EXTRACTS FROM A SPEECH OF
WM. LLOYD GARRISON.
After a few words expressing his happi
new in meeting the abolitionists of Eastern
Pennsylvania, bia brethren as the children of
common lather, and his brethren also as en
gaged in a common cause and impelled by
common desires for the triumph of truth, and
Tight, and for the slave's deliverance, the
speaker went on to remark upon the solemni
ity and importance of the question before
them. Weshoild not act rashly, he said,there
should be nothing impulsive in our move
ments. Not that we should wait to know
what affect our course may have on ourselves
our ease or prosperity or good name. Ich
abod, will be the motto of our banner, in the
Jay when such considerations can make us
hesitate about advancing in the path of duty,
Wo should ask only what is right! not what
is politic) or popular! We are not to fol
low the multitude to do evil
: I see a large portion of those before me,
who ought la be disunionists; who, though
thsu nghls are as dear and as precious a
ours, aw treated as aon-cntiiies by your gov
ernment, and by your political parties.
Whigs aad Demecrats profess with equal
seal to go fat equal- political rights, but both
unite in depriving Ball the rapeol their rights,
And Liberty party differs not in the least
from the other parties, as to its practical con
tempt of women. 1 hat government has no
just authority but what it derives from the
consent of the governed, is a principle laid
down, not by reckless fanatics, but by the
greatest statesmen of the country. It is the
Nation's avowed doctrine, yet in defiance
the government claims and exercises authori
ty over those whose consent has never been
given or asked. How can christians or pa
triots support such a government!
. Who are most likely to be blinded in re
gard to this question! and who are most
likely to be impartial! For the union arc
those who are willing to remain in political
association with the prolligate and tlia un
principled, that they may obtain political
power. Ihey want the power, they say
which cannot else be obtained, but they want
It to make a good use ol it. lie it so, yet
fear the man who wants power. For what
does he want it! To make me do what hi
thinks is right, not what my own conscience
requires or me. Ihey who defjnd the ('on
stiution are on the side of ho.ior and einol
ument, and men love these. Their course
puts them in the way to their own prefer-
ment, ours cuts us on iroin all chance ot pre
ferment, with its emoluments and honors,
other things being equal thon, t'.iey are like
ly to be bfinded rather than we.
It has been said or intimated, that we have
no right to introduce the Non-resistant ques
tion here. Uut they who say this, have in
troduced it; we have not. ine Non-Rcsist-
ance quostion is not involved in that which
we are now discussing. It is not whether
we shall go for no government, but whether
we shall support this government. We stand
in regard to this matter, where the Coven,
anters do, and they are far enough from be
ing iNon-ltesistants,
' If any are here who are not abolitionists,
if any who are abolitionists only when it
popular to be such, if any who are abolitionists
only so far as they can thereby promote
their own interests, or any who instead
taxing truth lor their guide, follow any man
as an oracle; to them I make no appeal;
speak only to thoau who mem to follow
truth at whatever cost, for there is need now
ef a firm trust in God, and resolute purpose
to abide by the right. Times m-iro trying
thin our tubers saw, await us, and we are
fa is through a in on? severe ordeal of our faith
n God and trust in man, than any to which
they were called. Hence none will rally
with us around this banner but those who
pre ready to Ijcaj it onward through persecu
tion and reproach, for if the cause is to
'fcj iMn Vt umaiu.
Ail abolitionists are agrcud as ti the jwi'n-
tipUt of abolitionism; tho right of all men
to free, tbJ sinfulness of slaveho'ding,
duty of linm-di ita e:mnciiintion; but in
Application of these principles wo are not
agreed, There is a wide and honest differ-
nee ef opinion; and this should not excite
surprise, for thu minds of men am n."
in thrir growth. Though all should start
yet some must go forward. There
so exwjfcioo for impaling to wh e hr wntng
motives for such differences. The truo man
does not wince at the dissent or the rebukes
of hi associate, but relies on his Win? in
the right, and if anju-uly accused dors not
cry out Impatiently and lly Into a passion.
. All concede that it is not enough to Uc
ounce the system of slavery as sinful. The
slaveholders themselves can do that. They
admit it is wrong and a curse, but alt that is
Dot enough to abolish it. War is every
where admitted to be a great evil, but still
the work of slaughter ffoes on, and men train
themselves to engage in it. But to make
our principles of any avail, we must bold
them practically, and not in the absttacl
merely. It is a serious question, who are

