compact between the free and the slave States, and
that wo protest against any American statcsiunn

LIBERTY OR DEATH.
Tho practical Patrick Henrys aro more numcr
than peoplo nre nwaro of. An instance of
most daring and oouragouus attempt to obtaim
boon of liborty lias just conio to our knowledge
The steamship Keystone State, which arrived
this port on Saturday morniui;, had just entered
Delaware Bay, whon n man was discovored secre
ted outside the vessel, and under the guards.
Wheu broucht from his hiding placo, he was found
to be a fugitive slave, who had secreted himself
thoro More the vessel loft Savannah on Wednes
day, and had remained in that placo from the
of starting t His position was such that the water
swept over and around him almost constantly.
Ho had some broad in his pocket which he had
fur subsistence until ho coould reach a
of liberty. It was saturated with sea water
dissolved to a pulp. When our re'adors remembor
tho high winds of Friday, aud the sudden change
to cold during that uignt, and the fact that the
had remained in that situation three
nnd nights, we think it will bo conceded that
fully earned his liborty, and that tho " institution,"
which was so intolerable, that he was willing
run the risk of almost certain death, to escape
it, had no very great attractions for him.
Fut the poor man was doomed to disappointment.
The Captain ordered the vessel to put into
Castlo, whore the fugitive, hardly able to stand,
was taken to jail, where ho now awaits tho order
of his owner iu Savannah. Philadelphia lleg.
W)iut language can oxpress the abhorrence which
ull human hearts must feel, nt tl.o dastardly
duct of that Captain and his accomplices. How
it possiblo he could sond this hero back to chains,
from which he had escaped through such danger
and suffering T llor doos slavory eradiate
sympathy, and oblitoruto all magnanimous
nnd noble sentiments f The knowledge or bis
roism and fortitudo should have commanded
universal burst of admiration, and secured for
ror life, that liberty he prized so highly. It would
havo effected this on any other hearts, than
ou which slavery had dono its foulest work.
