f.ioHi aa to " what ia tho mind of God on tlie death
penalty." His address was altogether tlio moat
brutal and bloody defense of capital punishment,
which wo have ever listened to, or read of. He, of
Course, bossed bis argument mainly upon the Bible,
the command or precept given to Noah, " Who
ao aheddeth mmi'a blood by man, shall his blood
bo shed, c." Ho claimed that thia precept ia atill
in full force, aa when it waa given, and commended
the Jewish aystem of capital punishment aa being
the tnoat perfect possible, and tho moat effectual for
tho prevention of murder that lina ever existed 1
Tho inferenco of course ia, that thin " law of Ood"
should be " ro-cnacted." Tho precept referred to
required man's blood " at hand of every biaat,
and at tho hand of man." Thus it clearly dot lares,
and thus Jews understood and obeyed it, in tho
system which he so highly commended. Hero is '
separate provision mado for manslaughter or in,
in the accond degree. Deulh is tho penalty j
for all alike to beaut as well as man. To this was
conformed tho practice of the Jews ; and it this
precept is binding now, it requires the aaino of
'christians, and Mr. Dixon knowt it ; for wo will not
supposo him a fool. Vet, when asked by Mr. Jones
Tit the conclusion of bis address, whether bo was in
favor of carrying out tho precept by inflicting the
VlOath penalty f t manslaughter, murder in the sec
ond degree, ore, lie answered, " Only for murder in
the first degree 1" Thus after proving last winter,

. a disposition always the most active in tho most

promptings that induce tho humano to " deal gent

pravity. It is to be hoped that tlie committco who have

NEW ENGLAND CORRESPONDENCE.
CONCORD, Mass., 20th Nov., 1853.
Dkar Mariis: One of tho first things of w hich
I made record 011 my return last year from the
Wost, was that 0110 of tho lotion Theatres had
ventured to bring upon the stago a full dramatic
renrcscntation of L'nclc Tom's Cabin. Wo all hail
ed it as a glorious sign of tho times. For one, 1
hastened to witness its performance going on the
vory first night of its. presentation and, though
there were some things w hich I ventured to criticise
and even went ao far as to respectfully suggest to
tho proprietor sonic changes that it seemed to 1110
he might make, to give the representation more
. truth und lifo, without injuring its popularity, still
on the wholo, tho auti-slavery portion of the com
munity were ulmost fully satisfied, and such a rush
as there was for more than a hundred nights to that
Museum, was never beforo heard of in America.
This year, as well as last, I'nclo Tom has built
his Cabin on tho boards of tho National Theatre,
in Now York, as indeed in almost all the princi
pal Thoatros in tho Northern States ; and when at
length tho people m New York city will be satisfied
with nothing clso, Barnum himself has pushed
aside bis Dwarfs and Giants, Mermaids, Boarded
Women and Wolley Horses, und introduced Undo
Tom, Topsey and Little Eva in their stead. But
lie has borrowed tho same representation that was
given last year in Boston, and tho glorious result
is, that it is so behind the demand of the times
and of the performance ut tho National, that it is
severely condemned as a mere "catering to south
ern prejudice," a " gross carricaturo of negro pocu
liurities," false to the book itself, and still morouu.
truthful in its delineations of slavery.
To all such criticisms I most cheerfully subscribe
,iu year. But in 1852, my yoico went w ith others
in approving, on tho wholo, precisely the same
thing which, with the advanced stato of public son.
iiraent, we now censure, and even condemn. It is
.capVtal, is It not? to turn from the churches to the
Theatres, to see tho advancing and improving con'
.dition of the public mind and heart, The poor old
.church plods along, round and round, like a horse
in a cider-mill, tugging at her total deparvity, wa
ter baptism and wiuo bibbing sacraments. She
curses the drama, anathematises dancing ana
amusements of almost every kind, and sours and

