the tears gushing from their eyes, and they raised
their neat cotton Aprons, and wiped their faces un
der the cutting anguish of severed all'octions. They
too, were mothers and sisters, weeping at the the
departure of their sons and brothers; and there,
too, were fathers, taking the last look of their
wives and children. My whole attention was di
rected to those on the shore, and they seemed to
stand in solemn submissive silence, occasionally
giving utterance to the intensity of their feelings,
by a sigh, or a stifled groan. As the boat was
loosed from her moorings, they cast a distressed,
lingering lo;)k towards those on board, and turned
BWay in silence. My eye now turned to thoso in
the boat; although I had tried to control my feel ings,
arnids my sympathies for 1 hose onshore, I
could conceal them no longer, and I found myself
literally "weeping with those that weep." I stood
near them, and when one of the husbands saw his
wife upon the shore waive her hand for the last
time, in token of her affection, his manly efforts to
restrain his feelings, gave way, and fixing his wa
tery eyes, exclaimed, " This is the most distres
sing thing of all! My dear wife and children,
farewell! The husband of the other wife stood
fveeping in silence, with his manacled hands raised
to his face, as he looked upon her f.ice for the lust
"Of the poor women on hoard, three of them had
husbands whom they left behind. One of the
third had none. These husbands and fathers were
among the throng on the shore, witnessing tho de
parture of their wives and children; and as they
took their leave of them they were sitting together
upon the floor of the boat, sobbing in silence, but
giving utterance to no complaint. But the dis
tressing scene was not yet ended. Sailing down
the Capo Fear river twenty-five miles, we touch
ed at the little village of Sinithport, on the south
side of the river. It was at this place that one of
the slaves lived, and here was his w ife and five
children; and w hile at work on Monday last, his
purchaser took him avay from his family, carried
him in chains to Wilmington, where he has since
remained in jail. As we approached the wharf, a
flood of tears gushed from his eyes, and anguish
seemed to have pierced h'l-i heart. The boat stop
ped but for a moment, and as she left, he bid fare
well to some of his acquaintances whom he saw
upon the shore, exclaiming, "Boys, I wish you
well; tell Molly (meaning his wife) and the chil
dren, I wish them well, anil hope God will bless
them." At that moment he espied his wife on a
stoop of u house some rods from the shore, and
with one hand which was not in the hand-cuffs, he
j)ulled off his old hat, and waiving it towards her
exclaimed " Farewell." As he saw, by the waiv
ing of her iipron, that she recognized him, he lean-
back upon the railing, and in u faltering voice
repealed, " f urcwell, forever." After a moment's
silence, conflicting passions seemed lo tear open
his heart, and he exclaimed, " What have I done
that I should suffer this doom? O, my wife and
children, I want to live no longer!" and then the
'big tear rolled down hio cheeky w hich he wipetj
nway with the palm of his unchained hand, look
ed once more at the mother of his five children,
and the turning of the boat hid her face from him
forever. As I looked around, I saw that mine was
not the only heart that had been affected by the
scene, but that the tears standing in the eyes of
many of my fellow passengers, bore testimony to
the influence of human sympathy; and I could, as
nn American citizen, standing within the limits of
the old thirteen States, but repeat the language of
Mr. Jefferson, in relation to the general subject:
f I tremble w hen I think that God is just." After
we left Sinithport, I conversed freely with all
these persons; and in intelligence and respectabil
ity of appearance, the three men who have thus
been torn from their families, would compare fa
vorably with the respectable portion of our color
ed men at the north. This is a specimen of what
almost daily occurs in the business of the slave
As we exvected. The whig papers greedily
opy Mr. Garrison's denunciation of the Liberty
party, but they neglect to say that that denuncia
tion is predicatedupon the fact that Liberty mini do
,not denounce the clergy, in a mass, as a brother
hood of thieves,' the American church as 'a cage
of unclean birds,' and 'demand, in the name of
-God and humanity, the dissolution of this blood
.cemented, atheistical Union.' Mr. Garrison de
nounces us, it is true, but he gives, in the same
connection, the reasons of his denunciation his
iless scrupulous w hig allies, copy the denunciation,
but carefully suppress tho reasons upon which it
is based. Honest men, feeling strong in the right
eousness of their cause, could never be guilty of
fiuch pitiful fraud. Lhrishan breeman.
