THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
Circular is, to call the attention of the pastors and
churches to this subject, and request them to con
tribute immediately, something fpr paying this
ueoi, wnicn we nave owen since wioperia.su
On the second Wednesday in June, the Board
will hold their semi-annual meeting in Rutland.
Will you, Brethren, wake up, and contribute ac
cording to your ability, and forward your moneys
to Willard Kimball, our Treasurer, before our
next meeting in June, that we may have the means
of paying this arrearage ? You will remember,
that we have no agent employed the present year
to collect funds ; hence the necessity of having
some individuals in the different churches, take
bold of the business, and do something promptly
and effectually. Our missionaries are in distress
for what is clue thcin. Will you relieve them ?
say that you will ; and they are relieved.
By order and in behalf of tne Doaru,

Secretary.
Brandon, April 29th, 1939.
Colonization in the West.
Notes of preparation have been for some time
sounded in reference to a Convention of the Col-
onizationists of Western Pennsylvania and the ad
joining parts of Ohio and Virginia. It assembled
on the 9th inst. at Pittsburgh. Thirty delegates,
all told, thirteen of whom were from the city it
self, were in attendance. Judge Brackenndge
read a book (which he has spent the past winter
in preparing) to the convention, of which our
friend Burleigh, of the Witness, who has a fine
perception of the ludicrous, gives an amusing ac-
count. He thus describes the second evening1 of
the reading. Fenn. Freeman.
" The evening came starry and balmy as even
ing need be and with it came twenty-four men,
one boy, and six women, to hear the Judge read
another portion of his book : about one-third of
the whole number present were abolitionists.
We entered the spacious church a few minutes
before eight o'clock, expecting that the exercises
of the meeting would be in full blast. We were
disappointed. Scattered over the church were
some two dozen individuals, looking more as if
they had come to bury colonization, than to lis
ten to its eulogy, or to hear eloquent stories of its
power and vitality. It was a melancholy scene
very. In a pew near the pulpit sat the orator, or
rather the reader, of the evening, and by his side,
in solemn silence, his Excellency Governor Pin
ney. Forlorner specimens of humanity we nev
er expect to behold. In the enclosed space front
ing the pulpit, sat the excellent chairman of the
meeting, his fine forehead buried beneath his
hand, apparently in deep cogitation as to the best
means of getting out of the scrape in which he
found himself involved. Occasionally some colo
nizer from without would steal timidly to the door,
open it by stealth, cast a hurried glance over the
room, as if counting the noses of those present,
then quietly slink away, leaving the patient com
pany within to wait in silence as before. This
was certainly a very interesting state of affairs, but
it could'nt always last. Eight o'clock was just at
hand. The propriety of commencing the exer
cises of the evening was suggested, and an effort
made to bring the' scattered congregation into
something of a focus, that the Judge might have
some assurance that he was not reading exclusive
ly to empty benches. An invitation was given to
those who sat in the back part of the house to
come near the pulpit, the chairman very facetious
ly remarking that there was " plenty of room for
ward ! lint two individuals heeded the request.
J ne Judge began. Une by one an audience con
tinued to drop, in, and one by one the wearied
and impatient dropped out. When we left, at for
ty minutes past eight, the Judge was wandering
in Africa, over the track that a Denham and
Clapperton had trod before him, finding what
they had found, and describing what they had dc
scribed, with a faithfulness and accuracy that must
have been gratifying to the admirers of these dis
tinguished travelers. 1 here was what Samive
Veller would have called " a wery remarkable co
incidence" of view between them and the Judge.
To a person however who has not read all these
things a hundred time3 before, the Judge's book
must have been interesting an instructive."
Colonization. In corroboration of the views re
cently presented in the Gazette, respecting Colon
zation, we offer some extracts from the Society's
own publications. The African Repository of
March last is before me. It contains an account
of organizing a society in Alabama in December
last. By way of preamble, there is a recitation of
reasons urging to sustain colonization. The fol
lowing suggestions are mainly relied on :
" Because it proposes to remove from among
us a degraded, useless, and vicious race.
" Because we consider the measure, of all others,
best calculated to preserve good order and proper
discipline among our slaves."
" Therefore, we deem the plan of removing
them from the United states the most effectual
method of counteracting the abolitionists. It is
known that they are the most violent opponents
which the colonization scheme has to encounter.
Their penetration has discovered its tendency, and
they denounce it as a scheme originating among
slave-holders for the perpetuation of slavery.
Thus reasoned the slave-holders of Baldwin
county, Alabama, December 3d, 183S. They re
garded colonization as essential and etlectually
the opponent of abolitionism. For that reason,
and for the reason that colonization was a handi
craft of slavery, they resolved to sustain it. Its
' tendency" to sustain slavery is freely admitted, as
is also the lact that this " tendency1 has been
"penetrated" by abolitionists.
How remarkably, time and object, do these avow
als correspond with the views of colonization re
cently expressed in the Cincinnati Gazette ! The
war upon abolitionists, and the reason why, are
uisiiiicuy avoweu. " I heir penetration has dis

