public auction, or drives him with its whip
of twisted scorpions, nil the rest of the week,
to unpaid anil unpitied toil. It denies the
felicities of the family relation, and trends

To The Friends of Free Discussion.
The undersigned solicitous for the ad
vancement of tho cnuse of Truth and Hu
manity, hereby invite all who are friendly to
free discussion, to nttctid a Convention to tio
held at Salem, Ohio, on Saturday, Sunday

AND INFLL'F.XCi: OF TIIK JKU ISlI
AM) CHRISTIAN SCRIPTIRKS.
This invitation is not given to any particu
lar class of Philosophers, Theologians or
Thinkers, but is in good faith, extended to
all who feel an interest in tha examination
of tho questions nbovo stated. Thero me
many who believe tlmt a supernatural Reve
lation has been given to man ; many others
who deny this, ami a large number who are
afflicted with perplexing doubts trembling
between the silent skepticism of their renson
and the leor of absolute denial. In issuing
a call for a Convention wo have in view tho
correction of error by which party soever
entertained, nud the relief of those who stand
between doubt nud I'cur from their enibairus
Soino tuny have no doubt tint the Jewish
and Christian Scriptures have subserved an
important end, and yet believe that their
mission is nearly completed and must be
siqicrceded by a new dispensation ; soma
may believe that their influence bag been
prejudicial in every respect, and that they
buve been a curse rather than a blessing to
mankind, others inny believe them a perfect
record of tho Divine will to man gootl in
thu pnst and for nil time to come; and others
still inny deny the plennry inspiration of thu
llihlo, discarding much of the Old Testn
ment, nnd receiving must or nil of tha New.
Still such diversity of opinion instead of
prejudicing thu Interest und good results
which ought to attend such a Convention,
will rather tend to increase its interest nnd
enhance ils value to tho cause of Truth.
Doubtless a free interchange of thought is
tho best mode of exciting inquiry nud of ar
riving nt thu Truth.
Ho who has a Truth and keeps it,
Keeps what not to him belongs;
But performs a selllsh action
And his fellow mortul wrongs,"
We invite, therefore, nil who feel an Inte
rest in this question, without distinction of
sex, color, sect, or pnrty, lo como together,
that we may sit down liko brethren in a
communion before tho altar of intellecliiul
and spiritual Freedom.
