THE WINCHESTER RIOTS.

May, 12, 1834. j
Tbe physical forco argument adoptod by the
women ot Y inchostcr, in tho tupprossion of the
ruin trnflic, ba called forth a good deal of lauda
tory criticism from the press. No doubt much of
thi is owing tJ editorin gallantry. For it can
nBru'J postime mat any nignor principle it at
the root of it. Tbe Lily, of course, mutt be an
exception, a it claim the hiuh honor of beinc
conducted eolely by women. The Lily thus con
cludes an article upon the (ubjoct t " May the good
work begun by the women of Winchester, be per
tcvercd in. Let them not cease their labor ; let
their xonl and determination never faltor or grow
cold, but let Ihom keep a steady eye on the too,
and be ready for an attack whenever he manifest
a disposition to resume his fiendish work, and
their triumph will in tho end be complete." The
, Lilu is a paper intendod to iterate woman a nancr
hiyurst mierest. i et the Lily ap-
courso taken by the women of Win-
Chester, anil call, their exhibition of physical forea

utciiuf:., im-ii in. j,ny in ngiu, mm iruinon uugilli
to ciuii together, make exciting speeches, arm
themselves with weapons, and prococd to the work
of destruction. Dut it appears to bo rather an tin-
elevating course of training for the fair onct cf
tbe land. The Lily must have an exulted viow of
" good work" for the womon. But it it to suppress
the rum traffic. What then becomes of woman's
boastod moral power, if she must " kcop a steady
eyo ou tho foe, and be ready for an attack" with
hatchets 1 The advocates of Woman's Right have
mado the moral argument their strongest position.
" Tho presence of women," eay they, "at the hut
tings or at public meetings, would have a softening
influence upon tho other sex it would purify and
oluvato public sentiment." Truly, a mob of " Spar
tan Indies" dashing into tho midst of an election
meeting, ufter tho fashion of the Winchostor Indict
into a grog shop, would have an ennobling influ
ence on the public, mind. Yet who can eay such
would not be tbo case, when wo find tbe fair advo
catoof physical force in tho Lily justifying fouii-
nino riots. On the other baud, the opposcr of
A Oman's KighU have said : 'thatl allow women
to go. within the contaminating influence of an
election mob? Woman! naturally to retiring, to
kind, to gentle, and so modest? Preposterous
How corrupting how demoralizing! However
anomalous it may appear, the doings at Wincherter
triumphantly refute both those positions.' The
Woman't Right man ctn no lunger advance the
moral argumeut. Nor can the anti-Woman ' Right
man exclaim, with tickish eentimentalism, " Oh
these women are too soft, too tender, too gentle,
too amiable to compete with tho rowdies and ruffi
of the opposite sex."
Those who have the moral training of the youtli
in baud will find their efforts forever unavailing
vhey exhibit iu their on n lives a reckless diHrfi.i-.l'P''0-''1"''!'-
for order and peace. What impression would the
rather make upon Ins child, if constantly preach
ing tbo superiority of morul suasion, nd at the
sumo tiuio duily applying the Lish? If it be tup-
poaeu uiai tno motner endeavor to inculcate the
i u'"'" principle of purity, ia ber example of et

In all thing portaining to life tbore it no back'

not be the same a yesterday or Inst year, or in
childhood. That which is thought, felt, or expres
sed, I ortrert we may think, fed or ak differ
ently at another time, but tho past hath received
the impress of iu surroundings, and no effort of
human power can change it. It I In rain thnt w
say " 'twas an idle word, I rocnll it," yet it may
prevent the like error again, and thus are w our
own teacher, or th life which mil, Influences the
life which it.
No one ought to allow the energy of mind to
languish, or yield to the teeming ill of adrerso
circumstances, and I never could realize that "to
bear, it to conquer our fate," for not trc but it con
quer, and we have made no advance in any way.
I mean not that the thousand difficulties which
society hot, and (till it inflicting on itself, will not,
at many limos, weary th heart and wound the
spirit, but au ever open thought, or effort, for the
best way will enable ut to go round if we cannot
mount orer, and a "labor i life," so will the
effort have it reward. ,
We may not nlway act for th beat, perhaps
that very betl lias become o beclouded by ialtet,
that we cannot ee it in tbe obscurity; but with a
heart full of life' higher aspirations, and a heart
searching fur the true, we shall surely know of the
joy which are the a:in and end of existonce.

