THE VOICE OF FREED OM .
Letter from Han. William Jay,
Eedfohd,7i1i Sept. 1SS0.
.Dear Sir, Observing from the papers that you
are one of a committee appointed to receive con
tributions for defraying the legal defence of the
kidnapped Africans, committed for piracy and
vivrdcr! I enclose a check for $20, which I will
thank you to add to your fund. '
It appears that these men have been arrested
and imprisoned on " the complaint" of two persons
who, although they prefix " Don" to their names,
I cannot " but regard them as villains." By their
own confession, they purchased those they call
their slaves, from " a cargo just arrived from Af
rica" and among them "children between the a
gea of 7 and 12 !"
- On the 28th of June, 1835, Spain concluded a
supplementary treaty with Great Britain for the
suppression of the slave-trade. The 1st article
declares "the slave trade on the part of Spain to
be totally abolished in all parts of the world ;"
and by the 2nd article, Spain provides that with
in two months after the exchange of ratifications
" a penal law shall be promulgated throughout the
Spanish dominions, inflicting a severe punishment
on Spanish subjects, who shall under any pretext
whatsoever take any part in the traffic in slaves."
The 12th article requires that every vessel con
demned by the Mixed Commission Court, shall be
"broken up entirely" and sold piecemeal, to pre
vent it from being again employed in the trade.
From the 1st January, 1S29, to 1st Jan., 1836,
29 Spanish slavers, with 8,312 slaves were con
demned by the Mixed Commission Court at Ha
vana. The slaves thus illegally imported are
In the six months from 30th June to 31st of De
cember, 1838, eleven Spanish vessels were con
demned by the Mixed Court, at Sierra Leone,
merely for being fitted out for the trade, having
been captured before they had received a single
slave on board.
On the 2nd Nov., 1S38, the queen of Spain is
sued a " Royal Order" to the " Captain General of
the Island ot Cuba, directing him " to apply the
strongest zeal in dictating the necessary meas
uresfor preventing this deplorable contraband, 6b'
liging the local authorities to prosecute withener
gy those who are engaged in it, and bring the per
petrators before the competent tribunals for their
exemplary punishment." A copy of this order was
also sent to the naval commander of the station,
" in order that he may contribute with the forces
under his command, toward carrying into effect
the beneficent wishes of her majesty.
It appears from a letter adBressed the 20th of
June, 1838, by the bpanish bee v of mate, to bir
George Villiars, British Minister of Madrid, that
it is lawful only for a " legitimate proprietor of
slaves to transport them from one port in Cuba to
another by sea ; and then only " provided he car
ried the documents proving his legitimate proper
ty." Ruez and Montez admit that they bought these
Africans out of a cargo which they well knewaa.fi
just been smuggled into Cuba in dehence ol trea
ties and laws ; they knew the men and children
they bought and intended to hold as slaves were
entitled to their freedom ; and they knew that the
official permits for their transportation which they
now exhibit were "obtained fraudulently and there
fore void ; and hence they are guilty of an act of
atrocious wickedness, and ought to be regarded
and treated as felons, subject by tho laws of their
own country to " exemplary punishment." Yet
these two "gentlemen" enter a complaint against
the men they were thus illegally holding in bond
age, for piracy and murder; and our authorities,
with a full knowledge of all the facts, sent to pris
on thirty individuals for an act which but for the
color of their skin would be generally regarded as
most heroic and praiseworthy. What would be
the feeling and conduct of this nation had an A
merican crew captured and sold as slaves by a
Barbary corsair, been under similar circumstances
carried into London, and there, on the complaint
of their Algerine masters, sent to Newgate under
a charge of piracy and murder ?
I observe it stated in one of the papers, that
these Africans will' " undoubtedly be surrendered
to the Spanish authorities." The Federal govern
ment interlered to prevent the surrender of the
Ba rubers, charged with murder, to the British
government ; and still later, decided it had no
power to surrender a murderer to the Canadian
authorities. Whence does it derive power to sur
render native Africans to Spain for a homicide
committed in self defence against Spanish felons?
If our courts assume jurisdiction over the Afri
cans; are they not bound in common decency and
justice,, to try their kidnappers also ?
I am sir,
Yours very respectfully,
Lewis Tappan, Esq. William Jay.
Slaveholding Ministry Rebuked.
Andover, Aug. 22, 1839.
At a meeting this morning of near fifty of the
students friendly to immediate emancipation, Sam
uel L. Rockwood was called to the chair, and
James Birney was appointed secretary.
It was then Resolved, That a committee be ap
pointed, who shall on ascertaining the certainty of
the Kev. Mr. Jones being a slaveholder, prepare
an expression of disapprobation of his admission
to the chapel of this Seminary.
S. G. Brainard, S. H. Wheeler and James Bir
ney were constituted the committee.
At an adjourned meeting the following pream
ble and resolutions were presented and adopted.
Wherea3, the Rev C. C. Jones, of Liberty coun
ty, Georgia, on the evening of the 21st inst. by
invitation of some members of the Faculty of the
Theological Seminary of this place, occupied the
time appropriated by the trustees for the religious
conference of the students : and whereas, .we, mem
bers of the above institution, believing slavery to
be sinful, have been informed that Mr. Jones is a
Resolved, That we deeply regret that he was
invited to participate in the public exercises of
this Seminary; and that he was commended to
the students as a minister of God,
Recolved, That we deem it both due to our
selves and the cause of freedom, not to neglect this
opportunity of expressing oijr disapprobation of al
lowing slaveholders to exercise the ministerial
Resolved, That in thus expressing our views
we entertain no disrespect to Mr. Jones personal
ly; but wish simply to manifest our unwilling
ness to extend the hand of fellowship to those
who have not repented of the sin of slaveholding.
Resolved, ' That we consider it more impor
tant to take this course, ftinsmuch as Mr. Jones
ha been reccommended to u as a gentleman of
intelligence and high Christian character ; deem
ing the influence of such a slaveholder more cal
culated to palliate the wrongs' ol's'avery in the
minds of northern Christians than that of any oth
er. Resolved, That a copy of the proceedings of
this meeting be presented to the Faculty with the
request that they will not hereafter permit any
slaveholding minister to conduct any public exer
cise of the institution,
Resolved, That the Committee respectfully
present a copy to the Rev, Mr. Jones.
Resolved, That the minutes of this meeting
signed by the Chairman and Secretary, be trans
mitted to the editors of the Boston Recorder and
New York Evangelist for publication.
Samuel L. Rockwood, Chairman.
James Birney, Sec'y.
Another Unlucky Refference ! The Hon.
Roger M. Sherman's unlucky reference to the
example of Dr. Edwards as being a reproof to
those who call slave holders men stealers is almost
equalled by the following, from the New York
" The Cooperstown Freeman's Journal informs
us that the following resolution was adopted by
the presbytery of Otsego on the 10th of June
" ' Resolved, That we as a presbytery deem it
the imperative duty of every minister of the gos
pel to raise his voice in vindication of the rights
of the oppressed, and to exert his ministerial in
fluence to do away the enormous sin of slavery ;
and that those ministers who refuse by their si
lence or evasion, to present the the claims of the
oppressed, either in their pulpits or on some other
suitable occasion, in our opinion, suppressed impoi
tant gospel truths, which are imperiously needed ly
the exigencies of the times,'
" The infatuated men who have thus opened
their churches to fanaticism, will live to mourn
over their lack of wisdom. Better by far, that
they should have closed their churches for a
twelvemonth, and compelled their parishioners
in the mean time to study John Angel James's
work on Christian charity. Their portion of the
church will soon become literally " the church
militant." But those who will sow the wind must
expect to reap the whirlwind." Com. Adver.

