Bev. Mr. McCree.
Brother Knapp, As I an. persuaded there arc
but few persons who heard this gentleman lecture
on Colonization, that know his real sentiments in
relation to the moral character of American Sla
veryiand as I have good reason to know that the
impression received by many Colonizationists who
heard him was, not only that lie 'awiorrea pio
slaveryism' but that he viewed . Slavery to be a
great moral evil a crying sin against God ; I
wish to lay before the readers of the Voick "hat
Ikr.ow-upon this subject, from the very best au
thority, hoping that it may fall under the oUser
ration of some Colonizationists, who would have
boon astounded and shocked to have heard Mr.
McCree declare in the course of one of his lec
tures in Montpelicr, that 5avery as it exists by
law in the U. S. is no' sin.
And here let me declare that I entertain no hos
tile feelings towards Mr. McCree, but that I speak
merely from i sense of duty, nor should I deem
it necessary to make this declaration, were it not
manifest to me that my friend, from some cause,
inclined to conceal his sentiments upon this sub
ject. At my first interview with Mr. McCree, (which
was occasioned by a conviction that some of my
Colonization friends misapprehended him, in some
or his remarks and positions in his first lecture in
our Village) one of the many questions I asked
him, (he having given me full license to do so, as
suring me it .would give him much pleasure to an
swer any and all I might be disposed to ask) was,
relative to the moral diameter of slavery ; to
which he unhesitatingly replied that it was not
sin, and quoted Scripture, both from the Old and
New Testaments to sustain that position. Ye
had much conversation upon this topic, and I re
ceived no other impression than that he consider
ed Slavery a Divine institution, and slated to va
rious persons, that such were his views. On
'meeting Mr. McCree during his second visit to
our Village, he expressed much regret that he had
been misapprehended, and consequently misrepre
sented upon this subject ; and after some conver
sation, we agreed to meet at his room and review
the matter, and endeavor perfectly to understand
each other. I therefore reduced to writing some
eight or ten interrogations, in such definite form
as would only require yea, or no, to give me a
correct knowledge of his views.
The first of these questions was, whether or not
he considered .slavery, as it exists in theU. S. by
law, tu be-sin ; and that I mig-ht be clearly under'
stood, I read to him the two following clauses of
slave laws, and asked him if this was the true
character of slavery in all the slave States; to
which he replied in the affirmative, viz:
A slave is one who is in the power of a mas
ter to whom he belongs. The master may sell
Mm, dispose of his person, Ms industry, and Ms
labor ; he can do nothing, possess nothing, nor ac
quire any thing, but what must belong to his mas
ter. Louisiana Code.
Slaves shall be deemed, taken, reputed and ad
judged in law to be chattels personal in the hands
of their owners and possessors, their executors,
administrators, and nssigns, to all intents, con
structions, and purposes whatsoever. Laics of S.
Carolina, Stroud, p. 22,23.
Here I was sorry to see my friend evince an un
willingness to give a definite answer, which for a
long time he entirely evaded, but as I could not
be satisfied with any thing short of a full yea or
no, he finally declared unequivocally that slavery
is not sin '.
And now, Brother Knapp, I shall leave it for
you or Brother McCree, or some oilier Brother
more accustomed to splitting hairs than I am to
shew in what, after all, the misapprehension, or
misrepresentation consists, in this affair. But that
an institution, so vast as is slavery holding, and
sealing the destiny of unnumbered millions of
creatures bearing the image of their Creator, must
have a very distinct moral character, is clear to
my mind, and if it be not sinful, I see not but it
must be holy, and as all holy institutions are of
Divine origin, what according to my Brother's
creed, is American Slavery but a Divine Institu
tion ? J-Seely, Agt. Vt. A. S. S.

