M. R. HULL.
Mr. M. R. IIull, of Indiana, for year known ns
nn ftbU edvocato of tlie laves emancipotWn; visit
d Salem lat week and delivered three lecture on
tbe subject in the Tuva Hall. Mr. Hull is a Re
publican, but deeply impressed with the impor
tance of elevating '.he Republican Standard to the
level of abolitionism imd for (his seems to be ear
nestly laboring. Whatever niny be the mutt of
uch an effort, Mr. Hull should hare the earnest
sympathy and zealous cooperation of all friends
f freedom in the party aud out of it. He certain
ly bai ours.
It was not our good fortune to listen to his nd
dresses, as we were absent attending meetings
Id Columbiana. A correspondent, whj Is very en
thuiiastie In bis admiration sends us the following
notice of bis addresses.
"Steel pen" once snid, in tbi Canfield Sentinel
tery dhg-erelly, " Salem you ore some." If his
appreciation of truth bears any decent proportion
to his funny proclivitios, he would ssy of three
tectures delivered by M. II. Hull, bad be hoard
'them, they were "some," and the andicnco "some,"
la other than a sarcastic sense. He would have
beard tbe speaker utttering naked truth, earnestly
and stentoriously, in such connection that every
listener would be compelled to appreciate
uch parts as were applicable to bis own condi
tion. Unwelcome truth is not unfrequently, perceived
to have special adaptation to others, and hence is
divided among them without rescrvingeven a pit
tance for the geuerous donor. Not so in the ro
oent course of lecturos, bere adverted to. The ut
terances were so conceived and so directed that bo
bowed denunciation of sin equally as applicable to
bristendom as to the bouse of Israel, nud better
till for us, he suspended them to two sides of the
Salem Hall. The pictures were so truthfully and
artistically drawn, that less than an amateur could
not fnil to see the likeness, and liko some portraits,
(for take whatever stand point of observation,) they
always look the observer straight in the luce, and
ay as plainly, as a picture can say, "I uicau jou;
Yes, thou art tbe man."
The lecturer is no abstractionist; great as is his
fund of amunitiun, he is too much of an econo
mist to waste it on vacuity or nonentity.
It will be conceded by some who felt hit, there
Mom is so much important truth brought to light
in three addrosses.
The miseries of Intemperance; the destruction,
the boreavements and the criminality of War; tho
unspeakable injustice, cruelty and entire demonia
cal character of slavery, we had often heard, but
never before were their magnitude so accurately
placed before us, or the portraitures drawn with
uch life like coloring.
The disuoursot were so conttived as to make
those feel, who nave hearts to foul and leisure to
attend to their palpitations, that we urc the supine,
taciturn sustainers of the evils, the lcrponsibiiiiy
for which wo are yrone to shift to other shoulders.
If the evils complained of did not exist arid tl:
question were up "shall they bo introduced?" ll.cn
might men tuke sides, and discussion would be
relevant; but they do exist; they nve proved to be
wrong by the meutal and moral vision as clearly
nod eelf-evidently as the physical organ of vision
sees the light of the sun; hence the quiet, inactive
looker on, is not merely negative; be is the jmti
tite sustainor and upholder of every wrong which
he does not oppose. This is not an ease giving
view of tbe subject, but it is the one tho lecturer
kept pretty constantly before us, as tho only one
wbicb can urge us to do for others vthut we should
wish to have dune fur ourselves under a chango ol
Borne ooe may say, "Hull talks too fast: he vo
ciferates and gesticulates painfully, if not to him
self, to the audience;" be it so; but bear in mind,
critic, that each workman docs Lest with bis own
tools. Tho lawyer could not plead successfully with
ort bis pack thicad; and how could the yankee
think without his stick to whittle?
But examine eurcfully, fasti Jious one, and ascer
tain whether it is not the matter rather than the
manner that offends, bear in mind there will conic-
day after to day, and have n caro that on that
day the memory of inertness and apathy, docs not,
ns in the case of Randolph of Uomiouk, require
that "Ileuiorse" be pencilled on both sides of your
Our neighbor ol tho lUi'um.iCAN is not en
well plcaed with Mr. Hull's labors. Wo copy
bis notice of tho addresses.
M. K. Hull of Indiana, formorly of Virginia lec
tured in the Town Hall, on Saturday evvuing and
Sunday, on the Slavery question. Mr. Hull is a
thorough going unti slavery man, and quite radical
in bis views. During bis course of lectures hero,
b said ma.iy good and true things; but at the
eauio time, we were sorry to tee, that he had fallen
into the error imhibod by the Stephen Foster class
of agitators , ol assuming a certain self right
eousness, self sanctifying position in relation to
every other person and party, and thcu sending
all to perditiou or eoma other country,
who did not look through his own mag
nifying glasses, uud see them just as he did.
He claimed to bo a staunch friend of "pure and
undented religion," but to us, seemed to excom
municate all who do not worship at hix shrine.
tlis charity extended mainly to thoso who ro
nounce Skibboltlh as he did. and tho church mem
bere, particularly were luvored with but little of
In this light we viewod Mr. Hull's lectures
in the same, in this particular, as we have ul
ways regarded Pillsbury'g and Foster, s and
Wright's claiming fur themselves to be the "light
of the world," and every body else "sittiin in
darkness." If we aro mistaken and are doing
Mr. Hull an injustice, wo lire willing to bo
oOLvinced of our error, and make all honorable
amends until thou, we will dismiss the subject,

