WILLIAM (JOOIIELL, from llm Iiiwincw

themselves against tlio usurpations of llm
slave power; while wo cheerfully accord to
llicili the credit of un honest nnd earnest de
votion lo the cause of emiiiicipnlioii nnd hii
man lieedoin, awl while we cheihdi the hope
that they will lie led by their futnru expe
rience to occupy such n position, thill wo
tuny find it consistent nnd proper to disband
Ihu Liberty parly ami cooperate with them;
yet, on n careful cximiiuitiun of tlieir pint
form, ms adopted ut Pittsburg, vn urn com
ielled to conclude that 1 1 if lime, him not Jet
in rived in w hich so desirable o consuiiimu
lion rim be realized.
Believing, an we do, tlint there is no moro
legality in h 1 1 1 v 1 1 1 1 1 1 i i than there is any
oilier tin in of theft mid robbery, we conceive
thtil the distinct enunciation of tlint great
truth by 1 1 to friends of liberty in this roiiutry
nt the present crisis, is as essential lo their
success as it was to tlio success of (iraiivillc
Sharp mid his nssociilca, in procming the
judicial abolition of slavery in England, and
to Win. Pitt nnd others in procuring the uct
of Parliament prohibiting the African Slave
trade, nnd ns it was to Tlinmns Clarksou nnd
others, in procuring the abolition of Slavery
in I lie British West Indies.
Believing that shivery is not only illegal
but unconstitutional, nnd tlint Iho fc. Slates
nro constitutionally bound lo guarantee to
every State in this Fliion o republican form
of government, (such a republican govern
ment ns in the language oi' Ji lli rson, shall
secure to every citizen his oiiginnl rights in
bis person nnd bis property, uud in their
iiiaiiagenieul) wo cannot consent to co-oper-nto
with the Freo Democracy, while they
continue to leavo to the Stales the whole

Believing that it is impossible fiir the Fed
eral (I'overiiinent to "rtlievo itself from nil
responsibility for thn existence of Slavery,"
while it continues to net ns n National (ov
eminent, but neglects to discharge its rou
stitiitiounl obligation " to secure the blessings
of liberty " to " iho people of the I'. States,"
we cannot consent, by a co-operation willi
the Freo Democracy to concede by implica
tion the contrary assumption.
We hope ulso to see iho Free Democracy
define its position moro definitely on some
other (Subjects of .legislation, in which tlio
rights nnd interests nt Immunity nro virtually
concerned. Wo hold it the duty of civil
government to seek tlio administration of
eipial ji'sticf. to nil, and the enjoy mi-nt of
the etpial rights of ull ; to protect all persons
(irrespective of sex or color) in the enjoy,
incut of their political rights in the conse
quent nbolitiou of nil monopolies nnd class
legislation. We therefore feel impelled to
nuke n distinct Presidential nomination of
our own, without Iho slightest disrespect to
Iho distinguished gentlemen recently nomi
nated nt I'illsburiib.
GEItlUT SMITH then submitted the fol
lowing .Minority Report:
1st. Resolved, Tliut wo rejoice in the hope,
that the principles ot thn I ree Democracy
(ire substantially the principles of the Libtity
iid. Resolved, That, notwithstanding ihcio
is much moro truth than iiiitruih much
more to welcomo ond praise, limn to regret
nnd condemn in the Pittsburgh Platform, we,
nevertheless, regard it ns representing not the
masses of tlio Free Democracy, but tlie cau
tious and conservative handful, w ho fear that
damage rnny come from the unrestrained ut
terance mid Isild measure, of the generous,
lineidculaling mill radical masses.
lid. Resolved, Tliut iho Free Demncrncy
should loso un time lo purge its plailorm,
(which indeed is nut its plullurm) of till con
vessinus of shivery.
4th. Jit solved, Tlint with our fiiiih in the
Free Democracy nnd with our pleasure in
Iho advances, w hich tlio I'illsburg Platform
makes towords the true platform, it would be
ungenerous mid unwise lor the Lihurty Par
ly to army itself against the Free Demo
cracy. 5th. Rttohed, That thn Liberty Party will
mnka no nominations fur the approaching
flection; but that its members will support
tho nominations of the Free Democracy ns
far as they can conscientiously ito so, nnd
llint they will nominate for themselves in nil
ens" where tlie candidates lira such us they
cannot cuiwcienl'ionsly vote for.
Gilt, luaolvtd. That no mini interested in
thu principles mid imbued with tho spirit of
the Liberty I arty can consent lo vote lor a
candidate, who either luluiil of the possibil
ity of legalizing or who does not acknowl
edge the oblignlion of maintaining ull the
political rights of ull persons black or white,
.mile or female.
y ill. Resolved, Tlint wo do not disband the

nnd that we suspend it with ttie purpose of
speedily renewing it, provuleil that tlie free
Democruey shall tail to make its platform de

