less a point where the duty of remonstrance
ceases. He instanced certain points of supposed
heresy in churches, of different denominations,
where by cpmnion consent, the parties were in
such a position that any remonstrance, however
w.ellfincant, w.puld do no good. Lie did not. think
the proposed' letter to the southern churches would
do good. Yet if the measure would do no good,
or even a little harm at the south, and much good
amongst ourselves, he would in such a case, go for
the motion. But he confessed his doubts as to its
effect here. Some, brethren would want to say
certain things as in. their view essential, whilst
others would be partial, to a.course of compromise,!
and a harmonious result was hardly to be expect
ed. He expressed strong abhorrence of slavery,
though dissenting on some points held by abol
tjonists. He was ready to pass resolutions and
c.oll slavery a sjjw.as willing to go over to the
abolitionists so far as he could sentimentally, if
the abolitionists would on their part come as far
as he thought they ought to come." He thought
i well to say something to apprise the coininunl
ty of out-, position, for, the abolitionists were so ac
live, that those who did not join their ranks and
did little, seemed to be in antagonist position. He
added in conclusion, that he should probably go a
gainst the resolution.
Mr. Washburn of Connecticut, who had lived
at the south and had no sympathy for slavery, said
that, if permitted to vote, he should go against the
resolution, on the ground that a letter would do no
Mr. Converse of Burlington moved an amend
ment to the resoluiton, in effect, that the, commit
tee so frame their report as to disclaim any con
nection with the anti-slavery societies, or any sym
pathy for those who indulge the use of denuncia
tory language, Sec. But. on some objections be
ing made, Mr. K. withdrew his motion.
The question was now put "to the Convention
and negatived by a vote of 21 to 1G.
Dr. Merrill then moved the appointment of a com
mittee of five to report what action the Convention
ought to take on the subject of slavery. This mo
tion was also lost, and the Convention adjourned
In the afternoon, the time was taken up in the
hearing of reports of the slate of religion in the
different associations. (It was interesting to no
tice that, with scarcely an exception, those church
es most signally blessed with revivals the past year,
have been actively enlisted in the cause of the
perishing heathen of the United ..States a fact
which we humbly commend to the notice of all
who are inveighing against abolitionists as dis
turbers of churches.)
Notat. all satisfied with the manner, in which
the slavery question had. been, disposed, of in the
morning, several brethren, not known as technical
abolitiopists, made a movement for calling the sub
ject up.again in a different shape. Dr. Merrill
accordingly gave an invitation to all the ministers
and lay delegates present to tarry after, the regular
exercises of the evening we:.e over, to consult on
the whole subject. Under this call nearjj the en
tiro body of the Convention, together with a con
siderable number of ministers present who were
not delegates, came together, making a body much
larger than the Convention proper. At this meet
. ing Dr., Wheeler, President of Vermont Universi
ty, presided, and Rev. Hiram Carle ton, of Stow
acted as secretary. A committee was chosen, of
which Rev. Mr. Hodges was the Chairman, with
instructions to report a series of resolutions to an
adjourned meeting; early on Thursday morning
The next mornaig the meeting re-assembled at
the appointed hour, President Wheeler in the
chair. Mr. Hodges, from the committee, reported,
&the following resolutions were adopted, the two
first unanimously, the third with only two or three
dissenting votes :
Resolved, That we esteem the system of slave
ry existing in this coy n try abhorrent to the princi
ples of the gospel, a violation of the' divine law,
and odious in the sight ot that God who hath made
of onp blood, nil nation.' of men.
Resolved, That immediate emancipation is due
to the slave. and imperatively binding upon the

Resolved, That we recognise our own duty to
make any effort consistent with our Christian
character and CH-it obligations, to procure the lib
eration ftf our colored brethren, as early as possi
ble,, from bondage.
' The main body of the members of the Conven
tion having thus openly " set their seal " to the
great fundamental doctrines of modern abolition
&n','it was thought desirable by some Dr. Mer
rill among t'ne nuraber-i-to have the same senti
ments re-affirmed" by the members in their Con
ventional capacity. The resolutions were, there
fore'.'pr'esented for the consideration of the Con
vention on the opening of the afternoon session ;
but, as there was not lime to give full scope to dis
cussion on account of the arrival of the hour allot
ted to thecomtnun'ion service, tlie resolutions were
laid on the table and made the special order after
the administration of the Lord's Supper,
A tiinely and appropriate discourse was then
delivered by the Rev. II. F. Leavitt of Vefgennes j
after which, the communion service was attended,
Dr. Tappan of Maine' and Mr. Cook of N. II. pre
siding at the table,
The resolutions before the Convention were then
taken up. .
