The Legislature f Kentucky, last winter, by
act, Called upon lb people of the State lo ay
whether they would have a Coxvintio to es
tablish a new Constitution.
Tha holding of a convention, nlwava import
ant, is especially ae mow. for it iavolve the
coMideration and aettlenient of quest ion of vast
magnitude ; -questions which ought to rcccife
and which will receive, doubtleati, the beat
thought and closest exarainLtioa ot ahich our
' whole community are capable.
There can be, legally, no limit to the discus
ton of theee questions, thus authoritatively and
solemrJy broached by the highest authority,
. J .1 . - 1 1 1 . ... . - 1 - 1 ... ....
in 'may quarter, to hedge in the liUrty of the
pre, or txaroel epeech, w hile these privilege
are exercised with a just regard to th peace i f
the community, and the iategrity of the law.
Lren that moat tutncult problem ol all rmaa'i
pattern may be fully and fearlessly presents!,
if ita advocates be thus gvtarded : for uu riplit
is mora sacred, ia Kentucky, than that iualkn
able and fundamental rij.it, which secure to
every citizen "the liberty to know, to utter, to
argue according to ctiuacieuce."
Nor could aay doubt -cxuit, on this poiut, were
it not for those causes, external and internal
which, -lc the last few years. Lave, arrested
the discussion f alnwy t y the prcus over the
State. These are :
I. The violence widi Luh the subject of
slavery has been agitated f of the slave Stat?
There has been no form of exaggerated speech
no laiiguaga iu which wrath could be clothed
which has uot been used ugaiust those ho live
ainid aiavsrj :. T"he characteristics of too ina IV
i of the Drofeased adrocates of freedom, liv
ing fas, aa-ay from tha evil which the) drec-d,
have been, vehemence, and excex. They have
made no silowaace for tint education an t
iaga of a aUveholding couunaarty.' The great
juwkux if "emancipation, therefore hi--h
ahoald always be presented without passion, and
urged In a spirit of love, and generous good a ill,
has been involved in a stoma of fierce oonrlia'f ,
and people hsva been lwildored by exejie
uient, or fired by passion, as not to se or Vaow
the truth, -or, at least, lots to utter it. ik-iety,
anacstiocaiilyhen stagnant, uee Isa wh ill
wind blast to purify it, and to as. .liut where
there is virtue and intelJjrertyX enough to
hear and coualoer tmthvTtrr'rtue anger of t'te
Ftorai without, will ouly rntindie a ruder anger
within. Violence, 'iuvsrialdv. begets violence.
and all that the best of u cau do, at such times,
is,. to watch the excitenteut as it wears aw) ;
and then, to Sabor and to w it.

The courts iu the slave Slates, as a general
rule, do thiir duty, whenever the freedom of the
colored man is concerned, and planters invaria

We are uot sure that the following statement
is correct; but out conviction is, that it U so,
A negro, some years ago, was delivered up in,
and taken from, Ohio, as a slave, without diffi
culty, and carried into Louisiuua. When there,
he,j-rWMi story, interested slave-holders in his
behalf, ilued for his freedom, and obtained it!
The wong that was tolerated in Ohio, would
not be submitted to iu Luuiaiauu.
Auother instaure of a like nobleness of con
duct in defence of liberty has occurred in Lou-
ihiana. Ou the 1Mb ult., a case involving the
freedom of a woman and h Tr five children came
up in one of the courts of that State, aud, after
trial, they were all lilrated. The Rrd River
Republican remarks thereupon'-.
" It is only iu a case of this nature that a slave
can be a party to a suit iu our court, and con
siderable interest was f-lt iu it. Though slave
holders, our citizens ar as adverse to holding iu
bondage any one legally entitled to freedom as
would be the veriest Abolitionist in the .North,
and hence tlie most summary justice was ad
ministered in the case.
" It was the first casr tried; and thcevldewv,

"The woman and her rhildrvu were, in KlT,
tl.ives in Kentucky, from which State they were
taken lo the Territory of Indiana, where thev
were indentured to serve twenty years the law
of the territory prohibiting slavery for a longer