now mucn would De gained uy studying uie
writings of John Angel James may be gath

written by him to the editor ol the JN. X. iivan
gelist, "No minister, nor private Christian, coming
from the United States, however great his excel

When charity hasstrecthed itself to the uttermost
many find it a most puzzling matter to reconcile
revivals of religion with the opposition of the
South and the indifference of many in the North
and East to the abolition of slavery.
May He who by his grace has wrought the great
temperance reformation, and made vour country
an illustrious example to the world, and especial
ly, the father-land, enable'you in turn to intimate
thrt father kind in the abolition of slavery. Thru
will you be fitted and prepared, perhaps, above all
people to make known God's way upon the earth
his saving health among all nations."
If the Editors of the New York Commercial
Advertiser would copy ihese extracts, and then in
form their readers that Juhn Angell James is one
of the prominent members of the British Anti-
alavery Committee who sent " the renegade
George Thompson" to this country, they will per
haps be able to Judge how much his views ol
" Christian Charity," differ from those of of the
Presbytery of Otsego. Frieud of Man.
Another State Anti-Slavery Society !
New Jersey Organized ! The convention at
Whippany, the 27th and 28th of August, resulted
n the lormation of the JNew Jersey state Anti-
blavery society. .President, Alex. JN. Dougherty

the centre of operations. The political duty of
abolitionists is thus recognized ;
"Resolved, That we will neither vote for, nor
support the election of any man for President or
Vice President of the United States, or for Gov
ernor, or for any legislative office, who is not in
favour of the immediate abolition of slavery.

