It nothing but nioatuurUro, Th.it l good
leameriaor own p rod oca revival at any
tine. Mr. Dtfto bar called upon hit breth
ten not to flatter themaolvca witii the belief
that, the persona .holding thes aentimente
wero not numerous, for eai.l he, the are
much more numerous thin you imagine r.nd
their seal and pcrseverauco falter at no ob
" staclc." In May "Inst there wag an Infidel
convention held in the city of New York
according to public notice previously circu
lated throughout the country, of which John
A. Collins of the Skeneatles Community
was an active member. lie holds to the
doctrine of the abrogation of the sacred
marriage relation, the right to private prop
erty and all human government. Another
leading member of that convention, and one
who exerted a controlling influence over its
deliberations was that celebrated and notori
ous arch infidel, Robert Owen. His princi
ples are notorious. He too discards private
property, does away with tho marriago re
lation, and human government. At that
convention measures were set on foot to as
certain how many infidels there are in these
United States. The foundation of infidel
societies in every neighborhood where infi
dels could be found, was earnestly recon
mended and is now being carried into opera
tion, Bo that in your midst, perhaps, means
arc in progress for the dissemination of their
infidel doctrines. And as was before re
marked they do not come out like men and
tell you there is no God, for if you look at
that stand, at the candle, at that book, at the
pulpit, you ace at once thero was a design
ing intelligence engaged in their creation;
and if you look ,out on the earth, on the
Heavens, on man, you are told in thunder
tones there is a God. The fool, and the
fool only, has said there is no God. But
these reformers are too cunning to say that.
This same John A. Collins (.Mr. Bates
again remarked that he liked to give names
and places for he was prepared to prove any
position he assumed) in a convention of
working men held in Boston some time last
year said, that he did not go before the
peoplo with the avowed purpose of preach
ing infidelity, but ho talked about Anti-sla-rery,
Temperance, Peace, Phrenology, Mes
merism, anything at all by which ho could
get the car of the people, but he never failed
to throw in somo of the doctrines of infidel
ity. And these are the means adopted by
these men. William Lloyd Garrison, .John
A. Collins, Robert Owen and tho whole of
those engaged in propagating .what they are
pleased to term reform movements have one
object, and but onn in view, -the destruc
tion of our holy religion. This man Garri
son published a letter not long since in his
Liberator which ho had received from a man
in Liverpool, .heralding the contemplated
.visit of that notorious man, Robert Owen,
to this country, which (though not intended
for the public eye) Garrison thought too
good to be lost. This letter stated that Rob
ert Owen would visit this country, and went
at length into a detjil of the benefits the
world had derived and would derivo from
his efforts, and bespoke for him a hearty
welcome. It also cuggested ,th:it John A:
Collios. should be made the John the Baptist
to precede him in America as the writer had
done in Ensland, and prepare the way for
.the milleniuin bis principles arc about to
'introduce.
Here then you have the men and their
principles. Robert Owen, Wm. Lloyd Gar
rison, John A. Collins and their compeers,
And their doctrines those of tho French rev
olution which drenched Europe in blood and
filled her with crime, together with the abro
gation of the marriage lcbticn, the right to
private property and all human government.
And some of these men affect to think a
change is to come over the face of things io
great as to make this earth a paradise, to
drive out sin and misery; but by exactly
what means they hope to effect it, is not ve
ry apparent, but if you believe some of
them it can all be brought about by eating
nothing but raw wheat and turnips.
But the way you are to ho reached is
through Anti-slavery lectures, Peace lectures,
Temperance lectures, lectures on Phrenolo
gy and Mesmerism, in fine, anything to
which the people will listen, though they
have not done much with the Peace ques
tion; that doee not quite suit their views.
