Review of the Statement of the Faculty of Lane Seminary in Relation to the Recent Difficulties in that Institution

institution in the Protestant world.  And it is the more surprising 

that it was made for those who are acknowledged to be talented and 

pious. -- There is another regulation no less surprising.  "Ordered that 

the executive committee has power to dismiss any student from the 

Seminary, when they shall think it necessary so to do."  [crossed out word "so"] This surely 

is a short method of doing business.  This is the only way purge out 

the Abolitionists; when no crime can be alleged against them, dis-

miss them without crime and without trial.  These are some of 

the regulations made to avert from Lane Seminary the evils 

occasioned by the existence of the abolition society. -- There is 

reason to apprehend that these regulations will yet give the 

trustees and faculty more trouble than the evils they were 

designed to avert.  It is no matter of wonder that "the 

religious newspapers and religious men and Christian min-

isters" sustained the students in seceding from an insti-

tution under such regulations.

     Let us now examine the reasons on which these sev-

ere and unprecedented measures were founded.
