We published last week a hritf account

of its proceedings. The meelinss, wero in-

i'.ii usion was mot thorough and radical, will
be well underload when wo assure our readers
that the speakers ai'.bcii 1 very faithfully to tho
l'ics!ions pve-cnted in the resolutions. No
v.ito was prnprised on the rc-olu;ion. Tho ob

I y the tlisciu iaii. The sjicixhea on tho nllirm
ativc r.f the icolutions, were charac terised by
calmness, candor, great Intellectual force,
thorough knowledge rf iho subject, end an
cviiiuit rc-ard fur tho euu.o of truth ond mo
lality. Wc may add that tho saino was also
true of Mr. Harwell, of tho Disciple church,
who ndvocated the claims of the Uiblo to a
divine authority. Of Messrs. l'rys? nn,l Jlsycs,
1 it-liytcrian c.cigyincn who particirated in the
itiscu i. ion, wc cannot speak so favorably. In
our juil;;iixnt Iney vuie neither muster of
their sul jivt or tin ir temper. At tho last scs
sion, they seemed to have come to tlio convio
ion of their own incompetency, when in con
nexion with the llcv. N'j'.oy of the McthodM
ihunh in this place, they surrendered the
Hiicstiou to Ilcniy Ambler, lii.-i. This propo
sition w as reciivt d with boisterous approbation,
by u part of the anlicnee, and the modest de
mand was added, that after two limited speech
e by Messrs. Ilartzoil ami Jlarkcr, Mr. AinMer
should l ave the privilege of sjicaking nil in
dillinito length of time. Tho inlidels met this
proposition with n literal obedienco to tlio
christian injunction, " AVIia.oevcr will tr.ketby
coat, let him have thy cloak also." They pro.
po.-e:!, and tlio meeting unanimously adopted
the r'.:so!u:i. -.n, invitinti Mr. Ambler to rom.
men c imiuejMlihi, and continue his address
u-.iti! he had uttered nil he w ished lo say. On
lhi iiivi'.ntion, Mr. Ambler occupied tho stand
nearly thru- hours. The closing part of his
speech., was grossly pcrsoni.1 mid insolent to
w arils Mr. Barker, Apparently designed to rulllu
his temper and provoke recriininution. If this
w as his object, he was eminently disappointed.
Mr. li nker in his pa icneo possessed his soul.
The'introdui'linn to his reply, wus a model of
manly dignity uud Christ-like fubcurai.ee. Of
his argument, wo may say, that it wai equally
a mtdel of eonciscness, clearness, pertinency
and power. Mr. Tidany nho added greatly to
tho Interest of tho meeting, by his powciful
uiialysis, and his clear pciecptiun and forcible
utterance of his viewn, which on lonio points

I cntcrptirs are truly set forth a sulcmn wurning
to all who prefer success to principle and hu

ides wero imbt. hut tbcv tould not succeed
that the infant Seminary could not sustain itself
' agiinst tho tido ef pro-slavery public opinion
1 wbih would set against it, if it IdentiHed itself
, with these sentiments." 'J o save the seminary,
hec speech was duiicd. The Seminary tock
its position for slavciy, that It might thereby
gain prosperity. Its students, who wore friends
nf ficcdom, abandoned it, and it failed. It fail-
I ed in spite of Dr. ltcccher's talent and popular!

hir ed labor could not suffice to restore It. Lane
Seminary to day has no reputation except Iho
unenviable one she earned hy tho expulsion of
her students. A righteous retribution.
One thought theso reminiscences suggest,
which it Is due tojtbc present nnd the fntuio to
utter. It is this, that the inobocratlc violence,
which succeeded tho ejection of the students,
was the legitimate fruit of that ejection. It
followed it as connectedly and surely as the fruit
follows the blossom. '1 ho Trustees of Line

