low that scarce a murmur oi their turiuoil reaches the elevated summit; look upward to that Heaven which grows deeper and darker the higher you ascend into its untrodden altitudes ; look f<r into the verdant rale as the sun sinks in the West, and a dusky repose res's brooding in pesire satisfaction orer the fleecy herds that await the night upon the green couches ? listen to the dying echoes of day like distant music, far off; but oh, how sweet breathe the aroina of the flowers?listen to the perpetual cry of the waterfall, or the atornsy roiee of the ocean, and gaze upon its breast, Deep hearing, boundless, endless, and sublime?_ The image of eternity?the throne Of the invisible? and any if in all thou dost hear, and and feel, there is not n p-rp-tual reference to nature's God. But what a liod l?? li ' ailU now ll? wurm? uis wri.uder* ! and by what inimitable wlcill he ban wrought and sustains the play of hi* handy work. Nature ha* no tongue to tell! Aid they who ?tudy the volume or nature to learn the moral attribute! aud character ef the creator, ahall roll over her splen did leaves in rain. The work* of God in the dispeuiation* of Hia Providence, are equally obscure to the eye of tnau. Many circumatance* would lead us to the conclusion that a Being of infinite mercy is at the helm ; but again thi* aent'inent darken* when the sever *t inflictions ' fall upon those who have made the everlasting arm their streng'h Hi* sun rises and shines?His tains condense and fall alike upon the evil and the good The sparrow may, ns well as man, claim the notice and proteetion of the same Heavenly Father. The lights and shadows in the Providence of God are mingled, and we see only their effects upon aaen at individuals or communities. The broad outlines of Hie Providential interference are barely defined; the filling ap is unintelligible to us. From the obscure individual whose spau of time is fretted to an inch, and whose existence is scarcely distinguishable in the scale of being, to that of a mighty empire pressing the aarth with its bulk, the Providence of God isalike pervading in its influences; yet eo complicated and unseen are the hidings of bis power and the achievements of his own right arm, that we know nothing surely till the fate of either is decided. Gloom and glory, joy and sorrow, death, disease, and misery, or health, happiness and peace, alternately pate over the face of the earth, leaving their bright lines, or dark shadows I'ishiud to indicate that God has been there. His works of Mercy and Love are yet more extraoadinary, exciting our wonder and commanding our admiration. Rut they are equally inexplicable, as all His other works. We see before us a religion contrary to the very nature of man, opposed to his prejudice, and guarded by the most sacred sanctions that thunder condemnation and woe, temporal and eterual against the sinner ; bearing deeply impriuted upon all its features, a purity at war with the baser passions of the soul I ?inflexible, unbending, uncompromising?just such a religion as would be deemed the last to please the lust or flatter the pride of roan, yet making itself felt in tke world by ihe shear energy and power of its truthfulness and simplicity; a religion that triumphs over every obstacle, and that changes its bitterest foes into its warmest friends?selecting th basest materials for its brightest pillars and most illustrious champions. We see this religion calling auxiliaries from all quarters of the earth and from every point of the Heavens, elothing the weakest instruments with omnipotence, and by the spirituality of its doctrines subduing the nations to its mild sceptre, and erecting its broad standard upon the outer wall of the citadel of the world's glory. Iu a woid, we see the goings forth of the Eternal Majeaty in the moral grandeur with which he invests his purposes and his w_y* ob t' e thea're of time, aud there wonder tni etl -ets upon tne destinies 01 men ana nations? but the hand that holds the helm, and direct* their complicated movements is invisible. How should all this lead us to humility, and a child-like trust in God, who exalts his mercy above all his works?who pives wisdom to the simple and open his secre.ts to those that fear Him 1 III.?His Word. In the pages of inspiration we have higher manifestations of the most excellent f l*ry. A* a transcript of the mind and will of God, it transcends every other medium through which he has condescended t? reveal himself to man. Here we sea, in broad and beautiful outline, the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person : Here the whole Deity is known, Nor dares a cieatu; e guess. Which of the glows brightest shone, The justice or the g race. His attributes and perfections are wonderfully displayed in His word. They come down to us illu* minuted by the rays of benignity and leve, and we bow down before them overwhelmed with their amazing grandenr and severe beauty. The likeness to the great original is striking, but still itonly -dimly reveals the Godhead. We hearuot the voice which spokv a world from nought. We see but the