is to be iu tho Norfolk jail, the wintry days and

What a crime I Why tho Kojoo Islanders, and the

takes rank beside tho meanest and most barbnrous

The Anti-Slavery Bugle, in referring to somo:
cent articles in tfieOhio Star and this paper, says:
"We may be mistaken, but our impression is that
both tho Sentinel und the Stnr, iu common with
many others of the party, have heretofore depreca
ted this merging of the Old Liberty Party into the
Free Soil Party. We havo always understood that
lor tho tw o years last past, it w as the general con'
victiuu of the party that that fusion, by virtue of
which they ul.tiuueJ- tho New iork Barnburner
did not pay. That thereby anti-slavery seutiuient
lotit ground, tu did also their paity. Now these
papers nnd many frecaoilcrs, aro about to repeat
the sniuo blunder if wo understand it, with this
variation. Now, it is with tho Whigs they keck
alliiincc beforo, it was with the Democrats.
l ell, yon aro mistaken. Wo seek no alliance
! '""'i " fyout that doctrine. We wish to make
with Whigs, or any party. We seek no coalition.

principles, an J none other. Nor do wo dosiro
any temporary unions for temporary success. We
will engage in none. The experience of Frec-Soil-cri
with tbo Barnburner iu H4t, ha, not been
lost on us; and wo would tbeieforo act with no men
who are not heartily seeking the furtherance of
frco principles. We believe, from present indica
tions, that 11 general disposition cxista umoug men
who havo acted with Whigs and Locos, to unite in
somo kind of organization against the Administra

of tho Massacre at llloont's Fort, which we copied

that ex'uds between orthodox and liberal cl. iircl.es,
it Is very easy to seo why the latter should find it
much easier thnn the former, to co-operate with
tho Anti-Slavery Society. The theory of the one
scot is, that tho church is a society of good mon,
(of the regenerate,) of tho other, that it Is a so

Tho exclusion of Dr. Prime from the platform of
