Examination of Charges against the
American Anti-Slavery Society.
An examination the charges of Mr. John
Scoble and Mr. Lewis Tappan against the
American Anti-Slavery Society, by Edmund
Quincy, a Vice President of the Society, and
Corresponding Secretary of the Massachusetts
Anti-Slavery Society—Dublin, 1852.
Such It the title pagonf pamphlet of twen

A one in the aerici of effort of thi character,
thero haa been circulated in Urent Britain a
pamphlet written by Lew in Tupputi, with an in
troduuiion hy John ovohle. This pamphlet un
der the gui-c of a reply to charge brought
against the American and Foreign Anti-Slave

ercr, replying to the general charge, that abo
litionist I avo changed their measure, by a
pretty mtUfactory ttatcment of the fact that
abolitinuittt have as good n right ns other peo
ple, to grove wiser aim better. t
Wo givo his answer to tho first charge, " that
the Society has abandoned it origiuul ground
oi political action."
We hope tho whole pamphlet will be repub
lished in this country, and extensively circulated.
How hat the action of the American Anti
alavery Society agncd with it principle, as tn
the lirst point, of political action ? In 1 33.1, Mr.
Garrison and the founder of the American
Anti-slavery Society, did, as Mr. Scnblc quote,
express the following opinion, that "there are
Iho highest obligations resting on the people of
the Free States to remove slavery by morul and
political action, as prescriped by tho Constitu
tion of the United Slates." Meaning, that they
would not do under tho Constitution whut the
Constitution docs not permit to be done. Also,
that k-iwo it intention to endeavour, "in a
constitutional way, to infliioiico Congrcsa to ,
abolish slavery" w herever it had tho power to
do so j and to prevent tho admission of any
new alavchnlding State. Tho American Socie
ty still hold thut it ia tho duty of tho Free
States to remove slavery by moral and political
action. Only, they buvo attained, after long
and bitter experience, to tho conviction that it
la a moral and political impossibility to remove
it by political action, 'a prescribed by the
Constitution of tho United States." They,
therefore, enforce the duty of the Free Siutcs,
aa a body, and of each separate one, a nn indi
vidual, to withdraw from tho confederacy, and
to consent no longer to bo the instruments of
holding their fc!low-men as slaves. And they
have never ceased asking Congress to do those
things, and that in 11 a constitutional way," viz.
by pqtition and remonstrance Their present
position they hold to be a perfect autistuctioti of
the intention, expressed or implied in 1 H'i'i, of
the duty of using political Hctiou" for the re
moval of slavery, as read iu tho light of the
THE NO-VOTING THEORY.
' Bu!, it may be tuid, Mr. Garrison and hi
Society decline voting or holding office under
tha Constitution, and thus the ' political ac
tion" then contemplated ia neglected. Admit
ting thia assertion, although it is an assump
tion of tho very point at issue, (for there aro
manifold ways of using political action besides
voting and holding olliuo, or Heaven help the
English people !) admitting thi to have been
Included in the idea then entertained and ex
pressed of political action, wo e .tmot hold our
aolvos precluded from a course of plain duty,
a it now lie beforo us, by what was thought or
aaid in thoae days of comparative ignorance.--It
waa not for year after thut time, that the
truo nuturo of our political rclutiona was de
veloped to our minds, which rendered our pres.
nt courso logicully and morally obligatory.
The Constitution of tho United State being
Ux tcripia, a w ritten document, its requisitions
rc, of course, for tho instruction of thnso ap
pointed to execute it. Now among the instruc
tion laid- down in thia fundamental law are,
that the Africun slave-trado shall not be pro.
hibitcd for twenty ycurt (i. e. until 1808,) w ith
tio guarantee for iu prohibition then, or against
ita renewal at any time; that fugitive slaves
ahull be returned to their masters, on proof of
their condition; that lave insurrection includ
ed among ; doincstio insurrection," and tho
only one thot can cvor requiro the help of tho
GetMirul Government) abull bo aupprcsscd by
trie strong arm of tha nation; and thut thu
slaveholders shall, virtually, havo three vote
for every five slaves they hold, a provision
which ha delivered tho wholo nation, ever
aince iu birth, into tho hand of the Slavehold
tng Philistines. The roason why Mr. Oarrison
and thoie who think with him, cannot hold an
office which require a preliminary oath to tup
port tha Conatitution of the United Sutea,
(which U nearly every office, National or State)
it, because they do not mean to auppoit it in
thi particular, (especially tho aecond and
third) and conitquetitly cannot iwsw to do so.
If they tako the oath, they must mean either to
keep it, and do those abominable action if call
ed upon or tn break it, and thut obtain power
and emolument at the price of perjury. None
of theso thing do they mean to do. They
mean never to assist in the recapture of a fugi
tive slave; but, contrariwise, tn obstruct and
pievent such a crime to the best of their ability.
And in caso a servile revolution should be milk
ing head at the South, they aro determined at
least not to be found fighting minimi the insur
gent. Therefore they ret use holding an ottic
under u.h an oath; and therefore they rcluso
to appoint o hers hy their vote to do so, or to
swear to do these crimes as their attorney or
deputies, which tl.cy hold it foul guilt to do
It was on thia ground, undoubtedly, that Mr.
Giitrison said, (if he over said) " if my singlo
vote would emancipate all tho slaves in the
United State to-morrow, I would not givo it !"
('ntrod. p. 4). Would even Mr. Scnblo lay
