Choctaws and Cherokee are slaveholders, nnd
would ad J another slavehol l.ii! State to t lie con
federacy. The treachery of Buchanan has given
Kansas to the North ; let the Smili hefore it is too

a free State of Kansas. Memphis Enquirer, July
For moro than thirty years, misi-innnry labor
has been largely ex pel. deil among those tribes ol
ludiims, anil judging tnly lnin tlie number of
"converts" auU tlie improvement of tbo Indians, in
teniperance, agriculture, education, and other
things, concerning which the missionaries sought
to exert an influence, or-gave instruction to them,
is encouraging, -
Against the sjstein of slavery, ns it exists in the
neighboring states and among their tribes, "it has
not been the aim ol tlio uiisinnnries to exert any
direct influence, either by their public or private
teachings;" "must of them have unih.rnily avoided
this topic in their public administrations," "they
have received slaveholders into the communion of
the church," and declined to "make it a test of pi
ety, or u condition of admission to the privileges
til the church, that a candidate should express a
determination not to live and (lie a slaveholder."
In giving instructions to church members, "the
relation of the Chrislian master to his slave, either
as to its lawfolness or its continuance, they hare tint
disturbed, and litllt has been said to him culling in
question the J'undameutul principle this system."
If from tliu toi!iiinin tlie missionaries to the
Therokees and Clioctaws had acted on the princi
ples of the American Missionaty Association, and
had labored to exert u'direct influence against slave
ry as they did against intempprance, how different
would have been the prospect of those tribes.
Then every enlightened friend of Christian liberty
nnd pure Christianity would have hailed with joy
the prospect of their admission to the L'nion. N ow
we can look forward to it only with dread, us a
thing to be resisted and prevented, so long as they
maintain their present institutions, if we would
avoid the threatened judgements of God
The character of tba Uws under which the new
State will be likely to eouie iu. may be judgod of
from i s present ones.
Tho Choctaws have the following :
"Be it enacted, &.C., That frcm nnd after tho
passago of this tct, if any citizen of the United
States, acting ns a missionary, or a preacher, or
whatever las occupation may be, is fou:,d to take
an'aclive part in iuvoring the principles and no
tions of the most fatal and destructive doctrines of
Abolitiouism, he shall be cuni nulled tu leave the
nation and for evnr stuv out ul it.
Ba it further enacted, &o., Tnat teaching slaves
Law to rend, to write, or sing in meeting-houses or
any open place, without the consent of the, urn.r,

sufficient ground to convict persons of laboring the
principles and notions of Abolitionism.
Be it enacted, &c, That no negro slave can be
emancipated in this nation, except by application
or petition of the owner to the General Council ;
Mid provided also, that it shall be mado to appear
to the Council, that tho owner or owners, at the
time of application shall have no debts outstanding
nginst him or her, either in or out of this nution.
Then, and in that rase, the General Council shll
have the power to pass an net for the owner to
emancipate his or her slave, which negro, after be

after the passage of this act. Anil i.i case said
free negro or negroes sha'l return into this nation

such sale shall he u-ed ns national funds."
Among the Cherokees is a law, as follows :
"Be it enacted by the Na'ional Council, That
frjni and after the p issaga of this act, it shall not
be lawful for nny person or persons whatever, to
teach any free negro, or negroes, not of Cherokee
blood, or any slave belonging to any citizen or tit
izens.of this nation to lead or write." The penal
ty annexel to tho violation of this enactment, is a
fine of $100 toJjfcMU, at tho ditcietion of the court.
DESPAIR OF THE UNION.

would afford just and uqoiil in its taxation and

the Union our fathers supposed they had bequeath

Turn to the North, aud see tho nnzry sectional
ism which lilts its stern and deadly menace of our
institutions. Listen to their pulpits, proscribing
us as unworthy of Christian fellowship and asso

and scorn upon our pretensions cf equality with
them. Look at the General Government cheated

vilified, hated, degraded. We are no longer equals
with the North. We are nn longer one people.
ihe people ol tlie slave hiui free sti.tea are as die

It ts not possible, iu our judgment, tu keep them
together, urder one government, on terrrs of
equality. One of them must be the master. The
inevitable course of things proclaims thai the mas'

North in the Union must be the ruin of the South,
not only every principle of liberty and of man

