who was stationed nt Montserrat. Ha spent the
fivo years previous to July, Jivso, among the Oat-
frees in Africa. "I inquired of Mr. S.," says Mr.
K., "what lie thought of uniting trading colonies
with missionary stations. I shall lonjf remember
the 1 holy indignation' of his look and voice when
he replied. The sentences inclosed in parenthe
sis are his very words, which nre loo deeply im
pressed on my mind ever to be lorgotten. (' You
might as well think to ally the bottomless pit
With the New Jerusalem. It is mingling light
and darkness. It is attempting to do the work 01
God through ;he aid and agency of batan. )
" He says the commerce carried on with the
natives is a system of deception and fraud. The
conduct 01 tne traders creates suspicion anujeaiuus
ies against all white men, and obstacles almost
insurmountable nre thus thrown in the way of iV
missionary. His color is the same as that of the
traders, his religion is of the sams name, and his
language is the same. The hearts of the natives
nre shut against him."
Mr. Clay said that every colonist is a missiona
ry, not to preach merely, but to enforce the claims
of religion by example. And yet, in regard to
the free people of color, he, in the same speech,
pronounced them the vilestof the whole population,
worse than the slaves. " What sort of Christiani
ty," asked C. C. Burleigh, " wilPSuch men intro
duce into Africa ? . . . We cannot Christianize men
into n better religion than we have got ourselves.
Until, then, we see that the religion of the United
States has put down the slave prisons in the city
of Washington, and in Alexandria until it has
opened the prison doors of the captive in this land
lias proclaimed liberty to all the inhabitants there
of, we cannot see that this same Christianity is
going to abolish slavery in Africa."
" Shall the Christianity of one conlinrnt make
it the home of oppression, and yet make another
continent the home of freedom ? If we should
convert the native Africans to our Christianity in
the way proposed, why should they not ant as we
do ? Why should our Christianity make them
any belter than it does us ? . . . Why should we
expect that Christians will be better made in Af
rica than in America?. . . The fact is, until this
nation is brought back to the primitive and pure
Christianity, vain is the attempt to convert Africa
to such n Christianity, by rreans of a slave-holding
and slave-trading Christianity."
To the Vermont Mercury we would say, that
its disclaimer as to Mr. Cresson's interest in the
Bassa Cove Colony, is not quite broad enough.
Strange as it may seem to the Mercury, we sup
pose a man may have a pecuniary interest in that
Colony without possessing lands therein. We
say again, that we understand our correspondent
to have referred to Mr. C's interest by way of
trade. Mr. Beckley is now absent in Michigan ;
but we see no occasion, at present, for the proof,

For the Voice of Freedom.
Meeting at Townshcnd.
The Quarterly Convention of the Vermont A.
S. Society met at East Townshend, at 9 A. M.,
Nov. 20, and was organized by choosing Hon. W.
R. Shafter, Chairman, and Rev. II. N. Graves,
Secretary. Hon. W. R. Ranney, Rev. Mr. Bur
rows, Rev. J. Parsons, Hon. C. Phelps and J.
McM. Shafter were appointed a committee to pre
pare business for the Convention. The following
Preamble and Resolutions were reported and unan
Preamble. It is the intention of all philanthrop
ic governments to secure, next to their perpetuity,
the happiness of their own citizens, and of the
world, and while all wish to endure, it is Free or
Democratic communities alone that would do so
through the intelligence and morality of their con
stituent members. Yet, great as are the induce
ments to knowledge and virtue, it is not to be con
cealed that in Republics, where offices are elective
and all have a share in the entire concerns of gov
ernment, the excitement of party politics and local
interest, tend to obscure and degrade those great
First Principles, that are the only safe guards of
popular liberty. It is believed we can secure to
ourselves safety at home or respect abroad only by
a strict and constant observance of our great Re
publican principle, " That all men arc created free,"
and are " equally entitled to the enjoyment of life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness." While such
should be the rule in order to gain for our pro
testations of attachment to liberty much credit ; it
is not to be denied that the American Republic
now occupies towards the rest of the nations a pe
culiar and before unheard-of position. In its ori
igin and constitution it contains a denial of Bar
onial privileges, and of the 'Divine Right of
Kings," and yet it retains and fosters in its midst
an institution which holds tmd treats men as prop
erty by a tenure more strict than that of ancient
villanage and which? is without a paral
lel in the history of the civilized world. We
consider that the institution of slavery as it exists
with us, tends to destroy and does materially les
sen the influence of our great experiment of self
government upon the progress of liberty and the
acknowledgment of the " rights of man" through
out the despotic world. Nor do we forget that pe
culiar as is the position of the Republic in regard
to other nations, its policy as connected with
slavery is no less singular in regard to the
citizens cf our own. The slave, as be
tween his master and himself, is regarded merely
ns property, while his personality as between the
master and the rest of the community, forms the
basis of representation ; thus making his human
ity in the only place where it is recognized, a
reason and a means of the moio deeply injuring
and oppressing him. Anti-republican as was this
coalition at its outset, its practical workings have
only the more fully developed its pernicious ten
dency, and have shown that the spirit of slavery,
as it is the antagonist of liberty, so it is all-grasping
and never will be quieted until it has reduced
the laborer of all colors to an entire subjection to
the aristocratic few. With such sentiments, we
cannot but recognize the expediency of voluntary
associations which have for their object the main
tenance and promulgation of the doctrines of II u
man Rights, and the exposure arid conibnlting of
oppression wherever it may found.