The Anti-slavery movement is tho grand
hobby. The theme of popular liberty is
till clung to as the surest road to tho popu
lar favor. There are lecturers scouring the
country upon this subject and they always
use it as a means of attacking the church
and government. Mr. Bates said he had no
doubt but the Anti-slavery movement was
gotten up in the first place for no other pur
pose and with no other view than to be used
as a means for the dissemination of these
iaCdcl principles. He had no doubt but
William Lloyd Garrison when he originated
the Antilavery enterprise did' it with the
olo purpose of advocating and disseiuina
tiaJ thi damnable doctrine. ' These doc-
trinoe are being widely liemirjeted and o
loduetriouely are they circulated that you
can scarcely hear an Anti -slavery, Temper
nee or Peace lecture, or a lecture upon any
kindred aubject, but that daggere ore driven
inn the cLiireii cither back-handed of frc,
nnJ sorry w..s he U say that there were
some in this section of country engaged in
their promulgation. And the abolitionists
need not deny their connection with these
doctrine. At an Anti-slavery convention
held in New York last year a resolution waa
adopted proclaiming the doctrine that the
only exodus for the slave being over the
grave of the American Union, and the ruins
of tho American church; therefore it was
the duty of all abolitionists to use all their
eflfjrU to bring about these ends. And at
another convention held in May last Wen
dell Philips of Boston, offered a scries of
resolutions embodying the same principles.
But Mr. Bates said what grieved him most
wrs that woman, she who owes all she is
and all she enjoys, woman who is indebted
for all she is ahove the heathen, to Christiani
ty, that woman who may thank tho christian
religion for the fact of hex being raised from
the condition of a mere thing, a brute, to
that of a rational, intelligent being, that she
should be found perambulating the country
publicly advocating this monstrous doctrine;
it grieves lue to the heart to find it so, aod
yet it is so.
Mr. Bates elosed by assuring his brethren
that he did not despair. Dark clouds and
dismal tempests are before us, yet I trust
in GjJ he will yet put all his cnemiei under
his feet and raiso up hit church to the admi
ration of an assembled universe. Jjut wc
shall have som trying scenes to go through
first, Tho prayer of his soul was that we
may pass through them safely, and that all
the cnenrics of our religion and the church
of God may be turned from the error of their
ways before it is too late. lie felt himself
called of God to warn thejn of the impend
ing danger and having done so must leave
them and pass on to his allotted work.

COMMUNICATIONS.
Mr. Eiutoh:
As an uncompromising aboli
tionist I feel much displeased at the pro-
eeedings of some of the anti-slavery men of
unio. .Many others as well as my sell have
been deprived of the riuht of speech, and
of the press by this class of would-be phi
lanthropists. 1 tin lollowtng was written for the "Lib
erty Advocato" and was rejected on account
of its anti-political character. If you are
willing, please give it an insertion.
For the Liberty Advocate.
Pursuant to notice, the political abolition-
ists assembled 111 Mt. Pleasant, Ohio, on
Tuesday, Aup. Cth, & were organised as all
other political bodies by nominating a Prrsi
dent, two Vice Presidents, two Secretaries
and a Committee of six to prepare business
ipr tue meeting. Alter two prolessod aboli
tionists attempted to speak, and were, not
called to order, but turbuleptly and diaboli
cally ailonced, it was announced that the
tiirubcm of that moating wero politician
and were organized t tuch, and they wish
ed to draw the line of distinction and keep
it up, so they applied iho gag law in a most
tnohocratical manner. This class of philan
t 'irnpisu remind me of the s terry of the Boy
and tho Grindstone.
"When I wa a little boy I remember one

THE CONSTITUTION PROSLAVERY.