'Reduction of Postage. We have at length
he details of Mr. Senator Merrick's Bill reducing
postage. Another bill, it is supposed, will be pre
sented in the lower House, of a different charac
ter. Mr. Merrick's hill proposes to give five
cents for all letters under 100 miles, and ten
ents as the highest postage on a single letter.
This corresponds with public opinion, as far as it
has reached us, and appears to be just and rea
sonable. The bill makes the circulation of all
the newspapers within the county free, and out of
Jhe county a halt cent, and over 1UO miles one
cent. Pamphlets and other printed matter two
and a half cents per ounce. Franking abolished
excepting to the President, and heads of depart
ments, ond members of Congress. The pamphlet
matter may be rather high, nut that matter will be
examined in the progress of the bill. I he post
master general, in reply to a call from the senate
sent in a report of post office statistics, from which
it appears thai, up to June 1843, the nmount re
ceived for letter postage was 4'3,712,786, and
newspaper and printed matter $536,547. Cost of
mail transportation, $ 2, 947, 31 9. This leaves a
email balance in favor of government.
The most important item in the report is the
test of the franking privilege. The number of
free letters mailed from Washington in J840, du
ring four weeks only of the session, was 466,354;
the number of documents during the same tune
was. 4,315,948, weighing 359,579 pounds. Here
we nave the great source of the expense of carry
ing the mails the free mailable matter documents,
we admit, should be published, but in limited
quantities. Members should be furnished only
with a small number each, and not one for every
constituent in his district here is the want of e-
conomv requiring reform, here is the cause of
heavy contracts for carrying tho mail.

The President's Message, which cainc to hand
on Wednesday week, by the Independence, Capt.
Nyc, has iceu very unsparingly analyzed. It has
given little satisfaction on this side of the water.
Of the various pens to which it has offered em
ployment, all, without exception, find fault either
with the tone of its morality or its overreaching
animus. 1 he absence ot all censure ot the repu
diating states, in so elaborate a document, i3 held
to he one of its primary defects; the frccbooting
style in which it recommends the erection of
American military posts on the Oregon, while the
territory itself is in dispute, has given much of
fence; and the manner in which the President
hints lis wishes for the annexation of Texas, and
the hard words he bestows upon Mexico, (from
which it is evident that he desires to proceed to
blows with the tottering Republic,) has been held
to indicate a very low standard of moral feeling.
All these points have been sharply criticised.
The Crown Solicitor has addressed a formal no
tice to Mr. O'Connell, Mr. J. O'Conncl, Messrs.
Steele, Gray, Barrett, Duffy, Ray, the Rev. J.
Tierney, and even the Rev. P. J. Tyrrell, who is
no more, that their trial will be held at the bar in
the Court of Queen's Bench, Dublin, on Monday,
the 15th inst.
The revised jury list, consisting of seven or
eight hundred names, does not include, it is said,
more than 200 Roman Catholics. This is a much
smaller number than it ought to have been; but
the old exclusive and condemned panel had not
more than thirty available Roman Catholics alto
gether. About Monday, the 8th inst., the High
Sheriff will be required by the Attorney-jreneral
to attend the Court of Queen's Bench, in order
that a special jury may be struck for the trial of
the traversers in the State prosecutions. Num
bers, corresponding with all the names in the'spe
cinl panel, will he placed in a box, and, in the
presence of the solicitors for both sides, forty
eight names will be drawn by ballot.
