advooato lis was guilty of malting a dis
tinction, whcra it scorns to mo thero is no dif
leranoo. But thore ff u, to my mind, an ev
ident disinclination to moot my questions
lairly, and I refrained thcreforo from urging
more than two or three of a half acoro which
1 had thought of. I wantM them to Justify
thoir denunciations of Whigs and Demo
crats, on tho ground that voting for slave
holders is not a very immoral uct, und thoir
leniency towards tlieir evangelical brethren,
of pew and pulpit, on tho ground that it is a
very Immoral act, I don't believe they wan
ted to hang themselves on either hornof the
dilemma. Hut thus ended my talk with
Liberty Party.
And when I saw there was no prospect of
j i . i 1 1 1 my questions iainy mei aim answer
ed, with a simple yes or iny, I turned to the
audience and addressed them briefly upon
tho support given to slavery liy the reliirion
of the country. I reminded them that cler
pvmen at tho south were selling their own
Church members in some cases their broth
er clergymen and according to their fiith,
Jesus Christ, who is 'formed in every Chris
tian the hope of glory,' and the Holy Ghost,
whose temple tlieir pious slaves are. Then
1 asked them to look at the relation that tho
northern Church held to the southern the
private members of the latter being received
ut the communion table of the former, and
the ministers to tho pulpit constituting vir
tually one K liurcli, and as such, placing texls
of scripture under the institution of slavery
as n solid foundation for it to rest upon.
Such a religion I spoke of as being the worst
m its influence ol any thing on earth.
But I will close this already too lengthy
article, with the additional questions which
1 intended to propose to the Convention.
They are the following: Is any man fit to
be a minister of the gospel who votes for a
siavenoiuer! i thought it would be very
hard for them to say that minister with whom
they exchange pulpits and some of whom
were present were mil fit Iu preact; but as
they had denounced them as being wicked
as politicians. I was anxious to know what
they would say of them as evangelical cler
gymen, consistency, 1 tliouglit, required
them to say they were ministers of .Sat in,
rather than of Cod. But I give the other
questions. W hat slinll we do if we aie Dem
ocrats, or if we aro VVIiigs? Shall we not
slay in our party and try to reform it? or
must we come out from it.' And what shall
wo do if we are Methodists or Baptists or
Calvinists! or members of any other pro
slavery 6ect stay in or come out ! Of course,
1 knew they would say of the political par
ties 'Come out of them; iloe from them as
Lot did out of Sodom; and that they would
say of the religious parties, 'Stay in them;
the Church is a divine institution, and you j
must purify it' but I wanted the whole au
dience to see the inconsistency of their posi
tion. And in conclusion, I desired to ask
them what action the passing of their reso
lutions would result in. Hev. Mr. Oreutt
was there as tho representative, as he said,
of nineteen twentieths of the Church and
a very pro-slavery body they were rendu
tsively proved to be. And resolutions were
passed declaring they were very 'inconsist
ent.' But I intended to ask the. clergymen
living in this icvioii, u thu representatives
of the one twentieth, if they should continue
to exchange with their brother Oreutt? and
continue to receive the 'lay' members of tho
Church, who sympathize wilh Sir. O. to
their communion tallies! Of any but 'evan
gelical clergymen, l should not have asked
such questions. Liberalise do not excom
municato and give over to 'the bulli'tings of
Satan,' every man tinctured with 'heresy,'
nnd they cannot, therefore, upon their princi
ples, be called upon to pursue such a course
towards a pro-slavery man. But those, who
would excommunicate for sawing wood on
tho sabbath, or for dancing, or for being a
Unitarian, Unirersalist, or a ( 'arrisonian,
should also, it seems to me, excommunicate
for giving sanction to the tratlic in human
beings. But they will probably do no such
thing. They will continue vehemently to
denounce Whigs and Democrats as of the
tleril, Hnd also continue in very intimate
Christian and ministerial fellowship with
euch of them as are of their sects in religion.
Liberty Party comes forward with great
pretensions to godliness, but if it could be
come a powerful party, 1 fear it would be a
.party the most to bo dreaded for its tyranni
cal influence of any that exists. It might
abolish chattel slavery, and doubtless would
and abolish it with sword in hand, if it
could not otherwise. But under its reign
all sects of supposed heretics, and non-resis
tants especially, would be Jikely to tare hard
they certainly would if some of its pres
ent clerical leaders, or similar ones, had the
direction of it. An exclusive religious par
ty in politics, whose reliance is the sword,
is a dangerous foe to humanity. Off of the
Anti-slavery platform, I woald oppose Lib
erty Party, chiefly on this ground. Away
wilh all religion that hung and hutehin
mankind. When it is in authority it will
hang and butcher them for nun-confurmili to
.a creed. But more on this point at some
other-time. W. 11.