Snlcm, Ohio. Jane 19,1834.
Has been tent back to Slavery from Boston. A
more coolly planned Insult to the North could not
have been devised, nor can wo conceive bow its
elocution could have been made more humiliating.
The South had just repudiated it contract with
freedom, in ipit of remonstrance unexampled in
earnestnese and number. It bad stolen thousands
of iquare mile of free soil front free labor, and
cursed it with slavery, and while yet th cannon
were belchiug forth its fiendish triumph over this
repudiation and piracy, lackeys are sent to Boston,
to teat the subserviency of Massachusetts and the
North, by a man hunt. The place tno. It was
Botton in the shadow of Bunker Hill, where It
was supposed there wa tome remnant of the spir
it of those noble touts, who indignantly resisted
the military despotism of King George.
It wa Botton, where Anti-Slavery had had its
tent and centre for a quarter of century. And
the time. It wa that of the three day session of
the Now England Convention (the fruitful moth'
er of anti-alavery assembling,) nnd of tho Freo
Soil State Convontion. A time when tbe working
Anti-Slavery of Massachusetts aud Now Kngland
were assembled, whon they could bo insulted to
their fucos, and taunted with the manifest evidence
of their feebleness, and tlio overwhelming power
of thoir euemy. Slavery challenged the anti-slavery
of the State to see it march a slavo by day
light throngh the street of their capitol to slavery
to tee biin surrendered to his fato by a Boston
commissioner of respectability, aud of revolution
ary and patrician blood. It challenged thorn to
see thoir law subverted their State power anni
hilated in the presence of the central despotism at
Washington. It challenged them to submission
hy th pretence of 184 ruffians, with tT. S. arms
and uniform, who pointed those arm at Boatou
citixent, and compelled Boston wen quietly to ub-
nut to their indignities, witn their artillery cnargeu
with grape thot, and ready to rake their itreett
and make them flow with blood. And most hu
miliating of all, to tee these hired ruffians, sus
tained in guarding thi poor, lone Anthony llurni,
in tho Boston slave pen, by tome f 00 citixen sold
iers of MostachusetU, who wore ready to shoot
down their noighbor and fellow citixons, if tbey
did not smother their humanity and indignation,
and quietly submit to tho outrage, upon Burnt,
upon thomselvot, upon their Stato and country.
Thus outrageous wa slavery in It insolence,
and iu every point it ha succeeded. The aboli
tionist are tpit upon Massachusetts with her
million of inhabitants, i insulted and hor power
annihilated. The law of Virginia are triumphant
orer Masaehusett she and ber sister state may
as well dismiss their legislatures and sate tbe ex
pense of their Govornor'a salaries, unlett they are
prepared for resistance, and resistance even unto
blood if need bo.
Ther wa strong indignation, and deep fceliug
of mortification and humiliation. But there was
no resistance. No real attempt at rescue. But
only submission. Tbe people evidently felt
the power of the government waa against them,
and they wore not propared for treason and rebel
lion. Shame on them that they were not, while
their city wa in th hand of troops, and foreign
er as soldiors, were quartered in thoir court house
to exolude citizens, and teour the enslavement
one of their number on their own toil, and in thoir
But though poor Burn ha gone to slavery
and Masaehusett is dishonored and alavery
mad with joy at her hellish triumph yet we are
not without hope. Much wa done in Button last
week to bring the people to the point of resistance.
They learned fast, lust week, tbe true character
and purpoee of slavery. Union with tuch perfidi
ous men must have lost much of it marvelout
tacrednest, and kidnapper Suttle, the V, 8. troops,
and Virginia threats to Senator Sumner, with oth
er accompaniment, have impressed upon the peo
ple a lesson which anti-slavery men have ever in
oulcated, but fur which, with tbe niass, they have
failed to tecur credence or even attention. ' The
beteiging of our cities the garrisoning of our
court house to enforce Virginia law, wilt touch
the pooplo if often enough repeated. But we
doubt whether Suttle will evor eontent again
vitit Boston on tuoh an errand, Wa then Id
glad to see him try it. He might succeed again.
But he would find that Boston wa tht wiser for
hi present visit. ' ..,.,,,..

