling less than proving Irnilorotn to llio principle of virtue lo decline a vindication of thine sentiments of truth that you have so violently assailed. In conducting n re view of your ill-biled and ill-producing performance, F feel some embarrassment, lost in giving your arguments what 1 think they deserve, a caustic review, I should have to appear personal; but the must 1 bavo.to do t.s with what you have wiiilen. I would premise however before entering upon thu investigation, the real cause of your production. Was it h-oi nso theie was too m ticti temperance in the laud? Was it because too much of the vice beg gary, wretchedness and wo, thai nod tolled their waves of rtiin over the bind Imd sub sided, by the blessed influence of the tem perance society ? Was it because the tem perance society had produced no good in this respect? Was il because the nation was like to bu injured or the church of Cod depopulated by the efforts of the temperance reformation ? Now sir. I sup pose there is no man jf sane mind iu the face of the nation, the experience of ihuusiiuds, and the eslaolished fads iu the the case before bun, eiccpl yuuisclf, that would pretend any suet thing. What then are we to infer were tie inducements thai prompted ynu to lake the stand you have taken? We conclude it must have been individual aggrandisement or sectarian in tercel, nnd if either of these were your motives, might we not tsl,, is this worthy a man? a christian? n protectant Dtsbop? Hut from your introduction we are con firmed in this conclusion by the modest ntteuipl to reproach others with pride and vain boasting, and the full declaration that you and your church "refuse to yield lo any body of elirislains on earth" in your attachment and observance of temperance und "of every other moral virtue." If this censure and boa-t were the only contra dictious iu your performance you would gam more eiedit than you now have; but this is deserving of ntlentim as it nuist dispose any one to louk cautiously at what you might afterwards produce There is a charge of n scmus nature in your inlreduciion against many "in the ctitirch of Christ" of "hitler hostility," which had you supported by a particle of proof would have demanded ptnet alien, t ion, but as it is. we simply deny it en tirely demand proof, and until you bring forward your proof, allirni your Reverence to have manifested nil you have charged on others. Having disposed of prelimina ries, we arc prepared to advance agaiin-l your invulnerable rock of demonstration, and show that the temperance suciety is based on religious principles is not chargeable with the objections which your morbid imagination, has tenred against it that it is promotive of the best good of the species, and of the cause of Christ that if it were to become univer sal it would be one ol the nobleet triumphs of Christian virtue and therefore the Pro testant Kpiscopal Church is nut innocent iu standing aloof (rom it. In doing tin- 1 'elm II endeavor to use ma ny of tliu arguments agnnist your own po stiions that yon would bring against the temperance society, showing that your .oasoumg in many points refutes itself, and that your whole performance is wot thy of no one but yourt-nlf. n rnv n xt I thall examine your first objection and t.bow its fallacy, anil ns you judge it fundamental lo tlio whole, bhow that your superslruc'nru is founded upon nothing.

Santa Cruz had levied a contribu tion of jjhOO.OOO on the inhabi'unis of Luna and i-sued several decross against those who favored the debarkation nf the Chi) bans.

and lyceunis have recommended with entire unanimity and decided approbation, thin plan lor a universal lyccutn." The object of this organization is rather eoinpiehonsivn, il must ho a'loweil. It is to secure the nssistaiino of distinguished scientific individuals, philauthro. pitls nnd christians hi ilitl'eronl parts of the globe in aid of tbo humble efforts ,f young in quirors after knowledge and the inexperienced laborers for Iho advancement of science the elevation of morals and the redemption of llin human family."

The proposed list of officers cannot bo onuiiioralul without unreasonably encumber, ins your columns. 1 fear moreover that some might suspect some vat political scheme lo bo concealed hoiieatb such a heap of mollov materials To be sure tboro is but vnc pcrsuu named for a President, width I rather wonder at. Tins ore is I lenry Ilroujrham ofKmrland. Of vice picsuicnls there is theuiotlcrale number of fifty two. A slraugo assemblasru of names it is. moreover. I'ut Iho 1'e.tof vice presidents is a siinill nuttier to that of the corresponding secretaries. Of these Ibcro are lo he only one hundred and tliirlj.sir(n, selected from some sixiy or seventy States. Kingdoms, Empires and Islands. The harlequin appearance of these lists exceeds anything which I over saw. This mighty array of nearly '200 vice presi dents ami secretaries, of all grades, trades and professions. gathered from all parts of the hub. itnble globe, and preceded by una commander iu chief, is followed, and I suppose is in be kept moving, by one other officer denominated the actuary.

W. AFRICAN COLONISATION. We are glad to learn that the en iho of 0010111x111011 com nines to prosper, and ilia! it is growing iu favor in all soeiions of the Union. It is one of the noblest enter prises oftho ago; il is highly creditable to ibe stale of public feeling, that its elaini lo general patronage and support should have been so early recognised. We have no reference to Abolitionism when we sneak in tliec terms of commendation of this society, bu we regard it simply a one of the most plau-iblc means of bringing Africa one more into the circle of civil ized nations, and destroying the slave t rado on her coasts, by encircling ihem with a American colonies have nlrendvttntne",! to con-iderablo importance on the Alncau coast, by Iho extent of their possessions, their growing irade, and increasing popu lation. They are in possession ol the best harbors nn-l most salubrious sites on the C"al, and surrounded, as thoy are, by a fertile and expensive back country, we .-co nothing in prospect to retard their laptd advance lo power and opulence. With I he humane elements of Christi anity and knowledge, incorporated with their political constitutions, and closely in ter woven with the habits and feelings nf their people, we have every surety lha' fach step of their progress in gener al commercial and political importance will be for the good of the human race, nnd as such, wo look upon their prosperity wnh feelings of i b; biib'-st gratification.'
