great pith and pungency, in which the whoie house
was delighted. We give a single specimen, hop
ing to find the whole, ere long, as taken down by
the reporter. Mfc H. fell in with a fugitive, who
had been taken up in Rhode Island. The trem
bling captive sought counsel of the mechanic. On
lieing questioned as to the probability of his re
lease, Hill assured the man that he need not fear,
far he was in " Yankee land." " No, he added,
twelve men of Rhode Island will never deliver
you over lo the slaveholders unless it can be
proved that you were lorn contrary to the Decla
ration of Independence!" When ihe New York
mechanic resumed his seat, Mr. Lewis Tappan
paid a high compliment to his uprightness and fi
delity to the cause. " Mr. Hill,' said Mr. T. " was
my candidate for Governor."

Isaiah 6,8, For I the Lord love judgment, I hate rob
bery for burnt-offering.'
Robbery is taking away by force, or violence,
that which belongeth lo another. And it will not
make this violent act right, if the robber devotes
part of his gains to some religious purpose.
In former times God required the Israelits to
bring various beasts to be consumed on his altar
as a burnt sacrifice. A man goes into his neigh
bor's field and by violence takes fiom aim a sheep,
or an ox, drives it to the temple, and presents it to
the priest, who takes it from him, and is about to
offer the bullock upon the altar ; when, lo ! a voice
from the Excellent Glory, says, ' I hate robbery for
burnt offering.' The man is a thief. The ox has
been stolen. And now the robber has the presump
tion to offer it upon mine altar, and to bring me in
as an accomplice of the robbery. 1 abhor rolbery.
' The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to
me,' Prov. 18, 8. I desire mercy, and not such
sacrifice,' Hosea, 6, 6. A son of good old Eli
hears this solemn declaration, looks at the good
fat ox, and. longs for his perquisites out of the of
fering, and he soon finds an excuse for silencing
his. conscience, if he have any conscience left. He
wants a piece of fat beef; and surely it can do no
"hurt to encourage this Israelite in presenting his
ox for so religious a purpose. One rule must ap
ply to all, and we need ask no question for con
science sake. ' And oamuel said, Hath the Lord
as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as
in obeying the voice of the Lord ? Behold, to obey
is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat
of rams.' 1. Sam. 15, 22.
Such was the stale of the case in a.icient times.
Hcs it been altered in modern times ? Has God
become reconciled to robbery, and is he willing to
dispense with the claims of justice, and to partake
of the gains of oppression ? Instead of an ox I
will suppose the price of a man is presented to a
benevolent society. A slaveholder has sold an
able bodied slave for a thousand dollars, and sends
the money to the society. They arc told that it
is robbery, the price of blood. They hear a
voice saying, ' I hate robbery for burnt offering."
What shall they do ? Here is n thousand dollars.
It is sent by a very pious Christian, and for a very
good purpose. It will help our friends, and if we
keep it we may expect more from the same class
of people. As they sell off their slaves they will
send us a part of the profits ; but if we reject this
liberal sum, we shall never get any more from
them. Alas! what shall we do? We want money;
and as robbers get their money easy, they can af
ford to give liberally. Besides, if we don't take
it somebody else will. Well, you have taken it.
And is there no lingering about your heart ? Is
not conscience at work ? Can you retire into your
closet and thank God, that your poor brother was
sold for that money, and is now sweating and
toiling under the lash? An apostle says: 'Be
, not ye therefore partakers with them.' Eph. 5, 7.
' Be"not a partaker of other men's sins.' I. Tim.
5, 22. And God again repeats the declaration,
I hate robbery for burnt offerings' Is it not
better to obey God, than man ? And must not those
expect judgment without mercy, who have showed
no mercy ? I would shake my hands from hold
ing of bribes. . An Aged Minister.
For the Voice of Freedom.
Mr. Editor : .
In his letter to Rev. Mr. Bliss, President Lord
says : 'I am an abolitionist.' The editor of the
Chronicle, July 10th, says ' Dr Lord is not an aboli
tionist in the sense of the anti-sla very society.' Who
shall decide this important question ? I have sup
posed that to abolish was to destroy, annul, blot
out ; and that he who did abolish a thing, or aid
in doing it, was an abolitionist, as it respected that
thing. Dr. Lord holds to the 'obligation of all
men to attempt the immediate and entire removal
'of slavery, according to their best judgment, and
in such modes of action as are proper in respect
to other mora! and patriotic enterprises.' These
are just my views on the subject, and I have sup
posed that I was justly exposed to the reproach of
abolitionism. But if Dr. Lord is not allowed the
honor of being an abolitionist, I know not why I
should have the honor. It is true that I belong to
an anti-slavery society, and have felt it my duty
and my privilege to exert my feeble influence in
behalf of the slave ; but I call no man master, and
am responsible for the obliquities of no man in the
anti-slavery ranks, or in the ranks of christians,
untjl I embrace their views. Good men may em
brace, in their ardor for the abolition of slavery,
principles which I cannot adopt ; and whole asso
ciations of good men may try to fx a yoke upon
thechurch, & carry out a princ.iple,hch I believe,
would carry us back to Rome. In the one case
lam no more answerable for the principle pushed
forward, than in the other ; and abolition is no
more answerable for the errors, divisions, or sins
of those, who range themselves under her banners,
than Chiristianity is for all the errors, divisions
and sins of those who range themselves under
her banner. And the infidel may i.npute all the
errors, and obliquity, and crimes of Christians to
Christianity, with as much truth & propriety, as an
anti-abolitionist may impute the errors, or faults of
abolitionists to aboliiion. And Christianity is as
much answerable in the one case, as abolition is
in the other.
But there are "journalists and oiler leicers
who figure in the present anti-slavery movements,'
who seem to the Chronicle to be plague-spols,
which corrupt every thing they touch. Well, those
same journalists and leaders sometimes figufc in
peace societies, in temperance societies, in Bible
socieites, and in Christianity. Are all these so
corrupt by ihelr figuring, that there is no healing
of their malady? Are all their sins to be imputed
to each society, with which they are connected, or
are they to be divided among the different socie
ties, or are they all to be heaped on abolition, the
poor scape-goat ? Take one of the journalists,
Mr. Garrison, and paint him as black as you
please. He figures in the Christian church, and
has no little influence in the Christian world. Is
Christianity answerable for all his eccentricities?
Would- you turn away from that church, with
which he is connected? Is the temperanee causey
or the cause of peace on earth, to be resisted, and
abandoned, because he is connected with them,
' and figures in their movements? Why not? If
the aboliiion society is to be condemned because
Mr. Garrison figures in its movements, then Christ
ianity, and every institution, civil, social, or relig
ious, should be condemned for the same reason ;
"Doing nothing by partiality." And John said,
"Master, we -saw one casting out devils in thy
name , and we forbad him, because he followed
not with us." And Jesus said unto him "Forbid
him not ; for he that is not against us i3 for us.''
Luke, 9, 49, 50. When will the disciples of Christ
imbibe his spirit, and hearken to his commands?
What has the North to do with Slavery ?
The Lieutenant Governor of Virginia has recent
ly made a demand on the Governor of New York
for th ree free colored men, citizens of New York,
who are charged with the crime of having enticed
away a slave from Virginia. A gang of diaboli
cal man-catchers, in New York city, in the employ,
no doubt, of southern slaveholders, seized on the
victims and thrust them into prison, without any
legal authority, before the requisition reached Gov.
Seward. On the reception of the requisition,
Gov. Seward pronounced the evidence in the case
to be insufficient to sustain the charge, but he
consented, it is said, that the victims of this atro
cious system of land piracy should remain unlaw
fully imprisoned, until the pirates shall have time
to find or to manufacture sufficient evidence !
Why did not the Governoi of New York order
these men who had been imprisoned contrary
to law, to be released according to law ? What
has the North to do with slavery ? Vt. Tel.