citizens of Cincinnati held on the 25th. Aug. LEXINGTON, Ky. Sept. 4, 1845.
Gentlemen: I have just received your let
ter of the 'JTth ult. enclosing the proceedings
of the citizens of ( 'ineinnati, and their reso
lutions in public meeting.
Their words of kindness nnd generous np-
fireciation nnd noble and dignified a ,wal,
lave moved mo more than all the studied
cruelties nod wrongs of my enemies, though
I was unneived by disease, and threatened
for long days and nights, wilh a horrible
1 thank you that you have not allowed the
calumnious manifesto of the revolutionists of
the lH;h of August, to weaken your confi
dence in my loyalty to the constitution and
laws. I thank you that you have seen noth
ing in the past to cause you to lr;o confidence
in the future, that my 'measures and means'
will be sale, practicable, and peaceable. I
thank you that yon deem my work 'high and
holy,' and for the reverent and soul-sustaining
invocation of Divine protection on me
and it.
You, gentlemen, have taken mo on trust.
The time for my defence will conio with my
re-established health, when, I venture to say,
your sentence will not bo revoked, by 'Ken
tucky and the world.
I shall allude, now to only one charge go
ing the rounds of the papers that there was
compromise between me and the rebels of
the 18th, nnd that I iigreed to discontinue the
publication of the True American, provided
they would spare the press. It is unneces
sary for me to say to you, w ho have seen my
tter addressed to the mooting-, as well as
my previous handbills addressed to the peo
ple, that this story is c.tluint i u;s, and moral
ly impossible. It is enough that the com
mittee of sixty have authorized tho Lexing
ton Observer and Reporter to state that no
such proposition came from me or my friends.
This attempt, therefore, on the part of those
who failed to destroy me, is of a piece with
this whole outrage of cruelty and wrong, as 1
shall be able to show, a3 soon as my health
will allow.
1 hope I shall also be able to show that I
am neither a "madman;" nor a "fanatic."
Tliey who sent back from Thermopylae
t'.ic subliuie message "Co tell it at Laccde
mon that we died here in obedience to her
laws" the Homun who returned to captivi
ty and to death that his country might be sa
ved Sydney, Hampden, Russell, Knitnet,
who uttered the mighty instincts of a great
soul, "the man dies, hut his memory lives,
Adams, who exclaimed, "Survive or per
idi, I am for the declaration," Henry; who
cried, "Give me liberty, or c've me death,"
were nil. in the eyes ol thoso men, 'mad
men' nnd 'fanatics.'
It was necessary that some one should
bear the standard of liberty into the enemies'
camp, and by so doing, whether he stood or
toll, arouse tins great nation from the lethar
gy and death which have come over the
spirit of a once free people. It has been the
policy of wise statesmen in all ages, to
clothe the humblest citizen with the concen
trated power and inviolability of the whole
empire. It was enough for ono amidst the
wildest barbarians to 'say "I am a Human
citizen," and liewassil'e. No country in
Kurope is so careful 0f individual and na
tional glory as France, the first nation ol
liiirope, and l'nglund, but a few years ago
was reaily to peril her thirty million of lives
on the rescue of a single subject. It cannot
therefore be less than madness in the Ameri
can people if th.-y expect to live long as a
nation, and not to fall an easy saeriiieo to
foreign aggression, or internal anarchy and
despotism, to look coolly on, when even the
humblest ol those contending (or coustitu
tional liberty and national honor are over
borne and trampled down in the battle.
.Surely that nation cannot live long, l,ir less
be free, that sees, time after time, whatever
ol spirit and manly independence may any
where exhibit itself, crushed, and utterly e.v
1 thank you then, and the people of Cin
cinnati, my fellow-citizens, men gathered
under the same national constitution to which
I owe allegiance, and which owes me pro
tection, brothers of the saino blood inherit
ing the same proud recollections of the past,
and looking in the future to the same insepa
ruble destiny, that you have not cowered be
fore the slave-power; but that you have stood
by tho friendless, tho powerless, the fallen,
and dared to speak out for constitutional re
publicanism and eternal justice, which havo
been violated in my person. Above all am
1 deeply affected by the fact, that you assem
bled in mass meeting, without distinction of
party; and as both parties hero were lost in
overwhelming subservience; to slavery, so
you of the freo states begin to unite in the
defence of your own rights, and in the cause
of natural liberty.
f the Whigs, and Democrats, and Liber
ty men, shall becomo really what they as.
sniiic, then is half my work accomplished,
and the republic safe for though my state
should sink into irrecoverable despotism,
there will bo left somewhere on this wide
continent, a homo for the exile and oppressed.
With regard to the Press, I would briefly
remark that my banner, "God and Liberty,"
will never bo struck.
Though overpowered by numbers, I have
tho same unconquerable will and defiant
spirit as though tho day had not gone against
mo. It is for those who fight for tho wrong,
to despair in defeat.
I shall not din through mortification, as
my enemies would have it. I trust I hliall
yet live to see thogo who, on the 181b of
August, 1815, rose in arms, overpowered the
civil authorities and overthrew the constitu
tional liberties of the state, nnd established
on its ruins an irresponsible despotism, hurl
ed from tlieir usurped places of fancied se
curity, and Kentucky made free,
II',"however, this bo a vain hope still, I
will not repine, for 1 should feci prouder to
have fallen with her hon.'T, than to have in
gloriously triumphed with my enemies over
the grave of thn liberties of my country.
With gratitude and admiration. I am

