Occasionally a subscriber takes leave of us
with less ceremony or politeness than we

Death of Daniel Webster.
Mr. Webster died at hit rosidenoe in Marsh
field at 3 o'clock, on Sunday morning last. The
event had been expoctcd from tho Friday pro
vious and feared for a much a longer period.
Mr. Webster has long had the reputation,
how justly we will not say, of the master intcl
lect of tho age. Hit eloquence hat often pro
duced a most profound impression and may
havo turned tho tide of our national affuirt, on
important measures. Mr. Webster's admirers
were most hearty, enthusiastio and devoted, but
he lacked tho genius to attach to himself the
pcoplo and thus secure the ends he sought. IIo
schemed timorously, and compromised without
principlo and thus tignally failed. Had he
heroically dushed forward to win or perish, hit
boldness would have secured the admiration of
thousands, who now coldly assout to his intel
lectual superiority or turn in disgust from his
moral cowardice. The infamous legislation of
the last two years, owes Its existence to his de
cision to go with the strong tgaintt the right.
His 7th of March speech was the pivot on which
turned tho tide of legislation against tho Wilmot
proviso and in favor of tho fugitive slave law.
It ia a melancholy record for tho pen of history,
that Calhoun and Clay and Wobster, tho three
mot renowned Sonators of our country and the
our country and the
ae, devoted thoir latost and Brightest efforts to
tho rxtonsioii and perpetuation of human bond
age. Lot the youth of our land who are prompted
by impulses of ambition rcmcmbor this, and at
Ihey would leavo a namo which posterity ahull
honor, let them stand by justice, though it be
tt the cott of prctcnt sacrifice
JJaniol cbstcr has passod away, and yot
the nation which ha been proud before the
world of hit intolloot and his oloquence, will be
penetrated with no profound sorrow, for in their
hearts the people know he bat eminently helped
to fix upon the nation atrocious guilt, and inef
faceable infamy. They have pronounced hit
oondomnation while the groat inase of them
atill walk in the way of hia sin.

Michigan State Convention.
We omit several articles to day to make room
for the cheering and important communications
from Michigan. The Convention Wat large,
and all, and more than could have been ex
pected. The time of the Convention and of the
labors of our friendt In Michigan hat bcon in
tome respects unfavorable for the most success
ful effort of moral anti slavery. Tho whirlwind
of partizan effort, which just now like a blast
ing sirocco, la sweeping over the land, leads men
to despiso the truth, by turning a deaf ear to its
voice and utterly disregarding its most solemn
injunctions. True, the character of tho present

" " ' " 1 l ' l n " 1
question of freedom, has in some small measure
counteracted this evil but still it has remained
a vast obstnelo In tho way of our effort. But
liko tried and faithful soldiers of freedom as
they are, our anti-slavery lecturers havo faced
obstacles and dilliculties, in this case, with nio.'t
Mr. Urifling't sickness has been a serious
embarrassment to tho plant of our agents, as
well at a disappointment to tho Michigan
fiicnds, as it withdrew him altogether, and in
part, Mrs. Grilling also from tho field. In con
sequence Mr. rillsbury's labors were greatly
augmented. But ho has every reason to be of
good cheer at tho manner of their termination.
At all events, we arc. A Friend writing from
there toys : "Mr. I'illsbury has labored with all
his might and with much success. Tho radical
abolitionists liko him much." And so they
should. Our correspondent, might doubtless
have added, that pro-slavery conservatism hated
him most cordially. If not, it must bo mate
rially different in Michigan, from sonio other
places we know of. Andordinarily.pro-slarrry
hato it quite ts high an order of commendation
of fidelity at anti-slavery love.
Tho resolutions embodying tho principles of
tho Convention, show that tho abolitioniits nl
Michigan have not entered this wurfuro without
counting the cost. They understand tho power
and resources of their enemy, and propose such
measures as general experience, common sense,
and moral principlo unito to dictate. They are
no triflcrs to amuso themselves and others with
falto or comparatively unimportant (though
may be partially truthful) issues. They strike
st jnifry, not at its adjuncts or its accidents.
Thoy aro fearlessly heroic, for they assault
without hope or promise of quarter, thoc over
shadowing and thoroughly manned bulwarks
of slavery the government and the church.
Tho powers of slavery arc concentrated within
their walls there should tho assault be mode.
God speed them in it. If aught within our
power thcro is that can be done, our Buelc notes
shall cheer them in tho fight. It is a war with
principalities and powers, with spiritual t'nd
governmental wickedness in high places, and
no man's or woman's aid will be despised or go
V congratulate our friendt in Michigsa in
tbair organisation. Tbeit past history gfrss
good eviCenee of their future efficiency. And
we hope the coming year will tee great progreai
mado U abolitionlsing the State.
When our anti-slavery politicians get through
their election and get time to read and think of
them, wo intend to republish these Michigan
resolutions, and call their attention to them,
for we aro turo they aro worthy of moro atten
tion than they will give them now.