shadowings forth of that inyaterioug nature that dwells between Jib a cherubim; a fuller aud clearer manifestation could not have been ma le consistently with the designs of heaven and the plaee man occupies in the scale of being A brighter and broader revelation wc could not bear; our finite nature would sink nndcr it and die with excess of light. But His word is brought down to our naked conception, and softened into the clcraeutary principles that are to forn and guide us up to a life more suited to our intelligent nature and noble origin Even thus lovcred down, how wondrous fair are its mighty creations?its vast purposes? its godlike qualities?its surpassing beauty!? How deep' llow fathomless! tlow high! beyond ail human thought. It is Aig/t an H <i ven?what can we know? It in deeper than Hell? what can joe do? How difficult to comprehend! Jesus tells us God no loved the worlil He docs not tell us the nature and extern of that Love! The attributes of fl sh cou.d not comprehend the height and depth, th - leng h and breadth of that Love which Him inclined To bl ed and die fur us. All Holy Scripture w*-. w ritten for our learning and instruction m righteousness, yet how often do the inspired writers setui to labor iu communicating thoughts, wuich angels cannot comprehend! For they (iesirc to look into th se things, and are not able. And are there not many parts of Ibe revealed world, even the mmt simple and mat nr.11 which are only seen through glass durkiy'1 Human learning fails when applied t > the investigalion of subjects which the unlettered peasant by faith apprehends and appreciates. bvea tne day-spring from . on high shines in daikncss that comprehend?th it not. The Gospel is but as darkness to the mere rational believer. Its quaint phrases, cornf plicated prophecies, and many mysteries present Inseparable difficulties to ihe enquiring taiiud unhumbled by repentance and prayer. Trinity in unity! Two natures in one person?a child who existed before all worlds, and (hat person sulTcriug death who only bath immortality and life ! All these are to reason inere riddles?they are the perplexed oracles of this world, and though uttered by truth itself, yet sincerely believed by none hut the regenerate soul. The question of the Jewish ruler, Ho\r cm Ihiigthtf remains unanswered to this day.

How fearlul ! How unsearchable ! The earth kai sinned The voice of blood is in the ears of Heaven? it* pleadings are before the throne ? The time has arrived when the patience of Jehovah is worn out, and In ! the bosom ofdestiuction sweeps over the abodes ef men. The ruin enters the lairs of the beas's of the forest, and invades tbe eyries of the winded inhabitants of thnair. Once has the deep sea been the instrument of Almighty anger. Its surges trod upon the Alpine rocks ami rose higher still uutil the refluent waves rolled over the earth's convexity without a ripple and the orb swung on its pendulum through Heaven for many a day and night, startling the inhabitants rf other worlds with the strange and fearful reflection from its rounded glassy surface^ Since that fearful era the five cities of the plain were consumed by the avenging element of nre, and the waves of the dead sea bubbled up amid the buzzing cabers of ruined wealth and pompt, to hide for ever from mertal eye the remains of idolatrous splendor beneath its bitter waters. And vet again, as city after city rose upon the map of earths doings, and ruled through its day of glory, until wealth snd pride had increased to such an enormous bulk that the pure heavens could no longer tolerate the moral nuisance. See the clouds suddenly gather a frown, as if the hear: of benevolence was curdling with horror-Sec the course of things tunning to riot?haiuan wisdom failing?human power becoming impotent. See the adjacent hills gleaming with foreign standards?and hear the agonized cry of millions within the walls,nn whom hunger,thirst,discord and fearlul pestilence, were fastening their deadly terrors.? The force of man when arrayed on the side of judg meat becom-s almost omnipotent. Those Heaven defying walls are razed, and the slimy, sluggish waters of the bitumnus plain creep oyer the site of buried grandeur? -until the grave antiquarian wastes a life in research for the spot where the millions, and the kings, and the warriors of elden time thundered in their greatness and power.? Such were Babylon and Ninevah; such were Tyre and S don Such were hundred gated Shebes, and the wild Perset.olis of the desert. Mederu Rome staads upoa the temb of Rome that was. And Athens, the severe Grecian copy by which ancient letters and art moulded their forms of undying symmetry, is but a mountain precipice of rocks straagly mingled with the chiselled fragments of domes that ^live forever in history.? Wherever we look?if to the lovely, queenly Jerusalem, or to the nameless ruins ol cities in South Am*rim * if to the ruins in Central Africa, or the rubbish that disclosed where Carthage was; if to the ruined Egrpt, or the relics of Asia, as she once was the mistress of the world, and spread her magnificent cities on