THE VOICE OP FREEDOM.
George Thompson, and a host of the same stamp,
are laboring to break the yoke of bondage there.
And must such men be vilified because they have
not succeeded in removing slavery from that land ?
Is it becoming to sneer at them because they call
upon republicans to ease the heavy burdens? If
the British Government will not abolish slavery
in the East India possessions, lut her stand, side
by side, with our polluted land, while the burn
ing 1 Tekel' shall be stamped on the face of each !
But, " wilt thou destroy the righteous with the
wicked ?" Let blame rest on those who deserve
it, both here and elsewhere. But in the name of
candor, I ask, do those deserve it in this case, who
are both night and day doing all they can in the
premises ? Or would you have them hold their
peace in reference to slavery here until it is abol
ished throughout the British possessions ? Then
should good men cease to plead the cause of Pa
gans, until all in Christendom ore made the free
men of Jesus Christ.
Hoping, that, before you attempt to instruct
Yankees again, you will inform yourself; and
praying that the time may soon come when the
crying sin of slnvery may be repented of and for
saken in this professedly christian land,

Your sincere friend,

Waterbury, May 29th.
The discussion on the Slavery, quefftion in the
New School General Assembly has resulted in
the adoption of the following resolution by a large
" Whereas, certain Memorials have been sent
up to this Assembly from several Presbyteries,
desiring some action on the subject of slavery,
and whereas these Memorials have been read and
freely discussed by this body ; and whereas, this
Assembly is made up of members, from different
portions of our extended country, who honestly
diner in opinion as well in regard to the propriety
as the nature of the ecclesiastical action, desirable
in the case; therefore, Resolved, that this assem
bly do most solemnly refer to the lower judicato
ries uie suojeci oi slavery, leaving mem to take
such order thereon as in their judgment will be
most judicious and adapted to remove the evil,"
Friend Whittier of the Pennsylvania Freeman,
has the following remarks :
Wfi regard this movement, in the Assembly as
An event of great importance. There has been a
free discussion of tho subject of slavery in all its
bearings ; slave-holdoi's, and alo'itionists,have met
each other in a temperate and free expression of
their views and teelings. 1 he resolution which
was finally adopted, although not all that some of
our friends could have wished, is tar in advance
of fill previous action, on the part of either branch
of the'ricStj ten'an C.'urch. Jt solemnly refers
the subject of slavery to the Synods, presby
teries, and six hundred churches, whoiii i' repre
sents, for such action as may be deemed best adap
ted to REMOVE THE EVIL. Our beloved
friends, Alvan Stewart, and John Rankin, have
been abundant in their efforts, and their evident
sinceerity, Christian boldness, and unswerving
integrity have won for them the respect and es
teem even of the southern delegates, who to their
honor be it said, seem to have little sympathy with
" dough-faces" in the State, or expediency and pol
icy men in the Church.
Lewis Taitan's Case. It is well known to
our anti-slavery readers generally that our friend
Lewis Tppan, has been suspended from the Pres
byterian church, by the Third Presbytery of New
York, in consequence of his alleged contumacy
in refusing to submit to an unorthorized and ty
rannical order of an ecclesiastical court, before
which he was summoned for having ventured to
speak the truth in relation to a recreant clergyman,
who after having made a profession of abolitionism
in the North, had "consented" with the slavehold
ers of N. Orleans. From the decision of the Pres
bytery friend Tappan appealed to the General As
sembly now sitting in this city, and after a full and
fair hearing his appeal was fully sustained. He
conducted his cause with great ability. Venn.
The Woman Question.
We commend the following, from the last Libe
rator, to the notice of the editor of the Chroniclo :
We agree with brother Leavitt in savinc, that
the vote of the National Society admitting women,
' being grounded on the phraseology of the Consti
tution, cannot be justly regarded as committing
the Society for or against any party on the gener
ai question ot vvomens Htgnts. un that ques
tion the Society ought not to be committed one
way or the other ; and notwithstanding our own
opinion is made up in favor of the rights of wo
men, in their broadest sense, we are prepared to
resist any and every attempt to commit the Socie
ty in their behalf, or to identify it with our views
in consequence of the late vote. The ground of
our ' triumDh' in view of the decision is this that
by admitting women, the Society has shown its dis
position honorably to abide by the spirit and terms
of its Constitution, when, to have made ' a contra
ry decision,' in the words of brother Leavitt, ' would
have been taking sideg on a question respecting
which it was bound to entire neutrality.' Wc al
so rejoice in view of the decision, because we be
lieve that the action of women in our meetings
instead of retarding, will greatly accclorato the
Liberty's Free Turnpike. When pro-slavery
filial! taunt us again with ' not liberating a single
slave we will renlv. we have opened a broad high
way from the South to Canada, where they may
T-n toll free and scot-free. We have cut them an
" Avvian wau " all throuirh the non-slave, prola
very states, where they may now find friends thick
er than mile stones on a turnpike. Southern edit
ors, who ' would be glad to be rid of tho entailed
nuisances,' will please insert this notice every week
he year round, Formerly, Canada was the ref
uge of United Stales roguery. Now it has got so
respectable it need not run any where and if it
emigrates, it goes to Texas, while the lovers of
liberty run to Canada. Ihrald of Freedom.