PAYNE AS KIDNAPPER.
The Cleveland Leader tells tbo followinir storv of
Payne, tho Democratic candidate for Governor.-)
It transpired in 1841, while Payno w as a member
of the firm of Payne & Wilson :
A fellow calling himself l.lntenbcrger.applicd to
this firm for legal assistance to recover two runa
ways, w hieh he claimed as belonging to an aunt of
his at the South,nnd that tin y were then at Buffalo.
They then set about to contrive a plan to decoy the
slaves from Buffalo. Accordingly Lintenger, ami
a colored man by the name of Jaoksoti. wcte sent
to Buffalo, accompanied by the Junior an counsel,
to carry out their detestable plan. This trio suc
ceeded in their effort, by representing t tho slacs
that theyuotild obtain more profitable einplovment
in Cleveland. Alter the trio had returned to this
citv from BofTalo, they forthwith bad the slaves in
carceruted iu juil for ealo-kceiiing till thev should
bo remanded into slavery by one of lio Judges of
our Court. 1 ho case soon clime to the knnwlcuge
of the "Abolitionists, ' as the frienils of Ireedoni
were called in those days. They initnudiatcly
had the slates bailed out. One of them, in com

get evidence of their freedom, and ninke a com

that Pxyne tried to persuade him or recommend
him to forfeit his bail, hopii g thereby, to recover

to listen to sucu a iiasa proposition. Un their ar

In the meanwhile. Lintcnbercer and Jackson

were tieing turned, decamped lor pans unknown,
leaving Pavuo to tight the case out alone. After
a litigation that lasted a month or two one of the
slaves was set utlibortT.the other having previously
escaped from jail. This case having thus come to a
termination so auspiciously, the action against

A SOUTHERN VIEW O THE COMPENSATION
The Richmond Enquirer discusses Kliliu Bur
ritts compensation plan of emancipation as follows:
With duo deference to the patriotism, wisdom,
and discretion, of its originators, abettors, and
participants, we must bo allowed to express the
opinion that this "national" emancipation move
mint is among the most prestimptuuus, foolish, fa
natical and traitorous, evidences of abolition in
sanity we lotve witnessed lor some time. .Mr. Kli
liu Burritt may m.,un well, and he is, we beliete.
usuuby accounted a man id' information and
parts ; but in this instance ho udopts a novel uiodo
of uttescing either bis intelligence, ability, expe
rience, or patriotism. And to coroborate any sus
picions of sincerity of his philanthropic profes
sions, wo should certainly nut refer to the tact of
his advueucy ol an iiitiuiicipatinu Convention.
Among the signatures ot tins most egregious!;
agrogunt proimnaaineto, we observe the name
of un individual troiu one ol the Southern States,
That Slute we are proud to sny, is not Virginia ;
and tne individual in question, we have little
doubt, owes bis nativity to the North.
However Mr. KHhu Burritt and bis benevolent
cunjerees may deem it desirable "that some prac
tical and equilublo plan should he bro t lor ward,
by which the people of the North may co-operate,
iu a generous uud brothel ly spirit with tho people
of tho South, and share with ihetu tlio expense
necetsary to the extinction of Slavery, we beg
leave to suggest, for their ow n physical comfort.
thut tbey confine themselves, in their addresses,
reinonstances and appeals to the Cleveland Con
vention, or at least to the shady side of the Union
We would advise them, by all means, not to test the
sincerity of any of their miuiLtr, by prcprsirg to
send them into the South in negotiators for the
emancipation of our slaves, whether with the own
ers, ruhktive to the purposo ul liberating them, or
with the slaves themselves, in relation to the
means of effecting their freedom through the agen
cy of the underground railroad.
These intensely philanthropic persons, who have
determined upon endeavoring to devise wuys uric
means for tho extinction of slavery, which "shall
fully recognise the principles ni.d policy of a fair
and honorable compensation to the slaveholders,"
are asvuuiing an imnortanco as unwarranted, as
their undertaking is idlo, and their design suspi
cious. Presupposing that the Southern people ex
ercise ownership over their negroes as a matter ol
necessity, and regardless of every other considcra'
lion than that of pecuniary profit ; that slavery
even in the South, is esteemed an evil ; nnd that
ihose who, ns they think, are cursed with it,
would gladly do away with, it if it could be
compensated in dollars and cents, for the loss im
mediately incured by abolishment. .Mr. Jlihu llur
ritt and bis conciencious co i Ijutors propose, for
sooth, a National (!) Emancipation Convention, for
the adoption of a plan by which nil tlio slaves in
the South may be bought up and mivlo free. They
might as well at the samo timo commence a con
tribution for the purchase of ull the cotton una su
gar plantations in the South, together with Cuba,
Central America and Mexico, nnd, indeed, of every
portion of the habitable globe which invites
Anglo-Saxon enterprise, and is peculiarly adapted
to negro labor. Yt e woui t nlso advise thciu to
extend still farther their field of philanthropy, and
raise money enough to furnish to every inhabitant
of Africa the means not ( lily of living, but living
luxuriously, without any exertion cither of their
mental or physical faculties.