Pr. Bates opposed with considerable warmth
the adoption of .the resolutions, by this body. In
the meeting where they had bean'already passed,
he did not vote, and had determined to take noj
part in any action of this kind at the present time.
He pronounced slavery .".the greatest curse of this
country," but said he should. vote against the res
olutions " because they were unfavorable to the
cause of Liberty." Especially was he opposed-lo
the third resolution, which implied actio?i,.,
A spirited debate followed, in which Messrs.
Leavitt, Goodhue, Kellogg and Taylor took part
in favor of the resolutions, and Messrs. Hall, Prof.
Hough, Lamb of Bridport, Washburn, and Wood
ward against, not to mention any who confessed
that they did not know which way to vote. The first
resolution however, passed the Convention in the
following words :
Resolved, That we esteem the system of slavery
existing in this country abhorrent to the principles
ot the gospel, a violation ol the divine law and odi
pus in the sight of that God who hath made of one
blood all nations of men.
On the second rasolution a further debate arose,
in which somethings were said that might as well
have been unsaid, an(a motion to lay the whole
on the table was' finally carried. The first reso
Union, rrevertrreless, in fact as well as by parliamen
tary ruj'e, stands as the resolution of the Convex
tion, while the whole have, in another meeting, re
ceived the solemn sanction of a majority of the
Convention of Congregational and Presbyterian
Ministers of Vermont,
We have no space for comment. The slavery
question has been the all-absorbing topic of the
Convention. The discussions have beecn con
ducted with ability, apd, with a few exceptions, in
good temper. The cause of the slave has been
greatly advanced by the proceedings of this body.
Let us thank God and take courage.
P. S-. Since writing the foregoing, we learn
that another and somewhat important chapter is
to be added to the proceedings of the Convention.
After the vote, ordering the resolutions to lie on
the table, and after all the members had retired,
save about a dozen, another motion was made
and cp.rried, d'rectmg all the proceedings relating

Hard Language. '
From Garrison's 4th of July Address.
1 We are accused of hard language. I admit the
charge. I, for one say in extenuation, that I have
not-been, able to lind a soft word in the English
tongue to. describe villany, or identify the perpe
trator of it. The man who. makes a chattel of
his brother. what ia he ? The man who keeps
back the hire of his laborers by. fraud what is
he ? ' They who prohibit the circulation of the Bi
ble what are they ? They who compel two mill
ions of, men and women to herd together, in pro
miscuous intercourse, like the brute beasts what
are they ? -They who sell mothers by the pound,
and. children in lots to suit purchasers what are
they ? "I care not what terms are applied to them,
provided they do apply. If they are not thieves,
if they are not adulterers, if they are not tyrants,
if they arenot man-stealers, I should like to know
what is their tue character, and by what names
they may be called. It is as mild an epithet to
say that a thief is a thief,' as it is to s;iy that a
spade is a spade. Words are but the sisnis of
ideas. ' A rose by any other name would smel
as sweet:' Language may be misapplied, and so
be absurd and unjust as, for example, to say that
an abolitionist is a lanatic, or. that a slaveholder is
an honest man. But to call things by their right
names is to use neither hard nor irnpropper lan
guage. Lpithets may be rightly applied, it is true
and yet be uttered in a bad spirit, or with a ma'
licious design. What then ? Shall we discard
all terms which are descriptive of crime, because
they are-nol always used with fairness and pro
priety ? He who when he sees opposition, cries
out against it who, when he holds his equal
brother trodden under foot by the iron hoofs of
despotism, rushes to his rescue who, when he sees
the weak overborne bv the strong, takes sides with
the former, at the imminent peril of his own safe
ty such a man needs no certificate to the excel
lency o.f his temper, or the sincerity of his heart,
or the disinterestedness of his conduct. It is the
apologist of slavery he who can see the victim
of thieves lying,.bleeding and. helpless on the cold
earth, and yet turn aside like the callous-hearted
priest and Levite who needs absolution.