The Course of Justice.
During the last week, a miseriiblo victim
of intemperance, was murdered by his
drunken companions in PittHhuigh. Tlie
fatal afluir occurred in tho house of Jano
Taylor, and one of her sons was committed
to prison charged with participating in the
crime. Subsequently the mother ami her
three remaining sons, comprising her whole
fumily, in dcfuult of bail, to appear 08 wit
ncsses against the accused ton and brother,
were also committed to juil. One of the
ons, a boy of only ttn yeart of aet. This
mny he civilization, justice and humanity
but it sounds to us very much like envngcism
and cruelty. To imprison a whole fumily
for audi a purioso we had never thought of
as being poosible. They mny he ignorant
and vicious; but this is surely no wny to re
form them, especially that youth of so tender
age. Is it possible that the civilization uud
humanity of the nineteenth century can find
no better wny than this, for the adminisira
lion of justice! Thut theso persona should
be incarcerated with condemned fellons be
cause they are supposed to be unintentionally
cogniBont of the alleged offence of their rcl
alive and his associate ! Even admitting, at
ia alleged, thut hanging, like sluvery, is "a
divine inetitution," we should certainly be
inclined to let this one victim escape, rather
than doom his whole family to this fullon's
chool, to be harassed by weeks, purhapa
months of imprisonment, with the terrible
thought that it was all to compell them to
become accessory to the ignominious pun
ishment of their relutive,
We kuow that in our cities, especially in
our sea porta, Individuols strangers are
often imprisoned for months, to secure their
attendance as witnesses. But it seems to us
an outrage upon personal liberty and justice,
for which no resulting good can ordinarily
compensate. It is lime that it was met with
the remouttranca of all the humane.
Michigan State Anti-Slavery Convention.
Dr.AB Mahius: V'o have just been holding a
State Anti-Slavery Convention in Michigan.
It has equaled in interest and numbers the
highest expectations and hopes we had cher
ished. The woik of regenerating the State
had been well commenced, by tho labors of
James W. Walker and others particularly by
Mr. Walker. It hat bten still further prosecuted
by the short mission of the QrifHngs and my
self) and tho Stato Convention, I trust has tei
(he came np for iltclf. Thcro is no reason why
Michigan should not hereafter be known and re
cognized as fully enlisted in, and committed to
the cause of genuine, radical anti-slavery.
The convention held or. Suturday and Sunday.
It was in the Odd Fellow's Hall, hero in Adrian.
The interest continued to deepen in intensity,
to tho close. The resolutions, as you will see,
were of tho most thorough character. Tho
defenco of them by Jmcphine Grilling, James
Walker, and others, seemed sufficient to tho
audience, and every one of them wa adopted
with great unanimity, if not unanimously.
As there is at proscnt no State organization
In Michigan, tho Convention took measures for
commissioning a " Stute Central Committee,"
to tako tho supervision, somewhat, of the
movement in the eauso for tho ensuing year.
A Committee of twenty of tho tried and truo
men and omen in tho enterprise, wat elected,
(a quorum of whom reside in or near Adrian),
who will u, t towards this State, in tho samo
capacity and relation of tho Executive Com
mittee of tho Western Anti-Slavery Society
towards the field of its operations. And tho
Resolution for raising tho committee, provides
that it "act a fur at possible, in auxiliarijship Kith
the Western ami American Anti-Klnirry Societies."
So in effect, there it now a State organization,
auxiliary to tho l'arcnt Anti-Slavery Society.
And truer or more effective helpers in tho work,
can no where be found.
The Causa in tho Stato it indebted much to
tho different qualitict and degrees of Friendt
or Quakers ; who have at length ripened into
w lint is now known as tho " Michigan Yearly
Meeting of l'rogrcssivo Friends." They havo
built their platform broad enough for Universal
Humanity, and laid in extra plank enough,
"for the rest of mankind," as fnst as they shall
bo born. Tho "Yearly mcccting" was noth
ing more nor lest than a thorough-going Re
formatory Convention- The ' Book of I)ici
plino" was consulted, just as much as was tho
almanac of year before Inst.
We find in Michigan, several young men and
women, who might bo employed to grcut ad
vantage to themselvct and others, as Lecturers.
Thcro aro among tho young Frogressivo