We know not where is to bo found in the his
tory of man, so marked an example of the trans
forming and elevating power of the Gospel, as is
seen in the brief history of the Sandwich Islands
mission. Scarcely twenty years have elapsed since
the standard of the Cross was first raised amongst
that people by a handful of devoted missionaries
from the United States. The moral condition of
the people at the commencement of missionary
labors was wretched beyond the power of descrip
tion. without a written laneuase, devoted to
idolatry, they appeared wholly given up to the
most degrading vices; the pall of moral death hung
over the miserable inhabitants of the entire group,
The missionaries, however, addressed themselves
to their work with a zeal animated by faith in God.
They invented a language, remarkable for its sim
plicity and facility of acquisition, and soon called
to their aid the power 'of the press. As early as
the year 1S30, such was the demand for elemen
tary books and tracts, that GOO reams of paper
were used in the printing department. About
the same time a periodical newspaper was com
menced ; anu now, mere are two weekly news
papers printed in the Hawaiian language, the me-
hanicjl work being performed mainly by natives.
Our readers doubtless recollect the accounts
published some months since, of the signal revival
of religion at this mission. The missionary Her
ald for June, brings us still further and truly
cheering intelligence. Rev. Mr. Coax, in a let
ter dated Hawaii, Sept. 26, 1838, says
The great goodness of God to this people induces me to
write you at this time. Through the loving kindness and
tender mercy of our God ' the day spring from on high
hath visited us.' To us the present is ' the year of the
right hand of the Most High,' ' for he that is mighty hath
done for us great things, and holy is his name.'
On the 10th of March, 1 wrote vou a somewhat full ac
count of the work of God's Spirit among this people. Since
then, it has advanced without interruption, and with una
bated energy ; and now while I write, the waves of salva
tion roll deep and broad over this field. The Spirit of the
Highest breathes upon tho slain. They breathe they
live they stand up an army to praise the Lord. Every
day gives us fresh demonstrations that God has awaked to
our help, and that this is his work.
Since I last wrote you I have been almost constantly en
gaged in preaching, traveling among the people, and ex
am ing candidates for the church. 1 usually preach from
seven to twenty times a week, and the people are still ea
ger to hear. A large congregation can be collected here on
the shortest notice, and at almost any time of day or night.
Our congregation at the station has sometimes swelled to
five, six, and even to seven thousand. ' Who are these that
fly as a cloud and as doves to their windows ?' Christ rides
gloriously in the chariot of salvation. His arrows are in
the hearts of his enemies. There is a great quaking among
sinners through this field. During a recent tour through
Hilo and Puna, in which Mr. V. accompanied me, the
same general tokens of the divine presence were manifest
ed as I described on a former occasion. The gospel was
everywhere the power of God unlo salvation. It was
like the fire and the hammer. The most hardened sinners
were melted and broken under it. Many, who on a for
mer tour remained in their houses or hid themselves In
the jungle to avoid the light of truth, now came out of
their lurking places and submitted with tears to tho Lord
Jn my last I wrote you that on the first Sabbath in Jan-
uarv, !ooo, ii were receivea 10 this cnurcu ana mat ovz

first Sabbath iii "'j", 105 were baptized and received to
the communion and Jeilowship of til? Church. A Ins wasj
a great and solemn and glorious day, A scen never to be
forgotten. I was alone with my family at the station at,
that time, my beloved associates, Messrs. L. and W. hav
ing eone to Oahu. These 1,705 1 baptized in one afternoon,
and on the same occasion broke bread to about 2,400 com
municants. In selecting and examining that 1,705 candi
dates I spent much time and care, attended w ith many
prayers and tears. I met them all personally five or six
times, besides preaching to them often collectively.
During tours which 1 made in IIuo and f una in the
months of July and August, I baptized and received to the
fellowship of the church 452 individuals. These were
chiefly the aged, the sick, and the infirm, who had for a
considerable time given evidence of regeneration, but who
were too feeble to come to the station. For the consola
tion of these and other aged and sick disciples, I adminis
tered the Lord's supper at several different places through
which I passed. At our communion season on the first
Sabbath of the present month, (September,) 618 individ
uals were added to the church, making in all 3,381 souls
who have been received to this communion on profession
of faith in the Lord Jesus since the first of January, 1838.
The whole number now in communion with this church is
about 3,500. About four hundred of these are children
between five and fifteen years old.
