Dear Sir! 'In mvlastlctter.it was shown ihnt the universality of the sentiment, thnt the muidcrcr cugiitto ue put to acalh. Iins been such, mall time nnd among nil nations, that it must be regarded as n law of God, graven upon tho human conscience. Hnving disposed of this part of the subject j I propose in this numbei, to examine the law or God ts ins word, and the circumstances attending its promulgation. , In the commencement of the human race, the expe riment was made of suppressing murder by moral considerations, and (as is commonly supposed) with out resorting lo capital punishment. The insuffici ency of this plan was goon evinced to the nee. Vc have nn account of at least, two murders: that of Abel by Cain, and that of n young man bv Limccli. It is a fair inference from tho sacred record that mur der was a common event in the antediluvian world, for we read that tlte carthvas filled with violence, lan guage clearly intimating that men were constantly engaged in broils with cacli other. In the hrevit. of the record, other murders nre not distinctly mention ed. But from the known principle, tint the wicked wax worse mid worse, the longer they live in wicked ness, it is easy to see that the spirit of Cnin, i.e. hu man depravity, must hnve acquired n terrific power in the course'ofa long lift of 600 or SCO years, and that frequent murder must have been I In: result. The milder course, had been taken in vnin ; nt least, it served onlv .this important purpose, ol demonstra ting to mankind their exceeding sinfulness, and the necessity of higher sanction-. Under the milder course, violence filled the earth nnd men became so wicked, that he who made them could not have mer y upon them. Therefore, with a flood he swept to -MituLimii me cmuv nut, ?aiiiis uiu single lainuy vf Noah. Alter the Hood, the earth came forth afresh, cleans ed from the I lood of frequent murders. With Noah, as the head and progenitor of a new race, God enter ed into a covenant, as he did with A'nm, nnd cave nun a new charter for the world, IIecominands him to increase nnd mullinlv nnd replenish ihu e-irih ns. eures him that the ground shall no more be curse I for mans sake; that while the enrlh continue", seed time and halve!, summer nnd winter, cold and bent, and day nnd night rhnll nut cense, nnd, lest cverv gathering slorm swe.nini nero llio horizon, should awaken in him, the fear of another deluge, he nssures nun mat tno cann snail no more he drowned with n noo i : as a perpetual memorial nncl pledge of t ns pro. misc, he mint the rainbow unon the clouds will, n divine penci'.

On I declares Ins own estimate of me, nnu has asserted Ins supremo authority mcr it, foihtddiug man to (ouch it except by n warrant from Him. Thus the circumstances conncc'cd with the giving of this law, invest it wiili great importance, nnd aid us in Ha rtgh( interpretation. The remembrance of former violencc'nnd of ihe wrnili of God upon it, wns fresh in the minds of the progenitors of the new race and would give meaning nnd sanction to the law. I. The mcanint! of this hie, is that which sug go Is itself nt once to every mind. Whether wo weigh the words of the statute, or esnmino the scope and hearing of the context, no ingenuity of criticism ran invest the passage with any other meaning than the first and obviousone. The English version, ns it etnnds in ourhibles, is n close nnd faithful iranst-iiion of the Hebrewin Gen. 0 1 6. We can not find mentatnr who has attempted nn interpretation of the passage, going to destroy its received nnd established sense. It is .ns if the Lord had said, " Alihotigh I have enlarged your means of subsistence, by tin grant of animal food, think not that I set n diminished value upon life. , In order to evince Ibis, I now forbid your enting the blood, which is ihe life of the nnimal, and strictly forbid vol to touch the life of man, w Inch is of vastly greater importance, because I have made him in my own imagc- lf n brute beast shall in the exercise of vicious pro pensities destroy the life of a man, his life shall beta ken, because, it would not be safe that he should live. Gen. 9 : 5' ,So if one man shall wilfully take the life of another his own life shall be theforfeit. His fellow men shall take his life. He is a dangerous member of community. He is not fit to live. It is not proper that any man, should heexposed to iheinfl -oner of his evil passion". Make him an example lo de er nil oili- trs from -'(lending in the same wnv. Moreover, shall takn no' satisfaction (no substitution of other punishment) Car the life or n murderer ; He thall sure-, ly be put to deaih." Such, nml no other, to every mind, is the plain meaning ut tins law. INoiice 2. 'I'he extent of it.

All the reasons for its existence, at all, are equally reasons for its per petual obligation. But, Sir.'the labored and plausible nrgument against the divine law of capital punishment is this, viz: " TnarlAe't'omfntf if Christ and the introduction of Ihs Christisndispcnsalion nas abrogated u, to that it s no longer ty citioin,' ,ircc. n w nnoiu iiunni. what is by no means the fact, that Ihe Law in Gen. 0: 6. was in anv sense, niven peculiarly to Ihe Jews. it would bv no means follow that the introduction of the christian dispensation had tepcaledll. It is nd milted that Christ vacated what was merely typical ana ceremonial m uini nispensaiion, inn u rouin ensi ly be shown, Ihat he did not touch n single moral pre cept. Ho says himself that he canio not to destroy the Law but to fulfil. But wo havn already shown that this liw is in no sensen Jew'fh insiimiion; dial it wn given to Noah and hissqnsns ilie progenitors or n new race, more than a thousand years bcfoio the Jews had existence as a nation, When tho Jews were embodied ns n people, the ex istence nnd obligation of ihis law was uken for granted, as nv'ch ns the continued permission to cat Mnintnl fond.

