the extension of Slavery in free territory; a ques

NOTES FROM THE LECTURING FIELD.
WEST UNITY, WILLIAMS CO., O
On tho morning after the close of the Convention
at Now Lymo, Mr. Foster and myself started
our Western Field of labor ; being curried on our
way so far as Ashtabtila by our good friend, Mar
ccna Miller. We arrived at the above placo just
in timo to lie too Into for the lightning train, and
had to Witlt till morning.
We passed with tho usual replllltv along the iron
rail, reaching Cleveland just beforo dark, where;
wo met Mrs. Foster, whom we expected to find,
iter hvlth permitted, holding meetings in the city.
This, for suficient rcasoh, she had not been able
do. I staid with my old friend Edward Wall,
next day, when we started for Toledo on board
" Superior," it name which once might hove suited
tho "craft," but certainly nothing could be farther
from the mark now. We had a very unpleasant night
of it. It was dark, boisterous and rainy, slid quite
cold withal. Mrs, Foster suffered a good deal from
sickness, which, with other travel, a good deal
prostrated her. When wo arrived at Toledo,
cars were just starting for tho west via. Adrian.
Tho passengors rushed aboard, and off they went,
leaving their babbage all behind. I preferred
remain with ours, and took the next train.
found our friends reudy to bid us welcome and
earnest as ever ill the cause of freedom.
Miss llollie was in the neighborhood, and had
tured at Adriun the Sunday before, and was speak
ing at other places in tho vicinity. Her services
are highly spoken of by many.
We commenced our meetings at Adrian
Thursday evening, in the "Odd Follows Hull,"
former memory. We held seven meetings, all
which were largely attended some having come
forty miles to attend them.
Tho opponent of the American Society's views
were urgod to take the platform, but none appeared
either in their own defence, or in opposition to
till the close of the Inst meeting, on Sunday night,
whon a mcthodist whig lawyer tried to divert
audience by a talk on our sin of using slave
He was ungontlomanly in his remarks, which
were properly answered by Mr. and Mrs. Fostor.
At this point came Mr. Wellman, a eslcjitn
ister, to the defonce, who made out worso
nothing; finally, howover, agreeing to meet
Fostor in discussion on the voting question.
The Hull has beon re-arranged so as to hold
many more than formerly, and was to tho last,
in fact, the Inst session wns the most crowded.
Our old friends were encouraged and strengthen
ed, while new ones wore mode.
I never saw so many colored friends at the meet
ings at Adrian beforo. They soeincd filled
unutterable joy, as they listened to the earnest
of thoir friends in behalf of freedom,
their demands for justice. My soul yenrns
doepeat sympathy for this afflicted portion of
On Monday I started for this placo, a distance
forty miles, to commence meetings lust evening,
(Tuoaduy.)Kpliruim Rulin and wlfe.kindly offered
bring mo tho whole distance, near fifty miles,
their houso, in their carriage, though it was right
the midst of wheat sowing. But they loft all, and
new roads and a new country, brought me In safety.
Jane Owen, wife of Dr. Owen, whose house is
quarters in Adrian, accompanied them.
I was almost too sick to travel, and utterly
to speak, having taken a severe cold on the
which had resulted in tho worst sore throat I
had. We arrived in the midst of a thunder storm,
but in despite of the floods of rain, we had a
turnout, and will oontiuuo meetings for several
nights. I hope to be able to talk some, bad, though
my throat is. The Fosters were to commence
meeting last night at Hudson.

PUTNAM, Sep. 7, '53.
We are now well, on our way to Indiana and find
plonty of work to do, having hold meetings evory
day or evening since wo loft Salem, at Now Garden,
Leosburgh, Doersvillo and Smyrna. At Doersville,
a village in Harrison Co., we fouud tho Priesthood
and church determined to prevent our holding
mooting there. Even the Wealeyons, with all thoir
professions of liberality and love of Anti-Slavory,
had reveal od themselves by passing a solemn Reso
lution that im should not ocenpy thoir meoting
house. In this feeling, nil denominations Chris
tians, Episcopalians, Baptists, Domocrats, Metho
dists, Presbyterians, Whig. Wesleyans, Freo Boil
ers, and Campbcllitcs, all united, each claiming to
be the especial favorites of God, to whom lie ha
given much UrAell to slander and despise Abolition
ists withotlt stint or measure. 80 general wasthc
opposition thltt the hand bills announcing our meet
ings were torn down, and no meeting housn, hail,
shopi or titeant room could be procured for us, and
the groves adjoining tho town Where meetings are
sometimes held, were also refused. Infidelity was
the great crime charged against u by the priest
hood, and so thoroughly had they eitrlted the church
members agninst us, that tar and feathers and
unmerchantable eggs, were freely spoken of as the
arguments they should bring against hs, if we pre-
sistcd in holding. It meeting In the place, and hd"
tliey not "ftarlJd the peoplo," we have gool reason
to think they would have thus opposed us.
Bui We were not to be turned asldo from our
pUrposo by such demonstrations, well knowing that
ever such discouragements, Anti-Slavery always
Urinnitiha. After renenl.wt refusal from timid
fj t......ln ..iffieient tn-lhe