THE NEXT STEP.
Wa Um that th Stat of Virginia t about W
press her claim to th right of her citlxon to take"
their slave to free State, at their pleasure. Jon
athan Lemnion, a Virginian, took hi ilave td
Now York, a our reader will temember oa bi
way to Arkansas, rather a round about way, at the
NewTork Judge thought, nnd he accordingly die
charged th .lave on a writ of habeas corpus, from
the service of their master. The New York cotton
merchant paid Mr. Lemmon about two price for
hi discharged chattol. Northern Virginia think
ing this good opportunity to transform Nw,York
to a slav State, appealed Hid question, and i now
about to pre a decision, if possible, in her favor.
And with such a court a decide what ia law ror
this nation, we do not see why the should not sao'
ceed. New York ha consented with alacrity to
catch and bold irgiuia slaves when they stray
from their masters, and w do not see wby they
should refuse this friendly sorvico, when the master
himself accompanies them to look after their Inter
ests. Of course, tho principle once (ottled that
they may take them to the State, they may remain
and hold them so long a they ploase ; fur to turn'
such honorable men at slaveholder out of th'
Stato would not be once to bo thought of or toler
ated. Of thia the Tribune lays i
"The modest demand of Virginia ia substantially
that slaveholders may bring their .lavot to New
York, go to Saratoga with tlicrii, and turn the whit
men of the Stato into a committeo to watch them,
and tee thnt they do not run away from their mat
tor. Thlt it one of the first steps towards that
gloriou consummation looked for by Toombs, when
he shall triumphantly rail the roll of bit slaves on?
Slavery has now secured all the remaining un
nrgnniicd territory of the nation for herself, anal
now, a there are no more land in that direction
to conquer, she turns her effotts to the subjugation
And the question
' f th organfiej free States,
wji now bo pressed lo a settlement a question in
no ws). ond to that which has just boon decided
against liberty, by Congress.
- Will our people tee that tliore it and can be no
cessation in the demands of slavory, until iht-ha
tubjugnted all to herself?
Tho clergy of tho country eem more than'
usually aroused to tho importance of doing;.
something ngaiust slavery. On our outside
to-day may bo found a letter from Dr. Peck, a dig--'
nitary in the Methodist church, which certainly
nininlests a real progress, since the time when ha.
advocated submission to tbe fugitive law. Thar
multitudinous remonstrance to Congress against
the Nebraska iniquity, is another indication of their
purposes, and of the progress of the pooplo. . We
see also numerous resolutions of ecclesiastical'
bodies, somo of them strong and much to the point
True the Presbytoriun Assemblies show a conserv
atism which Whig political conventions now-a-dayt
would not fail to shame. But even th cowardly
New School Aatembly could not quite escape agi
tation, a it teem by the following account of
their proceeding on the 20th ult., from th Tri
bune's report, though it resulted in nothing but a
little agitation. But that it wholesome.
After tho sudden adoption of the no-action report
on the tubject of Slavery yesterday morning, there
was no little exultation innuifestoa on the part of '
some, but in the afternoon the Assombly had a
scene which show, how full the public mind it of
thi. one all-absorbing subject. A we.tern man,.'
Prof. Sander, o far a. appearance and declara
tion prove anything, w ithout the least idea of dol
ing anything to excite heat, moved to postpone
.oiiio unfinished business in ordor to introduce '
resolution expressing the erief of this body at th'
Nebraska and Kansas bill now before Cougrc.,
In an instant tho wholo Assembly wot in an ex
cited state, but from different causes. Some nauf
unto any discussion of slavery at any time, other
believe thnt as an Assembly wo have said and donn
all we can, other thought that the body having so
much business yet to do, ought not to wnstetts timiv
in doing again what has bcon done, and still other
burn with tool to bear a fresh testimony against
Slavery, and especially against the "Nebraska
villainy," at one of them called it yesterday. Per--oral
capitul speecbot wero made, and showed that,
this last stride of the slave power is viewed with
the deepest abhoirencc. After tbe ditcutsion had
proceeded tome time, the moderator being called
on to decide the point of order, ruled Prof. Sander's
j motion out of order on the ground that thi being"
new businett could not be received except through
, me vommiitce on unit anu overtures. An appeal
wa taken and the decision of the moderator re
versed by a very decided majority. At tl o'clock,
nftor several speeches from Mr. Perkins of thi
city, Dr. Brainord, Mr. Mill. Mr. Dobie, Mr.
Spencer, Ac, the motion to postpone the unfinished
businett wnt put to vote and lost. Thit it no in-'
dicntion of the feeling of the House on the Ne
braska question, but only on the auhject of it'
being introduced at thi point. ' ' '
Among the resolutions we tec, we copy tbe fol
lowing of the Council Bluffs Association, an Asso
ciation ou the very bordors of Nebraska. ' If the'
clergy of that region will but tako intelligent and
decided action, they will do much toward expelling'
slavery from that region, ,
Wo find the resolution In the Council Bluff
1. Res. That we regard tbe Tcuiooranco reform.
a tho legitimate rotult of tbe direct application of
Gospel prineiple to the improvement of society. ..
2. Rot. That the triumph of these principle
demands the united effort of Christian, and that
thi Association recommend the churches in their
connection to mak a combined effort for the adop
tion of a Maine Liquor Law at the next e.sion of
1. Ret. That American Slavery It not only
foul blot on our national character, which counter
act the benign influence of our republicanism ia
favcr of freedom in other land, but i also at war
with our own freo institutions, and a moat formioV
able obstacle to the success of the Gospel in our
country. . ..
2. Res. That we as an Association cannot bo
truo to the cause of Christ without actively and
openly opposing this itupendou wrong.
3. Ret. That the reoent attempt to open Nebras
ka to slavery and the movement in reference to)
Cuba, both reveal the insatiable character, of sla

on the part of the friendt of freedom for its entire,
and final overthrow.
A PxocLAMATtox. President Pierce ha issued
