The following is the preface which the auth

"In authorizing the circulation of this book
on the continent of Europe, the author has
only tho apology that tho love of humanity
is higher limn tho love of country."
That great mystery which iillChristion na

this book are exaggerated. Would tlmt this

Hut that it is nut a fiction, the proofs lie
bleeding in thousand of hearts they have
bucn attested by responding voices from al
most every sluvo stale, and from sluvo own

representations of this book. If more is
wanting, we can point the whole civilized
world to the written published SLAvr code
or the southkbn states where may tie
seen a calm clear legal crystallization and
arranireiiient of every enormity and every
injustice which despotic power can inflict
on the soul and body of a fellow-tnnn. Let
any man rend the laics, and he will never
doubt the results.

" It hns been said tlmt the slave population
of America is a degraded race, utterly tin
prepared for and iucnpnble of freedom, and
thai such characters as are deserilied in this
book are not to bo found among them.
Whatever tnny he true of the pure African
race, it is n fuct that the majority of the slave
population of America are a mixed men, in
whose veins is cil diluted the blood of their
oppressors, and characters such as that of
George Harris and Eliza are not tinfrrniicnt
iy found umong them. Lest the charucter
fif Undo Tom bo considered merely a cica
lion, with no typo in rculity, the author planes
beside of it tho following description of
favorite slave, from the published will of
Judge Upshur, Into Secretary of State, under
the administration ol 1 resident Jyler:
"I hereby emancipate and set free my
servant, David It ice, and direct my executors
to give bun one hundred dullars. 1 recom
mend him in the strongest manner to the
resiect, esteem and confidence, of any com
munity in which ho may happen to live.
He lias been my slave lor twenty-four years,
during nil which time he has been trusted
to every extent and in every respect. My
confidence in him lias been unbounded; his
relations to myself and futility have nlwnys
been such as to afford him daily opportun
ities to deceive and injure us, and yet he has
never been detected in any serious limit, nor
even in an unintentional breach of the de
corum of hia station. His intelligence is of
horn order ms sense ol r iu lit and proprr
ety correct, and even refined. 1 feel that he
is justly entitled to curry this certificate from
me in the new relations which he must now
form ; it is due to his long and most faithful
services, and to the sincere and steady
friendship which I hear him in the uninter
rupted and confidential intercourse of twen
ty-lour years, J have never given nor unci
occasion to give him one unpleasant word
1 know no man who has lewer luults or
more excellencies than he. '
' Such a character, of course is not com
mnn. either in fiction or in f.ict i but so much
of degradation, obloquy, and of en forced
vice bus linen heaped iiikii the head of the
unhappy African, that he is in justice enti
tied to '.he very fairest representation which
may consist with probability and fact.
It is not in utter despair, but in solemn
iiope and assurance, that the Ii lend or tree
dom may record the strugcle that now con
ulses America. It is the outcry of the de
mon of slavery, which has heard the voice
of coming Jesus, and is rending the noble

" It cannot be that so monstrous a solecism
can long exist in the bosom of a nation
which in all other respect Is the best expo

and the Celt, all mingle on terms of frater

play their characteristic excellence, and are
admit'.ed by her liberal laws to equal privi
leges everything there is tending to liberal
ize, humanize and elevate, and lor thot very
reason it is, that the contest with slavery
there grows every year more terrible. The
stream of human progress, widening, deep
ening, strengthening, from the confluent lor
ces of all nations, meets this barrier, behind
which is roncentrsted the ignorance, oppre
pression and cruelty of the daik ages -it
roars and foams, now at its base, but every
year it has been steadily rising, till at lost,
with a rush like Niagara, it will sweep the
In its commencement, slavery overspread
every state in the I'uion. The progress of
society has already emancipated a majority
of the states from its yoke, lit Kentucky,
Tennessee, Virginia, and Maryland, at differ
ent limes, strong movements have been made
for emancipation, movements enforced by
comparison of the iirnfrressive march of the
free stales, with the poverty and sterrility
induced by a system which in a few years
exhausts the resources of the soil without
the power of renewal. The time cannot be
distant when these states must emancipate
for self-preservation ) and if no new slave-
territory be added, the increase of slave
population will enforce measures of eman
cipation in the remainder.
"Here then is the point of the hatlle. (Un