contribution levied upon it, for colonization, in his
pocket, it was contributed by those whose pene
tration could or would not compass their " tenden
cy." Many mechanics, who built churches for the
contributors, suffer for their pay.' There is no
charity in Cincinnatians paying an honest debt,
equal to colonizing the free negroes of Virginia !
Ci?icinnati Gazette.
Revelations of the Prison House.
We have long been of the opinion, that the time
would come, when the secret doings of Slavery
would be exposed to view that this huge abom
ination woulcj afford to a Republican literature,
some of the most instructive and exciting subjects.
In England, the work of exposure has now begun.
The British Emancipator, for Feb. 6, advertises
the publication of a work by a retired overseer,
entitled "Jamaica Plantership ; by Benja. M'Ma
hon, 18 years employed in the planting line in that
island." He is represented as an unlettered Irish
man, but his work bears every mark of veracity.
The details he has given are horrid beyond the
conception of any one who has not been initiated
into the mysteries of Slavery, and so graphically
described, as to carry conviction that they have
been seen. The work gives names, places, and
dates, so as to allow of easy refutation, if false.
And the author gives this further evidence of truth,
that he is seeking to return ta the island, showing
that he does not fear to meet his own stories in the
very presence of the parties concerned. We have
no doubt these revelations are still necessary, oven
with regard to the British Colonics, and they are
still more important to this country. There must
be hundreds of men now in the free states, who
have been employed as clerks, mechanics, over
seers, &c, in the midst of slavery, who would
electrify this nation and destroy the monster by
simply telling what they know. Mass. Aboli.
TlIEltt SPEECH BETIiAYETII THEM. A zealoU
colonizationist, lately, in conversation with an ab
olitionist, said, " 1 am anti-slavery, as welas you
slavery is an abominable thing, and 1 wish w
were rid of it. Twenty years ago, I did so and so
on the subject, cut," continued he, "you abol
tionists drive too fast you should not oppose the