here I could not have even this.
But when I woke up in the morning the whole

SALEM, Sept. 15th, 1757.
To rnE Editor; Your recent annivcr.-sry at
Aliianre, was so cheering in its whole character
and results, that wo may well lake heart for the
Autumn campaign. Two or three thousand earn
est, devoted men und women, assembled en a
Sunday, jto devise measures and means for the lib
eration of the captive, certainly present a specta
cle to which tyrants and oppressors will do well
to lake heed. Perhaps but a small part of that
vast gathering, are ready for Revolutionary Deeds,
though most of the Dion certainly seemed inter
ested in, and impressed by the mott treasonablo
sentiments promulgated. And tho women too
as why should they not ?
Such meetings are the academies where we are
training the people and ourselvts, for whatever
encounter the dire ncccessities of our cause may
force upon ns. Words, spoken or written, are well
only if they be earnest, manly words. But after
all, they may be only the paper currency o which
bullets are the specie redemption. It will be well to
prepare for, or at leasi to talk about the worst.
Free children aro kidnapped on the banks of the
Ohio, ai d dragged off into slavery. Slave Win
ters pursue their prey also, up into tho Northern
States. Ballots surely are no protection or pre
vention here. We cannot wait for election days
to come round, and run the chances of defeat in
our candidate ; or if successful, wait tho slow ac
tion ot legal process. Alt that may bWii to
Reform ; and will answer on tho common ques
tions nrising in civil government. it tit our
movement is a Revolution, not a Reform, and de
mands Revolutionary action. The slave hunter
should not be tjlerated in the streets of Ohio, no
matter who is governor, or wbat is law. Much
less should thuse human hyenas, those demons
that have broke jail from perdition, and go prowl
ing around the humble cabins of the froe colored
people, stealing their children lika lambs from the
fold, and bearing them in their unpitying fangs
down to the dons of the second doath.
In the autumn of 1854, there were four cases
of free colored people thus seized at midnight,
nnd dragged off to bo sold into slavery, in only
six weeks. What political party, or what law
can guarantee against such atrocity ns this?
There must be moro speedy, more summary ac
tion than was ever contemplated by Law, or the
Makers of Law.
And such instances are doubtless of constant
occurrence. Many slaves eecape to Canada. The
slave-holders are making reprisals on the free color
ed people, to indemnify them for their loss. The
slave holders are deliberately plotting to renew
the African Slave Trade, under pretence of im
porting free emigrants from Africa, as the Capital
ists import free laborers from Britain and Genua
n 7, to work the mills and mines of the Now Eng
land and Middle Slates. And when the poor Afri
cans were once on the soil of a Slave State, and
subject only to etato LaWs there, what would be
their condition t AVhat would it have been, even
without tbo Drcd Scott Decision? We all know
alas, too well 1
Now the men who would contrive, defend, and
seek to enact that system of plunder in Guinea
nnd Congo, would not heeitato to steal every color
ed person in America for the slave Markets yea,
acd every white laborer loo, were it possible 1
And this land piracy is going on continually.
there can be no question ot it. tvery year re
veals the instances ; and some of them of most ter
rible description. And no doubt many of the
worst cases are unfold and unknown.
And then the slave hunters and slave catchers
are no better. Why wait the slow process of law,
when the law almost invariably favors the kidnap
pare, and by its very existence, sanctities the kid
napping ? Why should euch scourges be suffered
to ravage and destroy ? Better far tint these
western states return back to the dosolation from
which they have been so gloriously redeemed, aud
become wild wuods aid wilderness again for
beasts of prry that with the red lavages, held un.
disputed possession, as the ages moved on! What
shall we do with these worse than roaring lions
who go about recking whom they may destroy
and devour I Who will say our streets should not
rather run with blood, than be polluted by their
tread? W ho of us would not arrest the wretch
that should lay his hand, (rather his paw,) on a
wife or child of ours as a slave, and send him
with all his guilt upon him, where telegraphs will
never be attempted ? What could we do bettor?
And why should we do less for others than we
would do for ourselves, or than we would bavo
others do for us? If there be a more excellent
way, for the love of humanity let it be shown ;
fur we cannot, will not be thus curse 1, to help us
Some will say this is Treason, Rebellion, in the
highest degree. Of course il is; but what of that?
So was every deo'uive step in the American Rev
olutioD, from the Tea Table scyne in Boston bar-
bor tn the t attles of Lexington and Bunker bill ;
and the surrender of Lord C irnwallis and the ac
knowledgement ol American IndepemUnce.
And what was our meeting at Alliance for, or
for what nre any of our gatherings, if they be
not tu Educate ourselves up to daring, to doing,
and to dying even, should the progress nnd success
of the cause of Liberty demand it. And who
dnroa say that it may not and that erelong ! Let
us cultivate the conscience, the courage, the char
aeter for any emergency i and show tho hosts of
slavery, that if battle nnd death aro forced upon
us. wocan face them both, for tho love of Frocdom
A WORD TO ABOLITIONISTS WHERE
MEETINGS ARE APPOINTED
Let the friends in every place where meetings
are notified, see tn it that they give the Speakers
their faithful and hearty co operation. Let them
see that the most ample notices are given of their
meetings; that the most comfortable and commo
dious places possible are securod in which tu hold
thorn ; let thein invite the attendance of their
neighbors, nnd second and strengthen tho im
pression made by the presentation of truth, and
we shall oxpeet to sco marked results, in spite of
the dissipating influence of political excitement
and the morally Btupifying and stultifying powor of
We will add, what must be obvious 'to nil, that
the expenses of this campaign will be necessarily
heavy. And those who have assumed the respon
sibility of meeting them, have a strong claim up
on the liberality of abolitionists generally and
especially upon those whose families and immedi
ate neighborhoods are benefitted by the meetings

