Gilman, of Portland, Preeldait; Hon. N. G. Hitchborn, of Stockton, Vice 1‘reti dent; Rev. Mr. Hayward, of Kendall's Mills, Secretary; and other standing officer*. An able report was made in the Church In the evening by Rev. U. VV. Rugg, of Hath, on the condition of the denomination In the State, which wo* followed by uumerou* ad dresses from gentlemen from various parts ol the State. A very Interesting report had been made in the afternoon by Rev. A. Battles, of Bangor, on the Sabbath School enterprise, followed by addresses; the singing ou the occasion being done, and tee// done, by the children of the Orono Sabbath School. This morniug a sermon was delivered by Bev. Mr. Tweiss. of Lowell, Mass., and this afternoon a report on the cause of education will bo made by Rev. W. R. French, of Tur ner, to be followed by addresses from Rev Messrs. Dillingham, ol Waterville, McColUs ter, of Westbrook Seminary, aul other*. This evening the following resolutions, reported this morning to the Convention by Kz-Gov. MWUUUIU, II U1U IUV ill i lICC UU IUC Oiaie «f the Country, are assigned Tor consideration. An animated discussion aud their unanimous adoption will probably be the result: dissolved. 1. Tiiat in the struggle now go ing on for tin- maintenance of the Constitu tion and the Union, in whose preservation we believe the highest hopes oi humanity are concerned, every true aud loyal citizen, waiv ing immaterial, subordinate and unnecessary Issues, will look steadily to the main and im minent question; aud will uphold, strength en aud encourage the lawful authorities of the Government in the performance of the re sponsible trusts which the peqgle, under the Constitution, have eommitted to their charge, and will criticise their acta, not captiously nor complainingly, but for the true purpose of ef fecting a correction of such as may be unwise, amd only that, the common good may be pro moted. 2. That slavery, having been at once the oc- i cation and the cause of this most flagitious rebellion, aud its perpetuity and iucreaso be ing still the objects for which the rebellion is continued, the question of what shall be done with it becomes vital and inevitable; that I having by force of arms tendered to the loyal country the issue,—which is greater, the p„t rrnnent or llxelf, or which or the two shaii liv# ?—it has forfeited all claim upon that Gov ernment to recognition or protection; and being in Itself a politics', social and morsl evil, its existence should be tolerated no longer. 3. That it has become the high and com- j manding duty of (he Government and people of the United States to provide that slavery, the cause ol' so many evils and woes in the pa.st and in the present, and whose continu ance would Ire a standing menace to the peace, ! happiness and prosperity of the country, and to the right* of human nature, Khali exist no longer in the Jlepublle; that believing in the wisdom, justice and clear constitutional justi fication of that ever memorable act ol the President, the Proclamation of Emancipa tion, we ask that ai! lawful measures be adopt ad necessary for its execution and to the end that ita perfect work may l<o Accomplished; aud wl* a*k of Congress a repeal of all laws regaining or protecting the execrable com merce ip slaves upon our coast, and hotwevn the diri'.*«ml Stales; and*in order that ail doubts an the subject may be removed aud ) cavils ponced, wc held It to be Its duty lo take needful steps to enable the people of the Slates to so amend the Federal Constitu tion as to affect a complete and undeniable extinction of this deplorable system in all the States and territories of the Union. 4. When we consider how much the brave meu w ho, from the impulses of a noble and generous patriotism, have voluntarily gone to the camp and the battle-field, subordinating their material interests and the comforts and delights of home ami neighborhood to the de mands of duty, and imperilling health and life itself lu its service, have done and suffered for j their country and those who shall inherit it, | we feel how inadequate are words lo express our sense of the debt ot honor and admira- j lion, and of stteetionale and uudylng gratitude that we owe them for their spieudid services, , their glorious courage, their marvellous pa tience, and their self-sacrificing devotion. Capital Punishment. B., Wednesday's Courier, iu a brief paper ! upon capitr.l punishment, alluding to the approaching execution of Spencer, thus que ries: "But after all we wonder if the worthy Chief Magistrate of the State, by whose order tlie unfortunate man is to he launched iuto Eternity, will have no little unseen twinges of ! conscience between the hours of twelve and ( one o'clock next Friday, when he thinks that a human being is deprived of life by bis in strumentality.'