Rev. E. P. Lovejoy. At the first annual meet
ing of the Illinois Anti-Slavery Society, the fol
lowing resolutions in relation to this true-hearted
martyr of freedom, were unanimously adopted
and are published along with the other proceeding
of the Society, in a late number of the Genius of
Universal Emancipation. We think the sugges-
tion of the last one should be speedily carried into
effect. It would be a solemn gratification to the
mends of freedom to contribute of their means in
the prosecution of such an enterprise.
Christian Witness.
Resolved, That we deeply deplore the loss whic
the friends of immediate emancipation have sus
tained in the death of the Rev. E. P. Lovejoy
the first Secretary ol the Illinois State Anti-Sla-
very Society, the intrepid defender of the great
principles ol universal lreedom, and the first mar
tyr to freedom of the press, in the fierce contes1
with American Slavery.
Resolved, That while we lament his death, w
admire the ability with which he defended th
grand doctrines set forth in our declaration of inde
pendence ; the firmness, with which he met the
storm raised by the enemies of the freedom of the
press ; and the unwavering devotion wit
which he fell and bled on the altar of our
common liberties : and that we regard with
feelings of unmingled indignation and horror, that
corrupt public sentiment which suffered the perpe
tration of an act that robbed the church of so devo-
ted a minister, and the nation of one of her noblest
sons.
Resolved, That it is due to the memory of E
P. Lovejoy, that a suitable monument be erected
over his grave, by the friends of the cause to which
he feu a martyr.
An Old Apprentice.
The following is the touching petition of an ol
apprentice in Trinidad, to the Governor of that col
ony. We extract it from the work of Captain
Hodgson ' 1 ruths irom the West Indies.
" To the Right Hon. Sir G. Hill, Bart., Colonel
of the Londonderry Militia, Lieutenant Got"'
ernor, q-c. Jrc.
. " The petition of Slamank, otherwise Adam
aged eighty-five years, a Mahornedan priest of th
Mandinoo nation, most humbly showeth :
"That he was thirty-five years of age when h
was sold into slavery: and notwithstanding his
sacred profession, has been forced to labor in the
fields, and undergo the sufferings and degradation
ol slavery tor filty years.
; That all his family have been separated from
him in his old age, his children from time to time
having been sold ; and that he now remains alone
(i the Maru estate without family or friends.
"That on the 1st of August, 1S34, the petition
er. then eirhtv-four vears o il. was to d that th
king had made him free, but that he must still be
an apprentice to learn the same trade of digging
cane holes, which he had been practising for fifty
years.
" The petitioner, whose blood had warmed a
the prospect of enjoying freedom, even for the last
few days of his wretched existence, must now
abandon all hope of living to see the day of h
redemption.
" He implores your Excellency to allow him to
go free. He was born Iree, and wishes to die free
He renounces all claim to remuneration for fifty
years servitude. The Mandingo church in Port
of Spain will support him. Extend your protec-
ting arm, 0, your Excellency! and the petitioner
dec, "

This splendid orator and celebrated philanthro
pist is at present in feeble health, on account of his
extraordinary exertions m the cause of humanity.
Since his return from this country, no man in
Europe has been so popular as an advocate in the
cause ot emancipation, or whose eloquence has
been employed so olten or with so much success.
Wherever he has been called to address the peo
ple, an immense concourse has crowded around
him, sometimes embracing 12 or 15 members of
Parliament. Lord Brougham has comnlimented
him in the highest strain. Being now prevented
by ill health from his arduous public labors, a sub
scription for his benefit has recently been put in
circulation, which had already amounted, in the
early stage of it, to nearly $5,000. This is the
man who was branded in this country bj the ser
vne presses, as " a iugmve irom justice. now
strangely does the treatment he receives in his na
tive land contrast with that which he received in
this country, where his life was sought by mobs !
How mean and contemptible do his persecutors ap

