In looking over an rid file of the Emanci
pator, wo chanced to light upon tho f ji U-.-.v-mg
well remembered aiticlp of Lewis Tap
pan, written six yo.ir3 ago, giving his rcasoin
for being opposed to the formation of a t!;ird
political party. The article has 1" t nam i f
its force I'V age; if anything, it has rather
(fained. Vo consider it unanswerable. Mr.
Tappan has since changed his views on this
subject. How he got oi-er his o wn i.re-uiuoni.i
we are at a loss to know; we should he plcis
i'd if he would inform ns in the next number
of his Reporter. 1'tt. Freeman.
From the Emancipator.
A THIRD POLITICAL PARTY.
Hrothkr Leavitt. It is quite manifest
that the abolitionists throughout ilia country
understand that tho editor of thn Emancipa
tor is decidedly in f.ivor of an Anti-Slavery
political party, and many of them believe,
that as the paper is tho organ of thn Kxve-u-tivn
Committee, thry, or a majority at least,
coincide with you. It is tree yon have ex
plained the matter, and assured tho readers cf
tha Emancipator that you have, expressed on
ly your own views on the subject. Stiil,
notwithstanding, tho Executive Committee
have, as yet, tulten no action on thn subject,
it will be generally understood that the Eman
cipator speaks the sentiments of the commit
tee. Permit mc, therefore as a member of
that committee, to say that it appears to mo
hihly objectionable to form a distinct polit
ical party not as our friend Alvun Stewart
intimites, because those who tints express
themselves are not weaned from old party at
tichments but for tho follow ing, among oth
1. It was not contemplated at tho forma
tion of tho American Anti-Slavery Society.
2. Tho Society has disclaimed, fivm the.
beginning, any such intention.
3. Wo shall lose our hold upon the public
conscience as moral reformers.
4. It would bo thought, and in many in
stincts justly, that we were not distnicrest
cd in advancing the cause of the slave an I
the free people cf color, but were niming af
ter the distinctions and emoluments cf oh'iee.
5. It would appear to multitudes that we
had lor-t our confidence in moral suasion and
appeals to the conscience and hearts of men,
and our confidence in tho CJod of the opprcss
J. C. Beeauso we should become less iullu
cntial with the great body of voters of both
parties, between which wc shall soon bold
tho balance of power our moral force being
greatly superior to our numerical force.
7. Because associating w ith political agi
tators, and employing tho best political ma
chinery, would dilute, so to speak, the qu-.li-ty
of our Anti-Slavery feelings, faith and 7.tl.
8. Because it would be Liking hold of tho
matter wrong end toremost as moral reionu
crs may change the character of politic.! par-
tizans, Dill poillie.il parties uie ni um to,
feet moral revolutions.
9 Hocauso it is but a part of our oh ire t to
bring about the emancipation of the. slaves by
tho political action of Congress, as it regards
the Districts, and by the political ucli 1.1 of
tha States, within their respective jurisdic
tions as wo aim to bring slaveholders to re
pentanco of the sin of slavi holding, which
-will be apt to be lost sight of in separate po
10. Because the constitntionof man is such
that political action, as it regards the leaders
especially, is apt to be an absorbing principle
to the neglect of moral and religious efforts.
11. Beeauso the policy already purr.ued,
4ia in many sections of country taught poli
ticians they must set up candidates wh will
Tote for immediate emancipation, and tho po
litical equality of the free people of color, or
they will not gain tho votes of abolitionists,
or elect their candidates.
12. Because tt.ero is reason to believe that
perseverance in tho determin ition to voto ir
respective of parly, will command tho res
pect, excite tho (ears, and ultimately bring
to terms tho leaders in both of tho present
or:it nolitieal nartiCB of tho country.
13. Because tho aUempt to form a distinct
nolitieal party would, instead of purifying tho
nnlitiM nf tho country, throw into tho trout
rank of the anti-slavery cause, men who lire
aspiring to oiTicc, and enlist tne activity
multitudes who care little for the sin of sla-
rery, or tho moral and religious improvement
of the siTenoiner, er me euMou
Mus, instead of purifying the political at
mosphere, and indn-iiig the people tn vote
tr.im moral principle, there would ho daturor
of diminishing the moral feeling 0f the friends
of human right..;.
1 1. Bocansn we should Jose, In a great de
gree, the sympathy, prayers, and aid ofabo
lilionists in other countries, if we descend
from our present position, as experience ha3
taught them that the anti-slavery cause has
prospered when abolitionists have kept aloof
from political partvism.
13. I'reause wo should necessarily nrrav
ag dust us ail the party feelings cf leading
politicians through ait the country, whereas',
by not adopting separate or rvd 'atinie:, miai
bers of the JiU'crent ptrlics can art in concert
with us on this subject, rct-iii.iiii their pres
ent predilections on other subjects.
Allow me to add, that, in 'this city thero
are other objection peculiar to this place.
It!. Our numerical force is comparatively
small though f'r from being so small as tho
aT.'Tcgatj of abolition votes thrown, in the
estimation of our r.pp.-nrnt, tudictos and
v. iil probably continue to be small until the
country is reoen. ra'"d, as large cities arc tho
thelites !" physical but not i f moral revolu
tions. 17. The r
losti re of our scaa:l nu
merical luree, at the central pl.ee of r.ctir.n,
necessarily carries the impression lb ;t our
inar.d force ii proportionality weak, whereas,
asanall num'i. r of active ami unyielding ab
olitionists with the means entrusted to them,
r.t the centre of foreign and inland intelli
gence, may, with tiif blesdng of (jod, set in
motion thn physical, inteMeciiial and moral
tnergies of hiiiidrcls of thousands dispersed
over th" country.
f. Defeat, in so li"ge a e!;y. is caieula
ted to dishearten c ad jutois in other parts of
the I'riioii. and to encourage opponents, more
than thn defeat of ten times the numerical
strength of nhoii'.iont.sls elsewhere.
And permit me to say, that I have snmo
personal reasons in addition to the forgoing:
1. The following resolution was udoptt-d
at 'he Tilth annual meeting (lH;i on inv
" -s.W, That we shall deprecate the
organisation of any abolition political party,
but that wo recommend to abolitionists
throughout the country to interrogate candi
dates for office with reference to their opin
ions on s
1 lnirfMS ooimrrn o u' t'i ..hn itn...
, an. I to vot:i irrespective of party
for those only who will advocate the princi
ples ol universal liberty.
J. I have strcnunu.-dy asserted, for year
that it was no part of tha design or policy of
abolitionists to form a distinct political par
ty, and that I could not retain my situation
in the Executive Committee if such a mate
rial change was to take place in the meas
ures of the Society; End 1 was among tho
large majority, at the Nationil Convention at
AIS -ny, that opposed the project of separate

AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
Andrew H atfield, a freo person of color re
siding in Missouri, without license, was ta
k 11 before the Recorder in .St. Louis, lined
S10 and costs, and committed to jail until the
line and costs should be paid. A laheas ccr
run was obtained, and the petitioner appeared
before Judge Krum. The follow ing proceed
ings, rcporu.-d for the St. Louis .Vnc F.ra,
tiit-ii took place.
. " I'pon the hearing before Judgo Krum,
the petitioner proved by two witnesses, who
had known him from bis birth, that he was
born i.i the. State of Pennsylvania, of parents
who were free, an I citizens of that State, and
that be had resided in the city of St. Louis
about six years. The Constitution and laws
of Pennsylvania were also proved, showing
tint the petitioner was entitled to eiti.'.rnship
in that State. After nuking this proof, t'ae
petitioner's counsel demanded his discharge,
on thn ground that thn Legislature of this
Statu bad no constitutional power to require
the petitioner to obtain a license before ho
could bo permitted to reside in this State.
'1 'ho petitioner's counsel relied on tho first
paragraph of section 2nd, urticle 1th of the
Coniiituiion of ths Fnitid States, which
reads as follows: "The citizens of each
Stato slu'l bo entitled to all tho piivilcges
and immunities of the citizens in the several
Mites. And also tho resolution of Con
gress of the '.'nd of March, 1MJ1, declaring
the -f:m:inn?n!al e:nl;tim" upon which the
State of .Missouri was admitted into the L'ni
011, and the public act of the (ieneral Assem-
bly of Missouri assenting to said "fundamen
tal cue'i'ioii." The abovo ' fu nda menial con
dition ' is to the ed'ect that Missouri, in con
formity with the 1th clause of the SiSth sec
tion of tho third articla of the constitution of
said State, by which any citizen of tho Uni
ted Sutes shall he excluded from the eniov
ment of any of the privileges and immunities
to which such citizens are entitled under tho
Constitution of the United States, &c. The
motion was allow ed, and the petitioner dis
charged on the Gth of November, 1815.
If this decision be law, how can a free per
son of color from Pennsylvania bo excluded
from tho right of testifyinl in Missouri!

Tho following extract is from a letter of
Henry C. Wright to tin editor of tho Libe

his right and duty to seel; its destruction by
Christian means. if it bo said that i
am come to this kingdom to seek aid to over
throw the political and dmiuitie institutions
of that republic, my answer is, that I have a
right so 1 1 do. It is my duty, as a man, and
a chrisUan, to seek to array the world against
American slavery, th 3 American Church and
American Republic, as the deadly foes ol
Ood and man. It is an honor 1 1 any mm
t ) be an ius'.rument in enlisting tha feelings
and arraying tho pr.i tico of Britain mid Lie

1 h ive no wish to repel the charge that 1
am in this kingdom for the purpose of array
ing against the American Constitution and
Union, tho public sentiment of the nation,
and to sock the aid of the people here to pro
cure tli lie overthrow. And when I say this,
ii is unnecessary for me to add, that the only-
aid I wish, or would accept is, that of mora',
an I rr.'i-'iuui intut nee. I want to have mciiv
bership in that sliveholding compact to be
regarded as membership ot a b ind ot lne.i
way robbers. 1 hope to so that day arrive
when an American slaveholder or his apolo
gist be ho le i!eot, Ambassador, Doctor
ol Divinity, or Brigadier will bo received,
on bis landing in this kingdom, as a pud;
pocket, a horse thief, or midnight assassin
would bo received. That day is coming
slowly, but surely.

A FUGITIVE SLAVE.
Twenty years of age recently ecaped from
the evangelical clut.'h of a pious Baptist Dea
eon of New Orleans, arrived in our village
last week. The poor fellow comes from the

other than earthly devils, not needed. The
poor fellow brings a back all hewn and bat

The Central Court, yesterday, took up the
important ci3 of the Commonwealth of Vir

We heard a part of Mr. Palton's opening ar
gument for tho prosecution, and wo do not
hesitate to say that it was one ol the ablest

P. sustained the original claim of Virginia to
the territory, of which tho State of Ohio is
part, and relied upon the terms of the deed
til cession to show that shn had not granted,
and had therefore reserved the rivor itself.
Ho then contended that the rieer was not
merely the water limited by the low water
marks, but tho whole bed of the stream from
bank to bank. Much authority was cited
bearing on this part of the question, and one
