The subjoined letter we find in a late number of

at "Vermont." We arc glad, for the ioxen's sake,
that he hails from no one in particular; and for
Ids posterity's sake, that he leaves no trace by
which the author can be identified.
' By the way, we think our democratic( ?) fellow
citizen, Col. Baylies, must feel flattered by tliis no

the recreant son of the Green Mountains, who will
exchange the freedom of his native hills for the
pollutions of slavery's Bastile, and engage in the
traffic in human flesh!
Vermont, l.t July, 1844.
Mr. Wilson I have been thinking of writing
you from the Green Hills of Vermont, for more
.thBU a year that is, ever since I left the beautiful
Attakapas but this thinking did not accomplish
the work, and I now sit down, to put sumo of my
thoughts in writing.
I have just returned from the whig State Con
vention, which assembled at Burlington, the 2Cth
of June. It was a rouser! With this letter, you
wi 1 1 receive a "Burlington Free Press," which
will afford you but a slight idea of the doings, he.
of the vast assemblage. I as a Vernionter by birth,
and a JLiOuisianan by adoption, am proud of this
occasion. The enthusiasm, the ardent devotion,
with which the whigs of 1840 now rush to the
conflict under the banner of Henry Clay, must
convince the generous people of the South, thnttill
the Green Mountain Boys are not boi,itionists.
This fanatical, misguided party, has its candid
ates, its banners, 8tc. But while a majority of
our freemen will vote for Kentucky's proud son
the Democratic party are united to man, underthe
banner of "Polk &, Texas," and will nundruple
the number of the abolitionists that will rally un
der Birney. The People of Vermont, in common
with the great mass of our Northern population,
ore opposed to slavery, opposed to having it
among ourselves here, and wo ild wish to see it
extinguished in the United States, could it be done
compatible with the interests and rights of the
South. ZJ tit knowing the incompatibility of
abolition, and the base motives that actuate the
principal actors in the abolition farce, they shrink
from all contact with them, and refuse to have
any sympathy for the ostensible object of their ag
itation. 1 am now giving what 1 understand to
be the real opinions and feelings of the mass of the
people ot Vermont. 1 find here quite a number
of both sexes, who have resided in the South.
They, with myself, are all united in one senti
mentand that is, if there be evil resulting
from the system of slavery in the United States, it
alone affects the whites and that so far as the
blacks are concerned, it is an absolute blessing
to them. I have never known a Vermonter, who
has resided in a slaveholding community for any
cconsiderable length of time, who did not fully con
cur in this sentiment! !
And hero, speaking of the Vermonters residing
In the south, permit me to congratulate you and
the good people of the Attakapas on the acquisi
tion you have made in the person and family of
Col. Horatio N. Baylies, for ninny years a leading
and most respectable citizen of Montpclier, the
capital of this State. He is a gentleman of con
siderable wealth, of amiable social qualities, pos
sessing business talents of the highest order; and
connected as he is, with many of the most respect
able families in New England, his loss here can
not but be as sensibly felt, as will be his gain to
the south, and especially to the already large num
ber of respectable families of St. Mary's.
Cob B has frequently represented Montpclier in
the State Legislature, and has held other impor
tant offices of honor and profit, anion'' us. The
Colonel returns to Louisiana next October, tak
ing most of his family with hi in and I bespeak for
him n warm, hearty reception.
pealing to the party prejudices of people abroad,
where the truth is not known, and, by such mis
representations, shake the confidence of people in
the distinctive character and specific design of the
Liberty party. This is what we did not expect
from the editor of the Watchman. Should a com
parative stranger treat us in this way, we should
be instinctively prompted to examine our hen
roost, or search our pockets, to see what petty de
predations had been committed. True, we oppose
the election of Henry Clay, and for reasons that
we should think would induce any intelligent, es
pecially every Christian man, to oppose him: the
Patriot also opposes Mr. Clay's election. It is
also true that the Patriot and Watchman both
strenuously oppose the Liberty party. Should we
therefore be justified in creating the impression a
broad that they were in league?
We know that our friends of the Watchman are
very ' peculiarly' situated, and the thousands tnat
they draw annually from the State treasury might