The New York Herald, as might natural
ly be expected, from the character of the pa
per, is in an ecsticy of joy at the misfortune
of poor Cough, and makes it the occasion for
two columns of vituperation of temperance
and temperance men. Ono or two other pa
pers in New York have indulged in similar
remarks, but all the respectable papers havo
treated the matter in a very candid and lib
eral spirit. For ourself we have formed no
definite opinion as to the means by which
(inugh camo to the deplorable condition in
which he was found. We await the result
of further investigations. Whatever they
may have been, the casi furnishes new ar
eu neiits ill favor of the temper nice cause,
and, if it shall bo p,ovod that Cough was
in aught to blame, be is, in our view, a
thousand times more to be pitied than blam
ed. Tho Xew York Tribune of yesterday says:
The affair still remains as much in the dark
as ever, and nil that we do know in reality
is that Mr. Cough was found in the condi
tion and at the place stated by us on Satur
day morning, and that he still remains in a
deplorable slate doubtless from the effects
of liquor or opium, or probably both. The
history of tin? soda-water meeting with an
old shop mate going into Thompson &
Wcllor's and then into a soda shop round
the corner down Warrau or .Murray-st. (there
being no such thing as a soda-shop in cither
of them any where in the. vicinity of Broad
way) &e. &e.. is to s.iy the least very un
satisfactory. o say nothing of tiie week
in the house in Walker-.-?!., the expenditure
of about ijl."() of his money, and the other
inconsistencies of the story in the ".National
Police Ca.etie hxtra, of .Saturday. They
refute each oilier. Perhaps when .Mr. Cough
completely recovers his senses the events of
that, week may come back to Ins memory as
they in reality occurred. At present our
duty is charity, our privilege pity. Wheth
er Air. Cough was seduced by an enemy to
1 1 iiiperanee and to one. ol its most success
fill advocates, or whether ho fell from the
unonntrnllablo stressji'Lh of hi own rotorninp;
appetite, he is almost equally entitled to our
deepest sympathy and commiseration; nor is
the sacred, the glorious cause of Temperance
implicated in his fate or responsible for his
back-slidings more than is Religion for the
occasional tervigersatious of its ministers.
We have already announced the discovery
and return of this gentleman ta his friends
The following account, says the Sew York
Cuuiinerciul Advertiser, ''Was drawn up lor
publication liy Mr. Ilulbiirt, of Brooklyn, to
whose housu Mr. Cough was taken ai soon as
found. "
Mr Goucti Koukd. Yesterday, about 12
o'clock, oilicer U P. Mays discovered Mr.
Gouh at a heuso in Wuiuer street, where he
had been sinco Friday uiht last. Jiis own ac
count ol hiniscll it that, m'lcr leaving tho Crotou
Hotel, lie met with uu old shopn.atc, v I'll w bom
ho drank, as ho supposed, a rhiKt of soda water,
and from that linio till ho witt found ho has but
littte knowledge of what transpired.
Ho is now with bis Iriends, and under the
care of a physician, and hopes aro enlei t.cinod of
bis speedy recovciy.
Mr. Cough, as bus been previously stated, lift
the Crotou tlolel, and went to Iho store of Sax
ton and Miiea, where be transacted somo busi
ncss and leit, passing Coleman's he slopped to
look ut some ptiuls m tho window, wnen be
was uc 'oted oy an old acquaintance and shop
mate (a bookbinder who asked w hat he was do
ing now.
" 1 am lecturing on temperance," replied Mr.
" Is not that rather poor work," replied bis
" Why, no I think it a good work," answer
ed the lecturer.
" Well," said the other. "I suppose you havo
got to ba so pious now thut you would not
drink a g'asg of soda wat?r.
' O, no! 1 do not refuse to drink soda water:
and here is a fountain; suppose we go in and
have a g'lifs "
They wero at this time, passing Thompson
& Wellur's, in Oroadway; hot, stopping at the
duor, they saw a number of persons wait
ing lound tho fouiituin, when Mr. G'i acquaint
ance raid " Come with me, I can take yon
where you can yet a better glass of soda than
you can get here;" und, so saying, led him
round a curnerto a smill shop, where be called
for foda something parsing lelwi en the keener
of the place and the person into w hose company
Mr. G- had fallen. Tho soda water being prepar
ed, bo drank it, this is the lusl that Mr. G. iu
incml crs till this inurninj;, be recollects to have
heard il mid Iliat there was a reward oliered fur
Mr. (ioueli, the temperance fciiior.
Mr. Cough's friends make no charges, as yol;
they are rejoiced at having their Ineud, and the
friend of leinpeiance lestured to llienl, and they
thank i leaven that he has been pieservid. Hut
vhal course will the public authorities pursue:
Will not every person, who lias been cngoyed in
tins fiendish transaction, be called to account.'
We sincerely hope so. Some slforg narcotic
dru, probably opium, was undoubtedly admin
istered to Mr. Goiigh in no small ipiuotiiy. His
watch, ring, gold pencil, and thuio, ucre safe,
nod ho bad alonl s'i) in money about liim.
II will be recollected that lie had $2JU when ho

