Portland, Aug. 13,183.4. A False Ory. “I remember,” sal J Wesley many years ago, Shearing my father say to my mother, hew could you have the patience to tell that block head the same thing twenty times over? Why said she, if I had told hiu but nineteen times, I should have lost all my labor.” Ia this re ply of the excellent mother to that boy who afterwards became one of the most celebrated preachers of the age, and whose name and fame will be revered and cherished by true Christians through all coming time, there are much good sense and practical wisdom. The close observer of men’s opinions, of tneir ac tions, of their prepossesions, of the motives that prompt them la various directions, and of the multiplied influences brought to bear upon their conduct in life, knows very well lhaistroog and important points are frequent ly ignored, or entirely forgotten, in making up their Judgements, or shaping their course of action in matters of public interest upon which they may be called to express their opinions aud seutiineuts. And this is especially true In times of great excitement when the memory is taxed to Its utmost power to keep the ruu of everyday oc currences and the mind more or less dlstryfct ed in endeavoring to comprehend clearly'the thickening crowd of events that is pressing upon it from all quarters. At such times the trading politicians who have axes to grind are ever on the alert, watching every oppor tunity to leal the people astray, and making side or false Issues in the hope of blinding their eyes to the main questions aud the most important points. Such deinag >gues, like the petrel, are most busy in storms aud take advantage of the hurry and confusion of events to pave their way to place and power. The politicians of the Copperhead stripe are not igaorant of the power there is in reitera tion. They know very well the nature of that philosophy taught in the reply of Wesley’s mother, aud hence the cry of peace is raised and repeated with an earnestness and a force which they hope will impress the public heart and convince the public mind that such a boon is to be had for the asking, and that the people will entirely ignore or forget the con ditions which the arch traitors and leaders of the rebellion demand as asinequanou. Their object is to make the people believe that if they vote the copperheads into place and pow er, peace, which every body so much desires, will at once smile upon our distracted coun try, and the rebels will roar as gently as suck ing doves. But we have the authority from the rebels themselves to say to the loyal people of the country that this cry of peace is false and fee ble as ropes of sand. And it is this authority the copperheads are so anxious to wink out of sight. They are turning every stone to bury it from the view of the people, and striving with all their might and cunning to make them believe that the rebels are ready to lay down their arms and come back into the Uuion.lf our Government will only ask them to do so. U Is shameful that men of Intelli gence should thus attempt to falsify history and impose upon the country such falsehoods, when they know the vile work they are en gaged in, if successful, would utterly destroy the Colon and break us up into petty repub lics, even less respectable in the eyes of all civilized nations than tbe Mexicans were be fore the French Emperor sent his protege over to wear a crown on an uneasy head. But we too will take a hint from that wise mother who had her own peculiar notions in impressing lessons of morality and virtue upon tbe mind of her son, and say to the people that the only conditions ol peace the arch traitors have ever offered to us were a dissol ution of the Uuion and a separate Confeder acy whose chief corner stone must be negro slavery. This is a serious and solemn fact, and one which shall not be lost sight of, if we have any power to prevent it. The Copper head journals are using all their tact aud skill to cover up this important fact, and bury it deep beneath the swiftly passing and exciting events. Their object is as plain as a turn pike, and the people, whom they hope to hoodwink, will not fail to see it and approach the ballot-boxes with their eyes open aud with loyal hearts. We tell the people once aud again that there can be no peace and tbe salvation of tbe Uuion except on two conditions—first, let the rebels lay down their arms aud cease war ling against the government ot the United States from which they have recieved nothing but good aud that continually, or second, the military power of the rebellion must be bro ken by the force of arms; let either of these conditions be complied with, aud peace will once more visit our country—then aud not till then. This great fact is as patent as the sun at noon-day, aud all the arts aud iutrigues of traitors, demagogues and trading politicians cannot conceal it from the eyes of a patriotic and vigilant people. Just as soon as the rebellion grounds its arms and asks to form a part of our Union, tbe Government will cheerfully grant tbe re quest. This promise