HENRY CLAY AND DANIEL WEBSTER.
Diae Marih : Henry Clay it dead, every
one tsys. And he died without being Presi
dent of the U. States, the great oliject lor which
lie lived. He therefore in an important ionic,
lived to no purpose might at well not have
lived at all.
But there i another aente in which he may
bt eaid to have done even worse than merely to
have lived for no purpose. In hie relation to
his fellow men, it had been better that ho had
never been born.or that a mi'.Utonu had been tied
about hie necV, and he drowned in the deptha
of the tea, on the day in which he wa born.
No man if, or ever waa totally depraved, and
o Henry Clay waa not. Still, it ia well for
Humanity and Justice, for the poor and the
oppressed, when auch alarming approximations
to it, are removed out of the wuy. Even his
vtry virtues, were poison to the thousand darts,
by which he did his work of death on the live
and liberties of man. Ilia influence waa un
bounded almost, in hi immence circle, and as
a fatal as it waa boundlcae. Like the dragon in
the Mystcrica of Patmos, ho drew a third part
or the atara after him down to Porditinn.
With such an archangel of wickedness, belch'
lug out his pestiferous breath Uon its air, for
half century, no wonder that Kentucky with
all the natural resources possiblo, for becoming;
the very garden of the Continent, is morally and
mentally, a " Great Dismal Swamp," w hero
Mob and Misrule, like huge snake und croco
diles, hold almost undisputed sway.
Henry Clay will be, should be remembered
through the long conflict now waging in bchulf
of humanity and liberty, hy one single u1 (tr
ance, because it was so wide an opening through
which to discover his whole interior anul and ,
character. In the Scnato of the United States
be eaid, "Ditcutiion implies dcliljeration ; dcliber- i
alien II preliminary to uction. The people of the
b'urth have no right to act on Soulurn Slavery ;
und therefore they hart no right to deliberate
no right to discuss
. What tyrant could desiro a greater security
No tyrant aure, ever in this country, will long
njny it. Men may silence agitation in tho
moral world, when by act of Congress, or Con.
atitutional provisiona, they can chain the char
iot wheels of Aurora ; or forbid the gentle i
dews, which lay the dust in her footway. Hut ,
not before. j
For nil important purposes, Daniel Webster
ia dead also. Indeed he too, ffad better never j
have seen the light. The god's kindled a vol-
eano beneath hia fearful brow: lint he mado
ita lava, running rivers of destruction. AH the j
great ncBS of the former Presidents and all their .
prime ministers, was garnered up in Ms ainglo
self, and all that greatness lias been offered in
voluntary sacrifice to a deity more loathsomo
than all tho " Fiends Infernal," whose veil
forever shake tho walls of hell with shuddering
horror. Henry Clny waa tho real author of
toe Fugitive Slave Law. But Daniel Webster
claimed the hideous loatl ing, as hia own begot
ten and dearly beloved. ho but he would
not gladly father auch a satyr off upon any
monster whom it resembled, or who would
acknowldge it. Henry Clay, to his intiiiito
credit be it spoken, ncvor disputed ono word
upon the question of its paternity. He would
have yielded the point to any ambitious ilai
mant, all tho wny from " Hoi to tho Drugor.,"
down to Daniel Wobstcr. I
And now "the godliko" asks to bo made
president, not for any worth or worthiness 1
there ia in him ; but only for and through tho '
all worthy name of tins Ins son, O the ages
which it will require, to unfold tho deep dam
nation implied in such a demand.
Bui tho people south and north, have decided
the question. Daniel Webster is not less dcud
than Henry Cluy. Ho is more so, and it seems
to me he ia already suffering the torments ho
deserves. 1 wilt give you a specimen; from
the like of which may the good Uod ever keep