To afford a just qualification to impressions a
bro'id as to the sentiments with which Mr. Clay
was addressed here, we publish the following copy
of a letter handed to him, while in this city. The
names affixed to it are all of abolitionists, and
their number might have been quite large, if a
few had not been thought sufficient. The publi

"Thome and Kimball's West Indies," "The Con

of the "Rochester Freeman." If they are favored
with an answer from Mr. Clay, we shall submit it

Hon. Henry Clay Sir: Having a high es
timate of your distinguished abilities, and having
heretofore rejoiced in many manifestations of them,
in behalf of great national interests, we cannot but
feel the deepest regret at your views on the sub
ject of slavery, as they have been publicly ex
plained. Permit us respectfully to ask, how the
principles of slavery can be at all reconciled with
the Declaration of Independence, with pure mor
als, or republican freedom ? How they can be
reconciled with the declarations of revealed truth,
that "God has made of one blood all the nations
of men, and that all men are brethren ?" And
how great, deliberate, and long continued hostili
ty to the justice and humanity involved in these
truths, can be reconciled to the idea of an irresist
able, overruling Providence, ever directed to their
Believing in these trutks, as containing the ba
sis of all true individual and national prosperity,
and that slavery is fatally at war with them, we
should delight, by our firesides, and in all our so
cial intercourse, if those great intellectual and
moral pewers, which were so honorably displayed
in behalf of freedom, when the constitution of
Kentucky was first framed when the struggle
for liberty in South America was at its crisis
when the treaty of Ghent was negotiated and
on other interesting occasions, could be brought
anew, with their maturest vigor into the holy ser
vice of humanity.
For ourselves, allow us to observe that we are
convinced, no efforts can long maintain slavery in
any portion of the wide circle of civiliza
tion, and its advocacy, therefore, while it will
Continually lessen the influence of the most gifted
of the men who engage in it will soon be connect
ed with nothing so much as regret and mortifica
tion. And while we are happy in this belief, we
also believe that the result we seek, cannot be af
fected by any agencies of violence and wrong, but
must be the fruit of facts, arguments and experi
ence, operating upon the attribute of our common
nature and interpreted and applied in the spirit of
truth, candor and kindness.
With these remarks, we beg leave to offer to
your acceptance, the accompanying publications,
which we think establish the irreparable misery
and mischief of slavery beyond denial the safety
and benefits everywhere sure to spring from it.