Tho declaration of In lepeu li nio is a dif
ferent instrument trom tho Constitution of
tho U. SS. 1 ho forni 'r wis nothing mon
t'ann an act of dissolution of allegiance from
Great Britain. It was made ut the com
mencement of a fearful, desperate, and bloody
contest wnen an was at suikc. it Was a
death-like struggle, nnd in its terror, God
was invoked as tho Supremo Judge of tho
world to witness the rectitude of ilictr inten
tions. But like the death-bed repentancu ol
most sinners, when their prayers were an
swered they lost sight of tho rectitude ui
their intentions. In this act of separation
they were willing that men of all colors and
conditions should participate. But the Con
stitution was formed under different auspices
and for different purposes. Tho struggle was
then over. The sea of blood was liiuu ford
ed. The cannibal Eagle was sufUciently
gorged. The nation was flushed with victory
Gud and the hope of the poor slave were
forgotten. American Isr..el remembered no
more that they were strangers and bondmen
in Egypt. The colored man was uo longer
needed in the battle field, he was wanted on
the plantation to delray the expenses of the
war, and nil lus master s cutlers that h
might enjoy the blessings of liberty and as
sist in tue government ot the nation. L uder
lliese cirei'iusUiiees the couvention tuct to
tor.ua L enstitttnn, What was its object!
1st. To form 11 mora perfect L'ui m. lr.it
Hi. inn! A compromise between tho sijve-
u jldtng and nen-slave-holdjug States, wiili
all the advantages on one side. 'id. To cs
tiblish justice. How sol Uv laviipr down
rules for oflicoring and organising the ilill'er
ent departments of general Government,
3d. io insure dcuicsltc tranquillity, per
hapn this must mean to suppress luobs; and
keep down insurrections among tho slaves.
lllu To provide for the common defence.
That is, raise an army and navy, and make
appropriations' for their pay. 5ih. To pro
mote the general welfare and secure the bles
sings of liberty. Whose welfare and liberty
wero to he promoted and secured by this ob
ject of the Cotistilutioii! Tlio slaves! Then
surely the convuntioji wen) a pack ofcousum
mate block heads, or unprincipled Knives,
and the petitions to congress for the abolition
of slavery in tho District of Columbia, wor
thily thrown til ler the table, lo s.iy nothing
of the folly of forming a party in polling
for the abolition of slavery. JJut alas! the
liberty of the slave was never designed und
never affected to be secured by that proslav
cry document called tlvet Constitution of tho
United .States, Jt has been boastingly said
that the word stave is not so much as men
tioned in it. True, but a description is sub
stituted and one of the signers says it was
done through shumo. But the sl.ivo ougiit
to have been mentioned,und that too, in close
affinity with holy and righteous frocdnm.
That would have given cosisteney and stabil
ity to our Government. It would have rriv-
11 success to the experiment of republican
principles. It would havo made tho mother
country a convert to tho colonies. Il would

world; to them, the blessings of free Gov
ernments, fco t..r as tho conditi-m ot the
slave ig concorned, nothing, was gained by
the Revolution and adoption of the Constitu
tion, hut much was lost. The compromise
of the North Our nion with slaveholders
in this ungodly and disgraceful partnership,
is tho Rtrcng b of slavery. I tay then to the
gradualists, here is the place to begin the
work. Let n do commenced with the disso
lution of the Union. "Obey the living God !
nnd not your dead fathere," They but very
l.npcrfectly understood the nature of human
rights. The ago in which we live is progres
sive. I do not ask you to perpetiale another
bloody revolution, it would add nothing to
tho cause of freedom. Moral causes alone
produce moral effects. Violence and bloods
abed only load to vice and oppression; they
may clnnge the condition of some individu
als; but produce a far greater amount of evil
upon the whole. I don't ask you I) go to
the ballot box where you will havo to b:tOk
out, or be hacked up by physical force. The
Instrumentality I would invite you ro exer
cise, is moral power. Tim armor l would in
vite vou to put on, is omnipotent Truth, l.i
tice, "Mercy, and Love. Let your banner bo
tho cross, and your motto per hoc n'jnum mi
or'f. Then you may appeal to the Suprrti e
Judge uf the world for the rectitude of youi
ilitiMUimis when you have moral courage
enough to wench anti-slavery in view of the
prison and mob; in view of reproach and
diiath; when you are prepared to tike tho
plaeo of the poor down-trodden, over-tasked,
and naked slave, then you may unfurl the
banner of emancipation. Then vou will
break the covenant with Death, and the agree
ment with Hell. Let me intrent you to cease
to be participants in a compromise that binds
two and n half millions of our brethren in
an interminanle stata of bondage, one day of
which is fraught with more misery than ages
of that which our Fathers rose up to destroy.