The New Orleans Tribune has a letter from
Havana, dated Dec. 22d, of which the following
is an extract.
"Things here are getting worse and worse every
day, and it strikes me a change must come very
soon. The negroes in the country give a great
deal of trouble. They rose a day or two ago, up
on the estates of the Aldamas and the Alfonso's.
It appears there was an extensive conspiracy, in
which the best slaves were engaged. Nearly 500
negroes in arms were killed, and a large number
of prisoners were taken. The Americans residing
in Matanzas have asked for an American man of
war to be in that port, in case they arc compelled
to leave the island."
From Mexico. By the arrival of the schooner
Merchant at New Orleans, the Courier of the 9th
has the following:
The Diario, says the Yucatan Commissioners
arrived at Mexico on the 11th ult. On the 13th
they were presented to the President, who direc
ted the Minister of War to arrange this affair as
promptly as possi lie. The conferences have al
ready commenced, and it is possible that Yucatan
will speedily be reunited to the Republic.
The Minister of Santa Anna, Senor Jose Maria
Tornel, who unfortunately lost his wife a short
time ago, has expressed a desire to retire from
public affairs, and has offered his resignation.
According to an article in one of these papers,
an attempt has been made to assassinate Gen. San
ta Anna, which is attributed to the Texans. The
paper refers to the Mexican journals of the 8th of
December for the details of this affair. We have
seen nothing relative to it in any of those hereto
fore received by us.
The general commanding at Oajaca informs the
Minister, of War, that on the 29th of November
Lieut. Col. Jose Maria Munoz captured and de

MURDER BY LAW
The following sentence of death was pronounced
by a limb of the law, upon a man for obeying God
by rendering assistance to a fellow in his flight
from his murderous pursuers and satanic oppress
ors, we hud in a JNew Urlcans paper.
The great question, wither men shall obey
iron's rignteous laws orjtmn's wickeu ones, is
daily being brought before?iu natiSu with more
and more distinctness, and rn so many different
ways that slaveholders themselves cannot tret a
round it nor over it. In this case it makes one's
blood run cold to see how amazingly pious tlii
unjust judge talks, wneu in the very act of taking
a man's life for one of the plainest decdsof.hu
inanity, now long, U lord, shall such an out
rageous system as that of slavery be permitted to
curse this nation. A system which can only be
sustained by making " tho offence of aiding
slave to run away and depart from his master's
ervice," punishable with DLAIH.

The Christian Citizen
N the 1st of January next, will he published i)t Wor
cester, Mass. tho first number pf a wepkly periodi
cal with the above title, to he edited by the subscriber.
It will aim to develope the Christian citizen into tli
full stiture of a perfect man, in the discharge of his Re
ligious, Social and Political duties. Avoiding all secta
rian tenets and controverted points of religious belief, it
will seek to extract fiom the spiiit of the Gospel, a pracr
tical Christianity, which shall pervade tl)e heart mid in
spiie all the actions of life. It will he devoted generally
to Active Keligton, and specifically to the cause of Anti
Slavery, Temperance, Peace, and Self-Eduealion; each,
of which wjll occupy a special deparlraent in every num
ber. Whilf! presenting all the moral, social, and pecuniary
bearings of Slavery, it will never admit the distorted fig
ures and noisy rhetoric of windy declamation, nor the
ha.rh phraseology of vindictive satire and ridicule. On
the contrary, it will test, on our Southern brethren, tho
cool, calm logic of Christian philosophy and love, the ten
der persuasion of reason, and thai irresistable argument
Self-Education. This department will commence,
with a series of Letters to an Apprentice, suggesting
studies, subjects of rejection, and rules of conduct, cal
culated todevelopu hie mind, and make him an eininont
artizan and useful citizen.
A condensed summary of the general news, extracts,
from current literature, and notices of new publications,
will be added, to make it an acceptable family piper.

of the Now York Daily Tribune, and published once
week, at one dollar per annum, in advance.
