The four months party struggle Tor pine on J
power i it in end. The Whigs are ilofcalcil, pro
bably with n overwhelming rout. Freedom has
loit nothing by the defeat. Slavery had (ho pow
er of enforcing her will alike over both parties.
Every right-minded and light-hearted freeman
car. feci only regret, not that the Whigs are de
feated, but that tho Democrats are successful.
Under the pliant temper and experienced ser
vility of General Tierce, tho rule of slavehold
ers will be absolute, for tho next four year.
Their will is to he done, not 11 iu heaven above,"
but through all this eaith beneath, so far as
their reckless will and tho subserviency of
the government csn mutually accomplish it.
T secure their iuccoss, they openly cast
way all truth, principle and justice. Thry
were the unconcealed and uncompromising ad
vocate of despotism, to w hich they ark now
lodged tlicmselvrs willing vassals. Willing,
' net ly to -wear the ynko themselves, but
hopelessly ta fix it upon millions of others now
living, and upon tho Increasing millions of their
Tho Whigs stultifying themselves by accept
ing the platform and then professing anti-sln-lavery
principles, secured for themselves the
brand of hypocriey in one section of tho Union,
without attaining the confidence of the oilier.
Her Mens of truth, liberty, and justice, they nro
righteously overthrown, l'he Whigs had bet
ter disband. Success in obtaining tho owcr of
the government is tshut thry scik. 'Ibis, to
them, is hopeless. TI.ey hove not tho elements
of success within their organization. So dis
perato a vcntiiro as the ctcrnixing of slavery
with freedom, demands a henven, earth and
bell defying boldness iu villainy, to which Whig
genius it utterly inadequate, however willing
may bo its heart. That heart-willingness no
one will question, who Las witnessed the dia
bolistu of tho party during tho present cam
paign. The cowardly conservatism of tho whig
party always keeps it behind hand in its bids
for jobs of daring vilinnr, while its native hy
pocriey leads it to mako fulse professions to the
North, snd thus looses it reward at the South.
We do much desire that tho party may learn
wisdom by its calamity, hut we fear its stolidity
will be an over match for its lesson.
The Free Soilrrs grnrrully, and in Northern
Ohio especially, have labored with most un
tiring and htruiu xcal. The election of Wudo and
Uiddings has been to them a pood reward, and
to freedom a glorious triumph. What the num
ber of their votes may bo lor Hair, we do not
know, and wo caro much less than they, wheth
er they be many or few, tho great truths they
have preached, tho important facta they have
apread before tho community, is good seed for
freedom. When tho rancor of party spirit has pas
ed.awsy, it will bring forth fruit which shall
ripen to a harvest. They hare evidently felt
th cinbarriisuiciit under whieh thry haro la
bored in consequence of tl.o concessions of their
pUtforni to slavery, nnd we aro not without
hope thut.thcy will lesrn w isdom beforo they
build another, and make their position impreg
nable and unastnilublo by refusing all conies
sions to slavery within the states, as well as in
the general government. Let them assault and
defy slarery everywhere, even as tho slave
holders assault and defy liberty.
We repeat, they have labored nobly and
faithfully in their position, and whatever the
ballot box may deeidr, so fur ss thry have been
the preachers of righteousness, thry are the
screenful parly, and time will so deeido.