" Top good to keev." A number of gentlemen
anc members of Congress were sitting at table in
one of the boarding houses of the District of Co
lumbia, recently, discussing noints of ecclesiasti
cal history. One gentleman asked another who
was the father of Enoch? Tho old ladv who
kept the boarding house, hearing but part of the
story, and, being somewhat deaf, supposed that she
was asked who was the father of the sprightly !
mulatto boy, (a slave) of some 16 years of age,
who was waiting upon the table and whose name
was Enoch, and replied, "Gov. M-r , of Ala
bama. !" A burst of laughter was the consequence
of this unexpected answer. This is told us for a
fact by a gentleman who saw and heard the whole
of it. We would give names if at liberty. Gov
ernor's sons undoubtedly make good slaves, and
of course there can be no objection to this mode of
purpetuating the slave system ; but, Oh! the horror
of permitting free laboring persons of the North to
come within gunshot of free colored people. Amal
gamation ! horror of horrors ! if the slaves were
set free, all would be amalgamation ! -Spectator.
Spirit of Ohio Abolition ists. Our Western
friends are rousing themselves, The passage of
the infamous " Black Law in relation to fugitive
slaves, has awakened a determined and heroic
spirit among the friends of the colored man. The
last Philanthropist contains the proceedings of sev
eral anti-slavery societies, the members of which
have solemnly rosolveu to regard as Null and void,
tho law forbidding them to aid the fugitive escap
ing from slavery, and to bare their bosoms to the
penalty of refusing to obey its unrighteous in
junctions. Fenn. Freeman.
Methodists. The Rev. Orange Scott, in a re
cent communication to the " Massachusetts Aboli
tionist," states that about three-fourths of all the
Methodists, including both ministers and mem
bers, in the New England states are Abolitionists,
The fact is no less honorable to New England
Methodism than it is gratifying to the friends of
the anti-slavery enterprise. Ui. Witness.

In the House of Commons, March 27th, in re
ply to a question from Sir Stratford Canning, who
had a motion on the paper for the production of
Mitchell's map of the disputed territory, Lord Pal-
merston replied that he had yesterday received
despatch from Mr. Fox, stating that a plenipoten
tiary was about to be sent by the American gov
ernment to England, to open a negociation with
the view of settling the boundary question ; that
he could not say whether sir John Harvey had
acquiesced in snch appointment, and that he could
not at present lay any papers before parliament re
specting these transactions. He would, however,
state, that there was no reason to expect that the
friendly communication betuem this country and
America would be interrupted.
House of Lords, March 26. Lord Brougham
said he sincerely hoped the powerful necessity of
a war with America would be avoided. He would
not counsel the government, nor would their lord
ships sanction any course contrary to the public
honor; but, on the other hand, no apprehension
need be entertained in consequence of the high
warlike reputation which we had acquired all over
the world, by the valor of .our heroes both by sea
and land ; no apprehension need be entertained
that it would be derogatory to our honor to concede
as much as possible lor the maintainance ol the in
estimable blessings of peace. This wa3 the prin
ciple upon which the government ought to act in
every case, and above all in respect to the unhap
py differences between this country and America
There was one consolation on this subject, which
was, that ice were undeniably, clearly, and mani
feslly in the wrong ; and giving up token we were
in the lorong, never could harm us.
From the independent position which Lord
Brougham now holds, being unconnected with ei
ther Whigs or tones, his expression ot opinion
upon this subject is likely to carry some weight
with it.
The Times, too, the leading British journal
seems by no means confident that we have not the
right upon our side. The following extract will
reward perusal, especially on the part of those
who were apprehensive lest the " War Bill," as it
was called, should plunge us at once into a war.
Its operation seems to have been to make the Eng
lish more anxious for a settlement.
From the London Times, March 27.
The intelligence from North America becomes
more serious with every passing day. Yesterday
morning we received a mass of papers and letters
from New York, to the 6th inst. inclusive, brought
by the ship' Scotland ; and not many hours after
wards, by the steamer Liverpool, accounts reached
town to the 10th inst., which are of the same com
plexion with the former ones that is to say, th
reverse of satisfactory or pacific.
We do not indeed find just cause to complai
of any thing peculiarly acrimonious, or virulen
or offensive toward Great Britain, in thelanguag
employed by the American Government, or by
members of Lo.nqresss, or by the leading portion
of the republican press. There is a tone of decen
cy and gravity in their proceedings which bespeal
no rancor, and conveys no sort ol insult, and ex
presses no willingness, but, on the contrary, re
pugnance to a national war with England. So far
there is nothing that an Englishman could wish
to see altered in the demeanor adopted by the Un
ted States, nor anything unworthy of a race
freemen, who earned their liberties on the field o
battle, contending against a mistaken sense of right
and a short sighted calculation of policy, on the
part of her kindred antagonists.
But, there, unfortunately, all feeling of satisfac
tion with our Republican brethren must cease. If
their words be measured, so are not. their actions,
The votes of Congress, the executive proceedings
of the cabinet, the nature and extent of the warlike
armaments authorized by Congress, undertaken
by the Executive, eagerly clamored for and ne
epted by tho people, denote that when the period
of real exertion shall arrive, the Americans wil
not waste their breath in angry vituperation only
The general government, while it condemns ol
irregular, precipitate, and unauthorized measures
by the state of Maine in furtherance of her own
pretensions to the disputed territory, is by no means
I .- . r l , . 1 If i i,.
less pertinacious or confident man Maine nerseii
as to the full validity of such pretensions., and the
absolute and indefeasible right of Maine to enforce
them. A new point of controversy has been rais-
d by tho Republicans, and on it seems to turn for
the present the direct question ot peace or war.
. The understanding in this country, no less than
throughout the British provinces of North Ameri
can, has invariably been, that England having had
possession of the disputed territory since before the
peace of 1783, and never having parted with that
possession, the prima facie right to retain such
possession was in her, until overturned by the re
cognised result of negotiations, set on foot to de-
termine amicably who should be the legitimate
owner of the territory under the treaties of 16S3
and .1815.
Outrages having been recently committed by
those whom the British Governor presumed to be
common wrong doers and outlaws, he exercised
his habitual, and, we must beg leave to say, n is
unquestionable right of vindicating public justice.
The State of Maine and its Governor (Fairfiejd)
impugn this right alleged by Sir John Harvey.
They set up an adverse claim, not merely to a joint,
but an exclusive, jurisdiction. They allot $S00,-
000 in money to provide the means of enforcing
it, and they embody 10.0UU militia to attack Sir
John Harvey and a handful of British troops at
his disposal,
What, then, is the conduct of the central gov-
ernment at Washington with relerence to this
immediate controversy ? Whv. it adonts the view
of the rights of jurisdiction asserted by the State
of Maine, and declares that if sir John Harve
shall persist in the construction which he has a
ready affixed to the duties and obligations imposed
upon him by the British Government, it will find
itself called upon to furnish succors to Maine, as
in the case of any other State engaged in just
war with a foreign enemy.

