Correspondence from New England.
CONCORD, N. H., March 9, '52.
aln my mind to My few word on the
Ute Bible Convention tn your City. And my
f arpoM ha been strengthened by the various
ammsnU and etricturc which hare been made
apen It by Ita opponenle.
Of the character of the Convention Itself I
aa aay nothing. I was not there, nor haa any
extended notice of (t been published. Some of
it epponenta present, I know ; and am glad,
while retaining their present character for pu
rity and morality, that they are of the opposi
tion. I hope no eauae in which! am engaged,

Of tin right to liold auch a meeting, nothing

Men who hold and teach auch delusions, they
are the dangcrou men. Their influence ao far
a they have any, ahould be at once dcttroyed
by lh inculcation of truer aentiment, and by
looting their weokneta or wickedness. We
tised to bear much of the dangcra of "Secret
Societies," especially Free Matonry. There ia
M Free Maaonry, or Secrecy ao deadly at that
f Priestcraft. And the cloren foot of Priest,
raft ia never more apparent, than when hurling
thunder at thoee who dare break through and
lack within the veil at the mytterica and tor
eel ie enacting there.
When the Church or her Minittry bring m
ay thing under the name of Holy, and espe
tally too holy to be criticiacd and examined,
let her beware. I ahall peel it of it a wrap,
tags in the firat place. Then I thall dittcct it
f the very latt ahred of muiclc. Iu every
flber and fllament, nerve and tendon, ahould be
embed out aa minutely aa the carded hemp.

aplit nd divido every particular hair. And if
h have ought that will not ttand thia tett, let
kef kid it from the lightning gtaca of tliii
aid-noon of the nineteenth ceneury.
But then is one point on which mors might
b aaid, than ha been aaid. In apito of all
that haa been spoken, written and published
gainal auch fulshood, there aro thoio who per
iat in attempting to fatten all that an abolition
Sat tart, believe or doe, upon any subject,
upan the Anti-Slavery entcrprite. It teemt
t ase proper to betiove one of two thing about
aueh per torn. Either they are too dull of ap
rakention to be reatoned with ; or elao too
hypocritical and too diahoneat to be convinced
r enlightened by any amount of argument or
Instruction. Whoever belong to the firtt of
thea claaaea, could be of little acrvice to any
suae; and aa to the latter, men can hardly
disagree in tho eatimate which ahould be placed
upon them. I wat not surprised at tbe position
f your correspondent, Mr. Selby, In relation
t the Convention. And the reply of nur
friend W. waa an admirable vindication of our
Knterprieo from auch arrogant chargct.
' It ia true that among the firat to examine
sew auhjectt.or to question the authority of old
nee, atand the radical abolitionitta. It is like
ly eve to remain true. Thia trait in their char
etert,4rt led them to examine the autiiorl'y
f the -slaveholder!. Thia made tl.ein aboli
itUniata. And the unwillingness of the slave
koldert to admit the examination, only made
ue the more scrutinising and tcvere. So will
it be upen tho Bible and ill authority.
' It it not in moral science at it it in phytirnl,
that different men or mir.de will make the dif
ferent diicovcrics. Newton ditcovered new

Watt and Fulton beget the breed of iron hnrtes
to bound over the other. Franklin caught and

according to his measuro. And the moral die
eoveriea and inventions in all time, can bo trac

i In our country, these are ebolitioiiiatt.
Generally they are as averse to War, to Intern
perance, to Seduction and Liccntiouaness, aa to