light, the peaceful, and Christian means intended
always to be used by us, and those with whom
we act, for the aboliiion of slavery.

venience., We beg leave to assure you of our corJi

Response of Ministers.
The proposal to furnish the Emancipator gra
tuitously to every minister who will lecture on
slavery, and take up a collection for our treasury
is meeting a favorable reception. The following
is a sample of the returns that are coming in.
Berkshire Vt. July 23, 1939.
Dear Sir, I have just seen in the " Voice of
Freedom," an offer of the Emancipator to minis
ters gratis for one year, who will deliver a lecture
on the subject of slavery and take up a collection
for the American A. S. Society. I beg lo say
that I am often in the habit of lecturing on the
subject, and urging on the friends of humanity
and human rights the duty of helping the Ameri
can abolition society both with their pravers, mon
ey, and influence. Seven years ago i left Eng
land with my family preached the gospel five
years nearly in L. C. and then crossed the Line
45, and took the'eharge of the two Congregation
al churches in Berkshire, and the one in Montgom
ery. I never go into the pulpit but I take the
poor American slave with me ; and I never mean
to part company with him till I see him standing
in the full attitnde of a man and a fellow citizen.
God in mercy hasten the happy day. We have
a society in Berkshire and many valuable friends ;
we are now making a collection. About a year
ago we formed a society in Montgomery and on
the Fourth we had a meeting a good meeting.
I addressed the people, and spent some time in
prayer for those in bonds appointed collectors to
raise what they could through all the town. I
lectured some time ago in Bakersfield and was
well abused I thought this a good sign. Good
sailors don't like to see the waters loo calm ; they
can make but little way.
Now, my dear sir, send me the Emancipator
and all the publications you think proper for dis
tribution, and I will renew my efforts both in
lecturing, praying, and stirring up the people
in these parts to help the great and merciful
Very affectionately yours,
"Recipe for Floating. Any human being
who will have the presence of mind lo clasp the
hands behind the back, and turn the face towards
the zenith, may float with ease, and in perfect- sa ft -tyin
tolerably still water aye, and .sleep there,
no matter how long. If not knowing how to
swim, you would escape drawing, when yon find
yourself in deep water, you have only to consider
yourself an empty pitcher let your mouth & nose,

simple instruction, we publish it for the benefit of
all, who either love aquatic sports or dread them.
May be so. But we have been trying to con
jecture how it happened that Br. Wright, alias the
Massachusetts Abolitionists, made the discovery.
Perhaps he may have been led to observe The al
titude of those "empty pitchers" who may be seen
in great numbers, every day, "floating at ease,"
upon the "tolerably stiTT water'' of popular opin
ion ; aye, and who "sleep there, no matter how

gainst the current. Their open mouths and fas
tidious noses evermore uppermost, in the compar
ison with their hearts and their brains. Being al
ways of the do-nothing class, they are quite ready
to "clasp their hands behind them." Accustomed
to the shallows of human thought, they are al
ways intent on self-preservation when they are
caught in the "deep water" of radical investiga
tion. They are commonly flat on their backs, and
the part of the sky directly over their own dear
heads always seems highest and engages their
principal attention. So much for the philosophy
of floating 'Friend of Man.

A Hard Case. An aged negro was recently
sentenced to ten years imprisonment in the peni
tentiary of Md., for reading to the slaves. This
was the shortest period the law allows for such an
offence. The judge declared.his intention, in ev
ery future case, to execute the utmost limits of the
law, which is an imprisonment of twenty years,
and after the expiration of the term, the offenders
are required to leave the Stale, and if they ever
return are to be taken up and sold as slaves. Such
a punishment for such an act! Ob. Evan.

their ingenuous, frank and honest course pursued
against slavery ; in telling us that there will be
no peace in the general assembly until slavery is
expurgated, and those who hold slaves retire by
themselves. ' But such men as Ccx and Bcecher,
