ANANYMorsCoMMi-siiCATioNS. Wehnvo received
Van anonymous communiention from somo
. Sclmn, Clark Co., 0., complaining that Mrs. Grif-
4ng had misstated facts, In regard to Free Soilors
in that place. We inform our correspondent that
wo ennnot publish what purports to le fact, on
nimeless authority. Especially wo cannot publish
such alleged facts, when they cull in question others
winch conio vouched lor liy tho siguaturo ot a re
sponsible name, ns in this case.
On Tuesday of last week Mr. Snihh mndc his
opening speech in Congress, which was listened to
with tho most marked attention by nil classes, and
"which provoked a discussion on the slavery ques
..tion dospito its "settlement." We give plnco to
. this discussion to the exclusion of much other niat
i .-. . It will bo found highly interesting and valu-
bl. ' We aro sorry not to be nblo to give a better
"'report of Mr. Smith's speech. The number of the
GUAt on which wc relied for it hns unfortunately
t cot come to hand, so that wo have been obliged to
- dso tho moro meager one of tho Tribune. We shall
perhaps publish it entire hereafter.
'".With tho exception of Mr. Preston, it will bo
- teen that the fnut and most tenluus defenders of
.slavery were from tho North. New York nnd Pcnn-
ijlvania furnish tho champions who arc first in re
pelling assaults upon its enormities.
- Mr. Smith will huve advantages in his Congres
sional discussions which belong to no other of his
predticcssors or colleagues. ' llf- vwh no concer
tiunt. lie, has 110 purty to defend from ultrnUms,
, r from tho chnrgo of purposed interference of sla
very in tho Slates. With Mr. Smith, slavery
without protection. It is nn out-law in tho uni.
Terse, and may be mutilated or destroyed wherever
and whenever found. In a word, ho will din-ins
more as a moral reformer than ns a politician, and
' therefore with neccf earily grcnlcr power to inllu-
, Win. II. Chnnning. who by invitation is preach-
- lug for four Sabbaths to tho Unitarian Church, in
Washington City, (the ono to w hich Mr. Dewey has
.' Ministered) writes to tho Tribune as follows 1
: . Washington, Tuesday, Doe. 20, lfl53.
"Let the friends of freedom in tho Union and
anion J'vr freedom mark to-day with a white stone.
Oerrit Smith has not only spoken but, though on
ly in brief oulliiio, he has unfolded his whole doc
trine of tho higher law and universal liberty; uud
what is moro, l:u has becu liMcucd to with carucx!
attention and cordial respect, and his been an
swer J with manly frankness jet hijih tone.l cour
tesy. The whole scene was an omen that the era
f angry strife between the Free and Slave States
losing, ami that a new era of fraternal co-opera-tiun
in removing tho only tonne of Disunion, has
Mr. Smith's air nnd manner nt onco commanded
the eyes nnd cars of the whole House. His deep
Toice tilled the rutin ; the smile ot Ins countenance
won syinp.it hy; uud the grace and dignity of his no
ble iiorsou bi'ciucd tho symbol of niauiunimity.
As the speech will of course bo reported in your
columns, it is uiincuossnry hero In sketch his argu
ment. It will be seen that hi" declarations of prin
ciple worn uncompromising, bis criticism terribly
sevoro, his a.ixci licit of the claims of duty ns im
partial ns if in tho name of the apostle ho had been
warning his hearers c f their responsibility to the
heavenly Jnde. Uut tho calmness, gentleness,
aud dispassionate lotio with which he spoke, dis
armed anger, and elevated his auditors even those
whom his words most wounded into n severe up
per air of truth, whoro personal jealousies, section
al feuds nnd the meannesses of party politics were
lost sight of nnd forgotten. All recognized in tho
speaker au honest, generous, Christian gentleman,
who strong in tho consciousness of bis own integ
rity, trusted in tho honor of his fellow-mcn.
Aud his confidence was well placed.- As soon
ha was seated Mr. Prcttnn. ot Kentucky, replied
in a speech of great directness nnd force. With
out denying or in any way cavilling nt tho broad
principles of right assorted by Mr. Smith, ho took
the ground of a common obligation resting upon all
the peoplo of the United States to respect tho laws,
institutions and usage of tho several States, in en
tire good faith. All who swore lo support the Con
stitution thereby toslilicd their purpose nnd plegcd
their honor to observe its provisions unequivocally.
What was remarkable in this speoch of Mr. Pros
ion's was tho admission, Identically with that lato
ly made in tho address of the Southern Agricultur
al Convention, that Slavery is a transient stago
society, disciplinary in character and preparing tho
way tor civilization. The speaker showed that,
all nations had in their industrial development
passed up through servitude t-J freo labor, so doubt
less atiuio would eouio when Iho black race, trained,
refined and .educated, would emerge into freedom
by an irrosistahlo yet peaceful process. Ho hinted,
as a horio cherished by himself, that tho negroes
would gravitate to the South moro and more, and
in duo lime, by mingling with the mixed races
Mexico nnd Central America, form a new state
nation, under freo institutions. Mr. Preston was
hoard with respectful interest by nil the Anti-Slu-yery
men in the Houso ; fur they felt that they
were- listening to tho fl unk utterance of sincere cou
ticlions of ahigh-mindud, thoughtful, true man.
May this brief debate provo liu auspicious aug
ury. How soon, how very soon, might this great
nation enter upon a course of policy in which
'emancipation might be introduced by A couiiiNto
MovmxNT of tho Free and Slavoholding States
pot only without violence, disturbance, or injurious
effect upon any class or interest, but with a new,
healthful, strengthening iufluonce folt throughout
every department of the national commonwealth
if only southerners and Northerners would thus
meet each other in a spirit at onco frank and frater
nal. This Union is not to be sundered 1 yot Slnvery
to be removed. Let our watchword henceforth
then, Union for Freedom, Freedom Union
free Union to. ever. w, u. c,
NON-LEGALIZATION OF SLAVERY.
We publish, to-day, artico no. 2 of William Good
ell on this tubjoct. We have always boon a flrjn
believer . in tho supremacy of tho Divine over hu
man law, and we are happy to extend that opinion
and to impress it iueffuceably upon the hearts of
people. It' is the great objoct for which we lubor
from week to week. Because we boliove in this,