point politicol parties fight and maneuver,

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE meets November 7th.
Advertisement—To Whigs and Democrats.
Gentlemen: A Friend from the "frontier
hns scut us an advertisement, which from
the right sort of sympathy for all concerned
we insert, and crave your indulgence while
we give you n word of exhortation in regard
thereto. We are prompted to this from tho
very singulur position which we have learned
from your papers your stump orators, and
your own lips, it is your intention to occupy.
From alt these sources we have repeatedly
learned, that you " never would catch a run
away mircer." This declaration you have
always occompanied with the equally posi
live one, that you would vote for a candidate
pledged to catch if possible, all who should
run away during four years from the 4th of
March next. The first Tuesday of Novem
ber, is the time when you intend to do up
this slave catching job by wholesale. In
this you show no di-pos ition to shrink. ISut
on the contrary you are especially ambitious
that your condidute should obtuin the job and
your neighbor's be laved from the ignominy.
That you should refuso to do that personally,
which you are so anxious to do by your agent,
is a mystery to us. You will not thereby
escape any responsibility and our exhorta
tion is to consistency. Here is a chniicc.
See the advertisement below. Turn out,
try your hand at il yoursolf, and at least,
catch and return one uigger before the elec
tion, und then you will fully understand
what kind of a job you are imposing upon
the distinguished Gcneruls fur whom you
To tie fronk with you, Gentlemen Whigs,
it don't seem to us a hit fair, for you to set
General Scott At this business by wholesale,
and force upon him its monopoly for four
long years, and at the same lime assure us
that the General has the same abhorrence of
the work that you have yourselves. It don't
look magnanimous to force him to do for
you a job w ith which you won't defile your
own hands. It is a poor reward for 40 years
of service, years in which you say he has
jeoparded his life like a hero, and poured out
his blood like martyr, for yourselves and
your country. Shame on you 1 to appoint
him now with his hoory head, which should
be hia crown of glory, to a work which you
scorn to perform. Turn out then if you would
have for your own character and consistent
reputation if you would be thought true
whiga "good citizens" and loyal friends
of the union, and help catch this "Boy Bob."
To be sure the teward would be small divi
ded among you all, but then the honor of
hunting and bagging such bouncing game.
Two hundred pounds ! Just think of iL
It will muke a tale the recitul of which shall
thrill with intensest interest the hearts of
your children. Whether with pride or
shame, time shall tell. Il loo will somewhat
dejiend upon the manner lu which you ed
ucate them by your Tote, and the circum
stances with which it shall surround them,
And you too, Gentlemen Democrats, lend
a hand) who csn tell but this hunt shall de
cide the presidential race. And besides,
whether you catch him or not, it will give
comfort to your afflicted southern brother.
Imitate the godlike Daniel, and learn to per
form an unpleasant duty with alacrity.
Don't be discouraged hy the neglect which
this great exemplar bus received therefor,
from the Americuo people. Remember that
virtue is its own reward. And also that in
the estimation of the rulers of this nation,
and of your party In particular, that slave
catching is the most exalted of virtues.
True your candidate unlike him of the
Whigs, has no repugnance to the job. It is
in accordance with his judgment, yet you
may reasonably hop to encourage him to
greater alacrity, by your personal example.
Thus will the bonds of the I'uion be more
Filially, Gentlemen of both parties, per
mit us to tell you, we don't think it honor
able in you, (and your southern allies ore of
our opinion,) to appoint General Pierce, or
or General Scott, to this work, and then re
fuse your personal cooperation. Be men.
If you like this hunting of men, go at it in
day light, and above board. The law is with
you. If you don't like it, and wont person
ally aid in it, don't appoint the president as
your agent to do it, and delegnte the whole
government to the work drop your ballots
for Tierce and Scott. They will leave a
blister on your conscience, if you have any,
and a stain upon your name. Vote for bet
ter men, and a more honorable business, or
slay at home.
As to Mr. Dunicl Thatcher, he certainly
will he under obligation to us for the inser
tion of his advertisement. It will likely full
into the hands of some who have seen, or
will he likely to see the said " Holi. For
what they may do in the premises, after
having seen him, of cotirso wo cun't be re
sponsible. We should add that appended to Mr.
Thatcher's advertisement, was also one for
another article of merchandise; viz: a "Bay
Horse," which we are informed there is some
probability wulked ofT in company with
" Bob." Now to us, ibis close companion
ship is not at all wonderful. The fellow
feeling that they were property, doubtless
made them wouderous kind. "Bob" and
the " liny" are both to be found on the sume
tax list, both are held and reputed to be
"chattels, personal to ALL intents, construc
tions and purposes whatsoever." Of course
therefore neither can be supposed to posses
morul character, or to hnve perpetrated upon
the other anything like theft. If this sliull
be doubted, we ulTinn that it doe not at all
appear, from the well established principle
of law aforesaid, or from accompanying
facts, whether tbe " Buy " stole " Hub," or
Bob" Hole the " Buy ;" or whether indeed
they reciprocally stole each other. The ad
vertisement doe intimate, though not very
confidently, tlmt "Bob" took the "Bay."
But we confess to a doubt. Indeed we are
quite sure il was otherwise, if indeed they
went in company at all. The evidence that
will decide this latter fact, will also unques
tionably prove that the " Buy " took " Bob."
And if any attempt shall hereafter be made
to establish the personality of either of the
escaping chattels, for purposes of justice,
we hope to be called in "Bob's" defence,
and to aid in putting the saddle on the right
Our neglect to insert the advertisement of
w the Buy," ia not from any lack of sy mpathy
with the looser thereof, but simply because
the escape of " the Buy " can have nojnflu-
ence upon the Presidential election, while
that of " Bob," is very iiititnutely mixed up