'Subsequently they were sold, and their new

sold them as idavrs for lit lo the f ther of the

common dictates of humauity. Tin) physical
c ndition, ineVed, of the negroes of Kentuck v, is
so far advanced that if they were set free they
would lie better able to take care of themselves
in a state of freedom than nuy body ef bonds
men we hav eyer kuown. Aud what is U tU-r
still, is, that Iheir religious instruction has kept
jirtce with their physical improvemeut. J Iu
South ("aruiiaa tlie law forbids the emancipation
of the slave. In Kentucky any man who chooses
may give freedom to Lis bond, and large nam
tiers are daily giving theiu tln ir liberty. In
South t'arolina no free negro U permitted to
enter the State except under a penalty of a f ir
f.dlure of hoi freedom. In Kentucky Bo man
is allowed to add to tlie number of slaves here
by briii'efrrjfferm'frotri oilier Stwte la Simih
Carolina noejiiieii iu or out ef the pulpit, dare
declare, whatever may le his opinion, that the
slave should br taiighl to read tin word of Cod.
In Kentucky able divines and scores of worthr
citizen assert openly, that ia no ether way-
can ne perform our duty truly to ourselves or
the black nua, or to tho comcioa l'ather of
both. And the casual observer, puined though
he may be by the terrible evils which How from
slavery lu its best estate, cannot fail to observe
that there is, ia Kentucky geurrnllv, a determin
ation on the pirt of iiiaMer to extend rather
than rurt.iil the privileges of the slave, aud an
unwavering resolution on the part of the
public everywhere to euforce such humanity.
The first exclusion we draw from this state
of things is, that the puHic mind all over the
South i Is ing grudually draa n toward eman
cipation. So long as the negro wa regarded as
a mere idave a chattel and nothing more,
there could Is- but lit'le hoe for master or man.
In this state if things it was not murder in
South Caroliitv for a white citizen to kill a
negro ; the laV doomed him simply to pay hi
value in dollars, a though he were a bullock
that f"d on grass. Hut society advanced, aud
even iu that stern pro-slavery region, the slave
is now held to be a jiian.aml he who kills him a
murderer. Iu the former stage, emancipation
could not lie dreamed of; it would he an impos
sibility in the very nature of thiug. In the
latter it w ill Is) thought ; for tlm moment the
miud recognisr the negro as aWn, endowed
with like faculties as ourselves! and destined
hereiifter, to lire, like us, forever, that moment
new responsibilities ariw and are felt in the
master's boson, aud in the public mind, until
another advance is made, when freedom hall
be talktd sasadlkeesM'iitial to w hite and black.
And he it ivinemherod that this progress has
been made, while Carolina perpctualist have
been exerting themselves to tighten every pro-
sluvery prejudice, and strengthen every pro
slavery iutenrtl Uow well and forcibly does
this prove 4. eloquent declarations made by
Ilcmtr Clay, in hi speech delivered before the
Colonization Society at Washington, January
20, 127, whea replving to these same peroet-
ualisU:
If they would repress all tendencies towards
liberty and ul.imnto emancipation, they must do
more tluiu put down the benevolent effort of
this society. I hey must go back to the rra of
our liberty aad independence, and inaxxL' tha
cannon which thunders it aunual return. They
must revive t rave trade with all its truia of
attrocitlcs. They must suppress the workings
of British philanthropy, Heekiii to ameliorate
the rotdition of the unfortunate West India
slaves., They mutt arrewt the career of South
American deliverance from thraldom. They
must Uow out the moral lights around usan'd
extinguish that greatest torch of all which
America presents lo a heuiglited world, polntiug
the way lo their rights, their liberty aud their
happiuw. And vvtieu they have achieved all
these purposes, their work will be yet iucoiu
phwe. They must penetrate the human soul and
erai'icats tlie light of reason and the love of lib
erty. Then, aud not till then, when universal
darkness and despnir prevail, can you perpetu
ate slavery and repreaa all sympathies, and all
humane and benevolent etTorta among freemen,
in behalf-syf the unhappy portion of our rs.ee
doomed te bandage.
The second conclusion wc draw-ia thut, Ken

Royalty is at a low ebb in Portugal
It can-
not defend itself, or make head-way agiinst a
rebel force.
But this promise well both for monarch and
people. There 1 now a prtptct of peace, which
could not be, while the Court had power to
hiaintain it position. Out of the weakness of
the King, grow the strength of the people.
At the last accounts, (w suppose all our
reader know that for aome time Portugal has
been rent by internal broil) the Royalit, by ad
vice of the King, had determined to settle all
home difficulties without further bloodshed.
This is well. The Northern insurgent were
triumphant had seized the ouly stuamer be
longing t the Qneen and, without foreign aid,
would have beaten the Royal family of Por
tugal. Hut the ttrmt of this settlement that will
be the difficulty. The Queen w ill grant all she
can, withber notions; the people may demand
byi thasr Foreign power, thiuk is just. Vs
suppose, however, that John Hull, through f!ie
grand seguiour, will arrange matters very much
as he pleases.

