THE MORMONS.
' Tim Mormons h ave published an appeal to
the people of the tTnitcJ .States, as earnest
' and eloquent as that of Cassius M. Clav.
They say that "tbrieo have -they been driv-
: en, wliile in the State of Missouri, from their
lands their siered homes and firesides.
rilloon thousand of them have been exiled at
tho point of the bayonet; from one of the
" States of this groat Republic, suffering the
loss nf thousands of valuable farms and com
forlaMe dwellings; while scores of them, in
cluding women and little children, were hor
ribly murdered without the least resistance."
They then recount their grievances since
thry left Missouri and settled in Illinois and
conclude as follows:
"15 ut listen, ye Americans, and tremble
fur your country; listen to the revolting scenes
.. tho accumulated sufferings heaped upon
your Unfortunate fellow-citizens; for scarcely
had they wined tho tears of sorrow and deep
mourning from their eyes, before they were
compelled to flee fot their lives from the smo
king ruins of their own houses, Bet on firo by
this same gang of murderers, w hoso hands
were still dripping with the blood of inno
cence. ' Six days were this piratical banditti:
permitted to go from house to house with the
fire-brands of destruction, without the least
resistance. Upwards of one hundred hous
es were consumed to ashes; scores of cattle,
horses, &.' . stolen or WRntonly destroyed, to
gether with immense quantities of grain and
other property. But at length, through the .
active exertions of tho Sheriff, the house
burners and murderers arc dispersed, and
peace 13 again apparently restored to the suf
iercrs. Dut what do we behold? No soon
er are -these land pirates checked in their
mad career, than all the adjoining country is
in arms, threatening death and extermination
upon unoffending, law-abiding citizens if
they would not consent te leave tho country.
Thirty thousand American citizens now have
thoir choice, either to go into banishment
from this boasted Republic, or see themselves,
their wives and children cruelly slaughtered
without mercy.
Ye fathers of tho Revolution! Ye patri
ots of "7b' ! Is it for this that ye toiled, and
suffered, and bledl Is this American liber
ty? Is this "tho land of the free the home
of the brave?" Is this the grand asylum for
the oppressed ol every cHine!
Must your noble sons be wholly and to
tally deprived ot every right so honorably
purchased and bequeathed to thein by your
iioine deeds!
Must they be driven from this renowned
Republic to geek an asylum among other na
tions, or wander as hopeless exiles among
the red men of the western wilds?
Must they take tho last lingering look at
tho graves ot their venerable lather who as
sisted in fighting the baulcs of American
Liberty; and then, driven from the land of
their birth, hide themselves in the dens and
caves of the Rocky Mountains, to escape the
relentless fury of their oppressors?"

PHONOGRAPHY.
This term, as its etymology signifies, means
writing by sound. It is applied by Isaac
Pitlmari to an invention of his in tho alpha
bet. Jf you couceivo additions to be made
to tho alphabet until no letter shall have but
una sound, and then imagine them to be so
changed in form as to be written with tho
greatest possible ease and speed, you will
have nn idea of the Phonographio alphabet.
All silent letters being omitted, and tha wri
ting being dono entirely by sound, all diffi
culty in learning to spell and pronounce is
obviated, and at least four-lil'ths of the time
saved. All tuiiguagoH are written in the same
hnd Hud cm be read with ease by the phon
ographic scholar, requiring but little time
wiiii the assistance of a good Lexicon to ac
quire a knowledge of any of them.
Considering tho great uaving of time; that
it Is-shorter than Stenography; plainer than
the long hand; the ease with which it is ac
quired; and its effect on the acquisition of
lofcign languages, it must be considered an
invention not" equalled by the art of irintin?
itself. It Lids fair lor coming into almost
imu.oJiulc u$n all 'ovc,i tho world. There