Letter from Mrs. Gage.
MT. AIRY, Nov, 27th, 1852.
Di:a : How rests thy spirit after thit
mortal conflict among the political elements.
Sccst thou llnck darkness in the up rolling
clouds of democracy Ileorest Ihcu threaten
ing thunders, and sccst thou flashing lightnings,
that destroy r Fcarcst thou? No. My heart
tcllest mo thou art not shinned, that thy faith
is sure. Dark and protentousna arc the clouds
powerful as arc tho muttering of wroth, you
know, and I know that there arc stars and sun
beams, behind thoso clouds, and that their
lightning flashes aro needed to purify the air
from tho noxious vapors of falsehood and
wrong. It. seems to me that there never was a
time, since I have known anything nf public
faith or fcclinir, when the great truths of hu-
manity were stirring so deeply the elements of
Ihe moral and political woild. The great qucs-
tion now is human freedom" j not for tho
black man alone, but for tho wbito man ; and
be his shackles put on voluntary, or by force
thcro aro true philanthropic hearts ever at hand
to redeem l.iin. To beg, pray, plead, and last
ly of nil, if need he, to lorco him to assert his
claim to humanity nnd livo Free. Tho signal
triumph of the Democracy, is, to me, evidence
of nil this, while lo oilier minds it seems to
betoken the utter downfall of our country.
There is a charm in tho very w ord, democra
cy," that draws ull heart, that are not strong to
undir.-taiid, how grossly the word in our land
has been abused.
" Democral.one who adheres to a government
of the people, or favors tho extension of the
liglit of sufi'rnge to nil classes of men."
The Foreigner, ignorant of our language, and
ignorant of our laws nnd institutions lakes
the word, nnd tho party who claim il, as being
the reverse of tho Aristoerni-y from which ho
bus just escaped; niul r jntcinz in his new found
freedom, hi newly cranlcd mivilczc ns n hu-
man being, to bo a man among men, gives
nis influence to that party which vaunts tho
name Democracy. So the poor man, who sees,
hears, reads, or thinks but little, is lured by
tho name, nnd tho Democratic party, powerful
in its organism, and indefatigable in its ef
forts, with a man unknown to the public one
whose acts could not much condemn him cither
for good or evil, has euino out for s clinni o in
the world for political glory. While tho Whig
putty, who as o mass, mut be acknowledged
more tho thinkers, havo seen through the sham
pretentious of the lenders of both great portions,
and havo refused to give their aid to cither.
F.ven military glory has becomo disgusting,
nnd many turned sickened from tho Hero of
forty buttles, w ho stood almost pledged, not
only to perpetuate, hut extend the area of sla
very. And thus by their own narrow-minded
policy, and their falso notions of compromising
subserviency, lias this great, conservative party
been prostrated, and a'ono.t annihilated by tho.'ic
who once were strong in spirit with them, nnd
who could not, or would not sell their birth
right of truth, for n mess of party pottnge. It
was an oracle of olden time, " That whom the
ds w Uh to destroy, they first make mad." It
bus seemed even so with tho Whig party.
And if Whig predictions, ns to the cnurso of
tho Democracy prove true, Ibat great, triuui
pliant portion, will place themselves in
same pcidicamcnt. Perhaps they will odd more
slave states. (Hut Ood forbid.) 13ut if they
do, woo unto them as a pntty. Their grent
pro-shivery soldiera aro gone, nnd there nrc
none in the ranka who have the talent and pow
er to wear the mantle of Calhoun, Clay, and
Webster, whilo in tho ranks of the Freedom
party, nre men strong nnd true, who nro every
dnv adding to their ability. Once (iiddinin
stood nlmost nlone, to control Ihc fierce Fiend
of huinnn chattlcisin. How is it now ? With