LYNN, Mass. July 16th, 1852.
Great Britain and South Carolina.
An inquiry has been presented in tho British
Parliament in regard to Manuel Fcrcira, a col
ored BiitUh seaman imprisoned in Charleston,
S. C. Hia complexion constituted his only of
fence. Lord Stanley replied, that it was tho in
tention of the government to test the emmtitu
tionality of the law thus imprisoning a British
subject, before the iSuprcmo Court of tho U. S.
The case is now pending before the State Court
of South Carolina, on a writ of habvat ixirpui,
prosecuted by the British Consul at Charleston.
The Court of South Carolina, unwilling to act
on the question postponed it some timo since,
until January next. The poor fellow in tho
meantime remains in prison.
South Carolina has not yet ventured to drive
the British Consul from the State as she did the
agent of Massachusetts viiitcd her on the
Tho Tribune says it ia not the fault of the
North that is left to a foreign diplomatic agent
to attempt to prevent tho grossest outrago upon
tho fcdcrul constitution. Wo do not seo why.
Except in tho single caso of tho Massachusetts
agency, the north has never undertaken to re
monstrate against, much less to defend cither
her constitution or her citizens from this gross
assault of tho South. And when Mr. Hoar and
his daughter were compelled to flee like hunted
culprits from the South, merely for proposing
to appeal to the constituted authorities, Massa
chusetts submitted like a lumb to the insult.
If tho whole North were not servilcs and cow
ards, it would not be left to a British consul, to
vindicate the American constitution, and tho
right of all honest and peaceful men to visit the
shores of South Carolina. If Massachusetts
had only the spirit which fired her, three quar
ters of a ccntuiy ago, Charleston would no more
have driven hor agent from the city, than she
now docs tho agent of the British Uovernmeut,
when he comes, upon the same errand.
Cool. The Tribune, trying to persuade the
Whigs to vote for Scott, says of thoso of Ohio :
" Having seen that wo who voted for Ocn.
Taylor did not thoruby betray the causo of Free
Soil, but more efficiently served it, they will act
with us at this time."
Wo aro friends of free soil, and should liko to
see a little of tho article. But we don't exactly
see how Taylor and Fillmnro have so efficiently
served 1'. Perhaps it was by leaving Utah and
Now Mexico open to slavery, or by the approval
and execution of the fugitive slave law, or per
chance the attempt to hang the Christiana citi
zena. Why dont Mr. Orccly specify the apcciul
A DtrFEKBSoa. Lamartino aaid that "Wil
berforee went up to tho throne of Uod with a
million of broken fetters in his hands, as evi
dence of a life well spent."
Lamartiue'a opinion of a good life ia material
ly different from Ihat of a multitude of churches
and divines of this day and this land. In their
estimation, fetters unbroken, and a commission
era certificate that they had holped to rivet
them upon tome poor victim, would be their
highest evidence of virtue and their beat past
port to Paradise.

By tho following paragraph from the True
Llcmocrat, it will be seen, that Mrs. Severance
of Cleveland and her family have had an almost
miiueulous escape from a terrible death. Why
do not conductors give warning of their ap
proach to crossinga of thoroughfares. Many
of tho crossings occur at curves, which prevent
tne di'covcry of tho train by carriage passen
gers until, at in this caso it is upon them. And
yet they often approach them without any
A similar narrow escape occurred recently on
tho Cleveland and Pittsburgh Road. A car
riage in which was our little daughter with te- !
vend of our friends was passing north, through
the town of Freedom. Tho railroad crossing ia
near a building which obscures the view of the
track from tho north, in consequence of which
the truin coming down was just about to meet
the carriage on tho track. A man, accing the
danger leaped across the track at the risk of hia
own life, seized tho horses heads and stopped '
them within only a few feet of tho locomotive
at it passe.!. Somo effectual measures should
be adopted to prevent such criminal reckless
ness or neglect.
CoMrs. Severance and family brought Mr. S.
to tho Mutinn at Willoughb'y, and, alter ho had
left for Cleveland in the passenger train, star
ted to return to Littlo Mountain, in their car
riage. Just as they were crossing tho track, a
second train appeared round the blulf; Mrs.
Severance, with great presence ol mind, pulled
tho horse back ; lho engine caught hi'ii and
toie hun from tho carriage, and unset it. But
fnitunatcly, neither Mrs. S. nor her children,
The Free Presbyterian.
This paper, the organ of tho Free rrcsbyte-
Church, has been discontinued. It has been a
well conducted paper, libcrul in itt views, and
faithfully advocating tho separation of tho
church, fiom all parlicipancy in slavery. We
aro sorry ro part company with it. It has been
discontinued, not for want of support, or from
discouragement, but becautc it was thought tho
cause could bo better served by itt union with
the Christian Press. Mr. Gordon, who has so
well conducted tho Presbyterian, has removed
to Cleveland, and is to bo associated as one of
tho editors of the Press, with Mr. B y nton of
Cincinnatti and Mr. Goodman of Chicago.
With this ablo corps of editors, the Press cannot
fail to exert a strong iufluciico upon tho church
in relation to slavery. It is printed in Ciuciu
natti. The Rival Pauties. C. J. Ingorsull of Penn
sylvania, with a acoro or nioro of other Demo
crats, wrote a letter to the Tammany conven
tion, in New York, week beforo last. Ha closes
his letter with a sentiment, which with remark
ablo candor, presents tho true mission and in
tcrcst of the Whig and Democratic parties. Tho
competition between them is the " vindication
of slavery aa part of American liberty," while
the only question of difference, it, who shall
hold tho otlicct. Speaking of the two National
Conventions, Mr. Ingersoll tayt:
Largs majorities of both parties, represented
in thoso Conventions, have emphatically declar
ed that Slavery, no matter whether right or
wrong, is part and parcel of our Stato rights,
with w Inch tho nation hot nothing to do but lo
let it alone.
I offer you, gentlemen, therefore, the follow

