These posi-. tioas are sustained by Section 1. Article 13th, title “Hill of Rights,” in the Con-I ►titutiou of Kentucky, which is as follows: I “That all freemen, when they form a so cial compact, arc equal, and that no man, ! or act of men are entitled to exclusive, separate public emoluments or privileges from the community, but in considcra- 1 tiou of public services.” And also by i Section 0, same title and article, in which ! it is declared: ‘‘That the civil rights, i privileges or capacities of any citizen shall in no wise be diminished or enlarged ou Recount of his religion.” It was the design of the framers of those instruments to prevent a union of Church and State; to prevent the interference of; politics with religion, or religion with noli-1 , tics; to define and separate secular from j spiritual duties; and in my judgment, to ignore and discountenance all test oaths in I the performance of religious coicmonios. | The ministers of the Gospel, remembering all our fathers had suffered from this, me morialized the Convention which framed our Constitution upon this subject, and it was this very grievance, to wit; a test oath, as a condition precedent to soletu ti lling marriages, which called forth the ever-to-bo-remembered complaints and protests of the clergy in Virginia, espe cially from the Baptists and Pres byte- : rians, about eighty years ago, in the V]*-, • ginia Rouse of Delegates, which gat|d I birth to Mr. Jefferson’s immortal bill far’ religious freedom. It seeuiti to me the bill is framed/ upon the fallacious assumption Chat, because the 1 civil government sees fit to make use of ministers of the Gospel, to accommodate and protect itself from frauds in the perluteudeiice of the civil contract of mar jdnjjc, therefore they are civil officers. • Riot ought to he required to take the above With to support the Constitution, with the DEVOTED TO LITERATURE.