* Why should he have twinges of conscience, seen or unseen, for indicating, as his official duty required, the day when the sentence of the law should be performed, any more than the officer who executed the sentence, the judge who pronounced it, the jury who touud the verdict, or he ami I and every citizen who constituted the magistrate, the judge and the jury, and imposed upon them by solemn law the functions, which for us they proceed to perform precisely as they have sworn to do? The man uow ordered to his death has been guilty of the unprovoked murder of the offi cer appointed to take care of him in the prison, to wbicli he was consigned for a pre vious crime. He has made a place designed to effect his reformation the theatre of a new offence of such a grade that it excites the ap prehensions of society and distuibs the twig going theories of philanthropy. When Spen cer struck at the throat of the late prison warden, he struck at the tenure by which a dozen murderers hold their lorfeited lives; he scuttled their ark of safety—perpetual im nfiu.minnnt flio midor-i liln i-uaniil'i'o • nnw. ardly instinct accepts instead of a decent i death. Still seekiug to dud a weak spot in the | heart of the Governor, B. proceeds: “ But will no unbidden thought intrude it self upon his inner self that alter all it may ; be that the human law conflicts with the di vine, and the command eugraved upon the tablet of stone ages since, ' Thou shalt net kill,’ applies with as much force to States and communities as to individuals?" This quotation from the Hebrew law light ly understood, is a vindication aud uot a con demnation ol the procedure. The progress of 3000 years has not made maukind more inhu man. Our sternest modern codes are vastly milder than this ancient one. Whether the command, “Thau shall not kill,” applies with as much force to .States and communities as to individuals, is to be determined by exatniu iug in detail the system of laws from which it is takeu. From such examination it becomes obvious that the judicial killing ol men was not intended to be prohibited by Moses, but was especially enjoined. “ The murderer shall surely be put to death.” More than this, private, as well as judicial vengeance, even to the taking of life, was especially sanctioued. The murderer was to tie slain, not by the officers of the law, but by the “ avnijer of blood," and even the man who had accidentally slain his neighbor might be killed by bis friend anywhere outside of six established cities of refuge. B. is probably right in saying that the pub lic will pay but little attention to this execu tion. When thousands of lives, made noble by intelligence, probity aud ailection, and crowned now with the glory of a soil'-sacrific ing patriotism, that belittles in the compaii son our common styles of virtue, are almost daily whiffed away before batteries belching sheets of mingled llarne and iron, will Uie ag onised people stop to weigh the uuappreciable loss of a single wretch whose traits belied hu man nature, and only known for every right minded man to regret that be bad ever exist ed. Surely Nature, teeming with a fecundity giu.t defies the wi-!e of war and disease, has not so sparingly created the molds of human souls, as to compel us to cherish like divini ties the broken aDd abnormal types of hu manity, whose natural instincts develop in the direction of homicide and murder. Let Carlyle, in his rough and savage rhetor ic, albeit no lieformer, nor even the meekest kind of a Christian, utter a few words of stubbed tense: "If I bad a commonwealth to reform or to govern, certainly it should not be the Devil's regiments of the line that 1 would lirst of all concentrate my ntlenliou on. With them I should biyipt to make rattier brief work; to them one would apply the besom, try to sweep them with some rapidity into the dusl-bio,auu well out of one's road, 1 should rather say.— Fill your threshing-floor with dorks, rag weeds, may-north*, and ply your flail upon them.—that is not the method to obtain sacks of wheat. Away, you! begone swiftly j/» regiments of the line, in the name of God, and of His poor struggling servants, sore pul to it to live in these hud days, 1 un-art to rid myself of you *ilh some iiegre.e of brevity, l'o feed you in palaces, to hire captains and schoolmasters, aud the choicest spiritual and material artitlcers to expend their industries on you,—no, by the Eternai! I have quite | other work for that class of artists; seveu aud twenty millions, w ho have uot yet de clared for tile Devil. Mark it. inv diabolic friends, 1 mean to lay leather on the backs o' you, collars round the necks ol you; and will teach you after the example of the gods, that this world is not your inheritance or giad to see you In It. You, ye diabolic canaille, what has a Governor much to do with you ? ; You, 1 think, he will rather swiftly dismiss j from his thoughts—which have the whole ce- I ieslial and terrestrial fi r their scope and not the subterranean of scouudreldom alone." | If our mild Chief