'second, that immediate emancipation is the right
of tho slave and the duty of tho mastor. Thei
meeting opened with a prayer ufl'orcd bv the Ivor

a brief statement of the objects of tho Socioty.
The Key. Tiikouohk 1'ARkr.a was tho first speak

from tho southern lire's
Its delivery occupied

More thoro wag no born priesthood to stand be
tween the nation and it. Uod ; no Pope to entail
his nophew on the Church ; no Bishnp to claim
divine right over the peoplo nod stand between
thoin and their Uod ; no king to rido upon the

1 tho richest iu the world, savo one Enirland. But
far above the other feature, of tho country rUes
j the great American polilicul idea a self-evident
truth thnt caunot bo proved, because anterior to
all domoustiution that every man is endowed
with certun natural nml inalienable rights, nmong
which are, that all men aro equal, nnd that on this
great principle government must rest. Above
this mighty groundwork, this accumulation of
numbers, industry nnd wealth is Iho great Amer
ican religious idea that there is but one God, that
Christianity i the true religion, and that tho puro
worship of God consists in love and piety toward
Miin, and iu morality, benevolence nud philanthro
py toward man. What a glorious spectaelo docs
nil this present to tho foreigner tho Swiss, tho
German, the .Scandinavian and tho Irishman, as
each of them view it at a distance! ltut, alas
how ditl'eront is tho spectacle when they come horo
and seo tho actual state of our political relations.
When they land here, with nil their high hopes
and generous aspirations, what must be thoir
amusement and disappointment when they seo half
the land lilaclc Willi nluveryl vviien they see one
eighth of the entire population of tho country
counted a cattle, not citizens nt all, more human
material property, nninuils, things, to which the
ordinary licbts of huuiiiuitv must not be extended
Tho speaker then proceeded to show tho immense
area whicli Mavory covers, and tnat Its balotul
influence was to wido-spread that there wa not in
reality ac inch of free soil in tho land. The Star
and Stripes, w herever they wave from Florida to
Vancouver's Island, and from Maine to the shores
of tho Pacific, are but the standard of Slavery.
The speaker next contrasted the condition of New
York with Virginia, and then nlluded to the in
fluence of Slavery over tho loadinn politicians and
office-holders, both at the present moment and in
times past. . The Presidents have either been tho
direct representative ot tho slave power or its
silent and indirect supporters. lhe Supreme
Court is slavish in it teudeucy. So are tho ma
jority ot tlio senate, ana so lias been tne House ol

Enmity to the slave and to his race prevail every
where. Evan in Boston the school house is shut
aguinst the black man, and the door of the church
slammed in his face. Aftor considering the injust
ice dono tho slave in regard to education, he con
trasted the conduct of tne Gorman and other Eu
ropean emigrunt in relation to the question of
Slumry with that of tho Irish and tho itoman
Cutholio priesthood, whom he arraigned a being
always on the aide of Slavery. Ho then passed to
tho consideration of the policy of the Democrats
in extonding terri'.oi-y merely in accordance with
tho wishes of the South. . With relercnco to Cuba,
he believed that whatever method might be adopt
ed, to got possession of it, tillibustorism, purchase,
or open war, the attempt would be attended with
the groatest difficulties. The Spanish powor, to
gether with a tropical climate and the interest of

New-York in all I other respects she was certuinly