If we proceed to the christian dispensation and ex. amine its spirit and precepts, we find n sirnng con. fitmntion pf the doctrine taughr.nn this subject, in the Oil Tstnmcnt Tlie gospel gives ns no warrant f.ir fiiitlering nwav t'm penalty of Ihe crime, fhrntgli simpalby for llio criminal. It represents God nsvls. iling transgression with uncompromising retribution. At the same lime, it reveals him as the most merciful of beings, and tenches that this, his unyielding course with rerpeet to crime, is in mercy's cause, nnd for nrfl.V S asset that mortsls msvknow the character sl-Xl dsr i er'fn nd b frtif.rd t" withstml t" allurements and guard against its temptation!", " thctj may hear and fear and commit no more that any such crime." It is truo that Christ repudiated Ihe falso glosses and the perversions which Jewish rabbies had put up on mornl law, ns m .unit. 5 1 ii, when Christ says, Ye have hem a Hint tt hath been said, an cye.oran eye, iyc. Whoever will read nttculivelv llio 0th or Malt, will he satisfied. I think, that our Loid intended only lo forbid priva'o retaliation and rcenge. So far irom repealing nny moral law, in inc uccatoguc, no even extends the duly of obedience to these laws, to the very thoughts oi tno neart i he letter ut tho law condemned the overt net of murder, but Ho says. Whosoever isnngry wiili his brother, without n cause, shall be in dancer of the judgment I nnd whosoever shall say lo bis brother, ftaca, shall be in danger of the, Council ; but whosoever shall say, Ihourool, shall be in danger of hell fire. The conduct of Ihe Saviour in respect to ihendul- terons woman, John 8 : II, when ho said "Neither do I condemn thee," if-c. lias been appealed to. IJut this was on I v intended lo ndmini-tcrn merited rebuke to the hvnocrincnl scribes nnd Iihansees nnd to dis claim nil interference ill the ndininistrnlion of the civil laws, as he had done on other occasions, Lnku 12: 13 -n. Our Lord plainly acknowledges both the existence nnd justice of the law of capital punishment, when he sajs to Peter, "All thev that tako the sword shall lierish bv Ihe sword. Mntt. 2n" i n. Attain In Rnv. 13 : 10, Ho thnt killeth with the sword must bo killed with Ihe sword. If we nasi now to the Epistles wn find them inter spersed, with acknowledgements of the necessity nnd righteousness of capital punishment. Of this charac ter) is the a passage in Rom. 13: 14, when Paul speaks of civil government, ns " tbcordinanee of God and the magistrate nathe minister of uou, bear ing not the sw-ohd in rain, but as an accuser toex- ecute Krath til on htm that doeth evil." The sword of the magistrate i nn instrument ofdenlh, and llio mode of execution in that nge was, beheading nsin the case oi .lonn, l lie iinpnsi. Again, when Paul was on his trial before Feslus. He says, 11 If 7 be an offender, or have commiltedanv unng icoriny n; aeaii, I rrjusc not lo uie, rtcls.'j: II. There were crime-, then, in Paul's view worlbv of death, ile hercfullv acknowledges the righteous ness of death, ns llio penalty for certain crimes, or nl least for one crime, nnd he ncknou Indues that n hu man government may rightfully indict that penalty. All agree that if nny crime deserves this penally, it is mcrder. This is decisive of the question. The con clusion is unavoidable, that thcinmr of thcNcwTcs lament, and the teachings of Christ and of inspired apostles, fully snnction'nnd uphold the law. Wuoso SIIEDDETII MAN S BLOOD, BV MAN SHALL Ills BLOOD BE SIIEP. Such, DcarSir, is nn outline of what I humbly con eeivc to be the true ihcoloi'ical argument m this t on trnveriel subject. There are oilier nnd tleeper views which I intended to linns forward ill this connexion. hut thcpresiireof indispensable duties nnd llio fenrof iieing tediously lengthy prevent my giung to ihonr gmnent the fullness I designed. The firm conclusion of my own mind from these premises, is, that the Law requiring Ihe murderer to be put to death, is of God. It is graven upon the hu man conscience and recorded in the written word. It was reissued from Ml. Sinai, amidst the niignsl In l ens of Jehovah's presence. It stands enshrined among the immutabilities of God s truth, in the verv soul and centre ot the Decalogue, ns if God intended that man should never remit or hv his hand upon Ibis, until ho had broken down nil other barriers. It is of nniteisnl extern nnd of perpetual obligation. Regarding it, icligiously, as a Law of God, invested wuh these attributes, 1'nni deeply persuaded that no HUMAN LrciSLATCr.r. HAS ANY CONTTOL OVEn IT, SO i irns mo crime ni murder is concerned ; lint the re peal of it would bo ofl'ensiva to God and unsafe ti eommilllllv : thnt it must stand nml nneern llm enn duct of mankind, until Ood himself shall see fit to middy or repeal it.
