Thif exepljonf, paper has been romovcd of Yollow
Spriugs, Urecfl Co., ., and Is qui 10 Improved in
it appearance. Of the religious papers of this coun
try, th Proshytorian la one of tin most thorough
and reliable on the question of freedom. Mr Our
don it ft most sincere and ftrdent friend of the
slave, nndbe leaves no opportunity unimproved
to advocate and urge his claims. Wo wish the Pres
byterian abundant success in its new locality.
The Number of the paper before as contains an
article headed the 'Two Manners' from which we
mnke some extracts. Tho editor as he tins fre
quently done before, Is advocating a higher Stand
ard for political nnti-sl.very, dissatisfied as we
think lie has just occasion to be with the Free Soil
. Speaking of the platform for John G. Whittior's
League for Freedom, which we have heretofore
copied and commented on, Mr. Gordon sny.1 :
THE TWO It AN XL US. .
John 0. Whittior, In the Xatiuiial Era, of April
5th, calls upon "those who are willing to stand on
the question of Slavery where tho fathers of the
Itepulilio stood,' to "unite, irrespective of party
names, to form a LEAtiiEor Freedom the nucleus
of a mighty organisation throughout tho country."
Vpon the banner, which Is to float over this new
organisation, be proposed to inscribe t
"No slave territory,
' No more slara States.
The General Government relieved from all ro
eponslbllity for Slavery.
No interference by the General Government with
Slavery in tho slavo Slates.
No interference with the right of jury trial, the
writ of habeas corpus, and other guarantees of
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, in the
Slavery loft to itself in tho States which cherish
It,-without any extraneous aid or comfort to recon

Froo Soil baimor of IS IS and 1S52. In all nssen
tial points, we think there is no a leaneein:nl up
on tbe-dvetrinesof the Buffalo or Pittsburgh Con
vention. It contains the samo old spirit of com-
Jvrnmiso ami conciliation that has taught tho slave
lolders themselves to despise us. We had foudlv
Jiopod th.it the recent astounding developments of
the reckless, audacity and unscrupulous dishonesty
of the .Slav rWuf, had served to open the eyes of
the old Guard of Liberty, nt least, to the absurdity
of attempting to maintain this half-way position.
It would Seoul strange, that Anti-Shivery mon had
boon able for so long a timo to retain evau their
selj'-rsspent, while maintaining a position so oon
Ulietory and absurd. . But it would not have boon
strange if they had lost tho respect and contldonco
of their opponents.
The first three planks of tho abovo platform, (if
we may bo allowed to cUnnjre the figure,) nro sound
and should bo rotn!nod. Tho fifth pUuk needs a
little pntchiug. . We should striko uut tho words
"in the free Malts." The rights therein doclurod
wre as inalienable, and should lo as in the free
States. Tho fourth and sixth pltnks we would
toss ovorboard as rotten, worthless and tinsca
worthy. It is strange that wo should so long hivo been
accustomed to rango tho above principles side by
sido, without precoivlng their iii'!i.iigriiounes ;
or that seeing the inconsistency, wo had not blush
ed to maintain it. Let us take for fxnmplc the
'third and fourth :
"The General Government relieved from all re
sponsibility, for Slavery."
"Xo interference by the General Government with
Slavery in the slavo States."
Now, do not these, two propositions involve a
palpable absurdity ? How can the General Gov
ernment bo relieved from nil responsibility for si a
iery, and yet not interfere with it in tho slavo
States f To our mind the proposition is ineontro
trotcrtiblo that the General Gocemment is resmn
te fur slavery whenever narvrv exists within the
Xational domain, and for the simple reason that
he has aniplo power, in tho Constitution, to
abolish it every where within thoso limits, and
failing to exercise that power, she becomes i-wiwm-lilile
tot its continuation. And this responsibility
ii tho more pressing bocauso the General Govern
ment ahne has this power. Tho state, individu
ally, have no power to lnter'erc with tho local mat
ters of each other. T. '., me, in tins respect, ii
an individual ni 1 independent sovereign1-. No
national ronie''., lor slavery could thcrcloro be pro
vided but hv tho Gonar.il Government itself.
We said somo timo sinco t'.at thu liidcpcndanl
lcmoorats had committed a radical error in ad
mitting, for tho sake of conciliation, that the Gen
eral Government had no power over Slavery in tho
Slave States. We think so still. We have thus
been guiltvof tho groat inconsistency of niaiiit.iiu
Ing, on nil occasions, that tho opponents of slave
ry had a controlling majority in tho Convention
that framed the constitution that they resolutely
determined not to admit the sanction of slavery
Into the Constitution, and did not admit it, and yet
that they Jul admit it.
After an argument in favor of the anti-slavery
character of thn Constitution, the Editor adds:
Now in view of nil these faots, to say that ala
Tery shall be "left to itself in tho States that cher
ish it," that there shall bo "no interference by tho
General Government with slavery in tho slave
Status," and yot that "tho General Government"
shall be "relieved from all responsibility for slave
ry," is a proposition so equivocul and absurd that
it never cuu bocome "the nuclous of a mighty
organisation throughout the country ;" for the
might of an organisation consists not so much iu
it numbers, as in the rectitude of its principles
and the consistency with which they are adhered to.
We have had enough of compromising with slave
holders: and tho platform proposed by Mr.Whittier,
as well as that of the Free Soil Conventions of 1848
and 1852, have been nothing less than compro
mises. We go now for "carrying the war into
Africa." We claim the constitutional power to
abolish slavery everywhere within tho nationnl do
main, and shall insist that this power be activly
employed to that end. If this shall lead to a dis
solution of the Union, (which we do not anticipate,)
we shall thank God for the ridanco ; for a Union
that has to be maintained by trampling down the
claims of justice and merer, and sheltering uuilor

