ing notice of recent event here,
When we ascertained that you anil Mr. Garrison
wore to he in Weymouth, we applied to tli Com
mittee for tlio Congregational Meeting limine, and
through the influcnco of Rev. Mr. Seymour, the
pastor at Weymouth, it we' obtained; for which,
a you know, we were tlinukfnl. We felt it fo he a
cheering event. Since the meeting we have had
mora tu gladden our hearts in the fact that Mr.
Seymour lias proached a bold and manly sermon to
his people, in wh'n h he mid, in reference to the
Weymouth meeting, " I heard no infidel sentiments;
ml if," laid he, " they are infidel, rot they linve
epokon tho truth, and v0 us Christians were linnnd
to hoar it." That caused my heart to respond,
Amen. If all our ministers would take that ui-;
'tion, our work would be half done. It in a matter
of much rejoicing with me that some of our preach
er are bold, good men. I will tay, our meeting at
Weymouth wu a glorious ouc, an. I a I think, ha

, Clur friend Salisbury will please accept our thanka
fur liia notice of thcio faeti. It i our greatest
pleasure to record such fact an the above. It is
the melancholy duty of abolitionists to expose and
record the unfaithfuluess and recreancy uf minis
tari aa claas, to liberty and justice ' Wheu,
therefore, any out, a Mr. Seymour ha nobly dona,
will aid in giving the truth frccconrae, encouraging

The Fourth Cincinnati Anti-Slavery Bazaar,
closed week before last, on Friday, ami notwith
standing the rain, which fi ll in torrents all the
last day and eveuiug, will fully realize the best
wishe of its friends, tho proceeds amounting to
about a thousand dollar. Our expensca were
trifling, and wo acknowledge thankfully, our in
debtedness u the many kind friends who made
theui so, and who havo so liberally contributed to
this result, both by gieing and buying. Ono fact
should not be omitted, that our own citizens have
givau far more largely and readily than ever before,
some five, ten, fifteen, and even fifty dollar in
goods, or money, and many who havo never done
auything till uow, have gladly answered our call,
aud made us feel that they approved our efforts.
This wo mainly attribute U the increased interest
produced by our convention in the spring.
Our variety was greater, and none the less use
ful than hrttufr, aud wa cannot but hail the
igu uf the times, as presented in those annual
demonstrations, as pointing most encouragingly
tu the "good time coming." About two hundred
dollar worth were contributed by our Massachus
atu friauda. Tho beautiful sea mosses of Mr.
Ashley, of Newburyport, aud the Fuyal Basket
from Mrs. Sarah Russell, of West lloxbury, at
traeto 1 deserved attention nud sold well. Also a
box of delicate and beautiful articles from Mr.
.Shore v. of Doilhain. and one from Mrs. Jowett. ol
Daytun, were gratefully received. Neither must
w forget the nice butter, fruit, aud yarn stockings,
from Wilmington, Ohio, and the contributions in
money from New Richmond, us unexpected as it
was weloome. It would be impossible for u to
enumerate all the friends who have sent us the
nsoful article of every day' consumption, but
we thank thoiii from our hearts, for the slave's
sake, aud cannot too of'.cu remind them how valu
able they arc to us, nud how j.r itel'ully we appre
ciate thorn. Ouc friend said, cn seeing our tine
quashes go off almost before wo could wish them,
that had be known wo wanted tueh things at our
Fair, he could have furnished a table full. Wv
wish all to feel, that we want n good many tablets
full of till mitt if tliingn, which good friends have,
and busy house keeper want, for next year, and
uur food might be doubled. People arc beginning
tu understand us, and lire coming to our sales,
expeiting the homely and solid things there, which
correspond with our staid and stem estimate ol
Right aud Wrong, Justice aud Freedom, and we
must try tu meet th douiaud. Wu have iwvir

surely cannot bo right to do that at our Fair,
which would destroy our character elsewhere.

THE CHURCH OF THE UNITED BRETHREN.
To the Editor nfthcA. S. Bugle:
Piab Frund: Suffer me to make a few observa
tion in regard to the Church of tho United Brethren
in Christ, from which I bad to flee for freedom
When in the church, I mada an effort to introduce
my ultra auti-slavery into the Telescope, but waa
vetoed in the following very significant style : "Too
much comeouterism for a religious paper." Thus
my artiules wero thrust under tho United Brethren,
bushel j a place whera I afterward found myself
just before I fled for liberty. However, notwith
standing I thus speak of the Brethren Church, I
inn far from considering her a sinner ubove all

of her sisters. Yet she i pro-slavery enough to
claim and practically demonstrate her relationship

Tu th EJitur of tht Bugle ;
I deiir to aorract a statement made by J. V .
Walker, through tha Bugla of October 8lh, in re
gard to myself, which reads :
" Finally ha wa arraigned for his abolitionism
and then for his nou-resitancc." Janic no doubt
iu some way received this improssion from my re
mark to him. But it was not the idea I wished lo
convey. I he true statement is, I hey did not dure
to arraign me for my comcoiitcr alsditionistn or
n n-rciit:tnce. Their shurch lute, so indefinite on
on these subjects, wa very plain on the Sabbath
question. Hence, when my senior preacher learn
ed from some of the Brethren, that I differed with
the church on the Sabbath question, I.e demanded
an expression of my view on the question at a
Quarterly Cnnfurencc. For tiutil that time, I had
only expressed myself in private conversation on
tho subject. Thus the Sabbath question wa made
the only legal ground of attacking or arraigning
mo in the church. Yet my honest conviction is
that this attack would never have been uiado, had
it not been for my radical abolitionism and non-resistance.
This mav suffice.
Truly yours. A. P. BOWMAN.

Wm. Lloyd Garrison spoke at tho Freo Church
three times lost Friday. Owing to the heavy rain
the attendance waa small in the day time in the
evening the house was well tilled. Mr. Garrison
advanced none of what are culled his theological

question. His lectures were powerful expositions
of tha duties of citizens, philanthropists and chris