justify thorn in going to lho very verge of consci
entiousness: still, were the alternative fairly pre
sented, of continuing their government patronage,
or of seeing realized the glorious objects of the
Liberty party, of transforming one sixth of our
whole population from the condition of brute
beasts to that of rational, intelligent, accountable
beings, possessed of their own persons, their fam
ilies, citizenship, and all their God-given rights
we must express our decided preference for the
latter. Perhaps it is owing to our predilection
for ' locofocoism!'
Renunciations. The Whig papers are making
a great noise over "thirteen leading Liberty men"
of Pittsburgh, Pa., who have come out for Clay.
To show how much there is in this story, we give
the following from Win. H. Burleigh, editor of
the Christian Freeman:
But, a word about these ' 13 leading abolition
ists.' For nearly four years previous to our ta
king charge of this paper, we were a resident of
Pittsburgh, and for the most of that time was con
nected with the anti-slavery press in that city.
We lectured frequently in the city and vicinity,
and were personally acquainted with every 'lead
ing' or active abolitionist in the place. Yet of
these ' 13 ieading abolitionists,' we do not even
recognize the names of but seven and of this
number, there are but four whom we ever sus
pected of abolitionism. We do not affirm that
they are not we simply say that, though we were
personally acquainted with them, this is our first
knowledge ot the tact ot their aholitionism.
Of six of the thirteen we know nothing they
may have been abolitionists, or they may not
have been 'leading abolitionists' they certairly
were not, for we were in a position where, of ne
cessity, we became acquainted with all the active
friends of emancipation. Only four of the remain
ing seven were known to us as abolitionists and
three of these certainly were active whigs in the
spring of 1843 of the fourth we are not quite cer
tain, but our impression is that he also was a
whig. Only one of the thirteen was ever known
as a Liberty man, and he was by no means either
a 'leading' or influential member of the Liberty
party. So much for this boasted defection of '13
leading abolitionists.' We assure our reader?,
that we write from personal knowledge, and the
facts that we have here stated may bo implicitly
For the Freeman.
Hold the miscreant up, that freemen may
look at him !
Mr. Editor: We learn, from undoubted au
thority, that on Wednesday, the 14th of August
inst., a female was in open day caught, bound with
bed cords, and thrown into a wagon, (as a sheep
or a swine would be cast,) and started for the land
of slavery ! and this too iu the free air, amid the
free hills of Vermont, in the town of Hartford, in
Windsor county!! It seems that an animal, dres
sed like a man, (tho' it would be libelling human
ity to call him a man, because destitute of those
qualifications which constitute u man) by the name
of Bailey, from the State of Georgia, came into
Vermont a few weeks since on a visit to his rela
tives, bringing with him this female, whom hecal
lcd his slave. She having been informed that her
pretended 'owner' had no legal claim to her by our
laws, concluded that sho would for the future be
her own owner. She therefore left the place of
her 'master's' temporary residence, and sought a
retreat among some friends of suffering humanity
a few miles distant, until this Southern hyena, her
muster, should return to the 'chivalrous land of
robbery and blood. But this specimen of the 'no
ble generosity of the slaveholder,' was not thus to
be balked. He procured a miserable being, by the
name of Col. Samuel Nutt, of Hartford, a Justice
of the Peace for Windsor County, to turn
catchpole and ferret out tho lurking place of the
slave. And having found her place of retreat,
these two magnates, a Georgia slaveholder and a
Vermont magistrate, proceeded to bind their fellow
being hand and foot, in open day, in the presence
of seveial females, threw her into a wagon, and
the slaveholder drove off with his victim neither
of whom have benti since seen in the vicinity, and
ere this time, no doubt, she has suffered the full
measure of the penalty which slaveholders always
inflict on those 'chattels' who presume to think
themselves human beings and entitled to the rights
of humanity. -Vermonters!
what think ye of slavery on your
own Green Mountain soil ? What think ye of that
Bailey, the slaveholder? What a noble President
of the U. States lie would be! How he would
be careful to guard tho rights of the most bumble
individual of the community! But, freemen of
Vermont, that dastardly Bailey is no worse than
your Polk and your Clay. Nay not so bad.

