To the Editor,

Dear Sir,

It is fully admitted, by all who receive the Scared Scriptures as the rule of their faith and conduct, that rise and fall of states, kingdoms, and empires, are under the Divine superintendence, and that of course however second causes operate, it is God, the Supreme Governor, who puts down one and lifts up another.

Closely connected with these evident truths, is the following, namely, that national sins are, sooner or later, followed by national punishments. Without pretending to scrutinize the mysteries of Divine Providence we may in many cases, trace the punishments of nations to their proper cause.