A man cannot support the Con i stilution and at the same time commit | treason. Solemnizing marriage is a re-• i ligious duty; *0 held by alt tbe ministers : who perform it. The Catholics hold the | rite of matrimony a sacrament (others so : hold baptism) instituted by Christ, and by Him invested with all the sacrcdness in it* order that belongs to the others. It is regarded by them, ns by all other de nominations, as a religious act; and as citizens of the Commonwealth, their rights under the Constitution ought not to be diminished or interfered with by unncces- ■ ■ sary and annoying requirements. j In this abridgment of their rights the! [clergy may become justly alarmed, believ ing that Ibis test oath may liccome the wedge to others that may be en acted with as much reason, restricting ■ them in the full anti free exercise of all . ■ other religious rights. Ry this dangcr- Boos precedent all others may be swept ■wwny from them. Cannot the Legisla- 1 Hdre, following the same policy, with as Siiucb propriety require n similar oath be- 1 fre any other religious rite can bo per ofbrmed—the rite of baptism, the burial I ■service, the holy communion, or any other ! J religious duly enjoined in the different systems and modes of worship? Why not, with the same propriety, require j them to take the oath before they can be ' permitted to preach from the pulpit V Why | not, with the same propriety, discriminate between Catholics and Protestants? For, I not many years ago, the spirit of intol erance and religious persecution was so . rife in our country that a powerful party j j was formed upon the idea, that their faith] was inconsistent with our institutions, and j which threatened fora time the destruction I of their church, and, as I believe, of the Constitution. If the right exists, and it be good policy to administer these oaths to all the clergy as a class, precedent to the performance of i this duty, may it nut, with equal proprie ty, be claimed that you can discriminate between *thc various denominations of 'Christians, and may not the Protestants i impose test oaths on Catholics, or the I Catholics upon the Protestants, if they j happen to have political power, or tiiej ; Protestants, as they widely differ in their) i political opinions, impose them upon each other, under the caprice or prejud ee o; the hour? I think the principle and puli ,ey all wrong, and dangerous in the cx . treinc. I therefore object to the bill— -1 First.—Recause it strikes a r/nss of our citizens, and that the best and most self sacrificing of our citizens, as a class ' whose duties have no connections with j polities, and who are the mini.-tors of God, to attend to our spiritual welfare. 1 ! • would not make this a political question, i If the bill becomes a law, it cannot be •avoided; and while I do not believe it will do any good in any view I can lake of it, I fear it will produce additional bitterness and strife, especially at this time, when all our effort* should he directed to soothe and allay the terrible excitement now rag ing throughout ithc land. Let us render I unto Caisar the things that arc Cassar’s, and unto God tie things that are God’s, and keep Church and State divided iu the spirit of our institutions. Second. —It U partial and unequal ; an imputation upon the clergy, proceeding upon the erroneous idea, 1 believe, that the clergy, as a class, are disloyal—no such test being required of other civil of ficers who have the right to solemnize mar- I riage. Third. —I object to it because the gol- i emnizution of marriage by a minister is ‘ purely a religious ordinance, so far as the [ , minister has any relation to it. lie is not i in any real sense, a civil officer iu the i transaction ; the civil government makes vse of him merely as a convenience in ef -1 feeling and proving a civil contract al i ready made by the parties (fftcret ted through the clerk of the county court, and therefore, has not heretofore required of him the oath administered to civil officers, j What be does in solemnizing marriage is as purely an ordinance of worship as ad ministering baptism, or burial cf the dead, I or the Eucharist, or conducting any rc- j ligious service. In proof of this, we need only appeal to the fact that in the Roman Catholic Church the solemnizing of mar riage is a sacrament, just as much as bap tism in other churches. In Protestant! churches the order fur the Solemnizing of marriage, whilst not a sacrament, is yet a part of the ritual of worship. In the Presbyterian Church, it is foun 1 iu their church government, as you will find it in that of the other church ordinances, as the commu.iioo, baptism, confirmation, and' the burial of the dead. It seems to me, therefore, to he jiust as proper to enact that ministers of the Gospel shall not ad minister baptism, or confirmation, or bury the dead, except ou first taking a test oath to the civil government, as not to solcLtn-' nizc marriage. I‘ourth. —lf it be insisted that marriage be also a civil contract, and the minuter a civil officer in effecting the contract, the answer is obvious. The State cauuut know ministers of the Gospel as suJi, hut only as a class of citizens, to whom, at a matter of convenience, and cut of respect to popular feeling and usage, the Slate * very properly entrusts tlfo public evidenc ing of the contract. The recognition of them as civil public (fficers is the very es sence of Church and .State ; and evidently, j heretofore, our laws have not intended this, as they have requirad no orxtK-of office, but ■imply a license from the county court to protect against imposition. If i am cor- ) ' reel iu this statement of the case, the pro posed enactment is clearly contrary to the’ spirit of our Constitution, and of the great ; American principle of the entire separation between the civil and spiritual government. | The very term stJemnizr, suggests the ori- . gin of the marriage ceremony as religious, • and not civil. Fifth.—The whole matter of test oaths j is specially odious to every American free -1 man acquainted with the history of the struggles against tyranny which won our free system. It was the test oath, on ac- * i count of which the martyrs of English ( liberty cheerfully suffered. Thera it was ; against the religious test as a oendition | precedent to civil rights. ply adopts tba conreritfr proposition, in my | judgment, to wit: civil test oath as a con dition precedent to the exercise of purely ; religious functions. While I condemn in ! the most unqualified terms, the practice | resorted to by some dangerous, some in- ; discreet and I am reluctantly compelled to : say, bml men, of preaching politics from the pulpit, or otherwise desecrating their ] sacred calling in their newspapers eil'u i sions. I am free to say. it is as much con trary, in my judgment, to the American | doctrine of religious liberty, to require a j civil test oath in order to perform a reli | gious office, as to require a religious test j oath in order to exercise civil privileges. 1 Sixth.—The enactment, if intended to ! protect society against treasonable preach- . ers, is altogether needless, since ministers and priests arc not privileged classes, but simply private citizens, and amenable to ' penalties fur more terrible than the loss of; I a marriage fee, for doing any of the j things which this oath binds them not to do. Seventh. —If the enactment be intended to catch anti-Lincolnitj ministers, or force them uji to the fanaticism of a malignant > ' religious loyalty, it is utterly ineffective, j j The operation of the law will bo most like ! ly this, with all except the most fanatical and avaricious of the ministers, to wit; the minister culled on to discharge this pleas ant office of religion for any of his ffoek, will advise them with the license to secure the services of the neighboring justice of the peace, or some brother who is not u non-juror like himself. He will let them perform the civil part of the duty in wit | ncssing and certifying the contract, anA,. then proceed himself with the usual reli- j j cious cx< r< isos. T lieu we w ill see wheth- , i er the grand jury will indict him for the crime of praying. Ido not believe that! one preacher iu four Will take the oath , I and if 1. am not greatly mistaken, some of the most ardent Union men will be the first to refuse it. j Eighth.—The inevitable effect of the j enactment, as I believe, will be to stir up intense feeling for and against ministers, i und add fuel to the present bitterness. — ■ Its effect, as I think, will be to confirm the present tendency of our religious peo-1 pic to adopt and ape the miserable mix- ; ing up of civil and religious ideas in refer ence to the ministry, which have hereto-1 fore distinguished Now England, and out • of which has grown the clerical leadership in civil things, and consequently abolition preaching, out of which has grown our present troubles. Relieving, as I do, after much reffcc ' tion, that the law can do no g*>od. espe-, dally as the danger to Kentucky has passed, and that it will be an unnecessary annoyance to the clergy , who do not need such aset of loyalty, 1 respectfu ly return it to you for n consideration, with these, my reasons, for withholding my signature. • R.

BY MYKA VAN* Why is it that I love only dark, fierce'' beauty, and hate azure eyes, and rose bud lips, and sunny hair?

I learned that at school, where I learned many other things, some well i enough in their way—some, it had been belter for me hud 1 never known. There were strange looks and covert! smiles at the old-f:u-luoned dresses, that: I didn’t understand then.

My uncle came for me, j then ; he came with a bowed form and crape on his hat, and took my hand in ' ■ his very tremblingly, as the tears, one i after another, trickled down his furrowed face. “She is gone, Myra—gone; and we arc alone—all alone.” “Who uncle ?” “Your aunt. Up yonder, Myra.” And ho pointed where white, ghostly clouds were sailing over the far-off sky. j “Dead, uncle ? Aunt dead ?’’ “No, not dead, Myra—not dead ; only gone with the pale boatman over the river ; only gone to a land of fairer skies and purer love than this — to a laud where the flowers never close and the summer is forever.” That was the land of my dreams. Was * it true that I should not se*c the land of my longing with these earthly eyes? Was it only in heaven that peace and sunshine . ever lingered ? “We will go to Brighton, Myra; 1 can't stay iu the old house when she isn’t ( there. .“She was my first love, Myra—-the one love of my life ; an 1 I feel now that, iu our devotion to each oilier, we were •' hardly just to you.
