Pr.va Sirs: My father, Samuel Lewis, has received
a letter requesting his presemo nt your Annual
Annivercary, at Philadelphia, on the 3d nnd 4th of
Mr. Lewis's health will prevent him fromleavine
home nt present, while a severe attnek of illness
prevents hnn even answering your letter ill the
manner ynn suggested.
Ho wishes me, however, to say, that his opposi
tion to Shivery and the spirit that sustains it is still
uncrossing and uncompromising. He never ex
pects to cease in his exertions to banish it from the
land, w hilo ho lives, or until it is driven entirely
from our border. The time has come when Chris
tiana, whether in tho organized church bodies or
out of them, matt, it obedient to the faith, rally in
defence of Uod's truth and humanity, in opposition
to oppression of every kind and every w here.
Yours tor the cause of humanity,

My beloved Friends in tho cnuso of universal

sinco it wns my hnppiness to address you on the

Tw enty years of patient, persevering and enduring
toil in tho hnppy service of the God of Love.
Twenty years cf persecution and defamation, w ith
all manner of evil spoken fnlsely of you for the
name's sake of Him who pities (he poor nnd desti
tute. Taking joyfully tho spoiling of -our goods,
and the jeopardy of your lives, tho ciecrntion of
tyrants, and the anathema; of a liirelini? priesthood,
you have been thus far sustained by Omnipotence
shielded in the hour of danger, nnd cheered onward
with the promises of Him w ho ennnot lie, thnt Truth
(nnd your causo is Truth) shall finally triumph
over every obstacle, whether it procrecd from the
grosser forms of vice, or from the phylacteries of
wnnt nas ncen emphatically called "American Chris
tianity." The Wd nnd Master, in addressing the
latter class, said, that " Publicans nnd hnrlots shall
enter (be Kingdom before you." What do wo see T
Tho Church (with eomo happy exceptions), which
has shut up her bowels of compassion, deaf to the
wailing of millions of the human brotherhood not
more unworthy than themselves, and dumb in the
cause of those appointed to destruction; therefore
she is losing her moral influence in the world, and,
from her time-serving policy, sinking in the estima
tion of common honesty. Vet, in her God-defying
position, to cover her own shnmc, she points at you
with the finger of affected scorn, and with a men
dacious tongue cries " Infidel." Would to God that
the charge could be retorted, with fearful renlily,
and tremendous power! Again she shouts "Athe
ist!" So did the idolaters of Home to the primitive
Christians, because they would not worship their
gods. Hut the practical Infidels nnd Atheists are
those who handle the word of God deceitfully, who
honour Him with their lips, but in works deny Him,
and his power defy. They form a league with the
enemies of God and man. They deceive the South
by false representations of their best friends. They
deceive the Xntion by representing those who would
exnlt it in righteousness ns enemies of their race.
Hut whnt do we noir sec ? When the professed
friends of the Redeemer nre false to their trust, He
innketh the wrath of men to praise lliin. The Fu
gitive Law, black as the fit with moral pollution, is
working a mighty change. The Theatre, too, bur
dened, like Biialnm's nss, with the sins of the
nation, now with tho tongiio of humanity rebukes
the madness of the prophet! ns in various places,
Undo Tom's Cabin, with all its thrilling heart

breaking the chnms ot Slavery. Lastly, if human
testimony is of nny value, you hnve coadjutors

I cannot close this letter without expressing my
joy at the successful and happy results of the first
lectures given in the Slavo States by thoso excellent
women, Lucrctin Molt nnd Lucy Stone. Much of
the miirhty work of reform is, I believe, yet to be
accomplished by woman disenthralled from ages of

