ance of the elite of our villagn.Mcrchants, Ministers
and Lawyers, backed by the opening buds of
promise from our mcthodist nursery, with tho
agent of the school himsolf a mcthodist, soldier
priest or priest soldier, who sits up nights to halo
slavery, if we may believe him, and fights nljuli-
tionists day times. These were all on band to
do battle for the truth as it is in "modern" Mcth-
odism, either with the hot shot of personal invec
tive and denunciation, sans argument, or with fists,
billets of wood, unmarketable eggs, and whatever
other weapons might bo available Mr. Walker,'
la an able and cloquont effort, showed the charac
ter of truo practical Christianity, attempting to
prove that man was the object of Heaven's solici
tude, not institution, and that bcnoficcnco to him
as the representative of his master, was the high
est form of Christianity the highest evidence of a
state of grace. At the close of his remarks, It
being 0 o'clock, an effort was made to lay the reso
lutions on tho tnblo, to take up the matter of
finance, as It was the last night of the convention,
and getting late. The vote of the convention was
clearly to do so. But tho mob, officered by the
presiding elder, ana one ot tne tiretnren, (who

under the garb of friendship, had oven obtained
office in the convention,) with the most riotous
demonstrations clamored for Brockway (the agent
and demanded that he speak. To avoid
riot the convention consented, and speak he did,
till the next morn, and apparently would till day
light, had he not lost the floor, refusing to admit a
motion of adjournment, though but a few evenings
before Insisting that a motion to adjourn was al-
in order. Mr. Walker having by a misstep
of his obtained tho floor, the convention adjourned
to the next week Tuesday, when the battlo
renewed, the excitement in tho mean time reaching
fever heat, in our community, and threatening
aud slaughter, being frculy breathed out against
the disturbers of our peaco. Our Presiding Elder
openly and shamclossly advocating the cause of
the mob. The dny eaino, and with it a senseless
tirade during tho whulo day from our llov. agent,
of personal abuse mid invective ; apparently in
tended to incite tho mob to acts of violence. He
however regarding it as argument on the resolu
tion, though unfortunately, everybody else, (who
were not so much excited that they could not
think,) thought otherwise.
Ia this evening, Mr. Walker obtained tho floor,

by the power of Its logio and eloquenco, enchained

J""' readers may wisn 10 know tne Dcanngs 01
Boston on the questions of reform, and as I am
to the socia: and spiritual world.
You know Harriot Bcccher Stowe has got up o
scries of lectures bore, with a viow to the diffusion
lecture, Dr. Edward Beechor gave tho second last
I heard it, and was
most agreeably disappointed.
Ho gave a truo account of the first fatal step in
this Government, i. e., Libtrty entering into a Con
rtntion with tlarery to establish justice and temrt
librrty. That was tho fatal step, and every stop
that has been taken by Freedom since in this na
tion, has been wrong and must be, till she goes
back andjduts out tho first error, washes it all out
by toars of repontance. Lot liberty meet slavory
let her hunt tho demon out let her search for him
and w hilo he has a hiding place on earth, let her
not give o'er the search. This is the true mission
of liberty to hunt slavery not to wait for slavery
to search fur her but to go forth in God's panoply,
and traverse the globe in search of the monster.
But when she finds him how should sbe meet him ?
Not to invito him to a Convention to establish jut.
Ike not invito biin to a soat in Congress, or on the
judicial bench, in the Presidential chair, in the
pulpit or at the communion table but iu a m:atii
si nuaoLE. Liberty should say to slavery, wherever
and wlioucver sho meets tho fiend. Death to icu, or
dealh to me; I make no terms with you j I ask
quarter, and I shall give none. Liberty should
have had on her banner as her battle-cry, Victory
or DsATn ! instead of tho word CoMrnoMisE.
Mr.Bcccber happily traced the results of this
compromise ou tho moral nature of tho poople,
showing that tho entire influence of the Union had
bcuti to parulyxo tho moral sense, and teach us all
to put evil for good and good fur evil, a lie for the
truth aud truth fur a lio. Ho showed how sUvery
had over triumphed, in every encounter with lib
erty, and how she would still triumph, all owing to
tho first fatal stop. Had liberty mot slavory in the
Convention of 1787, under the batt!o-ery of victory
or death, and not of compromise, the glory of the
nation had ucver boon tarnished, its progress never
bcon impeded. The only salvation to the North
now is to get a now Liberty Banner to leave out
of It "compromise," and inscribe ''Liborty or
Death Victory or Death."
Mr. Bcechcr seemed to see that this muBt be the
issuo, and he urged strongly the formation of
Northern Party, which lis he presented, was our
old true doctrine of Ohio, uttered iu Trcmont Tem
ple, a Norlhorn Republic on the terms of death to
shivery of " No Union with Slaveholders." How
can Sumner, Chase, Wade, Halo, lo., talk of legal
ising and nationalizing slavery T Liberty has no
moro right to allow slavery to exist in Now Orleans
than in Boston. Every friend of liberty will be
just as anxious to abolish slavery in Missouri as iu
Nebraska, in Alubamaas in Maiuo. It is misoable
, .. ,
' hear these men talk about making slavery see
tionul aud liberty national. How, iu Heaven's
uamo, can liberty bo national, while slavory is see
tional under its dominion? Will Sumner tell us
Will you? Will Giddingsf If liberty is national,
whore is tho place fur slavery? If slavory is iu
Virginia, liborty cannot be there. If slavery is in
more than half the nation, as it is, liberty cannot
go there, except in a war of utter extermination
Mr. Boechcr s locture was a good one. Many
heard and cheered it. He said if tho laws
Moses were truly applied to American Slavery,
could not exist a single hour. Very well ; let the
church thus use the Bible, and not a whisper will
be heard against it, so fur as that evil is concernod.
But when the church uses the Bible to sustain sla
very, as she does, I have only to answer, Ms Libit
it wrong, aud not tlavery right.
A wock ago last night, a groat Whig gathering
was io Faneuil Hall, to protest against the Nebraska
bill. You will see an aeoount of it in tlie Liberator
of this wook. It was a rich specimen of fogyism
as you could wish. The amount of all the speeches
save one, was, " We tugged bard to pleoso our
Southern allios kin 1850. We nearly choked
death swallowing the pill they gave us, but we
squeezed-it dowa to save the Union and to allay
agitation, aud to win your votes. Now you are
about to giro us another dose. This is too bad.
Wo hardly know how to bear it. Spare us, sweet
friends, do sparo us." This was tho tono of the
meeting. Elliot, Lawrence, Blagdep, Winthrop
and Milliard gavo it this air. No issuo was made
with slaveholders. Much whs suid about tho Uiiiou
and many appeals wore made to Webster's pio.
ture, for help ia this emergoncy. No Webster
rapped to them. No medium was there for his
present needs. Winthrop plainly told Elliot that
ho did a little worse than he (Winthrop) did
1850, Blagden insisted that God instituted slavory,
and got a great hissing fur it.
But Josiuh Quinoy, 63 years old, took the stand,
and told them all, that slaveholders eared nothing
for thorn that the Whigs and Democrats wero all
talk and no action against slavery that ths Mis
souri Compromise would be abolished that the
slave power would increase and that the Northern
politicians were poor, miserable set, whom the
slaveholders held and used as they did their other
slaves. Thus the. noble old man rebuked them,
and they All folt it, for the next day they tried all
their influence to got the papers not to publish his
speech, lint it is out, nearly as it was spoken.
So you set Boston is booomlng divided against
itself, ministers against ministers, politicians
against politicians. God speed the right.