earnestly entreated to lose no opportunity to carry
his abolition principles to the polls, and thereby
cause our petitions to be heard through the medium

Ohio. We have received a copy of the last An
nual Keport of the Uhio state Anti-slavery so
ciety, for which we feel grateful. We had inten
ded to make some interesting extracts before this
time. On the subiect of political action the Re
tort holds a high tone, and we are happy to learn
Irom it that our mends in that state are farther
advanced in that branch of their abolition education
than we had supposed. On one important sub
ject, the duty ot aiding lugitive slaves, in stern
and and settled defiance of wicked law makers,
the Ohio abolitionists are setting a lesson for the
whole country, and preparing the way for eman
cipation in Kentucky, b rom the 1 reasurer s re
port, it appears that the society has expended near
ly $10,000 the year past, and has a small balance
in the treasury, A hint for New Yorkers !

New Jersey State Convention. An Anti-Slavery
Convention for New Jersey, convened (as is
presumed) at Whippany, yesterday, Preparato
ry to this convention, the Emancipator publishes
an elaborate account of slavery as it still exists in
New Jersey. No one, after reading it, can fail
to rank New Jersey among the slave States!
In this case, we apprehend, the convention will
not be asked " why don't you go to the South?"
The present movement on the subject will have
been worth its cost, if it succeeds in abolishing
slavery in New Jersey. At the last census,
(1830,) the number of slaves was 2,354. No
slave in New Jersey is permitted to be a witness
against a white man. There are penalties for
trading with and harboring slaves. Rewards are)
provided by statute for taking up slaves ten miles
from home. Slaves must not stay out over night.
Any constable or any other person may disperse
them when assembled " in a disorderly manner,"
&c. &c. " What has the North to do with slave
ry ?" Friend of Man.
Steam Packets. It is already known that
steam ships are building to run twice a month be
tween England and Halifax. It has been official
ly announced that the government intended to
have steam communication with oil the West In
dia Islands, nnd the ports of South America ; and
also, the packets are to call at Charlsston S. C.
if not at another of the southern ports. The
steam ships are to be fourteen in number, and of
1400 tons burthen and there are to be two mails
per month to and fro.
The Great Western steamer, arrived on Tues
day morning at 10 o'clock, after a passage of six
teen and a half days, having departed from Bris

o'clock. She brings 110 passengers, among
whom are the Rev. Dr. Beman, of Troy, and the
Rev. Mr. Kirk, of Albany. There is but little
general intelligence. Money is a little easier.

a triumph over the Chancellor of the Exchequer,
by having driven the latter from his purpose of re

trade suppression bill. A very strong feeling of

" Mr. O'Connell adverted to die newspaper
statements which turned out to be correct, of a
conspiracy on the part of Portuguese traffickers in
slaves to have poisoned wine on tho decks of
their vessels in case of capture, and to poison the

Portugal. The excitement produced in Lis
bon, in consequence of its being known thatth'
British Government was at length seriously en
gaged in carrying out its declaration with respect
to the suppression ot the Portuguese slave-trade,
and had actually carried its bill for that purpose
tnrough the House ot Commons without opposi
tion, had somewhat subsided, and in the highc
circles it had become clear that the war-like out
bursts of the government press would not be sun
ported ; and the new Premier, although raised to
his present eminence by abuse of England, had

The Liverpool Standard a high Tory and An
ti-Abolition paper, of Aug. 22, quotes with much
approbation a speech of the Duke of Wellington
in opposition to the bill, on the ground that it was
the duty of Great Britain to declare war at once
against Portugal, or any other nation that would
not execute its own treaty stipulations for the sup
pression of the Slave Trade. He also objects a
gainst the right of search in time of peace, and. on'
this point takes, substantially, the same ground
with our own government. I he supporters o
slavery will, therefore, derive little consolation
from the opposition of the Tory party in England
to the measures ol the ministry, it is to be re
gretted that British Statesmen, of all classes, are
as yet so slow to see what they must inevitahly
learn at last, that the only effectual measures a-
gainst the Slave Trade will be a movement by
tne government, diplomatically, to obtain the uni
versai auoiition ot slavery jtsell, So long as men
are held as property, as Mr. Clay has well said in
his great speech. J3ut Great Britain has influ
ence enough with Portugal and Brazil, and prob
ably with Spain, to obtain an immediate decree
for the abolition of slavery. And a proposal to
negotiate with our own Republic on the same sub
ject, would greatly hasten the result in this court

pect that Mr. O'Connell is about to make a very
important move in Parliament on the subject of

glish papers say that the negotiations on behalf of
lexas in Paris are carried on through the medi