grown weary and forsaken principle for expedien

there are many true and earnest workers, scattered
through the country, still resolved to defend tho

gave unmistakable evidence of their continued fidel

not without effect, impressing seme with new views
of the guilty complicity of cur government in its

But the apathy of our community to tho ques

of the audiences, especially when they bad within

The women turned out well, but the men stayed
away, conscious probably, of the wctikuessof their
political position and unwilling to meet the ex"

them at tbe meetings. Well probably they took n

American Board of Commissioners at its late an

successes that "The Bible is freely sold every

St. Sophia's mosque." 'flint is Christian propo.
gandism abroad. At home, many of the Churches
which send theee bibles to tbe Turks, give the
whole weight of their influence to sustain laws
which treat as crimes worthy of imprisonment
and death,' the sale or gift of a bible to any ono of

state, tbe Political Abolitionist, stands sternly by
tbo "stuff," nnd very earnestly urges all bcliovers
in the Doctrine of the Anti-slavery character of
the Constitution, to vote for thoir principles. Tho
friends of the party who sympathise with the Ab
olitionist recently held a meeting in Gurnsey
County, and put in nomiuation the following oan
dates for State officers.
For Governor Thomas B. MoCormick, of Lor

Among the Resolutions adopted at the Moeting
were the following very justly condemning the
pro-slavery position of the Republican party and
its candidate Gov. Chase.
Resolved, 1st. That S. P. Chase, the acting Gov
ernor of Ohio, justly merits tho frowns and indig
nation of an enlightend, generous but injured pen-
pip, nnd particularly uf the colored citizens of
Ohio, in his crouching servility to the Slave power
in suffering the sovereignty of the states nnd the
Kitihts and dignity of the citizens to be trampled
upon by Federal officers, to carry into effect the
nefarious Fugitive Slave Law, and in permitting
the noble hearted but frnntio Margaret Garner
who had violated the criminal laws of Ohio, by
cutting her own child's throat, to save it from a
fate worse than death, to bo arrested from tbe
custody of State law and out of the hands of State
officers nnd remanded back into tho bell of Amer

submit to a vote of the people of Ohio ihe ques

no rights that white men are bound to respect.

