LETTER FROM PARKER PILLSBURY.
Dear Mariusi My Work linn commenced in the
Went nndor tlio mint favorahlo and hopeful cir
cumstance. The mooting at Connenutvillo, Linot
yillo, nd Moadville, Pa., wero all well attended
and Indicated a most encouraging intorost. In the
Utter place, our doctrines arc almost entirely new,
Imt except a fow juvenilo demonstrations from
Allegheny College, everything won all that could
ha? boon expected. Thero was one thing obscrv
lable ; and that wiw, no woman came to tha meet
ings. This Is unusual, except in places where only
Free 8oilism is preached for anti-slavery. In such
places, in New England as well as at tho West,
women sometimes stay away. Why should they
not f What have they to do with politics.
In Lincsvillo, there is a littlo hand of nliolitinn-
ista whoso labors, though quiet and unobtrusive,
are yot above all praiso. 1 was greatly indebted
lo Isaao Ilrooks and wifo, for attentions and kind
nesses which nono know how to appreciate better
than an Anti-Slavory Agent, whose home is almost
always away from homo. I havo seldom seen
pwrcr devotion to the causo. Other Inlmrors in the
Lecturing field, have often hnd occasion to witness
to the same generosity and hospitality on thoir part
So too in regard to tho Bishop family and others.

LETTER FROM MEADVILLE.
7b the Editor of the A. S. Duylei
Drab Sir: Our morally benighted town has
Iiad a visit from Parker Pillshury recently. His
spirit-stirring tones havo tingled in many a dull
dead oar; havo gono down into many a cold cal
lous heart, willing or unwilling, and nro now wor
ding, I trust amid tliis mass of sclfinhncss and in
'clifTerontisin and inhumanity, for tho good of sonic,
if for tho condemnation of some. Out among the
tnuto hills which embosom our villngo hnvo his
words gone to mnko oven them witnesses for or a
Jrainst us as wo havo received or rejected tho treas
ures of truth ho brought us.
I regretted much that Mr. P. hnd not a larger
audienco the two evenings ho lectured horo. llut
then, if wo tuko into account tho prejudice against
bis cause which pervades this community, princi
pally, their fond worship of tho constitution, their
hatred of tho colored race and tho extra exertions
Jiut forth by a few of tho toi ditant leaders of pulc
lic movement, to disparago his labors and cast op
probrium on every ono who would attend his moot
ing, wo shall not bo surprised that his audienco
Was fow and trier t, nay, we shall ratlior wonder that
Khero wore so many as 150 or 200 men whose souls
woro sufficiently thoir own that they could not in
dependently of a vilo, potty public sentiment. But
there woro so many. I rejoice. For tho snko of
this pooplo genorully, I rejoice; for it furnishes me
with reason for tho hopo, that this regiment of the
(groat cirolo of humanity is not entirely given over
for lost. Had Sodom held hnlf tho numbcrof souls
oven so much superior toits dny and surroundings
licavcn's hot vengeance hnd not fallen upon it.
And theso men that attend Mr. P's. lectures were
vhiefly Isino and sinew of tho community; not tho
cowardly priests (with a couplo of houornblo excep
tions) nor tiro truckling politicians nor tho unprin
cipled anglors for public pntrunago or smiles, llut
(ho hnrd-liamlcd, noble-hearted sons of toil the
men who, with their fellows nil over tho country,
re carrying this nation forward to tho subliincst
Victory tho men who arc mainly milking all that is
Intrinsically noblo in tho history of thoir time.
Upon such was it Mr. P's good fortune principally
to act whilo hore ; and I think, a more apparently
susccptiblo audience I have never scon. They
eemcd to bo, nay, they really wcro, completely at
tho control of the lecturer, born away by tho stronm
of his eloqiion co, moved to molting by his pathos
and roused to flrcy indignation by bis vivid portray
al of the injustice and inhumanity wrought upon
mo weax ana lowiy ot uou t household. jotn
figuro or tropo, not a foot or statistic, not a flash of
wit or logical inference was lost upon them. Thoy
Loro the whole away from that hall, and I hesitate
not to assert it as my opinion, that what they heard
from Mr. P., on thoso evenings, is now burning in
thoir bosoms a pent-up firo ready to burst into
tlio clear flame of righteous action, upon fitting oc
casion. Bo assured that if Mr. P. over lcoturos in
this town again his readiest audionco will be that
which greeted his first appearance horo.