More Agitation. Mr. Giddings last week, re
buked the Presidential attempt nt fillihostering,
(on the credit of tho seixuro of the of the Black
warrior,) with severity, creating quite a flurry in
tho Home. The following from the Tribune gives
the spicy part of the discussion.
Mr. OIDD1NG8 moved a reconsideration of yes-
rday s vote, by which tho President's Black war-,
nor .'lossajre was referred to tho Committee on
Foreign Adair. Mr. 0. said after the reading of
tho message yesterday he had hoped soino political
friend of the Administration, recognized as such,!
would call the attention of tho House aud country
to its extraordinary haracter, or that some op
ponent of the Administration would do so. Being
nn extreme case, he had been constrained to rise
to occupy the attention of the House for a few min
utes on the subject. The circumstances attending
the seizins of the Black Warrior weie few and
simple, which l.o narrated, and said be saw noth
ing extraordinary in this, as nil vessels going into
port aro hound to c inform to the revcuuo laws.
I'lio revcr.uo laws of Spain are similar to our own
for protection and sclf-prcscrvation, which should
always sjercdW bo maintained. The officers of the
Black W arriur had liotntcd the Spanish laws, and
therefore- she was seized and the cargo cunfiscated.
In Boston nnd Now York British i-tcauiors bad
been seized iu a similar manner, having contra
band goods on board, ljut no voice from England
had come in remoustrarco. nnd she expects our