more light upon the wholo '. ruimcliuo. At

snond. Fermentition results in the volatil
ization of gaseous, nnd the subsidence of
gross particles, while that wln'tit is valuable
becomes embodied. It may be essential to
progress that conflicting elements be brought
in contact. Would the religion embraced hy
the Ihnperort 'oust mtine have Included a ma
jority of his subjects in three hundred years
after its promulgation, bad It not been oppo
sed? Had its hundreds of bishops, with tlieir
adherents, entertained precisely the sunn
views, there would have been no Nieeno
council. Hut for ecclesiastical interferences
with the ecclesiastic Luther protestantism
would have made comparatively little pro
gress. The same independence on the one
hand, ami opposition on the other will account
for the increase of all the popular sects.
It is not less true of the relorms of our day.
The rapid advances in temperance and ab
olition, could not have been made, had not
opposition excited sympathy for the perseeu
ted advocates of thes-; reforms, which in due
time became interest in the causes themselves,
for their own merits. Aroused by the mal
treatment of disinterested reformi rs, bye stm
ders imperceptibly commenced a work of in
vestigation in which, but for previous agita
tion, they Would not have been eng.ignd.
Whether the stimulus nf conflict be an essen
tial element of progression will not now be
discussed, though it may be suggested that
life of all kinds is the result of a strife be
tween antagonistic forces.
In 1S.T3 immedi iti isiii, in abolition, erec
ted for itself a platform. Croat and good
hearts rallied to it. They were, or thought
they were of one mind. They had a skilful,
powerful, malignant enemy without. Aware
that it. would require unremitting vigilance,
and their united energies to contend with such
a foe, they had neither leisure nor inclination
to compare their views in detail. 'Excelsior'
in thn germ, no less th in in the hud or the
blossom, is indispensilile. In their defence of
their principles they moved not only onward,
but upward; new nnd higher views were pre
sented and at each consecutive advance their
opponents partly conceding tho rightfulness
of the previous position fought main!)' against
the present oil". Soon, comparatively, little
was urged against am ilgaimtion, turning
loose (cc, but now fields had to be won.
I he soldiers of the enemy had lost somewhat
of their ferocity, besides many had deserted
and wero doing battle in the other ranks.
These and other promising signs, satisfied
somo organizations and temperaments, nnd
when their brothers more sanguine and ar
dent, were pressing on with renewed and in
creasing vigor, the former were prone to think
them ultra; they were wont to say "this is
going too 1 ir, or too fast, or perchance, it is
extraneous. I' iradoxiol as it may appear,
it is quite possible, now that the opposition
from without was less violent and less viru
lent, that the excitement could not have been
kept up to the healthfully efficient point
w ithout agitation within. Neither materials
nor agents wero wanting. Whether pcrmn
was to he understood in the civil or social
signification, was deemed a worthy question
to begin with, and Garrison and 1 appall en
tered the beligerancy. Woman's rights was
tho ostensible schismatic question, and se
cession followed its discussion. Old and
new organization threw crackers and rockets
into each others camp; both Rent bombs and
balls into the pro-slavery fortress. Once the
enslaver Imped, and the emancipator, feared
they would waste their strength in domestic
collision. The hope is past, and the fear is
no longer painful, for it is seen that although
they cannot unite harmoniously as they were
wont in hy-gono days, yet each in his own
right and after bis own manner, sustains an
unceasing destructive fire on the enemy.
At the present time abolition has at least
four costumes; the constitutional gradualism
of C. M. Clay; the constitutional ininiediate
ism of IS. Daily jr.; the organized "no union
with slaveholders" of W. L. Garrison, and
the unorganized no union with state, church,
or any other available instrumentality for the
perpetuation ol slavery ol'N, 1. lingers. The
first would engage in deadly strife before tho
last emergency; the second, reluctantly even
then; tho third would repudiate physical force
under any eonceiveablo circumstances, and
the lust consents not to any incumbrance or
impediment being cast in the way ol the free-
est thought and speech, bo discards not only
physical lurce hut mental restraint in all d
gioos. jvacii m these entertains his own
views, of necessity, and U Us bis own story
confidently) the integrity of each being above
suspicion, lo all this there can be no ohiee
lion until it is shown that opinion is control