has always been held out to them, aud all the copperheads in the country know it, and especially all the leaders’ who, it is fair to presume, have read the his tory of this war. Let the people bear in mind these important facts, and sure we are they will not fail to vote right in the coining elec tions. The masses are for the Uuion, always 1. _ 1__1 _1___til 1... _1____ false lights, held up by cunning copperheads, should dazzle aud blind them. Webster said, aud the people will always re spond to the sentiment, “1 have not allowed mvself, sir, to look bey and the Union, to see what might lie hidden in the dark recesses be hiud. I have oot coolly weighed the chances of preserving liberty when the bonds that unite us together shall be broken asunder.” No, tbe loyal people bave sworn on the altar of their country, and the recording angel has written down the oath, that the Union shall he preserved, and no separate confederacy be erected upon its ruins. We believe that angel will never bave occasion to drop a tear on the record and blot it out forever. Friends of the Union, be steadfast and true, aud the military power of tbe rebellion will yet be broken, and peace, with all its blessings, will ere long smile upon our beloved country. Mars Hill. To the Editor of the 1‘retf Passiug down from the west end of the Acropolis, and crossing a little valley a few rods wide, you come to the Areopagus or Mars Hill, which you ascend by 10 stone steps hewn in tbe native limestone rock Above these steps, on the level of tbe hill, is a bench of stone, facing tbe south, on which the court of tbe Areopagus used to sit for tbe trial of causes. This was tbe Supreme Court of Athens. On this rock, in tbe open air, at the top of this bill, sat tbe Judg.s. men distinguished alike for their character, rank and official dignity. Mars Hill is not quite as high as the Acropolis, and is thought to haev been very near the centre of ancient Athens, though it is quite outside ol the mod ern city. It was at no great distance from the old market place where Paul bad for a few days been in the habit of conversing with such Greeks as he chanced to meet, on ' the great topic in which be took so deep an ! interest. Then, as now, there were a large number of Greeks “who spent their time in nothing else but either to tell or hear some new thing.” Among them were some men ol I a philosophic turn, Stoics and Epicureans. . wlieee curiosity was excited to hear what ! “ this babbler” bad to say; for he seemed to b3 “a setter forth of strange gods.” So, for the accomodation of all concerned, Paul was requested to go upon Mars Hill and explain bis new doctrines—which no doubt he was very happy to do. A large audience soon gathered, among whom was at least one ol the Judges accustomed to sit there, whose name was Dionysius. He, it seems, was un able to withstand Paul's reasoning and be came a convert. There are, at this day, some slight remains of a church near by, dedicat ed to St. Dionysius, the Areopegite. Look now at the scene before you. Here, 1 in tbe midst of th>s assembly on Mars Hill, stands Paul, lamiliar with Lite Greek tongue, and no stranger to Greek literature. Tem ples of unrivalled beauty and magnificence, dedicaled to heathen gods and goddesses are about him on every baud. The assembly be f .re him is made up cbielly, peihaps wholly, of idnlators; some of whom are men of learning and eloquence and taste, and all ol them exceedingly proud of their Greciau blood. Turn now to the 17th chapter of Acts, and read the speech which the apostle delivered on that occasion—in Greek, if you under j stand It; if not, in good old Anglo-Saxon English. Could anything have been m re beautifully or wisely said, more appropriate to the occasion, or more likely to impress and win such an audience! Certainly it embodies a sublimity and grandeur, and above all au amount of truth touching both God aud man, time aud eternity, such as no Athenian andleuee ever heard before. Xo wonder thai ‘•Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with themjclave unto him and believed.” We have or record, it must be presumed, only a very brief ab , «tract of Paul’s discourse—certaiuly not the whole. With such an audience, in such cir cumstances, it is not for a moment to be imagined ibat the great apostle would occupy only five or ten minutes. He must have ! spoken at least an hour, perhaps two, or more. He was never at a loss for matter suitable and important, and on some occa sions did talk a great while. However, we must he content. This brief abstract is prob ably all we shall ever get. I have done with Mars Hill and I shall leave Athens to day. ' July, 18<U. Aqaukuson. Eeligious and Ecclesiastical Items. The 53d Anniversary of the Cumberland Baptist Association will hold its next annual meeiing with the Main Street Baptisf Church in Brunswick, commencing Tuesday, Aug. -10th, at 2 1-2 oclock P. M. Introductory Sermon by llev. W. H. Shailer, D. D. Tbe 2ilth Anniversary of the Oxford Bap tist Association, will be held with the Church at Turner, commencing at 2 o’clock P.

