the outrage of pcrsonul violence perpetrated nponi

the former was not tho act of tho citizens of our

Mr. Cutting, a Democratic Hard of New York,
as our rcadora will remember, was the mnn to move
the reference of the Sonne's Nebraska Bill, to the
Committco ol the Whole in tho llouso of Represen
tatives, he also mndu a very tcmperuto speech, not
against tho bill itself, but against sonic of its pro
visions. Ho evidently duircd a discussion of the
bill and to prevent baity, final action, ns its leading
friends desired. But this was nn ode iho to be vis
ited with tho overseer's lash, for this ho was pub
licly insulted, and compelled to bear the stigma ol
coward among cowards, or bravo a duel. Thus
was designed to administer sumo w holesome ad
monition to bolting Democrats. He who would not
' provoke the basest insult or bravo a duel, must
vote for slavery as tho overseers should dictate.
Tho challenge was passed, nnd rumors of a fight,
of wounds, and even of a fatal termination, of the
affair, were rife a few days since. But it has all
"been settled, ns tho follow ing from the cngrossiotial
t proceedings of Friday last will show :
Mr. Preston last Friday rose and said : It is vei
- in tbo memory of this House, that the debate whlc).
recently occurred between Mr. Cutting, of Now

So far ns Mr. Cutting is concerned, he referred
the matter in controversy to bis friends, (.'ol. Mon

So far as Mr. Brcckcnridjro is concerned, ho re
' ferred tho matter to Col. Harvkiu.i, of Kentucky,
I nm authorized by theso gentlemen to state that
the matter in controversy lias been settled in
manner mutually satisfactory, and, wo conceive,
honoralilo to both gcntlemon who woro engaged
that debate. I havo another duty to perform
' behalf of these centlemcn, and that is, ns thoy
havo violated in dohato tho rules of ordor cstub-
lirhcd for the government of tho House, they ex
press mutual rogrct that any such occurrence has
takeu place, and ask its indtil-rcnco, ns a body, for
its occurrence. It in a sourco of gratification
these gentlemen, who mnke strong promise of lu
turo usefulness to tho country, nnd w ho are olrcadv
admired by a largo circle of friends, that this mat

It seems to us, that our penitentiary convicts are

EDUCATION IN LOUISIANA.
General education nnd slavery nro incompatible.
Every little whilo wo hear of emtio spasmodic ef
fort in tho slave States to establish sonic general
educational system. But it soon ceases j serving
only to recnl tho general and alarming w nut of ed

tion. She has a State Superintendent of schools,
who has visited them in till parts of the State, and
reported tho result of his Investigations to tho Leg

stuto of ignorance of the elementary branches of

This recommendation of tho Stnto Superinten

mnn, brave and firm, ns nil will admit, who rendj
tho following brief address, mado before Comniif-j
sioter Smith at his examination. From appear-1
the slave catchers could not have selected
a more unfortunate suldeet fur their western cpc-U,o
of intimidation. Mr. Iiootho in his brief
but eloquent address, speaks out the true spirit,
whic h thou-ands feel, but which many lack cour-
to express either in words or deeds. The

.V(i ,1 iV jleac Iht Court ;
I do not propose to reply to tho counsel for the
Slave-Catcher, on whoso unsupported oath I nin
arrested as n criminal, nnd nm now on trill for
liberty. I leave that task to my counsel. Hot I
wish to say n few words, nt this stago of tho exami
nation, in my own defence.
l or tho lirst timo in mv life, I am arrnicned
j ,cfure n tiibunal, invested jvith tho forms of law.
0n a etinrgo oi crime, llio warrant lor my ar-
rest charges me so that legnl fiction runs with
"iihuiciiWi aiding and abetting" the escape of a
human being from bondage. .
My answer to the cliargo is, that it is not Iruf.
Whatever "uid and comfort" I mny havo rendered
the hunted and battered fugitive, it w as only such
"aid and comfort" as the laws permit, ns humani
ty dictates, nnd as the plainest precepts of the
Christian religion required of me. on peril of my
soul. So far, therefore, from having tu reproach
myself with what I have done, 1 ought prehaps, to
bhimo myrclf for not having dono mure. Instead
of keeping, as I have dona, strictly within the
letter ol too law, porliaps 1 ought to have braved
tho penalty of thoso who broke opon tho jail, and
set an cxninplo of resistence to this Fugitive Law,
uy aiding in the torciiile rescue ol Glover.
But 1 knew that human bloodhounds were nn
my track, ready and oagor to pounce nn mo with
all tho authority nnd forco of tlio General Govern
mcnt, ami that din ro.lcral Courts anil l cdcrul
officials, who taKo so deep on iulereit iu this pro
secution, and whose suggestions havo been so vul-
uabla to tho prosecuting nttrancy, would rctoiee