a thousand plains?we shall see that a heavy curse mitoses upon all the graves of Empires. The world we tread upon is a wide grave. Every rod of its earth hath entombed a human skeleton, aad the deep sea is building coral monumeuts to the dead, which sleep so soundly beneath the dim of her ever dashing waters. Has there been no cursed No judgment! Speak the graves of millions! Rattle ye bones of mighty armies, over whose dust the chariot of a thousand years hath rolled. Testify ye moss grown relies of other ages, that now gradually mix with the soil of Europe. Ye will all point to the terrible hand of judgment, which has again, again, and still again, spoken awfully destruction to the sons of pride?whose eyes glazed, limb-stiffened, and breath departed, under its sepulchral warnings. Shall we enquire into the manner in which these multiplied and horrible judgments have been brought upon mankind in every age of the world 1 We can give no answer. God will not be accountable to men, but workcth all things according to tee council of his own will. If we ask for the time when the bolt of the judgment shall fall?the times and the seasons belong to him The Holy One of Israel may not be limittcd. His work goes on even when we think it stands still, and advances when to our senses it seems to retrogade. Though it tarry, it will surely come. God will sustain his government, and though, for purposes unknown to ns, he may se-m to stay his hand, and he regardless of the doings ol earth for a season, he will most assuredly assert his rights, when, how, and where scemeth unto him best. His judgments are ever abroad on the earth, working the will of heaven upon man and doing the Almighty's bidding in ways as countless as the motes that swim in the golden sunbeams. The adaptation of the judgment# of God are to every son and daughter of our race upon whom rests the pressure of accountability. If upon ose man the .-in les af worldly prosperity descend, and his treasure houses overflow with golden abundance, it is not certain that every wind of heaven which wafta hiin wealth from the| different climesjof earth, may not be a blast of winged judgment. The richas in which he glories are ruining his sou!, and after a lew fleeting days the beggar of eternity will look back.upon the moments of hit earthly prosperity, as the most dreadful era of his judgment blighted life. Riches and honors, no doubt come oftener as the retributive awards of long-slighted means and days of grace^thunas the seals of heavenly approbation. Oh! shocking fate. To have death end the fortune of this world, and that which is t-> come! One blow wrecks the panip -red mariner, whose shin well stored with earthly good, carries 110 gospel ballast to steady the frail bark over flit- seas, which heave and rear between thi* ntirl thr> hrtfpr lutiH God will use what instruments he pleases to effect the purposes of judgment- The death of a friend is tne judgment which wrecks one forever for t?o worlds; the birth of an infant seals another sinner over to the world of woe. Love takes possession of one, and drives him into the idolatry and cries* of passion?hatred fills another mind with deadly poison, that, like inottcn lead, gnaws its way into the quiek of the soul; terror, and fear, and doubt, drive another to desperation, and he leaps, a startled, frighted maniac, into the realms where hope never comes; pleasure and noisy mirth are the tremendons judgments that roll in crackling emptiness over others ?tbey laugh and laugh?but oh! there is an awful sound that mingles with the shout, more sorrowful than the groan of him who mourns the loss of a bosom companion. The laughter of fools is bn' the crackling of the thorns in tne firep of judgment. Hut oh! what strange being is that 1 see staggering uuder a tenfold weight ot judgment! What has he done that he rolls under such an agonizing load, that the very beasts groan out as lie passes?and the good angels who patrol the earth, hide their faces from him under their wings! What has lie done, that every silver star, looking sweetly and kindly from the blue depths of ether, reproach him!?that the beauteous flowers ef spring contradict him!?and the voice of every bird of spring ti lls a di fferent story from this 1 Is he aot one whom the gre t and wild sea wars against as the madman of the universe 1 What has he done! What is his name! He has long resisted every gracious motion of the blessed spirit within him, which gently whispered him to come to Jesus ; he has added insult t? insult to the Divinity above, and given the reins to the appetites of his nature, until the heaviest judgments are ready to break upon his soul thev follow him like a shadow. His name is Infidel. 1 sec him the astonishment and wonder of every intelligence that has power to loak upon the heart of man. He is so infatuated, that while his poor soul staggers under the fierce and withering sirrocco of that spirit which riots in his bosom, he fondly dreams that he is free?that he lias broken away from the slavish fetters of education, and dashed from him the bigotry of olden times.