He goes to California for ‘‘a field.” Four persons were baptised in Acton, by Rev. Mr. Ballanline, on the 24th ult., aud one on the Sunday following. Between two and three hundred persons were confirmed at the Catholic Church, Mill town, on the Sabbath previous to the last. The Right Rev. Bishop Sweeny officiated on the occasion. A collection was taken up among the congregation at the same time, for the purpose of aiding to pay off the debt on the church. The sum thus raised amount ed to *2S00. Rev.

The Democratic press of the Northern States continues its outcry against the Gov ernment of President Lincoln for the crime of having declared the abandonment of slavery a necessary condition of the restoration of the Union. “Now,” say the Opposition presses, “ we have the proof that this is an abolition “ war. We have been told it was a war lor j “ the preservation of the Union and for the j “re-establishment of the authority of the j “ Government in the seceded States, liut \ “here we have Mr. Lincoln’s avowal that it j “is a war for abolition. Not another dollar I ‘ nor another man for such a war.” It is diffi cult for Canadians to comprehend how a large section of the people of the free North can still be so demoralized as to sympathize with such a cry, but it is uudeuiable that the views of a large minority ol the Northern people arc correctly represented by the Democratic press in its disgraceful outcry against the pol icy of making the war a means of removing the curse of slavery from the continent. The rebellion is due Bolely to slavery. That is proved by the concessions, or rather the boasts, oi the rebel leaders. Moreover, only slave States have seceded, while in those por tions of the slave States where slavery is weak the rebellion lias never taken deep bold.— Missouri, Delaware aud Maryland have nevei pretended to secede, though from the sections of them where there are many slaves, the rebel armies have been largely recruited.— Western Virginia, which has but few slaves lias all along been loyal. On the other hand, the rebellion bas been most heartily sustained iu the Gulf States, w here the per centagc oi slaves is the largest—South Carolina, the first State to secede, aud the bitterest iu its hos tility to the Uuion, being pr< -emiuent for its deep interest in slavery. The whole history of the republic exhibits the institution of sla very as the great cause ot political disagree ments between the two sections. The “irre pressible conflict” between free labor and slave labor has rendered harmonious govern ment impossible. No matter how weak tin Federal tie might be—it was too strong to suit all the requirements or the slave power. No matter how ready Northern politicians might be to barter their consciences for office —uo matter how despicable might be their subserviency to the slave-holding iuierest— they could never give enougit. No matter how much the Northern people might be har dened by the cultivation of prejudice against the colored mao—no matter how much theii consciences might be appeased by the doc trine that the iniquities of the South were no concetti of theirs—they could never become sufficiently indifferent to the dictates of hu manity to assent quietly to all that the deal ers in human llesh would demand. Incessant warfare was the inevitable result. When at last the struggle eventuated in au appeal to arms—when the slave-power undertook a gi gantic war in the interest ol its slavery—it be came the clear duty of the Federal Govern ment aud the Northern people to divorce themselves at once and forever from all fur ther complicity with the accursed batbaristn which wrought the mischief. If, iu theory, the Federal stalesmeu could not hold that by their rebellion the secesaiouialB had forfeited all implied couslilulioual protection for their property in slaves, they had at least the war power to warrant them in declaring boldly for emancipation. We know how long they hesi tated—we know how much opportunity was given to the rebellious States to return to the Union with slavery still a recognized and pro tected institution. We know, too, what may have been the reasons for that. A hope to conciliate the hesitating border Slates, and a fear of the despicable pro-slaver; sentiments i so prevalent in many sections of the North, may have caused the government at Washing ion to hesitate at a step which might alienate so many of the doubtful Unionists, who were | for the Union ouiy on condition that its res toration did not emancipate the bondsmen ol the South. But at length the time came when : the Washington Cabinet, after due notice, did decree the emancipation of the slaves in the States iu rebellion, and at the same time pledged the whole military and moral power of the