ncss of Mr. Grilling, has Dccn singularly un
fortunate. Mrs. Grilling hat been constantly
withdrawn most of tho timo from the field, and
tho wholo work has rested on me. She gave
us most invaluablo aid at tho Convention, and so
did James Walker on the lost day. Tho storm
on tho luko prevented his earlier arrival.
Under tho circumstances, wo think that wo
have dono all that could bo expected. Tho
Convention has been delightful, tho audiences
lurgo and remarkably respectful and attentive,
and tho hospitality of tho people, above all

Letter from J. F. Selby.
BROOKFIELD, Oct, 25,1852.
Brotbkr Maimvs: My last left me at Youngs
town, aince which time I held mcctinga at Aut
tintown, Boardman, and Lowcllvillo. When I
arrived at tho placo last named, I learned that
two meeting wore appointed for the evening
one Anti-slavery and the other Freo Soil.
After counteling with friends of both parties,
It was agrcod to havo but ono meetinrr. which
wa held In the Free I'rcs. Meeting house. The
gentleman whom tho Free Soilors expected to
address them failed lo come, and I was invited
to spesk which I did at well aa I could under
circumstancct at I wat quite tick at the timo.
The meeting passed pleasantly, a littlo Interrup
tion by a drunken man, and tooie would-be
men and boys excepted.
But all so far as I could judgo were plcoscd,
and edified. At tht closo of the lecture, a friend
enquired of tho "turn-key" if tho house could
bo occupied by us on tho next day, (Sunday)
to which ho replied that he "thought thcro
would bo no objection" he went and consulted
the trustee, and returned sn) Ing thut tho
houso could not he had. So we appointed tho
meeting for tho "Lord's Day" in the school
houso just across the alley from the other
and thcro wo met ami held our mect'ng tho
meeting houso standing unoccupied ull the
Iho Free Presbyterians left the fellowship of
tho old school, on account of her connexion
with slavery, so they sny. I was there ibr tho
very purposo of laboring w ith those reformers,
to bring into diaroputo the flare-holding reli
gion which they themselves refused to fellow
ship. Why did they refuse the uso of their
houso? Do they feel that there i rottenness
at homo or aro they not sincere in their pre
tensions to anti-slavery ; or do they, like others,
mulco the sect the great object of their efforts
Do they not know thnt tho Church is but a
mrom to bo used for the accomplishment of tho
end, viz: tho redemption of men. How per
fectly ridiculous it is, for people professing to
bo 'simon puro' anti-sluvery ; and yet, from a
narrowness of chnrity, or else of interest, they
lock up their places of worship, lest at any
time, tho speaker might not believe every thing
which they thin'x to be orthuilor. ScvturianiMn
is more in tho wny of tho deliverance of the
slave, than all tho constitutions and laws of the
country. I hope that this cursing spirit may
oon disappear from among anti-sluvery people.
I priy, thut tho anti-slavery friends will avoid
that kind of party spirit which would lead them
to care moro for tho Society thnn for tho end for
which it has its existence, i. e. the freedom of
tho slave. Tho timo has fully coino when all
anti-slavery people, whutevcr may bo their
modo of action, should strike slurenj, ami not one
Tho voting abolitionists aro not equally as
bad, if not considerably worse, than the hunker
Whigs and patent Democrats they are doing
much to agitata both "in Congress and out of
it," may their "pathway ahine more and more
unto the perfect day." '
Tho discussion of tho Bihlo question In con
nection with Anti-Sluvery, I think unnecessary
and injurious and whilo I mny not be uble to
rcconcilo those passages usually quoted by Mr.
Barker, and others, w ith freedom, I am sure that
the great weight of testimony in the Bible, can
never bo reconciled with slavery. But I acck
no controversy on tho subject.
I had meeting last week at MiUbro'ok on
Sunday and Wednesday had good meetings.
I came to this pluco last Saturduy and lectured
in tho Methodist mectinghouso in tho evening
had a good timo hnd meeting yesterduy

their holy religion was destroyed on last oven
