re made, showing a high state of religious feeling throughout the army. The great success of the army is due to the religious element which reaches every corner of it; whilst, on the other hand, I am very much disposed to fear, from what I have been told by officers who have served in the army of Tennessee, that the lack of success of that army is due, in a large measure, to the want of religious influence upon the troops.--Cor. Richmond Dispatch. In the Virginia House of Delegates, Mr. Hutcheson offered a series of resolutions deprecating the Amnesty Proclamation of President Lincoln as degrading to freemen, that, having calmly counted the cost and weight, the dangers and difficulties, necessary for the achievement of the rights and independence they covet, the people of the Old Dominion spurn with contempt the proffered pardon and amnesty. --five military executions took place in the respective divisions to which they belonged, in the army of the Potomac.--Commodore Gershom J.

The enemy feels Field's skirmishers strongly late in the afternoon. At. night Mahone's division is sent to the left of Field to hold the Shady Grove road.

Hutcheson, one of our couriers, killed at 10 A. M. The enemy begins a series of attacks on Field's position; they continue at times during the entire day; all of them repulsed until 7 P. M., when the last and most desperate is made against Anderson and Gregg. Some of the enemy succeed in gaining the works, but are killed in them. The attack is repulsed with great slaughter to the enemy and little loss to us. At the same hour (7 P. M.) an attack is made on Ewell's lines, and succeeds in breaking th

Its aims were excellent, and it was the first secret society that admitted both men and women to membership. Hutcheson, Francis, philosopher; born in County Down, Ireland, Aug. 8, 1694; was Professor of Moral Philosophy in Glasgow in 1729-46. He clearly perceived the coming independence of the English-American colonies. When, he inquired, have colonies a righence was the primary aim of the Americans. Governor Shirley tried to allay the apprehension by declaring that the various governments of the colonies had such different constitutions that it would be impossible for them to confederate in an attempt to throw off the British yoke. At all events, he said, they could not maintain such an independency without a strong naval force, which it must forever be in the power of Great Britain to hinder them from having. Hutcheson died in Glasgow in 1746.

h and excellence, of the scriptures, and the thankful esteem with which Christians ought to receive and practically improve them. During his residence at Warrington, Dr. Taylor published an Examination of the Scheme of Morality advanced by Dr. Hutcheson, late Professor of Moral Philosophy in the University of Glasgow; and a Sketch of Moral Philosophy, for the use of his class. In the first of these pamphlets, the author endeavours to refute Hutcheson's view of our perceptions of moral distiHutcheson's view of our perceptions of moral distinctions as founded on a supposed moral sense or instinctive principle; a notion to which he was strongly opposed. His own opinions on the disputable questions in moral science seem to have most nearly resembled those maintained by Dr. Clarke, and, more recently, by Dr. Price in his Review of the principal Questions in Morals. This tract was received with less favour by various members of his own denomination than a production of Dr. Taylor's might seem entitled to expect; a circumstance to be

Not a statesman exposed its enormities; and, if Richard Baxter echoed the opinions of Puritan Massachusetts; if Southern drew tears by the tragic tale of Oronooko; if Steele awakened a throb of indignation by the story of Inkle and Yarico; if Savage and Shenstone pointed their feeble couplets with the wrongs of Afric's sable children; if the Irish metaphysician Hutcheson, struggling for a higher system of morals, justly stigmatized the traffic; yet no public opinion lifted its voice against it. English ships, fitted out in English cities, under the special favor of the royal family, of the ministry, and of parliament, stole from Africa, in the years from 1700 to 1750, probably a million and a half of souls, of whom one eighth were buried in the Atlantic, victims of the passage; and yet in England no general indignation rebuked the enormity; for the public

Those who once promised opposition to the measure resolved rather to sustain it, and the very next winter was to introduce the new policy. Bollan to the Speaker of Mass. Assembly. The civilized world was just beginning to give to the colonies the attention due to their futurity. Hutcheson, the greatest British writer on ethics of his generation,—who, without the power of thoroughly reforming the theory of morals, knew that it needed a reform, and was certain that truth and right have a foundation within us, though, swayed by the material philosophy of his times, he sought that foundation not in pure reason, but in a moral sense,—saw no wrong in the coming independence of America. When, he inquired, have colonies a right to be released from the dominion of the parent state?
king treated with great coolness all his servants who voted for the repeal. We have been beaten, said Bedford to the French minister, but we have made a gallant fight of it. If the Scottish members, elected as they then were by a dependent tenantry, or in the boroughs by close corporations, voted to enforce the tax, the mind of Scotland was as much at variance with its pretended representatives in parliament, as the intelligence of France was in antagonism to the monarchy of Louis XV. Hutcheson, the reforming moralist of the north, had, as we have seen, declared as an axiom in ethics, the right of colonies to be independent when able to take care of themselves; David Hume confessed himself at heart a republican; Adam Smith, at Glasgow, was teaching the youth of Scotland the natural right of industry to freedom; Reid was constructing a system of philosophy, based upon the development and freedom of the active powers of man; and now, at the relenting of the House of Com- chap.
