Judge Paine's Decisions.
There hare been within a few weeks two im-
portant Judicial dedisions on the great question
or the ego. The one in Philadelphia w hich we
reported last week, that of Judge Paino, which
we publish to-day. This fact justly protects
Hie rights of men, and ably vindicate them
from the claims of property, which impudently
asserts its superiority. This decision has
ejreally excited those, who for the soke of
southern trade would make New York a slave
Kate, for the accommodation of southern tra
vellers, who choose to bring their human pro
perty Into the stale. Judgo I'aino ha received
the most violent anathemas, because he chose
to respect jastrcc, and tho laws and constitution
tf the atato which ho was sworn to tUport.
but as thoso curses aro unavailing, and the
Vomen and children are free, they next, tutn
'ihelr attention to administering consolation to
the whining slave master and in connexion with
slaveholders in Itichmond, havo very promptly
raised $5000, the price of tho eight women and
children, whom Judge Paino has so unccro
moniowsty refected from Texan slavery.
The opinions of those benevolent sympnlhi
ere with (he tmlavera of women and children
may be learned from the following, from tho
. x . Uay Hook. One can hardly moke it
aound otherwise than as a burlesque, upon the
rooioMn sense of tho writer, so shallow is its
eophistryand so barefaced its falsehood. But
U is no such thing. It is tho latest and most
Improved N. Y. method of advocating slavery
THE FRUITS OF PREJUDICE AGAINST
THE FRUITS OF PREJUDICE AGAINST SLAVERY.
The decision of Judge Paino on Saturday
in the sluvo nine, nml the consequent rub
hery or an emigrant luniily ol nil their prop,
erty, is ono of the fruits nf that prejudice
against slavery which exists in the northern
State. The decision may Iih Sound -that is,
according to luw hut u remark inmlu liv
Jmt(;r) IVnie, in answer to Ihu application of
Mr. oulver lor costs, apeak inn plmnly lor
misinterpretation what tlio Judge's senti
ment are upon shivery. " It ia a enso of
hardship on the one shin " said ho " nml of
txtremegoodjorlune on the oilier," II llu is
the opinion nl ihe judges throughout tho coun
try there will uol he n slave in the United
Htaies twelve month hence. Wlnit right
line Judge P.iino to pronounce, in mm of our
courts, the riiiintiiiiinxioii of n linnily of young
laves n ciisc nl'cxtrcnie good Untune to I hem ?
Is surli the law or lint fart ? How dot-she
know that il ia n ense of " good fortune?"
In our opinion nml in this cose our opinion
is n good na his or nny other Judge's thin
in a case of extreme hardship on the one
side, nud H great misfortune on lint other.
What "good liirttnio" is there lo the mother
of Iwo young children in bring takrn (Vo in n
good and riiniliirtalilu home, from tin! care
and protrrlinn of n kiml mistress, and throw n
out upon the wmld to take rare of herself?
Is the piisiiinu of the colored rare in this city
an goml that Judge Paine thinks it " good
fortune " for n southern slave tn iiltaiu il ?
Are the negroes ill this city an cntnliiiinhlo
ml happy o well provided lor, so healthy
and an moral that one of our judges must
inniouiice a lile among them ns one of
u giMd fortune" to the southern slave?
Mr. nud Mr. Lemons have taken earn of
these women mid children from their iiilhn
ry they Imve fed llii-m, clothed iheni, and
provided for tlieni na fur their own house
hold, and up lo this time never have received
anything in return. One of the children ia
five years old, two nre seven, another eleven,
two sixteen and the oilier two women of
bout twenty and twenty-two yearn. They
were willing, like good honest hoys and girls,
to trorJc for their master nud mistress in re
turn lor what hna Itcen ilono for them, and
would, had they not fallen nmoug thieves,
done ao w ithout grumbling or complaining.
Judge Paine hue told them they wern fortu
nate in lieing able to repudiate this debt, and
their first lesson in freedom ia that it ia right
lo atenl, and that no obligations to relum
lalmr for labor, or good for good, exist in N'. Y.
Their contract wild Mr. nud Mr, I.em
mons wna that for what they hud ilono for
them, they the lioya and gii Is should work,
imply work. They were lo lie provided for,
led and clothed, nud kept comlbi table, and
taken rare of in health, in sickness, and in old
age. U there a man any where in the north
ern Slates thut will ngruo tn do what Mr. and
Mrs. Leuimona bad a l' reed nud were bound
lo do by the laws of Virginia nud Texas ?--
Not one! No one in this city or Suite will
agree In take care of them, in health, in sick
ness ond iu old age, for all they will or can
Will Mr. Culver, will Horace Greeley, will
John Jay or Judgo Paine? No not one of
them. Their answer would be, '(.), you ore
free you must lake rare of yourselves;" nud
I be poor things will try, and try in vnin, and a
thousand lime will they wish themselves
back in old Virginny"-hut long helnro old age
cornea upon them, their bones will lie moulder
ing in the grave. These poor uegroeaiire more
iiiiliirtuunie than Mr. and Mrs. Leirimoiis-tlie
hnnUhip is on their aide. The philanthropy of
Sir. Jay, Culver and Judge Paine, bns robbed
Mrs. Leniinonsof all her properly but it hna
ruined the negroes. Hail lliey been let alone
they would huve been useful, contented nud
bappy, and probably lived tn n good old age ;
now they will be of noeiutlily benefit to them
eelve, their ruce or mankind. They will live
miserably, lie a curse to society, and die as
soon aa rum, debauchery, vice und crime,
can kill them.
, The other doolsion, that of Judgo Orcicr in
rhiledclpht, involvod the same question.
Mr. CaufTman and others wore prosecuted for
aiding in tho successful cscapo of slaves who
fiad beon brought from Maryland to Pcnnsyl
