Address on the Unconstitutionality of Slavery.
and the Power of Congress to abolish it.
in Adrian, Dec. 22d, 1852, BY REV.
E. H. PILCHER.
Interference of Religion in Polities. A Discourse
delivered in the First Congregational Church of
25th, 1852, BY REV. G, C. CURTUS, Pastor.
Adrian must be, a we know It In, tho horn
of tome rid id rnti-slsvcry agitator, or her
minister would not, at these two psmphlcta
Indicate they are doing, compete with each
other in anti-slavery discussion and agila'.inn.
Whatever positions the ministers may take, if
they act the example of agitation and diteutsitm,
their people will be apt to follow. And when
onco launched upon the aca of inquiry, the
miniatera loose their power of positional con
trol. They are divested of thoir divinity, and
become like common morula. Their argu
menu and facia are judged of aa aro thoae of
other men, and untrumclcd by authority, all
Investigators will obtain a more lcs perfect
aproxiniatinn to the truth. We consider it
therefore uiv-t fortunate for any phnc moat
fortunate for tho advancement of truth when
the misistry cniiutiein 0 or prosecute the diseus
aion of tln important iiucMion of slavery, and
inquire into our common obligations and rela
tion, to it. Tlne who volun niily mine lor
ward and give the nine. Ion of their station and
personal influence to tho work, dncrve and will
over receive the rpect of all lover of righte
ousness. Such will also rejoice over, if tliry
cannot ao much respect, the motive, of thoae
rninisttr who aro forced into di-cussinn,
by the roolute ariti slavery of the community
where they dwell.
We know nothing of the clergymen, whose
name we have given above, except what we
learn from their productions which aoine un
known friend haa kindly forwarded ui. Tho
address of Mr. Filchcr ia a lucid, and in aome
repecta forcible atatcment of tho common
argument for the anti-slavery character of tho
Constitution. First giving the positive evi
dence and then taking up tho alleged excep
tions. Mr. 1'ilchcr, unlike aome who coincide
with hia views, advocates the application of hia
principle to the abolition of alavcry direct.
lie contends that alavcry may and should bo
abolished in tho states, by direct action nf Con
gress or by decision of the Supreme Court.
Ho hold the government responsible, until it
ahall exercise those just powers for the aboli
tion of slavery everywhere. W'e greatly ad
mire thia feature of hia address. We want to
ae every man earnc-.ttly press a practical appli
cation of hia principles, whatever they may be.
Merely to amuse ourselves with theories and
attractions is to innko mockery nf justice and
to trirlo with the sorrows ol the slave. Mr.
V ik her has, however, failed to inform us how,
encumburcd with our present union with slave
holder, w can ever bring the general govern
ment, even if it admitted it constitutional ob
ligation, to act fer the abolition nf slavery.
On thia point, indeed, he apeak with discour
tnent, and has, to sustain hia hope, only hia
(joneral faith In God and human progress.
Mr. Curtis, in his sermon, come with direct
neaa to hi subject, and apeaka the truth with
plainness and without apology. lie vindicate
the moral agitation of the day, and exposes
the fulahood and hypocracy nf the pretences
under under which they are opp osed. He af
firms that the true province of religion and
ehriatianity i in the midat nf the strife with
evil, and that the people may bo justly suspici
ous of that Christianity which stand aloof
from the conflict with alavcry. liut we will
let him apeak for himself. In reply to the stale
objection against ministerial and church inter
ference, that religion and morul agitation
ahould be kept acpaiate from politice, he says :
No one rnn rrfriiiii fYoiii smiling In heur
how aoine men enk upon this subject. Let

To tha Friend of Universal Liberty, we

FaaiooM ia an Inestimable bleaating, Slavery
an unspeakable evil; all history bear -record
to the struggle of th wise, tho good, and tbe
great In bohalf of Freedom. The noblest of
men, and the greatest of the nation, have al
ways valued It above all price. In our day It
certainly ought to be no leu precious. And
Slavery being tha very opposite of Freedom, 1
it deadliest foe.
Can we then, Fellow Citiiena, be engaged in
a better work than that of assembling in teal
nua and Christian apirit. to consult how most
effectually the Abolition of Slavery may b
brought about I
The Slavo-holder and their numerous ailics

for the land of the free I
Convrntion or Colored Citixene. We
some how failed to notice, at the time, the con
vention of our colored fellow citisens, at Col
umbus on the 10th and 20th ult. A State So
ciety for mutual improvement was organised.
A resolution was adopted to establish a paper,
also one in favor of the Maine Lasr, among
many other of importance. Tbe speeches are

all the proceeding of th occasion were marked
with dignity and propriety.

General Cass, who is no match for Mr. Hute
at a Joke, put on hi dignity on th 10th, and
tried him in the wy of a sermon. It is the
ltot specimen of crying enough, and begging
off. Th Goneral did not make much by th
Mr. Cass (aid hi resolution reaffirming the
Monroe doctrine would com up on Monday,
and he hoped all who desired to apeak on it
would come prepared to do so, and let a voto
be taken on it as soon at th debate wis over.
He supposed there would be some more Joke
by the member from New Hampshire, (Mr.
Hale) and then ho hoped there would be a vote.
Mr. Hale said ho was serious in hi reference
to Canada, and if the gentleman waa joking
with respect to Cuba, it ought to be known.
Mr. Cos said he thought there were many
theatre in the country which were more ap
proprwte arenas than the Senate for the habitu
al display of joking upon every proposition
connected with the interest of tho country.
8uch a course was unworthy the dignity of this
body, but it had been compelled to submit to it
for nearly six year.
Mr. Hale thanked the Senator far hi coun
sel, but it would have been bolter If it had not
been postponed o long. He had but a fow
week left, and could hardly profit much by
the lecture. He had aeen many propositions
Introduced, out of place, out of time, and
lit a manner he thought objectionable
Ho had great personal regard for the Senator,
and if, instead of thundering forth denuncia
tions, he had presented hi rcbuko and objec
tion under a playful sarcasm or joking remark,
his conduct ought to hav been looked upon aa
kindneas, rather than as deserving contempt.
How far his courso had been approved, hojwss
content to lcavo to the Senate and country,

House of Representatives passed a bill dividing
the territory of Orrcgon, and also establishing

face resitted, but without effect.
