For the Anti-Slavery Bugle.
On board Steamship A upturn,
.I.Bt. Si" 40' north, Long. W. 3
January Li, 1854.
I'EAR iriind Jil ARILS! r.xccpt to moko a
brief entries in my memorandum, I am doing my
first writing since losing sight of land, to day.
My first latter was to my loved ones nt homo. My
second i to you and tho rcadors of tho Bugle.
None surely have highor claims, to gratify, no oth
er could givo me higher pleasure. At sunset I
look often to the west and say, this sido of that
goldon cone is New England, nnd beyond N'ew
England 1 Ohio, with those adjoi.iing states, where
liyo those I most lovo on earth, or of created bo-
"J wooro cisc ami mat guucu uiisct
cone, I just the frame with which I would sur-
round such a picture.
And so I gaxo nt my gorgeous vision. You will
know, dear Marius, whether yoa lovo your friends,
wjiou thrco thousund miles of wutery wilderness
shall separate you from them. And then too, if
nwful sea sickness shall havo tcizod and bcuud
you down day after day, until you scarcely care
how loon tho frail plank that partitions you from
eternity shall split asunder. You will thou know
whethor a smile, a kind look, ft cheering word, or
oft soothing hand of inmo cherished spirit, would
impart bliss or not lo your saddened soul, rout
suffering body. But to-duy, the terror and tor
ment of sea sickness arc past, nnd triumphantly
l ireaa oiu ocoan under my leet. 1 litis is one
victory after another secured oniy by patient en
durance. So far, my voyngo ha been attended with less
conos of oxcilcmcut than could have been expect
ed. We have had ninny squall of hail and snow,
indeed no day has been without them. But a
severe gale has not crossed our path. No "billows,
mountain high," haio coino near us. Scarcely
lias a wave broken ou to our docks at all never to
nny b-idy's inconvenience. Tho action of our ship
has not been rearing nnd pitching I'.ko an untamed
colt, but rolling from sido to side liko a log. 1
should have liked iho other motiou belter, ijomc
day tho rolling has been so violent, as that every
dish on the table, and overy candle had to bo con
fined, and tabic and settee of course, screwed
fast to the floor. And then you hud t) watch well
your tea and coffee cups, your praties and unices,
or they would all be leaping into your lap, ns
familiarly as a family of playful kittens.
But tho su dimo grandeur of tho ocean itself, if
a thenio for contciuplutii n, thoi ch r.ot for descrip
tion. N'ono who appreciate it w ill daro attempt to
uuscal its mysteries. To inu Columbus hns become
a rout, not a fabled Neptune, and I contemplate
him a indeed almost a god. To plough the pnth
lcs surface crcn now, in wintry storm and tem
pest, in dark as well as day, is work for heroic
men. But what was it when that rash adventurer
dared defy it then unknown perils, and feel his
doubtful wny over thousand after thousand of
before unmeasured miles, with men more mutinous
than the waves, in search of unothcr world, in the
existence of which, nono but ho had even faith
much less know lodgo or-description. Before, it
had ruled undisturbed, its nwful empire, as its
billow and the ages rolled on together. Such
deed of daring, it had never frowned upon till
tbon, at least for unknown generations. Suroly it
ought to li no surrendered at discretion, a it did.
No wonder it boro the conquering hero to tho boon
he sought. - In him, subliiiio greutnes met its
equal, and imiro than equal, nnd loyally it yielded
the sceptre. Tho riddle of tho .Sphinx was solved,
and its mysterious power was Buriendored forover.
I have loved tho ocean long and well. Many
havo asked me on your sido of tho AllcghouicH,
why I would imt remain in tho West. My answer
lias ever been, I am a child of the sea, and long to
be near my mother. But tho has rather tlejt-muth-
trcd it over mo on this my first fondling, with her j
ever heaving bosom. And I havo almost vowed
, ... , , , i. i'i
revenge upon her at times, and determined to hide
out or ner eignt in tne uoopest vaiioy ot tno west.
But to-duy with a ausliino nnd calm, like a New
England May, she is rocking mo so gently, and I
feel o well, and strong, and vigorous, that she ha
convinced and conquered me. And she makes mo
believe fully, that I am indeed better fur whut I
have suffered that her medicinos, though harsh
.to take, are yet most efficacious; and she after ail,
fthe Quoen of this grand systom of Hydropathy.
'Thi 1 my first letter to the Buglo, on my For-
.eign Tour. I dare not promise you many, but on
4he other hand. England 1 not rich enough to buy
out Uie.plfaMJto ruy conuejiou with my western
fr'touds through it columns, gives me. From Jef
furson to &alom, and thane to New Richmond on
the Ohio, in wostern Pennsylvania, Michigan and
Indiana, there are thos all aloug in whos friend
ship is now my Colieitj, in whose society and uffoo
tion, I trust will be my heaven forover.
An ocean may separate, but it cannot (under us.
Distuuue may stretch ii domuin never o widely,
it shall only swell higher tho tido of affection.