May it please tho Court: I understand well, and
this community understands well, why I hnvo been
singled out by tho pruscculion. It is not because 1
am specially guilty, or moro guilty thnn hundreds,
whom the Mate-catcher's attorney would not think
of prusocuting, but because it is desired to make-
an tiuinjiie ot me, and tho Nave I'ower wants me
for a victim. That power wishes to introduce tbo

the District Atton.ey and this honorable Court to
crack it about my cars, ns'onc tlu.ught to be most
in need of such discipline. My conviction and
punishment, it is hoped, will striko terror into the
hearts of tho people, and compel them to stillo
thoso teclings nt humanity, implanted in every
human soul, which prompt them to feed tho hun
gry, clotho the naked, hide the outcasts nnd obey
tho commands of a merciful God, instead of the
edicts of cruel and wicked men.
I hnvo dono nothing in this ense, which, living,
I w ish to forget, or, dying, I would wish to blot out
of tho memory of mankind. Whatever may, be
tho finding of this Court, 1 stand acquitted in the
judgement, in tho hearts nnd consciences of all
who lovo Freedom, and luito oppression of all who
stand for Ol der, regulated by righteous law of all

and of nil who would die on tlio battle-field or on
the gibbet, rather than sacrilico their conscience,
deny their Maker, nnd surrendor their liborties
the vilest despotism tho sun ever shone upon.

posed to hnvo been murdered, has been found in
that district, and that nn Inquest wns held and
verdict rendered, imputing the net to a young gen
tinman of tho highest respectability, whose uniform
gentleness of deportment nnd amiable charaater
nro utterly irrccoucilablo with Iho commission
such a deed, in a normal state of mind. Wo under
stand that it is not probable tlmt any further judi
cial inquiry, nt the instaneo of tho Stato, will bo
practicable. The reason why no further investiga
tion is practicable, would seem to he the nbsenco
of any witness competent to give testimony in tho

for pouring Anti-Slavery truth upon tho hearts of
the people. W o will only sny that, since our Inst
Annual Convention, deeds hnvo been dono in our
Midst that warn us not to relax our efforts.
Our city, until within tho past year free from the
deen disarnca of having sent liack a poor fugitive
M bis chains, under thu Fugitivo Slavo Act, now
stands dotibly degruded.
Tho Constitutional rights of onr colored citizens
to protection hnvo been officially outraged. By
decision of one of our Judges upon tho Bench, they
havo been told that they nro to bo supposed tl.ives
until they havo proved their freedom ; nnd the
kidnappor, that he has nothing to fear from legal
justico if his victim has not frco papers iu his pock
et. Thus, virtually, is Ohio mado a Slave Stato.
During tho past year our Stato lias boon more
than ever used as a hunting-ground, frco tu all who
chose to run upon the trail of tho poor black man
and if tho efforts now being made by tha Slaevo
crats of Congress nro successful, not a foot of the
soil of the United States but muy soon be trodden
by a slave.
And still como wafted to us, on every breeze
that sweeps over our beautiful river, tho sighs and
gruaus of millions of our countrymen, upon whose
dreary earthly condition Hope scurco sheds one
ray of light.
Among tho places in which Anti-Slavery Con.
veutiuns should be held, Cincinnati is prominent.
Considering its location its adaptation to tho rad
iating of tho light of Anti-Slavory truth over the.
darkor parts of our laud a more important point
can hardly bo found ; nnd the success that has
attended the efforts tlutt have been mado Iictc
attests that there is not a moro promising field.
Wo do, thou, earnestly invito nil who agree- with
us that Slavery Is A crimo ngninst Clod and man,
and are willing faithfully to labor fur its abolition
whatever othor differences mny exist among us, to
como together again in Convention, to deliberate
upon the great work wo havo to do. And our
platform will be free tu all, whether friends or
opponents, w ho desire'caudidly to discuss the groat
principles nf the Anti-Slavery enterprise.
Confiding In tho blessing of Almighty God.
promised to evory true and right effort, we hope to
make an iuiprossion upon the moral atmosphore
that shall vibrato to the extromo verge of our slave