.1 - I .l I I I..1IM I
io mu icic-umj svsicin wuicu nno imi t-'stiiuiiMiru
and ordained. lie could see no difference between
those cases and that of the Ulack warrior. Yet cer
tain newspapers have called attention to the latter
a extraordinary, nnd gentlemen seam to have
taken an interest in this, paramount to all others.
Nobody obje.-ted that tho resolutions calling for
the information which the President has communi
cate J should be passed ; but the President has
2ono beyond the call, and undertaken to force bis
opinions on this representative body. Tho Prcsi-1
dent says thero have been in tho course of a few
years pat many other initanics of aggression upon
commerce, violations of tho rights of American
citizens, and insults to the national flag by the
Spanish authorities in Cuba. Have gentlemen
I iocketcd the insults? Have Representatives, the
'xccutivo and the Government pocketed insults?
When, and where, and on what occasion have thoy
pocketed insults from the dilapidated nnd power
less Oovornniont of Spain? The people sent us
here to dcteimino our own character nnd ac
tions, nnd nut to receive from the President lectures
on propriety and duties. Wo should feel tho dig-
nity oi our position mm nun D'icK mo mcmre on
the Executive, whoso energic-i have been paralyzed.
Although he was elected triumphantly he can now
scarcely command a majority of one measure here.
The scepter has departed, his power is gone, nnd
jet to day this Executivo reads Jus a leo'nre, and
tells us wo have pocketed insultH from the Spanish
Government. I served with the President in Con
gress, but I have r-oen moro sen ice than he, being
nn older man. I, however, never rode in war,
laughter, but fought on foot nnd never fainted.
Laughter. I repeat I feel this to be an oncrooch
mcnt on our dignity and rights, nnd it should be
rebuked promptly. Other gentlemen may sit
quietly iindor the lecture I will not, nor will I
pocket the insults. The President further says,
"the documents in these cases aro voluminous, and
"when prepared will be sent to Congress." Why!
"should bo intrude on us documents we never call
ed for? I want to impress upon the Executive the
fact that he is our rrrvant. nnd not cur master
want him to know that while ho executes tho laws
I will rospect him, but not when he oversteps the
bounds of duty. Does he send his communication
to the Senate? No. ho leaves them in tho dark.
The President speaks of Spuin adopting a policy
threatening the honor and cocuriiy of theso Statcc.
What is this policy ? It is now "avowed nnd un
derstood by all men the emancipation nnd civili
zation of tho slaves of Cuba, that they may stand
forth in the attitude of (icemen ; and this is the
policy which the Prosidcnt wants overthrown,
uccessnry to the security of these States. In what
an ope do wo live, when we see such movements
on the part of tho Executive culling on us to pro
paro for war a dread trial of battlo to provont
emancipation ? This declaration is in accordance
with the breathings of the Executivo organ here,
and which it has been holding forth for tho
year, in articles written by nx-inlwrs of the Cabinet.
The entire southern press coincide in this declara
tion, firct proclaimed in tho Inaugural Address.
It is a decided attempt to revolutionize this Govern
ment, and 1 pronounce it so horo and will do
olscwhero. It wns in vuin our Revolutionary fath

Mr. GIDD1XGS Does this look like chivalry,

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday,
THE 11TH, 12TH, AND 13TH OF APRIL, 1854.
To Tn Friends or Impartial Freedom i In
sending out this our Fourth Annual Call for a
iritlierinw nf tlmsa who halo oppression ROd It' VP
iustice, w e deem the urging of any reasons for so
doing wholly unnecessary. Tho Importilnco ol
frequent meetings of the frionds of this cause, for
deliberation, counsel and encouragement, 1 Well
understood, as is, also, the utility of Conventions
for pouring Anti-Slavery truth upon tho hearts of
the people. We will only say that, since our last
Annual Convention, deeds have been done in our
Midst that warn us not to relax our efforts.
Our city, until within the past year free from the
doep disgraeo of having sont back n poor fugitive
to bis chains, under the Fugitivo Slave Act, now
stands doubly degraded.
Tho Constitutional rights of onr colored citiiens
to protection have lecu officially outraged. By
decision of one of our Judges upon the Bench, they
have been told that they arc to be supposed tl.ivos
until they havo proved their freedom ; and the
kidnappor, that he has nothing to fear from legal
justice if his victim has not free papers in his pock
ct. Thus, virtually, is Ohio made a blavo btato.
During tho past year our State has been more
than ever used a a huuting groinnl, fret to all who
choso t run upon tho trail of tho poor bl.uk man
and if the offorts now beiiijf mado by the Slaevo-
crats of Congress nro successful, not a foot of the
soil of tho United States but may soon be trodden
by a slave.
And still como wafted to us, on every breeze
that sweeps over our beautiful river, the sight and
groans of millions of our countrymen, upon Tthose
drenry earthly coudilion Hope scarce sheds one
ray of light.
Among the placet in which Auti-SUvcry Cop.
volitions should be held, Cincinnati is prominent,
Considering its location its aduptatiou to the rad
iating of the light of Anti-Shivery truth over the
darkor parts of our laud a moro important point
can hardly bo found ; and tho success that bas
attended tho efforts that hnto been made here
attests that there is not a more promising field.
We d , then, earnestly invito nil who ngrcn with
us that Slavery is a crime against God and roan,
and are willing faithfully to labor for its abolition
whatever other differonean may exist among us,
come together again in Convention, to deliberate
upon the great work we havo to do. And our
platform will bo free to all, whothcr friends
1 opponents, who desire candidly to discuss the great
principles of tho Anti-Slavery enterprise.
Confiding in tho blessing of Almighty Ood.
promised to every truo and right effort, we hope
make an impression npon tlie moral atmosphere
that shall vibrate to the extreme vcrgo of our slave
