SLAVERY AND SLAVE LAW.
V- r- ... .
Slavery is said toexist in Kentucky in a mild
a form. The mild ami patriarchal character of the
slave laws is well exhibited in tho following trans
action which occurod, it is said, a four days since,
in Covington, opposite this city.
A slave-holder in Virginia some timo since per
mitted one uf his slaves to hire himself out in Cov
ington, on condition that he should pay his master
lX per year for his services. This was faithful
ly performed. The slave married in Covington 11
Jreo woman, by whom he had several children.
At lougth tho master came to Cincinnati, and sent
for the slave to come to him. Of courso the mo
ment ho set foot on Ohio soil by tho consont of his
. master, he was free by Ohio l,w. Jlo' came, and
j. his master contracted with him (ho then a freeman
of Ohio) to purchase, his freedom for $llKJ. Tho
man conseuted and paid his uiiuter on tho spot
'. and subsequently made a payment of is'iO
, more. Tho mnn returned to Covington to his fami
ly, not to bis former owner. A few days since the
master, repenting of his bargain, cuino und seized
. him bim to take him back to Virginia as a slave.
He was resisted, and tho caso brought before a
Kentucky court. Tho decision was that tho man
, was ft sluve, though free by Ohio law and really n
cttixen of Ohio, and entitled to her protection; that
the ontrnot mado with his master was null,, be
cause ft slave is incapable of making ft contract
that he could not recover what he had paid towards
nis ireuuom, oecuuso an u suivo earns neioii
his master and so by this mild patriarchal insti-

Yos. Even the Christian Press prohibits infidels
to agitate it. Aud refuses them its cooperation In
so doing. Docs not the Press see that all discussion
is to be silenced if its late arduous labors against
the iufidel abolitionists shall prove effectual?
The church remains in connection with this atro
cious wickedness, and shields it, and the persons
who are effectually agitating it must be silenced

