NOTES FROM THE LECTURING FIELD.
BATTLE CREEK, Feb. 27th, 1854.
Tho Albion convention adjourned at half past
twelve o'clock on Fridoy night till the following
Tuesday. Mr. Junes and myself immediately
started per railroad for this place, to commence a
covontion the following day. Boing accompanied
by Chnrloi and Richard Morrltt, we had no diffi
culty in finding an asylum at four o'clock, for the
balance of tho night. Somowhnt rofreshed In body
and mind, wa mot the members of the convention,
a goodly number of whom wore presont, both from
the village and adjacent country. The usual com
mittees were appointed, and addresses mndo by
Mr. Jones and myself.
Tho Fosters arrived in timo for the evening
meeting, which was as all subsequent ones were,
deeply interesting. The house Icing filled with
On Sunday the houso was crowded to ita utmost
capacity, during the whole day and evening. It
was proposed to close the discussion on the resolu
tions in tho afternoon, but Erastus Hussy express
ed a desire lo liavt them open fur discussion in tho
evening, w hich was cheerfully agreed to. In the
evening the political bearing of the subject was
pretty thoroughly discussed by Mr. Foster and
myself on the one side, and Mr. Hussy and some
other friend on tho other ; after which the resolu
tions woro carried with great enthusiasm. The
convention was very spirited throughout, the very
best spirit prevailing.
Never was tho causo in so hopeful a condition
in this place as at the proscnt'time. Sallie Holly,
W. I.. Garrison, and the Fosters, were bore at dif
ferent times in the full, but' notwithstanding this,
over a hundred dollar was raised fur tho Mich.
I was urgently rofnicstcd to return and deliver
lectures on "Anti-Slavory the highest manifesta
tion of Christianity," and "What ia Law." By
the advice of my coadjutors, I consented. On
Tuesday, with tho exception of Bonj., we roturnod
to Albion. An account of the meeting will be
furnished by Mrs. Foster. Early on Wednesday
morning Stephen nnd I started per rail, to attend
the "Free Democratic State Convention," at
This was nn important gathering, being the
largest I understand ever held in the state. There
was a great amount of certain kind of enthusi
asm, and things were put through with a rush.
Tho court house was crowdod to its utmost capac
ity. Tho leading spirits were St. Clair, Fox, Ba
kor, ana t'.iu Detroit members of the Central Com
mittee I cannot give you the names of tho offi
cers. But suffice it to say they filled their differ
ent stations admirably. A stnto ticket was nomi
nated, a kind of "fusion ticket," made up of "free
sellers," "whigs" that voted for Genoral Scott,
and who declared on accepting the nomination,
that they had never actod with the Free Dom. par
ty, and that if a ticket ahould bo nominated by
some other party, that would fill their idea better,
they would support that, Free Dcm. or otherwise.
The candidate for Govcruor, I think, is an old line
Dcmocrnt. But I liked his appearanco much.
A presiding elder of tho M. E. Church was nomi
nated for an important office, which brought loce-
ding methodists "up standing," Mr. McBrido and
others declaring they would not vote for him.
All opposition to the candidates presented by
the committee was treated with marked indiffer
ence. Somo of the members declared that some
of the nominees never had a particle of free soil
blood in their veins, and uevcr would have.
But "availability" was everything in the estima
tion of the leaders. Every shade of opinion, from
the most conservative to tho most radical, was rep
resented ia tho convention, and a good deal of dis
cussion was had on some of the resolutions, es
pevially on those declaring the powers of Congress
and the chnractor of tho constitution ; one party
contended that we had no responsibility for the
existonce of slavery in the states, another that we
were responsible. All difference was settled by
the old American npplianco "a compromise."
