Hero innocence, in the person of Christ, was made tha victim of malice, aided by cowardice. The tonilency of the whole transaction was greatly to injure the cause of which ho was the advocate. And the guilt of his enemies was reone the less, bocauso the overruling power of Hum who can cause the wrath of man to praise Him, subverted their designs. The Jews wore taken at their word, and for eighteen ccnturius have been the victims of Jehovah's curse. Nor was Pjlatc innocent in surrendering his respon eibiliUcs to others willing to assume them. Ho was bound to prolect an injured mm, whatever tnWht hair, boon the consequences to himself. Many, in the present dav, read with horror thls'bold assumption of guilt by the Jewish nil crs. and little think how nearly their oivti con duct repcmblcs it. In the person uf Christ's ministers, innocence is often oppressed by the rulers of the sand uarv, and of the people, and those whoso duty it is to be judges in such mit teri, after having prnnouncpd them undeserving of rejection, not unfrequently deliver them into the hands of their persecutors, to be dealt with according to the dictates of their malignity. It is the prerogative of every church, in their col lective capacity, to choose their spiritual tcar.li cr, and also to decide when the interests of re lirrion call fur Jiia removal. Each member lias in these matters equal rights with all others, anil sustains enual rcsnonsibilities. A few, there fore, whatever may bo their talent and their Handing in the church, cannot, without guilt usurp the pcrogative or tlio many, and thus ex. crcise a forced lordshin over their brethren. Whenever an atlempl of this kind is made, for the purpose of unsettling a minister, the body of the church are bound, by a solemn compact in to which they entered when thoy called h m to the pastoral charce. to resist it. Anu n mo lew will not acquiesce in tho decision of the many they should bo dealt with as vi latnrs of cove nant vows, and troublcrs of Zion. Formerly this was tho case, hut for years it lias been other wise, to the creat detriment of churches, and the injury ol ministerial character and useful ness. J he troubles which now ea olten sever pastors from their flocks, and rend congregations asunder, are frequently t.ie result 01 uisalislac. tion on the part of one, or at most of a few indi viuuals, arising in a majority ol instances, .feelings as unhallowed as tlioso which caused the Jews to reject Christ. Envy will sometimes prompt an ofiicer or prominent member of church to oppose his minuter. He becomes of fended, when he thinks his pastor lias more con .fidonce in the judgment of some other member "than of himself, and lie resolves upon his re moval, in the hope of securing the labors of another who will give the preference to his -counsels. Pride is a busy sin in such matters, Some one thinks a man of more popular talent inan ins minister, would give respectability lo "the church by drawing literary men into the congregation, and from no bolter motive tceks a change. Other are actuated by pecuniary con Biucrauons. i ncy mini; mat a diliorent man would enlarge the society, and diminish the burden of supporting the inisistratinns of the gospel. But perhaps hatred of tho truth, more than anything ulse, leads to the rejection of ministers. All arc not Israel that are uf Israel, :and ungodly men in the church hate tho lash of truth no less than those without its pale. There arc usually, also, men of influence in the con gregation, who take ofTenso when touched with the keen edge of the naked sword of tlio Spirit. In such cases, members of the dhurch will es pouse l heir quarrel charge the minister with imprudence, and urge a change with a view to conciliating such ungodly men, and retaining for the society the aid of their influence and proper ty. Whatever may be the reason of an individ ual's desire for the removal of his minister, he sets about the object in full expectation of suc cess. In most churches there are some small minds, that can bo duped by any designing man. Tlio influence is courted at t.uch a time, and pleased with beinj noticed, they lend their scr- vice to the troubles of Zyon. False reports are put in circulation, and dark insinuations made .respecting the minister. His words, and all his .actions, are watched in hope of iiis saying or doing something, which by torture, may be mado to operate against him. Tlio assistance of ungodly men, known to bo his enemies, is sought after. 1 1 is confidence is violated to his detriment, and no efforts are left untried to des troy his influence. Ho hears of the intrigues that are being secretly practised againt him, and demands an investigation. Nothing is proved to his disadvantage, and the body of the church feel unwilling to cast him ofl". IIowcv er, in the hope of conciliating his enemies, thoy admit tlint he is not perfect, that lie has at times poken unadvisedly, or acted imprudently, and promise that ho shall do better in tune to come. But knowing that he is acquainted with their baseness, and never again respect them until he hall see evidence of penitence, Ina oppressors demand mora loudly his dismission. All the while, too, their cry is, The temple nf the Lord ! The temple of tho Lord ! They disavow all personal fceiing in tlio case, and aver lnt they are actuated solely by a desire fur the prosperity of Zion, and the "lory of (1ml. Those who do. fend I j i in are charged with not being friends to the cause of CliriM, and solemnly admonished to beware hmv they malte division in his lamilv ! The case is said to be a plain one the pastor must leave, or the lloclc will uc tlentrovcu Apprehensive that they shall incur injury in their reputation or business by adhering to their minister in this time of trial, a fearful people ad vise him to ask a dismission, and thus virtually condemn hirn though conscious of his innocence, and deliver him up to tlio will of his persecutors. They disclaim any participation in the injury done to his feelings, reputation, and future use .fulness, and tell his opposers that they must take tho responsibility. This they are very willing to do, and thus in effect invoke upon .themselves and their children the consequences. Now, those who through cowardice abuse a godly minister in such circumstances, know not .what they da They are bound lo sustain in noennce at all times, but especially when perse cuted and to havo no fellowship with the un fruitful works uf darkness, but rather to reprove them. When, therefore, the mijority of a church deliver up a minister of fair reputation, and generally acceptable, into the hands of a faction resolved at all hazards to reject him, the v place themselves in the attitude ol I'ilate when lie condemned Jesus. They proclaim his in pocence wash tlicir nanus and ray, Wo are free from the injury done to this just man see ye to it And though his persecutors willingly taKe tho responsibility, are ms menus thus an solved in the Mght of Cod ! Tlio bojy of the church are the proper arbiters in the case, and if they surrender their authority into the hands of unreasonable men, clamorous for his rejection, they do then in effect seal his righteous doom. and become partakers of the sin. That sin too i of a caimson dye. God requires that his ciiurcncs esteem very liu'lily in lovo for their work a sake, those whom ,e has constituted their spiritual rulers.