The women, too, hnve awakened from their
long sleep of degrading listlesnrss, and tho
strong, earnest, persuasive advocates of freedom
for every human soul whether its tenement
be inulo or female, black or white, nre stnrling
up all over the hind. Mothers nro rearing their
sons to hato slavery, poets nrc penning tho
stirring lays, nnd Ihoso w bote organs of speech
are tuned to fincr.hui monies than their fellows,
aro idnging them lo the peoplo. Tho nursery
tide, tho tract, iho fiction, ato breathing silently
into tho hearts of tho young.
' ITuclo Tom's Cubin" is softening hearts
from palace to log hut, and tho young eyes thut
have dropped tears over the sufferings of Undo
Tom, laughed over Topsy, or grown fiercely
Indignant ovor Cissy's wrongs, will hardly for-
get their emotion, or givo their uid, when the
hours of manhood come, to such a demoniac
institution. Thus you see, my dear friend, I
um high in hope for humanity, even through
ull tho darkness around us, teeing light ahead.
You havo undoubtedly heard ol our Mount
GuYad meeting, or rather Woman's Ulghts Con-
vcnlion. I was surpiiscd and cheered with tho
friendly wclcomo Ihc Convention received.
Ministers, Lawyers, and Doctors were in attcn-
ilanco throughout tho meeting, nnd did tho
advocates of tho cause of Woman tho honor
to oppose what they deemed wrong,
to discuss, somew hat, this new subject.
For this wo should thank them. For w hen
ever wo can induco men to pay us sufficient
respect lo openly ape) fuirly oppose us, w o shall
hnve gained a high vantage ground. Hence,
I feel that our oppose) s paid us moro respect, in
Mount Oilia.l, than wo have ever received
chow bore the respect of open discussion.
You know, that our antagonists assert,
that tho prominent Woman's llights wo
men, aro restless Impraclieablcs, who wish to
becomo conspicuous, and who are neglecting
homo nnd its duties, to run over the world,
hunting up notoriety. It was amusing to read
the letters sent in to the Convention by our
earnest fricnds,in ansncr to reeincsts to be there.
, Of the whole, some half dozen, every one ex
cused themselves on tho scoro of homo duty,
! thus proving that they, at least, do not intend
to rush entirely out of their sphere, and set the
world ot loggerheads. Some of our opponents
eaid, "See, women won't always lenvo home."
That is rcry . And wo have known men
kept at homo by duty, before now, and oven ho
obliged to forego a vote for pecuniary prollt, or
physical inability. These objections will all
' vanish, and like the baseless fuhrick of avis,
sion, leave not a wreck behind, ere long.

j taut Wednesday and last night, a discussion
with a clergyman who took Iho ground that
, Iho President of tho U. S. would ho justified
Morally, in putting down by force, a sluvo in
manfully ' surrection w hen it reached indiscriminate blood
and shod for Freedom's sake I An argument that
w ould justify Joseph of Austria, Czar Nicholas
Georgo tho HI, and Iho wholo race of tyrants
and abettors of tyranny from the governors und
seddiers of a Uomati proviiico sworn to suppress
insurrections against Nero or Culigula, to the
Fiiicnd Itonixsox I I wrote you last from
Tccumsch, just on the point of starting north
ward. At noon took stage for Ypsilnnti, in
company w ith some four passengers well look
ing men and women well behaved as the world
goes tobneco-juico and brandy among the
masculines notwithstanding. From a few care
less rcmaiks about slavery and colored people,
I found them true Amtricun, one and nil j pos
esscd with the idea that slaves aro a raco ol
rullier ill used, and quilo ill-deserving iiiyjrr:
in a distant scctitn of our glorious republic,
with whose condition wo have nothing to do;
nnd nil human bciiiua with blink skins, tnyyci-s
anijhotr, to bo kept ill their place. How ever,
w c all rode on through mud holes over cordu
roys, (not bee lies hut rail-roads), and rolled
over a good plank rood nt a dashing pa:c, the
last ten miles, from .S.ilinc to our stopping plnce.
Tho next morning, found my ivny lo ll.o house
of SainT I). Moore u fiicnd Home six miles
south of tho town one w ho is seeking to act
up to tho Quaker of ohlcn time a resident
formerly of Pennsylvania, and a reader of the

your readers, (every "itinerant" lecturer does,)
how pleasant and cheering it is to find a lice

meeting SamT Moore, and hy his ready aid,
attending four good meetings in School houses
and a Fiiends meeting house in three days time.