having large, intoll.gent and Attentive ladienccis
to whom we pointed out tho wrongs of slavery
and the reason why this curse is continued in this
Inndof meetinghouses, and ministers, and members
of churches. Tho bnlance of our meetings were
effective in opening the eyesof U.e peoplo to see
tne true value oi tneir religion, wnicn, not content
with forbidding us to plmd for tlie slave in their
houses, boasted that we should lo mobbed and
driven from the place. But the humanity of "tho
world" triumphed over the churches, and gave us
an opportunity to exercise tho right of free spwh
in pleading for the slave, tihhiolested. We cordi
ally invited any in opposition to UK, to our plntform
for the discussion of our principles And measures,
but thoso who were most violent agninst us before
we came, were most quiet while we wcro there.--During
tho afternoon, one of the ministers of the
place ventured to come on horseback into our con
gregation, to look upon us and tho peoplo, and heard
a littlo truth whichl hope mny benefit him. Mr.Pills-
birry wna speaking of tho pro-slavery character of

and then turned his horse and fled, as though he
feared the dcvclopcmcnt.

a combination that especially fittod him for the task
ho had undertaken, and if a personal exhibition of

its possession in a most eminent degree. W e Wcro,
told he was a student lsth of the Law nnd the
Gospel, having hot yet determined to which prufo
sion he should attach himself. But, as he declared
we wore indebted to the Law rather than Religion,
that we were not inoblrt'd and driven from the place,
it is presumed that his predilections will lead him
from tho law down to tho ministry ,as there lessof tal
ent, honor.honesty And anti-slavery will be requisite
to give him a tolerable standing among his associates.
At tho close of our meeting, we obtained a number
of subscribers to tho lluglo, and parted with the
friends, feeling well assured that into good ami
honest hearts, the seed of truth had been sown that
will ultimately bring fortli an abundant anti-slavery
Our next mooting was at Smyrna, appointed
permission of tho Trustees, In the M. K. McCtinjs-1
house. At tho hour for meeting we wont thcr
d agninst , and were informml
nnd found it closed against us,
mat one oi inc i rusiocs wno naa pronusoa our menus
tno nouse, nan tnxen possession ot tne Key anu
gone to his home some miles distant, so that we
could not occupy it. But this trick, religious to
Was, did not prevent our holding meeting. A large
coopcrshop in the village was soon proposed, and
we held our meeting in it. The owner promised
it to lie for meeting tho next day and evening, nnd
unlike tilt) Methodists, kept his Word and granted
us tho use of his houso as he had promised, leading
us to conclude that a common cooper is a better
man than a lying Methodist.
Tho fact of our propagating Infidel sentiments
given as the reason why we are thus treated, and
yet tho very persons who raise this cry ngainst us,
will attend our meetings and interrupt us in our
Anti-Slavery work, with questions on " Infidelity,"
and by evory means in thoir power, endeavor
make us avow some sentiment of which they can
thus complain, and become exceedingly mad against
us, because we always refuse to discuss any ques
tion not legitimate to an Anti-Slavory meeting.
During our meetings here, tlie ministry repeatedly
interrupted us and annoyed the Audicneo, with their
efforts to mado us do that which they doclurcd they
did not wish us to do. But their efforts only had
effect of exposing their hypocracy and making
immorality of their religion more manifest, demon
strating most clearly that it is not infidelity they
fear so much a an exposition of their own pro
aluvcry connexions. It is trutli alone that they fear,
and this whon plainly declared Will do away their
influence for evil,
In this vicinity is a good field for Anti-Sluvery
labor, and hero, too, are some good lalsirers, and
to the homos of the Stools, Stantons, Dulhins and
Browns, the friends of the sluvo will ever find
hearty welcome G.
