law. lana: The Anti-Slavery tentiment,
say wind, ia the embodiment of Christianity
4 those who reject the one, must nen-M'irWy
r.jeet the other. Yet, the majority of the
elergy, aa well as of the membership, of the
different popular denominations of this land,
reject anti-alavery. What follows Simply,
that they ate ami- CAritt. And most of the
Clergy seem to think Hint they are doing God's
service in killing anti-slavery prophets and
lying about those that are sent auto them. 1
mat led to the conclusion that when tlio elergy
out to lie they cease to exist. A very good
text for them at thia time, ia the late Conven
tion to dissusa the Bible. I heard one the
ther day, call it, "a convention of Devils" ic.
I tuppote he km w nothing about the object,
er doing of th-t convention. But prida are
generally better at talking of that of which
they know nothing, than of that which the
pie ought to know. I am more than ever
vincd, that anti-.larery ran triumph, Only
var the tlain bodice of those hordes ol robhert
called ohurchct. And now, that the political
esoitruient, ia for the present blown over and

Jim Detuocrata have tbown their 'itrenyth,'

teas, ef a alaveholding religion to hold up
a the eourn end contempt of the people, a
priesthood, a church, a religion, which would
for a moment connive at the imputation of
ne of the least of all Uod'a children. Soino
f the Methodist elergy say tlicy havo but very
few slaveholders in the church North and
they hold but few alavaa. Well, what of that !
When the door ia open to one it ia open to all
elaveholders all things else being equal.
While the Methodist church hat in her com

Free Dcmocratio party, which will somewhat
astonish aomo of its members. Dr. Daily'!
opinioiia arc certainly moro in harmony with,
those of the. party, their platform being the
standard, than those of Mr. Thomas. Though
thcro are, doubtless, all shades of opinioiia
among members of the party. When tho au
thorized exponents nf its principles shall be
ready to adopt Mr. Thomas' views in regard to
the legality of slavery, it will mark a manifest
progress in the party.
From the Carson League.
WRONG DOCTRINES OF THE NATIONAL
" The National Era, the central organ of that
party, and by all moans the ablest and most
ludicioua of its advocate.- has renpstrrllv hp.
knowledRcd that tho sole power over tlavcrv
rests with the tlavcholding Statca themselves;
that it never can bo abolished or ameliorated
they choote to do it, and that all other
reliancct or expectations nro utterly worthless
-A'. K Toil..
TUo National Era advocates no party
claims. It belongs not to the free democracy.
It utters its own opinioiia independent of party.
Some of its opinions are strikingly opoacd to
the mott valued nntiona of the free democracy.
Among these, is the notion, that tlavcry is one
of the elements of tho constitution that it it
legal and local, and that the States may con
tinue it to long as they please. Dr. ll iilcy Is
an anti-alavery man and maintains tho wron-
fulness of tlavcry, and thowa ita workings and
power over the government with much learning
and ability. But thcro it nothing moro unsat
isfactory to the fteo democracy than hit notion
that tlavcry ia a legality under tho control of
tho States. Ho may as well say piracy and
murder and rupo nro legalises, and under Stato
control, or that they may be mado so, for sla
very comprisct murder, piracy and rape.
" The free democracy say, that tho judiciary
may, and ita duty ia to toy that alavo law is a
r.ulity and to set free every slavo who. may ho
brought before it on Habeas Corpus that it
is the duty of every man to set the slave free
from hit matter, the marshal, or tho judge by
force, if need be, to tavo him from being car
ried away a tlnvo. To treat slavery as utterly
undefended by law, and slaveholders as pirutcs,
we make no distinction of rights botwecn ono
man and another man. Tho contsitulinn is
made " to establish liberty and justice," and
will put up with nothing short of liberty jus
tice. It it not needful thnt the Prctidcnt should
tend an army into the Statea to enforce " a re
publican form of government," if ho will treat
slavery aa a nulity in all hit official transac
tions, and the Judiciary of tho United States
will set tho slave free when a cate it presented,
there it an end to tlavcry."
Florida Indians. The President last week
eommunieated a messsga to Congress, stating
that difficulties exist with the Scminolea in
Florida, and advisee attention to tho subject.
Recent accounts ttate that they have massacred
aome of the U. S. Forcet. The difficulty orig
inated in an attempt to remove the Indiana.
The chiefs entered into contrtct with the
government to remove, but the Indiana demur
red, and deposed Billy Bowlegs who made the
treaty. The Indians in Florida only number
00, and we are to have another war with them
for their twain ps.

Mh. Editor : In our country it it a generally
received opinion, or more properly, admitted
proposition, that all pcnplo have a right to muko
their own laws. I.i this day of investigation
aome may daxo to question thia Kepublican ax
Vho wil1 U U ri8,lt 10 mve,t Prt r
by which they are controlled
If females oro people, are they, on this repub
lican axiom, under any obligation to obey our
How ia it with the slave? He is subject lo
law terribly subject. Ho has no participation
in the law-making which disfranchizes hiin,
placing him under the absolute, Irresponsible
control of another. If tho axiom ia veritable,
in its literal meaning, theso anomalies do not
invalidate it ; they only show our monttrout
inconsistency ; but arc they true ? There aro
thoso w ho answer, No.
They tay good pcoplo have a right to moke
laws for tho government of themselves, (but
not for the government of others who havo no
voice in the matter,) because they would mako
none but positively goodjlawt. Bad peoplo they
tay, cannot havo such rights; their proclivities
being bad, good legislation could not be antici
pated, and bad peoplo aro not the better for bad
laws. Tho whole question can be put in a nut-
tholl without crowding. Tho inhabitanti of
Utah will mako themselves a constitution one
of these days. No one doubts their right to do
to. Havo they tho tight to make provision In
that constitution, for the protection of thieves,
robbers and burglars ? Have they a right to
demand premiums for men claims ? These art
extreme cosct, but extreme casct aie required
to test a principle. Who w ill venture to answer
these questions affirmatively, taking tho truth
of tho axiom, for tho basis of tho argument.

Some time since, a free colored citizen of
New York, .Solomon Nortl.rtip hy name,
left his wife and children, In the prosecution
of his business, and went lo Washington
city. There ho was seized while in a state
of inseiuiihiliiy produced by drugged liq
uor, carried to slave pen, anil sold for n
slave. Ilo was cruelly beaten heenuse he
demanded his liberty, and finally taken to
Arkansas, where he was held as a slave.-
At length he found opportunity to inform
his friends of his locality and condition, and
they sent an agent lo Arknns:iw, w hn succ ril
ed in his recovery. I la recently brought
an action for kidnapping, against James II.

this predicament, hy the swearing of another
slave trailer, who test i lied that HolouiMi was
purchased of .mini while r. inn, though ho
could bring no bill of sulo or other evidence
of llie purclii.se.
Such is justice nt tho American cnpilol. An