A now temperance law has passed both branches
of the Ohio Legislature. It excepts wine of Ohio

Dear Fmikkd, As I am in a field of labor neverj'r

not be surprised whoa I say that It was not till
within a low davs that the Bugle of the 8th Inst. I
came Into my hands. When my eye rested on
the leltor from New Lyme, announcing tho sudden
death of our gifted and devo'tod J. W. Wolker, I

sidered his services abovo all price. But I have j
seen so much of him, anil therefore have not ,
been nblo so fully to appreciate him, as during the
past winter. We attended several Conventions
with In in In Michigan. Mr. Foster and myself
were equally surprised and dulightod to find how
powerful a speaker he was. We often remarked to
our frionds, that he had made greater improvement
within the three last years, than any other person
within the circle of our acquaintance. Not un
frequently his power over his audiences was abso
lutely irresistible. IIu carried friends aud foes all
along togother, whether they would or no, and
compelled them to do hoinao to his cause. After
such triumphs, my husband would go to his cham
ber, and w hen we were alone, say to me, that he
felt that ho was never made for a public speaker.
He realised so deeply his lack of ability, whon
listoning to such oloquence. For myself, I always
felt that the ono talent must not be withheld from
suib a work as must be performed before the slaves
shall be free.
Yet one word about his spirit of devotion and
self-sacrifice, I need not speak of more than ono
instance, to illusthtto this trait In his character.
His family was largo. He was in need of fundi.
Still, whon, last winter an offer of $18 por week,
with all oxpenses borne, was made him, to accom

for. The people, at large, are eager to investigate
tho whole question, nnd, I doubt not, that Indiana
will be as ready to wipe out the black code as was
Ohio, when the American Society shall have done

be the opposition, of course, ns there wo find

large an admixture of tho 'poor trash' which, with
all its moral and intellectual degradation, slavery,!
after cursing with its heaviest curses, has crowded
north of the Ohio. Still, there is a sufficiently
large element of Intelligence in tho northern and
central portions of tho State, when called into ac

its exocrablo block eode. Aftor the coming harvest
we must have a largo corps in Indiana.
