lave nothing to say. Hut tho absence of the
auoro objectionable feature of colonization at
ita annual meeting, can a yet hardly persuade
us, that it ha really experienced a regeneration.
It i yet composed of slaveholders and necro
later : men who put no limit to their oppres
sion and scruple at no means, however revolting
to juttic or outrngeoua to humanity. The ev
idence we ask of their conversion is, that they
act themselves against those law and that pub
lio sentiment, which render it necessary for
men and women to cmigr.ito from this lnnd,
with her unoccupied territory and her inviting
resources, which render" necessary for site
sntw a n J tromen to emigrate men and women
who are alone competent to become ohVicnt

ianity to Africa. We aro not unreasonable in
Ihia demand, inasmuch a the coloniz.ttionist
tnak the public sentiment and enact tho law
from which it become necessary for this people
to ecape. We can give them imitll crtdit for
benevolence in relieving their colored hrcthren
nd providing for them an asylum, while they
themselves create tho necessity for that asylum,
and are the authors of that oppression which
demands relief. Their colonization benevolenco

institution. Hot color, race, blood, an 11011

in Columhu. I did not get hore, it is true, to

girt of her mind, in keeping a house, whether
j she have one to keep or not of locking era

Now if there are houset to keep, cradles to

ahouid think it as irir.rrf and trrofiy a I would

neglecting her family and her household, and

FntENO Maiuls: In the obituary notice of
lluth Oalhraith, there it a typographical error,
which in justieo to her memory should be cor
reeled. It reads, She was fond of reading
noetl and biographies." Il should read, "Mie
was fond of reading traveh and biographic."
She waa not particularly fond of novels, though
he read telect oii at times. She had 110 taste
for any uuiutcment which wa not connected

FaiKxo Kobi.mso.n : I here inclose 1 (end my
uhtcriptior. lor the Bugle. Occasionally
friond sends ut one, and it comes like anolher
ray of sunlight to our already bright and happy
home i and I can no longer willingly be d.
prived ol 11 periodical vi.,u. I have now wan.
dcred from Ohio, and have taken up my real,
dence in tho beautiful pruirio land. I was
originally a devotee to tho hills and the wood's,
and came here with 110 idua of admiring the
country, .hen compared with my childhood
home; but I w. mistaken. Though my heart
still chug with a kind of reverence, to the .
scenery on which my eye rtr.t reited. yet there
it something in the tcenory hero which U still
more dimming. When 1 saw it in ill tuinuiM
duss, I whs struck with its sublimity and beau
ty, tne fur stretching pruirio clothed in thick
gius, interspersed will, flowers of th
gorgeous hue., wuh hero und Ihcrc a grove
tlmt look iike orchards uiuidst cultivated Held.
But thcio simple beauties of iiuturo are fast
giving way to tho rapid current of emigration,
and the long gra. and the flowers aro fust being
turned under and the bluck earth turned up,
and the leriilo toil is lound to yield abundant
eropa of varioui groins, which with our internal
improvements, tho ecntrul railroad etc., ore
likely to make thit a wealthy country. There
i s pirit of onlerpriie here, and the people at
hcurt moan well ( and if some one that eould,
would only claim their ears, and thow thin,