Tho author of tho whito slavo is one who has
already a well merited reputation for letters.
To tlint reputation this work docs no discredit.
Its stylo is cliantc and forcible. It abounds in
natural but thrilling incident, and will truch
the hearts of many, w here previous efforts havo
fulled to move with a proper ahhnrrcnco of
Amcriesn Slavery. It is in fact a history of
some of the secrets of thnt institution, unlmdicd
in the biography of ono of its victims. Some
of its readers will rccogniso in him an old ac
quaintance Archy Moore. To Arehy's histo

On Wednesday of Inst w eek, Mr. William
Swnney oddrcssed the colored people in thu
First Baptist Church in this place. Of tho
character or history of tho speaker we nre
ignorant. Hut prompted by his identifica
tion with the colored people, ho has evident
ly given inncli thought to their condition,
mid lo the mentis of its improvement. I In
thinks there is no reasonable ground tohopo
thnt Iho colored peoplo will ever riso in this
country, under tho rule of the present I'niiin
nnd Constitution. Uu contends that not only
has the government been administered fur
their oppression, but thai this result was con
templated ut its or;,tinizati)ii. With the
power in their hands we cannot expect tho
slaveholders voluntary to relinquish it. lie
distrusted any speedy results from tho ami-
slavery influence, because of its continual
tendency lo fraternize politically with slave
holders to secure some temporary or inciden
tal interests thus corrupting itself, uml de-
lealmg its own object.
For these reasons ho advised emigration,
to some country, where their political lights
should bo fully recognized.

COLUMBIANA, Sept 4, 1852.
Friend Ittlilor: Mr. Pillsbury, In speaking of
his meeting in Columbians, in apology for his
scurrilous revolutions and remarks agninst the
Free Soil Party, anya, I was induced to offer
thoss resolutions particularly on account of the
bigotry of some Free Soil men w ho used their
influence to keep ut out of the House and also
to keep people from our meetings."
If there was a tingle Free Soiler.known as such
who had used tuch Influence; lam unacquaint
ed with the fact, and have not conversed with
one w ho wat not astonished at the romark as
there wefo undoubtedly two froe toilers to ono
of his own clus, who wero in favor of going
into tho church. This was very ungenerous.
It wat a " Froe Boiler " who applied for the
house for tho afternoon meeting and w ho asked
for tho kcyt to open it, and it wat a Freo Soilcr
who wrote snd put up a major portion of tho
nut ices of the meeting. At to his remarks
above referred to, they wero as ho says, re
ceived kindly, snd quietly, though as evidently
evidenced by the "silent" expression of all deep
sympathy w as felt fbr tho Speaker. In this part
of his subject he did not pretend to reason his
ease, but simply lo pour out upon ut a masterly
tvrsde of ungrounded assertions and anathemas.
Whether any ono would havo replied or not,
there is little doubt of that, if opportunity had
offered of a moro enticing character, but the
Speaker look good caro to not tct down, or
cease talking, till he had dismissed the meeting
and ready to rctiro at a late hour. I hopo you
will do tho justice to givo thlt room in your
paper next week,
Yourt for truth and fnir play,
JOHN D. COPELAND.
Either J. D. Copeland is mistaken, or Mr.
Pillshtiry made some new tlevelopements of
character ut Columbiann. That he is un
mislakeabhi in his plainness nf 'speech, w e
know that in the estimation of thu subjects
of his denunciation, he should be thought
unreasonably severe, we eoiild well imagine,
did they leave it lo our imagination to de
cide. Hut that ho descended to the Use of
Ihu "scurrilous," we must lie permitted to
doubt, ns we think will most others, who
hnvo ever bad the pleasure of listening lo his
chaste language, to bis impressive thoughts,
mid to his dignified manner.
Thn idea that Mr. Pillsbury should attempt
to iluilgo discussion with our Columbiana
Freo Soilers, strikes us rather ludicrously.
We think it must havo been tho first timo ho
has played the coward of late. f he has
iloiui injustice to "some" of them no one w ill
he more ready lo hnvo justico done them
lliun himself. Our correspondent has failed
to show thai he had not "some" occasion for
his opinion whether it wns right or wrong.
We certainly hope ho was mistaken.