The convention endorsed the character of the
" Freo Democrat," nnd recommended it to the
support of tho peoplo everywhere. A member
offered a resolution requesting the paper to open
its columns to free discussion or the admission of
answers to all attacks. This was inlondcd as
rebuke for its course towards Mr. Garrison, Foster,
&v. But it was rejected, on the ground that the
papor was privnto property, and the proprietor
must determine fur himself what he admits and
what he rcjeots. A resolution was offered by a
member of tho convention to invite all friends of
tho slave to participation in the discussions, wheth
er they agreed with the Pittsburgh Platform or
not. This was also rejected. Our Free Soil
friends, I mean the leaders, in this state have
quite a lesson to learn yet and I am mistaken, if
they do not learn it before long. At the close of
the Free Soil convention, it was announced that
Mr. and Mrs. Foster and myself, would hold three
meetings in the same place on the following day,
at which aome of the positions of that diy would
We met, with quite a good attendance. The
course of the " Froe Democrat" was introduced
by Mr. Foster, which led to quite a discussion da
ring the fore and afternoon sessions, some free
soilors defending, and other opposing ita course.
At the clone of tiio afternoon session, Mr. Winter,
a free-will Baptist Minister, undertook a de-Sen oe

tbe rosters witu uiutielity. lie wo very severe

Still the house was well filled, and the impression
made, I trust will be lasting. To-morrow I return
into the neighborhood of Adrian, where I have
meetings appointed for two weeks.
MaSicji The following resolutions were pre
sented to the Nebraska meeting, held in tbe Town
Hall on Saturday evening, March 11th. They
were accepted but not adopted by the meeting.
They embody my sentiments on the question
which is now agitating the peoplo of this eountry.
Whereas i The institution of Slnrerv in this
eountry, has proven itself to be, what John Wesley
ions ago termeu it, "tno sum ol all villanies."

Adams, to be true, vii! "that the preservation,
propagation and porpotuation of slavery," had be

therefore, Kcsolved, That whilo we enter our
earnest ond determined protest against tho intro
duction of slavery into territory now free, wo also
pledge ourselves be for o Almighty God, never to
censo from tho azitation of this nucstion. until the
jubilee of freedom shall have been sung by every
BH..O iii uur lanu.
Resolved. That we rceard slavcrr as a direct
violation of the eternal law of God, and we look
upon all compromises between slavery and frco
dom as "a covenant with doath and an agreement
with hell," and we would sooner league with a
horde of devils, to " legislate for the elevation of
the race,' than with men fresh from a southern
Sodom, with hands reeking with the blood of mur
dered innoconcei and we would sooner welcome
to the communion table Judas Iscarint, than tho
polluted wretch who makes merchandise of virtue
Hesolvod, That the onlv salvation for freedom
in this country, is found in the wnninir of an un
compromising and extorminiting war against the
institution of slavery ; branding as traitors all
who compromise with, and treating as piratos nil
who give their support tu, or apologixo for this
monstrous institution of iniquity.
On this question I have taken my stand, I place
the rights of man above all constitutions, nil com
pacts and all compromises. No frown of political
demagogues, bor porsocutions of a corrupt slave
holding and slave-breeding church, will ever cause
me to yield obedicnco to compromise between
slavery and froodoin.

LETTER FROM J. MOSHER.
GILEAD, Ohio, 3d mo, 5th, 1854.
Dxar Marics: Permit me, throuch the columns
of the Bugle, to make a few remarks, nnd givo my
opinion on tho subject of non-par tioipancy in the
use of slave-grown produce.
1 have regretted exceedingly the position of such
men as Garrison, Pillobury, the Fosters, Trent and
others, names w hich I honor and revere for their
constnncy and persevering opposition to the slave
powor; that they should fall so far in the rear on
this important subject. If I understand their po
sition correctly, they are not willing to adopt a
theory which it is impossible to reduce to practice
in all its minute dotails. It is horo, it seems to me,
that they do err. Not that I would charge them
ith inconstancy to thoir duty ; but it does seem ns
if tbey had satisfied their consciences, and predi
cated their conclusions upon false and uutonablo
They admit it to be wrong and sinful lo support
this pro-slavery Government, by voting or holding
office according to its Constitution and laws. I am
with them here. But do wo not, in many ways
directly or indirectly, give it our eountenanco nnd
support? Do we not pay our tnxes, to avoid the
sacrifice of property ? Is there not a tax levied
annually, upon the printing press and apparatus
to the office of tho Anti-Slavery Bugle, and paid by
the Executive Committco into the coffers of the
Stato Treasury? And is not our money taken,
more or less, to swell the funds of the National
Treasury? Did not we, by and through the chan
nels of commerce, help to build those slave pens or
prisons in i aslnngton, and furnish our quota of
the mouics taken, to keep in rcadinoss the army
and navy of the I'uitcd States to quel! slave insur
. I admit wo do not do it voluntarily, but from the
force of necessity ; that it is difficult to avoid it,
anu retain a nome lor our wives and little ones
within the precincts of the Government. Yet we
are not willing, (like many Free Soilcrs,) to aban
don our premises, in consequence of not boing able
to carry them out iu all their nunutia, and cease en
tirely from supporting this pro-slavery Govern
ment. Then why any moro inconsistent for free-lnhor
men to cease purchasing the blood-stained fruit of
slavery, in consequence of not being ablo to extri
cate themselves tntirthj from slave-grown produce?