EKS.'
he-
the
for
It may not ho amiss to relate some conver
sation, between some special friends and
myself, to show the course the enemies of
the Anti-slavery cause are taking to frustrate
and render abortive all our exertions to pro
mote said cause. Not long since, I was pass.
ing the house of an old friend, with whom
had Jong held peculiar friendship, and chris
tian fellowship wlicn I was a member of the
Presbyterian Church. Both tho heads of the
family were my intimate friends, and this in.
timacy has not at all been interrupted, not
withstanding I some eight or ten years since
withdrew from said Church with which they
are nowfoenneoted
I called to spend a short time in social
chat and take dinner, as I often do when
travelling that way. All seemed very agree
able until the Anti-slavery subject came up,
they then enquired whether I had embraced
the doctrine that Abby Kclley had been pub
lishing. I answered in the affirmative.
They said they were much surprised that a
man of my age and experience should follow
that worthless girl who was travelling about
the country, with young men, sometimes
with one and then with another, ain a dis
graceful marred. I obeorved, she does not
travel alone with young men, but always has
women in company with her. Of this cir
cumstance, they said they had not before
heard, and that they could hardly believe me,
notwithstanding, I have llieconfidejico to be
lieve that Ihey have always, from our first
acquaintance considered me a man of truth;
or to say tho least, they had never manifest
ed anything to the contrary. They asked
me however, if I could believe that she was
a good woman? I answered, I do. Can
you believe that any persons who speak
against Goorge Washington, and the Consti
tution of the United States, are good people?
I replied, can you believe that George Wash
ington would have signed the Constitution
before spoken of, if he had felt as great con
cern for the freedom of the African race as :
he did for his own liberty, and that of his.
own family, orjcol or? At this I thought the
temper of my friends was somewhat ruffled.
and they said that any man who embraced;
such sentiments, and took the course that I .;
was pursuing, was worse than the traitor
Arnold, and ought to suffer accordingly.
replied, you may know for a certainty, that
you are on tho Devil's side, for Christ
strictly forbade his soldiers to resort to such
means as you approve. My female friend
then observed, no woman has any right to go
preaching about tho country- And so we
parted.
I ilo not pretend to say that I have given
word fur word, all our conversation, that
would be impossible, but I have stated the
substance, as neari I can recollect.
I would say this interview with my friends
has led mo to some serious reflections. And
1st. I would raeution the circumstance that
my friends had not heard, that our friend
Abby had females in her company, when
travelling, or where she put up. They had
heard of males but not of females. This re
minded mo of an ancient anecdote. An In
dian sold a Deer to a white man, who agreed
to take it in the woods, where the Indian told
him he might find it hanging up; and as the
Indian had business some other way, he gave
his friend directions how to find it. He
mentioned a brook, and several 'trees, and
then noticed the place where the deer hung.
The man paid the Indian, and then went in
search of his purchase. The Indian also
went his way. Tlie man found the marks
but bo deer. Not long after the two sharp.
ers came together again; the man began to
reprove the Indian for deceiving him. Tho
Indian replied you no find de brook, de tree,
and all the udder marks? O yes, but no
deer. Well, its pretty well for poor Indian
to tell half true. And so the story ended.
My mind has also been occupied in
calling to remembrance the heinous nature
of the great crime I committed in questioning
the disinterestedness of the spirit of George
Washington, and the character of the Con
stitution of the United Slates. Probably
my friends would not have thought me worth
hanging, if I had reproached the living God,
or have spoken contemptibly of his word. -But
my conscience would have reproved me,
much more than it has done since the afore
said inteiview. I have also been thinking
some, on what my female friend said, that is,
that no woman has any right to go about
talking publicly: I suppose she meant to
sustain this by 1st. Cor. 11 th 34, "Let
your women keen silence In the Churches, I

often heard this same woman speak In the

all women to say all they can in behalf

at the great change that has taken

Xenia is a neat thrifty looking country vil-

hour of the meeting advertised for friends
foster and Kelley. This fact is plain from
abundant evidence which brevity forbids me
to mention. One fact will be sufficient as
proof. An elderly and most worthy man, an
active church member, and an active Liberty
parly man, yet one whose heart of humanity
is so large and warm that the church can l
entirely freeze it, neither can party crush it,
had made an urgent request for Alibv to come
to Xenia, assiuing us that she should havo
their largo church, and a crowded audience.
Ac. Vet alter the ineetinif had been adver

erated on the people, this same good friend
wrote a letter to Oakland, in which was man-
tested much doubt as to