Therfore, Resolved, 1st. That the Anti-Slave
ry Society, as it advances and maintains the true
doctrines of ethics and political economy; as it
opposes itself lo one of the greatest moral and po
litical evils of all times ; so it is worthy of the ap
probation and co-operation of every moralist and
2d. Resolved, That it is as inconsistent for abo
litionists, not to carry out their principles by cor
responding action, as it is for Christians to neglect
the most apparent dutie3 of their profession.
3d. Resolved, That religious, moral and politi
cal power are indispensable in the accomplishment
of this noble and philanthropic enterprise and that
the "Peculiar Institution" cannot long withstand
their united influence.
4th. Resolved, That viewing the Colonization
Society as a missionary enterprise, as having for
its object the Christianization of Africa, we wish
it success, and only hope that for the future it will
entertain and manifest the same Christian solid
tudo for the happiness of our colored population,
which it so loudly professes to feel for the for
5th. Resolved, That the abolition of slavery
furnishes the only efficient guarantee against the
Foreign Slave Trade.
6th. Resolved, That the abolition of slavery in
the British West Indies furnishes an additional
laurel to the British crown, and teaches a lesson
in moral ethics which our Republic seems slow
7th. Resolved, That universal emancipation
must and will precede millenial glory, and its calls
are imperious upon ministers and churches to take
the lead in this enterprise.
8th. Resolved, That prejudice on account of
color is really a prejudice against the law of Na-
ure and Nature's God, therefore a great sin.
9ih. Resolved, That the Christian law of kind
ness and love to enemies does not authorize re
sistance to injury, and the slave can alone look to
the declaration, " Vengeance is mine, I will repay,
saith the Lord."
The foregoing Preamble and Resolutions were
ably and eloquently supported by Hon. W. R.
Ranney, Hon. C. Phelps, Rev. Messrs. Burrow?
and Upham, Mr. J. McM. Shafter, and others,
W. R. SHAFTER, Chairman.

Seth M, Gates uud Geirit Smith.
We recently published an admonitory letter
from Gerrit Smith, Esq;, to Hon. Seth M. Gates,
member of Congress from the Genesee District,
in New York.- The Le Roy Gazette, Extra,
brings us a lengthy letter from Mr. Gates, in re
ply. The following paragraph, will suffice lo
show, on what grounds Mr. Gates endeavors to
vindicate his course :
"I acknowledge that I am a Whig, was nom
inated as such, and feel a deep interest in the
prominent measures of which that party are the
known advocates : and after the generous confi
dence the Whigs of Genesee have been pleased
to repose in me, I should indeed consider myself
"blind to truth and duty, basely to turn my back
upon their interests, unless I had a very different
cause for it, than any which has yetoccured.
" You speak "uf the "defection in the year 1836,
in the ranks of abolition," and of its cruel influ
ence on the cause of the slave, as matters conceded
and certain. Your remarks may' he suited to the
meridian of Madison, but I deny that they are to
Genesee. We are conscious of 110 such general
defection. And I think 1 may safely say, that a
very vast majority, if not "nineteen twentieths" of
the abolitionists of Genesee, stili believe that
they conscientiously discharged their duty lo the
slave and their country in the exercise of the
elective franchise last fall; and most of those
who do not believe so, so far as I know, are men
who, like yourself seem to have become disgus
ted with all political parties, and feel little inter
est in any except abolition politics.
" In stating the number so great, I huve not
forgotten, sir, the last fall convention at Warsaw,
where I met you, and with others ineflectually re
sisted your resolution calling upon the abolition
ists of Genesee to repent of voting for a ticket,
which, through the tolerence and liberality of the
Whigs, had upon it a Lieutenant Governor, n
Senator, two members of Congress, and nt least
three out of four members of Assembly, all then
supposed to be consistent abolitionists, and a Gov
ernor, to say the least, decidedly more liberal and
tolerant in his views than the candidate opposed
to him, and whose answer to the interrogatories,
you yourself was pleased to write me after the
delate, you found upon a fresh examination, 'was
in truth more anti-slavery than you was aware
of.' I do not forget, sir, that a majority of the
meeting voted to repent, not only for themselves,
but certainly with great generosity for the rest of
the county; but so far as I have ever heard, it
came very generally to be considered a work of su
pererogation, never spread, and judging from the
result of our late convention, I imagine that it
has been retrograde. Why, sir, should we all
come to practice what my friend Chaplin, face
tiously calls the 'sublime of abolition,' throw away
our votes until the political parties are driven to
the necessity of selecting their candidates from our
truest men, we can hope but for little improve
ment upon the ticket for which the abolitionists of
Genesee supposed themselves to be voting last
fall; however some of us are like to disappoint
their and your expectations. Then, ns now, they
maybe deceived. It is true Governor Seward's
answer was not what I would gladly have had it;
but it was in many respects 'decidedly anti-slavery,'
and his public life Jhas evinced a heroic devo
tion to the 'supremacy of the laws,' an unyield
ing resistance to the organized rights of an humble
citizen, and a heart deeply imbued with the great
foundation principles of liberty and equal rights.