Obeying the Fugitive Stave Law.
The Truo Democrat says that since the pat-
of tho fugitivo slave act, about fifty colored
persons, throughout the Free Statct have been
arretted a fugitive alavca.
Not much to brag of, when we remember
that the President, tho Supremo Court, tho
army and navy, the Whig nnd Democratic par-
tics and the wholo lower law church and min
ittry, have been hard at work at slavo catching,
for two years and a half. Another thing which
this grand coalition have not dom, but which
they havo sought to do, in Pennsylvania, New
York, and Massachutetta, ia tn secure the pun
ishment of thote who in that time have aided
fugitives, by hundreds and thousanda in their
safe escape to C'.nuda. No. Thank to the
heart that ia in thia nation, in spite of it pro
fessions of inhumanity, notwithstanding the
desperate efforts at Philadelphia, Boston, Au
burn, and Albany, not even ono of all the
thousands who havo refused obedionce to this
law, haa yet been condemned. To tho slave
holders, therefore, so far aa the return of their
fugitive Is concerned, the law ia a failure.
And yet to thi score or two, of poor victims
whom this coalition has returned to their pris
on house, it is and will continue to be terri
ble, an indescribably terrible reality. A reali
ty they will probably feel till death shall come
as their emancipator.
Pacific Uailroao. Congress, after killing
the multitude of plana beforo it, for thia great
national object, finally authorised the President
to mako preliminary surveys with s view to
ascertain the best route. Mr. Chaae secured
this important reault by timely amendment
to the general apppropriation bill.
Tho Hum Uowdica of Akron, have been try
ing to frighten those who have executed the
borough temperance lawa, by firing pistols,
breaking windows, and uttering great swelling
word of violence. From the talk of the last
Standard, we should judge the authorities were
not badly acared yet.
Payment in Advance. In South Caro
lina all the newspaper publishers have adop
ted the rule ot requiring payment in advance
from their subscribers.
Now lot them adopt the rule' of paying
their laborer at all, and we will acknow
ledge that they manifest an era of returning
ense, and semblance of justice. Coum-bian.
From the N. Y. Tribune.
A Slave Auction in Virginia.
A young New-Yorker now on his first South
ern tour, and not rottonisod by the new Influ
ences surrouning him, haa written to ona of the
publishers of The Tribunt an account of 81ave
Auction he attended in Richmond. Believing
that ita publication will do good, and in ita ul
timate consequenses tend strongly to perpetu
ate and harmonise that Union which patrlota
ao reverence, we give it place in our columns
as follows :
RICHMOND, Va., Thurs, March 3, 1853.
Since I left New York I have seen the origi
nal Declaration of Independence, and have seen
it " illustrated " here in thia place. Oh, my
Ood 1 Oh, my Country 1 1 .
I have been an eye witness to scenes such aa
never have been described, and never can.
You and I havo been told by some of the Hough
am of the North that the evils of Slavery are
exaggerated. But they have not been hall
told, and I havs neither the ability nor the htart
to dcacribe tho eccne I have this moment come
I have spent two hours at the publio sale of
Slave. There are four of them, and all in the
aame street, not more than two blocks from
the Exchange Hotel, where we are staying.
These Slavo depots sro in ono of the most fre
quented streets of the place, and tho sales are
conducted in the building on the first floor, and
within view of the passers by. There are
small screens behind which tho women of ma-
turo ago are taken lor Inspection ; but tlio men
and tho boys are publicly examined in the open
store, before an audience of full one bundled.
These examination aro carried on by various
persons interested, and are enough to shock the
feelings of the most hardened. You really
cannot conceive that men in human form could
conduct thcmaclvca to brutally ; each tear or
mark la dwelt upon with great minuteness
its cause ita age.its goneral effect upon the health,
fcc. ie, aro qucttioncd and readily answered.
I saw full twentv men stripped this morning
and not more than three or four of them had
what they termed "clean hacks," and somo of
them I should think full ono-quarter of them
were acarred with tho whip to auch an extent
as to present a frightlul appearance one in
particular waa ao cut that I am suro you could
not lay your finger on any part of his back with
out coming in contsct with a tear. These tears
weie from tho whip and were from two Inches
to on foot in length. These mark damaged
hi snle although only about 43 to SO years
old he only brought $400 i but for these marks
he would have brought $ 750 to $300.
I saw soversl children sold ; the girls brought
tho highest price. O iris from 12 to 18 ycara
old brought from $500 to $300.
I must say that the elaves did not display as
much feeling aa I had expected, a a general
thing but there was out noble exception Uo-.l
bless her ! and save her too 1 1 as I hope he will
in aome way, for if ho docs not Interpose, there
were no men thero that would.
Sho was a fine looking woman about 25 years
old, with three beautiful children. Her chil
dren aa well as herself were neatly dressed.
She attracted my attention at once on entering
the room, and I took my stand near her to learn
her answers to the various quest'ons put to her
by the traders. One of these traders atked her
what was the matter with her eyes. Wiping
away the tears, she replied, ' I a'poso I have
been crying." Why do you cry ? " Became I
have left my man behind, and hit master won't
let him come along." Oh, if I buy you, I
will furnish you, with a n.uch better hus
band, nr man as you call him, than your old
one." "I don't want any belter and I don't want
any other as long as he lives." " Oh, but you
will though, if I buy you." Xo, Mana, God
helping me, I never will."
Did Mrs. Stowo exaggerate tht tpirit in the
slavo No, no. I saw " Cassio's" character
in thia woman fully and fairly aticking out.
Her answers to other inquiries, put by another
man, were quite as " liberty loving" aa thefe
indicated, The most indecent question were
put to her, all of which, after a little hesitation,
But when sked, if aho thought ahe coul.1
turn out a child a year t ahe relied, No, tlatia,
J never ham any more, and I lorry I got thete."
Just before she waa put up I left the room,
for I am aura I could not have stood the scene,
and I ahould have betrayed myiclf.
A scene occurred in this last room which
" may yet be heard from." Just before the
sale commenced, a young well dressed gentle
men, entered the room, placing himself in one
corner of the room, began to take a sketch, and
had proceeded quite far before he waa noticed
by any ona but myself at last ho attracted the
attention of aome of the by-standers until full
twenty or more were looking over his shoulder.
They all seemed pleased with what he was do.
ing, aolong a tho skotch was a mcro outline,
but as he began to finish up the picture, and
form his group of figures, they began to ace
what he was about, and then some one went up
privately to the auctioneer, (who had by thia
time got one nr two sold) and informed him
what the man was doing. He came down from
the stand went and overlooked what was doing
for a moment and aaw himself " written down
for perhaps the first time In his life." He in.
quired of the man what he wat doing. The re.
ply waa" I do not know that I am bound lo
answer your inquiry." Mr. Auctioneer took
hi stand again, but was evidently ao enraged
that he could not go on, for by this time the
whole company waa aware of what was being
done, and while some proclaimed with a loud
oath that the likenaaa waa d d fine," " most
splendid," others were for "footing him." The
artist took the bint, however, without the kick
and left the room. But now we had epecl.
men of Southern bravery. They were all sure
that he was on abolitionist, and they all wanted
to lend a "foot" to kick bim while one small
gentleman said he would pay twenty-five dol
lars to hiro a negro to do it. The excitement
soon passed over, not, however.withnut leaving
on my mind tho truth of the maxim, " that ho
who fights and runs away, may live to fight an
Theae auctions era held daily and they pay
each other tho courtesy to wsit for each other,
so thst the second does not begin until the firtt
has concluded and to on to the laat. Tho sue
tioneer of the second is on hand at tho first
auction to announce "Gentlemen, tho sale of
a few fine Mold hands, including tho usual as
sortment of boys, girls, 1c. w ill now take
place on the corner above, to w hich your atten
tion ia directed," suiting the action to tho word,
he leaves, followed by the whole audience, my
self Included, to his own store, and so on until
four sale havo been made.
If Ood spares me my reason and my con
science, I never will vote again for a pro-slave
ry man, From thia timo forth, I promise and
declare that I am bound for the git " Free
dom or death I " ahall bo tho watchword and
Frederick Douglass in his last paper pre
tcntJtho position, purposes and pro.ipects of the
liberty party as follows:
"The Liberty Tsrty of this State sustains
about the same relation to other anti-slavery
organizations, as that sustained by the Massa
chusetts Anti-Slavery Society to tho Free De
mocracy of Hint State. It is tho repository of
radical anti-slavery truth. Its work l to (ling
right principles and tound dnctiir.es among tho
feople, paving littlo regvd to its numbers.
ts strength is in its devotion to tho truth and
the right. Such an organization may never
elect a ainuJe representative to Congress or to
the Legislature ; yet it may too Its great prin
ciples triumph, and tho grand purpns.i of itt ex
istence accomplinhcd. Its members arc not
eager for place or power. They desiro only to
seo the riht prevail. It them, then, inuin
tuin their organization, meet ul'len together,

