THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
Gcrrit Smith's Letter.
We trust that not one of our readers will be de
terred from a perusal of the able letter on our first
page, on account of its length. The subject of it
has hitherto attracted but slight attention from the
mass of American Christians, but is not, on that
account, the less important. The letter appeared
in several of the religious papers about a year
since. The New York Observer, if we mistake
not, published it without comment. Indeed, we do
not recollect to have seen any unfriendly criticism
upon the letter from any quarter.

Mr. Knapp :
Dear Sir, In the debates of the National
Convention, the question may come up, How
should churches, that believe slavery is sinful,
treat men and churches that uphold slavery ? and
I do hope that they will pass decidedly on this
question. For if slavery is sinful, it must be a
sin most abhorrent to God and man. And those
must be condemned out of their own mouths, who
hold Christian fellowship with men who uphold a
system of iniquity. They become partakers in
other men's sins justify the wicked, and strength
en the hands of the ungodly. And shall such
conduct bo tolerated in the churcll of God ? In
fidels may well sneer at such inconsistency, and
question the honesty of those who urge them to
renounce their infidelity, and at the same lime
hold in Christian fellowship men who uphold the
system of American slavery.
I suppose we should rebuke our Southern breth
ren deal with them kindly, but faithfully and
it iney win not repent, nut persist in their sin,
then withdraw, and have no fellowship with them
" Come out of her my people, that ye partake not
of her plagues."
How would it do to call at some future time a
convention, to be composed of delegates from
churches of all denominations, that refuse fellow
ship with slavery, to consult, and combine their
efforts to drive the monster from the church, or at
least, to separate the precious from the vile ?