To aid us, we shall avail oursclf of such portions
of Mr. Goodell'i argument as seems to us most im
portant and impressive If we aro not mistaken,
his course of argument will lead him pretty effect
ually to nse up one of the most common aqsamente
f TtrJjng anti-slavery men again sftbsir- nnirtPtThg

chnrgo ho considers a gross slander, w ithout found'

may not shnro tho odium of the brand which his
brethren havo endeavored to impress) upon his
forehead. In commenting upon this course, the
Christian Press snys:
The course which has been pursued in regard to
Dr. llcecher illustrates but too well a species of il
liberally which we think prevnils among us to a
greater extent than any other country under tho
heavens. We mean the disposition to bring all
possible means to benr agninst tho reputation and
interests of an individual w ho dares to step aside
from the beaten paths of public opinion, to attack
und destroy if possible, not tho error, if ono, but
10 nilgai 1110 prospects nnu ruin me repuiuuuu oi
tho individual himself, to thrust him beyond the
pale of society nnd crucify bim there.
And yet this is precisely Iho course pursued by
the Press in regard to the Abolitionists. Tho last
six mouths havo witnessed tho most despcrnto and
untiring efforts of the Press to do this very thing.
And no langungo could better characterise its
course, than this which wo copy from its own col
umns. The Editor sees tho influence of this course
when it touches ono of his own party. May ho
learn thereby to make the application to others,
and not to "crucify" every individual who does not
pronounce his rhibutcth of orthodoxy. We think
the Editor might read tho excellent fable, of the
"farmer and a neighboring lawyer," to advantage.

One Idea excludes almost every othor at presont

list is needed to the Wesloyan, and but little is do

Just our case, exactly, Brother Wesleyan, and wo
recommend your remedy to tho friends of tho

furnish a good list of prepaying subscribers. Try
Aud we do hopo our Wosleyan's friends will try
the experiment on their Editor. Their paper is a
good one any way. But large lots of new subscri