Mary Jane, youngest daughter of Hichard
and Evolino W. Milbairne, of Hancock County,
Ind., departed this life, 8unday morning-, March
8th, 1853, in the tenth year of her aje. Tho
departed wat a bright, lively, an 1 affectionate
little girl, that attracted all who came nonr her.
Her affection fur her parents was remarkable.
In the absence of her father, the was the cons
tant companion of her mother, reading to her,
and Interesting her by her ingenious, conversa
tion ; and when, at night, her father roturncd
home, sho would relate to him, the incidents
of tho day, and employ all her artiest affection,
to cheer and onlivcn his spirits.
Sho teemed to have s mind uncommonly ac
tive for her age, and waa the teacher of her
brother and sister. A short time beforo her
death, she read " Undo Tom's Cabin," with an
abtorbing interest ( and now like tho aweet

How oit like bright angels, do little children
come to this world, to cheer end enliven with
their artless prattlo and loving ways, the f.ie
aide of fond parents, from year to ytar, en
twining around themselves, the tet.drrest nr.d
sweetest aflt-ctiens; then, like a Luttcrlly,
bursting their prison bonds, they suddenly
leuve this transitory acene, and tike their way
to the bright "Spirit Home," carrying with
them, to holier things and higher aspirati.ins,
the cherished hopes and affections of their
fondly doating friends. Therefore, Oh ye,
whose heart ore made lonely, be cheered mid
comforted ; for henceforth, another bright an

and with those gone belure, Would loud you

the sun, so tho shades of sadiicis dim tho radi-
anco of tho spirit. Could you but lift tho veil,
and behold your darling, in the companionship
of bright and loving spirits, encircled with tho
radiance of joy, and love, your sorrow would
be turned into rejoicing, and you would think
no more of the body, which diesj but, of the
tpirit, which lives and progresses, throughout
tho endless ages of eternity. J. E. V.