My brethren of the Nnrth, I do not ask you
to co to the southern plantations, and pluck
tho victim from thu jaws of the tiger; nor to
revolutionize thu Ooverment, by polit.cal or
rrani'.ation, nor bv implements of war. Have
110 fellowship with the unfruitful works of
darkness. Disown slavery nnd slaveholders.
I ask you to do nothing, which a christian, a
man of peace, cannot do. What I ask you
lo do, is what I myself eannot refuse to do,
and yet retiiu a christian, moral char.-cter.
It is what Mercy, Justice and Love imperi
ously demand. It is t w ithdraw your sup
port fully nnd entirely from tho heaven ac
cursed system of American Slavery from ev
ery root and branch; seed anil oun: juice nnd

"I love affitition when there is cause for it
the alarm bell which startles the. inhabit
tints of a city, saves them from being bunv

THE REV. ELISHA BATES.
ftuiiEL liiuioKE lias liirm.-ihed us with a
copy of a sermon delivered by Elisha Bates
at Springboro' on tho 2oth of September, and
which was reported for this paper by a friend
of the former. It will he found on our fir.t
pao and wo commend it to tho attention of
our readers.
This is not the first time that priests have
resorted to fraud in order to further their de
signs. The religion which is taught by the
American Church is one stupendous system
of fraud, and they who are the pillars of that
chinch, and nro baptised into its religion,
must necessarily rrsort to deception if they
would sustain and propagate its principles.
But the time is coining, and is not far dis
tant, when a deluded peopla sU all no longer
be enslaved by spiritual despots, when ihe
true character of the religion of this .country
shall he known and appreciated, and its cor
rupt priesthood liurlod from tho plmiacle of
their power. Men arc beginning to see that
that religion which makes the gallows-tree
an institution of heaven, nud the hangman a
minister of God, which baptizes slavery as
Christian and sanctifies its ficndi h practi
ces, which places th. poisonous wtuetcii-p U)
on the communion table as a filling emblem
of the blood of Jesus, is not tho ciiurdi of
Christ, is not appioved by Xiod. AH that
the people need for their enlightenuieirt are
ficts and arguments, and appeals to that mor
al principle which the church with all its
religious machinery and cclosiasticaJ run
ning hns not been able entirely to tltslroy.
Give them but to know, teach itlieta but to
reason, and the priesthood, the mombers of
which, almost as numerous as tho locusts of
Egypt, have como up from tho di sorts of
moral depravity to destroy every green and
beautiful thing in tho land, sh.ill be swept
away by the wind of truth, and their names
and their memory rot in oblivion.
The clergy are cunning, cunningas the ser
pent of whose naturo they partake, and there
fore resort to all raannor of lies to prejudice,
mislead, e,nd doooiyc tho people. No means
are too vile for them; they laek'not the will,
however much they may abinctirtioe lack tha
power to work evil If a man's reputation it
to be sacrificed in ofderjm protect the char
actcr of the church, that reputation irimmrv
latcdjby tho priests, und they gloat over
its destruction witli as much delight as any
officer of the Inquisition aor felt in the tor-,
turcs of his victim. If excommunication is
needed in .ordur. W preserve tllKicunipniji
wickedness, they hand oyer, 'lie luejubei 0f
their dock to the buffctings of Satan, ahij co'n,
sign him to t-verlasting' torments, ' end ' then
praise tliomse.Wcii for doing tho pious act.