Dear Marius : I like designation. The place
where I now write, E. K. Smith's, twenty miles
south ot Iowa city, is kuown far around, as "The
Lone-tree Prarie ;" aud very appropriately, from
a single native of the furest, noble Cotton-wood-tree
which has been spared by the devour
ing element in its annual ravages. We can see
this prarie prodigidy from our wiudow. north ;
all else is beautifully undulating meadow up to
the young forest which fringes Iowa river at the
distance of five miles.
What a place this would be for those ycung people
w ho have small capital and large industry.
With sumo privations, and reasonable labor, three
years would find tbcm in homes as good as the
best ; but the murderous land-sharks have boen
here in person, or in that of their Jackal agents
so thut he who bnys must pay at least a three
hundred per cent bonus to a non-resident. I fuel
like having prickle of boat when I think of it.
.The system which tolerates such doings, ignoros
equality of Right, and denies human brother
I will turn to a plcasanter theme, our common
friend Joseph Smith nnd'I attended the Teacher's
convention held on the 11th and 1-th ot this
month, August, at Iowa city. Several counties
and towns in the state were well reprosented. in
respect to numbers, talent and earnestness. The
diffusion "of practical, usef ul education among nil
classes was urged as a necessity cf the age.
Many wise suggestions wero offered for maturing
well devised plans for giving the best instruction
w hich tho wisdom and means uf the time enn pro
curo. The discussions were sometimes made rath
er tedious by that class of speakers who insist up
on being beard "just one word," ."only one mo
ment," and thon talk fifteen minutes, as they think,
mgst emphatically to tbe "purpose. Would be
happy to know that this was peculiar to nssocia
tions of teachers. They publish, monthly, the
"Voice of Iowa," with which it might be profita
ble to exchange. Dr. J. L. Enos Cedar Rapids,
Iowa the Editor.
The Phonetio convention for the state followed
immediately after that of the Teacher's and though
the attendance was smaller it was not less spirit
ed. Its members showed that tbey are alive
the subject, and some of tbe reports were truly
encouraging. J. II. Sanders of Oskaluosa has ob
tained since April, 400 subscriptions for a sories
of school books printed in Phonotype at a cost
of S 5 pr eett. If the east does not roll up sleeves
and go to work in spelling refcrm, the "far west"
will be in advance. It was proposed to engage
busineev men to furnish fonts of type for priming
their cards, bills and advertisements. They
would doubtless be generous, for curiosity would
induce readers to inform themselves what new ar
tides had oome to Market with such odd names
and when tbey found that a lot of KOUZ were
well known animals, they would laugh a little, and
As already said, there was munh flippant argu
ment in favor of free schools and their equal ope
ration, nor was it forgotten to call attention to the
comparative, as well as the positive, advantages
we possess, in our situation as well as in the di
versity of our soil and climate. Professor Weiser
of Des Moines in particular, aft0r showing Lis re
search inta the mists and myths of the past, to
find who luvented hydraulics, and who kept tbe
first school, concluded with a rare specimen of
luuditory eloquence. It is not wonderful at all
that when he nnd othors praised our institution
claiming undisputed superiority for them, that I,
should bo tempted to ask if they included slavery;
and so when the convention adjourned I called ft
meeting, offered a resolution, seounded, spoke up
on it nnd culled for the yeas by the raised hand.
The purport of the rosolution wns whether in
their proposod plans for enlightening and elevat
ing our species the colored race was included ?
I mntle tho motion partly that my own sentiment
might be kuown and partly to know those of oth
ers, and have thom known among themselves.
A majority raised the hand instanter and I told
the rest I bclioved they would but they feared for
their popularity. My reason for believing they
were f lad I brought the subject up, was the cordi
al manner in which they came and grasped taj
LATEST FROM KANSAS.
We condense the following items from the Kan
sas Correspondence of the St. Louis Democrat t
Quindaro, Sept. 5, 1857. Mr. Bayley is not yet
dead. He is lying in a very precarious condition.
On Saturday Mr. Brockett, who stabbed Mr. Bay
Icy, returned to Lecompton and was arrested.
The propagandists swore that he should not be
tried, and that any man w ho dnred to tostify
against him should bo shot. 1 He was brought be
fore a justice ol ihe peace. The toscin was sound
ed, the bre-eaturs assembled. The free state
democrats also convened. The conservative pro
slavery men met too Shannon, Brindle, Eli
.Moore, und Stephens, of New York and deter
mined to act with their Lee state friends.
They tave notice to the fire-enters that if tha
triul was interfered with, they wuuld aid to put
down the insurgents. They all met at tbo jus
tice's oL'ice. A miiu was called on to testify. Pn
propagandists drew their revolvers. The other
party followed Buit. One of them handed a re
volver to the witness ; and, thus armed the pis
tol cocked he proceeded to eive bis evi.lnnea t
Isn't this a great country ? The iustica wns a.
man of weak nerves, and fainted. The trial was
postponed till Monday.
A local journal huvs that Rev. Mr. Stewart, ft
gentleman of intelligence and veracity, who has
been travelling through the border counties of
Missouri, and .just returned from a trin uf consid
erable length in thnt direction, says that he saw
and heard ovidences everywhere on his route, eon--elusive
to him that preparations were again mak
ing in Missouri to invade Kansas in Octi her, with,
the view of participating in our territorial elee-tio-is.
If they come over ngain, arrangement
have been made to accommodate them permanently.
A formidable military order has been organized
for that purpose. It is called the "Kansas volun
teers for the protection of the ballot-box." Gen.
Lane, of course, is the presiding genius. Hi
staff consists of Messrs. Whitman, Phillips, Con
way mid Redpath ; who each havo offices in Law
rence, and are daily engaged with him in perlecfr
ing tho organization. Filteen or twenty thousand
men will be enrolled before the election. Com
panies Inuo been organized and nre drilling in
overy county in the territory. During the peace,
tho party prepared fur war. Arms nnd amuni
tion were quietly introduced and a formidable
army can now be equipped. It is to be hoped thai
the services of the volunteers will never be need
ed. If tho mullifiers will stay at home, thoy will
not bo called out. But if the border banditti,
como over again they will be met by exasperated,
well equipped and organized enemies before they
can accomplish the nefarious object of their visit.