I am sanguine as to tlio effect produced by Mr.
Tillsbury upon his hoarora in Moadvillo, you per
ceive, but I trust I do not "reckon without my
host." I spoak that I do know. Lot mo mention
an incident from among many others equally con
elusive on tliis point.
The day boforo Mr. P. arrived hero, I called upon
one of our Democratic Editors a man bitterly op
posed to ovcry kind of Abolitionism, and ono who
holds the opinion thnt a Negro has no soul for tho
purpose of gotting a notico of Mr. P's intended
meetings iiusortod in his paper. Ho told me tho
notice was too late for that week's Issue; "but"
Said he "I'll tell you what I will do. I will give
him a scathing notice in my next paper. A mad
fanatic who raises his unpatriotio hand against the
Union aud the country of Washington, and who
Would dash down tho cup of fruition from our oa-
fter lips, who holds the Christian's hopes and sub.
lime dutiet as abominations, deserves littlo mercy
Croat Uioso who love their country and thbir God."
Well, on the evening of Mr. P's second looturo, I
aw this indignant Editor at the mooting, watched
Mm with intorost, and noticed no more absorbed
hearer than he. The following week I Bearchod
his paper and ould find no such a tirade as, from
bis promise, I had been led to cxpoct. Whethor a
more intimate acquaintance with Mr. P's views hud
anything to do with changing his purposo I know
not; but I think his jtatriotie and christian horror
of Abolitionists is somewhat qualified of lata.
This is only ono instance of what I oould expa
tiate upon, from amidst many others. I omit hore
much of the fluttering criticisms passed upon Mr.
P's abilities as a spoukor. His powers of oratory
were admired by all who heard him; his arguments
were fully consented to by many, and oven thoso
who differed from his method of thought aud action
acknowledged the soundness of his premises, the
fairness of most of his conclusions, the correctness
of his citations and tho general invulnerability of
his position. The only qualifier they could cnll up
to nil this was, that ho did not discriminate, and
that he Imputed wrong motivos in cortnin cases.
At tno closo of tho last meeting, a collection was
taken up which resulted in the contribution of some
few dollars. I was very gratefully disappointed at
this, for I hnd feared that Mr. P's uncompromising
candor and plainness of speech would havo pro
cured for him from our villngo conservatives a far
different kind of payment.
And now what inference may tho friends of the
slavo dorive from Mr. F's reception in this town
and tho effects he produced on many minds
hero. Surely one of hopo and joyful encour
agement, of faith In tho otnnipotenccof Ood's eter
nal Truth and Love, and of confident, unceasing
reliance in the ultimnto and near victory of Liberty
and Bight over Slavery and Wrongi Tho morning
light Is breaking In glory on every land, Tho dar
kest corners are being mnde bright. Even our own
littlo neglected region enn no longer shut out the
beams of Truth. Tho light that streams upward
in the Eastern sky blesses us too with its holy radi
ance The human heart will surely leap up to that
light and catch its Heavenly inspiration. It will
hero as elsewhere, at no distant day, burst assun
dcrtho fetters of low prtjjodice, and odd indiffcr
enco and hard selfishness. It has hero, as well as
elsewhere, rapacities, and powers and affections
which will generously rcpny tho hand of the culti
vator. But it must be cultivated. Did you only
see with what dr dorahlo assiduity that other kind
of culture is being prosecuted, your soul would
sicken, unless your faith in the perennial goodness
of man and tho over ruling Providence of Uod were
firmly rooted. Iid wo all clearly seo with what
fearful and patient persistence tho wind is being
sown, which will render to tho reaper the whirl

call upon them to uduncc, There nro many sotils
now struggling in tho blackness of moral midnight,
which might bo translated into tho light nnd glory
of Truth at the sound of Mr. rillsbury's voice.