I ive hundred candidates now stand propounded for our
next communion, and I am now spending about two days
every week in the selection and examination of hopeful
converts, of whom there are yet multitudes not brought in
to the church. Truly Zion here is made to enlarge the
place of her tent, and to spread forth her curtains.
Character or the Converts Chance wrought
I N THEM.
But you will ask , How do tho church and the young
converts wear ? Thus far they stand fast and appear re
markably well, and I have more hope of their final salva
tion, than I have of that of the same number of professors
in the American churches. It is true they are ignorant
and without refinement, but I believe that a larger propor
tion of them possess a simple and saving piety, than of any
other community of Christians with whom I am acquainted
in any other land. Manv of them pray, so far as I can
judge from appearances, as I have rarely, perhaps I should
say, as 1 have never heard Christians pray in my own land.
With tears, with soul-melting fervor, and with that earnest
importunity which takes no denial, they often plead the
promises and receive what appear to be the most direct and
unequivocal answers to their prayers. And the reason is
obvious. They take God at his word, and with a simple
childlike faith, unspoiled by tradition and vain philosophy,
by infidelity and refined skepticism, they go with boldness
to the throne of grace. Their confidence honors God, and
God honors them. How often I have blushed and felt like
hiding my face in the dust, when I have witnessed their
earnest wrestlings, and have seen how like princes they
have had power with God and have prevailed. Surely I
have often exclaimed surely ' God hath chosen the weak
things of this world to confound the things that are mighty ;
and base things, and things that are despised, yea and
things that are not hath God chosen, to bring to nought
things that are, that no flesh should glory in his prssence.'
The minds of most of these converts are dark and rude,
and the personal appearanco of many of them is repulsive.
So that to a proud and fashionable world, who look on the
outward appearance, they would be without comeliness; but
to Him who looks on the heart they may be ' beautiful as
Tirza.' Could you get a gliinpsa of the motley group as
they bend their steps to the house of God, or as they sit
around the table of their dying Lord, I am sure that the
sight of your eyes would affect, yes melt, your heart. The
old and decrepit, the lame, the blind, the maimed, the
withered, the paralytic, and those afflicted with diverse dis
eases and torments ; those with eyes, noses, lips, and limbs
consumed with tho fire of their own or their parents' for
mer lusts, with features distorted and figures the most de
formed and loathsome, these come hobbling upon their
staves, and led or borne by their friends, and sit down at
the table of the Lord. Among this throng you will see
the hoary priest of idolatry with hands but recently as it
were, washed from the blood of human victims, together
with the thief, the adulterer, the sodomite, the sorcerer, the
manslayer, the highway robber, th blood-stained murder
er, and the mother no ; the monster ! whose hands have
recked in the blood of their own children. All these meet
together before the cross of Christ, with their enmitv slain,
and themselves washed, and sanctified, and justified in the
name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
Bnch are some of the fruits of the gospel as seen among
this degraded people. Who would not wish to live and
die in a work like this ?
Comparatively few cases of discipline have as vet o&
curred in this church, and the greater part of those which
now exist, are for offences which would be overlooked or
tolerated in most churches in the United States. Of adul
terv thero have been four or five cases in this church of
,500 members scattered ovei a region of country one hun
dred miles in extent, and peculiarly exposed as they are
by the native manner of living. Most of those who have
fallen, now give evidence of penitence, and I cannot lay
that there is one open and decided apostate among them.
In short, the moral aspect of things here is all changed.
The Spirit of God has breathed upon this dark chaos of
mind, and a glorious renovation is the result. Order,
peace, honesty, purity and affection, now take the place of
confusion, contention, treachery, pollution and malice.
Long cherished divisions have been healed ; the bitter
fountains of rancor and revenge dried up ; and husbands
and wives, after a spiteful separation of five or ten years,
have, by the gospel, been re-united in tho bonds of alfec
tion and peace. In thousands of cottagos, where all was
once void and wild, the tear of penitence and gratitude
now fulls upon the domestic altar, and tho morning and
evening prayer go up as a sweet sacrifice to God through
Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant.
Our large meeting-house, capacious enough to seat about
five thousand, is now often found too strait for us, and the
people, of their own accord, have built a second house 115
by fifty feet, so that we may divide the congregation when
the largest house will not accommodate all who assemble
to hear the gospel.
In relation to all objects of benpvolence placed before
thoin, this people are more ready to assist, according to
their power, ' yea nnd beyond their power,' than anv peo
ple I ever saw.. They are poor to the letter, and a view of
their extreme poverty will make any feeling heart bleed ;
yet out of their ' deep poverty' they will give with sur
prising readiness. 'Not grudgingly they are ' cheerful
givers.' Often, however, their donations turn to little ac
count for want of a ready market, and thus their kind de
signs are frustrated.