Vania six years before. Instead of meeting the
nuestion and deciding It according to justice
and legal preocdent. Judge Groier thrust it
aside, with tho absurd declaration that it must
be controlled by the laws of Maryland, and not
of Pennsylvania. Bpeaking of tho right of
slaveholders to take their slaves through frco
states, he says t
This question deponds on tho law of Mary
land, and not of Pennsylvania. This Court
cannot go beyond the status of these pooplo
where thoy escaped. We know of no law, or
decision of the Courts of Maryland, which treat
slave as liberated, who has beon conducted by
liia master along the National Hoad through
the Bute of Pennsylvania."
In other words, slavery la to oe introduced
Into all the free states, at the pleasure of any
strolling slave merchants, who chose to march
their manacled victims through our borders.
And the slave state Is to doeido the right of tho
free. Tills is the respect the learned and pious
Judgo Urcicr has for the sovereign rights of his
own citato of Pennsylvania. Of course he ia
not expected to have any for tho rights of indi
viduals. IIo treats quito aa cavilicrly, the legal
authority which should govern him. Lord
Mansfield's famous decision was somewhat in
his way. Of that he disposes in the following
summary manner I
'On this subject Lord Mansfield has said
oM rrry pretty things (in the casa of Summer
set) which aro often quoted as principles of the
common Inw. But they will perhaps be found
by examination of later esses, to be clsscd with
rhetorical flourishes rather than legal dogmas."
The Tribune commenting upon this says : j
Will any body bo guilty nf accusing Judge
Orcicr of saying "very pretty things!" Hea
ven grant thnt the day be far distant when hu
' rctboricai flourishes' shall bo accepted aa le
gal dogmas 1' Yet they have had the effect of
stripping an honest, hard-working Pennsylva
nia larnier of all bo is worth for obeying the
the injunctions of Christ in tho treatment of
tho weary and hunted fugitive. Vcrrily, we
havo fallen On evil days.
This Judgo Orcicr is a man fit for any official
villainy. Trampling under foot patriotism, law
and gospel, ho is at the same limo a prominent
member oi tho 1'resbj tcrinn church, and has
figured somewhat largely in her councils.
Siuco this Philadelphia decision, he has endea
vored to cover up his past olFcnccs, and quulify
himself for further outrages upon liberty by ex
tolling tho purity and incorruptibility of tho
courts, which can make such decisions.
In a charge delivered to a jury in Pittsburgh,
last week, in the ease of Hester Hichardson for
tho murder of her step son, in tho Allegheny
Arsenal, he has tho following in regard to tho
rights of the jury and tho justice of our courts'.
It ia lirrniioe n verdict of guilty or not gul
ly involves this complex npplirulion of the
taw to the larla, nml ia nut u mere finding of
the truth of n judgement, that it has been
anid that Ihu jm y an; the judges both of tho
law mid the inula, and not because the jury
are justified iu substituting their own notions
of w hat the law is or ought to be, in place, of
the insii unions of the Court. It ia true,
that thn history of former limes has ninny
instances iu w hich nil honest jury have w ith
stood nud disregarded Ihu instructions of n
corrupt Court, who, na the instrument of the
vengeance nud oppression of the crown, en
deavored to trample upon the right and
liherticM of the subject or citizen. Hut in
modern limes, and under our institutions
the necesMiiy Ibr such resistance lo judicial
yranny seldom or never occurs, we can
hardly imagine n case in which the (lovcru
iiicul could ilesire, or n judge be disposed,
lo wrogfully oppresa or crush an innocent
individual by perverting the law iiiiulu for
us protection into nu instrument ol cruel
veugeiinco or oppression.
It' wc understand this paragraph, it is tho
opinion of Judge Oricr that there is no necessi
ty now, as iu "many instances in former times,"
fur the jury to bo judges of law and facts, be
cause our courts are now so nearly immaculate
They may bo trusted for tho law. Why not
also with tho facts ? It would bo economical.
And yet only tho week before, this samo Judgo
Order petverted law dndjustico by the opinions
abovo quoted, and then fearing his fuilure to
corrupt tho jury, bullied them into a verdict,
(if tho Philadelphia papers report truly,) by
threatning them w ith imprisonment in tho jury
room over Sunday, after a previously protracted
confinement. Thus ho induced a verdict impo
sing a Uno of $2,800. A penalty sufficient to
ruin almost any of our prosperous and comfor
tably living citizens. And tho object of this
verdict was to facilitato tho return of men,
women and children to a worse than Egyptian
Tho people cannot well afford to forget tho
many instances in which sn ' honest jury havo
withstood and disregarded tho instructions of a
corrupt court." Such "disregard and resis
tance," we aro happy to say is not confined to
' former timer." Wc havo had soino recent
instances as the escaped victims at Christiana
and lhuton can testify. Ju.lgo Groier may not
bo "uble to imayint a case in which a judgo
would be disposed to crush an innocent indivi
dual by pcrvorting tho law," but thoso who
shall learn from the record, what part Judgo
Oricr has borne in tho trials of tho Christiana
prisoners, and tho more recent trial nf Caufman,
will have no occasion to mako drafts upon their
imagination. Tho judgo's attempt to veil his
own soiled crmino and tho prostituted Federal '
Court, ill never succeed while the memory oi '
these Philadelphia trials shall remain. Surely '
it is time (or tho peoplo to suppress the infernal 1
system of sluvcry, which can so corrupt the '
appointed agonts and forms of justice, and
worse, its only truo source, tho intelligent hon
esty of tho masses.