" What has the North to do with .Slavery ?'
Answer. " Contend earnestly for the faith
which was once delivered to the Saints," until the
evil spirit of slavery is so cast out of the church,
that Cfffist may be preached in the house dedica
ted to His worship, even when it is known that
the flaims of the poor outcast, chattelized, pur
chase of his blood are to be presented.
On Sabbath, (12th ultimo) I preached in Bar
re; In tho morning, I addressed a note to Rev,
Mr. Aspimvall and the trustees of the M. E. C.
requesting permission to preach in their Chapel at
5 o'clocki P.' M. (its location being more central
than the Congregational meeting house) stating
that the text would bo, Let this mind be in you
which was also in Christ Jesus," assuring them
that while the condition and claims of our colored
brethren in bonds would be . presented, nothing
would be advanced but in perfect harmony with
the spirit of the above Scripture. By a note re
turned to me by Bro Aspinwall, I was informed
.that tho majority of the trustees declined granting
the request. I was informed also by a brother
that one of the trustees most f '1? PPsed to
my preaching in this chape'' ,lad hunself bcen a
preacher of the Gosi?), a "lnem,)Cr of llie laf,t
General Assembly of -is State.
My appointment therefore, at 5 o'clock was at
the school house, which is large and was crowded
with an attentive audience. I would not be un
derstood to represent Rev. Mr. Aspinwall as op
posed to my preaching in the Chapel, which I was
informed was not the case, but I give the' facts
to the public in answer to the oft repeated inquiry,
1 what has the North to do with slavery V and I
hope that those ministers of Christ who recognize
themselves, by the nature of their office and the
authority of their Master, to be the constituted ad
vocates of the slave, will see no occasion to in
quire what they can, or ought to do, while the
spirit of slavery lives and reigns to such an alar
ming extent in the Churches of Christ at the north.

Philadelphia, May 17, 1S39.
Bhother Lkavitt, Ycsterdav, I attended the
oneninu: of the (old school) General Assembly, and
heard Mr. Phtmmcr's sermon. It was written out,
and read from the manuscript. Asa composition
it was chaste: the conceptio l was good; am', as
a whole, I think it was a superior production. He
recommended moderation a thing not often ob
served in acrimonious church broils, by the tri
umphant party. It seems strange to hear how
southern ministers tell of oppression; they speak
of the oppressor, as if ho was either a mere ab
straction, or the inhabitant ol every land but their
own, of wrong and injustice with as much sang
froid, as if they neither perpetrated it themselves
on the poor negroes, or were not the apologists ol
llioe who do.
This mnrninsf, at the General Assembly oflhe
New School, tho committee on overtures reported
the slavery question among others. No small
consternation is excited. On my way to the meet
ing I met one ot the JJ. D.s of this city, who had
just come from hearing the discussion on a motion
to postpone the subject to next Tuesday. He was
a great deal moved and went so far as to say,
that it the slavery question was to be acted on by
the New School, he, with his congregation would
at once cease their connection with it. When I
arrived at the meelimr the question had just been
taken to postpone till Tuesday when it is to be
hoped a great battle will be lought (lor the adver
saries are fierce and determined) and a great bat'
tie won by the friends of righteousness and free
Suprising efforts are being made to persuade
the anti-slavery members just to pass by the
question this year just to let the body become
organized, and put on an embodied character and
that, in due time, it will betaken up and disposed
of as tliey would have it; just to put oft" note,
that they arc in a crisis: Xiy this cry, 1 rear,
some of our friends have already been beguiled.
But others with whom 1 have conversed, 1 am
sure have not. They know that many of the
soundest parts of the Church are only waiting to
see what action the New School will take on the
subject of Slavery, to decide what course they will
take. They will make those who appear to be
more the friends of organization than of the cause
of righteousness, take their course either for the
North and liberty, or for the South and slavery.
Such men as Stewart and Rankin and Gale, and
others whom I might mention, will not be misled
by the cry, that this is not a proper time for intro-
lucing the subject into the Assembly, for decision.
They will not be frightened by the cry already
put forth by the leading southern members, in the
discussion to-day, that slavery must not be discus
The friends of the slave occupy a most responsi
ble station in this new body. Now is the time for
them to act with effect. At the very outset of the
organization it is best to settle all dissentious ques
tions, if they would hereafter live in harmony. It
would be far"better, in my judgment, for the New
School to be broken into fragments at once, and
be prgvented from organizing at ajl, than for slave
holders, for a moment, to find in it a covert from
the coming indignance of the Christian world. I
look with great interest to what may be done next
An 'Interlocutory' meeting on tho slavery ques
tion is to be held between this and Tuesday.
JAMES G. BIRNEY.
Philadelphia, May 21, 1837, P. M.
Dear Brother Leavitt, Being here to attend
to my Appeal to the N. S. General Assembly,
(which is assigned for consideration to-morrow, af
ter being reported by the Judicial Commilte, who
were unanimous in favor of taking up the appeal
for decisive action,) I will write a few lines res
pecting the discussion on the subject of slavery
in the Assembly this forenoon.
The subject came up on a motion to have the
several memorials on the subject of slavery read.
After considerable discussion--and rejection of
motions to postpone the subject it was resolved
that the memorials be read. . They were read in
an admirable manner by brother Cox and Alvan
Stewart, when the Assembly resolved to have an
interlocutory meeting, and exchange their minds
freely on the subject. Rev. Dr. Hill of Va. wish
ed to read some documents, he said, on the sub
ject j and leave being given he read several pas
sages of scripture, viz : 1 Cor. 7th ch. 20 See. ver
ses, Col. 4 ch. in part, Eph. 6 ch. in part, 2 Titus,
2 ch. 9 verse, Paul to Philemon.
In reading from Col. the doctor made a mistake
that excited a smile over the whole Assembly.
He began as follows: ' Masters, give unto your
servants that which is just and equal,' &c. "The
doctor perceiving a general smile said, ' I have
not begun exactly at the place I intended,' and
then began to read from the previous chapter, 'Ser
vants obey in all things your masters according to
the flesh,'&c. At another time also Dr. Hill oc
casioned a similar smile in tho Assembly. After
reading 14 verses in the Epistle to Philemon he
stopped, when some one called out ' Read the nc::t
VOICE OF FREEDOM .
verse. Ihe doctor roml it iUi ...;tt.n th
mind I would do nothing,' tee. Some one ex
c.a.med, ' read the two next.' The doc-tor read,
not now Qs a servant, but above a servant, a broth
er beloved, &c.'
Before the dincussioh look place, Rev. Mr. Wil
l.ston .led in prayer., Rev. Mr. Graves wished
that the whole subject should be left to the pres
byteries. Rev. Mr. wished a resolution could
be adopted of a general nature, fearing further ac
tion on the exciting subject would divide the As
sembly. Rev. John Rankin made a neat argu
mentative and admirable Teply to Dr. Hill. The
meeting ad journed to 3 o'clock, P. M., when the
subject will be further discussed.
A large number of persons of both sexes, atten
ded to hear the discussion, and it was pleasant to
see the deep interest taken in the subject by the
assembly. Jt is evident that their minds are full
of the subject, and it was acknowledged all
round, that some action must be taken upon it.