And if a heavy woo bo tho portion ho adjudges to those who offend tlio littleones that believe in him, what must bo tho doom of thoso who thus trifle with the feelings, the temporal comfort, the reputation, and especially tho usefulness of that order of his disciples to whom he has committed in a special sense the caro of souls, and the or dinances of I Ilia house But not only aro min. jstsrs turned suddenly out of employment with darkened prr-pects both of support and useful ness, to gratify tho unhallowed caprices of a fac tion ; they aro in most Instances cast off ponni. less, with dependant families to bo provided for. I l-.i. nitinnrns nromiscd as a remuneration for ministerial labor aro ordinarily so small that the most rigid economy is requisite to iinkn them sullico for the current expanses of a family. If then tho salary lias uoeu promptly p.uu, u uru is usually nothing on hand. Hut a people who are prepared to act unjustly towards a minister in tho greater, aro not apt to bo very scrupulous in regard to the less. Honco tho instances are raro in which tho pittance promised is fully paid. Is it to bo expected that a God to whom justice and judgment aro more acceptablo than sacrifices will let such iniquity go uupunisneu i uui mis in not all. Another nastor must bo procured, and in order to this tlio church must justify her self in tlio rejection of the one lately dismissed. Honco statements in solf-justification, and con domnatory of the injured one, aro often made without a Uuo regard to the goiuen ruic. i ins is tho unkindest cut of all. It is adding defa. imtion to imustico n tho absence of tho sul. i. rcr, for the purpose of deceiving another who with a full knowledge of tho state of affairs would not adventuro himself in such hands.

Hut in nine cases out of ten it is not denied them, while secret defamation is re sorted to for the purpose of rendering them un popular, and afiecting their removal ! Tho law of Christ forbids that an accuasion be received against an elder, (minister) but boforo two or three witnesses. Is this injunction respected in the present day 1 Formerly, ministerial char- acter was esteemed a sacred thing, which might not bo polluted witli impunity by slanderous lips. Is it so now !