Episcopal Church. This body of incor
ruptible and tinniiltigated huiikerism held
it annuul convention in New York, com
mencing on the 2d iiist. Judge Jay a he
hud often done before, attempted to secure
a recognition of the ecclesiasticul rights of a
colored Epiicopul Church in the city. After
silencing him, which occasioned some little
flurry, they passed on, ruling out the propo
sition without any further attention. Thus
regaining their accustomed dignity and com
posure. Disobaceful. While m Whig speaker
was addressing an audience lust week iu New
Lisbon, stone was hurled at him through
window and shutters; fortunately iu force
was o spent that It did no harm.
Elections. Next Tuesday ia the State
Election. Three, week from thence, Tues
day Nov. 3d i th day of th Presidential
Concerts in Salem-Decorum.
8ince our last two musical concerts havs been
given in Salem by Messrs. FUckner a: Hopkins.
Their music wss principally Instrumental, per
formed on the Violin and Melodeon, on both or
which, they are accomplished performers. Mr.
F. sung sovcral ballads in good stylo. Ho is a
youth totally blind.of intelligent, ploaannt coun
tenance and modost gentlemanly demeanor.
These gentlemen justly challenge the attention
or the community, not for the misfortune cf th
one but as scientific musicians, who havs har
mony in thoir souls, sr.d esn mnks It play upon
their fingers' ends. They go from hero to New
Lisbon snd Wcllsville.
That they were able to extoit music, from
voice or instrument, surrounded by tho Inhar
monious elements of the last evening, ss to us a
marvel. On ono band was a company of boys
whispering and applauding in icoion and out or
season, just for tho sake or the sport. Some
persons older, selected the time when tho per
formers were in the midst or a most lovely or
touching strain, to give utterance to their good
tasto and nice sense or propriety, by loud con
versation or by walking across the hall to make
their exit. While several others, enthusiastic
devotees or letters, placed themselves in front
of both audienco and musicians and industrious
applied themselves to the reading or newspa
pers. A very gratifying compliment no doubt
to the poi formers. As to tho accompanying
rattlo or their newspapers, It being altogether a
volunteer performance -not put down in the
programme tho audienco were not prcpnrcd
to admiro it, though if we may bo the judge,
they did, with truo acnsibility, appreciate it, as
a breach or decorum towatds all patties.

