murmur ran throuirh the irnllcrv. and a smile went

the abolitionists in his pamphlet on slavery. Mr.
Garrison, in the Liberator, had rejected the censure
and here they were, slinking hands in tho Senate
This isdcscribnd with dramatic effect, which un
fortuuataly, is wholly dissipated by tho truthful
statement, that, when lr. Cbanning took me by
the band, it was only an act of ordinary civility on
his part, as he did not catch my name, 'and did' not
knuw me personally; and therefore, muit nothiny
at ull by tt. Nn interchange or opinions took place
between us, on that occasion. If, aftorwurds, on
ascertaining distinctly who it was that had been
introduced to, himho remarked that 'he was no) the
less happy to have shakhon hands with' 1110, I can
only say, that never, at any subsequent period, to
the hour of his death, did be intimate a desire to
see me again; and noitber by accident nor design
did we ever again meet each other, face to face.
The truth is, I was no favorite of lr. Channing,
at any time. He never gave uis one word of coun
sel or encouragement, lie never invited me to see
him, that he might understand, from my own lips,
my real feelings and purposes, and uil'ord mo the
beuefitofhis experiouco nnd advice. My early,
faithful, clear-sighted friend, Prof. Pollen, tried to
induce him to make my acquaintance, believing it
would be mutually serviceable; but he never mani
fested any dosire to do so, Of this, I nevor made
any oomplaint, My solf-respect and strong seuse
of propriety would not allow me to thrust myself
upon hisattontion, or the notioe of any other public
man, I do not think he cherished toward me any
personal uukinduess-fsr from it. But my modo
of dealing with slavery and its abettors was very
distasteful to him; and between my philosophy of
reform, and his own, there was a very great dfffer
ence, -the dlfferenoo between principle and senti
ment, between calling men aud things by thoir
right panics, and dciiliug in abstractions, between

I 'Some time after. Isaac traded with another boy
for a squirrel taken from the nest before its eyes
were opened, no inado a bed ot moss lor it, and
fed it very tenderly. At first, he was afraid it
would nut live: but it seemed bealihv. thou eh it
never grew so largo as other squirrels. He did
nut put it in a cage ; for he said to himself that a
creature made to frisk about iu the green woods
could not be happy shut up in a box. This pretty
little aiiimul became so much attached to her kinu
heartod protector, that sho would run about after
him, and come liko a kitten whenever he called
her. While he was gone to school, sho frequently
ran off to the woods and played wiih wild squir
rels on a treo that grow near his path homeward.
Sometimes she took a nap in a large knot hole, or,
if tbe weather was very wmin, made a cool bed of
leaves across a creun oi mo nougiis, ana sicpi
there. When Isuuo passed under the tree, on his
way home from school, he used to call 'Bun! Bun !
Bun I If sho was there, she would come to him
immediately, run up on bis shoulder, und so ride
home to gut tier supper.
'It seemed us if animals were Iu some way
aware of his kindly feelings, and disposed to re
turn his confidence; for on several occasions they
formed singular intimacies with him. When he
was six or seven years old, he espied a crow's nest
in a high tree, aud, according to bis ubuu! custom,
ho climbed up to make discoveries, . Ho found
that it contained two eggs, and he watched the
crow's movements uutil her young ones wore
batched aud ready to fly. Then he took them
homo. One was accidentally killed a few days
after, bat he reared the other and named it Ci'PiD.
The bird became so very tome, that it would feed
from his baud, porch on his shoulder or his hat,
and go every where with him. It frequently fob
lowed him for miles, when he went to mill or mar
ket. He was nevor put into a cage, but flew in
and out of the house, juU as lie pleased. . If

Kentucky borders on Ohio, a Irco State, whore the

THE COLORED NATIONAL CONVENTION.
The proceedings of the National Convention of
Free People of Color, held at Koehester, the litli,
Tth and Kth days of July last, hav? been published
iu pamphlet form, and invite n newod ottcntitin.
Our correspondents who auuudvd its sessions gave
somo sketches tit the time, but subsequent infoiir-si
tion loads us to believe that they failed to assign -iis,
due prominence to the most encouraging aspect of
:his(ir.t astc oblate Lit represent itive. national ret -vcutionofourfcllow-cit'xonscf
African deicent. What
seemed to slriko them most forcibly was the orator
ical ability and skill in debate there exhibited.
They represented, and concurrent testimony corrob
orates, their staloment, that this Convention, though
a smaller body, demonstrated quite as much talent
or this sort as an ordinsry House of Representatives,
'J'b's, however, is little more than we looked for.
T;e fervid constitution of the Ancap is adapted to
oratory ; his ntTccliuiiate nature Udevelopsil beyond,
that of the white, aud his capacity for ipressioa
mere oommand of words seems also in excess.. It
must be considered, moreover, that thi body un
doubtedly included tbe very best specimeus Of the.
dark-hued citiscus, while the House, of Representa
tives wen, we aro opt prepared to say a, Junes; in
its behalf. . -
Ths vtiaf question in regard to ths Convention
related to its practical ability to its power to detect
the esseuiial wanta in the condition of the, Bt)upl4
whom it represented, and the ooursge, ausigy and '
perseverance it oould bring into action for supply
ing them, That its members could talk well ws
of small consequence, if they could - not cccftt
nise plans, and combine heartily for tU5i t.ytkn
i by sacrificing the pride of opinion ai the desire
lor personal distinction Bhd ouicial prominence
which might be expected to be active and exacting
in a class which has such rare opportunities for in.
dulging in those luxuries as tho free r.egioes. s If
one win reflect hew many escape-valves s s.i(i
havo for gat, he will the better estimate the rbk of
explosion where the vents are so very fow as (bos
provided forth man of color. Think of our militia
system, for e.raiiiplc, and bow disastrous it would
prove, If all the conceit, ana lust et fommtyn,r, mat
are hlWn"off harmlessly through that ehsneel,
should be pent up to swell aud foster until thoy
found relief when men met to ortrsnia combina
tions for carrying bn the serious business of life, '
Think what a glorious chsnee this Convention re
sented for men to show off thoir vanity, their fbv
of power, their pig-headed obstinaey., -who had