We might as well abandon our disunion views be
cause we canuot tnlircly extricate ourselves from
the guilty Government. In the language of Jos.
Treat to Whittocro, "Is it right to support the
Government at all ? if nay, then why do it ? We
support the Government every day at home or
abroad, in what we eat or wear, or in buying tho
land we till, in paying duties or taxes some way or
other; and if it is right to support the Govern.
ment, then why make such a noise nbout other
people supporting it?" I cannot see, for the life
of mo, why it will not apply to us in supporting
the Government, with equal force, as to those who
are trying to abstain from the voluntary use of
slave produce On neither horn of the altar would
I hang my hope ; but encourage all to abstain as
much as lies in their power from countenancing,
supporting and sustaining slavery in either way
and if we cannot walk over the surface of the
earth dry shod, is that any excuse for wading and
plunging in mud and nuro to our middle, or even
to our necks and ears ? It doos appear to me,
there is a heavy responsibility resting upon all who
are making no efforts to extricate themselves from
the participancy iu the crime of holding their
fellow beings in hopeless bondage, by buying.
selling, eating and wearing the price of their blood.
By so doing, that is, meeting the slav produce
trader or merchant at the landing, or depot, with
money io hand, to buy his cotton, sugar, rice, cof
fee, molasses, tobaoeo, Ao., and paying him f-;r
same, ws become participants with him j0 the
crime of sluveholding, and furnish the sneans, the
mails, whica keep the system moving. Tis like
the mainspring to a watuh or weights to a clock,
is money, awaey, and (hot too, of northern and
British freemen, which enables tlx) slaveholders to
sustain and perpetuate that dark and diabolical
system. It is the awe w Licit tbey obtain in es-
eliaage lor ttteir cotton, &e-, that enables timca to
ply Um laek. to the peor cotton picker. It is tbe
mtuey f northern freemen, with which they jwr
chase slaves; bire overseers to drive and whip
Uteas ; uc Slav trader to bey and sell thesn, with
all tbe brutal and heart-rending scenes eonneetod
with this dreadful trafick; and remunerate the
manufacturers for forging fetters, chains, thumb-
screws, and all tho various Implements of torturo
with which the poor slaves are afflicted ; nnd pays
the slave breeders of the more northern of the slave
States, for rearing little boys and girls for the mors
southern markets, tn be sold on the auction block
to tbe highest bidder.
Now the question arises, shall we of tho North,
who lo liberty nnd hate slavery, because we can
not entirely extricate ourselves from these evil,
forego tho vast amount of gio-l which lies in our
power, and thus destroy tho fell monster from off
the earth ; for if Ihero w ere no market for slave
grown produce, whnt Inducement would there t o
for holding slaves? None nt nil. And it does sp
pear to me, that if tho people of tho freo countrief
generally, would adopt tl.a free laW system, and
reduce it to practice, even though they could not
entirely extricnto themselves, but como nbout as
nonr as we can to withholding support from tho Gov
ernment, that it would snap Ihe mainspring, break
the cords which support tho weights, dry the foun
tain which keeps tho eluve machinery in motion,
nnd slavery would die. Then let us work, work,
and work on, turn nt every handle, keep all tho
irons in tho fire, pull nt every cord, that we may
rest with the consciousness of having done all that
wo could for tho deliverance of our follow croatur
in bondage, and the enfranchisement of tho race.
So, in love to nil tho friends of freedom and uni
versal brotherhood, I subscribe myself thy friend
and co-worker in the good cause.