AVji. I.t.ovu Garrison Dear Sirs I have receiv
ed your letter of tho lUth instant, inviting me to be
present at the twentieth Anniversary of the form
ation of tho American Anti-Slavery Society, to be
held in Philadelphia, on tho third and fourth De
cember next. For this distinguished and unmerit
ed honor please accept iny sincere thanks. Most
gladly would I be with you, nnd avail myself of
tho cnllioiic invitation oi your Society to occupy its
platform, untrammelled in regnrd to thought or
speech." Nothing could afford me more heartfelt
gratification than to imbibe afresh the rosoluto pur
pose nud martyr spirit of our great movement, by
u friendly communion with its heroes; and it is
therefore with unfeigned regret thnt I find myself
precluded by other engagements Horn attending
Tho object of your Society is "the speedy and
eternal overthrow of chattel Slavery in our land."
The magnitude of such a work requires a faith in
thoso who undertake it cominensuruta with its
achievement. They must have faith in Providence)
in Iteetitinle, in tlio triumph of tho tight through
the sincere strivings of men. - All good cuuses lag
and languish through lack of this Inith, through a
lurking suspicion, wliich finds its way into our
hcartsrthat Injustice is a necessity undir the goy-
eminent of the Most Hiith. If we really believe
in the truths to which wo subscribe in words: if.
in our judgment, we could find but "one strong
thing in this earth, the just thing, the true thing ;"
if wo could fully realize that justice is omnipotent,
and that Slavery and evory othor refuge of lies
miW perish because opposed to tho beneficent or
dainments of the Universe; and if men everywhere
would acknowledge and pructicully apply these
truths, humanity would be redeemed from its woos,
aud the iiiillcuiiil dny would be ushered iu upon the
world. Hero lies the grand difficulty with our
movement. There are even many professedly Anti
Slavery men, who, I believe, are scarcely half con
verted, who manifest no confidence in the power of
trutht they profesi, by efforts or sacrifices for their
advancement, and whose hearts falter and grow
cold w bey the aigna of promise are all around their
pathway. For uiysolf, I believe the Providence of
(led, availing Itself of the blindness and wicked-
ness of men, is hastening on a great crisis in the
history of our country, and that the causo in which
we are engaged is passing through a transition pe
riod, from a feeble and unpopular to a powerful and
dominant movement, nmong the great forces that
are slinking the world.
This opinion is based upon facts which, to tome,
indicate tho decline of freo principle. The pas
sage of the Compromise measures, not more thnn
three year Unco, and the decree which simultane
ously went forth that there is no hiirher law than
the wicked enactments of men ; tho preachings of
muiniuiiinous neaps oi lower law aormons. anil tnc
joining bands of Castle .garden politicians and
atheistical doctors of divinity in the endeavour to
dethrone Jehovah and inaugurate the Deril in his
stead ; the holdingof grand Union meetings through
out tho country, after tho Union had been already
saved by the plasters and nostrums of its political
doctors ; the calling out of the Army and Xavy by
the Federal authorities to assist in the return of a
fugitive slavo, and the effort to drag from the grave
if tyranny and foist into our jurisprudence tiie in
fernal doctrine of constructive treason ; the cold
blooded conspiracy of the Whig and Democratic
parties last year at Baltimore, against republican
ism, humanity, and God ; the recent case of John
Freeman at Indianapolis, and tho recking villainy
of the Marshal of Indinna in stripping the body of
his victim so that a Christies squad of perjured
miscreants and kidnappers might swear according
to the pattern, which they did ; the still more re
recent CBse of William Thomas at Wilkcsbarre,
set on foot by blood-thirsty assassins acting in the
name of tho Government, and the heartless and
high-handed judicial ruffianism ol Judge Cirier;

fruits of tho slnvo power appealing to the hearts

institutions must grow to their full stature, and
display all their diabolical enormity, before men

We should not desire to hnve Satnn act with a nru-

sido or disarm its opposition, by disguising himself
in me urnpery oi uueency. ici nun show his clo
ven foot, nnd make palpable the fact that he Is a
devil, nnd his empire will be subverted.
Herein should the enemies of Slavery thank Ood
and take courage. We have unmasken the dragon.
We havo shorn it of its long-permitted immunity
from the right of search, and compelled it to stand
up in its unveiled ugliness before the judgement
seat of the world. The slave interest itself has ho.
eomo a most efficient helper in its own destruction.
It unhallowed rule has at length set the world to
thinking, it great heart to beating, and its great
voice to agitating. The Anti-Slnvsry spirit has

is tho strongest power on enrth. It is remorse
lessly breaking into fragments the great political
parties of our country, and at the same time extend
ing its dominion into tho churches and hierarchies,
which it wiil cither purify or scatter to the four
winds as a preliminary to the establishment of
other systems, wherein shnll dwell righteousness.
These facts, and the glorious future of which they
give promise, should animate us with courage, con
stancy, nnd nn unfaltering faith, in our continual

those who constitute tho American Anti-Slnvery
Society, will not be blinded or disheartened hy