that if bo could fico the slaves, or savo tho
souls of nil mankind, by telling a deliberate
falsehood, ho would do it? I prcsumo not,
though there may bo thoso who might think
bis hesitation strungo. F.vcn the llev. Dr.
Dewey would not tell a lie to save tho Union,
though ho would scud hit mother (or, as after
wards amended, bis ton) biuk to shivery to do
it. This is precisely why Mr. Garrison could
not east his bullol to do what ho would not do
himself, viz. return fugitive slaves, or put
down a servile revolution, or swear to do theso
things, with tho intention of breaking his oath,
when the case contemplated hy it arose. We
do not refuse to hold oilier, or vote, under the
United Sta'cs Constitution, as abolitionists, but
as honest men. It is not the emancipation of
the slaves, primnrily, that we contemplate in
this course, but the preservation of our personal
honour, of pur individual integrity. e ac
knowledge that our tccond duty is to the slave
our fnt is to our own souls, Tho slivo bus a
right to rk an) thing of us except our honour j
tlt.it be has no right to utk, even lor his own deliverance.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF THIS THEORY.
T..is course we adopt, irrespective of its ef
fect on the anti-slavery cause. Hut wo believe
that, liko every honest and sinceio currying-
of a true principle, it will have a fur great
inlliieiiee iu its favour than nny time-serving
conduct. We, at least, establish the fact of our
own singleness of purpose, to the satisfaction
our deadliest enemies. We give up, lor the
sako of a puro conscience, what en American
prizes next to if not above his salvation, tho
holding and bestowing of ollice. Wo hnvc all
the strength of mi uumistukcubly disinterested
posi'ion. We limy be fuuatics, but we eertnin
ly arc not sell-seekers. Wo aro not liublo to
that imputation of selfish ends, to which all,
even the most honest, whoso anti-sluvery way
lies through the priiulosc path to offi.e, must be
exposed. And our opportunity to do all that
tho most successful anti-sluvery purtizanship
can accomplish at tho present stage of our his
tory, viz. tho continual agitation of tho slave
question, the incessant irritation r.f tho na
tional conscience, is in no degrco diminished,
rather greatly increased, by the uncompromis
ing front we present to the enemy. The first
thing to bo done is to change the uiii'wii of the
nation, to make it really desirous of getting rid
slavery. This wo are doing, and when it i
done, the voting w ill take care of itself. Until
i done, all tho voting and drilling of frag
mentary parties, is mere beating the air. Whut
small amount of political abolitionism exists,
now, in tho Frccsoil, Whig, or Democratic
parties, owes it existence, by the confession of
tho candid among thrimclvcs, to the agitution
ominrnced and carried on by Mr. Garrison and
those identified with l.im. And it is the iucx
orublo fidelity of that censorship, iu rcbuko of
shortcomings uud denunciation of backsliding,
thut maintains In the Political Auli-sluvcrv
Movcmcut the very moduiato degrco of vilulily
Mr. Scoblc think; it impossible that the great
body of abolitionists in England, ' who hud
finally brought about tho extinction of slavery
the British colonics, hy political as well aa
morul action, can continuo their connection
with men holding tuch sentiments us to voting
uml giving them a practical direction." Now
rather strikes mo thut thoso aro tho very
men to opprcciule tho power of puhliu senti
ment, outsido of tho government, but acting
upon it. How many of the abolitionist who
extorted thut boon of justice from an unwilling
government had tho right of voting ? A very
modcruto proportion, I imagine. How many
the masses that compelled tho Reform in
Parliament, and accomplished the pcuceful
Revolution of 1832. wcro parliamentary elec
tors Not ono in ten. How wcro Catholic
Emancipation and tho Repeal of Teat and Cor
poration Acta effected t II y tho voting of the
Catholics and Dissenters, mainly? Nay, vori
ly. Tho philosophy of all these great reforma
tions was precisely that of the American Anti
slavery Society. The movers of them first ngi
tutcd tho general mind, and made it intelligent
ly determined that they should bo carried, and
thia resolution tho electors and tho elected
wcro but the instruinentt. Until the public
mind was brought to thi invincible determina
tion, all political maiiouvcring was vain and itn
potent. Tho anti-slavery movement in thi
country is now in thi ttano. Wo aro engaged
thi work. It i a vastly ruoro arduoua work
than uny or nil of thoso English agitation. It
strike at what Mr. McDullio truly called " the
corner-stone of our Republican Edifice." An
agitation in England for the abolition of tho
Crown would bo an apter analogy to ours than
any ita history baa yot afforded. And tho sua-
cess of our enterprise it fur more difficult of
accomplishment than any reform proposed in
your more fortunate country. It may sound
paradoxical, but it ia demonstrably true, that
the popular will la more powerful in England
than In Amorica, considered In their national
capacity. In iheFrco States, answering in eomo
meaturo to your municipalities, the popular
voice may be more immediately potential than
wi;h you ; but in Congress, which antwer to
your parliament, it ia but at the idle wind
, which the Sovereign Slavrocraey that reignt
there regards not. We think we discern clear
ly that the Union of the Free with tho Slavo
State it at once fatal to the bores of the slaves
and increasingly demoralising to the Frco
( State. And, therefore, wo urge upon them
J the duty of separation, for their own takct, at
j welt a. that of the .laves. Thero can bo no .1.
tcrnativc but disunion, proceeding either from
j the Free or from the Slavo State, or the utter