Revival in Jericho.
Jericho, 6lh Mav, 1839.
Brothor Murray : I would inform our friends, and the
friends of Zion, that we have enjoyed a very interesting
revival of religion in this place during the winter past.
In tho latter part of .November, Brother .Miller gave us a
cenrso of lectures on the sjcond coming of lhri!. ti-
tlinutrli tho Lectures were but parliallv attended, good nn
prcssions were made on tho minds of many. These Lec
tures were immediately followed by a series of religious
meetings, in which the llev. S. Kellogg, of Montpelicr,
performed the principal part of the labor. The meeting
was one of deep interest. The dillercnt religious ilcnnni
inations united and labored together in great harmony.
The divine blessing attended, and numbers were hopeful
ly converted to God.
The work of divine grace thus revived, did not cease
with the protracted meeting, but after lis close continued
(o spread. It spread intb every neighlioihood in town, in
some of which it was very powerful, and continued thro'
the winter and a part of the spring months, with unabatf d
interest. As the fruit of the revival, 1 have baptized iiltv
three who have united with tho Baptist church. Others
are expected soon. Betwoen forty and fifty have united
with the other denominations in town. A good state of re
ligious fooling continues, and I trust will continue, and
that the standard of piety will bo elevated. Surely the
Lord has done great things for us. filory to his name.

The Crops. The Harrisbiirrr Chronicle of
Wedensday states that, thus fur, the winter crops
have a most promising appearance it that neighbor
hood, many of the farmers being of opinion that the
grain fields ' never looked better.' Vegetables of all
kinds are also declared to be in a state of fine
forwardness ; and for the fruit, the blossoming
could not be finer. The editor of that paper says:
" We liave taken several rules into the country
within a week, and the appearance of the whole
country is delightful : the green luxuriant herb
age which covered the fields, the half grown foli
age of the fruit nud trees, together with their 1 full
bloom blossoms,' cast a most unspeakable beauty
and fraqrance around."
The Westminster Carroltonian of this mnruinrr
says: "The growing crops are excellent in
Fredrick countv. The wheat is vcrv good in Car
roll the rye in some places is not so good."
Crops in the West. A Cincinnati paper of
May 1st, says the crops never looked better, nnd
as to the fruits, the quantity was so great that the
trees would break down with their burdens before
the fruit was half ripe.

Though the outward mav promise so well.
And is it indeed a hard thing to die,

And yet who would choose to outlive every tie
That sweetens our pilgrimage here !
And were it not better to pass away now,
Ere Friendship's soft summer hulh down,
Than to be tho last leaf on the storm beaten bough,
To linger and wither alone .'
And should I toil on till my loe.Vs should bo gray,
And tune wrote his name on my brow,

And tli v form he before me as now !