At this time, when tho slavery question is the

radical truths and radical measures in regard
thereto, should bo clearly presented snd forci
bly urged. To do this nono aro moro compe

aro promised on that occasion. In tho salva

and enterprising population or Michigan are

His subject was Individual Responsibility, a
very fortunuto selection, as many or us behave
as though there was no such thing. Tho Gov
ernment wss declared not to be the thing it
should be, snd to asertain who wns to blstne
for this, it becamo necessary to hunt the gov
ernment. Ha first took us to the White House,
the President being the biggest toad in the
puddle but tho president did not set up any
higher claim than that or servsnt or the peo
ple From there wo went to tho Senate Cham
ber, but that august body wcro in the employ
or others. In hopes or finding it with that
portion or Legislators, fresh from the people,
we went into tho Hail or Representatives, but
with no better success and finally, as the
last likely placo for it, we went to the Supreme
Court, but liko tho fka of which you havs no
doubt heard, it wns not there. The query
as, hero is it f Well, my friends, said he,
I can tell you : It is right before me now you
are really and truly the governtmcnt ; each snd
every one or you is tho government, and thero
Is no other; and now having found the govern
ment, I proposo to talk to it a while.
Hero ho iavo duo nntico that ho had not
enmo to flatter us. Could not tell of any
thing wo had dine particularly deserving or
praise. Did not come to tell to us how bnd
the ponplc wcie in Virginia, but to tell us how
bad we aro in Ohio : In short to tell the gov
ernment before him, what it had done, is now
doing, and should do, and could do, if it would
only so decide.
Ho pointed out to us how we had annexed
Texas, passed tho rugitivo slave law, and aro
about to elect a President who dcclnrcs it a fi
nality, and that all agitation should be prohib
ited for lbs future
In speaking of annexation he whished to be
understood as favoring it, when it comes in ss
free territory. I would bo willing, said he, to
annex anything, even the frozen region round
Uuflins Hay, ir it comes In as freo territory ; I
would not be willing to take tho Garden or
Eden as it came forth from tho hand or Al
mighty God, if ourscd with sluvcry.
In connection with this subject ho had oc
casion to read public documents. They wero
mostly introduced by some such observation
si this, I will just read what you said, ss you
may havr forgotten it ; and then would coir.o
an extract or secretary Forsj tho's letters, or
some official document, for which as indiviuals
we considered ourselves in no wsy responsible.
The fugitive law received no mercy at his
hands. So great ia hia abhorance or it, that I
vorily believe ho would step forward in aid of
Daniel Webster ir they w ore to undcrtuka to
carry him back to slavery, only for tho con
sciousness that there is no slavery back of
where ho is, to carry him to. In reviewing
this law ho mado a comparison in which tho
word Hell occurcd, but si that is a bad word
and as I have almost quit swearing, I wilt not
try to recall it. The outrageous sentiments
contained in tho Pierce and Scott platforms,
in reference to sgitation, camo very near
agitating both speaker and government. Agi
tation, said he, why wo have it all around us I
In the physical world, agitation and life, stag
nation and deuth ; so in the moral world, agi
tation and purity, stagnation and polution.
But tho resolution carried its antidote with It,
being itself tl.o most exciting agitator. Why,
tell the people they thull not, and they tci'tf."
Tho oldest man in the assembly, ir born in the
county and had never left, or felt a desire to,
would Icavo before night, or break his neck In
sn effort to leave, if told ho ihould not. But
then they have promised to ' resist" and "dis
countenance" all efforts at agitation, whonovcr,
wherover, or however mado. Now how will
they help it. Whenever means now, wherever
moans here, and however means tho best
way I can.
His illustrations by anccdoto and fable, wcro
singularly apt, and sometimes fresh enough to
have been conceived at the time. To show how
prona we were to wait, and see what others
will do, instead or going to work snd doing
ourselves, he related tho following faulo. It
occurred to some one, that it would msko a

