At th?> r.r ? ?1 J #-:~J ? ?? ? miuru menu, meoioer <>f tb? Methodist connection, wa republish the following interesting letter, first appearing in the column* of the Baltimore San: BrrrAi/i, June 2 ?As many of jour readers art- interests! in the absorbing question of slavery. which has for the last month past occupied the attention of the general conference "J Ae Methodist EpWcopal church, in *e?sion *r *his city, it mar be interesting to examine ' Tesult of the agitation which has expressed i*4elf in the report of the majority of the ommittee, and which has now superceded by it-, adoption much of the fundamental laws of Methodism upon thia absorbing question. >n~h an examination, I think, will be a v of congratulation to the friends of conservatism in the country, and show that the egitation?which at one time threatened tode?lroy the integrity of the church, and give an ?-additional uupulto U> sectional fanaticism? has culminated in a m?re mild and temperate >*pre??ion of doctrine than could have been h >r?d for by the moat sanguine friends of Motk<xU*A. The doctrines heretofore held hy the church upon the subject of slavery have been emphatically expressed in the Discipline, a;nd to a full understanding of the question as it now ? \ist?, it may be necessary to inquire what was heretofore the law of the church upon **:.at subject? On page 212 of the Discipline adopted over fifty jears ago. we find the tolI'ikidk rule as the law on tht> 4uM<u?t r,f In answer to the question. "What shall b?* Ion" for the extirpation of slavery'"' the Discipline says, "We declare we are a? much as ^cr convin<??<l of the great evil of slavery, hercfore flavtholdc c shall hr etigthle to ! 'if rrfitrtnl Xt<lltt)H tit 0?r chunk-?' ?V?" any traveling prcacher becomes the w*?er of any slave or slaves, by any means, he .-hall forfeit his ministerial character in our church. unless he execute a legal emancipation rf such slaves, conformably to the laws of *ae State in which he lives. ' Again, on the I?-ame p*ge, "All our preachers shall enforce i?n our members the necessity of teaching tHot. - ? - from the dUease. The case was not a fair sample of the di?ease, but it nevertheless demonstrated the theory of the Commissioners that cattle once sick will never fully recover. The next animal killed was r cow, whioh was brought into Mr. Chenery's herd in December last. She had never exhibited any signs of disease beyond a slight cough, and an external examination before death failed to discover any indications. As tho animal had been exposed to the infected herd, it was a matter of curiosity to ascertain whether she had taken the disease. Upon a careful disscction of the luLgs the disease was found to exist in an incipient stage. The heart was soft and flabby, as in all cases of this kind, and there were other indications of the prevailing contagion. Thi. : *1 ? *- ? ??

During the last ree months the creature has gradually repaired its appetite, and consequently its ??rength and was supposed to be recovering, ill it !*bu2hed. and uoon ? r - -'mvauiuhcu dullness <>n the right side, and strong tubular respiration. The necessary preparation* having been made. Commitsioner Lothrop introduced Dr. Martin. who stated in brief hi* diagnosis of the case, lie expected to find the most disease in the right lung, and no doubt adhesions. The calf was killed, the right shoulder and ribs removed. and the chest laid open by L)rs. badd and Theyer There was a strong adhesion of the pleura of the long to the ribs, diaphragm, and heart case. The lung indicated that it had beea compressed into a small eoutputs, by Mrum which had In (he subsequent progress of the disease been abeorbed The windpipe con tained a secretion of mucus, which probably produced the rattling heard before d<atb. ih< membrane of the lunjf waa very much thick; ened, and the lung tiMue nearly destroyed The cyst or bag of the lung waa l?>uud empty, whereas in eases of the disease in an acutt form it has been found to contain a large body of lung tiaaue. or the subetance of the lung The theory of thoee most fsmiliar with the prevailing disease is that the tissue in this <<**eb*ii been softened, and reduced to liquid rate or pu^, and then taken up by absorption.

May '12 Dear Spirit The whole thing is settled at last, so far as Sayers and me are concerned It u not exactly what I bargained for, but it will serve to prove that I have not done the place I came from any discredit, and that I have got a big crowd of people on this side of the water, who, perhaps, don't like me any too well at that, to give the lie to those at home who still try to defame me with a want of courage I hear that Morrissey is still foremost in this line business but I earnestly hope that none of my friends will interfere with him on that account. He cannot do me any harm by whatever he says, and so long as that is the case 1 want that he should bo left for me. I understand that he still publicly says he will fight me when I come home, and I mean to make him keep bis word Let hiia commence preparations as soon aa he can, and let_ him get in the best possible fix, for if anything will tempt me to leave this country speedily, and postpone auv intentions I may have about the old Celt of England, it will be for the satisfaction of meeting him in a roped ring agaiu- I bear the man no malice, but I want to punish him for the way in which his talks about me, and c >nser|uently I want him all to myself. All the satisfaction I have bad trorn him thus far is the two hundred dollars 1 won fr?..? ?>!..> on his bet that I would not come to England and fight Sayers, *nd I now want to give him another chance, or to get another chance for myself, to win or lose five or ten thousand doj- I litrs more. I shall have between five and six thousand dollars of my own money on the 1st of Juno next, which I will fight him for, and I will make it ten thousand or twenty thousand dollars a side if he likes, on any day that may be named after four months' notice. I shall expect him to close with this proposition for a meeting at once, but I will add that if the aum' I name are more than will suit his book, 1 will aooommodate him for one thousand or one buudred dollars a side?yea, for one dollar or a ten cent piece ' If be crawla out of this aftur all that he has aaid, why, I suppose, there is no further need of my following birn up or paying any farther attention to him S > no more oI ihat Jons C.