Pcimit me, while upon thia aubject, to illut -
istt by tome analogout caset in your own his
tory. IIuvo you not always had non-jurors
among you, from Archbishop Summit and
child and Alderman Salomons, who havo lost
or refused office because thev would not t near

did not mean to do Why did not tho Duke ei
Noilblk and tho Earl ol Shrewsbury and tho
other Catholic peers tnko their placet in tho
House of Lords, and help to pass tho Emanci
pation Pill r They had only to ubjurc tho Popo
and acknowledge tho supremacy of the King)
Why did Daniel O'Connell, when ho wa sent
by Cluro to tho House of Commons, turn back
from the bur, and return to Ireland, when his
voico could have helped to much tho deliver
unec of hit religion Ha had only tho tame
aim; Ic ceremony to past through. Tho answer
is in every one' mouth. Because no public or
private advuntugo could bo well purchased at
tho cost of telling a lie. Thut it just our posi
tion. Even t3 accomplish tho dclivcrauco of
the sluves, supposing the case, which we utter
ly deny wo cuunot do tho mean, cruel, and
wicked uctt rquircd hy tho Constitution.
Therefore, wo cunnot swear to do them ; even
with the mental reservation of breaking our
uatht. Therefore, we cannot put another in our
place, by our vote, to do and to swear these
thing for us.
There is one tcnlcnce of Mr. Scoblc'a Intro
duction, to which I must draw your attention
beforo leaving this topic, ns a most cxtraordi
nary union, not of "simplicity and truth," but
of simplicity and falsehood. Ho tays Mr. Gar
rison's party, "calling itself tho American
Anti-sluvery Society," " hating discovered tome
new made of interpreting the Cnnetitiuion of the
Vnited State: or rather, HAVING ARRIVED
AT THE CONCLUSION THAT ALL GOV
ERNMENT, NO MATTER WHAT ITS
FORM, OR HOWEVER MODIFIED, 13 A
USURPATION OF NATURAL RIGHTS,
repudiates all political action." At I am desi
rous of strictly observing the parliamentary de
cencies of discussion, I w ill not affirm that Mr.
Scoblc knew tho proposition above distinguish
ed hy small CArrr.iL to bo a liu. But I do af-'
firm, most unhesitatingly, that it is Lio of
the First Magnitude. And, moreover, that if
Mr. Scnblo did not know it to bo such, ht
miijht havo known it, by a very brief inquiry in
tho proper quarter. The American Anti sluvc '
ry Society never took any such ground. If
any of its mcmbert have ever expressed opin-
Ions which might bo distorted and caricatured j
into aueh a stutpinent. it was in the r uriviita i
capacity, and their numericul proportion to tho
members of the Society is hardly appreciable.
Tho great majority of the Society have no fuult
to find with tho Constitution of tho United
States, except iu pro-slavery requirements.
They aro quite ready to bestow or exercise
power, as soon as these impediments arc remov
ed out of their way.
The simplicity of the claute printed in italic!
is quito at noticeablo as the falsehood of the
other. '' Mr. Garrieou't party hare ditcocered
tome new mmle of interpreting the VoiuliluUon of
the Vnited Statu!" It was they, wa it, that
gave the generally received construction to tho
pro-slavery clauses ? I wonder whe'her tluve-
ry itself waa not an invention of theirs ! Mr. !
Ga'rison and " hit party" are not o often in
majority, that they can forego the rare luxu-
ry of thut position on this occasion. But ns it '

CALL FOR A YEARLY MEETING OF FRIENDS AT
A joint committco appointed by Now Garden

Friends, to bo held at Salem ; commencing the
first, First day of tho Ninth Month, 1832, and
tuko such action as will promote thut object.
Wo bclievo tho titno has come when thoso
mcmbert of society, who desire something high
er morally and spiritually than tho present posi
tion of the Ohio Yearly Meeting of Friends,
end other popular religious organizutiont.should
associate themselves together, oncouraging and
strcngthiiing each other in advancing their
own moral and social interests, and benefiting
by their influence, examplo and practice, op
pressed end Buffering humanity.