Magistrate is not kept in , countenance by such counsels, let the grim philosopher accost the caitiff we expect him j to rid us of futther, as follows: “We, not to he partakers in thy destructive adventuie of defying God and all the Uui verse, dare not allow thee to coutinue longer among ns. As a palpable deserter from the ranks where all men at their eternal peril are bound to he; palpable deserter taken with the red band flghtiug thus against the whole j Universe and its Laws, we—send thee hark into the whole Universe, solemuly expel thee from our community; and will, iu the name of God, not with joy and exultation, hut with sorrow stern as thy own, hang thee on Friday next, and so end." Another Opposition Blunder. We did suppose the democratic members of Congress would exhibit more | olicy. if not more principle, than they did iu their recent vote on the resolution for the amendment of i tlie Constitution to prohibit slaveiy in the j Unit 'd States, but we were mistaken. The democratic representatives arrayed themselves against it in almost a solid phalanx. This movement on their part may well astonish the country, and must necessarily drive thousands from this old, and once n spcctable organiza tion. This vote furnishea full evidence that . they Intend to stand by, defend, protect andT perpetuate the “peculiar Institution,” if that : were possible. It is a naked resolution to buckle upon their own backs this heavy bur den and attempt to carry it along without flinching, and In the lace of the whole civiliz ed world. It cannot be fald that this vote was given In obedience to the convictions o constitutional duty and obligation. It has not- j even the semblance of that excute, but it 1 seems the demonstration was made out of pur e love for human bondage, and that too in this latter half of the nineteenth century ! It was a vote against submitting tho question of amendment of the Constitution to the people from whom nil political power U deilvcd. It does seem as if the gods had indeed made them mad, as a preliminary to their final de (traction. It Is Id fact signing their own death warrant. Afraid to give the people an opportunity to say whether negro slavery shall ioDger curse this fair land or not! Wliaf a democracy such a vot« shadows forth! Even the Autocrat of all the Russia* will be astonished at such self immolation upon the altar of human bondage, and all the governments of Europe will be thunderstruck at such a demonstration oil the part of American Democracy. We venture the opinion that no true democrat, whether residing in the old or the now world, can ap prove of human slavery per sc. ft is as far re moved from true democratic principles as Heaven is from that other unmentionable place. American Democracy will yet ask the 1 question, what good can grow out of the “sum | of alt villianies ?" And can the leaders give a satisfactory, or even tt] rational answer?— How often have we been told that the democ racy of the country is not in favor or, hut op posed to, slavery in Itself, hut in the same breath the declaration is made tiiat the Con stitution justiilcs it, and therefore do consti tutional light exists to meddle with it. In that view of the subject there was a plausible excuse for sajing “hands off,” but now no such excuse can reasonably be made. The democratic representatives in Congress have assumed the responsibility of voting against any amendment of tbe constitution which may prohibit slavery, therefore the inference is fain legitimate and irresistable that they love and advocate it as a good institution of our coun try. Does the representative from this emigres* slonal district for one moment suppose that the democracy here can carry such a load os this vote ou the ameudmenl has fastened on its hack ? If he does he will find himself most wofully mistaken next autumn. The true democrats of Maine are opposed to slavery in ail iu forms. None hut those of the copjier he&d stripe favor it and they almost blush when advocating it, at least, there is a little stammering even in them, when their tongues arc emplo>ed in lhe>dvocacy of such a prin ciple. We believe the democrats of this Stale would vote light on this question, If it could lie presented to them naked and dissociated from party prejudice or party Influence. And, j id muuui tan iu lUUIk at this vote in the House iu its true light, and govern themselves accordingly. It is not for us to dictate the policy which the opposition ought to pursu% but we ven ture the prophecy that if they take such a load on their baeks aud attempt to carry It through the next campaign, their steps will be feeble aud tottering and they will fall under it never to rise again. It is too late in the day for any political par ty to shoulder slavery and attempt to carry it along with any hope of success. And if the democracy ol the country follow the lead of those democrats in Congress whose vote was virtually