would hollo a loud a they could at ono and

To sit the friends or Humanity and Liberty,
throughout tho State :
You are hereby most earnestly desired and.
requested to assemble in Convention at Ad
rian, on Satvudat and Scnuay, tub Kith
and 17th or October, next", to consult upon
the best means for ridding the Nation or tho
curso and erimo or Slavery,.
Never in our whole history as a people, hnvo
the friends and advocates of Freedom and Jus
tice, been so loudly called upon for fidelity to
principle, and boldness snd determination ia
action, as at present. Tho demons or Slavery
are becoming moro and moro linrious and
outrageous on tho ono hand, and th baseness
snd servility or the grcst political parties, more
shameless and infamous on tho other.
Tho Church, too, that ought ever to be first
and foremost in attacking and overthrow, ing
tho great system of wickeducas and wrong. Is in
numberless instances, even st tho North, tame-.
Iy bowing to tho unrighteous spirit or oppres-.
sion snd lyrany, snd torturing the pages or the
New Testament into iu support. A Church of
such a character, should bo exposed In all Its
And moro then all, tho condition or the Slave,
plundered and itnbruted, shut up from the
light or education snd the comfoits or truo re
ligion, robbed or tho responsibilities and felici
ties or tho family relation, cast down to tho
same level with four footed beasts, labeled ss
property and entcrcrcd on tho ledger as such,
thus doomed to a life of dreariness and despair,
and to a death without hope, this nlono pressed
on our consideration, as never beforo by tho
spirit of inquiry now abroad, should rouse every
one or us to a firmness of resolve, and boldness
of deed becoming the moincntoumess of tho
eause, and our own relation to tho Slave, and.
responsibility to God.
The meeting will probaby be held In Odd
Follows Hull, snd will commence on Saturday
the 10th, at ton o'clock in the morning. Let
no trifling consideration keep any true friend
or Freedom from attending this most impobtaxt
Asti-Slavkkt Convention, ever hold in Mich
igan. The hospitalities or the place will be
freely extended, aa for as possiblo, to all stran
gers from a distance.
Parker Pillsbury or Boston, Charlea and
Joscphino Grilling or Ohio, and probably Jas.
W. Wtlker and L. A. Hine or Ohio will be
present to address tho Convention.

Toon Devils. A Whig Stumper in Now
Lisbon, divii'es politicals as follows;
The Whigs ar God's poor,
Tho Democrats the Devil's poor, and
Tho Freo Sailers, are Poor Devils.
The Whigs snd Democrats aro poor enough,
wo all know, else they would not sill them
selves so cheaply. They both belong to tho
Devil, however, if wo admit the scripture rule ;
lot ' his works they do." Freo Soilors may
be poor devils. Wo hopo they are. It was
probably designed as a compliment being
negitive way of saying they are very good
Mr. L. A. Hine, in his last letter to th Non
pareil, reforing to a pamphlet in a previous let
ter which we published last week, rays :
" In ono or my previous letters I stated in
reference to my nomination for Congress by th
Freo Democracy, that I was not acting with
any party. I see it stated in soma papers that
I am not acting with that party, leaving the In
ference that I am acting with some other party,
I protest against that inference. While I can
not consent to be considered a partizan or sec
tarian in any sense of the terms, I would not
hsvo any ono suspoct that any rospect could be
shown by one who claims to bo a thorough
radical to eithor of the parties thut hns adopted
"Finality" for Its rallying cry I Finality .'
No more sgitation of human rights, of des
potism I God savo us I In this middlo of the
nineteenth century whon agitation is tho soul of
progress, we hsvo the old Finality or Medcs
and Persians The old Fnality or Draco's sys.
tern, which placed a halter about the neck of
him who dared to propose an aniondment of
law the old Finality of Edward, who sent
his executioners to Wales to chop off the heads
or the bard who mad the hills and valley
echo with their songs of liberty, which kept
th people in open resistance to despotio law 1 1
