view of tho slave iiuostiou in the I niled Mntca ut
this time, which nny chronicler can write, is, that '
the extension of slavery was then arrested circum-'
acrided and confined within narrow territorial lim-
its, w hile free states were jiennittcd nn almost un-
limited expansion. 3 hat is the outside view : the',
in.i.lo is, thnt nil this was tho work of southern j
inon, candidates for tho presidency, some in nbey-1
nnce, somo in privtrnH, and nil yielding to that
repugnance :to territorial nggmi.diwn.enl, and j
very extension in the southwest, whu li Mr. Monroe!
mentioned in his letter to (iencral Jac kson ns the
"internal difficulty" which occasioned tho cession
of Texas to Spain. This chapter is a point in the

Aot ooiore wo icu memory urove, our menu, u.
C. Mutt, received a note from a very pr.i-slnvery,
Democratic lawyer of tho place, inviting me to
couie there to lecture. From tho -whole manner of
the invitation and subsequent events, it is ovideut!
that curiosity to see and henr "Abby Kelly" wns
tho only motivo thut prompted tho invitation. But
ll was ucccitou, unu ou uiu urei evening inu i res-
bvterian Church, which I afterwards learned was
not obtained honorably was well filled by an in -
telligcnt assembly who listened with Interest. At
tho close of tho meeting, finding that considerublo
sympathy was felt for the slavo, I proposed auothor,
and enquirod if a houso could bo obtuined for the
purpose After somo consultation, tho Methodist;
Church was pledged by one of its membors, and aj
mooting appointed for the next evening. But the
good friend who made tho pledgo found, to his ut-i
ter aniasement, a terrible opposition nrrnyed ngninst
Him. However, tlio nouso wns opened and lighted,
though not in in time to warm it, as our suffering
congregation could testify. Yet tho mornl thcr-
inomcter was far below tho physical. Still the
interest deepened, aud at tlio closo of this meeting
wo proposed to hold a third. The clergyman step-'
ped forward and said he wns happily disappointed
in the character of our lectures, and that it was
that ought to bo proachod in cvory pulpit,
That although ho hnd un appointment for the next
evening, ho would givo it up to mako wny for us,
und that he was willing wo should have tho house
usloniruswa wnntcd it. I do not nrolend lo irivo
his luiiguiige, but his idons. Yot we wero told
the next dny, this snmo ministor said to somo of
his flock thnt ho was uttorly opposed to our using
tho houso, but was drivon to say whutho did, under
the pressure of public sentiment. We doubt "t
that this latter statement was true, though the con-1
fossion convicU him of falsehood on the previous
evening. The prossuro of public sentiment was
indeed heavy. Some of tho most intelligent, .nflu -

said, if the doors wore shut, they should henooforth ,
withdraw their support, nnd, indeed, the mass ofi

trustees afterwards told me, the house would not
have been opened had tho question come before the
trustees. Neither, probally, would any oilier

kept open. , ,