International Law. During the past winter the
right of the Governor of any state to demand from, or to
deliver up to foreign governments fugitives from justice,
became a subject of frequent diocussion. Tiio opinions
eliciie-1 in the course of the argument were various and
conflicting. By some it was contended that this rijlit
must of necessity belong to the Chief Magistrate of the
Stale from which the felon had fled, or within which he
had nought to screen himself from the pursuit of justice.
Ii wns argued by others that as the Geneial Government
was the sole organ of communication with foreign powers
known to our laws, that Government could only make or
receive requisitions for fugitives from justice. While a
third party insisted that as this was a matter for treaty
stipulations, and as there were none in force between this
country and Great Britain, this right, as between these two
Countries, was vested nowhere. Our own belief, hereto
fore expressed, was that, treaty or no treaty, our existence
as a nation implied the existence of this right somewhere;
and that from the very nature of ourovernment, it must
bo vested not in the Executives of ths several States, but
in the President of the United States. It is well known
that a requisition was made, some months since, by Sir
George Arthur upon the Govornor of Vermont, for the de
livery of an individual who had committed murder within
the Canadian Provinces, and had thence fled to Vermont.
Gov. Jenison having first referred the matter to the Gov
ernment, and received for answer that, in the absence of
any positive regulations, cither by treaty or act of Con
gress on this particular subject, the President declined in
interfering, acceded to the demand of Sir George Arthur
and issued a warrant for the delivery of the fugitive to the
Canadian authorities. At this stage of the business, how
ever, a writ of Habeas Corpus arrested farther proceeding
until the authority of the Executive to deliver up a fugi
tive to n foreign Government could be settled in a court of
law. The final issue of this matter is not yet known. An
application has since been made to Gov. Seward for a re
quisition upon bir Ueorge Arthur lor the tlolivcry ot Hugh
Tracy, who committed a robbery in the city of liullalo, in
May last, and immediately thereafter fled to Toronto with
the stolen property in his possession. To this application
Gov. Seward returned an answer, a copy of which (as the
subject is one of general interest) we have solicted and
now submit to our readers.
Albany, May 20th, 1839.
IIknry W. Rogers, Esq., District Attorney of Erie
Dean. Sir. I have received your communication of
the 16th instant, requesting me to make requisition upon
his Excellency Sir George Arthur, Lieutenant Governor
of the Province of Upper Canada, for the delivery of Hugh
Tracy, to thj end that he may be brought to this state to
be tried for s felony committed within this state.
The law of nations rec.0gni7.es the mutual rights of states
to demand the surrender of fugitives from justice. The
regulation of these, however, is a proper subject for trea
ties, and the refusal of a state to comply with such a re
quisition in a reasonable case is a just cause of war. The
.right to demand and the obligation to surrender aie recip
rocal. I am satisfied that the authority necessary to the
xercise of that right, rests with the General Government,
nd not with the Governments of the states. The Consti
lutio devolves upon the General Government the care of
foreign relations. That Government has the sole power
to make treaties with fereign states, and the right to de
clare war and conclude peace. It thus possesses the pow
er to establish regulations for the exorciso of this import
ant right, snd to eubree compliance with its requisitions
when unreasonably refused by other slates, while the
state Governments have im power to establish general reg
ulations and means to enforce their requisitions.
Application was made to rue in a eaao similar to that
r.ow presented, for a requisition upon the Lieut. Governor
of Upper Canada, for the delivery of a person charged with
a felony committed in this state. I eonsidered it my duty
to refer the applicant to the General Government. The
answer of the Secretary of Slate was in substance, that in
asmuch as Congress had not passed any law on the sub
ject, and there was no provision by treaty in relation to it,
the General Government had declined to act upon such ap
plications. The view of the subject taken by the General
Government has served only to convince me that the
ground I had assumed was correct. If the right could be
exercised by the -General Government, provided its exer-
cise should bo regulated by law of Congress or by treaty,
the jurisdiction belongs to that Government, and not to
those of the states; and if the General Government could
not exercise it without the previous p assage of a law of
Congress or the intervention of a treaty, the Rtate Govern
ments, even if sharing the responsibility with the Gener
al Government, could not exercise the power without a
similar law or the intervention or a treaty.
I can imaeine no circumstance which could more seri
ously embarrass the General Government in its condus! of
the foreign relations 01 llie country , and more certainly
tend to bring the public peace into leopardy, than the dis
cordant action of the several states in the exercise of this
power. I have observed that the Governor of Vermont
has taken a different view of the Bubjcct from that here
presented; and that having issued his warrant for the dc
livery of a fugitive, upon the requisition of the Governor
of Upper Canada, a writ of Habeas Cornus has been issued
by a Judge of that state, and that the constitutional power
ol the Executive is now undergoing discussion there. Un
willing in any instance to assume doubtful powers, and
especially in cases so important to the security of our citi
zens and to the harmony of our foreign relations, I have
concluded that it is inexpedient to deliver citizens of this
state upon the demand of the Uovernment of foreign states
until the Constitutional power of the Executive Department
ol the state government is more clearly defined and estab
lished. Having arrived at this conclusion, it follows that
I cannot demand from other states the surrender of fugi
lives from this state.
While the view I have presented assumes that the con
stitutional power and responsibility relating to this subject
rest with the General Government, I apprehend from a
passage in your communication that' you arc in error, in
supposing that there is any provision by a statuto of this
state authorizing the Uovernor to make requisitions upon
the Governments of fore'gn countries for the delivery of
persons who have committed crimes in this state.
I am fully sensible of the inconvenience resulting from
the want of suitable regulations for the exercise of this im
portant national power, and I shall deem it my duty in a
respectful manner, to bring the subject to the considera
tion of the President of the United States.
I am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
Wm. II. SEWARD.
Piunce Saudeks Whose death was mention
ed a few days since, was born in Lebanon, Conn., in
February, 17S5. His mother, who was formerly
the slave of Charles Hinckley, Esq., deceasad, is
now living in Lienanon, at a very advanced age
His father, Cuff Saunders, familliarly called Dr.
Cufle, went into the Revolutionary war with the
late Dr. Philip Turner, deceased, of Norwich, who
employed CulT as an attendant iii the hospital,
where he acquired considerable skill, and used to
practice physic after the war till he died. After
the death of Charles Hinckley, Esq., his son, Or-
amel Hinckley, Esq., removed to Thetford in Ver
mont, ana took Ifince, who was a favorite, with
him, and educated him at Dartmouth College
After Trince left College, he taught the colored
school at Colchester Academy. He then went to
England, and was treated with much attention,
and introduced to the Royal Family. From thence
he went to llayti, where he died, aged 54 years
Prince was an uncommon colored man, had the
best education the country could afford, and made
good use of his advantages. A brother of his is
now living in Lebanon, and is quite an enterpris
ing ana respectable man, cultivating a good farm

State A. S. Societies. It is now only about
one year since a lew ol the state societies began
local action, and what do we see ? The national
society crippled ? No. She has raised and ex
pended more during the last year than she did the
year previous; and nearly or quite an equal amount
01 money has been expended in addition, 111 local,
stale, and county action. The extract we lately
published Irom the annual report ol the parent so
ciety shows this. We have every encouragement
therefore to press upon the friends of the cause in
tliis stale to renewed energy, liberality and activ
ity in supporting state and local, as well as nation
al action. friend oj Man.
A Democrat out of the collar. The Amer
ican Citizen, of Perry, N. Y., informs us that W.
J. Chapin, Esq. has been removed from the Post
mastership in the village for no assignable cause
but his abolitionism, and that being a democrat he
had the audacity to think for himself. We trust
the northern administration with southern princi
ples will have an abundance of such removals to
make. Mass. Abo.

" Reaii, and you will know !" said the wise
mother of the youthful and inquisitive Sir William
Jones. Those who would understand slavery and
abolition must read. Don't be contented with the
" lecturer" only. Get the books the lecturer quotes
from, and read the whole. Establish anti-slavery
libraries. Read some good weekly anti-slavery
newspaper. There is something new coming up
almost every day, on this subject, which every cit
izen should know, and which other newspapers
do not contain. A. S. lecturer.