Dear Marks : Tho Btiglo has come to us rather
late, and no word of progress reported from any of
the agents. The vacuum U however very well
flllod with journrygraphi of your own, jotted down
instrumentalities, but also the ntronir Sliecimetis in
- n- r-
the homo department of anti-slavery service.-
1 ill' j iiuru Been uuu iii'iiru nuw, uoiii iiiu iwunm
agents and tho Editors-at least sufficient of them
to judge of our intentions and character. My
only regret is, that it was not permitted mo to sit
titiitnr von hntnsr In lh (rlopimi eotiveiitinna I
and metings you held there.
But you may be suro we havo not been idle.
The Oriffings and myself, havo held meetings of
some kind, every Sunday, nearly every evening,
and on many week day .4, since w e left Sulcm, on I
tho last of August, lho weather generally, has
behaved itself, as Edmund (Juincy would say, re-
markably well, nearly all the time and the Indi-LjgImi
ana roads, with their unoridged streams, have ueon .
as passable as ever which, it must bo confessed,
is after all, payiug them but a doubtful compli
niont. Cutting our acquaintance for tho present, with
the Hoosicrs, wo re-entered Ohio through Parke
and .Shelby counties, nnd last Saturday nud .Sun
day held meetings at Zannsficld, in Logan comi'y.
Almost for the first time since we left Kulcm, our
success was somewhat impeded by a heavy rain
Still our meetings on Sunday, wore well attended,
wero crowned w ith encouraging success. Wcjtcr
found the Ilolmeses, the l'eimocks and the Mich-j
eucrs, holding fast their faith, in the midst of sur
rounding darkness. They are all Friends, of the
"Congregational'' or "1'rogrcssivo" school, the
only true representatives of Bcnczct and Wooluian .
now left in America.
(Wuext movement was lo Kenton, tho capital i
of Hardin county as yet but tho tprmit of u
town, with the worm of tiro tlintilleriet antl sixteen
ijnujijeric, already preying at its roots. Wo en-
tered tho place with hesitation, but found, especial-j
ly among somo of tho women, a good deal of real
moral vitality. They have espoused tho Temper-1
auce causo with a seal worthy of themselves, and
worthy of the importance of the enterprise itself,
At tho same time, there is much enquiry awakened
on the subject of the rights and responsibilities of
Woman, which is nlrcadv addinir irreatlv to their
strength iu behalf of other causes. Tho late
Women's Convention nt Dayton, was nbly repre
sented from that place and tho same will doubt
less be true again, whenever a Women's Rights or
Temperance Convention is held within any reason
able distance. It is a most cheering sign of the
times, to meet such women as a fow wo found, or
who found us at Kenton.
Our first meeting hnd but a four hour's notice,
and yet tho plaeo was nearly full. Tho Episcopal
Methodists kindly gava us the use of their commo
dious vestry, for w hich it affords mo pleasure to
mnko duo acknowledgments. At the close, there
was a loud cull for us to remain another day. We
had previously made such arrangements as to ren
der this very difficult. Wo however consented,
nnd on tho second evening, our houso was crowd
ed to its utmost capacity. It somehow fell ou me
to occupy tho timo, und I spoku a little moro thun
two hours, to one of tho most ttcntivo audiences
ever assembled. Mrs. (j rifling followed with un
earnest appeal iu behalf of the Bugle. I also
added a few words on the necessities of our move
ment, with respect to tho pecuniary department.
Tho final result was, not ono inhabitant of the
town, man or woman, subscribed for tho papor, or
contributed ono "widow's mito" to tho Treasury.
Wo left early tho next morning, iu a dreary rain
Ltorln having oursolves to pay a not ynry modest
bill at tho Hotel, for tho keeping of our horse.
I trust tho pcoplo were duly thankful for our la
bors, though they did not say so. They however,
paid us tho compliment to urgo us strongly to visit
thorn again. This we muy not havo to do another
time, wholly at our own chargos. Certainly not,
when the women of tho plaeo shall havo achieved
Our prolonged stay at Kenton, gave us a most
dismal rida in tho mud and rain tho noxt day, for
nearly or quite fifty miles. It was only relieved
by n single ray uf suusbino from tho humble log
cabin of our pocrlcss friend, Anson Clement, and
his sister, also a noblo spirit, which we passed
in the foronoon. Wo did not loave our carriage,
as it rained hnrd, but the cheering effect of a cull
ut tho door, and a shako of the hand, lastad us all
day long. Friend Clement lives iu the humblest
and ubscurost manner, but to fow persons is our
cause so much iudubted in all the West : either
for fidelity to principle, or gnnorosity in contribut
ing the "niatoriul aid." I say not, "May he live a
thousand year" for souls like his, never can die.
Yours evor truly,
The following letter from ft friend In Ashtabula
County Is quite descriptive of the tactics, atratogy
and unprincipled maneuvering which marks the
best of our political struggles. It it addressed to
a friend who has handed it to us for publication.
We have bo bope that the election of those imprao-
tioables almost Garrisonions will give any yery
important aid to the anti-slavery cause. If nil the
officers In the State were equally Impracticable,
they could do nothing with publio teutimont, cor
rupt and servile as it is. In our judgment, our
impracticable anti-slavery friends will do much
more to leave sucK" scraniblot" to those who know
no higher meant than politics, and no higher object
than suecess. Let the dead bury their dead. Lei

John II. Qurley, a colored man from Boston, lie
held sumo eight meetings iu this vicinity, and gavo
good satisfaction. Ha appears to be a man of
power aud oloipjcnce. The Anti-Slavery causo in
this county is very fluttering. The small seed that
has been sown by Pillsbury and tho Grifiings, has
tukon root, it has boon watered and nursed by J.
F. Selby, until it has becomo a largo tree, the
branches whereof extend over ft large share of the
wostorn portion of the county, and the pro-slavery
Clergy and laymen are already trying to build
their nests In its branches Thus wo live in hopes
of seeing the day come when its brunches shall not
only extend over a portion of a county, but that
it shall extend from the mountains of snow in the
North, unto the burning paths of the Sun in tho
South, and from the rivors unto the end of the
earth, until all shall become anti-slavery, from tho
least to the greatest.