TOBACCO vs. THE GOSPEL.
Not long sinco I was present at a meeting of tbe
Ladies Sewing Ciicle, connected with the Bap
tist Church in tliii place. Busy fingers were in
dustriously plying the needle, toiling to fiend the
gospel to the benighted heathen of distund lands,
and alow bum of conversation wont around the
room, perhaps expresire of sympathy .fur their
lust condition, and perhaps the iuterests of the
neighborhood was tho theme of the fair laborers ;
only an indistinct murmur of many voices fell
pon the ear of the spectator. There were pres
ent but three gentlemen ; two deacons and their
worthy pastor, who were engaged in animated dis
cussion of themes conneated with foreign missions
their prospects, hopes aud discouragements, causes
of success or failure etc. Prouiiueut among the
latter, was the heavy debt under which the Board
of Foreign Missions is laboring, a debt, if I mis
take not of some $00,000, which hangs like an
iooubus upon them paralizing all their efforts to
prosecute a vigorous warfare upon tbe strong
bolds of Satan; leaviug tbem eoarcly able to main
tain tbe ground tbey.now occupy, and wholly iu
eapubleof sending nut an sdvsne panrd into the
heart of the enemies country. Much regret was
expressed lit the Inability of tho church tn raise
funds sufficient to liquidate this debt, and to send
now missionaries into tbe field who arc now ready
to devoto themselves to the wink. An o.-stitnatc
4f)s mado by one of tho deacons, as to the amount
necessary to be raised by each individual member
of the churcn in America, In order to pay this
debt. By the aid nf his mental Arithmetic be
came to tho conclusion that the trifling sum cf
twenty fee cents to each person was all that was
required, and in a very melancholy tune expressed
his regrot that this could not be raised.
Whilo this conversation was going on be was idly
twirling a tohacco box in bis hands and rolling a
quid of tho vile weed 'as a swest morsol under
Tobacco and the Ootpcl 1 Very probably the
amount of this worse than useless drug, consumed
by members, of the church in one year would
pay that debt and leave a handsome surplus in
the treasury nf the Lord. To me it looked simply
ludicrous, the solemn gravity with which the
statement was made, and I feel half inclined to
enter a protest against its randor and sincerity,
when I reflect unon tho momentous importance of
the object, and see tho tenacity with which pco-
, .. . iiin. t i i i .
pie cling ton bad habit. Probably it never enter-
od into his calculations that he could pay that trifl-
inc sum man v times over, simnlv bv discarding
tobacco and applying the amount wasted for the
pernicious article, to tho missionary cause, tin"
inconsistent to mourn over perishing heathen who
aro famishing for the bread of Life, and make no
effort to save them.

Uns trifling circumstance led to a train
painful thought and my own thoughts became as
! gloomy as those to which I had been listening.

is groping in darkness, and inquiring minds are
saying "what is truth anxious to embrace it
in the love of it. Teachers of the law and ex
pounders of the gospel, differ in their answers to
this question and we sometimes turn from their
teachings w ith sad hearts, feeling bow great is the
moral darkness which envelops the so called chris

are sincere w hen they tell us that all light ema

were rejoicing over the change of govermentiil af

operations, but which has recently paused

remarked that the 'Lord was working in India

all expended upon those in foreign climes ; but for

GOVERNOR CHASE'S MESSAGE.
The Legislature of Ohio assembled on Monday
last. The Governor's Meseage is too long for our

The Governor proposes a modification of the
laws regarding the pioperty rights of Married
Women. He says -.
The stnte of the law in relation to Married
Women deserves your consideration. Our legisla
tion is already honorably distinguished by its pro
visions in their behalf, but much remains to lie
done. Many of tho beneficent ' provisions of the
civil law might be transferred, with benefit, to our
cdo. It is difficult to (.erceive any reason why a
wife, allowed to sue separately from he' husband,
be required to sue in the nuim- uf her next friend.
Instances not unfrequently occur of gross oppress
ion through the absolute control given to the
husband over personal estate, and particularly
over household goods. 1 can perceive no valid
reason why the wife may not be allowed a rironer