1. "Ho that ruleth his own spirit is mightier

takes a man and a struggle to conquer himself.

ought to be visited with condign punishment; but

I regard him as a disgrace to the party; and

CO" Several of our whig editors and orators are
very mush alarmed for the sanctity of the Sabbath,
because the Rev. Orren Shipman, in holding a
series ot meetings in this State, has notified sever
al on the Lord's day, at which he announces for his
theme in preaching, the Biblical rights of man.
The Middlebury and St. Albans editors even call
upon the good people of their counties to frown
upon all such wicked attempts! Now, we profess
to hold the Sabbath as sacred as any one, but have
no fears of its being violated by a Biblical vie w
of the rights of man; and the sensitiveness of cer
tain persons upon this subject, while they deify an
open and flagrant violator of the Sabbath, looks a
good deal like straining at a gnat and swallowing
a camel. We commend to those pious minds the
following remarks of Henry Clay, made in the U.
S. Senate in 1843, in support of his motion to ad
journ to 10 o'clock on the Sabbath;
." He professed as great a regard for the Sab
bath and the laws of God as any man, but be re
garded legislation in the same light us an eminent
American professor did the science of mathemat

held the "nigger parly" in the most supreme con
tempt, all at once terribly alarmed for the cause
of anti slavery, and attempting to teach abolition
ists a more excellent way than to cany their prin
ciples to the polls! men who might even now be
taught the first principles of our enterprise from
an anti slavery almanac four years old, and who
have no more conception of, or regard for, the

Hon. Solomon Foot,
I invite the especial attention of the whigs in the
First Congressional District to the following facts.
They arc from two of the most respectable and
upright gentlemen in this district. The truth of
both may be relied on with the utmost confidence,
and if need be, can be established by oath in any
court of law. From Mr. Foot's refusing or de
clining to vote agaiist Mr. Campbell's wicked
resolve, denouncing all efforts on the part of Con
gress to take measures for the abolition of slavery
in the District of Columbia, after he hail been
solemnly requested by the legislature to do all in
his power to secure the object which that resolve
denounced, and from his attempts, since he came
home, to silence inquirers into the cause of this ap
parent violation of his instructions, instead of giv
ing a satisfactory explanation (if hecouW give such
explanation) had, to some extent shaken my confi
dence in his integrity, and led me to question the
propriety of his being again entrusted with the re
sponsibility of a representative of Vermont, when he
seemed so little disposed, or able, to face the slave
holders and to oppose slavery. But I was not pre
pared to regard him in the objectionable, not to say
degrading light, in which these extracts show him.
The w higs in this State, (multitudes of them at
least) have felt pained at the course of ilinr dele
gates in Congress, last winter, in relation to the
above named resolve. They forbore to complain,
because they doubted not that, on the return of
the delegation, an ample and satisfactory explan
ation would be given to the public. This explan
ation the whig members owed to themselves and
to the party. Their enemies were taking great
advantage of it to the injury of the whig cause.
And how has this just expectation been met? On
Mr. Foot's part the following extracts will show.
He is, it seems, to carry his point by blustering
and threats to wring the noses of those who ex
pose and oppose him. This St. Clair, whom he
threatens, your readers well know to be a third
party lecturer. He acted as chairman of a com
mittee which reported resolves to a convention
censuring Mr. Foot's course in Washington on
Campbell's anti abolition resolution. St. Clair also
made a speech, contrasting Mr. Foot's course on
this subject with his excellent anti-slavery speech
at the time of his nomination, nnd showing him up
in a ridiculous light. His threat to St. Clair,
however, is but n trifle, compared with his mur
derous declaration in relation to Polk. But to the
extracts. The first, as will be seen, is furnished
by one gentleman and the last two by another.
" The Hon. Mr. Foot threatens, publicly, to
wring St. Clair's nose, if he meets him between
this nnd tho election. I will,' says he, ' so help
me God.' This he said on the steps of the Hotel
at Rutland, on the 10th inst.