Tho New York papers of last Saturday morning came to us filled with accounts of a moM daring mutiny on board tho United States Brig Somcrs, Lieut. Commander Ai.i:x.M)i:i: Smijei.i. Mackenzie, and the execution of the leading mutineers. A more nefarious plot can scarcely bo found in the annals of history, and if it had not been promptly suppressed, by the energetic con duct of tho commander, no ono can tell what deeds of horror might have been perpetrated. Tlio Somcrs is represented as one of tlio ve ry best sailing vessels in our Navy. And as a pirate, under a skillful commander, tlio imagination can hardly depict the scenes of bloodshed which might havo marked her course. Most sincerely do wo grieve fur tho unhappy father of the wretched young man who is represented as the master spirit among the mutineers, and who has met with so inglo rious, but so well merited a fate. Lieuten ant Mackenzio is well known ns a very in telligent, accomplished, and humano officer, and his character and reputation arc such as to justify tho belief that ho would not havo proceeded to such extremities, had not tho circumstances of tho case imperiously de manded it of him. Tho following aro the details of tho dark transaction: A MOST IlOItltllir.t: AFt'AIIt. It turns out (hut events of a most appaling character occunod on board tho U.

Such things cannot, however, bo kept secret. Tho' Somcrs is a fino sailor, lus ton guns, and a crow of about twenty ablo men, and forty upprcntico boys, making with tho officers, some seventy-fivo poisons on board. Shortly before tho brig arrived at St. Thomas, whero sho put in to water, it ramo to tho knowledge of Lt. Commandant Mackenzie, that a mutiny was in preparation on board headed by Midshipman Philip Sponcor, n son of the Hon. Secretary of War. Spencer was thereupon arrested, aud papors wcro found upon him, signed by such a number of tho crow as would havo been ablo to carry out their plan by a surprise.

Witli ait tioori,.g pAnlP cirninilnr, important document was first referred to select committee, with instructions to report what was to bo done under the awful dis ponsation. The committee entered upon the solemn duty with all becoming gravity, and while the whole solar system was held painful suspense about the result of their de liberations, the most portentous intimations were thrown out from lime to lime to aggrc vate tlio universal anxiety. At last, and when tho solicitude of tho whole human fam ily had reached such a pitch of intensity that longer delay must have caused a gener al explosion, (he Committee were graciously pleased to make a report.

Yours respeclfullv. THOMAS II. UENTON, Ba o (31, In this village, on Monday morning the Otb inst., at the residence of U. G. Cole Esqr. Mr. Samukl CcTl.tn, in the 77th year of his ace. In this death God has removed another of our aged mid venerable Fathers. Mr. Cutler had re sided among us but a few years, yet such" was the simplicity and excellence of his character, that these few .years were sufficient to win for him the love of all who knew him, A beautiful humility rested on him like n garment, and he never put it off. The gentleness of his spirit, and the suavity of his manners, interwoven ns they were, with a warmth of feeling, and illus tralcd by kind words and acts, always and in all places secured for him the most fervid feelings of attachment. The disease which terminated his life, was Erysipelas. Only eight days before his death, we saw him in the sanctuary, nn interested hearer " worshipping God leaning on the top of his staff." Ileb. 11 : SI. Mis illness was short, and tho Lord dealt gently with him, nnd spared him from severe and long continued suffering. He was aide to converse but little, on account of itiflnmation in the throat ; but he appeared to have a distinct view of bis approaching dissolu tion from the first, and with cheerful and unfal tering trust in his Saviour, he waited his change, sustained by that holy religion which he had so long professed. In sickness, as in health, lie uniformly appeared in a state of mind peculiar)' sercno and heavenly. lie falked of death with composure ; of what was beyond death, with a placid smile. His whole hope was in Christ's atoning blood. His reason was spared to him, apparently until the last, nnd when his hour had come, he 'fell asleep' in Jesus, and 'was gather, rd to his fathers' in so gentle a manner that the family and friends attending upon him scarcely knew the moment of his transition. It was a peaceful end of a peaceful, happy life. A careful delineation of tho character of a good man, whose example deserves and invites imitation, is a public benefit ; for the actions and feelings of such a man are a source of instruc tion to the world and a living commentary on the excellence of .that religion from which he drew his principles of action.