But I will not enlarge upon this point. If south
em slaveholders and their apologists, cannot en
dure our rebukes, how will they be able to hear
the awful retributions of heaven, which must in
evitably overwhelm them, unless thev sneedilv re
pent ? I am ready to make a'truce with the South :
if she will give up her stolen property, I will no
longer brand her as a thiel ; u she wilt desist from
driving woman into the field like a beast, under
the lash of a brutal overseer, from stealing in
fants, from trafficing in human flesh, from keeping
back the hire of the laborers by fraud, I will agree
not to call her a monster ; If she will honor the
marriage institution, and sacredly respect the re
lations of life, arid, no longer' license incest, pol!u
tion and adultery, I will not represent her as Sod.
omilish in spirit and practice; if she will no long'
er prevent the unobstructed circulation of tlie hoiy
scriptures, and the intellectual and religious edu
cation of her benighted population, I will not stig
matize her as practically atheistical. In short, if
she will abolish her diabolical slave, system, root
and branch, at once and forever, we will immedi
ately disband all our anti-slavery societies, and no
longer agitate the land. But until she thus act,
we shall increase instead of relaxing our efforts
multiply instead of diminishing our associations
and make our rebukes more terrible than ever !
From the U. S. Gazette.
The Rev. J. .Scoble, of England, who has made
a tour through the British West Indies, for the
purpose of making observations and reporting to
a society in England, upon the operation of Eman
cipation in the Colonies, gave a lecture on Satur
day and Sunday evenings in this city, in which he
declared that- emancipation had tended to increase
-the produce of the colonies, and greatly to enhance
the value ot plantations, especially in Barbadoes.
British Guiana and Trinidad, and that almost ev
ery man who had been a-slaveholder, professed
himself as gratifiid at the result as the blacks could
be. Mr. Scoble is an eloquent speaker, and sus
tained his assertions by facts which he had gath
ered from the Islands; and he gave comparative
statements of the exports, and value of plantations,
which were altogether in favor of the present con
dition, even under pecuniary considerations alone-
Une statement struck us as extraordinary, viz :
That the plantations in Barbadoes are now worth
from, twenty to thirty-three per, cent, (wjthout the
slaves)' more than they were three years ago with
the slaves; that is, if we understood the speaker,
a plantation which, in 1831, was worth thirty
thousand dollars, with twenty-five slaves upon it
and included in the price, is now worth forty
thousand dollars without a single slave. The
moral condition of white and black, it was stated,
is greatly improved, and the cost of military police
dispensed witn, Uur head was so occupied with
pain that we had little room for the pleasure of
remembering the details ol the speaker. But we
came to a conclusion which we venture to rnen-
ion, viz. that, as the subject is deemed one of great
importance, one in which almost all are concern
ed, at least in which almost all evince an inter
est ; why should these details be left to nostra nger,
highly respectable as we believe him to be, or to
one whose opinions it may be supposed are not
changed, only strengthened, by what he saw in the
West Indies ? VY hy. not send two persons from
this country (this city indeed,) one' a modorate abo
litionist, the other a moderate colonizationist, (we
believe that we are right in the classification.) who
shall make the proper inquiries in all. the British
West Indies, and report thereupon, havincr refer
ence in, their reports to the peculiar circumstances
of this country, and those of the Islands,. The cost
of such a mission could.be easily raised.
It is certain that the reports of Mr. Scoble do not
agree with the opinions expressed in the Jamaica
papers, and by many persons who hold property on
that island. A mission, composed as we sucrest,
would settle the donbts arising nut of existing dif
ferences, and. do good by establishing the triitli. "'
Most Alarming Outrage ! His Honor Richard
M. Johnson, Vice President of the United States,
on a recent excursion with his two accomplished
daughters, took a short residence at Tuscaloosa.
The fair ones whoso'cbmplexion was-not liable to
injury from exposure io'ilre sun, were much prone
to promenade the street,' displaying the brilliant
jewels and rich paraphernalia which as the daugh
ters ot the second officer of the United Stales they
felt entitled to wear.

search, until, about two days after, they were found
on a sugar plantation, busily and laboriously em
ployed with an hundred others, under the care of
a master !
The indignant fmher was ready to serve upon
the manager the fate of Tccumseh when 'two
loafers stepped up and told him to beware. We,