worlds were made, Bibles writton, Prophets inspir

CORRESPONDENCE FROM MICHIGAN.
ANN ARBOR, Nov. 20, 1853
My Dear Friend: I havo, for some weeks past,
been trying to find timo to say a few words through
iho Bugle, of tlio Btato of anti-slavery affairs iu
Wc little dreamed when wo came hero, of the
things which have befallen us. Of course, we
never calculate, beforo baud, what form and shape
the opposition may assume ; that would bo vain.
Wo well know, however, that opposition in some
shape must come.
Wc knew that thero vvus one Free Soil paper in
tho State, and as tho papers of that stamp, in Now
England, the Middlo States, and in the West, so
far us wo were acquainted with them, were cither
friendly in tho main, or disposed to bo silent iu
regard to tlio American Anti-Slavery Society, wc
ked for the Detroit Free Democrat to act the part
of civility, at least, towards us. However, on ar
riving hero, and learning that Alunson St. Clair, of
New Organization" memory, wiis lecturing for
tho Freo Soilers of Michigan, and hearing from thu
lips of one nf the most activo and devoted of tho
party, that their paper had so frequently and meanly
slandered tho friends and agents of our Society
that ho had decided not to nid it any further, though
he had, on its starting, obtained somo hundred
subscribers for it, I say, in loarning those facts,
wo had no reason to anticipate any word of wel
come or courtesy oven.
Your readers havo seen tho reception it gave Mr,
Foster and myself, but they havo not known of its
subsequent courso, I presume
tained several most bittor and malignant attacks on
Mr. Garrison since he was there, one of w hich has
appeared in tho weekly. I will sond you a weekly
coiituiuing two articles on Garrison and his co-ad-,
jutors. Tho comments on tlio resolutions 01 the
colored peoplo of Detroit, ure said by those who
ought to know, to be from tho pen of St. Clair,
You will perceive by tho weekly, that although
copies the lying comments 011 tho resolutions which
wore copied in tho daily, yet in its truo spirit it re
fuses to publish tho rosolutiuns. I do not under
stand why those resolutions have not boon published
in the Buglo. Or rather why Me resolutions passed
by a meeting of the colored people of Detroit, in
defense of Mr. Garrison and ourselves against tho
attacks of the Free Democrat, huve not beon pub
lished in tho Buglo, as the mooting yotod their
publication in your papor. Have you not roceived
them f Tho Democrat published a sot of garbled
resolutions in its accustomed spirit, stating that
they wero the resolutions of the meeting alluded to
above. It is worthy of note that tho people com
posing the meeting were mainly if not wholly
Free Soilers, or tho friends of thnt party, and yet
their paper refuses to publish their resolutions en
tire, although purporting to do so.
We loam, too, that a lady of Detroit, who knows
Mr. Garrison, and felt it her duty to defend him
against the slanderous attacks of the Democrut(
sent an article to that paper wlucn was reiurea ad
mission, hut which was afterwards admitted to the
columns of the Detroit Tribune. And this is the
Fret Deraoorat. Stealthily it binds its victims,
then stabs thum, and when their friends attempt
defense, they are astonished to find themselves
hound also. 'Free! aye, freel! The freedom ao

I believo there aro many honest members of the
Free Soil party in thia State, who will scorn to sus-
tain a paper professing to be fighting the battles ol i
freedom, while pursuing a course that even the
most nro-slaverv tianer ouaht to scorn, and will!
acorn, if one apark of honor lurks in its character.! W
Application has recently been made for the City
Hall, in Detroit, fur Mr. Foster and myself to cive
another course of lectures, but it has been .lonicl '
us. Yet St. Clair has had it, and I presume can
again have it. In the language of Whittier,
devil knows his own."
We hnvo been holding meetings since tlio State

Northville, and Salem. I wish 1 had time to give

Wo are credibly informed that Mr. Henry B.
Stanton, of this Stato has hecomo connected with

in the course of which he has variously figured as
an Abolitionist, a loader of the Liberty party, a
Freesoiler, a Barnburner and a pro-slavery Demo
crat, by assuming tho functions of a lobhy-ngont
and biiyor-up of newspapers and Congress-men,

transfer of money from tho pockets of thoso w ho

With regard to this great projoct of a Pacific

were assigned the northern route, have reported
most favorably concerning It, not ouly with regard
to the fnvorablo surface of the country, but also in
regard to its beuuty and fertility. '