Greece is now a sort of battle-field for France

say; England says lo him, pay what thou

puppets.
But France has relieved the King, by agree
ing to pay the interest due England, and thus
this difficulty will be surmounted. Ouly, how
ever, to make way for auother, and another,
aud yet another. The fact U, Greece is most
wretchedly governed. Nor would Otho be able
to stand a moment, were it not that this laud is
considered a sort of out-post of the East. This
makes French or English upremacy so impor
tant in Greece.
Wait, say the Quid-aunce 'til the Paclia and

Start not, n adei '. T.'ii is no trifling matter,

of building houses for the laboring classes ia the

tlie public p-e, ami has. through the hunianH

Parliament. And well may this be so ! Only

Nor art ?r cities exempt from like trouble.
New York, Boston. Philadelphia, Cincinnati.
and all the larger cities, have thousands of la
boring poor who falter and die for want of lriug
well-housed, well-fed, and well-clad. And we
rejoice to say, that good rran ia all tiese cities
are examining the subject With a view of finding
out, aud applying the proper corrective. Mr.
tephen Perkins, of Boston, and Daniel Mui-
turu, of New York, and other kindred spirits,
with a wise benevolence worthy of all praise
and iiiiitataiu, have already begun the work u

The ill of society would quickly disappear if
tboe who have, would only labor wisely aud
generously fwf those who hive not.
Tne fact i clearly established that ao pro
gress ran be made where the physical wants of
man are unattended te or neglected. Let the
home of tiie artiian be squalid, and nnthm raa
siv him or his. No im-ssionary no SaShttth
school no occasional or regular b uevoience
can uplift those who live amid filth, who knoar
not the blessing of pure air or pure wafer, who
breathe ia evermore the taint ef a murky atmos
phere, or wallow amid crime aud impurity of every
sort. I he body must he cleansed ere the sool
can be purified. The physical wants must tie
properly supplied ere a spiritual progress can be
ecared. And so well satisfied are the clergy
and public of I-ondon, and the larger cities of
England, of this f vet, that very little doabt rs 1
main of W. B. Moffat's plan being carri d fully
into effect. That i as follows :
To establish an association, where shares sh.dl
be divided into five pounds, to attain no mere
than 6; per cent, upon the capital. 1 ' of which
"
is te be et aside as a reserved fund for repairs.
and for the benefit of distressed widows and
orphans ; to call for ten shillings only on the
hare, receiving ma!l monthly payments for the
balance, so as to allow industrious workmen to
purchase themselves a freehold. And out of tlie
capital so raise!, to build along the line of the
different railroads, leading to Iondon, villa";''
containing some fire thousand cottages, giving
houar-rouni for a population ef some thirty-five
thousand souls. Connected with these cottag -s
are to be lecture rooms, haliw, libraries. &c.; the
cottages to be of three cl.uwea the first to con
tain six room, with a yearly rental of $l'itl,
tha second, four and five rooms, at $'0, and the
third, four, five and six, at less than a dollar a
week these rent securing free passage to and
from London by rail-way.
This is the spirit that should prevail in large
cities; and it a-u'I prevail for when such indi
viduals as wehave named in England, and in this
country, lead ia this great enterprise, backed as
they are by the laboring elxssvs, it cannot help
prevailing. Why should the poorer artizan be
taxed as they are in our crowded marts T Why-
should hit o ring men in London or New York.
be forced, a they are forced, to pay from fifteen
to twenty per cent, more than any other chws
for house-rent? Why do this at every moral
sacrifice at the sacrifice of lifj Itself? Go
!nto the lanea and allies of crowded cities. See
how their inmate are dwarfed in body and made
callous ia heart, and in every way degraded.
Tlie peat ef the places they lire In. stand out
upon theiu, and covers them over with a leprous
distinctness. And ia it right that this should be,
that man should so degrade his follows anywhere
and more especially, that a cold-blooded ava

But as we have said, a new era ia dawning