Foster, in a concluding and nnd powerful speech,
demonstrated from tho very "nature of things,"
tho organization of nil anti-slavery political party
must of necessity provo n failure, 'i ho Financo
Conmiittco collected the sum of $o",75. The rc
oluticms w cro then taken up separately, and adopted
1. Vcsohul, That wc rcitcinto moot solemnly the
sentiment which from the beginning has been tho
rallying cry oi aiMiiuionists, Hint slavery is n sin
agninsl God and tho highest crime against man.
and shall so declare until this guilty nation repents
of its wrong, nnd demonstrates ils sincerity by un
doing the heavy burdens and setting tho oppressed
2. Res'ihrtl, That this Convcnfion deeply ffle'.s
tho necessity of n thorough organization of the
niiti-.slaveiy cause in this .State, on the basis of the
American Anti-Slavery Sociclv, by which it shall
bo taken from the arena of politics, and tho control
of demagogues nnd political aspirants, anil placed
in tho hands uf enlightened philanthropists, who
havo no object to promote but tho highest good of
our common country, una nro under no temptations
to pervert it to party or sectarian purposes.
3. Hetohat, That wo heartily rejoico in tho au
spicious commencement of this work in tho recent
organization of n Stalo Anti-Slavery Society, nnd
sincerely hope it will go on until there shall bo nn
efficient auxiliary association in every county
and town in tho Stalo, and wo hero pledgo to the
Stnto Society our wannest sympathies and cordial
co-operation in its holy work of renovating the
public sentiment of tho community, so that slavery
cau liud no support, either in tho political or the
religious history of tho country.
4. Itesolcal, That wo havo no controversy with
Churches, ns such, but oppose them only in so far
as thny sustain slavery, as abolitionists it matters
not lo us whether ecclesiastical organizations bo
catholic or protestant, whether they hold to the
doctrino of tho trinity or unity, whether they
practice- baptism by immersion or by sprinkling,
worship in silence or with hymns of praise nnd
songs of thanksgiving, if they nro true to human
ity, taithlul in puvoealing tho cause ol tho slave,
they will nicot with no opposition from tho anti-
llctoleed, That no church organization can
occupy ft true nuti-slavcry position, which retains
in membership men who arc slaveholders, who do
fend or apologise for tho system, who nro members
of a government that sustains slavery, or the sup
porters oi n party which sanctions or tolerate it.
C. Jicsohed, That although there is a difference
in the nmuuiit of pro-slavery inllncncc exerted by
different ecclesiastical organizations, we know of !
but one rcligiou denomination which we regard as!
free from slavery; and it always nf- j
fords us pleasure to mako mention ol' the uuti-sla-
very character und consistent position of Iho Old

genius of the niili-shivory enterprise, nnd ono of
the most formidable obstacles to its progress :
1st, Bceauso it diverts tho attention of abolition
ists from the nil important work of converting tho
community to anti-slavery, to a mere scram Mo for
political placo and power.
2d, Bo':nuso practically it degrades the anti-slavery
cause in tho public estimation from its high
moral pre-emiiicneo, to a level with the political
questions of the day, nnd transforms its advocates
from Christian philanthropist into mere political

sequent eloction to nfflco by tho other parties of
candidate friendly lo liberty, nnd thereby greatly
retard the reform of our national and State legis
lation. And J
Where, the Free Democrat, the accredited or
gan ot tlio r reo Sou party lias witiuiiy ana repeat

the agents of the American Anti-Slavery Society
now laboring in this Stato, as well ns the position