i would astonish you to see
how we are putting down Anti-Rlavery " agi-
tation. Ihe great Dead-nf-Dimnnoint
, - mi
j blew his last breath away, in a vain endeavor
to extinguish the flame of excitement, his own
woru. ana accas naa ainaiea on tne subject of
human Slavery. Again and again, he com
manded the agitation to cease. Out it ceased
not, though ho did. He ceased and deceased ;
but the agitation swept on, with tornado pow

brick all the way from Charles' lliver to tho
Heights of Dorchester; drooping in deep
mourning over tho loss of her favorite idol.
The "m ottos" which appeal down so sadly to J
you in every conspicuous place, would mako
another "Book of Lamentations." Boston
should bo written Boehim, now "Me place of
tht teeepert or tnournert," as in the days of the
But the sincerity of tho grief and mourning
is pretty clearly seen. The Democrats were
half consoled by tho result of the presidential
election. And now, a prominent and wealthy
Boston whig, the proprietor of tho most popu
lar, and deservedly popular Theater in the City,
has just placed dramatic representation of
Uncle Tom's Cabin upon tho stage, in a man
ner to bring the w hole subject of slovcry bo
foro the community as never before. I havo
long wished to behold such an achievement as
tho surest prediction of tho speedy overthrow
of tho slave system.
And this is the w sy tho admirers of Daniel
Webster aro heeding and consumating tho last
labors nf his life, to save tho Union, by silenc
ing all Anti-Slavery agitation.
And now, tho Theater is openly, whero it
has long been actually ; brott and better than
tht Church. Let tho terrible fact bo told in
thunder round tho world. In the Play, tho
slaveholder declares boldly, "Slavery ii of tht