On Thursday last we left the Buglo in the hands
of our good wife, who plays the jtro tern quite fre
quently of late, and a brief ride brought ut to
Massillon, where we spent a few houn at the Roach
School. This is an institution founded tome years

tlio hands or her friend Arvino Wales, who used
this talent like his own, so as to increase ereatlv
its vulue. Ton years ago the institution commenced

180 odd acres, with a barn and two story brick

Dawly't tkillful management, has an nppenrsnc of
thrift Wliich would be commendable to any agricul
turist in the countTi It is cultivated, mainly, by
Mr. D. and his pupils. This year they have nearly
900 bushels of excellent wheat nnd more than 1000
bushels of corn, which wilt servo to show that at
least they are industrious in labor, which they com
bine with daily study and instruction.
It is the purpose of tho Hoard to accommodate
forty pupils, males and females in equal numbers,
to receive and grmluato ten each year, allowing
four yenrs for a course of instruction. No pupil
aro received at an earlier age than 12 years. It is
contemplated that their four years pupilage will
give them'the elements of a good common educa
tion, as well as of agricultural and horticultural
labor, thus laying the foundation for a useful life
in whatever 'department of business they may
choise to engago in future.
It was a grand conception by Mrs. Koaeh. The
institution stands a monument of her humanity and
wisdom, and its management has not been, lesa
creditnhle to Mr. Walo and to Mr. nnd Mrs. Dawly.
It takes a class of neglected, homeless orphans,
many of them of most unfortunate origin, who,
under circumstances of ordinary and inevitable
neglect nnd ill treatment would grow up in ignor
ance and degenerate into criminal it gives tuch
a home, industrious habits, intellectual culture, and
moral training. Of course somo of them ill never
bo redeemed from their unhnppy orgnnitntion and
early habits and training ; but many will. We
conversed with some there, who, to our judgment,
givo as high promiso of future usefulness at any
youths of our acquaintance.
One circumstance is romarkable, and speaks well
for the physical organisation of this class of chil
dren, as well as for their careful management.
Not a singlo death has occurred in the institution
during tho whole time of its operation.
Like most other places along the line of Railroad'
has suffered a chango in its business, though not
a diminution. It is not now crowded with wheat
wagons as formerly, but its mechanical and manu
facturing interests are increasing, and the erection
of new buildings shows a quiet and sure prosperity.
A large amount of wheat from the west it here
transferred from the railroad to the canal, and by
it pnsscs north via. Cleveland to New York.
At we wore in tho bar-room of the hotel at Mas
tillon, two rather loafing looking citixona came In,
with looks as thirsty as if they had just arrived
from tho Dcsort of Sahara, and said, with swagger
ing air "Landlord, we will tako a little." Very
modest such men nre, no matter how raging their
thirst or how greedy their maw, they want but
" little" But alas, even modesty in this case could
not get that " little." Said the landlord, " We hare
none." "What, not a li'f" said Thirsty, with
eyes rolling in despair. " Not a bit, wo hare
pnssed tho Maino Law." " the Maine Law I"
muttered one, and turned in sullen disgust, with
rnpid strides for the door. "I nppmve the prin

This latter, we presume, was a hater of slavery
in the abstract, like a pious Doctor of Divinity
who would be flesh, fish or fowl, as would suit the
company while tho former would represent well,
a good, pious, Baltimore platform Whig, who would
viudicato slave catching from the Constitution, and
slavchdldiug from the Bible, nnd do it above board
and "care nothing for nobody." We liked the sulky,
thirsty independence of the former, which said,
" I'll have my horn whether or not," as much as
no despised tho cowardly meanness cf the other,
who could violate his own convictions, and then
boast of the suppleness of his morality. . .