Jr. (du.?uK said that suggestions were the best of arnit nte tome tinu i. rhe Cmik Considered the point of order involeeil, iciii ly similar 10 that rainud on the amendment ol the itlemun from Virginia (Mr. Wise). While he had no lbt of the power of the house to set tot apart a fuad the redemption of these treasury notes, when they 'amis due; yet to take the loud contemplated ia this endment, it would he necessary to repeal an existing i', and the amendment wns therefore out of order, dr. Clikkobd said he thought the decision of the air wua i> accordance with the wishes of the rnsjo11, and would therefore besualained by the committee, he desired lo say a word in defence of the vote he uld give against that decision. What was the object the bill? It was to provide money for the exigencies the government. What was the object of the amendit? Itwas to provide means to discharge the liabilii incurred w hen these notes fell due. He referred to act af 17M, making provision for the public debts ol Union, the30th section of which provided that the ceeds of the sales of the public land* should be appriated for that purpose. This was precisely the ect of the present amendment, the only difference ng that it was necessary to rrpeal an existing law. lr. Tii.LinnHssT said the act of 1790 was te make a leral prevision for the debt of the Union, and to point iue various source* irom wnencn means migni oe wii, In thin case it was contended that it was a mere lication of means in the Treasury, but be could not uiesce in the assertion that the proceeds of the public da was a fund of the United States, but only aa a tee fund. lr. Maxwell Rave notice that if the decision of the iir waa overruled,he should otter a further amendat, to suspend 10 much of the compromise act aa re' to a reduction of duties If the amendment of the itleman from Ohio (Vir. Weller) was in order, that tainly would be. Ir. Win said if the Chair had decided against hia ?ndm?'Mt, he would have acquiesced, and he thought t of the g? ntlemun from Ohio, (Mr. Weller,) precise limilar in etfect. Ir. Holmes said if the decision of the Chair was overrd, he should vote against the amendment. For, ugh he considered it strictly in order, yet he deemed ntcrssities ol the country so pressing?the disgraceposition in which she had been placed by the extraiion-as to demand of them immediate action. Ir. Gordon cOuteudi d there could be no incongruity, the bill| was.- for the purpose of contracting a debt, the amendment to provide means for its payment, ir. Charles Brown enquired if it was not in order en a bill for the issue of treasury notes was under sideration, to offer an amendment which would lessen ir amount. lie trusted that the gentleman from New ley would also bring in his amendment to stop the gressive reduction of duties under the compromise That, and the repeal of the Sub-Treasury, with t economy which was so loudly promised, would do ly with the necessity of treasury notes. Ir. W. C. Johnson said he would sustain the decision he Chair. As to the reference of the gentleman from ine, (Mr. Clifford) to the act ot 1790, the proceeds of public lands were a! that time brought into the sinkfund. because ths Gen- ral Government had assumed debts of the States. If the committee decided against Chair, he should feel it his duty to move an amendit enjoining it n[>o 11 this government to assume the ts of the States, at least to the amount of revenue desi from the sales of the public lands. [r. Williams, of North Carolina, said if the amendit was in order, nearly every law on the statute book ht be repealed iu thu same way. The army might ishatided, and the navy dismantled, on the plea of ap priating the money required for their support to the smption of treasury notes. [r. Wise said, that w hile he concurred with his friend n Maryland, (Mr. Johnson,) as to thu irrelevancy of amendment, lie could not acquiesce in that portion : relative to the assumption of State debts. If he Id show him that the State debts of the present day? t of Pennsylvania for instance, of thirty millions, for ling a canal within her own borders?were similar to se assumed in 1790, which were contracted in a war national purposes, he would go for assumption. Ir Smith,of Virginia, held the amendment to be per;ly in order. The bill proposed to raise means (or the port of the government, and the amendment contamtcd the appropriation of the proceeds of the lands to t purpose. This money was now in the Treasury, under a former law could not he touched; yet were t law repealed, it could he used more promptly than n Treasury notes Ir.

CoerrR then obtained the floor, and said he merely ended briefly to state the reasons which should govern vote in opposition to a bill to authorise the issue of -asury notes. lie had heretofore op|>osed bills lor a iilar pur|<ose, because he considered it an insidious ans of .supply, and calculated to encourage extravaice in the public expenditures If the issuance of ?asury notes would not relieve 'he couatry as genely as a loan.then the passage of the bill was not adable, and he held that Treasury notes could effect no ief but u relief to the oitice holders. If a loan was au>ri/.cd, and paiticularly if it was taken up in a foreign mtry, the proceeds would go into the circulation of country, and produce genei al relief. The distresses he country go beyond th? oflice holders, and the peoat largo nr.:, n:i;i o to relit.,.

