President Tyler has appointed Friday, the 14th day of May, to be observed as a National Fast throughout the United States, at which time all the people of every denomination are invited to meet for solemn worship, according to their respective creeds and forms, to acknowledge their dependence upon the Almighty Disposer of events, in view of the removal of the President of the United States by death. All must be convinced that the present is a very appropriate time for this nation to humble itself before Heaven. And to the above call we give our heart's response; merely suggesting that the enslaved millions in our land should come in for a large share in our sympathies and prayers on the occasion. Let us also pray that God would dispose the hearts of our rulers to ''undo the heavy burdens and let the oppressed go free."