Smuggling Slaves into Texas. The Houston
Star says, that several vessels have been fitted out
from New Orleans to proceed to Cuba, and smug
gle slaves into our country. The course intend
ed to be pursued in effecting this object, is to run
the vessel up the Sabine, and land them on the
U. States coast, Irom which the transportation of
them across the river into our country would' be
but the work of a moment. Louisville uaz.
They must do this, not because Texas is op
posed to slavery or the slave trade, in the abstract,
but because that juvenile republic, in the extacy of
its filial love, or in the ngnny of its desire to secure
the favor of slave-breeding Virginia, and Kentucky,
and South Carolina to the project of annexation,
by the bonus of a monopoly in her market, made
it a fundamental article in tier Constitution that
slaves should be impirted only from the United
States. The evidence is daily accumulating, that
the Texian land holders and speculators have very
little regard for this organic law, which we believe
has no penalty ; while the state of our own bor
der lines affords every facility for its evasion.
Texas. A rencontre took place on the 25th ult.
between Wm. H. Butler, and E. S. Kirby, in which
the latter was killed with a Bowie knife. Butler
surrendered himself to the civil authorities.
Trouble in Baltimore. The Baltimore Chron
icle says that almost ever since the organization
of the present councils of the city, the chambers
of one of the branches has been the scene of fre
quent disorders, not by any means calculated to
reflect credit on the body or the constituents who
sent them there.
" Occasional outbreaks, it says, of a virulent per
sonal character have taken place without hitherto
occasioning any thing more serious than the waste
of a little printer's ink, which might have been
belter employed. On Wednesday evening last,
however, an occurence took place, which it is fear
ed may end in serious consequences. During a
discussion on some resolution relative to the pay
ment of the members of the branch, one of the
honorable body look fire and moved a resolution
of inquiry in reference to a pecuniary transaction,
in which they were all joint partners, but to the
common slock of which it was left to be inferred,
another member had not contributed Ins share.
This set them all by the cars, and we understand
that yesterday a challenge to mortal combat was

was promptly accepted, and the weapons chosen

it had passed over the hail lay upon tlio ground

but being exhausted by the chase, and overheated,
he had not strength to swim through the eddies,
and soon sunk to rise no more.
Powder Mill Explosion Three persons kill-ed.-Qn
the afternoon of Saturday week, one of
the powder mills of the Messrs. Laughlin, near
the High Falls, about six miles from the village
of Catskill, was blown up, and three of the work
men, Scott, Murphy, and Washburn, were instant
ly killed. A young man by the name of Rowe,
who was standing near the door at the tune, says
that the press or screw at which the men were
busy, gave way, and as the powder ignited, which
was damp, he ran from the budding and fell at a
sufficient distance to escape with life, although
dangerously wounded. Fortunately the owners
and other hands employed by them were absent.
It is estimated that about a ton of powder was burnt.
The explosion was distinctly heard at Catskill.
Hail Storm. On Tuesdny Inst this neighbor
hood was visited with a severe hail storm, causing
much damage to the corn and other grain, and to
the garden vegetables. The hail also broke some
glass. Have not learnt the precise extent of the
storm, but from what information we have obtain
ed, are inclined to believe it was limited to a few
miles in width, and not far in length.
The cold, wet weather, and the hail storm have
nearly blasted all hope of the farmer about much
Indian corn in this vicinity. Rutland Herald.
Slave Trade. Let tec from Rio Jane'ro da
ted a couple of months since, mention that ther
were ut that lime in port thirty-six fust sailing ves
sels, fitting out for the detestable traffic in slaves,
as openly as colliers in the Thames. In the
month of January last, into the port of Rio alone,
10-12" slaves were' brought in three ships; and in
the month of February, K37 slaves were brought
in ten ships. As the destruction of life in these
voyages owning to the strict precautious used a
gninst capture, is seldom less than one half, these
transactions for one Rnizillinn port, and during
two months only, involve the sacrifice of more
than 14,000 human beings.
Application of Galvanism and Magnetism to
Machinery There is now in operation, at No.
48 Gold street, in this city, a machine, propelled
by a galvanic battery, on four electro magnets,
which furnishes a magnetic power already applica
ble and useful for many purposes. The motive
wheel of this machine is five feet in diameter,
weighing about four hundred pounds, and the
magnets, when under the action of galvanism,
cause it to revolve forty or fifty iim-s in a minute,
for many hours in succession. Nothing can 'be
simpler than the operation of this machine, which
is on a plan entirly new, ami quite different from
that of the machines propelled by this power
wh'ch have heretofore been exhibited to the public.
The vivid sparks of electricity which are
constantly emitted, while this engine is in motion,
bear evidence to the tremenduous energy of the
power now brought under the control of man for
uselul purposes of life.
No reason can be assigned, we believe, why
this power cannot be increased indefinitely. In
calculable benefit would be conferred upon society
by the discovery of this new and simple mechan
ical puwer, if it were only available from that of a
single man to that of one or two horses, where
the employment of steam is dangerous and exten
sive. We advise the friends of science and arts
to visit this machine, as it may bo seen daily in
operation at the place above mentioned. JV. Y.

The commercial intelligence is gloomy. There existed an

The most important piece of political news brought by
