A WAR FOR ABOLITION. – The Rev. Dr. Tyng, of this city, famous for several years past for his fondness for commingling politics and religion together in the pulpit, has been holding forth at the anniversary of the Boston American Tract Society during the past week. The reverend gentleman, among other things, uttered the following:
“Slaveholding – that is, holding men and women in bondage – was a crime. Hear me (added he, as they were uproarious with applause), slavery ought to be abolished – slavery must be abolished – slavery will be abolished – by this war. If to believe that and to work for it is Abolitionism, then I’m an Abolitionist.
“Quoting from a South side clergyman, who argued that slavery was a divine institution – ‘Yes,’ said the Doctor, ‘as hell is a divine institution, and destined I hope, to go to the devil with the close of this war.’”
Comment upon such language is unnecessary. It is simply revolting. – N. Y. News.