If a member of their craft leaves because of
their corruption, and reveals the iniquities:
they practice, they pursue him withmor
than Masonic hatred, and seek tho total' de
struetion of his infuenae.
Their power is departing from thenii'- "A
revival preachers they havo ceased to lead
.4 iid mould the public mind as they ones: did.
Their terrible picture of endless torments, of
the unquenchable fire in which the agonised
spirits of the guilty forever abide, has. lost its
effect; the people will not be revived. Cijnip
meetings have become a tame and unprofiia-,
ble concern, involving an expenditure of sec
tarian zeal and religion exhortation which
is but poorly repaid by a slim return of con
verted sinners. Protracted meetings, though,
protracted to an unreasonable length, catch
comparatively few in their meshes. Biblo
societies find that the world does not earo to
aid the church in circulating tho Bible, so
long as the church recommends it ns tho
hangman's guide, and builds with it a bul
wark for the protection of slavery nnd of war.
The fact is, many of the people have Tost eon.
fjdeneo in the religious teachers of this land,
and have no faith iri the principles- they in
cubate. The clergy are' beginning to
feel that if their occupation is not yet gone
that it is less honorable than it used to be,
and is not quite so dirinc in the popular esti
mation. J'eople are learning to speak of
llicru as, men, and not as something above
men, and above the frailties to w hich human
ity is subject. The divine right of priests ia
going where wc jiave lung since sent the di
vine right of kings; and the. common sense
of the people w ill soon lead tluiu to reject
that other relic of bigotry nud superstition,
not the exploded doctrine that the king can
do no wrong, but the too much believed one.
that the priest can do no wrong. Finding it
self skorn of its strength, and filling. that its
power is on the wane, priestcraft has s uglit
out other devices, has invented new games
by which to win men's Souls and bring them
in subjection to its despotic power. r
Finding tho people slow to he driven into
their sectarian folds, learning by experience
that tho foul oharacter of their religion was
turning many away from their teaching, thry
strove, to spek out something with which to
tenlfy those whom they desired to drive into
tiicij- toils, or to retain in their power, and
therefore called up tin) bugbear Infidelity,
with which to frighten the peoplo into sub
jection. Tuey endeavor to place 113 stigma
upon the mrWmuiory movements of the day.
They brand all i.s inlidcls who do not labor
in obedience to church dictation and for tha
promotion of sectarian power. The Rev.
Elisha Bates, formerly un Orthodox Quaker
preacher, but now a Methodist Episcopal
priest, is a fair representation of the lying
priesthood of this land. Himself a practical
infidel of the worst kind, a contemner pf
God's law, and with lying lip teaching tho
most nhominable doctrines to the community,
ho has tlia impudence to charge us with the
things of which he himself Is guilty. He
asserts that William Lloyd Garrison, aijd
those who stand with Mm. arc teaching "the
doctrines of the French Revolution which
drenched Europe with blood and filled her
with crime;" A more foul-mouthed slnhdnr
than this never fell from tho lips of man, and
the ungodly priest at tho timo he uiterred it
was a member of a sect which endorses tho
Christian character, and receives into church
fellowship, men who are L'uiltv of crimes
which the most sanguinary of tho Fiench.
revolutionists would hava had too much main
h md to perpetrate deliberately in tho name of
religion as the Methodist Episcopal Church
uas oone. However inconsistent and tyran
nical, Mood-thirsty and infamous were Rob,
.fspjprrc, Marat, Danton and their fellow la-
borers in iniquity, they were not so degrad
ed, so lost to all sense of justice, so destitute
ot every feeling of humanity as to claim a
right to take the soul of the newly born, ennh
it into chattclism, and remould its being into
a form of brutality; yet nieiuhors and preach
ers of the Melhudiat Episcopal Church urn
continually doing this, and that church prac.
tically teaches it to the world as Christian,
And when wc draw a comparison between