And they mutt get whut thoir souls, unconsciously,
it may be, hunger after. It is our duty, it should

may be induced to come this way again. Tho way
is open and (ha field looks nioro promising than in

LETTER FROM INDIANA.
JAY Co, Indiana, Sept, 1st,1853.
Friend M.vims: I want room in tho Bugle, to
mnko a brief reply to what is said by John 1),
Copcland, in regard to a communication of mine.
I said in that communication, " It seems to mo, that
if Horaco Mann is corroct in asserting tho nnti
slavery character of tho Constitution, that slaves
only hnvo to bo mado acquainted with the fact, U
enable them to ccaso running to tho British domin
ion for protection." So it did, and so it dues yet
secui to mo, that if Horaco is correct in his view of
tho antr-slavcry character of the Constitution) that
they (tho slavos) havo only to bo mado acquainted
with tha fact, &e. And again I said, " Bat Horace
Mann knows that tho Constitution gives to tho
slaveholder certain privileges which enable him to
pursue and capture his slavo in any Stato or Terri
tory into which ho may have fled. It will not, I hwpo,
bo denied by friend Copclnnd, that Horaco Mann is
ignorant of what has been doing undor the author
ity of the Constitution. What, therefore, lifts been
dono iu tho green tree may bo dono in the dry ono,
unless it can be arrostod by tho controling power of
public sentiment. It matters not, with mo, how
tho thing is effected, so that it be pcacnbly accom
plished, as my dosircs are for tho slave's deliverance
from his present bondago.
Tho Constitution is somewhat similar to tho Bi-
blo; that is, it moans just what public sontimcnt
mukes it moan. In regard to what is said by friend
Copclnnd, about the pro-slavery character or anti-
slavery character of the Constitution, in rospcut to
his first inquiry. What clauses mark tho Constitu
tion as pro-slavery T I will say, that Art. 1st, Sec
2d ; Art. 1st, Sea. Oth ; and Art. 4th, Soo. 2d, cm-
hrnco a part of the pro-slavery olnusos,which I think,
mark the Constitution as pro-slnvory as tlio slave
holder could wish ; and tlio Madison Papers show
how theso Articles and Sections here rofcrrcd to,
wcro understood at that day, and by those who
participated in tho discussion that the Constitution
gavo riso to ; nnd I will say, that ono cannot road
thoso papers without blushing with deepest, shamo,
to think what a devilish comproiniso was thon and
thero entered into. Will friend Copoland say, by
what authority tho United States troops woro sent
down into Virginia, to quell Nat. Turner's insurrec
Allow ono more sentiment, and thon I am dono.
And that is, as soon as some Commissioner or
Judge shall decide against the right bf one man to
hold property in man, then slavery will coaso to
exist, and it may be that it is tending to tins point.
God grant it may bo, is my humble prayer, for I
will hail any means that is instrumental in bring
ing about so desirable an object as releasing tho
bondman from his galling chains.
With joy, I romuin at ever, thine in tho cause of
humanity, not wishing to be trammoled by church
or government. J. Y. HOOVER,
Thi Richmond Examiner admits "the molanchol.y
docline of Virginia," but refuses to see in the ex
tensive emigration of pooplo from tho Stuto, a oauso
of anxioty aud regret. In fact, emigration is. a
good thing, and tho flight of inhabitants a blessing
to a country; the only healthy tondency of an agri
cultural region is toward largo estatos and spurso
population; (wnut a pity v irgima should nave more
than ono owner and inhabitant!) thoso who migrate
loave a freer fluid to tho enorgy and industry of
thoso loft behind; industrial enterprises and man
ufactures should not bo much desired by tho South;
nnd it is wholosoin for a Stato to grow slowly, and
havo its maturity roturdedl (Whut a bad country
the ITnitod States must bo to como to!)