Grvtitude or a Colored Man. On lat Friday
evening, a colored man mado his appearance at
the house of the Good Will Engine Company,
and alter making himself known tu the members
presented them with a handsome silver g.iblet. it
ivppjars that when the Asylum for Colored Orphans
wus destroyed by a mob during the disgraceful
riots in IfoH, the members of tho Guod Will were
active in their efforts to save the property and pre
serve the lives of the inmates of the institution.
Among those who claimed and received tho pro
tection of tbe company, was a boy nine years of
age. This boy bus since prospered in the world.
and nineteen years after the event refered to, he
evinces his gratitude toward his benefaotors in the
manner described. There are many men whose
faces nre whiter than that of this grateful fellowr
who would give themselves but little trouble to
make a return fur kindness received,. Philadel
A Melan'cuolv Catalogue. One of the New
Orleans journals now luruishes a " List of Runa
ways, correctud weekly." It generally contain
the names of from ti It y to sixty slaves who have
been arrested at various poiuts. Alter the name
of most of 'hem are statements of the names of the
owners, ns told by the bondmen. Occasionally
there is a notice that the oaptive assert his free
dom. We are left to conjecture whether he ever
gets it, and that conjecture is unfavorable, as they
have a practice of sollijg nogrues "down South,"
whether really bond or free,"to pay jail fees."

Staupede of Slaves. On Saturday, a number
of slaves, belonging to various citizens of the dis
trict, obtained a covered wagon, under pretence of
going to camp-meeting in the adjoining County
they departed but have not returned, and their
owners have reason to believo that they have emi
grated by the Underground Railroad. Some fif
teen slaves are missing, most of them belonging in
this city and Cvunly. Amog the loser are Messrs
Linton, Randolph Harbuugh nnd Isaac Suaggs.
Officers have been in search of the fugitives, but up