My beloved associates, Mr. and Mrs. Lyman, are patient
ly and faithfully devoted to the boarding school under their
care, and their labors give promise of much good to this
people in training up a set of teachers to take the charge
of our numerous schools. Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox are doing
well in the station and common schools, but ss these valued
associates will represent their own particular departments
of labor, I shall not speak on that subject. My brethren
having relieved me from the care of schools, I now give
myself entirely to the work of the ministry, to preaching
the word, to pastoral duties ; and though my present and
increasing labors and responsibility are very great, yet the
Lord has hitherto sustained me, and I have been made ex
ceeding joyful in the solemn and overwhelming work now
committed to my charge. Let me beg that you will pray
for me, that God will grant me grace to 1 take heed to my
self and to all the flock over which tho Holy Ghost has
made me overseer, to feed the church of God which he hath
purchased with his own blood, taking the oversight thereof
with a ready mind ;' that I may feed and guide and rule
this flock in all wisdom, becoming myself an example to
them in meekness, in faith, in puritv. Oh for wisdom to
go in and out before this great people. Oh for grace to
shine as a light in the midst of a crooked and perverse na
tion, holding forth the word of life in such a manner that
I may rejoice in the day of the Lord Jesus, that I have not
run in vain nor labored in vain.
It is to us a peculiarly grateful reflection, that
the brethren whose labors have been so signally
blessed of Heaven, have for a long time been deep
ly interested in the cause of the American slaves.
The monthly concert of prayer for the enslaved is
regularly observed by them. In a letter dated as-
far back os Nov, 1837, Mr. Hitchcock of the Sand
wich Islands mission, held the following language
in a letter addressed to Amos A. Phelps, the for
mer Editor of the Emancipator :
" Though our fields of labor are at a great distance from
ench other, and are different in some respects J yet I feel
that our object is the same, that of breaking every bond
and of letting the captives go free. Be assured, sir, that
in the prosecution of this object you have my prayers and
best wishes for your success. No intelligence from my na
tive land interests me more than that which announces the
progress of the cause of the slave.
' 1 do not write this to encourage you. J. lie contest in
which you and your coadjutors are engaged, is not of so
doubtful a nature as makes it difficult to predict on which
side victory will eventually fall, and of course you require
not the stimulus of consolatory remarks to urge you on. '1
write because it is a privilege for mo, (as I think it should
be for every Christian,) to take an open and decided stand
in favor of those who are laboring to crush slavery. Es
pecially is this a privilege at a time when morbid prudence
or time-serving policv is setting about the sentiment that
it is a subject with which the missionary should not inter
meddle. I must confess that if the immediate abolition of
slavery is a subject in which Christians of every name, cir
cumstance or occupation ; whether public or private, indi
vidual or corporate, may not and should nil take an open,
undisguised, and active part ; then thero is no subject in
which they should do so. Of all tho abominations that
have cursed the earth, where is there one more flagrant than
that of enslaving and crushing to dust our fellow men ? Of
all the sins which Christians are called upon to oppose at
the present day, where is thero a more heinous one than
the one your Society are laboring to destroy The mere
fact that insisting upon the immediate abolition of slavery,
and that describing in Bible language the odiousness of traf
fic in human flesh will disoblige a class of interested per
sons, however great, is no proof that either sound prudence
or the religion of Christ, requires one to forbear. A neu
tral position in reference to the immediate destruction of
slavery can be justinedby the spirit of tho gospel no more
than this same position can be in reference to the destruc
tion of imtomporance, perjury or highway-robbery. And
there can be little doubt that were those sins as intimately
interwoven with the worldly interests and profits of so
large a portion of the country as is the existence of slave
ry, the same policy which now keeps so many aloof from
those who are laboring to put down the latter, would do
the samo in reference to those who should strive to put
down the former. Were the sin of holding slaves confin
ed to a few and those few of little or no wealth or influ
ence, the neutrality which now exists in reform -.e toils
immediate abolition, would probably be unknown. How
disconsonant to the benevolent, but uncompromising spirit
of the Bible ! " Open thy muuih for the dumb, in the
cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open
thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the causa of the
poor and needy," is a divinely inspired injunction, which
no human policy whatever can justify us in evading.
" I am happy to inform you of what I hope you may be
officially informed hereafter ; that this mission "(so far as I
know) TO A MAN ARE IN FAVOR OFTHE IMMEDI
ATE EMANCIPATION OF THE SLAVE, and that we of
course as a body are deeply interested in the success of the
object to which your paper is devoted. As we do not gel
the paper, or indeed any other exclusively devoted to the
interests of the anti-slavery society, you would do me a
favor, and perhaps promote the interests of the cause by
sending us a file. I think good use will be made of it."

youthful companions, and improved every opportunity of
exhorting them to prepare to die. He often lamented that
he had not in younger life, made a public profession of re