ther of the foregoing classes deem it impor
tant that they should explain, and at the least
recommend, the course ol actum which they
adopt. This they consider a duty, a duty
they must promptly and came- liy uerform.
They write and speak freely, each in favor
ol ins own theory, aim riispan gngly of the
theories ot the other. 1 bus lar a lamt can
not bo imputed. Ono plan of o, orations is
nearer perlection than the others; thu listen

ccd in juxtiposition. This cannot b-reali
zed unless the advocates respectively ant

to bring them on an equality. If Writers and

the nipst of those to whom we have sentrfiavu"
taken no notice of our reipiest. We know.
not whrlher the ncgh.-ct wecxpeijtHee is ow

If the former, wo would urge them to.
be morn direful, for situated as we are, iu aivi
inland tan uf what was recently the far;
west, it is important to us that we receive
our exchanges regularly, and as early as pos
sible; if it i owing to churlishness, if they,
treat out rtvptost wilh silent contempt in or
der to show how much they despise the prin
ciples of tho Bugle, we pity them, and hope
tlieir feelings will speedily undergo a change.
We shall this week make another attempt lo.
ascertain who will exchange with us, and who,
will nut. To all from whom we have not re-.
L-cived their paper regularly, or at all, we.
shall send a marked copy of, this arti-.
cle, and repeat tho roquost, that if they in
tend exchanging with its, they will ascertain
whether our name is on thoir list, and that if
they object the)' will at least favor us with
one No, and write "Decline" upon it, so that
wo may know who refuses.
Our exchange papers mention the decease
of Judge Story, who expired at Cambridge
Mass., on tho l!)th inst. aged C(i years. Hu,
was Professor of Law in Harvard Uiiivcrsj-i
ty at the timo of his death, and had for more
than thirty years occupied a seat upon, thev
Bench of the Supreme Court of tho United
States discharging the duties of that oflijco
to general satisfaction. We have u,ot yet
heard any surmises as to who wiU occupy
the station thus made vacant, but doult not
that long befure tho breath had left his, body,
political ciiuei had laid their plans fop tho
elevation of their respective favorites to the
Judicial Bench. Of one thing we may spoak
with certainty; tho favored nominee will ei
ther ho a southern man, or a northern, man
with southern principles.
This victim of mob law is now in Cincin
nati. Ho is gradually regaining bis health
and strength: go says the Cincinnati Hrrald.