His conduct since his election has increased,
rather than diminished the confidence reposed in
him, and I am informed in his late letter to the
Governor of Virginia, among other things deci
dedly favorable to human rights, he has distinctly
avowed the great fundaments; onii-slavery princi
pie that 'man cannot hold properly in man.' Was
it nothing, sir, to secure the election of such a man,
in the place of one who recommended the enact
ment of laws lo prohibit anti-slavery publications !
Was nothing accomplished for the slave in
electing to the popular branch of our Legisla
ture, men who passed an act giving to the fugi
tive Irom slavery, the right of trial by jury, in the
place of men decidedly opposed to it, who had
joined hands and coalesced with a licentious nnd
infidel philosopher, with a wild and fanatical ng-
rarianism, and haul voted the Ministers ol the
Most High, and their prayers out of the halls of
" There may have been pro-slavery men anion"'
the Whigs at the last Legislature, but for none of
them am I conscious of having voted, and yet I
was expected to evince a penitent sense ofmy per
nicious error, of my folly and sin, and hereafter
to number myself wiih those who do not vole pro-
"I confess I voted for Mr. Seward, and I am
absolutely so blind notwithstanding all the light
which has bsen shed upon the subject, as to he
very well satisfied with that vole. You, sir, I re
member, warned ns not to vote for him, but your
self voted and called earnestly upon others to vote
for Mr. Bradish. Since that vote, sir, Mr. Sew
ard has taken new and strong ground in fa vor of
human rights, while all I have since heard from
Mr. Bradish, is, that he has made a very hand
some contribution to ihtxlQireenof all HvmltigsAhe
COLON l.AATION SOCIETY, a society which
you regard as a main pillar in the Temple of
Slavery. I would, with perfect good humor, en
quire, whether, if you insist upon my taking the
'Stool of Repentance for voting fur the former,
you could not with some propriety bear mc com
pany for voting for the latter? I can hardly ven
ture to predict what effect such an example, with
the prospect of such company, would have upon
Georgia and Maine. The Legislature of
Maine having "declined taking any measure to
give satisfaction to the State of Georgia for the
violation of its constitutional rights, by the refusal
of Governor Dunlapand Governor Kent to deliv
er up to its authorities upon their demand the fu
gitives from its justice, Fhilbrook and Kellerarr,"
Governor Gilmer says the latter State will be jus
tified in declaring by law, that all citizvns of
Maine who may come within its jurisdiction on
board of any vessel as owners, oflkers or mari
ners, shall bo considered as doing so with the in
tent to commit the crime of seducing the negro
slaves from their owners, and he dealt wilh accor
dingly by the officers of justice. Eah !
Imvortant from Washington'. Extract of a
Metter from an officer in the Army to the Editor of
the Courier and Enquirer :
" We are on the eve of another Indian War,
likely to prove more expensive, as well as des
tructive to human life than the mismanaged and
shamefully protracted War of Florida. You are
aware of the dastardly feud that existed between
the Ross and Rridge parties of Indians, growing
out of the treaty made through the agency of one
Schermerhorii w ith the Government. The infa
my of this treaty was exposed in Congress; since
that time great animosity has existed between
these? two parties, which has been increasing, un
til the death of Ridge was the result. The
Government demanded those engaged in this
murder, which has created great excitement
among the Indian, thiv flame has been fanned by
some Semiiiolcs sent from Florida, and great
appn.'heiis-ioiis are t-nlertnincd kat war should
break out among them and spread among the oth
er tribes ere it can be checked.
" An express has been received from Fort
Gibson setting forth the state of things, and the
exposed condition of the whites to the numerous
tribes of Indians that the policy of this govern
ment has concentrated on the spot. Should all
the tribes of Indians w est of the Mississippi unite
against the whiles, we shuuld then have an Indi
an war more fatal in its cousequences than any
that has been waged for the las, half century.
Fathet and Son both elected! It is conceded
we believe, by both parties, that ihe venerable
Seth Sphaghe, and his son, Se'th SrnAcui?, Jr.,
are both elected to theSenalc from Plymouth coun
ty ; the former as a democrat, the latter as a whig
but both as abolitionists. The son, therefore,
has not beaten the father, neither has the father
hcalcn the sou; hut both together htxve beaten the
peo -slavery voters of the county. Liberator.