It seems that Mr. Iligginsnn has hrcu call-

chosen lo install liimsellj without Iho aid of

ihiftinii hiiforu tm is bin sermon. Tho lid-
lowing extract will give the author's iev of
the need nnd character of church orgnnin
lion. A topic of nu smiill interest to niuny
of our readers.
As being nn nrg-nnizniinii fiir religious pur
poses, wh vcnluii) lo call our institution a
church. And yet it is one of our tiiiarilics
thai we have no technical eliiiri hmemlier
tdiip. We ih) not meet iih partakers of uny
Iraililioiiary rite, except llm ritu of public
worship. The exclusive privileges of church
miimlieiM linvu hmu seemed to many lo bu n
premium on niulaciiy nml vanity, mid n ilis
coiii'iigemeul Iu hiimbhi hiul timid virtue. -
It is mlmiiieil by n recent and aide Orthodox
writer that " llm homiilariea between thu
church mid the woil.l are rapidly failing n way.
Large numbers of Ihn world aro coming lo
net on principle which were Ibi'ineily pecu
liar to thu church: w hile it is to he feared that
n large body of ihu church is fiist advancing
ill a spiiit and in practices that belong only
In thu world. If Ibis process goes on (con
liiineM lh writer) eru long there may hit line
og-.iii'Z'ilioiis, bused on fur stronger iilliuilies
than now unite the thu Christiuu prolensjis
ill their ueclesiaslienl organizations. "
II is lime I lint these distinctions should pans
away. For one I perceive no practical ilif
ferenco between the church, iu Iho usual
sense, nnd tho. world. If I were lo hear that
I was to res'ulu ill Iho Bumii house with two
persons, the ono u church member, nnd iho
other nil atheist, I should hardly know from
which lo expect most honesty or 11101 kinil
ncs. And 1 once knew a euse in a small
low n where n man W'ho bud not entered a
church for four years w as appointed as chair
man of the liiiH.nl of Assessors, 011 the avow
ed ground that lie was the only mini in town
honest enough for that rather trying position.
Ihu mi for n, it is 1 suppose our effort lo
obtain such n " new orguniz ilion " na is pre
dicted by tho orthodox writer whom I have
quoted. Such nu organization, wo claim,
uiny justly cull itself n church, since its nim
is to provide liir religious worship nnd in
struction. Ami although culled 11 church I
see no reason w hy tho most zealous reform
er ihotild object to it. For every abolitionist
(lor instnnce) beliove in organizations to
preach nnti-nluvei y li ulh; nnd does not object,
111 thut connection, to prayer, scripture, ser
111011, or even Hilary. At tho uatno lime no
nuoliiinnist pretend thut anti-slavery until
rmhrares the wholrt of tlin gospel. Ycf,
enlarge the nrentiintion stillietetilly to take 111
1 1 in rest, nml it becomes a church.
In regard to forms I may aiv tlint tho Sun
day ritual, in tint hand of Protestants bus
resolved itself into the simplest elemenlK, nnd
that fbrthe present wo must conftno onrsclvra
In these. I have seen this experiment tried
in onoensn, of introducing n new ritual, and
nm satisfied Ihnt it mtist fail. I nin lint a
Hunker iu Ihesn mntters, nnd I can conceive
of religious ceremonies, w hich should be cor
genus an tho days of October, nnd ns various
in their brainy ns the songs of wood-birds;
but the spirit ol mirage has not yet completed
its period of rc-nrtion, nml it is not sale to
try to anticipate its workings. If our forms
are true, wn can bear to have them simple,
nml be content w ith our congregational sing

Abolition of Slavery in New York.
Mr. Mintlioino Tompkins, arm of Daniel
I). Tompkins, was the Free Soil candidate
for Governor of New York. In nn address
to the riliznig of New Yoik, preceding the
late election, he urges their support of the
principles of freedom, by the follow ing con
siderations. Tim nihil ess was called forth
by nn unworthy attack of John Van lluren,
upon Mr. T'onipk iii's consistency.
What people ran, with so great propriety,
he urged lo take ground ill favor of our con
Mitniioiiul rights, ami iu opposition to Ihe
uiieonsiitinioni.l nnd oppressive netioti of
Cotigiess as the people of the great stale of
New Yoik? What people has ileiivcil so
much benefit from the nboliiion of slavery,
nml Ihe consequent elevation of labor within
Iheir own limits, ns the people of this great
slate? ( f what nvnil Ihe great enterprise
of her citizens? Of what nvnil her great
agricultural, commercial, mid mamiliirtiiiing
nilwilitagcs and facilities? Of what nvnil
her I'Xtcnsivn nntmnl resources? Of
what nvnil, I would nsk, would luivo been
nil her great internal improvements? Of
w hat nvnil the great genius of a Clinton ill
projecting, nnd his indefatigable elliirts in

of those improvements, had there not hern

paved the way for the hriieticial results w Ii if It

And while I would claim nil honor for the

which they cannot be deprived, mid one
which, I trust, they will ever appreciate.
For one of those descendants, I can answer
that he values that le-yey mortt highly than