Government to the carrying out ol that decree. This act was done most solemn ly and deliberately. Congress, the representa tive of the people, declared for the same poli cy, aud iu many ways endorsed the action ol the Government, the Northern people contin ued at the Stale elections to elect the candi dates of the Goverumcut by large majorities. The honor of the people aud the government was as lirmly bound aud pledged as it could be to a strict adherence to the letter and spir j it of the proclamation of emancipation. But, iu the face of all this—in defiance of ! all considerations of justice, of sound public policy, and ot public faith and honor—a great party at the North regards as its strongest electioneering card the declaration of Mr. Liucolu that he means to stand honorably by the solemn act of his Government. We can hardly conceive of anything more utterly dis graceful. The civilized world regards the pi rate who steals the colored man from his home aud sells him into bondage, as au inhu man monster. Death is the punishment ev erywhere prescribed for bis crime. But men calling themselves Chrisliaus, men pretendiug to intelligence and respectability, men pro fessing to lead the public opinion of a free and civilized country—are found proposing that the United States Government should, whom it has declared tree hack into bondage. All ilie dishonorable deeds ever charged upon | the Washington Government, by its worst en emies sink into insignificance by tnu side ol the baseness which such a barter would in volve. It could lie no justiiieauon ol the treachery which should retract the decree of | "mancipation, to say that those who made • that decree have not succeeded in giving it practical effect, except to a very limited ex j tent. They are, bound to make good their I pledge if they can. If they cannot, they are bound by all that is decent, and by all that is honorable, not to make protit bv the repudia tion of a sacred obligation. The emancipa lion decree has tieen used to recruit the ar mies ol the North. By it thousands of the I race whose freedom i' guaranteed, have beeu induced to sacrifice their lives in the service I i of the Federal Government. Mauy more of them have fallen victim to the murderer’s ! band after being captured by the rebel troops. 1 The promise that induced sacrifices like these—the promise that has purchased the | Mood of thousands of men—could not be bro ! ken without covering the government that did it with the deepest disgrace. We do not tielieve that there is the slightest danger that Mr. Lincoln and hi« advisers can possibly be I induced to Incur that disgrace. We do not tielieve that a majority of the Northern people can possibly be prepared to ask their rulers ! to incur lasting dishonor In that wav. It is I quite humiliating enough for the Northern i States that an influential minority of their people should he ready and anxious for such a thing. Eev. Mr. Hauuicutt. This gentleman will deliver a lecture at Saccarappa, in the Congregational meeting house, to-morrow (Sabbath) evening. Ser vices to commence at half past seven o'clock Whosoever desires tojlearn the real cause and charactet of the rebellion, and what the loyal, union-loving and slavery-hating men of the South undergo, in a manner at once graphic and touching, may fully gratify that desire by listening to Uev. Mr. Hauuicutt. We have heard the intimation of a doubt | whether such services are suited to the sa creduess or consistent with the solemn ser vices of the day. The doubt may proceed from honest convictions; but we are iucliued to the opinion that it savors more of the spirit which animated the Jews of old, and which the Saviour pointedly condemned. There Is no fitter time to condemn a moral evil, as there is none better to commend a worthy object, than the blessed Sabbath ; and whosoever improves the day in this manner is wise: for the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. I *, I A Patriotic Letter. We are permitted to publish the following patriotic letter from a young man in the army to his sister in Gray. It breathes the right spirit, and we trust his ‘near and dear friends’ lu Gray will imbibe the same spirit and stand boldly up to the defence of our Government and Uuion against all Northern Copperheads and all Southern traitors, until tho glorious old llag shall float over every iuch of our ter territory. Memphis, Tenu., Julydl, lStU. Dear Sister—Tours of the bth iust, reach ed me by way of Wis. I was very glad to hear from you. 1 am glad indeed you feel so live ly au interest in the cause of our lieloved coun try—assailed by traitors at home as well as a qroad. 