Salem, Ohio, March 18, 1854. PUBLIC LANDS-NEGROES AND INDIANS.
Look at tho acouiidrclisin of slavoholding Con
gressmen. They will except all colored men from
among the recipients of tho public lands. They
don't like it. " It is unconstitutional," and all that.
But most woudorful generosity they have towards
the Indians! Especially tlarchulding Indians.
Mr. Orr's bill, is a bill to iutruduco slavery into
evory territory of tho nation. It is not enough
that it must curse Utah nnd Now Mexico, Kansas
and Nebraska. It must reach to Orcjjon, and cni
braco Mtiicsota and all tho Indian territories.
TUctO slavholdors huvo an evo tingle and a purpose

from which to form it. The Missouri Compromise
is ropcalcd, nnd Indians uro scattered over the ter
ritories, organized and unorganized. And slavo
holdors will become Indians for the sako of occu
pying tho territories with slavery. They would
fool no rcpugnanco to adding nn Indian wifo to thoir
colored hrrcins, nnd thus constituto themselves In
dian citizens, by Indian lnw.
Tho Nobrnska bill, properly designated, Is a
to introduce slavery into Kansas nnd Nebraska.
M r.Orr's bill is a bill to in trcduco slavery in to Oregon

All this is to be bo dono tins session, and what
tho future olono can reveal. Thcro are no bounds
to the arrogant impudenco of sluvcholding designs.
Farmors and mechanics, citizens of the North
and West, what think you? You have been strug
gling for years with difficulty and toil, almost
misorly hoarding up your earnings and savings,
little by littlo, nnd for what? Why it was that
might have a farm for yourselves, and provide farms,
aniplo and productive, for your growing sons
daughters. Fur this yon have hoped, and for this,
year after year, you, fathers and mothers bave
hnled. Now this Congress, by these two bills,

lias been n matter of course. One of which
have never thought of complaining. It is true

and gavethcin a freo will oUoringto slavery. Never
dreaming of sotting your foot upon that soil,
one of its possessors, never mutcring or peeping
one word of complaint, if they lynched or bung
your fellow citizons, who, trusting to the hospital!
ties of your boncficinries, dared to nsscrt their
eonal freedom of thought nnd speech. It is
that without thought of occupying her soil as
dents, you furuisbod volunteers for the Texas rebel
lion, you gave the votes for her admission to
Union, and cheerfully paid many more than '
millions" to start her in the slnvehoAing and
breeding business. You furnished money to
qucr Vow Mexico nnd Utah, and gave up
alacrity, eii claims upon any power in those terri
tories. Tliey were too fur south nnd tho climate
was too genial for your modest ambition.
But north of 30 30' you hoped to have

and among the bike and swamps of Minosota

AsTt-SLAVERf LrxTi'Rts x Xew York. This
courso of lectures was concluded last week, by
Ralph Waldo Emerson. His subject was the
" Seventh of March." Tho time of tho lecture
was the 7th of March, the fourth annivcrrary of
Mr. Webster' 7th of March speech. This seems
almost ernal. But it is well. The infamy of trni.
should no more be forgotten than the virtues
j of martyrs and heroes. Arnold's treason is as im
that portant a land-mark in history, as Franklin's pat-
riotism, and tho legitimate influcnco of the ono is
ns valuable as the other. The only difficulty of
tho present is.that our living traitors nro so numer
ous that no adequate amount of scorn and indig
nation can be concentrated upon any one of them.
Resolutions wcro passed at the close of this last
lecture, congratulating tho friends of frocdom on
tho eminent success of the courso. And Oliver
Johnson announced that a similar courso during
tho lecturing seasons might bo considered as hento.

They wore brow beaten, outraged and insulted, but
they stood their ground like men, were prompt and

his "mammy" with him to Nebraska, except that

A Nebraska expedition is being organized

Rev. Antoinette Brown, and tho untitlod Lucy

would not permit him to appear beforo an associa

them as those noblo women mentioned above.
Bishop had twice promised to address tho Associa
tion, but afterwards, whon he learned that thcso
ladies were among tho lecturers of the season,
declined to fulfil his engagement.

pleasure of listening to those women, and showed
their marked appreciation of their talents

As to a dissolution of tho Union bringing n real

can succeed in consumating their plans. Disunion
iiou would be a loal triumph to freedom, while we
have yet a freo North Western Territory. But let
them curse it nil with slavery, as they design to do(

Td the Friends or Iuimrtial Freedom : In
sending out this our Fourth Annual Call for a
gathering of those who hate oppression and lovo
justice, we deem tho urging of any reasons for so
jy,,,;, wil0Hy unnecessary. Thfl importance of
frequent meetings of tho friends of this cause, for
! deliberation .counsel and encouragement, is well
uliacrslomI, BS is, tt,80 te utility "of Conventions
: fr pouring Anti-Slavery truth upon tho hearts of
.1.. neonle. Wo will oulv sav that, since our last
Annual Convention, deeds havo been dono 111 our
Midst that warn us not to relax our effort. ,
Our city, until within the pastycar freo from tho
deep disgrace of having sent back n peor fugitive
to his chains, under tho Fugitive Slavo A 't, now
stands doubly degraded.
The Constitutional right:) of onr colored caucus
to protection hnvo been officially outraged. By a
decision of 0110 of our Judges upon the Bench, they
havo bean told that they aro to bo supposed tlaves
until they havo proved thoir free loin ; aud tho
kidnapper, that ho has nothing to fear from legal
justico if his victim has not free papers in his pock
et. Thus, virtually, is Ohio made a Slnvo State.
During the past year our Stuto has been more
than evor used as a hunting-ground, free to all who
choso to run upon tho trail of the poor black man ;
to 1 and if tho efforts now being mado by tho Slaovo-
crnts of Congress aro successful, not a foot of th
soil of tho United States but may soon be trodden
by a slavo.
And stilt coino wafted to us, on overy brceic
that sweeps over our beautiful river, tho sighs and
groans of millions of our countrymen, upon w hose
dreary earthly condition Hopo scarce theds or.c
ray of light.
Among the places in which Anti-Slavery Con.
volitions should be held, Cincinnati is prominent,
Considering its location its adaptation to tho rad
iating of the light of Anti-Slavery truth over tho
darker parts of our land n moro important point
can hardly bo found ; nnd tho success that hns
attended tho efforts thnt have been mado here
attests that there is not a more promising field.
We do, then, earnestly invito all who agree with
us that Slavery is a crime against God nnd mm,
and are willing faithfully to labor for its abolition
whatever other differences may exist among us, to
come together again in Convention, to doliberato
upon the great work we have to do. And our
platform will be free to all, whether friends or
opponents, who dosire candidly to discuss tho great
principles of the Anti-Slavery enterprise.
Confiding in the blessing of Almighty God,
promised to every true and right effort, we hope to
make an impression 'upon tho moral atraosphora
thnt shall vibrate to the extreme verge of our slave-