Refilred, Hint the Free Pimnoint, while claim
ing to be especially a fi iend of the slave, is doing
nn eminently pfo-'slnery work in misrepresenting
nnd defaming some of the truest friends of freedom,
that its denial of the right of defense in its columns
proves tho despotism of its conductors, that its
cowardly, partial policy disqualifies it from being
the recognized organ of any party which clnims to

Rewired, That while we do hot hold nil tho
members of Iho 1'iec Soil party responsible for tho

testimony against its present conductors, and so

NOTES FROM THE LECTURING FIELD.
LIVONIA, Feb, 10th, 1854.
I closed a series of seven Lectures at tho Wcs
leyan church nt Wolf Creek on Wednesday night.
Tho audiences were good from tho beginning, and
increased in numbers and interest t the last.
I em confident that many who were prejudiced

in tho future. Our faithful fricuds, Warren nnd
Myr Giibert.have stood pretty much atone in that
neighborhood, but w ill dj so no longer. Truor
friends to tho sfavo can no whero be found than
theso. I have had a homo with them during the
wholo of my stay in that region j twenty meotings
in succession did our frionds attend with their
team, taking from a doion to twenty with thorn
each overling. Would that the causo ha'l uch rep-
rescntatives in every neighborhood.
On Thursday morning, in tho midst of a cver0
enow atorui, Warren and ' I started to attend thf
Convention at this place. N'over wa I out in
weather so bitterly coivj. In an open wagon we
buffeted the wind and snow, till v.e could endure
no longer. After thaw ing out wo started acain,
nnd at uight reached Ann Arbor, whore at the
hotiKo ol Richard Glazier wo met our good friends
the Fosters and others, on their wnv hoi-e. Wei
wero indeed glad to soo each other again ; and
especially when wo hoard uf tho verv narrow en-
cape that Mr. and Mrs. Foster had had but n few
hours before. They enmo on tho cars to Ann Ar
bor; just ns they woro nouring the station, passing
round a very short curve, tho engine ran off the
track, pitching headlong dow n a steep bank, roll
ing over nnd over, stopping bottom uppermost.
The tender was upset on tho edge of tho bank,
while- tho bnggago and emigrant car wero thrown

fireman had one of his legs badly mangled. Grat
itude filled our hearts, for illy could such faithful
advocates of the slave bo spared from tho field
Next day found us at the heme of Iho Fullers,
on tho evoning of which quitu a number of friends
met nnd held nn informal meeting preparatory to
tho meeting of tho next day. At ten o'clock tho
meeting was culled to order, a goodly number
being in attendance. Cyrus Fuller was oloclod
President. Tho official report will be furnished
for the Buglo. During the meeting, our friend
U. S. Jones nrrivcil, adding much to cur joy. On
Sunday tho bouso w as crowded. Tho discussions
were animated and thorough, quite a number par
iicipatin;; therein. Tho meeting towards tho close
was annoyed by one or two rather querulous froc
soil men, still much good feeling prevailed.
Thero are muny sterling friend.i of tho slave
hero, and they evidence their love for tho cause,
by freely sustaining it with their means. This
town must havo contributed this year, considerably
moro than one hundred dollar to the fun. Is of the
Sevoral of our friends from Adrian nnd the
neighborhood were here, though it is ni:;!y miles dis
tant, and lhey had to come in wagons, among whom
was Thos. Chandler and wife, Jacob Walton, Ann
llayhall, Le. On Tuesday morning wo aaiu sep
arated. Stephen and Abby returned to Ann Arbor,
B. S. Jones to Wuterford, nnd 1 lo Famiington,
where I spoke oneo in tho Frionds' House, (Pro
gressive) and twico in tho Union House, a new,
beautiful building. The meetings were very well
attended, tho Ia:,t being the most numerous. Par
ticular attention was paid to tho Nebraska Plot on
the second night, nnd the enthusiasm was great.
I think tho slavo may safely reckuu on a strong
influence in his behalf hero.