The original policy of tiio country was in har
mony with these ideas. It contemplated the ex
clusion of Slavery from National territories ; the
..e .i. 'i :.: - ..r .t. i
amelioration and final eradication of the groat
evil by tho action nf tho State Governments, w ith
out intervention or interference by National Legis
lation. "The abolition of Slavery," said Mr. Jeffer

America, said Mr. Jladison, vpeaking at the
close of the vnr in behalf of tho Aniericnh Con
gress "that the lights lot which she contended
were the rights of human nature." "There is
but ono proper way," said George Washington
speaking at a still biter period of iha abolition of
Slavery "by which" it can be accomplished,
and that is by legislative authority, and this, so
far as my sufi. agfl can go, shall not bo wanting."

fln, 0,, carileii,v appeahng for protection nnd
aid. Of llic-e appeals one was in the form of an
affidavit from eleven citizens imprisoned under va
rious charges at Lcconip.nn. The eleventh, an old
man nf scv only years, a snldior near half a century
ago under Jackson, was still a citizen of Ohio, nn
a visit to some friends in the Territory. The real
oflcuco i f all was thv defence nf l ieo Statu homes
against Slave Slntn invasion. Their seizure, their
ini i i innn lit their indictments, mid their cruel
treatment, coii:itoto a dark chapter in the dark
history of wrong nnd outrage in Kansas.
On receiving this appeal I thought it right to
address nn earnet t letter to Gov. Geary in behalf
f tho prisoners
I also sent for their immediate
relief a sum nf
lnniiey contributed by private
beneficence, which, however, failed to reach tho
ilcstiuatiitn in consequence of tho necessary return
of the gentleman to w hum it was entrusted with
out having entered the Territory. It gives me
pleasure to info, in you that most of thco prison
ers have since escaped or have been acquitted. I
am not awuro that any ouo of them yet remains in
Another of these communications comes from a
Committee uf Ohio settlers in Ki.nsn, rep.csent
ing, that the emigrants from Ohio number several
hundred: that they emigrated to Kan.tax in the
full laith uf pe.icu and protection: that they held
no doctrines other than such ns are common in
Ohio: that, coming from a Freo State and holding
such sentiments, they are practically disfrin
chised by odious test oaths : that many of their
number have been killed : many robbed ; nnd all
subjected to grievous indignities and injuries:
that they have appealed in vain to the Federal
Government fur projection : nnd that tho strife,
which has nt present ceasod, may recommence at
any moment, i hen a new nttempt shall bo made
to enforce the spurious code of nn alien legislature.
In the event of a new outbreak, thcto settlers ask
the protection of Ohio.
The other coiiiinunicatioiis detail tho circum
stances nf particular outrages.
These representation cannot bn properly disre
garded. As an equal member ol tho confederacy,
Ohio is entitled to demand for her citizens emigrat
ing to the Territories, free ingress und egress by
the ordinary route, end complete protection from
invasion, from usurpation and from lawless
violence. If tho General Government refuse this
protection I cannot doubt the right or the duty of
the State to intervene.
There are good grounds, however, for tbe hopo
that the woi st is over in Kansas. From tho Free
State press of the Territory, nml from other re
liable s rurces, assurances me received that peace,
order and security are reestablished, for the
present at least, within its limits. Many of the
most dangerous of the murauders have left tho
Territory, and a disposition is manifested by the
present Territorial Governor, to respect the rights
of Free Stato Rattlers. There is reason to expect
that the most obnoxious acts of the IVemlo-Lcgis-lature
will be abrogated, and that the bad deign
of tbe repeal of tho Missouri Prohibition, will be
defeafd by tho virtue nud intelligence of the
Meanwhile there is much distrets occasioned by
llm i.itiii rii..i.n,....a ..-i.;..i. ..i;..r Il in
gratifying to observe that the propriety and duty
of affording this relief is recognized by the humane ,
and liberal of nil parties. The people of Ohio
will, I doubt not, approve whatever you may find
it expedient nnd necessary to do in order tu pro
tect the emigrants from thn suffering, disease and
duuih to which they are exposed.
Such, geuulemen, are thn views irhich I have
thought it mv duty to submit to vou. I shall re
joice if they moet your approval and the approval
ot our common constituents. Should it be oilier
wise, I shall still rejoice if, supplying my def-J't
and correcting my errors, your legislutii n shall lie
wiser nnd better than my suggestion. Among thi
Stntes of the Union, Ohio holds no secondary
place. Surpassed by many in extent and by two
in population and woabb, she confesses inferiority
to none in the elements which uonttitute tbe true
rreatucsK nf a State. Great in power, great in re
sources, she is greator still in her unsullied faith,
in her goal for education, in her sympathy witb
Buoeriiip, in Her bielity to right, and in her devo
tion to liberty. These are the jewels iu her crown
of honor, Let it be our honnrabb ambition to pre