tho ghostly performers solemnly say, if u o

that it is of God. Let us wait patiently for

posed of tho civilized world.
Of the manner of tho piece and of tho per
formance, I need not now apeak. It was Un
cle Tom's Cabin, on tho stoge, and before ono
of the largest and best looking audiences I ever
saw in any theater. And flvo hundred peoplo
bought tickets in the forei oon for tccured uaW,
at double price, and excepting thoso scats, the
houso was almost literally crammed, nearly an
hour boforo tho rising of the curtain. And the

Letter from Michigan.
TECUMSEH, Mich., Nov. 18th, 1852.
FuiF.xn IloiiiNsox i I wrote you last election
day, and have sinco then nn incidents to record
out of the ordinary " light and shades," around
tho usual path of a " field hand," in our work;
although so far I must say, thut in my Michigan
labor, liyht has been more abundant than shade.
Tho day after election I held a meeting in a
school house in tho Valley, with a small audi
enco of abolitioni'ti, a select few of " the elect,"
to uso an evangelical phrase many being kept
away by darkness and storm. Thn next two
evenings went to a school house in Jt.iisiu near
the South part of tho town, the first night dark
very dark with fog and lain, as blinding and
bewildering as tho murky clouds rolling up
from the pit nf Slavery, and wrapping Church
and State in their cimmoriun folds, but still somo
twenty or thirty men camo together. The next
evening a full houso and a good time, and at
tho close of tho meeting gavo out notico for a
Sunday afternoon gathering in an Orthodox
Friend Meeting House near by. When tho
time camo a good number assembled, many of
them Friends, and I took occasion to tell how
the great part of tho Society wcro living in a
legendary virtuo praising the noblo word and
deed of Gcorgo Fox as a cheap substitute for fol
lowing in his step,and being truo to tho duty of
our day as ho was to that of his a sort of Qua
lieriim made eaiy, costing nothing and worth jut
what it cosli. Most present seemed to assent by
silent attention, although somo of couro wcro
moved from their quiet. After meeting, sever
al Friends came and took me cordially by tho
hand, as evidenco of claiming sympathy; may
they bo truo to tho feelings that then burst tho
bond of sect and made us minglo as brothers
in noblo cause
On Tuesday and Wednesday held two meet
ings in a school houso four miles cast of the
Valley, where an Anti-Slavery Lccturo had
never boon heard; the first evening only eoiuo
twenty out, but they listened very attentively
although I spoke with more severity than usual,
judging best to awaken their attention. One
man a Democrat, spoke out with some earnest
ness calling for proof of statement raudo, but
oit lcs.rr.ing the explanation acted in a most
manly way. The next night tho houso was
full and I left quite a number of pamphlets
with them. Thursday and Friday went to an
Orthodox Friends Meeting House, South of
Adrian, toward Palmyra, in neighborhood of
Froe-Soilors; the first evoning was sovoro
storm strong wind and heavy rain and but few
out the next meoting was still with unpleasant
weather and only modcrato attendance al-
though a candid hearing. Sunday last had an
afternoon meeting In tho Valley ogain and on
Tuesday and Wednesday (yesterday) met in a
j Hall In this place an audience of some thirty or
j forty persons only. This is a beautiful town.

thero seemed to be some earnest Interest awa

future, in which case there would perhaps be
better gathering and I may come back if pnssi-