There wai no sneaking out el hack windows, [laughterj or letting the ten days pass ovur, but a plain, open and manly meeting ol every responsibility. He thought the proper coui ku of debating this question, would lie to ascertain whether ihe means were wanted for the treasury, and then whether they could conscientiously vote them in the farm presented; and not to beintertwicing great national questions with the party politic! of the day. Mr. T. K. Marshall said he had it great aversion to be dragged into tliie treasury note policy, and he had risen to ask the Chairman ol the ( omm'ittee of Waji and Meana, whether he had any knowledge ef his own, independent of the letter of the Secretary of the Tieasui y, which iudueed him to believe that the loan authorized t the last session was not negotiable in the domestic market. He had not risen to provoke the wrath of the Executive, or any of his organs on thnt lloor, or to provoke the President to pop against that House, but if he wished to make a pop, he had a pop-gun ready. [Hoars of laughter.] He did not recognize, ner did he think the President was willing to recognize, a cabal on tkat floor, who were the keepers of hn conscience, and ex offitio his Cabinet councillors. This had been repudiated at the extra session in tones of thunder, which bad scarcely yet ceased their reverberations. He had risen to ask the Chairman of the Ways and Means, to state if he had any information of his own, independent of the letter of the Secretary, which led him to believe that there was no practicability of negotiating the remainder of the loan in the domestic market, ir-r - Mr.FiLLMoac said that, in addition to the letter of the ' Secretary of the Treasury, he had been permitted to examine the original correspondence on which it was ' based, and he was convinced that there was no reasona- I ble probability, if even there was a possibility of obtaining money on that lean, even if it were extended for twelve years, short ef an application to a foreign market. In addition to this, one of his colleagues on the committee, who was more skeptical than he was on this point, J had addressed a letter to one of the principal houses in ' New York, and he would send the answer to that letter I to the Chair to be read for the information of the com- I m'ree. A letter from Messrs. Prime, Ward and King was read, stating that a government loan could not be negotiated at less than 7 per cent interest, and that $10,000 of the t ' per cent loan had been sold on the date of the letler at 93 cents an the dollar. ?ir. * illmork aaiu tne representative irom mc city or < Boston liad received a letter from the Hon. Abbott Law- , rencc, with a substuntially similar statement. Mr. Maraali. said, then they were informed by Prime, l Ward and King that a loan could Hot be negotiated at less than 7 per cunt, and it can be hud for that, and on this state of facts they were asked to issue Treasury notes, and did any one suppose that they would circulate at a less interest. No onu supposed that Treasury notes < could be circulated by a forcible process, and shave the public creditors of one per cent. This might be a very neat financial operation, but it involved more than a question of policy?it involved the national honor. For one he would sooner resnit to direct taxation than to a system so detestable. Nothing would inflict so deadly a blow at the credit of the nation, and he thought there < might as well be a clause introduced Into the bankrupt law, to include the general government within its pro- ' visions. It resulted, then, that nothing could besavod ' by issuing treasury notes, except we intended to shave < the public creditor out of the difference, and (or himself he preferred that the government should raise the means 1 it wanted on a loan, oven though it should cost seven percent. Mr. UsntswooD obtained the floor, upon whose motion the Committee rose,' and the House adjourned. Baltimore. (Correspondence of the Herald.1 Baltimore, Jaw. 11, 1812, 0 A. M.

These officers, by means of a " stool-pigeon," in their keeping lor the detection of rogues, received information that a suspicious trunk had been plared on beard the schooner Mary Bright, commanded by Qeptain Bright, nop ly ing at the bead of Smith's dock,.bound Tor Swlmoad, Va. A state'* warrant was immediately issued by Ju-tice Snyder, who with the above named officers, repaired to the ve* eel and found the articles, neatly (lone up in straw matting and placed in leather trunk. Thitrunk, it seems, had been, early in the morning, put* on the schooner, during the captain's teinporary absence, by a young man who care it in charge of a colored seaman. The individual who p'aeed the trunk on board is described by the colored man as tall, spare-faced,slender-built, with black whiskers in' about twenty years of age. The trunk was labelled and directed to the care of Tallica Anson, I! iebmond, Vs. The rogue, who ever he may be, is yet at liberty, though the officers are of opinion that they wdl be able to effect his arrest. The reward at first offered for the recovery of the jewels and detection of the thief, was $1,000, though by subsequent private arrangement I learn.#1 5o<l has been offered for the goods alone, and .#T,tHi() for the thief.