THE GOVERNMENTAL TRACT SOCIETY.
BURLINGTON, Iowa, March 5th, 1854.
Dia Mami-9' Aro you and tho good peoplo of
Ohio, aware of tho activity and enterprise of that
great Tract-Sooioty, at Washington, of which w
are all members, and to whose funds we, whether
with or against our wish, must so largely contrib
ute. Do favor the readers of tho Bugle, who be
ing mostly unsound as to Democratic orthodoxy,
may not havo ready access to the originals, with
the subjoined brief extracts from a splendid vol
ume, with this titlo page and imprint:
"32.1 Congress, )
2d Session. J
" EirroitATiox of the valley of the Amazon, mad
under direction of ti.e Navy Department, by
Wm. Lewis Horndon, nnd Lnrdner Gibbon,
I.ientcnnnts of the U. S. Navy. Dart First, by
Lieut. Horndon. Washington. Robert Arm
strong, l'ublio Printer i 1803."
After descending the Amazon from its utmost
sources in the Chilian mountains, to its mouth, and
admiring (at who would not,) tho vast natural
wealth of that country, he adds by way of i'm;tror
men!, these pious nnd practical suggestions i
" To niako then the rich nnd vnriod production
of this country arailablo fur commercial purposes,
and to satisfy tho artificial wants of man, it is
necessary that labor should bo compulsory.
Tho common sentiment of tho civilized world i
against tho renewal of tho African slave trado,
thoreforo must Brazil turn elscvvhcro for tho com
pulsory labor necessary to cultivato hor lauds.-
Her Indians will not work. Like tho Lama of
Peru, they will die sooner thnn do moro than ia
necessary to support their being. I am under th
impression that wero Brazil to throw off a cause
less jealousy and a puerilo fear of our pooplo, and
invito settlors to tho valley nf the Amazon, thor
might be found among our southern planters, men,
who looking with apprehension (if not for them
selves at least for thoir children) to the stato of
affairs as regards slavery at homo, would undor
sufficient guarantees, romovo their slaves to that
country, cultivate its lands, draw out its resources,
and prodigiously augment tho powor and wealth
Don't you think so and that a market might
there bo found fur some, raised in Virginia and
Kentucky, whoso masters would not live them
selves among tho musquitos, alligators, nnd other
pleasant things of the lowor Amazon ? But to re
turn to our Tract.
"Tho negro slave seems very happy in Brazil.
This is remarked by all foreigners. I
have frequently soen these gangs of negroes carry
ing cocoa to tho wharf. They are always chatter
ing and singing morrily, nnd would stop every few
minutes to execute a kind of danco with the bags
on their heads, thus doubling their work."
" Churches are large and ajundnnt in Para." -Who
doubts it ? One has seventy-four priests and
levites. Hence also other benevolent institutions,
of one of which our naval missionary gives th
following nai're and most edifying account:
"This is a placo fur the reception of foundlings,
maintained Vy tho city. A cylinder with a recep
tacle in it sufficiently largo fur the reception of a
baby, turns upon nn axis in a window, aud any
person may come under cover of tho night, dopos
ito a child in tho cylindor, turn tho mouth of the
receptacle in, and walk away unseen. Nurses ar
provided to tako chargo of the foundlings. Tho'
I pumped all my acquaintances, I eould got no
statistics concerning this institution, or whether it
was thought to be boncficial or not. I judge how
ever, that for this country, it is. Publio opinion
hero docs not condemn, or at least treats very le.
nicntly the sins of fornication and adultery. This
institution thoreforo whilo it would tend to lessen
tho crime of infanticide, would not encourage the
above mentioned sins' by concealuiont for where
there is no shame, there is no necessity for con
cealment." P. 3-11-2-3.
With this apposite sontiment I conclude my ex
tracts. Shall we not bo thankful that while ws
sleep, with our means and on our account, such
work as this may be done for us, by our excellent
college Dt Propaganda Fide at Washington ?
Yours, E. JAMES.
No. We have never soon the by-authority tract
referred to. Aud we are obliged to our corres
pondent for communicating these extracts. Those
most watchfnl of the tricks of the slavery-propagandists,
and with the best means of information,
are not likely to know nil. Slavery bos an omni