j sibuiti in a hall j it is a beautiful town of some
three thousand inhabitants tho State Normal

Anti-iiinvery seems hardly looked on as rented-
ulle yet, nod the peoplo jealous of Ihechnruc-
,cr o1' ,llc'r goodly town du not like to engage
anything out of character. Such ns talking
hout negroes as men, and kindred fanaticisms,
'1'he first cvenii g some fifty persons mt-t in a
room largo enough for four hundred, sitting
scattered about at convenient distances from
each other, to givo tho best facilities for air,
locomotion, and copious expectoration,
I commenced brtiihinj ice and persevered

Some passing in and out with most republican
freedom. The next evening a hundred or moro
caino together an audience of belter quality

They seemed to he snmewnut surprised to learn
that Anti-Slavery had a deeper significance than
nicro question of political expediency that
our cause tniylit be, not only respectable, but
noble, iinporturt, true. At tho close, a few
friends cumc forward with an earnest request
for moro lectures and I hnve promised to return,
Hud a meeting in Plymouth three miles dis-
Presidentelect, in this land, awoin to hold
millions in the bloody grasp of our Christiun
Neros, and Whig and Democratic Caligula of
the Sluvo-luud. The disputant was a Freo
Suiler! and said he should justify John P. Hale
in heading an army to stop a servilo war as he
would bo bound to do by his olilcial eath aftor

Thcro is much real, earnest feeling among
Free Soilers in this State. Many of thorn ap
pro, isle the necessity of A moral agitation, and
will bear a fair discussion of merits and demer
its. I fecHiko doing all we can in common
with them, but still keeping and declaring the
distinctive principles which give life and soul
to our movcmcr.t, . ;
How tho discussion with the clergyman pro
gressed, I lenvo you lo judgo. It seems useless
lor men to try to opposo enii-stavcry by argu
ment, prejudice may for a time, be a substitute,
if well appealed to ; in Ypsilanti an old poli
tician an t-x-mcmbcr of Congress tried hie
hind, but not knowing the strength of Anti- '
Slavery principles, luid himself open and in ten
minutes, bent a retreat down stairs, with roar
of laughter following him. I fear Sometimes
there i danger of Anti-Slavery talkers growing
proud or rather there would be, slid they tint
know the truth of their positions impregnable
a Uibtalter, unnssailublo even by a "forlorn
hope" of talent and power brought against, .
them in debute. We stand on such vantage
ground aro so armed und shielded that if needs,
he wo must remember, it is not our ability, hut .
Ood's sacred Truth ever with us. and tho unw
protected weakness of our opponents.
In the old days of chivalry, the knight,
sheathed in armor of proof, mounted on his
strong charger, would rush among a crowd of
nn enemies' common retainers the spear pier
cing through ono frail breust plate, tho sword
d -.i-ing, bufT jerkin, tho ponderous, baltlo-axe
ci im. ing helmets in pieces, nnd smiting the
wtnnrs lo the earth, while blows rattled thick
and harmless on his own steel-clad person.
lie prcw haughty ami looked down on the vile
eant.ili, for hi was a win lure of prido ami
power. Our urmor of proof is more complete
our weapons (Truth and Iro drawn from
Heaven's nrmory,) keener and heavier our
blows dealt home more certainly let us never
be proud, for we fight not ngtdnst man's better
nntuie, but only to destroy the venom of Pride
nnd Cruelty nnd Prejudice, and restore our fel
lows, their glorious biithright of Honor, Ocn
llciicsi, Strength and Humanity.