Notes from the Lecturing Field.
Immediately after Iho elose of our glorious
anniversary, in conformity with tlie arrange-
ments of the Ef. Committee, I started for Car-
rol co. to bo present at and aid irt the holding of
Convention snd Fnir st Lcesvil'e. 1 feel a
peculiar Interest in all that concerns tho cause of
progress In that tdacc. It w as tho teens of my
first Inbois in Ohio, where I first entered into
conflict with tho domon Slavery in the Church.
And from that time, more or lest, not a year
has passed In which I have not done something
to strengthen the handi of freedom, and weaken
tho power of oppression. It has become indeed
like home to me. At no time do I remember
feeling more tnlicitudo for tho causo there, thsn
prior to my recent visit, A communication had
appeared in ono of tho Anti-Slnvcry papers la
menting the inactivity and almost death of anti
slavery in that region. But when I arrived
there, I soon found, that instead nf the cause of
the slave having perished it wat a narrow big
oted sectnrisn feeling that with quite a number,
had departed and left the churches without
members and tho priesthood w ithout adherents.
The condition of tho anti-tlsvery cnuao will be
teen from tho notes which follow.
Oil Thursday evcnyig the scries of meeting)
was commenced by Joseph Barker and myself.
Our friend delivered ono of the ablest addroscs
I ever listened to ; enchaining tho nil tienco to
tho last by the cloquenco of his appeals and tho
compactness of hit logic. Mr. Ilarkcr tpnko
again on Friday afternoon and evening. Hit
address of the afternoon particularly a ukencd
tho indignation of a few of hit hearers, w ho
took caro not to be hcurd in his presence. Tho
tubject was thi certainty of titrcol lit (Ait great
came. Ho proceeded to demonstrate and unfold
the Law of Progress, which he did with g'ent
force ond beauty. He showed what the pititi
cut, relijioHt, domestic and itviit condition! of
mini formerly were. His tost book nf historical
reference was the Bible, from which ho showed
that the most terrihlc evils had passed away or
been weakened, and that from the past we hud
reason to hojic that the curse of American Slu
very would pass away forever.
Un Saturday and Sunday, II. C. Wright was
present, and with his umi.i1 ability ptrnd the
cause of freedom. The most interesting feature
was the fair. But tho notice was nlio.;"tlier
too short. In consequence of inability to pro.
cure speukers nt any convenient time It had to
bo held niter only three or four days notice.
which prevented the country from knowing
anything a'inut it till otter its close. Tho de
votion of the youn girls however did much
towards making the fair ull that could havo been
expected under tho most fnvorablo circumstan
ces. The church iu which the Juir was held
was beautifully decorated with evergreens in
terspersed with a large uuinlierof printed sheets
containing tho most radical auti-alavery senti
ments, in htrgo bold Icttom. Tht walls also
wero hung with similar inscriptions. These
wero prepared by Messrs. Meek und Crooks.
Every one of tlieso was a lecture of itself.
Tho tal.la under the wuving branches of tho
pine, was charmingly furnished, with a largo
variety of fancy and useful articles. At tho buck
nf which hung the most beautiful quilt I ever
saw, which hy tho way with thanki to the do
nors was purchased and presented to myself.
A dinner wat provided on Saturday nf the most
sumptuous character, tho proceeds of which
wcut to the fair.
If many who call themselves abolitionists
could havo seen tho devotion of the few young
persons in preparing for this effort I am suro
they woidd havo blushed at their own Uck of
energy. Night nnd day from the time they
heard of the time of holding their fair did they
work and toil with cheerfulness. I hope that
love f ir the slave will ever so animate them at
to had them to similar sacrifices. After defray-
ing their expenses which wero over twenty dol
lars they donated to tho Western Society firtij-

bolden them to commenco making prcyiirutiont

pEAB Marics ( Since leaving Salem, l nave
ncu meetings with various success, in Marlbo
T0't Rnltimore, Ilandnlph and Fowler. At Msrt

The excellent school thero was brilliantly rep
resented. My immediate success, wss.
usual with me in that t'lace. nothing. I made
no allusions, st least in any antagonistic Of of
fensive sense, to the Free Soil men. But my
earnest nppcal to thctu In behalf of the Bugle,
wat not received by tomo of them in any tuch
spirit as wat intended. One man, (something
In yean), taid he ' hoped the Free Soil men
would keep their money for better purposes'
snd then he charged us with being almost the
only hindrnnco to the speedy triumph of the
cause. Ho v at earnest beyond good nature,

a slave should never bo taken out of Haiti-

meant it. I a"-kcd him how ho could voto for
a president plcdgol to the law, and then refute
to help him execute it. This question wat an

not be hid, no matter where they ate. And
some noble spirits will be left after they sre gone.
Tho convention at Fowler wat one of the
most promising we havo held in the State. I
met our faithful friend, John F. Selby, there,
and we hud four larg-j and deeply interesting
meetings. A little New England free soil spite,
however, shut ut out of the unused Congrcga

urw and elegant meeting houso for tho Camp

our Convention. I fear from what we taw,
thai it is to ho dedicated to tho Spirit of Slave
ry as anon st it is completed. But ours wat a
large and interesting meeting at any rate you '
will heal good reports from there hi all proba
