VIRGINIA AND RICHMOND.
We closed our list artiole with the meet
log of tho prat Legislature on the American
continent. This body was called together
by the proclamation of Sir George Yeard
ley, Governor of Virglsia, which declared
teat those small laws; by which the plan'
ten bsd been so long governed, were r.ow
abrogated, and that they were to bo gov
trned by thoso free laws, which bis Majes
ty's subjects lived under In Kogland. That
the planters might have a hand In the gov
eralojf of themselves, It was granted that
a general Assembly should be held once o
year, whereat were to be present tb Gov
ernor and coonsell with two burgesses, or
represeotstives, from each plantation, freely
to be elected by tho inhabitants thereof;
this asseroby to bava power to maks and
ordain whatever laws and orders thought
by. them to be good and prcS'.sbic fcr their
Their first laws were quaint, but Sir I'M
win Sandys is justified in saylog " the laws
were very well and judiciously formed.'
This Assembly enacted that the church of
England was confirmed as the church of
Virginia, it was intended that the first four
ministers should each receive two huoJrcd
pounds a year; all persons whatever, upon
the Sabbath days were to frequent divine
service and sermons both forenoon and af
ternoon; and all such as bore arms lo bring
their pieces or swords. Grant of land like
the Oregon Donation Act, cot for tho farm
ers only, but for their wives, because, in a
sw country, It Is not known whether man
or woman is the most necessary. Meas
ures were adopted lowsrds the erecting of
a University and College.
It was also enacted that of the children
of the Indians the most premising boys in
wit and graces of nature, should be brought
up la the first elements of literature, and
seat from lb college to Hie work of coo
Tertlog the natives to tho Christian relfg
lea. Penalties were appointed for ifi lenesj,
gambling with dice or cards, and druo.W
s. Excess In apparel was taxed Jo
church for all,pablic contributions.

encircling Iho crowded Immensity of the
universe of God, the human mind, the son!
of man, Is, In t earch of light, Inclined to
attest Its own eternity and nMtrt its free
dom. No man can look nt himself, nnd in
deep sollcltndo contemplate his destiny,
without discovering soma aoble attribute
of bis Intellectual and moral nature, which
is susceptible, by correct teaching, ol
high cnlllvnllon : er, by slothful Indiffer
ence, of unlimited degradation. How must
any system, ostensibly rcvrnling man's ori
gin, ditty nnd destiny, therefore rise up In
mnjrsly and brighten In splendor, lo the
anxious inquirer after light and truth,
Immortality, guilt ar.d danger, arc Intui
tions of our common nature, frought with
Ihc deepest solicitude, to every reflecting
mind. How can we forecast Its jsiucs, or
determln conditions, paramount to time,
and lilting as eternity? As naturo does
not furnish us a sufficient guide, the ad
ditional question arises whither shall we
torn for light and guidance ?
ITopcand fsr, in advance of all state
ment or reasoning-, anddespltc all oppoIog
theories, are turned at onee to the revela
tions of Christianity as alone able to solve
the mystery; and we are thus led to con
template, with calmness and candor, upon
the origin, duly, and destiny of man. No
man can turn to this revelation, without
finding it a subject warm with light and
life, unrivaled In truth, simplicity and lov-
Itness in its mission to exalt and dignify
our common nature. It provides, for the
justification of his person and the rrgener
ation of Iiia .nature. It nerves and sus
tains him in the resuncltion of sin, the
practice ol virtue, furnishes him with n
correct estimate of earth, and Is his chart
of the world to come. The dispensation
under which wc live, Is rifo alike with wis
dom and warning. Infinite gocdccis has
never slumbered n moment over tho vast
Interests the all comprehending deslng, of
bringing the featured tribes oflho earth to
the arms of mercy, and numbering them
with the family of God. The agency of
this grand mlllenUI change belongs to
God, tho instrumentality tnthegorpel. As
a nitride of heavenly creation, it contains
within Itself the principles of boundless in
crease, and shall spread through eiery clime
and under every sky until the voices of
piety, tho harps of Zion nnd the hymns of
her joy shall everywhere fling to the beud
ing heavens and listening earth, their sweet
and varied melody. Hut although the
gospel of God is thus bright and benign
to all who do not reject it ; yet, lo those
who do it is tho herald of wrath in Iho last
not less than of lovo In the first instance.
We have here the goodness and severity,
the mercy, ai.'d Ihs holimss'of God.
We meet nitii a similar exhibition of
counterative elements and antagonistic Ibi
polscs, tbrosghoai the -economy of univer
sal being, and their presence here need not
surprise us. And here thu word of God
promises the desired illumination that shall
ecomo coextensive with .universal man,
and shall be perennUI as Iho wauls of his
being and the corresponding rf.',T of the
Redeemer. Truth shall everywhere tri
umph iu the destruction of error and slo,
and darkness recede before the light of
Heaven. These principles are found In vhc
deep foundation of tho vast superstructure
of Nature, I'rovldeaec ami Grace. Ilea v.
en, in kindness to our world, has held aloft
the beacon light as a standard of reviving
virtue, the signal or reformation and the
dawn of hope.

to constitute the morning and evening

Of what avail, havo been the vague
gutsies sent forth from time to time, like
Noahe dove, from the Irall ark of mill's
reason, to hover over the dark snd unfatlr

lessons of phllunlhroplc meekness; Homer,
with gorgeouiucsi of fiction ; Archimedes,
with the unadulterated calculations of phy.

teachings furnished no haven of blissful