1 have seen too much hard service not to detest a Copperhead from the bottom ol my heart. Aud it this Government is ever brok en up it will be the work ol the detested Cop perhead. It pains me to think that while I am lighting to sustain the Government, 1 have near friends in the town of Gray, the home of my happy childhood, and the place to which my thoughts in later years have oft in pleasure wandered, who are doing all they can to break it up. Tnis rebellion would have been crush ed long ago, had it not beeu lor traitors at Home. Could you go with mo to the battle-field aud see our true men, gallaul, brave and noble men, reely, cheerfully, offering up their lives, look iug death calmly in the lace, and then tell me you blame me lor despising the sneaking,cow irdly Copperhead, who would submit to any tliing, no matter how Uumble.rather than tight ? Aud then to excuse themselves they say it is m abolition war aud ‘T will not tight to free she niggers,” and tor fear they may be forced o tlgui, vote to have the war stopped, let the consequences to the cottutry be what they nay. The negroes are saints compaired with ,uch. They will fight, and light desperately. vVe have a negro brigade w ith us that did good fighting ou our last expedition. I never lefore believed tbey would light so well. Fort Pillow was tlieir cry, aud many a lleb. bit the dust with Fort Pillow riugiug in his ears. On the morning of the otu of July we left our line of communication and marched to cut the Ohio aud Mobile ltaiiroad. We mat ched about ninety miles, often flaukiug the enemy, to avoid|itgliting him in his chosen position, till we arrived near Tupelo, where a bloody oatlle was fought on the 14ih ol July, in which uir brigade took a conspicuous part. Gen. A. 1. Smith had managed to get a good position m a bill on the nignt of the of 1 :Jth after a rap id march of 18 miles, arriviug there at 0 P. M. '" v " V.» > f f V M*. IV Minnc Icauj or the light. The enemy was reported ad vancing iu three. Our troops were soon on m the move, getting into position. After s< me ehauging of position the 33d Wisconsin, with .lve or six other regiments, was ordered up to -upport the main battery on the bill where it ♦as expected the hardest fighting would be lone. As soon as we had got our position, l ♦as ordered forward with my company to kirmish with the enemy, uow plainly seen ad vancing in three lines of battle. I advanced 10 our picket line, deployed my men aud mov ed forward and was soon engaged in a corn field on the bottom. There was no faltering, no hanging back; all were eager for the fight. tVe continued to advance, tiriug rapidly till ,ny Lieut., whom I had instructed to watch my left llank, {we could not see but a short listance in the corn) infoimed me that the 'kirinishers ou my left bad fallen back and that we were being llanked, when I fell back slow ly, firing as last as my men could load their pieces. The enemy were making a charge, old the air was thick with cauuon shot over nv head. I fell back nearly to our line and 'ormed on the right as Hankers. The charge was repulsed with great slaughter, but the enemy rallied and came ou again with the same succes. Our force supporting the bat teres was now ordered to charge which was xecuved iu gallant style, and the enemy was driven from the field. When the charge on our part commenced, I was ordered forward with several other skirmish companies to take and hold a bill which the enemy occupied. The order was successfully executed alter a sharp skirmish. Our main force fell hack to their former position and I remained about a mile iu Iront to watch the movement of the en emy. He formed behind a point of timber, threw a few shell at my skirmish line, then fell back into the timber. The fight lasted from six o’clock in the morning till ten. In frout of our Little force, less than 3000, supporting the battery on the hill, lay about 300 dead rebs and 135 wounded which the enemy had been unable to remove, during the light, tho’ they were carrying off their dead and wound ed nearly all the time. The hardest part of the fighting was done here. The whole force of rebels under Forest wasahout 15000 and ours about the same. They acknowledge a 1 >ss in killed and wounded ol 3400, but I think it wa< greater. Our whole loss in this fight in killed and wounded was less than 400. iVrest was wounded, his brother, a Colonel, and his son, a Captain, were killed. Gen. Faulkner was also killed. We had a flight on the 13th aud 15th, >n which I took an active part, but have neither time or space to give a further account. I am iu hopes I shall have a chance to rest to-morrow, before commencing another long and weary march through tho heat and dust, (.should rejoice to hear that all mv near and dear friends were active supporters of the Ad ministration in its eff>rts to put down the re bellion.