their
professions on trust. If the State claims to
be republican, we win explain it by thought
of republican principles, and if its practice is
at war with its profession, we will brand it
as despotic. If the church claims to be an
ti-slavery, we will try it by the law of Uod,
and if it cannot abide that, we will treat it as
anti-christian and diabolical.
We are connected with various associa-
tions, political and religious, and it is hard
to give tbein up. Here comes a strong temp
tation to do wrong lor the sike of remaining
in them; to go with the multitude to do evil,
rather than stind alona or with the despised
few for tho right, and forego the connections
which have been so dear to us. Hut we
must resist all such temptation if we would
be faithful to the cause of the slave, and suc
cessful in laboring tor his deliverance.
1 stand here to affirm that in saying, that
consistency with our principle requires us to
withdraw trom the pro-sl, ivory organizations
ol the country, not exuoptui its pro-slavery
government, i onng in no prescriptive uoc
trine, nor one which is invidious to any one
on the anti-slavery plalfor n. I hold to the
largest liberty on that platlorm, tor all who
believe in tho right of the slave to be free
immediately. They iniy differ as to the
mode of action, and each has a right to un
dertake his own chosen method. Somo be
lieve in the use of free produce, as an im
portant means of aiding the cause, and regard
abstinence f.om the products of slave labor,
as an anti-slavery duty. Ihey have a right
to express taat opinion, and to do it in no
proscription ot those who do not adopt it.
. So of. our own course .in relation to politl
cal parties. Shall the Whig or the Demo
cratic abolitionist say that we are prescrip
tive, because we dculurc it to be inconsistent
with anti-s.avery principles to act with those
parties w.ule they remain in a pro-slavery
position, or to support t icir pro-sluvory can
didatesl Nay; he interferes willi my rights
is an abiliiioui.tt, if hn prevents me from
speaking sach a sentiment; and if he runs off
because 1 speak It, he shows that he cannot
remain where the truth is spoknn. Uut it is
called proscription, to say that the Constitu
ion is a bloody compact; a league with op,
rcssion, which we ought not to support or
sanction by our oaths or votes. We must
not call a'lolitionuts inconsistent when they
swear to support such a pro-slavery Consti
tution. 1 do not assent to this doctrine 1
thank any man whu faithfully rebukes my
inconsistency. 1 he life ol our cause is in
our willingness to hear all, in the spirit of
manly honesty.
We have otien adopted resolutions that it
is not consistent for abolitionists to beloUg to
the Whig and Democratic parties, on ac
count of their pro-slavery character; and now
some of the same persons who have advoca
ted these resolutions, condemn us for saying
it is inconsistent for them to belong to a pro
slavery confederacy, and uomiso support to
a pro-slavery Constitution. They accuse us
of doing the same thing in principle, which
New organization did in 1BJU and in 10, when
it sought to force upon the Anti-slavery soci
ety, the doctrine ol the rightfulness of hu
man governments and the duty of voting to
create and uphold them; matters on which
it was not our province to decide either war.
uut the charge is unjust, for we do not teach
the duty of not voting, or that human gov
ernment is wrong and ought not to be sup
ported; we only say that abolitionists cannot
consistently vote lor, create, or support
prvtlavery government. This is a purely
Anti-slavery doctrine,

LIBERTY PARTY IN CONNECTICUT.