iu the interest of this accursed insti tution, it will die out aud he buried 10 deep that the souud ol no trumpet can ever awak en it agaiu. We place this prophecy on rec ord to-day, and ere much tune has elapstd it will become a matter of history, and the world will laugh at such suicidal policy. Aud yet the copperheads of the country may succeed iu binding this heavy, crushing burden upon the backs of the democrats. They may not come out boldly for such a measure, but may so far succeed as to iuduce the Chicago Con vention to sloblier it over and so lubiicate it that a portion of the democrats may swallow it themselves and hope the remainder will have stomach for the same process. Hut we tell them it is a dangerous experiment,one fraught with the death of the party, with Its total an nihilation. Dodge the question as you may, gentlemen, slobber it over with all the skill and cunning within your power, “paint It an inch thick,”and it* real complexion will come at last. The people's eyes arc fast opening to the tricks of demagogues, aud they cannot much longer be deceived. “Out upon this half-faced fellowship!” “He must observe their mood on whom he jests, the quality of persons and the tlmr.” Maiue Congregational Conference. SKARsroitT, June 21,1804. HJitor of Hit 1’rest: The steamer Lady Lang was crowded with paaseugers last evening, ehietiy to attend the auuual conventions on the Penobscot, of three religious bodies, namely: The UniversalUt at Orono, the Baptist at Bangor, and the Con gregational at Searsport. A large number were landed at this place: and It is due to the gentlemanly proprietory of the boat to say, that she was taken out of her regular course live or six miles, for our especial accommoda tion, although the fare was only half price! The weather is delightful, l’enobscot Bay Is In all Its glory, and the scenery Is enchauting. The general attendance Is large, and the delegation quite full from ail parts of the .State. There are also present representative* of religious bodies from Ohio, Iowa, and other States, and from Canada. Rev. Dr. Harris, professor iu Bangor Semi nary, is Moderator of Conference, and Dea. E. K. Dureo, now for the fourth term, is Sec retary. A committee ol which Rev. Wooster Park er of Biddeford, is chairman, presented reso lutions upon the state of the country, which W<*rp nnanimnnulv atliml**.! Tho (Vsll^nrlno ■re perhaps the most important:— Kesofcerf, That we r*-atfirm our general co-itUleuce in the policy of the Administra tion, and more than ever feel it our duty to give the Government a cordial and earnest -upport in thoroughly suppiessiug the rebel lion, and restoring the Union on the basis of Liberty. Heaulctil, 1 hat in conioiou with our noblest patriots and purest statesmen, we deem it a duty to exert our utmost influence to secure such an amendment of the constitution as lb ill extinguish slavery Irom the land, and prohibit it forever. A resolution was also adopted in reference to the Freedmen. Prior to the discussiou of these resolutions, an able sermon was delivered before the Con ference by Hev. Kichard U. Thurston of Wal tham, Mass., on the text, “He that would be great among you,let him be your minister,” or the ministry of Christ. A leading topic of the discourse was that the higher classes resisted his influence upon themselves snd upon the masses, aud closed their doors to the heavenly visiter, lienee he could not minister to them: for he always re spected the lawB of social propriety. Mercy attacked no man's perogative. The discussions of the resolutions in the af leruoou was to the point. The speaking was earnest and unqualified—for the day of tem porising is passed. Hev. Mr. Johnson of Ban gor, opened ifi-t discussion, and was followed by Hev. Messrs. Cutler of Belfast, Dr. dick ering of l’ortlaud, Dr. Holbrook of Iowa, Bowker of Bluehill, late Chaplain of gtilb Me., Adams of Auburn, Hanks of Mass., and Hon. 3. C. Fessenden of Bockland. Interesting remarks as to the growth of Congregationalism iu Iowa, were made by Dr. Holbrcok, who stated that Iowa had furnished •Vi,UUJ three years voluuteers, 10,000 one hun- j died days men, aud a whole regiment of men bver 45 years of age; and that they would tight on until slavery should he utterly abol ished. Arnoug the members of Conference is Hev. N. Douglass of BaDgor, who was present at | the first session in 1821—forty years ago. A discourse was delivered |a the evening before a society to aid the widows aud orphaus of ministers, by Hev. Mr. Walker of your city. Ue greatly magnified the office of the Chris tian ministry, and highly eulogised the rural paston's wife, but not excecdiug the hounds of palpable trutjj. It was a severe but just reflection upon the want of appreciation of nlnl-terlal services, and upon the stinted sup port ol the ministry, although, he said, there tvas not thu least personal reason for com plaint on his pgpt, but tbe reverse.