CLEVELAND, July 11, 1852.
Fmend Romnsox : The remains of Henry
Hay passed through this placo on Wednesday
last, en routo for Lexington, Kentucky. Of
courso guns wcro fired. When the newt was
received of his death on tho 29th ult., guns
also belched forth fiatno and smoke. Tn fact,
tho above, together with the Fourth of July
and the two nominations for the rresidchey, '

Tho "Clcvclund Herald," In tpeaking of the
proceedings, calls Henry Clay " the great Com
moner." To call Henry Cluy a "Commoner,"
it as much of a misnonnmer as it would bo to
call Ehcnczcr Elliot a " Duke." It is my hum
tic opinion that it would pnxzle tho Editor of
the lUraU, or any ono of Mr. Guy's numerous
friends, to point to a single trait in his
character which entitles him to the term "Com
moner." His whole lilo hat been in direct
opposition to tho great principle! of common
ality. Ehcnrzcr Elliot wat a Commoner.
Place him in tho tcalcs with Clay, nnd where
do we flind the latter Kicking tho beam !
Cnmparo Henry Cloy with ilbcrforec, Clirk

great principle has Cluy lived out and ad
voeotcd? Not one, unless it bo tho principlo
of theft and robbery ! John Quincy Adams
was a strenuous and bold advocate of the great
tight of petition. Not to with Clay. Compare
Henry flay with tint honest nnd benevolent
Quaker, Isaac T. Hopper, who left tho earth
bending beneath the good deeds ho had done,
for those around him : Clay appears as small
as ever. Remember, I am tpcaxing of both as
sieii, not as Senators, for God never gavo man
kind but ono title the highes that can be given
him man 1 But Henry Clay has ono honor,
if honor it can bo called, and that is this : ho
is said to have been lho " embodiment of Whig
principles," nnd Ihat is enough to damn ony
man through tho long ages of eternity, nnd
to crush him in both this and the life to come
with tho blackest nether millstouo of infamy.
I speak thus of Mr. Clay because I cannot
believe the doctrine advocate J by JosLrii Tueat
in tho "Anti-alavery Standard" that crimo
should bo denounced, but not tho actor. A
man guilty of wrong can never bo abstracted
from such wrong. The idea is preposterous.
Denunciation of slavery, without the slaveholder
is nonsense. I think tho reply of " W." in
yesterday's Bugle Completely annihilates friend
Trcut's vugary Henry Clay said, "Two hun
dred years of legislation has sanctioned and
ennclified American slavery." How can I con
demn this horrif ic sentiment without condemn
ing its author Both must full together.

Slavcily Society are wido awake in regard to tho

Meeting near Limaville.
BERLIN, July 11, 1852.
Dear Fuienu I Imngino my turprito and
pleasure, yesterday, Sunday, when visiting a
friond near Limaville, ho informed mo of a
meeting to bo held in a grovo near by, to dis
cuss the all important question of the day, tho
abolition of slavery. On arriving at tho placo
of mooting, we found tome thrso or four hun
dred persons assembled, to hear tome of the
oppressed raco themselves stand up and vindi
cats their God-given rights; and in to doing
they teemed to bo indeed rcgardod by the Pa
ler part of tho audienco at indeed brother men.
The meeting was addrosscd by Exum Ham
lin, Wm. Holladay, Win. Freeman, Uarman,
Behlcr, colored mon,and by Dr. Clover, Whito.
They could tell of tho horrors of slavery from
experience. Mr. Behlcr told a tcono that of
which ho was an cyo witness to, which is but a
drop in tho buckot of misery and wretchedness
thut every sixth man, woman and child of this
christian nation is subject to. Ho said ho saw
a man in whom tho tyranizing iutluonce of
aluvory hud not crushed every spark of feeling,
stand up in defenco of Lis wife from tho hellish
and poluting advances of her adulterous mat
ter. Ho was knocked down, drugged to
and chained fust to a tree, and a heap of lngt
piled around him and let on fire; in order to
burn him alive by tho alowest process possible
But when the firo increased to Ihat hit agouict