The buffalo Conner oi yesterday gays: “It has been known mat Fari.n, lue luuainoulisl, ♦Uo several years ago was bloudiu's rival on the light rope at Niagara Falls, - was making preparations to lord the rapids above the American Fall ou a pair ol iron stills, con trived lor the purpose.

He succeeded in getting more thau half way across, at a point between the tails anil the Goat Island bridge, wheu one of his stilts broke or gave away, aud he was instantly iu the rapids. F'oriuuately the place ol his acci deut was directly above Kuhiusou’s island, a small piece ol wooded land which lies to the right of Luna island, aud very near the brink ol the American Fall. “He succeeded iu slruggiiug to the shore ol this island, and dragged himself from the wa ter. He had apparently sustained a painful iuiurv in one of his limbs. The nnor man was soon discovered silling very composedly ou a log at the edge oi the island. A large aud not very sympathizing crowd collected on the Goat Island bridge aud elsewhere, but up Co yesterday afternoon not an effort had been made to rescue the unfortunate man. In fact our informant tells us that iu a few flours pub lic curiosity seemed to have sated itself, aud scarcely auy excitement was visible. Furiui’s frightful perch is about eight hundred or oue thousand feet below the bridge before spoken of, and undoubtedly a rope could be floated to him, and thereby a cable perhaps lie swung, by which,if the man is not too much exhaust ed or Injured, ho might be able to effect au es cape, it is feared, however, that before auy iliing is done bo will be incapable from lack of food and nervous excitement to help himself. “At present he can be distinctly descried, cool enough, apparently, but making not tin slightest effort to attract attention or sigual for relief. He is iu his tights aud bare headed, aud is seen frequently to rub and press his wounded limb. A more frightful perdicament than he is in, could not easily tie couceived We understand that some persons suppose F.i riui to be playing a practical joke, or to be praeticiug an advertising dodge. It is scarce ly possible that this can lie the esse or that any such felicitous results can come from such a desperate state of things.” P.

A Little too Fast.—There is no truth in the statement that the expenses of tile Con gressional Excursionists are paid by Uncle Sam, and those who make it know better, or they ought to know it. Some folks are very easily nettled, we are sorry to say, and let i their spleen run away with their better feel ings. Tlie expenses of this excursion, which is for the public benefit, and especially for the ■ best interests of Maine, were raised by sub scription in this city, our merchants and oth ers contributing liberally. Other cities and towns east of us will do the same, and Uncle Sam is the gainer instead of the loser in this | operation. Such false reports show a weak head or an envious heart. Let those who make them take the dilemma they please. The Price oe the Boston Dailvs Increased.—The following announcement appears in the Boston Daily Papers, sighed by their respective publishers: Owing to the increas d prices of paper, ink, labor, and all that enters into the cost of a newspaper, the proprietors of the Daily Ad vertiser.