the
to
Mr. Editor: I wish to address a few
thoughts to the Abolitionists, and people in
Windham county, through the colmns
your parer with reference to the Liberty Par
ly Association, recently held in Daiilclson-
villc, anil my attendances as an anti-slavery
man. Tun "Christian Freeman" inciden
tally came into my hands, and I found an
invitation to "evury anti-slavery man and
woman who can attend, to appuir at a Lib
erty Association of Windham county, armod
an I equipped with courage and zeal com,
mensural;) with the work before th?m."
ad- havo bocnre ivjly engignd, as an enemy
American ri.ivcry, in iiie neiu in open oppo-
sition to it for the List seven or eight years.
to ( lave warn-J against slavery in season and
the out of seas n it all times in all places
the without c.iasing. This I need not tell
all 1 it is well known; my life has been a '"living
epistle. against slavery, known and read
alike
to
gether, is
a! I men."
When I engaged In tho anti-slavery
to.prise, it was with a princiult nf rii'A',
against an enormously wleked system
w-nnj nd utrac I enured the floM
a
I
to
of:
of
en.
of
as
an uncompromising enemy to slavery, for the ,
eainpaign, be it long or short. 1 little un
dorstood at the time the strength of the foe
with winch I had made war how many
strong holds fortifications and) coverts, it
had; how it had endeared itself and obtained
a s roeg fmthoM.in every class of society.
CUihing mys :ll with the panoply ol truth
I weui turiit with the Ithnreat spenrand com
menced an attack. I followed the enemy
into the whig and democratic jinnies, and
heard its friends crying "this is not tlvc
greatest devil" ''wo are choosing tlie least
of evils." . I made no compromise I fol
lowed on and the . enemy fled into the
Church, Theological ohoolsand Ecclestisti-
cal bodies which shut their doors upon me
saying "touch not the - Lord s annointed;
you are going to excite and divide the
church, and destroy the ministry." I made
no compromise. I followed the enemy on
into the very citadel of the government in
to their very name work and tound its vi
til and animating spirit slavery- 1 applied
my principle ol right. 1 have made no com
promise no union with slavery and I hear
God saying to all, "your covenant with
death and agreement with hell shall be dis
annulled." . :' .
1 was educated nn orthodox congrcgation-
alist and to believe that every principle of
right was given to us as a rule ol conduct;
and that it is the duty of all to apply these
principles to every thing and to every body,
and wli i:evcr would not stand the test, to
regard it as wrong and unworthy of counte
nance. . 1 hue 1 have rigidly, conscientious
ly, and unfalteringly applied my anti-slavery
principles to the people, the parties, the
church, clorgy, theological and religious in
stitutions, and to the government, and 1
found their "power on the side of the op
pressorwhile the poor slave had no com
forter." I am a eomeouter from the whig
and demooratio parties, because they are
slaveholding. I must bo without partiality
and hypocrisy. I am a comeoutcr from the
church, because as James G. Birnc.y says,
it is "ihe bulwark of American Slavery
and God says "come o t of her, that ye par
take not of her sins and receive not of her
plagues." I come out from the clorgy, be
cause they baptise and sanctify slavery, and
as Gcrrit .Smith says, as a body constitute
the most corrupt and abandoned set of men
in the land. 1 come ont from- the govern'
ment, becauso it has entered into a slave-
liuldiiiT. slave-tradiiiir. nbvo-'v. -Hiiia com.
pact a covenant with deatirond' an agree
ment Willi hell and no ono can be other
than a coinooutcr from it, who is an aboli
liouist. And now I must not shrink from
applying my principles to tho so termed
Liberty Party the members of which pro
fess to be opposed to Slavery. I find it very
ready to admit my principle, of right and ap
ply it to tun whig ii nd democratic parties,
and unite with me in crying come out oe
ye separate from them to recognize no man
as anti-slavery, w.n continue in connex
ion and labor with them as did Porter,
Ainsworth. also Dooth. Hammond at the
Liberty Party meeliiiir and here we part,
1 ask them to make the like impartial appli'
cation of their principles to the American
Lhurch 'VAc Uulwart nf iluvery" which
sanctifies the system; and they cry hands
oil yuu with to "abolish the church ''-you
hnlc the church" "your object is to dulroy
the church under the garb of anti-slavery.
Such charges were used by Porter, llooth
and the clergy present. Thus tho church
sanctities and defends slavery; and tho Lib
erty Parly is in full league with the church
crying against come-out ism; defending the
church, wiiigs and democrats, by it to get
their votes to got ollice and power.
i he politics of.tlie Liberty party can h
no better than their religion, and i:r,H
slave huldiiig. lis leaders carefully avoid
the church question in its relation to slave
rythey will talk about every other obsUv
clo but that of the church as Porter and his
fellow laborers did at Daniclsonviilc and
others introduce thu church, they defend her
daub her over call her anti-slavery
1'orter and Ainsworth did and oiler you
rebuke as llooth and Porter and others did
me for introducing the subject.
The church is in league with slavery, and
Liberty party in league with the church
and the latter more criminal than the tonne
because of its light and professions, li
under the necessity of being so to got votes.
Porter "let the cat out of the bag" to the
chagrin of Liberty party leaders. He un
dertook in common with other leading Lib
erty party spirits to put a padlock upon
lips but their presiding oilicer, and a ma
jority of tho meeting, were not so lost to anti-slavery
principles, to allow it they have
unwittingly been cajoled into the parly, and
without fairly seeing their position, united
with t'.ie party to rote slavery down. The
leading spirits must keep them in, and to
so ku v they must keep dark, Mr. Porter,
1 should havo said Hev. James Porter, pre
siding Elder in the Meth. Epis. Church
church rotten with slavery from centre
circuinlerence) author ol a work against
coiuivoutisui emphatically enjoined
the Liberty party to countenance no free discussion
meetings. He would not engage
in thorn neither would the clergy
church; anJ they had stood aloof from
cause in consequence of them; they would
not attend, to be abused, traduced, rebuked;
a id ha also emphatically said "depend upon
a.ic tun, if you open your doom to free dis
cussion, you will make but a very few eon
perts," Cnr hoar! hear! Yes freo discus

Mr. Birney says he' is prepared to dor it in

closed, and the meetinr had to bo held in a

that free discson meetings would not

linn, what he pleased to give mem. i.ioer-
iv nartv is in an awkward dilemma also
while it admits slavery to be an immorality
or sin to be abandoned immediately and
vet in order to abolish this immediately, it
swears to support it. Or to get rid ot this
charge, dishonestly claim the right of pri
vate interpretation, or if mental reserviitiun,
or doing evil that good may come l. e.

you will have to quit the nation.
There are m any men in the Liberty party,
sincere friends of the slave, who will not re
main in the p'rty long, after they set their
position in that party in full fellowship with
tho oppressor. Many of .my choice friends
are in that party many of iliem members of
the American Anli-SI ivery society. I know
their zeal and devotion to the cause they
have not studied their relation and support
to slavery in the church and Rtate through
this party ns they ought. They wish to
have freo discussion. No, say the Liberty
nartv leaders, it is dangerous, and henceforth
Liberty party meetings are to be closed
against free discussion in Windham county,
nre thev! Porter says they are in Massa
chusetts, and he said the truth the church
and tho clergy would not attend them other
wise. Liberty party meetings in N. York,
and throughout the country, are opposed
free discussion except the diseussion ne an
on their side.
Will thr nhnlitinnists of Windham eoun

I speak advisedly, 1 speak soberly, that
I were to act on me principle i "'"; -

whig or democratic party before ihe Liberty
party. Such men as John Q. Adams, are
to bo honored for their consistency, to say