A New Northern Republic.
HiiicKsvii.u:, Cuyahoga Co., )
Nov. 23, Uia. J
lilitornf the Anti-Slnrery Iluiie,
Di;.n Sin : I hove been asked to express my
opinion through the Bugle, in regard to the Dili
resolution of the Michigan State Anti-Slavery
That resolution calls for a new Northern
Republic. My opinion in regard to it.alihough
perhaps of no particular importance, is briefly
this; I liko its language and sentiments, and
had I been a member of that Convention I
should have voted for it.
I havo no affection for oar present Union.
Why should I have or w hy should any north
cm man have ? Of what benefit is it to us r
Acquisitiveness complains that it lightens our
purses. Justieo tells ut thero is nothing fair
or equitable in ullowing slaveholders a repre
sentation according to the number of their hu
man chatties, bribing them to extend as much
as possihlc their piratical system, by giving
them power in the councils of tho nation, greater
than the same number of northern freemen, in
propoition to the number of their slaves.
Morally and religiously, tho Union has made
our country as corrupt as Pandemonium.
Slaveholders can ficcly pass through every por
tion of country with their trunks loaded with
pro slavery documents, and make flaming
speeches in favor of tho "peculiar institution ;"
but tho northener who travels in tho "sunny
South," must bridle his tongue, and if any ex
pression in favor ol the dearest principles of
humanity should riso to his lip for utterance,
he must force it back and smother it in his own
bosom. He must divest bis baggago of all in
cendiary publications, such as the Bugle, for
instance, lest it should sound a note w hich
would reverberate from plantation to plantation,
till the gladsome echoes should reach tho car
of every bondman, and bo answered back by
the cry, terrible only to tyrants, liberty or death.
The sluvo power calls to us here in our homes,
to seize, manacle and return, to tho "dark and
bloody ground," thobrrthrror sister who is
fleeing from the irViyirj of our Union, to find an
nssylum on DsitUi soil, a refugo which ia de
nied him even in that part of our country
w hich is called free.
When our citizens have listened to the voice
of God, and proclaimed liberty to the captive,
they have been consigned to chains and a dun
geon. Slaveholders through their news-prints havo
threatened men who should ennio among them
and advocate the pursuit of happiness, with
tho gallows, tho faggot snd tho stake, no idle
threat, as moro than one can testify.
1 am opposed to tho Union, then, and in fa
vor of a now Northern Republic. I shall labor
for that cnnsuinatior.. When that is attained
and not till then, ue may truly cull our country
tho Laud of tho freo and tho homo of tho
brave." EDMUND BAUTLEIT.
Ann-iT L.vwitr.scn auh-ix-aiim wrrn a Col
ombo Man 1 Strange a thi inuy seem, in this
land of prejudico against the colored race, it ia
nevertheless true, according to the English cor
respondent of tho New York Independent. At
a dinner given by Mr. Pcubody, tho American
banker, to Mr. Lawrence, on his retiring from
his post nf American Minister, and nt w hich
was tho L ird Mayor of London, Sir Charles
Fox, and other notables, tho incident occurred,
as thus related ; Ex.
" I was astonished and gratified to seo Mr.
Liwrcnco walk through the parlors arm in arm
with President lloheru of Lihcria, introducing
him as a particular friend lo My Lord Mayor,'
Sir Charlcs.and other notables. What a change
when tho American amhasaador, tho associato
of lord at tho court of St. James, at homo a
merchant prince and leading citizen of Boston,
docs openly w hat other citizens of Boston have
been mobbed for attempting, walks arm in
arm with a respectable colored man, just as if
be wcro a man and a gentleman ; doe this too
in tho fueo of tho world, and in presenco of
Southern gentleman who no doubt havo upon
their plantations the sons and duughtcrs of Af
rican chief and kings. It seemed a worthy
closo nf bis olliciul career. It was as if ho
said : My Lord Mayor, you prcecivo that I am
entirely frco from thnt prejudice against color
which is imputed to Americans. 1 tako Ibis
method of avowing to you and to my country
man, hero in tho face of tho civilized world,
that in my social intercourse and in my public
rclutions 1 recognize no shade of skin. What
a blessed prospect ia beforo the colored popula
tion of Boston I Who nf them will bo invited
to graeo tho Ambassador's return I I commend
the subject to tho Journal of Commerce."