Latest from Mexico. We are indebted to a
merchant of this city for the following interesting
paticulars of Mexican news, brought by the United
states brig Consort, from Vera Cruz.
On the 6th of April, a fire broke out in the Cus
tom House at Vera Cruz, which was consumed,
with more than 1000 packages of valuable goods;
also other houses adjacent.
It appears that the r rench sriuadron had not
sailed, as it was by the aid of the French sailors
and engines that the fire at Vera Cruz was finally
conquered.
General Mejia was, on the 7th of April, within
lo miles ot Vera Uruz, at the head ot from one
thousand to fifteen hundred men. It is believed
Vera CruZ that the Mexican garrison would join
him, and that the city would soon be in his pos
session. Another account says that the greatest conster
nation prevails at Vera Cruz among the inhabit
ants and merchants, who feared that the town
would be put under contribution.
The Consort brings $111,023 in specie to con
signees in New Orleans, and $120,000 for New
York merchants.

Brilliant Meteor. On Saturday night last, be
tween 10 and 11 o'clock, while walking along
East Bay street, our attention was arrested by an
extraordinary flash of light as brilliant and intense as
the most vivid lightning, castingabroad but moment

much startled and dazzled to detect the cause of
the brilliant phenomenon, but on turning round wc
saw a luminous streak of serpentine form, athwart
the North Eastern part ol the heavens, some thir
ty feet in length, and five or six inches in width,
fading from the viw, and changing from a bright
flame-like color to a dull yellow, and assuming
the form of a crescent before its entire disappear
ance. Not facing the proper direction, we did not
see the Meteor as it shot through the firmament,
but from its -volume of light it must have been ol
immense size. The streak of light was visible for
at least a minute.
